Have you ever wondered why zombies are so popular? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to like about zombies? They are dirty and scabby; their clothes are a mess; they shamble along looking for abandoned shopping malls to break into; you never see them working; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually dead; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mainly only useful as targets (Open Carry alert). Would you want to be a zombie? Yet, this time of year, especially, zombies are all over the movies and TV. You would think our country is being overrun by these horrible, icky, undead things. Why? In order to understand this phenomenon, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to look at the flip side: the elections. Our United States Supreme Court (speaking of zombiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ha ha, just kidding) has decreed that corporations are people (speaking of Frankensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ha ha, jk), so, you know, this diktat has unleashed an unending flood of money from the rabid right that mostly goes to painting Democrats as the kind of people who are trying to ruin the country with giveaway programs to the shiftless 47 percent who make no meaningful contribution to society other than panhandling. Ah ha! You see it now, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you. It is absolutely brilliant, because zombies are pure entertainment; the mind-manipulators know that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eat up zombies gladly as long as we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being rammed down our throats. But, and hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the timing comes in: After all these months of also being bombarded with all the political ads about Obamacare and liberals and big government taking over and distributing our hard-earned substance to good-for-nothings, when we step away from the TV and movie screens and in front of the voting screen, Zing! It all kicks in. When we see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Democratâ&#x20AC;? on the screen, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to think â&#x20AC;&#x153;zombie.â&#x20AC;? Who would vote for a zombie?

OK, so, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the deal with vampires, which are everywhere now, too? Well, what do vampires do? They suck our blood; they live forever by drawing their sustenance from the rest of us. In the old horror movies, vampires were creepy and sinister. Nowadays, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of cool and superior. Sure, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bloodsuckers, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re glamorous. (Check Only Lovers Left Alive.) Vampires live off the rest of us. They know something we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Vampires are smarter than we are, because they know how to extract their living from our bodies. And, you know, their promise is that by sucking our blood, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make us like them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we kind of grudgingly admire them and want to be like them, become bloodsuckers and live forever in tuxes and evening gowns. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why people vote Republican. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop voting against their own best interests, because they believe all the vampire movies, and they think that by voting for the corporate bloodsuckers, they can become one. Rush and Fox and the Koch vampires are betting that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come to believe their hokum if they repeat their lies long and loudly enough. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they all do everything in their considerable power to tear down public education. Democracy depends on an informed electorate with the ability to distinguish between illusion and reality. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re treated every day to the vision of our nation overrun by zombiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;aliens, blacks, gays, liberals, Medicare cheats, socialists, Obamacare users, Muslims, Ebola carriers, gun controllers, intellectuals. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tricked every day by the promise that those horrors will go away if we treat those who suck our substance to more of it. Halloween is fun, but it should also remind us of the difference between illusion and reality. Voting is real; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we all have a stake. Pete McCommons editor@flagpole.com

Community Platform is software that will allow nonprofits to collect data from 211 callers and by going door-to-door with iPads. I’m geeking out about this for several reasons. A) For the first time, service providers will know exactly what and where are the needs in the community. B) Some nonprofits play nice with others, and some don’t. This project is forcing everyone to collaborate. The system will be more efficient, and we’ll have less duplication of services. C) Selfishly, this data will lead to a lot of cool stories. Anyway, Community Connection is about to launch Project Platform, a series of pop-up events through Nov. 23 at which volunteers will be asked to use their laptops and cellphones to input data and conduct interviews. “Basically, we’re asking people to give up their lunch breaks,” Executive Director Fenwick Broyard said.

capitol impact Ebola Mania For the past few months, I have heard the same question everywhere I go. Whether the person is a casual observer of politics or someone deeply immersed in the trade, they ask, “Who’s going to win?” They’re referring, of course, to the races for governor and senator that have become the center of national media attention as we get closer to election day. These are two elections that seem to have confounded all of the experts, pundits and pollsters. On Friday of last week, a mere 11 days prior to Nov. 4, the results of three major polls of these races were released. None of them agreed with the others. CNN had a poll that said Democrats Jason Carter and Michelle Nunn were leading by small margins in the two races. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution released a poll that showed Gov. Nathan Deal and Republican businessman David Perdue ahead of their Democratic opponents by a couple of points. WSB-TV in Atlanta released its poll that said Perdue and Nunn were tied in the Senate race, while Deal was leading Carter by three points. These surveys were conducted by legitimate firms who know how to poll a statewide race, but none of them reached the same conclusion—and obviously, all of them can’t be right. It reminds me of the comment by the novelist William Goldman: “Nobody knows anything… Every time out it’s a guess and, if you’re lucky, an educated one.” Goldman was writing about Hollywood and the movie business, but his words apply equally well to Georgia politics. Why have the pollsters been all over the map as we get closer to the general election? One reason could be the changing complexion of the state’s electorate. Georgia’s mix of voters is slowly but steadily becoming less white and more racially diverse. The state’s share of white registered voters has been declining by roughly 1 percent a year, with a corresponding increase in the percentage of non-white

voters. The different polling firms can’t seem to figure out what percentage of white voters will cast ballots in the general election as opposed to the number of votes from blacks, Latinos and Asians. There have been concerted efforts this year to register more of these nonwhite citizens to vote—a move that reflects the growth of those demographic groups in a rapidly diversifying state. The results of the registration drives showed up in the latest statistics released by the secretary of state’s office. There have been just over 183,000 voters added to the state’s rolls since Mar. 1. About one-third of the new voters—61,779—are white, while the other two-thirds consist of African Americans (67,500), Hispanics (7,550), Asians (5,094) and another 41,493 voters who are classified as “other” or “unknown.” “The power of the Latino vote is growing, and we want to make sure that growing Latino power is felt on election day,” said Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. Helen Kim Ho, the director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice–Atlanta, said one of her organization’s major objectives since it was formed in 2010 has been to register more voters from the Asian communities. “No [political] party is going to do that—they have a limited amount of time and they’re going to focus their efforts on the people who are already on the rolls,” Ho said. “It’s our job to register people.” The increasingly diverse nature of Georgia’s voters makes it more difficult to figure out where a race is going. That’s why, when I keep getting hit with the question of who is going to win, I give the most honest answer I can: I don’t know. The truth is, nobody knows anything. That’s why it’s so important for everyone who’s registered to turn out and vote. Tom Crawford tcrawford@gareport.com

