Readers react. Last week we published an op-ed from Alianza for Progress Executive Director Marcos Vilar (“Op-ed: Orange County School Board must rename Stonewall Jackson Middle School,” Nov. 19). Vilar argues that the fouryear process of renaming Stonewall Jackson Middle School, which resulted in the proposed new name “Jackson Middle School,” is an embarrassing cop-out.

Women want equal pay, and the right to attend a strip club without a man; and they’re willing to do the time for milkshaking fuckwit state reps. Also, a heart-warming dog story and other news you may have missed. »

Strangely, Florida women want equal pay and they’re trying to pass laws to get it: The gender pay gap in Florida shows women earn 85 cents for every dollar a man makes, and last week, several women’s groups joined forces to help change Florida law – and the U.S. Constitution. State bills like the Sen. Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Protection Act, sponsored by Sen. Linda Stewart, D-Orange County, and Rep. Geraldine Thompson, D-44, would ban employers from compensating workers based on sex or gender identity. Kim Porteous, president of the Florida chapter of the National Organization for Women, would like to see Florida close the wage gap and also tip the scales on the ERA by ratifying it. “Virginia is lined up to be that 38th state, but we’ve been fighting hard for it here, too,” says Porteous.

Owner of two Orlando restaurants got caught shorting hourly workers $27,000: The U.S. Department of Labor announced in a press release this month that employees at two Chai Thai Cuisine restaurants in Orlando are owed $27,000 in back wages. The owner of the restaurants, Hong Saeunong, violated overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act, says the release. An investigation by the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division found Saeunong paid kitchen staff a flat rate per shift regardless of how many hours they worked during the shift. Even when kitchen staff logged more than 40 hours during the same workweek, Saeunong did not pay overtime, according to the press release. Split 17 ways, each employee will receive an average of over $1,500 in back pay.

ALTERNATE UNIVERSE

Donald Trump isn’t on trial. The Republican Party is BY JEFFREY C. BILL M A N

T

he most incisive moment of the impeachment inquiry’s public hearings came at the very end, on Thursday afternoon, courtesy of Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, the former federal prosecutor who had spent two weeks methodically constructing a case that Donald Trump had wantonly abused his office only to watch his Republican colleagues bury their heads in the sand. “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third-rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters,” Schiff said, referencing Watergate. “[This] is beyond anything Nixon did. The difference between then and now is not the difference between Nixon and Trump. It’s the difference between that Congress and this one.” Richard Nixon, of course, resigned in 1974 after top Republicans told him that the evidence of his crimes was too great to ignore. Forty-five years later, congressional Republicans are again faced with equally unassailable evidence of their president’s crimes; this time, they’ve closed ranks and chosen willful ignorance and conspiratorial fantasies. Schiff is correct: The impeachment of Donald Trump is no longer about Donald Trump. This is instead a trial of the Republican Party – and of the ability of our democratic institutions to serve as a check on a thoroughly corrupt would-be strongman. And both are going to fail the test. At the risk of beating a dead horse, there’s no ambiguity about what happened. As Gordon Sondland, Trump’s ambassador to the European Union – a hotel owner who literally purchased his post with a $1 million donation to Trump’s inaugural committee – had admitted a day earlier, there was a quid pro quo that came directly from the White House. Trump conditioned an Oval Office meeting with Ukraine’s new president – who, while

conservative media: “Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes and the others have fenced off conservative Americans from the rest of American society. Within that safe space, insiders hear only what is familiar and comforting.” Within this safe space – which has its own language, a hallucinogenic hodgepodge of names and catchphrases – the hearings didn’t produce a straightforward narrative of corruption but evidence of a Deep State cover-up. There is a “fake whistleblower” and a “Russia hoax” and a “Black Ledger” and collusion between a DNC operative and the Ukrainian embassy and – courtesy of Glenn Beck – a rehash of the (((George Soros)))-as-puppet-master trope. In this alternate universe, the real story isn’t the president abusing his office to further his re-election campaign, but of sinister forces conspiring against him. Rep. Devin Nunes and other Republicans on the Intelligence Committee used the hearings to put this alternate universe on full display and then became indignant when witnesses said they had no idea what the hell they were talkin American elections and attempting to ing about. As Frum puts it: “To those not extort that foreign interference by with- immersed in the fantasy franchise, people like Devin Nunes sound like crazy people. holding military aid to an ally.

That’s why Republicans are going to a red-versus-blue lens obscures a more dangerous reality: America’s dominant give Trump the pass their predecessors political party is fundamentally broken, didn’t give Nixon. The Republican Party is broken. And an authoritarian cult of personality locked the longer it stays in power, the more likein its own propaganda feedback loop. As George W.

Frum explains in The Atlantic, discussing feedback@orlandoweekly.com fighting a war with Russia, needed to demonstrate his deep ties to Washington – on the announcement of sham investigations into political rival Joe Biden and a debunked conspiracy theory that Ukraine had conspired with the Democrats to frame Russia for election interference in 2016. To up the ante, Trump then overruled his advisers and blocked nearly $400 million in military aid to assist Ukraine in their war with Russia. Sondland and everyone else could read between the lines, but there was no need to: In a July 25 phone call, Trump directly linked a request for military assistance to the “favor” of opening the investigations. Again, there’s no real dispute over the essential facts. Those facts show a president soliciting foreign interference

A TRUMP TAX BREAK TO HELP THE POOR WENT TO A,RICH GOP DONOR S SUPERYACHT MARINA. Wealthy Floridians Wayne Huizenga Jr. and Jeff Vinik lobbied then-Gov. Rick Scott for the lucrative tax break – and won it. Poorer communities lost out. BY JU STIN ELLIOTT, J EF F ER N ST HAU SEN A N D KYL E EDWA RDS, P ROP U BL I C A

he Rybovich superyacht marina lies on the West Palm Beach, Florida, waterfront, a short drive north from Mara-Lago. Superyachts, floating mansions that can stretch more than 300 feet and cost over $100 million, are serviced at the marina, and their owners enjoy Rybovich’s luxury resort amenities. Its Instagram account offers a glimpse into the rarefied world of the global 0.1 percent – as one post puts it, “What’s better than owning a yacht, owning a yacht with a helicopter of course!” Rybovich owner Wayne Huizenga Jr., son of the Waste Management and Blockbuster video billionaire Wayne Huizenga Sr., has long planned to build luxury apartment towers on the site, part of a development dubbed Marina Village. Those planned towers, and the superyacht marina itself, are now in an area designated as an opportunity zone under President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax code overhaul, qualifying them for a tax break program that is supposed to help the poor. Then-Florida Gov. Rick Scott bestowed the tax break on the marina after a direct appeal from Huizenga Jr., according to

