affect the food chain.â&#x20AC;? Flo Tseng, director of the wildlife clinic at Tufts University in Massachusetts, agrees. She has led a team of researchers who, over the last year, have collected autopsy data for hundreds of dead birds that died in the clinic or were found in the wild. She says 87 percent of the birds that were tested showed signs of rodenticide consumption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If these kinds of poisonings are as prevalent everywhere as what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing in our study, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a serious problem,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to be aware of what these substances can do.â&#x20AC;? Tsengâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research dovetails with the EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own statistics, which show that up to 81 percent of 265 great horned owls analyzed by the agency showed exposure to anticoagulant rodenticides. In California, another EPA study showed that of 106 bobcats, mountain lions and San Joaquin kit foxes, 84 percent had also been exposed to rodenticide. According

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just birds and wildlife that are threatened by these toxins.

In agricultural areas, rodenticides are used on a massive scale. Santa Cruz County Agricultural Commissioner Ken Corbishley says rodents do very little damage to crops, but crop buyers almost always require the farmers to use rodenticides as part of a contractual agreement. He says the idea of changing these practices rarely comes up when he talks with farmers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard farmers talking about getting rid of [chemical rodenticides],â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really talked about.â&#x20AC;? Dmytryk, meanwhile, says she hopes to get people thinking about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people realize that our beautiful birds and mammals are in danger from something as easily fixed as rodenticide, I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wake up,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore it anymore.â&#x20AC;?

Code Warriors

New county appeals board in open rebellion against Planning Department 0G83AA71/:CAA3<6=>


T SEEMED as if plenty of folks at Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly Building, Accessibility and Fire Code Appeals Board meeting were anticipating fireworks, including a sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy who said, very sweetly, that he was there to â&#x20AC;&#x153;keep an eye on things.â&#x20AC;? Though the tone of the meeting remained relatively calm, Supervisor Neal Coonerty opened oral communications with some choice words for a board of appointees that has proven exceptionally independent-minded: last week, BAFCAB member Daniel Bronson called a meeting to hear an appeal on a project by architect Cove Britton, a routine thingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;except that the Planning Department had already deemed the matter outside the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jurisdiction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any suggestion that the BAFCAB is not answerable to anyone, including the Board of Supervisors, is . . . erroneous,â&#x20AC;? Coonerty read from a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A member who believes that they cannot carry out his or her official duties in a manner consistent with the policies and regulations approved by the Board of Supervisors should reconsider his or her continued participation as an appointee.â&#x20AC;? Though no rotten fruit began to fly, neither the audience nor the BAFCAB board seemed to take this advice well, especially in light of the fact that former chairman Michael Bethke had apparently done just that early last week, writing in his resignation letter that he was incensed by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;brusque and condescending attitudesâ&#x20AC;? of county planning management. David Parks, who took Bronsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vicechairman position last week after Bethkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure opened the top slot, responded with a declaration of fealty to the highest principles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Coonerty suggested I can resign,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[But] I have an obligation to do what I feel is state law. I have to be true to myself.â&#x20AC;? Though last Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;rogueâ&#x20AC;? meeting was canceledâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;according to Bronson because Britton withdrew on advice from his attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the electrical engineer and new BAFCAB chairman says his board had every right to consider the appeal. Bronson is concerned that the Planning Department is violating state law by acting as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;gatekeeperâ&#x20AC;? to what the board should and shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to open the door to handle our responsibilities in an open and legal

way. The Planning Department is behind the door leaning on it with county counsel aiding,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to put the fox in charge of the henhouse.â&#x20AC;? Planning director Tom Burns stresses that BAFCAB is limited to hearing appeals on technical issues that arise in the building permit process, not on code enforcement, and says this is just the latest in a long fight between county residents who think the Planning department is overly prescriptive and heavy-handed with stop-work red tags, which BAFCAB has no authority over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, the Board of Supervisors is still in charge,â&#x20AC;? Burns says. Not so, says BAFCAB member and architect Marty Fiorovich, who says the limited power of her board is a potential violation of California State Building Code 108.8, which says in general language that appeals should be considered by members not employed by the jurisdiction. While Fiorovich says that she got involved in the reinstatement of the appeals board because she thought state law was being ignored, Bronson says he came to his position with no preconceived notions. He says that hearing the frustration of people like Britton has inspired him to look more closely at the law. Though neither of the other board members, civil engineer Richard Irish or Parks, was available to comment, the board voted unanimously to form a subcommittee to send recommendations to the Board of Supervisors in the next two weeks on the legality of the codes dictating BAFCABâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties and the Planning Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compliance with law. Supervisor Ellen Pirie, who was briefly in attendance at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, says she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting the controversy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I certainly thought by forming this board that there would be a very clear appeals outlet for building code and fire code. I thought it had sort of been taken care of, but it appears not,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We probably have to do something. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just let it happen if we think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re violating the law or bringing some kind of liability on the county.â&#x20AC;? What happens next is a matter of opinion. While some whisper that the board may be axed, Bronson insists that county code can be made state-compliant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It still can work,â&#x20AC;? he says. Ă

gone, but for now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m content with the new ordinance.â&#x20AC;? Until early 2008, Santa Cruz hosted three hookah parlors. Today, both Madaniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shop and the Giza Hookah Lounge on Mission Street have closed their doors, leaving the Smoke This! parlor on Laurel Street next to the Santa Cruz Teen Center the only hookah house in town. Despite its close proximity to the Teen Center, under the new laws, Smoke This! will be grandfathered in and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be forced to leave. Any future parlors, however, would be effectively banned from the downtown business district, as they must keep 1,000 feet away from schools, parks and recreation areas, leaving few places in the city where they would be allowed.

