LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR A TOURIST’S TAKE Re the article about Maui’s dependence on tourism [“The tourism trap,” February 5]: I love Maui. I’ve been visiting almost every year since 1990. We don’t do a lot of the tourist activities anymore, but we do support MACC, attend at least one of their shows every year, along with any other cultural events we can find and spend a lot of money shopping and eating out. We tip an average 25-30 percent at the restaurants knowing that these employees depend on tips to survive. We have made friends with locals and some even come to stay with us when they are in Washington. We also take it upon ourselves to help keep your beaches clean by walking with garbage bags and picking up fishing lines, food containers and even used condoms. We have always enjoyed the interactions with the locals and tried to be ever so unnoticeable, unlike many tourists. Year before last our contact with locals started to decline. Not the true Hawaiians, but some of the others. We attributed it to a busy season and people just being tired. In 2008, people were horrible. My mother is a very quiet, reserved person and people treated her like crap. One time she wasn’t quick enough to make her decision at a shave-ice shop and the person threw her pen and pad down and stormed off. She finally came back from bitching at her co-worker about how slow my mom was, was still so crappy that I had to step in and ask her if there was a problem. We gave them a second chance, went back another day and same girl was there doing the same thing to the people in front of us. There were other times that these attitudes came from nowhere. We saw it happening to all sorts of people at different places. I’m on the fence on whether I will return this year. I may try another island or a whole other state or country. Being treated like crap does not make for a relaxing vacation nor does it make me want to return. So just let it be known that the economy isn’t the only reason for less tourism—so is your treatment of tourists. Pam, submitted online at

INDIANA AND MAUI: TWO PEAS IN A POD I find it interesting that I am labeled a tourist because I choose to visit a state of these United States. I live in Indiana. I own a timeshare in Maui and I like to think that Maui is my home away from home when I visit there. I have often been asked why I spend so much on airfare to go to Maui from Indiana when there are island resorts southwest of

Florida that are closer to Indiana. I reply that those island resorts are not part of the United States of America and until they become part of this country, I plan on spending my money in the U.S.A. When I visit nearby states like Michigan, Illinois and Ohio, I don’t hear residents of those states calling me a tourist. I am usually referred to as a neighbor or friend. I would hope that when I return to Maui this fall for my usual visit that I am welcomed as a neighbor or friend and fellow citizen. Tim from Indiana, submitted online at

ROB AND THE RICH A recent Rob Report [“Watchdog Millionaire,” January 29] concluded with a list of seemingly recommended Web sites. Yet along with Maui Tomorrow and the Sierra Club, Dowling Company was on the list. Maui Tomorrow has been working for stewardship of our Maui environment. Dowling Company, on the other hand, seeks only to maximize profit. I know Rob Parsons has repeatedly testified against Dowling’s development plans, so I imagine there is some explanation. Please enlighten me. Chandrika McLaughlin, Kihei Rob responds: Due to a typo, the title of my article, “Watch Dowling Millionaire” had a few letters deleted and read, “Watchdog Millionaire.” No, seriously, I noted that the Focus Green lecturers are sponsored by Dowling Company to help illustrate that things are not always merely black and white, or even green. I added his company Web site link along with the eco-groups deserving of financial support because I think the intelligent reader will discern the distinct contrast in what is being promoted by the millionaire developer versus the grassroots environmentalists.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD GENITAL ORDER A sex-education advocacy organization in Sweden complained in November about the government’s program that, finally after years of resistance, provides prosthetic penises to newly transgendered males. The policy was nonetheless termed unfair because the devices are cosmetic only and do not “work.” (Regulations prohibit taxpayer money for “sexual aids.”)

HOLY ROLLER Episcopal priest Gregory Malia, 43, of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., buys top-dollar champagne at New York City nightclubs, even leaving five-figure tips and treating his favorite waitresses to shopping sprees, according to a December New York Daily News report. Said Malia (who is a hemophiliac and owns a pharmacy devoted to blood-disorder medicine), “I work hard. I make good money. How I spend it, that is my business.” Waitresses interviewed by the Daily News said “Father Greg” is a sweetheart, never doing anything inappropriate, but exceedingly generous, whether alone or with business clients. Said one waitress, “A bad night for him is [a tip of] $5,000.”

PEOPLE POWER, PART 1 Forbes magazine reported in December that state authorities were investigating Beverly Hills, Calif., plastic surgeon Alan Bittner over his claim that he had created diesel fuel for his and his girlfriend’s SUVs out of liposuctioned fat from his patients. California law is said to prohibit using medical waste for such a purpose, but Bittner’s claims came to light in patients’ lawsuits over liposuction treatments, quoting Bittner as brag-



ging about the biodiesel. Bittner wrote on one Web page (no longer online), “The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel, and I have more fat than I can use.”

PEOPLE POWER, PART 2 London’s Gymbox in Bank athletic club, recognizing that lifting weights can be a boring way to exercise, introduced “human barbells” recently, hiring five men of various sizes (including two dwarfs) that customers could use for weights instead of the iron. One advantage of the humans is that, on request, they shout encouragement to the customer with each lift. The largest of the five is a 37-year-old, 340-pound man.

SHELLFISH ACT Walter Tessier was charged with one of the pettiest of petit larceny counts in January as sheriff’s deputies in Amsterdam, N.Y., said he tried to defraud a Price Chopper store. Tessier had purchased a $10.99 lobster but returned it, claiming that it had turned “bad,” and the store allowed him some crab meat in exchange, but employees discovered that the “lobster” was only its empty, carefully reconstructed shell that made it appear whole. Tessier then ran from the store but was arrested later at his home, where he had just finished the crab meat.

According to the sheriff, Adam’s parents, Doug and Valerie Herrman, only recently reported him missing, even though they had not seen him since he ran away in 1999, when he was 11. The Herrmans’ attorney said that his clients were nonetheless “very worried about him.” MTW


A member of the Maui Time crew who shall remain nameless has a fixation with zombies that borders on the unhealthy. She can take solace in the fact that she’s not alone.

