What Debate? Torture has many purposes unrelated to intelligence gathering. You humiliate, terrorize, blackmail, coerce and demoralize your victims and their communities. You create bogus â&#x20AC;&#x153;intelligenceâ&#x20AC;? by getting your victim to say what you want, with a few hints (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, Saddam Hussein is in league with Al Qaedaâ&#x20AC;?). You also dehumanize and debase

Â?

yourself and your own people. This purpose has now been successfully achieved in America. We are actually having a national debate on torture. How naive I must be! I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there was anything to debate. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next, a national debate on rape? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rape: Bad Policy or Necessary Evil?â&#x20AC;?). And slavery? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Middle Passage: Injustice or Voyage to Prosperityâ&#x20AC;??). We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget cruciďŹ xion. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;CruciďŹ xion: Barbarism or Enhanced Penalty

Option?â&#x20AC;?) And by the way, nobody went back and punished Pontius Pilate, so why should we prosecute our own torturers? Oh, wait a minute . . . Josh Reilly, Ben Lomond

DeďŹ ne â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Many voted no in the special election not to protest more

taxes but to reject confusing shell games with state funds and demand a real ďŹ x to California budget problems. First, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revisit property taxes. Prop. 13, designed to keep home owners from losing their homes as property taxes rose beyond their means to pay, was forecast as a disaster for education and local services. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the midst of that disaster. Writing a bill that keeps a safety provision for primary residences but allows counties to tax commercial and corporate property at itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actual value would provide a steady revenue stream to schools and local services. Next, change drug laws and super-punitive sentencing laws that result in millions going to keep people who are dangerous only to themselves behind bars for years. The criminal justice budget is higher than the social services budget. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put the pressure on our state officials to stop holding us hostage to their political bickering and show some real leadership. I do believe my students at the SRJC could work together more constructively and creatively to design a budget that provides the services we need without taxing the people who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford more taxes. Judy Helfand Kenwood

Bland (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ultimate Download,â&#x20AC;? Cover Story, May 20). I wondered how he would present all the scientiďŹ c data, microbiological nomenclature and procedures to a public largely without a science background. The story is easy to read and understand without all that jazz. Kudos! Kingsley Okeke Los Banos

More Kudos I was really impressed by the depth of the reporting for this article! (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teens and Porn,â&#x20AC;? Cover Story, May 27.) This was comparable with The New York Times or any paper! Wow! Kudos to you and Ms. Lussenhopâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; although I was reading until the end, hoping for answer, yay or nay, what is good, what is bad? but I guess there are no easy answers in life, and the data is not there yet. Sophia Yen Atherton

Cut It Out! I ďŹ nd this personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinions and rude attitude (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Saw You,â&#x20AC;? any issue) to be very offending!! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that this should be published anymore, and if it is I will stop reading the publication.

Kudos to the reporter Alastair

J!Tbxzpv Belching Behemoth Sitting fatly behind the wheel of your monstrous black H-2, you do the unthinkable: you actually add to what I thought was the limitless hideousness of I-80. As we crawl through a typical half-day-long rush hour, the belching exhaust of your 5-mile-a-gallon behemoth does its part to doom human civilization and destroy the oceans as well. One arm propped out of the window, you smiled your idiot Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve-got-mine smile to anyone who looked. Bad news thoughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the price of gas is rising again, and soon youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pawning everything you own to feed that beast.

ITH CELEBRATORY TALK about the 40th anniversary of Woodstock reverberating throughout the land, no one seems to be bringing up the darker side of that era, especially since August will also mark the 40th anniversary of the Tate-LaBianca murders. There exist several local connections I could perhaps explore: Charles Manson spent time in San Jose on his way from the Haight-Ashbury to Los Angeles; Susan Atkins, a.k.a. Sadie, spent part of her childhood in Cambrian Park and, like me, went to Leigh High School; and local Homestead alumnus-turned–conspiracy theorist Jeffrey Deane Turner claims that factions of the Process Church of the Final Judgment, to which Manson may have had connections, eventually morphed into a more secret and sinister operation with tentacles still operating here in the South Bay. Whether or not there’s any such thing as an accident—and since the Conspiracy Convention 2009 just happens to hit the Santa Clara Convention Center this weekend—I think I must probe a few seemingly connected spheres of influence. I originally met Turner in order to consider his claims that ’60s sexpot Tuesday Weld is a descendant in a bloodline of druidic witches who indoctrinated her into the Illuminati, with whom she secretly unleashed nearly everything we currently know about the ’60s counterculture. According to Turner, the Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape, the Who and many more were actually Weld’s secret protégés, functioning as entertainment-industry fronts in her elaborately networked battle against the both the worldwide fascist network and another secret society, the All Nations Group, puppeteered by ’80s pop star Tiffany. I was introduced to Turner by his pal Douglas Hawes, a San Jose native who had appeared with Turner on Untamed Dimensions, an Internet radio show hosted by freelance investigative journalist Adam Gorightly. Originally writing for Steamshovel Press, Gorightly had been the first to break the story of Turner’s paradigm-shattering claims. The essay, “Tiffany Overtakes Tuesday Weld,” later appeared in Secret and Suppressed II: Banned Ideas and Hidden History Into the 21st Century (Feral House), as well as Gorightly’s own compendium, The Beast of Adam Gorightly: Collected Rantings (1992–2004). Gorightly will infiltrate Silicon Valley this weekend to cover Conspiracy Con 2009 for Paranoia Magazine. He will also be hawking an updated version of his book The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind I originally met Jeffrey Control and the Manson Family Deane Turner in order Mythos, to be released Aug. 8 by Creation Books, just in to consider his claims time for the 40th anniversary. that ’60s sexpot Tuesday According to the hype, it Weld is a descendant in takes “readers on a black a bloodline of druidic magic carpet ride from the Hollywood ‘Beautiful People’ witches who indoctrinated scene of the late ’60s through her into the Illuminati to the vast desert landscapes of a Death Valley gone mad—with all the love-ins and murderous creepy-crawls that happened along the way.” The book contains all the time-tested free-form 666-degrees-of-separation-alia: Manson’s connection to the Beach Boys, the Hollywood S&M scene in the ’60s, UFOs, Sammy Davis Jr.’s involvement in the Church of Satan, the Beatles’ White Album, the Second Coming of Christ, Yul Brynner, the CIA and good old-fashioned satanic hippie love. The updated version contains new information on the possible whereabouts of Steve Grogan, a.k.a. “Clem,” the only Manson Family member who was actually released from prison. And getting back to the Process Church, Feral House will soon release Love Sex Fear Death: The Inside Story of the Process Church of the Final Judgment, written by former church member Timothy Wyllie. Judging by publisher Adam Parfrey’s foreword, it looks to provide a more rational, thinking man’s approach to the whole ball of wax, disproving the more hysterical fear-fueled sensationalism previously written on this cult. How’s that for a few meaningful coincidences? Seems like more sleuthing is in order, methinks. In the words of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, “I am open to the guidance of synchronicity, and do not let expectations hinder my path.” Got a theory that explains it all? SiliconAlleys@metronews.com

MICROSOFT quietly launched their new search engine without fanfare and sans parade. Last week everyone got to see the demo TRIAL BALLOON!!Uif!qpmmt!bsf!tujmm!pqfo!po!NjdsptpguÖt!Cjoh!tfbsdi!tjuf-! mbvodife!jo!Cfub!Npoebz-!cvu!fbsmz!sfwjfxt!tbz!ju!epftoÖu!tvdl/! video and a few of us were actually able to access Bing for our reviews. Most everyone, though, just had to wait to actually try the service. Initial reader comments tended toward the negative on announcement day. Microsoft got heat for having nothing but a landing page up (and not even that for a while after the announcement). The “Bing stands for But It’s Not Google” comment appeared a number of times, as did sarcastic comments like “Looks like Live search again. Good to see Microsoft trying new things.” There were also a few variations of “MS is a bloated sinking ship . . . Bing is nothing but a desperate attempt by an obsolete company.” You get the picture. Today, though, they can actually try it. And the overwhelming number of user comments on our launch post Sunday evening are extremely positive. People like Bing. My thoughts on Bing: I like it. And I’d consider using it as my search engine. But like many people I’m used to Google and I know how to find the things I’m looking for. Bing returns very different results for a lot of queries, which is great. But it also means spending time learning how to use Bing to get what you need out of it. I’ll spend that time because it’s my job. But for most people, they’ll stick to what they know, and that’s Google. —MICHAEL ARRINGTON, TECHCRUNCH.COM

Frogs Are Croaking While the native red-legged is going extinct, it’s open season on the mighty bullfrog By Alastair Bland

A

N evening chorus of ribbiting rises as the glowing sun falls on the Central Valley, and frogging partners Bill Guzules and Lee Giudici, both retired Santa Clara schoolteachers, slip their 10-foot flat-bottom into the still waters of a nameless irrigation ditch near Los Banos. Guzules seats himself at the bow with a flashlight and Giudici pushes the skiff from the shore, hops aboard and engages the electric motor. Two other boats launch beside them while one man remains on guard with the three cars. Night has fallen, the air is still and the hunt has begun. The team has come out here for a night of frogging, and it bodes to be a good one. In windy weather, frogs stay hidden and sheltered, but on balmy evenings like this their buggy eyes light up left and right in the flashlight’s beam, and hunting is, if not necessarily easy, fast. Guzules quickly picks a target and softly speaks directions to Giudici: “Left, left, right—OK, straight ahead.” Giudici follows the commands.

Guzules keeps the quarry blinded by the flashlight as the glowing eyes draw nearer, and, at the last, out goes a hand off the side of the boat, swiping an alarmed bullfrog from the water. It’s a big one, 6 inches from nose to tail, to say nothing of its massive and meaty hind legs that kick and struggle, seeking a surface from which to launch into freedom—but this frog is in the hands of a man who’s been bagging these charismatic brutes for 48 years, and it’s going nowhere but into the damp gunny sack, the first frog of the evening. Another boat works the waters beside Giudici and Guzules, and the third skiff takes up the rear, cleaning up any frogs that might have slipped between the leading boats, and by the end of the night the team may have 100 frogs between them. The men may hunt for three, even four nights straight. The animals are esteemed as gourmet stuff—their legs, anyway. Uncounted thousands of Californians hunt the amphibians, which can

[11]

grow to several pounds and are most easily taken with five-pronged barbed tritons called “frog gigs.” But on this night three weeks ago, Guzules, Giudici and their team aren’t out for meat. Their primary frog gig (yes, a pun) was that of supplying the fairgrounds in Angels Camp with jumpers for the annual Jumping Frog Jubilee, which just took place for the 81st time May 14–17. The collectors may catch 400 frogs in a span of several nights of consecutive hunting, though they weed out the undesirables and return them to the water the next night. Come festival time, they may have 100 keeper frogs. Other collectors supply frogs, as well—several hundred, all told—and the animals dwell in tanks under the stage throughout the four-day event, to be drawn out as $6 rentals for spurof-the-moment contestants without frogs of their own. But Guzules, Giudici and their third primary teammate, Denny Matascy, formerly of the South

Bay before he moved to Sonoma County several years ago, keep the best specimens for themselves with the hope of taking first place in the jubilee. Giudici, in fact, holds the jubilee record. It was 1986 when Rosie the Ribeter, a frog he’d swiped from a Central Valley ditch, leapt 21 feet, 5 3/4 inches from her starting point, a quaint piece of trivia with which nearly everyone in Angels Camp is familiar. Jumps are measured over three consecutive leaps, and for 23 years not a frog has jumped further than Rosie the Ribeter. Each year’s winner at the Jumping Frog Jubilee takes home $750, while a $5,000 prize awaits anyone whose frog exceeds the record. Not just any frog is likely to perform well in competition, says Guzules. “You usually want a male bullfrog, 5 to 6 inches long,” he says. “You also don’t want one too heavy. If he’s just eaten and he’s got a big crawdad in him, he won’t be a good jumper, especially if it’s Monday and we’re jumping him on Friday. They pass their food slowly, so we’ll just turn those ones loose.” One night in the late 1990s, remembers Guzules, he caught a huge female bullfrog that had recently devoured a rat. The rodent’s rear legs and scaly tail still dangled from the frog’s mouth. She was loaded with eggs, too, and back she went into the water, to make tadpoles and perhaps jump another time when she was less preoccupied. Guzules, Giudici and Matascy take other careful efforts to weed out poor jumpers. They sort the catch back at the house, after a few hours’ sleep and coffee. Injured or sick frogs go into the “hospital bag.” Others, too, are culled from the collection if they measure less than 4 inches nose to butt—the minimum size required by the competition—and some are eliminated if they perform poorly in test jumps on the front driveway. These animals are released that night on the next round of hunting. In their early days, Guzules and Giudici (Matascy was not yet on the team) didn’t take such preparative care. In 1961, for example, while preparing for their first competition in the Angels Camp jubilee, the pair &'

knew no better than to gunny-sack their frog and put it on ice for the two-hour drive, like a six-pack of beer. Come jump time, the frigid animal wouldn’t move. “We’d put him into hibernation,” says Guzules. “On the stage, he just sat there. We didn’t know much about frogs then.”

