Strawberry Jam

Competing festivals in Watsonville make a mess 0G83AA71/:CAA3<6=>

A

S Watsonville prepares for not one but two strawberry festivals after a bizarre falling out between city officials and Modesto-based festival promoter Leslie Peterson, residents, nonprofits and local businesses are left puzzling out the aftermath. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to jump in and take sides,â&#x20AC;? says Cal Giant marketing director Cindy Jewel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would prefer that everyone get along and work together to stay focused on helping the nonprofits and local community and tourism. That should be the bottom line.â&#x20AC;? Jerry Beyersdorff, executive director of the Pajaro Valley Chamber of Commerce, expresses similar dismay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really disappointed that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come down to two festivals,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And evidently to compete with one another. It seems a shame to me.â&#x20AC;? After the Watsonville City Council voted last week 6-1 to hold its own strawberry festival downtown after firing Peterson for breach of contract, the promoter made it clear he would also move forward with his festival, tentatively called the Monterey Bay Berry Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no choice, I have to do the event. I

have all my money invested,â&#x20AC;? he says. Both festivals will be held on the same dates, Aug. 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2, with the Berry Festival at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds and a city festival called the Watsonville Strawberry Festival at Monterey Bay held downtown. Peterson has been accused of sneakily moving the festival from Ramsay Park, in the heart of Watsonville, to the fairgrounds, just on the city outskirts, a move that deprived the city of $10,000 in park usage fees. Though City Manager Carlos Palacios says this is a straightforward case of contract violation, Peterson charges that city staffers have had it out for him since he challenged their right to move the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watsonvilleâ&#x20AC;? to the fore of the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monterey Bay Strawberry Festival at Watsonvilleâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;the festival name for 14 years. The council approved the name change on Oct. 28. Some, like Councilmember Manuel Bersamin, view the matter more as an issue of civic pride than contractual obligation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more worried about giving my young people a festival they can grow into and will someday be as well-known as [Gilroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Castrovilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s],â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This individual has taken this opportunity from us.â&#x20AC;?

When Bersamin heard that Malo, a Chicano band popular in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s, had been booked at the fairgrounds, he went a step further. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can hurt his profit, maybe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wrote [Malo] a letter asking them not to come. I hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We had no idea that the promoter had done this to the Latino community, and we as a band, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to look at that contract again.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Peterson says he was shocked by the letter and said that Malo, who have worked with him for two years, assured him theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still play the festival. Though no one is suing anyone else at this point, the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;lawsuitâ&#x20AC;? seems to dangle threateningly in the air. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At some point I have to defend myself,â&#x20AC;? says Peterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if Malo had canceled?â&#x20AC;? Separate is not necessarily equal, and this case is no exception. Peterson has bigname acts Malo with Jorge Santana, Sapo with Richard Bean and El Chicano booked for the grandstand. And though the city once believed it had secured the same carnival company Peterson was using, it ultimately defected to the fairgrounds, and Palacios says the downtown fair will feature smaller childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and toddlersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; carnival rides. On the other hand, many residents may find it preferable to casually stroll to the downtown fair, where admission will be free. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city wants to do a family-oriented festival,â&#x20AC;? Palacios says. The city expects to spend some $80,000 putting the festival on and hopes to break even. As it puts together its application materials and secures what it says are about 100 interested vendors, some organizations that want to work in the festival are finding themselves in an awkward position. Ron Sandidge, assistant principal at Pajaro Valley High School, says their sports teams are already locked into working at Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival, where they earn money for working things like the parking lot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone had called a month ago and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two functions, are you interested?,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; we might have been in a position to talk,â&#x20AC;? he says. Rosa Mendoza, director of the Pajaro Valley Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center, says she would rather participate in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other one is not a Watsonville resident. If we want to invest or do anything, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go where revenue stays here,â&#x20AC;? she says. And still others are choosing to stay the hell out of it, like Tom Simmons, the general manager at the Watsonville Berry Co-op. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We normally would support monetarily and with donations, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get involved until they get it all straightened out,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The split] impacts the community. For the industry, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of an embarrassment.â&#x20AC;? 0