Forget the ragged Dawn of the Dead dudes who walked like they’d just had broom handle enemas; no, these are hot zombies.

Fixing the system Scientist Jon Schulz is doing something ‘radically different’ t doesn’t take a rocket scientist to define sustainability, but I found one who was willing to do exactly that. Jon Schulz founded the Colorado Sustainability Project in 1994, after a stint at Martin-Marietta, during which time he worked on NASA projects from Skylab to the Viking orbiters and Mars landers. Fulfilling a lifelong dream to visit Hawaii, Schulz showed up for last week’s Focus Green talk by Ray Anderson, author of Mid-Course Correction. Schulz, now working as a systems designer with Integrated Living Systems, had heard Anderson speak some seven years earlier, and didn’t want to miss an opportunity to be re-inspired by the former corporate CEO turned sustainability guru. Anderson, who introduced himself as a “husband, father, grandfather and radical industrialist,” addressed a McCoy Theater audience that included


Schulz, trained as a biologist and accustomed to observing the way nature designs things, agrees. “Ray said, ‘If the way we think about things doesn’t shift, we will not achieve sustainability,’” said Schulz. He argues that whole system design, using “total resource productivity, with zero waste as a corporate goal,” earns “incredibly more money” than existing practices. “In nature,” Schulz emphasizes, “nothing is separate, nothing is wasted. Everything is food for something else.” ver Sunday afternoon coffee at a Makawao deli, Schulz elaborated on his ideas. He said it’s hard to comprehend how much waste we produce—how standard practice may generate as much as 94 percent waste, while the remaining 6 percent is the end product. “If you’re manufacturing and polluting,” Schulz offered, “or digging stuff out of the Earth and it’s causing problems— stop!” He emphasized, however, that you can’t optimize any system merely by


Schulz feels that most economists are incompetent, because they ignore natural and social capital. “It’s just more money down a rat hole if you don’t shift how you think about things.” Councilmember Mike Victorino and Mayor Charmaine Tavares. While otherwise “preaching to the choir” of Mauians interested in the sustainability movement, Anderson detailed how new thinking that considers upstream effects of corporate actions is essential. “The status quo is an opiate,” Anderson related. “The break with ‘we’ve always done it this way’ is hard.” Nevertheless, he shared how his company, Interface Carpets, has already achieved a 50 percent reduction in fossil fuel consumption and emits 82 percent less greenhouse gasses. The ultimate goal is not just to do no harm, but to help restore ecosystems compromised by humans’ wasteful consumption. And, Anderson reported, “These initiatives have been amazingly good for business.” Still, he believes that an educational culture shift toward “enviro-responsibility” is the key component of seven steps needed to “climb the mountain of sustainability.”

adjusting one part. Likewise, if you don’t fix a dysfunctional system, your own productivity within it “doesn’t matter a damn bit.” As a teenager, Schulz told me, he faced a pivotal decision between art, at which he was proficient enough that he was already selling his own artwork, and science. He chose the latter and immersed himself in university studies in zoology, physiology, microbiology and finally—at the University of Colorado—ecology. Upon graduating, he worked for the Great Western Sugar Company, a huge sugar beet operation based in Northeastern Colorado. Running their analytical laboratory at age 26, Schulz helped the company develop proprietary information and trade secrets that allowed them to utilize every part of the sugar beet. After extracting the sugar, the remaining four-fifths of beet pulp and beet molasses or “vin liquor” is full of proteins and minerals. Potassium is extracted for fertilizer use. Schulz described a potash


shed five stories high and longer than a football field. Crystalizers would then separate out high value glutamic acid, used for flavorings. The remaining mixture is still onequarter protein, and is used to coat beet pellets for animal feed. Thus, Schulz helped guide an agricultural industry that was proficient in what he terms Total Resource Productivity. He next had an opportunity to go into the aerospace industry, working on contamination control with Skylab and the Viking Mars missions. He helped assure that “planetary quarantine” treaties were honored, and that no microbes or spores were launched or landed on Mars, where we now know there is ice and permafrost. In the 1980s, Schulz said NASA’s budget “went away.” Since he was “just a biologist,” they looked to give him work he’d fail at so they could lay him off. But he excelled at his new assignments, drawing commendations from Martin Marietta’s customers. Finally, he was asked to put together an Integration Plan for the enormous Titan 34D launch rocket, designed to carry communications satellites and other spacecraft into orbit. His breakthrough success with the project (he later found out three others had tried and failed) came when he viewed it like an ecological food chain, and determined the key was to get the right information and hardware to the right place at the right time. In the end, his final plan was accepted by all of the 40-plus agencies and purveyors involved. Martin Marietta laid off 12,000 of 17,000 employees in the early 1990s, eventually merging to become Lockheed Martin in 1995. This allowed Schulz, who obtained a master’s degree in Systems Management from the University of Denver in 1992, to shift his focus more fully into sustainability. ince then, he has helped design nearly three dozen off-the-grid homes, with water catchment, cisterns, purification, graywater recycling and solar thermal and electrical systems. In existing buildings, he


LC Watch Cell out If you’re going to be a stickler for the rules, you’d better follow them. That’s the moral; now let’s get to the story. Here’s the scene: It’s the morning of February 5 and a handful of folks has shuffled into one of the meeting rooms in Wailuku’s David K. Trask office building for another LC Adjudication hearing. Joy is in the air. Everyone finds their seats, the brief pleasantries are dispensed with and the board is about to get down to business—in this case slapping Minit Stop with a $2,000 fine for selling a six-pack of Steinlager to a minor decoy— when the proceedings are interrupted by the shrill notes of a cell phone. We all look around, as people do in those situations. A couple board members shoot icy glares at the peanut gallery, assuming it must be one of us who forgot to switch to “vibrate.” There is, after all, a clearly visible sign posted right beside the door that asks all who enter to shut off their mobile devices. Surely it had to be a newbie, someone unfamiliar with the rules of the room. Nope. Turns out the offending ringtone is emanating from the pocket of Vice Chair Darren Lopez, the man who leads these meetings and does the bulk of the talking. Probably the one person with zero excuse to not follow that simple rule. (To his credit, he did look a bit embarassed as he shut the thing off.) Think we’re being unfairly nitpicky? That we’re holding Lopez to an unreasonable standard and getting morally indignant over something that’s actually pretty silly? You’re right. That’s exactly what we’re doing. Guess we’ve been spending too much time hanging around the LC.

