Beauty of Bev The author omitted any comparison regarding the maintenance cost of an ICE car vs. a BEV car (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clean Dreams,â&#x20AC;? MetroNews, April 8). It is the same reason that hybrid cars make little sense in the long run because you are still dragging along all of the moving parts of the ICE, which cost a great

deal over the life of the car to maintain. The BEV, on the other hand, has one moving part and has very limited maintenance costs. Yes, batteries are still the limiting factor in making a BEV that ďŹ ts every travel need, but remarkably, they will satisfy the great majority of the daily driving now, and longer trips will possible within a few years.

the avian ďŹ&#x201A;u of a decade ago, the Hong Kong ďŹ&#x201A;u of 1968, and the Asian ďŹ&#x201A;u of 1957, swine ďŹ&#x201A;u has been traced to animal waste in a factory farm. Its H1N1 type virus is nearly identical to that of the Spanish ďŹ&#x201A;u, which killed more than 50 million people in 1918â&#x20AC;&#x201C;19. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s factory farms constantly expose sick, crowded, highly stressed animals to contaminated feces, urine, and other secretions. They provide ideal breeding grounds for the replication and mutation of viruses and bacteria into more lethal forms. In fact, Wikipedia lists more than 70 human diseases that are developed and transmitted by animals, frequently through conďŹ nement and crowding. Among these are such infamous killers as AIDS, bubonic plague, cholera, diphtheria, Ebola and dengue fever, measles, SARS, smallpox, West Nile virus, and yellow fever. Every one of us can help prevent the development and spread of these killer diseases by replacing animal products in our diet with healthful vegetables, fresh fruits, and whole grains. These foods donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry deadly microbes (unless contaminated by animal waste), are touted by every major health advocacy organization and were the recommended fare in the Garden of Eden. Larry Rogawitz, Santa Rosa

Short and Sweet Right on! Well said. (Re â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dog and Your Dinner,â&#x20AC;? Silicon Veggie, May 6) Frank De Giacomo. Honolulu, Hawaii

Ashes to Ashes In your review of Little Ashes, May 6: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cenicitasâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little Ashesâ&#x20AC;? is a Dali painting not a Lorca poem. A little research goes a long way. Lisa Karaganis San Antonio, Texas A little research indeed goes a long way. Fortunately, the movie gave me a crib because Lorca was reciting a poem with that phrase â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;little ashesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; just before the titles. Whether or not Dali named the painting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little Ashes,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; saying that the movie is named after a Lorca poem is still accurate. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Richard von Busack

To High Heaven Well, Campos might be innocent, but the whole thing sure stinks to high heaven (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Accusing the Accuser,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Fly, May 6). Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the accused have a right to confront the accuser? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad this bogus complaint was â&#x20AC;&#x153;brushed aside.â&#x20AC;? This just sounds like political sour grapes from Campos. Hugh Jardonn San Jose

Sudden motion caught my eye, as I looked past you and through the window in front of which you were posing with your latte. You looked up and assumed that I was staring at you, you who I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even notice until that brief awkward moment. You turned to your gaggle of girlfriends, pointing and sneering, and now the whole lot of you glare and glower at me every time you enter said coffee shop. Sheesh girl, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not that cute. As a matter of fact, you look boring and common with the stock-issue two-tone hair and Ugs being modeled by hordes of your ilk. Please stop harassing me and take a look in the mirror. If you keep sneering like that, then your face might get stuck that way. Oh wait, it already is. Nevermind.

Music Matters

S YOU READ this, downtown San Jose is in the throngs of a new enterprise called Left Coast Live. This is, perhaps, the purest example of what happens when a bunch of people, instead of sitting around and complaining, actually stand up and do something. The entire scenario is exciting for several reasons. The timing rocks, especially since San Jose just passed up the 1 million mark and still doesn’t have a reasonable nightlife comparable to other cities with half its population. Also, because of another enterprise called San Jose Rocks, there is an ever-growing interest in local rock history from the ’60s and ’70s, and according to local legend Gordon Stevens, there was a serious, equally important, Latin scene out on the East Side during the ’60s as well—something hardly anyone talks about or even remembers. Furthermore, festivals are something San Jose usually does well, especially the Jazz Festival, which just a few years ago began incorporating a club crawl so attendees could check out some live bands in the clubs, as opposed to immediately returning back home after the day’s events. Lastly, many people from my era who grew up driving to San Francisco or the East Bay to see shows, since there was absolutely nothing to do in San Jose for those under 21 until the Cactus Club opened. Remember how bloody fun it was when that club, along with Marsugi’s, Ajax and F/X, started a live-music scene on South First Street? You had businessmen in suits hanging out right next to people with Mohawks. The folks behind Left Coast Live keep using phrases like “Bring live music back to San Jose” or “Rebirth live music in San Jose,” so they definitely know that live music at least used to be on a lot of people’s radar. With luck, such a mind-set will return, and someday we might actually see club owners who want to contribute to the cultural landscape and/or landlords who actually care about the community rather than knowingly renting to troublesome clubs just to make a quick buck. But getting back to the concept of a Latin scene in the ’60s, last week a press conference was held for the San Jose Mariachi and Mexican Heritage Festival. It took place in the Fairmont. Linda Ronstadt still holds court as the festival’s artistic director, and for this year’s incarnation, she brought in Carlos Santana, who will perform in a huge tribute gig for Cesar Chavez this coming Sept. 20–27, so he himself actually showed up to the press conference and had quite a bit of inspiring and provocative things to say. The timing rocks, When asked how or why he since San Jose just originally migrated from mariachi passed up the 1 million to rock music, he said that when attending a picnic in San Jose in 1962, mark and still doesn’t he heard mariachi music coming have a reasonable from one part of the landscape and nightlife comparable rock music from another part. “When to other cities taking in the aerial view, I just grabbed all of it,” he recalled. He added that San Jose has the capacity for being grand central for Latin rock & roll, and that “We should celebrate Cesar Chavez day nationally, not just in California.” And this one: “Everybody is born an angel with wings of imagination and willingness. Some people may even be chickens or turkeys—especially if you wake up automatically thinking someone’s going to mess with you. I choose to wake up, and wake everyone up with vibration and sound.” Santana then went on to repeatedly bash Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, calling them the “exterminators of education, while referring to Ronstadt and himself as the “weapons of mass compassion.” Finally, he philosophized that for musicians, the goal is to be eternally relevant. “Someone can be ahead of his time, but a month later, he could be passé,” said Santana. “I invite all musicians to wake up and be eternally relevant.” Send your tips to SiliconAlleys@metronews.com

COLOR US confused: Hollywood gossip Perez Hilton, a.k.a. Mario Lavandeira, the queen of the knockoff disguised as parody. So why is he suing PerezRevenge to get it to change its name? Lavandeira has won a case against PerezRevenge, a gossip site that styles itself as an antidote to Hiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;meanness.â&#x20AC;? U.S. District Court Judge Gary Feess has SELF-HATER?!!Qfsf{!IjmupoĂ&#x2013;t!mfhbm! ordered the blogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners, Margie Rogers wjdupsz!tffnt!up!tipx!uibu!ijt!wfsz! and Elizabeth Silver-Fagan, to stop using fyjtufodf!wjpmbuft!V/T/!dpqzsjhiu!mbx/! the PerezRevenge name, turn over the site to Hilton and desist from â&#x20AC;&#x153;using the term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Perezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to designate any platform, medium, and/or website that contains entertainment or celebrity news or gossip.â&#x20AC;? Which is laughable, when you think about how Hilton got his start. He ďŹ rst blogged on a site called PageSixSixSix, until he got a nastygram from the New York Post, which objected to his free-riding on the name of its famous gossip column. Lavandeira then came up with his play on the name of the famous hotel heiress, and became Perez Hilton. He also routinely doctors celebrity photos, arguing that sprinkling cocaine dots on them is a transformative use, entitling him to publish them. A couple years ago, several photo agencies disagreed and slapped him with lawsuits. Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all fun and fair. It seems like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just upset that someone else has joined in on the game. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Owen Thomas, valleywag.gawker.com 8VcVeVgdYnd[VeVgdYnh^iZZm^hidgYdZh^iXVcXZa^ihZa[djiVcY_jhiWZXdbZgZVa^in4 I]^h^h]ZVkn!>Ă&#x2030;kZ\diid\dh^iYdlc#Ă&#x2026;YZeVgYdd :kZgndcZ]VYhdbZdcZa^`ZEZgZo=^aidcVii]Z^g]^\]hX]dda!Wni]Vi>bZVci]Z[Vi! \dhh^enfjZZcl]dgZVaan_jhilVciZYidWZdcZi]ZedejaVg`^YhWji]VYidhZiiaZ[dgiZVg^c\i]Zb YdlcWZ]^cYi]Z^gWVX`h#Ă&#x2026;=^gZY<ddch >YdcĂ&#x2030;ilVciidhdjcYa^`Z!gjYZ!Wji>Ă&#x2030;Ya^`ZWZVii]Zh]^idjid[i]^hYdjX]ZWV\Ă&#x2026;i]Zc heg^c`aZbncjihdc]^h[VXZVcYiV`ZVe^XijgZ#Ă&#x2026;8dYZT7ajZT7Vaao I]ZldghibdbZci^cedeXjaijgZ]^hidgnXVbZZVga^Zgi]^hnZVgdci]Z8ZaZWg^in 6eegZci^XZl]Zc9dcVaYIgjbelVh[dgXZYid^cigdYjXZEZgZo=^aidcVhĂ&#x2020;I]ZaZVY^c\VcYbdhi edejaVgWad\\Zg^ci]Z]^hidgnd[I]Z>ciZgcZih#Ă&#x2021;Ă&#x2026;adWhig >ldcYZg^[i]Z=^aidc]diZaX]V^cXdjaYhjZ]^b[dgigVYZbVg`^c[g^c\ZbZci# BVg^dAVkVcYZg^V^hVcVgX^hh^hi^XhdX^deVi]#Ă&#x2026;H]VciV@ZeeaZ >ccZlhi]VigZaViZYidi]ZgZaViZYcZlh!=^aidc=diZahVcYEZgZo=^aidc_jhiVccdjcXZY V_d^cikZcijgZiddeZcVX]V^cd[]diZahWgVcYZYĂ&#x2020;EZgZo=^aidc=^aidc#Ă&#x2021;I]Z]diZahl^aaXdbW^cZ\aVb [jgc^h]^c\hVcYlVaah^oZZbWVggVhh^c\e]didhdgedejaVgXZaZWh#Ă&#x2026;CZgooaZ^ci]ZKZgooaZ

Desperate Measures On Tuesday, May 19, voters will be asked to do what their elected leaders could not By Jessica Lussenhop

P

OOR, POOR special election propositions. So unpopular, even the proponents are endorsing the measures in a hangdog, best-of-abad-situation kind of way. “Look, I think the public has a right to be both frustrated and angry about these six measures,” says Sen. Joe Simitian, who supports all six. “But that being said, there’s only one question: Are we as a state better off if

they pass or fail? Yay or nay? In a better world, it would not come down to this.” As May 19 draws nigh, and five of the six ballot proposals continue to poll poorly, it seems only logical to be asking, what happens if they fail? First off, says California Budget Project director Jean Ross, things have changed quite a bit since this February deal was put together. “They’re implying if the

ballot measures pass, we won’t have a problem—wrong,” she says. “The gap is going to grow regardless. Even if all the budget measures are approved.” The projected deficit has been yawning slowly back open as tax revenues trickle in even lower than anticipated in February’s budget. The damage for next fiscal year has been estimated by the Legislative Analyst’s Office to be more than $8 billion.

May 13–19, 2009 On Monday, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that it has now nearly doubled, to a staggering $15 billion. So, no matter what, it’s back to the drawing board. According to Ross, Props. 1A and 1B won’t have immediate consequences for this year’s budget but are seen by many to be the most important propositions, especially in terms of future tax revenue and education money and as a step toward calming the state’s budget volatility. The revenues that go away in two years without Prop. 1A will gouge holes out of the 2011–12 and 2012–13 budgets, says Assemblyman Bill Monning. Prop. 1C promises $5 billion in money borrowed against future lottery profits. Props. 1D and 1E would contribute a little less than $1 billion. If they fail, add that amount to the current projected shortfall. There is no party unanimity on the measures. Assemblyman Jim Beall, a member of the Budget Committee, says he supports Props. A, B, C and F. “It’s hard to ask for more sacrifices from Californians,” Beall says. “At the same time, many people are in need and they are seeking help from state services and visiting our public emergency rooms in droves.” The numbers are daunting, even to veteran lawmakers who have weathered earlier budget battles. “If these go down, they’re going to have to borrow and cut to get to $16 billion, which is . . . I can’t fathom it,” says former Budget Committee chairman John Laird. Monning warns that the amount could climb to $20 billion. “The stakes are high,” he says. “There’s kind of no Plan B.” But with a $15 billion shortfall already a foregone conclusion, someone ought to be formulating &'

a Plan B. “I would argue they ought to tell us today how they’re going to close that gap,” says Ross. “There’s a lot of talking behind closed doors, not a lot in public.”

Vote Yes—Or Else! The governor has mentioned a plan to cut $80.8 million from CalFire—right at the start of the fire season—if the propositions fail, and though that may appear to be an attempt to scare up some more votes for the propositions, huge cuts will certainly have to be made when the governor comes back with a revised budget sometime in late May or even into June.

