Readers react to last week’s stories. On Sept. 13, news writer Monivette Cordeiro reported that a private company called Pluris wants to charge residents of the east Orange County neighborhood of Wedgefield more for their water, despite the fact that some people refuse to drink it. Many complain their water is cloudy or reeks of chlorine, though the Florida Department of Environmental Protection says Wedgefield’s water does not pose an immediate health risk. @Lisa Doyle If the PSC’s handling of the utilities rate request is any indication, Wedgefield’s provider will likely get most if not all of what they ask for, regardless of water quality or customer service or anything else. @Trisha Kelley Hahn I’ve been in Wedgefield for eight years now and it’s ridiculous how much I pay for water. We don’t drink the water and I don’t even let my dog drink it either.

@Jason Blackwell Got to love privatization! Pay more for water and they pay their employees less with worse customer service. On Sept. 20, we wrote about state Rep. Ross Spano filing a bill to make pornography a public health crisis. Shortly thereafter, we noticed Spano’s Twitter account had ‘‘liked’ an explicit lesbian porn clip. @Sean Grebey Any addiction is a problem, including porn. We shouldn’t pretend otherwise. @Roger Docking His wife caught him partaking. Now he’s going to waste all of our time and taxes because he was too lazy to hide his browsing history. #rookiemove

Hurricane Irma leaves thousands homeless, Florida is overflowing with poop, the Twitter account of a porn-hating lawmaker ‘liked’ a porn clip and other things you may have missed this week. »

Twitter account of Florida lawmaker who’s trying to declare porn a public health crisis ‘liked’ a porn clip: After filing a bill decrying the evils of pornography and its effect on women and children, state Rep. Ross Spano, R-Dover, played himself after his Twitter account “favorited” a pornographic tweet last January. Looking back through Spano’s Twitter “likes,” Orlando Weekly spotted FSU football clips, Bible verses … and a hard-core, 17-second Reality Kings video clip of two women doing the dirty from the “Goddess Lesbian” Twitter account. In a statement, Spano said, “Obviously, I have a long social media history on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram since I was first elected in 2012. With a thorough examination of my accounts, it will be easy to see that this is not my doing. I have since gone back, once notified, and rectified the problem. And I’m now looking into how it occurred in the first place.” Honestly, the problem here isn’t that Spano may have looked at smut – it’s the hypocrisy of blaming porn for human trafficking, exploitation of children, sex slavery and domestic violence and in the same breath being literally out of breath by online erotica.

@Jo Flores It’s funny. We have a crazed idiot in the Oval Office ready to threaten war, but these idiots continue to focus on stupid things like porn. They stood by him even when he degraded women. They should officially should no longer stand by “moral” causes if they have a lunatic as their leader!

Hurricane Irma leaves 10,000 people homeless in the Florida Keys: Now back to stuff that matters. Hurricane Irma’s destructive path decimated the Florida Keys and left an estimated 10,000 people homeless, Gov. Rick Scott says. The Miami Herald reports Scott made the estimate using data from people that have signed up for FEMA assistance. Officials have told residents returning to the islands that they will have to be “self-sustaining” because of limited access to power, supplies, sewer service and water.

»

Tenth patient dies from Florida nursing home that lost power after Irma: A 10th resident from the stifling Hollywood nursing home that was evacuated last week has died. Martha Murray, 94, is the latest fatality associated with the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, which lost air conditioning after the hurricane knocked out power. Law enforcement officials are investigating the deaths. The governor’s administration has suspended the facility’s license after blocking admissions and removing them from the Medicaid program. The Rehabilitation Center has sued, challenging the admissions moratorium and Medicaid cutoff.

»

Florida still overflowing with poop weeks after Irma: Thanks to Irma beating down on our water infrastructure, the Department of Environmental Protections has seen hundreds of reports of gallons upon gallons of raw sewage flowing into streets and waterways across the state. Local Orange County officials even asked residents to reduce their water consumption to reduce the impact on the wastewater system. By last week, nearly 800 wastewater pump stations had been restored, so give yourself a well-deserved hurricane-recovery bubble bath. mcordeiro@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

where the hell is kekistan? Trump trolls say they’re just in it for the lulz, but their half-ironic bigotry helps normalize events like the Charlottesville terror attack By Bay nard Woods

I

n Charlottesville, when it seemed like the Nazis had been driven from town, shortly before the terrorist attack that killed Heather Heyer, a group of antiracist protesters gathered in a small park and set fire to several Confederate flags and a big green-white-and-black flag of Kekistan. I stood in the dirt beneath a tree and watched the two flags wither and curl beneath their own combustion on the dark ground. One was born of the slaveholder insurrection against the U.S. and the other from what some in the messageboard subculture call the “great meme war of 2016.” Both, somehow, represent the Trump coalition. Kekistan grew out of the Pepe the Frog meme. Pepe became popular after a strip by his creator, Matt Furie, depicted him peeing with his pants all the way down because “feels good, man.” The videogamers, “men’s rights” activists, hackers, trolls and shitposters who populate sites like 4Chan started embracing the Pepe the Frog meme to symbolize, as Dale Beran explained in a viral Medium post, “embracing your loserdom, owning it.” Soon, Pepe, who suddenly embodied the troll ethos, also found an analogue in politics. As Beran put it: “Trump, the loser, the outsider, the hot mess, the pathetic joke, embodies this duality. Trump represents both the alpha and the beta.” In May, Furie drew a strip showing Pepe lying dead in a casket. But his creation had by then already escaped him. At the same time as the far-right elements on message boards began to adopt Pepe, they also began using the letters KEK instead of LOL to indicate online laughter. Then, when they noticed that there was an Egyptian god named Kek, who was depicted as a frog-headed man, these guys – and they are decidedly guys – had a mythology and a god. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s entry on the alt-right’s association with the deity, “Kek was portrayed as a bringer of chaos and darkness, which happened to fit perfectly with the altright’s self-image as being primarily

