Say it loud! Philadelphia Black Gay Pride has a fabulous slate of hearty parties on deck through Sunday. (Photo by J.R. Blackwell)

WHAT’S HAPPENING — BEFORE IT HAPPENS ... LG BT

Philadelphia Black Gay Pride Over the past couple years, Philadelphia Black Gay Pride has experienced a renaissance of sorts. Celebrating 15 years strong with new, young leadership and ambitious partnering with a ton of different community friends, the group’s 2014 Pride celebration is straight-up nuts. It’s so robust, we can’t even scratch the surface. (For real: Check out the thorough deets at phillyblackpride.org.) In fact, festivities are already in full swing, having kicked off Sunday with a Mr./Miss Philadelphia Black Gay Pride at the Adrienne and a night for the youth at the Attic on Monday. The real meat-and-potatoes of PBGP’s lineup, though, launches tonight: Tabu’s playing host to a College Night party called Frat House, a student cutie edition of Josh Schonewolf’s Ratchet Wednesday with appropriately-themed drinking games and giveaways. Then on Thursday, there’s a One Night Stand Poetry Slam at 4 Fathers, where some well-deserved finger snaps will be doled out, and a $75 prize goes to the best slam poet. Friday night, the weekend really gets turned up with an early ball (6 to 8pm) at The Stadium Holiday Inn in South Philly that they’re calling a “Party Monster Mini Ball Deluxe.” Yes, there will be categories, even a contest for Grand Prize Performance as a House—the winners take home $1,000—that’s certain to be worth the trip. Still, there’s so much more: PBGP’s Mind, Body & Soul Fair; a clever riff on speed dating via its “Single in the City” mixer; a Broadway brunch with the cast of Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, including the super-fab, Tony-nominated Sheryl Lee Ralph, and a finale day party at the RAW Courtyard for some extended daytime drinking in the sun. There are also some sweet Uber deals to be had, plus tons of latenight party offerings, thanks to Christopher Hunter Entertainment’s Simply Christopher—including his super-fly “Sex on the Ceiling” White Party on Sunday, featuring R&B sweetie Sevyn Streeter. Happy Pride, brothers and sisters in LGBTQAness. Philly, let’s do this! // BILL CHENEVERT Through Sun., April 27. Various times and locations. phillyblackpride.org

Philadelphia can take a lot of credit for America’s political foundation, and true children of Philly know how to enjoy a good, gut-busting laugh. When politics meets a good time in this city, it must be in 1812 Productions’ hilarious This Is The Week That Is, the all-comedy theater company’s live “Saturday Night Live meets The Daily Show” extravaganza. The production’s enjoying its seventh consecutive year of comedic excellence, continuing its home-grown tradition of reporting both local and national political news with a satirical twist. Whether the target is Broad Street or Pennsylvania Avenue, it’s all fair game to This Is The Week That Is. “It’s got some musical elements, and it’s super funny,” cast member and external relations director Dave Jadico tells PW. “There are some improvisational moments, but we rewrite a portion of the show, which changes weekly and sometimes night to night. There’s always something going on. This year, we’re certainly looking at Russia and the Ukraine quite a bit because they’ve been so prevalent in the news as of late.” Jennifer Childs, TITWTI’s creator and director, and news correspondent Don Montrey are credited with the bulk of the writing, but the cast all add their own unique contributions. “The six weeks out of the year that we do this has become a bit of a tradition,” Jadico says. “And we poke fun at both sides equally, so everyone can have a good time—regardless of which side of the aisle they’re on.” // KENNEDY ALLEN

PSF Kick-Off Party: Science Carnival After Hours

Citron + Rose

The most ironic part about being a nerd as a grownup is the realization that, in adulthood, nerds are the cool kids. Yet, by the time you’re an adult, you really don’t give a shit about being cool anymore. (Thanks for that plot twist, Universe!) Just know this: Nerds party heartily. And, to kick off the fourth annual Philadelphia Science Festival, party we shall. As part of the 10-day-long celebration’s launch soiree, Science Carnival After Hours, attendees of legal drinking age may enjoy “activities created just for adults.” Even better is that we get our own beer, with Yard’s Brewery supplying the 2014 Official Science Festival draft. In addition to the revelry and like-minded company, good followers of geekdom may also enjoy the speaking stylings of Dr. Ron Eglash, professor of science and technology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Eglash, a Fulbright scholar with expertise in cybernetics and systems engineering, will very likely offers greetings and salutations to all present, followed by Philly’s own Nintendo-geek-turned-composer Paul Weinstein, aka Chipocrite, booping and beeping his way through a performance. Weinstein has gained national attention and fame for his novel way of creating original musical compositions using Game Boys as instruments (See page 12 for more). Whatever your scientific interest or persuasion, this event’s a great way to demonstrate that not only have the nerds become victorious in adulthood: We’re downright magnanimous about it. And, really, can you blame us? // JOSH KRUGER 6:30pm. $10-$15. Franklin Institute, 222 N. 20th St. 215.448.1346. philasciencefestival.org

Philly Brick Fest LEGO Fan Festival With over 70,000 square feet of creations and interactive activities, the Philly Brick Fest—a celebration of all that can be constructed with LEGO—looks to be an explosion of imagination through the medium of those pegged plastic blocks. “The idea behind the event,” says Chad Collins, its organizer, “is to give fire to the youngest LEGO builders. As a parent, you see the potential, and you see it unlock something in your child’s brain that helps in engineering and helps them in math and science.” Firing up young minds with LEGO is something about which Collins knows a great deal. Not long after he gave his daughter her first LEGO set, she became so enamored with the toy, she requested her own YouTube channel to talk about them. Your Creative Friends, the show the two of them do together, currently has over 16,000 subscribers. But most importantly, it plugged Collins into the LEGO building community that made Philly Brick Fest possible. Immense LEGO displays that portray scenes of our city, the Liberty Bell and the Love Park sculpture will be featured, as will a Brick Fest Derby, where you can build your own derby car and race it down the 20-lane, 35-feet-long track. The Brick Fest Theater will show LEGO animated videos and present The Brick Show trivia game. And most importantly, there will be a “freebuild” area, with tens of thousands of LEGO bricks ready to be played with by inventive kids of every age. // JARED AXELROD Through Sun., April 27. $15.

