THE MOVE: Plan accordingly - February 2019

Hey, y'all! What's the Move?

IMG 7563 Web

WORD: Trap Music Museum, a hybrid art gallery and interactive exhibit, life in the ATL.

Enjoy an eclectic mix of funk, granola, and cultural events this month with The Move.

I’ll be on the move to Venkman’s for a TWO-NIGHT RUN of Sade. OK, maybe it’s the ATL Collective covering Sade’s Love Deluxe, but it’s my first time seeing Sade covered live. If we’ve met even once, you already know about my love for Sade, and constant contemplation to tattoo or not to tattoo her face on my body. And it just so happens I’ve never seen a bad ATL Collective performance either, so this feels like an obvious win. (Psst… ATL Collective is performing No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom March 23 at Aisle 5.) 

Sneak some culture at the Trap Music Museum and play the escape room, where you have 30 minutes to “Escape the Trap” before the Feds bust open the doors. “Making a Murder” IRL, dancing under the moon, and a five-night Valentine’s Day pop-up. Go out and celebrate the Super Bowl being over. 




FEB. 7, THURSDAY:

Trap Music Museum and Escape Room — In the midst of what I expect to be my busiest week of 2019, a colleague throws me an email saying they can no longer attend the media invite-only opening of the Trap Music Museum — would I be interested? I clear my schedule.

The walls and counters of this museum scream at the visitors. Step directly into Gucci Mane’s trap kitchen, then turn around and meet the Snowman, aka Jeezy. The museum is also a great space to discover emerging artists — and their work is for sale. As pieces move out, new art comes in, giving you another reason to keep this on your radar. Not recommended for younger eyes.

Escape the Trap: — You are locked into a room for 30 minutes with 2-10 people and given clues to escape the trap house before the Feds arrive. Not a space for the overly conservative, which is probably why it’s now my #1 destination in ATL. 630 Travis St. N.W. trapmusicmuseum.us. https://defpen.com/trap-music-museum/

FEB. 9, SATURDAY:

A Night of Alchemy: Palette presents a film called glo. — Whether you caught creative group Palette’s social performance live or not, you will certainly not want to miss the screening of the film, a story of empathetic bodies at work, or the evening, a cyclical meditation of film, food, and peacekeeping referencing the philosophical tradition of alchemy. The venue is the old Rhodes Theatre, which opened in 1938 with Clark Gable’s Test Pilot as the first show. Admittedly, I’d never heard of the Rhodes Theatre before this event, and, it seems most of Atlanta has forgotten it. Not the people at glo, however, who are intent on reviving dormant spaces in our city. Get out and rediscover this historic Atlanta theater between Spring and West Peachtree streets. From Clark Gable to glo, this is a venue with which I can vibe. 62 S. Rhodes Center N.W., https://www.thepalettegroup.com/information https://mailchi.mp/gloatl/a-film-called-glo-a-night-of-alchemy

Land Trust Winter Dance — When I discovered the Lake Claire Community Land Trust, I realized the Georgia Burners (Burners = Burning Man attendees) were much closer than expected. Their Facebook page describes the Trust as “a green oasis in the middle of Atlanta for celebrating nature and cultivating community,” and it also happens to offer some unique events. Tip to the wise: Never miss a solstice, and try and catch a drum circle every now and again. 470 Candler Park Dr. N.E 

Paranormal Investigation — This event should appeal to believers of the paranormal and skeptics alike. Most recently, I attended “The Poe Experience” at the Wren’s Nest and decided it would be a regular venue of mine. Creepy — and it appears not much has changed here since its 19th-century roots. Make it an anti-Valentine’s date night in the West End. Don’t sleep on Tassili’s or Healthful Essence for a bite. 1050 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd., S.W., 

FEB. 10, SUNDAY:

Super Museum Sunday — Enjoy free admission at a museum — get outta town! Literally, or check out local spots. Super Museum Sunday is a free golden ticket to most any museum in Georgia. From downtown Savannah to Midtown Atlanta, and from Statesboro to Darien, more than 60 statewide cultural institutions participate in this annual event. Cultural overload.

Inside “Making A Murderer” Live — As an amateur detective and true crime addict, I will likely be in the front row. Although, this particular story takes my anxiety woes to the next level. If you haven’t seen Netflix’s “Making a Murderer,” you’ll want to binge before this event with Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin. The venue is the renovated Buckhead Theatre. That nasty carpet is a goner, and there’s a welcome new sound system by Music Matters Productions. Worth the trip to Buckhead even if you don’t like going much above Midtown. 3110 Roswell Road N.E.

FEB. 10 –15, SUNDAY– FRIDAY:

Swoon Bar: A Valentine’s Bar Featuring Work by Elise Williams — Swoon Bar takes over MOTHER for a five-day pop-up Valentine’s bar, featuring “Luminescence,” an installation by artist Elise Williams with five nights of events, including an artist’s market, Lonely Hearts Karaoke, and art parties. 

MOTHER Bar + Kitchen is a concept birthed by a joint effort between a local indie art gallery and a popular Brooklyn NY dance club. The kitchen is open late (get the tacos), the vibe is always good, and the events keep poppin’ with creativity. 447 Edgewood Ave. S.E.

FEB. 14, thursday:

021419 ContrastATL S2E2 (free all night) One of my favorite monthly installments happens to fall on V-day this month. Soak up experimental sounds solo or with your soulmate. This party stays on “The Move” for many reasons, one being because it is free. Having to pay to dance feels like being robbed while expressing a natural human instinct. Want to keep the party going? Add to the cash flow by buying a round at the bar. Or tip the DJ when you enjoy yourself.  #ContrastATL is a recurring party the second Thursday of every month at the Edgewood Speakeasy. Put on by UUeird, it aims to give fresh insight into the best DJs in Atlanta. 327 Edgewood Ave. S.E.

If I Told You — In the aftermath of the Squishiepuss firestorm, The Beacon Atlanta welcomes “If I Told You… ,” a group art exhibition with accompanying public programs focusing on female artists, and those who identify as female, to discuss issues of sexual harassment and violence in our community. 1039 Grant St. S.E.

