Damn commies! Some Republican lawmakers want to nationalize big banks. That isn’t good news t may be one of the signs of the apocalypse when influential Republican senators start recommending nationalization of businesses, in this case banks. It’s like a Democrat going off on an anti-abortion tirade: it’s just not supposed to happen. So when it does, the press takes notice. And the financial press jumped right into this fracas, in many cases encouraging it. In arguing for nationalization, the press focused on two historical precedents from the late 1990s. The first was that Sweden did it effectively; the second was that Japan chose not to do it, and endured a “lost decade” of “zombie” banks and no GDP growth. However, there was a surprising number of misrepresentations running through that editorial firestorm, the most egregious of which was the use of the term “nationalization” in the first place. First off, we do not nationalize banks—or any other business for that matter—in this country. Ever. What we do is take over banks with a regulatory process using the FDIC as part of a government guarantee of bank deposits. The government doesn’t own these banks for an extended period of time, and in most cases they already have another bank ready to take ownership in return for making good on the seized bank’s deposits before they even step in. In fact, the last time I checked there were about 170 banks on the FDIC’s watch list, out of almost 10,000 in this country. When most of those go bad


you won’t hear much about them except a quiet Associated Press article on an inside page of your local daily on Saturday (they’re always taken over after the market close on a Friday afternoon). If we’re already doing it, and it’s no big deal, then what exactly were those Republican senators driving at?

gered almost mathematically by a lack of sufficient reserves) is out of the question, and nationalization must be used instead. This would be a historic event, and the term nationalization might actually apply. But let’s step back in history a few short months and see if this makes sense. While Paulson was in charge, he applied a larger

It’s hard to see how the government could nationalize Bank of America now after encouraging it to take Merrill Lynch against its wishes. That smacks of a $100 billion shareholder lawsuit. Well, it appears the government doesn’t want any large banks to fail because it believes we cannot afford another Lehman Bros.-like bankruptcy. That one clobbered the interbank market for months and almost collapsed the entire financial system (one can bet ex-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson wishes he had that decision back—but that’s another story). However, most of the large banks don’t appear to be in trouble, except two. Oh, and those two aren’t just large, they’re huge: Citibank and Bank of America. Problem is the Treasury has already agreed to guarantee those banks against bad mortgage loans. Thus, if the banks can’t be insolvent because of those guarantees, a regulatory takeover (which is trig-

version of the FDIC method (selling off bad banks to other stronger institutions) to save a number of huge financial failures. The Federal Reserve Bank got AIG, the Treasury got Fannie & Freddie and then he looked to other companies to take the rest. JP Morgan got Washington Mutual, Wells Fargo jumped on Wachovia and Bank of America took Merrill Lynch after taking responsibility for another large pool of toxic assets when it bought out Countrywide Mortgage on its own. The Treasury then guaranteed a large pool of Citibank mortgages to prop up that player, primarily since no one else could digest it and bankruptcy was out of the question after the Lehman debacle. Finally, to make sure no otherwise solid banks came close to the FDIC’s reserve

limits during this crisis, the government made preferred stock capital infusions into these and many others with the first half of the $700 billion bailout package last fall. Not a bad piece of work actually (although it would have been nice to get compensation and bonus restrictions for that preferred stock, but in the rush it was overlooked). However, before closing its deal, Bank of America started making noise it wanted out of the Merrill Lynch acquisition, having decided it couldn’t digest those losses after all. So the Treasury offered Citibanklike loan guarantees on Merrill Lynch’s questionable assets just to get BofA to complete the acquisition. While the devil is deep in the legal details, it’s hard to see how the government could nationalize Bank of America now after encouraging it to take Merrill Lynch against its wishes. That smacks of a $100 billion shareholder lawsuit. Citibank, on the other hand? Maybe. Yet while Sweden ultimately nationalized only its one largest bank (which fits Citibank, actually) and has since returned it to the private sector, it’s clear the Japan scenario isn’t going to happen here after Paulson’s efforts with the huge institutions and what the FDIC is quietly doing with all the others. That this is even being considered isn’t good news. But one great thing did come out of this: now we all have another way to tease our Republican friends. We can start calling them damn commies.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD URINE FOR IT Though India is recognized as a world leader in promoting the health benefits of urine, its dominance will be assured by the end of the year when a cow urine-based soft drink comes to market. Om Prakash, chief of the Cow Protection Department of the RSS organization (India’s largest Hindu nationalist group), trying to reassure a Times of London reporter in February, promised, “It won’t smell like urine and will be tasty, too,” noting that medicinal herbs would be added and toxins removed. In addition to improved health, he said, India needs a domestic (and especially Hindu) beverage to compete with the foreign influence of Coca-Cola and Pepsi.

UNRELATED INCIDENT After a 50-year separation following their adoptions by separate families, identical twins Rosabelle Glasby of Australia and Dorothy Loader of Malaysia were reunited in September 2008 after a years-long search by Glasby, and she applied to bring Loader to Australia under the country’s family migration policy. However, in January, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship ruled that, under the law, Loader is not related to Glasby (in that the adoption wipes out birth status).

