he most important national story two weeks ago was a detailed, legislatively mandated report from the U.S. Global Change Research Program called the Third National Climate Assessment, which found that “independent records from weather stations, satellites, ocean buoys, tide gauges, and many other data sources all confirm that our nation, like the rest of the world, is warming. Precipitation patterns are changing, sea level is rising, the oceans are becoming more acidic, and the frequency and intensity of some extreme weather events are increasing. Many lines of independent evidence demonstrate that the rapid warming of the past half-century is due primarily to human activities.” Many of these changes, the report warned, “are detrimental, largely because our society and its infrastructure were designed for the climate that we have had, not the rapidly changing climate we now have and can expect in the future.” The most important national story last week came from two new scientific papers that reported that major glaciers of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet have destabilized, and their collapse, according to NASA scientists, “appears unstoppable.” When that ice sheet melts, worldwide sea levels could rise up 13 feet, which will be, in a word, catastrophic — and just be the beginning. Scientists estimate that human activities have already set in motion a sea rise of 69 feet, which would fundamentally alter civilization as we know it, especially in low-lying areas like Florida. This stuff is no longer theoretical. It is happening right now, all around us, every day. We can observe it. We can study it. And as temperatures rise and oceans warm and sea ice melts and oceans rise, we will suffer the ramifications. There’s still plenty of room to debate solutions. There is not, however, any more room for climate denialism, not when so much is at stake. Except, of course, if you’re a Republican senator who wants to run for president in a party in thrall to fossil fuel interests. Enter Marco Rubio, who a few years ago dodged a question about the Earth’s age by saying, “I’m not a scientist, man,” but who now feels qualified to tell us that the overwhelming consensus of People Who Know What They’re Talking About is wrong, because he says so: “I don’t agree with the notion that some are putting out there, including scientists, that somehow there are actions we can take today that would actually have an impact on what’s happening in our climate,” the Florida senator told ABC News. A few days later, Rubio tried to walk back that particular idiocy, saying that even if the U.S. took action to address carbon pollution, other parts of the world wouldn’t, so what’s the point? (Fact: The U.S. accounts for 19 percent of worldwide carbon emissions.) And then, in an interview with Sean Hannity (naturally), Rubio inveighed on how prochoice liberals are the ones who actually hate science, because they deny that life begins at conception. (Fact: There’s a difference between life and personhood.) Climate change is the biggest and most important challenge of the 21st Century, not something to be shrugged away. By suggesting that it can be, Rubio only revealed how vacuous he really is. Jeffrey C. Billman twitter/jeffreybillman firstname.lastname@example.org
MAIL Mindless Liberals
It is pathetic that these mindless liberals [News Buzz, “Keep Calm and Sine Die,” Jeffrey C. Billman and Susan Cooper Eastman, May 7] have a voice in Folio Weekly to spout their teenaged understanding of economics. What other explanation could there be for their lack of awareness that Florida’s debt has declined continuously while Gov. Scott has been in office, unemployment has declined continuously (and not because people have dropped out of the workforce, like Obama’s great accomplishment), and hundreds of thousands of new jobs have been created, all while taxes have been reduced? They complain about the “GOP-dominated Legislature” passing “the largest budget in state history,” but fail to mention that it was passed unanimously in the Senate, which includes 14 Democrats. No, that might make Gov. Scott “less cretinous,” apparently. Gee, calling Gov. Scott a cretin doesn’t sound defamatory at all. They then go on to complain about all the places where the Legislature didn’t spend money. They lament the lack of the expansion of Medicaid for the “working poor,” while ignoring the reality that the federal government only borrows money from future generations to pay for the states’ expanded Medicaid for a period of three years, and then saddles the states with the additional financial burden. They also ignore the abject failure of their (presumed) beloved Obamacare, with more people being kicked off their healthcare insurance plans than have actually been able to sign up and pay (at increased costs) for their replacement plans. All while hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on state exchanges which seem to be giving up on a weekly basis, and passing that burden back onto the federal government, i.e., all taxpayers. So which is it, geniuses? More spending, or less? Oh, I remember now, more taxes for their Marxist utopia, no doubt. They further lament that “it’s still totally cool to fire someone for being gay,” which, of course, it’s not, but that doesn’t fit their narrative. They complain about no online voting (fraud) system being developed to ensure democracy, but love that courts legislate from the bench and overturn the wishes of the voters in numerous states, even the left-coast California, and claim that banning marriage between homosexuals is illegal. They proclaim that the “cretin” Gov. Scott only reduced taxes because it’s an election year and needs to bolster his election changes, but fail to mention real flip-floppers, like Obama and Clinton who were for marriage between a man and a woman before they were against it, in election years, not to mention the complete idiocy of their statement given the flopping fish that is Charlie Crist: Who knows what he’ll be tomorrow or who he’ll sell out for a Senate seat? Their ridiculous opinion piece continues ad nauseam, but you get the idea. Craig Greenhagen
Gimme Weed, Please
I read your article about drug legalization and the vet with PTSD [Editor’s Note, “How Marijuana Saved a Life,” Jeffrey C. Billman, April 30]. I can most definitely relate to it as a disabled war vet myself, having served in the U.S. Navy from 1985-1995. I was in Operation Desert Storm. Needless to say, I saw some nasty stuff. I’ve been going to the VA since 1995. They just diagnosed me with PTSD. Of course, I’m not being compensated for it. All I got was an apology. Beside the trauma I suffered mentally, I have numerous medical problems, including a
broken back, a prosthetic knee and two broken wrists. The VA seems to be stingy when it comes to pain medication, at least in my case. Most doctors won’t prescribe it, or give you something very weak. They also won’t give you enough to actually relieve the pain. I’m not sure why there’s such a problem or stigma when it comes to prescription painkillers. It’s not like my pain is imaginary or made up. I’ve had numerous surgeries, maybe 20 or more, including back surgery in 2010, the knee in 2011, and a cardiac procedure in 2012 and again last week. Since the back surgery, I was getting Percoset and numerous injections in my back from a doctor in town. I stopped getting it about eight months ago. The VA found out, and cut me off from narcotics. Now, I get nothing from them for pain. This forced me back to the pain clinics in town. The problem is the difficulty obtaining painkillers. If you’re not a regular customer at a pharmacy, you won’t be able to get painkillers, period. Sometimes, they just don’t have any, forcing you to wait as long as 10 days. When that happens, you go through withdrawals, which is like kicking heroin. My pain is so severe at times, I broke both my wrists punching steel cabinets to relieve the pain in my back. My primary care doctor at the VA won’t listen to me at all. Now, he looks at me like I’m a junkie just trying to score. If it weren’t for drug screening, I could use marijuana, which I’m sure would help, but I can’t. The government wants to you to buy and use their drugs, but you have to jump through hoops to get them. I really enjoyed your article, and I really hope things change. The money that can be saved from busting people for weed and the revenue and jobs that can be generated from legalization are things we need. Rich E
Correction Last week’s story “Lock ’Em Up,” by Susan Cooper Eastman and Derek Kinner, reported that, in a review of juvenile diversion cases, the Public Defender’s Office found that “almost 40 percent involved batteries or incidents of domestic violence.” That percentage also included charges of resisting arrest without violence. In addition, we reported that Duval County Schools Superintendent Nikolai Vitti signed a 2012 memorandum of understanding supporting the expansion of civil citations. While he does support the expansion, he had not yet taken the position at the school district and was not party to the MOU. Finally, we made mention of 147 non-arrest diversions in addition to the civil citations issued in the Fourth Judicial Circuit. We should clarify that these 147 cases were in Duval County. Data from the circuit’s other counties were not immediately available.

NEWS BUZZ Angela Corey, Hackles Up
Angela Corey is not happy — not happy with the Times-Union, not happy with us, just not happy. The state attorney — who, incidentally, once said of a Folio Weekly reporter, “I understand her need to spit venom. I do. I finally saw her for the first time” — believes that she is being unfairly maligned, perhaps maliciously, in the local press over her stances on civil citations for juvenile offenders [News, “Lock ’Em Up,” Susan Cooper Eastman and Derek Kinner, May 14] and transparency [Editor’s Note, “A Culture of Secrecy,” Jeffrey C. Billman, May 7]. From Corey’s perspective, we in the media have it out for her, or we just don’t understand, or we’re stirring up controversy where none exists, or something. And she’s not happy. She pleaded her case last week in a pleasant half-hour conversation with this magazine’s editor (more on that in a second). Her backand-forth with Frank Denton, the TimesUnion’s editor — a conversation documented in emails that became public record — was considerably less pleasant, and liberally dosed with demands for apologies and implicit threats of legal action and over an editorial of which Corey didn’t approve. It’s worth remembering that Corey is a public official, and these are matters of public interest, so the bar for libel is so extraordinarily high that most aggrieved politicians don’t even bother with such threats for anything short of calling them pedophiles. Not so for Angela Corey, possessed as she is of a hair-trigger sensitivity to even the slightest hint of criticism. (Recall the time she threatened to sue Alan Dershowitz and Harvard Law School for his critique of her handling of the Zimmerman case?) And so, on May 1, when the T-U published an editorial slamming Corey for removing one of its reporters from a search committee’s deliberations over candidates for Jacksonville’s new medical examiner, Corey pounced: “It is unconscionable that your newspaper has not taken responsibility for its libelous actions,” she began. She did not “order” the reporter out of the room; no, she “announced the afternoon break and excused your reporter,” which is completely different somehow. “Your obvious malicious agenda has now been further solidifi ed for your readers.” Even though the search committee’s lawyer

Angela Corey later reached the conclusion that, actually, the T-U had a right to be there after all, Corey insists she’s being maligned because the rules are ambiguous, and they’d received different advice from other lawyers earlier. And anyway, the committee’s recommendation has two more layers to go through — the state Medical Examiners Commission and then the governor — so what’s the big deal? Denton declined her invitation to, um, retract the newspaper’s opinion. The case law, he responded, wasn’t that ambiguous at all. “We referred to the meeting as ‘secret’ because it was — not because the public was unaware of the meeting being held but because the public was barred from the meeting itself — which was ‘kept from knowledge or view,’ to use Webster’s primary definition of secret.” Kicked the hornet’s nest, he did. “I ask you to have someone objective do an honest evaluation of the articles that you have written about me and this office,” Corey snapped, later adding, “Many citizens are now voicing their concern over your obvious biased agenda and wondering why,” and “Are you sure your reporter was really there to get the truth disseminated to the public? … By your opinion piece, you have gratuitously tarnished the good members of this committee and the process in which the committee engaged. We deserve a retraction and an apology. The fact that you
and your lawyers refuse to do so will never obscure the truth for those of us who know, sadly [sic] it will only continue to mislead the readers to whom you owe a duty of accurate and fair reporting.” Jacksonville City Council member Robin Lumb, a member of that committee not named in the editorial, was also less than pleased. “Because you continue to assert your right to smear me and other members of the committee with false charges I will repeat my request for a retraction and apology,” she wrote to Denton. “If you allow the editorial to stand as written you will have branded me, without any proof whatsoever, as someone who knowingly and intentionally violated the law. That is per se libel and defamation.” No retraction or apology (or lawsuit, so far as we can tell) was forthcoming. On May 12, Lumb wrote that, while “the editorial did not paint an accurate picture,” “I consider the matter closed.” In her conversation with us, Corey voiced many of the same objections to the Editor’s Note that made note of that search committee meeting. There was nothing malicious about the committee’s intent, just a difference of opinion on what the law required. The committee was going to discuss the background checks and potential medical issues of the job contenders, and they weren’t sure that stuff should be aired in public. (You could ask — and we did — why, if there’s any ambiguity, the default isn’t toward openness. Corey responded that the committee’s lawyers had previously advised against public deliberations, and they were just acting on that advice.) And because the all-volunteer committee has been subjected to this public scrutiny, Corey frets, next time people won’t be so willing to sign up. “The true facts weren’t getting out there,” Corey says. As for our civil citations story, Corey says that there, too, she is being misrepresented. Yes, she opposes the City Council’s nonbinding resolution to expand their use — a resolution the Council did not vote on as expected last week — but she has long supported the purpose behind them. In 2009, she points out, she called for their expansion outside of the School District and onto the streets, because that’s only fair. Corey also reiterated that she believes her office’s other diversion programs work just as well, so why is everyone so hung up on civil citations? “I’m not sure why it’s still a topic,” she says. Corey also disputed some of the numbers in the story (we double-checked, and they’re correct*), and wondered why no one seems interested in her office’s other diversion programs (which the story mentioned) or the positive results they produce, or the fact that the cops, not her, ultimately make decisions about whom to cite and whom to arrest. “I think this article is not fair to this office,” Corey says. “I really, truly don’t understand it.”
professor of economics at Florida State College of Jacksonville who now runs the consulting firm The Ekonomists. Drawing on One Spark’s data from last month’s festival, Markl offers what he believes is the first quantitative assessment of One Spark creators’ success, essentially comparing creators’ project goals to what they actually received. In total, Markl reports, One Spark creators sought a total of more than $99 million in funding. And in total, they came up $98,667,742 short. “One Spark funding represents 0.36% of the aggregate One Spark project funding goal,” he writes. Only 3 percent of projects reached their goals (and three of those five projects asked for $15 or less). Eighty-six percent, meanwhile, failed to achieve even a quarter of their goals. In comparison, Markl points out, 43.5 percent of Kickstarter projects reach their targets. The result, factoring in supplies and time, is that most creators actually lost money on One Spark. The mean funding level was $598 (the median, $231), whereas most creators spent an estimated $753 to register, set up a booth and sit there (Markl assumes that creators’ time is worth Florida’s minimum hourly wage). Indeed, only 2 percent of projects took home more than $5,000. “That’s a sad reality no one’s talking about,” Markl tells us. There are a few caveats worth noting here: One, creators tended to ask for a lot of money, unrealistic sums, really — the mean goal was $162,881; the median, $24,000. It’s entirely likely that most creators never expected to pull in that much, and many just wanted exposure. In addition, Markl’s analysis doesn’t take into account the $3.25 million in potential capital investments for which creators could vie, because they vied for them alongside non-One Spark entrants. Markl insists he’s not trying to crap on One Spark. Rather, he was intrigued by a quote from Jags owner Shad Khan — “One Spark right now is an idea and it’s a great party … but now it’s got to generate measured results, companies, jobs and economic growth.” Markl says he just wanted to quantify that stuff: “I love One Spark,” he says, “but I was wondering, how much money do these guys get?” With a few exceptions, it seems, not much. “As the data reveal,” Markl’s report (available at onesparkimpact.org) says, “there is a disconnect between the financial needs of a One Spark creator & the financial capabilities of One Spark.” The city as a whole fared a little better. According to a report last week from the University of North Florida, the festival drew 260,000 people and pumped $1.8 million into the local economy — not as big a number as you’d hope from that many people, but it turns out that most attendees were locals and only 1,010 stayed in area hotels.
*Save for one clarification: 147 juveniles who weren’t given civil citations were put into other non-arrest diversion programs in Duval County, not throughout the Fourth Judicial Circuit.
You know who else is not happy, probably? Most of this year’s One Spark creators. At least, according to Chris Markl, a former associate

