LAWS OF LIFE, TIME, & CHANCE Tuesday, March | : p.m. The Lensic Performing Arts Center W. San Francisco Street Using rapid, iterative feedback between theory and experiments, Srividya Iyer-Biswas works to discover the basic physical laws that govern the behavior of single cells. A physicist at Purdue University and External Professor at the Santa Fe Institute, Iyer-Biswas and her team have reported scaling laws governing the growth and division of cells, and have developed a theory that reveals the emergence of a scalable, cellular unit of time. Her current work involves extending these results to thermodynamics of organismal computation, time-dependent phenomena involving cellular decision-making, and laws that dictate complex biological and social phenomena.

Session Roundup: Cannabis Edition The legislative session is over, but where do New Mexico’s marijuana laws stand? BY W I L L CO ST E L LO w i l l @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
annabis had a mixed record of success in 2019’s 60-day Legislative session. Recreational marijuana failed to make it to the governor’s desk, but two smaller bills, one expanding the hemp industry and the other easing restrictions on medical marijuana patients, both passed both houses of the Legislature. A bill that softens penalties on drug busts also passed and is heading to the governor. She has until April 5 to sign or veto any of the measures. Recreational Bill Failed SFR wrote early last week that recreational marijuana was not likely to pass the Senate—and sure enough, it didn’t. After the bill passed the House of Representatives, some advocates thought it might have some legs, but Sen. John Arthur Smith (D-Deming), who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, said that it would be “a long shot” if the bill got a hearing. Still, it’s the furthest a legalization bill has gotten so far in New Mexico. Some advocates didn’t like the bill anyway, for reasons including a ban on home-grown plants and a requirement to carry a receipt of marijuana purchases, and would rather start fresh. They’ll get their chance next year, as Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signaled at the end of the session that it would be on her agenda during the next one in 2020. “We’re going to make that a priority and we’re going to work during the interim with all parties involved to see if we can’t get to a place that everyone feels good about,” she said at a post-session meeting with reporters. Medical Marijuana, Less Drama Recreational cannabis may have suffered a setback, but the state’s more than 70,000 medical card holders will be happy to hear that, after the passage of SB 406, they don’t have to continue to
renew their license every year. The bill, which the governor is expected to sign, now only requires patients to renew their cards every three years. However, they will still need to see a doctor every year in order to keep their cards. Industrial Hemp Industrial hemp was legalized in New Mexico last year, but the Hemp Manufacturing Act, also on Gov. Lujan Grisham’s desk, would expand what can be done with the plant and allow the research and manufacture of hemp-based products. Hemp looks similar to marijuana and is in the same family, but you can’t get high from it. The plant contains less than 0.3 percent THC, the psychoactive ingredient in its sister. Instead, hemp, which has been referred to as a billion-dollar cash crop, is used for its fibers, oils and seeds to make textiles, food and cosmetics, among other uses. The bill “provides regulatory authority to a couple of state agencies to oversee hemp manufacturers,” says Brad Lewis, division director for agricultural and environmental services at the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, who spoke with SFR on Monday. “Last year’s bill was for growers,” he says in reference to the legalization of hemp farming. “The bill this year addresses the ancillary businesses, the manufacturers.” Just Chill Out, Man… Penalties for being caught with marijuana would be reduced statewide, which isn’t as great as, say, not having penalties at all. But it’s not nothing. If these changes to the criminal code come out on the other side of Gov. Lujan Grisham’s pen, anything less than half an ounce will only get you a penalty assessment and a $50 fine, but between half an ounce and an ounce could get you up to 15 days in jail. Anything between one and eight ounces has a fine that caps out at $1,000 and jail time not to exceed a year. Carrying more than that takes users to felony territory, though, and there aren’t any changes to those stiff laws. Point is, it still sucks that people are going to jail for possessing marijuana, but it might suck a little less now. Sign up for SFR’s monthly Leaf Brief newsletter at SFReporter.com/signup.

Public banks aren’t competition for local credit unions—rather, backers say, they support them.
Banking on the Public Advocacy groups wants to let the people decide what happens with their money through public banks
BY W I L L CO ST E L LO w i l l @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
n late 2016, Wells Fargo, the consumer lending behemoth of Wall Street, attracted the eyes of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the powerful government watchdog and brainchild of 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, for allegedly opening accounts for millions of their customers without their knowledge or permission. Wells charged fees on these accounts, and made a lot of money doing so. Numerous inquiries and Congressional hearings revealed that the accounts were opened as a result of intense downward pressure on salespeople to push outlandishly high and sometimes mathematically impossible sales quotas. The bank has thrown its money behind private prisons, the NRA and the Dakota Access Pipeline, and has been charged heavy fees for insider trading and discriminatory lending (they charged black and brown people more for loans)—not to mention its CEO makes 473 times as much as its average employee, the 33rd-highest pay discrepancy among Fortune 500 companies.
Today, most of the City of Santa Fe’s money is in Wells Fargo’s vaults. A public bank would change that. Mostly a fringe idea advocated by an eclectic array of lefty finance geeks, public banking has been catching steam across the United States in recent years, including in New Mexico. The idea is pretty simple. Rather than parking public funds with a major bank, where they’re invested in all sorts of shady dealings across the world, a state or city would establish an institution to hold that money and loan it to locals for economic development, to governments for projects like affordable housing, or credit unions and community banks to help average people borrow for stuff like cars and homes—all with lower interest rates than big banks would ever offer. All of this would be managed by a board of directors that would likely be appointed by elected officials, such as the governor or the Legislature. This structure, according to David Jette, a co-founder of Public Bank LA, an advocacy group that pushed for a public bank in Los Angeles, “gives residents more control over how their tax dollars are spent.” “Basically, you multiply economic gains while divesting,” Jette says. Divesting means stopping investment in things which, in this instance, the general public decides aren’t so good, like an oil pipeline through Native territory. That’s how Public Bank LA got started; its founders wanted to push their elected officials to stop storing their tax money with banks that were using it to fund projects that threatened water resources, worsened climate change and harmed Native tribes. Eventually, they decided that the best way to do so was a public bank. SFR spoke to several members of the board of directors of the Alliance for Local Economic Prosperity, a group that sprang out of a Santa Fe-based push for a public bank, and asked them all what their eleva-
tor pitch for a public bank would be. They all gave roughly the same answer: “We want to keep New Mexico’s tax dollars local, safe and working.” They also pointed to an unassuming and perhaps unexpected case study: North Dakota. The nation’s first public bank was established there in the early 1900s, and so far, the only place to follow suit has been American Samoa, which established a public bank last year. The Samoan bank doesn’t have much of a track record yet, but the Bank of North Dakota has produced some pretty phenomenal results in its 100 years of existence. When it was founded, the
Basically, you multiply economic gains while divesting. -David Jette, co-founder, Public Bank LA
bank had $2 million ($36 million in 2019 dollars). It now manages over $7 billion, all available to be loaned to North Dakota cities, towns and businesses at interest rates unheard of on Wall Street. If that isn’t enough, North Dakota also has the lowest unemployment rate in the country. North Dakota’s annual budget over the past 10 years is also more than $300 million fatter because of the bank’s returns. So how likely is a potential Public Bank of New Mexico? It’s getting more
realistic every year. The City of Santa Fe commissioned a feasibility study in 2016 and a task force a year later to investigate the possibility of a public bank in Santa Fe. Their conclusion: Santa Fe is too small, and the costs of establishing such an institution are too great to justify a public bank in town. But. They did recommend that the city engage wholeheartedly in any effort to establish a statewide public bank that would serve all of New Mexico. To that end, a memorial bill—albeit one that did not survive—landed in the New Mexico House of Representatives this session “requesting the Legislative Finance Committee to undertake a feasibility study of establishing a state-owned bank in New Mexico.” In pushing for barely known ideas like this one, every step counts. Public Bank LA managed to get a referendum on the 2018 ballot, Measure B, which would establish a public bank for the city. The vote didn’t pass, but the people who worked for it say that it’s a major victory. “We earned 44 percent of the vote,” Jette says of the LA effort. “Obviously that’s hundreds of thousands of votes.” That they could get that many people on board is an encouraging sign for Jette. He added that the biggest problem facing advocates is not resistance to the idea, but simply a lack of knowledge about what a public bank even does. “I don’t think people understand what role banks play in their lives,” Jette says, so helping them take that power back matters. Lovers of their local community bank or credit union need not fear though. Advocates of public banks don’t anticipate that any upstart public banks would offer personal accounts for average consumers, which could drive smaller financial institutions out of business. Rather, a public bank would partner with local banks and credit unions and throw its money behind loans on which credit unions and smaller banks had already done the legwork, potentially providing a lot more money to those institutions to make small business loans, draw up mortgages or issue student loans. Customers would still benefit from the lower interest rates that a public bank could offer. “We very much want to support credit unions and local banks,” says Elaine Sullivan, the board president of the Alliance for Local Economic Prosperity. “There are three and a half times more thriving community banks in North Dakota than the rest of the states. That comes with a level of transparency that global banks don’t have.”