BUT CAN HE GET A HOME LOAN? In a December test of the laxness of New York City’s property-ownership office, a New York Daily News reporter walked out of the city’s register of deeds with title to the $2 billion Empire State Building. His fake



purchase document, with a fake notary public stamp and a fake “witness” signature (of “Fay Wray,” star of the original King Kong), took 90 minutes to convert to an official deed, which of course came as a great surprise to Empire State Land Associates, to whose shocked representative the reporter “returned” the property the next day.

DON’T TELL THE LC In December, the city council in Brighton, Mich., passed an ordinance making it illegal for anyone to be “annoying” in public, “by word of mouth, sign or motions.” Violators can be ticketed and fined.

NEXT TIME TRY JENNY CRAIG Robert Blue, 53, was arrested in Las Vegas in January and charged with chaining his 15-year-old daughter to her bed at night to keep her from eating. Blue told police that the girl weighs 165 pounds, but that he wanted her at 145, which he said is her ideal fighting weight for mixed martial arts.

IN TEXAS, SANE PEOPLE EAT THEIR EYES As far as the state of Texas is concerned, Andre Thomas, 25, was and is sane and was and is competent to assist his lawyers. Thomas was convicted of murdering his wife and two kids in 2004 after a judge ruled him competent despite the fact that after the killings, Thomas had carved out the victims’ hearts, put them in his pocket, and later tossed them in the garbage. In addition, before trial, Thomas had plucked out his right eye and eaten it. In October 2008, Texas’ highest criminal court upheld the conviction and sentence, endorsing the trial judge’s view of Thomas’ sanity. In January 2009, on death row in Livingston, Texas, Thomas plucked out his left eye and ate it. MTW

Garden of plenty Maui could learn a lesson from Kauai’s sustainable-food movement s a longtime Maui resident, it’s impossible to travel to a neighbor island without recognizing subtle and distinct differences, not only in the natural topography and developed landscapes but in the community vibe as well. A long weekend jaunt to Kauai offered the opportunity to reflect upon how we view one of the basic necessities of life—food. Despite encroaching economic hardships and recent dissertations on sustainability, there has been almost no perceptible shift in Maui’s comprehension of the urgent need to grow more food for local consumption. Likewise, the community at large has yet to understand the long-term benefits of producing and consuming healthy fresh fruits and vegetables, as opposed to packaged, processed, imported fare. Spending a few days on the Garden Isle allowed me to observe a grass-


Monsanto plantings of genetically modified corn—indicative of 21st century corporate agri-business’s worldwide control of our food supply. Yet I observed encouraging trends in food production, purchasing and sharing from our neighbors on Kauai. There are indications that cohesiveness of community, the very quality that helped them mend after the ferocious devastation left behind Hurricane Iniki in 1992, may guide the island towards better self-sufficiency. ike each of the major Hawaiian Islands, Kauai is a study in contrasts. The drier south side of the island supports coffee growing, Pioneer biotech seed corn and Hawaii’s other remaining sugar cane operation, Gay & Robinson at Kekaha (which is transitioning out of the commodity sugar business into ethanol production). And there are vast expanses of red volcanic soil.


Many local residents have yet to reconcile their attachment to the convenience of polyethylene plasticpacked foods, as one would find when buying apples, pies or sushi at Costco. roots support for local food, with efforts ranging from farmer’s markets to seed exchanges; from exotic tropical fruit cultivation to a glorious publication highlighting food production throughout the Hawaiian islands. With an estimated 65,000 residents, Kauai is about half as populated as Maui. Kauai simply feels more rural, more country-style. Leaving the economy-sized airport at Lihue and heading north, one is quickly soothed by open space views of the mountains and ocean. Visitors landing on Maui, by contrast, soon are in bumper-to-bumper traffic, driving through a commercial gauntlet of big box stores, fast-food franchises and gas stations, hemmed in with overhead power lines and acres of parking lots. Then, upon passing through the urban sprawl of Kahului, the Maui visitor views vast fields in the central valley planted to sugar cane, vestiges of the old plantation paradigm that once flourished. A few miles south, towards Maalaea and Kihei, are

Kauai’s wetter north side displays a stunning backdrop of time-sculpted, verdant mountains, interlaced with meandering rivers that also irrigate hundreds of taro lo‘i. In the center of town stands the old building where Hanalei Poi Company has processed the revered Hawaiian staple food for decades, a 2-foot tall stone poi pounder gracing the tiny front lawn. Just behind is a large field where locals and visitors gather each Saturday morning for a farmer’s market, one of several that happen throughout the week islandwide. Fresh greens, fruits, flowers, veggie starts and even small fruit trees are on display. A steady stream of customers flows through, stocking up for the coming week. In the spirit of buying and eating food grown locally, I bought my first-ever perfectly ripe chocolate sapote, an exotic fruit native to Mexico and Guatemala. Sometimes called black sapote, black persimmon or chocolate pudding fruit, the ripe flesh is the color and texture of cake frosting, but not as sugary.