Smoke and Fears

Santa Cruz cracks down on hookah bars 0G1C@B7A1/@B73@


HE SANTA CRUZ City Council is not a fan of hookah parlors. Last Tuesday, city leaders took all of three minutes to discuss and approve a set of tough new restrictions that outlaws hookah parlors from setting up shop near schools and parks, and also caps the number of parlors allowed in city limits at two. The new laws come in addition to previous regulations that keep hookah parlors from serving food or beveragesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; including waterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and from having live music. For councilmembers like Katherine

Beiers and Don Lane, the parlors, which offer flavored tobacco for smoking in communal water pipes, represent an unhealthy activity for residents and a dangerous influence for kids. But for hookah parlor owners like Nathan Madani, the new laws are just one more swipe against personal freedoms and entrepreneurs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I opened Madaniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hookah Parlor we got all kinds of trouble from the city,â&#x20AC;? says Madani from Hollywood, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relocated his hookah business after closing his North Pacific Avenue store last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted to make an example of

me because I was the only one in town at the time. I lost around $30,000 just doing floor plan requirements for the city. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfair.â&#x20AC;? At the crux of the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision is a recent report by the World Health Organization that describes a single hookah smoking session as equal to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cigarette smoker inhaling 100 or more cigarettes.â&#x20AC;? Councilmember Beiers went so far as to say sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like the parlors banned altogether. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously unhealthy and not something I think we should be supporting,â&#x20AC;? says Beiers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sure, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like them

Any future parlors would be effectively banned from the downtown business district, as they must keep 1,000 feet away from schools, parks and recreation areas, leaving few places in the city where they would be allowed. A manager at Smoke This! was reluctant to give his thoughts on the new regulations. He did say, however, that business was better since his competitors left town. Madani, meanwhile, says he has a few words of advice for anyone considering opening Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second hookah parlor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do your homework, be ready to spend a lot of money. And good luck finding a building,â&#x20AC;? he says. Ă

Inside the Pornocopia These days, teens navigate a world with porn a-plenty, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fine with them 0G83AA71/:CAA3<6=>


OUR TEENAGE BOYS are gathered around a chessboard in the Ugly Mug Coffeehouse in Soquel having a civilized conversation about pornography. As he mulls his next move, Chris Burrhus, a straight-talking 18-year-old with a goatish beard tufting from his chin, recalls some of his earliest dabbling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In junior high, I started printing out porn and bringing it to school. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know why,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ooh, aah,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put it away. It

wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really sexual stimulation, it was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not supposed to at school.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;? Never was that so clear to him as when he was dragged into the principalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office on an unrelated charge with a half-inch-thick stack of smut in his bag. Terrified he would be searched, he ended up â&#x20AC;&#x153;dumping it in the vice principalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trash can,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then she came in and decided to eat an apple. She was peeling it into the trash. I was halfway shitting myself.â&#x20AC;?




may 20-27, 2009 A/<B/1@CH1=;

1=D3@j>=@<=1=>7/ Luckily for preteen Chris, the vice principal never looked down into the trash, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly learn his lesson. Now he trades chess pieces and porn parables with his 17- and 18-yearold friends with the utmost candor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our social group has overused the access,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is certainly past the point of being new to us.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have 140 gigs of porn on my computer,â&#x20AC;? one of his friends says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was going to put it all on an external hard drive and pass it to all my friends. And I said this in front of my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents.â&#x20AC;? This is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, his frankness is astounding. Second, this very nice boy with the 140 gigs of pornography gives his first and last name to include in this article. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to print it here. The truth is, even though he seems to be a very mature 17-year-old, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not entirely sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thought about the fact that the day this story hits the web, any prospective employer, dean or girlfriend who Googles his name will find the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;140 gigs of pornographyâ&#x20AC;? in the same sentence. That intuitive mistrust of teenage instincts is at the crux of this entire story. It is easier than ever to watch, create and share pornographic images and text, and as the first generation of web-savvy teenagers who have always had the instant gratification of DSL, who get cell phones as soon as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re old enough to talk and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never used air quotes with the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;blog,â&#x20AC;? their knowledge can easily be applied to creating their own porno paradise. Which leads to the question, can this be bad for them? If cigarettes stunt your growth, does porn stunt your soul? Naturally, adults are freaking out. In 1997, Phillipe Kahn sent the first pointclick-and-send cell phone photo from a hospital here in Santa Cruz minutes after the birth of his daughter. In 2009, district attorneys are prosecuting teenagers as sex offenders for sending nude photos of one another using that same technology. Somewhere between innovation and titillation, technology is moving faster than adults can keep tabs on it, and the debate over how much access is really good for teenagers is raising parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blood pressure. As the girl in that first-ever cell phone photo is about to enter her teens, we set out to ask adolescents and the doctors who study them what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like living in a porno paradise.

Porn Pups On the second floor of the Teen

Center in downtown Santa Cruz, Jane*, a 16-year-old Harbor High student, considers the concept of â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexting,â&#x20AC;? or sending naked photos via cell phone. Behind her is a row of computers with signs posted nearby that read NO PORNOGRAPHY. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my high school, technology isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily openly used as much for sexually explicit stuff, but more for cheating on tests,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or during a fight, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no effort to be protective of your fellow peer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Who can bust their phone out quicker and post that video on YouTube?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have 140 gigs of porn on my computer. I was going to put it all on an external hard drive and pass it to all my friends. And I said this in front of my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That said, Jane, along with a small sample of extremely gracious local teenagers ranging in age from 14 to 18, conceded that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sought out or at least seen Internet pornography. Most were given access to a personal or family computer between the ages of 9 and 14, and it took a year or two after logging on for the first time to find sexually explicit material. One boy says he started seeking it out as early as 11 years old. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in good company: recent surveys show somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 percent of adolescents report theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen pornography while surfing the Internet. Furthermore, they think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no big deal. A 2008 study found that twothirds of college-age men and one-half of women think viewing pornography is acceptable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people I know are decently open about it. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as open as [I am], but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re certainly not closed,â&#x20AC;? says 17-year-old Will Canant.