FEB. 14–15, THURSDAY and FRIDAY:

ATL Collective relives Sade’s Love Deluxe at Venkman’s Her love is Qween! If I’d sell a kidney for anything, it’d be to see Sade. She’s known to be a recluse and hasn’t toured since 2011; however, when Oprah called in 2018 needing a song for her Disney film A Wrinkle in Time, next thing you know, Sade’s got a new single. She and the band are officially back in the studio working on the successor to their most recent album, Soldier of Love.

In the meantime, I will not miss either of these two performances of Love Deluxe by ATL Collective at Venkman’s. 740 Ralph McGill Blvd. N.E.

FEB. 14–17, THURSDAY–SUNDAY:

Atlanta Balloon Glow  — Get all warm and cozy with friends of the human and furry variety for a V-day celebration under the glow of hot air balloons. No need to drive out to open pastures to hop on, as the balloons will hover directly over Piedmont Park and offer tethered rides. VIP options available with food trucks near the tether spots. Piedmont Park. Organizers warn people not to drive but to take MARTA, Uber, Lyft, or walk. 

FEB. 16, SATURDAY:

Afrobeat, Funk, Samba, and Soul with Mausiki Scales & the Common Ground Collective with Khari Cabral Simmons — The claim: “A magnificent fusion of Afrobeat, soul, hip-hop, and funk-jazz, fused into the best party you’ll ever have.” Recently honored with the Georgia Governor’s Award for the Arts and Humanities, Mausiki Scales has been a force in the Atlanta indie music scene for almost two decades as a sought-after keyboardist and founder/musical director of the critically acclaimed ensemble, the Common Ground Collective.

This dance party happens at Venkman’s, a place I revisited recently and have decided I’m very into. Previously, I’d only been to shows with seated situations. While watching Nikki & the Phantom Callers there in January, the middle of the room was wide open, with a disco ball over the dance floor and some serious toe-tappin’. 740 Ralph McGill Blvd. NE.

Didn’t you hear? COVID-19 vanished! Everything is back to normal and Georgia is “open for biz!” Screech. Reality check: COVID-19 didn’t disappear. Below is what’s coming up in the virtual world of disco, art, and underground in ATL.

A pandemic won’t stop national Pride. Atlanta’s most sensational queers prep for festivals, performances, and artist markets on the World Wide Web, mostly social media. Check out Atlanta-based influencer Rigel Gemini’s “Quarantine Playlist” collab with Atlanta Pride on Spotify! No doubt featuring Rigel’s new single “I Can’t.” The vid to go with “I Can’t” is adorbs and stars Ru Paul’s Drag Race legend Alyssa Edwards and Creative Loafing 2020 Lust Lister, Brande Elise!

More on music. The Move is listening to a lot of the Pure Moods ’90s tracks, Atlanta favs Lunar Vacation, Material Girls, Lady and Clementine’s Fantastic Party, and Nikki and the Phantom Callers.

Take a stroll back to the turn of the century and watch the Pure Moods commercial. Millennials will remember like it was yesterday. Prep the pitcher bc it’s still ok to drink alone at home without judgment. Oh, and stay sanitary distant, Bithkitz, bc she’s tired of wasting all the vodka on our hands.

WEDNESDAYS AND SUNDAYS P Groove’s Brock Butler cover sets

Unable to tour, yet thriving at home. Every Wednesday and Sunday, Perpetual Groove’s guitarist and lead vocalist Brock Butler covers his fav songs digitally on Busking Down the House. As of mid-May, Butler was up to 190 songs, with zero repeats.

“While I certainly miss the rock shows proper, there is always opportunity to push and be creative with new mediums. Taking time to learn some new covers I’ve always wanted to play and try my hand at pgroove songs that don’t necessarily scream to exist in the solo acoustic realm.”  — Brock Butler

The Busking Down the House Facebook page was born March 13, 2020, to support the music community with performances and virtual tip jars. A whopping 32K members have joined. ”Our goals are to continue to support our artists and crews while continuing to bring you music.” — Busking Down the House.

Full Moon Yoga with Prince & Sade!

My friend and Sacred Thread Yoga owner, Annelise Leal, brings 90-minute gatherings honoring the moons, right to your living room! In June, Prince is the theme under the Strawberry Moon. In July, y’all!, it’ll be a Sade evening honoring the Thunder Moon. Don’t you just love being all privately spiritual and shit right from your home mat — or couch?

P.S. Congrats are in order for our yogi host. Annelise birthed her first child, Khya, at the beginning of the COVID-19 shut downs, at their home in East Atlanta Village! All are well and snuggly looking. I vote to let Khya stay up to honor the moons with us. xxoo. Zoom, $30

Drink & Doodle, June 10 & June 24

ABV Gallery is killing it with the 2020 version of their popular Drink and Doodle event series. Typically, the kewl kidz gather monthly at ABV in Studioplex on the Eastside BeltLine to hang out and watch artists doodle. Anyone in the room can bid on the doodles once completed. Naturally, this gathering has moved online.

A perk of the shutdowns? Drink and Doodle is now twice a month with one night being international. The quarantine company I keep likes to throw the show up on a projector. Add speakers, bc music is fresh. Great if you’re over watching old concerts or subpar Netflix stand-ups. The art is typically affordable, so just bid already!

Grateful Dating — for serious, single Deadheads only!

Are you into composting, brushing with Tom’s, and dancing in the street? Did your 2020 show dosage include 420 Fest, Jerry Day, Phish at Piedmont Park, and perhaps a little Panic? Are you single and looking for someone to turn on your love light? Facebook recommends Grateful Dating — a group for Deadhead singles to swap feelings, and probs granola recipes. There are two passwords before you can cross the bridge into a chat group full of some og woke white folk, AKA hippies. The first, a lyrical trivia question:

“What color was the sky when the sun was blue?” Seriously, this is a Deadhead group. This is a must-answer question.

Hint: The answer lives on the 1974 Grateful Dead album From the Mars Hotel.

