Coconut Wireless Hawaii Schools Get Race to the Top Money, Hawaii Politicians Race to Take Credit Local schools got a rare bit of good news this week, in the form of a $75 million federal grant. Hawaii was one of nine states—along with Washington D.C.— selected in the second round of the Race to the Top program, part of President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The winning states were chosen by the U.S. Department of Education, whose secretary, Arne Duncan, was a harsh critic of the furloughs that made our 2009-’10 school year one of the shortest in the nation. Hawaii Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi called Race to the Top a “rallying call” and praised “the unprecedented collective support from educators, legislators, policy makers and community partners.” Of course, this being an election year, a gaggle of politicians rushed to trumpet the news—and toot their own horns in the process. Based on the press releases and Twitter posts that flowed out after the announcement, everyone from Senators Inouye and Akaka to Representatives Djou and Hirono to Gov. Lingle and Lt. Gov. Aiona to the various candidates vying to replace them fully supported the program and/or had a hand in landing the funds. Further proof that nothing dissolves political acrimony like a feel-good soundbite.

Ed Case Endorses Abercrombie, Slams Hannemann For a guy who is neither an elected official nor an active candidate, Ed Case sure has managed to stay in the headlines. This week, Case announced he’s endorsing Neil Abercrombie for Governor. That alone is somewhat newsworthy, since Case and Abercrombie haven’t always seen eye to eye. But what really gave the

story legs were the harsh words Case reserved for Abercrombie’s Democratic opponent, Mufi Hannemann. “I’ve known and worked with Hannemann [for years] and once saw him as a leader for Hawaii today and tomorrow,” Case said. “But, as I’ve watched him in public office, I’ve come to view him as the most dangerous politician in a generation, because his talents mask an agenda which, if successful, will set Hawaii back a generation.” Case went on to accuse Hannemann of “exploiting rather than healing differences of race, origin and

Though some—most prominently the Cultural Resources Commission— criticized the party, many residents, visitors and merchants have lamented its loss. But no one has calculated how much money the event once known as the “Mardi Gras of the Pacific” brought in. Until now. A study commissioned by the North Beach West Maui Benefit Fund and conducted by Hawaii Pacific University Professor Jerome Agrussa found that Halloween in Lahaina generates about

Scientists have created the first frozen bank of Hawaiian coral cells, which could later be de-popsiclized and used to replenish decimated populations. economic status” and governing “by fear and intimidation, rewarding compliance and punishing disagreement.” If Case’s words were bait, Mufi bit. “This is negative campaigning at its worst,” Hannemann spokesperson Carolyn Tanaka shot back. “Ed Case’s hateful e-mail assassinates the character of Mufi Hannemann with accusations that are completely devoid of any facts.” Abercrombie, meanwhile, said simply that he was “very happy” to receive Case’s support and that his “statement speaks for itself.”

Halloween in Lahaina: the $3 Million Baby For the last two years, Halloween in Lahaina has been a virtual non-event, with no permits issued for adult activities and Front Street left open to traffic.

$3 million in additional revenue for businesses, mostly hotels and restaurants. The study, which focused on visitor spending, also found that revenue dipped significantly between 2007, the last year the street was closed, and 2009. Total sales generated fell more than $180,000, while restaurant sales on Front Street plummeted nearly 30 percent. Whether the study will have an impact on this year’s festivities remains to be seen. For now, Benefit Fund spokesperson Lance Collins touted the importance of collecting “objective economic data,” adding it’s “impossible to have a reasonable discussion without all the facts.”

UH Scientists Try Coral Cryonics Coral reefs are dying, in Hawaii and

around the world, and could disappear in our lifetime. That’s the bad news. The (potentially) good news is that experts are trying to do something about it. Last week, scientists from the Smithsonian and UH Manoa’s Institute of Marine Biology announced that they’ve created the first frozen bank of Hawaiian coral cells, which could later be de-popsiclized and used to replenish decimated populations. “Because frozen banked cells are viable, the frozen material can be thawed in one, 50 or, in theory, even 1,000 years,” said researcher Mary Hagedorn. And, science fictiony as it sounds, the process isn’t merely theoretical; Hagedorn said coral eggs have already been successfully matched with frozen sperm samples to produce viable coral larvae. Malia Paresa of Oahu, who grew up near Kaneohe Bay where the research was conducted, worked on the project as a student intern. “Before this internship, I had no idea how dire the situation was,” said Paresa. “As a Native Hawaiian and Kaneohe native, I take great pride in making a difference in the future of Hawaiian coral reefs.” ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1410c

Last week, the Pew Research Center released the results of a poll titled “Religion, Politics and the President.” One of the findings: 18 percent of Americans think President Obama is a Muslim. (43 percent said they don’t know what his religious beliefs are, while only 34 percent correctly identified him as a Christian.) This, naturally, set off a minor media frenzy. The poll also asked respondents how they reached their conclusions. According to Pew, “60 [percent] of those who say Obama is a Muslim cite the media.” That, curiously, got less media attention.

Candidate Profiles

T

his is the secondto-last installment in our series of candidate profiles, which will culminate in endorsements before the September 18 primary. This week, we look at the three County Council contests that feature more than two candidates.

South Maui Name: DON COUCH Profile: In 2008, Couch lost a tight, contentious race against Nishiki by less than 4 percent. Couch served in the Arakawa Administration as an Executive Assistant to the Mayor and as Deputy Planning Director, and currently works as an IT manager. He promises to “bring more openness, more honesty and more common sense to the South Maui seat,” to “make it easier for our small businesses to make a legitimate living, which will allow them to grow and provide much-needed jobs” and to work toward “food and energy self-sufficiency on Maui.” Web site: Doncouch.com Name: WAYNE NISHIKI Profile: Nishiki has been part of Maui’s, and Hawaii’s, political landscape for more than 30 years, first running for Lieutenant Governor in 1978. He served a 10-year stint on the County Council before terming out in 2004, and won his seat back in 2008 in a hard-fought contest against Couch. After the election, revelations that he’d accepted a $100,000 loan from developer Everett Dowling while out of office did damage to his credibility and no-strings-attached image. Yet his voting record and style have remained unchanged—he’s still a favorite of the environmental crowd and a reliably independent, sometimes combative voice on the Council. Web site: Electwaynenishiki.com Name: NORMAN VARES Profile: Vares also ran for this seat in 2008, finishing third out of four candidates with just over 8 percent of the vote. A retired plumbing contractor, he lists affordable housing, water (he supports desalination), “eliminating government waste” and promoting local agriculture as among his top priorities. Web site: Normanvares.com

