Mad Santa: The 2011 horror/comedy Caesar and Otto’s Deadly Xmas (above) is among the entries in this year’s Terror Film Festival.

WHAT’S HAPPENING — BEFORE IT HAPPENS ... S C R EE N

The Terror Film Festival

Halloween season is more than just pumpkin-spice stuff : For three days in mid-October, horror fans can screen dozens of original films from across the globe as the Terror Film Festival touches down at the Ethical Society in Rittenhouse Square. Along with six short film programs containing more than 25 fright-filled entries, three full-length features are set for screening at the fest—among them, Mortal Remains, an examination of the mysterious death of slasher movie pioneer Karl Atticus; 2012’s horror comedy Caesar and Otto’s Deadly Xmas; and this year’s creepy The Visitant. Started in 2006, the Terror Film Festival touts itself as a “passionate, professional and honorable film festival that offers incredible, ground breaking, precedent setting benefits and concepts” for filmmakers and their projects alike. True to this form, the festival plans to give props to all those who’ve participated in turning this indie dream into reality: Attending actors from the participating films, for instance, get free admission with their headshots. And, the event’s annual Claw Awards commemorates the cream of the crop, with 20 categories for excellence in horror filmmaking and screenwriting. Boasting heavyweight sponsors like Paramount, Warner Bros., and Fangoria, the event is a fresh spotlight on an old genre that still finds new excitement every year. / KENNEDY ALLEN Thurs., Oct. 17-Sat., Oct. 19.

He’s one of the most influential comedians and actors in American history—and, hey, he went to Temple! He’s come back on several occasions over the years, for good times and bad, but mark your calendars, because The Cos just can’t stay away from Philly (and we’re better for it). After telling more than 9,000 graduating Temple seniors in May, “For God’s sake, get a job,” this week he’s hitting the school’s Performing Arts Center. The standup show is a part of the 35th-anniversary fundraiser for the Bushfire Theatre of Performing Arts. Bushfire, founded by Al Simpkins, is the famed troupe of African-American playwrights and local actors based in the century old Locust Theater at 52nd and Locust streets in West Philly. As Cosby said to the Philadelphia Tribune last week: “I can’t tell you how important this theater is to the community, to people who, right there in Philadelphia, can take the family to see something that has the intelligence and the education, the integrity—there is no foolishness—in [Bushfire Theatre] plays.” / RANDY LOBASSO 7:30pm. $30-$50.

Atlantic City Zombie Walk M USI C

Piffaro Hearkening back a few hundred years and armed with rustic-looking wind instruments, the folks who make up acclaimed renaissance band Piffaro give new meaning to the phrase “band geeks.” Since beginning in 1980, the septet—which derives its name from the Italian word for pipe—is led by artistic directors Joan Kimball and Bob Wiemken. And, the group channels the baroque spirit of the 14th-17th century cultural movement with an acute frame of historical reference and a comprehensive musical knowhow. Though primarily based in Philadelphia, where they offer a subscription concert series on an annual basis, Piffaro now makes a name for itself on a global scale, having toured throughout Europe, Canada and South America in support of its recorded arrangements. A total of 16 albums have been released under their banner since 1992, with the latest, 2012’s Los Ministriles in the New World, paying homage to renowned Spanish composers of the 16th and 17th centuries. Its members may each be accomplished musical educators in their own right, but don’t think for a second that this band is afraid of bringing on outside help. For added authenticity, they’ve augmented their lineup with a handful of singers, along with a few more obscure instruments such as dulcians, sackbuts and shawms. Sure, those names might sound funny at first, but hey, you’re learning. And then you’ll be grooving. / JAKE ABBATE

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale Philadelphia- According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is 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

pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need To Know To Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit www.phillysbesthomes.com/ inspection.asp or to hear a brief recorded message about home to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free (800) 560-2075 and enter 3003. • You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Saturday, October 19 MUSIC

Fiona Apple + Blake Mills Let’s get down to it: Fiona’s a bit temperamental. She’s emotional, she’s intense and, well, she’s a little wild. So do not fuck with her. Last week in Portland, a heckler shouted “Fiona! Get healthy! We want to see you in ten years!” Apple was ripshit: She had the house lights turned on and the heckler ushered out. And that had come after about 90 minutes of stunning performance oscillating between her and her Idler Wheel ... tour-supporting guitarist and comrade Blake Mills. She tried to eke out one more song, but the emotions had already overcome her—she pushed through “Waltz (Better Than Fine),” sobbing, and apologized before heading offstage. While Mills isn’t a household name, in the music biz, he’s a staple: a session and touring guitarist who’s played with Jenny Lewis, Dawes, Band of Horses and Julian Casablancas. And his 2010 solo debut, Break Mirrors, is excellent wanderer everyman rock. For all the locals who know and love Ms. Apple—and who adored every minute of her sold-out Tower moment last year and expect nothing less than gut-wrenching beauty from the piano-powered songstress (Seen the video for “Hot Knife” yet?)—this double bill offers a chance to see more fully into the creative kernel she and Mills nurtured for more than a year. / BILL CHENEVERT 8pm. $49.50-$65.00.

Shemi Zarhin Israeli writer Shemi Zarhin has made several art films over the past two decades; now, he’s also decided to take on the book world. Zarhin’s debut novel Some Day—written in Hebrew, as are his movies—was recently translated into English and published by the New York-based New Vessel Press. The story revolves around a family over several decades, stuck in a cycle until “mysterious curses cause people’s hair to fall out, their necks to swell and the elimination of rational thought amid capitulation to unhealthy urges,” according to its official description. Can we get three cheers for magic realism, please? Sponsored in part by the Israeli Film Festival of Philadelphia, the author’s appearance takes place at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies. He’ll read from Some Day and speak with the audience; a wine and cheese reception follows the program. / R.L.

Cults Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion hit that magic mix of hype, momentum, harmony and sheer charm with “Go Outside,” the track that propelled the success of their self-titled debut three summers ago. Now, the NYU duo have become way more than just a girl who sings and a guy who plays guitars and drums: Onstage, they’re five deep, and the energy is extremely fresh. Percussion forms the sturdy backbone for their brand new sophomore, Static; they love to play with rhythms. Even if they do tend to lean toward the nostalgic sound of ‘60s-era California sun, they also expertly employ elements of tropicalia, jazz, funk and even a little bit of hip-hop. Their Johnny Brenda’s performance a couple years ago packed in a growing following, who’ll no doubt be bolstered by this excellent new LP. As far as buzz bands go, they’re awfully likable, as you’d hope a couple of college friends who’ve managed to weave their hobby into a rising rock act would be. Their sense of fun’s palpable on record; they just love to jam and dance and rock out and have a good time. You will, too. / B.C. 8:30pm. $16. With Mood Rings + Sacco.

PHILLY’S FAVORITES Every year, PW rounds up a ton of stuff we love most around the city. This year, we asked our writers to take us on a tourist walk through their own neighborhoods. (And we’re also inviting you, reader, to win tickets to next month’s epic Taste of Philly—flip the page to learn how!)

The Wild West

O

ne of my favorite Philadelpia monuments is the statue of Charles Dickens in Clark Park. It’s a surprisingly affecting work, with a very human Dickens looking down at a representation of Little Nell, a beloved character from his book The Old Curiosity Shop. As odd as it that a British author is monumental in a city he only visited twice, the real story of the piece is even odder. Francis Edwin Elwell was commissioned by Washington Post founder Stilson Hutchins, who planned to place it in London. Stilson’s funding fell through, but Elwell finished it anyway. Elwell submitted the finished sculpture to several sculpture competitions, won all sorts of medals and acclaim—and could find no one to buy the statue. Dickens, you see, said in his will that he wanted no statues or monuments to his life. So while many a Dickens fanatic loved the statue, they didn’t have the heart to go against the dead man’s wishes. Elwell stuck it in a warehouse here in Philly, where it remained for years. Nearly a decade after it was finished, the Fairmount Park Art Association—now the Association for Public Art—bought the statue and put it up in Clark Park, where it remains to this day, despite requests to put it in a more prominent place. The history of the piece is important, because this statue is surprisingly hard to find. Most people don’t know it’s there. I lived a few blocks from Clark Park for months before I saw the statue, even having walked past it countless times. When it I “discovered” it, I was amazed that I’d missed it all this time. It’s not a small statue, and the arrangement of Clark Park favors it. One might say that there would have to be some sort of supernatural influence to keep people from seeing it. Am I saying the angry ghost of Charles Dickens is keeping >>>

