B63 6=:3 B@CB6 District 27 assemblyman and Budget Committee member Bill Monning says Democrats have identified an extra $3-4 billion in revenue to help fill the gap—but the gap keeps growing.

No Plan B 0G 83AA71/ :CAA3<6=>


gouge holes out of the 2011–12 and 2012–13 budgets. The most clear and present danger for this year’s budget is the failure of Prop. 1C, which promises $5 billion in money borrowed against future lottery profits, along with of Props. 1D and 1E, which would contribute a little less than $1 billion redirected from the First Five early childhood programs and mental health services. Those losses would be tacked onto the shortfall LAO already sees coming. “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,� said former assemblyman and Budget Committee chairman John Laird last week—and that was before the governor had weighed in with the fresh bad news, which puts the total up to $21 billion. “The stakes are high,� said Current Budget Committee member Monning. “There’s kind of no Plan B.� But with an $8 billion to $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,� 3'


This Tuesday, voters weigh in on a crucial state rescue package. If it fails, what comes next is anybody’s guess. OOR, POOR special election propositions. So unpopular even the proponents are asking Californians to vote yes in a hangdog, best-of-a-bad situation kind of way. “I’ve been describing the ballot measures as crisis management.

Even if all the budget measures are approved.� The projected deficit has been yawning slowly back open as tax revenues trickle in even more feebly than anticipated. The damage for next fiscal year has been estimated by the Legislative Analyst’s Office to be more than $8 billion. 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, Prop. 1A (which would increase the state “rainy day� fund and extend some taxes) and 1B (which would repay schools from back losses in Prop. 98 funds) 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, education money and as a step toward calming the state’s budget volatility. Monning agrees: he says the revenues that go away in two years without Prop. 1A will

Currents. PLAN B 1 $ says Ross. “There’s a lot of talking behind closed doors, not a lot in public.� Gov. Schwarzenegger has mentioned a plan to cut $80.8 million from CalFire—right at the start of fire season in a drought year—if the propositions fail, and though that may be an attempt to scare up some more votes for the propositions, huge cuts will certainly have to be made when the guv comes back with a revised budget sometime in late May or even June. Last week Monning said he and his fellow Democrats had already put 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 said. “We were able to capture some of it through mechanisms with the Department of Corrections,

an early release program. We looked at some revenueneutral 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—fee increases can be passed by a simple majority vote, bypassing the Republican votes needed for the two-thirds supermajority required for raising taxes— 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 $16 billion or $21 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 an attempt to balance the budget, and in time for the July 1 deadline, though Laird says he can easily see the process dragging beyond that. Some fear that cuts on the backs of cuts will reach into that final frontier of services: public safety. “The governor is articulating that there’s no way out of this without cutting everybody,â€? says Monning. “We can’t protect any one sector with this big a deficit.â€? Last week, the governor tossed out another sweatinducing missive. If the ballot measures are not approved, the state will have to raid local governments’ alreadydiminished coffers, a move the Sentinel reported last week could ask local leaders to make a cumulative total of $16.7 million in additional cuts, mostly on the county level. “You’re robbing Peter to pay Paul,â€? says Laird.

Reduced, Unused: Recycling State budget woes cripple a recycling program for Monterey Bay area apartment complexes 0G 8/7;3 </0@G<A97


E’RE a trashy people, we Americans, generating up to 56 tons of ripped sofas, hamburger wrappers, decapitated Barbie dolls and other garbage annually. In an attempt to curb that figure locally, Ecology Action took on a target population: the roughly 53 percent of area people who rent. In February 2008 the local environmental organization used a

$1.5 million grant awarded by the state Department of Conservation to jump-start comprehensive recycling programs in 100 apartment complexes in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. Twelve local trash haulers and waste agencies pitched in to help. Because multifamily housing complexes are considered commercial real estate, they are not automatically equipped with recycling bins

(although many proactive property managers have had them installed). In order to bring each unit up to date, the team systematically distributed bins during educational community meetings within each complex that provided tenants with everything from free oneon-one instruction to cookies and juice. These hives of eco-friendly information offered hints 3