Makawao-Haiku-Paia Name: MARY COCHRAN Profile: A member of the state Board of Education, Cochran says she’s running “to be a voice of reason on the County Council.” She says her focus is on

“affordable housing, developing water sources, expanding public transportation and restructuring property taxes so long-time residents are not overburdened.” Web site: Marycochran.org Name: KAI NISHIKI Profile: Nishiki challenged incumbent Mike Molina in 2008, losing by a wide margin, but is trying again now that term limits have pushed Molina aside. The daughter of Wayne, Nishiki shares her father’s environmental focus—and political ambitions. “I want to be a voice for other young families like my own, who work hard and dream of a future that includes jobs we can count on, housing we can afford and a safe, clean community,” she says. “As a volunteer community leader, I am already working to improve conditions in my district and our county.” Web site: Kainishiki.com Name: LEONA BAK NOMURA Profile: Owner of the Ku‘au Mart, Nomura says she “will make no promises” but is motivated by her 22 grandchildren and “love and passion for these islands” to “preserve, protect and serve for the betterment of us all.” Web site: Electleona.com Name: MIKE WHITE Profile: Other than a five-year stint in the state House from 1993 to 1998, White has spent his career in the visitor industry. He’s currently the general manager of the Kaanapali Beach Hotel, a position he’s held since 1985. He describes himself as “probusiness, pro-environment and dedicated to cultural preservation” and says he has “the compassion and balanced perspective necessary to make informed and effective policy decisions.” Web site: Mikewhiteforcouncil.com

West Maui Name: SU CAMPOS Profile: Campos has served on various boards and committees and ran for the West Maui seat in 1994. She says she’s running again because of her “passion for the working class” and her “never-ending concerns for the lack infrastructure in West Maui.” Web site: Unknown Name: EVE CLUTE Profile: “As a doctor of public health, and professor in environmental sciences, I teach evidence-based practices to assess, plan, implement and evaluate policies and programs,” says Clute. She says she’d tap into federal funds available for small

businesses, increase government efficiency through consolidation and make “jobs, homes, health and aloha” her top priorities. Web site: Clute4council.weebly.com Name: ELLE COCHRAN Profile: A small business owner who lives “off the grid” in Honolua Valley, Cochran says that “our environment is our economy” and promises to bring “sensible and accessible government back to the people of Maui County.” She’s a founder of the Save Honolua Coalition, a founding member of Faith Action for Community Equity Maui and president of Maui Unite! Web site: Electelle.com Name: ALAN FUKUYAMA Profile: Fukuyama challenged popular incumbent Jo Anne Johnson in 2008 and lost by almost 10,000 votes. Now, with Johnson termed out, he’s facing a much more crowded field. Fukuyama didn’t respond to our candidate questionnaire and we couldn’t find an official campaign Web site, but earlier this month he told the Lahaina News that, as an account executive, he brings “a consultative approach to solving problems” and that he wants to “bring Maui back to the prominent vacation destination it has always been.” Web site: Unknown Name: ZEKE KALUA Profile: Kalua has extensive nonprofit experience, most recently as Executive Director of the West Maui Taxpayers Association. According to his bio, he served on the Mayor’s West Maui Advisory Committee from 2003-’06 and was an Executive Assistant in the Mayor’s office from 2005-’08. He lists infrastructure, affordable housing and maintaining social services among his key issues. Web site: Zekekalua.com Name: KE‘EAUMOKU KAPU Profile: A taro farmer who serves on numerous Native Hawaiian boards including the Hawaiian Historic Preservation Council and the Maui/Lanai Islands Burial Council, Kapu says he has “always been an advocate towards land and ocean environmental issues” and promises to “help empower our community to ask the questions that will lead to a more harmonious future.” Web site: Unknown Name: PAUL LAUB Profile: The president of the Maui County Veterans Council, Laub says Maui “could be in much greater economic shape if it wasn’t for County-imposed restrictions.” He cites “permitting agencies [that] are exceedingly notorious for their poor permitting processes and are in desperate need of a

makeover,” and says “hundreds of jobs are currently held up due to the status quo.” Web site: Paullaub.com ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1410u

THE ROYAL TREATMENT The Yaohnanen tribe on the South Pacific island of Tanna believe their true ancestral god is Britain’s Prince Philip (based on photographs of him with the Queen during a 1974 visit to Tanna’s mother nation of Vanuatu) and believe he promised he would return for good on his 89th birthday (June 10, 2010). Although the prince has kept in touch, he failed to show up for the grand celebration, but fortunately, Scottish university student Marc Rayner was on the island, working as a volunteer teacher, and stepped in for the prince, which meant that he and not the duke of Edinburgh got to wear the “formal” ceremonial penis sheath appropriate for such special events.

MORE CUSHION FOR THE PUSHIN’ Iconic female beauty in Mauritania (and in a few other African societies, as News of the Weird has reported) regards “rolling layers of fat” as the height of sexiness, according to a July dispatch by Marie Claire magazine, and professional force-feeders earn the equivalent of about $200 each from parents for bulking up their young daughters in boot camps that sometimes serve animal fat as drinks and apply the cattle-thickening drug Oradexon. “The stomach flab should cascade; the thighs should overlap; and the neck should have thick ripples,” said Aminetou Mint Elhacen, the feeding drill sergeant. Some girls rebel, but others embrace their new bodies. Said one, “When I realized the power I had over men, I started to enjoy being fat.”

PARTY HARD, INDEED “It’s springtime in Japan, and that means [two] things,” wrote GlobalPost.com in March: penis festivals and vagina festivals. Held annually in several locations (for the last 1,500 years, some say), with the best-known taking place at Komaki City’s Tagata shrine in March, they were initially spiritual, serving as prayers for procreation and crop fertility. However, they have grown into carnivals for tourists and children of all ages. Most Western visitors hardly believe what they’re seeing: huge, parade-floatsized phalluses heavy-lifted through the street and giggling children brandishing toy penises and vaginas (to make offerings of them at local temples).

TO THE DOG Gail Posner (the widow of legendary hostile-takeover executive Victor Posner) died in March in south Florida but left a will that endowed her beloved Chihuahua Conchita (and two other, less-loved dogs) a $3 million trust fund plus the run of her $8.3 million mansion for their remaining dog years. (After all, Conchita has a style to maintain, including a four-season wardrobe, diamond jewelry and full-time staff.) Mrs. Posner’s only living child, Bret Carr, who

admits he had issues with his mother, is challenging her $26 million-plus will (that left him $1 million), mostly because, he said, Mrs. Posner’s staff and bodyguards suspiciously wound up with the bulk of the riches on the pretense that they would be caring for Conchita.