written specifically for the southern subdistrict, a forest management region that includes the Santa Cruz Mountains. Forest ecosystems, explains Dias, differ from region to region and should therefore be managed on a regional basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see a specific rule set developed which recognizes that [Big Creek Lumber] already protects salmonids,â&#x20AC;? Dias says. But Big Creek Lumberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set of stream temperature data was not peerreviewed after it was collected. Moreover, Big Creek Lumber never submitted its conclusions for review by the team of scientists that analyzed more than 4,000 pages of scientific documents during the writing of the proposed package of forestry rules. Instead, Big Creek Lumber simply submitted its numbers and graphs into the pile of comments to be reviewed directly by the Board of Forestry after the public comment period ends on June 22. Sustainability consultant Mike Liquori helped to lead the scientific literature review process before he and 12 others produced a 200-page synopsis for the Board of Forestryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoyment. Liquori never saw Big

Creek Lumberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data, but he speculates that it did not meet certain standard criteria required of such material. Peer review is a big one, and the fact that Big Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data received no such scrutiny substantially diminishes its credibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big difference between rigorously collected data and sloppily collected data,â&#x20AC;? notes Liquori. Jodi Friediani, a Santa Cruz forestry consultant and environmentalist who has submitted her own opinions during the Board of Forestryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 45-day comment period, believes Big Creek Lumber must be subjected to the rules in the proposed set of regulations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a species thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the verge of going extinct, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my opinion that you want to take all precautions possible.â&#x20AC;?

regulations is a public process, but Friediani charges that Big Creek Lumber has edged out of public view in recent negotiations with the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawmakers. This spring, Big Creek hosted several officials with the Department of Fish and Game on a tour of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land holdings in the upper San Lorenzo Creek drainage, and Friediani wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited. When she expressed interest in seeing the watershed, the loggers told her to stay home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of field trip in a process thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been open and transparent for two years should have been open to the public,â&#x20AC;? says Friediani. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My concern is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take people of importance out to the sites that look good and keep them away from the sites that look bad.â&#x20AC;? After the public meeting in Sacramento on June 24, the Board of Forestry will decide how to implement the proposed regulations. If the Board gives consideration to the logging industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;such as Big Creek Lumberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for a separate set of forestry rules in the southern subdistrictâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; the process might not be wrapped up until September. The new rules will take effect Jan. 1, 2010. 0

:3/>=44/7B6 Virgil Robinson, Possibility Advocate, with Jamie Ellison, a personal trainer whose business he helped launch.

Man With a Plan Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy being a positive guy in a negative world, but Virgil Robinson is making a business out of trying 0G83AA71/:CAA3<6=>

V

IRGIL Robinson, a sporty, boyish-looking 42-year-old in matching â&#x20AC;&#x153;Possibility Advocateâ&#x20AC;? cap and T-shirt, sits across from Hannah*, a recent divorcee who has been slowly losing control of her mortgage. Months ago, when the two first met, Robinson pledged that the Possibility Advocate Society would raise enough money at its record-breaking Afro wig photo shoot to pay one installment of Hannahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mortgage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m committed,â&#x20AC;? he tells her across a table at Lulu Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in downtown Santa Cruz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten you.â&#x20AC;? Hannah, whose expression is mostly hidden behind large, dark sunglasses, is shy about her situation and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want her kids knowing. But she assures him

that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already done a lot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m grateful for whatever,â&#x20AC;? she says. Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to be helpful is unpredictable in its ebullience and variety. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped draft the business plan that kept the Surfing Museum open, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped organize a gaming expo to fundraise for the Teen Center, and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hannahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mortgage. On the way to Luluâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, he picked up a hitchhiker. About a year ago, Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help cost thousands of dollars. As a recruiter, he was making six figures helping wealthy job seekers land plum positions. Then last summer, after a session with a fearful client who could only play devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advocate to every suggestion, Robinson felt himself floundering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of pure frustration I created a Possibility Advocate T-shirt as a reminder to myself

