BY TOM TOMORROW

shoved a bill through the 2005 Congress, gifting the credit card companies by screwing the consumer. George Bush, no doubt, took enormous delight in inking this class war declaration.â&#x20AC;? How is a Ph.D.-educated, San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;living editor part of the lower class? How many doctorates do you need to be middle class? If simply walking away from his debt was easier, perhaps he could declare every year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disturbing to know he actually qualiďŹ es for bankruptcy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately, we decided to cut costs, move out of the city and do the conventional work thing. But even with steady work, the bills kept mounting.â&#x20AC;? Tragic. Forced into the suburbs to live with the unenlightened folks of Marin or Burlingame. Deprived of ďŹ ve-star restaurants on every street corner, who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider suicide? And bills kept mounting because . . . ? You are doing a great disservice printing this rubbish. Trent Miller, Santa Clara

High IQ Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing in response to Patricia Gasantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ignorant rant about the IQ of marijuana users (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joint Responsibility,â&#x20AC;? Letters, March 4). I am a professional with a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree. I am a marijuana smoker. My smoke cypher includes lawyers and Ph.D.s. We are all over 30. We usually get together for an organic/ vegetarian dinner with good wine and good cannabis. We discuss the economy, politics, family, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nishing or defending a dissertation,

and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studying for the bar. I have found that marijuana smokers, whether for medical reasons or pleasure, are more intelligent and responsible than users of other substances. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ignorant people like Ms. Gasant who stereotype smokers from Hollywood movies and bad anti-drug campaigns. Maybe Ms. Gasant should join our cypher and become educated. Who knows, maybe sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a contact high IQ. Nicole, San Jose

Â&#x2DC;

gby;!519/3:9/1713

Your lazy, one sided editorial about Christian rock pioneer Larry Norman (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Still Questing,â&#x20AC;? Film Lead, March 4) and your conclusions based on speculous [sic] statements from angry ďŹ lmmaker DiSabbatino [sic; actually, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Di Sabatino] were pure trash! Almost everyone in Christian music who has been following this feud knows the real motive for this movie was not honestyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it was made after DiSabbatino used Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music and credited Larry as musical director for

Frisbee without permission, and Larry rightfully demanded that his music be pulled from the project. This movie is nothing more than a petty revenge planned to slant and twist and fabricate damaging stories against a good man of God. Who wrote the article? DiSabbatino himself???? Shame on youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;write a retraction! Keith Schwartz, St. Paul, Minn.

Diehard Fan As an old-time diehard Giants fan I grew accustomed to making fun of the way the laid-back, lackadaisical Dodger fans would begin pouring out of Chavez Ravine in the top of the seventh. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;San Jose Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s?â&#x20AC;? Mashup!, March 19.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;L.A. Wimps,â&#x20AC;? weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d mutter as we recalled the last frigid Candlestick twi-night doubleheader weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d survived by stuffing discarded wadded up newspapers under our clothing to keep from freezing to death. As a longtime San Jose resident, knowing the nature of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s typical San Josean, it would be pretty hard to stomach my hometownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humiliation as NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cameras panned around the yawning, latte sipping, bluetooth clad, distracted bunch of yuppies in our sparsely ďŹ lled, multimillion dollar, whoever-the-most-expensivearchitect-in-the-world-isâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;designed stadium. Separation of Church and State? Maybe. Separation of Sports and State? DeďŹ nitely. No more using tax dollars to subsidize millionaires. Not AIG executives. Not sports franchise owners. John Galt, San Jose

J!Tbxzpv Queen of SelďŹ sh Parkers

A Hoot I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read Metro on a regular basis but this article (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kings of Karaoke,â&#x20AC;? Cover Story, March 4) was a hoot. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll deďŹ nitely be back on a more regular basis. Peter Polito, Clayton, Calif.

Decline and Fall This article (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bankruptcy Chic,â&#x20AC;? Cover, March 11) truly explains our societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plastic camp

I saw you Ms. Black Jetta, Queen of SelďŹ sh Parkers. Two weeks ago when you parked nearly 4 feet from the curb, you took up two parking spots. What gives? Did your mama not teach you how to share? Maybe you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how crowded the lot gets after a certain hour, but let me tell you, it does. You may come in early and have the pick of the litter but at least have the decency to only take one space. Think back a few weeks ago. I put a note on your windshieldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a polite one I thought. It read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your parking job is very inconsiderate.â&#x20AC;? Apparently, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read or you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. Maybe you would get the hint if I etched it on your windshield, but I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. My mama taught me better than that.

HE LEGENDARY Herb Caen invented what was once called three-dot, or dot-dotdot, journalism; that is, using the ellipsis to separate sections of his commentary. In my case, I’ll call it splat-splat-splat journalism, which suits this week’s musings—in honor of some local heroes. As you read this, the world stage premiere of The Kite Runner will already be taking place at San Jose Rep (previews March 25–26, opening March 27). Adapted by SJSU professor Matthew Spangler, directed by David Ira Goldstein and based on the international bestseller by San Jose’s Khaled Hosseini, the show runs until April 19. Crudely simplified, the story concerns two boys, Amir and Hassan, who grow up in the same household in Afghanistan but are immersed in different slices of the social and ethnic spectrum. Amir is the son of a rich businessman and Hassan’s dad is the servant of Amir’s dad. When the Soviets invade, Amir and his father escape and later arrive in Fremont, where they deal with assimilation issues in what becomes a thriving Afghan community in that city. Amir then eventually returns to the homeland to make amends for failing to stick by his friend Hassan in times of trouble. The novel includes vivid episodic passages immortalizing the Berryessa Flea Market, where the Afghan immigrant community has established its own little enclave, drinking tea and discussing politics and local gossip. Here is where Amir meets his future wife, Soraya, and I can’t think of any more wholesome place in San Jose for that scene to occur, especially since the entire future of the flea market is still up in the air. In a now famous passage, Amir ponders the situation one evening after he gets home: “Lying awake in bed that night, I thought of Soraya Taheri’s sickle-shaped birthmark, her gently hooked nose, and the way her luminous eyes had fleetingly held mine. My heart stuttered at the thought of her. Soraya Taheri. My Swap Meet Princess.” splat splat splat Hosseini is not the only local hero currently putting San Jose on the map, however. Frank Shamrock, the Ultimate Fighting and mixed-martial-arts legend, is back in the news again, as he recently took over the top floor of the San Jose Athletic Club, the elite locale where executives and old-guard movers and shakers go to work out and swap stock tips in the sauna. Originally the Scottish Rite Temple dating back to 1924, the building is a massive three-story neoclassical structure with Egyptian ornamentation. The timing was perfect. Shamrock’s previous location on Winfield Boulevard was getting too small for the amount of classes he had, Here, Amir meets his and the club finally decided to open the future wife, and I can’t top level of the building after using it think of any more primarily for storage. Everything just wholesome place in San fell into place. Shamrock now plans to use the Scottish Rite building for more Jose for that scene, as the classes as well as a headquarters from future of the flea market which to franchise the business out to is still up in the air other locales. If you climb the seemingly ancient stone steps past the red Frank Shamrock welcome mat, you arrive at the top level of the building. One can’t help but wonder what secret Masonic rituals took place in that very room 80 years ago. From that same room, you can even sneak out onto the roof through a side door. Shamrock was the dude who originally brought mixed martial arts to San Jose in 1997. However, exactly one year ago, he lost the middleweight belt to another local, Cung Le, in a heated battle at HP Pavilion. Before that match, Shamrock touted that the arena belonged to him, so I suggested the city rename it Shamrock Arena. When he lost, a few Cung Le fans emailed and told me, in so many words, to go take a hike. splat splat splat So consider it the tale of two local heroes. In one corner, we have a SJSU professor adapting the Berryessa Flea Market for the stage at the San Jose Rep. In the other, we have the adaptive reuse of San Jose’s most ornate building, the Scottish Rite Temple, for mixed martial arts and boxing lessons. Go San Jose. Splat me at SiliconAlleys@metronews.com

best of the local web A roundup of news, commentary and opinion from around the valley. Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect Metro’s editorial views.

No One’s Getting Anything Done at Work I’ve only watched a couple minutes of March Madness so far, and I haven’t watched a second on my laptop. But apparently I’m in the minority: CBS, which is streaming the entire college basketball tournament for free on the web, says traffic to its video player is up 56 percent compared to last year. CBS says it logged more than 2.7 million uniques to the player in the first day of tournament; last year it logged 1.75 million during the same period. And it says it has streamed 2.8 million hours of live video and audio so far, up 65 percent from last year. Bonus stat for the good people of Comcast (CMCSA), who are sponsoring the player’s “Boss Button”—users have clicked on the defraud-your-employer tool 1.5 million times. Last year’s figure was 2.5 million for the entire tournament. But no stats from CBS on the number of people who have used Microsoft’s (MSFT) Silverlight software to watch the games on HD. Most important stat for CBS and its advertisers: Television viewing, which is still much more important than any web metric, was up 9 percent for the day. Another vote in favor of the “web video is additive, not cannibalizing” argument. —PETER KAFKA, MEDIAMEMO.ALLTHINGSD.COM

Valleywag reported in January that the May-December couple—he’s 64, she’s 28—had switched the location of their wedding from Hinze’s paparazzi-friendly Sydney to the more remote Necker Island. Now PEHub, a venture-capital blog, confirms that the couple are wedding on Necker. —OWEN THOMAS, VALLEYWAG.GAWKER.COM Countdown to strychnine-vegemite sandwich: 10—9—8. —Smokey Orleans Now I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger. —Ryan Pierce I’ll get shot down for this, but they don’t look that bad together. He looks decidedly noncreepy, and she looks convincingly content. —No Day Like Friday

Online Apps Help You Get The Most Out of March Madness March Madness is in full swing as the nation’s best college hoops teams face off in this year’s NCAA Basketball tournament, and there is no shortage of online applications looking to help you keep tabs on your favorite teams. CBS has built an iPhone application that allows users to stream live video of any NCAA basketball BEATS WORKING March Madness game, provided they are on on your desktop. a WiFi network (you can only listen to an audio feed if you are on 3G or Edge). The requirement for WiFi obviously isn’t ideal and you’ll still have to watch commercials, but for $5 the application is certainly worth it if you’re an avid basketball fan. If you’re on a PC, you can also stream

games free of charge from the official NCAA site. Another option for getting basketball news delivered to your phone is Buzzwire, which specializes in mobile content. By visiting m.buzzwire.com from your mobile phone and selecting ‘March Madness,’ users can view a list of relevant news articles pulled from a variety of sources, including ESPN, CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated. If you’re not content to just follow the news and want to make sure your friends know as well, a service called Final Four 09 will automatically tweet scores and news updates from your Twitter account (after you enter your credentials). The system is fairly easy to use—just check off the teams you’d like to broadcast about. But don’t check off too many teams or your followers are likely to get sick of your constant tweeting. As an incentive to help the app go viral, you can earn points for having your Twitter followers join the service (at the end of the tournament the user with the most points wins a Flip Mino HD camcorder). —JASON KINCAID, TECHCRUNCH.COM

