DISCOUNT? Ever since my first visit to a dispensary I wondered when the plastic packaging would become a problem. I think the best route, and what I am already doing, is after my plastic containers are empty I keep them and bring back to dispensary for them to reuse. I asked for the store to give me a discount for any
containers brought back, but unfortunately they don’t. So if they did have some type of in-house customer return program it’s a win-win.

in these situations where these women have been through an incredibly horrific experience that I can’t imagine going through.” Like all Cibola detainees represented by the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center and its network of pro-bono lawyers, Canning’s client is a transgender woman. She is kept in an isolated pod at the prison with between 50 and 60 other trans women. Brockway and Canning say trans people often face severe brutality with little consequence in Central America, an observation supported by Amnesty International. This is why Carlota*, a 23-year-old trans woman who spent the last six months locked up at Cibola, left her hometown of Yoro, Honduras, and tried crossing into California in January. Speaking from the Albuquerque home of a woman who took her in after her release, Carlota says being incarcerated alongside other trans women provided
special phone line that provides translation services for immigrants detained at the Cibola County Correctional Facility was inexplicably disconnected for two weeks in June and July, limiting access to legal counsel who help people file asylum claims and mental health professionals who assess their well-being. The lapse led to a loss of valuable time to work on detainees’ cases, attorneys and others tell SFR. As of July 5, the phone line had been restored, according to Kevin Martin, public information officer for CoreCivic, the private prison company that operates the detention center on contract with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. CoreCivic subcontracts the translation service to Language Line Services, and prison officials as well as outsiders who visit the prison, such as legal counsel, use the line to facilitate communication with detainees. Martin blames the lapse in service on a “billing issue,” but would not elaborate. Lawyers and mental health workers say they were surprised after showing up to the prison in the last couple weeks to meet with detainees, only to be turned away by staff who informed them that communication wasn’t possible. By June 29, more than a week after the service went down, not even Dean King, the top ICE official overseeing the prison from Albuquerque, had heard about the problem, according to an email obtained by SFR. Two lawyers who frequent the prison told SFR on July 9 that they had not been informed that the translation line was back in service. Wes Brockway, a staff attorney at the Santa Fe Dreamers Project who has represented immigrants detained at Cibola, says a CoreCivic employee in charge of scheduling legal visits informed him on July 5 that the line was still down—apparently in error. “I’m happy for our clients that have access to that, but it shouldn’t have been down in the first place,” Brockway says. “There were important things we needed to schedule that we were unable to for the last two weeks, and [detainees] were
just very flat-out denied access to counsel and services necessary for their asylum cases.” Martin, the spokesperson for CoreCivic, writes in an email to SFR that the private prison company was “not required” to give attorneys and others access to the Language Line phone service. When SFR relayed this information to Brockway, he cited executive orders issued by past US presidents mandating each federal agency provide limited English speakers “meaningful access” to services such as legal counsel. Lynne Canning, a Santa Fe-based attorney, was planning to speak with her client over the phone with a translator. Her client is scheduled to appear in front of a judge early next week to argue her asylum claim. After SFR informed Canning the translation line was up again, she said she would visit her client at Cibola this week. “There are obvious advantages to speaking in person instead of the phone,” Canning explains to SFR, “particularly

her with some sense of security, but that she also experienced mistreatment from guards and nurses. (*Name has been changed.) “There were times they treated us as if we were men,” says Carlota, including misgendering and not using their preferred names. Then, “they started to just refer to us by our last names, but I feel this is a form of discrimination.” At one point, after getting into a fight with another prisoner, Carlota says she was held in solitary confinement—in a cell by herself for 23 hours a day—for a month. She says she knows other women who were held in similar conditions even longer. The United Nations considers more than 15 days in solitary to be torture; CoreCivic has repeatedly claimed it doesn’t use solitary confinement. Despite the conditions, Carlota is among the more fortunate trans detainees to go through Cibola. That’s because she had legal representation, unlike the 15 others who currently do not, attorneys tell SFR. Carlota credits legal counsel for a judge tentatively approving her asylum claim in June. With her lawyers from the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, Carlota says, “I didn’t feel alone anymore. I felt more confident. They were working on my case and they won the case, thanks to God.” Brockway, who represented Carlota, says immigration lawyers often work in tandem with mental health workers who visit detainees to conduct interviews that gauge trauma and other psychological conditions. The results can bolster a person’s “credible fear” claim—a key hurdle in asylum cases. On June 8, Albuquerquebased child psychiatrist Shawn Sidhu held a training at the University of New Mexico for mental health workers interested in administering to detainees at Cibola. To his surprise, 70 people showed up, and in a few weeks a dozen volunteers were ready to begin visits under his direction. “But that’s when the phone stuff started happening,” blunting the team’s momentum, Sidhu tells SFR. Both CoreCivic and ICE maintain that legal and mental health volunteers can obtain their own translation help, but Sidhu says they need the precision of a professional service. “The amount of detail we need, asking who persecuted them, and also discussing feelings and emotions, those are higher language [concepts],” Sidhu says. “You basically can’t do the work without a specialized interpreter.” SFREPORTER.COM

Nuclear Families COURTESY COMPREHENSIVE NUCLEAR-TEST-BAN TREATY ORGANIZATION
For downwinders, congressional hearings and opera performance are two tactics in a long fight for compensation
The Trinity Test was the world’s first atomic bomb detonated by the US.
B Y E VA R O S E N F E L D i n t e r n @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
hen Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium Co-Founder Tina Cordova got her chance to testify before Congress, 73 years had passed since the world’s first atomic bomb detonated in Southern New Mexico. Cordova had been requesting the hearing for eight years, and twice the Senate Judiciary Committee had granted and then cancelled her appearance. Accompanying her to the late June hearing were 12 other New Mexico women affected by the 1945 atomic bomb detonation at the Trinity test site. Some had cancer themselves and some had lost loved ones to radiation-related illness— or both, like Cordova, whose father died battling three simultaneous cancers. When Cordova started the consortium 13 years ago with another Tularosa native,
Fred Tyler, they had never heard of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act of 1990. The act compensated only Nevada Test Site downwinders in Utah, Nevada and Arizona, though New Mexicans living near Trinity experienced a blast more powerful than the bomb detonated over Nagasaki later that year. Cordova’s testimony asked lawmakers to extend compensation to New Mexico, Idaho and Pacific Islander downwinders, as well as people who worked in the uranium industry after 1917. Historically, the national government has characterized the test site as sparsely inhabited, and remained closedmouthed about medical repercussions from the fallout. The US Department of Energy’s official website still calls it “a remote corner on the Alamogordo Bombing Range.” Census data, however, shows tens of thousands of people, mostly Hispanic and Native, living within a 50-mile radius of the bomb.
Bernice Gutierrez, a member of the consortium’s steering committee, was 8 days old and living in Carrizozo when the test occurred 35 miles away. When she was 2, her family moved to Albuquerque, where she lives today. “But imagine all the damage that was done in that short time,” she says. “It followed us, believe me. “My mom had three types of cancer. She had skin, thyroid, and breast cancer,” Gutierrez says. “One endocrinologist asked me if we had ever been exposed to radiation. I didn’t have a clue. I really never connected the dots. After my brother got thyroid cancer, my sister got it and is currently going through it again for the third time. My daughter had it three times. My brother’s daughter got it. My other brother had pancreatic cancer. I had to have my thyroid removed.” She fills the space of six minutes listing the cancer diagnoses and deaths of cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces. “To say that we weren’t affected is insane,” she says. “That is not a normal family history.” Gutierrez learned about the link between her family’s medical history and their radioactive exposure only when she saw Cordova speaking on television five years ago. “It was like a lightbulb went on,” Gutierrez says. The group argues that all of New Mexico is affected economically by the lack of federal compensation for downwinders. Medical costs, often reaching millions of dollars for a single patient, are shouldered by the state’s share of Medicaid rather than a federal program like that of Utah, Nevada or Arizona. Federal compensation, advocates say, would not only account for costs now absorbed by the state, but might bolster small-town economies as clinics and other small businesses open locally to provide care. The downwinders consider last month’s Congressional hearing a catalyst rather than a victory in the fight for compensation. They’re engaged in on-

going lobbying and exposure campaigns, including one unorthodox vehicle for exposure: Doctor Atomic, which opens at the Santa Fe Opera on July 14 under the direction of Peter Sellars. It’s set to feature Cordova, Gutierrez and other downwinders performing, the result of a lunch meeting between Cordova, Sellars and choreographer Emily Johnson in March. “They said, ‘We want to embrace you,’” Cordova says. The three discussed bringing the downwinders’ story into the production, as well as that of the Pueblo people of Northern New Mexico affected by the construction of Los Alamos. “In a group setting recently, with a number of downwinders present,” Cordova says, “I told Peter and Emily: Imagine, we’re a group of people that don’t have access to the opera, much less access to being part of the opera. We will access an audience that we would have never had access to before. And through this art form I believe that people will open their minds, their hearts to the understanding that we have been harmed in this process, and that we have been left all these years to deal with this on our own.” In addition to the exposure offered by the production, Gutierrez emphasizes the emotional weight of hearing the story told. Watching the scene in which General Groves ignores the advice of his medical advisor not to detonate without evacuating the area, she says, is an “intense moment of supreme anger. … We were in the dark for many many years, because history doesn’t tell the whole truth. And to hear it being told factually, it’s amazing. It’s something we were never ever told.” The downwinders’ ultimate goal is to receive acknowledgement, apology, and compensation from the federal government—“just like other downwinders,” Cordova says. “There’s a moral and ethical imperative to right this wrong after 73 years. In those 73 years, people have suffered immensely.”