a 2018 letter Huizenga Jr. wrote that was obtained by ProPublica. Huizenga and his family have been major donors to Scott. Even though the opportunity zone program is supposed to subsidize only new investment, Huizenga cited the already-planned Marina Village in his appeal to Scott. Noting the “significant private sector investment that is poised to take place,” Huizenga wrote, “This project has been planned for some time as part of the larger Marina Village initiative which incorporates the Rybovich working waterfront marina.” The state of Florida, based on an analysis of unemployment and poverty rates, had not originally intended to pick the census tract containing the

superyacht marina for the program. But those plans changed in response to Huizenga’s lobbying, according to documents from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity obtained by ProPublica. A little more than a week after the Huizenga letter, Scott announced his opportunity zone picks, which included the Rybovich marina area. At the same time, Scott rejected other, poorer tracts that the city of West Palm Beach had asked to be named opportunity zones. Two other Scott donors, both billionaires, also benefit: Jorge Pérez, the Related Group chairman and CEO known as the “condo king of South Florida”; and Stephen Ross, a prominent Trump fundraiser, real

estate magnate, and Miami Dolphins and Equinox gym part-owner. Ross’ Related Companies owns a quarter of Related Group, which is Rybovich’s partner on the planned Marina Village development. It’s unclear how valuable the tax break could be, and the public may never know because the Trump law included no public reporting requirements. But Pérez recently boasted that the new subsidy would add jet fuel to the investment returns, telling Bloomberg this year: “It worked as a market-rate rental. Now, it works that much better as an opportunity zone.” Huizenga and Pérez weren’t the only beneficiaries of Scott’s largesse. In a separate case in Tampa, the Florida documents show, Scott made a wealthy

downtown area an opportunity zone at the request of a firm controlled by yet another billionaire donor, Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik. This, too, does not involve a new investment. Since as early as 2014, Vinik has been planning a massive redevelopment project in the area that will include luxury residences, hotels and shops. Trump has hailed the opportunity zone program. Opportunity zones “are doing unbelievably well. And you’ll see that, and you’ve already seen it,” he said in August. “And the biggest beneficiary there is African Americans.” But in Florida, the tract selections highlight one significant vulnerability in the opportunity zone

process. The Trump tax law gave governors the authority to distribute valuable tax breaks, and they have wielded it to benefit the politically connected. “That’s the real scary part of this program, that you give such incredible power to politicians to designate zones,” says Nathan Jensen, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin who studies economic development. “The fact that this process was not transparent in almost any state is shocking.” Previous revelations about billionaires taking advantage of the opportunity zone program for already-planned developments in wealthy areas have spurred congressional scrutiny. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, introduced a bill to overhaul the program, while Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, has called for it to be abolished. A spokesman for Scott, who is now one of Florida’s U.S. senators, declined to comment on the superyacht marina case but said in a statement: “Then-Governor Scott’s focus was on supporting job creation in low-income areas in the state, based on federal requirements and what would offer the best return on taxpayer dollars. That’s what guided every decision he made.” In a statement, Rybovich President Carlos Vidueira denied the firm had sought the tax break for its own benefit. “The motivation to seek approval of an Opportunity Zone designation was to create incentives for redevelopment by third parties in the surrounding neighborhood. The letter was not motivated by an attempt to create incentives for Rybovich” or the Related Group, he said. He pointed to the firm’s support of a nonprofit effort to revitalize the area called Purpose Built Communities, which aims to create affordable housing and jobs. Vidueira added that “Rybovich has never planned the use of any Opportunity Zone tax deferment for its property.” He declined to comment on whether it might raise money from other investors taking advantage of the tax break, or on Related Group’s stated plans to use the tax break. Related Group’s general counsel, Betsy McCoy, said the firm “had no involvement in former Governor Scott’s designation of Florida’s Opportunity Zones.” She added Related Group first learned of the tax break when the governor’s press release went out. A spokeswoman for Ross’ Related Companies did not respond to questions. The opportunity zone tax break was pitched as the prime antipoverty measure of Trump’s signature legislative achievement, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. An idea that drew bipartisan support – notably from Sen. Cory Booker, D-New Jersey – the program is supposed to incentivize investors to direct their capital to needy areas. In exchange, they get a lucrative break on capital gains taxes. After the new law passed, there was a brief, high-stakes window at the start of 2018 when decisions were made. First, the Treasury Department drew up a list of eligible census tracts based on income and poverty data. Then each governor selected a quarter of the tracts in their state for opportunity zone status. Finally, the Treasury OK’d those picks. The process gave enormous autonomy to the governors, especially because the Treasury applied little scrutiny to the selections before approving them. In the newly designated opportunity zones, investors get a trio of subsidies. If investors take capital gains – generated, for example, by the sale of stock that has increased in value – and put it into a deal in one of the zones, they don’t have to pay capital gains tax up front. Later, their tax bills are trimmed. And, most important, any appreciation on the new investment in the opportunity zone is tax-free after a decade. The designation was an immediate boon to owners of property within the selected areas. Values on development sites went up on the expectation that new investment could come in, studies suggest.

When the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity created a statistical model incorporating unemployment rate, poverty and population density to come up with a list of opportunity zone picks, Huizenga’s superyacht tract was not included, according to the Florida agency’s internal documents. City leaders identified three other tracts in the North End of West Palm Beach as their top picks to be opportunity zones. All three are poor. “The core tracts of the North End are racially and ethnically diverse, with a population of approximately 57,000 people, of which over 65 percent earn less than $15,000 per year,” according to a city memo. They were also attractive areas for growth. All “are rebounding from significant blight and are well positioned for new investment,” the memo said. The tract with the superyacht marina was wealthier and whiter than the tracts identified by city leaders. Based on median income, it is hardly rich. But the area is testament to how the overall economic data of a single census tract can mask pockets of extreme wealth. On North Flagler Drive along the Intracoastal Waterway, multimillion-dollar mansions dot the waterfront, obstructed from street view by walls and palm trees. Last year, Rybovich’s Huizenga bought a $5 million property from Rosie O’Donnell there, down the road from the superyacht marina. Sylvia Moffett, a former West Palm Beach city commissioner, says in an interview there is little connection between the predominantly poor areas of the North End and the wealthy stretch of waterfront. “The houses along the Intracoastal get torn down and rebuilt a lot. Mansions go up,” she says. In an April 2018 letter addressed to Scott, Huizenga made his pitch to the governor to add the superyacht tract and two others. He cited the Rybovich-Related Marina Village project: “Within these census tracts, The Related Group is planning to invest $120 million into the construction of a new rental residential building that is scheduled to break ground in the first quarter of 2019,” Huizenga wrote. He also noted Rybovich support for a “community based initiative that will be bringing hundreds of jobs” to the area. Rybovich officials got the city of West Palm Beach to amend its initial requests to the state to add the superyacht tract, emails show. The city added the new areas because of “expressed interest by a major local employer,” a West Palm Beach official wrote to the state economic development agency. Huizenga’s letter was included in the city’s recommendations submitted to the state. A Florida Department of Economic Opportunity document subsequently listed the superyacht tract under Rybovich’s name, marked as “Added From Request.” A week later, on April 19, Scott announced his selections for the opportunity zone tax break, the superyacht tract among them. In a press release about