The New News Thing Traditional news sources still can’t navigate Web 2.0 By Rory O’Connor

G

OOGLE CEO Eric Schmidt believes that the Internet is a “cesspool” of false information and that filters are needed to help sort through the muck and mire. Most observers agree that some sort of credibility/trust delivery filter for news and information is now necessary—how else can we be sure that the news we see and hear is actually true?—but they disagree as to what the best filter may be. Predictably, corporate executives like Schmidt offer their corporate “brands” as the answer. “Brands are the solution, not the problem,” Schmidt told a collection of top

American magazine editors last fall. “Brands are how you sort out the cesspool.” Many executives in traditional media companies share Schmidt’s belief in brand power. Richard Stengel, executive editor of Time magazine, is among them. At the Time Warner “Politics 2008— Media Summit” in October, Stengel remarked, “I actually think that in this blizzardlike universe of news usage, brands are actually more important and rising above the chaos because people don’t have places they can trust and rely on.” Paul Slavin, senior vice president of digital media at ABC News, is

in accord. “Brands are the answer to the credibility questions,” Slavin says. “ABC News is known worldwide, and most people feel we are balanced and fair, that we offer a vetted, careful environment for news and information.” He believes that brands are already being used as a necessary filter to combat the “too much information” problem, and that our reliance on them will grow over time. “Brand power will only increase as noise level increases,” Slavin explains. “It will all come back to tried and true brands. The fundamental understanding of and protection of our brand truly is our future.”

[11]

Slavin, who has coordinated ABC News’ exploration of and collaboration with the emerging media, said in a 2008 interview that ABC “started looking for relationships with social networks a year and a half ago. We looked at MySpace first, then Facebook.” The motive, he says, was simple: “We wanted to tap into their younger demo and expose them to our content.” In the end, ABC decided to work with Facebook. “Facebook friends function as personal aggregators, and that can be very powerful,” Slavin believes. “We needed to figure out how to tap into that.” In November 2007, ABC entered into a formal partnership with Facebook, the first of its kind with a traditional media outlet. The agreement enabled Facebook users to follow ABC reporters electronically, view reports and video and participate in polls and debates. The companies also announced that they would collaborate to sponsor a presidential debate in New Hampshire on Jan. 5, 2008. Facebook users around the world could connect and instantly discuss the debate as it occurred live on ABC. The ABC Facebook page received a lot of traffic “when actively promoted by Facebook,” says Slavin. “We had very good cooperation and coordination initially, and it resulted in 1.5 million downloads.” Slavin recalls. Later, the social network changed direction, however, and decided it didn’t want “a strong relationship with just one media group like ABC. We had talked about more collaboration in the general election,” Slavin says. “Our goal was to expand our audience to include people not coming to us for news already. The Facebook relationship can be very powerful if and when Facebook wants to do it and pushes it.”

“If you’re ABC News, your content can spread virally through all these friend networks,” Steve Outing, an interactive media columnist for Editor & Publisher magazine, explained to The New York Times. Slavin says, “In terms of the election, it gave us another way to communicate and to generate interest and questions for town halls. Sure, we were looking for ways to connect with their audience of young people. We had already looked at YouTube—then they did a debate with CNN and got very hot.” Slavin says that ABC News would “love to work with Facebook more,” and that he is “looking to re-engage and expand the relationship.” He still finds YouTube interesting, but “is not sure what we would get out of the relationship, since there is no money to be made—maybe marketing?” In conclusion, he notes, “Everybody is grappling with this now. This is the most interesting time I’ve ever experienced in news business. There’s such an explosion of new technology that my main problem is that there are simply not enough hours in the day to deal with it all. Everyone is talking to everyone else, and we’re all trying to figure this out.”

Conveyor Belt Mark Lukasiewicz is another top network news executive who is grappling with the related issues of legacy media, emerging media and trust. Lukasiewicz, vice president for digital media at NBC News, takes issue with some of what Schmidt and Slavin say. “The Internet is a conveyor belt for information, not a repository of it,” Lukasiewicz begins. “You could call the telephone system a cesspool of misinformation as well! Let’s not blame the messenger. The net is no more of a cesspool than life in general. “The question is: What tools do people have to determine what is true?’” Lukasiewicz adds. “In previous times, the medium itself conveyed some of that trust relationship. But now, since so much information comes through this new device of the

Internet, it’s become a lot harder to make those distinctions. Branding is part of what’s necessary,” he believes. “But the big challenge for mainstream media like us is that people today are less trusting of news brands—the war in Iraq had a great deal to do with that—and now this new ability of people to find and share information on their own feeds into that.” Lukasiewicz says that other, fundamental changes are also shaking the firmament of the legacy media. “After all, what conveys authority?” he asks. “That is what is changing. ... Today, for us in the mainstream media, being a singular provider—the one brand, offering everything it and only it produces—is actually a negative. People want to see a multiplicity of sources; they want you to be comprehensive. So if we link out, and offer content other than our own—even that of our competitors—it still enhances our own brand in the eyes of the consumer.” Lukasiewicz adds, “I know there is more than one vision and more than one view point. Multiple view points are what consumers want. So you build a trusted brand by sharing others’ content. It sounds a bit paradoxical, but ... it works, even though in traditional media terms, linking to the competition once would have been seen as self-destructive.” Lukasiewicz thinks that some sort of hybrid social/brand filter may be the answer. “The brand that increasingly matters is the one called ‘my friend,’” he says. “People don’t come to Facebook for news content, but they get it there. So yes, NBC News wants to be your trusted friend. And I do that by being in all the places where you are—cell phone, online, in the back of a taxicab, on a screen in an airliner, on Facebook, you name it— when I do what I do. I want to be there for you, where and when you want it. “All this is still rapidly evolving,” Lukasiewicz concludes. “For credible coverage of major events, for example, people still turn to trusted news brands. But in the future, I really believe that if you can create a cross-platform home for your news delivery, you will also succeed in creating a trusted brand.” M

Pigskin Option DESPITE ALL the talk the NFL creates in the off-season, football fans still have a long wait even for preseason games to start. And this year, the wait is even longer considering that the Arena League SaberCats have been put on hold. Football fans, however, don’t need to settle for T.O. gossip or even March Madness—a cure is on the way. The answer lies in the Northern California Football League. Stemming from four independent teams in 1996, the league has undergone a significant evolution. Teams have sprouted all over Northern California, from Salinas to Santa Rosa, creating a league with up to 24 teams between 2002 and 2005. The 2009 league is 16 teams strong, and the excitement is still there. Sure these teams don’t have giant stadiums to play in; most use high school fields and some are currently fieldless. But that doesn’t mean teams and fans will be traveling long distances to catch a game of flag or two-hand touch football—this is the real deal. The league is currently in its second week of the new season, so I decided to catch the Pacifica Islanders vs. Central Coast Barnstormers game in Pacifica last Saturday, and it did not disappoint. The first half was dominated by the guys from Gilroy and plagued by more turnovers than a bakery. But an interception by Islander Scott Burke gave the team the momentum it needed to carry through to a 50-28 win over the Barnstormers.

Sneaker Attack THIS SPRING, sneakers are great for those breezy, cool casual days when a brisk walk beckons. Sneakers may not have the cachet of sky-scraping stiletto heels, but they are a lot more comfortable and still stylish. They can be easily paired with jeans or a pencil skirt. It is possible to make a statement with the more flamboyant and decorated shoes, like the ones from tattoo artist :9=6G9N, which come in jewel tones or muted colors decorated with loud, tattoo-inspired graphics. ?J>8N8DJIJG:also offers some fun sneakers in many different colors and decorated with sequins or typography that bring visual interest to any outfit. Of course, the classics like 8DCK:GH:and K6CHalways work. They come in a plethora of primary colors. Everyone should have at least one go-to pair in their closet, or maybe seven—one color for each day of the week. Colleen Watson

Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant in San Jose serves Peruvian soul food like tacu-tacu and chicha morada By Stett Holbrook

T

IME AND AGAIN, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reminded that the most delicious, satisfying foods come from humble ingredients expertly and lovingly prepared. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a slow-cooked lamb shank or a simmering pot of beans over caviar or ďŹ let mignon any day. Peasant cooking, slow cooking, rustic cookingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whatever you want to call itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for me thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real soul of cooking, because it relies on the skill of the cook to transform cheap, everyday ingredients into something greater. The list of these dishes is as long as they are delicious: cassoulet (baked beans with salt-preserved duck and sausage), pozole (hominy stew made with pork neck bones), pork belly and oxtail stew. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a new dish to add to the list: tacu-tacu. Tacu-tacu is a staple of Peruvian food. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fat, fried pancake made from smashed rice and beans, but it tastes like so much more. Originally, tacu-tacu was made with leftover rice and beans, an economical dish from a waste-averse culinary tradition. One of the best versions Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had is at Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, a Peruvian restaurant in San Jose. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing to me that a mass of smashed rice and beans can be coaxed into a plate of food thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so delicious.

At Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the starchy, beany blob ($13.95) is enlivened with onions, garlic, oregano and other spices. The outside of the cake is crusted over slightly so it has a slight crunch, but inside itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moist and wonderfully savory. The dish is topped with a thin, pan-fried steak, and the juices commingle with the tacu-tacu for added deliciousness. But the steak is almost incidental. The huge portion of tacu-tacu is more than enough. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also great is the red onionâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;cilantro-citrus salad served alongside. The bright ďŹ&#x201A;avors are a great paired with the earthy heartiness of the tacu-tacu. Along with tacu-tacu, ceviche (sometimes spelled â&#x20AC;&#x153;cebicheâ&#x20AC;?) is another classic Peruvian dish. Given its long coastline, seafood plays a large roll in Peruvian cuisine and at Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as well. What I like about Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceviche de pescado ($13.50 ) is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not overly marinated in lime juice. Often the lime juice dominates the taste of the ďŹ sh, but at Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the light touch preserves the ďŹ&#x201A;avor and texture of the ďŹ sh, which in this case is very fresh mahi-mahi. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a bit pink inside and opaque at the edges. If you want a real taste of Peru, go for the anticuchos ($8.95), skewered and grilled veal heart. The heart is just a big muscle and

is particularly good when grilled and seasoned with a little salt and lemon juice. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be scared. If you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it was baby cow heart youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think was just ďŹ nely textured, tender beef. Seafood dishes are good at Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Cau-cau de mariscos ($13.95, what is it with Peruvian food and repeated words?) is a ďŹ lling dish of ginger- and turmericseasoned rice scrambled with mussels, clams, squid and ďŹ sh. Arroz con mariscos ($15.95) is similar but without the aromatic, yellow-stained rice. Instead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seasoned with a panca sauce made from red chiles. I also liked the chupe de camarones ($13.95), a rich shrimp chowder. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the delicious chicha morada, a Peruvian punch made with purple corn, pineapple and apple juice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boldly seasoned with cinnamon. A small glass goes for $2.50. A large is $4.95 and is big enough to replenish a depleted aquifer. Not everything shines. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the papas a la huancaina ($6.95) are homey comfort for Peruvian expats, but for me it was a plate of boiled potato slices with a nacho cheese sauce. The same goes for the causa rellena de pollo ($8.95). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another Peruvian standby, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just mashed potatoes ďŹ lled with

shredded boiled chicken and peas. It was a special on one of my visits, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not worth ordering unless you grew up eating it. Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is owned by Freddie and Terry Pereira, and the place has the personal touch of a family business. Freddie is from Peru, and he learned to cook from his mother, Isabella. His family also owns Peruvian restaurants in Miami. In spite of its minimall location, the dining room reveals several personal touches including the colorful walls and display case of Peruvian art and ďŹ gurines. But on both my visits, the restaurant was oppressively hot and stuffy. Although the TV in the middle of the restaurant is often tuned to musicians playing Latin music, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like watching TV when I go out to eat. I like to do my TV watching at home. For sweets, Freddieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister makes the alfajores ($3), a trio of delicate caramel-ďŹ lled cookies. Lucuma ice cream ($3.50) is a Peruvian classic. Lacuma is an orange-ďŹ&#x201A;eshed Peruvian fruit with a pit like an avocado. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a rich, caramel-like ďŹ&#x201A;avor, but I had trouble detecting it in the ice cream. Still, for hearty, generous food, I developed a sweet spot for Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

EXT WEEKEND is E>CDIE6G69>H:, two days of pinot pleasure hosted by the H6CI68GJOBDJCI6>CH L>C:<GDL:GH6HHD8>6I>DC. The event is a showcase for local pinot noir, and this year it will offer an opportunity to explore the regional variations of the sprawling Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. For the first time, the dozen wineries participating in the event will be organized by six subregions. The Santa Cruz Mountains fall into the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation, a federally recognized designation that covers a huge area from Woodside to Watsonville. The area also includes the tiny Ben Lomond Mountain appellation. But now organizers with the winegrowers association have offered up five additional subregions in an effort to identify and celebrate the geologic, climatic and other variations of Santa Cruz Mountains pinot noir. The subregions are “Skyline,” the northern end of the appellation in the Woodside area along Highway 35; “Saratoga/ Los Gatos,” the hilltops above Saratoga and the Lexington Reservoir; “Summit Road,” south of Highway 17 above Soquel; “Santa Cruz Coastal Foothills,” the Highway 17 corridor below the summit area and moving toward the coast; and “Corralitos/Pleasant Valley,” the southern end of the region above Watsonville. For the past few years, local winemakers, wine writers and wine industry folks have been gathering a few weeks before Pinot Paradise at Burrell School Vineyards for a blind tasting of several vintages of local pinot noir. The tasting offers an early look at what’s in store for the event and an assessment of how the region’s signature varietal is doing. This year, the group tasted wines broken down by the six subregions. I missed the pre-tasting this year but sampled some of the group’s top picks from 2006 and 2007. The wineries and respective subregions were Heart O’ the Mountain (Santa Cruz Coastal Foothills), Thomas Fogarty Winery (Skyline), Silver Mountain Vineyards (Summit Road), Beauregard (Ben Lomond Mountain), Sarah’s Vineyard (Corralitos/Pleasant Valley), Mount Eden Vineyards (Saratoga/Los Gatos) and Beauregard Vineyards (Ben Lomond Mountain). Although I tasted some truly fantastic wines, especially Sarah’s Vineyard 2007 and Silver Mountain’s 2006 offerings, I confess I need to taste more wine from each category before I buy into the subgroup designation, which is just what Pinot Paradise allows you to do. For me, there’s as much that unites the wines I tried as divides them. All express an intensity of flavor and masculinity that I don’t taste in pinot noirs from, say, Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley or Napa County’s Carneros region. That said, many of the wines do display clear differences, but I’m not ready to say it’s terroir (the taste of place) or winemaker style. Or both. I need to drink more to find out. I’ll be twittering from Pinot Paradise live at twitter.com/stett_Holbrook and let you know what I discover. On a sad note, Muccigrosso Vineyards winemaker E=>AA>E@6J;;B6Cdied unexpectedly in his sleep March 12. He was 34. Kauffman was a big fan of Pinot Paradise and a devotee of pinot noir. For eight years, Kauffman was the winemaker for Muccigrosso Vineyards, where he was partners with Michael and Lynne Muccigrosso. Under the Muccigrosso label, Kauffman created award-winning pinot noir, zinfandel and a zinfandel-syrah blend, called Table Two. He got his start at David Bruce Winery while in his senior year at UC–Santa Cruz. He worked as both cellar master and assistant winemaker at David Bruce Winery. An avid surfer, he attended UC–Santa Barbara from 1993 to 1995, completing his undergraduate studies at UC–Santa Cruz in 1997. A celebration of his life was held March 22 at Byington Vineyards and Winery. Donations in his name may be made to the Kuumbwa Jazz Society of Santa Cruz (kuumbwajazz.org); the Gail E. King Memorial Scholarship fund at Goshen College, Goshen, IN, 46526, or the National Democratic Party.

PINOT PARADISE takes place March 28–29. On March 28, ‘Pathway to Pinot Paradise’ offers a selfguided wine tour, barrel tastings and some library wines at participating Santa Cruz Mountains pinot noir–producing wineries. Cost is $25. March 29 is the main event. The ‘grand cruz tasting’ at Campbell’s Villa Ragusa is 2–5pm and features more than 30 wineries and food from a dozen local restaurants. Cost is $55 in advance and $65 at the door. For info, go to scmwa.com/PinotParadise.htm.

HEN Manresaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 96K>9@>C8=squared off against celebrity chef 7D77N;A6N on >GDC8=:;this past Sunday it was almost an unfair ďŹ ght. Kinch enjoys some celebrity status thanks to his two Michelin stars and avant-garde cooking, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a working chef whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the kitchen of his Los Gatos restaurant ďŹ ve days a week and his skills are razor sharp. Flay, who owns a half-dozen restaurants in New York City, Las Vegas and elsewhere, has some real bona ďŹ des as a cook, but these days heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a celebrity than a chef. He has competed and won on Iron Chef before, so he had an advantage over ďŹ rst-timer Kinch, but for me the match-up was like pairing a hungry street ďŹ ghter like Rocky Balboa against a pampered and comfortable Apollo Creed. And there were the Brussels sprouts. Iron Chef competitors must incorporate a secret ingredient in their dishes thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announced at the beginning of the show. This time it was cabbage, including Brussels sprouts. As a Santa Cruz resident and surfer, Kinch is intimately familiar with the little green vegetables. Santa Cruz County is the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital for sprout production and a trip to many surf spots north of Santa Cruz involves a walk through Brussels sprouts ďŹ elds. Kinch and his competition sous-chefs J6B:HHN=67DJIand ?D=CE6JA86GBDC6took the event very seriously and practiced for weeks after service ended at Manresa in timed cooking trials. While the secret ingredient isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unveiled until the last minute, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly a mystery. Iron Chef competitors receive a list of three possible secret ingredients. For Kinchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battle, it was cabbage, squab and branzino (a sea bass). Kinch and crew practiced with all ingredients. At ďŹ rst, he said he hoped it would be squab, but in time he came to appreciate the versatility of cabbage. The best prep of all, Kinch said, was sitting in the audience and watching another show being taped the night before his cook-off, an experience that allowed him to observe how the kitchen functioned in real time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the best possible knowledge to have,â&#x20AC;? he said. So when the day in Kitchen Stadium ďŹ nally came (which happened to be last June), for me the battle was over before it started. While Kinch called the event â&#x20AC;&#x153;nervewracking,â&#x20AC;? he and his crew absolutely slaughtered the ďŹ&#x201A;atfooted Flay. OK, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say it: they ďŹ&#x201A;ayed him. Kinch isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go back on Iron Chef, but he called it a great experience and a real boost for his restaurant. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s considering replicating his winning Iron Chef dishes at Manresa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just have to convince myself there are people who like cabbage enough to eat a whole meal of it,â&#x20AC;? he said. After demonstrating what he can do with the humble vegetable, my guess is there are. Stett Holbrook (sholbrook@metronews.com)

The restaurant combines elements of the fast-food world and the labor-intensive slow cooking of more high-end restaurants. Chef and owner Charlie Ayers, famous for his work at Google, says there are people working in the kitchen 22 hours a day because they make everything themselves from bread to soda pop to ketchup. Ayers calls his concept â&#x20AC;&#x153;slow food fastâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;good-to-eat and good-for-you food that he hopes will appeal to Silicon Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frenetic, too-busy-to-eat pace of life. After my three visits, I would say he has hit the mark. The food is affordable and often quite good. The dining room is warm and inviting and in full view of the open kitchen. A big communal table lighted by a chandelier made from old milk bottles greets you as you walk in. The place gets noisy, but the old timber planks above the dining room help soften the din. Opposite the dining room is a long bar and a takeout market with pre-made food and made-to-order sandwiches that features self-checkout registers for the time-pressed. Stett Holbrook

!Gjmn Eccentric comedy ‘Sunshine Cleaning’ clean ups_48

Out of Her Head Lily Tomlin shares her multiplepersonality disorder By Steve Palopoli