Currents. 1 ' on reappropriating discarded items, revealed the benefits of composting and debunked common misconceptions about recycling (no, wax milk cartons and cardboard boxes saturated with pizza sauce are not acceptable candidates). Spirits soared after the completion of the first phase: 31 of the 45 targeted complexes received 2,300 household bins, Dumpstersize recycling containers to receive household recyclables and enough outreach materials to divert an estimated 191 tons of unnecessary refuse for the year. But cause for celebration was soon eclipsed by the harsh realities of a stressed state budget. A little over a year after the program began, the DOC issued a stopwork order so that the fuel behind the grant—a pot of money made up of the unclaimed cash redemption value of soda cans and beer bottles— could be reprioritized. The California state budget crisis had struck again. “We had just finished phase one, just about

Until this point, Ecology Action had been footing the bill for the workshops and infrastructure, banking on compensations through the grant.

not the only defeat. She watched the loss ripple through her staff, the 12 haulers and countless other hardworking environmental organizations throughout California. At present, the responsibility of maintaining the recycling programs falls onto the property managers and tenants—no problem, at least in theory, for the 31 complexes that made it under the wire. “All of phase one is able to participate in the program like nothing has happened,â€? Brooks assures. “They are not aware of the funding stoppage.â€? Residents’ and managers’ committed participation, coupled with the dedication of the hauling and waste agencies that remain onboard, should sustain the agendas already implemented. Brooks is optimistic that the 60 or so phase two and three complexes will continue forward, if slowly. “For the most part they have all voiced that they want to keep going,â€? she says. She adds that the deflation of the grant that was originally intended to last until June 30, 2010, is not necessarily permanent, but like a lot of other worthwhile programs in California today, it’s not guaranteed either. “It will depend a lot on the [May 19] special election,â€? she says.

Square Dancing for Chaos


ITH hundreds of establishmentfighters in town over the weekend for the first annual Santa Cruz Anarchist Convergence, event organizers needed some exciting activities to set the mood. So besides the obligatory punk show and bike tour, the convergence leaders at Free Skool Santa Cruz decided that an Anarchy Square Dance would be the perfect way to kick off a weekend full of system-bucking and rebellion-spreading. After all, nothing says anarchy like a traditional Western dance controlled by a single omnipotent caller and made up of established rules and gender roles. Putting the irony aside, I donned my finest grubby Tshirt and headed over to the Pacific Cultural Center on Friday to check out the festivities. Inside, the air was rife with radical ideas and pungent with patchouli. About 40 participants, mostly 20- to 30-year-olds, were watching a

be-dreaded and barefoot instructor attempt to teach the details of this most geometrically flawless of dances. “Gents to the center!� he cried out, pausing to offering the disclaimer, “whether you consider yourself a gent or a lady.� No sooner had I dropped my backpack to the ground to root around in it for my camera than a cheery young chaos-seeker skipped over and demanded that I dance. Not one to argue with a determined woman, I joined the boogie and was soon promenading and do-si-do-ing with the best of ’em. Over the bluegrass stylings of the Wilder Creek String Band, the gymnasium was rocking with the sound of flapping feet and giddy laughter. It was then, however, when I went to retrieve my previously abandoned camera, that the anarchist party elders took notice of my doings and demanded I leave. “We’ve decided that we don’t want mainstream

media covering our events, so we’re going to have to ask you to leave,� said a burly and frowning woman who refused to give her name. “We’re not interested in having a conversation with you.� At first I was both flattered and offended by being called “mainstream media,� and I took a moment to let the notion sink in. Afterward, however, as I was being ushered off the property, the thought occurred to ask why a grassroots movement committed to spreading a message of radical change wouldn’t want its ideas aired in a local newspaper, but would rather throw a reporter out and leave him with nothing to write about besides the unpleasant experience of being 86’d by a bunch of social malcontents. Unfortunately, all I managed to say was, “You know, I’m still going to write about this, right?� To which one member of my escort replied, “Wait— he can do that?�

They’re working on it every day and they’re close. I taught at MIT for three years after Harvard and the students there would refer to themselves as “tools.� I was stunned that they would do that, but as it turned out it was a kind of a half-ironic, half-tragic realization of their being MIT students and engineers—just cogs in the machine. Coming from Harvard, we would have to teach them things to say at cocktail parties for which they would never be invited.