whale or a pine tree and a sugar beet. Out of the Box is a collection of 21 “fairy tales that are true,” said Schulz. The book’s aim is to help business executives understand profound concepts displayed in nature. Schulz named several other schools of thought that, like ZERI, view the economics of whole systems and following nature’s guidelines as the real cornerstones of sustainability. He sees each of the multiple frameworks—permaculture; cradle to cradle; natural step; natural capitalism; ZERI; and biomimicry—as compatible ways to think clearly about system science. Schulz took the first-ever ZERI training offered in the United States in 2002, and is now among their certified systems designers found around the world. “The Japanese are way ahead of us on this,” said Schulz. “In fact, the rest of the world is ahead of us.” ERI begins by conducting a Critical Needs Assessment and addressing basic human needs first. For example: a project in South Brazil that looked to improve rice harvests and prices determined that the majority of the children were undernourished. By adding cultivation of blue-green algae to their rice fields, they were able to provide nutritional supplements for the entire community while also commanding a high price for the coveted spirulina. Soon Schulz will travel to India for work on specific projects, including microenterprise development. But first, he has his eyes on a local opportunity. Schulz told me he stopped by the Puunene Sugar Mill last week and asked to meet with someone to discuss some whole systems thinking. He hopes to talk story with Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar plantation executives. Given Schulz’s experience in Mainland sugar processing—and the fact that the company is reeling from $13 million in 2008 losses—perhaps HC&S officials will heed his advice. Schulz feels that most economists are incompetent, because they ignore natural

and social capital. “It’s just more money down a rat hole if you don’t shift how you think about things. The crazy thing is you can make so much more money by doing things differently and beneficially.” “The economics of whole systems is radically different than core business,” he continued. “You know, the reductionist, materialistic old world view—competition, and win-lose scenarios. In the current paradigm, even compromise feels like everyone leaves the room feeling as though they lost something. I prefer when everyone wins.” MTW

The Colorado Sustainability Project he founded in 1994 merged four years later with the Sustainable Futures Society. Their thrust was twofold: education/outreach and implementing grassroots projects. He learned about the Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives (ZERI) global network while attending an Omega Institute conference in September 2001. The nonprofit ZERI was founded by Gunter Pauli, president of one of the first ecologically based corporations in Europe in the early 1990s, Ecover, which pioneered biodegradable household cleaning products. ZERI’s network of creative minds shares a common vision: using

nature’s design principles as inspiration and viewing waste as a resource, not a disposal issue. Striving to be “uniformly beneficial,” ZERI has participated in more than 14,000 projects in more than 50 countries on five continents. ZERI also boasts an impressive library. One noteworthy volume is Nature’s 100 Best, which offers insight into green jobs based on ideas from the natural world. In partnership with the Biomimicry Guild, ZERI authors described air-conditioning inspired by termite mound design, solar cells inspired by leaves and glue-free adhesion adapted from geckos. Pauli has helped create an education model to expand the eco-literacy of children and young adults, published and distributed by Chelsea Green.

Oh, and then there was this: “Although our economy continues to be strong, we can expect a slower growth in the visitor industry.” First, you’d think if you were trying to make the bold claim that Maui’s cripplingly tourist-dependent economy is “strong” you wouldn’t immediately follow it with the contradictory conclusion that visitor numbers are bad and getting worse. Also, doesn’t “a slower growth” kind of sound like there’s a tumor in the middle of the visitor industry? OK, maybe that’s just me.


WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11 The Bush legacy reverberates: Maui lost its fourth soldier in Iraq this week, as Maui High graduate Christopher Sweet died in a stillunder-investigation “noncombat incident” at a base north of Baghdad. Condolences to his family and friends. Now, President Obama: get us out of there. If you do nothing else (and I know there’s a lot else that needs doing), do that.


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12 Mayor Tavares delivered her State of the County address yesterday to mostly glowing praise from the county council. Quoted in The Maui News, Councilmember Jo Anne Johnson called it “an excellent speech” that “gave us a definitive sense of where we are and where we need to be going.” Huh. Not sure we read the same speech, Jo Anne, because the one I saw was heavy on sizzle and extremely light on steak. Tavares dedicated the bulk of her remarks to looking back, touting what she claimed were her administration’s many accomplishments. (One of my favorite parts was when she gave a shout out to our old pals in the Department of Liquor Control for doing “an outstanding job in enforcing laws and working to reduce underage drinking.”) The portion of the speech that focused on the future was slim and contained basically zero concrete details. We got lots of soaring platitudes and even a Tibetan proverb, but not much in the way of tangible ideas or policy statements.