ATwenty MIRACLE ON ASHLEY STREET years after the city tried to knock it down, the Clara White Mission is still a storehouse for the people
he didn’t know what she was getting herself into. When Ju’Coby Pittman became president of the Clara White Mission in 1993, its West Ashley Street headquarters was trashed, and one of the chief goals of Mayor Ed Austin’s “River City Renaissance” plan was to flatten the LaVilla neighborhood where the Mission had stood for most of a century. “I remember your phone call your first day here, that night after work. You said, ‘Oh my God, what have I done?’” Meg Fisher, the Mission’s vice president since shortly after Pittman took the job, tells Pittman as they sit for an interview on the Mission’s second floor. Pittman had taken the helm of one of the most venerable humanitarian organizations in the city. But when interviewing for the job, she never made her way past the first floor. “There were years of donated items,” Pittman says. “Just stacks and stacks of stuff.” “Floor to ceiling,” Fisher adds. “You couldn’t get off of the elevator on the third floor. There were holes in the roof and rats running through the hallways.” But the deterioration of the Clara White Mission in the two decades after founder Eartha White’s death in 1974 was nothing compared to the threat it faced from the city of Jacksonville. Back then, it was an existential threat from Austin’s Renaissance. More recently, it’s the lingering threat of potentially crippling budget cuts. Through it all, the Clara White Mission has persevered even as LaVilla has all but vanished.
In 1902, in her mid-20s, Eartha White founded “the Colored Old Folks’ Home” on the Eastside in answer to a conspicuous absence of care for Jacksonville’s black population. By then, White had already finished a career as an opera singer. Since her mid-teens, she’d toured the United States and Europe singing with the Oriental American Opera Company. She’d returned to Jacksonville only after her fiancé James Jordan died shortly before their wedding in 1896, apparently of tuberculosis. Seventy-four years later, she told a New York Times reporter, “I never married. I was too busy. What man would put up with me running around the way I do?” That “running around” began when she herself contracted the land sale for a black school in Duval County’s far southern community of Bayard, organized the construction of the school and taught the first classes. Later, it included the founding of a tuberculosis hospital for blacks, an orphanage, an adoption agency and a home for “unwed mothers.” It included food and clothing drives, and in 1920 when women won the right to vote, voter registration drives. In 1940, White traveled to Chicago to meet with A. Philip Randolph, whom she’d known through most of his Jacksonville childhood, to help plan a March on Washington. (Randolph called off the march after President Roosevelt met with him and acceded to many of his demands.) White also resisted racist Florida legislation like that of the 1947 “White Primary Bill,” which would have prohibited black citizens from voting in primary elections. (The bill was proposed by Jacksonville state Sen. John Mathews, after 8 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014

whom the city would soon name a bridge.) Though the Clara White Mission dates its origin to Eartha White obtaining legal status for charitable work in 1904, she didn’t name her agency for her adoptive mother until 1928, eight years after Clara’s death. In fact, the work of the Mission really began even before the Old Folks’ Home, back in the soup kitchen the two women ran from their home on Eagle Street, now First Street, before the turn of the 20th Century. All throughout Eartha’s childhood, Clara used their home to feed and clothe others and collect gifts for poor children at Christmas. Eartha White’s long-term goal for the Mission was simply to keep evolving the humanitarianism she’d learned from her former-slave mother, whose motto was, “Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, for all the people you can, while you can.”
In promotional materials for the River City Renaissance, Austin claimed his plan would move Jacksonville past “the threshold to become the ‘Next Great American City,’” a promise the city’s mayors have made since before Hans Tanzler dubbed Jacksonville the “Bold New City of the South” in the late ’60s. Austin’s plan required the destruction of nearly 50 square blocks of LaVilla, a blighted, dense and mostly black urban neighborhood that had once been the cultural epicenter of segregated Jacksonville. Dissertations have been written on the musical and theatrical culture of LaVilla. More than a dozen such venues lined West Ashley Street in the 1920s, when blues and ragtime
guitarist Arthur “Blind” Blake recorded “Ashley Street Blues” with vocalist Leona Wilson. In the early 1930s, Eartha White bought the Globe Theater and turned it into the Clara White Mission. By the time Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat in 1955, Eartha was already 79 years old. During the 1960s, Jacksonville Mayor Haydon Burns vowed to fight integration and desegregation in any form, and the city experienced major race riots in 1960, 1964 and 1969. Many of the better-off residents and business leaders in LaVilla left the neighborhood. Throughout the ’70s, poverty and crime increased in LaVilla, and the neighborhood’s great Carpenter Gothic and Victorian houses decayed. The 1980s crack cocaine epidemic hit especially hard. In 1993, Austin saw LaVilla as an ugly “front door” to Downtown from Interstate 95. And city officials saw no reason the razing of LaVilla shouldn’t include the Mission. After all, it had been nearly 20 years since Eartha White had died, and the city had written the neighborhood off as a crack den and hotbed of prostitution. Pittman remembers how Frank Nero, then-director of the Downtown Development Authority, told her and Fisher that if they could get enough people interested in LaVilla, the city might be willing to reconsider. Fisher recalls City Council members suggesting, perhaps paradoxically, that if the Mission wanted to bring the city around, they might not want to have all those homeless people hanging around. The Mission got its reprieve thanks not to the city’s change of heart but to the Jacksonville Historic Preservation Commission, which helped it obtain a historic designation in 1993.
And the Mission found good fortune another way: As United Way prepared to exit its role as the Mission’s last remaining substantial funding source, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund stepped in. The fund still operates as the bequest of one of Jacksonville’s wealthiest residents in its history. The rest of LaVilla was not so fortunate. While the Mission stood, blocks of tall houses, old commercial buildings, theaters, restaurants and bars were demolished. In return for the loss of the neighborhood, the mayor’s office promised an enormous recreation center, stimulus money for new Downtown housing, and a “greenbelt” between the interstate and Downtown. The city delivered only on the greenbelt, and then only in the form of empty fields where all the buildings had once stood. In Eartha White’s time, the Mission was the center of LaVilla and of much of black Jacksonville. The building housed the Works Progress Administration offices to which Zora Neale Hurston and Stetson Kennedy reported, Florida newsrooms for national black news outlets, and everything from daily feedings of the homeless to Red Cross programs and quilting bees. Tragically, little of LaVilla remains, and it’s hard to even imagine the once-thriving urban neighborhood it was. Meanwhile, Ju’Coby Pittman has developed the Mission into a successful nonprofit that works with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other nonprofits — and the very city of Jacksonville that once sought to tear it down.
In Pittman’s second year, the Mission hosted a fund-raising block party it called “the
NEWS Miracle on Ashley Street.” They raised $5,000. This Friday, May 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Mission celebrates the Miracle’s 20th incarnation. The Mission’s culinary students will prepare and serve the food, and with tickets priced at $25, Pittman expects to raise between $40,000 and $45,000. While the Mission’s board once fretted over the purchase of a single secondhand station wagon for Eartha White, funding allocations today support its culinary and janitorial training programs, daily feedings of the homeless, the two farms it operates on the city’s Northside, and projects like the two historic Beaver Street buildings to be developed into veterans’ services and housing facilities. Twenty years back, Pittman says, “A fundraiser was a fish fry and a car wash.” Now Pittman’s running for the District 9 City Council seat long held by the retiring Warren Jones. She says it was the importance of nonprofit organizations that convinced her to run for City Council — a body that, in tough times, can see their funding as expendable. Last year’s budget cuts threatened to take around $325,000 from the Mission’s $2.6 million annual operating budget. “When the Council put the Mission below the line, and employment numbers above the line, I’m thinking, ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’” Pittman says. Though the funds were reinstated, and none of the Mission’s students was affected, it was a nerve-racking time, Pittman says: “Students who were about to graduate would’ve suddenly had the rug pulled out from under them.” Pittman grew up in Blodgett Homes, at the time a notorious housing project, but she nonetheless remembers a sense of community and her grandmother’s strength and status. It was in part due to the influence of her grandmother that Pittman had the courage to take over an institution seemingly headed for disaster, founded by perhaps the most powerful woman in the city’s history. If she wins Jones’ seat next year, Pittman says, “It will be the second time I’ve stepped into some mighty big shoes.”
Richard McKissick is almost 90 years old and meticulously fashionable. He wears bow ties and silk vests and spectator shoes. He’s been speaking through an electrolarynx since his battle with throat cancer in the 1990s. More than half a century ago, he managed both the Strand and Roosevelt theaters in LaVilla. “I lived in a tall residential building right behind the Clara White Mission, and I’d see Miss White all the time,” McKissick says. “She had a great deal of influence and power, but you wouldn’t know it to look at her. Her clothes were always tattered. She didn’t eat enough.” Eartha White wore clothes from the Mission’s donation piles, she lived in the Mission among the homeless and dispossessed, and she frequently gave away the meal she was about to eat. These are comments that I’ve heard again and again from people I’ve interviewed, in letters and in documents I’ve unearthed in research for my book about Eartha White, to be released in the fall. Even the story of her naming carried a wonderful Old-Testament-prophet kind of mythos. Supposedly, her mother, the former slave Clara White, had already lost 12 children before becoming pregnant with Eartha. One day, as Clara laundered clothes in an old metal tub outside on her front porch, her aging father and the much-older former-slave preacher Henry Harrison came to Clara to name her
baby. Clara asked them how they knew she was pregnant. Her father wanted his granddaughter named for Mary Magdalene, the repentant prostitute, but Harrison wanted to name the baby after the Earth because, he said, she would become the “storehouse for the people.” Clara told the men that if her baby lived, she would give her “the whole name,” Eartha Mary Magdalene White. But the truth, which University of North Florida historian Daniel Schafer first wrote about in the 1970s, is far different. Eartha White, adopted by Clara, was the daughter of Mollie Chapman, a black servant. Her father was Guy Stockton, a lackluster member of one of the wealthiest families in the area. Legends of wealthy white connections and secret wealth clung to Eartha White all her life. But at her death, what little wealth she had was almost entirely tied up in property, the sale of which barely settled the Mission’s debt.
Shanek Bostic, a single mother of six children, came to the Clara White Mission because she wanted to take charge of her life and her children’s futures. She enrolled in the Mission’s Janitorial Training & Construction Maintenance program, which, combined with the Mission’s Culinary Apprenticeship Program, has a 71 percent transference rate to employment. Both programs consist of a 20-week full-time intensive session. Bostic’s class did everything from buffing floors to repairing sinks to speaking to the class. They built the tool shed and greenhouse in the culinary garden adjacent to the Mission. They also built and painted a fence out at White Harvest Farms, which the Mission operates on Moncrief Road. When Bostic finished the program, she got a business license to clean homes and do small repairs. “We all worked together like a family,” Bostic says. “We learned a lot, and supported each other, and felt very cared for.” Eartha White operated a laundry and a janitorial service, and supported the poor with gardening and urban farming. In fact, the story of White Harvest Farms is a fitting metaphor for the Clara White Mission’s resurgence. White opened the Moncrief Road property as a black recreational and swimming facility in 1943. Within five years, the city began using land that abutted White’s property to dump incinerator ash full of mercury, lead and other toxins. Nearly six decades later, the Mission and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection worked to rid that property of contaminants and bring healthy soil to Eartha White’s former land. The result is the 11-acre White Harvest Farms, which thrives in the food desert along Moncrief Road. The Mission’s culinary students help plant and later prepare the farm’s crops, and the farm is developing a community garden and attached farmer’s market scheduled to open later this year. Walking through White Harvest Farms, that original naming myth — that Eartha was to be a “storehouse for the people” — resonates beautifully. Pittman and Fisher both say that the Mission’s newest developments all end up returning to Eartha White’s original ideas that, in Fisher’s words, moving forward is like coming “full circle.” “Anytime we think we have a new idea,” Pittman says, “we end up finding out that somewhere along the way, Eartha White had already thought of it.”