The Bluesman Cometh Kenny Wayne Shepherd talks guitars, tradition and B.B. King


0G 1C@B7A 1/@B73@

T WOULD BE easy to say Kenny Wayne Shepherd was always meant to play the blues. A Louisiana native born to musicindustry-connected parents, he went to his first concert, a Muddy Waters and

John Lee Hooker double bill, at age 3, got his first guitar at 7 and signed his first record deal at 16. While he was still in high school he palled around with seasoned bluesmen like Bryan Lee and B.B. King, and he got his first glimpse of the spotlight at one of his home state’s most renowned music festivals. By all accounts Shepherd has lived a charmed life in music. Yet to write off his ascent into the elite realm of guitar virtuosos as simply a fulfillment of advantage and destiny would be to ignore the countless hours he spent practicing Stevie Ray Vaughan licks or the endless nights he spent sweating under the lights of smoky bars and backwoods amphitheaters. Shepherd’s accomplishments aren’t diminished for having had the gears of his career greased at birth; after all, there is nothing more plentiful in the world than 075 0=G 0:C3 !Podf!lopxo!bt!b!uffobhf!hvjubs!qifopn-!Lfooz!Xbzof!Tifqifse!!

As Shepherd, now 31, puts it, “My career was no accident.� And when he shows up to rock the Santa Cruz Blues Festival on May 23, he’ll be bringing the same God-given gift that got him labeled a genius and a prodigy as a teenager—only now the kid is all grown up and that gift has evolved into a wellhoned craft.

Guitar Hero Listen to any Kenny Wayne Shepherd track and it becomes immediately clear that this is guitar music. It starts with the volume. Shepherd mixes his music, both onstage and in-studio, with his guitar channel turned up to Jimi Hendrix levels. “Lyrics are still really important,� he assures, but for him, his music will always be won and lost by the ax. “My music is and will always be about the guitar,� he says from his home in Southern California. “I think for a while there, popular music got away from showcasing guitarists. But I think music is cyclical, and I think you’re now seeing some of the new bands start to bring back the guitar to the forefront. For me, though, my guitar has always been what its all about.� But while Shepherd doesn’t flinch at hearing his music described as “guitaroriented,� that’s about the only label he allows. As a teen, he says, too much significance was placed on his age and his looks. A kid in an old man’s world,

he heard terms like “wonderchildâ€? and “babyfaceâ€? thrown around regularly, and it wasn’t until he’d been touring for several years and had a pair of successful records under his belt that a majority of critics and colleagues began to judge his music objectively. “Early on, a lot of the attention was on my age. At this point, though, it’s not about my age or my looks. My musical ability speaks for itself,â€? he says. “My career has been going for 16 years and I’m still making records, still touring. I think I’ve gotten to the point where my music is what’s important.â€? Shepherd’s latest LP, 2007’s Grammynominated 10 Days Out, is not a typical album. As much a filmed documentary as a live audio release, the disc chronicles an impromptu 10-day blues road trip involving Shepherd, a tour bus, a handful of Southern towns and a starstudded assembly of more than a dozen blues standard-bearers. Cootie Stark, Etta Baker, Pinetop Perkins, B.B. King and Buddy Flett join 13 other music legends who, aside from laying down blistering performances in backyards, churches and clubs big and small, take a shot at explaining how they “got the blues.â€? Shepherd says the 10 days he spent trucking around the South with these musicians changed his career and life. Yet not everyone who got on the bus that summer is still alive today, and a hint of sadness creeps into Shepherd’s voice when he talks about people like Stark, ¨

Tutelage of the King The headliner of this year’s Santa Cruz Blues Festival is none other than the king of blues himself, B.B. King. For Shepherd, seeing King strum his 60year-old Gibson “Lucille� is a familiar pleasure. The iconic guitar maestro, ranked by Rolling Stone as No. 3 on its list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,� took an interest in Shepherd’s career early on. “B.B. King is like a father to me,� says Shepherd. “I’ve been playing with him since I was 15 years old. Over the years we’ve established a significant friendship, and he just treats me like I’m part of his family. He’s really taken me under his wing, so to speak. I just have a tremendous respect for him both as a musician and as a person. He’s the kind of guy that if you wanted to give your kids a role model, he’d fit the bill.� Blues music is filled with stories like Shepherd’s. Salty old hands like King, Perkins and Otis Rush have helped to usher in the next generation of blues musicians. With older and deeper roots and traditions than more contemporary styles of music like hip-hop and rock, blues music clings to values like respecting elders and passing down oral histories, and has thus remained less tainted by corporate greed and marketing influences. But the blues isn’t just stubborn old black men, gravelly voices and harmonicas. A recent influx of young indie bands like the Black Keys, Kings of Leon and the White Stripes are bringing droves of fresh fans to the genre. And even old-school blues shows like the Santa Cruz Blues Festival are still known for drawing a diverse crowd of people of all ages and walks of life. And when King wraps up his headlining set in Aptos next week, Shepherd says there might be a special treat for those who stick around. “Usually whenever B.B. and I share a bill together there’s a jam session that goes on sometime at the end,� he says. “I love playing with him and the fans usually love it. Definitely worth checking out.� At 83 years old, however, King may not be headlining many more blues festivals. Shepherd knows this perhaps