BUILDING UP OR TEARING DOWN? Santa Fe’s rental housing shortage is a problem of quantity and quality, with the city’s future hanging in the balance B Y M AT T G R U B S m a t t g r u b s @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
his is a frustrating time for most people to find a place to live in Santa Fe. It’s been a seller’s market for home ownership for at least a couple years, and a landlord’s market for rentals for a decade. For those with no place to call home, it’s a daily battle with little in the way of transitional housing to get them on their feet. Depending on who’s doing the math, estimates of the shortage in housing stock can run to 8,000 or more. About 1,500 multifamily homes—from duplexes to apartment developments— are in the city’s pipeline for new construction with another 1,200 in early planning stages. It’s grim. Today, just about any new home options will help. Getting new development wrong, though, threatens to yank at the cultural fabric of Santa Fe for future generations by exacerbating inequity. Community groups, developers and elected officials all seem to want to avoid that, but without a plan, Santa Fe could further splinter into a less recognizable city. The tip of the iceberg is multifamily housing. Generally speaking, that’s anything that is not a single-family home. Those properties are the most likely to be rented, and there are almost none available.
JULY 11-17, 2018
The shortage of both affordable and market-rate apartments crystallized this spring, when a local man offered a storage shed in his backyard for rent on Craigslist. The $575-a-month structure lacked running water or a toilet and the listing included requirements for prospective renters such as needing to regularly engage in “contemplative daily practice.” After SFR published a story about it, the city told the owner it was likely illegal. He took down the ad. According to CBRE Group, the commercial real estate giant that monitors Santa Fe’s multifamily housing market, the city’s occupancy rate has been at 95 percent or above since May 2014. “I think it all begins with quality of life. People want to live there,” David Eagle tells SFR. He writes the CBRE reports on Santa Fe. That only sounds like a nice problem to have if you already have a place to live. It’s not useful to think of occupancies above 95 percent as a 5 percent vacancy rate, he says, because it doesn’t really indicate a vacancy. People move out, they move in and there’s always a little lag time that does not translate to availability. The CBRE survey measures large apartment complexes, so there’s an ungauged segment of the market for casitas and compounds. But those homes don’t make for a hidden glut of places for rent that would push the actual occupancy rate down to something sane. The fact is, very few people or companies are building multifamily housing. Even in a city with a demonstrated need and a desire to issue a permit in a matter of months, getting a multifamily project built takes years. Today, added time means added cost. “We’ve been averaging a 4-5 percent increase on construction costs annually,” says Josh Rogers, who oversees multifamily projects for Titan Development. Aside from the cost of raw construction material, subcontractors are hard to find, and many are based in Albuquerque. “There’s about a 10 percent premium for construction in Santa Fe. You’re asking those subcontractors to commute. And when they’re commuting, they’re not working,” he explains. Still, Titan is building the Broadstone Rodeo development off St. Francis Drive on the southeast end of town. It’s the
biggest new project in Santa Fe, and is a “class A” development that promises 188 apartment homes with one or two bedrooms. They’ll have a resort-style pool, an entertainment room, patios and covered parking. Rogers expects rent to begin at $1,050 for a one-bedroom apartment. “It’s gotten nutty up there,” he says. “There are places with popcorn ceilings that rent for $1,250 a month. I don’t even know how to justify that. Are there really people who walk in and see a popcorn ceiling from the ’70s and say, ‘I want this?’” The industry groups apartments into class A, B or C based on age, condition, rent and amenities. Class A is in good repair, has professional management and goes for market-rate rent or above. Class B is maybe 15 years old and due for an update; rent reflects that. Class C apartments are the oldest and in need of repair. With hardly any class A apartments in Santa Fe, rent is out of whack. That dynamic costs the city both residents and money. People who live here spend money here. Around 80 percent of the city’s budget comes from gross receipts tax. Most estimates are that at least half the city’s workforce doesn’t live in Santa Fe. Many people commute from Albuquerque—where they pay most of their taxes. “You’d be blown away at the difference in quality between Albuquerque and Santa Fe,” Rogers says. “The consumer looks at that and says, ‘I get so much less for my money. I’ll just make the commute.’” He says Titan spoke to Presbyterian Medical Group, which has structured shifts at its soon-to-open hospital so nurses can work longer hours and commute fewer days; an indication that the company anticipates many new employees will live outside the city. If Titan can stick to the $1,050 price point for its one-bedroom apartments, it has the potential to put pressure on notoriously rigid rental rates, which sat at $952 for January, according to CBRE. That rate might be conservative, because it measures large complexes, which tend to be on the city’s lower-priced Southside. If new apartments aren’t much more expensive than older ones, those landlords will be forced to drop rates. They could also spend money on repairs or new appliances to make their property more competitive. In an ultra-tight market like Santa Fe,

though, it’s often just the lucky few who snag a new place and settle in. That’s the case at the Railyard Flats development off Cerrillos and Paseo de Peralta, which is in its first leasing cycle. “I don’t think we expected our apartments to go as fast as they did,” offers Rupert Ortiz, the property manager for the Greystar-owned development. “We probably could have asked more.” The 58-unit property, which focuses on scaled-down, convenient urban living, began renting in February. By the time the doors opened in May, the complex had four units left. “It’s a pretty competitive rate,” he tells SFR of the units, which start at $890 for a studio and top out at $2,200 for two-bedroom rental. “I’ve seen some of the older developments around town and we’re pretty close on pricing.” Though Railyard Flats is competitive with smaller downtown apartments, it commands a rather high price per square foot. “We call around [to apartments] all the time,” Titan’s Rogers says. “When people pick up the phone and you tell them you’re looking for an apartment, they don’t say, ‘Let us tell you about our community,’ they say, ‘Yeah, when are you looking?’ It’s that full.”
ture of housing in the city. They’re interested not just in houses, but in homes—safe places to play and pray, to cry, laugh and grow. As far as Santa Fe meetings go, it’s a diverse crowd. There seem to be as many 20-somethings as there are people in their 60s. A few heads of green and pink hair are scattered among the gray. In many ways, the room around them is a simulacrum of Santa Fe’s housing

market: It’s a beautiful space, but inefficient. By the time organizers move the gathering outside after the sun sets, more than a few people will call it quits. The building can house the people, but it can’t really accommodate them. They can’t thrive.
The evening’s exercise is to look at housing through the lens of science fiction; to imagine Santa Fe in the year 2068 as a city where housing is plentiful and affordable. Free of some of the normal constraints of problem-solving, organizers hope to bring new voices to the conversation, and to connect the individual efforts around the community. “A lot of the books, a lot of the movies that thought about solutions, came about years and decades before [those solutions] came to fruition,” Creative Santa Fe’s Cyndi Conn says as things get underway. It’s the first dialogue in Creative Santa Fe’s Disruptive Futures series. The arts-centric group has brought in urbanist and designer Liz Ogbu to talk about how housing equity can lead to sustainable communities. There’s a temptation in addressing affordable housing, Ogbu says, to think of the fix in terms of “units” rather than “homes.” Successful projects don’t just stop at a roof and four walls; they build those thriving spaces that can sustain a historically diverse city like Santa Fe. Success also means seeking voices from the communities that will be impacted. Ogbu recalls meetings she’s held for affordable home projects where residents stand with arms folded, exuding doubt and distrust, waiting for what’s next. For people who typically aren’t represented at the table, there’s a fear of being run out of a neighborhood or a home that has been in a famCONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

“People need to understand the complexities of our housing situation. When people get to share their story about what they’ve experienced, it helps us understand what we need to do better,” she says. The history of displacement—pushing out traditional uses of place in the name of progress—breeds resentment. Villarreal says it’s not a problem City Hall is likely to solve on its own. “I don’t think government is equipped to [handle conversations about cultural loss],” she tells SFR. “Groups that are community-based and address social and racial inequities in the city, not just healing, but difficult policy decisions and choices” can better inform the government. Rivera, Conn and others are anxious to have those conversations. “If you want to talk about cultural harmony in our city, you don’t necessarily need to have a panel discussion on cultural harmony,” Conn tells SFR in the organization’s office in an old house on Read Street. “We have events, we have activities, we bring people together in play, in joy. And that’s where the arts also come in.” It’s an off-the-beaten path approach, but it’s not as though conventional

methods are working. Creative Santa Fe would know. It’s working with New Mexico Inter-Faith Housing to develop the Siler Yard Arts + Creativity Center on city land off Siler Road. The Siler Yard project aims to provide 65 live-work homes for artists with lower incomes who are part of Santa Fe’s creative economy. It would help those both inside and outside the project. It’s slated to include performance, exhibition and “micro-retail” space, a shared workshop and a classroom with programs such as entrepreneurship training to help residents transition to sustainable living and find connections to social services. It’s not cheap. The $14-$15 million price tag for those 65 units is roughly $35,000$50,000 more per home than Titan’s Broadstone Rodeo project. That’s with some costs covered by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, land donated by the city, $400,000 promised for things like water and sewer lines, and funding from the partnership with Creative Santa Fe. The majority of the homes would rent to artists who earn less than 50 percent of the area median income—no more than $34,650 a year for a family of four. Some homes will rent for as little as $300 a month. For all its ambition, the project has yet to win a federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit that would cover 60 percent of its construction cost. Developers found out this month that Siler Yard came painfully close to getting the credit for a second straight year. The group is considering a third try. Its $9 million ask would double the total award for all six projects in the state that got money this year. Backers are adamant that Siler Yard is the right way to provide affordable housing: Tie it in to the local economy. Provide a common space for the community, not just residents. Include robust social and economic programming. It’s not just the kind of development lower-income Santa Feans need, they say, it’s the kind of development that neighbors will want—if they can build it and if the city will continue to support it. Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber has spent a lot of time lately thinking about Robert F Kennedy. Last month was the 50th anniversary of the death of a man many thought had the vision, power and will to change America even more than his brother who became president. Webber says Kennedy’s vision of an inclusive America provided hope for progress and gave a voice to the voiceless: “He got away from the theory of
change, that it was a zero-sum game; that for me to succeed, you have to fail.” The mayor thinks that’s prescriptive. “We have to find solutions that don’t require somebody else to lose. … We have to not just build housing for the sake of housing but livable, attractive neighborhoods where people want to put down roots,” he says. He will need to try to do it without tearing up the roots that are already there. His housing advisory group says there needs to be a plan: Find a sustainable funding source and use city land for affordable housing. The group will keep meeting. “It’s not easy,” Webber offers. “This is the hard stuff. This has been the hard stuff of America for as long as I’ve been alive.” There are success stories. Both the Soleras Station multifamily project near the new Presbyterian Hospital and the Villa Consuelo rehabilitation project for senior housing off Cerrillos Road won federal low-income housing credits the past two years. The Civic Housing Authority plans to rehab roughly 10 apartments at a time for the Villa Consuelo project. The result will be 100 up-to-date, affordable apartment homes for older Santa Feans. The Soleras Stations project is being developed by The Housing Trust. Zach Thomas, who directs land use for the group, says the 87-home project will feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Of those, 73 will be what are called income-verified, where a resident has to prove they earn less than 60 percent of the area median income, or $43,200 for a family of four. The homes will be available to applicants who earn “all the way from 120 percent of AMI down to 30 percent,” Thomas tells SFR. Planning 14 apartments to be affordable even for people who earn above the median income for Santa Fe indicates how expensive it can be to live in the city. Like the Broadstone Rodeo project, Soleras Station plans to come online in late summer or early fall 2019. From developer to home hunter, it’s hard to find someone who is seriously looking at the problem who isn’t passionate about it. Builders want reliable funding streams for affordable projects, and market-rate developers crave predictability from the city. Residents who fear being shoved out of their traditional neighborhood in favor of redevelopment are crying to be heard. Santa Fe is becoming more financially and racially segregated with each passing year. There’s certainly the will to solve Santa Fe’s housing crisis. What the city needs next is the way.