For Guzules, now 71 years old, and his teammates, frogs are a labor of love. But not just any frogs. They favor bullfrogs, the star of the Jumping Frog Jubilee. Not everyone shares their sentiments—and for good reason. Rana catesbeiana, after all, is a nonnative species introduced in the late-1800s as a food source after Gold Rush gourmands ate the endemic red-legged frog, Rana aurora draytonii, into scarcity. Since then, the voracious bullfrog—a predator that will eat almost anything that it can fit in its mouth, including turtles, birds and other frogs—has taken over virtually every drainage in the state. (The species has also invaded France, British Columbia, South Korea and Hawaii.) In California, the bullfrog is known to dine on red-legged frogs,. In 1996, the latter was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, and in September 2008 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service launched an effort to restore red-legged frog habitat. As part of the plan, the feds are encouraging ranchers to eliminate bullfrogs from their property, either by draining ponds during the height of summer or by killing them. Several years ago, in fact, a property owner in the Los Altos Hills heard talk of the frog-catching skills of Guzules, Giudici and Matascy. He invited them to come catch his unwanted bullfrogs which had devastated his ponds’ native ecology, and the team removed several dozen—only to deliver them to their favorite Central Valley collecting spots to continue their lives. Meanwhile, the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is eager to see bullfrogs gone, and has made it easy as possible to hunt and kill the animals. A daily bag limit was once applied, but today frog giggers can take all they want, all year, at any time of day or night, and by any means they want except with firearms. Guzules says that frog hunters may even be taking a slight toll, and several favorite frog ponds near Gustine are not the loaded honey holes they once were.

Out of the Frying Pan Mike Baldassar, assistant manager at Mel Cotton’s Sporting Goods on West San Carlos, sells five-pronged frog gigs. A sizeable portion of the populace, he says, hunts bullfrogs. Baldassar himself once did, too, though he used fishing gear and floating bass plugs drawn slowly along the reeds. Bullfrogs would charge from ambush and engulf such lures, and an hour’s fishing could render a family-sized meal, with each frog leg amounting to several bites of mild flesh. Baldassar and other sources say that frog

tastes like chicken, which to Guzules is a no-brainer. “Then why don’t you just eat chickens?” he quips. But in spite of government efforts, the bullfrog is thriving. Several years ago, when the Corde Valle Golf Club in San Martin applied to the DFG for a “streambed alteration” permit in order to develop the land, biologists granted the permit on the grounds that the country club would mitigate its impacts by ridding the property’s waterways of bullfrogs. But draining the ponds under the blazing summer sun didn’t work as planned, and the resilient predators remain on-site to this day. Dave Johnston, an amphibian specialist with the DFG, says bullfrogs are likely here to stay, adding that a half-hearted eradication effort will accomplish nothing. “You would need unified commitment throughout the state to entirely get rid of them, and not everyone wants them gone. Some people don’t see the impacts that bullfrogs have on the land as a bad thing, and they certainly wouldn’t want to spend money on the effort. Some people actually like them, for whatever reason.” Such words might have incited riot two weekends ago in Angels Camp, where several hundred cherished bullfrogs—one a sluggish 3-pounder nicknamed Mr. G (for Gargantua)—dwelt in the rental tanks under the stage. Hundreds of other frogs arrived with private teams, and the winner of the lot leapt 21 feet, nearly taking Lee Giudici’s record. The rest of the frogs were losers, yet all were loved. Several were sent to the “loving care unit,” where bruised and injured frogs go for recovery, and in the days following the Jumping Frog Jubilee their captors released them into the waters from which they came. Alas, some will surely get gigged and fried—in extra virgin olive oil, with a dash of salt and rosemary—but enough of them will spawn and procreate that, for better or for worse, the song of Rana catesbeiana will almost certainly sound long into the future over the wetlands of the Central Valley. It may never find harmony with the voice of Rana aurora draytonii, but for Bill Guzules and other frog hunters, a bullfrog’s croak is music to the ears. M

Robert ‘The Ghost’ Guerrero is the toughest 130-pounder to ever come out of Gilroy, and he’s going to prove it to the world BY JESSICA FROMM

R

OBERT GUERRERO’S punches echo off his opponent’s protective headgear. The boxer moves with confidence, putting together combinations, sliding and pivoting around the ring, driving his sparring partner back against the ropes. Two steps forward, jab, two steps back. Three steps forward, jab, two steps back. Then a frenzy of lefts and rights, each landing with the deep thump of solid contact. Sprays of sweat pattern the purple canvas around the two men as they duke it out. Punches erupting in his face, Guerrero’s opponent slogs witless through the barrage, heading toward the side of the ring to escape the imminent butchery. Good boxers need to dance as well as punch, and Guerrero is practically waltzing around this guy, demonstrating superb footwork and agility. Traveling with a decisive, looping looseness, his body is an expression of balanced motion. He carries an elegance and dignity about him—no ordinary wreaker of random carnage, he looks every bit the two-time world IBF Featherweight Champion that he is. Guerrero points his shoulder toward his opponent at all times, providing the narrowest moving target as he presses forward. He approaches with an arch, an angle where he can hit without being hit, while his less-experienced opponent comes at him full on. He lands another punishing

blow. A jab flicks out from his opponent’s defensive stance, quaking Guerrero’s body. The other fighter is good, but it’s obvious that Guerrero is anticipating his moves. His opponent forgets to keep his hands up for a second, and Guerrero seizes the opportunity. Two more punches explode. Guerrero releases a left, pinning his sparring opponent with an uppercut as he tries to shimmy off the ropes. He drills him with a straight left to the face, then stands back to give the guy some room before the bell rings, indicating the end of the threeminute round. The fighters stop and embrace each other in a bro hug, fist-bumping gloves and patting each other on the back before dipping under the elasticized ropes. After spitting out their mouthpieces and slipping off their groin protectors, both men sit on the side of the ring as bystanders unlace their 8-ounce gloves. Once his hands are free, the sparring partner pulls off his protective headgear. Soaked in sweat and still shiny from the Vaseline smeared around his eyes, nose, cheeks and lips before the fight, Randy Guerrero, Robert’s 17-year-old brother, is panting with exhaustion. But then he smiles, intoxicated from the beating inflicted on him by his older brother, a double dose of endorphins and epinephrine flooding his body. Though it looked like a tough match, Robert later says he went easy on his little

brother. This was just a friendly sparring session at Robert’s newly opened boxing gym in his hometown of Gilroy. Robert could have hit him harder. Much harder.

Pride of Gilroy Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero possesses a serious knockout punch, a talent the southpaw has proven in the professional ring 16 times. He could have taken on three or four more guys that night, the way he does when he is training hard-core, as he is right now, in preparation for his next big fight, June 12 at the HP Pavilion. Guerrero (23-1-1, 16 KOs) will be returning to the Shark Tank next week in the main event of ESPN’s televised Friday Night Fights against North Carolinian Johnnie Edwards (15-4-1, 8 KOs). Guerrero is the pride of Gilroy, the town where his family has lived for three generations. Pugilism is a way of life for the Guerrero clan. His grandfather boxed professionally in Texas; his father, who is now his trainer, was an amateur champion. His uncles boxed; his five brothers box. At 5-foot-8 and 130 pounds, Robert is shorter in stature, lighter in complexion and slighter in build than any of his burly brothers. Though he is ripped from his intense training regiment and strict diet, he is still a junior lightweight. A decisive, thoughtful speaker, Robert has a light behind his eyes not common in 17

the boxing world, a profession spent getting hit in the head. Some small men are apt to be a bit disputatious and peppery, but Guerrero has an extremely humble, almost shy manner. That is in stark contrast with the animal he becomes in the ring. “Nobody expected me to get this far,” Robert says. “They expected my two older brothers to do big things in boxing, and here comes me. They were amazed, like ‘Wow, that’s the least likely guy we thought was going to do it.’” Robert is the fourth in a family of six brothers. His father, Ruben Guerrero Sr., got his sons into boxing to stop the constant melee that resulted from so much testosterone in the house.

‘My older brothers boxed, my father was a fighter and my grandfather was too, so I was basically raised around boxing. As soon as I was old enough, I just couldn’t wait to get in. As soon as my dad signed me up, it just took off from there.’ “My older brothers boxed, my father was a fighter and my grandfather was too, so I was basically raised around boxing,” Robert says. “As soon as I was old enough, I just couldn’t wait to get in. As soon as my dad signed me up, it just took off from there.” Guerrero’s first gym was at a dairy farm. He later moved into town, to a gym off Sixth and Railroad streets, and has been fighting out of Gilroy ever since. Robert’s older brother, Ruben Guerrero Jr., who now runs the Ghost Guerrero Boxing and Fitness Club in downtown Gilroy, says that when he was growing up, nobody expected Robert to be the successful fighter in the family.

“Honestly, no,” says Ruben, who had some success as an amateur fighter in his teens and resembles more his father’s sturdy physique and easy-talking demeanor. “He just hung out on the ropes and watched us work out, and watched us fight.” Ruben says that Robert has worked hard to stay on the straight and narrow, something that isn’t always so easy in a town like Gilroy. “He knows where he came from, and he worked hard and stayed focused. And he’s learned off of his older brothers’ mistakes,” says Ruben Jr. “I lived the party life; I loved to go out. I was big-time, boxing time, but I partied. Another brother had kids. Another brother went to prison. We were all fighters, and we could all make it, but he was the guy that said, ‘Hey, I’m not going to do that.’ He learned from our mistakes.” Robert earned the nickname “The Ghost” in his earliest days of boxing. “When he was a young kid, he was so quick and little, he looked like a little lightning guy,” says Ruben Sr. A two-time Golden Glove champ himself, Ruben Sr. now works as Robert’s trainer and motivator. Shorter and stockier then his son, Ruben Sr.’s thick goatee is flecked with gray, a deep furrow permanently etched between two fuzzy eyebrows. “The other kids couldn’t see him, they’d just turn around looking for him, and Robert would just throw punches from nowhere. They were like, ‘Man, you move like a ghost, we can’t hit you. You’re here, and then you not there; you disappear.’” Ruben Sr. says his youngest son’s work ethic and passion for the sport set him apart from his brothers. “The talent is already there, so the only thing I recognized is that he really wanted it,” he says. “It’s all Robert’s doing, because he wanted it.” Robert Guerrero won his first national tournament at the age of 15, competed in the national Junior Olympics and then went on to qualify for the 2000 Olympic trials, where he took third place. He was one of the youngest fighters to ever compete in the Olympic boxing trials. He decided to turn professional right out of high school, at the age of 18. Though Guerrero has been boxing in the big leagues for eight years now, he still possesses the delicate features of a young man. His eyebrows are not yet hooded by the scarred and swollen flesh indicative of veteran boxers. Still, clusters of thin, pale scars are barely noticeable through his eyebrows. The most visible scar sits above his right eye, an injury inflicted on him last March by a head butt in the second round of his first HP Pavilion fight—a blow that marred his reputation more than it did his face. 18

Complete Athlete From an outsider’s view, boxing can seem like a relatively easy thing to do if one is thick enough. Even after great, intelligent fighters like Jack Johnson, Muhammad Ali and Marvin Hagler, popular culture still holds onto the stereotype that boxers are more brute than human. A boxing match is seen in some corners as a brawl with padded gloves rather then a sport, and fighters themselves as a jumble of impulse and viciousness. Truthfully, a professional fighter has to be both a sadist and a masochist to like what he does. Most people don’t enjoy getting punched in the face, and when they do, most have a logical reaction: “This is bullshit! What the hell am I doing? I’m getting out of here.” Robert Guerrero has been passionate about boxing from day one. “There was no doubt in my mind, it’s what I wanted to do,” he says. “I love boxing so much, I wanted to do it for a living. Not many people get to do what they want.” The truth is, the cliché applied to boxers is often far from the reality. Professional fighters have to be more complete athletes to do what they do than participants in virtually any other sport. A great fighter is able to maintain his reasoning when instinct, pain and adrenalin are blurring his mind. Every single day in the months that lead up to a big fight, Robert gets up at the crack of dawn to go on a nine-mile run, his father

training and pushing him all the way. “His dad shows up at my house at 5am honking and flashing his lights, and he’ll knock on the door. That’s when he’ll get up and go running,” says Casey Guerrero, Robert’s wife, in an annoyed tone. Casey sits curled up in a chair in a small office located at the back of the gym. When not in the hospital, she comes here a couple times a week to help out with paperwork and the business end of the fitness center. Though proud of her husband’s success in the ring, Casey herself has been waging her own internal battle with serious illness. The gym is clammy and warm, but Casey’s painfully thin frame is clad in a pair of minute skinny-jeans and a parka, a white-knit brimmed beanie on her head. Her makeup is impeccable, foundation and blush applied expertly to give her sunken cheeks color, flawlessly painted black eyeliner rimming her lashless eyes, the perfect arching of her eyebrows made out of pencil. Without really eating, she picks at the potato wedges and array of fast food laid out in front of her on the office desk. “That’s why he has his dad,” she says. “To push him to do all that, or else he would probably lie in bed till 10am and then go do it.” When Robert gets home from his run, he eats a simple, lean, salt-free breakfast, plays with his two kids, 4-year-old Savannah Rose and 2-year-old Robert Jr., kisses Casey goodbye, then heads off to the gym to train with his dad. In the late afternoon, he’ll hang around

