LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR RIPS THE GIPP Some say Ronald Reagan committed treason by undermining then-President Jimmy Carter’s negotiations with Iran during the Hostage Crisis, making deals to sell weapons for the hostages that were released on his inauguration day- and strong evidence supports that (“The Real Reagan,” June 10). Some say he was a war criminal who violated Congressional directives with his Contra war against Nicaragua’s legitimate government, and he probably was. Some say his administration welcomed greed and financial corruption, setting an example of dishonest accounting that prefigured the Enron culture and allowed the savings and loan banking collapse—and it is likely true. Some say he polished the use of partisan regulatory appointees whose actual job was to oversee abuse of the resources and people their agencies were designed to protect, and he probably did. Some say his extravagant support of Mujahaddin guerrillas resisting Russian control of Afghanistan created trained and dedicated Islamic terrorist groups like Al Qaeda, and they are likely right. But this charming actor’s most important legacy may be his repeal of the FCC’s Fairness Doctrine. The consolidation of commercial radio, TV, print, and film media sources under a few companies, whose management varies from partisan to timid—has made free press and speech an endangered species. Heavy investment in PR “perception management,” the barrage from hired opinionators, the “reporters” on a second partisan paycheck and the systematic exclusion of those who actually question authority has left much of the public thoroughly, if uneasily misinformed. Our inheritance: voodoo economics and excommunicated history. -Daniel Grantham, Haiku

MISSES RONZO

the same without ex-President Ronald Reagan. What impressed me the most, since I do not follow politics is this: After the Iran Contra scandal that was done during his term, President Ronald Reagan apologized for all the people who were involved and took the full blame upon himself, on public television, his fault or not, as a leader he took the guilt on his shoulders. I am sorry, America. How many leaders, managers, “bosses” would do this now? Admit to their mistake, whether it was their fault or not. “I cannot tell a lie, I cut down the cherry tree.” If I had known this, I would have registered to vote and voted for his re-election term. No candidate now shows as much integrity as did Ronald Reagan. Remember the Gipper. -Anonymous, via email The Editor responds: Your letter’s great, Anonymous—though I seriously doubt that’s your real name—but it includes a blatant historical inaccuracy I’d like to correct. (Probably due, no doubt, to your not following politics.) Anyway, when Reagan went on TV in 1986 as the Iran-Contra scandal was smashing his administration to bits—selling weapons to Iran in exchange for hostages and then funneling the profits to the Contras’ bloody civil war in Nicaragua will do that—the Gipper actually lied to the American people, saying that U.S. officials didn’t do the said unconstitutional acts.

ehbrah@mauitime.com I was driving behind you the other day when you flipped your cigarette butt out the window. What were you thinking? That this island is an ashtray? That when you throw something out the window it magically disappears? Or that you have personal servants who follow you around to pick up your garbage? You must be the same guy I saw relaxing at the beach, having a smoke. But when you left your spot, it wasn’t so nice any more because it was full of your cigarette butts. I know those butts are disgusting, but why are they so bad that you can only bring yourself to throw them on the ground instead of taking them back with you? Or are they just too heavy to carry? Your right to smoke does not include the right to trash this island.

‘Everyone Looked so Grown Up’

sented speeches of encouragement for their fellow classmates. Salutatorian and class president Pavao had won a scholarship for masterminding the building of an outdoor pavilion earlier in the year, allowing kids to exercise when it rains. He reminded the class how easy kindergarten had seemed, how silly the first couples in the class had been, and how “everyone looked so grown up” at junior prom. He also spoke about fun parties, first cars and spring break. They sang their class song, “Been There Before,” about responsibility for the future. The band was made up of a few graduating seniors playing instruments in their gowns, while everyone else jammed along in dance. Finally, finally, it was time to throw their hats up into the air and have them fall all over the place. Nobody cared where they landed, because school was out! UB40 songs played through the speakers as the graduated class filed out exactly the way they came. This time they were free from school, but their connection to the community was still intact. The kids scattered around the makai side of the campus while families, teachers and friends waited patiently in line to place a lei around their necks. Necklaces of flowers, shells, candy and chocolate built up higher and higher around these proud graduate’s faces as they grinned widely from the love of their families. Some smiles were barely visible as the flower necklaces gathered higher, blocking out all but their eyes. A seemingly endless line of big trucks drove out of the parking lot, honking in congratulations as we left the ceremony. MTW

School’s out for graduating Hana High seniors It was a warm and sunny day in Hana. Strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” wafted through the air as my friend and I sat in his treehouse. We were looking out over the elementary and high school campus. It was June 5, the day of the graduation ceremony. You see, the Hana High graduation is not your average year-end event. The whole community comes out to celebrate the teenagers who have worked so hard to receive their diplomas. For the most part these kids have attended school together since kindergarten and form a family among themselves. The love in the air was palpable as we all filled the bleachers and chairs under rustling shade trees. Family members and well-wishers included Pat Benatar and Kris Kristofferson. The 23 students of the Hana High graduating class marched one at a time through ivy-covered trellises as everyone clapped for them. Then they stood patiently in their dark-green gowns for two hours while adults talked about all sorts of important things. There were proposed guidelines for life, excerpts read from key books, words of advice from politicians and teachers. Speeches were presented in Hawaiian and English, scholarships were awarded to help the students continue their educations at Maui Community College, University of Hawaii and other trade schools and universities. Eddy Pu—aka Mr. Aloha, retired park service employee at Ohe’o Gulch and current coconut-stand man—presented two $250 awards and one for $500. “I wish I could give scholarships to everyone in the class, but visitors don’t have enough money,” he said. “I love you all.” This being Hana, halfway through the ceremony the clouds shifted and a light smattering of rain fell on the gathered

Man, that’s a lot of leis crowd. Guest speaker Senator J. Kalani English reminded everyone that rain can be a blessing from the ancestors, as most of the graduating students have 1000-year-old family connections to the land. “Wherever you go your legs will take you, your mind will guide you, but we rest on your shoulders,” said Mr. Castro, their guidance counselor. “You are from Hana.” Then students presented their family and friends with leis that they were invited to come up to the front and accept with a hug. Top students Michelle Horen and Mika’ele Pavao pre-

LCDoingWatch Stings The following tale comes to you directly from recently released files of your Maui County Department of Liquor Control. No names have been changed to protect the innocent, guilty or merely imbibed.

ESTABLISHMENT Rodeo General Store, Makawao

DATE Jan. 30, 2004

TIME 9:45 p.m.

VIOLATION Section 08-101-60(b)(1)(A): Selling or furnishing liquor to a minor Section 08-101-61(b): Failure to check or properly check identification

LC OFFICER Harry W. Matsuura, Sr.

REPORT We’ve all watched in recent months the sharp upswing in “minor decoy operations,” whereby a couple LC investigators, Maui Police officers and one or two undercover minors go bar-hopping to see if they can buy booze from careless bars and convenience stores. Now most of us agree that kids buying liquor is a bad thing. But the zeal with which the LC is stinging small bars and stores is chilling. Of course, more than a few stores are, given the heat and the possibility of incurring a couple thousand bucks in fines, incredibly reckless. In the case of Rodeo General Store, clerk/duty manager Roxanne Baylosis was very aware of the LC’s methods, but it doesn’t seem to have helped her one bit. On the night in question she’d been on duty since 2:30 that afternoon. A young-looking male came up to the counter with the alcohol he wished to purchase. Baylosis told him she needed to check his ID because “they are out there doing stings.” Grumbling that it was his birthday, the young male eventually complied. His ID showed he had just turned 23, so Baylosis completed the sale. We know all this because the customer standing behind the young male was minor decoy Chalsea-Marie A.H. Honokaupu, who was in the process of doing a sting and overheard everything. Honokaupu then went to the counter and presented a 24-oz. bottle of Corona and her legal Hawaii State Drivers License that included a bar in nice bold red letters above the photo stating “UNDER 21 UNTIL 04/08/2005.” Baylosis then rang up Honokaupu’s sale without talking to her or even asking to see her ID.

LOCALNEWS MONDAY, JUN. 7 There’s great news! Rapes of adult women are down in the U.S.! But there’s also bad news—rapes of adult women are up in Hawaii. All this news comes courtesy of the Sex Abuse Treatment Center, reports todays’ Associated Press. As is usual with statistics like this, officials aren’t sure whether the increase is due to more crimes or more crime reporting. Oh, but don’t worry—this is apparently a good thing. “The strength is in the high number of people reporting sexual assaults because of a strong relationship with law enforcement,” Center director Adriana Ramelli told the AP. What a comfort.

in traffic, you might look up the hill and blame those pretty houses—living high on land they should be farming. And that’s the easy, quick answer, but it’s not the true answer. In fact, that traffic light has far more to do with the hundreds of as-yet unbuilt homes—courtesy of developers Peter Martin and Jim Riley—that will over the next few years cover the old Laniupoko farmland. But don’t worry—I’m sure those homes will be much prettier than the vast, rolling hills that sit there now.