In what’s turned out to be one of the most exciting revelations of 2014, female altcountry’s love affair with dark and heavy rock has morphed into a seemingly triumphant genre, pulling together some of the freshest talent in the game. Jessica Lea Mayfield rounds out a very fine trilogy of young women who have all put out their third albums in the first third of 2014—joining Lydia Loveless and Angel Olsen in turning in banner years in their respective careers. Mayfield’s brand new one, Make My Head Sing…, has surprising flecks of heft along the lines of Nirvana and Dinosaur, Jr. The Akron native’s ties to Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) are welldocumented; his presence as a player and producer on her first two yielded gentler, more pensive, wounded and emotional records. But this one, without her fellow Ohioan in the studio, has materialized a bit more sludge and grit—and it’s awesome. The opener, “Oblivious,” feels like the kind of rage and energy Marnie Stern’s trail-blazed for female shredders. “Do I Have The Time” tweezes out the sweet sadness of Hope Sandoval, while “Unknown Big Secret” idolizes My Bloody Valentine’s drawn-out drone. Mayfield’s cited Nick Cave and Dave Grohl as spirit musicians, and like them, she’s just going for it, a true original on the rise giving zero fucks about conforming to a specific genre or aesthetic. That’s the kind of rock musician we cherish and revere. // B.C.

and started running it on a Game Boy emulator on my computer right away. As time went by, I continued to really connect with the concept—and the rest is history.

aul Weinstein, a.k.a. Chipocrite, is a musician and composer. The big difference between him and Mozart— you know, aside from being alive and in Philly today—is this: Instead of using a piano to make beautiful music, Weinstein uses Nintendo Game Boys. He’ll be playing at the Science Festival kickoff party at the Franklin Institute, 6:30pm on Fri., April 25.

Chipocrite

“Specific molecules within an organism can generate a 24-hour clock that synchronizes to the day:night cycle. I’m very conscious of the importance of sleep. I make sure I get enough.” —Amita Sehgal, neuroscientist at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, who’ll discuss “Sleep: A Bedtime Story” at the Franklin Institute’s Fels Planetarium 6:30pm on Wed., April 30

in my music for a pretty long time, way before I understood anything about how video-game sound chips work, or what kinds of sound waves I was really trying to emulate. I’ve always found the sounds of old systems—NES, Game Boy, Commodore 64, etc.—to be incredibly rich and unique, kind of like vintage synthesizers. And even though I always knew the technology was extremely limited, I liked the idea of trying to create more with less. Initially, I was hoping to find some kind of pedal or processor to make a live guitar or a bass guitar sound like that, but it was difficult to find something that [sounded] genuine and realistic. At some point, I discovered that people were actually repurposing old consoles as instruments themselves, instead of just emulating the sound with other instruments. It took me a while to figure out exactly how it all worked—but lucky for me, there’s a fantastic group of people in Philly doing this kind of thing. In early 2009, I attended an event called 8static, which is a monthly concert that showcases “chiptune” performers; the concert itself was amazing, but the real bonus about attending that particular show was that one of the musicians, Animal Style, gave a pre-show workshop on how to make music with Game Boys. That short presentation was enough for me to realize that that was how I was going to get the sound I always wanted. I went home that night, purchased and downloaded the software

when they see or hear me play is: “What game is that song from?” That can be a little frustrating, because I’m actually playing music that I composed or arranged from scratch. I fully understand why someone would think that I’m playing some kind of game, and it’s a strange concept at first for sure—but if you think about the Game Boy as an instrument instead of just a console, it’s really not drastically different from writing and performing electronic music with any other kind of computer. Once listeners get over that hurdle, I’d like to think they think something along the lines of, “Wow, so the Game Boy is being used as an instrument! I’ve always liked the music from those old games I used to play, so that makes sense!” Especially when you hear it coming through a nice, powerful sound system instead of a tiny speaker or some crappy headphones, you really realize that those old sound chips are capable of some seriously heavy sounds that easily hold up next to other modern electronic music.

Okay, Nintendo Death Match! Who would win in a fight: Samus Aran or MegaMan? It all really depends on

what they’re equipped with. I’d have to argue Mega Man, especially if he’s got the Metal Blade from Mega Man 2, which I would argue is the greatest weapon in video game history. It’s powerful, but not overwhelmingly powerful; it can shoot in eight directions; and it doesn’t deplete so quickly that you run out of it too often. Don’t get me wrong, Samus is pretty badass, but let’s be honest, she doesn’t have any add-on as awesome as the Metal Blade.

Chad Forbes

at the end of my two-year training, I was hired into the company permanently as a marketer. I think it’s safe to say that working in the food industry around talented chemists and food scientists is what sparked my interest in the science of food, and not the other way around. Fermentation was the perfect fit for me: It combined the science-y side that stoked my curiosity with the slow, whole-food, preservation side. The more organic aspects of fermentation are a much better fit with my personal taste and sense of what works better for our bodies and our planet than the foods that I worked on in my former career.

Social neuroscientist

H

ow does our brain’s perception of stereotypes affect how we think about people who we expect to fit those stereotypes? Exploring questions like that one is why Chad Forbes, an assistant professor of psychological and brain sciences at the University of Delaware, was recently dubbed a “Rising Star” by the American Psychological Association. Forbes will take part in a Science Festival discussion on “Love, Lust and Loathing: The Science Behind Our Strongest Emotions” at 6pm on Wed., April 30 at Frankford Hall.

How has studying food changed your understanding of life? Fermentation has given me a much deeper appreciation of

what we don’t know about our world. The role that the microbes that live in, on and around us play is just starting to get its proper coverage in the realm of scientific research. I used to be a typical American: bottle of hand sanitzer in my purse, anti-bacterial hand soap in my bathroom. Delving into fermentation has taught me how utterly ridiculous it is to fear bacteria—our bodies contain 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells)—and how our national bacteria-phobia could well be linked to some of the bizarre health issues that seem to impact so many more of us than they used to.

You study the neuroscience of prejudice— how the brain perceives and receives information when witnessing social stigma in action. How does that influence your everyday life? It has a profound influence—I think

about that stuff constantly! I often joke with my grad students that once you learn about all this stuff, you’re never the same. You find yourself staring at strangers passing by, [reflecting on] what does your brain do, and how do you feel when they make eye contact with you; observing groups, and forgetting to participate in the conversation; and, when interacting with people from different ethnicities, obsessively monitoring your mind and body for evidence that you might be acting in a biased way towards them. It can make for some awkward moments, to say the least—but I still get invited to parties every now and then. Within this, there’s the social psychological aspect of my research, as well: knowing there’s inherent bias and injustice towards women and ethnic minorities still deeply embedded in our society. That places a heavy weight on my daily thoughts, to say the least.

