The Trump presidency presents massive, new threats to the protection of civil rights and liberties, long under assault—but also entirely new political opportunities.
Eileen Myles is the author of more than a dozen volumes of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including Snowflake/different streets, Sorry, Tree, Chelsea Girls, Not Me, Skies, Cool for You, The Importance of Being Iceland: Travel Essays in Art, and Inferno: A Poet’s Novel, winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction. Her autobiographical novel Chelsea Girls, originally published in 1994 and reissued in 2015, brings together snapshot-like memories from her 1960s Catholic upbringing with an alcoholic father, her difficult teen years, her committed embrace of lesbianism, and her life as a poet in 1970s New York, which she describes as “a glowing cord of drunkenness and sex.”
Glenn Greenwald is an investigative journalist and author. A former constitutional lawyer, he founded the online global media outlet The Intercept with Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill in 2014. He is the author of several best sellers—most recently No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the US Surveillance State. He is the recipient of numerous awards for his investigative journalism and was named one of the top 100 Global Thinkers for 2013 by Foreign Policy magazine. He is a recipient of the 2011 Lannan Cultural Freedom Award. Greenwald will speak about “Political Trends and Civil Liberties in the Trump Era.”

GLORIFIED BABYSITTERS? I am a foster parent. If there have been any improvements at CYFD, they have been so minor they have barely touched on fixing the mess. As a foster parent, I do not have a voice with CYFD—no one is hearing or even attempting to listen. The affect that the system has on the children removed from their homes is horrible, but there is no system for the foster parents to speak. There is no forum, there is no chain of command made available, there is nothing in place to give or accept suggestions; we are out there doing the dirty work with next to no support from CYFD and no one is asking us for feedback. We are silent, the state’s babysitters. ... Believe me, Monique Jacobson is not talking to any foster parent that has complained about the system; she will be put in touch with those who buy into the system, those who know from experience that they will get nothing positive from saying anything negative.

Women’s March on Washington In DC and at home, the women of New Mexico are ready to stand up
BY KIM JONES i n t e r n @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
omen’s rights are human rights. Everybody’s rights are human rights. Everybody matters, everybody has equal importance in this world,” says local activist Amanda Flory. “And that’s what we’re going to Washington to say.” Flory tells SFR she’s been involved in politics since she was 3 years old, when she sat on her parents’ shoulders in Lamy during a protest against the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Flory, the Lamy native turned Albuquerque Underground ’Zine music writer, plans to be among tens of thousands who gather in the nation’s capital the day after the presidential inauguration to demonstrate. When Flory heard about the nationally organized Women’s March on Washington on Jan. 21, she decided to organize a larger New Mexican group to attend. “You know… Power in numbers,” she tells SFR. Next, Flory got in touch with Samia Assed, the president of the board of the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, who then helped her coordinate hotel rooms, bus tickets, protest permits, police protection and fundraising for those who wanted to attend but couldn’t afford the cost. They raised money
through bake sales, raffles, house parties and knitting to ensure as many New Mexicans could march as possible. Now, about 200 people plan to embark on the 27-hour bus trip, and over 200 more are traveling by plane. Flory tells SFR she feels like the march is a way to let Trump know who he works for. “He is not representing us well,” she says. “He is destroying all of our alliances around the world that are vital, that we have been building up for years. He has disrespected women more than I can say and it’s just not a world I want to see for my nieces, nephews and godson.” Can’t make it to DC to fight for basic human rights? No problem—Lindsay Conover has it covered. With a little help from her friends, the Santa Fe organizer made sure New Mexico’s capital city is in on the action. When Conover watched the election, her shock sent her into a brief depression. But when she heard about the DC event, the astrological counselor sprang into action to arrange a local version. “Our event will ... raise awareness around other organizations that are also fighting for women and human rights,” Conover says. “I am marching because I want a better world for us to live in that honors equality, humanity and justice. For me, this is the first step in that direction.” Marchers should meet on the north side of the Bataan Building on West De Vargas Street between Galisteo Street and Don Gaspar Avenue at 10:30 am on Saturday, Jan. 21. A rally at the Roundhouse starts at noon. For more details, visit wmwsf.net.

The ‘politics’ of wrangling data on the Gila lead state to withhold public information B Y L A U R A PA S K U S , NEW MEXICO POLITICAL REPORT
one-sentence provision in state law is emboldening at least one agency to keep public information from seeing the light of day. All officials have to do is accuse someone of having a political agenda. For more than a year, retired Interstate Stream Commission director Norman Gaume has wanted to know how much water farmers and others currently draw from the Gila River. That’s where the state plans to build a controversial new project that would divert even more water from the river. Specifically, he wondered if water users are using the maximum amount of water they’re already allotted from the river. In December, Gaume filed a public records request to look at ISC reports that show how much water is diverted from and used along the Gila and its tributaries each year. He wanted to see if the on-theground data supports assertions by his former agency that farmers were already using all the water they could—and still needed more. While looking through the bound 2015 report at the ISC’s office in Santa Fe late last year, Gaume read through its printed Excel spreadsheet tables. According to him, those tables contained the information he had been seeking for the past year but had been unable to find—in part because he was having a hard time “making sense of voluminous ISC public records produced as hard copies.” Gaume asked for an unlocked copy of the Excel spreadsheet. With an unlocked copy—instead of a locked copy or a PDF— users can examine the formulas and original data that is used to reach conclusions or achieve results. In its response to his request, the ISC categorized the spreadsheet as a “database.” In order to inspect that database, Gaume was told to sign the agency’s database agreement. That agreement prohibits the requester from making copies or providing the database to anyone without the ISC’s written approval. It also says the database can’t be used for any “political or commercial purpose” without the agency’s approval. The state statute under which Gaume
requested the documents, known as the Inspection of Public Records Act (IPRA), says that the “use of state agency databases for commercial, political or solicitation purposes is restricted.” Breaching the signed agreement carries criminal penalties. Gaume proposed making changes to the three-page agreement the ISC wanted him to sign. Rather than not providing copies of the ISC’s spreadsheet to anyone, he wrote that he would list the names of those with whom he was sharing it. He also added a note that “advocacy use” of the database was not “political.” According to Gaume, the agency refused his suggestions. The ISC did not respond to a request for comment or information for this story.
For Gaume, it was a familiar scenario. Since 2014, he has been an outspoken critic of his former agency and has opposed the state’s plans to build a diversion on the Gila River. “Twice before the ISC has refused to give me a spreadsheet,” Gaume said last week. Both times, he was trying to see how staff had achieved the results presented to the commission and the public. In both those earlier instances, once he finally had unlocked versions of the spreadsheets, he revealed problems with the state’s plans on the Gila. According to the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government executive di-