devoted to destroying the existing world order.” To go along with their new half-ironic religion, they created a purely digital (and imaginary) country called Kekistan. After the election, they made Trump their Emperor God. And they started getting flags made. Now, partly because his image has become associated with the likes of the Nazis at Charlottesville, Furie has sent cease-and-desist notices to a number of alt-right figures such as Richard Spencer, Mike Cernovich and “Baked Alaska.” Baked Alaska, who claims to have been almost blinded by Antifa activists in Charlottesville, tweeted: “Hillary Clinton’s lawyers have been summoned to sue me, [Cernovich], & others over a cartoon frog meme. Bad idea to start this battle.” Others have called for a new meme war attacking Furie for challenging their use of his creation. But the two flags, burning beside each other, stuck in my mind – so the next time I saw some of them, at the Mother of All Rallies on the National Mall earlier this month (see “Down with the clown,” Sept. 20), I asked them about the association of their flag with that of the Nazis in Charlottesville. One guy carrying a flag and wearing a green robe did a bunch of interviews (though he had nothing to say) before scampering off behind an Eric Trumplooking Proud Boy like a cartoon puppy. There was another, more practical Kekistani standing around with a group of militia members – his allegiance to his online community was expressed in a T-shirt with a green fist rising up above the word “Kekistan.” Below, it said something about the “normie occupation,” a phrase used to indicate the oppression of the nerd by normal people. He was wearing a fur hat with a Go-Pro camera mounted on its front. A walkietalkie and a megaphone hung from his backpack straps. With his long-beard, it half-looked like he was cosplaying Alexander Dugin, the bearded Russian theorist sometimes called “Putin’s Rasputin.”

When I asked him why he’s out repping Kekistan, he rather politely replied, “How OK with swearing are you?” “Totally fine,” I say. “I am an ethnic shitposter,” he says. “Which is, essentially, I’m an asshole for the sake of being an asshole.” He says his name is Diogenes, because Diogenes the Cynic was the first real troll. “So, like, at Charlottesville I saw people burning a Kekistan flag as well as like a Confederate flag and stuff and if a shitposter is just being an asshole to be an asshole, is that cool?” I ask. “Is that part of being an asshole, or does that bother you?” “Oh, people have the freedom to do whatever they want so long as they’re the ones who bought it and own it themselves,” Diogenes says. “If it’s their property –” “I just mean to have your thing associated with other things,” I interrupt. “Being associated with what happened in Charlottesville. Is that weird?” “No,” he says. “People are going to freely associate with whatever they want. I mean, it’s unfortunate that they had to orlandoweekly.com

bring an insane racism to it, but there are those people. … Some of them do it just to be an asshole and they think that they’re edgy and it will hurt people’s feelings.” He pauses. “And it does,” he continues, almost admiringly. “It’s when they legitimately mean it that it becomes an issue and it’s when they’re trying to make it [racism] law that it becomes an issue.” That really stunned me, but it shouldn’t have. For shitposters like Diogenes, it seems that the problem with the Nazis is that they aren’t ironic enough in their hatred. And it explains why they love Trump and the so-called “alt-light” figures like Cernovich who revel in trolling the media with half-ironic bigotry. They aren’t truly dedicated to hate. They just want to hurt people’s feelings. Like the President, the shitposters think they’re wised up but have ended up as “useful idiots,” using their digital skills to help normalize Nazis and also further active Russian measures to undermine our democracy. feedback@orlandoweekly.com

ALAN RATH, FROM VIRTUAL VIEWS Orlando Museum of Art, through Dec. 31

A

s the days grow shorter and the year seems to slip into a fugue state of sorts (especially this year), we look to find beauty and enlightenment and new perspectives to inspire and shake us up. This fall’s (and beyond) slate of visual arts exhibitions and happenings promises energizing jolts to the system. Orlando Museum of Art is happily delivering on the shock of the new with both the Baggage Claims exhibit – an international group show exploring themes of travel and immigration across all media – and Virtual Views: Digital Art from the Thoma Foundation, which surveys new work utilizing digital and LED technology. (Both run through Dec. 31.) Amy Galpin, curator of the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, is everywhere this fall, with an ambitious slate of shows at CFAM as well as shows curated at two other Orlando museums. At Orlando Science Center, she presents the group show Steady Observation (through Jan. 7, 2018), a freeform exploration of the throughlines of science and art in our lives featuring the likes of Trevor Paglen, Anna Cruz, Dina Mack and Andy Goldsworthy. And at the Mennello, Time & Thought brings together a fascinating collection of historic and contemporary American art on loan from CFAM. A number of exhibits focus on the work of innovative female artists as well in this particular arts season. In January of next year, the Mennello Museum features a

