Corporatocracy and the movement to amend the Constitution BY ANNA JACOPETTI

A

mericans across the political spectrum are suffering. Families have lost jobs and homes while struggling to meet basic needs, and seniors have lost retirement savings while “safety nets” are under attack. Education has been cut to the bone, and a generation of college graduates, already deeply indebted, struggles to find work. We look to our government for recourse from this disaster and we witness systems corrupted by corporate cash. Our voices are drowned out by lobbyists as corporate money flows freely into political coffers. Gridlock has become a political ploy, holding essential human needs hostage to special interests. A small group of radical Republicans in the House of Representatives, backed by several billionaires, have no reservations about shutting down our government and threatening the global financial system. Their goal is not only to defund Obamacare, but to roll back all progressive legislation, including Social Security and Medicare. The key factor in this scenario is the 2010 Supreme Court Citizens United decision that overturned legislation restricting the use of corporate money in federal elections, declaring that such restrictions violated free speech rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. This decision allows a small group of billionaires to dictate public policy. In the face of such power, what can we do? David Cobb, former Green Party presidential candidate and passionate spokesman for the Move to Amend Coalition, offers a path to reclaim our democracy by supporting a constitutional amendment that states corporations are not people, and money is not speech. This amendment strips corporations of First Amendment rights that belong only to the people. If it becomes the law of the land, it nullifies Citizens United and allows regulation of corporate cash into our government. On Nov. 13, Cobb will let us know where we are in the struggle, what has been accomplished so far and what is left to accomplish. He will also help us spread the word in our community so that all citizens understand what is at stake. Join us at the Grange Hall, 6000 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol, at 7pm. Anna Jacopetti is an organizer with Move to Amend Sonoma County who lives in Santa Rosa. We welcome your contribution.

Lawyers, Guns and Money

It is a sad commentary on our society that the only way to get a complete account of the Andy Lopez shooting is through a lawsuit (“To the Courts,” Nov. 6). Because there is a lawyer involved, people will conveniently jump to the conclusion that the family’s lawsuit is driven wholly by money. Arnoldo Casillas is doing the family no favors in this regard by publicly bragging that he is able to net them more than $24 million. The reality is that Gelhaus will be cleared by the SRPD’s phony “investigation” for reciting his lines properly and stating that he feared for his life, knowing that doing so justifies any shooting. District attorney Jill Ravitch, who is supported in her reelection campaign by Sheriff Frietas and the Santa Rosa Police Officers’ Association, will return the favor by upholding the result of the “investigation.” The Grand Jury, mostly old, white and wealthy, will dutifully stamp the D.A.’s review, and five years or so down the road, another innocent teenager will be killed by law enforcement. Casillas stands to make a tidy sum of money fighting this lawsuit. But if the Lopez family demands the release of every incriminatory piece of evidence that his team digs up, and if the county’s “investigation” protocol is subsequently revealed as the sham it is, and a Civilian Review Board is formed to give proper reprimand to triggerhappy deputies who kill children for no justifiable reason, then I say his money will be well-earned.

MORGAN LYMAN Via Online

In response to the misguided sentiments of one Jethro Hooper (Letters to the Editor, Nov. 6), Gelhaus would have had no more justification to execute Andy

Lopez in three seconds if he had been carrying a real AK-47, which is legal to own in California.

Semantics! In your Oct. 9 “This Modern World” policartoon, one character says, “This is still a democracy, isn’t it?” while the very last line is “It’s not how democracy works.” Well, uh, the United States is not a democracy nor has it ever been; it is a constitutionally limited federal republic set up under a constitution adopted in 1787 by a Constitutional Convention. “The Constitution is explicit about the type of government it establishes: ‘The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican Form of Government.’” (Article IV, Section 4)— Lies You Learned at School by Michael Powell.

Typhoon Climate Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased from about 320 parts per million in 1960 to almost 400 ppm today, an amount not equalled for 800,000 years. This has caused Pacific Ocean temperatures to rise rapidly. Surface temperatures of 30 degrees centigrade boiled up into Typhoon Haiyan, a super storm killing 10,000 people in one area of the Philippines and leaving the living in a nightmare landscape of corpses, with no food or water, debris blocking roads, and another tropical storm on the way. We need to change our lives, and the giant corporations that dominate our lives, to slow the juggernaut of accelerating climate change. We must hold fossil fuel industries financially accountable for the consequences of climate change instead of subsidizing them. We need wind and solar power; efficient electrical transmission; zeroenergy buildings; public transportation;

PLAZA PLANS Those both for and against Measure B say they want to retain Sonoma’s small-town character.

