Joshua Tree, CA – It doesn’t matter if you are a yoga professional or just a first-timer curious about the practice, you are invited to a transformation experience this weekend. It’s your choice to either commute or camp under the stars at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center and to participate in a wide variety of health and spiritual adventures. Starting Friday, May 11th, this all-ages event has something for everyone. If you can’t make it Friday you can also drop in on Saturday or Sunday or both. Fun weekend workshops lead by top yoga professionals are scheduled to take your personal yoga experience to a higher level - or to jump start your yoga engine if you are new. Some classes are large and others more intimate, some are even one on one, making for a variety of inviting and healthy experiences to participate in. “Personally, my favorite is the chant and response aural meditation of Kirtan,” said Crystal Aura, a local medium. “Larissa Stow is the bhav.” Aural explained that although the effect

of Kirtan is to develop spiritual growth and connectivity with the divine, the casual observer would recognize Kirtan as a familiar form of eastern meditation as seen on TV and movies, expressing the practices of eastern mysticism and multi-cultural worship. Top names in Kirtan scheduled to entertain festival goes include Jai Uttal, Donna De Lory, C.C White, Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, Girish, Govindasm and Randha, Shantala, Larissa Stow and Shakti Tribe, Durgas Das & Mira, Mayapuris, Saul David Raye, Gina Sala, Jaya Lackshmi , Kirtaniyas, Joey Lugassy, Arjun Baba, Luna Ray, Marti Walker, Ameritakrpa, Deepak and Breath of Life Tribe and Temple Bhajan Band. What makes this unlike other music festivals is the emphasis on health and spiritual matters. It’s got great music but it’s not just about the music. While some people are content to simply sit back, watch and listen to music - with ShaktiFest it’s more like you are inside the music and it will resonate your spirit. Various disciplines of yoga will be

attending including adherents of the kundalini and tantric varieties. The unique setting of the Joshua Tree Retreat Center brings it all to life out in the wilderness of the open desert in that spiritual oasis founded as the city of light. Contact info@BhaktiFest.com for more event info. Shakti Fest is May 11-13 from 7 am to 10 pm with camping offered extra. The 400 acre Joshua Tree Retreat center is located approximately 45 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport. Their high desert (3,000 ft) locale boasts wonderfully cool evenings even during the warmest of seasons. The Joshua Tree National Park is only 6 miles away, and aside from their own hiking trails, nearby is a unique and beautiful marshland with additional hiking just minutes away. Please do not rely on your GPS to get you here. They have encountered issues with the directions they give. For more on the retreat center see www.jtrc.org

Lucky Charm Recall Launched Against Three on Council Desert Hot Springs, CA – A $250,000 check, a $1.4 million check, and another $250,000 check are just the tip of the iceberg on a list of failed projects that used taxpayer’s money – all with Mayor Yvonne Parks signature as the person who approved the payouts. A group of residents said they are tired with the total lack of financial oversight by Parks. They said they have had enough with the city wasting taxpayer money and have filed a notice of intent to recall three members of the city council. The effort now underway to oust three members of the city council includes council members Scott Matas and Jan Pye along with Parks. The three have voted as a block and ruled the city for the last few years. “They cleaned up the street crime but swept it under the carpet at city hall,” said Pamela Berry one of the spokespersons for the recall. “It’s time we cleaned up city hall so we can have a safe city we are proud of and so our property values can increase. They have abused their powers and made everything an embarrassing mess.” Operation Recall Three Citizens of the recall committee named The Good Government Project say they are determined that Operation Recall 3 will be a huge success. According to their website www.goodgovproject.com the three council members are targeted to be defeated in the general election this November 6. The website says the city cannot wait one more year, until the scheduled 2013 council and mayor election, for a needed change of leadership. “We simply cannot afford Parks, Pye and Matas,” said Rita Del Dalle of The Project. “The three of them lost the city millions of dollars. With millions more on

the horizon from the power plant, wind, solar and residential development, we need smart people we can trust to be in charge. The three can save the city money if they resign now instead of continuing to drag the city down into the mud. Enough is enough.” The website said the trio running city hall has consistently voted to give local jobs to businesses out of town. They also said the council trio misguided economic development. Rubber Stamp Mayor Parks gained media notoriety for her frequent use of a rubber stamp signature on city checks. Before Parks earned her nickname as “The Rubber Stamp Mayor” she was reelected last year in a campaign competition with two other candidates running for the office. The incumbent was pitted against former mayor Alex Bias whose wife had recently been convicted of bank robbery. The other choice candidate was Robert Bentley, a three-time perennial candidate for city council, self-proclaimed attorney and ex-Army paratrooper. The Good Government Project said it intends to return decisions to being out in the open to voters of the city by first asking the question if Parks, Pye and Matas are fit or no longer fit to rule. Representatives of The Project said they are avoiding the expense of a special election by tailoring their actions to coincide with the general election. Placing the decision on the November 6 ballot also aims for a large voter turnout. Should the electorate dismiss Parks, Pye and Matas, that very election would also see a field of candidates competing for three vacating positions. The recall committee is claiming it’s our patriotic duty to clean house. American Obligation “Recall 3 is obvious,” said Valerie Vetrano of The Project. “There is no argument

