A: I have no idea. Not a day goes by that we don’t ask ourselves the same question. “What did all these shmoes do without us way back when?” I asked just this morning. We all just stood there and shook our heads. Q: Who was a better British Prime Minister—Benjamin Disraeli or William Gladstone?

A: Tough call. Both were excellent administrators for Queen Victoria, but Gladstone is probably the better of the two. Sure, Disraeli’s Factory Act and Climbing Boys Act made working life easier, but Gladstone brought about the secret ballot to protect voters, campaign spending limits and a broadening of voter rolls to including working class men. He even tried to get the government to accept Irish Home Rule, but that was a bit much to ask of Victorian Parliament. Plus, Gladstone got more tail. Q: What should I do this weekend? A: Hold on, let me ask Sam. “Hey Sam! Some guy wants to know what to do this weekend! Sam! Oh, she’s not here? Well, where the hell is she? Yes, this is important. What do you mean she got the day off? I don’t remember—oh wait, yes I do. Never mind.” Yeah, Sam’s not here. Why don’t you just consult our outstanding calendar section? It’s got everything—even resort shows! You know, if you’re into that sort of thing. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. Q: Is journalism hard? A: Hell no. I mean, if you’re honest and diligent about it, I suppose it can be pretty tough, but for many papers it’s just a matter of reprinting press releases. Their toughest call is making sure they have an equal number of grip-’n-grin photos (corporate exec shaking another corporate exec’s hand) and peopleholding-novelty-sized-check photos (corporation donates money to local non-profit). And if you get stuck for stories, you just fall back on that old journalistic standby: If you don’t know, just make it up! MTW

ehbrah@mauitime.com I was following your truck in traffic on my way home from work in Lahaina the other day. You certainly inspired me, but not in a good way. You see, your Ford F-150 had trash blowing from the bed all the way from the Westside to Kahului. And you hit all the good spots—Puamana, Guardrails, Olowalu, even Toilet Bowls. A ridiculous amount of trash spilled out of your truck. Then, when we passed Thousand Peaks and the trade winds came howling through, I was sure you were going to pull over and batten down the hatches. But NO! You kept on truckin’ so McGregor’s and Ma’alaea could take a licking. Funny thing was that you had “Live Aloha,” “D.A.R.E.” and “Honor Roll” stickers over your bumper. But the one that really motivated me to write in had to be the “In Deep Surfboards” sticker. Dude: you surf, have kids, work and aspire to live aloha. Wake up! Stop letting your trash blow everywhere! Either that or get some new bumper stickers.

Explosive!

“Level the Playing Field’

Another reason to worry about crushing cars at Kanaha Mike Kitagawa’s proposal to put a car crushing and storage facility next to the Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary is fast becoming an explosive issue. Literally. Officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Department of Land and Natural Resources Division, among other state and federal agencies, have already gone on record saying that crushing cars could harm the sensitive Kanaha Pond (see “The Big Squeeze,” Apr. 7). Now add the Maui County Department of Fire and Safety to that list. The fire department’s mission is to protect life, environment and property. According to official comments filed with the county on the Kitagawa proposal, the site presents a potential threat to all three. “A fire is a very real possibility at this location, even with most/all vehicle fluids

Cruise Control Vessel: Infinity Operator: Celebrity Cruises Complement: 2032 Last Maui Visit: April 9-10, 2005 Last Center for Disease Control Inspection: Dec. 11, 2004 Score: 96 out of 100 Go to the Celebrity Cruises website (www.celebrity.com) and you’ll find that their 91,000 ton Infinity “is steeped in prestige and elegance”; “consistently makes a long-lasting, luxurious impression” and “resonates with rich marble and wood accents and signature Celebrity style.” She certainly made an impression with CDC inspectors last December. While they did award her a handsome score, they also found a few blemishes on that signature Celebrity style. Like the way staff was storing serving tongs in a glass of water over at the Deck 10 pool bar. The pool bar pantry dishwasher also hadn’t been using water that was hot enough since mid-November. Then there was the way the Ocean Bar staff would stow open bottles of wine with the beer kegs in the undercounter refrigerator. And who could forget the “moldy flat of mushrooms” noted in the vegetable refrigeration room. Very luxurious indeed.

What fire officials are afraid of removed,” wrote Captain Val Martin. One of Martin’s biggest concerns is that the fuel load of upholstery and interior plastics are more than enough to maintain and spread a fire throughout the stored vehicles. “Brake fluid is a major concern due to its characteristics and its ability to spontaneously ignite when mixed with certain oxidizers,” Martin added. While Kitagawa plans on draining the fluids before crushing, residual fluids could be trapped in the lines and cavities when crushing begins. Kitagawa has said he wants to do whatever it takes to address these and other environmental concerns about his application. He’s noted that there are two fire hydrants on an adjoining property and the equipment on-site will carry a fire extinguisher. But if a fire occurs, Martin is also worried about contaminating the Kanaha Wildlife Sanctuary. “All water used to fight a fire at this facility may eventually runoff into the protected wildlife area,” he wrote. “This runoff water may include residual contaminants such as motor oil, coolant, brake fluid, etc.” Martin also worries that in the event of a fire, the prevailing trade winds will allow the smoke to travel to populated areas in the Kahului area. “This is a serious health hazard and the smoke content will be more harmful to residents as compared to organic matter,” he wrote. Fire Chief Carl Kaupalolo explains that we have to look carefully at the site’s proposed location. “Not only is this property next to a pristine Wildlife Sanctuary,” he said, “it is in a high occupancy area.” High occupancy, to say the least: neighboring properties include The Gas Company storage facility, the Maui Oil Company office building and fuel dispensing facility, VIP Foods and an office building.

Demirbag told me that while he cannot control what happens around his facility, he’s also concerned about a possible explosion. Currently, The Gas Company facility has two 210,000-gallon liquid propane tanks and four 30,000 gallon horizontal or bullet tanks on their property. They’re also planning to add six more 30,000-gallon bullet tanks. “Kitagawa’s U-shaped property surrounds our storage tanks and building,” Demirbag told me. “The possibility of a fire is a great concern for our company.” Some of the occupants of the office building fronting Kitagawa’s property are uneasy about their new neighbor as well. Ralph Sifford, who owns Second Wind Sail Surf and Kite, told me he’s nervous about having the crushing facility in such close proximity to his business and the neighboring retail space. “This is my livelihood,” he said. “This building holds my inventory, my employees, and our future. Exposing the neighboring business owners and their employees to the risk of a fire is not right.” While Maui desperately needs a facility to deal with abandoned cars and appliances, it’s becoming clear that the lot directly adjacent to the Kanaha Wildlife Sanctuary and many local businesses is a bad choice. “I would like to suggest that a different site be found that would limit the exposure of a fire to less populated areas,” Fire Captain Martin wrote. “I would also like to suggest that a site be found that does not border a wildlife refuge or sanctuary.” MTW

Spend just a few hours behind a bar—or a few minutes talking to someone who has—and you’ll get an earful of how arbitrary and even draconian the Maui County Liquor Rules can be. Performers can’t say naughty words on stage; customers can only dance inside the specially taped-off dancing zone; employee names on timesheets must be spelled out exactly as they appear on official county Liquor Control paperwork. A violation of any of those laws could bring thousands of dollars in fines or worse on the establishment. For the last couple of months, the LC has been working on revising those rules. The extent won’t be known until they begin holding public hearings, but local liquor licensees and manufacturers wasted no time getting into the act. Enter year-old Makawao-based Haleakala Distillers, which makes the GMOfree and vegan-friendly Mo’ Bettah Rum. On Mar. 14, 2005, company manager Harrison “Jim” Sargent wrote two letters to the Maui County Liquor Commission asking for a couple rule changes. For a company that boasts on its website (www.haleakaladistillers.com) that it employs no attorneys, accountants or consultants—“Why have a bunch of ‘suits’ sucking resources out of the company when they have no impact whatsoever on its actual products?”—Sargent sure crafted a couple fine legal arguments that two provisions of the Maui County Liquor Rules—08-10111 and 08-101-22—are arbitrary and unfairly penalize locally owned spirits distillers. Rule 101-11 makes it far easier and economical for “Fortune 500 companies, such as Anheuser Busch” to deliver booze than smaller, locally owned labels like Haleakala. Rule 101-22 prohibits spirits distillers from selling their products in “tasting rooms,” though it’s completely legal for beer and wine manufacturers to do so. Being helpful, Sargent even included possible rule change language in his letters. “All that is ought here is a ‘level playing field,’” wrote Sargent. “The local economic playing field should not benefit one product class at the expense of another, nor should it handicap any local product from competing with imports.” There’s a certain logic to his requests, which is why Sargent is going to need all the luck he can get.

