?A>C4BC8=6C746A>E4 Gabe Melineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bohemian (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passing the Torch,â&#x20AC;? June 10) was nice to see. Thanks for bringing attention to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;elite retreat.â&#x20AC;? I am surprised that still, to this day, many Sonoma County residents do not know about the Bohemian Grove and its yearly inhabitants. Many people are shocked to learn that contemporary members include such people as George H. W. Bush, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell and other leaders in banking, military, corporate and government structure. Many of the problems that we as a society face are normally profited from by this same structure in a number of ways. In this sense, we all have a right and responsibility to be at the Grove voicing our complaints. Corporate and banking influence in our body

politic is overwhelming. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;War of Terrorâ&#x20AC;? is created and sustained via the events of 9-11. The militarization of police and control of the media has continued in haste since that event. Torture has become a public discussion since 2001. Many of the constitutional erosions seen under Bush because of 9-11 have not been restored by Obama. As ICE raids and Homeland Security continue to spread, their creation from 9-11 has not been checked. Not to mention all the social justice issues that were buried by the events of 9-11. The official story of 9-11 has been debunked. Steel-framed high rise buildings do not turn to dust from fire. Planes do not fly in our airspace offcourse, without transponders, for over an hour and a half unchecked, unless they are allowed to. They want us to believe it was a huge intelligence failure; in fact, it was a huge intelligence success.

Gabeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article said that there was some worry that 9-11 truth would obscure the corporatecontrol reasons for protesting at the Grove. I hope now that any worries are quelled. With a new independent investigation, the truth of Sept. 11, 2001, might just be the final piece to the puzzle of understanding how deep we are corporately controlled. Then maybe, just maybe, we can get some peace and justice!

5>=C8=0BF44C5>=C8=0 I read your article on Mark Todd (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Cheese Dude,â&#x20AC;? May 27), and it made me think of Dr. Peter J. Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adamoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement about why China has not eaten cheese for centuries. Here is the quote from Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adamoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first book, Eat Right 4 Your Type: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are of Asian descent, you may initially have a problem adapting to dairy foodsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not because your system is resistant to them, but because your culture typically has been resistant. Dairy products were first introduced into Asian societies with the invasion of the Mongolian hordes. To the Asian mind, dairy products were the food of the barbarian, and thus not fit to eat. The stigma remains to this day.â&#x20AC;? Maybe Mr. Todd can now help squash the resistance and make China become a nation of cheese lovers!

Proposition 13 passed in 1979 and took 30 years to bankrupt the state of California. At the present time, there are insufficient funds to run the schools and prisons, maintain roads and provide a minimum of healthcare for SSI recipients. Filing for unemployment from pink slip to first check takes four to six weeks. The failure in our social welfare system is a consequence of Prop. 13. This inhumanity results in a decline of our public schools, an increase in crime and potholes galore, while license and plate fees increase. People, we are all bearing witness to the richest state in America falling into a banana republic.

Natural burial meets GPS technology at new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cemeteries By Bruce Robinson

hawk glides on the updraft sweeping in from San Pablo Bay, soaring over a verdant slope with sizable stones scattered amidst the lush native grasses of spring, a pastoral landscape that masks a curious mix of technology and tradition, new applications of old values. For invisibly dotting the placid hillside lie the remains of some 150 pioneers in the emerging movement known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;natural burial.â&#x20AC;? By that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we generally mean no embalming, burial in a biodegradable container, which would be a shroud or a wooden box or a cardboard fiber box or a woven wicker box, ideally going into a piece of ground that is maintained in a natural state,â&#x20AC;? explains Cynthia Beal, cofounder of the Eugene, Ore-based Natural Burial Company.

Drawing on models from Great Britain, where the natural burial movement has been gaining ground for nearly 20 years, Beal and her clients have been slowly pushing one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most staid and conventionbound industries to reconsider its longestablished practices. Her customers, Beal says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;want a choice; they want the natural option. And the cemeteries and funeral directors have had some difficulty changing their model, because it means getting new products and thinking about new ways to do things.â&#x20AC;? Tyler Cassidy was the first to do so in California. In 2004, he bought the 133-year old Daphne Fernwood Cemetery, 32 acres of steep-shouldered hills and open meadows that were already the final resting place for generations of some of the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founding families, where he introduced a new, natural approach. Although the

cemetery maintains a modest â&#x20AC;&#x153;traditionalâ&#x20AC;? section, the majority of the property, called Forever Fernwood, is intended for natural interments, says cemetery manager Kathy Curry. Some plots are identified with natural rocks ranging in size from backpack to major luggage, often with names and dates carved into them. Small trees denote a few gravesites, and one lies beneath a small driftwood assemblage. But many are simply left unmarked. Inside the cemetery offices, the land is mapped out in 12-foot hexagons, each able to accommodate two bodies. The sites already in use are shown, of course, but they are also clearly identified out on the hillsides through an unlikely application of GPS technology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bury a radio frequency ID tag with them thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programmed with their name and their dates, so that we can always find them again,â&#x20AC;? Curry explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We & '

Proposed Dutra asphalt plant forces us to consider what is actually important By Lindsay Pyle

;

ike myself, almost everyone with an opinion on the potential Dutra Asphalt plant at Haystack Landing in Petaluma also has personal interest. I was born and raised in Petaluma, and my response to its growth has been both pride and concern. The truth remains that with growth comes such burdens as more traffic congestion, more housing units and a greater need for tolerance. For the last 10 years, Sonoma and Marin counties have looked to widen the Novato narrows but have lacked the funding. After finally getting the green light from Caltrans last year, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to forge ahead and begin working. They will need asphalt. If the plant goes up in the Haystack Landing zone, just off the Petaluma Boulevard South exit on 101 North, the asphalt source would be very close to the work zone. An asphalt plant anywhere else would involve many miles of travel in order to bring the asphalt to the locale. Sonoma County residents voted to have this area of freeway widenedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and even agreed to have their sales tax increased to fund itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yet there seems to be little or no willingness to accept responsibility in terms of asphalt production. Such concerns are valid. The fumes given off as a byproduct of asphalt production are not good for the environment, nor are they harmless, and the sound of grinding asphalt is noisy. Another concern is the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proximity to the Petaluma River, the wildlife preserve at Shollenberger Park, the nearby schools and neighborhoods. The underlying belief seems to be that these areas do not deserve to be exposed to enivronmental nuisance. Petaluma mayor Pam Torliatt said at a board of supervisors meeting in February that an asphalt plant off this particular exit would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;an eyesore to the gateway of Petaluma.â&#x20AC;? The June 9 reversal of an earlier straw vote held by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors has pushed back the final vote until July 21 and is only keeping the larger issue at bay: privilege. When I asked a representative of a special interest group opposed to the plant where she felt a more â&#x20AC;&#x153;appropriateâ&#x20AC;? place would be, she hesitated for a few seconds. Carefully choosing her response, she replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somewhere remote, like out by the landfill on Meecham Road.â&#x20AC;? I was raised about two miles from that landfill. Just how remote is remote enough? An out-of-sight, out-of-mind philosophy has

run rampant in our society, and not just in Petaluma. If we want that eight-mile stretch of freeway to be widened, the negative effects of an asphalt plant will be felt somewhere, even if it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t directly in downtown Petaluma. Dutra Asphalt Group has hired an environmental specialist who has deemed the project suitable for Petaluma. No surprise. Also unsurprising is that Dutra only answers questions about the project with very carefully coordinated responses. There is a whole philosophy of feigned innocence that I believe feeds the special interest groups who are protesting against the plant. It is common sense that, just like cars, asphalt plants hurt the environmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use them. It also seems to be altogether forgotten that it is precisely Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charm and appeal that has increased its population, thus increasing traffic, thus creating a need for widening the freeway into town. The people of Petaluma actually voted for this change. Widening the Novato narrows would ensure less traffic congestion, and thus a quicker ride to work and probably more leisure time. Yes, we are willing to make a sacrifice for what we wantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the financial one. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough. If an asphalt plant is needed for this project, and if this project is truly important to Sonoma County, then a compromise must be reached. The enemy here isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Dutra. Dutra is a local company, and we should be happy it has been chosen for a large, state-funded project. We should look to ensure its success and work with the company to help it understand that its work is the same as our work. It is not separate from us. We are all working for the same thing. We all want a better community. We all have children and animals and favorite parks and places that we consider sacred. Our values do not overshadow the values of others, but rather mirror them. The difficulty here is meeting halfway. I hope that this issue reminds us that with great privilege comes great responsibility. Sometimes when we want things, we must work and pay for them, and not just with money. It involves things more valuableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; things like time and energy and helping one another.

know where everybody is, but as you look at the surface of the land, you might not recognize it.â&#x20AC;? A long-handled yellow sensor, something like a truncated metal detector or weed-whacker, reads the signal from the purple, grapefruit-sized marker, which is placed 18 inches below the surface (the bodies themselves are, on average, another four feet down). But technology is not what draws people to Fernwood, Curry says. Mostly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmentalism, a desire to use fewer chemicals and other resources, to generate less pollution. And that makes natural burial an appealing alternative to cremation, which remains the dominant practice in this area.

