posted: 05/27/2016 5:23 a.m. Discuss

Dom Flemons, who as a member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops won the very last Grammy available for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2011, took his good-timey post-modern minstrel show to the Oxford American's South on Main on Thursday night, and a swell time was had by all.

I'm sorry to report we officially live in an age where true inspiration and riotous imagination have been savagely commoditized and beaten down into unadulterated claptrap: A risible litany of obvious formulas, prescribed points of dramatic arc, a manufactured sprinkling of cheap, emotional flashpoints, surrounded on all sides by layer after layer of protective netting, so that absolutely nothing has even a momentary hint of danger.

Most fanboys and fangirls agree that the Disney-owned Marvel organization has managed to get more of its superheroes onto the big screen with dignity than the Time-Warner owned DC. For those who crave more equality, we can take comfort that director Bryan Singer has now done for the X-Men what Kryptonite does for DC's Superman.

Whit Stillman is one of those easily typecast directors, the sort of auteur who can be described as a WASPish analog to Woody Allen, albeit one without the knack for churning out a film a year. In fact, he has only made five films over the past 26 years, probably because the sort of dialogue-heavy comedies of manners in which he specializes aren't viewed as terribly lucrative business ventures.

Director Stillman does Jane Austen

"I started listening to Jamaican music, and I got completely obsessed with it as kind of a career-ending obsession because I've been trying to make an early '60s Jamaican church ... film which is a such a nonstarter commercially in the film world. So, that didn't happen, but at the same time I was also working on this Jane Austen thing," says writer-director Whit Stillman.

DEAR HELOISE: Whenever I go "junking," I like to think creatively when it comes to common household items. Recently, I found an old, rusted baby swing at a garage sale that was dirt-cheap. It was calling out to me, saying: "Take me home. Make me useful again!"

Happy birthday. In one regard you've always felt you were missing out. This year you remedy the situation. You make up for lost time in June. Try and meet as many people as you can over the next seven weeks. One winning personality match is all it will take to start a successful project or business. August travel is favored.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: We just paid our taxes, and somewhat to my surprise our records showed we didn't give hardly anything to charity or our church last year. I don't have a question, but this was kind of a wake-up call to us, and hopefully we won't be so forgetful this year.
