LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR ON THE COUCH Re: The recent letter regarding candidate Don Couch [“Not Couching her opinion,” Sept. 25]: Your letter is full of inaccuracies and political attacks. If you had taken the time to find out more about Don Couch, you would know that he is a strong advocate of smart growth and supports water, infrastructure and affordable housing projects that benefit the entire community. Unlike your candidate, Don is able to work with people on all sides of the issues, from Maui residents to state and county agencies and the developers who invest in our islands. You can’t plan for the future if your entire platform is to roadblock every viable solution. You made a point of listing some of Don’s contributors on the Web site. I suppose if your candidate had any solid accomplishments to speak of he wouldn’t find it necessary to pad his site with this already public information. What you don’t mention is that Don Couch’s supporters also include many concerned citizens, regular folks just like you and I, friends and neighbors from all communities who believe in Don and know that he has the people’s interest at heart.

Thanks for giving readers advice about the candidates. One thing to keep in mind: During election season some candidates may tell various groups of voters whatever they think they want to hear. Sadly, this appears to be the case with one of the candidates you recommended to voters: Don Couch. What Don tells the folks at the Contractors Association or Chamber of Commerce just may not be what he’d like readers of Maui Time to think he stands for. I noticed that he has an ad proudly proclaiming that he “won” the South Maui precincts in the recent primary election and therefore the rest of Maui should respect that and vote for him. Like a true Republican, he forgot to mention that this “win” consisted of a whopping total of four more votes than Nishiki. According to a Maui News article, Couch’s biggest margin in the three out of five South Maui precincts he actually “won” was nine votes more than Nishiki. Decisive, right? One thing is for sure, if this is the way a candidate spins a four-way race

where Nishiki got 47.5 percent of the total vote and the nearest Couch came was 28.3 percent, we can only wonder how he would spin all of his other positions if he were elected. Oh yeah, Mr. Couch also spent a lot of hard earned developer contributions to get those 5,954 votes. Wayne Nishiki’s expenditures for his 9,993 votes? Basically zero: he ran on his record.

BUS FUSS Re: The Eh Brah! about the woman on the bus—why didn’t you just move to another seat if it bothered you that much? Maybe this guy’s B.O was from working a long day in humid Maui just trying to make a living. Maybe you don’t realize how many people living on Maui are homeless and can’t shower frequently. Most people are friendly and converse with each other while on the bus; would it kill you to talk story with a stranger? Instead of putting people down try to be more compassionate.

Rise of the machines As election technology blazes ahead, will voters get left behind? achines get a bad rap. In popular fiction— Terminator, The Matrix, 2001: A Space Odyssey—they’re always turning against us, rising up with cold precision to obliterate humanity. In the real world we personify gadgets just so we can heap blame on them—who among us hasn’t yelled at a frozen computer as though it were a petulant child rather than a box of wires and silicon capable of doing only what we program it to do? Given this pervasive cultural paranoia, it’s ironic that electronic


it was revealed that a rival outfit made a much lower offer. Either way, it looks like DREs are here to stay. At least one group of Maui voters isn’t taking all this lying down. They’ve filed suit, seeking to clarify the rules governing electronic voting and to ensure transparency and accuracy. A judge blocked their initial effort to prevent results from being transmitted over the phones lines, saying it was too close to the election to step in. But they’re pushing ahead in hopes that future elections won’t be clouded by technological doubt.

In the end, what do you hope to accomplish? There are two arguments. First, in order to use Direct Recording Electronics, they have to promulgate rules, which they haven’t done. They even have a section that says “DREs” and it says “reserved,” which means at some point they were intending to make rules but never did. If you look at the rules for all the other voting systems, they tell you what’s an appropriate marking, how it all works. Touching screens on DREs might seem to be self-evident, just like filling in a bubble, but it’s not necessarily. That’s why you need rules. Then there’s the use

“You don’t experiment with elections; you have to be certain that the technology works before you implement it.” voting machines have enjoyed pretty much a free pass. Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) devices have grown steadily in popularity since they arrived on the electoral scene in the mid-‘90s, despite concerns raised by some about reliability and the potential for tampering. In 1996, less than 8 percent of U.S. voters used a DRE system; in 2004 that figure had ballooned to nearly 30 percent. DREs have landed on Maui, as anyone who’s recently voted can attest. For the September 20 primary, machines provided by Hart InterCivic did the tabulating; they’ll do so again on November 4. A bit of background on Hart: According to the details of a recently unsealed lawsuit, the Texas-based company was accused by a whistleblower of lying to government officials about the security of its machines to get a piece of the $4 billion in funds freed up by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002. The company has dismissed the accusations as the ravings of a disgruntled employee and the suit has since been dropped on a technicality related to lawyers’ fees. Hart initially entered into a longterm contract with Hawaii worth over $40 million, but a state official ruled the deal must be re-bid next year after

We spoke with attorney Lance Collins, who’s representing the five voters, about the case: What’s the central concern behind this lawsuit? When all the votes are compiled, there’s no printout on Maui before the results get sent to Honolulu. And they’re sent to Honolulu through the telephone lines. Additionally, absentee ballots are never audited. They’re put into a sealed container and unless you can prove with hard evidence that there has been election fraud and that fraud would have changed the results, the Supreme Court’s case law prohibits [a recount]. So if the counts are sent to Honolulu and nobody gets to see a printout or any sort of verification, there’s a concern that it could be subject to tampering. [In 2006], it turns out that the telephone line used to transmit the results was active for 45 minutes. Given the amount of data that was being sent, even if you’re operating at slowest possible modem speed, it does not take 45 minutes to send. Of course there’s lots of explanations, and who knows? In 45 minutes all sorts of things can happen. The problem is that it’s all shrouded in secrecy. The whole point in having election observers is to ensure there’s no tampering. But here, the most critical part of the process isn’t subject to observation.

of the telephone lines. My clients’ position—and I think a clear reading of the law—is that telephone lines and the Internet are not permitted [to transmit results]. Ballot counting can only be done by transporting ballots, and transporting is different than transmitting. Is the fear more that the results will be inadvertently inaccurate, or that there will be intentional tampering? There’s a range of perspectives among my clients. On one end we have people who are concerned that the opportunity is there and there’s absolutely no way to oversee it or prevent it. On the other end are people who do believe there’s some kind of surreptitious, clandestine activity afoot and it’s very possible there are people in office who don’t represent the will of the majority. Are electronic voting machines inherently bad? Technology has historically been used in elections to ensure integrity and voter security. There’s nothing wrong with technology, as long as standards are met. But you don’t experiment with elections; you have to be certain that the technology works before you implement it. There’s no margin for error. MTW

Real homeland security Five community voices speak out on growing more of what we eat ichael Ableman, noted farmer, author, world traveler and lecturer, shared his thoughts on food with an afternoon audience at Maui Community College (MCC) last week, in a free event sponsored by the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM). Ableman, who manages the 120-acre Foxglove Farms on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia said that Maui “may be the most food-insecure place on the planet.” Eighty-five percent of Maui’s food supply is imported 2,500 miles, and soaring fuel prices mean a corresponding rise in transportation and food


