Literature is dead, and so are you By C. E. McAuley

;

iterature is dead. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been said for years about the novel, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely true. So what. Literature died a long time ago along with any concept of a shared cultural identity over the nature of art. The last writer was Kurt Vonnegut. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dead. Fine. In his absence, and in retrospect, I and others celebrate Don DeLilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s White Noise as a sort of postcultural literature that captures the essence of Baudrillardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Simulacra and Simulation. So ultimately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really a problem that literature is dead so much that culture is decaying with the ever increasing speed of a pesky outbreak of necrotic skin. There are writers around today who keep killing literature, writing and the arts in general with the blunt object of their words, but they will remain nameless because they often tour the area and are promoted by this publication. I know the usual suspects, the names that aficionados of this postliterature will cite when declaring me to be out of touch. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine, too. The problem for writers is actually readers. And, of course, the fact that many writers no longer read. Did Oprahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Book Club save literature? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s between you and your god. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been one for book clubs myself or clubs of writers getting together to discuss their work. But there are still real readers. And real writers. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide. I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scary out there. Literatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s further decomposition often occurs in the classroom. It takes a rare and inspiring K-12 teacher to nurture the type of love of reading necessary to create the great readers that great literatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebirth requires. Literature might also meet a quick death in a college English courseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;though that, too, can become a place for inspiration and great passion under the proper conditions. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not even sure that I should care that literature and culture are dead. Some would argue, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, you see, literature and culture are not dead; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the literature and art of the dominant culture, which held hegemony over the rest of us for so long, that are. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been liberated into a nation of subcultures. There is no main culture. Hooray!â&#x20AC;? To this I would reply that I am mostly talking about people being able to read and write a coherent sentence, a sentence that also has some meaning behind it, that has some

relevance to aspects of the human experience we all share. But, my detractors would argue, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not supposed to be universal meaning anymore. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about what it means to you. Fine. So after Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thrown my radio out the window, bashed my TV in with a giant mallet and unplugged my computerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least until I need to update my blog and check my Facebook page so I can get all the relevant information I need about â&#x20AC;&#x153;myâ&#x20AC;? worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be left with a house that only has a bunch of books in it. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just be left with a couple of Vonneguts and a tattered copy of DeLillo. And Roberto BolaĂąo (yes, you need to read 2666). Perhaps Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m generalizing a bit. But every time I leave the theater, for instance, I can only think to myself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How often can revivals be revived? When is it time to pronounce that modern American theater, along with literature, deserves a trip to Dignitas to enjoy some death with dignity, like a terminally ill patient allowed the hemlock while he can still swallow of his own volition?â&#x20AC;? It may be time to reassess. Some think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a reactionary. Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true. Some would call my comments elitist, deranged, idiotic or wrong. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll accept any of those terms without much concern, and might, a few moments from now, agree with them. But until then I say literature is dead. I say culture is dead. And I say you are too. And so am I. Because if our spirits cannot be inspired to the heights of human possibility anymore, if all weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good for is being the food for global capitalism in a post-9-11 world, if nothing really matters except what you think matters, then nothing really matters. There are universal humanist values lurking beneath the surface ready to revive American culture and the American spirit or, perhaps more broadly, the human spirit. But you have to go and look for them and live them. Then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying. Until then, I say literature is dead. Except for what I write.

The problem for writers is actually readers.

34?C>5CDA=CDA=CDA= They say that all good things must end, and while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never exactly really believed that, it appears to occasionally be true. To wit: After almost eight proud years as editor of the Bohemian, I am stepping down to pursue a new avenue and to stoke a new passion. This issue is my last at the helm. Associate editor Gabe Meline has wisely been tapped to fill my wrecked cowboy boots, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll assume the position immediately, bringing his considerable intelligence, energy and abilities to the gig. I started at this paper some 17 years ago, when it was newly called the Sonoma County Independent. I opened the mail and did the calendar and bugged then-editor Greg Cahill about stories I thought he should do. He finally collapsed under the weight of my badgering and sent me out to do a story on a dance instructor at Sonoma State.

The second story he gave me was an interview with Yoko Ono. Yokoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people offered 15 minutes on the phone, but the two of us talked for over an hour about the greatest public love affair of the 20th century. The resulting story got me a staff job, and up I went, quitting only when it seemed that the editor wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to give me his job, too. I came rushing back in December 2003 when that chair came open again. Serving an educated, erudite, arts-positive, newshungry community is an immense pleasure. Helping to shape this community, inform this community and take part in this community is an honor that I relish almost savagely. Helping to grow writers is a part of the job so delicious that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but crow with the pride I feel to have recruited and mentored Gabe Meline, Alastair Bland, Daedalus Howell, James Knight, Suzanne Daly and Heather Irwin. I am enormously grateful to

Winning awards is just plain fun, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a ton of that since I became ed. Winning an NEA fellowship as I did last year is an immodest triumph. Being on the KRSH 95.9-FM each Wednesday morning is a kick. Hosting our writing contest winners in my home is a marvel, as is baking cakes for strangers, having the Boho contributors over for a chili party at my house each winter and working in a part of the office weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve renamed the Love Level (replete with secret hand signs). But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not just leaving the edit hole, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving the people, too. Copy editor Gary Brandt is the paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moral center and the wit who devised our occasional Bloomsday pranks. Cal Queen Kate Polacci could not be more dedicated. Executive ed Dan Pulcrano gave me a chance. Publisher Rosemary Olson respects the productâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s integrity utterly, a rarity in a publisher; and director Lisa Santos is our fiscal engine; sales reps Leslie Kenhart, Mercedes Murolo and Susan Sulc are our saviors. Designers Jackie Mujica and Mark Schaumann, Tabi Dolan and Kara Brown have made making us look good look easy. Harry Allison, Mercy Perez and Sean George get us printed. And not a darned thing would ever happen without Ashley Lazowski. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d miss all of this a lot more if I werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so secure in Gabe Melineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent and ability to continue the Bohemianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upward arc. Gabe was doing the calendar when I arrived some 17 years ago, leaving because he was just 18 and his punk band had won a slot on the Vanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Warped Tour. He trained me how to do the calendar before he left. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve trained him how to be the editor as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve prepared to leave. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come full circle. This paper is at its best when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guided by people who love it. This paper will continue, therefore, to be at its best. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll certainly continue to love it.

F8==4AB Educator Mark Collin has developed a new method of teaching K-6 students that is based on nurturing emotional intelligence.

Mark Collin wants a Toolbox for every child By Jessica Dur

n 1993, Mark Collin walked into Cazaderoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Montgomery Elementary School expecting to spend a few months accruing hours as a school counselor. A longtime student of Jungian and transpersonal psychology, Collin was interning at the Lomi Psychotherapy Clinic to become a licensed marriage and family therapist. Thirty-five years since his own stint in elementary school, he was shocked at the normalized cruelty he witnessed. Older kids were literally putting younger kids headfirst into trash cans while under-resourced teachers struggled to cope. Collin, who spent two of his college years living alone while building a cabin in the Mendocino redwoods, realized that the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to â&#x20AC;&#x153;literacyâ&#x20AC;? was too narrow. He started asking questions. How

can kids learn reading and algebra if they are distracted by their own self-defeating behaviors? How can students be expected to thrive academically if they are suffering emotionally and socially? According to Collin, the answers came from the students themselves. He saw they needed to calm down. Starting in the safety of the kindergarten class, he sat with them in a circle on the floor and asked them to breathe. Thus was born the first of 12 â&#x20AC;&#x153;toolsâ&#x20AC;? designed to activate the innate wisdom inside each person. The breathing tool is a simple reminder that our most basic instinctual habit can bring relief. From that starting point, Collin developed an entire â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toolbox,â&#x20AC;? a curriculum for social and emotional learning whose mission, he says, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;to build childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity and resilience for learning through development of personal awareness, self-

mastery and empathy for others.â&#x20AC;? Collinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;few monthsâ&#x20AC;? at Montgomery soon stretched into nine years. People have long challenged Descartesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rationalist â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, therefore I amâ&#x20AC;? philosophy in favor of a more holistic view of what it means to be alive. In the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, Daniel Golemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s groundbreaking book Emotional Intelligence, which challenged the sanctity of the IQ as the measure of success in life, spent a year and a half on the New York Times bestseller list. Studies were conducted to show that social and emotional learning, which incorporate â&#x20AC;&#x153;self-awareness, selfmanagement, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making,â&#x20AC;? are fundamental aspects of a high-functioning school or work environment. Even the federal government is taking notice. Currently, HR 4223, the Academic, &&

The tools are based on action, a psychosomatic approach that recognizes the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to soothe the mind and spirit. Collin believes that the sacred should not be just â&#x20AC;&#x153;an idea, but an experience.â&#x20AC;? The listening tool teaches kids to listen with their ears, eyes and hearts, reading body language and facial expressions to help, Collin says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;hear between the lines.â&#x20AC;? The garbage-can tool reminds us that we are free to let go of other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meanness, free to be actors, not re-actors, in our own lives. In many schools, this common language has become the basis for students to communicate their feelings.

