LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR CONTROVERSY OVER JUDAISM? I have just finished reading your cover article “The Maui Hebrews” (Sept. 23, 2004). It was truly beautiful. You can imagine my surprise when I read about Rabbi Schusterman and his wife Danit. They happen to be very well known and loved by people here all over in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Your island is truly blessed to have these two young pioneers weaving themselves into your community and culture. Rabbi Schusterman is well known in orthodox circles for his amazing work that he has done with teenagers and troubled youth in the City of New York. He is also very hip and loves all kinds of music, and in fact, is his father-in-law’s biggest fan. Danit Schusterman’s father, a devout Chassidic Jew, is a well-known rock and roll musician in the Manhattan music scene! Next time you see them, send them love from all their friends and followers in Brooklyn and New York. Congratulations on a great article. New York now reads the Maui Time!! -Mike Friedman, via email

I am a Jewish man in Wailuku. I have a salon and day spa in Kihei. Also I am a member of the Jewish Congregation of Maui: Beit Shalom Synagogue in Kihei. There are more Jews on this island than what is implied in your article. Our Rabbi is Orthodox, our congregation services [include] Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Jewish families. As for title “Among the Hebrews of Maui,” it is not proper to use “Hebrews” to describe the Jewish people in Maui. Hebrew is the language we pray in and the official language of Israel. The ancient biblical Hebrews were in Judea. We are Jews, we are Jewish and we practice Judaism. The Hebrews or Hebrew people is a euphanism used by those who know nothing about the modern day Jews or
Judiasm. Calling a Jew a Hebrew can be very offensive to some people. I really like Maui Time. I take one every week at the Coffee Store at the mall. I have always enjoyed the articles in your free paper. I have never written a response before to the editor, but as a Jew on Maui, I just had to say something. My Jewish parents live here and I have always felt a part of the Jewish community on Maui. This article was misleading and I would not like to have my non-Jewish friends read this misinformation about the thriving Jewish community on Maui. -Marc Tolliver, via email Barukh Shalev responds: Mr. Tolliver is splitting hairs on semantics. The use of the word “Hebrew”—which I’ve never heard of as being offensive—was metaphoric. As for the story ignoring the larger Jewish community on Maui, my purpose was simply to profile an unusual and interesting section of it.
DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS Barukh Shalev’s byline was inadvertently left off the Sept. 30, 2004 cover story “Naked and Naïve.”

Thanks a lot for stealing my bike from 505 Front St. while I attended a wedding inside. I rode my bike there to be safe—it’s not good to be driving after attending a wedding reception. My husband bought me that beautiful white bike last year when we moved to town. It was all white, with a leather seat and handle grips, pink rims and flames on the frame. Oh, and the best part was the dice that covered the air valves on the tires. My husband said the bike reminded him of me. No more of that, since you nonchalantly walked down the street and cut the lock, severing it from my husband’s bike. Then you rode away—amazingly enough leaving his bike still there. It definitely made the wedding more memorable, I’ll give you that.

Just the Facts
Redacted, Part II
My brief stint protecting resorts For a couple weeks this summer I worked as a security guard. I rode around in a golf cart. Just cruised the premises, zipping along mightily in my sturdy craft. I patrolled the beach path. That was my beat. I was responsible and had to be in control. When I reached a hotel I always had to call them and let them know that “the grounds are clear.” I worked all night long, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. My job involved escorting intoxicated, wealthy riff-raff back to their hotels, where they could do no harm. “Come on,” I’d say. “Let’s go. I’ll take you for a cruise in my cart.” Sometimes the kids would come out and want to have fun. Once Jewish kids from Beverly Hills offered me a joint. I smoked it with them and shot the shit. They were bored and lonely. Mummy and Daddy were drinking Mai Tai’s in the hotel lounge and doing cocaine in the No one said being responsible and in control was easy bathrooms. I learned that who I meet throughout the night. I listened to mummy was cheating on daddy. The the waves.

myself almost nose-tonose with the toad. It didn’t move, but just stared indifferently at me. Do they give you warts? I couldn’t recall. Once I picked up a toad and walked over to a swimming pool. I couldn’t remember what toads look like when they swim, so I put him in the water. The pool was completely empty, the waters still. The lights of the pool distorted the toads’ image, making it look bizarrely huge. Gracefully, purposefully, the toad made his way around the pool. I lit a cigarette and watched. It looked majestic and epic, almost heartbreaking. The scene needed music, perhaps some Bossa Nova instrumental. Slowly, but surely, it swam around, had a close call with a waterfall and then safely made his way back out. MTW
Three of the four hearings on the Oct. 6 Liquor Control Adjudication Board agenda dealt with establishments who got caught in minor decoy stings. As is usually the case, all pleaded no contest or guilty. And as is now becoming the standard operating procedure, the identities of the minor decoys used in the stings were shielded from the public. For at least the last year, the LC had no problem referring to the 18, 19 and 20-year-olds they use in sting operations during Adjudication Board hearings and in official reports. When asked about the change in policy, LC deputy director Wayne Pagan said that the LC had protected the identities of its minor decoys in the past, but had stopped for reasons he couldn’t explain. “It was just an oversight on our part,” he said, though he couldn’t say why the LC had suddenly decided to start concealing the decoy names again. Yet when asked why they should hide the identities at all, Pagan made it sound like his department’s decoys were facing the same risks as spies and informers used by the military and law enforcement. “We don’t want any harm coming to the minor,” he said. “We don’t want any retribution to come to them. It’s just to make sure the minors are not compromised.” As to the legal justification for such secrecy, Pagan referred to Section 92F-13(3) of the Hawaii Revised Statutes. That statute exempts from public disclosure “government records that, by their nature, must be confidential in order for the government to avoid the frustration of a legitimate government function.” It’s hard to imagine that the general public’s knowing who the LC is using to walk into bars and restaurants would “frustrate” the department— especially since it’s carried out dozens of successful stings in the past year under the old policy. In any case, Pagan admitted that the secrecy breaks down if a licensee caught in a sting pleads not guilty. During the resulting trial, the decoy would almost certainly have to testify in open court. “Then everything’s open,” Pagan said. MTW

LOCALNEWS WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 29 A friend of mine got quite a scare today. You see, he just bought some property on the Big Island, over in the little but veryaptly named town of Volcano. He’s been a little nervous these past few weeks because Mauna Loa’s been threatening to erupt, which would, among other tragedies, spew prodigious quantities of molten lava all over his land. So he doesn’t react the same way as you or I to stories like today’s Associated Press piece about how feral sheep are overrunning Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. I don’t recall the exact words, but he said something like, “Damn it! I’m calling that son of a bitch realtor right now and…” Like I said, it was hard to tell what he was saying because he was doing that funny thing where someone’s so angry they grab their hair and foam a little around the mouth and then fall to the floor and spin around kicking and biting things like door jams and ankles. After he calmed down, I had him actually read the story and then he mostly relaxed. That’s because the sheep have only overrun the old 116,000acre Kahuku Ranch, which just became part of the national park. His land is free of wild, ravenous feral sheep… For now.

Let the CIA meddle and interfere and tinker with internal Iraqi politics all they want! Hell, they’ve had the last five decades to practice in Greece, Italy, Guatemala, Iran, South Vietnam, Laos, Ecuador, Congo, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, the Philippines, El Salvador, Brazil, Uruguay, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Cambodia, Angola, Honduras, Indonesia, Chile and probably a few more places that have simply never been made public. Hell, official CIA records documenting their screwing around with the 1964 Chilean election were only declassified and released to the open-government advocacy group National Security Archive a couple days ago!

