Nice article on youngsters going off to war (“Children’s Crusade,” Jan. 12, 2006). Ted Rall is right on. But the reasons you think we should not be sending teenagers to war is exactly why armies throughout the ages have recruited this age group. They are physically fit, impressionable and can be quickly made to behave in any way necessary. Surely you have read about the diabolical rebel groups scattered throughout Africa that use children to be trained killers. Anyway, guys our age would question everything and drive a platoon leader nuts. I was also engaged reading the local newspaper and talking to the island citizens. Seems growth is a big problem on Maui. Here’s a take along the grass-isgreener perspective—compare Maui’s situation to Cleveland, Ohio and I think you’ll find that growth is a nice problem to have. Try the opposite of growth and see how that works. Many people had issues with the almostdead sugar cane industry. Before the mainland used cane for sugar, the main source for sweetener was maple syrup. The Hawaiian sugar cane industry killed the maple syrup industry in Ohio and many other cold-weather states. Beautiful island... and great fish taco stands! -Sweldon Bitterman, via email

OPPOSES INCINERATORS The incinerator idea that is being proposed is a terrible idea, especially the one that suggests bringing in trash from other islands (“Trash Talk,” Oct. 13, 2006). Ridiculous! The whole idea promotes a wasteful lifestyle. Most of the stuff that will be burned is recyclable! We need to spend the money on better recycling programs and recycling education, and not on awfully expensive equipment that demands we make more waste! This is a very bad idea and the future generations are going to be burdened with this decision if we go through with it.

Please, no incinerators! More Recycling! -Angie Hofmann, via email

SUPPORTS OWN CAMPAIGN I can’t keep track of all the people who have taken the time to let me know about the wonderful article you wrote about me in your paper (Coconut Wireless, Jan. 26, 2006). Thank you so very much. I am working hard, busy organizing and doing a campaign plan and taking nothing for granted as I have seen too many candidates assume victory and wake up the morning after to a shock! Our campaign’s goal is to win with integrity, honesty, and hard work so we can help make Maui County the best island in the world not only for visitors, but also for all of us who live here. I appreciate your generous comments and I will always take the position I aspire to very seriously. Best of luck and keep your fascinating news coming! May I humbly ask for your votes for me, too? -Gladys Baisa, Upcountry County Council candidate

Playing Soldier

Three Glasses

Embedded reporters endanger their ideals and peers


The closest thing to security you get in war Anchorman Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt are the latest casualties of a most dangerous trend: journalists playing soldier. The two ABC News staffers, riding along with collaborationist Iraqi troops in a U.S. military convoy, were struck in the head by flying shrapnel from a bomb detonated by the resistance near Taji, about 25 miles northwest of Baghdad. “The Pentagon takes every opportunity to say, ‘If you’re worried about security, travel embedded with us,’ Ann Cooper, director of the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), told The Washington Post. But embedding isn’t just a threat to journalistic objectivity. It’s the most foolhardy way to cover a war, and it ought to be prohibited. To be sure, “independent” war correspondents—reporters who hire private drivers and translators to get around— take significant risks too. Christian Science Monitor freelancer Jill Carroll,

kidnapped by an Iraqi insurgent group on January 7, is still missing. But CNN reporter Michael Holmes points out the common-sense calculus of independent versus embedded reporting. “Personally I feel probably more nervous if I’m driving along in a Humvee, armored or not, because a U.S. convoy or a military convoy of any kind in this country is such a target,” he says. Living with local families and hiring drivers of rundown cars minimizes attracting the wrong kind of attention. The embedding program, in which the Pentagon assigns reporters to travel and live with a specific unit, began as an attempt to improve relations with the media after the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, which I covered for The Village Voice and Los Angeles’ KFI radio. Reporters covering the Afghan war, targeted by robbers, murderers and American warplanes alike, also had to contend with a Defense Department directive prohibiting U.S. and allied forces from providing any kind of

help, including medevacs, to journalists. As U.S. troops manning the locked gates of Bagram airbase laughed at their plight, two American reporters hunkered down in their car during a fierce night-long small arms and mortar attack by Taliban forces. Reporters mindful of such incidents jumped at the chance to travel in armored vehicles after embedding was announced for the Iraq War. They might not have been so quick to don Kevlar had they looked closer at some of the first journalist casualties in Afghanistan. Johanne Sutton of Radio France Internationale, Pierre Billaud of the French radio network RTL and Volker Handloik, a German freelancer for Stern magazine got themselves killed in northern Afghanistan on Nov. 11, 2001 by embedding themselves with U.S.-backed Northern Alliance troops. “On Saturday the Northern Alliance took the first line of trenches on Chaghatai ridge after prolonged shelling and U.S. aerial bombardment,” recalled witness Terry McCarthy for Time magazine. “Just as the sun was setting the tank commander, General Bashir, judged that the Taliban had all cleared out and said he was going forward in an armored personnel carrier to examine the trench lines. About half a dozen journalists asked if they could go.” “All three of us were on the back of the APC and we were joking about dragging along our interpreter, who was a bit reluctant about it,” Veronique Rebeyrotte of France Culture, who survived the subsequent tragedy, told the BBC. “We were in a hurry to get into the Taliban zone, to see what was happening on the other side. We never thought we would be taking a risk.” They drove straight into an ambush. Sutton managed to stay aboard the APC despite being shot. The French and German men fell off and were left behind in a chaotic retreat. Taliban soldiers stripped and robbed their bodies, then desecrated and scattered them across the embankment. As far as the attackers were concerned, the reporters were no different than the soldiers. In 2004, at least 36 reporters have since been kidnapped, five of whom were executed. CPJ’s Cooper says, “War correspondents do tell us that increasingly, this neutralobserver status is not recognized by parties in some of these conflicts.” What neutral-observer status? Journalists who trade their objectivity for protection find neither. At least 61 journalists have been killed so far—many by American forces. Iraq remains, for the third straight year, the most dangerous nation in the world for reporters. MTW

“If they get me on this one I’m going to have to close down,” Steven Burgelin, general manager of Casanova, told me. It was about 6 p.m. on Feb. 2, and the Maui County Liquor Control Adjudication Board had just gone into deliberation. They’d been dealing with Casanova—up on two separate cases involving alleged over-service—since noon. Burgelin was just joking, but not by much. That afternoon the board found the popular Makawao restaurant and nightclub (and Maui Time advertiser) guilty of serving alcohol to an intoxicated patron and of failing to exercise “due care” involving that patron. The fines for that conviction totaled $2,500 and constituted the club’s “first strike” for over-service in 16 years of business. Even deputy prosecuting attorney Andrew Martin admitted to the board that all his evidence in that case was circumstantial—a guy said he went to Casanova one night after drinking “at least” a dozen Heinekens at an Iao Valley barbecue, then attacked a cop outside after he left that night. Even though Martin provided no direct evidence that the guy was drunk at the moment Casanova served him two Long Island Iced Teas, the board handed down two guilty verdicts (though they did throw out a count alleging that Casanova “knowingly permitted” an intoxicated patron to remain in the premises). The case that concerned Burgelin now was different. On the same night as the first case, a woman had gone to Casanova, drank three glasses of red wine in three hours— got cut off by bar staff when a guy tried to buy her a fourth glass—then hit a building while trying to drive out of the parking lot across the street. That’s right: three glasses in three hours. No one, including LC investigators and prosecutor Martin, disputed that. “Nobody gets drunk after three glasses of wine,” Burgelin told the board. “Nobody!… Three glasses of wine in three hours does not make anyone intoxicated. That’s a fact.” It’s unclear whether the board accepted Burgelin’s assertion. Their decision—the complete opposite of the previous case— found Casanova not guilty of serving an intoxicated patron and of failing to exercise due care, but nailed them on knowingly permitting a drunk customer to remain inside.

