Meet 2nd term Vermont Republican State Senator Norm McAllister.
This week he was arrested and plead not guilty to "three felony counts of sexual assault and three misdemeanors of prohibited acts, the charges arising from what police describe as a sex-for-rent scheme involving several unwilling tenants."
In graphic allegations that shocked McAllister's colleagues, the governor, and the courthouse, prosecutors outlined a tale of several years where McAllister sexually assaulted two tenants/employees and attempted to assault a third for rent on a trailer on his diary farm.

It's that time of year again where I give readers of the Shank my hot tips for what to see at the Maryland Film Festival. Due to a glitch of Google drive I lost the original version of my list (which I had spent 4 hours writing) and so have to put it back together with not much time. So please forgive any typos and punctuation errors made in my sleep-deprived haze.
It should go without saying that I love all of the films at MDFF and that these are just a few things that, if I were an attendee, I would prioritize in my viewing schedule.
As we all know the lead up to this year's MDFF has been very different than any other year. Given the events of the last few weeks here, it seems only proper to begin my list by highlighting some of the more politically progressive and thought-provoking works that will screen within MDFF 2015.
DO THE RIGHT THING directed by Spike Lee A film that urgently needs revisiting in the current moment in Baltimore. Spike Lee's seminal account of exploding racial tensions during a steamy Brooklyn summer in the 1980s should not be missed.
BEATS OF THE ANTONOV directed by Hajooj Kuka An incredible and awe-inspiring tale of the resilience of the human spirit under the most extreme, war-ravaged conditions imaginable. The Sudanese of the Blue Nile and Nuba Mountains regions of Sudan, continue the struggle to maintain their culture and livelihood during the oppressive and perilous ongoing civil war. BEATS won the People's Choice Documentary Award at TIFF 2014.
WELCOME TO LEITH directed by Michael B. Nichols and Christopher K. Walker A thrilling and blood-boiling account of white-supremacist Craig Cobb's attempts to take over a small town in North Dakota, to begin his dark dream of a whites-only homestead. Riveting from its first frame to its last, a reminder of the dangers of fundamentalist belief and extreme right-wing politics.
VENICE directed by Kiki Alvarez One of the first crowd-funded films to come out of Cuba, VENICE is a heartfelt look at female friendship over the course of one long night in the streets and clubs of Havana. Marked by strong female characters and written by the actors themselves in collaboration with the director, VENICE shows three female friends searching for freedom from their problems and the strictures of a male dominated world. One of my favorite films from TIFF 2014.
BEST OF ENEMIES directed by Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon An expertly crafted document of the extremely contentious prime-time debates between liberal author, playwright and political commentator Gore Vidal and his arch-conservative nemesis William F. Buckley, Jr., during the 1968 conventions. Both fun to watch and educational, a must see for anyone who saw it happen or has no idea who these people are!
GOD BLESS THE CHILD directed by Robert Machoian and Rodrigo Ojeda-Beck A stirring portrait of a group of siblings faced with an irresponsible and often absent parent. The film's documentary-like approach to observing children as they interact with each other and the outside world without the benefit of adult supervision, pays off in a richly layered and emotionally complex film. A true work of art.
UNEXPECTED directed by Kris Swanberg A smart and insightful look at the racial and economic disparity between two expectant young mothers. A young, white teacher and one of her African-American students bond over the fact that they have both become pregnant around the same time, but they face very different realities. Deftly directed by MDFF alum Kris Swanberg.
THE REAPER directed by Zvonimir Juric An unflinching and masterful narrative centered around an ex-con who is unable to escape his past in a small Croatian village. Recommended to fans of Haneke, Bruno Dumont and the like.
CROCODILE GENNADIY directed by Steve Hoover A charismatic Ukrainian pastor wages a one man war against rampant childhood drug addiction on the streets of Mariupol. Executive Produced by Terence Malick this is a tough, uncompromising and breathtaking piece of documentary cinema.
If you have more adventurous tastes and you're looking for something a little more cinematically afield, I would highly recommend the following:
FUNNY BUNNY directed by Alison Bagnall A wonderfully quirky buddy comedy about an eccentric young millionaire shut-in named Titty; an internet celebrity named Ginger that Titty desires; and Gene, a door-to-door crusader against childhood obesity who is unexpectedly pulled into their orbit.