“Love really is not between a man and a woman. It’s between two human beings.” That’s Rep. Joe Bertram, quoted in a Maui News piece about the push for same sex civil unions in Hawaii. A civil union measure passed the House by a 33-17 vote and now heads to the Senate, where it’s expected to meet stronger opposition. (For those keeping score at home, Rep. Angus McKelvey of West Maui was the lone Valley Isle representative to side with the “nays.”) The main argument against the bill, which will be familiar to anyone who’s followed this debate here and in other states, was summed up succinctly by Rep. Gene Ward of Oahu: “This bill is not about equality. It is about an end-run for same sex marriages.” No, it’s about equality, but thanks for playing.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14 So what if I told you Hawaii could enjoy a net gain of $33 million a year by changing one law? Given the bleak status of the tourism industry and the state’s ballooning deficit, I’m sure you’d be all ears. Well, that scenario could become a reality, according to a report from the University of Hawaii, if marijuana was decriminalized and taxed. The report, titled “The Budgetary Implications of Marijuana Decriminalization and Legalization for Hawaii,” found that enforcement and prosecution of marijuana laws costs the state about $10 million a year, while revenue from the taxation of pot could top $20 million. Even if you think those numbers are inflated, there’s no denying that treating marijuana like tobacco and alcohol—in addition to making a large amount of sense—would save and make money for the state (and they could create a whole new department—the MC!). On a related note, the state legislature is currently considering four marijuana-related bills, as reported in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald; three of them deal with expanding and clarifying medical pot laws, but the fourth, HB1192, would make possession of less than an ounce a civil offense, meaning the punishment would be a parking ticket-sized fine rather than jail time. Of course, any bill that makes it out of congress will have to be approved by Gov.

Whole lotta sizzle, not much steak. Lingle, who vetoed a law last year that would have created a medical marijuana task force. At the time Lingle called the bill “an exercise at finding ways to circumvent federal law.” You know those Republicans—always fighting against state’s rights.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 17 Well, that was predictable: After sailing past the dreaded $4-a-gallon mark this summer then plummeting late in the year, gas prices have risen 20 percent nationwide since the start of 2009, according to (Hawaii is one of 16 states where the average gallon tops $2.) While lower demand and a growing emphasis (finally!) on fuel efficient vehicles will probably keep prices from shooting through the roof in the short term, it’s time to accept that cheap gas is an illusion. We’re running out of the stuff, and most of what’s left belongs to folks who, as John McCain is fond of putting it, “don’t like us very much.” Oh, and the people who sell it are greedy bastards, so there’s also that.

FEBRUARY 19, 2009



t’s happy hour on the kind of evening for which outdoor seating was invented. You suck down a discount mai tai and contemplate ordering another in anticipation of sunset. A guy strums his guitar in the corner, perhaps with a drum machine backing him up, and he plays with rare precision. As his set list unfurls you may experience deja vu, or perhaps the sense that some unspoken rite is unraveling as bar patrons reduce their rumrunners to rubble, as another day in paradise is laid to rest. The crowd eagerly imbibes “Margaritaville” and “Tequila Sunrise,” but the pinnacle of this late afternoon ceremony happens when the sun hits the home stretch and you hear the opening bars of “Baby I Love Your Way.” One can observe this scenario in virtually any subtropical, tourist-trodden locale in the United States, and certainly here in Maui. It is ritual in a time when ritual seldom goes beyond the mundane, but the fact that it hinges on the familiar repetition of the same songs reflects music’s ability to comfort by way of reinforcing cultural values. It also might be bad news for originality.

Venues book cover bands because they’re a tried and true way to bring people in. This makes it tougher for original acts to try out new material and to build a following.


FEBRUARY 19, 2009



he proliferation of cover acts, especially in tourist destinations, calls into question the purpose that music serves. While perpetuation of culture is obviously one of its vital functions (something we can especially see in Hawaiian music), innovation among musicians can spark many things, including a strong sense of community among creative people. But is there room for both on the Valley Isle? There seems to be a profusion of performers from both camps on Maui at the moment. Bands and solo musicians that play mostly cover tunes usually enjoy steady work, while bands with original material, granted they have a following, can play at a number of venues throughout the island, though with less frequency. People who are heavily involved with the Maui music scene say there are many talented musicians these days, most of whom are willing to work together as a community, and that there is potential for the scene to blow up, to put the island on the map. Others say that demand for cover tunes among venues is stifling what could be a thriving original music scene. But it may not be so cut-and-dried. “It’s a mixed bag,” says longtime Maui musician Eric Gilliom who, though he respects Jimmy Buffett, has never learned “Margaritaville.” “In one respect you have an incredible opportunity for musicians to make a living.” The proliferation of Maui venues that want to bring in tourists—who usually aren’t all about seeking out original music—allows for a musician who doesn’t mind playing “Brown Eyed Girl” at least once a day to make a living, says Gilliom. Some musicians, after all, are just stoked to be able to support themselves by playing music, and happen to be skilled players and good entertainers. At the same time, Gilliom says, Maui’s population may not be big enough to support a thriving original music scene. The venues book cover bands because they’re a tried and true way to bring people in. Original or not, places want acts with a following. This makes it tougher for original acts to try out new material on a crowd weaned on old standbys. “It’s hard for the music to thrive if [venues] are responsible for generating revenue,” says Jerry Kunatomo, owner of BJ’s Pizzeria in Lahaina and a longtime player in the local music scene. “I think audiences are asking for something familiar.”

But a few places are trying to bring in acts that perform mostly original material. “There’s a handful of venues that are open to supporting the Gomegas and Anuheas” of Maui, Gilliom says. Prolific Maui musician Kanoa of the band Gomega, who many say is one of the hardest working musicians on-island, has it both ways. He stresses versatility on the part of musicians. “I look at it as fishing,” he says. “You’ve got to get people in there to listen to you.” Then, once patrons are secured in their seats, you play your original stuff. Kanoa says musicians who want to play consistent gigs while disseminating their original material have to