The Toolbox curriculum is currently being taught in both English and Spanish in 26 secular and nonsecular schools in Sonoma, Marin and Butte counties. The curriculum recently received a large grant from the pro-education Stuart Foundation, and even television producers see potential programs. Bonnie Benard, a national resiliency expert, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of all the programs on the federal list, [Toolbox] is the only one that teaches children about their own resilience.â&#x20AC;? Recently, WestEd, a long-standing educational research nonprofit, conducted a 16-week study in the Wright Elementary School District of Santa Rosa, which utilizes Toolbox training. In K-3 classes they found significant measurable progress in several areas, including autonomy, self-management, problem solving, classroom behavior and improved family relations. But those are still only numbers. The real evidence comes, as usual, from the students themselves. As one fourth grader put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toolbox is like having a school inside you. If you use them, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good.â&#x20AC;? Seventeen years after creating the Toolbox with that initial pilot group at Montgomery, Collin reunited with several of the students, curious about the longitudinal implications of the curriculum. Now in their late teens, these students could not always recall Collin himself, but they remembered what he taught them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These tools are just small chisels and lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big granite block, and little by little, we get better at it,â&#x20AC;? mused one boy. Another 18-year-old admitted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the Toolbox, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be in the penitentiary. I absolutely would be.â&#x20AC;?

ate in Fortune’s Fool: Edgar Bronfman Jr., Warner Music, and an Industry in Crisis, author Fred Goodman details the plight of songwriter and producer Pete Waterman. Waterman was Brit crooner Rick Astley’s collaborator on the now-infamous 1987 hit “Never Gonna Give You Up.” The tune is the punch line to the long-running gag of Rickrolling. (To the unrolled, “Rickrolling” is when someone sends you a link you believe to be relevant only to discover that it leads to Astley’s music video on YouTube.) Waterman later claimed in an editorial that the video has been seen 150 million times on the videosharing site, which eventually cut him a royalty check for £11, or $17.48 at present writing. How is it Waterman’s work yielded such a pittance? Credit the Byzantine calculus of royalty schedules. Worse, YouTube insisted that the “exposure” the song gained would surely result in income from other avenues. “That’s BS,” Waterman countered. “Nobody buys music they can get for free on sites like YouTube.” Unlike Waterman, services that serve the independent music community like Tunecore, CD Baby and Bandcamp have found ways to contort YouTube and other social media into their business models. At the top of Bandcamp’s website is the tag, “In the past 30 days alone, artists have made $374,714 USD.” This sum is shared by Bandcamp’s entire roster of artists, including superstar cellist Zoe Keating, who recently quipped during an interview on KQED’s “Forum” program that she purchased a “dilapidated house” from her online earnings. Keating’s real estate aside, the fact is, she does make a living proffering music live and online while deftly leveraging social media marketing and online distribution. When host Michael Krasny pointed out that not all artists are as entrepreneurial as she, Keating swiftly replied, “They should be.” Whereas a decade ago “entrepreneurial” was a euphemism for “selling out,” it’s now regarded as integral to an artist’s success as traditional opportunities disappear. Strategies include packaging “artisanal” releases of vinyl, posters and other ephemera paired with download codes to licensing music directly to brands in commercials. As Ben Sisario recently wrote in the New York Times, “Lifestyle brands are becoming the new record labels.” Indeed, Converse is opening a recording studio in

Brooklyn where bands can record for free, and Mountain Dew releases MP3s on its own record label, Green Label Sound. As a project for FMRL, the Future Media Research Lab (this columnist’s media think tank qua branded-entertainment startup), we are experimenting with a variety of music monetization schemes all at once. The question is: “Can we create an act, cut a track, package it in a concept attractive to a brand and see it through to profitability?” We started with the music, which came via Penngrove-raised singersongwriter Orion Letizi and multiplatinum producer Jason Carmer, whose credits include work with the Donnas, Chumbawamba and Run DMC, among others. How did we get a mega-producer? We emailed him and asked. As Carmer comments on Ear Whacks, a musicthemed video blog, “You can actually work with a lot of really good producers now because there’s nothing going on. There are a lot of guys just sitting around trying to make the transition.” Carmer suggests that producer talent is available to new artists at lower fees for reasons as obvious as the economy to the reality that labels no longer pursue the musical styles that interest them most. Next we wrapped Letizi’s ’80s-inspired ditty “Yeah, We Know” into a narrative that could support several episodes of a web series. The pitch: “Four Sonoma State students enlist in a sociological experiment that finds them sealed in a biodome. They form a band and hope to sell enough music and merch online to buy out their contract.” We cast local twenty-something actors for the “band,” shot and edited a video, then shopped it to several brands until one bit—a foods company, which came in as a sponsor and whose product will be seamlessly integrated into upcoming storylines. The video, Still in the Dome, features a shorter mix of the tune and is free. The “album mix” of the song is available for paid download. Will it work? Perhaps. All creative contributors have already been paid—a triumph in itself. A case study of the experiment will be published at FMRL.com next month. In the meantime, the music industry should know, we’re never gonna give you up.

New report lays groundwork for Sonoma and Marin sustainability

By Juliane Poirier

0

ttention North Bay: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vital Changeâ&#x20AC;? has arrived, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get your eyes on it! Not only is a report of that name newly released, but its contents live up to the title in at least two radical ways. First, those of us (painfully) familiar with committee reports will be stunned to find that this 44-page write-up by the Commission on a Green New Deal for the North Bay isâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;drum roll, pleaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; thoughtfully transparent and pleasurable to read. Yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I said. Parts are even fun to read. The radical part here is that this succinct, clearly written report is accessible to everyone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a grassroots investigation into a local green economy. Not the business-asusual approach. Oldschool methods for dealing with economic decision-making pushed the public out of the room and shut down dialogue with eye-glazing sentences glued together with obscure words no one uses in conversation. (Hey, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that how the banks got all that power?) But this document comes from locals who love the North Bay; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a jargon-free narrative that speaks in the voice of those who live here. Fully titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vital Change: Reconsidering Water, Food, Conservation, Healthcare and Commerce,â&#x20AC;? this report invites everyone into a well-told story about the elements of our lives we must look at together. Those behind the report are locals pursuing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;civic initiative to transform Marin and Sonoma counties into a more resilient regionâ&#x20AC;? that is sustainable economically, socially and environmentally. They are pro-local, pro-community members who say that â&#x20AC;&#x153;history shows us that the collective genius of communities is powerful and effective when harnessed by people working together.â&#x20AC;? In this refreshing narrative, we read our own Sonoma-Marin survival story with good and evil elements, a work-in-progress as told by hundreds of residents who attended eight public forums in Santa Rosa, San Rafael, Novato, Petaluma, Mill Valley, Sonoma, Point Reyes Station and Sea Ranch. Our story was further told by experts at hearings during the 18-month investigative process, which peered into even the most challenging arenas, such as