In nearby Kilauea, I noticed that the Healthy Hut natural food store not only carried local farm goods, but also had a rack of vegetable starts at the shop’s entryway. Our hosts had just tilled up a large portion of their backyard to expand their own garden, while a variety of young fruit trees lined the other end of the property. Bill Robertson of Ahonui Farms in Moloa‘a is one of Kauai’s many organic farmers, with 10 acres planted in vegetables, herbs and fruits. Specializing in rare tropical fruits, he also tends an orchard with 45 longan trees and 300 rambutans (both relatives to the lychee), planted a dozen years ago. Many are sold locally, while he also ships the outrageous-looking, hairy-tendriled red fruits to Honolulu. One of the most inspiring efforts taking place on Kauai is that of Paul Massey of Regenerations Botanical Garden. Based in Kapahi on Kauai’s east side, Regenerations conducts a variety of related programs, with a mission of maintaining plant diversity through communitybased stewardship. Their lists of programs includes: research; cultural/community development; propagation; seed banking; field collection and monitoring; habitat management; and communication/education/training. Massey also helps coordinate a periodic seed exchange, a free event that has met with growing success. Their third biannual community seed exchange will take place March 7 at Koloa Neighborhood Center, with an educational slide show presentation and music. Participants are asked to bring GMOfree, pest-free, non-invasive seeds, plants and cuttings to share with one another. Even those with no seeds or plants to share are invited to take something home with them to plant, thus ensuring they’ll have something to contribute at the next exchange. ack in Kilauea town, we visited the Kilauea Fish Market, tucked away in

LC Watch Victims of circumstance The slant of this column is obvious. But just because we go after the Department of Liquor Control doesn’t mean the people they regulate and punish are always innocent; often they aren’t. Many of the bars and restaurants that get called before the Adjudication Board did indeed screw up. Sometimes the punishment doesn’t fit the crime, and sometimes the “crime” itself is questionable. But on the whole, plenty of establishments shuffle guiltily under the LC’s admonishing glare. All that being said, it was hard not to feel genuinely sorry for the small, soft-spoken co-owner of Unisan in Wailuku, who faced the board on charges of selling to a minor decoy. With her limited English— which necessitated the help of an interpreter—she explained what happened: On June 1, 2008, her restaurant was in the midst of throwing a party in conjunction with Kahului-based promoters All Access Entertainment when her husband had to leave because of a family issue. That’s when an LC minor decoy entered the restaurant and ordered a beer—and all heck broke loose. As soon as the sting was revealed, the bartender who served the beer reportedly flew off the handle, shouting “Eff the LC!” (at least that’s how it was repeated at the hearing) and storming out. Adding insult to injury, Unisan’s owner said they later discovered the bartender had been skimming money off the register. And the All Access guys—who were responsible for checking IDs and strapping on wristbands at the door—got off scot-free. Sure, responsibility ultimately rests with the venue. But a less harsh view is that the Unisan folks were victims of circumstance. Now, they say, they think twice about having big parties and even check the IDs of the senior citizens who show up for kachikachi night. Better safe than sorry.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18 Well, that didn’t take long: Less than a month after trumpeting its maiden flight from Kahului to Honolulu with press invites and much fanfare, Mokulele Airlines is teetering on the brink of insolvency. First came an AP report that Mainland-based Republic Airway Holdings was set to step in and seize Mokulele’s assets if Mokulele failed to make a payment on a maxed-out $8 million credit line. A few hours later, Pacific Business News reported that Mokulele had at least earned a stay of execution by ponying up $300,000. The PBN story also says Mokulele is looking for “angel investors” and is soliciting money on its Web site ( So what do you say—anyone wanna bankroll a floundering airline? Anyone? Bueller?

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19 Can I make a humble request? We know we’re in a big financial mess. We know it’s going to take a long time to clean things up, if they ever get cleaned up. So please, Obama and company, stop saying it over and over. We’re aware you’re not miracle workers sent from outer space endowed with magical economic powers. In fact, we’re aware that some of you are the same people who got us into this pickle, or at least played a role. The prompt for this mini-rant came courtesy of our own Sen. Dan Inouye, chair of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, who was quoted thusly by the AP: “Don’t expect everything


to be rosy in two weeks.” Seriously, who is expecting this? I think even Pollyanna is hitting the bottle and buying lotto tickets at this point.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20 It has not been a good month for relations between the Navy and Hawaii’s natural treasures. First we got the announcement that the Navy will be testing sonar, which can be harmful and even fatal to whales and other marine life, in local waters. Now comes word that the 9,600-ton USS Port Royal warship caused significant damage to a stretch of coral reef when it ran aground a half-mile off Oahu on February 5. And even though the ship has been pulled out of the water, the destruction may not be over—the Honolulu Advertiser reports that 5-foot chunks of reef are still floating free in the surf and could wreak more havoc if they aren’t contained. But the real question is whether the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will slap the Navy with a fine. There’s certainly precedent. In 2006, the Kai Anela, a Maui Snorkel Charters boat, destroyed nearly 200 square meters of reef at Molokini, as reported in these pages by former editor Anthony Pignataro. The DLNR board hit Maui Snorkel Charters with a $550,000 fine in January 2008 and suspended its commercial use permit. We’ll see if they have the stones to give the U.S. military the same treatment.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21 Other than “hope” and “change,” the words Obama stressed most often on the campaign trail were probably “honesty” and “transparency.” In an effort to prove that was more than rhetoric, Team Barack has set up a Web site (, which almost sounds like a porn site) where us ordinary folks can follow the money from the stimulus package and see where it’s trickling. As of this writing, Maui County had about 90 projects identified on the site, ranging from commonplace stuff like road improvements to more ambitious endeavors like a $25 million allotment for electric vehicle charging stations. In addition to listing the projects, how much money they’ll get and how many jobs they’ll (allegedly) create, the site lets users participate. By clicking on a project you can vote whether it’s necessary and write arguments pro and con. A random sampling of clicks reveals few projects with more than a couple votes, and most have zero comments. Come on, Maui— it’s your money. Weigh in. (OK, now the cynic’s counterpoint: the argument could be made that the site is just window dressing to give people the illusion of control and that in the end votes and comments won’t mean anything. I don’t dismiss that possibility, but it beats sit-