What’s the single most remarkable thing you’ve learned? That the brain and social behav-

ior are incredibly complex! The brain does so many things we’re not even aware of. For instance, do you know about the blind spot in your field of vision? Why don’t you see it right now? Because your brain fills in the missing information for you! The brain does this at the social level as well, by defining our social reality, filling in the missing information the best it can— which can include stereotypic information—filtering information that is relevant to you and biasing your social perceptions accordingly. Yet you walk around thinking you’re a fairly rational person who’s in control, for the most part. [When you consider] that this all happens on the order of milliseconds… and can elicit behaviors that are either more predictable or completely novel, you have one complicated puzzle. But it’s an awesome puzzle!

So tell us this: Are Philadelphians vociferous sports fans because we choose to be, or because the rest of the country perceives us to be as such? Ha—the answer

is likely both! People can treat others and/or expect them to behave in a way that’s consistent with a group stereotype and the targets of those stereotypes invariably behave accordingly. It’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy. If people continue to behave in a way that’s consistent with expectations, over time they can internalize the stereotype to the point it actually becomes part of who they are as a person (i.e., they’ll act that way regardless of whether others expect them too). So in this instance, Philadelphians may act like vociferous sports fans because the rest of the country expects us to, but over time we’ll be vociferous because we feel that’s the type of fans we are!

Mindfulness of eating is something a lot of folks talk about. Do you find your work has influenced your eating experience? I don’t know about mindfulness of eating, but

fter a past working in “Big Food,” as she calls the corporate food industry, Philadelphian Amanda Feifer now pursues the timeless technique of fermentation to create handmade consumable foods, including cheeses.

mindfulness of how crazy our food supply is? Definitely. The processes of vegetable fermentation or cheese-making or brewing all take time. They also take ingredients that we take for granted [we can find] at our local grocery stores—things people used to have to work hard to get. Fermenting foods makes me consider the work that’s necessary to put any processed food or head of lettuce in our shops, and it makes me much happier to pay a potentially higher price for the unbelievable value I get at a farmers’ market or at Fair Food.

Jared Piazza

Moral psychologist Should you go vegetarian or keep practicing bacon love? It’s a question that, however much you consider it, ultimately requires a leap of faith to put into practice. To discuss the mental processes involved, the Science Festival presents “To Veg or Not to Veg? The Science Behind Vegetarianism” at 6pm on Wed., April 30. One of the speakers: Penn postdoctoral fellow Jared Piazza, who chatted with PW about his studies of the interrelation of psychology and faith.

So what particularly drives you to study the relationship between morality, which is a philosophical concept, and religiosity, which is arguably an anthropological concept? Theists believe that God is the author of morality, and are often skeptical of secular attempts to establish an ethical system based on human rationality or human intuition—especially if you are a theist who believes in original sin (the notion that humans are naturally drawn towards sin, despite their best intentions). Non-theists more often see morality as a human construction—for example, a system of

ing can be a bit rough, though. When I have the urge to ferment those particular vegetables, I do it in the basement away from the noses of civilized people.

agreed upon rules for society. I’m interested in studying how these different stances towards morality—beliefs about where moral truths comes, whether God or man should determine right from wrong—affect the way people make decisions, particularly when faced with difficult moral dilemmas, such as whether it might better to lie to spare someone’s feelings than to tell them the truth, whether it’s OK to harm animals to develop a treatment for Alzheimer’s, and so on. I often find that religious and non-religious people talk past one another or reach different conclusions about what to do in these dilemmatic situations, and this may have to do with their different meta-ethical beliefs.

as forgiving. Likewise, they found that countries with populations that tended to believe in hell had lower crime rates than countries with populations that tended to believe only in heaven. In a study I did with Jesse Bering and Gordon Ingram years ago, we found that children were more likely to follow rules in a challenging game if they believed they were being watched by an invisible woman when they played the game then if they thought they were unsupervised. So I do think there is something to believing that God is a watchful arbiter of justice that is pro-socially motivating for many people.

How does the fear of a vengeful God affect human behavior? Does a belief in a benevolent God change this calculus? There’s some

ence is that it does not require faith. It provides answers and solutions to questions that, when done right, anyone anywhere on the planet can design an identical experiment in an attempt to replicate, so that we do not have to rely on faith or intuition to determine whether we should or should not believe something. It only requires that you get your hands a little dirty—and manage to successfully obtain a research grant. n

interesting contemporary work on this by Azim Shariff and Ara Norenzayan. They have found that how people view God—whether they view God as primarily punitive and exacting or benevolent and forgiving—does influence how people behave. In particular, in one experiment, they found that people are less likely to cheat if they view God as punishing, but more likely if they view God

The spring elections are coming fast. In a closed-primary state like ours, that means we only get to vote for some of what we care about.

W

hen Pennsylvanians come out to vote on May 20 for the leaders and representatives of their parties, most of us are going to have to be either Democrats or Republicans to have a real impact—especially at the state level. But for 14 years now, one local organization, Independent Pennsylvanians, has been lobbying to change that. “I am one of over a million voters in PA who will help pay for the cost of holding these very important first round of elections,” says Jenn Bullock, the group’s director. “But I am banned from voting.” Well—she’s not banned, exactly. But as an independent, as long as she’s not willing to change her party affiliation—and, like hundreds of thousands of voters across the state, she isn’t—then there’s a limit to how much she’s able to rock the vote on primary day. She can vote for ballot measures; she can vote in the special election for the at-large Council seat; but she can’t vote for a state representative candidate in either primary. If City Councilmembers were up for election this year, she couldn’t vote there, either. Based in Center City Philadelphia, Independent Pennsylvanians have fought on behalf of voting rights based on both closed primaries and third party candidates’ right to equal ballot access. As Bullock notes, they’re an activist group “working to strengthen the power of the people, not the two-party system, which rigs elections so that independents are shut out.” The group plans to hold “informational protests” across the state on primary day, beginning at the Warwick Hotel at 17th and Locust at 8am. Pennsylvania is one of 11 “closed primary” states around the country. This means you generally need to be a registered member of a political party holding a primary to vote in it. If you’re not affiliated with a party, you can’t vote for the really important stuff—such as governor, for instance—until November, when the Republicans, Democrats and third parties have each chosen their respective candidates. Closed primaries, proponents say, are clearly in the best interest of any given political party: Its dedicated base chooses the most representative candidate, and then the greater voting population chooses among the parties’ flagbearers. But that’s an issue that’s become pretty contentious over the years. Not just because it polarizes voters in the general election, but also because, as Pennsylvania taxpayers, we all, including independent and unaffiliated voters,