WEDNESDAY, FEB. 1 So I open up my edition of The Maui News this morning and see a giant photo of the gray haired, pale heads of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert looking like a pawn shop sign. Was that State of the Union thing last night? Amazing how time flies when you’re both scared and infuriated at the federal government. But seriously, do people even still listen to these speeches? Anyway, His Imperial Majesty apparently decreed last night that “we can’t be isolationists,” as though our only options are to conquer countries that don’t agree with us or, as he so wonderfully put it, “surrender to evil.” He also said we’re “addicted to oil” but rejected calls to end the war in Iraq, as though they’re completely unrelated issues. Even Democrats are saying it’s great that he’s saying we need to get started on alternative energy, but no one did back-flips when Jimmy Carter asked for that 30 years ago. Look, Bush says a lot of things. Remember that big mission to Mars we were supposed to start spending billions on? Hell, remember how last year he said he was going to “save” Social Security? Back in 2002, the swine even said “every” wiretap undertaken by the National Security Agency has the backing of a legal warrant. But hey, presidents lie. Bill Clinton lied about getting a blowjob from an intern, George W. Bush lies about destroying our civil liberties and legal protections. Same thing, right? Anyway, he did make it all the way through a speech without using made-up words, so I guess there’s cause for celebration after all.

THURSDAY, FEB. 2 So people are apparently ecstatic that our beloved state government is doing something about all the homeless people who live—or try to—in this great state

Given the story we eventually ran, they were obviously less successful than they’d hoped.

SUNDAY, FEB. 5 Spent the afternoon flipping channels between Superbowl XL and the 1994 Alec Baldwin movie The Shadow. Both were equally entertaining.

MONDAY, FEB. 6 Hey, how come the state government’s looking at a $570 million surplus next year, but today’s Honolulu Advertiser has a story about how more than half of the public schools throughout the state are going to have to fire their librarians to save money? Given how government typically handles surplusses, you’d think they’d sack all the librarians.

TUESDAY, FEB. 7 FRIDAY, FEB. 3 Bad, bad news for Congressman Ed Case (D, Hawai’i) and his campaign to unseat incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka: according to today’s Honolulu StarBulletin, hugely popular/liberal U.S. Senator Barak Obama (D, Illinois) has thrown his support behind his Senate colleague. Or rather, his spokesman has. “He [Obama] told him [Case] he [Obama again, I think] supports Sen. Akaka completely,” Obama aide Tommy Vietor told the Star-Bulletin. Case responded to the paper by calling the U.S. Senate “a club” in which the members “support each other in primaries.” Shocking—good thing the Democratic Party isn’t like that.

SATURDAY, FEB. 4 After nearly three years, a U.S. District Court judge has finally decided to toss out a wrongful death lawsuit against the County of Maui over the matter of the late Richard Gregory. To recap: while struggling with three police officers on the night of Dec. 2, 2002, Pukalani resident Gregory suffered a heart attack and died. Seven months later, his family sued the county, alleging that officers Edwin Among, Garett Tihada and Nicholas Angell used excessive force in trying to arrest Gregory. Judge Samuel P. King didn’t buy it. “In granting judgment for the County and its police officers, Judge King found that ‘the Officers’ behavior

[was]… reasonable in the situation they confronted,’” a county press release trumpeted yesterday. Funny thing, though—while that release had no problem naming the three involved officers, county officials freaked out when I reported the very same names in my Apr. 15, 2004 story “Was Rick Gregory Really a Danger?” Apparently, the county doesn’t think people should know which police officers are suspected of using excessive force, so its attorneys tried to black out all the names on the hundreds of pages of police reports I obtained from them.

Oh, and the Advertiser is reporting today that the state House of Representatives missed payday last Friday for 224 workers there who started last month. Yes, yes, I know there were last minute delays getting the budget approved and all that, but somehow the state Senate made payroll for its clerks and aides. But hey, budgets are mysterious things. Look at the $2.77 trillion monster Bush just proposed—that he can still call himself a “conservative” when lobbing around numbers like that amazes me. Bush says his “budget” will saddle the country with a $201 billion deficit in 2009. Must I point out that in 2001, when Bill Clinton left office, the federal government was running a budget surplus? You people already know that, right? You remember back five years? I thought so. Anthony Pignataro’s latest film, a romantic comedy tentatively titled Romantic Comedy, is due out this spring. MTW

of ours. “The governor and legislators have heard the cry of the people,” homeless advocate Reverend Bob Nakata told the Honolulu Advertiser today about bills enjoying bipartisan support that would build 10,000 to 15,000 affordable homes over the next five years and greatly expand the number of homeless shelters throughout the islands. “I’m flabbergasted.” Yeah, this certainly does seem shocking, until you remember that our Governor Linda Lingle and the state Legislature is up for reelection this year. That makes this one of those time-to-get-stuff-done years. Flabbergasted that they’re suddenly paying all this attention to people who don’t vote or buy expensive luxuries like high-definition TV sets, black marble bathroom tiles or 87 Octane? No, but I will be if they actually go ahead and build all those affordable homes and shelters.

Monsanto Hawai’i drops another notch on news that state Representative Mele Carrol (D, 13th District) has introduced or co-sponsored four anti-genetically modified organism bills: a 10-year moratorium on GMO coffee and taro; a requirement that all GMO growers and testers get certified by the state Department of Health; a prohibition on the sale of unlabeled GMO fish and shellfish; and the establishment of a commission that would design a “regulatory framework” around GMOs. Oh, and this week marks the debut of Wailuku Agribusiness on the big board, replacing A&B’s subsidiary Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar.

Katie’s Pet Depot in La Verne, Calif., is one of the few grooming salons in the country for rats, according to an October Associated Press report. A special $10 treatment includes lustrous-coat shampooing, claw-clipping and flea and mite treatment, and employee Karri Garrison said the claw-clipping is the hardest: “They have very small feet.”

China’s Xinhua news agency reported in October that Ai Ai, the veteran chimp at the safari park in Shaanxi province, who is 27 years old and who started smoking cigarette butts at age 11 when her first mate died, has finally kicked her nicotine habit. Zoo officials attributed her success to distractions such as exercise, music (via a Walkman “borrowed” from a keeper), and better food, such as fried dishes and dumplings.

(She had won one of the lottery-awarded permits and then aced the safety test.) And according to a Seattle Post-Intelligencer profile in January, Aidan Gold, age 8, of Bothell, Wash., recently climbed a 20,300-foot peak on Mount Everest in the Himalayas with his dad, adding to his previous climbs in the Cascades and the Alps. Aidan said the last part of the Everest climb (a 45degree stretch of rock and ice) was “the (hardest) 3,000 feet I’ve ever done.”

Selina Valdez, 28, was arrested in January and her suspected partner, Daniel Marquez, 41, was sought by police, on counterfeiting charges in Pueblo, Colo., after police walked into their foul-smelling home. No hoarded animals were present, but according to police, about a week before the arrest, officers had called on the couple, which had then hurriedly flushed the bogus bills down the toilet. After questioning them, police left, but the toilet clogged, and since then, the couple have been relieving themselves into plastic bags that police found strewn about the home.