The Toughest Fight Robert Guerrero is a nice guy. He’s a family man, a respectful and genuine hometown hero. But with all the community outreach and squishy feelings he inspires in his Bay Area fans, one question hovers around the edges of his career: Is he tough enough to be a champion again? After a series of personal and professional setbacks, many in the boxing community are wondering if Guerrero is still the gritty fighter he used to be. The fact of the matter is, Guerrero has been doing more fighting outside the ring than in these last two years, his opponent a hundred times more lethal then anyone he has ever faced between the ropes. Robert and Casey met when they were 14. They became high school sweethearts and were married four years ago. Two years later, in 2007, shortly after giving birth to Robert Jr., Casey was diagnosed with leukemia. Robert was one week away from a title defense in Arizona against Martin Honorio (24-3-1, 13 KOs) when he got the news. He knocked out Honorio in 56 seconds in that fight, then immediately flew home to be with his family. “He takes me to my doctor’s appointments, check-ups. Everything that I have to go through, he’s with me,” says Casey. Then, another blow. Following an eighth-round knockout victory against the previously unbeaten Jason Litzau in February 2008, a fight that won Guerrero national attention because it was aired on Showtime, the young fighter was forced into a 10-month layoff while in litigation with his former promoters, L.A.-based Goossen-Tutor. He was stuck in arbitration for almost a year over the contract dispute. “I was going crazy not being able to fight, just training and being ready and then getting in a suit and going to court,” Guerrero recalls. “It was frustrating, just coming off of two excellent fights on Showtime, two back-to-back exciting knockouts where the media was excited, everybody in boxing was excited. And then, nothing for a year. So, it was a tough situation.” As soon as he got out of the contract, Robert signed with Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions Inc. He then abdicated his IBF title, moving up from 126 pounds to the 130-pound division. And then came another hit. Casey’s leukemia, which had been in remission for over a year, recurred in January.

Rules of Boxing Every boxer knows that he is only as good as his last fight. Guerrero has a lot to prove with his June 12 match, both that he can carry a major arena boxing card and that he can still win. Though it was not a loss, Guerrero’s last bout was particularly disappointing. The fight was aired on HBO’s Boxing After Dark live from San Jose on March 7. More than 7,000 Bay Area fans had crowded the Shark Tank to watch Guerrero battle undefeated Indonesian fighter Daud Yordan (23-0-0, 17 KOs). The heavily pro-Guerrero crowd cheered on their hometown favorite as the fight began. Yordan took the initial round with several right-hand combinations to Guerrero’s head. But it wasn’t until the second round that the trouble began. Yordan attempted to clinch Guerrero, but instead the men butted heads, opening up a deep gash above Guerrero’s right eye. Blood mist clouded Guerrero’s vision as he gunned it out with Yordan, slinging punches as hard has he could. With Guerrero unable to see, the referee stopped the fight at 1:47 in Round 2. Misinterpreting the early stoppage as an indication that Guerrero had lost, the large Shark Tank crowd began to boo when the fighters were pulled apart. The fight was ruled a “No Decision by Accidental Head Butt” because it had only lasted two rounds, in accordance with the California Rules of Boxing. Yordan was up slightly in the scorecards when the fight was stopped. With blood pouring from his eye, Guerrero did not dispute the decision. That’s a fact he now regrets. “The doctor stopped the fight,” he says. “I’m not going to argue. Now, when I look back, I wish I did argue,” Guerrero says. “That’s where I got most of the criticism, because I didn’t protest the stoppage. Even if I did protest, they still would have stopped it anyway. But that’s what the fans love to see.” Boxing fans and critics were disappointed in the March 7 fight, many complaining that Guerrero gave up too quickly and didn’t show enough tenacity in the ring. There have even been rumblings that Guerrero’s quick acceptance of the nodecision has put him on HBO’s shit list for the time being, for delivering such a short televised performance. “It’s one of the most brutal sports in the world,” Guerrero says, “and that’s what they like, that rugged tough guy. But, hey, if they make the decision, they make the decision. “Still, I wish I would have protested, but I’m not that type of guy. I’m here to shine light in on the sport, not make it look bad. I’m not going to get out of control and up in people’s faces.” 20

Guerrero’s camp has challenged Yordan to a rematch, but the Indonesian fighter has turned it down, a fact that they interpret as proof that he’s afraid to face Guerrero again. According to Ruben Guerrero Sr., there was a reason that Robert might not have been on his A-game the night of the Yordan fight. The day before the match, Robert and his wife found out from the doctors that she might need a bonemarrow transplant. “They don’t know what Robert’s going through,” his father says. “They don’t know that Robert’s wife just went into the hospital. They told him that the day before the fight. “I could tell, that’s not my Robert. His mind wasn’t here. It was back with his wife and his kids. But now, it’s better now.”

Giving Back The Guerrero family never had things easy. Growing up in Gilroy, Robert and his brothers frequently worked in the South County agricultural fields to help make ends meet. It was this connection to the Gilroy

community that spurred Guerrero to open up his own boxing gym last March, a place for him to train and his family to work, and a way to give back to his hometown. “The boxing program in Gilroy that I grew up under got closed down, you know, there wasn’t enough funding,” Guerrero says. Over the last few years, South County has seen a sharp spike in gang violence, and Guerrero says it was important to offer kids a place to go after school where they could be supervised, have some fun and get some exercise too. Though it’s been less then four months since it opened, a salty mist already permeates the Ghost Guerrero Boxing and Fitness Club, along with the smell of sweat and glove leather. The small gym’s mirrored walls knit the space together. On most afternoons, older teens and adults hang out in groups along the perimeters, shadowboxing, lifting lightweights, doing the slip-slap cadence of jumping rope, heavy punching bags creaking on chains as they get battered. As Guerrero walks around his crowded gym, the younger kids watch him in awe. “I teach them the basics of boxing, hard work ethic, basically working on their


M E T R O S I L I C O N VA L L E Y    JUNE 3-9, 2009   COVER STORY

character,” he says. “It takes a lot to be a fighter, a lot of discipline, so, they see that out of me. I say, ‘Look, I don’t look like a fighter, and look what I’m doing.’ It inspires them.” Robert has an easy way with the younger kids, talking and joking with them casually, animated and grinning as he mimes a punch. “He always talks to the little ones,” says Hector Catano, a family friend who has been leading classes at the gym since it opened. “I tell them, ‘I knew him when I was your age,’ and they ask me, ‘Can we be like him?’ and I tell them if they put their heart into it, then yeah.” You can see their excitement as Robert encourages them and shows them pointers. “He teaches us, like, the footwork, and how to do uppercuts and stuff,” says 14-year-old Aaron Avena, showing off an enthusiastic if not totally balanced combination. When asked what the most fun thing is that he’s learned so far, Avena doesn’t miss a beat. “Sparring!” he exclaims. “I get to sock people without getting in trouble.” Guerrero and his family take pride in the fact that many of the kids that attend their gym come from a tough background, like Guerrero and his brothers did in their youth. “I’ve got three kids that come in from working out in the fields all day,” says Ruben Jr. “They get home-schooled so they can help their parents in the field and working at a fruit stand. So this is their playtime now, right here. These kids are a big inspiration for me, because this is how we grew up, me and Robert. And here they are in the gym, just like us. They want it, they love it, they soak it up. “We got kids off the street who were gangbanging, smoking weed. They get inside the ring and they tear it up. They get their aggression out, and when they go home, they sleep, they do their homework and they can’t wait to get back in the gym.”

Sparring Sense The sparring ring is the psychic center of a boxing gym. Boxers fight. To prepare to fight, boxers must spar. A real fighter can’t wait to get into the ring. Its time for the show to begin, and Ruben Sr. agrees to let two eager teenage boys suit up to spar. The teens shimmy into their groin protectors, slip in their mouthpieces, pull padded headgear over their ears and have their gauze-wrapped hands tied into the leather boxing gloves. This is what they came for: to hit each other. Everybody in the gym halts their workouts to stop and watch, gathering around the ring’s ropes to see these two young men duke it out. Robert and his dad each man a corner, and from the exhilaration on their faces,

it’s obvious they both thrive on the threshold of real combat. When the bell rings, the two skinny boys rush toward one another, punching wildly. Standing with their arms on the ropes on either corner of the ring, the Guerreros holler instructions to their padded little warriors. “Keep your head up.” “Get more busy, Aaron.” “Stick your jab.” “Don’t hit the back of the head, just the face.” “Come on, Tony, he’s tired.” Bystanders can see the young, inexperienced men in the ring faltering between anger and fear. Sweat dribbles from their pores, the tension pressing and binding as one boy, beginning to show dominance in the second round, lands a few solid punches. Enraged at the punishment and wanting to hurt back, the opponent lunges after the dominant kid in frustration. But, with his head down, mouthpiece bulging from his lips, every wild miss slews the kid off balance. At the beginning of the third round, the dominant teen throws an elbow to his opponent’s head by mistake, sending the young man to the canvas. Robert and his dad rush in, and call off the sparring match. The teen stands up, then dips under the ropes and jumps to the side of the ring where they untie his gloves. The reddened face underneath his headgear betrays that he’s holding back tears. He separates himself from the group and walks a few paces away from the ring. As he halfheartedly hits a punching bag, it’s clear that the young man’s pride is more hurt than his body. Then Guerrero walks over to talk to him. “I just told him, ‘Look what happened to me,’” Guerrero says later. “‘I got headbutted in front of all of my fans in Gilroy and San Jose, I got head butted and wasn’t able to fight.’ I said, ‘Don’t worry about it, you ran into an elbow, just sit out a little bit and recover.’ “We’re going to get him ice, now.

A Beast Currently in remission again, Casey is doing much better. She will continue to receive chemotherapy for another year. But for the first time since his wife was diagnosed with cancer, Robert felt comfortable enough to fly to Los Angeles at the beginning of May to train intensely for his June 12 fight. “She’s doing great,” he says. “That has been the most tough fight I have ever been in, just watching her fight her fight.

JUNE 3-9, 2009 M E T R O S I L I C O N VA L L E Y

ROBERT GUERRERO 21 she’s doing real good now, and I thank God that she’s on it, and she’s getting healthy.” Professional boxers spend over a month before a big fight at what is referred to as “camp,” focusing solely on preparing for the match, and sparring with other worldclass fighters. They hit up all the big boxing gyms, working out, eating right and resting up for the big day.