UNWELFARE In May, the Daily Mail profiled the Houghtons of Crawley, West Sussex (Lee and Jane and their five youngest children), who live in free government housing and draw monthly benefits of the equivalent of about $1,600, without doing a bit of work because Lee has a “personality disorder” and daughter Chelsea, 16, has attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and needs a caretaker to help with her baby. The Houghtons admit that they spoil their kids at Christmas with lavish gifts, and the reporter noted the presence of four TVs, two Xboxes, three DVD players, mobile phones for everyone, and a computer and laptop. Lee is unpopular with his neighbors, who call the police on him frequently because of his drinking. Said Lee, “If people want to work, good for them. I would if I could.”

Dancing is great; cheerleading is perfectly fine.

AT LEAST THEY WEREN’T TALKING ON CELL PHONES Driver Bryan Parslow, 19, injured himself and three passengers when he crashed into a tree near Wheatland, New York, in May. He was playing “hold your breath” with the others and passed out. And in July, Lora Hunt, 49, was sentenced to 18 months in jail in the crash that killed a woman on a motorcycle in Lake County, Illinois, in 2009. Hunt was so preoccupied painting her nails (polish was splashed all over the car’s interior) that she never even moved to apply the brakes before the collision.

BUYING THE FARM Americans continue to agonize over government “giveaways,” but as News of the Weird has noted several times, somehow federal farm subsidies continue unabated—even though much of the money no longer goes to cuddly “family farms” but to rich urban industrialists who hardly know a plow from a sow. In the latest accounting from Environmental Working Group records, the weekly New York Press revealed such “agrarian” handout-seekers as Manhattan billionaires Leonard Lauder and David Rockefeller and Rockefeller’s son Mark. For 10 years now, the federal government has handed Mark $54,500 a year not to grow anything on his 5,000 acres in Idaho. According to the Press, Mark never intended to, in that he only bought the land because it was adjacent to the upscale, socialite-hangout South Fork flyfishing lodge he runs next door. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1410n

WORDS BY ANU YAGI ILLUSTRATION BY RICK RIETVELD

RAINBOW CONNECTION IN THE SUMMER OF 1970, JIMI HENDRIX PLAYED HIS PENULTIMATE U.S. CONCERT IN A FIELD ABOVE SEABURY HALL AND SOME HIPPIES MADE A MOVIE. FORTY YEARS LATER, WE RELIVE THE EXPERIENCE WITH MAUI’S OWN LES POTTS

I

REMEMBER THE DAY Jimi was leaving Maui. He looked at us with tears in his eyes and said, ‘You guys are so lucky. You get to stay,’” reminisces Mauian Les Potts, who spent three July weeks with Hendrix filming Rainbow Bridge, and was involved with the film’s production from its genesis. Shooting culminated with what was dubbed the “Rainbow Bridge Vibratory Color/Sound Experiment,” a storied concert on Baldwin family ranch land in Olinda, on July 30, 1970. Hendrix immediately went on to play at the Waikiki Shell on August 1. It was his last concert on U.S. soil. He died less than two months later.

H

endrix’s final days were dark ones. He was having problems with his manager, Michael Jeffery, and, according to biographer Harry Shapiro, “was becoming increasingly distrustful of those around him.” At the same time, Hendrix was changing his sound—with mixed results. “Both his management and his audiences seemed determined that Hendrix should be content with simply repeating his former triumphs,” writes another biographer, Charles Shaar Murray. “Much to Hendrix’s

10 August 26, 2010

disgust and despair [his] fresh material seemed to be merely tolerated.” This “fresh material,” while beloved by enthusiasts today, embodied a bold new direction for Hendrix—jazzier, rolling compositions inspired by his camaraderie with Miles Davis as well as his repeat visits to the Hawaiian islands from 1968-’70 (Potts, among others, points to the tune “Pali Gap”). “He planned to release a double album with the working title of First Rays of the New Rising Sun, at the end of [1970],” writes Murray. But with that project left unfinished, “two posthumous albums released in 1971,

Cry of Love and Rainbow Bridge... both betray their makeshift origins.” The latter-named release is better known for the movie of the same name, principally filmed on Maui during the summer of 1970. Murray writes that Rainbow Bridge was a project “close to [Jeffery’s] heart—an incoherent farrago of dope and mysticism.” (It might be more accurate to say it was close to Jeffery’s pocketbook—Potts says Jeffery personally sunk over $500,000 into it, plus $300,000 to Warner Bros. and $40,000 to the IRS—funds that weren’t recouped until

the movie was sold in ’72 to Transview Pictures Corp.) But the film is closer still to Mauians, especially those who were in it. Sure, the flick’s incongruous plotline (if one even exists) coupled with misleading marketing (bootlegs and re-releases often try to pass it off as a straight concert film) make it a tough sell to even diehard Hendrix fans. But it remains worthy as a cinematic hippie relic; a portrait of a sect of youth—specifically youth on Maui—from that era, and includes a unique snapshot of one of music’s most revolutionary icons in what would be his final weeks.


N

ever mind the oft hard-to-follow ramblings of rawboned hippie waifs at “The Rainbow Bridge Occult Research Meditation Center” (i.e. Seabury Hall, rented out during the school’s summer vacation, Potts says, for a meager $3,000 for three months), where lead actress Pat Hartley is sent to investigate the experimental outpost of a man she meets in the Mojave Desert. Even the concert footage in Rainbow Bridge is frequently dismissed by Hendrix historians as not particularly memorable. But sit down and screen the film with someone who was there—as we did with Potts recently, in his Napili home—and not only are the movie’s charms made more evident, but the texture of noteworthy

Potts says he first met Jeffery at Lahaina’s Pioneer Inn, while having breakfast one morning. Potts and a friend were petitioning a potential investor for $10,000 in startup cash to open a surf shop, but things “weren’t really going anywhere.” It was a time when bogus rumors often flew about acts like Led Zeppelin coming to the isle. But when a man who’d earlier introduced himself, to Pott’s disbelief, as Hendrix’s manager interrupted, saying, “Ten grand? I’ll give you ten grand!” the direction of the conversation quickly turned to Jeffery. Jeffery returned to Lahaina “six to eight months later with Michael Hynson” (who remains a close personal friend of Potts’s), and it was then that Potts learned of—and became involved with—plans to make a movie. Cast member Melinda Merryweather,