2 MINUTES WITH … // DENNIS HO
LUCKY VON LU, OWNER/MANAGER/PERFORMER,
PROFESSOR WHISKEY’S TRAVELING BIZARRE BAZAAR Folio Weekly: What exactly are you guys? Lucky Von Lu: We are a vaudeville and burlesque producing company. How long have you done burlesque? I’ve been doing burlesque for five years; I’ve had the company for three. Do you recruit performers? We actually do not actively recruit performers. We go through a three-month training program with anyone who contacts us, we train them, we allow them to audition, and if they’re a good fit for the company, we hire them. What does training to be in a burlesque show entail? A lot of sewing! A lot more sewing than you’d expect. We don’t require that everybody have a full dance background because we like to be able to bring in people that have varied talents that wouldn’t normally accept this style of dance. But we do have a lot of sewing, a lot of sequining, and a lot of costume work. Costuming work is the first thing we teach you before we teach you to dance. So you require your performers to come up with their own costumes? We do. In this recent incarnation of burlesque, it’s very DIY. Also, the quality of costume you can get if you do it yourself versus the price is significantly better. Describe the variety of performers who try to get in touch with you. We have had everybody, with people from absolutely zero experience doing anything, people who graduated from art institutes, professional dancers, comedians, basically every walk of life. We have people who work white-collar jobs, we have full-time parents, we have a little bit of everything. Describe your audience. Rambunctious! And fun. We have the best audience in the world. Surprisingly more female than you’d think. Roughly about 65 percent. You’d think that because what we do is more risqué, you wouldn’t think that we get such a respectable audience, but we do. What does burlesque mean to you? All sorts of wonderful things. It’s an art form that deserves respect. I have 10 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
been in the adult entertainment business for many years, and I’ve always craved a certain amount of creativity that I wouldn’t normally get in, say, a traditional club setting. While doing these cabaret-style, vaudeville-style burlesque shows, I have not only the freedom to express myself in a manner I find fitting, but very joyfully, very theatrically. You say adult entertainment — is that what burlesque is? It’s a form of adult entertainment. It is a far end of the spectrum. You have traditional club dancers, which are pole dancers, and then you have ladies of illrepute, and then you have what we do, which is a little more theater-based. So it has a little tinge of naughtiness, but it still has its respectability well intact. How is Professor Whiskey different? When we perform, we add musicians, comedians, magicians, different variety acts in between the burlesque. Not only to give you a visual break from the monotony of seeing naked women all day — terrible, terrible monotony — but we feel it gives the artists more opportunity to express themselves in the same risqué style we promote. What was your first burlesque performance like? I was terrified! But I didn’t realize how addictive burlesque was. How wonderful it could be just to hear the applause. To know that costume that you worked 60 hours on for six minutes of glory was completely worth it. All of the burns from the glues and the soldering irons and the stabs from the sewing needles, totally 100 percent worth it. Have you gotten a lot of blowback from the city? Not at all! I’m not sure the city has noticed yet. But we’ll see. To be perfectly honest, the city doesn’t bother the fringe artists very much. I’m OK with that. Growth in our communities starts with the arts. The artists make everything beautiful and everyone enjoys it, and when they enjoy it they spend money. Dennis Ho email@example.com
THERE WILL BE BLOOD In Duval, the summer killing season has opened early this year
ummer is coming, and if this spring has been any indication, we’ll have yet another active season of shootings in Duval — and some will no doubt be fatal. Shootings everywhere. One at the Trailer Village Trailer Park on North Main a couple of weeks back. A killing out in Longbranch at a corner store. Thirty shots fired with an AK-47 from an Impala one April afternoon on Sixth Street near Myrtle — a fusillade that killed one of the two people shot. All told, April saw 33 shootings in the Bold New City of the South, more than one a day. Seven were fatal. In many cases — too many cases — no witnesses came forward. The cops, however, found a commonality: “Without any doubt, through our investigations we learned that so many of these shootings and murders are related to drugs,” JSO Director Tom Hackney told WJXT-TV. “This is from streetlevel marijuana to larger cocaine — a drug nexus is definitely there.” Indeed, many of the shootings you see — whether they’re on the Westside, off 103rd or in Eureka Gardens, or on the Northside or the Eastside — fall into that nexus. In recent decades, both in Florida and nationwide, we’ve seen an exponential growth in the prison population, much of it related to the nexus, in terms of not just violent crimes that arise from the inherent dangers of widely consumed black market products, but also the massive warehousing of nonviolent drug offenders. This has led global experts — such as those from the London School of Economics who authored a recent report called “Ending the Drug Wars” — to blame drug prohibition and advocate for solutions beyond the current jail-’em-and-fail-’em mentality. “The strategy has failed,” the authors write. “Evidence shows that drug prices have been declining while purity has been increasing. This has been despite drastic increases in global enforcement spending.” Global and local enforcement spending. Activists such as Florida TaxWatch have noted that the state’s prison population has
increased by 400 percent in the last 35 years, with spending up 1,200 percent over the same period. And you wonder why schools are underfunded. All that money spent, all those people in lockdown, and the so-called drug nexus lives on. And while the local murder rate has declined from its peak in 2007, the way 2014 is shaping up, we may well again approximate those dark years. It’s easy to blame drugs. It’s more difficult to find actual solutions. One such solution: increase police presence in perpetual blight zones, with officers standing by in the worst areas to deal with the inevitable. While speed-trap duty on the Southside is laudable, it does nothing to deal with the most hardcore crime in our city (as inherently unpredictable as outbreaks might be). More broadly, given the direct links between streetlevel violence and the lowlevel drug trade, we also need to take a long look at decriminalizing marijuana, which the state’s residents, if not its politicians, seem open to. (The most recent Quinnipiac poll reported that 53 percent of Floridians favored outright legalization, and almost 90 percent favored legalizing medical marijuana.) The best way to attack the drug nexus on Duval streets might be to remove a huge cash crop from the black market. We’ve tried other quick fixes. Recurrent gun buy-back events and gun bounties by the sheriff ’s office are fine. But the problem is, especially with weapons like AK-47s, a $1,000 bounty (or a $50 buy-back amount) simply isn’t sufficient incentive to get them off the street. And even if they did work? New guns would come from somewhere. They always do. As it stands now, the same spots get the same yellow tape and same blue lights on a regular basis, and no one — not the mayor’s office, not the JSO, not the City Council — has anything to say that couldn’t have come out of a press release five years ago. Until the policies change, we’re guaranteed the same results.
“This is from streetlevel marijuana to larger cocaine – a drug nexus is definitely there.”

…AND THE LIVIN’S EASY
here’s nothing quite like summer, right? The salty ocean air, the sweaty, suntanned bodies, the electric nights, the big cinematic blockbusters, the pool parties and afternoons on the boat, the barbecues, the kids out of school, the weekends spent lounging on the couch when you should be mowing your yard, because damn it’s hot out there and some basic cable channel is running a Star Wars marathon. There’s a lot to do (or, you know, be lazy and not do). We’re here to help: From sports to arts to movies to booze to food, what follows is our Ultimate Summer Guide, your one-stop-shop for, well, everything that matters. If you don’t have fun this summer, it’s your own fault.

BIGGER THAN A REDBOX
Summer 2014 movies you might actually see in a theaterr
WE HAVE THE perfect summer treat
Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
GODZILLA (May 16)
Full disclosure: I gave the Matthew Broderick Godzilla three stars out of five, mostly because I got this really cool sippy cup at the screening, see. So maybe I’m not the guy you wanna trust to handicap the chances that Warner Bros. has rebooted the big green galoot in a way that will prove more, uh, enduring. From what we’ve seen so far, this one sure looks more like a Godzilla movie than an ersatz Jurassic Park, which is a step in the right direction. But it’s probably too much to hope for that WB has gone all the way past Raymond Burr and back to the Hiroshima-haunted somberness of the franchise’s origins. Either way, get ready for another fun and challenging round of “What Is Ken Watanabe Saying?”
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST (May 23)
“I’ve watched a lot of people die,” Wolverine snarls in the trailer — a neat reminder of all the Brett Ratner-inflicted canon damage Bryan Singer is going to have to undo here. Hopes are high, given that Singer is the guy who made X-Men and X2: X-Men United (let’s just agree to forget that he then went on to make Superman Returns and that shitty Munsters pilot). And how time flies: Now it’s Jennifer Lawrence inspiring the coos of “Oooooh, they got her back,” while Halle Berry’s fleeting appearances in the promos engender whispers of “Hey, who did that used to be?”
A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST (May 30)
Future Kid: Dad, why did so many people hate Seth MacFarlane? Future Dad: Because us liberals are humorless sons of bitches, just like that tub of lard Limbaugh used to say. Future Kid: Then why did A Million Ways to Die in the West make a bajillion dollars anyway? Future Dad: Because progressives don’t pay for movies, son; we pirate them.

Ex-SNL cast member Jenny Slate portrays an up-and-coming standup comic in a movie that promises to provide a nuanced and sympathetic portrait of one woman’s lot in show business and society. In a world
where In a World actually got the accolades it deserved, maybe there’s room for another feminist hero in our meta-comedies.
22 JUMP STREET (June 13)
Magic Mike might get all the attention, but it was Channing Tatum’s surprisingly sensitive turn in the wonderful 21 Jump Street that showed he was going to be a major force to contend with. Two years later, he and Jonah Hill are back for a follow-up that looks set to do for obligatory sequels what the original did for obligatory reboots. This time, our heroes are on assignment in college, which opens the door to all kinds of winking self-exploitation. In other words, this shit just got unreal.

Learn everything that’s wrong with America’s debt-inducing system of higher education in this probing documentary. NOTE: No student passes accepted for this engagement.
THEY CAME TOGETHER
(limited release June 27)
The latest collaboration between Paul Rudd and filmmaker David Wain (Role Models) is a romcom spoof set in the high-stakes world of candy manufacturing. No matter how the movie turns out, we’re all but guaranteed two ancillary benefits: another airing of the non-Wings nonhit “Love Take Me Down to the Streets,” and Rudd yet again Rick-rolling Conan O’Brien with that ridiculous clip from Mac and Me. Never gets old!
THE PURGE: ANARCHY (July 18)
Last summer’s The Purge was crap with a conscience: home-invasion porn that actually had something worthwhile to say about 21st-century class warfare. Ten months later, its closing line — “This country has taken everything from me” — remains one of the most daring and bracingly honest observations I’ve heard in a major release. The flick made all sorts of serious, unexpected bank, too, which is why there’s already a sequel ready to go. Now, ask yourself: With a schedule that tight, which
element of the original do you think it was easier for the filmmakers to preserve: the wholesale bloodletting or the pithy social commentary? Yeah, me, too.
Come and enjoy a refreshing home made fruit ice pop. All natural dairy and gluten free. Have them dipped in our premium Belgian chocolate by Claude himself at our Hilden location
A MOST WANTED MAN
(limited release July 25)
This indie thriller, based on the writings of John le Carré, represents Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s last starring role to reach theaters. What’s that, you say? You could use a really good punchline here? Hey, then why don’t you make one?
GET ON UP
Chadwick Boseman (42’s Jackie Robinson) is Godfather of Soul James Brown in a biopic directed by The Help’s Tate Taylor. Apparently the role of onetime Brown confidant Al Sharpton is played by no one — hey, just like on TV!
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
While Warner Bros. abandons all hope of ever making a profitable DC Comics movie that doesn’t involve a trip to the Batcave, Disney does the nyah-nyah dance by anointing one of Marvel’s more obscure titles as its end-of-summer hopeful. And whaddaya know, the thing looks like it could be a monster hit, distilling the space opera, caped heroics and funny animalhood that represent the shared character of the Mouse House’s latter-day acquisitions. If those Star Wars sequels underperform somehow, don’t be surprised if Rocket Raccoon gets a makeover as a Disney Princess.
FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
A lot has happened in the nine years since the sequel to Frank Miller’s Sin City was announced: Robert Rodriguez fell in love with Machéte, and Miller’s solo directing debut, The Spirit, was such a bust he had to settle for establishing himself as the Islamophobic pariah of comics. So what’s left to anticipate now that a second Sin City is finally limping out of the gate? Well, there’s a featured role for Lady Gaga. And 3-D. And maybe I’ll get a sippy cup.

