[ Coconut Wireless: The week in review ] HYPER LOCAL First the carrot, now the stick: Back in May, you’ll recall, the state offered delinquent taxpayers a one-month window to make good on their debts without penalty. Now, Maui County is taking a different approach. Beginning in October, the County will post a list of the “top 25 delinquent accounts” and the names of all taxpayers who’ve been delinquent for three years or more at In addition to giving everyone a much-needed dose of schadenfreude, the list is obviously meant to motivate through shame. The County says it’s owed more than $8.6 million in unpaid property taxes; recovering even a fraction of that would be a significant windfall in these belt-tightening times. So how do you find out if your name’s on the list (if you don’t know already)? Call the Real Property Tax Division at 270-7697 or visit… It’s probably hopeless for a man to support Go Topless Day and be taken seriously. And yet, honestly, my intentions are pure. (See—you’re snickering, aren’t you?) I bring this up because on August 23, sunbathers at Little Beach celebrated (by doing what they do every day) with like-minded nudies across the country who feel, according to, that “women have the same constitutional right to be bare chested in public places as men.” To prove the point, the site presents two photos: one of an obese man with his shirt off, the other of a woman (with comparablesized breasts) being forced to cover up. This has always made such intrinsic sense to me I’m flabbergasted it’s still open for debate. Yet another example of the repressive Puritan claws that are still imbedded in the American consciousness… LOCAL To truly understand how far the bar has been lowered, how completely our leaders have devolved into a gaggle of bickering teenagers, listen to the (supposedly) joking asides offered by elected officials. The latest example: Sen. Dan Inouye paid a visit to Oahu this week to meet with the governor, the four mayors and other key players to get a stimulus money progress report. As reported by the AP (though it was buried at the end of the story), Inouye responded to the mostly positive assessments by saying his fellow Senators would be “extremely

envious when I tell them we had a hearing and no one screamed.” Much truth is said in jest… So the Superferry has gone from inter-island vessel to bankrupt boondoggle to…verb. I first caught wind of this courtesy of Brad Parsons over at the Hawaii Superferry unofficial blog (, who pointed to an August 20 Honolulu Advertiser story in which Rep. Neil Abercrombie said he was concerned Oahu’s rail project was “going to be Superferried.” I was prepared to give Abercrombie credit for coining the phrase, but a Google search reveals Neil was late to the party. In a July 24 letter to the Advertiser, Bill Spencer, president of the Hawaii Venture Capital Association, uses the term in a different context. But Spencer isn’t the originator either. The earliest use of the word I could find is a June 9 comment connected to a Honolulu Star-Bulletin story about, again, the rail project, posted by “railfan.” So until further notice, congrats, railfan—you got there first… Occasionally, I subject myself to FOX News. Not because I enjoy yelling at my television (though that can be fun), but because it’s important to hear what the other side is saying, especially when the other side holds sway over millions of allegedly sentient, voting-age citizens. During one of my recent sojourns into the belly of the GOP spin machine, I caught a Sean Hannity segment about health care subtly titled “Universal Nightmare.” (Yes, they used the blooddrippy Freddy Krueger font.) The piece was an “investigative report” by correspondent Griff Jenkins (totally his real name), who flew to Hawaii to examine the Keiki Care program—and by “examine” I mean “ham-fistedly present it as a cautionary tale about how governmentsubsidized health care is doomed to fail.” (Hannity set the bit up by calling Keiki Care a “scheme,” conjuring images of a bunch of cigar-chomping bureaucrats cackling as they hatch a diabolical plot to make sure kids can go to the doctor.) After the toss, here’s how Griff kicks things off: “Welcome to Hawaii,

There oughta be a law. Or, actually, no law. home to surfing and the aloha spirit and the childhood home of President Barack Obama. It’s also home to a failed experiment in universal health care, an experiment whose lessons seem lost on its most famous son.” Of course, Keiki Care wasn’t a “universal” health care plan, but a limited, targeted (and admittedly flawed) attempt to cover children who weren’t eligible for Medicaid but whose parents couldn’t afford private insurance. But it did involve some government money (half of the funding came from the state, the other half from the private Hawaii Medical Services Association). So in the eyes of the rabid pro-privatization crowd it was one step away from re-branding the state flag with a hammer and sickle. Griff mixes in sound bites from a few politicians, including Gov. Lingle (who pulled the plug on Keiki Care last November) and

OVERHEARD... Man #1: ”It’s amazing what people

will put up with.” Man#2: “You’re easily amazed.” - Perusing The Maui News at the Wells St. bus stop in Wailuku

Republican state Senator Sam Slom, and in the end concludes that “as the president and the Democratic-led Congress rush in an unprecedented fashion towards universal health care for all Americans…they may want to take a closer look at how that worked in the president’s birth state.” Great idea, Griff. Someone should really do that… NOT LOCAL Speaking of FOX News—I know, I’m a glutton for punishment—here’s what the top headline on their Web site said on August 25: “Agency Admits 425G of Federal Stimulus Ended up…Behind Bars.” (Can’t you just hear the prisondoor-clanking-shut sound effect?) Apparently, 3,900 $250 stimulus checks were mailed to incarcerated individuals. The horror! The outrage! The liberal waste! But wait: way down in the ninth paragraph we find out that more than half the inmates were actually owed the checks because they weren’t in jail at the time they were cut. The remaining 1,700 who were mistakenly sent checks represent…wait for it…0.000000019 percent of the total recipients.