local poverty and economic justice. The language in this report is downto-earth and not at all like a government document, where the words are so pummeled by the cultures of law, engineering and the politics of obscurity that hardly anyone understands them. Instead we find gems like this one: â&#x20AC;&#x153;All life on earth is connected through water; we should use it with respect for its life-sustaining gift.â&#x20AC;? Once direct, inclusive language has been allowed in a document, empty formality falls away, feeling and thinking are engaged equally and real exchange can occur. It is always language that decides who gets included or excluded from a discussion. The second delightfully radical aspect of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vital Changeâ&#x20AC;? is the lucid presentation of complex issues. For example, the section on civic currencyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;my favorite partâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;elegantly sums up the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core social problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quality of life and basic living needs of those who are not in line to gain from [current] business models are sacrificed to the pursuit of profit by those in positions of economic power. The have-nots are payingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with their health, wellbeing and sometimes their very livesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to support the overconsuming lifestyles of the haves.â&#x20AC;? There are seven pages of thoughtful local approaches to this problem provided by the people who live here, people from all walks of life who participated in the discussion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good start. Please read this report. Use it at town council meetings. Offer it as a wedding gift. Put a copy in your doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting room, on your auntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffee table, in the hands of your mayor. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the distillation of local thoughts, brainstorms, statistics and yearnings. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study it together and pursue the collective genius among us.

We read our own SonomaMarin survival story with good and evil elements, a workin-progress as told by hundreds of residents.

<40CC74<0E4= Santa Rosa author Marissa Guggiana doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind stirring the pot when it comes to ag politics.

3^f]c^cWT1^]T Butchery authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate lesson? Eat less meat By Gabe Meline

F

hen Marissa Guggiana approached the barn on that Monday morning in Virginia, she could hear the sound of a pig screaming. Inside was the butcher she had been looking for, Joel Salatin, in the messy, squirmy throes of castrating a pig. When he finally noticed Guggiana, he walked over and threw a pair of fresh testicles at her feet, sticking out his hand. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to shake it. Such are the adventures of one who dedicates a year to researching a book about the act of cutting up animals. After 11,000 miles of driving around the country to meet with 50 butchers, after seeing and slicing and cooking and eating more cow and pig and lamb parts than one can imagine, the Santa Rosa author has delivered the definitive guide to the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carvers with the new hardcover Primal Cuts: Cooking with Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Butchers (Welcome Books; $37.50). Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come away with an unexpected conclusion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I got out of it,â&#x20AC;? she says matter-offactly over lunch at local vegetarian cafe, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is that everyone needs to eat less meat.â&#x20AC;? Such a statement might be surprising to those who know Guggiana from her roles as an editor at Meatpaper magazine and president of meat supplier Sonoma Direct, but the self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;meat mavenâ&#x20AC;? sees eating meat responsibly as imperative to the cause of better food systems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beef and pork

are so taxing to the environment, and we already eat way more than we need. If we were five-day-a-week vegetarians, we could eat really good meat on the weekends,â&#x20AC;? she says, drizzling dressing on her salad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to eat it with every meal.â&#x20AC;? The irony is that Primal Cuts inspires a desire to eat little else. At 287 pages and roughly as weighty as a rack of lamb, housed in a butcherpaper jacket, the book is full of butcher profiles, recipes, tips, philosophies and information along with hundreds of incredible photos. Consider it a primer on the recent butcher-as-rock-star phenomenon, which, like the bacon-on-everything trend, even Guggiana predicts may run its course soon. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The shark is leaving the water,â&#x20AC;? she deadpans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to jump.â&#x20AC;?) Along with Italyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed Dario Cecchini, who supplies the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreword, and Brooklynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elevated Tom Mylan, San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Chris Cosentino is among the more high-profile butchers in the book, mainly due to his work with offal. Cosentinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ill-fitting role as a Food Network poster boy for the macho meat brigade is downplayed in Primal Cuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really gets characterized as this fetishistic obsession with eating food thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a dare, or eating gross things or eating so much meat,â&#x20AC;? Guggiana says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I find all that really grotesque. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really about that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Look, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this whole animal. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s find ways to use it that are delicious and amazing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pig earsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just put â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em on the George Foreman and

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delicious; you have to cook those things for 48 hours before they stop tasting like sewage.â&#x20AC;? Another San Francisco butcher, Tia Harrison, represents the growing population of female butchers. Guggiana and Harrison have cofounded the Butchers Guild, a network they hope will evolve into a national trade organization for selftaught butchers to learn from each other and to create a direct line from butcher to consumer. Most butchers in Primal Cuts are on board already. Guggiana already has two more books planned about restaurants and farming, and if the process of writing them is anything like that of Primal Cuts, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll involve driving up to 600 miles a day, staying in familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farmhouses, waiting for unemployment checks to arrive, going on dates with butchers who turn out to be married (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ugh. That was lameâ&#x20AC;?) and, yes, getting her hands covered in testicular residue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also,â&#x20AC;? she adds, slowly working on the last of her salad, â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to convince people that they need to spend more money on good meat. It costs what it costs. Land is expensive, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expensive to raise these animals, so whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the solution? Eat less of it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it.â&#x20AC;? Marissa Guggiana answers every question youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had about meat, and Osteria Stellinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christian Caiazzo prepares a five-course nose-to-tail meal of local meat and produce on Tuesday, Nov. 9, at Osteria Stellina. 11285 Hwy. 1, Pt. Reyes Station. 7pm. $75. 415.663.1542.

C8<48B =>F Splitting his time between Guerneville and Manhattan, restaurant consultant Clark Wolf graces these pages with Napkin Notes. Clark Wolf is the host of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food with Clark Wolfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on TV 50 KFTY Santa Rosa. was amused and upset a while back when the local daily saw ďŹ t to give major headline news coverage to a newly opened organic farm in Rutherford. This is news? Well, OK. As I used to say, if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for Sonoma County, Napa couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cook lunch! So the addition of a thoughtfully tended plot amid the moguls and monoculture certainly adds something valuable. Now, Napa County agricultural commissioner Dave Whitmer, with support from the local Farm Bureau as well as grape growers, vintners and something called the Napa Local Food Group, are all talking about ways to rebalance the mix even more by highlighting the near ubiquity of kitchen gardens on winery lands, often only used for staff meals and special events. Many folks think it might be a great idea to grow and sell more of those colorful fruits and veggies at farm stands along the vinery-cultural highway.

But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the rub: Are Round Up-tidied pathways going to lead us towards something good to eat? This is a fascinating moment for food in America. A halfbillion factory farm eggs had to be scrambled because they were salmonella-infested. Beef producers are ďŹ ghting common-sense safety regulations while questionable patties are recalled for the wrong sort of E. coli. Organic strawberries have ďŹ nally been certiďŹ ed as deďŹ nitely more nutritious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly all a good conversation and a worthy battle for what we eat. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ďŹ nally managed to put food at the top of our â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Know and to Doâ&#x20AC;? lists where it belongs, but just how far will trendy, hipster farmers, gossipy food bloggers and TV-ready chefs take us? Do we have the will and the time to really dig inâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;go ahead and embrace the expressionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and calm down? Does the current economy give us much of a choice? The answer is in the action, and the time is certainly now. A major cultural recalibration is in full swing, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harvest season is more precious and profound than many before, with a clear road map to what lies ahead. Savor every berry. Hug a farmer twice, and maybe get some chickens for the backyard. Celebrate every meal with dear family and real friends. And perhaps even help demystify nature for a few folks here and there.

@D6?9

A>037>DB4 F8=4AH olor me antique, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just now learning what in tarnation this Rock Band game is all about. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about being a musician, explains Eric, one of two Erics who run this juke joint; the playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only got to press the ďŹ&#x201A;ashing buttons at the right time. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of like some boutique wine outďŹ ts, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Buy a rock-star consultant, press the right buttons, and the crowds will cheer. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the game at Roadhouse. A brief look around conďŹ rms that, although this Eric has the good sense to keep his day job in banking, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the process and not the image that got him into wine, and gets him down to the cellar all hours of the day or night to do the punch downs. Strictly analog.

