I don’t know about you, but I positively dread opening the newspaper these days. Wars are raging out of control; governments are powerless to help victims of floods and earthquakes; gasoline prices are racing to the moon. These are, to say the least, troubling times. The Barbarians are at the gates and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are riding closer and closer. Something must be done! We need new policies! We need new leadership! We need a new cabal! Look, there’s nothing personal here. I’m the first guy to say that the Illuminati, Skull and Bones, Freemasons and Bilderbergers have just done a bang-up job manipulating the world’s wealth and power. For centuries, they’ve run our affairs, maneuvered our leaders and started innumerable wars for personal gain and profit with lots of subtlety and class. But hey, times change. The star chambers, secret societies, committees and families we’ve got running the world just aren’t doing that hot a job right now. There’s just so much unease and tension

in the world right now—and I’m not just talking the Middle East, Central Africa and South Bronx, either. Change is in the air. It’s the dawn of a new era. The time has come for new policy directions. I’m sure people were saying stuff exactly like this back in the Middle Ages, when the Knights Templar were starting to get a little long in the tooth. It’s not like that didn’t happen to the Rosicrucians, either. Or the Priory of Sion. And I know for a fact that when it came time for the Merovingians to pack it in, they hemmed and hawwed but eventually passed the torch to a new generation. After all, these things happen. I’m sure the Rothschilds would love to run things for all eternity, and they’ve certainly done wonders with the banking stuff, but I really don’t expect them to be the go-to people on stuff like Hurricane Katrina relief and rising levels of mercury in our oceans. Now I don’t know what the protocol is for these things, whether the Illuminati bylaws stipulate formal elections, appointments, reading animal entrails or what. But I do know we need new blood at the top. MTW

(888) HONOLUA To the woman driving the blue van down Shaw Street in Lahaina two weeks ago: you suck. You must know that you hit me, a pedestrian, as you hurried past me. How can you not know? There I was, walking to work in the morning and minding my own business when you came by. Now there are no sidewalks there, forcing pedestrians like me to walk in the street. And I know that there was a car coming the other way, just as I was trying to walk around a truck parked on the side of the road. Had you been a good, conscientious driver, you would have waited four, perhaps five seconds for me to make my way around the truck and get out of your way. But no—you couldn’t wait, and sped around. As you did, your right side view mirror hit me. Surely you saw me waving and gesturing furiously as you drove off, totally ignoring the fact that you hit me. Thanks so much for ruining my day before it even began.



Less Than Complete Victory An open letter to Congressman Ed Case

Honorable Congressman Case, Man, did you see President George W. Bush’s speech the other night on Iraq and terrorism? What am I saying, of course you did. Anyway, it scared the hell out of me, sitting there Oct. 6, watching our president for another three years talking about the war in Iraq as though it’s an episode of Band of Brothers: “[W]e must recognize Iraq as the central front in our war on terror,” Bush said. “We will never back down, never give in and never accept anything less than complete victory.” I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He explicitly compared the radical Islamic terrorism we’re “fighting” to Communism five times. And that “In Iraq, there is no peace without victory” line was straight out of Douglas MacArthur’s corncob pipe.





At first, I just dismissed it as the ramblings of an out-of-touch hick influenced far too much by neoconservative suits unschooled in the world’s complexities. But then I remembered that what Bush was saying was almost exactly what you—an intelligent, well-spoken Democrat—have been saying. “After a series of meetings with top government and military leaders from the U.S. and Middle East countries and troop visits throughout Iraq,” was how your office’s Sept. 6, 2005 press release put it after you got back from visiting our boys and girls in uniform, “Case said there is relative stability in most of Iraq, but an adequate continued U.S. presence is unavoidable in order to fully transition government, military, police and reconstruction responsibility to the Iraqi people and defeat an insurgency clearly receiving support from al-Qaeda and other external entities.” Iraq has “relative stability” but still requires a “continued U.S. presence” to “defeat an





insurgency.” Sounds like the president to me! I know you toured the country. I know you talked with our top generals. I know you visited our troops. But seriously, what the hell are you talking about? I don’t have to visit Iraq to see it’s a mess. The Kurds in the north have all but declared their “Kurdistan” to be a separate nation. They’ve essentially been their own nation since we slapped a no-fly zone over Northern Iraq in the early 1990s. And why shouldn’t they leave? All Saddam ever did was gas and slaughter them, and besides, they’ve got plenty of oil and would be quite prosperous as an independent nation. How serious are they? In January, 2005 two million Kurds went to the polls—1.96 million of them voted for independence. What does that tell you about Iraq’s long-term chances for cohesion? As far as the rest of Iraq is concerned, the two top Shiite parties in the ruling government coalition are strengthening their ties to Iran. They are busying themselves building not a democracy but an Islamic state. Somehow, I don’t recall seeing that in the President’s speech or your press release. As far as the Sunni terrorists are concerned, they’re targeting a lot more Shiites than Americans these days. Theirs is largely a sectarian war, killing Shiite merchants and workers in a bid to inflame civil war passions. The fact that dozens of innocent Iraqis die for every American seems to indicate our relative ineffectiveness at stemming this violence. As Peter Galbraith has pointed out in an excellent series of New York Review of Books essays, the Sunni terrorists can’t win. Despite Bush’s rhetorical nonsense that an American pullout would leave “Zarqawi and bin Laden in control of Iraq,” at most, just 20 percent of the Iraqi population agrees with them. Why do you think Sunni terrorists are hitting the Shiites so hard? Because the Shiites are in charge now, and they have an awakened population free of Baathist control behind them. Too bad we seem to be doing little to help out the Shiites hold onto their power. In his speech Bush had the temerity to say, “Today there are more than 80 Iraqi army battalions fighting the insurgency alongside our forces.” Yeah, “alongside.” That’s because U.S. CENTCOM Commander General John Abizaid and General George Casey, who commands all U.S. forces in Iraq, told Congress on Sept. 29, 2005 that just one Iraqi battalion is at full strength and capable of operating independently. One. A few months ago they were insisting that three battalions were at full strength. In the long term, this is probably irrelevant. Once we leave—and we will leave with some-




thing less than a Jeffersonian Democracy in place—Iran will move in and then the real Sunni-Shiite war can begin. Congressman, with all due respect, you were there. You had to have heard these assessments. Yet I’ve yet to hear any public comment from you on any of this. Look, if present trends continue—and all our top generals are unanimous in saying they will—then the number of American troops killed in Iraq will pass the 2,000 mark sometime in November. How many more servicemen and women are you and Bush prepared to “sacrifice” before you realize that our war just isn’t working? MTW

Cunning Lingle WHAT GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE SAID IN AN OCT. 11, 2005 PRESS RELEASE ON HER DECISION TO RELEASE $603,850 IN STATE FUNDS TO PAY FOR THE DESIGN OF THE NEW KOHALA PUBLIC LIBRARY ON OAHU: “Public libraries enrich our communities by providing valuable educational resources for children, as well as gathering places for lifelong learning.”

WHAT SHE DIDN’T SAY: Back in August of this year, when it came time to release $4.5 million in state funds to help the struggling, deteriorating Makiki Community Library on Oahu, Maui’s former mayor wasn’t interested. First she said that giving the money to the library “isn’t in the best interest of the state taxpayers.” Then she tried to pass the buck, saying that since the library is located in a city-owned building, the city needed to take care of it. -ANTHONY PIGNATARO


OCTOBER 20, 2005




WEDNESDAY, OCT. 12 Whoa! No less authorities than the Pacific Business News, Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu StarBulletin—all of which have reported many, many times that the wholesale gasoline price cap will never work— are reporting today that this coming Monday, gas prices should drop 44 cents in Hawai’i. Incredible. “This is a very good sign that the law is working as intended,” House Majority Leader Marcus Oshiro told PBN. Unbelievable. The reason for this wonderful change, should it actually come to pass? “Recent decreases in mainland oil markets,” reported the Star-Bulletin. Astonishing. Imagine that—once the insanity and carnage caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ends, the price cap actually starts working.