A GILTING LILY Dpnfejbo!Mjmz!Upnmjo! ibt!qpqvmbufe!b!xpsme! pg!xbdlz!dibsbdufst/

NYONE who saw the now-infamous YouTube videos of Lily Tomlin and director David O. Russell melting down on the set of I Heart Huckabees can understand why Tomlin would prefer to work onstage—or maybe even give up on Hollywood completely. But it didn’t take a nutjob film auteur to make the multiple Tony-awardwinning comedian appreciate live performance. “I like the stage best of all, and that’s what I would do if I could do nothing else,” Tomlin tells Metro. “I guess I’ll do it till I drop.” Though she’s never really stopped touring in a career that spans over three decades, Tomlin’s newest tour is a comeback—not for her, but for many of the characters she’s created over the years. “An Evening of Classic Lily Tomlin,” which she will perform at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City on Sunday, is not a stage show like her Broadway hit The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, but a retrospective of multiple personalities. “It’s a compilation of characters I’ve done for the last 30 years. It’s pretty informal,” she says. “I fancy that some of them are classic.” History is on her side; her creations

have had a way of winding their way into the public consciousness—or just outright exploding overnight. That was pretty much the case with the two characters that launched her career: the 5-year-old Edith Ann, and the abrasive telephone operator Ernestine. After Tomlin joined the ground-breaking sketch comedy show Laugh-In in 1969, Ernestine in particular practically defined the kind of stardom that would later become a template for comedians on Saturday Night Live: an oddball character with one or more quotable catchphrases— in Ernestine’s case, lines like “Have I reached the party to whom I am speaking?” and “One ringy dingy, two ringy dingy”—who becomes the talk of workplace watercoolers everywhere. To this day, Tomlin doesn’t really know what hit her. “How could I get so lucky with that character?” she wonders. “She really is one of those serendipitous things, you don’t know how they happen.” Which isn’t to say it was dumb luck. Tomlin had been perfecting Ernestine as part of her standup act when Laugh-In heard about her. “I didn’t want to go on Laugh-In in those days. I thought it was so square,” she remembers. “I thought I was the

hippest of the hip, which I wasn’t.” Now she’s glad she gave herself an attitude adjustment. “I got on the right show at the right time,” she says. “They welcomed characters, and it was a huge show, and Ernestine and Edith were such big characters.” At the time, there was a rising tide of public outrage at AT&T’s monopoly, and Tomlin’s portrayal of Ernestine gave it a voice. First, AT&T sent spies to the show every week, then they tried to take out some of the sting by hiring Tomlin. She remembers bursting into tears when her assistant told her about the offer, because “it was such an insult to what I thought was my artistry.” “They tried to get me to do commercials, but back then you did not do something for money. You couldn’t live with yourself. I didn’t care about being famous, and I didn’t care about making a lot of money,” she says. Tomlin says it all with a dry tone and an occasional sigh, as if shaking her head a little at what she considers the naive and overserious attitude she wielded in the early years of her career. “I’m not too serious about anything anymore,” she says. And yet, there’s a pride, too—like her memories of being so obsessed

with any new material she was working on that she would grab people out of the laundromat and take them to her New York apartment to make them listen to a monologue. “I was just mad for what I did,” she says. And she still is, “but I don’t drag ’em out of the laundromat anymore.” Over the years, Tomlin’s other popular characters have included everyone from the upper-class Tasteful Lady to Susie the Sorority Girl to Pervis Hawkins, a male, African American R&B singer she started doing in the ’70s to many a squirming white audience member. The tricky thing about these characters for their creator is that they get more and more real over the years, as they develop new dimensions, and new details in their life stories. Including, of course, her most famous creation: “Ernestine is a person to me. She’s out there somewhere.” And if they ever met? It could get complicated. “She loathes me,” says Tomlin, “because she thinks I’ve ripped her off.” LILY TOMLIN performs Sunday, (March 29) at 7:30pm at the Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City. Tickets $60– $85. (Cityboxoffice.com or 650.369.4119.)

Power Lines

A sibling rivalry crackles in Teatro Visión’s charged drama ‘Water & Power’

T

HERE ARE so many good moments and strong performances in the current Teatro Visión production of Richard Montoya’s Water & Power that I scarcely know where to begin. So let’s start with the play’s prologue, delivered by the gruff, wheelchair-bound shaman BROTHERLY LACERATIONS!!Dbsmpt!)mfgu*!boe! Nbvsjdjp!Nfoep{b!qmbz!b!qbjs!pg!cspuifstÒpof!qpm-! gangbanger Norte/Sur (Rubén C. pof!qpmjdfÒjo!UfbuspÖt!ÕXbufs!'!Qpxfs/Ö González), who rolls himself onto the stage to inform us that the lords of death are severely pissed off (his language is more colorful). As thunder claps around him and a young, shirtless “deer dancer” (Alejandro Flores) performs ritual steps in the background, we are immediately under the broken man’s spell. Up goes the scrim to reveal a budget motel room on the Sunset Strip, where a paranoid, drug-addled cop named Gabriel García (Mauricio Mendoza) is holed up, drinking and snorting himself into a frenzy. A man enters and the cop proceeds to kick the crap out of him. A setup? No, it’s just two brothers saying hello. After dusting himself off, Gilbert García (Carlos Mendoza, who is Mauricio’s real-life twin) surveys the wreckage of his brother’s life as he takes calls on his Blackberry. Gilbert is a rising star in Sacramento, a Chicano-turned-Hispanic who honors his roots in East Los Angeles by doing things like sponsoring a bill to create a green zone along the L.A. River near his childhood home. He is the Water of the play’s title, a nickname given to him by his father, Asunción (David Cavallero). Gabriel, Gilbert’s twin, is Power. Montoya definitely wants us to consider the meaning behind these names (Power is a cop, Water attempts to float all boats through his work as a legislator), but the playwright is no mere symbolist—both monikers, it turns out, are lifted from the patch on their father’s coveralls (Asunción dug ditches for the Department of Water and Power). Throughout the play, flashbacks to the formative exchanges between the father and his sons (played one at a time by the guileless Alejandro Flores) are like glimpses of Gabby and Gibby’s personal creation myths. From these elements, Montoya’s wonderfully written and cleverly staged play unfolds. We meet Norte/Sur several more times; the scene in which he and Power discuss the relative merits of different sources of “muscle” is at once hilarious and chilling. We follow Water to the lair of the Fixer (a deliciously smarmy Tom Gough) to see just how much humiliation Water will take in his quest to extricate his brother from the hole he’s dug for himself. And under it all is the rumble of the machinery that keeps L.A. humming. As others have already noted (the play was first performed at the Mark Taper Forum in 2006 and at San Diego Rep in 2008), Water & Power is part Greek tragedy, part stage noir, but it’s the heart and soul underlying the piece that makes it truly thrilling. Ben Marks

WATER & POWER plays Thursday–Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm through March 29 at the Mexican Heritage Plaza Theater, 1700 Alum Rock Ave., San Jose. Tickets are $10–$24.

‘The Three Musketeers’ get some postmodern help in new City Lights adaptation

T

HERE IS a good chance that the whole reasoning behind City Lights’ production of The Three Musketeers was to stage some sword fights. Barely five minutes go by without a rapier being pulled and a lot of twirling and jumping about. But this wasn’t just boys with sticks, this was a testament to the knowledge of Kit Wilder, the fight director, whose realistic sword duels were the icing on the cake of an already fun play. This adaptation, by Wilder, of The Three Musketeers is an amusing take on Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale of adventuring and courtly politics in 17th-century France. The play starts out with the actor who plays the lead, d’Artagnan, a no-show. With no one else to turn to, the cast decides that a stagehand (Thomas Gorrebeeck) can play the part. And so the stagehand goes through the play with his trusty script to keep him on the straight and narrow. This device is cleverly used to explain some plot points and keep the comedy moving along. This is obviously a very loose interpretation of the novel, but for a two-hour play it does a good job of following the original story line. Although primarily a comedy first, the play does include some deeper moments, most of them coming in the second act. The set is simple, with only a few props, but the cast is engaging and the entire play feels like an intimate affair. The characters who stole the scene every time were Porthos (John Romano) and Lady de Winter (Vera Sloan). The effeminate Porthos was a little over the top but not so much that he took the audience out of the scene. Instead, Romano pulled off a delicate balance between acting and buffoonery. It took me awhile to pay attention to what Sloan’s de Winter was saying, because I was initially distracted by her very impressive décolletage. Once I saw around that, she was a joy and a hoot. Sloan plays the evil femme fatale we often end up rooting for because we want to see her onstage more, especially since the other female characters don’t seem as strong or as interesting. Jeffrey Bracco’s direction takes a story that has been done many times and gives it a fresh spin. The Three Musketeers is a good sturdy story that can sustain this amusing twist. Colleen Watson THE THREE MUSKETEERS, a City Lights Theater Company production, plays Thursday–Saturday at 8pm and Sunday (March 29 and April 5) at 7pm and (April 19) at 2pm, with a Wednesday (April 15) show at 8pm through April 19 at City Lights, 529 S. Second St., San Jose. Tickets are $15–$30. (408.295.4200) Eg^ciZgh>cX#!EVad6aid! +*%#('+#&++-#

San Jose Rep adapts â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Kite Runnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the stage in new production

T

HE SIGHTS and sounds of Afghanistan come alive onstage as San Jose as the Repertory Theatre hosts the world premiere of The Kite Runner. Adapted from the bestselling novel by local author Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner, a story about friendship, betrayal and love, is a journey through the history of Afghanistan, from preSoviet days to a war-torn country ravaged by the Taliban. It is told through the memories of a boy named Amir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really jumped at the chance because I loved the book,â&#x20AC;? says stage director David Ira Goldstein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, I jumped because it was a little scary, because I had to work with a culture I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about.â&#x20AC;? Goldstein says that he faced a number of challenges condensing a novel that spans the world and three decades into a 2 1/2-hour play: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many people have read this book and loved it, and you certainly want to honor their understanding and their knowledge of the story.â&#x20AC;? Even though The Kite Runner was made into a movie in 2007, Goldstein believes the stage version is truer to the book than the ďŹ lm was. He credits this advantage to playwright Matthew Spangler, an assistant professor of communication studies at San Jose State University, who did the stage adaptation. Through the use of props, costumes, lights and sounds, the audience is taken on a journey that stretches from the streets of Kabul to the bustle of the Bay Area and even includes the kite-ďŹ ghting sequences, a major pastime in Afghanistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt more of an obligation to get it right when we were talking about Afghanistan and Pakistan,â&#x20AC;? Goldstein says. For this reason, Goldstein defers to a consultant to help him answers questions about dress and customs. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more the portrayal and the interactions of the characters, and the imaginations of the audience, that re-create the sense and feel of Afghanistan, than elaborate scenery. The stage version mostly stays true to the book, except for a few changes that were made at Hosseiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own request. The production was done â&#x20AC;&#x153;all with the blessing with Khaled,â&#x20AC;? Goldstein says. Andrea Frainier THE KITE RUNNER previews March 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;26 and opens March 27; regular shows are Tuesday at 7:30pm, Wednesday at 11am and/or 8pm, Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 3 and 8pm and Sunday at 2pm through April 19 at the Rep, 101 Paseo de San Antonio, San Jose. Tickets are $27â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$48. (408.367.7255).