WEDNESDAY, APR. 6 A recent Paia Bypass report put out by the state Department of Transportation—the same outfit that’s catching hell for supposedly not being responsive to legislative inquiries on the proposed Superferry—has a couple local senators crying foul. According to today’s Maui News, that report’s prediction that the long-awaited Paia Bypass would be done by 2017—sharp!—thoroughly pissed off state Senators J. Kalani English (D, 6th District) and Shan Tsutsui (D, 4th District). But fear not! The DOT told the News that the report “was not accurate.” In fact, the bypass is supposed to be done way earlier—2012, sharp! See, English and Tsutsui got all worked up over nothing. The Bypass will be done in a scant seven years, not 12. Feel better? You know, such scheduling would be adequate, even reckless, if the Bypass was a 30-mile long, eight-lane elevated freeway that cut through seven neighborhoods and required kicking thousands of people out of their homes. But it’s not. The Paia Bypass is only supposed to run a few miles through cane fields. Guy could cut the corridor this weekend in a pickup with both doors left open.

Just stellar work. No, really, it’s just filled with helpful information everywhere. Well, everywhere except for page 109 and its accompanying Table 6.1.2: “Average Distribution of other newspapers, Maui County.” It’s a simple table— just the names of local weeklies, bi-weeklies and monthlies published on Maui with their circulation numbers. Considering the detail and statistical breakdown of some of the other tables in the book, it’s probably the easiest data you guys compiled. You just find all the papers, then write down the circ figures that appear next to the staff boxes. And this you did for every weekly on Maui— except one, one especially close to my heart. Great job, and I mean that.

against a couple ungodly rich Cameron family members who used to run the pineapple/land development giant. Though Eagar does a fine job detailing the nagging grievances of former board member Claire Sanford and her mother, former director emeritus Mary Cameron Sanford—their exit from the ML&P board of directors came shockingly close to their blasting Cole’s actions as CEO, go figure—he never once mentions that the Camerons used to be his employer. For 60 years the Camerons owned The Maui News, along with their sizeable stake in Maui Land & Pineapple. They bought the paper in 1940, then sold it five years ago to West Virginia-based Ogden Newspapers, which has since bought up nearly all the papers listed on page 109 of the 2004 Maui County Data Book cited a few days ago. Funny how something small like that might have slipped his mind.

MONDAY, APR. 11

friends and I are talking about it when John announces that he’s running for pope. He says he’s eminently qualified—he’s a Catholic, mostly, and he’s already named John, so that pretty much puts him halfway there. He also says he knows more about pepper grinders than any guy really should. So I guess he could really help out the Vatican with their soup and salad preparation, which I have on good authority has really gone downhill for the last decade or so. But then he went and admitted that he also likes the ladies, and you know how big a no-no that is in the Catholic Church, so he’s got a big strike against him. But on balance, we all had to admit that John is probably an excellent candidate for pope. He’s got my vote.

SATURDAY, APR. 9 Oh, so that’s how they choose a new pope. Hey, you don’t know where I can unload 20,000 “Vote John for Pope” buttons, do you? What? Oh, no reason, I’m just asking.

SUNDAY, APR. 10 The Maui News runs a massive story today by reporter Harry Eagar on the war pitting the ungodly rich current Maui Land & Pineapple Company leadership headed by Chairman of the Board/CEO David Cole

OVERHEARD... “I KEPT HEARING ALL THESE PEOPLE SAY ‘OH, LOOK AT ALL THIS WEIRD WEATHER.’ I KEPT WANTING TO SAY ‘COME ON! IT’S JANUARY! IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HOT ALL THE TIME!’” -Girl talking to guy at the Kahului Ale House, Apr. 11

A rigorous investigation by the Honolulu Advertiser has determined that the state Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA)—which is run out of our wonderful Attorney General’s office—is in terrible shape. What’s worse is that every two or three years—since 1992—the state comes to this identical conclusion, but then shrugs its collective shoulders and goes on wasting time and money instead of efficiently assisting the children of broken families, which is kinda what it’s supposed to do. Today the paper bashes its office computer system called KEIKI—don’t you love when bureaucrats get all cutesy with computer system names and such?—that took five years and $50 million to construct and even though it came online seven years ago is still plagued by problems. And yesterday, the Advertiser reported that the CSEA is dead last nationwide in going after deadbeat moms and dads. Somehow CSEA has neglected to get the kids more than $500 million in delinquent payments. Oh, and because the work has been so crappy, the state has lost millions in federal incentives designed to reward good collections. And the state’s response to all this? It shelved $11.8 million in accounts so the fed would never see them as delinquent. Now that’s service!

TUESDAY, APR. 12 Just how monstrous is the Carlyle Group going to get? It’s bad enough that last month the state Public Utilities Commission “conditionally approved” the defense giant and global private equity firm’s proposed takeover of our own Verizon Hawaii. Now the Washington Post is reporting that Carlyle—which enjoys cozy ties to the Bush family, the Saudi regime and a laundry list of former world leaders—is raising $250 million for a big land grab across Korea, Japan and China, which apparently stopped being “communist” about 20 years ago. Anthony Pignataro is currently finishing the E! True Hollywood Story on former Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart. MTW


NEWSOFTHEWEIRD TRUE ROMANTIC The inspirational Charles Gonsoulin of Los Angeles, pursuing a Canadian woman he had met on the Internet, sneaked across the border on foot in February from the North Dakota side (because a 1984 crime would have prevented his legal entry), heading for the bus station in Winnipeg, 75 miles away, even though he had no experience with sub-zero temperatures. When police picked him up just inside Canada, he was disoriented and had such frostbite that he lost 10 fingers and most toes. But he said later, “It was all worth it for me. It’s the difference between sitting around dreaming about things and going out and getting them. I know my life is complete.” He was scheduled for deportation as soon as he recovers, and the pair still haven’t met. The woman lives in a Montreal suburb, 1,400 miles from Winnipeg.

IN THE NAME OF RESEARCH In 1989, after his release from prison on petty crimes, John L. Stanley undertook the serious study of criminology, lecturing and even hosting a Dallas radio program on crime. In December, he confessed to robbing a Commerce Bank in Kansas City, Mo., saying he needed to return to prison to further his study, telling the judge, “[T]here are some things about crime you can’t understand unless you get into the belly of the beast” and that he needed to “be secluded and do the things I need to do while I still have the time. You can take a butterfly and put it on a light stand, but until you are a butterfly and fly, you can’t understand why a butterfly flies.” Stanley showed up for sentencing in March in a wheelchair,

Because her parents failed to pay the healer’s full fee, the penis had begun to grow.

Dederer, now a paraplegic, had disregarded “no diving” signs and continued to jump into the Wallamba River until an accident occurred. A sympathetic judge regarded the signs inadequate, in that none said that diving was “dangerous.” Murphy, now partially blinded with 17 metal plates in his head from a 40-foot fall in a warehouse, claimed that if a perimeter fence had not been broken, he never would have gotten in to have his accident.

*Same day booking only subject to availability. Kama’aina friends and family! Only one ID requred.