THURSDAY, JUN. 10

Tonight’s the night a bunch of lefties— yeah, there are still a few left, apparently—plan to raise hell outside the Maui Tropical Plantation to protest Governor Linda Lingle’s big $100-aplate fundraiser. But the protesters aren’t really taking issue with Lingle’s fundraiser per se, but with her partisan support of Fearless Leader George W. Bush. “Let’s show the governor that we, the people of Maui, do not support Bush’s policies,” read a news release from the group Democracy for America. And while I’m all for shining a light on Lingle’s waytoo-generous praise for fellow Republican Bush, fairness demands that I mention that good-guy Mayor Alan Arakawa has since December been an “honorary cochair” of the Bush campaign’s Hawaii Leadership Team… Speaking of leadership, that new light at Laniupoko that’s been taunting drivers headed in and out of the West Side finally became active today. And, in a stunning example of how expectations can be met, traffic slowed to a crawl on both sides of the light. Now as you sit in your car, slowly creeping along

In these days of soldiers marching off to the Middle East, brave firefighters charging up burning stairwells and recently deceased presidents and jazz artists, we hear the word “hero” tossed about nearly as often as the phrase “J. Lo got married.” And frankly, it’s starting to piss me off. Heroes are people who sacrifice to save the rest of us. Heroes are people who put their lives on the line to make sure we can get home to the wife and tuck the kids in bed at night and clean up whatever mess Rex the irritable Black Lab made in the kitchen. Heroes are rare, priceless individuals in short supply. But now, today, thanks to today’s Maui News, we can sleep a little easier tonight, because of two men who more than meet the minimum qualifications for heroes. Of course, I’m speaking of Daniel Kahaikupuna Lealoha and Frederick Ponce, who have—with no thought to their own personal well-being—stepped forward to fight the good fight. That’s right: They’re suing both the State of Hawaii and the County of Maui in hopes of overturning the ban on cockfighting. In fact, the two men even claim that the ban on pitting poultry against poultry while guys clutching bills cheer has

caused damages, including—says the News— “loss of important culture and traditional rights.” Why has it taken so long for someone to take on Big Brother and his attempt to outlaw having steel claw-armed chicken fight steel claw-armed chicken in a pit of death? … This just in: The Lakers Suck.

FRIDAY, JUN. 11 The good folks at the federal government decide to honor the late President Ronald Reagan by kicking back at home. You remember Reagan—old guy, made a lot of movies, conquered the mighty empire of Grenada. For more information on Reagan or other U.S. presidents, do not consult your local library, as it’s closed today as well.

SATURDAY, JUN. 12 Speaking of kicking back, it was reported today that on Aug. 11 Hawaiian Airlines will stop their daily 717 flights to the islands of

Lanai and Molokai. This will, naturally, cost some people their jobs, but hey—if Hawaiian doesn’t want to fly anyone more, who’s to stop them? Your crazy neighbor who’s talking your ear off about the hidden costs that come with aluminum siding? Those fatcats in Washington? That’ll be the day. But seriously: High prices and no service—is there anything inter-island air service can’t provide?

SUNDAY, JUN. 13 Tired of spending the last five decades in the minority in the Honolulu state legislature, the Grand Old Party has vowed to foment a “revolution”—probably doing for our state what Dubya’s been doing for America. You know, starving government so private enterprise can run wild, that sort of thing. They’ll need a revolution to do it, though— Democrats currently outnumber Republicans in the state house 36 to 15. And, as political analyst Tom Coffman pointed out in today’s Honolulu Advertiser, they likely aren’t getting there riding Governor Linda Lingle’s break-up-the-school-board wagon. In any case, state GOP chairman Brennon Morioka gave the Advertiser an earful of campaign-speak that could have easily come from Ralph Nader, Ross Perot or Marv Albert for that matter: “We’re tired of the status quo,” he told Advertiser reporters Lynda Arakawa and Gordon Y. K. Pang. “We want change, we want things to move forward. And we’re not going to stand for it. And maybe 2004 will be our revolution.” Still, the Democrats did come to power back in 1954 because the Republicans were fat and happy. Fancy rhetoric and historical trends aside, I’m sure that right wing revolution in Hawaiian politics is a long way off… Okay, it’s here. Today’s Maui News tells us that great Holo Ka’a Public Transit system run by Akina Aloha Tours the county finally set up two years ago is pretty much dead. Or will be in a couple weeks. Guess what? No funding, and no promise of increased funding in the future to make up for the near-complete lack of funding now. Specifically, the Maui County Council recently authorized half a million bucks to go to the bus contract, but Akina says they need a good $1 million on top of that to keep going for another year.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD HEADY PROBLEM In January, University of Utah hospital surgeons removed half the skull of Briana Lane, 22 and unemployed, in order to save her life after an auto accident, but because putting the skull back in place was not quite an emergency, it was delayed by negotiations over cost. The skull remained in a freezer for three months, with Lane battling serious pain (and wearing a plastic helmet for protection, feeling her brain “shifting” on her) while the hospital negotiated with the state Medicaid office, which pays only for long-term “disabilities.” Her skull was finally reattached on April 30.

ADVENTURES WITH LUBRICANTS In January, a National Park Service ranger arrested Marvin Buchanon for drug possession along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Buchanon had been discovered sitting in a truck one evening, naked, covered with baby oil and with women’s underwear at his feet. And in a widely reported incident in May, Roger Chamberlain, 44, was arrested in Binghamton, N.Y., after having allegedly smeared 14 containers’ worth of petroleum jelly on nearly every inch of the walls and furniture of a Motel 6 room (and who was found shortly afterward at another motel, himself covered with the substance).

SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE

BRIGHT IDEAS

Oklahoma state Rep. Mike O’Neal, married with three children and the author of the state’s proposed “Defense of Marriage Act,” was charged with a felony in February for grabbing a woman’s buttocks in an Oklahoma City bar. He was also accused of making lewd comments to, and chasing after, her. And one of the sponsors of Georgia’s sanctity-of-marriage constitutional amendment (introduced in January), state Sen. Bill Stephens, was divorced in 1991 after 15 years of marriage but then had the marriage no-counted (“annulled”) in order to marry a Catholic woman in 1994, according to a public records check by Atlanta’s Southern Voice.

Among the secret British military plans recently revealed from classified documents: (1) a huge landmine to be planted during World War II on the German plains (to prevent the Soviet army from overreaching), to be kept at a warm, detonatable temperature by the body heat of thousands of live chickens underground (according to Britain’s National Archives in April) and (2) a post-World War II plan disclosed in May to equip pigeons as suicide dive-bombers carrying explosives and biological agents to a targeted area. The military said its research showed that homing pigeons could be tricked via electromagnetic fields into sensing that their “home” was actually the target area, but pigeon experts say it is more likely the pigeons would have returned to dive-bomb Britain.

MALPRACTICE Despite the 39-day waiting list for brain operations at the Queens Medical Center in Nottingham, England, the hospital suspended neurosurgeon Terence Hope in March (after 18 years’ service), not for substandard work but because he had been accused of taking extra croutons for his soup in the hospital cafeteria, without paying. (The suspension was lifted three days later.)