Wild Horses of Placitas Sanctuary seeks to rehome wild horses was to maintain them as such. Because the animals have become increasingly reliant on humans, the sanctuary is looking for new homes. Mustang Camp, a wild horse training facility in Milan, in the western part of the state, has agreed to “gentle” 50 of the horses for private adoption. Placitas WILD is still looking for parties interested in the remaining 25. The relocation has renewed conversations among residents of Placitas about how to manage the horses still roaming free among the hills. Many residents defend the horses as integral to the identity of the town and the surrounding area, yet some conservationists regard them as a threat to the delicate desert ecosystem that has been hit hard by drought, overgrazing and erosion. Some land owners resent the destruction that the horses can cause in yards and gardens, and say that they pose a risk to the safety of drivers. The BLM classifies the horses as “feral” or “free-roaming” rather than wild, which gives the New Mexico Livestock Board license to conduct round-ups when

ree-ranging horses have long been a feature of the landscape around the historic town of Placitas, northeast of Albuquerque. The magnificent sight of a band of dappled palominos or chestnut browns grazing and galloping along the hills at the base of the Sandia Mountains feels iconic—a classic and romantic image of the West. Among residents in surrounding communities, the horses inspire both passion and controversy. Their presence is the source of long-standing debates between wild horse advocates, land owners, conservationists, tribes and government agencies. At the heart of the issue lies the question: How wild is wild? It’s led to community spectacles, round-ups and lawsuits aplenty. And it’s the question behind current efforts to relocate a band of 75 horses from a 400-acre sanctuary on San Felipe Pueblo land. A spokesperson from San Felipe Pueblo tells SFR by phone that the sanctuary, which was established as a partnership between the pueblo and two advocacy groups—Placitas WILD and the Wild Horses Observers Association—was founded to keep herds rounded up by the US Bureau of Land Management and the New Mexico Livestock Board from 2013 to 2016 in their natural habitat between the pueblo and Placitas. The parties hoped to eventually establish a designated open space for the horses on a BLM parcel known as the Buffalo Tract that San Felipe Pueblo claims as part of its aboriginal lands. Yet conflicting claims by the BLM, gravel mining industries, the San Antonio de las Huertas Land Grant and local tribes has left the fate of the Buffalo Tract in limbo. Meanwhile, the horses sequestered at the sanctuary have slowly moved towards domestication. The pueblo says its members regard the horses as wildlife and the intention
landowners complain. Patience O’Dowd of the Wild Horses Observers Association has brought the BLM to court multiple times over this interpretation. “In our view, they are wild and belong on the range because they are part of our natural heritage,” says O’Dowd. “When they get rounded up, they could be euthanized or sold for slaughter.” Selling horses for slaughter is denounced by the BLM, though some wild horses sold at auction have ended up in slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada. After the 2013 round-ups began, Placitas resident Clea Hall began taking in herds on her land to save them from the slaughterhouse. She has since become a certified holistic wild horsemanship trainer and she and her mother now care for over two dozen horses. “Our lives have been permanently changed because we opened our hearts and our homes to take care of these horses that we love,” Hall tells SFR. Yet keeping them up is a significant struggle, and Hall is actively looking to re-home some. Her dream is to eventually start a community therapeutic horse training program.
TOP: Wild horses roam near homes in Placitas. BOTTOM: Clea Hall grooms two of the wild horses that she rescued after roundups in 2013.
At the Placitas Café, where Hall waitresses, walls are adorned with art donated by the community to raise money for the horses’ care. Hay has nearly tripled in cost over the last few years after a series of droughts resulted in feed shortages across the region. Customers come to the counter to ask Hall about the horses, and two men in leather biker jackets add $20 to their bill to “support the noble effort.” Hall grew up in Placitas. She says the horses have been here for as long as she can remember. During a drought in 2010, people began to leave feed in their yards for the parched and bony animals. The horses have since come to depend on humans, says Hall. They now spend their time lurking around neighborhoods or waiting close to the road, where at least five have been hit in the last year alone. With the easy access to food, Hall says the population quickly grows beyond what the land can naturally sustain. “As I see it, people are as much a part of the problem as the horses are,” says Hall. She advocates for the use of the equine birth control vaccine, PZP, for population management. Sandy Johnson of Placitas WILD agrees that “use of PZP is the only humane way we will be able to sustainably maintain a herd of free-roaming horses out on the range.” In January, Sandoval County announced a new contract with Mt. Taylor Mustangs to administer the drug to animals in the area. Johnson says that she still hopes to one day create a wild horse eco-park on the Buffalo Tract, but for now her main goal is to make sure all the horses at the Placitas WILD sanctuary find proper homes. Placitas WILD hosts a fundraiser to help with relocation at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino on on May 17 with a performance by Chevel Shepherd, farmington native and winner of The Voice, a competition reality show.

Winning poets take on sense of place in SFR’s annual contest
By Katherine Kubarski
hen Lauren Camp was presented with the stack of submissions to SFR’s 2019 poetry contest in our office foyer, her eyes grew wide. The breadth and depth of Santa Feans’ interest in poetry never fails to impress us; we received 156 submissions this year, and Camp read through each one, without authors’ names attached, with careful consideration. “It was challenging to narrow down to things that I cared deeply about,” Camp says, but she came up with a number of winners of which she is fond. “All of them, I believe, are strong voices, with sounds that are worth savoring in their writing, and powerful imagery that stayed with me.” Camp, a native of New York State, released a hefty book last summer: Turquoise Door came out of a 2013 residency at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, and while it does focus intensely on Luhan (an early-20th century patroness of the arts in New Mexico), it also considers New Mexico as a personality. Camp’s connection to her adopted home is strong, and it came through in her chosen poems’ sense of place. “I think I’m especially drawn to poetry and to writing in general that is about here; that is about a place that I am very devoted to and very intrigued by,” Camp says of the winners. “I didn’t pick based on that, but I noticed it when I came back and looked at the three I had picked. They’re all about here, in a way; about the West or the Southwest.” The poems also greatly express melancholy, if not outright sadness. The trope of the tortured poet is a humorous stereotype,

and Camp says she’s not particularly drawn to melancholic work, yet there’s something to a pervasive sadness—especially now. “It’s true that poetry often is about grief, love, loss, and I think that factors in to these poems,” she tells SFR. “Maybe it’s the situation we find ourselves in in the world. I woke up this morning to the news of the New Zealand mosque, and maybe it’s that we keep on getting battered by difficult subjects. Not that that shows up in these poems, but maybe it just surrounds us, as poets.” So thank you, Santa Fe, for appreciating poetry so much, and for always making our writing contests fun.