One of the hallmarks of modern, mainstream journalism is the newspaper editorial. American dailies like the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and even our own Maui News tell us that their news is objective—so thoroughly fact-based that all opinion must be reserved for a special section called “Opinion.” This wouldn’t be such a bad system— if the newspapers actually expressed real opinions in their “Opinion” sections. The reality is that the big dailies usually waste space in their editorials summing the various points of view on a given issue, then ending by appealing for calm or calling for “balance.” At first glance, The Maui News’ April 7, 2005 editorial “Evolution Needs Balance” seems to be exactly that kind of milquetoast blather. Never mentioning a specific issue—it could easily refer to the current fight over requiring a full environmental review of the proposed Superferry linking Maui to Oahu—the piece begins with a nostalgic recalling of the days when Maui was “much smaller” and complaints “tended to be muttered rather than shouted.” But then the editorial tone shifts, seemingly attacking the concept of suing the gov-

Who would oppose this? everything” and “whatever is being opposed grinds to a halt” really show how off-balance the editorial truly is. The News could simply have been upfront and written that “people should just accept what the government tells them and shut up,” but how many of its read-

“IF YOU ARE AGAINST SOMETHING, YOU ARE FOR SOMETHING,” BROWER SAID. “IF YOU ARE AGAINST A DAM, YOU ARE FOR A RIVER.” ernment to stop something seen as unjust or the idea of opposition itself. It’s hard to tell, since the author masks real opinion behind subtlety and abstract verbiage. “It seems that hardly a week goes by that some group of individuals, organized or otherwise, is objecting to some project, program or new business enterprise,” read the editorial. “When government officials seem unresponsive, critics of proposals go to court and whatever is being opposed grinds to a halt.” The editorial ends with the classic call for balance, though by now the author is using such loaded language that a prodevelopment bias is obvious. “Someone needs to keep an eye on the doings of tunnel-vision bureaucrats and those focused on profits only, but there needs to be a rational balance between the anything-goes elements in the islands and the citizens against virtually everything if Maui is going to evolve in any rational way,” notes the News in the classic mainstream but-onthis-hand fashion. Phrases like “citizens against virtually

ers sipping their morning coffee would have nodded in agreement? Deriding environmentalists and conservationists as mere obstructionists “against” proposals and “evolution” is an old one. In John McPhee’s 1971 book Encounters with the Archdruid, he recounts an appearance the fiery, radical conservationist David Brower made before an audience. “I hate all dams, large and small,” McPhee quotes Brower as saying. “Why are you conservationists always against things?” a critic from the audience asked. Instead of defending his opposition, Brower flipped the debate on its head. “If you are against something, you are for something,” Brower said. “If you are against a dam, you are for a river.” In Brower’s world, and that of most conservationists, it’s the homebuilder, the runway-paver and the harbor-dredger who stands “against” nature. For them, progress is not the natural state of affairs, but an unrelenting opposition to everything they hold dear and important. Perhaps someday The Maui News will understand that. MTW


ONO KINEGRINDS

Bamboo Chi Visiting a wondrous land without having to leave Maui As we entered Bamboo Chi, I felt as if I were entering a mellow, cosmopolitan lounge in a large Asian city. A giant golden Buddha greeted us with a smile in the foyer, a koi pond at his feet. The large open dining room divides into a stage area and dance floor, with tables to the left. Ultra modern couches, glass tables, candles, hanging veils and romantic lighting adorn the lounge to the right.

Bamboo Chi 100 Wailea Ike Dr., Wailea, 879-4777. Open Sun.-Thurs., 5 p.m. to 10 p.m; Fri., Sat 5 p.m.-12 a.m.; Live entertainment Fri. and Sat. $$$

We chose the lounge for its chic comfort and exotic charm. My companion said that she felt “transported by the exotic quality to some special place” and the décor is certainly meant to do this. It was a slow Wednesday evening so we got a whole corner to ourselves, allowing us to kick back and enjoy this trip to an imaginary Asian/Mediterranean/Hawaiian island. Of course, on a previous visit my date and I shared a corner with another couple and the close proximity of strangers actually made the experience more interesting as the openness of the lounge encourages conversation between patrons. Long, cushy and stylish couches are set up in the spilt level lounge area and each alcove shares two of them and a large round glass table. Each individual area boasts its own charm. Long purple veils, like an elegant mosquito net, hung from above us and low reddish lights illuminated the space. Palms graced our corner, giving my companion a wild and beautiful look through the fronds and their shadows. The food is every bit as exquisite and

multicultural as the decor. The menu consists of sophisticated tapas, or pupus, with selections including Mediterranean, Pacific Rim and Latin delights. Several fancy martinis go with the international lounge atmosphere— the minty Mojito Martini and the salty Margarita Martini very nicely represent Latin America, for example, but I opted for a Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale. Ceviche is my favorite dish and I like to try it wherever I see it. Bamboo Chi offers a Tahitian version with coconut milk. But on this recent visit it didn’t have the coconut milk, but was still called Tahitian Ceviche on the menu. It was no matter, since the traditional version is what we got and what I love. It had tender, fresh fish marinated in lime juice, scallions and peppers. It wasn’t too spicy, but it had the same little kick I’ve found in Peru. The nightly specials were remarkable on both my visits. The first time I was there I tasted their light, succulent Pacific snapper; on my more recent visit we shared the Opakapaka with creamy mashed potatoes, shitakes and ponzu. They perfectly grilled the substantive filet with light spices that complemented the fantastic flavor of the Opakapaka. We also ordered the Wailea curry with vegetables and jasmine rice. This fine yellow curry exploded with flavor while not overpowering with spiciness. I loved the Asian Chicken Skewers as well. Next time, I’m dying to try the Cordero Barcelona—grilled lamb with scalloped potatoes and a Moroccan honey/mint vinaigrette. Several salads sound delicious, too, like the Chevre Goat Cheese or the special Ahi salad. The experience is worth the high price tag, around $80 for two. The service was impeccable—our waiter Jake was attentive, present and relaxed without being over-bearing. The distinct ambience and unique cuisine make Bamboo Chi ideal for a first date or a night out with a group. It’s an outstanding dining experience, transporting the diner to a wondrous land without even leaving Maui. MTW

EMPLOYEE OF THE

WEEK AS TOLD TO GABRIELLE POCCIA

Brad Kim Food Runner, Aloha Mixed Plate I was born on Oahu and moved to Maui when I was 23, through a transfer with ABC Stores. After 9/11, the company announced that it would be cutting back hours of employees due to less tourism in the islands and so I decided to take a full-time job with security for Tiffany’s and Co. I worked at Tiffany’s with the manager of Aloha Mixed Plate and he offered me a casual job, helping with the company’s catering business. I enjoyed working with the bartenders and management of Aloha Mixed Plate and so in September of 2004 I decided to apply to work at the restaurant. Now I work part-time as a food runner. For more than a month now I have also been working as an air-conditioning apprentice for Sturdevant Air Conditioning. I went down to seasonal sales at Tiffany’s so I could pursue this interest from a desk job to labor. Hopefully, in two years I will have only this job—a fulltime career installing and repairing air-conditioners and refrigeration systems. I try to keep a smile and my energy positive because it makes work better for my co-workers and the customers. I also like it when things are clean. Dirty ketchup bottles are my pet peeve. The most important thing for me is that I like the people at my different jobs. I could be digging holes and if I liked the people I would enjoy my job. Everyone could use a little more time-off. That will allow me to spend more time with my family and friends and I could focus more on my interests like paddling with the Napili Canoe Club. I will probably still pick up a shift or two at Aloha Mixed Plate, though, because I really enjoy the people. MTW

Where To Get It PAUL ROPP

BAHAMA MAMA

This dark, cozy boutique has been open since November, 2003. The lightweight, hand-loomed cotton and silk clothes with sophisticated embroidery based on Egyptian, Tibetan and Celtic designs hang on either wall. They’re arranged by tone: water, fire, earth and forest. The men’s clothes come in all four tones as well, but that inventory is low so they sit in their own section. Ropp himself is every bit as colorful as his clothes. The combination hippie/Wall St. shark recently celebrated his 60th birthday. He began 30 years ago designing T-shirts, one of which hangs today in the Smithsonian. Known for walking his Great Dane down Park Ave. in New York while wearing a top hat and tails, he also a tendency towards incendiary quotes. To the Honolulu Advertiser two years ago, he even paraphrased Nietzsche by noting that “fashion is dead.” More recently, he told a magazine, “I am not in fashion per se; I am in ‘artsy fartsy.’” Located in Whaler’s Village on the lower level, Ka’anapali, 661-8000 or online at www.paulropp.com.