UGA Reacts to the West African Outbreak

T

he Washington Post’s Todd Frankel has reported on the Ebola outbreak in the trenches of West Africa and told University of Georgia students last week what it was like. Frankel was a replacement speaker for Wade C.L. Williams, the editor of the Liberian daily newspaper Front Page Africa, due to concerns about bringing a journalist directly from Liberia to UGA’s campus, which spawned some controversy. Critics called it hypocritical for a journalism school to bow to the public’s overestimated fears by canceling a speaker during a series of lectures based on the theme of journalistic courage. “I received a call from Georgia just days before my trip. A woman with a pleasant voice delicately told me that parents were panicking, and the general public was against my coming to the university.” Williams said. “…[T]he hysteria in the U.S. media about the virus and the possibility of it spreading is counterproductive and must stop.” There is very little danger of an Ebola epidemic in the U.S., but the extensive coverage devoted to the topic by a large segment of news media has led to unwarranted fear of being infected with the disease. Only nine cases of Ebola have been reported in the U.S. as of press time. In Libera, a nation of more than 4 million, 4,665 people have caught the disease—0.1 percent of the population. Charles Davis, the dean for UGA’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, later released a statement explaining that they were heeding the precautionary 21-day monitoring period that the CDC recommends. (Frankel has been back in the U.S. for more than 21 days and has shown no symptoms.) The CDC has urged Americans to avoid nonessential travel to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, and has urged travelers from those areas to have their temperatures taken every day for 21 days while they are in the U.S. Some politicians—including Georgia Senate candidates David Perdue and Michelle Nunn—have gone even further, calling for an outright travel ban. UGA has already forbidden students, faculty and staff from traveling to West Africa on school-related business. Patricia Thomas, who organized the event and directs the health and medical journalism masters program, further addressed the controversy prior to introducing Frankel. “It became clear that the perception of risk about bringing someone—anyone, really— directly from Liberia to a college campus within the 21 days monitoring period was probably going to be a disaster in the eyes of the public,” she said. “You don’t have to be an expect to realize that driving in Athens traffic, particularly if you’re a college student who drives after being over-served, is much more dangerous than hanging out with anyone who’s recently been in Liberia. But that’s how it goes, sometimes.”

Thomas said that she’s still in contact with Williams, and that the editor’s plane ticket is still good for another 12 months, adding that she hopes to bring Williams at some point within that time. When Frankel was asked at the end of his speech what he thought about the decisions by schools canceling speakers, he said that other places had even cancelled on him—despite his being outside the 21-day monitoring period. He was less understanding of Syracuse University’s decision to uninvite one of his colleagues, three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Michel du Cille, who was outside the 21-day period, too. “I am disappointed in the level of journalism at Syracuse, and I am angry that they

missed a great teaching opportunity,” du Cille told News Photographer magazine. “Instead, they have decided to jump in with mass hysteria.” Frankel added that he understood the university’s policy and said the Washington Post doesn’t let anyone back in the newsroom for 21 days, either. Still, “even if I had Ebola right now, none of you would be in any danger,” he said, noting that only people with symptoms are contagious. Frankel understood the danger when he took on the assignment. When he proposed the idea of going to Africa to cover Ebola to his wife, a photojournalist, he said, “I was counting on her to say no. And she didn’t say no; she was encouraging.” While in Africa, “You have to assume that everyone has Ebola,” he said. You should keep a six-foot distance from everyone. Compared to the U.S., it was hard to convince the people in Sierra Leone that Ebola was real. Due to the significant amount of illiteracy in Africa, Ebola prevention centers used illustrations to communicate what symptoms to look for and how to prevent exposure. One precaution, which was “met with resistance,” was not to eat “bush meat,” or meat from wild animals. Gathering in a group of 10 people or more is considered illegal, but the government wasn’t enforcing it that much, he said. Frankel’s speech was part of the Grady College of Journalism’s annual McGill Symposium, named for legendary Atlanta Constitution editor Ralph McGill. David Schick schick@uga.com

Michelle Nunn’s BFF Barack Obama is not impressed with her distancing herself from him.

Democrats Look to Halt GOP Gains

F

our years ago, Republicans completed the takeover of state government they’d started a decade earlier, sweeping every statewide office by double-digit margins. This year is an entirely different story. For the first time since 1998, Democrats are poised to fight back from the brink of extinction. Polls showed Gov. Nathan Deal and challenger Jason Carter, as well as Senate candidates Michelle Nunn and David Perdue, essentially tied two weeks before Election Day Tuesday, Nov. 4. Republican incumbents in down-ballot races are faring better, but the open state school superintendent seat is up for grabs. Here’s a look at what’s on the ballot:

(Perdue has defended his business record as a net plus for the economy—pointing to Dollar General’s expansion under his leadership—and touts his experience as needed to turn around the economy.) Perdue’s positions on the issues are generally mainstream Republican, and he’s done everything he can to tie Nunn to President Obama, who is unpopular in Georgia. The Nunn campaign gave him a gift when someone leaked a strategy memo that said, among other things, that she is weak in rural areas and vulnerable to attacks that her nonprofit, Thousand Points of Light, gave money to an organization that supports terrorism. Sure enough, Perdue and supporters have spent millions airing those attacks. Although the governor has a far greater impact on Georgians’ everyday lives, this is a race with national implications, given that Republicans have a good chance of taking control of the Senate next year. The presence of a Libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, could push it into a runoff.

U.S. Senate: David Perdue survived a grueling Republican primary that wrapped up in July, winning the right to face Democrat Michelle Nunn, who waltzed through her own partisan race unscathed. They both have strong political pedigrees (Michelle’s father is ex-Sen. Sam, while David’s cousin is ex-Gov. Sonny) but little else in common. Nunn is walking a fine line, trying to Governor: What is it with political appeal to whatever few swing voters are dynasties this year? State Sen. Jason left without alienating liberals.

Legislation backed by Deal cut HOPE across the board for all but the brightest students after lottery revenue flagged. Carter introduced a bill that would have means-tested HOPE, reserving it for families that make $140,000 or less—a plan that Deal tags as hurting the middle class. On jobs, Deal, citing a trade magazine, claims Georgia is the No. 1 state to do business. Carter points to Georgia’s 7.9 percent unemployment rate—dead last among states. That doesn’t matter, Deal says, because the private sector is adding jobs. What he doesn’t add is that the public sector is shedding them. Libertarian Andrew Hunt, a nanotechnology entrepreneur and (don’t hold it against him) a Georgia Tech graduate, casts a pox on both their houses. Hunt has no delusions of winning, but he is trying to convince voters that they won’t waste their votes on him because supporting him will send the race to a runoff. Lieutenant Governor: You may have seen a TV ad featuring Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and the Athens Career Academy’s Katy Arrowood highlighting Cagle’s support for career academies— hybrids of traditional public high schools, vocational schools and technical colleges. Although the Republican lieutenant governor has laid low in recent years and is very likely to be re-elected to a third term, he’s one of the frontrunners for the governor’s mansion in four years, and he’s not taking any chances. Cagle’s opponent is Connie Stokes, a former Dekalb County commissioner and state senator. Like Carter, Stokes is calling for Medicaid expansion and additional spending on education. She is also in favor of sustainable development and transportation options other than cars. Secretary of State: This office is a catch-all that does everything from overseeing elections to registering corporations to issuing permits to hair stylists. The Republican incumbent, former Athens state Sen. Brian Kemp, is perhaps best known lately, though, for an investigation, based on just one complaint and a mere handful of incomplete forms, into tens of thousands of voter registration applications submitted by a Democrat-run group. His opponent is Doreen Carter, a Lithonia city councilwoman and entrepreneur.