A WONDERFUL CLOUD directed by Eugene Kotlyarenko If you can imagine Woody Allen and John Waters collaborating on a romantic comedy together then you start to be in the ballpark of this hilariously bonkers film. From the unique mind that brought you MDFF 2010's 0s & 1s, A WONDERFUL CLOUD is an MDFF must see!
WHY DO THE WTF SHORTS RUN AMOK? directed by various It's all here! A pee shy cop, unwelcome attempts at a roommate threesome, Ronald Reagan, a misbehaved turkey, a murderous crow, botched home invasion, internet voyeurism, horny conquistadors, lovers spurned, and your morning announcements!
Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing you at the festival!
by Eric Allen Hatch, Maryland Film Festival Director of Programming
Each year as Maryland Film Festival approaches, Benn is kind enough to offer me some space to take off my hat as MFF director of programming and share some “insider picks” that I think friends and Shank readers will particularly dig. Thanks, Benn! I’m really proud of this year’s lineup, and proud to be welcoming over 100 awesome films and filmmakers to our beautiful city May 6-10.
In no order other than that ordained by our alphabet:
The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution—Stanley Nelson directed my favorite documentary of the 2000s (which, of course, is Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple). With that film and titles like Freedom Riders, he’s shown an unparalleled ability to bring history to gripping life—not to mention deliver definitive takes on his chosen subjects. What else to say, except the obvious: this seems like a particularly crucial film to see right now.
Breaking a Monster—Last year, this short film went viral, offering an affectionate portrait of Unlocking the Truth, a jaw-droppingly precocious pre-teen African-American heavy metal band. Partially as a result of the short, the band was signed to Sony and picked up by a 70-year-old manager known for co-creating Welcome Back, Kotter and grooming the Jonas Brothers. The band has now re-teamed with the director of the short film, Luke Meyer (who co-directed LARP-ing doc Darkon, a big hit at MFF 2006), for this endlessly entertaining feature-length look at what happened next.
Christmas, Again-- Noel (Kentucker Audley) sells Christmas trees off a lot in New York, living a quiet and solitary life in the camper that anchors the site. As Christmas nears, a mysterious woman lands in Noel’s life, and tries to find a way into the closed-off, emotionally blocked world he’s constructed. If you think independent filmmakers do drama and romance better than Hollywood, a)you’re right; b)see this film.
Entertainment—It’s the Neil Hamburger movie—sort of! Gregg Turkington, best-known for the aforementioned persona, a caricature of a sad, old-school comedian armed with a comb-over and offensive punchlines, stars here as “The Comedian”—a sad, old-school comedian armed with a comb-over and offensive punchlines. Endlessly roaming a desolate American landscape, performing two-bit gigs in Z-grade venues, The Comedian offers provocateur Rick Alverson (who recently unleashed the pitch-black The Comedy with Tim Heidecker) another opportunity to probe the extreme dark corners and breaking points of humor.
For the Plasma—Here we have just another shot-on-Super 16mm feature about two young women in Maine who observe trees and a field with digital cameras and supply that “data” for use in making global stock-market predictions. This is one of the strangest, scrappiest, and most challenging films in the lineup, and a lot of people won’t know what the hell to make of it—but viewers on its wavelength may just have their minds blown. I’m recommending this one to people who love the novels of Kobo Abe and Jacques Rivette’s Celine and Julie Go Boating, so if this is (or isn’t!) you, know thyself!
Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party—We’re world-premiering this expertly observed drama, which takes us deep into the complex social sphere of the son of a mega-church preacher; he and many of his friends are harboring sexual secrets dad might not approve of. I love the way this film paints a picture of a contemporary American Christian community, and the little glances and disapproving words that regulate conformity within it—or at least try to.
In the Basement—Ulrich Seidl is a dark fellow. And if you follow John Waters’ annual picks for Maryland Film Festival, he’s also the only director JW has selected twice (with Dog Days in 2004 and Paradise: Faith in 2013). This isn’t Waters’ pick this year (that would be William Friedkin’s Killer Joe), but it’s of the same masterful quality of Sedil’s earlier work. Here’s what he has for us this time around: an insane documentary about secret lives in the basements of seemingly mild-mannered Austrians: amateur taxidermists, shooting ranges, BDSM chambers, collections of Nazi memorabilia, and more.
Jauja—A very beautiful, stark, and strange Argentine period piece set in Patagonia, built around Viggo Mortensen searching for his disappeared daughter. If you like films about existential crises, here ya go! Mortensen not only delivers a performance that’s Klaus Kinski-esque in its angst and physical arduousness, he also composed and performed evocative original music for the film with experimental musician Buckethead (!). In other words: Viggo’s all in! Director Lisandro Alonso’s earlier film Liverpool was a standout in MFF 2010, and this new work is a next-level development in his work.