Wasted resources Mayor Tavares wants to use wastewater to grow algae for biofuel. That’s a bad idea n a statement calculated to deflect attention from the recent hubbub over County wastewater injection wells, Mayor Charmaine Tavares announced plans to use the water to grow algae, and to use the algae as a source of fuel. It’s an idea that sounds good on the surface, but some experts say it’s the wrong approach. Speaking last Thursday at a Lahaina Civic Center public hearing, with the Environmental Protection Agency collecting comments, Tavares said she wants to “find a way to take


the 3 to 5 million gallons of treated wastewater per day that the Lahaina Wastewater Reclamation Facility puts into four injection wells…and use the water to grow algae in lined holding ponds.” The meeting was the second held by the EPA to solicit public comments regarding a County permit application seeking a 10-year renewal to continue using the Lahaina injection wells. Last November, 70 people turned out at a hearing, including water quality specialists, state resource managers and marine

Growing algae in onshore holding ponds would merely use treated wastewater as a growing medium, not dispose of it. the end of July more than 180 people had written to the EPA in opposition to the 10-year permit. Support was voiced for treating the effluent to stricter R-1 standards, expanding re-use for agricultural and irrigation purposes and promoting greater water conservation efforts. But Tavares and Department of Environmental Management Director Cheryl Okuma contend that meeting the EPA’s permit conditions for more stringent water quality would cost the County—and thus ratepayers—in the range of $20-$30 million. They noted federal grant funds for upgrading wastewater treatment facilities have been absent for the past 20 years, despite EPA mandates to meet new standards. Thus, Tavares, as reported in The Maui News, felt her plan would be a better use of taxpayers’ money. But beyond her target agenda of “100 percent diversion from [the county’s 18] injection wells,” details of her “plan” are fuzzy at best. “I don’t know how long it will take to implement,” Tavares said. “We won’t know until there’s a plan devised in the next 12 to 18 months. I can’t even say 10 years; it just depends.” Algae, regarded by some as the Holy Grail of biofuels, has seen a recent surge in interest, with Shell Oil, Exxon and Dow Chemical investing hundreds of millions in research. The Maui News reported that the Department of Environmental Management is “in preliminary discussions with Oahu-based Hawaii Biofuels to set up an algae harvesting and processing facility.” The concept seems odd, since growing algae in onshore holding ponds would merely use treated wastewater as a growing medium, not dispose of it. Ultimately, water re-use must focus on agricultural irrigation, to supplement existing use at resorts and golf courses. The Maui News incorrectly reported that sugar cane and pineapple are among the current users of the 22 percent of the county’s treated wastewater, with the remainder injected

for ethanol production on more than 200,000 acres of collectively owned ag lands. A year ago, they announced a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to research development of algae oils into jet fuel. “Over the past 40 years algae has been developed as an effective and proven natural approach for waste treatment,” says Robert Henrikson, a 30-year algae entrepreneur and president of Earthrise, the world’s largest spirulina farm. “But producing biodiesel from algae grown on wastewater, while trying to solve a real waste treatment problem, is a bridge too far. Commercially competitive biodiesel from algae is probably 10 years off, maybe longer. Successful technology at scale is not yet developed, and long-term research and development is needed. Let the big players like Exxon, Shell [and] BP…bear the long term risks to commercialize yetunproven algae-to-biofuel technology.” Continued Henrikson: “Maui County, trying to solve a waste treatment problem, should not be taking the additional risk to pursue R&D for algal biofuels with taxpayer money, just because algae biofuel investment has gained a lot of publicity or because some biofuel venture needs a project. Maui has a waste treatment problem to clean up, and algae can address the problem, but should not be part of an algae-tobiodiesel venture with all its separate and additional risks.” Microalgae, says Henrikson, is especially effective for waste treatment in warm, sunny climates. He proposes a series of algal ponds that would create oxygen and break down toxic waste. “There is no toxic sludge to dispose of,” he says. “The treated water effluent can be used for irrigation, or using a reverse osmosis filter, turned back into potable water.” MTW

State of mind

Back on track

Reflections on 50 years of statehood half century ago, I was just old enough to be aware of Hawaii’s induction as a state. A 50th star was added to the flag for our daily pledge of allegiance at my elementary school in Madison, Wisconsin. The configuration of Old Glory that had flown since 1912, when Arizona and New Mexico were added, was now revised to add stars for Alaska and Hawaii. I also recall the statehood stamp, which my grandfather sent to my older brother and me. Unfortunately, Grandpa Parsons committed a philatelic faux pas: the torn corner of the envelope revealed the words, “of Issue,” part of the postmark. Had he saved the entire envelope, with its full postmark, “First Day of Issue,” it would have been of much greater value to collectors. Five decades of statehood have brought a mixed bag of changes to Hawaii. The islands’ leaders have embraced the tourist economy and Mainland corporations have had a homogenizing effect, supplanting plantation-based rural lifestyles with fastpaced consumer culture. Waves of investment capital have washed in from both sides of the Pacific, though recently the tide has ebbed, leading to an increased emphasis on energy and food independence. There is also talk of another kind of independence: establishment of a Hawaiian sovereign nation and a recognition of the 1893 overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii by sugar-planting business interests, backed by U.S. Marines. With Hawaii-born Barack Obama the White House, there is renewed hope that the long-stalled Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Bill, better known as the Akaka Bill, will pass. But while it seeks to establish a self-governing entity within the United States—similar to the Navajo or Lakota nations— many Native Hawaiians don’t want to be governed under the auspices of the same government that forcibly imprisoned their queen, took their land and turned them into second-class citizens.


awaii’s star on the American flag holds much significance, and has been a catalyst for many changes, but another star may be equally vital. Hoku le‘a (“glad star”) is the Hawaiian name given to the star Arcturus, a guiding navigational beacon

in the heavens above the Pacific. The star inspired the name of the twin-hulled sailing canoe that first launched in 1975 to rediscover the ancestral skills that brought Polynesians to Hawaii. The Hokule‘a’s ongoing voyages serve as metaphors for the cultural revitalization of the Hawaiian people. The resurgence of Hawaiian language, customs and values has helped bring awareness to unresolved disputes and injustices over “ceded” lands. At an

they were around/And saw highways on their sacred grounds/How would they feel if they knew ’bout this modern city life?” he following day, a family outing took us from Haiku through Makawao and on to Grandma’s Coffee Shop in Keokea. Soothed by the geographic isolation, the serene mana, I realized this area of Maui is as inspiring and rejuvenating as when I first visited 30 years ago.