What you’re holding in your hot little hands right now is the Official Maui Time Maui Film Festival Guide/Issue/Thing. We’ve put a lot of time and effort and information into this Guide/Issue/Thing, so we’d appreciate it if you held onto it for a while. Basically, we’ve got everything you need to know about the Festival. You want to know where to park? Check. Want the inside dope on some of this year’s more colorful features? Check. Want to know the rundown on all the big flicks, shorts and cartoons? Check, check and check. Want free tickets and passes to all the best stuff? You wish. The 5th annual Festival is the brainchild of Barry and Stella Rivers and their spiritual adviser Chew Qi, The Wonder Dog. Bigger than ever, this year’s lineup sports more than 70 films, some showing on Maui for the first time anywhere. Basically, you need this Guide/Issue/Thing more than ever. Hey—CNN is here, filing 32 separate stories on the Festival on its main cable network as well as Headline News and CNN.com. And we’re not even mentioning all the big Hollywood celebritytypes that will be standing around at all them VIP parties, talking about whatever it is Hollywood celebrity-types talk about. Anyway, the venues are what you’ve come to expect. Many of the screenings will take place at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center (MACC), at both their Castle and McCoy Theaters. But once again, there will be films at the Maui Digital SkyDome and at the Celestial Cinema, allowing hundreds of people to watch movies the way they were meant to be—under the warm Hawaiian sky. This year’s free SandDance celebration on Wailea Beach will highlight some of Charlie Chaplin’s better shorts. Panel discussions will run Jun. 19, from 11:30 in the morning to four in the afternoon. This year’s topics include how to make message pictures that work, how the movie industry really works and the practical and technical hazards that come with making some of the more extreme movies out there. So in conclusion: The Maui Film Festival’s here, it’s a big deal and you need to go and watch a lot of movies. We command it! MTW BARRY AND HIS SPIRITUAL ADVISER

A-D ing the Arab world?” The film goes behind-thescenes with Al Jazeera, the controversial, “independent” news network broadcast by satellite and watched by over 40 million Arabic viewers. It has been branded “Osama bin-Laden’s mouthpiece” and has received intense criticism from U.S. administration officials for showing images of Iraqi casualties and American POWs that American viewers never saw, while at the same time, it has been censored in many repressive Arab states for what they consider the network’s democratic perspectives.

CREATURE COMFORMTS: CATS OR DOGS

‘AFRICA MASHARIKI NAFSI:’ THE SOUL OF EAST AFRICA

THE BLUE BUTTERFLY

-A‘AFRICA MASHARIKI NAFSI:’ THE SOUL OF EAST AFRICA This pure artistic visionary film by Maui photographer and filmmaker Paige DePonte is not just a documentary, but a film that propels audiences out of the theater, launching them onto a breathtaking journey of the true heart and soul of East Africa, focusing on Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.

AMERICA’S HEART AND SOUL Everyone dreams of hitting the road, traveling around the country like John Steinbeck, meeting new people and seeing parts of the country you never knew existed. When acclaimed cinematographer/director Louis Schwartzberg finally did so, taking along his 35mm camera for company, he found a nation of individuals, no two alike. He had been collecting stories for years, and finally decided to combine his passion for images with his interest in human drama.

-BBALANCE This expressionistic cinematic portrait of artist Kevin Morgan and his personal avenue of creative expression explores the basic human need for physical, psychological and spiritual balance.

William Hurt stars in this tale of Pete Carlton, a terminally ill 10-year-old boy whose one last dream is to catch the most beautiful butterfly on Earth—the mythic and elusive Blue Morpho, found only in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America. His mother Teresa persuades Alan Osborn (Hurt), a renowned entomologist, to take herself and her wheelchairbound son on a trip to the jungle to search for the butterfly.

The two most popular pets go head to head in this Academy Award-winning animated documentary from Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, Rex the Runt).

-COverworked and hung-over, Daddy must play babysitter to five year-old Rosie when his ex-girlfriend drops off her car and their daughter at his repair shop. But a mechanic’s workshop is no place for a fairy princess... or is it?

CONSENT A couple of college coeds consult a sexual consent form in bed.

CONTROL ROOM Jehane Noujaim (Startup.com), an award-winning Arab-American filmmaker who has lived within and embraced both worlds, provides an opportunity to re-examine what is perhaps the most pressing question of international relations today: “Is America radicalizing or stabiliz-

DANNY DECKCHAIR Sometimes it takes just one crazy or impulsive action, one gigantic leap of the imagination, to create change in your life. In this light-hearted comedy about starting over, cement truck driver Danny (Rhys Ifans: Notting Hill, Human Nature) escapes his suburban prison and his scheming girlfriend (Justine Clarke) and blasts into the skies in a garden chair tied with helium balloons. A mighty thunderstorm blows him clean off the map and spits him out far away over the lush green town of Clarence, where he rockets into the world of Glenda (Miranda Otto: Human Nature, The Lord of the Rings), the town’s only parking cop. While the media back home run riot with the story of his disappearance, Danny gets to reinvent himself in Clarence and in the adventure discovers a true soul mate in Glenda.

BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS A satirical comedy as well as love story, this film marks the directorial debut of actor/writer Stephen Fry (Peter’s Friends, Gosford Park). Adapted from the classic novel Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh, the film is set in the 1930’s and concerns a social set known to the adoring press as the “right Young Things.” Adam (newcomer Stephen Cambpell Moore) and his friends are young, wealthy, witty, party-going creatures who embrace every innovation, from the gramaphone to the telephone to “naughty salt.” Amidst the madness, Adam, who is well connected but broke, is desperately trying to get enough money to marry the beautiful Nina (Emily Mortimer: Lovely and Amazing, Elizabeth). While his attempts to raise cash are constantly thwarted, their friends seem to self-destruct, one-by-one, in an endless search for newer and faster sensations. Finally, when events out of their control come crashing into the world, they are forced to reassess their lives and what they value the most.

CONTROL ROOM

Maui Film Festival @Wailea EVERYDAY PEOPLE On the island Manhattan, experiencing many of the same runaway problems of overdevelopment and gentrification as Maui, this film follows a day at Raskin’s diner, a family-run restaurant in Brooklyn, as news spreads of its sale to an upscale developer. Over the course of the long, tense day, the working class and multi-generational staff and customers have to grapple with a suddenly cloudy future. Like so many of America’s working poor, their lives are at the mercy of forces beyond their control. From the secretly sympathetic owner, to the wealthy waitress who wants to be a poet, to the single mother just trying to hold it all together, all must make choices about what one is willing to do for money, the role of education, cultural loyalties and familial responsibilities.

EXPLORING THE WORLD OF AL JAZEERA

reports and near round-the-clock tributes to the late President Ronald Reagan didn’t betray a “pro-American” leaning. The station first began broadcasting in November, 1996 from Dohar, Qatar (“Al Jazeera” is Arabic for “the peninsula”). It’s funded by the Qatari royal family, which gave the station the mandate to probe any nation in the Arab world that isn’t Qatar. It took very little time for the governments in Cairo, Ankara, Riyadh and just about everywhere else in the Middle East to call for an end to the station. Of course, mere criticism is nothing compared to America’s handling of Al Jazeera—an “accidental” cruise missile launch or two on station bureaus in Iraq and Afghanistan. You’d think a virtually-free news organization would be something the U.S. government would want to support, but apparently not. Jehane Noujaim—who helmed the superlative Startup.com a couple years ago— directs Control Room. Startup was a masterpiece of understatement—a narration-free documentary that still managed to get eerily close to the inner workings of the web firm Govworks. Noujaim intimately showed how a bunch of college pals deluded themselves into thinking their tiny website was worth billions, then began turning on each other when times got tough for them and every other dot.com out there.

FEATURE

If you measure a television news network by the number of governments it’s pissed off, then Al Jazeera is the best in the world. No other network—not CNN, not BBC, not even that one with all the rich white fat guys—is so thoroughly loathed and attacked as Al Jazeera. Then again, no network does so much hard-hitting investigative reporting. With its website http://english.aljazeera.net, the network is now available in English to anyone online. Now Al Jazeera itself is the subject of a new investigative film. Control Room goes behind the scenes of the Arab world’s most famous news channel, showing us the anchors and reporters and pressures that come with being the world’s most controversial news organization. But to paint Al Jazeera as just an Arab CNN is to miss the point—unlike CNN, Al Jazeera is interesting. Their stories are hard-hitting and thoroughly investigated. Recent pieces have dealt with problems U.S. forces are having training a new Iraqi army; an Ankara, Turkey, Chamber of Commerce report on how organized crime “plagues” the Turkish economy and how 15,000 antiquities are still missing from Iraqi museums, stolen during the looting that plagued Baghdad when U.S. forces swept into the city last year. Of course, they take a hard look at American actions in the regions. Some Western observers have criticized the station for airing tapes and statements made by Osama bin Laden or other members of the Al Qaida organization. Others merely object to Al Jazeera’s “pro-Arab” bias—as though Fox News’ steady stream of positive Iraqi war

DEAR FRANKIE In this sentimental festival darling, nine-year-old Frankie and his single mum Lizzie (Emily Mortimer) have been on the move ever since Frankie can remember, most recently arriving in a seaside Scottish town. Wanting to protect her deaf son from the truth that they’ve run away from his estranged father, Lizzie has invented a story that Dad is away at sea on the HMS Accra. Every few weeks, Lizzie writes Frankie a makebelieve letter from his father, telling of his adventures in exotic lands. As Frankie tracks the ship’s progress around the globe, he discovers that it is due to dock in his hometown. With the real HMS Accra arriving in only a fortnight, Lizzie must choose between telling Frankie the truth or finding the perfect stranger to play Frankie’s father for just one day.