Jessica Sandy Booth, 18, was arrested in December in Memphis, Tenn., and charged with hiring a hit man to help her kill four people so she could steal a brick of what turned out to be queso fresco cheese. According to police, Booth had seen the large block of crumbly, white, Mexican-cuisine cheese on a table at an acquaintance’s home, thought it was a big pile of cocaine, and devised an elaborate plot to return later, steal it, and kill anyone in the house old enough to testify against her.

What Governor Linda Lingle said in her Jan. 23, 2006 State of the State Address: “We strengthened our ties to Asia. Our delegation to China and Korea returned with significant agreements covering education and economic development. The businesses that went on the trip already expect to generate more than $100 million in new business.”

What she didn’t say: Those businesses—DFS Hawaii, Ko Olina Resort & Marina, Castle & Cooke, Dole Foods and NCL America— didn’t just go on Lingle’s recent trip to China: they paid for them, according to the Feb. 1, 2006 Honolulu Advertiser. The paper also found out that Ted Liu, Lingle’s economic aide, told at least one company wishing to contribute to a future overseas trip that becoming a “title sponsor” would earn the company special access to VIPs and government leaders. Even Republican state Senate Minority Leader Fred Hemming told the Advertiser that, “There shouldn’t be pay-to-play. I think the wrong impression was left by Ted Liu’s letter.” -Anthony Pignataro

What it’s like to go on the reality TV show The five girls are lined up in front of a waterfall. They’re all wearing shorts or skirts, matched with a different colored top. A couple look like local girls, others clearly haole. A few are smiling widely and giggling. One tall blonde wearing high heels and a floppy, wide-brimmed hat begins posing like a fashion model. “We just have to switch the green girl to a white shirt and we’d have the Reservoir Dogs cover,” says one of the cameramen. Off to the side, show producers Alex Duda and Jill Mullikan-Bates congratulate themselves over the lineup. “They’re cute!” they say to each other more than once. “She’s a sophisticate,” they say about Angie—the one in the hat. Janice— the girl in the turquoise blouse—is “spunky.” And so on. The director yells “Action,” and the girls walk shoulder to shoulder for about 30 feet, towards a video camera held very close to the ground. They’re done in a few moments. “Tell them to show some attitude!” MullikanBates yells at Chris Lamson, the director. The girls dutifully head back to the waterfall, turn around and do it again. “This is the weirdest part,” Duda tells me. “For the show they’re supposed to forget the cameras are there, but here they have to play to it.” The fourth take seems to go well, with Duda and Mullikan-Bates happy at the “attitude” the girls are showing. But Lamson asks the girls for one more take.

“One more time, ladies,” he says. “Camera trouble. Welcome to television.” Reality television, to be precise. In midDecember, 2005, the crew of elimiDATE, which bills itself as “America’s Number One Dating Show,” filmed five episodes at the Ka’anapali Beach resorts. Using Maui residents recruited at various nightclubs throughout the island, the shows will air during television’s all-important May Sweeps month, when ratings are tabulated. ElimiDATE, for those who haven’t stayed up until 1 a.m. to watch the program when it airs in Hawai’i on KITV Channel 4, is one of the last

By Anthony Pignataro dating reality shows still in syndication. In contrast to Blind Date, in which host Roger Lodge cracks wise as cameras film a couple going on a first date, elimiDATE is a host-less look at the conflict and confusion usually attractive people go through when deciding who to date. A typical half-hour episode revolves around three guys or girls and a “picker” of the opposite sex. The show will include a mix of interviews, on-camera conversations and footage of activities like dancing, snorkeling, skydiving and—always, always—a jump in the hot tub. Nothing says Great Television better than shirtless studs and bikini hotties flirting in a hot tub. Anyway, after each activity—and a commercial break—the picker will “cut” a member

of the group. This goes on until at the end when he or she is left with, given the show’s limited choices, the best possible date. “A lot of these kids are young,” says Duda, the show’s creator and executive producer. “[But] we’ve had people 60-plus years old. Those people are looking for something. Sometimes [participants] date for a week. We just try to make it funny.”

On Saturday, Dec. 17, 2005, Duda, Mullikan-Bates and the rest of the crew filmed a two-part episode—Show Number 5135—at the Westin Resort in Ka’anapali. Camera crews and participants scattered throughout the resort, but everything was more or less being controlled from the hotel’s Ka’anapali Boardroom, which the producers had dubbed “Base Camp.” Allowed to watch the filming until the “first cut,” I arrive at 10 a.m. The small room is crammed with production assistants, audio/video equipment, a guy checking “pre-interview” video for distortion or audio problems and coolers filled with water, Red Bull, soda, beef jerky, snacks. Sitting at the far wall silently eating crackers is a pretty brunette wearing a beige top and short white skirt. Named Tiffany, she’s eating crackers because she’s apparently suffering from eating bad shellfish the night before. After a while a female production assistant named Alex (the fact that the crew contained two women named Alex didn’t seem to cause

much consternation, at least for the few hours I was there) stops by and gives Tiffany some Pepto-Bismol. A few yards down the hall, Duda and Mullikin-Bates, the show’s senior supervising producer, are relaxing on some stone steps, watching sunburned tourists walk past an elaborate pool. Arguably the program’s two most powerful crewmembers, they don’t seem to have anything to do at the moment. “Did you know Vince Neil is sitting at the bar?” Mullikin-Bates asks me shortly after I arrive. “You can’t miss him—he’s the one with all the tattoos.” I ask them what they look for when recruiting guys and girls to come on the show. “Universally appealing guys,” they say—charismatic, smart, likeable guys with the personality to “drive the date” and “get the girls to open up.” As far as girls are concerned, “more than anything we look for personalities,” says Duda. “We want a mosaic of personalities. We don’t want four cheerleaders. It helps if they’re attractive but it’s not the only criteria.” I tell them that I know Dan, a Lahaina surf instructor recruited to be a picker for the day’s episode. “Tan Dan?” they say. Then they tell me that Dan’s in for a surprise: while he’s been told he’ll be the picker choosing from five girls, another guy named Ken has been told exactly the same thing. Neither Dan nor Ken will find out until they’re introduced to the girls, who incidentally know they’ll all be on a group date

with two guys. Dan and Ken will have to decide amongst themselves which girls to cut. ElimiDATE shot episodes on Maui five years ago, but this is the first time they’ll be using local residents on the show. Duda and MullikinBates tell me they’re planning on filming the five girls and two guys using the Westin’s waterslide, then perhaps playing Frisbee or volleyball on the beach. Finding suitable activities for show participants has always been a challenge. Duda and Mullikin-Bates say a previous episode in which the participants went skydiving was problematic—“They just jumped out of a plane together and now they have to cut someone,” says Duda. “We’re in the fifth season now. We’re trying to shake it up a bit.” Filming in Phoenix, they organized a “Mr. Phoenix Pageant” for one show. They’re also planning an arc of shows called “Geek Week,” says Mullikin-Bates. “All the guy pickers are, you know, nerds,” she says. “It’s fulfilling a fantasy.” “It’s a public service,” jokes Duda. “We’re love brokers,” jokes M-B. “Our themes come out of our people,” says Duda. “When the guy said he didn’t go to his prom, we said, ‘Let’s do that…’ It’s so cast-driven. “We had one picker, he was so cute,” she continues. “I don’t know what was up, but halfway through he said he didn’t want to go on. Girls were putting suntan lotion on him, and he got uncomfortable and walked off—I know! The girls followed him. He went into the men’s room, and they were telling him, ‘Please come back.’ He runs and scales a 10-foot fence. We’d only shot one round. So we all went to a bar and found another guy. If something goes wrong, you turn it into television.”