rare survey of the works of Abstract Expressionist painter and collage artist Grace Hartigan. In May, the Cornell fixes the spotlight firmly on the eye and lens of influential early 20th-century photographer Margaret Bourke-White. And the Maitland Arts Center features the works of two artists-in-residence Nikki Painter and Elisabeth Condon in the Women of the Research Studio exhibit in January and February. We’re always happy to see art in the library. To that end, we’re excited to see the Horror by Design collection of monster movie poster art by the likes of Saul Bass and Drew Struzan (through Oct. 31) and the more sobering The Lines That Join Us photo exhibit collecting the testimonials of those who have gotten tattoos to help them remember and honor those lost in the Pulse nightclub shooting (Oct. 2-Nov. 30). Adventurous art festivals are coming on strong this season, too. In October, Creative City Project’s Immerse 2017 promises to take over downtown Orlando with a variety of mixed media and performance pieces. Then Art in Odd Places returns in November, a performance art festival downtown with the intriguing but evocative theme of “Noise,” and promises challenges aplenty. We’re ready to leave the summer behind and soak in the new and unexpected.

rlando’s bartenders and mixologists swelter all summer in anticipation of cooler weather, which gives them the excuse to shake and stir heartier libations. Here are five fall cocktails we just can’t wait to try.

BITTER HARVEST The Forbidden Lounge at Morimoto Asia

morimotoasia.com Served in a rocks glass, this ginger-forward drink gets its bite from Flor de Cana rum, Courvoisier VSOP and Punt e Mes, garnished with lemon and mint. Beverage manager Eric Bandauski says the drink was born out of a brainstorming session. “It has a lot going on, but it starts with a short sweet note, then pretty quickly a rounded bitterness comes in that has hints of grapes, aged rum and ginger spice.”

THE HAY-RYED 1921 by Norman Van Aken

1921nva.com Between the Hudson Maple Cask rye, Osborne Pedro Ximenez sherry and whiskey-barrel bitters, we’re ready to button up our flannel and hop on. Chelsea Harkness, bar manager at 1921, says, “The woodsy potency of the rye is soothed by the deep, sweet, raisin-like sherry, while barrel-aged bitters teem with fall spice.”

HAY-RYED

APPLE SAUCE The Lounge at Urbain 40

urbain40.com Sweet, tart, smooth and totally evocative of the sounds you’ll hear coming from the jazz trio on stage. The drink mixes Fireball, Apple Pucker and pineapple juice, and for a little extra seasonality – a cinnamon-sugar rim.

THE CANNES ARTIST

DAISY ROOTS

DoveCote Brasserie

The Ravenous Pig

dovecoteorlando.com Last year’s popular Cider & Bourbon toddy will make its appearance later in the season and will remain on the menu through New Year’s, but the Cannes Artist features fall flavors to enjoy right this hot minute. Buffalo Trace bourbon is mixed with allspice dram, spiced mango, lime and pineapple. “The cocktail is a warming drink with fall flavors and a hint of tiki and Mediterranean nuance,” says bar manager Josh Hiller.

theravenouspig.com Bar manager Kristian Siriani wanted to create a frothy, spicy apple-brandy sour. “This cocktail is a balance of heat and fall spices,” he says. The drink gets its golden color from turmeric; other ingredients include aquavit, ginger-honey syrup, lemon, egg white, Pedro Ximenez sherry and Calvados. – Holly V. Kapherr

his fall’s classical music offerings are a diverse bounty of orchestral listening to suit all tastes. The events we are highlighting are the fall slates of a number of hardworking and creative arts organizations putting on classical and opera concerts, and one-off engagements from touring productions and performers. So on the one hand, you’ve got Susan Cahill, a young firebrand who’s worked with Terry Riley and Yoko Ono, and on the other, your parents’ favorite superstar conductor/violinist, the “King of Romance,” Andre Rieu. And you know what? Both sides win. AMF and Timucua Arts Foundation landed a big get with the announcement of Cahill in December. Says Timucua Arts director Chris Belt: “Susan Cahill is an astounding musician. The list of composers who have written for her includes John Adams, Terry Riley, Frederic Rzewski, Pauline Oliveros and Yoko Ono. We’re talking about the absolute upper echelon of contemporary composers dedicating works to her.” Other highlights include the return of the Women in Song series for a second year, with performers like Kaia Kater and Heather Masse. Meanwhile Orlando Philharmonic and Dr. Phillips Center go big with command performances from Yo-Yo Ma and Wynton Marsalis, respectively. For those who like their classical a little more on the cinematic side, O.Phil will pay tribute to the music of Star Wars and Harry Potter on separate nights, while the Dr. Phillips Center hosts La La Land: The Musical with live orchestral accompaniment. Opera Orlando puts on an ambitious production of La Bohème and gets in the holiday spirit with Amahl and the Night Visitors.