“Thick” though it may be, it sets up movie’s intended themes—themes that aren’t necessarily upheld in any organized manner. “Chuck Wein wanted to produce a program to relieve mass paranoia against the arrival of extraterrestrials,” says Potts. “[He] was talking about UFOs because he believed that evil power monopolies ran the planet, along with the military industrial complex, and UFOs were powered by electromagnetic energy. If this were to come out, it’d be a bigger revolution than the Industrial Revolution, because electromagnetic energy would replace oil electricity. We went into a lot of detail about that, but most of it was not in the film.” The opening monologue, meanwhile, croaks, “Have you heard of the Mystical Population? Have you ever met anyone from this enigmatic section of the land?

ever seen... All our islands have mysterious lights seen in odd places... in the sky or on the ground.” “Of course, this is all theoretical,” admits Potts, “[but] this is what we were talking about at the time. I’m not talking about little green men, I’m thinking more like the book Chariot of the Gods,” he adds, referring to the 1968 book by Erich von Daniken. Potts has a few key scenes in the movie, including an infamous one where he and others cut open a surfboard to reveal a large bag of smuggled psychoactives—which in reality, Potts says, was chocolate cake mix. Another takes place at Lahaina’s Banyan tree. There, Potts really interviews two young Mauians about a UFO sighting they’d had, where a vessel came out from the valley above Lahainaluna.

HENDRIX’S MUSIC IS THE MOVIE’S AUDIBLE CORNERSTONE AND HIS CONCERT ITS VISUAL CLIMAX, BUT JIMI HIMSELF IS LITTLE TO BE FOUND.

brushstrokes from this portrait of our island’s history come clear. “Forty years is a long time, and I bet if you talk to any of the other survivors, you’ll get a different story,” says Potts, who adds that most cast members have since passed. “But this is what I remember. At the time, we were just dumb, haole hippies, and back then, we weren’t really socially accepted at all. Our county government was gearing toward the fact that they wanted [Maui] to be a tourist place for rich people.” Pamphlets essentially saying “we don’t want you here, go back where you came from” were handed out to anyone at the airport with “a backpack and long hair,” says Potts. A May 27, 1970 Maui News editorial titled “Forecast for a Troubled Summer” reflects a similar sentiment. “Young people here on Maui as throughout the state and across the nation will find summer employment hard to come by... [as] recruiters and businesses... have learned to pick and choose while being most selective,” reads the piece. “There might be a measure of satisfaction to be gained from this if the only ones to be hurt and frustrated were the radicals who have spent four years damning the establishment. There might even be some therapeutic value in discovering the world does not revolve around the desires of the young, and that it can be a tough old world to get along in.”

in a 1995 interview with Straight Ahead Magazine, says she approached Jeffery on Maui and told him about a guy named Chuck Wein, a protégé of Andy Warhol, who had an idea for a film. Wein’s vision, Potts says, was forwardlooking, a precursor of what we now call reality TV. The concept was to take reallife personalities and subtly script mostly impromptu interactions. “He just took different people that were heavy into their trips, put them together and let the cameras roll,” says Potts of the “very, very loose script.” A California native, Potts was behind the scenes during filming in So. Cal. in the Spring of 1970 (though he needed to keep off-screen as he was to be in Hawaii shots), and points out the many locations seen early in the film. During the opening sequence, when a group of young people approach actress Hartley with rapid-fire testimony, Potts says, “those are real Jesus freaks.” Later, during a scene where Hartley is hassled by two police officers, Potts quips, “those are real cops—and, frankly, some of the better actors in the movie.” And, in a scene where Hartley imagines marching off to war with a band of young men lead by a barking drill sergeant, “those poor suckers” were really off to Vietnam. Potts cringes during the movie’s long, opening monologue—a canned voiceover set to a black screen. “This is a little thick, this guy’s rap.”

Do you know their mission? Their destiny? Do you know that the space people have already established regular routes to the U.S. and the makers of this film—who are energized with them—are already in contact with them at will?” Shapiro’s Hendrix biography expands on this: “Wein claims that a group of people meditated for several months and traveled astrally to visit those with sufficient funds to finance the venture. The record books fail to show whether Mo Ostin of [Warner Bros.] received an occult visitation, but he did get a call from Mike Jeffery.” “At the time, we were having a lot of UFO activity [on Maui] because they were doing Star Wars testing up at the crater,” says Potts. Even a May 9, 1970 Maui News piece titled “Ghost Lights Over Maui,” by Jeanne Booth Johnson describes a “funny kind of meteor [that] was reported by a whole lot of folks in Honolulu, including government officials, Air Force and FAA personnel. A spokesman for the latter said ‘the object was not like any object missile or satellite’ he’d

Potts says that, in all, they filmed 43 hours of 35mm tape, “ridiculous” by today’s standards and part of the reason they racked-up “$300,000 in lab fees with Warner Bros.” Some of the footage consisted of “a giant cigar with a blue ball around it, right above Lahaina Harbor.” When the footage returned from Warner, he says it was wiped clean, but audio interviews of “people freaking out on Front Street” remained, though those too were lost 20 years ago to TV news reporter John Yoshimura, when Potts provided his insight for a 20-year anniversary Rainbow Bridge story for KHON2. “John, if you’re out there,” Potts says, “I want that tape back.” None of the UFO themes—which are clearly what resonate with Potts four decades later—are evident until the very end of the film (and even then, they require explanation). After the famed “Rainbow Ridge” Olinda concert with the Jimi Hendrix Experience (featuring Hendrix, drummer Mitch Mitchell and, replacing Noel Redding on » Continued on page 12

bass, Billy Cox), the final scenes of Rainbow Bridge are of primary cast members (Potts included) romping barefooted through the Haleakala crater to the Holua cabin, where they sit enraptured by Charlotte Blobe, who was â&#x20AC;&#x153;the closest thing we had to an actual UFO contact,â&#x20AC;? according to Potts. Blobe was the personal secretary to George Adamski, famous for his claims of meeting with Nordic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Space Brothersâ&#x20AC;? (a term also used in Rainbow Bridge). Then, credits roll over shots of a highly-active Kilauea.

