More on the Non-Catholic Pope

Michael 1075 baxter st. (@ karma)

Well, as it turns out, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;non-Catholic Popeâ&#x20AC;? error in the Oct. 16, 1978 Athens Banner-Herald really was just in a photo cutline and not in a big headline, and it referred to the cardinal who was elected Pope. This copy, supplied by former reference librarian Theresa Flynn, provides the evidence. Why do we all remember it as a giant headline? Ms. Flynn has a good answer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everyone remembers it as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a 90-point headlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because the error was that large, if not the typeface.â&#x20AC;? The Pope reminiscence reminded former Flagpole Managing Editor Robin Littlefield, now a Nashville lawyer who also worked in pasteup at the Banner-Herald, of a B-H story about citizens lining up for shots in which an â&#x20AC;&#x153;iâ&#x20AC;? got substituted for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;o.â&#x20AC;? I also remember a B-H wedding writeup in which the bride left for the wedding trip wearing a three-piece suit, except that, well, you know, that old â&#x20AC;&#x153;hâ&#x20AC;? took the place of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;u.â&#x20AC;? I was told at the time that one was intentional, by a disgruntled pasteup person, for indeed the pages were actually put together by human hands at that point in our typographical history. Truth to tell, nobody in the newspaper business can gloat over anybody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s error, because we are all prone to making them, and the suit may hit the fan in our pages next time.

More on the Non-Persian Poet Coleman Barks, whose grizzled mug graced Flagpoleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover two weeks ago, will read from his work in the University of Georgia Chapel on Thursday, Apr. 4, beginning at 7 p.m. His appearance is co-sponsored by The Georgia Review, UGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterly journal of arts and letters, and by the University of Georgia Press, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary and has recently released Barksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; newest poetry collection, Hummingbird Sleepâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which will be available for purchase at the event, along with his earlier UGA Press volume, Winter Sky: New and Selected Poems, 1968â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2008. Barks, who is a very accessible and original poet in his own right, is known worldwide for his extensive work interpreting the 13th-century Sufi poet Jalal al-Din Rumi for modern audiences. The Big Red Book (HarperOne, 2010) is the latest of a dozen volumes that also include The Essential Rumi, The Soul of Rumi, and Rumi: The Book of Love. Recently, Coleman has returned to concentrating on his own writing, and he is known for what The Georgia Review calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;his melodic and powerful reading style, as well as for the sense of humor he interlaces with his incantatory and often spiritually charged poems.â&#x20AC;?

The More Things Change: We recently happened across our Dec. 7, 1994 issue, which included an item by Editor Pete McCommons urging Normaltown, Boulevard and Buena Vista residents to fight medical-related development along Prince Avenue. It just goes to show that we’ve been talking in circles— gentrification related to the new UGA Health Sciences Campus was one of the main issues in the recent Buena Vista Historic District debate. Speaking of Buena Vista, Mayor Nancy Denson allowed the historic district to take effect last week, but without her signature. She called the odds of her vetoing it “very insignificant,” but she was “still uncomfortable with the whole process.” School Secrecy: The ACC Commission signed off on a $40 million bond issue last week for Clarke County School District ELOST-funded construction projects. It was a mere formality that was already approved by voters and the school board, and the district got a great interest rate. But as James Garland told commissioners, CCSD only gave 24 hours notice for the called school board meeting to approve the bonds, board members didn’t see the numbers until just before they were asked to vote, and some of them clearly didn’t understand what they were voting on. The district followed the law, ACC Attorney Bill Berryman told commissioners. He also noted that brokers want to move fast to lock in favorable interest rates. But still, the public needs time to look at this stuff. It’s our money. The commission unanimously approved the bond package with Classic City High School principal Kelly Girtz abstaining. In the Hoop: A few weeks ago, Flagpole started Culture Briefs, a new blog dedicated to bringing you the latest news on art, film, theater and literature. Music editor Gabe Vodicka and I had a better idea—we commandeered it to talk about the NCAA Tournament. Check it out, fellow basketball junkies. Correction: Last week’s City Dope incorrectly stated the amount of money Jared Bailey requested from the Athens Downtown Development Authority for AthHalf. It was $10,000. Blake Aued

How â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Historicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Is Ethics Legislation? reform packageâ&#x20AC;? the state had ever seen. This bill was needed to clean up the mess left by the former House speaker, Glenn Richardson, who had been in charge when the last ethics measure was passed. Richardson, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember, was encouraged by his colleagues to resign immediately after his former wife told a TV interviewer that Richardson had had an affair with a female lobbyist. Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor, Speaker Ralston, helped write the 2010 ethics bill and urged the House to pass what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the more important propositionsâ&#x20AC;? of the session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to respond to some problems we had in a very forceful way. This bill does that,â&#x20AC;? Ralston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to change some of the ways we did business in this House, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done that. This bill gets it right. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show the people of Georgia we heard from you and we can deal with our own issues here.â&#x20AC;? Oddly enough, Ralstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get it right,â&#x20AC;? either. As the media reported on numerous occasions over the next two years, lobbyists continued to spend heavily in their efforts to persuade legislators to pass whatever the lobbyists requestedâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;which our lawmakers were only too happy to do. This distressing practice became so widely known that the voters finally said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enough!â&#x20AC;? In last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary elections, Republican and Democratic voters overwhelmingly endorsed straw vote issues calling for a restriction on lobbyist gifts to legislators. That brings us to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Assembly session and the latest attempt to pass a bill that really will fix the problem this time. At least, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you if the House and Senate are able to agree on a compromise ethics bill. If that bill passes, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll forgive me if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get very excited about it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard all this beforeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;many times. Tom Crawford

One of the major questions left in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative session is whether the House and Senate will agree on some kind of bill to limit what lobbyists can spend on lawmakers. There is a basic disagreement between the two chambers over how this issue should be handled. Speaker David Ralston and his House colleagues want to prohibit lobbyist gifts to individual legislators completely, although their bill has large loopholes that allow lobbyists to spend money on groups of lawmakers. The Senate wants to limit lobbyist gifts to $100, although that chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill would allow lobbyists to bestow an unlimited number of these gifts upon legislators. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to say whether the House version or the Senate version will prevail. If an ethics bill does manage to pass both chambers, the leadership will call it â&#x20AC;&#x153;historicâ&#x20AC;? and claim that the bill will change the culture at the capitol for a long time to come. If that sounds familiar, it should. We hear it every few years when legislators try to deal with the pesky issue of ethics. After Rep. Ken Poston succeeded in getting a bill passed in 1992 that required lobbyists to disclose how much they spend, Gov. Zell Miller said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is going to change the face of Georgia politics for many years to come.â&#x20AC;? In this case, â&#x20AC;&#x153;many yearsâ&#x20AC;? amounted to 10 years. When Sonny Perdue won the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race in 2002, one of his campaign promises was that he would work to strengthen the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ethics laws. In 2005, the new Republican majority in the Legislature adopted an ethics revision bill supported by Perdue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make history tonight by passing the strongest ethics reform package Georgia has ever seen,â&#x20AC;? Perdue told legislators shortly before they voted on the bill on the last night of the session. Five years later, lawmakers found themselves compelled to fix â&#x20AC;&#x153;the strongest ethics

Selling What You Sow

Fenwick Broyard, community agriculture program manager for the Athens Land Trust, looks on as Classic City Performance Learning Center students (from left) Erika Arrecis, Corey Turner and Marcus Peek work in a West Broad Street community garden.


thel Collins grew up on a farm. When her parents were eating traditional Southern breakfasts of sausage, ham, bacon and biscuits, she’d always go out to the garden, pick some greens and stir-fry them with onions for her morning meal. “That’s what I had a taste for at 12 years old,” she says. But Collins got away from healthy eating. Then, one day she fainted and was taken to the hospital, where doctors told her she had leukemia. “I was put on a special diet,” she says. “I got back to my vegetables. I’ve been doing better ever since.” An energetic 77-year-old with a quick laugh, Collins is a driving force behind a year-old community garden the Athens Land Trust started last March near a long-closed West Broad Street school, turning soil and pulling weeds several hours a day, six days a week. “I come out here to find out what organic was,” she says. “They gave me a key and put me in charge, put me on the payroll. “What can I say? It’s just that simple. They’re doing something good. I wanted to be part of it.”