This airline needs a handout. Any takers? ting on your hands. Unless, you know, that’s your thing.)

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22 The showdown approaches: On Friday the state Senate voted—unanimously, no less—to prevent Hawaii from selling off ceded native lands. Well, almost. The bill does allow a little wiggle room for small chunks to be sold, but it’s not even close to the carte blanche mandate Gov. Lingle is seeking. (According to an AP report, “Lingle has said she has no plans to sell or otherwise transfer large swaths of ceded lands but wants the right to do so.” Which is analogous to the fox saying he has no plans to eat any chickens but he’d like to live in the henhouse.) Now the whole thing heads for a date with the U.S. Supreme Court later this week. Depending on the outcome, it’ll be interesting to see if our Hawaii-born president gets involved.

than a grain of salt. But last night’s Academy Awards telecast offered two concise, impassioned pleas for gay rights. Both came from folks attached to the film Milk: Sean Penn, who took home a Best Actor trophy for his portrayal of the famed San Francisco activist/politician, and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who won Best Original Screenplay. After facetiously referring to Academy voters as “commie homo-loving sons of guns,” Penn called on the anti-gay protestors who picketed outside the theater to “anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren’s eyes.” Added Black: “[Milk’s story] gave me the hope that one day I could live my life openly as who I am and that maybe even I could fall in love and one day get married.” They’ve been sanctimonious and out-of-touch before and they will be again, but those damn film industry liberals are on the right side of history this time.

ROBREPORT GARDEN: continued from pg. 8 the back of a group of old stone buildings at the Historical Plantation Center. There, while waiting for an order of stir-fry ahi and vegetables, I discovered the delicious magazine, Edible Hawaiian Islands. Far from a tourist publication, the quarterly highlights efforts, “towards a more sustainable and safe food system in the Hawaiian Islands.” It is the brainchild of Gloria Cohen of nearby Princeville, who launched the magazine nearly two years ago. Adorned with gorgeous photographs and sumptuous writing and recipes throughout, Edible Hawaiian Islands follows a mission,


says Cohen, “to celebrate family farmers, bakers, fishermen, ranchers, poultry farmers, local chefs and the rest of the community for their dedication to producing the highest quality fresh and seasonal foods.” Cohen, who first came to Hawaii as a teen and has also lived in Lahaina and on North Shore Oahu, saw a similar publication back on the East Coast. Edible Communications Publications originally began as a newsletter in Ojai, California, and has spread widely. When Gloria purchased the licensing for Edible Hawaiian Islands, there were 29 such publications. Today, less than two years later, there are 54. While all are individually owned, they “stick together,” and are able to pool resources and ideas to help support one another.

Cohen says the magazine, dependent upon advertisers, has yet to make a profit, but is her labor of love, her way of giving back to the local community and cultures that have given her so much. “It’s just been amazing,” Cohen says. “Hawaii possesses such an astonishing amount of fascinating people doing great things to bring good food to our community and visitors. There is so much to tell, and so much diversity in the ethnicities represented throughout the islands.” She strives to spread the word to help foster real local food sustainability. Each issue has a comprehensive list of farmer’s markets on several islands. “People cried after the first issue came out,” Cohen says. “Market vendors and growers were so touched that someone was paying attention to what they are doing.”

Store wide inventory sale! Serendipity Home...Like you’ve never seen us before!

Each issue, coinciding with the four seasons, contains stories about each of the major islands. The current issue has book reviews of Ali‘i Chang’s The Maui Book of Lavender and the Maui Culinary Academy’s cookbook Taste of Maui. A feature article also provides an inside look to Maui Community College’s Pai‘na Culinary Arts facility and program. “The back page is always an exotic fruit or interesting local food,” says Cohen. Pohole fern, cultivated by Hana Herbs & Flowers and others, is featured in the current issue. Recipes are, of course, also included, embellished with delectable photos. Even those jaded by the overkill given to Pacific Rim Cuisine and celebrity chefs will find something to like in this magazine. Cohen says that half of her subscribers are from the Mainland and that she has readers from as far away as Europe. She often hears that it helps people feel more connected to the real Hawaii, not just someone interested in selling a helicopter tour or other activity. learly, many local residents have yet to reconcile their attachment to the convenience of polyethylene plastic-packed foods, as one would find when buying apples, pies or sushi at Costco. And for many, flavor trumps nutrition, though hopefully there is emerging awareness of what truly constitutes a healthy diet. We have a long way to go on Maui before we can claim substantial progress towards food self-sufficiency. Following the example of some of our Kauai neighbors may help us make an intelligent—not to mention tasty—transition. MTW