If you think about our local economy, that visitors come with “discretionary income,” which is dwindling as people’s savings evaporate, you wonder what this winter tourist season will bring. Could our visitor numbers be down by 40-50 percent? If Detroit, Chicago, Oakland and other cities can grow gardens to feed the inner city poor, certainly we can create similar programs. With state and county budgets diminishing (another impact of the vanishing tourists) we should nevertheless search for funds to retrain unemployed workers in essential farming skills. And the county has to find the means to support the urban gardeners—with compost,

something they would be admitting to themselves that the problem is real. It’s clear that a significant portion of our island residents won’t prepare for a potential food shortage until the shelves at the grocery store are empty. It is essential that people on Maui who do understand the precariousness of our food situation develop a contingency plan for how Maui could respond to a food shortage. Food stockpiles (i.e. wheat, rice, soybeans, etc.) for at least a 2-3 month period should be developed until such time as the island is able to meet those nutritional needs from locally grown goods. We also need to incorporate food growing into the public school curriculum. Not

“It’s clear that a significant portion of our island residents won’t prepare for a potential food shortage until the shelves at the grocery store are empty.” costs. Despite the current equation, Ableman believes there is also great opportunity at hand. “You have soil, sufficient water, sun and a number of different growing climates,” he said. But many in our community are not aware of the precarious nature of our limited food stocks, estimated at only 7-10 days supply, should an unforeseen weather, political or economic crisis occur. I asked five respected Maui citizens to share their perspectives on local food production and what steps must be taken to ensure a sustainable future. Mark Sheehan lives in Haiku, where he has extensive gardens and fruit trees and grows much of what he eats. He is the former owner of Landmark Maui Properties and has been long active as a board member and past president of Maui Tomorrow Foundation. He recently formed their sub-committee to study Renewable Energy & Food Security and is the founder of a food blog, MS: Unless we begin to act now, there will be no more food. It’s hard to talk about the food dot without connecting to all the other scary dots. Like the rescue plan that was approved after another $150 billion of pork was added to the bailout—and then another $488 billion for the wars, all to be paid for with newly printed $600 billion!

community gardens, water, seeds, workshops, etc. A 20-by-20 plot can produce from a quarter to a third of a ton of food. That’s huge savings for our struggling local families. The mayor and the council members have to stop debating and make decisions. Zoe Norcross-Nu`u is a backyard gardener and mother to two preschool girls. She and husband Rick have been growing a variety of vegetables on their Kokomo hillside and also raise chickens. (She sent me a photo of her “solar dryer,” a tray of tomato slices dehydrating on the sunny dashboard of her Toyota Prius.) She teaches the Topics on Sustainability class at MCC, and attended Ableman’s recent talk. ZN-N: The first challenge with public education on unpleasant topics such as the looming potential energy and food shortages is reaching or developing an audience. Many people have enough challenges in their daily lives that the last thing they want is to hear or talk about more bad news. The second challenge is that even after people have been “educated” about the seriousness of these problems, many are likely to continue their lives as usual without adopting any changes. Perhaps this failure to act is because they believe that government authorities will come to the rescue in the event of an emergency, or perhaps it’s because by actually doing


only will the children benefit from being physically active and out of doors, it will also help them to eat more healthily. Knowing how to grow their own food may be one of the most important lessons we can share with our children. One simple thing people on Maui can do is to use edible landscaping wherever we can. Instead of decorative palms, plant coconut palms or banana trees. High-calorie foods are very important to grow. Sweet potatoes are very easy to grow and propagate—everyone should have dryland taro and sweet potatoes growing in their yard. Michael Howden is an Upcountry permaculturist and licensed acupuncturist who also serves on the Board of Water Supply and is a candidate for County Council. MH: I am greatly concerned with the massive, continued diversions of water from the East Maui Watershed, which is steadily deteriorating. Near shore waters and reefs are imperiled, streams are stagnant, and na kua’aina, the subsistence farmers of East Maui, have insufficient water to work with. The few million gallons per day

LC Watch “Hey, hey! What’s this I see? I thought this was a party. Let’s dance!” - Ren McCormack, Footloose Time to check in once again with Maui Dance Advocates and their ongoing battle to move rhythmically wherever they so choose, free from the capricious oversight of our friends in the LC. Faithful readers will recall that the group—led by Ramoda Anand and assisted by local attorney and former LC Adjudication Board member Lance Collins— has been fighting for some time to force the commission to alter, or at least clarify, its vague, murky rules on dancing. For those new to the subject, the rule in question (8-101-23) reads in part: “Any dancing or entertainment provided shall be in areas designated and approved by the director.” Dancing outside said areas is prohibited and punishable. The question of course is, what exactly constitutes dancing (a head bob, a toe tap, a leg wiggle?) and— oh yes—what about that little thing we call the First Amendment? MDA has tried and been denied before, but credit them with tenacity. In a complaint filed September 30, the group once again asks the circuit court to step in and recognize the blatant constitutional violation that’s being committed. The plaintiffs are seeking attorney fees and an invalidation of 8101-23. We’re not placing our money on things changing overnight, but a readthrough of the very concise complaint (it’s four pages long but could easily have been a few sentences minus the requisite legalese) really leaves no room for interpretation or parsing. This is free speech 101 here; the LC would do well to give the constitution a quick read. Hey, don’t worry guys, you don’t have to wade through the whole thing—it is after all the First Amendment. -Jacob Shafer

ROBREPORT SECURITY: continued from page 6 (mgd) to be returned to these streams is insignificant compared with the average of 156 mgd taken daily. How do we return public trust waters to our communities? How do we develop access to public lands that can be used for meaningful diversified agriculture? How do we move into the reality of feeding ourselves? I really appreciated Michael Ableman’s attitude of “can do,” rather than the “no can” we mostly see from government entities. Michael is largely self-taught, very articulate and eminently practical, urging us to take charge and move forward on our own. We need to learn from our own communities, from kupuna and malahini alike, what can be done, how we can restore natural flows of wind and water, how we can restore native dryland forests, how we can better manage our watersheds. Working together for the common good is foundational in such a shift. If we keep sitting around, complaining and waiting for others to begin, the opportunities of this moment will continue to elude us. We need to begin at home: less consumption of imported foods (and packaging), less use of fossil fuels and other nonrenewable sources of energy, more conservation, more staying at home and building from our community base of resources.


nity to grow our own food by creating community gardens, working in partnership with landowners through leasing of lands to feed the community. I plan to introduce legislation that will support our small farmers and provide incentives to small businesses that invest in locally grown crops. We also need to work with the big boxes such as Costco and others to encourage them to purchase locally grown agricultural crops so we keep our dollars here in Hawaii. We know that water is our most precious resource. By restoring our streams, we restore life. We need to understand how our (host culture) ancestors managed resources then use these methods to educate and to ensure that our natural resources are protected and utilized for the purpose of life, such as food for the people.

Vincent Mina is the founder of Maui Aloha `Aina (MA`A) Association, whose eighth annual Body & Soil conference is coming up this weekend. Vince and his wife Irene raise sprouts and other “nutrition dense” foods at their Kahanu `Aina Farms in Wailuku. VM: We’ve known for years that we bring in the majority of our food from the Mainland, yet this year marked a turning point when suddenly the price of fuel and petro-chemical fertilizers went through the roof. I feel it marks a defining time in the changing of paradigms. The extractive petro chemical paradigm is dying. Farmers who have relied on inexpensive chemical fertilizers and pesticides now need alternatives to grow their crops in order to remain in business and produce a viable crop.