The Exception to the Rule When the Athens Land Trust received a nearly $300,000 U.S. Department of Agriculture grant in 2010 to plant community gardens and teach gardening techniques to local residents, the primary goal was to provide inexpensive and healthy food for low-income families, who often live in neighborhoods known as food deserts where anything but junk food is hard to come by or prohibitively expensive, putting them at higher risk for diabetes and other obesity-related diseases. The nonprofit also started scouting for a farmers market location where gardeners could make a little pocket money



by selling the fruits of their labor, but local zoning laws don’t allow commercial agriculture in most areas. It wasn’t until 2012, when director Heather Benham approached the Clarke County School District about using the abandoned West Broad Street School, that the land trust could make it happen. Superintendent Phil Lanoue suggested not just a garden on the old school grounds, but a market as well, says Fenwick Broyard, community agriculture program manager for the land trust. “It was about a year, year-and-a-half negotiation with Athens-Clarke County before it was pointed out to us that several entities weren’t subject to zoning, one of them being the school district,” Broyard says. The school district isn’t subject to Athens-Clarke zoning laws, but in most of the county, it’s illegal to sell the food you grow. ACC commissioners recently started considering whether to allow residents to sell food from their gardens in stands or at farmers markets or allow them to band together to start larger community gardens on vacant lots. Fruit and vegetable gardens for personal consumption are defined as “horticulture” under ACC law and are allowed anywhere, according to Planning Director Brad Griffin. But raising animals for food—chickens, cows, goats, even bees—as well as plants grown for commercial purposes count as “agriculture.” Agriculture is only allowed in areas on the outskirts of the county zoned for agriculture, as well as—with limitations— industrial zones and single-family neighborhoods with acre lots or larger. It’s completely banned in denser intown neighborhoods where people are more likely to want to start community gardens, Griffin says. He adds, though, that officials have no interest in whether people sell a bounty crop of tomatoes to someone down the street. Athens Farmers Market manager Jan Kozak, an advocate for organic and locally grown food, calls the discussion a step in

the right direction. But he wants to see comprehensive reform of local, state and national agriculture policies—such as an end to corporate subsidies for large-scale corn, wheat and soybean producers—to encourage small-scale farming. “Ultimately, I think Athens and the rest of the state of Georgia have really poor policy when it comes to food production,” Kozak says. “It’s laughable that we have to go through this process to sell food from our own backyards.” Griffin, however, warned commissioners during a committee meeting last week that the issue is more complicated than it seems: Where is agriculture appropriate? What if neighbors objected? What if out-of-towners started farming lots in Athens? How would code enforcement officers know if the food sold at a streetside stand came from a backyard garden or Kroger? “I think the sales part of it complicates it very quickly,” Griffin says. “All of a sudden, you’ve got small mini-farms that are being set up and run out of neighborhoods.” Commissioners say they want to encourage community gardens, but they’re proceeding cautiously, asking ACC staff for more information on how other cities deal with the conundrum. “I love the concept, and I want to see more of these, but I want to make sure we look at all aspects before we [decide],” Commissioner Kathy Hoard says.

Demand Shoots Up for Local Food The issue crops up at a time when Athenians, and Americans in general, are taking a growing interest in locally produced food, rejecting the corn-syrup culture of pesticide-laden produce transported thousands of miles to grocery store aisles. Through the USDA grant, the Athens Land Trust has set up 13 community gardens at retirement homes, churches, apartment

Photographer Focuses on Fancy Fowl


nyone who has ever tried to take portrait photos of a toddler or a dog knows how hard it can be to get them to stand still—much less look at the camera. Now imagine trying to keep the attention of a chicken. Now imagine 250 chickens. Patience-trying? Feather-ruffling? Not for Tamara Staples. Staples makes her living shooting still-life photos for book covers and editorial compositions for magazines, but her passion is shooting portraits of chickens. “There are specific birds that have a personality, and you just don’t know which bird that’s going to be,” she says. “When you put it on set, that’s when you find when they [have] personality—just like people.” Staples will be in Athens from 6–7 p.m. on Thursday, Mar. 28 signing copies of her newly released book, The Magnificent Chicken: Portraits of the Fairest Fowl, at the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation next door to Avid Bookshop. Staples grew up in Atlanta, but spent a lot of time in Athens, and that’s where her fascination with our avian friends began. Her uncle, nowretired professor Ron Simpson, had chickens at his home in Athens. “He would just sit with me and chat,” she says. “After we were finished talking about my pathetic, 20-year-old problems, we would end up talking about chickens.” Her uncle took her to her first poultry show in Jefferson in the late 1980s, and from there she was mesmerized. “They were gorgeous; they were beautiful,” she says. “And there were these people who bred them, and this whole subculture.” If you’ve never been lucky enough to attend one of these shows, just know that the broilers we see in the cages packed onto the back of semi-trucks are a pale facsimile of what is on display at “fancy poultry” competitions. Chickens come in a whole range of patterns, shapes, sizes and colors, with more decorative plumage than a Sunday-hat shop. People who show chickens are a breed of their own as well, and there’s a camaraderie and kindness that Staples finds engaging. She started making portraits of the fancier birds at chicken shows across the Midwest in the early 1990s and released her first book,

The Fairest Fowl: Portraits of Championship Chickens, in 2001. Back then, that book was one of only a handful of chicken publications out there. A few people might have had a few hens in their backyards, but certainly no one intown anywhere. “Since that time people have gone crazy for chickens, and I’d like to think that my book may have had a hand in that,” she says. Staples decided to revisit her favorite subject to celebrate the public’s new interest in fancy chickens—stemming from the urban homesteading movement and changing municipal laws regarding backyard flocks—and because she’s better at what she does now. “My skills have improved; I’m better at what I do,” she says. “And I thought I could do a better job of showing the chickens in the way I wanted to show them.” For her latest book, Staples traveled in a van outfitted with a small version of an Olan Mills-style portrait studio in the back, complete with interchangeable backdrops and glamor lighting. She shot about 25 birds per show at 10 shows across the Northeast and in Ohio, trying to capture their distinct personalities. Birds are difficult to photograph. They scratch. They’re easily distracted, and they’re bound to poop on a set. Despite the challenges, Staples captured each bird looking straight into her camera—something she’s very proud of. There was never one breed or one type of bird that made good pictures, she says. “I don’t really have a favorite breed,” she adds. “It’s more of an individual bird’s presence or a pose than the type of bird.” She remembers one older bird, an Ameraucana, who stood tall and straight despite his messy feathers. “He was a little bit tattered,” she says. “But he posed in such a way that you can tell he’s a thoroughbred.” Staples, who is based in Brooklyn, is looking forward to her homecoming and to introducing Athens to her world of feathery models. “I wish everyone could know a chicken,” she says. “They’re great creatures. They really are.”