Opinion

Americans have an obligation to do the right thing. We can’t be afraid of change and can’t ignore something that is broken. It’s our mission to fix things.” The recall committee is claiming to have a membership of dozens who are well-prepared with spirit and finances ready to oil the campaign. They also claim to be inspired by Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin and Paul Krassner.

The Good Government Project said that to succeed The Project will need additional volunteers. Sign-ups are underway on the website which announced that signature gatherers will soon be canvassing the city. Rock and Roll Recall They said if you want a new day for Desert Hot Springs and if you want to think positive then don’t be fooled again. They said there’s a devil in a blue dress and they can’t get no satisfaction. People seem strange and people are wicked when you’re alone. Let’s return from the dark side of the moon. “It’s a rock and roll recall,” said Morris Heller of The Project “And we’re not gonna take it anymore. This is a really big deal to fix this city and having this on the ballot means the people of our city will be in charge of our future. It’s time.” As the third recall in the city’s history and in naming three council people for replacement the Recall 3 campaign may be the often-troubled city’s much needed lucky charm. Matas said he had no comment on their recall. Parks and Pye were unavailable.

Recalling a Bright Memory Desert Hot Springs, CA - As a young girl, local Desert Hot Springs resident Sola, had a childhood most of us only read about. Her father was Sol M. Wurtzel, one of the original founders of 20th Century Fox Studios for the west coast in 1913. Her mother was a beautiful actress from the 1940s named Joan Valerie. She was the first Greek-American screen actress and was cast in over 40 films. Her most recognized roll was as Lady Jane in The Prince and The Pauper. “People like Marlon Brando and Marilyn Monroe would come to our home to visit.” Sola told me. “As a child, I remember being in the Andrew Sisters ‘(La Verne) home. They were half Greek as well.” Joan Valerie was a beauty by any standards and dated some of the more notorious actors of her time, most notable was was Clark Gable whom she dated during the filming of his 1947 movie The Hucksters. “I recall being in Mr. Grable’s home and I went to school with Doris Day’s son, Terry. He was a quiet boy with freckles.” Actors and actresses surrounded the young Sola’s life. “Mother had recently finished All About Eve where she became friendly with the legendary sex goddess, Marilyn Monroe.” Joan Valerie remained true to her Greek roots and religion throughout her lifetime and had been trained to take care of her own. When the only son of her oldest sister had a near death experience she took him in when the hospital could not keep him any longer. Being on the edge of death, the young former football player had trouble finding a reason to continue. Sola remembers, “Mother called Miss Monroe and explained the situation. Without hesitation the actress came to the house and spent two hours talking and encouraging him.” After Marilyn went on her way the young man soon recovered. “Miss Monroe kindly treated many people during her life time, including me!” Sola recalls. Sola is finishing a memoir of her mother’s life called, “Turkish Coffee At Midnight.” “I owe it to my mothers legacy to inform people about her. Besides it was an exciting childhood to remember.”

music worth buying

By Robert Kinsler

Kinslerscope

With the 2012 editions of both Coachella and Stagecoach in life’s rear-view mirror, I wanted to feature a couple of artists who played in Indio courtesy of my latest roundup of recommended releases.

Artist: The Jayhawks Title: Mockingbird Time

You might be interested in this if you like:

Dawes, Band of Horses, Buffalo Springfield Tell Me More: Anyone who saw the Jayhawks when they performed at the 2012 Stagecoach Festival knows how powerful the Minneapolis quintet was over the course of their all-too-brief set. Performing a set of sterling songs that magically blended classic rock and alt country, each wrapped in the most artful of arrangements, many of the highlights of the Jayhawks’ session came from their latest album “Mockingbird Time.” Released as a deluxe edition (Rounder Records) featuring the 12-song album and two bonus tracks on audio CD and a documentary and music videos on a DVD, the collection is filled with the great stuff for which the Jayhawks have long been known: first-rate songwriting, thoughtful and emotional arrangements and music that will stand the test of time in the tradition of rock’s pioneering greats. “Cinnamon Love” and “Hey Mr. Man” will please those who love the troupe’s classic rock sorties while

the bittersweet strains of Gram Parsonsmeet-Neil Young mix in the amazing “Guilder Annie.” “Pouring Rain at Dawn” is a delightful acoustic folk ballad, and “Tiny Arrows” strikes at the heart with its endless layers of musical and vocal layers.