Organic or “Bio-logical” farmers continue to improve their strategies to maximize the nutrient density and yield while increasing soil fertility on the farm. We use cover crops, alley crops and compost to assist in building mineral-rich, biologically alive soil. This system allows a farm to recycle its nutrients while producing high quality food and yields without depleting the soil. Understanding this concept in agriculture is what the Hawaiians termed Aloha `Aina. You give to the land and the land will give to you. MTW Agricultural viability and local food security will be discussed Oct 11-12 at the Body and Soil Farm and Garden Health Conference. There is a free pre-conference event at the Maui Electric Auditorium Oct 9, 6-8pm. Visit or call 242-7870 for more info.

It said, “What’s organic today: rice, kale, red potatoes.” I pointed out the sign to the deli worker. His response: If we sold red potatoes they would be organic but we put nonorganic russets on the hot food bar. This is very deceptive.

The ashram-museum in Ahmedabad devoted to India’s highly revered icon of freedom Mahatma Gandhi recently reinstalled a replica of the spiritual leader’s personal toilet, in that Gandhi’s own hygiene-consciousness was such a part of his legacy. It is said that he cleaned the toilet daily and referred to it as his “temple,” but ashram officials had removed it in the 1980s as somehow inappropriate, according to a September dispatch from New Delhi in London’s Daily Telegraph. Gandhi had written that “a lavatory must be as clean as a drawing room.”

When Eric Aderholt’s house in Rockwell County, Texas, burned down in June, it wasn’t because the fire department was too slow. They arrived within minutes, but none was aware that local hydrants were locked. Apparently, departments know that hydrants in rural areas have been shut off, as part of post-9/11 security, and must be turned on with a special tool, which no one brought that night. Texas law even requires shut-off hydrants to be painted black, but the firefighters still arrived without the tool, and by the time they retrieved it, Aderholt’s house was gone.


Bernard LeCorn, running for the school board in Ocala, Fla., declared himself the best-qualified school steward among the three candidates because of his “doctorate,” but the Ocala StarBanner discovered that not only was it from a well-known diploma mill (cost: $249), but that Alabama A&M, a real school where he had claimed to be a faculty member after receiving bachelor’s and master’s degrees, had never employed him and had enrolled him for only one year.

In fact, Shepard seemed innocently happy when a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter told him in August that he had looked into the case himself and that Shepard would be released soon.

Jose Rivera, 22, survived two tours in Iraq but back home in California, he took a job at the high-security Atwater federal prison, where officers cannot carry even non-lethal crowd-control weapons, and Rivera was murdered 10 months later by two inmates armed with handmade shivs. “Every single inmate in there is armed to the teeth for his own protection,” complained one officer, but a Bureau of Prisons spokesman told CNN in August that “communication” with inmates is a better policy than even modestly arming guards.

A defiant Israr Ullah Zehri told the Associated Press, “These are centuries-old traditions, and I will continue to defend them,” despite condemnation by Zehri’s colleagues. “Only those who indulge in immoral acts should be afraid,” Zehri said.



murdering his wife with a fireplace poker and is now serving a life sentence, but his former neighbor, Larry Pollard, is certain that Mrs. Peterson was killed instead by an owl gone bad. Pollard offered voluminous information about owls to buttress his theory, but acknowledged earlier that no feathers had been found at the scene. However, in August, the State Bureau of Investigation disclosed that one “microscopic feather” was on a clump of hair in Mrs. Peterson’s hand. Shouted Pollard, “(T)he feather has been found” (although it was likely a household speck of down).


Tina Fey is such a talented woman, it’d be a shame if she’s remembered only for her spot-on Sarah Palin. But, for better or worse, the impression really is potentially career-defining—it’s that good. Fey’s latest Saturday Night Live appearance as McCain’s bespectacled number two was a send-up of the VP debate. While it didn’t quite reach the hilarious heights of previous installments that lampooned Palin’s role as a “feminist” icon and her inept interview with Katie Couric, it still represented some of the best material SNL has produced in quite a while. And predictably, it became an instant online hit.

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1 Happy October, everyone! Let’s celebrate another turn of the calendar by reaching into our always unpredictable e-mail grab bag and examining this entry: Folks at the University of Wisconsin saw fit to send me a release titled “Fighting a Different War.” It quotes an antismoking doctor at the school who is “alarmed” by the number of U.S. soldiers who are coming home from Iraq addicted to tobacco. Hmmm. Sure, respiratory health and good teeth are fine things, but is this really the issue that needs urgent attention re: the troops? Cigarettes— that’s the aspect of this fiasco, the one that’s cost trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, we’re going to denounce? Really? OK then.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 2 Here’s something to follow: The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case involving over 1 million acres of land on Maui and the Big Island formerly owned by Hawaiian royalty that the state wants to sell, as reported in The Maui News. Native Hawaiians have made claims on the land, and last January the Hawaii Supreme Court imposed an injunction preventing the state from doing anything until those claims are settled. The high court won’t rule on the matter until next year, but however it breaks it’ll be a huge turning point in the Hawaiian Sovereignty struggle.


OCTOBER 9, 2008


FRIDAY OCTOBER 3 Lower the bar enough and it doesn’t take much to clear it. That’s probably the single biggest lesson to be gleaned from last night’s vice presidential debate, which I’m told garnered American Idol-level ratings. I guess that’s a good thing (fostering civic involvement and all that), but here’s betting at least half of those who tuned in did so primarily to see Sarah Palin fall on her face (perhaps literally—those stripper heels she wears look pretty precarious). In the end, what we got was a series of canned, memorized responses (and I use that word loosely, seeing as how Palin didn’t exactly respond so much as she recited) and carefully timed, mildly creepy winks. Oh, and she is almost certainly the first Veep to give a “shout out” to some school kids and to drop “Joe Six Pack” (a moniker that was invented as a derogatory put-down, by the way) into one of her answers. More and more, Ms. Palin is looking like some random lady that won a contest—“Who Wants to be a Maverick?”—and is just sort of whimsically going along for the ride. It’d be funny if it weren’t so damn scary… In other news: With Dad sitting pretty a month out from the election, Maui’s own Shane Victorino is making headlines on the Mainland as his Philadelphia Phillies blaze through the playoffs. Last night Shane clubbed a pair of doubles, stole two bases and, just for kicks, hit a grand salami to pull Philadelphia within one win of the National League Championship Series.

SATURDAY OCTOBER 4 “We’d love to conserve water, but it’d be bad for economy.” That, in a nutshell, is what representatives from Maui’s big resorts told the County Council at a meeting yesterday—and they bought it. Reversing course on a conservation proposal that would have limited outdoor irrigation, the council caved to the demands of the luxury hotels and voted 61 to pull the bill back for further “discussion.” Perhaps because she’s not running for re-election and has very little to lose, Michelle Anderson was willing to vote alone—and to speak the truth. Quoted in The Maui News, she said that further exemptions and compromises could make the measure completely ineffective. “There isn’t anything in this bill that would provide an economic hardship to anybody,” she added. Look, the Maui economy, as currently constructed, leans heavily on tourism. Tourists like to stay in big fancy resorts with lots of lush tropical looking plants. We get it. But the water shortage is real and pressing, and fixing the problem will require sacrifice. This place is paradise whether we irrigate Wailea or not. Maybe it’s time for some serious re-ordering of priorities, rather than head-in-the-sand business as usual.


A Republican governor, or a killing machine sent from the future?