News from the Juice Box Set A pediatrician once told me that he looks for skinned, bruised knees not because there might be trouble in the home, but because it’s a sign the child is getting outside and playing. I agree with the sentiment, but for me, the signature look of a child who is getting fresh air is dirty fingernails. It’s a tricky thing to get your children interested in working in the garden. That said, if you leave them to their own devices in the backyard, they’ll inevitably dig something up, so you might as well focus that energy on something you can later eat or put in a vase. This is how I met 12-year-old Jorge Pascal. The seventh-grader takes agriculture classes at Hilsman Middle School, and while he’s cool with the chickens and the blueberry bushes, his eyes light up when he talks about tomatoes. Wait. Back up. Did I say chickens? Yup. Turns out Hilsman has two little “chicken tractors,” which are pens that you can move around a yard. One student will be testing the soil under the chickens as part of a project to see how the chickens may help it. The school also has two greenhouses, three dozen raised beds for gardens and an orchard with blueberries, muscadines, figs, plums, apples, pears and pecans. The idea, says Pam Stratton, agriculture teacher at the school, is to introduce

at schools isn’t a new thing, for a while it was a patchwork of infrastructure. “People would come in and out of the schools; gardens would pop up, get used, then disused,” Smith says. “So really, the angle we’re trying to work here is more sustainability—keeping a record of the garden, getting resources to them, trying to engage more people in trying to take care of the garden.” Students at the University of Georgia are a big part of this, too. Matt Tyler, a junior political science major from Atlanta, has been working to get more volunteers for the after-school gardening programs at Gaines School Road and Chase Street elementary schools. Tyler also helped secure a $2,900 grant from the Office of Sustainability at UGA for Junior Master Gardener lesson plans and other educational materials for the raised bed gardens there. For Tyler, the work is about educating kids about the natural world. And as he gets the word out about volunteering at the schools, he’s finding that there are a lot of students with a similar passion. “The main aspect is not only gardening but an academic portion, to make sure the students are getting more out of it,” he says. “We’re really trying to focus on volunteer development and a lot of meaning for the kids in the project.” Kristen Morales

“I wish everyone could know a chicken.”

Jorge Pascual, 12, repots tomato plant seedlings in the heated greenhouse at Hilsman Middle School. students to various aspects of agriculture, giving them practical applications for the math and science lessons they get in other classes. But I digress. Jorge says he keeps a garden at home, too, and is the proudest of his tomatoes. The class has been transplanting seedlings into larger pots, and over the summer teachers will keep the crops watered. Last year, Stratton says, she took extra produce to the homes of kids who worked extra hard in the garden during the school year. Don’t think Hilsman is unique. In fact, every single school in Clarke County has some kind of agricultural component going on, whether it’s raised-bed vegetable gardens at the elementary schools or greenhouses and orchards for the older kids. Thanks to a recent grant secured by the Athens Land Trust, which solidified the Community Garden Network, there is now continuity and communication between the various garden programs at the schools, says Stacy Smith, program assistant at Keep Athens Clarke County Beautiful and chair of the school garden committee for the Community Garden Network. While gardening

But what’s the benefit to getting your hands dirty if you’re a kid? Smith feels part of it is simply about getting outside and seeing where their food comes from. It also gives kids a chance to learn from something that’s not in a workbook. And from a school nutrition aspect, it’s important because “students who grow their own food are more likely to try new things,” Smith adds. Kids are fickle. One day they will be your best helper, and the next day they won’t want anything to do with you. But, they also can’t resist being outside. And you can start small—some flowers they water, or their own little plot in a vegetable garden, for example. Before you know it, you’ll have a scene like what Stratton described to me, when her classes started pulling out baby carrots and discovered their sweet flavor. “They were pulling out baby carrots and yelling, ‘Gucci!’” she says (apparently that’s the new “cool”). “To hear kids yell out Gucci for carrots, you know you’re doing something right.” Kristen Morales

Farm to Cart: For this issue of Flagpole, focusing as it does on local agriculture, I felt the time was right to return to Farm Cart, Athensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most famous food truck and the one that has tied itself most strongly to produce from the area. Originally set up on the patio of Farm 255, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since been cut loose, a move that makes it more accessible to the community in some ways (i.e., more places, more times) and less in others (no regular spot at lunch). Farm Cart does have a mostly reliable gig at Normal Bar (1365 Prince Ave.), on Thursday nights, when it sets up sometime between 5 and 5:45 p.m., depending on whether its technical side is on the fritz or the proprietor is by herself and stressed out as a result. Then again, if you are not starving and are happy to hang out on the back patio with a beverage, you can wait until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all ready to go. The menu at the moment seems to alternate between burgers and more experimental fare (an Indian night, a St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day minishepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pies, Japanese noodles), but the night I made it by was the basics. As ever, the cart serves a mix of veg and meat options, generally priced between $6 and $8. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normal Burger,â&#x20AC;? made with grass-fed Moonshine beef, cheddar, pickles, onion and â&#x20AC;&#x153;special sauce,â&#x20AC;? is a nice thing, a cut above the average burger. The pickles, in particular,

blustery pre-spring day, even with little hint of greenery poking up from the earth, there were still some options. Two pleasant fellows, one chattier than the other, were set up outside in the parking lot, retailing free-range meats and chemical-free if not certified-organic veggies. Big, pretty turnips rang up at $2 a pound and came with a family recipe that braised them in butter, sugar and white wine vinegar. Rutabaga beckoned as well. Dogwood Road Farm (the chatty fellow) also makes and retails its own line of pearbased preserves, due to a bumper crop of the fruit. Of the three optionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pear butter, pear jam and a hot pear jellyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the last was the best, mimicking the pepper jelly of the Northwest and erring on the side of spicy rather than sweet. Its owner also mentioned the upcoming Dr. Bob Rhoads Seed Swap, coming up on Apr. 6 at Grove Creek Farm. This year will be the 16th the event has been held, and it aims to educate about heirloom seed saving as well as provide a forum for it. Wagon rides for kids, Oglethorpe Fresh Market vendors on hand with produce and crafts, food for sale and live music complete the picture (directions can be had on the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, which is its name plus a dot com). Inside the antiques mall, there are often Hillary Brown

Farm Cart are a highlight. The Wagyu hot dog is topped with hot chow chow (which steals the show), mustard and celery salt and, if you take it to go, the large handful of potato chips that come on the side will end up on top, adding their own flavor to the mix. The veggie dog is a good run at an impossible task, topped with a veggie chili that likewise has the failings of its genre (too sweet, too bean-y). Someday, someone will make a veggie sausage about which I can muster enthusiasm, and this oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closer than most, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get jaded by Farm Cartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to local ingredients and street food made quickly but with attention, but you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Complain as I might about its downsides, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great addition to Athens. Farm to Market: If you really miss the Athens Farmers Market while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone, in the winter months, or if you want an option at different times during the week the rest of the year, the Athens Eastside Fresh Market is open in A Weekend Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Fair (790 Gaines School Rd.) Wednesday and Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. On a

free-range chicken and duck eggs for sale at the counter, plus a small selection of unpromising but surprisingly tasty baked things that includes sweet flautas and empanadas (the former good, the latter too bready), blondies (yes) and chocolate-covered pretzels (no). When the weather warms up and the earth begins to loosen its grip once again, the vendors fill the lot and wrap around the corner. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice option to have on an underserved side of town. What Up?: If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been on our website lately, know this: Marker 7 is open in Five Points with seafood, Orient Mart is retailing Asian groceries in the Village at Cedar Shoals Shopping Center, Rooterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grocery and BBQ is doing take-out on Whitehall Road in what was most recently Sisters Creole but feels like the reincarnation of Jot â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Em Down, and The Branded Butcher is taking over the Georgia Theatre rooftop restaurant with an Apr. 2 grand reopening planned.

3 Porch Farm

Solar-Powered & Sustainable


eeking into the world of Mandy and Steve O’Shea’s 3 Porch Farm—which hosts the Athens Farmers Market booth that buzzes with people eating their organic Honey Pops popsicles—is like reaching into Mary Poppins’ carpet bag and pulling out one item after another. At first glance, it just seems like they offer some locally grown fruits and veggies, with some flower arrangements and syrups and things. But after a few weeks at the market, you notice the occasional odd fruit or veggie has been replaced with another odd fruit or veggie. And the herb-infused syrup is now accompanied by flower-infused sugars. And then mushrooms—sometimes shiitake, sometimes oyster—appear fresh for cooking or dried in mixes. And the arrangements evolve from a variety of spring flowers to autumn branches to Christmas wreaths that feature honeycomb. Just how big is 3 Porch Farm, and how many people work there? The answers are: nearly nine acres of beautiful farmland, and just Steve and Mandy.

