GET IT TOGETHER, MVD I lost count of how many MVD trips I had to make to finally get a license renewed. I had a certified copy of my birth certificate, I had my original Social Security card (with the caveat on it that it wasn’t to be used for identification). What they didn’t accept: expired passport (even though the State Department says it is still valid for identification purposes); the rules say a document issued by a government agency, but they didn’t accept a voter identification card. They did accept a lease, although anyone can go to Office Depot and get a lease form and fill in anything they want. I had to switch my telco bill from my PO box (secure) to my street address (and back again). I understand the security issues, but there is a lot of nonsense and very little apparent leeway. Thanks for bringing the issue out in the open.

DESPICABLE THEM I did not see any evidence that this sting has reduced or hampered the overall influx of illegal drugs into this state or country for that matter. Arresting 103 individuals on drug possession seems to only impact the overburdened court system, penal institutions, and other enforcement related agencies in this state. I am genuinely pessimistic this course of action by the ATF was beneficial to anything but the numbers. Despicable at best.

Dashed Dreams Undocumented Santa Feans who came to the country as children fear their days in the US are numbered BY AARON CANTÚ a a r o n @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
hey take your blood pressure, manage your debts and serve food at your banquets. There are more than 750,000 undocumented people who have legal permission to work in the United States through the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a band-aid solution applied by President Obama in 2012 for working-age young immigrants who were illegally brought to the country as children. Now, hundreds of people who qualify for the DACA program in Santa Fe are among those at the mercy of President Trump’s decision whether to rescind the program at the behest of 11 state attorneys general, who have threatened to sue the federal government if it didn’t begin to phase out the program by Sept. 5. Ending DACA would make good on Trump’s campaign promise to “immediately terminate” the program. One Santa Fean who would be affected is Roxana Guillen, who works as a medical assistant at La Familia Medical Center. A significant portion of the clinic’s clientele is undocumented, and Guillen feels like her personal experience helps her connect with patients. Despite the risks that come with speaking out, she says she’s in a unique position to advocate for undocumented people. “I don’t know what exactly is going to happen, and I don’t know what position I will be put in in the near future, but I want to be the best person I can be for the community I’m serving,” Guillen tells SFR. “I feel like coming out with this; I can say I am undocumented, but I am helping my community as well. I have done nothing wrong and this is what I’m doing.” Guillen received her work permit six years ago, and has renewed it every two years since. It costs $500 just to apply. That’s a steep price for people who are often working to support not just them-
selves, but their family members as well. Still, the jump in income that comes with legal permission to work can have a major impact on a person’s quality of life. Hugo Medina, who works as the accounts receivable coordinator for Santa Fe University of Art and Design, juggled a full-time job at a fast food restaurant and other part-time jobs at local eateries in the evenings for over a decade, including weekends, to support himself and his family. “You get used to it,” he now says, adding that before DACA he was afraid to apply for better jobs because of his legal status. “It becomes your daily routine, you have to work and you have to pay rent and the bills.” Medina fears for his family’s future if DACA is terminated. Each person permitted to work under the program
has to submit tax forms and other application materials to the Department of Homeland Security, meaning that an agency now detaining people at a record pace could reference the addresses listed on a person’s DACA materials for easy prey. Medina takes comfort in the fact that there are 39 states whose attorneys general have not submitted letters urging the president against DACA, and New
Tell them about our parents’ situation, of other people who are dealing with legal status in this country. -Hugo Medina, DACA recipient
Mexico is one of them. He believes political leadership in these states should speak up. So too, he says, should the large institutions, like universities and corporations, that reap the benefits of undocumented people in labor, taxes, tuition and other material assets. “Tell congressmen and representatives, have them understand our situation,” he urges. “Tell them about our parents’ situation, of other people who are dealing with legal status in this country. We come to work and are successful and have a life.” For Hali Calzidillas, a DACA worker who is set to begin a paralegal fellowship at the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center in two weeks, it’s critical not just to advocate for immigrants who qualify for the program, but for all undocumented people in the country. “It’s not just about me having food on the table and a job,” she argues. “It’s about quality of life, access to legal help, access to affordable housing—all those things that make life equitable.” Recently, members of the Santa Fe Dreamers Project—a legal aid nonprofit named for the DREAM Act that would provide a path for permanent residency for the DACA-eligible population, should it ever pass in Congress—created 1,000 emergency “tool kits” primarily for teachers to distribute to students. They include a summary of DACA and the threats to it, ideas for how to raise awareness about the program, and materials for mailing letters to elected officials, including postcards featuring images of DACA recipients in Santa Fe. Allegra Love, an attorney and the director of the project, says the educational format of the tool kit is meant to spread awareness of the program fast. “We need more people engaged than have been engaged,” Love says. “And they need to be engaged quickly. There’s not a ton of time for educating. We need a massive public outcry.” Others are less optimistic. Ana Juarez, a server at the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado and a DACA recipient, is already preparing for the worst. “You can learn more things about Mexico, and what you can do if you ever get deported,” she says. “If there’s nothing we can do to change the president’s mind, we’ll have to prepare to have different lives.”

t’s been four years since the Santa Fe Association of Realtors polled city voters ahead of an election. And somewhere among the budget shortfalls, parks bond controversies and sugary-drink tax elections, since last time, voters seem to have lost their faith in city government. In 2013, 51 percent of likely city-election voters said Santa Fe was headed in the right direction, a 15-point gap over those who thought the city was on the wrong track. This year, that gap has narrowed to a single point: 45-44. “I would call it a conflicted community,” says Joe Goode, a pollster with American Strategies, the Washington, DC-based firm that conducted the survey for SFAR, which released the results on Tuesday. Santa Feans are far more optimistic about their city than they are about the state, the poll shows, but their optimism doesn’t necessarily run deep. While seven in 10 likely voters say they have either an “excellent” or “good” quality of life, twice as many chose “good.” And while a quarter of people think their life is excellent, just as many people think their quality of life is just fair. What’s more, their outlook varies depending on where they live, how much school they’ve had and their race. The survey results show different Santa Fes. Voters who live in City Council Districts 1 and 2 are far more likely to think the city is headed in the right direction. Those who live in Districts 3 and 4 are just as adamant that the city is on the
wrong track. Hispanics tend to be more pessimistic about the city’s direction, Anglos tend to be optimistic. Those who have completed college are more optimistic than those who haven’t. “It probably has more to do with economic status and how people are feeling economically pressured,” says Goode. The city isn’t entirely divided. There’s broad recognition that affordable housing is a major challenge. The development overlay district along St. Michael’s Drive remains a popular potential solution to that problem. Voters favor environmental protection over reduced regulation. And they have become more skeptical about the ability of the city to deliver basic services. As far as who gets the blame for that, the mayor fares better than the City Council. “The City Council gets just kind of lukewarm scores on everything,” Goode explains. Regardless of the issue—reducing crime, handling the budget, maintaining infrastructure—at least 68 percent of voters felt the council did a poor or just fair job of handling it. Voters echoed that sentiment when it came time to rate the job of elected officials. The City Council’s job rating was 38 percent positive, 59 percent negative. Mayor Javier Gonzales, who has yet to declare a decision about a run for a second term in the March 2018 election, sported a 51 percent job rating compared to the 48 percent of voters who had a negative impression of the job he’s done. Pollsters surveyed 400 likely voters. Cell and internet-based phones made up more than half the respondents.

