Fidel Castro dies, new Florida House speaker picks fight with teacher’s union, Pulse angel wings get a new home and other things you may have missed this week. »
Fidel Castro, Cuba’s communist dictator, dies at 90; South Florida rejoices: Exiled Cubans brought their pots and pans out onto the streets of Miami last weekend as news spread that after almost five decades of authoritarian rule over the island nation, Castro was dead at 90, about eight years after handing over the presidency to his brother Raúl Castro. The Miami Herald’s epic obituary put it best: “Few national leaders have inspired such intense loyalty – or such a wrenching feeling of betrayal. Few fired the hearts of the world’s restless youth as Castro did when he was young, and few seemed so irrelevant as Castro when he was old – the last Communist, railing on the empty, decrepit street corner that Cuba became under his rule.”
Richard Corcoran calls teachers union lawsuit “downright evil”: The new Florida House speaker started his tenure by eviscerating the Florida Education Association for suing to stop the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program, which grants tax credits to businesses that pay for kids to attend private schools. The teachers union argues the program takes away money from public schools and is unconstitutional. Last week, Corcoran said Democrats should join Republicans to condemn the lawsuit: “The teachers union is fixated on halting innovation and competition in education,” Corcoran said. “They are literally trying to destroy the lives of 100,000 children. Most of them are minorities, and all of them are poor. ... It is downright evil.”
Pulse angel wings find sanctuary at the Center:
Bill Nelson wants investigation into Florida’s use of driver’s license records:
The angel wings constructed of PVC pipe and white fabric that have made recurring appearances in Orlando since the Pulse massacre will get a new home this week. The Orlando Shakespeare Theater will relocate them to the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida. The wings were originally constructed to protect mourners attending the funeral of one of the 49 victims in downtown Orlando from anti-gay protesters.
U.S. Sen. Nelson is asking U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch for a federal probe into Florida’s DHSMV after a news outlet reported that the state agency sells driver records in bulk to 75 companies without making sure how the information will be used, a possible violation of federal law. email@example.com 6

People who met Akyra Monet Murray knew she was going somewhere. The 18-year-old honors student had recently graduated from West Catholic Preparatory High School third in her class, according to a statement from her school. The Philadelphia teenager known by the nickname “Kira” was also a star athlete who scored 1,000 points while she played on the Lady Burrs basketball team wearing the No. 20 jersey. Recently, she had also signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Mercyhurst College on a full scholarship. “Akyra was a respectful and selfdetermined young woman who served as a natural leader to her teammates and all that observed her from afar,” said Beulah Osueke, who coached Murray on the basketball team, in a statement. “What she displayed in academic and athletic excellence, she also displayed with her shining personality.”
With all the promise in the world and a long list of accomplishments, Murray and her family came to celebrate in Orlando a week after her graduation. In the early morning hours of June 12, Murray was having a good time with her cousin Tiara Parker and their friend Patience Carter at the gay nightclub Pulse. When the shooting began, Murray and Carter made it out of the club, but went back in to find Parker. Carter and Parker survived the shooting, but Murray did not, making her the youngest victim of the mass shooting that claimed 48 other people. “Losing Akyra is heartbreaking,” Osueke said. “We are currently in the process of healing as a community. This is a very difficult day, not just for the Murray family but for the West Catholic family and all that were touched by Akyra’s warmth and magnetic embrace.” Aside from all her achievements, Murray was also a kind person who provided support to her friends, especially her cousin Tiara Parker. On Facebook, Parker says she considered her baby cousin a younger sister. “My baby is gone,” Parker writes. “I miss her so much, but I know it’s no more suffering. No more pain. She is at peace. … Anybody that knows me knows I had my cousin with me almost all the time. I miss her so much.” – Monivette Cordeiro