the West Palm Beach picks, a Florida official said the program “will continue our progress in revitalizing low-income and rural regions of the state.” Two out of three of West Palm Beach’s original, poverty-stricken priority areas did not make Scott’s cut. A Scott spokesman declined to comment on his specific decisions. West Palm Beach did not respond to requests for comment. A Florida Department of Economic Opportunity spokeswoman said in a statement that the agency “accepted input from communities across the state, including local government, business leaders, economic development organizations and investors. … Governor Scott ultimately made all decisions on which census tracts were nominated as opportunity zones.” The plans for the Marina Village project have changed several times, and it has not started on schedule. But last year, the developers announced rents would be up to $3,000 a month for onebedroom units and $4,500 for three-bedroom units, plus penthouses for an undisclosed sum. The project is physically oriented away from the poor parts of the census tract, where schools are struggling and the crime rate is high. The chairman and founder of Related Companies, Ross, along with Pérez and Huizenga, are all donors to Scott. Collectively, they and their families have given at least $1 million to Scott and the Florida GOP in the last decade. In 2013, Scott gave Wayne Huizenga Sr. a Great Floridian award, the state’s rough equivalent of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He died last year. Another politically connected developer successfully lobbied Scott for an opportunity zone, for yet another already-planned project, this time in Tampa. As far back as 2014, Vinik, the Tampa Bay Lightning owner, has had his eye on redeveloping a swath of the city’s downtown surrounding his hockey team’s arena. In mid-2017, Strategic

Property Partners, a joint venture between Vinik and Bill Gates’ Cascade Investment, announced a $3 billion redevelopment plan for the area. The project, Water Street Tampa, is slated to include luxury apartments, hotels, stores and restaurants catering to Tampa’s growing millennial population. In early 2018, documents show that Vinik’s firm, along with the city of Tampa, requested that the area for the investment be made an opportunity zone. Vinik has given hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to Scott in recent years. Scott picked the tract that contains most of the development for the tax break. The tract has a median family income almost twice as high as the Tampa metro area, placing it among the top 0.5 percent of opportunity zones nationwide in terms of income. In a statement, Strategic Property Partners defended the area’s designation, saying: “Downtown Tampa has long been a candidate for development and the establishment of Opportunity Zones has helped increase and accelerate investment. Water Street Tampa is transforming a vacant area of land in downtown Tampa into a new community within the city.” While the law gave the Treasury the power to vet the selections of each governor, the agency appears to have simply rubber-stamped the picks, says Brett Theodos, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute who studies opportunity zones. “Treasury appeared to elect for the lowest common denominator screening, to just make sure tracts were technically eligible,” Theodos says. “We have yet to hear that Treasury ever denied a nominated zone because it didn’t fit within the spirit of the objective of the program.” In response to that criticism, a Treasury spokesman said that the opportunity zone provision of the tax law “gave governors the discretion to nominate areas for designation as Opportunity Zones. The Department had a limited role in the process.”

Collectively, Ross, Pérez and Huizenga and their families have given at least $1 million to Scott and the Florida GOP in the last decade. Vinik has given hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to Scott in recent years.

New roller coasters, new technologies and new forms of fried food fuel attendees at the annual IAAPA Expo MONDAYS, AMIRITE? SALLY’S GARFIELD ATTRACTION AT IAAPA | PHOTO BY SETH KUBERSKY

This year, I’m going into Turkey that will ride Iron Gwazi’s rails once con- projection mapping. And in a tent outside Day thankful for having survived my 13th visit to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions’ annual IAAPA Expo. Fueled by little more than free samples of unidentifiable fried objects, I put in over 20,000 steps crisscrossing the Orange County Convention Center seeking out sneak peeks of the future of themed entertainment. Here are some of the intriguing innovations and up-and-coming trends that caught my eye: As usual, Universal and Disney didn’t make an official appearance on the show floor, but a Legends discussion panel hosted by Bob Rogers of BRC Imagination Arts offered some in-depth insight into the new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge from the Imagineers who created it. Creative director Chris Beatty drew some backlash on my Twitter feed for suggesting that the impressively detailed land itself is the “third attraction,” after the Millennium Falcon simulator and the yet-to-open Rise of the Resistance dark ride. But project lead Scott Trowbridge promises fans, “We’re just getting started,” saying that further additions are “coming down the pike” beyond the previously announced Galactic Starcruiser hotel and implying that more live entertainment and Datapad interactive missions are in the works. Some of the biggest unveilings on the IAAPA show floor were of ride vehicles for upcoming Florida-bound roller coasters. Premiere Rides showed off a teal twoby-three-seat train with over-the-shoulder restraints for Icebreaker, an Arcticthemed quad-launched coaster coming to SeaWorld Orlando in spring 2020; they also distributed a technical fact sheet revealing a surprisingly small hourly capacity of 680-810 riders per hour. Rocky Mountain Construction showed off the stylized crocodile-shaped cars (with lap restraints only)

version of Busch Gardens Tampa’s defunct wooden coaster into a steel hybrid is completed next year. And Shaq himself showed up to squeeze onto the jet ski-style vehicle for Bolt, the first-of-its-kind powered coaster being installed aboard Carnival’s Mardi Gras cruise ship, which sets sail out of Port Canaveral next fall. Although the trackless vehicle that ETF unveiled for Legoland’s Lego Factory Adventure is only announced for the under-construction New York resort, the ride – or at least the Holovis video technology used to transform guests into yellow mini-fig toys – would be a perfect fit for their Lakeland park. One ride I pray isn’t coming to Florida: SBF Visa demonstrated a small roller coaster whose car spins vertically, randomly flipping riders headover-heels like a possessed hamster wheel. I took one for the team, and limped away with a throbbing collarbone. Fun Spot representatives were spotted checking out the booth. For the sake of their guests’ spines, I hope they were only kicking the tires. Now that any consumer can pick up a $400 stand-alone Oculus Quest virtual reality headset (which I saw being used in several IAAPA demos), VR is being passed over by the major park players, instead finding a home in smaller location-based experiences and arcades. However, there’s still some exciting potential in augmented reality, which blends CGI with the real world. Korea’s Lotte World showed off their charming Micro Venture dark ride simulator, where riders experience the real-time POV of a miniature train traveling through an elaborate model.