rector Peter St. Cyr, requiring someone to sign a release saying a database won’t be used for “political purposes” is a violation of the First Amendment. “The fact is that a citizen can redress their government anytime they want,” he said. “Those are fundamental rights we have as citizens in a democracy.” He added that the agreement to not use information for political reasons seems to show public officials don’t want to be scrutinized. Susan Boe, a retired attorney who preceded St. Cyr as executive director of NMFOG, spent much of her tenure at the government transparency group trying to get the ISC to release documents. Last week, she recalled the agency’s resistance to releasing spreadsheets to Gaume in the past. In late 2014, for instance, Gaume had requested an unlocked spreadsheet related to the flows of the Gila River. When the agency wouldn’t release it, NMFOG filed a “mirror request” for the same spreadsheet. Boe said she was invited to the ISC office in Santa Fe, where staff projected information onto a screen but wouldn’t unlock the data. To receive the unlocked spreadsheet, Boe would have to sign the agreement barring her from sharing it. She refused. Eventually, the ISC posted the unlocked spreadsheet on its website. When Gaume and other analysts identified
and corrected errors in it, they learned that the Gila River doesn’t yield as much water as the ISC previously said. They found that New Mexico’s “new” legal water rights granted by Congress in 2004— 14,000 acre feet per year—exceed what the river can actually yield. Boe finds two things about the disclosure agreement particularly troublesome. “In the case of the ISC, we’ve got them in recording and on paper, two years ago, saying, ‘We know you’re going to use this for political purposes,’” she said. “Well, I couldn’t tell you if [Gaume is] a Democrat or a Republican, but if ‘political’ means ‘against the Gila River diversion,’ that’s very problematic.” She also doesn’t think the prohibition on using the data for “political purposes” is constitutional—especially if an agency does not refer to political parties, but is instead identifying someone as having an opinion contrary to the agency’s official line. “The second thing is we don’t believe that an Excel spreadsheet is a ‘database,’” Boe said. Boe noted that the agency didn’t release the unlocked spreadsheet until after ISC staff had presented faulty data to the commission and the public. “By releasing it at a pretty late date, it precluded people who are experts in these flowcharts from looking at them and raising the necessary red flags,” she said.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE DIE ANONYMOUSLY EACH YEAR, BUT A PUBLIC DATABASE OFFERS A CHANCE TO NAME SOME OF THE DEAD
JANUARY 11-17, 2017
BY ELIZABETH MILLER o u t d o o r s @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
ifelong rancher Warren Read and his wife, Diane Amatore, were driving their ranch east of Las Vegas to check on their cattle when they spotted about 20 crows circling in the December sky above the property’s western fence line. Read knew the spiraling black wings often signal death below, so they headed toward the site to see if the previous week’s cold weather had cost them a calf. Instead, they found the prone and naked form of a dead man. “There wasn’t anything to it. I go out and check my cattle every day and when we see crows and stuff like that pawing around, we go out and see what it is, and that’s when we found him,” Read says. “That’s all I know to tell you.” Wherever he’d been before, the man’s death—alone and in the cold—highlights the vagaries of naming some of the nation’s dead and matching them up to unsolved missing persons cases that have left families without answers and resolution. In New Mexico, there are an estimated 265 open missing persons cases, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, known as NamUs. Nationally, that number reaches to more than 12,700.
The National Institute of Justice, run by the US Department of Justice, and the Unidentified Decedents Database launched NamUs in May 2006 to address what was then seen as an epidemic: these many unsolved missing persons cases. The goal was to expand access to information previously restricted to law enforcement agencies, and provide a tool for those most motivated to find a missing person, namely that person’s family, who can then search for clues and reports on unidentifiable remains. “NamUs can be used by essentially anyone, which is kind of the beauty of it,” says Melissa Gregory, regional administrator for NamUs. So far, NamUs has aided in closing 1,500 of the 11,900 closed cases nationwide. The database has three components, two for public use and one just for medical examiners and coroners dealing with individuals who are deceased and identified but no next of kin has been located. The two for public use provide case details for people who are missing and remains that have been found but not identified. Anyone can enter a missing person into the database, though that listing doesn’t go live until someone with NamUs reviews and verifies it. Only medical examiners and coroners can enter listings for people who are unidentified, but that information becomes publicly viewable on the website.
NamUs can be used by essentially anyone, which is kind of the beauty of it. -Melissa Gregory, regional administrator for NamUs
never hit on one another. Most labs only have the capability to handle STRs, and only a handful of labs do mitochondrial profiles. The University of North Texas, where remains from New Mexico are sent for processing, is one of the mitochondrial labs, meaning both samples, if available, will be collected from bodies sent there. Mitochondrial DNA can only come from a maternal relative of a missing person, but at times, depending on how degraded remains have become, may be the only option for collection from the body found. But that means if a son is searching for his father, the two samples won’t hit on one another in the DNA database. “Because of those types of nuances, the biometrics isn’t a be-all end-all,” Gregory says. “On top of that, we don’t have all of these biometrics. … Some [law enforcement] agencies are more receptive than others. There’s agencies that are way busier than others, so they might not get back to us as quickly as possible. … How NamUs can really assist is it might prompt the gathering of biometrics a little more, or it might encourage investigators on either the unidentified or missing side to participate a little more because they have a potential match or a suggestCONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE
“We’ve got a lot of people who deem themselves to be web sleuths, and so somebody like them or even a family member of a missing person can always go on the unidentified side and run searches based on specific demographics or circumstances or a time frame, location, et cetera, and see if any of those unidentified remains might match up to the missing person,” Gregory says. “We’ll get an email from the individual saying, ‘Hey, I think this is a possible match.’” Following an investigation into the thousands of unidentified deceased people in the country by Reveal, an investigative news website and podcast from the Center for Investigative Reporting, the 47-year-old mystery of “Mountain Jane Doe,” a 21-year-old woman found stabbed to death on a trail in Kentucky, was finally resolved and the woman identified. Reveal also created an app that allows for simultaneously searching records for those found and those missing in hopes of increasing matches. Investigators review suggestions from the public and look for a way to use biometric data—something like DNA or dental records—to make exclusions or identifications. While the main goal would be to bring a missing person home, Gregory says, identification can at least bring families answers and some closure. But there are a lot of hitches to this system. Take the well-known local case
of Robbie Romero. A 7-year-old boy who was last seen walking between his friend’s house and his own home in June 2000 could turn up as a 7-year-old body found 16 years ago, or as a 23-year-old found this year. He’s in the NamUs database. As is Wayland Johle, a 43-year-old Native American man last seen in July in a park in Farmington and thought to perhaps be on his way to the Salt Lake City area. And Edward Hoag, a 55-year-old white male, long homeless by choice but consistent in his calls to his family, who traveled to Oregon looking for work and last called home on June 10 with word he was headed “back south,” which was interpreted as back to Truth or Consequences, and has not been heard from since. And Holly Alcott White, a 49-year-old woman last seen in Taos on May 5, who did not turn up for plans to walk with a friend two days later, and whose car was found near the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. Those records are generous in their detail around the circumstances of the person’s disappearance. Some are so spare they include little more than the date and town last seen, and only hints at the family’s lingering questions. “It is unknown if her disappearance is a result of foul play or if she is missing voluntarily,” reads the record for Eva Serna-Barela, a 52-year-old Hispanic woman last known to reside in Las Cruces. Scars, tattoos, and skeletal details like a previously broken collarbone can all be listed as part of the identifying information, but basic descriptors can also derail a search of the system. A person’s family may not know about a tattoo, or eye color may not be distinguishable by the time a body is recovered. “Those are just some of the challenges that the general public might face because they might not even realize something like that when they’re running searches for a possible match,” Gregory says. So, forensic efforts often focus on what doesn’t change, like DNA, dental records and fingerprints. DNA from family members of a missing person and from unidentified remains will be entered into a database that constantly checks each of those sides against one another, searching for possible matches. Dental records can also produce identifications without needing DNA—and that’s good, because DNA runs into its own limitations. It can be collected in two forms, short tandem repeats (STRs) and mitochondrial, and if investigators collected one type from the body found and a different type from relatives reporting a missing person, they’ll

Reade key fob. When they went to move the tarp, they found a human skull. In May, a couple stopped near an arroyo in Lordsburg to let their dog urinate, and it found a body. Local police officers said they had contact with the decedent six months previous, and that he was “waiting for a bike tube he had ordered from Western Auto,” the NamUs report reads. “Once he received the tube, he would be on his way. Officers also stated that decedent was positioned in the same position as when they spoke to him in December.” Photos of his belongings include a couple coins and some folded
ed match, and we get information to compare between the two.” The NamUs listings for New Mexico include a bevy of cases that offer few, if any, hints to their identities and little hope of being solved. “It’s tough—there’s really no percentage we can really give of the odds,” Gregory says.

The man wearing this sweatshirt was found dead at the same location near Lordsburg where police had spoken to him months earlier. His identity remains a mystery.