FILM FESTIVAL

This inspiring documentary tells the epic account of Time cover story subject Erik Weihenmayer—the first blind man to summit Mt. Everest. As if that were not enough of an achievement, the Farther Than The Eye Can See Climbing Expedition included several other historic milestones, including having the most members from one expedition team reach the 29,035 foot-high summit in a single day, the first American father/son team to reach the summit and the oldest person to summit Mt. Everest. The groundbreaking journey also made film history by shooting the first High Definition footage from the top of the mountain.

When Charlie the Tramp wanders into a mission he is smitten by Edna and puts back the collection box which he has taken. Reformed, he becomes a policeman and is assigned to rough-and-tumble Easy Street. Unable to trick or beat Eric the Tough, he puts Eric’s head in a gas pipe and anesthetizes him. A hero, he now helps many poor people living on Easy Street. Eric escapes jail, Edna is kidnapped, but Charlie (recharged after sitting on a doper’s needle) conquers all.

CREATURE COMFORTS

FESTIVAL EXPRESS Maui had Jimi Hendrix’s legendary Rainbow Bridge concert, and Canada had Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and The Band performing and living together on a train for five straight days in 1970. Some 35 years after the “Canadian Woodstock,” the never-before seen footage has been rediscovered and edited, along with new interviews, into this rockin’ documentary.

THE FLOOR WALKER After causing havoc on the sales floor Chaplin goes to the office floor. There he runs into the store inspector (who looks exactly like him) who has just robbed the safe and knocked out the manager. Charlie thinks he is in front of a mirror till he notices that his “image” holds the bag of loot. A comedy of mistaken identities and some of the funniest moments you’ll ever see on an escalator.

JAWS UNDERGROUND

THE FUTURE OF FOOD There’s a revolution going on in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America that is also creating a tsunami-sized wave of interest and controversy on Maui. The battle over the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in our food is being fought behind the closed doors of corporate boardrooms, courtrooms and government agencies. This challenging documentary offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled GMO products that have quietly filled grocery store shelves over the past decade.

The biggest waves ever surfed in the world are right here on Maui but one might be surprised to find out just who else has been surfing them. In short, local boys Kaleo, Amadeo, Archie Kalepa, Mark Anderson, and Ian Walsh, among others. Jaws Underground pays tribute to these unsung heroes of big wave riding, and tells their stories in their own words. Witness the epic surf that crashed on Maui’s coastline on November 26th, 2003 and January 10th, 2004, two of the biggest days of surf ever recorded. Unique “you-are-there” P.O.V. angles capture the thrill of these world-class athletes who put their lives on the line for the ultimate challenge of living to tell the tale of their personal triumphs.

-GGARDEN STATE The road to self-discovery leads to New Jersey in this insightful, charming debut from writer/director Zach Braff (Scrubs). Braff plays Andrew Largeman, a moderately successful Hollywood actor/writer, who has been living in a state of emotional suspended animation. His father Gideon (Ian Holm), a psychiatrist, has for years shrouded his son’s emotions with prescriptions, which have done double duty by keeping a family secret between them quiet. But when Large must return home for his mother’s funeral, he makes the big decision to do the trip pill-free.

THE GREAT YEAR Just as the Earth’s spin on its axis causes day and night and our planet’s annual orbit around the Sun is responsible for the ongoing cycle of the seasons, what if there was some greater celestial cycle, lasting thousands of years, slowly influencing the rise and fall of civilization across the globe? This documentary investigates the common belief found in many ancient cultures that the larger patterns of the stars and heavenly bodies are ultimately responsible for the great ages here on earth. To the ancient Mayans, we are entering the time of the Fifth Sun; Hindu and Vedic scholars spoke of the Yuga Cycle, a great circular progression of ages; and in Ancient Greece, Plato taught of a large cycle of time that would slowly return us to a “Golden Age.” He called this cycle The Great Year.

THE LITTLE TRAMP HONORING CHARLIE CHAPLIN www.downtoearth.org

BY: ELAINE GAST

FEATURE

C h a r l i e Chaplin is the man who made it cool to be called a tramp. This year’s Maui Film Festival celebrates Chaplin’s films at the SandDance Theater, featuring free screenings on Wailea beach. C’mon, you know Charlie Chaplin. He’s that funny looking English fellow waddling around in silent films, wearing baggy pants and a derby cap with a square tuft of a mustache. Behind the screen, he was a motion picture master who not only financed and produced almost all his films, but was also the author, actor, director and composer. Chaplin hit it big in the silent era, with his films accompanied only by a lone organ player behind the curtain. It takes a pretty funny guy to get people laughing at a time without sound while poverty and war prevailed. Moviegoers back then didn’t even have popcorn to munch on, to say nothing of Sour Patch Kids. Man, times were tough. But Chaplin portrayed often-penniless characters—workers, janitors, vagabonds, drunks—showing these common, candyless folk how they could rise above it all. Or at the least, find comic relief by smashing a pie in someone’s face. A king of physical comedy, Chaplin could take melancholy subjects and morph them into fallover-yourself funny. But when talking movies hit the theaters in 1928, Chaplin wasn’t laughing. “Talkies are spoiling the oldest art in the world—the art of pantomime,” he said at the time. “They are ruining the great beauty of silence, and defeating the meaning of the screen.” His views became increasingly unpopular, and in the 1950’s, Chaplin was kicked out of the States, suspected of “unAmerican activities.” Maybe it was his mustache that looked too un-American? Or could it be that Wisconsin Senator Joe McCarthy was just a little paranoid? Regardless, Chaplin got the last pie in their face. He was invited back to the U.S. in 1972 to receive an Academy Award for achievement, shortly after which Queen Elizabeth II knighted him. Not bad for your average little tramp. See free showings of Chaplin’s films the SandDance Theater, Jun. 17-19 at 10 p.m. at Wailea Beach. Featured films include: The Pawn Shop, The Rink, One A.M (Thursday); The Tramp, The Vagabond, The Cure (Friday); Easy Street, The Floor Walker and The New Janitor (Saturday).

In what is sure to be this year’s Maui Film Festival box office surprise, audiences meet Napoleon Dynamite—Preston, Idaho’s reluctant teen hero. The Sundance audience favorite captures the comedy, tragedy and disorientation of high school, complete with piñatas, a school dance and a very funny race for Student Body President.

-LLITTLE BLACK BOOT In this Cinderella for the new millennium, Cindy is the prince who leaves her boot behind at the prom for her ladylove to track down.

LOVE ME IF YOU DARE Of this eccentric romantic dramedy that has been favorably compared to the sensational Academy Award-nominated Amelie, writer/director Yann Samuell has said, “All I knew in the beginning was that I wanted to make a movie about love, games and the search for a never-ending childhood.” What emerged in the end is part ultra-modern cartoon fairy tale, part bold psychological probe into the games we play in life and love. Julien and Sophie meet as children and devise a game as an outlet for their imaginations and an escape from the oftensad world surrounding them.

-MMARIA FULL OF GRACE This winner of the Audience Award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival and acting and directing awards at the Berlin International Film Festival tells the story of one young woman’s journey from a small Colombian town to the streets of New York. A bright, spirited 17-year old, Maria Alvarez (Moreno) lives with three generations of her family in a cramped house in rural Colombia and works stripping thorns from flowers in a rose plantation.

MANA KEA: TEMPLE UNDER SEIGE Although the mountain volcano Mauna Kea last erupted more than 3600 years ago, it is still generating heat today as the center of a burning controversy over whether the peak should be used for astronomical observation or preserved as a wahi pana, a cultural landscape sacred to the Hawaiian people. The summit is regarded by many in the international astronomy community as the best place on earth to study the heavens, and contains the greatest concentration of telescopic power anywhere. However, there is a deep cultural, spiritual and familial relationship between the mountain and generations of Hawaiians.

METALLICA: SOME KIND OF MONSTER Three years in the making, this new film from acclaimed documentary filmmakers Berlinger and Sinofsky (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost) provides a mesmerizing, in-depth portrait of the most successful heavy metal band of all time, as they faced monumental personal and professional challenges while recording St. Anger, their first studio album of original songs in five years.

OF WIND AND WAVES

THE NEW JANITOR Chaplin the janitor is fired from his job when he throws a bucket of water out the window, which accidentally lands on his boss. Little does he know, the boss is stealing money to pay off his gambling debts. When the boss is caught by his secretary, Charlie comes to the rescue to save both her and the money.