PHILLY’S FAVORITES >>> people from seeing the statue, just as the

memory of his will kept folks from buying it? Of course not. But I’m not not saying it ... If a cranky Charles Dickens truly doesn’t want people to hang around University City, he may be the only one. The neighborhood abounds with welcoming attitudes. Take, for example, Studio 34, the yoga studio/ community space tucked in next to a pizza parlor. I first went up their steep steps years ago, as two friends chose it as the spot for their wedding reception. The funky vibe of the place, all hardwood floors and mismatched couches, was a wonderful setting for two people celebrating their life together. I started taking yoga a couple of months ago, and was pleased to see that the warm feeling is still there, even without a wedding reception. My affection for the place has grown Curio since being in the classes Thea tre of Sonia Williams, who teaches beginners yoga and “Honey Sweet Flow.” Williams teaches the first class of beginners yoga I’ve taken that feels like a yoga class for beginners, as opposed to a class with easy yoga poses. Williams takes care and time with each student, making sure we’re getting the most out of each pose and movement. A former dancer, Williams has the charisma of a trained stage performer, but uses it to create a connection with her students. It can almost be characterized as an anti-performance: Though she’s at the front of the class, the focus is always on each of us. While Philadelphia will always be the land of the cheesesteak, I’m always amused

to see the Fu-Wah deli’s amazing tofu banhmi hoagies found by a newbie. They’re often held up as a surprise—the now-defunct Gourmet magazine referred to Fu-Wah as a destination in and of itself, an oasis of deliciousness in the desert that is Food Sold Outside Of New York. But us locals have been downing them for years. Even I, a carnivore to the core, have found myself craving that wondrous warm, marinated tofu. Part of the joy of the sandwich, which Gourmet failed to mention, is chewing the fat with Benny Lai after you order. Lai’s family owns the Fu-Wah, as well as Vietnam and Vietnam Café restaurants, and he’s almost always behind the counter, taking orders and running the cash register. Lai has a friendly easiness you would sooner expect from a character on television rather than in real life. The worlds of fiction and reality seem to overlap all over the neighborhood. I am not a beer drinker, and when I reveal this to friends who are, they pummel me with suggestions of vile, sour brews they’re sure I will love. One friend, a local who’s lived here longer than I have, just gave me a beatific smile. “You should go to the Bottle Shop,” he said, and then told me where it was. “There’s nothing there,” I said. “That’s a wall.” “It’s there if you look for it,” was all he said. And sure enough, there it was. I entered the Bottle Shop as wary as anyone else walking though a door where there’s usually a wall, only to be met with a with a very clean

room lined with coolers. Behind each glass pane, there was a wonder of bottles, beers of various styles, nationalities and special ingredients. I was so in awe of the bounty that I didn’t notice the proprietor until he asked if he could help with anything. Let me be blunt: This man was a wizard, beard and all. He looked like Gandalf must have when he backpacked around MiddleEarth before starting graduate school: long beard, long hair, stomach that implied frequent enjoyment of the products he sold, the works. This wizard listened attentively to my drink fancies and desires, and then selected a brewsky that he said I would call my favorite. And he was correct. I’ve been back to the Bottle Shop several times, but the wizard has not been there. I doubt I will see him again. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Curio Theatre. It seems like every neighborhood in the city has their own community theater troupe, but Curio stands above the rest for their willingness to experiment. They’ve received national attention for their current production of Romeo & Juliet, done with women cast in the title roles, but before that, they were staging an adaption of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five on a constantly mutating stage. Before that, they did a powerful spoken-word take on The Iliad. Before that, they decided that the perfect thing for their holiday season was Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist. And so on, and so on, since 2005. With each show, Curio’s artistic director Paul Kuhn transforms the interior of the 114-year-old chapel that houses the company into whatever fantasia the scripts require. The unpredictability of Curio Theatre means it fits right into a neighborhood where wizards will sell you beer, and the only one who doesn’t want you around is a dead author’s ghost. / JARED AXELROD

My neighbors who’ve lived here forever call it Kensington; their kids call it Fishtown; the civic association calls it Olde Richmond; and if you call it Port Fishington, everyone calls you an asshole. The civic association defines its boundaries as Conrail Rail Lines to the north, Delaware River to the east, Trenton Avenue to the west and Delaware River by the I-95 interchange to the south. But most of the people I run into don’t consider those parameters especially meaningful. Rather, for most, if you can walk there, you can call it home. And due to the offthe-griddiness that begins where East Girard meets Frankford, the whole area is mighty walkable; nothing north of Girard and south of Lehigh is too far away from anything else. Best bars: This neighborhood has changed over the last decade, and with it, the restaurant scene and clientele. Both Atlantis (Frankford and Hagert) and Memphis Taproom (2331 E. Cumberland) are old staples of the young; but in recent years, we’ve seen the addition of places like Loco Pez (2401 E. Norris), Cedar Point (2370 E. Norris) and whatever they’re doing down near Girard. Fishtown Tavern (1301 Frankford) was revamped; there’s Frankford Hall (1210 Frankford); El Bar (1356 N. Front) Bottle Bar East (1308 Frankford) and Lloyd (529 E. Girard), among others. But if hanging with hipsters isn’t your thing, I recommend cheap beers with locals at Bob’s Happy Hour Tavern (2310 Frankford; bonus: karaoke!), Luke’s Bar (2434 Cedar), the Triple Shot Tavern (2401 E. Letterly) and Erica’s Sports Bar (2049 Hagert). Best coffee: The Rocket Cat (2001 Frankford) is an old standard, but both ReAnimator Coffee (1523 E. Susquehanna) and the Soup Kitchen Café (2146 E. Susquehanna) have opened recently, and offer tasty brews. ReAnimator has a wide open ambiance and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, even if they do take coffee just a little too seriously for my tastes. (Each cup is brewed by hand!) Which isn’t to say the hardcore stuff— like a rotating specialty $8 cup the work crew found on a pilgrimage overseas—isn’t awesome. It’s just not something I’d drink a lot of, for financial/“I work in journalism” reasons. Soup Kitchen is a hybrid café/sit-down restaurant/coffee shop that sells beer by the bottle and does a Tunisian dish called the Shakshuka that’s just fantastic—a spicy, red mixture of peppers, tomatoes and onion, served with an egg and toasted bread. It’s great for a sit-down breakfast or an all day study/work bender with a cup of Red Eye that serves each one of its purposes. >>>

PHILLY’S FAVORITES >>> For dogs: Lots of neighborhoods have dog parks. Mine has three. The first, Triangle Park (898 Aramingo), is located next to I-95 where Girard’s commercial corridor ends. Palmer Doggie Depot (Frankford and E. Palmer) is between Palmer Park and Kensington High School. The third, Pop’s Playground (Hazzard and Collins), requires a membership and membership key to get in. But if you really want to have fun, bring your dog to the macadam at Horatio B. Hackett Elementary during off-hours. It’s open all the time and has enough space to play fetch. Other creatures: Humans and animals have managed to live quite comfortably with each other in this neighborhood. There are numerous, semi-friendly cats on my block (one universally known as “Patrick,” one I’ve decided to call “Murder Cat” for reasons that’d be obvious if you saw it (one of them: It looks like it’s murdered) and one three-legged feline that’s survived many long winters and hot summers under cars, limping its way through the world. There are at least two wild dogs: a sharpe-mix and a rotweiller-mix, both of which are super-friendly, playful and generally liked by neighborhood human beings. For watching sports: The Hackett school, again. On any given weekend, weather permitting, families will make a baseball diamond their own on the macadam and organize a kid’s baseball game with beer and meat. For watching professional sports: My favorite spots are Memphis Taproom’s outdoor area and Interstate Draft House, the latter which is an understated spot to watch a game at the bar, and awesome mostly for that reason. Yoga: Most people know about Amrita Yoga (1204 Frankford), but they don’t really know about Pacific Yoga (2518 Cedar). Pizza: Yes, Pizza Brain (2313 Frankford) is a fantastic, now-internationally-known spot, and the pizza’s great, but it’s nowhere near the only game in town. I consider Key Food Pizza (2329 E. York) highly underrated. They serve gigantic boardwalk-style slices with extra cheese. Another spot, Primo Pizza, has decent slices for under $2; Franco’s (2573 Tulip) has decent slices and other Italian dishes, and a new Italian place I’ve been meaning to try just opened across the street from the Walking Fish Theater. Stage: Have I mentioned that the Walking Fish Theater (2509 Frankford) is in this neighborhood? Art: A short walk to East Kensington, and you can check specialty art shows at Little Berlin (2430 Coral), a hybrid gallery/work space at a former warehouse with a really cool outdoor area. They’re open for specialty exhibits, First Friday and appointments. Galleries up and down Frankford step up the game each First Friday, and are displayed prominently by the New Kensington CDC posters and bus stop ads around town. My favorites include High Wire Gallery (2040 Frankford), 2033 Frankford and the Sculpture Gym (1834 Frankford), which just opened an outdoor space, lot-turned awesomeness. Literary: And hey, what do you know about Head and the Hand Press (2011 Frankford)? That it’s a 2012-established community-supported press and workshopping space for writers? Or that they’re seeking submissions for all sorts of cool publishing projects, right now? Or that they sell a number of books and goods they they’ve published through their online store? Or that you can rent their coworking space at any point between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. to get some much-needed quiet time with your words? No? Well, now you do. Clothing: Circle Thrift (2233 Frankford) is one of those thrift stores that has always been awesome, and will always be awesome. There’s always something there you probably need, and always a reason to buy it—that reason being, This shirt is actually 50 cents? Well, OK, I guess I could use a shirt. / RANDY LOBASSO