Incoming representative Carlos Guillermo Smith brings a progressive agenda to the Florida House BY MON IVETTE COR D EI R O
ike a typical suit-and-tie lawmaker, Carlos Guillermo Smith is comfortable discussing the nuances of public policy and debating the details of legislation on the floor of the Florida House. But what sets House District 49’s newest representative apart is how easily a bullhorn slips into his hand as he leads chants in a protest against Donald Trump, discrimination or efforts to stymie the minimum wage, all while wearing slim jeans and a fashionable blazer. And he’s also not afraid to be the lone voice of disagreement among friends. When President Barack Obama came to campaign for Hillary Clinton in Orlando, Smith joined with a small group to protest the Trans-Pacific Partnership and then later went on to introduce the president to a crowd of thousands. “I’m going to find a way to leverage my unapologetic grass-roots identity with this new role,” he says. “If I have to motivate people to get involved by grabbing a bullhorn or knocking on doors, I’ll do that.” A longtime progressive activist, the 35-year-old Democrat is the first openly queer Latinx to serve in the Florida Legislature. Politics isn’t the first path he imagined his life taking. After being raised by a Canadian mother and Peruvian father in Boca Raton, he moved to Orlando and graduated with a business degree from the University of Central Florida in 2003. Smith went on to work in Men’s Wearhouse stores in Florida and Georgia for eight years (and, interestingly enough, once participated in the game show Fear Factor, where he was forced to wear a helmet full of eels). But Smith says he felt turned off by the world of retail after company executives focused more on profits and less on people. His life changed in 2008. President Barack Obama’s historic win as the country’s first African-American president pushed Smith into the political fray, first as an activist and then slowly up the rungs of power. He worked as a legislative aide for former state Reps. Scott Randolph and Joe Saunders in the Florida House and was elected chairman of the Orange
County Democratic Party in 2013. More recently, he worked as the governmental affairs manager for Equality Florida, the state’s largest advocacy group for the LGBTQ community. District 49 was up for the taking by Smith after incumbent Rene Plasencia announced he would run for election in District 50, which was safer for the Republican. The election of Donald Trump has been a tough pill to swallow for many Democrats in Florida, especially Bernie Sanders supporters like Smith who voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in hopes they could push for progressive policies under her presidency. Still, under a President Trump, Smith hopes to collaborate with his fellow legislators when he can and push for progress, such as by fully funding the Bright Futures scholarship, decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, safeguarding women’s reproductive rights, fighting structural racism and income inequality, raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour and expanding anti-discrimination workplace protections to include LGBTQ people. “A lot of people are definitely disappointed in the election results,” Smith says, “but here’s the thing: This is our democracy. We don’t have to accept the bigotry, homophobia, xenophobia and misogyny that seem to be core components of Trump’s campaign. We need to become a true opposition party.” But Smith has been known to find common ground with the opposing party, at least to blunt attacks. Congressmanelect Darren Soto, who also won his race in November for Florida’s Ninth Congressional District, says in this last session he watched his friend collaborate with Republicans (who held the majority) to soften the blow of the “Pastor Protection Act,” which legally protects churches from having to officiate samesex marriages. “He’s fighting with everything he has to continue to make this state a more equal place to live,” Soto says. “Sometimes it takes a fight to try to get something done, and sometimes it takes a compromise.” Anna Eskamani and her twin sister, Ida, met Smith while they were in the orga-
PHO TO B Y
nization College Democrats at UCF. Anna, who currently serves as the spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, says Smith has always been an authentic person known for working through the night and into the early morning. He’ll answer a text at 2 a.m. and has an ear for everybody, from constituents to incoming freshmen at UCF, she says. “I’ve never seen a legislator with such a profound progressive agenda,” she says. “After Trump’s election, there’s a lot of uncertainties and a lot to navigate. We can’t just push back against legislation. We also have to ensure fellow Democrats who call themselves progressive are also held to that line. I feel confident knowing Carlos will be there to hold them accountable.” The true test of Smith’s character came after the mass shooting on June 12 at the gay nightclub Pulse that claimed the lives of 49 people and injured more than 50 others. Like the rest of Central Florida, Smith was grieving the massacre, but he found power in his pain, Eskamani says. National media outlets were slow to point out that most of the victims, aside from being part of the LGBTQ community, were also Latinos and lived in a unique intersection. Smith joined other local Latino leaders to give a voice to Spanish-speaking victims’ families and help survivors of the massacre who had a difficult time navigating services catered to English-speaking people. Rasha Mubarak, a local activist who works with the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, says Smith was the first person to call her the day of the massacre to offer his support and solidarity. After it was revealed the gunman was Muslim, local Muslims feared they would be targeted. “Carlos told me, ‘Rasha, we’re not going to let this divide us and we’re going to send a message to the world,’” she says. “That night we stood together at the Dr. Phillips Center and read the names of the victims together. He’s always demonstrated a commitment to combating any phobia, and we saw that put to the test in the wake of a mass shooting.” Ida Eskamani, who worked with Smith at Equality Florida, says Smith’s election ensures the Latinx community has a seat at the table in Tallahassee for the first time. “There’s a key difference between visibility and representation,” she says. “Carlos is working to lift up the voices of victims’
families and survivors. With us being District 49 and there being 49 victims, there’s a lot of symbolism that’s powerful for him. It’s something he keeps close to his heart.” After he was sworn in last week, Smith placed his rainbow ribbon pin next to the YES and NO buttons he will use to vote in this upcoming session. After everything that’s happened, the small ribbon many people in Orlando took to wearing after the tragedy is a way to keep himself grounded and remember the 49. He took some extra ribbons with him to pass out to Democratic and Republican legislators who aren’t from Central Florida. In regards to Pulse, he wants to work on several pieces of gun reform legislation (such as expanding background checks for gun purchases and banning assault weapons in Florida), increase funding for mental health services, and make sure victims’ families and survivors continue to have the resources they need. “I thought I knew what priorities I would have as a legislator before June 12, but it changed everything in so many of our lives,” he says. “This is a community that needs help to pick up the pieces. Wearing the ribbon keeps me focused on the values of life, love and equality for all.” firstname.lastname@example.org

There are those who say that life
is an illusion, and reality but a figment of the imagination. From Plato’s cave to Dr. Strange, academic philosophy and pop culture alike have proposed that the material world is merely a thin veil, which only those possessing great spiritual power can pierce. Of course, sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, and today the right combination of computer hardware and/or psychoactive chemicals can serve as a Fastpass to an alternate plane of existence. But what is the price for harnessing our senses and manipulating our minds, and can we afford to pay it? Last week I had two experiences that addressed that question from completely different angles, but ultimately arrived at the same ambiguous answers. After the recent IAAPA Expo, I opined that the attractions industry’s recent embrace of virtual reality appears premature, based on the multiple meh VR systems I sampled on the show floor. But days after the convention, I was invited to Pointe Orlando on International Drive, where Zero Latency is making the best argument I’ve experienced so far for VR’s potential. The new Main Event Entertainment center, located beneath the complex’s IMAX theater, looks a lot like IAAPA itself, with all the latest arcade games surrounded by high-tech bowling lanes and an overhead ropes course. However, it’s the V Play Reality facility – the first built by Australia-based Zero Latency in the United States – that sets Main Event apart from Orlando’s many family entertainment centers. I’ll admit up front that Zero Latency doesn’t eliminate all the issues I have with virtual reality, and even exacerbates a few of them. For starters, the headsets are far heavier than other models, and adjusting the focus forced the lens uncomfortably against my eyeball, though once
If seeing the world through different eyes is the ultimate aim of virtual reality, good theater is still the most advanced VR available. dialed in they deliver an immersively wide field of view. The visuals are driven by an Alienware mini-computer worn in a bulky backpack; add in the Rambo-sized rifle and my muscles were aching after a couple of 15-minute matches. My first Zero Latency game, a zombie defense shooter with constricted movement and no narrative, did little to distinguish itself above similar violent distractions. It wasn’t until I experienced Engineerium, a physics-defying family-friendly exploration game, that I truly became a believer in VR’s power to deliver a convincing alternate reality. Packs of players can see and speak to each other as they wander through a colorful Aztec-inspired sky temple, navigating floating pathways that bend and warp like a Möbius strip woven by M.C. Escher. Despite never leaving a few thousand square feet of warehouse floor, my senses insisted I was standing sideways on the side of a stone wall, a thousand miles above the ground. If Zero Latency creates additional impossible adventures and improves the ergonomics, I’ll happily pay the approximately $2 per minute they’re charging to take another trip.
Speaking of trips, the Villages is
rarely referenced in these pages unless conservative voters or venereal diseases are involved, but a newly opened theater inspired me take the hour-plus road trip
to the massive senior development. The Studio Theatre at Tierra del Sol has taken over an underutilized restaurant and remade it into a state-of-the-art black box theater, with 99 cushioned seats surrounding a three-quarter thrust stage. The facility, which features unobstructed sightlines and LED light fixtures, reminded me of Theatre Downtown, if that muchmissed venue had a bigger budget. The new company, which is an outgrowth of the nearby Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center, is led by artistic director Whitney Morse, star of the theater’s debut musical, Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey’s award-winning Next to Normal. Diana (Morse), mentally ill wife to longsuffering husband Dan (Brian Zealand) and mother to neglected daughter Natalie (Emily Chelsea), doesn’t need 3-D goggles to interact with imaginary avatars like her absent son, Gabe (Tyler Beauregard). And the increasingly invasive cures Dr. Madden (Brett Ricci) prescribes can’t reconcile the conflicting realities each of the family members inhabit. I didn’t fall in love with a recent local production of Next to Normal, but under Orlando director Aradhana Tiwari, this harmonious ensemble (backed by musical director Gary Powell’s warm onstage orchestra) makes the most of the catchy folk-rock score. Morse manages to maintain our empathy for Diana despite the depths of her biochemical descent, even if she (like Zealand) looks too youthful for the role. Most importantly, Tiwari directs her cast with clean, charactermotivated choreography that clarifies the story’s emotional issues, which are sure to prompt discussions during the long drive home. Because if seeing the world through different eyes is the ultimate aim of virtual reality, good theater is still the most advanced VR available. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

