IN MEMORIAM: THE ORLANDO 49 Every week between now and the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, Orlando Weekly will profile a person killed on June 12, 2016. This week: Luis Daniel Conde

Luis Daniel Conde worked to make people in his community feel beautiful. The 39-year-old originally from San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, ran Alta Peluquería D’Magazine Salon with his partner, Juan Pablo Rivera Velazquez, in Kissimmee. They transformed people with makeup, hairstyles and fashion tips into who they wanted to be, says Wanda Ferrer, a friend and client of the salon.

“They were tremendous people,” she says. “Very helpful and friendly. They were very cute and treated their customers like family. They always had a smile for their customers.” Ferrer says Conde and his partner loved to go the club on the weekend. It’s where they were during the early morning hours of June 12. Ferrer says Conde invited her to come party at the gay nightclub Pulse that night, along with Rivera Velazquez, Luis Daniel Wilson-León and Jean Carlos Méndez Pérez. All four died in the mass shooting that left 45 others dead as well. His friends Albert and Iris Rivas Diaz wrote on Facebook that they would always remember his pure and sincere smile. “You are someone who will stay tattooed in our hearts and will never be erased until the day we meet again,” the couple says. “I’m sure that you are in a better place than us next to your Juan P., who you always cared for and protected. My heart has not been able to recover from this great loss … I love you and always be with me wherever you are.” On Facebook, Conde’s sister Lynette Conde posted photos of her brother with his family, calling him her mother’s “favorite prince.” “I remember you in each and every instant,” she writes. “How can I not miss that smile? It’s hard not having you here.” – Monivette Cordeiro

POLITICS AS UNUSUAL The world – and the GOP – after Trump: No matter what happens, the roots of Trumpism will remain entrenched in the Republican Party base BY JE FFREY C. BILL M A N





The “grab ’em by the pussy” tape. The waves of Republican condemnation (and, less often, outright rejection). The midnight quasi-apology. The dictatorial threat to jail his political opponent. The misdirection, parading before cameras women who alleged that his opponent’s husband did what he’d admitted doing on tape. The dozen or so women (and counting) who’ve come forward to say that, yes, he’s done exactly what he bragged about doing. The lashing out, threatening to sue the New York Times and People. Saying his 68-year-old rival’s backside wasn’t impressive. Accusing his accusers of lying, of being too unattractive to grope, of being in league with his rival’s campaign, which in turn was in league with a Mexican businessman and the international banking cabal (cough Jews cough). Then there’s the would-be demagogue’s dangerous insinuation that if he loses, that means the election was rigged. His followers are listening. One told the Boston Globe, “If she’s in office, I hope we can start a coup. She should be in prison or shot.” Another said he was going to become a poll-watcher to keep an eye on “Mexicans” and “Syrians”: “I’m going to make them a little bit nervous.”

Think about how insane this is: open roots of Trumpism will persist, entrenched talk (to a reporter!) of a coup and voter into the base of the Republican Party. The intimidation, egged on by a man who stench of losing will be strong; there will wants to be president of the United States. be rounds of deserved “I told you so” It suffices to say that American politics recriminations from the GOP’s savvier has never seen a 10-day stretch quite like elites and intellectuals, the ones who saw this – a “total meltdown,” as the Time Trump as the threat he was and refused to magazine cover put it.

you’d hope that those who put country and principle ahead of party – e.g., John Kasich – would rise from the ashes to become the GOP’s new vanguards. But maybe not. After all, even after Trump is gone, the roots of Trumpism will remain embedded in the Republican Party. He didn’t win the primary by accident. He won because he tapped into an undercurrent of the ugliest elements of the American body politic: economic anxiety and discomfort with changing social mores, sure, but also racism, misogyny, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, authoritarianism, fear of the other. As the saying goes, when you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression. And there’s no denying that many of Trump’s followers feel oppressed watching the country become more multicultural, multiethnic, urban and libertine. That’s what they mean when they say they want their country back. Trump’s enraged base comprises a little less than half of the Republican Party, enough to make it a viable force going forward. More concerning, Trump still has a favorable rating of about 35 percent – people who approve of him, not just those who hate Hillary so much that they’re willing to put up with him. That’s tens of millions of people – deplorables, if you will – who shrug at or even applaud race-baiting and conspiracy-mongering. That’s not a good sign for our democracy. I can’t help but wonder whether a more politically sophisticated demagogue without Trump’s baggage and diarrhea of the mouth (or of the tweet) would have prevailed, or whether the 2020 Republican primary will be a race to repudiate Trump or to galvanize his followers. I suspect a little of both – and I’m not sure who will win.

Stand by your man With their similarly checkered pasts (sex scandals, financial defeats), Apopka Pentecostal preacher Paula White and presidential nominee Donald Trump are a match made in alt-right heaven MA R K I . PI NSKY


Middle School on Chickasaw Trail and Oak Ridge High, and partly in suburban Maryland. While she has no college or seminary degrees, what she does have is a natural gift for energetic Pentecostal preaching and a convincing mastery of African-American idioms. “Slap somebody upside their weave,” she says. Or: “Can you help a sister out?” White can preach with a tough-talking, wise-cracking Joan Rivers sensibility, but she’s not averse to employing Greek theological terms. Her preaching can shift from the rational to the supernatural in a nanosecond; she uses “caint” and “cannot,” “yo” and “you,” and “git” and “get” interchangeably. The wealthy white televangelist is one of the most unlikely stars in the modern evangelical firmament. What could she possibly have in common with the working- and middle-class African-Americans who have made her opulent lifestyle possible? White declined several interview requests for this article. But she tells her story in her sermons and her books. Her mother was an alcoholic and her father committed suicide. Living for a time in a trailer, she was the victim of childhood physical and sexual abuse. As a teen, she says, she was promiscuous, became a single mother and, as a young adult, was bulimic. Years later, she was addicted to prescription medication; her teenage son was addicted to crack, and an adult stepdaughter died of brain cancer. If, through the love and power of Christ, White tells her followers, she has been able to break through these “generational curses,” so can they. Now, after years of scandal surrounding her and her ministry, White has placed herself in Donald Trump’s constellation, acting as the nominee’s “spiritual coun-

he Pentecostal preacher is on fire: A diminutive blonde in thigh-high boots with 4-inch stiletto heels, she transfixes her suburban Apopka congregation. Stalking the stage, she conveys mastery and authority one moment, vulnerability the next. She galvanizes the predominantly AfricanAmerican worshipers at her megachurch, New Destiny Christian Center. And she isn’t shy about breaking down her version of the here-and-now Prosperity Gospel. “I don’t want pie in the sky by and by,” she says. “I want some ham where I am.” On a typical Sunday morning service at New Destiny – the first of two – worship has begun as it always does, with colored lights flashing against the walls and the cavernous ceiling, to the pounding beat of Christian rock. Worshippers are soon on their feet, arms in the air. A boommounted TV camera swoops down across the pews, as Paula White keeps time to the music, clapping with the heels of her hands. “Pastor Paula,” as she often refers to herself, is wearing a black dress, and she is cooking. “This is a season of overflow,” she says, “a season of increase.” What she expects of the worshipers in the pews is “the first tenth of your gross income,” because “every time we give, something supernatural happens.” With her hand-held mic, she strides back and forth on the stage, seeming to feed off the growing fervor her preaching generates. She refers to her personal life as an example of what Jesus can do. With the Lord’s help, she went “from a pit to a palace” – and she says those in the congregation can do so too. White was born to middle-class parents in Tupelo, Mississippi, and raised by a two-star Navy admiral stepfather – partly in Orlando, where she attended Liberty