Sailing a Sinking Sea—Director Olivia Wyatt has crafted a gorgeous immersive ethnographic doc about the Moken people of Burma/Thailand, who maintain their traditional sea-worshipping lifestyle and spend most of the year largely disengaged from contemporary technology. Wyatt conveys a staggering amount of sensory detail, filling our eyes and ears with amazing sights and music. If you’re down with Sublime Frequencies, this is a home run for you. Executive-produced by Will Oldham, BTW.
Stinking Heaven—This one blew me away, an intentionally abrasive dark comedy about the tumultuous dissolution of a 1990s New Jersey commune of ex-addicts who make their living selling "health tea." Shot on period video cameras, it feels sort of like a Mike Leigh movie w/ a few drops of proudly analog grunge added to the stew. If you wished Computer Chess had been about addiction, death, and imploding relationships: boom!
Tab Hunter Confidential—A sweet, fascinating, and well-told documentary portrait of the Hollywood heartthrob, who lived a secret life as a gay man in the unforgiving, tabloid-crazed era of the 1950s—and then reinvented himself as a cult-film star alongside Divine in Polyester. Another classy, top-notch work from the director of Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story and I Am Divine.
Tired Moonlight--Gorgeously shot vignettes built around a mix of local non-professionals and ringers (including Girls’ Alex Karpovsky) coalesce into a rich and poetic portrait of a pit-stop town in Montana situated amidst stunning natural beauty. Britni West’s film is made with first-hand intimacy and love, and it’s the very best kind of experimental film: the kind that truly results in something new.
Uncle Kent 2—For people who loved, hated, or are utterly unaware of Uncle Kent "1," this is a really deranged mind-fucker, a raucous, micro-budgeted This Is the End or Being John Malkovich. Director Todd Rohal is the reigning king of psychotronic filmmaking, known to MFF fans for previous warped features like The Guatemalan Handshake and The Catechism Cataclysm (whose star, Steve Little of Eastbound and Down, also appears here). If you miss MicroCineFest, run don’t walk!
Welcome to Leith—Like edge-of-your seat documentaries? This is one of the most gripping I’ve seen in years. It concerns a notorious white supremacist who targets a North Dakota town of roughly 25 residents, buying up land for himself and his buddies to try to stage a takeover of the city council. The kind, decent people who live there are not down. A tense, troubling, and exciting viewing experience all at once.
Western—In the neighboring towns of Eagle Pass, Texas and Piedras Negras, Mexico, a rugged cattleman and a populist mayor navigate changing times as the specters of cartel violence and xenophobia threaten harmonious cultural and economic exchanges between the U.S. and Mexico. With an uncanny, visceral ability to conjure muggy days and thunderous nights, and boasting exciting narrative, characters, and visuals all at once, this documentary from the directors of 45365 and Tchoupitoulas feels like a masterpiece to me.
What else? This is just the tip of the iceburg. We’ve got dozens more features for you to explore (including new work from Andrew Bujalski, Hannah Fidell, Bobcat Goldthwait, Alex Winter, and both Joe and Kris Swanberg) and a baker’s dozen shorts programs (including the latest film by Baltimore’s own Matt Porterfield), as well as some special events: Abdu Ali presenting Do the Right Thing; Dina Kelberman and Alan Resnick presenting Showgirls; John Waters presenting Killer Joe; and Alloy Orchestra presenting their original live score to The Son of The Sheik.
Have questions? Want recommendations geared even more specifically to your taste? I’d be happy to field them on Twitter at @ericallenhatch. And for more general info, find us at @mdfilmfestival. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you at the festival.
In other Baltimore news, today, the Department of Public Works announced the termination of an employee for watching 39 hours of pornography on his work computer during the 82 hours he was investigated.
It is estimated that this DPW supervisor cost the city taxpayers $28,400 in hour he was supposed to be working but was instead watching a porno DVD on his computer.
In freecycling, there’s no greater faux pas than being a no show. Rip a fart in church? Drop a deuce in a punchbowl? Tweet an off-color joke? Mere party fouls when compared to leaving a freecycler with a box of clock making parts or a camera battery on their porch after promising to pick it up and not showing. What’s the freecycler to do but raise the specter of just throwing the bowling balls in the trash or threaten to just keep the magic hostess meat and cheese slicer for themselves?