SUNDAY OCTOBER 5 So I attended my first Maui County Fair yesterday with the wife and wee one. It’s funny how county fairs are county fairs wherever you go; the particulars change a bit by region, but some things stay comfortingly consistent: rickety, nauseainducing rides; hopelessly rigged but impossible to resist carnival games that force you to spend $20 on a $2 stuffed rhinoceros; greasy grub that’s deep fried whenever possible; a tent full of farm animals that smells like, well, a tent full of farm animals… in short, good old-fashioned fun.

MONDAY OCTOBER 6 Man, those corn syrup people don’t let up. On the heels of the e-mails I mentioned last week, I got a snail mail packet of propaganda-er-information titled (and this one even made me, a guy who’s never met a pun or play-on-words he didn’t like, gag): “And Now, A Little Food For Thought.” It’s full of lots of “helpful” information that may or may not claim corn syrup is the cure for cancer (I skimmed). The veracity of their claims aside, what really amazes me is that one little caption

in one little newspaper set off a response of this magnitude. Guys, corn syrup is in everything—you’re winning. Time to dial back the PR spin cycle a notch or four.

TUESDAY OCTOBER 7 As noted in the AP “this date in history” thing printed in today’s Maui News, we have arrived at the five-year anniversary of California’s decision to recall Governor Gray Davis and elect in his place Arnold Schwarzenegger. Much like folks of the previous generation with JFK’s assassination, I can vividly remember where I was when I heard the news: Heading to the movies in my car with the radio on. I winced, but immediately tried to convince myself it wasn’t that bad. Then I arrived at the theater, bought my ticket and walked into the lobby—only to be confronted by a giant Terminator video game, the top of which was outfitted with a larger-thanlife recreation of our newly elected chief executive’s head replete with glowing red eye. It was a low moment. Say what you will about Gov. Lingle—at least she hasn’t embodied a murderous futuristic cyborg… yet. MTW

Quick update on Hawaii Tourism Authority CEO Rex Johnson, whose ongoing travails have repeatedly garnered ink in this space. (Quick recap for the uninitiated: Johnson got into trouble for forwarding naughty messages on the company computer and was slapped with a pay cut; then the Honolulu Advertiser got its hands on the e-mails and ran a story, leading to umbrage from heavyweights like Gov. Lingle that forced the board to reconsider Johnson’s employment status.) Over the past week-plus, HTA has twice delayed a hearing on the matter, citing an inability to get enough members to line up their schedules and fly in from neighbor islands. However this turns out, you’ve gotta think Rex is already a loser because of the indigestion this career uncertainty has most certainly caused. MTW

OK, so they deal in natural gas and not jet fuel—still, pretty shrewd career move to go from an industry that’s hurt by rising fuel costs to one that reaps the rewards.

Those who thought they’d never see the return of the $3-andchange gallon of gas were proven wrong this week. With prices falling statewide, several stations on Oahu started offering four quarts of fuel for under $4. Drivers on Maui weren’t treated to that dramatic numerical alteration, but they did enjoy a price drop of 16 cents per gallon compared with last month—bringing the average per-gallon cost down to $4.51, according to AAA figures. Diesel dropped even more dramatically on the Valley Isle, declining 29 cents a gallon.


With Hawaii’s—and the nation’s—summer of economic discontent officially in the books, the grim numbers start pouring in. This set comes courtesy of Oahu-based consulting firm Hospitality Advisors: Overall, state hotels saw revenue plummet $136 million from June to August over the same period last year. Of that loss, $92 million came from room revenue and $44 million from food and beverage, spa, retail and other services.


Traditional Swedish…$75 Lomi Lomi…$85

The arrow’s pointing up but this one’s debatable. As everyone including the oft-mentioned man under the rock knows by now, the House followed the Senate’s lead and passed the bailout bill version 2.0; Bush—eager for a photo op featuring him looking proactive and presidential rather than like a lame duck in the crosshairs—promptly signed the thing. Hawaii reps Mazie Hirono and Neil Abercrombie both sided with the “ayes” this time around after helping defeat the initial proposal. Quoted in Pacific Business News, Hirono said, “The emergency financial rescue package… while far from perfect, contains noticeable improvements over the proposal we considered Monday.” Biggest difference: the last one was a bailout, this one is a “rescue package.” See?

Ba-Le high Vietnamese eatery has new Wailuku digs, same great grub rea herbivores seeking lunchtime options in Wailuku: I have some good news and some bad news. Bad news first. Pho is never, ever, ever vegetarian (unless otherwise indicated or served in Oregon). I found this out


Ba-Le 1824 Oihana St., Wailuku, 249-8833

upon attempting to order tofu pho from Vietnamese sandwich and plate lunch joint Ba-Le’s newest location in the old Sweets & Treats building in Wailuku. Pho—the classic broth-based Vietnamese dish served with loads of herbs, spices, noodles and your choice of meat—only comes with beef stock. The good news: you have other options. The menu at Ba-Le has a formidable list of veg items. A recent visit involved the tofu sandwich, which fellow vegans should remember to order sans mayo. It was served on a miniature baguette with strips of fried tofu, fresh veggies, kimchee and an array of tasty Vietnamese sauces. Another appealing option is the avocado sand-

wich, which, as of press time, I have yet to try. The sandwiches here are the shape of a football and nearly the size. Meat eaters, I begrudgingly concede, have a seemingly endless array of sandwich options, from ginger chicken and beef teriyaki to the “special,” which consists of pate, ham, headcheese and steam pork. Veg items go beyond sandwiches at Ba-Le. Their summer rolls are some of the best I’ve come across on the island (which may put them in the running for best worldwide). Their components, which include fried tofu and carrots, are chopped into tiny pieces and fried, then stuck with fresh herbs in a rice wrapper. The sauce is killer, plus they have additional Vietnamese sauces of varying spiciness that you can add before hauling your order back to the office. On one occasion I tried the tofu noodles, which were pretty killer. They basically consisted of the same components as the tofu summer rolls, except instead of being rolled up in a rice wrapper they’re laid out over rice noodles alongside a bit of lettuce and a handful of fresh herbs. The latter two entrees are listed under the “bread/specialty” heading, which also includes headcheese by the pound. Dare of the day: look up headcheese if you don’t already know what it is.

On the flipside, Ba-Le has a huge selection of coconut milk-based tapioca. The papaya flavor is inlaid with bright chunks of said fruit. Other flavors include honeydew, chocolate, sweet potato and taro. Omnivores have even more dessert options, including flan custard and rainbow Jell-o. I’m focusing on lunch here, but the friendly staff at Ba-Le sling saimin, opakapaka and tofu alike through the dinner hour seven days a week. Lunchtimers may be pleased to know that they don’t have to haul their orders back to their frigid, fluorescent-lit offices if they don’t

want to; there are tables outside if you desire to do lunch in the sun. Ba-Le is one of the most versatile eateries I’ve come across in a while. Given the crowd it has consistently drawn at its new Wailuku location, it may soon find itself a mainstay for herbivore and omnivore alike. MTW

Religious satire that isn’t The Da Vinci Code

the best rewards

are enjoyed one bite at a time.