The dead are buried among flowers and fauna with just a frequency ID tag to find them.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cremation uses a significant amount of natural gas,â&#x20AC;? Curry elaborates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So from an environmental standpoint, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest downside. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also putting some pollutants back into the atmosphere. Although we have state-of-the-art equipment that does as much filtering as possible, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still some mercury from people who have the old amalgam fillings that goes back into the atmosphere.â&#x20AC;? Cost may also be a consideration. While there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much difference in the price of the plot itself, Curry notes that with a natural burial, â&#x20AC;&#x153;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not buying a vault, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not buying an expensive casket, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not paying to have a vault set and some of those other fees.â&#x20AC;? The net difference can be â&#x20AC;&#x153;about a 30 to 40 percent savings.â&#x20AC;? For hospice patients, adds Cynthia Beal, there is â&#x20AC;&#x153;an opportunity to think about their deaths in advance. You can plan it so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not at the mercy of whatever options are shown to you in a very short time.â&#x20AC;? Even so, green burials are still rather rare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall that anyone has ever asked for one,â&#x20AC;? reflects Laura Nesius, general manager of Santa Rosa Memorial Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If somebody were to ask us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have no problem doing it,â&#x20AC;? she adds, probably at its new 40-acre Shiloh Annex, south of Windsor. It has â&#x20AC;&#x153;more of a woodsy setting,â&#x20AC;? Nesius says. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to match Fernwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undulating elevations, which adjoin the Golden Gate national Recreation Area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a certified wildlife habitat,â&#x20AC;? Curry points out, with deer, a resident bobcat, occasional coyote sightings and abundant birds, rodents, snakes and small mammals sharing the cemetery site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you put flowers on a grave here, they may be there a week later or they may be eaten by the next morning,â&#x20AC;? she laughs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;depending on whether the deer come through that night.â&#x20AC;?

eanneâ&#x20AC;? had an iron will and a brilliant mind that drew admiration, respect and criticismâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but not often love. When she died in her 90s, colleagues at her funeral service eulogized her with shocking bluntness. Only one person said anything kind, and he seemed to be reaching. In the back of the chapel with my infant son in a stroller, I had no answer for the affronted mortuary worker who leaned toward me and whispered indignantly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is wrong with these people?â&#x20AC;? Most had wondered for years what was wrong with her. Yet months before her death, I photographed Jeanne holding my baby. Wow, did she look different. Being that close to a newborn made her look . . . well, nice. Had she been exposed to more infants during her long, work-driven life, perhaps Jeanne might have softened a little, become a nicer person. Who knows. Anecdotes abound regarding the transformative powers of a baby. So it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me that in a small but growing number of workplaces, babies are helping transform bosses and co-workers into more genuinely related communities of people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the Babies to Work movement, in which mothers get to work while caring for their babies at the workplace for six months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be a movement that is really good for everybody,â&#x20AC;? says Joan Blades, cofounder of MomsRising.org, representing mothers (and those born of mothers) in the policy arena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It offers a work-life integration that makes sense, and companies say that it has been good for their bottom line. It creates community within the workplace. And a lot of those who thought they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it really do.â&#x20AC;? The Babies to Work program is only one of dozens of strategies being used to change the way work is done, says Blades, presently writing a book about the need to restructure American work. Many of the changes Blades calls for have to do with the time framework in which people are expected to do their jobs; presently, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mesh with many peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My ideal is to bring work into the 21st century,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it is not keeping up with the reality of the workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives.â&#x20AC;? By addressing the issues impacting moms and families in the workplace, Moms Rising is leading a push for change that will benefit everyone, whether or not they have kids. In addition to the ability to take babies to work, suggestions include flexible scheduling, telecommuting, job sharing, career customization, part-time options and â&#x20AC;&#x153;onrampsâ&#x20AC;? for parents who take time away from work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to think intelligently about how to structure work,â&#x20AC;? says Blades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, we are making it really hard.â&#x20AC;? Out of 170 countries worldwide, only four do not provide paid leave for new mothers. The United States is one of them. While California was the first state to pass legislation providing paid family leave, Moms Rising, started in 2006 and with now over 1 million members, is lobbying for paid family leave in the rest of the country. Members are also responsible for helping advance the proposed Healthy Families Act, which aims to provide paid sick leave. Sadly, a disproportionately large number of women canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to stay home when they are sick or when a family member is sick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a profound bias against mothers in hiring, wages and advancement,â&#x20AC;? explains Blades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to look at how single mothers are earning 60 cents to an equally educated manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dollar, and married moms are earning 73 cents. So there is a deeper bias against single moms than against mothers who are married, and this has a huge impact on a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic security. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good explanation of why we have so many women and children living in poverty.â&#x20AC;? When I asked Blades what people could do to help, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m telling everyone to join Moms Rising. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about changing the culture and policies so families can thrive.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, I have advice for those workplace infants: Your job is to be yourselves, innocent and disarming, and to help transform the personalities of seemingly unlovable people everywhere. Babies, we need you.

2[^bTc^7^\T One manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearlong adventure in eating and living near the earth By Jonah Raskin This is an excerpt from author and SSU professor Jonah Raskinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new book, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Field Days: A Year of Farming, Eating, and Drinking Wine in Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (University of California Press; $24.95).

n 2006, when I began my odyssey across the landscape of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic farms, I was nearly 65 years old and beginning to feel that I had a finite amount of time on earth. I was living in Santa Rosa in an old barn that had been converted into a small house with electricity, plumbing and windows. It sat on a road dotted with barns filled with melons, hay, wool and animals. The fall semester at the college where I taught writing was drawing to a close. I had time, energy and curiosity. I wanted to get out and explore. Before it was too late, before life passed me by, I wanted to be in touch with the earth again. I wanted to regain something I felt I had lost, and to work alongside men and women who were cultivating the earth. I wanted to eat

as though for the first time, with a sense of newness. I began my quest for the old rural life by going to nearby farms that were on my own road, those that advertised themselves and that I could find without the aid of a map. I went to farms owned by friends, or friends of friends, and there I immediately noticed new directions in agriculture. In the 1970s, when I first arrived in California, farms were often sadly inaccessible, and I had only rarely been able to satisfy my curiosity about crops and barns. Even farmers I knew, such as my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; close friend Benedict Soblerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a veteran apple grower who taught me the art of pruning treesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were often reluctant to let outsiders onto their property. In the 1970s, Benedict owned a beautiful old barn that I coveted, in which he stored his Gravenstein apples, a variety that was the pride of Sebastopol. The barn also served as a garage for his beloved blue Mercedes-Benz. Soon after I arrived in Sonoma, I went to work pruning his apple trees so that sunlight and air might

penetrate to their innermost boughs, and now they looked beautiful. In contrast to Benedictâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm, there were others that I avoided out of fears for my health and safety. Across the street from my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; acres, for instance, there was the farm of a man whose face I rarely saw. Several times each year he used to cover himself from head to toe in protective gear and drive his tractor around his farm, spewing chemicals on the trees and the ground and into the air. Rachel Carson would have been appalled. Afterward, he posted a sign with a skull and crossbones that read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Danger. Keep Out.â&#x20AC;? Of course I kept out! Neither he nor anyone else seemed to consider the fact that the wind blew those toxic chemicals across Morelli Lane and into the fruit trees my father had planted, which neither he nor I wanted to be sprayed. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the chemicals on us, either. That cranky apple farmer, with whom I exchanged heated words on the telephone, felt that he had the right to spray whatever and '% THE BOHEMIAN

whenever he chose to, neighbors be damned, and he felt no compunction about chopping down all the stately redwood trees on land he owned. That was the attitude of many old farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it was their property, and they could do anything they wanted with and to it. This attitude is slowly changing, thanks to environmentalists, whose hard-fought victories benefit everyone. The county of Sonoma still insists in official proclamationsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;mailed with annual tax billsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that citizens have the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right to Farm,â&#x20AC;? and that citizens who live near farms must expect to â&#x20AC;&#x153;be subject to inconvenience or discomfort arising from agricultural operations.â&#x20AC;? But farmers no longer have the right to spray toxic chemicals on crops and into the air. After moving away from the family farm in 2004, I needed to find a place where I could feel close to the earth. I knew I would be welcome at Windrush Farm. Mimi Luebbermann, a farmer in Chileno Valley, invited me to visit. She is a good example of the new farmers who are far more transparent than the farmers of old. As often as farm operations allow, she opens her Windrush Farm to the public. Every summer, swarms of kids arrive to learn what it means to be a farmer and discover the smell of barns and pastures. She has also hosted events for adults. I

attended one such event, when Mimi made dozens of delicious pizzas in her outdoor brick oven, and Molly Katzen, the author of The Moosewood Cookbook, told stories about her legendary hippie restaurant in upstate New York and her own kitchen in Berkeley. I did not notice a gate at the entrance to the long, shaded driveway that led to the farmhouse, or any barriers to the barns, sheds and pasture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcomeâ&#x20AC;? was the watchword, generosity the style. Mimi had come from Oakland, where she raised rabbits and chickens and grew vegetables. For years, she wanted more open space, more land and friendly neighbors who were farmers, too, to whom she could turn for wisdom about crops and animals. In 1995, she made her big move from an urban to a rural existence, and the change ignited her creativity. In the last decade or so, she has written how-to books with titles such as Pay Dirt: How to Raise and Sell Herbs and Produce for Serious Cash, which offer â&#x20AC;&#x153;simple secretsâ&#x20AC;? for farmers and gardeners on how to make money and find happiness by growing orchids, herbs, heirloom tomatoes, cactus, daffodils, quince and kumquats. In these books, which I heard about as she wrote them, she provides valuable information that is not always accessible but all the more important to anyone who wants to farm successfully. How much â&#x20AC;&#x153;serious cashâ&#x20AC;? Mimi makes from her books and her farm I do not know,