hen thumbing through the pages of a fashion magazine, it’s easy to forget that “fashion” is a word with two meanings. The first, obvious meaning is similar to “style” and indicates the latest favored way to dress, accessorize, etc. The second meaning implies creativity and improvisation. Like: he fashioned a canoe out of a hollow tree. In this year’s fashion issue, we marry those two meanings. No, we’re not including sewing patterns and tips on where to find the best fish bones out of which to whittle needles. But we are showing how secondhand clothing can look just as sexy, stylish and up-todate as the freshest shipment to hit mall racks. This is good news at a time when many—maybe even most— women can’t afford to expand their wardrobes. The photos on the following pages feature models wearing nothing but items from some of Maui’s consignment boutiques, so you can see for yourself how easy it is to look fabulous despite the fact that you’re on a budget. So get creative. That is, after all, the meaning of fashion.

Hole foods Grab a dozen at Wailuku’s friendly neighborhood doughnut stand ccording to “Doughnuts: A Definitive History,” an article from the Web site of the authoritatively dubbed Mr. Breakfast (with a name like that, how can we not believe him?), those little circular bits of deepfried goodness trace their origin back to Dutch pilgrims, who called


Dad’s Donut Shop Opens at 6:30am Mon.-Sat. Central Ave. & Vineyard St., Wailuku 244-3303

them olykoeks, or “oily cakes.” (As someone who spent a half-year in Holland, I can attest to the locals’ fondness for pastries, which may or may not be tied to their famous social policy regarding cannabis. But I digress.) The name and shape of the modern doughnut, Mr. Breakfast tells us, come from a 19th century sea captain who allegedly disliked the nuts that his mother baked into the center of his olykoeks and so poked them out. (In another version, he poked the

holes so he could hang the cakes on the helm of his ship. Neither version explains why a grown sea captain was still getting his lunch packed by Mom.) Now, whether any of that history is wholly—or even partially—accurate, I can’t say. That’s because I cut short my intensive doughnut research and got down to the more enjoyable business 0f eating the things. Where did I get them? Why, at Dad’s Donut Shop in Wailuku (that popular variation on the spelling would make an excellent topic for Mr. Breakfast’s next essay). Situated at the corner of Vineyard and Central, Dad’s is a walk-up stand with a couple of service windows and a sign featuring the smiling, pipe-smoking visage of Leonard D. Hart, creator, we are told, of “the original recipe.” There’s no seating, so the joint is takeaway only. (Really, who sits down to eat doughnuts?) They serve some pretty decent coffee, plus sandwiches, smoothies and a few other things, but come on—you’re here to find out about the doughnuts. First a piece of good/bad news: they’re small. That’s good because it makes an excellent little package, something you can hold easily in your hand and polish off with a single bite (two if your boss or girlfriend just walked in the room and you want to appear polite). But it’s also bad, and you already know why: small desserts—

and that’s what doughnuts are, no matter how we may try to dress them up as a meal—are an unavoidable invitation to keep eating. “It was so little,” you say innocently to yourself. “I think I’ll have one more.” Of course that one turns quickly to six, at which point, in addition to being quite full, you will have sampled most of Dad’s flavors: plain, cinnamon, powdered sugar, chocolate and four glazes—guava, lilikoi, mango (my favorite) and maple. Other than their respective coatings, the doughnuts are all basically the same: dense, slightly nutty and about the size of a child’s fist. (Hmmm, maybe not the most appetizing example.) Wailuku is full of businesses and government offices, so it’s a great place for a doughnut shop. Behind almost every door is some young employee looking to get on his coworkers’ good side, or maybe a cranky old traffic cop jonesing for a 2pm sugar fix. Either way, choose Dad’s. They’ve got the best oily cakes in town. MTW

Prime time Maui’s own A Kettle Prime scored a big Mainland gig. Hear them before they fly away hemistry determines quality. This is apparent in cooking, where bad timing or getting a portion slightly wrong can throw off an entire dish. In relationships, lack of chemistry is a death sentence. In music, chemistry is the immeasurable element that makes it good. Without it, all you have is a mass of sound and fruitless effort.


A Kettle Prime Next gig: Saturday, March 7 at Mulligan’s on the Blue, Wailea Web site:

But when it works, you know. You just know. Half the time, accident has no small part in turning a decent song into one that gets you high. Kihei rock and roll outfit A Kettle Prime has a chemical equation that works well enough to get them booked solid on 6th Street in Austin during South by Southwest, the music conference and festival that inspires a global pilgrimage by serious music fans. (Except for me. I have to work.) A song doesn’t make A Kettle Prime’s repertoire without unanimous band approval. For them, a song is a collaboration among the four musicians who make up the band, each of whom puts his own “stamp” on it. For them, a song is a conversation.