Protect or Preserve Sonoma’s Measure B is the city’s most costly issue; would limit hotes to 25 rooms each BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

O

n Tuesday, thousands of Sonomans will choose whether to “protect” or “preserve” the city through a ballot measure proposing a limit on hotel size. Despite the ambiguous names of the groups on either side, Measure B is the most

controversial decision, at least in terms of campaign money, that the city of 10,000 has ever been asked to make. Nearly $150,000 has been spent on both sides of the measure, which, if passed, will limit the number of rooms a hotel in Sonoma may have to 25. About $90,000 has been spent by Protect

Sonoma, the group against the measure; almost $58,000 by Preserve Sonoma, including a $25,000 loan from its leader, former Sonoma mayor Larry Barnett. At the heart of the measure is a 59-unit luxury hotel, conference center and restaurant proposed by lobbyist, developer and newspaper owner Darius Anderson. He is principal owner of the ) 10

Step Down Though Sonoma County courts and its Department of Health have a long history of exclusively referring clients with a history of substance abuse to 12-step programs, which rely on a belief in a higher power, that policy is about to change. As reported in the Bohemian in July 2012, Santa Rosa resident Byron Kerr has made it his mission to see that all specific references to 12-step support and specific 12-step practices be removed from Sonoma County policy and court sentencing—to be replaced with recommended neutral language. Kerr has repeatedly requested that the County refer substance users to abstinence-based, self-help support groups on a clear and equal basis, without preference given to sobriety programs that promote powerlessness over alcohol in the face of God, such as Alcoholics Anonymous. It’s an argument strengthened by the Ninth District Court of Appeals, which ruled in 2007 and 2013 that forcing clients to attend a 12-step program, without offering secular alternatives, constitutes a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment—also known as separation of church and state. Kerr—a member of LifeRing, a secular recovery group based in Oakland—tells the Bohemian that at an Oct. 30 meeting with Mike Kennedy, the Sonoma County Director of Behavioral Health, and Deputy Counsel Phyllis Gallagher, he was told that Sonoma County will begin “clear and equal choice of support” and that all specific references to 12-step support and specific 12-step practices will be removed from applicable documents. Consider this a victory for those desiring secular recovery alternatives.—Leilani Clark

The Bohemian started as The Paper in 1978.

“We’ve certainly made an effort not to make any individual the focus of this campaign,” says Barnett, arguing that the Measure is about town character. “We don’t want to see Sonoma turned into an overcrowded, overdeveloped, busy, noisy town so dominated by tourism that it’s not pleasant to live as a resident.” On the other side of the issue is Protect Sonoma, which says restricting potential tourism dollars would hurt the city and possibly lead to other, unwanted developments. “I believe in the process that exists,” says Nancy Simpson of Protect Sonoma. “We have to look at every project on a case by case basis.” Simpson says the system in place—development zones, permit applications and approval from the Planning Commission and City Council— has worked so far. There are currently four hotels in Sonoma exceeding Measure B’s proposed limit with more than 25 rooms. Those hotels would be grandfathered in, but Measure B would restrict their expansion unless hotels in the city reach

an 80 percent occupancy rate. Statistics from the city show occupancy average peaks at 77 percent over the past 10 years in the late summer months, dipping to 39 percent in January. Hotels over 25 rooms average an 11 percent higher occupancy rate than smaller ones over the same period, and currently account for 78 percent of all the hotel rooms (and 80 percent of the hotel taxes) collected by the city. Just over 20 percent of Sonoma’s annual revenue is generated by hotel taxes. Barnett, who was instrumental in implementing Sonoma’s Urban Growth Boundary in 2000, says the city can do fine with smaller hotels and shouldn’t sacrifice its character for the needs of out-of-towners. Using phrases like “fabric of a community” and “tempo of life,” Barnett explains that the proposed 59-room hotel is a sign of impending changes to come if Measure B fails. “Sonoma cherishes and guards its particular nature and qualities quite seriously,” he says. “It’s really easy to end up turning into Yountville.” Campaign financing against Measure B comes largely ($37,000) from Anderson’s Chateau Sonoma Hotel Group, LLC. But Simpson says she isn’t interested in helping developers take over her town. “We’re not pro-development,” she says. “I care about our small-town character.” She cites the lack of real estate available for development in the city and the Urban Growth Boundary as limits that are already in place for large hotels, and says Measure B risks pigeonholing the city into approving less desirable development. “We can’t just assume hotels are the only thing that threatens our small town character and credibility.” As it happens, both Simpson and Barnett share the same ideology on this topic. “‘Reinforce smalltown character of Sonoma’ is in the general plan,” says Barnett. “Our initiative actually puts a number to that.” Simpson, who agrees with the sentiment, counters that assigning hard numbers to “character” is not the right approach. “This is a balancing act,” she says.