Santa Fe Network’s first original content considers the secret lives of smart devices BY JULIA GOLDBERG @votergirl
ast spring, Alexa made headlines when she secretly recorded a conversation between a husband and wife and then sent the communiqué to the husband’s employee. The story was one of several high-profile news events highlighting the smart device’s unexpected behavior. Other customers had experienced Alexa’s creepy unbidden laughter. Reports of researchers’ discovery that they could secretly program smart devices to hear commands undetectable to humans added to rising dismay from privacy advocates, as well as those of us who saw The Terminator too many times at a young age. Lee Zlotoff—of MacGyver fame—rattles off these incidents while discussing his new web series, Our Own Devices, as examples of why the show is situated not just in the here—Santa Fe—but the now. “We are living in weird times,” he says
with a laugh. Zlotoff produced the web series, the first original content from Santa Fe Network (SantaFeNetwork.TV). It premieres online July 11. Don’t let my Terminator reference scare you off. Unlike most meditations on human/cyborg dynamics, Our Own Devices foregoes the dystopian twist—it’s a comedy. Written by Danny Rubin (writer of Groundhog Day) and directed by Vicky Jenson (director of Shrek), the 12-episode micro-series (each episode is just a few minutes long) takes a look at a particular Santa Fe household where the smart devices—Alexa and Siri, primarily—have a secret relationship. (See a trailer at SFReporter.com.) The show grew from a conversation between Zlotoff and Rubin, both Santa Fe residents and friends with serious Hollywood experience. Zlotoff shared the idea, Rubin immediately responded and—with relative ease— the show came to fruition. While Rubin immediately saw the comedic potential in a Siri/Alexa relationship (he started out in comedy, so writing short and funny comes naturally), the series also incorporates other themes Santa Fe Network’s original web series “Our Own Devices” he’s explored throughout comedically explores what happens when Alexa meets Siri. his career. “A fascination COURTESY SANTA FE NETWORK

from when I was very young that carries through in all of my writing has to do with the pursuit of understanding of what the limits of humanity are: What are we bound to, what can we not escape and what are we assuming that isn’t necessarily true? This juncture with technology raises a lot of those questions in an interesting way,” he tells SFR. Both Rubin and Zlotoff are also excited to be part of the movement to bolster New Mexico’s film industry, and the booming landscape of online distribution presents unique opportunities for creatives living here—established and newcomers alike. “It’s a really exciting time for content creators,” Zlotoff says. “It’s a brave new world. It used to be unless you got a movie studio or network to fund or distribute whatever you made, there was no way to get it to the audience. With the internet … if you can build a better mousetrap and entice people to nibble on the cheese, then they’re yours.” Such was the thinking behind SFN’s creation, which allows New Mexico film-
makers to share their work online for free viewing. The project grew out of work from the Santa Fe Film and Digital Media Commission, and also is part of the Emerging Media Alliance, a network of groups here working across mediums and genres. SFN Vice President Adam Shaening-Pokrasso, who has been on the digital commission since it began almost two years ago and also runs the creative agency 12FPS, says SFN “is really designed around cultivating a local and statewide network and platform for showcasing creative work.” The film industry is strong here, Shaening-Pokrasso says, particularly when it comes to production and post-production, but SFN seeks to bridge gaps the initial stages of project development and the final stages of distribution. “We need the ideas to not be coming from California … but to cultivate the writers we have here, and instead of leaving to be distributed … stays here to be distributed nationally and internationally.” SFN’s model already has attracted attention. “I think it’s the first place-based network, because we haven’t found another one,” Anna Darrah, SFN president, says. “Other places are interested, though, and asking a lot of questions because they think it’s a smart idea.” SFN celebrates its one-year anniversary and the launch of Our Own Devices with an open party on July 11. Zlotoff, one of SFN’s founders, sees the effort as one that will help build New Mexico’s standing in the industry. “I think Santa Fe and New Mexico, with just a little more effort,” he says, “could explode as the next ‘It’ state.” Stay tuned.

STRAIGHT TRIPPIN’ The artsy weirdo community of Madrid, New Mexico, lies a brief drive outside town, but isn’t always on tourists’ or locals’ must-do list. Santa Fe Variety Tours aims to fix this with a five-hour tour of the one-time mining, one-time ghost town. Pop by the restaurants, check out the Madrid Old Coal Town Museum or pick up contemporary art works at any of the numerous galleries. There’s a pretty sweet bar with live music, too and, for those of you still balking, a pretty glorious 1950s-esque soda shop. Chocolate malt, anyone? Meet on the Plaza and make it happen.

FILM FRI/13-SUN/15 ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE Nostalgic for the 1960s? Get a heavy dose at a screening of the classic Beatles animated feature Yellow Submarine, the first of many films scheduled to be shown at The Screen, the previously dormant theater now run by the Center for Contemporary Arts. The 1968 classic, illustrated by hand and animated frame by frame, takes place in Pepperland, where the peaceful denizens are under siege by the music-hating Blue Meanies. The Beatles come to the rescue on a yellow submarine, get holes in their pockets, sing their way past the dreaded Suckophant and finally conquer with their groovy tunes. Psychedelic effects abound. (Roan Lee-Plunket) Yellow Submarine: 3:45 pm Friday-Sunday July 13-15. $8-$11. The Screen, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive, 473-6494.
MUSIC MON/16 ENTER THE CHAMBER We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: There are benefits in exposing young folks to the powers of classical music. And nobody knows this better than the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, the yearly event that brings the chamber music ruckus to Santa Fe like clockwork, even hosting a little something for the kids. Not only does the Youth Concert give the musical context needed to painlessly dip a toe into the world of chamber music, they’ll probably provide a bit of history to flesh out the ol’ cultural CV. Will this performance from the Orion String Quartet turn your kids into brain surgeons? Who knows—but it probably won’t hurt their chances.

That’s All Folky Celebrate the 15th anniversary of the world’s largest folk art market “Beautiful objects,” says Khristaan Villela, the director of the Museum of International Folk Art, are something we can all come together around even if we do not share language, religion or creed—these things that are “not only beautiful, but also lead to significant improvement in people’s lives.” Such as Aissata Namoko, a Malian artist who makes indigo-dyed clothing and home accessories. In 2004, she started Djiguiyasa Cooperative in Bamako to cultivate a skilled workforce of woman artists. The profits Namoko and her cooperative made selling work at the International Folk Art Market last year allowed them to buy a solar array for a local school so that children have lights to read by. “The question is, what does it actually mean to have impact in your home community?” Villela asks. “In some cases, the artists have been able to buy vehicles, whereas they used to have to walk hours to get to the field where they harvest things like indigo.” Namoko is one of 162 artists from 53 countries who will sell work at this year’s International Folk Art Market, bringing the number of countries represented since the market’s founding in 2004 to 98, about half the world’s total count. Other artists Villela is looking forward to at market this year include Pedro Or-
tega Lozano, a self-taught Mexican artist who makes visually striking retablos out of cut paper, and Carla Fernández, a Mexico City-based fashion designer who has traveled her country cataloging Indigenous garments, and “has pioneered a model of how designers can work with Native communities,” Villela says. Leading the Thursday artist procession and serving as the honorary chair of this year’s market is Bangladesh-born Nobel Peace Prize-winning economist Muhammad Yunus. Yunus is known for creating the concept of microcredit—lending small amounts of money to impoverished people, usually women, to pursue entrepreneurship as a means of escaping poverty. Also on Thursday on the Plaza, the Chilean musicians Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna perform traditional South American music with global influences, including rock and jazz. Ilabaca occasionally brings an accordion onstage. In addition to the main market on Museum Hill, events across town go on all weekend.