Now, The Move isn’t looking for love bc she’s already cookin’ with one sexy noodler, but should you qualify for Grateful Dating, here is what internet hippies will not tolerate: trolling, catfishing, politics, selling, and absolutely zero Jerry vs. Trey, Phish vs. Dead, Jerry vs. John, or cover band baiting. https://www.facebook.com/groups/353011275140619

Dance Party @ Nonsense, Saturday June 13

Keep checking Nonsense ATL for Zoom dance parties. Danceable versions of all your pop stars! Like, literally all of them. Seriously, Karen. Other than dancing, DIY lewks are always encouraged.

“Grab some toilet paper rolls, bath towels, cardboard boxes, macaroni, whatever and show us what you’ve got.” — Nonsense ATL

Where else can you carb and cardio at the same time? Macaroni tube top, here she comes! https://www.nonsenseatl.com/

Didn’t you hear? COVID-19 vanished! Everything is back to normal and Georgia is “open for biz!” Screech. Reality check: COVID-19 didn’t disappear. Below is what’s coming up in the virtual world of disco, art, and underground in ATL.

A pandemic won’t stop national Pride. Atlanta’s most sensational queers prep for festivals, performances, and artist markets on the World Wide Web, mostly social media. Check out Atlanta-based influencer Rigel Gemini’s “Quarantine Playlist” collab with Atlanta Pride on Spotify! No doubt featuring Rigel’s new single “I Can’t.” The vid to go with “I Can’t” is adorbs and stars Ru Paul’s Drag Race legend Alyssa Edwards and Creative Loafing 2020 Lust Lister, Brande Elise!

More on music. The Move is listening to a lot of the Pure Moods ’90s tracks, Atlanta favs Lunar Vacation, Material Girls, Lady and Clementine’s Fantastic Party, and Nikki and the Phantom Callers.

Take a stroll back to the turn of the century and watch the Pure Moods commercial. Millennials will remember like it was yesterday. Prep the pitcher bc it’s still ok to drink alone at home without judgment. Oh, and stay sanitary distant, Bithkitz, bc she’s tired of wasting all the vodka on our hands.

WEDNESDAYS AND SUNDAYS P Groove’s Brock Butler cover sets

Unable to tour, yet thriving at home. Every Wednesday and Sunday, Perpetual Groove’s guitarist and lead vocalist Brock Butler covers his fav songs digitally on Busking Down the House. As of mid-May, Butler was up to 190 songs, with zero repeats.

“While I certainly miss the rock shows proper, there is always opportunity to push and be creative with new mediums. Taking time to learn some new covers I’ve always wanted to play and try my hand at pgroove songs that don’t necessarily scream to exist in the solo acoustic realm.”  — Brock Butler

The Busking Down the House Facebook page was born March 13, 2020, to support the music community with performances and virtual tip jars. A whopping 32K members have joined. ”Our goals are to continue to support our artists and crews while continuing to bring you music.” — Busking Down the House.

Full Moon Yoga with Prince & Sade!

My friend and Sacred Thread Yoga owner, Annelise Leal, brings 90-minute gatherings honoring the moons, right to your living room! In June, Prince is the theme under the Strawberry Moon. In July, y’all!, it’ll be a Sade evening honoring the Thunder Moon. Don’t you just love being all privately spiritual and shit right from your home mat — or couch?

P.S. Congrats are in order for our yogi host. Annelise birthed her first child, Khya, at the beginning of the COVID-19 shut downs, at their home in East Atlanta Village! All are well and snuggly looking. I vote to let Khya stay up to honor the moons with us. xxoo. Zoom, $30

Drink & Doodle, June 10 & June 24

ABV Gallery is killing it with the 2020 version of their popular Drink and Doodle event series. Typically, the kewl kidz gather monthly at ABV in Studioplex on the Eastside BeltLine to hang out and watch artists doodle. Anyone in the room can bid on the doodles once completed. Naturally, this gathering has moved online.

A perk of the shutdowns? Drink and Doodle is now twice a month with one night being international. The quarantine company I keep likes to throw the show up on a projector. Add speakers, bc music is fresh. Great if you’re over watching old concerts or subpar Netflix stand-ups. The art is typically affordable, so just bid already!

Grateful Dating — for serious, single Deadheads only!

Are you into composting, brushing with Tom’s, and dancing in the street? Did your 2020 show dosage include 420 Fest, Jerry Day, Phish at Piedmont Park, and perhaps a little Panic? Are you single and looking for someone to turn on your love light? Facebook recommends Grateful Dating — a group for Deadhead singles to swap feelings, and probs granola recipes. There are two passwords before you can cross the bridge into a chat group full of some og woke white folk, AKA hippies. The first, a lyrical trivia question:

“What color was the sky when the sun was blue?” Seriously, this is a Deadhead group. This is a must-answer question.

Hint: The answer lives on the 1974 Grateful Dead album From the Mars Hotel.

Now, The Move isn’t looking for love bc she’s already cookin’ with one sexy noodler, but should you qualify for Grateful Dating, here is what internet hippies will not tolerate: trolling, catfishing, politics, selling, and absolutely zero Jerry vs. Trey, Phish vs. Dead, Jerry vs. John, or cover band baiting. https://www.facebook.com/groups/353011275140619

Dance Party @ Nonsense, Saturday June 13

Keep checking Nonsense ATL for Zoom dance parties. Danceable versions of all your pop stars! Like, literally all of them. Seriously, Karen. Other than dancing, DIY lewks are always encouraged.

“Grab some toilet paper rolls, bath towels, cardboard boxes, macaroni, whatever and show us what you’ve got.” — Nonsense ATL

Where else can you carb and cardio at the same time? Macaroni tube top, here she comes! https://www.nonsenseatl.com/

The Buffy Hour: Once More, With Distancing, Saturday June 6

”She irons her jeans. She’s evil.” — Buffy

How is she hunty?? She’ll be “five by five” once she gets to THE BUFFY HOUR on Wussy Mag’s twitch.tv. Quarantine hasn’t stopped Wussy Mag from giving the queer community stage time. Here’s the tea ... queer comedy, music, drag, and spoken word all about Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

”We will be dissecting all 7 seasons of this cult favorite, including the highs and lows, heartbreaks and big bads.” — Wussy Mag

Hosted by Powell Mansfield and Brigitte Bidet with special guests Tom Lenk and Jack Plotnick from Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Buffering the Vampire Slayer Podcast and Slayerfest 98 Podcast; and the Scooby Gang, including Dax Exclamationpoint, Hayley Ellman, Ian Aber, Joleen Lunzer, Julian Modugno, Kia Comedy, Olive Lynch, Maureen SanDiego, and Stella-Pearl Fontaine. Showtime is 9 p.m. EST at twitch.tv/wussymag

“Just cause you’re at home, doesn’t mean you can’t turn a lewk. We encourage your best ’90s fashions, pajama vampwear, Willow sweaters, and Magic Box loungewear. Break out the band candy, host a virtual watch party, and tune in!”