‘The current twothirds requirement has allowed a small, hard-core group of lawmakers to stop the will of the majority and hold the budget hostage.’ —Assemblyman Jim Beall Monning says he and his fellow Democrats are already putting themselves through the paces of both an $8 billion and a $16 billion shortfall. “The Democratic caucus did a budget exercise a week and a half ago,” he

says. “We were able to capture some of it through mechanisms with the Department of Corrections [with] an early-release program. We looked at some revenue-neutral adjustments with a majority vote that could capture $3 [billion] to $4 billion in increased revenue.” This includes raising certain fees, like the vehicle license fee. Though the governor promised to block a budget passed by simple majority back in December, Monning says that, at the time, “he prudently didn’t criticize the majority vote as inherently illegal. I think he did that realizing he may have to accept a majority vote at some point.” Where the rest of that $8 billion or $16 billion or $20 billion is coming from is anybody’s guess at this point. With the failure of these propositions, Republicans and Democrats will once again have to lock horns in the same fight that has been going on for decades and getting worse each time around. “Unfortunately, the state of California has not been able to confront this problem,” Simitian says. “We’ve ducked and dodged, and now we’re out of time.” Beall gives voice to a sentiment that has been expressed for so long it now sounds like a pipe dream. “We have to allow the Legislature to adopt a budget with a majority, and eliminate the existing two-thirds majority requirement,” he says. “The current two-thirds requirement has allowed a small, hard-core group of lawmakers to stop the will of the majority and hold the budget hostage.” Meanwhile, Simitian says, Californians must hold their noses, grit their teeth and do what needs to be done. “When I was a kid,” he says, “my mother had an expression: ‘Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.’ That kind of sums it up. Nobody likes these measures. But if vote no, we’re going to have to deal with the consequences.” M

-TY 9NRJX UMMER seems to come earlier every year. Hollywood trots out its summer blockbusters long before the summer solstice. The beaches ďŹ ll up with sun worshippers after the last April showers. The big-name touring acts hit the road before school adjourns for the year. Are they all symptoms of global warming or just a barometer expressing out pent-up need to get out of the house and enjoy ourselves as soon as we set the clocks forward?

Several teams of movies split one good idea between them this summer '^7NHMFWI[TS'ZXFHP HE SUMMER movie market includes about 10 sequels. It would be hard labor to do the exact math, but two of them represent the battle of the dieoffs: Final Destination: Death Trip vs. H2, or Halloween 2 (Aug. 28). The conjunction is all part of 2009’s peculiar doppelgänger effect. First, we had Liev Schreiber re-creating his part as the bloodthirsty brother from Defiance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Then we were served a double order of Spocks in Star Trek (both of which are summer movies, even if they opened weeks in advance of June 21 or even the traditional Memorial Day weekend—all part of summer-season creep in the industry). If we were applying one of those irritating Facebook polls to this summer’s films, it would answer the question “What Shakespeare Play Are You?” with “One of those lesser mistakenidentity comedies with twins.”

Two toy-related movies seem to be doubles. On Aug. 7, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra tries to sell strangely Transformer-like supersoldiers in a market already anchored by the loftily titled Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (June 24). This spot is as good a place as any to mention Terminator Salvation (May 21), directed by McG, who has never made a good film in his life. Consider Terminator Salvation mentioned. Will Ferrell doubles up twice; he has a small part in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard (Aug. 14) as a salesman’s salesman; he also stars in Land of the Lost (June 5), the first of what threatens to become an inevitable chain of Sid and Marty Krofft cinematizations. Even better than a double is a triple helping of wacky dinosaurs: the aforementioned Land of the Lost as well as July 1’s Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and the dino skeleton in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian on May 22. The Time Traveler’s Wife has been steadily resisting adaptation, but now (Aug. 14) Audrey Niffenegger’s story is ready to go. Eric Bana plays the beaming-out, unstuck-in-time husband; Rachel McAdams is the left-behind wife; and the entirety will, we hope, be more like Portrait of Jennie than a bad episode of Time Tunnel. (500) Days of Summer (July 17) is also a story of random-access romance, with Zooey Deschanel teamed up with one of the best

young actors around, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Under Judd Apatow’s direction Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen play bosom buddies in Funny People (July 31) in what looks like a yuckster’s version of Brian’s Song, with Sandler dying offstage while he’s killing onstage. On a more deliberately serious note, repeat offender Nick (who keeps proving that the apple falls very far from the tree) Cassavetes’ My Sister’s Keeper (June 26) has him topping his heart-transplant-on-mysleeve movie John Q. Sofia Vassilieva, in bald leukemia wig, has a sister (Abigail Breslin) who gets literally and physically sick of being her sister’s bone-marrow cow. Even Nora Ephron’s Julie & Julia (Aug. 7) doubles Meryl Streep’s Julia Child with a reporter (Amy Adams) who has some sort of Persona-like obsession with the renowned chef. My Life in Ruins (June 5), the comeback vehicle for Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), flaunts Greek scenery in a story of a professor turned tour guide; it’s bound to be better than hanging out in Toronto, site of Vardalos’ tragically influential hit. Unfortunately, the Hawaiian tour guides in A Perfect Getaway (Aug. 14) aren’t selfdeprecating women of a certain age but, rather, serial killers. The one truly hard-to-resist double order this summer is a one-two punch of kraut-bashing. Brüno (July 10) has Sacha Baron Cohen as a faunlike and flamboyant Austrian fashion

reporter, romping through the world in his sportswear. In a cinema in which the homotease kills the audience like nothing else, we’ll get Brüno’s retrieval of one of the better jokes from the film version of Terry Southern’s The Magic Christian: a professional fighting match interrupted by male/male tongue wrestling, and an auditorium-size crowd sickened by the sight of no blood. Inglourious Basterds (Aug. 21), designed to drive proofreaders mad, might just be funnier in coming-attraction form as a Grindhouse extra than it will be as a whole movie. But this long-promised piece of Quentin Tarantino Dirty Dozen pastiche looks good/ridiculous. As a Southern commanding officer in the Big War, Brad Pitt demands 100 Nazi scalps each from each and every one of his commandos. And the film includes that scene every World War II movie needs but usually doesn’t have: Hitler flipping out and screaming, “Nein! Nein!” as he receives news of the Yank kill-squad’s rampage. (Oddly, Bruno Ganz refused to reprise his role as Nazi madman/YouTube meme.)

2NXHMNJK Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (July 15) promises the usual magic, spells and private-school mischief, with Jim Broadbent as Horace Slughorn. The Taking of Pelham 18

1 2 3 (June 12) is Tony Scott’s retake on a subway-heist movie of the grimy 1970s. July 1’s Public Enemies is Michael Mann’s John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) vs. Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) gangster movie. Shorts (Aug. 7) is a Robert Rodriguez fantasy about the transformation of a boring Black Falls, Texas, town by a kid’s imagination. It is indebted maybe to Jerome Bixby Jr.’s short story “It’s a Good Life,” only this time it’s supposed to be cute instead of horrifying. Lesser-known movies, in a line: O’Horten (May 22) a dry Scandinavian comedy about the retirement of a long-time railroad engineer. Edith Scob of Les yeux sans visage stars in the new Olivier Assayas, Summer Hours (May 22). Opening May 29, at last: The Brothers Bloom, starring Rachel Weisz; this is the long-postponed feature by Rian Johnson, the director of Brick, the best film of 2006. The new Woody Allen film, Whatever Works (June 19), has an indistinct title, just like his career-worst Anything Else. Still: Larry David shows up as Allen’s surrogate curmudgeon. The Hurt Locker (July 10) is Kathryn Bigelow’s study of the Iraq war bomb-disposal units. All Good Things (July 24) features Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst in a detective story by Andrew Jarecki (Capturing the Friedmans). Chris Columbus’ I Love You Beth Cooper (July 10) is a teen comedy about a class valedictorian’s date with the hottest girl in school (Hayden Panetierre). They Came From Upstairs (July 31) was once titled Aliens in the Attic, which says it all; so, unfortunately, does the presence of director John Schultz (Like Mike, The Honeymooners). District 9, an expansion of the short Alive in Joburg, is the South African–set smart version of Alien Nation (Aug. 14). Opening Aug. 21 is Post Grad, with Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel as an unemployed ex-student who has to move back in with her parents.

Among the summer’s horror films, Drag Me to Hell (May 29) looks like a champion. It retrieves Alison Lohman, a lovely and promising actress, from the movie jail where she’s been languishing since Where the Truth Lies. And the film positively reeks zeitgeist: it’s an important commentary on the mortgage meltdown and the inadvisability of evicting one-eyed Gypsies. The director is Sam Raimi, recalling his Evil Dead legacy. Among the animated features, the winner figures to be Up, a whimsical Pixar look at a senior explorer and his young stowaway on an epic balloon-powered journey. G-Force (July 24) presents a team of guineapig secret agents, but the previews look like an unsettling mix of early oughties slang (“Off the hook!”) with reference to 1960s secretagent movies. Expect your kid, if you have one, to ask, “Dad, what does ‘the Free World’ mean?’” Far more soulful is Ponyo (Aug. 14), Pixar’s John Lasseter bringing in the English version of Hiyao Miyazaki’s Ponyo on the Cliff with the story of a humanoid goldfish. Ever since reading John Dougan’s book The Who Sell Out, I have been amazed that no one has made a movie about England’s mid-1960s bout with pirate radio. Until now: The Boat That Rocked (Aug. 28), with Philip Seymour Hoffman as a laid-back yank DJ. Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral) directs. Like Radio London itself, it has a highly successful sound. Lorna’s Silence (Aug. 7) is by the Dardennes brothers, the tremendous Belgian neorealists who made The Son and Rosetta; surrounded by a summer chock-full of robots blowing up, the Dardennes’ moral seriousness and intelligence are only going to look better. The Proposal (June 19) has a Meet the Parents–style outline, but in the previews Sandra Bullock’s timing looks sharper than in her last few outings; also the steadily improving Ryan Reynolds seems to be picking

up his cues well in the trailer of this screwball comedy about a green-card marriage. Even unreleased, the worst films of summer already seem apparent. G.I. Joe is directed by Stephen Sommers of Van Helsing. Knowing that, no one gets to say, “I was hoping G.I. Joe would be good-bad,” unless they want to get what Rick James gave Eddie Murphy’s brother. Hint: What did the hand say to the face? Imagine That (June 12) has Eddie Murphy rebranding himself as kid-friendly (ketchup on the pancakes—precious!). The Noel Coward– based farrago Easy Virtue (May 29) looks like that bad little theater comedy you suddenly find yourself in, with people too big and old to move, sitting between you and the exit.

&QYJWSFYN[JX Still, if this summer’s films make you’ve think of stuff you’ve seen before—twice—there are nine weeks of free alfresco film in various downtown San Jose locations. This year’s Starlight Cinema program boasts favorites like Blazing Saddles, To Catch a Thief, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, A Streetcar Named Desire and Caddyshack.

The summer’s film fests include the Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival (May 16–20); a program of rare film noir at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco (May 14–28), among them 29 really unseen megrims from Monogram, Republic, Eagle-Lion and PRC. June 5–18, also at the Roxie, is the Another Hole in the Head Film Festival of independent and foreign horror. And the San Francisco Silent Film Festival (July 12–14) is an unmissable event. John Wayne, arguably the most popular film star in history, still continues to be celebrated at the South Bay’s most beautiful theater, the Stanford in Palo Alto. The retrospective includes the unmissable Rio Bravo (1959, shows May 22–24))—Wayne at his most well-rounded, under Howard Hawks’ direction. Some of Wayne’s war-time films are also offered up, including, just for the sake of argument, The Green Berets (May 29; guess the Hoover Institute will be empty that night). The minifest wraps with the elegiac double-bill of The Shootist and his late classic True Grit (June 5). The Coen brothers are proposing to remake True Grit; certainly the very good novel by Charles Portis is big enough to offer filmmakers a different angle. Which is a way of saying that there’ll never be another John Wayne.

Dane Cook HP Pavilion, May 31 America’s new favorite comedian Dane Cook is not without his faults—primarily his annoyingly happy-go-lucky, prance around the stage attitude—but there’s no denying the man’s popularity. Not every comedian has the ability to sell out entire arenas and sports complexes, let alone turn those cavernous places into one enormous sea of laughter. Cook’s startling success began when his website became a favorite cyberspace haunt for young males looking for a few laughs during their workday. After his second album, Retaliation, hit No. 4 on the Billboard comedy charts, HBO and Comedy Central pushed Cook into the prime-time spotlight, making a household name out of a seemingly average 30year-old with a sense of humor. And whether you fancy his shtick or instantly change the channel at his first sight, you have to admit, the dude can really make people laugh. (Garrett Wheeler)

Fleetwood Mac HP Pavilion, May 21 The interchanging lineup of Fleetwood Mac —a musical musical chairs of sorts—led the group down many paths, all of which ultimately resulted in it becoming one of the most celebrated pop-rock acts in the history of rock & roll. Aficionados of electric blues know that the original Fleetwood Mac was one of the most exciting psychedelic rock bands to emerge from the late-’60s blues explosion, if only for a fleeting moment; by the mid-’70s, mental illness had thwarted guitarists Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer from realizing their potential, and pianist Christine McVie began writing the majority of the band’s material. The result was a stark contrast from the group’s original direction, and when Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were added to the lineup in 1975, the new Fleetwood Mac was born. With only drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie left from the original lineup, the band took on a sound that has since become a staple in the soft-rock canon: the driving pop rock of “Go Your Own Way”, the slow balladry of “Rhiannon”, and midtempo keyboards of “Little Lies.” (Garrett Wheeler)

The Von Bondies The Blank Club, June 11

After a whirlwind month of shows in Europe and Canada, the Von Bondies’ first stop in the States is at San Jose’s very own Blank Club. Sounding like a cross between the Pixies and the Raconteurs, the Detroit-based group is best known for its 2004 hit “C’mon C’mon” from its sophomore album Pawn Shoppe Heart. Not only did the up-tempo track climb the Billboard charts, but it was chosen as the theme song to the television show Rescue Me, and later as the opening of MLB Network’s 30 Clubs in 30 Days. Currently the band is on tour supporting its fourth album, Love Hate and Then There’s You. The Audrey Sessions open. (Andrea Frainier)