This year’s slate brings in more than 400 shorts and features from almost every conceivable genre, along with celebrity appearances (Richard Kind! Malcolm McDowell ... maybe!), parties, a music showcase, award ceremonies, filmmaker panels and seminars, and more. JewiSh FilM FeStival Nov. 4-6; Enzian Theater, enzian.org; $11-$75 The slate for the Central Florida Jewish Film Festival hasn’t been announced yet, but if previous years are any indication, expect representation from a variety of countries over the three-day festival. With the disturbing rise in the profile of white nationalism in this country in recent months, this year’s festival might have something important to say about the dangers of such rhetoric. – Thaddeus McCollum

MOVIES THERE’S A MONSTER MASH OF HORROR FLICKS ON SCREENS IN OCTOBER

B

esides sitting in a pumpkin patch waiting for you-know-who, there’s only one better way to pass the time lounging in the dark once October hits. We’re talking about taking in a horror flick, a time-honored tradition of the season going back to the heyday of Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff (if not before). And local film freaks on large and small scales alike are ready to frighten the holy bejeezus out of you this October with an eye-popping slate of film frights. Uncomfortable Brunch kicks off the season, getting in early and gory with 2016’s black-and-white shocker Eyes of My Mother on Oct. 1 (Will’s Pub). The mind boggles wondering what food they’ll serve to accompany this one. The Enzian is going all-in on the frights in October, as they turn all of their specialty programming into fright-fests. Popcorn in the Park goes all drive-in movie with the original Blob (Oct. 12), Music Mondays features the bonkers Phantom of the Paradise (Oct. 16), even the usually-innocent Book To Big Screen screens Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula (Oct. 21). And a slate of Midnight Movies are topped off by a lovingly restored version of Mario Bava’s atmospheric masterpiece Kill, Baby … Kill! (Oct 21) Meanwhile, the month’s slate of Cult Classics includes Poltergeist (Oct. 3), Cabin Fever (Oct. 10) and High Tension (Oct. 24). Enzian programmer Tim Anderson waxes enthusiastic about bringing in the blood-soaked High Tension: “High Tension is an early masterwork of the French

74

New Wave of Horror that arrived in the U.S. in the early 2000s … films that looked to capture the gritty grindhouse stylings of the ’70s New American Cinema. On the surface it would seem to be a basic stalk-and-slash film, but High Tension belies those simple motifs. If you know nothing of High Tension, leave it that way and come to the film with no preconceptions.” Even the more-arty More Q Than A film series organizers (Gallery at Avalon Island) are getting into the act on Oct. 25 with a screening of the strangely beautiful surrealist Japanese horror-romp House (1977). Unfortunately, they’ll be up against some stiff competition from the MST3K alums’ Rifftrax and a simulcast of their 2013 takedown of the seminal zombie film Night of the Living Dead (various locations). On the big night, if you’ve been aged out of trick-or-treating, you’ve got the choice of attending a screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Garden Theatre in Winter Park, with the usual dressing-up and extracurricular activities or you can go all in on serious heebie-jeebies and catch a showing of the original Nightmare on Elm Street at the Enzian. Either way, stay sick, knif.

Disney’s

Imagineers

and

Universal’s Creative team usually get all the credit for blockbuster rides like Soarin’ or Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, but neither of those attractions would exist without Dynamic Attractions, one of the most acclaimed independent design/build companies in the amusement industry. A decade ago, CEO Guy Nelson leveraged his stake in steel fabricator Empire Industries to acquire Dynamic Attractions and its sibling Dynamic Structures; today, his companies are creating some of the most exciting attractions around the world. Nelson recently spoke with me ahead of Dynamic’s anticipated appearance at November’s IAAPA trade show about his “bobbing and weaving” career path, upcoming Orlando rides his company is rumored to be behind, and more, like:

TransiTioning from sTeel fabricaTion To The aTTracTions business

At the time when I bought the company, they’d just been awarded a very large contract for Universal’s first iteration of Harry Potter in Orlando. That had just been landed before I bought the company. We also had a ski jump we were building for the Olympics in Vancouver, and Dynamic Structures was building a monorail for Disney in California, so we had an eclectic mix of backlog when I bought the company in 2007. Then as time progressed I started to like what I was seeing in the attraction ride system business, and started to shift my focus more towards that. It was definitely not a lifelong dream to get into [attractions]. In fact, when I bought Dynamic Structures, I bought it because it was a competitor in the steel fabrication business. I bought it to take a competitor out of the market. I didn’t buy it because they had the Harry Potter

A talk with Guy Nelson of Dynamic Attractions before his appearance at November’s IAAPA trade show

ride and I was so insightful that I could see what was coming down the pike 10 years down the road. At the time I was frankly uncertain about that side of the business, because I knew nothing about it. Fortunately the management group convinced me that they knew something about it.

Dynamic’s flying TheaTers vs. Disney’s soarin’

We feel like we’re probably the most knowledgeable people on flying theaters in the world. We built all of Disney’s flying theaters, and we developed our own patented flying theater as well. Everybody looks at Soarin’ and tries to knock it off. There’s simulator companies that turn their simulators on their end to make it into a flying theater, shaking and rattling and rolling. We like to think that we understand exactly why Soarin’s been so successful on the guest experience side, and we’ve replicated that in a very unique, patented way. And we have not made Disney mad at us for that. They would be mad if I had knocked it off, but we would never do that. We have a couple of competitors that have a pretty good flying theater, but we like to think ours is very good. It’s not just the ride system itself that’s important, it’s the whole package. We have seen too many people not optimize the guest experience by adding terrible movies. Even if we have a spectacular

system, if they don’t understand the purpose of the flying theater and how to create the same longevity to the popularity of the ride system, then they are missing the point. That’s how and why we backed into doing it ourselves, because we were tired of other people screwing it up.