Role Reversal


Attorney General: Another 2016 gubernatorial hopeful, Republican incumbent Sam Olens, made a name for himself in 2012 by ushering a much-needed overhaul of state openrecords laws through the legislature. More recently, he became embroiled in Deal’s ethics commission scandal when a judge chided him for not handing over key documents to the plaintiff that supported Stacy Kalberman’s allegation that Deal’s staff interfered with an investigation into Deal’s campaign. Democrat Greg Hecht, a former prosecutor and state lawmaker, has criticized Olens for his handling of that case, as well as for defending Georgia’s ban on gay marriage. Agriculture Commissioner: Republican incumbent Gary Black, in spite of his agribusiness background, has been fairly progressive, championing locally grown and organically farmed foods. He also belatedly fired two staffers after a wild party at Lake Blackshear last year that involved drinking, sex and wrecking a state vehicle (yikes). His Democratic opponent, Christopher Irvin, has criticized Black for taking six months to fire those staffers. Irvin is the grandson of longtime ag commissioner Tommy, who retired in 2010 after more than 40 years in office,

Insurance Commissioner: Ralph Hudgens, a Republican who once represented Athens in the state Senate, is best known for declaring that he would do everything in his power to obstruct Obamacare. (He later walked it back, saying he was merely feeding red meat to a GOP audience.) Liz Johnson, a Democratic retired insurance agency owner from Savannah, supports the Affordable Care Act and expanding Medicaid. She says Hudgens is too beholden to the insurance companies that fund his campaign. A Libertarian, Ted Metz, also is running. School Superintendent: If Democrats have a chance to win a down-ballot race, this is it. South Georgia educator Richard Woods beat Mike Buck in the Republican primary. Buck works for incumbent John Barge, who tried and failed to knock off Deal. Now Barge has endorsed the Democrat, Valarie Wilson, a Decatur school board member and Atlanta BeltLine executive, for the open seat. The issue? Common Core: Barge and Wilson support it; Woods opposes it. Labor Commissioner: This post’s main job is to administer unemployment benefits. Republican incumbent Mark Butler thinks those benefits—an average of $268 a week—keep people from going out and looking for jobs. Democrat Robbin Shipp supports extending unemployment benefits, raising the minimum wage and pay equity for women.

Public Service Commissioner: The PSC, which regulates Georgia Power and natural gas, is divided into districts, but commissioners are elected statewide. Libertarian John Monds is seeking a rematch with Republican incumbent Doug Everett. In 2008, as this year, Democrats didn’t run anyone and lined up behind Monds. There is a Democrat running for the other post up this year, Daniel Blackman. He and Libertarian Robin Gilmer are taking on Republican incumbent Lauren “Bubba” McDonald, a longtime politico who is generally viewed as being in the pocket of the utilities. CoNGRESS: In the 10th District, the Rev. Jody Hice is the heir to Rep. Paul Broun, who lost his Senate bid earlier this year, but Hice is cut from the same fundamentalist, Muslim-baiting cloth. In the other corner is Ken Dious, an Athens attorney whose views are a hodgepodge of left and right; he does not, however, believe that our Middle East policy should be dictated by lunar eclipses. In the 9th—a sliver of North Athens— underfunded Democrat David Vogel takes on incumbent Rep. Doug Collins. Amendment A: Would cap the state income tax at its current 6 percent. Vote “yes” if you think the legislature should never, ever be able to raise taxes for any reason. Vote “no” if you hold out some slim hope for a more progressive tax system one day.

But would the money really go to what they say it’ll go toward? Referendum: Having taken on too much debt and now facing stagnant enrollment, the University System of Georgia is considering privatizing its dorms and parking decks. Vote “yes” not if you want to see them privatized, but if you think the private companies that run them should be tax-exempt. Blake Aued news@flagpole.com

There’s More to Jacksonville than Frat Beach

eptune Beach is old Florida. Pete’s Bar was the first tavern in Duval County to receive a liquor license after prohibition and has been run by the same family for 80 years. The lights are low, which turns the cigarette smoke into a fog that will stick around even after the city outlaws smoking in bars. The bartenders pour with a heavy hand, and the older clientele are quick to challenge you to a game of pool—a game costs a quarter, although bumper pool is 50 cents. Once you have the need for fresh air, cross the street and have a drink overlooking the ocean at Lemon Bar, which neighbors the Seahorse Inn’s pool deck. “This looks like a hotel I used to bust drug deals at,” a former FBI agent told me about the Seahorse. But the low roar of close waves, pinch of salt in the air and rum served in plastic cups warm up the atmosphere. Heading south, Jacksonville Beach is home to a beachside public park and a few music venues. The lineup at the Freebird is usually stout on Florida-Georgia week, and Lynch’s Irish Pub a If barbecue is your thing (it’s certainly my thing), Mojo’s block away will be a hot, sweaty mess.

On the east side of the Intracoastal Waterway on Beach full bar and live music on the weekend. Boulevard, you can spot Angie’s by the packed parking lot outside of what looks to be an old Laundromat. Like Pete’s, Angie’s is a dive, but it’s eclectic.

Squirt a lot of both on whatever sandwich you get— Angie’s is known for the Peruvian, but I prefer the Sweet Teddy T—and you will know you’re eating the best sandwich you’ve ever had.

The beach is nowhere near Beach Road Chicken Dinners. Despite the old-man awning and the advertised low prices outside, Beach Road Chicken is not a fast food restaurant. Instead, diners at this 74-yearold institution sit around a table and eat family-style servings of chicken, mashed potatoes, rolls and cream peas. None of this is healthy, but this is Florida-Georgia weekend. If you were concerned for your health, you wouldn’t have come down here. If you feel the need to eat seafood on the coast, check out Sliders Seafood or Two Dudes in Neptune Beach or Nipper’s on the Intracoastal. If you want to stay closer to downtown, The Blind Fig is a great new Southern-style gastropub in Riverside. And if you’re in Riverside and don’t mind spending Five & Ten money, Restaurant Orsay offers a pretty special farm-to-table experience. Now that I think of it, pick any restaurant in Riverside, and you probably won’t be disappointed. Think of the neighborhood as the offspring of Five Points and Normaltown. I usually spend at least one evening at the comfortable, often-outdoor bars in the neighborhood. There is more to downtown Jacksonville than mortgage banks and crumbling buildings—although there is plenty of each. Jacksonville’s Museum of Contemporary Art is large and well curated. Anyone who enjoys a walk through ATHICA will dig this downtown gem. If you’re more into nature art and taking Instagrams of flowers, take a stroll through the gardens at the Cummer. Located in Riverside, the Cummer’s 100-year-old gardens stretch out on the bank of the wide St. John’s River. You can also head a few blocks south for a free view of the river at Riverside Park. You’ll undoubtedly meet some neat characters along the way. Someone may even teach you how to fish the river. A few more life lessons can be learned on the Jacksonville Skyway, the world’s most underwhelming monorail. It’s cheap to ride and typically filled with no one in particular. After going hard all day, the monorail is a place of solitude. If you’re still not convinced, stop by my usual tailgate Saturday and meet some locals who will support all these claims. Just don’t expect to see me. Florida is awful.