‘My last 16 fights, I knocked out about 14 guys, and they were exciting knockouts, where the guys are barely getting up, and they were beat up bad. I get a cut, the fight gets stopped, and everybody is like, “Wow, what happened?” I guess it’s because they are so used to seeing me so dominant.’ that if anything else happens, they are befuddled. “L.A., that’s where the tough guys are at,” Ruben Sr. says. “At those kinds of gyms, if one guy don’t cut it, we’ll just put in another guy. Robert usually goes through three, four guys when sparring. They get hurt and jump out, so they get fresh guys to jump in, three, four rounds with each guy. “They can’t handle more then that with Robert. He’s a beast, man, Robert, when he’s on his A-game all the time.” As this story goes to print, Guerrero will be at the peak of his training, having spent five weeks in L.A. working out and sparring with other pros at worldclass gyms, like Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, the gym Manny Pacquiao trained at for his

victorious match over Ricky Hatton on May 2. (Robert’s money was on Pacquiao that fight. He makes sure to catch every match, viewing the Filipino fighter as his future competition.) Though Johnnie Edwards isn’t an ideal opponent for Guerrero to get HBO’s attention with again (Edwards has lost three of his past five fights), another win may serve as a jumping off point for a junior-lightweight title shot in August. Two days before leaving for camp in Los Angeles, Guerrero expressed excitement about the upcoming fight, and disappointment in the negative way many of his fans reacted to his last match. Sitting in Sue’s Coffee Roasting Company in downtown Gilroy on a rainy Friday evening, Robert wears Adidas, gym shorts and a huge oversize hooded sweatshirt with “Team Guerrero” scrawled on the front in red letters. Guerrero’s massive sweatshirt comes down past his groin, practically swallowing him up when he sits, making him look more slight and boyish then ever. “Boxing is a weird sport, the fans, the promoters, the TV networks,” Guerrero says. “It’s mind-boggling the way they work. “My last 16 fights, I knocked out about 14 guys, and they were exciting knockouts, where the guys are barely getting up, and they were beat up bad. I get a cut, the fight gets stopped, and everybody is like, ‘Wow, what happened?’ I guess it’s because they are so used to seeing me so dominant, that if anything else happens, they are befuddled. “The fight before this last fight, I knocked the guy out 42 seconds in. I knocked him out, body shot, he couldn’t get up. The guy before that, I just destroyed the guy. It was like a massacre, it looked like the guy had run into a chain saw, and he couldn’t go on anymore. The fight before that, I knocked the guy out, 56 seconds with the first shot I hit him with, out cold. And one little thing goes wrong. . . .” Guerrero pauses and thinks before completing his sentence. “But that’s the way boxing is, and I just have to fight my way out of the corner. It’s exciting, though, because now I’ve got something else to prove.” “This little cut, they did a great job stitching it up, and on June 12, I’ll be back. I can’t wait. They’re going to get what they love to see. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more Mr. Soft Guy. I just can’t wait to put on a show for everybody.” As he gets up and walks toward the coffeehouse door, another customer comes in and recognizes him. “Hey, watched your last fight,” the local says. Robert smiles and waves goodbye, slipping on his hood and heading across the street to Garlic City Billiards for a round of pool, just like any other local kid. M

Exploring...

THE VIEW FROM HERE IT SEEMS LIKE we can’t even flip on the computer these days without Mountain View shaking up our lives. The latest game-changer to come from deep within the hive mind of the Googleplex is Google Wave, which is set to change the very nature of how we communicate online when it breaks big later this year. That’s the kind of revolution that rolls out of the city’s tech core on a regular basis. But Mountain View isn’t just some kind of Google annex, even if free, Sergey-sponsored wireless for life is a pretty great local perk. Perhaps more than any other city in Silicon Valley, Mountain View has struck a balance between high-tech futurism and a classic neighborhood feel. Castro Street became the hub of downtown way back when the railroad first came to town, and its evolution into a pedestrian-friendly central strip has shaped the Mountain View experience. For one, it’s been fertile ground for a lively after-hours scene that allows crowds of night owls to roam from extended-hour stores like Books Inc. to bustling restaurants like Cascal to the street’s many bars. It’s also been a boon for the arts, drawing audiences to the popular Center for the Performing Arts. Add in other fixtures around the city like the Shoreline Amphitheatre, its adjacent acres of trails and open space and the Computer History Museum, and it’s obvious that—despite the low expectations of the early residents who named it—this place has a lot more to offer than a nice view of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Dining Scene

The Players of Castro M

OUNTAIN VIEW’S fine dining scene is clustered within its walkable downtown, on and around Castro Street. Here are some of Stett Holbrook’s favorites; find a complete listing at mountainview.net.

Amber Cafe Amber Cafe is a different kind of fast food. The kitchen strives to prepare each order within 10 minutes, and most dishes go for well under $10. But Amber Cafe breaks from the fast food mold with the quality of food it serves. The cafe, which describes itself as “Indian bits and bites,” is the more casually dressed little brother of Amber India Restaurant. The food sparkles with just-made freshness, creative interpretations of Indian food and bold, assertive flavors that are anything but watered down for Western tastes.

Mon–Fri 10am–2:30pm and 5–10pm, Sat noon–10:30pm and Sun noon–10pm. $3.99–$9.99. 600 W. El Camino Real; 650.968.1751.

Amber India Amber India pretty much owns the Indian food fine-dining category in Silicon Valley. This area is awash in Indian restaurants, and many of them are quite good, but Amber’s combination of white table-cloth elegance, swanky cocktails and first-rate regional and contemporary Indian food has made its restaurants in Mountain View and San Jose must-eats in Silicon Valley. The Santana Row location has more flash and polish than the Mountain View restaurant, but this is where the it all began. Daily 11:30am–2:30pm and 5–10pm. $12–$34. 2290 El Camino Real; 650.968.7511.

Bodrum Café Turkish food doesn’t get much play in Silicon Valley, but Bodrum Café is one of the few places in the South Bay to sample what is arguably one of the world’s great cuisines. Because Turkey straddles Western Europe and the Middle East, the country’s cuisine is influenced by the Middle East, the Caucasus and Europe. But it’s a cuisine all its own. Even if you’re not familiar with Turkish food and find the inscrutable, hard-to-pronounce names of the dishes intimidating (zeytinyagi yaprak sarmasi, anyone?), the food is actually pretty familiar and easy to like—especially for fans of lamb. Daily 10am–10pm. Entrees $9.95–$24.95. 383 Castro St.; 650.396.7010. 26

EXPLORING MOUNTAIN VIEW THE PLAYERS OF CASTRO 25 Cascal Don Durante’s enduringly popular Cascal is Silicon Valley’s premier restaurant for Spanish tapas and lively small plates from throughout Latin America. Where other metropolitan areas have embraced Spain’s small-plates concept, few restaurants here have taken it as seriously as Cascal. Larger dishes shine, too, like the paella, puerco Cubano en mojo, Moroccan lamb and couscous, and Argentine mixed grill- flatiron, marinated chicken and lamb chops served with chimichurri sauce. Lunch Mon–Sun 11:30am–2:30pm; dinner Sun– Thu 5–10pm, Fri–Sat 5–11pm. $6–$25. 400 Castro St.; 650.940.9500.

Chez T.J. Chef Bruno Chemel carries on the tradition of inventive, modern French food at Chez T.J. For dinner, your choices are the $85 per person menu gastronomique or the extravagant chef ’s tasting menu for $120 per person. Wine pairings for each go for $140 and $195, respectively. Chemel’s highly personal, intensely seasonally style of cooking can be exceptional. While there’s technique and labor behind Chemel’s dishes, on the plate his food is an exercise in restraint. There’s a lot

of white space on his plates and he uses food as a kind of edible ink on the china canvas, dabbing a bead of sauce here and a few strands of vegetable and delicately composed meat there. Sometimes the lessis-more aesthetic could use a little more food. But when it works, the presentation reminds me of a Calder mobile with the disparate elements all hanging delicately in place. Tue–Thu 5:30–9pm and Fri–Sat 5:30–9:30pm. $85–$120, without wine pairings. 938 Villa St.; 650.964.7466.

Maru Ichi Maru Ichi is a true noodle shop. While there are a few appetizers on the menu such as potstickers, tuna rolls and kakuni—wonderfully fatty stewed pork belly—you come here for ramen. The restaurant is a bare-bones but comfortable place. A horseshoe-shaped counter sits at the center flanked by comfortable reddish vinyl booths. Madcap Japanese game shows play on the (thankfully) silent televisions on the wall. What you hear instead is lots of contented slurping. Kuro ramen is the house specialty and for good reason. The broth isn’t exactly black, but an opaque, earthy brown. It’s rich and deeply flavorful, no doubt the result The Players of Castro 28

Getting Out in Mountain View

T

HE SHORELINE Amphitheatre isn’t just Mountain View’s biggest live music venue. It’s also the gateway to most of its recreational space. Shoreline Park is 544 acres of trails, salt ponds and open space frequented by hikers, bikers and rollerbladers from all over. It’s accessible from North Shoreline Drive, but it’s not always clearly marked for those who come by car, so here are the basics:

Crittenden Hill The place to start for exploring Shoreline Park’s trails, this practically unmarked spot is located directly behind the fire station, next to the parking for Shoreline Amphitheatre. The hill has about three-quarter miles of trails through and around it. From the top, it’s possible to see the layout of the trail network, not to mention Moffett Field, Google, the ponds, Sunnyvale, the mountains and everything else for miles around.

Stevens Creek Trail The main trail in Mountain View, this stretches from Shoreline Drive (at Crittenden Lane, or North Road) to Yuba Drive, with about four miles of wide, paved trail suitable for all kinds of activities. On weekends, the trail gets particularly busy.

Hetch-Hetchy Trail This half-mile of trail connects Stevens Creek to the Middlefield Light Rail Station, for public-transit access. It stretches from North Whisman Road to Whisman Park.

SHOPPING GUIDE

True Retail Therapy ;Za^eZ7j^igV\d

H

ERE’S WHERE to find some of Mountain View’s most interesting shopping spots. More picks can be found at mountainview.net.

Therapy Therapy is like a cooler, less pretentious Urban Outfitters. Their large men’s and women’s clothing section is for the youngand-hip set, the garments creatively arranged by color. Unlike Urban Outfitters, Therapy’s quality control seems to be consistent and top notch, with an eclectic mix of well-made pieces in funky, urban styles that won’t fall apart in the washer. They carry an array of brands like Betseyville and Nixon, and with the store’s long stretch of roomy dressing rooms at the back, shoppers will never have to wait in line to try on a top or skirt. At the front of the store is a small interior design, art and stationary section, with kitschy gag gifts, anime-style sculptures, furniture and accessories. 250 Castro St.; 650.691.1186.

Mystyq Boutique Selling lots of long, layered skirts, glittery tops and semiprecious baubles, Mystyq is a small, densely packed little clothes shop perfect for the mature woman with a penchant for the New Age. Much of their exercise, yoga, Pilates and casual wear is hand-painted and handmade, stretchy and conservative enough in cut to keep women covered. They also carry a selection of themed purses, cats being the most popular adornment. A collection of textured tops at the front of the shop comes in a rainbow of colors. 282 Castro St.; 650.964.4323.

Mountain View Tea Village and Gallery Passers-by can smell the exotic teas and spices wafting out of this Asian interior design and tea shop before they even step in the door. With huge jars of high-grade looseleaf teas from Taiwan and China lining the walls, both tea connoisseurs and novices can appreciate the rare oolong, black, green and pu-erh teas they sell. The back of Mountain View Tea Village and Gallery is entirely dedicated to unique Asian decorations, art and furniture, from hefty carved dragon statues to 4-foot-high geodes to glass Buddhas. 275 Castro St.; 650.988.1939.

Boutique 4 Boutique 4 is the place to go on Castro Street for flowing dresses in classic cuts that still manage to be fun, with bold prints and patterns. Though not a shop for teenybopper clientele, they have a sizable variety of flattering baby-doll dresses and long maxi dresses, both of which are big on the fashion circuit right now. The gigantic leather couch

in the middle of the airily laid out boutique gives boyfriends a place to take a load off when tagging along on a female shopping excursion. 279 Castro St.; 650.903.9444.

Plumeria This tiny, yellow-painted shop is a compact hodgepodge of high-end consignment garments. Located on Villa Street, just off of the Castro Street strip, Plumeria sells big-name couture brands for a lot less. Still, shoppers should give themselves some time if they stop by. The racks are very tightly packed and rather disorganized, meaning one has to get elbow deep to make great finds. 714 Villa St.; 650.964.3749.

Global Beads Inc. Global Beads Inc. is a place for serious beaders and jewelry makers to stock up on professional-quality wearable art supplies. Not simply a hobby shop, this location has table after table of Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, horn, bone, shell, stone, wood, silver and gold beads, with strings of blownglass trinkets and wooden African masks lining the walls. In the glass cases near the front door can be found lots of exotic silver work from India, Africa, Burma and Thailand, including “Hands of Fatima” from Morocco and Ganesha pendants from India. Global Beads Inc. will soon be

installing a “Live Museum of Beadwork and Jewelry,” a substantial collection of vintage and historical jewelry pieces that will be up for sale. Much of the store is also devoted to women’s and men’s clothing, shoes and accessories, featuring simple, bohemian-style designs. 345 Castro St.; 650.967.7556.

owner Katia also teaches monthly handson classes in Moroccan cooking. This fairtrade Moroccan import company also has a great display of ceramics and dinnerware, including tagines, tea sets, colorful Moroccan glass and glazed Mediterranean tiles. 793 Castro St.; 650.630.1881.

Giovanna’s

Nalli Silks

This intimate luxury jewelry shop excels at high-end customer service. Elegant, modern-style bling sparkles in this small location’s many cases. They have generous displays of diamonds and precious and semistone designs, as well as simple gold, white gold, silver and titanium creations. Owner Giovanna herself will help couples with impending nuptials pick out perfectly matching wedding bands. They also custommake rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, and can re-create hard to find forms and sizes. 655 Castro St.; 650.938.4680.

Casablanca Market This Middle Eastern import, gift and furniture store sells intricately decorated hookahs, leather poufs, thick tapestries, glass lanterns and carved wooden tables. Also available are spices like saffron and bottles of rosewater, to help buyers feel like they are in a far-off local. In addition to event planning and home design services,

Whether shoppers want to look like a Bollywood star or are attending a traditional Indian wedding, Nalli Silks on West El Camino Real can serve all their sari needs.