Playing covers can be tougher than playing originals, at least if you want to do them right. When you play an original, you know the song’s source of inspiration, while some covers get lost in translation. acknowledge that their role goes beyond that of brilliant musical innovator. “We’re social workers,” he says. “We help people through our work.” Having an audience member walk up to you after covering, say, Neil Young’s “Old Man” and tell you that you made his day may be just as satisfying as a warm reception after performing a new original. The difference between an entertainer and an artist, then, lies in the way he or she relates to the crowd. In any case, Kanoa says, one of the great advantages of the music scene on Maui is that it’s accessible; there are venues for musicians who can regularly bring in a solid crowd. “We as musicians on Maui should really appreciate the fact that we get to play,” he says. “No matter what, I appreciate all the gigs that I have.” The key for cultivating a strong music scene, he says, is to have a strong musical community. Ipo Kahele, who manages Gomega among other projects, agrees that it’s up to the musicians, at least in part, to build a scene. “We all try to help each other out,” she said. “We help people who are doing music for the right reason.” As for covers, Kahele says, “Sweet Home Alabama” and “What I Got” are not going anywhere. “Overall, that’s part of the business,” she says. “In order to make a dollar bill this is the formula that works.”


he people it works for are musicians whose strong suit lies in their playing. For example, while they have quality originals, the Vince Esquire Band tears the roof off at every gig because of their impeccable musicianship and high energy. And while an original may be good, audience members often respond to “Pride and Joy” not only because it’s familiar, but also because of the band’s ability to rock it out. Esquire said that the band’s original-to-cover ratio varies depending on the situation. “It can vary by venue,” he says. “We also play to the crowd. It depends on what the crowd is feeling, the energy.” The degree to which a band’s set list contains cover songs often has no bearing on a musician’s talent. Esquire said that playing covers can be tougher than playing originals, at least if you want to do them right.

When you play an original, you know the song’s source of inspiration and can thus infuse it with the emotional gravity it warrants. Covers, on the other hand, can get lost in translation. Being heavy on covers often reflects the fact that that’s what works for a given act, but it could also mean a musician or band, for whatever reason, doesn’t write. If you take it seriously, the songwriting process can be agonizing. A song can take weeks, or more, to write. Rarely does a composition come together in a flash of inspiration, contrary to popular belief. It’s a process. “You chip away at it,” says Gilliom. So, if you’re playing out four to five times a week and want to keep your set list dynamic, you may have to learn some new covers, which can have a silver lining for some. “Learning covers is a great way to keep your chops up,” Gilliom says. “In such a small area it is extremely difficult to play original music and maintain a busy gigging music business,” said Tim Rausch of A Kettle Prime, which plays primarily originals and has a following, though they do not play out as often as most cover bands. “[We play] mostly original music, normally only two or three covers a night. However, we only play twice a month. We play what we love to play. We all have jobs that pay our rent and bills. This is our passion.”


he nature of a given cover also says a lot about a musician or band.

“Unfortunately I sometimes assume a loss of creativity,” said Chantilly Mers, a musician originally of Maui who is now based in New York. “If the cover song isn’t redone or rearranged then it doesn’t really showcase the inherent original quality of the musician.”

A band can be innovative in its arrangement of someone else’s composition. A good adaptation can break down and rebuild a song as something completely different. Or a band can choose to cover deeper cuts, shedding “Brown Eyed Girl” for a lesser-known Van Morrison track like “Sweet Thing.” Many see development of original material as a matter of ambition. “I think that doing [covers] in the short term could benefit an artist,” says musician consultant and Waiehu Records publicist Jeison Manaois. “When you’re known for your music you’ll go further. The more creative, the better.” Fortunately, he says, given recent technological advances, musicians everywhere have the advantage of being DIY, from recording to promotion and touring. “There are so many artists here on Maui who could make an impact,” says Manaois, by way of getting their music online via MySpace, among other things. Original artists, in other words, don’t have to rely solely on venues for getting their stuff heard.


o many, now is an opportune moment for Maui musicians to build a scene. There are widely available, relatively inexpensive tools that help artists move forward independently. And then there’s an underreported silver lining that coincides with any economic slump: people want to be entertained, to be around something that takes their mind off their troubles. In such times people demand more from their music. The same old tunes may no longer be enough for those who once sought refuge in them. If so, now’s the time for Maui’s music community to step up and meet this demand. The sun may never set on “Baby I Love Your Way,” but we might be ready for the dawn of something new. MTW

Maui eat world Lahaina Grill offers eclectic, globe-spanning dishes eyed the buttery escargot on my spoon like a kid who just took a dare to eat a bug. It looked innocent enough, like a well-cooked mushroom soaking in a warm bath of garlic and butter. I reminded myself that people have been eating snails for centuries, and I would be doing the dining


Lahaina Grill

127 Lahainaluna Rd., Lahaina 667-5117 Dinner served nightly starting at 6pm gods a great disservice if I did not at least try this popular French delicacy. I took two deep breaths and put the whole thing in my mouth. As I chewed the firm morsel, every bite burst with guilty, buttery flavors far from what I expected from a mollusk. I exhaled a sigh of relief—escargot is not so bad. You mean you haven’t tried it yet? The escargot was my first stop on a trip around world cuisine that I experienced at Lahaina Grill. The restaurant touts itself as “New American cuisine,” which (and I had to look it up) is a term for upscale, contemporary cooking that combines flavors from America’s melting pot of ethnicities. It lives up to that definition: the owner/chef is Swiss, the executive chef is Mexican, the general

manager got her start with T.G.I. Friday’s and the original menu was modeled after famed Chicago chef Charlie Trotter. The décor is nothing short of eclectic. With cream-colored walls and eggshellblue trim reminiscent of a country cottage, Ikea-like glass lamps emitting subdued, contemporary lighting and shockingly colorful floral paintings by Maui artist Jan Kasprzycki hanging on the walls, the unusual mix of colors and genres gives the impression that someone gave Mozart a paintbrush and Picasso a piano. Our next stop on the jet-set menu felt like it should be paired with margaritas. The chile relleno placed at our table’s center was a plump poblano pepper the size of a ballpark hotdog and fried to a perfect golden brown. The pepper sat beautifully on a heap of fresh corn kernels and a tomato and vinegar puree. I am quite partial to chile relleno and have sampled every variation of the Mexican staple, which literally means “stuffed pepper.” Lahaina Grill’s version has an island twist: it’s not only stuffed with melted cheese, but with pureed prawns and scallops as well. The delicate stuffing is moist and tastes more like breading than seafood. While devouring the pepper up to the stem, my pallet was not quite prepared for the hit of heat that came at the end; it was like the poblano’s gangsta cousin taking the last punch in a fight. It’s a nice surprise for this spicy-food lover and I concede that it might be the best chile relleno this side of the Rio Grande, which is saying something given my Texas roots.