Artist: Oberhofer Title: Time Capsules II

Artist: Gardens & Villa Title: Gardens & Villa

You might be interested in this if you like: Thomas Dolby, Moby, Radiohead’s “The King of Limbs” Tell Me More: One of the biggest surprises of Coachella 2012 was an early-afternoon set from Santa Barbara-based Gardens & Villa. The outfit’s self-titled debut disc (Secretly Canadian) delivers on the strong live turn from the band last month. Lead singer Chris Lynch has an enthralling tenor and is also able to fuse his skills playing the Native American flute into the band’s electronica pop sound, notably on the potent “Orange Blossom” and involving “Spacetime.” Material on the disc ranges from the dark, hypnotic “Black Hills” to the infectious experimental-elecronica drive on “Thorn Castles” and “Star Fire Power.” Gardens & Villa even mines the deep cutting-edge sonic terrain of Radiohead on the marvelous “Chemtrails.”

You might be interested in this if you like: Snow Patrol’s debut “Final Straw,” Miike Snow, the Shins Tell Me More: Youthful romance and inthe-moment experiences have fueled most of singer-songwriter Brad Oberhofer’s songs on “Time Capsules II” (Glassnote Records), but sharing the spontaneous excitement of someone else’s life is easy when the songs are as fun and crafty as those here. The driving, dance-styled “Away Frm U” and “oOoO,” heartfelt indie ballad “Yr Face” and textured anthem “I Could Go” recall the wide-ranging approach of Snow Patrol on its early masterwork “Final Straw,” but there is plenty of originality to celebrate across Oberhofer’s “Time Capsules II.”

ATRIX

By Chris Hermann. RLA Palm Springs,. CA - Welcome to what will be the first of many articles on local plants and gardens. I grew up enjoying the outdoor environment in suburban New Jersey and developed a passion for architecture in high school. While visiting potential colleges, I discovered landscape architecture – something that combined my passion for the outdoors and my desire to design and create. I received my Bachelors of Science in landscape architecture from Penn State University – currently ranked number one in the discipline for undergraduate programs. I moved to California in my early 20s and have been a registered landscape architect with the State of California 27 years and I have been practicing in the Coachella Valley for nearly 20 years. In December 2009, my business partners and I opened Aunt Effie’s Gardens, the only independently run garden center in Palm Springs. This unique combination of “real

extremes. We can see frost in the winter and temperatures that may reach 120 in the summer, plus temperatures can fluctuate 50 degrees in a single day. Evergreen plants grow nearly year round with short dormancy periods, with exceptional rates of growth for our arid climate if adequate watering is provided. Keep in mind that the heat and sun affects plants and that there are some plants that simply do not do well here even if put in the shade. The sun can cause leaf scorch or blotching and crisping of leaf edges. For this reason, in considering plants for a particular space, we take into consideration the Sunset Zone for the plant material, not just the USDA or American Horticultural Society Zone. The Sunset Zone takes a broad range of factors into account, including the extreme heat we experience here in the Coachella Valley. It is important to remember that when you plant to group plants by sun exposure, as well as water needs. A western exposure with the

aloe), salvia leucantha, and portulacaria afra (elephant’s food), just to name a few. The northern exposure is a bit tricky, as it must be used for shade plants, but it receives some sun in the summer months. Extremely sensitive plants in this exposure may need some protection from the sun. This exposure is good for things like ligustrum japonicum (Japanese privet), pittosporum tobira (mock orange), and cycas revoluta (sago palm), and succulents. For now, I bid you farewell – see you next week! Chris Hermann, CEO Aunt Effie’s Gardens, Inc. chris@aunteffiesgardens.com 760-778-6030 Phone

$ time” plant material experience and design opportunities has expanded my knowledge of planting and gardening challenges here in our local area. The wonderful thing about the desert is that you can plant just about any time, but you have to be selective about what you are trying to grow and where it will be planted. The best time to plant is from October through May before temperatures are continuously above 100 degrees. However, the summer time is also a good time to plant or transplant cacti and palms, and larger projects can be undertaken and planted as long as you’re willing to be consistent in after-planting care. The Coachella Valley is classified as a tropical desert, as it is an environment of

intense afternoon sun is the toughest planting location, and a south location is also a challenge as it receives sunshine year round. Select heat-loving plants when planting in a western or southern exposure. Agaves such as agave americana (multiple varieties available), agave geminiflora and agave murpheyi are great selections for these areas. Another section would be the leucophyllum species (most commonly known as Texas Ranger). An eastern exposure is a great place for both sun loving plants and plants that tolerate some shade, as they escape the direct afternoon sun. If you’re going for a desert-scape in your outdoor environment, this is a good place to plant aloe variegata (partridge breast aloe), aloe arborescens (tree

secrets of living longer

By Mr. Life Extension (Art Kunkin)