Escape the Space Lets You Live Your Own Movie

I

magine opening your eyes to find yourself locked in a room with seven other people. You are told by a computerized voice you have 60 minutes to escape, and everything you need to get out can be found in the room. Sounds like the plot of a B movie, right? It’s actually something you can sign up to do right here in Athens with friends, co-workers, exes, strangers—anyone you would like to be stuck in a room with for an hour, really—at Bottleworks’ newest attraction, Escape the Space. Andrew and Alicia Brasher, the husbandand-wife duo behind the escape game, were vacationing at Disney World in August and were looking for something to do on their last day. Alicia found an escape room online and convinced Andrew to do it, without telling him what it was. “It was a weird, weird, weird experience, but also one of the most fun things I’d ever done,” says Andrew. When they returned from their trip, the couple began joking about how much Athens would love something like that. The time between their decision to go for it and the initial soft opening was a mere four weeks. If you’re still confused about what Escape the Space is, that’s normal. Even Andrew and Alicia admit it’s a tough concept to explain. Personally, I was expecting to be in total darkness in the room, and apparently I wasn’t the only one to think that. (Although the Halloween-themed room, Quarantine, promises to play with lights more than the current room does.) One girl even showed up with sneakers, ready to run, Andrew and Alicia remember with a laugh. So let me break it down: You and your team are led into a room, blindfolded. The reason that you are locked in a room is explained. Blindfolds come off. You have 60 minutes to tear the room apart looking for clues. In the current room, there are four puzzles, and the number of clues needed to solve each puzzle is given. The clues and the puzzles they are intended for are color-coded. After you solve all four puzzles, the last all-important clue is revealed, enabling you to escape. The puzzles’ level of difficulty varies, and Andrew and Alicia pull from different knowledge bases, using math, word, music, history and spatial games to create the puzzles, so “every person that comes into the room has something to offer,” says Alicia.

Yes, the couple designs the puzzles, the themes, everything. That was the longest and most difficult part of the process, too, they say. The puzzles changed quite a bit through the course of the setup, as Andrew and Alicia would poke holes in each others’ ideas, or find a new item they wanted to use as a clue. The room, by the way, is decorated with exclusively Athenian objects, from local folks, thrift stores and even some cherished pieces from the Brasher’s home, like Andrew’s iCade (a device that turns an iPad into an arcade game, complete with joystick). He claims not to cringe when it gets thrown around, though, and trust me, it does. “After the blindfolds come off,” says Alicia, “there’s about 15–30 seconds of looking around at each other, like ‘OK, what do we do?’ At first, everyone is neat and orderly, until they realize that part of the point is tearing the room apart. That’s when it really gets fun.” After 20 minutes, my group still missed about 50 percent of the clues. It’s amazing how much we had to be coaxed to really destroy the room, especially knowing that Andrew and Alicia have to put every little clue back in its place, but they voice no complaints. Moving forward, there will be two differently themed rooms set up simultaneously, and each room will operate for two months. One room holds 6–8 people, and the other 10–12, although the couple is busy devising ways to accommodate larger groups. Individual tickets can be purchased as well. At the end of the room’s run, they plan to host a Loser’s Week where tickets are half price, teams have half the time, and they can pick up where they left off. I’ll be seeing you guys there. Quarantine, the newest room, which wasn’t open yet when I visited, is supposedly a bit “Walking Dead”-like, incorporating zombies and the CDC. Andrew, a movie buff, loves sci-fi, so the rooms’ themes lean that way. “It has to be a crazy story for the answer to be, ‘I’m locked in a room,’” Alicia points out. Each room is set up a bit like a movie scene, and it’s actually like the couple is telling a story with space, rather than words or pictures. “You’re the story. You’re not watching it happen; you’re making it happen,” Alicia says. Stephanie Talmadge news@flagpole.com

Flagpole's Scary Stories Local Writers Use Their Talents for Halloween Horror Family Size By Ben Credle

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty minutes â&#x20AC;&#x2122;til closing, fellas,â&#x20AC;? Clint calls out, as he empties the trash can in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weight room. The YMCA is almost empty, just me and Rick on the treadmills and Mitch over at the free weights, admiring his arms in the mirrors. I reduce the speed on my treadmill down to two miles per hour to cool down. Mitch walks into the cardio room and asks loudly, for Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit, if I checked the weight limit of the treadmill before I got on it. He laughs his stupid laugh and goes over to Rick for a high-five. Rick casts his eyes at me for an instant and then half-heartedly fives him. In fact, I had checked the weight limit on the treadmill two days ago when I had first started using it, awkwardly wedging my bulk between two machines to read the label at the bottom, but I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been alone. Had Mitch been watching me? Does he think I want to weigh 327 pounds? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here sweating at the gym at 4:40 p.m. on a Saturday. I go to the locker room to change. I glance up and see Mitch watching me in the mirror as he shaves around his ridiculous Fu-Manchu mustache with a straight razor. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shower here, because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like people judging my naked body. But I think Mitch wants people to see him naked. He does a little Zorro Z in the air with his straight razor as he walks back to his locker. Two weeks ago, when old Mr. Simmons went missing, the police interviewed all of us gym-goers. The last place anyone had seen him was on the racquetball court across from the weight

room. They found his clothes still in his locker. I told the police how Mitch made fun of Mr. Simmons for the Obama sticker on his car, and how he called him a socialist. I told them about Mitchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s straight razor. I told them about the huge hunting knife he straps to the outside of his pants like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sons of Anarchy.â&#x20AC;?

Does he think I want to eat the entire KFC Family Feast? Sometimes I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help myself. Has Mitch been following me? Watching me order food? Watching me return to my empty apartment? I used to exercise in the morning, but I changed over to afternoons just to get away from Mitch. And now Mitch has switched, too. Come to think of it, why was he shaving at night? Why was he even here on a game day? Mitch loves the Bulldogs more than he loves his biceps. I remind myself that this is just paranoia. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely gotten hypervigilant since Mr. Simmons. I look up and see Mitch standing at the end of my alley of lockers. He is watching me with the straight razor still in his hand. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave without going past him. Does he want me to confront him? I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do confrontation. I hear the door slam shut; probably Rick leaving. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m alone in the locker room with Mitch. The noise seems to bring him out of a reverie. I refuse to turn toward him, but in my peripheral vision I see him shake his head and turn away. I think I hear him mutter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Family Size.â&#x20AC;? He punches a locker as he leaves, and I jump. I finish getting dressed, gather my things and close my locker. My breathing is rapid and shallow.

