Doug Fine’s new book, Hemp Bound, takes an in-depth look at the hemp industry—and what it could mean to local farmers.

WHAT’S HAPPENING — BEFORE IT HAPPENS ... AU T H O R

Doug Fine: We Are All Hemp Bound If you’ve been, say, reading PW or our Philly Now news blog over the last few years, we bet you know at least one thing: Marijuana has become an important social and political issue to an ever-growing number of people. And, chances are, it’s going to be legal one day. That doesn’t just mean you’re going to be free to walk down the street while sucking in some pungent smoke from your favorite pipe, or that Pennsylvanians who suffer from ills like glaucoma or post-traumatic stress disorder will be able to treat their pain using chemicals extracted from the marijuana plant. It also means an industry that’s remained untapped for almost 100 years—hemp—will grow in Pennsylvania’s verdant countryside once again. As Doug Fine writes in his new book, Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution, hemp is among the strongest fibers in the world. It’s nutritious. And many believe it could be used as a source of energy, feeding our homes and our vehicles one day. As it happens, Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper, and many of the founding fathers themselves were hemp growers. Pennsylvania, in fact, was colonized as a state for hemp cultivation, and Philadelphia was a main hub in the late 19th century and early 20th century for exports. The problem: When the federal government made marijuana illegal in the 1930s, they took hemp—which contains small traces of THC—with it. Today, you can still buy hemp in stores, but you can’t create it here. Ridiculous, right? In Hemp Bound, Fine looks at the hemp industry from several angles: the economic impact it will have on the U.S., the ability of the plant to wean industry off fossil fuels, and even its ability to heal farm soils that’ve been “damaged after a century of growing monocultures”—the practice of producing a single crop or plant over a wide area over several years. Tonight, Fine will be reading from the book and answering questions. // RANDY LOBASSO Sat., April 19, 7:30pm. Free.

Ulysses Dove was one of Alvin Ailey’s most prominent principal dancer/choreographers. He made visceral magic for the master from 1973 to 1980, coming to Ailey after a spell with the famed Merce Cunningham. After moving from Bennington, Vt. to New York City after college, Dove left an indelible impression on the international dance community, before dying tragically, at the young age of 49, from AIDS. Dove’s demanding, rarely-staged piece Bad Blood, created 30 years ago, is one of four to be performed by the amazing dancers of Philadanco this week. “It’s about relationships,” says Philadanco founder Joan Myers Brown, “but a lot of the lifts are death-defying, and it requires the dancers to have the utmost trust in each other.” Sounds pretty compelling. And it’s a company premiere. What else is on the night’s program? Philadelphia Experiment, by adored Philly native and world renowned hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris. Plus, we’ll get late local great Gene Hill Sagan’s Suite en Blue and modernist choreographer Donald Byrd’s Bamm. How Philadanco’s vibrant, unparalleled talents will pull off these very different and demanding pieces from four distinct visionaries is about as awe-inspiring as the extreme athleticism and grace that comes with their blend of ballet, hip-hop and contemporary dance. This is a rare opportunity to see some of the best artistry in the city. Don’t miss it. // BILL CHENEVERT

Carl Cox Get out those rave pants and glowsticks! Of course, one doesn’t have to be a seasoned club kid to appreciate the majesty of England’s own Carl Cox, but his DJ sets have been known to attract the hardcore rave crew. He’s really only got four proper LPs to his credit, but his latest, 2011’s appropriately titled All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor, is a super-modern take on dance-oriented rave-like sets—long songs, guest vocalists, buildups and releases, a pulsating and constant beat and so on. Dude brings decades of experience to the Electric Factory tonight, though; from BBC DJ slots to massive, undulating festival crowds. Cox isn’t necessarily world famous for his original records, but he’s got a super-long list of compilations and remixes under his belt that’ll no doubt add some muscle to his teeming arsenal tonight. The two places that come to mind when you think about the legendary Brit’s sweat-saturated sets are Ibiza, where his Space residency’s reigned since 2001 and—though Miami’s the fest’s primary home—the roving Ultra Music Festival. Thank goodness Cox has never been bitten by the vile #EDM bug. While he does make electronic dance music, that even has a faint, distant squeak and skronk, this musical chef’s flavors are way more chill. His spin sessions are sure to bring out the full-on tribal give-them-space rave master and the blissful head-bobber in equal proportion. // B.C. 9pm. $35. With Josh Wink + Nic Fanciulli.

The James Hunter Six It’s been a winding road for English blue-eyed soulster James Hunter. The founder of defunct ‘80s trio Howlin’ Wilf & the Vee-Jays, Hunter toiled for years in London’s small clubs through the ‘90s and early 2000s, his dreams of worldwide success as a musician fading. Despite collaborating with Van Morrison during live performances and in-studio recordings, he hadn’t yet carved out his own firm footing as a solo performer. His gravelly, booming tone and ‘50s-inspired aesthetic remained unknown to audiences outside of the Swinging City. Then Hunter had a chance meeting with an American on holiday, leading to a conversation with Rounder Records execs, who agreed to release Hunter’s newest collection of jams to a U.S. audience. The result was 2006’s People Gonna Talk, his first stateside solo release, which was showered with praise from major press, baited by Hunter’s bluesy riffs. After nearly giving up on his music career, Hunter found himself nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album. The Hard Way was his 2008 follow-up, another LP garnering rave reviews. Today, Hunter is well established in R&B circles, carrying the torch of masters like Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson. He’s brought some old friends around for full-time support, rebranding his act as The James Hunter Six, who debuted with last year’s Minute By Minute. Catch Hunter and his cohorts swoon and croon tonight. // DANIEL GELB

MOUTH-WATERING FALL-OFF-THE-BONE TENDER (SLICES OF) DOWN-HOME HEAVEN

Elves? Passé. Unicorns? Too virginal. Vampires? Oh, just piss right off. If you’re going to get together with friends in a big group to dress up as unreal creatures of fantasy, there’s only one way to do it right: zombified. Why do we love evoking the shambling dead so much? Maybe it’s because zombies make a one-stop metaphor for any and every obnoxious goddamned thing that insists on getting in our faces, from tourists in Reading Terminal Market to traffic on the Schuylkill to friends and family urging us to grow up and spawn younglings.