selor” – in the words of Politico magazine, his “God whisperer.” Trump told Time magazine that “Paula is a person of great faith and accomplishment. … She has been a tremendous friend and I am grateful for her guidance and support.” In many ways, White is also Trump’s religious doppelganger; the relationship is an obvious fit, given Trump’s own gravitation to the outward appearance of success and optimism. Thrice married – most recently to the geezer rock group Journey’s Jonathan Cain – White’s fame is fueled by regular appearances on religious television and best-selling inspirational books. She’s rich, but also dogged by financial controversies, accumulating a small fortune in cash and properties through various now-bankrupt ministries. Her Apopka congregation now numbers about 10,000, down from her erstwhile multisite megachurch of 28,000 in Tampa. At the end of a second summer Sunday service, this one on the eve of the Republican National Convention, White apologizes for not being able to greet her flock. Cryptically, she tells them she has a plane to catch, without giving a destination. The flight is to Cleveland for the RNC. On Monday, convention officials announce that White will offer that evening’s closing prayer, making her only the second woman in the GOP’s history to have that honor. White’s prayer was not explicitly political or ideological, apart from calling on God to “make America safe again,” echoing one of Trump’s themes. Despite the increasingly long odds against Donald Trump becoming the next President, if he does, Paula White, a Pentecostal preacher with an insanely checkered history, who speaks in tongues and believes in faith healing, stands to become Trump’s Billy Graham, a person murmuring God’s will into his ear. So who is she today, and how did she get so close to the nation’s highest circle of power?

Although many evangelical leaders have lined up on one side or another, some see Trump as the third rail of Christian politics, with no upside in taking a position.


o far, Paula White is determined to stand by her man, despite the recent cascade of charges of sexual harassment against Trump. And she is not alone. A study by the Public Religion Research Institute, released Oct. 11, found that 65 percent of white evangelicals continue to support Trump, although there

has been some recent erosion among women. A Pew Center survey released in July found that three-fourths of white evangelical Protestants who attend church weekly were leaning toward Trump, a greater margin than those who supported Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee. This demographic is crucial to any waning chance Trump has of capturing the White House. But many tell pollsters that they’re not exactly enamored with Trump; rather, they just really hate Clinton. Or maybe there’s something else, perhaps something more worldly, at play: “I continue to be disappointed that evangelicals hitch themselves to Trump’s wagon,” says evangelical author and motivational speaker Rusty Wright. “I wonder if it’s power they are after.” Richard Cizik, former executive vice president of the National Association of Evangelicals, agrees. “Evangelicals who for 50 years have said ‘character matters,’ now are saying by their endorsement of Trump, ‘never mind.’” Indeed, a number of younger, more centrist evangelical leaders are not supporting the Republican nominee, in part because of his truculent statements on immigrants and immigration policy, which have offended Hispanic and African-American evangelicals. A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll found that Latino voters back Clinton over Trump by a 76-14 margin, and the same poll found that 82 percent of Latino voters have a negative view of Trump. A survey released Oct. 14 by LifeWay Resources, a respected Christian polling group, reported that “African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian-Americans with evangelical beliefs support Clinton (62 percent) over Trump (15 percent).” Well before the release of the infamous Access Hollywood recording, the Rev. Gabriel Salguero, a pastor at Orlando’s Iglesia El Calvario and president of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, joined 74 of the organization’s leaders in denouncing Trump’s “xenophobic and misogynistic rhetoric.” In particular, Trump’s disparaging comments about immigrants and Hispanics generally were doubly offensive to Salguero. While Salguero, like other Hispanic evangelicals, disagrees with some of Clinton’s views on social issues like abortion and has not endorsed her or any candidates, he says, “I cannot in good conscience endorse Trump.” Last Sunday, vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine spoke in Spanish to the Pneuma Church in West Kendall in South Florida, urging Hispanic evangelicals to vote. National polls also indicate that Trump has the support of less than 1 percent of CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

African-American voters. So the paradox is that, however much White may be able to influence white evangelicals across the country to back Trump, it is highly unlikely that many of her African-American and Hispanic parishioners at New Destiny will follow her. Although many evangelical pastors and leaders have lined up on one side or another, some see Trump as the third rail of Christian politics, with no upside in taking a position. “Years ago, in my doctoral work, I spent a year working in an ‘insane asylum,’ as we called them back then,” says the Rev. Joel Hunter, of Northland, a Church Distributed, in Longwood. “I learned then not to try to make sense of completely crazy. Never has that lesson been as valuable as in this year’s election.” According to the same PRRI study, white mainline Christians are split 42-42 between Trump and Clinton. There is some irony to this divide, given that Trump was raised as a Presbyterian, a mainline denomination, and attended Marble Collegiate Church, a traditional Manhattan congregation, where at least one of his weddings took place. Various church leaders, from Trump’s denomination and others, have criticized him. An April letter from a group of highprofile North American Christian leaders declared that Trump’s campaign statements were “contrary to our Christian values” and “racist, bigoted and hateful.” Clergy of color, most recently an African-American pastor in Flint, Michigan, have also spoken out against him. After the Access Hollywood tapes came out, Ralph Reed, head of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, said that for “people of faith,” the recording “ranks low on their hierarchy of concerns,” to which popular evangelical leader Beth Moore responded via Twitter, “Try to absorb how acceptable the disesteem and objectifying of women has been when some Christian leaders don’t think it’s that big a deal.” Speaking for many female evangelicals, she continued: “I’m one among many women sexually abused, misused, stared down, heckled, talked naughty to. Like we liked it. We didn’t. We’re tired of it.” On a plane flight last February, Pope Francis, referring to Trump’s plan to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants and to build a wall on the Mexican border, said, “A person who thinks only about building walls – wherever they may be – and not building bridges, is not Christian.” In most of these cases, Trump has not hesitated to fire back. “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful,” Trump replied. “I am proud to be a Christian. … No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith.” 16

“Paula represents everything that is wrong with American religion: no accountability, the jet-set lifestyle, divorces and affairs that seem to never end.”


hortly after being saved at the age of 18, Paula Furr left her first husband and ran off with Randy White, her Maryland church’s pastor, who was at the time married with three young children – a fact she does not include in her redemption testimony. The couple moved to Tampa and, after doing some youth work with a local church, set out to establish their own congregation from scratch, which succeeded spectacularly. At the height of their popularity, Paula and Randy White reported generating $40 million a year from her broadcast ministry and their Without Walls International Church in Tampa. The racially diverse congregation, in two locations, claimed a membership of 28,000, with the co-pastors taking together between $600,000 and $1.5 million a year in compensation. White says she owes her national speaking career to T.D. Jakes, the influential African-American pastor of the 30,000-member Potter’s House Church in Dallas, who plucked her out of a post-revival receiving line. Jakes, who White refers to as her “spiritual daddy,” has for years featured her at his national arena women’s conferences, which draw predominantly African-American audiences. “There’s no question he made her,” says a longtime observer of Jakes. White returned the favor, in part, with the gift of a $200,000 Bentley convertible on Jakes’ 50th birthday. White has lived exceedingly well, thanks in large part to donations from her TV viewers. For a time, she lived in a $2.2 million waterfront Tampa Bay home, driving one of her several Mercedes and, when in New York, staying either at her Trump Park Avenue condo or her Trump Tower digs. But the Whites’ ministry hit tough times in the mid-2000s, a direct result of a series of hard-hitting investigative stories by the Tampa Tribune. Soon, the Whites and their ministries were the subjects of an IRS investigation in 2004 and a U.S. Senate probe in 2007, led by Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley. NBC Nightly News and CNN devoted segments to the ministry’s woes. The church’s Gulfstream jet had to be sold. In 2009, ●