to find ways to succeed,â&#x20AC;? he says. When he donned his new shirt, Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife of 20 years told him he looked ridiculous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at her and I was crushed,â&#x20AC;? he says. But as they strolled down Pacific, he was stopped at least five times by people asking about his shirt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized people were into the idea of encouraging bold action. That grew into me wanting to host photo shoots, where members would do something fun and silly,â&#x20AC;? he says. These days, Robinson says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of recruiting entirely and spending all his time working on Possibility Advocate. His goals are roughly threefold. First, to encourage others, no matter what. Second, to put on large photo shoots as an exercise in â&#x20AC;&#x153;laughing at oneself,â&#x20AC;? like the Afro wig shoot in March or the upcoming bikini/Speedo/air mattress/ kitchen sink photo shoot, records that Robinson elected to break pretty much at random. And third, to disprove the idea that one canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make money by doing something altruistic. The society is purposely not a nonprofit, Robinson hopes someday to make a living off his social networking site, which currently has 206 members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just because you make a profit doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not moral,â&#x20AC;? he says. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that the idea has been a runaway success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sent out invitations to 3,000 clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my Rolodex. Not

a single one is a member of my site,â&#x20AC;? he says, momentarily glum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty more were sent to my friends and family; only five joined.â&#x20AC;? There have been other little failures: the signs for the mortgage fundraiser never made it to the Afro wig event, and though 168 wig-wearers showed up to break the records, the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take fell about $1,800 short of what Hannah needed. When Robinson took the few hundred dollars they had raised and reinvested it in a line of postcards he marketed around Santa Cruz, he received no interest. And herein lies the paradox about Robinson: heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as worried about success as anyone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a constant challenge everyday to stay positive and stay motivated,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day I have another member join the site it affirms what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing. Like this kid Chad, he says to me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;? He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m homeless, but I want to help.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;? Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice catches suddenly and his eyes tear up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know where he is at with his life. Being raised by a single mother with seven brothers and sisters, eating out of garbage cans, I used to sit around and wish some sage would come and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dude, you got skills, you got talent.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That never happened.â&#x20AC;? Robinson is pushing forward with Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bikini and Speedo photoshoot, a record set in 2008 by a group of 1,010 Australian models. He says this time he has a new charitable conceptâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Passion Awardâ&#x20AC;? that will be a sum of money collected from donations and sales of Possibility Advocate gear. Donors will have their names placed in a hat and the winner will be drawn at random, with the hope that the winnings will be spent on a dream or idea. Robinson says 70 percent of the pot goes to the winner; hopefully the rest will be enough to help Hannah. And as for whether or not he thinks he can get over 1,010 people to break the Australian world record? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I know: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to show up. My daughters, my wife and my brother are going to show up. Other than that I have no idea,â&#x20AC;? he says.

THE WORLD RECORD BIKINI, SPEEDO, LIFEGUARD, WATER POLO AND FLOATING AIR BED PHOTO SHOOT is Saturday, June 20, at 10am at Cowells Beach, Santa Cruz; www.possibilityadvocate.ning.com.

N LATE MAY, a small grassroots organization called Transition Santa Cruz convened for an evening meeting at the police station on Center Street. The subject of the hour was how the community could bolster Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public transportation system and steer residents away from sprawl and dependency on cars for every

outing and errand. Led in part by Micah Posner, director of the cycling advocacy group People Power, the discussion quickly veered into a debate over whether or not high-density housing would facilitate a public rail system or do the opposite and lead to more cars on the streets.

One woman, who identified herself as a 30-year resident of the Westside, stood to say that dense residential infrastructure will likely lead to more traffic and congestion, and she scorned the 20-acre Delaware mixeduse development as a disaster in local neighborhood planning. Posner countered that residents of densely populated neighborhoods tend to demand public rail transport, which in turn facilitates the growth of adjacent high-density housing, a virtuous cycle that eases urban sprawl and the need for people to drive cars at all.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to grow food. We also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to make basic things like structures and buildings. Even simple tasks like repairing clothesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even bother anymore.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Michael Levy But architect Mark Primack, who led the planning of the Delaware project, said city policies are partly to blame for traffic; Santa Cruz, he noted, pointedly favors building proposals that promise to include parking infrastructure in the blueprintsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a recipe for cars and congestion that must change. All of this, however, seemed far beside the point to Julie Voudreau, who stood after an hour of debate to remind the