Speaking of the National Security Archive, they just posted on their website (www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv) the transcript to a Jan. 16, 1976 phone conversation between then-Secretary of State—and alleged war criminal—Henry Kissinger and then-“Chairman of the Board” Frank Sinatra. It was a routine call, really, with the buddies chatting about an upcoming party, Kissinger’s wife and the secret CIA war in Angola. At one point, Dr. K asks Old Blue Eyes if he could borrow some of his “enforcers.” “I will bring the formula for Angola,” il Padrone tells him. “I just need a few of your people,” Kissinger responds. “We have the Jews in one part of the world.

need some Italians.”… Was minding my own business, thumbing through the Sept. 2004 issue of Hawaii Business magazine when I noticed a blurb on the proposed Makena Resort development in their Construction Tidbits column. My heart momentarily stopped when I read the phrase “In April, the Maui County Council approved by a 7-2 vote the rezoning necessary to move forward…” This is, of course, an error—it was the Maui County Planning and Land Use Committee that approved Japanese railway giant Seibu’s sprawling plan for a thousand new homes, condos and apartments to cover the wild Makena area. Granted, that committee shares the same membership as the County Council, but still, it’s not the same thing. And in a letter printed in today’s Maui News, Council Chairman Dain Kane bristles at the suggestion that he and his colleagues held off voting on Makena until after the election, writing instead that “the applicant” is

Twenty-five hundred Soldiers of the Hawaii Army National Guard’s 29th Infantry Brigade began shipping out to Iraq today. They’re bound for Balad, which is located north of Baghdad in the violent and unstable Sunni Triangle. About 100 of the soldiers hail from the Valley Isle. But don’t worry— deployments such as these will stop the moment Iraq becomes peaceful.
MONDAY, OCT. 4 Today was the last day to register to vote in the great state of Hawaii. And as usual, a few dozen fools waited until the last minute to head down to the County Clerk’s office to file.

To publicize the use of fat as an alternative method of harvesting stem cells to grow new human tissue, Austin, Texas plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Ersek, who is overweight, called in reporters in August to watch as he liposuctioned one and a half pounds of his own fat from the left side of his abdomen. As Ersek—under local anesthetic—moved the vacuuming wand inside his body, he urged people to save their fat for the time, perhaps five years from now, in which stem-cell work will be routine. Ersek added that he would leave the right side of his abdomen as is, to show liposuction candidates a “before” and “after.”
Jacob Hadad and his “witness,” David Mullem, were charged with perjury in Long Beach, California in July after they refused to budge from their testimony in Hadad’s challenge to a camera-generated traffic ticket. Hadad said he was forced to run a red light because a maniacal driver was chasing him, and Mullem, his “passenger,” backed him up. The camera revealed no car chasing Hadad and no passenger in his car.
HOLO HOLO!? Judging by sales figures for two recent products, Japanese men and women have either too much free time or not nearly enough. That’s because ants and shrimp are now selling briskly in pet shops. The Antquarium is a six-ant farm that uses a self-sustaining nutritional gel instead of sand, and the Holo Holo is basically a plastic box containing five deep-water scarlet shrimp packaged in nutritional algaewater. Each sells for the equivalent of about $30. One satisfied customer told the Japan Times, “As I live on my own, I wanted to have pets that are easy to take care of.”
LEAST COMPETENT ANIMALS With cameras from the Cops TV show rolling, in August an Evansville, Indiana police dog chasing a gunman in a retirement home suddenly leaped on innocent bystander John Terry and bit his right arm before he was pulled off. That same month a 10-year-old Komodo dragon in heat accidentally plunged to her death off a wall in the London Zoo trying to get to her mate.

In April, the St. Augustine Record in Florida announced the opening of artist Andrea Giovanni’s exhibit on behalf of The Betty Griffin House, a local shelter for battered women. Eight days later, the same newspaper carried news of Giovanni’s arrest for allegedly beating up her boyfriend and trying to run him over with her car. And in a feature in the July 2004 Smithsonian magazine on the work of ecology-minded architect Paolo Soleri, who advocates that people form small, efficient, high-density residential communities to help conserve the environment, it was revealed that Soleri lives on a sprawling five-acre ranch near Scottsdale, Arizona housing a bell foundry and several buildings.
BRIGHT IDEAS Searching for ways to convey law enforcement professionalism to the Iraqi police, Marine MP Company C in Camp Al Asad, Iraq developed a costumed mascot, “Farid, the Crime-Fighting Falcon.” The character is patterned after the famous “take a bite out of crime” dog, McGruff, but uses an animal they believe the Iraqis better respect. Cpl. Justin Weber has the easy job, putting on the falcon suit, but his comrades have the more difficult task of explaining to their classes just how Farid fits into effective law enforcement. MTW

A Very Different World Is possible if you get out and vote the final note to be played. Another concert is planned the eve before the election featuring four more bands to remind and motivate people to get them and their friends to meet at the polls. “I don’t hold ‘them’ responsible for the fact that the country is not going the way that I think it ought to go,” says Steve Earle, referring to the people in power. “I hold us—the people who think like I do—responsible.

There’s less than a month to go before Election Day. Unlike the Super Bowl, World Series or even Christmas, few people will paint their bodies and brave the cold weather for a chance to watch and participate. Even if this is one of the most important presidential elections facing the U.S. since the Civil War. In an effort to keep people engaged,
“IF EVERY DEADHEAD IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA HAD VOTED IN THE LAST ELECTION, IT’D BE A VERY DIFFERENT WORLD RIGHT NOW.” American musicians and filmmakers are rolling out politically-themed concerts and movies. In most electoral seasons, the big concerts focus on getting people to sign their name to participate. But this season some of the biggest shows want more than just signatures—they want real social engagement and yearlong political participation. On Maui, we’ve had four band concerts pushing voter registration. The Rock the Vote to Raise Consciousness concert is not
went to sleep. Democracy, it’s hard work. It requires vigilance.” The concert scheduled for Nov. 1 at Maui Community College will remind students and citizens that few things in life are as important as voting. Around America, there will be an amazing string of concerts swirling through the swing states from Ohio to Florida under Vote for Change. The philosophy rooted in this rock and political opera is simple: The only institution more powerful than the U.S. gov-
ernment is American voters. “This is what people fought and died for, the right to go out and say, ‘I don’t like what you are doing to my country,” said one R.E.M. member. “I want my country back.” The Swing State Tour features artists trying to remove the current administration. The leader is the Boss, Bruce Springsteen. The tour includes the Black Eyed Peas and the Dave Matthews Band. Amazingly, the Dead have even come alive. “If you ever want to vote again, do it now,” says Bob Weir. “If every Deadhead in the state of Florida had voted in the last election, it’d be a very different world right now.” Rap music is also getting people in the political cheer. Beyond P. Diddy’s Citizen Change campaign, there is the motto “Vote or Die.” Russel Simmons says his freedom buses will have Eminem in the driving seat of democracy picking up youth to vote. MCC won’t have such bus drivers, but students have decided to continue the tradition of Halloween activism with the Trick or Treat Vote or Die Democracy March on Oct. 27. The heart of elections is exchanging information. That can be done quite well through
documentaries. In the spirit of Michael Moore, many filmmakers have completed films that will make people cringe at the status of the country. There are films that give depth to the American political landscape like Fahrenheit 9/11 and Outfoxed but also lesser known pictures like Journeys with George, The Diaries of a Political Tourist and even a local version of Politics in Paradise. Of course, it’s no fun to watch alone. MCC will be showing all of these films every week Monday through Wednesday before Election Day. After the first presidential debate, there is no doubt that each upcoming meeting will be exciting. Meet with friends to have debate parties or watch the debates in the MCC campus hale. Don’t let democracy die. Demand honesty, humility, hope, human rights, access, accountability, awareness and activism in your political season. Celebrate for the next month but don’t forget our fundamental freedoms after the sacred act of voting. It is only the beginning of the holy season of advocacy. Keep the lights around your heart lit up every night for a better world. Democracy is every day. Be informed. Be involved. Make a difference on a daily basis. MTW