THURSDAY, OCT. 13 Good news everyone: The Maui News is reporting today that all work on the Kaheawa wind farm over by McGregor Point has resumed. It stopped because state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) inspectors found that construction practices weren’t up to specs. And with a big storm on the way a couple weekends ago, they were afraid runoff would tumble rocks and whatnot onto the Pali and the reef below. But now, according to the News, everything’s back on track and work on the windmills has begun again. The only problem with the story is that it’s pretty much incomprehensible to anyone who just reads The Maui News, because the News never reported that the DLNR had ordered a work stoppage at the wind farm site in the first place. In fact, just

one paper reported that little revelation, and it was the one you’re reading right now (see Cheryl Ambrozic-Mooz’s “Tilting at Windmills” in our Oct. 6, 2005 issue).

FRIDAY, OCT. 14 There’s a big run at Bankruptcy Courts all across the country this weekend, according to today’s Advertiser. A record 102,863 Americans—up from an average of 30,000— fell over themselves last week trying to declare bankruptcy before new draconian rules take effect on Oct. 17. Those rules, signed by President George W. Bush in April, make it all but impossible for regulartype working people to declare themselves insolvent and get out of crushing debt. Why would Bush do such a thing you might ask? Well, mostly because the already fantastically wealthy bankers and credit card companies wanted him to, and they’re, as he’s so eloquently described, his “base.” Thank God Bush, in his infinite wisdom, decreed that big corporations like Aloha Airlines can still declare bankruptcy and dump thousands of employee pensions onto the federal government, where loyal workers who spent decades at Aloha will be rewarded with about half of the retirement money they were promised was coming.

SATURDAY, OCT. 15 Maui residents seem to like to recycle stuff. Lots of them are turning in their old glass bottles, so much so that local recycling industry guys are having trouble keeping up. “We have just been expanding like crazy,” Aloha Glass Recycling President Tom Reed says in today’s Maui News. Plastic bottles, too. In January of this year, people turned in 862,111 plastic bottles to get their nickel deposits back. By June, that number had soared to 7.16 million. These are especially astounding numbers considering that

and bombed 70 Iraqis into oblivion, more than half of which appear to be innocent civilians. Nice to see our desire to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is as strong as ever.

MONDAY, OCT. 17 Halloween is fast approaching, and you know what that means! That’s right—the first anniversary of the sailboat Dolphin wedging itself onto the reef a few yards off Front Street in Lahaina! Oh what a magical time it was: owner drinking with a million other people in town as a south swell churned just off shore… not long after the steel-hull Dolphin—which the owner had just bought and wanted to rename the Technicolor Dreamboat—dragged its anchor and ended up parked on the reef. And there it’s sat ever since. But not for long, according to today’s Maui News, which says state officials want to pull the 20-ton boat off the reef and sink it off Puamana Beach Park with the old Carthaginian II. It sounds optimistic, but they want the ship underwater sometime around the end of the year. While great for scuba divers, this will leave Lahaina Harbor with no great ship to gaze at—no rotting Carthaginian and no wrecked Dolphin.

TUESDAY, OCT. 18 recycling on Maui is kind of difficult. There’s no island-wide curbside program but people are, on their own, saving their bottles and cans and hauling them to redemption centers. For recycling advocates, this is all great news, except that the county wants to build a giant trash incinerator in Central Maui that would pretty much negate whatever recycling habits we’re currently nurturing. There are people driving around with bags full of plastic bottles trying to help out, and the county still insists on dragging its feet on curbside recycling. Oh, if only recycling required a massive facility with a huge price tag that required 30-year bonds to pay off and the risk of municipal bankruptcy. We’d be recycling like there was no tomorrow.


Boy, I thought those sharpies over at Aloha Airlines had everything under control: declare bankruptcy and dump their 3,000 employee pensions into the loving arms of the U.S. Treasury, then everything will be fine. Apparently not—today’s Associated Press story says Aloha also wants to void all its labor contracts. One of the reasons Aloha is trying to balance its books on the backs of its employees? “Fuel has gone up $1 a gallon since we began our discussions with the union,” said Aloha spokesman Stu Glauberman. Yeah, those rising gas prices will get you every time… except here on Maui! Dude, they’re down to $3.33 a gallon! Yeah, prices dropped last night, just like the state legislature said. It’s so surreal—when I look at the gas station signs, I almost feel like I fell into a time warp and woke up in June.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD HOT AIR In September, nine-year veteran weathercaster Scott Stevens of KPVI-TV in Pocatello, Idaho, resigned to pursue his obsession of proving that the massiveness of Hurricane Katrina must have been caused by a Russian-made electromagnetic generator employed by the Japanese Yakuza in retaliation for the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The “patterns and odd geometric shapes” in the sky are “unmistakable” evidence, according to his Web site, that “our weather has been stolen from us.” Station manager Bill Fouch said that Stevens was great at forecasting local conditions and that he was sorry to lose him.

WEIRD MATING HABITS The longest-lasting copulation, according to University of Arizona biologist John Alcock (interviewed for an August Knight Ridder story), is that of the lowly “stick insect” (of the phasmida family), which goes on for several months at a time, even though, he said, it is “not clear this is welcome to the female.” The male attaches himself to the female’s back, which allows her to continue with her daily routine during the mating, while also discouraging competitor males. According to other biologists, some ticks spend up to eight hours on what resembles foreplay, and butterflies, snakes and houseflies can also go on for hours.

THE BUSINESS PSYCHIC Several psychics are hard at work advising Australian business executives, providing such things as “intuitive diagnostics” of personnel systems and detecting “blockages” of the organizational structure (for hourly fees as high as the equivalent of US$290), according to a June report in Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph. Psychic Sally de Beche advises clients based on her “holographic images” of the business cycle, and another, Stacey Demarco, a self-described “witch” (and author of the book There’s a Witch in the Boardroom), builds business networks that she terms “covens.”

LABOR DISPUTE A September sidewalk protest of a Henderson, Nev., Wal-Mart by the United Food and Commercial Workers (which seeks to unionize Wal-Mart, whose notoriously low wage structure is blamed by the union for low wages across the supermarket industry) was staffed by temporary workers hired by UFCW to picket in the hot sun for $30 for a five-hour shift. Said one picketer to the Las Vegas Weekly, “It don’t make no sense, does it? We’re sacrificing for the people who work in there, and they don’t even know it.”

There Goes Civilian Control Bush asks Congress for martial law


OCTOBER 20, 2005


LC Watch Not Quite Public Hearing


Soldiers brandishing automatic weapons, a defining characteristic of life in Third World dictatorships, have become commonplace at airports, bus and train stations, government offices and highway checkpoints since 9/11. Now troops are becoming our first responders to situations, such as natural disasters and flu outbreaks, which normally fall under civilian jurisdiction. Everything’s gone topsy-turvy: The National Guard, charged with keeping order here at home and legally under the control of state governors, has been shipped off to Iraq and Afghanistan, shanghaied by the federal government. Here in the U.S., whatever comes up, the Bush Administration’s first reaction is to send in the regular army troops who are supposed to be in Iraq. Whether it’s a sinister plot against American democracy or the most sustained large-scale foolishness in history, the Bush Administration is tearing down the traditional wall between overseas military action and domestic law enforcement. Creeping militarism leapt into full view with Bush’s Oct. 4, 2005 request to Congress to repeal the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which prohibits the use of the military in domestic policing except for the purpose of quelling a revolution. Citing the theoretical possibility that Asian avian flu, now only transmittable from bird to human, could mutate into a human-tohuman form, Bush said: “If we had an outbreak somewhere in the United States, do we not then quarantine that part of the country? And who best to be able to effect a quarantine? One option is the use of a military that’s able to plan and move. I think it’s an important debate for Congress to have.” Overturning Posse Comitatus would allow troops to break into houses and apartments and sweep the streets for flu victims, and forcibly contain them in Guantánamo-style camps. They could seal off cities or whole states. These extreme measures could also be deployed against U.S. citizens after hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, or even election disputes— whenever and wherever a president decides they are necessary. Bush laid the groundwork for his assault on Posse Comitatus on Sept. 26, when he explained his decision to unleash the 82nd Airborne upon Hurricane Katrina-devastated New Orleans: “I want there to be a robust discussion about the best way for the federal government, in certain extreme circumstances, to be able to rally assets for the good of the people.” The Louisiana National Guard, meanwhile, was stuck in Iraq.