HOT SPRINGS From Amorette’s to Yesake, all the best tastes Disney Springs has to offer this holiday season BY JESSICA BRYCE YOUNG
t sorta crept up on us, because we aren’t big theme park-goers nor habitual mallrats, but … Disney’s renovation of the area formerly known as Downtown Disney is kind of rad. We’ve nibbled at the edges of the Disney Springs development here and there over the past year – a restaurant review here, a snarky Best of Orlando writer’s pick there – but now, forced to contemplate the Disney Springs gestalt by the arrival of out-of-town visitors and the, ahem, Holiday Shopping Season, we have to admit that a visit to the Springs is a day well-spent. That is, if you place eating and drinking well near the top in your definition of a good day. email@example.com
Amorette’s Patisserie Town Center Technically, this dessert shop should be your last stop, but on this list we are (kind of) slaves to the alphabet. A glass of Iron Horse champagne and a spot of crumbly, airy pavlova topped with raspberry pâte de fruit and Chantilly cream is the perfect button to a day spent shopping till you’re dropping.
AMC 24 Dine-In Theater West Side Abandon the hard-core bag ladies to their retail therapy and take in a flick at Disney
Springs’ 24-screen AMC theater, where you can eat an entire meal in your seat. I mean, don’t (you are not coordinated enough to deal with a bacon-and-ranch burger in the dark) but the option of crispy Brussels sprouts instead of plain old popcorn is intriguing.
B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. Marketplace This kiosk offers more than a bite on the run; the Portuguese sausage sandwich with pickled vegetable slaw is worth a dedicated trip.
The Daily Poutine Marketplace Another kiosk whose offerings punch way above its weight, the Daily Poutine serves international takes on the Canadian speciality. We like the “French” one (fries drowned in mushroom cream sauce and topped with Gruyère) plus a nice dry Unibroue Blanche de Chambly to wash it down.
Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC (formerly Babycakes) The Landing Got vegans? Make them happy. Cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts etc., all animal- and gluten-free. McKenna serves one of the most legit vegan brownies in the country, TBH.
Blaze Fast-Fired Pizza Town Center This is decidedly a step above a mall food-court slice and a Sprite: a quick-fired individual Red Vine pie (fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, Parmesan, basil, red sauce and an olive-oil drizzle) and a blood-orange lemonade.
D-Luxe Burger Town Center The El Diablo burger, with a chorizo-blend patty scattered with fried banana peppers and slathered with chipotle mayonnaise, is enough fuel to power you through hours of the this-one-or-that-one game: lipstick colors at MAC, floaty dresses at Anthropologie, crazy-cheap cashmere at Uniqlo, or whatever other Disney Springs store where you find yourself playing arbiter of taste.
The Landing First things first: You’re going to need a high tolerance for theming and artificiality in this bar “based on” the “legend” of “Indiana Jones’ pilot” – but you’re at Disney, so clearly you’ve got that covered. That said, Jock Lindsey’s is one of the few places in the Springs to get a not-super-sweet alcoholic drink, and the bar food is above average to boot. We like the pretzel flight, but they’ve got a couple of holiday specials on right now, a rösti (yum) and a flatbread that’s basically Thanksgiving on a crust: turkey, cranberryonion jam, butternut squash, greens, chèvre, and candied pecans with a splash of sage oil. Remember, turkey goes great with rye.
Morimoto Street Kitchen The Landing We’ve left out a lot of great restaurants that require reservations here – like Homecoming Kitchen, STK, Raglan Road and more – in order to focus on snacks you can grab on the go. Like Frontera Cocina, Morimoto Asia is one of those, but has a takeout window where you can taste an abbreviated version of the main menu. In the case of Morimoto Street Kitchen, there are actually a few street-snack-friendly items found only on the smaller menu. You can try Morimoto’s uber-popular sticky ribs out here, sure, or you can enjoy the takoyaki (fried octopus fritters) available only to the outdoorsy.
BACON GUAC | PHOTO BY ROB BARTLETT
Frontera Cocina Town Center If you can score a seat at the bar, down a margarita or three and a bowl of guacamole: they offer bacon, “green” or “atomic” variations. Wanna give your cardiologist job security? The queso fundido – Jack cheese melted with roasted poblanos and caramelized onions – is heaven in a tiny cast-iron pan. In a rush or no room inside? Visit the takeout window and snarf up a short-rib orlandoweekly.com
Town Center If you’re on the move and trying to keep it that way, you can of course make a withdrawal from the vaunted cupcake ATM. But we prefer a trip inside for a Cap’n Crunch ice cream sandwich squished between two salted oatmeal cornflake cookies. Right?
Yesake West Side The food’s OK, but it’s the sake slushes that win our heart. Yesake’s citrus tea slush combines sake and bourbon with black tea, honey, lemonade and orange juice. So, gets the holiday spirit moving and cures a cold? We’ll take two!

1 S. Orange Ave., 407-801-5198 The former Whitewood Grill still serves Middle Eastern fare, with a few more hippie twists (natural sodas, some organic produce).

Colonial Drive, 407-896-8966, chuanlugardenorlando.com At the best Sichuan restaurant in the city, it’s not so easy to find a cheap lunch off the regular (read: authentic) menu, though we very much enjoy the chili and sour potato with shredded pork ($8.95). But if you dig that retro Chinese-resto mid-day special, this dish makes it onto their lunch menu as well, sticking out among the moo goo gai pan and beef with broccoli … but sure, you can scoop up a smaller portion along with soup, a spring roll and fried rice for $7.95.
The Flame Broiler 54 W. Church St., 407-601-2257, flamebroiler141.com Basic nutrition, great for clean eaters: grilled beef or chicken; steamed veg mix (cabbage, carrots, broccoli); brown or white rice. We go for the half-and-half, skip the carrots, and try not to add too much “magic sauce” (basically a sweet Korean barbecue sauce) so as not to destroy the healthy.