Triumph of the Stultocracy Voters should pass a political literacy test “[John] Kerry doesn’t know what the working-class people do; he hasn’t done any physical labor all his life,” Sharon Alfman, a 51-year-old cook in New Lexington, Ohio, told a New York Times reporter. It’s true. Kerry is a rich boy. But then she added: “Bush’s values are middle-class family values.” President George W. Bush earned $727,000 last year. Estimates of his net worth range between $9 and $26 million. That’s not middle-class. Like fellow Skull and Bones member John Kerry, he never will be a man of the people. But it matters that Sharon Altman thinks he is. Unless you too are a voter living in a swing state like Ohio, her vote counts more than yours. Demonstrating that stupefying igno-
gle-handedly created this mess, spurn him for a leader even dumber than they are. America has become a stultocracy: government by morons, for morons. A 2002 poll found that 64 percent of Americans—people whose votes help determine how much you pay in taxes—could not name a single Supreme Court justice. In 2003, 58 percent—people whose votes could elect someone who starts a nuclear war—couldn’t identify a single department of the president’s cabinet. Voters aged 18 to 24, whose recent schooling ought to inspire confidence in their knowledge of basic facts, are especially ignorant. National Geographic says 85 percent of young American adults can’t find Afghanistan, Iraq or Israel on a map. The fact that these yahoos are allowed to vote
VOTING SHOULD BE A PRIVILEGE EARNED BY AN INTELLECTUALLY ENGAGED CITIZEN, NOT A RIGHT GIVEN TO ANY ADULT WITH A PULSE. rance can be bipartisan, another Ohioan interviewed for the same article said she is against the war in Iraq because, like 42 percent of her fellow Americans, she thinks Iraq was behind 9/11: “We shouldn’t be over there building them back up because they didn’t build our towers back up.” She is wrong on so many levels that it makes my brain hurt. Both women are entitled to their unawareness. We can’t pass a law to force them to read the paper. But neither of these people ought to force their fellow citizens to suffer the consequences of their being so uninformed. Voting should be a privilege earned by an intellectually engaged citizen, not a right given to any adult with a pulse. All men are created equal, declared the Founders. But as Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in Democracy in America, universal suffrage counts upon the existence of a responsible, well-educated citizenry in order to result in political equality. If you give the vote to morons, you get the “tyranny of the masses”—a lumpen proletariat prone to manipulation by demagogues and fools—such as that which created chaos and bloodshed in post-revolutionary France. We’re all equal at birth, but what we do later determines whether or not our opinions are worthwhile. At this writing, the world’s greatest nation flails under the rule of buffoons and madmen, bogged down in two optional wars we’re actually losing. The world’s richest economy is shedding jobs, running up debts and building nothing for the future. Voters, offered an election year alternative to the subliterate idiot who sin-

Their ill-considered ballots cancel or dilute those cast by those who do the heavy lifting that makes them good citizens: Keeping abreast of current events, researching issues, studying candidates’ positions. In the Old South, literacy tests were used to disenfranchise blacks. Alternatively, a basic political literacy test should be used to ensure that anyone who picks ESPN over CNN stays home on Election Day. Prospective voters should be required to answer at least three questions correctly. To give people a fair shot, the test should be published in newspapers a week before an election. It should include questions like “Who is the vice president?” and “Name one federal cabinet-level department.” Of course, such a political literacy test would drastically reduce voter turnout. On the other hand, those who pass could take comfort in knowing that they’re not competing against the 60 percent of Americans who think we’ve found Iraq’s imaginary WMDs, or the 22 percent who “believe” that Saddam Hussein used such weapons against U.S. troops during the 2003 invasion.

MAUI TIME WEEKLY
OCTOBER 7, 2004
Dial ‘M’ for Money Because The Carlyle Group wants to buy the phone company nyone who saw the recent anti-Dubya flick “Fahrenheit 9/11” is very familiar with the name Carlyle Group. Filmmaker Michael Moore seized every opportunity to portray the incredibly wealthy investment firm as a bridge between the Saudi regime—which may or may not support terrorists like Osama bin Laden—and President George W. Bush. Moore wasn’t subtle about it either, noting that as terrorists acting in the name of bin Laden slammed hijacked airliners into the Pentagon and World Trade Center, Carlyle Group officials—led by former Secretary of State James A. Baker, III and former Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci—were meeting with bin Laden family representatives in Washington’s posh RitzCarlton hotel. Though they later pulled out because of bad publicity, the bin Laden family had $2 million invested with the Group at the time of the attacks. The $18 billion Carlyle Group is what Wall Street calls a “global private equity firm.” Or, to use their own publicity materials, they’re a “vast, interlocking, global network of businesses and investment professionals.” The group buys or invests in hundreds companies located all over the world, holds them for a time, then sells them for what should be solid profit. Consider it an elite mutual fund for the wealthy and powerful. It’s named for the glitzy hotel at the corner of 76th and Madison Ave. in New York City where founders William Conway, Jr. and David Rubenstein first met in 1987 to create the group to take advantage of a tax loophole that allowed Eskimos to sell their financial losses. Now, The Carlyle Group wants to come to Hawaii. In fact, it’s very possible that they’ll be coming to your home. That’s because they want to become your phone company. They want to buy Verizon Hawaii. The whole thing is really rather straightforward. Carlyle will pay Verizon Hawaii $1.65 billion for its 707,000 land lines, long distance services, online servic-