Marilyn Estes

“We have a slight division in identities out here, and then fuse where need be,” says Steve. “Right now I’m doing all the irrigation to get it automated, and I’ve been building a mushroom spawn room, pasteurizer and fruiting room. Mandy handles the plants and more creative value-added [syrups, flower arrangements, etc.] items.” Friends from the community also pitch in, like local artist Lou Kregel, who has painted several of their banners and signs. “Mandy and I have been friends for years, and she’s dreamed of having a farm for as long as I’ve known her,” says Kregel. “She has a deep knowledge of plants, animals and bees. Add to that Steve’s experience with alternative energy systems and construction, and they make a good team.” Which leads to other items from Mary Poppins’ bag: 3 Porch Farm is completely solar powered—the first (and only) solarpowered business in Madison County, GA—with 18 solar panels. And the vehicles and farm equipment run on vegetable oil from their solar-powered veggie oil station that Steve built. Mandy oversees the plants, including 35 fruit trees (apples, pears, plums, plumcots, pluots, peaches, kiwis, nectarines— you get the idea), strawberries, blueberries, and all sorts of flowers, vegetables and herbs, plus five beehives. Her flower arrangements are now featured at the Five & Ten restaurant in Five Points, and she does full design weddings as well as provides cut flowers for the DIY bride. The young farmers have a dedicated following not only for their quality organic produce and variety, but also because they think about their farming in terms of what people would want. For example, they’re growing smaller onions than the grocery stores sell because, according to Mandy, “nobody wants a half an onion in their fridge.” Mandy, a native Georgian, and Steve, from Northern California, met 10 years ago in Athens when Steve was traveling across the country doing renewable fuels presentations with Woody Harrelson and [activist and environmentalist] Julia Butterfly Hill. Three years later, they reconnected when Mandy

moved to California to work on the organic farm where Steve worked. After seriously considering having their own farm in California, they decided Athens was the place they ought to be. They were thrilled when the owners of Dog Trot Nursery in Comer, GA not only sold them their farm, they and fellow farming friends left Steve and Mandy equipment that gave them a solid foundation. “We worked our butts off and saved and saved and saved to buy this place,” says Steve. “Athens had a really good community, affordable land prices, a rural area that was close to town, a community that values small, local, sustainable businesses and healthy food, and an amazing farmers’ market. Basically, our small farm dream to do something good and make a living at it needed a bunch of really specific attributes, and this place had it all.” Their work schedule explains why the only time they get to see friends is at the Saturday and Wednesday markets, and why, in response to people asking to see their farm, they’re having a farm tour and plant sale this Saturday, before the Athens Farmers Market—and their busy growing season—begins. “When the season starts, we’re not going to see anyone,” says Mandy. “So, this is our ‘We love you; everybody come hang out with us; let’s have a great time,’ and then let’s jump into summer.” The tour will include talks about the farm and sustainable energy (at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.), and behind-thescenes views like Mandy’s flower room (a sweet little cabin with shelves of her arranging materials) and Steve’s mushroom farm. The plant sale will feature six-packs of vegetables and flowers, including kales, herbs and lots of heirloom tomatoes. They’ll also have items like syrups, smoked sea salt shitake seasoning, gomasio, and chai tea, plus fresh flower bouquets for Easter. As is typical of the efficiency philosophy of 3 Porch Farm, Steve and Mandy want their guests to get the most for their trip to Comer. In addition to the 3 Porch Farm activities of the day, Blackbriar Farm will be selling meat and eggs, the Comerian Bakery (a.k.a. Angel Cooper from the farmers’ market) will be selling pastries, and 1000Faces Coffee will furnish complimentary coffee. There will also be music by the Red Oak Southern String Band, whose member Andrew Hinerfeld farmed with Mandy during her earlier days in Athens, and is happy to bring out the band to entertain their guests. “Mandy and Steve are good friends that are doing great things on their beautiful piece of land,” says Hinerfeld. “Also, everyone in the band loves to play music and we all love to be outdoors, so to be able to do both and help out good people promote their farm is something we were all eager to do.” He adds, “People should expect to hear a slew of stringed instruments and several voices woven together to produce pleasing harmonies, while a guy with no singing abilities hits a wooden box with his hands and brushes to help provide a steady beat: that’s me.” In turn, the O’Sheas are also hoping those who visit the farm will make a day of it and visit local areas like Heritage Heart Pine Antiques & Books store. “It’s not just an antique store,” says Steve. “He’s spent years finding old buildings that are going to be torn down, and salvaging just tons of amazing old treasures. It’s a whole block of stores filled with amazing things.” “We also hope people will come to Watson Mill State Park [that backs up to their property], because it’s got a super awesome covered bridge,” adds Mandy. “We really want folks to just come and have a day in the country.” And see what else is in their bag.

movie dope Some releases may not be showing locally this week. • indicates new review 21 AND OVER (R) One’s reaction to pejoratively describing 21 and Over as The Hangover Jr. should determine one’s level of interest in this flick. If a viewer disregarded The Hangover Part II for its lack of originality, then said viewer should stay away from 21 and Over. At least the second Hangover still had some jokes to tell. 56 UP (NR) 2012. Michael Apted, who has helmed entries in two huge franchises, Bond (The World Is Not Enough) and The Chronicles of Narnia (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader), began documenting the lives of several seven-year-olds in 1964. Every seven years, he returned to update their stories. (Ciné) • ADMISSION (PG-13) Despite teaming Tina Fey, who unsurprisingly supplies this heartfelt comedy’s biggest laughs, with the preternaturally appealing Paul Rudd, Admission lacks the former’s sharply satirical bite and strands the latter with only his goofy cool comedy to clothe him. Nothing about Admission is comically or narratively surprising. THE ANATOMY OF HATE: A DIALOGUE TO HOPE (NR) Director Mike Ramsdell spent six years working with some of our most hateful ideological movements and violent conflicts: white supremacists, Christian fundamentalism’s anti-gay wing, Muslim extremists, the Palestinian Intifada, Israeli settlers/soldiers and U.S. soldiers stationed in Iraq. His film reveals the reasons why we hate and how to overcome that negative emotion. (UGA MLC, Room 102) BLANCANIEVES (PG-13) A stunning, silent, black-and-white version of Snow White featuring bullfighting in 1920s Spain? Pablo Berger’s film won 10 Goyas, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Maribel Verdu) and Best Original Screenplay, besting The Impossible for Spain’s top film of 2012. THE CALL (R) Until a final act that is so predictably out of character for Halle Berry’s heroine, The Call knows exactly what it is; a pulpy genre thriller; and excels at its sole task of generating as much entertainment as possible via suspense. CLOUD ATLAS (R) For the ambitious Cloud Atlas, the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) have masterfully adapted David Mitchell’s award winning novel, intermingling six disparate stories, spanning from 1849 to 106 Winters After the Fall. Each