India.Arie

The Mountain Winery, June 11 The No. 1 asset of this Grammy Award– winning singer is, without a shadow of doubt, her sultry, sensual voice. India.Arie layers her voice over thoughtful lyrics and spiritual melodies. The singer’s 2001 debut, Acoustic Soul, garnered radio attention for its easy-to-listen-to songs and catchy hooks. Similar to Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, Arie boasts a lush sound that hovers between R&B and classic soul. Her fourth and latest album, Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics, stays true to the artist’s slow, soothing sound. (Andrea Frainier)

BFD Shoreline, June 6 I went to the very first BFD, back in 1994. Other than Green Day and Beck, there really wasn’t much reason to go, other than to say, “I went to the very first BFD, back in 1994,” which a mere 15 years later, I have finally done. Thanks Live 105! Seriously, though, that first year had the Knack headlining, a concept that still makes my head hurt just thinking about it. About half the Shoreline headed for the parking lot just in time to miss them—and these were people who had stuck around for a past-their-expirationdate Oingo Boingo (which pains me to say, since they were one of my favorite bands in the ’80s) and Rollins Band! Clearly, the station has a better grasp on their demographic now, as this year’s festival features headliners the Offspring (OK, so it’s still a little like 1994 at BFD), the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and 311. Also performing are Taking Back Sunday, Alkaline Trio, Glasvegas, the suddenly very hyped Airborne Toxic Event and the Limousines. Personally, I say don’t miss our home-grown smart-ass Stanford rapper MC Lars on the “Soundcheck” stage. (Steve Palopoli)

Slayer Shoreline, July 11 Here are my top five questions for Slayer: (1) Have they heard Atom & His Package’s “Hats Off to Halford,” in which he calls them “Nazi fucking pricks,” and if so, is “Supremist” off their last album some kind of answer to that? (2) Did they cry when they heard Tori Amos had done a cover of “Raining Blood”? (3) Was that atrocious cover of “Born to Be Wild” on the NASCAR album actually done by a different band called Slayer? (4) Was the blood they drenched themselves in at the end of the night on the Reign in Blood tours the actual blood of the foes they have crushed under their heels? (5) When they’re, like, shopping at Target, do they ever think about Satan and just sort of chuckle? And to prove the point, Marilyn Manson also performs. (Steve Palopoli)

No Doubt Shoreline, July 25 One of the unlikely heroes of the mid’90s ska resurgence (the whole thing was a bit unlikely, in retrospect) was Gwen Stefani and her band No Doubt. Originally formed by John Spence and Stefani’s older brother, Eric, No Doubt hit the SoCal party scene with a freewheeling confidence that quickly attracted legions of local fans. Signed by Interscope in 1991, No Doubt released its debut album to all but deaf ears, and its label bid adieu without a second thought. Perhaps spurred by Interscope’s lack of faith, the group set out to record on its own, independently releasing Beacon Street Collection. The album’s raw, punkinspired sound generated a buzz and convinced Interscope to renegotiate a deal, resulting in the release of Tragic Kingdom. One of the album’s singles, “Just a Girl,” appeared on MTV’s Buzz Bin, and by ’96 the album itself hit the Top 10. Now reunited after a five-year hiatus, No Doubt is back, kicking out the funk-tinged ska tunes that made it famous a decade ago. (Garrett Wheeler)

Ziggy Marley The Mountain Winery, Aug. 8 For more than two decades, Ziggy Marley has consistently proven he is more than just the son of the reggae legend, Bob Marley. Since his father’s passing in 1981, Ziggy has taken the positive (and politically charged) tones of his father’s music and made them his own. Ziggy effortlessly transitions from the sounds of dancehall music, to R&B and rootsreggae. His vocals (which can be easily mistaken for his father’s) well serve his laid-back, hypnotic songs.

Depeche Mode Shoreline, Aug. 12

All the recent rereleases of Depeche Mode’s albums feature long-ass makingof documentaries, and I’m slightly embarrassed to say I watched every single one. But hey, once we figured out the Cure’s Robert Smith was a drunk muppet and New Order’s Bernard Sumner was one boring fool, Depeche Mode was the last true mystery of the great ’80s alternative bands. How did they get from the bright and catchy pop of Speak & Spell to the dark and oversexed cutterfests Black Celebration and Music for the Masses, and then to the epic redemptive power of Violator—perhaps rock music’s most inappropriately named album? It’s a long story, as I can attest, and one that circles back on itself now that their new album Sounds of the Universe takes it all back around with drum machines and dated synths weaving through the sonic landscape.

Green Day HP Pavilion; Aug. 18 Why the hell is anyone surprised that Green Day keeps making interesting records? When American Idiot came out, critics acted like “Wow, this band can write something besides songs about masturbation!” Now, they’re doing it again with the band’s follow-up rock opera, 21st Century Breakdown. Oh my God, Billie Joe Armstrong is complicated! Perhaps some people just bought too much into the Snotty Punk Show the band enjoyed performing onstage. But really, NOFX does the same thing, and does anyone accuse them of being morons just because they act like morons? Of course not. This is punk rock, people! Daring to be stupid is part of the fun, unless you’re in Bad Religion, where fun of any kind is outlawed. The truth is, kids have known there was something special about Armstrong and Green Day since the Gilman Street days. And the other truth is that both American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown are different takes on the same mass-appeal blueprint that has always been the band’s superpower. They write great pop songs—that’s all there is to it. So let’s everybody stop acting shocked and just go and enjoy this band without worrying if they’re punk enough, political enough and blah blah blah. Hope you have the time of your life.

Buddy Guy Montalvo Arts Center, Aug. 15 Rock stars turn into dinosaurs if they keep on touring past their due date; but the same law of diminishing returns doesn’t affect blues stars. Now in his ’70s, Buddy Guy remains a formidable performer, equally and easily at home with rip-it-up express-train jams and slow, agonizing hymns to women found and lost. Born in Louisiana, Guy made the inevitable trek to Chicago in the late ’50s, where he received valuable tutelage from Muddy Waters himself. Guy’s innovative style and hyperbolic stage shows proved a bit too much for Chess Records; in 1968, he released A Man and the Blues on Vanguard, complete with psychedelic cover, in time to link him to the rock-blues movement of the era. That album contains Guy’s definitive version of “Sweet Little Angel,” a deeply felt number with keening vocals and piercing guitar. Eric Clapton once lavished praise on Guy. A 2004 appearance at a blues festival in Texas showed that Guy was even capable of reinvigorating the often comatose later Clapton (check it out on YouTube under “Sweet Home Chicago”). However, it must be said that, as great as he is, even Buddy Guy couldn’t make John Mayer look or sound hip. (Michael S. Gant)

VANS Warped Tour Shoreline, Aug. 20

NOFX have been looking for a little direction since their best album so far this century, the Bush-bitchslapping War on Errorism. On their newest, Coaster, they don’t have W to kick around anymore, so they come into the Obama era with more of a carpet-bombing approach, taking on the American dream with “We Called It America” (and a clip from Glengarry Glen Ross). Great song, but as angry protest it’s not up there with “The Idiots Are Taking Over” or “Don’t Call Me White.”

Pink Funhouse Tour

HP Pavilion, Sept. 17 Does anyone make better videos than Pink? Absolutely not, as she proved once again driving a lawn mower and wielding a chain saw for “So What.” That’s why just listening to her music isn’t fully fulfilling, even though, as the Cyndi Lauper of her generation, she makes the smartest and most interesting pop music coming out of the major-label hit factories these days. There’s something about her personalitydriven tirades that screams for the whole package, and she delivers live, from the street-punk-Madonna ambience to her whiplash smile. Whether the Pink we see raging onstage is “authentic” is almost beside the point— her shows are as much a pristinely produced and carefully executed circus as Britney’s. But would you rather have the 13-year-old girls of America listening to the pointlessly bitter drone of “Piece of Me,” or the clever and subversive “Stupid Girls”? Yeah, it’s no contest. And really, isn’t she the hottest weird-looking person you’ve ever seen? No matter how convincingly tough she is on “U and Ur Hand,” I’d still want to mess with her tonight. (Steve Palopoli)

Santa Cruz Blues Festival 100 Aptos Creek Road, Aptos. 831.479.9814.

Clearly, anger isn’t the order of the day, and mostly the band is back to spreading the boho gospel (pretty hilariously on “I Am an Alcoholic” and “First Call”) and religion-baiting. The highlight is Fat Mike’s confessional “My Orphan Year, ”which could have been as cheesy as “Cat’s In the Cradle” but winds up as NOFX’s most genuinely moving song (yeah, I realize the competition is probably, like, “She’s Nubs,” but still). Whatever, NOFX has always been more of a singles band, which really pays off live, where the “hits” from various eras all blend into one giant sing-along for hundreds of kids in white T-shirts (but please God, not baseball caps). They’re topping a Warped tour lineup that includes Less Than Jake, Silverstein, Thrice, Senses Fail, D.O.A., the Exploited and lots more. (Steve Palopoli)

Zeroing In INCE the 01SJ Global Biennial of Art on the Edge event only explodes every two years, something had to be done to fill in the gaps. During last year’s Biennial, the SubZERO Street festival took place all along South First Street, coinciding with South First Fridays and attracting a barrage of independent creative types. The organizers conjured up a perfect plan: During the years staggered in-between the Biennial, why not repeat the street festival element, so that the Biennial at least stays on everyone’s radar? Since the Biennial is called 01SJ, what better name for the street festival than SubZERO? The South First Fridays events are already rip-roaring times, especially during the summer months when an outdoor artists’ market livens up the parking lot outside Anno Domini. But with the next iteration of SubZERO set to go down on June 5, 6pm–midnight, everything will be taken to the next level. This time around, visitors will be able to testdrive a custom low-rider bike, try their hands at stop-motion, bear witness to urban yarn-bombing, travel back to the future for a ’90s look at cyberfashion, watch a little subversive TV, listen up for spontaneous acts of percussion and much more. Think of it as a mini Burning Man meets a cyber–Tapestry Arts Festival meets an underground hacker summit meets a subterranean high-tech kids playground meets a geeky peep show—all in the form of a one-night free street festival. Downtown San Jose is never this much fun, so come on down. The price is right.

Bikini Weather

UMMER weather sends sun lovers to the beach as surely as it drives swimsuit models down the runway. Following the rest of the season’s trends, this year’s swimwear emphasizes the bright, the bold and the ruffled. Veteran designers like K>I6B>C6and K>Mhave shown bandeau tops with gold embellishments. A ruffle running down the neckline adds an element of beach flirt. 6CC66C97DNoffers ruffled suits, such as their LDD9HID8@;G>AA76C9:6J7>@>C>, available at shopbop.com Beyond ruffles, metallic strokes and hanging baubles from the ends of a bikini make for eye-catching adornments. One example is ?J>8N8DJIJG:’s 7:68=7JII:G;AN76C9:6JDC:" E>:8:HL>BHJ>I, with its all-over print of fluttering gold butterflies. Stripes, a classic nautical-tinged look, have made their way back to swimwear collections this summer for designers like G:986GI:G!IG>C6IJG@and GDMN. Whether it’s stripes, paisley, tie-dye or a floral design, prints are a great way to make a suit stand out. H=DH=6CC6ÉHIJAJB ;ADG6A7DL7>@>C>offers some vivid florals that look good in and out of the pool. Swimsuits that have superbold colors are made to stand out, so look for splatterings of tropical yellows, grass greens, hot pinks, neon oranges and electric blues. It doesn’t matter whether the suit is just one bold color, or a whole bunch of hues put to use in a zany pattern—either way, the suit should have some pop. Alexis Mendoza

The pastries, chocolate treats and croissants beckon at Los Gatosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fleur de Cocoa By Stett Holbrook

LMOND croissant. Almond croissant. Almond croissant. Los Gatosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fleur de Cocoa is rightly known for its chocolate confections and pastries, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop thinking about the little pastry shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spectacular almond croissants. They are simply the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had. Unlike most versions of the sweet pastry, which are made with marzipan, pastry chef and owner Pascal Janvier makes his with a light cream ďŹ lling and then bakes them until they are brittle crisp at the edges and yet still light and ďŹ&#x201A;aky inside. They are sweet but not overly so. The abundance of butter makes them supernaturally crisp and rich. The croissants come in large ($3.75) and small ($2.75) sizes, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine why anyone would opt for a smaller serving of pure deliciousness. After inhaling one in the shop, I took a croissant home in hopes of extending my little pastry party until the next day. It was good but had lost a bit of the magic by the next morning. Like ripe peaches and meteor showers, the croissants are ďŹ&#x201A;eeting wonders best enjoyed at the peak of deliciousness soon after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pulled from Janvierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ovens. I discovered the superior croissants on my mission to explore Fleur de Cocoaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savory side as well as its