Paula and Randy divorced, and Paula left the Tampa pulpit, devoting all of her time to broadcasting, although her ratings and outlets declined sharply. Things got even worse for Paula. A sensational tabloid exposé on the cover of the National Enquirer linked Paula White with fellow (and separated but still married) televangelist Benny Hinn in a romantic tryst in a five-star Rome hotel. Hinn, another prosperity gospel proponent, was registered in the presidential suite under the biblically suggestive name “David Solomon.” White denied the affair, but Hinn later acknowledged an “inappropriate relationship.” In the wake of the accumulated notoriety, attendance at Without Walls in Tampa also plummeted. A satellite church in Lakeland, Florida, with a 10,000-seat sanctuary, was shuttered and abandoned in 2012. The Tampa church filed for bankruptcy in 2014. Around this time, White has told audiences, she suffered a stroke, which led to a renewed addiction to prescription drugs. “Paula represents everything that is wrong with American religion,” says Ole Anthony, founder of the Dallas-based Trinity Foundation, a religious watchdog organization. “No accountability, the jetset lifestyle, divorces and affairs that seem to never end. She’s left a trail of destroyed churches behind her.” F. Scott Fitzgerald notwithstanding, there do appear to be second acts in American religion. Despite White’s checkered career, in early 2012 her appeal was enough for New Destiny Christian Center, outside Orlando, to pass over five AfricanAmerican preachers to call her to their pulpit. New Destiny is no stranger to scandal. Before he was saved and reformed, founding pastor Zachery Tims, by his own account, was a drug dealer and gang member from Baltimore who was once charged with attempted murder. Tims became a rising star in the Pentecostal world by building New Destiny into a 9,000-member megachurch in the mid-1990s through the early 2000s. But in 2010, Tims began a downward spiral. He confessed to an affair with a Vietnamese woman he met in a Paris strip club and was later accused of other infidelities closer to home. Down came the idyllic billboards of Tims and his co-pastor wife, Riva, along I-4, inviting drivers to join the growing congregation. Zachery divorced Riva and forced her out of the church, which began a precipitous decline in membership and support. Then, in August 2011, the minister was discovered dead in the tony W Hotel in Times Square, a glassine envelope of white powder in his undershorts pocket. Since 2012, White has made New Destiny her “comeback pulpit,” gradually repairing and growing the dispirited congregation back to the 10,000 members it boasted during the Tims’ heyday, a claim that cannot be verified.


hite has said she’s a lifelong Republican, but – like Trump – she’s hedged her bets over the years. In addition to contributions to George W. Bush and Mitt Romney, in 2007 she donated $2,300 to Barack Obama, which, she told Politico, was the cost of meeting the candidate at a gathering hosted by Oprah Winfrey. A decade before the Trump campaign, White was hosting a highly rated show on nine Christian television networks and satellite systems, as well as BET. She has also appeared as a guest life coach on The Tyra Banks Show. “You know you’re on to something new and significant when the most popular woman preacher on the Black Entertainment Network is a white woman,” Ebony magazine wrote when White first burst onto the scene in the early 2000s. Her show, Paula White Today, was eclectic – sometimes religious, sometimes not. One episode was titled “Millionaire God’s Way.” This was the television show that first brought White to Trump’s attention. White told the Christian Post on July 8, 2016, that Trump called her and said she was “fantastic … After watching my television show,” she said, “he tracked me down. He literally called me out of the blue, and I was amazed by how he remembered my sermon, almost word for word.” There is little mystery as to what first attracted Donald Trump to Paula White in 2002. While possibly not “a 10” by Trump’s beauty pageant and supermodel standards, White’s physical appearance is still central to her appeal – even at 50 – so she works hard to maintain it. Over the years the televangelist has not been shy about displaying her toned, fit body on exercise segments on her various TV programs, or in increasingly form-fitting outfits. She likes to tell revivals, “I work my hips and lips.” One follower on her Facebook page referred to her as a “smokin’ Barbie.” The 2,000 personal profile photos she has posted of herself resemble glamour headshots, giving the page a vaguely creepy, narcissistic vibe. The meeting between Trump and White was the beginning of a beautiful – and mutually beneficial – friendship. In 2008, Trump was a guest on her show, promoting his latest book and sharing his insights on how to get rich. White’s website features this Trump encomium: “Paula White is not only a beautiful person both inside and out, she has a significant message to offer anyone who will tune in and pay attention. She has amazing insight and the ability to deliver that message clearly as well as powerfully.” Trump thought so highly of White that in 2015 he invited her to attend the finale of The Apprentice and pray with the cast and crew. So after Trump announced his run for president, White sprang into action. In September 2015, Trump invited White CONTINUED ON PAGE 18

and about 20 other evangelical leaders to meet privately with the candidate at Trump Tower, where she has owned a $3.5 million apartment for the past decade. It was White’s first active foray into politics, and a critical move, since other evangelical leaders were already lining up behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a lifelong evangelical and the son of a preacher. The Trump Tower group huddled around the candidate and laid hands on him, a moment captured on YouTube. White, the only woman in the group, had pride of place next to the candidate, with one hand on his stomach and the other on his arm. Trump, eyes closed, lower lip extended, patted White’s hand. Before the group could break up, she seized the Pentecostal headliner slot of closer. “Father, we just secure him right now by the blood of Jesus,” she prayed. “We thank you that no weapon formed against him would prosper, and any tongue that rises against him would be condemned, according to the word of God. … Even as we lay hands on him right now, let your hand be laid upon him. Let him have a greater encounter with you, a greater encounter with the spirit of God. I secure him, I secure his children, I secure his calling and his mantle, in Jesus’ name.” When she finished, Trump embraced her and kissed her on the cheek. White’s efforts on Trump’s behalf have not been confined to the religious world. In March, she spoke to an overflow crowd at a Trump rally at the University of Central Florida arena. “I believe that God will raise up a man for such a time as this,” she said. The attacks made on him notwithstanding, she said that Trump was “a man who had more integrity than most people that I have encountered.” She added that he had contributed to various ministries, that he is “a compassionate man, a man who is very strong to his core.” Since then, White helped put together Trump’s evangelical advisory board, a group of 26 conservative leaders, and, in June, she was instrumental in organizing another Trump Tower gathering, this one of a thousand conservative evangelical figures. At the session, White was one of the few leaders Trump acknowledged from the podium. After the meeting, Trump called White, and asked, “Paula, they know I will fight for them, right?” She assured him that they did. “They all left saying they trust him, and these are all leaders in the Evangelical community who are admired and trusted themselves,” she said later. In a rare interview with Politico, White said, “I can absolutely tell you that Mr. Trump has a relationship with God. He is a Christian, he accepts Jesus as his Lord and savior.” But not everyone in the evangelical 18

world welcomes Trump’s embrace of Paula White. “Paula White is a charlatan and recognized as a heretic by every orthodox Christian, of whatever tribe,” wrote Russell Moore, chairman of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, the Southern Baptist Convention’s policy arm, in a widely quoted tweet. Nationally syndicated Christian radio host Steve Deace joined others in declaring White a heretic, primarily for her embrace of the prosperity gospel. In late June, Deace addressed the rumor that White had led Trump to Christ. If true, Deace said, “someone needs to lead her to Christ first,” an attack he renewed on an Oct. 7 broadcast.

Eric Trump even credited White with “healing” his teleprompter, which malfunctioned as he was speaking at the RNC.


rump family members were extremely pleased with White’s appearance at the Republican Convention, they told Time magazine. Eric Trump even credited her with “healing” his teleprompter, which malfunctioned as he was speaking to the convention. White was invited to Donald’s hotel room to pray with him for four hours, and then to lead a prayer circle with his wife, Melania, and his younger son, Barron. On the night Trump gave his primetime address, White rode in the car with him to the arena. “I do remember asking God to give him his words and his mind, and to use him – that it would not be his words but God’s words, that he would just really be sensitive to the Holy Spirit,” White told Time several weeks later. Never one to underplay her role, White added, “I probably [interceded] against any plot or plan or weapon of the enemy to interfere with the plan or the will of God.” Paula White’s one disappointment at the convention was that the moment of national media exposure that the televangelist might have hoped for went flat. Monday night’s speeches ran so long that by the time White took the podium, the hall was largely empty and most television cameras were turned off. Well, sic transit gloria – at least until President Trump’s inauguration. Longtime Orlando religion writer Mark I. Pinsky is author of “A Jew Among the Evangelicals: A Guide for the Perplexed.” He has covered Paula White since 2012.