But then, in an astonishing sequence, Moana experiences a soaring vision of the past of her people as daring explorers who crossed vast oceans, who were brave and intrepid, not confined by comfort and timidity. Moana isn’t a misfit: She embodies a bold and restless spirit of her people that has been denied for too long. This is wonderful. A girl. A “mere” girl. The very incarnation of her culture. Amazing. It is impossible to overstate how much girls – and women – need to hear this. The adventure that Moana embarks upon requires her to find the trickster demigod Maui, who long ago stole the heart of the mother of the earth, which caused some bad things to happen and darkness to spread. The heart needs to be put back, and only Maui can do that with his magic. When she finds him, she discovers an arrogant jerk (with the voice of Dwayne Johnson) with no desire to help humanity, certainly not after how ungrateful we all are for everything he did for us (roped in the sun, set the tides rolling, etc.). She must convince him that it is in the best interests of his reputation MOANA | PHOTO COURTESY OF WALT DISNEY – with which he is inordinately concerned – to help her. The incomparable Disney way of combining goofiness with profundity reaches hugely entertaining new levels here: Maui’s animated tattoos, which act as his conscience, are characters in their own right.

ORLANDOWEEKLY.COM Kill Command
BY ST EVE SCHNEID ER Deadlines are dangerous things, especially if you harbor a stupid insistence on meeting them. For instance, you might be a movie columnist in Orlando, Florida, who decides to tell the world how fed up you are with seeing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s name all over the place. You might put that thoroughly legitimate observation into your weekly copy, then hand in said copy right on time before settling in for a well-deserved late-afternoon nap. Then, a mere handful of hours later, you might watch in horror as a thoroughly unexpected dust-up erupts between the cast of Hamilton and the incoming Trump administration – putting you squarely on the wrong side of the latest battle in the culture wars. Lucky you! You get to spend the next four days waiting for your entire readership to tar and feather you for throwing in your lot with Mike Pence. But hey – you made that deadline, right? Thank God Halle Berry’s Kidnap got pulled from this week’s release slate. Because I really don’t want to be back here next week trying to find something good to say about her after she takes on Betsy DeVos over school choice. Halle, over to you. OPENING THIS WEEK Incarnate Nobody says the word “incarnate”
like Eric Bloom introducing “Godzilla” on Blue Öyster Cult’s Extraterrestrial Live. So the only thing that might save this horror cheapie is if your RPX ticket included the option of in-ear narration from Bloom throughout. (“Those nachos at the concession stand are Burnin’ for You!”) Otherwise, what we’ve got here is a very unpromising possession story in which
Aaron Eckhart – hey, remember when he was somebody? – plays a psychically gifted exorcist who crawls into the mind of a young boy, only to find out that the evil spirit who is bedeviling the kid is a familiar adversary indeed. (Pazuzu, is that you-zu?) The Hollywood Reporter referred to the film as a “microbudget” project, which is fun to say because it’s so close to “micropenis.” Of course, that was three years ago, when Incarnate was announced as the first installment in a hoped-for franchise; since then, the movie has been sitting on a shelf, awaiting release in the U.S.A. – although it did get a theatrical run a year ago in Belgium. You remember Belgium: Matt Dillon’s Citizen Dick were huge there. Even bigger than BÖC! (PG-13) ALSO PLAYING Kill Command Here’s one that arrived like a
thief in the night: a British-made sci-fi thriller about a bunch of U.S. Marines whose training mission on a remote island unexpectedly makes them the prey of a bunch of government-sanctioned killer robots. U.K. reviewers praised first-time director Steven Gomez’s use of a tiny budget (and not, it should be noted, a micropenis) to effect a convincing and compelling homage to the early days of James Cameron. The Guardian was even moved to employ the distinctly Yank-like plaudits “cool” and “a blast.” So of course the movie got dumped stateside in a very limited release with almost nonexistent promotion, at the same time the industry was pushing the latest failures by Warren Beatty and Billy Bob Thornton. Because America hadn’t done enough this month to show the rest of the world that we can’t have nice things. (NR) orlandoweekly.com

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● NOV. 30-DEC. 6, 2016
t seems like only insiders truly know the quality, variety and depth of the Orlando music scene. And that’s a shame because the city’s spectrum has exploded in a million different and genuinely interesting directions over the last decade, resulting in an exponentially more colorful culture than ever before. There are more homegrown artists worth talking about than we could physically include, but this is a list of acts that are making the moves, defining the sound or are just plain exceptional right now. Across punk, soul, rap, rock & roll, metal, electronic, experimental, folk, classical and pop, these are the current faces of Orlando music.
This Brazilian rapper first started blowing through the Orlando underground a few years ago like a chill tropical breeze. Very early on, it was clear that his is a voice that’s original, colorful and utterly new. Not long after he caught our ears, venerated hip-hop hero Talib Kweli went all in on the kid and signed him to his label, Javotti Media. Ever since, Niko has gone from the local grind to traveling the world and lighting up stages with Kweli. He even appeared on Kweli’s 2015 album collaboration with 9th Wonder, Indie 500. Even so, when Niko’s home, he can still be seen springing up on local stages in his own pop-up shows or making surprise cameos like the one he did with young soul singer Circa over the summer at Will’s Pub. – BLH
Since forming in 2011, this throwback soul act has diligently built a solid name for itself. Then, last year, they underwent a drastic overhaul that even involved the replacement of an iconic singer. Somehow, the band emerged like a phoenix, with a new singer (knock-down belter Brenda Radney) and a new attitude. It’s a major-league reboot that’s resulted in a leaner but definitely meaner band with real grease and grit. They’re almost done recording their first full-length album – all analog, of course – with rising scene star Simon Palombi (of the Woolly Bushmen). And they’ve just signed on with Limited Fanfare (the credentialed Miami record label that’s released artists like the Ettes, Lil Daggers, Heavy Drag, Denney & the Jets and MonstrO) for management and Rollo Grady Music (who’ve done high-profile TV and product placements for legit acts like Natural Child, Pujol and Futurebirds) in L.A. for licensing. Launch sequence initiated. – BLH
Loop guru Tiger Fawn (née Dani Lacerda) has become a force to be reckoned with in the nebulous realms between pop and experimental music. Hers is a sound that shares sonic space with shoegaze, electronic and the weirder end of the FM radio dial. Though the project was once a band, Tiger Fawn and Lacerda are now one and the same – art melding with artist, emphasis on Art. Tiger Fawn created a “digital forest” for a concert that was livestreamed only, has collaborated with R&B iconoclast Fiona, and is finishing an “intergalactic” concept album called The Adventures of Space Tom. The focus of the year for Tiger Fawn, both artistically and personally, has been on growth and evolution. As for most of us, her year has been one full of challenges: “I spent the last year taking hits and slowly building a cocoon of numbing self-preservation. I was riding the wave of inertia Tiger Fawn had built, but couldn’t do any more than just hold on.” Lacerda cryptically promises that the best/weirdest is yet to come: “If you were already bespelled by the little creature known as Tiger Fawn, I can assure you what comes out of the chrysalis will be nothing short of ‘What the fuck?’” – MM PHOTO BY MATTHEW WELLER