A

sweets. As I mentioned, Janvierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mastery of the chocolate arts is well known (he holds an advanced degree in chocolate and was twice named one of the 10 best pastry chefs in America by Chocolatier and Pastry Art and Design magazines), but he and his wife and business partner, Nicola, have succeeded in creating a classic French patisserie with the added appeal of a menu of cafe standards. The croque monsieur ($8.75 full, $5.25 half) is probably the best of the savory offerings. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see croque monsieurs much these days, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; too bad. When they are done as well as they are at Fleur de Cocoa, you will appreciate the simple genius of the open-face sandwich: sliced ham and creamy bĂŠchamel sauce on crusty bread topped with Gruyère cheese. The concoction is then broiled until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautifully browned and bubbly. The perfect accompaniment to the sandwich is a bowl of French onion soup ($6.55), and the cafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version is an exemplar of this bistro classic: a deep, savory broth loaded with wellcaramelized onions and crisp slices of bread gooey with tangy Gruyère cheese. My only complaint was the soup was less than hot. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small menu of specials on top of the display case that can be easy to miss. I only noticed it on a second visit and zeroed in on

the open-face artichoke and Brie sandwich ($7.20). It was good but not great. Less good is the ham and Brie sandwich ($7.20). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patterned after the minimalist Parisian sandwich, but I found it too barebones: unremarkable slices of pressed ham, Brie and a bit of mustard. The chewy baguette was good, though. More people have probably heard the B-52â&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quiche Lorraineâ&#x20AC;? than have actually enjoyed a proper wedge of the cafe standard. Fleur de Cocoa will ďŹ x that. The ham and Gruyère (OK, I love Gruyère; so what) egg pie is as thick as a metropolitan phone book and incredibly rich and custardy. The buttery crust, however, was a bit hard and dense. After my dutiful stroll through the savory side of the menu, I felt that I had earned something sweet. Janvier grew up in Normandy, the birthplace of the all-American apple pie. His tarte normande ($5.40) is an ode to northern France â&#x20AC;&#x201D;oven-caramelized Braeburn apples and vanilla bean custard baked in a light, puffed pastry crust. American apple pie just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare. As expected, Janvierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chocolate arsenal is formidable. The chocolate ĂŠclair ($4.40) is essential. Janvier created his own chocolate blend called â&#x20AC;&#x153;salango,â&#x20AC;? made from Ecuadorian cacao. He deploys the

stridently bittersweet, extra-dark chocolate to great effect in the eponymous â&#x20AC;&#x153;salangoâ&#x20AC;? minicake ($5.65), a chocolate bomb made from salango chocolate mousse and a light almond sponge cake. Janvierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature chocolate dessert is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ&#x201A;eur de cocoaâ&#x20AC;? minicake ($5.65), a chocolate explosion of bittersweet chocolate mousse and a dark-chocolate sponge cake thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been given a light dunking in Grand Marnier. This one will satisfy your chocolate ďŹ x for days. As good as the chocolate pastries are, my favorite chocolate creation is the hot chocolate ($3.50). It has a satiny, ridiculously creamy consistency; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much like drinking melted chocolate, only somehow better. With only six small tables, Fleur de Cocoa is mainly a takeout place. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a hangout for a well-coiffed gang of Los Gatos women who generally dominate the half-dozen tables. They can be hard to uproot, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let these bejeweled idlers intimate you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the community to rise up and break their grip on this Los Gatos gem. The good stuff extends well beyond the chocolate and should be enjoyed by all. Did I mention the almond croissants?

ALK ABOUT about great food and wine pairingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;7DCCN9DDC K>C:N6G9 and B6CG:H6restaurant have teamed up to open a new cafe in the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Santa Cruz tasting room. When Bonny Doon moved down the highway from its original location in Bonny Doon and opened in an industrial space on Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Side, it created one of the coolest wine-tasting rooms anywhere, with its sweeping, colored concrete bars, winebarrel tasting â&#x20AC;&#x153;pods,â&#x20AC;? fountain and eclectic artwork. In addition to the great lineup of wines, what made the tasting room unique Ebwje!Ljodi was the cafe within, which served small plates of savory and sweet food paired with select Bonny Doon wines. The cafe was a partnership with Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent Gabriella Cafe, which gets my vote for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best restaurant. But when chef Sean Baker left to pursue other things, Bonny Doon chief G6C96AA<G6=B had to ďŹ gure out what to do. In the end, he turned to his fellow West Side neighbor 96K>9@>C8=, chef and owner of famed Manresa restaurant in Los Gatos. Kinch will serve as consulting chef for the cafe and tapped former Manresa souschef Charlie Parker as executive chef. Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent posts were the Michelin two-star restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Ubuntu in Napa (which is headed by two Manresa alums Jeremy and Deanie Fox). The Bonny Doon Vineyard 8:AA6G9DDG86;:, as the restaurant is rather windily known, will serve lunch and dinner Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday from noon to 9pm starting May 16. The cafe will serve a menu of small-plate items as well as a three-course prix ďŹ xe menu served family-style for $28. Even without wine, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great deal. To accommodate the new cafe, larger communal tables will be added as well as a stove and new ventilation system. The prix ďŹ xe menu will change nightly. The opening-night menu will feature an artichoke, fennel and orange salad, warm faro with a fried egg, asparagus and pecorino cheese and a slice of lemon tart. Check out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming up on future nights here. www.bonnydoonvineyard.com/visit_us/. From the outside, the Grahm/Kinch partnership seems ideal. Both are iconoclasts in their own ďŹ elds, and both have embraced biodynamic agriculture in their pursuit of great food and wineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Grahm with biodynamically grown grapes and Kinch with biodynamically grown produce from Ben Lomond farm. Their partnership sounds like a great pairing to me. Stett Holbrook (Sholbrook@metronews.com)

Porkyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Revenge

T

HE FIRST THING I did when I heard about the possibility of a swine ďŹ&#x201A;u pandemic sweeping the globe was to start washing my hands a lot more. As much as I eat out and put weird food in my mouth, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I should have been doing already, and the ďŹ&#x201A;u scare was a good reminder that basic hygiene is an effective precaution. The second thing I did was to think about how the outbreak of the disease might at last usher in an uprising against factory hog farms as incubators of pig-to-human illness and antibody resistance. Instead of blaming Mexicans for spreading the ďŹ&#x201A;u bug, I thought, perhaps we should clamor for widespread reforms in the way we raise pigs and all livestock. In a column thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buzzing around the blogosphere, U.S. Humane Society director of public health and animal agriculture Dr. Michael Greger reports that research shows the genetic makeup of the swine ďŹ&#x201A;u virus is linked to strains of swine ďŹ&#x201A;u that emerged from U.S. hog factories in 1998. He says the ancestor to the current virus was facilitated by intensive conďŹ nement at hog farms and long-distance pig transport. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an except from Gregerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column on the Humane Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website (humanesociety .org): â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public health community has been warning about the risks posed by factory farms for years. More than ďŹ ve years ago, in 2003, the American Public Health Association, the largest and oldest association of public health professionals in the world, called for a moratorium on factory farming. In 2005, the United Nations urged that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;[g]overnments, local authorities and international agencies need to take a greatly increased role in combating the role of factory-farming,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which, they said, combined with live animal markets, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;provide ideal conditions for the [inďŹ&#x201A;uenza] virus to spread and mutate into a more dangerous form.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Last April, the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production released its ďŹ nal report. The prestigious, independent panel chaired by a former Kansas governor and including a former U.S. secretary of agriculture, former assistant surgeon general and the dean of the University of Iowa College of Public Health, concluded that industrialized animal agriculture posed â&#x20AC;&#x153;unacceptableâ&#x20AC;? public health risks: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to the large numbers of animals housed in close quarters in typical [industrial farm animal production] facilities there are many opportunities for animals to be infected by several strains of pathogens, leading to increased chance for a strain to emerge that can infect and spread in humans.â&#x20AC;? Swine ďŹ&#x201A;u isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only threat posed by crowded hog farms. According to an article last year in the peer-reviewed journal Medical Clinics of North America, antibiotics in livestock feed were â&#x20AC;&#x153;a major componentâ&#x20AC;? in the rise in antibiotic resistance. One the nastiest manifestations of antibiotic resistance is a drug-resistant staph infection called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA for short. The infection kills more than 18,000 Americans annually. As detailed by Nicholas Kristof in his March 14 column in The New York Times, a new MRSA strain called ST398 is emerging and seems to ďŹ nd root in large hog farms. He cites research that suggests 25 percent to 39 percent of American hogs carry MRSA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public health experts,â&#x20AC;? Kristof wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;worry that pigs could pass on the infection by direct contact with their handlers, through their wastes leaking into ground water (one study has already found antibiotic-resistant bacteria entering ground water from hog farms), or through their meat, though there has been no proven case of someone getting it from eating pork.â&#x20AC;? But what if, instead of contemplating closing the Mexican border in a ďŹ&#x201A;awed effort to keep swine ďŹ&#x201A;u out, we attacked the vile practices of factory farms instead? Instead of stocking up on surgical masks, what if we outlawed the overuse of antibiotics in pigs and other livestock? The world may have dodged a bullet with this latest round of swine ďŹ&#x201A;u, but if left unchecked, crowded hog farms will continue to threaten animal and human health and we may not be so lucky next time. As a restaurant critic, I have to eat pork, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably give it up if eating pork chops and al pastor tacos werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of my job description. That said, there are sources for responsibly raised pork. The World Society for the Protection of Animals has published a survey of 200 grocery stores in the United States to assess the availability of humanely raised pork and other animal products. The report also decodes the substance of food labels. According to the report, â&#x20AC;&#x153;certiďŹ ed humane,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x153;American humane certiďŹ edâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;animal welfare approvedâ&#x20AC;? offer the best, third-party assurance of humanely and responsibly raised meat. Of the national supermarket chains, Whole Foods scored the highest, and Wal-Mart was at the bottom. You can download the report at eathumane.org and ďŹ nd out how local stores stack up.

Keep It Short In the Twitterverse, the ego generation and novel writing meet, 140 characters at a time By Hannah Smith

WORDS ON THE FLY Uxjuufs!opwfmt!bssjwf! bt!àjuujoh!cvstut! pg!jotqjsbujpo/

APAN, land of shiny buildings, flashing neon lights and futuristic cars, has long been ahead of us when it comes to technological gadgets, but when it comes to the classic, page-turning novel, not so much. Until now. Thanks to the alarming speed of teenage girls’ thumbs, we are once again a step behind. Japanese high school girls with no professional writing experience have been texting out sentences in their spare time and uploading them to websites that send them out to fans’ cell phones before swiftly being compiled into books. These novels have become so popular that five of the Japanese Top 10 bestsellers in 2007 were cell-phone novels, and the young girls who nonchalantly texted about love and heartbreak while shopping at the mall have become celebrities. “More than 3 million cell phone novels have been published so far this year,” reported Masayoshi Yoshino, president of Goma Books,

on the Japanese Writer’s House website. “I want to establish this not simply as a fad, but as a new kind of culture.” The idea of instant E-novels has intrigued many would-be and professional authors in the Western world. But obviously, cell-phone novels are, like, so 2007. Now it’s all about Twitter. A social website that allows users to give updates about themselves to their followers in 140 characters or less, Twitter’s updates stack up backward with the earliest being the last, making traditional novel structure a challenge. In short, it takes commitment to tweet a Twitter novel. Bakersfield writer Nick Belardes, author of the trivia book Random Obsessions, due out in paperback from a traditional publisher this summer, is up for the challenge. Belardes started his Twitter novel titled Small Places last April, and now has more than 3,000 followers and an ever-growing story. Small Places skewers the corporate world and follows one

man’s mundane day-to-day life, where he compares himself to a bug and tries to escape monotony by amusing himself and others in the workplace. Small Places’ working-for-theMan theme has obviously brought Belardes many chained-to-theircubicle fans, including those in India and Canada. “A lot of the time they are in corporate meetings, they message me back, and they are kind of snickering about it,” he says. Belardes was using Twitter as a journalistic tool at first, but soon heard of the cell-phone novels in Japan. “Being a novelist,” Belardes says, “I instantly thought, ‘Are there any Twitter novels?’” He started researching and only found rewritten novels, erotic fiction and group writing projects that had gone by the wayside. He decided he would stake his claim and begin his own Twitter novel. “I’d already written part of a manuscript called Cubicles,” he says. “I’d find a section I want to use and then rewrite that to fit the 140-character box.”

Although many may read Twitter novels, not too many nonprofessionals are taking to their keyboard or cell phones to write them, despite how-to guides circulating the Internet. Most Twitter novels are by fiction writers with experience. Otherwise, the only Twitter novels found are written by regular folks based on their lives, like a blog or diary. “Part of the phenomenon these days is for people to write about themselves,” Belardes explains. “To me, that’s the ‘ego generation,’ a 16-year-old kid who is a nobody at school but who’s empowered through the Internet. People get so caught in those egos that they forget that there is this medium out there called fiction. So very few people read fiction and write fiction.” Of course, embracing such an open forum also means opening up for criticism. Twitter novelist Tom Scharpling lashed out late one Monday night in February, ,%

angrily exclaiming about losing followers when posting tweets about his novel Fuel Dump. “And my apologies to those who hate FUEL DUMP. I am not tweeting about the fucking sandwich I ate today. I AM USING TWITTER TO MAKE ART,” he flamed. And unlike the blog craze that landed former stripper Diablo Cody the chance to write and sell the Juno screenplay or the overseas high school cell-phone phenomenon, it is not a money-making endeavor and rarely leads to a book deal. “Do I have to speak Japanese to get a hold of some Japanese publisher?” Belardes asks in exasperation. “Publishing companies are still really archaic. They are still thinking in hardcopy book.” King Dork author Frank Portman has never read a Twitter novel but understands its popularity in our shortattention-span culture. “As for whether it’s a passing trend or the phenomenon that could kill the book—and I say this as a big fan of gimmicks—it is a gimmick,” Portman says via email. “I’m sure the future of the book will be electronic, but I don’t think that means novels will all become a patchwork of short sharp shocks.” Well, who doesn’t love a good gimmick? Yet with people complaining if a YouTube video is more than five minutes long, there could be a problem with books becoming shorter and more condensed in order to keep readers from wandering off to watch a show about celebrity rehab. Portman doesn’t share this worry. “Since writers like to blather on and rarely like being edited, I would imagine that freedom from the limitations of conventional media will result in longer books rather than shorter ones.” Belardes may not see Twitter novels as a gimmick, but as an author he shares Portman’s hope that the Twitter novel will never overtake the hardcover book. “I find that writing a regular novel is more entertaining for me because that is my true love,” he says. Yet he still believes that the Twitter novel is only going to get bigger and more popular with quickly advancing technology. “Everything is going the way of cell phones,” he says. “Cell phones are just going to get smarter, better, more addicting.” New technology like Amazon’s Kindle, a razor-thin wireless reader, which downloads E-books, and websites like DailyLit.com, which sends installments of books to customers via email, are just two new E-streams for writing. Cell phones are practically on their way to world domination, but will they crush good oldfashioned reading beneath them? “Goodness,” Belardes says, “we can only hope people will read more—even if it’s on a cell phone.” M