Scrubbers

Amy Adams and Emily Blunt toil in the Land of Disenchantment in comic ‘Sunshine Cleaning’ By Richard von Busack

S

TARTING with a suicide—a comedic one, in a sporting-goods store—the macabre Sunshine Cleaning maintains its comedic mood of loss and selfdestruction to the end. The film emerged at the 2008 Sundance, and then it submerged, despite A-list stars Amy Adams and Emily Blunt. In its present form, it appears badly trampled by studio executives with cold feet; the happy ending couldn’t have been more trumped up if a game-show host wrote it. Odd that a movie about the job of cleaning would go so wrong, trying to clean up every loose end in the plot. And yet Sunshine Cleaning has some integrity even in its cut-up form. At its best, the film evinces that paradoxical quality one seeks in indie movies—that quality of being both loose and well built. Part of what makes the film well built is the Barbara Ehrenreich factor. Sunshine Cleaning seems very knowing about pink-collar work. In Albuquerque, N.M., Rose (Adams) is the single parent of an odd boy, Oscar (Jason Spevack). Rose works for a Merrie Maids–like outfit. She also keeps company with Mack, a married plainclothes cop (Steve Zahn) whom she meets in motels. Her sister, Norah (Blunt), has repeatedly flunked out of any job more demanding than baby-sitting Oscar. After a session at the motel, Mack,

sort of lying around and thinking aloud, recalls the big money the biohazard cleaners got picking up the pieces of a suicide at the sporting-goods store. Rose decides she knows enough about scrubbing to do such a job, and she recruits the feckless Norah to help. They are aided by a kind industrial cleaning and supplies store owner named Winston (the Matt Dillonish Clifton Collins Jr., who played Perry Smith in Capote). Cleaning up the vast ickiness of trailers and rented rooms, Adams and Blunt get to bounce off one another. And as it often does, the grossness gives way to pity—a pity that cancels out the girls’ own selfpity. But when Rose starts to meet up with some of her fancy former pals from high school, they are not as impressed with her small business. Meanwhile, Norah decides to track down and stalk Lynn, the grownup child of one of their dead clients, after finding Lynn’s photos in a trailer. But Lynn (Mary Jane Rajskub) has an agenda of her own. Sunshine Cleaning does without conventional romance, and that’s what I mean by integrity. Director Christine Jeffs is one of those tough female Anzac directors (Rain, Sylvia) I mentioned last week in connection with Half-Life. The film is strongly impressionistic; what one critic described as available-light filmmaking actually looks more like a motif: the colors of dried

blood, pink concrete and the strange clutter of old people’s homes. Here, New Mexico looks less like the land of enchantment than the land of existentialism. The film has an outsider’s skeptical view of settling down. From what’s here, it looks as if the Lynn/Norah angle was where the romance was meant to be and this faced some editor’s ax. The date Lynn and Norah go on together gets truncated right in the middle, as Norah is doing a session of “trestling”—clinging onto a railroad trestle as a train speeds overhead. The angle of the Winston and Rose relationship is also left up in the air, which is more satisfying. The self-amused Winston has a hobby; when not selling cleaning supplies, he’s building military model planes. This isn’t easy, because he lost an arm under circumstances that we never learn, even though Oscar asks him how it happened—asks him bluntly, just like a little boy will. There is all sorts of backstory potential here. What a pleasure it is that director Jeffs decides to avoid it! Collins apparently has two arms in real life, but he looks more convincing than many fake amputees we get in the movies—he acts asymmetrical. The independent cinema demands more backstories left up in the air. When we find out about Rose and Norah’s childhood, it’s unlikely as hell; you can practically hear a producer asking dumb questions like

“Why does a girl as good-looking as Rose have such low self-esteem?” That Rose is too high-class for her surroundings should have been something else that just happened, but we’re given an unlikely backstory about Rose and Norah’s missing mom, a story that would have been better left up in the air, just like the story of Winston’s arm. If Rose and Norah’s mom had just lit out for the territories, it would have suited what we know about the girls’ father, Joe (Alan Arkin): an aged failure in one dodgy business after another, from snack products to past-their-prime shrimp. As always, Arkin looks so fit that he’ll probably get a shovel and bury us all someday. One of the tangy corners of the movies is that Arkin’s Joe breaks a promise to Oscar and no one manifests any outrage; he’s been breaking promises for a long time. The good thing about the rewriting and reshooting work on Sunshine Cleaning is that the renovation all shows; you can tell exactly where the compromises were made, know the obvious cowardly reasons why they were done, and we can overlook them in the bigger scheme of things. SUNSHINE CLEANING (R; 102 min.), directed by Christine Jeffs, written by Megan Holley, photographed by John Toon and starring Emily Blunt and Amy Adams, plays at selected theaters and opens March 27 at the Camera Cinemas.

Revivals The Apartment/It Should Happen to You (1960/1954) In The Apartment, a minor functionary (Jack Lemmon) receives temporary status through pandering to a lecherous crew of his superiors, especially Fred MacMurray; Shirley MacLaine is the tough-mouthed but tenderhearted elevator girl who snaps him out of it. TerriďŹ c locations help the mood of Manhattan isolation, and MacLaine is adorableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but the ďŹ lm has a serious moralizing streak. BILLED WITH It Should Happen To You. Ordinary little shop girl Gladys Glover (Judy Holliday) rents a billboard at Columbus Circle to promote herself, and the trick worksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;much to the discomďŹ ture of her honest documentarymaker boyfriend (Lemmon). The mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s NYC locations are time-capsule delights, and while Holidayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wise-foolishness is beguiling; my favorite moment is a speech in which she holds off the lecherous Peter Lawford. To get him talking (and to stop him nibbling her ear), she asks him if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lonely, living there in that bachelor apartment all by himself. Yes, he admits, lowering his eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could get a parrot,â&#x20AC;? she suggests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could be talking to it, and it could be talking to you. I mean, you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be talking to each other, but it would be talk.â&#x20AC;? (Plays Mar 28-30 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB) The Crowd/Our Daily Bread (1928/1934) The adventures of a workingclass couple: he (James Murray) is a clerk at a vast ofďŹ ce, and she (Eleanor Boardman) does her best to keep him from the snares of the immense city. One of the masterpieces of American silent ďŹ lmmakingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;risky with its use of a nonstar cast and a downbeat endingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with scenes that inďŹ&#x201A;uenced talents as different as Preston Sturges, Orson Welles and Billy Wilder. Such quotations may prove what critic Andrew Sarris said, that director King Vidor was a creator of great scenes rather than great movies. Still, the last shot at a theater isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t soon forgotten. BILLED WITH Our Daily Bread, Vidorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-produced sequel, in which the Sims head for a farm in the country. A new cast takes over, and the ďŹ lm wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as well received as the original: Our Daily Bread was denounced as communist by the Hearst papers, and as capitalist by the Communist papers.

Tribulation 99 ‘Knowing’: Bad day with black rocks

Y

OU CAN always tell when two MIT professors meet each other, because one will ask the other, “What’s on your scientific mind?” In addition to this dialogue, Knowing could have used some other methods to keep reminding us that Nic Cage is an astrophysicist. Perhaps a novelty T-shirt? Once one of the most interesting actors in the American cinema, Cage is now the Peter Lorre of CGI: being forced, wide-eyed and ranting, to realize the shocking truth and to shrink in terror before it. Cage’s John Koestler is a soul-sick man, depressed because of the loss of his wife a year before; do the math on the story as he tells it, and the unfortunate wife died just as he was blowing leaves on his lawn at 3am. Who knows how these eggheads function? Koestler’s shambly house must have been renovated by David Fincher; it’s exactly as described by Robert Benchley in his satire of naturalistic literature, Family Life in America: “The living room in the Twillys’ house was so damp that thick, soppy moss grew all over the walls.” Ignoring the decline of his home, Koestler overparents his pale son, Caleb (Chandler Canterbury). Under some amusing circumstances involving an elementary-school time capsule, the scientist gets his hands on a sheet of numbers. When decoded, they turn out to accurately predict every disaster of the coming 50 years. As the horrific truth gradually sets in, young Caleb finds himself pestered by megrims of his own: “whisperers” (elongated peroxided Billy Idols in Wehrmacht greatcoats, haunting the woods). They stuff the boy’s head with mathematical figures and present to him a spectacle of a world in flames, including, tragically, a moose on fire. Oh, for a moose of fire. Paying little mind to repeated news reports of increasing monkeyshines by the electromagnetic spectrum, John decides to find and harass the daughter of the original cryptographer. In a remote trailer in the woods, John and Diana (Rose Byrne) learn the secret of the numbers— and the fateful doom they contain. After plagiarizing a forgotten novel called Childhood’s End by an obscure science-fiction writer named Arthur C. Clarke, the various writers on Knowing’s script set out to disprove the wisdom of the hive-mind theory by chucking it all and heading for the Bible. Wandering into this film on a Sunday, I realized that I had walked into a Baptist church instead. The film sets you straight: terrorizing you with apocalypse, it states that faith is the only salvation, emphasizing that only by becoming like children can we learn the truth (because children are as credulous as hell, that’s why). To his credit, director Alex Proyas pours on the money shots of destruction. Proyas offers us the proverbial spectacular subway wreck that you can’t take your eyes off, complete with POV shots of the cab for a more close-up angle on the mushing up of bystanders. At last, the fiery grand finale at the end—but it turns out to be nearly 10 minutes of a prolix, sobbing movie, and the CGI-gray skies during the plane crash aren’t realistic enough to make it all more than just a momentary wow. Knowing isn’t worth the more lasting annoyance of getting proselytized in a theater, right where you’d thought you’d escaped the godly for a little while. Richard von Busack KNOWING (PG-13; 120 min.), directed by Alex Proyas, written by Ryne Douglas Pearson et al., photographed by Simon Duggan and starring Nicolas Cage, plays valleywide.