Thinkin’ of a Master Plan Santa Fe maps the future of its upstart airport and tries to ensure a new terminal is paid in full
B Y M AT T G R U B S @mattgrubs
tand on the tarmac outside the Santa Fe Municipal Airport’s terminal and you could be forgiven for scoffing at the notion that there’s a space problem here. Mountains rise in the distance. The wind blows unfettered. There’s nary a tree in sight and you can see for miles. Stand outside the front of the terminal—or even just inside the doors—and you start to understand why the city is anxious for expansion. There’s not much room to maneuver if one of the handful of commercial flights is leaving in next couple hours. It’s quaint, but cramped. “We need a new terminal,” airport director Cameron Humphres tells SFR bluntly. “That’s fairly obvious in terms of the size of the terminal, its location and that sort of thing.” While the current terminal is too small inside, though, the airport also has a space problem on the outside, and as a host of city committees consider approving the airport’s master plan in the coming weeks, the two challenges go hand in hand. The airport master plan doesn’t tackle the cost of building a new terminal, only the concept of and timing for it. Instead, the plan charts a course for maintenance, operations and future development. In large part, that’s because a new terminal could cost almost $40 million, and it’s not certain there’s the political will to commit that kind of cash.
“That would be the equivalent of two years of the city’s current capital-project spending,” says Renee Martinez, deputy city manager. The potential airport investment needs a frank discussion about what it would mean for spending on things like roads, parks, police, fire and broadband. “It’s a hard decision about priorities,” she says. “A city has to have good, robust air service if it’s going to create jobs and if it’s going to grow,” says Stuart Kirk, executive director of the Northern New Mexico Air Alliance, a public-private partnership designed to bring more direct flights to Santa Fe. Kirk says the airport’s big sell is its convenience. While another direct flight to someplace like Los Angeles, Chicago or Salt Lake City might be a win, it would also put pressure on the terminal. Fly into
or out of Santa Fe now, and the process is generally smooth from the time a traveler jumps into her car to the time she steps on a plane. “It’s not the time to the airport,” Kirk explains, “it’s really the time to the gate.” While the alliance considers how to attract more travelers and more flights, the city has estimates in hand that will check off two of the most pressing needs at the airport—reconstructing the primary taxiway from the southwest end of the main runway back to the terminal, and repairing the top couple inches of landing surface on the entire main runway. Those two projects will cost roughly $4.2 million if the FAA approves the apparent low bids. The federal government covers the vast majority of that work, leaving the city on the hook for less than $132,000—about the cost of a condo in midtown.
TERMINAL ILLNESS: A PROPOSED CURE NEW ENTRANCE & PARKING LOT
The Federal Aviation Administration will pay for some airport improvements. The city hopes that includes a new terminal building.
According to the master plan draft that’s in front of the Airport Advisory Board on Wednesday, there is nearly $30 million in other needed improvements and maintenance costs over the next 20 years. They include a quick-turnaround facility for rental cars, a new entrance from the as-yet-unused interchange with Highway 599 and an extension of the primary runway to potentially enable it to handle larger commercial jets. There’s also the planned improvement of the airport’s third runway, known by the abbreviation for the 180-degree difference in its compass headings: 10-28. It’s key to the space problem outside the terminal, and it may play a much larger role in paying for a new terminal than expected—especially considering it’s temporarily closed because of bad pavement. The Federal Aviation Administration’s funding structure normally won’t pay for a third runway—let alone a new terminal. But because the layout of the airport runs afoul of safety guidelines, there’s a chance that the feds would kick in money to make sure an airport that is almost certain to get more busy will also be more safe. “It makes funding for the terminal more competitive,” Humphres says. For now, job one is getting the airport master plan approved. It hasn’t been updated since 2002, and when it’s completed, both the city and the FAA will have a better idea of what lies ahead. By next year, the city could be hiring an architect to design a new terminal and, perhaps, have a better idea of how much of the bill for it would be paid by the federal government.

BY ERIC KILLELEA a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
ressed in a longsleeved button-down and dark jeans, Sam Shepard, seated in the north room of the Santa Fe Institute library, dropped his hands from a handsome, clean-shaven jawline onto a portable Olympia typewriter. He rejected an office and preferred to work among the books, alone at his adopted desk, set below a window offering views of the Jemez Mountains. He worked here for the solitude, transforming Oedipus into what would become his final play, A Particle of Dread. Shepard’s plays about troubled families—fathers and sons, alcoholics and drifters in the American West—influenced a generation of writers. And Santa Fe influenced him. The Pulitzer Prize-winner first moved here in 1983 after leaving his 12

first wife, O-Lan Jones, and their son in California to eventually live with actress Jessica Lange and her daughter. In Santa Fe, Shepard hoped to escape the “star bullshit,” find a place to rent, and reinstate the “Garcia y Vega Club,” composed of himself, his son and his former father-in-law Johnny Dark. In one of the 1,000 letters between the men who considered themselves brothers, excerpts of which SFR is sharing with permission, Dark described Shepard’s move to Santa Fe as “the further adventures of Huck Finn as written to his friend Tom, in which Huck goes to the American Southwest and begins to get along with himself.” Dark was right—and he wasn’t. Shepard built a family here, hit the bars, rode horses, fired guns, read avidly, studied the spiritual teachings of philosopher George Gurdjieff, wrote plays, bounced around movie sets and landed a Miller Distinguished Scholarship at the institute in 2010. He lived with his family in Santa Fe between 1983 and 1986, then alone from 2010 to 2015, before moving to his home in Kentucky, where he died
on July 27 of this year. He was 73. The cause was amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. In a recent New Yorker piece, friend and onetime lover Patti Smith wrote that Shepard—who was raised on an avocado farm in California by an Air Force bomber pilot and a teacher, only to write plays in the booming offoff Broadway scene during the 1960s in Manhattan—“liked to be on the move.” Shepard wrote about a corrupted Midwestern heritage in Buried Child, which won him the Pulitzer in 1979. He received an Academy Award nomination in 1984 for his portrayal of an Air Force pilot in The Right Stuff. He traveled with a fishing rod, an acoustic guitar and a dog. He wrote more than 55 plays, acted in 60 movies, and always brought a notebook, pen and books for the road. The greatest American playwright of his generation listened to coyotes howling in the desert and dreamed of riding horses without a saddle. In New Mexico, friends of Shepard now describe him as a family man, an affectionate father of three who had a 30-year relationship with Lange. They say he was a playful, generous friend who encouraged them in their own writing. He was reserved yet available for conversation and could be charming when meeting scientists for lunch at the institute, or when he sat beside the late Rosalea Murphy for Silver
Coin margaritas at the Pink Adobe Dragon Room, which she founded. There was shadow, too, friends say. He was the son of an alcoholic, a cagey loner who could think himself a phony, a rootless man who abandoned his first wife and son for Smith, then lived with Lange to start anew in the New Mexican desert. In Deming, Dark, now a deli clerk at Peppers Supermarket, reminisces on living with his then-wife, along with his daughter (Jones), Shepard and his grandson in the 1970s near San Francisco. Dark and Shepard exchanged letters over 45 years. In 2009, after Shepard separated from Lange, he decided to sell the letters to the University of Texas Press. The friends edited the collection together, sometimes at the Santa Fe Institute, where Dark met with physicist David Pines, who recalls “the two of them being as close as brothers and Sam being proud of that correspondence.” But the competitive relationship suffered through the editing process, and Chad Hammett was brought on to help mediate through publication in 2013. “These guys went as deep as you can go,” Hammett says. “There was a part of Sam that wanted to connect with people. I think he was able to connect with people through his writing, whether his plays or his letters.” For Shepard, who never wanted to write a memoir, the letters got damn close to revealing who he was. “You could tell how deeply some of them cut him,” Hammett says. “The letters about his leaving his wife and son. It still pained him.” Early examples show how Shepard viewed his work and reveal his efforts to define what it means
to be a man. “And as he got older, the conversations that he had with Johnny became, ‘What does it mean to be a good man?’” Hammett says. Those who knew Shepard say he carried himself like a laconic cowboy: He knew how to breed and ride horses, cut cattle out of a herd. His strong but almost shy mannerisms mirrored the roles played by Gary Cooper and Clint Eastwood. He was a man plucked out of yesterday. He never used computers or email. He certainly did not tweet. Acting appeared part hobby and part thrill. He enjoyed playing characters that took him to strange depths, even if that meant isolation. “Lonely fodder for future work,” Smith wrote. But writing motivated him. Early on, he fed off emotion and drug-fueled bursts of energy, scrapping attempts at novels 200 pages in, only to resurrect them in later works. He became a more measured, complicated writer as he aged. In Santa Fe, Jeremy Sabloff, president of SFI from 2009 to 2015, says Shepard was a perfect fit as a Miller Scholar, a position created to welcome creative types onto Cowan Campus for “both their complementary and orthogonal perspectives.” Shepard shared the independent thinker role with longtime institute-based writer Cormac McCarthy between 2010 and 2011, and stayed on after his fellowship ended. At the institute, Shepard talked to his colleagues about writing and acting. “He was so low-key,” Sabloff says. “Given the common perception of famous actors and writers, Sam was not full of himself.” Shepard attended institute events, but he was more interested in how both scientists and artists occupy a creative space. Further considering Shepard’s personality, Sabloff recalls watching Blackthorn in 2011, in which Shepard played a renamed version of American train robber Butch Cassidy. “He’s on this horse and he doesn’t say a lot, but you get this great force of determination,” Sabloff says. “It captured the essence of Sam.” Shepard appeared in several New Mexico-made films, including 2000’s
All The Pretty Horses, an adaption of the National Book Award-winning novel by McCarthy. Felon, released in 2008, was another. He wrote and directed the Western Silent Tongue, a reimagining of the old West down in Roswell, released in 1993. And his play Fool for Love was recreated for the screen and directed by Robert Altman in El Dorado and Las Vegas, New Mexico, in 1985. The local press, along with local bartenders and waiters, shared past sightings of Shepard walking with his children near the Plaza, reading at Garcia Street Books, eating at Harry’s Roadhouse and drinking with Lange at Coyote Café. Shepard was known in many quarters of Santa Fe. But, aside from the fond memories of a man about town, he was admittedly both enamored with and haunted by the City Different. Here, he was awash in desires for isolation and community. “He was terrible at his relationships, but he had his writing,” Dark tells SFR. “He lived in Santa Fe, but he also lived in hotels and on the road. He was almost like a man without a home. … He might have been running away or he might have been running toward something.” Shepard’s father worked as a custodian at the La Fonda Hotel and died after a vehicle hit him outside a bar here in the mid-1980s. The drink preyed on Shepard as well. After separating with Lange, he drank hard and was arrested and charged with speeding and drunken driving in Illinois in 2009; he was arrested again on suspicion of aggravated DWI in Santa Fe in 2015. Shepard began feeling the dire effects of ALS, which wreaks havoc on the nervous system, several years ago. He remained private, telling few of his disease. Many friends say they did not know he was sick until he left Santa Fe for Kentucky. “He couldn’t breathe in the high altitude,” Dark says. “He really loved the institute up there, but he thought, ‘Maybe it’s just the air. I’m having trouble breathing.’” It is impossible for friends to fully explain Shepard. “When you talk about Sam, are you talking about the 23-year-old or the 30-year-old or the 60-year old?” Dark says. “The theater Sam or the movie Sam? The guy at home or the guy at the bar? The funny, generous Sam? Sometimes they were different people.”
Shepard To Dark April 2, 1983
I talked with Mathew tonite since we’re only about 4 hours nor th of Santa Fe & he’s ar ranged us hotel reservations & is working on getting us a place to rent. He switched right into high businessman gear & talking with him is like talking to a travel agent or something. He’s g reat though & working his ass of f to f ind us a place without letting anyone know “who” it’s for. We’ve only r un into the “star” bullshit once—in Denver—but it was a real drag with all the waitresses and customers coming over to get her autog raph. I hope it’s not going to be a big deal that way in Santa Fe but who knows. We ar rive tomor row at Mathew’s and he’s going to f ill us in on the possible houses we can rent. As soon as I know where we’ll be I’ll let you know so you & Jesse can make plans to come down. I’m really looking for ward to seeing you both. We’ll have a g reat time down there re-instating the “Garcia y Vega” Club. I gotta get some sleep now. More later. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE
Shepard wrote more than 55 plays, but never a memoir. A collection of letters he penned to friend and former father-in-law Johnny Dark is a stand-in.