BALLET REVIEW GdWZgiH]dbaZg

Light and Dark Ballet San Jose’s season closer alternated between fraught and froth HAVE a feeling that much of the audience that paid to see “Song and Dance” were drawn in by the Sinatra tunes, looking for a jovial, Dancing With the Stars–esque trifle. They instead found themselves watching a decidedly more highbrow program of opera and a stark, modern piece about death, with a little THEIR WAY!!Bmfytboesb!Nfjkfs!boe!Usbwjt!Xbmlfs! cspvhiu!b!Tjobusb!tpoh!up!mjgf!bu!uif!cbmmfu/ bit of ol’ blue eyes thrown in at the end to keep ’em in their seats. The three pieces that made up Ballet San Jose’s season closer were probably not everybody’s cup of tea, but they differed so much that viewers were bound to find something that they liked. The program opened with Nilas Martins’ Puccini Songs, a classically airy dance that focused on, as many ballets do, different sorts of loves and relationships. With a grand piano at the left side of the stage, tenor John Matz and soprano Olga Makarina belted out a score of 11 operatic Puccini songs in Italian as four of Ballet San Jose’s principal dancers and two soloists put on a tri-couple performance. The pairing of Maria Jacobs-Yu and Maykel Solas was superb in this act. Martins’ playful choreography and teasing movements made the audience chuckle as the two danced to the more-lighthearted score performed live onstage by pianist Ron Valentino. Dueting as lively young lovers, Jacobs-Yu alternated from fluttering feet to frolicking cartwheels while Solas engaged in effortless, exuberant lifts and spins—and even playful smacks on his partner’s behind. In contrast, Antony Tudor’s Dark Elegies, the second dance of the evening, could have not been more different. This much darker, abstract modern piece was set to Gustav Mahler’s tragic Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children). As performed by Ballet San Jose, Tudor’s 1937 classic was an unusually somber meditation with little story line; it was more of an expression of taut, intense grief and emotion. A dozen dancers depicted townspeople in mourning, clothed in muted peasant wear, the women in Crucible-like white caps. Trained under the Tudor specialist Donald Mahler, the dancers in this piece were not light, effervescent ballerinas but were instead decidedly heavy with emotional weight. Their gestures were jerky and understated, with pointe work used sparingly. The performers were at one moment stiff and angsty, the next crumpling to their knees in a ball, hands raised to their faces in simulated sobs as they finally expressed the misery reflected in the clouded stage background. The tone of the evening then turned on a dime with Twyla Tharp’s Nine Sinatra Songs, which certainly delivered on the glamour front. Lighting designer Kenneth Keith opened this piece with a large disco ball that threw the whole San Jose Center of the Performing Arts into a promlike sea of reflections, drawing much cooing from the audience. With seven men dressed in suave tuxes and seven women in Oscar de la Renta ball gowns, the couples danced a fusion of ballroom, ballet, waltz and tango. Alexsandra Meijer and Travis Walker’s performance of the inebriated couple in “One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)” was one of the most clever and entertaining of the night, featuring gymnastic stumbles and tumbles. With her curly hair falling out of a loose updo, Meijer fell into Walker’s arms as they slinked all over each other with loose, drunken movements and humor. However, Karen Gabay’s usually faultless execution was unfortunately swallowed up by the massive ruffles of her hot pink cha-cha dress, and she and Rudy Candia looked uncomfortable dancing to the fast-paced seventh Sinatra song, “Forget About Tomorrow—Domani.” Still, Shannon Bynum and Daniel Gwatkin were smashing in the whip-smart “That’s Life.” The dance was perfectly choreographed, with Bynum being flung around by Gwatkin with panache, the moves getting swankier and sexier as the horns kicked in. Though uneven, “Song and Dance” proved a wonderfully entertaining and thoughtful combination of performances, even if none of the three pieces blew the audience out of the water.

Cardinal Sins

Only Tom Hanks can save the Vatican from the revenge of the Illuminati in ‘Angels & Demons’ By Richard von Busack

W

HY WOULD anybody want to be anything but Catholic? If you put Martin Luther in a time machine and brought him to a screening of Angels & Demons, even he would want to kiss and make up with the pope. Who can resist the theater, the panoply, the amazing headgear—the tulip-shaped bonnets and the hot-pink satin skullcaps; the marble and porphyry halls; the leather-bound volumes of arcana? The money is up on the screen in Angels & Demons, I’ll grant it that; one hopes Steve Wynn is watching so he can plan his next casino accordingly. And no one can ever get enough Vatican trivia. Two separate characters in Angels & Demons have on their résumés “Great Elector” and “Camerlengo.” Who wouldn’t want to be a camerlengo, just as a summer job anyway? Director Ron Howard makes it look so exciting. Even the extras sitting around St. Peter’s watching the JumboTrons waiting for the pope to be elected have a great time; it’s like Popestock. Howard’s rib-tickling yet inutterably solemn follow-up to The Da Vinci Code is faster than its predecessor. And the film airs a bit of dirty laundry by reminding the Vatican’s management that they used to burn heretics. “Jeez, you guys don’t even read your own history, do you?” snaps our agnostic

hero, Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), to a Vatican official. This is one of the few ringing lines in a script of Ed Wood–worthy fraughtness. The shiniest writing is a speech that Ewan McGregor, who rejoices in the title of camerlengo, delivers to a room full of harrumphing cardinals. Its topic is science vs. faith. And, oh, it is a pippin. In What’s New Pussycat?, just such a speech about the sanctity of marriage was accompanied by a flashing subtitle: “Author’s Message.” If I hadn’t been snorting like a beached walrus, I could have written down the particulars. The gist is that the faithless person who doesn’t understand the sacred power behind lightning is just as bereft as the person who doesn’t understand the science of it. And you’re scratching your head until you draw blood, thinking, “Wait, did co-screenwriter Akiva Goldsman just suggest that God hurls the thunderbolts out of the heavens?” and then we move right along. So. Langdon, renegade Harvard symbologist, is called in by the Vatican to help on a case of extreme urgency. (This urgency is something else that was missing from the last film, a chain of murders, a glorified drama of Catholic Clue: Bishop Mustard in the Nave with a Candlestick.) The pope is newly dead, and everyone is getting busy picking a new one. Meanwhile, a small battery-powered vial of antimatter

[73]

has been filched from a Swiss lab, where physicists were creating a “God particle.” This tiny vial contains the potential of 5 kilotons worth of bang. The fabled Illuminati (thanks, Robert Anton Wilson, wherever you are) possess the stuff and propose to give Vatican City a taste of urban renewal at midnight. Meanwhile, they’ll be icing one cardinal an hour, in revenge for the auto-de-fé-ing of four of their illuminated brethren a few centuries ago. Helped by the good offices of McGregor’s Camerlengo Fr. Patrick McKenna (it means a kind of temporary vice pope), Langdon gains access to the secret Vatican library. There he exhumes from a rare Galileo pamphlet a guide/riddle in English (“the language of Shakespeare and Chaucer,” Langdon explains to the English-speaking audience for this film). Following clues like “Let Angels guide thee on thy lofty path,” he drives around Rome fast, scuttles through old churches and deals with difficult Italian coppers. It’s the long-awaited movie of Rick Steves, International Man of Mystery. This sequel scrupulously avoids sex while going full Dr. Phibes with red-hot branding irons, death by alchemical elements and a couple of grisly demises by flames. Ayelet Zurer plays a European physicist on the trail of the antimatter. In one moment of unbridled sensuality, she lets Langdon serve her a cup of coffee and bring her a blanket. Zurer

dresses so far down she might as well be teaching Sunday school in Ogden, Utah. I could name a dozen actresses who have played nuns, and they still expressed more femininity than Zurer does here. Hanks hits his marks, keeps a straight face and glances at his Mickey Mouse watch, an object no doubt rich with significance to a professional symbologist. Hanks’ loyal presence diffuses the possible blasphemy. Do you know where Hanks really earns his salary? It’s in the scene where he says to McGregor, shamefacedly, “The gift of faith is a gift I haven’t received.” You look into Hanks’ face, that face of canine trustworthiness, and think, “Oh yes, you do believe in God, yes you do.” Angels & Demons’ punchline has more dash than The Da Vinci Code—a handy helicopter brings up a burst of bad-movie audacity. This, sadly, proceeds a twist ending so weakly integrated into the rest of the show that it looks as if the cast sat down together and watched the alternate finale on the DVD extras. Speaking of Utah, if they revive Langdon for another adventure, can they send him to Salt Lake City? I think it’s the Mormons’ turn in the barrel. ANGELS & DEMONS (PG-13; 138 min.), directed by Ron Howard, written by David Koepp and Akiva Goldsman, based on the novel by Dan Brown, photographed by Salvatore Totino and starring Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor, opens May 15. .

Bitter Fruit The Israeli feature ‘Lemon Tree’ looks at both sides of a hot-button issue

Adoration (R; 100 min.) Adoration. In modern suburban Toronto, a parentless young man (Devon Bostick) reveals to his school class the story of how his parents were terrorists. The story is repeated on the Internet and spirals out of control. Then again, stories spiraling out of control, stories that burrow into ever-deeper layers of fraudulence, are the essence of Atom Egoyan’s films. Adoration is a slippery and rhetorical account of how terrorism grows out of misunderstood family histories and good old toxic parenting. Still, despite Arsinée Khanjian, who plays a mysterious schoolteacher, the film eventually dries up and blows away. A real pity; Egoyan is a sincere humanist trying to understand terrorist rage—“We’re all victims of circumstance” is one line, and it might as well be the film’s motto. The elements that echo his first film, Family Viewing, and his

elliptical but brilliant Ararat, remind us not just of his importance as a filmmaker but of everything that’s missing here. (Opens May 15 at Camera 12 in San Jose.)

Keaton directs, from a script by first-time feature film writer Ron Lazzeretti. (Opens May 15 at CinéArts Santana Row.)

A

NEW Israeli movie feels out the situation in Israel, hoping that a mainstream audience on both sides of the divide can understand the problem. Lemon Tree does what it aims to do very well. It’s an allthings-to-all-people sort of film. It caters to the Arab audience’s preference for a suffering-woman’s melodrama, and yet it’s also a sly Israeli fable. The setting is the West Bank, where new Defense Minister Israel Navon (the burly Doron Tavory) has just moved into an exclusive new home right on the line between Israel and Palestine. The back yard of the minister’s house faces an old lemon orchard of some 10 acres, tended by a lonely but handsome Palestinian widow, Salma (Hiam Abbass). Right in the middle of the line is a Jewish soldier, Itamar (Danny Leshman), in an elevated sentry box. The soldier passes the time working on a logic test as part of his promotion; on tape, he hears brain-teasing questions such as the “Socrates is dead, therefore Socrates is a cat . . .” fallacy. Below him, a similar fallacy is acted out: some terrorists are Palestinian, ergo they all are. Eyeing the grove, the Israeli Secret Service decides the trees are large enough to conceal terrorists. Under the Intifada Act, the Israeli government orders Salma to uproot the lemon orchard, offering some settlement money as “a token of the state’s good faith and generosity.” Salma asks a lawyer, Ziad Daud (Ali Suliman), to take her case to court, pro bono. It draws national attention. Meanwhile, Mira (Rona Lipaz-Michael), the neglected wife of the defense minister, begins to understand the unfairness of the situation. Director Eran Riklis (The Syrian Bride) manages to give the troubles of both sides their due weight, without being wishy-washy. His sympathy overweighs some of the script’s heavier symbolism. The film has its homely, obvious side—the creaky handling of Salma and lawyer Ziad’s romance, for instance, and also the court testimony of an old family retainer who lives only to raise those lemons. In what might be a borrowing from Fritz Lang’s Scarlet Street, Salma is under watch by a portrait of her late husband—a glowering, homely oaf. She must submit to tradition, though she has a tender thing for her lawyer. And the local men in the town are keeping a watch on Salma to make sure she doesn’t dishonor her dead husband, even after he’s in the grave. Lemon Tree contrasts—without comment—two different kinds of lives for women. We see the mobility enjoyed by Israeli women, since they’re the ones who make a case out of Salma’s plight. By contrast, silence comes down like a curtain when Salma walks into a roomful of the male Palestinian elders. Salma 1 COL. X 1" = 1" (SAU) gets no help, other than the threatening reminder that she is forbidden to take FILLER AD News footage serves as a reminder any compensation money from the Israelis. that this kind of story is all too true, with scenes of the Israelis uprooting ancient olive trees to make room for would-be gentry. “It appears that only American movies have a happy ending,” Ziad says, after one defeat. Lemon Tree’s catalyzes on double-edged sorrow; it depicts a West Bank colonization process as a plague on both houses. The lemon-colored sunlight of the early scenes wanes by the end of the movie, through more enclosures, more security grates and ever more ominous and ugly blast walls. Richard von Busack LEMON TREE (Unrated; 106 min.), directed by Eran Riklis, written by Riklis and Suha Arraf, photographed by Rainer Klausmann and starring Hiam Abbass and Doron Tavory, opens May 15 at Camera 3 in San Jose.