Another Roadside Attraction Tom Robbins I first read this during a formative time and recently reread it, maybe for a bit of a refresher. Marx Marvelous is an ex-think tank employee who happens upon a roadside zoo that isn’t really a zoo at all, save for a flea circus and a preserved tse tse fly. Amanda Ziller, the young and extremely sexy clairvoyant who runs the joint alongside her silent musician husband, becomes Marvelous’s muse. Meanwhile, Plucky Purcell, a friend of the Zillers, gets entangled with a secret order of Catholic assassin monks somewhere in the forests of northern Washington State. The brotherhood heads to the Holy See for a conference, during which a catastrophic earthquake reveals the vast treasure hidden in the Vatican’s catacombs including one skeleton that, if removed from the closet, may spell the end for Western civilization. Purcell makes off with the mummy (guess who) and brings it to the zoo. Robbins draws on a vast base of religious, historical and philosophical knowledge here, which both enhances and occasionally bogs down the narrative. I recommend this to agnostics and others who may need to see organized religion get a well-deserved pummeling.

James Morrow We’ve all heard the following Nietzsche quote: “God is dead.” While the German philosopher is referring to the death of the idea of God and the moral order associated with it, Morrow’s novel deals with the death of a physical God. As in, a dude with a long white beard, a couple of football fields in height, keels over and tumbles into the Atlantic Ocean. A retired oil tanker captain, haunted by his role in the Exxon Valdeez disaster, is tapped by the Vatican to tow the deceased up to the Arctic Circle, where the angels have dug a tomb out of a glacier. Morrow can at times get heavy-handed with allegory, but given such a premise, symbolism is ripe for the pickin’ here. Can you imagine what would happen if the ship’s crew found out about the precious cargo? And can we apply this to humanity? I think we can. Towing Jehovah deals with the physical death of the creator/overseer, but much like Nietzsche, what Morrow seems to really be getting at is the death of the idea of god, its implications, how to go on living despite the absence of an enforcer.

Lamb Christopher Moore The full title of this novel is Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal. A swiftly paced and lighthearted read, Lamb is told from the viewpoint of Biff, who grew up with Jesus (Josh) and was there during the missing years. Biff and Josh first meet at age six, when Josh is repeatedly bringing a dead lizard back to life. Since Biff is resurrected in modern times by a soap opera-addicted angel to tell his side of the story, the author has full license to throw in all kinds of slang, a notion with which Moore was clearly having fun. For example, at the opening of the novel, Mary (whom all the other mothers think is nuts) tells Josh’s younger brothers that Josh “is truly the Son of God,” to which the boys say, “Oh, jeez, Mother,” and “Yeah, jeez, Mom.” Moore has a lot to work with, given Christ’s lost years. It’s Biff’s job to fill us in: “This Matthew fellow, who is obviously not the Matthew that we knew, seems to have left out quite a bit. Like everything from the time Joshua was born to the time he was thirty!!!” Its pace, humor, and subversive nature make Lamb quite an addictive read. MTW

Skin-deep ‘Body’ Slick CIA thriller entertains but doesn’t enlighten n Ridley Scott’s war on terror thriller, Leonardo DiCaprio plays a CIA agent who infiltrates terrorist cells in the Middle East while his bureaucratic superior


Body of Lies

★★★★★ Rated R/128 min.

(Russell Crowe) assists him stateside, attending his kid’s soccer games as his young operative is putting his life on the line. This cutting detail—the politicians enjoy their cushy lifestyle while the real heroes are in harm’s way—is as political as the film gets. Like DiCaprio’s Blood Diamond, this is a slick Hollywood thriller that uses

immediate, deadly serious world issues as fodder for mass entertainment. This is not one of Scott’s best films but, for the most part, it’s at least highly entertaining. Despite the urgency of the subject matter, there’s a lot of familiar movie moments, like the scene where info off a computer is downloaded quickly (while the PC’s owner is about to walk in the room); or when the “cavalry” saves the hero at just the right moment; or the love interest you can spot from the moment she first walks on screen. The movie is sometimes overly self-righteous—there’s a scene, late in the movie, with dialogue right out of a Toby Keith song, where DiCaprio gives Al Qaeda a verbal tonguelashing and even spits in the head terrorist’s face. Go U.S.A.! It’s all very crowd pleasing, if a little Hollywood phony. The opening moments feel as though we’re in the middle of the story, as there are no establishing scenes of the characters and we’re in the action immediately. Likewise, the film ends on an open-ended note, which is fitting for the material but won’t please everyone. But after the estab-

Our new secret weapon in the war on terror: heartthrobs.

lishing satellite spy views and ample explosions, the film grabs hold of you. DiCaprio gives a showy, hardworking performance and comes off like the new Jack Ryan, while Crowe is amusingly hammy and has a great opening monologue; their scenes together are fun to watch.

There are stand out set pieces, like a remarkably staged land and air desert chase, a funny family dinner date (a nice diversion from the violence) and the brutal, incredibly tense climax. It’s as good as The Kingdom but doesn’t cut as deep as Traitor. MTW

t’s pretty tough to go wrong with bluegrass. The genre’s sun- and moonshine-soaked sound seems to fall nicely on the ears of a demographic vaster than the Great Smokies. Anyone who’s been on Maui for a piece has probably come across Haiku Hillbillys, the Upcountry outfit that puts a Maui spin this mountain-born genre. Fronted by Randall Rospond, the ‘Billys have played as a three-piece as well as a full band for five years. They usually have a steady gig at Hana Hou Café in Haiku, and Rospond can often be found jamming at Mulligan’s on the blue in Wailea. Rospond and crew will take the stage at Charley’s in Paia this Friday to celebrate theeir latest release. The disc comprises 12 original songs the band recorded at various places throughout Maui, both live and in the studio. While Rospond calls the band’s style “bumpkin,” those expecting a fullblown hoedown this Friday may want to leave their washboards and clay jugs on the lanai.

The ‘Billys may incorporate some bluegrass elements into their songs, among them staccato mandolin strums and 1-4-5 chord progressions, but by no means are they riding on Ralph Stanley’s coattails. Tom Conway (of Gypsy Pacific fame) adds electrifying, jammy guitar leads throughout, and violinist John Pollock enforces the band’s roots with winding solos between verses. Drummer Jimmy C provides solid beats that give another dimension to some of the disc’s tracks. Two instrumentals, “West Kuiaha” and “Kahakuloa Sunrise,” are aptly named tunes that evoke images of landscape. Fans of Dylan, New Riders of the Purple Sage and the Allman Brothers will certainly enjoy themselves this Friday, though I have a feeling the Haiku Hillbillys have accrued a following in their own right.

aula Fuga loves Maui. It’s been two years since Maui Time caught up with Fuga, and in that time she’s played at the Maui County Fair, the Maui Arts and Cultural Center and thrown a music festival, the Lilikoi Fair, at Mulligan’s on the Blue. But it’s not just the rainforest that draws her here; it’s our music scene that she prefers. “No other island roots harder than Maui,” she says. “The people of Maui are leagues ahead of Oahu on supporting new music. Oahu folks expect covers, but the Maui people really truly love original music.” Fuga’s career began just over four years ago in a whirlwind that included a cameo appearance on American Idol as a rejected auditioner. That experience led to her meeting her business partner, Spencer Toyama, starting her own label, Pakipika Productions, and releasing her first album, Lilikoi, in 2006. Now she has just come off of touring with Jack Johnson on the West Coast. “I never would have been invited by Jack if I hadn’t been promoting myself and playing on the West Coast,” she says. “A lot of artists don’t take that risk. Early in my career I had thought that playing Kapiolani Community College music festival was the pinnacle. So after I did it, I thought, where do I go from here? I had to reevaluate. Now the sky is the limit. As far as my music will take me, I will go.” Right now Paula is working with the ten piece roots band Dubkonscious and looking forward to releasing their first album, At the Foot of the Mountain, produced by Punahele Productions. Fuga is deep into the underground reggae music scene in Oahu along with about a dozen other roots bands that play regularly. These bands don’t have any commercial backing, no mainstream radio play, no large scale distribution connections. There is also an underground support network forming with the Hawaii Reggae Guild and KTUH, the University of Hawaii Manoa student radio station. “Without this support we wouldn’t even be a movement,” says Fuga. “Compared to the number of people on