Coming soon to a neighborhood near you? “The translation of this is martial law in the United States,” said Dr. Irwin Redlener, associate dean of Columbia University’s School of Public Health and director of its National Center for Disaster Preparedness. Redlener called Bush’s proposal to deploy troops on American soil an “extraordinarily Draconian measure.” Even Gene Healy, senior editor at the right-wing Cato Institute, said Bush’s proposal would undermine “a fundamental principle of American law” that “reflects America’s traditional distrust of using standing armies to enforce order at home, a distrust that’s well-justified.” All this over avian flu, which to date has killed fewer than 100 people worldwide. Travel to other countries and you’ll find that a society’s freedom is inversely related to the number of guys wearing camouflage, brandishing big guns and pulling people over at roadblocks. Blurring the distinction between policing and soldiering, as do the military police in the former Soviet republics of Central Asia and Middle Eastern countries like Syria and Jordan, is a defining characteristic of repressive states. Rule under the point of a gun is not democracy. Yet James Pinkerton of the New America Foundation argues for efficiency over freedom. “When you absolutely, positively, have to get something done right away,” he wrote in USA Today, “you call in the military. By their

very nature, men and women in uniform are oriented toward getting things done. They are trained to complete their mission, or die trying. And as Hurricane Katrina made clear, the rest of the government doesn’t hold to such a high standard. So why not the best?” But what if military dictatorship could be proven a more efficient form of government than old-fashioned democracy? What if a standing army could do what a bunch of nambypamby bureaucrats can’t? Would it be worth it? That’s the choice George W. Bush is asking Congress, and thus us, to make. The fact that he hasn’t been impeached for daring to ask it highlights the dictatorial tendencies of those who share his c o n tempt for personal liberty.


I ended up devoting 19 pages of my legal-size notebook to the Club Starlite hearing held during the Liquor Control Adjudication Board’s Oct. 6, 2005 meeting. The Wailuku bar was up on three counts related to LC investigators finding manager Hannah Bridgette Yun passed out on a couch inside next to a glass of whiskey and water. Defended by superstar criminal defense attorney Lawrence Ing, Starlite pleaded not guilty, which necessitated a “trial.” I put the word “trial” in quotes because of the bizarre, rambling way in which the Adjudication Board handles matters where liquor licensees try to fight charges leveled at them by the LC. Witnesses are sworn in just like a regular trial, except the rules of evidence from such trials don’t apply, so stuff like hearsay is completely admissible. The surreal nature of the hearing wasn’t lost on rookie board member Lance Collins, who objected early on to Board Chairman Shigeto “Mustard” Murayama’s invoking an “exclusionary rule” to clear the public gallery of all witnesses before testimony could begin. Collins, pointing out that the hearing was open to the public, wanted to know the exact wording and citation of the “exclusionary rule” in the LC’s charter. That brought on a short recess while LC Director Franklyn Silva and Corporation Counsel Tracy Villarosa-Fujita combed through the LC’s rules. Neither found Murayama’s “exclusionary rule,” but eventually explained that a line saying the board chairman could “regulate the course and conduct of the meeting” allowed the chairman to kick witnessess out of the hearing. “All meetings of boards and commissions are supposed to be open,” Collins said. “We don’t have the power to exclude people.” After a formal vote on the issue, Murayama and the rest of the board overruled Collins, insisting that they could kick people out of the hearing.

Even if they weren’t intelligent, it’s mind-boggling what we’ve allowed the agricultural community to do.

How do you feel about the farmers?

Are people listening, changing their diets? The estimation is that about a million people a year are making these choices. But I’d say the real trend is to eat smaller portions of meat. The real growth we’re seeing is in the young adult population: lots of them are moving toward a vegetarian diet. Ecology to them is very important. We can grow enough food on one acre of land to feed a vegan for a year. The same acre of land can only grow a month’s worth of food to feed an omnivore.

Save a pig, kill a tomato Brenda Davis is a registered dietician who likes to travel the world telling people about the importance of a vegetarian diet. She’s written five books. She was scheduled to speak at the Cameron Center on Oct. 19 as part of the latest Vegetarian Society of Hawai’i lecture series, but since that falls after our press time, I spoke to Davis by phone shortly before she flew to Maui. Maui Time Weekly: So what got you started on the lecture circuit? Brenda Davis: I have no clue, really. I’ve been doing it for 10 years. I’ve been on an eight-month speaking tour in 42 states. The main thing was writing my first book. It was a national bestseller. When you do really well, you go on the speaking circuit. I just got more and more requests to speak. Why did you write that first book? I’m a registered dietician. By 1994, I’d felt that the time had come for a scientifically based resource [on eating healthy]— a very concise guidebook that was acceptable to the medical community. Nothing was written up to that point that the medical community would consider reliable. How long have you been a vegan?

That’s remarkable.

I’ve been largely vegan for 15—no, 16 years. I’ve been completely vegan for five years. I say “largely vegan” because in the early days I wasn’t quite so careful about eating certain things as I am now. Why did you go vegan? It’s just an unbelievable story. I’m from Northern Ontario—that’s the beer/bingo/hunting/fishing part of Canada. I never heard of a vegetarian, but growing up I always had strong sensitivities to animals. I never stepped on a worm. I always cared about animals. Then one day a friend of mine went off deer hunting. I told him I didn’t approve of that. What he said changed my life. He told me I had no reason to criticize him, that the animals he killed had a good life, and that I couldn’t say the same thing about the animals on my plate. What did you say to that? I had no response. I wanted to find out more about animal agriculture. My mom worked on a farm, but today we don’t have anywhere near the number of family farms we used to. Close to 90 percent of animals today come from factory farms. That’s 10 billion animals in North America, not including sea creatures. People have no idea how many animals are being killed every year.



Illustration: William Steig

I feel sorry for the farmers. Look at most farmers in the past—most treated their animals very, very well. Farmers today have no choice.




Our intense animal agriculture is really not sustainable. Ten years ago, I heard that if everyone on Planet Earth consumed the way a North American does, we’d need three planets. What would it be now? Four planets? Five? Sixty to 65 percent of the American population is obese. We’ve got to take responsibility for our health. Many people probably say they are doing fine, eating things in moderation. But if everything you eat is junk, moderation will kill you. The problem is, for most North Americans, that’s the last thing they should hear. They think deep fried pork rinds can fit into their diet. They need to hear to eat more vegetables! They need to hear to eat less meat! But our policies are very much influenced by the industries that are killing us. What’s the single best thing people on a traditional North American diet can do to improve their lives? Number one, to stop eating processed foods: fast foods, deep-fried foods. And if you’ll let me give a second answer, number two is they should eat at least 10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. We need to supersize vegetables. MTW

The Last Hitchhiker How a Good Deed Went Bad By Anthony Pignataro She was still crying, but now her arms were raised, hands grasping the back of her neck with her elbows pointing forward. She just sat there like that, in the seat next to me, crying. “Just relax?!” she said to me, nearly yelling. “If you were in my position, would you relax?” I started to say something, then stopped. I had no idea what to say. I had no idea what to do. I didn’t even know who she was. I wanted to do something, but deep down I knew there was nothing I could do. “I need a drink,” I finally said. “Do you want a drink?” She dropped her arms and curled up into a little ball. “No,” she said quietly. I stared at her. “How old are you?” I asked. “Eighteen.” “Christ,” I said, shaking my head. Neither of us said anything for a few moments. Then my cell phone rang. She jumped at it, but it was just a friend of mine. I muted it, then dropped it back onto the seat. “I’ve never been so scared in my life,” she finally said. Then she told me she wanted to go. “Look, go if you want,” I said, “but it doesn’t feel right just leaving you out here.” But she was already getting out of my car. Surrounded by cane fields, she shut the door and started walking nowhere in particular. I never picked up hitchhikers until I moved to Maui. It just isn’t done in Southern California. Hitchhikers were rare in any case, and those you saw looked like haggard burnouts or serial killers, so it wasn’t exactly a tough call.