Suggested donation: $10 to PayPal — info at wussymag.com — to be split among performers.

Southern Fried Queer Pride 2020 Online Pop-Up Fest, June 26-27

The Move is tickled to announce Southern Fried Queer Pride 2020 is on(line)! Night one comes spicy with “HAWT SAUCE,” an online dance party. Day 2 will be workshops, an artist market, and a SWEET TEA queer variety show!

Last year, we learned basic cooking skills, DIY pad making, and thrifted our tootsies off. Stay tuned to SFQP’s website for more details on 2020’s virtual offerings.

Y’all can still have a balanced diet of disco and yoga, it will just be virtual yoga and a password protected Zoom disco. Warning of side effects: Bloated bank account from an entire year of concert cash yet to be burned. Anxiety over slow internet connections. Consume at your own risk.

Other than the obvious issues and catching my dog’s separation anxiety, there are pros to being on international shut-down. The club bathrooms have improved, assuming you cleaned your toilet recently. Brian Kemp memes went viral. No more group birthday dinners!

The underground isn’t always organized. Throw in a pandemic, and we’re talking a pop-up virtual rager that could slide in your feed at any hour. In the good ole days, The Move intended to get your calendars amped for what’s to come. But that was way back in Q1 of this year. Now that most of us would agree our lives can change at the drop of cough droplets, writing a futuristic events column...well maybe not. Instead, like a true cowgirl, she’s doing things in reverse. Here’s what she’s seen, virtually attended, watched, and created during COVID-19. If you read about an event you like, look ‘em up. They will probably have more parties. Plus, ways you can help good ppl doing some good sh*t.

A shoutout to the do-gooders, and how to join them:

The first call I make when I want to know how to be of service in the communities that need it most is to Activist and Community Leader Liliana Bakhtiari. Think your volunteer hours are impressive? Bakhtiari’s life commitment to public service is GOALS.

During the pandemic, Bakhtiari immediately activated help for Atlanta’s senior community asking for donations for Branan Towers, a high-rise for senior citizens in East Atlanta Village. You can drop off Branan Towers donations — food, cleaning supplies, art activities, puzzles, books, used/refurbished electronics, gift cards, and letters —  at the Argosy take-out table, Wednesday through Sunday, between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Bakhtiari is also working as the Homeless Emergency Response Coordinator at Partners for HOME. Partners for HOME is a compassionate community innovating a robust approach to homelessness in Atlanta. They are currently working with local hotels to house the homeless who are high-risk for COVID-19. www.partnersforhome.org, @lilianaforAtlanta

Meal Bridge is an Atlanta-based mission to feed frontline healthcare workers, while simultaneously generating biz for local restaurants. But local restaurants aren’t hogging all the profits: “For every single meal you order from Osteria, Doc Chey’s, or Dragon Bowl for our brave healthcare professionals via The Meal Bridge, we will donate nine more meals to the Atlanta Community Food Bank that will allow them to feed hungry children, hardworking families, or struggling seniors.” Barely more than a month into the pandemic, 1,084 meals have been delivered to hospitals, thus raising enough to feed 9,756 food-insecure neighbors. www.themealbridge.com

The Atlanta Guys Dinner Group (#AGDG) is a group of guys who get together once a month to break bread, socialize, and give back to the Atlanta community. They created a pantry drive and are putting bags together for restaurant workers and others from the culinary industry who are currently without. They have also raised funds for Atlanta Family Meal and are collecting nonperishable items if you’re able to donate.

Funemployed? Become a Pet Listener:
Have a pet? I recently made an appointment with local animal communicator, Lauren Kinney. Animal communication uses telepathy, something Kinney says all humans are born with but lose once the verbal communication takes over, to chat with your furry roommates.

“I listen and learn about an animal’s joys and fears and get a better understanding of behavioral or medical issues.” — Kinney

Kinney had a convo with Poncey, my seven-year-old bulldog and codependent bestie, via phone. Kinney described Poncey as “The Dude” from one of my favorite Coen brothers’ movies, The Big Lebowski, meaning he’s extremely “chill.” This, along with everything else she noted about my only roommate, was spot on! Even if she just got lucky, the call lifted spirits in our tiny home. Kinney is currently talking to pets for FREE to gain accreditation hours. Yes, that’s a thing, apparently, if you are funemployed! www.petlistener.com

TWITCH.tv:
Are you even twitching yet, Karen? Twitch.tv, a social media platform originally intended for gamers, is now being used to stream events during coronavirus.

We asked Wussy Mag creator Jon Dean, “Why not just stick with Facebook or Zoom?” Dean responded, “It’s just the best quality for mixing live stream in from multiple sources with pre-recorded content.” Wussy Mag, with Southern Fried Queer Pride, streamed their event “Big Ass Telethon to End Metronormativity,” Saturday, April 25 on Twitch.tv. The telethon raised money for rural, queer artists and performers and featured my fav local drag performers Brigitte Bidet and Ella/saurus/REX. Nashville band Thelma & the Sleaze, international pop star Lance Bass, and Netflix comedians Fortune Feimster and Whitney Cummings all made appearances that likely wouldn’t have been possible pre shelter in place.

Look for more Atlanta-based events popping up on Twitch.tv, including regular entertainment from Mammal Gallery and a social distance happy hour hosted by Mary’s every Friday.