builDing The successor To harry PoTTer anD The forbiDDen Journey’s riDe sysTem

The contract was awarded in 2016 for a second generation Robocoaster. I don’t think we’ve gone on record yet saying what that is or where that is, but it will be a 2018 opening. Again, we don’t want to make Universal mad at us, so this is a totally different system, but the same sort of approach. This particular installation has different constraints and parameters: lower throughput, and intermittent dispatch … it’s a different level of complexity on the controls and programming side. But that’s what we do – we have a lot of engineers for a reason. These are the most complicated ride systems in the world, and we’ve got a bunch of them on the go.

oPening Dynamic’s orlanDo Design cenTer

We started with 40,000 square feet to demonstrate our work to our customers. Our customers tend to be either coming to Orlando or in Orlando, so it’s a logical place for us to set up operations as opposed to just Vancouver. We’ve gone from 40,000 square feet to 80,000 square feet down there, and it’s grown from a few people to over 25 now. We largely make our designs and build our ride systems in Vancouver, but increasingly we’re doing more and more of our creative work in Orlando. skubersky@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

There’s better straight-up Mexican food to be had in this city, though Mesa21’s lakeside view and patio seating is unparalleled. No dishes are particularly noteworthy; most items fall in the “meh” category. A full cocktail bar – and that view – draws the happy hour crowd in. Open daily. 1414 N. Orange Ave., 407-930-8000; $$$

oh my Gyro!

Family-run eatery in Longwood follows in the cart tracks of NYC’s Halal Guys offering platters of yellow turmeric-tinged rice with chicken, gyro, and falafel along with pita bits, salad, and a drizzle of requisite white sauce (an infernal red sauce is also offered on the side). One thing OMG! has that its halal cart brethren don’t: A selection of below-the-fold Indian fare. Closed Sundays. 1150 W. State Road 434, Longwood, 407-960-4496; $

Zeytin turkish Cuisine

It’s a hit and miss affair at this Turkish resto situated in the shabbier sector of College Park, but there are dishes that make it worth the visit. Doughy lavash with a racy ezme salad, for one, and a stellar pide (flatbread) stuffed with plush roasted beef. Kebabs like the chicken and lamb shish are worth a look, but prices force you to think twice. Pass on the moussaka. End with kunefe and a demitasse of Turkish coffee. 4439 Edgewater Drive, 407-988-3330; $$$

nine spiCes hotpot

At this MetroWest hotpot house, a conveyor belt transports ingredients from table to table for all-you-can-eaters. There are six soup bases to choose from (the spicy veers toward the infernal end of the pepper spectrum), a dozen or so sauces and condiments, and more than 50 pot-dunking meats and veggies. Fine dining it’s not, but if you haven’t eaten for a day or so, this is just the place for you. Open daily. 5320 S. Kirkman Road, 407-704-1033; $$

the waterfront

The fare coming out of the kitchen of this lakeside bar/restaurant isn’t just a notch above its Julie’s Waterfront days, but downright impressive. Korean pork belly with house kimchi, sesame-crusted ahi tuna with seaweed salad, and tuna poké bring an undeniable Asian bent to the menu, but fish camp classics like blackened catfish and stellar fish (haddock) and chips are worth consideration.

Local notables James and Julie Petrakis of the RavPig are joined by James’ brother Brian to bring the flavor of proper Southern ’cue to the international masses at Disney Springs.

Cask & Larder brews, as well as a bourbon bar stocked with Pappy Van Winkle, will properly whet the whistle. Disney Springs, 1536 Buena Vista Drive, 407-938-7444; $$

The Pie offers vivid, sensual, Roman-style pizza al taglio (by the slice) to the fortunate denizens of College Park, so if you’re in the area, pop by for a squarish slab of potato pie (our fave), or a protein-packed “meat lover” with pepperoni, sausage, meatball, mortadella and prosciutto.

Soul and fire Athens cult rockers Five Eight return to Orlando to say goodbye to a friend By MATTheW MOyeR

a

thens, Georgia, indie heroes Five Eight are a band who discovered that there’s more freedom in the underground, and have stuck it out there since the early ’90s, beloved of those with discerning ears. One of those fans was the much-missed local writer and activist Billy Manes, who championed them ceaselessly. This Friday, Five Eight make an Orlando comeback to play a tribute show to Manes, and Five Eight singerguitarist Mike Mantione talked to us about Manes, their new music, and the importance of disregarding the need for work/ life balance. Orlando Weekly: There’s some significance to this Orlando show. Mike Mantione: Billy was a huge fan of

the band and I had gotten to know him personally over the years. He had sent me a manuscript of something he was working on and it was pretty intense. … We never got the chance to hook up after that. I know that a person like that, when they go in full stride, it’s always a shock – someone who had so much to give and who really goes beyond activism. Activism implies something, and he was beyond that. And I thought he was a really important person and a beautiful person too.

When we would play at Will’s Pub … we’re not a big band. We’re an indie cult band. And he would come up and give me a killer bear hug and he was just so super supportive of what I was doing. The Five Eight thing is a confessional thing, it’s not about typical rock & roll stuff, it’s about mental health and recovery through musical transformation and I think he got that. So we were kind of brothers in that sense.

Jude, is awesome. It’s me and Sean cowriting every song. This album is about lost causes. Most of the folks that are written about, there’re some pretty horrendous stories behind them. For some reason, to me though, it’s very uplifting. I don’t know why. I think it’s a very positive record. In the face of trauma and death and murder and suicide it seems that St. Jude looms large … and once again through the transformative power of music, what would be not a great day for a real estate agent turns into a stunning guitar solo. It’s difficult to pigeonhole our band because we don’t settle on a genre of music. … I think about the Replacements a lot. The Replacements and Five Eight always had a lot in common. We would move from punk rock to country music to anthems and do all of them equally badly!