When Natasha Smith first opened the doors to her stylish boutique, she wanted to provide women with a more reasonably priced alternative to shopping on Maui. Two years later, her concept still thrives and even includes a small rack of upscale consignment wear. But she mainly stocks clothing and accessories from popular designers like the fun, colorful pop-graphic fashions of Custo; the sweetly girlish styles of Sweet Pea; sexy, signature logo-wear of trendy Von Dutch and Rock & Republic’s sleek and edgy rockstar jeans. The store also carries more moderate $30 to $60 clothing lines, such as Frenzii and Rubber Ducky. And Smith does free alterations. She says what’s hot for the season is “anything hippie,” or, bohemian-inspired skirts and dresses in bright oranges, yellows and blues—especially three-quarter-length, full circle skirts. “No mini’s,” she mopes. “None of my designers are doing that this summer.” 62 Baldwin Ave., Paia, 579-8188

MAGGIE COULOMBE Hard to believe that Maggie Coulombe—who’s grabbed global fashion headlines for cladding Teri Hatcher, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Paris Hilton— first appeared in little ol’ Maui Time. Coulombe may be famous throughout the fashion world, but her 505 Front Street boutique is still pure Maui, though her assistant Arid does enjoy pumping up the volume on the stereo playing DJ music direct from Paris. A devotee of Coco Chanel’s philosophy of designing “so that you don’t notice the clothes, you notice the woman,” Coulombe really takes pride in her popular pareo. Comfortable and colorful, these are wraps that can be worn like a shawl, poncho, halter or off the shoulders and are breezy enough for women on holiday to wear over their swimsuits or local girls to throw on before going out. 505 Front St., Lahaina, 662-0696 or online at www.maggiecoulombe.com.

THE ENCHANTRESS Shopping at this unique North Shore boutique is an experience in ultimate femininity. Every wall and shelf is adorned with a dazzling array of paintings, photos and sculptures of fairies, mermaids and bronze goddesses. Racks upon racks hold distinctively romantic and timeless vintage-inspired dresses, handbags, cloaks and sensual lingerie. Yet they also incorporate the latest in contemporary design trends, from full-circle, layered skirts in every color and elegant Indian tunics with flowing sleeves to crystal-embellished tank tops and Ugg Boots. The tiny shop with a boudoir feel is filled with an ultra feminine collection of accessories, too, like elaborate sequined masks and handheld fans, costume wings of all sizes and colors, feather boas, butterfly hair clips and rhinestone tiaras, as well as a treasure trove of exquisite jewelry. Since 1999, owners Britta Alexander and Judith Carroll have wanted to “empower women and make them feel good about themselves,” as well as help women create their ultimate fantasy in everything from the red carpet to a white wedding. 23 Baldwin Ave., Paia, 579-6360 or online at www.mauienchantress.com.

ALICE IN HULALAND What’s outstanding about Alice in Hulaland is the personal style of owner Stan Cohen. A former rock ‘n roll stylist of the 1970s and ‘80s, Cohen opened up Alice in Hulaland almost two years ago to “do something different from the other shops in Paia.” Sure, he’s up to date on the latest fashions in Da Nang embroidered soft cotton shirts, skirts and silk cargo pants. And yes, there is an endless supply of American Apparel, kitschy-slogan Junk Food and high-quality Trunk Ltd. concert tees, as well as the hautest, most bootylicious jeans with bling. But you will also spot impressive vintage items throughout the uber-contemporary. A lovely assortment of hula lamps, along with racks of classic vintage hats and handbags frame the main entrance. And in the sandy-bottomed back area built around a massive, through-the-roof palm tree, there exists an impressive assortment of Tiki houseware, antique glass bottles, trendy yet stylish men’s clothing and home décor-inspiring rolls of colorful linoleum. 19 Baldwin Ave., Paia, 579-9922.

SPOTLIGHT FASHIONZ You don’t have to go to the city to get the latest in contemporary urban street wear. Oh, you didn’t know? Don’t worry, this boutique’s only been open a month. But that’s been plenty of time for store manager Jamila Parker to have collected the hottest hip-hop inspired couture, with famous designer labels like Le Tigre, as well as mega-celeb lines from Nelly’s sexy and sporty “Apple Bottoms” women’s apparel to a new label inspired by Tupac Shakur, created by his mom called “Makavelli” (Tupac’s alias). And what’s hot for next season? “Motorcycleracing outfits, gaucho pants, anything in aqua and greens,” says Parker. Spotlight Fashionz also carries a formidable selection of durags and watches, as well as men’s clothing. Located at the Maui Mall, Kahului, 871-6131.

SISTERS & CO. Presenting their case for one-stop shopping, this South Shore boutique is a beauty, hair salon and clothing store all in one! Sisters Linda, Rhonda, Sharon, Caroline and mom June began their unique boutique/salon concept almost three years ago. At the time, they had no idea how to start but quickly found the right spot to set up shop. “When you don’t know what you’re getting into, you have no fear,” said Linda. And within a few weeks, they were on a plane to L.A. to buy clothes. Self-proclaimed “shopaholics,” sisters Linda and Sharon—with June— select all of the clothes and jewelry together at the trade shows there, along with help from “some very cool vendors.” Currently, they carry casual yet sophisticated and always feminine designs from Tamara Catz, Rangoon and Da Nang, to name a few. Eventually, they hope to expand their tiny salon shop to include more of a spa atmosphere, with maybe a couch and coffee service—basically, more room to encourage their friends, customers and “sisters” to hang out. 1913 So. Kihei Rd., Kihei, 875-9888 or online at sistersandco.com.

BOHEMIA INC. There is no better name than “Bohemia” to describe this high-end consignment store. The mom and daughter duo of Lisa and Stephanie Strong have created an eclectic, international trading post for locals. Bohemia is a charming boutique of secondhand finds discarded from the multitudes of world travelers who flit in and out of Maui. It’s here that you find furniture from Bali, shoes from Spain, Brazilian bikinis actually from Brazil, European gowns, Colombian jewelry, as well as designer vintage and contemporary fashions, but at more accessible prices. Even some local upscale boutiques, like Holiday & Co. in Makawao, as well as local designers like Tamara Catz, will put some of their seasonal lines on consignment at Bohemia. And that means you can still look hot, without leaving your wallet cold. And empty. 101 Ka’ahumanu Ave., Kahului, 893-2500.