anecdote stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Susan Sarandon, Hugh Grant and more in varying layers of makeup. (UGA Tate Theatre) • THE CROODS (PG) Despite its underwhelming trailers, The Croods stands out as one of the best non-Pixar animated family films released in the last few years. A family of cavemen— dad Grug (v. Nicolas Cage), mom Ugga (v. Catherine Keener), teen daughter Eep (v. Emma Stone), dumb son Thunk (v. Clarke Duke), feral baby Sandy and grandma (v. Cloris Leachman)—are forced on a cross country road trip after their cave is destroyed by the impending “end of the world.” Fortunately, Eep meets Guy (v. Ryan Reynolds), whose developed brain filled with “ideas” might just help them all survive. Most cute family fun pics feel rehashed and overdone; The Croods does not. DJANGO UNCHAINED (R) Not many auteurs can take an academic cinematic exercise and turn it into one of the year’s most entertaining spectacles like Quentin Tarantino can in this Oscar winner for Best Original Screenplay. Slave Django (Jamie Foxx) is freed by dentist-turned-bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Best Supporting Actor Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz, the single greatest gift QT has given American movie audiences). Together the duo hunts bad guys and seeks Django’s wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), who belongs to plantation owner Calvin Candie (Golden Globe nominee Leonardo DiCaprio). For a critically acclaimed award nominee, Django Unchained is an ultraviolent blast. k G.I. JOE: RETALIATION (PG-13) The G.I. Joe sequel, directed by Step Up 2 and 3’s Jon M. Chu, looks a lot better, judged by preview alone. After Cobra takes over the government and has most of the Joes killed, the remaining Real American Heroes, including Bruce Willis as the original Joe, must strike back at Cobra. New faces (Dwayne Johnson was a good hire) mix with old (Channing Tatum and Ray Park return). Let’s hope they get Cobra Commander and Destro right this time. (A check of IMDB credits disappointingly imply no Destro.) GREAT EXPECTATIONS: LIVE (NR) Carmike Theaters beam in a live performance of the Dickens novel from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY (PG-13) How comforting it is to return to Middle-earth, especially with Peter Jackson (he replaced original director Guillermo del Toro, who retained a co-writing credit with Lord of the Rings Oscar winners Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens). Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman, the BBC “Office” star, a master of reactionary mugging) is asked by the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellan) to join a company of Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage). (UGA Tate Theatre) THE HOST (PG-13) Andrew Niccol, who’s had a decent sci-fi filmmaking career (Gattaca and In Time were pretty good; let’s all just pretend S1m0ne never happened), adapts Twilight empress Stephenie Meyer’s other bestselling property. After an alien invasion decimates mankind by taking control of their bodies, one young girl, Melanie (Soirse Ronan, Atonement and Hanna), sets off with her parasitic soul, Wanderer, to find her remaining human loved ones. With Diane Kruger, Emiy Browning, William Hurt and Frances Fisher.

trailers for Ang Lee’s adaptation failed to remind me of how wonderful and energetic Pi Patel’s life had been. Do not let the underwhelming previews deprive you of one of the year’s most moving, most artistic films of the year. LINCOLN (PG-13) Historical biopics do not come much more perfect than Steven Spielberg’s take on our 16th president’s struggle to end slavery by way of the Thirteenth Amendment. Academy Award winner Daniel DayLewis can solidify his claim to the title of greatest living actor. He uncannily becomes Lincoln with such ease; he also humanizes a larger-than-life figure we tend to treat far too reverently. MEDICINE FOR MELANCHOLY (NR) 2008. The seventh annual African Diaspora Film Festival, sponsored by the Institute for African American Studies, presents a screening of Medicine for Melancholy. Two young African-Americans (Wyatt Cenac and Tracey Heggins) are followed for 24 hours in San Francisco, the city with the smallest proportional black population of any other major U.S. city. The film will be introduced by award winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins; stick

I promise the circumcision will only take a second! IDENTITY THIEF (R) Unfortunately, stars Melissa McCarthy (an Oscar nominee for Bridesmaids) and Jason Bateman are better than this moreannoying-than-funny odd couple road comedy. INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY (R) This sketch comedy is directed by Vince Offer, the face of ShamWow. Still interested? Adrien Brody, Linsday Lohan and Rob Schneider star, and an emphasis on the “app” part of inappropriate means that Offer chooses the next sketches from icons on an iPad. THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE (PG-13) The Incredible Burt Wonderstone may not have the comedy magic of previous Steve Carell and Jim Carrey vehicles, but the silly movie is a lot funnier than one might expect. JACK THE GIANT SLAYER (PG-13) While far from a bad fantasy film, this retooled telling of the classic children’s stories, Jack the Giant Killer and Jack and the Beanstalk, does little to fire the imagination once the credits roll. We all know the story: young Jack (Marcus Hoult, whose romzom Warm Bodies showed loads more creativity) gets some magic beans, from which a giant beanstalk grows. At the top of the leafy, green ladder is a land full of giants who have a taste for human flesh. LIFE OF PI (PG) Having last thought of Yann Martel’s novel when I read it nearly 10 years ago, the ineffective

around afterward for light refreshments. Nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards. (Ciné) MENTAL (NR) Writer-director P.J. Hogan reunites with his Muriel, Toni Collette, almost 20 years after the duo broke onto the scene with Muriel’s Wedding. In Mental, Collette plays Shaz, a crazy nanny charged with the care of a politician’s (Anthony LaPaglia) five daughters after mommy takes a holiday to recover her mental equilibrium. This flick looks like a quirky, Australian version of Nanny McPhee, with Collette trotting out one of Tara Gregson’s many personalities. Thank goodness Liev Schreiber’s present. MIDDLE OF NOWHERE (R) Medical school student Rudy (Emayatzy Corinealdi) drops out of school to care for her incarcerated husband, Derek (Omari Hardwick, Sparkle), after he is sentenced to eight years in prison. In her feature writing-directing debut, Ava DuVernay won the Sundance Film Festival’s Dramatic Directing Award and was nominated for the festival’s ultimate prize, the Grand Jury Prize; the film also picked up the Independent Spirit Awards’ John Cassavetes Award. With David Oyelowo (the Red Tails star who also appeared in Lincoln and Jack Reacher). (UGA MLC, Room 101) • OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN (R) Olympus Has Fallen feels like a relic from the bygone era of the 1980s, where audiences were satisfied by

old-fashioned, bloody action movies wherein stone-faced heroes faced off against despicable bad guys without obfuscating their violent exploits with frenetic camerawork. Too bad director Antoine Fuqua’s latest flick isn’t the new Die Hard, as this Gerard Butlersaves-the-president actioner easily bests John McClane’s latest misfire. Disgraced Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Butler, who needs to stick to action movies) is the only person in America who can save the President (Aaron Eckhart) after North Korean terrorists take over the White House. OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL (PG) First and foremost, Sam Raimi’s The Wizard of Oz prequel is no Wizard; it’s not even Return to Oz, the very dark, very underrated 1985 sequel. Disney’s latest family blockbuster reveals the wizard’s own cyclonic entry to Oz. Carnival magician and con man Oscar Diggs (James Franco) meets three witches—Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams)—who believe him to be the great wizard whose appearance in Oz was prophesied. Oz won’t make anyone forget the original, but it doesn’t shame its memory either. PEABODY WINNERS FESTIVAL (NR) Two hours of samples from the 2013 Peabody Award winners. (UGA Russell Library) THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES (R) Writer-director Derek Cianfrance reunites with his male Blue Valentine lead, Ryan Gosling, for this crime drama that evokes memories of Drive. A motorcycle stunt rider robs banks in the hopes of providing for the newborn son about whom his lover (Eva Mendes) didn’t tell him. Too bad he’s in the sights of a rookie cop (Bradley Cooper), who is battling a corrupt detective (of course, it’s Ray Liotta) in his department. QUARTET (PG-13) In his directorial debut, Dustin Hoffman fashions a delightful trifle filled with deliciously British performances from Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins, Michael Gambon and more. At Beecham House, a home for retired musicians, plans are afoot for a gala to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. Anyone who enjoyed their stay at The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel should also enjoy the performances of Quartet. THE ROOM (R) 2003. Tommy Wiseau returns once again as the unpredictable, inexplicable Johnny in this cult classic. Part of Bad Movie Night. (Ciné) ROOM 237 (NR) Director Rodney Ascher’s “subjective documentary” looks at Stanley Kubrick’s well-known horror masterpiece, The Shining, from several new angles, exploring various theories about its hidden meanings. This doc sounds pretty fascinating for anyone who has ever spent any time dissecting Kubrick’s frightening work of cinematic art. SAFE HAVEN (PG-13) One thing I enjoy about reviewing movies is having a readymade excuse for watching sappy romances like Safe Haven. Plus, Julianne Hough is really attractive. Unfortunately, the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation, set in another North Carolina paradise, is one solved mystery away from just being one couple’s two-hour how-we-met story. SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK (R) David O. Russell’s dram-rom-com and multiple Academy Award nominee