South Philly: Eat, Drink & Be Merry

T

here’s a lot of neighborhood pride in Philly, but it seems pretty clear that South Philly might just have the most. So it’s with a great deal of trepidation that I declare my favorites of South Philadelphia for that reason— and because South Philly’s huge. We could get down to the nitty gritty and cite square mileage and per capita delis, but let’s just say that South Philly, technically, is river to river and South Street to the Navy Yard. While there are certainly some great opportunities to shop for clothes, get your hair done and pick up some sick furniture or records, South Philly’s all about food and drink. We just do it really well. You’re not gonna find a ton of Whole Foodsy establishments and nary a Trader Joe’s is in sight, but the argument could be made that South Philly’s where you go for Philly’s finest cheesesteaks and pretzels. We love beer and we like to drink lots of it. And then coffee in the morning. It’s with these foci that we’ll do favorites, keepin’ it to food, booze and coffee. We may not have the finest restaurants and coveted fancy dining experiences in the city, but we’ve got some good ones. Coupla weeks ago, I got my mind blown at Monsu, a comfy and no-frills BYO in the Italian Market (see their friends: Paesano and Modo Mio). Stateside, despite chef changes, remains one of the best restaurants in the city, nailing cocktails, drafts, oysters and small plates for perfect dates and hangs. Special occasions are to be celebrated at Little Fish and Bibou, too, with reservations necessary and a healthy fistful of cash, but most importantly an empty stomach and a hunger for extraordinary culinary might. But we also have a handful of outstanding go-tos, places South Philadelphians start to take for granted because they go twice a month: Cantina Los Cabolitos, Slice, New Wave Cafe, Royal Tav-

ern, and Lucky 13, for instance. And let’s not sell short the fact that South Philly boasts three of the most bangin’ diner experiences in Pennsylvania: the serviceable Broad Street Diner, the legendary Melrose, and the Queen of the Court, the Oregon Diner. Then there are two duos shaking up how South Philadelphians drink, even when there’s a bar on nearly every other block corner. And that’s the American Sardine Bar and South Philly Tap Room alliance and The Dolphin and Boot & Saddle team. Sardine Bar’s a newb ‘round these parts but denizens of Point Breeze have been loving it since its doors opened: sick taps, a long list of cans, delicious sandwiches, great hours, a backyard and a warmly receptive crew of servers and bartenders—and it’s a destination for folks all over the city. Their sister boasts a great menu (‘til late, too) and fuels the genius of Brew, a beer shop across the street lodged into the back of the Mifflin Ultimo. Coffee and beer have never coexisted so harmoniously. Ever since the Dolphin reopened with the help of the R5/Drinkers team, South Philly partiers have been stopping in for late night beers and an understuffed dancefloor. But the list of holes-in-the-wall with loving, dedicated regulars is endless: Ray’s, 12 Steps Down, the P.O.P.E., and The Dive would top that list, though. We are also the home to some of the best coffee shops and cafes in the whole of Philly. Ultimo pours Counter Culture coffee and espresso and they’re the best two coffee joints in town—they know what they’re doing and they’re chill about it. Plus there are righteous contenders in Shot Tower and Grindcore House. And Passyunk wouldn’t be what it is without B2’s bagel sandwiches and Black & Brew’s charms. / BILL CHENEVERT

Doing Center City: Beyond the Obvious

C

ontrary to popular outer neighborhood sentiment, Center City is more than just a place where tourists congregate and Craigslist missed connections happen. Folks do live here, too. And, in this figurative, and geographic, center of the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia’s 1.5 million residents have to sit next to one another in places like Café Twelve. The coffee clutch located in the heart of Philly’s Gayborhood at 12th and Locust streets warms the senses with its comfortable couches, movable furniture and reasonable prices; and, because of its centrality to all points Center City, the place is seemingly the nexus of all known civilization (think Star Wars’ cantina but with $1.08 endless refills instead of light sabers). The owners, Ashish Dahal and Ashna D. Gyawali from Nepal, only use locally roasted fair trade coffee beans, also from Nepal, so you can feel less guilty about sitting there acting like you’re working on that novel on your laptop. Part of the charm of Center City, though, is one of its best kept secrets, too: Philadelphia’s prettiest, and most interesting, side streets present themselves here. Fitler Square and the streets surrounding this hidden gem of a park make for perfect post-date walks or contemplative bicycle rides, and between 12th and 13th alone, Camac Street has a bathhouse and a gym and a few bars and pretty houses and, well, you get the idea. Walking off Camac and eastward on Locust Street, you’ll need to grab some free Wi-Fi and incredible (and vegan optional) culinary delights at Cake and the Beanstalk between 12th and 11th streets. Need a screw? A hammer?

Paint? Eye candy? Swing by 10th Street Hardware on 10th Street between Locust and Pine; the knowledgeable, friendly, and (this is admittedly irrelevant) very attractive staff at this independently and locally owned and operated gem can help you finish just about anything in your house. Most Philadephians pride themselves on length of time its been since they’ve actually done “the Liberty Bell thing,” but Center City’s national treasures of Independence Hall Park and the National Constitution Center always deserve, at least every couple of months, an afternoon. And the Central Branch of the Free Library at 19th and Vine has free Wi-Fi, awesome echo-creating chambers and hallways (the librarians ask that you please do not learn this in practice), and one of the best collections of public library resources in the entire nation. When’s the last time you stopped by? I thought so. Philly can’t always be about warmth, fairness and friendliness; after all, we did throw snowballs at Santa Claus. So you can find the answer to the question, “Where can I get a funny (or profane) T-shirt that appeals to both Philly natives and my fashion sense” at Cheesesteak Tees at Fifth and South streets. With T-shirts available in-store and online making allusions to the 1983 Sixers Championship team, the Flyers as the Broad Street Bullies, and Bill Cosby, owner Ori Cohen has seemingly atoned for his mortal sin of being born in New York City (he’s now a native-by-choice.) Yep, only in Center City can you find a T-shirt that says Philafuckingdelphia. And we are better for it. / JOSH KRUGER

Dogfish Head Midas Touch. It would be a fair to ask if Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch actually qualifies as beer. The ingredient certainly list doesn’t look like beer. In addition to barley, it’s made with honey, grapes and saffron. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, either, having far more in common with a sparkling chardonnay or dry mead than it does with a glass of ale. Boasting a dry finish, a honey-kissed sweetness and an herbal aroma touched lightly with hops, this highly effervescent brew is the kind of drink you sip over a fine meal. You won’t be downing multiple pints of this—at 9 percent ABV you’d be on the floor sooner rather than later—but you will find yourself astonished at how diverse beer can be. Try it at Barcade or Kennett.

Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA. With their anniversary selections over the last few years, the folks at Stone have been showing us why they have a reputation for giving tradition the finger. These beers have been every bit as assertive, aggressive, and offbeat as the roster than made them famous in the first place. This year, Götterdämmerung IPA helps us celebrate their 17th anniversary with a huge array of German hops, some of them still experimental and not yet used in mainstream beers, along with the unusual (for Stone) choice to brew solely with pilsner malts. The mess o’ hops is as assertive as an American IPA but with a much different character: big notes of honey, melon, floral herbs, honeydew, lemon and spicy grasses. Try this monster ale at Alla Spina, Varga Bar, Bar 31 and Fountain Porter.

Southern Tier Harvest Ale. The taps at our favorite ale houses have begun to fill with the traditional beers of autumn: Marzens, brown ales, harvest ales and the ubiquitous pumpkin beers. Based on its name, Southern Tier’s take on autumn brewing sounds like it fits with tradition; its deep straw color, almost bordering on orange, seems to fit the bill, too. But rather than being malt-forward and German influenced, this is a decidedly bright, bitter twist on the traditional English style called ESB, or Extra Special Bitter. Grassy, herbal hops and a big earthy bitterness make themselves known loud and clear, giving the toffee and light straw taste imparted by the malts a backing role. Taste this slice of the American Revolution at Barcade, Growlers, The Pour House Westmont and other locations.

Ommegang Gnomegang. It’s kind of a silly name, isn’t it? This Belgian strong ale is a collaboration with Brasserie d’Achouffe, better known as La Chouffe, better known as That Belgian Brewery With The Cute Little Gnomes On Their Labels. It’s one of those tricky beers that drinks far easier than it should. The classic smell of Belgian yeast dominates the aroma, with touches of hay and dank European flower gardens rounding things out. The taste is a wild field of wet hay, crisp grass and sweet toast, with just the faintest hint of fruit beneath it all. There’s a minor touch of spice as well, but it’s the highly active carbonation that gives this golden ale zest. It’s on draft at London Grill, The Industry and Side Bar.

5

Ramstein Oktoberfest. You don’t expect top-shelf representations of traditional German beers to come out of New Jersey, but that’s just where this excellent Oktoberfest comes from. Brewed by High Point Brewing Co. in Butler, NJ, this amber ale pours with a frothy white head and lacing that will coat your glass like a layer of paint. The aroma is just what you expect from a classic Oktoberfest: caramel, bready grains and softly spicy hops. It drinks easy, with tastes of sweet bread, nuts and candy corn balanced by herbal hops and the faintest hint of spice. See how good traditional beer can be at McGillin’s and Bar 31. / ERIC SAN JUAN Follow PW’s Year of Beer online weekdays at: philadelphiaweekly.com/drinks

DRINK CITY Drinking Games

Follow the Bouncing Brooklyn One of the craft beer world’s favorites is on tour—and this week they’re leading us all around the city with parties aplenty.

B

rooklyn Brewery invades Philly in November—and does it right. The 29-year-old microbrewer is heading to bars, music venues and other sweet spots all over the city as part of the Brooklyn Brewery Mash, a tour of 11 cities over ten months. Their stint in Philly will find the company hosting unique oft-autumn-themed events just in time for their fall season of specialty beers.

1

Tuesday, Nov. 5: Time. Brooklyn kicked it all off last night, raiding Time Restaurant and Whiskey Bar on Sansom Street for a “Tap Attack” pouring eight drafts, including both seasonal and core brews. Miss it? Fear not, because next up is...