DJ Rap Friday, 10 p.m. at Hapa’s [MUSIC] On any given day you can find me strolling down Front Street with my headphones on, listening to sweet, simple sounds like Yo La Tengo or maybe Ben Harper. I’m a slow-paced girl and that’s how I like my music to be. House or drum ‘n bass music has never held that much of an appeal to me. In fact, I doubt I had ever listened to an entire song until last week when circumstance drew my attention to DJ Rap. I fancy myself an open-minded person, entirely willing to try new things. So I went and picked up Propa Classics, Volume 1, released in 2001. When I popped it in, the mood in the room changed and the conversation seemed to ebb and flow in sync with the rhythm. It was intense and visceral. If my life had a soundtrack, this record would’ve totally been playing that time I got lost in the woods a couple years ago. I was to speak with her—who also goes by the name Charissa Saverio—the following day and I was curious to see how this enigmatic voice drowning in a thousand beats would seem to me on a plain old Tuesday afternoon. I called her at about nine o’clock, interrupting Law & Order to my embarrassment. She said she didn’t mind—she was just winding down from her day. “I wake up at about nine everyday,” she said. “Have a spot of tea, sit in the sun for a couple minutes then work straight through till nine and chill out to Law & Order.” She was warm. Of course, I find everyone with a British accent warm. She was born to an Italian father and an Irish-Malaysian mother. Her childhood took her all over the world, as her father managed luxury hotels. At one time or another, she’s called Indonesia, Malta and Africa home. “It was a very sheltered upbringing,” she said. “I spent a lot of time in boarding schools.” While there, she studied classical piano and horseback riding. Soon the world beyond boarding school began to sparkle. When she was 14, Rap left home to backpack through Greece, Turkey and Europe. She then discovered Europe’s rave scene. “I basically dedicated my life to being a raver and that was it,” she once said in an interview. “I didn’t have any digs, I lived in a squat.”

DJ. In an industry that can safely be called predominately male, Rap told me she worked her way in with little difficulty. “It was easy,” she said, “because I was the first female to do all my own stuff.” She began playing any beats she could on pirate radio stations. She also gained support from DJ Paul Oakenfold in Ibiza and made a name for herself in the British underground club scene. Oh, and she’s hot. That’s possibly why Calvin Klein chose her to be part of the 2002 Dirty Denim campaign. But back to the subject at hand… After about four years of being on the scene, Rap decided to create her own record label in 1992 called Proper Talent. It allowed her to create, produce and record all of her own music out of her apartment office. “Every album is my favorite to produce,” Rap said. “I get to take my time and enjoy it. I love the technicality of house music and I love how musically advanced drum ‘n bass is.” Right now DJ Rap is working on her new album, Bulletproof, which should come out May 17, followed by a drum ‘n bass tour. In the meantime, she will be visiting our fair island. Call it a working vacation. And for us it’ll be a chance to get out of the house and shake our asses to something other than laidback acoustics. I was hesitant at first, too. But don’t be afraid, it should be a nice change. [REESE QUICK]

It was out of this atypical reality that Charissa Saverio morphed into DJ Rap—a label ownin’, record producin’ world renowned

The Corporation

Eat Your Vegetables!

Shimshai

Friday, 7 p.m. in Kalama Room 103 at Maui Community College

Friday, 7 p.m. at the Cameron Center Auditorium in Kahului

[FILM] During the 1930s and 1940s, IBM pursued a “strategic alliance” with Nazi Germany. As journalist Edwin recounted four years ago, IBM sold and maintained punch-card machines to the Nazis, who used them to keep track of Jews moving through the concentration camps. IBM’s response to the revelations was to simply say they were “old news.” Though an admittedly extreme example, all corporations are like IBM: they do as they please. Based on the book of the same name by Joel Bakan, this film treats the modern corporation the way it wants to be treated—as a person. Using interviews with business executives and wellknown talking heads like scary economist Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and Michael Moore, the film explores the corporation’s personality, obligations, mindset, principles and values. Guess what? It’s not in good shape. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

[LECTURE] Medical doctors tell us that the cancer rate is going up. Now there’s some good news. But did you know that people can prevent up to 70 percent of cancer deaths by eating vegetables? Your mother always told you to eat your vegetables—what, you thought it was punishment? She didn’t want you to get cancer, you fool. As part of the latest Vegetarian Society of Hawaii lecture on the glories of eating fruits and vegetables, Dr. Michael Greger will talk about how to get things like free radicals and antioxidants through a “plant-based diet” and how they will protect you from chronic, degenerative diseases. As always, the lecture and the accompanying refreshments are free. For more information, call 575-7694 or visit www.vsh.org. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

[MUSIC] According to the WebBible Encyclopedia, the word “shimshai” means “the shining one.” So for all intents and purposes, it makes sense that the man Shimshai is a musician who plays spiritual, life-affirming, original music and—as his press release states—fuses “an eclectic blend of reggae, soul and jazz with a world beat influence.” Friday’s performance will be a Dance Jam Concert; Sunday will feature Kirtan Devotional Music.

And if you’re one of those competitive types, this season’s regattas are on the way. To get you started, the Kihei Canoe Club is offering a series of Saturday Open House events April 16 through May 14 to learn more about the club or even go out for a paddle.

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY

Mishmash Adventure Derivative Hollywood movie whimpers “There’s no there there” is an apt way to describe the average Hollywood movie that occupies thousands of cinema screens across the country in a monopolized system that perpetually blocks out hundreds of foreign and independent movies. The latest adventure comedy from Paramount falls into that chasm as a shoddy derivative of the Indiana Jones and James Bond franchises.

Sahara

★★★★★ Rated PG-13/127 mins.

Matthew McConaughey plays generic sun-kissed treasure finder Dirk Pitt as he searches for an iron clad Civil War ship in the middle of the Sahara desert with his quirky sidekick and longtime best friend Al Giordino (Steve Zahn—Joy Ride). Penelope Cruz adds female distraction for the explorers as Eva Rojas, a doctor working for the World Health Organization to remedy a plague sweeping Africa from an epicenter in Mali. The movie is based on the popular novel by Clive Cussler (Raise

The Titanic). Sahara opens with a false start Civil War battle sequence that probably cost half of the film’s overall budget. In it, cannonballs from an offshore iron clad gunboat rip through trees and buildings on dry land while rebuffing a fierce attack. The explosive-heavy scene is wasted on the audience because, instead of lending context to a story that transpires 135 years later, it merely tips us off to the cardboard characters and lack of storyline to follow. As opening credits roll we get an intimate 360-degree view of the inside of Dirk Pitt’s uninhabited scientific lab as it’s lined with photos of him and his buddy Al tacked on the walls. From the unattended ever-burning Bunsen burner we know that this is a set designer’s handiwork rather than a place where any serious scientific study ever takes place. In a way the filmmakers are being honest by letting the audience know up front that this will be a hollow adventure movie. But it’s even worse than that. Matthew McConaughey does his best Charles Atlas impression while he and Al borrow a high tech speedboat from their wealthy employer Admiral Sandecker (William H. Macy) in order to search around the waters of

LL Cool M West Africa for the Civil War boat that locals call the “Ship of Death.” From a civil war era gold coin found in a West African river, Dirk believes that the ship of his obsessions may be buried in the sands of the Sahara that were supposedly covered in water 135 years ago. No cogent explanation is given on the fuzzy math used to make Dirk’s calculations, but it doesn’t matter much since Dirk’s search quickly becomes hijacked by a subplot about a corporate scumbag named Massarde (Lambert Wilson—Catwoman) who’s busy tainting Africa’s drinking water with nuclear waste disposal. If Massarde isn’t stopped, the constant surge of toxic water will infect the oceans and

bring ruination on the planet. So before Dirk can find his treasure trove desert boat, he must shut down Massarde’s gigantic power plant with the help of Eva and Al. For an adventure movie based on chase scenes in exotic locations Sahara never takes hold because director Breck Eisner and his team of screenwriters can’t agree on what the story’s about or what tone should resonate against it. It’s telling that Matthew McConaughey executive produced Sahara for the way he’s presented as a pin-up rendition of Indiana Jones. Hollywood, like Wile E. Coyote, keeps going back to the drawing board to come up with yet another variation on a defective formula. MTW

Travellers & Magicians 2, 5 & 7:30 p.m., Castle Theater With glorious views of the Himalaya as its backdrop, this adventurous emotional tour through the heartland of Bhutanese Buddhist culture from director (and former monk) Khyentse Norbu (The Cup) about two men and two women seking fresh horizons, "fulfills the promise of its title: It's transporting, it's magical" and a "warm, embracing film of transcendent beauty and spirituality," according to the LA Times. In Dzongkha (with English subtitles). 108 min. Unrated.