A few minutes later show director Chris Lamson stops by the stairwell to tell Duda and Mullikin-Bates about Ken, a construction worker who moved to Maui from Pittsburgh two months earlier, who’ll serve as the other picker for the day’s show. “He’s very excited to be on the show,” says Lamson. “He thinks all of his dreams are coming true.” They all laugh. Then Lamson says they’re getting ready to film the “B-roll” (non-audio) footage of the girls at the waterfall, then walks off, leaving the three of us with still nothing to do at the stairwell. Duda and Mullikin-Bates tell me repeatedly that usual production delays never take this long, but where television shows are concerned, standing around and waiting is often the order of the day. Duda, an Emmy-winning producer who helped create E! Network’s Talk Soup and Wild On programs, says she came up with the original elimiDATE idea five years ago while trying to figure out why a cheerleader she knew in high school was so popular with the guys. “Every guy wanted her,” she says. “She had a power none of us could understand. She had good hair, but she was just a normal girl.” Eventually we all get the word that they’re ready to shoot what will eventually be five takes of the show’s brief intro at the waterfall. I’m surprised to see Tiffany taking part,





but she seems fine. Later, back near the staircase where I first met Duda and Mullikin-Bates, Lamson has the girls line up for the all-important scenes where Dan and Ken meet the girls. A few yards off to one side, Dan is standing with Steve, his personal assistant for the day. Steve has him standing with his back to the girls. “Okay, you want to know what’s really going to happen?” Steve asks Dan, who’s wearing jeans and a t-shirt. “We’ve matched you up with five post-op transsexuals.” As Dan stands there laughing at Steve’s joke, throngs of hotel guests stand around watching Ken—clad in a black tank, black shorts, sneakers and beanie—gets introduced on camera to the five girls. After a few moments, Steve tells Dan it’s time for him to meet the girls. Dan walks over, immediately notices Ken, and goes through the introduction motions. Duda and Mullikin-Bates, standing behind the cameras, are fascinated as the two guys— Dan the local “player” and Ken the recent transplant—awkwardly but politely take measure of each other. After a few minutes Lamson has enough footage of seven beautiful people eyeballing each other and wraps the scene. It’s time to head to head to the swimming pool to prepare for the big waterslide scene—Lamson says the five girls and two guys will all ride down the waterslide, then the two guys will swim off to the side and “make the cut.” Walking along the edge of the pool, one guest looks up at Ken. “That’s a big guy,” he says. While waiting for the crew to get situated not far from the slide, someone hands Dan a release form to sign in case he’s injured going down the waterslide—an activity hundreds of Westin guests partake in every day. “This is hilarious,” says Dan as a Maui County lifeguard tasked to follow the elimiDATE casts and crew throughout their island adventure looks on. Lamson walks over and asks him how he feels about having to compete with a second picker. “He’s a big guy,” Dan says more than once. “You don’t have to fight him,” says Lamson.

The next scene is crucial. It shouldn’t take much more than a couple minutes of airtime, but it will show the five girls and two guys getting to know each other, as well as establish each participant’s personalities for the viewers at home. With hotel guests kept away by production assistants— most of which live locally and only worked for the show the week it shot on Maui—Lamson asks the cast to sit on lounge chairs in a U, with the guys at the base and girls on either side. As they sit down, Dan guides participant Jamie in, holding her hand lightly. “He’s already working it!” Duda tells me happily. The cameras start rolling. In a stilted, queasy way, the participants both try to get to know each other and try to show off for the TV audience at home. “What did they feed you?” Dan asks of Ken. A few moments later, when he describes himself as “kind of a player,” the producers smile brightly.





“They’re so cute,” says Duda. “I love how different they are.” The conversation is wild and uneven. “We can buy a pig and cook it in the ground,” says Ken. “I’ve seen ‘em do it.” They talk about where they came from. At one point they mention Vegas. “The only machine I won in Vegas was the ATM machine,” jokes Ken. Lamson stops filming. The participants are talking easily enough now, but it’s not going anywhere. The producers tell the girls and pickers to think of what they really want to say because they’re running out of time. “Sometimes the prettiest girl is cut in Round One and you can’t believe it,” Duda tells me. “It’s because she didn’t say anything. People forget that it’s a game and they just get into a conversation.” They start filming again. Jamie, who’s leaning into the group in a way that shows off the substantial tattoo she has on her shoulder, says she’d like to have a few drinks before doing anything. That prompts Tiffany, who’d

who drops her shorts. As the participants are stripping on camera, Tiffany suddenly blurts out that she’s not going on the waterslide. The rest of the cast asks why, but she steadfastly insists she’s not going in the water. Lamson tells the camera operators to stop filming. A crowd of producers and assistants gather around Tiffany, asking why she doesn’t want to go down the slide. The rest of the cast stands around for a while. One camera operator heads to the pool, where he’ll get in the water and film the guys and girls as they finish their ride down the slide. Finally everyone agrees that Tiffany will just wait for the rest of the group at the edge of the pool. The afternoon sun starts burning, so Duda, Mullikin-Bates and I sip ice water at a poolside bar while the rest of the cast and crew get situated. Finally it’s time to film the cast members slide into the pool. The lifeguard positions himself near the slide’s end, and they all start sliding down. As they gather at the bottom,

As the participants are stripping on camera, Tiffany suddenly blurts out that she’s not going on the waterslide. The rest of the cast asks why, but she steadfastly insists she’s not going in the water. been mostly silent, to ask why she needs to do that. Somehow they end up joking about partying naked. “People know me as ‘the entertainment,’” says Amanda. Lamson starts interrupting, yelling out for this person or that person to say why they’re attractive. “I’m trying to set up the cut,” he tells Duda. “It’s hard because they’re such a big group,” Duda tells me. This goes on and on. I begin wondering how much of this will end up in the episode. Lamson yells “Cut” and production assistants remove everyone’s microphone. Using boom mikes, they’ll now film the transition between the conversation and the waterslide—in other words, the part where the guys and girls strip on camera down to their swimsuits. After Lamson tells everyone what they have to do and yells “Action,” someone says they want to jump in the water. Dan plays off that by saying he saw a waterslide nearby. Ken heartily agrees, says that they should all go, then he gets up and walks away from the group. Lamson stops filming. They’re not set up to film the group walk away, and he repeats that he wants them to mention the waterslide, then get up and strip off their clothes. That’s it. The cameras start rolling again. This time Jamie says they should go, then takes off her shirt. The rest strip, but Jamie is the only girl




the producers tell them to swim over to yet another nearby waterfall. The guys and girls— minus Tiffany—happily frolic under the pouring chlorinated water. The producers go crazy over the shot, but the noise of the water makes it impossible to film. They talk about transferring the group to another, quieter pool and pretending it’s the same pool. Someone asks whether the Westin will just turn off the waterfall. As everyone darts around trying to figure out how to film the sequence where Dan and Ken cut the first girl, Mullikin-Bates comes up to me. “Who do you think they’re going to cut?” she asks me. “Tiffany,” I say without hesitation. “She didn’t go down the slide. She doesn’t want to continue.” Mullikin-Bates nods. But I’m wrong: Tiffany cuts herself, saying she doesn’t feel good after eating bad shellfish the night before. “It would have been nice to get a conference [between Dan and Ken],” Duda says after hearing the news. “We’ve had shows where both girls cut themselves at the end. You shoot 700 of these things, everything happens. [Tiffany] says she’s not feeling well, so that’s okay.” The scene of Tiffany cutting herself is simple: with the rest of the cast floating in the pool, she walks to the edge, tells them she’s just not into it anymore and walks off. Lamson manages to film the scene in just two takes. MTW