For the entrée, I ordered the kalua duck. As I pierced the fowl leg with my fork, the meat fell apart in long, juicy strips, much like any Mauian would recognize in a pulled-pork sandwich. The usually gamey dish has the soft, smoky flavor of roasted pig. Duck confit is a special dish because generally it is made using a centuriesold process of preservation that involves curing a piece of duck leg in salt and then poaching it in its own fat. After marinating for up to 36 hours, the duck is slowly cooked at a low temperature from 90 minutes to 10 hours until it is meltingly tender. More so than any filet mignon could hope to be. We ended our meal with the dessert sampler. A quarto of Crème Brule, berry pie, flourless chocolate cake and a vintage Hawaiian chocolate cake called Road to Hana, Maui. While all four are exceptional, only one made my toes curl. Starting with a soft chocolate cake base, the Road to Hana is paved with a chocolate and sour cream mousse, intertwined with gen-

Good mojo Mojomana: like Velvet Underground plus The B52s four hours into an acid bender ne of music’s most important functions is enhancement of landscape. Part of the appeal of a record like, say, Getz/Gilberto lies in its ability to define a moment and become inseparable, at least in memory, from a physical setting. (Think early evening, Makena, champagne, Getz. Damn.) Some artists’ compositions just have an unquantifiable ability to invoke various types of scenery, some nameless force that pushes the music into another dimension. Haiku-based Mojomana does this without overdoing it. And they know how to party. “I aim for infamy,” drummer Dan Minichiello tells me over an assortment of flavored cleaning products at a cafe in Paia. His first concert was Cream, he says, and he recalls a lethargic and bone-thin Ginger Baker mounting the stage, later coming alive for a 45-minute drum solo. Magic.



FEBRUARY 19, 2009

Singer/guitarist Melissa M., who writes most of their songs, says that she often breaks strings from playing too hard, from trying to convey the gestalt of whatever musical picture she has in mind. It’s no wonder geography seems to play heavily into their sound: M. grew up in

Mojomana Web site: Next gig: Saturday, February 21, 9pm at Eha’s, Wailuku

New Mexico and went to college and grad school in Flagstaff, AZ. She’s been on Maui for nearly a decade. Not a bad record as far as inspiring locales go. M. employs chord progressions that are simple and pretty catchy, but often dramat-


ic (with a few blues structures here and there), and lead guitarist Rodney K. overlays them with stretchy, psychedelic solos (I would like to stress here that they’re not quite a jam band). Bass and drums (furnished by Dino Segovis and Minichiello, respectively) give M.’s dreamy compositions a dance-inducing bounciness. The band assembled in 2005, and debuted at an Iraq War veterans’ benefit concert. Now in a slightly different configuration, they gig a few times a month, and play at Eha’s this Saturday. M. says Mojomana has gotten comparisons to the likes of the Cowboy Junkies and Mazzy Star. While bands with female vocalists tend to get compared to other girl-fronted bands simply by virtue of plumbing, these comparisons actually have merit. Here’s my comparison: The Velvet Underground plus The B52s, four hours into an acid bender in the desert.

They do surf versions of “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “Tracks of my Tears” and a blues version of “Gin and Juice.” Lyrically, M. explores an array of physical and psychological landscapes. “A lot of it is really somewhat of a stream of consciousness,” she says. M.’s vocal style is striking. She’s on the low end of mezzo-soprano with a breezy, slightly frail sound that never becomes nasal. She sometimes goes a little flat, but in a way that totally works; the way Liz Phair used to do before selling out. So what about the name? M. says they came up with it while trying to describe what mana is to someone—kind of like mojo, but then again pretty different. It is at the intersection between mojo and mana where their music lies—music that is more conjured than crafted. MTW

Sure, it seems innocuous enough: a MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role-playing game) to fill in the hours when you’re not busy.

Suddenly, you’re blowing off important engagements, your hygiene has gone out the window and your family is afraid to come near the computer. If this hasn’t scared you off yet, there was an incident in WoW that replicated real-life epidemics. Even the Center for Disease Control was interested in it. But I’m sure you’re made of stronger stuff; this won’t happen to you. And hey, you can quit at any time…right? The newest expansion kit, The Wrath of the Lich King, was released in November 2008. This probably explains why I haven’t had a date since.

I used to pride myself on my grammar, going so far as to use it while texting. However, with the advent of lolcats, I find myself saying things like, “Oh noes! I need more pix of teh kittehs!” If lolcats don’t do it for you, there are links to other lol-related things, such as: Lol News and Politics, Engrish and the ever-popular Fail Blog.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

★★ ★★★★ Rated PG/105 min.

“chick flicks” and women’s movies in general, while, at the same time, bashing this one. Here’s the reason I wanted to see this movie: the director, P.J. Hogan, made My Best Friend’s Wedding, a witty, stylish romantic comedy. Let’s just say lightning didn’t strike twice.