New This Week AMITYVILLE HORROR - (R) - Horror - So here we are again, at this house of horror. Back in 1994, Ronald Defeo confessed to methodically shooting his parents and four siblings while they slept, claiming "voices" in the house drove him to commit the heinous murders. A year later, the Lutz family moves into the house thinking it would be their dream house. But shortly after settling in, bizarre and unexplainable events, nightmarish visions and evil—worse than just a leaky roof— resides... Damn, who is their real estate agent?!

Now Showing THE BEAUTY SHOP – (PG-13) – Comedy – Here we are back in the chair again. Gina (Queen Latifia) has finally had it with her egotistical boss (Kevin Bacon). She ups and leaves, not only to open up a shop of her own but also taking a few of the key clients and shampoo girl (Andie MacDowell, Mena Suvaris and Alicia Silvertsone). Fixing up this rundown salon, Gina inherits a very colorful and sexy sassy new group of people, or just what is needed in a beauty shop—a bunch of chatty Kathy’s. FEVER PITCH – (PG13) – Romantic Comedy So Ms. Barrymore is at it again. At first, he seemed like just a simple guy (Jimmy Fallon) she meets and falls in love with. However, you know there’s always a problem. This time it’s baseball. Even though their lives are very different, the relationship seems perfect until... yes that’s right—the baseball season begins and she has to compete with his first true love: the Boston Red Sox. Hang in there, Drew. MISS CONGENIALITY 2 – (PG13) – Comedy – Goofy cute chicks rule! Like, Sandra Bullock for instance, who’s reprising her role as an FBI agent this time going undercover as a Las Vegas showgirl. Julia Roberts used to be cute and goofy, too, before she got all gaunt and sophisticated. But she’s not in this one anyway, so nevermind. CONSTANTINE – (R) – Action-Adventure, Suspense, Horror and Thriller – As our astute intern puts it, this film looks like a cross between The Matrix and Devil’s Advocate. We love that good vs. evil, Heaven and Hell stuff! Plus, it’s got beautiful Kauai-boy Keanu Reeves playing the tortured investigator of supernatural mysteries and hottie Rachel Weisz as... well, who cares. GUESS WHO – (PG-13) – Comedy – Bernie Mac plays a sarcastic dad who’s less than pleased that his daughter wants to marry some white dude played by Ashton Kutcher. Now, I know it sounds dumb, but if you… ah, who am I kidding. HITCH – (PG13) – Romantic Comedy – Will Smith plays a matchmaker who uses less than honest methods in his work—whahhhhh???!?!—and then gets busted by a totally hot undercover reporter played by Eva Mendes. Oh, and there’s a chick in

It’s just another one of them formulaic, cute teen chick underdog battles against “the popular girls” to rise up the ranks and win... something. A trophy? The presidency? Oh yeah, self-esteem. Whoopee. We all know self-esteem gets you nowhere. Just look at Robert Blake! Stars Michelle Trachtenberg, Joan Cusack and Kim Cattrall. MILLION DOLLAR BABY – (PG 13) – Romantic Drama – This Oscar-nominated film is getting rave reviews, but it’s really just another cliché-filled picture about a young boxer who’s had a tough life but, through sheer force of will, fights the good fight. Stars Hillary Swank, Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood, who also directed it.

true love. Aw, what a guy to care the morning after! Also starring Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Madsen and Jessica Alba. THE UPSIDE OF ANGER – (R) – Drama – A sharpwitted suburban wife, Terry Wolfmeyer (Joan Allen), has just been abandoned by her husband and is left to raise her four dsyfunctional, headstrong daughters. Hmmm... why did the husband leave again? Things get even more hectic when she falls for her neighbor Denny (Kevin Costner), a once-great baseball star turned radio DJ. Can you do that? Go Kevin! So now she has a new drinking buddy, but that causes havoc with the girls when they’re forced to juggle their mom’s new romantic interest along with their own dilemmas. Yep, sounds familiar.

SAHARA - (PG13) - Action/Adventure - Explorer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) takes on a treasure hunt in several regions of North Africa in search of a ship called The Ship of Death—why, Dirk, why?! Anyway, along with his smarty pants sidekick (Steve Zahn), they use their clever heroics to help out the beautiful Doctor Eva (Penelope Cruz), who believes this ship is the reason why there are a lot of mysterious deaths. She’s smart, that one. See Film Critique. SIDEWAYS – (R) – Comedy, Drama – This could be your typical road-tripping buddy flick, only the “buddies” in question are Miles (Paul Giamatti)—a downand-out failed novelist, middle school teacher and bitter divorcee but apt wine connoisseur—and his happygo-lucky friend Jack (Thomas Hayden Church), who has his own devious agenda for their big “wine tasting trip” before he gets married the following weekend. Also stars Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh. SIN CITY – (R) – Action-Adventure and Crime/Gangster – Another tale of a violent city where the police department is more corrupt than the bad seeds. This futuristic tale follows three stories, including one involving Marv (Mickey Rourke), a bad ass who is a Terminator-like, nearly impossible-to-kill street fighter. He goes on a rampage of vengeance when his one-night-stand gets murdered—correction, his one

In no time at all, you’ll have beautifully prepared returns, with every possible deduction and credit. The IRS will be happy, you'll be happy, and you may even discover something for yourself. That you actually ENJOYED it too. Call us today at 244-7770 for an appointment. You’ll be glad you did.

First off, drop a quarter in the bizzaro-world jukebox that is Thai Beat A Go-Go: two volumes of jangly, high-powered 1950s garage rock, with songs performed in Thai and broken English. These artists all have a forced exuberance that can only come at the end of a dictator’s gun. Your friends are guaranteed to shimmy to classics like “Kotmorn Yoop Yap (All Shook Up)” by teen heartthrob Sakarin Boonpit, and shake to that old chestnut, “Tamai Dern Sae (Why Do You Walk Like a Drunkard)” by crooner Payom Moogda. Also covered are “Shake Baby Shake,” “Day Tripper,” “Hit The Road Jack” and “Funky Broadway.” Laugh at them. Laugh with them. Who cares? Big, kitschy fun for all, Oriental style. —Subliminal Sounds 2004/2005

ADRIAN BELEW “SIDE ONE” You probably haven’t heard of this axe man, but you are definitely familiar with his pedigree: Frank Zappa, Talking Heads, King Crimson and David Bowie. For the past 30 years Belew has been accenting the best of prog rock with his off kilter, twang bar shaking, squeeling guitar, that sounds like how David Byrne dances. On this recent effort, Belew enlists some of modern prog’s current superstars—Les Claypool (Primus) on bass and Danny Carey (Tool) on drums. Now that’s a power trio. This album has a wide array of sounds. Songs range from heavy hitters that can shred wallpaper at 50 yards, surrealistic soundscapes and complex arrangements that tattoo Celtic designs on your eardrums. For adventurous listeners only. —Sanctuary Records 2005

STEREOLAB “MARGERINE ECLIPSE” The latest outing for the retro-future sound of Stereolab does not disappoint. Imagine Astrud Gilberto and Nico fronting the Velvet Underground playing a late night set of Esquivel tunes in the year 2084. Main composer and guitarist Sean O’Hagan creates intricate and beautiful soundscapes fusing various electronic bloops and bleeps with breezy orchestral arrangements and the cool vocal stylings of Laeticia Sadier. Margerine Eclipse almost feels like a greatest hits compilation, revisiting styles from earlier Stereolab releases. But even with the recent tragic death of backup singer/instrumentalist Mary Hansen from a biking accident, Stereolab continues to be the number one choice of cocktail music for the 21st century. — Elektra Records 2004

DOUG MARTSCH “NOW YOU KNOW” This is the first solo outing for Built To Spill singer/guitarist Doug Martsch. For those used to the epic indie guitar rock of Built To Spill, well, prepare for the softer and gentler side. The music matches his plaintive and earnest singing with a stripped-down acoustic setting, closer in style to musical hero Neil Young. Sinewy slide guitar solos replace the thundering grunge of his original band, and Martsch is just at ease with both. This album feels like a well-worn baseball glove. —Warner Brothers 2002 Andrew Shkolnik works at Request Records, 10 N.