Chicago Underground Duo The Chicago Underground Duo—that’s cornetist/keyboardist Rob Mazurek and drummer/percussionist Chad Taylor—have got real flair, replete with a sound that’s evocative of a much larger ensemble. For 17 years, the two have worked together in a variety of Mazurekled ensembles—Chicago Underground Trio (with bass player Noel Kupersmith) and Chicago Underground Quartet (with Kupersmith and guitarist Jeff Parker) among them—as well as separately with their own respective side projects. With roots in the avant-garde realm of improvisatory jazz, Mazurek and Taylor have managed to transcend into a rarified area of conceptualized music, building layer upon tantalizing layer of rich tonality for thrilled audiences. By blending modern forms of electronica and other synth-heavy genres with a wide tapestry of a robust ethnic folk, the duo’s most recent work, Locus, delves deeper into the world of ambient music and free-form play. It’s clear the men of CUD are incredibly welltrained musicians in their own regard. But by combining the complexity of two virtuosos performing these esoteric arrangements and the actual density of the music itself, the Chicago Underground Duo has bravely set itself apart from its sonic peers, constantly seeking—and finding—new ground to explore in still-yet-undiscovered territories of contemporary jazz. // KENNEDY ALLEN 8:15pm. $15.

A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make reasonable

On April 5, 2014, Oreo and her kittens’ house caught fire. Oreo, along with her human and canine family members, were able to get out safely, but her two-week-old kittens were left inside. Luckily, firefighters were able to pull them out of the house and called Red Paw immediately. Red Paw transported the kittens to the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital, where they spent the night in an oxygen tank. The kittens were discharged the next morning and reunited with mother Oreo; they are currently in foster care while their family recovers.

Ming the Merciful

How a three-legged cat navigates life on the rough-and-tumble streets of Fishtown.

L

BY RANDY LOBASSO • rlobasso@philadelphiaweekly.com ouise spent a year swearing Ming wasn’t hers. It was four years ago, and the Tyler School of Art graduate was fostering the then-8-monthold black cat at the home/studio she rented on Letterly Street in Fishtown. She’d split the responsibilities with a friend, Beverly, though Ming had mostly lived out of Louise’s house. “I resisted for a year, I think,” Louise says, “because I didn’t want to be an irresponsible parent.” She’d fallen in love with the animal but, due to her art residencies, which required a lot of travel, she didn’t think she had the time to care for it. It’s hard to blame her. It wasn’t just the regular doses of medication Ming needed, for worms, that worried Louise. The cat was also missing a hind leg. Louise didn’t think he would live very long. A couple months later, though, while hanging out in the basement and staring longingly at the outside concrete, Ming did something drastic: He broke a loose glass panel in her basement window, hobbled outside and sat in front of the house. Pretty soon, Ming became a regular fixture of the street and the area. Two neighbors who’d taken in several stray cats over the years, including lifelong animal lover Mary Kratofilow, helped care for Ming while Louise was away. A neighbor myself, I’d see Ming hanging out on front stoops along Letterly Street while I was coming home from work or walking my dog in the afternoons. Ming carries himself in a nonchalant manner, hobbling to and from porches, setting up camp under cars and softly purring as other feral cats in the neighborhood—many of whom have not been even quasi-adopted—strut by, pointedly refraining from challenging to the handicapped feline. This is a cat that’s been referred to as a “miracle of a man,” whose missing leg remains a mystery, and whose lack of self-awareness is inspiring.

When I meet Kratofilow, one of Ming’s humans, at her home on Letterly Street, she first introduces me to the four cats she’s taken in over the years: Sweetum, Isis, Ashes, and Dexter. They range from indoor to outdoor cats, and each has their own set of problems. Isis, for instance, was suffering from gingivitis when he was found; Kratofilow had to bring him to the University of Pennsylvania veterinary clinic and get all his teeth taken out. Unable to eat solid food, he’s curled up on Kratofilow’s screened-in back porch next to a bowl of destroyed canned chicken that she’s specially prepared for him to eat without having to chew. Ming, meanwhile, is sitting on Kratofilow’s screened-in front porch, where some holes in the screen point to the other problem many of the cats on this block run into: the opossums. There are at least two of them, and they have a penchant for shitting all over people’s back yards and roofs. Those holes in her porch screen, Kratofilow claims, means one got in just last night. The problem, she explains, is that the cats hanging out back there scare the opossums, who, by instinct, proceed to wet themselves on her porch. Kratofilow has lived on this block since she was nine years old. She spent 35 years of her 43-year waitressing career at Silk City Diner on Spring Garden Street, and, ac-

cording to Louise, she’s the “Saint Francis of the block.” As we speak, Kratofilow does her best to build Ming up in my mind. Despite his obvious handicap, she says, she’s seen the three-legged critter scale fences, catch pigeons and scare away other neighborhood feral cats looking to claim new territory. “He has no self-awareness that he’s handicapped,” adds Louise. “And everyone goes up to him and says, ‘You poor thing, you poor little thing,’ and he’s just like, ‘I’m fine.’” Though art is still a large part of her life, Louise is now studying to become a nurse, and she looks at Ming as an inspiration in her journey toward a new career. “I work with sick people, and how you place your sickness or your illness is a placement of how you manifest your symptoms,” she says. “If you have a really positive attitude about your outcome, you’ll do better. You need a lot of positivity—and that’s how I feel about him. He has three legs, but he runs, he jumps, he plays.” Dogs and cats who seem totally unconscious of their handicap—whether it’s a missing limb or something else— may be just that, but psychological science and theory around the issue seems to show it’s a bit more complex. After all, part of the reason why certain animals have certain rights in our society is that we understand they have sentience: the ability to feel and perceive pain, to suffer. And suffering, argued 19th-century philosopher Jeremy Bentham, is an even more important criteria for a living creature to enjoy basic rights than is the ability to reason, or to talk. In writing about animal consciousness and sentience, Bentham

compared this idea to France’s recent discovery that the color of one’s skin “is no reason why a human being should be abandoned without redress to the caprice of a tormentor.” Loyola University Chicago psychologist James Garborino takes this historic idea farther in his book, The Positive Psychology of Personal Transformation. In it, he argues animals’ lack of self-awareness may actually be an even higher form of enlightenment than we humans can normally experience. As he writes specifically about a dog with three legs:

“He has no self-awareness that he’s handicapped. Everyone goes up to him and says, ‘You poor thing, you poor little thing,’ and he’s just like, ‘I’m fine.’” “The three-legged dog shows no sense of self-pity because of his disability . . . the three-legged dog simply acts within his physical reality. This is an important way in which the acceptance contained within the definition of reality differs from ‘resignation.’ Resignation implies a chronic mourning for loss—perhaps a sad acceptance of reality coupled with longing. That longing is what is absent from the three-

legged dog’s acceptance. He is fully what he is—apparently not besieged by regrets for what might have been or jealousy when he sees what other dogs have, namely four legs.” This state of being, Garborino notes, seems to exemplify one Buddhist definition of enlightenment: to accept reality exactly as it is in each moment. “To me, if I ever get depressed or bummed or down, I just look at my cat and say, ‘He’s making it; what am I worried about?’” says Louise. “I deal with sick people all the time, and it’s fascinating to see how people deal with their illnesses. And I see Ming and his lack of consciousness [reflecting] that.” As a result of people feeling bad for Ming and wanting to care for him, Louise believes he’s consequently become a very friendly cat. If you scratch his right ear—which, she says, you can see Ming attempt to do himself every so often—he’ll be your friend forever.

There are two theories as to how Ming lost his leg.

The unlikely version is the one people tend to suggest first: that someone hurt him as part of some sort of ritual sacrifice. To dig up the likelier reason, I wanted to trace Ming back to his roots. Louise recalls there was a woman who worked with the New Kensington Community Development Corporation who’d been involved in Ming’s babyhood, so I contact them—and eventually get a call back from Laura Semmelroth, who’s the person who first saved Ming. Most likely, Semmelroth opines, Ming’s right hind leg was mangled during birth, perhaps stuck in his mother’s umbilical cord. The mother, instinctively seeing this as a hindrance to her spawn’s survival, then chewed it off; it’s an unpleasant thing that’s been known to happen. Semmelroth and her sister, Robin, have an organization, Flat Iron Wildcats, that has provided medical care

and fostering for feral cats in the Fishtown and Kensington neighborhoods, as well as a trap-neuter-and-release program. The operation is only semi-active at this point, the Semmelroths say; as it happens, Ming’s ad can still be seen on Flat Iron’s website, where he’s described as “our suave-as-suede handsome-as-Humphrey Bogart miracle of a man.” After describing his handicap, it notes that, “however,” he is “one sweet chill fun handsome man who is searching for a forever home where he can be safe and happy. Ming likes a few minutes of cuddle time but mostly just wants to hang out, relax and people watch.” The Semmelroths now call themselves “semi-retired” from their work at the Flat Iron Wildcats; they no longer do fostering, except on very rare occasions, and instead hold one fundraiser each year at Philadelphia Brewing Company to continue a limited amount of work. Once you start an animal-based organization, it’s hard to quit, Laura Semmelroth says, because so few people want to take responsibility for wild urban animals. Today, she estimates, there are thousands of feral cat colonies just in the Fishtown/ Kensington/Port Richmond area, which looks like a pretty good bet: The Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia reported nearly 20,000 animals passing through city organizations in 2013 and re-entering the community either through adoption or neuter-and-release. Given how Ming has to work overtime to get around, his spine has inevitably curved with life—perhaps all the more considering how outgoing he is. Louise takes extra precautions with him, she says. The owner who, at one time, resisted thinking of herself as such, has taken to something she never thought she would: letting him on the furniture. “I let him scratch the chair and come up on the couch,” Louise says. “I never let my cats do this in the past, but it’s the only time his spine is straight. So I do a little physical therapy with him every day. He found the right nurse.” n

The Puppy Problem

The Humane Society’s Tara Loller works to combat the nation’s—and region’s—shameful puppy-mill industry. BY TOM BECK • feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

P

hiladelphia resident and noted animal lover Tara Loller works as the policy implementation manager for the Humane Society of the United States’s Puppy Mills Campaign; more to the point, she’s dedicated her life to improving those of less fortunate beasts that have been abused, hoarded or cruelly neglected. Loller sat down with PW this week to discuss the Puppy Mill Campaign, her time spent working for the PSPCA and the best places to go to adopt a new animal friend. For those who may not know, can you explain what a puppy mill is and why it’s bad? A puppy mill is a mass production of puppies. It’s basically the breeding dogs that suffer the most, because they’re kept for a certain amount of years until they’re no longer worthy for breeding purposes, and then they’re destroyed or passed on to the next person that’s going to try and breed them again. Pennsylvania has an enormous amount of puppy mills. It used to be called the puppy mill capital of the East— Lancaster County, the areas around there. We’ve seen everything from dogs that get shot at the end of their breeding life, drowning tanks on properties, being tossed in piles, things like that—they live really terrible lives. They don’t get the social interaction that dogs crave. They don’t get out of their cages often. They might be in a pen where they can barely turn around and then they’re squished in there with maybe five or six other dogs. So everything from unsanitary conditions where the ammonia level is sky high, feces everywhere, matting, lack of veterinary care, everything that you could think of that could be going on. It’s not a place for man’s best friend. Every year, there are millions of animals put down in the shelters because of puppy mills. People will go out and they’ll buy a dog on the Internet, or they’ll drive out to Lancaster County and they’ll buy a dog, and they’re not realizing this is directly correlated to what’s happening for all the other animals that are in shelters. Because if they were to go to their local shelter and adopt, that saves the life of the dog they adopted, and it also opens a spot [at the shelter] for another dog to get a chance, too. You know, every year there are millions that are put down that are healthy. They’re not behaviorally challenged, they’re not sick, it’s just a numbers game—and the shelters do the best they can, but it’s really, it’s the consumers that need to educate themselves and understand that when you buy from a pet store or you buy online you’re supporting the puppy mill industry. You used to be a PSPCA humane officer working in Philadelphia and Lancaster counties. What did that entail? I [responded to] everything from dog fighting, cock fighting, hoarding situations, backyard breeder cases, abandonment cases—every type of cruelty and neglect. So what are some things you’ve seen? Oh my god— houses that have 200 cats in them and the floor’s covered with feces. I’ve seen abandonment cases where the animal