SMALL BITES

Autumn Delight Sinatra impersonators are a dime a dozen, especially when one enters the 702 area code. No fly-by-night Vegas crooner, John DeMers is a master of recreating Sinatra’s phrasing and inflection— and he even looks like a late-era Ol’ Blue Eyes. On Wednesday, Nov. 20, DeMers hosts “Come Fly With Me,” a fundraiser for the Healdsburg Jazz Festival, with a special dinner at Madrona Manor in Healdsburg prepared by chef Jesse Mallgren. Wine, dessert and dancing rounds out the cocktailattire night, swinging and swaying from 5:309pm. Tickets, $150, can be had at www.healdsburgjazzfestival.com. Forty years ago, ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ first aired on TV, and a nation was introduced to Snoopy’s idea of Thanksgiving dinner: toast, pretzels, popcorn and jelly beans. That same meal is on offer Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Schulz Museum at 1:30pm; the special screens at 12:30pm and 3:30pm. Two cans of food equals one free children’s admission; for more, see www.schulzmuseum.org. The Model Bakery has been a Main Street mainstay in St. Helena for generations, and the just-released Model Bakery Cookbook (pictured) finally divulges some of its recipes for success. Fans of the joint can learn from the owners, Karen Mitchell and Sarah Mitchell Hansen, in a cooking class on Saturday, Nov. 16, at Whole Foods in Napa. $40 includes cookbook and take-home cookies and pie. To sign up, see www.copperfieldsbooks.com.—Gabe Meline

MacLaren Wine Company

Santa Rosa’s First Gourmet Take-out Business Mike and Kendra McCoy, proud owners since 1999

A wee taste of gentie Syrah BY JAMES KNIGHT

I

don’t know much about MacLaren when I walk into this tasting room in the back of Sonoma’s “Vine Alley,” except that they’re new, they specialize in Syrah and their name sounds vaguely Scottish. As soon as winemaker Steve Law greets me from behind the bar in the smartly but sparely decorated tasting lounge, it is confirmed: it’s a Scottish thing, all right.

MacLaren, that’s his clan name. Hailing from the land of another lovely, smoky beverage aged in oak casks, the former electronics engineer didn’t get bit by the wine bug until he worked for Hewlett-Packard in Grenoble, France. Weekends spent exploring the northern Rhône nurtured his love for Syrah. After a weekend jaunt to Dry Creek Valley, Law became a friend of Zinfandel specialist Michael Talty. “When I took my vacation, I’d go and help with harvest,” he says. “You need to do something about this addiction,” his winemaker friends said. So in 2007, he started making some of his own at Tally’s winery. Some retirement project this is not. Toward the end of the 2011 harvest, Law used up all of his vacation hours. After a productive conversation with his wife, an elementary school teacher, he switched gears to being a full-time winemaker. At just 1,000 cases a year, it was a wee bit of a gamble to open up a tasting room, Law admits. But direct-to-consumer sales are the way to go— particularly when trying to sell cool-climate, food-friendly Syrah in today’s market, although Law says that when he gets a chance to pour for chefs and somms, they’re instant fans. The 2010 “Drouthy Neebors” ($30) is a blend chosen by democratic vote of wine club members. Meaning “thirsty neighbors” in the Scots language, it’s aromatic and elegant, with nice tension on the finish. The 2010 Russian River Valley Syrah ($30) sports licorice and liqueur notes, and might pleasingly surprise Bordeaux-centric wine drinkers. Law describes the 2010 Samantha’s Vineyard, Russian River Valley Syrah ($40) as his biggest wine. It’s complex, with spicy oak and high-toned blueberry fruit, but did not entice me as much as the 2010 Judge Family Vineyard, Bennett Valley Syrah ($40). With savory aromas of Kalamata olive, and a sensuous mouthfeel, this wine remains lively and bright throughout. Despite its location in the center of Sonoma County, this vineyard is directly in the path of the Petaluma Gap fog line. “The only place colder,” jokes Law, “is probably Scotland!” MacLaren Wine Company, 27 E. Napa St., Suite E, Sonoma. Open Monday–Thursday, noon–5pm; Friday–Sunday, noon–6pm. Tasting fee, $15. 707.938.7490.