I00 Factors That Can Affect Your Lifespan (Part One) This week I would like to share with you some of the insights in a wonderful recent book by Dr. Trisha Macnair,M.D. titled The Long Life Equation. This book is based on hundreds of studies from top institutions throughout the world and offers 56 “best practices” for adding years to your life plus 44 other factors likely to subtract years from your life. One way of using this information is to start your calculations by estimating an average life span of 70 years and then adding or subtracting the years for each factor as they pertain to you. However, Dr. Macnair cautions that the resulting number you get is only an estimate, should not be taken too seriously and considered only as food for thought. Dr. Macnair says, “Life and health (are) far too complex for any rational scientist to be able to predict exactly how much could be attributed to any single factor in one person… No matter how much information we have, none of us can know for sure the exact moment of our death but we can build

a picture in our minds of the kind of risks to a long and healthy life that we face, and use this to improve our well being.” Of course, readers of this column are aware that the author of this column is now quite older than 70 years of age and has specific suggestions of what we can do now to possibly live for hundreds of years (See below). However, I completely agree that following Dr. Macnair’s advice about her list of 100 lifespan factors is very important to my own program for life extension. So here are the first ten: 1: THINKING OLD (Minus 5 Years). “Thinking old is the quickest step to speeding up your demise…Never utter the words ‘I’m too old (sometimes this might be true, but just don’t dwell on it). Once you’re over 18 no one needs to know it…” 2: HAPPINESS (Plus 9 Years). “Low levels of life satisfaction have been linked with mortality, while other research has found that happy people act in healthier ways, getting more exercise and taking part in more social activities than unhappy people do… In one study conducted by Cohen,

Doyle, Turner, Alper and Skoner in 2003, the least happy third of the participants were 2.9 times more likely to develop a cold than the happiest…” 3: OPTIMISM (Plus 8 Years). Dr. Macnair cites a study by the Mayo Clinic in the early 1950s that showed optimists live about 8 years longer on average than pessimists. 4: LOW SELF ESTEEM (Minus 4 Years). A study of nursing-home residents who were equally physically healthy found that the higher their self-esteem and the less depressed tey were, the longer they lived. 5: CONSCIENTIOUSNESS (Plus 2 Years). “The Terman Life-Cycle Study, which ran from 1922 to 1991, found that adults who weren’t very conscientious during their childhood died at a younger age.

My Kittens Butter My Floor By Skip Scown

Indio, CA - You’ve probably seen them, those videos of pranks involving ‘buttering’ a floor to cause someone to slip and fall. Well, my cats tried to do that to me, in my own bathroom. When I’m not actively bathing, I keep a few kitty toys in the bathtub, because the kitties love to bat them around. Think of it as kitty hockey. Several times a day I can hear them in there, swatting the toys about (most of the toys have bells). The animals enjoy it, and it keeps them from messing with the brica-brac in my small apartment. They are male and female litter mates and were 11 months old at the time of this event. It was a Wednesday morning and I was working from home (telecommuting) until after lunch. My computer is in my bedroom, which is next to the bathroom. I was at the computer desk, talking to a coworker on the phone, and the kitties were making noises like it was the Stanley cup playoffs happening there in the bathroom. The repetitive scufflejingle, scuffle-jingle was interrupted by a muffled thump, followed by a moment of silence, then scuffle-scuffle-scuffle. I figured that, since I was on the phone, it could wait; they still seemed to be enjoying themselves. This was my third mistake.

I use liquid bath soap in my tub/shower, and I keep a large refill of the stuff on the floor next to the tub. I had replenished the pump dispenser from the new, 1-1/2 qt. refill bottle just that morning, and had forgotten to move the bottle from the rim of the tub back to its place on the floor. Mistake number one. I had also failed to securely tighten the cap. Mistake number two. My phone call ended and I got up from my keyboard, walked the few steps to the bathroom, and stepped in, barefoot. There was most of the bottle of soap smeared all over the linoleum floor, and the kitties looked pretty slimy. My leading foot slipped straight out in front of me; I performed a remarkably ungainly fore-and-aft split; I went down on my trailing knee with a huge thump. The kitties leapt into the tub to escape what they assumed to be an imminent attack. I managed to close the bathroom door so that they couldn’t escape and get soap all over the place. I used my still-damp bath towel to mop up the bulk of the mess, and several more towels to wipe up the rest. That left me with two clean towels for the miscreant cats. Their punishment was the worst thing I could think of: the dreaded cat bath. How I

managed to keep them both in the tub and get them completely rinsed off without getting myself flayed in the process I’ll never know. I finally got them mostly dried off and moved them to my bed, while I rinsed the soap out of the other towels - I couldn’t throw them in the washer all full of foamy bath soap. My labors completed, I returned to my bedroom and found them mostly content,

and very soft. It was several days before they were able to forgive me for bathing them. At least they didn’t get sick from consuming any of the soap. Do you have a cute or interesting story about your pet? Please send story and pictures to: Editor@ desertstarweekly.com

Yoga-NextConference Focus on Music, Health and Spirituality

The Yoga-Next Conference was a oneday conference to further the goals of the Yoga-Next movement. It was held on May 5th 2012, at the Double Tree Hilton hotel in Culver City, CA (West LA). The primary mission of Yoga-Next is “To promote the comprehensiveness of Yoga as a science/art of self-realization.”