Then I go diving fur ther into the past and remember when you and I had met each other in the lobby of the La Fonda af ter a night of debaucher y with two women and no sleep and I keep right on associating into the inevitable memories of my Dad being a custodian at the La Fonda and then, before I know exactly what’s going on with myself I’m there inside the La Fonda at the bar ordering another g lass of red wine! There’s a whole g roup of Eng lish tourists sitting in one cor ner of the place ordering Ger man beer. They’re ver y organized and even go about getting dr unk in an orderly fashion. I f inish this second large g lass of red wine and go out into the lobby and star t wandering around staring at all the g reat photog raphs of early Santa Fe days, some dating back to the ver y early 1800’s—views of the plaza with muddy streets and bur ros and Indians and Mexicans and soldiers and all the g reat mix of races and the marketplace and traders from all over—none of them with even the slightest clue that the whole place would one day be invaded by

I head out into the street and f ind yet another bar, another hotel, another big g lass of red wine and f inally manage to get myself good and sloshed. Now, I got to the plaza or rather, tr y to walk through the plaza on my way back to the hotel where I’m staying. There’s still not a soul on the street. One lowrider car—a silver Chevy which I’m actually surprised to see—I thought all the low-riders had moved up to Española. The plaza is completely decked out in Christmas lights—ever ything is wrapped and draped in lights: the trees, the band shell, the bank, the Gover nor’s Palace, the iron fences sur rounding the snow covered lawn—red, g reen, blue, white; blinking on and off. I get to the ver y center of the plaza and star t tur ning in circles for some reason and staring up through the bar ren trees, ver y dr unk, seeing the big moon overhead—something like one of those early bad
foreign f ilms with sub-titles and I star t feeling ver y sor r y for myself and conjure up all this stuff about my father and the play I just f inished in San F rancisco which deals with his death and all that stuff and the whole thing just becomes a god-awful dr unken mess of emotional indulgence in the past!! At one point I’m cr ying out to the moon and the heavens in a dr unken wail, thinking there’s no one around and all of a sudden I see someone walking straight towards me across the plaza—not a cop, just a person but It’s so shocking to see another human being—and this is par t of what I

THIS IS IMPORTANT… If there’s a harder-working artist and coordinator than Israel Francisco Haros Lopez, we don’t know ‘em. From his Chicano Codex Coloring Book and recent solo shows at Iconik Coffee Roasters to his work tutoring youths and locking down tech and help for the school-aged set, he’s basically the best. This time out, however, Lopez brought together seven local artists like Niomi Fawn, Jared Antonio-Justo Trujillo and others to create portable murals for the Siler Yard Arts + Creativity Center, the upcoming live/work/create space in the revitalized Siler Road area. Lopez and crew reveal and dedicate the murals this Thursday along with Mayor Javier Gonzales. (Alex De Vore)

It’s Hard Out There for a Gimp So says Kalyn Heffernan, aka Wheelchair Sports Camp, the wheelchair-bound Denver-based MC, on her song of the same name—the song that made us fall in love. Heffernan is fire, a studied lyricist who spits rhymes one day, goes to jail for her activism the next, shoots some of the coolest and most impressive music videos roaming the internet today and crafts clever, socially relevant lyrics to the tune of “shut the fuck up, she’s music-ing.” “I found rap music when I was 5, so it’s really been my first identity,” Heffernan tells SFR. “Before I identified with my disability or my femininity or my queerness, it’s always been my first love. … I started writing my own raps when I was 12 for a talent show.” And they’re smart, a seamless mix of live hip-hop, jazz, experimentalism and Heffernan’s undeniably smooth flow. Through music, she explores all aspects of herself and the rap game: The MC, the educator, the activist, the self-described shit-talker, Heffernan picks apart preconceived societal notions of her disability, her musical ability and beyond. She’s grown with the music as well, putting together her own beats, sampling from anything that sounds good, working with live drums and trumpet SFREPORTER.COM
(not to mention a pedal steel guitarist for her current tour) and collaborating with underground beatsmiths in the pursuit of original sound. “I used to make all the beats and produce it all—I started making beats in high school when I couldn’t afford to pay men to do it for me or pay for studio time to teach myself,” she says. “I’ve been trying to produce more for other people in the studio, which has been awesome; we had the late, great Ikey Owens produce [the song] ‘No Big Deal’ before he passed away, and he made it what it is.” See, it’s more than a simple love of hip-hop that drives Heffernan—it’s in her bones. “I’ve always been drawn to it,” she explains, “since the first time I heard it scrolling through the radio stations. It’s pretty inexplicable. It’s always been my everything.” Find out more this week as Wheelchair Sports Camp takes the stage alongside local MC Benzo III at Second Street Brewery’s brand-spanking-new Rufina Street location.