A/<B/1@CH1=; may 20-27, 2009 1=D3@AB=@G 

If there was a common thread in each interview, it was nonchalance and acceptance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is happening basically every day for students in high school,â&#x20AC;? says Matt, a 15-year-old Santa Cruz High student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother me. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly have negative thoughts against that type of thing.â&#x20AC;? Another 18-year-old girl confesses that she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shocked when her 15year-old brother told her he looks up pornography on classroom computers when the teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back is turned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to it now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finished high school,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps unsurprisingly, none of the more active young connoisseurs felt their porn proclivities were inflicting psychological damage on them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More access is not a bad thing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not exactly sure if it could be a thing that influences you to be a bad person,â&#x20AC;? says 17-year-old Matthew, a home-school student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It depends on your nature.â&#x20AC;? His friend Kendall Castleman agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people who will see it as an opportunity to be themselves, and there are people who will see it as a tool to exploit people,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really depends on the person.â&#x20AC;?

Evidence Inconclusive Dr. Neil Malamuth, a professor of communication and psychology at UCLA, knows firsthand why studying sex, teenagers and technology is so fraught with peril. You have to apply your findings to your own kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At one time, my son was about 15, 14, and I went with him to San Francisco and we checked into a hotel, into two different rooms,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bellhop said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, should I disallow the sexually explicit movies in this room?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, yeah, you should.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My son got very upset, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What right do you have?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Malamuth also insisted that his son attend a panel discussion he was participating in the next day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So then he comes to my talk, and the first speaker was a radical feminist who was talking about very extreme porn. She showed samples of it.â&#x20AC;? He laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sitting in the audience and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smiling,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you try to apply this to your own children you have to consider real world situations.â&#x20AC;? Despite the failure of his personal policies, Malamuth soldiered on and has studied one possible consequence of heavy porn usage: sexually aggressive behavior. After 37 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of research, he has found that Matt and Kendallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intuitive assumptions may be true.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;First of all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaccurate to try to make a simple generalization across the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;porn is good, porn is bad,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it comes to effects that we can label as undesirable and antisocial, then it seems to depend on the content of the pornography and very much the profile of the person.â&#x20AC;? Malamuth says a constellation of certain factors can result in a sexually maladjusted person and seem to rely more heavily on the predisposition due to negative factors like a narcissistic personality, hostile feelings toward women, violence in the home or aggression between oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By and large, the answer is, if a person is high on multiple risk factors, heavy consumption of pornography does add fuel to the fire,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who are not at a particular risk of committing sexually aggressive acts, whether or not they are heavy pornography users doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much of a difference.â&#x20AC;? Neither does risky sexual behavior in teenagers seem to correlate with the rise in technology, according to Dr. Douglas Kirby, a senior research scientist at ETR Associates in Scotts Valley who has studied adolescent sexual risk behavior for over 30 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not the case that all the changes that have taken place in society, including much greater access to pornography, have led to an increase in sexual behavior,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s and the early 2000s the percent of young people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had sex did not increase.â&#x20AC;? A study by the Centers for Disease Control shows that from 1991 to 2007, the number of adolescents in grades 9 through 12 who have had sex at least once dipped 16 percent, from 54.1 percent to 47.8 percent. Along with it went the incidence of teen pregnancy among 15- to 19-year-olds, which dropped 38 percent from 1990 to 2004 (in California in particular pregnancy rates dropped dramatically). Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too simple to say this absolves technology of any influence itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had on the sex lives of teenagers, a long-term study that explicitly asks how porn affects child and adolescent development hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet been done. Similarly, development professionals are not exactly suggesting that these materials have no effect on teenagers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to become more deviant, perverted people because of this,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Neville Golden, chief of adolescent medicine in the pediatrics department at the Stanford School of Medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Still, I think life is much more complicated for young people. ¨

1=D3@j>=@<=1=>7/ Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bombarded with much more topics much earlier in life. It can be confusing.â&#x20AC;? Many of the teenagers who I interviewed saw the Internet most importantly as a tool for learning about themselves sexually rather than just a fast track to hot naked babes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be a tool for anyone, anywhere to find out who you are if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit in very well,â&#x20AC;? says Jane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the Internet is a great way to learn about that and do some self-realization.â&#x20AC;? But, Golden warns, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to unlock the Internet filter and throw away the password. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Internet has a lot of information. Much of it is good, but there is also information that is potentially dangerous,â&#x20AC;? he says. He points to bad medical information or fringe websites that encourage unhealthy behavior like eating disorders, though he stops short of writing off pornography as a wholly destructive use of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The studies are in the infant stage,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there yet.â&#x20AC;?

CIVIC AUDITORIUM 307 Church St. Santa Cruz

Lala and Nessa, both 18, come to this discussion from a very different perspective. The two best friends are chatting in the weedy backyard of Lalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house in Watsonville while she cradles her squirming 3-month old baby boy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a fish,â&#x20AC;? she says, looking down at him pulling mightily at a baby bottle with his toothless gums. As she struggles to keep her grip on his tiny wiggling body, she admits, albeit guiltily, that this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the life sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have a baby, I wanted to finish school. I guess it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out like that,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to school. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even take a shower anymore.â&#x20AC;? Nessa keeps checking her phone. Texts from her overzealous boyfriend keep coming in. Though Nessa is taking classes and working at Cabrillo, she remembers with a tinge of regret the boy-crazy high school days that have ended in half her friends becoming mothers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were less experimental at a young age weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have had more time to focus on our futures,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In school, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about sex and boobs and asses,â&#x20AC;? says Lala. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comparing themselves to things they see on technology. All my friends were having sex.â&#x20AC;? Though both girls acknowledge that their classmates watched pornography and posted risquĂŠ pictures of themselves on MySpace, Lala has a pretty old-school

theory on why she ended up a stay-athome mom at 18 years old. She gestures to Nessa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way she is because of her dad, because he would call her and call her,â&#x20AC;? says Lala. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My parents would never call me. They would just let me do whatever I want. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in school and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a baby.â&#x20AC;?