FAIR TRADE The Maker Faire celebrates a culture of invention rather than consumption BY RICHA RD REEP


ike nonvoters who complain about politicians, a lot of us complain about the consumer culture while feeling (or acting) helpless to do anything about it. Those who are doing something about it, though, are swelling the ranks of an underground “maker culture” that isn’t so underground anymore, and this do-it-yourself movement will show off its ingenuity Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 22-23, at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. This year’s Maker Faire promises to be bigger than ever, renewing the faith that we can make, repair and invent right here in Central Florida. In years past, the Orlando Science Center hosted this kaleidoscopic exhibit of craftsmen, designers, inventors, artists and techies, many from our own community. The four levels of the Science Center, awkward to navigate at the best of times, became choked with 3-D printers, ceramics, laser cutters and hacked household equipment. My son, an avid Science Center fan, commented after making soap at the


first one: “Why can’t the Science Center be like this all the time?” We left full of ideas and enthusiasm for art and science, and most of all we were inspired to realize that we have more control over our environment than we might think. This year the Maker Faire has burgeoned to more than 200 exhibitors, with panel discussions, documentary films, combat robots, racing derbies, stage performances and more. Familiar faces abound: Doug Rhodehamel’s fantastical cardboard sculpture will be here, along with FamiLab’s crew and the Factur team. Orange County Public Schools will exhibit their fashion design students’ work. A mysterious outfit called Fern Creek Electronics will debut a small aerial camera, perfect for tracking the moving subject of your choice.

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● OCT. 19-25, 2016


A little over a quarter-century ago I discovered The Rocky Horror Picture Show, then newly released on VHS (kids, ask your parents what that was), in the cult movie section of my local video rental store (and what those were). Intrigued by the title, I took it home but didn’t make it to the end, bored to tears by the leaden dialogue and B-movie plot. It wasn’t until the next year, when I first experienced the film as a college freshman in a movie theater with a live audience, that Rocky Horror seized my crazed imagination, and in some ways it’s never really let go. In the decade after my RHPS de-virginization, I went on to perform in the show hundreds of times in Virginia, New Jersey, New York and Florida. I’ve produced and directed multiple “shadowcast” re-enactment troupes, including Orlando’s own Rich Weirdoes, which I helped establish at Universal CityWalk’s Cineplex in 2012 after organizing an international Rocky Horror convention there in 2001. By the time I entered my third decade of Rocky Horror fandom, midnight showings of the film had lost their appeal for me, as the formerly cohesive audience participation and clever dialogue devolved into crude chaos … or perhaps they’ve always been that way, and I’ve just gotten older. Either way, while my obsession with the Picture Show waned, the original Rocky Horror Show stage play has remained an important influence in my artistic career. Richard O’Brien’s musical sci-fi satire helped spark my ongoing interest in interactive and immersive theater, and influenced many of my theatrical efforts over the years, including Phantasmagoria; co-producer John DiDonna and I met performing the play at Theatre Downtown in 2000, and the 2004 production I directed him in remains one of my proudest memories. It’s been a decade since I was deeply involved in Rocky Horror, but I’ve followed the handful of area stagings over the intervening years – such as Josh “Ginger Minj” Eads’ productions at Sleuths – with interest. Last weekend, I followed the show’s

The AntiGravity troupe has teamed up with Red Fish Theatre for a highflying reimagining of The Rocky Horror Show that is unlike any I’ve experienced. latest local incarnation all the way to Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway (aka the seventh circle of tourist traffic hell), where the musical has found a temporary home in a most unusual venue. AntiGravity appears from the outside to be an Art Deco theater incongruously erected in a Kissimmee strip mall; inside, it’s like a cross between an industrial warehouse and circus tent, with a sharply elevated stage and soaring walls of exposed brick bracketed by the bungee cords and other apparatus that allows AntiGravity’s aerialists to perform their heart-stopping Cirque-style acrobatics. Stunt designer Daniel Stover’s AntiGravity troupe has teamed up with director Adam Graham of Red Fish Theatre for a high-flying reimagining of The Rocky Horror Show that I can certainly say is unlike any I’ve experienced – and when you’ve worn the fishnets as many times as I have, that’s saying something. AntiGravity’s rough-hewn confines conceal a wealth of toys, including hydraulics floors that unfold to reveal trampolines and ceiling-mounted tracks that allow harnessed performers to run horizontally across walls like in NYC’s Fuerza Bruta. Nearly every scene in the show is embellished with airborne feats, from Riff Raff’s dramatic wall-walking entrance in “Over at the Frankenstein Place” to the silk-swinging solo accompanying “I’m Going Home.” Of course, midair marvels alone don’t make a must-see musical (see my 2015 review of Pippin), but Graham achieved his primary duty as director by assembling a first-class leading cast. Moses Galarza’s take on Frank N. Furter is totally different from Tim Curry’s iconic transvestite,

adding a touch of modern sass and a more melodic approach to the tunes. Victor Souffrant and Alyssa Yost are hilariously unhinged as sibling servants Riff Raff and Magenta, and Erica Rush’s cheerleader Columbia is appropriately irritating. Tony Flaherty can carry a tune (a historical rarity for actors playing the title role) while simultaneously swinging from the ceiling, and Kalen Dennis brings a gender-bent twist to Eddie, with ensuing pronoun confusion. Holding all the madness in check (more or less) is emcee Logan Donahoo, who leads the pre-show warmup and intermission trivia contest, along with a rotating team of narrators, including J. Michael Roddy and Adrian LePeltier. I had the pleasure of seeing Summer Aiello and Robyn Pedretti Kelly share the role, and they brought the same aptitude for audience-baiting improv to the Z-grade exposition that they display daily at Universal’s Horror Make-Up Show. My favorite member of the ensemble was Tiana Akers, who invested Janet Weiss with a spunky self-empowerment that defies any slut-shaming; when she hesitates to take the hand Brad (Adam Galarza) offers during “Superheroes,” it adds a depth to the characters that I wish were more present throughout the production. While the aerial acrobatics are impressive, they aren’t always thematically integrated into the action and often overwhelm the staging, leaving the leads standing stiffly in static formations. Graham gets the play’s snappy pacing and campy comedy down pat, but the overhead aesthetics occasionally obscure opportunities to dig under the surface for something more heartfelt. Even the band led by Serina Marshall lacks soul; their bythe-numbers synthesizer renderings of the soundtrack are sufficient, but without real electric guitar, it ain’t rock & roll. However, even if – like Icarus and Dr. Furter himself – this Rocky Horror doesn’t ultimately accomplish all its ambitious intentions, the altitude it achieves along the way is well worth applauding.

AH, SWEET MYSTERY MEAT OF LIFE Ten top tube steaks around town


hether you call them hot dogs, wieners, tube steaks or franks, they remain the king of the hand-held meals. No other dish (besides, perhaps, macaroni and cheese) can span the range from so simple it’s mere kid food to super-gourmet. And while most states think of hot dogs as a summertime thing, we get that mild summer vibe year-round, so we can chomp a weenie any month we want to. Here are 10 of our current favorite places to see man bite dog.