OG Willikers’ Lights On For Safety is the newest feat of local hip-hop collective B Y E VA R O S E N F E L D i n t e r n @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
ights On For Safety is an album title that has been floating around rapper Zach Maloof’s consciousness for a decade, originally as an acoustic folk album title, now excavated from old notes and re-appropriated to christen Maloof’s (aka OG Willikers) new hip-hop effort, out July 11. The phrase’s original meaning has long dissipated, and now whatever significance it carries is the cumulative weight of having stuck around long enough to absorb transformation. The same could be said for most of the objects that have lasted in Maloof’s orbit throughout his dramatic musical evolution. The RaRa Room, where I met Maloof, started out as a teenage band practice room during his pop-punk days, lasted through the singer-songwriter folk rock era of his early 20s, and now serves as the de facto hub of Outstanding Citizens Collective, the Santa Fe hip-hop collective in which OG now raps. It’s also where he hosts RaRa Room Radio, a local music podcast. The room is “a shrine to local independent music and comic book nerdness,” Maloof says. Sure enough, past show flyers paper the walls, and when he pulls open a file cabinet full of titles, he cautions: “You would think these are records, but they’re comic books.” He’s scavenged studio parts from his many gigs in Santa Fe’s music world. Lights On produces the same sensation that time has been compiled into one composite object. It sounds like a saga of personal growth, but its would-be streamlined narrative progression is

made disjointed—and more interesting— by Maloof’s many collaborators. The album boasts over 20, and genre and sound oscillate from track to track based on who’s featured. Four tracks in the middle of the album are heavily influenced by Amazonian musicians, friends and family Maloof met while traveling through Peru. He is reluctant to call the album spiritual for fear of coming off as moralizing, but on certain songs it becomes impossible to deny. Some of the album’s most clever and compelling moments come out of artists bringing their particular spiritual roots in conversation with hip-hop traditions. ABOVE: Zach Maloof, In “Toma,” an ode to aka OG Willikers, drops his newest, Lights On For Mother Earth, Santa Fe-based Safety and performs at artist Asliani raps: “She opens Buffalo Thunder’s Shadeh the road / For us to put down this week. BELOW: Street artsit Wonky designed the that heavy load / Con esta albums’s art (opposite). madre, I have yet to commune / But I sense she may be calling to me soon … Madre, ven a mi and show me how to make it rain.” Legun, a producer on the album, is a water protector from Kewa Pueblo. If the collaborators feel like a part of Maloof’s personal narrative, it’s because they are; the album is as much a product of Outstanding Citizens Collective as it is a solo project. “I’ve never done anything by myself,” Maloof tells me, despite recording, mixing and mastering the record alone. Outstanding Citizens (minus the “Collective”) began in 2008 with four local rappers: Wolfman Jack, Benzo, Fluid and Symmetry. OG Willikers was in a rap group called State of the Mingo that often played alongside Outstanding Citizens. In 2015,

MUSIC Maloof met the graffiti artist Wonky, who had recently moved back to Santa Fe from Texas. Maloof was working his day job at the Draft Station when he overheard Wonky talking about hip-hop. The two became fast friends. Around the same time, members of Outstanding Citizens were discussing the possibility of forming a collective, and Maloof brought Wonky into the seam. In January 2017, over 20 potential collaborators gathered in the RaRa Room to launch plans and an Instagram account. “We decided to call it the Outstanding Citizens Collective, which made it much bigger, wider, vaster—a concept instead of it just being a rap group,” Maloof explains. This broader definition allowed for the inclusion of DJs and visual artists. It also meant less squabbling over “small-town stuff” and more collaboration across projects. “We’re all solo artists,” Maloof continues. “It goes, ‘What can you do for the collective, and what can the collective do for you?’ We’re not here to make anyone’s career; we’re here to support people’s careers—sometimes it’s a record label. For [Wonky], we threw an art opening and we were his art management. Now it’s my turn; the support is circling around me now.” Wonky designed the album cover for Lights On, a street sign surrounded by his alternatingly swoopy and geometric lettering and abstract graphics. He usually uses markers or spray paint for his work, a style that’s rarely found in Santa Fe’s galleries. “[Street art] is not big here at all,” Wonky says. “You might find some stuff at a pop art gallery, or here and there you’ll see something and think, ‘Oh, that’s kinda flavor.’ KEEP Contemporary is the only spot that’s showing some dope stuff.” The unsanctioned scene, though, is thriving, according to Wonky. “Santa Fe is a graffiti hub. A lot of people don’t know that,” he says. “If you pay attention to little stickers, you’ll see shit from all over the place. So-and-so’s in town … and abandoned shit out in the middle of New Mexico. There’s a massive graffiti culture, but none of it’s professional.” Wonky and OG cite similar dilemmas for hip-hop and graffiti in the local scene. “If you want to be a gigging musician,” OG says, “You have to play alt.country, Americana, cover band stuff—that’s the only way to make money. It’s the same with art.” Wonky puts it more bluntly: “Everyone’s looking for a painting of a mesa or some shit.” What venues did support Outstanding Citizens Collective have mostly closed; they were regulars at the Underground,
where Wonky used to do live art and sell decorated lighters and stickers while musicians performed. OG looks back on this time affectionately. “Basement dive bar, a little grungy,” he remembers. “Run by this dude Johnny Pink. Slicked-back hair, leather jacket, crass, didn’t drink. Loved him. Hated hip-hop but loved us. It was more communal. If anything we’d just be rapping to each other.” This era comes through in OG’s music. On the song “What I Do It For,” he raps, “It’s easy to frown when you play a show with no crowd / You say nobody must like hiphop in this town.”
“But for me, the most exciting time for the [collective] was when we started growing out of there. When we played Meow Wolf and the entire place was packed. We knew who went where and where to stand,” he says. “People are getting older here. We don’t have time to just be fucking around anymore. [Wonky and I] are two of the only members who don’t have kids.” Maloof’s July 11 album release, featuring Outstanding Citizens Collective members Fluid, Benzo, Anthonius Monk and Fred Been Stoned, also launches the collective’s first tour. The members hope to spearhead community engagement programs in the next year, like youth workshops and mentorship programming. “I don’t see big money in my future,” Maloof says, “Just satisfaction that even if I quit tomorrow—or let’s say after the tour—I won’t feel like I never tried.” LIGHTS ON FOR SAFETY ALBUM RELEASE PARTY 8 pm Wednesday July 11. $10-15.

ried a gay friend might hire a hit man to off the girlfriend so he can have a shot at your heart, come out to him as hetero-romantic at the same time you come out to him as bi.
Longtime Savage Love fanboy with a bit of a conundrum—and it’s your fault! I’m a bi man in my 30s. To use Charles M. Blow’s word, my bisexuality is “lopsided.” This means that I fall in love with women exclusively, but I love to have sex with men occasionally. My current girlfriend not only approves, she likes to join in. We have a great kinky sex life, and at times we invite a hot bi dude to join us. You keep saying that to counter bisexual erasure, it is the duty of every bisexual to come out of the closet. If I were a “proper” bisexual, i.e., romantically interested in men also, that would be no problem—my family and work and social circles are extremely liberal. However, your advice to us kinksters and people in open relationships is that we probably shouldn’t come out to our parents or colleagues, since when it comes to sex, it’s advisable to operate on a need-to-know basis. While I agree with this completely—my mother doesn’t need to know my girlfriend pegs me—the rule keeps me in the closet as well. Since I’m only sexually interested in men, wouldn’t I be revealing facts about my sex life if I came out as bi? I also wouldn’t want to mislead gay men into thinking that I’m available for romantic relationships with them. So which rule is more important: the duty to come out as a bisexual or the advice to operate on a need-to-know basis when it comes to your sex life? -Bisexual Leaning Out Warily There’s nothing improper about your bisexuality, BLOW—or Charles M. Blow’s bisexuality, or the bisexuality of other “lopsided” bisexuals. While the idea that bisexuals are equally attracted to men and women sexually and romantically used to be pushed by a lot of bi activists (“I fall in love with people, not genitals!”), it didn’t reflect the lived/ fucked/sucked experience of most bisexuals. Like you and Blow (hetero-romantic bisexuals), many bisexuals have a strong preference for either women or men as romantic partners. My recently “gay married” bisexual friend Eric, however, is one of those bi-romantic bisexuals. This popular misconception—that bisexuals are indifferent to gender (and more highly evolved than all those genital-obsessed monosexuals)— left many people who were having sex with men and women feeling as if they didn’t have an identity. Not straight, not gay, and disqualified from bi. But thanks to bisexuals like Blow coming out and owning their bisexuality and their lopsidedness, a more nuanced and inclusive understanding of bisexuality has taken root. That nuance is reflected in bisexual activist Robyn Ochs’s definition of bisexuality: “I call myself bisexual,” Ochs says, “because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted—romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.” Lopsided or not, BLOW, you’re a proper bisexual, and if you’re in a position to come out to your family and friends, you should. And rest assured, telling people you’re bi doesn’t mean you’re divulging details about your sex life. You’re disclosing your sexual orientation, not detailing your sexual practices. You can tell someone you’re attracted to men and women—at the same time, in your case, if not in the same way—without telling them about the hot bi dudes you and the girlfriend bed together. And if you and the girlfriend are perceived to be monogamous, and you want to keep it that way, you can allow people to continue to make that assumption. Finally, BLOW, most gay men are aware that bi guys usually aren’t romantically interested in other men. And that’s fine—so long as hetero-romantic bi guys don’t mislead us, most gay men are down to fuck. (And gay men who won’t date homo-romantic or bi-romantic men? You guys are missing out. My friend Eric was a hot, hung, adventurous catch. Congrats, Christian!) And since you’re partnered and presumed to be monogamous, you’re also presumed to be unavailable. But if you’re wor-

Bi married man here. I was always out to my wife, but two months ago, I came out to our tight circle of friends. Everyone has been supportive, and I’m glad I took this step. But on three different occasions, my wife’s best friend has loudly asked me whose cock I would most like to suck out of all the other guys at the party. My birthday is coming up, and I don’t want her there. My wife doesn’t want to offend her oldest friend, and she makes excuses like “She was drunk” or “She was only joking.” I told my wife that I wouldn’t be coming to my own birthday party if her friend was invited, but she invited her anyway “by accident.” (She sent the invite via group text.) She doesn’t want to confront or disinvite her friend because that would be awkward. What do we do? -Her Unthinking Buddy Bad Yucks Here’s what you’re going to do, HUBBY: You’re going to ask your wife how she would feel if a friend of yours was sexually harassing her and you made excuses for that friend (“He was drunk!”) and then “accidentally” invited that asshole to her birthday party. Then if she won’t call her friend and retract the invitation, you do it. It will be awkward, that’s for sure, but your wife’s friend shouldn’t be spared that awkwardness. Lord knows she made things awkward for you—don’t hesitate to return the favor. I am a 23-year-old bisexual woman and I have two questions for you: (1) Is it possible to fall in love differently with women than with men? I think I am bisexual because I have been in love with some women, despite never getting past a kiss. What I find strange is that whereas with men I feel immediate attraction, with women the attraction rises after a deep friendship is formed. (2) Is it possible that I was in love with two different people at the same time? I always thought that I could be in love with only one person at a time, but during that short span, I was in love with both a guy who made me suffer and my best friend, a woman, who helped me with that guy. After I found a new boyfriend, I stopped thinking about anyone else because our relationship is closed. But I don’t know if that’s just because I avoid thinking about others or because I wasn’t really in love with the two people (despite my surprisingly real heartbreak). -Bisexual In Need And Inquiring Finally 1. See my response to BLOW, above. 2. A person can love more than one parent, more than one child, more than one sibling, more than one set of tit clamps, and more than one romantic partner. Telling people they can feel romantic love for only one person at a time isn’t just stupid, it’s harmful. Let’s say Bill is partnered with Ted, and Bill believes romantic attraction/love is a one-ata-time phenomenon because that’s what he was told. Now let’s say Bill develops a crush on Sandra. If Bill doesn’t question the one-at-a-time bullshit he was taught to believe about romantic love, Bill is highly likely to think, “Well, I must not be in love with Ted anymore, otherwise I couldn’t feel this way about Sandra,” and then he may dump triedand-true Ted for shiny-and-new Sandra. I’m not arguing that everyone should be poly— most people want only one partner at a time, and that’s fine. But telling people they can’t experience romantic attraction or romantic love for more than one person at a time sets long-term relationships up for failure. Because while stable, lasting love feels amazing, it’s less intoxicating than shiny, new, cum-drunk love. And while almost all stable, lasting loves were shiny, new, cum-drunk loves early on, very few new loves become lasting loves. If we don’t want people tossing lasting love overboard every time they develop feelings for someone new, people need to know that, yes, you can be in love with two different people at the same time.