was—where somebody literally shut the door on them and knew that they were going to starve to death. And when I got there, you could see every single bone. And them trying to eat every single thing that’s around, like plastic just to fill their bellies. I saw backyard breeders, basically people stacking and breeding animals in the basement where the animals lived in complete darkness and their puppies were sold, you know, constantly. And the turnover was just about profit. Dog-fighting cases, you know, where the animals are fought to the end and sometimes you’re there too late and the animal is done. You know, things like that. I saw very very severe cruelty even in instances in which juveniles are doing torturous things to animals. Everything you could not want to think of, I saw. I’ve had cases where a horse was being kept in a back alley. I had a case where there was a hybrid wolf on a chain and the chain was cut into its leg. How do you get pet stores to stop buying and selling puppies from mills? We’ve had over 2,200 pet stores nationally sign the Puppy Friendly Pet Store Pledge, where they convert to the adoption methods, so they’re pulling from local shelters and rescues and adopting out animals instead of buying from a broker or a puppy mill. We have the puppy mill tip line, which basically encourages people to report puppy mills, and there’s a $5,000 reward if the case goes through to conviction. We have the Breeders Surrender Fund for puppy mills that are shutting down—they can choose not to kill their breeding stock and we’ll work with a local rescue to get them vetted and help the rescues place them. These are just a couple of things we do. Right now our big focus is on flea markets—because again, the conditions are terrible and they’re coming from puppy mills. n

PW’s writers realized there’s only one sure way to know what our animals experience each day. So we sat down—to eat their food.

he following conversation is quoted verbatim from a transcipt recorded Thursday, April 3, 2014, in the Philadelphia Weekly conference room, where a team of writers and editors gathered to taste-test a broad sample of pet food, including dry dog kibble; wet cat tuna; bird seed; a bran-mashwith-carrots mixture served to horses as a treat; and gourmet dog cookies. Josh Kruger, columnist, on dry dog kibble: “Ironically, this tastes like vegetarian food. It has a smoky aftertaste. Wow, that’s disgusting.” Brian Freedman, food critic, on dry dog kibble: “If it tastes like something, it tastes like cardboard. Or—almost like soaked dry mushrooms, like dusty dirty. “ [Keeps crunching.] “It’s the finish that’s the worst—morning breath on steroids.” Stephen Segal, editor, on cat tuna: “I know this smells awful, but it definitely does taste like tuna. It’s doesn’t taste as bad as it smells.” [Mixes it with mayonnaise, like a nice tuna salad; general consensus is that the dark-tuna-and-mayo mixture bears a startling resemblance to cheesesteak innards.] “You know... I would eat this with tomato on a cracker.” Randy LoBasso, writer, on cat tuna: [Shakes head.] “I don’t like it. Nah—I don’t like it.” Brian Freedman, food critic, on cat tuna:

“Interesting texture. I know what this is: It’s the meat that’s really close to the bones or the spine. That’s why it has that gamey taste—that pungent finish. It’s literally the same tuna fish we’re eating for lunch, but different parts of the fish.” Randy LoBasso, writer, on bird seed: “The sunflower seeds taste fine, nice and salty. Oh, ew—the salt went away and now I’m left with something really sour, like something city birds would eat out of the trash.” [Spits it into the garbage.] Dan Gelb, writer, on bird seed: “Tastes like air—” [Eats a green seed.] “—oh, there it is. Not good. A treasure trove of vomit.” Randy LoBasso, writer, on bran mash for horses: “This is good. It tastes like something I would pay an organic restaurant twelve dollars for, eat it, enjoy it and feel good about myself.” Josh Kruger, writer, on bran mash: “It has a long-distance-run sort of taste. That makes sense—horses run, right? The carrots add a pleasant sweetness.” [Takes more.] “Wow, it’s really kicking in now! Awesome! This is so much better than meth!” Stephen Segal, editor, on gourmet dog cookies: “Huh. It’s a real cookie... that tastes like bacon. It’s sweet, and the bacon is very light. It’s sort of like eating pancakes and some of the syrup gets on your bacon. I could see these being ‘a hipster fad.” n

SCREEN REVIEW

Transcendence On paper, Transcendence has everything it needs to be a solid technothriller. First-time director Wally Pfister is a longtime cinematographer; his work with Christopher Nolan on the Batman trilogy and The Prestige explains a collection of familiar faces in front of the camera, including Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, and Morgan Freeman, with Paul Bettany, Kate Mara, and Johnny Depp rounding out a cast of veterans. (Depp as AI researcher Will Caster and Hall as his wife Evelyn don’t have much spark, but Paul Bettany as lovelorn Max provides enough equal-opportunity pining to make up for either side of this love triangle.) Jack Paglen’s script—about a dying Will, a ruthless band of anti-tech activists, and what happens when Will uploads and goes viral—benefits from an ethically-sloshy premise in which activists kill programmers and take hostages as Will’s AI heals people with nanotech that makes them what turns out to be very expensive marionettes. And Pfister’s visual style lends the frame a certain slickness, particularly in the stronghold Evelyn builds to Will’s specifications: the multiple reflections of her dozenscreened basement apartment start out as sanctuary and swiftly close in, even as the stark black-and-white solar panels above ground spread like a plague. Still, somehow the whole fails to click. Despite the thriller overtones, the movie lacks any particular urgency, while skimming over its potential character studies. Bettany’s so effective as a clench-jawed rebel that Depp’s two-dimensional avatar doesn’t stand a chance. Ambitious but uneven, Transcendence ends up being nothing we haven’t computed before.