C

Located in a modest light industrial/ofďŹ ce park at the quiet, dead end of North Street, but just blocks from Cyrus Restaurant, Roadhouse is set up like a casual clubhouse. There, at the end of a simple, wood plank bar set upon wine barrels, a drum kit and electric guitar controllers stand ready to Rock Band under a wall-mounted ďŹ&#x201A;at screen. Karaokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an option for nonnimble-ďŹ ngered crooners, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a red felt table for billiard players and deep sofas abound for the rest of the crew to lounge on. Nominally open daily, it may be best to call ahead, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to bring a group. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a popular limo tour stop at the end of the day, no doubt because the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasted their way into that karaoke mind space. Actually, insists Eric, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because their wines will show up all the others. The 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ($49) has a hint of toast, a bit of Grand Marnier and some weedy notes, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly soft raspberry-cherry fruit and medium-light bodied. The 2008 Dry Creek Valley Grenache must have been good, because it sold out. Meanwhile, the 2008 RRV Zinfandel ($29) can still be enjoyed for the same price: look for warm, baked goods aroma of fresh cranberry mufďŹ ns, with a soft palate of red cherry fruit in this clean and very appealing Zin. The warm, easy-drinking 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bucket Blendâ&#x20AC;? Red Wine ($29) ďŹ nishes a lot softer than some Zin, Carignane and Alicante Bouschet mixers, but then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oddball Monduese in there, too. New for 2010, some wines will be made in the Roadhouse using an open-top fermenter sharing space with the game room. No jump shots, please. Roadhouse, 107-B W. North St., Healdsburg. Open Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Thursday, noon to 6pm; Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, noon to 7pm. Call to conďŹ rm. No tasting fee. 707.922.6362. This weekend, Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;24, Roadhouse presents the Pinot on the River festival, featuring a walkaround of over a hundred top West Coast Pinot producers. $75.

2PaXQQTP]2adXbT I used a short length of rope to tie the door closed. Blood, which looked dried and brown on my skin, was a slick, crimson smear across the ropeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s white knots. I tied it as tight as I could with one hand, looping it through the handrail affixed to the wall. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d found the rope below deck in a small kitchen area. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been given a tour when I first boarded back in Miami, but I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paid attention. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just nodded and tried to keep my balance as we bobbed in the harbor. My job was going to be simple: Film the crew bringing up the

treasure. Get all the faked oohs and aahs from a couple of students and interns who had already seen the bits of pottery and gold coins via the diversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; underwater camera weeks ago. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do some talking head shots with the archeologists in their wetsuits, get some establishing shots of the boat, etc. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be exciting work, but Nat Geo signed my checks and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d film whatever academic dog and pony show they assigned me to film. Had that really been yesterday? Had I really stood inside this door yesterday morning,

squeezing cold globs of sunscreen onto my arms, my face? Pissed that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d forgotten a hat? I could see my yesterday self from the outside, like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d filmed it, but my mind couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take me back to it happening. Still, I could smell the faint scent of coconut oil beneath the layers of fear and blood that drenched me, and I knew it had been real. All of it. I pulled on the rope to make sure it was still tight. It was. My breathing was steadier, no more of those painful gasps. The blood stopped oozing from the wound in my side THE BOHEMIAN

during the night. It hurt less when I kept my hand tight over it. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if that was a good thing or not. I pulled again. The rope was fine. The rope was fine. It would keep the door closed, at least for a few minutes. Long enough for me to jump overboard. I turned my back to the door and slid down to the deck, careful to keep myself from twisting too much. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d need to get something to drink soon. There was a pallet of bottled water on the port side, next to the plastic bins of seawater intended for the artifacts. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to step over two of the bodies to get thereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the blonde intern with the pierced eyebrow, Tara, and one of the deckhands whose name I never learned. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he spoke English. It had been Tara whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d told me. As I checked the battery on my camera, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d leaned over the railing watching as the divers disappeared beneath the water into the darkness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technically, this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a shipwreck. It was sunk on purpose. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be cursed, you know. The gold.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d smiled at me.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Rebecca Wetzel

BXbcTab Skipper stands on the front bumper of the neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family van, scissors in hand, about to cut the rope that is the mannequinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noose, when a moth distracts her. A moth with electric orange feelers and the furry torso of a yellow lab. A moth which rests on the mannequinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deliciously bodacious left boob. Big Brother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quit judging me with those black eyes, moth. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fighting crime here.â&#x20AC;? Snip, snip, down. Skipper picks up the mannequin and tosses it with the scissors and the rope onto the passenger seat of her pink camper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one has needed a drink more than you do right now,â&#x20AC;? Skipper says, resting her hand on the mannequinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thigh and patting

it gently. She pulls out south to the B&B. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two bloody marys, extra horse,â&#x20AC;? she orders from her leather stool, she on one, new friend on the other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who you got there?â&#x20AC;? asks her older sister from behind the bar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know her name, but I saved her from the Dia de los Muertos display the Joneses put up every year. They went too far this time, lynching her like that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;She needs a spa day,â&#x20AC;? says Barbie, placing the bloodys on the counter, olives like green silicon breasts, celery sticks like daddy longlegs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pass me that liniment oil mom gave you, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna give her a rubdown.â&#x20AC;? Barbie unscrews the lid off the Sloaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and passes the bottle to her younger sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need therapy, or at least an aura fluffing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Herself â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much for words. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it look like she walked off the set of Deadwood? All gold-panner prostitute. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of woman people think was asking for it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that story too well,â&#x20AC;? sighs Barbie, taking a deep breath and wishing for a cigarette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah,â&#x20AC;? says Skipper, â&#x20AC;&#x153;people think we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it allâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;looks, a career.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call hooking a career,â&#x20AC;? sneers Barbie, rolling her eyes, pissed off as usual. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This from my sister who graduated from Cal and settles for being Bartender Barbie. Desperate times. People should be more concerned about the Wild West male mannequins with their wood guns and dueling spirits. All the couch liberals of the world, putting the focus on whether we dress too-too, whether we perpetuate the fuckable stereotypes that keep women down, whether we shop too much. Assuming we are braindead, that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made our own choices.â&#x20AC;? Skipper massages the ointment onto the mannequinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This stuff is better than La Mer. Look, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smiling. Hey, Barbs, you want to take off tomorrow night and

THE BOHEMIAN’S BEST OF THE NORTH BAY READERS POLL, 2010—REDUX! Every year, we ask you to give us your top picks for the best places to dine out or eat in, find a new dress, play with the kids, drink a glass of wine, spoil the dog, fall in love and work up a sweat. And every year, you respond in droves with an insider list of great places to shop, play and frequent here in the North Bay. We call the issue “Best Of” and it publishes every March. In the autumn, we reprise your picks—the Readers Poll—in this handy guidebook for use in deciding where to take the car for an oil change or remembering the best summer camp for next year’s frivolities or deciding where to go for a late-night meal; we hope you’ll use it as a constant resource. On the following pages, we’ve reprinted all of your 2010 picks for everything from the best dance studio to the best dog groomer to the best spot to rekindle a love affair. All of these businesses are local and unique to Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties, and we’re proud to support them. The following sections offer the best of the North Bay in all categories:

Culture Recreation Food & Drink Family Romance Everyday

The arts as part of who we are All play and no work. Please Celebrating the bounty Kids and pets and so much more Everyone has a love story The little details that matter

Enjoy! Rosemary Olson, publisher

go camping with us? I so want to get on the road, build a fire, roast some marshmallows, see some tall trees.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A raging fire is just what I need. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And tall trees remind me that everything is OKâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that it was and is and will be OK,â&#x20AC;? says Skipper, finishing off her bloody mary, her arm around Gold Panner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My name is Loretta,â&#x20AC;? the mannequin says loudly, looking Skipper in the eyes and reaching for her drink. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the world in the palm of our hands. We really do, Loretta.â&#x20AC;? Barbie looks to the corner of the bar, where the bug zapper zaps, nodding. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Molly Brown