Revivals Hatari!/Rio Grande (1962/1950) It means “Danger” in Swahili. John Wayne, in one of his more easy-going parts, plays a hunter in Africa bringing critters back alive for the zoos. Elsa Martinelli is the girl in the picture; Henry Mancini’s love theme to a baby elephant was one of the favorite instrumentals of the decade. BILLED WITH Rio Grande. John Wayne as a lieutenant colonel of the U.S. Cavalry, holding the fort against the Apaches and dealing with the matter of his wife (Maureen O’Hara) and child (Claude Jarman Jr.). Directed by John Ford. (Plays May 16-17 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB) I Wake Up Dreaming: The Haunted World of B Film Noir See story on page 78. In Harm’s Way/The Wings of Eagles (1965/1957) Otto Preminger’s naval epic of World War II with John Wayne as a navy officer. Demoted after Pearl Harbor, he redeems himself at Leyte Gulf. It’s based on a novel by James Bassett, Nixon’s campaign manager in two presidential elections and the former press aide to Adm. “Bull” Halsey, beloved to war buffs and Paul McCartney and Wings fans alike. BILLED WITH The Wings of Eagles. Wayne as pioneering Navy pilot “Spig” Wead, who made a midlife career change to screenwriting. Ward Bond plays a thinly disguised version of this film’s director, John Ford. Maureen O’Hara co-stars. (Plays May 15 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre). (RvB) Wings (1927) William Wellman’s epic air drama has Clara Bow as a nurse vied for by Buddy Rogers and Richard Arlen; though Gary Cooper has one small scene, the real star is the air-show itself. Wellman, who had been a beribboned pilot in the Great War, oversaw the dogfights. They were all created the hard way without special effects or process shots, and are still damnably exciting. Plays noon and 7:30pm, with a symposium at 3:30pm with William Wellman Jr., who will be screening his documentary about his daredevil director father, Wild Bill. Also on hand will be Shawna Kelly, who will discuss the stunt flying in the film. Dr. Frederick Hodges

Reviews All About Dad (Unrated) When Mark Tran wrote the screenplay for All About Dad as a 19-yearold San Jose State student, he drew on his experiences growing up in a large Vietnamese family in California. The central plot point was that the main character— loosely based on himself—wants to give up his boring biology classes and make movies, but his father comes from a generation unwilling to see filmmaking as anything but a frivolous distraction. Chi Pham brings a quiet storm to the character of Dad. As the title character who drives the action in this Viet-American family comedy, Dad requires a performance that is not entirely sympathetic, but not unsympathetic, either. Pham plays the proud patriarch who requires that everything be all about Dad, without losing sight of the fact that for Dad, everything is about the well-being of his family. It is a remarkable performance, especially for a non-profesional, firsttime actor. The film, a well-desrved hit at Cinequest, is now back for a theatrical run. (SP) Anvil! The Story of Anvil (Unrated; 90 min.) There may be better movies about heavy metal than Anvil! but you’ll never see one that’s more tender. Robb Reiner and Steve “Lips” Kudlow made up the core of the all-too-real Toronto-based band Anvil whose heyday was the early 1990s. It has been said that all successful documentaries have clear villains and heroes. Here, the villain is, clearly, time itself. During an endless mid-oughties Canadian winter of discontent, we see the trek of a group perhaps too old to rock & roll—and definitely too stubborn to do anything else. Stiffed, lost and stranded, the band considers packing it in. Kudlow and Reiner, and their respective families, put a lot of trust into director Sacha Gervasi, and that trust is completely rewarded. Anvil! is an affectionate tribute to heavy metal rather than a mockery. (RvB) Earth (G; 136 min.) It’s Disney’s Earth, we just live here. James Earl Jones rumbles on the soundtrack as the sunrise is viewed from outer space. Holding the series of critter encounters together is the plight of a polar bear family—“Dad,”“Mom” and two cubs, an heir and a spare—during the course of a year. The stunning small effects make more of an impression. Remarkable time-lapse photography pans gently across a valley while observing the yearly change of a forest of deciduous trees from bare branches to scarlet leaves. Otherwise, it’s the usual: shark vs. seal, polar bear vs. walrus, lions vs. elephant, and cheetah vs. gazelle. To the organization’s credit, Disney bites the bullet: “The planet is warming,” Jones says, leaving no room for backpedaling. Very, very cute, and the ending is somehow happy and comforting, just like the critter shows one drowses through at the end of a beery Sunday. (RvB) Every Little Step (PG-13; 96 min.) James D. Stern and Adam Del Deo’s outstanding documentary about the casting of the recent revival of A Chorus Line. The film outshines any episode of American Idol. A group of Broadway hopefuls turn up for auditions, reauditions and “final, final callbacks” for this musical about desperate-for-a-job chorines and chorus boys. The challenge to the show’s

director, Bob Avian, is to find the people who can hit specific roles without copying the original cast members. In between the scenes showing the craft, tremendously hard work and occasional arrogance of the would be stars, we learn about the history of the show. It began as a counter-culturish mid -1970s experiment by Michael Bennett—a dancer whose attack on the aging, sclerotic Broadway of the day had a little Lenny Bruce in it. (The number “Dance 10, Looks 3” has a chorus that recalls Bruce’s observation of what’s playing Vegas at any given time.) Interviews include Marvin Hamlisch and the amazing Baayork Lee, this version’s choreographer and the living model for the character of Connie in the original production. (RvB) Fighting (PG-13; 105 min.) A movie about long walks on the beach and sensitive fireside conversations—not. Channing Tatum gets

introduced to the thrills of street fighting. Also stars Terrence Howard.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (PG-13; 115 min.) A romantic comedy about, well, about the ghosts of past girlfriends. Stars Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner.

The Southington, Conn., Funeral Home case investigated by the team of Ed and Lorraine Warren is the “true story” part of this film; this (no surprise) highly fictionalized PG-13 version takes out all of the demonic sex and takes up one kind of interesting angle. Since cancer wards are scarier than haunted houses, the film traffics in some of the authentic horrors of a disease usually used in the movies for its life-affirming qualities.

Brother Act Two siblings in Mexico get all that money can buy in ‘Rudo y Cursi’

E

VEN WITH the severely glutted film market, I wish we got three times as many films from Mexico as actually arrive here. Rudo y Cursi will certainly do. It is produced by some of the most revered names in new Mexican cinema (Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu) and directed by Cuarón’s brother, Carlos. The film reunites Diego Luna and the criminally handsome Gael García Bernal of Alfonso Cuarón’s Y tu Mamá También. Like Y tu Mamá También, the action is narrated, but the difference is in the approach. The narrator in the former was the detached Godardian. In Rudo y Cursi, the narrator is Batuta, “Baton” (Guillermo Francella), who is full of charming fatalistic proverbs about the relation between soccer and life. Baton is an essentially a trickster figure, with dyed whiskers and a sports car. Like the devil, Baton looks for mischief where he can find it. He finds it on a rural soccer field. Baton discovers Tato (Bernal) and Beto (Luna), who are apparently halfbrothers, though some of the reviewers are calling them brothers. The two are classic hijos de chingada, and their parentage is a little uncertain, though each boasts of the superior virtues of his long-gone father. It hardly matters, because their mutual mother’s latest boyfriend is a repulsive cop. The guys work a banana plantation and are about to run away to the United States. The talent scout Baton sees their talent on the field but figures he can only take one of the pair. That one is Tato, who figures that futbol is just his day job until he can make a fortune being a cowboy-suited accordion player. In Mexico City, Tato rises to the top of the game, and he pressures Baton to sign Beto as a goalie. Beto is a success, ruling the goal posts and shutting out team after team. Unfortunately, his rude behavior gets him the nickname “Rudo.” For a time the two do well. Tato, now with his own nickname, “Cursi,” meaning “snotty,” gets involved with the TV starlet Maya (Jessica Mas). Tato also lands a fine house and even a few gigs, where he repeatedly massacres Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me.” But Beto’s gambling and Tato’s hopeless love for the no-good Maya change both their luck for the worse. I’m not sure why the subtitles translate Baton’s words into Cockney slang; this may have been to please the British market, due to the widely held belief that Americans don’t care about soccer. To be fair, this is an extremely idiom-heavy movie. Rudo y Cursi takes a merry tone to a story in which all roads lead to failure. Ultimately, the one true success is a local narco-thug with an army of bodyguards; he helps himself to the only peaceful spot in the film, a beautiful local beach, and he’s a diabolus ex machina who brings in a sort of unhappyhappy ending. Yet it’s troubling to suspect that Rudo y Cursi is really at heart a cautionary tale of two rural bumpkins who rise above their station. Because of that slight patronization, Rudo y Cursi is only almost really funny and only almost really tragic, though always thoroughly and elegantly moraled: “Pity, nowadays, wars are mistaken for games and games are mistaken for wars.” Richard von Busack RUDO Y CURSI (R; 110 min.), directed and written by Carlos Cuarón, photographed by Adam Kimmel and starring Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna, opens May 15.

Lions and Goats The Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival offers sitcoms and sit-down tragedies

T

HIS WEEK at the Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival: The Book of Ecclesiastics warns that it is better to go to the house of mourning than the house of feasting, but the family in Shiva (May 16, 8:30pm) finds it would have been better to stay at home in the first place. Here’s Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz’s drama about the unwinding of a mixed family of Moroccan and Iraqi Jews during the forced seven days of mourning. The rituals involve, shudder, a familywide slumber party, the covering of mirrors and the forbidding of meat, jewelry and laughter. The family here is observed in long, Ozu-level shots, since they’re supposed to sit on the floor if they can. They discover that the passing of the departed brother—he dropped dead at a party at 4am—removes the keystone that held them all together. Things get ugly and then uglier, with the revelation of the rivalries, of collapsing businesses and suppurating resentment; meanwhile the older relatives are breast-beating and ululating to beat the band. Meir (Albert Iluz) can’t budget the time for mourning because he’s in a hard-fought mayoral election; Vivianne (co-director Ronit Elkabetz, who was the co-star of the notto-be-forgotten Late Marriage) can’t wait to confront her spineless husband. And meanwhile—since Shiva is set in 1991—Iraqi Scud missiles are striking Israel. “I wish a missile would fall on this family,” prays one of the bent-out-ofshape members of the family. On May 17 at 7pm, the festival presents four episodes of the witty, fast and laugh-track-free situation comedy/drama Arab Labor. This show needs no intro if you’re Israeli; the Chronicle’s Jonathan Curiel has called it “The Palestinian Seinfeld.” The title Arab Labor is a common slur, meaning the same thing as “jerry-built.” Novelist and ex-Ha’aretz reporter Sayed Kashua’s show does approximately what the Norman Lear era of sitcoms did in America in the 1970s—takes controversial issues of prejudice and put a human face on them, representing a people who are usually presented only as a problem. Bemused reporter Amjad Amian (Norman Issa) is a secular, thoroughly assimilated Arab, working as a journalist and living in his lifelong home in Israel with his family. Prickly Granddad (Salim Dao, very reminiscent of Alan Arkin) provides the salt, and precocious daughter Maya (the delightful Fatimah Yihie) brings on the sugar. One episode to be screened at the festival regards the problems of finding a school for Maya, who goes to an Islamic kindergarten and pretends to have grown fanatically pious to get out of school; but the alternative, a Jewish-run “Peace School,” isn’t interested in Arab children whatsoever. Amjad’s wife, Bushra (Clara Khoury), comments that Amjad is bound for disappointment in a fractured society: “You have a big heart, you think everyone is like you.” Playing May 20 at 7pm as part of this Israel 61st-birthday celebration is It’s Now or Never, Eitan Londner’s historical drama concerning the declaration of statehood of Israel in November 1949, despite the foreboding of David BenGurion (Yossi Kantz) about the future of the country. Richard von Busack

THE SILICON VALLEY JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL takes place May 16–17 and 20 at Cubberley Theater in Palo Alto. For details, see www.svjff.org.

75( possible reasonable explanation for his seeing dead people at the scary old house in “Goatswood, Conn.” But then things get awfully familiar: Martin Donovan as the alcoholic father doing Mr. Torrance from The Shining, Elias Koteas as Fr. Merrin from The Exorcist and the licensed-to-startle house bringing out so much of the CGI you’ve seen before (the one new development being ectoplasm, or ghost barf). Too many characters, not enough development. Virginia Madsen takes it very seriously as the mom, but she’s no help. The power of prayer saves the day—wouldn’t the movie be scarier if it didn’t? (RvB) Monsters vs. Aliens (PG; 94 min.) The antithesis of Pixar’s obsessed pop-culture cartoon symphonies, this OK but forgettable spoof of ’50s sci-fi has a few interesting scenes. Modesto girl Susan (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) is hit by a meteorite and spontaneously mutates into a 50-foot woman. Taken away by the Army, she is locked up in a steel dungeon with several other monsters: a gelatinous blob called B.O.B. (Seth Rogan); a Creature From the Black Lagoon–style amphibian the Missing Link (Will Arnett) and the genetically spliced mutant Dr. Cockroach Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie). At first, Susan just wants to get back to her life. Then, when Earth is threatened by an alien conqueror called Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson), Susan reluctantly accepts her country’s call to battle the intruder, under her code name Ginormica. The monsters never seem to evince real personalities—they’re too busy being cute. (RvB) Next Day Air (R; 90 min.) Donald Faison and Mike Epps star in an action comedy about two guys who stumble across a big-money stash of blow. Obsessed (PG-13) A successful guy (Idris Elba) becomes the target of a female stalker (Ali Larter), much to the chagrin of his wife (Beyoncé). It’s a Fatal Attraction–type thriller by director Steve Shill, who is moving up from a variety of prestigious TV shows (Dexter, Rome, The Sopranos) to the big screen. 17 Again (PG-13; 102 min.) A man gets a chance to relive an important teenage year in his life. Stars Matthew Perry as the adult and Zac Efron as the teen. Shall We Kiss?