FILM REVIEW

Confessions of a Shopaholic (PG) Isla Fisher’s zany Rebecca is a wouldbe journalist who has to take a job at a financial magazine to pay off her debts. Hugh Dancy is the movie’s Darcy, an editor who encourages Rebecca to stretch herself as a writer. The result is an anonymous column that becomes a sensation. The problem is that while Rebecca rages against the national credit card problem in easy-to-read print, she’s defaulting on her debts and helplessly buying new clothes and shoes. The film has to have it both ways, selling an insanely costly lifestyle while trying to remind people not to get behind in their payments. (RvB)

that he has landed a smooth pickup, but he’s knocked cold for 16 hours: Claire (Julia Roberts) has slipped him a champagne Mickey. In 2008, Ray and Claire—still feuding—now are working together for a cosmetics company, safeguarding the interests of a savage underdog named Garsik (Paul Giamatti), who is nipping at the heels of a rival corporation, chaired by Tully (Tom Wilkinson). Roberts is probably trying to do Eva Marie Saint’s Eve Kendall in North by Northwest, with less WASP politeness. But something, perhaps plastic surgery or Botox, has given her an ominous mask. Owen’s undoubted masculinity is undimmed, but he gets peevish when he’s dealing with Claire’s chilly trickery. (RvB)

Duplicity (PG-13; 125 min.) Curdled swank. It tries to recall the 1960s slice-of-cake style with split-screen, harpsichord music, treacherous lovers and exotic locations. Director/writer Tony Gilroy adds some modern convoluted storytelling. MI6 agent Ray (Owen) thinks

Gomorrah (Unrated; 137 min.) One of the least romanticized movies about organized crime ever made. Director Matteo Garrone is, in a sense, going up against his entire country. The film weaves a quintet of stories out of this battlefront. Young Toto, a delivery boy, gets

a job with the local drug gangs. The unsavory waste-removal magnate Franco (Toni Servillo) is clandestinely burying toxic waste in a marble quarry. Two young antic idiots, addled by visions of Pacino in Scarface, take up some stolen guns and go on a minor crime spree. The middle-aged Don Ciro (Gianfelice Imparto) is a clerk for the local mob. Director Garrone is outraged, but it hasn’t made him inarticulate. He presumes the viewer is not a thug, and not in the mood to watch torture. When it comes, the violence comes out of nowhere; it’s scary, and it hurts. (RvB) Gran Torino (R; 116 min.) Korean War vet and auto-plant worker Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) has just been widowed. Kowalski is coping with the new faces in the neighborhood. Even though they’re “good” Asians (Hmong who fought on the U.S. side in Vietnam), Kowalski will have nothing to do with them. When a fatherless kid, Thao (Bee Vang), from next door is pressured into stealing Kowalski’s cherished muscle car, Kowalski puts the boy to work. This good solid labor attracts the fury of a local gang of Lao thugs. Of course, the tottering Kowalski knows how to handle loads like these, in the way Eastwood has been handling them before most of us were born. The actor is comic here. He’s aware of the humor of gramps with a gun, grrring as he surveys the next generation or sopping up a cooler full of Pabst Blue Ribbon. We can buy the tale, even if Kowalksi is about as authentic an embodiment of working-class America as Joe the Plumber. (RvB) The Great Buck Howard (PG; 87 min) Basically just a lot of incidents, but they sound authentic. Sean McGinley’s minor but appealing comedy has a strong spine in the form of John Malkovich, here with oily toupee, well-worn tux, cappedlooking teeth and indeterminate sexuality. The grand Malkovich is Buck Howard, a temperamental mentalist who plays—as he puts it—”400 shows a year.” Colin Hanks plays a law school dropout with some vague notions of being a writer; he is scooped up to be part of the entourage of the Great Buck Howard. Tom Hanks himself comes in for a few scenes to play Troy’s disapproving dad. Real-life talk show hosts from Jon to Martha Stewart endure Howard’s trademark glad-hand handshake. Among the cast, I was sorriest to lose Santa Cruz’s own Adam Scott, who drops out early. Scott, who plays a seething assistant, really brings a ton of wrath into his comedy. (RvB) Hotel for Dogs (PG; 100 min.) Two neglected foster children (Emma Roberts, Jake T. Austin) take over an abandoned hotel and turn it into a refuge for stray dogs. Strictly kid fodder, though Lisa Kudrow and Kevin Dillon (of Entourage) have some amusing turns as the would-be rockmusician foster parents, and Don Cheadle plays the nicest adult in the movie, a social worker. Director Thor Freudenthal tries to set up some visual comedy bits, as well as a strong opening and closing sequence about the differences between an idealized family in the 1950s and 2009. And the computer-prettified Central City (actually downtown L.A.) makes for a different backdrop than usual. Still, the spectacle of dog tricks and dog-feeding, dog-entertaining and dog-poop-cleaning-up gadgets pale after about an hour. (RvB) I Love You, Man (R) Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as they put it in the famous homosexual-panic episode of Seinfeld. The sure-to-be hilarious premise finds Paul going on “man dates” in order to choose a best man for his wedding. The Last House on the Left (R; 100 min.) Based on Bergman’s Virgin Spring, the original Last House on the Left questions whether, when forced into the most extreme circumstances, there is really much difference between the most wretched criminals and the most civilized suburbanites. The remake is not about the same things. But this is not a shock film, it’s not an exploitation flick, it’s not even really a horror film. It’s just a very 21st-century thriller. The plot is basically


M E T R O S I L I C O N VA L L E Y MARCH 25-31, 2009FILM the same: Krug (Garret Dillahunt) and his criminal family kidnap Mari (Sara Paxton) and Paige (Martha MacIsaac); rape, stab and shoot them; then by coincidence end up at the home of Mari’s parents. It’s not hard to imagine the shenanigans that ensue. But this time, everything seems oddly logical. Everyone has a reason for doing what they’re doing, even if it’s an evil one: the criminals seem like they might let Mari and Paige go, but then Mari tries to escape. The parents don’t start taking out the perps for revenge purposes, they do it because they’re trying to save someone’s life. It’s all sort of civilized, really, and even though the attack scenes against the girls are vicious, they’re not even remotely on the level of the original. (SP) Miss March (R) Miss March After a four-year coma, a boy discovers that his girlfriend has become a Playboy centerfold and decides to storm Hefner’s mansion to get her back. Directed by Zach Cregger and Trever Moore of Whitest Kids U Know. (RvB) Race to Witch Mountain (PG; 99 min.) Kids today are no doubt thinking “What is Witch Mountain, and why would anyone race to a mountain that appears to be infested with practitioners of the dark arts?” Geez, kids, relax already! You see, back in the day, when we were kids, we had a movie called Escape to Witch Mountain. It was about these two orphans with spooky powers who have to get away from an evil guy who wants to exploit them. UFOs were also involved. For some reason, this seemed like the greatest thing ever to us. There were all these sequels and remakes—somebody always seemed to either be escaping to Witch Mountain or from Witch Mountain or something. Now here’s another remake, with new orphans and tThe Rock as the guy trying to save them. What this has to do with a race I haven’t figured out. (SP) Slumdog Millionaire (R; 120 min.) A movie about Indian poverty even the Wall Street Journal could love (and did). Danny Boyle’s grotty, sentimental adventure concerns a winner on an Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, hosted by a subcontinental Regis Philbin (Anil Kapoor). Jamal (Dev Patel) screws up his face as he tries to remember the answers. In flashback, we learn how Jamal climbed out of the horrendous Mumbai slums. Boyle reprises some of the bits that made him famous in Trainspotting, but in this film-festival hit, the square peg of Bombay ghetto life is driven into the round hole of a Dickensian plot. (RvB) Taken (PG-13; 93 min.) Ignorant and extremely repetitive thriller about a ring of Albanian white-slavers, heisting “guaranteed pure” young flesh for Jabba the Arab. A squandered Liam Neeson plays the avenging American dad on the trail of his daughter. Of universal appeal in the sense that the Americans can see their worst fears about the Europeans, and the Europeans can see overprivileged American tourists get what’s coming to them, (RvB) Two Lovers (R; 110 min.) Gwyneth Paltrow’s Michelle is an uninspired cipher, a gold digger with a heart of gold. Joaquin Phoenix does as best he can with director and co-writer and coproducer James Gray’s mawkish work. His Leonard has just come home to live again with his parents (Isabella Rossellini and Moni Moshonov). The boy is “sensitive” and clearly suicidal. Michelle, “trouble” stamped all over her lovely frame, moves in upstairs. She and Leonard have a not-so-cute meet, and she adopts him as a needy brother. He, of course, lusts after all of her WASPy fabulousness. Phoenix’s job here is to make Leonard’s boyman’s plight shine bright to the audience. He shambles, he mutters, he takes listless photos. It’s not Phoenix’s fault that James Gray chose the fatal triangulation of writerdirector-producer; such myopic immersion always results off-kilter, and Leonard is not a sympathetic character for most over age 16. (GG)

Watchmen (R; 163 min.) In 1985, in a parallel universe where Nixon has been president for a generation, the Cold War has been held in check by an American atomic Superman, a disassociative demigod known as Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup, looking like an indigo Ben Kingsley). After a public meltdown, he vanishes, leaving behind his lover, Laurie (Malin Akerman), and the beginnings of a seemingly inevitable nuclear war. Less noticed is the brutal murder of a former CIA assassin (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The killing is investigated by a dogged but disordered masked man, Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley), and his former partner (Patrick Wilson), the movie’s good cop. The intricate but rewarding adaptation of the MooreGibbons graphic novel by Zach Snyder invites comparison to Kubrick, for chill and scope, as well as occasional wonkiness. Crudup has all the power and remoteness of a deity. Read a full-length review online at www.metroactive.com. (RvB)