FEBRUARY 9, 2006


I’ve always thought of eating as a sensual experience. That scene in 9 1/2 Weeks with Mickey Rourke feeding jalapeno peppers to a blindfolded Kim Basinger on the kitchen floor? That’s my kind of meal. I’m also fascinated by the idea of aphrodisiacs, or food purported to elicit sexual desire. But science—fuddy-duddy party-pooper that it is— pretty much killed that notion by exposing the truth behind such aphrodisiacal folly as “Spanish Fly” and powdered rhino horn. Cold reasonists conclude that it’s all in our heads. But isn’t that where sex starts? Other alleged aphrodisiacs: chocolate, asparagus, basil, chiles, coffee, strawberries, grapes, peaches, bananas, honey, cucumbers, artichoke, black beans, oysters, rosemary, edible flowers, pine nuts, avocado, libations, figs, a quail egg in your beer and unbelievably, onions.

WHERE TO GET IT If it’s likely you’ll be dining out this Valentine’s Day, keep your eye out for dishes that will contribute favorably to the rest of your evening. Although with the right company, any meal can be provocative: Mexican food will heat you up, Asian fare and Spanish tapas warrant sharing, fresh seafood leaves you energized and Italian cuisine is generally accompanied by romantic background music. And if it’s romantic ambience you’re looking for, a beachside table at Pacific’O (505 Front St., Lahaina, 667-4341) is where you might want to share a plate of Shiso Spicey Tuna ($14)—fresh sashimi ahi seared rare and served with the also aptly named Miso Honey Sauce. Or venture up to the nook of Hali’imaile General Store (900 Hali’imaile Rd., 572-2666) and make googoo-eyes at each other over a Brie and Grape Quesadilla ($9) with basil pesto and sweet pea guacamole. Single people deserve love too, and we

can get it in the form of Roy’s (4405 Honoapiilani Hwy., Kahana, 669-6999; or 303 Pi’ikea Ave., Kihei, 891-1120) stupendous Chocolate Souffle ($9), while sipping on a delish Espresso Martini or glass of wine at the bar and served by perpetually charming bartenders. Other romantic eateries: Café des Amis (Paia), Vino (Kapalua), Café o’Lei (Kihei), Hula Grill (Ka’anapali), Casanova (Makawao), Sarento’s (Kihei), Lahaina Grill rooftop, Mama’s Fish House (Kuau), Ferraro’s (Four Seasons Wailea), Manana Garage (Kahului), A Saigon Café (Wailuku), Gerard’s (Lahaina) and your house.

GETTING IT AT HOME However, if your idea of a romantic evening is one spent in bed, nothin’ says lovin’ like a little body butter for dessert. At the Love Shack (Kihei Kalama Village, 875-0303), you’ll also find Chocolate Fantasy Body Topping ($14.95) or Kama Sutra Honey Dust ($27.95). Lahaina Lingerie (129 Lahainaluna Rd., 661-3117) stocks your edible thongs and undies, and passionfruit flavored massage oil, all reasonably priced between $5 and $10. Or if you’re more into flavored lubes, Paradise Spice (1010 Lower Main St., Wailuku, 249-2449) has a large section devoted to ‘em, as well as Aphrodisiac Oils ($12.95) in Cherries Jubilee, Raspberry Sorbet and more. If you’d like to make a meal out of something other than your lover, I’ve also included a recipe below. Bon Apetit!

RECIPE FOR SEXCESS Honey-drenched Figs (from Intercourses, an aphrodisiac cookbook by Martha Hopkins and Randall Lockridge): “Grill eight figs over a low heat until heated through, turning occasionally. Warm 1/4 cup honey. Place the figs on individual serving plates, drizzle with enough honey to lightly coat figs, and top with two tablespoons finely chopped pecans. Warm, juicy, drippy, sticky. Ineffably decadent. Use only with experienced lovers.” MTW

Happy V-Day! Tuesday, 7 p.m. at McCoy Studio Theater, MACC room and there’s toilet paper stuck to her shoe, you stop her and help her. You DO NOT let her walk out of that restroom to cross a busy restaurant back to her table where her date is waiting so that she can feel mortified when she finally notices the two-ply on her stilettos. Not cool. In this spirit, I was delighted to find that we’ll be having V-Day—a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations, generating broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest and female genital mutilation. And it’s the perfect opportunity for us ladies to partake in the essence of sisterhood. As for you fellas—you can never learn too much when it comes to us chicks so put on your learning cap and embrace the V—Day, that is. Tickets: $25. Call 242-7469. [HEIDI KING]

[STAGE] Name a four-letter word for “snatch.” Okay, the joke is that you say “cunt” and the correct answer is “grab” but in this case, we’re gonna go with the former. This reason I bring this up is this: I caught Eve Ensler’s play, The Vagina Monologues, on HBO a couple years back. Now, most people think that I’m… what’s the word? “Brazen,” perhaps. But honestly, I’m very shy. Specifically when it comes to sexuality. This discomfort is amplified when the subject matter becomes anatomical. So imagine my shock when the first thing I caught was Ensler reciting all the kinds of words used for female genitalia—you know, like punani, coochi snorcher and nappy dugout. I had to keep changing the channel and going back. I felt like it was something I should see. I have a theory—actually, I have a ton of theories but one of them is that women should maintain a sense of sisterhood for all other females. We’re battin’ for the same team here, y’know? For instance, if you see a chick about to walk out of the bath-

Marley Fest Spotlight: Inna Vision Sunday, 5 p.m. at A&B Amphitheater, MACC [REGGAE] What do you call a Hawaiian girl without a boyfriend? Brah-less. What do you call a surfer without a girlfriend? Homeless. What do you call six local braddahs playing straight old roots-styley music and makin’ it sound cherry? Inna Vision. This group of 20-somethings—Cody “Koko” Nemit (vocals), Curtis “Mr.83” Helm (vocals), David Bailey (drums), Jason Pokipala (guitar), Rojah Mon (Keyboard) and Koa Lopes (bass)—has only been together for about seven months but they’ve already played with Alpha Blondy and even opened for Midnite on their very first show. Nemit and Lopes had been jammin’ together for years until last summer, when they decided it was time to start a new project. So Lopes gathered up the rest of the fellas based on their raw talent as well as their passion for the music. According to him, “It’s conscious roots music. We have songs about love, everyone can relate to love. There are some militant style rebel songs as well, about life’s struggles.” Inna Vision doesn’t want to sound like anyone else, that’s why they manage themselves and play either their own originals or covers of old, old roots tunes that you won’t be hearing on the radio. But how do six people just cruise together, problem free? “It’s not for the fame. It’s not for the chicks. We’re all just here for the music. We all share the same vision. That’s why we’re Inna Vision”, says Koa. So what lies ahead for the band? They’d like to make it big enough to play at Reggae on the River. And this summer they’ll be making their CD of all original tracks straight from Lopes’ studio, Cultural Vision Maui. Until then, catch ‘em live at the Bob Marley fest this Sunday, at Unisan (March 10) or Lahaina Civic (April 1). And if you want a sample disc, they sometimes have them so you should definitely ask. Lopes’s been known to get one out of his own car stereo to hook a fan up. The second annual Marley Fest ’06, a celebration of the life and music of Bob Marley, is featuring Gregory Isaacs & the Live Wyya Band, Morgan Heritage, Ooklah the Moc, Inna Vision and more. Gates open at 4 p.m. Tickets: $26 advance, $31 day of show. Call 242-7469. [HEIDI KING]

