3DCA03>=C270 Lindsay Pyle interviewed me on the Dutra Asphalt Plant proposal (the piece was presented to me not as a personal commentary but as an article). I am shocked that the Bohemian printed the column (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tit for Tat,â&#x20AC;? Open Mic, June 17), since it is inaccurate. Dutra does not have the contract for the Highway 101 widening project as far as public knowledge goes. Ms. Pyle implies that since Petaluma caused the traffic jam, we should breathe toxic air and degrade our park as punishment. Dutra is a newcomer to the county; they bought the Petaluma Quarry in 1995. They sold it eight years later in December 2003, operated as a tenant on the sold property for one year, and then operated a temporary asphalt plant for two years (from 2005 to 2007) at a different location across Petaluma Boulevard. During their relatively few years in Petaluma, they were issued multiple air-quality violations (NOVs) by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. They have operated without a permit, and were shut down for failure to use Best

Available Control Technology. Their EIR states that they have gone as far as to engage in grading work at Haystack Landing without a permit, damaging the wetlands. Since they do not currently operate an asphalt plant, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mystery how they can claim to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;relocatingâ&#x20AC;? their defunct and out-of-compliance plant to Haystack Landing. Their spokesperson, Amy Dutra, was asked questions about the Dutra Groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record in Petaluma in front of county supervisors at the formal hearing on Feb. 3. On June 9, at the next formal hearing, Supervisor Zane publicly chastised her for less-than-complete answers that failed to mention the formal NOVs issued on their operation. Is this the kind of local company Ms. Pyle wants us to embrace for asphalt production? Yes, asphalt will be laid to widen 101, and the company with the lowest bid and best track record will get the job. Which company that is remains to be seen. What can now be seen is Dutraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local and national record. And it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretty.

When Lindsay Pyle was first assigned the Dutra piece, it was indeed intended to be an article, not an Open Mic commentary. Due to deadline constraints and other unforeseen events, it changed to Open Mic status.

4A42C8>=B>5H>A4 Jessica Lussenhopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feature article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside the Pornocopiaâ&#x20AC;? (June 24) leaves yet unanswered the basic question of what accounts for the persistent and ongoing appeal of porn for this particular generation of teens. The perennial affinity of the young for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;forbidden fruitâ&#x20AC;? cannot suffice to address the matter, because the latter proposition gets tired once the novelty fades. When we were kids (sometime around when the polar ice cap was forming), porn was considered ancillary support for â&#x20AC;&#x153;dirty old men.â&#x20AC;? Such assistance was hardly necessary, though, for an adolescent. Good God, at that age it was all I could do to keep it down . . .

Our post-oil future neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as grim and apocalyptic as portrayed in Alastair Blandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transition article (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cheer Up, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Going to Get Worse,â&#x20AC;? June 17). Consider the late 19th century. Railways criss-crossed the nation. Seaports were full of ships. The trains and ships burned coal to generate steam power. Coal is a foul pollutant, and should be banned from use in power plants and heating. Yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abundant, and could fuel our post-oil transportation network. A train trip from San Francisco to New York took about four days in 1895. A steamship took about the same time to travel from New York to Europe.

CWTEP[[ThATeXbX^]TS

Napa as we know itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and hoped to preserve itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is quickly changing with development By P. Joseph Potocki

=

apa County is having growing painsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;billions of dollarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of them. The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first county to preserve vast stretches of contiguous farmland, Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future is shaping up to look immensely more urban, developed and congested than its celebrated and faux-idyllic recent past. Today, a dozen or more major projects are either drawn up, under construction or have recently been completed in the county. Projects on tap for the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlands include an eco-village, uncounted sprawling mountain estates and a 100-unit housing development. Expected to rise from the valley floor are thousands of homes, hotel

rooms and commercial spaces. At least one project will encroach upon 83 acres of sanctified Napa County Agricultural Preserve vineyards. Each of these developments promises either to enhance or threatens to destroy the well-cultivated character and natural beauty of Napa Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;depending upon whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voicing an opinion. With development comes shifting alliances and changing demographics. Ginny Simms is a long-standing member of the tempered-development group Get a Grip on Growth. She sums up Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is really at stake here is whether or not thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a political majority, pro or con, for development in the city and in the county.â&#x20AC;?

One question begging to be answered is whether these development projects will solve existing problems or simply create new ones. Unlike other regional jurisdictions, Napa County fancies itself the model of visionary rural preservation. Its preservation has roots in a contentious debate that goes back 42 years. During the Summer of Love in San Francisco, Napa Valley was a sparsely populated boondocks lolling in existential discontent. A report had forecast Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population eclipsing 200,000 people by the year 2000. Its last census counted less than one-third that number, and this prediction scared the hell out of Napans. Spurred to action by sprawling developments leveling orchards from %.

Santa Clara north to Novato (as well as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest seed farm turned into something called Rohnert Park), a Napa coalition formed to protect their valley. Winery and vineyard owners led the effort with the tacit support of county assessor George Abate, who recognized that massive development brings massive public costs. The preservationists urged Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Supervisors to act, incurring the wrath of local landowners who claimed rights to subdivide holdings, particularly to build homes for their children. Pro-development farmers and landowners were joined by powerful money interests, including Inglenook heir and banker John Daniel, along with would-be developers and local real estate agents. In 1968, the Napa County Board of Supervisors voted 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 to establish Napa Valley as the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very first agricultural preserve (AP), thus handing the preservationists a hard-fought victory. While the size and scope of the acreage has changed over time, Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AP today protects roughly 38,000 acres. Minimum lot sizes are 40 acres, and only one house can be placed on each lot. Judging from voter-approved measures strengthening the protected designation over the years, the AP is now near universally supported by Napans. Adding together the AP, the Land Trust of Napa County and various government-administered lands, close to 140,000 Napa County acres currently enjoy some form of legal protection. Even so, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty left to develop. And there are plenty of reasons to do so. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that Napa County is a pricey place to live. Masters of every industry, high-tech nouveau riche and lucky spermers alike all find Napa irresistible. Building a county-designated-minimum 160-acre estate high in the hills, owning oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own vineyard and â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultâ&#x20AC;? wine labelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effete societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate cache. Referencing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Napa Cabernet is pure cotillion gold. But with hyperexpensive wines paired with Ăźber-rich masters, all gobbling and pumping up real estate prices, just where do Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;regularâ&#x20AC;? people fit in? For the most part, of course, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Napa is the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 tourist destination, behind only San Francisco. The latest wave of upscale hotels and resorts, restaurants, retail shops and tasting rooms will doubtless create hundreds of new jobs. Service sector positions, however, do not provide adequate wages to compete for local market-rate housing. Thus comes the classwar rub. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) mandates housing numbers for each Bay Area county. The aim is to fairly spread demographics and population throughout the Bay Area by providing homes not just for those who can afford them, but for those who most need them, too. Because Napa must adhere to ABAG protocols, incremental population growth is inevitable. But before any â&#x20AC;&#x153;low costâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;affordableâ&#x20AC;? housing can be built it must run the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal, bureaucratic and public gauntlets. With all the massive development taking place outside the Ag Preserve itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to overlook smaller, but significant challenges to the AP itself. Already, at least