Sure, we’re a football town. But until the Jags get back on the field, you’ve still got plenty of options JACKSONVILLE SUNS
The Suns are much more sensible in their promotions than other hardball teams — the Seattle Mariners once offered free compost (seriously), and the Chicago White Sox’s Disco Demolition Night inspired a riot. But we still can’t help but chuckle at the Suns’ plans to welcome “Elvis Himselvis” and celebrate Jimmy Buffett Night (players wear Buffettstyle jerseys, which are auctioned off to benefit Wolfson Children’s Hospital), all in the span of three days, June 19-21. The hometown double-A squad is perhaps best known for its regular Thursday Night Throwdowns (“Buds for a Buck” and discounts on cocktails). When paired with College Ticket Discount Night ($5 admission), you can be sure the Baseball Grounds will be rocking every Thursday night, and probably hungover every Friday morning. More than 50 home games remain through Sept. 1 at Bragan Field, 301 A. Philip Randolph Blvd., Downtown, $6.50-$25.50 for single-game tickets, jaxsuns.com.
Local sports fans might feel like the city’s in a football nadir, but they’re looking in all the wrong places. Yes, the Gators were once-in-ageneration awful last season, and the Jaguars remain locked in a very, very long rebuild (Bortles to the rescue!). Meanwhile, like Bruce Willis in an action flick, the Jacksonville Sharks don’t even know how to fail. Since beginning play in 2010, the Sharks have won their division every year. They claimed the 2011 ArenaBowl championship and earlier that season celebrated quarterback Aaron Garcia’s 1,000th touchdown pass (not a misprint!). Some of these Sharks’ stats are so ridiculous, they sound made up (they’re not, I swear). The Sharks got off to a slow start this season, dropping five of their first seven games and sitting at 3-6 after their loss to Orlando on May 17, but don’t worry: They’ve got another nine to get their groove back — including a Monday night home tilt on July 14 against New Orleans also televised on ESPN2. Home 14 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
games are June 7 and 28, July 14 and 26 at Veterans Memorial Arena, 300 Randolph Blvd., Downtown, $12-$133 for single-game tickets, 621-0700, jaxsharks.com.
U.S. SOCCER SENDOFF MATCH
If you were one of the other 44,437 fans in the stands with me in 2012 when Landon Donovan and the U.S. sent those demoralized Scots back across the pond, give yourself one more pat on the back. That scene — raucous as it was — can’t compare to what we’ll experience on June 7, when Team USA takes on the Nigerians in a pre-World Cup sendoff match. The American stars will then be flying to Brazil and that “Group of Death” (scary, right?) with Germany, Portugal and Ghana. Send them off in style by making EverBank Field rumble. And hey, a sellout crowd could put Jacksonville in position to attract a World Cup match the next time FIFA brings the tournament to the U.S. Just don’t act like a hooligan. 6 p.m. June 7 at EverBank Field, 1 EverBank Drive, Downtown, $30-$350, 6336100, jaxevents.com.
THE ST. JOHNS SUP RUSH
If you don’t remember what’s SUP (see what we did there?), we’ll tell you. It’s standup paddleboarding, and you might recall our editor’s struggles with it — recounted in this year’s Outdoors Issue [“The Standing is the Hardest Part,” Jeffrey C. Billman, Feb. 25] — but don’t worry. You’re definitely more coordinated than he is. [Ed. note: Watch it, Johnson.] The three-race SUP Rush series is a collaboration between Black Creek Outfitters and the Rudder Club of Jacksonville (well-known for its 61 years organizing the Mug Race). The SUP series continues with divisions for beginners (1.5 miles), intermediates (3.5 miles) and elites (7 miles), 8:30 a.m. June 7 and Aug. 23 at The Rudder Club, 8533 Malaga Ave., Ortega, thestjohnssuprush.com.
BEACHES FINE ARTS SERIES TRIATHLONS
Artists and athletes might seem a strange combination. But they’ve worked well together since 1986, when the Beaches Fine Arts Series began a triathlon series to support its free concerts, arts exhibits and educational programs. Thousands have competed in a series now sanctioned by USA Triathlon. Even before BFAST added the Olympic distance, I’d watch swimmers come out of the Atlantic Ocean in the sprint triathlons tired but determined, with a 16.8-mile bike and 3.4-mile run still ahead of them. The sprint distance proves the ideal entry point for many of those just joining the sport, but the race has attracted its share of pros as well. Race series continues 7 a.m. June 14 (sprint only) and July 12 (sprint and Olympic) at Naval Station Mayport, $40-$50, bfasracing.org.
GREATER JACKSONVILLE KINGFISH TOURNAMENT
The kingfish tournament out of Sisters Creek is the Granddaddy of Them All — the largest of its kind in the country. But few moments are as entertaining as watching the junior anglers fish their tournament during the week, carrying kingfish bigger than they are off the dock. While the main event attracts massive 30-foot-plus boats, the little guy can still win it all, as Northeast Florida fishing legend Fred Morrow proved in 1995 on his 15-foot skiff. As clichéd as it sounds, the charities are the true winners. Jacksonville Marine Charities organizes the event and reports that it’s raised more than $650,000 over 33 years. Those funds have gone to (among others) the St. Johns Riverkeeper, Jacksonville University’s Marine Science Research Institute and Safe Harbor Boys Home. Tournament week, July 21-26 at Sisters Creek Park & Boat Ramp, 8203 Heckscher Drive, Northside, kingfishtournament.com. David Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org
GO INSIDE AND CULTURE YOURSELF It’s too damn hot at the beach, anyway
Venus In Fur
Growing up, contemporary artist Scott Ingram, known for his work on installations at the Des Moines Art Center and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, was influenced by revered modern architects in Chicago. Ingram creates paintings, sculpture, photography and functional art, using images from postcards, color plates and books with materials such as wood, limestone and sheetrock. The Atlanta artist’s exhibition Backdoor Formalism examines art and architecture in human environments. Reception with the artist, 6 p.m. May 22, is free at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville’s UNF Gallery, Downtown. The exhibit is on display through Aug. 24. 366-6911, mocajacksonville.org.
Arianda a Tony in 2012. The clueless Vanda barges in hours late, but somehow convinces the dispirited New York director to let her read before delivering the performance of a lifetime. The play-within-the-play is an adaptation of Venus in Furs, the 1870 novel by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (yes, of masochism). Meanwhile, Vanda apparently shares the name of the character for which she’s auditioning, and the mysteries and motives continue to pile up as the power struggle between director and aspiring actress play out. Daniel Austin, who drew raves for his acting in the stellar Angels in America earlier this year at Players by the Sea, makes his directorial debut. June 6-21 (8 p.m. Thur.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun.) on PBTS’s Studio Stage, Jax Beach, $20, 249-0289, playersbythesea.org.
Theatre Jacksonville concludes its 94th season with one of the world’s most beloved musicals, long overdue for a local stage production. Directed by Michael Lipp, Victor Hugo’s masterpiece is set in 19thcentury France but resonates in 21st-century America more than ever because of its focus on class warfare. The redemption of convict Jean Valjean proves that no deed — good or bad, it seems — can go unpunished, and Les Mis packs an emotional punch unlike any other musical. June 6-22 (7:30 p.m. Thur., 8 p.m. Fri. and Sat., 2 p.m. Sun.) at Theatre Jacksonville, San Marco, $20-$25, 396-4425, theatrejax.com.

AJENNda Productions presents a collaboration of paintings and performance in the first of a planned series of unCoRKed events. Actor Eva Matthews performs excerpts of a memoir now being written by Jennifer Chase, visual artist Tony Wood (best known for works on the human figure) presents paintings inspired by both the performance and written work, and Southern urban folk artist Lauren Fincham joins Chase to play live music. 8 p.m. June 13 and 14 at CoRK North Gallery, 603 King St., Riverside, $10 in advance, $12 at the door, artful.ly/store/events/2806.
A cast full of fresh faces to the local theater scene brings Moisés Kaufman’s 33 Variations to life for The 5 & Dime, A Theatre Company. After being diagnosed with ALS, musicologist Katherine Brandt (Sinda Nichols) devotes her time to learning what inspired Beethoven’s late-life obsession of creating variations of the Diabelli waltz. Katherine’s focus is a sharp contrast to the philosophy of her spirited daughter Clara (Kristen Walsh), who has commitment issues in her work and romantic life. The action shifts from 2010 to Beethoven’s time, as the ailing composer (Jason Woods) deals with his deafness while writing the variations. Director Lee Hamby and production manager Zeina Salame stage the drama, shifting between the early 19th Century and present day and from New York City to Bonn to Vienna. Performances 7:30 p.m. July 18, 19, 25 and 26 and 2 p.m. July 20 and 27 at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Riverside, the5anddime.org.

COOL OFF WITH THESE 5 LOCAL TREATS
BOOZE THE HEAT AWAY It’s hot out there. Here are four unique summer cocktails to help you chill out
From popsicles to smoothies, we’ve got you covered THE HYPPO (ST. AUGUSTINE) Popsicles There’s no cooler way to escape the fury of a scorching sun than downing a nice, cold popsicle before it furiously drips down your chin. It’s a quintessential summer experience. These locally made artisan-crafted pops tout funky gourmet flavors sure to appease all palates – strawberry datil, pineapple cilantro and Riesling pear, to name a few. Grab one and stick to the shaded areas throughout the historic district of St. Augustine.
NATIVE SUN (SOUTHSIDE, MANDARIN) Raw Tropijito Smoothie What could be better than a little taste of the tropics? This flavorful, hydrating smoothie packs fresh mint, pineapple, mango and lime, along with agave nectar for a little kick of sweetness. The combination of mint and lime really sets this drink apart. Grab a 16-ounce to go and sip it happily by the pool or in the park.
Summer drinks … and some aren’t? Summertime and the drinkin’s easy?
Look, it’s only May, but it’s already soaring past 90 degrees out there, and with the humidity, the air is dense enough to fell an ox. All we’ve got the energy for is bad puns and cocktails. We’re leaving the brown liquors alone until fall, and sticking with clear booze and citrus all summer long.
the syrup has cooled to room temperature, add lime juice, transfer to a clean jar and store in the refrigerator. Whew. OK. Now stir vodka, juice and syrup into a tall, ice-filled glass. Serve with a straw.
THE BIKINI BODY
It’s like a Southside cocktail, but with an Eastern twist thanks to the ginger and Sapphire East (which adds lemongrass and black pepper to Bombay’s usual juniper-forward aromatics). Plus: It’s slushy. 2 ounces Bombay Sapphire East gin 1/2 ounce Cynar (or similar amaro) 1/4 teaspoon ginger paste 3 ounces lemon sorbet 4 ice cubes 2 mint leaves Place everything in a blender pitcher, with mint on the bottom — you want it in the closest contact with the blades. Pulse on the high setting until you have a thick slush. Serve in a Mason jar.
Ever tried that Master Cleanse diet? Well, it turns out the lemonade it has you live on is actually pretty tasty. Especially when you add alcohol. (And skip the nasty sea-salt detox flushes.) 2 ounces sage-and-rosemary-infused vodka 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Grade B maple syrup 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice 1/10 teaspoon cayenne pepper First, infuse the vodka: Bruise three big sprigs of fresh rosemary and five or six fresh sage leaves by rolling them between your fingers. Place them in a Mason jar with 12 ounces of vodka (which doesn’t need to be an expensive brand). Allow it to steep overnight, then strain out the herbs. Put 2 ounces of the infused vodka into an ice-filled shaker along with the maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne. Shake well and strain into a stemmed cocktail glass, or pour over one large piece of ice into a rocks glass.
THE PEPPERY DOG
THE BEACH BUM
THE SOUTHEAST SLUSH
More fun than a Salty Dog. (You dog, you.) And hey, Tito’s is expensive but worth it — but don’t let me dictate your buying habits. Just don’t use total swill. 2 ounces Tito’s Handmade Vodka 3 ounces fresh red grapefruit juice 1 ounce black pepper syrup First, the syrup: Take 4 ounces of whole black peppercorns and crack half of them with the blade or butt end of a heavy chef ’s knife. Add those and the remaining whole peppercorns to 3 cups of water in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a lively simmer and reduce the liquid by half; heat about 20 or 30 minutes. Remove pan from burner, allow it to cool to room temperature, then strain out the solids. You should have about a cup and a half of pepper-infused water. Pour the liquid back into saucepan, bring it back to a boil, add sugar and stir to dissolve, then remove from heat.

Maybe you don’t want to bother with all of these syrups and infusions and blenders and such. There’s no shame in it; lazy bastards gotta drink, too. This is a solution to beach drinking that’s a step above a warm tallboy. (Hey, lazy doesn’t always equal bad taste.) Empty 1-liter bottle Double handful of frozen raspberries 3 shots of Campari 3 shots of gin (I like Hendricks) 2 cans of San Pellegrino blood orange soda, chilled Drop the frozen berries into the bottle, then use a funnel to pour in the booze. Carefully top off with the soda (don’t let it fizz up); leave some headroom, and cap. By the time you get to the beach, your drink will be mixed and chilled.