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● OCT. 19-25, 2016

Even though Danny Meyer’s mega-chain is New Yorkbased, they still do a mean impression of a Chicago hot dog. The bun is grilled until crisp (the only variation from a true Chi-dog, where it would be a soft-steamed poppy-seed bun), then topped with sport peppers, neon relish, tomato, onion, celery salt and a pickle spear. 119 N. Orlando Ave., Winter Park, 321-203-5130; also 8359 International Drive, 407-205-0362,

The Fat One at Fat One’s Hot Dogs & Italian Ice

Jumbo Chicago Hot Dog at Hot Dog Heaven

Fans of the former N*Sync boy came out in hordes when Joey Fatone opened Fat One’s in the Florida Mall, sporting the self-deprecating moniker he’s been known by for years. We’re fans of the Fat One, the signature foot-long hot dog topped with fries, corned beef, mozzarella, cheese sauce, green onions and pepperoni.

It’s hard to argue that this isn’t Orlando’s classic spot for hot dogs – a must-visit since 1987 for friends coming from out of town. This Chicago dog is fully authentic, even down to the steamed poppy-seed bun. Get a reusable, refillable logo mug filled with root beer to go with your dog, then claim a spot at the communal bench outside.

Florida Mall, 8001 S. Orange Blossom Trail,

Hawaiian-Style Hula Dog at Kona Dog Almost every day of the week, you’ll find this food truck somewhere around town doling out dogs from their service window. The Hula dog is about as close to Oahu as you’ll get without a 14-hour plane ride. Get it Hawaiian-style, tucked into a sweet roll with pineapple compote, mango mustard and jalapeño sauce. Check for current location

Waffle Dog at Doghouse Forget everything you thought you knew about how to eat waffles and sausage, breakfast’s perfect salty-sweet pair. The Waffle Dog is a brunchy take on a corn dog, with a blueberry-maple sausage on a stick enrobed in a fresh waffle. It’s served with blueberry compote for dipping; it can be made with a regular all-beef Hebrew National, a vegan dog or a certified Angus beef one; and it’s only $7 bucks. Bye-bye, budget-breaking brunch. 2527 Edgewater Drive, 407-412-5409,


Shack-ago Dog at Shake Shack

5355 E. Colonial Drive, 407-282-5746,

Super Chubby Dressed at Chubby’s Hot Dogs & Subs Another temple to the Chicago-style dog, Chubby’s is tucked into a strip mall next to the Porsche dealership on 17-92. You’ll find Italian and Polish sausages there, too, if that’s the kind of tube meat you prefer. Choose either a plain bun or steamed poppy-seed bun, plus all the typical toppings you’d find riverside on a summer day in the Second City. 9400 S. Highway 17-92, Maitland, 407-331-3647,

Bacon Mac Frank at Frank & Steins If you’re planning on swilling a boatload of suds at the bar, you might want something to soak it all up. Enter the Bacon Mac Frank, an all-beef hot dog in a steamed poppy-seed bun topped with creamy mac & cheese, bacon crumbles and drizzled with sriracha. 150 S. Magnolia Ave., 407-412-9230,


Chili Cheese Dog at Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers You don’t go to this new local outpost of the Pennsylvania chain to eat healthy, so go for the Chili Cheese Dog whenever you have a chance. The hearty chili, cheddar shreds and onions top the all-beef frank, but the real star is the bun – a split-top roll toasted on the flat-top grill until crisp. 3200 S. Orange Ave., 407-757-2318,

New York Dog at Sonic Of course this drive-in chain has hot dogs, both foot-long Coneys and classic wieners. We feel a little shame naming a huge fast-food chain to this list, but we truly appreciate their version of an NYC dirty-water dog, topped with sauerkraut, grilled onions and spicy brown deli mustard. Pair with a cherry

limeade for best results on a day when you’ve got too many errands to run to get out of the car. Multiple locations,

Holiday Dog at Vegan Hot Dog Cart For about 10 years, the Vegan Hot Dog Cart has provided cruelty-free comestibles to club-goers on Orange Avenue. The veggie dog VHDC uses is perfectly smoky and satisfying, and you can top it with any of the veganfriendly toppings on tap, but we like the Holiday Dog best: fried sweet onions, homemade cranberry sauce, Carolina mustard barbecue sauce and parsley. The VHDC makes appearances at other events, too, including Veg Fest and Tasty Tuesdays in the Milk District. 65 N. Orange Ave., theveganhotdogcart

Between the knick-knacks and comfy couches that constitute the inside decor and the laid-back patio outside, it’s way more akin to visiting a friend with great taste in wine, beer and cigars – who lets you smoke inside! – than it is to a typical bar.

enry, one of cinema’s most memorable serial killers, is turning 30 years old. That means, of course, that he can finally run for U.S. Senate. Considering our real-life political alternatives in 2016, that might actually be less of a horror show, comparatively, than one might think. But, nevertheless, it’s probably a good thing that instead of being on Capitol Hill, Henry will be back in cinemas, where he belongs. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, directed and co-written by John McNaughton and starring Michael Rooker in his screen debut, is getting a limited rerelease in a new 4K restoration. (The closest city to ours showing it on the big screen is Atlanta; however, the movie is also streaming on Netflix.) Many under the age of 45 will be seeing it for the first time, considering it was rated X and received only a limited release four years after it debuted at the Chicago International Film Festival in 1986.

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● OCT. 19-25, 2016

killer chic, cannot be overstated. Loosely based on real serial killer Henry Lee Lucas, the film is a frank and unpretentiously brutal look at a few days in Henry’s life, during which he hangs out with a fellow sociopath, Otis, and Otis’ sister, the unsuspecting Becky, while committing unspeakable atrocities. Though Henry does seem to have some sort of perverted ethical code – at least in his own mind – he exists only to survive. And he survives solely on his principle of “it’s either you or them.” Grittily shot on 16mm with a budget of just $100,000 and no shooting permits, the production can look amateurish and dated to young eyes (particularly those who’ve grown up during the massive leap forward in camera and video technology of the past 30 years), but that’s actually part of its charm, especially when combined with Rooker’s straightforward but mesmerizing turn and the sympathetic and slightly sad performance of Tracy Arnold as Becky.

The late Tom Towles, as Otis, however, was just plain bad, despite some appropriately creepy teeth and tense chemistry with Rooker. Henry was partly meant to send a message, to teach a lesson about violence, though the popularity of the film’s tagline “Yeah, I killed my mama” as a cultural punchline somewhat undercut any edifying intentions. But while statistics don’t necessarily prove we’re a more violent society now than we were 30 years ago, we’re undoubtedly a more brutal and less social one, despite the rise of “social” media. We’ve essentially become more like the title character, disconnected from our fellow humans. Film and, indeed, all art doesn’t deserve all the blame – or even much of it – but because cinema is a more graphically violent environment now than it was three decades ago, it raises the question: Do we, the movie-going public, demand more violent content, or are today’s filmmakers simply less hesitant to give it to us? Either way, it’s clear that violence bothers us less than it used to. And perhaps Henry unwittingly played a small part in getting us where we are today. Of course, the 1970s and ’80s were, in general, fairly violent cinematic decades, at least when compared with the Production Code era. But, for many, Henry projected a heightened brutality because of its bleakness and lack of commentary. It wasn’t saying anything about the horror – it was just letting it be. In that respect, it was more disturbing – yet also more mature – than the cartoonish, gratuitous bloodbaths of ’80s action films. Regarding the shockingly abrupt and dispassionate ending, which is almost as emotionally jarring as the finale of Five Easy Pieces, Rooker says, in the documentary Portrait: The Making of Henry, “It’s the only resolution that could be. Otherwise it would be just like any of the other, you know, bullshit Hollywood slasher movies.” Co-producer Steven Jones, in the aforementioned doc, recalls a conversation he had with one viewer: “I had sort of an argument with a fellow who stood up and said, ‘I felt terrible at the end of that movie.’ And I said, ‘That’s sort of the point. You’re not supposed to feel good about this. … What did you think of the Schwarzenegger movie where they machine-gunned these 360 people?’ … He said, ‘Well, that’s entertainment.’ And I said, ‘Well, there’s something wrong with you.’” So go ahead and watch the re-release of Henry. You might be moved by it, you might be disgusted by it, and you might even consider it great art. But if you’re entertained or amused by it, there is probably something wrong with you.