and I did not feel it would have been polite to ask. After all, she was from Virginia and had Southern manners, and I did not wish to encroach on her privacy. I could observe, though, that Mimi keeps her farm going with a combination of old ways and reinvented new ones. In addition to selling eggs, rabbits, lamb and wool at farmers markets, she gives classes in the skills she has taught herself and learned from neighboring ranchers. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always on the goâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;up at sunrise most daysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and everyone who knows her comments on her seemingly inexhaustible energy. One of her sons calls her â&#x20AC;&#x153;a whirlwind mom.â&#x20AC;? Her vehicles are usually old, often battered and rarely attractive, but they get her and her goods where they need to go, which is to say that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practical and efficient and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about mere appearances. Mimi was the first person I got to know who talked vigorouslyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;years before it became popular to do soâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about the importance of buying local produce and supporting local farmers. She was a long way ahead of the curve. Even some of her own family laughed at her ideas and thought she was silly and provincial. They pointed out that almost year-round you could get attractive fruits, vegetables and meat from Argentina, Mexico, New Zealand and elsewhere. It took her family and friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and me, tooâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a while to understand that local produce is likely to be safer and fresher and to have more nutrients than produce grown and shipped from far away. Only after outbreaks of contaminated meats, tomatoes, spinach and other fruits and vegetables have many shoppers learned to search out produce grown by responsible farms close to home. The author most helpful on the vast, complex idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the localâ&#x20AC;? is Lucy Lippard. In her groundbreaking The Lure of the Local: Senses of Place in a Multicentered Society, she writes about land, landscapes, art and the balance between urban and rural, public spaces and private ones. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a single major area of contemporary American life that she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touch on, and her provocative book helped me when I went to farms like Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Lippard insists that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that each individual has a point of view. Indeed, I learned that everyone on a farmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from the owner to the fieldworker, tractor driver and truck driverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sees the farm in slightly different ways depending on a variety of factors, including age, ethnicity, gender and class. Moreover, before you can even see a farm you have to believe in it. Otherwise it will remain invisible to you. This is why tourists from urban places who are unaccustomed to farms often do not see them or notice their beauty. If you associate carrots, peas and potatoes with frozen packages in a supermarket, you may not be prepared to see them actually growing in a field. I resonated with Lippardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s observation that â&#x20AC;&#x153;understanding the local history, economics and politics is a complex, fascinating, and contradictory business everywhere.â&#x20AC;? Certainly my part of California

seems as rich, complex and contradictory as any place I have ever known. Sonoma has farms and vineyards, a long coastline along the Pacific, majestic mountains and fertile valleys, Indian tribes, settlers, outlaws, writers, movie producers and gourmet restaurants.

Mimi was the first person I got to know who talked vigorouslyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;years before it became popular to do soâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about the importance of buying local produce.

What is produced in this specific localityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;wine, cheese, wool and olive oilâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is sent around the world, and workers and tourists come here from afar. It is connected to the whole world and is an integral part of it. I remember my exhilaration when in the midst of my farm odyssey I met the men who belong to the international circuit of sheep shearers. Mike Donovan, who was born and raised in New Zealand, traveled to California and from there to Utah, Idaho and Wyoming to shear sheep, and then heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go on to Spain, Scotland and Germany. He was paid $2.65 a head, and he could shear nearly 250 sheep in a day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wherever there are sheep, I go,â&#x20AC;? Donovan told me one afternoon, when he took a break from shearing sheep on a farm close to my own home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, I sheared more than 50,000 sheep.â&#x20AC;? From Mike and Mimi, I learned to respect physical labor and to pay attention to the tasks at hand and the tools in my hands. On days I did not teach at the college, I worked at Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Windrush Farm in Marin. I did the simplest of chores. For a couple of months, on cool afternoons in autumn, I dismantled the raised beds just behind the farmhouse; after that, I carted countless wheelbarrow loads of soil to another corner on the property. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paid a centâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that was agreedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but Mimi always provided thick homemade soups that were meals in themselves, steaming hot after simmering on a back burner of the old-fashioned stove all day long. Sitting in her warm kitchen, I also tasted the cheeses she experimented with from milk from her own cow. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get more local than that. Jonah Raskin will read from and discuss his book on Saturday, Aug. 1, at Windrush Farm to benefit the Sonoma County Book Festival. 2263 Chileno Valley Road, Petaluma. www.socobookfest.org.

>;8E4<0682 en years ago, chamise brush grew wild on Healdsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Dry Creek hills, covering the land. Poking through the gnarly shrub were small, strong olive treesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; scattered, as if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been planted by birds. Russ Messing, upon discovering this gift, remembers thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If olives can grow in this stuff and nobody tends them and there is no fertilizer, there is no water, what would happen if I pulled out all the chamise and planted some olives?â&#x20AC;? This is exactly what he did, tending and nurturing what he loves to call the â&#x20AC;&#x153;magicâ&#x20AC;? of the land.

T

Ten years later, after producing his own olive oil for three years, the resulting Best in Showâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;winning Deergnaw olive oil will be honored at the Harvest Fair and Harvest Fair Awards Night gala on Saturday, Sept. 26. Messingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small three-and-a-half-acre orchard is home to approximately 675 trees of different varietals that he feels he lucked into, among them Northern Italian casaliva and taggiasca and Southern Italian coraina and nocciara; also included are French picholine and Tuscan pendolino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you think about it, if you are in Italy, down in the southernmost part of Italy,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the trees that grow there are the trees that grow there. You are not going to cross them with some trees from Lombardia in the North. So that is what I did, and it seems to have worked out very well.â&#x20AC;? Deergnaw is rich, ďŹ&#x201A;avorful and uniquely fragrant, with grassy notes hitting the tongue and a peppery taste waking up the senses. It has been gaining reputation, but Messing sells the oil primarily at his local Healdsburg farmers market. While standing cheerfully at his table at the market, he says that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the company to get too big. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like coming here,â&#x20AC;? he enthuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sells out here, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a marketer and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do that. This is more fun.â&#x20AC;? Ten years ago, Messingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trees were small, just gallonsized. Now they grow 10 to 12 feet tall, producing over two and a half tons of olives annually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The land does have a certain magic to it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thank my lucky stars all the time that somehow I lucked into this piece of property and what my wife has created more than me. She is the architect of it all.â&#x20AC;? His youthful glow shows that he truly loves his work and connects to the land in a compassionate and rich way. Deergnaw olive oil is a result of his passion and love, tasted in each drop.

Wells Guthrie earned his bona ďŹ des laboring two years in the employ of M. Chapoutier, a major producer in the northern RhĂ´ne River Valley. He returned to Sonoma County with a passion for Syrah in particular, and lowalcohol, food-friendly continental style wines in general, and cofounded Copain (pronounced â&#x20AC;&#x153;co-pawnâ&#x20AC;?) Wine Cellars and custom crush in a Santa Rosa warehouse. Favorable reception of Copainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s product has led to the establishment of a new facility on Eastside Road. Hidden from the road, up a gravel drive, the California barn-style winery features a cool, dark and spacious tasting room styled rustically with recycled barnwood paneling and concrete ďŹ&#x201A;oor. The bar fronts double doors looking into the tank room, while windows provide a panoramic view of the Russian River Valley. With faint wisps of toast and brown spice, the 2007 Tous Ensemble Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($30) seemed typical of Copain wineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gentle oak treatment. The appealing red licorice and cherryraspberry aromas lurk in a sultry zone a full level below jammy. Black cherry and dark plum ďŹ&#x201A;avors bide their time in Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre blend 2005 Les Copains Paso Robles ($40), under layers of iron and shale with obvious potential rewards after decanting or cellaring. The opaque 2006 Tous Ensemble Mendocino County Syrah ($20) had the grapey, purple marker hallmarks of a young, intense Syrah needing time, while warm ginger cake ďŹ&#x201A;avors provide more immediate gratiďŹ cation. The 2006 Les Voisin McDowell Valley Syrah ($35), with roasted nuts and cherry-berry notes, was made more approachable with the addition of 25 percent Grenache.

2WTTaD_8cžb6^X]Vc^6TcF^abT Transition communities gear up for societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collapse with a shovel and a smile By Alastair Bland

C

hree years ago, David Fridley purchased two and a half acres of land in rural Sonoma County. He planted drought-resistant blue Zuni corn, fruit trees and basic vegetables while leaving a full acre of extant forest for firewood collection. Today, Fridley and several friends and family subsist almost entirely off this small plot of land, with the surplus going to public charity. But Fridley is hardly a homegrown hippie who spends his leisure time gardening. He spent 12 years consulting for the oil industry in Asia. He is now a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and a fellow of the Post Carbon Institute in Sebastopol, where members discuss the problems inherent to fossil-fuel dependency. Fridley has his doubts about renewable energies, and he has grave doubts about the future of crude oil. In fact, he believes to a

certainty that society is literally running out of gas and that, perhaps within years, the trucks will stop rolling into Safeway and the only reliable food available will be that grown in our backyards. Fridley, like a few other thinkers, activists and pessimists, could talk all night about â&#x20AC;&#x153;peak oil.â&#x20AC;? This catch phrase describes a scenario, perhaps already unfurling, in which the easy days of oilbased society are over, a scenario in which global oil production has peaked and in which every barrel of crude oil drawn from the earth from that point forth is more difficult to extract than the barrel before it. According to peak oil theory, the time is approaching when the effort and cost of extraction will no longer be worth the oil itself, leaving us without the fuel to power our transportation, factories, farms, society and the very essence of our oil-dependent lives. Fridley believes the change will be very unpleasant for many people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are a typical American and have expectations of increasing income, cheap food,

nondiscretionary spending, leisure time and vacations in Hawaii, then the change we expect soon could be what you would consider â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;doom,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he says soberly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because your life is going to fall apart.â&#x20AC;?