ZESTY INDIA (BAYMEADOWS) Mango Lassi The composition of this popular not-quite-milkshake-butthicker-than-milk beverage closely resembles the texture of a lighter smoothie. Originating in South Asia, it’s a silky blend of yogurt, milk and mango that’s topped with a dash of ground cardamom. Lassis often have a hint of saltiness that offsets the sweetness. If you don’t care for mango, Zesty offers a strawberry variety that should do the trick.
PULP (SAN MARCO, AVONDALE) A-Lot-A-Colada Smoothie Sometimes you just want a tropical drink with an umbrella in it, but alas, you’re stuck at work. Opt for this luscious concoction – a mix of sweet pineapple chunks, refreshing coconut water, pineapple sorbet and shredded coconut. This tropicalesque smoothie can easily take the place of lunch or be a midday treat. And that’s almost as good as sipping it while chillaxing on the beach. Almost.
DREAMETTE (MURRAY HILL, MANDARIN) Dipped Ice Cream Cone I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream – all the time, but especially in summer. Select your soft-serve flavor base – vanilla, chocolate or strawberry – which is then twirled into a handheld cake cone then promptly dipped upside down into the coating of your choice. Butterscotch, toasted coconut, cherry and cake batter are a few of your options. Whatever you fi anlly decide to pick, don’t forget to request the complementary drip guard or you may be wearing your cool concoction. Caron Streibich email@example.com
THE PERFECT BACKYARD BBQ We hit up a grilling expert on the secrets to success
lhere’s nothing that says summer quite like a backyard barbecue, lounging in the shade with your family and friends, downing a few cold ones or some lemonade, listening to music, letting the aroma of grilled meats wash over you. As easygoing as all that sounds, barbecues are also easy to screw up (trust us). So we went to an expert — Keith Monroe Waller, owner of Monroe’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Q — for an insider’s guide to ’cue success. Folio Weekly: Describe your version of the perfect summer backyard barbecue. Keith Waller: The grill is loaded with marinated chicken breasts, big juicy burgers and a variety of summer sausage links — served with chilled potato salad, coleslaw and baked beans. A great backyard barbecue should consist of lots of “framily” gathered with ice-cold beverages. Should you sauce while the meat’s on the grill? BBQ sauce should only be applied at the end of the grilling process since sugar burns when reaching temperatures of 265 degrees or more. Sauce is always a hotly debated topic. Do you recommend having a variety on the table? Everyone has a favorite type of barbecue sauce. To keep it simple, I recommend a sweet or mild tomato-based sauce and a mild mustard-based sauce. For a good Kansas City-style barbecue sauce, I recommend

LEARN TO DIVE EVERY WEEKEND & GET FULL SCUBA CERTIFIED FOR LIFE!
WEEKEND SCUBA CAMP
Photos by Dennis Ho
1 Ocean Blvd., Atlantic Beach, 249-7402 Feeling fancy? Stop into Azurea at One Ocean Resort & Spa in Atlantic Beach. The upscale lounge, located off the hotel’s main dining room, offers handcrafted cocktails served with quite a view. It’s a four-star hotel, so the drinks aren’t cheap (most cocktails will run you about $12), but they’re well worth their price tag, and it’s one of the few places at the beach for a quiet drink oceanside without the riff-raff. During the week, the patrons are mainly hotel guests, but the place fills up with local hopefuls on the weekends, with guys in their finest pastel Polos and boat shoes, and overly bronzed ladies looking to meet their next hedge-fund hubby.
120 Atlantic Blvd., Neptune Beach, 246-2175 The Lemon Bar’s ocean view and laid-back attitude draw droves of locals to its Neptune Beach digs. The bar’s patio extends right to the beach, so you can order a drink with your toes in the sand. Attached to the Seahorse Oceanfront Inn, the bar is right next to the hotel pool and serves up signature frozen cocktails and bar bites. Due to its popularity with beach bums and townies alike, it’s often standing room only, and parking’s limited. If you’re close by, we recommend you pedal your beach cruiser right up to the entrance and park it.
CLARK’S FISH CAMP
12903 Hood Landing Road, Mandarin, 268-3474 Roger Ailes’ propaganda machine finally got something right when Fox News highlighted Clark’s as one of the top five reasons to visit Jacksonville in 2010, and not much has changed at this local restaurant and “largest private taxidermy museum” since then — or even since its opening 30 years ago. Located on Julington Creek in Mandarin, this unique (and utterly bizarre) eatery offers waterfront dining with a large menu of seafood, old-fashioned Florida favorites like frog legs and gator tail, and “call of the wild” options like kangaroo, ostrich and snake. Don’t enjoy your strange cut of meat? Tough. The menu clearly warns diners that there are no refunds or exchanges 18 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
just because the fare is not to their liking. The drinks at Clark’s are no standard fare, either. The signature “Swamp Water” cocktail looks like it sounds, but tastes better and can catch you off guard with its liberal helping of liquor. A few of those in you and you might not feel as strange about eating in the company of hundreds of real stuffed animals. Or you might just want to stick to the restaurant’s large deck right on the creek.
CAP’S ON THE WATER
4325 Myrtle St., St. Augustine, 824-8794 Cap’s is a large, fine-dining restaurant with a casual feel. We came for the full bar, but there’s also an extensive wine list. So extensive, in fact, that the bartender offered us a digital version, which is updated regularly on restaurantprovided iPads. Some wines are offered by the glass, but for a special date night, you can purchase a bottle for upward of $600 (which is, of course, more than the iPad). There’s an indoor bar and several dining rooms, but when the sun is shining, the tables and bar off the wooden deck fill up with locals and vacationers lucky enough to stumble upon this tucked-away gem. Watch the sunset in comfort under expansive old oaks that cover the entire property, growing up under the water and through the restaurant.
BEACHES AT VILANO
254 Vilano Road, Vilano Beach, 829-0589 Vilano Beach is a strange place. Driving onto the little island from St. Augustine feels like traveling back in time to Miami circa 1965. Most buildings are done in the art deco style, painted in bright tropical blues and pinks. Locals call the area “the best kept secret in Florida” because of its sparsely populated beaches and quiet, small-town charm. Most of the people we met hadn’t left the island in years — and it immediately became obvious why when we arrived at Beaches. This Caribbeanthemed seafood restaurant is located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, and claims to be the only place in the area where you can dine with your toes in the sand. Though the practice might be discouraged, it’s the only place we found where you can order a drink from the outside bar, walk a few steps onto the sand and right into the ocean. Pure paradise.
117 First St., Neptune Beach, 249-9158 After the restaurants and waterfront bars shut down, stop into Pete’s for a late night drink in some ice-cold AC. By far the oldest bar in the area, Pete’s has become legendary among locals, keeping the same name and family ownership since 1933. It’s got a comfortable dive bar vibe with pool tables, darts and ping pong, and is the place to go if you want a beer or a stiff drink instead of a fruity frozen cocktail. Try to order a margarita, and even the bartender will tell you, “It’s not very good here.” It’s also probably the only place at the beaches where you’ll hear country music more often than reggae blaring from the juke box speakers.
BO’S CORAL REEF
201 Fifth Ave. N., Jax Beach, 246-9874 Feel like catching a drag show on your way back home from the beach? Bo’s hosts one nearly every night of the week, and offers club-goers a large dance floor and killer DJs to help you sweat out some toxins before driving back into town. The bartenders are superfriendly and keep the entertainment going between shows. If you feel like taking a break from the crowd, you can enjoy a game of pool in the back room or lounge on the tree-covered outside patio.
MANGO’S BEACH BAR & GRILLE
602 First St. N., Jax Beach, 246-4200 Mango’s is a decidedly divey biker bar right off First Street in the heart of downtown Jax Beach. On weekdays, the crowd skews older, mostly burly guys in trucker hats and leathery old ladies worn down by years in the sun. On the weekends, the younger beach-goers come out for karaoke and cheaper drinks than what’s served at nearby clubs. It’s also one of the last holdouts in the war against indoor smoking, so be warned that busy nights can be rough on a non-smoker’s beautifully pink lungs.

6 OFF-THE-RADAR (AND NOT FROTHY) BEACH READS Broaden your mind while tanning your body
ound a beach umbrella into a choice stretch of sand. Unfold a chaise lounge, spread a towel across and stretch out across the length. Have cold drinks close by. Breathe in and soak in the scene. Smell the sand. Smell the salt air. Hear the squawking of seagulls. Watch the waves roll toward you, crest, break and fan over the shoreline followed by flocks of sanderlings pecking at goodies in the sand when the wave recedes. Look out, far out across the expanse of ocean to where water and sky touch in the far distance. Then open a book. A good read dilates a moment, takes you deeper into your senses. Read a couple of pages and look up. Allow a quiet rumination to furl your mind. You don’t have anywhere to be. Read a chapter. Take a walk. Read some more. Float. This is what the right summer beach read offers. Forget frothy. Go deep. Or go Florida. Listen to the way great writers describe her swamps and her springs and her oddities. Delicious summer repast.
100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
This is the summer to read or re-read this masterpiece of magical realism by the Nobel Prizewinning novelist and journalist who died on April 18. Márquez gives flesh to flights of fancy with the sensuous use of detail. A girl so beautiful she must cover her face with a shawl when she goes to mass is lifted from the earth with sheets fluttering, waving goodbye as a gust of wind carries her into the air.
The Collected Poems of Federico García Lorca
Spain’s most beloved poet reads modernist and fresh as the color green or a lucent drop of water. Check out this verse from “Ditty of Desire”: “(Soul, turn orange-colored. Soul, turn the color of love.) In the vivid morning I wanted to be myself. A heart. And at the evening’s end I wanted to be my voice. A nightingale.”
Cruddy by Lynda Barry
“Once upon a cruddy time on a cruddy street on the side of a cruddy hill in the cruddiest part of a crudded-out town in a cruddy state, country, world, solar system, universe … the Cruddy girl named Roberta was writing the cruddy book of her cruddy life and the name of the book was called Cruddy.” (It’s the story of a father/daughter cross-country murder spree.)
Fringe Florida: Travels among Mud Boggers, Furries, Ufologists, Nudists and Other Lovers of Unconventional Lifestyles by Lynn Waddell
Don’t assume this book is a freak show. The St. Pete-based Waddell is a reporter’s reporter, with a sharp eye and the desire to delve deep, as well as a respect for the people she writes about. She notices, for instance, that at the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, where actors re-enact scenes from the Bible, it seems a blow-up doll was outfitted with a long brown wig to represent the Virgin Mary in the manger scene. She also writes chapters on Tampa’s all-nude strip club king Joe Redner, hard-ass all-women motorcycle clubs and fetishists who dress up like ponies. It’s probably the only book ever published by University Press of Florida that comes with a content warning.
Alligators in B Flat: Improbable Tales from Real Florida by Jeff Klinkenberg
Tampa Bay Times feature writer Klinkenberg has the best job in journalism. He roams the state and writes about its people, its food, its culture and anything else in Florida that strikes his fancy. In this collection, he writes about rabble-rouser, Klan-infiltrator and folklorist Stetson Kennedy; burlesque queen and B-movie star Chesty Morgan, she of the 73-inch bust; and a trip to the Fakahatchee Strand to see a ghost orchid in bloom, as well as many other fascinating things.
Citrus County by John Brandon
It’s is a crime novel and love story set in a hot, emotionally rotting Florida community where a kid on the eighth-grade track team is a sociopath and teen romance goes really wrong and then right. Brandon inverts the genre of the crime novel to his own unpredictable ends. It starts: “There shouldn’t be a Citrus County. Teenage romance should be difficult, but not this difficult. Boys like Toby should cause trouble but not this much.” Susan Cooper Eastman firstname.lastname@example.org 20 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT 12 early-summer records you totally want to cop HUNDRED WATERS The Moon Rang Like a Bell (May 27, OWSLA)
The Gainesvilleborn avant-gardists sharpen the ethereal focus of their meditative electro-pop on this hotly anticipated second album.