Arvind Chittmulla & Lila Smythe

The Problem: About 18 million people in the US practice Yoga today, many of those live right here in our desert dwelling cities. Are nearly 18 million people doing Yoga in the United States a problem? Well, yes. To most of these people, Yoga means the practice of āsanas, the physical postures that are taught and practiced in most Yoga studios. The Yoga Sutras composed by the sage Patanjali, a standard reference in modern Yoga education, describes Yoga as an eightfold path to self realization. This eightfold or eight limbed approach is obviously much more than āsanas. This message has been reiterated many times by prominent teachers all over the world. Yet, the majority of Yoga practitioners in the U.S. practice only āsanas. The reluctance and hesitance to embrace Yoga as a comprehensive physical, mental and spiritual practice, at such a systemic level, calls for an examination of why Yoga has been reduced to a bunch of physical poses. The Yoga-Next movement, championed by visionary Yoga teachers, practitioners and conscious Yoga businesses, seeks to identify the various causes for this situation and explore solutions for the same. It is a call to take the discussion of Yoga to the next level and it is about stepping up to a higher consciousness realm to solve problems created in the lower consciousness realm. Systemic problems are not caused overnight; they are also not caused by just one person. All the stakeholders: Yoga practitioners, Yoga studios, Yoga schools, makers of Yoga related products and certifying agencies, have contributed to the

reduction of Yoga to mostly, just poses. Yoga Next is taking a systemic attempt to solve systemic problems. A Solution Yoga-Next is a movement to reform the education and practice of Yoga in the US and perhaps in all of the western hemisphere. Yoga-Next Founder, Arvind Chittumalla is a Yogi, a Yoga teacher and a Yoga entreprenuer. He is the founder of the Moksha festival, Yogiloka.com and Aanand Saagar Wellness Sanctuary. He leads classes in meditation, pranayama, chanting, philosophy and Sanskrit at Aanand Saagar, a wellness sanctuary in Venice, CA. Arvind moved to Los Angeles in 2004 from Hyderabad, India. He took his first yoga lesson at the age of 9 and was introduced to Indian spiritual philosophies and he embraces a yogic lifestyle that integrates all the eight limbs of Raja Yoga. His meditation practice is a combination of Stabilizing Meditation, Analytical Meditation, Awareness Meditation (Vipassana), Pranayama (breath techiniques) and Chanting. The conference was the next step for the Yoga community to come together and address the following: 1. Improve Yoga Curricula, 2. Revised Certifications for Yoga Instructors and schools, 3. Ethics of Teaching Yoga and 4.Conscious Business Practices for the Yoga Industry. The conference was comprised of five panel sessions in total. The first four

Brew at the Zoo

Saturday night was quite a display at one of my favorite places in the desert. The Living Desert, is home to many exotic animals, reptiles, birds, even ants! A fundraising event put on by the staff at The Living Desert and underwritten by two of my favorite people: Franchesca Forrer, who is in charge of all events at the zoo, and Jim Casey, President and CEO of Integrated Wealth Management. I have had the extreme honor of working with both people on dozens of events. We have cohosted, co-sponsored, and I have even been paid for a few of them as a matter of fact. The Living Desert is the ultimate venue for everything from school field trips, corporate retreats, a weekend or lunch break from reality and my favorite, weddings. You want people to remember your wedding? You think exchanging rings while jumping out of a plane wondering if your chute will open might work? I’m thinking having cocktails and hors de oeuvres with giraffes, laughing with the hyenas, and dancing with the various animated and not so animated goats of the African WaTuTu Village is way cooler. As for Mr. Casey, well, he’s probably the largest supporter of everything known to mankind with his partner in crime, Jason. Also known as a renowned film producer, the guy pretty much has the world in the palm of his hands. Okay, now that my professional obligations are somewhat fulfilled at least enough to justify a food story, let’s do this. I was invited by TLD to be apart of an event called “Brew at the Zoo.” They say they are “saving wildlife one beer at a time.” Ha! I think this sounds like a challenge, a contest of sorts. A bunch of chefs, bakers, restauranteurs, service industry dudes and dudettes, under the desert moon surrounded by beer and familiar faces? What were they thinking! Pure genius I suppose. There was a sea of vendors ranging from beer to food to energy consultants to more beer and oh yes, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Alcoholic beverages, which a chef never gives in to, along with creative spiked cider, ales, and IPA’s were abundant. The energy was alive and I think even the wild was anything but, once the humans took control of the environment. Where our booth, “East Meets West Catering” was positioned we had a built in audience and booster squad of hyenas. Though I have a dry sense of humor, I tend to think these guys are just way to easily amused. We were serving Kobe beef and veal sliders with Vermont cheddar, secret sauce on a Hawaiian style slider roll. My inner hyena was definitely cackling when thinking of the competition, I mean really - beer. sliders. beer. more sliders. Enough said. Then the other chefs in our pit of ego maniacs in whites, salty with both sweat and straight up bitterness began their work.