Arts Ideas MADE FOR TV Piper Kerman says the hit Netflix series isn’t an accurate portrayal of her own life behind bars.

Prison Punch

‘Orange is the New Black’ author Piper Kerman talks life behind bars—and the need for reform BY LEILANI CLARK

A

fter serving 13 months in prison, Piper Kerman left hungry for two things. The first? A slice of pizza. The second? A drive to tell the diverse and often heartbreaking stories of the women she met while serving time at a federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut.

“It was really clear to me that there was a great interest in what happens behind the walls of prisons and jails,” Kerman recalls

by phone. “It is a very hidden, very intentionally hidden world.” These stories, along with her own, became the best-selling 2010 memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in Women’s Prison. The title is familiar for fans of the Netflix original Orange is the New Black, a brutal, racy, darkly funny and highly addictive series that’s become a much-buzzed-about hit after its premiere earlier this year. Kerman speaks Nov. 18 at Sonoma State University. Created by Jenji Kohan— producer of the controversial Showtime series Weeds—the show revolves around Piper Chapman,

an affluent and privileged Park Slope denizen sentenced to 15 months for a low-level, tenyear-old drug offense. While in her early twenties, just like Kerman, Piper Chapman became romantically involved with an older, sophisticated woman who happened to work for an international drug cartel. Also like Kerman, a one-time rash decision to carry drug money across international borders ends in a money laundering and drug trafficking conviction. The show is lauded for the racial, sexual and socio-economic diversity of its cast, while

simultaneously critiqued for employing a white woman as the entry point into a marginalized prison society, a charge that Kohan responded to in an NPR interview. “In a lot of ways Piper was my Trojan Horse,” Kohan told Terri Gross on Fresh Air. “You’re not going to go into a network and sell a show on really fascinating tales of black women, and Latina women, and old women and criminals. But if you take this white girl, this sort of fish out of water, and you follow her in, you can then expand your world and tell all of those other stories.” What the show does incredibly well is capture the humanity and the multi-layered narratives of America’s fastest growing prison population. The number of incarcerated women has grown 646 percent between 1980 and 2010. Most are low-level offenders who’ve made serious mistakes but pose little threat of violence, says Kerman. Also, 80 percent of criminal defendants are too poor to afford a lawyer, leading to serious questions about the inequity of access to justice and fairness in sentencing. “We are not necessarily accustomed to seeing people who are in prison, or people who are caught up in the criminal justice system, humanized, as opposed to demonized,” says Kerman, who serves on the board of the Women’s Prison Association and speaks widely about the need for indigent defense and sentencing reform. “A recognition that each and every person who goes through that system has a complicated story, and that they are the protagonists of their own story, is really important.” Though aspects of the show’s storyline mirror her real life, it is an adaptation instead of a biopic, Kerman says. For example, the fictionalized Piper ends up

confronting her ex-lover (played by Laura Prepon) in prison and reigniting their affair, even as her hapless fiancé Larry waits for her at home. In real life, Kerman did run into her one-time lover Nora, but it led to no more than a friendly act of letting bygones be bygones. And though the show features illicit dalliances between prison guards and inmates (one which results in a forbidden love child), a corrupt official embezzling money from the prison, a fight to the death between Chapman and the methamphetamine-damaged, fake born-again Christian Pennsatucky, and lesbian love triangles galore, none of these events actually happened. “Television demands an enormous level of conflict in every single episode that would be almost unreadable in a book,” explains Kerman. “It’s a really different medium. I think they work hard to create conflict in a show that is fascinating, including conflicts that didn’t really exist in my own life.” But the main goal, to humanize a dehumanized population—a crucial issue in the United States where the prison population has grown from 500,000 in 1980 to 2.3 million today, and when the Supreme Court has ruled the overly crowded conditions in California prisons to be inhumane—is the same. Kerman’s kept busy with speaking engagements, the buzz around the show, and life with her toddler and husband Larry Smith in Brooklyn. But overall, she feels lucky to be able to do her life’s work and use her voice to pull more people into the conversation about a dysfunctional criminal justice system. “By and large, a lot of the public recognizes that we need some significant changes and it’s time to talk about what those changes should be,” she says. “There’s less debate about whether the criminal justice system needs to be reformed, and more and more, what is the best way to fix it.”