Seun, the son of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, taps Dad’s band and guest rappers like M-1 of Dead Prez to craft a socially conscious assault.
SHARON VAN ETTEN
Are We There
(May 27, Tic Tac Totally)
(May 27, Jagjaguwar)
The Brooklyn singer-songwriter cuts far closer to the bone than most folkies – and, on this self-produced album, burrows even deeper toward stark, intimate truths.
Third Time to Harm The cover of these Austin garagepunks’ third album says it all: three raised middle fingers that embody the menacing rage of their Stooges-like stomp.
Ride the Black
(May 27, Joyful Noise)
(June 3, Easy Sound)
Gat, an Israeli guitarist, spent years shredding in the shadow of his hell-raising Monotonix bandmates, but he’s got his own game now.
Nobody does charmingly lackadaisical country-rock filtered through a gloomy Pacific Northwest lens better.
(June 3, Matador/Arts & Crafts)
(June 3, What’s Your Rupture/Mom + Pop)
These buzzy, nervy prog-punks have built up a huge head of sophomore-album steam thanks to an alwaysscathing, occasionally snotty, hyper-intelligent approach.
Glass Boys The Canadian hardcore kingpins kick out some of the fiercest and most abrasive jams on the planet; their righteous politics, far-ranging album concepts and life-affirming live shows only add to that throat-shredding luster.
THE FRESH & ONLYS
House of Spirits
(June 10, Dead Oceans)
(June 10, Mexican Summer)
Fractured, discombobulating noise rock built on industrialized electronic samples and twisted psychedelia – it’s hard to believe this self-assured statement is the LA’s band’s debut.
These prodigious Bay Area rockers do it all – Krautrock, Baroque pop, country jangle, surfy shoegaze – on their knotty, hit-stuffed fifth full-length.
FIRST AID KIT
Electric Brick Wall
(June 10, Columbia)
(June 24, Drag City)
Ask Folio Weekly contributor Daniel A. Brown about his former Royal Trux bandmate Jennifer Herrema and you’ll get one answer: She rocks. Herrema’s second album as Black Bananas mixes electronic bounce with the trashed-rawk that made her famous.
Stay Gold The Swedish sisters follow up their 2012 smash The Lion’s Roar (and recently singing backup on Conor Oberst’s new record) with more heavenly harmonies and spot-on approximations of ghostly Americana. Nick McGregor email@example.com
POOL PARTY PLAYLIST
10 CAN’T-MISS SUMMER CONCERTS
Because no pool party is complete without one
Seriously. Don’t miss these shows
Andrew Jackson Jihad
1. ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD and CHEAP GIRLS, JUNE 5, JACK RABBITS
Severely underrated Phoenix duo Andrew Jackson Jihad specializes in a gritty, gratifying folk-punk approach that’s on excellent display on their new album Christmas Island, recorded with punk production icon John Congleton. They play with Cheap Girls, who breathe new life into heartland rock.
2. MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT, JUNE 10, UNDERBELLY
These industrial rock pioneers came up alongside fellow genre progenitors Ministry and KMFDM, yet they’ve never shied away from experimentation or controversy, skewing toward sultry disco, sleazy house and spooky go-go spiked with shocking, sexed-up vivacity.
3. FOXY SHAZAM and LARRY & HIS FLASK, JUNE 13, FREEBIRD LIVE
Cincinnati band Foxy Shazam lives up to its ab-fab name with rhinestone-studded glam rock and over-the-top onstage theatricality. Don’t miss opener Larry & His Flask, who will thrash through punked-up bluegrass.
4. THE ROUGH & TUMBLE, JUNE 17, BURRO BAR
Nashville duo Scott Tyler and Mallory Graham seem sweeter than cherry pie — in 2013, they released two songs per month as part of a “Holiday Awareness Campaign.” Their heartfelt, harmonious take on slightly askew Americana strikes just the right balance between precious and profound.
5. DAVID DONDERO, JUNE 28, SHANGHAI NOBBY’S
This nomadic troubadour swings through Northeast Florida nearly every year, yet his roadweary, emotionally resonant narratives never get old. Dondero himself hates the honor, but don’t pass up the chance to get intimate with a man named as one of NPR’s 10 Best Living Songwriters.
6. THE DUVAL LUAU with GUANTANAMO BAYWATCH and WET NURSE, JULY 5,
UNDERBELLY Replace your red, white and blue with thrashed grass skirts and ironic Hawaiian shirts to celebrate ’Murica with campy Portland surf-rock lunatics Guantanamo Baywatch and sugary Orlando garage-poppers Wet Nurse.
7. RAY LAMONTAGNE and JENNY LEWIS, JULY 15, THE FLORIDA THEATRE
The most high-profile show on this list should also deliver the most diverse night of entertainment: LaMontagne’s coarse-grained soul has matured into a heady mix of psychedelia and R&B, while the heavenly voice of former-child-TV-star-turned-folk-chanteuse Jenny Lewis is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
8. JEREMY MESSERSMITH, JULY 18, JACK RABBITS
Elegant voice, sophisticated production, heart-on-sleeve songwriting — consider this Minnesotan the crown prince of baroque pop, or the “Pied Piper of Wuss Rock,” as Messersmith calls himself.
9. ELLIS PAUL, AUG. 8, THE ORIGINAL CAFÉ ELEVEN
If we’re talking music royalty, Ellis Paul is the undisputed king of hyper-literate, Boston-style folk music, which pays equal homage to the genre’s storied past and its progressive present. Very few have done more to advance it into the future.
10. CONNECTION FESTIVAL with KERMIT RUFFINS & THE BBQ SWINGERS, TREME BRASS BAND, LESS THAN JAKE, SURFER BLOOD, WHOLE WHEAT BREAD, ORQUESTRA EL MACABEO, LA QUILOMBERA and more, SEPT. 12-14,
DOWNTOWN JACKSONVILLE This Downtown festival might fall after the unofficial end of summer on Labor Day. But putting together a tasty blend of New Orleans traditionalists, Florida punks and Puerto Rican salsa savants should give off plenty of September heat.
cientific studies show that great parties are enhanced by great music. And if you’re talking wet, hot Northeast Florida pool parties, well, the perfect mix of upbeat partystarters, laid-back grooves and fist-pumping classics can elevate a good time to an ultimate summer blowout that will stand the test of time. We approve the following 50 songs as the finest to ever soundtrack a chlorinated bacchanal — now, everyone in the pool!

VISUAL ARTS RYAN RUMMEL & DIOGENES
At once ethereal and crudely childlike, Ryan Rummel’s muted illustrations depict seemingly pleasant-looking nudes regarding their disturbing environments with bored or passive expressions. Rummel, owner of Downtown’s Club TSI, creates ink portraits overlaid with acrylic paint and red clay stains. In stark contrast to Rummel’s, Diogenes’ art consists of found objects colorfully painted to look a bit like obscenely freakish faces. His work fuses inorganic and organic, a contrast with an otherworldly appearance – like the set from Killer Klowns from Outerspace, if designed by Marcel Duchamp. Reception, 6-8 p.m. May 22; exhibit runs through July 3, Florida Mining Gallery, Southside, free.
GARAGE ROCK JACUZZI BOYS
Jacuzzi Boys, a Miami psychedelic garage-rock group, caught the eye of punk pioneer Iggy Pop, who called them a band with a “stupid name, but they’ve got great spirit.” The trio headlines a short tour after opening for hugely successful indie darlings Vampire Weekend. After six years playing together, the South Florida natives are finally reaching something approaching mainstream success with their new album, a self-titled and critically well-received collection of fuzzy but polished tunes. They share the Underbelly stage with St. Augustine’s queer garage-rock sweethearts Queen Beef and local postpunks Boggsie Brigade. 9 p.m. May 27, Underbelly, Downtown, $10 at the door.
COMEDY HUGGY LOWDOWN & CHRIS PAUL
OLD-TIME STRING MUSIC OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW
Twenty years ago, Old Crow Medicine Show’s current level of mainstream success was inconceivable. The seven-piece string band collective cut its teeth the old-fashioned way, coalescing around streetcorner busking sessions and mountain-holler hoedowns. A fortuitous (and spontaneous) performance for bluegrass legend Doc Watson in 2000 gave OCMS its fi rst big break, followed in 2004 by a co-author arrangement with Bob Dylan on “Wagon Wheel,” now one of the Great American Songbook’s most prominent entries (despite its ubiquitous treatment by Hootie, sans Blowfi sh). Get ready to stomp your feet and clap your hands because these stadium-level stars, Billboard chart toppers and Grand Ole Opry members have one of the most riveting, authentically revivalist stage presences in the world. 7 p.m. May 25, St. Augustine Amphitheatre, 1340 A1A S., $29.75-$39.75.
You know that one uncle who’s hilarious at family reunions, but outside the family circle his jokes fall flat? That’s about the best way to sum up comedy duo Huggy Lowdown and Chris Paul. They’re staples on the syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, bringing their style of humor to more than 8 million listeners every weekday morning. Paul’s shared a stage with comedy heavyweights Chris Rock, Drew Carey and Martin Lawrence. Huggy’s celebrity gossip and Paul’s musical parodies take aim at the night crowd. 8 p.m. May 22-25, 10 p.m. May 23 and 24 at The Comedy Zone, Mandarin, $20-$25.
WWI CENTENNIAL BREAKFAST IN THE PARK
One of Jacksonville’s major claims to fame is having the largest urban park system in the U.S. The most popular and picturesque of these, Riverside’s Memorial Park, an ideal spot for a romantic picnic, is also steeped in Jacksonville history. In remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, the U.S. Navy’s Color Guard opens a brief formal ceremony before local author Wayne Wood speaks about the history of the park, dedicated in 1924, and its centerpiece sculpture Life, designed by C. Adrian Pillars (left). 9-10:30 a.m. May 26 at Memorial Park, Riverside, with breakfast treats donated by local merchants, free. A game of Ultimate Frisbee follows the ceremony. 36 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
SURF ROCK THE DELUSIONAIRES
A Portuguese music blogger describes The Delusionaires’ sound as “dirty-rock instrumental played and poorly recorded in a filthy striptease nightclub full of fat drunks throwing up at the bar.” You can’t get much higher praise than that. The sleazy Orlando surf-rock quartet bring their brand of garage-punk mania to Shanghai Nobby’s with their rockabilly do-wop friends The Wild Tones and local heroes Thee Harmonious Fists, best known for their holiday classic, “Merry Fistmas.” 9 p.m. May 24, Shanghai Nobby’s, St. Augustine, $7.

PUNK NEVER DIES
t was the summer of 1985, and I was an incoming freshman at the University of Florida. Gainesville was seriously happening at the time, with indie record stores and easyto-sneak-into nightclubs lining the streets around campus. As a 17-year-old musician and architecture major (yeah … it was a long time ago), I immersed myself in my newfound freedom and interesting musical discoveries, care of some new friends and dorm mates. A highbrow intellectual turned me on to Frank Zappa. A peace-through-vandalism buddy turned me on to black metal, speed metal and crossover punk. Suddenly I was analyzing the dense orchestral rock of Zappa while attending Celtic Frost and Agnostic Front concerts at the local VFW. (Remember when Agnostic Front was hardcore? Didn’t think so.) That year, I saw Corrosion of Conformity, Hellwitch and Death. That year, I was made painfully aware of the long-hair/skinhead rivalry that ruined too many shows. That year, I was asked to join local hardcore band Psychic Violents. That year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers smashed a wedding cake in the campus ballroom on a local cable access TV show. That year, I missed the goddamned Black Flag show. They broke up in 1986, and any hopes of catching my favorite among the era’s best bands were dashed. But my love for aggressive, bloody punk had been established — and it abides to this day. So I was delighted to receive the new compilation album North Florida Punk Rock. Released on May 9 by the folks at the Atlantic Beach record shop Young, Loud & Snotty, the album features 15 Northeast Florida punk groups on vinyl and digital download. But before we talk about the bands, let’s take a moment to appreciate the album itself, and its artwork. First off, this sucker has been pressed on purple-and-white tie-dye vinyl, and it’s a sweet piece. Also noteworthy is the cover illustration by local horror artist Stephen Bunnell, which harks back to the hand-drawn covers of ’80s punk and metal albums. A muscle-bound, green-mohawked skeleton threatens fisticuffs. He’s wearing a purple wristband. OK, not enough space here to cover all 40 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
the bands featured therein, but here are a few highlights: The package kicks off with The Reachers’ “1989,” apropos as its gang vocals reminisce about skateboarding, going to shows and ruling the neighborhood. Track 2, one of the best on the record, is a blistering tune called “Dead World” by Full On Assault. It also recalls the heyday of hardcore with an undeniable West Coast vibe. “I’m a Drunk,” by the Wastedist, is a speedy little number that might be considered a rejoinder to Black Flag’s “Drinking and Driving.” F.F.N. goes decidedly low-fi with “No Regrets & Alcohol,” another one of the record’s better cuts. It’s an angry screamer that would whip up a pretty nasty skank pit at a cul-de-sac house party, for sure. Faith City Fiasco opens the flip side with a reverb-heavy rebel yell titled “Worst Prom Ever.” Almost more metal than punk, it’s just sloppy enough to be respectable. Powerball offers a crunchy bastard of a tune with “Pull the Trigger.” Another contender for top honors, this one is nearly too musical to fit with the others on the record, as it’s heavy on intricate, well-performed riffage. Deeper into the album, Nine Tenths blasts through the very excellent, short-but-super-pissed-off “Lazy Parent,” a breakneck crossover nugget that could easily double as a D.R.I. song. If the YLS comp is a true representation of Jacksonville’s punk scene, then I’ve got to get back out there and check out some shows. Despite cheeseball attempts by some nowhuge pop bands to call themselves punk, the genre seems resilient enough to survive that nonsense. Punk — real punk — never seems to die, and the bands on this compilation are the ones keeping it alive, rude and snotty. And that’s a good thing. John E. Citrone email@example.com