You can still shop local:
A cure for the Amazon guilt is as overdue as rent during COVID-19. Of course, I didn’t know how to kick the addiction, so I called upon my favorite local she-can-make-anything engineer, Streetcat.media, for the 411 on how to stop playing with rainbow capitalism and actually buy local.

"Itching for your monthly Atlanta DIY fix?! We sure as heck are! Local internet-based artist + DIY community organizer, Streetcat.media, saves the day with the scoop on all things online in the Atlanta DIY scene in their latest blog, “Pandemania: an Anti-Rainbow Capitalism Manifesto.”

“In this manifesto, you will find lots of reasons and resources on how and why you should be investing in your local creative economy right now, especially in these uncertain national and state-wide economic times. Whether through building your own DIY skill set with video tutorials or buying art from a local artist’s website, now is an extremely rare and fruitful time to participate in and support your local DIY community online.” — Maggie Kane, owner, Streetcat.media. 

Shibori, Shibari — Let’s tie the whole thing off:
Getting crafty on The Move! Shibori is the ancient Japanese art of folding, tying, then dying fabric to create a tie-dye like pattern. I tried this technique during quarantine, only to learn RIT fabric dye for synthetics doesn’t actually dye polyester as promised. Friends who stuck with more absorbable fabs, like cotton, have dyed beautiful things. Try shibori with you, yourself, and you while staying home.

Shibari is the Japanese form of bondage art, aka kinbaku. So maybe I haven’t actually practiced tying up another human yet, but I am getting pretty stellar at macramé, which is just as knotty. I’ve learned so many twists and ties and have acquired enough rope to make the kink community jelly. Macramé is a solo project. If you have a quarantine partner, try for shibari.

WEED Rx:
I’d like to re-thank Kwanza Hall and all the Atlanta City Council members who unanimously voted to decriminalize under an ounce of grass in 2017. And with cops not having testing kits to analyze the difference between CBD/THC, there’s a good chance you can drop the paranoia in 2020. Lawd knows we need Mary Jane more than ever right now.


*Remember, marijuana containing more than .03 percent of THC is still illegal in Georgia. In the city of Atlanta, however, you will at worst get a $75 ticket for having under an ounce of THC on you. Enjoy confidently and responsibly.

CLUB QUARANTINE and other ways to dance during a pandemic:
The Move is always to dance. I even have a tattoo dedicated to the verb. Perhaps we can’t risk sharing sweat droplets with strangers right now, but social-distance dance parties are popping up everywhere.

It’s taken no time for the dance community to take the raves online during an international crisis. Artists from Toronto take their all-inclusive, queer dance party, Club Quarantine, online for the masses nightly using Zoom codes.

Party in your bathtub. Lose track of time. Don’t be self-conscious, wake your subconscious, without having to leave your house. Go ahead and get all dressed up, honey, bc you’ve got a website to get to!

LOCAL DANCE PARTIES via the internet:
Who misses foam, glitter, and dance raves more than me? Maybe DJ Kimber. Although we can’t share glitter, we can enjoy a full, live set from Kimber weekly! Check out Kimber’s virtual dance parties for Nonsense ATL via Zoom. Her last set was eight hours long! nonsenseatl.com

And before we can all go back to day raves at the Chosewood Ballroom, continue checking Ecstatic Dance Atlanta’s Facebook page as they stream Ecstatic Dance chapters from around the world. Get movin’ — that’s an order. 

P.S. Stop whining about getting your roots done and just shave your head. I did! —CL—"

*Remember, marijuana containing more than .03 percent of THC is still illegal in Georgia. In the city of Atlanta, however, you will at worst get a $75 ticket for having under an ounce of THC on you. Enjoy confidently and responsibly.

What’s the move? 31008  2020-05-01T04:03:00+00:00 THE MOVE: Plan Accordingly - May 2020 jim.harris@creativeloafing.com Jim Harris Ema Carr Ema Carr 2020-05-01T04:03:00+00:00  Welcome to The Move, a column intended to help you beat the fight against basic, and, in 2020, likely without having to leave your house. Y’all can still have a balanced diet of disco and yoga, it will just be virtual yoga and a password protected Zoom disco. Warning of side effects: Bloated bank account from an entire year of concert cash yet to be burned. Anxiety over slow internet connections. Consume at your own risk.

Other than the obvious issues and catching my dog’s separation anxiety, there are pros to being on international shut-down. The club bathrooms have improved, assuming you cleaned your toilet recently. Brian Kemp memes went viral. No more group birthday dinners!

The underground isn’t always organized. Throw in a pandemic, and we’re talking a pop-up virtual rager that could slide in your feed at any hour. In the good ole days, The Move intended to get your calendars amped for what’s to come. But that was way back in Q1 of this year. Now that most of us would agree our lives can change at the drop of cough droplets, writing a futuristic events column...well maybe not. Instead, like a true cowgirl, she’s doing things in reverse. Here’s what she’s seen, virtually attended, watched, and created during COVID-19. If you read about an event you like, look ‘em up. They will probably have more parties. Plus, ways you can help good ppl doing some good sh*t.

A shoutout to the do-gooders, and how to join them:

The first call I make when I want to know how to be of service in the communities that need it most is to Activist and Community Leader Liliana Bakhtiari. Think your volunteer hours are impressive? Bakhtiari’s life commitment to public service is GOALS.

During the pandemic, Bakhtiari immediately activated help for Atlanta’s senior community asking for donations for Branan Towers, a high-rise for senior citizens in East Atlanta Village. You can drop off Branan Towers donations — food, cleaning supplies, art activities, puzzles, books, used/refurbished electronics, gift cards, and letters —  at the Argosy take-out table, Wednesday through Sunday, between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Bakhtiari is also working as the Homeless Emergency Response Coordinator at Partners for HOME. Partners for HOME is a compassionate community innovating a robust approach to homelessness in Atlanta. They are currently working with local hotels to house the homeless who are high-risk for COVID-19. www.partnersforhome.org, @lilianaforAtlanta

Meal Bridge is an Atlanta-based mission to feed frontline healthcare workers, while simultaneously generating biz for local restaurants. But local restaurants aren’t hogging all the profits: “For every single meal you order from Osteria, Doc Chey’s, or Dragon Bowl for our brave healthcare professionals via The Meal Bridge, we will donate nine more meals to the Atlanta Community Food Bank that will allow them to feed hungry children, hardworking families, or struggling seniors.” Barely more than a month into the pandemic, 1,084 meals have been delivered to hospitals, thus raising enough to feed 9,756 food-insecure neighbors. www.themealbridge.com

The Atlanta Guys Dinner Group (#AGDG) is a group of guys who get together once a month to break bread, socialize, and give back to the Atlanta community. They created a pantry drive and are putting bags together for restaurant workers and others from the culinary industry who are currently without. They have also raised funds for Atlanta Family Meal and are collecting nonperishable items if you’re able to donate.