THE NOTEBOOK In this sweeping and timeless romance based on the best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks (Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, A Bend in the Road), a young wealthy woman comes to the coastal town of Seabrook, North Carolina in the 1940’s to visit her family. Still in her teens, Allie Hamilton (Mean Girls’ Rachel McAdams) meets local mill-worker Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling: The Believer, Remember the Titans) at a carnival, and over the course of one passionate and carefree summer in the South, the two fall deeply in love. Her parents and the sudden outbreak of World War II drive them apart, but both continue to be haunted by memories of each other.

-OOF WIND AND WAVES: THE LIFE OF WOODY BROWN This short documentary tells the life story of Woody Brown, a 92-year-old legend in the worlds of surfing, sailing and soaring. Brown has not only lived a life full of seemingly endless adventure and accomplishment, including inventing the modern catamaran and setting world gliding records, but he has done so with a kind of selflessness, simplicity and generosity that have made him a role model for generations of Hawaiian and Hawaiian-hearted people.

PARALLEL LINES When filmmaker Nina Davenport hops in her car and heads cross-country after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, she uses her video camera to unlock the personal stories of hope, loss and redemption of the strangers and unexpected soul mates she meets along the way. Much more than a singular portrait of 9/11, this funny, intimately insightful and life-affirming documentary is a spiritual snapshot of rural America.

The tidal bore wave occurs as the result of a combination of lunar, tidal and river conditions, providing the ultimate Amazon jungle surfers adventure. Ross Clarke-Jones and Carlos Burle, two of the world’s leading surfers, lead a motley crew through the jungle to the world’s largest river to attempt to ride this muddy, mysterious and seemingly endless monster wave in this combination of Apocalypse Now and Endless Summer.

PROTEUS This award-winning documentary weaves poetry, photomontage, mind-blowing animation, oceanography, technology, history and myth to tell the story of Ernst Haeckel. The 19th century biologist, artist and visionary, who found in the depths of the sea an ecstatic and visionary fusion of science and art, was an inspiration to scientific giants such as Charles Darwin and Thomas Edison.

There are a number of awards given out at this year’s Maui Film Festival, to famous types like Woody Harrelson, Bill Maher and Angela Bassett. But the guy winning the inaugural Trailblazer Award is producer Ted Hope. His company This is That has produced 50 films including the critically acclaimed 21 Grams, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, In the Bedroom, The Ice Storm and The Brothers McMullen. The honor is for “producing movies that matter in a world that does not always make sense,” as well as being excellent and creative and all that. But missing from the Festival tribute handed out to the press is any mention of the critical role Hope played in stopping a plan last year that threatened to shut out independent filmmakers from consideration for major awards like the Golden Globe or Oscar. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) began threatening a so-called “screener ban” last fall—an end to the old practice of filmmakers sending screener tapes of their movies to award judges. Seemingly an innocuous decision, such a ban would have made it nearly impossible for indy-filmmakers to compete for awards, since their low budgets and minimal distribution networks often meant many judges had never even heard of their work. Hope heard about the pending decision when making his usual New York-Baltimore commute. Talking to his head of distribution, Hope asked how they were planning to send out screener copies of his new film American Splendor. His distributor told him they probably weren’t sending any, since a ban was coming into effect—a response Hope said appalled him. “Lots of people had conspiracy theories,” Hope said, explaining why the big studios were considering a ban. “I always wish there were conspiracy theories. I wish they cared enough [about independent films]. But it was their level of arrogance—they thought the only movies that matter are the big blockbusters that get pirated. [They forgot that] as long as tapes get into the critics hands, these films get noticed.” Hope was looking at some cold arithmetic. He’d just spent the last five years watching independent and “specialized” films—typically darker, stranger or just more colorful than big studio productions—gain a real foothold in the movie industry.

HOW TED HOPE HELPED SAVE SPECIALIZED FILMS

FEATURE

Whether you scuba dive, surf or paddle, this “Jaws for the 21st Century,” a spine–tingling drama about two scuba divers accidentally stranded in shark-infested waters, will have you holding your breath for 90 minutes! No mechanical or computer-generated special effects were used in the making of this film. When you see the sharks in the water, they’re real!

which cost $3 million to make, had brought in ten times that, allowing him to further his distribution and make more movies. “It was a threat to movies and my overall livelihood,” said Hope. “I had to keep deals going. I was shocked there was no outcry.” Hope began querying other distributors. They told him not to worry. “I had the sense to know I’d better worry even more,” he said. Eventually, Hope and and a few others managed to get 300 individuals—including Robert Redford and Francis Ford Coppola—to sign a protest against the proposed screener ban. The protest ran as an ad in Variety, which got Hope a meeting with MPAA president Jack Valenti. Then things stopped happening. Nothing substantive came of the Valenti meeting. People told Hope not to ruffle feathers. He and his allies responded by suing the MPAA. It was just before Thanksgiving when they finally went before a judge. “The judge asked if it was so pressing, why we’d waited so long,” Hope recalled. “Because we wanted to be nice!”

The Golden Globe awards were coming up fast. Hope and his crew tried to get specialized film distributors to testify, but they were under gag orders handed down by the studios. They were then subpoenaed, but “miraculously” no one was available when the servers came around. “It was a complete jam,” said Hope. “Then Harvey Weinstein agreed to sign an affidavit and go on the record. He was the only one that stepped forward. That turned out to be crucial.” Finally, the judge ruled in their favor. People he referred to as “predominantly L.A.based producers” began approaching Hope. “What are you doing, Ted?” Hope said they asked him. “[The studios] are going to retaliate.” So far, Hope said there’s been no retaliation. Quite the opposite, Hope said defeating the screener ban led to closer relations between specialized filmmakers and the big studios—even to the point of Valenti offering indy-filmmakers a chance to participate in future discussions. “I’ve always been told that specialized films share less than five percent of the marketplace,” Hope said. “But that activity’s been increasing—closing on 15 percent. The audience for these films has been bigger than it’s ever been.” MTW

SEEDS What if you were given the opportunity to sit down face-to-face with someone you consider your enemy? What if you had the chance to spend three weeks living with them? In this poignant documentary which is the Opening Night film the American Film Institute’s SilverDocs Festival in Washington D.C., we meet ten extraordinary teenagers who undertake that challenge. Every summer, these kids from wartorn countries gather together at the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Maine. Back home it’s impossible to believe a Palestinian can share a bunk with an Israeli; unimaginable for an Indian to speak freely with a Pakistani; inconceivable for an American to gain insight into the way an Afghan thinks and even more difficult to imagine any real sense of trust. But here, in the woods of Maine, there’s a small opportunity to break through the fear and catch a glimpse of what it might be like to live together.

JAWS UNDERGROUND

PULLING INTO SOME OF THE BIGGEST WAVES IN THE WORLD and tread water on the big days. How did you guys start producing? Have you ever been scared out there? Tronolone: Oh yeah, I’ve been in scary situations but I never think I am gonna buy it when I’m out there. It’s when I get back and am watching the video I think, “if I were in that spot, I would have definitely bought it.”

Hanging on the back of a Jet Ski in Peahi’s 80-foot surf, with video camera in hand, earned Chris Tronolone and his associate producers Shanti Berg, Dennis Early and Sebastian “Buster” Tronolone a spot in this year’s Maui Film Festival. Their film, Jaws Underground, took more than $15,000 and two years to film. The film documents local guys ripping the most humungous curls ever, and is getting both the producers and the surfers local and national attention. I recently sat down with Berg and Tronolone in their oneroom Haiku studio for a sneak peak at the local movie that’s pounding the Film Festival this year.

Berg: We’d been showing it to some of the guys around town and some of the surfers suggested we send it in. It’s our third submission so we’re really happy to finally have one that made it. I think the surfers’ excitement had a lot to do with getting it in.

Berg: The unknown legends of Maui, and some new, young kids riding the waves like the legends. Surfers like Kaleo Amadeo, Mark Anderson, Ian Walsh, Archie Kalepa and Pete Cabrina.

Tronolone: Basically, January 10, 2004, Eric Hyden, photographer and friend of ours, knocked on Shanti’s door at 5 a.m. and said, “come on, it’s gigantic.” So, we shot seven or eight hours of the biggest day of surfing that ever happened. Jan. 10 put us over the edge, but there was another day too—Nov. 26, 2002. On the 26th, Garrett McNamara got spit out of an 80-foot face and came out with his arms out—the sickest, biggest wave still that anyone’s ever seen surfed. So we’ve got shots like this sitting in our studio and we’re thinking “yah, maybe we’ll make a T.V. show.” Then Jan. 10th comes along and we’re just saying “Omigod. You put the 26th and the 10th together and it would be a crime not to make a movie.” How did you get the shots? Berg: Chris swims on the smaller days. But when it’s really big, you just stay on the Jet Ski. Even the best filmers don’t get out there

Tronolone: We’ve made a name for ourselves in kite boarding with the 11 videos we’ve made and our own video distribution, which supplements our income. Also, this year we’re shooting the entire Professional Kite Riders Association tour. But we are basically broke and spend everything we make on our equipment and projects. But by investing in ourselves and the company, we can always at least sustain the lifestyle we love, that of an independent filmmaker. And still to this day, I will spend my last dollar on buying a bunch of airplane tickets and tapes and go off to chase my dreams.