does everything but disappoint. Pat (Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper) has just been released from a state mental hospital after a violent incident involving his estranged wife and another man. Maybe too soon after coming home, Pat meets Tiffany (Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence), who lost it after the death of her husband. Instead of exacerbating each other’s unhealthy flaws, the relationship between these two cracked souls heals both. (Ciné) SNITCH (PG-13) The new actioner from The Rock, né Dwayne Johnson, is a lot more serious than you’d expect a movie from a former stuntman, director Ric Roman Waugh. Appearances be damned, Snitch is no ‘80s action rehash; the movie’s got too much gravitas for Ah-nuld, even in his prime. All these kind assessments get smashed by the ridiculous 18-wheeler chase with the drug cartel that concludes the picture. Oh, well. The first hour and a half’s better than expected. • SPRING BREAKERS (R) Harmony Korine is a challenging filmmaker. His first script, Kids, became Larry Clarke’s latest cinematic controversy in 1995; then Korine started directing his own critically divisive films like Gummo and Julien Donkey-Boy. His newest film has met with, again, divided critical acclaim and bigger box office glory thanks to the headline grabbing casting of Disney teen queens Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens as half of this bikini-clad criminal quartet. • STOKER (R) Best known for Oldboy, Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook makes his English language debut with an eccentric Highsmith/Hitch-mocktail written by the star of “Prison Break,” Wentworth Miller. A strange teenager, India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska, Alice in Wonderland), has recently lost her father (Dermot Mulroney) in a car accident. The day of the funeral, her prodigal uncle, Charlie (Matthew Goode, Watchmen), appears to live with India and her grieving mother, Evie (Nicole Kidman, who is beginning to specialize in these china doll fragile mother figures). But Charlie brings with him secrets, and the more India learns, the more fascinated she becomes… (Ciné) TYLER PERRY’S TEMPTATION (PG-13) A young, married woman (Jurnee Smollett-Bell from Eve’s Bayou and “Friday Night Lights”) is tempted by a handsome billionaire (Robbie Jones) in Tyler Perry’s latest, nonMadea movie. Not only is this movie being derided as the latest Tyler Perry flick, it also stars Kim Kardashian. WELCOME TO THE PUNCH (NR) James McAvoy and Mark Strong star as cop/cat and robber/mouse in this stylish crime thriller from producer Ridley Scott and writer-director Eran Creevy (Shifty). Detective Max Lewinsky (McAvoy) thinks he’ll finally catch great white criminal, Jacob Sternwood (Strong, who is always so good), after he returns to London to save his injured son. WRECK-IT RALPH (PG) In Disney’s latest, Wreck-It Ralph (v. John C. Reilly), the bad guy from popular arcade game Fix-It Felix Jr., decides he wants to be a good guy. Too bad Ralph is better at wrecking things than fixing them. WRONG (NR) Drafthouse Films has been distributing some fascinating indie films recently (check out The ABCs of Death for some quirky horror anthology thrills), and Quentin Dupieux’s follow-up to Rubber is the latest. When Dolph Springer’s (Jack Plotnick) dog, Paul, goes missing, his search turns into something far more surreal. This flick looks like David Lynch meets Charlie Kaufman meets Michel Gondry. With William Fichtner, Alexis Dziena and Steve Little. Drew Wheeler

goes without saying that Athens is a big music town. Its reputation is prodigious and has been long lasting over the decades despite varied musical trends. Our fair city and region, however, have also been bursting with creative filmmaking talent over the last few years, as national television and feature film productions have zeroed in on the state to utilize our diverse locales and local flavor to accent their creations. Athens also has plenty of homegrown talentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now), Mark Jarrett (The Taiwan Oyster) and the Gonzoriffic horror film collective, to mention just a fewâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;working in the industry. Some of our filmmakers have chosen to stay here to live while making their mark, or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve based their productions here while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve entered the fray of the larger filmmaking marketplace. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not Hollywood or Vancouver yet, but Georgia is well on its way to becoming a place hospitable to filmmakers of all stripes. For sophisticated moviegoers here in town, the choices are more limited than in bigger cities. But moviegoers looking for an alternative to the latest comic book spectacular or dumbed-down comedy do have a choice: CinĂŠ. Art house and retrospective theaters around the country can still be found in the everchanging landscape of modern movie watching, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been tough. Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rapid and questionable plunge into digital domination has cut plenty of heads in the process toward adaptation. If a small, independent theater cannot pony up the money to make the transition from celluloid film to digital projection (a studio demand to survive), then they simply have to dim the box office marquee and call it a day. In the process, independent filmmakers lose yet another way to reach a larger audience and patrons are robbed from seeing movies they otherwise might miss when left to the uncurated boggle of a Netflix queue. CinĂŠ, which is a nonprofit cinema, is making the leap into digital projection to survive, but that transition comes with a hefty price tag. Anyone who has seen the recent documentary Side by Side (reviewed in Flagpole Aug. 29, 2012) knows the complexity of the situation. One way the theater is trying to raise awareness and money is by putting on

a show, a music benefit to be exact, and not your run-of-the-mill one, either. The theater will host Songs @ CinĂŠ on Friday, Mar. 29, a musical showcase featuring a rare solo performance from ex-R.E.M. bassist and songwriter Mike Mills. In fact, this may be the only time Mills has performed in Athens on his own, unless you know something that plenty of knowledgeable Classic City residents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know or remember. The event isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just featuring Mills, although that would notable enough. Joining the Nudie suit-wearing Mills will be locals Don Chambers (GOAT), Dave Marr (The Star Room Boys), Hardy Morris (Dead Confederate) and Thayer Sarrano. A formidable group of musical raconteurs, to say the least. The event is described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;song swap,â&#x20AC;? with the five musicians singing on their own and then playing together. A reception for CinĂŠ will be held at 7 p.m., and the music will begin at 8:30 p.m. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure to be a memorable night for music and film lovers, although there is a big hitch. The event is already sold out. Any unclaimed advanced ticket, however, will be offered for sale at the CinĂŠ box office at 8:15 p.m., so if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hankering to go, make sure to be ready. The event is being presented by the Willson Center for the Humanities and Arts, Thinc. at UGA Entrepreneurial Week and CinĂŠ. All proceeds will go to help the theater make the digital leap and ensure that our local art house cinema continues to show the more idiosyncratic and interesting big studio offerings, as well as quality independent features that frequently get shoved aside in the bullying commercial film marketplace. Money raised from the event will also keep CinĂŠ equipped to continue to show 35mm film prints for special events and retrospectives, something that will become a rare treat for any cinephile. Derek Hill