SFS SOUTHERN BELLE BALL, WILL’S PUB COMPLEX, SEPT. 17

Of all Southern Fried Sunday’s themed events, the recent inaugural Southern Belle Ball spotlighting the ladies of Central Florida roots music was one of its most distinctive. And the food drive aspect for worthy local charity Second Harvest Food Bank was particularly timely considering the storm recovery mode that our community is currently in. The takeover of the Will’s Pub complex featured almost a dozen area acts including the usual notables like Kaleigh Baker, Sarah Purser and Beth McKee’s Swamp Sistas Songwriter Circle. But other standouts included Sleepy Giants – a new folk-pop duo spinoff of the UkeA-Ladies – and Maple Sparrow – the Amy Robbins vehicle whose roots-minded, brass-filled rock & roll was given a good, solid honky-tonk edge by go-to pedal steel player Tommy Cooper. But the musical storyline of the night was the storied Wynn family. Of special intrigue was Whyte Tygers, the new band of Heather Lee and Jordan Wynn. A decorated act themselves, the wife-husband team have been quiet for years raising a young family out in the country. Now, Whyte Tygers is the new engine for the couple’s material that Jordan tells me has

Family – be it the actual, musical or community kind – is precisely what Southern Fried Sunday is all about. The Southern Belle Ball could become an essential Orlando institution. the potential to blossom into a group entity of its own. It’s a full five-member deal that, live, plays with less gospel delicacy and more soul, groove and size. And for a unit that’s barely a thing yet, they were a very solid ensemble and probably the most concentrated act I saw all night. More than anything, though, it was a wonder to hear the power and grace of Heather’s voice live again. Though it’s been a long time since she’s been able to play regularly, her soul still beams with the true fire and light of music. And it showed on stage, where she performed like a boss. The spark also reflected in guitarist Jordan, making for a collective performance that belied the fact that they’ve been off the circuit for years. They even sounded more salient and relevant than most of their current, younger peers in the area. If they could become more of a presence, these certified veterans would once again give the scene some fresh infusion. Also featured was Hannah Harber, yet another, newer addition to the Wynn clan via marriage to local Southern-rock

pillar Thomas Wynn. She, too, went maximum onstage with the Lionhearts, her own band of pros that included her husband on drums, local guitar legend Brian Chodorcoff, and lush organs. And because the opportunity was so ripe, Harber brought Heather and Jordan onstage at one point to make it a family blowout. There’s no more perfect note with which to sum up the night because family – be it the actual, musical or community kind – is precisely what Southern Fried Sunday is all about. And the Southern Belle Ball is an event that, if allowed to become a tradition, could become an essential Orlando institution.

DEAF POETS AND THE WILDTONES, 64 NORTH, SEPT. 18

Blowing into town like a tropical storm in a bottle to kick off a tour of the Eastern U.S. and Canada, Miami duo Deaf Poets hit big despite being a small band. They stand tall in the proud two-piece band tradition but operate on the whopping maximum end of the spectrum. With a raw attack that packs big lust and intent, they crank hard like a garage-built Zeppelin. Even for a band twice their size, this would be some pretty huge rock & roll. The drum throne for local opener the Wildtones has lately become a revolving door. Current fill-in and local polymath Simon Palombi (of the Woolly Bushmen), however, provides some consistency, stability and snap that they never quite had before but with enough understanding of their primal soul to not buff the personality out of it. baolehuu@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Time as Landscape: Inquiries of Art and Science

ART

Someone once said that writing about music is like dancing about architecture – meaning, we guess, that it’s mostly impossible and maybe pointless. Clearly we enjoy a challenge, as we expend thousands of words per week writing about music, food, art, and so on, but sometimes the maxim proves true. For instance, the massive exhibition taking over the Cornell Fine Arts Museum for its fall 2017 season. The connecting principle between all the work in this group show is time: “as scientific fact, as relative experience, as aesthetic archive.” We’ve been trying to wrap our heads around that, but talking about Time as Landscape feels like knitting about football or maybe trying to eat soup over the telephone. We can only recommend you go and experience it in person – we’ll be there, trying to crochet the weather. – Jessica Bryce Young

Celebrate creativity and community at Orlando’s biggest annual art event Saturday at Loch Haven Park. Catch up with over 150 local artists who display, create and sell interactive pieces on-site, some of which will be entered into the city’s largest live-art competition. The all-day event also includes more than 20 food trucks from Tasty Takeover, a kids zone with special programming and activities, and, of course, happy hour. In the evening, the park transitions to Artlando After Dark as the performing arts stage shifts from kid-friendly programming to performances from Opera Orlando, Phantasmagoria and Flamenco del Sol, to name a few. Activities are paced evenly throughout the day, so you’ll never feel like you’re missing out, no matter what time you arrive. – Hind Berji 11 a.m.-11 p.m. | Loch Haven Park, 777 E.