Free fair food is always an important factor at IAAPA, and once again Beaver Tails drew the longest lines with hot samples of their chocolate-smothered doughy delights. This year, they doubled down by dousing them in frozen ice cream balls from Dippin’ Dots, who brought their cuddly new mascot “Frozeti” to the expo. My favorite freebie, however, was the generously full-sized sample from Ben’s Soft Pretzels, an Amish-inspired outfit from Indiana making their first appearance at IAAPA. While Orlando remains the center of the theme park universe, the majority of new projects are bound for the Middle East and Asia – even an All-American IP like Sally Dark Rides’ Garfield attraction is going first to Six Flags in China. Dynamic Attractions headquarters their design business in Orlando, but their latest blockbusters – like the Batman robotic arm simulator at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi and the dueling motorcycle-powered coaster at Resorts World Genting in Malaysia – have all landed overseas. So why do industry leaders stay in Central Florida? As Dynamic’s communications director John Kageorge told me, “This is definitely fun central, and there are so many suppliers that collaborate in a very friendly way. Sometimes there’s no dollars that exchange at the end of the day, but a concept moves forward. You can’t find those conversations in a bar in Romania or a cafe in Buenos Aires, but it happens here in the Starbucks line in Orlando.” skubersky@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

DELANEY’S TAVERN

Delaney’s Tavern in SoDo carries mass allure BY FAIYAZ KARA

D

elaney’s Tavern: It’s a hotel restaurant. It’s a neighborhood bar. It’s got a menu comprised of the globe’s greatest hits. It’s the “something for everyone” brand of eatery that won’t blow studied gastronomes away, but won’t disappoint them either. A “Cheers-style” joint “for family, friends, locals and visitors to Orlando” says the marketing-speak on their website. Walls are decked with pop culture icons through the ages – Dylan, the Dude, DiCaprio. Like I said, something for everyone. The menu of shareables falls under the auspices of Anthony Albino, who knows a thing or two about shareables, having served plenty a small plate at Santiago’s Bodega as well as the very short-lived bàcaro Tre Bambine. It’s hard not to wince when you see tacos, Cuban sandwiches, baba ghanoush, vegan paella, and shrimp and grits listed on one bill of fare, but if reviewing restaurants has proven one thing, it has, on occasion, proven me wrong. Sitting in that very attractive lounge listening to our gracious server describe one dish to the next, we tried really hard to mask the snickering taking place in our

bumptious little brains. Didn’t help that the “magic martini” ($14) we sipped while giving the menu a once-over failed to bedazzle. The drink comprised of, among other things, butterfly pea extract was supposed to have a polychromatic effect when drops of lemon were added to the cocktail. Given the dim lighting above our high-top, a stable purple was about the only color we could discern. The bar manager (Brett Counts, who also came over from Santiago’s Bodega) conceded it’s a drink best enjoyed under more illuminated circumstances – like over at the bar, not in the dining area toward the back of the restaurant. That room’s gloomy gray seems more fitting for necrologists, or possibly the English, but light or no light, we were colored impressed at the sight of blue crab beignets ($13) dressed with horseradish aioli and nested into a slaw of apple and fennel. They were crabby enough, sure, but when they drew comparisons to Tori Tori’s blue crab croquettes, well, you know that they were legit good. Same goes for brie baked in puff pastry ($12), even if the promised maple-apple gastrique was replaced with a tart/sweet

OPENINGS Taglish, the Filipino-American eatery by former Bento Group culinary director Mike Collantes and Bento Group’s Jimmy and Johnny Tung, has opened inside

cherry version. Adding spiced dark cherries to the plate was a nice touch. “Shrimp tikka masala over here,” said my dining comrade, staring down at a plate of shrimp and grits ($22). The remark was in reference to the orangey hue of the sundried tomato cream sauce slathered over shrimp, scallops, tasso and purple rice grits. Some peppery heat was needed, but there’s no debating Albino’s rendition does the Lowcountry proud. “Scallops” also dotted the vegan paella ($15) – fashioned from the cut stems of baby bellas. Pillowy soft, yes. Sweet? Not so much. Can’t say if the dish was made in a paella pan or not, but there were bits of socarrat and the sofrito, unlike that martini, was magic. Additional veg included artichokes, toy box tomatoes, asparagus and the best grilled tofu. An ancho chile-rubbed flank steak ($22) lay on the other end of the -vore spectrum, every medium-rare bite outmatched by a stirring Southwest potato hash. That cherry gastrique made a return appearance in the quatro leches cake ($7), which led to a bit of a flavor confusion. Use of the fourth “leche” (coconut) was just too heavy. Coconut milk was far better employed in the “orange creamsicle” ($12), a dessert cocktail with Ketel orange, Licor 43, orange juice and mango puree. It goes down easy and its appeal, much like Delaney’s Tavern itself, is broad. Cheers. fkara@orlandoweekly.com

MAKANI

Prices are steep, but Makani’s fare celebrating Egypt’s contributions to world cuisine are top-notch. In addition to street food staples like carb-heavy koshary, spiced kebda (beef liver) and hawawshi (pita stuffed with minced beef), there are plush kebabs, earthy stews and syrupy sweets.

HUMBL

The pizzas steal the show at this slick new vegan joint in deepest Windermere. The focaccia-like crust stands up to vegetable toppings (sogginess being a classic vegan pizza fail) and those toppings are fantastic: The perversely named “Meat Lovers” has roasted cauliflower, shiitake “bacon” slices, fennel-farro “sausage” crumbles and dollops of macadamia-nut “ricotta.” Also of positive note: perfect fries, an Indian-spiced grain bowl and thick-asa-concrete milkshakes. 5845 Winter Garden Vineland Road, Windermere, 407-349-8800; $$

It’s out with the old and in with the new as the old Amura on Church Street gets a long-overdue rebrand.

CAFÉ 34 ISTANBUL

The city’s only 24-hour Turkish restaurant means kebabophiles can indulge in some of the most luscious, lip-greasing meats any time of day, though raki drinkers will have to take a break from the hours of 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. Much of the action takes place on the restaurant’s sprawling patio and let’s just say it’s a mesmerizing scene, especially after 10 p.m. Things are a lot more quiet inside. 8255 International Drive, 407-6017712; $$

HOURGLASS SOCIAL HOUSE

Straddling the line between café and food hall, the Hourglass Social House offers a diverse array of food options – Mexican, Vietnamese, French pastries, vegan handhelds – not to mention beverages aplenty. Foxtail Coffee gets the morning crowd jacked, while the market stocks a nice selection of wine, beer, kombucha and juice.