2

Wednesday, Nov. 6: Magic Gardens. Brooklyn Brewery has its own house chef—for real. And as cool as that sounds, imagine a brewery chef collaborating with a street foodie and coffee nerd. That’s what’s happening at the Philly Magic Gardens on South Street, as Brooklyn chef Andrew Gerson, Rival Brothers Coffee chef Johnny Mac and Street Food Philly chef Michael Sultan get together for a street food-inspired event alongside installations from art projects by Nuit Blanche New York. Proceeds of this event benefit Slow Food Philadelphia.

3

Thursday, Nov. 7: Khyber Pass Pub. Then, Brooklyn gets Philly activist and author Judy Wicks to hang out and share stories from her new memoir, Good

Morning, Beautiful Business: The Unexpected Journey of an Activist Entrepreneur and Local Economy Pioneer for a reading and Q&A. That’ll benefit Slow Food Philadelphia, too.

4

Friday, Nov. 8: Underground Arts. A Brooklyn-inspired Dance-off competition? Praise Jeebus, yes. Contestants (you, your friends) will head to Underground Arts to dance your asses off to ’60s soul and compete for both a cash prize of $100 and the chance to head up to New York and compete all over again with contestants from other cities. Be a winner. Do Philly proud.

5

Saturday, Nov 9: TBD. Chaos Cooking is this thing where people get together, bring various ingredients, and cook something wild—sort of like Top Chef, with your friends instead of professionals, and multiple secret ingredients instead of one. It’s become a real thing as of late, being featured on (of course) NPR and in the New York Times. Brooklyn holds a Chaos Cooking event in Philly on Saturday, at a yet-to-bedetermined venue. Start researching your weird grub now. / R.L.

DRINK CITY Raise Your Glass

Halloween Cocktails Eight local haunts where October is a eerily good time for creative mixology.

W

ith Halloween nearly upon us, the time has come to drink thematically. This is a good thing: For too many of us, the tendency is to stick with the same few cocktails all the time, exploring the many variations on the same few themes. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course—doing so leads to a deeper, more incisive appreciation of the drinks we love most. But it also, as a downside, results not only in far less drinking diversity, but also to occasionally missing out on new drinks that we just don’t give a chance to. With that in mind, then, this is the perfect time to re-visit the classics of the canon and the flights of spiritous fancy that fit in particularly well as the day of the dead approaches. And what better drink is there to ring in Halloween with than a bloody mary? This is a town with no shortage of standout ones, but the White Dog Cafe’s Sangre de Puerco, or blood of the pig, seems most appropriate. It leverages bacon-infused vodka and a bacon-stuffed olive to give even further depth to their in-house bloody mary mix. If you’re feeling faux-literary, then honor this figuratively dark and stormy night with its eponymous cocktail. Southwark serves up a notable one, as well as an aptly-named Diablo cocktail. It’s tequila, creme de cassis, ginger ale and lime, and should

succeed in getting you into the “spirit” of things. Tequila’s riffs on the same theme with their Margarita Diablo... plus, there’s the whole excellent skeleton motif there to get you in the mood. Emmanuelle is whipping up a pisco-based drink called the Casket Girl. Time, on Sansom Street, crafts the Death in the Afternoon, which brings together absinthe and sparkling wine. They also, appropriately enough, offer a drink called The Presbyterian, with Jim Beam rye, bitters, and ginger ale— because a little religion on the day of the dead probably isn’t a terrible idea. You also could head on out to Citron and Rose for the Redemption cocktail, with slivovitz, pepper syrup, amaretto, and OJ. And Zahav mixes up a great drink called the Voodoo Dreams (Fernet-Branca, lime, ginger root), which is also custom-fit for this holiday. Or you could just head to Eulogy and drink... well, whatever you feel like. Because it’s called Eulogy, and it’s Halloween. It doesn’t get more perfect than that. Of course, you could really sink your teeth into the holiday and order the Dieu du Ciel Peche Mortelle (loose translation: mortal sin) or the Rogue Dead Guy. And then you can go home and dream of butterflies and rainbows. / BRIAN FREEDMAN

For Love of Pork If Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson were an urban sophisticate, his ode to a favorite food might sound a lot like Brian Freedman’s. By Brian Freedman // bfreedman@philadelphiaweekly.com

I

love beef, enjoy lamb and respect the multitudinous guises in which chicken is successfully served. But when the zombie apocalypse is finally on its way, when I have but hours left on this watery orb we all call home and have to plan my last meal, I’ll choose the many and gloriously varied fruits of the pig over them all when it comes to planning my final plates. Fortunately for me—and for us all!—Philadelphia is a pig lover’s paradise, and the options for pork-possessed happiness are damn near infinite here. So, with apologies to Big Billy S, I ask the question: Pork, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love you in your stacks of dried or cured or smoked magnificence at Di Bruno Bros., your Abruzzese and Sicilian incarnations, your salami Toscani. I love your speck-y glory, your prosciutto whether it’s San Daniele or Parma, your Spanish hams from affordable serrano to mortgage-payment-worthy bellota. I love you when you’re bacon, and the fact that, in this town, none of us have to slum it in the fridge section of our local supermarket and suffer through tepid and flavorless-savethe-salt strips of mass-produced bacon simulacra. Because here, in this town, we can get as hyper-specific as we want with our bacon choices: thick-cut and double-smoked strips from Green Meadow or more delicate, thinner-cut ones from Birchrun Hills. PorcSalt’s red wine or honey cured bacons also set hearts all over town aflutter (and I’m talking about culi-

nary romance here, not EKG readings). I love that I have options when it comes to guanciale, and that I never have to do without lardo. I love that our best chefs take full advantage of the entirety of the pig, and, in doing so, force us all to reconsider the glory of this fine animal every time we tuck into a plateful of any single part of it. I love the pig tails at Alla Spina. I love that Kanella serves organic pig cheeks, and that, if you look hard enough, you’ll see more pig entrails and organs available for consumption in this city than you probably ever imagined. I love the fact that pig ears are finally popular, and that, in addition to chefs and other food professionals, they’re being enjoyed by people who just plain like them, or who are willing to try them for the first time. I love that our barbecue culture is as deep and varied as anywhere in the nation, and that, even if you want to cook up some ‘Q at home, you can find entire pigs with which to do it. I love that, when you’re done gorging yourself on all the fruits of the swine, you can wash it down with a great local beer, or world-class cocktails, or wine from a killer list. And then, stomach settled and swine-sweat gently mopped from your forehead, you’ll still have a thousand other piggy options to keep on going. Plus, we have great hospitals here if you take it too far. Thanks, Jefferson, UPenn and Hahnemann. 

FOOD & DRINK / Recent Reviews LUCHA CARTEL 207 Chestnut St. 267.825.7103. luchacartel.com Cuisine: Mexican- and Latin-inspired food. Each thumbnail-sized piece of the crispy fish tacos was perfectly fried with beer batter and crunchy. The chorizo burger was better—traditional and jalapeno-spiked sausages blended with ground beef into a flavorful 9-ounce patty, topped by a crown of fried queso tropical. The real bright spot at Lucha, it seemed, was with pork. Pork confit, swirling with life from its overnight orange juice marinade, anchored a happy hour carnitas taco. Each bite left the faintest aroma on the tongue, the result of smart additions of cinnamon, cumin, clove, and Mexican Coca-Cola. Cochinita pibil was well conceived and executed, each bite ringing with the pleasant tang of guajillo peppers, a whiff of achiote and orange juice. (Brian Freedman) NOORD 1046 Tasker St. 267.909.9704. noordphilly.com Cuisine: Dutch-centric Northern European. The rabbit leg confit maintained a moistness and delicacy that the notoriously difficult-tocook meat rarely achieves. Forked with zuurkool (think of sauerkraut) as well as a coin of smoked pork sausage, and maybe a tender carrot slice, this was as hearty as it was thoughtful. So, too, were the bitterballen, gorgeous fried meatballs of roux-creamy braised pork lifted with nutmeg and mustard. They arrived four to the order, a neat little procession of rich, palate-coating goodness. One of them had developed a crack in its carapace, and the impossibly moist center had begun to ooze out: one of the sexiest things I’d seen all month. A special of chicken croquettes, also perfectly fried, embodied a different side of the concept, seasoned with onion powder and thyme and based on the previous day’s impeccable rotisserie chicken. (B.F.) PENNSYLVANIA 6 114 S. 12th St. pennsylvania6philly.com Cuisine: American bistro, elevated. This is serious American food devoid of pretense, just as it should be. The lobster roll was a wonder of dignified simplicity, the lobster cooked in a court bouillon just to the point of tenderness and not a moment longer, the brioche roll gleefully buttered and toasted until the edges took on the texture of a creme brulee’s crown. The chef cast yellowfin tuna in an earthier light than usual, the accompanying parsley-caper vinaigrette and olives framing the fish in a unique and riveting manner. Kampachi, with its hit of cumin salt and cilantro, and the bright tang of lime and gooseberry, was a gently spicy, vaguely Latin-inspired plating that lingered on the palate long after it was swallowed. (B.F.) SAIGON CUISINE 4000 Chestnut St. 215.222.9777. Cuisine: Vietnamese, with occasional forays to China. Their pho is excellent, built on a base of broth whose clarity and purity of flavor sets it apart. Unlike so many more deeply developed pho broths in the city, this one is unique for its lightness, delicacy and remarkable freshness. As such, it took exceptionally well to the traditional accompaniments of lime, basil, scallion, onion, sprouts and cilantro. The tofu roll succeeded for a similar reason: With its fried batons of tofu all mushroom-y and earthy, this gently basil-perfumed appetizer was memorable for its freshness and clarity as well. Shrimp stew arrived