Bad Romance Artificial intelligences make for challenging onscreen relationships. By Genevieve Valentine // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

C

inema’s relationship with technology is complicated. Though the high tech of the moment makes for a snazzy narrative (at least until the cell phones get dated)—it brings with it a healthy veneer of skepticism. Perhaps that’s a natural reflection of behind-the-scenes growing pains that have accompanied Hollywood’s own technological leaps from Technicolor to digital. (It’s a long history; when talkies swept popular imagination in 1927, studios scrambled to dub dialogue over existing silents to meet box office demand, a marketing strategy given the evocative nickname “goat glanding.”) Of course, after every groundbreaking innovation comes a period of unrest and sometimes-rocky change. And there’s no technological advancement that puts obsolescence front and center like artificial intelligence, and its one-two punch of questioning technology and defining humanity. From Metropolis to Blade Runner, science fiction crawls with AIs investigating themselves and determining what humanity remains. (Relative hopelessness is often determined by how much humanity they can salvage; to become fully machine is, almost always, to lose.) AIs absent of humanity often present exercises in Otherness: War Games’ unfeeling WOPR became a nuclear parable; Ghost in the Shell’s Puppet Master yearned to lose itself in humanity. And more than one franchise used AIs to denote a shift in genre: The Terminator began as an implacable enemy, mowing down innocents; in the sequel, he was assigned human traits by young John Connor, an object lesson in absentee fatherhood. Ash nearly strangled Ellen Ripley on company orders in the horror flick Alien; in the action-movie sequel, synthetic Bishop nearly died trying to save her. A third approach to AI literally domesticates technology: AI as relationship metaphor, fully capable of love but—wouldn’t you know it—incapable of making it work. This machine carries the familiar otherness of anyone who lives outside ourselves, and any failings in their programming is a stand-in for what anyone can be without. It’s happened recently, with more reflection on the humans than the AIs: both given intimate stakes (the irrationally-jealous meatspace boyfriend

of Her) and devastating ones (overwhelmed mother Monica who leaves A.I.’s David alone in the wood). Opening this week, Transcendence presents an earnest, middle-of-the-road technothriller in which two supposedly-dueling moral imperatives—the benefits of artificial consciousness versus the necessary curtail of potential abuse—are caught in a fight that’s pretty much settled the first time anti-tech cultist Kate Mara monologues about her time in an AI lab. However, while it might leave some stones unturned in its narrative about abuse of technological power, Transcendence does manage to present a handy parable of a marriage slipping quickly into abusive decay. At first, Will Caster presents his transcendence to his wife Evelyn as a partnership, promising they’ll build a better future together. (Given that Evelyn initially uploads Will above his protests, and doesn’t listen to male friends about the dangerous new Will, her suffering is unfortunately, if accidentally, framed as a renewable regret.) Soon she’s isolated from friends; he demands she be thrilled with developments to which she never agreed; he manipulates his remotecontrolled nanotech-enhanced employees to make romantic overtures that are clearly unsettling and unwanted. His claustrophobic supervision of her is framed as an indicator of his enforced distance, of unemotional Otherness, but his surveillance is a decidedly present act of control. (More than once she looks up at outside surveillance cameras as if gauging her chances.) And when the bottled tension finally explodes, Will’s argument against her anger isn’t that of a fathomless intelligence, but rather an attempt to trump her feelings with what he considers impartial logic. His listing of her biometrics—breathing fast, agitated—isn’t a disinterested diagnostic so much as it is a prey animal being assessed by a predator gone cold. He’s become a machine; they both lose. Near the movie’s end, an avatar of Will kneels by her side, and when she asks if he’s now just a function of the grid, he promises her it was really him all along. It’s a haunting sentiment that echoes like a minor key underneath the love theme—an all-too-human admission that something’s badly wired. 

Foisting Food Fads on Fido Just because something’s become a foodie buzzword doesn’t mean it’s what your pet needs. By Brian Freedman // bfreedman@philadelphiaweekly.com

D

espite what you’ve heard, and regardless of the wheat-free diet you may be considering, you probably have no physiological problem processing gluten. Celiac disease, which affects approximately 1 percent of the population—with another 10 percent or so suffering from non-Celiac gluten intolerance—is a serious condition with farreaching consequences, both dietary and lifestyle-related. But our current fixation on the supposed evils of gluten, which really is nothing more or less than wheat protein, both minimizes the plight of those with Celiac and clouds the alreadyinsanely-fuzzy food dialogue in this country. Still, if you choose to buy into the hype—and like all food fads, the discussion about gluten is cocooned in hype—well, that’s your call: Live a life without real pasta, bread and cereal grains at the table if you choose. But it’s wrong to assume that a gluten-free diet—or, for that matter, any other inexplicably trendy human-food trend—is in any way better for your pet. While Americans choose so often to ruin our lives at the table as a result of trends that will inevitably go the way of Cavariccis and slap bracelets, that story has been told a thousand and three times before. Here’s what’s new, though: Rather, it’s about the many ways in which people are conflating their own supposed healthfulness with the needs of their pets, often to the latter’s detriment. “They are kind of marketing more toward the owners’ likes and dislikes—in the sense that there’s, like, vegetarian diets out there now,” says Dr. Eric Walsh, an internal medicine specialist at the Veterinary Specialty Center in Delaware. “The grain-free is a big one that we’re seeing a lot of because we’re seeing Celiac disease in humans, and they’re worried about glutens in the grains and things like that. There is a lot we’re seeing now, with the marketing, that’s not necessarily in the dog’s best interests.” If you’ve been paying attention to pet-food advertising recently, you’ve likely noticed a significant uptick in the marketing of so-called healthy pet foods. And while no one would argue the merits—both moral and health-related—of feeding our beloved furry friends a diet based on actual, minimally processed foods, forcing our own food-fad-based nutritional beliefs on them could be unhelpful. Like humans, dogs and cats and other household pets can and certainly do suffer from food sensitivities and allergies. That doesn’t mean their allergies are the same as ours. “It’s tough for me to say because I see them [in my practice], but I would say overall [animal food allergies are] not as common as you would think,” Dr. Walsh points out. “We do see it, though. The main thing that dogs and cats are going to be allergic to [is] the animal protein source. So, generally, beef is a big one; chicken, fish sometimes in cats. On rare occasions, you can have a wheat-gluten allergy. There’s one breed in particular, the Irish Setter, that is known to get a gluten allergy, but … like I said, I’m in a kind of niche type of practice where we see the ones with food allergies, but I don’t think it’s as prevalent as it’s kind of laid out to be.” So why the sudden seeming uptick in pets whose owners are feeding them diets based on their own perceived nutritional