The wounds are still raw. Admission Day sign-waving protest near the Kahului Airport, Hawaiians and supporters of all ages donned black T-shirts emblazoned with “Nationhood” on the back, above a warrior’s profile, and “1893 Ku‘e” (to oppose or resist) on the front. Hand-painted signs read, “‘Ceded’ lands are stolen lands,” “Kanaka want justice” and “Americans stole our identity.” A row of keiki stood together, each with a single letter on their chest, spelling, “Fake state.” I recognized many of the participants from community meetings, where for years they have brought forward cultural concerns, often with patience wearing thin, as the roads to justice appear to be as sticky as two-finger poi. Yet monumental changes have occurred, such as the return of the Island of Kaho‘olawe—used for decades as a Naval firing range—to the people of Hawaii. The former “Target Isle” is now undergoing a massive restoration project, striving to heal more than a century of abuse. Returning home from the rally, I searched the Internet for a song I’d heard on the drive home—Israel Kamikawiwo‘ole’s, “Hawaii ’78.” On YouTube I found a video of Bruddah Iz passionately singing his astonishing anthem to modern-day Hawaii. “If just for a day our king and queen/Would visit all these islands and saw everything/How would they feel ’bout the changing of our land?/Could you imagine if

Adding to the dreamlike quality, we heard Hawaiian music from the deck of Grandma’s as we approached. A couple, Fred and Pema, played ukulele while Fred sang. With a voice remarkably like Bruddah Iz, he transported me once again into the reverie of “Hawaii ’78.” “How would they feel?/Would their smiles be content/Rather than cry?/Cry for the gods, cry for the people/Cry for the lands that were taken away/And in it you’ll find Hawaii.” In between songs, Fred spoke of the long wait for Hawaiians to move onto lands set aside for them more than 80 years ago. Though often the lands given back were the least desirable places, he said the Keokea Homelands were among the most lush and beautiful. Fred Lacar was the last baby born in Kula hospital before statehood, Pema told me. He was also born a few months before Iz. “People say I sound like him,” said Fred, “but I say he sounds like me.” As Fred launched into another ballad I sat back. My heart was full. Overcome with emotion, I could think only one thing: “Lucky we live Hawaii.” MTW

We were beginning to get worried. After opening the year with an impressive streak of 11 consecutive minor decoy cases, the Adjudication Board has been pretty quiet on the getting-kids-to-buybooze front. In fact, since April (spanning three meetings; they took May off) the board hasn’t heard a single minor decoy case. Ask and ye shall receive. The agenda for the September 3 Adjudication meeting features two minor decoy complaints, against the Shell station in Paia (a town where we’ve been getting increased reports of LC presence) and Pacific Fish Market in Lahaina. Since both are pleading no contest, that automatically means two more successful busts. (To be fair: there are also three counts of over-serving on the September docket—all stemming from the same incident—against Lulu’s in Lahaina.) Tacking on those two new minor decoy cases, even with their spring and early summer slump the LC could still match or surpass its record-breaking 2008 total of 21 stings, which nearly doubled the previous year’s count. Naturally, this increasing zealousness won’t sit well with establishments who find themselves on the wrong end of the stings, or those who think the whole notion of minor decoy stings is a waste of resources and borders on outright entrapment. But if there’s one lesson we’ve learned on this beat, it’s don’t count on things changing any time soon.

Lonely Japanese men (and a few women) with rich imaginations have created a thriving subculture (“otaku”) in which they have all-consuming relationships with figurines that are based on popular anime characters. “The less extreme,” reported a New York Times writer in July, obsessively collect the dolls. The hardcore otaku “actually believes that a lumpy pillow with a drawing of a (teenage character) is his girlfriend,” and takes her out in public on romantic dates. One forlorn “2-D” (so named for preferring relationships with two-dimensionals) said he would like to marry a real, 3-D woman, “[b]ut look at me. How can someone who carries this (doll) around get married?”

Thousands of Koreans, and some tourists, uninhibitedly joined in the messy events of July’s Byryeong City Mud Festival, which glorifies the joys of an activity usually limited to pigs. Mud wrestling, mud-sliding, a “mud prison” and colored mud baths dominated the week’s activities, but so, unfortunately, did dermatological maladies, which hospitalized 200 celebrants.

(2) A 22-year-old man was arrested in Kitsap, Wash., in August after tossing a barrage of rocks at people, leading some to chase him until police intervened. The man explained that he is preparing to enter Ultimate Fighting Championship contests but had never actually been in a fight and wanted experience at getting beaten up.



Britain’s National Health Service of Sheffield issued a “guidance” to schools this summer to encourage teaching students alternatives to premarital sex, including masturbation.