Oahu the movement seems small. But on Maui people are really into it.” The music industry has a reputation for being image driven and money hungry, a business that promises overnight stardom if you look the part. Rather than get caught up in this, Fuga says she makes the music that comes from her heart while trying to please her hardest critic: herself. During a recent trip to the Kauai Music Festival, many artists asked her how to get their music out. “They were in disbelief when I tell them they have to promote themselves,” Fuga recalls. “Everyone thinks Hollywood is instant, and you will become famous like magic.” She says next year she is coming back to the festival to head seminars to teach musicians to drive their own destinies, to encourage more independent labels, and more self-promotion. “I see the light at the end of the tunnel and I am in control of it. I am active in the music scene and I don’t want to lose momentum,” says Fuga. “I can look over a contract and I can negotiate a contract.” Fuga is currently working on a new album, writing songs, revisiting poetry and meditating on past and present experiences. “I am really sensitive—I don’t let anyone listen to my drafts. If any songs are in an unfinished state, I am not comfortable playing them in front of anyone,” she says. Paula says Lilikoi was inspired by falling in love and winning her man’s heart. “Now that I won the guy, this next album won’t have as many love songs,” she says. “But I am really looking forward to writing about what is important to me.” She is not the only one looking forward to her new songs. Jack Johnson’s label Brushfire Records is onboard to collaborate and offer studio time, as are some of the members of Jack’s team including producer Robert Carranza and bass player Merlo Podlewski. Paula is committed to her musical independence, and making it all work within the reach of her own diligence. “Success for me is how I am able to grow as a person,” she says. “I don’t look at myself as a musician first, I am a person first. If you only look at a dollar amount as success then you are already unsuccessful.” Friday, October 10, 9pm, Mulligan’s on the Blue, Wailea, 874-1131

He is probably one of the most accomplished musicians to come out of Maui, but at the moment music is keeping award-winning guitarist and singer Willie Kahaiali’i (better known as Willie K) a little too occupied to rest on his laurels. In the past decade he has released eight records and won ten Na Hoku Hano Hano awards. He also plays pretty much any festival that occurs on Maui. With his talent comes versatility; he is able to play in pretty much any mode you throw his way be it blues, classical or slack key. This week he plays two shows on island. The first takes place Sunday at Maui Mall as part of its free autumn concert series. (We’ll forgive MM for dubbing this “ a super shopper event with Willie K.” This time.) The show will benefit Hui O Wa’a Kaulua, a nonprofit that Uncle Willie heads. The following Wednesday Willie K brings his tunes to Mulligan’s on the Blue in Wailea for a 21-and-over set.

omewhere at this very moment there is a young woman ascending a small stage, plugging in her guitar and adjusting the mic stand to suit her height. She may commence fingerpicking, reciting T.S. Elliott’s The Wasteland over power chords or playing a theremin with her tongue. No matter, for when the night is done the same old tired comparisons will fly: Jewel, Alanis Morrissette, Sarah McLaughlin. It takes a lot for female singer-songwriters to overcome the swift pigeonholing they usually endure, but Maui Battle of the Bands 2008 winner Erin Smith doesn’t let it faze her. She may take the stage in a party dress and high heels, but Smith says she’s a rock and roller through and through. How did you get started playing? I started playing violin when I was really little. We have one of those great big, sprawling, musical families. So I did violin until I was about fourteen… I didn’t really pick up guitar until I was seventeen or something, because I kept being the lead singer in bands and I was getting bored. When did you start writing music? There’s a handful of terrible songs from when I was like, you know, ten. But you just develop… I started seriously playing my own songs out and about in mid-high school. Have you been playing out the entire time you’ve lived on Maui? When I first got here [four years ago], some buddies down here were really cool with me. I hadn’t been here three days before I played a gig at Neptune, so it was kind of like “here we go.” At that point I’d been touring in Canada and the northeastern States and Europe for years. So where are you from originally? Toronto. What brought you here? Probably about the same story as everyone, you know? You have some kind of connection out here that pulls you. Did you always envision having a band to back you up? I’ve been a really lucky girl with that stuff. I had a great band in Canada and I have a great band here. I like being

able to play on my own and with the band, but it’s totally two different things. I write a song a certain way on my own or just with a bass player. But then when you get the whole band, you know, that stuff’s got to be slammin.’ My band here—they’re great guys and they’re super-talented and really energetic and animated. My bass player, Kimo [Clark], jumps around; he’s got this whole “hit the ceiling before you hit the note” philosophy. And my drummer [Ian Hollingsworth] just gives ‘er. When you set out to write a song, which usually comes first, music or lyrics? Music first. On rare occasions I’ll have lyrics first. It’s funny that you ask that, because the boys are always waiting on me. I was complaining to my friends the other day that I had to go sequester myself at home because I was four songs deep in completely finished songs without lyrics. What are you usually writing about, lyric-wise? I’ve been getting into writing about my own life, and that’s going to be reflected on the newest record, but I’m largely a story writer. I tend to make things up. Who are your primary influences? I’m real big on PJ Harvey. I’m real big on old jazz. I’m really big on the Strokes and stuff like that… I get a lot of comparisons to PJ Harvey and Fiona Apple— informed comparisons—it’s not just somebody saying “you sound like Jewel.” Constant comparisons to other girl artists just because they’re girls must be irritating. But I think girls are making headway in music. At the same time, I’ve gotten compared to all the popular ones under the sun. Some of them are so laughable, and people mean it as a compliment. Which ones do you get most? Jewel. I’ve had situations where people are like, “Play some Jewel!” And I’m like, “Well, I know how to play Tool.”

What challenges do you face as a singer/songwriter/performer on Maui? Well, I’m not a “Margaritaville” /”Brown-Eyed Girl” kind of player. I’ve stuck to my guns on that, and people have been really, really good to me. I know that it’s not the ideal situation for certain gigs—some of the hotel ones and stuff— they need more familiar music. You seem to play out constantly. Who or what has contributed most to your success? Other musicians. There’s a great musical community. People are more willing to help around here. They want to have a strong music community. How do you respond to your detractors? There’s a comment on our Web site complaining how ridiculous it was that a girl in a white dress and high heels won Battle of the Bands. Well, that’s just stupid. It’s not even worth acknowledging. I don’t feel like I’m a girl musician. I feel like I’m a musician. It’s not like it was Battle of the Bands and I’m up there with a tear in my beer singing sappy love songs into my acoustic guitar. It was a rock and roll show. Were you surprised when you found out you won the Battle? I wasn’t surprised, not that I expected us to win. We threw it down as hard as we could. The other bands were really good, and a lot of them were buddies. Everybody was so good that anybody could have won that. So many people I talk to bemoan the supposed lack of a music scene on Maui. What do you have to say about that? I think, as with everything, it is what you make it. There’s stuff happening; you’re just not going to trip over it every two feet like you would in a city. Keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground and you’ll find it. Friday, October 10, 9pm, Mulligan’s on the Blue, Wailea, 874-1131