Nami Nami Need to impress food-loving friends or clients in town from Japan? Nami Nami is the place to go. Nami Nami is a kappostyle Japanese restaurant. Kappo is food prepared in the artful, labor-intensive, seasonally driven style associated with the city of Kyoto. It’s similar to kaiseki, but less formal and not served in set courses. Kappo food is also known for its use of nontraditional, Western ingredients. It’s like a sushi bar, but the menu is broader and the chef ’s repertoire greater. The food at Nami Nami can be otherworldly. There’s nothing like it in Silicon Valley. Tue–Sun 11:30am–2pm and 6–10pm. $4–$18. 240 Castro St.; 650.964.6990.

Rose International Market Although it’s located on Castro Street west of El Camino Real and away from the city’s restaurant row, Rose International Market is a must-stop. The Persian market

has some of the best food the city has to offer. Part Middle Eastern grocery store, part Persian food takeout counter and part kebab grill, Rose International Market is a gold mine of good food. Once you find a place to park, head inside the store to the checkout stand and place your order. The cashier will read your order into a microphone. Then you head outside and around the corner of the building where two cooks labor over a busy grill. Stop by at lunchtime and you’ll see what makes this place such a destination. The white plastic tables out front are packed with customers eating the market’s signature mesquite-grilled kebabs. Market open Mon–Sat 8am–9pm, Sun 9am–8pm; kebab grill open Mon–Sat 11am–8pm, Sun 11am– 7pm. $2–$7. 1060 Castro St.; 650.960.1900.

Sushi Tomi Located off Castro Street’s restaurant row on West Dana Street, Sushi Tomi isn’t much to look at from the outside. Inside, it’s a tidy place with a dining room on one side and a sushi bar and a few tables on the other. But the place has been open for nearly a decade and gets crowded quickly with a mainly Japanese clientele. The sushi here is some of the best in Silicon Valley.

Uncle Frank’s BBQ Restaurant I don’t where it comes from, but every once in a while I get a powerful hankering for a messy plate of barbecue. Barbecue elicits a visceral craving in me that must be satisfied. It also gets me to say things like “powerful hankering.” Problem is, good barbecue is scarce in these parts. That’s why Uncle Frank’s BBQ Restaurant is a such an asset to Silicon Valley dining. The brisket and pork ribs are the best I’ve had this side of Texas. The odds are already stacked in Uncle Frank’s favor just because of the setting. It’s located in the back of Francesca’s, a windowless bar and pool room. If those aren’t auspicious surroundings for a barbecue joint, I don’t know what is. First timers may wonder if they’re in the wrong place as they enter the dimly lit bar and the regulars swivel on their stools to look at you, but then the whiff of wood smoke hits you, and you know you’re in the right place. It’s actually not the right place if you’re under 21, but there is a patio out back where minors are welcome. Tue–Fri 11:30am–2:30pm and 5–8pm; Sat noon–2:30pm and 5–8pm. Dinners $13–$16.75. 2135 Old Middlefield Way; 650.964.4476.

Xanh Xanh epitomizes the new breed of upscale, contemporary Vietnamese restaurants popping up across Silicon Valley. Although few in number relative to the many low-rent pho shops and banh mi joints, these modern Vietnamese restaurants are developing into a restaurant category all their own. Borrowing techniques and ingredients from the West while showcasing traditional Vietnamese dishes in stylish dining rooms backed by cool beats and lively bar scenes, these places are pushing boundaries like no other “ethnic” restaurants in the South Bay. Xanh opened three years ago, but moved across restaurantpacked Castro Street two months ago into a bigger space that boasts a full bar and lounge that fronts sexy, multichambered dining rooms lit by soft green and blue lights. It’s a greatlooking place that feels more like stepping into a club than a restaurant. Daily 5pm–close. $11–$27. 110 Castro St.; 650.964.1888. M

5 Places to Go Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts The focus for music and theater arts in Mountain View is the handsome Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, built in 1991. With a MainStage seating 600, and an intimate SecondStage in a flexible black-box arrangement that seats 200, the comfortable and acoustically superior center is home to several theater and dance companies and hosts a yearround roster of visiting troupes and community groups. On any given night, the center might provide a showcase for the Pacific Ballet Academy or put the spotlight on a world-renowned classical musician.The center’s innovative layout allows for outdoor performances that take advantage of the warm summer nights. 500 Castro St., Mountain View. Box office: 650.903.6000.

TheatreWorks The peninsula’s awardwinning theater company, now celebrating its 40th year, splits its productions between the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts and the Lucie Stern Theater in Palo Alto. The professional company begins its season in midJuly and offers four to five plays a year in Mountain View. The productions range from original musicals and premieres of dramas and comedies by young playwrights to revivals of major plays. Since its founding in 1970, the company has mounted nearly three-score world premieres. Ticket prices range from the mid-$20s to mid$60s. See www.theatreworks.org for details. Children’s Theatre in the Park This annual display of fairy tales and classic kids’ stories is presented on the ParkStage in the plaza outside the Center by Peninsula Youth Theatre and the city of Mountain View. Families are encouraged to bring picnics along for the free shows. The series runs Fridays, June 26– Aug. 14, at 6:30pm (with the July 3 performance moved up to July 2 this year). 650.988.8798. The Computer History Museum Being in the heart of Silicon Valley, Mountain View boasts a major collection of materials relating to the creation and development of the computer. One of the biggest draws is the mighty Babbage Engine, a working reconstruction of Charles Babbage’s mechanical marvel from the 19th century. This gleaming array of highly polished gears and wheels—with more than 8,000 parts and weighing in at 5 tons—is a working replica of the first calculating machine. Open Wednesday– Friday and Sunday noon–4pm, Saturday 11am– 5pm. Free. 1401 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View. 650.810.1010.

Shoreline Amphitheatre The mighty Shoreline is one of the Bay Area’s most important concert venues. At full capacity, Shoreline can hold nearly 30,000 concertgoers—more than 6,000 in reserved seats, and 22,000 sprawled on the lawn. Now more than 20 years old, and the survivor of numerous battles over noise complaints, the amphitheater books scores of concerts and events by the biggest names in music. 1 Amphitheatre Pkwy., Mountain View; 650.967.3000

THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT!!B!uvojd!cz!Ejbof!wpo!Gvstufocfsh!! gfbuvsft!b!cpme!cmbdl!boe!xijuf!cvuufsàz!npujg/

Winged Victory HE FASHION FORWARD will be fluttering around this summer decorated in moths and monarchs thanks to the rising popularity of the butterfly motif. Integrated extensively into prints and jewelry this season, the little winged insects set a cheery, ethereal, carefree tone in otherwise tough times for both the world and the fashion industry. The resurgence in popularity of the butterfly reflects their fragile, graceful characteristics as symbols of ever-changing beauty and metamorphosis (not unlike a recovery from recession), not to mention their natural ability to come in spectacular color combinations. Long a favorite inspiration for designers, the last time the butterfly phase was in full swing was back in the ’90s, when every girl 12–40 started sporting minibutterfly clips and barrettes in their hair. Mariah Carey latched onto the trend and has been carrying the torch for the butterfly in the celebrity spectrum ever since. Now, she can proudly do so without looking dated. Butterfly-adorned styles play up looks that are elegant yet playful, without being trite. One can incorporate the butterfly trend into a wardrobe in several ways, with accessories being a great jumping-off point. With all the bangles and pendants adorned with fluttery beauties available in stores right now, it won’t be hard to indulge, like a chunky butterfly cuff by Jessica Kagan Cushman or a gold Luella entangled butterfly necklace by Dannijo, both sold at shopbop.com. The next step up is a charming butterfly top, like the Twenty8Twelve silk violet top, which features scattered clusters of bright butterflies. The trend can also go in a charmingly retro-inspired psychedelic direction, with dripping, tie-dyed butterflies to brighten up the wardrobe on casual screen-printed tees. Badgley Mischka recently showed a variety of haute evening gowns sporting soft violet butterflies, while Juicy Couture used metallic foil-tone butterflies all over their bathing suits and summer dresses. One great thing about butterflies is that, like any bold print, they can become a great figure camouflage. Diane von Furstenberg used a bold black-and-white butterfly pattern as one of her signature themes for spring ’09, incorporating it into airy tunics and dresses. Look for this print to be much copied by other designers in seasons to come, especially as the butterfly trend extends into the fall with a more geometric, goth-tinged feel. Jessica Fromm

I

N THIS ECONOMY, everyone needs a Plan B, a backup strategy if things really go south. I love my job, but if I should suddenly ďŹ nd myself out of work, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve devised a second career for myself: ramen master. When I say ramen, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the 33-cent bags of dried noodles and packet of salty dust beloved by dorm-dwelling students everywhere. I mean real Japanese-style ramen, a simple yet luxuriously satisfying bowl of fresh, springy noodles buoyed by an intensely rich and ďŹ&#x201A;avorful porky broth that has been larded with things like soft-boiled eggs, braised pork, spinach, pickled bamboo shoots and perhaps a few sheets of dried seaweed. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ramen, one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest foods: cheap, fast, nourishing yet deliciously hedonistic. As a food critic and former line cook, I know just enough about the restaurant business to know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard work with long hours and thin proďŹ t margins. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather eat for a living than cook. But I still fantasize about opening a little ramen shop. Of course, one doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become a ramen master overnight. It takes training and discipline. According to my Plan B, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spend a year or so studying under ramen masters

in Japan, traveling throughout the country to learn the intricacies of different styles of ramen. Finally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ďŹ nd a stern but fair ramensan whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d school me in the art of ramen. But ďŹ rst Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to humble myself and sweep up for months before Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be allowed to even boil water. Then, after showing my earnestness and commitment, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be trained in the ways of ramen. Once I had learned all I could, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d thank my kind ramen master and come back to the United States and open my own ramen counter, a small place with just a few stools and an even smaller menu, maybe just a few varieties of ramen, including a classic shio and shoyu ramen. Customers who asked for California rolls or tempura would be politely asked to leave. With luck, those who remained would enjoy my ramen, and my fame and fortune as Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole gaijin ramen master would follow. At least, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my fantasy. But then again, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak Japanese, so that might make my ramen education difficult. And I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I could support my family as a ramen apprentice running around Japan. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the part about all those long hard hours running a restaurant. I guess I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a Plan B after all. So I hope I

can stick with Plan A, eating food and writing about it. And because Silicon Valley is blessed with several top-notch ramen shops, I can further my education in the way of the noodle without having to travel to Japan. I can go to places like Ryowa in Mountain View. Ryowa is a classic Silicon Valley ramen restaurant. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s typically a queue of people waiting to get in at lunch, mainly Japanese expats looking for a taste of home. If you ďŹ nd yourself waiting, you can browse the small library of manga books (Japanese comics) on the shelf. Inside, there are two square-shaped counters as well as a few tables. For the real ramen experience, sit at the counter. Eight bucks gets you a choice of ramen, a plate of good, nongreasy gyoza and steamed rice. Spend 50 cents more, and you get fried rice instead. The Ryowa sesame ramen is the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ&#x201A;agship, and it combines the salty tang of a miso broth with the nutty goodness of sesame paste. The opaque, yellowish broth is on the lighter side of the spectrum but still possess depth of ďŹ&#x201A;avor and character. The bowl is garnished with slices of unremarkable sliced pork, spinach,

half a boiled egg and sliced green onions. The springy, thin-gauge noodles hold up well to the end. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a large bowl, which I appreciate. I have a habit of ďŹ nishing all my food no matter how large the serving, and this one didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave me feeling all full and sleepy for the rest of the afternoon. The butter corn ramen doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear too often in local ramen shops and I was pleased to see it at Ryowa, but in the end I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth seeking out. The broth is a rather mild-mannered shio (saltbased) soup with the addition of a pat of melting butter. Coupled with the butter, the corn adds a sweetness to the broth that rounds out the salty edge, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a rather ho-hum soup. Better is the shoyu ramen, a soy sauceâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based broth thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s richer and more complex than that description would imply. But my favorite of all is the tonkotsu ramen ($8.50 and not available as a combo meal). All of Ryowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ramen are on the lighter side, but the tonkotsu, made from long simmering pork bones, is the richest and most thoroughly delicious. Pork will do that. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to Plan A!

Ask the Sommelier

INCE 1977, San Joseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Le Papillonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has been one of Silicon Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier ďŹ ne-dining destinations. The wine list of more than 700 selections is overseen by sommelier Camron Mashayekh. The list showcases classics from California, Bordeaux and Burgundy as well as from the lesserknown regions of Alsace and the Rhone Valley.