No one knows how a man found in December of 2015 near this spot outside Las Vegas, New Mexico, got there or where he came from.
dollar bills, a screwdriver, a watch and a shirt embroidered with the name Jason and “The Rockville Valley Fertilizer Company.” As if just to prove the point of how many cases like this exist, SFR’s initial inquiry to the Office of the Medical Examiner about the body on the ranch returned reports for a different set of remains, also located in December 2015. In that case, three arm bones were found by a bridge near Gallup, a few hundred yards from where a partial skeleton that was missing its arms had been found a year before. That skeleton had been identified; whether the arm bones belonged to it had not been confirmed when the report was completed. The NamUs database also includes listings for a skull given to the Salvation Army after a storage locker was cleaned out. Bones a hunter spotted scattered across a ranch near Wagon Mound. Skeletal remains a camper located under a large rock near Aztec. After a trailer fire in Edgewood, a white male in his 70s was discovered charred on his bed with a .38 caliber revolver with one spent casing in the cylinder. That report promises “more investigation when snow clears.” Skeletal remains were found in a shallow grave near Rio Puerco with fibers and pieces of ceramic. The report notes no obvious signs of modern origin. That’s the other snag—sometimes the bones that surface
are from burials that have been dug up or flooded out, and no one is searching for that person. The chance of identification, in those cases, is slim. “If nobody has submitted the DNA or reported a person missing or anything along those lines, yet we have unidentified remains—if nobody in the scientific aspect of missing persons is aware of that missing person—it’s never going to be identified,” Gregory says. “There’s nothing to compare it to.” What people most often seem to misunderstand, other than the intricacies of how DNA collection and comparison works, is the speed at which these things move forward. “People think that things move a lot quicker than is actually possible,” Gregory says. “Resources are, of course, a big issue, just like they are for anybody in the criminal justice arena.” The other presumption, she says, is that if people searching through NamUs don’t see a photo or don’t see that DNA or prints have been collected, they’ll assume law enforcement isn’t working the case. Sometimes, photos just aren’t available, or there’s no known family, so DNA isn’t an option. If the person had no criminal record and never applied for a concealed carry permit, their fingerprints may not be on file. Maybe no one knows who someone’s dentist was, making it impossible to get dental information.
“Those are the types of challenges from the biometrics side of things or for finishing out a case that investigators face,” Gregory says. “I think the public might make assumptions when those things are missing from a case that somebody’s just not working on it or not doing their jobs, when there’s usually a lot more behind why that information might not be there.” Thirteen months after Read found a body on his ranch, that man is still listed on the NamUs database. The law enforcement investigation and subsequent autopsy failed to provide any answers as to who this man had been, where he came from or how he died. Read’s initial call to police at 10:48 am on Dec. 6, 2015, went to Patrolman Gene Pretlow Jr., who was sent by dispatch in Las Vegas to respond to what was then characterized as an unattended death off State Road 104. Half an hour later, he met Read and Amatore at the entrance to their property. They led him to the body, just over a mile north from the gate off the state road, past a red barn. Read told responding officers he’d been nearby three weeks prior and the body wasn’t there. Both he and Amatore said they didn’t have any idea who the man was, nor did they know of anyone missing in the area. The remains had, by then, been severely preyed upon by animals. Pretlow reported he thought the body appeared to be that of a middle-aged male, though decomposition and scavenging by “the numerous birds on scene” and “unknown carnivore(s)” impeded definitive statements. He radioed back to dispatch by 11:30 am that this was an active crime scene, and that he was “unable to determine if foul play was involved.” At 12:41 pm, the investigations bureau asked Agent Ryan Boone to join Pretlow and NMSP Investigations Bureau Agent

William Mora, who was the case agent for the investigation and by that time was already on scene. (Repeated requests for an interview with the New Mexico State Police officers involved were met only with word from Sgt. Chad Pierce, the State Police spokesman, that the request had been forwarded along. As of press time, months later, approval was still pending.) Boone’s report describes the man’s body lying on a diagonal line, his head toward the southwest, his chest covered with what appeared to be bird feces. Pieces of bone were exposed where organs and skin had been scavenged, and his eyes and other distinguishing features were missing. Among the items collected from the scene were three pieces of white cloth, possibly a t-shirt or underpants, stained with what was suspected to be blood and bird feces. All evidence was sent to a temporary locker in Las Vegas. The Office of the Medical Investigator sent Lloyd Ellis, who pronounced time of death at 6:50 pm, and rolled the man’s body over to reveal a tattoo on his right shoulder blade: a by-then mottled rendition of an iconic Led Zeppelin image, the angel wings and upstretched arms still distinguishable. By 7:45 pm, nine hours after the call went in to state police, the body was removed from the scene by a local mortuary. The man’s remains then traveled to Albuquerque, to the Office of the Medical Investigator at the University of New Mexico. The OMI did not respond to requests for an interview. The medical examiner’s report describes a well-developed male, roughly 5 feet 9 inches tall. After extensive animal depredation removed much of the organ and body tissue, the corpse weighed just 85 pounds. What damage was left to be observed could have been attributed to a number of causes: a heart attack, environmental exposure, drug overdose or lethal injury among them. A toxicology screening for a bevy of drugs detected none.
“Because the examination is limited by postmortem changes, the cause and manner of death are best certified as undetermined,” Dr. Veena Singh, a medical investigator and certified forensic pathologist, wrote in the autopsy report. The 24-page death investigation report describes a thin man with short, blond hair, a blond beard and mustache, eyes a color that could not be determined, and missing teeth. In addition to the Led Zeppelin image, his tattoos included an “Oriental character” on his left upper back, and the letters B and C and a dolphin on his right shoulder. Mora, who attended the autopsy, reported Singh told him that while there wasn’t anything overtly suspicious on the body, by then, that evidence could have been obscured. He made a note of checking for missing persons in the area, and that none matched the individual found. He also called the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute to ask about recent releases, and was denied that information on the basis of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Adult Protective Services similarly did not have any information on clients missing in the area, nor did they know of anyone who matched the man’s description. The reality is that without someone actively searching for him from the other end, without someone to notice that he’s gone, it’s unlikely those who found and retrieved him will ever know who he was. Perhaps more disconcerting is how unsurprised Read—one rancher, running his cows through his own small corner of the state—was to find a body amid the circling birds and frozen ground at the edge of his property. “That’s not the first time that’s happened,” he says. “Down through the years we’ve had several of them.” He couldn’t say for sure exactly where they’d come from or whether anyone had ever figured out who they were.

Ian Shive’s photographs are meant to make you pause and consider BY ELIZABETH MILLER o u t d o o r s @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
or two weeks’ worth of days spread over more than decade, landscape photographer Ian Shive braved sandstorms, a flash flood sweeping through his camp and blistering desert heat to pursue an image of White Sands that captured the light and palette of New Mexico loved by many and immortalized in Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings. “It’s not really a technical achievement—it’s a mental achievement,” he says of a career spent waiting out storms and chasing their perfect conditions for a photograph. The resulting homage of the white dunes catches them in near black-andwhite relief, a skim of sand blowing off
the surface mottling a bluebird horizon. It now hangs in Edition One Gallery, one of 20 images selected for the artist’s first solo exhibition, Wilderness and the National Parks, a chance to show the landscapes he makes just for the love of it. “You always want people to think and care, but I don’t have to go and overtly signal that connection,” he says. “Artistically, you can have a moment and let that be a little more subtle, and that’s what the show is.” Shive’s work often aligns itself with conservation-minded projects or work documenting our nation’s iconic wild places, as done in his latest book, The National Parks: An American Legacy. He hopes these landscapes, devoid of people and almost surreally serene, will slow down the double-tap-and-scroll-on approach. “There’s sort of a permanence, or at least a longer connection, with these places and I think that’s kind of neat in the digital age,” he says. “It’s not really my thing to say, ‘What’s going to get us the most followers?’ but, ‘What’s the thing people are going to connect with the most?’” His career has taken him to all 50 states, capturing images of national parks, wilderness areas and national monuments. Those images illustrate what’s at stake in nonprofit-run calls to action. “It’s to try to educate and inspire people to feel a connection to the place so that when they see these organizations they might support, they better understand what they have to lose,” he says. “I don’t think people care about losing something they might not relate to.” He worked in the last year on the

campaign to expand the protected area around the Grand Canyon, which has been threatened with development (including potential uranium mines, proposed mega-malls and a restaurant at the bottom of the canyon accessed by aerial tram). That hasn’t seen action from the president yet, but Obama did move to expand the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, a geographic area Shive continues to work on and document. He works from the perspective of increasing understanding of these Pacific islands—which are farther away from Hawaii than Missoula, Montana, is from Los Angeles. Much of that work has centered around Midway Atoll, located within the monument, which was the site of the World War II turning point naval Battle of Midway, which marks is 75th anniversary this coming June. “It’s a remarkably beautiful despite wars and bombs and battles and everything else we throw at it,” Shive says. “It’s an incredible place, which I think is sort of a symbol for the resiliency of our planet in many ways.” That island is also plagued by a problem that started in so many of our homes: plastic trash that works its way to the ocean, where it fills the stomachs of sea-

birds and washes ashore. While Obama has used his last weeks in office to preserve more land, recently designating the Bears Ears and Gold Butte national monuments to protect lands in Utah and Nevada that hold Native American archaeological and ancestral sites, the incoming administration is, at best, described as a wild card in the conservation category. But despite that transition, Shive’s position remains steady. “The work we do continues to be important, regardless of who’s in office,” he says. “It’s important to educate, inform, analyze, understand the science—I think that doesn’t change. … We all have to wait and see, but based on all indications and all signs of what we do know, it’s just going to further galvanize our mission and the importance of continuing to educate people as much as we possibly can about places and issues.” WILDERNESS AND THE NATIONAL PARKS Through Feb. 3.