OCTOBER 9, 2008









ince 2004, Pukalani-based hardcore punk band Order of the White Rose has been bringing its political message to stages on Maui and beyond. The band is playing a Pacific Cancer Foundation Benefit this Friday, and their latest 7-inch single “Ghosts of the Sidewalk” is available at Requests in Wailuku (all proceeds from sales of this record benefit food banks on Maui and Oahu). We recently caught up with Nate Robertson and Steve Hart (bass and guitar, respectively):


f you dipped into San Francisco’s electronic music scene in the ‘90s chances are you were impacted by Mark Farina, the multifaceted DJ responsible for the genre-bending Mushroom Jazz series who blew in from Chicago and infused the West Coast with his infectious sound. Fortunately for music lovers everywhere, Farina has spread his influence worldwide, touring voraciously and packing houses wherever he goes. His new record is set to drop later this month and he’s slated for a MushroomFest Maui stop-off on October 10. We caught up with Farina to discuss the evolution of electronic sound, the Maui house scene and the future of the industry. How did your love of music first develop? I played the trumpet all through grammar school; I was into concert band type of stuff, musicals and marching bands. The first couple of bands I got inspiration from were Rush and the Police. The first show I went to, in sixth grade, was Rush on their Moving Pictures tour. What prompted you to leave Chicago for San Francisco? I’d been playing in Chicago for quite a while, that’s where I started. I was into the whole Chicago house sound. All the DJs there at the time had to throw their own parties—the DJs were the promoters. So me and some other DJs like Derek Carter and Gemini, once we got over throwing parties for ourselves, we went to California and there were actually people throwing parties who weren’t DJs. You know, actual promoters, which was new for us. Also, the party scene in San Francisco at that time was just crazier than Chicago—there were parties going all night, all day. Chicago has more normal club hours, midnight to 4am. People would usually go home before sunrise out there, you know, 5am and the night’s over. Which is good in some ways. But in San Francisco there was just this hunger for the music that really drew me out there. Also, at the time the Chicago house sound was pretty new, so it was kind of fun to represent this new sound. Did your sound evolve after the move? In San Francisco people were into different sounds, different tempos. Chicago is mainly into a certain tempo, break beats, like a 125-130 beats per

minute. In San Fran you can change tempos a lot more; that’s where I developed the jazz sound. It allowed me to do different things. What’s your take on the Maui electronic scene? I’m lucky to have been coming there for quite a while; I definitely have a special vibe with the place. I think the people understand my sound. It seems like there’s a real appreciation for good music [on Maui], maybe even more so than Oahu. I’ve played Oahu the same amount, but it seems like there’s a bit more of a house crowd on Maui. So much has changed in the record industry over the past decade-plus, in terms of the way content is created and delivered. What are your thoughts on where things are headed? We’re still in a transition period. I came from a big record store background, where you hang out in the record store and get tunes. But that culture’s kind of dying. It’s a digital world these days. I’m undecided on the whole digital thing. There’s definitely advantages—things get out quicker, you can do it from home, you don’t have to deal with distribution anymore. But I also find it takes away from the physicality of having a piece of vinyl, something with a cover you can look at and hold. Digital files are a lot more abstract. This whole iPod culture, it’s just different. Growing up, if you didn’t go out and party, all you could get was the stories. Now, you could theoretically listen to the DJ at home, and have kind of an experienced club life without going out. Which is a weird concept.

Do you think your unique position— being a political punk band on Maui— limits you or gives you groundbreaking potential? NR On one hand we are sort of cut off from the continental US—it’s not like we can jump in a van and go on tour. On the other hand, Hawaii is possibly the best place to be as far as playing political music goes. There is a growing amount of people concerned with the issues that we find important and address in our music. For instance, we all have seen the super rich coming in and driving real estate prices through the roof and how this affects all of us. We support the Hawaiian Sovereignty movement and self-determination for the Hawaiian Nation. SH I think there is a shortage of venues to play on Maui for any band that plays mainly original music. [Yet] there is a huge potential to do things that haven’t been done before. I am currently working on developing a plan to start an all-ages space similar to the Gilman Street Project. There are details of this plan on our MySpace page. This would help our local music scene and encourage more kids to play music. How does a band in such a remote spot make its mark on the national scene? NR We toured the west coast in 2006 and are planning another tour right now. Networking tools like MySpace are extremely helpful. Having our music up on iTunes and a variety of other download sites helps too. SH If we are to make any “mark” at all, we have to make great-sounding records with excellent songs. If any band wants to be played on the radio, they have to send the radio stations a CD and a press kit; if it sounds simple it is because it is. I get emails from people all the time saying they heard us on their local college station or on Pandora. It takes an effort for any band to get


their music heard. You don’t need a street team, you just need to get off your butt and do it. What subject provides the most fodder for your lyrics? NR A lot of our music lately has focused on indigenous people and groups around the world. We are influenced by the literature of the Native Hawaiians, Native Americans, and the Mayans in the Chiapas region of Mexico. SH Our first record, War Machine addressed the Iraq war through a variety of perspectives. I don’t think we wanted to do that again. Currently, we’re focusing on what is happening right now through imperialism and colonialism in Hawaii and elsewhere in the world. Some of the most leftleaning punk rockers out there in the world have no idea that Hawaii was illegally overthrown or annexed. It’s not written about in world history books. Are you getting a lot of inspiration from current events? NR Yes. This president has done more harm than any other in my lifetime, including President Reagan. Look at the how the Patriot Act was forced upon America and tell me our freedom isn’t being taken away piece by piece. SH I’m not so much inspired by it, I refuse to become a person who is solely reactive to the national political discourse. It is up to us to be proactive and dictate to them what we the people want, not react to what they do or say. I’m not just going to write songs reacting to their insipid political platforms—that would make for some bad music and I’m not interested in doing that.

Yes, you heard right: Kool & the Gang is coming to the MACC. This means that those aching to boogie can, for a certain price, finally find relief. The band started out as purely a jazz outfit, but evolved over the years to embrace rhythm & blues, funk and, yes, disco. A few of their instantly recognizable tunes: “Celebration,” “Jungle Boogie” and “Get Down On It.” Oh and, according to (yeah, I know), their 1979 tune Ladies Night inspired a longstanding tradition of ladies’ nights for bars and dance clubs in New Jersey. Hey, thanks guys. KB


f you belong to my generation, your first exposure to Styx may have been Cartman’s rendition of “Come Sail Away” in an episode of South Park. I first heard them on a Chicago rock and roll station at age 12 (I place no chronological limitations on my musical preference). In any case, by way of tunes like “Lady,” the aforementioned “Come Sail Away” and “Renegade” as well as four consecutive platinum albums (from 1977-1981) this Chicago-based band has managed to prove exemplary of an era defined by big hair and even bigger (i.e. hugely theatrical) songs. This Friday, Styx comes to Maui for the first time for a performance at the MACC. Two of the band’s original members— James Young and Tommy Shaw—are part of the lineup this time around. In Greek Mythology, the River Styx circled the underworld and all of its residents nine times. Condemned souls were ferried across it by Charon. It is also used in some Christian images of Hell, namely in Dante’s The Divine Comedy. The word stygian can be used to describe anything hellish or gloomy.