help pay for the primary elections—elections of which our Constitution is supposed to guarantee as “free and equal.” During the long Democratic presidential primary between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in 2008, many Pennsylvanians switched their voter registration so they could participate in the historic electoral moment. Some of those voters, as was widely reported at the time, were Republicans willing to change their affiliation and vote for Clinton to stymie Obama’s momentum and prolong the primary—the so-called “Operation Chaos” campaign, as radio host Rush Limbaugh dubbed it. At the time, it was considered a slap in the face to the democratic process—but, of course, if the state had an open primary, those Republicans could have headed to the polls and voted, anyway. The Supreme Court has ruled that it’s within a party’s First Amendment Rights to hold closed primary elections. Meanwhile, opponents of the current system argue they should have a First Amendment right to not have to pay for someone else’s selection process. Different states have come up with different ways to deal with this. Probably the most radical idea currently in play is what California, Louisiana, Nebraska and Washington do. In those states, all candidates, regardless of party affiliation, appear on a single primary ballot. Voters choose their top two picks, and those two go up against each other in the general election. For the time being, Pennsylvania is stuck with closed primaries—which may well contribute to long-term political gridlock in the state. “In the states where parties hold closed primaries,” Josh Kraushaar wrote in the National Journal last year, citing a 2012 Third Way study, “the voter pool is more ideologically driven, making it more likely a hard-core liberal or conservative will emerge from the primary, no matter how competitive the district is.” In other words: When independents can vote in the primary, they’re likely to bring more moderate candidates to the general elections. For the time being, though, Pennsylvania is as polarized and gerrymandered as a state can be—and, as you may have noticed if you’ve lived here a while, change isn’t something our state leaders in Harrisburg are very good at. n

The most variety of Indian cuisine on campus

Mon-Sat 10:30am-7:30pm Sun 10:30am-5pm gyrationboutique@gmail.com

ome of the most exciting food-andbeverage pairings I’ve had recently were at Fork a few weeks ago—no surprise there. What was unexpected is the fact that so many of those remarkable wines were local; our area has never enjoyed a reputation as a hot-spot of international vinous intrigue. But savoring the stunning “Our Terroir” menu alongside wines like the Penns Woods Chambourcin and Traminette was nothing short of revelatory. I mean this in the old-testament religious sense—I felt as if a deep universal truth had been revealed to me for the first time, and it was this: Pennsylvania wines are better than ever. And with brave restaurateurs like Ellen Yin, visionary chefs like Eli Kulp and deeply intelligent beverage directors like Fork’s former drinks impresario Paul Rodriguez, the fruit of the local vine is finally getting its welldeserved time to shine. Now more than at any time I remember in the past, brave winemakers and grape-growers are focusing on the varieties that will thrive best in their own little pocket of the commonwealth and producing

wine with both character and charm. Among my favorite producers is Va La Vineyards, located in Avondale, a quick drive from Kennett Square. There, farmer, winemaker, owner and all-around grape genius Anthony Vietri crafts four wines, each made mostly from varieties more typically associated with northern Italy, yet deeply expressive of his own wonderful land in eastern Pennsylvania. Talula’s Garden offers Va La, and the pairing possibilities with these gorgeously stylized wines are limitless. (Note: I consulted on Talula’s Garden’s beverage program.) Aimee Olexy also offers an excellent rosé from Galer Estate Vineyard and Winery in Kennett Square. New Jersey, too, is cranking out some great grape juice. Among the best is Heritage Vineyards in Harrison Township. The point, really, is that the time has come to start taking our local wines more seriously. And lucky for us all, more and more restaurants are doing the hard work for us, parsing the options and offering the best of the bunch. Of which, now more than ever, there are plenty. 

another the crystalline pop of sake-cured trout roe, yet another the bright zip of meyer lemon zest confit. (Brian Freedman)

At Avance, Chef Justin Bogle is essentially running an in situ course on how to bridge the gap between occasionally avantgarde technique and the sort of comfort that a great restaurant meal should provide. This was embodied in the cauliflower chawanmushi, a texturally perfect rendering of the Japanese custard, here studded with thumb-sized Nantucket bay scallops, their seared crowns looking like little umber-toned exclamation points set against the creamy expanse of dashi-rich egg custard. And for all the care of its composition, it remained a dish best scooped up lustily with a spoon: One bite highlighted those sweet scallops, a second the refreshing snap of pickled romanesco,

LAUREL 1617 E. Passyunk Ave. 215.271.8299. restaurantlaurel.com Cuisine: Ambitious, creative American. This stellar BYOB walks the tightrope between daring vision and impeccable technique with steadiness and confidence. Meltingly tender New Jersey scallops arrived hand-torn and tangled up in a transparent-green apple consommé studded with little islets of sea lettuce and translucent shards of celery throughout. Foie gras is bravely and brilliantly fixed up with cocoa in a silky-yet-hearty terrine, a hint of iconoclasm apparent from the first bite. It arrives with a side plate of crisp Metropolitan Bakery brioche slices, and

when that terrine is spread atop, and anointed with a dab of blood orange and then crowned with a mathematically precise brunoise of candied celery root, that earthy, smoky, sweet-souled bite throws all your preconceived fois gras assumptions into question. Toothy seared ocean trout was joined by turnips and tossed with a perfect flurry of braised-then-dehydrated-then-fried black quinoa as crisp as corn nuts and easily as addictive. Berkshire pork lavished in its triumvirate of treatments, and each one, from silky slices of belly to roasted loin to a crepinette of braised shoulder meat secreted inside a cocoon of crisped-up brioche enshrouded in caul fat, had me longing for it days later. (B.F.) PORTO 1301 S. 11th St. 267.928.3956 Cuisine: Portuguese; breakfast and brunch. For the kind of brunch that sticks to the proverbial ribs and offers nourishment for the belly as well as for the soul, Porto is just about perfect. Savor a crunchy fried chicken breast lavished with sweetspicy maple jalapeño yogurt glaze, all of it sandwiched with bacon between the geometry of house-made cheddar waffles. It’s called the “Yo Cuz,” and no hangover is a match for its crave-able charms. The cheesesteak is rendered as the “Ultimate Sin,” a green piri-piristreaked ribeye beneath a crown of St. George cheese and cosseted in a perfect Portuguese roll. The side of roasted potatoes, tangled up with their caramelized onions and peppers, are standouts in the city’s brunch wars. (B.F.)

Octopus is poached with sake, fresno chile, ginger, lemongrass and more until it takes on the texture of a particularly meaty porcini mushroom, then gets hard seared and tossed with red pepper caramel: Magnificent. Homemade andouille showed up like a surprise every other forkful, borne alongside black-eyed peas of heft and delicacy. But it was the single fried chicken leg riding shotgun that stole the show: Skin this crisp and flesh this tender is something to cheer. Oysters were made new with a side cup of pomegranate mignonette, the fruit’s sweetness electrifying the briny bivalves. (B.F.)