For almost every metal connoisseur in the area, stoner-sludge band Junior Bruce is high on the list. Even if a big national breakout has mysteriously eluded them so far, their bloodthirsty sound and searing live shows have earned them perennial status as one of Florida’s nastiest products. Since their 2012 debut LP (The Headless King), the band has soldiered on through a gutting series of personal tragedies. Now, the Southern diablos have finally returned with a full-length follow-up. Released on Halloween (naturally) and streamed exclusively on Metal Injection, the long-awaited and thrillingly noxious Endless Descent is the official document of a mighty band back up to speed and on the warpath again. – BLH

Chandler Strang is one of the city’s most creatively restless and productive music figures right now. The fact that he sired and juggles at least three projects – indiepop band Saskatchewan, indie-rock band Case Work and electronic act Dromes – is noteworthy enough. But the fact that all of them stand tall as paragons of Orlando music is testament to the quality and variety of his talent. His next focus will be the back-to-the-’80s neon dream of his first baby, Saskatchewan. In addition to the fresh material he’s currently working on for the next album, the band will soon re-emerge with completely new blood, the latest addition being ace drummer Tyson Bodiford (Summerbirds in the Cellar, Acoqui, et al.). – BLH
Discordant grind abusers Ad Nauseum are the hardest-working band in the local DIY metal/noise scene, constantly booking and playing shows with similarly bloodthirsty underground dwellers (from Hijokaidan to Yautja), maintaining multiple side projects, as well as releasing an ever-flowing stream of music, including: a recent cassette on Broken Limbs Recordings, a new album set to be released before the end of the year and an album’s worth of songs written and ready to record. The band, however, clarifies, “Our music is meant to be experienced live, rather than on a recording.” In many ways, Ad Nauseum’s creative arc is building toward a peak at the end of this year with the Florida Is Loud festival, a weekend packed full of Floridian (and affiliated) metal/ punk/noise/grind that members of the band are helping to organize. It’s a powerful lesson: Unsatisfied with your chosen subgenre’s scene? Make your own. – MM
Orlando party-starter and personality Harry Hillard Morall III has been keeping the landscape spiced and interesting for a few years by bridging the party and indie scenes under various guises and names (Mr. 3, Black Liz Lemon, etc.). All that has now culminated in Fiona, his latest fully conceived project. It’s a current, multidimensional convergence of rap, R&B and funk that, live, is a full-band affair that includes some of the sturdiest players in the city’s indie scene. But what makes the whole thing fly is Morall’s largerthan-life charisma. Add it all up and it’s a big, shiny ball of style, levity and sex. Fiona’s debut full-length, GOLDBABY, just dropped this month and glimpses of it have already been making the blog rounds. – BLH PHOTO BY LIV JONSE

LANEY JONES & THE SPIRITS
Between professional music licensing work in Nashville and touring and writing for her budding band, Mount Dora’s pride Laney Jones has made the official jump to being a full-time working musician. Now, with the spring release of her latest self-titled album, she’s made a powerful, more prismatic pivot that thrusts her out of the folk niche. Showing aptitude for pop, soul and indie, it’s the document of a naturally gifted artist who’s only now beginning to really speak up. And because it positions her for practically anything she wants to chase next, Laney Jones’ trajectory will be one to watch. – BLH

This year, Howling Midnight has leapt from seemingly total obscurity to emerge as perhaps the most promising and sonically complete two-piece band in the area. Their burly, hard-driving blues-rock has a thrillingly raw economy that’s the hallmark of all guitar-and-drum duos, but possesses a full live kick that few others have. They went from being an outlier to entering the cabal of the city’s most prominent rock duos alongside acts like Copper Bones and Yogurt Smoothness, giving Orlando’s two-piece scene a needed shot in the arm. Howling Midnight are currently in the process of recording some new songs and hoping to release an EP early next year. But since they’re now popping up regularly on notable bills with some of the area’s best rock bands, they’ll be easier to notice. And notice you should. – BLH
As the verbal force in the double-barrel dream team of E-Turn & SPS, she exploded onto the Orlando hip-hop scene several years ago as one of the 407’s most fire-breathing and original MCs. Now, sister’s doing it for herself. In solo mode, she’s ready to fully summon all the exponential powers of her loaded identity as a Middle Eastern woman in hip-hop. Consider how all those layers align with everything happening in the world today and it’s clear that now is the time for a perspective like hers. Especially when it rides this much thunder. Though E-Turn’s solo debut recording with local hip-hop godfather Swamburger isn’t due out until spring, the Persian rapper has already secured a distribution deal with Fake Four, the respected and forwardthinking alt-rap label that’s been home to exemplars like Ceschi, Astronautalis, Busdriver, Sadistik, Bleubird and Sole. Things are aligning for E-Turn and 2017 could be a breakout year. – BLH 26

The true genius of Angus Young from AC/DC is that he looks like a soused wreck stumbling around and drooling in a schoolboy uniform, guitar by all appearances unplugged, yet in reality he’s the disciplined guiding force of the band. It takes twice as much energy to appear this drunk and disorganized when in reality you’re on target every. Single. Night. It’s a lesson the Golden Pelicans have undoubtedly internalized. Every Pelicans show seems like it’s going to collapse into chaos, and underneath the stagger and swagger is total focus. They’re pushing it hard: touring, releasing new music, hosting fellow musical malcontents from all over. And they’re getting attention far outside the confines of Orange County. Next up: a live 7-inch of their wildman punk roar released on Jack White’s tastemaking Third Man label. They’ve wrapped their third LP, which should be out next spring, followed by another tour. – MM
With enough online hype and presence to move the national needle, Sales are currently the most buzzing indie band to come out of Orlando. But that status was always conditional. For a long time, their skeletal stage presentation was just a wan rendition of the intimate magic of their music. That’s unfortunate for a band with such lovely songs, doubly so for one that has bet on building its name on the road in the way Sales has. For as much as you wanted to root for the hometown heroes, they just weren’t ready. But that all changed with the recent and crucial addition of a live drummer. At a packed show at the Social in October, they finally became the band they should and need to be. And, now, Sales are suddenly looking equal to their bright future, which includes a recently signed publishing deal with indie powerhouse Sub Pop. – BLH
This enterprising young man is one of the most important and involved movers of culture in the city; there is probably no greater champion of Orlando’s contemporary classical scene. As an impresario, he founded and directs the sui generis Accidental Music Festival. As an administrator, he’s now the executive director of the essential Timucua Arts Foundation. As a player, he performs guitar in Belt & Ramirez and Ensemble AMF. And as an educator, he currently teaches “Works With Sounds,” a free music composition course at the Orlando Public Library’s Melrose Center that he founded through Timucua. But perhaps most definitive, Belt is the leading figure in keeping our classical music scene from being just a relic of a centuries-old European canon. His indefatigable advocacy of contemporary composers keeps the pulse here thoroughly modern, something that, really, only enlightened cities do. – BLH
Pop-punk is big in these parts, and it doesn’t get more traditional or victorious than Panther Camp. All credentialed veterans of the scene, these guys know what works, what doesn’t and what’s just wankery, and they crank out the anthems accordingly with big rock & roll octane. Over the summer, Panther Camp released their first mini-album (The Hated, the Loved, the Willing and the Wicked) and it’s a straight rocket built for the open road. They’ll be taking a break soon to write their next batch of material, but you can see them play on Dec. 7 at Will’s Pub, their last local show until the spring of 2017. – BLH