Café Tacvba MUSIC

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK 92

Widely considered to be one of the most important and adventurous rock bands to emerge from Mexico, Café Tacvba have been fearlessly stretching the boundaries of rock & roll since the early ’90s. From raw, folk-punk beginnings, the band has since restlessly experimented with genres as diverse as hip-hop, tejano and electronic music. They’ve won Latin Grammys and played Coachella, and the irony of Café Tacvba doing a triumphant U.S. tour as Trump continues blathering about a border wall with Mexico and “bad hombres” surely won’t be lost on attendees of their show. – Matthew Moyer 8 p.m. | House of Blues, 1490 Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista | 407-934-2583 | hob.com/orlando | $39-$75

John Mulaney COMEDY

Baby-faced comic John Mulaney first got our attention as a writer on Saturday Night Live, that bastion of weekly satire that no one admits to liking until it’s the only thing calling out the emperor for having no clothes. But when he tried to make the jump to a prime-time sitcom, Mulaney, in 2013, neither audiences nor critics were kind. Returning to stand-up with a Netflix special titled The Comeback Kid was prescient, however, as the young comic was able to show that he still had plenty of untapped talent. And a Broadway show with Nick Kroll, Oh, Hello, in which the two reprised the cantankerous old men they premiered on Kroll Show, was a delightfully stupid hit. Mulaney returns to Orlando this week with plenty of new material and a voice credit on new Netflix animated show Big Mouth, which premiered last week. Don’t call it a comeback; he never left. – Thaddeus McCollum 7 & 9 p.m. | Hard Rock Live, 6050 Universal Blvd. | 407-351-5483 | hardrock.com/orlando | $35-$45

Mark Kozelek MUSIC

Indie rock has few personalities on the provocation level of Mark Kozelek, a man who makes even artistically sympathetic intellectuals clutch pearls like none other. Despite his prickly reputation, however, the Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon frontman delivered an extraordinarily intimate and generous performance here in this very theater back in 2015. His color was on display, but only with enough salt to make it interesting and authentic. (To want him any other way is to not fully understand the man.) It was an event of true engagement, with enough

vulnerability to debunk much of the cloud surrounding him. He was confessional, human and wholly in the moment – for almost three hours. Of course, all this up-close revelation can instantly evaporate with the gale force combo of a stiff sensibility and a big mouth. But this is the ideal venue for what Kozelek does, and he knows and appreciates it. When the conditions are as right as they are here, this is the kind of performance not to be missed. Unless you’re in the War on Drugs. – Bao Le-Huu 6:30 p.m. | Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S.

Venom Inc.

PHOTO BY LUCA VENTER

Sunday, Oct. 1

MUSIC

Venom (pre-Inc.) burst out of the U.K. metal scene in 1981 with a raw, noisy sound that owed as much to punk as it did to Judas Priest, and then upped the ante with overt Satanic imagery, festooning baphomets over everything in sight. Venom delivered beyond mere shock, though, with songs like “Black Metal” and “In League With Satan” still sounding fresh and culty decades later. Fast-forward through the intervening years and Venom has split into two. Mercurial frontman Cronos fronts a “Venom,” but the rest of the classic trio – guitarist-songwriter Mantas and drummer Abaddon – reconvened a couple of years ago as Venom Inc. with the addition of bassistvocalist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan, a dynamo of a frontman who fronted the band during a brief spell in the ’90s. And now the Inc’ers are on a neverending tour – China, Japan, South America – playing any club that dares book them. Or to sum things up concisely: This is the Venom that actually likes to play classic Venom songs. – MM with Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust | 7 p.m. | The Haven, 6700 Aloma Ave., Winter Park | thehavenrocks.com | $22-$99

Sound of Ceres MUSIC

Listen to “Gemini Scenic” from Sound of Ceres’ upcoming album, The Twin, and the echoedout, ghostly vocals of Karen Hover will conjure images from Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris. A symbiotic relationship of sci-fi and fantasy, Sound of Ceres’ live performances of The Twin promise an autumnal blessing with hand-crafted anachronistic costumes, magical lighting whipped up with mirrors and lasers, and vocals that echo our future’s past. Exhibiting adroit DIY behaviors, members of the band have devised an ocular and aural production synthesized out of 20thcentury German literature, pulpy short stories, vintage and modern detritus, and the imaginative frontier to deliver an immersive encounter that explores the strangest possibilities of the human existence. – Nicolette Shurba with Breathers | 8 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $8-$10

Black Sabbath: The End of the End FIlM

At a 2013 press conference announcing the release of their swan-song recording, 13, the members of Black sabbath were asked to identify the biggest challenge they had faced in making the album. Guitarist tony Iommi, who was at the time undergoing treatment for lymphoma, broke into an ear-to-ear grin and replied, “Not dying.” Four years later, Iommi is in remission but sabbath is defunct, laid to rest after a farewell show last February in the group’s hometown of Birmingham, england. Concert flick The End of the End, which documents that final gig, is being sent to theaters around the globe for one night only, putting audiences in the VIp seats for the last airing of metal classics like “paranoid,” “Iron Man” and “War pigs” – and taking them backstage for behind-the-scenes banter that will hopefully hew to the same trademark goodnatured ghoulishness that even the specter of death couldn’t slap out of Iommi’s mouth. – Steve Schneider 9:30 p.m. | enzian theater, 1300 s.