(Unrated; 96 min.) This interestingly stoic moral tale about adultery suggests the following: the real problem isn’t that such a lapse hurts society or loved ones, but rather that it exposes you to a chance of losing your self-control. Director Emmanuel Mouret’s direction makes for a very dry and beige film at first but stick with it; the film picks up some steam when Judith (Virginie Ledoyen of The Valet and 8 Women) begins her trysts with a best friend (Mouret). The framing story concerns two otherwise involved people (Julie Gayet, Michael Cohen) on their own at night in a hotel at Nantes; both making a night out of considering whether or not to take it to the next level. Loaded with icons of high culture, classical music and old books, this oddly sedate, slightly contrived date movie keeps one watching. Various anecdotes (such as Mouret’s visit to a prostitute called Eglantine, of all things) have enough of a lived-in quality that we never think of the film as all taking place in a director’s head. With Frédérique Bel, very sweet as a cuddly but hard-headed stewardess. (RvB) The Soloist (PG-13; 109 min.) On again, off again truelife story of a deranged street musician (Jamie Foxx) who turns out to have spent time at Juilliard; this and more is teased out during his troubled friendship with his Boswell (Robert Downey Jr., very good and very dry), an L.A. Times columnist named Steve Lopez. The highlight is the nigh-apocalyptic view of the city’s boiling homeless encampment, like something out of Bosch. The backstory of Lopez’s romantic troubles, a fictional subplot borrowed from His Girl Friday, is, by contrast, about as believable as a bum’s tale about why he needs a dollar. Foxx does some artistically athletic turns—he switches gears fast—but his hammy, babbling rain-man gets on the nerves, and his acting in the flashback scenes is almost risible. The Soloist demonstrates one of the essential marks of simple-minded scriptwriting: the idea of that the disturbed have a special conduit to the divine. (RvB) Star Trek (PG-13; 126 min.) Happily, J.J. Abrams’ version of the 40-year-old story is a loving refurbishing of an old structure, rather than a demolishing. Traditions honored include the green babe (Rachel Nichols) and the red-shirted ensign. As Kirk, Chris Pine himself is the ham this sandwich needs. Zachary Quinto is very poised as Spock, the tragic mulatto of space. Abrams’ tendency to undervillain the picture is redeemed by his making the villain fast, raging and

large. Eric Bana, made up so that his face looks like a spider’s abdomen, plays Nero, a Romulan renegade escaped from the future. The film’s only conventional love interest involves Zoe Saldana’s Uhuru, drawn to Spock, as who wouldn’t be. The film’s real tension arises in the partnership between Kirk and Spock—two halves of one great leader, calm calculation meeting insane daring. (RvB) State of Play (PG-13, 118 min.) Good but underpowered journo-thriller remake of the British miniseries, with a likable Russell Crowe as Cal McAffrey, a rumpled slob of a “Washington Globe” investigative reporter. McAffrey covers the shooting of a petty thief in Georgetown, as well as the clipping of a witness. Somehow involved in it all is a congressman (Ben Affleck), Cal’s college roommate. The sign of the times in this movie is Cal’s partnership with a young blogger (Rachel McAdams) who learns that the whole conspiracy is more than a sex-scandal sideshow. The film is at its most likable when it comes down against the derailment of worthwhile political careers by the morals clause, especially in the face of more genuine menaces to society. (RvB) Sunshine Cleaning (R; 102 min.) In Albuquerque, two sisters get into the lucrative field of cleaning up after dead bodies. Christine Jeff ’s mostly pleasant comedy of death and bloodshed is lit up like a pink lamp shade by the everlovable Amy Adams and given some dark highlights by Emily Blunt as her grimier sibling. The film seems trampled over by a producer’s cold feet, but what’s left has charm and hard-nosed humor. With Alan Arkin as the feckless father of the sisters— looking fit as usual, Arkin; he’ll probably get a shovel and bury us all some day. (RvB) Tyson (Unrated; 88 min.) Title subject and executive producer Mike Tyson is kept in a medium close-up for most of the picture. In between Tyson’s straight-to-the-camera interviews—sometimes mixed in with splitscreen and overlapping dialogue—director James Toback cuts to Tyson wandering on his beach like a lonely guy in a datingservice commercial. What you get out of Tyson is the immense amount of fear that created this champion fighter and champion failure. The boxer presents himself today as a calm, clean and sober man in his 40s; a religious family man, as opposed to the mad dog and convicted rapist he once was. Tyson is a compelling, sobering movie, though Toback’s own overlay of great, deep-man status on Tyson clouds the issue a little. (RvB) X-Men Origins: Wolverine (PG-13; 107 min.) The filmed X-Men series has as its antihero a handsome loner of a mutant who learns to care for his fellow creatures. By contrast, the prequel is just a movie about a guy with cool metal claws. Hugh Jackman’s hero is, it turns out, actually more than 150 years old; moreover he has a psycho half-brother called Victor (Liev Schreiber). Eventually, Wolvie fled back to Canada to become a lumberjack and live with a vaguely Native American schoolmarm called Kayla Silverfox (Lynn Collins) in a humble cottage that looks like a cardiologist’s vacation chalet. But “The Man” won’t let him be. The man is Col. Stryker (Danny Huston, looking as guilty as a whipped dog). After the vengeful Victor attacks Kayla, our hero agrees to let the U.S. military electroplate his skeleton with adamantium. Gavin Hood’s semianonymous direction leaves Jackman and Schreiber’s CGI-created avatars running at each other like horny rhinos for most of the picture; it has most of the toxic assets of the summer blockbuster: guy in fat suit, lack of women, plot devices of the utmost dunderheadedness particularly the now infamous “amnesia bullet.” (RvB)

Innerspace Two young sisters learn to cope in Korean ‘Treeless Mountain’

T

HE KOREAN import Treeless Mountain deserves to be classified in the category with the most superior films about childhood, such as Ponette, Nobody Home, I Was Born, But ... and Forbidden Games. Director Kim So Yong concentrates on the close-up shot, presenting children as spies behind the lines in the forbidding world of adults. Young Jin (Hee Yeon Kim) lives in a Seoul apartment building. She is a bright girl-child who loves school and is socializing well; we see her cleaning up in a game of Pog in the schoolyard. On her way home from school, Jin goes to pick up her little sister, Bin (Song Hee Kim). The younger girl had a fancy to wear a costume to the baby-sitter’s, a blue satinized polyester version of a Velasquez princess dress. What Bin doesn’t know is that she’ll be wearing that princess dress for several months. The mother returns home, with a look of such frayed weariness it’s no surprise to see her daughters starting to inherit that look a little. An adult knocks on the door and asks for a word with Mom. It is most likely news of eviction; the girl’s father, a wife-batterer, has already fled the family. The mother drops the two girls off with her husband’s sister, who lives in a far, small town. On her way out of the movie, Mom says something that she probably shouldn’t have said. She says that the Aunt (referred to as “Big Aunt” and played by Mi Hiyang Kim) will reward Bin and Jin. For every incident of good behavior, they will receive a coin from her, and by the time their pink plastic piggybank is full, Mom will be back. Big Aunt doesn’t even have rage about her nieces’ arrival. She’s indifferent to them, neither loving them nor laying a finger on them. Big Aunt is a very focused and purposeful alcoholic. There are no mood swings, no tirades; there is instead a continuous bad mood broken by a soundless, eventless passing out. Bin and Jin are on their own, so they interact a little with the neighbor kids. The children eat grasshoppers like they do in Oaxaca, spitting them and roasting them on a grill. We see the first act of rebellion by young Bin; when the older sister tells the younger that eating grasshoppers is gross, Bin flashes a buggy grin at her elder sister. Soon the two are trying to add to their piggy bank by selling roast grasshoppers to the schoolkids. Kim’s direction keeps the subjective focus on a kid’s life throughout this short but affecting movie; the music-free landscapes, creekscapes and skyscapes are watched for information, just as the sisters study the people around them. It’s possible that the title comes from a typically elegant Asian botanical symbol, one of possibly two, in fact: either a barren cone in the distance looming over the small town where they’re staying or maybe the large dirt heap near the town’s bus stop where Bin and Jin wait in the afternoons, hoping for their mother to return. Treeless Mountain is a strangely fast-paced film, considering the lack of argument or violence (except against grasshoppers). There is a rescue from an unexpected quarter and the emergence of dawning compassion in two children, who had previously been so busy raising themselves that they couldn’t spare a lot of feelings for others. Richard von Busack TREELESS MOUNTAIN (Unrated; 89 min.), directed and written by So Young Kim, photographed by Anne Misawa and starring Hee Yeon Kim and Song Hee Kim, opens May 15 at Camera 12 in San Jose.

HIS MAY NOT be the best of years economically, but 2009 does boast not just one but two festivals devoted to film noir. In January, Eddie Muller’s Noir City Festival seemed like a surfeit of riches. Now comes I Wake Up Dreaming: The Haunted World of the B Film Noir, running May 15–28 at San Francisco’s Roxie Theater. This tribute to dark and rainy mean streets down which lonely disaffected men and disabused women must walk presents almost 30 features, many of them unavailable on DVD. The festival has been curated by Elliot Lavine, author of TV Noir: I Wake Up Dreaming, which claims to descend into the “doom, depravity and overwhelming futility of life itself” by gathering together collage-style TV Guide minidescriptions of noir, crime and Poverty Row features. Out of many riches at the festival, 1947’s Framed (shows May 17 with Canon City) stands out. In a classic noir setup, a drifter (Glenn Ford, one of the genre’s icons) named Mike rolls into a podunk town and immediately meets a blonde siren named Paula (Janis Craig). Mike is the kind of clueless but eager sucker ready-made to be a fall guy. Janis and her married boyfriend, Steve (Barry Sullivan), want to run off together, but first they have to arrange a convenient fake suicide, and they’re measuring Mike to be the unidentifiable corpse in a staged car wreck. The plot moves with great efficiency to a bleak, sadder-butwiser ending. Quintessential tough guy Lawrence Tierney stars in two films. In 1947’s The Devil Thumbs a Ride (May 15, with The Guilty), Tierney plays Steve Morgan, a bank robber/killer on the lam. A good-natured but very dim traveling salesman named Jimmy (Ted North) picks up Steve on a long nighttime drive back from San Diego to L.A. Steve talks Jimmy into offering a lift to a couple of stranded women, and they all end up at a Laguna beach house, where Steve reveals his inner sociopath. Tierney’s smiling but menacing villain overwhelms everyone around him; with his sleek head of hair and bland good looks he is like a feral Gene Kelly. Tierney also stars in The Hoodlum (1951; May 22, with New York Confidential) as a con on parole, trying (but not very hard) to go straight. Instead, he seduces and abandons his brother’s weak-willed girlfriend and masterminds a bank robbery. The Hoodlum harks back to the Cagney/ Robinson crime dramas of the early 1930s. Character actress Lisa Golm, as Tierney’s long-suffering mom, delivers two vintage scenes—one at the parole board hearing and one on her extended death bed—that are classics of maternal histrionics. Other features to watch for: No Man’s Woman (1955; May 21 with Private Hell 36), in which brassy Marie Windsor plays an art-gallery owner who manipulates every man in town, from her estranged husband to the local art critic. Shack Out on 101 (1955; May 28 with City of Fear) pretty much defies any attempt to shoehorn it into a genre. A product of nuclear paranoid, it gathers together in a beachside cafe some misfits and sinister spies in a farrago of mayhem and low, low humor. It stars Lee Marvin, Keenan Wynn, Terry Moore and a stuffed swordfish. Michael S. Gant

The Gang’s All Sneer The sordid story of the Tubes and why NorCal is sarcasm central By Steve Palopoli

I

TELEGENIC Uif!Uvcft!tqfdjbmj{f!jo! tfsjpvt!jspoz/

S THERE some reason that the most sarcastic bands in the history of rock music have come from the Bay Area? Most of them arose from the original punk era in the mid-to-late-’70s, less than 10 years after San Francisco’s Summer of Love. But this particularly virulent strain of vicious irony spread not just through hardcore bands like the Dead Kennedys (“Kill the Poor”), Flipper (“Ha Ha Ha”) and the Offs (“Everyone’s a Bigot”), but across the board to the gold-record-selling new wave of the Tubes. And it wasn’t just the songs, but the attitudes, live shows and even names of these bands that someone or other was endlessly finding offensive. For years, this area had a lock on screw-you music. The question is: what was it about living here that made them all so cranky? The Tubes’ vocalist Fee Waybill thinks he has a pretty good idea, and it has to do with how the band got its name. “In San Francisco in the early ’70s, we were just kind of guinea pigs for marketing,” says Waybill from his home in Los Angeles. “We were test-tube babies.” What’s so bad about that? Well, besides a lot of fast-food experiments, Waybill remembers failed endeavors like the “Super Slide,” which involved

attaining high velocity while sitting on a burlap sack. “Naturally, you would just friction-burn your ass all the way to the bottom,” he says. And then there was the trampoline park. “You’d fly out and break your arm ’cause you didn’t know what the fuck you were doing,” remembers Waybill. “That didn’t go too well.” And the end result of growing up lab rat? “Needless to say, it made us a little sarcastic.” Perhaps that’s how Waybill and his longtime friends who made up the original incarnation of the band ended up dressed up as the “Radar Men From Uranus,” singing “Our Lord is a hot dog,” as part of a 30minute performance piece called “Ascension of the Mother Lode,” a Spinal Tap–like take on 2001: A Space Odyssey. From there, it just got nuts. Waybill, a theater major whose background was in musical comedy, would dress up as an endless slew of characters, from the famous rock-star parody Quay Lewd to a game-show host, a carny, a desperate businessman—anything. And as the group’s popularity grew, the shows got exponentially more elaborate. “It used to be ridiculous,” he says. “It used to be every song was this huge production.”