OCTOBER 20, 2005


But out here, hitchhiking is far more acceptable. Nearly everyone, it seems, has hitched a ride. The risk of something unexpected and dangerous happening is pretty low. Besides, it’s not easy to roar past a young, attractive woman standing by the side of the road. The first hitchhiker I ever picked up was a woman balancing on crutches trying to thumb a ride as rain poured down. Others were harmless, just looking for short rides from Honokowai into Lahaina. “You’re my hero today,” one girl said as I dropped her off at work. Even the girl I picked up at the outskirts of town who wanted to go to Kahului and started fidgeting nervously the moment I left the shoulder wasn’t that bad. She was clearly tripping on meth or something, but she didn’t cause any trouble, though the ride would have been more pleasant had she taken a more recent shower. Then I met the girl I’ll call Sandy. She was in Lahaina, standing on the makai side of the highway opposite the Shell Station at Dickenson. She was very pretty with long, light brown hair. She wore a black, long sleeve shirt and jeans. I was in the left turn lane, wanting first to stop at the gas station before heading to Kahului to mill around. I’d been on the Westside a while, and just wanted to go someplace else. I watched Sandy for a few moments as she smiled at passing cars. Then the light changed and I headed to the gas station, but thought that if she was still there when I was done, I’d pick her up. I gassed up the car, headed back to the highway, and was shocked to see her still standing on the side of the road. So I rolled down the passenger side window and pulled over.

“Where’re you headed?” I asked. “Kahului,” she said. “Cool. Hop in.” At first, everything was cool. She wasn’t talkative, so I just relaxed and drove. She put on makeup. I thought it was pretty tough, considering we were doing like 50, but she didn’t miss a beat. When she was done, she turned to me. “Can I use your cell phone to make long distance calls?” I had free long distance and free minutes on weekends, so I said sure. It quickly became apparent that she was trying to call her mother. She made a couple calls to different numbers, but never did get her on the phone. A few minutes she started sniffling. It was just a little at first, then a lot. She was crying, but muffled. I looked out the window—we were barely in Olowalu, and still had miles to go. I thought about saying something. But what? “Is something wrong?” was too stupid. “What’s going on?” was too accusatory. What was going on? I’d been in the car with this chick for, what, 15 minutes and she was already suffering a breakdown? We reached the Pali. She began playing with the radio. Then she asked to use the phone again. She still didn’t reach anyone. “Just let me off here,” she said as I drove into Ma’alaea. “What, here?” I said. “What do you mean here? The side of the road? What’s wrong?” “Just stop, please,” she said. Her voice was agitated. I pulled into the Maui Ocean Center parking lot. It was a Sunday night, so it

was empty. I parked in a spot and turned to her. “Okay, what’s going on?” “I don’t know,” she said, really crying now. “I want to go home. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t have a job, I don’t have any money and the guy I’m staying with is a real creep. I don’t know what I’m doing here. And I don’t want to just blurt out my troubles to a complete stranger.” I tried to take it all in, but it was impossible. I was a stranger. I had no idea who this person was. I watched her cry for a moment, then I thought about how easily she had smiled at other passing cars when I first saw her. What was going on? Why had I been so stupid and picked her up? “I know,” I said. “But I picked you up. I’m here.” This was insane. Even at this point, I knew there was nothing I could do. She said she’d flown here a couple weeks earlier. She said her mom had been sick and there was no money to fly her back. She wanted a job, but didn’t have a regular address. “What about where you’re staying?” I asked. “I was staying with a guy I know,” she said. “But when he found out I wouldn’t have sex with him, he turned into an asshole and passed me off to his creepy friends. I’ve been staying at a different place every night.” I kept grasping for ideas. Did I know a place where she could stay? Did someone I know have a spare bed? Could she stay with me? How could I help? It was all bullshit. I shot down every question as I thought it up. There was no way I could help her. But still I tried. “Don’t you have any friends you can

stay with?” I asked. “There’s got to be somebody out here-“ “I exhausted all that already,” she said. “Ten times over. There’s no one.” “What did you want in Kahului?” I asked. “To get a refund on a phone card,” she said. “I just want to talk to my mom.” Oh man. The sensible thing at this point was to let her go. “Then I’ll take you there,” I said, demolishing whatever sense I had left. “What will you do when you’re done?” “Get a ride back to Lahaina, I guess,” she said. I said nothing, but drove out of the parking lot and back onto the highway. We were on the road only a few moments when Sandy began fishing through her purse. “Are you fucking kidding me?!” she suddenly said. “I can’t believe this!” She was really crying now as she handed me her phone card receipt. It had faded so much it was completely blank. A half hour ago I was on my way to Borders to t h u m b through books a n d





magazines. Now I was alone in my car with a crying woman I didn’t even know. “Just leave me here,” she said. “I just want to be alone.” I pulled into the carpool lot at the corner of Honoapi’ilani and North Kihei Roads. She cried more. I fumbled questions. She told me she was 18 and said she just wanted to go again. This time I let her. I sat in my car after Sandy left. I was completely drained. The engine was still on, but it was dead quiet. I couldn’t think of anything to do. Driving on into Kahului suddenly seemed ridiculous. I looked down, and remembered that my friend had called me a few minutes earlier. I put the phone to my ear and started to retrieve the message. “Are you calling the cops?” I spun around. Sandy was standing next to me. Her voice seemed a bit better, but that told me nothing. She just stood there. “Look, this is all fucked up,” I said. “But I’m





here, right now. There’s nothing I need to do tonight. Do you want help or not?” I immediately regretted making the offer, but she nodded. I almost hoped she’d say no and walk away again. I’d gone over this already: there was nothing I could do for her. She was in a bad spot, but she was also an adult who’d gotten into this mess because she’d done a series of really stupid things, none of which I could reverse or make better. I’d known her not quite a half an hour. I still wasn’t sure if she was telling me the truth. What kind of person completely breaks down in front of a complete stranger? But my mouth was no longer connected to my brain. “Then get in the car,” I said. Wiping her eyes, she wa l k e d around and got back in my car. “What do you want to do?” I asked. S h e thought a




moment. “Go to the mall and get a new phone card.” I drove off. She still cried, but not so much anymore. As we drove through the vast cane fields of Central Maui, then into Kahului, I kept trying to come up with ways to help her. And I kept coming up with nothing. As we drove into the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center, I wondered what I’d say when I stopped the car. I thought about offering to accompany her. But then what? Take her back to Lahaina when she was done? To where? I thought about offering to have her stay with me, but quickly dismissed the idea. What if she never left? What if all this was a lie? I wanted to help her, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was in way over my head. I pulled up in front of Ruby’s. She got her purse and opened the door. “I can stay with you if you want,” I said. I was just talking, having no idea why I was saying such things. “I think I just want to be alone right now,” she said. I fished a business card out of my wallet, handed it to her and said to call me if she got into trouble. She plunged it into her purse without looking at it, thanked me and stepped out of the car. “If my mom calls your phone,” she said after shutting the door, “Please tell her I’m doing fine.” I stared at her in disbelief. Her eyes became frantic. “Please? Say I’m fine, everything’s okay. Please.” Thinking the odds were pretty low I’d get a call, I nodded. “Thanks,” she said, and walked off into the mall and out of my sight. I sat there a few moments, then slowly pulled away from the curb. As I passed the mall entrance I glanced inside. To my surprise, I saw her in the distance. As she walked in, she suddenly turned and looked back towards me. She was still looking at me as I drove off. MTW

And Paia. Now we have Pizza Paia, with its simple yet alliterate name. It’s nothing more and nothing less than the town’s quintessential pizza place. It fits the criteria by being easy to find, selling quick and quality pizza and boasting an efficient set-up. You can drive through or stroll up to the window, order, then grind at the picnic tables right on Hana Highway. Let’s just say if anything about that confuses you, you’re not the brightest tomato on the vine. The menu is displayed across a couple surfboards hung over the window. They’ve got the typical special combos on 10-, 14- and 16-inch pies for between $7 and $21. Slices go for $2 and it costs 50 cents per topping. It’s all very reasonable. I applaud them for keeping it about the pizza. You’ve got plenty of toppings to choose from in customizing your slice, which is of hearty size. There are also a half dozen salads and munchies ranging from $3.50 to $5.75. One of those is the enticing Pizza Pretzel, a giant handmade pretzel made from pizza crust with sun-

dried tomatoes, garlic, basil and oregano mixed in. It’s no ordinary pretzel. There are also hot and cold sandwiches six or 12 inches in size for between $4.75 and $8.25. They looked good, but unless you’re allergic to cheese I don’t see why you wouldn’t just order pizza. When in Rome, right? So, with this anti-diet mentality, I ordered a slice with mushrooms (always) and pineapple, to add a little aloha. We all know everyone has his or her own idea for the paragon of pizza. Sometimes it’s a hit and sometimes a miss, but we usually enjoy it just the same. Anyway, that Pizza Paia slice scored on the upper end of my pizza-meter. The crust was neither too thick nor too thin. In fact, it was nearly the size of a flipper and the toppings were nicely embedded. The cheese was a little excessive for my taste, and I ended up partially dissecting my lunch. But I got the emotional gratification that a great piece of pizza gives, so unattainable through a salad or quiche. My only minor annoyance was with the 30second fury of rain that cut under the veranda in sheets, right onto my plate and I. But that’s why we love green Paia. Surfers and Paia merchants occupied the other picnic tables during my lunch, and together we watched the alien-like bike riders on their way down from Haleakala, wondering if they knew they looked like a scene from Mars Attacks. Boosted by all those carbs, protein and fat, I then felt strong enough to take on the afternoon—as well as the traffic back to the Westside. MTW