Wendy and Lucy (R; 80 min.) A gently made, simple story, with a great deal of compassion in it. As in director Kelly Reichardt’s previous feature, Old Joy, the Oregon surroundings mellow things out, while the sense of brewing financial trouble keeps the tension going. If you’ve ever had the foolish reverie of getting a sleeping bag and heading to the rail yards to hop a freight train north, Wendy and Lucy idealizes that dream even while not succumbing to it. At one point, we see heroine Wendy Carroll (Michelle Williams), wearing a small blue riding hood, in a open boxcar cruising among the dreamy, foggy trees. Reichardt’s provides further realism in the use of natural sound, with occasional unsynched noise, such as the blare of train horns over talk at a campfire. Finally, as in Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy is about broke people trying to cope. Some poorer members of the audiences who see Wendy and Lucy will think this is a great movie on those grounds alone. Maybe they’ll just be responding to the attention they get so rarely. (RvB)

Failure to Act Documentary ‘Against the Tide’ shows how Americans stalled when the Holocaust threatened

U

P UNTIL its last 10 minutes, the documentary Against the Tide, showing March 26 at a special Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival screening, bravely traces forgotten history and rattles the skeleton in a couple of famous men’s closets. Rabbi Stephen Wise and Franklin Roosevelt turn out to have put the brakes on the efforts to save European Jewry from the Nazis. The central figure in the film is Peter Bergson, a firebrand whose direct appeal to the public embarrassed the assimilated, low-profile Jews of 1940s America. These community leaders feared the public would rephrase World War II as a Jewish invention. Stung by Bergson’s end-runs around the Establishment, Wise supposedly described Bergson as “worse than Hitler,” on the grounds that Hitler was fomenting anti-Semitism only in Europe but Bergson’s pushiness was stirring it up in America. Roosevelt’s cabinet prevaricated as ghetto after European ghetto was liquidated. Breckinridge Long, the bigoted and corrupt bureaucrat in charge of the State Department’s visa department, feared an influx of Jewish radicals. Long did what he could to stall immigration. Even after the Nazi crimes gradually became public knowledge, the progress to rescue the Jews didn’t accelerate. Churchill pressured the Allies to bomb the railways to the concentration camps, but the policy was nixed by FDR’s administration. Meanwhile, smuggled-out news of the Holocaust only made it to page 10 of The New York Times. Max Frankel, former editor, claims the reason was that publisher Arthur Sulzberger was “skittish” about being Jewish—so much for the primacy of the Jewish-owned media. And yet the Times accepted the ads co-written by Bergson, who partnered with famed studio-era scriptwriter Ben Hecht. In many ads, Ben Hecht and Bergson raised the cry “Action not Pity!” Bergson and Hecht rallied activist stars like Paul Muni and Edward G. Robinson for public pageants that drew thousands of attendees. The history is freshly presented. Richard Trank’s documentary contrasts Bergson’s life with the personal histories of survivors and those who were destroyed. Anne Frank’s family was among those officially denied entry to the United States unless they could find an American consulate in Switzerland or Portugal, which of course meant illegally crossing Occupied Europe. From Against the Tide, one gets the impression that anti-Semitism was the main reason for American isolationism. There was a riot of Jewhatred in prewar America. But there were other parties—from pacifists to Communists—who wanted no part of a second European war. Bergson’s inconveniencing of the comfortable is fondly remembered. The film’s upbeat ending takes place in modern-day Israel. Children parade in the streets of Jerusalem, and the descendents of Holocaust survivors raise their voices against the killings in Darfur. It’s a strange angle to take on Israel today. Against the Tide lambastes those who keep silent, yet the plight of the Palestinians left out of this happy picture speaks rather loudly. Richard von Busack AGAINST THE TIDE (Unrated), a documentary by Richard Trank, plays March 26 at 7pm at Camera 7 in Campbell. Trank and Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, will talk. See www.svjff.org or call 800.838.3006.

Agents of Change San Jose’s Monkey have a message for a new era By Steve Palopoli

B THE SKA’S THE LIMIT Dvsujt!Nfbdibn! mfbet!uif!Npolfz! sfobjttbodf/

ARACK OBAMA: the ska president? That’s what it seems like to Curtis Meacham, guitarist, vocalist and head songwriter for San Jose’s longtime ska band Monkey. In the final days of the Bush administration, he explains, the music’s popularity was at an all-time low. “We’ve been through some pretty rough times, where people just expressed their desire to either not be in the band or to not continually beat themselves about the head trying to play music it appeared that no one liked,” says Meacham. “I said, ‘You’re going to feel like that for a while. But keep in mind, if you just stay in the band long enough to see a different president come in, you’re going to see a totally different reaction.’ And it’s absolutely true.” Monkey was booked on the Ska is Dead 4 tour, which happened to start the day after Obama’s inauguration. “We showed up, and houses were packed and sold out on Mondays,” he says.

Meacham sees this administration as a time of renaissance for the arts, and for the upbeat, party-in-the-face-ofapocalypse vibe of ska music. “The only way you can control people is to remind them that there’s something to fear. Just keep reminding them. The Obama administration comes in he goes, ‘Well, this isn’t about fear, this is about change. This is about hope.’ Everything he does is reminding people, ‘Hey, there’s a lot of crap out there, and we’re dealing with it. But while we’re dealing with it, go out and enjoy yourself. Have a beer.’” Suddenly, Monkey finds itself firmly back within the zeitgeist. Their new album Lost at Sea, for which WORKS/San Jose Gallery is hosting an all-ages CD release party Saturday (March 28) is full of many of the same messages that have defined the rise of the Obama era. The title song sets up a backdrop of confusion and uncertainty, but ends with the lines “If we keep on trying, we’re going to make this world

a better place for man.” “It’s funny, because I wrote that about two years before Obama came in and really started pushing to be president,” says Meacham. “When I heard him, I thought, This is what I wrote about. Humans think alike. When everyone’s miserable, there’s only one thing that people want, they want change. They don’t know how, but they want change. I felt like I finally got the energy right.” Things have changed remarkably for Monkey, which when Meacham started it almost 14 years ago was the only traditional ska band in the Bay Area. In that time, they had previously released only three albums. Now, suddenly, they are experiencing a renaissance of their own. Lost at Sea is being released on Mike Park’s esteemed Asian Man label, with fantastic production that brings out every hook and horn line, and a perfectfit package, right down to the artwork by the Aquabats’ Parker Jacobs. But when the band was in the studio this time, it ended up

recording 26 songs, so a second album on a different label is slated to arrive later this year. And the group is already working on a third album on top of that, meaning that within a year’s time it’s possible Monkey will have doubled the output it took it over a decade to deliver. Why the creative boom? Trumpeter Brian Lockrem thinks that, somewhat ironically, it’s stability and not change that is pushing the band to a new level. “I just think that after many years of searching, Curtis has found more a family than a band,” says Lockrem. “This band has been together almost 14 years. I’m the 40th horn player, and there are two more after me. The dude’s been searching forever, and finally we’ve just clicked. I don’t think there are any words that could honestly describe what there is in this band, because it doesn’t exist in any other band we’ve come across.” That helps not just on the level of general camaraderie, but in the *+

writing process, since Meacham tends to bring in a skeleton of an idea, which the band then ďŹ&#x201A;eshes out together. Everyone in the band is on the same wavelength. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he comes in with an idea for a song, I generally agree with the message and the point that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to get across. So I can pour everything that I have into that song, as can our sax player, as can our trombone player,â&#x20AC;? says Lockrem. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in the band ďŹ ve years now; this lineup has been together about four years as a whole. And how could he resist Meachamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pickup line?

Want to come play?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The ska community in Silicon Valley is still pretty smallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Firme plays some, but is mostly rock en espanol. Trouble in Paradise is a younger ska band that plays a more third-wave sound. And there are always Sublime clones to be found.

You make noises about “authentic living,” which sounds like one of those really cheesy regional magazines, but I think you mean living so what you do matches what you say you believe. Yet, here you are, somebody who demands fidelity, then gets together with Mr. Zipper Issues. You worry he’s been unethical—and what’s a girl to do but violate his privacy in hopes of finding out? And then, upon discovering the guy had his hand in the booty jar, you did what any rational, fidelity-favoring girlfriend would: said absolutely nothing—unless you count “Sign here, Honey!” as you went in with him to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars on a house. Some people are happiest knowing the whole truth—except for any parts that would keep them from being able to live a nice comfortable lie. In France, they have the “cinq à sept”—the five to seven—slang for a time between work and dinner when people sneak off to see their lover. Sure, it goes against the way things are supposed to be, but it works for some—the person gets what they’re not getting at home,

but without breaking up their home. Something similar goes on over here when the mob guy’s wife asks, “Hi, Honey, what did you do at the office today?” The last thing she wants is the truth: “Oh, paperwork, some sales calls, then garrotted a guy and stuffed him in an oil drum.” If you actually want to live authentically, emulate your boyfriend. He’s a cheater who cheats. A sneaky person who sneaks. You, on the other hand, can’t figure out whether you’re CIA or C No Evil. You can’t be both. While you can probably get him to reassure you that this won’t happen again, his past suggests he’ll be as faithful as the opportunities that don’t present themselves. The fact you’re with him suggests that, even more than a man who doesn’t cheat, what you want is a man, period. Women in this position try to make peace with it by looking the other way as long as the guy’s giving them what they need in time, attention, and energy. You could try that, but I’m guessing you’ll always be looking at him a little askance— like when there’s a sparkle in his eye. A tear at the sight of your beautiful baby girl? Or is it literally a sparkle . . . from that 21year-old cocktail waitress with all the body glitter?

Bn[g^ZcYhVcY>lZgZYZWVi^c\l]Zi]Zg^iÉhV\ddY^YZVidignidXjYYaZl^i]V\jnV[iZgV]dd`je# >ValVnhlVciid!Wji>ldggn>Éb\d^c\id[gZV`i]Z\jndji#>hheddc^c\dgl]ViZkZgVaac^\]ibdgZ ^ci^bViZi]VchZm4Idd^ci^bViZ4ÅHcj\\aZldgb What do you mean, “try” to cuddle? Chase after the guy and try to spoon him as he’s running for the door? (The more deadbolts you have, the longer the afterglow.) While a snuggle doesn’t seem a lot to ask of somebody you’ve just done unspeakable stuff with for hours, you shouldn’t expect relationshiptype service from a near-stranger. You can nuzzle up to the guy, or wait till he’s asleep and drape his arm around you. But, if you

really need to cuddle after sex, and you’re not ready for a relationship, your best bet is setting yourself up with a regular booty call. If you get really, really desperate, you could go to this appalling thing called a “cuddle party” (cuddleparty.com) where strangers in pajamas roll around on the floor hugging each other in hopes of “getting their touch needs met.” Personally, I’d rather hug a toilet—while throwing up into it.