Aubade as it Begins to Snow By Margaret Wack
The language of the sick is one of gasps and whispers, madness halved and muted, put on like a velvet skin above the crimson nakedness of blood. It is only human, when the holy cold comes licking full of flame tongue and false promise to want to pare the bone from muscle like a butcher, press the flesh against the surface of the world and scratch the skin like silver foil—it is only natural to dream of death in the long low months like a slow snarl in the throat’s hollow saying please, please—eros the dissolver of the flesh come back again to haunt you in the body of a writhing animal, all rabbit skinned and weak kneed and hungry for blood.

The crew gathers. Dark pants, black kneepads. Gray hoodies are pulled up, caps brim-backwards. The guys toss coffee cups and close the phones.
The drama’s at its height. Foreman Ruben and red-gloved Marco, handlers of the fire-dragon, put blowtorch to bitumen, then stomp it while it’s hot.
Boots rise in front of my kitchen window, mounting the red extension-ladder rung by rung and, like balloons, disappear on high.
They generate an asphalt spell to keep sun and snow away from me, my fireplace and all I treasure.
I hear orders barked between men whose faces I can no longer see. Shovels overhead batter at the gravel, as if beating out a fire.
The odor of tar pervades the space. I love the ritual, and I begin to love the roof that covers me.
I’m at my desk when part of the ceiling caves in and clouds cross the hole. Debris and Spanish curses filter through the gap and settle on the mantelpiece. How little thought I’ve given to the roof ! It’s been a gaping absence in my count of blessings, this layer that marks my rooms off from sky.

The Longest Journey
Eyes wide open, Wings folded close. To leave her there would be to leave her For the dog to find.
By Shelley Winship
By Elizabeth Selig The dove startled As I strode through the trees Into the courtyard Slamming Into the big window Crashing to the ground Wings ragged, disoriented, distressed She and I.
The longest journey is to the center of your own heart
Best to just leave her Make sure the dog is elsewhere Give her a chance to catch her bearings Fly away.
Elizabeth Selig is a poet. And a reader, and a songwriter, and a ne’er do well, and a mindful walker, and a surfer and, most importantly, a mother. She lives in Hawaii.
Later When the obituary for my mother is done and delivered When the light on the hills Is blood red to the east I chase a squirrel away from the bird feeder And see her The mourning dove Lying still on the ground.
I walk with her To the river Past the meadow Where the young g rey horse The color of a mourning dove Still new to his maleness, Is running And tossing his head. Past the tipped-over road sign Saying, “Road Closed” To the one-lane bridge Where someone had a close call. Startled by something Thumbs and thoughts texting Or more likely, just stoned— They went off course Hitting the flimsy metal guardrail Yet somehow, miraculously Failing To fall in the river. Shaken, stunned, They managed To pull back, drive away, and vow To be more careful next time. The guardrail is beyond salvage Certainly, not able to stop the dove As she flies one last time Away from the dog Away from the window Away from my cupped hands Toward the water’s swift surface.

Arroyo by Dana Lundell
What A small child’s bed frame. A frayed, ivory mattress cover reaching up into the hot, August wind for the red, cracked plastic sled enjoyed briefly and abandoned last March at the end of a surprise snow day in the high desert.
And As a green, plastic straw bent over like a teenager in sorrow, struck by the force of mid-life gravity and cut loose from certainty to fly around like a paper streamer caught in the ditch, I lost her. What A feeling I would always be loved. like New Mexico wind, a daily friend. but
I In this dry arroyo, wandering alone lost as a crinkled-up candy wrapper that once held mango sweets from Mexico— enjoyed passionately some afternoon by a small kid in a Lobos jersey and then tossed away just like that to the striped lagartija sunning on dry rocks. Lost An old rotary dial phone buzzing with fresh gossip, tossed aside one day for new sources of insanity. A direct line to abuela, tia, a kind friend or sibling, or maybe—Mom— to pick up the phone and listen to me sniffle at 3:00 am about a boyfriend or car repair bill when graduate school could not pay for new tires.
Bright Angel Creek Memorial By Sam Moorman
I Never saw it coming.
A year after she died I hiked down Grand Canyon to Bright Angel Creek and there Veered off trail and stripped to lie white on gray stone skin warmed by solar winds and there Careless butterflies flew by and lizards pushed pushups while Cold water tumbling over creek stones mumbled bye bye
Found Of all things lost and tossed to the side, why? Somewhere in this arroyo, Me.

Back to the Future Amanda Lechner’s Future Perfect Tense examines what has been and may be BY JULIA GOLDBERG @votergirl
“I’m here tonight to tell you: We are out of time. I wish that none of this was true. I grieved in the field and I grieve every time I talk about what’s happening to the planet now. But here we are together at this time in history, and we’re going to get to go through this together, like it or not.” I wasn’t expecting good news at the Lannan Foundation March 13 talk by Truthout.org journalist Dahr Jamail, author of the recent book, The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption. But I was taken aback, no doubt naively, by the hope-free certainty he expressed about the future. Jamail’s work threads his firsthand observation of climate disruption as a mountain guide on Denali in Alaska with the ever-mounting scientific evidence
about the impact such human-caused climate disruption is having and will continue to have for the earth and its inhabitants. In a recent report for his Climate Disruption Dispatch series for Truthout, Jamail runs through some of these reports and their findings, “radical disruptions to food and water supplies for upwards of 1.5 billion people, in addition to a mass migration crisis” among them. I was thinking of Jamail’s talk as I entered Axle Contemporary two days later for the mobile gallery’s latest exhibit. Amanda Lechner’s Future Perfect Tense transformed the stepvan’s interior into what was described as an “abstracted cyclorama.” More specifically, the artist has covered the entire space, top to bottom, with an ink-on-paper painting that examines various intersections of images and ideas related to climate disruption, and the concomitant questions these raise about the future. The show’s title, a grammatical nod to the putative nature of the future, encapsulates both its inevitability and mystery. I found myself drawn to one back wall where a textured image of the planet topped two handwritten signs, one reading “Motion/Stillness,” the other “Sitting in Discomfort and Being Okay,” evoking the sense that I had entered the private sanctum of another’s thoughts in a specific moment in time, caught trying to work out an impenetrable proposition. Lechner, a Santa Fe native now living in Indiana where she is a visiting assistant professor if drawing and painting at Indiana University at Bloomington, tells me that while to some degree the work

Amanda Lechner’s Future Perfect Tense explores ideas and questions related to science and climate disruption.
“feels like stepping into my mind space,” it also is intended more broadly to evoke the sense of “stepping into a series of thoughts.” Those thoughts run the gamut and include Lechner’s preoccupation with “deep time” and its manifestation in geology and zoology. The work includes images of plants and animals “that are living fossils that have existed relatively unchanged for hundreds of millions

of years in some cases.” Lechner pairs those images with some that relate to volcanology research (this is the study of volcanoes, not Vulcans, although Lechner did mention Star Trek and I did grok her references) and its relation to infrasound (low-frequency sound undetectable to the human ear), and “how that ties into the predictions of the eruptions of volcanoes.” Both science and science fiction frequently inform Lechner’s work. While working on the Axle piece, she was reading NK Jemisin’s The Fifth Season, a Hugo Award-winning trilogy that explores, as the title indicates, the fifth season: a time of world-ending climate change. Science fiction and speculative fiction have long been, of course, fertile space to consider the consequences of the past and present on the unknown future. Titling her show Future Perfect Tense, Lechner says she is probing “the things that will have happened in the future; that can mean the things that are happening now, the things that happened to us in the past, or the things that are our future but are the future people’s past.” As for a viewpoint, Lechner says she is not “a particularly cynical person,” and perhaps the show reflects her vacillation between optimism and pessimism. “I’m a hopeful person,” she says, “but I also see the darkness and, in some ways, can embrace that darkness, because maybe it’s only where we can see it that we can fight against it or push away from it. I don’t want it to feel like it’s all about doom, but there is certainly some, a little bit of that. It’s that paradox of, ‘We’re in trouble,’ but maybe we can find a way out of it.” Personally, I’ll take maybe over too late.