The kitchen here is subtly ambitious, crafting as much in-house as they can. The results are deliciously evident in the meat board, a canoe-sized wooden vessel bearing meltingly delicate foie gras torchon, sliced thin and elegantly perfumed from the Grand Marnier in its marinade; country pate all earthy with pork shoulder and chicken and pork livers, all of it wrapped in bacon; duck rillettes cleverly tossed with a parsley and pickled shallot salad; and nutmeg- and lavender-kissed Toulouse sausage, produced right here and seared to order. Pickled cauliflower and cabbage, as well as smart sides paired with each (the black olive and fig tapenade is great), dot the plate, the better to cut through the heartiness of those excellent meats. Octopus, cooked sous vide and then charred to order, was streaked with unexpected notes of cinnamon and chili flakes: Dynamite. (B.F.)

Grasshopper tacos: petite, unabashed, four to the plate, each with its flanks akimbo and its centers piled high with splinteringly crisp, garlic-kissed insects—their bellies glistening, their legs a tangle of wiry stiffness. There was no hiding what this was, no glossing over or attempting to disguise the reality of tortillas stuffed with bugs, guacamole, onions and cilantro. It was a deeply respectful rendering of one of the great, underappreciated Mexican treats, and without a doubt the best version of tacos de chapulines I’ve had in years—probably the best I’ve had since first falling for them in Oaxaca itself. Each bite was a nutty, crunchy, subtly sour delight—an aria to antennae; a love letter to the locust-like. (B.F.)

A giant among men: Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez, who wove magical tales with wondrous words, died Thursday at 87.

Gabriel García Márquez, 1927-2014

By Gary Introne // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

W

hen I was a young man, I often thought I was living in a magical time: legends of sports and stage, presidents and dictators, film stars walking among us. It was only later, much later, that I discovered the mundane that dwelt among all that enchantment. That was, perhaps, 1975—all the strange moments of those days had occurred and were over: Allende in Chile, a smattering of revolution and then a vast counter-coup. Death. The strange circus-troupe of Nixon henchmen, all those Haldeman and Ehrlichman clones, strutting about with all their certainties. The smokescreen that was reality hit hard and kept hitting. It was just about that time when I landed in Macondo. This oddball writer, coming to me from South America, scoring points with talk about crumbling, doddering dictators, wobbly, fantastic kingdoms, lines of strange succession, bizarre animals and fractured skies and horizons. I read all I could. Who was this man? What was this voice? I was completely taken. Gabriel García Márquez died last week at age 87. If you know of whom I speak, you need not go on—I can add nothing more to your already vivid, perfect and fantastic visions and images. He has spoken. And though his voice has quieted, his phantasmagoric passages will live on forever. Marquez long ago had found that portal through which a denser, more real reality entered into and exited our world of the ordinary. It was a cosmic doorway open to anyone who would enter. I know that I eagerly went for it, head over heels and spinning—and came out the better man for it. One of the things, personal and curious to me, that has

always resonated from the work of Márquez (and my time in Macondo) is his writing that “It is not necessary to demonstrate facts; it was enough for the author to have written something for it to be true.” For a writer, for the writer’s lance and the distant horizon, that is a startling statement, a totally invigorating, in-your-face, point of view. Again, not so easy to live up to—it had better be credible; it had better ring true—but basically, it is the truest summation of a writer’s real craft. Márquez received, yes, the Nobel Prize for Literature, in 1982. The world occasionally owns up to its encumbrances. Book by book, he’d proven to grasp the factor which thrusts our world forward, a higher, almost higher-than-literary and mystical level of being, where everything seems allowed, and the most decrepit can sing their own tales and eulogies without decomposing. Flowers really can fall from the sky. It takes a writer of real steely determination and a particular level of talent and emphasis to design, write and stay with such forms. Gabriel García Márquez, gone from us now at this late date in our own conundrum of events—our own strange and fantastic—will, in reality, in a magic realism all its own, be with us forever. As the American Indians would once break an arrow to show peace, I here break a writing pencil, No. 2 lead, in half, in honor of Gabriel García Márquez, of Colombia, as we know it. He has outlived all foibles and conflicts. He’s far off now, in his own magical place. n Gary Introne is an artist, writer and poet who can be found at Labyrinth Books in Princeton, N.J.

N9ne Lives—and Counting Tech N9ne takes the stairs, but still scores on one of hip-hop’s top floors. By Chris Parker // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

A

aron Dontez Yates, also known as Tech N9ne, represents the collision of two emerging trends: Older artists defying rap’s longstanding ageism and the growth of independent hip-hop collectives with their own branding. At age 42, without so much as a hit single among his 20 albums and EPs, the Kansas City rapper has established his label Strange Music as one of top hip-hop empires in the country. During the last two years, Yates has clocked an estimated $13.5 million—just behind Pharrell Williams ($16 million), Swizz Beatz ($15.5 million) and 50 Cent ($14.5 million)—and his bank account’s growing like his stature. Recent albums have included wide-ranging collaborations with System of a Down’s Serj Tankian, metal guitarist John 5 (Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson), Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, T-Pain and CeeLo Green. He’s talking about collaborating with Trent Reznor, dubstep artist Excision and Citizen Cope’s Clarence Greenwood. “I really like that as I get better, the collaborations get more elite,” Yates says. “Next thing you know, I’ll be on a song with Jay Z and Kanye. It’s not that far. Next thing you know I’m going to be on a song by Metallica or Jonathan Davis.” The guy who once wrote “Why You Ain’t Call Me” is certainly singing a different tune. Yates laughs at the suggestion. “I know it’s crazy,” he says, quickly vamping an R&B vocal melody. “‘Won’t you stop calling me?/Why is everybody calling me?/Because I’m the hardest/And I can work with every artist.” Part of his plan was to become one of the most idiosyncratic rappers in the game. He’s done so by adding his own flavor to old school ‘90s lore. His productions are often thick with samples like the Bomb Squad. His breakneck flow borrows from fellow limber-tongued Midwesterners Twista and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Guitars frequently find their way into his music, while Yates’ graphic visions evoke Detroit horror-core emcee Esham. Painting his face—an homage to a dead friend—draws love from Insane Clown Posse’s nation of Juggalos. His whole larger-than-life persona goes back to Yates’ stepfather, who questioned him early on what he had to offer rap. “It always stuck with me that I have to have something different,” he says. “I was always the weird one in the projects. I love music, and I love to dance, but I also love rock n’ roll. I feared clowns as a youngster, and my dead homie Brian Dennis painted my face back in like ‘94, and I became what I feared: the killer clown. Ever since then, I’ve been this different dude. All the way different.” For much of the ‘90s, Yates was an also-ran. He had major label deals with Perspective, Qwest and JCOR Records with a variety of different groups, but the bands imploded or the pacts faltered. That changed when Yates met Travis O’Guin at a fashion show. O’Guin owned a furniture company and real estate, but was looking for a different kind of investment. He spent over $2 million to extract Yates from his contracts to create Strange Music in 2000. Though there were a number of false starts, the partnership of O’Guin’s business acumen and Yates musical sensibilities has proved very effective. “Travis took his incredible business sense and applied it to the music industry, soaked up everything and became this