ARTS&ENTERTAINMENT

BY PAUL WOOD

Shadowless Man Eric Paul Shaffer’s Lahaina Noon There are only two moments each year when you can stand under the sun and cast no shadow—two moments when the lamp of heaven is poised directly over the pointy top of your noggin. Each one is a “Lahaina Noon.” Each one is a moment of pure up-anddown relationship to the cosmos, a moment of vertical presence, a fixed moment that gets deeper, richer, higher the longer you have the strength to stand in that unmoving spot.

Eric Paul Shaffer Will appear with Jordan Jones on Apr. 15, 7 p.m. at Borders Books & Music, Kahului. Of course, most of us are too busy with horizontal activity to notice the Lahaina Noon. We live in a society that always rushes ahead—contra-flow coning, drivethru burger lines, Costco checkout lanes, baggage claim conveyor belts and calendars with paydays marked in red. So thank God for a poet like Eric Paul Shaffer, whose job is to grab these vertical moments and give them as gifts to the forward-churning world. Shaffer’s new book Lahaina Noon, debuting at Borders Books & Music in Kahului on April 15, gives us a whole slew of these vertical moments, each one as clear and as rich as a sunrise. Eric Paul Shaffer is an unusual phenomenon: a Maui poet. In American letters, the proper way to gain credentials as a poet is to publish widely in literary reviews, produce collections that draw critical acclaim, live like a happy monk and spend a lifetime capturing “Lahaina Noons.” Eric has those bona fide credentials. He has published in American Scholar, Chicago Review, Pearl, Ploughshares and North American Review, among many other respected quarterlies. He has written four previous books of verse, including Portable Planet and Living at the Monastery, Working in the Kitchen (published, as is Lahaina Noon, by Leaping Dog Press). He has won two prestigious literary awards—the 2000 Potent Prose Ax Prize for Poetry and the 2002 Elliot Cades Award for Literature (the top prize in Hawai‘i). I don’t know of anyone else who has achieved that kind of literary reputation while writing on, about and for the island of Maui. Eric will be at Border’s to share coffee and cake and readings from his new book.

COVER STORY

SURF

With him will be his friend and publisher, California poet Jordan Jones, who will add some readings from his own new collection called The Wheel. For us Maui people, what’s so great about this new book is that the entire collection is rooted here, in the landscape that we alone know so intimately. Although Eric’s sights are set on the broadest literary horizons, his book is a gift particular to this place. We know the place: Haleakala in starlight while driving mauka on ‘Oma‘opio Road; the Crater floor bathed in silver moonlight; an old missionary church near roaring surf; whales at sunset; a derelict bus abandoned in Pulehu Gulch. In “Kula Gold,” he describes this scene: Beyond Papawai Point, between the black backs of Lana‘i and Kaho‘olawe, Venus burns silver in the darkening sky. The poems inhabit our landscape, precisely captured. They deal compassionately with our living cohorts—mynahs, pheasants, skylarks, sharks and even “Big Paw,” that free-range leopard people kept spotting (or did they?) last year. For “Big Paw,” Eric writes: I wish you stealth. Run fast and far when you see us. We mean you no good, and I don’t want you dead or in a cage. I want no more killing or cages. Eric often looks at the natural world with such compassion that he feels compelled to apologize for the behavior of humans. In “Whales at Sunset,” for example, he says: May the whales never hate us as much as we love ourselves. And by the shore of this restless black sea, these blue stars, and the waning crescent yet to rise, may we kill ourselves before we kill the last of them. But I don’t want to portray this poet as a grouchy critic of Homo sapiens. Far from it. Eric’s wit and big-hearted humanity, so obvious when you meet him, permeate his poems. There are several humorous poems dealing with people. For example, the fellow who joins him in watching a skylark and then comments, “A man would have to be crazy to sing like that.” In another, Eric is out cutting grass when a man in a Lexus pulls up to offer him ten bucks

When Eric turns down the offer, Lexus asks, “So if you don’t cut grass, what do you do?” So Eric tells him: He considers my denim cut-offs, black-rubber yard boots, the cut grass steaming, lying redolent with green. “You don’t look like a poet.” It’s a fun poem, though too involved to really catch in a brief excerpt. The point here is to convey the fact that these poems are easy, clear, accessible to any reader. They are also enjoyably lucid when heard in a live reading. Eric will not dabble in the world of obscure poems that make listeners feel like dummies. No. His poems are easy to get into—and then hard to get out of; you keep circling around thinking about them as they deepen in meaning. Such is the vertical fascination of a Lahaina Noon. One of my favorites, here in its entirety, is called “The Light Alone”: The whole plane was dark with snoring and the flickering light of Hollywood images, except for sudden flashes of sun from one boy raising, lowering, and raising his window shade, one little boy who couldn’t let the light alone. Those flashes of illumination! I just can’t help but think that this little boy “who couldn’t let the light alone” is an apt symbol for the poet Eric Paul Shaffer himself. If you know Eric even slightly, as I do, you’d agree: he lives, somehow, in perpetual Lahaina Noon, darting out with bright ideas into our dark-rimmed world. Check out the shadowless man. He is giving us quite a gift. MTW

NEWS

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Someone’s counting on your tenacity. They’re trusting your crablike determination, hoping that, like one of those rebellious little crustaceans, once you’ve gotten your claws into something (or someone), you simply won’t let go. They need you to hang on so that they can act out all their worst behavior and still (astonishingly) not lose you. That’s why I’m urging you to counter your own nature and just release, right now. Sometimes you ought to put up with some shit; that’s part of what a commitment is. But this is likely to go too far. Express your boundaries, and then wipe your hands clean; whether they get to keep you around or not will be up to them.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Spring cleaning time, Leo. Personally, I’m going on a fast this week. I may get my hair cut. I’ll definitely clean my house, pay all my old bills, reorganize my desk, and basically do everything I can to completely eliminate clutter and waste. Follow my example. Once we’ve cleared out enough of the crap, some cool new (or forgotten) shit is bound to be exposed and fondly (re)adopted. Once that clarity’s in my grasp, I’ll make a list about the coming year’s intentions and put it up on the wall. Sounds corny, I know, but it will actually work. Try it. After all, what’s the harm in giving it a go? You can thank me next year.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Okay, here’s a review, since you’re having trouble enforcing the boundaries you require. You’re a supercharged battery. Of course people will try to tap into all that power and use it to fuel their own agendas. It’s hard to say no, because you’re kind, and you do have energy to spare. Yet you must refuse nevertheless; all this juice shouldn’t go to those who are simply the most aggressive about grabbing it or demanding it. Cut off those vampires and leeches at once. You come first. Take care of yourself—for real; I’m not kidding around. Then, and only then, decide who gets what’s left. Key concept: You choose, not submit to whichever prick is the pushiest.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Picture yourself in some craphole apartment. So many different tenants have passed through this dump that there are three inches of paint on the walls, and at least five layers of linoleum and carpeting on the floors, one on top of another. What with all the random scraps of junky furniture abandoned by previous occupants, it’s gotten pretty ugly. It certainly doesn’t suit you. Here’s the thing. I’m talking about a couple of the rooms in your head. They’ve gotten pretty ghetto. Isn’t it time you did the (admittedly hard) work to expose the beautiful hardwood floors and gorgeous antique molding on the walls, buried beneath all that crap? After all, you’re not exactly renting—you own this place. Isn’t it time you fixed it up nice, regardless of who did what to it before?