“What the hell? Feed me my dinner, please, not yours.”

needs? To quote Mel Brooks in Spaceballs: “Moichandizing!” Walk through the aisle of your pet-food store or poke around online, and you’ll find an ever-growing range of pet food whose ad copy (a) reads more like it was written with human dietary desires in mind and (b) makes it seem as if pets everywhere have been suffering for generations with undiagnosed cases of food allergies. (All of this, of course, does not include people whose legitimate food allergies are so extreme that they cannot have certain items in their house for fear of being adversely impacted themselves, or those with religious beliefs that preclude, say, pork products in their kitchens, regardless of whether they or their pets will be consuming them. But barring instances like these, the manipulations and machinations of the food marketers has crossed over to the realm of Fido and Fluffy with a vengeance.) Dr. Walsh points to an article, written by Lisa M. Freeman, DVM, PhD and DACVN, and Cailin R. Heinze, VMD, MS and DAVCN, titled, “Deciphering Fact from Fiction.” In it, they write that “[g]rains are as ‘biologically appropriate’ as other popular

sources of carbohydrates in pet foods. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation currently being propagated regarding grains in pet foods. Contrary to popular belief, grain-free diets do not offer health benefits over a diet that contains grains, and each diet should be assessed based on its overall nutrient profile rather than individual ingredients.” They continue: “A diet of meat and potatoes for a dog or seafood and peas for a cat is no more or less physiologic than a diet of meat or seafood and rice. However, many people assume that that potato or pea diet is superior only because it lacks grains. Much of this information is due to marketing by manufacturers who are looking for ways to make their diets stand out in a crowded marketplace.” It seems to be working. Marianne Charbonneau, owner of Just Dogs and Cats on Sansom Street, told me that “glutenfree, limited-ingredients people—especially with the chicken jerky scare coming out of China—are much more focused on USA-based, only single-proteins very much, as well as grainfree. The trend that we’re seeing in the human population is clearly being mimicked in the pet population.”

The region’s most widely read alternative weekly newspaper brings you daily updates on Philly food, music, news, culture and more.

Taken in a vacuum, of course, being hyperconscious of what you feed your pet has the potential to be tremendously beneficial: Few right-thinking people would argue that higher-quality pet food is better for your beloved companion than feed of lesser quality. The problem arises when, for example, owners don’t only foist their own unique habits on their pets, but do so in a way that is counter to how a particular animal is supposed to eat in the first place. Cats, for example, are “called obligate carnivores,” Dr. Walsh explains. “Dogs are more like you or I—they’re omnivores, so they eat meat and vegetables—whereas cats are, like, straight carnivores. So it’s like feeding a tiger a salad. It’s not going to work out.” He personally hasn’t seen any deleterious effects first-hand in this regard, but says that, over time, “I would assume that they’re getting some level of malnourishment to some extent.” Dr. Walsh adds: “There are diets out there that have soy-based proteins as well that I’ve seen animals on, and long-term, I haven’t seen them have any negative side-effects. But I would say if you have to feed a cat a diet, and you have a choice, and it’s not like an allergy thing, I would use a meat source.” It all makes sense. But just like the hyperventilating nature of the dialogue regarding the food that humans consume, there is, unfortunately, a fair bit of misinformation and pseudo-science masquerading as received wisdom and a perplexing conflation of the dietary needs of wholly different species.

There are, of course, plenty of excellent petfood options out there; just make sure to read the label carefully. Because just like the foods that human beings eat, there is a great deal of variability, even within a single category. Our beef, for example, can run the gamut from chuck ground on-site by your butcher and sourced from a single healthy cow to the notorious “pink slime” that made headlines a few years ago. You want your pet to eat relatively high-quality food, too. Just don’t take the labels for gospel: Like with food produced for humans, processing facilities are not perfect, and cross-contamination with other protein or food sources can occur, causing an allergic reaction in your pet that has the potential to go misdiagnosed as an allergy to one ingredient when it could, in actuality, be caused by some other ingredient not present on the label but working its magic in the factory’s chopper or chute. Still, the best any owner can do is to feed their pet a diet that is appropriate for them both as a species and as an individual being, respectful of their kind’s overarching dietary needs as well as your particular pet’s personal affinities and allergies, if any. In the end, the best advice seems to be the same for pets as it is for people: Eat a balanced diet, look upon dietary fads and trends with a healthily skeptical eye, parse labels carefully, don’t take anything for granted and use common sense. And if it sounds wrong to feed your pet a particular diet, or if you’re confused, seek out the advice of a professional. 

Diva Death Match It’s Hannah Montana against the “Half-Breed” goddess. Have a nice, clean fight, ladies By Bill Chenevert // bchenevert@philadelphiaweekly.com

I 10.5"

t’s been a solid five months since PW last pitted some divas at each other’s throats. It doesn’t take much: dropping a record or sharing separate city stages on the same night or in the same week, maybe dropping a single that jockeys for another pop master’s top chart position. This week, Miley Cyrus and the incomparable Cher visit the Wells Fargo Center six days apart. Typically, in the Diva Death Match world, I’ll take that as a white glove to the face—a frigid and intimidating stare. En garde! We’ve applied the same five point-earning categories in every installment of this diva-celebrating contest, and Cyrus and Cher are no exception. They’re suited up—Cher in a Bob Mackie robe and Miley in plastic-wrap coochie cutters—and they look ready to do battle. Let’s see what happens! ‘HOODNESS Neither of these gals have a shred of real-deal street cred. But Cyrus tries (way too hard) to claim urban “realness” and—in grand fashion, thanks to “We Can’t Stop”—fails pretty miserably. Her large women-of-color props are red flags. You ain’t ‘hood, girl: You can throw on a grill and light up a blunt, but we all know you’re Billy Ray’s former-child-star daughter from Richkidville, Tennessee. Cher, on the other hand, has been around so long and done so many legit collaborations with artists who have genuine “urban radio” appeal, she’s like the O.G. of divas. You do not fuck with her. Cyrus: 1, Cher: 3

You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. There are thousands of teens in foster care who would love to put up with you.