An 18-year-old girl confesses that she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shocked when her 15-year-old brother told her he looks up pornography on classroom computers when the teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back is turned. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to it now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finished high school,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nessa considers this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The positive way is talking to your kids, the negative way is using aggression and raising your voice,â&#x20AC;? she says. Lala nods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did whatever I wanted all the time,â&#x20AC;? she says again.

The Parent Factor Though Lalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation has plenty of other issues couched in socioeconomic and cultural differences, her perspective on her own pregnancy seems to be one of the few things that both development professionals and teenagers can agree on: ¨

1=D3@j>=@<=1=>7/ parental involvement has not become obsolete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is, they still want parents in their lives,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Claire Brindis, a researcher in adolescent health at UCâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;San Francisco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even with these new devices, teenagers that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come across in my research still have this unmet need for comprehensive sex education. We as a society must recognize this period of adolescence is one of the most challenging and young people need guidance. These are universals that have not gone away.â&#x20AC;? For Dr. Marty Klein, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Palo Alto and author of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s War on Sex, the more alarming behavior has come from adults overreacting to teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technological expressions of sexuality, like the recent media hysteria over â&#x20AC;&#x153;sextingâ&#x20AC;? (a term none of the teens I met used or could use without making a face). â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the public policy conversation thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking place about kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sexuality is more about adult anxiety,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I hear district attorneys criminalizing sexting, what I hear them saying is, in order to prevent kids from ruining their lives, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to ruin their lives.â&#x20AC;? Another thing that both teens and their doctors seem to agree on is that no matter what the consequences may be, kids will find a wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;through any Internet filter, past any padlock, through any key codeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to get at the things that fascinate them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if a young person is going out for it, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to find it one way or another, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard or really easy,â&#x20AC;? says 16-year-old Tanya*. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not changing the interest you have in sex, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another source of information.â&#x20AC;? Given that assumption, Klein stresses that parental involvement is crucial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The answer is to teach them how to talk about sex to one another, how to value their bodies,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teach them how males and females can talk to each other rather than separate them in sex education classes. The thing we need is more education, not fear.â&#x20AC;? Easier said than done. Many of our interviewees reported that their parents had, at one time or another, attempted to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Talk.â&#x20AC;? One of them was 15year-old Matt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of shot my dad down because I thought he was being sort of cheesy,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned my thoughts and opinions on that stuff on my own.â&#x20AC;? Fourteen-year-old Empire Academy student Zack* balked when his mom tried to talk to him about sexting after a neighbor girl got caught sending nude photos to her boyfriend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mom was

like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t send pictures of yourself,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was weird. I was like 13 or 12 then, so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know about it yet.â&#x20AC;? Many kids reported that by the time their parents worked up the nerve, they could only tell them, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I already know this from the Internet.â&#x20AC;?

Text Question, Please Luckily, there are other options developing that actually use the same technology parents are so worried about. In her spare moments trying to help the Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency cope with the swine flu emergency, health educator Sarah Harmon tries to answer the text messages that come to her cell phone with a little â&#x20AC;&#x153;ding-dongâ&#x20AC;? sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one now,â&#x20AC;? she says. As coordinator for the teen pregnancy prevention program, Harmon gives presentations throughout the county to hundreds of students on birth control and family planning. Two years ago she started offering a work cell phone number to her students as a way for them to contact her with any concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was not a texter. I was totally foreign to the whole thing. I gave it out thinking they would call me,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this is the way teenagers communicate.â&#x20AC;? Harmon says the number of texts she receives has doubled in the last school year alone, and though the majority of the questions are just to find out Planned Parenthood clinic hours, she is also asked how certain birth control methods work or about extremely personal situations her students might not feel comfortable asking verbally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of them are wanting pregnancy tests, or just wondering if something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on with them is normal,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our society in general doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about sex much. Teens realize they can ask questions of me that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask their parent or teachers because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid.â&#x20AC;? Programs like Harmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are springing up throughout the country, and Californians, who have always rejected abstinence-only education, are at the forefront. San Francisco teenagers can text a number to get a menu of frequently asked sexual questions and automated responses, and a service called The Hookup that texts weekly health tips and can locate the nearest health clinic by zip code is available statewide. Sonoma County is interested in developing an student-to-educator texting service like Harmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, even as state budget cuts are cutting teen pregnancy prevention ¨

The teenagers I spoke to did not wish that pornography be wiped from the face of the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no surprise thereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or that cell phones be confiscated on a wide scale. They all feel pretty relaxed about the availability of X-rated material in their lives, particularly Will Canant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was younger, I was definitely more shy, more shut in, I rarely would leave the house,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my current being Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a lot more open to new experiences, and I think at least a small part of that could be contributed to the Internet and pornography. I think I turned out just fine.â&#x20AC;?