Standing defiantly as one of the best death-rock bands in Florida – and pretty much the only (goth) game in town locally – Autarx are a thing of feral, deathly glory. They channel early American gothic groups like 45 Grave and Christian Death while keeping pace with lords of the new goth-punk church like Arctic Flowers, Bellicose Minds and Belgrado. Live shows are utterly unhinged, with pure punk abandon and dark-side dramatics acting in perfect harmony; a lush and razor-sharp tangle of jagged guitar and synth, rumbling percussion and the Siouxsie-esque presence of their vocalist, Sarah Patricia. Autarx has shared various stages with Pawns, Gino and the Goons, and the Sh-Booms, inspiring fans beyond the usual black-clad legions and making them a unique musical force in our city. – MM 28

The Pauses are one of the most established names in Orlando’s indie-rock scene. Tierney Tough and Jason Kupfer, the band’s creative core, have been individually busy – the latter with his film work and the former with touring in national acts like Matt Pond and War on Women. But together as the Pauses, unfortunately, they’ve been living up to their name with a collective output that’s been on hold for years. However, they’ve recently rededicated themselves and just completed a new Pauses album. Like their previous LP, 2011’s excellent A Cautionary Tale (released by leading Florida indie label New Granada), this still-untitled work was produced by indie royalty J. Robbins. Though the mixed and mastered record is currently being shopped around and won’t see release until 2017, the band has started to play the new material in concert, making now a prime time to check back in on the Pauses. – BLH
Two members of venerable local hiphop collective Solillaquists of Sound step out on their own in the smoldering triphop-meets-torch-song duo Chakra Khan. It’s serendipitous that Chakra Khan came into being this year, releasing Love Is at the Core and providing healing and soulful future music for difficult times. Atop a bed of swaying and shuffling, slurred beats and washes of ambient synth provided by Divinci, vocalist Alexandra Love lets fly with a gorgeous, commanding voice that exhorts you to heal, to love, to transcend … to the point where you believe it’s still possible, no matter how dark the world seems. – MM
Incandescent products of the edgy Mills Avenue scene, this twin-fronted band have become the undisputed leading ladies of Orlando punk over the handful of years of their existence, and they’ve done it the old-fashioned way. Their joyously carefree collision of garage, punk and pop started out good and has consistently gotten more chiseled from frequent tours on the national circuit. Now their résumé boasts releases on national and international labels, regular appearances on bills next to vanguard bands of the punk and garage underground, and even a feature on Noisey. Their latest release is a recent 7-inch split single with Brooklyn punks the Meltaways that features a great ’90s look for Wet Nurse (“Belly Hurts”). – BLH PHOTO BY LIV JONSE

The postpunk duo of Andrea Knight and Jason Kimmins is one of the more surprising additions to Orlando’s live scene. Knight is already known in underground circles for her no-wave noise project Bacon Grease, but Shania Pain (THAT name!) is very much its own entity. Though both say all existing recordings and shows to date have been based around improv jams, this is no joyless noodling. Knight (guitar, electronics) and Kimmins (vocals, loops) immediately stumbled upon a reverb-heavy haunting, droning sound that calls to mind Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire and early synth-punk leading lights, and they are hypnotic live. They play regular, though often last-minute, shows on all manner of bills – and you will not be disappointed, though perhaps confounded. – MM
Few classical artists in the metro are as active or progressive as this young UCF music professor. The avant-minded percussionist-composer is a go-to performer for the city’s most leading-edge events, like the Accidental Music Festival and the In-Between Series at the Gallery at Avalon Island, which launched with an Anderson drum-corps performance. This year, he unveiled Northbound, a fascinating real-time urban soundtrack mapped and inspired by a full-length trip on SunRail that we named “Best City Soundtrack” in our 2016 Best of Orlando issue. In 2017, he plans to release two albums: the aforementioned Northbound (spring) and Lines: The Music of Thad Anderson (fall), a collection of solo and chamber works from his Lines series. – BLH
This crushing Orlando monolith has been inactive of late but they’re in our mix here because their sound is as now as any heavy band in the city, especially since groups like Deafheaven have drawn a significant popular spotlight toward and expanded the conversation around heavy metal. A forward convergence of black metal rush, technical brutality and epic post-metal sweep, their gorgeously overwhelming music is the very essence of metal, yet something clearly more. And live, it’s astonishing in its assault and beauty. Dzoavits tells us there have been talks lately between members and increasing eagerness to wake the beast. One word: please. – BLH
THE WOOLLY BUSHMEN
Though these stylish lads are young, they know their history. And they’ve tapped some of its marrow to become the best pure rock & roll act in the city with wild, heat-seeking stage shows that have become the stuff of new legend. Of all the acts here, they have maybe the most recorded work on the horizon. First, they just finished recording a new album – produced by Southern Culture on the Skids’ Rick Miller – that they’ll be shopping around. Then, in early 2017, they plan to release an EP on Hidden Volume Records, the Baltimore label run by Scott Sugiuchi from Orlando garage gods the Hate Bombs. Also early next year, they’ll be playing Field Trip South (Feb. 24-25, Will’s Pub), a festival that will pair the cream of the area garage-rock crop with stars like the Woggles, Subsonics and a reunited Hate Bombs. Afterward, the Bushmen embark on a monthlong, first-ever European tour. – BLH firstname.lastname@example.org 32