es and the company’s Hawaii directory publishing. Verizon Wireless’s operations in Hawaii aren’t part of the deal, and will continue as before. No one really knows how this will affect local consumers, Carlyle says it will spend “tens of millions of dollars” to expand administration, likely keep Verizon Hawaii’s 1,700 employees in place and has promised no rate changes for the next decade, though it did reserve the right to institute a rate hike to cover “capital costs related to re-establishing the back-office functions in Hawaii.” The Carlyle Group wanted the deal quickly approved. In mid-June, Carlyle and Verizon asked the state Public Utilities Commission to okay the merger “no later than Dec. 15, 2004.” It’s also not surprising that Carlyle wanted the whole matter dealt with quietly—no big controversy, no popular outcry against the merger. That meant no public hearings. “As counsel for The Carlyle Group, we respectfully request that the Commission continue its policy of not holding public hearings in acquisition transaction dockets,” wrote attorney Alan M. Oshima to the PUC on July 13. “As in other transaction approval dockets reviewed by the Commission, we anticipate that all relevant issues and concerns will be addressed during the course of the regulatory review.” As late as Aug. 10, the Associated Press was still reporting that Carlyle had gotten its way and no hearings would be held. But on Aug. 16, PUC Chief Legal Counsel Kris Nakagawa announced that the Commission had decided otherwise and would hold seven hearings on the proposed sale throughout the state “[d]ue to the great public interested generated in the proposed sale.” The Carlyle Group didn’t have an auspicious beginning. In fact, its earliest investments were largely busts. The group was new to global equity investment
and, at first, suffered from being based in Washington. It missed out on big deals. Those it did secure, like the failed Texas-based airline-catering firm Caterair, which provided bags of peanuts instead of hot meals and included a young George W. Bush on its board of directors—ended up costing Carlyle $185 million in the early 1990s. But by the mid-1990s, Carlyle changed. It began realizing that deals like Caterair brought more than profit—they brought a close proximity to current and former government officials that would one day put Carlyle among the world’s richest equity funds. In fact, there are so many former leaders on the Carlyle payroll that the company’s been dubbed “The Ex-President’s Club” (see sidebar “Who’s in Charge?”). Look at its growth over the last decade. In 1993, Carlyle held stake in 10 companies with a total value of $2 billion. Seven years later, they controlled $16 billion throughout 164 companies. Today, Carlyle has more than $18 billion invested in about 275 companies based all around the world. Its lucky investors enjoy a stunning 36 percent annual return. Carlyle owns office complexes in Phoenix, Paris, San Jose, Dusseldorf, Brooklyn, Boston, San Francisco, Milan, Hamburg, Dallas, Chicago, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver and Tampa, among other cities. They’ve invested in a San Francisco firm that programs clothing customization software, a German firm that builds diesel engines, a natural gas compression firm in Houston and a company that provides broadband access to Tokyo. Their portfolio includes a French company that makes clay roof tiles and bricks, an Italian firm that makes steel flanges and a tiny American firm called Matrics that’s staffed with former National Security Agency engineers and manufactures swastika-shaped electronic chips that may one day replace the UPC bar code. Carlyle also owns portions of an Indian equity bro-
kerage house, Chinese department stores, a Taiwan cable company, a Luxembourg auto parts manufacturer and an eye care products firm in Cincinnati. They invested in a company in Legarno, Italy that makes boilers, a Shanghai, China travel agency and a company in Munich, Germany that makes metal-cutting machines. The Carlyle portfolio includes firms that manufacture diodes in Korea, cranes in Japan, corrugated board in France, wireless systems in London and banking software in India. Ever drink Dr. Pepper? Stay in the Chicago Marriott Hotel? Ship anything to or from Hawaii on Horizon Lines? Read “Le Figaro,” one of France’s largest daily papers? All are current or recent Carlyle Group investments. Of course, Carlyle also owns and has owned a vast array of defense contractors, just about all of which have been immensely profitable for the firm. The Carlyle portfolio includes corporations like Marion, Massachusetts-based Sippican, which builds anti-missile systems, Nashville-based Aerostructures Corporation, which constructs aircraft parts, Turin, Italy-based Avio
SpA—which used to be the aerospace division of Fiat— and Dallas-based Vought Aircraft, which has built military airplanes since before World War II. Carlyle’s first move into the defense industry was its 1992 acquisition of Vinnell. According to investigative reporter Dan Briody’s 2003 book “The Iron Triangle: Inside the Secret World of the Carlyle Group,” Vinnell is a private mercenary firm that’s been training the Saudi militia since 1975. Carlyle sold Vinnell in 1997 amidst bad publicity—Vinnell has long been rumored to be a CIA-front much like that parodied in the film “Swordfish”—but it didn’t sour the Group’s taste for military contracts. A few Carlyle companies stand out—both for their unusual profile and because they have uniquely profited from the U.S. War on Terror:
QinetiQ Imagine if the Pentagon decided to privatize the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the government agency that oversees all high-tech, super-secret military research. Sound crazy? The Brits didn’t think so. Until July, 2001, Farnborough-based QinetiQ was the United Kingdom’s Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), which handled all the military research needed to keep the Royal Army outfitted with best gear. Today, the firm specializes in electronics, radar, jet engines, materials science, airspace management, communications, torpedoes, “underwater battlespace” and satellite technology.
U.S. Investigation Services Located in Annandale, Pennsylvania, USIS is also a former government agency, except in this case it’s American. Remember all those new post-9/11 employees hired by the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation, Transportation Security Agency, Immigration and Naturalization Service and Customs Department? USIS did the background checks on all of them. The firm also does background checks for several airlines. Their corporate headquarters is a trip—it’s built down inside an old mine, complete with rock walls and signs warning against having open flames.
The group buys or invests in hundreds companies located all over the world, holds them for a time, then sells them for what should be solid profit. Consider it an elite mutual fund for the wealthy and powerful.
Medpointe “San Francisco Chronicle” reporter David Lazarus ferreted this one out in March of this year. Medpointe, based in Somerset, New Jersey, is one of three companies in the whole country licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to make potassium iodide pills, which are typically given to people exposed to large amounts of radiation to guard against thyroid cancer. Because of the 2002 Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act, all public facilities near nuclear reactors have to stockpile the pills.
IT Group Pittsburgh-based IT Group is a haz-mat firm that got the contract to decontaminate the Trenton Postal Facility and the Hart Senate Office Building after both were hit by anthrax attacks in the weeks after the destruction of the World Trade Center. Though the contracts were lucrative, they didn’t keep IT from slipping into bankruptcy. Carlyle eventually sold the company to the engineering firm Shaw Group.
United Defense Dan Briody has called this company, which Carlyle sold earlier this year, the “crown jewel” of defense holdings. One of the largest defense contractors in the world, United Defense builds a huge array of armored personnel carriers, artillery cannons, naval guns, support vehicles, torpedo tubes and missile launchers. Despite years
of intensive lobbying to save United Defense’s proposed too-heavy, too-Cold War, too-$11 billion Crusader self-propelled gun, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld finally killed the Crusader in 2001, though that same day, he gave United Defense a new contract to build—surprise!—a much-lighter, much-less Cold War self-propelled gun. Like Carlyle, United Defense’s board of directors is stocked with former defense and military officials: Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman John Shalikashvili, former U.S. Navy Atlantic Fleet Commander in Chief Robert J. Natter and former Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman J. H. Binford Peay, III. In its application to the PUC, Carlyle wasn’t modest about explaining why they should take over every land telephone line in the state of Hawaii. “Carlyle has a track record of successful telecommunications investments, a deep knowledge of the local telephony business, and a thorough understanding of the complex regulatory issues affecting the industry,” stated the company’s June 21 application. And the reason for such “thorough understanding” was simple: “The Carlyle partners responsible for this acquisition have exceptional experience in the telecommunications sector,” they wrote. One of those partners mentioned in the application is William E. Kennard, who served as the nation’s first African-American Federal Communications Commission Chairman from November, 1997 to January, 2001. When Dubya came into office, Kennard went to work for Carlyle. Today he’s managing the Carlyle-Verizon merger. Kennard is one of many former American and foreign government officials who’ve gone to work for Carlyle after leaving public life. But it’s Carlyle’s hiring of 41st U.S. President George H. W. Bush that especially appalls government reformers and corporate critics. In fact, his move to Carlyle—he mostly just uses his status as ex-president to lobby Saudi royal family members and officials—is unprecedented among former U.S. presidents. Alone among the world’s corporate executives, Bush still receives regular classified briefings from the Central Intelligence Agency. He also enjoys the privilege of having his own son sit in the Oval Office. Carlyle Group founding partner Rubenstein has told the “Washington Post” that any talk of Bush the Younger possibly skewing official U.S. policy to favor his father’s business interests is “ridiculous,” “ludicrous” and “absurd.” Others aren’t so convinced. In fact, Bush’s presence at Carlyle has raised so many red flags that it’s outraged the conservative Washington, D.C.-based group Judicial Watch—formed to catalog President Bill Clinton’s numerous alleged ethical transgressions. “Questions can be raised, for instance, if the ‘kid gloves’ treatment of Saudi Arabia by the Bush Administration has anything to do with his father’s financial ties to the Saudi regime,” said Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman. “Former President Bush would be doing his son and his country a favor by immediately resigning from The Carlyle Group.” Klayman said that in 2002. Since then, all that’s changed is that Carlyle Group pulled Bush 41’s name from its online list of “Team Members.” The State of Hawaii Public Utilities Commission’s Maui hearing on The Carlyle Group’s proposed takeover of Verizon Hawaii will take place at 6 p.m. on Oct. 12 in the Maui Waena Intermediate School cafeteria, 795 Onehee Ave., Kahului.

Virgil Ramos Bartender, Pacific’O I won’t serve a guy a Cosmopolitan. I’ll give it to him and call it a Cranberry Kamikaze. You may like staying home and watching Sex and the City, but I’m looking out for you, brother. I just can’t serve a man a Cosmopolitan. The Chocolate Martini is the most popular drink here, without a doubt. One goes out, 15 will follow right away. It’s very monkey see, monkey do. The most unusual drink I’ve ever served is probably the Black and Tan. It’s very much one of the weirder ones I get. It’s a very urban drink, and we’re umbrella land. Go back to New York City and tell the guy you want a Lava Flow. He’ll beat you senseless, probably. I have a real thing for a Chopin Martini, straight up, no juice, no olive. I love good tequila, too. Can’t beat it. I’ve worked here for three years. I’ve been a bartender for six. I grew up in Lahaina. Lahaina Intermediate, Lahainaluna, the whole deal. I was a beach boy at the Hyatt for a while. There were guys there who bartended for 10, 20 years. I learned a lot from those guys. I used to wait tables in high school. I cooked, washed dishes, everything. But I like the interaction that comes from bartending. It’s faster than waiting on tables. I’ve got a good crew here, front and back of the house. We work well together. Everyone’s really helpful. That’s hard to come by. The hotel was a union job. That almost encourages laziness. A cocktail server would never bus a table. But here, a server won’t be shy about doing that. That frees up more time for everyone. More hands make light work. Hey, erase what you just wrote about the weirdest drink I ever made. I just made a drink that I call The Omelet. It’s got Absolut Peppar, a raw egg, a splash of tomato juice and it’s served neat in a salted bucket. That is the new weirdest drink I’ve ever made. Sometimes, I feel like I’m at a Gallagher show and I’m the one under the plastic wrap. MTW

Slack-key and falsetto master Uncle Richard Ho’opi’i will also perform, along with the modern and ancient hula of the Kano’eau Dance Academy. But that’s not all! The evening event features a concert with Ho’okena, Kainani Kahaunaele and Wana, with live comedy by Rodney Villanueva, martial arts from Ke’eaumoku Kapu and hula from the halau Na Wai Punalei.