S

METRO: Why did you decide to pursue a career in wine?

CAMRON MASHAYEKH: I grew up being exposed to good food and wines, and when I started working in restaurants, it was a very easy decision for me to focus on wines. I love exploring the world of wine, and working as a sommelier is a great way to do it. What makes the wine list at Le Papillon special? What I like best about our wine list is the variety of wine style and vintages that are represented. We do our best to hold on to some of the best wines in special vintages so that we can offer more than just the currently released vintage of a particular wine. We have verticals of some of the best producers, so if you are looking for something a little more mature and subtle there are some really nice options. What wine or wines are you passionate about right now? I have particular love for Rhone Valley wines, both from the northern and southern Rhone Valleys. I also think many Napa Valley cabernet producers are making their best wines ever. The understanding of microclimates and vineyard management are better understood now, and it is improving the wines. What are some of the best wine values now?

I think the best value wines right now come from lesser-known regions of Italy and Spain. Argentina is also making some very good value malbecs. As for white wines, I think California has some very good values in less-popular varietals like pinot gris and even some viogniers.

What is your go-to wine for every day, casual drinking? I tend to try different wines all the time, but I do love champagne and Charles Heidseick and has been a favorite lately. Stett Holbrook

Dandy Dandelion

I

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;M ALWAYS saying I long for more vegan restaurants in the South Bay and on the peninsula. And for vegan restaurants that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t based on Chinese cuisine with faux meat. Not to dis my faves of that genre, Garden Fresh in Mountain View and Merit Vegetarian in Sunnyvale, but how about something like Greens, Herbivore, Millennium or Chaya Japaneseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all wonderful options when in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;how about a little diversity? Well, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new vegan restaurant in town, and while it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfy that longing of mine for something signiďŹ cantly different, it is a worthy addition to my personal list of go-to spots. Dandelion Vegetarian Cafe in downtown San Jose may be tiny, but it has a simple, whimsical interior and intriguing menu. Its most notable quality, though, is how amazingly affordably priced it is. You could spend under $10 and not only have dinner that night but a full lunch or dinner for the next day. With more of a Vietnamese bent than Chinese, you can get familiar appetizer favorites like drumsticks (three pieces for $2.95) and pot stickers (four pieces for $3.50) and also a variety of noodle bowls and rice plates. I got the drumsticks, and they were succulent without being too greasy. I also got what I can only say is an unusual entree: spaghetti with â&#x20AC;&#x153;beef â&#x20AC;? chunk tomato sauce and veggie steak ($5.90). Spaghetti and tomato sauce at a place like Dandelion was a bit unexpected, as was the steak cutlet on the side (which seemed more like a faux ham slice than â&#x20AC;&#x153;steakâ&#x20AC;?). While I liked the â&#x20AC;&#x153;steak,â&#x20AC;? the next time I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t order spaghetti. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better left to an Italian restaurant. Meanwhile, my dining companion got a noodle bowl, attractively priced at under $6 and clearly more in Dandelionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweet spot. Steaming, savory broth, fresh vegetables, earthy mushrooms, strips of bean curd. A meal in a bowlâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe two or three meals! My favorite part of the meal was actually dessert. I ordered a rice pudding made with black rice in a pool of a white â&#x20AC;&#x153;creamyâ&#x20AC;? sauce called Pulut Hitaum ($3.90). Rice pudding is one of those favorites I gave up when I made the transition from vegetarian to vegan, so now I know where to go when I get the craving! With an extensive menu of low-priced, generously portioned selections, stop by Dandelion for a quick lunch or dinner in the SJSU area. Elisa Camahort (siliconveggie@workerbees.biz)

Adding Up To Zero San Jose’s high-tech arts biennial, 01SJ, brings subZERO cyberfantasia festival to South First Friday By Gary Singh

S GOLDEN OLDIE DiLoGti!nbtife!vq! pctdvsjujft!gspn!2:61t! UW!xjui!fmfdusptubujd! hmff!evsjoh!uif!3119! tvc[FSP!gftujwbm/

INCE ALL COMPUTERS can be simplified down to the base-2 binary system of ones and zeros, 01SJ turned out to be a perfect nom de plume for a Silicon Valley art biennial based in downtown San Jose. Similar festivals exploring the crossovers between art, new media, technology and critical theory exist in numerous other international locales, especially Europe, where such events like Ars Electronica, transmediale, Futuresonic and the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival in Rotterdam virtually take over their prospective cities for a week or so. As San Jose’s newish equivalent festival, 01SJ, occurs every two years, a unique idea emerged to ratchet up the hype in the interim: stage a street festival called subZERO every year, including off-years when the main biennial isn’t taking place—so that the event as a whole stays on everyone’s radar. The first incarnation of subZERO took place on the Friday night during the 2008 01SJ Biennial and was easily the bohemian cyberdelic crème de la crème of the entire festival. In coordination with South First Fridays, each participating

downtown gallery showcased techrelated works; bands performed on multiple stages; videos were projected on buildings; indie vendors and interactive exhibits flanked the three city blocks; and a wide variety of people showed up: kids, adults, hipsters, corporate types, burners, artists, politicians, punks, programmers and the lunatic fringe. The entire vibe was high-tech, planetary and abstractly machinic. It was two parts Mondo2000 Magazine– era cyberpunk counterculture, one part chic urban hacker sideshow and one part field trip for the schoolkids. If that seems convoluted, it is, and you’re just going to have to go downtown and see what I mean, as this Friday (June 5) marks the second iteration of subZERO, from 6pm to midnight, all along South First Street, from San Carlos to William. The regular First Friday galleries (Caffé Trieste, Anno Domini, SJICA, the Quilt & Textiles Museum, Slave Labor Graphics, WORKS/San Jose, MACLA, South First Billiards, Space 47 and, a few blocks away, Kaleid Gallery) will again showcase something techrelated. Metro will introduce its new photo exhibit in its lobby. A crackpot

variety of artists and vendors will occupy the entire street. Here are just a few examples of what will transpire: Tristan Shone will perform on the William Street stage with his Drone Machines: custom-made industrial sound makers, fabricated from scratch of raw materials, and utilizing open source circuitry. The machines create a multitimbral sonic ocean requiring significant physical interaction by Shone himself. Presenting what can truly be deemed “electric performance art,” John Behrens and Omega Recoil will incorporate a team of high-level “rat scientists” using a 1.3 million-volt Tesla coil to perform experiments on living human test subjects wearing special metal suits. Margaretha Anne Haughwout will operate a 21st-century divination set, built from electrical components and generating psychic readings as musical language-based scores that relate the inquiring individual to various meanings of power. In a project geared for kids but suitable for anyone, Fabiola Hanna will provide a mobile interactive space inside a U-Haul truck, where visitors enter a multitouch world

where movements result in various reactions of the space through lighting, drawings, sound and touch. Over at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, Corinne Okada Takara will take plastic bags and bottles she gathered from schools, as well as from Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek cleanups, and supply them for people to use as materials for creating small sculptures of algae and diatoms, to be integrated into large 3-D banners and installed across the facade of the museum. Throw in alternative clothing vendors, photography exhibits, improvised percussion, DJs, 3-D visuals, urban yarn-bombing, shadow puppet theater, custom lowrider bicycles and alternative MIDI controllers—and you have all the fat pickings one would expect from a festival describing itself as an “artistically bent, hi/lo-technomashup where street meets geek.” SUBZERO takes place Friday (June 5), 6pm–midnight, in conjunction with SOUTH FIRST FRIDAY, all along South First Street in downtown San Jose. For details, see www.subzero festival.com. (Full Disclosure: Metro is one of the sponsors of subZERO.)

San Jose Stage Company’s ‘Trailer Park’ music pokes fun at Florida’s finest

P

OLE DANCING, incest, agoraphobia, pink flamingoes, huffing—The Sound of Music this play is not. The Great American Trailer Park Musical, San Jose Stage Company’s latest, is musical comedy theater seen through the lens of Jerry Springer, a low-class soap opera set to tunes about cheatin’ men in beat-up pickups and women with big hair who collect commemorative NASCAR plates. With the depth of a blow-up kiddy pool, the play aims for little more than to make the audience laugh, and most of the time hits that mark. Set in Armadillo Acres, a Florida trailer park on “This Side of the Tracks” (as the opening number points out), the loose story line focuses on the marital drama of Jeannie (Lydia Lyons), an agoraphobe who hasn’t left the confines of her doublewide in two decades, and her beer guzzling, toll-booth-attendant husband, Norbert (Kevin Blackton). After trying unsuccessfully to lure his wife out of the trailer with tickets to the Ice Capades, Norbert starts an affair with Pippi (Allison F. Rich, whose gams go on for miles). A stripper by night, Pippi rolls into the trailer park on the run from her Pam-huffing, guntouting ex-boyfriend Duke (Robert Brewer), and drama, hilarity and mullet potshots ensue. The production is narrated by a Greek chorus of Armadillo Acres residents who sit on their lawn chairs commenting on the action: big-haired Betty (Diana Torres Koss), statepen conjugal-visiting Lin (Keite Davis) and the perpetually hysterically pregnant Pickles (an impeccably comically timed Halsey Varady). The show dances the line (literally) between making fun of its low-class cast of characters, and reveling in their white-cracker lifestyle. Heavy on the kitsch and decidedly politically uncorrect, the two-hour play sometimes comes off like an extended “You might be a redneck if . . .” joke. Still, the production is saved by a talented cast who truly seem to be having fun with their roles. With its delightfully tawdry approach, there is little surprise that the play was a 2005 off-Broadway hit created by two former Rocky Horror cast members, David Nehls and Betsy Kelso. The Great American Trailer Park Musical still carries many of the musical niceties of an old-school cabaret, including choreographed dancing, tight harmonies and layered melodies. Alongside the spewing of four-letter words and a tame strip scene, Lyons and Koss do some first-class belting, though Blackton’s voice was often weak and off-tune. The strongest number of the production was “Flushed Down the Pipes.” With a ’60s girl-group sound, the song is led by Jeannie (an entertainingly neurotic Lyons). As she laments her husband’s infidelity, the trio of Betty, Lin and Pickles provide backup vocals and waltz around her in aprons and dishwashing gloves, twirling toilet brushes. The music ranges from twangy, Loretta Lynnesque ballads (“Owner of My Heart”) to disco (“Storm’s A-Brewin’”) and rock (“Road Kill”), all played by a live band situated behind the stage out of view. The guffaw-inducing lyrics include lines like “just like clothes from WalMart, my love is falling apart” and “make like a nail and press on.” Though The Great American Trailer Park Musical doesn’t tread any new ground in satirical musical theater, it’s still a simple, fun crowd pleaser. Jessica Fromm

Coffin Job

Japanese feature ‘Departures’ brilliantly hovers between comedy and tragedy

By Richard von Busack

T

HE BEST comedies are always uncertain about what side of the line they fall on. Sometimes, a tragedy seems about to break out at any minute. Departures, the surprise best foreign film winner at this year’s Oscars, proves that there’s just as much potential for humor in a death comedy as there is in a sex comedy. Departures begins with a kind of sketch: two men from the undertakers come to the “encoffining” of a beautiful girl. The ceremony is exquisitely solemn— corpse-arranging is yet another fine Japanese art—including cloth folding, cleaning and anointing. While sponging the body, Daigo (Masahiro Motoki), the younger of the two encoffiners, finds out that the deceased had an embarrassing secret, a debacle that he handles quickly. He wasn’t always that cool. In flashback, we learn that Daigo played the cello in a Tokyo orchestra. We see its performance of Beethoven’s Ninth, performed for about a dozen grim-faced music fans. Laid off afterward, Daigo is in serious debt, since his expensive new cello set him back some $186,000. Without a better idea, Daigo decides to leave Tokyo to reclaim his family home in the country in Yamagata Prefecture. Daigo’s adoring wife, Mika (Ryoko Hirosue), agrees to

the plan, seemingly without doubts. Looking for a job, Daigo finds a newspaper ad for work helping out “Departures.” Sasaki (Tsutomu Yamazaki), the boss, looks Daigo up and down. “You’re not depressing,” he judges and tosses Daigo’s résumé on the floor without reading it. He hires Daigo right on the spot. It turns out that the ad was a misprint. Daigo will be working not with departures but with the departed. This business sells and fills coffins. Though old Sasaki claims that fate sent the young man there, Daigo can’t accept it. He hides his new job from his wife; when Mika finds out, she regards her husband as an untouchable and leaves him. What follows are slices of life in the death trade. Daigo becomes aware that what had seemed like a job was actually a vocation. He’s very good at handling the formalities, and the harsh situations: untimely deaths, suicides by charcoal inhalation or the aftermath of a motorcycle crash. The long winters in Yamagata set the mood of mourning. If Daigo doesn’t look depressing, he’s serious enough for the occasions, and he has his own dark issues: Daigo’s father left him and his mother when he was young. Certainly, his new boss is a fine replacement for any lost dad. Sasaki is a man among men. Yamazaki, never to be forgotten as the John