BY CAMERON MEIE R

n 2012, baseball was dropped from the Olympics. Thankfully, it’s been added back for the 2020 games. But let me propose another addition: genre-juggling, with writer-director Rian Johnson one of the favorites to win gold. Admittedly, my sports metaphor might be a bridge too far, but balancing genres is one of the toughest challenges for any filmmaker. It takes a backseat to no other aesthetic accomplishment. That is why Johnson’s juxtaposition of comedy, drama and mystery in his latest film, Knives Out, deserves praise. And it’s all the more noteworthy considering his previous two productions (Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi and Looper) dabbled in genres vastly different from his new movie. Knives Out is the story of a dysfunctional family assembled to celebrate the 85th birthday of their patriarch, crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), at his extravagant Massachusetts mansion. But when Harlan turns up dead, everyone is a suspect. Most family members initially assume suicide, but if Harlan slit his own

cheesy movies. Saturday, 8 pm; Hard Rock

throat, why did an anonymous person hire famous detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) to question each member of the Thrombey clan? In many ways, Knives Out is a classic suspense film in the vein of Murder on the Orient Express, with a stellar ensemble and at least one red herring. But the movie is fishy in other ways too, as it both honors and subverts classic mystery conventions, turning the plot into just as much of a “howdunit” as a “whodunit.” Cinematically located between Sleuth and Clue, it owes a great deal to both, though it’s substantially less impressive than the former and noticeably better than the latter. (Look closely and you might spot props similar to those in the former film, which starred Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine and remains a masterpiece of the genre.) But even Sleuth didn’t dare insert as much cheeky, irreverent comedy as Johnson does. Clue did, but its drama and suspense suffered. Not so for Knives Out, which doesn’t sacrifice tension and even manages to work in timely social commentary without appearing heavy-handed or preachy.

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● NOV. 27-DEC. 3, 2019 ● orlandoweekly.com

Though each actor’s time is limited, all the characters are distinct, which is no small task considering the story involves more than a dozen important players. Craig – having a blast with an infectious Southern drawl – is uncharacteristically hilarious and a joy to behold. Michael Shannon and Chris Evans are also effective, as is Plummer, who seemingly either dies or is close to death in almost all his recent films. Toni Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis and Don Johnson have their moments too, despite brief screen time, though Johnson seems a bit lost. And it’s a pleasure to see Frank Oz and M. Emmet Walsh in cameos. But the breakout star is Cuban actress Ana de Armas, who, as Harlan’s caregiver, outshines everyone by doing most of the film’s narrative and dramatic heavy lifting. “The guy practically lives in a Clue board,” someone says about Harlan. And for just over two hours, you’ll love living in a game board too, surrounded by charming production design, smart writing, tight editing and not a single computer-generated spectacle. In an industry that often dumbs you down, Knives Out raises your IQ. feedback@orlandoweekly.com

Mark Ruffalo in Dark Waters PHOTO COURTESY FOCUS FEATURES

BY STEVE SCHN EI D ER

OPENING THIS WEEK: Dark Waters Twenty-four years after Safe, director Todd Haynes returns to the theme of environmental illness with Dark Waters, a corporate-intrigue drama based on the true story of a lawyer who tried to bring the DuPont Corporation to justice for poisoning unsuspecting Americans. Shades of Erin Brockovich, amirite? But don’t expect to see Julia Roberts in the lead role, because she was apparently too busy licking her wounds over losing the part of Harriet Tubman or something. Instead, our driven hero is played by Mark Ruffalo, who was last seen upending the entire space-time continuum of the Marvel Universe and here faces the even more daunting task of trying to eke an ounce of contrition out of an American conglomerate. Reportedly, director Haynes has taken an intimate approach to the material, focusing on the personal changes wreaked upon the Ruffalo character by his righteous crusade. For one thing, it threatens his marriage to Anne Hathaway. See? There’s always a silver lining! (PG-13; opens Friday) Queen & Slim It’s taken the release of a movie like Queen & Slim to finally make me realize just what I found so distasteful about Natural Born Killers (other than the obvious stuff, I mean, like the involvement of Oliver Stone and it sucking). Dithering over the questionable morality of making murderers folk heroes is an activity that’s just so damn white – pure dilettantism compared to the experience of being a person of color living in

a society that’s almost daring you to not be violent. That’s the conundrum facing the titular characters in filmmaker Melina Matsoukas’ provocative lovers-on-the lam story, in which an incident of police harassment turns deadly. The character of Slim is portrayed by Daniel Kaluuya, who must have let his experience in Get Out lull him into a false sense of security when it comes to cop cars. Meanwhile, in the part of Queen, we have Jodie Turner-Smith of The Neon Demon. I guess she’ll just consider it a step up if no one eats her this time. (R; opens Wednesday) Waves It’s always a red-letter day when a film comes out that accurately depicts what it’s like to live in Florida, whether that means living in a shitty hotel on International Drive or hanging around a dive bar waiting to get shot by Aileen Wuornos. Like The Florida Project and Monster before it, Waves is not only set in the Sunshine State but was filmed here as well, drawing upon our deep reservoir of acting talent for supporting roles: Backing up Sterling K. Brown in this story of a South Florida father whose family has more than its share of hardships are distinguished area thesps like Rachel Comeau and Holland Hayes.

DON’T BACK DOWN

Punk rock agitators the Queers are still loud and lewd BY BILL FORMAN

I

magine notorious punk-rock stalwart Joe Queer sitting alone in a van, parked outside a Rhode Island bar called Patty’s Beach Club, and surrounded by throngs of young partiers who look like they just wandered off the set of a low-rent MTV Spring Break. “Our backstage is on a beach, and there’s not much privacy,” says the Queers frontman. “There are a bunch of 20-somethings running around with captain hats and sunburns, all vaping and drunk. We don’t play for a few hours, so I’m just going to hang out in the van.” After decades of filling mosh pits and stirring up controversies, the New Hampshire native, whose real name is Joseph P. King, can take pretty much anything in stride. In the nearly three decades since releasing their prematurely titled debut album Grow Up, the Queers have played countless stages, gone through dozens of bandmates, and indulged in more than their share of touring-musician habits. But even a punk-pop band known for live

favorites like “Punk Rock Girls” and “Kicked out of the Webelos” is likely to grow up sooner or later. “Usually when we go on tour, we don’t drink,” says King. “We’re too busy. Everything focuses around the band and the show. We’re pretty serious about it.” There have, of course, been exceptions, like the infamous mid-song brawl between band members when their drunken former bassist joined them onstage during a 2015 performance in San Diego. “He got onstage and he started acting like a jerk, but I didn’t see him knock the drums over continually,” says King of the incident, which has racked up more than 80,000 YouTube views. “And then [guitarist] Chris Fields hit him in the face, and all hell broke loose.” But that’s all water under the bridge now. “The next day he apologized,” says King, “and I was just like, ‘No problem.’ I understand, people have forgiven me in the past. Plus, he didn’t ruin the show, so we’re all friends now.”