one successful waiver has gone forward. Its legal cudgel, the 1974 Subdivision Map Act, is expected to be increasingly deployed in efforts aimed at circumventing stringent AP restrictions. Recently, vineyard owner Will Nord used the act to win a ruling allowing him to subdivide his 83-acre vineyard near Yountville, and to build six new homes there. Two weeks ago, a proposal to allow deedrestricted â&#x20AC;&#x153;affordableâ&#x20AC;? second homes on AP properties was unanimously rejected by the supes. St. Helenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to annex 101 AP acres for use as a wastewater treatment spray field was likewise turned back, but with each chink in the armor, more money and more developers are bound to join the fray. Like Ginny Simms says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Napa County has been in the sights of developers for a very long time.â&#x20AC;? Expect more sightings. Here are just a few: Coming Down the Pipe Project: Napa Pipe Where: Just outside the southeast city limits Cost: $1 billion Opposed by: Get a Grip on Growth Current status: Developer is preparing a draft environmental impact report, expected to be released this August or September. Meanwhile, the county is holding monthly public meetings. Napa Pipe is a 152-acre former industrial site located below the southeast border of the city of Napa. The most expensive project the county has ever considered, Napa Pipe could go a long way to satisfy state and regional demands that the county provide its fair share of housingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;affordable, yes, but mostly not. From a preservationistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, greenlighting Napa Pipe could take pressure off calls for housing development in the Ag Preserve. San Francisco developer Keith Rogal hopes to build more than 200 housing units annually over a 10-year stretch. Napa Pipe has met stiff resistance from individuals and local groups like Get a Grip on Growth, who tick off a laundry list of project negatives. Rogal has whittled his project down from 3,200 units to its present 2,580 townhouse affair, replete with four- to seven-story buildings, park acreage, a hotel, restaurants, office and light industrial spaces. Downtown Napa Now! New projects: Avia Hotel, Riverfront, Napa Square, Westin Veresa, River Promenade, Oxbow Public Market and the Gasser Foundation Transitional Homeless Housing Combined costs: About $280 million Current status: Gasserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a go; all else is open or will soon be Napans know precisely how previous attempts to raise the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status have failed miserably, COPIA being their most recent painful reminder. Recently, an influx of development capital has provoked a new, albeit cautious, optimism. The $100 million, 180-room Westin Veresa opened on McKinstry Street last August. On July 1, the five-story Avia hotel opens it doors, touted as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a posh urban oasis.â&#x20AC;? This 141-room First Street hostelry offers upscale accommodations from $200 to $400 a night and a first floor primed to showcase retail and restaurants (yet to be leased). Napa Squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Spanish-themed 68,000-square feet of office and restaurant space is already 70 percent leased to what developers promise is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bevy of financial companies and two high-end restaurants.â&#x20AC;? At full occupancy, CDI Development partner Larry Nelson expects Napa Square businesses to employ 150 people.

Michael DeSimoniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverfront, on the other hand, has caused some concern. Its 70,000 square feet of new commercial space stands virtually empty. Fifty luxury condominiums with price tags topping $1.5 million fill out the Riverfront project. DeSimoni attributes vacancies to being picky about the quality of his targeted tenants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to yield to junkies,â&#x20AC;? DeSimoni is quoted saying. For now, Riverfrontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole lessee is Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Putting Off the Ritz Projects: Ritz-Carlton and the St. Regis What: Five-star hotel / resorts Where: East and south ends of the city of Napa, respectively Luxury units: About 600 Cost: Ritz-Carlton, $270 million; St. Regis, unknown at press time Current Status: Financially challenged and in the works Both the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Regis hotels would greatly enhance Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city image as a world-class destination, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be anything but boutique in size and scope. About a half-billion dollars is expected to be poured into the two separate ventures. In addition to unsurpassed overnight accommodations, expect luxury condos, retail, conference and banquet facilities, spas, underground parking, acres of vineyards and a 25,000-case winery. The St. Regis marks the second attempt to build a resort on the Stanly Ranch Carneros property. A proposed 600-home, 300-room resort, retail and golf course monstrosity was withdrawn in the late 1990s after the city threatened to put it up to the citizens for a vote. The latest slimmed-down 245-unit St. Regis is expected to fare better. The Ritz, meanwhile, has run into financial snags due to the recession. Its Florida-based developer hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pulled the plug, but the project appears in limbo. Out Yonder Projects: Angwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eco-Village, Villa Berryessa, Lake Luciano and various and assorted 160-acre mountain estates Combined costs: $1 billion and counting Lake Lucianoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf course and housing development suffered an early June blow from the board of supes, but challenges are expected. Pope Canyonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Villa Berryessa is tentatively approved, with 100 homes slated to be built on 97 acres across the hills from Napa Valley. Aside from Napa Pipe, no development proposal has met such blustery opposition as Pacific Union Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 380-unit Eco-Village in Angwin. Even Robert Redford has joined efforts to quash it. A recent decision by the supervisors has breathed new life into the project, and, moreover, it may benefit should former Napa police chief Dan Monez gain a seat on the board in the next election cycle. Ghisletta Project: 1,000 single family homes on 142 acres Where: Off Foster Road, west of, but expected to be incorporated into, the city of Napa Cost: Half a billion dollars at a $500,000 perhome average Opposed by: Save Foster Road Current status: Wending through the public process A City of Napa annexation application was approved two years ago, but was later withdrawn when a tax agreement could not be reached between the city and the county. The project is presently on hold.

y now, everyone has heard the tale. The drama is over, Bruce is OK, my insurance paid for the limo, the paparazzi circus that invaded Sonoma has moved on, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no longer looking at extensive jail time. But it was touch-and-go there at first. Nearly killing a celebrity is bad on a number of levels. First, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re immediately guilty and everyone hates you, and second, Bruce Willis is not someone you want pissed off at you. The idea was hatched about a month before the Sonoma Valley Film Festival this April. I wanted my high school art class to study environmental artists: Andy Goldworthy, Christo, Keith Haring, etc. I had students learn about each artist and produce reports on their favorite. I figured a great final would be the creation of a 10foot-high â&#x20AC;&#x153;SONOMAWOODâ&#x20AC;? sign to be erected in the hills behind the plaza during the film festival. It would be a rip-off of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;HOLLYWOODâ&#x20AC;? sign, welcoming all to our little town. Ridiculous, educational, funâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;my students loved it. After two weeks of sawing and hammering, we had the letters finished. There were three spots in the hills where I wanted to put the letters. One was on county land, one in the cemetery and one in public open-space. I had begun the process of getting permission a month previous, but even with the backing of a local supervisor, the mayor and most of the city council, no approval had been granted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just put them upâ&#x20AC;? was the advice I received from a number of people, but I figured that since it was a school project, I should keep it legal. My next idea was to put the sign on the grass in front of the Sonoma Community Center, but the executive director told me that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fair to other artists to simply put up my piece when others had to go through an application-approval process. We were short on time. A week before the festival, I was sitting in the plaza and looked over at the Sebastiani Theatre and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perfect.â&#x20AC;? The Sebastiani is the main movie house for the film festival and the owner is a friend of mine. He was game after we came up with a way to secure the letters. We waited until Wednesday to put

the letters up, because I wanted it to be a surprise. It took six of us three hours to haul them up the side fire escape and secure them, but when we were done, we knew we had created something good. The only problem was the split in the front façade on the roof. The building has two vertical towers, so the letters had to be split, â&#x20AC;&#x153;SONOâ&#x20AC;? on the left, â&#x20AC;&#x153;MAâ&#x20AC;? in the middle, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;WOODâ&#x20AC;? on the right. It looked great from below but the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? was a little angled because the base was blocked by a pipe. I solved the problem with a length of rope.

Nearly killing a celebrity is bad on a number of levels. First, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re immediately guilty and everyone hates you, and second, Bruce Willis is not someone you want pissed off at you.

It looked great towering over the Sebastiani Theatre. In the evening, the moving spotlights hit the letters from left to right. It was right above where the VIPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were dropped off for special events. Bruce Willis was in town for a superstar tour of Sonoma. I had just interviewed him during the VIP dinner at Estate, where I kept hounding him with quick comparisons: Suits or jeans? Foie gras or peanut butter? New York or LA? Pot or booze?

I trailed Bruce around, but to be honest, I was as interested in the free booze and food as I was in Bruce. But he seemed to be entertained by my line of questioning. That became important later, as it kept him from being guillotined. After the VIP party, I followed Bruce and his limo to the Sebastiani. Half drunk on free beer, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfied with the results of my â&#x20AC;&#x153;interview.â&#x20AC;? The wind was howling. When I approached the theater, I realized there was no easy way to get to Bruce. A red carpet was rolled out and an area sectioned off so Bruce could go from limo to destination with little interference. The spotlights were illuminating the sign perfectly. I parked and headed into the melee. It looked like a scene from the Oscars, as paparazzi f lashed their cameras and yelled to get Bruceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention. The limo was out front; Bruce got out first, opening the door for his new wife. I yelled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakers or Nets?â&#x20AC;? He stopped, turned around with his famous smirk and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celtics, baby.â&#x20AC;? He waved to the crowd as I heard a loud crack from above. Everyone looked up as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? fell forward, off the roof, its point aiming right at Bruce. He looked up just as the tip sliced through the cartilage of his nose. The letter hit the ground and fell onto his limo, which his wife had luckily crowded back into. Bruce grabbed his nose. Blood shot through his fingers. Everyone converged. I was worried that a second letter would release so I scaled the fire escape to check. Someone saw me from below, illuminated by the spotlight (â&#x20AC;&#x153;California Teacher Tries to Kill Bruce Willisâ&#x20AC;?), and figured I had intentionally released the letter. The police raced to the roof and had me in cuffs before I knew what was going on. I kept repeating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I saved his life, if he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped to answer my question . . .â&#x20AC;? It was true, but nobody would listen. Initial reports in the tabloids were overblown. The headline â&#x20AC;&#x153;John Moss in Love Triangle with Demi and Ashtonâ&#x20AC;? was just ridiculous. But Bruce still has not contacted me. His lawyers sent me a contract to sign explaining that I could not talk to any media about the incident; also, I am not allowed to benefit financially from the incident or talk about Mr. Willisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; injury to anyone. I can only assume that he, like me, wants to put the whole thing behind him. But when he calls, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ask him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey Bruce, Moss or Bobbit?â&#x20AC;? John Moss wrote the strange and savage tale of a field trip gone south for our Jan. 9, 2009 issue.

llen Augustine has helped spread over 35,000 pies around the country, and they are all very, very flatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in fact, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re no more than postcards depicting pie charts of U.S. budget spending. On a recent visit with Augustine, I ask what she hopes to achieve with her postcards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;See this?â&#x20AC;? she says, tapping her finger on the red-and-green pie chart image. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since the Vietnam War, almost half our discretionary spending has gone to the military, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bankrupting us.â&#x20AC;? Augustine reaches into her bag and hands me a postcard with the heading â&#x20AC;&#x153;U.S. Budget Prioritiesâ&#x20AC;? and a spending chart that makes me wince. Nothing like a picture to tell the truth. Under the chart is a web address that resonates with my reaction to the graphic: NotMyPriorities.org. I flip the card over. It is pre-addressed to the White House, with the following text: Dear President Obama: We need to defend ourselves, but this kind of spending on the military is bankrupting our country financially and morally. Following this text is a fill-in-the-blanks box with three blank spaces under the heading â&#x20AC;&#x153;My funding priorities.â&#x20AC;? Wow. No one has ever asked me what I would spend that money on. Augustineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postcards have been so eagerly received that households have hosted â&#x20AC;&#x153;pie partiesâ&#x20AC;? at which Augustine and campaign partner Barry Hermanson explain how a simple postcard can help puncture bloated military spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The beauty of this campaign,â&#x20AC;? says Augustine, reading my mind, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is how people can state their priorities simply. Millions of these cards will go to the White Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then the next phase will be also thousands sent to individual representatives and senators, who vote on the budget.â&#x20AC;? Augustineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gripe is the fact that there is never significant opposition to military funding from elected officials. Last year, only 39 of the 435 members of the House of Representatives and only eight of 100 Senators voted against increasing the Pentagon budget.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ridiculous how many big fights there are in Congress over allocating spending for green jobs and education amounting to a few billion,â&#x20AC;? says Augustine, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when military appropriations close to $700 billion pass with very little debate or discussion.â&#x20AC;? Part of the Not My Priorities campaign aims to educate the public about military overspending, including studies which show that investment in green industries results in 30 to 100 percent more jobs per dollar than investment in military industries. The campaign presumes a shared value among people who would rather support their families working in green jobs than in military jobs. One campaign goal is to make Americans aware that this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending on military is way out of proportion with that of the rest of the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As insular Americans, we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware that we spend as much on military as the rest of the world spends combined,â&#x20AC;? said Augustine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And much of it is wasteful spending. We have between 750 and a thousand military bases in over a hundred countries in the world, many of which do not want or need us there any more. President Obama and the Secretary of Defense have made a list of several [obsolete] hightech weapons systems theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to eliminate which would reduce the budget by billions.â&#x20AC;? Anger about bloated military spending is nonpartisan. In these budgetconscious times, the organizers of Not My Priorities claim that their U.S. budget pie chart has outraged people on both sides of the political fence and even apolitical people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We the people need to take action for the common good,â&#x20AC;? affirms Augustine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we need to do it for ourselves and for people we will never meet, who will never thank us or give us a birthday present.â&#x20AC;?

Augustineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gripe is the fact that there is never significant opposition to military funding from elected officials.

To acquire postcards, make a contribution or to host a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pie partyâ&#x20AC;? at home, email Augustine at ellenaugustine@earthlink.net or Barry Hermanson at barry@barryhermanson.org.

=>B4:=>FB Master sommelier Geoff Kruth is one of 170 or so experts in the world.

=^cH^da0eTaPVTFX]TB]^Q Master sommelier Geoff Kruth busts open the snooty stereotype By Cassandra Landry

>

n a recent Sunday morning in downtown Petaluma, 34-year old Geoff Kruth sits sipping a coffee and looking relaxed in a simple blue T-shirt and jeans. He has a boyishly handsome look to him, not at all what one might expect from one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most highly certified wine experts, and speaks with an easy cadence. He seems content, chatting about his recent move from Windsor and his two-year-old daughter, but as soon as the conversation drifts to his passion for wine, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick to assure that his life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always centered around Rieslings and Zinfandels.

After graduating high school in Orange County, Kruth entered Sonoma State University with the intention of completing a degree in music (classical guitar, which he says he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touched in 15 years). Kruth switched gears midway through and pursued a degree in computer science instead, and smack in the middle of the dotcom boom, he did what many young techies did at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I moved to Silicon Valley and lived in Menlo Park and worked in the tech business for about five years,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a good career, but I spent my spare time and money on wine. Wine was my hobby in college, and that was what I did for fun.â&#x20AC;? In the back of his mind, however, Kruth had begun to toy with the idea of opening a wine bar

or a restaurant. While working on a consulting project in Connecticut, he drove to New York to have dinner at Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ecole, the restaurant of the French Culinary Institute. By the time the dessert courses arrived, Kruth had found a new gig. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided I was going to quit my career and go to culinary school,â&#x20AC;? he says, with a slight shrug and a grin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody thought I was completely insane.â&#x20AC;? Shortly after enrolling in the French Culinary Institute, he began working for the New York restaurant Balthazar for free, moving boxes in the cellar while concentrating on learning the most he could about the wine industry and hitting the books for his sommelier certification. The dream of owning a restaurant faded as Kruth &, THE BOHEMIAN

realized his passion was in wine education instead, and he registered for the first level of the Court of Master Sommeliers classes. Four years passed, and Kruth found himself back in Sonoma County. Having just passed the advanced level exam and studying for the masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, he landed his current position as wine director of the Farmhouse Inn and Restaurant in Forestville (taking over for Jim Ralston, current wine director at Cyrus restaurant in Healdsburg). As one might have guessed, this guitaristturned-techie-turned-sommelier passed his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exam. Since its birth in 1969 in England, just more than 170 people in the world have passed this grueling, meticulous tastebud test. Kruth is now one of a small community of extremely dedicated wine connoisseurs who have been able to clear the three-part exam held once a year during which potential masters are grilled for three days straight on service, tasting and theory, in front of a panel. Kruth recalls being given 25 minutes to identify six different wines accuratelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;three reds, three whites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vintage, varietal, region, su-region,â&#x20AC;? he recites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just know what they are, you have to explain what they are, and why they are what they are, and how you know thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it is. The expectations are a lot higher.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an awful lot to put oneself through, Kruth admits, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly why a deep-seated passion for wine and a certain intensity and focus is required. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m personally interested in is the connection to farming and culture and life,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wine can be a lot of different things, like a luxury lifestyle beverage, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really interested in that.â&#x20AC;? He continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously part of the service business. You need to be of service to people who are interested in wine from that perspective, because that can be a lot of your business.â&#x20AC;? Watching a sommelier in action can feel a bit like watching a magic show or a palm reader, but the way Kruth lays it out makes it sound more like a math equation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually, when I pick up a glass of wineâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;with this, he picks up his coffee cup, swirls it, and smells it like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a glass of red waiting to be peggedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll smell it and know what it is. The grape, country, region and a reasonable guess on the vintage. But if I were sitting in a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exam, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to do that at all. You want to take your judgments out,â&#x20AC;? Kruth explains, adding that his approach to wine identification is highly analytical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are specific things I look for in the color, the aromas, the flavors or the structural elements of the wine. I basically try to get an extremely objective analysis, and that should tell you more or less what the wine is.â&#x20AC;? Such arduous examination might take a half an hour for an average wine drinker to attempt before breaking down and asking for the answer or Googling the damn thing, but according to Kruth, it all comes down to practice.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you really understand all the classic wines of the world and how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re built upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;their alcohol, their acid, their tannin levels, the kinds of fruit flavors in the wines, the kinds of secondary flavors, the type of earthiness . . . once you paint that whole picture, most of time it points right to a wine,â&#x20AC;? he says. Though it may seem so to an outsider, Kruth insists that he is not a â&#x20AC;&#x153;supertaster,â&#x20AC;? one of the few people who walk through life with an unusually sensitive palate, discerning every ingredient in a dish or a wine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some magical gift that only a small number of people have,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training and commitment and having a good structure and good teachers.â&#x20AC;? Kruth humbly acknowledges the barrage of clichĂŠs related to his work. All training and passion aside, say the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;sommelierâ&#x20AC;? to a group of average people and reactions will most likely range from eye-rolling to looks of disgust. Why is it that even in wine country, â&#x20AC;&#x153;sommelierâ&#x20AC;? conjures images of a pretentious suit and tie, condescension and perhaps an unhealthy obsession with a beverage? Kruth insists that the perception of sommeliers is changing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The stereotype that needs to be put to rest is the snobby sommelier looking down on other people,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dying quick. I think things have really changed for the better.â&#x20AC;? Kruth has finished his coffee and sits quietly for a minute, capturing all the last bits of lattĂŠ foam on his finger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, sommeliers are there to be used,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like people are sometimes afraid to engage a sommelier because they feel like it looks like they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know enough, but if they realize the level of knowledge and passion that sommeliers have to have, and utilize that more, I think they would have a better experience.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about moving past feeling looked down on, Kruth emphasizes, and seeing that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sommelierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obligation to be there for the customer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about your ego as a sommelier, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about showing someone what you know. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything to prove,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So you have to listen more than you talk and understand what someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest is. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really understanding the customer, figuring out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make them happy.â&#x20AC;? For Kruth, being a master sommelier is not all wine pouring and educating the masses on oaky undertones. In addition to acting as wine director for the Farmhouse, he is the director of the Guild of Sommeliers, an instructor for the Professional Culinary Institute, an instructor for the Court of Master Sommeliers and the wine consultant for the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival in Maui. He insists he has no life, but acknowledges that every business has its helping of grunt work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like chefs,â&#x20AC;? he says, smiling and shaking his head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone wants to be a celebrity chef, but no one wants to peel onions for 10 hours.â&#x20AC;?

40C8=6F4;; here is a growing consciousness,â&#x20AC;? says Steve Costa of Point Reyes Books, â&#x20AC;&#x153;of how good quality food that is sustainably grown and produced is integral to human life, community and world.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;T

In this same spirit, Point Reyes Books has partnered with Marin Organic to create the Food for Thought author series. Through October, native Marin authors will share their work at Point Reyes Books or at Tobyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feed Barn across the street. All are welcome to attend the free readings. The Food for Thought series offers perspectives that help put food into perspective, asking the important question of what it means to live and eat well. On Saturday, July 11, Nicolette Hahn Niman (above), author of Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms, will speak to the problems of industrialized livestock production and how to move beyond depending on these farms. On Saturday, July 25, Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farmers in the Age of Agribusiness author Lisa Hamilton focuses on the stories of agriculture farmers. On Saturday, Sept. 5, David Mas Masumoto speaks on his Wisdom of the Last Farmer: Harvesting Legacy from the Land, Epitaph for a Peach and others, bringing to the discussion organic farming techniques. Sunday, Oct. 4, brings Edward Espe Brown, accomplished chef, Zen Buddhist priest, and author of The Complete Tassajara Cookbook: Recipes, Techniques and ReďŹ&#x201A;ections from the Famed Zen Kitchen.

@D6?9 Âś;Âś @=6A

A>14AC7D=C4A F8=4AH s playgrounds of the rich, famous and notable go, quiet Sonoma Valley seems nearly in retirement, full of names ripped from yesteryearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlines and long since senesced into the landscape. Take Arnold Drive. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arnold? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hapâ&#x20AC;? Arnold, the ďŹ ve star general who, along with other WW II brass, was a guest of former art model and famed sugar heiress Alma de Bretteville Spreckels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Almaâ&#x20AC;? greeted guests with a martini in one hand and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keen on the bumpy, dusty road leading to her 3,000-acre Sobre Vista ranch. So she had a seven-mile stretch paved and named for the general.

A

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the type of trivia learned during a tour of this 40-acre estate carved out of Spreckelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old ranch in the early 1970s, hidden away off Arnold Drive. Here Robert Hunter, a retired banker with a fondness for the wines of Epernay, has been quietly producing mĂŠthode champenoise sparkling. The small staff offer a limited schedule of tasting and tours of gardens designed by 20th-century landscape architect Thomas Church. Our guide breathlessly related a century of history, and then introduced the unusual ďŹ&#x201A;ora planted to green up Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design. An unassuming shrub turns out to be rare, 200-year-old dwarf sequoia, and if the landscaping seems familiar, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Church was the father of the now ubiquitous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Californiaâ&#x20AC;? landscaping style. At the patio tasting, Mr. Hunter himself, at better than 80, is an energetic host, graciously passing the dump bucket, collecting glasses, and engaging us on the ďŹ ner points of Champagne. The star is the 2000 Brut de Noirs Sonoma Valley sparkling wine ($45). Is that getting on a bit for a white wine? Not so for those with a structure that helps them improve with age; with Champagne, the practice is called extended tirage. Bready, ďŹ&#x201A;akey pastry aromas introduce but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dominate delicate citrus and pear ďŹ&#x201A;avor; the lean, clean center of acidity and ďŹ ne bubbles are refreshing, not scoury. Surpriseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ďŹ ne sparkling wine hails from the warm â&#x20AC;&#x153;banana beltâ&#x20AC;? of Sonoma Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the phenomenon of â&#x20AC;&#x153;tasting room palateâ&#x20AC;? talking. I found the previous vintage of this bubbly quite by random a few holiday seasons ago, and to my memory it still bests anything since. The full-bodied and languid 2007 Chardonnay ($35) perked up a little with coconut and Meyer lemon notes. A comparison tasting found the 2005 Pinot Noir ($45) imbued with brown spice and cranberry-grape jelly fruit; limpid but not heavy or hot, it ďŹ nishes with a brief, satisfying astringency, while the 2003 Pinot Noir ($50) was lithe, silky and aromatic of smoky strawberry jam. Plus, an olallieberry scented, juicy and polished Cabernet Sauvignon ($50) with soft tannin in the background. Cab next to Pinot? Here in Glen Ellen, yes. Missing was the requisite mĂŠthode champenoise demonstration, but for resident tourists or visiting relatives with a taste for the intimate rather than glitz, here is a hidden gem on the wine road less traveled. Robert Hunter Winery, 15655 Arnold Drive, Sonoma. Tours of private estate by appointment only, $25. 707.996.3056.

o paraphrase Rick James via Dave Chappelle, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Internetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hell of a drug.â&#x20AC;? Like Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; storied cocaine habit, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s addictive and alluring, its benefits debatable. I speak as someone intimately experienced with addictive drugs: two years ago, I quit smoking. To this day, I find myself smoking in dreams, and occasionally sneak them from friends at the bar. The rest of the time, the internet serves as a proxy.

Addictive personalities often replace one addiction with another. My new worst friend is the social web, the endless stream of information constantly streaming down Sen. Ted Stevensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; infamous â&#x20AC;&#x153;series of tubes.â&#x20AC;? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short list of internet services that I use and check with half-hourly frequency: email, Facebook, Tumblr, Delicious, Evernote, Twitter, Remember the Milk, Google Reader (tracking some 180 RSS feeds) and Yahoo News. I back up longer articles using Instapaper to read on the bus; at the office, I work with two web

browsers open at all times, 10 individual tabs loaded in each, spread over two monitors. On the commute home, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m checking text messages via my internet-enabled phone and reading archived blog posts on my iPod. At times, it seems like a type of digital schizophrenia, or if nothing else, a hell of a drug. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m what pencil-necked social media experts and Web 2.0 carpetbaggers would call a â&#x20AC;&#x153;power user.â&#x20AC;? I dine on a constant, movable feast of information. Scolds might suggest that this is a symptom of a larger internet addiction, but '+ THE BOHEMIAN

when your day job involves managing web content and your night jobs are web design and freelance writing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to avoid spending 12 to 14 hours a day online. My habits are far from unusual; as we sit in offices for eight hours at a desktop, only to leave the office with iPhones, Blackberries and Kindles in tow, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that the moment futurists have predicted is upon us: the internet has become pervasive, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only going to become more so in the years to come. With so much information streaming at once, most of it with all the panache of a poorly organized corporate database vying for attention with hard news and gossip masquerading as political analysis, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little room for critical engagement; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barely enough time for basic reading comprehension. I could read 50 news articles in a day about the Middle East and return with no deeper understanding of what happened in Iraq on that given day. My mind has become a decontextualized database of ephemeral facts, equipped with only the most rudimentary of search functions. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not exactly cheering to realize that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not alone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a phenomenon that author John Lorinc bemoaned in his 2007 essay â&#x20AC;&#x153;Driven to Distractionâ&#x20AC;? for the Canadian magazine Walrus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have created a technological miasma that inundates us with an inexhaustible supply of electronic distractions,â&#x20AC;? Lorinc wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The deluge of multi-channel signals has produced an array of concentration-related problems, including lost productivity, cognitive overload and a wearying diminishment in our ability to retain the very information we consume with such voraciousness. It may be that our hyperconnected world has quite simply made it difficult for us to think.â&#x20AC;? Lorincâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far from alone in his alarm. In the past year, a cottage industry has sprouted up around the warning that Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the internet at largeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is making us stupid. The most controversial of the bunch has been Nicholas Carrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover story for the August 2008 issue of the Atlantic. Citing the work of Maryanne Wolf, a developmental psychologist at Tufts University, who warns that online readers become â&#x20AC;&#x153;mere decoders of information,â&#x20AC;? Carr editorializes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;our ability to interpret text, to make the rich mental connections that form when we read deeply and without distraction, remains disengaged.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dubious of the argument that Google is making us stupid, but Carr makes a key observation in the piece, writing â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep reading . . . is indistinguishable from deep thinking.â&#x20AC;?

eeling disenfranchised from that sort of deeper engagement, my resolution for this year was to step away from the streamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least for an hour a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and return to trusty old print. I decided to read more booksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not

on a Kindle or the e-Book reader on an iPhone, where the temptation for distraction via a rudimentary browser is a mere hand gesture awayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but in bound, linear, paper form. And you know what? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a revelation. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve rediscovered an ethic of attentiveness, an intellectual silence and focus, that I lost in recent years as I jumped from one link to another, juggling countless browser tabs at all times. My process of reading had ceased being linear and had morphed into a cacophony of facts, data, opinions and animated Flash video. Since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve rediscovered slow reading, I find myself thinking more clearly, perusing linear paths of critical engagement with topics. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relieving contrast to the multitasked intellectual inattentiveness that the online world encourages and demands.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It may be that our hyper-connected world has quite simply made it difficult for us to think.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

One of the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been rereading are the short stories of Jorge Luis Borges, an author many consider a prophet of the discursive, hypertext era of the internet. Borgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;elliptical, playful and rife with allusionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is stunningly contemporary in its metanarrative and referential play. Yet even a writer as prescient as Borges demands the engagement of slow reading: those elliptical routes are far more rewarding when confined to the particular context of the linear narrative. His work demands a depth of engagement that cannot be replicated by reading his work on a web browser, just one in 10 tabs of content in a web browser, with billions of other off-topic distractions a mere Google search away. Yet even for a print-native reader like myself, rediscovering the pleasures of slow reading and returning to the printed page is a struggle. Given an hour of free reading time, habit will compel me to the LCD screen rather than a book. I must make a concerted effort to sit down on the couch, book in hand. Once I open the book, keeping focused on that single linear feed of information is a constant challenge: I find myself twitchy, distracted, desperately in need of a reading discipline

that I unlearned at some point in the past decade as my attention turned to online media. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as if I have not only forgotten an important mode of critical thinking, but basic reading comprehension as well. The state of concentration required to truly engage with the printed word can be attained, and is indeed rewarding, but it requires one hell of a concerted effort in this day and age. Pundits like Jeff Jarvis, who collect healthy speaking fees by telling aspirational bloggers and new media entrepreneurs what they want to hear, might scoff at an appreciation of slow reading as being the rear-guard defense mechanism of a cultural dinosaur. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be half right. For all of slow readingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued rewards, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take an oracle to acknowledge that print is doomed to a future as a niche product that will command a premium from a small group of enthusiasts, not unlike vinyl or freerange meat. Which is a damned shame, in a certain senseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;clearly the human mind benefits from a type of close, engaged reading that print encourages. And while there are a handful of services that attempt to replicate that experience on a screen, to varying degrees of successâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Amazonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kindle, the web content archiving service Instapaper that accompanies me on the busâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the temptation of distraction is always near. Faced with that inevitability, something needs to change: either the way we consume content on screens or the way our brains process information. Futurist Ray Kurzweil argues that it may be our brains. Speaking recently on New York Public Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s On the Media, Kurtzweil suggested that the human mind will evolve to synthesize this new form of information gathering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over time, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically what we mean by the singularity,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get out to 2045, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have multiplied the overall intelligence of the human / machine civilization a billionfold, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a profound transformation that we call it a singularity.â&#x20AC;? Kurtzweil considers the wired brain as an inevitableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and advantageousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;next evolutionary step for the human race, one that is consistent with the development of our minds over time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is something unique about humans in that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only species that we know about that actually extends our reach with our tools, ever since we picked up a stick to reach a higher branch,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already a human / machine civilization. Our tools are part of who we are. They always have been. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what unique about human beings.â&#x20AC;? Kurtzweilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predictions have a good rate of accuracy, and I imagine heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. But even the overclocked evolution of the mind that he speaks of is a slow process, and neither the internet nor the brains we currently have are doing the trick. No matter how many lauded new web tools I use to pull disparate information together, there is nothing that can effectively

organize and synthesize the sheer wealth of information, leaving me with discreet pieces of data in an endless stream of facts, statistics, news and trivia. This information may reside on our hard drives or in the clouds, but only nominal amounts of it reside in our brain. And until the mind takes that evolutionary leap Kurtzweil speaks ofâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or we begin injecting Google nanobots in our minds to better tie together the brainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rudimentary search engineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this new system of thought does little to help the process of analysis, of synthesis, of pulling pieces of information together to reach an informed conclusion.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as if I have not only forgotten an important mode of critical thinking, but basic reading comprehension as well.

Kurtzweilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singularity may be decades away, but I suspect that this change has slowly begun, if not through evolution or nanobots, than through a change in practice. Even after rediscovering the value of slow reading, falling in love with print all over again, I find myself drawn by the allure of the screen. At times, slow reading seems almost too slow, and that intellectual quiet unbearable. My mind craves that discursive frenzyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe, like any other hard drug, the internet has rewired my brain. Perhaps weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re missing the point harping upon some arbitrary distinction between how we read in print and how we read online. No matter the media, we need to rediscover the discipline of slow reading that has been lost in the frenzy of never-ending RSS feeds and social network life streams. No matter how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re engaging with informationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in print or on screen, in a web browser or on a phoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been, essential for us to read slowly, be engaged with what we read, to constantly challenge ourselves to relearn how to think, to be critically engaged. That never-ending data stream isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going anywhere, and the fact is, we may need its addictive distraction more than it needs our attention.

Treehornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sign compels the bibliophile in off the street.

Treehorn Books still going strong in its 30th year By Cassandra Landry

;

ess than 10 minutes after Treehorn Books in downtown Santa Rosa has opened its doors for the day, a few eager booklovers have already begun to roam the store. Some are seated in the middle of aisles and perusing floor shelves, while others work through sections, letting their fingers occasionally drift over a book or two. Co-owner Michael Stephens stands on a small stool and rearranges a stack of natural history and travel books at an effortless pace as he talks, gazing at the jam-packed shelf for a few moments before plucking a book adorned with a picture of the California coast out of the lineup and inserting a new title in its place. He adjusts the organization of paperbacks and hardbacks almost instinctively, stacking books evenly to the ceiling. The crinkle of dust jackets fades into the peaceful background sounds of the store, and snippets of conversation drift in and around the maze of shelves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;See, we were always book people, not businessmen,â&#x20AC;? Stephens says of his partnership

with Keith Hotaling, a fellow bibliophile. The two joined forces in 1979 to found Treehorn, Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer to a literary treasure trove, banking on their intuition rather than any kind of business know-how. The two Bay Area locals modeled their bookish enterprise after secondhand booksellers around Berkeley, he explains, offering Pegasus Fine Books as an example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to be a secondhand bookstore that sold books relatively inexpensively with a huge variety of topics and a willingness to take a chance on anything that seemed interesting or unusual,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was our definition, and we have stuck to it ever since we opened the store.â&#x20AC;? This persistent dedication to finding unique content has been a lucky charm for the independent bookstore (â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a book that I see in every bookstore, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it. We like the unusual and the oddâ&#x20AC;?), allowing Stephens and Hotaling to avoid the sometimes cutthroat war between chain bookstores like Barnes and Noble and Borders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a totally different mindset,â&#x20AC;? says Stephens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, the problem with stores

like that is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selling books, but they might as well be selling nuts and bolts or auto parts or something like that. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as much of a thrill out of the discovery of books that is the natural component of someone who owns a secondhand bookstore.â&#x20AC;? A giddy and somewhat dreamy smile spreads across his face as he shakes his head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a lot of books in my day, and when I see something interesting that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen beforeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nothing thrills me more than finding a book like that. Nothing. That, to me, is as good as it gets.â&#x20AC;? Though there always seems to be a steady stream of customers wandering through the stacks at Treehorn, Stephens insists the bookselling business is on the decline, just like any other business in an economic downturn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a recession, people will bargain hunt, but the store doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just cater to bargain hunters,â&#x20AC;? Stephens says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also sell collectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; items and first editionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;expensive booksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; which really dies when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any kind of economic downturn. So while you may pick up a little bit in the bargain category, you lose as 'much in specialty.â&#x20AC;? THE BOHEMIAN

The prices of books are hitting rock bottom, he says, and online bookstores like Amazon are becoming an easy and cheap way to shop for literature. In the long run, howeverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;here Stephens waves a hand around his shopâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;physically browsing for a book canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be beat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amazon is handy, and certainly a serious competitor of the retail bookstore, but it also has extreme limitations,â&#x20AC;? he says as he f lips a book over to examine the back cover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A large chunk of our customers want and collect books on particular subjectsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say the Civil War. There are a lot of books on the Civil War. Some of them may be of interest to them, and many of them wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to know that until they see it and hold it in their hands.â&#x20AC;? The luxury of viewing thousands of entries through Amazon also takes away a taste of the unknown that many customers find irresistible, he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing beats poking around in a used bookstore, looking for books in your subject that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know exist,â&#x20AC;? Stephens says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amazonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s useless for that.â&#x20AC;? And the Kindle? The handheld digital bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;along with talk of the extinction of printed productâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has recently been making waves in the publishing industry, but Stephens makes it clear he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see technology toppling the book trade anytime soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it happening at all. There was the exact same kind of talk about record albums when CDs came out,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and books have been around a lot longer than any kind of [recorded] music.â&#x20AC;? He stops and scans the worn covers and book spines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus,â&#x20AC;? he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;people like them. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the size of a Kindle screen will end up being, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think looking at that and looking at a nice, big oversized art book is ever going to equate.â&#x20AC;? Stephens diverts from the conversation momentarily and begins the story of the greatest used book find of his life. While at an East Bay rummage sale 10 years ago, he stumbled upon 500 boxes of neatly packed books from the 1950s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, all in mint condition. He spent all day perusing the gemsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking Kurt Vonnegutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first novels,â&#x20AC;? he saysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and walked out with 50 boxes of books that found a home on Treehornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Independent bookstores are just more interesting,â&#x20AC;? Stephens says, coming back to the present and picking up the stack of books he has finished switching out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you were to ask people across the Bay Area what the best thing about this store is, I think one of the things that they would say is that you just never know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to find in here. I take that as an enormous compliment.â&#x20AC;? Treehorn Books is only one in a lengthy list of independent and secondhand bookstores in Northern California, a network that, despite all the recession woes, is alive and well.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;For not being in a big major city, there are damn few areas like this that could rival the book community that Sonoma County has. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to be a part of that,â&#x20AC;? Stephens says. Leaving the store, squinting a bit in the sun, the smell of old pages lingering for a few seconds, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a palpable understanding that nothing beats a new bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;except an old one.

Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; classic gets clipped in disappointing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Roofâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

By David Templeton

2

at on a Hot Tin Roof is, without a doubt, one of the greatest plays ever written by an American playwright. Its charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the grandly dying Big Daddy, the self-hating alcoholic Brick, the sexy-fierce Maggie the Catâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were already stage icons before they were respectively stamped onto the conscious of the country by Burl Ives, Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor in the 1958 film. These are the kinds of characters that actors dream of playing, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that the show is often used by drama schools and theatrical training programs. One canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but grow as an actor when faced with the massive challenge that is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. But make no mistake: this is not a play that works without a cast at the absolute top of its game. As beautifully written as Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; text is (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life has to go on when the dream of life is over!â&#x20AC;?), this dialogue does not sing itself. For Cat to work, the actors must find all the right notes and play them with pitch-perfect authenticity. This, after all, is a play about â&#x20AC;&#x153;mendacity,â&#x20AC;? Brickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oft-stated reason for drinking so much. It is Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exploration of the ways that lies, both small and large, undermine the human condition. There can be no false notes in a production of Cat, or the whole show crumbles. Summer Repertory Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current production, part of its annual five-show

season, is an unfortunately good example of this crumbling. Directed by James Newman with the laudable goal of shaking up and challenging its audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations, the production fails due to its inconsistent grasp of authenticity, beginning with the casting of Grace Gealey as Maggie. Normally a proponent of color-blind casting, I kept waiting for Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction to reveal some defensible reason for showing an African-American Maggie in a rocky marriage to Brick (David Hayden), the son of a white plantation owner. Set in 1954 in Mississippi, in the very heart of the KKKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stomping grounds, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to merely ask the audience to overlook the fact that Maggie is black, since the racism and intolerance of the era, time and place are so deeply seared into our minds. The result is that the choice of Gealey is distracting and inherently falseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a major fault in a play about falseness. A knockout performance might have been reason enough, but Gealey, who demonstrated herself to be a fine and agile actress with her delightful shape-shifting work on The Wedding Singer (reviewed here last week), doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring enough fire to the part of Maggie for the show to work. Though natural enough in her otherwise fluid performance, Gealey falls short of delivering the calculating, deeply feeling force of nature that is Maggie the Cat. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more Maggie the Kitten. As the self-destructive Brick, Hayden also falls significantly short of the mark. We should be able to see the pain and self-imposed shame, the underlying homophobia, that has driven Brick to sit in silence, drinking until he hears that click that allows him some peace of mind. But Hayden only sits and stares blankly, as if he were trying to remember something that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that interesting anyway. To make things worse, his idea of inebriation is bizarre; after something like 15 drinks guzzled in the course of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be a three or four hours, a mortal man would be slurring and stumbling, if not dead. Hayden, instead, just looks a little tired, as if worn out form all that passive staring. Tim Hayes, as the imposing Big Daddy, fares better, but he falls victim to the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lackadaisical pace. Set during one night, as the members of Big Daddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family celebrate his birthday while secretly maneuvering to inherit his estate when he dies, the show should have a building intensity that is ratcheted up with each new verbal conflict. The pace set by Newman instead is meandering, more like watching an ice cube slowly melt in one of Brickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numerous highballs. Programs like SRT are vital in the development of actors and theater professionals, but with plays as exalted as this, it is not enough to simply go through the paces. The audience deserves a Cat that puts as much heat on the stage as Williams put in he script, at least as much heat as there is up there on that imaginary tin roof. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cat on a Hot Tin Roof â&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs through Aug. 1 at Newman Auditorium on the Santa Rosa Junior College campus, 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.527.4343.

Woody Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatever Worksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stands by its title By Richard von Busack

C

he love of the last word is the province of comedians; when you put someone down, you want them to stay down. In this fashion, Groucho Marx sings â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hello, I Must Be Goingâ&#x20AC;? over the now-traditional white-on-black titles of Whatever Works, the newest Woody Allen movie, a weird mix of Ibsen and Doc Simon. Whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main character is Larry Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boris Yellnikoff. Though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jewish and from the outer boroughs, really heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Scandinavian / Germanic-style misanthrope, addressing an audience only he can see and sporting a terrible limp from his suicide attempt years previously. Formerly a physics professor shortlisted for the Nobel Prize (â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all politics, just like any award,â&#x20AC;? he says), today heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retired, a free-range castigator brutally teaching chess to children and living in a brick-lined vault in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinatown. One evening, Boris finds a girl curled up on a piece of cardboard under his fire escape. The waif is Melodie St. Anne Celeste (Evan Rachel Wood), a former Mississippi beauty queen who fled the Deep South and has no plans. Boris reluctantly puts her up while treating her to copious insults, yet takes her to the New York sites she wants to see. Cinematographer Harris Savides, a Gus Van Sant veteran and the vintage-lens cinematographer on Margot at the Wedding, brings up an even danker, smoggier version of the tropic humidity in New York than Zhao Fei provided for Allen in Small Time Crooks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permanent summer in this film, all the better to use Wood for her decorative qualities. Melodie takes Borisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprint completelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; his rants, his phobias and his dislike of sexâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and marries him. A year afterward, the in-laws arrive for a first visit. Marietta (Patricia

Clarkson) believes that she has tracked her runaway daughter down and is outraged to find the girl married to a neurotic man old enough to be her grandfather. Soon thereafter, Mariettaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estranged husband (Ed Begley Jr.) shows up in the apartment. Clarkson is good, of course, as a scratching post for Boris the grouch, a hybrid sort of Margaret DuBois or Blanche Dumont. She advances the action by introducing Melodie to a younger, better-looking and seemingly more suitable man, Randy (Henry Cavill), as flat as the handsome prince in a prep-school play. Whatever Works is based on a script Allen had in his drawer for several decades, and it shows. But despite some canned corn, Allen knows how to make a civilized comedy even when denouncing civilization. Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sneer is as effective here as it is on Curb Your Enthusiasm, yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to handle the eventual humanizing of Boris. If he sees the universe as a violent machine thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running down, why is he warmed by the miracle of unlikely birth? What does a miracle matter, if it only leads to disaster? This wonder-of-life argument is the same argument that led the icy physics professor Dr. Manhattan back to humanity in Watchmen, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not any more believable here. When weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re meant to feel for Boris after he wakes up the building with a panic attack in the middle of the night, screaming â&#x20AC;&#x153;The horror, the horror!â&#x20AC;? Allen presumes that the audience doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know their Conrad. Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Kurtz cause his own horror, through his own blind acceptance of ideas that dehumanized everyone around him? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatever Worksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens Friday, July 3, at Rialto Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

Pretty Young Thing

Rock with You

Man in the Mirror

Human Nature

Six years ago, Boston was a tough place to be if you were a single guy. On Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, the blizzard of 2003 struck, and those without a loved one to cuddle up toâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like Nathan Moore, Brad Barr, Marc Friedman and Andrew Barrâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; had to make do with instruments. At the end of the week, the four had self-recorded a debut album under the strange name Surprise Me Mr. Davis. With direct comparisons made to the Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music from Big Pink, the record took off on the Americana and jam-band scene; think Wilco vs. the Kinks, with classic songwriting like â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Hate Loveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Stupid I Am.â&#x20AC;? They appear with special guest Marco Benevento, a stellar avantgarde New York jazz pianist, on Tuesday, July 7, at the Mystic Theatre. 21 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8:30pm. $15. 707.765.2121.

Staring into his own ref lection backstage in his dressing room at the Napa Valley Opera House, Spencer Day couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe his luck. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d f lown in from L.A. that morning after being asked to open for Rufus Wainwright, and he, with only a guitarist as accompaniment, walked out onto the stageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and completely captivated the crowd. Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal style is swinging and easy but technically precise, not unlike Harry Connick Jr., and his songs are such enjoyable vignettes that being taken in by his charm and tenderness is as easy as watching an old Grace Kelly movieâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Train to New Jerseyâ&#x20AC;? is a good place to start. Wainwright was great that night in Napa, but Day was the real discovery. He makes a return appearance to charm his new fans with a special CD release concert for his new album, Vagabond, on Thursday, July 2, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $30. 707.226.7372.

Well, you know, it happens. Men have affairs. Men like NPR commentator Andy Raskin have affairs, even when they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having affairs. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a guy to do? When Raskin entered therapy to straighten out his sexual urges and was recommended to find a â&#x20AC;&#x153;higher power,â&#x20AC;? Raskin decided his higher power was ramen noodles. In his memoir, The Ramen King and I: How the Inventor of Instant Noodles Fixed My Love Life, Raskin details his search for Momofuku Ando, the inventor of the instant noodle and the Nissin products founder. Along the way, the search for Raskinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing inner monogamist plays out in an off beat but memorable story, involving revelations about Andoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life that mirror his own. A funeral at a baseball stadium closes the journey, but ramen will live forever. Raskin appears to discuss the book on Tuesday, July 7, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.

As if the events of the last week havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t brought up enough stories from the 1980s pop-music world, teen star and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s icon Tiffany makes a return appearance to the shores of the Russian River this weekend. Since dominating school dances over 20 years ago, Tiffanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sung country music in Nashville, posed nude in Playboy and evolved into a gay icon, making the rounds of LGBT festivals coast to coast. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of her girlish charm and her hitsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Think Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Alone Nowâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Saw Him Standing There,â&#x20AC;? both covers, as well as her tear-jerker anthem â&#x20AC;&#x153;Couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Beenâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;that we remember her most. She gets the neon jelly bracelet crowd hot and bothered on Sunday, July 5, at RiverSpace. 16135 Main St., Guerneville. 9pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 707.869.0691.

F8;2>C74A4E84F Back in their old neighborhood

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitting that former Wilco band member and songwriter Jay Bennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fatal overdose came just a month before this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wilco (the album). While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still the pretentious hipster move to say that a band â&#x20AC;&#x153;hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the sameâ&#x20AC;? since a certain member left, many fans certainly feel that way about Jay Bennett and Wilco. After all, Bennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last work with the group was their modern masterpiece Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, released in 2002. Their next record, Sky Blue Sky, was so softclassic-rock and bland that expectations for the new album are decidedly low. Thankfully, Wilco (the album) is a pleasant surprise. In an unwitting tribute to their days with Bennett, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh record harks back to their subterranean heyday, albeit in more polished form. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wilco (the song)â&#x20AC;? opens with a funky piano riff which recalls â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Stand Itâ&#x20AC;? from Summerteeth and a sense of humor that wipes away Skyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sterile sincerity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you had enough of the old / Put on your headphones,â&#x20AC;? Tweedy sings, as if in a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s bubblegum group. Then the chorus: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, oh, oh, Wilco, Wilco / Wilco will love you, baby.â&#x20AC;? While there are still clunkers, like the sleep-inducing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Country Disappearedâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Wing,â&#x20AC;? the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duds are adjacent to songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bull Black Nova,â&#x20AC;? a slowbuilding prog-rocker that ďŹ nally utilizes Nels Clineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eccentric guitar mastery, ending the song in a Sonic Youth shred fest alongside Tweedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yelp. The piano, sounding like the E Street Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Danny Federici, makes a welcome return alongside Clineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wailing slide work in the George Harrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like centerpiece â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Never Know,â&#x20AC;? an anthem for the times: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every generation thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the worst, thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the end of the world,â&#x20AC;? Tweedy sings before declaring in the chorus, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care anymore.â&#x20AC;? Sadly, the duet with Feist,â&#x20AC;? You and I,â&#x20AC;? barely reaches cutesy She & Him level, but we ďŹ nally get country-rock Wilco songs for the ďŹ rst time since the Being There LP in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Fightâ&#x20AC;? and the honky-tonk of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sunny Feeling.â&#x20AC;? While the recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improved lyrics still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach Tweedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous narrative heights, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to hear the group experimenting againâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and that Tweedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loosening the creative reigns on Nels Cline. Starting now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ofďŹ cially anticipating â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wilco (the return).â&#x20AC;? David Sason

;TcCWTaT 1TA^RZ Free music classes at the Phoenix offer instruction for all

By Jackie Johansen

C

he seven girls are sprawled on couches, gabbing about their favorite bands. Some describe themselves as emo, others as punk, goth or ska. One girl wears red plaid plants, knee-high black boots, a Rancid T-shirt. Another is timid, wearing a plain oversized black sweatshirt and shorts. A soft-spoken girl says she loves to wear costumes, especially tiaras. Instantly, a small blond girl next to her exclaims, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you going to make me wear a tiara?!â&#x20AC;? This is the first day of Femme Rockage, a free workshop at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Phoenix Theater where young girls can learn from seasoned female instructors how to be in a band, doing everything from playing different instruments to writing their own songs, silkscreening merch and marketing themselves. This one-and-a-half-week summer workshop is just one of the many workshops the Phoenix Theater has to offer at its grandly named Phoenix School of Music. Upcoming workshops are free and open to everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an enriching and invaluable resource for the community. Although different, these girls, between the ages of 12 and 16, all have their love for music and a desire to create their own in common. Some like to draw, some to sing, and one girl has a binder full of lyrics she has

written under her bed at home. An eccentric girl, decked out in a turquoise shirt and long skirt, who wants to be a volleyball player, announces, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I usually write songs about how I want people to die, but I think people could really rock out to them.â&#x20AC;? After a get-to-know-each-other meeting in the theater lobby, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upstairs to the studio, full of guitars, amps, basses and a drum set. The girls scatter and eventually settle down in a circle with instruments in hand. Instructors and local musicians make the rounds to help them set up. The girls plug their guitars and basses into amps; they learn to tune their instruments, and they all sit patiently, anxious to play. Emily, age 13 but â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost 14,â&#x20AC;? is at the drum set. She has never played before; she is here because she has â&#x20AC;&#x153;always wanted to play.â&#x20AC;? Gabby La La, the multi-instrumentalist and touring member of Les Claypoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band, teaches her a beat. Emily beams and pounds away. The others begin; the room slowly fills with a raw melodic sound, and their first Femme Rockage jam session has begun. Their bodies start to loosen with the music, their serious mouths stretch into grins. A quiet redheaded girl standing slightly to the side comes closer and starts to sing a melody. It all works, and the band digs it. Downstairs, music is coming from backstage. The Lipstik Prophesees, another Femme Rockage group, is rocking. In unison, they start playing the Ramonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blitzkreig Bop,â&#x20AC;? which melds into Nirvanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smells Like Teen Spirit.â&#x20AC;? When finished, the girls are thrilled, smiling and let out a chorused â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah!â&#x20AC;? They seem elated from playing these songs, but the atmosphere becomes serious. The instructors invite them to talk about creating their own music while using songs like the ones they just played for inspiration. The girls agree and get started on their own sound. On the agenda for the next day is band T-shirts. The students are instructed to think about logos; instantly four girls eagerly raise their hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ooooh, ooooh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an artist!â&#x20AC;? one says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Me too!â&#x20AC;? interjects another. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be an energy-filled week. The Phoenix School of Musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s female instructors are the living embodiment of the skills taught at Femme Rockage. Along with Gabby La La, Lauren Harkins (pianist of Not to Reason Why), Colie Sutter (bassist of Uterus Kin), Emily Whitehurst (vocalist for Tsunami Bomb and the Action Design) are all talented and dynamic women who have played the Phoenix Theater stage many times over. The course also comes with a brochure with testimonials from other women musicians about finding their own voice, their own confidence and their own talent. The motto of Femme Rockage is â&#x20AC;&#x153;to rock with love, honesty and integrity.â&#x20AC;? Most importantly, these no-cost classes are open to anyone. As the code of rockage declares, rockage is â&#x20AC;&#x153;recognizing the infinity and beauty of music as an art, a language, an idea and a way of life.â&#x20AC;?