Angels/Red Sox Series Friday, 10:09 a.m., ESPN [SPORTS] Did I call this one or what? Did I not predict months and months ago that the Anaheim Angels were going to be good this season? And are they not now the American League West Division champs? Their starting pitching isn’t as strong as some clubs, but their bullpen is easily the deepest in the majors. With all the bats in the lineup, they’re a formidable contender who could, for the second time in three years, go all the way to the World Series. Now they’re in a tough series against Boston. Game Three is Friday. Should they be necessary, the Angels and Red Sox will play Games Four and Five on Saturday and Sunday. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]
Funny Lady Thursday, 9:30 p.m. at Casanova [COMEDY] Nancy Jill Sundberg used to live in New York, where she was involved in performing arts on and off-Broadway. She has since run away to a tropical island, where she basks in the balmy breezes and creates her comedic material, inspired by her new Maui-fied lifestyle and worldly events. This evening at Casanova, Sundberg will present “Celestial Wings which will include her original writings, music and visuals, along with her collaborators, Patrick and Jadine Brown. Also featuring special guest Paul Bunuan on saxophone. According to sources close to us, Nancy is a “real funny lady” so venture upcountry and check out this sure-to-be stimulating experience.

Friday, 7:30 p.m. at the Castle Theater
[STAGE] Maui Academy of Performing Arts (MAPA) opens its 2004-2005 season with The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), which will run through Oct. 24. According to the press release for the production, The Complete Works has been hailed as “an irreverent fast-paced romp through all 37 of the Bard’s comedies, histories and tragedies.” Tickets $18 for adults, kids 12 and under $12, and may be purchased through MAPA by calling 244-8760.
[MUSIC] I’d love to rant about the greatness of the Doobie Brothers music, but the show’s done sold out. So have fun, those of you who have tickets. As for the rest, we’ll be having our own sing-along at a bar near you.
The Future of Food Tuesday, 7 p.m. at the Paia Community Center [FILM] By now most people in Hawaii know that the agricultural land of this state is quickly being covered over by genetically modified crops. Scientifically enhanced versions of pineapple, coffee, papaya, bananas and taro are all growing here. And there may be nothing wrong with this. Or we may be shoveling multiple genetic time bombs into our stomachs. We simply don’t know because our beloved government doesn’t encourage proper, scientific testing or even labeling of GM foods. Explaining all of this is the documentary The Future of Food, which will screen for free to all who wonder about the fruits and vegetables activists call “Frankenfoods.” [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

Romantic Role Reversal French love comedy is a playful spin
★★★★★ Rated R/103 mins.
Before William can get a word in edgewise, Anna makes another appointment and leaves without giving her phone number or address. The intimate sessions continue even after Anna discovers that William is not the analyst she believed him to be and a unique relationship is forged. The film’s implicitly claustrophobic stage setting is resolved beautifully by Director of Photography Eduardo Serra as he reveals a multitude of emotional layers within the constant parameters that Leconte’s gifted actors effectively work within. Intimate Strangers is a movie that expands on its potential for comic suspense by transferring a voyeuristic setting into a place of heartfelt romance. William inherited his office and unobtrusive occupation from his accountant father and keeps a nosey secretary (Helene Surgere) who acts as a throwback to an overseeing familial authority figure. Even William’s relationship to his still attentive ex-wife Jeanne (Anne Brochet) is an article of his dutifully well attended past. But when Anna blows into William’s
immaculately maintained world as a sensual and verbally expressive force of nature, he becomes so caught up in the excitement of the moment that he doesn’t notice the instantaneous transformation that comes over him. Anna, for her part, is on a blind mission to revolutionize her romantic life in revolt against her cheating unemployed husband. Without realizing it, she has already psychologically prepared for the effect that she will have on the first man she can corner long enough to regard her urgent appeal for love. The analyst/patient relationship is actually reversed in the film’s opening scene when William submits to a confidential alliance with Anna that reveals more about his subjective emotional needs than hers. Patrice Leconte uses Anna’s playful eroticism to fuel both the audience’s voyeuristic curiosity as well as William’s giddy metamorphosis that we see take hold when he goes into the adjacent office of Anna’s intended psychiatrist on a quest for her phone number. There’s a blend of Woody Allen and Alfred Hitchcock in the sequence with William attempting to outsmart the receptionist before resorting to making an appointment with psychiatrist Dr. Monnier (Michel Duchaussoy). When William meets with Anna’s undiscovered shrink, he confesses the dubious situation he has found himself in and seeks guidance to act responsibly toward Anna. It’s one of the funniest scenes in the movie and is telling for the lurking integrity it reveals in William’s character. Greater still is Anna’s outraged reaction when she discovers the truth, before renovating William’s world after she returns to continue their exceptional attraction for one another. What carries Intimate Strangers is the unflappable chemistry between Fabrice Luchini and the beguiling Sandrine Bonnaire. Luchini is a master comedian who uses subtle body language and off-kilter facial expressions to emit humor with virtuosi precision, while
Sandrine Bonnaire, dripping with sensuality Bonnaire drips with a sensuality that plays around the corners of her mouth like a couple of cats chasing the same mouse. The actors are perfectly suited to Jerome Tonnere’s (Un Coeur en Hiver) fiendishly clever script and give Oscar worthy performances in the process. Romantic comedies are rarely as engaging as Intimate Strangers and rarer still are the ones that seem to come directly from the well trod boards of theater onto the cinema screen without a severe loss of visual and thematic lifeblood. Here is a traditionalist postmodern romance that takes into account all surround-
Director Patrice Leconte (The Widow Of St. Pierre) crafts a sinewy comedy of manners in which a shy divorced Parisian tax attorney becomes an involuntary roleplaying psychiatrist to an extroverted and sex-starved married woman. Anna (Sandrine Bonnaire—La Ceremonie) mistakenly steps into the apartment office of William Faber (Fabrice Luchini—La Discrete) and immediately pours her heart out, thinking him to be a psychiatrist with whom she has an appointment on the same floor.
ing cynicism before pushing beyond it with a tantalizing urge for lust and spontaneous combustion made of trust. From his films Monsieur Hire (1990) to Man On The Train (2003) Patrice Leconte has made a career out of movies about people pretending to be something they are not in order to consummate their innate identities. Anna pretends to be submissive when she is quite the reverse and William pretends to know more than he does in order to enjoy the ride as an introverted voyeur in love with the beauty before him. It’s a wild thing to witness. MTW