The Great Reskilling But is it the end of the world? Fridley and other supporters of the Transition movement donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it is. First sparked in 2007 in Totnes, England, Transition was launched when one Rob Hopkins recognized that modern Western society cannot continue at its current pace of life as fast access to oil begins to dwindle. Global warming and economic meltdown are the two other principle drivers of the Transition movement, but in an ideal â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transition Town,â&#x20AC;? society would be ready for such changes. With limited gas-powered transport or oil-based products, a Transition communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens would live within cycling distance of one another in a township built upon complete self-sufficiency, with extremely localized (% THE BOHEMIAN

infrastructure for agriculture, clothes making, metal working and the other basics of life which the Western world largely abandoned to factories in the late 1800s, when oil power turned life into a relatively leisurely vacation from reality. Now, Transitionists say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get back to workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and quick. Localized efforts have sprouted from the ground up in Santa Cruz, Cotati, Sebastopol, San Francisco and many other towns worldwide, where residents and neighbors are putting their heads together and collaborating on ways to relocalize themselves, bolster self-sufficiency and build the resilience that communities will need to absorb the shock of peak oil. Scott McKeown is among several initiators of Transition Sebastopol. A 53year-old event coordinator by vocation, McKeown believes that as early as 2012 the global economy could founder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going to hit the fan,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there yet, but we will be very soon.â&#x20AC;? McKeown founded Peak Oil Sebastopol in late 2007 as a public discussion forum for what was then becoming a popular topic of relevance among social reformers. Yet Peak Oil Sebastopol eventually proved a bit too heavy on the talking for McKeown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to shift from a discussion group to an action-based effort,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transition attracted me as a way in which we could actually begin doing something.â&#x20AC;? Transition Sebastopol was born in 2008 as the ninth Transition Town in the United States. Boulder was the first; Sandpoint, Idaho, the second. Today, 27 Transition Towns, also called Initiatives, have assumed life across the nation, and what began as an idea has become a concrete reality in which people are taking action. In particular, McKeown has seen tremendous community interest in the growing of food. Currently, the average parcel of food comes from untold distances away. The common estimate is 1,500 miles, though some experts assure that most food travels much farther. Such external dependence will no longer be feasible after peak oil, and communities must be capable of producing all their own goods in fields, orchards and gardens within miles. In and around Totnes, for example, community nut trees have been planted as a sure source of protein and calories in an uncertain future. In outlying regions of the Bay Area, backyard food production is already an afterwork hobby for thousands, and interest in edible gardens appears to be growing fast. At Harmony Farm Supply in Sebastopol, demand for edible plant seeds, starters and saplings has never been greater, according to nursery manager Kirsten Tripplett. She estimates that sales of lettuce, kale and tomato seedlings has jumped by 25 percent this year, with a particularly large portion of sales going to customers who have never before gardened. Fruit and nut saplings, too, sold out weeks ahead of schedule this winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My reading is that this is the silver lining to the economy going south,â&#x20AC;? she says.

McKeown, though, calls food production â&#x20AC;&#x153;the entry-level thing to doâ&#x20AC;? among Transitionists; other essential actions must be taken for a Transition Town to cushion itself against the drastic changes predicted in post-oil society. A viable Transition Town must be capable of producing its own materials, tools and other products that society now imports from half the globe away. With machines and factories no longer readily available, almost every citizen would need to participate at some level in production of food, energy and goods. To address this, Transition founder Hopkins details a 12-part process in The Transition Handbook, which has sold more than 10,000 copies nationwide. In its pages he describes, among other essentials, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Great Reskilling,â&#x20AC;? an effort in which communities must retrain men and women in such trades and artistries as seed-saving and food-growing, pickling vegetables, building simple structures, installing rain catchment systems, building composting toilets, and many other fundamental life skills which most of us simply know nothing about.

Crude Scenario Yet it was only a little over a century ago that society first got swept up on the thrilling wave of oil-age progress. In the 1850s, societies functioned largely as local entities, without deep reliance on global economies or crude oil. Many, if not most, Americans lived on or near farms. We knew how to labor with our hands and feed ourselves. In short, people workedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and our elders can just about remember that era. In fact, The Transition Handbook includes a chapter titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honoring the Elders,â&#x20AC;? urging Transitionists to dredge from old-timers information and anecdotes from the days before cheap oil. McKeown is currently at work on such a project for Transition Sebastopol, seeking out locals in their 80s and 90s who were young adults during or before the Great Depression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would do us good to talk with these people who remember what it was like to live in a pre-hyperconsumption era,â&#x20AC;? he says. Michael Levy, a private music teacher who helped found Transition Santa Cruz last summer, agrees that scaling back on individual consumption is among the most fundamental of actions in the Transition movement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to grow food or preserve food so that we can have things in the winter that grow in the summer. We also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to make basic things, like structures and buildings. Even simple tasks like repairing clothes, we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even bother anymore. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become a throwaway society.â&#x20AC;? With peak oil and economic ruin looming over us like teetering skyscrapers, Transitionists argue that we can no longer afford such wastefulness. For a while, perhaps even a few more years, this matter may remain one of individual choice and lifestyle, but eventually prices will rise, imported products will begin dwindling from shelves, and we will have no choice but to move into

a new era. Fridley says too many Americans believe in solutions to all problems, but peak oil is a terrible anomaly among crises, he explains, because there is no solution. Fridley doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even see any hope in solar, wind, water and other renewable energy sources. Even nuclear power creates only electricity, while crude oil is the basis for thousands of synthetic products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing that can replace oil and allow us to maintain life at the pace weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been living,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crude oil is hundreds of millions of years of stored sunlight, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it all up in a few generations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like living off of a savings account, whereas solar energy is like working and living off your daily wages.â&#x20AC;? The sheer cost-efficiency of oil eclipses all supposed alternatives. Removed from the ground and burned, oil makes things move almost miraculously. A tank of gasoline in a sedan holds enough energy to equal approximately five years of one personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rigorous manual labor. Historically, too, oil has been very easy to get since the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first well was drilled in Pennsylvania in 1859; for each barrelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of energy invested in the process of accessing crude oil, 30 barrels are produced, says Fridley. By contrast, ethanol is a paltry substitute; each barrelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of ethanol invested in ethanol production produces a mere 1.2 barrels of raw product. Other renewables offer similarly poor returns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thermodynamics just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add up,â&#x20AC;? Fridley says. Put another way, societies of the preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;oil age worked their butts off. They had to. Roughly 90 percent of the population toiled in jobs that produced our energy, food and water, while just 10 percent reaped the rewards, holding soft-palmed positions in politics, the arts, begging and prostitution, to name several fields. Today, by contrast, merely 5 percent of Americans work jobs that relate to producing food and energy, while 95 percent reap the rewards, many working at abstract tasks in offices. In a world suddenly without machine labor, this top-heavy imbalance is poised to capsize.

Post-Peak Pleasures Asher Miller, executive director of the Post Carbon Institute, has been trying to convey the urgency of peak oil to the North Bay community for several years. Miller, a full supporter of the Transition movement, believes global peak oil occurred last summer. From here on out, we will see severe price instability of many foods and products as change comes unfurling. The age of cheap, easy energy is over. Miller likens the last 150 years to a feeding frenzy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of thing happens to any species that suddenly finds an abundant food source. Its population explodes and things go way out of balance. Oil was our food source, and we went crazy for a while.â&#x20AC;? The theory of abiotic oil counters that of peak oil. The theory holds that forces within the mantle of the earth create crude oil just as fast as we burn it up. Proponents of the notion believe, then, that oil is a renewable

resource and that peak oil cannot happen. Some of these same theorists have called peak oil a lie promoted by greater powers as a means of artificially hiking prices. Little to no evidence, however, supports the existence of abiotic oil. Even the peak oil theory does not claim that oil will ever run out entirely; it will only become increasingly scarce and expensive. Miller believes the things we have today may still be available in the simpler times ahead; there will just be fewer of them and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more expensive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always be able to get something if you pay for it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just might cost you $10,000 to buy a computer.â&#x20AC;? Fridley does not see peak oil as doomsday, though he predicts that there might be â&#x20AC;&#x153;dieoff,â&#x20AC;? just as marine algae bloom and crash periodically. In fact, Fridley views Transition as a process of world improvement. The environment around us has been falling apart for decades due to our excessive lifestyles, he notes. In our oceans and wildlands, doomsday has already arrived with deforestation, water pollution, fisheries collapse, extinction and other plagues. Peak oil presents an urgent cause to rethink and reshape our lives and the world for the better, he says. Jennifer Gray, who founded Transition United States in Sebastopol two years ago, also believes peak oil could open doors to happiness that most Americans never knew were there. A native of the United Kingdom, Gray moved to Mill Valley in 2007 after helping to get Transition rolling in Totnes. She believes that redefinition of wealth is one of the essentials to the Transition movement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make that paradigm shift that having less may actually mean that you have much more, and in this country itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to convince people of that.â&#x20AC;?