Illuminated Paths Showcase MUSIC
Thursday, Dec. 1
Christmas in the Park
Local cassette label Illuminated Paths straddles two separate aesthetic sensibilities: No. 1, a highfalutin “art for art’s sake” approach to the selection of artists to release, regardless of commercial possibilities or genre restrictions; No. 2, a good ol’ American work ethic, with multiple new titles being released weekly and otherwise unheard music disseminated far and wide. Vaporwave, noise, ambient, hip-hop and outsider folk are all on the IP release list. On Friday night, the usually nebulous online IP collective will manifest at Uncle Lou’s for a show that will be nothing less than a deeply weird human mixtape. Headlining is our very own freak-folk maestro and oddball legend Ray Brazen, along with the ADD pop-culture blender electro of Polykarp, Byson’s shimmering, downtempo sample-soundscapes, and the dark synth torch songs of Tampa’s Fjshwjfe. – Matthew Moyer
Those who have visited the Morse Museum of American Art before will recall the beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows on display. On the first Thursday of each December, however, the exhibit travels outside the museum as nine of these windows are installed in Central Park. They serve as the backdrop to a Christmas concert that includes the Bach Festival Choir, Youth Choir and Brass Ensemble. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, food and drinks while they enjoy the show. But be warned, this event has been known to get crowded. If you’d like a good spot, get there early. – Martina Smith 6:15 p.m. | Central Park, 251 S. Park Ave., Winter Park | 407-645-5311 | morsemuseum.org | free

Spooky Empire EVENTS
OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK
Hurricane Matthew may have done a number on your roof, but it’s nothing compared to the chaos it wreaked on Spooky Empire. The annual horror convention had the bad luck to be scheduled for the very weekend that Matthew hit the area, and ended up having to cancel with barely any notice. Many attendees from out of town were stuck in their non-refundable hotel rooms, deprived of their planned photo ops, zombie walks and parties. It was a big blow to Spooky, which is a labor of love run by a small cabal of horror fans who lack the deep pockets of, say, Informa, the multinational corporation that owns MegaCon. Luckily, most of the biggest names for the canceled October con are returning for this make-up date, including the Stranger Things kids and wrestling legend Ric Flair. Plus, they’ve managed to add a few luminaries like the one and only Cassandra Peterson, aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. If Spooky Empire took place in any other town, Hurricane Matthew might have sounded its death knell, but here in Orlando, where Halloween is practically a year-round event, this rescheduling should be just a minor inconvenience. – Thaddeus McCollum 2 p.m. Friday, noon Saturday-Sunday | Orange County Convention Center, West Concourse, 9800 International Drive | 954-258-7852 | spookyempire.com | $35-$75

With more VH1 Surreal Life cast members than they’d probably like to admit, the I Love the ’90s Tour is rolling up to Orlando, Hammer pants in hand. Salt N Pepa, Coolio, Young MC and others are riding on a wave of nostalgia, playing their hits from decades past to an audience in desperate need of being thrown back. The ’90s were a simpler time, and not just musically. The Clintons were still kind of liked, a loved one could walk you to the gate of your flight (with their shoes on the whole time!) and if you mentioned Donald Trump outside of New York City, you were likely to get more raised eyebrows than curled fists. “Gangsta’s Paradise,” “Let’s Talk About Sex” and “Bust a Move” are setlist mainstays, but if you’re enough of a fan, you might recognize some deeper cuts you can wild out over. Do break out your neon windbreaker and any kind of FUBU gear you might have buried deep in your closet (in a box presumably labeled “do not open”) and turn out for this very literal flashback. – Adam Manno
Hmm. Is it a nifty new pharmaceutical? Some kind of magic mushroom? Nope. Ciclovia is mood-altering in a better way – in the way that only comes from moving and breathing outside in the sunshine. Stretch your muscles and your mind with free yoga, Zumba, skating and a soccer play zone sponsored by Orlando City Soccer Club, plus a bike polo exhibition, a live art wall sponsored by the Walls of Pho Hoa muralists, live music and free advice from local bike shops including Kyle’s, Retro City and Orange Cycle. After all that active play, you may want to grab something from one of the food trucks and hang out in the beer garden – it’s OK, you’ve earned it. – Jessica Bryce Young

Stanley Clarke MUSIC
PHOTO BY STEVEN PARKE
Stanley Clarke, bass player extraordinaire, has an incredible legacy, having played with everyone from the Stones to Stewart Copeland, and Pharoah Sanders to Carlos Santana, and let’s not forget the legendary Return to Forever. If there’s a movie or TV show you like, chances are he scored it: Boyz N the Hood, Pee Wee’s Playhouse and The Transporter, to name a few. Folks like Victor Wooten and Esperanza Spalding hail him as an important influence, not to mention the countless metalheads who cite him and Return to Forever as being at the roots of modern progressive metal. In the current age of cookie-cutter music, Stanley Clarke stands head and shoulders above much of what is churned out onto the market and reminds us of a time when music was ruled by the musicians and not the business. – Kyle Eagle

ILLUSTRATION BY PATRICK O'CONNOR HOLIDAY
If you can’t beat 'em, get really drunk and beat someone else in this festive Yuletide event. Krampusnacht takes place every year on the evening of Dec. 5 when a horrifying half-goat, half-demon visits the homes of naughty children, beats them with a switch and takes them away to his lair as punishment for their bad behavior. (It started as a German thing, don’t worry about it.) The celebration expanded over time to include a Krampuslauf, in which celebrants dress as Krampus and get liquored up, and the Hammered Lamb is taking advantage of the excuse to party with horns on this year for Orlando’s Krampusnacht. We’re not one to shy away from themed shindigs, but parts of this story aren’t adding up to us. For example, Krampus is clearly unfamiliar with B.F. Skinner’s work in behavioral psychology, which states that aversive events like punishment only work to decrease undesirable behavior, not to increase positive behavior. We told you not to drop that Psych 101 class, Krampus. You didn’t even finish your first semester! You just HAD to drop out when the guys in your Sigma Pi rush wouldn’t stop making fun of your terrifying facial features and now you’re stuck working at Best Buy and you only get out once a year around the holidays. Good luck dealing with the poorly behaved children you bring home, Krampus, because nothing’s more terrifying than a home full of misled youths and a clueless single father. – Abby Stassen 8 p.m. | The Hammered Lamb, 1235 N.