70 attendees just why they had gathered on this Thursday evening. Voudreau, a member of Transition Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steering committee, said that drastic change is coming whether we want it or not, that there is no point in discussing whether or not we should be driving, and soon, in fact, the luxury to make such choices will not even exist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to talk about peak oil.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peak oilâ&#x20AC;? is a familiar catch phrase, though the gravity of its truest meaning still eludes much of the populace. In theory it represents the end of modern society as we know it, a scenario in which global oil production has peaked and every barrel of crude oil drawn from the earth is more difficult to extract than the one before it. According to this theory, the time is approaching when the effort and cost of oil extraction will no longer be worth the oil itself, leaving humanity without the fuel to power our transportation, factories and farmsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and disrupting the very essence of our oildependent lives. But Transition Santa Cruz and its several hundred members firmly believe that, although dramatic change may be in the works, we can prepare for it if we reorganize the way we live. The organization was born last summer as just one localized faction of the worldwide Transition movement, which first began in 2007 in Totnes, England. It was there that one Rob Hopkins recognized that the modern world will not be able to continue on its current trajectory when fast, easy access to oil peaks and begins to dwindleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or when global warming and economic meltdown, the other two drivers of the Transition movement, become inescapable realities. But in an ideal Transition town, society would be ready for such changes. With limited gas-powered transport or oil-based products, a Transition communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people would live within cycling distance of one another in a township built upon complete selfsufficiency, with extremely localized infrastructure for agriculture, clothes making, metalworking and other basics of life that humanity largely abandoned to the factories in the late 1800s, when oil power turned life into a sort of leisurely vacation from reality. Now, Transitionists say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get back to work, and in Santa Cruz Michael Levy, a private music teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;turnedactivist, is helping to lead the charge. He helped launch Transition Santa Cruz in July 2008, when oil prices in the United ¨

States soared to record highs. Levy even wonders if global peak oil occurred last summer, and with the financial upheaval that occurred so shortly thereafter, he is certain that something is seriously amiss in the world. A financial system based upon debt and an economy based upon a dwindling fuel source are fated to fail, Levy saysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and possibly soon. He and the handful of others on Transition Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steering committee would like to see Santa Cruzans pull together, relocalize production of food and goods, build resilience into the community and hit the ground running when the oil crash arrives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to plant the seeds for an alternative system of living, because the current system is in trouble,â&#x20AC;? Levy says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to become more self-reliant and be able to handle big changes like peak oil and climate change.â&#x20AC;?

Eat Local First Fully localized food production is among the top priorities of Transitionists worldwide. Currently, the average parcel of food travels a great

distance before landing on our dinner tables; the commonly cited estimate is 1,500 miles, though some experts assure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much greater. Such external dependence will no longer be feasible after peak oil, and communities must be capable of producing all their own goods in local fields, orchards and gardens. In and around Totnes, for example, community nut trees have been planted as a sure source of calories in an uncertain future. In Santa Cruz, Levy says, locals could live well on food from local farms and from backyard and community gardens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within the city limits, the potential for growing vegetables is huge, and we could probably get all our food from Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey counties,â&#x20AC;? he says. Rebecca Thistlethwaite, too, sees opportunity in local agriculture. Thistlethwaite raises pigs and chickens at T.L.C. Ranch in Watsonville and is a volunteer consultant to the Transition Santa Cruz Food Working Group. She knows the capacity of the surrounding regions to produce food but says ¨

Thistlethwaite, for example, must send her pigs to sites in Glenn and San Luis Obispo counties for slaughter and butchering because lawmakers have never allowed such facilities in the tricounty area. This uncoordinated infrastructure makes each T.L.C. Ranch pork loin, which Thistlethwaite sells at local farmers markets, a 300-mile piece of meat rather than the 20-mile piece it could be. The local Transition movement aims to smooth out such bureaucratic potholes.

Even simple tasks like repairing clothesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even bother anymore. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become a throw-away society.â&#x20AC;? In a viable Transition Town, resourcefulness and thrift would prevail as citizens learned to produce their own goods, tools and other products that societies today often import from halfway around the globe. With machines and factories no longer readily available, almost all citizens would need to participate to some level in such production. To address this, Transition founder Hopkins detailed a 12-part process in The Transition Handbook, which has sold more than 10,000 copies nationwide. In its pages he describes, among other essentials, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great Reskilling,â&#x20AC;? an effort in which communities must retrain men and women in such trades and crafts as saving seeds and growing foods, pickling vegetables, building simple structures, installing rain catchment systems, building composting toilets and many other fundamental life skills of which most dwellers in the modern era know nothing. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so long ago that this was just ordinary life. In the 1850s, societies functioned largely as local entities, without deep reliance on global economies. Many, if not most, Americans lived on or near farms. They knew how to work with their hands and feed themselves. This was true well into the 20th centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and our elders can remember that era. In fact, The Transition Handbook includes a chapter titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honoring the Elders,â&#x20AC;? in which Transitionists are advised to gather information and anecdotes from oldtimers about life before everything was mechanized, prepackaged and seemingly effortless.