Ouija: Origin of Evil

BY STEVE SCHNEID ER OPENING THIS WEEK 31 “You already know if it’s for you,” says

Film School Rejects. And I guess they mean “you” in the singular, since it’s hard to imagine a much larger audience for the R-rated version of a Rob Zombie movie that’ll be available uncut for home viewing sooner rather than later, and which already played theaters as a one-night-only Fathom event less than two months ago. But if that dude is you, enjoy watching a bunch of kidnapped carnival workers try to escape from “an endless parade of homicidal maniacs.” Oh, Rob! (R) Jack Reacher: Never Go Back It’s hard to take movies like this seriously if you have friends who still get their books from the library. Just by osmosis, I knew the production of that Janet Evanovich flick was like watching a car head straight for a brick wall. And I recently had the pleasure of hearing another friend explain why the casting of Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher was just wrong, wrong, wrong. Most of America seemed to agree, since the first film in the franchise was pretty much a box-office dud. But it was an unexpected hit in places like Europe – where they still get their books directly from Johannes Gutenberg – so now we have to put up with a sequel. This time, the embattled former military policeman finds himself accused of all manner of evils, including a 16-year-old homicide and what one site humorously referred to as “fathering a child with a woman.” Hey, if you’re Tom Cruise, that’s a major devaluation of your brand right there. (PG-13) Keeping Up With the Joneses Zach Galifianakis

and Isla Fisher play a married couple who find it difficult to keep pace with their picture-perfect neighbors, Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. Well, what do you expect when you’re living next door to Don Draper and Wonder Woman? Actually, these Joneses are top-secret government agents, which

leads to all sorts of dangerous shenanigans. Two doors down, Mr. and Mrs. Smith are busy dividing up the marital property. (PG-13) Ouija: Origin of Evil This prequel to the 2014

horror hit pits a family of supernatural scammers against actual evil spirits unleashed by the legendary game board. Interestingly, the movie is set in 1967, which in the real world was one year after Parker Brothers acquired commercial rights to the Ouija trademark. Fingers crossed for a surprise cameo by a demonic Mr. Monopoly. (PG-13) Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween Ethical

quandary time: Can I continue to rail against the endless parade of Tyler Perry movies when the genre of the cheap Halloween cash-in is one of my absolute favorites in all movies and TV? Probably not, because what’s good for the Bowery Boys has to be good for Madea. Blessings, then, to the deathlessly salty matron as she fends off a holiday attack from the traditional enemies of middle-aged black women everywhere. Like mischievous poltergeists and 4-year-olds dressed as Tucker Carlson. PG-13 ALSO PLAYING: American Honey The doggedly still-alive

Shia LaBeouf has one of the major roles in this British-made portrait of kids who travel the U.S. Midwest selling magazine subscriptions. Working title: True Grit: The Story of America’s Family Newspaper. (R) Dos Policias en Apuros Two Dominican cops are teamed with a no-nonsense FBI agent. Yuks ensue. In Spanish, English and Sofia Vergara. (not yet rated) La Leyenda del Chupacabras An animated horror comedy about a wrongly accused Mexican insurgent who has to battle the legendary flying monster. In Spanish, so just deal with it. (PG)

they would sound contemporary to what’s alternative today. We steered away from over-production and fitting in, especially back then, so as not to sound like everyone at the time and achieve our own sound. It’s something that worked for us then and continues on.

Orlando Weekly: The last album was 25 years ago, 1991’s World Outside, and the band has remained musically relevant and successful as a live act. That’s a great position to be in. Tim Butler: Well, I have to say that’s in

eautiful chaos” was a phrase that came up when Orlando Weekly spoke with Tim Butler, bass player and co-founder of the Psychedelic Furs, recently. He was talking about their early days during the heyday of punk in the late 1970s. It was what his brother and lead songwriter for the band, Richard Butler, would say to the press to describe the band’s sound. “Funny thing is, one could say the same today,” deadpans Tim. To say the least, it’s a humble summation of a body of songs that stand toe to toe with contemporaries like Echo and the Bunnymen and New Order in terms of postpunk ambition and romantic vision. Songs like “Pretty in Pink” and “Sister Europe” were the perfect soundtrack for outsider teens in the 1980s, while still vying for mainstream radio play. As the band readies for an autumn American tour, Tim Butler talked to the Weekly about what they have in store for this stateside jaunt.

This incarnation of the band, with Mars Williams (saxophone) in particular, certainly could lead to some exciting musical territory live. What are we going to see and hear at this show? “Pretty in Pink”? “Sister Europe”?

We play all those songs but in a slimmeddown version without the over-production. We dig deeply into our album tracks. We play the classics pretty straight but we will add something in at the spur of the moment if that happens onstage.

you did something important and that it had an effect on people. ... During a quiet part in a song, to hear the audience singing along … Let’s talk about Mars, who’s been your horn player for years now. (Williams has a diverse portfolio from Anthony Braxton to Robert Palmer to Ministry.) 

He came to us by recommendation from our previous horn player. Mars is one of, if not the best saxophone players around. He’s hard-working like James Brown. He’ll stop on tour, hop on a plane and work a date or a recording with a jazz trio, or his own thing. What’s the upcoming tour going to be like? What’s on the band’s mind?

We’re trying to put something together, some new songs for a new album later this year or next. We were listening to Midnight to PSYCHEDELIC FURS Midnight recently and with My Jerusalem we haven’t played those 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19 songs in recent years. “All Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Ave. of the Law” and “Angels 407-228-1220 Don’t Cry” have made their way back into our $29.50-$49.50 repertoire.

With Mars on sax, we play the songs differently as we please but within the structure of the songs. If we didn’t we’d probably be hanged! Which is amazing, it makes you say, “Wow, 30 years later and the songs are still being played and loved,” and it makes for the feeling that

Any stories from the many paths you’ve crossed?

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● OCT. 19-25, 2016


Acts of true intrigue are rare.

But New Jersey’s Ho99o9 (Oct. 11, Spacebar) is definitely one of them, and they’re rising up hard right now. The band has been dismissive of the Death Grips parallel but there’s more than a passing resemblance, and it’s not just some facile black thing either. It’s the lurid onslaught that channels pure punk essence and extreme modern noise into a sensory jihad. If anything, with their jones for horror themes and imagery, they’re more gripped by death than Death Grips, even. And actually, Ho99o9 are less willfully arty, making the sum something like the hardcore punk spawn of Gravediggaz. Apparently, I’m not the only one who’s been waiting for that. For their first Orlando appearance ever, they went straight guerrilla and blitzed the Milk District with no mainstream fanfare, no traditional venue, no cover, not even an opener. It was all street buzz. And like last week’s Eric Bachmann living room show and the Posies’ secret pop-up show, local ties are to be thanked for this fortune. Their manager, Mike Feinberg, is a part-time local and so brought the goods home to make this special event happen. Undeniably, Ho99o9 are all about mystique and shock. But, as this show proved like a head-on collision, it’s not all just image. In performance, they are pure detonation, a volcano in a box. Wild, violent, apocalyptic, it’s one of the most visceral live punches in the game right now. Even with the tinder of hype and reputation, nothing goes up without a real spark. And with their live ignition, the