Wayne–like trucker in the 1985 Tampopo, is an actor of absolute gravity and unreal smoothness, and he gives a top movie-star’s performance in this role. Yamazaki’s suaveness just gets richer as the film goes along. To watch Sasaki at work is to sort of wish you were dead already. He has the aspect of a magician, explaining the steps to the mourners: “I will now affix the lid. . . .” Likewise, he also resembles an alchemist: transforming a distinctly green corpse into the likeness of a sleeping, peaceful wife. (The deeply touching incident has a sharp punch line; part of Sasaki’s reward for a job well done is some cold teriyaki: dead meat.) In the presence of death, the old man has a hearty appetite; he hosts a Christmas party, which turns into the drollest chicken-eating scene since Tom Jones. “I’m such a good cook,” he rumbles, “that I hate himself.” Yamagata Prefecture supposedly has a reputation as a region of bumpkins. It’s easy on the eyes; the snow-covered volcanic cones and the wetlands remind one of Washington State. Maybe the earthiness of the people is a regional-comedy touch in all the characters, from the farmerlike, tranquil Sasaki to his salty, forward secretary (Kimiko Yo, a pleasure to watch). The laughter and family fights

that break out at funerals might be part of this movie’s rural, workingclass eye. Departures is backward looking; it favors farmland and oldfashioned wood-fired bathhouses over the Tokyo mania. It celebrates old-style, hands-on craft. Director Yojiro Takita has impeccable timing and a constant bubbliness. He expertly mixes what seems like unmixable material. In one moment, clouds of swans fly as Daigo practices his cello in the countryside; in an earlier scene, Daigo emits a Jimmy Stewart–style gobble of panic after Sasaki casts him as a model corpse for a training film. (Daigo is sort of a fussbudget; caught by his wife after having hidden the purchase of the cello, he dithers his hands—the cartoon gesture of a husband found out in a lie.) Departures goes long. One perfect scene—a crematorium operator’s tale of a Christmas Eve he spent once—goes on to explain itself and spoils the mood. The reconciliation of Daigo to his father’s memory stalls, even after it’s clearly inevitable. Still: Departures is a movie about death that’s suffused with the joy of living. DEPARTURES (PG-13; 130 min.), directed by Yojiro Takita, written by Kundo Koyama, photographed by Takeshi Hamada and starring Masahiro Motoki and Tsutomu Yamazaki, opens June 5 at Camera 3 in San Jose.

Sam Raimi returns to ‘Evil Dead’ form in smart, spooky ‘Drag Me to Hell’

S

OME Strunk and White rule of show business should insist that the word “Hell” in a movie title must carry an exclamation point. Otherwise, Drag Me to Hell misses no tricks, proving that a movie can be both spine-tingling and droll. Alison Lohman makes a spirited scream queen under Sam Raimi’s endlessly witty direction. Raimi (of the SpiderMan trilogy and, more relevantly, The Evil Dead series) illuminates the girl’s backstory with a few well-chosen images. And he plays the class card as if this were a game of slapjack. Seeing bankers get what’s coming to them—even a banker one likes—shows some serious zeitgeist. Drag Me To Hell is a startler, and yet one doesn’t get irritated by the jumpups. They pay off and are as well planned as anything else in the film. So much in Drag Me to Hell depends on atmospherics, makeup and orchestral music. Christopher Young’s inspired, crescendo-heavy soundtrack gets you juiced, with its shredded-violin references to Saint-Saëns’ Dance Macabre. And here are visual effects that haven’t changed since Murnau: the scuttling dead leaves that chase a fleeing figure; the clutching shadow hand that sneaks under a doorway and falls palm first on a lovely and sad female face. Lohman’s Christine puts up a vigorous defense against the Unknown, though, dropping a damn anvil on its head at one point. Under the stress, Christine reverts from dutiful loan arranger to the tougher girl she once was. Lohman has one moment of insane hysterical laughter, proving well how an actor’s freshness can bring the unexpected even unto a well-storyboarded action scene. After a nightmare-tormented evening (bug vomit; dead, toothless Gypsy French kiss), Christine is late for work. The obsequious buttkisser (Reggie Lee, hilarious) next desk over comments about it. She snarls back, “What are ya, the hall monitor?” In our cinema, too many spookhouses charge social property tax. Since The Exorcist, when the hellmouth speaks, it usually says, “This Sunday, go to the church of your choice.” Piety is not in Drag Me to Hell’s equation; there are no priests to slow this story down. Christine’s fellow hellfighter is a good-looking swami (Dileep Rao), who is conversant with Jung as well as more arcane books. We know what Christine’s major malfunction is from the wonderful previews: trying to toughen up as a loan officer, she turned down an extension on an old Gypsy’s mortgage. Perhaps not PC. As racial slurs go, having the world tremble with fear about your curses is low impact. Protesting against such hooey would be like Joey Skaggs’ famous prank of holding press conferences urging legislatures to “rename the Gypsy Moth—we Gypsies have suffered enough.” In any case, Lorna Raver’s performance as the accursing crone Mrs. Ganush shows instances of Lugosian anguish. And Justin Long edges his way out of light comedy here; he’s very gentle as the boyfriend who can only watch helplessly as an evil spirit gives Christine 72 hours’ notice. Did I mention Mrs. Ganush’s explanation of her cataracted gaze: “The sickness took my eye”? The police doctor muttering offstage, “An obvious case of posttraumatic-stress disorder”?

A Seattle reporter (Naomi Watts) investigates and finds that the tape leads to a deserted thoroughbred horse farm. Unfortunately, Verbinski has a pendantically logical mind, and he could have shaved a half-hour by leaving out some of the perfectly rational explanations for what goes on. Watts displays all the fascinating self-possession of Nicole Kidman but with a lot more nuance. (Plays Jun 5 at midnight at Camera 7 in Campbell and Jun 6 at midnight at Camera 12 in San Jose.)

FILM REVIEW IZgZhV>hVh^

man down. John Wayne has his last great role as Rooster Cogburn—an Arkansas marshal whose one good eye widens in the presence of a jug or a bribe; the figure is closer to W.C. Fields than the heroes he played in his youth. Wayne’s speech about how he drifted away from his honest life in Cairo, Ill., is a great moment of acting, not just by Wayne’s lights but by anybody’s. While director Henry Hathaway sensibly went for the aura of golden sunset in this outstanding Western, the much swampier book itself is worth another look. It’s written by Charles Portis, an associate of Tom Wolfe’s and, as Portis once said, “holder of Karl Marx’s former job” as London correspondent of the New York Herald Tribune. The Coens are bidding to remake it, in hopes of taking as much fun out of it as possible. BILLED WITH The Shootist. A movie honored as the last of Wayne—here, a dying gunman in turn of the last-century Carson City. And it’s not much more than a curtain call, despite the star and character-actor-packed cast, Lauren Bacall and Jimmy Stewart among them. (Plays Jun 5 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB)

ITH David Sedaris as 10 on the Greek-humor scale (“The Greeks invented democracy and then called it a day”), My Life in Ruins, the comeback vehicle for Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) is about a 2. The witty Mike Reiss of The Simpsons and Queer Duck scripted, but the underpowered direction by comedic workhorse (or plowhorse) Donald Petrie never gets the fun started. Vardalos plays Georgia, an Athensbased tour guide who has a degree in history. She has to settle for hauling a group of passengers around the ancient ruins of Greece. Said tourists are all of a kind: dumb Americans, horny divorcees, frosty Brits, tottering old people. Her latest passenger load is no exception. Harland Williams and Rachel “Debbie Downer” Dratch play the ugly Americans who can’t figure out why the Venus de Milo doesn’t have any arms. Ian Oglivy is the crusty Englishman, and Caroline Goodall is his even chillier wife. While riding herd on this pack of ice-cream-seeking tourists, Georgia somehow doesn’t notice the attentions of her studly but hairy driver, Procopi “Poupi” Kakas (Alexis Georgoulis). Poupi Kakas: these are the jokes, fokes. Unofficial ring leader of the tour is salty alter kocker Richard Dreyfuss (“I take preparation H, because I’m an asshole”); his constant joshing hides a broken heart. The makers are probably hoping for a girls’-night-out audience that wants to recapture the thrill of watching Mamma Mia!, with the Greek locations and piles of historic rocks on display. Unfortunately, Vardalos and her charges are standing between you and them throughout the film. Vardalos is pert enough and can react well if she’s given a good setup. She’s an actress who would be good in about a 15-minute dose; unfortunately, she’s in almost every scene. The low point somehow is the tour’s visit to Delphi; Dreyfuss’ Irv hides behind the stones pretending to be the Oracle. I had a strange flash to the scene in the book Babbitt, where a group of drunk Ohio businessmen of the 1920s are trying to contact the spirit of Dante using a Ouija board and some fake Italian-waiter accents (“Say, see if you can get old Dant’ to spiel us some of his poetry . . .”) It’s Irv himself who shows the desperation and lack of real feeling in this movie. The old man’s see-Greece-and-die experience is waffled over by nervous filmmakers who couldn’t figure out whether Irv should take the final bow or not—whether he should pine nobly for his late wife or do a little product placement for Viagra, actually naming Pfizer as its manufacturer. The coyness level of My Life in Ruins is nothing like late-period Doris Day. But you despair for a film that says there’s no middle ground between stuffing the passengers with a bunch of boring historical dates and utterly vulgarizing everything that happened in history or culture. You would learn about as much about ancient Athens from watching this as you would learn about navigation from watching The Love Boat. Richard von Busack

Fatal Attraction Thrash-metal champs Death Angel plan to mix it up and get sideways at VooDoo Lounge gig By Gary Singh

I

FLAME GAME Efbui!BohfmÖt!ofx! bmcvn!dpwfs!pggfst! b!hmjnqtf!pg!uif! bqpdbmzqtf!po!upvs/

T SEEMS like every time Death Angel descends upon San Jose, the band is preparing for another overseas tour. In November 2006, Death Angel sold out the Blank Club before heading off to Japan. The following spring, it flattened the place again and then subsequently split for open-air festivals in the Philippines and Europe. This time around, the group’s appearance at the VooDoo Lounge precedes yet another European jaunt, where it will promote a brand-new DVD/CD package, Sonic German Beatdown. Death Angel originally emerged from the ’80s Bay Area thrash scene—the same toxic stew that spawned Exodus, Testament, Possessed and, well, you know who else—but disbanded in 1990 after a horrific bus accident. We would not see any other material until 2004’s comeback CD, The Art of Dying, and its follow-up, last year’s Killing Season. Now the band can claim its firstever live video. Since Death Angel feels comfortable performing both in small clubs and open-air festivals, two different gigs appear on the DVD: one from the 2007 Rock

Hard Festival in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, and the other from a 2008 club gig in Adelsheim. Each show features a different setlist, and the package also includes an audio CD of the entire 2007 show. “It’s really raw and practically unedited,” explains guitarist Rob Cavestany over the phone. “We wanted to give the fans the real deal—how you see us live. In the shows, you’ll see where we get on the edge of losing it—stuff ’s going wacky—but the way that it rides through in a live situation with the intensity of everything happening live. That’s just how we wanted it to be. We didn’t want to doctor it all up.” And doctor it up they did not. Sonic German Beatdown is in no way a multizillion-dollar production— it’s pretty uncooked, and you get a fly-on-the-wall perspective of those two shows. You get newer material from their two recent albums plus a healthy dose of tracks from the “old days,” meaning, cough, the late ’80s. While purists continue to crave nothing but old-school thrash, Death Angel thrives on variety. They like to mix up the riffs and get sideways. They have no

problem playing the older, more brutal material right alongside their recent work, which seems more like straight-up early Maideninfluenced metal rather than speedy, murderous, violent thrash. Not that there’s anything wrong with such material—it’s just that diversity is what matters. “We mix up our set depending on where we’re playing,” Cavestany says. “It keeps it interesting. It keeps you on your toes and keeps you thinking. If you keep doing the same thing, it gets kind of robotic after a while.” This week at VooDoo Lounge, fans can see Death Angel up close. They’ll be playing older songs that they haven’t played live since the ’80s—tunes fans have been requesting. Cavestany emphasizes that variety must take priority, no matter what. Huge crowds, small clubs, old songs, new songs— everything’s fair game. Whether it’s walking onstage to a huge ocean of fans in Europe or a small venue like VooDoo Lounge, the band digs it. “What it depends on, is the crowd itself,” he said. “And if the equipment is behaving properly, the vibe of the venue, the promoters and all that.