Wednesday, October 15, 7:30pm, Castle Theater, MACC, 242-7469

Given the dismal implications of this mythical river, it seems unlikely that a band known for its top of the world, arena rock ballads would choose Styx for a moniker. Then again, it’s doubtful that a band whose best-known songs include “Mr. Roboto” takes itself too seriously. While the mythical river circled Hades, so, too, has the band with which it shares its name continued to circle the globe for years. Bassist Ricky Phillips, who signed on with the band in 2003 upon the departure of Glen Burtnik, says that Styx is on the road nearly 200 days a year. This year has proved to be a busy one for this quintessential ‘80s rock outfit, as they have been out all year; first with Def Leppard, then with Boston. They head to Japan in March 2009. “That’s the way it is these days,” Phillips said, speaking with us from his home in Austin, Texas just ahead of a three-night turn on the Ontario side of Niagara Falls. The band’s fan base, he said, has changed quite a bit over the years. Phillips concedes that Guitar Hero may have something to do with a recent surge in the band’s popularity among people who were pre-embryonic during the band’s heyday. “It’s great that the kids care enough [to come out to the shows],” he said. While bands often tour to promote a new release and adopt some kind of theme for the road, Philips said that touring has become a way of life for him, his band mates and the crew—a way to “keep the family together.”

“The theme is ‘this is who we are; this is what we do,’” Philips said. “We have a crew we love… we lean on each other so much. We have a brotherhood within the band.” Hardcore fans may want to get their fill of the deep cuts before heading to the show. “We always do a real hit-driven set,” Phillips said. He added that they may delve into some of their recent material, including a cover of The Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus,” which spurred Big Bang Theory, an entire album of covers. Friday night’s Maui performance is one of three nights they’ll spend performing in the Hawaiian Isles before they take a wellearned break. Make sure your lighters are in top shape for this one.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Forget being efficient and getting a lot done this week. Ignore the Virgos, who work as if they four arms and two heads and can do twelve things at once. Multitasking is just not your friend right now. In order to get anything accomplished, be single-minded. It’s okay to have a long list of items on your agenda, but only tackle one at a time, and don’t get upset when you don’t get as far down the list as you’d planned. Working faster than a steady pace, you’d likely spread yourself too thin, and end up doing a halfassed job. Remember, having to re-do something you screwed up will end up taking way more time than it would have to do it slowly and carefully the first time around.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) There’s no question you’re hot. You can probably seduce whoever you’d like; the combination of your charisma and confidence are very hard to resist. The real question is whether you should. Remember, ethically, you ought to make an effort to leave anyone you’re involved with (on whatever level) at least a little better off than how you found them. When considering drawing a new person or three into your tangled web, keep that in mind. What beautiful gift will you give them that they can take with them as they move forward through their lives?

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) With fuel supplies tight where I live, it’s become an expensive, time-consuming pain in the ass to fill up the car. There’s a cynical part of me that’s glad; for some people, nothing else would encourage them to honestly assess how much they actually use their vehicles, or to consider other options like carpooling, public transport, or biking. This kind of thoughtful conservation is where we should be at, anyway; it’s simply too bad that it takes a fuel shortage to get us there. Sometimes people need a little push to change their ways. Luckily, this week, you have the power to give it to them.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Your plans are dough, rising. The best thing you can do right now is to simply leave them alone. They should be able to carry on entirely free of your interference. There’s a right moment to dig your hands back into them and help the process along, but you’ve got to be able to recognize when that is. Getting prematurely involved could royally screw up the process, forcing you to start from scratch again. I know it’s difficult to resist the temptation to keep checking on things, and trying to help them along; nevertheless (unless you want to set yourself up for loads of frustration and needless hard work), that is what you have to do.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) 808-873-6121

You know what you like. It’s actually pretty specific. So why are you willing to delude yourself that something totally different might do in a pinch? Forcing yourself to like something has never worked before. Why the hell would it be a good idea this time around? You’re just setting yourself and the others involved up for a huge disappointment and a lot of wasted time. It’s kinder to just nip this in the bud, admit that you’re never going to go there, and move on to something or someone that will actually be able to hold your interest.



The problem with being so adaptable is that it’s easy to be whatever’s expected of you—for a while. However, this kind of flexibility only gets you into trouble, because sooner or later your real personality, needs, and desires will surface. In the end, you have to create your own boundaries and stay more or less true to yourself. It’s okay to bend a little; compromises are inherent in virtually every kind of relationship. However, you must stop yourself from going too far. Just because you can bend over backwards or twist yourself into knots doesn’t mean you should.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Anything goes as long as no one gets hurt. I give you permission to use this Full Moon in your sign to explore the wildest aspects of your nature—as long as you also take pains to make sure you keep everyone involved from getting hurt (emotionally or physically), including yourself. That shouldn’t require more than an extra step or two, or a word here or there. These are simply steps you shouldn’t skip, and words that shouldn’t remain unsaid. Once they’ve been done and said, though—go nuts. It’s going to be a blast. I, for one, can’t wait.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) I’m a big fan of taking calculated risks. That’s why I’m advising against this one. By my calculations, shimmying further out on that limb isn’t worth the jeopardy you’d put yourself in. Sure that apple on the furthest twig is the ripest and juiciest on the whole tree, but it’s really only slightly riper and juicier than the one you’ve got right here. Why risk life and limb for something you may not even get (even if the branch doesn’t break, you could knock the apple down), and may not be perceptibly better than the sure thing you’ve already got? Unless you’ve got a better answer than I do, I suggest you quit while you’re ahead.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) I hate it when people put shit off with the excuse, “I’m just waiting for the right moment.” The vast majority of the time, there are no “right moments,” except those we create. Sometimes one happens, but we don’t realize it until after the fact. The only consistent way around this is to trust in yourself and just make stuff happen, in your own time. You know this. However, this week, there might actually be a few perfect opportunities you can recognize in time to take advantage of them. I’m not too worried; if you miss one, I know you’re perfectly capable of creating your own. But keep your eyes open. Catching a few of these could put you well ahead of the game.

OCTOBER 9, 2008


Make a decision and stick to it, already. All this hemming and hawing is pointless and unnecessary, and likely to piss people off. Also, don’t get flustered when they get impatient with your desire to engage in needless debate. For whatever reason, you’re feeling wishy-washy. Please try to ignore this feeling. None of the choices you’re making are all that important or earth-shattering. They certainly don’t merit this kind of thought or indecision. Just pick something, arbitrarily if necessary, and stick to it. Even if it turns out to be the “wrong choice” later, it’s still not that big a deal.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Your ruling “planet,” the sun, is in the sign of balance, Libra. Use this time to work on bringing equilibrium to your life. You don’t want your ego to be so big that it presents an obstacle that keeps you from real connections with other people. But recognize that it’s also a source of strength, and you need to tap into it sometimes. Being a cowardly lion might be endearing to some, but not so much to the people you prefer to attract. Stick up for what you believe in, make noise when necessary, and keep your little kingdom running smoothly.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Might as well make yourself comfortable. You’re going to be “here” for a while. You’re stuck in a spiritual traffic jam that’s likely to keep you from getting anywhere fast. Simply turn off the engine, get out and stretch your legs, and look for someplace to pee. Avoid getting frustrated, impatient, trying to figure out what the “problem” is (it’s nothing you can solve right now), or feeling anxious that you’re missing something important. You are where you are. Make the best of your circumstances, and if you get bored, take the time to plan what you’ll do when the congestion clears up, and you’re able to hit your top speeds again. I’m not sure you really know where you ought to go once you can go anywhere at all. Do you? If not, this is the perfect time to figure it out.