THE LAST MAN TO DIE
he real crime here is that practically nobody saw Mr. Nobody when it made its staggered appearance on movie screens beginning in 2009 at the Venice Film Festival. Since then, the movie has been shown in different versions at different limited runs until its home video release in early 2014. That version, the extended director’s cut, has a running time of more than two-and-a-half hours — and it’s worth every minute. Like Cloud Atlas (2012), another magnificent film too few people saw, Mr. Nobody is visually stunning, intellectually challenging and emotionally fulfilling. The nonlinear plot opens in the year 2092 as the whole world watches in awe as the last remaining mortal, 118-year-old Nemo (Jared Leto), nears death. While a jaded video journalist plies his wares to the worldwide social network, a more sympathetic interviewer plumbs Nemo’s memory for the facts of his long life. Thus begins an odyssey of memory, love and loss, fragmented along three different timelines dictated by a small boy’s impossible choice or, perhaps, something as insignificant as a falling leaf — all leading to an absolutely dazzling conclusion. When his idyllic childhood comes to an end with the separation of his parents (Natasha Little, Rhys Ifans), Nemo is forced to choose which one with whom he’d rather remain. Like Robert Frost’s “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,” Nemo’s desperate decision either way propels him into three possible realities, each focused on a love lost and/or found. In one scenario, he finds happiness with his brunette stepsister Anna (his most fulfilling love); another pairs him with blonde Elise (a tortured but nonetheless committed marriage); and a third with Jean (a comfortable but incomplete relationship). Each of the storylines is interwoven throughout the narrative like various threads in an ornate tapestry. Time, fantasy and reality overlap, as do those playing the major characters at various ages, particularly as teens and adults — Nemo (Thomas Byrne at age 9, Toby Regbo at 15, Leto from 20-118), Anna (Juno Temple/Diane Kruger), Elise (Clare Stone/Sarah Polley) and Jean (Audrey Giacomini/Linh Dan Pham). Their names are worth noting because Mr. Nobody, despite its unusual narrative, is mostly character-driven, and the performances across the board are riveting, especially Polley’s and Leto’s. In fact, this was Leto’s last film role before his Oscarwinning turn in last year’s Dallas Buyers Club. During the interim, he took time off to devote himself to his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars. (Fittingly, one of the many alternate subplots in Mr. Nobody involves a trip to Mars.) Written and directed by Belgian filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael, the English-language Mr. Nobody was funded largely by a consortium of European producers. Though it received lavish praise at various festivals and was voted one of the best European films of the year by the American Film Institute, the movie never got wide release and, consequently, an audience. What a shame! Now you can see the lengthy film at your leisure, time and again. It’s a story that gets even better on subsequent viewings, and one of my own favorite films of the last few years. But fair warning: I also loved Cloud Atlas. Pat McLeod firstname.lastname@example.org 44 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 **@@ Rated PG-13 This one’s gotten all kinds of fanboy guff for more than a year now, with complaints ranging from an overstuffed cast of villains (Spider-Man 3, anyone?) to the allegedly cheap, cut-sceney look of the FX to the utter unreality of casting a black actor in the role of a guy who throws thunderbolts from his body. (Don’t worry, kids: Cliven Bundy understands your concerns, even if the rest of us are more concerned that Jamie Foxx’s take on Max Dillon seems to owe a lot to Jim Carrey’s Edward Nygma in Batman Forever.) Sure, there’s a precedent for comics flicks sacrificing story to ensemble, but really – was anybody holding out for that solo Rhino flick? Maybe Marc Webb has committed a colossal blunder in rushing toward a Sinister Six movie and maybe he hasn’t – and maybe we should all just judge for ourselves. — Steve Schneider BEARS Rated G Disney takes us on a fascinating documentary voyage into the world of those cuddly, hirsute homosexuals just looking for love and acceptance in … oh, wait.

(Tom Wilkinson), her elevation to “proper society” playing an important role in the abolition of slavery in England. So maybe the Brits got offended by the Ethan Lane joke in Lincoln and decided to strike back with their own emancipation chronicle? Except that, behind the scenes, what went on appears to have been more 12 Years a Slave, with director Amma Asante failing to secure the sole screenwriting credit that ultimately went to Misan Sigay. Every one of us this side of the pond looks forward to a veddy slooooow finger-clap at the BAFTAs. — S.S. BLENDED Rated PG-13 When she appeared in the Memento-“inspired” romcom 50 First Dates, Drew Barrymore played a woman whose lack of short-term memory prevented her from remembering that she had already gone out with Adam Sandler. And in a case of life imitating art, the real Drew seems to have suffered a similar cranial trauma, since she apparently cannot remember she’s already made a movie with Adam Sandler. Three of ’em, in fact, counting this new one, in which the duo play single parents who have to get over their mutual animosity while on a shared safari vacation. Some people never learn from their mistakes, I guess – or maybe they don’t mind having those mistakes reinforced by audiences who must have ADD themselves, given how eagerly they welcome each fart joke as if it were the first one ever spoken by man. Wait a sec … what was I saying? — S.S. BRICK MANSIONS Rated PG-13 The late Paul Walker’s penultimate film takes place in “a dystopian Detroit,” which has to be the redundancy of the month. But dig this: It’s not just any old dystopian Detroit like on the news or in a Robocop movie, but a walled-off dystopian Detroit that’s a holding cell for the area’s most dangerous criminals. Helluva creative spin, right? Unless you count that the flick is a remake of the French District B13, which as The Guardian pointed out, was in turn “wantonly ripped off from John Carpenter’s Escape From New York.” But hey – at least it’s not a sequel! Costars David Belle and RZA. — S.S. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER ***G Rated PG-13 Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), aka Captain America, hasn’t had time to cope with after-effects of one-way time travel, via cryonic sleep, from the 1940s to the 2010s, but he’s starting to face his disconnect. Costars Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson. And Stan Lee! — Marlene Dryden DIVERGENT Rated PG-13 Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) is labeled a Divergent, a group of misfits considered so dangerous that their destruction is being plotted. So she hooks up with another outcast – Four (Theo James), who’s really just one person. Costars Kate Winslet, Ashley Judd and Zoe Kravitz. — M.D. DRAFT DAY Rated PG-13 Here in J-ville, we love Draft Day – every year, there’s a chance to get some awesome players added to our already awesome Jaguars roster. (And now it could be a dream come true! Welcome to River City, Bortles, you beautiful hunk of manflesh, you.) Costars Kevin Costner,
Chadwick Boseman, Jennifer Garner, Deion Sanders, Aaron Goldhammer and Chris Berman. — M.D. FADING GIGILO Rated R Writer/director John Turturro also costars in this quirky film about Murray (Woody Allen) and Floravante (Turturro), New Yorkers who co-own a bookstore on the verge of closing. In an effort to make some fast cash to keep the store open, Murray pimps out Floravante, who does not appear to be the kind of boy toy any woman (or man) would actually fork over big bucks for – yet, to their astonishment, the money starts rolling in. Well, as Notorious B.I.G. so wisely intoned, “Mo’ money, mo’ problems.” (Biggie, who made a lot of money, is now dead.) The supporting cast, lousy with nepotism, includes Vanessa Paradis, Liev Schreiber, Sharon Keep-Your-Legs-Crossed Stone, Sofia Vergara, John’s cousin Aida Turturro, Aida’s second cousin Diego Turturro and the goddamn adorable Bob Balaban. — M.D. GOD’S NOT DEAD Rated PG Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper) is a college student having trouble in philosophy class. Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo) doesn’t believe there is a God, shaking Josh’s faith. Costars Dean Cain and Willie Robertson. — M.D. GODZILLA ***G Rated PG-13 The newest version updates the King of All Monsters for the 21st Century beautifully, moving in tandem with the global zeitgeist. Instead of nukes, global warming is the bugaboo behind today’s monster. Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) works with a secret research group studying Godzilla since the 1950s, when all those Pacific nuke “tests” were actually efforts to kill the damn thing. Director Gareth Edwards hides more than he reveals, with the major monster action happening at night, enshrouded in dust, smoke and fog. Costars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Juliette Binoche, Elizabeth Olsen and Sally Hawkins. — MaryAnn Johanson THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL **G@ Rated R Director Wes Anderson guides a great ensemble in this, The Twee-est Story Ever Told, including Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Bill Murray, the goddamn adorable Bob Balaban, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson. The com-dram, about Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), concierge of an elegant European hotel, is largely told by the 1960s version of lobby boy Zero Moustafa (F. Murray Abraham) about his time at the hotel and the madcap adventures he and Gustave had. — M.D. HEAVEN IS FOR REAL Rated PG Have you noticed that it seems to be the season of the beatific death-where-is-thy-sting story? On TV, you’ve got Resurrection, which offers the helpful reassurance that your Uncle Max who farts at Thanksgiving dinner will keep coming back even after his ticker craps out from all that breading. And in theaters, you’ve got this movie, a Greg Kinnear pay-it-upward vehicle based on the best-selling book about a kid who died for a bit and came around bearing all sorts of details about the Great Beyond. Personally, I prefer my tales of life after death to star zombies and

vampires, but I understand why there need to be other-side stories for people who will only accept immortality if it follows in the tradition of Jeebus. Still, what I wouldn’t pay to see Dead is Dead and That’s Your Lot, starring Ricky Gervais and financed by the Atheist Alliance of America. — S.S. LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY’S RETURN Rated PG The Baum family’s eagerness to exploit – I mean, “further” – patriarch L. Frank’s legacy is why we have this animated musical, which premiered last year in France but is only now getting a wide release here. The use of Lea Michele’s tonsils as the voice of Dorothy is ostensibly the big draw, but the theater geeks in your social circle will be sucked in by Bernadette Peters and Megan Hilty, who played mother and daughter on the late, endearingly awful SMASH. Peters voices the character of Glinda the Good Witch … which just happens to be the same part Hilty played on Broadway in Wicked. Hey, don’t laugh! How much time do you spend memorizing RBIs? — S.S. THE LOVE PUNCH ***@ Rated PG-13 • Opens May 23 Reviewed in this issue. MILLION DOLLAR ARM Rated PG In a perfect world, Jon Hamm would be on the set of Batman vs. Superman right now, pulling on a pair of red booties and practicing his delivery of the line “I like pink very much, Lois.” (That’s the same world, of course, where Clive Owen is shooting his fifth Bond picture and the winner of The Voice gets to attach electrodes to Carson Daly’s testicles.) Instead, we have to live in reality, where we now get only a paltry seven goddamn episodes of Mad Men per year, and they’re interrupted by promos for Million Dollar Arm, a Disney family sports flick about a baseball agent who journeys to Mumbai to scout potential pitching talent. Slumdog Rookie, anyone? Oh, and Aasif Mandvi is in this, too, instead of starring in a Comedy Central series about an embattled Al-Jazeera correspondent, like he would be doing in that hypothetical nirvana I described. Meanwhile, the pitching coach who gets the boys into shape is played by Bill Paxton, who in a perfect world would … scratch that, he’d probably be doing the exact same thing. — S.S. MOMS’ NIGHT OUT Rated PG Filmmakers Jon and Andrew Erwin of the anti-abortion polemic October Baby continue to tell us what women should be up to, this time in a comedy about moms who make the mistake of having their husbands watch the kids so they can have a night out on the town. That’ll learn the selfish cunnies to stay in the kitchen! If you think the Erwins’ perspective is a bit skewed, take heart – they actually let a real live female-type-person cowrite this thing: Andrea Gyertson Nasfell, whose screenwriting oeuvre is heavily reliant on concepts of angels, missionaries and Christmas. See? Diversity out the wazoo. Costars Sarah Drew, Trace Adkins, Sean Astin, Patricia Heaton. — S.S.
NEIGHBORS **G@ Rated R New parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) Radner have to put up with the Delta Psi fraternity buying the suburban house next door. Directed by Nicholas Stoller from a script by first-time feature writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the comedy casts Rogen in a comfortable role as a genial pot-smoker, and Byrne in a comfortable role where she’s allowed to speak with her own Australian accent. Though they first try to play nice with the party-hearty crew led by chapter president Teddy (Zac Efron), the escalating noise levels disturbing their sleep lead them to start a conflict from which no one could escape without some sort of humiliating incident. Neighbors is built on the classic (or tired) foundation that the antagonists are more alike than they realize – clinging to their familiar sense of what makes a happy existence, digging in their heels against the perspective adjustments required for the next transitional life moment. — Scott Renshaw ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE **@@ Rated R • Opens May 23 at Sun-Ray Cinema Director-writer Jim Jarmusch’s vampire film captures the magic and melancholy that accompany the blessing – and curse – of immortality. It offers a haunting, unique addition to the genre before collapsing in the second half under its own slow pacing, two-hour runtime and near-total lack of energy and plot. Adam (Tom Hiddleston) stays secluded in a derelict Detroit mansion, composing music, bemoaning what “zombies” (humans) have done to civilization and yearning for the Renaissance – or even the ’60s. He has three acquaintances: a doctor he bribes for blood, a gopher whom he trusts to run errands, and the love of his life, Eve (Tilda Swinton), also a vampire. She lives in Morocco, and is a close friend of another eternal dweller, Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt) – yes, that Marlowe. — Cameron Meier THE OTHER WOMAN Rated PG-13 Nick Cassavettes directs Cameron Diaz as a woman who forges an unlikely alliance with her three-timing boyfriend’s wife and mistress. Silly old me was under the mistaken impression that this would be a sideways riff on The Women, but the Internet set me straight: It’s actually a grown-up version of John Tucker Must Die. Thanks, trolls! I almost said something stupid. Costars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, Don Johnson (a role model for roués worldwide) and Nicki Minaj. — S.S.