Damn Fine Dog By Violet Tern

[Athens, GA 2024 AD] Eddie Seiler waved as he made his way through the crowd of hot, cheering bodies that packed the stadium. In his other hand he held tight to a leather leash. Uga XXII, the English bulldog that served as UGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living mascot, tugged hard at the other end. His eyes were bloodshot, his breathing a heavy rasp, his short fur as white as pure Appalachian snow. Uga XXII, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pepper,â&#x20AC;? as he was known at home, was largely considered UGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest mascot to date. A massive bulk of muscle and fur, Pepper was, in fact, the largest English bulldog in recorded history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sick â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em, Uga!â&#x20AC;? a student yelled as they passed. As if on cue, Pepper let three bellowing yawps. The crowd went wild, bursting into echoing barks in return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Damn fine dog,â&#x20AC;? one of the coaches growled, holding out a sausage-like hand for Eddie to shake. Out of the corner of his eye, he thought he saw Pepper twitch uneasily. The coach smiled down at him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks for another win, Uga.â&#x20AC;? A thin line of drool fell from Pepperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s panting smile as he stared up at him, his black eyes darting wildly. Eddie tugged his leash, guiding him out of the stadium. He walked Pepper back to their car, watching the dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weight jostle back and forth. He was like a living gargoyleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the kind of dog a warlord would have at his feet. This was no pathetic inbred but a beastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a behemoth worthy of representing the massive industry that was Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football program. The administration saw dollar signs in this happy genetic accident, and Eddie graciously accepted their checks. Of course, breeding bulldogs was in his blood. His grandfather Sonny had been the first to breed bulldogs that would serve as the university mascot, but his career as a breeder had been marred with difficulties. The dogs had shorter and shorter lifespans. They were pathetic. Eddie watched his own father follow

FLAGPOLE.COM ∙ OCTOBER 29, 2014

with Jesus saying there’s no need for separate checks, “I’ll be paying the price for all of you.” After accumulating a massive collection of paintings and miscellaneous paraphernalia— choir robes, church pews, Virgin Mary statues, vintage taxidermy and an ungodly number of Pee-wee Herman dolls—combining his background in hospitality, religion and art through creating a bar that doubles as a gallery felt like a natural step for Henry. Church’s expansion to Athens was catalyzed by a visit to town with close friend Steven Carse (owner of King of Pops), during which Henry received encouragement from civic leaders and business owners—particularly Lori Paluck, owner of Dynamite Clothing, who shares a strong love for velvet paintings. Randy Schafer

K

nown for the kitschy religious artwork adorning its walls, Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium, situated on Edgewood Avenue in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, is a popular bar offering light-hearted satire on church culture. Existing as a form of evertransforming performance art, Church is more than just a watering hole; it’s a bizarre shrine exploring the deity of man and the humanity of gods through folksy paintings that share the testaments of artist Sister Louisa’s inclusive brand of faith. As of this past weekend, owner Grant Henry, aka Sister Louisa, is spreading the gospel to the Classic City through a second location, irreverently named Sister Louisa’s Church (It’s a Glory Hole!). Sister Louisa’s Church is largely an extension of Henry—his devout spirituality, artistic passions and larger-thanlife personality. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in business with a focus on hospitality and a master’s in education, he began pursuing a master’s degree in divinity during a life-changing search for himself. “Restless for a life of truthful living, I was simultaneously drawn [to and] gravitated towards a life in the Presbyterian Church and went on to attend Columbia Theological Seminary, which was conventional and restrictive, and then on to Princeton Theological Seminary, which I found very freeing and lifechanging,” says Henry. “After being told to say, ‘Only through Jesus Christ is salvation possible,’ I left that pursuit, because I felt it would be disingenuous and incongruent with my personal beliefs. So here I fucking am, in a bar called Church.” It was around the time of leaving seminary that Henry’s alter ego, Sister Louisa, emerged as a way to allow him to authenticate himself and process his ideas on religion and sexuality through art. After moving to Atlanta in the mid-‘90s and running an antiques store called Resurrection Antiques and Other Worldly Possessions, Henry began repurposing religious art under his pseudonym, presenting Sister Louisa as a disgraced nun who left a convent in Baton Rouge after falling in love with “Luscious” Lamar Thibideau. He briefly ran an art gallery exhibiting works by Sister Louisa and other artists, and continued to build up a following while working as a bartender from 2000–2010 at The Local, where he often channeled the spirit of Sister Louisa by donning a giant beehive. “Having left seminary over the fact that the powers that be wanted me to say words I didn’t believe, I started putting words on religious art. Just words, because they said, ‘Grant, they are just words, just say them; nobody believes it totally, just say the words. You’ll be a great preacher, your kids will have a great education, your life will be set up in the church.’” Breathing new life into thrift-store paintby-numbers and decades-old velvet paintings, Sister Louisa embellishes religiously themed artwork with colorful sayings. Portraits of 706-548-3648 Jesus with the painted words, “I want to be www.bel-jean.com inside of you” and “He curls his hair with 706-548-3648 706-548-3648 706-548-3648 www.bel-jean.com www.bel-jean.com www.bel-jean.com holy rollers” and “Well hung” (ouch) hang in 706-548-3648 706-548-3648 www.bel-jean.com www.bel-jean.com Church beside a depiction of the last supper

Grant Henry “It’s the fault of my constant need to buy Jesus shit online… and when overwhelmed with its mass, I have to get rid of it,” Henry says. “I had nothing else to do but open another bar. I bought the chandeliers, the tables and chairs and the neon cross before I decided to open a bar.” Though some patrons will interpret Henry’s tongue-in-cheek, often satirical approach in revamping religious imagery as blasphemous, the artwork itself is playfully provocative, never mean-spirited. Its intentions lie in subtly breaking down dogmatic principles and creating an inclusive environment for people from all walks of life to be true to themselves—and maybe contemplate their existence while communing with a Spiritual Sangria. “You know, I’ve been creating Sister Louisa Art for almost 20 years. The viewers’ reaction to the visual aspects of Church and their experience once inside of Church, says much more about them than about me,” says Henry. “I hope people ponder life, be grateful with their lives, ask questions of life, be open to the diversity and distinct possibility of authenticity in their own lives.” The new bar opened its doors at 254 W. Clayton St., near Agora and Caledonia Lounge, and plans to offer service Mondays–Saturdays, 4 p.m.–2 a.m. Jessica Smith arts@flagpole.com

Shehehe, Lowdive, Starbenders New Earth Athens · 8 p.m. · $8 The “Satanic BBQ and Potluck,” as this event’s being cheekily billed, features music and food (while it lasts; attendees are encouraged to bring a dish) and is hosted by local garage-punk outfit Shehehe, a band known to bring the party on even the weakest of weeknights. Local ska troupe Lowdive and Atlanta’s Starbenders, who blend sweet pop hooks with proto-punk power, round out the bill, while DJ Kung Fusco and Mr. Purple kick things off with a ‘70s-centric set. David McClister

enerally speaking, Athens goes H.A.M. for Halloween regardless where it falls during the week. But as is the case this year, on the occasion Oct. 31 is a day when most folks don’t have to wake up for work the next morning, you can expect more than just fun-sized debauchery. The centerpiece of the Classic City’s spooktacular celebration has, for six years running, been the Wild Rumpus Parade and Spectacle, a campy, somewhat unhinged (but still familyfriendly) procession open to all costumed comers and to those who just like to watch. Folks wishing to participate in this year’s parade of ghastly ghouls and too-soon topical tomfoolery can gather on the corner of Pulaski and Clayton streets at 8 p.m. The march starts at 8:30 and culminates a half-hour later on the west end of Washington Street, where an outdoor stage will feature live music from event founder Timi Conley and his Rumpus Band, as well as the High-Falootin’ Scallywags Drum Brigade and a trapeze show courtesy of the Tiger Girlz. At 10 p.m. and into the wee hours, the Max patio hosts the official after-party for adults, featuring music from Powerkompany and the Booty Boyz. Donations from the event, as well as all this year’s Rumpus happenings, benefit the Athens Land Trust. As usual, in addition to Rumpus fun, there are a ton of other music-related events taking place on All Hallow’s Eve, er, evening. Below, we’ve listed our best bets for those looking to celebrate Athens’ (un)holiest holiday in the most Athens way.