Ho99o9 are all about mystique and shock. In performance, they are pure detonation, a volcano in a box. It’s one of the most visceral live punches in the game right now. usually arty Spacebar went full-on Uncle Lou’s and became a lawless pit. Shit got animalistic. You know it’s something special when you see bar owner Tommy Mot in the pit. In sound and look, Ho99o9 are equal parts punk and sensation. They’re maximum, they’re now and – between the fury they expel and the fury they incite – it’s clear they’re 100 fucking percent real. As the kickoff for some underground shows the band are playing to ramp up to the spring release of their debut LP, this will probably be the smallest venue you’ll ever see them in again. And if you were there, you’ve got eternal bragging rights. You may have noticed some seismic changes in the world of Orlando art-pop band Moon Jelly (Oct. 9, Stardust Video & Coffee) over the last year or so. There’s been some lineup shifting and a major, more serious pivot in their aesthetic that was unveiled at an excellent multimedia show at the Gallery at Avalon Island’s In Between Series last summer. All those turns have now culminated in a total over-

haul. They’ve rechristened themselves the Calliope Co. and core collaborative partners Anna Wallace and Timothy Murray will soon migrate to L.A., at the end of November. As it now stands, the latest phase of this ever-unfolding blossom is a psychedelic adventure of beauty, purpose and arc. Though pregnant with atmosphere and exploration, it’s not aimless. In fact, there’s more destination in what they’re doing now than ever. Their increasingly expansive music has open-ended possibility but there are real melodies and songs here. To fully render the mood-rich show, Broken Machine Films’ Joshua Rogers lent his warped, lost-transmission visuals to thrust the affair further into another dimension. Until they go west and become dead to us, you’ll have a final chance to catch the phoenix that the Calliope Co. have become at their farewell performance at the Gallery at Avalon Island on Nov. 12. Brain drain is just the worst, and this one definitely hurts since Murray alone has kept Orlando legit weird for years. Across many experimental projects like Auto Chlor, Glen Runciter, Idi Bidi Midi Comidi, cell phone band Zenas Fisk, and the Pedal Challenge, the man’s made a career of tracing the line between insanity and genius. Even so, I don’t rue this one too much. These guys have ties too plentiful and a footprint too embedded in the Orlando underground to ever lose touch. There will always be a home for them here once L.A. drains their souls.

Orlando Film Festival

Thursday, 20



The Orlando Film Festival is getting big – really big. Although it’s considered the city’s No. 2 movie event (after the Florida Film Festival, which is twice as long and twice as well attended, and considered more prestigious), the OFF has grown into a monster, with 327 movies, the most in its 11-year history. That makes it the biggest in Central Florida, and possibly the state, judged by number of offerings. Held at downtown’s Cobb Plaza Cinema Café, the festival is taking over six screens and running through Sunday. Most of the films are short ones: 258 shorts spread over 35 programs. Of the 69 features, 44 are narrative and 25 are documentaries. Highlights include the opening-night film, Te Ata; the world premiere of the Kevin Smith biopic Shooting Clerks; many films with an LGBT theme; and parties and discussion panels. The festival does not sell individualfilm tickets, so you must buy a one-day ticket for $20 or a festival pass for $50-$100. And because the schedule allows one to see no more than about a fifth of the offerings, you’ll also need to do your homework, or just hope you get lucky. Viddy well! – Cameron Meier 7 p.m. Wednesday, 11 a.m. Thursday-Sunday | Cobb Plaza Cinema Café, 155 S. Orange Ave. | | $20-$100

Dia de los Muertos & Monster Factory


In its seventh iteration, CityArts’ Dia de los Muertos and Monster Factory Exhibit Party is back this week in downtown Orlando. This not-so-scary block party features original artwork based on Halloween, as well as the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, along with art vendors, a kids craft area and face painting. Get the good kind of creeps from a performance by macabre circus troupe Phantasmagoria, plus an additional live performance by Salvador Live. Make sure to get some agua de jamaica to wash down your tamales from Tamale Company Food Truck, who’ll be there to take care of your gastronomic needs. – Monivette Cordeiro

Brothers Andy and Edwin White grew up in Orlando, but their band, Tonstartssbandht, seems to be a citizen of no one place, geographically or musically. Drawing from psych, garage, chillwave (’member that?), noise and pop, the brothers create a shimmering, raw hybrid that’s equal parts art-school experimentation and jam-band virtuosity. Based in Brooklyn, the duo have spent the past few years touring the world, playing spots as diverse as Christchurch, New Zealand; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Ljubljana, Slovenia. And this hometown show – their first in four years – finds them returning from a tour of China. Their live sets push the boundaries of genre and performance, resulting in something that can be better described as an “experience” than a “show.” Promoters Ugly Orange look like they’re going to be capitalizing on that distinction with a simultaneous art installation by Hannah Spector. Expect this one to hit capacity. – Thaddeus McCollum

Dr. Lonnie Smith

Beartooth MUSIC

The Blue Bamboo Performing Arts Center has certainly been stepping up their game lately with shows from the likes of Nicholas Payton and Ira Sullivan, and they’re keeping on their roll this Friday with a two-set performance from the great Dr. Lonnie Smith. If you’re not familiar with this renowned artist, here's the rundown: He’s sat in with the Roots on The Tonight Show and has a new album out on Blue Note, Evolution. If you’ve enjoyed the performances of local favorites like DJ Nigel, BMF and Eugene Snowden, we guarantee they would espouse the greatness of Dr. Lonnie Smith, or have even played or borrowed a lick or two from one of his many classics. A whole lot of hip-hop wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the good doctor’s hard driving, soulful and cerebral Hammond B-3 organ-dominated funk. Some of his tunes, like “Spinning Wheel” and “Move Your Hand,” have been sampled so many times that it boggles the mind. A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan, and the D.I.T.C. crew – to name a few – owe the man plenty of thanks. This performance could prove to be a major arrival point for the cultural and live music scene here in Central Florida. It’s retro, metro and contempo, and music devotees need to witness this. – Kyle Eagle

For some, the breakup of metalcore scene mainstay Attack Attack! in 2012 was upsetting. For others, it's looked at fondly, as the breakup pushed former lead singer Caleb Shomo to form Beartooth. Originally started as a joke band, Beartooth quickly evolved into an outlet for Shomo. And with the band’s loud and aggressive sound, as well as their realistic and sometimes harsh lyrics, it has become an outlet for fans as well. If you choose to attend, you can expect mosh pits to break out as Shomo screams at the top of his lungs, with the crowd matching him lyric for lyric. And while this tour is for their new album, Aggressive, it wouldn’t be a Beartooth show without old favorites like “Body Bag” and “In Between.” – Martina Smith

Central Florida Veg Fest Not to be rude, but chances are you rarely think about what you eat. Food consumption in this country is based on three criteria: taste, speed and potential to leave you so full that you don’t think about your next meal for at least two hours. It’s not your fault. We don’t blame you. It’s most likely a mix of too much advertising from fast food companies and overpriced healthy food that leaves you, according to agricultural journalist Michael Pollan, scarfing down 20 percent of your meals in your Kia Sorrento. In short, it’s capitalism that’s ruining your insides. More than half of Americans think that doing their taxes is harder than eating healthy, according to the International Food Information Council Foundation. For those of you who think that, the Vegetarians of Central Florida are hoping to change your mind with their 11th annual Central Florida Veg Fest at Festival Park. Drop your kids off at the Veggie Kids Zone for some smoothies and kids yoga while you browse organic selections, watch meal prep demonstrations and maybe sit on the grass for an acoustic guitar jam sesh with some dudes who probably ate some kale today. – Adam Manno 10 a.m.-6 p.m. | Festival Park, 2911 E.