Uncomfortable Brunch Presents: Straw Dogs FILM
This installation of beloved local film series Uncomfortable Brunch was originally scheduled for July, but in the wake of Pulse, the organizers opted to hold a fundraiser event for victims featuring Boys Don’t Cry instead. Little did they know that we’d be in a post-election scenario in which Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 treatise on violence, masculinity and fragile male egos would be so poignant. The film follows an American professor, David (Dustin Hoffman), who rents a cottage in his English wife’s native Cornwall. Unfortunately, his wife’s ex-boyfriend and his goony pals view David as a weak egghead, undeserving of the beautiful wife he’s, in their view, purloined from their clutches. As things get further and further out of hand, the film executes scenes of escalating violence that hit the audience like a literal punch to the gut. There are a lot of things going on in the subtext of the film, which has resulted in it being derided almost as often as it’s praised. Many view its depiction of the wife as inherently misogynist, though censor boards unwittingly contributed to that analysis by cutting crucial moments out of a certain scene. And the debate over whether it condemns or glorifies violence will probably go on for as long as it’s able to find an audience. But in a time where some of us are feeling a little bit like vicious uneducated rednecks are literally out to get us, Straw Dogs hits even closer to home than usual. Just FYI: Amazon does, in fact, sell bear traps. You’ll understand later. – Thaddeus McCollum noon | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | uncomfortablebrunch.com | $10-$12

Are you looking for a new furry friend? Meet Derby!
Derby (A364587) is a 5-year-old dog who is looking for a home. This boy is a gentle giant! He walks well on a leash, and he is housebroken. Derby is a pretty mellow dog and he is very sweet. He knows a few basic commands, and can learn even more if you train him by giving him treats! He does have heartworm disease, but it is treatable. If you are looking for an adorable, friendly dog, come meet Derby. The standard adoption fee for dogs is $55, but keep your eyes out for a few special adoption promotions in December! Derby’s adoption fee has been waived due to his heartworm disease. 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.
My boyfriend of almost two years is wonderful, and we have had very few issues. But there is one thing that has almost been a deal-breaker. He fiddles with his penis almost constantly – in front of me and in front of our roommates. I’ve confronted him about it a number of times. He said he should be able to fiddle with his dick in every room of the house if he wants to and he should feel comfortable doing so. I told him that he is being “comfortable” at the expense of the comfort of those around him. We’ve had a number of confrontations about this, and he does it a lot less, but he still does it. If he doesn’t stop when I tell him to, I just leave the room. My question to you: Is this behavior unacceptable or am I being unreasonable? Frustrated With The Fiddling Until a few weeks ago, I would have said that neo-Nazis sieg-heiling around Washington, D.C., was unacceptable and any elected official or pundit who didn’t immediately condemn neo-Nazis would be finished politically and professionally. But it turns out that neo-Nazism is just another example of IOIYAR – “it’s OK if you’re a Republican” – and relativism reigns. In other words: “Unacceptable” is a relative concept, FWTF, not an objective one. That said, FWTF, I don’t think you’re being unreasonable: Fiddling with your dick in every room of the house is inconsiderate and childish. It sounds like you’re doing a good job of socializing your boyfriend – better late than never – and I would encourage you to keep it up. I’m a straight man in a mostly healthy marriage. Our sex life is average, which I understand is better than some people can hope for, and we communicate well. For example, I felt comfortable admitting to my wife a few weeks ago that I would like more blowjobs. She in turn felt comfortable admitting to me that she would prefer if I showered more often. So we made a deal: I would shower every day and she would blow me twice a month. But the first month came and went with no blowjobs in sight. I’ve showered every single day. Should I bring this up to her? Bathe Longer Or Withhold Sex Your wife doesn’t wanna suck your cock, BLOWS, squeaky clean or stinky cheese. I would recommend outsourcing non-birthday blowjobs – if your wife is OK with that, BLOWS, which she won’t be. I’m a mid-30s bi woman in an incredible poly marriage with a bi guy. A few months ago, I learned that one of my closest friends (also poly) has a crush on me. I also have always had a crush on him. My crushfriend needed to ask his other partners
how they felt about him being involved with me. Three months have gone by, and he’s not yet told me how his other partners feel. One of those partners is under a lot of stress – not the best time to bring up potential new partners to her – but my friend has dated other people in the past three months. I think if he really wanted to do something with me, he would have asked by now. I know you can’t ask someone to give you closure. I’ve also got a shit-ton of pride that prevents me from asking him directly how he feels. Should I just move on? Confused And Pathetic Yup. I am a queer trans woman in my mid20s, and I am in a monogamous relationship with a queer cis woman. We have been dating for about three months now. We have had an absolutely amazing sex life since day one, except for one caveat: She has never in her life had an orgasm. For most of the time she has been sexually active, she has felt ambivalent about getting off. It has only been in the past month that she has started feeling a “sexual awakening,” as she calls it. We have been making progress, but she has been having issues with getting caught up in her head when I am pleasuring her. This has been causing dysphoric feelings for her. We have had a few discussions about what we can do about the situation, but we are feeling lost. We know there isn’t going to be a quick fix, but what do we do about this? Confused And Nervous Truly Can’t Overcome Much Exasperation Pot. I’ve been in a long-term relationship with the girl I’m going to marry. While I’ve had a few relationships in the past, she has had only one other relationship before me, who also happened to be her only other sexual companion. My girlfriend is very vanilla in the bedroom, which is fine for me, but the issue is that currently the only way for her to have an orgasm is to grind (dry hump) on my boxer shorts until she climaxes. This obviously causes her a little bit of embarrassment, along with some heavy rug burn on both of our ends. My question for you: Is there any toy or something that may help with this? Girlfriend Dryly Humping
exercises during sex (and hold it), which I will not do because it’s not pleasurable for me to tense up like that during sex. He doesn’t have the biggest or the smallest dick I have ever had, and I have never had this comment before. I have actually been told many times how “good and tight” I feel. We both enjoy anal, so we tried that. Same request: “Squeeze.” I have no abnormalities. I’m not sure if there is a workaround for this, other than doing Kegels every minute of my life. Help! Sex Partner’s Annoying Requests You have two options: You can tell your current sex partner you aren’t going to “squeeze” his dick with your pussy or your ass, as the sensation isn’t pleasurable for you, or can you lie to him. Tell him you’re squeezing your pussy/ass – you’re squeezing so hard – without actually squeezing your pussy/ass. Odds are good he’ll notice a difference even if you’re not doing anything differently, SPAR, so great is the power of suggestion. I had to write after reading your recent Savage Love Letter of the Day from a woman who spotted a friend’s husband on Tinder and didn’t know whether she should say something to her friend. My (single and Tindering) friend has been mistaken for his identical (married and non-Tindering) twin brother more than once on the app. They live in Seattle and Los Angeles, and most people in their lives don’t realize they have a twin. My friend has freaked out his sister-in-law’s friends by popping up on their Tinder feed. It came out after the sister-in-law posted a photo of the twins together on social media and multiple people expressed extreme relief that her husband was not a cheater but an identical twin! Deluded Acquaintances Needed Answers Thanks for sharing, DANA!

Pot and sex toys – they might not help, but they couldn’t hurt. I’m a woman with a small build who has never had children. During sex, my current partner frequently says, “Squeeze your pussy,” as in he expects me to do Kegel orlandoweekly.com