MOVIECAPSULES MAUI FILM FESTIVAL’S CANDLELIGHT CAFÉ & CINEMA Wednesday, October 13 Intimate Strangers 5 & 7:30 p.m., Castle Theater In this provocative love story, directed by Patrice Leconte (Girl on a Bridge) and starring the sultry Sandrine Bonnaire, comes this exhilaratingly sensual adult fable masked in the guise of a suspense thriller in which a beautiful Parisian woman opens the wrong door and steps into a dizzying psychological mystery that will forever change two lives. In French with English subtitles. Rated R. 104 min.
New This Week FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS – PG 13 – Drama – Think Any Given Sunday, but two days earlier and with high school jocks instead of pros. This sports movie chronicles the highs and lows experienced by the 1988 Permian High Panthers of Odessa, Texas. Critics are supposedly calling it one of the greatest football movies ever, but I don’t see how it will ever top Gus, the 1976 Don Knotts/Tim Conway masterpiece about a Yugoslavian mule that got drafted as a field goal kicker. Stars Billy Bob Thornton as the coach and Derek Luke as some guy. RAISE YOUR VOICE - (PG) - Drama - Isn’t Hilary Duff, like, 40 by now? Well here she is again, playing a teenage girl from a small town, only instead of a goofy romantic comedy, she’s doing a goofy romantic drama about her summer in a Los Angeles performing arts school following the death of her supportive older brother. SHALL WE DANCE? – (PG13) – Drama, Musical - This movie reads like an after-hours flick on cable: “An overworked Chicago accountant (Richard Gere), tired of the boring routine that his life has become, sees a beautiful dance teacher (Jennifer Lopez) through a window and decides to get to know her better, and as the joy of dancing enters his life, he discovers that it might just be the secret to saving his troubled marriage...” (Greg’s Previews, Yahoo Movies!) Sneak Preview. TAXI – (PG13) – Action, Adventure, Comedy, Crime – At last, some Hollywood genius has finally made a movie about that beloved 1970s television situation comedy Taxi. I can’t tell you how long I’ve waited to see Jim and Latka and all the rest on the big screen… what? Oh, I guess this is something different, starring Jimmy Fallon as a cop who ends up partnered with taxi driver Queen Latifah. Yeah, I’d much rather see them than Andy Kaufman, Danny Devito and Christopher Lloyd. Also stars the reasonably attractive Brazilian supermodel Giselle Bundchen.
Now Showing ANACONDAS: THE HUNT FOR THE BLOOD ORCHID (PG13) – Action/Adventure/Suspense/Horror – A big pharmaceutical company sends beautiful people into the jungle looking for the legendary Blood Orchid that supposedly holds the key to eternal life. Good news it exists, bad news it’s being guarded by giant, murderous snakes who don’t want to give it up. Hey, it could happen. Sure, stuff like that happens all the time. You just don’t hear about it. Stupid liberal media. Stars a bunch of people you never heard of. ALIEN VS. PREDATOR - (PG13) – Science Fiction/Action – This landmark 5-4 Supreme Court decision from the final years of the often controversial Warren Court stipulated that in times of crisis involving scary monsters from space that drool acid and kill things really, really fast, humanity is pretty much screwed. How they converted Justice Felix Frankfurter’s dry, legalistic rhetoric that into a movie starring Lance Henriksen is beyond me.
CELLULAR - (PG-13) - Action/Thriller - This woman gets kidnapped and suddenly, her only hope is her cell phone—yeah, good luck—so she calls some random guy—must have been through “directory assistance”— and the guy, not knowing it’s actually Kim Basinger on the other end, agrees to save her family and rescue her. Okay, this movie is just swimming in fantasy! I mean, not only is the cell phone battery not going to hold up for the two hours it takes to save the day but dude is going to be charged some major overage, which will prompt the cell phone company to “temporarily disconnect” until he agrees to sign another two-year contract and in the meantime, poor little Kim Basinger will be switching to AT&T. Can you hear me now? CRIMINAL – (R) – Crime/Drama – Three people scheme over how to sell the incredibly rare and expensive piece of U.S. currency that’s somehow fallen into their possession. Diego Luna plays the young Latino dude, John C. Reilly plays the 30-something white guy and Maggie Gyllenhaal plays the white guy’s sister. It’s, of course, set in Los Angeles, because all the great crime stuff always seems to happen there. FENG SHUI - (Unrated) - ? - Feng Shui is the placement of objects in order to maximize beauty, functionality and common sense. This movie could be about that or maybe it’s another romantic comedy involving overpaid starlets and the mindless men who love them. We don’t know for sure. FIRST DAUGHTER - (PG) - Romantic Comedy Political lies and familial deception? Sounds like the perfect premise for a romantic comedy! This one’s starring Katie Holmes as the President’s daughter, who demands to attend college sans any uptight, cock-blocking secret service agents. Her dad, the President, agrees but then assigns a young stud in plain clothes to follow her around anyway. Hmm... a young stud and a nubile college chick... what do you think happens, kids?! THE FORGOTTEN - (PG13) - Thriller - Julianne Moore stars in this psychological thriller as a single mother who loses her 8-year-old son and seeks emotional therapy from a head doc. But the psychiatrist (Gary Sinise) tells her she’s trippin—she never had a son and she’s making the whole thing up. But then she meets another parent going through the same thing so he two pair off to find out what the dealy is, yo. LADDER 49 – (PG13) – Drama – Joachim Phoenix plays a firefighter trapped in a burning building. The whole movie takes place has he reflects on his life as the rest of his ladder company takes their sweet time rescuing him. Also stars John Travolta as the fire chief. MR. 3000 – (PG13) – Comedy – Bernie Mac plays a retired Hall of Fame ballplayer who has to unretire when he finds out that three of his 3,000 hits have been disqualified. Not wanting to be known as Mr. 2997, he decides to make a comeback seven years after he last stepped to the plate. Also stars Angela Bassett. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE – (PG) – Comedy – A cult classic already because of the screening at the Wailea Film Festival this year, Napoleon Dynamite is about a red afrod-ed, dorky teenager who sells herbal breast enhancers door-to-door while practicing his dance moves and learning the way of the ninja as he helps his new best friend win the election for Student Body President. This is kind of a coming-of-age story but it’s hilarious so go see it, you big fat turd! Gawwwsh! NOW THAT I HAVE YOU – (PG 13) – Romantic Comedy – A guy and girl take the same train everyday from the same station. Then, because this is a movie about two people who see each other every day before finally meeting, they finally meet. She falls for him, thinks he’s Mr. Right, but he turns out to be uptight and dull. Will their love conquer all? But more importantly, will the audience stomach this all the way to the end? Stars Nikki Valdez and Kristopher Peralta PAPARAZZI – (PG 13) – Thriller – A young, hot movie star (Cole Hauser) and his beautiful wife (Robin Tunney) are just minding their own business one day, driving along being beautiful when four evil paparazzi photographers surround them and cause a car crash, which injures said wife, leaving said young, hot movie star to exact revenge on the shutterbugs. This is normally the part where I’d make a joke about how this should have been called The Tony Danza Story, but I’m afraid he’ll use it as an excuse to take revenge on me, so I won’t.
PRINCESS DIARIES 2: ROYAL ENGAGEMENT (G) - Romantic Comedy - Another reality-based concept of a common girl who discovers her inheritance to the throne as a princess and has to suffer the consequences, like learning to ride horses side-saddle. In this sequel, Princess Mia discovers that she not only must take over ruling her new country but she’s got to find herself a man to stand behind her in marriage before she does so. This movie is just crawling with backhanded fantasies posing as feminist ideals, isn’t it? RESIDENT EVIL 2: APOCALYPSE - (R) Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Suspense/Horror – Sequel to the first Resident Evil film, which chronicled the adventures secret government agent Alice (Milla Jovovich) fought a bunch of “bloodthirsty zombies”—as if there were “vegetarian zombies” running loose—at the evil Umbrella Corporation. This movie takes place the next day, when Alice escapes to Raccoon City and finds just about everyone zombified. If that isn’t enough, there’s some monster on the loose named Nemesis who moans a lot. SHARK TALE – PG – Animation – An all-star cast voices the story of a little fish (Will Smith) who tells tall tales and gets famous. There’s a shark that gets killed and some running—er, swimming—around as the shark family seeks retribution. There’s also a love triangle involving the little fish voiced by Will Smith, a hot fish voiced by Angelina Jolie and a sweet fish voiced by Renee Zelleweger. Other voices by Robert De Niro and Jack Black. See SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW – (PG) – Science Fiction/Adventure – For all the stunning digital-effects that make up the movie’s 1939-style future world, the plot is elegantly simple: Hero pilot Sky Captain (Jude Law) and fetching reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow) team up with spooky/sexy aviatrix Franky Cook (Angelina Jolie) to find missing scientists and save the world from giant robots and monsters. But what’s really remarkable about this film is that director/screenwriter Kenny Conran has absolutely no Hollywood experience—for the last decade, he’s spent every day of his life working on the movie on his home computer. WIMBLEDON – (PG13) – Romantic Comedy – An unlucky tennis player (Paul Bettany) winds up on a lucky streak which lands him in the prestigious Wimbledon tournament, where he falls in love with an American tennis star (Kirsten Dunst) and the two lovebirds live happily in white tennis outfits forever more. Or do they? WITHOUT A PADDLE - (PG13) - Comedy - Think Deliverance, but not as funny. Seth Green, Matthew Lillard and Dax Shepard play three guys who take a canoe into the Oregon wilderness looking for treasure but finding dangerous hunters, hippie chicks, wild rapids and some crazy old coot played by Burt Reynolds who starred in, among other movies, Deliverance. ZATOICHI: THE BLIND SWORDSMAN – R – Action/Adventure/Drama – Japanese flick that follows blind nomad/gambler/masseur/master swordsman Zatoichi has he visits a 19th Century village controlled by merciless gangster Ginzo. Much swordfighting follows involving Ginzo’s henchmen, a samurai ronin named Hattori and two beautiful geishas. Awww yeaaaaaah.