1T]TSXRcX]T1PXcBfXcRW I rubbed down Benedict, Father Abbotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old gelding, with Dr. Sloanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horse liniment (â&#x20AC;&#x153;good for man and beastâ&#x20AC;?), then rode toward the baptistery where Gabriella was waiting, and heaved her up, doll-like in her favorite Spanish bustier, gently whipping Benedict with the white belt of my monkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tunic, leading the equine eunuch past the cathedral and the Leaning Tower out of Pisa to the bucolic meadow I knew so well. It had been a long wait since the hour of Lauds, the morning prayer that we junior monks must attend at sunup without brushing our teeth, our voices so hoarse that the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prayer sounds like one of Bob Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballads. Between Prime and Terce, I had helped in the library, but actually checked into that internet chat room again. As the youngest novice, I am something of an IT specialist in this monastery, so it took me only a minute to figure out that our dear Father Abbot had signed in as BadBoy666, and was raving about â&#x20AC;&#x153;legs like Hermes and a chest like an archangel.â&#x20AC;? I chose a very sexy painting of archangel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goldilocksâ&#x20AC;? Gabriel by Botticelli as my avatar, and my chat was coy and flirty. An hour later (are abbots always online?), Father BadBoy666 wrote heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to meet me shortly after Sext in the monasteryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine cellar, while everybody was resting or reading psalms on his own. Then, in the abbotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, I sent an urgent email to Bulbus, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only the bread and cheese merchant in Pisaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Via Niosi, but also a wine lover and widower and the unlikely

father to Gabriella, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty as a prayer book and sweet as an apple on Christmas Day. I told Bulbus to bring two loaves of multigrain bread, a slice of Stilton and some fromage bleu and Agnus Dei sheepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheese into the wine cellar of the monastery, and that he needed to come stat, at 15 after midday. From the window of my monkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cell, I observed our portly Father Abbot, the pectoral cross bouncing on his tight tunic, trundle down into the wine cellar, followed five minutes later by Bulbus, who was carrying two heavy bundles of cheese and bread. What would happen next? Exactly what happened last time: after the initial disappointment that Bulbus wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the one he had expected, the one with Hermes legs and an archangelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chest, but nevertheless was someone who came with hearty bread and delicious cheeses, Father Abbot would invite the merchant to partake, and Bulbus, his nose betraying his weakness for the excellent monastery wine, would sit down, and together theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feast and drink until theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d fall of the wooden benches and sleep through the night when the prior would come looking for Father Abbot to celebrate Lauds in the morning. By that time Gabriella would long be sleeping soundly in her chaste bed in Via Niosi, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sing the morning hymn at Lauds with joyful abandon.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Wulf Rehder

?a^\XbTb<h5PcWTa<PST The chair was too damned sturdy, thought Dunn, but at least that meant heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d built it properly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dunn! Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the gold?â&#x20AC;? His assailant punctuated the question with another brutal fist to the gut. Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arms flexed futilely against the rope that bound his wrists to the chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chet, over here,â&#x20AC;? said the weasely little man by the shelf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He keeps the whole mess of statues over here.â&#x20AC;? He held one up, a doll in taffeta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I done tell you â&#x20AC;&#x2122;bout usinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; my name on a job, Willie?â&#x20AC;? answered Chet, massaging his knuckles. The doll gazed forlornly at Dunn through Willieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dirty digits. His Papa had given it to his Mama back in 1850, promising that once they struck it rich, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be wearinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fine dresses, edged in lace. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never struck it rich, and Mama had finished her days in simple cotton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe in this one?â&#x20AC;? asked Chet, seizing the doll and throwing it straight down. Her plaster smashed against the wooden floor of the shed, but only plaster, nothing else. Chet screamed in anger and lunged for the shelf of statues. Next to go was a figure of a hand, grasping the architecture of Europe. In â&#x20AC;&#x2122;56, Papa had told Mama that once they hit pay dirt, they could travel â&#x20AC;&#x2122;round the globe and see the sights. The pay dirt had always been a shovelful away, though, and Mama never saw Italy. Piece after piece crashed into the floor in front of the silent Dunn. Chet kicked through the shards of each, but all of the pieces were solid. With each piece, his muttered â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like hell!â&#x20AC;? grew louder and more violent. Willieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nervous whine interrupted his partner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look, maybe the rumors were

wrong. Maybe his daddy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the richest man in Hodson.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said like hell! You heard â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drunks last night, each talkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;bout Dunn seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riches tied up in these lilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; clay things. Now, his son still got â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, but they ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hollow!â&#x20AC;? The ceramic was throwing up dust now with each minor explosion. It forced involuntary tears to Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes, blurring his sight but not his recollections. Fifty-two, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;53, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;54. Each year had been another promise sealed in a statue, and each year was an empty promise, gone unfulfilled. Still, Mama had kept on loving Papa, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d loved her. Chetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fist was swinging again into Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s temple, and the tears flowed down with each impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hollow!â&#x20AC;? Chet screamed, his voice reaching a fever pitch. Chet was right.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mark Bellinger

FWPccWT3P]RTaBPf The pub door f lew open and a draft of chill morning air kicked up a f lurry of dust around the figurine of the dancer that occupied a shelf above the bar. Detective Hugh Wallace swept in, trying to use bluster and confidence to conceal his disheveled state. He guessed by his aching, pounding head that he had been there the night before, though he had no recollection of it. The bar was filled with solemn-faced uniforms that exuded far less merriment than the darkpaneled pub walls were used to. Hugh thought wryly that he himself would have to be considered a suspect for the murder, since he had no alibi. Officer Benton accosted him at the door and began to give him the usual lengthy and tedious report, but Hugh waved him away. The murder victim lay on the floor of the pub, his heavy wool coat in disarray around his spread-eagled body. One of his hands clutched a frayed scrap of

rope, and a small green bottle lay forlornly on the floor beside his coat pocket. Hugh took in each aspect of the scene with a professional detectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keen eye, though his mind was elsewhere. His memories of the night before were returning slowly and unsteadily. The figurine of the dancer had been sitting in its usual spot above the bar, observing the huddles of men in the dimly lit room. Hugh remembered the men talking in grumbles over tall glasses of amber liquid. Some laughed, some complained, but the atmosphere was one of relaxed camaraderie. He could vaguely remember a man (the same one now lying on the f loor before him) sitting in the smoky shadows of the bar ranting something about a boat. The man moved stiff ly as though suffering from arthritis, and the lines on his face were even more prominent in the shadows. Occasionally he would stop to let loose a hacking cough that made his entire bony frame shake. Once he finished ranting, his audience shifted away, mumbling excuses to escape this angry old man. Hugh closed his eyes, desperately trying to access his jumbled memory. Who else was there? Who would have wanted to kill him? Why? Officer Benton interrupted his mutterings to inform him that the victim had been stabbed with a knife. If the officer was surprised to see Hugh pale so quickly, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention it. But Hugh was suddenly overwhelmed. He swayed with shock as memories rushed to fill in the gaps in the story. There had been a knifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;oh, he wished there hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but he could remember it, the cold gleam along its sharp blade, the weighty feel of the leather handle and the sudden horror of the blood, the figurineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes judging him from the shelf. Hugh looked up to see painted eyes boring into his. Her hand was splayed elegantly across her forehead, index finger out, as though quietly pointing out the culprit. Her eyes flashed accusingly.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Kajsa Edvardsson

Growing up Jewish is a reigning theme in Davisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work, but as the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title implies, the underlying inspiration comes from being a young woman in the modern world.

rowing up in poverty in San Francisco in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s, Petaluma author Frances Lefkowitz acutely felt all the things she lacked, both physically and psychologically. In her book â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To Have Notâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (MacAdam/Cage; $14.50), Lefkowitz describes her life on the fringe of society. She did not have a stable home environmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the family moved nine times in 17 years. She did not have a complete familyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;her parents divorced when she was 10 and divided the children between them. She did not have a stay-athome parent, much to eat or new clothes unless she shoplifted them for herself. But genetics isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t measured in dollars, and Lefkowitz inherited a scrappy survival instinct and make-do attitude, along with book smarts. Working hard, she earned scholarships to an Ivy League university. But she found herself feeling like a â&#x20AC;&#x153;have-notâ&#x20AC;? once again among her upper-class East Coast peers. How she manages to break free of her marginal living situations and lifelong feelings of inadequacy, and find happiness and a sense of worth is insightful reading for our â&#x20AC;&#x153;more is betterâ&#x20AC;? society.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.D.