Shit Has Hit But the worst-case predictions of post-oil society come from Santa Rosa attorney Matt Savinar, a controversial figure in peak oil premonitions. His website, Peak Oil: Life After the Oil Crash (www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net), offers an informational survivorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guide for what he is certain is an impending disaster. While other peak oil thinkers frequently talk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;whenâ&#x20AC;? the shit hits the fan, Savinar says it already has. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The shit is hitting the fan now,â&#x20AC;? he says unequivocally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just happening in slow motion, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hitting equally in all places.â&#x20AC;? Asked what individuals can do to ease their way into life after the oil crash, the 30-year-old advises people to â&#x20AC;&#x153;learn basic camping skills.â&#x20AC;? Wilderness survival tactics will also be handy in the world thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dawning. He urges Americans to relocate geographically to within miles of their families, as social support networks will be crucial in the coming age. For himself, Savinar hopes to marry into a large family. While Transitionists see the coming change as one of potential enrichmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; community gardens, cycling, skilled artisans at every cornerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Savinarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlook is a bleak (' and shadowy contrast. He warns that

in the foreseeable future the world will experience â&#x20AC;&#x153;staggering horror.â&#x20AC;? While life in remembered times has been about â&#x20AC;&#x153;the pursuit of victory and money,â&#x20AC;? life in the near future, he predicts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;will be about tragedy. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to externalize this reality to the future and to other places only because we had access to this incredibly dense source of energy,â&#x20AC;? he says. No longer. Savinar canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say when, but he believes that a time will come well within just one generation when even supermarkets must close their doors. Then, unless the goal of Transitionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to build resilience into communitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;takes effect soon, chaos could only ensue in a culture so spoiled by excess and mass consumption as ours. In the North Bay, says the Post Carbon Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miller, residents have the open space, the soil, the sun, the water and the resources to hit the ground running when peak oil arrives. What the community doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have, he says, is a full collective understanding of how much people need to cut back on individual consumption and how quickly they need to do it. Savinar says too many peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happiness depends dearly on external items and f limsy concepts of wealth. These people must reprioritize their value systems now and quit â&#x20AC;&#x153;waddling through Wal-Mart.â&#x20AC;? They must wean themselves from the comforts of supermarkets, leisure time and television. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;must forfeit luxuries; instead of feasting on steak, one may have to give thanks to a plate of beans and rice. Instead of vacations to Europe, we might have to settle for camping weekends at Salt Point State Park. Because, if the predictions are true, we will not always have Paris.

Forever Growth? Fridley has seen peak oil coming for years. From his small Sonoma farm, he may be prepared to feed himself, but our worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dependence on oil goes far beyond food production. Even electric machines need crude oil byproduct. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single machine in the nation runs on lubrication,â&#x20AC;? Fridley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If that lube isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there, then what?â&#x20AC;? In theory, the world freezes up. A person may first digest this concept as an abstract, distant nebula, like climate change, extinctions, water pollution and other newspaper headlines. However, when the reality of peak oil hitsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when it hits a person so that his or her personal life is deeply affectedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it hits hard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to internalize,â&#x20AC;? says Miller, who has seen many people react in many ways to being told that the world in which they have grown so comfortable is about to end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One tendency is for people to believe that there is a solution, that technology will fix it or that the powers that be will fix it.â&#x20AC;? But technology and the powers that be run on oil. Santa Rosa author Richard

Heinberg, a senior fellow with the Post Carbon Institute, described peak oil in his much lauded 2003 book aptly titled The Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies, and indeed, most experts on the matter now agree that the party is over. Transitionists are readying for the new era with open arms while struggling to convince others of the severity of the matter. In Santa Cruz, several city figures, including councilman Don Lane and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate action coordinator Ross Clark, have stepped up and proven themselves allies of the Transition movement, attending multiple community meetings. San Francisco, too, has acknowledged peak oil, and a city-appointed task force recently submitted to the supervisors a 120-page report detailing the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vulnerabilities to the crisis. Savinar has been trying for years to invite government participation in peak oil preparation. In 2005, he sent a letter of warning to each member of the Santa Rosa City Council, advising that they begin aggressively readying the community for peak oil and its aftermath. The letter was articulate and â&#x20AC;&#x153;lawyerly,â&#x20AC;? he says, and included a copy of Heinbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Over in each package, yet not one councilperson responded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I guarantee that if I was a car manufacturer and I scribbled out a letter with crayons, they would have answered me,â&#x20AC;? he says with a short laugh. Fridley also believes assistance will not come from the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders. Transition can only be a grass-roots revolution. He points out that Secretary of Energy Steven Chu was previously the director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where Fridley has done much of his thinking about peak oil and Transition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Chu] was my boss,â&#x20AC;? Fridley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knows all about peak oil, but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about it. If the government announced that peak oil was threatening our economy, Wall Street would crash. He just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say anything about it.â&#x20AC;? Thus, world leaders would like to have the populace believe that this oil-age feeding frenzy will continue forever, that the economy will continue to expand and grow. At the 2008 G-8 Summit on the Japanese island of Hokkaido, for example, our leaders declared a resolution to resume economic growth. Fridley says such a goal is impossible, yet no one wants to face the fact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ask scientists if something can grow forever exponentially, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then ask how our economy can keep on growing, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, it has to.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Elsewhere, many politicians and leaders have been reluctant to address peak oil, and full governmental leadership may never arrive. Levy believes that politicians locally and nationally will be even more reluctant to discuss peak oil than theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to address climate change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transition is probably going to grow from the ground up before the government comes onboard,â&#x20AC;? he predicts.

eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just back from TED, the inaugural and widely publicized Technology, Entertainment and Design roundtable for Hillary Clintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State Department. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fresh off a lively debate on NPRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Science Friday concerning the future of nuclear energy. And still, Stewart Brand is hardly a mainstreet household name. Readers of a certain age and cultural bent might recall Brand for founding, editing and publishing the National Book Awardâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;winning Whole Earth Catalog, or for references to him in Tom Wolfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New Journalism psychedelic classic The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Brand is perhaps the late 20thâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;early 21st centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most effective and unorthodox visionary. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 70-year-old white guy living on a tugboat in Sausalito who engages, counsels and bills the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthiest and most powerful by playing them through â&#x20AC;&#x153;scenariosâ&#x20AC;? at the Global Business Network (GBN) he helped found. Less well-heeled folk, those with stakes in the artistic, cultural, technological, intellectual and political etherscapes, might well know of and either love or dislike Brand, but should

they be 45 years of age or younger, they likely donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know one damn thing about him. Brand is an Exeter- and Stanford-educated biologist and army-trained Merry Prankster who conceived and organized the Trips Festival, three days of seminal San Francisco â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s madness featuring Owsley acid, experimental film, dance, guerrilla theater and colorful amoeba-like liquid projections, all melded together with Big Brother and the Holding Company, the Grateful Dead, the God Box, spacemen, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;masturbation sermon,â&#x20AC;? Allen Ginsberg and the amplified ongoing rant of One Flew Over the Cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest author Ken Kesey. The Trips Festival also featured Brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own presentation of his multimedia roadshow, America Needs Indians. To create his show, Brand spent time on Warm Springs, Blackfoot, Navajo, Hopi, Papago and other Indian reservations. These days, Brand, via GBN, works with tribes like Dow, Bechtel, ExxonMobil, Microsoft, PG&E, Monsanto and CitiGroup. First published in 1968, Brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Whole Earth Catalog inspired a younger generation to head â&#x20AC;&#x153;back to the landâ&#x20AC;? in order to pursue simpler, more naturalistic and organic lifestyles, leaving crowded cities and consumer-addictive suburbias behind for good. Ironically, Brand now finds the unprecedented and accelerating degree to which humanity is fleeing rural ancestral homes for gargantuan squatter cities as a positive and encouraging trendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, because he feels itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way to feed these masses, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become an enthusiastic proponent of genetically modified foods. As a Stanford biology student back in the 1950s, Brand came under the tutelage of entomologist and renowned ecologist Paul Ehrlich. Erlichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book The Population Bomb inspired Brand to organize a public fast highlighting spiraling world population growth, the consequence of which, Ehrlich forecast, would mean that â&#x20AC;&#x153;hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.â&#x20AC;? Brand says he learned an important lesson from the shattering of Ehrlichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crystal ball; in fact, the Brand of today goes so far as to suggest that we may require more, not less, people living here on planet Earth. Brand has long been an advocate and promoter of carbon-free energy development and was an early opponent of nuclear energy. However, for the past few years, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fashioned himself into an environmentalist lightning rod. He now advocates for the development and proliferation of nuclear energy plants across the globe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Micro-reactor designs are coming out fast,â&#x20AC;? Brand enthused recently on NPR. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are down [to the] 25 megawatt, 35 megawatt, 50 megawatts level. They cost about a million dollars a megawatt. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quick to build. They look like a whole different animal than the 1.2 gigawatt [or] the 1.6 gigawatt reactors.â&#x20AC;?