Pennsylvania 6

sizzling in a clay pot, and the music of its crackling procession to the table accurately heralded the treats tucked inside. The shrimp, all plump and generous, luxuriated in a sweet-tangy sauce that, by the time it had cooled off enough to taste, glazed the outside of each curled-up crustacean. (B.F.) STRANGELOVE’S 216 S. 11th St. strangelovesbeerbar.com Cuisine: Southern-inspired gastropub. Fried catfish bites, all creamy and tender inside their crackly carapace, were lovely on their own but even better when dragged through a spicy-tart remoulade. Mushroom torta, constructed on a base of Mexican-style flatbread, proved to be a clever reworking of the more familiar ones that have grown so tired lately. And its topping, like the best of the dishes here, managed to be both restrained and rewarding: arugula, lemon, a truffle vinaigrette and a spread of butter-cooked corn even pureed with honey. Even the fried green tomatoes, if their crown of crabmeat ravigote, tomatoes and cucumber was a touch too wet, ultimately won me over with the sheer pleasure of its flavors. (B.F.) XI’AN SIZZLING WOKS 902 Arch St. 215.925.1688 Cuisine: Chinese. Biang biang noodles, each one as long as the entire track of the former R5 and jauntily ragged along the edges, practically springs back against the molars with the first few chews. Glistening with a deeply savory, unexpectedly refreshing ginger scallion sauce, they are, for $5.95 a bowl, among the great bargains in Chinatown. “Special Ma-la hot,” all shimmering red like some sort of liquid ruby, and with chili flakes clinging to the edge of the ceramic vessel, contained an entire universe of treats: Cabbage and broccoli and slippery vermicelli and beef like a shot of umami straight to the heart. And then there’s the glorious liang pi, a heaving helping of chewy noodles, glutenous wheat nubs like some kind of soaked bread, thin-sliced lengths of cucumber and a sauce as bracingly piquant-spicy as any in the ‘hood.

MUSIC

ON THE RECORD Album reviews in 30 seconds or less. By Bill Chenevert // bchenevert@philadelphiaweekly.com

Diplo

Revolution EP (Mad Decent) Sounds like: Thomas Wesley Pentz’ umpteenth EP is obvi good for a few hype club bangers (“Biggie Bounce”) and wasted freakouts, but it’s far from amazing. Free association: When an EP is one-third remixes, you get a little disenchanted. For fans of: Riff Raff/Mike Posner + idiots who twerk; his Block Parties; sluts.

Lissie

Back to Forever (Fat Possum) Sounds like: The Illinois girl’s second LP isn’t as perfect as her debut and first EP, but her uniquely charming combo of folk, Americana and country is spot-on. Free association: Unforgettable: the night I saw her at the Church in a snowstorm. For fans of: Miranda Lambert/Neko Case/Brandi Carlile x Stevie Nicks.

Cults

Static (Columbia) Sounds like: Their second’s an excellent follow-up with a focus on grooves, rhythms and percussion, all while sunny harmonies and wall-of-sound beauty abound. Free association: Might not yield another “Go Outside,” but this one’s more robust. For fans of: Tennis/Seapony/Summer Camp x Phil Spector; California; sunny day joints.

Sleigh Bells

Bitter Rivals (Mom & Pop Music) Sounds like: One of the coolest duos in music’s third gets awesomer as you listen because the single’s a lil’ whack, but they’re the best noise pop act in the game. Free association: Their absurdity at piercingly loud volumes is surprisingly enjoyable. For fans of: CSS/The Kills/Crystal Castles + the Go! Team; punk converted into pop hooks.

The Dismemberment Plan

Uncanney Valley (Partisan Records) Sounds like: The D.C.-based legends of post-punk and mathy indie rock give us something to really settle into with a fantastic, thoughtful new piece of music. Free association: Man, I was really obsessed with Emergency & I (‘99) for a little while. For fans of: Pinback x Ted Leo; Spoon + Les Savy Fav; Shellac/Jawbox; grown nerd rock.

of Montreal

lousy with sylvianbriar (Polyvinyl) Sounds like: The Elephant 6 collective mainstay and Kevin Barnes vehicle rides again with their trademark blend of psychedelia, dream pop and bizarro rock. Free association: Even when they’re weird (often), it’s always flawlessly put together. For fans of: Elf Power/Neutral Milk Hotel; The Beatles x Velvet Underground; men in nail polish.

The Unbossed and the Unimpressed Mt. Airy’s own Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah embraces Philly’s “So what?” attitude toward musicians. By Max Ufberg // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

I

n the beginning, we did something that was a little bit different,” says Alec Ounsworth, “and it had to do with a combination of stubbornness and good luck and genuine belief in the general public.” We’re sitting in a warm cafe on Germantown Avenue, and it’s evident that the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah frontman is a regular. The soft-spoken Ounsworth, sporting his wedding band and a red Phillies cap, chats amicably with other locals who pass by the table. It’s funny that Ounsworth—despite the Billboard-charting album sales, the sold-out shows at Union Transfer and the write-ups in The New York Times—can remain so unnoticed. But, he points out, that’s one of the perks of a city like Philadelphia, as opposed to the star-inebriated culture of New York or L.A. That he should prefer obscurity isn’t really surprising, either. Spend five minutes with the guy, and you’ll see that he doesn’t exactly scream Lollapaloozaplaying-rock star, even though that’s exactly what he is. Better yet, just look at his band’s history, one that shows a refusal to let any past success dictate musical direction. “As far as I’m concerned, you can’t think, ‘Oh, maybe I should toe a line here,’” Ounsworth says through a grin. “To me, that’s not why I got into this.” CYHSY’s eponymous debut in 2005 was a milestone for independent music. There was no record label to offer financial support, no A&R team to organize single release dates or press campaigns. It was just the Mt. Airy-raised Ounsworth and his bandmates, promoting the album on their website and selling it at shows. The return on their investment was swift and sure; television appearances and slots at festivals soon followed. This blog-based road to success is what makes CYHSY such a Millennial-specific story; theirs is a career jump-started by MP3 downloads and music blogs rather than one of high-rise meeting rooms and promotional posters. CYHSY showed the music community that not only did a DIY approach allow for more creative freedom, it could also be more lucrative. But despite a seeming indebtedness to the Internet, Ounsworth insists that he has no interest in critical acclaim. “I don’t read reviews,” he says matter-of-factly. “If people show up to shows, then I gather that it’s working for some people. If they don’t, it’s not.” This maverick attitude explains the band’s subsequent career arc. 2007’s Some Loud Thunder was released to more lukewarm reviews. Critics harped on the album’s more experimental nature— the opening track features a purposefully fuzzy, blown-out bass line. “Our second record was commercial suicide for a lot of people,” says Ounsworth, who admits that their steadfast commitment to artistry has certainly had commercial repercussions. Still, he’s sticking by that philosophy. “It very much confuses me when people say, ‘Well, what will people think about this group?’ I can’t keep track,” he says. “I never think I’m playing to cattle or something like that. I think I’m playing to individual people. You stick to what you believe is right and don’t try to guess.” CYHSY’s 2011 follow-up, Hysterical, a decidedly more restrained album laced with lush synthesizers, faced a similarly tepid response. Last year, the band’s guitarist Robbie Guertin and bassist Tyler Sargent left to pursue other projects, leaving Ounsworth and drummer Sean Greenhalgh to shoulder the load. So when the two headed north to upstate New York to record the band’s fourth al-

The music maker: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah frontman Alex Ounsworth has no interest in critical acclaim, he says.

bum, due out next year, CYHSY teamed up once again with producer Dave Fridmann, who worked on Thunder. It’s probably safe to expect another weird and wild CYHSY record. And, as Ounsworth points out, if fans keep showing up to concerts and listening to the records, then critics be damned. Given Philadelphia’s relative lack of nationally-recognizable artists, it’s odd that Ounsworth isn’t known more prominently as a Philly musician. He’s often associated with Brooklyn, a place that the other CYHSY band members have called home. He’s certainly got the frankness, and the honesty, that Philadelphians are so famous for. And as his unwillingness to bend to critical pressure shows, he’s a hardass. “One of the reasons that I like Philadelphia is because if you’re a musician, people don’t seem to really care. You’re just like anybody else,” he says, speaking fondly of his relationship with the local music scene. “And Philly’s a tough audience. They don’t pretend to like you. They challenge you. I like that.”  Sat., Oct. 19. 6:45pm. Free. Jamaican Jerk Hut, 1436 South St. bloktoberfestphilly.com

Drawing Back

One urban intellectual’s attempt to get back in touch with his inner woodsman.