Kids need good music too and the coolest parents will pick this one up for the keiki. Caribbean Playground is one of those CDs that the kids will like in the car and won’t drive the parents crazy. Taj Mahal sings about sailing a “Great Big Boat” from the Pacific to the Caribbean. Desmond Dekker, the godfather of ska, is present with “Jamaica Farewell.” There is a fantastic zydeco version of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds” as well as French star, Karl Zero, collaborating with the Wailers on Harry Belafonte’s “Coconut Woman.” Artists from Martinique and Haiti represent the French Caribbean, while Puerto Rico brings the bomba. —Putumayo World Music 2004 [JOE GATTO]
NEKO CASE “BLACKLISTED” There’s little country music I can actually tolerate—Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Jr., Patsy Cline are obvious exceptions. So it’s no small wonder that I am about to plead my case—so to speak—for Neko Case’s comparably deep, dark, and moody altcountry solo effort Blacklisted. “Deep Red Bells” is a spaghettiwestern influenced, slow-burning epic that soars with desolate, lush imagery. In fact, much of the album invokes romantic, sensual, noirish and lonely visuals: Sarah Vaughan’s “Look For Me (I’ll Be Around)” becomes a torchsong wailed in tattered taffeta at an isolated country bar off a desert highway. “I Wish I Was The Moon” is a beautiful ballad sung by a moonlit lake with a lonely accordian-playing hobo by the railroad tracks in the distance. Hey, it could happen. Also, look for Neko Case’s new album, The Tigers Have Spoken, to be released in November. — Bloodshot Records 2002 [SAMANTHA CAMPOS]
VARIOUS ARTISTS “ELECTRIC GYPSYLAND” This is one of the most original albums available anywhere. Some of the world’s most daring and eclectic electronic music producers were asked to remix tracks by leading Balkan Gypsy bands from Romania, Macedonia, and the ex-Yugoslavia. The original recordings are full of violins, accordions, and exuberant brass sections. These remixes combine them with some of the most imaginative electronic sounds, club beats, and styles from other parts of the world while preserving and enhancing the quality of the gypsy sound. DJ Dolores from Brazil creates a truly unique track by mixing the Balkan sound with Brazilian forró on “Dumbala Dumba.” On “lest Sexy” fun vocals are backed by an upbeat tempo and unforgettable chorus. Cop and Thief from Italy come through with a magnificent rendition and the most club appropriate remix on the album. —Six Degrees Records 2004 [JOE GATTO]
BEASTIE BOYS “TO THE 5 BUROUGHS” After a six-year hiatus, the world’s most loved rap trio returns with their energetic dose of party beats and politically pertinent lyrics—thankfully, the Beastie Boys took the time to do what they do best. Sounding simultaneously old-school and electromodern fresh, To the 5 Buroughs should satisfy loyal hip-hop and Beastie fans, as well as curiously heretofore new ones. — Capitol Records 2004 [SAMANTHA CAMPOS]

BY SARAH CALLENDER
‘I Don’t Take Vacations’ Louie Perez talks about 30 years of Los Lobos Los Lobos drummer and songwriter Louie Perez doesn’t live in Los Angeles anymore, doesn’t get enough vacation time and can’t find enough vegetarian restaurants in the suburbs of Orange County. So what’s an aging Latino rocker to do? Maui Time: So why did you leave LA? Doesn’t living in the OC kind of ruin your street cred? Louie Perez: I’ve almost made a habit of living places I’m not supposed to be. Now I’m an expatriate LA guy. I saw all those old movie houses and old buildings deteriorate, and there was the violence. I have three boys and I was worried about them getting into trouble. It was just time for me to go. Orange County in general is a little more relaxed. People in LA have this quiet feeling of desperation. When I was growing up it felt like we were all in this thing together, and today it feels less like that. [But] we are still connected with our community. It still inspires me and it’s a source of a lot of my writing. What about your childhood in East Los Angeles influences the content of your songs?
[They are] innately political, but I just get disgusted with politics. My writing is more [focused on] the human drama. So who are you going to vote for? Please say John Kerry. If you say Ralph Nader I’m going to hang up on you. I don’t know. Frankly I don’t like either one of those guys. I don’t even like to look at that Kerry guy. He looks like a cartoon version of an older Hugh Grant. There’s just nothing there— both of them are just avoiding the issues that are so important. Hmmm. We should probably just talk about your newest album, The Ride, which features tons of guest musicians. We celebrated our 30th anniversary last November and wanted to celebrate without being too warm and fuzzy. So what do you do when you have a birthday? You have a party. So we invited our friends over. Willie G, Café Tacuba, Elvis Costello. We thought, “Let’s get a bunch of people together that really mean something to us.”
Are any of your songs overtly political?
We’ve played in Hawaii before. It’s been a long time. We’re going to Japan and then we play three shows on Maui. I don’t take vacations. I’m always working. We’ve played 175 shows this year and we’re not done yet. Next we’re going to do an acoustic tour across the US and on November 1st our first live DVD comes out—Los Lobos Live at the Fillmore. It’s kind of a shame that I spend so much time on the road. After all that I really want to get on another plane and sleep in another hotel! So I guess since you’re a vegetarian you won’t be eating too much Spam when you’re in Hawaii, huh? No. You know, I have trouble finding good food here [in OC]. There’s just nothing to eat around here. Can you send me a list of places to go? I’ll give you my email address. If I do that, can I come with you guys? [Silence] We can play dominoes and sing songs from the La Bamba soundtrack! [Silence] Louie? Yeah, uh, I actually have to jump on this other call—another interview. Take care now! MTW
Who are the best bands today? As a kid, I saw how people found joy in the little that they had. That’s really inspiring—to do the best with what you have. There were things I saw that broke my heart and things that filled me with pride. I go back to that. I go back to when I was a kid riding my Sting Ray bike and listening to the long version of “Come on Baby Light My Fire.”
So Maui’s the next stop for Los Lobos. Have you been there before?
[Café Tacuba] is really great. I’m glad all Mexican bands don’t want to sound just like The Police anymore. The Flaming Lips I like a lot. And classic punk rock. Punk attracted me because it was so raw and it’s like, “I want to start a band but I don’t know how to play anything.” Actually though, I don’t listen to a whole bunch of music. Music in [my] house is pretty much nonexistent.
Los Lobos Los Lobos plays the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on Sunday, Oct. 10. Doors open at 7 p.m. For tickets, call 242-7469.

Let Poppins advise: “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. Find that fun and snap! The job’s a game!” When it comes to work, your scales are way out of whack. You either work too hard (and are consequently miserable) or play too much (to escape the drudgery of your job). Balance that scale: You need to find something you really and truly enjoy about your job. If you can’t, for goodness sake find something else so you can quit. At the very least, discover and nurture a creative outlet for your passions (besides partying) that will at least make your employment seem worthwhile—as a means to get to paint, travel, kite board or whatever.
Orthodox Christians believe that Jesus ended his earthly life by ascending bodily into Heaven. The Holy Prepuce, or his foreskin, would be one of the only physical remainders left behind. It’s said to possess various miraculous powers, just like your own sacred regions. The Prepuce is missing; no one knows where it is now. Sadly, your genitals’ magical powers are similarly misplaced; sex alone isn’t currently enough to work the miracles you usually take for granted. You’ll find that nothing like them is even remotely possible unless you feel it with your heart, not just your horniness, and then you’ll find that the “victim” of the enchantment you weave is most likely to be yourself. This, however, is not a bad thing.