Re the feature on Requests Music [“Last Requests,” August 20]: As an old jazz singer, I must tell you I had the pleasure of dropping by Requests one day and to my surprise, a treasure chest of jazz was dropped off seconds before my arrival. The gem stones in that ol‘ box included everything from Miles Davis to Dizzy Gillespie, Chic Corea to Keith Jarrett, Betty Carter to Flora Purim. I was blown away. Through the heat, dust and crowded shelves of ye old record store I have managed to build a collection of music that keeps me scatting daily. So…skeedee bop shoe-wee bop to Requests for having survived the financial tsunami of 2009. Keep the music flowing and’s the pause that refreshes.

So helicopters come over my land regularly. So what? They provide drama and excitement, since otherwise I would just have the blue sky and nice scenery to look at. And did you say vice cops left “sheepishly”? Really? Sheepishly? Sounds more like a projection. If I had nothing to do all day but get paid to drive around the county looking at people’s greenhouses, once I saw what was in one and I had milked the outing for as many onthe-clock hours as I could squeeze out of it, I think I would leave. Just leave, you know? Not “sheepishly”. But maybe it felt better for Mr. Farmer to see two sheep leaving his property than to see two human beings just schlepping through their day. Dunno why. Maybe it’s that drama thing again. Oh, but hey! This article is about stopping drama, right? Maybe you could tone down the drama by not getting your panties in a bunch about some helicopters.

Grinning, Hollingsworth clenches his fists and mimes mashing them into the table. “It’s The Throwdowns!” “I bet Shaggy put him up to it,” says Erin Smith, laughing along.


smiles when the subject arises—as they are with most subjects. But seriously, don’t call them Erin Smith and the Throwdowns. With the heavy exposure Smith, a Toronto native, has gotten since she hit the Maui scene, it’s no wonder the misnomer lingers. I’m sitting with the band (sadly sans Clark, whose missing energy is notable) at the South Shore Tiki Lounge, at a table set up in the very spot Smith gigs solo weekly. Her acoustic work garners a healthy following, enough to “pay my bills,” Smith says. “She’s like our spokesperson,” says

By the second song of their practice session, it was resoundingly clear that this band is anything but the Erin Smith show. The band formerly known as Erin Smith and the Throwdowns wisely whittled their name last year. But—as they prepare to drop their first album—they’re still fighting to get people to recognize the change. Granted, as Smith suspects, some of it may be the intentional, lighthearted needling from those who know it’s one of the group’s touchiest topics. They’re still all

Clark in a later phone interview. “One of the things she does really well is talk to people. She’s really professional.” I first meet Smith at Requests in Wailuku. She was out working her band beat, hitting the streets with a pile of posters and a stack of tickets, promoting The Throwdowns’ big August 28 release party for their debut effort, Don’t Slow


Down, at Mulligan’s on the Blue. Smith enthusiastically chatted up the guys at Requests and was mindful to include me in the conversation, which I found pleasant, as I’d made no mention of my role as reporter. In a place that’s often uncomfortably sauna-like, she’s literally kept her Canadian cool: dressed in grayish periwinkle ensemble, her hair done up enviably in chic frizzle-free curls. Even when we parted, hugging local-style, she was chill to the touch—something I would later notice to be a strangely perpetual state, even after a raucous practice session. he attention heaped on Smith is by no means undeserved. She’s a vivacious go-getter who packs stiletto high-class into her fiery frontwoman kick. You really can’t blame those drawn in by her magnetism. Already, I’m guilty of it myself. But there is a downside: the rest of the band is often relegated to second-fiddle status, given little more than an obligatory nod. Because of this, I was ill prepared for the complete package that is The Throwdowns. By the second song of their practice session during my first evening spent with them, it was resoundingly clear that this band is anything but the Erin Smith show.


Each member is well-schooled and well-practiced, each plays beautifully to their individual strengths and each engages in a marvelously open, collaborative manner. “We really believe in each other, that’s what makes it all run,” says Smith. At first, I found their perpetual positivity to be formulaic and even a tad insipid. They seem to shy away from speaking about themselves and instead prefer to tout the talents of one another, and everything—everything—is “cool.” It just didn’t seem reasonable that a rock outfit, even one aspiring to edge-maintaining accessibility, could be so genuinely positive and willingly unselfish. But I quickly discovered that their love—and yeah, I’ll call it love—for one another is legitimate. Hollingsworth is the most buoyant in his proclamations of adoration for his bandmates. “I’m in the band of my dreams!” he says in a Facebook post made after their gig at The Gap at the Shops at Wailea (which earned their single, “Kihei Town,” some national exposure). But who cares if they like, let alone love, each other? They’ve gotta be good, right?

The best thing about The Throwdowns is how easy it is to root for them. Their good nature is no act; once you get used to it, it’s incredibly refreshing. here’s no doubt that the band has some haters. Their win at last year’s X 92.5 Battle of the Bands, a four-round showdown culminating in a “battle royale” held at the Hard Rock Cafe, ignited some backlash. But upon closer inspection, the hate is hollow—mostly sour grapes from those with vested interest, or whose masculinity seems challenged by a girl with guts and grit (from Canada, no less), or from those who are disappointed by the rock scene on Maui, and insist on comparing it to the homes they left rather than appreciating what it does have to offer and participating in its growth. It’s also worth noting that The Throwdowns have come a long way in the last year. Their early efforts showed talent, spunk and promise, but they were undeniably raw and rough around the edges. Enter the band’s newest member, and missing ingredient: all instrument-wielding Shaw. Shaw, Clark’s brother-in-law, was initially brought on board to mix a few tracks. But after catching Throwdown fever, with a little persuading from Clark, he returned to Maui to complete the foursome they now seem destined to have become. Born on Maui, but raised a Big Island boy, Shaw spent seven years in California, where he attended the prestigious Musicians Institute