Indeed, the band would literally act out every song, from “Young and Rich” to “Sushi Girl.” Of course, when your oeuvre includes songs like “Pimp,” “Don’t Touch Me There” and especially “Mondo Bondage,” things were bound to get controversial. Waybill still has the bondage gear that got famous fast. But what made their reputation was the sheer scope of the shows—these were concerts with casts. And acrobats. Punks went to see the Tubes, even when the Tubes were making fun of them in their most famous song, “White Punks on Dope.” The first time the band went to England, Waybill was even doing a Sex Pistols parody, sticking safety pins in his face and calling himself “Johnny Bugger.” Did those punks even get lines like “Hang myself when I get enough rope”? “I guess they did,” says Waybill. “They played along. They thought it was funny.” Hell, everyone was having fun back then—except the Tubes. From the outside, it looked they were living the ultimate rock & roll dream. They had Top 40 hits like “Don’t Want to Wait Anymore” and the No. 1 “She’s a Beauty. “But like too many bands, they had little or no control over their finances and their publishing rights, which were sold away by their

manager. The more they spent on their shows, the more often they’d come back from their tours in debt. They owed their label money. “Our problem was we’d have to top ourselves every time,” says Waybill. “We never made any money. Then we made a bad decision on the musical side, and it pretty much fell apart.” That was 1985’s Love Bomb, which really was a bomb. The band ended up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and with no musical direction. Waybill quit and moved to L.A., where he returned to acting and made a fortune as a songwriter. But after years of not performing, the promise of a big tour in Europe brought him back, and after a moratorium on stage shows for a few years, the Tubes have even returned to a more manageable version of their famous live act. And they control every aspect of band business. And they’re finally having fun again. “We’ve kind of been a little bit smarter this time,” says Waybill. “We’re holding our own reins. We do as much show as we can afford to do. And we just go play.” THE TUBES perform Friday (May 15) at 8pm at the Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City. Tickets are $25. (650.369.4119)

Only one tiny complication: just not enough to stop spending it with the other guy. While there’s never a good time to tell the woman you love that she’s nothing but a piece of meat, your revelation probably came at a particularly good time for her. It’s likely she needed an out, but didn’t realize it until you handed it to her, medium-rare, on a platter. Maybe her identity’s wrapped up in the Flo Nightingale thing, and she’s worried about what people will say if she ditches the guy. Chances are, she’s either too unformed as a person to decide what she wants or too afraid to express it. It’s a pity, since you and she have at least one big thing in common: the idea that ignoring reality will make it go away, not just curl up behind you and use the extra time to sharpen its teeth. If somebody you’re dating has to keep you a secret, bells should go off in your head, and I don’t mean the wedding kind. More like those in an alarm clock—the kind for heavy sleepers that first plays

a little tune (say, Cannibal Corpse’s “Hammer Smashed Face”), then throws itself on the bed and starts head-butting you. So, what does it take to wake you? Despite all her secrecy and stonewalling, you’re still finding excuses to keep mooning after her, like how “deeply in love” you are. (Apparently, you’ve always dreamed of meeting a woman who’d take your heart in her hands—and then put it down on her kitchen counter and forget about it for a few months.) You’re still stuck on her because you’re focusing on how great it was with her instead of how great it wasn’t. She’s a package deal, and the moment she said, “Whoops, look at the time, gotta go home to my fiance,” it should have been clear she was a bad package. You do say you two had “chemistry” you “didn’t know was possible.” Well, good news! Now you know—which means you can seek it with somebody else; ideally, along with the empathy and ethics you took for granted. It’s gotta beat clinging to your fantasy of walking off into the sunset together— while doing everything in your power to drown out the likely reality: on either side of her husband’s wheelchair.

It seems he likes his ex-wife and gets something out of talking to her. Either he’s trustworthy or he isn’t. If you aren’t getting

enough time and attention, that’s one thing. If this is just jealousy, your problem isn’t how much he’s calling her but how little you think of you. Do your best to build yourself up, keeping in mind that he’s with you for a reason, and it probably isn’t that he has yet to chip the ankle shackle off the wall and tunnel out of your basement.

ROB BREZSNY

xffl!pg!nbz!24 xxx/gsffxjmmbtuspmphz/dpn

6g^Zh(March 21–April 19): “Some people will

never learn anything because they understand everything too soon,” wrote Alexander Pope. Most of us have been guilty of that sin: jumping to conclusions so quickly that we don’t bother to keep listening for the full revelation. My sense is that this behavior has become even more common in recent years because we’re inundated by fragments of slapdash information mixed with blips of superficial analysis and echoed hearsay. But please avoid falling prey to the syndrome in the coming week, Aries. More than ever before, you need to gather raw data thoroughly, weigh the evidence with great deliberation, and come to careful understandings.

IVjgjh(April 20–May 20): “The people of future generations will win many a liberty of which we do not yet even feel the want,” said German philosopher Max Stirner. That bracing prediction has special meaning for you right now, Taurus. According to my astrological analysis, you are just becoming aware of freedoms that have not previously been on your radar screen. And as soon as you register the full impact of what they entail and how much fun they would be, you’ll be wildly motivated to bring them into your life. <Zb^c^(May 21–June 20): I’m providing you with three metaphorical brainteasers. I hope they will help you work your chutzpah back into shape now that you’re on the road to recovery. 1. Was your fright attack provoked by a venomous snake or by a garden hose that resembled a venomous snake? 2. After your pratfall, when you heard one hand clapping, did you regard it as an unforgivable insult or a humorous teaching? 3. When your healing crisis finally climaxed in a cure, was the catalyst a placebo or real medicine? Please answer these riddles even if you’ve already begun to feel fine again. It’ll help ensure that the healing will last a long time. 8VcXZg( June 21–July 22): The joke goes like this: “Why is a math book so sad? Because it has so many problems.” But of course that’s a distortion of the truth. In fact, the math book loves its problems. Its problems are its reason for being. Besides that, all of its problems are interesting challenges, not frustrating curses. Best of all, every problem has a definite answer, and all the answers are provided in the back of the book. Now here’s the most excellent news of all, Cancerian: I think you’ll be like a math book in the coming weeks. AZd( July 23–Aug. 22): “Dear Rob Brezsny: I really

didn’t like a recent horoscope you wrote for me. I’m a Leo, and although your oracle was sort of true, I didn’t want it to be true, and furthermore I didn’t want to lend my belief energy to help make it true. So I went hunting among the other signs, hoping to find a different horoscope that appealed more to the healthiest aspect of my fantasy life. I settled on the ‘scope for Cancer, as it piqued my interest with just the right hopeful twist, and provided a highly motivating kick in the butt. Thanks!” —Picky Choosy Dear Picky Choosy: I approve of your efforts. These days I would love all of my Leo readers to be as imperious as you’ve been in gathering only the influences you want, and shedding the rest.

K^g\d(Aug. 23–Sept. 22): The scenario I’m about to describe is likely to happen only in your dreams or fantasies, not your actual waking life. But it will later have a correlation in your waking life, and perhaps will be instrumental in preparing you mentally and emotionally for the triumph you’ll be able to accomplish in your waking life. So here it is, the mythic tale that I foresee unfolding in the subtle realms: A python will slither up and begin to coil around you. With an apparently irrational instinct that turns out to be quite smart, you will hiss loudly and then bite the snake, causing it to slip away and leave you alone. A^WgV(Sept. 23–Oct. 22): According to my analysis of the omens, you would really benefit from a baptism right about now. Consider these questions as you design the ritual. Should you seek the help of a religious official, or do it yourself ? Should the baptism be conducted in a Christian, pagan, Jewish, atheist, Buddhist, Hollywood or free-form style? Is it enough just to sprinkle your head or should you go for full immersion? And if you choose the latter, will the dunking be more authentic if it’s in a frigid

river rather than a warm bath? These issues are for you to decide, not me. I insist only on this: Let the holy water wash you free of guilt, remorse, and any habit of mind that tricks you into being mean or careless toward yourself.

HXdge^d(Oct. 23–Nov. 21): After actor Woody

Harrelson allegedly assaulted a paparazzo at New York’s La Guardia Airport, he issued a press release claiming it was an honest mistake. He had just completed filming Zombieland, a film in which his character had to relentlessly fight off zombies. It was understandable, he reasoned, that he mistook the pushy photographer for a zombie and naturally felt compelled to defend himself forcefully. As you shift back and forth between reality bubbles in the coming week, Scorpio, make sure you don’t make a similar error. Keep clearly in mind that the laws of nature in one bubble may be quite different from the laws in the others.

HV\^iiVg^jh(Nov. 22–Dec. 21): I’m not necessarily saying you fell into a hole a while back, but if you did, the time is right to extricate yourself. Your strength is returning and help is in the neighborhood. Likewise, I’m not making an authoritative pronouncement that you did indeed cast a little curse on yourself during a careless moment. But if something like that did occur, you’re entering an excellent phase to undo the mistake. You’re awakening to how you went awry, and that’s the first crucial step in correcting for the messy consequences.

8Veg^Xdgc(Dec. 22–Jan. 19): “There are two things to aim at in life,” wrote essayist Logan Pearsall Smith. “First to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.” You are currently in a position, however, to accomplish that magical second aim, Capricorn. More than ever before, you have the power to want what you actually have . . . to enjoy the fruits of your labors . . . to take your attention off the struggle so that you may fully love the experiences your struggle has earned you.

6fjVg^jh( Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Scientists find

previously unknown species of plants and animals all the time, usually consisting of tiny populations in remote locations. But the latest addition to the great catalog of life is a species whose members number in the millions and cover a huge swath of Ethiopia. It’s a tree that botanists have never had a name for until now: Acacia fumosa. Unlike other acacias, it produces pink blooms in the dry season instead of yellow or pink flowers in the wet season. I predict that you will soon have a comparable experience, Aquarius: You’ll “discover” and identify a unique wellspring that has been around forever but unknown to you. As you tap into its charms, I trust that you will make up for lost time.

E^hXZh(Feb. 19–March 20): In her column “Word

Fugitives” in The Atlantic, Barbara Wallraff asked her readers to coin terms or phrases that would mean “the unfortunate telling of a story that one realizes too late is ill-suited to the occasion.” The best ideas were “blabberghasted,” “tale of whoa” and “put my faux paw in my mouth.” I’ll warn you to be wary of this behavior in the coming week, Pisces. You’re likely to be unusually articulate, and your urge to express yourself may be extraordinarily pressing. That could make you susceptible to running your mouth. But as long as you monitor yourself for signs that you’re about to go too far, I bet your fluency will serve you very well.

Sure thing, Scott—maybe this will tide you over till the next car wreck. Air embolism, as the MDs call air in the bloodstream, can definitely kill you. The mechanism of death or injury depends on the size of the air embolus (the bubble) and where it lodges in the body. One way is akin to vapor lock, an automotive problem in the beaters of my youth. If vapor developed in the fuel line, the engine died. If an air bubble gets into a blood vessel, so might you. I’ll explain that shortly, but first we need to understand how air gets into the blood in the first place. We’ve discussed some bizarre routes here in the past, but the most common is air entering accidentally via injection or IV tube, or when blood vessels are cut during surgery. Another possibility arises during ascent after scuba diving, where an increase in air volume in the lungs pushes tiny bubbles of air into the bloodstream that expand as you rise. Here we need to distinguish between little bubbles and big ones, because they do damage in different ways. Small bubbles can block capillaries in vital organs, most urgently the brain, causing anything from pain and inflammation to neurological damage and paralysis. A small bubble impedes blood flow the same way a solid obstruction would—the bubble’s surface tension relative to its size is too great for the force of blood to break it up or shove it along. Bad? Yes. Fatal? Probably not, although see below. A big bubble, on the other hand, gets us into the vapor lock scenario. Your heart, like the fuel pump in an old car, is a simple mechanical device. In ordinary operation, its contracting chambers squeeze the blood out and force it through the circulatory system. All is well. Now imagine a massive air embolus shows up and your heart starts squeezing on that. There’s nothing to get any purchase on; the air just compresses. Blood flow stops, and eventually so does your heart. It also makes a difference where the air bubbles enter. Emboli from injections or IVs are typically confined to veins, but if a bubble ends up in your arteries (which can happen if you have the double misfortune of air in your veins plus a fairly common congenital heart defect), then the bubble can block your coronary arteries or the blood supply to your brain. The former type of blockage, at least, can mean death.

How much air is needed to kill you? That’s debatable and doubtless varies, but generally speaking, a lot. One journal article I saw boldly declared that 300 milliliters can be lethal— three-tenths of a liter! You’d need a bicycle pump to inject that. But much less will do the trick; it’s said serious damage can result from as little as 20 milliliters, which still isn’t a small amount. In 1949 New Hampshire physician Hermann Sander ended the life of a terminal cancer patient by injecting her with 40 milliliters of air—four syringes of 10 milliliters each. (He called it a mercy killing when arrested but on the stand improbably claimed that he thought the patient was already dead; at any rate he was acquitted.) But people have survived much larger amounts. French doctors reported in 2006 on an 82-year old man scheduled for a CAT scan who was supposed to get 90 milliliters of contrast solution but instead got 90 milliliters of empty syringe. Prompt treatment with pure oxygen saved him. Despite the uncertainties, air embolism has served as a reasonably dependable method of execution. After public outcry stopped Nazi gassing of mental patients in 1941, psychiatric institutions were ordered to continue so-called mercy killings by less conspicuous means. A program described as “wild euthanasia” began at the Meseritz-Obrawalde hospital in 1942, with doctors selecting the victims and nurses doing the deed. While most of the murders were carried out with overdoses of sedatives, some patients were injected with air, which usually killed them within minutes. Though thousands of patients died, at trial years after the war 14 nurses claimed they were just following orders and were acquitted. Decades later Germany saw another rash of murders-by-embolism when a nurse confessed to injecting an estimated 60 to 130 milliliters of air into the veins of 15 seriously ill elderly patients. All died. So maybe not 100 percent lethal. But lethal enough.