I started to smell, hear and see all kinds of great things in pans, on grills, ladled, served, stacked and seasoned. Cava restaurant was serving a braised veal with grits, bing cherry compote and jus. Damn, I was not told there would be other talent. I watched the pristine brigade of the Renaissance Hotel slicing and sautéing old school style. The giant white haired and white Egyptian cotton cloaked, obviously European trained, weathered yet distinguished chef was in his element with his “I have been doing this for so long I do not even have to open my eyes” expression, droopy dog eyes and jowls. This dude was a badass. I bet he was the epitome of classically trained chef in the 80’s. I imagine him running through hotels with a staff of thousands and banquets of ten thousands just getting after it. while stting in the chef’s office until 2:30 a.m. drinking the same watered down 7 and 7 trying to get through his ordering whilst dealing with his wife wanting to know his ETA. Ok Aaron, snap out of it. Its as though I know the feeling. Sorry babe, if your reading this, it is totally fictional and had no relation to any personal experience. Phew! All in all the night brought me back to many memories, an inspiration I admittedly need at season’s end and a reunion with myself and colleagues. I saw so many smiles, laughter and successes. I was really in my element. What was so amazing was everyone was perfect and happy. This by far, is one the most well thought out and meticulously thoughtful of events. My toque off to every vendor who donated, citizen who gave their cash and

time and an ovation from my brigade to Franchesca and Jim. You guys easily outdid yourselves, per usual and should be very proud. FYI to Franchesca; the hyena with the annoying laugh was stealing beers and selling them to the Watutu donkeys for like 3 bucks a pop. They were NOT wearing bracelets and I did NOT authorize the consumption of those sliders. I was shocked and appalled. Nice work everyone.

Nowadays, musicians have access to more kinds of music than ever before in history. CSUSB’s music curriculum - with courses in electronic music, performance, world music, historical studies, music education and music theory - reflects that diversity through its programs for students who wish to enter the teaching profession, become a professional musician, work in the music industry, pursue an advanced degree or simply enrich their education. Many graduates of the music program find employment as elementary, secondary and university music educators; as performers in symphony orchestras, opera, musical theater, and jazz settings; and as composers, arrangers, and technicians in the entertainment industry. Others apply their musical background to careers in business, law, medicine and library science. The music department’s liberal studies courses provide elementary teachers with the experience and knowledge necessary to make music an effective tool in their classrooms. Minors in recording

arts, jazz studies, and general music provide students in other majors with the opportunity to enrich their educational experiences. The CSUSB Palm Desert Campus is located at 37-500 Cook St. For more information about the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus, contact Mike Singer in the campus’s Office of Public Affairs at (760) 341-2883, ext. 78107 or msinger@csusb.edu.

the mosh pitt

Interior Decorating On A Dime Rancho Mirage, CA - Back in the day when jobs and money were plentiful, shopping for furniture was a whole different experience. It was actually enjoyable. You could peruse Architectural Digest for design ideas, Better Homes and Gardens for furniture and appliance suggestions and, there were always the high-end furniture stores to cruise for whatever else you might need. You could get lost in Legacy in Rancho Mirage on Highway 111 -- beautiful furniture of every design with an emphasis on styles especially suited for the desert. Room settings fit for a king. Every last detail accounted for, including the porcelain statues and leather knickknacks that spell the difference between beautiful, and over-the-top knockoutextraordinary-out-of-this-world exquisite. Oh yeah, those were the good old days, if you didn’t mind plopping down $9,000 or more for a bed, and another $20,000 for dresser, night stands, and the other accoutrements that signal you have made it to the upper crust. Might I remind you that was all just one room! You still have the dining room; kitchen, living room, den and the super stupendous 3-D surround sound video theater to go! Don’t bother with a check or a credit card. Just give the sales rep your banker’s business card or number. Tell ‘em, “Call Louie, he’ll take care of everything.” If you didn’t have the bank account to match your extraordinary taste, there were less expensive alternatives like Mathes Brothers in Indio, and Ashley Furniture in Palm Desert. And, for the truly budget conscious there was Linders in Cathedral City, which carried more middle-of-the-road lines of furniture at much more affordable prices (i.e.: $1,500 to $2,000 for the bedroom set). Well, Mathes Brothers and Ashley Furniture are doing well, but Legacy and Linders bit the dust in the last few months. They just could not survive the recession. So, last year, when faced with the task of furnishing a new home, I was stuck. Where do I go on my meager budget, and how do I pull it all together in this depressing economy? Architectural digest still tantalized and teased me, but there just weren’t the bucks for the Buck Rogers. What could I do? I had to fill three bedrooms, a dining room, living room, a library/den and assorted other odd little areas that needed something to fill them, like the little “grottos” for lack of a better word in the entry way, and some inlets in the dining room crying for a wine rack or linen chest or side table of some sort. My most immediate need was a bed. Being of the short and stocky persuasion, an eastern king is the ideal size, but they are hard to find in the West. If you ask to see one, there may be one on the showroom floor, but more often