Most Sagittarians just run with what they want, often to the ends of the earth, with discarded or misled people or pieces of self strewn along the way. (If you’re one of those few Sags who reacts against the power of your passions, strictly refusing yourself even the most minor of indulgences, disregard this horoscope. Concentrate on loosening up, instead.) As for the rest of you: stop being such selfish freaks. If it means sacrificing some of the things you want, to give someone else what they need this week, just do it.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Contrary to popular opinion, you are neither rock nor island. You depend on your community of chosen folk, and they count on you as well, when you’re not too busy neglecting them for your work or other “important stuff.” The thing is, you need them more than you think you do. Sadly, too many Capricorns discover this the hard way, when something really messed up comes along and they realize that their net has eroded and withered in their absence. Don’t let this happen to you. You have a chance to really be there for the people you want to stand by you. Don’t let them down.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You are the triumphant warrior returning home with the severed head of the Medusa-like monster held high, only to be told: “Um, that’s not Medusa. Poor thing. She sure is ugly, but she ain’t a gorgon. Sorry!” All that hardwon pride transmutes instantly to utter sheepishness and remorse, and, yes, trepidation, as you realize you have to go out there again and face the real fiend. Scary prospect when just vanquishing her relatively powerless lookalike was all kinds of screwed-up. Nevertheless, that’s what you need to do. Apologize for your unintended decapitation, then head out to do the real work you set out to do—taking down the villain in your personal storyline.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You are the ocean, effectively. At any given moment, there are parts of you heaving with building-high waves, ravenous beasts surging through the cold water of impenetrable depths, seething currents and riptides that can suck the legs out from under whoever stands in their way (including yourself), as well as vast areas that serenely ripple with relative calm. How you appear to those nearby depends on which part of yourself rolls to consciousness’ shore with the daily tide. It can be downright alarming to some how quickly you seem to change from day to day, until they realize that it’s all you; you’re just the most complex and bewildering person they know. Most of us have figured that out; gently clue in the remaining few still lingering fearfully in the dark.
HIV COUNSELING AND TESTING If you feel that you have been potentially exposed to HIV and would like Free, Confidential and Anonymous testing call the Maui AIDS Foundation at 242-4900. It is important to know your HIV status so that you do not unknowingly pass the virus to others, also early detection is vital to your health and treatment. The Maui AIDS Foundation now offers Drop-In HIV Counseling and Testing (No appointment necessary) Drop in hours are Mon.-Fri. 8:30am to 4:30pm, Wed. 8:30am to 7pm 1935 Main Street, Wailuku For more information on HIV/AIDS, STD’s including Viral Hepatitis and HIV Counseling and Testing call the Maui AIDS Foundation at 242-4900. In Hana call 248-7801, Lanai 5656722, and Molokai 553-9086.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) This week, do what you do best: Remake reality to suit you. You Rams are notorious for impetuously rushing into a situation, horns lowered, and just bashing at it until it yields to your indomitable will. This is unnerving and daunting to nearby observers, and disempowering and frightening for those actually in danger of getting gored on your unstoppable resolve. (Let’s not even get into some of the disasters that have resulted.) Consequently, tremendous efforts have been made to train you out of that mostly bad habit. However, there are occasions where it’s more than useful—it’s necessary. This is one.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) In at least three recent dreams I’ve noted that I was dreaming without taking that realization to the next logical step and having sex with celebrities, flying like Superman, being worshiped like a god, or all three at once. You, too, have missed out on numerous opportunities to take advantage of a favorable situation, one that could almost have you vigorously exercising your stud(ette)hood, soaring high overhead, or being adulated by crowds of screaming admirers. Luckily, there are one or two more chances remaining this week to at least momentarily live out some of your silliest and most compellingly unrealistic fantasies. Watch for them, and grab them.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Snakes lurk malignly in the tall grass, rife with aggression and venom. Just wandering into their vicinity could be enough to trigger a potentially lethal bite. Luckily, I’m here to warn you not to walk in those dangerous territories this week. Stick to the paths and don’t put any appendages where you can’t clearly see them. That goes for fingers, tongues and other parts, not just feet. I mean it. Be adventurous next week. But just for now, keep tabs on any part of yourself you’d like to keep. You don’t know what might be skulking just out of sight, but it’s a pretty good guess that it ain’t good.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Feng shui your apartment, or at least rearrange the furniture. You need some stirring up and the best way to do that is to mess with your home, where you keep at least half your identity. New things will rise to the top of your personality simply by moving the couch, rotating your bed 90°, or switching rooms with one of your roommates. Pieces of you are buried in the dust bunnies in that heretofore unreachable corner of your bedroom, or between the couch cushions. They’ve been there so long, you almost forget about those parts of yourself. Take them out and wear them like old clothes that have been out of rotation so long they’re cool again.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Just because your loved one doesn’t keep a picture of you in their wallet doesn’t mean they don’t love you. Au contraire, they’re just showing it in different ways, and probably ways that are far more meaningful to them than a tiny photo mug-shot next to their money. Stop looking for love in exactly the language you’re used to; no one speaks it fluently enough, and most aren’t trying. Instead, be more open to it coming in various surprising, exciting and eminently cool shapes. If you’re willing to be romantically multilingual, you’re likely to have a thrilling and fascinating week.

Some of you have even lost track of who you actually are when you’re not reacting to other people (and their insanity). No need to disappear—preparatory phone calls, emails and outgoing voicemail messages are a good idea. But at some point—for at least a couple of days, if not the whole week—lock your door, unplug the phone and don’t speak to anyone unless they’re selling you a cup of coffee or renting you a DVD. This is your time. Don’t screw it up by sharing it with anyone else.

MAUI TIME WEEKLY
OCTOBER 7, 2004
BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS
Why, oh why, did we turn right? Sometimes I need to rely on my friends for a little memory recall on past outings. For instance, I could not remember what the hell I did that one Friday before my roommate Jen left on vacation. So I asked her and even she had to think about it. “Okay, I remember the day,” she said. “So I think we went to go see a movie at the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center [in Kahului] and then I went and got Shiseido [skincare products] at Macy’s and then we came upon this wonderful farmers’ market in the center, where we bought mangoes, apples, bananas and orchids, and we swore we would make that our new Friday ritual. Then on our way back home, we stopped at the Sly Mongoose [in Lahaina] and had a beer and bought porn [Starbutts DVD, $7] in the parking lot. Then later, we went to the Reggae Festival [in Wailuku] with Kim and Sasha and we had to sneak in and whatnot [we had tickets—long story] and we laughed our asses off and danced the whole night. But then you and I left early to go to Wendy’s [in Kahului] and then we had the ‘international’ experience with the most beautiful boys in the world and we dorked out…” The “international” experience she was referring to occurred when we were driving and noticed a green International Scout pickup truck with two strapping young hotties in the cab. In a scene reminiscent of American Graffiti, only without the Brylcreem, we pulled up beside the hotties, giggling, and glanced over. Then they revved their engine and smiled at us. We giggled. They asked us where we were going and we giggled some more. Unable to form intelligible sentences, we turned right—away from them. We ended up going to Wendy’s and sitting there in stunned fluorescent silence, wondering what compelled us to become 30 going on 13. And no, we haven’t even seen that movie. Jen and I concluded that the worst thing is not what boys do—it’s the things we don’t do, out of fear. Fear of failure, fear of success. Fear of actually watching that porno we just bought. Last weekend marked the second annual Maui Time Weekly retreat to a cabin at Wainapanapa State Park in Hana. The purpose of the retreat was to form a collective consciousness on the mission of our little alternative newsweekly. Yeah, we played Backgammon and Yahtzee. We also ran out of alcohol—that’s seven bottles of wine, a gallon of Sky Vodka and three cases of beer between 10 people—on the first night. I spent my time concocting a horror movie screenplay based on the weekend about a group of young adults alone in a cabin in the woods. Yeah, I think it’ll sell. By the second night, we went to the Hotel Hana bar, where we ran into world music spinking DJ El Gato and his lovely housemate “L.” Obviously without thinking it through, El and “L” told us about a party they were going to so we unabashedly invited ourselves to trail along. With Sasha driving and Dan complaining, we followed El and “L” in their sports sedan through the rainforest-laden curvy roads of Hana, past the bamboo hut and juice stand, turning left down an unpaved path to nowhere—and certainly not the party location. As we began our steep climb back up to the highway, El’s car got stuck in the mud so the girls—yep, the GIRLS—got out and pushed. Eventually, we found the party in an elaborate, sprawling Swiss Family Robinson-like tree house, with throngs of dancing Bohemes. We quickly discovered happy music emanating from a small room packed with a spinning, twirling mass of smiley faces. The band was actually quite good—someone in our entourage swore the late Jerry Garcia himself was singing vocals. For me, that’s not necessarily a plus so I went exploring across a swinging bridge. I found several people lounging, including our goddess Kim who was in the midst of making quite an impression on the beautiful Bohemian men in attendance. “I was walking across some leaves, minding my own business,” said Kim, “and then on my next step, I was up to here in water and all these frogs were jumping out.” She ended up being escorted out of the pond and back to the car by one Lucien (pronounced Loo-shun). That Kim—she’s got the smooth moves, I tell ya. But none of that really matters in the light of what happened on Sunday: Amy and Randall’s baby Blue Annah was born. And you better believe she will never jump in any pond to kiss any frogs during my reign as Auntie Holoholo! MTW