College of Contemporary Music. “Not many people get into there,” beams Clark. As for Clark? “School of hard knocks!” he yelps in his too-cool, effervescently joyful timbre that stands in contrast to his tough-guy, tattooed exterior. The technical training Shaw brings to the table provides the polish that The Throwdowns needed; he seems to draw out the best in everyone, and catapults the band to a whole new level. At their practice session—a non-stop workout that lasts several hours— Shaw emerges as the relentless musical director. He winces when they miss something that to the untrained ear is almost unnoticeable; he halts the train when he feels a change needs be made; he beams the brightest when they hit their mark and hit it hard. In the studio—an almost church-like place where they recorded Don’t Slow Down and have the luxury of practicing thanks to studio owner Pete Lago—they’re working on a track called “Shake Your Bones,” which has never been heard outside the band and their ‘ohana. “You’re like the first person to hear this!” says Hollingsworth, eager and glowing. His regularly appearing, toothy grin reminds me of actor Ed Helms; I’m instantly smitten by his infectious passion. Later that week, The Throwdowns are

playing Center Stage at Queen Kaahumanu Center thanks to Hot Topic’s nationwide showcase, Local Static. It’s Friday night, the mall is hopping and a more than healthy crowd has gathered. The upper level on both sides of the stage is packed with curious spectators, and the band gives loving shout-outs to the folks upstairs. The folding chairs aren’t nearly plentiful enough to accommodate the turnout; for most onlookers it’s standing room only. “World premier! Right here on Maui!” Clark shouts with double fists in the air, as they kick off with “Shake Your Bones.” The crowd is all about it. A group of teenage girls runs up to the stage to rock out for nearly the entire hour-long set, even making up a little hand jive to “Kihei Town,” which is currently racing up local charts. “Thanks for making a ‘Kihei Town’ dance, girls,” says Smith, who has a knack for eye contact and creating audience rapport. Afterwards, Smith and Clark head up to Hot Topic while Hollingsworth and Shaw break down the onstage setup. They sign autographs, hawk a few shirts and, most importantly, sell tickets to the release party. Plaidclad youth with purple hair and chain jewelry throng the store, some with their parents, all wanting to express how “awesome, really awesome,” they think The Throwdowns are.

“We try to do the smart guy thing,” says Smith, back at our sit-down at the Tiki Lounge. The Throwdowns know that kids buy music, and that building a young following is huge. In keeping with this, they’ve made their release party an all-ages event, a feat Smith says required “pull[ing] some strings.” They’re also hip to the technological age—the album is available on iTunes August 29. he Throwdowns are a band that’s endured its share of criticism, playing in a small, under-the-radar rock scene. Yet their goals are lofty: they want to be famous; they want to be the first multiplatinum band from Maui; they want to tour internationally, to fill stadiums. And—though nothing in life, and certainly nothing in showbiz, is guaranteed—they’ve got a shot. But the best thing about The Throwdowns is how easy it is to root for them. Their good nature is no act; once you get used to it, it’s incredibly refreshing. They’ve found the right parts, they’ve honed their style and they’re dedicated to constant evolution. Now, if folks would just get their name right. MTW

Dog eat dog Nathan’s Famous finds a home in Maalaea he Maalaea Shopping Center is a crossroads for Maui, where buses stop to exchange passengers and tourists park on their way to Molokini. I recently dropped in to check out the Aloha Deli, lured by the promise of an appearance by Elmo and Nathan’s hot dogs at their recent “regrand” opening. Aloha Deli is a one-counter operation with the menus overhead on the back wall, but they have all you need for a breakfast or lunch. A robust selection of coffee and espresso and breakfast wraps, eggs, french toast and bagels made me wish the office was a little closer. For lunch they have lots of fresh filled wraps, like the Mediterranean chicken or the club, which the lady in front of me ordered and gave a thumbs-up, or other options like sub sandwiches and smoothies. But I was there to try the dogs, which are 2 for $3 unless you want some of the fancier options like jumbo, Chicago style, chili dog or a combo, which run you from up to $4.99. The


Chicago was tempting with the tomatoes and celery salt, but I stuck with the classics: a plain dog with chips and a soda, and a chili cheese dog. All of the dogs are Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, made famous

Let it snow Colorful clowns, giant balls, falling flakes—in short, one trippy evening he blizzard brainchild of Russia’s Slava Pulonin blows more than a ton of faux snow— it blows minds. It’s all the funny bonetickling tomfoolery you’d expect from a show boasting a troupe of clowns in bright yellow getups, but this delightful reverie is touched with melancholy, a poetic sadness that keeps adult audiences enraptured without scarring da keiki for life. Last on Maui in 2002, I had the pleasure of attending and (if you couldn’t tell already) fell entirely in love with Pulonin’s imaginative venture, still cherishing to this day my little Ziplock bag of square shaped “snowflakes” in my box of show memorabilia. The show’s been running in excess of 15 years, so it’s no spoiler to say it’s stuffed with eye-popping audience interaction. You’ll think it’s hard to top the gargantuan colorful balls they release into the crowd—which balcony and mezzanine patrons get a


good view of but will desperately wish to get their hands on (it puts the beach balls at any summer baseball game or weird stuff floating around at a String Cheese Incident concert to instant shame)—but

Slava’s Snowshow Friday, August 28 & Saturday, August 29, 7:30 pm Castle Theater, MACC, Kahului $12-$57 242-7469 or they do more than manage. As for the show-stopping finale, I can still see that first flake falling—silent, sparkling, alone. It’s a crystalline crescendo right to the breathtaking end, the paper flake snowstorm unfolding ingeniously thanks to an airplane engine secured in the ceiling. Pulonin has been challenging the art realm and the Iron Curtain since the late