WORD On Jan. 15, writers across the country from all genres and backgrounds will gather at Writers Resist events to read and call for a return to decency, and Santa Fe is set to take part. “After the recent election being so difficult and toxic, it’s important for writers to embrace the ideals of a true and just society,” poet Arthur Sze says. Event co-organizer/writer Dana Levin agrees. “When we enter a period like this, we need to hear from our artists,” she says. The event is free, but attendees can donate to Esperanza Shelter for Battered Families and/or New Energy Economy, an organization focused on future clean and sustainable energy. (Alex De Vore)

Hard Content Half of local art collective SCUBA branches out Crockett Bodelson has carried a case of drawing paper and a marker with him since he was a child. The case—the red plastic kind his Legos came in—is the artist’s way of being ready in an instant. Inspiration comes to Bodelson in that right-now kind of way, at a bar or over dinner, and he creates drawings on the spot. These creations are featured in his upcoming solo exhibit, My One Trick Pony Never Became Famous. Bodelson is perhaps best known as one half of local art collective SCUBA, which he runs with his life partner Sandra Wang. Thus far, his creative ventures within the collective have leaned toward collaborative installation pieces, which makes his upcoming solo show of drawings a departure and new chapter in several ways. “[Sandra and I] are trying to explore our individualities,” he says. “SCUBA has always taken the limelight from both of us as individuals.” This new exhibit features Bodelson’s drawings on 8-by-11-inch sheets of printer paper. Each displays a graphic image created with Sharpie and matched with a saying that slaps you with its simultaneous familiarity and originality, achieving the difficult task of forcing the view-
er to see something old in a new light. Bodelson says he is sometimes inspired to draw in moments of anger or sadness. “If I can record a document of my emotion, and then later go back and figure out what I was thinking, I feel like that’s all you can do,” he says. “We self-analyze, but we don’t have any hard content; that’s what this is. It’s a hard copy of that moment.” One particular Bodelson drawing conveys his thesis perfectly with two simple figures standing at the edge of a cliff, with the words “what if I pushed him” emblazoned beneath. “We’ve all had this thought, you know?” Bodelson says. “It’s not wrong. It’s the truth. If we don’t write that down, if I can’t go back and look at it, I think I am going to keep having that thought, but now I can go back and be at peace with it—it’s a joke.” (Maria Egolf-Romero) MY ONE TRICK PONY NEVER BECAME FAMOUS OPENING RECEPTION 5-7 pm Friday Jan. 13.

New Mexico Platinum Music Awards nominations are now open
eople always seem to talk about the plethora of tremendous musicians operating in the state, and the New Mexico Music Commission is ready and raring to celebrate some of these fine creators with the upcoming Platinum Music Awards at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in July. “We’re basically going to recognize lifetime achievement; the elder statesmen of New Mexico music,” president of the New Mexico Music Commission Foundation and chairman of the awards, David Schwartz, tells SFR. The New Mexico Music Commission was technically founded in 2005 but wasn’t a part of state statute until 2009. It operates as part of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and its overall mission is to promote and preserve music created in the state and to develop opportunities for appreciation and education throughout New Mexico. The Platinum Music Awards is the evolution of the commission’s Platinum Achievement Awards, established in 2013, which also recognized musicians, though its current iteration is a bit more involved and fleshed out. “It’s a lot like the Kennedy Center Honors,” Schwartz says, referencing the awards ceremony that recognizes the lasting legacy a musician has formed in the industry. If it sounds a lot like the similarly named and arguably more well-known New Mexico Music Awards, that’s
because it is—though the process is different and it doesn’t cost anything for submissions or nominees. The period for nominations is open through Feb. 15, and any individuals, businesses or organizations may nominate deserving musicians or industry pros. “They don’t have to have been born here, but they’d need a substantial part of their career to have taken place in New Mexico,” Schwartz says. “What we’re trying to do is identify musical art in the state at the highest level, and we want to see deserving people rise to the top.” This also means that nominations are not limited to just players and/or writers themselves. “Some of the nominees may not be musicians per se,” Schwartz points out. “They could be someone who is influential to the music of New Mexico, like an opera director or a professor at UNM. … It’s really open to anyone who has had an influence, and it’s genre-neutral.” Of course, there’s more to the nominations process than simply typing in a name, and the online form includes provisions for the number of years nominees have lived in the state, the number of years they’ve operated as musicians here and more. Once nominations are closed in February, an anonymous jury of industry experts appointed by the commission will sift through the offerings and name five recipients. Then, come July 25, the Music Commission Foundation (an offshoot of the commission itself ) plans to produce the celebratory event at the Lensic, with plans to benefit the Solace Crisis Treatment Center, a local nonprof-

it that aids and advocates for trauma survivors, and the New Mexico Music Commission. Schwartz says the commission’s cut will go toward music-based educational programs spearheaded by the commission such as Art to Art, a series that invites musicians and visual artists to schools to discuss their artistic processes. “In our strategic plan, there are a number of desirable programs that range from scholarships to bringing music into schools,” Schwartz says. “This could fund many great educational opportunities across the state … We’ve got a long list of plans.” The New Mexico Music Commission is also on the lookout for volunteers to help them continue the good fight. “We’re looking for people who want to get involved at all different levels,” Schwartz adds. “We want people who like the idea of what we’re doing and want to find a place in it. … We’re building.” In the meantime, we’d like to see some unexpected musicians get nominated. Maybe a hip-hop MC or a metal shredder? Either way, this means young people will probably need to get involved and, according to Schwartz, all genres will be considered. “If we end up with something that’s very esoteric, if that’s what the people want to see, then it’s worthy,” he says. “We’re attempting to be a broad-based as we can be.”

CROSSROADS On the eve of the 18th Offroad Productions show, Michael Freed looks back BY J O R DA N E D DY @jordaneddyart
ichael Freed vividly remembers the first time the room hit capacity at Offroad Productions. It was the opening reception of I Want to Believe (Maybe), a group exhibition curated by local artist Erika Wanenmacher in January 2015. “I looked around at one point, and was just like, ‘Oh my god, this is packed,’” Freed says. He ended up recruiting the security guard who was checking IDs at the door to be the de facto bouncer. “It was crazy. When do you see a line to get into a gallery?” he says. At Offroad, it’s happened twice: There was a queue all the way to the street at Tim Jag’s Printed Matter show last January. Once a season for the past five years, Freed has transformed his studio space off Siler Road into one of Santa Fe’s most popular—and fleeting—gallery spaces. He curates a show each July, and engages local creatives to spearhead exhibitions in the winter, spring and fall. Each display is up for a week, hence the notoriously jam-packed openings. On the eve of Offroad’s 18th show, Desperately Seeking Other, Freed took some time to reflect on the formation and ongoing mission of the artistic experiment. Freed is originally from Oklahoma, where he spent summers working the family farm. “I always knew that I wasn’t the same type of man as my dad or my grandfather, or most of the men that I saw,” he says. Freed came out while attending the University of Oklahoma. After getting his BFA, he took a job as the
director of an arts nonprofit for five years before following a boyfriend to San Francisco. “It was not a smart idea,” he says. “I’d known him for three or four months or something.” The romance quickly flared out, but Freed stayed in the Bay Area to take care of a friend who was dying from AIDS. He’d lost many friends back in Oklahoma City, at the height of the epidemic. “I was going to a funeral every week or two, sometimes,” Freed says. “Having survived the AIDS epidemic and watched so many people die, it’s like having gone to a war.” Freed’s hospice watch in California ended on a joyful note when his friend started taking human growth hormone and recovered. Several of his pals had moved to Santa Fe, so he headed to the Southwest. “Howling coyotes everywhere, and all the trim was painted bright turquoise,” Freed says. That’s how he remembers Santa Fe in 1995, the year he arrived. He dove straight into the art scene, working part-time at two galleries before taking a full-time position at Turner Carroll Gallery on Canyon Road. At the time, Santa Fe seemed on track to becoming a contemporary art mecca. “There were galleries that wanted to try something new, edgy and different,” he says. “That worked really well for a lot of people through the ’90s and into the beginning of the aughts.” In the economic turmoil of the George W Bush era, however, Freed saw Santa Fe’s sense of daring dry up. “A lot of galleries don’t take those chances anymore,” he says. “When they hang a show, they know how much they need to sell to keep the doors open, and they select work accordingly.” Freed left Turner Carroll in 2005 to focus on his own artistic practice, and his career soared. In 2008, he debuted an exhibition of monumental drawings at the Center for Contemporary Arts entitled A Penis Show: Razing the Metaphor. The works were depictions of his genitals, paired with phallic objects such as a pistol, a banana and a cigar. Freed says his pointed meditation on modern masculinity got somewhat