If there were such a thing as a city having a Flamenco Master General, it would certainly be Emily Grimm, aka La Emi. For decades now, Grimm has honed her flamenco skills at home and abroad, and now, with her EmiArte Flamenco studio dedicated to teaching and with a number of summer performances lined up (8 pm Friday-Sunday July 13-15. $20-$50. The Lodge at Santa Fe, 750 N St. Francis Drive, 992-5800), we thought we’d see what’s up. (Alex De Vore)
+ INJURIES & ILLNESS + X-RAYS + PHYSICALS + LAB TESTS + VACCINATIONS + DRUG TESTING + DOT EXAMS Locally owned and operated by Dr. Victor Sherman and Dr. Troy Watson WHERE TO FIND US 831 South St. Francis Drive, just north of the red caboose.
How’d you get that nickname? When I was born—my name is Emily Ruth Grimm, that’s my birth certificate name—my mom and dad would always call me Emi. Since I was a few months old. Where I’m from in Northern New Mexico—my parents own a house in Chamisol—we’d say ‘La Emi’ or ‘El David,’ that’s just kind of how we talked, and it just stuck. And I thought, what better stage name?
How did you know you wanted to or were ready to teach? I actually started teaching when I was 12 years old in the Northern New Mexico public schools, and I guess I enjoyed it. It was definitely intimidating at first. At 15, I started teaching at the Maria Benitez Institute for Spanish Arts and at Moving Arts Española. I taught for several years, I would say close to 10, and I feel like God’s plan kicked into play and everything pointed me in the direction of opening my own studio. I started traveling more and more more with dancing and, of course, they would have to have a teacher available at Maria’s institute all year round, so I’d get back from my travels and they’d have teachers there [in my place]. So I wouldn’t say I felt ready, but life shoved me out of the nest, and I really wanted to bring the community together.
David Griego invites you to join us on FRIDAY, JULY 13, when we sponsor Santa Fe Bandstand’s Music on the Plaza with LUMBRE del SOL!
For people who maybe don’t know exactly what flamenco is, how do you get them out to the show? Flamenco has the three big parts—more can come into play, but it’s always a singer, a dancer and a guitarist. This summer, we’ll have two singers: Vicente Griego, an incredible singer from Dixon, and the other singer is José Fernández, a gypsy from Granada. He’s grown up doing flamenco since he was 9. Sometimes we have two guitarists, like Chuscales—what a high honor to have him there—and Eloy Gonzales, he’s a young guy. This summer is a partnership with the National Institute of Flamenco, with [Joaquin] Encinas providing the artistic direction. In the show, we’re going to have several different numbers from different artists and six core dancers who are female. Flamenco is an art of the people, and we really want people to experience the journey with us.
Register at 3:00pm the day of the event to win a Gold Zia Pendant with a 1.1 carat diamond!

Hot Wax in the Summer Time The Museum of Encaustic Art focuses on the near and present danger of global warming Jones—an age when a sizable percentage of our country believes lizard people roam the earth. “Facts matter” is the weirdly not-currently-straightforward thesis of Global Warming is REAL, which opens this Saturday afternoon at the Museum of Encaustic Art. During a recent visit to the surprisingly large space, near Joseph’s on Agua Fría Street, I learned the organization is the largest of its kind in the world. Who knew?

COURTESY MUSEUM OF ENCAUSTIC ART
uring a recent Sunbathing Sunday™, a friend fished out a book about occult practices. The subject is not really my bag, but got me thinking about how we like to learn about things; specifically, how we either like to be surprised by information or not, bookwise. There’s no right or wrong way to pick up a book. Every reader has their own style, born from the primordial goop of our first inklings of what we do and don’t want to know about. Growing up in rural Florida, emerging from the aforementioned goop can be tricky—yet Mom found ways to inspire Sis and me in the almost-alwaysempty, air-conditioned bliss of our county’s public libraries. It was here where I first discovered Mom did something confounding: She would pick up a book and head straight for its very last page, reading the conclusion usually with a barely perceptible, satisfied little nod, then almost always put the book back on the shelf. Because she usually turns up her nose at fiction (to which I still silently wail, “But Cheever! But Murdoch! But Updike!”) this is her pattern, her means of appraising the ultimate readability of a book. Art shows don’t have much in common with novels, I don’t think; but those with names like Global Warming is REAL appeal to Mom, who doesn’t like curve balls, and me, who wants surprises. In any case, a show about global warming seems important in an age of fake news and Alex
Encaustic work is relatively rare in the larger scheme of art things, even though people have been making artwork with beeswax since 450 BC, and you almost certainly have worked with wax yourself— Crayola crayons, anyone? Now in its second iteration, the show’s focus, says Museum Director and Founder Douglas Mehrens, will always be on global warming. “Always,” he repeats with a wry chuckle, “until global warming doesn’t exist anymore.” Of course, this isn’t likely to be the case anytime soon, and though Mehrens isn’t thrilled with the current political situation, he says carefully, “I didn’t want the show to be images of Trump, or be overly politicized.” That leaves a large group—50 artists in all, selected from a pool of over 80 applicants—whose work relates to, but doesn’t necessarily directly address, the show’s theme.
Noon-5 pm Saturday, July 14. $5-$9. Museum of Encaustic Art, 632 Agua Fría St., 989-3283

Mehrens cites Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth as inspiration. “I thought this would be a really great topic for artists to reflect on,” he says, “to examine how we assimilate and personalize scientific information about global warming.” Most of the artists, only around a fifth of whom are local, work in the technique of hot wax painting, using heated beeswax to which pigment is added, then applying it in liquid or paste form to the surface of any number of materials. One particularly striking piece, “Entropy II” by Belen Millan, came all the way from Spain: a large wood panel, soaked with warm, fire-toned washes of color, with a bottom ridge splattered in dripping wax. Many others in the show, which will be up through early September, look deceptively like paintings, with relatively flat appearances whose true nature only emerges upon closer inspection, belying a depth that’s somehow both opaque and luminous. Local artist Angel Wynn’s “Ain’t No Joke” seems to address the theme of global warming, albeit cautiously, with a lone and weirdly lonely looking dead tree surrounded by blue sky above and parched earth below. Some of the works are for sale, based on the artist’s decision—an unorthodox choice for museum exhibitions, and one I’d like to see repeated more often. The institution also has lectures scheduled, as well as an open mic and programs for children as part of the exhibition. I suppose if you did think about the show’s title as a book, it would be somewhat of a “gotcha” title, since entering the museum provides an opportunity to see works that aren’t always obviously linked to our ever-hotter planet. Still, sometimes it’s good to know what you’re getting into from the very start—right, Mom? GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL OPENING RECEPTION

ACTING OUT For Lack of Flash-Bangs ew Mexico Actors Lab shows are not flashy. They’re not exhilarating, they’re not heart-pounding. There are no pyrotechnics involved and, in Sam Shepard’s Ages of the Moon, up now at Teatro Paraguas, when Ames shoots a ceiling fan with a shotgun, the resulting white smoke that spews from the fixture is the most technically advanced thing I’ve seen from a NMAL production in a year. They’re all about talk and intricate character relationships; you must pay attention, because there are no flash-bangs to snap you out of a daydream, should you slip into one. That being said, these shows are almost always nicely done. Every time I see a NMAL production, usually directed by the company’s founder Robert Benedetti, I can’t help but think they’re like having consistently good sex with a long-term spouse: It’s not wild infatuation, it’s not adolescent lust, you don’t fidget all the next day desperate to do it again—but you also won’t ever turn down another go-around, it’s just what you need, and everyone goes to sleep satisfied. The one-act Ages of the Moon is no exception. Opening weekend sold well, with Saturday’s performance even requiring extra chairs tucked into corners—not unexpected for the first Shepard piece presented in town since the sometimes-Santa Fean writer died in 2017. It’s an expectedly gruff and surly two-actor piece from the pensive man’s-man of playwrights; in short order
we learn that Ames’ wife has found a name and phone number written in a girlish hand on one of his fishing maps, and kicked him out of the house. He retreats to his man-cave, a cabin in some Kentucky woods, where he calls up his old friend Byron in tears, speaking of ending his life. The show opens on the two sexagenarian men on the porch, drinking copious whiskey and waxing poetic about the past—polka-dot dresses and matching high-heels, drunken-stoned nights, all the wonderful ways things used to be and LYNN ROYLANCE