OH DANG, THAT’S SEXY Often, throwback jams feel like a forced nostalgia grab meant to manipulate us into feeling the illusion of feelings. This is gross, but every so often, such tunes are so damn good, so damn sincere, so damn sexy that we realize it’s not about anything but the love of music and appreciation for enduring styles. Enter Indiana’s Durand Jones and the Indications, a soulful revival blend of Motown smoothness, shiny guitars and horns and the kind of vocals that owned your heart long before you even realized. Yeah, Jones and company are just that good. Look up their KEXP performance from April of last year if you don’t believe us. Just try not to fall in love. It might not be possible. (ADV)

EVENT SAT/23 THE FUTURE IS SOON We at SFR obviously love local artist Nico Salazar, and we think you should, too. We’d also point out that not only can you buy original Salazar works and prints at galleries like KEEP Contemporary, but that a vast majority of his designs are available in wearable form. Salazar kicks off his 2019 collection this week with a party at Meow Wolf (where he also has a permanent installation). He’ll unveil all his newest creations influenced by street art, manga, ’90s culture and beyond. They’re the kinda duds worn by superstar members of Migos, those lucky enough to have picked up a tee from SFR’s Best of Santa Fe 2017 party or even just in-the-know fashion fans looking to make a statement. That statement, by the way? It’s “I’m cool.” We think it’s always great when a hometown artist does good—let’s show Salazar some love.

FILM TUE/26 MOST DANGEROUS GAME Writer George RR Martin is a bit of a celeb, and part of that is due to how he did that thing we all say we’d do if we suddenly had a bunch of money: He invested in cool things for his community. Take, for example, the Jean Cocteau Cinema, a once-dead theater, where eager Game of Thrones fans can catch up (or just rewatch for the millionth time) all of the show’s seventh season as we head into the eighth this April. These weekly screenings feature two episodes per night, are first-come first-served, free, and you should be civil about the whole thing. Regardless, we can’t think of a better way to catch up with your buds like Jon Snow, Dany, Tyrion, Arya, Fonzie, Potsie, Li’l Abner and all those other zany fantasy champs from Westeros and beyond. There’s a bar there, too. (ADV) Game of Thrones Season Seven Screenings: 6:30 pm Tuesday March 26. Through April 9. Free. Jean Cocteau Cinema, 418 Montezuma Ave., 466-5528.
Put Up That Wall Alas de Agua’s mural mission The Museum of International Folk Art’s curator of Latin American and Caribbean Collections Amy Groleau says that SFR’s cover story about Santa Fe arts collective Alas de Agua from last May was what clued her into the growing group’s style and mission (“Collective Unconquered,” May 8, 2018). When she brought Peruvian screen printing collective Amapolay to Santa Fe for the exhibit Crafting Memory earlier this year, our local heroes were her first choice for an artistic connection. Groleau thus commissioned Israel Francisco Haros Lopez and his Alas de Agua compatriots John Paul Granillo and Juan Lira for a new original mural just outside the museum’s Gallery of Conscience. “The idea is that it would be a work in progress,” Groleau says. “We like to emphasize process and flexibility in [the Gallery of Conscience], so that left it open to them to work on it as they wanted—I think of it as a living thing.” Lopez, Granillo and Lira have been working on the mural since December, but this weekend they finally unveil the completed piece and appear for an informal discussion on its making and meaning. A massive accomplishment of paint on tyvek (rather
than the actual wall, which allows the museum to keep the piece when it comes down), “Build Those Walls, We Come From the Stars” represents Alas de Agua’s core philosophies alongside Amapolay’s, while commenting on the current state of border and art politics as seen from a group based in the Southwest. Both Alas de Agua and Amapolay are represented through overt and subtextual imagery. It’s about connection, resistance, empowerment and the messaging power of art. “My auntie always told me, ‘Without art, there is no movement,’” Lopez tells SFR. “A lot of times, we think about protest, about marches, about the movement—and the art takes a backseat. But without those images and iconography, there is nothing that really changes the consciousness. The beauty of a mural is that you’re side by side. There’s no way you’re not going to engage in conversation. You have to work together, you have to talk to each other.” (Alex De Vore) “BUILD THOSE WALLS, WE COME FROM THE STARS” UNVEILING 2 pm Sunday March 24. Free with museum admission, which is $6-$12.

The New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus celebrates the life of an American hero with I Am Harvey Milk
New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus Artisitc Director Aaron Howe conducts, too. What a guy!
BY LUKE HENLEY a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
artin Luther King Jr. once said “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,” as he paraphrased the 19th-century abolitionist Theodore Parker. It’s optimistic, if challenged by countless acts of evil throughout our nation’s history—even in the wake of sudden tragedies, such as King’s assassination in 1968, there is often an echo of justice that can hopefully sound louder than its violent catalysts. Another civil rights hero taken from us too soon was San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who is memorialized and celebrated in Broadway songwriter Andrew Lippa’s oratorio I Am Harvey Milk, scheduled to be performed by the New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus this week. Lippa’s commemoration of Milk’s life and death is not focused on tragedy, though that is a part of the story. Rather, he presents an abstracted expression of Milk’s spirit, taking the audience through imagined scenarios such as Milk’s childhood and first workday after taking office as the United States’ first openly gay politician. The oratorio format presents the material as halfway between choral performance and traditional theater. There are no sets, and the chorus stands behind the vocal leads as they
perform contextual narrative pieces. Bill Brooks plays Milk, with opera vet Ingela Onstad playing a motherly guiding muse alongside him. Twelve-year-old Allen Dominguez sings the pieces that imagine Milk’s childhood. The music clearly comes from Lippa’s experience as a Broadway songwriter, emphasizing genre and tone variety but delivered with theatrical gravitas. Perhaps the showstopper, “Tired of the Silence,” uses recorded snippets of Milk’s public speeches in a song that calls for members of the LGBTQ+ community not to live in secrecy, but to live out and proud. NMGMC Artistic Director Aaron Howe says the message of I Am Harvey Milk is celebratory, describing Milk almost like a showman of his time. “[Milk] finally found his calling when he started doing politics,” Howe tells SFR. “It was almost, for him, like putting on a show. He really was a galvanizing force to bring the LGBT people out of the shadows.” While the tragedy of Milk’s assassination is unavoidable, Howe says the show conveys an overall positive experience, citing Milk’s activism as being focused not just on LGBTQ+ rights, but
Harvey Milk really was for everybody. For him, it was very important that he lift all people up. -Aaron Howe, NMGMC artistic director
on human rights. “Harvey Milk really was for everybody,” says Howe. “For him, it was very important that he lift all people up.” Other pieces in the show do touch on the ugly truths of the country’s attitude toward queer folks, and also people of color, such as “Sticks and Stones.” Another piece, “I Am the Bullet,” frankly
addresses how Milk was killed for who he was. While it’s important not to erase these pieces of history, it is refreshing for a show about such an historic icon not to simply portray him as a martyr, but a complete human being, flaws and all. According to Howe, the song that perhaps best captures Milk’s spirit is titled “Leap.” Originally written by Lippa for the Broadway adaptation of the Tim Burton film Big Fish, the song was cut from that production. Here, it fits with the other songs in I Am Harvey Milk with a message to leap before you look. “Instead of being careful about it, just jump in and do it,” Howe concludes. “That really captures the spirit of Harvey Milk. It is overall a celebration and an admonition to not be afraid of who you are—we’re here, and we have an important thing to say to society; we’re an important part of society.” NEW MEXICO GAY MEN’S CHORUS: I AM HARVEY MILK 7:30 pm Thursday March 21. $20-$45.