mixed reviews from his friends, but it launched a long-term artistic journey. In 2011, he bought a building on Trades West Road and worked for three months to transform it into three separate spaces. A year later, on a whim, he mounted a group exhibition called Man Made that challenged cultural conceptions of male identity. The show was a hit. “The kind of work these guys did wasn’t necessarily showing on Canyon Road anymore. There was a type of venue that was missing,” he says. “I realized that I could afford to do this four times a year.” He called the space Offroad Productions, a takeoff on the term “off the beaten path.” Since then, over a dozen curators and hundreds of artists have contributed to the project. Local art legends such as Kathryn Davis, Cyndi Conn and Linda Durham have put together shows at Offroad. Well-known names appear alongside emerging artists, and local creatives share the bill with others from across the country. Freed was particularly proud of Interstated: Santa Fe/Phoenix, an exhibition of artists from both cities that he co-curated with Arizona gallerist John Reyes. “It was really rewarding to
see how, even with the big garage doors, it looked like a solid gallery,” Freed says. Next up is Desperately Seeking Other, a group show curated by local creator/DJ Yon Hudson inspired by his most recent body of work that explores the concept of the “other” in modern society. The show features 13 artists including Hudson, Harmony Hammond and Freed himself. Freed often shies away from participating in Offroad exhibitions, and only expects to break even on most shows. He offers a 60 percent cut of sales to featured artists, with the rest split between the curator and the gallery itself. That’s usually just enough to cover the costs of a bar and required security, but Freed isn’t in it for the money. “It’s about showing work that doesn’t appear elsewhere,” he says. “It’s about the quality of the art, and giving the space to make it happen.” He’s not stopping anytime soon, either: Offroad’s current schedule stretches through 2018.

am really out of it and thought I’d ask you. -Confused Over Under-Garment-Area Region
My partner and I have been playing with male chastity devices. We’ve been considering going to a strip club while his cock is caged up and getting him lap dances. Is there some etiquette for this with the dancers? Do we let the dancer know before she is on his lap? Or do we not mention it? Is it rude to get a dancer involved at all? I’ve not yet found an etiquette guide for this situation. -Letting Our Cage Kink Show “I think I speak for most dancers when I say I don’t care what’s going on underneath a customer’s pants,” said Bobbi Hill, a lap dancer based in Portland, Oregon, strip club capital of the United States. “Grazing over a stiff object in the crotch region is not an uncommon experience when giving a lap dance, and depending on the texture of the device, I might not even give it a second thought.” While your concern for lap dancers is commendable, LOCKS, the person most at risk of injury is your partner. Nothing is more fun than inducing an erection in someone who’s locked in a male chastity device—a necessarily painful and punishing erection—but the devices are unyielding (ideally) and the cock flesh is weak (even when hard). A dancer who grinds down on your partner’s crotch is likelier to hurt him. That said, lap dancers don’t like surprises. If a dancer grinds down on your partner’s crotch and feels something hard, clunky, and un-cock-like in his pants, “she might go into air-dance mode,” said Hill, “which is essentially a lap dance where you make as little contact with the customer’s crotch as possible. Of course, you can never go wrong investing in a stripper’s patience and well-being—try handing her a Benjamin as you explain your situation.” Just in case you’re not interested in dancers who are hers, LOCKS, I ran your question by a male stripper. “I don’t think most dancers would mind if a customer was wearing a male chastity device as long as it caused no physical harm or discomfort,” said Aaron, a dancer at Stag PDX, Portland’s new male strip club. “If all parts of the device are safely tucked away between your legs while you receive the lap dance, there should be little to worry about. But if the device has parts that protrude—and could possibly harm an overzealous dancer while they grind up on you—you may want to be more cautious. It also never hurts to ask the dancers what they’re comfortable with.” Strippers! They’re just like us! You can ask them questions! They will answer them! They respond positively when you take their comfort into account! They also appreciate large tips! And good personal hygiene! And clients who aren’t completely shitfaced! I recently left my husband and moved from the suburbs to my own apartment in Philadelphia. It’s very liberating, and I have been starting to venture out for some great sex, something missing in my 25-year marriage. Two weeks ago, I decided to be adventurous and went to a clubby bar around the block and brought a guy back to my place. The guy was in his 40s, lean, and muscular. The sex was great! He was very oral, unlike my vanilla husband. When we got this stud’s clothes off, I saw that his pubic area was completely shaved, basically from his navel down. I don’t know if I looked as shocked as I felt. While he was humping away—I have never had anyone with such stamina and power—he told me to feel his anus, and that area, too, was shaved. I didn’t want to ask him why he shaves, but I am wondering if this is common these days? Is there some “meaning” to it? And is anal touching now customary? I
JANUARY 11-17, 2017
While I love your signoff, COUGAR, sleeping with a lean, muscular guy in his 40s who likes to have his anus touched doesn’t earn a woman her cougar wings or whiskers or whatever. You’re going to have to fuck a few boys in their 20s if you want to be a cougar. In regards to your recent hookup, COUGAR, the removal of pubic hair has definitely become more common over the last 25 years. Studies have found that upwards of 60 percent of women regularly remove most or all of their pubic hair; there aren’t studies about men removing their pubic hair, but many men do. Shaving or waxing doesn’t necessarily mean anything in particular, other than a preference for hairless junk. And the younger people are— chronologically or in spirit—the likelier they are to remove their pubes. And while I wouldn’t describe anal touching as customary, there are definitely more straight men around today who aren’t afraid of their own assholes. I met my boyfriend at a gay night in a club. I thought he was gay because he was dancing shirtless. But he loves going down on me, the PIV sex is the best I’ve ever had, and I believe him when he says he’s straight. He’s got an above-average cock, but he likes me to tell him it’s small and compare him unfavorably to men I’ve been with who had bigger cocks. I’ve had bigger and I don’t mind degrading him like this. (It’s a nice change of pace to be with a guy who doesn’t want me to pretend like I’ve never seen another cock before!) So that’s not the reason I’m writing. This is: He likes to be called a “faggot” when he’s fucking me. It makes him incredibly horny, but I feel guilty for using an antigay hate term while we’re having straight sex. Is this okay? Is it fucked up? Should we stop? -Female Anxiously Grants Slurs It’s not okay, it’s completely fucked up, and you don’t have to stop. And if you feel the least bit guilty about calling your boyfriend a fag when he’s fucking you, FAGS, an hour on gay Tumblr will make you feel better about that. The number of gay men out there who think it’s hot to call their own assholes or other men’s assholes “cunts” will both surprise you and make you feel less conflicted about calling your straight boyfriend a fag. I recently stopped reading your advice column due to its current focus on homosexuality. Just letting you know the heterosexuals are still alive and doing well. -Bored Reading Endlessly Experimental Deviants Exploring Rectums Over the last year, BREEDER, I published 140 questions from readers who identified themselves as gay, lesbian, bi, trans, or straight. Twenty-six of those questions were from gay men (18 percent), 16 were from bisexuals (12 percent), 6 were from trans people (4 percent), 2 were from lesbians (1 percent), and 90 were from straight people (65 percent). Almost all of the bisexuals whose letters I responded to were in opposite-sex, aka “straight,” relationships, and the same goes for half the letters from trans people. (Lots of trans people are straight identified and in opposite-sex, aka “straight,” relationships.) So nearly 80 percent of the questions I answered last year focused on straight people and/or straight sex. If a sex-advice column that’s about straight people and/or straight sex 65 to 80 percent of the time is too gay for you, BREEDER, then my “current focus” isn’t the problem—your homophobia is. I would say that I’m sorry to lose you as a reader, BREEDER, but I’m not.