My teenage daughter just came out to us as gay. We told her we love her and support her. As a heterosexual, cisgender mother, how do I make sure she gets good advice about sex? I don’t want her learning from other kids or porn. Do you know of any good, sex-positive advice books for lesbian teens? My Inspiring Daughter Deserves Lesbian Education “I wish every parent felt this way about their child’s sexual development, regardless of the child’s gender identity or sexual orientation,” says Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape. “All young people – girls especially – need open, honest discussions about sexual ethics, including talking about pleasure, respect, decision-making and reciprocity, or we are leaving them at the mercy of the messages they get from both the mainstream and ‘adult’ entertainment industries.”. Orenstein’s book – required reading for parents of girls and boys – drives home the need for comprehensive sex-education programs emphasizing the giving and receiving of pleasure. In the absence of sex-ed programs that empower girls to see themselves not just as instruments of another’s pleasure but as autonomous individuals with a right to experience sexual pleasure – with a partner or on their own – girls wind up having a lot of consensual but crappy sex. That said, MIDDLE, one big takeaway from Orenstein’s research should come as a comfort to you: Bi and lesbian girls enjoy an advantage over their heterosexual peers. “In some ways, MIDDLE can feel more confident about her daughter as a gay girl,” Orenstein says. “Lesbian and bisexual girls I spoke to for Girls & Sex would talk about feeling liberated to go ‘off the script’ – by which they meant the script that leads lockstep to intercourse – and create encounters that truly worked for them. I ended up feeling that hetero girls – and boys, too – could learn a lot from their gay and bisexual female peers. And I don’t mean by watching otherwise straight girls make out on the dance floor for the benefit of guys.” Since gay and bisexual girls can’t default to PIV intercourse, and since there’s not a boy in the room whose needs/dick/ego they’ve been socialized to prioritize, queer girls have more egalitarian and, not coincidentally, more satisfying sexual encounters. “Young women are more likely to measure their own satisfaction by the yardstick of their partner’s pleasure,” Orenstein says. “So heterosexual girls will say things such as, ‘If he’s sexually satisfied, then I’m sexually satisfied.’ Men, by contrast, are more likely to measure satisfaction by their own orgasm. But the investment girls express in their partner’s pleasure remains true regardless of that person’s gender. So the orgasm gap

we see among heterosexuals (75 percent of men report they come regularly in sexual encounters versus 29 percent of women) disappears in same-sex encounters. Young women with same-sex partners climax at the same rate as heterosexual men.” My husband and I are currently separated on a trial basis. He took all our condoms when he moved out, and I want to ask him if he plans on having sex with other women. I don’t have any intention of sleeping with other people while separated, but I think he may be interested in doing so, in part since we have been sexually active only with each other and he is trying to “find himself.” If either of us were to have extramarital sex without the consent of the other, I would consider that cheating. We’ve also been having sex with each other throughout our separation. But my husband refuses to discuss this aspect of our separation. He will discuss only co-parenting or financial issues. I would be OK with him having casual sex but not a romantic sexual relationship. Wondering If Fidelity Enforceable Taking the condoms + refusing to discuss the sexual terms of your separation = your husband is almost certainly fucking other women. He probably figures it’ll be easier to get your forgiveness after the fact than to get your permission in advance – and if you don’t get back together, WIFE, he won’t even have to ask for forgiveness. If your husband refuses to have a dialogue about the sexual aspect of your separation, then you’ll have to make him listen to a monologue. Tell him you assume he’s having sex with other people and, if that’s not the case, he’ll have to use his words to persuade you otherwise. If he sits there in silence, or his words are unpersuasive, tell him you now feel free to have sex with other people, too. And while you can ask him not to enter into a romantic sexual relationship with anyone else, WIFE, you ultimately can’t control how he feels about who he’s fucking while he’s out there finding himself. If you aren’t comfortable fucking your husband while he’s fucking other women – and he almost certainly is fucking other women – let him know that and cut him off.

on the couch – but still no sex. Is demisexuality real? Should I keep pursuing her? Is She Interested Totally Or Not? Demisexuals are real people who “do not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional bond,” according to the definition at asexuality.org. We used to call people who needed to feel a strong emotional bond before wanting to fuck someone people who, you know, needed to feel a strong emotional bond before wanting to fuck someone. But a seven-syllable, clinicalsounding term that prospective partners need to google is obviously far superior to a short, explanatory sentence that doesn’t require internet access to understand. You’ve shown respect for this woman’s sexual orientation, ISITON, now it’s her turn to show some respect for yours. I don’t mean by putting out if she’s not ready or not interested, but by offering you some clarity about when or whether she’ll ever be interested. You’re seeking a romantic relationship that includes sex – which is not unreasonable – and you’ve demonstrated a willingness to make an emotional investment before a relationship becomes sexual. If she doesn’t see you as a prospective romantic and sexual partner, she should tell you that. If this relationship isn’t on track to become sexual, tell her you’re open to being friends – truly intimate friends – but you’ll have to direct your romantic attentions (and more of your time) elsewhere.

On the Lovecast, comedian Amy Miller. Listen up at savagelovecast.com. mail@savagelove.net ITMFA.org

I’m a 32-year-old straight man. Back in April, I met this girl. She seemed interested, but before we went out, she told me that she is a demisexual. (I had to google it.) After a few dates, she had me over to her place, we watched a movie and started making out. But when I started to put my hand between her legs, she calmly said, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.” No problem, I told her, I wasn’t trying to rush her. Fast-forward a couple months. We’re still going on dates, we hug and kiss, we hold hands, we cuddle