monster of ideas of ways to get around the system and not get the shaft,” says Yates. “It’s a blessing to have someone like that on your team.” They’ve developed a strong line of merchandising and kept up a steady release schedule. In the last seven years, Yates has released 10 LPs, half of which are part of his collaborations series, entirely comprised of guest tracks cross-promoting other members of Strange Music. The fifth and latest collaboration disc, Strangeulation, is due the first week of May. It features two tracks with Strange Music’s newest recruit, Murs, and another with Lamar protégé Jay Rock. As a longtime lover of golden-age rap, Yates is happy to see the style’s outgrown its youthful obsessions and is starting to mature like its signature artists. “People like me, Jay Z, Nas, Scarface Ice Cube, Too Short, Busta Rhymes, E-40—all these people are vampires. We’re forever,” he remarks. Not that the fight’s over. Indeed, the struggle up to now seems to have only steeled Yates to climb even further. His biggest battle is for his integrity and authenticity, an artist’s perpetual war. “I have to stay me,” he says, “because people will know if I’m doing something for the love of money instead of the love of the art. It just feels so beautiful that I can still do this art—and money comes.”  Fri., April 25. 9pm. $25. With Freddie Gibbs, Jarren Benton + Psych Ward Druggies.

The Bold and the Beautiful This weekend’s Filadelfia Latin American Film Festival has feasts for the senses and spirit on the menu. By Genevieve Valentine // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

S

ure, it’s nice and bright outside. But this weekend marks the third annual Filadelphia Latin American Film Festival—so you should probably spend it in the

dark. This year’s slate is a collection of iconic cinema and firsttime premieres, stories of the immigrant experience and tales rooted firmly in the identity of home. Curating it is a careful process, reveals Beatriz Vieira, FLAFF’s executive director. “Because we’re interested in presenting films in all genres from emerging and established filmmakers that tell important stories in compelling and innovative ways, we try to see as many works and talk to as many people as possible. We are also interested in bringing works from countries less often represented on the screen, so we focus on finding ways to keep informed about filmmaking in those countries.” In addition to the inclusion of films making the annual festival circuit, most of which will be shown in Philadelphia for the first time, this year also features classics revived for the big screen. Vieira sees this as a vital aspect of modern filmmaking. “The classic cinema of Latin America—from Mexico, Brazil and Argentina—are important because they helped to create the visual identity and culture of these countries in the mid-20th century,” she tells PW. “These films are an essential part of the network of exchanges, reinterpretations and appropriations that influences filmmakers today.” Here’s our guide to the movies you can’t miss at the 2014 Filadelphia Latin American Film Festival.

Must-See Selections: Films to play hooky for María Candelaria (Xochimilco) (1946). A jewel of goldenage Mexican cinema, conceived as a gift from director Emilio Fernández to Dolores del Río to woo her into working with him after a disastrous shoot on Flor Silvestre in 1943, María Candelaria is the visually-mesmerizing story of doomed romance and community intolerance. It hasn’t been seen on big screens in Philadelphia for over two decades, and Gabriel Figueroa’s cinematography alone is reason enough to snag a ticket. Fri., 7:30pm, at University of the Arts, 401 S. Broad St. Pelo Malo (Bad Hair) (2013). Venezuelan writer-director Mariana Rondón, who last examined the complicated interior worlds of children in Postcards from Leningrad, has been making festival rounds with Bad Hair, which follows the complex relationship between Junior, increasingly intent on straightening his hair, and his mother, for whom the wish raises concerns about his identity. Rondón will be introducing and discussing the film. Sat., 4:45pm, at International House Philadelphia, 3701 Chestnut St. Anina (2013). This family-friendly animated feature, a world of cut-paper detail with a watercolor wash, stars passionate Anina, whose chief complaint is that her names are palindromes—could anything be worse? Certainly get-

Las Analfabetas (Illiterate)

ting into trouble at school could, as Anina is given a very unusual punishment involving a black envelope that fires up the beautifully-dreadful corners of her imagination. Sun., 10:30am, at University of the Arts.

Hot Tickets: Festival winners and rising stars The House That Jack Built (2013). The Best Picture winner at the Phoenix Film Festival, this family drama took over 20 years to make. The original script was written by the late Joseph Vasquez (Hangin’ with the Homeboys) and is a similarly unflinching story of how easily bonds can be broken. Jack moves his family rent-free into a Bronx apartment complex, but the close quarters soon begin to strain at the seams. Sun., 5pm, at University of the Arts. Las Analfabetas (Illiterate) (2013). The magnetic Paulina García, last seen in Gloria, is a woman who’s lived a lifetime hiding her illiteracy. When an unemployed elementary school teacher offers to teach her, their relationship becomes complicated: teacher-student, a friendship, an exploration of social dynamics and an occasional power struggle between two people who are secretly adrift and looking for hope in the other. Sun., 8pm, at University of the Arts. Matar a un Hombre (To Kill a Man) (2014). This neo-noir study of what drives a man to murder—and the grinding mechanics of the business—won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. Unrelentingly tense and deeply atmospheric—shot largely at night with no additional lighting, casting the film in a dim gold ringed with shadows— it’s a harrowing parable of masculinity and the sacrifices it demands. Sat., 8pm, at The Kimmel Center, 300 S. Broad St. Yo Indocumentada (I, Undocumented) (2011). Winner of the FLAFF’s inaugural LOLA Award for Best Documentary—and

sponsored for inclusion by Philadelphia social-justice organization GALAEI—I, Undocumented explores the invisibility of transgender people in Venezuela, a country that doesn’t officially recognize their existence. The three women on whom it focuses—lawyer Tamara, hairdresser Desirée and student Victoria—provide character studies that highlight the necessity for change as they push legal action that will make their identities legally possible. Sun., 2pm, at University of the Arts.