Onstage, the Queers also have a flair for absurdist cover songs like “I Enjoy Being a Boy,” which was originally recorded by the funny-animal kid’s show band the Banana Splits. They also released a track-by-track rendition of the Ramones’ Rocket to Russia album, the mention of which prompts a particularly bittersweet memory. “This is a true story,” King remembers. “Back in the day, we got to be pals with the Ramones, and I sent a four-song cassette tape to Joey Ramone. He told me that he really liked them, which was a real ego boost for me, and asked me to work on songs for the solo album he was making. I was like, ‘Oh, man, my hero wants to work with me!’ And I really had to pinch myself, I was just like walking on air for a few weeks.” Joey subsequently sent King a cassette tape of a song called “I Wanna Be Happy.” “It was just one verse of him singing and playing acoustic guitar, and Ben Weasel from Screeching Weasel and I did the bridge and chorus,” King says. “But it was too late. He got too sick to sing it.” The Ramones bandleader died in 2001, leaving King and Ben Weasel to release their own version a year later. Today, the Queers are as busy as ever. More so, actually. “For the past 15 years, I’ve thought the band was going to slow down,” says King, “but we did 130 shows last year, and this year we’re going to do 140. It’s unreal.” The group continues to release new albums and King still devotes time to producing bands he likes, a habit that goes back to him recording the debut album by Colorado Springs punk heroes the Nobodys. He’ll also continue to deal with controversies first set in motion by that fateful choice of band name. “We thought it would piss people off, so that’s why we liked it,” says the equal-opportunity offender. “We got shit from rednecks when we used to tour with Pansy Division.” King, who says he’s so leftist that he’s “over the cliff,” misses a music scene where irreverence was still the norm. “When I started out years ago, people had more of a sense of humor,” he says. “We used to laugh at this stuff … And now there are things you can’t goof around about. They’re serious, you know what I mean? It’s a weird, weird time.” music@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

BY B AO L E - H U U HUMAN HOST | PHOTO BY JEN CRAY

No politics at the Thanksgiving

table, people. Let’s just enjoy our feast in peace, however illusory. Can we have that at least? This week, a royal bomba family shakes up the In-Between Series and a menagerie of experimental sounds yields strange magic in Mills 50.

Human Host makes mutant, microcosmic pop that’s complete without any obvious references, which is a holy grail for forwardthinking music

THE IN-BETWEEN SERIES: AFRO-PUERTO RICAN RHYTHMS, CITYARTS, NOV. 18 dance qua dialogue. And when the

Usually, the headliners of the excellent art music series the In-Between Series are the actual artists. The star of this latest one, however, was much bigger than the individual performers. The artists included a percussion line led by accomplished local musician Dimas Sanchez and a dance group led by dance director Bárbara Liz Cepeda, but the feature was their heritage of Afro-Puerto Rican rhythm writ large. Since the focus was more on the art form than the practitioners, this edition had a more directly educational format than others of the In-Between Series. For crucial context, Sanchez opened with a background of the historical and cultural forces that gave rise to the AfroPuerto Rican traditions of bomba and plena, many of which should be especially familiar to people from our corner of America. These native styles, particularly bomba, involve both music and dance, which explains why there were performers from the two disciplines to represent. Each director gave a breakdown and demonstration of the basic building blocks of their respective field. Once that framework was laid, the entire cast sprang into performance. At its essence, bomba is music and

players and dancers from local school Escuela de Bomba y Plena Tata Cepeda performed, it was an all-in hive of sound and kinesis. Over a dozen people strong, the group moved as a swirling ensemble organism. It was a consummation of the connection between dancer and drummer that was both communal and individually expressive. It rumbled and popped with the brilliant pulse of culture, history and life. The In-Between Series has never been this uncorked. Although the evening’s focus was resolutely on the tradition of bomba and plena, it’s very much worth noting that many of the performers in the house were direct descendants of Rafael Cepeda, the famed Puerto Rican cultural savior dubbed the “Patriarch of the Bomba and Plena.” (Dance director Bárbara Liz Cepeda is his great-granddaughter.) It’s always a thrill being in the presence of talent, but it’s a rare honor when it’s from a group with such pedigree.

HUMAN HOST, TTN, FORMALDEHYDRA AND COLETTE PARISA, GRUMPY’S, NOV. 17

It’s hard to characterize anything that happens at Orlando’s underground experimental shows as usual or typical.

That held true at a recent noise showcase in Mills 50. Take Lakeland noise act Formaldehydra, for example, who coaxed much mileage from a small metal lantern shade and lots of sonic manipulation to paint a realm of atmosphere and apocalypse. Or St. Pete artist Colette Parisa, who loops and layers with all manner of instruments, samples, ambient voice and noise to shape sonically diverse soundscapes. Even more known quantities like Orlando’s TTN – an industrial band that play almost all their electronic parts manually and prominently feature a riff-riding guitarist that seems straight out of a headbanger act – still prove uncommon in their own class. Once in a lucky while, however, a true surprise revelation emerges from the depths. On this night it was Human Host, the solo vehicle for Pennsylvania musician Mike Apichella, who deals in otherworldly music that defies convenient taxonomy. To call it psychedelic would be lazy. Rather, it’s mutant, microcosmic pop that is complete without any obvious references, which is a holy grail for forward-thinking music. That’s not the only miracle Human Host manages. Utterly and fundamentally strange though it is, his music isn’t vague, impressionistic or accidental in the way many experimental artists are. The artistic aim and language are cryptic, but his craft is clear and immediate. Between the melodic and percussive keyboard playing and the sound effects, it was all executed with design, control and purpose. And it rendered an extraordinary little world unto itself, a focused plane where mystery and mastery are one. baolehuu@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

AAHZ Thanksgiving Eve MUSIC

As this week is typically centered around reunions and homecomings with family, it only makes sense to do the same with chosen family. I mean, if you danced, laughed, cried, and experienced (possibly chemically fueled) epiphanies weekly with the same people, that checks most of the boxes for familial bonds, right? And so it is that AAHZ throws their annual Thanksgiving Eve blowout, reuniting the musical extended clan that formed the backbone of the influential “Florida Breaks” scene of the 1990s. This year’s event is all heavy hitters: the ever-present DJ Icey and Kimball Collins (doing a vinyl set!), joined by the resurgent Baby Anne (for an “Old School Bass” set), progressive house maestro Dave Cannalte, and Stace Bass as host. Red eyes and a headache the next day are a small price to pay. – Matthew Moyer 9 p.m. | The Beacham, 46 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | beachamorlando.com | $20-$100 DJ Icey