N

eed a recap? Us too. A chick from the Mainland shows up on Maui and yaks with a bunch of haole hippies (save one Honolulu girl billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hawaiian Susanneâ&#x20AC;? in the credits) who have an array of competing â&#x20AC;&#x153;trips,â&#x20AC;? and duke it out with feverish pitch in an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Occult Research Meditation Centerâ&#x20AC;? otherwise known as Seabury Hall in the summertime. One of the greatest guitarists of all time shows up, speaks but briefly, and plays a concert Upcountry for a few folks

Hendrix. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were standing there [outside of the Cooper House] and Barron was giving his speech. Then, he just runs up there, grabs that gunâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which he must have seen up there at some pointâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and just did that.â&#x20AC;? Potts says Hendrix told him, over the course of their time spent on Maui and â&#x20AC;&#x153;having breakfast every morning for three weeks,â&#x20AC;? that he was under a lot of pressure from the Black Panthers to step to the forefront of the civil rights movement. That, Potts guesses, was likely the root of his motivation for the scene. It was a rare moment of spotlighthogging for the famed guitarist; Potts says Hendrix was incredibly shy throughout the shoot. In fact, every time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d commence shooting, Jimi would â&#x20AC;&#x153;freak out.â&#x20AC;? Finally, before the attic â&#x20AC;&#x153;interviewâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;which reveals an obviously drunk but very clever and cool-tongued Hendrixâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jimi, then still refusing to do the scene, talked with Potts, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d escaped to the furthest reaches of the campus and was listening to recordings from Hendrixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Fillmore East concert from New Yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Eve 1969.

who subsequently run up to the top of the mountain and talk to an alien lady. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an eruption. So what about Hendrix? Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he the point? Are criticisms of Rainbow Bridge as a misrepresented concert DVD, or Hendrixcentric movie, true? Yes and no. Hendrixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is indeed the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s audible cornerstone and his concert its visual climax, but Hendrix himself is little to be found other than in a rather voyeuristic interview conducted in Seaburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rafters and in perhaps the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most fascinating scene, where a grinning Jimi assassinates the Barron Bingen from a window at the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cooper House, as he gives a speech next to a green American flag. Potts shares some insider knowledge about that intriguing and (as with everything else) incongruous sceneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the only violence in the movie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was all Jimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea,â&#x20AC;? Potts says, as he shows me a framed photo from an old California newspaper, of him standing next to

They downed a few Miller High Lifes, and Hendrix was sufficiently calmedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and inebriatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to do what fans consider the most important and insightful part of the film. It may be in Pottsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words to Hendrix that we find the best summation of why Rainbow Bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;chaotic plotting, crazy hippies and UFOs asideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;matters. Because when all is said and done, in art as in life, nothing is faultless and everything is brilliant. â&#x2013;  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1410a

The slaw offers the ideal marriage of sweet and tangy and is augmented by bits of bacon, which, every meat-lover knows, make anything better.

illiam Sythes and I meet about 7pm for coffee and I realize this is his morning. Will is a straightforward guy; he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take me for a drunkard, so we met at Starbucks, an alcohol-neutral zone. Of course, we quickly move the interview to Hang Loose Lounge after both of us confessed a love for the corner bar. Sythes is a bartender and sometimes mind-reader at Ambrosia Martini Lounge. Ambrosia isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your ordinary Maui watering hole. Tucked off on the less-seen side of the Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Beach and Fat Daddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building in the Kihei Kalama Village, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a locale that defines intimate. Contemporary decor outfits the lounge with cement, rock and leather, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a timeless quality once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inside. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dark and climate controlled, with ambient lighting making the bottles and glasses sparkle; it just feels classy. Dark drapes conceal the liquor storage facilities behind the small bar--youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see bartenders duck under and emerge from behind these mysterious velvet coverings from time to time. Entertainment is different every night of the week, and you get a divergent crowd every time. Over a beer and a Jack and Coke, Sythes and I break down some of his specialty drinks.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up with the Green Fairy? We carry a lot of specialty spirits [and] Lucid Absinthe is one of them. We arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only bar on Maui with it, but we have an absinthe fountain. You drip water from the fountain over a sugar cube into the glass. The herbs in the alcohol make the drink cloud over;

the sugar breaks down from the drip and sweetens it. Then you sip it. There are also cocktails with absinthe. The Mint Muse is a mojito-like absinthe drink; the Green Lantern is a Midori pineapple absinthe mixture. I like to pair [absinthe] with a Peach Lambic.

Cute cocktail names aside, I hear that absinthe gives a special buzz. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that about? Yeah, there is a lot of mystique and controversy behind the herbal tincture of wormwood thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in absinthe. Especially since it was outlawed for a while. Thujone is the compound in it thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to give that buzz. Other herbs in the spirit are anise and fennel. It tastes like black licorice. Lucid, the company we carry, was the first genuine absinthe to get approval to import in the U.S. since the ban in 1912. Is there anyone in the U.S. distilling or making absinthe?

The Power of Two Tuneful Hawaiian duo discuss inspiration, collaboration and the wordless language of music New Album: Keola Beamer & Raiatea Essential Tracks: “I Kilohi Aku Au,” “Hilo Hanakahi,” “You Somebody” and “Kimo Hula” Upcoming Show: Saturday (August 28), 7:30pm, Castle Theater, MACC, $30-$45, 242-7469 or mauiarts.org Online: kbeamer.com; raiateahelm.com

T

his week, Keola Beamer and Raiatea Helm will play a onenight-only engagement at the MACC’s Castle theater, joined by Chamber Music Hawaii’s Spring Wind Quartet. Beamer—who comes from prestigeous Hawaiian pedigree; his mother Nona coined the phrase “Hawaiiana”—and Helm—an effervescent vocalist—recently released a self-titled album. We chatted with them via phone ahead of their Maui gig.

I understand you two had never met until talent coordinator Cary Hayashikawa suggested you collaborate for a 2007 show at Ala Moana Beach Park. How quickly did you realize you wanted to work together more? RAIATEA HELM: I was going into the studio to work on my next solo album. But while going through the songs, for some reason I didn’t feel the right drive. I thought about Uncle Keola—we’d just met [and] the chemistry was there right away—and for some strange reason, he was thinking about the same thing. It was a no-brainer to talk about recording a CD together. All of a sudden, we were making a CD and 18 months later, we made a “baby.” [Laughs] [Keola] is a perfectionist. While working with him in the studio, he had taught me a lot about being honest as a person and being courageous with my voice—finding things that I would never imagine trying. He really, really encouraged me to try to step out of that box and be open with myself. That’s what he taught me, and it made me comfortable in my own skin. It was quite an experience. KEOLA BEAMER: I’d listened to Raiatea’s records and liked the sound of her voice, but didn’t know too much about her. When I began to work with her, I really fell in love with the beautiful light behind her voice and I also really began to appreciate her discipline and her love of her craft. The thing about talent is that it’s a ke akua thing, you know? You can’t really learn it. You either have it as a gift or you don’t. That’s kind of the equation for music people, you have to have the gift and hopefully some kind of discipline to bring that gift forward. You must not only have talent, but a sincere wish to malama that talent. I work hard at it, and I help the

people I work with work hard at it. It’s not easy—we live in a 500-channel world with so many distractions. So when [people] come to see you, they deserve the very best.