WEDNESDAY 18 JANUARY AT 7PM LENSIC PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
We think the Writers Resist event included in our weekly culture picks (see SFR Picks, page 17) sounds pretty excellent, so we tracked down co-organizer/poet Dana Levin to get a liite more information. Levin most recently released Banana Palace, a collection of poems that’s receiving rave reviews from such esteemed publications as the Boston Review and The Washington Post. Catch Levin’s brief reading this Sunday at Writers Resist, alongside writers like Arthur Sze, Valerie Martinez, Joan Logghe and more. (Alex De Vore) How did you get involved with Writers Resist? I was doing a reading at Florida State University, and Erin Belieu, who is a professor there and also a press mate of mine at Copper Canyon Press, asked if I wanted to get invovled. It was really her brainchild. The whole idea is to create these events all over the country to raise money in support of nonprofits that serve things we thought would be imperiled with the current administration, like women’s health, immigration or civil liberties in general. How did you select the participating authors? We wanted to have as many voices as possible. And instead of having four, five, six ‘stars,’ we wanted as many writers from diverse styles as we could. We really wanted to cast a wide net, because as much as we wish it were an endless event, it couldn’t be. What’s going on with you outsdie of the event? I’m in a time of change. After living in Santa Fe 19 years, I’ll be moving to St. Louis permanently. I’m running around reading for my book. I guess the most high-profile thing is that I’ll take part in this Library of Congress thing called Life of a Poet, where I’ll be interviewed by The Washington Post’s Book World editor Ron Charles and talk about my process. I’m sort of trying to intuit what my next writing project might be.
China Miéville is a British American writer whose fiction has been compared to the work of Franz Kafka, Ursula Le Guin, and Philip K. Dick. He is a three-time winner of the prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award for The City & The City, Perdido Street Station, and Iron Council. He has won the World Fantasy Award and twice won the British Fantasy Award. National Public Radio describes him thus: “China Miéville is a magician. He’s the Keyser Soze of the New Weird because you never know who he’s going to be. He can do noir, do steampunk, do aliens and magic caterpillars. He’s a shape-shifter.” Miéville earned a master’s degree and a PhD in international relations from the London School of Economics and held a Frank Knox Fellowship at Harvard University. His academic writings have appeared widely, and he has published numerous works of nonfiction, including Between Equal Rights: A Marxist Theory of International Law (2006), a book version of his PhD thesis. In 2015 he released the short story collection Three Moments of an Explosion, and the following year he published the novellas The Last Days of New Paris and This Census-Taker. He lives and works in London and is a founding editor of the journal Salvage. TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Three Parisian Style Tips 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
n the third grade my class made a time capsule. My contribution was a video fashion show in which my best friends modeled what I considered popular fashions of the time. My point? I’ve always had a thing for fashion. Beyond natural affinity, style has been my armor and my form of expression. Good outfits can cheer me up and I save them for special occasions (or particularly bad ones). Before writing for SFR, I was a buyer at Buffalo Exchange in Albuquerque, where I spent eight hours a day digging for treasure in other peoples’ used clothing and learning about vintage items, trends and construction. My aesthetic tendencies are only rivaled by my love of writing, so I am—in no uncertain terms—living the dream right now. I am not a person who thinks they have the prescription for perfection, or who knows every detail of every runway show this year. I am someone with a real-life relationship with and daily admiration for fashion and styling of all kinds. In this column I plan to write about lo-
French je ne c’est quoi style the world eternally seeks to replicate, I can name three products Parisians rely on yearround. Take a step into some international tennis shoes: Adidas’ Stan Smith sneakers In the US, there are skate shoes and Converse aplenty. In Paris, a large portion of the population lives in Adidas’ Stan Smiths. Created in 1963, the first leather tennis shoe was named after the French tennis player Robert Halliet until 1971, when its name was changed to the Stan Smith for the famous American player. Maybe Parisian loyalty lies with the shoes’ original title, but I am betting it’s their classic and simple style that makes them a dependable staple in French wardrobes. The $75 pair can be worn with everything from jeans to dresses, as I saw everyone from toddlers to their babely dads rocking them daily in France. Wear the ankle-bearing sneakers with chunky socks and enjoy them even on colder days.
cal shops, easy and effective products and environmentally conscious labels, about locals with rad style and local designers. I’ll make best-of lists and detail where you can find the items on them whether in town or on the interwebs. In the future, I may contradict myself and change my mind because I am human and messy, and so is my style. Recently, I spent two beautifully wondrous weeks in Paris. It was holiday time, and the City of Lights was romantically overcast with its streets sparkling in colored bulbs, the architecture casting heavy silhouettes tipped by hundreds of tiny chimneys in the winter fog. But what stood out to a fashion-phile like me? Parisian style: effortless and perfectly put-together. French citizens of all ages walk the streets in drool-worthy ensembles, completed by rich wool jackets or down-filled parkas and the finest display of billowing and blanketing scarves one will ever see. While I can’t anymore capture the inexplicably
Worship your skin, ditch your contour stick: Facial Oil Skin is sexy is Paris. Most wear minimal, if any, makeup. You would be hard-
pressed to find a Parisian walking around with a full Kardashian contour. Highlighting your cheeks and brows is a sure way to make the best of your bone structure and, unlike contour sticks—which cake make up into your pores—facial oils keep your skin moisturized and highlighted at the same time. There is an exhaustingly huge selection to choose from when it comes to facial oil, and locally, your options are no different. Head to La Montañita Co-op (913 W Alameda St., 984-2852), which has shelves upon shelves of oils ranging in price from around $9 to around $60. Try the Jemez Pueblo-made Eye Nutrient by maxandjane ($30). It’s clearer than the same brand’s oil, making a perfect highlighting gloss. Just a dab on your brow and cheek bones and you’re ready to go. Let your brows do their thing: Boy Brow Part of what is classically beautiful about French women is that they accept their natural beauty, and simply enhance it. Caterpillar-brow glory is a true thing in Paris. Ditching your tweezing habit may be harder than you expect at first, but accepting your natural brow shape will pay off in the end. Think about it. It’s not hard to think of a super-babe with bushy brows—Brooke Shields, Solange Knowles and Cara Delevigne, to name a few. (If you need some inspiration to get you through the awkward grow-out phase, check out @kactye—17-year-old model Natalia Castellar—on Instagram.) The hands-down best product this bushy-browed lady has found is Glossier’s Boy Brow. The $16 tube comes in three colors and somehow controls and accentuates your expression-makers perfectly.

emember that old Betty Crocker Cookbook? The red one with loose-leaf pages in a three-ring binder that was probably splattered with pancake batter? We always had one on the shelf when I was growing up, but I hadn’t actually looked at one in years until the new edition landed on my desk. First reaction: “Who wants this old thing?” Slow realization: “This is a perfect how-to for a young person leaving home and setting up a kitchen for the first time.” I thought the book was boring because it starts with this chapter of “This is a knife” and “Here are the pots and pans you should have,” and I’m at the part of my life when I’m more like, “Good gravy, why do we have 17 Bundt pans?” But I was that kid once! I took a stained copy of The Joy of Cooking with me when I went to college (still have it) and referred to it like a religious text. But the Betty Crocker Cookbook is even more user-friendly. And it has pictures … lots of great pictures. Twenty-somethings love to cook! And unlike many of their parents or grandparents, they think of it as a fun leisure activity, not a grueling daily chore. That’s partially because so many grew up in an era when a huge percentage of their meals were eaten out at a restaurant or out of a package.

I get paid to eat at some really fancy restaurants and write about it, but at home I cook like my own grandmother (see: pot roast, peach pie). If you know some young people who need a surrogate grandma, you might introduce them to Betty Crocker.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned. Stir in cinnamon and turmeric. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Slowly stir in broth. Add raisins. Heat to boiling; boil gently 1 minute, stirring occasionally. In large bowl, stir together onion mixture, chicken, cilantro, salt and pepper.
Place phyllo sheets on work surface; cover with clean, damp towel. Place one phyllo sheet in bottom and up side of pie plate, allowing excess phyllo to extend over edge. Lightly spray with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the ground almonds. Repeat layers, using seven more phyllo sheets and alternating position of sheets to cover bottom and side of pie plate.
Spoon chicken mixture into pastry-lined plate. Using kitchen scissors, cut excess phyllo from edges. Layer with remaining eight phyllo sheets, spraying each with cooking spray and sprinkling with almonds. Fold excess phyllo under to form rustic crust edge.
Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
It’s a pie. With chicken. A chicken pie, if you will.

Hidden Figures Review: Space Relations An inside look at the nonwhite women who made the space race possible
8 ++ IMPORTANT HISTORY
BY ALEX DE VORE a l e x @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
Here’s the thing—it’s kind of hard to not like Hidden Figures, at least insofar as it’s the simultaneous story of uncredited black women who were so awesome at their jobs that they literally made safe space flight possible, yet they were treated so poorly amidst the racist atmosphere of 1960s Virginia that we’re all kind of like, “What the hell, man?!” That said, the overall tone seems a tad breezy for the subject matter. It could be that director/screenwriter Theodore Melfi wanted to tell the story, which was based on the book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly, in a palatable fashion, but you just know that the actual story was far more intense. We mostly follow Katherine Goble/Johnson (Taraji P Henson), a lifelong math ultra-genius who works as a human computer for the space program at NASA with dozens of other black women. Along with her close friends/fellow NASA employees Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia
Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), Katherine attempts to deduce the incredibly complex science needed to launch John Glenn into space. Of course, it’s the ’60s, and white people are basically the absolute worst, so even though Katherine can do any math that comes her way and Dorothy teaches her damn self how to program NASA’s newly-minted (and roomsized) IBM supercomputer and Mary is some kind of goddamn engineering phenom, they have to fight some pretty nasty racism on the part of people like lead engineer Paul Stafford (The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons) and supervisor Vivian Mitchell (a perfectly condescending and bitchy Kirsten Dunst). Henson’s performance exists in the sweet spot between vulnerable mother and widow and complete badass, unafraid to excel at math or to fight for her race and gender. And though Spencer and Monáe prove indispensable to the pacing
and overall feel of Hidden Figures, some of the impact of the real-world achievements made by the women they portray winds up dissipated as they’re relegated to periodic bits of comic relief. Still, it is Katherine’s story, and there’s much to enjoy here. The sting of racism cuts deep even now, and we must never forget that these people literally had to be complete geniuses and fight their asses off to receive even a modicum of respect. Don’t be surprised if Hidden Figures becomes required viewing for students down the road at some point and, we hope, we start to get other films about the incredible people of color throughout history who perhaps didn’t get the recognition they so obviously deserved. HIDDEN FIGURES Directed by Theodore Melfi With Henson, Spencer, Monáe and Costner Violet Crown, Regal, PG-13, 127 min.