Local Heroes: Nearby filmmakers, worldwide stories La Camioneta: The Journey of One American School Bus (2012). Director Mark Kendall follows a decommissioned school bus on its fraught journey to Guatemala, where it will be refurbished and repainted as a camioneta for public transit. Though the danger doesn’t end there—armed gangs demand protection money, and the life of a driver or fare-collector is dangerous—the documentary focuses on the interplay between communities and the optimism and renewal each camioneta represents. Sat., 12:30pm, at International House. Aqui y Alla (Crossing Borders) (2013). Artist-activist Michelle Angela Ortiz’s film connects the experiences of teenagers living in Chihuahua and Philadelphia, both experiences affected by immigration—either as those going or as those left behind—and often informed by socioeconomic status and prejudice. Through a “trans-national art project,” teenagers from both cities design a mural that speaks to their experiences while also speaking of those experiences, some for the first time. Sun., 7pm, University of the Arts. Forbidden Lovers Meant to Be (2013). If you’re short on time, they don’t come much shorter: this thing clocks in at five minutes. It’s the work of Taller Puertorriqueño’s 2012 Youth Artist program—including a meta-film about the process—with the filmmakers in attendance for a Q&A. It screens alongside the half-hour Tire Dié (Toss Me a Dime), a 1958 documentary about train-chasing children whose call of “Tire dié!” became the neighborhood’s moniker. Sat., 11am, International House. April 25-27, various times and locations. flaff.org

THE UNCOMFORTABLE WHOLE by Josh Kruger jkruger@philadelphiaweekly.com

There’s Nothing Crazy About Being Crazy America is a nation full of mental health problems. So why do we have such a problem with them?

F

uck you, you fat faggot, she’d say. You’re nothing but a meth addict and you’re going to get arrested soon. Next I’d hear a teenager’s voice: You’re such a weak faggot for crying about your dog dying. Then a man would chime in: They’re coming for you, you know that? You’re so fucking stupid for trusting anyone. AIDS-ridden faggot. “I try my best,” I’d reply—aloud, sometimes, or just in thought. “I’m not a bad person.” I FUCKING HATE WHEN YOU SAY THAT, the voices would always reply in unison, enraged and using the singular pronoun for themselves. Good people aren’t tweakers. And besides, you’re fucking crazy. You’re talking to yourself. As the voices morphed seamlessly into my own mental narration, I had to acknowledge the truth that these, my loudest and most vehemently hateful adversaries, were all myself. And yet though I realized the insanity of this—my daily life for years—I nonetheless endured it. Because confronting not just an addiction-spawned psychosis, but the underlying psychological issues that led to active addiction in the first place, is a terribly humbling process that necessitates opening one’s most honest self to the outside. To stop the voices in my head from constantly screaming at me, I would sometimes sit for hours near I-95 overlooking the Philadelphia riverfront. It was the only place where even my hallucinations had to fall silent, drowned beneath the steady roar of the interstate. At night, the reflections of the city’s lights upon the Delaware River danced jauntily, happily. It was a whimsical, calming sight. Sometimes, out of sheer gratitude for finding a fleeting moment of solitude and peace, I sobbed, pitifully wiping away snot and tears. Now and then, kind pedestrians would occasionally ask if I was OK, and I would reflexively say yes, sometimes making up a story about a romantic breakup. That way, nobody would think a crazy meth addict was sitting near traffic to silence the voices in his head; he was just a normal person having a rough go of things. And that’s the charade everyone who’s suffered mental illness knows well: playing the part of sane person so as to avoid detection by all the sane people.

Whether one’s particular illness is drugrelated or trauma-induced psychosis or PTSD, this process is incredibly alienating and lonely. The first time I hallucinated, I freaked the fuck out in Washington Square Park and couldn’t understand why everyone else wasn’t terrified of the police officers I saw menacingly brandishing and pointing their guns at me. When I finally picked up on the fact that nobody was reacting to dozens of rogue cops—rather, everyone was reacting to a guy in a Puma track suit screaming about his ACLU membership—I realized I should just ignore my sensory input and shut the fuck up. It was then that I started to learn that the worst part about being crazy isn’t losing your mind: It’s knowing that you’re losing it. The National Institutes of Health says that “mental disorders are common in the United States” with “about one in four adults” living with a “diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.” During my “problems”—the hilariously polite way of describing publicly what I personally think of as my “batshittedness”—I was the one out of four. Even now, though, clean and sober and clear-minded, I’m still one of the 40 million Americans who live with serious anxiety at all times. Treatment of anxiety disorders, such as PTSD, costs the U.S. medical infrastructure about $40 billion per year. What’s harder to quantify are the social and literal costs of those untreated. After all, even though a quarter of Americans are in the throes of, well, something right now, a lot of them are keeping it to themselves—and for good reason. While the official American cultural response to mental illness is one of compassion and understanding, the reality of the social landscape is a bit less friendly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that while nearly everyone agrees that “treatment can help persons with mental illness lead normal lives,” we’ve got conflicting ideas about whether or not American society follows through on this promise. The CDC reports that 57 percent of all adults without mental illness think that society is “caring and sympathetic to persons with mental illness”—but only 25 percent of people living


YOUTH APPRECIATION

with mental illness agree. Coming clean about mental illness or seeking treatment inevitably leads to the wellmeaning but mortifying expressions of care colleagues and associates express. And these expressions of care are logically followed by an underlying lack of trust. Attorney Zachary McDermott, writing for Gawker, describes his experience after being released, successfully treated, from a psychiatric ward in New York City: “Real or imagined, I felt a widened berth in the hallway and could only see [my coworkers’] shattered perception of who I was in their eyes. [I was now] the deeply troubled sad sack with ‘issues.’” Despite his colleagues’ expressions of sympathy, McDermott sensed that the true nature of their “understanding” was at best pity—and, at worst, terror. Well— either that, or the stigma attached to mental

conditions make trivial contributions to overall societal violence.” Quite the opposite, in fact: People living with mental illnesses are “11 times more likely to be victims of violent crimes than the general public.” In other words, the overwhelming majority of folks suffering right now aren’t threats to society; they’re mostly threats to themselves—and targets for others. With more open discussion, Bowling says, folks might be better able to overcome whatever impetus is presenting an obstacle to their return to a normal life—whatever that truly is, be it unfair perceptions borne out of insecurity or actual and pervasive lingering stigmas. As McDermott writes, soon upon his reentry into his legal profession, his “projections began to melt.” And something else changed