A public health message provided by The Maui AIDS Foundation.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You’re never accused of being shy, but the truth is you are, a little. Sure, when push comes to shove, you always rise to the occasion, but short of that pressure, you occasionally timidly hang back a little. It’s sometimes good strategy to let others take the lead, occupy the spotlight, while you remain the clever sexy one hovering at the edges. But the wallflower routine isn’t really you. Let go of that crap. You deserve more from yourself: nothing short of absolute confidence will do. You’re hot stuff and you need to act the part. Anything else is a lie.

“we do all the work . . . so you can enjoy your yard”

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Time for a haircut, a diet, a new wardrobe, a change of scenery, and perhaps even a new main companion. Don’t tell me you’re scared of transformation. (If you are, then I may already be too late.) However, I suspect you’re kind of tired of the way your life’s been going lately. This is the time to wreak an absolute metamorphosis on your existence, to the point where it (and you) are almost unrecognizable. Get rid of everything (and everyone) who doesn’t work, especially those who seek to control you or drag you down with their lameass, boring attitudes. What are you really about? It’s a good time to figure that shit out, and act on it.

Yank off that band-aid. You’ve got (metaphorically, of course) very hairy arms, and removing that sticky strip is going to hurt no matter how you do it. Why prolong your pain? Just grab an edge and swiftly tug the thing free. Not getting my comparison? Let me be more obvious: Extricating yourself from the situation you’re in can be either slow and torturous, or quick, sharp and clean. The choice, to me, is ridiculously clear. Nevertheless you’ve been considering (and perhaps even attempting) the cautious and excruciating route. End your (and everyone’s) suffering, and just get it over with. Right now.

NOTICES

Maui Time Weekly accepts credit cards for classified and display ads

What am I supposed to say? Don’t use your charm and good looks to get what you want? That’s like asking someone to go swimming with his arms tied behind his back. It’s a ridiculous proposition, one that deserves scorn, not consideration. Now, as long as you don’t make promises you can’t or don’t want to keep, I don’t think a sly wink here or a brilliant smile there is going to do any lasting harm to anyone. In fact, if you do it right, your flirting can make everyone feel good, even while they fulfill your every wish.

ALOHA VALUED READERS We would like to let our readers know that we try to screen most of our ads. We read back the ad copy to ensure that it is the correct information that advertisers want.

When you get something right, it’s very rare that you don’t take credit for it. You’re not shy about it. You step right up there and receive your reward and acclaim. And why shouldn’t you? You did good. Well, I’m afraid the same attitude must apply to your mistakes as well. If you’ve screwed up, the only way you can redeem yourself in the eyes of your colleagues, family or friends is to take unabashed responsibility for the error. You’re eminently forgivable—once you’ve asked for forgiveness. But until you own up to what you did wrong, no one’s going to give you anything but shade.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)

FRIENDLY & DETAILED

When you made a certain leap of faith a few months back, I was very proud of you, and especially pleased about how you resisted jumping to conclusions once you’d landed on the other side of the unknown. Instead, you patiently hung back and waited to see how things played out. Hanging back no longer works, though. Step up. Show that you’re truly committed to the life you’ve chosen. If you can’t do that now, you’ll never be able to. In other words, if you can’t say yes to everything that’s on the table right at this moment, you’re better off getting out, swiftly and completely, for everyone’s sake.

PLACING AN AD IS EASY!

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Wanderlust is taking hold. It’s springtime and the urge to fly somewhere and have some real purpose is probably almost irresistible. Go with it, by all means. Forget practicality; that’s for androids and accountants. Keep making choices that will make your life interesting, fun and passionate, not safe. But let me add to that one reasonable word of caution: avoiding the safe options doesn’t mean you need to be stupid and select the most foolhardy and impractical ones. Your gut knows there are “right” places for you to go and things for you to do. Relentlessly and diligently seek those out.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Improving your own position right now may not be possible. Nevertheless, you’re ideally situated to help someone else, someone who’s not doing as well as you. Don’t try to hide your benevolence (or charity, as some might see it), though. Make sure the person actually wants and needs what you’re offering. Be honest about your motivations and perspective, because any lie you tell (no matter how “white” or well-intentioned) will just backfire and screw you over. There’s no need to force aid on anyone despite her desires. Those truly in need of what you’re able to give will accept it gratefully.

HOLOHOLOGIRL

BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS

Supermodels and Superheroes Who’s the rookie in the tiara? -Green Lantern referring to Wonder Woman in Justice League: Secret Origins (2001) In the wee hours of the morn last Friday, I went to the store to get a couple bottles of champagne. It was very necessary, you see, as I was off to do a big time, high-fallutin’, very glamorous fashion photo shoot with models and everything. And I was the set assistant. Very glamorous. When I arrived with the food tray—a pack of gum, grapes and a carton of Marlboro Lights—the photographer, coordinator and models were knee-deep in haute couture fittings and professional makeup application. So as the very important set assistant, I assisted in opening the first bottle of champagne. And the second. Then we were off to location after location, toting garment bags and waterproof trunks stuffed with clothing, jewelry, shoes and other accoutrements, creating ghetto-ized makeshift dressing rooms on the side of the road while the lovely young models fought blazing sun, high speed winds, red dirt and leering onlookers to switch in and out of skintight tops, flowy dresses and short skirts while not sweating or getting makeup on anything. Glamorous, indeed. At the end of the day, Kim, BJ and I headed for drinks at the Kahului Ale House. And we were so over fashion at that point that we all subconsciously decided to don indistinctive black attire. The Easy and DJ Platelunch eventually performed but I believe it was the generous DJ’s offering of a tray of Irish Car Bombs that inevitably sent us a-packin’. The following Wednesday was Sasha The Kid’s birthday. So again with the champagne TBB, BJ, Sasha and I went up to Makawao, this time hanging with aunty Marlene and the boys at Casanova for a fabulously charmed Italian dinner. Then afterwards, we stayed on for the infamous Ladies’ Night festivities, ordering birthday shots like Lemon Drops and Kamikazes. After the third round and not even buzzed, the four of us played the If & Who Game, which is basically a series of questions that allows us single girls to purposefully scope out the room and assess the prospects, while giving our married friends a chance to be involved in the conversation. Anyhow, the questions include such gems as: “If you had to elect a stranger here to be President, who would it be?” Or, “If you had to switch genders with someone here, who would you switch with?” And the ever popular, “If someone was pointing a gun to your head and you absolutely had to make-out with somebody in the parking lot right now and nobody would ever know, who would you pick?” But we forgot one vital drinking rule: Never eat a full meal before a night of excessive boozing if you are hoping for drunken foolery! What amateurs! And so we were shamed into sobriety for the rest of the evening. A couple days later, non-alcohol involving work took me into Paia in the late afternoon. So naturally, when I was done, I stopped at the SandBar for a cocktail. You know, I hate to be predictable but I also hate being sober on a perfectly decent pau hana Friday with money burning a hole in my pocket and those damn Paia bartenders luring me in like sirens with their blasted margarita specials and happy hour libations. And then like a blur, prolific band du jour The Easy played, followed by the John Moore Project, maybe some flirting on my part and definitely some testosteronefueled mayhem on somebody else’s, Reeny saved me from certain death, Billy lost his shoe, and then I think Ken and I hightailed it down to Jacque’s, which was packed but the doorman let me in because my name was not Anthony Pignataro. On Saturday after a full day of recovery by means of thrift store shopping therapy, my Wailuku buddies and I prepared to attend a Superheroes & Villains party at Mulligan’s in Wailea. Once I suited up in my Kill Bill 2 evil nurse dress and blonde wig with eye patch, BJ opened the door in an outfit we would later call “Evil Warrior Hooker Prom Queen of the Damned.” And she looked good, too. But that wasn’t what distracted me, for behind her was a blue-tights-wearing, yellow satin cape flying, black Batman-masked man soaring across my backyard being chased by two poodles.