Alison Jackman Ice cream scooper, The Sweet Spot in Kihei Ever since I was 15, my first boss had been telling my Mom that as soon as I was old enough, he would be happy to put me to work at his shop. He was the owner of The Sweet Spot at the time and two of his children had gone through my Mom’s preschool class. Apparently, she had made a good impression, and so had I. It seemed like a great place to begin my life in the work force. Not to mention, I already had an in. So when I did finally make it to 16, and it was time to get a job, I went to work at The Sweet Spot. That was four years ago and, even though the store has changed hands, I remain a loyal employee. I work two jobs, like so many others on the island, so I’m not here as much as I used to be. But I stick around to make sure things are going smoothly as new people join the team. I try to make work fun and apply the golden rule at all times. The way I see it, work is a big part of our lives, because we spend a good portion of our days there. It only makes sense that we should take consideration in how we treat those we spend that time with. The people you work with make up another family outside of your home. That’s why I feel like you should always go above and beyond the call of duty to support each other. MTW

Monday, Oct. 24 - Thursday, Oct. 27 at the Maui Mall Megaplex, Kahului [FILM] The “Louis Vuitton Hawai’i International Film Festival” is kind of a mouthful so we’ll just stick with LVHIFF, ‘k? So anyway, this is the 25th annual LVHIFF. On Maui, we’ll get seven films from Mexico, Spain, the U.K., the U.S. and Japan for our viewing pleasure. But the thing about independent film festivals is—you never really know what you’re going to get. Everyone knows independent films are supposed to be more grassroots, more of a higher “intellectual” quality than most big Hollywood blockbusters. And yeah, the idea of indie films is great but the risk is, you’ll inevitably run into the occasional flick that’s just awful. Some art school student with rich parents and/or connections decides to “make a difference” through filmmaking and unfortunately, the end result is the audience is out $7.50 and no one is better off than before they went anti-blockbuster and into the indie theater. However, you won’t find any of that here. All the LVHIFF movies have been hand-selected to ensure one of the most inspiring amass of talent Maui Mall Megaplex has seen in a while. The topics range from “a comedy of errors” to the story of a young boy in a wartorn country. All the films are meant to provoke thought and feeling. Rest assured, you’ll leave the theater a little better off than when you arrived—except for that infamous popcorn bellyache. No indie or blockbuster will alleviate that.

ThIS WEEK’S PICKS by Samantha Campos

Black Grace Thursday, 7:30 p.m. at the Castle Theater [DANCE] Kiwis are literally leaping from New Zealand to Maui. Watch out! The modern dance company performs original works that incorporate Pacific dance, western modern dance, hiphop moves and even martial arts. It’s going to get hectic, I can tell you that much. Normally an all-male company, Black Grace has added three ladies to the show for their current U.S. tour. That should be hot. Are you ready for what The New York Times claims is, “Full of invention, humor and infectious exuberance?” Oh, I think you are! Tickets are $10, $20, $35 and half price for kids. Call 242-7469 or visit the MACC Box Office. [HEIDI KING]

Mele for the Masses

Jasmine Trias Live! Saturday, 5-10 p.m. on Market Street in Wailuku [MUSIC FESTIVAL] Jasmine Trias? The Jasmine Trias? The second runner-up in last year’s American Idol competition? She’s coming here? Really? Really! No way! Way! Seriously folks, Trias is the headlining act at the first annual Wailuku Music Fest. They’re closing a whole block of Market Street in Wailuku to make way for this party, which includes Trias, a bunch of youth bands and other entertainers like Ekolu, Kamakakehau, Love featuring Cool Rush, Kahele and Ahumanu the strolling musicians with Kapaa Tita. There’s also going to be craft booths, children’s activities and food. Lots of food. And it’s free, so show up. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

Friday, 4-9 p.m. at MCC [MUSIC] It’s not easy to take the road of scholarly pursuits. There’s the confusion of registration, the tedium of applying for financial aid, the anxiety of endless tests and long hours spent in rooms listening to people drone on and on, and the studying—oh, the studying! So in a recent poll by your the fearless leaders, the student government—or ASMCC, as us acronym-loving citizens like to call ‘em—have tallied your cries for relief from all that learning with a big ‘ole, brain-numbing, not-so-much-educational PARTY, y’all! You asked for it, you got it. Featuring The Easy, Amphibeus Tung, DJ Boomshot and more! It’s free and it’s all ages.

Spook-tacular! Saturday, 7 p.m. at McCoy Studio Theater [STAGE] Remember once upon a time, before we became glued to TV and DVDs and X box, when we used to just circle around The Storyteller, who had the uncanny ability to stir up your imagination through mere words? No, I hardly do either. But there’s something to be said for this kind of timeless entertainment. What better occasion to celebrate old-school tradition than Halloween?! This weekend will bring together five masterful storytellers to titillate the audience with spooky tales and good old Talk Story. I was thinking of joining the line-up, seeing as I have about 15 years of Halloween ghost-story narrative experience under my belt. My family hosted an annual Halloween party when, on one crisp October night, we would gather around a campfire in the woods with a bunch of friends, make s’mores and try to out-petrify one another. Apparently there were adult nuances involved in some tales which went right over my head, as to expect in this session (e.g., Why don’t skeletons have sex? Because they have hallow weenies!). My dad was really on it, enlisting neighbors to dress up as witches and rigging model ghosts up in the trees to move. We would reach ultra-high levels of fear, exhilaration and fun. Plus it was always eye-opening to see what a self-powered blast we could have without any electronics. Just our lovely personalities—and the marshmallows didn’t hurt. Come and remember how much we can enthrall and spooooook each other in person! Tickets: $12 adults, 16 and over, $5 kids 7-13 (NOT suitable for children under age 7). [MOLLY RETTIG]


John Brown’s Body Saturday, 9:30 p.m. at Maui WaveRiders, Lahaina [MUSIC] Back in 1995, when my friend said we were going to check out a reggae band called John Brown’s Body, I didn’t know what to expect. So I did some checking up on the name. John Brown was an American Abolitionist who played a major part in the history of slavery in the U.S. up until the Civil War. He made such an impact, there’s a famous hymn written him. Anyway, this eight-piece ensemble from the East Coast is also about positive impact—on your funky groovin’ reggae ass! They’ve got five albums under their belt, and their latest album, Pressure Points, has beats you can’t help but get your sway on to, as well as jazzy ska tunes that’ll breeze reggae right on into the future. My favorite song, “Make It Easy,” is sure to be your new regg-anthem. Really, I could go on and on. And I highly recommend the show— they’re so incredible live. If you don’t go, well, it’s your ass. Tickets: $15. [KIMBERLY L. WELCH]