Neither Chris nor Lala nor Will nor Matt nor Nessa nor any of the rest can really say that their early exposure to pornography and other early sexual experience was too early, or that their lives will be adversely affected long into the future. And neither can the development professionals. But everyone is trying their best. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, what needs to drive public policy around sexuality is science rather than emotion,â&#x20AC;? says Klein, the Palo Alto therapist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The science says

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When it comes to effects that we can label as undesirable and antisocial, then it seems to depend on the content of the pornography and very much the profile of the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Dr. Neil Malamuth

that kids from the beginning of time have looked at sexual pictures and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to harm them very much. As young people have more access to technology they need more and more sex information, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need more repression.â&#x20AC;?

programs to the bone. There are also less tangible things at stake. Judging from Kendallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assertion that his girlfriend of a year and a half is someone who helped him see â&#x20AC;&#x153;who I wanted to be more into the future,â&#x20AC;? or the way that Jane lightly kisses her girlfriend Tanyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrist as she talks, or Nessaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feigned exasperation as her phone buzzes with her boyfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s umpteenth text, puppy love still thrives in the digital age. Several of the teenagers I spoke with had been in the same committed relationship for a year or longer. But is oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity for intimacy adversely affected by hours and hours of online bonkfests? Again, while little research is currently available, Malamuth points to a 2008 study done in Croatia which showed that a small but statistically significant amount of young men age 18 to 25 reported lower feelings of intimacy with their partners, though the correlation was found only in those watching extreme or more socially unacceptable pornography. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was no effect in mainstream sexually explicit material,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Again,] it depends on the type of person and the type of pornography.â&#x20AC;? Brindis is quick to dismiss the notion that technology will terminate the butterflies in teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stomachs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The power of Romeo and Juliet, the intensity of that love, gets repeated in the 21st century,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You still have to go through the phases of finding out who you are and defining who your romantic partner should be. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to take away from that.â&#x20AC;? And, she says, with so many more ways to keep in touch, teenager may actually becoming more intimate and in touch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always say, high tech, high touch,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You may be on the phone more often, you may be texting or twittering more.â&#x20AC;? Jane* agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between couples, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of that. Why not? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stopping you? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to set a time or a date or wait until your parents are going out of town.â&#x20AC;?

Goddaughter of Cesaria Maria de Barros inherits mantle from queen of Cape Verdean song 0G/<2@3E57:03@B


HE VAST distance between the Old World and the new isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t merely a matter of miles. Immigrant communities can share the language, music and customs of their homeland, but the harsh realities of the old country often start to fade as people put down roots in the United States. Listening to the buoyant, often celebratory music of Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Cape Verdean singer Maria de Barros and the ache-filled mornas of her famous godmother, Cesaria Evora, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that while the two artists are united by a common culture, Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affluence and West Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poverty have set their music on divergent paths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cesariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is a morna,â&#x20AC;? de Barros says, referring to the blueslike musical form popular in Cape Verdeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bars and cantinas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is someone who has suffered a lot, and now, thank God, she has been given everything she merits. My life is a completely different picture than hers.â&#x20AC;? De Barros celebrates the release of her gorgeous new album Morabeza with a series of Northern California gigs, including a Zookbeat concert at Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this Tuesday and a show at the Big Sur Spirit Garden on Saturday, May 30. It was Evora who introduced the world to the music of Cape Verde in the early 1990s with her ineffably graceful, minor-key songs describing lives of hardship, heartbreak and anguished longing for absent loved ones. The morna is much like the blues in its heroic transcendence of hard times, but strongly inflected by the rhythms and cadences of West Africa, Brazil and Portugal, the colonial power in Cape Verde until 1975.

@/7A7<5B630/@@=A Maria de Barros recombines the rhythms of West Africa with Brazilian samba and bossa nova for a new take on Old World island sounds.

Endemic poverty on the island nation off the coast of Senegal has forced generations of Cape Verdeans to seek work far from home. One of the largest expatriate settlements is in Rhode Island, which is where de Barros settled with her family as a child. Born in Senegal and raised in Mauritania, she moved with her parents to Providence at the age of 11, joining a thriving, closeknit community. She struck up a close friendship with Evora on a trip back to Cape Verde in 1988. When people asked if de Barros was the great singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She finally said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You know what? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m your godmother,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? de Barros says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You baptize children and you never know how they come out. If I had to choose a godchild, I would choose someone like you. I know exactly how you are.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? In the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, de Barros moved

with her husband, bassist Mel Wilson Jr., to Los Angeles. He had been touring with reggae pioneer Toots and the Maytals, but Cuban-born singer/actor Steve Bauer, best known for his role as Al Pacinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sidekick in Scarface, coaxed them to Los Angeles. With no Cape Verdean community around, de Barros gravitated toward the southlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thriving Latin music scene, singing boleros and rancheras in Spanish. She hooked up with veteran producer Daniel Luchansky and spent several years working on a Spanishlanguage album, and when it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gel she heeded his advice to explore her roots. The result was 2003â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acclaimed Nha Mundo (My World). On Morabeza, she expands her array of seductive grooves, from reggae and samba to bossa nova and coladeira, a sprightly Cape Verdean

dance rhythm, singing mostly in the Cape Verdean creole language of Criolu, which blends Portuguese with West African languages. The ties to the old country remain deep and strong as de Barros works to create opportunities for women and children in Cape Verde, sponsoring three schools in poverty stricken neighborhoods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an artist, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only owe it to your fans,â&#x20AC;? de Barros says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also my responsibility to give back to my country.â&#x20AC;?

MARIA DE BARROS performs Tuesday, May 26, at 7:30pm at Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. Tickets are $16 advance/$20 door, available at www.donquixotes or 831.603.2294.

Tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday bash features standup comedy and the ever-popular Big â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s Dance Party with DJ Trippâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all freeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as a way of showing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still all fun and games down at 923 Pacific Ave. Any doubts, ask Captain Morgan. He knows firsthand. Thursday, May 21, 9pm.