SINGLES AND SALES Clearly, if we were looking at sheer numbers, Cher has a whopping 25 albums to her name, including ‘98’s wildly successful Believe. But Cyrus’ Bangerz is less than a year old, and it’s platinum. Her singles have moved many units, and she shows no sign of slowing down. At this point, she’s poised to keep selling millions of records by shitting on the mic in the studio and having Nelly rap a verse while Mike WiLL Made It cleans it up. The children will cough it up on iTunes. That doesn’t stop Cher superfans from going out and buying every new record she puts out on vinyl, disc, tape and any other hardcopy format you can find. Cyrus: 5, Cher: 4 FIERCENESS The all-encompassing X-factor can really give a gal

the edge. And fierceness can register on the radars of style, grace, dance abilities, showmanship, star power or simply glamour. There are certainly droves of queer people and folks born before 1970 who will swear that Cher is the epitome of a fierce diva. She has that regal, self-aware, surreal superstar status but doesn’t even seem to try—she’s like the Queen of Barely Moving. And while I’ve applauded Cyrus’ go-fuck-yourself attitude and blatant potsmoking badassery, she ain’t that fierce. Who will ever forget her gross MTV Video Music Awards performance, backing up that flat azz onto Robin Thicke’s prison-striped crotch? S’gonna be tough to live that lowpoint down. Cyrus: 2, Cher: 4 VOCAL CHOPS Strangely, this is a pretty weird category for these two. Do you love Cher because she can wail like a goat with elegance? Do Cyrus superfans not love her lawnmower hum? In the last half of her career, Cher’s taken to over-the-top ridiculous and superproduced dancefloor anthems that seem like pretty trite gay fodder. (Have you given 2013’s Closer to the Truth a spin? Listen to “Take It Like A Man,” and try not to smirk and raise eyebrows.) But it’s still great. And even though Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” doesn’t have much room for vocal performance, “Wrecking Ball” and “Adore You” do. Cher’s looking strong, but Cyrus turned up the heat in this round. Cyrus: 3, Cher: 3 CLOUT Cher was in “Moonstruck,” and her video for “If I Could Turn Back Time” in ‘89—Miley wasn’t born yet—was banned by MTV for her risque clothing. She’s got an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy, Golden Globes and a Cannes award. And though Cyrus has probably got some Kid’s Choice Awards on a mantle somewhere and will pick up a few boring Billboard Music Awards, she ain’t got shit on Cher. The ref—oh, look, it’s Cyndi Lauper!—raises Cher’s bejeweled arm. Maybe next time, youngster. Cyrus: 4, Cher: 5 TOTALS: Cher: 19, Cyrus: 15.

T

here’s something very early-Annie-Leibovitz about Philadelphia photographer Dustin Fenstermacher, a name some people don’t believe is real. (It is.) With his recognizable editorial, portrait and documentation work, jumping between weightlifting competitions, lingerie football games, comic-cons and gun shows, Fenstermacher—like the illustrious Leibovitz—captures an honesty in the weirdness. And only the best can manage to make it look easy. Aside from also shooting for major and indie publications, Fenstermacher shoots quirky scenes and tells stories without over-orchestration. Even at the couple dozen cat shows he’s covered—and that’s kind of where the similarities end—he revealed the furry madness behind feline modeling. And with the recent release of How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity, the book he co-authored with Patricia Carlin, the cat thing has become a very good thing. We’ll get to that later. Whether he’s lurking behind a gun rack to photograph teens drooling over assault rifles, watching as bodybuilders get painted orange or skipping town to shoot Spring Break in Cancun, Fenstermacher does not shy away from peculiar challenges. In fact, it’s his self-appointed job to find them. PW: Why did you go to Spring Break? Dustin Fenstermacher: I never went to Spring Break before in my life. So I figured, why not go when I’m 34 and be, like, twice the age of some of the people who might be there. I wanted to see if what I heard was true—that you might think you’re the creepiest old guy there, but there’s always someone creepier. I like going places I’ve never been before, even though sometimes it’s going to be where I know I’m going to maybe not have the best time.

Shot caller: Dustin Fenstermacher does not shy away from photographic challenges.

It does seem like a hilarious form of worthwhile self-torture. That seems to be what I do with my projects. It’s like, all right, I’m going to go to this thing and document it, and see if I don’t hate myself for going.

And you never met the writer or illustrator. What a great 21st-century sort of collaboration. Yeah, it’s really cool. And a lot of it can work. It makes sense. The popular cat blog DoodleCats posted an entire blog post about the book, and she used some of the tips they gave in the book to make her cat an Internet celebrity. Within a day, there were already [hundreds of ] likes or whatever. That might not be a lot for [established cat celebrities] Lil Bub or Maru, but it’s pretty good.

But you’re totally immersed. Oh, I’m fascinated. How do you convince a stranger to give you something really honest and not worry about the camera? I tend to find that the photos I like the best are [taken] either before or after a shoot. When somebody’s caught off guard in a way, then it’s more their natural self. Like, “Oh, I’m testing the lights! Don’t mind me; I’m still testing the lights.” And people are super loose and just don’t fall into how they think they should act in front of a camera. When I look at really honest-looking shots, I always wonder: How did they get that? Maybe that’s it: Always ask that question, and always be interested in trying new things. Yeah, I totally agree. I think a lot of it also has to do with just gaining a person’s trust. I sometimes think you can’t get that unless you’re working with people who are either comfortable with cameras or at least comforted by your presence. How did the book How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity come to be? My friend and I pitched this book to the excellent independent Philly book publisher Quirk Books. It was silly, and they passed. But they got in touch with me about

taking photos for this book, and I kind of wept a little on the inside, because I had to go and photograph more cats, which I’m kind of … a little over? But it’s really cool. The book is a satirical guide; it’s actually super hilarious. I was wondering why I needed to shoot with a lot of open space, at first, but then I saw the drawings and how everything just clicked together.