Brand, who declined to be interviewed for this essay, seems to delight in these shifting positions, self-identifying, for example, as an environmental heretic. During the June 5 NPR Science Friday debate, Brand explained why he flipped on the nuclear energy issue after addressing human potential for harnessing solar power. “If we get solar coming down from space, where it’s always on, then it’s base-load power,” he noted. “But it’s really expensive to get there, unless we start mining asteroids. . . . So it looks to me like we’re stuck with nuclear as the low-to-no-carbon source of base-load power for some decades to come.” Progressive critics have flogged Brand for his suggestion that all the world’s spent nuclear rods be reprocessed at a single site, from which fuel would be redistributed. That idea, they say, is a recipe for totalitarian control. Brand, however, says our imminent and growing coal-carbon crisis eclipses that of nuclear waste, proposing that such waste either remain in dry-cast storage or be sent off to an underground salt area in New Mexico. What Brand doesn’t mention, according to Sourcewatch and the Center for Media and Democracy, is that he may not be an honest broker on this topic. They point out that over a dozen major players—those who stand to make billions should the nuclear phoenix rise again—pay Mr. Brand for his GBN services. While convolutions and contradictions seem his stock in trade, and while a host of progressives find his latter-day causes disturbing, or even abhorrent, what’s most intriguing is that each of Brand’s flip-flops both make and don’t make perfect sense, depending upon one’s perspective. In fact, much of the controversy and confusion over his opinions derives from the simple fact that Brand deals most prominently in the future—and it hasn’t yet arrived. In a 1972 article he wrote for Rolling Stone magazine titled “Fanatic Life and Symbolic Death Among the Computer Bums,” Brand noted that “all historians understand that they must never, ever talk about the future. Their discipline requires that they deal in fact, and future doesn’t have any yet.” So since the future doesn’t have any facts, just who’s to say what it will look like? Well, Stewart Brand, for one. Brand minced few words when, in 2004, he wrote, “Over the next 10 years, I predict the mainstream of the environmental movement will reverse its opinion and activism in four major areas: population growth, urbanization, genetically engineered organisms and nuclear power.” Predictions have evolved into an industry for Brand. Thirteen years ago, he cofounded the 501c3 Long Now Foundation, dedicated to “creatively foster long-term thinking and responsibility in the framework of the next 10,000 years.” In 2001, he and Wired magazine’s Kevin Kelly spun out their Long Bets project from within the Long Now Foundation. At Long Bets, participants predict and wager on the future, publicly, using their real names. One contributor’s prediction foresees Google Street View becoming a “Grand Theft Auto–

like” gaming platform. Wagers include an $800 bet that Sasquatch will be discovered by 2025, and a $400 bet that in the year 2108 “an independent, sentient artificial intelligence will exist as a corporation, both providing its services as well as making all financial and strategic decisions.” With Brand’s youthful, unbounded energy, curiosity and ideas spinning constantly in motion, his many-faceted projects were destined to be writ large in the canon of the countercultural 1960s. He was present at the founding of both the ecology and the backto-the-land movements. It was Brand who largely popularized the metaphor of tools— from reliable ancient and low-tech tools to cutting edge technologies of the mind; from planting organic seeds to planting space colonies on distant planets. When the time arrived, Brand likewise rode the pulse of the ’70s and ’80s. He wrote, organized, designed and taught. He founded the WELL, the world’s first cyber community, and in the twilight of Reagan, he cofounded the Global Business Network. Almost antithetically, in 1990 Brand joined the board of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which fights both large corporations and the government, advocating for personal freedom on issues including digital communications, free speech, privacy, anonymity and consumer rights. Brand abetted the birth of personal computing. He helped transform the internet from an obscure government project to an ever more powerful array of communicative lightning strikes. Brand’s been active in emerging media and technology developments all along. He’s a creative gaming visionary and an intellectual gadfly, placing bets, embracing politics, publishing and establishing the School of Compassionate Skills. And he has engaged and become friends with many of the planet’s movers and shakers by projecting his talent as an envelope-pushing impresario. Now 70, Brand still attracts great minds of the modern era. From cybernetics pioneers Norbert Wiener and Gregory Bateson to anthropologist Margaret Mead and futurist Buckminster Fuller decades ago; to the Long Term Thinking seminars he’s hosted since 2003, featuring the likes of musician Brian Eno, cyberpunk writers William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, and philosopher and political economist Francis Fukuyama, Brand has exhibited an uncanny knack for connecting with the world’s best and brightest. One could place an enormous question mark around the being that is Stewart Brand, much like many puzzle that two members of the Grateful Dead, hippiedom’s most revered band and Brand’s own countercultural contemporaries, belong to the ultraconservative, Republican, corporate and military-industrial Bohemian Club. But if anything’s clear in referencing Stewart Brand, it’s that labels like left, right, conservative, progressive and radical are meaningless. Taking an extremely long view of the world’s challenges may not actually provide accurate snapshots of the future, but taking the long, long view surely eats through orthodoxy like acid.

Ortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debauched â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at MTC still shockingly funny By David Templeton

?

laywright Joe Orton, by the time he died in 1967, had already shown himself to be uninterested in writing nice, safe comedies. As one might expect from a writer whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spent six months in prison for vandalizing books in the public library (he replaced their covers with eyeopening variations of his own), Orton was an artist who thrived on upsetting people, but also lived to make them laugh. His plays routinely inspired shock, anger and outrage, and only came to be appreciated as comic masterpieces later, after everyone had finally calmed down. While critics and other authors frequently praised Ortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work (at his funeral, playwright Harold Pinter called Orton â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bloody marvelous writerâ&#x20AC;?), the theatergoing public never knew what to think of his plays, calling them debauched, perverse, disgusting and obsceneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while never denying that the stuff was also drop-dead funny. What the Butler Saw, which has just opened a three-week run at Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marin Theatre Company, was Ortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last play. He was murdered by his lover Kenneth Halliwell in 1967 less than a month after completing the script, a mad-cap sex romp set in an English insane asylum. When Butler was finally staged

in 1969, audiences called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;filth,â&#x20AC;? often right in the middle of the production, while the critics proclaimed it ahead of its time. Evidently, they were right. Ten years later, What the Butler Saw (a euphemism for an English â&#x20AC;&#x153;peep showâ&#x20AC;?) was finally recognized as Ortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s masterpiece, and following a successful run in London in the 1970s has gone on to be seen as the groundbreaking comedy that it is. As evidenced by the current MTC production, Butler, even after 40 years, still has the power to shock, and though seriously dated, it is as outrageously, scandalously funny as ever. Dr. Prentice (Charles Shaw Robinson, channeling a dry, midlife Peter Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole) runs a large mental hospital in London as his sexually adventurous wife (the great Stacy Ross) avoids sex with her husband while pursuing it everywhere else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You were born with your legs apart,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Prentice tells her early in the script. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll send you to the grave in a Y-shaped coffin.â&#x20AC;? The events of the play are set in motion when Dr. Prentice attempts to trick the virginal, none-too-bright Geraldine (Kat Walleck) into having sex with him as part of her interview for a job at the clinic. When Mrs. Prentice arrives on the scene, forcing the good doctor to hide his now-naked would-be assistant, the young womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dress is passed on from character to character as a series of increasingly momentous misunderstandings take place. These include the participation of a sexually ambiguous bellboy (Rowan Brooks), attempting to blackmail Mrs. Prentice with photos from a distasteful recent rendezvous; the mad psychiatrist Dr. Rance (Andy Murray), who sees everything in terms of its probable psychological aberrance; and a painfully serious policeman (Kevin Rolston) hot on the trail of Sir Winston Churchillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enormous missing penis, recently lost after a terrorist bombing that destroyed a statue of the good man. The missing body part may be in the hands (so to speak) of the increasingly distraught Geraldine, committed to the asylum by Dr. Rance, who believes her to have a psychological disorder causing her to take off her clothes in front of strange men. It gets weirder. Much of the material is so of-its-ownera that it hardly makes sense in 2009, what with references to â&#x20AC;&#x153;white tar babies,â&#x20AC;? use of the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;rapeâ&#x20AC;? as interchangeable with sex and the casual use of the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;nymphomania,â&#x20AC;? long since abandoned by psychologists as sexist and wrongheaded. Director Amy Glazer is wise to keep the happenings grounded in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, with superb costuming, set design, and musical interludes that include Tom Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New Pussycat.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Food, Inc.,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most necessary movie, exposes American agribusiness By Richard von Busack

>

ne could call Robert Kennerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brave documentary Food, Inc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Inedible Truth.â&#x20AC;? Graphics turn the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s titles into labels at a supermarket, which is the perfect place to start; at the market, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lulled by images of red barns and green fields. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The veil is drawn,â&#x20AC;? announces Fast Food Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author Eric Schlosser, who charges that our food has changed more in the past 50 years than it has in human history. We can see that change vividly in Food, Inc., as when we drive past the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation on Interstate 5, its odor present for nine miles. Defying the lawyers, one corporate chicken farmer shows us her wretched, antibiotic-packed birds in a pile, so genetically breast-plumped that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unable to walk more than a few steps. Lobbyist foxes patrol these mega-henhouses. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industry lobbyist is tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulator, as sure as todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pig is tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bacon, and the sharecropper-waged farmers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in any position to complain. From the air, we visit Tar Heel, N.C., site of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest slaughterhouse. Hidden cameras show us the inside. Kenner tells of how Big Ag recruits bankrupt Mexican corn farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;driven out of business by cheap American corn, thanks to NAFTAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who were solicited in their own country to do this dangerous and poorly paid pig butchering. Drooling, packed-in steersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;actually seen herringboned into a freight car in one overhead shotâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are fattened with cheap Iowa corn. It breeds E. coli in their guts. The nearly annual outbreaks of E. coli are seemingly the cost of business, a price paid even by spinach-eating vegetarians. Meanwhile, interviewee Barbara Kowalcyk tries year after year to get a law