will never be again. This show is another casting success from Benedetti. He’s spent a storied career learning how to recognize talent, assembling an experienced and deft company of sorts, and the dependably good folks he gets onstage together almost always succeed. “My book on directing starts with the statement that ‘directing is the art of correcting the mistakes you made in casting,’” Benedetti tells me via email. “I first of all try to internalize the life of the play at a deeply preverbal level … [and] to create an environment in which that energy can manifest itself anew, without premeditating how the play will live in these particular actors and in this particular space; rather I strive to be fully present and open to the actors’ impulses and interactions.” Here, expectedly, Nicholas Ballas (Ames) and Paul Blott (Byron) have most of that necessary chemistry. Once they get rolling, the script carries them effortlessly for the show’s hour-long duration. Shepard’s work harks to the manlyman-literature cornerstones Brokeback Mountain and A River Runs Through It, both favorites greatly due to their contrasts: Dudes in the woods doing dude-in-the-woods things (herding sheep, fishing, being generally stoic), but also quietly struggling with intense emotions and fighting to maintain societal expectations at every turn. Ages does this too; within a few minutes of opening, Ames is discussing a “minor blow job” (Byron is flabbergasted that such a thing could ever be anything but major) and Byron is lamenting his waning
ability to get it up. Fishing rods hang on the wall, guns are drawn, violence makes its way in; so many misandrist tropes that you expect (though perhaps don’t desire) from a play about men. The surliness wanes, however, and they become deeply human. Blott’s Byron, at first the more irreverent of the two, delivers a haunting monologue, one of the best I’ve heard in a while, about love and loss and possible total insanity; and Ballas exhibits great range as Ames swings from despondent Good Ol’ Boy to one who suffers from—again—possible total insanity. Whenever you think the show’s jumped the shark, it pulls itself right back in an almost palpable collective sigh. If there aren’t literal pyrotechnics, Shepard’s writing provides plenty of dynamism in character and story. All that being said of men and manliness, this show is, all told, centered on the concept of the woman. The title, at first easily forgettable, must be remembered: The men have met on a night that there will be a total eclipse of the moon. Byron, when drunkenly opining about women and how they function differently from rooted, earthbound men, gestures to the moon and suggests: “They’re plugged into it, somehow.” Later, wrapped in a blanket on the porch, he mumbles more: “I want to see this moon—this miracle, here,” repeating a running joke that the eclipse, a frequent phenomenon, could be a oncein-a-lifetime experience. The play opens with Ames saying that he likes things to be what they are; a tree a tree, a man a man, a moon a moon. And while all is mostly as it seems here (two men, a porch, whiskey), there are endless layers down into subterranean fractal caves of implication. These guys must be crazier and much bigger assholes than they are letting us see; or are they far more sensitive and soft than their sullied, surly appearances suggest? Mankind, rooted in the earth, eclipses womankind in the moon, throwing deep shadow. A finnicky ceiling fan becomes a foil for Catholic hocus-pocus. Even the set and the blocking, results of edited impulse, are constructed with meaning: “The space must be an expression of the event,” Benedetti writes of the building and the movements therein. But pay close attention, because there are no flashing lights to show the way. AGES OF THE MOON
Sure, Byron (Paul Blott) and Ames (Nicholas Ballas) curse and tell lewd stories and drink copious whiskey and pull guns on each other, but dammit if they ain’t secret softies after all.

L’Olivier When in France, order the escargots. Do this when you’re at L’Olivier downtown as well. Snails for starters ($13.50) mark a path to a memorable meal at this bistro that’s the first one chef Xavier Grenet has owned. The chef is a native of Paris who’s been in more than a few successful kitchens, and this tiny restaurant with a spacious patio has a smooth ambiance. The escargots is served as it should be—with slivered almonds, sauteed spinach and cherry tomatoes, combining for a pleasing salty, acidic and savory flavor. Beautiful fish and steak cuts are of course on the classic menu, but for a night that’s plant-based, you won’t even miss the meat in the wild rice, its chewy grains topped with juicy mushrooms and colored with cranberries and roasted beets ($20). Splurge on meaty wines like Bordeaux from Château Grivier ($18 per glass) and crystal-clear Picpoul de Pinet ($13 per glass) from the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. There’s even French-born Badoit sparkling water ($6.50) to complete the temporary trip. (JAG)
PC’s Restaurant & Lounge We are not exaggerating: The chicharron burrito arrived at the table measuring a full 8 inches long, 4 inches wide and 2 inches thick. That’s 64 cubic inches of cheese and Christmas chilesmothered home cooking for under $9. PC’s is a giant at one of the busiest corners in Santa Fe, but somehow remains hidden. The spacious dining room is accommodating to a large party for a birthday dinner, two people snuggled in a corner or a family at a booth. And we saw all of them on our visit. Plus the separate bar area has plenty of tables with sightlines to televisions that play NFL in the fall, MLB in the spring and all those other sports alphabets you know and love. The sign says authentic New Mexican, and they ain’t lyin’. Experience crunchy fried chunks of pork skins next to creamy pintos with some respectable chile (hearty, hot green and smoky, smooth red), or a generous burger on a good bun ($8.15). Sit long enough to let that settle so there’s room to order a smooth and sweet bowl of natillas for dessert ($4). A couple years ago, the mayor proposed that residents levy a tax on sugary beverages and Santa Femous Southsiders decried the plan. “What’s next, a tax on chicharrones?” You’d pay extra for these, but you don’t have to.

315 Restaurant and Wine Bar Louis Moskow’s 315 has quietly become a Santa Fe fine-dining staple over the past two decades. The atmosphere inside the home-turned-restaurant is both intimate and convivial. Service is attentive and efficient but not overbearing. You would expect a French-inspired restaurant to get its sauces right, and Moskow’s kitchen doesn’t disappoint. The squash blossom beignets ($14) are delicately battered and quickly fried to find a happy home atop a goat cheese fondue and drizzled with a lively tomato basil sauce. The pan-roasted sea bass ($30) is served with sticky jasmine rice and a black olive saffron fennel butter, accented with lemon juice and shimeji mushrooms. It’s exciting and varied without overwhelming the flavor of the fish. You’d be remiss passing on dessert. Even when we were full, a single scoop ($3) of house-made pineapple brown sugar sorbet was divine. The restaurant’s seemingly endless wine list (from which bottles are half-off on Tuesdays) has a pairing for every dish and a wide selection of half bottles and wines by the glass. Moskow recently added a select few spirits, including pastis for a hot summer afternoon or an early fall evening on the patio. (Matt Grubs)

Wild Culture Patrick’s Probiotics brings the health benefits of the microbiome to the Railyard BY MARY FRANCIS CHEESEMAN a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
ating fermented foods is an incredibly nutritious and essential practice, and the Western diet has thankfully been expanding beyond old standbys like wine, beer, cheese and bread to include other, wilder options, such as kefir. This milk-based drink originated in the central Asian Caucasus mountains, and is fermented to eliminate lactose and prevent spoilage. But kefir is actually created by “grains,” which are colonies of yeast and bacteria that almost look like rock candy in their solid form. With numerous applications even beyond the culinary—kefir makes for fine compost tea for soil, or an addition to face and body scrubs—it can be used in water as well, which is how Patrick’s Probiotic Fine Foods makes its lineup of slightly effervescent, light-bodied sodas. Founded in 2016 by Shawn and Lyn Patrick, Patrick’s Probiotics moved in 2017 into the space formerly occupied by the Aztec Café. Beyond the storefront, however, their sodas are available at 25 different locations, including Meow Wolf, Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen and Body of Santa Fe. The Patricks are Silicone Valley tech industry expatriates, he a former CMO and she a former business manager to an ergonomic software company. Together they now focus their considerable knowledge and business acumen on a shared passion for making things that taste good on the palate and feel good in the gut. Four years of experimentation led to the genesis of a kefir culture the couple named Áine, after the Celtic goddess of the summertime. And though the practice
of naming a culture and treating it like a living being may seem strange, it is not historically uncommon. With kefir as their starter, the Patricks are focused on contributing to wellness by encouraging customers to embrace the broader world of fermentation. Fermenting acts as a preservative, eliminates toxins, breaks food down into more easily digestible forms and creates new nutrients—in the case of kefir, those would be vitamins, amino acids and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. For the purposes of the café, more foods will be added to the lineup, such as hummus made from sprouted chickpeas and breads from Wild Leaven Bakery in Taos. The Patricks, meanwhile, are firm in their commitment to “living foods,” and their ultimate goal for the café is to diversify. “We also will be using our platform to extend into other food areas, such as hot sauces, dressings and ketchups,” Shawn tells SFR. “The idea is to displace sugary, processed food with a better-tasting probiotic alternative.” Three such hot sauces are available at $1 apiece for the café’s breakfast burrito: a Hatch green chile, habanero and taco sauce, each made with a different chile base and accented with herbs and spices. I dubbed taco my favorite, a blend of ancho, arbol and Hatch red mixed with tomato, smoked paprika and turmeric. The burritos themselves are on the smaller side, clocking in at $2.99 each for a combination of artificial hormone-free cheese, cagefree eggs and nitrate-free bacon. Fermented foods tend to have strong flavors—think of cheese, sauerkraut, miso or kefir’s most easy comparison, kombucha, which tastes not unpleasantly like

vinegar. But kefir is relatively flavorless, and the sodas are light and delicate, tasting of fruit accented by floral and herbal notes. “We are really approaching these drinks more like a wine vintner, where every characteristic matters,” Shawn says. “We also are focused on simplicity, which is why pineapple, raspberry and peach [are the only flavors]. We want people to understand what we are shooting for.” I sampled all three varieties ($4.25 for 12 ounces), but the peach won out in the end. Its lush stone fruit overtures tasted fantastic with the fizzy bite of the kefir soda water. A slight tang of lemon and hints of orange peel, rose hips and hibiscus provided plenty of interesting secondary flavors, and though the drink also contained hawthorn berries, chamomile and blackberry leaves, these ingredients didn’t really impact the taste. I added ice cubes made of kefir and coconut cream for $3 more, which turned the texture into more of a creamy Italian soda. The Patricks also serve mocktails ($7.25), such as a sangria that consists of a blend of all three sodas poured on top of raw coconut, pineapple and berries then finished with elderberry hibiscus-infused ice cubes. It made for a refreshing treat on a hot July afternoon. Coffee options are
available from local organic roaster Agapao as well, and the menu is nascent but expanding. Small (and in some cases, gluten-free and Paleo-friendly) bites are available, with a few options such as a sourdough cultured croissant and a cinnamon swirl ($4.95). Bags of organic popcorn with a probiotic seasoning are featured for $3, topped with either powdered cheddar cheese or Hatch chile and lime. The spirit of the Aztec Café is ever present, with the Patricks paying homage to the once-loved local coffee shop that occupied their space by preserving an arty, vaguely Western steampunk vibe. Antebellum chairs from the 1900s sit beside wooden tables made by Albuquerque artist Stitch Jackson, and books and Harpers magazines from over 100 years ago are available to read. A player piano from 1900 sits against a wall decorated with pictures of cows and horses, and the Patricks are hoping to display art from local artists and host musicians and community events in the future, further contributing to Santa Fe’s culture in more ways than one.