MUSIC Five Reasons to be at The Murderburgers’ Santa Fe Show BY ALEX DE VORE a l e x @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
evoted readers (and c’mon, there are scads of you, I just know it) will no doubt be aware that I’m super into emo and pop punk and all of those genres’ many offshoots and subgenres. This is tough for a Santa Fean, however, since the chances to see such things live have been minimal (with a hat-tip to the folks at Meow Wolf for that great Waxahatchee show a couple weeks ago that also introduced me to the Maryland band Snail Mail, whom I now love all hard), but the upcoming appearance from Scotland’s The Murderburgers at The Underground might just fix all that … for a minute, anyway. Here’s five great reasons you should be excited, too:
They’re Nostalgic! I sent the video for the song “The Waves” to a friend of mine who said, “Love it. Reminded me of my youth.” Indeed, it’s the fast-paced and upbeat sound of pop-punk you knew and loved 15-plus years ago, but Murderburgers front man and main songwriter Fraser ( just Fraser, like Cher) sidesteps blink-182 schmaltz for more of a smart and raw Fat Wreck sound. Google that if you don’t know it, and be amazed. “I think it’s been getting better,” Fraser tells me of the reception to the band. “When we first started out, it was difficult to get 10 people out to a show, but we just played Glasgow and there were a couple hundred people there.”
Murderburgers front man Fraser let us call him on the phone.
They’ve Got Good Guests! The 12 Habits of Highly Defective People, the band’s 2016 album, features members of another fantastic contemporary pop-punk act: Wisconsin’s Masked Intruder. And though the mysterious masked members of that particular band lean pretty hard into adorable songs of love and loneliness, it’s mostly the musical aesthetic that wound up in the Murderburgers stuff. “We had Red on drums and Yellow on bass … it was half of Masked Intruder on the album,” Fraser says. “It all just fell into place accidentally; the drumming on the demo was pretty different from the way Red plays the drums, and it changed things a bit, but I preferred the way he did it.”
They’re on Asian Man Records! The San Jose-area label is run out of founder Mike Park’s mom’s garage, as it has been since its inception in the ’90s. If having your mom pick up your mail and employing exactly one person while forever changing the course of punk rock, pop punk, ska and beyond isn’t the
most punk thing you hear today, you’re leading cooler lives than we are, that’s for damn sure. “I’ve always been a fan of the label—since I started getting into punk music,” Fraser explains. “We played with Joyce Manor, who used to be on Asian Man, and Barry [Johnson] said he was gonna pitch us to Asian Man. … I thought there was no way [Mike Park] was going to go for it, I felt like he took this restless Scottish band that people hadn’t heard of, and it’s been going pretty well because of it.” They Really Got it Together! Fraser has stated in interviews that albums prior to 2016’s 12 Habits were just kind of thrown together, whereas their most recent offering was produced by Chicago-based Matt Allison, a guy who’s worked with the likes of Alkaline Trio, The Broadways, Smoking Popes and many, many more. “We never really had that experience of recording in a professional studio with someone who’d worked with similar bands and on records that I’m a big fan of,” Fraser recalls. “It’s definitely worth it, it’s one of the best recording ex-
periences I’ve ever had and I’m really happy with how it turned out.” They’ve Got Great Stuff Coming Up! Fraser tells me that after this tour, he’ll head back to Scotland and spend some time working on non-band things, demoing new stuff and working with non-Murderburgers musicians. And even though 12 Habits only came out last October, he’s raring to go on the next album and currently working on demos and is in the planning stages of a split with Israeli punk act Not on Tour plus some other splits which haven’t been nailed down just yet. “Once we’re not touring, I feel like I’ll have more time to focus on recording stuff,” he says. “I’d like to get a new record out next year.”

BurnWhom? What exactly is Zozobra’s deal? BY ALICIA INEZ GUZMÁN a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
ver the years, Zozobra has had many looks: a pencil mustache, a black comb-over, pointy, elf-like ears, a grandmotherly coif (think short and permed), bulbous lips that bring to mind the likes of Steven Tyler, a revolving door of eyebrow configurations (all of them more or less angry). But the long and short of it is, we know what to expect when it comes to Zozo’s appearance: a belted white frock with buttons running down the center, a bow tie, glowing eyes and some very strange hand gestures. Zozobra is and isn’t formulaic, a caricature not of anyone in particular, it would seem, except for that ambiguous non-being, “Old Man Gloom.” In that way, Zozobra shares the same vague category of Burning Man’s “The Man.” Still, I’ve always circled back to the same question: What exactly is Zozobra? I haven’t been since college. Then, the event felt like a smoke-filled haze, chants of “burn him” shaking Fort Marcy Park. Effigies have that effect. They are infused with the collective energy of “the people,” united by their dislike for a particular (and typically) political and politically divisive figure. Effigies of Donald Trump in Mexico City’s Easter Celebration have burned two years running, not to mention the countless piñatas that bear comb-overs and spray tans even more ghastly than the originals. Enrique Peña-Nieto hasn’t escaped symbolic immolation either. And when Margaret Thatcher died of a stroke, anti-Thatcher activists lit her likeness on fire in South Yorkshire.
For better or worse, effigies make the particular abstract, and in the process do what politics can’t: enact a collective and symbolic catharsis. But who is the “him” for Zozobra? Gloom and the past, yes. Perhaps former lovers, too? POTUS? Bad employers? Bad employees? A blank slate for everyone’s respective projections? A reason to party? All of the above? I mean, there aren’t anti-Zozobra activists like there are anti-Trump activists. The giant marionette is supposed to be gloom itself (who can forget the moans?) made manifest with old divorce papers and police files, as well as the grievances that attendees can write on-site. Once there was even a wedding dress that went up in flames. He is a reason to say goodbye to the past with friends, family and strangers by your side. At least commercially, the burning of Zozobra is the kick-off event for Fiestas; when he succumbs to the fire dancer and burns into a pile of ash, “the crowd dances joyfully as they sing the Fiesta Song, and the centuries-old Fiestas de Santa Fe return to bring happiness and hope to the people of Santa Fe,” as the event’s website (burnzozobra.com) tells it. It’s certainly a rosy way of describing a marionette, part monster part ghost, that gets burned to the ground. But so it goes.
Or does it? There’s a strange plot twist, here; Zozobra kicks off the reenactment of Santa Fe’s self-styled (and deeply questionable) origin story, DeVargas’ “peaceful” re-entry into Santa Fe after the Pueblo Revolt. And while Fiestas have been celebrated since DeVargas’ death in the opening years of the 18th century, it was Edgar Lee Hewett, a non-Spanish identifying white archeologist, midwesterner and Museum of New Mexico founder, along with a hand-
ful of tourism boosters, who first initiated the Entrada in 1919. Hewett is one thing. And so is the Entrada, a blatant whitewashing of history. But Zozobra’s strange place in Fiestas is one of those paradoxes that’s hard to ignore once recognition hits. Zozobra’s burning rids us of the gloom of the recent past only to take us further back in time. The result is that we land in an era of invented Spanish colonialism, the 20th century. In that, the giant muslin-rigged marionette shares his birth with the birth of Santa Fe’s collective “Spanish” identity. Constructed in 1924 by transplant artist Will Shuster, the earliest Zozobra took the form of a conquistador replete with a goatee, his first appearance a parody of Fiestas and the Entrada. Since that time, Zozobra has gained a reputation as Santa Fe’s most beloved (and goofy) antihero, save for his role in 1943, the height of WWII. Then, Zozobra was fashioned by Shuster into a caricature that appeared to recall Hideki Tojo, general of the Japanese Imperial Army and Prime Minister of Japan from 1941 to 1944. With exaggerated facial features and a pair of round spectacles, this particular Zozobra was nothing short of racism fueled by xenophobia and hyper-nationalism. It was also more broadly reflective of wartime propaganda. As we march toward Zozo’s 100th birthday, with celebrations of individual decades along the way(it’s the 1950s this year), it’s clear that he’s worn a few different hats. Now, mostly it seems Zozobra is just himself, a mix of pageantry and pyrotechnics. ZOZOBRA 3 pm Friday Sept. 1; burning at approx. 9:30 pm. $10-$60.