His loving analysis of the origins of his subject reaches back to the Reconstruction to outline the symbiotic history and cross-pollination that the sacred (spirituals, initially) and the profane (blues) shared in the evolution of modern gospel music. That history then provides a nuanced context for understanding the more contemporary discord when pioneering figures such as Ray Charles and Sam Cooke took the fervor and emotional power of black church music into the secular realm of popular songs. But Rudinow also views this through the prism of his academic specialty, referencing the Pythagoreansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; theories of numeric-based harmonics, and tracing Platoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theories of moral psychology as a basis for attempts to qualify the emotive power of differing keys and tempos. Along the way, we get extensive discussion of seminal bluesman Robert Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fabled deal with the devil, the role of the Staples Singers in bridging gospel and â&#x20AC;&#x153;messageâ&#x20AC;? music during the Civil Rights movement and a deconstruction of the authoritarian orthodoxy of neoconservative beacon Leo Strauss.

onoma author Carol A. Collier continues the adventures of Anna Wall in her latest novel, ‘River Dreams’ (AuthorHouse; $15.49). Collier’s previous Anna Wall book, An Appalachian Summer, provided romance and suspense and, for Wall, a new husband. River Dreams finds Wall finally accepting an offer of marriage from her high school sweetheart, Bill Collins, and the newlywedded couple take a cruise in Brazil along the Amazon river. Wall experiences mind-opening visions of a metaphysical landscape, invisible before her entry into shamanic healing, and returns to her native Virginia with a new awareness of the destruction caused by mountaintop removal. Clear-cutting and coal mining actually fit nicely beside domestic life in Collier’s prose and, inspired by her real-life father’s experience in the mountains and backroads of Virginia, paint a vivid picture of love and environmental activism in the Appalachians. —G.M. uthor Maria Finn wants us to do it on rooftops, windows, in dark corners and preferably with worms.

t is well known that the prophet Muhammad, founder of Islam, had multiple wives. But there is some question as to exactly how many. In her new book, ‘Untold: A History of the Wives of the Prophet Muhammad’ (Monkfish; $18.95), Novato poet and speaker Tamam Kahn comes down on the side of inclusiveness, counting a total of 12, as she concludes that Mariyah, a Coptic Christian woman from Egypt, should be numbered among them, even though other scholars have considered her no more than a concubine. Also among the group are two Jewish wives and women from strong matriarchal traditions in the Muslim world. Surprisingly, only one of these many wives bore children who outlived their father. Muhammad’s abundance of wives came only after a rewarding 25-year first marriage to Khadijda. Following her death, Kahn reports, “He married widows, generally,” giving those women status and a home they would otherwise have lacked. Others were marriages of political alliance, resulting at one time in a household of eight simultaneous wives. “That was pretty chaotic, I think,” the author observes. Untold is the result of extensive research, almost entirely in English, but with a focus that other Islamic scholars have generally bypassed. It is also presented in the infrequently used form of a prosimetrum, in which the factual narrative is laced with dozens of Kahn’s poems, offering a lyrical, more intimately personal portrait of the women as she recounts their histories. “Who do you think you are?” the Sufi author demands of herself in the opening poem, challenging her standing to offer this somewhat personalized account. “I am a pilgrim, a pen with a child’s heart / following the foremothers through / doors shut on centuries of stolen words,” she answers. “I am here with a message: / Conversation with these women / Will never end.”—B.R.

edicated to â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyone who has stared the status quo in the eye and shouted, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fuck You!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? the 146-page anthology â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Punk Rock Saved My Assâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Medusaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Muse; $10) is by no means a history of punk nor an analysis of its enduring appeal. Rather, in personal zinelike stories, chapbook-style poems and opinion

pieces worthy of a Maximum RocknRoll column, the collection, edited by Terena Scott and Jane Mackay, opts for the personal attachment its writers have forged with punk rock and the salvation it has provided. “Punk Rock Girl in a Redneck Town” is an exemplary snapshot of enduring the taunts of jocks over piercings and colored hair; “Cut. Paste. Repeat.” describes being transformed by Patti Smith; and “Punk Rock Love Letters in a Cassette Case” begins with the explains-it-all statement, “I was angry. I hated everyone and everything.” Throughout, the book paints a portrait of punk’s positive punch and offers the reader a peek into the chaos-theory freedom found in everything loud, fast and out of control.—G.M.

ig In: Sweets’ (The Gluten Free Lab; $10) by self-described food nerds and Healdsburg natives Aly Anderson and Heather Prandini is a short but sugary recipe digest featuring everything from cookies and brownies to chocolate ganache to peach-berry crisp—all without a hint of gluten. Full of glossy color photographs and cute captions, Dig In: Sweets goes beyond to offer alternatives to the gluten-intolerant crowd. Looking particularly tasty as well as photogenic is the banana-chocolate swirl loaf, a concoction made with almond meal, rice flour, potato starch and quinoa flour. The book also contains an extensive index of the gluten-free flours used in its recipes.—A.D.

s war inevitable? According to Santa Rosa author Kathleen Barry the answer is absolutely not. In her most recent book, ‘Unmaking War, Remaking Men: How Empathy Can Reshape Our Politics, Our Soldiers and Ourselves’ (Phoenix Rising Press; $17.95), Barry not only answers the question but offers a way out. Focusing on the ever-escalating levels of violence against

women, Barry addresses how men are made expendable and offers ways for them to move away from their social expectations. She emphasizes the presence of empathy and how it threatens promoters of masculine character. Barry constructs a compelling argument about violence toward women being connected to masculine values, but convinces readers that there are solutions and there is hope.—H.S.

anta Rosa choreographer, dancer, watercolorist and poet Amy Trussell delivers her fourth book, ‘The Painted Tongue Flowers’ (Deva Luna; $14.95), as a collaboration with painter Krista Lynn Brown. In it, the power of the feminine reigns, with imagery of birth, breasts, seeds, milk, umbilici and the petals of Venus. Men are not entirely absent from Trussell’s poetry; interpersonal relationships find eloquent flight in “Spirit Guide,” “The Beloveds” and “Intuition,” thoughtfully placed alongside each other. Brown’s paintings, with O’Keeffe-like entendre, are the perfect complement to Trussell’s verse. —G.M.

onoma author Tami Casias’ debut novel ‘Crystal Bound’ (OOMM Books; $15) tells the tale of 16-year-old Julie, a not-so-normal teenage girl. Coupled with the usual teen drama, Julie must also come to terms with her emerging powers, or as her grandmother puts it, “the ability to transform her life and the lives around her for the better.” In the end, Julie will have to use her special gifts to not only save a friend, but also reunite her shattered family. Casias weaves a spell for readers as Julie navigates the murky waters of adolescence, dealing with friends and enemies in addition to alternate realities, telekinesis and visions of the future.—A.D.