’60s. In 1985, he orchestrated the first festival to host foreign mimes in Moscow at the World Gathering of Youth and Students, a follow-up to his groundbreaking 1982 Mime-Parade, which brought out from the woodwork over 800 performing artists in a country where the literal wall of oppression was still years away from being torn down. His body of work is as fascinating as it is long. After quitting engineering school, Pulonin founded the Academy of Fools in 1993, which lead to a plethora of endeavors including the New Carnival of the World Theatre Olympics, which “still awaits realization under new historical conditions.” I’ll admit, though, I’m a little fearful. Not of clowns, but of Pulonin’s belief that “a theater dies after 20 years of life.” OK, so there’s no rumor of the show ending yet, but he did kill his wildly successful theater, Licedei, on its 20th anniversary, in a street procession consisting of thousands. “Mourners” filled the theater, paying their last respects, before taking to the streets and setting alight coffins that

It’s superclown! were floated down the Neva River. If you suffer from clourophobia, this might actually be the best exercise in quelling your anxiety—it’s enough to make even the most Pennywise-petrified want to run away and join the circus. MTW

Social commentary Sci-fi gore-fest surprisingly insightful; Woodstock biopic, surprisingly not District 9


Rated R/112 min. Here’s a late summer surprise—an exciting, strangely moving tale of the evil that men do…to aliens. The story isn’t terribly original but the approach is: a spaceship filled with thousands of large, disgusting extraterrestrials lands in Johannesburg, for reasons having more to do with a broken vehicle than wanting to make contact. Rather than offering a warm welcome, humans immediately imprison, exploit and terrorize the “prawns.” The film, shot in documentary style, captures a particularly eventful day in the life of a government employee (Sharlto Copely) who enthusiastically evicts hundreds of aliens from their poverty stricken homes. The prawns themselves resemble giant, jittery cockroaches, which makes them easy for the audience to initially loathe. It’s the miracle of the movie that, by the end, not only are the crea-

A face only a mother could love. tures strangely sympathetic, you find yourself emotionally engaged by two of them. Much has been made of the film’s historical metaphors—the imagery of downcast aliens, living in slums and being harassed and murdered by oppressive police bears an obvious resemblance to apartheid-era South Africa. Yet the material is more universal than that; the story is a potent reminder of man’s frequent inhumanity. Many scenes depicting the violent lifestyles of the prawns are gag-inducing.

But if you’re not too squeamish, you’ll be surprised just how engaging this socially conscious sci-fi is.

Taking Woodstock


Rated R/121 min. Oscar-winning director Ang Lee has made a movie about Woodstock and a young man whose life it changes, but doesn’t get close enough to either of them. Demetri Martin plays Elliot Tiber,

who works at his parent’s motel in upstate New York until some upcoming “peace and music” festival is shut out of its location and Tiber convinces them to stage the event in his sleepy town. The first 20 minutes are lifeless, sitcom-level comedy with no laughs or energy and Martin gives a blank, amateur-night performance. The film’s second hour at least sustains interest, because it portrays the large scope of the festival and the people who made the pilgrimage to attend it. Give Lee credit for taking on a big topic, one that means many things to different Americans. But the rich subject matter is the film’s undoing; where it needs to dive in, it’s stuck on the surface. The four-hour 1970 documentary Woodstock is a far better option for those looking to learn about or re-live the event. Lee’s movie is all setup, no payoff; he’s too polite a filmmaker for this topic. Bummer, man. MTW

Ultimately, he finds who he believes to be the reincarnated Konchong, and presents him to His Holiness. So, he’s got that going for him. 102 min.

New This Week THE COVE - PG13 - Documentary - “Ecoactivist documentaries don't get much more compelling than "The Cove," raves Variety.

Fast forward to the anniversary of the killings, and haunted Laurie is again visited by her big bro. 101 min.

Now in his sixth year at Hogwart’s, Potter begins learning some dark secrets about one of his close mentors. 133 min. (KB) INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS - R- Drama - True to his cinema lust style, director Quentin Tarantino brings us a WWII flick that’s all multigenre infused fantasy—but supposedly even enjoyable for the die-hard historian, despite creative-license inaccuracies. Brad Pitt plays Lt. Aldo Raine, leader of “The Basterds,” a guerilla group who revengefully scalp Nazi’s in efforts to strike fear into the hearts of the Third Reich. 149 min. JULIE & JULIA - PG13 - Comedy - Writer/director Nora Ephron intertwines the lives of famed TV chef Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and an at-wits-end New York professional Julie Powell (Amy Adams), in a two-scoop adaptation of their respective bestselling memoirs.

A little goldfish who longs to be a little girl, sneaks away from her father (a pollution-battling wizard of the deep). When she finds the shore, she’s instantly smitten with a boy named Sosuke, and turns herself into the girl she’s always wanted to be—using a drop of the boy’s blood and some internal goldfish magic.