hen playwright Kenneth Lonergan ďŹ rst introduced audiences to his self-absorbed, drug-using, post-adolescent characters Dennis, Warren and Jessica, audiences didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to think of This is Our Youth. The play, a dark comedy, steeped in drug use, strong profanity and references from H.R. Pufnstuf to Major Matt Mason. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too old for those references, you might be among those who feel a tad uncomfortable with Lonerganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raw and honest slice of Reagan-era life. At Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main Stage West, a ďŹ rst-rate cast is taking a good, entertaining crack at â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is Our Youth,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; with ďŹ ne results. Directed by Keith Baker with a conďŹ dent, laidback style thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

nonetheless engagingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even if it lacks some of the intensity and high-stakes drama of other productionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the play takes place in the apartment of Dennis, a brash, articulate part-time drug dealer who reluctantly agrees to let his friend Warren (a frequent customer) stay over after he gets kicked out of the house by his abusive lingerie-tycoon father. Warren stole ďŹ ve grand in cash before he vacated his dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, and now he has to ďŹ gure out how to replace the cash heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already spent before he can risk a return to his home. Into this mix steps Jessica, the wary yet game-to-party object of Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire. Eager to impress her with offers of expensive hotels and room service, Warren digs deeper into his pile of stolen moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and digs himself deeper into trouble. A drug deal is proposed to earn the missing money. It does not go well. As Dennis, Jimmy Gagarin is sensational, hilariously primal at times, like an angry, pot-smoking rooster, but not above collapsing into tears when he ďŹ nds himself moved by Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s puppy-dog sense of misplaced hero-worship. Lukas Thompson, as Warren, has a wonderfully nerdy, woundedbut-deďŹ ant attitude, blending a sense of amiable hurt with a fragile hopefulness as he grows from adolescent to adult before our eyes. And as Jessica, Lauren Heney, with less stage time than the others, holds her own in scenes with Thompson and Gagarin, allowing her to show tiny ďŹ&#x201A;ashes of girlish glee beneath the characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calculated veneer of distanced cool. With stunningly good dialogue and cleverly constructed storytelling, This is Our Youth is well worth a trip, whether it makes you remember your own youth, or worryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just a littleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about what your own kids might be up to.

A

t the Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival, My Best Enemy stars the most interesting leading actor in Germany: Moritz Bleibtreu as Victor, a Jewish prince and Viennese gallery-owner’s son.

The family is facing uncertain times. It’s a few weeks before the Anschluss, the absorbing of Austria into Hitler’s Reich. Victor’s pal from childhood, practically a cadet member of the family, is Rudi (Georg Friedrich) the housekeeper’s son. After a night of drinking, Victor lets this old friend know about a secret: the family has, concealed, an original Michelangelo drawing sold by the Vatican centuries before. Mussolini has learned of it, and would like the drawing as a present from the Fuhrer. Director Wolfgang Murnberger makes a hard-edged comedy of what comes next. Rudi turns out to be an officer in the SS, but he isn’t able to keep his uniform throughout the film, and this is a wartime milieu when clothes very much make the man. The Nazis’ ardor for valuable art undercuts their qualities of dread, and reveals them as the common, greedy thieves they were. So Murnberger does get the snickers he’s looking for. The bit about a protocol meeting, regarding who gets greeted first at a confab between Der Fuhrer and Il Duce, is nicely like the barber-chair war in The Great Dictator. (“Heil Hitler” can be a very funny line, given the inflections an actor can give it.) Praiseworthy casting of the woman who intermediates between the hapless Nazi Rudi and his suave prey Victor: Ursula Strauss may bear the name of that composer, but she looks like a Dvorak, Ann Dvorak, slender, dark-eyed and refreshingly droll. To paraphrase that astute movie critic Josef Goebbels, My Best Enemy is built like a convoy: it tries to keep up with the slowest vessel in the audience with some heavy-handed slapstick (underscored by Matthias Weber’s too-obvious soundtrack) and a too-broad clue of where the hidden Michelangelo is concealed. Bliebtreu, though, is compulsively watchable, and keeps this wobbly film together. ‘My Best Enemy’ screens Thursday, Nov. 14, as part of the Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival at Rialto Cinemas. 6868 McKinley St., Sebastopol. 1pm and 7:30pm. $10-$12. 707.528.4222.

here are your average stupid recordsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Having Fun With Elvis on Stage, most of Seals & Croftsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; catalogâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then there are your really stupid records, musical artifacts utterly bereft of any reason to exist other than to showcase their own uselessness.