During that first live collaboration, you performed “Ina,” John Lennon’s “Imagine” translated in Hawaiian. It’s also the first track on your CD. What significance does that song have to you? RH: You know, Keola is a genius with music—having the right songs come out for the right reasons. And that song has so much spirituality and a message. KB: It’s so amazing to me that John Lennon wrote that song 40 years ago, and it’s perhaps even more relevant in today’s world. When we performed that for the first time, people were weeping. It carries a message, and that’s what we’re carrying through these concerts. Carrying forward a message of aloha. Aloha is not just a word, it’s a way of being in the world. What can Maui audiences expect from your show? KB: What’s good about it is that this show has a lot of musical horsepower, with the best musicians in Hawaii. We’ve got a band that’s second to none and a great wind section. With Raiatea, myself and my wife, Moanalani, we all play as a group and there’s a cohesion, a strength, a refined beauty—each using our own skill set to bring the material forward. In contrast to a lot of contemporary Hawaiian music, many of the songs on your new CD are quite haunting—especially “I Kilohi Aku Au,” with its use of harmonics and spacious-sounding piano. Describe the motivations and emotions behind songs like these. KB [Raiatea] did a beautiful job on the vocals with “I Kilohi Aku Au.” I really appreciate the complexion of music, the space in music. Hawaiian music has a beautiful mana—the Chinese would say

chi—a healing energy. It kind of goes past language. It’s so hard to talk about music with words, but basically the space between the notes is as important as the notes themselves—and maybe more important. You have to create this sort of esoteric place that somehow reflects the guitar. Perhaps a way to look at it is, ancient Greeks had a thought that music and astronomy are separate sides of the same coin. Where astronomy is study of hidden objects in space, music is the study of hidden objects in the human soul—and the relationship of those objects. RH: “Haunting” is a good word for it, and I use it to describe that song all the time. When we began working on the album, “I Kilohi Aku Au” was the first song that Uncle Keola introduced me to, and it started the whole concept for the CD. When I first heard the music, I thought, “What? What is this?” I thought to myself, “I can’t sing to this.” He said, “No, just try.” So I did. I tried really hard. It was frustrating to me. When I sing, I try to put myself into a song. I try to put my whole body into it. You have to really dig deep when you sing a song— especially with a song you’re unfamiliar with. It took me three months to try to feel it and be comfortable.

Keola, you used six types of ki ho‘alu tunings in this recording, including classic D, G, D, G, B, D “taro patch” tuning, and your own, special C, G, D,G, Bb, E “G minor tuning.” Do you have a favorite way to play? KB: Each one has a different sort of tonal palette. I believe that part of the mastery of the instrument is understanding what the potential of each one of those palettes is. You have six strings on the guitar, and with each you get a new, I guess, “flavor” would be a word. The way I look at it is, I take a song and sort of imagine going down a hallway. It’s a long hallway with doors on either side. In one door is one type of tuning. So I take a song that I’m thinking about interpreting, and I’ll play it in one tuning, look at it in

the light of that tonal palette and assess if that coloration lifts up the piece. If it does, I know that’s where it belongs. Often times, it doesn’t happen with the first door. So you go to the next door. If that doesn’t work, you close that door and continue down.

Raiatea, last year you performed at the Presidential Inaugural Ball in Washington D.C. What’s your most memorable anecdote from that experience? RB: Besides the freezing cold? [Laughs] I think it was being a part of all the excitement. Everybody in Washington D.C., they’re very proud. Being in that moment, you can actually feel millions and millions of people at the same time. They’re really proud of a new world, change, and it was really cool to be a part of. It was exciting because all the Hawaii people were there, and were having a good time for one reason— representing Hawaii and Obama being President, and he being from Hawaii. Even though he didn’t come to our ball. It was pretty much a secret to everyone. With all the security and whatnot, you can’t really say what he’ll be going to. There were hundreds of balls that night. I met [Obama] before he was elected, when he came to Honolulu for a fundraiser at the Kahala. I performed at that, with Ho‘okena and Willie K and he spoke afterward. I got to take a photo with him and his wife Michelle. I remember I took a photo with the President, his wife, Willie K and [Willie’s] brother, and before he left, [Obama] accidentally stepped on my dress. My champagne colored gown! He said, “Oh, I’m sorry. I hope I didn’t ruin your dress.” I was looking at him, just totally star struck. I don’t know if I even said anything—I can’t remember. I didn’t wash it. I would never wash it. Or wear it! I leave it in the closet. Having performed all over the world, do you have a favorite place play? RH: Well, I haven’t been all over the world. I have yet to go to Europe. I’ve been to Japan, China, Tahiti and all over the United States. But I would love to travel the world more. KB: It’s hard to say, every place has its own wonder and beauty. I’m one of those people who likes to learn stuff. So when I’m with a different culture, I really try to participate— eat the food, hang with the people, walk off the beaten track—to get the feel of how people exist in different parts of the world. It’s a valuable, interesting experience. I have wonderful memories of places all around the world. I’m so remarkably grateful for music to have carried me so far. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1410m

Film Critique

Bite Me Supercharged carnivorous fish snacking on scantily clad co-eds—in 3D? Yes, please Piranha 3D

★★★★★

Jacques Cousteau’s recurring nightmare.

Rated R/89 min.