COURTESY CHRIS DIESTLER
Some know Chris Diestler (aka The Mighty D) as a comic book guy. To others, he’s Uncle Jesse from Hutton Broadcasting’s country station, or the mind behind radio station KBAC’s show Toast and Jam. However you know him, he’s been a mainstay at Hutton and its stations since ... forever. But now he’s also KBAC’s director of programming, a job he took over after longtime beloved radio genius Ira Gordon retired earlier this year. We’re Diestler fans, so we called him up. (Alex De Vore)
What brought you to the radio game? Originally, I moved into the dorms the first day of college [at Washington State University] and realized there was a campus radio station, and I thought that sounded like fun. And I ran over that day or the next day and said, ‘Sign me up, I’ll work for free!’ And they said ‘Good, ‘cause everyone works for free!’ I wasn’t in school for broadcasting specifically, but they had an excellent broadcasting program, and I spent all my time doing that as an extra curricular. I probably changed my major, like, five times; graduated with a fine art degree and a double minor in broadcasting and drama.
PUBLIC LECTURE Nicolasa Chavez: “The History of Dance and Flamenco in New Mexico”
What would you say is the value of community radio? There are a lot of things that community radio does that are now doable on the internet and people’s phones, but sometimes people just don’t wanna deal with that while they’re driving, so it becomes something they can tune into to hear what’s going on. And sure, there are other ways they can find that out, but radio has this weird immediacy to it. People will sometimes flip out like, ‘Ohmygod! there’s a band coming in September and I need to get tickets now!’ because they heard it on the radio, whereas when they come across it online they maybe don’t. In this day and age when we have all the information we want at our fingertips, but we rarely try to call it up. The thing I love about KBAC is that it’s kind of the radio format without a format. It’s almost freeform, like the old days of radio.
An entertaining performance and lecture detailing the artistry and legacy of dance in New Mexico and its roots in Spain. Tuesday, March 26, 6:00 pm; doors open at 5:15 St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art, 107 West Palace Ave., Santa Fe Admission: $10 at the door; free for Members and Volunteers of El Rancho de las Golondrinas and the New Mexico Museum of Art.
OK then, big boss—what’s in the future for KBAC then? I don’t know. I didn’t think I would [advance]. … I thought I’d reached the top of the ladder over here, but it turns out I was wrong. I’ve been doing it for 34 years now, and I’ve always enjoyed it. As long as I get to play some good records and turn people on to information they can use, I feel like I’ve done a good job for the day. It’s kind of like being the town crier—you’re standing there clanging a bell shouting ‘Hear ye! Hear ye!’

KEEP Contemporary’s Jared Antonio-Justo Trujillo on the gallery’s present and future, and his own artistic pursuits
LEFT: Jared AntonioJusto Trujillo didn’t title this piece, but we love an astronaut. RIGHT: The artist/gallerist/curator himself.
BY ALEX DE V0RE a l e x @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
was running two galleries and doing 24 shows a year at the Jean Cocteau [Cinema] and KEEP,” Jared Antonio-Justo Trujillo explains. We’re sitting inside his space, KEEP Contemporary at Lincoln Avenue and Marcy Street, on a recent gray afternoon, and he seems tired—but good-tired. The kind of tired that comes from realizing you don’t have to do 24 shows a year anymore because your gallery has been packed for every opening since day one. Trujillo still curates at the Cocteau, but KEEP is his main focus these days, and he’s upped the exhibit schedule in recent months due to community and artist feedback. Things are undoubtedly going well. His business partner Katy O’Sullivan busies herself nearby as Trujillo explains his past is mostly off-limits. He’s more interested in the present. The future, he says, is not a major concern. This feels wise, and Trujillo does seem to have grown as a curator and gallerist since he originally opened KEEP on San Francis-
co Street in December of 2016. The cluttered feel of too-many-artists remains in the new space (“I can’t help myself,” Trujillo says, “I’ve gotta work on that”). But even with pieces spilling onto the floor and nearly into one another, it’s hard to ignore that the vast majority are quite good or—at the very least—things you won’t find elsewhere. You’ll see Farmington artist Rosemary Meza-DesPlas’ pieces, which experiment with hair sewn into paper, alongside Santa Fe-based (and SFR favorite) Sienna Luna’s emotional and mathematical hybrid illustration-paintings; Christian Ristow— perhaps best known for the massive robot in the Meow Wolf parking lot—shows mixed-media statuary (a torso growing seamlessly from birch) nearby Dylan Pommer’s black and greyscale resin sculpture reminiscent of Fleischer Studios characters. Elsewhere you’ll find work from Albuquerque’s Leo Gonzales, and KEEP has shown or continues to show work from New York tattooer Zach Scheinbaum, locals Katy Kidd, Nico Salazar and Wonky, plus Instagram-famous creators, outsider weirdos, co-owner O’Sullivan and … the
list goes on. It’s impressive particularly in its emphasis on current and former locals who eschew tired landscape-and-clouds pieces for work inspired by tattoo, skate culture, anime, lowriders et al. “You’ve got to involve the locals—and I own the place, so I can do whatever I want,” Trujillo says with a laugh. “But I think KEEP has a great thing going by showcasing work most galleries won’t.” This isn’t just a story about KEEP’s rise as a self-described community gallery, or its apparent need to tone down the number of pieces on the walls—it’s meant to highlight Trujillo’s own return to creation. After the move to Lincoln Avenue late last year, and at the urging of O’Sullivan, he’s beginning to explore and show his own work more often, pursuits that had taken a bit of a backseat while he got the gallery off the ground. Trujillo unveils some of these new works this Saturday in Where There is Darkness, You Are the Light, a small but intriguing spate of pieces that reside someplace between graffiti-esque street art and sign-making. Trujillo designs the pieces on paper then has them fabricated and cut in

powder-coated metal and vinyl with jetpowered water. In these pieces, which he calls “symbiosis,” certain distortedthough-recognizable elements, such as Zia symbol iconography or tribal tattooesque design, peek out. LED lights are affixed to their flip sides, which cast shadows and create a three-dimensional effect. Some even create the illusion of movement with the light cast against the wall at an angle. Some have already sold. Trujillo says he’s designed them as far back as he can recall but that the fabrication method is new. He developed the technique while working as a sign-maker; it is indeed the type of thing you might not see anyplace else, and works well alongside the broader themes of the gallery. “Judging from what people say when they come in, it’s refreshing to have something so different,” Trujillo says. “There are tons of galleries downtown. They’re all kind of the same thing. And don’t get me wrong—I love Santa Fe, the culture, the regional art, the Native art; it’s here for a reason. But to me, this, what we’re doing? This is not new. It’s everywhere: LA, New York, Vancouver. This is why [people] love Pop Gallery or Stranger Factory [in Albuquerque]; it’s the most exciting and honest work out there.” And, he says, there’s lots more to come, which can only mean good things for the subversion of the accepted downtown artscape, as well as for lesser-known artists currently toiling to change the script. “As a kid growing up in Santa Fe, I would have never dreamt of being where I am now,” Trujillo adds. “What made Santa Fe beautiful? Creativity did. And I guess what I’m trying to say is that everything about KEEP is not normal. We’re unorthodox.” JARED ANTONIO-JUSTO TRUJILLO: WHERE THERE IS DARKNESS, YOU ARE THE LIGHT 5 pm Saturday March 23. Free. KEEP Contemporary, 142 Lincoln Ave., 307-9824