I

’m having trouble aiming the bow. I’m supposed to hold it up level, so that a series of circles and pins on the bowstrings and the bow itself line up. The problem is, my right eye is my good eye, and it’s also the one I seem to instinctively close while aiming. This is second only to closing both eyes as the worst possible way to aim. “I’d give you an eyepatch if I had one,“ says Ray Caba, the veteran archer who’s patiently trying to teach me. “But you’ll train your eyes eventually.” Archery is an odd thing. By turns a survival practice, a sport and an art form, it’s been with humanity as far back as the Paleolithic era, 11,000 years ago. While more powerful, precise and relevant methods of hunting have taken their place at the forefront of both food acquisition and marksmanship, archery has hung on. It’s thrilled us as both an Olympic-level sport and the weapon of choice for heroes of popular culture, from Robin Hood to Katniss Everdeen. I went to the Penn-Del Archery Club in Bethel Township, just outside the city, to see if I could figure out why the bow and arrow continue to play such a heartfelt part in so many people’s lives. I couldn’t have picked a better place. The Penn-Del Archery Club, which provides practice space for members, as well as holding World Archery Federation tournaments, is 51 acres straight out of Sherwood Forest. The 12 original members each put in $1,000 to buy the land back in 1952, and it stands as a pastoral retreat of fields and woods in the midst of the surrounding developments. Lush with old growth, streams and boulders, it’s a far more pleasant set-up than the bare field with targets that’s used for Olympicstyle shooting. Club secretary Pat Greager is incredibly aware of how desirable the land is. “Every day, I get offers from developers who are drooling,” she says. One was willing to trade them 90 acres for their 51—“but in an area where you can’t shoot. So what’s the point?” It makes sense that Penn-Del has spent the last 60 years resisting developers: So, in a way, has archery. While the materials that make up bows and arrows are constantly being tinkered with and improved, and the invention of the compound bow in the late ‘60s has given a mechanical edge to the sport, archery has remained essentially unchanged since those Paleolithic days. It’s not that archery resists progress—one look at Ray’s cherry-red, sports-car-esque compound bow speaks to how new tech and old prac-

tices can move hand in hand. Rather, it’s that the technology doesn’t change what you’re doing in the slightest. You’re still pulling back on a string and hoping to hit a target in the middle of nature, just as those cavemen did. For an act that sends something hurtling away from you at 184 mph, so much of archery is about an awareness of your own body. Pulling the bowstring back requires the muscles in the back just as much as the muscles in the arms. Different bows require you pull your hand back to your mouth, your eye. Which eye are you favoring? How’s your breath? The longer you hold your arm up, the less likely you are to hit the target, so this awareness is paramount. The body needs to be in perfect alignment before you can even begin to aim. My body is out of alignment. In addition to my remedial aiming skills, my posture is no good, and I have difficulty remembering to pull my hand back once it’s let go of the bowstring. The whole move, from notching to drawing to aiming to release, should be fluid—“Like a breath,” Ray says. When he shoots, I see exactly what he means. The

motion is a full-body inhalation, only to be released with the arrow. My draw, however, is almost asthmatic, all sharp gulps and uncomfortable pauses. But I try to breathe, try to be aware of my body. Before too long, my posture is correct, and my right hand slides back after release just like it should. My aim is still terrible, but I’m learning to breathe. I spent most of my life as an “indoor kid.” My parents tried their best to get me interested in sports, but they never clicked with me. I was—and probably still am—too competitive. Athletics weren’t just about competing with the other team, but also about competing against my teammates, judging myself against their performance. As a fat kid, rather than be reminded of how much I fell short every Saturday, I instead opted out of sports all together. Now I wonder if things would have been different had I been given a bow instead of a baseball bat. Archery isn’t about battling another opponent. It’s not even about battling the target, as Ray says—though I’m certain that comes later, once you achieve a certain level of skill. Before you can begin to combat

that target, before you can work on directing your winged missile out of your bow, you first have to battle yourself. It’s a surprisingly introspective sport, forcing you to look inward as you hope to impact something far, far away. Which gives us an idea of why archery is enjoying a bit of resurgence, especially among indoor kids who prefer to read dystopian sci-fi novels. It may be true that most of us no longer need to hunt for our own food; peace of mind, however, is a quarry that remains oddly elusive. Archery makes it easier: The target is several yards away. The target is also in the center of your chest. To succeed, you have to align them. As skills go, that one is pretty universal. ■ Jared Axelrod’s new PW series, “Made New,” explores a broad spectrum of artisans, makers and thinkers who update old-fashioned practices to enhance 21st-century life.

Let the Fire Burn

Still a Hot Topic Let the Fire Burn revisits a dark place in Philly history.

I

t’s an open wound in Philadelphia’s history: On May 13, 1985, police attempted to force revolutionary organization MOVE to vacate their townhouse on Osage Avenue. When tear gas and fire hoses didn’t work, they dropped four pounds of C4. The house caught fire; it spread, consuming over 60 homes and killing 11 MOVE members, including five children. Director Jason Osder has assembled a careful, chilling documentary in Let the Fire Burn, tracing that fateful day and its context (particularly a standoff in 1978 in which a police officer was murdered and for which nine MOVE members were convicted), toeing the line between archivist and inquisitor. He avoids talking heads or narrators. The footage–pulled directly from MOVE documentaries, news reports, the deposition of sole child survivor Michael Moses Ward and public hearings convened in the aftermath–is imbued with the raw urgency of events as they happen. Osder examines some of the underlying social complexities involved in MOVE’s history, suggesting it as idealistic but flawed, increasingly hardline against hostile police forces and alienated from the community. Despite the group’s issues, the horror that unfolded on Osage Avenue eventually defies description, a shock echoed in near-silent news footage as reporters are struck dumb and the condemning silence of key witnesses at the hearings that followed. The stricken faces of the committee members aren’t so much close-ups as mirrors. Let the Fire Burn asks hard questions about the scope of governmental power that have yet to be answered. It is a wrenching, necessary film. (Genevieve Valentine) Sat., Oct. 26, 2pm. $10-$12. Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St. After the screening is a panel discussion with Osder, Philadelphia Police Officer Jim Berghaier; Michael and Randi Boyette, authors of the 1989 book Let It Burn: The Philadelphia Tragedy; and Ramona Africa, MOVE’s longtime minister of communication.

ilm festivals are a unique opportunity for movie buffs: There’s livetheater anticipation in seeing a film that either hasn’t been widely released or has been absent from the silver screen in decades. Without a distributor, some of these gems may never be seen again. (Honestly, isn’t that part of the lure?) And in the company of other rabid movie enthusiasts, mutually geeking out about these masterworks in condensed real-time doesn’t just feel good; it feels correct. It’s certainly no secret that since 1991, the Philadelphia Film Festival has been bringing the best entries among the nation’s festival circuit to our fair city, as well as foreign films, indie sneak peeks and commemorative bigscreen revivals. This year’s 10-day gathering, set for Oct. 17 through Oct. 27, is bigger than ever, with over 80 feature films slated in five venues. For a head start, here’s a preview of special events and screenings on deck at the 2013 PFF that come with the PW stamp of approval. All Is Lost. In case Gravity didn’t sate your desire for wracking stories of a solitary human life pitted against the immeasurable fury of nature, the opening-night festivities feature a special screening of J.C. Chandor’s All Is Lost, a one-man naval disaster tale that’s already garnering awards buzz for star Robert Redford. Thurs., Oct. 17, 8pm. Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center, 300 S. Broad St. Philadelphia. Join Jonathan Demme for a 20-year anniversary screening of his 1993 drama, which has become a touchstone of gay cinema for its frank portrayal of homophobia and the problems faced by the gay community in light of the AIDS epidemic. Afterward, Demme will discuss this Oscar-winning work, as well as the upcoming Fear of Falling, adapted from Ibsen’s The Master Builder. Tues., Oct. 22, 8:30pm. Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St. The Invisible Lighthouse. Musician Thomas Dolby strikes gold with a unique documentary he wrote, directed and edited as an exquisite tribute to the beloved lighthouse of his youth on an island in East Anglia. The Invisible Lighthouse blends its impressionistic film footage with live music composed by Dolby, alongside sound effects by guest foley artist Blake Leyh. Thurs., Oct. 24, 8pm. The Trocadero, 1003 Arch St. Let the Fire Burn. See sidebar. Days of Heaven. Terrence Malick’s films are often not so much narratives as cinematic meditations on themes, their scripts esoteric, their downbeats breathing within the kind of visuals that make you understand why movies are made. Days of Heaven, one of his most sharply-observed films, is technically a quasi-Western about a love triangle gone tangled, and its leads project every expression with the frame-swallowing intensity of a silent film. But ultimately, with Malick, the camera loves its characters most as figurines in a landscape so striking, it seems almost fantasy—here, they stand amid the wide grass-seas, under the achingly vast sky. Sun., Oct. 20, 8pm. Ritz East, 125 S. Second St. Cold Eyes. This Korean thriller, a remake of 2007 Hong Kong action flick Eye in the Sky, has been making the rounds at film festivals this year. Focused on a police surveillance unit and the new rookie’s quest to intercept an elusive bank robber and earn her place on the team, this movie settles comfortably amid genre tropes, though it’s framed as much like a high-stakes heist as a cop thriller. Han Hyo-joo and Sol Kyung-Goo are particularly good, respectively, as the rookie Ha Yoon-Joo and her mentor, Chief Hwang, giving the genre a boost that’s swift, slick and stylish. Thurs., Oct. 24, 7pm. Ritz East, 125 S. Second St. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Outstanding actor Idris Elba has burst from under the radar to become a cinema darling in recent years for roles as varied as the BBC’s Luther and the apocalypse-canceling patriarch of Pacific Rim. Though director Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) might be stretching himself thin in this attempt to cover several decades in the life of the visionary Nelson Mandela, it’s safe to say Elba will shine. Wed., Oct. 23, 8:30pm. Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St.

Another boss named Bruce: Iconic actor Bruce Dern, this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, is shown in a scene from Nebraska.