How’s the switch been? Berg: It’s been really fulfilling, actually. I didn’t have very much control in normal production, but here I have all kinds of control. Tronolone: There’s a right we reserve here and that’s complete creative control. It’s the ability to make decisions from an artistic level, not from a corporate level, not from a political level, not from a financial level.

Why do you do it? What are your future aspirations? Tronolone: The bottom line is, there’s me, Shanti and Buster and we are all basically storytellers, and our medium is video.

Tronolone: My goal’s to write, produce and direct a major motion picture. I’m working on a screenplay now. I’d really like to produce a Sci-Fi movie, a romantic comedy or a thriller.

Where do you get your ideas?

How did it come about?

When did you team up? Tronolone: Buster, my little brother and I, started Tronolone productions in 1997 and we picked up Shanti in 1999.

Tronolone: I usually get my ideas when I’m not trying to think of them and I’ll write ‘em down on the wall or something because they go just as quickly as they come. Shanti likes to see what’s out there but I am really weird. He’ll say, “Dude, you gotta see this movie,” and I’ll be like, “no, get it away from me,” because I like my ideas to be original, which is really hard.

Would you say Jaws Underground is your best movie? Tronolone: Just because how powerful Peahi is and how life threatening all the days we got on film were, I would say it’s really our most, umm... Berg: High impact. Really high impact.

Where have you traveled to make movies? What do you hope comes of the movie? Tronolone: Let’s see. I’ve been to Japan, Tahiti, France, Austria, Belgium, Figi, the Caribbean, Mexico...

Tronolone: Jaws Underground is about giving something back to the men that go out there and risk their lives. We’re not trying to make a lot of money, we’re just trying to get these guys some exposure and recognition.

Berg: It’s really exciting to go on these tours and go to all these other places just to reaffirm how beautiful Maui is and how much this place offers. When I leave, I go to some place, I look around and I think “this is cool for a day or two, but I can’t wait to go back to Maui.”

BEHIND THE SEX, DRUGS AND ROCK ‘N ROLL OF METALLICA time being in group therapy also seemed like great material for a documentary.” But then Metallica’s record label, Elektra, got a little antsy and wanted to put the film out quickly as trendy cable fodder, to coincide with the release of St. Anger. This was far ahead of the schedule Berlinger and Sinofsky had planned. “They [Elektra] wanted to chop it into multiple parts and put it on TV with commercial breaks and bleeped ‘shits’ and ‘fucks,’ redesigned as reality television,” Berlinger said in the website interview. “While we both really enjoy The Osbournes, we saw this project as a sort of antitheses to that show, and now it was about to be transformed into something meant to be consumed, spit out and forgotten.” The band members sided with the filmmakers. Instead of dealing with the record company, Metallica bought out Elektra’s investment in the film and gave back control to Berlinger and Sinofsky. The resulting rockumentary has been made an Official Selection for film festivals worldwide, including the Sundance, South By Southwest, True/False, San Francisco International, London International and Full Frame Film Festivals. Even if you’re not particularly a fan of Metallica but are just nosy enough to want to peek in on the “lifestyles of the rich and famous,” it will likely make your own dreary existence seem not so bad after all.

Ever want to be a rock star? Or just date one? Well, watch this movie about the trials and tribulations of one of hard rock’s most successful bands in history and then think again. Metallica: Some Kind of Monster is a documentary that follows the legendary heavy metal band as they struggle to overcome the “clashing egos and artistic inertia” that came from spending 20 years together making music. The film also chronicles the departure of longtime bass-guitarist Jason Newsted as well as lead singer James Hetfield’s entry into rehab for alcoholism, all while the band is preparing to make their latest album, St. Anger after a six-year hiatus. When they end up in group therapy, the cameras are still in tow. Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky—documentary filmmakers for multiple-award winning 1992’s Brother’s Keeper and 1996’s Paradise Lost—spent three years on the film. They came up with the idea after filming a VH1 piece on extremely devoted music fans, with Metallica and their audience at the forefront. The band and filmmakers then set about preparing for a potential future collaboration, allowing for the right time when Berlinger and Sinofsky’s all-access approach would be welcomed by the band, or at least, not so intrusive and jarring. The time was finally right in 2001, but not without some trepidation. “When you set out to make a cinema-verité film you never know where it is going to take you,” said Berlinger in an interview posted on the movie’s official website. “We also made sure that we had complete access to the band’s sessions with [therapist] Phil Towle, and the idea of the most successful metal band of all

just may have saved enough money. 3. Ask all your friends to sponsor you for a few dollars each, just like if you were raising money for a marathon. This is a marathon, and at the finish line is a lot of chocolate! Be focused in accomplishing your goal. 4. For creative types: do like the big nonprofits and ask wealthy people for money. In exchange you will promise to write an amazing song, paint a picture, or make a video documenting your experience at Taste of Chocolate. Share your creation with all your generous sponsors in a gala performance next week. 5. It takes money to make money. Invest a couple bucks in a nice new outfit, shine your shoes and comb your hair for once. Act like you already have the $50 you need to go to this event. Act like you really deserve to be there, without any doubt. And maybe it will come true.

Alan Sakamura Butcher, Mana Foods I used to manage the meat cutting plant Uncle Louie’s. The owner was a good butcher, he had spent 30 years in the business. I learned from the best. Mana Foods started importing organic New Zealand beef about two years ago and needed someone to cut it. I did meat fabrication there part time. The demand was so high I couldn’t keep up. The owners of Mana Foods offered me something really nice so I came here. They had done local fish and organic chicken for a while. The owner Ed had been a vegetarian but felt weak. He started eating fish and chicken, but beef is a different protein. It makes him feel better. You don’t need to eat it all the time, just in balance. The meat venture was brought up by Dan Rayburn, dairy manager at the time. I wanted to get the best meat we could find. Fortunately these guys on the Big Island are my friends. Kulana Foods is a co-operative of 40 to 50 different cattle ranchers on the Big Island. It’s certified organic beef, 100 percent grass fed. It’s never frozen, always fresh chilled. It’s on the shelf no more than three days. I never thought it would fly. It totally took off in one month. A lot of people need the protein. I think we’re the first store to sell organic beef on the islands. Working here is so nice. It’s so relaxed, you just do your job. I never thought I would work at Mana. There are different people from the really local crowd, people from all over the world working in harmony. I was born and raised here in Wailuku, and now reside in Haiku. I own my own home. It’s so hard, the average local person can’t afford property. I’ve worked two jobs all my life. My favorite dish is a nice healthy cut of rib eye steak. My favorite fish would be 100 percent wild Alaskan salmon. That’s the best surf and turf combo. And they’re the best two sellers. MTW

The Id of Punk

PHOTO:JAMES BUNOAN

Orange County’s The Stitches come to Maui Before “punk” became radio-friendly— we’re talking Green Day and Good Charlotte—it was loud and anarchic, distorted and angry, unpredictable and wild, but with a purpose. And usually, that purpose wasn’t to sell a million records or get their multi-roomed “crib” filmed on MTV. The whole loud/fast/angry, rebellious raw energy of punk rock in the early 1980s that birthed such Southern California greats as the Circle Jerks and Black Flag also gave way to more melodic deviations like Agent Orange and Social Distortion and eventually, Bad Religion. But throughout it all, punk’s raucous f#*k you’s to authority also carried over into the music industry, as bands demanded to maintain their DIY integrity and independence. For the most part, bands had a stark choice: Wither away or become the Offspring. Very few remnants of this era remain. But The Stitches are still keeping it together. This is in spite—or because of— their punk era lack of restraint. They came together in 1993 with Mike Lohrman on vocals, Johnny Witmer on guitar, Pete “Action Man” Archer on bass—he’s been known to surf in leather pants on occasion— and drummer Johnny Sleeper. They’ve had some change-ups on drums, but are currently in sync with “Skibs” Barker. Last year, The Stitches made it all the way to #23 on OC Weekly’s list of the 129 best Orange County bands ever. And they’re in good company, too. Bands like Agent Orange, The Adolescents, TSOL, Social Distortion and Jose Feliciano were all cited with them. It took 10 years, but The Stitches finally released their first album, Twelve Imaginary Inches, a couple years ago on TKO Records. It’s also been on more than a few best lists since then—usually with some variation of the comment “you really should see them live to know what they’re all about.” Their live shows are riotous, unpredictable affairs that will be the fodder of punk show legend for years to come. One typical outing occurred at a show held at a Der Wienerschnitzel [chain hot dog stand] in Southern California. Lohrman started a food fight with mustard covered chilidogs. Another time, singer Lohrman passed out in the beginning of a Stitches’ show. The band played on, of course, instrumental only, with Lohrman face down on the