My brother just broke up with his girlfriend for the second time in eight months. They had been together for two and a half years, and she became pretty discontent when she finished college and my brother entered law school because all his time and attention weren’t revolving around her. In January, she staged this bizarre, soap-opera-esque situation to make my brother jealous, and then broke up with him when he reacted predictably. (This is not speculation—she admitted to it.) After the breakup, my brother became a mess of a person—sobbing all the time and talking about her to anyone and everyone. At the risk of sounding insensitive, he was unbearable. Then, against the advice of my family, he started talking to her again and they got back together. The second breakup came after he snooped and found out she had been texting her ex-boyfriend. She was telling that guy that she was trying to line up her next boyfriend while still dating my brother. They broke up again, and he’s now back in the same situation. He started back at school yesterday. He almost fucked that up last time because of her bullshit, and I don’t want to see that happen again. Additionally, I feel bad this happened—I really do—but I don’t have the time or patience to have the same conversation with him a million times. It’s exhausting and annoying. -Now Over Brother’s Relationship Obsession Your brother is an adult. (I mean, presumably he’s an adult—they’re not letting minors into law school these days, are they?) And since he’s an adult, NOBRO, you can’t stop him from making terrible choices or the same terrible choice over and over again. But here’s the good news, NOBRO: You’re an adult, too! And just as you can’t force your brother to stay away from this toxic POS, your brother can’t force you to converse with him all day long about politics or his POS ex or Game of Thrones turning into Star Trek. (Suddenly, only characters we don’t care about die on GoT. I half expect to see red shirts on the extras in season 7.) And if your brother makes the mistake of getting back together with this woman a second time, your adult ears don’t have to listen to his adult ass complain endlessly about the by-now-predictable consequences of his terrible choices. If you’re feeling anxious about conversations you fear being dragged into, NOBRO, let your brother know you’re done listening to him sob about his ex. “It was idiotic to take her back the first time,” you could say. “But, hey, we all do idiotic things from time to time, particularly where our love lives are concerned. You would have to be an idiot, however, to take her back a second time. Personally, bro, I don’t think you should waste another second of your life pining for that manipulative piece of shit. I’m definitely not wasting another minute of my life discussing her with you. So how about Jon Snow getting out that frozen lake full of zombies, huh? Apparently hypothermia isn’t a thing in the Seven Kingdoms.” My ex-boyfriend and I were together for a year and a half. He is a silver fox who is significantly older than me. I was 23 when we met and he was 58. It was supposed to be a fling, but it evolved into a beautiful romance. But after much consideration (he has a vasectomy and already has four kids and will be retiring soon), we ended it three months ago. It was heartbreaking, but we made a conscious decision to be close friends and talk every day. Out of the blue last week, he asked me if I had a boyfriend. I don’t, but I was coincidentally about to go on my first date
AUGUST 30-SEPTEMBER 5, 2017
since the breakup. He proceeded to tell me he “kinda” has a new girlfriend, a woman closer to his age. This was not something I wanted to hear, which he could tell from the silence that met this disclosure. This conversation ruined my weekend. I have been unable to eat or sleep. The guy I went on a date with was sexy—not a love connection, but a bangtown prospect—but I was too emotionally fucked to do anything with him. Do I explain these thoughts to my ex? Let time do the healing? Why did my ex feel the need to tell me about his new girlfriend? -Heartbroken Over New Ex’s Yummy Your ex told you about his new girlfriend because you two are close friends, right? And close friends typically confide in each other about their love lives, don’t they? And that’s what you wanted, isn’t it? Backing up: It’s always inspiring when two people manage to salvage a friendship after their romantic relationship ends. But it’s not possible—it’s certainly not on anyone’s list of breakup best practices—to go in an instant from lovers to besties who talk on the phone every day. You got your heart broken, HONEY, and only time can cauterize that particular wound. Your reaction to the news that your ex has a new girlfriend proves your post-breakup friendship wasn’t a “conscious decision” but an ill-advised rush. And while the physical aspect of your relationship with Mr. Silver Fox ended three months ago, you never got out of each other’s pants emotionally. (A bruised ego might also be contributing to your inability to eat or sleep—he got over you faster than you got over him.) I don’t think you should explain anything to your ex right now, HONEY, because I don’t think you should talk to your ex for the next six months or so. You need to get on with your life—and getting on that new guy is a good place to start. I’m a 26-year-old heterosexual female, and I was recently dumped by my boyfriend. He was my first love and the person I lost my virginity to. We’d been seeing each other for a little over a year. I had sex with someone else while I was seeing my ex (it was a more casual relationship in the beginning). I wanted more, and I’m not 100 percent sure but think that’s what scared him off. I went into a depression and started seeing a therapist. This all happened a little more than a month ago. Friends tell me that the “best way to get over someone is to get under someone else,” but I’m not sure what to do. I’m pretty sure I’m doing the thing I shouldn’t be doing: holding out hope my ex will decide he made a horrible decision and want to be with me again. I know it is idiotic to have this hope. Can you give me some direction? -Don’t Underestimate My Pain This may not be helpful in the short term, DUMP, but it’s not idiotic to hold out hope your ex will take you back. It could happen— indeed, it has happened for lots of folks. I have two friends who are married to men who dumped them, regretted it, and begged to be taken back. The trick, however, is to assume it won’t happen and make a conscious effort to get on with your life. (And, if necessary, a conscious effort to get under someone else.) Your boyfriend/first love/first fuck dumped you a little more than a month ago—you’re allowed, one month and change later, to live in hope of a reconciliation. Odds are good, though, that it’s a false hope, DUMP, so don’t pass on any solid offers and keep seeing that therapist. On the Lovecast, parents, talk smart to your kids about sex: savagelovecast.com

Is it weird to laugh when the world is ending? Yes and no. I’m a big fan of comedy that does not shy away from the issues. … There’s no point in going through life afraid, and if you can take a step back and laugh about things, then I think that you’re going to be a healthier, happier human being. Some folks think that laughing at current events is irresponsible. The uproar about ‘sheetcaking’ comes to mind. What would you say to that? I understand the sentiment, frankly. I get how, when we’re in dire straits, that comedy seems frivolous. But I don’t think it ever really is. I think it’s part of the human experience, and I think that it very rarely takes away the direness of the situation. It doesn’t make you feel like it doesn’t matter any more because we’re laughing about it. But it can take your mind to a new place, and help re-frame the situation. How did the writing and the rehearsing go when crazy shit just kept happening? Like, ‘Oh my god, that guy Big Rog just brought a gun to City Council, how do we get that in?’ That’s always a tricky thing with the Melodrama. ... If we can put in something without derailing the plot, we’ll continue to put things in even during the run. That’s part of what political comedy is, it has to be current and it has to matter. ... On the note of what’s-his-bucket with the gun, we actually did get that into the script. One of the things we did this year, because national politics are so crazy right now, is we included national politics, but we kept it with a local lens. … There’s a balance that the writers always try to strike; there were eight people on the team this year, and they’re all bringing various ideas, and you can’t include everything—because there’s kind of an unlimited well of crazy, stupid shit that happens in Santa Fe and in the United States, so we had to pick and choose what served the story.