CATS ARE CUTE -- INCONSISTENT PLOT; BAD ACTING
If you’re a die-hard cat person, Chatty Catties might pique your interest, but if your movie needs aren’t met with cute pets alone then it may be a flop. The seemingly low-budget comedy by relatively new director Pablo Valencia follows the life of alcoholic dental assistant Shelby (Megan Hensley from The Haunting of Alice D) and her tabby cat Leonard (voiced by John Autry II) in an alternate world where cats can talk to humans. Chatty Catties is mostly shot through Leonard’s perspective as his human goes through everyday life. Together the two navigate as an unlikely pair; Leonard gives Shelby unfiltered advice about her relationship and career, while Shelby whines, binge-drinks and neglects him. Chatty Catties is one of those films that is so bad it’s almost good, though the overall plot is lost within quirky vignettes and corny dialogue—which greatly detracts from the frequent and appreciated candid cat scenes—but the dry humor is enough to make you chuckle and cringe.

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY
As Shelby lacks the motivation and responsibility to care for Leonard, other cat moms are featured in conversational bits with their felines in forced (and failed) attempts to be funny. None of the human actors seem confident in their roles, which makes the film quality equivalent to that of a YouTube video. Now, this cheeseball isn’t all negative num-

bers, as all of the cats are voiced by deaf or hard-of-hearing actors, which allows them to work in roles that don’t relate to their disability. And hey—cats are cute. So, set aside Shelby’s over-the-top one-liners and the many poorly executed scenes and you’ve got yourself a pretty OK cat flick. (Kim Jones) Jean Cocteau Cinema, NR, 84 min.

THE EAGLE HUNTRESS
++ UNCENSORED; NOT WHITEWASHED -- SLOW BUILD; THE TRIBE’S CULTURE SHOCK IN GERMANY
Rookie director Simon Stadler shocks and humbles viewers with Ghostland: The View of the Ju’Hoansi, a documentary following the Ju’Hoansi bushmen of Namibia. When a law was passed in 1990 that prevented the Ju’Hoansi from hunting animals for food, they were left only with their titles of “gatherers.” The Ju’Hoansi then resorted to performing for visiting Westerners for money by dancing, playing music and shooting arrows. Ghostland takes viewers on a journey of privilege and civilization. Stadler takes his subjects from the Ju’Hoansi tribe to visit neighboring African tribes, as well as “civilized” areas of Namibia and Germany where they witness the lives of those with access to grocery stores, clean water, and—most sacred of all—meat. We see them nervous to use an airplane restroom and fascinated by the amenities of the more civilized world. The camera is almost always trained on the four bushmen, but occasionally focuses on Westerners (aka white people)

wearing uncomfortable and confused yet intrigued expressions as they watch the tribesmen walk around in their native garb. Ghostland poses an interesting juxtaposition between the Ju’Hoansi and the Westerners— the bushmen having so little and yet living happily and carefree; and the Westerners having luxuries unknown to the Ju’Hoansi, yet who are perceived as unhappy, tired and unfulfilled. The simplest things like soap in a gas station restroom or packaged underwear light up the faces of the tribe members, which forces Westerners like us to recognize and understand how privileged we really are.

number of new characters. If this is a fair example of the kinds of side stories we can expect from the Star Wars universe, we say bring us more. With such a massively rich vein for storytelling, there’s ample opportunity to win new fans while pleasing entire generations of others. One must be careful not to allow this film to be overhyped, and there will always be minimal things to pick apart if you’re one of those sci-fi fans. But, if you’ve ever been into Star Wars to any degree whatsoever, you’ll want to see this film immediately; the last three minutes alone are worth it.

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY
BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED
++ IT’S STAR WARS, BRO; DARTH VADER -- CREEPY CGI
Now that we’re apparently going to get our Star Wars movies in annualized form, it’s only natural to question the validity of Rogue One, the first in a series of non-core films in the franchise, and one to tell a story outside the main plotlines we’ve come to know and love. We follow Jyn Erso (The Theory of Everything’s Felicity Jones), the daughter of an Imperial science officer played by Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal). Jyn is orphaned when her father grows a conscience and doesn’t want to fight for the Empire anymore. She’s young and brash and doesn’t much care about anything, but when the Rebel Alliance needs to track down someone close to her, she enlists in exchange for whatever semblance of freedom is available in this particular galaxy. And so, along with a Rebel captain named Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), who is beginning to question his place in the fight, and a wise-crackin’ reprogrammed Imperial droid (voiced brilliantly by Firefly’s Alan Tudyk, even if he’s awfully similar to Douglas Adams’ Marv from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Jyn must traverse the planets to uncover the plans for an Imperial mega-weapon you may have heard about called the Death Star. Rogue One separates itself from previous Star Wars films with a tale that’s more about the individual human cost of war than the admittedly fun fantasy of space magic. This isn’t to say that known elements from the Star Wars realm don’t find their way into the film, but rather than focus on one young man’s journey to self-discovery and missing hands in a blackand-white, good-versus-evil universe, Rogue One isn’t afraid to point out that the Rebel Alliance must sometimes do ugly things in the name of peace. This paradoxical concept not only helps to flesh out a chapter in the saga that we’ve always kind of wondered about, it is a solid foundation for the humanization of the rebels who, in previous outings, had proven disappointingly dimensionless. The CGI is as brilliant as one would expect from the franchise, save a few creepy choices such as a computer-generated version of Peter Cushing (RIP) as Governor Tarkin that is understandable given he’s not alive, but that still falls victim to the uncanny valley. It’s also possible that the heavy emphasis on fan service for the second Star Wars film in quick succession could arguably be perceived as a crutch. Regardless, the action sequences are just right and every conceivable detail seems to have been considered. We actually grow to care about characters that represent a fairly huge shift in a monumental piece of shared culture, and Rogue One does a fine job in establishing a

++ FUN TO SEE THE YOUNG ACTORS -- DIRECTOR SEEMS TO BE LIVING
VICARIOUSLY THROUGH THE DOC
Director Lonny Price (Company and 2001’s Sweeney Todd in concert) explores the complexities of the 1981 Broadway musical Merrily We Roll Along. The show, from legendary composer/director team Harold Prince and Stephen Sondheim, is dissected in the new documentary, Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened. Price tackles not only the young actors involved, but the musical’s unprecedented approach of telling protagonist Frank Shepard’s journey from zero to hero by using a backwards time frame. Prince and Sondheim’s risky vision for their production was to cast all young people. They hosted an open cattle call, advertising for individuals between the ages of 14 and 20 and, after a rigorous audition process, the chosen few felt like the most fortunate actors of their time. Unexpectedly, however, the play flopped. Hard. Attendees fled the theater within minutes of the curtain, and after the first disastrous run, the script was scrapped and one of the main actors was replaced. The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened guides viewers on an inspiring journey through excitement, disappointment and creative fulfillment. Each actor from the original cast of Merrily We Roll Along (such as Jason Alexander of Seinfield) share their stories about life after the musical’s demise. Stimulating interviews dive into topics important to consider for all creative minds, such as being flexible in one’s career path or following one’s heart despite obstacles. Price himself flashes back to his glory days as Merrily’s Charley Kringas, which makes the film seem like he is living vicariously, but it is his capturing of the family-like unity found within the theater that becomes the leading message of the film.