Isla Fisher stars as a city gal with an expensive addiction. Her credit card bills become so dire, she cons her way into a job as a fashion writer with a gift for Finnish culture. The movie thinks it’s a satire of materialism, but really it’s a celebration of it and a world record candidate for having the most product placements in film history. It’s liking watching the Home Shopping Network with a plot. Fisher is a sunny, try-anything-for-alaugh physical and verbal comedienne and she gets some real laughs out of this desperate material. The running subplot about her dodging a bookish collection agent and a scene where she assaults her dance partner with a fan get chuckles entirely because of Fisher’s hardworking performance, but she can’t overcome material this flimsy. John Lithgow has a small supporting role as a company big wig; he’s one of our greatest living stage and screen actors and one who rarely does movies anymore, which makes his nothing

You pink you know, but you have no idea. role all the more of a letdown. Kristin Scott Thomas, Joan Cusack, Fred Armisen, Lynn Redgrave, Julie Hagerty and John Goodman are cast in roles that define thankless and are completely wasted. Action movie guru Jerry Bruckheimer is the film’s executive producer, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. He was also behind Coyote Ugly, which was equally slick, heartless, dumb and degrading to women. I went to this movie with two female friends. They both said it was made for women, noted all the ladies in the audience who laughed throughout the screening and

simply dismissed my negative opinion as immaterial, since the movie wasn’t intended for men. I couldn’t disagree more. Women love good films tailor-made for men, just as I know many guys who loved Sleepless in Seattle. A great movie is great no matter who the filmmakers intended the audience to be. I’m giving this movie one star for the one thing in it that’s worth seeing: Isla Fisher’s performance. She has oodles of talent, but her work is mostly eclipsed by one bad, cringe-inducing scene after another. MTW

THIS WEEK’S PICKS Straight to the Source

Heating up Lahaina

Friday-Tuesday (Feb. 20-23), Camp Keanae, Haiku

Friday (Feb 20), 5:30pm, Lahaina Civic Center

Did you know that we get the term “guy” (as in: Florida Governor Charlie Crist? Man, that guy is hot!) from effigies of Guy Fawkes, which Brits would burn after Fawkes plotted to blow up the Parliament building in 1605? Fawkes and crew sought to restore Roman Catholicism as Great Britain’s national religion. Fast forward to Black Rock Desert, Nevada, Labor Day Weekend, the modern era: Burning Man. Unlike Fawkes, this event promotes radical self-reliance and expression, decommodification and leaving no trace, among other things. This weekend’s Source event is Maui’s Burning Man equivalent. In its second year, Source consists of music, art and theatrical performances as well as health and education workshops. Look for the Franklin Symposium, a meeting of the minds described as “adult show and tell.” But Source is more than the sum of its parts; it’s something you really have to experience in order to fully grasp it. This year’s theme is The Great Expression, a not-too-subtle word play indicating creativity and collaboration in the face of economic peril. A bunkhouse and tent camping are available on-site for multiple-day attendees. For more information and to buy tickets, visit Presale tickets are $175 for an all-inclusive pass and $65 for a day pass.

When I was made aware of Pepper’s Maui show I warily checked out their MySpace page. My concern was that they might not be very good. Yet a band that started out in Hawaii (Kona, to be exact) that has become a national act warrants attention when they come back to the islands. So I clicked, and was pretty impressed with what I heard. In addition to their originality and obviously good musicianship, Pepper has a natural edge that other bands in its league lack: their Kona roots add a layer of Hawaiian life and music to their already eclectic rock/reggae/dub sound. One might lump these guys with the likes of 311 and Slightly Stoopid, with whom they share similarities on the surface, but I detect a much broader net of musical influences in their sound. While punkinspired tune “Blackout” is so far my favorite tune of theirs, I detect the influence of some of my own musical heroes, namely Cream, in some of their other tunes. Yet while their songs tend to be heavy and driven, their approach to music is playful (look at their album art) and extremely dynamic. It’s no wonder that the band has shared the stage with Shaggy, Snoop Dogg and Burning Spear, among others. The Alliez open. Find tickets at Quietstorm, Maui Tropix, Hard Rock, Otopia or Request.

Cool hand fluke

Pecha keen

Saturday (Feb. 21), 9am, Kalama Park, Kihei

Tuesday (Feb. 24), 6:30pm, Café Moana, Paia

What do whales, sunsets and Creedence Clearwater Revival have in common? I mean, aside from the obvious? Here’s a clue: I doubt you’ve ever heard anyone say, “Man, that whale/sunset/CCR song sucks!” All three enhance the arenas of existence in which they operate, so it is tough to imagine anyone disparaging them. All three are celebrated periodically. Sunsets are observed daily. The town of El Cerrito, CA celebrates John Fogerty Day July 15 in honor of Creedence’s singer/rhythm guitarist. Maui honors whales every February. The Pacific Whale Foundation’s Whale Day celebration kicks off with an all-things-whale parade, which goes along South Kihei Road from the fire station to Kalama Beach Park. Festivities continue at said park with food, live music, information booths and more. Musical acts include: John Cruz, The Willie K Band, Micah Wolf, Marty Dread, Gomega, George Kahumoku Jr., Shifty Sailors and others. Plus, Maui Time staffers like myself will be representin’ by way of a booth. Bring me a thermos full of cold Corona and I’ll make you famous. Free.

I have lost count of the number of times I’ve heard friends complain that there is no intellectual community on Maui. I mean, there are plenty of intelligent, creative people here, but it’s hard to get them to assemble in one place. Pecha Kucha night is an event that has great potential to bring together those on-island who seek to creatively exchange ideas and information. Here’s how it works: Participants put together a 6-minute, 40-second PowerPoint presentation consisting of 20 slides, each to be projected for 20 seconds. The beauty is that presenters can talk on any topic they wish. I’ve been to an event like this that included presentations on everything from the history of pepper to how to build a rocket. And you don’t have to present to attend; it’s totally cool if you would rather have couple of beers and take it all in. If you’re interested in presenting send an e-mail to with your idea.