SFRE PORTE R .CO M /A RTS /ACTI N G O UT
ACTING OUT Working for Peanuts or anyone who’s ever loved an animal; for anyone who’s ever taken care of something simultaneously helpless and challenging, if not deadly; for anyone who’s ever listened to a guinea pig wheeping in its cage and wondered what the hell it thinks it’s saying (because it seems awfully passionate); we have a play for you. Loosely based on the true story of a pet chimpanzee named Travis who injured a Connecticut woman nearly fatally in 2009, Trevor is playwright Nick Jones’ incredibly smart script, here placed in capable hands. Currently onstage at the Santa Fe Playhouse, this production doesn’t have a weak link. That’s quite a feat for a complex work that could easily stymie a small theater community. Actress Marguerite Louise Scott is Sandra, a doting if eccentric widow whose country home features scribbles on the walls, a large cage in the yard and a roving adolescent chimp. Trevor, played by Evan Dalzell, speaks in perfectly good— and perhaps even haughty—English. He tells Sandra how he wants to get a job and is discouraged by his inability to get back into acting (he once starred in a pilot with Morgan Fairchild, after all), and laments discrimination against chimpanzees in the workplace. Okay, that makes it sound trite and precious. It’s not. Especially when we realize, when Sandra begins baby-talking Trevor and using rudimentary sign language to communicate, that she has no idea what he’s saying. To her, all he’s doing is making nonsense noise. Vice versa, Trevor doesn’t understand Sandra except for select words or objects (Hollywood, coffee, wine, Morgan Fairchild), and watching them try to talk is both funny and frustrating in turn. For example, when Trevor says eloquently that he’d like to send emails
to his business contacts and get in touch with the Screen Actors Guild about his desire to get back into show business, Sandra smiles and coos sweetly: “Oh, you wanna say hellooooo to your friends on the compuuuuter?” Simultaneously, though, Sandra’s anthropomorphizing of her pet actually contains kernels of truth—a particularly funny device for anyone who’s had to deal with pet owners in service settings. When apologizing for Trevor’s increasingly aggressive behavior, she pleads: “He’s frustrated! What he needs is a creative outlet!” Of course, without Trevor’s insight, this CARRIE McCARTHY
BY C H A R LOT T E J U S I N S K I c o p y e d i t o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
would sound ridiculous. But with his insight, we know it is perhaps actually true. Also an aid in the show’s dramatic impact, rather than the childishness that could be inherent in a talking-animal trope, is Dalzell’s subtle characterization as a chimp. Wearing overalls and a T-shirt, he could still pass for a human character. But his bowed legs, bare feet, doing everything with his knuckles and occasional flying leaps across the stage (seriously, they’re shocking in their athleticism) keep him in the realm of apedom. Oliver, another chimp-actor that occasionally advises Trevor in dreams or hallucinations (played by RJ Henkel, who comically wears spats on his bare feet) employs similar characterization to nice effect. This kind of script is incredibly difficult to perform, and these actors deserve commendation for delivering it without any perceptible hiccups. When two characters are “conversing” with lines that have absolutely no relation to each other, it takes just about forever to remember what comes next (if you ever do). But they pull it off, with virtually no dead air and a swift pace that evoked laughter and exasperated sighs alike in the audience. A cast of characters moves in and out in side-plots around Sandra and Trevor, including flashbacks and fantasies featuring Fairchild herself (a very funny Isabel Madley) and a production assistant (Evan Galpert), a terrified neighbor who fears for her baby’s safety (Veronica Everett) and
a cop in charge of laying down some kind of law (Stephen Rommel). While each are strong, none of the side characters are a caricature, and the solid ensemble front presented by this cast serves the knotted story well. This show is a particular triumph for Scott. A mainstay in the Santa Fe theater scene, particularly at the Santa Fe Playhouse, Scott is excellent at portraying goofy, comedic characters. She has done so many a time and to great success on this stage, and Trevor includes tons of laugh-out-loud moments. However, any time heretofore that Scott has been cast as a straight or less-wonky character, she’s faltered—not based on her ability, in my estimation, but rather due to her tendency toward self-deprecation. She doesn’t give her own natural grace enough credit. But here, at last, Scott has taken charge of her ability to break our hearts. Her heartfelt dialogues with her beloved charge brought me to tears. We feel her breathlessness as she tries desperately to control him—but he can’t possibly understand. And as he tries in vain to communicate with her, in Dalzell’s often tender performance, we forgive Trevor’s transgressions, though we know there’s really only one way this is going to end up. Director Monique Lacoste had her work cut out for her with this one. The sheer logistics of casting an ape, not to mention finding actors who can hold the duality of howling laughter and wrenching poignancy, was likely no easy feat. I imagine that weeks of table work went into the nuance and motivation of characters that can change on a dime. Coincidentally, on the Sunday of opening weekend, Lacoste shared a story on Facebook that told a tale almost tailor-made for those considering Trevor: In 2010, a bunch of monkeys in Japan managed to escape a research center by using trees to catapult themselves over an electric fence. It’s a story perhaps scary in its implications about the primates’ problem-solving intelligence and desire for autonomy. But the monkeys were easily lured back into the facility with peanuts. How a creature can be so complex and simultaneously so simple applies to everyone here: to Trevor, of course, both potentially violent and enamored of his stuffed bunny—but also to the humans, whose love of each other, rules, success or their kin dictates their actions, sometimes to disastrous ends. TREVOR
Marguerite Louise Scott hits her stride as Sandra, caring for her beloved chimpanzee Trevor. Evan Dalzell, who plays the titular ape, creates an animal character without being cartoonish.