Morse Museum Open House ART

Thanksgiving is a holiday dedicated to overindulgence, and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum is helping you do that with your eyes and brain, too, this weekend. This new event is the fourth full-weekend open house hosted this year. In addition to spoiling yourself and your family with extra servings of turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and way too much pie, cater to the mind and soul by basking in the work of artists and designers like Louis Comfort Tiffany and more. At the very least, all the standing and walking around will take care of some of the extra calories. – Wavanie Henry 9:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday, 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, 1-4 p.m. Sunday | Morse Museum of American Art, 445 N. Park Ave., Winter Park | 407-645-5311 | morsemuseum.org | free

Caleb Caudle

Last year, the little Thanksgiving break songwriter gathering that esteemed Orlando musician and photographer Mike Dunn began four years ago officially mushroomed into a festival. This year, it’s reprising as a blowout weekend takeover of the entire Will’s Pub compound, even leveling up with some impressive national talent like the Lone Bellow’s Zach Williams, North Carolina standout Caleb Caudle and Knoxville favorite Matt Woods to bring added luster to the stacked lineup of over 40 of Florida’s leading roots and Americana artists. It’s a select stampede that includes royalty like Have Gun, Will Travel, Terri Binion and Will Quinlan alongside new risers such as Matthew Fowler, Whyte Tygers, Jordan Foley & the Wheelhouse and Patrick Hagerman. Even amid all those highlights, though, expect Saturday’s tribute to late Orlando musician Richard Sherfey to be particularly special (last year’s Folk Yeah was the final time we saw Sherfey perform) as noted guitarist CJ Mask leads an all-star cast across Sherfey’s catalog with guest vocalists. Folk Yeah is becoming an Orlando autumn tradition. – Bao Le-Huu 5 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $20-$35


Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 30-Dec. 1

FusionFest EVENTS

FusionFest’s tagline, “It’s Diversitastic!” is awkward, yes. But “diverse” is the best way to describe the fantastic two-day multicultural turn-up that was last year’s inaugural event, which had participants from more than 100 heritages hold a parade and share traditions in food, art, fashion, music and film with over 8,000 people. FusionFest is back again, earnestly seeking out and commemorating what they say is Central Florida’s some 140 identified heritages. On the same day, you can see traditional Jamaican and Indonesian dancers, send your tastebuds on a trip around the globe, or craft a mini international film festival and catch flicks by directors from places like Poland, Japan and Nigeria. FusionFest looks to be a tradition of its own, a yearly showcase of what makes varying local heritages unique, and a celebration of the regional melting pot. – Solomon Gustavo 12:30 p.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, 12:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Sunday | Seneff Arts Plaza, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | fusionfest.org | free

Holiday Market Weekend EVENTS

Every year, without fail, there’s one weekend where the forces of holiday shopping convene to create the perfect storm of pop-up markets all around town. This year, it’s happening on Thanksgiving weekend. Starting off on Saturday – Small Business Saturday, not coincidentally – you can browse ceramics and other handmade gifts at the Orlando Pottery Festival & Holiday Arts Market, starting at 9 a.m. at the Florida National Guard Armory (also at noon on Sunday). Follow that up with a hop over to Mills Avenue to check out the Center’s LGBT+ Holiday Pop-Up, starting at 11 a.m.. At noon, the Milk District hosts a Small Business Saturday version of their Milk Mart market, taking place both in the shops of the Milk District and on the sidewalks and parking lots of the neighborhood. After all of that, head over to Audubon Park for their annual Small Business Saturday Sip & Stroll, where you can browse the racks at district businesses while enjoying adult beverage samples at each stop. On Sunday, Dandelion Communitea Café hosts its annual Sparkle Market, which skews a little crunchier than most markets, with crystals and ocarinas among the highlighted gift options. At noon, you can head downtown to get some fresh produce, dairy or specialty foods at the Daily City’s Downtown Orlando Indoor Farmers Market, held inside Celine. It’s not necessarily billed as holiday shopping, but wouldn’t you rather receive a jar of locally made pickles than another scented candle? Wrap up the weekend at the Will’s A Faire Vintage & Indie Art Market, held at Will’s Pub at 2 p.m. Not only can you browse the wares of 80 vendors, but you can do so with a drink in your hand and live music playing in the background. Go ahead; you’ve earned it. – Thaddeus McCollum multiple times | Florida National Guard Armory, 2809 S. Ferncreek Ave.; The Center, 946 N. Mills Ave.; The Milk District, East Robinson Street and North Bumby Avenue; Audubon Park, Corrine Drive and Winter Park Road; Dandelion Communitea Café, 618 N. Thornton Ave.; Celine, 22 S.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live FILM

Get your popcorn – and hankies – ready. The mad geniuses behind the seminal Mystery Science Theater 3000 have taken their show on the road and are bringing it to Orlando, and it’s going to be the curtain call for one of the most important members of their cast. The MST3K Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour will be original host and series creator Joel Hodgson’s final tour as part of this ensemble, bringing an end to an amazing, subversive performance run. The MST3K crew came to fame and built a huge cult audience with a fresh spin on the “horror host” concept: Why wait until commercial breaks to crack wise on the films, when you can do it during the films? Now YouTube is full of their spiritual children doing “watch-alongs” and reaction videos. For this night, though, Hodgson and his faithful ’bots will be cackling over and roasting Circus of Horrors, a 1960 British film about a plastic surgeon who joins the circus, but can’t kick his addiction to operating on deformed women. Sadly, it looks like we will never get to hear “Hike Your Pants Up” – from the comedy goldmine Daddy-O episode – live. But still. – MM 8 p.m. | Hard Rock Live, 6050 Universal Blvd. | 407-351-5483 | hardrock.com | $33-$63

Thankskilling For such an integral part of the American holiday experience, Thanksgiving doesn’t really get a lot of representation in cinema. One notable exception is the 2008 comedy-horror film Thankskilling, in which a talking turkey rises from the grave to exact revenge on the descendants of white settlers. Vault 5421 pairs the notoriously ridiculous nobudget film with a drinking game – because you have to get through it somehow, we guess. 7 p.m. Wednesday; Vault 5421, 5421 International Drive; free; godmonsters.com.

Number of the Feast What started out as just a really good pun has turned into a Thanksgiving tradition at Will’s Pub’s Dirty Laundry. Head over after family gorging time for drink specials – including $3 pumpkin pie pudding shots – and listen to classic metal with all your favorite leftovers. 9 p.m. Thursday; Dirty Laundry, 1042 N. Mills Ave.; free; willspub.org.

Miracle on Orange Kicking off directly after Thanksgiving, Miracle on Orange once again transforms downtown’s the Courtesy Bar into a kitschy winter wonderland, full of vintage decorations and special libations. Try returning cocktails the Bad Santa or the Christmapolitan, or go-ho-ho nuts with the SanTaRex, which combines rye, baked apple bitters, sherry, hard cider and more into a ceramic Tyrannosaurus Rex mug. You know, for Christmas. 5 p.m. Friday, through Dec. 24; The Courtesy Bar, 114 Orange Ave.; various menu prices; thecourtesybar.com.