They don't make that annoying click like the new aluminum ones do. Pick-up is near TV Hill, not far from Hampden, Cross Keys, Sinai Hosp. Sorry, cast not included (unless you're a no-show).
Re-Offer: Freezer in Cockeysville This is not working at present. Most likely a very simple issue. If you are handy with this type of stuff, you may be able to fix it up and re-sell it. :o) It is about 13-14 yrs old, color is white, and it is very clean. If you say you want it, PLEASE have the decency to show up, or call to say you changed your mind. LOL My father stayed home ALL day yesterday for a very rude no-show.

(I have had three no shows in the past 2 weeks so I needed to vent! Not the ppl who emailed or called and couldn't make it.)

This slicer will handle a whole stick of cheese, a chicken or turkey breast, you name it. If someone does not show up to pick it up this time I'm keeping it for myself!
My top two favorite holidays are Thanksgiving and April Fools' Day, in that order.
I mean, what's not to love about Thanksgiving? You eat a lot of great food, drink heartily, and then spend the rest of the evening bickering with relatives who have terrible politics. Good times!
And April Fools' Day is right in my wheelhouse. I inherited an affinity for pranking, joshin', kiddin' or just plain foolin' from my old man, and this day celebrates those sorts of antics. And frankly, almost every year, I put a decent amount of planning into the holiday.
But there are people who try very hard, every year, to ruin my second favorite holiday. We all need to finally recognize there is a War on April Fools' Day, and the people who try to ruin the holiday I call the "April No-Foolers".
The "April No-Foolers" can be broken down into two groups.
Group 1(the Not-Players) bemoan the existence of the holiday. They stay away from media, they stay offline, and they minimize human contact so as they won't get fooled again. Talk about your spoilsports!
These people intentionally try to miss out on the feeling you get - the moment of realization that you've been had: That delicious mix of, "ugh, I shoulda known better/I can't believe I fell for it/wait, it's April 1" that is so much fun. It's a holiday that celebrates belief, gullibility, and naivety in an era of jaded cynicism.
Not-Players are akin to the anti-irony crowd - you know the folks who like to proclaim and prematurely celebrate the end of irony every few years because they personally don't understand irony and feel they are victimized by it. They overreact. They make it all about them. And they try to poo-poo something relatively harmless that many others enjoy.
Group 2 (the Exposers) are the ones who, when they don't fall for it, have to ruin the joke for everyone else by pointing out they haven't fallen for it by pointing out it was a joke (instead of just waiting for April 2 and saying, "Oh yeah, I didn't fall for that").
These are the people who have to comment in posts, "Oh, April Fools!" Or "What day is this?" They proudly say/post/tweet/type things like "Oh, you didn't fool me for a second."
Well, congratulations, Sherlock. You are a genius. And yes, it's all about you. So let's all take a moment from this prank you just ruined for others to commend you on your powers of deduction.
The Exposers can be far more frustrating than the Not-Players because not are they just opting out, through their own need for validation, they are trying to ruin the joke for others who may fall for the prank.
Each year, I try to pull off a decent April Fools' joke. Admittedly, some are better than others. And I frequently have people who help me, for example, almost every year, my friend Dug has been a collaborator.
But it's especially disappointing to see several hours of planning and work ruined in a matter of seconds by the April No-Foolers. But they are also the reason why I continue doing it. It's not to fool the ones who are fooled easily, it's to get the No-Foolers or the Exposers.
Why? Because they are waging war on April Fools Day, and they are trying to spoil my second favorite holiday.
But they're easy to spot. And from now on, I'm going to call them on it (if I'm not too busy deleting their posts that ruin my pranks).
This year was a great year for new music despite the grumblings of many people about the death of music or whatever. This is just part of what I was listening to this year so it doesn’t include reissues, anthologies, etc. (because let’s face it, that Brazilian Nuggets Vol. 3 on Groovie Records was a-mazing and I still haven’t gotten Back From The Grave Vols 9 and 10). This is all NEW stuff.