Quick—where are my pineapples?! front of the stage for the rest of the set. “We played this place [the Offspring] used to play,” recalled Sleeper in an Aug. 22, 2003 OC Weekly story. “J.J.’s in Orange, and at the time, the Offspring were totally on the radio. The whole floor was covered with shattered glass and at the time I played barefoot. The owner came out because we had to stop playing and he was trying to grab my hands, and

I jumped over the drum set, was rolling around barefoot in shards of shattered glass, yelling at the guy, ‘Don’t touch me! DON’T TOUCH ME!’ And I remember thinking, ‘Yeah, the Offspring used to play here—but not like this.’” When I asked one longtime fan in California about The Stitches’ erratic stage antics, he offered this bit of advice for our

Maui audience: “Don’t forget to tell the kids to bring pineapples to the show—you know, for artillery.” Oahu punk band Generic will open for The Stitches on Sunday at Hapa’s Nightclub. Tickets are $7 and there are two shows: 6 p.m. for all ages, 9 p.m. for 21 and over. For tickets or info, call 879-9001. MTW

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS - (PG) Action/Adventure - This Jules Verne classic stars Jackie Chan—Jackie Chan!—as Passepartout, the Chinese thief and Steve Coogan as British adventurer Phileas Fogg. Considering that Chan does a lot of his trademark kicking and jumping and kicking while in the act of jumping, we’re guessing the studio strayed a bit from Verne’s original storyline. DODGEBALL (PG13) - Ben Stiller (Zoolander) is the hilarious head of a big fitness palace that threatens to overtake a small local gym. Vince Vaughn (Swingers) leads a group of social misfits to battle the big evil corporate world of narcissism in an epic game of, well, Dodgeball. THE TERMINAL - (PG13) - Drama - Steven Spielberg directs Tom Hanks as some Eastern European guy who gets stranded in an airport terminal because his country ceases to exist. It’s a lighthearted film, which is odd considering it’s based on a true story about a guy who ended up killing himself because he couldn’t take spending weeks and weeks in a sterile prison listening to the words “United Flight 167 now boarding at Gate 32.”

THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK - (PG13) Science Fiction/Adventure - For those who don’t remember—I had to look it up, so don’t feel bad—Riddick (Vin Diesel, who was actually best when he played that robot killing machine in the animated Iron Giant) was the bad-ass dude who could see in the dark in that film Pitch Black that came out a few years ago. Anyway, now he’s caught in some big 26th Century intergalactic war (small intergalactic wars never rate movies, it seems) and lots of stuff gets blown up. DAY AFTER TOMORROW - (PG13) - Action So the scientists are telling the politicians, “We’re killing the planet!” and the politicians are like, “Yeah, whatever” and then the Ice Age happens, like, the next day and the scientists are like, “I told you so!” and then hilarity ensues. Hey, anything with a 200-foot tidal wave is worth seeing! Stars Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal. GARFIELD - (PG) - Comedy - Movie version of the comic strip that follows the adventures of a sleepy, orange, fat cat that eats a lot of lasagna and cracks wise (of course) to his owner Jon, who I think can’t really hear him because cats don’t really talk so well. Anyway, they go see beautiful (of course) veterinarian Liz Wilson and get a new friend—an utterly mindless yet thor-

HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN - (PG) - Action/Adventure - Third in the Harry Potter dynasty of children’s books, this storyline evolves around Harry’s inability to tame the beast within him, as he goes on the run, not realizing that he is also being chased by a renegade wizard played by sexy master villain Gary Oldman (hello? Bram Stoker’s Dracula?). MEAN GIRLS - (PG13) - Comedy - A dark comedy starring America’s hot new multimillionaire under 20, Lindsay Lohan, and written by sardonic SNL maven Tina Fey, that examines the cruel games popular girls play in high school to achieve and maintain their superficial status. True, unfortunately these games sometimes carry over into adulthood but it certainly makes those high school reunions much more interesting. SHREK 2 - (PG) - Animation - This green ogre (Mike Meyers) marries this princess (Cameron Diaz) and live in swamp with their donkey friend (Eddie Murphy). The princess’ parents happen to be the King (John Cleese) and Queen (Julie Andrews) of Far Far Away and they’re pissed so the dad plots to have the ogre, Shrek, killed by Puss ‘n Boots (Antonio Banderas) so that the princess can be freed up to marry the Fairy Godmother’s son Prince Charming (Rupert Everett), who we all know doesn’t exist anyway so what is she thinking?! SOUL PLANE - (R) - Comedy - Snoop Dogg and Method Man star in this comedy that revolves around

the first all-black airline, NWA, replete with sexy stewardesses (not “flight attendants!”), funky music (no Celine Dion!) and an on board dance club (yeah, now we’re talking!), along with the guffaws that occur when a white family (featuring Tom Arnold) is erroneously booked on their first flight. THE STEPFORD WIVES - (PG13) - Comedy - A remake of the 1975 suspense classic about a creepy upper-class suburb—actually, aren’t all suburbs kinda creepy?—where all the wives are seemingly “perfect,” but are actually just the submissive robots their creepy husbands have replaced their real wives with. All-star cast features Nicole Kidman, Mathew Broderick, Faith Hill, Chritopher Walken and Bette Midler. TROY -- (R) -- Epic Adventure - Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom put on dresses and act out that classic war epic about the war between Greek city states and Troy. They’ve got the delicious Diane Kruger playing Helen, the original blonde bombshell whose face supposedly launched a thousand ships, but the movie’s main thrust is on Pitt’s golden locks and iron biceps. VAN HELSING - (PG13) - Thriller/Suspense - In what originally looked like a remake of Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein but actually isn’t, “monster hunter” Dr. Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) tramps around 19th Century Eastern Europe battling vampire bimbos, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolf Man and quite possibly the Invisible Man, Jekyll and Hide and Ming the Merciless.

Come Experience The Shops & Restaurants Van Halen on Oahu? Friday, 7 p.m. at the Pipeline Café, Oahu No, not really. But apparently, the Atomic Punks is the closest you’re gonna get to any VH reunion with ol’ Diamond Dave. They are a certified, Van Halen—circa David Lee Roth—tribute band. And the opening act is, get this, Buddhist Priest! The best reason to fly inter-island this weekend, in my book. For tickets (that you will then promptly give to me), call 1-877-750-4400.

The 2004 Na Kamehameha Commemorative Pa’u Parade & Ho’olaulea is a much-loved tradition in Lahaina, where everyone gathers annually along Front Street to honor the Hawaiian monarch, Kamehameha the Great, who united the islands under one kingdom in 1810. The main attraction of the cultural commemoration is the Royal Court Float—a 100-year old tradition with Na Koa warriors protecting the Mo’i Kane throughout the procession and colorful teams of pa’u riders, with their flowing wraps of satin atop steeds (that’s horses in fancy parade-talk) draped in exotic floral leis.

Freedom Seekers Sunday, 10 a.m. to noon, in front of the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center in Kahului Celebrate Fathers Day the old fashioned way—by standing on the sidewalk and exercising your constitutional right to raise hell! Calling themselves the Freedom Seekers of Hawaii, a bunch of locals are going to wave signs along Ka’ahumanu Ave. to protest the selling of mostly agricultural lands to mainland developers for conversion to high-end resort hotels. It’s funny how more and more people aren’t going for the now-traditional practice of giving big-time developers who contribute thousands of dollars to elected officials who in turn approve their zoning change requests and plans to develop all the land they want, irrespective of who owned that land in the past or who might be buried just beneath it. But hey—times change. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

The 12th annual Marty Dread birthday bash will feature Maui’s favorite reggae ambassador along with Brazilian reggae artist Andre Derizans, the Kryptones and Douglas Arsinio Bautista, aka “Humble Soul” whose style is “as unassuming as his name,” said The Beats’ Chuck Foster. “Don’t expect James Brown when he hits the stage. There’s a strength that belies the softness (think Kaya-era Bob Marley) and a clear force to his musical presence.” Even the legendary Don Carlos said, “Much respect to the man they call Humble Soul.” And of course, there will the surprise special guests and you have no way of knowing WHO will show up unless YOU do—you know, show up, that is.