better than anyone, having lost several friends and musicians in the last few years, and he warns B.B. fans to “see him now.� But what King and his like have helped to plant in Shepherd and the next wave of bluesmen is not only a sense of pride and protectiveness but also an insatiable curiosity to try something new and to push the genre beyond where the last generation left it. Shepherd calls it a “natural progression.�

With older and deeper roots than hip-hop and rock, blues music clings to values like respecting elders and passing down oral histories, and has thus remained less tainted by corporate greed and marketing influences. “Blues music is timeless,� says Shepherd. “I mean rock music came from the blues. And countless other styles from that. I think there will always be something about the blues that speaks to me and speaks to the fans. There’s something real, something honest, something good.�

ENNY Wayne Shepherd may be the prettiest musician who steps onstage at the 17th annual Santa Cruz Blues Festival in Aptos this Memorial Day weekend. But when it comes to talent, he’ll have plenty of competition, as this year’s lineup is peopled with a who’s-who of the blues from the last half-century. Topping the list and tipping the scales with more than 60 years of string-

bending, sweat-browed Mississippi blues under his belt is the inimitable 0 0 9W\U, who will be closing down the opening day of the festival on Saturday, May 23. At 83, King is an inspiration not just to music fans for his soulful songs but to people everywhere for his relentless work ethic and easy charm. On Sunday, it’ll be the sandpaperthroated British bluesman 8]S 1]QYS` holding down the headlining slot. Expect ¨

rockin’ blues from throughout his 40-year career and at least a couple of his famed Beatles covers before he signs off for the evening. Apart from the big-name headliners this year is another list of artists who could draw a festival-size crowd in their own right. Kicking off day one, Austin, Texas’s 1O`]Zg\ E]\RS`ZO\R and her funky steel guitar will get things going bright and early. Following her, Ruthie Foster, a fellow citizen of the Lone Star State, will tone things down with some soulful folk ballads. Next, a man who only had to travel a few dozen miles to get to the show, the Salinas-born, Monterey-abiding 8OQYWS 5`SS\S will be representing the Central Coast on the piano, harmonica and guitar. And finally, warming up the stage for B.B. King (and, rumor has it, joining him later for an encore) is the guitar-shredding sultan of Shreveport, 9S\\g EOg\S AVS^VS`R. On Sunday, there will be no rest for the weary as B`][P]\S AV]`bg, one of the Big Easy’s fastest-rising horn blowers, will be firing up the Orleans Avenue band at 11:30am. Bringing a country rock tinge to

the festival, :S]\ @caaSZZ and all 5 pounds of his snow-white beard will set up behind the piano next. And on deck before Mr. Cocker, L.A.’s funky blues king 9SP¸ ;]¸ will be keeping the crowd pumped with danceable harmonica-soaked jams. Throughout the festival, which happens once again at Aptos Village Park, meet-and-greet tents will be set up for autographs; food vendors will serve up barbecue, Cajun, Mexican and Southern food, and beer booths will dole out suds by the gallon. Kids are welcome, and a “children’s entertainment areaâ€? will offer face painting and balloon sculpting to keep the small fry occupied. Parking is free, low-back lawn chairs are allowed and sunscreen is recommended, while dogs, coolers and home-brought booze will have to wait outside. A/<B/ 1@CH 0:C3A 43AB7D/: happens Saturday–Sunday, May 23–24, at Aptos Village Park. Tickets still available: general $60 each day/$100 two-day pass; kids $25 each day/$40 two-day pass.