53B3@=B71<=B<3C@=B71 418 PROJECT still wants, no, needs to know. So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking you one more time, at their annual fundraiser, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Is Erotic?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a juicy evening,â&#x20AC;? says Laura Bishop, director of â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Is Erotic?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a moment that comes before you take the plunge, before the first kiss, and this is what the show is all about.â&#x20AC;? Though wallflowers can slink back into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;shy zoneâ&#x20AC;? bleachers and watch from a safe distance, the pre-show or â&#x20AC;&#x153;erotic salonâ&#x20AC;? knocks down the fourth wall and is set to satisfy lustier appetites, with performers giving foot rubs, passing out sexy snacks or smacking some sense into willing participants. Attendees will also be welcomed to a sexual confessional with an unholier-than-thou priest, and one lucky voyeur will have a fantasy acted out onstage, along with poetry slams, fire dancing, shadow dancing and other physical theater, all performed in a fluid four-stage format. And if this is starting to sound like an entirely different sort of â&#x20AC;&#x153;lively art,â&#x20AC;? Bishop is quick to point out that the show is hot, but not heavy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sex show,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what is erotic, not what is pornography.â&#x20AC;?

@3/2G53BA3B>/@BG THE ARRIVAL of cheery white tents, lemonade slush and meat on a stick in Boulder Creek each Memorial Day triggers a Pavlovian response in thousands of Santa Cruzans. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the official signal that summer is here, that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to shake off cares and shake a leg. Aiding us in this noble pursuit are the Buffalo Canyon Band, Trusting Lucy, Acoustic Shadows and world rock outfit Phat Chants on Saturday; the Jazzmanders, bluegrass band Mountain Drive, Root 66 and Lady Bo on Sunday; and Off On A Tangent, the AstroCasters, Solaren and the Brunos on Monday. Meanwhile, dozens of artisans will be selling ceramics, stained glass and photography, the ubiquitous face-painting concerns will have set up shop, and area wineries and breweries will be lubricating the party gears. This year, as in the last two, the festival will set up in the middle of Highway 9 (traffic is diverted through side streets), making for a relaxed, easygoing vibe to usher in summer in the greater Boulder Creek metropolitan area. (Traci Hukill)

THE BOULDER CREEK ART & WINE FESTIVAL is Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Monday, May 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;25, noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm daily in downtown Boulder Creek, Highway 9.

Walking the Talk â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Examined Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accompanies leading philosophers on a trip through the city



CCORDING to philosopher and author Kwama Anthony Appiah, centuries of population growth and migration have changed the way humans must interact with and support each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As an American, you exist in a kind of virtual relationship with 300 million people,â&#x20AC;? Appiah says as he strolls through an international airport, cameras rolling, in Examined Life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now have to be responsible for fellow citizens and fellow citizens of the world.â&#x20AC;? Such is the general ethos throughout Examined Life, an unconventional documentary featuring Cornel West, Judith Butler, Slavoj Zizek and a handful of other philosophers and cultural critics walking and musing about the ethical considerations of 21st century living. Billed as a film that â&#x20AC;&#x153;pulls philosophy out of academic journals and classrooms and puts it back on the streets,â&#x20AC;? the work by 29-year-old director Astra Taylor could easily be renamed Intellectuals Discuss How To Be a Decent Human (or At Least Not an Asshole). â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do I take into account the interests of others?â&#x20AC;? asks Peter Singer, author of The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty, which advocates a culture of giving in which all people who live comfortably give a modest portion of their income to effective organizations that fight extreme poverty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a moral

4/@3>:/G Cornel West takes a ride in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Examined Life.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

obligation to help, just as we have a moral obligation not to harm,â&#x20AC;? says Singer as he strolls along Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fifth Avenue. The film asks us to not be in denial about the wider impact of the economic, ethical and environmental choices we all make. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deny that the hundreds of dollars one could spend on shoes could not be better spent on feeding a starving person in a poor country, Singer says. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretend that the $12 shirt that feels like a sweet deal for the end consumer isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the result of another personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body and labor being exploited in poor working conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The responsible being is one who thinks they have never been responsible enough,â&#x20AC;? says Avital Ronell, the literary critic and New York University professor. Cornel West compares life to Beethoven symphonies and Charlie Parker jazz tunes, and Judith Butler

and Sunaura Taylor walk around San Francisco and discuss the convergence of gender and disability deviance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both challenge the traditional ways we think about the body,â&#x20AC;? feminist theorist Butler philosophizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand we need each other in order to address our social and political needs.â&#x20AC;? Together, the nine philosophers up the ethical ante and emphasize action driven by compassion and consideration instead of ignorance, judgment or greed. Examined Life is not about being guilted into buying a $30 necklace made in rural Nigeria where $2 goes to charity. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about humans being accountable to each other for not exploiting or ignoring one another and the environment. Though indeed â&#x20AC;&#x153;out of the classroom,â&#x20AC;? plenty of the film is beyond the access of people who forgot to study ethics or radical leftist political critiques. Besides the walking

conversation between Butler and Sunaura Taylor and a few questions prompted by director Astra Taylor to some of the other philosophers, the film is essentially a series of gently edited smart folksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soliloquies. Examined Life is easily the most cerebral 95 minutes one could spend at the movies this year, and it requires serious engagement and patience from the viewer to get most of it. If you see it in the theaters, skip the pre-movie bong rips and bring a notebook and pen to scribble down some of the quotes as they go. Or wait until the DVD comes out and have the pause and rewind buttons handy: if strategies for ethical living are your cup of tea, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to hear them twice.

EXAMINED LIFE (Unrated; 95 min.), a documentary directed by Astra Taylor, plays at the Nickelodeon in Santa Cruz.