UPDATE YOUR WARDROBE WITH AUTUMNAL TRENDS
makes everything from lip balm to face spray using plants and flowers foraged from high-desert terrain in Northern New Mexico. In this retail collective, you’ll also find the newest location for Wanderer (Bed Head, “You’re Welcome at Wanderer,” June 7). Ashley Arabian’s Taos shop is one of my favorite boutiques for anything from a date night dress to an everyday jacket, and a real good bet when it comes to finding on-trend fall fashions. Besides having great taste, these people are local and lovely, so hunting for a wardrobe update at this dance party is a no-brainer.
Trade your ratty beanie for a beret. STO RY BY M A R I A EG O L F - RO M E RO I L L U S T R AT I O N S B Y T H E A M I L I N A I R É
The days get shorter and the mornings are crisp—fall is almost here, and it’s time to buy a sweater. This year, fall fashion features the reincarnation of 1970s flounce and flow. The overall aesthetic sticks with summer ’17 trends, which have also been all about the decade of disco. Autumn shapes are big and comfortable; from wide-legged pants to big sleeves—lazy chic is in. Fall is also back-to-school time, and a good opportunity to find new inspirations. Brewing a new project, dedicating your time to hitting the books or digging back into your job are made easier when you’re feeling fresh, and the following fall trends may help people take you more seriously— or at least make them think, “Damn, who’s that fine dresser?”
Support locals while filling your closet. I am a huge advocate of shopping locally, particularly when the opportunity to do so presents itself in a new location with products made and curated by New Mexicans. So, it’s my two cents that you should look for these and other spiffy fall wardrobe additions at Spur Line Supply Co. (800 20th St. NW, Albuquerque). The 8,600-square-foot space opens Friday, Sept. 1, with a bash at 5 pm, including an exclusive cocktail from Level 5 (the bar at the chic new Hotel Chaco), food from The Grove Café and Market and live DJ sets. The structure in the Sawmill District houses small retail spots for locals. Among vendors, you’ll find Aaron Boyd’s Tres Cuervos Leatherworks. Boyd designs and produces men’s wallets and bracelets, as well as field journals, bandanas and more in Santa Fe. Dry Land Wilds also occupies a spot in Spur Line Supply Co. A skincare and cosmetics brand, this group
Chic pieces like berets a kitten heel booties will make your fall wardrobe feel fresh.
We all know heat escapes through the top of the head. So, wearing a hat in the next few months as temperatures dip is sensible and fashionable. Beanies are an easy go-to, but berets are just as effortless and ooze sophistication in the place of careless college kiddo. This accessory also provides an opportunity to throw a little color into your fall wardrobe. Red is particularly hot right now—terrible pun not intended. Matching your ruby beret with your lipstick takes less than 2 minutes, and adds serious polish to any ensemble.
Get a pair of kitten-heel booties. Slipping into a pair of boots is a sure sign of cooler weather, and the current trend is white kitten-heel ankle boots. Yeah, that’s a bit of a risk when it comes to footwear in the desert. They do, however, look amazing paired with a band tee and some leggings (an outfit that feels like pajamas) so, I vote yes. If white is just not doing it for you, there are a litany of other colors to choose from, and kitten heels are just as cute on a pair of sling-backs; another classic nod to the era of the original Charlie’s Angels. That professional aura you’re aiming for is partially dependent on your appearance, and nothing says you mean business like a pair of ladylike heels.
Actually, flowy pants are the best pants. Cooler weather and less daylight mean more Netflix binging, reading and general indoor-ness. So, pants that are as comfortable as sweatpants but much more fashionable are just about all a gal could ask for. Luckily, baggy, wide-legged pants are everywhere this season. So run to grab coffee in the same stretchy pair you spent all last night in, and get compliments instead of weird looks. At least something is going right in 2017.

OLD-SCHOOL VS. BRAND-NEW
Who Can Sell Wine in America? BY MARY FRANCIS CHEESEMAN a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
e live in an age where American faith in branding has yielded true corporate giants; where Walmart and Amazon wage war on an influencer battlefield; a world where you slip on your Nikes to go eat a Big Mac and play on an iPhone while drinking a Starbucks without even thinking about it. But when it comes to wine, people become more willing to take a chance and search for hidden treasures, to explore what tastes standard, and then explore more deeply what tastes good, in the best and most subjective possible way. In fact, the conception of a wine producer as a “brand” has French roots. As an primer, let’s look at a wine called Blason d’Issan, a second label created by a famous wine estate called Château d’Issan, a classified Third Growth winery from the Margaux appellation in the Bordeaux region of France. That’s a lot of information to parse about this wine in one sentence, and we haven’t even talked about what grapes are in it. For the record, it is a red blend, reliably mostly cabernet sauvignon and merlot, produced in a more ready-todrink style than the vins de garde put out by the mother estate. It is made from young vines being cultivated for loftier bottlings, and the grapes in the bottle must only come from Margaux, where the Château owns 40 hectares. It costs $50 and tastes powerful and elegant, but
vintage variation makes a difference and this wine is never truly the same year after year. Even though the winery makes over a hundred thousand bottles, it will never be a “ubiquitous” wine ... and that’s what makes drinking it so much fun. Since Folgers and Coca-Cola debuted in the 19th century, thirsty Americans typically have looked to trusted brands to supply them with quality and value. Less

than a century later, the American wine industry was forced to rebuild itself after the damaging erasure of Prohibition. When the 21st Amendment was ratified, handing over control of importation and distribution to state and local government, 48 different wine markets were created. To be effective, an American wine producer in the early days needed to produce wine on a large enough scale to make national distribution worthwhile. The national taste for wine prioritized a wine that tasted exactly the same from bottle to bottle. The “house style” rather than the “regionality” or “terroir” of a wine became all-important. A perfect example is a wine called Meiomi. Meiomi is a pinot noir for cabernet

drinkers. It has a body unlike any other pinot noir I’ve met—full rich ripeness, it appeals to people who like the sweet tannin of American cabernet sauvignons. Created by Joe Wagner of the famous Caymus Vineyards, it was bought in 2015 by Constellation Brands, one of the most powerful forces of wine distribution in America. Annual production of the wine exceeds 500,000 cases and is on the rise. It retails for $28, and you can buy Meiomi practically anywhere. According to the label, the grapes can be sourced from three different California counties: Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara. Between the three of them, the grapes can be sourced from over 70,000 hectares. That’s 1,750 times more than what Château d’Issan owns in Margaux, without even getting into yields or aging requirements or any of the other factors that make quick, high-volume production possible. And yet, Meiomi does what it does well—it is remarkable in its homogeneity, but it does not drink like a cheap bulk wine. It also is not a treasure to hunt down in a secret corner of a wine shop. Not all American wines are like Meiomi. Some are small-production and limited in distribution—which brings us to the 2014 Belle Pente pinot noir, from the Murto Vineyard in the Dundee Hills of Oregon. Produced from a single vineyard of grapes, it emphasizes regionality. Annual production of this wine is 573 cases. It tastes like ripe fruits with natural tartness—pie cherry and cranberry and pomegranate—with a beguiling earthy note of dried leaves and forest floor. It retails for $35, is a little harder to find than Meiomi and may taste different from bottle to bottle because of a multitude of factors, including vintage variation and a less homogenous house winemaking style. Regardless, it’s typically perfect for drinking in the fall.

Menashe Review Heart and heartbreak in Hasidic New York
BY ALEX DE VORE a l e x @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
Director Joshua Weinstein presents an intimately heartbreaking and painstakingly accurate depiction of the Hasidim living in Brooklyn in Menashe, a tale loosely based on the life of its star, Menashe Lustig. Menashe lost his wife a year prior to the events of the film, and Hasidic law dictates his son Rieven must be raised with a complete family (we even learn that should Menashe remarry, the stepmother wouldn’t be allowed to touch his son). Thus, Rieven is sent to live with Menashe’s brother, a decidedly humorless stickler for rules who affords Menashe little respect and imposes the strictest of upbringings on his nephew. Thematically, the film could have played out in any sort of community—love, loss and the underdog are universal—but by delving deep into the laws, customs and everyday lives of Hasid-