When rejection letters keep piling—her independence and loft apartment dreams seemingly nowhere in sight—she feels befuddled and hopeless. Enter platonic best friend, Adam (Zach Gilford), who I’m guessing doesn’t stay just a buddy for long. 89 min. SHORTS - PG - Family - A rainbow colored rock hurdles from the heavens, hitting 11 year-old Toe Thompson (Jimmy Bennett) in the noggin and subsequently rocks his world. The Black Falls suburb he lives is obsessed with do-it-all device called the BLACK BOX, but Thompson’s magical rock does just as much, plus grants wishes. As would happen when a little boy has at his disposal a wish-granting implement, the town is overrun with gargantuan boogers and alligator armies— which isn’t quite so bad as when the adults catch wind and covet the rock for their own. 89 min. THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE - PG13 - Romance - Seemingly devised especially for geeky girls like me, the plot circles around a debonair Chicago librarian (Eric Bana), who is cursed/blessed with a gene causing spontaneous, involuntary time travel. Trouble aside, he remains hopelessly dedicated to and in love with his timeline-bound wife (Michelle Nolden), throughout all their longing battles through time and space. 108 min. THE UGLY TRUTH - R - Comedy - Basically, an uptight talk show producer (Katherine Heigl) is routinely put off by the antics of one of the showís strapping correspondents (Gerard Butler).

THIS WEEK’S PICKS Fixxtures Thursday (Aug. 27), 7pm, Maui Theatre, Lahaina

More (metal) is all you need Friday (Aug. 28) 7pm – close, Eha’s Pool Bar, Wailuku Saturday (Aug. 29) 7pm – 12am, Kihei Charter School Auditorium, Kihei

Original members Cy Curnin (vocals), Jamie West-Oram (guitar), Rupert Greenall (keyboard) and Adam Woods (drums) have been rockin’ since 1981. Add to the mix bassist Dan K. Brown, and you’ve got England’s The Fixx—heralded as innovators of the early MTV age who’ve sold millions of records worldwide. Playing at the gorgeous Maui Theatre in Lahaina, local rockers The Vince Esquire Band will open this allages show. Rolling Stone’s Mark Coleman calls The Fixx’s lyrics, “a bit, uh, conceptual.” Perusing YouTube, I found the video for their hit “One Thing Leads to Another” to be rather, uh, conceptual too, with slightly frightening light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel imagery and kissing Dobermans. If you need some flair to wear to the gig, Requests can hook you up—they have a nice little selection of buttons featuring band logos and album art. Tickets to the show are $33.50$43.50, so in order to go, you won’t have to sell your “precious stones.” For tickets call 1-800-7453000.


Lately, all I’ve been hearing is that Maui has no rock scene. This weekend’s lineup aims to kick that idea to the curb with an army’s worth of Dr. Martins. Starting with tonight, I’ll slip in a reminder for The A.K.A.s and Maui’s Order of the White Rose at the Iao Theater. For the 21 and over crowd who like to rock it Central, head to Eha’s Pool Bar on Friday night for their “Eha’s Oahu Showcase,” featuring Phoenix Rose (whose bassist has the coolest name, Jack Jackman), Above Reproach, Stillborn Skies, Affront the Weak, and Before Fire. On the South Side on Saturday, thanks largely to Maui Wave Studio’s Pete Lago, you can get “Live and Loud,” at an all ages show at the Kihei Charter School Auditorium. Also sponsored by Ace’s Radio Rehab, 97.3 KRock is also doing a live simulcast of the show. Admission is free, and in addition to the aforementioned bands hitting Eha’s, you can get wild to Gulch of Rot, Before Fire, and Everybody Hates Us.

Bountiful harvest Saturday (Aug. 29) 4 – 7pm, Bounty Music, Kahului Some of my fondest teen memories are of lugging my guitar up those creaky wooden steps to Bounty Music’s upstairs classrooms, to visit teacher extraordinaire, Tom Conway. Despite his efforts, if I learned anything at all, I learned it’s probably best for me leave music to those adept at it— folks like Keli’i Kaneali’i, original lead vocalist of HAPA, who’ll join Bounty Music in celebrating their 30th anniversary. Owners Paul and Avi Weinstein have been helping Mauians get musical for three decades strong and they want to thank their loyal patrons. Bounty is a cool place to visit, party or no, but refreshments and door prizes sure are music to my ears. Photo courtesy of Sean Hower


Are you ready for some football?

Saturday (Aug. 29) 10am – 1pm, Lahainaluna Stadium, Lahaina ESPN’s Neil Everett will be the guest announcer at Lahainaluna’s game versus visiting Kaua’i High (12pm), following the festivities of “Tailgate ’09.” Presented by the Lahainaluna High School Foundation, this fundraiser seeks to help the school build a new stadium, but admission to the tailgating event is free with the purchase of an MIL ticket. The “fun, food and football” kicks off at 10am at Boarder’s Field with food by Cool Cat Cafe and beverages by Maui Soda & Ice. Have some fun and test your football skills with the chance to win prizes. There’ll be a bouncer for da keiki too! Photo courtesy of Lahainaluna High School Foundation

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Change is always alarming, and I’m sure it’d be a little freaky to wake up and find your house being lifted off its foundations and loaded onto a truck by construction workers and machines. However, before you freak out or try to put a stop to the whole project, consider the alternatives. With a bit of effort, it will be possible to transplant your life (or at least this piece of it) with a minimum (if still considerable) fuss. Pitching a fit, on the other hand, would do you more harm than good, since those careful workers would likely pass off the job to a passing tornado—who would not drop off your house and life in such good shape.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) The only thing worse than a sore loser is a sore winner. People will think you’re lame but probably have a shred of sympathy if you pout after failing or missing out on something, but gloating, sulking, or making trouble after a triumph will earn you nothing but contempt. Graciousness is the way to go, no matter how the chips fall. This week, make sure you demonstrate poise, generosity, and compassion whether you win or lose. Wait, screw that. You should exemplify those qualities every week. You never know who might be watching.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You do what you’ve got to do, every time—not rising to a challenge simply isn’t in your nature. Fortunately or unfortunately, this tendency has caused you to go to some strange places and do some extreme things. While this has in general made you a fascinating and complex person, it’s also given you a chapter or three in your past which you’re not especially proud of. Moving forward, can you perhaps evolve in this respect? Being able and willing to meet any test head-on is a fantastic quality, especially when it expands your limits and capabilities. But when it compels you sink to new depths, might it not be better to just let things go?