oes anyone want to feed me? I went to Radish & Rye‘s new location (505 Cerrillos Road, 930-5325) only to find it closed for a private event, with no notification on its website or social media. Hungry in Tesuque, Google said El Nido (1577 Bishops Lodge Road, 954-1272) was open on a Monday evening. It wasn’t. Craving seafood, a group of us planned to meet at the Santa Fe location of Crackin’ Crab.. It’s front and center on the Crackin’ Crab website, yet apparently went out of business months ago (RIP). In all my years of writing about dining out, this has never happened. Is it just me? Does this happen to other people? Is the universe telling me to go on a diet? Is it the altitude? Is Mercury in retrograde? Please let it be a temporary astrological alignment because, according to the Tourism Santa Fe 2015 visitor report, the top attraction in our city is dining out. Imagine the disappointment of someone spending time planning a visit to Santa Fe around its beautiful eats, only to find the places they so carefully chose aren’t open when, or where, they say they are. This goes
A plea to the restaurant marketers of Santa Fe
double for locals who, left hanging once, may not choose to return. I get that it’s hard enough just running a restaurant, much less dealing with all the marketing channels that have popped up over the years: Facebook, Instagram, Google business, websites, menu apps, online reservation systems and the like. Restaurants are in the business of feeding people, after all. But, to feed people, a restaurant needs to attract them. A fivestar Google business rating, pretty pic-
a lifestyle marketing consultant, my most repeated refrain was, “Why do you want to do it, who is your audience, is someone tasked with regular maintenance and do they have the skills for it?” For a business that does not have good answers to such questions, the best course of action might be not doing anything until it does. “Just because it’s there” doesn’t work for customers. Far better is to do it right in one place, then decide if the good work can be replicated and maintained elsewhere. Start with a website that is updated regularly and answers every question a potential customer may have. If that can be managed, then perhaps consider claiming a Google business listing. Google searches and map listings are likely among the top referrers to a business and take just minutes to set up and proactively manage. Once the basics are tackled, only then consider expanding to, and committing to, other avenues of communication. What good is a pretty picture of a dish on Facebook if someone shows up to eat it and finds the door is locked? Santa Fe has that “mañana” thing, but there’s no time like the present for restaurants (indeed, any service businesses) to take care of the business of their customers. Ponder getting rid of tools that aren’t really being used, or commit to using them properly. Spend a few minutes each week to ensure the information being put out there is up to date. Show customers you care enough to make sure you aren’t accidentally leaving them out in the cold. These efforts will go a long way toward keeping mouths wagging about, and at, your restaurant. ANSON STEVENS-BOLLEN
Use it or Lose it
tures, reviews, updated menus and media pages can do the trick, but if a restaurant is going to make use of such tools, it’s important to do so properly. So I say either use them right, or lose them. For customers, a website with all of the correct information and no social media presence at all is more useful than a website and a Facebook page which contradict each other. It shouldn’t be up to diners to have to check an establishment’s website, Facebook and Google listing to try and discern which information is correct. Diners shouldn’t bear the brunt of an establishment’s inability to manage its own vitals. Restaurants show they care about their customers by making sure the information they put out there is as good as the food they serve. For any business, it’s a good idea to regularly take stock of the communication tools at its disposal. In a former life as

To Dust Review Mysteries of the corpus
BY JULIE ANN GRIMM e d i t o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
A new twist on the odd-couple trope brings Matthew Broderick and Géza Rhorig to the center of this exploration of grief. Rhorig’s sensitive take on recently widowed Hasidic cantor Schmuel collides with Broderick’s awkward underachieving professor-type in filmmaker Shawn Snyder’s To Dust, a drama centered on death that also achieves the rare feat of being funny in the right dose. Though the audience never sees her face, the absence of Schmuel’s late wife is a character in itself—his inability to quickly let her go and move on is what defines him. When consultation with the rabbi does not settle his trouble, Schmuel seeks other counsel, ultimately landing in Albert’s community college classroom. Albert (Broderick) is at first a reluctant partner in Schmuel’s quest to understand the division between his wife’s physical body and the freedom of her immortal soul.

AND TENDER; ABSURD HILARITY - SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF REQUIRED
As Schmuel tries to justify his orthodox beliefs with the earthly reality of decomposition, a series of unholy science experiments ensue, and the pair go on a bizarre journey. Broderick’s deadpan desire for distance is soon replaced by a kinship of sorts, and the characters unfold just enough to tug on the heartstrings. While there’s no doubt some stereotype about the sect of Judiasm is built in, the treatment of Schmuel’s faith and his traditions feels more reverent than exploitive. Schmuel’s sons (Leo Heller, Ready Player One, and Sammy Voit, The Americans) are splendid, attempting to solve their father’s adult problem while coming to terms with their childish ones. Toss in a critical cameo from Natalie Carter and
a bit of a melodramatic and kinda-sorta predictable twist in the end, and voila, existential crisis averted. Kinda-sorta. We appreciate the choice of sparse, deliberate dialog and poignant cinematography, and we’re relieved that there’s nothing too slapstick, allowing the natural funniness of humans being human to come through. While Albert ostensibly is helping Schmuel, they both seem to be unhinged enough to value a new friend and perhaps learn some things.

THE INVENTOR: OUT FOR BLOOD IN SILICON VALLEY
The newest documentary from HBO paints a chilling picture of Silicon Valley zealotry.
+ THE JOURNOS; THE COMPANY FOOTAGE
- THE STOCK FOOTAGE; PACING
When Silicon Valley med-tech startup Theranos promised it could conduct hundreds of consumer-ordered tests from a drop or two of finger-drawn capillary blood, often within a small, self-contained box device, big-name investors lined up and the all-too-powerful encircled CEO and founder Elizabeth Holmes. Holmes was young—a Stanford dropout with a great big idea. Billions were generated for a company cloaked in secrecy that promised far more than it could ever deliver. But as the misinformation grew and the apparent fraud mounted, Theranos doubled down on false data, ultimately bringing about its own demise amid a mountain of dangerous allegations and seeming insanity on the part of Holmes and her one-time COO, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani. Documentarian Alex Gibney brings us all the gory details in The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley, the newest HBO documentary. It’s a gripping tale that starts with hope, winds through schadenfreude and ultimately ends
up as a cautionary tale about the dangerous intersection of the American healthcare system, money and influence. We hate that it’s like this, but we strangely enjoy the ride. The Inventor predictably features numerous doctors, former employees and experts in candid interviews, but it’s the journalists throughout, from those who were duped by Holmes’ seemingly revolutionary ideas to those who recognized the grift and exposed it wholesale, who really bring the heat. With a nigh-unprecedented amount of footage from within the company—not to mention tech conferences, television appearances, photo shoots, etc.—Gibney deftly grasps and guides our emotions, of which there are many. We want to like Holmes, then we do like her, but we are eventually disgusted by her ego; or, as New Yorker contributor Ken Auletta, who wrote of Theranos, describes, her zeal. But mostly, we’re disappointed that this story is not uncommon in an America that lionizes the likes of Elizabeth Holmes and Steve Jobs while ignoring the facts in deference to charismatic businesspeople. Gibney does make bizarre choices now and then, from archival footage that just barely applies to offscreen narration or Holmes’ speeches to the glossing-over of a Theranos CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

SPOTLIGHT ON WOMEN HEROES - TOO MANY ’90S REFERENCES
Well, it only took about a million years, but Marvel has finally unleashed a standalone film with a woman lead, and anyone left who wants to whine about the woman-ness of it all is clearly destined for the wrong side of history. Captain Marvel is fantastic. We follow Vers (or Carol Danvers if you like; Brie Larson) as she is swept up in an interstellar war between the Kree and the Skrull, alien races locked in battle for who even knows how long. Vers fights for the Kree, but it’s mostly about having shown up on their planet six years back with no memory than it is about being one of them. She’s powerful but, we’re told by her mentor Yon-Rogg (Jude Law), too emotional to harness her singular powers effectively. Yawn, Yon. Yawn, bro. Hijinks ensue and ass-kickery commences, but when a seemingly simple mission goes awry and thus strands Vers on Earth alongside a young Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), alliances shift, the mystery unfolds and Vers spends a solid two hours being an absolute badass. Turns out emotions are part of that—who knew? Everyone. Anyway … Larson is pitch-perfect as the burgeoning superhero, all sly smiles and wise-cracking jokes that humanize her otherwise otherworldly powers without muting her flair. We instantly love her and side firmly with her no matter how the tide turns. The best scenes involve Larson and Jackson’s chemistry, however. You can practically feel the fun they’re having together, and whatever tech Marvel is using to make Jackson look 20 (or more) years younger is flawless. There are a few missteps, however, from being beaten within an inch of our lives with ’90s references (we get it, Marvel: Blockbuster and grunge and No Doubt were things then) to the studio’s insistence on cramming as many fan-service-y Easter eggs into the fray as possible. Still, by the time Vers realizes what’s really going on, she embraces her human side