Funemployed? Become a Pet Listener:
Have a pet? I recently made an appointment with local animal communicator, Lauren Kinney. Animal communication uses telepathy, something Kinney says all humans are born with but lose once the verbal communication takes over, to chat with your furry roommates.

“I listen and learn about an animal’s joys and fears and get a better understanding of behavioral or medical issues.” — Kinney

Kinney had a convo with Poncey, my seven-year-old bulldog and codependent bestie, via phone. Kinney described Poncey as “The Dude” from one of my favorite Coen brothers’ movies, The Big Lebowski, meaning he’s extremely “chill.” This, along with everything else she noted about my only roommate, was spot on! Even if she just got lucky, the call lifted spirits in our tiny home. Kinney is currently talking to pets for FREE to gain accreditation hours. Yes, that’s a thing, apparently, if you are funemployed! www.petlistener.com

TWITCH.tv:
Are you even twitching yet, Karen? Twitch.tv, a social media platform originally intended for gamers, is now being used to stream events during coronavirus.

We asked Wussy Mag creator Jon Dean, “Why not just stick with Facebook or Zoom?” Dean responded, “It’s just the best quality for mixing live stream in from multiple sources with pre-recorded content.” Wussy Mag, with Southern Fried Queer Pride, streamed their event “Big Ass Telethon to End Metronormativity,” Saturday, April 25 on Twitch.tv. The telethon raised money for rural, queer artists and performers and featured my fav local drag performers Brigitte Bidet and Ella/saurus/REX. Nashville band Thelma & the Sleaze, international pop star Lance Bass, and Netflix comedians Fortune Feimster and Whitney Cummings all made appearances that likely wouldn’t have been possible pre shelter in place.

Look for more Atlanta-based events popping up on Twitch.tv, including regular entertainment from Mammal Gallery and a social distance happy hour hosted by Mary’s every Friday.

You can still shop local:
A cure for the Amazon guilt is as overdue as rent during COVID-19. Of course, I didn’t know how to kick the addiction, so I called upon my favorite local she-can-make-anything engineer, Streetcat.media, for the 411 on how to stop playing with rainbow capitalism and actually buy local.

"Itching for your monthly Atlanta DIY fix?! We sure as heck are! Local internet-based artist + DIY community organizer, Streetcat.media, saves the day with the scoop on all things online in the Atlanta DIY scene in their latest blog, “Pandemania: an Anti-Rainbow Capitalism Manifesto.”

“In this manifesto, you will find lots of reasons and resources on how and why you should be investing in your local creative economy right now, especially in these uncertain national and state-wide economic times. Whether through building your own DIY skill set with video tutorials or buying art from a local artist’s website, now is an extremely rare and fruitful time to participate in and support your local DIY community online.” — Maggie Kane, owner, Streetcat.media. 

Shibori, Shibari — Let’s tie the whole thing off:
Getting crafty on The Move! Shibori is the ancient Japanese art of folding, tying, then dying fabric to create a tie-dye like pattern. I tried this technique during quarantine, only to learn RIT fabric dye for synthetics doesn’t actually dye polyester as promised. Friends who stuck with more absorbable fabs, like cotton, have dyed beautiful things. Try shibori with you, yourself, and you while staying home.

Shibari is the Japanese form of bondage art, aka kinbaku. So maybe I haven’t actually practiced tying up another human yet, but I am getting pretty stellar at macramé, which is just as knotty. I’ve learned so many twists and ties and have acquired enough rope to make the kink community jelly. Macramé is a solo project. If you have a quarantine partner, try for shibari.

WEED Rx:
I’d like to re-thank Kwanza Hall and all the Atlanta City Council members who unanimously voted to decriminalize under an ounce of grass in 2017. And with cops not having testing kits to analyze the difference between CBD/THC, there’s a good chance you can drop the paranoia in 2020. Lawd knows we need Mary Jane more than ever right now.


*Remember, marijuana containing more than .03 percent of THC is still illegal in Georgia. In the city of Atlanta, however, you will at worst get a $75 ticket for having under an ounce of THC on you. Enjoy confidently and responsibly.

CLUB QUARANTINE and other ways to dance during a pandemic:
The Move is always to dance. I even have a tattoo dedicated to the verb. Perhaps we can’t risk sharing sweat droplets with strangers right now, but social-distance dance parties are popping up everywhere.

It’s taken no time for the dance community to take the raves online during an international crisis. Artists from Toronto take their all-inclusive, queer dance party, Club Quarantine, online for the masses nightly using Zoom codes.

Party in your bathtub. Lose track of time. Don’t be self-conscious, wake your subconscious, without having to leave your house. Go ahead and get all dressed up, honey, bc you’ve got a website to get to!

LOCAL DANCE PARTIES via the internet:
Who misses foam, glitter, and dance raves more than me? Maybe DJ Kimber. Although we can’t share glitter, we can enjoy a full, live set from Kimber weekly! Check out Kimber’s virtual dance parties for Nonsense ATL via Zoom. Her last set was eight hours long! nonsenseatl.com

But have no fear, bc we don’t f*ck with boredom on The Move: Things to Do at Least 6 Feet Away from Other Humans. Some home- and self-improvement are just what my WebMd doc prescribed for a voluntary-ish quarantine. Read on to become a better, more gifted you during COVID-19!*

The internet has never felt more useful than to keep up with a mega-virus, absorb YouTube content, and telecommunicate with those I cannot currently touch. Like any modern millennial, my cures for anxiety include  memes, DIY home- and self-improvement, carbonated water, and marijuana. And although my dream of retiring to open a cuddle camp has been postponed — truthfully she wasn’t even close — we still have Amazon.com to bring activity tools.