ow often is birth depicted in movies by a lot of grimacing and heart-rending howls of pain from sweat-drenched actresses, who, after much panting and a few encouraging words from a husband/friend/doctor, give a final push to expel a baby far too big to be an actual newborn? And how many women offscreen say that they truly enjoyed their birthing experience? In ‘Orgasmic Birth: Your Guide to a Safe, Satisfying, and Pleasurable Birth Experience’ (Rodale; $17.99), authors Elizabeth Davis and Debra Pascali-Bonaro compile scores of testimonials from women and their partners who have experienced birth as an ecstatic process. A Sebastopol resident, midwife for 30-plus years and a published author of six books, Davis defines orgasmic birth as “a birth experience in which a woman is connected to her body and experiences anything from pleasure to ecstasy to the actual experience of orgasm.” She further explains how the physiology of birth lays the groundwork for physical pleasure, due to high levels of oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone.” This hormone is released by women during lovemaking and, surprisingly, is also found in women during labor in amounts 10 times higher than at any point in her life. Unfortunately, the affects of oxytocin are negated by adrenaline, whose release is often caused by the atmosphere of the hospital setting, so most women are completely unaware that birthing has the potential to be a pleasurable experience. Extremely well-researched, the book offers a six-step guide to having an orgasmic birth, including a program for reaching optimal health during pregnancy, a three trimester checklist and personal stories. Tasteful black-and-white photographs illustrate the book, and the text is broken up by highlighted commentary from new parents. Elizabeth Davis appears on Thursday, Oct. 28, at Copperfield’s Books, 138 N. Main St., Sebastopol. 7pm. Free. 707.823.2618.—S.D.

ome writers work from the ending backward, and the newest Woody Allen film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, shows signs of such reverse engineering. The ending neatly matches elderly pessimism and optimism with enough tidiness to look like symmetry. Does that make up for what came beforeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; sequences of awkwardly posed actors reciting strained lines of dialogue as if, during the usual rounds of actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roulette that occur during an Allen film, they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been reshaped for the new casting? The title transforms a fortune tellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prediction into a sentence of doom, as per the line in Cassandraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dream, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only ship sure to come in has black sails.â&#x20AC;? Here is Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customary theme: Given the certainty of death, how does one conduct oneself ? Well, usually better than these characters. The film concerns the sundering of an old couple. Helena (Gemma Jones) and her husband, Alfie (Anthony Hopkins), have split. He is taking consolation with a prostitute named Charmaine (Lucy Punch). Helena is seeing a psychic and drinking a bit, though Allen doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand what this boozing might entail; alcohol is not his thing. Meanwhile, the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Sally (Naomi Watts), is struggling with her desire

to have a child, as her husband, Roy (Josh Brolin), wrestles with his unpublishable novel. Roy has his own obsession with a girl across the courtyard (Freida Pinto, almost audibly pleading for direction). Punch is the salt of this movie, a leggy comedian who makes even the minor dumbblonde jokes sail. Allen displays her almost alarmingly, though even that display is as close to physical comedy as this movie gets. The closest to physical acting this movie gets is a shot of Brolin walking down a street in Notting Hill during a smog-colored London afternoon, buttoning his shirt over his beer gut. Top-drawer actors lined up for even small parts. Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) looks exactly like a hawk trying to get out of the cage that Allen has built. The narration by Zak Orth (Fringe) describes Charmaine as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little mechanicâ&#x20AC;?; lines like these sound less wise-guy than scolding. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten to the point where a director canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see what a young person would enjoy in the lights and music of a disco, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for some kind of new stimulusâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an adaptation of a book, a period drama, anything but the same old chafing gang of affluent metropolitans. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You Will Meet a Tall Dark Strangerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Oct. 22, at the Third Street Cinema. 630 Third St., Santa Rosa. 707.522.0330.

Money Talks So from what we can gather, the Great Recession is more than just a dip in the economy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bounce back to normal. There is no more â&#x20AC;&#x153;normal.â&#x20AC;? There is, in its place, an entire new set of driving economic forces to explore, and few do so more presciently than Robert Reich in his newest book Aftershock: The Next Economy and Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Future. As a columnist on the Huffington Post, Reich sparks lively debate with his populist stance, and as an occasional contributor to the Bohemian, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tackled Goldman Sachs and the exploitation of financial reform. The former Secretary of Labor argues in his latest book that no stimulus package is powerful enough to address the income disparity between the super-rich and the poorer-by-the-minute masses; he appears in conversation with Peter Barnes on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Dance Palace. Fifth and B streets, Point Reyes Station. 7:30pm. $20. 415.663.1542.

Country Duo Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call it the Napa Valley anymore, folks. This weekend, the valley officially becomes the Napa Holler when twoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;count â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, twoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;country stars croon tales of horses and heartbreak to Cab-soaked crowds. First itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the tanned-and-toned Kenny Rogers singing about holding â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em and folding â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, about taking your love to town and buying roses. Relive the magic of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gambler,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Islands in the Streamâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Got Tonightâ&#x20AC;? on Thursday, Oct. 21, at the Lincoln Theater (100 California Drive, Yountville; 8pm; $59â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$99; 707.944.9900). A few days later, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s none other than rich-voiced troubadour Randy Travis, whose country classicism and perfect drawl opened a new traditionalist movement in country music in the 1980s. He straps on his boots and strums and hums such hits as â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the Other Handâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;1982â&#x20AC;? on Sunday, Oct. 24, at the Uptown Theatre (1350 Third St., Napa; 8pm; $70â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$85; 707.259.0123).

Make It Three Whoopsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;did we say two country superstars were coming to town this weekend? Make that three, pardner! â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause just as sure as cows graze in Bodega, this weekend sees the return of rootinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;-tootinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; twanger Vince Gill. Having gotten his start in the traditional bluegrass scene surrounding then-f ledgling label Rounder Records and skyrocketing to superstardom of the awardwinning, sharp-suit wearing, fisheye-lens-video-starring sort, Gill has covered the gamut to nearly become a walking

history of country music itself. Gill, who still goes to see the local hockey team every time they play in town, has 20 Grammy awards, more than any other male country singer. Take that, Garth Brooks! See Gill live and up close on Tuesday, Oct. 26, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$70. 707.546.3600.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Blame Them For the last eight months or so, Cornerstone Sonoma has been hosting acoustic concerts in an intimate setting befitting the word-of-mouth itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generated around the county. This weekend, local house concert impresario Drew Pearce moves the whole operation to the outdoor pavilion to make room for an evening with Blame Sally. The four women of the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based band are used to playing outdoors; their recent CD, Live at Stern Grove Festival, was recorded among the trees while opening for Joan Baez last year. Blame Sallyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is a perfect fit for Cornerstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor gardens, as well. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;themed songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fillmore Streetâ&#x20AC;? are rich with piano f lourishes and four-part harmonies, while traditional songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;La Lloronaâ&#x20AC;? drip with passion and romance. Catch them when they play Friday, Oct. 22, at Cornerstone Sonoma. 23570 Arnold Drive, Sonoma. 8pm. $25. 415.706.3800.

And . . . Action! Much was made last year over Katherine Bigelowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Director Oscar for The Hurt Locker, and rightly so. Finally, the question was raised: Where are all the female directors? The answer, as evidenced by the Petaluma International Film Festival, seems to be: beneath the mainstream. Among the 40odd films showing this weekend, there are 10 made by women. They range from the 15-minute vignette Walking by Jeanne Herry, who got her start working with the great Louis Malle, to the full-length Beijing Taxi, a slice-of-life documentary by Miao Wang. Of special note is Chrystene Ells appearing in person with her film Sisu, based on the true story of a Finnish immigrant in Canada who is driven so mad by the Great Depression that he builds a boat to sail homeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;1,200 miles inland. The festival runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Oct. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;24, at Boulevard Cinemas. 200 C St., Petaluma. Times vary. $10 per screening. 415.381.4123.

Joan Osborne, with a piano and her heart on her sleeve f you take a shaft of sunlight,â&#x20AC;? Joan Osborne tells me by phone from the back seat of an airport-bound taxi in New York City, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and put it through a prism, it breaks up into all these different colors and different aspects of what that shaft of light is made of. To me, love is made of all those different kinds of things as well. We talk about love as being this one very simple thing, but in fact itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very complicatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there are a lot of different shapes and meanings, and there are a lot of different things that people bring to it and experience in it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the songs are about.â&#x20AC;? Osborne is late for her ďŹ&#x201A;ight to Texas, where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start a West Coast tour performing songs with only her pianist, Keith Cotton, instead of a full band. The new format has caused her to rearrange perennials like â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Becomes of the Brokenhearted,â&#x20AC;? her barnburner from the documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown, as well as to ďŹ nd a new appreciation for meal tickets like the Grammy-nominated FM-radio staple â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of Us.â&#x20AC;? Yes, she says, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sing some Grateful Dead songs, harking back to her time fronting the band, and, yes, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sing â&#x20AC;&#x153;things that I might have done way back in the day when I was singing in clubs and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done in years.â&#x20AC;? But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the new material from her upcoming songcycle album, Love and Hate, inspired in part by Van Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Astral Weeks, that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s autobiographical in the strictest sense, but it is very inspired by the relationship that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in right now, and meditations on love and the difďŹ culties and the wonderful things about it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a little bit reluctant to do that, but at this point I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to protect myself in that way anymore. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in my 40s, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a kid anymore, and I think I have less to prove.â&#x20AC;?