OCTOBER 20, 2005


Landmark Case That Changed Sexual Harassment Law, the film traverses lofty dramatic heights scaled in poignant films like Norma Rae and Silkwood with similarly emotionally affecting results. Charlize Theron gives an excellently modulated performance as Josey Aimes, a mother who quits her abusive husband to rebuild a modest life working alongside her father (Richard Jenkins) in a local iron mine where she, along with several other female miners, suffers unmerciful physical and psychological sexual harassment. Consummate performances from an ensemble cast, including Frances McDormand, Sean Bean, Sissy Spacek and Michelle Monaghan, support the thoughtful examination of crucial familial, social, and political issues. North Country is a movie that subtly links the social injustices against women in the story to the ways in which women are still diminished in American society today. It’s a comparison that comes wafting

through the human essence of the actual people that the actors represent rather than through any polemical narrative device. When you come away from watching the film, it takes time to readjust and comprehend how much and yet how little things have changed since Josey Aimes handed the corporate world its ass at a time when the Anita Hill hearings were fresh in the public’s mind. The raw emotions of fear, anger and ridicule expressed in the film taps directly into the country’s current communal sense of foreboding about the crushing political reversals that allow corporations to subtract personal freedoms with things like firing a woman for a bumper sticker she has on her car. Josey’s attorney Bill White (flawlessly played by Woody Harrelson) warns his client of the mining company’s “nuts and sluts” defense that will paint her as one or both during the trial. The degrading term encapsulates the codified language of jurisdictional treachery that corporate lawyers use to pulverize human lives. It is also the exact brand of prejudice that Josey bravely takes on when not even her own father would stand up for her at the job where they both worked while she and other women were ruthlessly abused. As evidence of the abuse that Josey suffered at the hands of one particular man becomes clear during the film’s climatic trial, we see how even just witnessing an abusive event can polarize people to act out aggression against victims as a way of disguising their own fear. It’s a situation that suggests that this is how war is. MTW

The patient makes predictions and sends his therapist’s life into a tail spin when the predictions come true. It’s a racethe-clock, what-the-heck-is-going-on-here? type of flick that should keep you biting your nails through the full 99 min. Also stars Naomi Watts. (Heidi King)

Now Showing CORSPE BRIDE - (PG) - Animation - Yay! Yay! The new Tim Burton movie is finally here! It’s a new story with that similar feel of The Nightmare Before Christmas—death with a romantic twist. I can already see the limitless merchandise that’ll be available at Hot Topic by next week. It’s stop animation, for crying out loud! Do you really need any more reasons to go see it?! 75 min. (HK) DOMINO - (R) - Action - Based on the true story of a legendary actor’s fashion model daughter who rejects a life of privilege to instead live as a not-soglamorous bounty hunter. Starring Keira Knightley as the beautifully troubled and unexpectedly tough, Beverly Hills anti-primadonna, the film’s directed by Tony Scott, of True Romance fame, so you should expect some blatantly bloody and subtly sexual stuff going on. 143 min. (GP) ELIZABETHTOWN - (PG-13) - Romance - When fine-ass Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom) gets canned from his hot-shot job in the big city, he feels like nothing will ever be good for him again. Then he finds out that his father has died and he has to return to his hometown to retrieve the remains. On the plane he meets an upbeat flight attendant named Claire (Kirsten Dunst). With her positive outlook and his need for reassurance, a beautiful bond is formed. 135 min. (GP) FLIGHTPLAN - (PG13) - Action, Thriller - Forty thousand feet above earth Kyle (Jodie Foster) and her daughter are among many passengers flying for the first time in one of the world’s first doubledecker airplanes. Mid-flight, Kyle returns to her seat after a short absence to find that her child is nowhere to be found. Astonishingly, after pleading with the staff for help, she is confronted with the fact that there’s no record of her daughter ever being on the flight. At this Kyle must wonder if she’s lost her mind or if there’s some sort of conspiracy against her. 120 min. (GP) THE FOG - (PG-13) - Horror - You know, I’m kind of a sissy when it comes to getting scared easily, but fog has never been an issue. One of my exes wasn’t afraid of anything, except the fog. Weird, huh? Well, this feature takes place in Northern California, which can get very foggy when you’re on the coast. Apparently, there was a shipwreck 100 years prior, and now, in present day, the lost souls are coming back cloaked in the fog... for revenge. Who the hell is still alive that could’ve pissed them off? I don’t know. Normally, I scoff at horror flicks that only make the PG13 rating. But, in this case, I may just have to relish in the terror it hopefully inflicts upon my cheating ex. 100 min. (HK) THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED - (PG) - Family - Francis Quimet, an ameteur golfer from a working class family, shocked the golf world (and simply anybody who was anybody) when in 1913 he beat all odds and defeated his hero and golf champion, Harry Vardon. Sorry to ruin it but everyone knew that the Titanic was goin’ down and that movie grossed millions. Besides, it’s the journey





I love you, my robot brother! not the destination. 115 min. (GP) A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE - (R) - Drama - Viggo Mortensen stars in this David Cronenberg thriller about the relentless way in which violence will take over and consume a man’s life. After Mortensen, a quiet diner owner, thwarts a robbery and gets hero attention, two mobsters suddenly appear with less than honorable intentions. Also stars Maria Bello, William Hurt and Ed Harris. 98 min. (AP) IN HER SHOES - (PG13) - Drama - Cameron Diaz plays a fun-loving and irresponsible sister to the serious and mature lawyer of the family (Toni Collette). The two girls decide to give living together a shot... Let the drama unfold! But is it possible they may learn something about themselves and who they want to be by letting themselves be influenced by one another? Oh, I think so. Also stars Shirley MacLaine 130 min. (HK) INTO THE BLUE - (PG13) - Action - Thriller - When four hot young divers (including Jessica Alba and Paul Walker) discover a shipwreck containing millions in gold, they assume everything will be dandy. But nearby, a sunken plane full of illegal cargo threatens to interfere with their capture of the riches. Their plan proves hazardous when smugglers invade the area to recover their missing plane. Running around wild in their bathing suits, they must work together to escape disaster. 110 min. (GP) JUST LIKE HEAVEN - (PG13) - Romantic Comedy Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) and Mark Ruffalo (13 Going on 30) meet under strange circumstances; they both think the same apartment is theirs. Ruffalo’s character has just moved in and Witherspoon’s character thinks the place is still hers. Maybe it’s the car accident she gets into that messes with her memory. Or, could she be an attractive and sweet ghost that steals the heart of the new tenant? Ah, but will their love be enough to keep them together even though he’s still alive? Oh, the obstacles! Get the tissues. 95 min. (HK) SERENITY - (PG13) - Action-Adventure, Sci-Fi - Think Star Wars, except there aren’t any big stars or complex storylines and everyone’s trying to act like Han Solo. It didn’t work as the Sci-Fi Channel serie Firefly, so there’s obviously every reason to believe it will work as a feature film! Anyway, the movie’s about a rough-andtumble interstellar freighter captain who navigates his way through a giant space war and ends up protecting a psychic girl from the clutches of the all-powerful Universal Alliance. Stars a bunch of unknowns and that one Baldwin brother who never seems to do anything good. 119 min. (AP) THUMBSUCKER - (R) - Comedy, Drama - Justin Cobb is a 17-year-old who sucks his thumb. There is, of course, nothing inherently wrong with this act, though society does tend to deride such individuals as pariahs, malcontents and “Keanu Reeves fans.” Anyway, this kid goes through therapy to end his antisocial behavior, and that’s when everything starts to go wrong. Stars Tilda Swinton, Vince Vaughn and—oh, look at this!—Keanu Reeves. What an amazing coincidence. 97 min. (AP) TWO FOR THE MONEY - (R) - Drama - A can’t-miss ex-college football star with an uncanny knack for picking game winners teams up with a high-strung, highroller veteran sports consultant. They win, they lose, they fight amongst themselves. And it stars Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey. I seriously doubt I’m the first person who suggested those two get teamed up for a picture. 122 min. (AP) AN UNFINISHED LIFE - (PG13) - Drama - Jennifer Lopez plays a woman who escapes her abusive boyfriend, and along with her daughter, goes go live with her estranged father (Robert Redford), who is tending to his friend (Morgan Freeman) after a severe bear attack. Symbolism abounds. 100 min. (Samantha Campos) WAITING - (R) - Comedy - Taking a glance into the restaurant industry isn’t always pretty. Some people might be amazed by the conversations at the register and the actions behind the scenes. The employees of “Shenanigans,” a cheesy chain restaurant with equally





cheesy policies, is staffed by the people who serve you every day. Go see this film because it’s filled with sexual tension and probably more than a couple of poop jokes, not to mention all the the funny (and slightly depressing) parallels to the average American’s everyday life. 93 min. (GP) WALLACE & GROMIT: CURSE OF THE WERERABBIT - (G) - Action-Adventure, Comedy, Animation – British animation master Nick Park’s brilliant Wallace & Gromit have finally made it to the big screen. In this adventure, cheese-loving, not-too-bright Wallace and his intellectual yet mute dog Gromit are running a pest control service that must do battle with a mysterious monster threatening to ruin the town’s annual Giant Vegetable Competion. 94 min. (AP)

One of the Boys Canadian chick singer Erin Smith kicks ass sweetly

... and she’s cute, too It was a guy who first told me about Erin Smith. “You’ve gotta check her out!” he said. And I could tell by the dopey grin and the stars in his eyes that he meant business. Oh god, I thought, another chick singer. I expected some young Jewel clone, all acoustic cuteness and saccharine, gap-toothed vulnerability. Then I got my ass kicked. Figuratively, of course.