Caledonia Lounge · 9:30 p.m. · $5 (21+), $7 (18–20) The only explicit “covers show” on this list—surprising for a town where cover bands once seemed to outnumber the rest—is at the Caledonia, where three local groups pose as their heroes, including The Powder Room as grunge icons Nirvana, Come What May as rockist faves Weezer and Thayer Sarrano and friends as chameleonic Brit singer-songwriter PJ Harvey. Expect all three groups to do their source material justice, even if this does end up as the most booze-soaked show Friday night.

40 Watt Club · 9:30 p.m. · $5 Two Elephant 6 institutions play the most storied club in town: a recipe for an instant classic no matter the occasion. With the ongoing citywide “Athens Celebrates Elephant 6” series shedding renewed light on the influential local collective, look for this show to be a blowout. Says Elf Power’s Andrew Rieger: “We will be playing some demonic, evil and Halloween-themed songs from our own catalog as well as popular favorites.”

The World Famous · 9 p.m. · FREE! Underground legend Paul Collins has made the Classic City a regular stop on recent tours, and for that we can be thankful; his latest record, Feel the Noise, is as strong an effort as the power-pop mainstay has released in his storied career. No word on whether his Beat will be doing anything particular Halloween-y for this free show, but expect eccentric locals Casper and the Cookies to pull out all the stops.

Georgia Theatre · 8 p.m. · $27.50 It’s always a special night when the Truckers grace an Athens stage, but having them back in town on Halloween sweetens the deal substantially. “We are going all out” for this show, frontman Patterson Hood tells Flagpole. “[Artist] Wes Freed is designing a special poster, and we have a Hollywood FX makeup artist replicating what he draws upon our faces. It will be badass. Plus, we’ll play a Rock Show!” Hood adds, mysteriously: “Trick or Treat?”

FLAGPOLE.COM â&#x2C6;&#x2122; OCTOBER 29, 2014

renda Finkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest solo album, Blue Dream, begins with the raw pain of loss then moves on to explore the response of the bereaved. The recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prevailing theme is best expressed by the plaintive opening lines of the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poor Little Bear,â&#x20AC;? which begins with an unadorned cry of grief: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ooh, my little bear/ You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be lost/ It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fair.â&#x20AC;? Fink finishes the verse, her ghostly vocal melody floating over a single guitar line: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll search/ For a sign/ Of your return.â&#x20AC;? The album takes its inspiration from a reallife heartbreak. When Finkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog of 16 years died, she was unprepared for the impact it would have on her. Adding to the pain were feelings of uncertainty about the nature of death, Fink says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, and I wanted to get closer to knowing.â&#x20AC;? As Fink explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I essentially had what you might call an existential crisis. It kind of shook up my thinly put-together framework of what death is, and what happens when you die, and what will happen when I die, and my parents, and my husband, and that set off a tailspin.â&#x20AC;? Fink, a Birmingham, AL native who lived in Athens for eight years from the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s through the early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;00s (it was in Athens, she mentions, that she got her dog), is best known for her work as one-half of the indiepop duo Azure Ray. She remained active through the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven-year hiatus from 2003â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2010, both as a solo artist and as a collaborator; Blue Dream is her third solo record. In the wake of her petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, Fink says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started having these dreams about my dog, about death, about life, and that continued on for the better part of a year.â&#x20AC;? These dreams became the starting point for her search for meaning and, ultimately, the basis for the album, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Musically, I wanted the record to sound like a dream,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it is the dreams, I feel, that really turned everything around, that kind of conceptualized the whole process for me in a way I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to do until I started having the dreams.â&#x20AC;? Opener â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ace of Cupsâ&#x20AC;? begins with the soft scraping of a drumstick across a cymbal, an

eerie sound bathed in reverb that announces the mystery to come. The synth-driven track that follows makes good on the promise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Can Be Lovedâ&#x20AC;? features a rubberband-like guitar that recalls the liminal, long-car-ride feel of early Modest Mouse records. Elsewhere, one finds the dense, melancholy ambience of Mutations-era Beck. The dream influence shows up in the lyrics, too. On â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy Holy,â&#x20AC;? Fink sings, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lay in bed, collect all my dreams/ Then I pay someone to read them to me/ The simple ones are just as they seem/ But open your eyes, and they say so much more.â&#x20AC;? The last line of the same song alters a refrain that appears throughout the track, when Fink sings, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We come into this world all alone/ And we leave with not much more.â&#x20AC;? Fink speaks of coming out of the grieving process and wanting to be better equipped for future losses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like it set me up for the next chapter of my life,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be the beginning of the second half of my life, which will be probably a lot more full of loss, and I need to figure out how to deal with that, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not dealing with this loss very well.â&#x20AC;? Blue Dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beautiful moments reflect not only an acknowledgement of that reality, but also a fledgling attempt to come to terms with it. In an oblique but still meaningful sense, the record almost manages to recover the lost thing, while at the same time recognizing that uncertainty endures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ooh my little bear,â&#x20AC;? Fink sings, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You disappeared into the air/ So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll breathe a little deeper/ Are you there?â&#x20AC;? Marshall Yarbrough music@flagpole.com

Click it In: The deadline for submitting your music for consideration of a performance slot for next springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Slingshot Festival is Dec. 15. Sure, it seems like far away, but deadlines have a way of sneaking up on you, so be proactive. According to the organizers, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really booking metal or country acts, and all those submitting should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;inventive, fresh and forward-thinking.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re accepting applications via the Slingshot website and through SonicBids. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve committed to booking at least 60 slots through the latter service, which is a very high commitment, considering that similarly sized events tend to promise fewer than 10.

Smorgas-Bored: Photographer Erin Notarthomas completed a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this fall to fund an EP under her stage name, Wrenn. The EP turned into a full-length album titled Hi, slated for release Tuesday, Nov. 4 with a performance at Nuçiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Space Friday, Nov. 7. Musically, the album is a pastiche of styles but centers largely on acoustic guitar histrionics, a presumably unwitting mash-up of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Bojanglesâ&#x20AC;? and Paul McCartneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junkâ&#x20AC;? (the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Laundromatâ&#x20AC;?), silly Amanda Palmer-style numbers, vocal scatting that goes nowhere and a dash of tUnE-yArDs. At 12 tracks, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entirely too long, although some songs might have been digestible on an EP release. For a record so convinced of its artiness, it should at least have the power to offend someone, but it makes no real artistic statement at all. Wrenn seems to have one eye in the mirror and the other on the spotlight, but would do good to just focus them both on the task of writing songs. Other things happening at the release show are a performance by classical pianist Kaylea Notarthomas, a performance by UGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cirque & Acrobatics Club and a breakdancing battle between B-Boy Killa Wes and B-Boy Moo. Doors are at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p. m. If you miss this and would like to catch Wrenn, head to the 40 Watt Club Friday, Nov. 21, when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll open for The Whigs.