Jimmy! Tuesday (Feb. 24), 7pm, MACC, Kahului Grab your frozen concoctions, Parrotheads. He’s coming, with his Coral Reefer Band in tow. Sure, there are those who say that Jimmy Buffet is overexposed, that he’s become too commercialized and blah, blah, blah. But you know what? His music is fun; it makes you bob your head and sing along. And he’s never pretended to be anything more than that, so why not just tip one (or five) back and enjoy? Tickets are $56 and up; call 242-7469 or visit [JS]

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) I delivered newspapers to the neighborhood cat lady when I was a kid. When I stopped by her house to pick up the delivery fees, I’d almost gag at the unholy stench of all those semi-feral cats. By the time she fetched her purse and fished out some money, though, I’d barely notice the stink anymore. Like her, you’ve been living with unpleasantness for so long that you barely notice it. It’s still there, though—you might still see it on people’s faces when they first encounter it. Everything’s a trade-off, of course. I’m sure the cat lady got something out of providing sanctuary for all those unwanted strays. However, this is a good week to ask if the trade-off you’re making is still worth it.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Clear-cutting forestland is relatively fast, efficient, and easy. Sustainable logging is much more laborintensive and less lucrative—in the short-term. The long-term is what we need to look at, though. The clear-cutters won’t see another lumber-yielding tree on that land for decades. Those who pursued a more responsible approach, however, can return every year for more, and find what they left last year taller, healthier (and therefore more profitable), because it benefited from the absence of the neighbors they chopped down last year. Don’t be tempted to just make a quick careless buck (or have a quick careless screw), not when what’s before you could easily keep you flush (or flushed) for years. Make it last.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) When dealing with spoiled children (often of the technically adult variety), I’ve sometimes found it worthwhile to stand up to their capricious whims. Someone ought to! Your general opinion is that much of the time it’s more trouble than it’s worth. Still, I could use some help keeping them from getting their way all the time—which we both know will only make matters worse. This week you’re in a great position to lend a hand. Be the grown-up: patient and kind—but also firmly unyielding, no matter what kind of temper tantrum you have to consequently endure. Please don’t shirk your duties—that’d definitely come back to haunt you.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) If I asked you to take apart a car engine and then put it back together, you’d probably be clueless, initially. Yet given enough time and the proper tools, I have faith that eventually you’d figure it out. It might be quicker and easier to just call in a professional, but consider the longer, more challenging path this week. Because of the way it will not only enrich and enlighten you, but also lead you somewhere you never thought you’d go, it’s by far the better route. If you can see it clearly enough to choose it, please do.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Water, given enough time, can carve deep canyons. Sure, given enough of the stuff you could wreak a lot of havoc in a short time, but you’d be missing out on the good stuff. Really shaping something, putting your mark on it—for good or ill—takes patience. Though you’ve gotten better, I would still not list this as one of your strong suits. If I were you, I’d take every opportunity to practice it. This week’s situation could inspire a flash flood, but I’d resist that temptation if I were you. A slow trickle might serve you better, in the long run. Take your time.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) An invisible fence is a way to train your dog to stay on your property. Beacons are buried on its borders and when he tries to cross them, his collar gives him an electric shock. Eventually for some dogs the collar becomes unnecessary. They’ll stop testing its limits. As it turns out, humans aren’t much smarter than dogs. Someone trained you to stay boxed in ages ago, and you forgot to keep checking if you were still stuck. The collar’s been off forever! Why don’t you figure out just how far you can go now that you’re free of it? The only thing stopping you is yourself; that’s pretty much all it’s ever been.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) I honestly think that you could approach any subject, no matter how ostensibly boring, and make a fascinating documentary about it, if you did so with enough naked honesty, love, and attention to detail. You’ve seen the big picture. It’s not so hot. Your fascination with and adoration of the details of everyday existence and the people you encounter in it is a source of a lot of richness and joy in your life. It’s like a language only you can read. This week, see how much of it you can translate so that others can understand and appreciate it too, would you?

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) A careless cook leaves a fishbone in your filet. What do you do? Simply pick it out, put it on the side of your plate and carry on with the meal and accompanying conversation? Make a big stink and send the plate back? Sue the restaurant? I’m worried that you’re more inclined than usual to make mountains out of molehills, an attitude that won’t benefit you in the slightest, but will instead cause a lot of misery. You’re not suffering. In the grand scheme these are inconveniences and hassles, nothing more. Don’t be a brat. Let them go.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) In the presence of each moment, there’s plenty of time for most of us to have a plethora of rich and valuable experiences. But because of the way our perspective fish-eyes and distorts looking ahead or behind us, life can often seem brutally short. That is why many forms of spirituality discourage us from spending too much time peering through those lenses, and to instead simply enjoy the expansiveness of each moment as it occurs. Of course that’s easier said than done, especially for you Scorpios, who have an almost obsessive tendency to rehash the past and fret about the future. However, staying consciously, serenely present should be easier for you this week than it usually is. Try to resist your old habits; just enjoy each instant as it unfolds.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Beware illusions that imply that you’ll have tremendous influence over the people around you. If parents can’t take malleable children and steer them where they want to go, what makes you think you ought to be able to with full adults? I don’t know who started the notion that we should try to steer people in directions they’re not inclined to go, but I’d like to slap him. Be there for people, or not, as you wish, this week—but don’t try to make them go where or be who you want them to. It’ll just piss them off.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Having minimum standards is all well and good but what do you do if no one qualifies? Most people eventually lower those unreasonable criteria. It’s either that or give up that aspect of your life for which there’s currently no one worthy. Part of me admires your commitment to excellence, but at some point it crosses over into delusional nothingness. These things are important to you—thus the standards. But when upholding them means you don’t even get the tiniest part of what you want, for a really long time, it may be time to reconsider and revise them.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Forget the concept of “normal.” There’s quite simply no such thing. Sure, a manic holy roller or bearded lady might not be as able to hide their freakhood as others, but rest assured that every last one of us is just that freaky, even if some have gotten very good at hiding it. Get close enough to anyone and it becomes incredibly obvious. This is a good thing! What a relief! We’re all crazy weirdoes! If you honestly haven’t realized that yet, I hope this week you get the chance to really figure it out once and for all. Then you can finally drop this ridiculous business of trying to be “normal,” and start the much more important business of getting to know other people for real—and really get to know yourself.