Blue Highway. This indie comedy follows a young couple cross-country as they visit their favorite movie locations and begin to reevaluate their future. Blue Highway offers a glimpse of the fest’s Rising Star Award recipient, Kerry Bishé. If you prefer your rising stars in something faster-paced, stick around to check out Bishé in the concert hall thriller Grand Piano, starring Elijah Wood as a pianist attempting to bang out the Rach 3 and thwart a sniper in real time. Sat., Oct. 19, 7:45pm. Ritz East, 125 S. Second St. Grand Piano screens at 9:45pm. Philomena. Judi Dench and Steve Coogan star in a movie you should see ‘cause it stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Wed., Oct. 23, 6:30pm. Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St. The German Doctor. This Spanish-language film follows a family in postWWII Argentina and their entanglements with a German doctor who insists their daughter is a “perfect specimen.” This gripping, creepy drama about the evil next door was a smash at Cannes and has already been named Argentina’s selection for next year’s foreign-language Oscar. Tues., Oct. 22, 3:10pm. Ritz East, 125 S. Second St. Nebraska. Bruce Dern, whose spent a career subsuming himself in compelling performances in movies from Walter Hill’s The Driver to Hal Ashby’s Coming Home, is this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. His festival appearance this year is in Nebraska, also a road-tripper, as the alcoholic Woody, whose increasing dementia leads him to believe he’s won the lottery. Will Forte plays his son, who decides to literally go along for the ride. Sat., Oct. 19, 8:30pm. Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center, 300 S. Broad St. Mary, Queen of Scots. “She knocked at my door,” said Thomas Imbach at TIFF on the central character of his obsessively personal period drama. Though he’d initially planned to make a modern adaptation, he eventually decided to keep her in-period and “focus on the psychological,” using Stefan Zweig’s 1935 biography as a starting point. Camille Rutherford, a relative newcomer, was hand-picked for her magnetism as the title character, and Imbach turned to films like Barry Lyndon as inspiration for the film’s gorgeous landscapes and dream-logic intimacy. Sat., Oct. 19, 2:30pm. Ritz East, 125 S. Second St.

hen AJ Olsen gets to Fairmount Park next Saturday afternoon, he expects to be outnumbered by a gathering of protesters attempting to drown him out. Olsen, 25, is a member of Keystone United, a white-nationalist group originally founded under the name Keystone State Skinheads. For the past seven years, he and other KU members (the group has at least eight chapters across Pennsylvania) have come to Fairmount Park in Philadelphia and marched to the Thorfinn Karlsefni statue along Kelly Drive to commemorate Leif Erikson Day. Here’s how Olsen describes his group’s beliefs: “We feel that the European population has done so much more than any other culture for this country to make it as great as it is, and I think people tend to have forgotten that, [due to] schooling and social programs that made something negative out of the positive that came about it… Slavery, obviously, was terrible and horrible, and it was wrong; it’s a stain on American history, it’s a stain on a lot of countries’ history—but should that be constantly thrown in our faces? No. I didn’t own any slaves; I wasn’t around.” If posters plastered all over Philadelphia in advance of the event are any indication, there will be a well-orchestrated group of anti-KU protesters around on the 19th; they plan to be on the scene at 11 a.m. bearing “signs, banners, noise makers or drums.” According to an email put out by Philadelphia Residents Against Racism and the One People’s Project, they’ll be there “to block/drown out the hate-speech of the Nazis.” Olsen says—as KU members have said in the past—that their celebration of the Norse explorer who’s said to have journeyed to North America in 1003 A.D. is a family-themed cultural event. “I honestly don’t understand why we have any kind of opposition to this” event, he says. “It seems to be strictly because it’s us doing it, which seems kind of preposterous, really, to me.” He insists that the group’s name change five years ago reflected a more moderate direction. Yet a website for the Keystone State Skinheads, under its original name, remains online and up to date. Pennsylvania has a long history of whitepower groups coming out of rural parts of the state and causing trouble, and members of Keystone State Skinheads have rap sheets dating back to its founding in 2001, with arrests relating to ethnic intimidation, assault and other charges. Olsen disputes none of that during a phone interview with PW; at the same time, he professes to be bewildered that the anti-racism groups have “a fascination with trying to make us look bad, for whatever reason.” “Things are very much toned down from what they used to be,” he says, and “you also have to take into account the years of maturity that people have undergone.” Critics see “hate as

a motivation for what was done in past times,” he suggests, “as opposed to now, which is just love for our own kind, for our cities, our neighborhoods, our people, as opposed to hatred for another. A lot of times in years past, things were done because guys didn’t like people of a certain color for whatever reason. It was motivated out of hatred whereas now it is not.” Daryle Lamont Jenkins, head of the One People’s Project, doesn’t find that a terribly convincing argument. “They will try to downplay the Nazism of years past,” he says. “They’ve kept the swastika flags at home; they come with European flags and try to play dumb.” Anti-racism protesters, Jenkins says, want to make sure that when Keystone United and other white-nationalist groups—like the Council of Concerned Citizens, the Vinlanders Social Club and the Hated Skins— come to Philadelphia, they understand they’re not welcome. “We definitely do not want them to feel comfortable,” he says. “If we don’t start getting a hold of it, we’re going to see things get worse and worse, like they always do. And we don’t want that happening in 2013.” According to reports and videos from past Leif Erikson Day events, a couple dozen white nationalists and a couple dozen protesters have often faced off across a line of Philadelphia bicycle police. The nationalists use a megaphone to read a speech from a placard; meanwhile, protesters chant slogans like: “No Nazis, no KKK, no fascist USA!” Years ago, Olsen grants, the white nationalists involved in the event included “dudes stepping down the streets and using violence and trying to overthrow the government to do things we want.” Today, he says they realize that’s “not realistic and it’s not going to happen for anybody, so, obviously, being a white nationalist, the way to change things for the better is to get the community as a whole to want to change and want to go about doing certain things,” he says. “We’re not superheroes.” Indeed. “These are neo-Nazi skinheads,” says Barry Morrison, the regional director of the AntiDefamation League. (The ADL is a 100-year-old international organization dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism and bigotry in general.) ”They are invoking the memory of someone who they extol and see as an icon and embodiment of white heritage that they identify with: Viking and western European stock, if you will.” Morrison says the ADL isn’t happy about Olsen’s group’s actions—”but it’s certainly a reminder that there are people who practice hatred, bigotry and prejudice. Fortunately, they have not been very successful at attracting attention. They don’t have much of a following.” ■

etting punched in the face is an experience I recommend for every dedicated smartass. Aside from the obvious storytelling value a solid right offers, it necessarily humbles you. Personally, I’d wondered my entire life what the sensation truly felt like; I’d wince whenever I saw footage of physical fights between men, and my hands would shake whenever I came close to blows during an argument—which is a rather frequent situation for a smartass who can’t keep his mouth shut. Up until last December, though, the idea of getting socked was just that: a hypothetical scenario. That’s why I taunted the fellow bunking next to me in the homeless shelter after he hurled an unforgivable “faggot” my way. I expected to incite a back-and-forth in which I could show off my wit, my mastery of the cruel insult, my Ivy League pedigree and years in amateur rhetoric and debate. Instead, I saw something out of the corner of my right eye and then saw, literally, stars, as brilliant explosions of blue filled my vision. I started to feel hot wetness on my face. I was relieved to see blood, not just tears, pouring down, because that meant I could assure myself, as I chased after him down the hallway toward security, that the tears were only from the affected eye. After all, if both eyes were tearing up instead of just the one that received the blow, I would’ve been, in my mind, even worse than what he called me; instead of being a gay guy on the receiving end of slackjawed bigotry, I would’ve been a crying faggot. There in the shelter I’d matriculated into, the punch felt like a punctuation mark—a definite period, making sure I’d stopped to take note that I had what polite society would consider a miserable failure of a life. With every opportunity I’d been presented up to that point, it seemed, I’d chosen to spit in favor’s eye. First, I became the first person in my entire family ever accepted into a university; it was a fancy one, too. Shortly thereafter, I became the first to get kicked out of college, for convincing myself that sitting on a bar stool was more instructive than going to anthropology class. (It was, actually.) Later, the years I spent proving my college failure didn’t matter to mediocre middle managers, clawing my way from a minimumwage job enrolling kids in T-ball up to an office overlooking the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, ended in the most humiliating way possible: an emotional meltdown following my HIV

positive diagnosis, leaving my boss with the memory of me in jean cut-offs and a Captain America T-shirt furiously typing out a profanity-laden resignation email. A few months, and lots of drugs, sex, and electrohouse music later, I found myself shivering outside the main branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia with the other bums. At that point, I called Project HOME and walked two miles up Broad Street for “emergency intake.” I’d had enough of the cold—but I had mostly had enough of all the time. One of the least understood facts about being homeless is the nature of the “free time” you have. You have to spend all your time in today, instead of thinking about tomorrow. You have to figure out how to not smell like urine, how to pay for cigarettes (I can assure you the urgency ramps up noticeably), how to not get an infection in your foot from the blister that just broke because you’ve been walking around Center City all day aimlessly. Sharing intelligence with other homeless guys who were generally sane, I learned about where to get the best free hot lunch (St. John’s Hospice, 12th and Race) or which hotels had easily accessible public restrooms. My favorite was Le Meridien: If I cleaned up enough and put pomade in my hair, my Northface backpack looked like luggage instead of my house, and I could spend a good half hour in the hotel’s basement bathroom reading the last copy of Vanity Fair mailed to my post office box. One of my new peers had a hustle where he would put on a collared shirt and carry a messenger bag, telling commuters in Suburban Station he was a dollar short of his train fare and brothercouldyouspareadime? Because he was young and white, he always made enough off empathetic suburban folks to buy cigarettes and feed himself; the young, homeless black guys, on the other hand, wouldn’t even try such a thing because of the pointlessness of it. Post-racial America, indeed. Before I started making friends with my new “coworkers,” I tried being the strong, silent type; I would eschew conversations with others I knew to be homeless I would spend days in the library reading alone or trying to problem-solve my situation. Now and then, I’d make collect phone calls begging relatives and friends for loans and second chances. Most of all, I would ignore the problem altogether by pretending I still wasn’t a bum.