It could be the smallest club and just be one of the greatest, most fun shows. It’s just a lot more old-school in a small clubs. People get up right in your face, and if the situation’s right—if the security’s flowing with the people and everybody’s stage diving and crowd surfing—it just gets really, really wild in a compressed, intense way. It always reminds me of the old days, and we like getting in peoples’ faces and interacting with the crowd like that.” Despite heralded comebacks, stadium shows and even a new DVD, things have not been entirely smooth for the Death Angel family as of late. Bassist Dennis Pepa departed the band last year, and original drummer Andy Galeon bailed just recently. Both appear in the video, but they will not be at the San Jose gig. Sammy Diosdado has replaced Pepa on bass, while Bay Area mainstay Will Carroll is filling in on the skins. DEATH ANGEL plays Friday (June 5) at 8pm with TAUNTED, MUDFACE, BOMB & SCARY and PSYCHMATIC at VooDoo Lounge, 14 S. Second St., San Jose. Tickets are $15/$20. (048.286.8636)

And don’t tell me, when you call the guy, his message says, “If I’m not here, I’m probably on the mothership . . .” Actually, he has so little respect for you that he can’t be bothered to come up with original (let alone plausible) excuses, or call you in a timely manner to deliver them. In fact, he’s got you trained to call him and wait a couple days to hear which of his two excuses it’ll be. What? Somebody died? People die every second—almost all of them strangers to a guy who isn’t exactly living out his final days at Whispering Pines nursing home. Oh, wait—was he in the hospital again? Perhaps insurance companies are finally recognizing being a complete jerk as a legitimate medical condition—or did he just sprain an ankle walking all over you? Sure, mistakes happen. Like, once. A good guy works 16 hours, lies down for a fiveminute nap and wakes up five hours after he was supposed to pick you up for your date. He’ll be mortified, call you pronto to tell you how sorry he is and clean out the corner florist to say it again. Should a date who’s a no-show fail to call right away, or claim he

was held hostage by bank robbers, the reality is almost certainly one of two things: He isn’t a good guy or he isn’t a good guy. Do feel free to believe otherwise—the moment you turn on the local news and see a familiar face bound and gagged on the floor of the bank. Since anybody with an IQ over freezing is too smart to put up with the excuses you do, it’s got to be a profound lack of self-respect that keeps you coming back for that 26th helping of crushing humiliation (or, as you prefer to call it, “out of this world sex”). Of course, you have your reasons, like how young he makes you feel—but do you really need to relive that time you waited alone in the rain when your mom forgot to pick you up from ballet? You have to be blocking out your true feelings, and reality, too, probably out of desperation to be loved—which is about the best guarantee you won’t find anything remotely resembling love. You’ll only be ready for a relationship when you can take or leave being in one. Go work on yourself until you don’t need to hear how wonderful you are from somebody else—that is, just as soon as he comes out of this week’s coma, and the waitress in the nurse outfit releases him.

This puts you in the terrible position of coming up with some conscience-searing lie; perhaps “She thought you were very attractive, with a beautiful smile and a great personality.” Should your girlfriend realize your mother

doesn’t like her, she’ll probably act weird around her, which is sure to make your mother like her even less. That’s why this situation calls not just for lies, but preventive lies—occasionally volunteering information without being pressed, like “My mom asked about you again.” No need to tell what she asked: “Why does she dress like somebody who gets paid $20 to get in a man’s car?”

ROB BREZSNY

xffl!pg!kvof!4 xxx/gsffxjmmbtuspmphz/dpn

6g^Zh(March 21–April 19): I’m betting that in a

HXdge^d(Oct. 23–Nov. 21): Attention all aspiring

IVjgjh(April 20–May 20): The oracle you’re now reading normally has a retail value of $49.95. But because of your ongoing efforts to defeat your defeatist tendencies, and because of your dogged attempts to sabotage your sabotage mechanisms, and because of your heroic stabs at defending yourself against your defense mechanisms, you have earned the right to receive this advice absolutely gratis! To generate even more free stuff in the coming week, Taurus, all you have to do is learn how to turn around so fast that you can catch a glimpse of the back of your own head, and how to pat yourself on the back with both hands while kicking your own butt.

HV\^iiVg^jh(Nov. 22–Dec. 21): Would you say

couple of months the fates will give you license to play with boisterous gambles and exhilarating risks. But at this particular moment I recommend that you confine yourself to tame gambles and sensible risks. I realize that may be a bit deflating to your rambunctious all-or-nothing spirit, but I think it’ll pay off in the long run. From what I can tell, this is an excellent time to lay the groundwork for the bigger fun ahead.

<Zb^c^(May 21–June 20): Seventeen-year-old Jay Greenberg is a music prodigy who has written numerous sonatas and symphonies. His first CD, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and Juilliard String Quartet, came out in 2006. It’s not exactly a struggle for him to create his compositions. He often completes them in less than a day. “The music comes fully written,” he says, “playing like an orchestra in my head.” I believe you now have something in common with him, Gemini. According to my reading of the omens, there will soon be ripe visions of future accomplishments floating around in your imagination. You should write them down or describe them in detail to an ally or do whatever else it takes to launch the process of getting them born. 8VcXZg(June 21–July 22): “You may want to smash a painful emotion to bits, but you can’t blow it up with a nuclear bomb,” wrote Tsoknyi Rinpoche in his book Fearless Simplicity. What makes the situation even more poignant is that the painful emotion may be based on a wrong interpretation of experience. It may also be caused by some faulty conditioning that got imprinted on your sensitive psyche when you were a toddler. Having said that, Cancerian, I’m pleased to inform you that you currently have the power to significantly dissipate the intensity of a certain painful emotion you thought you’d never shake. To initiate the process, invoke forgiveness in every way you can imagine—toward those who hurt you, those who ignored you, those who misled you, and you yourself. AZd(July 23–Aug. 22): “I can’t exactly walk on

the water,” says Russ Crim, “but it looks like I can because I know where the rocks are hiding just beneath the water.” This would be a good trick for you to emulate during the coming weeks, Leo. By doing your homework and some advance scouting, you could put yourself in a position to accomplish a splashy bit of hocus-pocus that will ultimately be legendary. To help ensure that you don’t generate a karmic backlash as you glorify your ego, I suggest you find a way to make your magic serve some worthy cause. For instance, maybe you could walk on water in order to raise money for charity.

K^g\d(Aug. 23–Sept. 22): When I was 19 years old, a so-called psychic predicted I would die when I was 24. As much as I scoffed at his careless quackery, his words subliminally worried me for years. On the day I turned 25 I celebrated extra hard. Partly because of that experience, I’ve always tried to be impeccably conscientious about how I conduct myself as a fortune-teller. I’ve vowed never to manipulate you with melodramatic prophecies that could distort your free will. So it’s with a cautious sense of responsibility that I offer the following augury: The weeks ahead could be one of the most illuminating and successful times of the last five years. A^WgV(Sept. 23–Oct. 22): I suspect that this is a turning point in your relationship with your fantasies. It’s not enough merely to keep musing about them with wistful longing. You can’t afford to continue postponing their activation until some mythical future. If you want to keep them from receding into a hazy limbo, you will need to give at least one of them a big push toward becoming a more concrete part of your life. The universe will provide ample assistance if you do give that push.

lottery winners! If you will ever in your life win more than $10 in the lottery or similar game of chance, this would probably be the time. I’m not saying you definitely will. I’m simply suggesting that your odds are better than usual—certainly better than the chances that you’ll be invited by Brad Pitt to co-star with him in a feature film about alien pirates set in 22nd-century Madagascar. On the other hand, the possibility of a dumb-luck windfall is still rather remote compared to the likelihood of other kinds of financial progress. For instance, there’s an excellent chance that you’ll stimulate the flow of good fiscal karma if you spend quality time taking inventory of your approach to money and developing a long-term master plan to promote your prosperity.

you’re closer to the “happy wanderer” model of Sagittarian, or the “eternal fugitive” type? Does your motive power usually come from the desire to head in the general direction of some attractive destination, or else to flee from every situation you’re nervous about getting hemmed in by? Are you more inclined to shoot at multiple targets, hoping that one of them may turn out to be the correct one for you to aim at? Or do you prefer to identify the best target right from the start, and only then begin shooting? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to meditate on these core Sagittarian issues.

8Veg^Xdgc(Dec. 22–Jan. 19): In astrology, the word

“quincunx” refers to a relationship characterized by creative tension. Two planets that are in quincunx are like two people who have a certain odd affinity for each other but don’t speak the same language. Imagine an Italian woman and an American man meeting at a party and experiencing an immediate chemistry, even though each can barely understand what the other is saying. I bring this up, Capricorn, because these days you’re in a quincunx dynamic with pretty much the whole world. To keep frustration to a minimum and enhance the excitement quotient, you should try to crack some of the foreign codes you’re surrounded by.

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

Buckminster Fuller said that although we are all born geniuses, the process of living tends to de-genius us. That’s the bad news. The good news is that 2009 is one of the best years ever for you to re-genius yourself, and the month of June is among the best times in 2009. So how should you go about the glorious task of tapping in to the totality of your original brilliance? Here’s one tip. Do what Einstein said: “All I want to do is learn the way God thinks. All the rest is details.”

E^hXZh(Feb. 19–March 20): “Dear Rob: I’ve recently

developed a propensity to talk to myself. This is pretty weird. All these years, I’ve barely uttered a few words to myself on special occasions. Now I’m having long, convoluted gab fests, as if the little voices in my head had busted out of their holding cells, run amuck, and decided to NEVER SHUT UP! Am I crazy?” —Out Loud Pisces Dear Out Loud: It’s a good sign that you’re getting all the murmuring background noise out in the open. Not just for you but for many Pisceans, thoughts and feelings that had been hidden or secret are becoming available to your conscious mind. Once you clear out the backlog, the really useful revelations will begin.

Will this silly story never die? I’ve mentioned previously that NASA didn’t invent Teflon, Velcro or Tang; we therefore deduce that it can’t be making money on the patents. This evidently made no impression the first time, so let’s go over it again: • Teflon was invented by Roy J. Plunkett in 1938 while he was experimenting with refrigerants at DuPont Labs. His patent was granted in 1941. • Velcro was invented by Swiss electrical engineer Georges de Mestral, who said he got the idea from burrs he picked up on a hike. He obtained a patent on his hookand-loop fabric fastener in 1955. • Tang was invented in 1957 by General Foods researcher William A. Mitchell. Tang did go into orbit with John Glenn in 1962, and NASA’s use of all three items heightened their profile. Had NASA been a little more hip to the product-placement possibilities, I suppose it might have extracted fees from the lucky vendors, or at least gotten a break on price. However, I find no evidence it got either. On the larger question, a look at NASA’s 2008 balance sheet shows it sure isn’t making money as that notion is ordinarily understood: I’m seeing $1 billion in earned revenue vs. $19 billion in gross operating costs, with the difference mostly coming out of our collective wallet. A few government agencies arguably do turn a profit, but only if you take the narrow view that profit equals excess of receipts over expenditures for some small subset of government operations. Needless to say, the government as a whole is so far in the red that it’s starting to interfere with microwave transmissions. Such quibbles aside, agencies that can be said to be making a buck include: Bureau of Engraving and Printing. You’d think the surest way to make money would be to literally manufacture it. Maybe not. For fiscal 2007, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, which prints paper currency, netted $46 million, but it lost $17 million in 2008. U.S. Mint. The mint is a more dependable moneymaker, netting more than $1 billion in

2007 and $800 million in 2008. Why does it do so much better than the BEP? Because the BEP is essentially a printer, selling paper currency to the Federal Reserve at cost. By tradition, however, the mint sells its coins at face value. The difference between that and the cost of production is called seigniorage— profit to you and me. Bureau of Land Management. The BLM, which oversees the rape—sorry, the development of resources on 13 percent of the total U.S. land area, regularly sells off leases for oil and gas drilling, coal mining, grazing, and so on. In 2005, revenue from mineral leases alone generated more than $3.4 billion. Cost to run the bureau that year: $837 million. Federal Communications Commission. The FCC occasionally sells off public assets at a profit—like in March 2008, when it auctioned off the soon-to-be-abandoned 700 MHz analog television band, which garnered $19.6 billion. FCC budget for 2008: $313 million. Internal Revenue Service. According to the General Accounting Office, in fiscal 2008 the IRS had a budget of $11.2 billion but squeezed tax cheats for $56.4 billion. Tennessee Valley Authority, etc. Fact is, if you go through the Treasury Department’s monthly statements—a process that’s every bit as fascinating as it sounds—you find a number of agencies either turning a profit or pulling in significant cash. The TVA, for example, cleared $817 million in 2008, mostly from selling electricity. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission covers 90 percent of its budget from user fees. They’re the exception, though. The bulk of the government operates at a dead loss, and all we get out of it is prosperity (usually), the freedom to watch Dancing With the Stars, and peace—if not everywhere, at least here.