They call themselves a jam band, but their sound is more complex than that. True, their songs are long—at a recent show they even strung together a few of them for a 20 minute-plus jam they call “The Sandwich.” True, lead guitarist Peter Hamilton strings together rambling improvised guitar solos, sometimes switching it up with a moog or keyboard lead. True, Hamilton, rhythm guitarist Lake McClain and bassist Tim Rausch have a few dozen effects pedals among them; some they use sparingly and others, like the wawa and the delay, they use quite a bit. But their original tunes marry jam band grooves with a darker, I might even say almost metal-inspired, sensibility. McClain’s deep vocals verge on Jim Morrison-esque, but it’s obvious that he’s not imitating; it’s just the way his voice sounds. And unlike most male vocalists of his ilk, he doesn’t do that Eddie Vedder thing where you add unnecessary rsounds at the end of each phrase, which is probably the most overdone vocal effect in the history of rock and roll. Rausch’s solid bass lines are what give A Kettle Prime’s tunes their weight. Overall it’s a sound that’s inspired; a sound that derives from a musical concept that is, paradoxically, formless yet tangible. Their influences are diverse. Rausch lists the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as the Doors, Floyd and Zeppelin. McClain, originally from the South, places Robert Johnson and Widespread Panic among his many musical progenitors. Drummer Jonas Troxell was at first inspired by punk, but has delved into rockabilly, among other things. Hamilton says that he spent most of his youth delving into Bob Marley, the Grateful Dead and Phish, which comes through clear as a bell when he plays.

All this makes for a pretty dynamic (and trippy) sound, a sound that caught the ear of an Austin-based music promoter. Austin is a long way from where A Kettle Prime began. They formed on Maui, and their first jam space was a small pavilion outside the Kihei VFW. They couldn’t play after dark and were often met with the disapproving stares of the vets that would go outside to smoke.

Now they play about once a month (a number of band members have families, work full time, etc.). They venture to the Lonestar State in mid-March. Ahead of their departure the band will hold a fundraiser from 4pmmidnight at Mulligan’s on the Blue in order to offset travel costs. Musical acts slated to play include Erin Smith & The Throwdowns, Ryan Robinson, Kanekoa and others. MTW

Cheer and loathing Teen cheerleader comedy starts strong, ends with a thud wo girl-crazy high school football players (Eric Christian Olsen and Nicolas D’Agfosto) ditch their Tourette’s syndrome prone coach (Phillip Baker Hall) and foot-

★★★ ★★★ Rated PG-13/90 min.

ball camp in favor of cheerleader camp where, amazingly, they fit right in. Initially there only to mock and seduce the earnest cheerleaders, our two heroes eventually grow to care about their cheer teammates and about cheerleading in general. The plot of Fired Up! is so simple and irresistibly sleazy, it could have

been used either as the plot of a Saved by the Bell episode or as the premise of a late night movie on Cinemax. What almost saves the movie is the smart-alecky screenplay by Freedom Jones. This movie knows how dumb it is and clearly wants to mock the tired clichés of cheerleaders-withhearts-of-gold-overcoming-opposingsquads-and-personal-differences movies, of which there have been far too many. I wasn’t a fan of Bring It On and neither is this movie, which teases the idiocy of that Kirsten Dunst “classic” in one priceless scene. Yet whether you have no appetite for pom-pom cinema or never miss a movie about the universal power of school spirit, you’ll likely find Fired Up! to be as surprisingly humorous as I did. D’Agosto and especially Oldsen are a funny pair and energize the movie when the wit runs dry. Imagine if Bring It On was invaded by the two lovable losers from Dude, Where’s My Car?, who proceeded to take over the film and mock every dumb thing that happens. That’s this movie. For a while, it works and the genuine laughs

overcome the eye-rollingly bad moments. Exactly what Hall, a distinguished actor, is doing in a movie like this I’m not sure. But he manages to milk laughs from a role that requires little beyond spouting profanity. Jon Michael Higgins, on the other hand, is one of the film’s secret weapons. His scenes as the psychotic cheerleader camp ringleader are a riot. The whole thing looks like it could’ve worked, had Jones written an ending Hey, what that wasn’t so flat. Much of the movie coasts on its (pardon the pun) cheerful attitude, funny one-liners and dumb-and-proud-of-it attitude, but the wrap-up is such a dud, you walk away feeling unsatisfied. As guilty pleasures go, this one is better than most. It looked like it was on its way to being a nice on par with the Harold

happened to the rest of their shirts? and Kumar films. Instead, you get the equivalent of a cheer routine that begins rousingly but ends with a smiling blonde getting tossed into the air, only to lose her focus in mid-flight and fall atop the pyramid pile, knocking all of her teammates unconscious.

A young New York City woman gets herself into debilitating credit card debt due to a grotesque shopping addiction, but manages to score a gig writing a financial advice column.