passed to allow the USDA to close down toxic slaughterhouses. The law is to be called Kevinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law, after her two-and-a-half-year old son who he was killed by a bad hamburger from a plant that dawdled for weeks over whether to recall its tainted meat. She describes what it was like to watch her child die, but she has to watch what she says; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a felony to libel hamburger in Colorado. No, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a joke. Prefer tofu? Monsanto hires frightening investigators to make sure that no farmers save the seeds from the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patented soybeans, now grown in a 90 percent market share in the United States. Too bad genetically engineered pollen doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize a fence, as many farmers have discovered in court. Food, Inc. tries to end upbeat by counseling fine-print reading, farmers market attendance and gardening. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggested that we pressure the FDA to monitor mega-slaughterhouses instead of harassing smaller agriculturalists; one such is the slightly messianic Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms in Virginia, who gladly allows us to watch how the chickens get it in the neck on his spread. As director, Kenner canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be accused of starry-eyed idealism. These days, even WalMart gets into bed with organic growers. We see two of their reps paying a visit to as perfect-looking a Vermont dairy farm as you ever saw on the side of a lunch box. The film ends with a Woody Guthrie anthem and the reminder that if the United States could make Big Tobacco heel, that agribusinessesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wasteful and deadly practices can be stopped. You need to see this film. In one and a half enlightening and enraging hours, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tutorial on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the other end of your fork. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Food, Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, June 19, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinema, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

is the sound of sunrise, as magisterial as it gets. When Bodlovich swipes his pick across the round-wound strings while picking out low notes on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lumpy,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like skipping through sidewalk puddles. With Hammerhead, calling Bodlovich a jazz artist isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough anymore. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on some other plane. Celebrate his CD release show on Saturday, June 20, at the Russian River Brewing Company. 725 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. Free. 707.545.2337.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be YouTube stations, where you can edit and upload videos of the fair, free skateboard parking at the gate and, best of all, an actual text-messaging competition. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss it on Wednesday, June 24, at the SonomaMarin Fair. 175 Fairgrounds Drive, Petaluma. 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;11pm.

Here Comes the Sun Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summertime, the sun is shining, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all things solar at Solar Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Solar Fair this weekend, where interested parties can find all about harnessing the power of the sun. Want to add solar panels to your house? Even better, want to learn about government programs to help finance them? Interested in a job in the solar industry, or just want to learn about energy efficiency? The Solar Fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the place. With over 14 food and drink booths will be on hand and over 20 solar vendors, the only thing missing is live music. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where John Allair, Blusion, Fishbear and the Taiko Drummers come in. It all goes down on Saturday, June 20, at the Finley Center. 2060 West College Ave., Santa Rosa. 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. Free. 707.284.9799.

Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone rings, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maya Rudolph and Ravi Coltrane coming to join them, when who should walk by listening to Ziggy Marley but Chastity Bono. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, Chastity!â&#x20AC;? shouts Willis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hear youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting a sex-change operation! Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all celebrate! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call up Dakota Johnson and Natalie Cole, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go see the Wallf lowers on Thursday, June 18, at the Napa Valley Opera House.â&#x20AC;? 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $85. 707.226.7372.

Swinginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an Art Before the Marin Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lagoon fills with ref lections of Ferris Wheels and nightly fireworks, settle into the relative quiet at the Marin Art Festival this weekend. In the shadow of Frank Lloyd Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed Marin Center, over 250 fine artists will be on hand showing, discussing and selling their work. Festival food includes Louisiana gumbo, Greek salads, French pastries, Southwestern chicken sandwiches and, naturally, grilled Marin oysters. The musical lineup includes Latin and Cuban fare on Saturday, courtesy of Fito Reinoso, Ray Obeido and Patricio Angulo, while Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given over to the swing sounds of Swing Fever, Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums and the triumphant return of Lee Press-On and the Nails. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all happening Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, June 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;21, at the Marin Center. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. $10. 415.388.0151.

Pick Slidinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Even from the title, Hammerhead, one can ascertain that Jason Bodlovichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest album is more forceful and driven than the average instrumental guitar release. Heavy percussion, funk grooves and technical precision underscore the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role as a conjurer of images. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grazinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? though not a country song, still conjures haystacks and wooden fences, while â&#x20AC;&#x153;10 Raysâ&#x20AC;?

Brokencyde and Major Lazer: total garbage vs. total summertime jam ime was when teenagers only had the allowance to buy one album, and for the rest of the week, that album would define you in your circle of friends and classmates. You either bought the Smithsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Meat Is Murder or Sadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Life. You either bought Public Enemyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fear of a Black Planet or Bell Biv Devoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Poison. You either bought Franz Ferdinandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-titled debut or Modest Mouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Good News for People Who Like Bad News. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bring them home, tape them for each other, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d talk about for the next seven days. The purchasing model may have changed, but the idea of deďŹ ning oneself by music has not. Teenagers this week have a pretty clear choice to make. The band Brokencyde was a pretty funny joke last year with a video, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freaxxx,â&#x20AC;? that regurgitated crunk and screamo in atrocious fashion. Everyone hated it, but everyone reposted it, and now Brokencyde has a record deal. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Not a Fan . . . But the Kids Seem to Like It is a play on what most adults think of their processed, mashed-up music, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be alarmedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; no kids actually like Brokencyde. The kids instead like to complain about them, which they do in very funny and profane ways, usually involving members of the band suffering painful death. As for longevity? Brokencydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wikipedia page has been deleted eight times so far, citing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t indicate importance or signiďŹ cance.â&#x20AC;? What will stick around longer is Major Lazer, and their debut Guns Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Kill People . . . Lazers Do. Diplo and Switch (above) are the two producers behind M.I.A., and they team up for an album heavy on the tripletriddim dancehall beatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the reggae and hip-hop mix ďŹ ts as seamlessly as the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover art reďŹ&#x201A;ects both handdrawn Jamaican mix tapes and Miami booty-bass CDs. Guest spots from Santigold, Amanda Blank and a horde of Jamaican artists relatively unknown in the States bring us straight to Trenchtown via the Williamsburg L Train. Switch and Diplo know full well that cars need something to bump when the heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in summertime session, and even though the novelty â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mary Janeâ&#x20AC;? sounds like something Brokencyde might attempt when they get older and smoke more weed, Major Lazer is the easy winner this week. They play Friday, June 26, at the Grand Ballroom. 1290 Sutter St., San Francisco. 9pm. $28-$70. 800.745.3000. Gabe Meline

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard about this thing. This thing that lets you hold a phone up to a speaker and, pulling some ultra-insane and complicated algorithm out of the universe, analyzes the musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wave forms and compares it instantaneously against a universal database of every recorded note in history and thenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;poof !â&#x20AC;&#x201D;just like a TV dinner popping out of the microwave, tells you the title and artist of whatever crazy song happens to be playing at the time. And I thought, oh well, there goes the fun. There goes the mystery. There goes the fantastically aggravating experience of hearing the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most kickass song and screaming, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy shit, my life will never be the same,â&#x20AC;? and having the song stick in your head for days while you parade around like a fool asking everyone you know if they have the faintest idea who could possibly sing this totally awesome song, calling record stores and singing it over the phone, grasping for any information about The Song. Yes, there goes all that. Now we hold up our phone, it says the songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by Lady Gaga, and we sigh and move on. Lady Gaga belongs to everybody. Worse, Lady Gaga belongs to

the internet. No pop song belongs to us and us alone anymore. I had even heard about this creepy superthing that computes all the sound files of a recording and, establishing key, pitch, tempo, modulation and sonic appeal, tells record executives which track is most likely to be a hit songâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;most famously used to successfully select the first single from Norah Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; debut. Because of the programmed homogeny in reflecting certain variables of other established hit songs, and because well-paid record executives need no longer actually listen to or experience the culture they claim to create, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d swiftly established that thing as the Devil. But what I had not heard about was the other thing. The thing that instead of analyzing the actual original recorded songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wave forms analyzes your singing. You! You sing a song into your iPhone or computer, and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at least decently onkey somewhere in the range between Ethel Merman and Maria Callas, it tells you what song youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re singing! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an iPhone, but a friend who downloaded the app handed me his the other day. I immediately began singing a current Top 40 hit: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in love witâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; you baby, and I wancha to know / That Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hooked on yoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tryinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to be yours.â&#x20AC;? I tapped the phone. Three seconds later, there it was on the iPhone screen: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The-Dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; That Shit.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you exactly what I felt when this happened, except that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad my brain didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t short-circuit and leak slowly out of my ears. Was this really happening? Was my childhood vision of artificial intelligence, of being able to talk to the television, of being able to relate on a semi-emotional level with computersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was it all coming true? I decided to try something less current, and sang into the phone: â&#x20AC;&#x153;That you gimme no that you gimme no that you gimme no that you gimme no SOUUUUU-OUUUUUOOOUUL / I hear you CALLLLL-IINNN / Oh, baby, PLEEEEEEEEEEASE / Give a little respee-ect, to-ooo, to-ooo MEEEEEEEE!â&#x20AC;? I tapped the phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Erasureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Little Respect.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Incredible. I tried Tony Bennett. I tried Weezer. I tried Neutral Milk Hotel and John Prine and Keyshia Cole. And it knew. The thing always knew. Was it looking for just the melody or could we sing the guitar parts? I buuuunnhhbuuuunnnhhh-buuuhhnnnâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;ed my best Gibson Les Paul crunch into the phone. Sure enough: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deep Purpleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Smoke on the Water.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? I began to feel small. I began to feel like the thing was smarter, better, bigger than me. I needed a way to fool the thing. I had an idea. I sang something it was sure to know. I sang a Christmas song. Except I sang a pitch-perfect rendition of a Christmas song with the absolutely filthiest lyrics I could imagine. Take Lilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kim and Andrew Dice Clay and Luke Campbell and Penthouse Forum and Blowfly and ramp it up times 12, and add a dose of Christian Bale and Dick Cheney, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I sang into the phone. I tapped to see what it said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Andy Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Let it Snow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Ha! Midomi can be downloaded at $2.99 for the iPhone or simply used for free at www.midomi.com.