Here are three sure bets: (1) your socks will continue to be stolen from the dryer by a one-legged man who adds insult to injury by leaving behind the now-useless mates he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need; (2) employment on the moon will elude you well into 2010; (3) in the future, it will be revealed that

the Wayans brothers have been bankrolling the hacks who make parody movies like Not Another Teen Movie and Superhero Movie, just to make their own parody movies seem like pure genius by comparison. Notice how they waited until after Meet the Spartans pretty much killed any remaining interest in spoofs before bringing out their new one, Dance Flick?

(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 fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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) /<53:A/<2 23;=<A (PG-13;

139 min.) Tom Hanks, renegade Harvard symbologist, is called in on a plot to vaporize the Vatican. Meanwhile, a killer from the Illuminati offs one high-ranking cardinal an hour. The money is onscreen, as Hanks zips around Rome and scuttles through old churches. Co-writer and frequent offender Akiva Goldsman adds his aroma to the script; a speech reconciling science and faith is of particular shininess. As the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girl, Ayelet Zurer plays a European physicist, dressed down like a Sunday school teacher in Ogden, Utah. A handy helicopter with the keys left in the ignition brings up a burst of bad-movie audacity at the end; this, sadly, proceeds a twist ending so weakly integrated into the show

that it looks like the cast sat down together and watched the alternate finale on DVD extras. (RvB) 3/@B6(G; 90 min.)

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 familyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dad,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momâ&#x20AC;? and two cubs, an heir and a spareâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;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, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the usual: shark vs. seal, polar bear vs. walrus, lions vs. elephant, and cheetah vs. gazelle. To the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit, Disney bites the bullet: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The planet is warming,â&#x20AC;? 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) 3F/;7<32:743

(PG-13; 100 min.) Matthew McConaughey is a bachelor literally haunted by his past relationships. Sounds scary, I know, but it could be worse. I heard this was originally going to be called The Ghosts of Shitty Movies Past, and have Matthew McConaughey being forced to watch all the crap films like Sahara, Failure to Launch and Two for the Money that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inflicted on the rest of us. (SP) 7:=D3G=C;/<

(R; 112 min.) Nebbishy L.A. Realtor Peter (Paul Rudd) is going to get married. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a best man for his wedding, since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a man who preferred womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. After a series of failed â&#x20AC;&#x153;man-dates,â&#x20AC;? 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 Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiancee, Zooey (Rashida Jones), has enough. Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 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 Hamburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the way this and the many, many comedies like it keep doggedly patrolling the supposedly indivisible line between men and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;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.) 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 canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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) ;/</53;3<B (R; 100 min.) It makes sense that Steve Zahn has never been a romanticcomedy lead. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the funniest guys in the movies, but can you imagine Jennifer Aniston swooning over him? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it was smart for the makers of this movie to set him up

as motel manager who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but pursue her no matter how many times she rejects him. And of course as his competition they hired a gorgeous superstud, in the form ofâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Woody Harrelson? Wait, that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be right. Huh. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m totally confused. (SP) <3FB2/G/7@(R;

90 min.) Shipping employees find a package of drugs and think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hit the jackpot. Apparently theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen any movie about anyone who finds a package of drugs and thinks theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hit the jackpot. (SP) =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 (BeyoncĂŠ). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Fatal Attractionâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;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. @C2=G1C@A7(R; 110 min.) A reunion of Diego Luna and Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal from Y tu mamĂĄ tambiĂŠn; great to have them back even in a lesser movie. The narrator is Batuta, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Batonâ&#x20AC;? (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, ruining a pair of rural banana plantation workers by making their dreams come true; thanks to Baton they become futbol stars, but Betoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gambling and Tatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeless ambition to become a singer ruin them both. Diverting, and you get a lot of Mexico in the movie, but because of its slight patronization, the film is only almost really funny and only almost really tragic; however, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elegantly moraled: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pity, nowadays, wars are mistaken for games and games are mistaken for wars.â&#x20AC;? (RvB) A7<<=;0@3 (R; 96

min.) UCSC grad Cary Fukunagaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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) B63A=:=7AB(PG-13; 117 min.) On again, off again true-life 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 nighapocalyptic view of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boiling homeless encampment, like something out of Bosch. The backstory of Lopezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

romantic troubles, a fictional subplot borrowed from His Girl Friday is by contrast about as believable as a bumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tale about why he needs a dollar. Foxx does some artistically athletic turnsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he switches gears fastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;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. Abramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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. Abramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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 spiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abdomen, plays Nero, a Romulan renegade escaped from

the future. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only conventional love interest involves Zoe Saldanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Uhuru, drawn to Spock, as who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real tension arises in the partnership between Kirk and Spockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two halves of one great leader, calm calculation meeting insane daring. (RvB) AC5/@(R; 120 min.) An unusually honest baseball movie; Algenis Perez Soto plays a Miguel Santos, who got his nickname, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Azucar,â&#x20AC;? either because of his sweet tooth or his easy way around the women. Signed up for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kansas City Knights,â&#x20AC;? 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. Sugarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventurousness continues by bypassing both the victory and the noble failure we expect in a baseball film. (RvB) AC<A67<31:3/<7<5

(R; 102 min.) In Albuquerque, two sisters get into the lucrative field of cleaning up after dead bodies. Christine Jeff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 producerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold feet, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left has charm and hard-nosed humor. With Alan Arkin as the feckless father of the sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;looking fit as usual, Arkin; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 Hoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction leaves Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;every time.â&#x20AC;? Here, he brandishes the scimitars, striking sparks off them, like a county fair pitchman demonstrating Ginzus. (RvB)

Astrology Free Will

By Rob

1126 Soquel Ave.


For the week of May 20 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): The f leas infesting dogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; skin have greater leaping power than the f leas on cats. Why do you think that is, Aries? Maybe you should use your waxing brainpower to get to the bottom of this great mystery. Just kidding! While it is true that in the coming weeks you will have unusual skill in deciphering enigmas and clarifying ambiguities, I think you should direct that skill to really important matters that will improve your life for months to comeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not to trivial questions like f leasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jumping abilities.