Night to Remember Sunday, 6:30 p.m.-1:30 a.m. at Hapa’s in Kihei [MUSICAL FUNDRAISER] Now this is how you do a big fundraiser for the Maui Food Bank. The night starts at 6:30 with the Mercaba Fire Dancers, Salsa Dance by Jose Perez & Elian and African Dance by what the promoters are calling a “surprise guest.” Then Scott Huckabay performs. Then DJ Decka does his thing. DJ Durty and Chrystalline come on after 9. DJ Louie “The Mole” Morales closes out the night. Oh, and there’ll be live drumming and go-go dancers, too. Did I mention that Horhito’s will be providing food until 9? I know it’s asking a lot to go, but it’s for the Maui Food Bank. Admission to the entire show is just $10 or $5 and three canned food items. And please, bring good canned food—no stewed tomatoes or prunes or any of that nonsense you used to do in school. For more information call 879-9001. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

Sounds of Canada Wednesday, 7 p.m. at Mulligans on the Blue [MUSIC] I’ve never been to that great northern land where people say “aboot” and “eh?” But I have heard the tremolo and wail of the Canadian Common Loon. It’s a haunting, eerie sound that’s often described as “insane laughter.” So what exactly do four singer/songwriter chicks from Canada sound like? “We’re all about big voices, four-part harmony, great songs, dorky banter and big attitude,” says Erin Smith who, along with Janine Stoll, Melissa McClelland and Lisa Winn, comprise Ladybird Sideshow (pictured left). Right, so less eerie. Got it. Actually, the Ladybird Sideshow is a sort of smorgasbord of musical feminine wizardry: “Beautiful harmonies, heart-wrenching lullabies, driving rock tunes, cabaret oddities, countrytinged warbles, rippin’ funk, and everything in between,” states their website. Or as one fan put, “…the Ladybirds can really get inside the music of your life, no matter what you’re usually into. And once they’re there, you don’t ever want them too far away. I can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store.” Funny how anticipation translates so well in other languages. Even Canadian. For info, call 874-1131.

Dammit, I just bought this camera!

Seeing the Gore America’s obsession with violent turmoil is expelled The third installment in the crafty Final Destination franchise, once again under the guiding eye of director James Wong (co-writer and director on the first Final Destination), ups the stakes on its trademark Grand Guignol set pieces to give audiences a series of escalating gross-out thrills. In sticking to its well-established formula, the opening sequence—this time on a deadly rollercoaster ride during a grad night celebration—lays out an eye-popping series of fast action deaths that traumatize the teen survivors whose lives will be threatened for the duration of the movie.

1770 S. KIHEI RD.

Although perhaps not as hair-raising as the highway pile-up intro of the second Final Destination (directed by David Richard Ellis), the carnival-based catastrophe resonates with the sickening fear induced by amusement rides and sets a youthful tone for the subsequent violence to flourish. Death becomes a character with a mean sense of completion in a movie that, like a rollercoaster ride, includes lots of jolting twists and drops into an abyss of imminent destiny. Each of the three Final Destination movies has emphasized different aspects of death as a lurking hunter, hungry to take the lives of those who escaped his initial assault on their specific domain. The first movie took glee in exposing audiences to the idea of sudden death as a blind-siding menace that could strike with

less notice than a bolt of lightening. The device worked as a modern symptom of existential reality that favored surprise over suspense. The second film concentrated on the potential danger of everyday objects and this time milked the element of suspense for all it was worth. The effect was to leave audiences afraid to flick a light switch or a toaster for fear of the deadly chain reaction that they might unknowingly set into motion. Final Destination 3 favors a corporeal fascination with young bodies when fast-moving heavy metal objects slice, crush or splatter people to smithereens. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a satirical affinity for the flesh-burning properties of tanning machines that gets sufficiently explored in a death sequence involving two vain nubile girls with double digit IQs. Whether conscious or not on the part of the filmmakers, the gory logic follows Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable desire to rationalize the effects of such physical violence that its invisible soldiers are suffering in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Bush administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blatant censorship of media coverage of the wars has instigated a silent obsession for closure in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collective subconscious. A consequence of â&#x20AC;&#x153;embedded journalistsâ&#x20AC;? and a refusal to allow showing the flag-draped coffins of deceased American soldiers being returned to their home soil has left the country with a natural curiosity made morbid by censorship. A cast of relatively unknown actors fulfills the franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition of using disposable faces that can be nullified at any moment. The idea of disposability is one that scriptwriters Glen Morgan and James Wong explore with a ruthless satirical tone that directly addresses our collective preoccupation with death and fear. MTW

(HK) FIREWALL - (R) - Action, Thriller - Harrison Ford stars as the loving husband and father who just happens to work at a huge bank and is the software creator. Paul Bettany plays the villain that kidnaps Ford’s family in order to rob the bank. Although we’ve seen this formula before, this film looks like a good one. 100 min. (HK) PINK PANTHER - PG - Comedy - Steve Martin plays well-to-do Inspector Clouseau. The Pink Panther is an amazing diamond that has been stolen and the Inspector, through “unintentional” slapstick comedy and dumb luck, is trying to catch the culprit. Don’t forget about his hilarious accent. 92 min. (HK)

Now Showing ANNAPOLIS - (PG-13) - Drama - Ever see Richard Gere and Lou Gossett, Jr. in An Officer and a Gentleman? Cool, then you don’t have to see this rip-off, about a young bad boy (James Franco) who tries to find out if he measures up at the U.S. Naval Academy. 108 min. (Anthony Pignataro) BIG MOMMA’S HOUSE 2 - (PG13) - Comedy Martin Lawrence is back wearing the fat suit, once again needing to go deep undercover for the F.B.I. Isn’t it amazing how all a man needs to do is dress up like a woman in the movies, and all of a sudden he can run faster than a speeding bullet, leap over buildings in a single bound and kick just about anyone’s ass? Incredible. 99 min. (HK) BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN - (R) - Drama, Romance, Western - Two cowboys work together, then become friends... and more? See how they deal with the blind hatred of society over a span of like 20 years. 134 min. (HK) CAPOTE - (R) - Drama - The Hollywood version of the true story of writer Truman Capote. In 1959, a family was murdered in a small Kansas town. Capote was sent to write a piece for The New Yorker magazine and ended up getting more

ciously wicked. 145 min. (Samantha Campos) MUNICH - (R) - Set in the aftermath of the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics, story follows a secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and kill the 11 Palestinians suspected to have planned the Munich attack--and the personal toll this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it. 164 min. (KLW) NANNY MCPHEE - (PG) - Family, Comedy - Think ugly Mary Poppins, except with Emma Thompson in the lead role. Pretty routine stuff, really—nanny checks in, uses magic to tame naughty brats—but Thompson is also one of the screenwriters, so there might be something to it. Also stars Colin Firth. 88 min. (AP) THE NEW WORLD - PG13 - Adventure, Drama - One of the most famous romances of all time, John Smith and Pocahontas. I highly doubt Smith was as hot as Colin Farrell though. You all know the story, I just hope that it’s more historically correct than the Disney version. 150 min. (HK) SYRIANA - (R) - Thriller - George Clooney and Matt Damon star in this tense political thriller which unfolds against the backdrop of the global oil industry. From the filmmakers that brought us Traffic. 123 min. (HK) UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION - (R) - Action-Horror - This sequel to 2003’s Underworld promises to be, at the very least, loaded with lots of bloody-blockbustin’ action, and well, sexy, sultry eye candy—in that dark and tormented, wicked kind of way! Kate Beckinsale stars as the vampy-vixen Selene, the vampire heroine who realized in the prequel she was fighting against the wrong evil. But with hybrid Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) at her side, they battle against this ancient war between vampire and lycan (werewolf), in a romance as forbidden as the hybrid himself. Oh, the agony! The heartache! The torture of being a vam—I mean lyca—er...hmm. 106 min. (Tallia Monterroso) WHEN A STRANGER CALLS - PG13 - Horror, Thriller - Remake of the 1979 movie that spawned one of my favorite urban legends. A babysitter keeps getting creepy calls, repeatedly being asked if she’s checked the children. Normally I wouldn’t put any expectations on a horror movie with a piddly little PG13 rating, but this one actually looks pretty freaky. (HK)