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) The intentions behind your actions are frequently invisible, and to someone determined to see the worst, it’s easy to interpret certain things you do in especially unflattering ways. We know you’re innocent and well-meaning. However, that’s not obvious to those who don’t know you. Don’t flip out when they completely misinterpret your actions (which would, incidentally, confirm their worst suspicions about you). Put yourself in their shoes, even if they’re narrow and pinchy. Coming from that place, a thoughtful and surprising response to their false assumptions will probably nip them in the bud.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Imagine you discovered that a syringe full of your blood could cure any disease. What would you do? Would you tell the world, and try to share this gift with as many people as you could, regardless of the consequences to your own personal life? Would you keep it secret and only give it to those you loved, perhaps in secret? While my example is rather extreme and stinks of sci-fi, it does have bearing on your current situation—the sharing of something that’s yours could have s significant impact on your life, perhaps forever. That’s not to say you should (or shouldn’t) do it; only that you ought to think carefully about when, how, and if you do.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) And to the victors go the spoils. Guess what else? The winners get to tell the story their way, and most people will believe it. That means that those who are willing to use dirty tricks to triumph may never get called out on it, except by the losers, and most people will think it’s just sour grapes at that point. When faced with this kind of opponent, you basically have two options: sink to his level and pull out all the moral stops, or beat him anyway without employing any questionable strategies. Obviously, the latter is the better choice, if it’s viable. It’s up to you this week to determine whether or not it is.

NEED A JOB? You’re in Luck. Maui Time Weekly is Looking for a Part-Time Freelance Graphic Designer!

We need a designer with experience in a publishing firm, agency or related field that wishes to work in an exciting, fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. You MUST have good design skills and an excellent working knowledge of Indesign, QuarkXpress, Photoshop and Illustrator. This is a PART-TIME job. We are very deadline driven with tight turnaround times. You MUST be able to work quickly, calmly and under pressure. This position has room to grow, so come with some enthusiasm and strong work ethic and the sky is the limit. Reliable transportation is necessary. If you believe that you possess these qualifications, and enjoy stickin’ it to The MAN, detest corporate work environments, wish to work for Maui’s ONLY locally owned & independent newspaper and are able to start immediately, please email your resumé and 3 design samples to:

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Ret-conning (short for “retroactive continuity”) is changing up previously established facts in any kind of serial fiction (like a comic book or television show), usually in order to make the current storyline work. Unfortunately, people try to pull this stunt in the soap opera of real life sometimes, attempting to verbally rewrite history to suit their current agenda. Because of the general fallibility of memory, they sometimes get away with it. This could lead to trouble for you down the line, so if something potentially fishy is happening, make sure you have some documentation of the facts, in case there are any questions later.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Let’s face it, you have a problem with authority—even when you’re the one in control! Unfortunately, your tendency to chafe when forced to give or take orders of any kind is written all over you, and makes you somewhat ill-suited for any hierarchical situation—such as what you find in most workplaces. This is something you need to learn to be able to get over, hide, or work around. Which of those you choose isn’t important; what’s vital is facing the fact that simply wanting something to be cooperative won’t make it so. Keep up your efforts to help people work together, but in the meantime, make sure you get to keep working.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) The person before you is like a stunning example of fall foliage—they’re at their peak right before all their leaves fall off. That’s not to say they won’t have more promising springtimes, flourishing summers, and explosive autumns, but if you get sucked in by all the beauty, and nothing else, you may be left feeling a little let down for the next few months. Luckily, there is more there than an exciting flash of color— however, be sure you’re prepared to notice and appreciate it before you get too close. Otherwise, you’re better off just enjoying this display from afar, aren’t you?

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Just because you say you’re open-minded about something doesn’t mean you actually are. Simply wanting to be flexible doesn’t make it so. Sometimes you just have to accept that certain things about the way you are and what you want to get up to are more or less set in stone, and pretending otherwise (especially to yourself) isn’t going to get you very far. It’s actually much more likely to lead to disappointment and frustration for you and those you involve in these mind games. Self-knowledge is one of the best and most versatile sources of insight and power. This week, focus on taking off any distorting lenses and expanding yours.

Heeding your emotional instincts is all well and good most of the time, but sometimes it just makes your life more complicated, ironically. There are a few things that separate humans from most of the rest of the animal kingdom: logic, music, and humor are the first that spring to mind. Employing these to deal with complex feelings is sometimes a good idea—and especially so this week. I don’t expect you to burst into song the next time you have a fight with someone (though imagine how wonderfully weird and tension-diffusing that might be), but allowing these higher impulses to moderate your lower ones this week (and in the weeks to come) will serve you well.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) If there was a competitive rut-sitting contest, surely you’d win. You’ve dug in your heels and you’re clearly determined to hang in this particular rut you’ve found until the cows come home and pigs are flying around overhead. I’ve accepted that you’re not going to budge until you’re ready to. So here’s my suggestion: peek outside of the rut and see where you might head next if and when you decide to move on. Is there anything you can do here and now—without leaving your beloved rut—to prepare for the next chapter? I’m willing to bet there’s a lot. If you’re not going to leave the rut you’ve dug, what’s stopping you from making it a prettier, happier, and more productive place to be?