These are the cacophonous curios that get played for a full 20 seconds before your theretofore pleasant company turns sour and pleads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the love of Peter Dinklage, turn it off.â&#x20AC;? I am drawn to these records. On my shelves is a record of hundreds of malfunctioning Pachinko machines; a record of compact discs smashed with hammers, glued back together and played, skipping, in a CD player; and a record with 1,000 separate lock grooves that repeat 1,000 different sound loops, depending on where you drop the needle.

Rutherford Chang has just created my new favorite stupid record, and ironically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made from what is many peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favorite record of all time: The Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; White Album. Chang owns an art gallery in SoHo called We Buy White Albums. He sells nothing, and buys only ďŹ rst-edition copies of the White Album. His gallery is set up like a record store, stocked with hundreds of copies of the White Album, arranged by the chronological number stamped on the front cover. Chang doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want pristine collectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s copies, instead preferring the many drawings, poetry and other errata that young Beatlemania-afflicted baby boomers opted to scrawl onto the blank canvas of the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover while listening to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Revolution 9â&#x20AC;? in the Nixon era. Early this year, Chang posted online an mp3 of 100 copies of the White Album played simultaneously. At the ďŹ rst chords of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back in the U.S.S.R.,â&#x20AC;? the sound echoes boldly, covered in a patina of pops and scratches from 100 old records. But because of the ďŹ&#x201A;uctuations in pressing, and variations in turntable speed, the records slowly, over the course of Side A, play slightly off from each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Prudenceâ&#x20AC;? sounds like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sung by a chorus of ghosts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Daâ&#x20AC;? is a total mess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Honey Pieâ&#x20AC;? is barely recognizable, awash in noise. And yet Chang has recorded all four sides of the White Album this way, following in the footsteps of other musicians whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve presented intentionally faulty playback as art, such as Stefan Wolpe, John Cage, Jim Kirby and William Basinski. Just this week, he has put up for sale professionally manufactured copies of his experiment as its own standalone record: 100 copies of the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; White Album, condensed into one. The cover is a composite of 100 albums from his collection, complete with names, drawings and tape on the edges. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selling it for $20 at 100whitealbums.tumblr.com, and you might want to buy it before it gets shut downâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is, if you love stupid records as much as me.

Gym Paradox Giada de Laurentis at Dominican College I used to work out at this run-down gym. I’d dutifully get on the treadmill, trying to ignore the grunts and groans from the surrounding meaty bodybuilders buffing up their biceps under two-ton barbells. And I usually forgot my ear buds, so I’d plug away on the machine, my eyes inevitably drifting up to one of the four large-screen TVs that hung above the workout zone. At least two would be tuned to some kind of sports event, leaving me with the unfortunate options of Fox News or the Food Network. I chose the latter, which usually featured either Barefoot Contessa or Giada at Home. The Contessa, with her motherly rolls of chub, I could handle. Giada, on the other hand, always left me feeling confused. She’d be wearing some tight, low-cut shirt, looking super hot, emerald eyes perfectly made up—basically, the way I hoped to look after logging miles at the gym walking to nowhere; at the same time, she’d be cooking up these decadent, fattening meals—lobster carbonara, bacon and cheese manicotti, beer and Italian sausage fondue—all the things I absolutely shouldn’t be putting in my piehole. Like Buridian’s ass, I had entered into paradox of mythological proportions. Giada, how could you do this to me? Giada de Laurentis appears in support of her latest book, Giada’s Feel Good Food, on Saturday, Nov. 16, at Dominican University. 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael. 7pm. $40 includes book. 415.457.4440. —Leilani Clark Throckmorton Theatre, 142 Throckmorton Ave, Mill Valley, 415.383.9600.