Fare Thee Well: One of Athensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; only representatives of pure, old-school indie-pop is going away. Scooterbabe will play its final show Friday, Oct. 31 at an unnamed local DIY venue. However, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new Scooterbabe EP coming out this week, as well. The four-song record was recorded and mixed by Daniel DeSimone at Studio 1093 and mastered at The Glow Recording Studio by Jesse Mangum. Although you can check it out starting Oct. 28 via scooterbabe.bandcamp. com, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be a CD and cassette release soon courtesy of Pizza Tomb Records. Although the sound propagated by Scooterbabe was at one time ubiquitous and, because of this, became increasingly Wrenn irritating as lesser artists began to ape the genre, the fact is absolutely no one in Athens has played well-crafted, distortion-free pop of this type and caliber in a very long time. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss them.

Tell Your Friends: Moeke Records is planning a follow-up to its weekly single series with, uh, another series of singles. Summer Singles featured digitally released songs from 13 local bands, and each song was recorded and produced in less than four hours. The new series is to be produced with the same type of efficiency and speed but feature nonlocal artists touring through Athens. The idea is to simply get those folks into the Glow studio, have them lay down a track and then they can split town. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re familiar with Daytrotter and its live sessions, you can imagine this to be something like that. Pass the word along and get in touch via facebook.com/moekerecords. You can check out the previously released material at moekerecords.bandcamp.com.

Two for Flinching: Last week, I extolled the new album by Donny Knottsville, which features an all-star lineup of talents and contributors. One of those, Louie Larceny, dropped a new track last week. One side of what can be described a digital single, the track is named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chain Mail.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paired with the Donny Knottsville track â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hammer Games,â&#x20AC;? on which Larceny figured prominently. As a pair of good, solid rap tracks, they work quite well together, although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m slightly more generous to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chain Mail,â&#x20AC;? because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit mellower and not as obviously 1990s gangsta. Check â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em both out over at louielarceny.bandcamp.com.

FLAGPOLE.COM ∙ OCTOBER 29, 2014

HALLOWEEN (R) Director John Carpenter’s classic, seminal horror movie has one of the best, most chilling tag lines ever devised: “The Night He Came Home.” It’s like muttering the words, “in the deep, dark woods.” If neither one of those phrases puts a chill in you, perhaps the horror genre isn’t the place for your imagination to fester. Halloween was originally released in 1978, was a huge box office hit (one of the biggest independent features ever made) and went on to unleash a whole wave of so-called “slasher” movies throughout the late 1970s and earlyto-mid-1980s, stories about deranged psychopaths stalking and murdering scantily clad teenage girls (usually) before meeting their own grisly comeuppance. The Friday the 13th franchise, which raised the gore and nudity factor for its youth-oriented audience, rivals Halloween in popularity but not in artistry or chills. Carpenter’s movie plays out like an urban legend: A young boy, Michael Myers, murders his sister on Halloween and is incarcerated in a mental institution. Fifteen years later, Myers violently escapes the facility and heads straight for his hometown, Haddonfield, IL. His only ambition? Kill everyone he can. Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance), Myers’ psychiatrist, fears that his patient is more than human, something supernatural and evil. Myers, who roams his hometown wearing an eerie white mask and a dark jumpsuit, focuses on good-girl teenager Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) as his main prize, though plenty of others are killed during his hunt. There have been more disturbing and graphically violent horror movies before and after (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Black Christmas, Maniac, et al), but the vast majority of them are outclassed by Carpenter’s skill at generating suspense and his conjuring of mood. Halloween is also beautifully composed and shot. There are scenes in the movie—Myers (known as “The Shape” in the credits) standing watching Laurie in broad daylight, partly hidden by white sheets blowing in the wind; a child watching in disbelief as Myers carries a body from the house across the street; Myers rising from the dead in the background while an exhausted Laurie cries in the foreground, oblivious to what is coming next. Carpenter’s use of the widescreen frame is superb throughout (as it is in many of his features), and Halloween is definitely an experience for the big screen. Halloween is, appropriately enough, the final movie of Ciné’s month-long “Schlocktoberfest” of classic horror movies, and it screens Oct. 30 and 31. [Derek Hill] OUIJA (PG-13) With Annabelle still hanging around theaters, horror gets a new addition with a big-screen version of the spirit board game, Ouija. After a pretty young blond (Shelley Hennig) apparently kills herself, her friends, led by Laine (Olivia Cooke, AMC’s “Bates Motel”), decide to investigate by using the dead friend’s spirit board to contact her. Unfortunately, whom they contact is a dangerous, angry ghost that starts killing off the group one by one. The Possession’s Stiles White directs and cowrites Ouija like a standard ‘80s slasher flick (where are these kids’ parents?), with an invisible killer à la Final Destination. The movie has the most scary fun when the teens are midséance. One wishes White and cowriter Juliet Snowden could have forced a few more spiritboard sequences into the movie. The tension when Laine looks through the planchette, the window through which one can view these

ghosts, is much stronger than the conventional haunted-house sequence that dominates the final act. Positively, the filmmaking duo conjures the vibe of the original Nightmare on Elm Street, minus the scares, ingenious effects and set pieces or Freddy. Cooke makes a great Nancy, as well. Anyone who has seen “Bates” or The Quiet Ones knows Cooke can be exceptional in spite of the material. Here, she’s strong and still relatively high schoolish. The brief appearances by Nightmare alum Lin Shaye (sister of Nightmare producer and

When audiences meet Wick, he’s a sad dude. His wife (Bridget Moynihan, only seen in flashbacks) has died, leaving him a sweet puppy and his beloved muscle car. But some Russian goons (led by “Game of Thrones”’ Theon Greyjoy, aka Alfie Allen) make the mistake of reawakening this retired killer’s murderous professionalism. Head Russian goon (Michael Nyqvist, the Swedish language version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Mikael Blomkvist) is so terrified he puts a bounty on his former employee’s head; he even encourages John Wick’s old pal, Marcus (Willem Dafoe), to tackle the task. Halloween John Wick has a lot of strengths, the biggest of which may be its cast. Reeves, Nyqvist and Dafoe are joined by Lance Reddick, Adrianne Palicki, Dean “Mayhem” Winters, John Leguizamo and Ian McShane as the proprietor of a hitman hotel that doubles as a sanctuary. Do not bring business into The Continental; it will end badly. First-time direc#@%*!!!