It didn’t occur to me that Smith would rock so hard. Or that the sweetness could be dirty, too—doused with attitude, clever songwriting and powerhouse vocals that scorched and swooned. Smith did some covers—Fiona Apple, Tool, Sublime—but it was her funky, jazzy, eclectic pop originals that impressed. And she had charisma. She was like the cool, multi-talented older sister you ran to crying about some jerk who


broke your heart. She would tell you all the right things—mainly that he’s a jerk and you’re not—make you laugh, put some red eye-shadow on you, then tell you to beat it, she’s got a gig to play and paintings to sell. Smith has released three albums in her homeland Canada, as frontwoman for the Erin Smith Band. She’s also played with Afro-funk band Mr. Something Something, as well as with a female vocal collective called the Ladybird Sideshow. She’s toured Canada, Ireland and much of the U.S., which entailed much couch surfing, long-distance late-night driving and no sleep. She said it was great to meet everyone but the glamorous touring rockstar life took its toll. “You have to be ‘on’ all the time,” said Smith. “It was fun but I got burnt.” And when it comes to the music industry— the business side of selling records—Smith says it’s “bullshit” and would rather not deal with it. The shady contracts, the record-label “image” meetings, the dwindling profit percentage after paying your tour manager, booking agent, public relations people, blah, blah, blah—it’s better to be independent these days. “A lot of schmoozing goes into being a musician on the next level,” she said. “And I don’t like to push people. I want it to be natural.” Smith says she was ready for a change. So she left her band in Canada, and came to Maui nearly a year ago with her husband Ross. It didn’t take long before she started playing gigs regularly in Kihei. “It feels like I’m touring here,” said Smith. “So many new people come and go, and I’m selling just as many CDs as I did [on the mainland].” She’s been painting—her art can be found at One World Gallery, Art by Loyd and Nihiku Ti. And she’s been writing new songs—a lot actually, now that she has the time. She wants to make

another record. But be a rock star? Not so much. “When you’re 20-something and a singer,” said Smith, “there’s all this pressure. I always

For more info, visit kinda wanted to be in a position to do art and music, and I’m kinda there now. It took a few months to gather her band mates, Ian Hollingsworth on drums, Kimo Clark on bass, and Elan Rae on congas. The Maui band has only been playing together for a couple months, but say they feel like “we really rock now.” And they’re right; the chemistry shows. Everyone looks like they’re having fun onstage. The guys say it’s partly because lots of girls come and “the front row is all cute chicks.” But also, they just really like Smith. “Why?” asked Rae. “Because she’s so fucking nice. She’s really easy to work with. And there’s something redeeming about playing with a girl who sings about how guys are assholes.” They say she’s unpretentious, that there’s nothing fake about her. She’s real, she’s sweet and she’s cute. But she’s no girly girl. She can definitely hang with the boys. “She would be that way if she were onstage or crocheting skirts,” said Rae. “And she does, you know—crochet skirts. Have you seen her ‘Sewing’ section on her website?” MTW

DA KINECALENDAR Community College, Ka Lama 103. The documentary’s impact draws intensity from such wide-ranging figures as Werner von Braun, Dwight Eisenhower, Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Noam Chomsky who talk about the dangers of moving the arms race into space.

WALK THE LINE (RELEASE DATE: NOV. 18.) The preview for this Ray-esque tribute to Johnny Cash starts with the words “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Songwriters Hall of Fame. Country Music Hall of Fame. But that’s not what made him… a legend” against a backdrop of prison inmates stomping their feet. Then an intense Joaquin Phoenix as Cash is being told, “If you was hit by a truck, and you were lying out in the gutter, dying, and you had time to sing one song, one song that would let God know what you felt about your time here on earth, one song that would sum you up, that’s the kind of song that truly saves people.” Flash to images of screaming fans, Cash fighting, Cash loving on June Carter (a cheeky Reese Witherspoon), and Cash just being cool. Even though we know how the real-life story plays out, this trailer’s won me over with teasing, and I’m burnin’ for more. (Samantha Campos)

AEON FLUX (RELEASE DATE: DEC. 2) Charlize Theron as the raven-haired, post-modern, animated MTV heroine Aeon Flux? Now, I dig Theron but initially, I’m skeptical. Theron’s got too much heart to portray the sharp-featured, sadistic assassin. I’m thinking more Angelina Jolie or Milla Jovovich. But as the trailer continues, I think the studio and I are both right. The intelligence and vulnerability Theron brings to the role, as she narrates a series of explosions and fight sequences, actually gives the sci-fi vixen more depth when saying stuff like, “I had a life once. Now all I have is a mission.” (SC)

Sushi Go - Presents a concept unlike anything on Maui: Conveyor-belt sushi. Live Music every Wed, 4-8 p.m. Queen Ka'ahumanu Center, Kahului, 877-8744.

A GOOD WOMAN (RELEASE DATE: DEC. 2) Almost immediately we know it’s a romantic drama. It’s something about the moody instrumental music and stunning sunset vistas of the Italian Riviera in the 1930s, I think. But what strikes me about this trailer is not Scarlett “Lips” Johansson’s flawless beauty nor Helen Hunt’s somewhat unnerving voice, it’s not even the soft-focus cinematography. What grabs my attention is the dialogue. You get such pearls as, “I like people more than principles. People without principles, even better” and “Women don’t trust women. Men don’t trust women. No one trusts women” as well as my favorite, “Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future.” (SC)

UPCOUNTRY MAUI Jacque’s - Live Jazz, Mon & Wed, 7 p.m.120 Hana Highway, Paia, 579-8844.

MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA (RELEASE DATE: DEC. 9) This is one of those trailers that shows us the whole movie: the story of a young girl in 20th century Japan who goes from maid to renowned Kyoto courtesan. Based on the best-selling book of the same name, you can assume the movie’s going to be a sweeping epic, full of gorgeous costumes, beautiful landscapes and emotional drama. It’s likely to be an Oscar contender and you know everyone’s gonna see it. So would it kill Columbia Pictures to leave a little room for the imagination come opening day? (SC)

CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN 2 (RELEASE DATE: DEC. 21) It opens with horror overtones of danger in the forest, then shows us Steve Martin falling from a poorly hung tire swing. “All the Bakers are back,” they tell us, which undoubtedly includes the ones who weren’t funny in Cheaper by the Dozen 1, which I actually, mercifully, have no memory of. Anyway, the trailer shows us how lame Martin’s dad character is, how cool Eugene Levy’s quasifascist dad is, tosses in a breast joke involving Carmen Electra, then ends with Martin nearly dying while trying to prove to his kids that he can wakeboard. Though the opening is ironic, the rest of the trailer leaves no doubt as to the banality audiences can expect. (Anthony Pignataro)

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) For good or ill, Libras often see things in terms of personal gain. It’s that whole scale thing; you’re constantly weighing, evaluating and judging. This is how you’ve gotten a reputation as shallow social climbers, who only act out of pure self-interest. I know that’s not truly accurate, of course; just because you can’t help seeing things in that light doesn’t mean you always have to act on that basis. Does it? Prove your naysayers wrong this week (if only just for yourself ) by doing lots of good that you won’t get anything for—not even credit.

Maui’s Only Locally Owned Newspaper is GROWING...

Join Our TEAM!