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Look Back

Three Decades In, The Meat Puppets Rock On


Jaime Butler

ver the course of a career that has spanned more than three decades, the Meat Puppets have participated in some of pop musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most seminal moments. In the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s, as part of the initial roster of the iconic indie label SST, the band was at the center of a movement that pushed underground music past its hardcore roots to expand it into a diverse, broad-reaching network of bands, venues and labels. The band was playing in 1991, when Nevermind hit No. 1 and punk principles collided with mainstream money. In 1993, Nirvana famously played â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plateau,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lake of Fireâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, Meâ&#x20AC;? from 1984â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meat Puppets II, on MTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unpluggedâ&#x20AC;? (the Puppets themselves served as backing musicians). Too High to Die, released on London Records the next year, went gold. Now, we are reliving moments from this era. The flurry of press around Nevermindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20th anniversary is only just subsiding. Bands like Pavement and the Pixies have reunited for lucrative tours, and indie icons like Mission of Burma and Sonic Youth have headlined festivals with song-by-song performances of â&#x20AC;&#x153;classicâ&#x20AC;? albums from their early careers. It makes sense that Meat Puppets would still be here as well. Since reforming in 2006, Curt Kirkwood and company have been steadily plying their trade, touring and making records. The latest, Rat Farm, arrives next month. Rat Farm was mostly tracked live, a sign that the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current lineupâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;guitarist Curt Kirkwood, his brother and bassist Cris Kirkwood and drummer Shandon Sahmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has grown more comfortable playing together. Rat Farm will sound familiar to fans of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earlier output, but the band has clearly matured. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a level of studio polish here unknown during SST days, and Curtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice in particular seems to have mellowed; gone is the caterwauling so prevalent on Meat Puppets II. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been hard for me to have a vision and to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, this is what I want to get,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Curt Kirkwood. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s process hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed, but an accumulation of experience and a willingness to take more time in the studio have produced a different result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early on, we just used to kind of pull ourselves into the studio,â&#x20AC;? Kirkwood says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The band was] completely naĂŻveâ&#x20AC;Ś Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get an engineer and go in and just do it.â&#x20AC;?

That naĂŻvetĂŠ may be part of what makes the early records indelible, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to reproduce. As Kirkwood explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The technology came along and it started to [sound] polished in any case.â&#x20AC;? The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scuzzy early recordings were a product of the time. Making a record nowadays, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even intentionally make it suck.â&#x20AC;? Of course, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not strictly true. Many bands do seek an intentionally rough sound. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the four-track fuzz of Times New Viking, the Black Lipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; garage-rock pastiche or even something as subtle as The Strokesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Julian Casablancas covering his microphone with his hand, each of these bands attempts to recreate a sound that originally resulted not from intention but from circumstance. Ironically, while todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bands look to lo-fi recording techniques for inspiration, the Meat Puppets moved away from them in search of the same thing. The initial change in the Meat Puppets sound was bound up with the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s move to London Records. Signing to a major label meant more scrutiny, Kirkwood says. Still, it gave the band the opportunity to try a different approach to recording: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to have the experience of having more money and more time to mess around in the studio.â&#x20AC;? Like their peers, Kirkwood and company have had occasion to look to the past. Twice, the band has performed as part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Look Backâ&#x20AC;? series at the All Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parties festival, where bands are asked to play seminal albums in their

entiretyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Meat Puppets have performed both 1985â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Up on the Sun and Meat Puppets II. But Kirkwood expresses ambivalence about the experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neither of them was my idea. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a little strange. It turns out to be more of a stage production that way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more like a play.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more excited about the latest album. Rat Farm highlights Kirkwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitar playing to a greater extent than earlier records. Where past albums featured virtuosic noodling, Rat Farm has straight-up solos. Some, like the one on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leave Your Head Alone,â&#x20AC;? are worthy of Dinosaur Jr. (another â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s indie band enjoying a second lap). Neil Young has always seemed a lodestar for the Meat Puppets, and the influence is still apparent. The mellow country number â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes Blueâ&#x20AC;? sees the band shifting to a different register. If the wilder early records evoked Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work with Crazy Horse, then the new record sees the band shading more towards CSNY. And the band benefited from a good relationship with its new label, Megaforce Records, an indie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hear everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion,â&#x20AC;? Kirkwood says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always encouraging me to go a little further; whereas, left to my own devices, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll revert right back to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s: Get it down, just do it, get it down, toss it out there.â&#x20AC;? Nowadays, the line between mainstream and indie has been blurred, and to some, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debatable whether that distinction is even relevant. New bands revive old sounds, while older bands make monuments of themselves. What it means to be in a band is no clearer now than it was to Kirkwood starting out. But the Meat Puppets frontman doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it bother him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just a music fan; I like to play,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just gone along with these other plans.â&#x20AC;?

Welcome Back: This week I want to send a warm and hearty â&#x20AC;&#x153;welcome backâ&#x20AC;? greeting to Ryan Cox, who has just moved back to the Athens area. If you recall this column circa 2006â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2010, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shut up about his music, released under the name Sailor Winters, or his label Black Noise. Upon his arrival a few weeks ago, he dropped a hearty pile of Black Noise releases in my lap from artists like Thorazine Gaze, Panzram Division, Sirens, Gruuthaagy, Khoomei, Drapatio and Demons That Drove. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize these names? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, no one does! But Cox has a keen ear, and I can honestly say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found something worthwhile on virtually everything he has released. The label has turned a corner aesthetically, though; Cox seems kind of done with noise records and is moving instead toward more melodic stuff (albeit things that most likely still reside in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;outsiderâ&#x20AC;? section of the aural scale). A couple of recent tracks can be found at soundcloud. com/sailorwinters and a minimal, but acceptable, website can be accessed at Step Right Up: Athens rabble-rouser Mux Blank has reignited his Carnivale of Black Hearts, added a few members to the troupe and will host the Carnivaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first happening in over a year on Monday, Apr. 1 at the Flicker Theatre & Bar. Billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Foolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Revival,â&#x20AC;? openpowerkompany ing bands include Cramps tribute The De Luxe Interiors and Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kris Gruen. Troupe members include Blank as Mr. Blank, The Orchestra of Broken Toys, Sarah Spiralz, Pride the Lycan, Madame Surayyah, Clown vs. Mimeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;performing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clown-on-Mime or Mime-on-Clown violenceâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Oscar & Meyer the Pig, fan flow artist Teagan, gothic princess Preya and Rezbar the Magic Marker. Featured events at the Carnivale include â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dead Ballerina,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fire Ball Tits Burlesque,â&#x20AC;? bellydancing, something called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Elephant Danceâ&#x20AC;? and more. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK if you take a minute to let that all sink in. I did. It all begins at 9 p.m., and more information can be found at Funky Bunch: The collaborative musical experience known as Our New Silence will happen at UGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hugh Hodgson Hall Saturday, Mar. 30 at 8 p.m. Spearheaded by Kai Riedlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing project Electrophoria, this free occurrence will feature members of pacificUV, Andrew Rieger (Elf Power), John Fernandes (Olivia Tremor Control), powerkompany, Revien, Killick and faculty and students of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music. The music is described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-imaginings, remixes and intermixes of the traditional music of Java, Indonesia,â&#x20AC;? all inspired by and sourced from a series of recordings known as Java Sounds, done by Riedl and engineer Suny

Lyons. Also, Electrophoria will play some selections from its upcoming album release. The whole show is being recorded for a future Javanese radio broadcast. Follow along at Schoooooolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Out for a Bit!: The Oconee County Library (1080 Experiment Station Rd., Watkinsville) will host a Spring Break Dance for Teens on Friday, Mar. 29 from 6â&#x20AC;&#x201C;9 p.m. The event is free and open to folks ages 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18. Attendees can munch on free pizza and grab some free books to read over the break, too. The featured dance band is Yer Heart from Murfreesboro, TN, a group that is described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nintendo-influenced electronic indie-pop,â&#x20AC;? but this is no Bit Brigade or anything like that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more along the lines of a Reptar mixed with a Weezer. Listen in at yerhrt.bandcamp. com, check them out at yerheart. For more information, contact the Oconee County Library at 706-7693950 or like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em over at OconeeLibrary. Sing Us a Song: Thanks to all yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;all crazy-talented musicians who submitted Flagpole theme songs as part of our recent contest. Most of them were great! Some of them were really weird, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cool, too. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve narrowed down the field to three finalists, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to settle on a consensus favorite. So, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking our readers to help us choose the winner, because we are a democratic bunch. When the Flagpole Athens Music Awards ballot goes public about a month from now, there will be a Theme Song category included. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to stream all three songs on, and the winner will be featured at the June 20 Awards show. [Gabe Vodicka] This-N-That: Chris Ezelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album Monticello finally comes out Apr. 1. The 12-track album will run you a mere five bucks via PayPal, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to stream it viaâ&#x20AC;Ś Athens kid-pop band Like Totally! will play an acoustic show at the Melting Point on Apr. 13 with the theme being healthy food. Teacher Andrew Hinerfeld will host a Q&A session where kids can ask him about farming and stuff. This kind of thing tends to pack out, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m telling you so earlyâ&#x20AC;Ś Future Ape Tapes will celebrate the release of a new cassette tape, Somnambuland, at an experimental music night hosted by CinĂŠ on Saturday, Mar. 30. Other acts on the bill are Quiet Evenings, Rainy Taxi and Sparkling Wide Pressure (aka Tennesee musician Frank Baugh). It starts at 9 p.m., and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot worse ways you could spend five bucks. Gordon Lamb