- A LITTLE SHORT
ic Jews in New York, we are given a rarely-seen glimpse into a sect that operates in plain view but whose inner-workings remain unknown to most. Lustig is phenomenal as the downtrodden father figure caught between his religion and love for his son. He’s far from perfect, and his penchant for cracking jokes damages his credibility in the eyes of his brethren. But observing constant humiliation driven by his boss, his brother, his rabbi or at arranged dates makes us root for him, even as he struggles to pay rent, feed his son and get to work on time. Menashe is presented primarily in Yiddish, and Weinsten goes so far as to cast ultra-ortho-
dox New Yorkers, most of whom perform without a film credit. Not only does this add unprecedented authenticity to the film, it surprises with each natural performance; this is as real as it gets. Add fantastic examples of traditional Jewish music and just enough humor and heart, and we’ve got one of the most fascinating and engrossing films of the year. MENASHE Directed by Weinstein With Lustig Center for Contemporary Arts, PG, 82 min.
EL SALVADOR: ANOTHER VIETNAM AND ATOMIC ARTIST
THE DARK TOWER
Patricia Dombrowski (Danielle Macdonald) dreams of hip-hop superstardom in Patti Cake$.
+ DANIELLE MACDONALD IS A MUCH BETTER ACTOR THAN EMINEM
- HAVE I SEEN THIS BEFORE?
Patricia Dombrowski, aka Killa P, aka Patti Cake$, is an aspiring rapper. She’s undeniably talented, but she doesn’t fit the template of what the music industry expected a rapper to look like—she’s a fat white girl. The “chasing your dreams” picture is not a new idea. It usually goes something like this: The main character has a talent and a dream. They usually live in a shitty place and have a shitty job, which is only extra motivation for their ultimate goal. Obstacles and rivals rise and fall in front of them, and then there’s a final test which shows off their skills, heart, dedication. It probably doesn’t matter if they win or lose. Within that framework, director Geramy Jasper’s first feature film is pretty entertaining. Patti is charming and relatable. She’s filled simultaneously with self-confidence and selfdoubt. Australian actress Danielle Macdonald gives one of those performances where it would be difficult to imagine anyone else playing the role: like Tony Soprano or Napoleon Dynamite. The story takes place in a fully developed world of suburban New Jersey’s hell of highways, parking lots and gas stations.
Jasper, who also wrote the script, imbues the world with subtle attention to detail and tough love for his characters that reminds me a bit of Mike Leigh. But ultimately, Patti Cake$ is a simple story done well, with lively performances and positive energy. (R Mitchell Miller) Violet Crown, R, 108 min.
EL SALVADOR: ANOTHER VIETNAM AND ATOMIC ARTIST
+ RELEVANT THEN, RELEVANT NOW - GRAINY IMAGES AND POOR SOUND QUALITY
Pop culture and school curriculum have long collided to make sure modern Americans know the visual landscape of the jungles of Vietnam and the olive drab of the US fighting men during its protracted and life-taking involvement there. But not everyone is mindful that a few years later, our nation’s ceaseless thirst for control led to extensive US support for military leaders in El Salvador amid a vast rebellion from the peasant class. This documentary double feature from the way-back machine leads off with El Salvador: Another Vietnam which, during its 1981 debut, was an edgy firsthand look at the Central America civil war over the economic stronghold of the coffee oligarchy.

shot much of the 53 minutes of footage as the story was breaking, from refugee camps and urban warfare campaigns to the streets of Washington, DC, and the halls of Congress. Listen carefully as US Rep. Clarence Long makes his point: “I’m worried about whether this is being done not because it’s needed but because we have an administration that’s made a bunch of macho statements and now feels that it ought to follow through on them.” Don’t crunch your popcorn too loudly, as the words might become inaudible; old film makes for poor sound quality. But don’t make for the door—settle in for part two, much closer to home. Meet Tony Price, known for his sculptures from the detritus of discarded parts at Los Alamos National Laboratory, who narrates his own story as he picks through a public salvage yard and explains what compels him to create from a legacy of destruction. These 27 minutes from 1982 are interlaced with footage from atomic test sites and artfully presented with the movement and sounds that convey Price’s vision from three sensory paths.

+ FEELS GREAT - REALLY ONLY SCRATCHES THE SURFACE
Director Amanda Lipitz has come a long way from her days as producer for the Legally Blonde musical. Now she presents Step, a documentary examining the lives of young women juggling their step dance team and the pursuit of college acceptance during their final year at a Baltimore school for girls. Lipitz zeroes in on three disparate and distinct voices: Cori, the over-achiever hoping for a full ride to Johns Hopkins University; Tayla, a relatively average student with an intense mother; and Blessin, the founder of the step team with a fiery personality that hides great sadness. Lipitz sets the stage against the backdrop of the 2015 police murder of Freddie Grey, but other than some peripheral mentions of the tragedy and an emotionally flat field trip to Grey’s memorial with the step coach leading the way, the underlying theme is lost in the shuffle. We do, however, understand that as young black women living at or below the poverty line, the doc’s main subjects are at a disadvantage—but we’re left to simply know that, as Lipitz never digs much deeper into the matter than “They’ve got it hard; step dance is the escape, college the light at the end of the tunnel.”
AUGUST 30-SEPTEMBER 5, 2017
You’re running out of chances to see El Salvador: Another Vietnam.
It’s a bleak picture and an often-heavy experience as we come to know the young girls and root for both their step team during competitions and their potential successes as students. When 100 percent of their senior class graduated from the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, the reaction feels exaggerated, but the college counselor and principal of the school care so much and try so hard that we can’t help but get swept up in their ethics and efforts. It would have been nice to find out where the girls are today or even to have gotten a clearer idea of their home lives or trials and tribulations, and Step does come perilously close to emotionally manipulative. Still, there is an ultimate message of positivity and hard work that’s impossible to deny, and ample sentimental satisfaction that comes from knowing even those who struggle with intense adversity and systematic oppression can make their way and make their mark. (Alex De Vore) Center for Contemporary Arts, PG, 83 min.
THE DARK TOWER
+ SUPER-COOL IDEA - SUPER-UNCOOL EXECUTION
A moment comes towards the end of The Dark Tower—Stephen King’s eight-novel series come to life on the big screen—when a thought occurs: “Are they really ending this already? What the hell?” Indeed, the long-percolating project from director Nikolaj Arcel (better known as writer for the original Swedish production of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) crams so very much into so very little time that practically everything suffers, not least of which is the pacing. We follow a young boy named Jake (Tom Taylor) who, in the wake of his father’s death, has started having dream visions of a man in another world who’s hell-bent on destroying this mysterious dark tower that, like, stops demons from breaking into the multiverse somehow … or something. Of course, everyone from his mom to his therapist to his shit-heel stepdad (or mom’s boyfriend or whatever) doesn’t believe that the vi-
sions are real. Jake sure is persistent, though, and when he busts into that other world through some sci-fi portal machine, it turns out he was right the whole time and he’s got psychic superpowers that amount to some sort of telepathic communication ability. An ancient battle was fought and lost here between the Man in Black (a seemingly bored Matthew McConaughey) and the Gunslingers, an ancient order of knights. It is eluded to that they might be related to Arthurian legend somehow … or something. Roland (aka the Gunslinger; Idris Elba, who makes a sincere go of it) is the last of the order, and having also lost his father (plus his buddies), he identifies with and joins Jake to stop the destruction of the tower and kill the Man in Black. If it sounds cool, that’s because it could have been. But with so much source material and a relatively short running time, we don’t have a chance to care for anyone before the Man in Black’s cartoonish super-villainy gets out of hand. McConaughey plays this in a too-calm-and-collected sort of way, which could say something about how he’s so evil he doesn’t even bother with emotions, but mostly it feels lacking in drama. Oh, there are neat little visual tricks that show how the Gunslinger is super-good at reloading his guns in various ways, but the threats never seem particularly perilous and the Man in Black’s motives boil down to “he’s just evil” … or something. The Dark Tower could have easily been twoplus hours and far more awesome; hell, it could have been two or three movies. In fact, it should have been. But if we had to guess, it’ll probably do pretty poorly and wind up on the cinematic ash heap forgotten to time ... or something. (ADV) Regal, Violet Crown, PG-13, 95 min.
+ THERE’S NO LOVE STORY - YOU CAN SEE THE PLOT TWISTS COMING FROM A MILE AWAY
It’s 1989 at the height of Cold War. The Iron Curtain still hangs and things are kind of freaky in East Berlin. In short, it ain’t good. But as the opening credits shout in graffiti, “This isn’t that story.” Based on the 1989 Antony Johnston/ Sam Hart graphic novel The Coldest City, the film Atomic Blonde follows MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) who is sent to Berlin to recover “the list,” highly coveted intel naming double-agents. Among that list is “Satchel,” a double agent for the Queen and for the Soviets, wanted by the Allies for treason. Broughton’s mission: recover the list and expose