;SRWc[ O\R ;SaaOUS From Front Street downtown, a pedestrian bridge brings visitors over the river and into the festival. The bridge is vibrant with 110 flapping flags made by students in Kathleen Croscetti’s Mission Hill Middle School art class. They spent a semester on the 350 Project—“350 parts per million—the carbon footprint that the human population needs to achieve in order to sustain a livable planet,� as Croscetti explains. “Each flag has something to do with 350—saving animal species, reducing energy use—it’s a great topic for the festival entrance.� Once across the bridge, festivalgoers will find a landscape of artist booths, environmental exhibits, music stages and demonstration areas, and at key

locations throughout, temporary sculptural installations by invited artists. Croscetti is one of these. Others include works representing the Pajaro Valley’s annual outdoor sculpture exhibit, “Sculpture Is,� at the Sierra Azul Nursery, including the marvelous ceramic totems by Susanna Arias. At the eastern end of the park, Eike Waltz exhibits his most recent provocative proposal for the Seymour Bridge. The 80 artists who exhibit and sell their work at the festival were selected from applicants from throughout the Western United States. A few artists long associated with the area return to Santa Cruz for this event, like Tom Killion, who captures the grandeur of the California coast in exquisite original woodblock prints in the Japanese tradition. Almost 80 percent of the artists are from Santa Cruz County. Ten of the artists will be demonstrating. This year, two music stages run the gamut of styles from Baroque to boogie. Another new development is a wine garden featuring four local vineyards, some sophisticated food choices and an acoustic stage. On the other end of the park, food booths provide an array of edibles. Throughout the grounds there will be stiltwalkers and buskers, endless opportunities to participate in

THE RIVER ARTS FESTIVAL runs Saturday–Sunday, May 16–17, 11am–6pm at San Lorenzo Park in Santa Cruz. THE KINETIC ART CRUZ happens Sunday, May 17, at 10am at the bus station parking lot on Pacific Avenue. 1=C@B3AG :7<2/ :3DG

criminal activities. But since the first River Arts Festival last year, San Lorenzo Park has become an increasingly active community space. With the recent completion of the riverway bike and strolling path that borders the park and connects the Boardwalk and beach area along the river, the number of walkers and cyclists and picnickers using the river and the park has passed the tipping point, reclaiming one of the city’s most beautiful spaces for community use. This weekend, the river is again the star of the show.

On Sunday morning, a freewheeling crowd takes over Pacific Avenue. Organizers expect an enthusiastic turnout for the second Kinetic Art Cruz, which invites the community to make people-powered art vehicles and join a parade down Pacific Avenue to the Park’s Duck Island Stage, where cash prizes will be awarded by celebrity judges. Some elaborate Burning Man– type kinetic vehicles are expected, like that of bronze sculptor Sean Monaghan, the Clank Boom Clank group is coming from Santa Rosa and local businesses are participating with creations like the Octopus’ Garden from the Staff of Life. Schools have been working on student vehicles based on bikes or skateboards. All day Saturday, Kinetic Art Cruz organizer Mia Duquet will work with the Creative Reuse organization to offer

assistance and materials for people who want to create their own art vehicle for the parade. “Alternative transportation is so important to combat global warming,� says the bike-power advocate. “Come down Saturday and let’s turn your skateboard or bike into a work of art.� Bill Tysseling, executive director of the sponsor, the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce, is enthusiastic. “This town is an ‘edge of thought’ kind of place, known for creativity and risk-taking. The festival celebrates this creative energy as well as the physical elegance of our environment—an environment that Santa Cruz has valued and protected. The organizers have put together an event that brings all this together, I think it will grow to become part of the Santa Cruz identity.�

Memorial Day Weekend

AB=@34@=<B ABG:3

May 23–25

MAYBE the best Mother’s Day gifts truly are homemade. The Goodwill store on Union Street is presenting an art show that serves two purposes: to salute moms and to promote reuse.


Goodwill Industries and the Creative Reuse Project have teamed up for this art show featuring reused and repurposed materials recombined in fascinating new ways by Daniella Woolf, Diane Roberts Ritch, J. Rosella Myers, Laura Laura, Kathleen Croscetti and Sara Friedlander. The project, headed by Barbara Schatan, promotes increased use of recycled materials in arts and education.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED More Information: 408-505-1725

The fashionable pieces on display as part of the “Smart Moms Show� are made from such items as CDs and newspapers, making it clear that even the most common of materials can make art that is both striking and meaningful. Good luck matching that next Mother’s Day. (Alex Shigenaga)

THE SMART MOMS SHOW runs through May 20 at Goodwill, 204 Union St., Santa Cruz. 831.423.8611. G]cbV 1]OZWbW]\ AO\bO 1`ch Ndji] &("'& bZZi id hdX^Va^oZ VcY ldg` dc hdX^Va _jhi^XZ VcY Zck^gdcbZciVa ^hhjZh# IjZ! *" +/(%eb# ;gZZ# GZhdjgXZ 8ZciZg [dg Cdck^daZcXZ! *&* 7gdVYlVn! HVciV 8gjo#