THIS WEEK’S PICKS When life gives you foreclosures… Saturday (Feb. 28), 10am-5pm, Pilina Building, MCC In these challenging times...wait, no. In light of the economic downturn…hmmm. The recession has a great deal of inherent…hey, um, can we talk about something else? I have bludgeoned myself with podcasts and other media concerning the economy for far too long. Written about it. Had debates. Found silver linings in the whole thing. Forgotten said silver linings. One thing we cannot do is let it define us. It’s much more convenient to view the situation and its symptoms as temporary conditions of our everyday environment and deal with them as such. In the words of Neil Young: “Don’t let it bring you down/it’s only castles burning.” The featured speakers at Saturday’s workshop—titled How to Thrive in a Time of Change—will discuss how not only to cope, but how to excel in rough socioeconomic seas. Conversations with God author Neale David Walsch and A Deep Breath of Life author Alan Cohen will share some apparently well-guarded secrets regarding seeing opportunities in challenges, becoming prosperous, etc., all in the context of the, sigh, current day. $75/$95 door.


For the ladies Saturday (Feb. 28), 3pm, Lahaina Civic Center It’s hard to write about an event like Saturday’s Women Helping Women benefit concert without touching on its reason for being. Yes, it’s one hell of a downer: in 2009 there are women on this planet who are victims of domestic abuse. It seems improbable that the capacity for such violence has not been bred out of the human gene pool. This is not the place to take a crack at the social and psychological dynamics that lend themselves to these occurrences, but it is an opportune space to show how you can help. Friends of Women Helping Women is putting this show on eight days ahead of International Women’s Day. Acts include Micah Wolf, Willie K. & Avi Ronen, Gail Swanson, Ernest Pua‘a and Dr. Nat & Willie Boughton. Not bad. Proceeds, of course, go to Women Helping Women, an advocacy group that seeks to help empower abused women by way of crisis hotlines and women’s shelters. You can find tickets at Shaka Pizza (Kihei), Pixel Printing and Office Center (Wailuku), Women Helping Women’s offices (Wailuku), Women Who Run with Wolves (Kahana) and Livewire Café, Maui Vintage Clothing and Office Mart (all Lahaina).

Show some jungle love

Barry well, then

Saturday (Feb. 28), 7:30pm, A&B Ampitheater, MACC

Sunday (Mar. 1), 11am-6pm, Keopualani Park Ampitheater, Kahului

The sign of the mighty Pegasus trumpets one thing and one thing only: the coming of Steve Miller and the musicians with whom he performs. Together, they are a force known as the Steve Miller Band. Over the years the band’s musical alchemy has rendered the influences of blues, rock and roll, psychedelic rock, jazz and other styles into gold. Classic gold. Miller’s fretboard prowess and skill at conjuring most catchy tunes is likely inherent, but one cannot deny the influence of the great guitar sorcerer Les Paul, who was Miller’s godfather when Miller was but a young guitar prodigy. SMB’s signature song is the 1973 tune “The Joker” (“I’m a joker/I’m a smoker/I’m a midnight toker…”). The song’s opening lines (“some people call me the space cowboy/some call me the gangster of love”) refer to personas Miller had adapted on earlier albums. Other well-known SMB tunes, for your nostalgiainducing pleasure, include “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me” and “Swingtown.” My favorite is “Wild Mountain Honey,” which I used to zone out to in high school (I’m 26, if you need proof that his stuff is still cool). Jesse Colin Young opens. $55/$65/$85/$125.

So many great minds get eroded beyond recognition by preoccupation with conspiracy theories. While the level of skepticism I maintain is ample, I just don’t think the clunky bureaucracy that is the U.S. government could ever get its act together enough to execute anything effectively, let alone something so vast. But the media? Maybe. We at Maui Time have been accused of a great many hilarious things. Among them is being somehow in cahoots with Mana’o Radio. Unless this means informing our readers when this listener-sponsored radio station puts together a show with a killer musical lineup, our accusers are dead wrong. I mean, check out who’s on the bill for this year’s Barryfest, which celebrates the memory of Mana‘o cofounder Barry Shannon as well as the station’s 7th anniversary: Eddie Tanaka. BrownChicken BrownCow. The Vince Esquire Band. Mojo Gumbo. Rio Ritmo. The Gail Swanson Band. Shall I go on? Tickets for this family-oriented event are available at Bounty Music in Kahului. $25/$15 keiki and kupuna.