Westwood : Punk, Icon, Activist Review Punk-rock styles and maintaining independence in the fashion world
BY ROAN LEE-PLUNKET S F R i n t e r n @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
If you’ve never heard of her, Vivienne Westwood is the 77-year-old British fashion designer and creator of the label that shares her name. More importantly, Westwood is known for being the original creator of punk fashion around the time the Sex Pistols crashed onto the British culture scene in the 1970s. The new documentary Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist, like Westwood’s clothing, feels tangibly pieced together, jumping forward and backward in time with photographs, interviews, and footage from past and present. We learn that Westwood wasn’t always interested in becoming a designer, though she claims that she could have made a pair of shoes at the age of 3. Along the road to fame, she sold rock ’n’ roll records, rebelled against social norms, and became a mother and environmental activist before making the unusual decision to start a completely independent fashion label and falling in love with another designer 10 years her senior.

The rough documenting style can be confusing and frustrating at times, especially because the film doesn’t dive very deeply into its subjects. The world of punk and its origins are intriguing, but Westwood doesn’t provide much more than brief glimpses of the Sex Pistols; seeing as this is Westwood’s area of authority, you’d think the filmmakers would have spent more time there. We do get a clear picture of the person behind the label, along with some scandalous runway footage, yet this doc feels more like a summary than anything else. Compared to Frederich Tcheng’s fascinating 2014 film Dior et Moi, which thoroughly immerses the audience into the alien world of high fashion, there is
nothing particularly compelling about the story Westwood has to tell. Sure, there’s tension between Westwood and the people who work for her, and she struggles with maintaining the integrity of her brand while fighting for environmental rights, but these issues feel slapped on—nothing compared to the agony of restitching a whole dress overnight by hand. WESTWOOD: PUNK, ICON, ACTIVIST Directed by Lorna Tucker With Westwood, Andreas Kronthaler and Kate Moss Center for Contemporary Arts, NR, 83 min.

ANT MAN AND THE WASP
SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO
JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
SHOCK AND AWE
Woody Harrelson and James Marsden track fictitious WMDs in the torn-from-real-life Rob Reiner movie Shock and Awe. Spoiler: There weren’t any WMDs.
+ FEELS SO GOOD TO BE RIGHT - PRETTY HEAVY-HANDED AT TIMES
A baby-faced American soldier, wheelchairbound, glides silently across a courtroom floor and explains to a judge that he was boots-onthe-ground in Iraq for precisely three hours when a roadside IED tore through his squad, severing his spinal cord and killing the rest. “How the hell does this happen?” he angrily asks. This question is at the center of Rob Reiner’s Shock and Awe, a drama about the post-9/11 era of Bush-Cheney, the occupation of Iraq and the dangerous implications of a government lying to its people. But it’s also a tale of heroic journalism against seeming insurmountable odds and a sort of early-aughts parallel to that most famous newspaper movie of all time, All the President’s Men. It’s here we meet Warren Strobel (James Marsden) and Jonathan Landay (Woody Harrelson), two very real Knight-Ridder journos who unearthed the absurd motivations behind war in the Middle East post-9/11 despite a shocking lack of evidence, alongside their valiant chief editor John Walcott (Reiner). As the rest of the country’s mainstream
media pushes out the government’s false narrative (remember when the New York Times apologized to its readers?), Strobel and Landay follow the actual facts, reporting the truth as their friends and family and even the American public doubt their credibility and work. Today, of course, we know these men to have been right—Hussein may have been evil, but he certainly didn’t possess WMDs, nor was he in cahoots with Bin Laden; Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz and Bush and Cheney were … well, fuck ’em, we should’ve been in Afghanistan— the point is, these journalists were right and eventually acknowledged for their fine work and bravery. God bless the Fourth Estate, right? Still, for every satisfying moment or silly little in-joke about copy editing, there are truly perplexing choices. Like if the journalist Joe Galloway (Tommy Lee Jones) was so vital to Strobel and Landay’s ongoing good work, why is the role relegated to a few tired lines about how he’s old or how glory is for the young folk? And that war veteran from before? We catch snippets of his journey from small town boy to disabled former soldier, but as far as Shock and Awe’s “they’re sending your kids to a needless death!” agenda goes, it seems painfully underdeveloped and all too brief. Borderline emotionally manipulative, even. Perhaps Reiner CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

was really just looking to illustrate his point— y’know, to really drive it home—but they feel like scenes from a different film. And besides, we were pissed off enough already. Shock and Awe paints a fine history lesson, though, and a provides a good reminder that the good old US of A would be a hell of a lot more terrifying if there weren’t brave newspaper folk who’ve made it their lives’ work to shine a light on powerful assholes being assholes. Wow. Who would’ve thought a movie about kickass journalism would resonate with us? (Alex De Vore) Jean Cocteau Cinema, R, 90 min.
ANT MAN AND THE WASP
+ RUDD RULES; TINY STUFF IS SO FUN - WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS STUFF AGAIN? A RIDICULOUS REASON? OK, COOL.
With the recent spate of Marvel Studios films erring toward the awfully serious (obviously not counting Guardians of the Galaxy 2 or Thor: Ragnarok, itself basically a Guardians movie), it’s always enjoyable when things get a little less heavy-handed and more outlandishly fun. And that’s what the Ant Man series has already become known for, thanks to celebrated character actor and all-around charmer Paul Rudd as the onetime thief Scott Lang. Previously, Lang and his buds Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) foiled the evil Yellowjacket, a villain who tried to turn Pym’s shrink-a-majig technology into weaponized paraphernalia for shadowy governments and the like. This time, however, it’s a rescue mission when we learn that Pym’s wife Janet (Michelle Pfieffer) was thrust into the quantum void (now that’s small, baby!) 30-ish years ago,
Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly fight baddies and do science in Ant Man and the Wasp. but maybe she’s still alive even though she’d obviously have no access to food or water, but whatever—this is Marvel, motherfucker. The bad news, though, is that Lang is stuck serving out a two-year house arrest sentence because of his escapades in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War (the government has laws that work against superheroes doing superhero stuff). But when a mysterious baddie called Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) shows up to try and steal the aforementioned Pym tech, Lang and the gang have to hit the streets to do stuff. Caught up? Good. Rudd, who also co-wrote the script, is as wonderful as ever, a great combination of magnetic jokester and former criminal with a heart of gold. His posse (played here by Michael Peña, Tip “TI” Harris and some guy who isn’t a celebrity yet so who cares?) enters the fray as well, and the race against the clock begins because for some reason they only have two hours to get the wife out of the void. If this feels like a lot of exposition, it is. Ant Man and The Wasp is, in fact, mostly characters explaining things between fight scenes that, while fun, most often don’t really need to happen. If these people can shrink and enlarge at will, why do they ever bother fighting to retrieve things instead of sneaking in and out? It’s certainly thrilling to watch Ghost phase in and out of existence, but her backstory feels more like a tacked-on bit of trivia than a true motivator. Alas, as well, for the ultra-talented Laurence Fishburne’s appearance is minimal and tangental at best; Douglas is onscreen way too much and Lilly is dimensionless and bland. Thank goodness for Rudd, then, as he can carry just about anything and look great while
doing it. We know that looks shouldn’t matter, but let’s face it—they do. And in the end, we get another little slice of the overall Marvel universe, a respite from the melodrama and another summertime jam in a nice, cool theater. (ADV) Violet Crown, Regal, PG-13, 118 min.
SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO
+ KILLER BEGINNING; LANDSCAPES - THE SLOW BUT SURE DESCENT INTO BORING
But nothing ever goes as planned in movies (that’s pretty much the whole thing about movies), and as the sneaky cartel war kickoff party goes awry, we learn all kinds of nasty things about the cartels and America and even snotnosed teenagers whose cousins think it’s a good idea to turn them into illegal border crossing guides. Woof. What hurts the most is the first hour’s riveting setup and execution. We kind of love-hate Brolin’s character, Matt-something, but we also hate terrorists so, like, who’s the real bad guy here? We even start to develop a connection with the kidnapped cartel princess, which is right around the time the pacing slows to a slog and the players start to develop a collective conscience of some kind. Or do they? No, seriously—I’m asking. As always, Del Toro is pretty great and Brolin really has perfected his disaffected tough guy shtick, but when a fantastic character actor like Catherine Keener is underused to the tune of pointlessness and the rest of the characters don’t even get names outside of, probably, Shadowy Soldier 3, it stings. Director Stefano Sollima (you don’t know him, promise) does his best, and there are some downright gorgeous shots of the desert, but Sicario: Day of the Soldado loses us right at the moment we’d been hooked. Oh, it’s not that it isn’t mostly entertaining enough for the most part, it’s just that it seriously becomes boring. Drag. (ADV) Regal, Violet Crown, R, 122 min.
JURRASIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
I didn’t see the first Sicario movie. It was just one of those things where every time I had the chance I was like, “Eh, not in the mood.” The real downside of this, though, was that all of my “movie expert” buddies gave me long-winded speeches about how it was a glorious new take on the mafia movie (or something), and that Benicio del Toro was, like, so totally good. I still haven’t seen it. In the sequel, we join the clandestine world of shadowy government operatives who totally shift international power balances for the US government by doing subterfuge and torturing modern-day pirates and stuff. A returning Josh Brolin is one such guy—the kind of fixer who gets called in when the chips are down and gross stuff needs doing. This is why the Secretary of Defense (played here by Matthew Modine, who is presumably enjoying some Stranger Things heat) sends him to Mexico to kidnap a cartel king’s daughter so said cartel will start a war with some other cartel. My dumb friends could probably tell you the girl’s dad did something in the first movie, but I’ll just tell you that Alejandro (Del Toro) wants revenge on this sucker, so he gets involved, too.
+ DINOS ARE OBJECTIVELY AWESOME - JUST A STRAIGHT-UP BAD MOVIE
When Laura Dern and Sam Neil craned their necks to behold a wandering pack of brontosauruses in the original Jurassic Park 25 years ago, the music swelled, the emotions bubbled and audiences were filled with a deep sense of awe. When Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard run afoul of whatever dinosaurs happen their way in the franchise’s newest entry, it is painfully obvious that this series needs to go extinct. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a tired and way-too-long slog from JA Bayona, director of the excellent 2007 horror film The Orphanage. This bad boy doesn’t even register on the dumb summer popcorn flick scale thanks to its retreading of old material disguised as homage, parallel utter lack of acting and story quality, and heavy-handed performances from everyone throughout. When last we left our heroes, they’d escaped yet another dino theme park gone awry and now, just like in the third Jurassic Park (that’s the one where Sam Neil goes back to the island for some CONTINUED ON PAGE 43