A LITTLE BUT OF THIS, A LITTLE BIT OF THAT The Dim Sum Room touts an abundance of flavorful Cantonese small plates THE DIM SUM ROOM, inside Watami Buffet & Lounge, 9041 Southside Blvd., thedimsumroom.com
50 | FOLIOWEEKLY.com | MAY 21-27, 2014
’m about to let you in on some secrets. One: Until last week, I’d never experienced dim sum. (I know, right?) Two: Inside a restaurant, inside a strip mall, lies a special room that serves up Cantonese-style small plates — dim sum — that will rock your world. Since dim sum isn’t readily available across the area, it was exciting to order a range of dishes and embark on an exploration of these new-to-me items. Dim sum is essentially Chinese tapas, served on individual small plates or in a small steamer basket. You won’t find most of these versions on a standard Chinese menu. We started with the chicken feet ($3.75), shark’s fin dumplings ($4.25), scallop dumpling ($4.25), fried shrimp balls ($4.25), shumai ($3.75), fried taro dumpling ($3.75), steamed taro bun ($3.75) and crispy pork belly ($9.95). So, the chicken feet? Not for the faint of heart, or me — lots of small bones, odd texture (think of the fat that surrounds your rib-eye) and generally weird because they arrive looking like little feet that are waving (or high-fiving?) at you. Since they’re mostly skin, I found them to have an extremely gelatinous mouthfeel. My tablemates loved them, so © 2014 maybe it’s just not my thing. The piping-hot oversized shrimp balls had a super-crisp, crunchy exterior akin to fried noodles, which gave way to a chewy, shrimpy interior. Along with the shark’s fin dumplings, fried taro dumplings, steamed taro buns and crispy pork, I’d definitely order them again. Our plate of perfectly crispy pork belly, served with a side of hoisin sauce, was gigantic — more than enough for three to share. Our waitress also presented us with a diluted Hong Kong red vinegar, tangy and acidic, which we preferred to the sweet hoisin. The steamed taro buns were tennis-ballsized rolls of goodness of a light purple hue, and soft and fluffy in texture, imparting a subtly sweet taro flavor. The Dim Sum Room is open daily from
11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and if your guests aren’t into dim sum, they can hit up Watami’s Asian fusion buffet and full bar instead. There’s something for everyone — small plate or large. Caron Streibich email@example.com facebook.com/folioweeklybitesized

ARIES (March 21-April 19): I believe your persuasive powers will be stronger than usual in the weeks ahead. The words coming out of your mouth will sound especially interesting. I suspect your intelligence will get at least a temporary upgrade. The clarity of your thoughts will intensify. You’ll see truths you’ve been blind to in the past. Innovative solutions to long-running dilemmas may occur to you. The only potential snag? You may neglect to nurture your emotional riches. You could become too dry and hard. But you’ve been warned, so take steps to ensure it won’t happen. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If there was a Hall of Fame for scientists, physicist Isaac Newton (1642-1727) would’ve been the charter member. He was like Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry were to rock and roll, like Babe Ruth to baseball. The theory of gravity and the three laws of motion were his gifts to the world. He made major contributions to mathematics and optics, and was a central figure in defining modern science. There’s a legend that he invented the cat door, inspired by his pet felines. Whether or not it’s true, it’s an excellent metaphor for this horoscope. It’s a great time to apply your finest talents and highest intelligence to dream up small, mundane but practical innovations. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): During the next 12 months, you’ll have exceptional opportunities to soak up knowledge, add to your skill set and get training you need to pursue interesting kinds of success in the next six to eight years. The best way to prepare? Develop an exciting new plan for future education. To get in the mood, try this: make a list of your most promising but still unripe potentials, meditate on subjects that evoke the most curiosity, brainstorm about what experiences would give you more control over your destiny and study three people you know who’ve improved their lives taking aggressive steps to enhance their proficiency. CANCER (June 21-July 22): The moon shows us a different phase every 24 hours, which makes it seem changeable. In fact, not much actually happens on the moon. It has no atmosphere, no weather, no wind, no plant life, no seasons. There is some water, but it’s frozen. Anything like this in your life? Something that, on the surface, seems to constantly move, but whose underlying state never shifts or develops? According to my analysis, now’s an excellent time to revise how you understand this part of your world, and then update your relationship with it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “There is always an enormous temptation in all of life,” writes Annie Dillard, “to diddle around making itsy-bitsy friends and meals and journeys for itsy-bitsy years on end … I won’t have it. The world is wider than that in all directions, more dangerous and bitter, more extravagant and bright.” Your assignment? Transcend whatever’s itsy-bitsy about your life. The alternative? Head toward the frontier and drum up experiences to thrill your heart and blow your mind. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours,” writes novelist Heidi R. Kling. That’s good advice to keep in mind these days. Those little imps and rascals that live in you may get you in bad trouble if they’re bored. But if you arrange for them to have play dates with the imps and rascals in people you trust, they’re more likely to get you in good trouble. They may even provide bits of gritty inspiration. What’s that you say? You don’t have any demons? Not true. Everyone has them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “When people tell you who they are, believe them,” writes blogger Maria Popova (Brainpickings.org). “Just as important, however, when people try to tell you who you are, don’t believe them.” Those suggestions are especially crucial to keep in mind these days. You’re entering a phase when your best relationships are up for review, revision and revitalization. To foster an environment in which intimacy will thrive, be extra receptive, curious, tolerant and tender. That’s all! Easy, right? A good place to start? Proceed as if your allies know who they are better than you do — even as you ask them to return the favor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Kludge” (pronounced klooj) is slang that refers to a clumsy but effective fix for an engineering problem. It’s a cobbled-together solution that works fine, at least temporarily, even though it’s inelegant or seems farfetched. Let’s apply this concept metaphorically. You’ll be a kludge master in the next few days, skilled at making the best of mediocre situations. You may have surprising success doing things that don’t come naturally, and you find unexpected ways to correct glitches no one else has any idea about how to fix.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Have you thought of organizing a crowdfunding campaign to boost your pet project or labor of love? Get serious about it in the next four weeks. This phase of your cycle will be a favorable time to expand your audience, attract new allies and build a buzz. You have a sixth sense about how to wield personal charm to serve long-term goals. More than usual, your selfish interests dovetail with the greater good — maybe in unexpected ways.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I hesitate to compare you to your fellow Aquarian Kim Jong-il. When he was alive and ruling North Korea, he was an egomaniacal tyrant. You’re definitely not that. But there are certain descriptions of him in his official biography that remind me of the kinds of powers you may soon exhibit. He was called The Great Sun of Life and Highest Incarnation of Revolutionary Comradely Love — titles like that may suit you. It’s said he invented the hamburger. He could command rain to fall from the sky. He once shot 11 holes-in-one in a single round of golf, was a master at gliding down waterslides and never used a toilet because he produced no waste. You may be able to do comparable feats in the weeks ahead. Do it without excessive pride.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Years ago, I had a Virgo friend who was a talented singer. She had technical skill, stylistic flair and animal magnetism, worthy of being a lead vocalist in almost any great band. And yet when she dreamed of performing, she often stood in the shadows, barely visible and singing tentatively, while her back-up singers hogged the spotlight center stage. Moral of the story: Some Virgos are shy about claiming full authority. It’s not easy to shine your light and radiate power. You can learn to do so. The weeks ahead are a great time to make progress in this direction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Even if you had a sensitive, nurturing mommy growing up, and even if she continues to play an important role in your life, now’s a good time to learn how to mother yourself better. You’re ready to know how important it is to be your own primary caregiver. I hope you’re no longer resistant to or embarrassed about the idea that part of you is still like a child who needs unconditional love 24/7. Get started! Treat yourself with the expert tenderness like a crafty maternal goddess. Rob Brezsny firstname.lastname@example.org
NEWS OF THE WEIRD PROM DRAFT
HERE, KITTY ...
A week before the National Football League held its 2014 Draft Day in May, a large contingent of junior and senior boys staged their own draft day at Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach, California, “dividing up” the available girls to ask to the upcoming prom. As in the NFL, the drafters “scout” the draftees, and a “rule book” notes boundaries (e.g., this year, sophomore girls are eligible). The girls, of course, can decline the invitation, but the draft, as in the NFL, is designed to discourage a selected girl from being “poached” by “competing” boys. Obviously, many in the community expressed horror at the draft — the principal denounced it and urged parents to rein in their sons. One of the drafted girls, though, wrote that the whole thing was just “fun” and “is not, was never, and will never ever be used to objectify the girls.”
In April, Brazilian authorities told reporters folks in remote Ayopaya, needing to recover three motorbikes stolen by two men, tied them to a tree of woe for several days until relatives came up with compensation. The tree was a permanent host for ants that produce a venom with anti-inflammatory properties used to treat arthritis, and though relatives paid up three days later, both men needed hospitalization, one with kidney failure.
SIZE MATTERS, COMRADE
The downfall of Russia-sympathizing Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych in February (which eventually provoked Vladimir Putin’s retaliation against Ukraine) accelerated when his countrymen learned of his startlingly lush lifestyle (gold toilets, a private zoo) — and caught a video glimpse of a nude portrait Yanukovych commissioned of himself by artist Olga Oleynik. Yanukovych, a not-too-buff 63-year-old, was shown reclining and with an undersized male endowment. Oleynik told Agence France-Presse news service she’d done a similar portrait of Putin — more generously endowed — but was “afraid” to show it in public or say if it was actually commissioned by Putin.
Skylar King, 28, filed a lawsuit in Clayton, Missouri, in April against dentist Mark Meyers (and his Same Day Dentures clinic) for a 2009 session in which Meyers somehow obtained King’s consent to extract all 32 of his teeth and provide dentures, promptly after obtaining $5,235 on King’s mother’s credit card. King, seeking treatment for an abscessed tooth, said Dr. Meyers warned he was at risk of “fatal blood poisoning” unless all the teeth were yanked. Dr. Meyers insisted King actually requested the procedure, even though X-rays revealed at least 28 of the teeth were treatable.
As of late March, the Sainsbury’s supermarket in Basford, England, still had an operational ATM on an outside wall even though its screen and controls were only 15 inches off the ground, forcing customers to bend over or kneel down to get cash. A Sainsbury’s spokesman, shown a photo by a reporter of a user squatting “incredibly uncomfortabl[y]),” said no one had complained, but the store would look into moving the machine. The only explanation offered for the placement was that the store is located on a hill.
SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
Wellma “Tootie” Shafer, 46, was fired as a cashier at Last Chance Market in Russell, Iowa, after a customer reported her engaging in “sexual” banter at the register. Her boss, Rick Braaksma, explained, “We cannot ... talk about adult situations in front of other customers.” Shafer sought unemployment compensation; Braaksma challenged it. Among the items Last Chance sells are Wake the F- Up Coffee, The Hottest F-ing Sauce (noted, the label states, for its “ass-burning quality”), and The Hottest F-ing Nuts (all product names using the explicit “F word”), and a state administrative judge granted Shafer benefits, showing (according to an April Des Moines Register item) little sympathy for the store’s contradictory policy.
An unnamed 40-year-old man was charged in Briec, France, in May for a February incident in which his cat knocked over his statue of Buddha, demolishing it. The man apparently so reveres Buddha that, enraged, he tortured the cat by tossing it into his washing machine and setting it for a cycle at 104 degrees F.
WOE IS TREE
For this year’s annual April 25 fundraising project, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) sold a 60-second “message,” digitally downloadable for a donation of $2.11 — but consisting only of silence (“prerecorded” silence). A veterans’ official told Australian Broadcasting Corporation News, “I was a bit dubious [but] ... I’ve seen the enthusiasm at which this is being picked up nationally.”
RESTAURANT OF CHOICE
On-the-lam parolee Mark Royal, 51, spotted in his car by sheriff ’s deputies in Sacramento, California, in March, led officers on a 35mile chase before coming to a stop in front of the Placer County Jail in Auburn and surrendering. He told the puzzled deputies only that “the food is better here” than in Sacramento’s lock-up. The deputies returned him to Sacramento anyway.
THE NOSE KNOWS
John Novak, 48, was taken to a hospital and then arrested after a rough night in May in Buhl, Idaho, in which he threatened his sister with a rifle-bayonet and then tried a home remedy to relieve a snoring problem. With what was later measured as a 0.50 bloodalcohol level (more than six times the state’s presumed-impaired limit), he stuck two straws into his nostrils and slammed a door rapidly into his face, attempting to break the nose (and apparently succeeding, though his exact condition was not reported). He said he’d been drinking “for a week straight,” to dull the anticipated pain.
IF THE SHOE FITS
NOTW has seen the extraordinary discomfort some women embrace just to be able to wear a certain pair of designer shoes. The number and ingenuity of foot doctors serving such women has recently grown. An April New York Times report noted Beverly Hills podiatrist Ali Sadrieh offers a Perfect 10! procedure (aesthetic toe-shortening), a Model T (toelengthening) and Foot Tuck (a foot-padding for high-heel pain). New York’s Dr. Oliver Zong treats High Heel Foot (when the foot conforms to the shape of a stiletto) and Hitchhiker’s Toe (an abnormally large big toe sticking out like a thumb). Some patients get to the point right away, Sadrieh said, bringing in specific cherished shoes and asking which foot-retrofitting procedure would work (though Zong said he turned down one woman who said she’d be OK with nine toes if that’s what it took).