Love & the Mix Tape A compilation of local artists’ favorite love songs Mix tapes tell your friends, relatives and that one guy you think is cute in third period gym who you are and how you feel about them. Of course, now we have CD’s, MP3’s, and iPOD playlists to satisfy our romantic musical yearnings. But nothing can replace the heart and soul we put into making a lo-fi mix tape. Anyway, here’s what some Maui musicians would put on theirs.

makes you feel like your heart is going to explode.

“Embraceable You” by Ella Fitzgerald Angela Benoit, vocalist of Benoit Jazz Works: So beautiful, so romantic. I made a tape with 11 love songs on it for my husband Phil (eight years ago for our 11th wedding anniversary) and that song was the first one I put on it. In fact, we recorded this song on our latest CD, A Man and a Woman.

“I’d Die Without You” by P.M. Dawn Marty Dread, Reggae Ambassador: There are so many memories associated with this one. Every time there’s been a deep connection with me and someone, this song shows up in some form—whether it’s at a bar or on TV. It’s that whole “without you, there’s no me” sentiment. It’s a bit idealistic, romantic—and it’s the song for me.

“Holding Back the Years” by Simply Red Elan Rae, percussionist: [singing] “I’ll keeeeep hooolding on…” I’m hopelessly, romantically depressed when I’m really in love. And I get emotionally bundled up—I’d probably put this song on a mix tape and it would have some misconstrued meaning but that’s just me. Anyway, this song makes me feel mushy inside.

“For All We Know” by Donny Hathaway Gene Argel, jazz vocalist/keyboardist: This song is so beautiful. To say it’s “soulful” is not good enough. The words are so touching. It’s about illusion and reality, or the idea that love is real for the moment and everything else is an illusion. Or I might pick a classical song, like [Samuel Barber’s] “Adagio for Strings”—it’s so powerful, so emotional, it just

“My My My” by Johnny Gill Kanoa, vocalist / guitarist / drummer / beatboxer of Gomega: This song’s about appreciating the person you love. It makes me feel blessed being a man loving women. It’s also about being intimate and telling them what you want—women like that. They don’t always like surprises, sometimes it’s sexier to tell them what you’re going to do, like, “it’s all for you.”

“Hey” by The Pixies Erin Smith, vocalist/guitarist: It’s kinda creepy but also a very sexy, couple-y kind of song. It’s dirty-sexy—Frank Black’s a bit esoteric and there’s this whole sort of motif of people being chained together—but it’s also just… pretty.

“Put It In Your Mouth” by NWA DJ Rainbow: I love the words. It’s all about licking it, sucking it, dipping it, tasting it—it’s hilarious. No, I haven’t put it on a mix tape yet but I’m gonna for Valentine’s Day. You’ve inspired me!

“Start All Over” by Voodoo Suns Anastasia Gilliam, vocalist of the Voodoo Suns: Can I pick one of my own songs? This is about a couple deciding to either give in to their differences or deciding to love each other and start over again. It’s on our CD, Songs from the Haleakala Kitchen. MTW

Your uncharacteristic navel-gazing is bound to raise a few eyebrows and even elicit some (possibly melodramatic) concern, but don’t let anyone shake you out of your supposed funk; it’s a necessary part of your process at the moment. You’ve got a lot to think about (or more accurately, feel about, since you already do way too much thinking). Let it happen; what’s transpiring outside of you can wait.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You’ve probably already noticed how your social life seems sort of tidal. Weeks of loneliness and isolation are frequently ended by a blizzard of phone calls and emails; your social calendar goes from bleak and empty to overflowingly overbooked in a flash. I can’t explain this phenomenon any better than you can. What, did these people forget you existed for a while? And why did they all remember at the same time? Whatever the reason—coincidence or cosmic timing—don’t question it too much (except for fun). When high tide soaks you up to your chin this week, just ride it.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) A surprising amount of what you blame on others (consciously or unconsciously) is actually your fault. You fulfill your own (often negative) expectations, either by subtly acting to make sure things play out the way you “want” them to, or by simply perceiving your situation so that it looks like what you anticipated. How do you overcome these habits of thought? First, you have to accurately identify them. This is the perfect week for that task. Convene your think tank—the ones who know you best. Have them help you identify the top five habits of mind that are keeping you from success, happiness or love. (By the way, be heartened, not offended, if they can rattle them off in the first two minutes; it means they love you.) Phase two? We’ll get to that next week.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) The year is 2020 and you’re about to have a child. Before you is a virtual menu of possibilities. How many variables will you choose to control? Will you ensure that your child is more likely to be healthy? How about determining its gender? What about hair, eye and skin color? Penis size? Temperament? Talent? You may find that once you get started, it’s difficult to stop. Where, after all, do you draw the line? This week’s choices, while perhaps not quite so loaded with far-reaching consequences, are similarly tempting and morally confusing. It may turn out that the fuzzy boundaries are too confusing—so be prepared to make an all-or-nothing decision. That might be your only real choice.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Media is currently undergoing a bottom-up transformation. Film studios, television producers and record companies are scrambling to figure out ways to keep their paychecks paid. There’s no doubt that these models are dinosaurs, waiting to die. I’m excited to see what new breeds will spring up (and survive) in their places. This week you’re also privy to a long overdue death—perhaps an attitude, relationship or obsolete/ineffective way of doing things. Don’t panic, like those executives scuttling to save their careers. They’re doomed but you’re not; whatever appears to fill the void is likely to benefit, not hurt, you.