TOP 5 ALBUMS
The Neumans: S/T (Screaming Apple) I can’t say enough about this record. 5 Angeleno kids creating a massive mix of the Seeds and every dead end garage band you’ve never heard. This record actually gains momentum over the course of the album and by Side 2 it becomes unstoppable and never lets up. There’s fuzz, there’s organ and they don’t stray from the script at all. Refreshingly narrow-minded. The only drawback is that it doesn’t come with a digital download so I can’t play it in my car. I might be tempted to put my battery-operated turntable on the passenger seat though. It’s that good. Fave song: “Dark Are The Shadows"
The Above: Waterbury Street (Teen Sound) Fantastic mod/garage release from this Brooklyn quartet. A meticulously-constructed sound that approximates the best of early Who and Kinks but with singer David Horowitz’s uncanny, almost Colin Blunstone-esque vocals. Throw in some killer Beach Boys harmonies and you have one of the most listenable records of the year. I couldn’t play this enough. And they pull it off live too. Fave track: “The Prisoner"
The Ar-Kaics: The Ar-Kaics (Windian) Yes, I know them. Yes, I put out a single by them but damn, this is a good record! They push the line between obscure caveman garage primitivism, girl group song structures and a VU obsession—at least if every song was based on Lou Reed’s “Do The Ostrich”. And even though they tout an obscuro-60s fixation (faux 45 labels on the back of the sleeve, perfect lo-fi atmospherics) the songs never feel like a pastiche. There’s a certain weirdness that happens at some point in every tune that takes it some place unexpected. Admittedly this LP took a few listens to get into (esp following their excellent demo from 2012). But I’m firmly in the Love Camp now. Fave track: “No No No"
The Budos Band: Burnt Offering (Daptone) Where did this come from? I have previous records by this band and they’ve all been in this badass 70s funk instrumental mode but this one came out of nowhere. I’ve heard it described as “Stoner Funk” which I guess is a good lazy shortcut. A slightly less lazy description would be: Imagine the Bar-Kays filtered through fuzz pedals, choruses of horns and organ and scoring the climax to every 70s Kung Fu movie and you get the idea. Impeccable Daptone “shitty” production only makes this record soar. Fave track: “Aphasia"
Cozy: Button by Button (HoZac) Incredibly fun record from this Minneapolis quartet. While some bands like Guida borrow liberally from 70s glam acts like Slade and The Hammersmith Gorillas, Cozy’s take on glam is more like a Bay City Roller fetish. Good time rock and roll whose focus is wearing denim (a lot of it, vests, bellbottoms) and scoring in the back seat of a Plymouth Duster. Fave track: “Pure Lady”
THE REST (in no particular order):
Mattson 2: Agar (Um Yeah Arts) The Concussions: Break Up With (Double Crown) Blair Alise & The Bombshells: For My Darlin’ Nick Waterhouse: Holly (Innovative Leisure) The Ugly Beats: Brand New Day (Get Hip) The GTVs: Sh’Bang (Teen Sound) The Mad Doctors: Snake Oil Superscience (King Pizza) Gino & The Goons: Shake It (Black Gladiator/Slovenly) Graham Day & The Forefathers: Good Things (Own Up) The Soundcarriers: Entropicalia (Ghost Box) The Satelliters: More of The Satelliters (Dionysus) Steve Adamyk Band: Dial Tone (Dirtnap) Sloan: Commonwealth (Yep Rock) Ty Segall: Manipulator (Drag City) Army Navy: The Wilderness Inside (Roll Call) St. Paul & The Broken Bones: Half The City (Single Lock) The Safes: Record Heat (O'Brothers)
SINGLES/EPs Some really excellent records of all stripes represented here from straight garage to indie punk to power pop. It’s kinda hard to narrow down but Blackwolf Beach wins for best song title “The Ballad of El Dude Bro” and Gorilla (“Maryanne”) for most amazing approximation of '70s power pop by clearly non-English speakers.
Michael Lynch “She’s On Her Way” (Market Square) The Idle Gossip “On My Way” (Fandango) Muck & The Mires “Double White Line” (King Yum) Graham Day & The Forefathers “Love Me Lies” (State) The Ar-Kaics “Why Should I?” (Windian) Paul Messis “Nightmares” (13 O’Clock) Gorilla “Maryanne” (Three Dimensional) Black Wolf Beach: S/T EP Myracle Brah: The Peach EP Terry & Louie “(I’m) Lookin’ For a Heart” (Tuff Break) Monster Museum: Safety Dances Great Dismal Swamis “Phantom Tollbooth” (RZO) Jake Starr & The Delicious Fullness “Yummy!” (Fandango) Missing Monuments “Too Many People” EP (Various) Sick Thoughts "Fat Kid with a Ten Inch" EP (Black Gladiator)