F>A:B>=6 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The whole point of being an artist is not to pay the bills,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says pianist Noam Lemish, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to create something beautiful.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

BX]VX]½cWT1[dTb. Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jazz scene tries to keep its head above water

By Cassandra Landry

C

he crowd is decidedly sparse on a Sunday evening in downtown Santa Rosa, where contemporary jazz band Planet B are swinging through their first set. The coffee grinders of Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Roma Roasters hum steadily in the background, and a handful of both young and old sit around the room, cradling cups of tea and coffee, bobbing their heads thoughtfully. A mostly empty tip jar sits next to stacks of CDs in front of the musicians. This is the meager new face of the jazz scene in Sonoma County. Planet B bassist Brett Palm takes a moment between sets to chat about the morose state of jazz appreciation in the community. Planet B is a representation of the veteran musicians who have been playing in the county for years, many working day jobs and some still attempting to play full-time. Palm, who owns a carpetcleaning company by day, admits that those trying to go full-time are â&#x20AC;&#x153;scratchinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; out.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like this is worst jazz scene Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever lived in,â&#x20AC;? he says, shaking his head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Caribbean was great, L.A. had all kinds of clubs going onâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much money, but at least there were places to play.â&#x20AC;? After a pause, he reconsiders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was one place Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived that was worse. Arcata.â&#x20AC;? The rise of â&#x20AC;&#x153;cocktail jazzâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;tuxedoed quartets playing mood music in the background for winetastings and weddingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

is becoming an easy fate for any North Bay musician. Of course, Sonoma County is better off than many places, as 27-year old jazz pianist Noam Lemish points out before taking the stage during the Healdsburg Jazz Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rising Stars concert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely lament the situation in the county,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I think in a way we should be grateful that we do live in wine country and that there are actual venues to play in.â&#x20AC;? Lemish, after releasing his debut CD Yes, And in October of last year, has no plans of falling into the winery-wedding trap anytime soon, but admits that economic circumstances may require him to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be someone or something, I just wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Lemish says, shrugging his shoulders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make sure to carve out my life in a way that if I decide that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to be able to make a living playing music in the way that I want to, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a different way to make a living through music.â&#x20AC;? After lamenting the loss of diehard jazz club Zebulonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lounge in Petaluma, Lemish mentions the Healdsburg Hotel, the Lodge in Sonoma and the Palette Art Cafe in Healdsburg as three major venues available for musicians to perform original works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the gigs are wineries or hotels, where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing a background kind of role,â&#x20AC;? he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music is becoming a luxury, really, for a restaurant or a club. They try to use it to bring people in, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a necessary part of their organization.â&#x20AC;? After moving from Israel in his teens and

attending Sonoma State University, Lemish immediately began making appearances all over the North Bay, working with some of the greats, including his teacher at Sonoma State University, the late Mel Graves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, I sometimes feel like I have to stay so busy just to pay the bills,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, the whole point of being an artist is not to pay the bills, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to create something beautiful. Sometimes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find the time to do the things that I feel that I need to do, like compose and practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also like to go to the beach. Or a movie,â&#x20AC;? he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love what I do, but the work never stops.â&#x20AC;? Back at Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Roma Roasters, Palm nods when the conversation circles back to the economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always in the way, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way around it,â&#x20AC;? he says, taking a sip of his coffee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But with the day job, at least that gives me a little leeway to experiment with a few things. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any money. This band isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making any money.â&#x20AC;? When compared to a starving artist, Palm laughs and adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m probably a little too comfortable. I should probably be living under a bridge or something.â&#x20AC;? Lemish sees the problem rather as a mixture of economic woes and a change in the community-wide attitude towards the arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The arts, musicians in general, are just not valued by society, and musicians are not getting paid what they deserve or what they need to sustain themselves,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But nurses arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting paid, teachers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting paid. But musicians . . . I mean, I would die for a salary like a teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? Lemish, who at one point a few years ago was playing four or five nights a week, says he now only appears eight or 10 times a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which for many other working musicians is still a lot to hope for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do the gigs and I teach, and I try to get on other projects. I have to do a lot of things I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally do,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to be in a situation where I could support myself and have time to practice and compose. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to allow me to continue to create new music.â&#x20AC;? What Lemish describes is, of course, the dream: endless amounts of time with no monetary constraints. For jazz musicians in particular, as Palm mentions, music is more of a personal affair. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;music for musicians,â&#x20AC;? he says. The goal is to have a conversation, not keep crowds dancing, which can be limiting when trying to find a reasonable gig. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take [Planet B] and try and do a wedding. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a waste of time,â&#x20AC;? Palm says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We want to hear â&#x20AC;&#x153;Feelingsâ&#x20AC;? . . . I mean, we could go out and do a bunch of standards, if a hotel wanted it, but what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for are places that want original music.â&#x20AC;? Sonoma Valley Jazz Society president Janice King takes a different approach; she says the society is trying to provide as many outlets as possible, still going strong in itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20th year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it happen,â&#x20AC;? King says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a decline, but all musicians are complaining. I really think it has to do with arts being the extra.â&#x20AC;? King seems confident in the survivability of the jazz community, and emphasizes how many supporters there still are. The crowd may have been sparse that Sunday evening at Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Roma Roasters, but faced with the rebirth of a jazz scene in Sonoma County, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we all pull together, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep it going,â&#x20AC;? assures King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do it for the love of jazz.â&#x20AC;?

One book leads to another when Mike Farrell hits the road t took Mike Farrell 31 days to drive himself from one side of this country to the other and back. At least now he knows that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to take a lot of gas. To promote his acclaimed memoir, Just Call Me Mike: A Journey to Actor and Activist, Farrell, probably best known in his role as B. J. Hunnicut from televisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s M*A*S*H, embarked on a book tour with just a single companion, a rented Prius affectionately nicknamed Mule. Navigating the never-ending book signings, radio interviews and perils of the road prompted a new book, Of Mule and Man (Akashic Books; $15.95), that has Farrell passionately speaking to some of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thorniest issues. Interwoven with Farrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developing affection for his Prius is a running commentary on electoral politics, social activism and American life, all amid the backdrop of the heated 2008 presidential race. Of Mule and Man lends page space to the organizations that co-sponsor his events. Among these organizations are Greenpeace, SEIU, chapters of the ACLU, and the Death Penalty Focus. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to ignore Farrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political slant, it is admirable that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose sight of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important in life: friends, family and community (and a Lakers win). What is most endearing about Farrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventure, though, is his humility and gratitude. His celebrity is no doubt a means to gather support for the causes he stands behind, but at every stop in every city he is stunned by the kind and inquisitive crowds from which he fields questions. Through this, his respect for community leaders, fellow activists and fans shines through the pages. Thankfully, his conversational writing style isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t weighed down by pessimistic rants. That isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to say heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exempt from them, though. Cruising through Texas, Georgia and the Carolinas, he muses about the difficulty of hybrid technology and scoffs at the conservativedominated airwaves of the red states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like this,â&#x20AC;? Mule grunts. Welcome to America. Mike Farrell reads from and discusses Of Mule and Man on Thursday, June 18, at Readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Books. 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. 7:30pm. Free. 707.939.1779.

Blackface drag comedian Shirley Q. Liquor comes to Guerneville ven those who are offended by blackface have to admit that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty ballsy to appear in public in blackface. Chuck Knipp is just that foolish. His performances have been picketed by protesters in New York, condemned by the mayor of Boston and cancelled coast to coast, from Hartford to Hollywood. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the subject of scorn from radio hosts, from writers at BET and from East Kentucky University, who have banned his act. Knipp, an overweight white man, appears in drag and blackface as Shirley Q. Liquor, an outdated stereotype of the black welfare mammyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;19 children, muumuu, curly wig, the whole bit. Thick with Ebonics and misspoken words, Shirley Q. Liquor routines operate like a running on-stage diary; her overweight friends and neighbors frequent the local fast food restaurants and cafeterias, watch soap operas, smoke menthols, drink Colt 45 and shop at Piggly Wiggly. On Sunday mornings, Liquor drives her 1972 El Dorado to the Mount Holy Olive Second Baptist Zion Church of God in Christ with her friend Shenelda Jenkins to hear sermons from the Rev. Cleotis Jefferson. Knipp seems to know how far is too far, stopping short at watermelon and fried chicken, and the 47year-old Kentucky native maintains that he created the character to actually celebrate black women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I have to explain to people what my show is about at its deepest levels,â&#x20AC;? he told Rolling Stone in 2007, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it kind of takes the fun out of it.â&#x20AC;? He often performs at gay pride events for â&#x20AC;&#x153;the homosexicalsâ&#x20AC;? (in Liquor parlance) and has been fiercely defended by RuPaul, who says that those offended by Shirley Q. Liquor are â&#x20AC;&#x153;idiots.â&#x20AC;? Politically, in the wake of Proposition 8 and the disconnect its passage underscored between the gay and black communities, an act like Shirley Q. Liquor probably isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helping that divide. Culturally, one has to admire Knippâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shameless bravado while recognizing his social folly, and financially, Knipp is doing all right, his notoriety helping him get hired by famous actresses and country musicians for private events. But the bottom-line question ignored in all the controversy is if Shirley Q. Liquor is at all funny, an adjective easily interchangeable with â&#x20AC;&#x153;outrageousâ&#x20AC;? when dealing with drag acts. Decide for yourself when Shirley Q. Liquor appears on Saturday, June 20, at the Russian River Resort. 16390 Fourth St., Guerneville. 9pm. $10. 707.869.0691. Gabe Meline