Satchel’s identity. Along the way, she meets the shady David Percival (James McAvoy), a fellow agent who indulges in the hedonistic underground culture of East Berlin. The two work together to evacuate Spyglass (Eddie Marsan), the good-guy Stasi officer who has committed the list to memory, and is the Allies’ last shot at obtaining the information. With a steel-gray and neon palette accompanied by classic ’80s music from the likes of Depeche Mode, David Bowie and The Cure, Atomic Blonde is aesthetically a lot of fun. But while the production gets a lot right about the ’80s (as a millennial I can only assume), the hair, makeup and costumes felt more contemporary. But maybe that’s not a bad thing; there’s only so much pleather you can wear before it gets tacky. Theron plays an excellent heartless and calculating spy while McAvoy is her scruffy, ambivalent, wayward counterpart. And while Atomic Blonde is certainly entertaining, it’s a bit predictable. However, the fight choreography and and gorgeous cinematography make up for some of the substance the plot lacks. Atomic Blonde is a treat on the big screen, but it’s not a necessity. Maybe save a few bucks and enjoy Theron’s ass-kicking at home in a few months. (Lauren Thompson) Regal, Violet Crown, R, 115 min.
truths before the credits roll. It is, in fact, somewhat rare to see a mainstream film that deviates from the cinematic formula, but Nolan doesn’t let up for an instant. From the terrifying desperation of those stranded on the beach to a shell-shocked soldier (Cillian Murphy of Netflix series Peaky Blinders as well as Nolan’s Batman films) too broken to return to battle and a selfless dogfighter (Tom Hardy) barely hobbling along in the sky, dialogue becomes sparse compared to the frantic reality of sinking ships, dropped shells and the cruelty of the human survival instinct. Of course, there are only so many times you can see a bunch of soldiers abandon a ship, and the jarring nature of the heaving seas becomes nearly as difficult to watch as the violence. Still, moving performances from Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh—not to mention a surprisingly natural turn from Harry Styles (yeah, from One Direction)—remain a joy to watch, and the utter unfairness and brutality of war hang heavy over every last scene. This isn’t just one of the best war movies in recent memory, it’s one that will no doubt be shown in schools and referred to forever as an artful depiction of one of the ugliest chapters in human history. (ADV) Regal, Violet Crown, R, 106 min.
+ RELENTLESS YET BEAUTIFUL - LOTS OF PEOPLE JUMPING OFF SHIPS
In 1940, near the start of World War II, the Allied forces suffered a tremendous defeat against German troops in the town of Dunkirk in France. Subsequently, 300,000 soldiers would be evacuated by military and civilian watercraft, but not before immeasurable losses. It’s a harrowing tale not known to many who aren’t WWII buffs before now, but in Christopher Nolan’s sprawling yet concisely told Dunkirk, we see the tragic events play out with a relentless pace and attention to detail. We follow three main narratives; that of soldiers stranded on a beach waiting for rescue over the period of a week, an hour in the lives of British fighter pilots, and a single day for a civilian pleasure yacht captain who helps retrieve said soldiers alongside his son and his son’s friend. Nolan presents an off-kilter look at each timeline, weaving in and out of the stories, though Dunkirk never feels disjointed. Rather, as bits and pieces from each angle are revealed, we begin to understand the incredible scope of the evacuation and just how lucky the survivors really were, though we’re faced with some hard

MIND BODY SPIRIT
Week of August 30thth
ARIES (March 21-April 19): ”We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems,” said businessman Lee Iacocca. You are currently wrestling with an example of this phenomenon, Aries. The camouflage is well-rendered. To expose the opportunity hidden beneath the apparent dilemma, you may have to be more strategic and less straightforward than you usually are—cagier and not as blunt. Can you manage that? I think so. Once you crack the riddle, taking advantage of the opportunity should be interesting.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The sadness you feel might be the most fertile sadness you have felt in a long time. At least potentially, it has tremendous motivating power. You could respond to it by mobilizing changes that would dramatically diminish the sadness you feel in the coming years, and also make it less likely that sadness-provoking events will come your way. So I invite you to express gratitude for your current sadness. That’s the crucial first step if you want to harness it to work wonders.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Don’t hoot with the owls TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Close your eyes and imag- at night if you want to crow with the rooster in the ine this: You and a beloved ally get lost in an enchanted morning,” advised Miss Georgia during the Miss Teen forest, discover a mysterious treasure, and find your way USA Pageant. Although that’s usually good counsel, it back to civilization just before dark. Now visualize this: may not apply to you in the coming weeks. Why? You give a dear companion a photo of your face taken Because your capacity for revelry will be at an all-time on every one of your birthdays, and the two of you high, as will your ability to be energized rather than spend hours talking about your evolution. Picture this: drained by your revelry. It seems you have a special You and an exciting accomplice luxuriate in a sun-lit temporary superpower that enables you both to have sanctuary surrounded by gourmet snacks as you listen maximum fun and get a lot of work done. to ecstatic music and bestow compliments on each other.

That can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not Virgin Sky, the band covers another tune I co-wrote, ‘making friends and influencing people.’ That is flattery. “Dark Ages.” Have I received a share of the record Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, sales? Not a penny. Am I upset? Not at all. I’m glad raising a person’s performance to a higher standard, the songs are being heard and enjoyed. I’m gratified building a personality beyond its normal limitations.” that a world-famous, multi-platinum band chose to record them. I’m pleased my musical creations are appreciated. Now here’s my question for you, Gemini: Has some good thing of yours been “borrowed”? Have you wielded a benevolent influence that hasn’t been fully acknowledged? I suggest you consider adopting an approach like mine. It’s prime time to adjust your thinking about how your gifts and talents have been used, applied, or translated.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “One should always be a little improbable,” said Oscar Wilde. That’s advice I wouldn’t normally give a Capricorn. You thrive on being grounded and straightforward. But I’m making an exception now. The astrological omens compel me. So what does it mean, exactly? How might you be “improbable”? Here are suggestions to get you started. 1. Be on the lookout for inspiring ways to surprise yourself. 2. Elude any warped expectations that people CANCER (June 21-July 22): Author Roger von Oech tells us that creativity often involves “the ability to take have of you. 3. Be willing to change your mind.

In the Order the Association’s judgment as secured by the Real Property as of April 5, 2017 was $34,053.16 (“Association’s April 5, 2017 Judgment”). The Association’s April 5, 2017 Judgement has and will continue to accrue interest, and additional costs and expenses and reasonable attorney’s fees arising from collection of it until satisfied plus any remaining attorney fees and costs accruing prior to the date of sale. The Association and/or its assignee may apply all or any part of its judgment to the purchase price in lieu of cash. The Association and/or its assignee has the right to bid at such sale and submit its bid verbally or in writing. Proceeds of the sale shall first apply to the costs of sale, including the Special Master’s fee, for any costs incurred for the maintenance and protection of the property, including those not included in the Association’s judgment, and then to the Association for its judgment, which will include additional amounts from the Association’s April 5, 2017 Judgment. If the sale results in a winning bid that exceeds the Association’s judgement, then those amounts will be put into
the Court’s registry and paid to all remaining parties as their respective interests may appear. The Plaintiff or other lien holders at the time of the sale may have obtained judgments against the Property which may authorize them to bid in judgment amounts in lieu of cash but to date no such judgments have been entered. The sale will or may be affected by the Court’s Order after hearing on September 27, 2017 and may be postponed and rescheduled at the discretion of the undersigned Special Master. The sale is subject to the entry of an order of the Court approving the terms and conditions of this sale. The purchaser at such sale shall take title to the above described real property subject to Defendant Jyl DeHaven’s nine month right of redemption. /s/ Jonathan Morse Jonathan Morse, Special Master P.O.