DJ Shadow, The Morkestra, Murk Daddy Flex Georgia Theatre ¡ 9 p.m. ¡ $20

Much of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electronic music revolves around cruel disfigurement. The chopping, slicing, sudden muting and punching in/out of the vocalists betrays a puppetmaster producerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merciless hand. DJ Shadow was always different. In repurposing sound, his editorship was never one of godlike ruthlessness. From his 1996 LP Endtroducingâ&#x20AC;Ś onward, Shadow has wielded his encyclopedic knowledge of music with an auteurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision, a composerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touch and an aestheteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s respect. Call it hyperrealism, plunderphonics or just plain collageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Shadowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to the art of sampling is undeniable. In the years following Endtroducingâ&#x20AC;Ś, Shadow followed his muse into increasingly cinematic realms (The Private Press), detoured into regional hip-hop scenes (The Outsider) and got back to basics (The Less You Know, The Better). His reverence for his craft demands ours, so grab a ticket to this rare Southern appearance from a contemporary legend. [Jeff Tobias] MUSIC | Thursday, Mar. 28

Minus the Bear, Circa Survive, Now, Now Georgia Theatre ¡ 8 p.m. ¡ $23 Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an arching sense of adolescence about the music of Minneapolis trio Now, Now, which recently (and wisely) shortened its name from the emo-mouthful Now, Now Every Children. Singers Cacie Dalager and Jess Abbott deliver minor-key harmonies over unapologetically angsty meditations on teenaged heartache while metronomic drummer Bradley Hale keeps pace. But a couple songs into the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album, Threads, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your typical stargazing naĂŻvetĂŠ. Dalagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrics cut through steel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would kill to be your clothes/ Cling to your body and hang from your bones,â&#x20AC;? she sings on the driving, provocative single â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wolf.â&#x20AC;? Later on the same song, she offers an amendment: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would kill to be the cold/ Tracing your body and shaking your bones.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potently sad songwritingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;think The Cureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Smith, but, yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;know, young and female.

(18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20) Avant-garde outfit Pretty Bird is unlike any other band in Athens, or just about everywhere else. Featuring a rotating cast of characters but anchored by the tightknit trio of Jacob Deel, Valerie Lynch and David Chandler, the group plays a severely outrĂŠ a cappella-based form of what it terms â&#x20AC;&#x153;hip-hop,â&#x20AC;? but which is often nearly unrecognizable as such. Ever amorphous, the recent inclusion of deep-house rhythms and live band instrumentation seems to hint at a slightly more accessible new direction. (Read an interview with Pretty Bird on Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill centers on former PB-er K. Jared Collins and his k i d s project, which will record a live, David Barbe-helmed EP at the show

Matters Of The Heart And Loins I am a 19-year-old female student at UGA. I am just your average girl, not super weird but easy to get along with, or so I think. I have a very close friend (letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call her Zoey) whom I have been extremely close with for nearly four years. We hang out really often and usually have a great time together. Sometimes, though, Zoey can be cranky or in a mood that causes her to treat me like her punching bag (not physically, just insults and being rude, etc.) I have always been the quiet and more polite one out of our group of friends and I feel like Zoey thinks that because I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fight back she can push me around. It has kind of been treated as the cute and harmless game she plays, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel the same way. I have tried to tell her previously to cut it out, but she has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;uniqueâ&#x20AC;? sense of humor and thinks that it is funny to make fun of me, etc. I know that what she is doing is wrong, but we really have a lot of fun for the most part. I really feel uncomfortable doing the whole â&#x20AC;&#x153;playing meanâ&#x20AC;? thing myself, so I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really fight back and make her back down. What should I do?! Yours Truly, The Punching Bag Your â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely close friendâ&#x20AC;? is an asshole, PB. She treats you like shit on a whim and makes fun of you if you complain about it. I would say to just tell her to fuck off and lose her number, but based on the tone of your letter Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite ready for that yet. Do you need permission to stand up for yourself? If so, I hereby grant it. Sit her down and tell her, one more time, that you need her to stop lashing out at you whenever she feels like it. And tell her that if she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to continue the friendship. Her behavior probably stems from something elseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;insecurity, depression or perhaps some kind of disorderâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t excuse it. It seems like everyone is willing to indulge her â&#x20AC;&#x153;cute and harmlessâ&#x20AC;? games, and as long as they continue to, she has no incentive to stop. Maybe you can be the one to help her, PB, and maybe not. But either way youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to stop letting her get away with it. I feel nuts asking this of a stranger, but I really do not know what to do. Hubs and I have been married almost 20 years, and for the most part it is happy. My problem isâ&#x20AC;Ś well, my husband is medically impotent. He takes meds that make it extremely difficult, if not impossible to get any kind of erection. He cannot take Viagra or Cialis, either. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m only in my 40s and think about sex all the time. I masturbate constantly, almost daily, sometimes more than once. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going nuts, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spend the rest of my long life celibate. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go insane. He is unwilling to explore any alternate kind of intimacy, he barely even kisses me. He is

good to me, brings me flowers and gifts, calls me all the time, treats me like a queen and, even after all these years, he wants to be with me all the time. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real sweetheart, and if it were not for the little sex problem, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be convinced that this is my last marriage. How do I get over this excruciating need? Squirming in My Chair, Again Your husband is obviously a nice guy, and on many levels, a good husband. All well and good. But you have needs, SIMCA, and if he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at least acknowledge and try to meet your needs (or maybe give you permission to meet them elsewhere), then I fear that your marriage is doomed. You need to have an honest discussion about this right away. Obviously, the situation is awkward and frustrating, and wrought with all kinds of pressure and discomfort. But you two are married. Better or worse, sickness and healthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;blah, blah, blah. He has to understand that his illness is not a dealbreaker, but his refusal to try to work with you on this could be. Just because you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have traditional, penisin-vagina sex doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the two of you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be intimate. Without getting too graphic, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say that hands and mouths and toys can be employed and you can still get off with your husband, but only if he is willing. If he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, then you are going to be increasingly frustrated and unhappy, and your otherwise pretty great sounding marriage could be over. If he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to consider other avenues of physical intimacy, then ask his permission to seek it elsewhere. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there are plenty of guys out there who would be willing to have some good old-fashioned, no-stringsattached sex. Then you could come home and be the wife your husband wants, without the needs that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. A Note on Steubenville: By now we have all read the stories and seen the news coverage. A horrible situation, some disgusting behavior, and a whole lot of victim-blaming. I have been avoiding writing this week because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to get through this without mentioning it, and thinking about it at all is making me physically ill. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worse is that we all know that this is only one case in a million, probably literally. The one we happened to hear about because these kids didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother to cover their tracks. All I can say is: We need to do better. All of us need to not only teach girls and women to be careful, but to teach men and boys that this is not how it works. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how we got here but I know we need to do an immediate u-turn. Take responsibility for your boys, people. Your sons and brothers and fathers and male friends. They need to know that it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility not to get assaulted. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their responsibility to know better in the first place. Be careful and be good. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all. Jyl Inov