than not, they will tell you, “Oh, we can order that.” So, I searched Craigslist for eastern kings and was surprised (you might even say, shocked and astounded) to find one listed by a small boutique Palm Springs hotel that was in the process of remodeling. It was perfect, and in generally good condition, considering the “workout” I expect it had received in the line of duty. The total price was $250, and it included two matching night stands, plus they threw in a small cabinet, a side table, a beautiful mirror in matching dark wood, and two lamps. What a deal! Now I was on my way! But, I still needed a dining room table, chairs, side chairs, book cases, and furniture for the two guest bedrooms. Finding nothing suitable online, I began searching the thrift shops. I was introduced to them by a friend who always buys his clothes at one, and with good result. Shoes, nice suits and slacks made from fine materials and in excellent condition. So, I thought, “Why not?” I’m game. I’ll give it a shot.

So I visited Collectors Corner Thrift Store and found a nice sofa of neutral tone, meaning it would go with anything for $60. Then a recliner from NU4U Thrift in a shade close enough to match and compliment the sofa. The dining room table was a departure. Angel View had a nice light wood dining table and matching chairs. I could not find one in dark woods, so I made a major design departure, realizing that you could have different colors and styles in different rooms. That was a lightening bolt for a design challenged person like me. It’s somewhat minimalist, but it serves the purpose, and besides, in the desert you do most of your dining on the patio anyways. Then at Gypseland, I was able to find a potpourri of small decorative items and sculptures for $5 to $10

By R.G. Pitt apiece, and at another Angel View Store they had two twin beds for $25 apiece. All in all, I was able to decorate an entire house for a grand total of $510. The only additional expense was a brand new king sized pillow-top mattress direct from a manufacturer for $500. Total $1,010. Best of all, it looks nice, and in its own way, it all fits together perfectly.

astrologicalaffects By Guru Ren Yogamaya, M.A. E-RYT 500

Sun In Taurus: Most Affected is Taurus and All Earth Signs. The month is in the sign of Taurus. For Taurus: All Venusian themes such as Love, beauty, the senses and food will rule supreme until May 20. A more heightened awareness of family, growth or stubbornness, possessiveness and the pleasures in Life. The best side of Taurus is seen in their home, hospitality, gracious generosity, culinary talents and, their ability to make things grow, whether it be a penny into a dollar or a seed into a flower. The key is to know when to not to remain steadfast, to move a little quicker and to leave justice in the hands of the Universe. For All Signs: Progress may continue at a slower pace. Stubbornness for the right or wrong reason(s) can test patience. Careful evaluation on how financial resources are spent can save money and buy more time. Fortunately, the higher conscious energy of this Sun will remind us to take it at a slower pace (at times cautious), so that we can fully enjoy the benefits of the pleasure principle. Celebrate this month by embracing the senses by learning Pratyahara (devoid of the senses). Best Sacred Geometry: Hexahedron (Earth) Best Yantra: The colors Green and Pink Venus in Gemini Most affected are Gemini and All Air Signs (including Libra and Taurus as the planet Venus is their ruling sign). This transit began on April 3 and will continue until August 7, with a retrograde happening in May. For Gemini: The planet of Love and beauty will be in your sign for a long stretch; the first three weeks being the best. Enjoy your new popularity and the good possibility of romantic interests. If you are already involved, this can be a very romantic or creative time for you, one of the best times of the year for your love Life. However, when Venus is in any sign of the Zodiac, the senses are heightened as well. Watch that you don’t over-indulge in food, drink or others. Exercise and refresh yourself: Enjoy an experience for two. Two for the road, Kama-Sutra, Partner Yoga or one dessert, two spoons. For All Signs: The social side of Venus enters changeable Gemini. The energies here are even more playful or flirtatious. Various, more social people and situations may seem to grab your attention, but only for a little while as in the end substance will win over flightiness. The temptation for air signs “not to…” mirror the classic, Buddhist teachings of “not two” but rather one. Respectfully sticking to the one truth or the one person who is genuine in your Life reflects spiritual maturity. Pluto Retrograde. Most Affected are Scorpio, Capricorn and Aries. This transit began on April 10 and will continue until September 17. For Scorpio: The energies of your ruling planet turn inward for a long stretch. The challenge is that your usual, powerful drive may be more subdued. The best is the opportunity to turn inward to review, examine your spirituality, emotions and any dark side. For Capricorn: Hard lessons from the past may come back to haunt you. Embrace the good that this has provided. Revisit the lessons and education from the past that will help you in your Life. For Aries: Opportunities related to spirituality or career may feel stalled. It’s only a temporary slow down; consider the possibility that this may work in your favor. For All Signs: We may feel like turning inward, reflecting on our personal or professional resources. The Good of this is that secrets or important, useful information