Ghostland reminds us just how much we really have.
and men from the Kazakh, a nomadic tribe that’s been around since before the days of Genghis Khan. But more than that, it’s how this young girl breaks the glass ceiling between verdant expanses and craggy mountains. You see, like being president of the United States, eagle hunting in Mongolia is just for men. And, boy howdy, even if you stopped reading the subtitles for a few minutes, you’d know how the men interviewed for the film really feel about Aisholpan’s interloping on their sausage fest. Women are weak; they don’t have the courage to hold the bird; they should stay home and make tea for the hunters. Her father, to be congratulated on his forward thinking and bold dedication to his daughter, sees past the gender barrier. “It’s not choice,” he explains, “it’s a calling that has to be in your blood.” And it’s in hers. Aisholpan thus shows no fear, strapping on her fur-lined hat and trotting into town on her sturdy horse, arm extended as it becomes a perch for the avian predator. The bird’s wingspan is wider than she is tall, dwarfing the ruddy-cheeked girl with each restless flap. She pets its head as if it were a house cat, talking all the while with praise and comfort. Oh, and by the way—she had to rappel down a cliff side and snatch the eaglet from its nest. Then months of training. No bigs. What majestic footage: the grace of the powerful wings alighting from the edge of the mountain, the expressions on the old dudes’ faces as she earns perfect scores at the region’s annual eagle festival as the youngest competitor and the first-ever female. It is a trip for the imagination to look inside yurts and back to stone goat enclosures, across barren snowscapes and through villages with stumpy homes and smoky corridors. See too the textures of the textiles, the steam from the mouths of beasts, and the expressive faces not just of the starring eagles, but the scruffy horses and bleating lambs. We dare you to watch impassively as father and daughter ride off together after Aisholpan passes the ultimate test of recognition for a hunter: catching a fox in the snowy mountains. The Eagle Huntress is a great winter movie that stands to touch the coldest chambers of heart with fierce inspiration. Grab it with your talons. (Julie Ann Grimm) DeVargas, G, subtitles, 87 min

a romantic drama fueled by self-discovery. A young boy grows up in Miami during the ’70s and ’80s while struggling to accept his identity. We tour through three significant chapters of Chiron’s life, from timid boy to deluded man, as played at various ages by newcomer Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders from Straight Outta Compton and Westworld’s Trevante Rhodes. Chiron must navigate a veritable minefield of adolescent strife, from a drug-addicted mother, an antihero crack dealer named Juan (Mahershala Ali) and his budding sexuality with lifelong friend Kevin (Jharrell Jerome and André Holland). Moonlight focuses on the paradoxical question of who you are and who you are expected to be, as Chiron learns he can be open with Kevin sans judgment and utilizes that presence as a safe space. Chiron uncomfortably flits through adulthood, defying the stereotypes of gay and black men, but eventually becoming a crack dealer running the inner city of Atlanta. When Chiron and Kevin reconnect in adulthood, however, Chiron must evaluate who he has become and who he has portrayed himself to be. The gritty plot is beautifully accompanied by ambient lighting and carefully composed scenes, further supporting the poignancy each character brings to the screen, and though Chiron’s voice is rarely heard, he expresses himself with his actions, whether violent or passionate. Moonlight thus becomes a cinematic masterpiece, a journey of love, loss and selfdiscovery that will leave viewers captivated by Chiron’s character long after the film is over.

Week of January 11th
ARIES (March 21-April 19) In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is a huge holy tree that links all of the nine worlds to each other. Perched on its uppermost branch is an eagle with a hawk sitting on its head. Far below, living near the roots, is a dragon. The hawk and eagle stay in touch with the dragon via Ratatoskr, a talkative squirrel that runs back and forth between the heights and the depths. Alas, Ratatoskr traffics solely in insults. That’s the only kind of message the birds and the dragon ever have for each other. In accordance with the astrological omens, Aries, I suggest you act like a far more benevolent version of Ratatoskr in the coming weeks. Be a feisty communicator who roams far and wide to spread uplifting gossip and energizing news.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Now would be an excellent time to add new beauty to your home. Are there works of art or buoyant plants or curious symbols that would lift your mood? Would you consider hiring a feng shui consultant to rearrange the furniture and accessories so as to enhance the energetic flow? Can you entice visits from compelling souls whose wisdom and wit would light up the place? Tweak your imagination so it reveals tricks about how to boost your levels of domestic bliss.

It’s high time to take ing angles. A therapist friend of mine likes to use the full ownership of neglected treasures so you can share metaphor of the kind of spiral stair that winds up them with your worthy allies. It’s high time to madly cultivate the generosity of spirit that will enable you to inside a lighthouse. As one moves up that stair, the core at the center doesn’t change, but one continually more easily receive the blessings that can and should sees it from another vantage point; if the past is a core be yours. Be a brave, softhearted warrior of love! of who we are, then our movement in time always GEMINI (May 21-June 20) I love and respect Tinker Bell, brings us into a new relation to that core.” Kermit the Frog, Shrek, Wonder Woman, SpongeBob SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The Tao Te Ching is a SquarePants, Snow White, Road Runner, and Calvin and poetically philosophical text written by a Chinese sage Hobbes. They have provided me with much knowledge more than two millennia ago. Numerous authors have and inspiration. Given the current astrological omens, I translated it into modern languages. I’ve borrowed suspect that you, too, can benefit from cultivating your relationships with characters like them. It’s also a favorfrom their work to craft a horoscope that is precisely able time for you to commune with the spirits of Harriet suitable for you in the coming weeks. Here’s your highTubman, Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, or any other his- class fortune cookie oracle: Smooth your edges, torical figures who inspire you. I suggest you have dream- untangle your knots, sweeten your openings, balance like conversations with your most interesting ancestors, your extremes, relax your mysteries, soften your glare, as well. Are you still in touch with your imaginary friends forgive your doubts, love your breathing, harmonize from childhood? If not, renew acquaintances. your longings, and marvel at the sunny dust. CANCER (June 21-July 22) “I never wish to be easily defined,” wrote Cancerian author Franz Kafka. “I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.” Do you ever have that experience? I do. I’m a Crab like you, and I think it’s common among members of our tribe. For me, it feels liberating. It’s a way to escape people’s expectations of me and enjoy the independence of living in my fantasies. But I plan to do it a lot less in 2017, and I advise you to do the same. We should work hard at coming all the way down to earth. We will thrive by floating less and being better grounded; by being less fuzzy and more solid; by not being so inscrutable, but rather more knowable. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Here’s my declaration: “I hereby forgive, completely and permanently, all motorists who have ever irked me with their rude and bad driving. I also forgive, totally and forever, all tech support people who have insulted me, stonewalled me, or given me wrong information as I sought help from them on the phone. I furthermore forgive, utterly and finally, all family members and dear friends who have hurt my feelings.” Now would be a fantastic time for you to do what I just did, Leo: Drop grudges, let go of unimportant outrage, and issue a blanket amnesty. Start with the easier stuff—the complaints against strangers and acquaintances—and work your way up to the allies you cherish.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) I recently discovered Tree of Jesse, a painting by renowned 20th-century artist Marc Chagall. I wanted to get a copy to hang on my wall. But as I scoured the Internet, I couldn’t find a single business that sells prints of it. Thankfully, I did locate an artist in Vietnam who said he could paint an exact replica. I ordered it, and was pleased with my new objet d’art. It was virtually identical to Chagall’s original. I suggest you meditate on taking a metaphorically similar approach, Capricorn. Now is a time when substitutes may work as well as what they replace. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) “It is often safer to be in chains than to be free,” wrote Franz Kafka. That fact is worthy of your consideration in the coming weeks, Aquarius. You can avoid all risks by remaining trapped inside the comfort that is protecting you. Or you can take a gamble on escaping, and hope that the new opportunities you attract will compensate you for the sacrifice it entails. I’m not here to tell you what to do. I simply want you to know what the stakes are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) “All pleasures are in the last analysis imaginary, and whoever has the best imagination enjoys the most pleasure.” So said 19thcentury German novelist Theodor Fontane, and now I’m passing his observation on to you. Why? Because by my astrological estimates, you Pisceans will have exceptional imaginations in 2017—more fertile, fervent, VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There are some authors who and freedom-loving than ever before. Therefore, your both annoy me and intrigue me. Even though I feel allergic capacity to drum up pleasure will also be at an all-time to the uncomfortable ideas they espouse, I’m also high. There is a catch, however. Your imagination, like fascinated by their unique provocations. As I read their everyone else’s, is sometimes prone to churning out words, I’m half-irritated at their grating declarations, and superstitious fears. To take maximum advantage of its yet greedy for more. I disagree with much of what they bliss-inducing potential, you will have to be firm about say, but feel grudgingly grateful for the novel perspectives steering it in positive directions. they prod me to discover.