Crux at Remix Nomadic post-punk dance night Crux makes its way to Mills 50’s Remix Record Shop at the end of Small Business Saturday. Dark grooves provided by DJ Smilin’ Dan, Matthe[w]matic, Audromeda and Melancholy Firecracker. Beer and wine provided by the shop. 8 p.m. Saturday; Remix Record Shop, 1213 N.

B Y DA N S AVAG E

I’m a heterosexual cis woman in a monogamous marriage. My husband and I have always struggled to connect sexually, mostly because he has extreme anxiety that makes doing anything new or different difficult. He’s been in therapy since before I met him, but it doesn’t seem to be helping much. His anxiety has caused him to shut down every sexual ask I’ve ever made because he’s afraid he won’t “do it right.” He’s a PIV-andnothing-more kind of guy, but I’m not asking for varsity-level stuff, just boring things like talking about fantasies, a little role-play, staying in bed on a Sunday just to have sex, etc. All of it is off the table. I understand he has a right to veto sex acts, but isn’t this all pretty basic, run-of-the-mill stuff? He’ll still get his PIV; I just want there to be other elements before the PIV starts. It’s still a no. Talking to him about this sends him into a depressive episode where I then have to spend hours telling him he’s not a bad person, so I’ve stopped bringing it up. I’ve tried to talk to therapists about navigating this issue, but most change the subject. One actually told me that it was good that we don’t have good sex, because if we did, we wouldn’t have good communication in other areas. (I never went back to that one.) This has gone on for so long that I’ve lost all interest in sex. My libido, which used to be very high, has vanished. Whenever he wants sex, I do it – but I dread it. Do you have any ideas on how I can navigate this topic with my husband so he doesn’t shut down? How can I make him understand that it’s okay to experiment sexually and it will be OK if it’s not perfect? Lost And So Sad You’re going to have to call your husband’s bluff, LASS, and power through the predictable meltdown. That means raising – again – your unhappiness with your sex life, explaining your need for some pre-PIV intimacy and play, informing him this is no longer a desperate request but a non-negotiable demand, and then refusing to shift into caregiver mode when his depressive episode starts. I’m not suggesting your husband’s anxiety and depression are an act, LASS, or that being made aware of your unhappiness isn’t a trigger. But if depressive episodes get your husband out of conversations he’d rather avoid – and if they allow him to dictate the terms of your sex life and treat your pussy like a Fleshlight – then his subconscious could be weaponizing those depressive episodes. And if you shift to caregiver mode every single time – so long as you’re willing to spend hours reassuring him that he’s not a bad person – then your grievances will never be addressed, much less resolved. So even if it means spending an extremely unpleasant evening, weekend or few weeks with him, you’re going to have to raise the issue and

refuse to reassure your husband. Line up whatever support you think he might need before you make your stand – you could also make your stand during a couples counseling session – and give him maybe one “You’re not a bad person, really!” and then refuse to back down. And when he shuts down, LASS, it will be his therapist’s job to pry him back open, not yours. And the sex you’re currently having? The sex you dread and don’t enjoy? The sooner you stop having it, LASS, the sooner your husband will come to understand that he’s going to have to give a little (so very little!) if he wants to have sex at all. If and when he does, then you can borrow a page from the varsity-level kinkster handbook: Take baby steps. In the same way people who are turned on by, say, more intense bondage scenes (suspension, immobilization, etc.) start with lighter bondage scenes (hands behind the back, spread-eagled on the bed, etc.), you can start with something small and easy for him to get right, like 20 minutes of cuddling in bed together on a Sunday morning before progressing to PIV sex. I’m a bisexual trans woman living in Europe. A couple of months ago, I began an amazing relationship with a woman who works as an escort. For a while, everything was as good as it gets, until I said something inconsiderate about her job and she took offense. We were having a conversation about “what we were” (girlfriends? lovers? partners?) and any rules we’d like the other to observe, and I said I’d rather not see her after she’d been with a client, I’d rather wait until the next day. She took this as me thinking her job was “dirty,” which was absolutely not my intention. I explained that I’d spent 10 years in open relationships and it was just a habit I was used to. (If you sleep with someone else, go home, take a shower, sleep off the emotions, see you tomorrow.) She said that her clients were not lovers, it’s completely different, and it would make seeing her complicated, as we work different hours. I immediately realized how she was right and said so. She was aloof for a few days afterward, and she eventually told me that she didn’t feel like she could be with someone who understood so little about her job. I pleaded with her to give me a second chance and told her that I’d never even met a sex worker before, so there was a learning curve for me, and she agreed that we could carry on seeing each other. But she remained distant, canceling plans and not replying, until she eventually told me that she was just too scared of getting hurt, because it’s happened so many times before. I was absolutely shattered. I spent the next few days drinking in bed and licking my wounds. I was falling in love with this woman, and I ruined it with my big mouth. After a couple of days,

“BLUFF CALLS”

I started going about my life again. And soon enough, she started texting me, asking me how my day was, casual stuff, and it’s just really painful. I don’t know how to reply to her. If she has changed her mind, then I’ll date her again in a heartbeat, given how freaking amazing she is. But if she’s just (kind of inconsiderately) making conversation, then I can see myself getting my heart broken all over again. I’m torn between asking her to stop texting me and carrying on with the casual texting to see if anything comes of it. Any advice? Tearful Escort’s Ex Getting Really Lonely If you two couldn’t handle a simple misunderstanding, TEEGRL, how are you going to resolve a serious conflict? Or forgive a profound betrayal? You know, the kind of shit people in LTRs do? Actually, I’m being unfair: You seem perfectly capable of handling this misunderstanding, TEEGRL, it was your ex-whatevershe-was (girlfriend? lover? partner?) who wasn’t able to handle it. But in fairness to her – I need to be fair to everybody – sex workers are often shamed by romantic partners who pretended, at the outset of the relationship, to be fine with their jobs. Your comment about not wanting to see her after she was with a client could reasonably be interpreted as whorephobic. But your explanation – it was a rule in all your past open relationships – was reasonable, and your ex-whatever-shewas, if she were a reasonable person, should have been able to see that. And perhaps she is reasonable, TEEGRL. Maybe she started texting you about casual stuff because she feels bad about pulling away and sees now that she overreacted. To determine whether that’s the case – and to determine whether she’s still open to dating you – you’ll have to risk asking the dreaded direct question: “Hey, it’s great to hear from you! I’d love to pick up where we left off, if you’re still interested. Are you? Please let me know!” On the Lovecast, shy lady doms rise up!