Just ... ugh. reason), they must return on some misguided animal rights mission because—get this—turns out there was a volcano there the whole time and it’s active suddenly and nobody wants the dinos to die. Again. Oof. But it turns out the guys behind the mercy mission are animal traffickers hired by yet another generation of ne’er-do-wells (plus BD Wong, again, for who-knows-why) who plan on getting rich through dino-cloning and genetic manipulation; people start getting eaten and our heroes must intervene or, like, more people gonna get eaten. Pratt seems bored here as an animal behaviorist (yeah, right) and is not even allowed to do that rogue-ish smarm-charm for which he’s become known in better movies like Guardians of the Galaxy. Howard, meanwhile, brings no heat whatsoever to the role of a former exec now laboring under a nonprofit change of heart and trying to save animals because life is sacred or something. Other cast members exist, it’s just they matter so little that one almost wonders why they appear in the first place. Comic relief? Depth? If so, you’d never know it, and the script certainly isn’t doing them any favors, nor are the endless chase scenes, perilous moments of dino terror or beyond-silly narrative. With news of any Star Wars spinoffs biting the dust this week due to low box office numbers, we can only hope moviegoers enact a similar takedown of the Jurassic movies. Steven Spielberg captured something special with his first adaptation of the Michel Crichton universe all those years ago. Today’s attempts feel stale and business-like, the sort of product churned out to take advantage of nostalgia and a slap in the face of everyone who ever felt a sense of wonder for the idea of prehistoric beasts.

2:30 MARY SHELLEY thriving arts practice and gallery representation. But when an unspeakable accident occurs, the dynamic between the family is inextricably changed, and her entire existence begins to unravel while those closest to her begin to suspect she’s struggling with mental illness and misplaced grief. At her best, Collette achieves a measured balance between protective mother, loving wife and grieving woman; at her worst, she errs too far toward hammy. Still, her character is believably flawed and human even as we question whether her new circumstances are real or imagined (think Essie Davis’ wonderful sleep-deprived flirtation with insanity in the brilliant Australian horror film The Babadook). Elsewhere, Byrne is underused and middle sections drag under the weight of early shocking scenes. Alex Wolff (from that new Jumanji) stands out, however, as a son dealing with his own guilt and confusion, while newcomer Milly Shapiro helps supply spookylittle-kid vibes in a quiet, capable way. It is delightfully surprising, then, that the true revelations behind the family’s troubles are nothing like what early looks and trailers led us to believe. Instead, Hereditary becomes a twisted vision of sheer evil and artistry that takes its time and builds slowly, sometimes excruciatingly, right up to its bizarre, horrifying conclusion.

Aster’s world is one that feels all at once dreamlike and haunting, yet all too real, like a nightmare one can’t shake or a long-residing and throbbing pain from outside the physical realm. Here we meet Annie (Toni Collette), an artist and mother grappling with the recent death of her estranged mother.

MIND BODY SPIRIT ACUPUNCTURE Rob Brezsny
Week of July 11th
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your key theme right now is growth. Let’s dig in and analyze its nuances. 1. Not all growth is good for you. It may stretch you too far too fast — beyond your capacity to integrate and use it. 2. Some growth that is good for you doesn’t feel good to you. It might force you to transcend comforts that are making you stagnant, and that can be painful. 3. Some growth that’s good for you may meet resistance from people close to you; they might prefer you to remain just as you are, and may even experience your growth as a problem. 4. Some growth that isn’t particularly good for you may feel pretty good. For instance, you could enjoy working to improve a capacity or skill that is irrelevant to your longterm goals. 5. Some growth is good for you in some ways, and not so good in other ways. You have to decide if the trade-off is worth it. 6. Some growth is utterly healthy for you, feels pleasurable, and inspires other people.
confident that life will conspire to help you carry out this task. More than at any time since your birthday in 2015, this is the season for unleashing your smiles.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can’t sing with someone else’s mouth, Taurus. You can’t sit down and settle into a commanding new power spot with someone else’s butt. Capiche? I also want to tell you that it’s best if you don’t try to dream with someone else’s heart, nor should you imagine you can fine-tune your relationship with yourself by pushing someone else to change. But here’s an odd fact: You can enhance your possibility for success by harnessing or borrowing or basking in other people’s luck. Especially in the coming weeks. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You wouldn’t attempt to cure a case of hiccups by repeatedly smacking your head against a wall, right? You wouldn’t use an anti-tank rocket launcher to eliminate the mosquito buzzing around your room, and you wouldn’t set your friend’s hair on fire as a punishment for arriving late to your rendezvous at the café. So don’t overreact to minor tweaks of fate, my dear Gemini. Don’t over-medicate tiny disturbances. Instead, regard the glitches as learning opportunities. Use them to cultivate more patience, expand your tolerance, and strengthen your character. CANCER (June 21-July 22): I pay tribute to your dizzying courage, you wise fool. I stage-whisper “Congratulations!” as you slip away from your hypnotic routine and wander out to the edge of mysterious joy. With a crazy grin of encouragement and my fist pressed against my chest, I salute your efforts to transcend your past. I praise and exalt you for demonstrating that freedom is never permanent but must be reclaimed and reinvented on a regular basis. I cheer you on as you avoid every temptation to repeat yourself, demean yourself, and chain yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I’m feeling a bit helpless as I watch you messing with that bad but good stuff that is so wrong but right for you. I am rendered equally inert as I observe you playing with the strong but weak stuff that’s interesting but probably irrelevant. I fidget and sigh as I monitor the classy but trashy influence that’s angling for your attention; and the supposedly fast-moving process that’s creeping along so slowly; and the seemingly obvious truth that would offer you a much better lesson if only you would see it for the chewy riddle that it is. What should I do about my predicament? Is there any way I can give you a boost? Maybe the best assistance I can offer is to describe to you what I see. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Psychologist Paul Ekman has compiled an extensive atlas of how emotions are revealed in our faces. “Smiles are probably the most underrated facial expressions,” he has written, “much more complicated than most people realize. There are dozens of smiles, each differing in appearance and in the message expressed.” I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because your assignment in the coming weeks — should you choose to accept it — is to explore and experiment with your entire repertoire of smiles. I’m

The current astroCertified Tantra Educator, logical omens suggest that the next two months will be Professional Massage an excellent time to commit yourself to a Great Work that you will give your best to for the rest of your long life! Therapist, & Life Coach ASTROLOGY SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): What’s the biggest lie in my life? There are several candidates. Here’s one: I pretend I’m nonchalant about one of my greatest failures; I act as if I’m not distressed by the fact that the music I’ve created has never received the listenership it should it have. How about you, Sagittarius? What’s the biggest lie in your life? What’s most false or dishonest or evasive about you? Whatever it is, the immediate future will be a favorable time to transform your relationship with it. You now have extraordinary power to tell yourself liberating truths. Three weeks from now, you could be a more authentic version of yourself than you’ve ever been. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now and then you go through phases when you don’t know what you need until you stumble upon it. At times like those, you’re wise not to harbor fixed ideas about what you need or where to hunt for what you need. Metaphorically speaking, a holy grail might show up in a thrift store. An eccentric stranger may provide you with an accidental epiphany at a bus stop or a convenience store. Who knows? A crucial clue may even jump out at you from a spam email or a reality TV show. I suspect that the next two weeks might be one of those odd grace periods for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Reverse psychology” is when you convince people to do what you wish they would do by shrewdly suggesting that they do the opposite of what you wish they would do. “Reverse censorship” is when you write or speak the very words or ideas that you have been forbidden to express. “Reverse cynicism” is acting like it’s chic to express glee, positivity, and enthusiasm. “Reverse egotism” is bragging about what you don’t have and can’t do. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to carry out all these reversals, as well as any other constructive or amusing reversals you can dream up. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Poet Emily Dickinson once revealed to a friend that there was only one Commandment she ever obeyed: “Consider the Lilies.” Japanese novelist Natsume Soseki told his Englishspeaking students that the proper Japanese translation for “I love you” is Tsuki ga tottemo aoi naa, which literally means “The moon is so blue tonight.” In accordance with current astrological omens, Pisces, I’m advising you to be inspired by Dickinson and Soseki. More than any other time in 2018, your duty in the coming weeks is to be lyrical, sensual, aesthetic, imaginative, and festively non-literal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Lucky vibes are coalescing in your vicinity. Scouts and recruiters are hovering. Helpers, fairy godmothers, and future playmates are growing restless waiting for you to ask them for favors. Therefore, I hereby authorize you to be imperious, regal, and overflowing with self-respect. I encourage you to seize exactly what you want, not what you’re “supposed” to want. Or else be considerate, appropriate, modest, and full of harmonious caution. CUT! CUT! Delete that “be considerate” sentence. The Libra part of me tricked me into saying it. And this is one time when people of the Libra persuasion are allowed to be free from the compulsion to balance and moderate. You have a mandate to be the show, not watch the show.