Foreign Dissent 3 MUSIC

Of all the shows surrounding the annual punk mecca the Fest, Orlando’s Foreign Dissent is one of the most interesting, enlightening and exclusive. Organized by local promoter Punching Babies, this showcase of international Fest-bound bands is essentially a punk-rock Benetton ad. This diverse third edition features a new, globespanning class of bands that includes the melodic romp of No Fun (Germany), the true emo of the Caulfield Cult (Singapore), the classic anthem punk of Traverse (France), the folk-punk of Ducking Punches (England) and the dynamic attack of Lemmiwinks (Panama). With all of them making Orlando debuts, it doesn’t get any fresher than this. Foreign Dissent is the only event of its kind around here, and it’s become a great local institution. Diplomacy never rocked so hard. – Bao Le-Huu with No Fun, Caulfield Cult, Traverse, Ducking Punches, Lemmiwinks | 7:30 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | | $10

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● OCT. 19-25, 2016


Cult Classics: The Devil’s Rejects FILM

It’s kind of weird that Rob Zombie, a guy who owes most of his mainstream popularity to MTV’s Beavis and Butthead, is now a successful filmmaker of the horror auteur variety, but here we are. As a director, Zombie’s genre influences are impeccable; he draws from the best in classic grindhouse horror, as well as established greats like John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper. In execution, though, homage often prevents Zombie from adding any new perspective to the genre. The reviews for his latest feature, 31, for example, have been less than glowing. So for a look at why Zombie still gets bankrolled to show off his adolescent obsessions for a paying audience, check out this screening of his best film, 2005’s The Devil’s Rejects. A sequel to his debut, House of 1,000 Corpses, the film follows the demented Firefly family as they try to evade capture by law enforcement while still trying to extend their violent, murderous spree. Anchored by an iconic performance from character actor Sid Haig as the clownfaced Captain Spaulding, the film is a frenetic, winking tribute to the slasher flicks of the ’70s – just with way more explicit violence and sex. – Thaddeus McCollum 9:30 p.m. | Enzian Theater, 1300 S.

Waiting to pay for my groceries at the market this evening, this guy, stinking of booze, says to my 9-year-old daughter, “Sweetheart, can you put the divider thing there for me?” First, why is some leering grown man calling my child “sweetheart”? He then thumps two huge bottles of vodka down on the belt. I move closer to my daughter; he then reaches his hand over me and wraps his hand around her arm, saying, “Now, you be nice to your Mommy, sweetie.” I pluck his hand off. “Do not touch my child,” I say. My other hand is pressed against my daughter’s ribs, and I can feel her heart POUNDING. “You have a beautiful daughter,” he says. The cashier, whom we know, a guy, looks at me, eyebrows up. I roll my eyes. So pissed. We leave. “I hated that man,” my daughter says once we get in the car. “He smelled bad, I wanted to hit him, if anyone ever does that to me again I’m going to scream.” Here we effing go: “Sometimes you have to be hypervigilant,” I tell my daughter, “because some gross men out there feel they are entitled to touch us.” And then I share my story: “When I was a little girl …” I don’t even remember the first time it happened to me. I don’t remember the last time some pervert rubbed up against me. But that’s what you have to deal with when you are a girl. We have to learn to brush this shit off, to make sure that this endless assault course of predators doesn’t take one bit of your pride, your confidence or your sense of peace as you walk through this world. I am so angry. We should call this the “Trump Talk.” The depressing conversation that every parent needs to have with their little girl about revolting, predatory, entitled men. The Trump Talk. Mother And Daughter Discuss Enraging Realities I’m sorry about what happened to your daughter at the grocery store – I’m sorry about what was done to your daughter by that entitled asshole at the grocery store – but I’m glad you were there with her when it happened. The author Kelly Oxford, in response to Donald Trump’s horrific comments about sexually assaulting women, called on women to tweet about their first assaults under the hashtag #notokay. Oxford’s post went viral – more than a million women responded – and reading through the seemingly endless thread, I was struck by how many women were alone the first time they were assaulted. Oxford herself was alone the first time it happened to her: “Old man on a city bus grabs my ‘pussy’ and smiles at me. I’m 12.” A lot of women I know, including some very close friends, were your daughter’s age the first time it happened to them, MADDER, but they were alone. Tragically, many assumed that they had done something wrong, that they had invited this on themselves somehow, and most didn’t go 58

to their parents for fear of getting into trouble. And when it inevitably happened again, some became convinced they were indeed to blame, that they were bringing this on themselves somehow, because they thought it wasn’t happening to anyone else, just them. So thank God you were there with your daughter, MADDER, there to pull that asshole’s hand off of her, there to protect her from worse, and there to help her process the experience. And in that car ride home you inoculated your daughter with your message (you are a human being and you have a right to move through this world unmolested) before gross predators could infect her with theirs (you are only an object and we have a right to touch you). I want to live in a world where this sort of thing doesn’t happen to anyone’s daughter, MADDER, but until we do: Every little girl should be so lucky as to have a trusted adult standing by ready to intervene when it does happen. I only wish the grocery store clerk had intervened, too. Regarding your suggestion, MADDER, I’ve received roughly 10 million emails begging me to do for Donald Trump what I did for Rick Santorum: My readers and I redefined santorum (“the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex”) and some wanted us to do the same for Trump. People even sent in suggestions, e.g., trump is the streak of shit a large turd sometimes leaves on the bottom of the toilet bowl; trump is the snot that sometimes runs out of your nose when you’re giving a blowjob; a trump is a guy so hopelessly inept in bed that no woman (or man) wants him, no matter how rich he is. The suggested new meanings all struck me as trivial and snarky – and I don’t think there’s anything trivial about the racism, sexism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and violence that Trump has mainstreamed and normalized, and I’m not inclined to snark about it. And, besides, “trump” already has a slang meaning: It means “to fart audibly” in Great Britain – and that definition is already in the Oxford English Dictionary. And it frankly didn’t seem possible to make Donald Trump’s name any more revolting than he already has. If I may paraphrase the amazing letter the New York Times sent to Trump after he demanded they retract a story about the women he’s assaulted: Nothing I could say in my sex column could even slightly elevate the feelings of disgust decent people experience whenever they hear his name. Mr. Trump, through his own words and actions, has already redefined his last name. But then your email arrived, MADDER, and I set aside the column I was already working on to rush your idea into print. Because your suggestion – that parents call the conversation they need to have with their daughters about predatory and entitled men the “Trump Talk” – is just as fitting and apt as the ●

“frothy mixture” definition of santorum. It’s not trivial and it’s not snarky. It has gravitas, MADDER, and here’s hoping “Trump Talk” isn’t just widely adopted, but universally practiced. Because no little girl who gets groped on a bus or in a grocery store or on a subway or in a classroom should ever have to wonder if she did something wrong. Big fan, longtime reader and listener, and I need your help. How in the hell can a bipartisan relationship survive this election? Things have gotten so heated that my husband and I recently exploded in an ugly argument. I know I’m not fighting fair – calling him stupid and irresponsible for supporting Trump – and I’m being a shitty partner, and he’s being shitty in response by spouting Clinton conspiracy theories. A huge part of it is that he’s someone who lives to disagree – a true contrarian – and our current political environment has been like manna from heaven for his sense of humor. What advice do you have? We’ve been together for ages and have survived other elections and issues. But, as you know, this one’s different. Struggling After Debate Unlike your husband, SAD, I don’t think there’s anything funny about Donald Trump. I’m going to enjoy watching him lose the election, and I’m going to enjoy watching his hotels and golf courses go out of business one by one, but our politics and public life have been sickened by the poison that is Donald Trump. It’s going to take years for us to recover, SAD, and I just don’t see the humor in it. And personally, SAD, I wouldn’t be able to climb into bed with someone who was planning to vote for Donald Trump. I would be out the door. But if you can’t leave because you love him despite his moral and political bankruptcy, or because leaving isn’t an option for you financially, avoid the subject for the next three weeks, don’t take whatever bait your husband throws out, and try not to gloat too much when Hillary hands Donald his ass on Nov. 8. On the Lovecast, Dan chats with a law professor about advanced sexual directives:
