342>34AB>51B8B<>A4;8:48C Paul Davisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grow a Spine!â&#x20AC;? (July 1) illustrates how hard and fast weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve fallen for this dame called the internet. Now, like reintroducing ourselves to the dog whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been sitting by the door all this time, waiting for our return, Davis thinks weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to retrain ourselves to read. What the hell? If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become

â&#x20AC;&#x153;mere decoders of information,â&#x20AC;? then a timeless yarn like Tom Sawyer becomes just so much undisciplined data to organize, file away, and forget. After all, there is no need for recall if we can electronically re-package a meandering Mississippi River narrative as a characterless hyper-story geared for those who think they might die in the next minute or two. Oh sure, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still have our share of delightful summer days curled up on the hammock with a glass of iced tea, but we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be flipping pages. More likely weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be texting a cyber-friend about that new animated flick, Huck Finnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Off, loosely based on a novel by some guy named Twain. Supposed to be an author or something.

64C>DCB8340=3?;0H Thank you to Paul Davis for his honest and informative article. As an educator for 30 years, mostly at the college level, I strongly advise parents

to not waste their money on technological gadgets for their children. Invest in musical instruments, art supplies, books, playtime in nature, dance, hikes, month-long summer camps, etc. Your children will be happier, healthier and better educated instead of bored and restless with user-friendly technology. The choice is stimulation or education. After designing and teaching online courses, providing tech support and system administration as a director of online education, I see computers as tools with lots of data storage space. Computer usage is mundane and my technological learning curve is becoming a plateau. Sitting at a computer is mind- and butt-numbing. Fortunately, I grew up when education was more holistically challenging. I savored reading an entire book and used my imagination. I developed depth of focus, intellectual curiosity and the ability to ponder. Please ignore all the frantic internet/media frenzy. Children need to use their whole bodies and brains to learn then expend their energy in play.

2>A?>A0C450A<8=6A4B?>=3B As a sixth generation U.S. farmer, I fully understand the romance of yesteryearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food production systems, but a reality check is in order. As filmmaker Robert Kenner is making the circles promoting the release of Food, Inc. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cooking?â&#x20AC;? June 17), his message about the modern food production system is nothing but a circle as well. The most glaring example is the mention that food shortages are looming, yet the solution is reverting back to food production methods of the 1930s when one farmer fed 10 people. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American farmer feeds 164 people annually with the safest, most reasonably priced food the world has ever seen. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food system is safe, â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? and efficient. Cornell University just released a study indicating that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food system emits 63 percent less carbon per unit of food produced than the same unit of food produced in 1954. Science and technology combined with human initiative has allowed the U.S. farmer to provide food, fiber, fuel and pharmaceuticals more efficiently than ever before imagined. With all of that said, I am willing to make a deal. If Kenner is willing to show his film in black and white and silent as movies were in the 1930s, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go back to my grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era of food production.

Russian River Coalition aims to sink underage drinking By Cassandra Landry

0

mong Sonoma County teenagers hunting for verboten booze, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common knowledge that Monte Rio and Guerneville are some of the easiest places to get itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but not for long. The recently formed Russian River chapter of the Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking is rallying the community to put an end to easy access. Twenty-two-year-old Sonoma State University graduate Jessica Lenth, officially the Environmental Prevention and Friday Night Live coordinator for West County Community Services (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Try fitting that on a

business card,â&#x20AC;? she says) currently oversees the group, one of many across the nation that fan out from a parent organization formed in 1997. Her mailing list stands at about 20 so far, and Lenth says she sees about half of the members at any given meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a voluntary coalition, so finding time is always a challenge for folks,â&#x20AC;? she says. A native of Santa Cruz County, Lenth has seen her fair share of alcohol-related tragedy, which she says motivated her to get involved with similar groups through high school and college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My high school had the unfortunate event of losing quite a few students to drunk driving fatalities,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something

I was not interested in ever having to go through again, or watch anyone else go through, for that matter.â&#x20AC;? The Coalition uses an environmental prevention model, which Lenth explains concerns access, not ozone. The group focuses on the long-term impacts on a community through the policies and laws surrounding alcohol possession, working from the inside out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working to change the social norms and the community norms in general. Guerneville, like so many communities, is very unique and has its own ideas about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptable and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not,â&#x20AC;? Lenth says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working with the community to become more aware about the message & &

alifornia State University (CSU) is facing a $583.8 million dollar budget cut for the 2009-10 fiscal year. CSU faculty are being asked to take 10 percent less pay by accepting two days of furloughs per month for 2009-10. Justification for this request is to protect 3,700 full time equivalent lecturer positions (9,000 instructors) from lay offs. The CSU faculty, like state workers, are being asked to bail out the state by accepting less pay because of massive budget deficits. State worker unions and the California Faculty Association must stand firm against the CSU administration and state government officials. Giving concessions undermines the wages for working people across the board. It also means protecting the incomes of the rich and of the most powerful corporations in California. The budget crisis in California has been artificially created by cutting taxes on the wealthiest people and corporations. The current â&#x20AC;&#x153;crisisâ&#x20AC;? is a shock and awe process designed to undermine wages and unions in the state and force labor concessions to protect corporate profits. According to the California Budget Project, tax cuts enacted in California since 1993 cost the state $11.3 billion dollars annually. Had the state continued taxing corporations and the wealthy at rates equal to those 15 years ago, we would not have a budget crisis today. Even though a budget crisis was evident last year, California income tax laws were changed in February of this year to provide corporations with even greater tax savingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;equal to over $2 billion per year. Half of all state revenue comes from personal income taxes paid by working people; another third comes from sales and use taxes. The result is that as a percent of income, taxes hit lower-paid workers the hardest. Corporations only pay for about one-tenth of the state budget. The rest of us are bailing out the rich by accepting massive budget cuts at a time when less spending will only exacerbate the economic situation. Unions and working people need to say no to massive state budget cuts and fight for every service and job possible. We must say no to voluntary furloughs and push for new taxes on the wealthy and on the largest corporations. CSU professors should be the leaders for working people in the state. We must stand firm on no concessions, no furloughs and no cuts in classes for our students.

CSU faculty must lead and say no to furloughs



Over 25 CSU faculty have responded to my call for a negative vote on furloughs. Responses are running 5 to 1 opposing the furlough plan. The common negative response seems to be mostly that if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give in to furloughs, a lot of our colleagues will be laid off. Unfortunately this is true, but over 1,000 lecturers have already been laid off in the past year, and many more will face layoff whether we approve furloughs or not. The massive cuts to the CSU are not here just because of the recession. The recession had been long predicted. As working class faculty it is up to us to declare that there has been a deliberate effort to create an artificial fiscal crisis in order to force massive givebacks by unionized state workers. Several faculty have declared that given the cost of living in California, they are barely making it and a 10 percent cut will mean that they are unable to meet their basic expenses. Many lecturers, like my friend Larry Bensky, a 19-year veteran at CSU East Bay, have been told they will not be back in the fall. Under the artificial state fiscal crisis, we will continue to see a systematic laying off of lecturers as we have in the past year. The CSU system will not be able to immediately lay off 9,000 lecturers and still offer adequate classes for students currently enrolled. If the unions bail out the state with voluntary wage reductions, we are only delaying the inevitable without challenging the capital class in California. We must stand together in partnership with students to both challenge our elected officials and, if need be, move to a more open withdrawal of our labor to protect our lecturer colleagues and our students. We have yet to hear that anyone is proposing a graduated progressive furlough plan for which management personnel and presidents would have the highest percent salary declines, and the lowest-paid faculty/ employees the least or none at all. When such a move happens, then perhaps we should support a temporary suspension of our agreed salary increases under the union contract. In the meantime, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the state honoring our hard-won contract with promised cost of living increases, and instead we are being asked to take reductions. It is time to say no, enough is enough! Peter Phillips is a professor of sociology at Sonoma State University. Open Mic is now a weekly feature in the Bohemian. We welcome your contribution.

that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sending to younger generations.â&#x20AC;? Cheap beer and peach Schnapps from Mom and Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor cabinet have long tempted teens, but Lenth says the increased use of alcoholic beverages in media context has lead to a higher level of social pressure in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a lot of young people thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely that stereotype that everybody drinks and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you have to do to be popular,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re surveying students and collecting data, only about 50 percent admit to alcohol use. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely not the norm.â&#x20AC;? The Russian River-based group works through two branches: an adult voluntary coalition and high school recruitments, who in turn create on-campus chapters and sit in on adult meetings as representatives for the younger members of the community. Lenth emphasizes that the Coalition does not target young people specifically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of what we see in prevention is that people want to go out and talk to kids, and if kids just knew the risks of underage drinking. . . . but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see a lot of long-term behavioral changes that way,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So instead of putting it all on the young people to make better decisions, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really focused on having the community make better decisions on behalf of the young people.â&#x20AC;? Law enforcement officers are also present within the coalition and work closely with younger participants, Lenth says, staging regular minor stings at local establishments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under the age of 21 goes into a store with their valid California I.D. and tries to buy alcohol,â&#x20AC;? she explains simply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never allowed to lie about their age. In 2008, 57 percent of the stores still sold when they knew the person was underage.â&#x20AC;? With statistics that high, Lenth and her crew have their work cut out for them. The Coalition is funded by the Department of Prevention and Planning in Sonoma County, and Lenth adds that the Russian River area is one of seven communities that have money available to set up these preventative groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky enough to have a lot of support in terms of money,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We sit down and figure out our community needs assessmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what are all the issues around underage drinking in the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then develop a plan for each year and try to carry that out.â&#x20AC;? The group is currently growing by word of mouth, carrying out their communitybased agenda through law enforcement and workshops held for youth in the county like Friday Night Live, a program that Lenth coordinates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re county-funded, we have to be very careful about how we lobby, so I would say I do a lot of education about upcoming policies or potential areas in which legislators could be doing more,â&#x20AC;? Lenth says, mentioning a recent incentive to increase the alcohol tax by five percent. Lenth emphasizes that controlling access to alcoholic beverages is the coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is that young people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making moonshine in their basements. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting it somewhere,â&#x20AC;? Lenth says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents are providing it, merchants are providing it, friends are providing it. If we can control the access, then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re less likely to drink, period.â&#x20AC;?

Whole systems thinking and the new world of biz By Juliane Poirier

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no businessperson. Driven more by creativity and social justice values than profit-making urges, I have never been observed anywhere near the corporate ladder, and have no desire to attain rungs thereupon. My work, mostly in nonprofits, has allowed me to remain encamped among my own kind on the cultural fringes. So if I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t moved, why is the distance between the business world and me getting so much more narrow? Tiburon business consultant Jennifer Marks explains it as a shift in the prevailing business model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did my MBA in 1992,â&#x20AC;? Marks says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the business model I learned was the traditional one. In manufacturing businesses, for example, we solved business problems in a mechanical way, based on efficiency. The new model solves problems within a whole systems context. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difficult vision but you can feel it in your DNA in a way you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel the traditional model.â&#x20AC;? Marks, whose graduate studies in business were conducted both at Canterbury College in New Zealand and at Stanford University, has been a Bay Area business consultant for 17 years and a resident of Tiburon for six. She recently completed a pilot program at Dominican University of California, which earned her an executive certificate in green business administration. As a student in this new program, she claims she got a good grounding in systems thinking and became more convinced that to manage businesses sustainably one has to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;a re-designer of systems and a master of change.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a change master is critical,â&#x20AC;? Marks explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because so many systems are up for redesign. What the course does is it grounds you in how to change the system.â&#x20AC;? I ponder her statement with some surprise. I would more expect those words from the mouth of someone who just finished a social organizing training rather than a business course. Dominicanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green MBA was begun at the now-defunct New College in Santa Rosa, and is the first accredited green MBA program in the nation. The certificate program launched in fall of 2008, and is designed to meet the

needs of those who already have their MBA or who have enough business experience to go right to the core of sustainable management systems. Marks is the perfect candidate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you get to a more senior role in business, you want to work where you are involved with all of your values,â&#x20AC;? she says. All of my values, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve long presumed, would not be addressed by any business in the world. I care too much about things one cannot purchase for cash. But after a brief chat with Domincan faculty member Ed Quevedo, I am willing to reanalyze my presumption. The Green MBA faulty chair, Quevedo is an attorney who specializes in sustainable practice at Paldin Law Group in Walnut Creek. Quevedo teaches the capstone course in the executive certificate program, along with a course called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thriving, Regenerative Enterprise.â&#x20AC;? He claims that the triple bottom line of sustainability is a worn-out concept that needs to be replaced with the triple top line of regeneration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every business in the world has a responsibility to maximize benefitsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to measurably return to investors, to nature and to society more than the business takes,â&#x20AC;? Quevedo says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And until it can do that, it does not deserve to make a profit.â&#x20AC;? Wow. Did he really say that? If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the guiding philosophy in the new world of business, count me in. The fall session of the executive certificate program launches Aug. 8. Those interested in the program are invited to attend a free half-day immersion session on the Dominican campus on Saturday, July 18. Most of the program faculty will be available to offer a hands-on learning experience giving participants a taste of what the program is like. Program manager Ryn Longmaid says the ideal candidate for the program might be â&#x20AC;&#x153;someone who is poised for positive change, but not sure where to start.â&#x20AC;? The place to start, she says, is learning â&#x20AC;&#x153;the language, strategies, systems, history, future and forecasts of sustainable management. And this program offers them all of that.â&#x20AC;?

The new mandate is for a business to return more to investors, nature and society than it takes.

If it has a face, it probably gobbles up global resources along with its grass By Stett Holbrook

;

ast month, the federal government released a much-anticipated report on global climate change. It paints a chilling picture of what will happen if global warming continues unabated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This report is a game-changer,â&#x20AC;? said the new director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Jane Lubchenco, at a press conference last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that much of the foot-dragging in addressing climate change is a reflection of the perception that climate change is way down the road, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the future and it only affects certain parts of the country. This report demonstrates in concrete scientific information that climate change is happening now, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in our back yards.â&#x20AC;? The report, issued by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, compiles work from 13 different government agencies. In a refreshing break from the science-averse Bush administration, the report states unequivocally that climate change is human caused. The report

details changes scientists are already seeing and predicts how the climate will change if greenhouse-gas emissions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t curtailed. The report also discusses how decisive policies can roll back the impending doom. (Read the report at globalchange.gov.) Here are two of the key findings: â&#x20AC;˘ Climate changes are under way in the United States and are projected to grow. These include increases in heavy downpours, rising temperature and sea level, rapidly retreating glaciers, thawing permafrost, lengthening growing seasons, lengthening ice-free seasons in the ocean and on lakes and rivers, earlier snowmelt and alterations in river flows. â&#x20AC;˘ Agriculture is considered one of the sectors most adaptable to changes in climate, but increased heat, pests, water stress, diseases and weather extremes will pose adaptation challenges for crop and livestock production. There have been many reports on global warming and dire predictions from respected scientists. So far not much has changed. I hope

that President Obama uses the power of his position to spur the dramatic and speedy action needed to reduce the profound impacts of the crisis. The challenge Obama faces is convincing people that the time to change our ways is today, not tomorrow. The trouble is, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually realize weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in trouble until the roof starts caving in. For example, only when we faced global financial meltdown did world leaders act. A global recession is real and painful, but compared to the apocalyptic effects of unchecked global warming, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but a pinprick. What does all this have to do with food? Well, while the U.S. government appears to be finally getting serious about acting against global warming, we the people need to do as much as we can. Food strikes me as particularly targetrich as we seek to reduce global warming. I see reducing our consumption of meat as the single most important action we can take as individuals. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to view a double bacon cheeseburger as the culinary equivalent of dumping dirty motor oil into a clear mountain lake. If eating burgers &, THE BOHEMIAN

was only detrimental to those who eat them that would be one thing, but the production of meat and dairy across the world is an environmental catastrophe. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a firm believer in spending more for quality, food included. But eating well shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be prohibitively expensive. I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in how one defines â&#x20AC;&#x153;eating well.â&#x20AC;? For me, that means little or no processed food and plenty of fresh produce in season. Food is of course a necessary expense, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of discretion on how to spend your food dollar. But the ironic thing about food when you buy fresh, unprocessed ingredients and cook for yourself rather than opening a can or box, eating well generally costs less. At least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my belief.

According to the United Nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), livestock production generates nearly a fifth of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greenhouse gases, more than transportation. Animal agriculture is the leading source of methane and nitrous oxide emissions, which--combined with carbon dioxide--are the primary causes of global warming. Livestock production accounts for more than 8 percent of global human water use, the FAO says. Evidence suggests that it is also the largest source of water pollution thanks to animal wastes, antibiotics, hormones, fertilizers and pesticides used for feed crops, and sediments from eroded pastures. An estimated 30 percent of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ice-free land is involved in livestock production. Approximately 70 percent of previously forested land in the Amazon is used as pasture, and feed crops cover a large part of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left. Eating organically raised, grass-feed beef is a far better option than the factoryfarmed garbage that most of us eat. But organically raised or not, livestock still sucks up scarce natural resources and contributes to global warming. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying we should give up meat entirely. Just eat less of it. Given the severity of the climate crisis, reducing our consumption of meat is a painless step everyone can take. What if President Obama declared he was willing to go without meat a few days a week for the sake of the planet? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not holding my breath for that one, but more often than not Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to hold off on eating meat.

5Ă?C4=0C8>=0;4 here were only seven prisoners, none of them particularly political, housed in the Bastille on that hot July day in 1789 when the populace stormed the prison walls to liberate the unjustly jailed and help themselves to plenty of ďŹ rearms and ammo. But no matter the inmates, the action prompted the French government to shortly establish the Rights of Man and Citizen and, not incidentally, launched the ďŹ rst great party that has since come to deďŹ ne le quatorze juilliet.

Far from the land of skinny women and garlicky snails, Bastille Day is celebrated in the North Bay with food and song. In Mill Valley, the 142 Throckmorton Theater hosts the cheeky orchestra and dancers of Chez Kiki in its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cabaret Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; featuring the songs of Piaf, Chavelier, Brel and Baker with the nous sommes Française Moana Diamond and other Francophiliac performers on Saturday, July 11, at 8pm. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. $25-$35. 415.383.9600. In Napa, the liberation of prisoners and citizenry is exempliďŹ ed in fromage, accordions and le vin vieux. Cheese man Francis Sistiague has nimbly termed the celebration Napastille Day, organizing it around the many vendors gathered at the Oxbow Public Market for a celebration suitable for les enfants that features the SF Frisky Frolics outside at 6pm, French songs and dance all day, French cooper masters involved in live barrel making and oui, even French fries. Toni Cordioli holds down the squeezebox from 3pm while Allison Lovejoy tickles the ivories on Tuesday, July 14, from 2pm. Oxbow Public Market, 610 First St., Napa. Free. 707.963.1345. Meanwhile, the Costeaux Bakery in Healdsburg promises that Tuesday will swell with a full day of events that are â&#x20AC;&#x153;just like Paris . . . but the servers are nicerâ&#x20AC;? with a slate of activities including pĂŠtanque using bread bowls, cancan dancers and (quel dommage) a mime as well as French country dancing, an Eiffel Tower cookie decorating contest avec games for the kids, a goofy reenactment of the 1976 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Judgement of Parisâ&#x20AC;? wine-tasting, an appearance by Mme. Marie Antoinette herself and, in a nouveau twist, a waiterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. The tomfoolery commences at 9am on July 14 and stretches until 4pm, with plenty of yummy lovely food not surprisingly for sale. Costeaux Bakery, 417 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. Free. 707.433.1913.

THE BOHEMIAN



Immortalized by Waits in 1999, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place to celebrate and mourn, a place where you can go by yourself and ďŹ nd old friends or meet new ones, and yes, a place where regulars really do know your name. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recovery Room in Cotati, and sadly, after losing its lease, the roadhouse bar is closing later this month, probably on July 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not happy; Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s should stay here forever,â&#x20AC;? says co-owner Maria Romani, wearing a roller derby T-shirt while sipping a drink at the bar. She hopes to reopen Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at another Cotati location. The ramshackle wooden bar, on Highway 116 about a half a mile west of Highway 101, opened in 1976. Owners Bob (known as Red for his hair color) Lehan and Maureen Lehan took turns tending the bar, which became a place for celebrations ranging from turning 21 to divorcing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We welcomed everyone who walked through that door. They became our friends and regulars,â&#x20AC;? Maureen says, nostalgically surveying the bar last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A gathering place is being lost.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dying, dying dive,â&#x20AC;? says Michael Mudd, sipping a beer on Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor deck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a historic moment.â&#x20AC;? The burly Mudd works as an electrician and says that one reason he loves Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is that anyone can go there straight from work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sweaty or grimy, no one cares.â&#x20AC;?

Mudd recalled bringing his elderly mother to Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for a drink on a Sunday some 15 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know what your Mom needs,â&#x20AC;? Red said to Mudd before making his mother a perfect martini. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sin to have a cocktail back then,â&#x20AC;? Mudd adds.

Pride Mountain Winemaker Dinner

Kathleen was sittinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; down in Little Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recovery Room in her criminal underwear bra / I was naked to the waist with my ďŹ erce black hound/ And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m cookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; up a Filipino Box Spring Hog â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Tom Waits, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Filipino Box Spring Hogâ&#x20AC;?

The Lehans sold Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in 2003, and Red died in 2004. But Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recovery Room soldiered on, giving people a place to play pool and buy stiff drinks at fair prices.

Red was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a big, six-foot-tall redhead, a beautiful person,â&#x20AC;? Mudd remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He could handle a bar and stop a ďŹ ghtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he was very polite, but big enough to escort you out the door.â&#x20AC;? Like all great old bars, Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is ďŹ lled with stories (liquor was distilled in the basement during prohibition, says one legend). Romani even swears that a ghost appears after hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever worked here has seen it,â&#x20AC;? she asserts. Is the ghost Red? Romani says no, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good ghost.â&#x20AC;? Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosts a closing bash on Saturday, July 11, from 2pm to 2am. 8175 Gravenstein Hwy., Cotati. 707.795.4100.

6A4H BC02: 24;;0AB he views are grand, the slopes green with prosperouslooking vines. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guess that this Bennett Valley estate has endured such a share of rocks thrown its way. The ďŹ rst crop came in 2003, just as a tremendous grape glut was underway. Then, as soon as they released their own â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dry Stackâ&#x20AC;? label, lawyers representing Dry Sack Sherry persuasively â&#x20AC;&#x153;suggestedâ&#x20AC;? that they change their nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just to make certain that a few hundred cases of Sonoma County product wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take market share from a mass-produced kitchen cupboard wine. Now, sales of Syrah, which promised to be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;next big thingâ&#x20AC;? when they planted, have stalled out.

T

Yet Grey Stack forges ahead, because this is a choice spot for growing cool-climate RhĂ´ne-style wines. How cool? Dry Stack Vineyard (they only had to rename the wine, not the land) lies directly in the path of an arrow of fog that the ocean regularly shoots through the Petaluma Gap to hit Bennett Valley like a bullseye. Even when fog is not visible, cool breezes blast through Crane Canyon. Syrah dramatically reďŹ&#x201A;ects local conditions, the terroirâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but unlike Pinot Noir, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just fall apart outside of its comfort zoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it keeps on going, from hot and jammy Australian-style â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shirazâ&#x20AC;? from Alexander Valley, on down to brooding, earthy styles from cooler climes. Before planting in 2001, Grey Stackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peter and Marie Young spent a few weeks in the RhĂ´ne Valley, which convinced them to go with Syrah. They pulled out a 4,000-yard pile of rocks in the development process; the crew in turn made rock walls from the pile, using the old mortarless â&#x20AC;&#x153;dry stackâ&#x20AC;? method of ďŹ tting rocks together. Hence, the now-gone name. The 2008 Rosemaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Block Sauvignon Blanc ($28) is a nice lean style with teases of toast and tropical fruit; half barrel-fermented, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got understated ďŹ&#x201A;avors of lemon drop and pineapple. The 2006 Marieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Block Syrah ($38) is sensuous and leathery, with hints of bacon fat and a few hairs of horse, sprigs of mint and rosemary, warm red berries and a dryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not dryingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; ďŹ nish. The 2006 Narcissist Syrah ($48) is basically the same wine with more and darker oak, which ties down the mineral-soaked fruit, and needs time to open up the other aromas. The 2007 Folly Syrah-Grenache ($32) is so-called for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Folly,â&#x20AC;? when he hastily harvested three weeks before his clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grapes. Guess what? Pick early, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get disasterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you get France. Dark aromas of saddle, beef stick and savory herbs dominate black cherry and roasted beets, with a gentle shadow of tannin. The Youngs were advised that heatloving Grenache wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ripen until Christmas; if this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ripe, it is enticing. Marin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Broc Cellars makes a single varietal wine from their share of the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grenache; the deep garnet wine starts off dusty and sultry, opening to black cherry and licorice with air. Dried red cherries and cayenne pepper heat the tongue, ďŹ nishing ďŹ ne and dry, a slight herbal astringency with an echo of playa absinthe. For current and future fans of the wild, earthy fruit of the RhĂ´ne, Sonoma-style, this is Christmas. Grey Stack Cellars, 4100 Grange Road, Santa Rosa. By appointment only.

5PSTc^1[PRZ Filmmaker Alejandro Adams and the fierce and glutted world of indie movie-making By Richard von Busack

1

ecome an indie filmmaker! Earn big money! No experience necessary! That promise inherent in the rise of digital film and homeediting technology may be at an end. Blockbusters elbow out the offerings of small-budget filmmakers, who try to get a word in edgewise past this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cinematic event. The irony is thick. Even as theatrical features become cheaper and easier to make, they proliferate so quickly that it is harder and harder to find an audience for them. Intense competition for big-money features results in the release each week of as many as a dozen little movies you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard of, with no budget for promotion and just one week to make it or break itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;mostly in the name of garnering blurbs for the DVD release. And

those are the films that have distributors. Just ask area filmmaker Alejandro Adams about how many obstacles an indie film must surmount. Adams earned praise from Variety for his 2008 film Around the Bay. The trade paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dennis Harvey has called Adams â&#x20AC;&#x153;an arresting talent.â&#x20AC;? Well-regarded indie-film blogger Karina Longworth and The New York Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Phillip Lopate (so did I, for what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth) added to the positive press for Around the Bay, an impressionist tale of a Los Gatos businessman and the estranged daughter he hires to work as a nanny for his son, her half-brother. Despite the praise and some well-received local screenings, Around the Bay continues to bounces around the film-festival circuit without a distributor. Not so long ago, the Woodstock Film Festival sent Adams a typical â&#x20AC;&#x153;thanks, but no thanksâ&#x20AC;? letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again,â&#x20AC;? Adams tells me, ruefully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about a festival known to program

scrappy low-budget fare. The festival made its name on DV [digital video] features with no light and bad sound. The rejection letter had a handwritten message in the margin: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Too bad we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have room for thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the actors were good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second film, Canary (2009), also turned out to be too strange for the alleged cutting edge. Canary is far less narrative-driven than Around the Bay even. This dystopic set-in-thenear-future story of organ harvesting was made with no blood, no gore and no sci-fi gadgets. Adams concentrates on one strange cog in the wheel: a dark, solitary girl (Carla Pauli) who works for the biotech concern Canary International, capturing unwilling donors and recycling their guts. She connects the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disparate parts: a focus group, an office full of chit-chatters and a few half-deranged individuals who have intuited whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going on.

Adams is a creative writer who moved into the realm of film. As he works, he opens up his process, pushing hard, experimenting and working on budgets that couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even really purchase shoestrings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Canary,â&#x20AC;? Adams notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was expressing nothing more than a notion, allowing the camera to articulate an idea that I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed myself to fully formulate. I guess thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ultimate form of organic or intuitive cinema, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure to what degree it can be sustained in the context of an ostensibly narrative film. [I was] turning dreams into cinema, basically, as Wim Wenders dealt with in Until the End of the World.â&#x20AC;? And now Adams is editing his third film, Babnik, while working on two new films simultaneously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get stuck in editing,â&#x20AC;? he confesses, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and as in the case of my three previous longer films, I get locked in an in-depth process where communicating with human beings is not required. My films are heavily improvised, and it takes a long time to edit them. Doing two new films side by side is logistically simple; while thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no overlap of the cast, the crews are identical. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no dramatic correlationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but one of the films is very emotionally difficult.â&#x20AC;? His two new films are titled Child of God and Amity. Adams is in the middle of his hectic side-by-side filmmaking marathon even as I talk to him. Before he began making these films, Adams promised, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Child of God will offend anyone who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offended by Babnik and Amity.â&#x20AC;? Adams is shooting the two films locally on weekends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Child of God, the film Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making on Saturdays, is not so emotional,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sunday film, Amity, is very much so. I should have scheduled the heavy one on Saturday and the lighter one on Sunday.â&#x20AC;? In Amity, the title character, a young girl, is about to graduate high school. Her very estranged father, an Air Force officer, turns up unannounced on her doorstep with the surprise present of a limo. Amity wants no part of him. So the limoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driver (a former military man himself) and the officer head off together for a self-destructive evening. The potential for trouble in a night out for these two charged-up men accounts for the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heaviness. Adams notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father is based on my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the irascible Air Force guy whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as charming and magnetic as he is dangerous. It would have been hard enough to face the film had my father not died three days before we started shooting. And, no, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting it.â&#x20AC;? Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sunday film, Child of God, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;very unusual for me, it has the kind of broad ideas that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my cup of tea. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m using the red-state, blue-state power struggle between a church and a variety show thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renting their building. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the culture war in

07.08.09-07.14.09

After the crunch time of getting these three films into viewable shape, Adams proposes a triple-threat attack on the filmfestival circuit in time for the fall submission deadlines: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want them to all come out of the hopper at the same time.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, Adams is watching his earlier films as they slowly rise in the world. This spring, Canary screened at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Migrating Formsâ&#x20AC;? program at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City. This month, Canary will play at Fantasia, a Montreal film festival dedicated to science fiction and fantasy; â&#x20AC;&#x153;lots of European press there,â&#x20AC;? Adams notes hopefully. AFI in Los Angeles has agreed to look at Canary without an entrance fee. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a possibility that one of the key magazines about independent film will list Adams as one of the 25 directors to watch in 2009.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It would have been hard enough to face the film had my father not died three days before we started shooting.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, the brand is growing, regardless of how few times the film is screening,â&#x20AC;? Adams says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a backlash. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hearing the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hipsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; used about me, probably because some very powerful people in the indie film community are giving me recognition.â&#x20AC;? Adams is a regular presence on Twitter, quick to reply to the critics and fans and to comment on the various feuds in the cinema world. There he can be found discussing the beyond-indie scene with intelligence or liveblogging a recent cable TV screening of The Magnificent Andersons. I griped that it was abominable to be thumbing away when you should be watching the movie. Adams countered that he knew the film well. Certainly, the track of comments he and others left were intelligent, ranging from close looks at the compositions, the underuse of Agnes Moorhead and the strangely good performance by the usually mediocre Tim Holt in Orson Wellesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second masterpiece. Adams is and has been a provocative writer on the rise and fall of â&#x20AC;&#x153;mumblecoreâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an indie rebellion that, like all indie rebellions, was co-opted fast. Last winter, I watched Adams at work directing a scene for Babnik. I was there for two and a half hours, and mostly what I

THE BOHEMIAN



saw were people crossing the room. I sat on a spiral staircase behind the reflectors and the boom mikes. The improvised studio was quiet enough to hear the droning of a B-52 wheeling overhead from Ames/NASA. The scene involved girls auditioning for what seems to be a legitimate modeling agency, doing the pony walk for a slightly sinister group of Russians. One girl posed, sitting, smiling prettily, on the edge of a three-legged stool. Behind me in the break room, the mother, a chaperone for one of the female players lounged in a conical chair. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only one minor in this picture,â&#x20AC;? Adams says later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would have liked to have had more. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more creepy that way.â&#x20AC;?) The scene was completely unexplicit but completely insinuating. A model entered, wearing high heels, rolling her shoulders in her tight, low-cut ultramarine dress; a Russian emigrant, Misha, newly in the sex trade looking her over, pantomimed to her how to thrust out her hip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tip your head. I want to see your eyes.â&#x20AC;? Adams told Michael Umansky, the actor playing Misha: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to manhandle her more . . . harder, faster, whirlwind. Touchy-touchy. Be brutal. Make this clear to anyone watching that this is a kind of sexual manipulation.â&#x20AC;? Alejandro padded around on rubber sandals in a jersey and shorts. He took care of business, cutting the air-conditioning because of sound leakages. He instructed some Russian extras in the background to talk to each other so the sound would percolate in from off-camera. Directing is much a matter of directing traffic as much as directing performances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your walk is a little campy, give me something more naturalâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;this was Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; note to one of the Russiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; security officers, who sported, for the part, a peroxided blond pompadour. Or pimpadour if you will. Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work was efficient. He did not expend an enormous amount of time on retakes or reverse angles but insisted on constant momentum, both in the foreground and in the back of the frame. He was working from a script outline. Earlier, Adams had sent me page describing the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. It was more suggestion than script, explaining â&#x20AC;&#x153;the elaborate but practicalminded flatteryâ&#x20AC;? going on in the scenes. Misha, the director of Russian Models Ventures, would be sweet-talking the girls, repeating the sales pitch he uses to sell them worthless vitamin supplements and beauty products. Later, watching a rough cut of Babnik, it struck me that Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; particular angle was the work-day world. Babnik is a film about the bad jobs of immigrants, bad for the sellers, worse for the sold. The theme strikes me as consistent. Adams explores the solitude of a workingstiff repo-woman in Canary. The father in Around the Bay is at the breaking point from overwork in the field of venture capitalism. Adams might suspect such an analysis overemphasizes plot, when he believes that his form is more important than his content. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to write about plots than about Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; intense yet allusive focus, his intelligent sound design, his probing yet cooled-down

use of inflammatory material and the pensive quiet force he lets loose in the actors.

The Sell How does a filmmaker facing a series of artistic challenges change gears and learn to sell himself ? Most recently, Adams held an online roundtable at his website BraintrustDV.com. The essays at BraintrustDV are both hopeful and ridden with informed pessimism. (A disclaimer: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a full-time critic, and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard of some of these films, either, which of course has nothing to do with their merit.) Some comments: Reid Gershbein (of Here. My Explosion â&#x20AC;Ś): â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would rather have 1,000 people see my film for free than have 2 people pay me $15 for a DVD.â&#x20AC;? Noah Harlan, producer of The Vanishing Point and Plum Rain: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that a performance without an audience is masturbation.â&#x20AC;? Clive Davies-Frayne, co-director of No Place: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line though is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all just people shouting for attention to a world that hates being shouted at. There is an answer. Mutual-marketing or tribal marketing.â&#x20AC;? Tony Comstock of the erotica/ documentary series Finding the Right Fit: â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the hype around Sundance, Tribeca, Berlin, whatever, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to accept that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any money in it.â&#x20AC;? Finally, Angelo Bell of The Broken Hearts Club weighs in: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kill the Auteur. Long Live the Entrepreneur.â&#x20AC;? Where will these new entrepreneurs sell their films? The lineup at Tribeca this year was half what it was in 2008. The San Francisco International Film Festival runs at the same time as Tribeca and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruinous that the festivals overlap, given the limited number of filmmakers and cineastes in the world. James Stern of Endgame Entertainment opened his conference keynote speech at the L.A. Film Festival this year with the numbers: there were nearly 10,000 films submitted to Sundance this year, of which 218 were screened, of which three were distributed. Sundance isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only game in town. Moviemaker.com lists the 25 festivals worth the entry fee, including the Napa Sonoma Wine Country Festival. Still, Poppy Jasperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art in 30 minutes or lessâ&#x20AC;? motto is going to keep feature filmmakers out. Of course, Cinequest in San Jose continues to be an outlet for international talents and a chance for indie filmmakers to get the attention due them. At Cinequest 2005, filmmaker James Ricardo played his film Sunnyvale. He retitled it as Opie Gets Laid and found a small DVD distributor. Ricardo writes in: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are all kinds of distribution these days, and I respect them all. But I guess I wanted to go with the more traditional distribution route and not just Internet only. Plus a distribution deal with a major distributor adds more street cred to your film, I feel. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just me but I love seeing those studio logos on DVDs and movie posters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still think at the end of the day people

Indentured Talent I can remember when an old-time film critic published an article about his

experience of watching five films in one day, and how that seemed like wretched excess. I’m sure there are dozens of bloggers who do this every day, every week. There are people I know who are on the film-festival circuit almost full time, and their source of income is an utter mystery to me. They’re not getting rich from the money they’re not making at blogs. Perhaps they live in their van? Around us are the growing pains of new ways to show alternative film: what we have now is a system that burns out and indebts talent. New film societies create new fests, occasionally with celebrities responsible, such as Tilda Swinton’s Anti-Film Festival in Nairn, Scotland. It’s made to be a Scottish answer to Telluride (which itself is held at an aerie in the Colorado Rockies; it might be harder to get there than to the Scottish Highlands). The particularly remote Midnight Sun Film Festival in Sodankylä, Finland, last month brought John Boorman and Samira Makhmalbaf to the caribou-haunted tundra.

Where will these new entrepreneurs sell their films? If viewing context is all, seeing films so far from the centers of opinion, like New York or L.A., must offer a fresh perspective. On the one hand, this is cinema appreciation free from status-seeking. On the other hand, it’s like Versailles with theaters: so very far from the crowd, celebrities can re-create the experience of group movie watching without having their shirtsleeves tugged by the wrong people. Meanwhile, festival selection committees and what’s left of the film watching press—in the ether or on paper—all have something in common. That is: a stack of DVDs next to the television, slippery and tottering. Small as they are, each one is as heavy as a manhole cover when it comes time to pop it into the player. If you have a mate, they moan like the burn victims they are at the suggestion of spending an evening taking a chance on a raw indie film talent. And in the for-us, by-us indie film milieu, the actual open floodgates have meant that the “universal language” aspect of film maybe on its way out. I fear that a collaborative art made for an audience of all kinds fades into the hermetic quality of the poorly attended poetry reading and hoot night at the Gilded Turkey Pub. I’m haunted by Tony Comstock’s comments on BraintrustDV. The New York director of Finding the Right Fit, profiles a series of different couples, not traditional beauties (one couple is maybe in their 60s); Comstock’s focus in these serious and tender documentaries is explicit lovemaking. My point is that when you have a director complaining he can’t get an audience to watch people having sex, the scene is glutted and in trouble.

want to watch feature films on a big screen TV or on the movie screen, not on a PDA or a computer. It isn’t the same experience otherwise. And it’s not really fair to the filmmaker’s vision either.” Tamara May Malone, producer of the Los Angeles–made indie film A Quiet Little Marriage, says an indie film needs “a long tail of distribution. How do you market and get your film out there, for the longest period of time to the most amount of people? The Internet is opening up uncharted territory— but we still don’t know how its trajectory is going—how it will make money, how we’ll get people to see this kind of material, and how to see it at home.” Matthew Szymanowski, who is heading for film school at San Francisco State this fall, emailed me out of nowhere to ask if I could look at his film. He had worked as a volunteer at Cinequest but didn’t get his film accepted. He had just finished History of Solitude, an intriguing 32-minute film he made at the renowned Polish film school at Lodz, the school of Polanski and Kieslowski. Szymanowski had a film playing at 2009’s San Francisco International Film Festival Narrative Short in competition for the Golden Gate Award, but he didn’t have the money to get from Poland to San Francisco to screen it. Any suggestions? I hear from him again later. Somehow he got to San Francisco, and I make a quick pass by the festival to pick up a screener. The IMBd description, used word for word in the festival’s catalogue: “The ache of a relationship slowly disintegrating is honestly and vividly captured in this road movie with no clear destination.” While I’m certainly ready for that, my experience is that there’ll be others who will just roll their eyes; who wants to see aching, who wants to see destination-free filmmaking? He tells me that I will be able to recognize him because he has the starving-artist look. Maybe not, since there’s a lot of it going around these days. Szymanowski tells me, “The whole festival process is in itself a big hassle, because after you’re done with a film, and it’s all edited and mixed and ready to be screened, you kind of imagine that people will just gather around and see it. But then you realize you have to actively send it out and get press on it and do marketing and continue to do so, until finally someone sees something worthy in the film. Because you know that the film is good but it’s a matter of finding the festival that agrees with you. That takes time. I continue to send the film out to festivals, but eventually I’d like to put it online and focus solely on the next projects.” This determination is essential. Filmmakers have to demand attention. Still, I’m getting my own bitter on listening to these stories: the rare successes, the plentiful defeats. People ask why critics get hardened. Maybe it’s because we have to do a bit of bulldozing to try to make some room for talents who need it.

=^\PS2^\_P]h Pegasus Theater Company loses a home and gains everything else By David Templeton

ig Changes at Pegasus Theater Companyâ&#x20AC;? was the eye-grabbing headline that appeared several weeks ago on the Pegasus Theater Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, accompanied by a long letter explaining the gory details: after more than 10 years at Monte Rioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pegasus Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the theater for which Pegasus was namedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the scrappy little river town theater troupe was given its eviction notice. After months of negotiations and at least one last-minute extension of the lease, the company was unable to come to an agreement with the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner, Michael Tabib, who, ironically enough, founded the original Pegasus Theater Company. Now an official nonprofit, Pegasus gets to keep their name. Along with a decade of great memories, that name is now the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only concrete connection to Pegasus Hall, their home since 1998. Such circumstances have spelled the end for many theater organizations, young and old. But the actors and crew of Pegasus, after a short period of public mourning, decided not to give up so easily.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided that old dogs can learn new tricks,â&#x20AC;? says Lois Pearlman, a longtime actor with and director for Pegasus, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and that maybe we even have a few new tricks up our sleeve. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built a pretty solid little theater community out here on the river, and none of us wanted it to endâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;though for a while it looked like it might be the end.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a complete shock, we did have some time to adjust to the idea before it actually happened,â&#x20AC;? explains Nancy Hansen, Pegasusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new artistic director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was June 10 of 2008 that we first got notice of our possible eviction. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a year to plan for this. We tried really hard to come to an agreement with the landlord, but ultimately, we were asked to leave. So here we are.â&#x20AC;? And by here, Hansen means nowhere. Homeless. Or to use the phrase now adopted by the surprisingly cheerful Pegasus gang, â&#x20AC;&#x153;free.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Were free, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true,â&#x20AC;? Pearlman agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re free of monthly expenses, for one thing. We are now free to explore possibilities that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open to us when we were responsible for paying a monthly rent. We really are trying to be as positive as we can. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to say,

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, this is the way it is. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move on. What do we really want to do now?â&#x20AC;? To come up with an answer to that question, the company met every first Sunday at Guernevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village Inn, which has donated space for Pegasus to hold meetings, playwriting workshops and other get-togethers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, one of the big challenges, initially, was not having our own physical spot to meet,â&#x20AC;? Hansen says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our first instinct was to find a new theater somewhere, even if it meant moving out of Guerneville. But around New Years, we decided that Pegasus theater company is a company, first and foremost. This company is about a group of people making theater, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about a building. So, over the course of a few meetings, we talked out all the possibilities, and it was pretty much a consensus that we wanted to stay in Guerneville. We did have other opportunities. We could have moved up to the 101 corridor. We had an opportunity to do shows out in Jenner. But we all agreed that we want to continue to serve the Russian River community weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always served, and Guerneville is the hub of that community.â&#x20AC;? Home or no home, the people of Pegasus

decided to announce their 2009 season, the first production of which is Alfred Uhry’s beloved Driving Miss Daisy, to be staged in the sanctuary of the Guerneville Community Church. The play, which inspired the Oscar-winning movie featuring Morgan Freeman, Jessica Tandy, and Dan Ackroyd, opens July 10, is being directed by Hansen, and will feature Pearlman as Miss Daisy, Arnie House as Miss Daisy’s African-American chauffer Hoke and Donovan Dutro as Miss Daisy’s son. The choice of the Guerneville Community Church, affiliated with the United Church of Christ, may not be as off-the-wall as one might think. The church has already established itself as a creative hub and cultural center, and is also the headquarters of Guerneville’s low-powered local radio station KGGV 95.1-FM, located in a one-time broom closet. According to Hansen, the church is a perfect spot to launch Pegasus’ first season away from Pegasus Hall, since both institutions are solidly rooted in serving their communities. Plus, it’s a beautiful church. “It’s really a lovely venue,” Hansen says. “The church has a definite feel-good environment, with wooden pews and wooden walls.” There were logistical issues to work out, for sure, but Pearlman says that both parties were eager to make the arrangement work, and have each accepted compromises as Pegasus moves toward opening night. “It’s certainly different than when we were more or less in charge of our own space,” Pearlman laughs. “We can’t actually get into the church to set up our until a week before the opening, but that’s all right. Also, we’ll have to take our set down on Saturday nights to make room for church services on Sunday. That’s why we decided not to have Sunday matinees.” “That’s where we’ve been spoiled,” Hansen says with a smile. “Having Pegasus Hall as a home base meant that once the set went up it stayed there till the play was over.” “Of course, one of the beauties of doing Driving Miss Daisy,” says Pearlman, “is that aside from it being written so well, it is also written for a minimal set. That’s the way the playwright wanted it to be done, a very minimal set, with very slight changes to show the passage of 20 years in the course of 20 scenes.” Pegasus’ other major project of the moment is the next installment of “Tapas,” their popular ongoing short-play series. Though not scheduled to run until summer of 2010, each “Tapas” series is a major undertaking, so the organizers are getting ready to start requesting submissions soon, in tangent with an ongoing short-play workshop class, lead by 2009 “Tapas” playwright David Beckman, to take place this month at the Village Inn. “I think ‘Tapas’ is probably our most f lexible and vigorous project,” Hansen says, “almost a theater company unto

itself. We’ve proven that ‘Tapas’ has a huge following within the community, as far as audience. People really look forward to it and then they show up in large numbers. It’s important that we continue this. There’s not a lot of opportunity, out on the river, to see a lot of new plays.” As Hansen and Pearlman explain it, the freedom afforded by being homeless also allows Pegasus to try completely new things, things they’d have been reticent to try in the past. “We’d like to do a play in Spanish,” Pearlman says. “We’ve always harbored these desires to really outrageous things, but knew that if we didn’t bring in an audience we couldn’t pay our rent, so that limited the kinds of chances we could afford to take. Now with no home, we can afford to take chances.” “We’re taking it one day at a time,” Hansen adds. “We’re reading a lot of plays, dreaming of the future.” With a delighted chuckle she adds, “I’m mostly reading short plays with just a few characters, plays that are as mobile as possible.”

‘This company is about a group of people making theater, it’s not about a building.’ —Nancy Hansen

And speaking of mobile, Pearlman mentions one possibility that will new meaning the Pegasus’ new label as a nomad company. “It’s been suggested,” she says, “that we get a big f latbed truck and do a tour of Sonoma County, parking in shopping malls or parks and putting on a play for whoever happens to be there. That’s a crazy, impossible idea—but now, it’s not out of the question. We just might do that some day.”

New one-man show a study in the evolution of one-man show

By David Templeton

n the opening moments of Rick Reynoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; enjoyably self-obsessed one-man show, Only the Truth is Funny: Mid-Life at the Oasis, the semi-reclusive stand-up comic-turnedperformance artist deftly relates his three rules for a happy and contended life. No. 1: The knowledge that you were loved as a child. No. 2: The belief in a benevolent God. No. 3: Participation in a loving romantic relationship. Possession of all three of these elements, Reynolds says, is a guaranteed shot at a life filled with good things; two of them is still better than most people; and even one of them gives you a step-up toward some semblance of contentment and happiness. Without any of these, Reynolds believes, you are pretty much screwed. This established, he goes on through the bulk of a brisk and funny 90-minute showâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;currently running at Cinnabar Theater in Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to relate why none of these all-important ingredients exist in his own life: he was unloved as a child, is solidly atheistic and was divorced almost a decade ago (and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten laid for six years). Yet he still goes on to end his show on a huge up-note, with a common-

sense road map to finding true and lasting happinessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no matter how screwed up oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childhood might have been. The original Only the Truth is Funny, the show that made Reynolds moderately famous in the 1990s, was a then-pioneering blend of stand-up comedy and frank personal confession. The show played for years in San Francisco before moving on to Hollywood and Broadway. Reynolds followed it up with another show, All Grown Up . . . and No Place to Go, which was adapted into a short-lived television series. For the last decade or so, Reynolds has been writing screenplays and television pilot scripts, keeping a low profile at his Petaluma home. Several months ago, on off-nights at the Cinnabar Theater, Reynolds began workshopping a new version of Only The Truth is Funny, folding in new material with the aim of taking the revamped show on the road again, perhaps even back to Broadway. This summer, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back at Cinnabar with another run of an even tighter, funnier and more philosophical script, with a name that reveals the ongoing evolution of the show (the addition of the catchy, if slightly toocute Mid-Life at the Oasis). Leaner and meaner, the new show has further honed Reynoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; patented comic-laidbare monologue style, delivering a show that almost seamlessly f lows from stand-up shtick (like his classic lounge-singer-paralyzedfrom-the-neck-up bit) to true-life storytelling (Reynolds displays one of the ski masks his bank-robbing step dad knitted while in prison) to snarkily intriguing philosophical observations (if you think Reynolds is pretty good looking, you are probably not such a prize yourself ). This new show is also brisker and performed without intermission. Fans of the original show will welcome the news that all the most talked-about bits are still in place, but the show is much fresher with the additional new material, smidgens of which have been borrowed from some of his other shows. The highlight of the night, and its surprisingly uplifting heart, is the moment where Reynolds lists all of the things that make his life worth living. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an inspiring roster, reminding us that in order to enjoy our lives, we need not have grand daily adventures or achieve great things. We need only recognize those things that give us pleasure. Always adept at thinking on his feet, Reynolds keeps loose enough on stage to sometimes improvise, reacting to front row facial expressions with wry commentary on the make-up of his audience. On a Thursday night last week, he even turned a slip-of-thetongue (replacing the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;partnerâ&#x20AC;? with â&#x20AC;&#x153;FARTnerâ&#x20AC;?) into a hilarious tangent (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad when the biggest laugh of your show is a mistake!â&#x20AC;?). Wherever this new funny and thoughtful evolution takes Reynolds, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in the game, good to see heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still outspoken and cynicalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but maybe a little more hopefulâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and still finding the funny in lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everyday truths. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Only the Truth is Funny: Mid-Life at the Oasisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Wednesday-Thursday through Aug. 6 at the Cinnabar Theater, 3333 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. $20-$25. 707.763.8920.

B_PRT <PS]Tbb There may be more than one man on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Moonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

By Richard von Busack

B

wear not by the inconsistent Moon, to paraphrase Shakespeare. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a vigorous internet campaign for Duncan Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; indie film, but if you ask â&#x20AC;&#x153;How good is Moon?â&#x20AC;? the reply has to be: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, how old are you?â&#x20AC;? This movie will make a bright, science fiction filmloving 15-year-old very happy. The novelty factor of Moon increases with the youth of the viewer, who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember movies like Dark Star or Outland, and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have no f licker of recognition when they hear the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rod Serling.â&#x20AC;? Filmic essays celebrate the director (Duncan Jones is David Bowieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son) as a man who brought the moon home for just $5 million. He did this with old-fashioned ideas like the use of miniatures and a lunar setâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a moonscape not any more convincing, but just as much fun, as the fake moon set

for the lunar module sequence in Diamonds Are Forever. But most of Moon takes place indoors in a few rooms in a space station. The idea of making space working-class, dirty and treacherous is likely enough. The results, however, are a film thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visually monotonous rather than hauntingly claustrophobic. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is a miner, assigned to a three-year shift on the dark side of the moon mining Helium-3. His only companion is a living computer named Gerty. The botâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s measured, ambiguous tones come from Kevin Spacey. Gertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weirdly chilling emoticon face, a corporate innovation to keep the long-term lunar employee tranquil, is Moonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single best idea. Sam is counting the days until he gets to go home, but things start to go wrong. Already, communications with the earth (and with his beloved wife) are fritzing out, and he sees strange glimpses of another figure through the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monitors. Eventually, after he crashes his lunar truck and wakes up in sickbay, Sam begins to feel heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not alone on the moon. A ghost, or a living doppelganger, must be aboard the dingy station with him. Unfortunately, Moon has Sam Rockwell acting by himself when history has proven that Rockwell is at his best as a sidekick; he needs other actors to bounce off of. Rockwell is a funny, shambling player, at his best in wildly comic and uncanny work, and very rich in deep space adventures like Galaxy Quest and A Hitchhikerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guide to The Galaxy. Acting by oneself in a room is a challenge to even the bestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what might work on stage gets tedious under a camera lens. Some fans of Moon argue that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the technique or the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s derivative sourcing that matters as much as what the film has to say about identity. It makes you wonder: how much science fiction writing do science fiction film fans read? They can claim that Moon raises tantalizing questions; sadly, the questions all have a pat answer, blown by most of the reviews to date. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a terrifying passage in T. S. Eliotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Waste Landâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;re-quoted by Jeffrey Lee Pierce in the Gun Club song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brother and Sisterâ&#x20AC;?: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is the third who walks always beside you? When I count there are only you and I together.â&#x20AC;? Eliot notes the lines â&#x20AC;&#x153;were stimulated by the account of one of the Antarctic expeditions . . . it was related that the party of explorers, at the extremity of their strength, had the constant delusion that there was one more member than could actually be counted.â&#x20AC;? As Eliot knew, this kind of frightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;being thousands of miles from anywhere and seeing a strange figure just out of the corner of the eyeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;can never find a resolution as satisfying as the setup. Moon is a horror story, despite the brave claims being made for its philosophical depths. Like all horror stories, it must face that terrible point where the audience demands a reasonable explanation for all of this. Ultimately, Jones gives us the reasonable explanation (corporate evil) but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supply a great final twist on a story that would have been deft at 60 minutes on The Outer Limits. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Moonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, July 10, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

Hat, Guitar, Boots Recently seen around these parts walking out of the theater halfway through the Merle Haggard/Kris Kristofferson show in Santa Rosa last month, Ramblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jack Elliott lives up to both definitions of his nickname. Talkative as hell, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been known to spend more time telling stories than singing music on stage, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rambled all around the mountains and tumbleweeds of this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one time even making up a missed show by calling the club and performing via phone booth. A former cowhand and early Dylan acolyte, the 77-year-old Elliott has ascended to the title of national treasure; he appeared with Bruce Springsteen at Pete Seegerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big birthday bash at Madison Square Garden earlier this year, and his latest album, A Stranger Here, is garnering rave reviews. He stops in for a special intimate show on Sunday, July 12, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8:30pm. $15-$20. 707.829.7300.

Hidden by Rags The Smiths are easily the most puzzling and improbable band to undertake for a tribute. How dare anyone place their own imprint on one of the most beloved and personal catalogues of recorded music form the last 30 years? Hundreds of Smiths cover songs have painfully and uselessly been foisted on the public with a 99 percent failure rate, and yet This Charming Band, a tribute to Morrissey, Marr, Rourke and Joyce, is a shocking triumph. This has much to do with the vocals of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Orlandissey,â&#x20AC;? who captures the most confounding aspect of the Smithsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Morrisseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly individual vocal inf lection and toneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with jaw-dropping precision. They headline an appropriately gloomy lineup with Luvâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Rockets (a Love and Rockets tribute band) and Dead Souls (a Joy Division tribute band) on Saturday, July 11, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 9:30pm. $7-$9. 707.545.2343.

Serfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Up Among the plentiful new crop of bands from the burgeoning Napa scene, Serf and James sticks out like a sweet, pleasant thumb. Often playing shows with louder, more abrasive bands, the young group is catchy and engaging enough to garner admiration from both teenaged screamo fans and older college-rock aficionados. Whether he knows it or not, singer Serf falls

somewhere between M. Ward and Ed Droste, with a voice that soars and contracts with such natural nuance and falsetto control over wellwritten songs that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonder his band is still playing local shows. Siloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has been wonderfully expanding their music schedule in recent months, and worth applause is the booking of Serf and James, appearing on Sunday, July 12, at Siloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jazz Club. 530 Main St., Napa. 5pm. Free. 707.251.5833.

Watermarked Skill Art Williams was a personal driver in Chicago who kept telling his client, a Hollywood producer, that he had a perfect story for a movie. The producer blew him off, hearing such pitches on a daily basis. But at the end of the week, he finally relented, and over lunch learned that Williams had been one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful counterfeiters in history, having faked over $10 million of currency with exacting attention to detail. Rolling Stone writer Jason Kersten was put on the case, and his resulting book, The Art of Making Money: The Story of a Master Counterfeiter, chronicles Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; materials and methodology as well as his eventual undoing. Added poignancy lies in the fact that the crackdown came not from Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; love of money but of family, in a search for his long-lost father. Kersten discusses this fascinating story on Saturday, July 11, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.

The Place to Be Dive bars are great and all, but for the young art-conscious crowd, a Corona poster with cleavage and booty shorts ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly Basquiat. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been meaning to sneak in a f lask from the corner store into the Sonoma Valley Museum of Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s puzzle exhibit, sneak no more! The museum offers liquor, music, dancing and a room full of twentysomethings checking out art (and each other) with Mix, an ongoing series of essential get-togethers for those in the know.

A>2:8=žC74<833;4A4027 Free music series at C. Donatiello Winery

ark in a gravel parking lot and walk up steps covered in herbs, crushed with each visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot. Take in the gardens, where everything is planted to evoke a certain taste or smell found in wine. On the back deck of the estateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guest house, find a . . . rock musician? This is Live at the Middle Reach, the summertime music series at C. Donatiello Winery, which provides further antidote to the old-guard notion of tasting rooms as stuffy parlors of condescension. The concerts have been well-attended, especially after Gomez frontman Ian Ball stopped by last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on his 33rd birthday. (Casual and loose, Ball invited the audience up from the scattered tables onto the stage, where dancing and singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Birthdayâ&#x20AC;? ensued amongst the Russian River Valley views.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that all these things go togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ďŹ ne wine, music, art,â&#x20AC;? says C. Donatielloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Conard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of these things are intertwined into the lifestyle that wine is all about. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too far removed from one another.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series kicked off with Maria Taylor, one-half of the Saddle Creek Records duo Azure Ray, and includes upcoming appearances by Summer Mencher, a ďŹ ne indie songwriter from San Diego (pictured above); Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carey Ott, signed to Dualtone records; the Dani Paige Band, fresh from opening for George Thorogood; Jason Damato, a feel-good Jack Johnson type; and Barba Shassus, a great band from Seattle that sounds a little like . . . well, Gomez, actually. A half-dozen or so other performers round out the summertime schedule, running through September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stylistically, we wanted to focus on music that was a little more of our generation,â&#x20AC;? Conard says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that was approachable to Gen Xers and Millenials and not exclusive of Baby Boomers.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Middle Reachâ&#x20AC;? descriptorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an old minerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s termâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was unearthed by Donatiello from the history books to designate a more speciďŹ c winegrowing region in the large Russian River AVA, says Conard. Amongst the C. Donatiello gardens and the guest houseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which doubles as the green room for performersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the setting is quintessentially wine country. This Sunday brings Fred Odell, a sandpaper-voiced songwriter inďŹ&#x201A;uenced by Neil Young and the Byrds, and who plays the hell out of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gallows Pole.â&#x20AC;? Buy a glass or three when he performs on Sunday, July 12, at C. Donatiello Winery. 4035 Westside Road, Healdsburg. 1pm. Free to patrons. 800.497.3376.

<T\^aXTb 5PST How Tears for Fears pulled themselves back together

By Gabe Meline

8

t was the end of the 1980s and Curt Smith from Tears for Fears had it all: a string of hit singles, his face all over MTV and hundreds of thousands of fans. And then, having lost his passion for music, he left it behind, packing up and moving to New York, leaving the other half of the band, Roland Orzabal, to carry on alone. With the band recently reunited and on the phone from his Los Angeles home, Smith considers what he and Orzabalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his best friend since age 13â&#x20AC;&#x201D;came to odds about almost 20 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably everything,â&#x20AC;? he states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we at odds about? I think musically we were starting to grow apart, and personallyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;absolutely, we were starting to grow apart as people.â&#x20AC;? Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure at the end of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s was a timely exit. Tears for Fears virtually defined â&#x20AC;&#x153;out of placeâ&#x20AC;? in the image-obsessed, Flock of Seagulls-laden 1980s pop hit sphere. With their biggest hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shoutâ&#x20AC;? based on the primal scream therapy of Arthur Janov; with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woman in Chainsâ&#x20AC;? the most effective feminist statement of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s written by a man; with their 1985 album Songs From the Big Chair named for a miniseries on associative identity disorder, the band always inspired a deeper intellectual connection than most â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s fluff.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really write love songs,â&#x20AC;? Smith says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They normally involve politics or personal politics, and by that I mean psychology, to some degree; relationships, to some degree. There has to be some sort of meaning in it for usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;otherwise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pointless exercise. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just how we are as people. And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that anyone has to understand it.â&#x20AC;? Of course, in 1985, everyone understood Tears for Fears. Flush with the No. 1 success of hits like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody Wants to Rule the Worldâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Head Over Heels,â&#x20AC;? the two entered the studio for a follow-up, The Seeds of Love, further tipping the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political slant. Most who heard the catchy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sowing the Seeds of Loveâ&#x20AC;? playing on every radio in 1989 might have been surprised to actually read the lyrics, liberally peppered with references to government corruption, starvation, education and greed. The album also explored music outside their synth-pop safety zone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We toured America quite a lot during that period,â&#x20AC;? Smith explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we started to learn more about American music. If you listen to the Seeds of Love album, you can hear bits of Little Feat, you can hear, in the case of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Woman in Chains,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a bit more gospel, a bit more soul. Steely Dan, even. And this was the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really listened to this kind of music. In England, it would never get played anywhere.â&#x20AC;? The album made a splash, but musical and personal differences took their tollâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially, Smith says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re living in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pockets every day of the week because of work.â&#x20AC;? After the split, Orzabal kept the Tears for Fears name for 1993â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elemental, an underrated gem in the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timeline that included a scathing song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fish Out of Water,â&#x20AC;? transparently aimed at Smith and his decision to leave. Orzabal sings: â&#x20AC;&#x153;And on the crucifix his mother made / Hangs one more martyr to the hit parade / Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dreaming your life away.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was quite amusing,â&#x20AC;? Smith says of the song today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a song obviously written out of anger. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d left the band, he was pissed off, and fair enough.â&#x20AC;? (Smith recorded a response, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sun King,â&#x20AC;? on his next solo album.) Years laterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after a Gary Jules cover of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mad Worldâ&#x20AC;? from the film Donnie Darko slowly became a red-hot hit, and before Kanye West sampled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Memories Fadeâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Orzabal asked to meet with Smith, the two had dinner, and the next thing they knew theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recorded a major comeback album, appropriately titled Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, replete with a buoyant, vintage feel. Pleasantly surprising even the most trepid fans, Happy Ending manages to retain a classic Tears for Fears sound without sounding formulaic or contrived. A successful tour followed, the two get along again, and Smith says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost just like old times. As for the vindictive songs they once wrote for each other? Water under the bridge, says Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even though he still feels he got in a humorous last word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fish Out of Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; thing was a little obtuse,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And my song was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fat.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Artists refashion what has been left behind hen Ahna Adair found an abandoned cardboard box in the lobby of her S.F. apartment building, she looked inside. The box contained the full makings of a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suit, circa early 1960, replete with paper pattern and a particularly vicious brown, orange and green tweed fabric. Adair has since exhaustively examined her neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unwanted clothing, laying it and photographing its components, unraveling and reweaving the thread onto sterling silver spools, using the remade thread to trace the patternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pattern onto the wall, felting components of the dreaded tweed into discs, making sterling silver buttons from â&#x20AC;&#x153;extraâ&#x20AC;? tweed, separating the suitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grim spectrum into disparate color piles, making cardboard cutouts of the original pattern pieces. . . phew.

W

Adairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thorough investigation is one part of â&#x20AC;&#x153;(RE)Consider,â&#x20AC;? a group exhibit of recent MFA graduates working with found items curated by artist Cameron Kelly and showing at ArtSpace404 through July 16. On Saturday, July 11, Kelly and co-exhibitors Adair, Alicia Escott, Julia Goodman and Amy Keefer host a slumber party in the exhibit space. Exhorting those who are game to bring unfinished projects in all media and even long-neglected mending jobs, the artists intend to sit up all night working before hitting the floor with sleeping bags. Those who are tempted to this party will be rewarded by spending time in the gallery space. Kelly takes the language of fashion and applies it to a tree limb she rescued from the side of the road and placed on leather and satin pillows (above). Rocks she has found are cosseted in remade fabric â&#x20AC;&#x153;packages,â&#x20AC;? zippered or buckled up and placed on hand-hewn benches or wheeled platformsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all accompanied by zippy text lampooning our serious devotion to frivolous human endeavors and neglect of the ripe beauty of the natural world. Julian Goodman has documented her grief over her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death by using the 11 monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of junk mail his address continued to receive after his passing and pulping it into sculpture. On an adjacent wall, Alicia Escott has drawn images of wild animals taken from old National Geographic magazines onto mattress bags and Stella McCartney cornbased shopping bag, the art guaranteed to disintegrate before the baggies do. Amy Keefer obsessively crochets her boyfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s used tank tops into their own private language when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not crocheting metal in response to the rise and fall of the gold market. These women are smart. ArtSpace404 hosts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfinished Projectsâ&#x20AC;? overnight on July 11 from 4pm. 404 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. Free. 707.579.2787.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lewis and Damien Jay Settle bring flavor to the Schulz Museum nhappy Pear is heartbroken after finding out her partner, Banana, is having an affair with Kumquat. A mug with the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love youâ&#x20AC;? written on it tells the story of young coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shallow and doomed relationship, and the salvaging of self that comes from its ending. Apple, desperate for a vacation, leaves for Florida on his own where he spends a magical evening with the band The Hot Pocketz. He returns home to write them e-mails filled with lonely longing. When he gets the response he has been waiting for, it is a generic fan newsletter.

Cartoonist Melanie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mintyâ&#x20AC;? Lewis of PS Comics and her cartoonist husband Damien Jay of The Natural World will be at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center on Saturday, July 11. As part of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing artistin-residence program, the two will be drawing, available to chat and sharing their creative and interesting work. Lewis, who says that she â&#x20AC;&#x153;enjoys Peanuts very much,â&#x20AC;? has come to appreciate the darkness of Schulzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. Speaking by phone from her Berkeley home, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can appreciate a goofy story, but comics take so much effort and time. It is important to me to make a connection with people.â&#x20AC;? Her endearing characters, though usually nonhuman, reflect the complexities of the shared human experience. Lewis creates art that is playful and fun, lovable and heartbreaking. She taps into who we are by paying attention. Her stories, she says, come â&#x20AC;&#x153;from different places. I take dialogue from things I over hear, by observing how people think about themselves. One kernel gets me thinking.â&#x20AC;? When a friend secretly submitted one of Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comics for the prestigious Ignatz Award for outstanding mini-comic, she won. She remembers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt good. Cartooning is a lonely craft. I get so engaged with the paper and stories, it felt good to know people are enjoying and reading them.â&#x20AC;? A saltshaker learns the trick to happiness, a quiet receptionist is stirred by the attention of a coworker and an apple writes to deal with lossâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;these short stories are poignant, thoughtful and important. Melanie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mintyâ&#x20AC;? Lewis and Damian Jay appear on Saturday, July 11, at the Schulz Museum. 2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa. 1pm to 3pm. Free with $5-$8 admission. 707.579.4452.

Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Barefootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a strong showcase ll playwrights, including the great ones, have one thing in common: a first play. For Tennessee Williams, it was Candles to the Sun. For Arthur Miller, it was They Too Arise. With very few exceptions, most playwrights donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a mark until their third, fourth or fifth plays, with the early work all but entirely forgotten and rarely, if ever, performed. Neil Simon is the exception. Though one could argue he is not on the same level as Williams or Miller, Simon has it over them in that he struck a chord with his very first play, Barefoot in the Park. And, while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone on to write dozens of other plays, many of them quite famous and loaded with awards, that first play has hardly been forgotten, and is still performed with remarkable regularity today, 48 years after it was first staged. It is easy to see why.

A

As evidenced in its funny, fast-paced production as part of Summer Repertory Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current five-show season, Barefoot is not just a play about newlyweds grappling with the manic-depressive promise of a full new life, it is itself full of promise, heralding the arrival of a playwright with a lovingly skewed view of the modern human condition. In the SRT production, friskily directed by Shad Willingham, this promise is fully embodied by Nicole Erb as the newlywed Corie Bratter. Corie, after just six days married to rising attorney Paul Bratter (Joshua Roberts) has taken to matrimony the way happy cultists take to religious conversion, reveling in every mundane detail of domestic life as she waits for the phone to be installed in the tiny fifth-floor walk-up she will share with Paul. In that opening scene, with a nice turn by Kit Grimm as the wise phone technician, the apartment itself (kudos to scenic designer Kerry Lee Chipman) is established as a full character in the comedy, with its own set of quirks and idiosyncrasies. As Paul, Roberts gives a pleasantly baffled performance, hilariously blending stiff uptightness with wide-eyed amazement. The story is slight, as Corieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overly-optimistic embrace of her new life hits some snags when she realizes that her new husband isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as free and wild as she is, but as a showcase for the work of a talented director and castâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and especially Erbâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this â&#x20AC;&#x153;promisingâ&#x20AC;? work by Simon is a sweet-hearted delight. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Barefoot in the Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs through Aug. 5 at the Newman Auditorium on the SRJC campus, 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. $10-$25. 707.527.4343.