+ ELBA PROVES PROMISING; THE SOUNDTRACK
- AMEEN IS OK; STRANGE NARRATION
Idris Elba’s directorial debut is bursting with good ideas and an understanding that future films from the Luther star might be worthwhile. But wooden performances and a run-of-themill gangster narrative hold Yardie, based on the 1992 Victor Headley novel, back from greatness. In 1970-something Kingston, Jamaica, young D (for Dennis; Antwayne Eccleston as the young version) watches as his brother uses reggae to usher in a tenuous peace between two prominent street gangs after a young girl is killed in the crossfire of a daytime shootout. All is well, briefly, but when Dennis’ brother is gunned down by another mysterious youth, he’s thrust into the world of violent gangland nonsense and drug-running himself, working for the notorious King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Cut to 10 years later, and Dennis (Aml Ameen) is sent to London to deliver cocaine to British crimelord-lite Rico (Snatch‘s Stephen Graham), but a series of confusing double- or triple- or quadruple-crosses enmeshed with some really boneheaded maneuvers sends our hero spiraling out of control and running from the only family he’s really known, while uncovering the truth behind his brother’s murder. Elba proves capable in the director’s seat, though Yardie stumbles to find any original footing within the gangster genre. D could have proven explosively interesting, but Ameen’s take on an overwhelmed and emotional kid in over his head feels irritatingly dimensionless. He has anger down pat, and there are moments where he reels us in, but he squanders any chance at nuance with shouting, leaving us without any particular emotional connection beyond his murdered brother and unsure of why we should be in his corner. Yardie does provide a smattering of breathless action-y scenes, and the soundtrack backdrop of Britain’s much-ballyhooed 1980s

GEORGE R.R MARTIN’S Yardie represents Idris Elba’s directorial debut. It’s a good start, but let’s see what he does next before we count any chickens. reggae, rocksteady and ska uprising makes for some electric feelings. But the film can’t seem to decide if it wants to be a crime drama or character study, which winds up diluting its chances at either. We’re more interested to see if Elba continues to sharpen his already distinctive directorial style. He’s off to a good start, he just needs some better players.

LEAVING NEVERLAND PARTS 1 & 2
+ EYE OPENING; THOROUGH - QUITE LONG; PERHAPS TOO PAINFUL FOR SOME
Content warning: This review contains disturbing information and language. After making waves and shocking audiences at Sundance, filmmaker Dan Reed’s explosive two-part, four-hour documentary Leaving Neverland finds its way to HBO, where it finally digs deep into allegations that pop superstar Michael Jackson molested several young boys throughout his career. For some, the film will be a painful sojourn through in-depth interviews with survivors of Jackson’s abuse; for others it will affirm what they’ve believed since charges were first levied against Jackson in 1993. Regardless of which camp you fall into, however, it’s certain that we can no longer ignore the testimony of those who’ve come forward, and it is no longer and option to defend Jackson in any way. The bulk of the interviews come from Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck, each of whom speak at length about their complicated relationships with Jackson. Each met the man by different means, and through a combination of celebrity obsession, missteps from parents and Jackson’s well-planned psychological manipulation, they were molested for years while on tour with Jackson, at his Neverland Ranch home and at so-called “hideaway” apartments. The hardest pill to swallow may be interviews with the parents who insist that, at the time, they felt it perfectly normal that Jackson invited children into his room and bed or, in one case, that they left their child alone with him for an entire week while they visited the Grand Canyon. Robson and Safechuck’s accounts are damning and detailed—and incredibly similar in terms of how the abuse played out. We believe them. This makes the first part of Neverland difficult to bear, as it is explicit. The second part isn’t much easier, however, and the personal toll it took on the young men—not to mention the survivor’s guilt they still harbor—becomes the real tragedy. As we know, both men refused to besmirch Jackson’s name for years, discrediting other survivors who were strong enough to come
forward and deepening the aftermath’s affect on their lives and families. Reed provides countless pieces of evidence in the form of photos, video, audio recordings and faxes sent from Jackson to Robson that start seemingly friendly, but devolve into obsessive and terrifying. We learn of houses bought and gifts obtained, of Jackson’s cold and cruel ability to teach children as young as 7 that sexual acts are just how people show love, regardless of age. And it is every bit as riveting as it is nauseating. This might dredge up uncomfortable feelings about how we regard celebrities, but as Robson points out at one point, people feel like they knew Jackson; he was a part of our lives as far back as we can remember. The resolution, as it were, is not satisfying. Jackson of course dodged prison and died before he was ever brought to justice. Still, Neverland does force us to ask big questions: Can we still enjoy the music knowing he was a monster? Why are we so quick to defend the famous on such charges? We believe Robson and Safechuck, but we still aren’t quite sure how to feel about it all. Not good, though—that’s for sure. Regardless, any Jackson defenders need to reassess, and anyone with the fortitude to watch Leaving Neverland should certainly do so. (ADV) NR, HBO, 240 min.

Although COOKIES ‘N CREAM would probably enjoy the company of a playful cat of similar age, we believe he would be quite happy to be the only pet in his new home.

TW [aka T-WRECKS], was taken to an emergency clinic, but she required more care and was transferred to F&F. TW is a very loving girl that enjoys playing with other cats. Her broken leg and the burn on the back of her neck has fully healed. Despite efforts to save her right eye, it was removed and we believe the vision in her left eye is limited to light and shadow. However, that doesn’t stop TW running around and playing energetically. AGE: born approx. 6/1/18.

You are absolutely unique, an unmatched treasure, a one-of-a-kind creation with your own special blend of qualities.

I also hope you’ll be inspired to become more active in spreading the word about the gifts that you have to offer the world. It’s high time to make sure that people know more of the beautiful truth about you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):”When you want happiness, what are you wanting?” asks aphorist Olivia Dresher. The repeat of an event that made you feel good in the past? A sweet adventure you’ve thought about but never actually experienced? Here’s a third possibility. Maybe happiness is a state you could feel no matter what your circumstances are; maybe you could learn how to relax into life exactly as it is, and feel glad about your destiny wherever it takes you. In my opinion, Leo, that third approach to happiness will be especially natural for you to foster in the coming weeks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):There are old traditions in many cultures that pay special attention to the first brick or stone that is laid in the earth to initiate the construction of a future building. It’s called a cornerstone or foundation stone. All further work to create the new structure refers back to this original building block, and depends on it. I’m pleased to inform you that now is a favorable phase to put your own metaphorical cornerstone in place, Virgo. You’re ready to begin erecting a structure or system that will serve you for years to come. Be sure you select the right place for it, as well as the best building materials.

Ages” to name that period because it brought many important developments and activities, such as improvements in farming techniques. So in some ways, “Lost Ages” might be a more apropos descriptor. Now let’s turn our attention to a metaphorically comparable phase of your own past, Capricorn: an era that’s a bit fuzzy in your memory; a phase about which your understanding is incomplete. I suspect that the coming weeks will be an excellent time to revisit that part of your life and see what new evidence and insights you can mine.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Why do some American libraries ban certain books, ensuring they’re unavailable to local readers? The reasons may be because they feature profanity or include references to sex, drug use, the occult, atheism, and unusual political viewpoints. Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis is one of the most frequently censored books. Others are Maya Angelou’s *I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings*, Beloved, by Toni Morrison, and The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini. In my astrological opinion, these are exactly the kinds of books you should especially seek out in the coming weeks. In fact, I suggest you commune with a variety of art and ideas and influences that are controversial, provocative, and intriguing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): At the age of 97, Piscean cartoonist Al Jaffee is still creating new material for the satirical Mad magazine, where he has worked since 1964. There was one 63-year stretch when his comic stylings appeared in all but one of Mad’s monthly issues. I nominate him to be your role model during the next four weeks. It’s a favorable time for you to access and express a high degree of tenacity, stamina, and consistency. Homework: What’s the thing you lost that should stay lost?