Life threw The Move lemons, so we’re going to scour Pinterest for hours looking for the best damn lemonade recipe, and maybe, possibly consider making it, ya know, btw memes. I hope you feel inspired after reading how I spend my personal wi-fi bill. Post COVID-19, it’s quite likely The Move may include an event of interest to the new you! Stay sanitary, neighbors!

DIY: Sex Pots

If you keep up with The Move, you know she is plant-obsessed! Here’s a makeover for those basic planters your last neighbor left behind. Easy, customizable sex pot created by you! Copy and paste are not just keys on your computer. Using Creative Loafing print ads, cut, place, and paste on pottery or furniture of choice, then Modge Podge over them for instant art, aka decoupage. I splattered and sprayed some paint and glitter for accents. To keep with the “sex pot” theme, use the adult ads in the back of this newspaper.** Or try six-time Golden Globe actor Laura Dern’s face for a “Dern fern” piece, pictured.

DIY: Perfect Another Language

Travel plans canceled? Naw. You just got more time to practice your language skills. Personally, I’ll be re-learning Russian to make up for my lack of studying in St. Petersburg many white nights ago.

Between YouTube, smartphone apps, and streaming channels GALORE, you could come out of COVID-19 speaking sign language! My Roku streaming stick, just like your Chrome Fire stick or Apple TV, offers entire channels dedicated to a single language. How about ordering that lengua taco in the bull’s native tongue by the time you scarf down your next Mexican meal in public?

Stay home and Make a Bolo Tie


I made a bolo tie, once I realized a good bolo tie is tough to find outside of the Southwest and can be limited in design. Fun Fact! A bolo tie is the official state neckwear of New Mexico. (My findings for Georgia’s official neckwear, inconclusive.)

A good bolo tie is rugged yet refined, and pretty easy to make. Don’t take my advice, take YouTube’s! Google “How to make a bolo tie” for a swarm of quick and easy ways to create the base of your bolo, but let your designs sprawl outside the box if it feels right. Add a favorite patch or some pom-poms vs a turquoise gem.

Just think, nearly 100 years ago, a Native-American with a silver-clasped bandana gave a cowboy silversmith the idea for adding his leather hat string, then calling it a bolo tie. A practical thought, turned fashion. Your incubation time could hatch great things for the runway, my friends.

How to Keep Music Alive During a Crisis


Keep streaming. Vinyl, CD, and cassette friends, come up to the airwaves and listen local, or subscribe to a music streaming service that pays the artists appropriately. Or buy the music outright. Yes, that’s still a thing! Don’t want to listen to music 24/7? Support your favorite small artists by playing their songs on repeat, even if you mute it. Plays pay bills.

Don’t Wait for a Sign, Make One

Are you a political activist or slacktivist? Take a listen to Hidden Brain wherever you listen to podcasts. Specifically, the episode titled, “Passion Isn’t Enough,” with political scientist Eitan Hersh. Hersh talks about the study of “political hobbyism” and how the US currently treats politics more like sports entertainment.

If you find yourself in the political slacktivist category, like most, it’s a great time to make a sign supporting your candidates for all the upcoming elections. Don’t wait until May or November. Take that sign out to the street, keeping over six feet away from passing humans, and hold it up high for your neighbors and traffic to see. I promise it’s way more invigorating than a one-click Facebook share.

This downtime is a great chance to call your representatives and political candidates vying for their position, even if it’s just to introduce yourself and your priorities. Mark the new Georgia Primary Election voting day for MAY 19, 2020. If you need help getting to the polls in May, try https://carpoolvote.com/.

Friends in High Places

Xtra! Xtra! Weed all about it. Or listen wherever you get your podcasts. The latest episode interviews Corey Lowe, a former police officer who left the job to fight for her daughter’s right to medical marijuana in Georgia. Without this medication, her daughter, Victoria, suffers up to 100 seizures a day. With it, only one.

Listen to Lowe’s family story and how she’s played a dominant part in making change for Georgia’s cannabis laws. The fight is far from over. Tune in at CLATL.com/FiHP

Film and Tube Time

Here’s what I’m watching during an international crisis. If I ain’t learning something or solving a murder, I’m likely not streaming it. Naturally, I watch Outbreak the day we hit a pandemic state in the U.S., to learn what not to do. Kevin Spacey gives off a particularly great creep vibe, per usual.

Upbeat and super motivational Hulu original programming “Making It” is just good for the whole fam jam fun. Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler, of Parks and Rec, bring notes of the warm and fuzzies as hosts of this craft challenge for the masters. In only a few hours, these makers create a mailbox that shreds bills, a dog house with edible wallpaper, and a photobooth that can fly — all with more puns than my little heart can love.

A&E’s docuseries “The Many Faces of Jane” follows 28-year-old Jane Hart in her daily life as a mother of two young children and to her thrice-weekly intensive therapy sessions for dissociative personality disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder). Hart’s personalities are each derived from a different age in her life when trauma and abuse occurred. I know you have a million questions, and I am not a doctor, yet, so just go watch it. I streamed on Hulu.

Film of 2019 IMO, was GREENER GRASS. Comedy meets horror in timeless suburbia where everyone wears braces on straight teeth, and matching tertiary wardrobes, and golf carts glide nicely along with music from composer Samuel Nobles. Dawn Luebbe and Jocelyn DeBoer star and direct in a story of jealousy and murder in this irrational masterpiece with strong David Lynch vibes. Either you’ll get it, or you won’t. Either way, you’ll feel awkward.

Other TV listings include Kamp Kenan for reptile curiosities; Yarn TV, a crochet channel; and, not a series, but yes a channel dedicated to making your own soap (DIY Soapmaking). All streaming on Roku, and probably elsewhere.

*Totally unqualified advice for those bored in Atlanta during COVID-19.