So, is this the end? Is this your cat exclamation point? Yeah, maybe. If you’re shooting a personal project, an event, or there’s some mysterious idea you’re chasing, how do you know when you’ve got it? Isn’t doubt and self-loathing an inherent part of this whole process? You shoot it, and you never know. One of the best lessons I’ve learned is that you can’t be a perfectionist. You can shoot and shoot, and you just have to be able to stop at some point. Or work with what you’ve got. 

I’m a 26-year-old girl, and my boyfriend is bi. I assumed he would be less jealous than the average man. After all, a lot of bi men have faced irrational jealousy from women. But my BF is more jealous than average. He accuses me of having slept with my male friends in the past. He makes negative comments about how many people I’ve hooked up with. If I do admit I was involved with someone (or even that I think someone is cute), he gets really upset. He knows he’s insecure. He says he’s working on it. But do people grow out of this kind of thing? Also, this is especially unfair given that I don’t object at all to the shirtless snapchats he gets from guys he used to hook up with. Torn In Re Envious Drudgery Your boyfriend is not insecure, TIRED, your boyfriend is an asshole. You shouldn’t have to put up with slut-shaming or emotionally abusive behavior, TIRED, not even when—especially not when—it comes disguised as “jealousy and insecurity.” Your boyfriend is not, as he would have you believe, the tormented victim of his own psychic demons. He is tormenting and victimizing you—he is abusing you—and conning you into giving him a pass by crying to you about his bullshit insecurities. While some people overcome these particular strains of assholery, it usually takes being dumped several dozen times before a guy like your boyfriend starts to do the hard work of unpacking and dismantling his assholery. The longer someone like your boyfriend gets away with this kind of assholery, the longer he’ll be an asshole. So do your boyfriend and yourself a favor, TIRED, and DTMFA. Lastly: I have a hunch your jealous, controlling, emotionally abusive boyfriend is playing a “good offense is the best defense” game with you. By which I mean to say: He’s probably doing more— a lot more—than just swapping shirtless pics with guys he “used to” hook up with. His jealous fits about your imaginary infidelities may be meant to distract you from his actual ones.

man. I’d like that man to be you, sweetheart. But you’ll have to compromise on the only-one-nightstands-with-women thing if you want to be with me. Because, like I told Dan Savage, I’m simply not willing to sacrifice that. Not even for you.” If you’ll settle for nothing less than polyamory, FEM, your boyfriend has to be told that in unambiguous terms. No mixed messages, no hedging. The risk, of course, is that your boyfriend will dump you. But if he doesn’t want what you want, FEM, then he’s not the right guy for you, is he? I am a heterosexual woman. There is no doubt in my mind that my boyfriend of four years loves women. My boyfriend says he is straight, but I sometimes think he is attracted to men. My gay best friend also thinks my boyfriend is attracted to men. Example: My boyfriend loves getting attention from this one gay waiter. My boyfriend goes out of his way to talk to him, the waiter responds with flirtation, and all the while, the gay waiter ignores and is rude to me. I asked my boyfriend if he had a crush on this waiter, and he got mad at me. What does this mean? Worried Over Really Repressed Yearnings Your boyfriend could be straight and comfortable with his sexuality and attracted to the occasional (rude) gay waiter. Some (rude) gay waiters are simply irresistible, and some straight-identified guys aren’t 100 percent straight, just as some gay- and lesbian-identified folks aren’t 100 percent gay or lesbian. While some folks are bi and closeted, lots of people are only so rarely attracted to someone of the same or opposite sex that the straight label (or the gay/lesbian label) feels more comfortable and more accurate than the bi label. As for your gay best friend, WORRY: Some (dumb) gay men are convinced that all straight-identified men are gay, bi, or persuadable. The more attractive the man, the more convinced these (dumb) gay men are. The fact that some straight-identified men have been known to fuck the odd (rude) gay waiter or (dumb) gay best friend only fans the flamers.

I am a 22-year-old bisexual female, and I have a boyfriend who I love. He says he wouldn’t mind if I hooked up with other girls, as long as it was a one-night thing. That’s not what I want. Ultimately, I want to have a boyfriend and a girlfriend. He is not keen on the idea. He says he feels like he is not enough for me. I reassure him constantly that this is not the case. He is everything I want in a man, but I still crave a woman’s company. How can I approach this subject with him so that he will understand and be willing to accept it? I love him and want to be with him, but I also want a woman in my life, and I am not willing to sacrifice that. Feeling Emotionally Maligned

I’m a 23-year-young woman, and I’ve been with my boyfriend for more than five years. We have a toddler together. We are best friends, and I love him very much. However, when we got together, I hadn’t had many partners and he’d already been around the block. And now he’s just not doing it for me in the bedroom. The things that used to make my toes curl now just make them twitch a little. I think I want to have sex with other people. It’s not that I’m not sexually attracted to my boyfriend anymore. I just want something different. But I don’t want to break up with my boyfriend. I love him and I love our family. I’m just too damn horny. What do I do? She’s Horny And Growing

Your boyfriend may be everything you want in a man, FEM, but he’s not everything you want. If you won’t sacrifice your dream of having a woman in your life—for him or any other man—then stop encouraging him to hope otherwise. When he says, “I worry that I’m not enough for you,” you should be saying, “You’re all the man I need, honey, but it’s true: You’re not enough for me.” No more mixed messages, FEM. Say this to him: “I don’t wanna have one-night stands with random women. I wanna have a relationship with one woman and a concurrent relationship with one

You start by telling your boyfriend that the things you’ve been doing in bed for five years—the shit that used to curl your toes—isn’t doing it for you anymore. Tell him you don’t want to break up, tell him you’re still attracted to him, but also tell him you’re bored by your routine. Get to work on expanding your repertoire, developing some new moves, and sharing your fantasies. One fantasy you can toss on the table: your desire to have sex with other people. If he’s opposed, SHAG, ask him how feels about you two being with other people together, e.g., threesomes, sex parties, and swingers clubs. 