D

espite its considerable flaws, two things make Piranha 3D both recommendable and utterly critic-proof: the killer fish look great and the 3D effects are the best I’ve seen all year. Elisabeth Shue stars as a local law enforcer who discovers that, during an especially rowdy Spring Break weekend, the waters are overflowing with a bloodthirsty, thought-tobe-extinct breed of monster piranhas. Boats full of drunk, scantily clad and exceptionally stupid co-eds are soon mere appetizers for the toothy creatures, which are fast and ugly, like Gremlins with gills. Don’t bother seeing this for the actors. Shue looks embarrassed, Ving Rhames has one cool moment but is otherwise barely utilized and Jaws alum Richard Dreyfus, despite being top-billed, literally has nothing to do in his one scene. The only

18 August 26, 2010

bright spots are Christopher Lloyd (reunited with Shue for the first time since Back to the Future Part II), who goes on Doc Brown auto pilot as the local aquatic expert, and Jerry O’Connell, hamming it up as a thinly guised version of the Girls Gone Wild creator (here, it’s Wild Wild Girls). James Cameron enthusiasts won’t

appreciate this, but the 3D is as clever, layered and vivid as anything in Avatar. Other than How to Train Your Dragon and Despicable Me, most of this year’s 3D “enhanced” movies have been letdowns. Here’s one you’ll want to see on the big screen or not at all. You’ll not only feel closer than you’d ever want to get to the

title creatures, but you’ll see some other things thrust at you that you’ve never seen before in a mainstream movie. Yes, there are the inevitable moments of nudity (or, more accurately, extended scenes of gratuitous nudity) but there are some truly fiendish surprises that make this funnier and smarter than it has any right to be. The scares are minimal. I jumped a couple of times early on, but the film plays better as a dark comedy than a horror movie. Even with some genuine suspense at the end and ample gore at the mid-point, what stays with you are the outrageous, gleefully excessive moments. Joe Dante directed the original Piranha in 1978, a shameless Jaws parody/ripoff that also juggled shocks and laughs and featured the classic line, “They’re eating the guests, sir.” The remake is likewise a bawdy cheese fest, but with sensational 3D. Grab your rowdiest friends and have a blast. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1410f

Friday-Saturday (September 27-28), 9pm at Charley’s, 142 Hana Hwy., Paia

Saturday (August 28), 10am-2pm, Piiholo Ranch, Makawao

When you hear that a Nelson is set to play Charley’s, we know whose grizzled, twinkling visage you conjure up. Not so fast; we’re talking about the younger Nelson, 21-year-old Lukas. Raised on the road in Willie’s famed Honeysuckle Rose bus, Lukas inherited his father’s gift. But he’s also his own man—and his own musician. And, along with his band, Promise of the Real, he’ll be appearing at the popular Paia watering hole for two shows this weekend. With a sound that’s described as part “American heart’n’soul” with tinges of Latin, blues, country and funk, this is an outfit not be missed. “When we formed the band, we promised to be real and that’s where the name came from,” says Nelson. “It’s going to go for the rest of my life. I’m not doing it to get famous; I’m just doing it because I like playing.” P.O.R.T.A.L. opens the Friday show; Marty Dread and special guests open on Saturday. 579-8085, charleysmaui.com [Jacob Shafer]

Saddle up, equestrian enthusiasts, for the 2nd annual Maui Horse Show Association Fun Day. The association “provides Maui with sanctioned Western Pleasure, Jumper and Hunter shows and clinics” and seeks to “promote the welfare of horses and ponies.” For riders, they’re hosting events for both mounted PHOTO BY FRANÇOIS MARCHAL ($20 registration) and unmounted ($10 registration) participants, with sign-ups beginning an hour before the festival’s 10am start time. Plus, lots of good-natured fun for the whole ‘ohana, with activities including pony rides, games, face painting and crafts. The event will be held at the Piiholo Ranch (325 Waiahiwi Rd.); fairgoers unfamiliar with this Upcountry location should take Piiholo Rd. to the Waiahiwi fork and follow the signs for approximately 1.5 miles. 870-3877; mauihorseshow.com

Friday (September 3), 7pm at Gerardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, 174 Lahainaluna Rd., Lahaina, $75

Maui rock phenom Erin Smith isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfied sitting at home on her duff writing sonnets to her husband. She needs more. How much more? How about a night of rocking out for the ladies at Mulliganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Blue, an event thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feature music, fun, fashion and hair. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been looking for an excuse to get dressed up PHOTO BY JESSICA PEARL and go out with the girls, right? Maui Thing is featuring a new item every week, and gift certificate giveaways, and Soleil Luna is giving away coupons and gift certificates, while Erin Smith and Wolf will be rocking the room. All Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural-born inspiration and creativity will be pouring into new original music, and the occasional local entertainer will be guest appearing on these hot Wednesday nights; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be pure ear candy. Mulliganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosts from their beautiful perch in Wailea, and serves up a drink with your cover, plus boy-toys get in free. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for the right stilettos already. 874-1131, mulligansontheblue.com [Jen Russo]

Dining at Gerardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a one-ofa-kind experience; the awardwinning contemporary island-French cuisine is unparalleled on Maui. The dining room takes you on a no-ticketneeded trip to New Orleans with its old world charm, veranda and garden tables. Chef Gerard Reversade is recognized as one of our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraordinary culinary masters, and has spent much of his life creating delicacies on the Valley Isle. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw wine dinners very often, so this is an exclusive chance to spend the night immersed in vinatages from the Burgundy region of France, paired with special chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selections. Bon appetit. 661-8939, gerardsmaui.com [JR]

W

hile I want desperately for each of my homemade movies to be Cecil B. DeMented-esque, shot-on-the-ďŹ&#x201A;y genius, alas, not one is even worthy of preservation (read: the tapes have all been destroyed for the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake, lest they kill unsuspecting viewers, a la The Ring). Then again, I suppose I may have given up a little too early. The last independent camcorder venture I can recall was a so-called music video for the Steve Miller Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Space Cowboy,â&#x20AC;? made by me and middle-school pal Leiana. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we did much but dance around my living room wearing rubber alien masks and cheap, wrinkled childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kimonos, but we could not have been more plainly ridiculous. (It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that Leiana was an elďŹ n bean pole and I looked like a raised-by-wolves couch potato.) Mouthing lyrics we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know, the soundtrack is primarily overdubbed with our incessant schoolgirl giggles and the tinny air of a cassette-playing boombox in the background. Merely reďŹ&#x201A;ecting on that sad affair turns my stomach in shame, though I understand that kids these days actually try to look stupid in their videos (which they certainly do not produce on giant, one-eyed shoulder robots that only record on full-sized VHS tapes), and that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some sort of incentive for their antics on YouTube. As for me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad to be (just) old enough to not care about those modern things, and to have imbibed enough substances to permanently cast a comfortable shadow on the shameful memory of my childish cinematic indiscretions. More than moviemakers, Leiana and I fancied ourselves musicians. While we had neither instruments nor know-how, we formed a band with mutual friend Erica. Her parents let us wash their cars repeatedly and perform other odd jobs, and after less time than

it should have taken, we managed to purchased a drum set. From JC Penny. With Erica on drums, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d then hold band practice with me and my starterkit acoustic Fender, which I chose over hula lessons, and the bass Leiana borrowed from her big brother. Since none of us knew how to play anything at all, â&#x20AC;&#x153;band practiceâ&#x20AC;? was not much more than extensive snacking and gossiping about boys. But the coolest thing we didâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in our quest to do, well, whatever it wasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was hike to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rainbow Ridgeâ&#x20AC;? in Olinda and lay in the ďŹ eld where Jimi Hendrix had allegedly held a concert, in a long ago time we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really understand but still wished we were a part of. We thought that by being there we might channel Jimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lingering energy and miraculously learn how to play our instruments. Leiana ended up going to high school at Seabury, while Erica and I were off to King Kekaulike. We got in some sort of argument over that dumb JC Penny drum set, and I never much spoke to either of them again. But I do think of them fondly, about as often as I think of rekindling my pursuits in ďŹ lmmaking and guitar playing. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too late to discover my hidden genius. â&#x2013;