And although my dream of retiring to open a cuddle camp has been postponed — truthfully she wasn’t even close — we still have Amazon.com to bring activity tools.

Life threw ''The Move'' lemons, so we’re going to scour Pinterest for hours looking for the best damn lemonade recipe, and maybe, possibly consider making it, ya know, btw memes. I hope you feel inspired after reading how I spend my personal wi-fi bill. Post COVID-19, it’s quite likely ''The Move'' may include an event of interest to the new you! Stay sanitary, neighbors!

__DIY: Sex Pots__

If you keep up with ''The Move'', you know she is plant-obsessed! Here’s a makeover for those basic planters your last neighbor left behind. Easy, customizable sex pot created by you! Copy and paste are not just keys on your computer. Using ''Creative Loafing'' print ads, cut, place, and paste on pottery or furniture of choice, then Modge Podge over them for instant art, aka decoupage. I splattered and sprayed some paint and glitter for accents. To keep with the “sex pot” theme, use the adult ads in the back of this newspaper.** Or try six-time Golden Globe actor Laura Dern’s face for a “Dern fern” piece, pictured.

__DIY: Perfect Another Language__

Travel plans canceled? Naw. You just got more time to practice your language skills. Personally, I’ll be re-learning Russian to make up for my lack of studying in St. Petersburg many white nights ago.

Between YouTube, smartphone apps, and streaming channels GALORE, you could come out of COVID-19 speaking sign language! My Roku streaming stick, just like your Chrome Fire stick or Apple TV, offers entire channels dedicated to a single language. How about ordering that lengua taco in the bull’s native tongue by the time you scarf down your next Mexican meal in public?

__Stay home and Make a Bolo Tie__


I made a bolo tie, once I realized a good bolo tie is tough to find outside of the Southwest and can be limited in design. Fun Fact! A bolo tie is the official state neckwear of New Mexico. (My findings for Georgia’s official neckwear, inconclusive.)

A good bolo tie is rugged yet refined, and pretty easy to make. Don’t take my advice, take YouTube’s! Google “How to make a bolo tie” for a swarm of quick and easy ways to create the base of your bolo, but let your designs sprawl outside the box if it feels right. Add a favorite patch or some pom-poms vs a turquoise gem.

Just think, nearly 100 years ago, a Native-American with a silver-clasped bandana gave a cowboy silversmith the idea for adding his leather hat string, then calling it a bolo tie. A practical thought, turned fashion. Your incubation time could hatch great things for the runway, my friends.

__How to Keep Music Alive During a Crisis__

{img fileId="30454" stylebox="float: right; margin-left:25px;" max="600" desc="desc"}
Keep streaming. Vinyl, CD, and cassette friends, come up to the airwaves and listen local, or subscribe to a music streaming service that pays the artists appropriately. Or buy the music outright. Yes, that’s still a thing! Don’t want to listen to music 24/7? Support your favorite small artists by playing their songs on repeat, even if you mute it. Plays pay bills.

__Don’t Wait for a Sign, Make One__

Are you a political activist or slacktivist? Take a listen to ''Hidden Brain'' wherever you listen to podcasts. Specifically, the episode titled, “Passion Isn’t Enough,” with political scientist Eitan Hersh. Hersh talks about the study of “political hobbyism” and how the US currently treats politics more like sports entertainment.

If you find yourself in the political slacktivist category, like most, it’s a great time to make a sign supporting your candidates for all the upcoming elections. Don’t wait until May or November. Take that sign out to the street, keeping over six feet away from passing humans, and hold it up high for your neighbors and traffic to see. I promise it’s way more invigorating than a one-click Facebook share.

This downtime is a great chance to call your representatives and political candidates vying for their position, even if it’s just to introduce yourself and your priorities. Mark the new Georgia Primary Election voting day for MAY 19, 2020. If you need help getting to the polls in May, try https://carpoolvote.com/.

Xtra! Xtra! Weed all about it. Or listen wherever you get your podcasts. [https://creativeloafing.com/content-470344-friends-in-high-places-corey-lowe|The latest episode] interviews Corey Lowe, a former police officer who left the job to fight for her daughter’s right to medical marijuana in Georgia. Without this medication, her daughter, Victoria, suffers up to 100 seizures a day. With it, only one.

Listen to Lowe’s family story and how she’s played a dominant part in making change for Georgia’s cannabis laws. The fight is far from over. Tune in at CLATL.com/FiHP

__Film and Tube Time__

Here’s what I’m watching during an international crisis. If I ain’t learning something or solving a murder, I’m likely not streaming it. Naturally, I watch ''Outbreak'' the day we hit a pandemic state in the U.S., to learn what not to do. Kevin Spacey gives off a particularly great creep vibe, per usual.

Upbeat and super motivational Hulu original programming “Making It” is just good for the whole fam jam fun. Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler, of Parks and Rec, bring notes of the warm and fuzzies as hosts of this craft challenge for the masters. In only a few hours, these makers create a mailbox that shreds bills, a dog house with edible wallpaper, and a photobooth that can fly — all with more puns than my little heart can love.

A&E’s docuseries “The Many Faces of Jane” follows 28-year-old Jane Hart in her daily life as a mother of two young children and to her thrice-weekly intensive therapy sessions for dissociative personality disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder). Hart’s personalities are each derived from a different age in her life when trauma and abuse occurred. I know you have a million questions, and I am not a doctor, yet, so just go watch it. I streamed on Hulu.

Film of 2019 IMO, was __GREENER GRASS__. Comedy meets horror in timeless suburbia where everyone wears braces on straight teeth, and matching tertiary wardrobes, and golf carts glide nicely along with music from composer Samuel Nobles. Dawn Luebbe and Jocelyn DeBoer star and direct in a story of jealousy and murder in this irrational masterpiece with strong David Lynch vibes. Either you’ll get it, or you won’t. Either way, you’ll feel awkward.

Other TV listings include ''Kamp Kenan'' for reptile curiosities; ''Yarn TV'', a crochet channel; and, not a series, but yes a channel dedicated to making your own soap (''DIY Soapmaking''). All streaming on Roku, and probably elsewhere.