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

Y Tu Hermano Tambien

0G @716/@2 D=< 0CA/19


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 CuarĂłn and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu) and directed by CuarĂłn’s brother, Carlos. The film reunites Diego Luna and the criminally handsome Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal of Alfonso CuarĂłn’s Y tu MamĂĄ Tambien. Like Y tu MamĂĄ Tambien, 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, “Batonâ€? (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 U.S. reviews 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 both 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

933>7<5 A1=@3 Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal as Tato (left) meets Diego Luna as his brother Beto on the soccer field.

figures that futbol is just his day job until he can make a fortune being a cowboysuited 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 wet-dream TV starlet Maya ( Jessica Mas). Tato also lands an H-2, a fine house and even a few gigs, where he repeatedly massacres Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me.� But Beto’s degenerate 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. (Or maybe it’s to make Baton sound more like Honest John Foulfellow in Pinocchio.) 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 unhappy-happy 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.�

RUDO Y CURSI (R; 110 min.), directed and written by Carlos CuarĂłn, photographed by Adam Kimmel and starring Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal and Diego Luna, opens Friday at the Nickelodeon and Del Mar in Santa Cruz and the Aptos Theater in Aptos.

The Art of Persuasion The yin and yang of calls to action close the Santa Cruz Film Festival 0G ;=::G H/>>


T’S HARD to just let life happen,� Bhagavan Das philosophizes in What About Me?, a stunning documentary conceived and directed by concept band 1 Giant Leap members Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto. The two artists lay the foundation for the ambitious film by composing studio beats that dozens of musicians from around the world expand upon—everyone from Michael Stipe to Beijing MCs Young Kin and MC Weber to k.d. lang and a cadre of joyful people informally making song around the globe. In conjunction with the visual and aural pleasures are unscripted insights into the film’s central focus: How can one be a better human? The plethora of thoughts and answers all have a central common thread: embrace the silly painful madness of simply living joyfully. Without being preachy, draining or rushed, the film features dozens of philosophers, spiritual and religious leaders and artists—famed and otherwise—who weigh in on an impressive array of interconnected aspects of the “madness� of life. “Part of the madness is to live as if the future were more important than the present moment, which is how most people live,� says spiritual teacher and writer Eckhart Tolle. “lt’s completely insane, so you miss the aliveness of life for some projected future aliveness or fulfillment. There is no future, there is only this: the present moment.� Tim Robbins ruminates on the necessity of each person figuring out how to deal with ugly emotions without the use of drugs: “When you medicate a kid for all those years, that kid’s not learning how to deal with depression or anger,� Robbins said. The documentary is strengthened

@/C1=CA @=::7<A Outspoken punk rock icon Henry Rollins rails against biofuels, obesity and aid organizations in ‘H is for Hunger.’

by showing both the diversity and the undeniable overlap among spiritual leaders who shun organized religion and religious leaders who have found their joy in churches, temples and mosques. There is an extended take of a exuberant Gabonese Pygmy ritual, spliced with a few Pygmies calling out the history of Western documentary filmmakers’ tendency to exploit indigenous people by rolling the camera for a few hours, using the footage and never giving money back. Also examining global implications of a culture of consumption is H for Hunger, a film that features Henry Rollins, pissed off and raving as usual, this time about global starvation. There is no debate on whether the world can produce enough food to feed every single person— absolutely, unequivocally, yes. So why, as H for Hunger claims, do one out of every seven people in the world go hungry? If “greed� and “f—ed up corporate interests� are sufficient answers, the film says “enough.� H for Hunger blames the rise of corn-based ethanol for taking

“food, life-giving food, and (using) it to replace gasoline�—a claim that is not entirely accurate. The variety of corn that is used to produce ethanol is primarily fed to livestock or turned into corn syrup, not usually directly consumed by humans. To make an “ethanol equals no food for Darfur� equation is oversimplistic and ignores the reality that starvation has been killing humans long before biofuels existed. The film is highly critical of the aid organization Feed the Children and cites an American Institute of Philanthropy report that only 18 cents out of every dollar donated to Feed the Children is actually spent on food, while the bulk of the funds go to advertising and administrative costs. Along with competitive eaters and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il, overweight people are also on Rollins’ shit list. “There are now more fat people on the planet than hungry people,� Rollins barks, referring to obese humans as “millions who have spooned out too much from the common cup.�

Director Neil Hollander’s decision to have the film consist overwhelmingly of Rollins ranting against a background of thousands of starving people from some African and Asian countries dehumanizes the very malnourished humans Rollins purports to speak for. H is for Hunger gives not a single hungry person an actual voice: only the angry white American male gets to speak. For hard-core Rollins fans, this format makes for 90 minutes of heaven. For those who want the actual thoughts and experiences of people in poverty to be heard and ideas for enacting economic and food system changes discussed, the film will disappoint. As Noam Chomsky says in What About Me?, “It’s only in the wealthy privileged sectors that people have no idea what to do. Elsewhere, they do things.� 1 GIANT LEAP: WHAT ABOUT ME? screens Thursday, May 14, at 7:30pm at the Vets Hall, 809 Front St., Santa Cruz. H FOR HUNGER screens Friday, May 15, at 3pm at the same venue. Tickets are $9 general/$7 seniors and students. Visit for more info.

(R; 106 min.) The intelligence and malaise level in Adventureland are fairly high considering that the film is, deep in its bones, a barf, boner and bong teen comedy. The action is set in the summer of 1987. James (Jesse Eisenberg) is a Holden Caulfieldish privileged student expecting the European tour after graduating high school, but his father’s money has run out, and James will have to land a job

somewhere to pay for tuition to Columbia. At the amusement park called Adventureland he meets Em (Kristen Stewart), a sharp but quiet girl heading to NYU, and Joel (Martin Starr), a poverty-stricken intellectual. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig play the couple running the amusement park. (RvB) 3/@B6 (G; 90 min.)

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) 3<:756B3< C>

(Unrated; 90 min.) Director Kate Churchill’s documentary about yoga, in which her belief that it can transform anyone’s life leads her to skeptic Nick Rosen, who agrees to be her guinea pig.

131 min.) Maria Heiskanen plays a working-class Finnish mother living in Sweden in the first 20 years of the last century. She settles down with the brutish Sigfrid, called Siggi (Mikael Persbrandt), but is touched by the attentions of Pedersen (Jesper Christensen), who owns a camera store. Director Jan Troell has a great gift with this period, as he showed in The Emigrants (1971) and The New Land (1972). It took skill not to make this story a temperance melodrama. (RvB) 4756B7<5 (PG-13; 105 min.) In the future, all movies will have generic titles that describe their ingredients. Citizen Kane will be renamed Monopolizing. The Big Lebowski will be renamed Arguing. Last Tango in Paris will be

called Fucking. So this action flick starring Terrence Howard and Channing Tatum about the world of underground street fighting is way ahead of the curve. (SP) 56=ABA =4 57@:4@73<2A >/AB

(PG-13; 100 min.) Matthew McConaughey is a bachelor literally haunted by his past relationships. Sounds scary, I know, but it could be worse.

varieties of bastards, covert and overt, respectively. And yet in some ways, the film gave me the creeps worse than any Frat Packer yet; was it director John Hamburg’s beige, deracinated L.A., with its exotic excursion to Chinatown? Was it the supposedly hilarious repeated bit about Sydney refusing to curb his dog, so that everyone has to step in it? Maybe it’s just the way this and the many, many comedies like it keep doggedly patrolling the supposedly indivisible line between men and women—and making that line the biggest comedic cul-de-sac since they buried Neil Simon. (RvB) 7A /<G0=2G B63@3- (PG-13; 103

min.) This movie is about a young superstar who has trouble coping with the meteoric fame of her character Hannah Montana. So I was thinking it must be a narcissistic vanity project for Miley Cyrus—you know, “waah, my life as a spoiled child millionaire is so hard.� Turns out I’m completely wrong! The character she plays in the movie is named “Miley Stewart.� Totally different. Wow, do I feel like a Judgy Judy or what? (SP)

min.) Disappointing comedy/tragedy of an aged magician (Michael Caine) facing a final curtain in a dowdy Yorkshire retirement home during the nadir of the Thatcher years. Caine and his foil, a precocious little boy played by Bill Milner, elevate the material, but director John Crowley can’t find a tone. The terrible title shows some kind of proud antientertainment streak, a terrible lack of show business acumen that a real magician would know to avoid. (RvB)