that were hidden may come to light, The challenges are increased insecurities or how to handle the new info. When in doubt, seek clarity, ask or inquire first before taking action and give the benefit of the doubt. Week of May 10: Mercury Into Taurus Most Affected are Taurus, Gemini and Virgo. This transit began on May 9 and will continue until May 24. For Taurus: With the planet of communications and electrical impulses in your sign, you may feel a surge of energy moving easily, supporting your communications, travel and gadgetry. Coupled with Jupiter also in your sign, your mind may be expanded. Try putting your focus on to spiritual literature or videos. For Gemini:You may feel a grounding energy for the next three weeks that will help you to complete unfinished projects. This begins at first with your mind. Resolve to make it so. For Virgo: Your mental rapprochement may become more methodical and lead you to take deliberate, slower steps. This will be a very good thing for your state of mind and nervous system. The sign of Taurus may figure more prominently. For All Signs: Approaching all matters related to communications, travel and relations with Mother Earth can proceed with patience. The Challenge: Being stubborn or resisting a new or different idea may leave us stuck in one place. The Best: We can approach most matters with a constructive viewpoint that may bring a solution to a problem. Affects From the Full Moon in Scorpio: Most affected are Scorpio and All Water Signs. The recent Full Moon occurred May 5-6. For Scorpio: A continuation of news and illumination within your inner-sight. Your feelings will affect all areas in your Life. If you are happy and content with the knowledge that all is really in divine order, you’ll glide right through this week. If you are unhappy and your horns are blowing this message loudly, many will ask themselves and question what is your real story. As Pluto is retrograde, some Scorpios may feel inhibited and this may be better for your innerreflection on all matters in your Life. For All Signs:

The affects from this “super-moon” continues with images in the news of the extreme behavior of man and that of the symbolic images of the misuse of power. We are again at a crucial time of transformation as a collective society. Individually, how we conduct ourselves, our personal transformation is more important than ever. Scorpio element is water. With the Sun in Taurus, Taurus’ element is Earth. The water cleanses the earth, you; your body is a apart of this Earth. Consider fasting to cleanse your body this week by using the benefits of water. Best Mantra: VAM. Best Color: Orange or Peach. Ren Yogamaya is a Yoga teacher registered at the highest level with the Yoga Alliance, a writer, the published author of the book, EAT BY COLOR: Foods, Colors and The Chakras, a syndicated columnist and she is a natural channel for Universal Light.

By Andrew Morales College Of the Desert will be hosting a second annual summer basketball league for local high school teams. “We’ve got ten high school boy’s teams signed up, and we’re introducing the girl’s league this year. There are eight girls teams signed for the girl’s league,” says College Of the Desert assistant basketball coach Jerry Carmona. Last year’s installment of the C.O.D. Summer Basketball League featured seven boys teams from Yucca Valley, Desert Christian, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, Desert Mirage, and Xavier Prep schools. La Quinta won the league with a 7-1 record. These same boy’s teams are returning for this year’s league along with Joshua Springs, Cathedral City and Shadow Hills schools, who are making their debut for the league.

Phone: 9am-4pm: 760-936-6402 • 4pm-11pm: 760-898-8336 The girl’s summer league in their inaugural season include Yucca Valley, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Shadow Hills, Cathedral City, 29 Palms, Indio, and Desert Mirage schools. The league went from June 14 to July 7 last year, every Tuesday and Thursday night from 5 – 9 p.m. This year’s summer league will run from June 10 to July 18. It plans to be bigger than last year. The boy’s teams will be playing on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5 – 10 p.m., and the girl’s teams on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 – 9 p.m. The full schedule will be released by C.O.D. in the upcoming weeks. Admission into the games is free. Come one, come all for summer basketball and support your local high schools and College Of the Desert.