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) That whole angel on one shoulder, devil on the other cliché is sort of apropos this week, only their counsel isn’t so starkly moralistic; it’s more subtlety versus brute force. It’s a tough decision, and even I can’t tell you which method will work best to get you into the situation you desire: talking your way in, or just shoving past whatever opposition attempts to stand against you. Neither one really has much of an ethical advantage over the other, either, so that leaves you with only a couple of considerations. Since either method is equally likely to work, and both are morally ambiguous, which one will be the most fun? That, of course, is the one you should employ.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) If you’re eligible for an award, you’re liable to win one this week. If not, it’s quite likely you’re going to get some kind of recognition for who you are and the way you do things. Enjoy the well-deserved accolades, but beware of them as well. There’s nothing more likely to constipate your evolutionary process more than praise. In other words, don’t let that crap go to your head or convince you you’ve got your shit together. The second you decide you’re on top of your game is when you’ll get run right over by it. Enjoy the rave reviews, by all means— but then get right back to work.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) If anyone’s familiar with feeling like an outsider, it’s you. Even in group situations where you can logically conclude that you’re most definitely not an outsider—like your own family—you still somehow often manage to feel like one. Perhaps you need to do this to yourself; maybe it’s some kind of weird identity thing. Personally, I don’t get it, but I’m not about to pass judgment on it, either. Whatever the case, this week you’re going to come faceto-face with this self-enforced paradigm. I don’t know if you’ll decide it’s useless and just holding you back, or fundamental to who you are. How you deal with it is up to you; just be assured you’ll probably have no choice.


CEnthusiastic ool Restaurant Highest Standards

The distant planet Neptune has been cruising backwards through your territory for the last five months. First thing next week it’s surging back into forward motion, retracing the path it’s already taken twice before in recent memory. What’s this mean for you? An abundance of déjà vu? Maybe, but probably not. Actually, it’s a chance for you to go over and perfect the things you’ve been working on—whether that means rewriting your novel, overhauling your workspace, or simplifying and purifying your relationship. It’s not often you get this much time and space to really give your dreams their best shot at realization. You’d be a fool to waste this chance.

Looking For

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Last week I told you to focus on the little things, and I’m glad I did. It’s amazing what a tremendous effect the smallest detail can have on you sensitive Fish. I’ve seen you fundamentally swayed by a gentle autumn breeze, a wink from a stranger, or a snippet of a song heard in passing. One of the problems with being so sensitive is that you can take pleasure in such gorgeous tiny moments, but you’re also saddened that so many around you cannot. Make remedying this incongruity this week’s task. If you can teach just one person—or better yet, three or four— how to experience rapture from the color of an autumn leaf (or something similar), you’ll have done your job.



ool People! Passion for Freshness Lahaina Store Grille & Oyster Bar,

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Why not walk around pretending you have superpowers? Or a billion dollars that you’re just waiting until the right moment to use? I’m a big fan of people reinventing their realities to make them more interesting, and you Rams are especially good at it. The trick is letting it be a game and not cross the line into self-delusion. If you play the game right, your world becomes vastly more interesting (for everyone), you get to be more dynamic and explore a wider range of possible selves, and magic can actually happen. Guess what else? This week, it’s not just fun. It’s also, strangely, a route to changing your life for real.

Front Street’s newest eatery, is centrally located in the historical 1916 Lahaina Store building across from the board walk. The two floor restaurant is offering Maui’s only rooftop dining and a 47-foot raw oyster bar, this 10,300 square foot restaurant is also featuring an exhibition kitchen complete with four chef’s tables and a total of 350 seats. If this exciting restaurant fits your bill then apply for the following positions:

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Presentation, in this case, is everything. You can make a case for preposterous bullshit like humans having lived with dinosaurs in the Garden of Eden if you are articulate and convicted, and a certain subset of your audience will buy into it, hook, line and sinker. On the other hand, you could also present a well-reasoned theory of evolution, backed by the scientific community and cartloads of evidence, but if you do it in a way that’s tedious and whiny, you’ll lose a percentage of your audience. It sucks, I know, that some people are so inept at critical thinking, but that’s the reality of the situation. At the moment, lame as it is, it doesn’t matter so much what you say as how you say it.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Something you’ve believed in and advocated for a long time will finally be put to the test this week. You’ll also be subject to a kind of test yourself. What I mean is, you won’t stand or fall with the success or failure of whatever you put your money on. It’s bigger than that. It’s also an examination of self-faith as well as your willingness to question yourself, your convictions and your goals. The true trial is whether you continue to believe in it regardless of the actual outcome, and—even more important—whether or not that’s really a good thing.

line cooks • baker • bussers • broiler • wait staff host help • dish washer • expeditor middle • food runner Applications accepted at 744 Front Street in the Lahaina Store building first floor office from 9:00 am through 5:00 pm Monday through Friday or email TAKE A SNEAK PEAK!

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) I know Cancers who find ways to blame their frequent emotionality on being drunk, or worse, actually get drunk a lot so as to have that camouflage. I know we live in a world where crying and cackling and raging and any kind of extreme expression of emotion just isn’t really okay. But the fact is, those things are very human, whatever we pretend to the contrary, and they’re especially Cancerian. The trick to making our future one where it’s okay just to be you isn’t to find ways to disguise or make excuses for it. Just be it. No embarrassment. No apologies.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) From here it sort of looks like you’ve retreated to the moral low ground and dug in, preparing to make your stand there. I’m not sure why, to be absolutely honest, you’d adopt such a lame, losing strategy, especially because the position you’re trying to defend, while not exactly Top 40 popular, is hardly devoid of ethical value. Marshal the courage of your convictions. They’re valid and worthy of respect and consideration from everyone, even if they won’t ultimately agree with them. By forcefully advocating what you believe in this week, you won’t win over many converts, but you will win their respect.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Sorry, no time to write you a proper horoscope. I’m dying to reorganize my bookshelves. Maybe after that I’ll sort the Tupperware in the kitchen. I’ve noticed the houseplants desperately need pruning, and if I give the bathtub a scrub I’ll actually feel okay about taking a bath—should I ever have time to do so…. I know all these busy things you get up to feel important, but sometimes you must admit you use them to keep yourself from having to deal with stuff that’s truly much more important, if possibly harder to properly address. Notice that this week, then put aside your busy-work so you can actually deal with it.

Food for the Brain Intelligent conversation is one of life’s pleasures. I love nothing better than to engage in conversation with someone who has ideas to share, different perspectives, and is interesting. An intelligent conversation is food for the brain. All too sadly, not everyone can carry on an intelligent conversation. This has less to do with their intelligence quotient (IQ) than with their emotional quotient (EQ). Only a self-aware, self-confident person with excellent social skills has the ability to engage in intelligent conversation. – “You Can’t Have An Intelligent Conversation With Everyone” by Rachelle Disbennett-Lee

Maui Lawn Works

Two guys and a girl—all platonic friends—are sitting together at a table in a bar. Over the course of an hour, they consume three rounds of beer and Patron shots with Tabasco. This is what it sounds like. “Dude, what are you looking at?” “The bartender—I think I know her. But she looks different somehow.” “Did you hook up with her?” “We were good friends.” “Oh please, you totally hooked up! Just admit it.” “Whatever. What lipstick color is that?” “C’mon, are you serious?” “What is it? Berry Blitz?” “No dude, that’s a wine cooler.” “Actually, it’s a Jamba juice.” “I can name that color in three notes.” “Is it… 7-11 Red?” “Whatever it is, it’s gotta be good.” “It’s called Cocoa.” “Cocoa?! It’s really more like Burnt Sienna.” “Burnt Sienna? Isn’t that a crayon color?” “That’s why they call it Cocoa—shut up!” “That was the only color I couldn’t pronounce.” “Didn’t Crayola have colors like Kangaroo Yellow?” “I had a bottle of water stolen from me by a monkey in Thailand. They were cappuccino monkeys. Seriously, they had a little white hair froth on their heads.” “What, were they frozen, too?” “Did I order a water? I meant to order vodka.” “Do you like Rush or do you like Clint?” “I’m nominational.” “Uh, you mean non-denominational? Wait, even that wouldn’t make any sense.” “When did you get your nose pierced?” “Um, I got it pierced when I was about… 21, I think.” “That was around the same time I got my balls pierced.” […] “You want to ask me something?” […] “Hey, where’d the cute bartender chick go? I don’t want that guy serving me.” “Give him a break—he just needs a boob job and some ass.” “Yeah… But this isn’t Burning Man.” “I figured out a better name for your lipstick— how about Mexican Pussy?” A slap. And the sound of a limp body hits the floor.