For those clueless Hallmark devotees who insist on celebrating that lamest of holidays, Valentine’s, you’re best off doing it early this year, on Sunday night, while the moon’s still waxing, nearly full, and in that most luxury-loving and romantic of signs, Leo. Wait until that very arbitrary day, the 14th, and things are bound to feel a bit anticlimactic, despite all the cheesy decorations and other couples also going through the motions. If you really want to feel it, go with Sunday. If it’s as good as it ought to be, you can always stage an encore performance (of at least the sex) on Tuesday.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You suck with money. I’ve never met a Leo who could stick to a tight budget for any length of time. Your motto is basically: spend it when you have it and go without when you don’t. Somehow, you’ve managed to make this zany financial plan work so far—but not without pissing a few people off. Don’t worry—there’s no chance of cleaning up those messes this week so I’m not even going to advise you to try. All I’m urging, when you succumb to the powerful temptations of the moment, is to avoid aggravating anyone else. Don’t generate more mess. You can’t afford it.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You’re at the opposite end of the spectrum from those dreamy Pisceans who so attract and frustrate you. But sometimes, oddly, you sound almost alike. They make outrageously accurate predictions based on their own intuition and lucky guesses. You speak out from a place of deep realism and practicality. That your forecasts match up so often is something of a miracle—and evidence that there are many paths and methods to the same destinations. Try to remember—and respect—that this week, because your best allies are those whose beliefs, approaches and work ethics are in absolute contrast with yours, but whose eyes are on the same prize.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) The new Battlestar Galactica television series (now in its second season) has attracted millions of viewers, many of whom don’t usually like sci-fi. That’s because it’s done well on many levels. People are attracted to quality. In fact, if the quality is high enough, it almost doesn’t matter what the actual content is. Don’t spend so much time trying to figure out “the best” thing to put out there. Just do it really, really well. Your focus on figuring out just the right packaging for whatever you’re trying to market—be it an idea, a product, or yourself—is mostly a waste of time. Focus on what’s inside. Nail that, and you could wrap it in brown paper and it’d still fly off the shelves.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Some people just have an “it” factor. Others find them compelling for reasons they can’t articulate. Scorpios, statistically, are much more likely than other signs to possess this elusive quality. However, it’s not some multipurpose silver bullet that just always works. It makes people more likely to buy what you’re selling, true—but only if what you’re putting out there isn’t total crap. Don’t lean too hard on your charisma this week. If there are glaring flaws in what you’re about, your personal shine won’t be bright enough to obscure them, so don’t embarrass yourself by trying. Fix them, instead.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Sagittarians are often Jacks and Jills of all trades. That is, you’re good at many things but you’re not necessarily superlative at anything (at least, not until later in life). Consequently, many young Archers compensate by adopting gimmicks to attract attention. It’s hard, when you’re quietly competent all across the board, to achieve the flash factor that garners the kind of notice you crave, so of course I understand the temptation to adopt some kind of attention-grabbing device. But it’s truly unnecessary; there’s one thing that all Sags are brilliant at, and which never fails to rivet: radical honesty. Tell the truth, all the time. People will hang on your every word.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Patience is, indeed, one of your virtues but even you have limits. Sometimes things just take too damn long. There’s nothing you or I can do about that—we’re not in control of these situations. Things take as long as they take—and trying to rush them will just screw them up. It’s best that you accept that. But that’s no reason you can’t get what you want right now. You just need to pursue a different path. Call it a hobby or extracurricular activity. I call it the fast track to your dream. Try it. If you pursue it with the same zeal and, hopefully, a little more joy than your day job, you probably won’t need that day job a whole lot longer.

“A PERSON WHO ACTS AS HIS OWN ATTORNEY HAS A FOOL AS A CLIENT” Everyone’s heard this (although I couldn’t locate its author.) Sadly it’s often true as well for those intrepid business people who prepare their own returns. We know this because we always review the prior year returns of new clients, and it’s all too common for the inexperienced to make mistakes - including missing large tax breaks. If you’re preparing your own returns, it might pay to at least have them looked at by a competent professional. If you’re doing well, you’ll know. If you’re not, well, then it was a darn good idea, huh? And if you ask nicely, we’ll do it for free. It only takes about 15 minutes.

Who You Are


You fucking rock. You filled out my survey and you guys told me stuff. Really deep shit, too—like, you hike naked and you love it when I swear. I think I am in love with each and every one of you. If what you say is correct, 52.9 percent of you are female. Most are single, having “avoided marriage diligently and successfully,” and ranging in age from 22 to 60 years old, or as one of you put, “somewhere between busy being born and busy dyin’.” Also, many of you say you’re too old for me but damn, you look good for your age!—which, on average, is 35. You’re across the board on a couple of things—namely, your astrological and Chinese signs—due in no small part to some of you either refusing to answer “on the grounds that astrology is ridiculous,” or claiming that you were born in the year of “Moo Goo Gai Pan.” But what’s endearing to me is some of the cool stuff you do for a living, as well as the really cool stuff you’d like to do. Accountants want to be philosophers. Lawyers long to be artists. Artists want to be musicians. Salespeople yearn to be firemen, investigative reporters, novelists, dancers, world travelers, 24/7 stoners and lazy muthafuckas. Meanwhile, actors are giving up radio voice-over to be jewelry designers. Others are shunning “bartending with stripper fantasies unfulfilled” to be estheticians. It just brings a tear to my eye. You love everything about Maui, especially when you’re horseback riding, smoking cigarettes, surfing, drinking cold Coronas and cruising with the dogs—and that’s just the girls! Back in the yard, the manlier of you are wishing on the moon, singing, cooking, reading, walking on the beach alone, and “writing music, eating fried chicken, drinking bourbon and masturbating.” Nice. When it comes to vices, weed seems to come up a lot. Well, that and Maui wowie, paka lolo, Mary Jane, buds and “writing music, eating fried chicken, drinking bourbon and masturbating” again. You LOVE watching Lost and the Daily Show. You listen to everything, from Kathleen Battle to the Black-Eyed Peas, Erasure to kiho’alu, bluegrass to booty shakin’, and reggae, reggae, reggae. Your literary and cinematic tastes are just as varied. From The Dance of the Dissident Daughter to Secrets of the I Ching, you women are mostly reading as a means of cultural exploration and self-discovery. Oh, the guys are, too, what with Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs, Blinding Light and your new cell phone manual. Most of you aren’t going out that much—one night a week, on average—but more women are drinking at home or on the beach, while the guys are racking up “30 or so” Cuervo Gold shots in “hell” every week. But what’s curious to me is while Patron and Jagermeister are the shots you prefer, they’re also the same shots you will never have again since that one time when you were 16 or went to that Cinco de Mayo thing in ’98. And most of you have had a lot of sex but aren’t right now. Speaking of sex, the girls love Colin Farrell, Johnny Knoxville and Angelina Jolie, while the guys—I don’t think they understood the question. It’s which celebrity would you most like to have sex with, not which hedonistic heathen who has a column in MTW—which most of you have been reading since the beginning, so thank you. And apparently, I’ll be hanging out in Kihei a lot more. Now let’s get to the part about ME. You like me, for the most part—at least, those of you who filled out the survey. I really do appreciate your very kind words; that you can relate to some of my experiences, that you’re living vicariously through me, that you like my honesty (and yes, it is all true) and that you find this column “usually entertaining… when it isn’t, at least it’s short.” As for your grievances—I, too, would like more Jen stories, would love to write for your town, believe alcohol is lame (largely), realize I may be perceived as “calling out for love/help,” that I can be silly and that I am triggering “a flashback to one of those evil lingering hangovers, the kind that creeps up on you and no amount of Ibuprofen, coffee or junk food can keep at bay—once, I thought I could actually smell the tequila.” And you overwhelmingly think I’m crazy for thinking David Letterman is hot. Still, I’m your kind of girl. And we should totally hang out. A horrifying lot of you have no idea who Anthony Pignataro is—um, he’s the editor of this paper and my direct supervisor. A large number of you believe he is a tyrant, although you appear to be confused as to why: “If by Anthony Pignataro you mean Jessica Alba and by cigar-chomping bully you mean delightfully delicious, then yes, I do.” And apparently, the rest of you think he’s “kinda cute in the pictures, maybe boyish,” “a darling huggy-bear of a guy,” “a closeted Republican” and a “nice ol’ school fart.” Either way, you think a cigar-chomping bully is “better than an icesmoking pussy.” We have a lot in common, you and I. Nice to meet you. MTW