(R; 112 min.) Nebbishy L.A. Realtor Peter (Paul Rudd) is going to get married. He doesn’t have a best man for his wedding, since he’s always been a man who preferred woman’s company. After a series of failed “man-dates,� he finds his perfect buddy, an overgrown boy of an investor named Sydney (Jason Segel, of Forgetting Sarah Marshall), but the friendship becomes obsessive to the point where Peter’s fiancee, Zooey (Rashida Jones), has enough. Rudd’s charmingly out-of-it qualities are at their best in a scene where he tries to play 007 during a tuxedo fitting. Just like jerks in real life, Sydney is refreshing in tiny doses, and Rob Huebel and Jon Favreau are good playing different

min.) Set in a tickbitten Long Island suburb during the late ’70s, Derick Martini’s deft romantic comedy follows Scott’s (Rory Culkin) seemingly hopeless thing for young Adriana (Emma Roberts); meanwhile both teens’ families are spiraling out of control. Scott’s dad, Mickey (Alec Baldwin), is a philanderer, cheating on his wife with Adriana’s mom, Melissa (Cynthia Nixon). Meanwhile, Adriana’s cuckolded father, Charlie (Timothy Hutton), pale as King Hamlet’s ghost, sweats his way through a terrific bout of Lyme disease. Despite the tendency for the grandeelike Baldwin to tip the film in his own direction, Lymelife seems one of the most

acute comedic memoirs of that bad era. (RvB) ;=<AB3@A DA /:73<A (PG; 94 min.)

Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie and Rainn Wilson voice the creatures in this animated tribute to 1950s watch-the-skies tales, which features monsters and aliens being cute. It’s a real technical feat but is hampered by a sense of restraint. (RvB) =0A3AA32 (PG-13; 109 min.) A successful guy (Idris Elba) becomes the target of a female stalker (Ali Larter), much to the chagrin of his wife (BeyoncÊ). 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. % /5/7< (PG-13; 102 min.) Matthew Perry is a thirtysomething who wishes he could be a teenager again and magically turns into Zac Efron. Coincidentally, this is also Matthew Perry’s real-life backup plan for reviving his career. (SP) A7< <=;0@3 (R; 96 min.) UCSC grad Cary Fukunaga’s startling debut concerns the crossMexico run of a doomed gangbanger (Edgar Flores) and the girl who comes to love him, Sayra (Paulina Gaitan). For a young first-time feature filmmaker, Fukunaga has succeeded at reconciling the tragedy and beauty of this life on the run. The movie contains multitudes: pearlescent dawn shots of smoking volcanoes, barrios seen from the crowded top of a freight train. There are lyrical interludes of refuge at stops along the rail yards where the travelers bathe and are fed. Be warned that this passionately told, moody film includes the horrific side of urban Mexican life. Could Sin Nombre be the first post-hip-hop urban movie? (RvB) B63 A=:=7AB (PG-

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) AB/@ B@39 (PG-13;

136 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) AB/B3 =4 >:/G (PG13; 117 min.) Good but underpowered journothriller 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) AC5/@ (R; 128

min.) (R; 120 min.) An unusually honest baseball movie; Algenis Perez Soto plays a Miguel Santos, who got his nickname, “Azucar,â€? either because of his sweet tooth or his easy way around the women. Signed up for the “Kansas City Knights,â€? he experiences culture shock in the grain belt. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck show the strangeness of a place like Iowa for a Dominican Republic ĂŠmigrĂŠ like Santos. Sugar’s adventurousness continues by bypassing both the victory and the noble failure we expect in a baseball film. (RvB) AC<A67<3 1:3/<7<5

(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 ever-lovable 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) F ;3< =@757<A( E=:D3@7<3 (PG-

13; 108 min.) Gavin Hood’s direction leaves Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber’s CGIcreated avatars either running at each other like horny rhinos or stuck in episodes of slomo stuff-strutting that would have looked novel in Hong Kong action movies of the 1990s. The final fight is more of a video game and so heavily synthesized that few moments have any punch to them. One remembers the first X-Men with Wolverine discussing his claws with Anna Paquin and how it hurt “every time.� Here, he brandishes the scimitars, striking sparks off them, like a county fair pitchman demonstrating Ginzus.

Astrology Free Will

By Rob


For the week of May 13 /@73A (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. B/C@CA (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.

53;7<7 (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. 1/<13@ (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.

:3= (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.

D7@5= (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. :70@/ (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.

A1=@>7= (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. A/57BB/@7CA (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. 1/>@71=@< (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. /?C/@7CA (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. >7A13A (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.