B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): Studies show that when most people take a shower, they lather the upper part of their bodies first and make their way down. I recommend that you take the opposite approach this week, Taurus. In fact, I think a similar strategy would be wise in just about everything you do. Start at the bottom and work your way up. Establish yourself at the ground level and then take care of the higher stuff. Pay respect to the roots and then tend to the branches.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): A couple I know planned to have their second baby delivered at home with a midwifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help. The father is a physician who assisted with childbirths during his residency, so he and his partner felt confident about conducting their rite of passage outside of the hospital. But once the momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water broke and labor began, everything happened faster than expected. The dad gave the midwife an urgent phone call, but the kid was already crowning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut the umbilical cord right away,â&#x20AC;? the midwife advised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will minimize the shock of transition if the baby can get the hang of breathing while still being nurtured as she has for the last nine months.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what they did. And I hope you will do the metaphorical equivalent, Gemini. Keep getting fed the old way for a while as you learn how to be fed in the new way.

1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): I swerve to avoid running over spiders that cross my path when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m riding my bicycle. While at home, I prefer to shepherd f lies out through an open door or window rather than swat them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still not sufficiently enlightened that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stopped trying to squash mosquitoes that dive-bomb me while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m falling asleep, however. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working on it, but may need a few more years of meditation before I bring my reverence for all insect life up to the highest level. The way I see it, my fellow Cancerian, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d benefit from working on a similar project in the coming weeks: improving your relationships with inf luences you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a natural affinity for. :3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world,â&#x20AC;? wrote anthropologist Margaret Meade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indeed, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only thing that ever has.â&#x20AC;? An excellent example of that occurred during Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Revolutionary War against England from 1775 to 1783. Of all the men in the 13 colonies who could have fought for freedom, only 16 percent did. I hope that gives you encouragement as you seek to fix a glitch in the status quo. You and your band of allies have more power than you know. D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): Up to one-tenth of the population is left-handed. Yet for centuries, even as late as the 1950s, there were social stigmas against left-handersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;similar in some ways to the perverse prejudice that has been directed toward homosexuals. So strong was the taboo that many parents tried to convert their naturally left-handed children into righties. Thankfully, this absurd form of repression is now defunct. (Five of the last seven American presidents have been left-handed.) But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good reminder that there are countless other ways in which our culture still attempts to coax us or force us into not being who we really are. But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the good news: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time for you Virgos to reject the pressure to be someone else and get back to where you once belonged. Reunite with the person you were destined to be! :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): The Tower of Terror is a thrill ride at Disney World. Riders are yanked up and down as they travel along a 199-foot pillar. A Florida woman named Denise Mooty believes this form of amusement is essential to her health. She says the extreme G-forces sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exposed to on the ride help dissipate the fibrous adhesions in her belly. I recommend a similar kind of therapy for you, Libra.

Santa Cruz, near the Crepe Place and Rio Theatre At your service everyday from 10-9 since 1978

Free Public Parking at Cayuga & Soquel O (831)429-9600 Not to break up fibrous adhesions, since you probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any, but rather to jostle your mental blocks, repetitive fantasies, and obsessive habits. They might just break into pieces and dissipate if you shake them in the right way.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your choice, Scorpio. You could be a creative dynamo who changes the course of local historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or you could be a plain old boring sex maniac. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll it be? We here at the Free Will Astrology Libido Management Center encourage you to at least partially sublimate your unruly mojo into beautiful works of art, innovative business solutions, and brilliant strokes of collaboration. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to stop boinking altogether; just make it the second most important thing you rather than your raison dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;etre.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): The planets are conspiring to unleash energies that will touch you in ways you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize you needed to be touched. Any minute now you may begin to feel a pleasurable burning sensation in your soft underbelly, or a prickly wake-up call in your willpower, or a ticklish electricity running through your funny bone. What does it all mean? Maybe nothing. Or maybe it means so much that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possibly analyze its meaning. What a valuable gift that would be! When is the last time you felt free of the need to have to understand everything? 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): A long-time Capricorn reader named Allison wrote me an apologetic email. She said that she has always loved my horoscopes, and still loves them, but for the foreseeable future sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to stop reading them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take it as an insult, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just need to be less subject to outside inf luences for a while. Maybe that will help me get better at paying attention to my own intuition.â&#x20AC;? I understood exactly what she means. According to my analysis, this is one time when you may have to shield yourself from the noise around youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even the good and interesting noiseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in order to hear your own inner voice better.

/?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): Rolling Stone magazine has said that â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s folk singer Tom Rush (born Feb. 8) was a major force in launching the era of the singer/songwriter. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been lying low for a while, though. Recently he came out with his first new studio album in 35 years. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing that, like him, quite a lot of other Aquarians will also be climaxing new creations as 2009 unfoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;perhaps even works that are long overdue or that have been extraordinarily slow in the making. And what happens in the next few weeks will be crucial in that process. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the problems we face in the United States today,â&#x20AC;? said comedian and presidential candidate Pat Paulsen, â&#x20AC;&#x153;can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian.â&#x20AC;? With that as your inspiration, Pisces, I urge you to take inventory of your own â&#x20AC;&#x153;immigration policy.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time to do so, astrologically speaking. Here are some questions to guide you. What inf luences do you allow to pour into your sphere? Are they beneficial for your longterm mental health? What people do you invite to share your resources? Do they bring out the best in you? Do you have smart boundaries that keep out the bad stuff and welcome in the good?