MARCH 25-31, 2009 M E T R O S I L I C O N VA L L E Y

btuspmphz

ROB BREZSNY

xffl!pg!nbsdi!36 xxx/gsffxjmmbtuspmphz/dpn

6g^Zh(March 21–April 19): Don’t you think it’s

time you toned down your manic aspirations? Aren’t you curious about the sweet, sensitive success that could be yours if only you got really calm and peaceful? Wouldn’t it be interesting to explore the more manageable opportunities that might become available by accepting your limitations with humble equanimity? APRIL FOOL! Don’t you dare do any of those things, Aries. Your spiritual duty for the foreseeable future is to be a brave initiator of ingenious experiments . . . a high-powered self-starter who competes primarily with yourself . . . a pioneering warrior who’s in quest of transcendent exploits that make it unnecessary to go to war.

IVjgjh(April 20–May 20): As you enter testing time, I may be the only astrologer who has enough tough love to wake up your inner teacher, ensuring that you’ll get the expert help you need. And I may be the only psychic healer who can polish your aura and help you dispose of the karmic gunk that has been gumming up your luck. APRIL FOOL! I’m powerful, but not that powerful. My job is to alert you to the work that must be done so that you can do the work yourself. P.S. For best results, blame no one for any sadness you may feel, and take full responsibility for creating your own happiness. <Zb^c^(May 21–June 20): Please do not snort meth in a hot-air balloon with fake Peruvian shamans as you fly to a secret CIA fortress where you put on a mask and play strip poker with highranking members of the conspiracy to create one world government. APRIL FOOL! There’s no way you’ll be invited to a whacked-out spectacle like that. Your wildness does in fact need expression, but it will be perfectly satisfied with less whackedout adventures that are healthy for you and leave no messes in their wake. Monitor yourself for any urges you may feel to seek out over-the-top melodramas. 8VcXZg( June 21–July 22): So many miraculous images of Jesus have been appearing in Cheetos corn chips lately that a new cult of “Cheesus” worshipers has sprung up. I suggest you consider the possibility of joining them. This is a favorable time to switch your religious affiliation to a faith that puts great stock in goofy miracles. APRIL FOOL! I lied, sort of. There’s really no mandate for you to become a Cheesus Freak. But it is a fine time to add tender irreverence and fun-loving funkiness to your spiritual aspirations. AZd( July 23–Aug. 22): I have a message for the

city of Los Angeles, regarded by most astrologers as a Leo: It would be wise to accept the offer of tequila manufacturer Jose Cuervo, which has offered to pay a handsome sum for the right to put its advertising sign beneath the huge Hollywood sign in the Hollywood Hills. APRIL FOOL! This is a bad time for all Leos, including L.A. and you, to sell their souls. In fact, the universe is conspiring to bring you practical rewards for simply being your beautiful self. I suggest you proceed according to the hypothesis that radiating your highest integrity is the finest form of self-promotion.

K^g\d(Aug. 23–Sept. 22): This is an ideal time to have sessions with a sex therapist so as to get to the root of any inhibitions that might be preventing you from claiming your full measure of orgasmic enlightenment. APRIL FOOL! While this is a fantastic time to deepen your access to the spiritual gifts of erotic bliss, you won’t need a therapist to accomplish it. Here’s all you really require: (1.) a fantasy of making love with an inscrutable deity who has four arms, the better to hug you with; (2.) a pretend aphrodisiac made from the peaches of immortality that you’ll steal from the tree of life in your dream tonight; (3.) an invisible sex toy that you create in your mind’s eye while you’re meditating about the most sublime situation you’ve ever been in. A^WgV(Sept. 23–Oct. 22): Maybe someday you will allow yourself to act more like an Aries. You know, you’ll barge ahead along a path of your own making. You’ll follow the siren call of your good instincts instead of the waffling questions of your fine mind. You’ll relish the scary sounds from up ahead as potential opportunities to triumph over your fear and hone your willpower. Don’t do any of that stuff yet, though. You’re not ready for the challenge. Maybe in a few years. APRIL FOOL!

Here’s the truth, Libra: Now is an excellent time to act more like an Aries.

HXdge^d(Oct. 23–Nov. 21): Sometime in the next

week, the spirits of Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, John the Baptist, and Jean-Paul Sartre will come to you in a vision to tell you how to prosper during the coming Great Depression. With their expert tips you will spend the years 2010–2013 safe and sound and well-fed in a gated community while millions of your fellow humans are rioting in the streets over scraps of food. APRIL FOOL! Everything I just said is a lie. The more modest truth is that you now have access to great insight about how to increase your long-term stability and security. Take advantage!

HV\^iiVg^jh(Nov. 22–Dec. 21): In a letter to

Santa Claus last December, a child from Seattle wrote, “Dear Santa, Can you give me a very special superpower? What I want is to be able to make up songs everywhere I go, and not have to work so hard to think of things to say to people because a fresh, beautiful song will magically pour out of my mouth for all occasions.” I’m happy to announce that if this child is a Sagittarius, his or her wish could soon come true. APRIL FOOL! What I just said is not a literal reality. But it may have metaphorical value. The truth is, many of you Sagittarians will be very fluid and imaginative in the coming weeks. You may be able to create pretty much anything you put your mind to.

8Veg^Xdgc(Dec. 22–Jan. 19): I’m definitely not

encouraging you to go to YouTube and watch the music video of the hamster eating popcorn on a piano. You’ve got more important things to do, and shouldn’t waste your time on trivial diversions. So get down to business! Commit your whole being to the crucial work you have ahead of you! Don’t waver from your laser-focused intention! APRIL FOOL! The truth is that if you want to succeed in the coming days, you will have to stay loose, indulge in at least a few blithe diversions, and not be a stern taskmaster demanding perfection. So go watch the hamster. It’s at tinyurl.com/agywon.

6fjVg^jh( Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Nothing but great

news for you as far as the eye can see, Aquarius. You’re much more likely than usual to win a contest and be told you’re hot and find loose money on the sidewalk. I bet you’ll also get an invitation that you never imagined possible and an offer to have a conversation with a person you admire. Nor would I be surprised if you finally garner a certain form of recognition you’ve been pining for, get a message that will change your life in a sweet way, and discover a brand new trick for experiencing pleasure. APRIL FOOL! I was exaggerating. Maybe one or two of those wonderful things will happen (at most, three), but not all of them. Don’t be greedy.

E^hXZh(Feb. 19–March 20): I predict that

sometime soon you will time-travel to 2012 and then return to the present. While on your journey, you’ll learn the outcome of three major sports events that will happen between now and then. This knowledge will eventually help you win large bets that earn you millions of dollars. APRIL FOOL! I lied. You won’t literally engage in time travel, and you won’t get access to valuable sports scores. I bet you will, however, take a semi-magical excursion into the future via a vivid dream or meditative vision, where you’ll get a clear idea of what would ultimately work and not work about your current experiments in happiness.

What makes you think airship piloting is fictitious? You think those are monkeys flying the Goodyear blimp? In fact an entire federal department, the Federal Aviation Administration, is charged with making sure airships and other airborne craft are operated by qualified personnel, as opposed to, no offense, a bunch of drunks. If you still want to do this once you sober up, here’s how. For technical consultation I turned to a longtime Straight Dope reader and private pilot who calls herself Broomstick. She pointed out that according to federal regulations you don’t need a pilot’s license to build or fly an aircraft that (a) is made for one occupant, (b) carries no more than 5 gallons of fuel, (c) can’t go faster than 55 knots in level flight, and (d) has an empty weight of 254 pounds or less. There are a few other restrictions: day operation only, no flights over congested areas or crowds, etc. You don’t even need flying lessons, although I’d advise against going aloft with no clue at all. Without too much prep work, therefore, you could maybe get away with flying a Larry Walters–style lawn-chair-and-weather-balloons rig out in the middle of nowhere. (Southern Los Angeles, in case you’re thinking about recreating Larry’s flight path, doesn’t qualify as the middle of nowhere.) But that’s probably dinkier than what you had in mind. So we escalate. To pilot a real airship you’re going to need some certification, such as a sport pilot license with a “lighter-than-air category rating with an airship class rating.” In addition to basic pilot training (i.e., in flying a plane), this requires about 20 hours of airship flight training, with three hours as pilot in command. It’s technically possible to get a sport pilot license for airships only, but good luck finding an airship instructor willing to take on someone with no pilot certification and most likely no flight experience. However you swing it, the license lets you fly during the day with one passenger aboard. Alternatively you could get a private pilot license for airships, which is similar to the sport pilot license but requires more training and skills. You’d need to fulfill the same basic requirements as pilots of fixed-wing aircraft, which include medical certification. But maybe you won’t be happy with

anything short of flying the 192-foot Goodyear blimp. Now you need a commercial pilot certificate, and that’s going to be a project. I won’t list all the necessary qualifications, but you’re looking at 200 hours of total flight time, including 30 as pilot in command, 40 of instrument flight time, and five of night visual flight time. Again, it’s possible to start with no flying experience and work your way up to hovering over football stadiums strictly by flying airships, but it’s unlikely. For one thing, there aren’t a lot of schools that teach commercial airship flying, and those outfits that do are free to set high standards for applicants. Goodyear, which runs its own program, says it’s only interested in licensed fixed-wing pilots with commercial instrument and multi-engine ratings. I’ll wager this isn’t what you wanted to hear, but Broomstick thinks the easiest route to airship captaincy is getting a fixed-wing pilot’s license, then adding airship certification later. Now: getting hold of an airship to fly. We tried calling Goodyear about blimp rental, but they repeatedly blew us off—too many yo-yos drunk-dialing at 2am, probably. However, we found a place called Airship Ventures near San Francisco that will rent you an honest-to-Jesus 246-foot-long Zeppelin NT for $5,750 per hour including crew. If you want to do a little piloting, they offer a day-long program that includes ground school and some stick time starting at $3,500—but you need your private pilot’s license first. Full-on pilot certification for the NT (includes extensive training plus trips to Germany for simulator work and such) will cost about $100,000 in fees and expenses. Finally, to buy your own Zeppelin-brand zeppelin and associated ground systems, figure you’ll be out about €12 million, or roughly $15 million. OK, maybe you could get one for a tad less in this economy, but face it, kids—with that money you could buy a lot of beer.