This approach led to hunger. True hunger is a feeling most Americans cannot grasp; it is a pit in your stomach that echoes dully and begins to shriek whenever you see someone eating a sandwich. Without food for a long enough time, your gut whines and starts to play more tricks with your head than drugs ever could. In fact, the few times I found myself imagining robbing another person were when I, sober, was the hungriest— after all, a quick mugging would probably get me at least enough to get a meal. Even at my most mindlessly ravenous, though, I couldn’t stifle my conscience that much; I worried that ruining some poor grad student’s day would leave a permanent scar on the guy and a sour taste about Philadelphia in his mouth. Eventually, that meant I had to engage my homeless peers to learn how to survive. Quiet dignity sounds nice, but nobody wants to be the idiot who starves to death with a copy of Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces in his expensive backpack. So, asking around, I eventually came to

name. Then I sat another six hours while half a dozen social workers steadily worked through the other men who’d arrived before I had. By sheer luck, they got to me just before closing time, and another kind woman directed me to a shelter called Fernwood, in Northeast Philadelphia. She handed me two SEPTA tokens—a common refrain during interactions with social workers—and wished me well. I walked out past eight or nine other guys who weren’t as lucky; they were put into a cargo van and sent to spend another night in temporary emergency shelters.

ELEPHANT ROOM Three magicians. Two acts. One room. Zero boring stuff. Sub-zero intelligence.

For days at Fernwood—curiously situated on the same grounds as the Curran-Frumhold Correctional Facility, perhaps as a reminder of what not to do during times of extreme hunger—I would wander the halls inspecting what, apparently, was once a hospital or retirement home for old crooks. RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES, read the cracked enamel sign on a door in the central hall that led nowhere; in

Without food for a long enough time, your gut starts to play more tricks with your head than drugs ever could. the conclusion that I’d had enough time on the street. I had to go into the shelter system.

After my emergency intake at the Salvation Army’s Station House with a compassionate woman who did not once humiliate me with the question, “Why are you here?” I found myself temporarily placed in a place called Somerset near the Divine Lorraine. The institutionstyle building stood right across an alleyway from a hotel whose sign bragged, callously, about having cable television. Completing another round of paperwork in duplicate, I asked the man behind the caged registration desk, an apparent alumnus of the shelter, when I could get a meal. “You just missed dinner,” he said. “Breakfast at 7. Here’s a towel for a shower.” Just a few hours earlier, I had convinced a friend to let me shower in his apartment—a rare treat for me in those days. “Oh, I already showered today. Thank you, though,” I replied, like I was checking into Le Meridien. “Kid,” he said, “they ain’t gonna let you in unless you wash yourself first.” After that, I half expected a sadistic guard to hit me with cakes of white delousing powder. Instead, I got a tiny bar of soap and overly-perfumed moisturizer donated, apparently, from the Marriott. Early the next morning, I found myself at 802 N. Broad Street for long-term shelter placement intake. I sat there for about an hour before I got to give the receptionist my

the courtyard, postmodern sculptures were the perfect cigarette butt receptacles. Three fellow social rejects shared my dormitory-style sleeping area; we called these pods, and they were tiled areas, each housing four bunks cordoned off into “rooms.” One of mu podmates babbled incessantly about Mexicans, crackers, faggots and cops all night, every night. He took a particular hostility to my presence; after several days, I’d had enough and, on a whim, blew a snide kiss at him. This set him over the edge, leading inexorably to the moment when I got a fist in the face. Immediately, the man was ejected from the grounds. About an hour later, the cops showed up, and refused to do anything. After all, it was a fight between two bums. A few weeks later, as things were getting better for me, I ran into the guy at St. John’s Hospice while eating lunch. Recognizing me, but seemingly not remembering the assault at all, he asked me how I was. My confusion notwithstanding, I still had enough focus to realize that he had wet himself in public. At that point, and for the first time throughout this entire ordeal, I truly felt like a piece of shit. n

My boyfriend and I have been together for two years, and we live together. Recently, his ex was killed in a car accident. They were not on good terms, and he often made scathing statements about her. I made the mistake of saying the following several days after her death: “I don’t know how to help you grieve in this situation because you didn’t like her.” Obviously, that was a stupid, careless thing to say. I apologized numerous times, and he said that he forgave me. Fast-forward two weeks. We were out having drinks with friends. He disappeared from the bar and wouldn’t answer my calls. When I got home, he was there drinking with our roommate and some of his friends who were crashing at our house, including his friend’s wife. I was angry and went to bed. I awoke at 8 a.m. alone and went downstairs, where I found him making out with his friend’s wife on our porch. They were both incredibly drunk. Later, he told me he was still angry about my comment, accused me of hating his ex and informed me that he spent the entire night venting about me to his friends. I am totally capable of getting over one drunken kiss—everybody makes mistakes. However, I feel like the whole context was incredibly toxic and hurtful. I’m not sure if I’m interested in staying with someone who can’t speak to me like an adult when he has an issue, and instead gets scary drunk and makes out with people. I told him that this chick owes me an apology before I can ever even consider getting over it. I asked him to consider quitting drinking. And I asked him to make it clear to his friends what really happened when it came to our interactions over his ex’s passing, so I don’t have to be treated like the bad guy in this situation. Am I being too demanding? Confused And Concerned About Situation Let’s review your boyfriend’s behavior: gets drunk, ditches girlfriend, gets completely shitfaced back at shared home, bitches about girlfriend to drunk friends, makes out with another woman—who happens to be married to another friend—while his girlfriend sleeps in the next room, gets caught, blames girlfriend. To me, that looks like someone slamming his hand down on the eject button, i.e., he wants out of this relationship. Which means your willingness to stay in this relationship—if “this chick” comes through with the apology you feel she owes you, if your boyfriend corrects the record and quits boozing—may be irrelevant. Because if your boyfriend wants to dump you but lacks the decency, balls or self-awareness to end it himself (it’s possible that he may not be consciously aware that he wants out), CACAS, he’ll keep pulling stunts like this until you’ve had enough and you dump him. I could be wrong, of course, and I’ve been wrong in the past—see “clitoris, location” and “male bisexuality, existence of”—and this is advice not binding arbitration blah blah blah. Maybe his behavior can be attributed to a crazy meltdown reaction to his ex-girlfriend’s death. Clearly, his feelings for his ex were more complicated than he let on. I’m thinking he still had feelings for her, CACAS, and I’m betting that she dumped him. He may have said only shitty things to you about his ex because he thought that’s what you wanted to hear. Reminding him about all of the shit he talked about his ex may have made him angry with himself, and he projected that an-

ger onto you, and now, in the cold/sober light of day, he’ll be able to see that, and he’ll apologize and you can rebuild your relationship. Or, you know, not. My uncle died in a car wreck. I didn’t know him well, but we lived in the same city, and he named me executor of his estate. He was single, childless, straight, unmarried and—as it turns out—pretty kinky. I’ve been looking around online, and some of this stuff in his “playroom” is worth a lot of money. But you can’t haul a $1,000 bondage table out on the lawn for a yard sale (at least not where he lived). So what do you do with a dungeon full of BDSM gear when the owner dies unexpectedly? Boy De-acquisitioning Sadistic Merch There’s an adult section on eBay where you can unload the stuff, BDSM, and NaughtyBids.com is a site dedicated to auctioning off pre-owned sex toys and gear. But if you don’t want to do the work (and you don’t care about cashing in on that bondage table), Google around a bit, and I bet you’ll find a local BDSM group in your area that would be happy take your late uncle’s gear off your hands. I’m a gay man in a happy and open marriage. I routinely seek the services of an erotic masseur, a man with whom I have a great client/serviceprovider relationship. I found out that he was recently in a car accident with his long-term partner, who died in the hospital. Normally, I’d send flowers and a card. However, due to the nature of our working relationship, I don’t want to extend myself in ways that could be uncomfortable for him. I wouldn’t want to put him in the position of having to explain who I am if the card I sent was read by someone else. Wants To Be Respectful He’s a sex worker, WTBR, not a moron. Backing up: If we were talking about your lawyer or hairstylist or housekeeper—anyone else with whom you had a client/service-provider relationship—you wouldn’t hesitate to send flowers and a card. The only reason you’re hesitating in this case is because you fear outing your masseur as a sex worker. And here’s what’s fucked up about that: You’re assuming that he isn’t already out about doing sex work. You’re assuming that being outed as a sex worker is the worst possible thing that could happen to him (I think your masseur can attest that there are worse things). And—most shockingly— you’re assuming that your masseur is too stupid to cover for himself if he isn’t out about doing sex work and if someone else reads your card and if that person asks who you are. Trust me, should a nosy relative ask him who you are—which is highly unlikely—your masseur has lots of options before he gets around to “a decent and kind guy I sometimes jack off for money.” He can say you’re a friend or an acquaintance or someone with whom he’s worked. Better to risk a moment of awkwardness with a nosy relative than to fail to acknowledge your masseur’s humanity at a time like this. And that’s what failing to acknowledge his grief amounts to, WTBR: a failure to acknowledge his humanity. Sex workers are subjected to far too much of that by people who don’t see them as fully human. Don’t participate in the dehumanization of sex workers. Send the flowers. 