Horoscopes

sign.language.astrology@gmail.com VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) The show must go on, they say, and performers dedicated to this principle have endured tremendous hardship in order to make sure their team isn’t let down by their mishap. How much of your suffering can you put aside to spare others its consequences? How much are you willing to? Those are this week’s questions. Answer them honestly. It’s admirable to put aside some of your own well-being for the greater good of many. However, know ahead of time where and how to draw the line, so that you don’t realize you’ve reached your limit in the middle of the “show.” Calling in an understudy at that point is very awkward—doing so before you’ve begun, however, is perfectly acceptable.

SIGN

AGE LANGU

QUIZunderstood answers 1. King David Kalakaua (“The Merrie Monarch”); 0 2. A. 3. C.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Not everyone is attuned to the same reality you are. In fact, you’re probably sometimes quite shocked at just how differently someone else might perceive a situation you see in quite a specific way. Here’s the problem: neither of you is “right.” That is, you’re both wearing certain filters that skew the scenario in certain (probably different) directions. Neither of you is technically wrong; you’re both actually perfectly correct—for yourselves. Understanding just how malleable reality is—and accepting that there is no one “real” reality— is the key to enjoying your week, and not getting stuck in a conflict that has no other resolution.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) We all appreciate the higher standard you hold yourself to most of the time. But occasionally you need to be willing to set aside that ideal and cut yourself some slack, in the name of getting things done. When you’re miserable, everyone around you is, too, so try not to get yourself to that state of dejection or disappointment. Normally, I’d say go for a good, self-pitying wallow if you need to, but there are more important things afoot. That means letting yourself off the hook, and being content with merely a job done satisfactorily, instead of brilliantly .

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Just because a dream is achievable shouldn’t make it less exciting. In fact, because its fruition is right around the corner, you ought to be thrilled. Try not to feel let down by how ultimately easy it was to get to where you wanted to go—that speaks to how ready you were, not how simple it was. For someone else, this might have been an impossible challenge. Don’t worry—there will be plenty more challenging goals. Some of them will prove unachievable. Enjoy this one, even if it was a no-brainer, no-contest piece of cake.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) You know you need to try a different approach. Given all the paths you’ve already pursued, you probably have a pretty strong inkling about which new method will work best to achieve your goals. You’re dragging your heels because that place is just somewhere you’ve been reluctant to go. However, you’ve tried every other way you could think of, and hit impassable obstacles. I think it’s time to finally acknowledge that there may be no better way, and swallow your distaste long enough to give it a try. Perhaps some success will assuage your antipathy.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Your cynicism tells you that although people can change, they don’t do so very often. Sometimes, in an effort to be realistic, you unwittingly lock people into old behaviors. Even if they normally would act differently, you create parameters that encourage or even require them to behave just as they would have in the past. That’s hardly fair. Can you bring yourself to a place where you will at least allow for and at best actively promote transformation and evolution? Although it goes against the grain of your most pessimistic habits and fixed nature, that, my dear, is this week’s goal.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You’re like a daddy long legs spider who’s lost a few legs. You can still function with five, but losing another might prove disastrous. It’s time to stop taking so many risks and just play it safe for a while. I like you when you’re bold and take chances, and I appreciate how you’ve courageously forged on even when some of those risks haven’t panned out (perhaps buoyed by the successes of all the ones that paid off). However, this week take a break from that approach and stick to the tried and true. When it’s time to boldly take another great gamble again, you’ll know.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Consider the message, not how it was delivered. It’s all too easy to ignore what you’re trying so hard not to hear, and focus instead on the problems with the methods used, which are less than ideal (and might even be cruel, sneaky, or passive-aggressive). However, the only reason people are going to such lengths to communicate in such a roundabout way is that surely this is something you don’t particularly want to acknowledge, and they were afraid of how you’d react if they said it to you directly. Put aside the lousy conveyance and take the time to hear those things you desperately don’t want to, but desperately need to.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Is this deal-breaker as much of a deal-breaker as you thought? Yes, you always told yourself that if you got to this crossroads, you’d know which way to turn. Yet, now that you’re here, the path isn’t as obvious as you thought it would be. This may be because your judgment is clouded; however, it could be that what you thought was so desperately important (in theory, at least) isn’t anymore, or never really was. To ensure that you don’t make a foolish decision because you’re bewildered by hormones, lust, or clever words, however, enlist the aid and advice of a trusted friend.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) When someone’s behavior skews wildly off course, it could be mental illness, drugs, or any number of other problems. However, consider the possibility that this is only new to you. Young adults who come out of the closet may surprise some of their friends and family, for example, but it’s hardly a revelation for them. This week, you need to put aside your own shock, judgment, or distaste for whatever’s been revealed to you, and consider what may be behind it, and how difficult it might have been to get to this place. Then, react with as much compassion as you can muster.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) It’s funny how sometimes, even when they have all (or most) of the power in a situation, some people can be fooled into thinking they have little or none. That ought to sound familiar, although I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t think so. Ask yourself: Isn’t the ball in your court? Don’t you have a hold of the long end of the stick? You have all the leverage, and yet you’re behaving as if you must do exactly as you’re told. This week, please realize, finally, just how much power you actually have, and take ownership of it. It’s always been clear to others that you have the upper hand—once you figure that out, all that’s left is for you to decide what, exactly, you want to do with it.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You don’t usually have trouble setting boundaries. Ask anyone who knows you; it’s very hard to get a Leo to do anything she doesn’t want to do. However, every once in a while, it’s good to allow those boundaries to get trampled on a little. They could be in the wrong places. People change, after all. What once was off limits might now be something you enjoy—and the only way you’d figure that out is by letting someone cross that line. This isn’t about adopting an “anything goes” attitude. However, this week, please notice which walls have stood unquestioned for way too long, and consider taking at least a couple of them down.