The Devil Makes Three, The Cave Singers

Georgia Theatre · 7:30 p.m. · $15 The Devil Makes Three’s name sounds far more sinister than its songs. Sure, the group has its fair share of tunes about death and other themes fitting for the Halloween season, but it’s hard to get too dark and spooky with acoustic guitar, banjo and upright bass. Though the band hails from Brattleboro, VT, its sound would have felt at home in Dust Bowl-era middleAmerica. The trio’s latest release, I’m a Stranger Here, was produced by Buddy Miller and recorded at the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach’s Nashville studio. The Devil Makes Three has a reputation for shining in a live setting, so expect polished renditions of songs tailor-made for Americana enthusiasts. [Dan Mistich] MUSIC | Thursday, Oct. 30

Chief Scout, Concord America, Red Sky Days, Small Beige Girl

Max · 10 p.m. Athens-via-Suwanee singer-songwriter Trey Rosenkampff has fast made a name for himself in regional circles via Chief Scout, his houseshow-ready garage-rock project that takes the unbridled energy of early Black Keys and fuses it with the arena-ready hooks of, well, latter-era Black Keys. Except, Chief Scout doesn’t sound like the Black Keys. Sure, there are high-octane, vaguely bluesy guitar heroics involved. But the 20-year-old Rosenkampff’s is a more inclusive and incisive brand of retro-rock, not to mention fresher all around. Dig the new single “Run Away From Home,” which features a catchy truth bomb of a chorus: “Run away from the ones you love/ ‘Cause if you stick around for too long/ You ain’t gonna love them anymore.” [Gabe Vodicka] ART | Sunday, Nov. 2

Duane Paxson Opening Reception

Athens Academy · 2–4 p.m. · FREE! Well versed in a variety of media, Duana Paxson combines natural forms like branches and vines with materials such as steel, fiberglass, textured resin and fragments of ceramics to create hybrid sculptures. Paxson’s art career began in the early ’80s after receiving an MFA from the University of Alabama with a major in sculpture and a minor in ceramics. A former clarinet player and music student, he incorporates the free-form nature of music into many of his pieces. Currently cranking out works from his studio in Comer, GA, Paxson has participated in nearly 100 exhibitions across the country.

His solo show will be on view in the Myers Gallery through Friday, Jan. 23. Additional displays at Athens Academy present latheturned wooden bowls by John Callinan and works by students attending North Oconee High School. [Jessica Smith]

Hi-Lo Lounge · 8 p.m. · $5 I’m not going to not mention Tom Petty and Big Star, because, c’mon, Nude Beach’s incredible new double album, 77, oozes those and other easy-to-identify influences from every dirt-clogged pore. But don’t let all the hero worship distract you from the fact that the Brooklyn-based trio has its own thing going in the particular way it blends classic rock sensibility with powerpop goodness and scrappy punk action. Plenty of bands do this or something similar in 2014; very few do it well. Nude Beach is near the top of the list. A mustsee potpourri of local and touring punks rounds out Sunday’s stacked bill.

Visiting Artist Lecture: Janice Kerbel

Lamar Dodd School of Art · 5:30 p.m. · FREE! Ranging from radio plays to print-based works to installations of sound and light, the work of London-based Canadian artist Janice Kerbel explores the indefinite space between reality and fiction. After extensively researching historical, cultural and environmental sources, she carefully constructs considerably ordinary yet imaginary scenarios that take the form of scripts, announcements, proposals and plans. Past projects include “Kill the Workers!,” a silent play written solely for stage lights in which the central protagonist, naturally performed by a spotlight, longs to join the worker lights in anonymity. An earlier installation, “Ballgame (Innings 1–3),” consisted of a single speaker playing the commentary of a live baseball game. Though the players’ average performance was believable, the script was entirely fictional, serving as a study on jargon and language rather than the dramatic highs and lows of the sport. Through her works, Kerbel attempts to emphasize the details of experience in new ways. [JS]

Advice for Life’s Persistent Questions

Matchmaking. Kind-of.

american mannequins, scott low and the southern bouillon and

After being unlucky in love for some time, I’ve recently changed jobs, and several coworkers are trying to set me up with not one but two eligible male employees. I work in the kind of setting where dating among coworkers is not frowned upon, and I find both to be intriguing guys, so I’m interested. The only problem is my friends playing matchmaker don’t seem to have put much effort in beyond, “I think you should date so-and-so,” and I’m not sure if the attraction is mutual with either candidate. Is there a way I can subtly move things along without seeming overbearing? Considering it was both of my coworkers’ ideas and not mine (if anything, dating has been pretty far from my mind recently), I don’t feel like I’m in much a position to do anything here. Uncertain

we were both visiting other people, we didn’t really have the opportunity to spend much time together beyond that one party (where we did spend basically the entire time together, almost to the point of being rude to our other friends). We all got together one other time during the week that I was there, but Sam and I didn’t get to spend any time one-on-one, and the awkwardness of barely knowing (but liking) each other in front of all our mutual friends didn’t help anything. Sam and I ended up kissing once, and we talked about him coming to see me or viceversa. We’ve been apart about four weeks, and we’re still texting a lot and emailing some. My question: Is it even worth it for me to make plans to see him or for him to come here? I really enjoyed him and am still excited to be talking to him, but I don’t see where this could go. Even if we do get along great in person, we live on opposite coasts. I’m a little reluctant to get pulled into a long-distance relationship. I kind of feel like I should write this off to vacation fun and get on with my life here. Don’t you think? Wavering

It sounds like your coworkers aren’t playing matchmaker so much as they’re making semi-informed suggestions about other single people they know. Which is fine, but, as you point out, doesn’t really move things Whaaaat?? Write off along for you. someone you met and It also sounds like liked who also seemed to you’re interested but not like you? Someone who completely bowled over by lives in an awesome city either of these potential and is inviting you to dates. This is also fine but visit? Someone you know takes some urgency out of is probably not a killer the situation. Since you’re because he’s been vetted not really interested in by a friend of a friend of a pursuing either of these friend? Why would you do guys full-tilt and you all that? work together and you’re If your life here is full interested in dating either and complete and you’re or both of them, I advise not interested in dating, slow-playing it a little bit then yes, write this guy and letting him/them come Please send your questions to off. If the perspective of a to you. few weeks has helped you The next time your advice@flagpole.com or see he wasn’t so right for friends bring up the idea flagpole.com/getadvice you, then yes, write him of your dating one of these off. But I don’t get either guys (or, if you don’t want of those things from your letter. It sounds like to wait, the next time you gently steer the you liked him and are curious to get to know conversation in that direction), dig a little him a little more. Ask your friend to ask her bit. Ask if your friends are sure he’s single, husband to ask his friend about Sam. To make if they know him well, why they think you sure he’s not in a relationship and not a serial should date him, etc. Dig enough that they killer. If those tests come back negative, I know you’re a little bit interested. Sometimes say plan a trip. (A kind of short one—three that’s all it takes to get things going. They or four days.) Either there or here, whichever mention something to another mutual friend you prefer. Traveling there sounds like fun and or to the guy himself, he knows you’re a showing him around here would also be fun. little bit interested and then things start to Once you spend some time together, you’ll happen. know more clearly whether you want to pursue I suspect the wheels are already in motion. things.