A while after I sought out both drug treatment and counseling for the underlying pathologies that had pulled me toward addiction in the first place, I realized I was able to appreciate the quiet in my own head again. On an impulse, I ventured to that bench I used to sit on near I-95, thinking I’d find some sort of profound epiphany now that I was sober and sane. That didn’t happen. The fact was, the traffic was just too loud for me to think. Also, the furious bustle going on everywhere was too distracting. Wow, I thought: Some of those people running around down near the highway look goddamned crazy! But considering my experience, and the fact that over 70 million Americans are going through some sort of mental problem— whether it’s a genetic condition like schizophrenia or a condition born from coping with trauma—I didn’t feel like pulling away from those “crazy” folks I saw. Instead, I felt a profound sense of kinship. And I started to realize that, really, there’s nothing crazy about being crazy. n

“When I was experiencing one of the deepest episodes of depression in my life,” says Jake Bowling, “someone I loved dearly looked at me and said, ‘Jake, quit moping around and snap out of it.’ It’s difficult for some people to understand the experience of a mental health condition.” Bowling’s the director of advocacy and policy at the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania. He’s an expert on both the legislation and the stigma surrounding mental illness. “We need to view mental health as an important part of whole health,” he says. “Individuals, if possible, should ‘fight in the open,’ because being able to talk about your own mental health challenge will liberate others to be honest about their experiences and seek the support they need.” Bowling insists that stigma—fueled in part by inaccurate media portrayals of those living with mental illness—need to go. Despite what the cable thriller of the week might suggest, he says, “people with mental health

for him, too: “I was armed with a completely different understanding of my mentally ill clients. I wished I could tell them, ‘You aren’t crazy. Crazy people don’t know they’re crazy.’”

My son is 19, but due to some physical and social disabilities (mostly unseen), his emotional maturity level is closer to 14, though he is quite intelligent. After a lifetime of therapists, specialized education and other interventions, he is now a freshman in college far from home. His dad and I are paying for his tuition, room and books. He was expected to use his summer job earnings for personal expenses. His lack of social skills makes him dependent on alcohol and cigarettes to form his social life, and that plus his immaturity (imagine sending your son to college at age 14) means he went through his money quickly. But he is still drinking and smoking and getting high. When he was home for his last break, I asked him how he affords to do this, and he wouldn’t tell me. You can imagine what went through my head. (Drug dealing?) I asked if it was safe and legal, and he said yes. After some snooping, I learned that he is using a webcam service for chats with men who offer “tips” for sexual viewing. I suppose this is technically safe and legal, but because I’m unfamiliar with the technology involved, I don’t know if he is putting himself at risk emotionally or if screenshots can be captured that can affect his future career, relationships, etc. I’m a longtime follower of your column, podcast and books, and I hope that someday my son and I will be as close as you and your mother were. So tell me, Dan: What would Judy Savage do? Worried Over Repercussions Regarding Incriminating Employment Deal Webcamming—aka camwhoring—is widely regarded as the safest form of sex work. Webcammers aren’t in the same room with their clients (unlike strippers, lap dancers, escorts, foot-fetish-party girls, pro doms, etc.), and cammers have the ability to instantly block creepy, rude or abusive viewers. But there are risks, chief among them how easily viewers can take screengrabs and record videos of a cammer’s sessions. So if your son is planning on a career as a teacher or a cop or a politician, it’s possible that pics and videos could come back to haunt him. But with so many young people out there swapping dirty pics and videos (and so many old people doing it, too), and with so many students camming their way through college (getting naked online is arguably less of a risk to someone’s future prospects than crushing student-loan debt), a time when everyone will have a few incriminating images circulating online is quickly coming. And at that point—which will likely coincide with your son’s entry into the workforce—a few stray dirty pics, videos or GIFs won’t be the career-ending scandal that it is today. Now here’s what Judy Savage, my late mom, would’ve said if she discovered that one of her four kids was camwhoring to pay college expenses: “You’re an adult, and I can’t tell you what to do. You are going to make your own choices, and you’re going to make your own mistakes. But you do have to listen to my concerns. You owe me that.” Hesitating to hear Mom out would result in a single raised eyebrow—a move that had a paralyzing effect on me and my siblings—and then Mom asking if we would rather talk about her four C-section scars instead. We always chose to hear her out. So have a conversation with your son, WORRIED, but first familiarize yourself with the technology

and the phenomenon that is camming. The New York Times wrote a great story on the risks and rewards of camming (“Intimacy on the Web, With a Crowd”), and the first episode of HBO’s Real Sex reboot, Sex//Now, focuses on camming. Checking out both might help you have a more informed, less freaked conversation with your son about how he’s paying for his booze, cigarettes and pot. My fiancée and I have a lovely GGG relationship. Recently we discovered a shared fantasy of unconscious sex—basically, one of us would be unconscious while the other would do whatever they like. Both of us are interested in both roles. Our question is how we go about fulfilling this fantasy. Are there safe ways to put each other to sleep? GGG To ZZZ Try C-SPAN. If C-SPAN doesn’t work, try golf—playing it, watching it reading about it. If golf doesn’t work, try Ambien. I’m a girl in my mid-20s living in a large city. After listening to some of your older podcasts, I decided to hop on Craigslist to see if there were any boys that might like to buy my used undies. I posted a few ads and got tons of responses. Money has been tight, so why not? I met up with a guy and exchanged a pair for $50. Score! I went home and replied to a few more and met another guy the next morning for another $50. Both guys seemed nice, and I felt exhilarated after I walked away. But once I got home, I was extremely paranoid about the risk of being followed. My boyfriend is OK with me doing this; he just wants me to be safe about it. I think I was pretty safe. I set up a separate email account, and I met them in public in the daytime. My boyfriend offered to go with me to meet these guys and hang back where he wouldn’t be seen. I’m fine with this, but we work different schedules, so it’s not realistic. I looked into the sites that allow you to sell the goods online and mail them, but those don’t really work for me. You have to pay to use all of those sites. I don’t really have a lot of time to dedicate to selling my panties. I just want to do it every once in a while for some spare cash. So is there anything else I could do to feel a little safer? Will this paranoid feeling go away after a few interactions? Or is my brain trying to tell me that I’m not cut out for this kind of thing? And exactly how dangerous is this? Pensive And New to Intense Exciting Salaciousness There are thousands of women out there selling their used panties online, and you never read about one being stalked or murdered by a collector, PANTIES, but the news is full of stories of women being murdered by their boyfriends and husbands. I don’t mean to downplay the risks—or play fast and loose with the math (there are tens of millions of women with boyfriends and husbands)—and most women who sell their panties online aren’t meeting their customers face-to-face. But if you don’t want to go the website route, here’s how you can sell your panties in person more safely: Get the Uber app on your phone and order a car after you make a sale. Having a driver drop you a mile away will cost you $5 or $10, PANTIES, but the peace of mind will be worth the price. 