F8;;>½C74F8B? Who is Chan Marshall apologizing to?

0]^X]cTS 0RWT How Cat Power soothed my pain and created her own

By Leilani Clark

>

ne of the darkest moments of my life was spent barreling down a desert highway somewhere in New Mexico, crying in a fetal position in the back of a tour van with Cat Powerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Moon Pix playing on repeat over the stereo. It was the tail end of a month-long U.S. tour, and two hours earlier, in Albuquerque, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d threatened to kill one of my band mates. Rather than finishing out the tour, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d flown home, and the rest of the band sent me to Backseat Siberia to lick my wounds as we drove west. Desolate and bereft, Moon Pix was the perfect soundtrack to lull me deeper into my pit of despair. I came home. The band left me behind. Moon Pix stayed. The stage name for one Chan Marshall, Cat Power has released seven albums, beginning with 1995â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dear Sir, recorded a couple of years after the singer relocated to New York City from Georgia. Marshall followed with Myra Lee and then 1996â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s What

Arts Council Napa Valley and the Napa Valley Arts Coalition present

Would the Community Think, her first for Matador Records. A remarkable record that began to excavate Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distinct yowls and knack for sadness, Community put Cat Power on the map. I saw her soon after its release at San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Che CafĂŠ, a dingy, all-ages anarchist space. Marshall was round-faced and young, her short hair falling over her eyes. She appeared with just a guitar and a Fender Twin Reverb amp. There must have been 20 people in the audience. We loved her, and she seemed to love us back. About four years later, I saw Marshall perform again, this time at a much larger venue in Los Angeles, in front of a packed crowd and on the heels of Moon Pixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big indie success. She wore all white, and though we cheered as she stepped onstage, Marshall struggled to make it all the way through her songs. Thirty seconds into the opener â&#x20AC;&#x153;Metal Heart,â&#x20AC;? she stopped, apologized, and then started a new song. The stops and starts continued for a long while, and by the end of the show, she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made it through even one tune without breaking down. I was disheartened. I learned to get used to it. The last time I saw Cat Power was somewhere around the time sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d signed on to be a spokesmodel for a line of Chanel jewelryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after being spotted smoking outside of a New York hotel by Karl Lagerfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a couple of years after the release of the fantastic album You Are Free. Composed of spacey interludes in front of a piano, rambling talks and another set of unfinished songs, the show revealed Marshall as more than a little unhinged. Later, as interviews unearthed, it would turn out that she was in the throes of a raging alcoholism, leading to a suicidal breakdown in a Miami hotel room. Marshall has since been to rehab and recorded an excellent record, The Greatest, in Memphis, where her caramel vocals are accompanied by Memphis Teenie and Leroy Hodges. A successful album of covers called Jukebox followed, and the critical narrative says that Cat Power has finally gathered her insecurities and evolved into a confident artist. Yet during a recent performance at Matador Recordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 21st anniversary celebration in Las Vegas, Marshall played a set of pretty but surprisingly soulless covers, punctuated by the same whispered Sorrys from all those years ago between and during songs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell who Marshall is apologizing to. Herself ? Her band? The audience? Her fans? It could be the apologies are simply a nervous tic, unconscious manifestations from a woman who has spent the past 10 years battling personal demons in front of an audience. Or maybe, in a way, Marshall is apologizing to that younger version of herself who took the stage so long ago in San Diego, the one with her entire life before her, the one that once had rawness and intensity in spades. Cat Power plays Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $40. 707.259.0123.

Joel Selvinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40 years of pop music writing or 40 years now, Joel Selvin has dished the dirt in the San Francisco Chronicle on Bay Area music luminaries like Bill Graham, Sly Stone, the Grateful Dead, Journey, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sammy Hagar, Jefferson Airplane, Bonnie Raitt and countless others. Those profiles and more are collected in his just-released, 400page paperback anthology, Smart Ass (SLG Books; $19.95), but when asked which story heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most proud of writing, the brazen-voiced Selvin doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really proud of getting Stanley Mouse his liver,â&#x20AC;? he says. Huh? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was checked into the hospital, in a coma, as Stanley Miller,â&#x20AC;? Selvin explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And his friends called me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My God, Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna die, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give him a liver, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost $350,000.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So I put an article in the paper on the front page on Saturday, saying that this world-famous psychedelic poster artist is near death in a San Francisco hospital for want of a liver, and some doctor read the paper, saw that there was a liver in Arizona, and went ahead and slapped it in Stanley on Sunday and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll send this upstairs for the finance guys to figure out on Monday.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sort of stuff thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting about being in the newspaper business.â&#x20AC;? Smart Ass evinces a true love of music with the kind of behind-the-scenes stories that have entered musical lore. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sheryl Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ex-boyfriend Kevin Gilbert, who helped catapult Crow to fame and committed suicide after she stole his songs. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sonoma-bred luthier Doug Irwin, whom the surviving members of the Grateful Dead sued against Jerry Garciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final wishes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sly Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insane behavior while recording Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Riot Goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; On. Selvin still recalls with pride the phone call he got in 1978 after a scathing concert review. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch the call, my first wife did,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re his wife, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Bob Dylan. You tell him his license to review me has been revoked.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I thought that was a charming thing for him to have said.â&#x20AC;? Joel Selvin appears on Sunday, Oct. 24, at Copperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books (140 Kentucky St., Petaluma; 2pm; 707.762.0563) and on Thursday, Nov. 11, at Readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Books (130 E.

Spreckelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Zombiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a giddy sci-fi spoof ise up, globe-trotter! No self-respecting, husky and well-fed buck would subserviate to a bevy of zaftig vixens!â&#x20AC;? Take cover, because hilariously overwritten lines like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this one delivered by a government scientist addressing a sexy opera-singing alien bent on kidnapping all of Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;virilitous he-specimensâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;come flying toward the audience at the speed of light in the ultracampy sci-fi musical Zombies from the Beyond. Presented through Halloween (perfect timing!) by Odyssey Stage Company, James Valcqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comic spoof is a playful homage to 1950s alien-invasion movies, and the songs capture the goofy, pre-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s rock and roll innocence of the era. The story takes place at and around the Milwaukee Space Center, where Maj. Malone (Steve Kirkbride), with his super-competent second-in-command Rick Jones (Nick Chuba, a first-rate physical comedian), are monitoring the skies for signs of alien existenceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and/or Soviet aggression. Rick has been courting the majorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highIQ daughter Mary (Katie Kelley, above), and with the arrival of the brilliant, pipe-smoking scientist Trenton Corbett (a pitch-perfect Mark Bradbury, above), romantic entanglements and a bunch of singing-and-dancing quickly ensue. But the real action begins when a flying saucer arrives over Milwaukee, followed by the appearance of Zombina (Tina Lloyd Meals), the leader of a recently allfemale planet. With no men to propagate their species, Zombina has come to destroy Earth and enslave the men, turning them into zombies with the brain-scalding power of her singing voice. Directed with obvious glee by Carl Hamilton, the production and the acting are occasionally uneven, but the strong performances by Chuba, Kelley and Bradburyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who do wonders with the scriptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outrageous onslaught of one-linersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are reason enough to catch the show. The entire affair is like an alien-shaped cupcakeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; weird, sweet, not terribly healthy, but somehow impossible to resist. Zombies from the Beyond runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Oct.31 at Spreckels Performing Arts Center. Thursday at 7:30pm; Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$28. 707.588.3400. David Templeton