There’s a difference between serenely accepting the inevitable, and passively concluding that something is inevitable when it really isn’t. This week the situation is more the latter than the former. You think you’re being enlightened and just going with the flow, because there’s no use resisting it, but what you’re actually being is passive and fatalistic. Your destiny, at least regarding this particular scenario, is still very much in your hands, and nowhere near decided. In fact, the only way the negative outcome you’ve anticipated is guaranteed is if you make it happen—by doing nothing.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) What would happen if you decided to start waking up two hours earlier every day? At first, you’d have trouble falling asleep earlier. You’d be very tired for a few days—then you’d adjust. Your body would recalibrate. Unless you had many ingrained habits resisting your new schedule, within a month it wouldn’t even be a struggle to get out of bed. The problem: many Aries give up before they really get going. You’re frequently thwarted by the growing pains of change. You’ve got plenty of willpower, but not much discipline. This week, however, you’re in luck: you’re apt to get a great lesson on how to convert the former into the latter. Pay attention.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Exercise your free will. Don’t fall into the mental trap of thinking you’re stuck with something and have no options. You may not love the options (or their consequences) and so might not have really considered them yet—but they’re there. If I were you, I wouldn’t give up so easily. Take a closer look at what might happen should you follow one of the other roads available to you. Where you’d end up isn’t as bad as you thought— and ultimately, it’s a whole lot better (in the long run, if not the short) than wherever you’re stuck right now.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Sometimes the best thing you can do is just butt out. You’re an expert at manipulating situations and manifesting the scenarios you want; naturally, you’re extremely tempted to try that every time. Maturity and experience will teach you (if they haven’t already) that occasionally it’s best to just let things unfold on their own. Often, they’ll play out exactly as you would’ve wanted them to—which means that any meddling on your part would probably have steered them straight off that course, and probably into a wall. Wisdom is knowing when to just shut up and let things run their course. Do you have that yet? Show me.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Just because you deserve the benefit of the doubt doesn’t mean you’ll always get it. Sometimes you have to work against people’s fears, and just plain prove them wrong, fair or not. It’s usually not that hard—unless you trip yourself up. The easiest way to do that, of course, is to get pissed off that they doubted you in the first place. Your anger and resentment will knock you on your ass more swiftly then their distrust ever could. Let it go. Yes, their misgivings are unfair and unjustified—but hanging onto that, instead of what you need to do—will just end up proving them right.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) In some ways we’re defined by who we love. It’s easy to love the popular, friendly, smart, beautiful people you know, but what about those who have a little more baggage, or didn’t win the good looks lottery? If you only love the pretty people, that says something about you—and it’s not particularly flattering. If you’re capable of loving people who aren’t as easy to adore, that says something, too. I believe you’re someone whose big heart is capable of loving lots of different kind of people, and the ones who probably need it the most are those who usually get it the least.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) I like to think that our purest instincts would cause us to habitually try to bring out the best in each other, but for some reason that’s so rarely true. Instead, we often seem to revel in watching others fail, flounder, or flail. That’s kind of shitty, especially when being encouraging, supportive, and inspiring would be much more likely to create a win-win scenario. This week, eschew schadenfreude and any other even slightly sadistic impulse you may have. Instead, try to elicit the best from the people you meet, and create that winwin scenario. Hopefully what goes around—your inspiring example—will also, eventually, come around.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Don’t give the beautiful people a free pass. A pretty face is sometimes license to behave very badly, and you’re in a position to discourage that kind of bullshit this week. A kind and generous soul is far more beautiful, in the long run, than just a perfect smile or amazing cheekbones. Hold out for that kind of beauty, the kind that’s honed through practice and spirit, rather than the one simply bequeathed in a gene pool lottery. Let the pretty people earn their way, at least this once. Don’t just roll out the red carpet and give it all away for free.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Every single human being gets depressed occasionally. It’s when we forget the stuff that could still bring us joy that we get into trouble. It’s best to try to keep really good track of those happiness-inducing things. If you haven’t yet fallen into a rut, you’re certainly teetering on the brink, and you don’t have an especially good grip on the joyful rope that could pull you out of it (or keep you from falling in). Luckily, many of the things that used to bring you delight are still capable of that. When all else fails, revisit them.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Someone defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. The inverse could also be true: doing many different things but expecting consistent and predictable results. That’s sort of the strategy you’ve employed, and I’ve got to say, it is slightly crazy. I’m not sure why you’re bewildered by the very varied results. To me, it’s a no-brainer: send out mixed messages, and you’ll likely get confused responses. Consistency isn’t your strong suit, I know, and I wouldn’t want you to become boringly predictable, but if you want to achieve the kind of success you’re aiming for, you may have to move at least a little in that direction.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) There’s no such thing as pure good or pure evil. Sure, actions can be wholly wrong or right, but something as complex as a person never is. Even a tyrant or a serial killer has had moments of sweetness, generosity, and kindness in his life, and even a saint has at some time or other been cruel. For most of us, of course, life is a series of small adjustments between those two extremes. I’d argue that a hundred tiny moments of pettiness, unkindness, or neglect can tilt the balance in the wrong direction. In fact, very rarely do we get opportunities at huge acts of kindness or cruelty. Since most of life is made up of these almost inconsequential little acts, make sure that most of yours steer clear of bitchiness, pettiness, or casual cruelty, and aim for compassion, humor, and love instead.

If you’re the parent of very young children, or work in a school, animal shelter, or asylum, you learn to treasure and relish the short-lived moments of peace and quiet. You’ve probably discovered that they can rarely be manufactured, but seem to happen randomly—and thus must be taken advantage of if and when they occur, without delay. It’s actually very spiritual in a way, because when your life holds that much chaos, over which you have very little control, it forces you to be very present, and just take each moment as it comes. I think—and the universe seems to agree—that you could stand to have just an ounce or two more of this kind of joyful pandemonium. Don’t resist it. It may just be your path to a greater, more sustainable form of serenity than you’ve ever known.