PUREVOLUME

BY JOJOBOY

HEADLEY GRANGE “HURT FIRE” EP “HURT FIRE” EP Headley Grange is a collaboration between hip hop emcee/producer the Mole and indie rocker Body Holiday, both stationed on Maui and both derangers of their respective genres. Hurt Fire, an EP that previews their upcoming album, is a fantastic collision of sound; it’s what you get when a quirk-loving guitarist and a futuristic beat-maker look at the world through the same kaleidoscope. Though it’s natural to compare Headley Grange to Beck and other musicians mixing hip hop into their rock songs, the sounds on Hurt Fire are clearly the spontaneous result of the artists’ chemistry rather than a nod to modern influences. The songs are great: Opening with a sound collage that advertises the joys of “owning your very own Headley Grange,” the EP segues into its title track, where Body Holiday becomes a wind-up rocker-toy in a toy factory, and the Mole plays Gepetto as he fine-tunes with piano-tinkering and clunky beats. Delivered in two parts, “Red Zone” begins with a slow chug and harmonica-like drone that carries on throughout part one; coupled with references to mountains and the pair’s craggy vocals, it sounds like the work song of two rusty gnomes as they return from the mines. The pace is picked up in part two of “Red Zone” but still maintains its feel and is also the only rap number of the set—and Body Holiday holds his own with the Mole’s years of demonstrated rhyme skills. Standing out among the oddballs, “The Reunion” is, by contrast, a lament that verges on pretty, and “Roni” is hip hop’s greatest (and possibly only) resurrection of Vanilla Ice in the new millennium. “Country Fried Hurt Fire” rounds out the set, recasting the title track as a companion to the Beverly Hillbillies theme. One of the few tracks from the EP that won’t be on the upcoming album (Rock & Roll For The Booming System), it alone is worth the price of admission. What’s most surprising about Hurt Fire is that for all of its eclectic sounds and the obvious fun involved in its making, it manages to convey a pretty serious sense of isolation. While this is most evident in “The Reunion” and the dirgey “Enough,” even the more upbeat numbers seem to have isolation in their undercurrent. This makes Hurt Fire more than just cool new music, but also music you can feel. Recorded in just two weeks, Headley Grange’s Hurt Fire is an experiment with super results, musically daring without calculation, and a must-have for folks who value freshness in their listening experience. —Motion Recordings.

ARIES: You’ve got quite a bit to talk about these days. It’s as if your neighborhood is a hotbed of gossip and unnecessary information. Hang out with your brothers and sisters and best friends. The new moon teaches you poetry. TAURUS: It’s easy getting lost in the supermarket this time of year. Define the difference between needs and wishes. The new moon tests you on the things you value. The world of local travel, social appearances and basic information opens up to you. GEMINI: End your season with the confidence that you’re headed in the right direction. Be the kind of trendsetter that you can respect. The new moon in Gemini signifies a personal rebirth. Act now while you’ve got the courage. CANCER: Sunday afternoon the sun moves into Cancer. It’s a great day for celebrating fathers. Find something good about your Dad or your grandfather and praise them for it. The new moon enhances your psychic connections. LEO: First the good news—the new moon improves your social standing and allows the wind to blow through your mane. The second good news is that the moon will be in Leo Sunday through Tuesday. The not so good news is karma beyond your control is coming Sunday as well. VIRGO: A summer of rich pleasure is about to commence. Be as nice to yourself as you can stand. After Sunday you’ll need to stop playing the loner. It’s time to flex your social wings. Learn to flirt. The new moon uses your talents and skills. LIBRA: Show off your intelligence. Stop playing dumb just to get people to like you. Adopt a more honest way of living. Approach life with gusto. Expect a miracle. Believe in the experience. The new moon makes you smarter. SCORPIO: When you recover from a wipeout, you have sand in your butt and saltwater in your nostrils. Still, this is better than tumbling in a crumbling wave fighting to hold your breath. Take a breather and experience life. The new moon is like a final wave. SAGITTARIUS: You’ve been in the eye of the hurricane. All is calm before the storm. Relationships begin to intensify over the weekend. The new moon affirms your need to be diplomatic and fair. Reality is about to get hard and fast. CAPRICORN: You’re ready for some good healing. You’ve been helping others in spite of your own wounds. Father’s Day will get you thinking about the times your dad bailed you out of trouble. The new moon would like you to perform a service for charity. AQUARIUS: What you thought you believed might have to be re-investigated. Your sense of artistic adventure remains strong. Your responsibilities at work are about to increase. The new moon validates your heart’s desires. Pay attention to your health. PISCES: You’re ready to “fly the coop.” The need to spread your wings and express yourself is strong. The new moon helps you deal with old parental authority issues. A more playful and joyful period is about to blossom. HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Joe Piscopo 6/17/51, Paul Mc Cartney 6/18/42, Ray Davies 6/21/41, Berke Breathed 6/21/57 kozmickev@sunset.net

She’s all up in your jock

Spirit

Last Thursday Jen and I hit the Pepper show at Hapa’s in Kihei. We met the boys in the band, who were all very nice and intent on getting “fucked up” for their next set, which we took to mean “naturally hyped by the wholesome fervor of their music.” Yesod, the drummer, proudly gave me his band’s “shaka” foam hand schwag as I chatted it up with sometime Offspring and Snoop Dogg keyboardist Ronnie King, who was from my hometown so I quickly immersed myself in his music biz gossip. Our friends were also full of interesting commentary. One guy told us how his sister had told him, “If you didn’t have a dick, you wouldn’t be worth a fuck,” while yet another friend enlightened us with a delightful new term—“budoochi”—which she explained is the scent that emanates from the collective regions of the culus, cunnus and sopionis. “Hmm, that doesn’t sound so appetitable,” said Jen. The club was so packed we didn’t really have a chance to move around, so we hung out on the side of the stage, watching the row of girls in front who were visibly vying for the chance to lick the sweat off guitarist Kaleo. Watching them reminded me of my first schoolgirl crush on a musician. It turned out to be the prelim to a long line of rock star infatuations. The one who started it all was, of course, David Lee Roth. I was eight years old and hanging on to the fringed jacket of my mother, while he, seemingly seven feet tall and glowering, loomed in the doorway to a backstage room filled with smoke and hair and naked women. As he carried on a conversation with my mom, who was doing Van Halen’s bookkeeping at the time, I was fascinated and frightened by his magnetosphere, pulling all into what I imagine now was the sexual maelstrom of the dark room behind him. He was never very pretty—proven by the sad state of affairs he’s come to be some 20-odd years later—and not very “nice,” either. But still, for some reason, he initiated my disturbing attraction to cocky, vain, obnoxiously charismatic musicians who are not so much immature and flaky as they are just completely in denial about all things time-related. I did the whole “dating only musicians” thing throughout high school but my first real boyfriend was a DJ. Still into the music thing, yet somehow they seemed more serious, more focused and actually had jobs, um, DJing. But in the end, they turned out to be just as selfobsessed, egotistical and narcissistic as the guys in bands and were definitely greedier when it came time to split our record collection during the inevitable breakup. I’m over musicians now, except for the one or two who dedicate songs to me—thank you, Marty and Mr. Trevor Jones! They can stay. But I’m definitely over the DJs. Definitely. Unless, of course, somebody comes up with a copy of Lightnin Hopkins’ 1952 “Everything Happens to Me” red vinyl 45 or Robert Johnson’s 1937 Vocalion recording of “I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom” on a 78. Then I might think about it.

The night after the Pepper show Jen and I weren’t quite sure what we were in the mood to do so we discussed our options over a couple of drinks at—you guessed it— the Sly Mongoose. We were torn. Do we do the beach bonfire thing and sing folksy Pantera covers while strumming the guitar naked? No, too much sand. What about checking out Stepford Wives and that reggae band from the mainland, Little Big Man, at the SandBar in Paia? Naw, too far a ride on our Schwinn cruisers. It was at this critical moment that Electric Steve, looking somewhat lopsided, ambled up to my roommate on his way out of the bar. “You are one of the beautiful women of this town,” he said. “You say that with such a slur,” said Jen. We finally opted for a picnic dinner of Kentucky Fried Chicken on the seawall directly across from the Hard Rock Café in Lahaina, where surely we could watch a show of our own as all the reggae die-hards gathered to see the legendary Don Carlos. And later, as we sat on the wall eating our crispy fowl, this guy sitting next to us asked Jen if she was from New Jersey. “If I was from New Jersey,” she said, “I would never admit it.” “But Bruce Springsteen is from Jersey!” he said. “My point exactly.” MTW