Life Out of Balance â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otherwise weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always be dependent on faraway places for food, especially protein sources,â&#x20AC;? says Thistlethwaite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have almost no protein sources in the county.â&#x20AC;? Other things must happen for a Transition Town to cushion itself against the drastic changes predicted in a post-

A smattering of theorists believe the days of oil will never really end, that petroleum is a renewable resource produced by â&#x20AC;&#x153;abioticâ&#x20AC;? forces inside the earth at a rate sufficient to match current human use. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the minority. That theory lacks substantial support from energy scientists and geologists. ¨

1=D3 @ j 3 < 2  = 4  B6 3  E= @ : 2 Among those who believe oil is peaking and that humanity is looking at tough times ahead is David Fridley, staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and a regular speaker at Transition Santa Cruz meetings. Fridley believes the effects that peak oil will have on the world are going to be unpleasant for many people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are a typical American and have expectations of increasing income, cheap food, discretionary spending, leisure time and vacations in Hawaii, then the change we expect soon could be what you would consider â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;doom,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; because your life is going to fall apart.â&#x20AC;? Fridley, a firm believer in Transition, adds that too many Americans believe in solutions to all problems. Peak oil, however, is a terrible anomaly among crises, he explains, because there is no solution other than to face reality and prepare for a dramatic change of lifestyle. Fridley does not believe in abiotic oil. Nor does he see much hope in solar, wind, water and other renewable energy sources. Even nuclear power only creates electricity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing that can replace oil and allow us to maintain life at the pace weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been living,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crude oil is hundreds of millions of years of stored sunlight, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it all up in a few generations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like living off of a savings account, whereas solar energy is like working and living off your daily wages.â&#x20AC;? The sheer cost-efficiency of oil eclipses all purported alternatives. Removed from the ground and burned, oil makes things move almost miraculously. A tank of gasoline in a sedan holds enough energy to equal approximately five years of one personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rigorous manual laborâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an almost mind-boggling analogy that illustrates the impossibility of replacing oil power with manual force. Historically, too, oil has been very easy to get since the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first well was drilled in Pennsylvania in 1859; for each barrelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of energy invested in the process of accessing crude oil, 30 barrels are produced, says Fridley. By contrast, ethanol is a paltry substitute; each barrelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of oil invested in ethanol production produces a mere 1.2 barrels of raw product. Other renewables offer similarly poor returns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thermodynamics just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add up,â&#x20AC;? Fridley says. Put another way, societies of the preoil age worked their butts off. Roughly 90 percent of the population toiled in jobs that produced our energy, like coal, food and water, while just 10 percent of the populace reaped the rewards

through jobs in politics, the arts, begging and prostitution, to name several fields. Today, by contrast, just 5 percent of Americans work jobs that relate to producing food and energy, while 95 percent reap the rewards, working at abstract tasks in offices. To be suddenly denied machine labor in a nation like oursâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which has been built upon oil-age expectationsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this top-heavy employment imbalance can only do one thing, peak oil folks say: capsize. Fridley, in fact, is already preparing personally for the food shortages that can be expected in the near future. Three years ago he purchased 2 1/2 acres of land in rural Sonoma County. He planted drought-resistant blue corn of Zuni stock, fruit trees and basic vegetables while leaving a full acre grown with forest for firewood collection, and today he and several friends and family subsist almost entirely off this small plot of land, with surplus going to charity.

Apocalypse Now Asher Miller has been trying to convey the urgency of peak oil to the public for several years. As executive director of the Post Carbon Institute in Sebastopol, Miller believes global peak oil occurred last summer. From here on out, he says, we will see severe price instability of many foods and products as the age of cheap, easy energy comes to an end. Miller likens the last 150 years to a feeding frenzy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of thing happens to any species that suddenly finds an abundant food source. Its population explodes and things go way out of balance. Oil was our food source, and we went crazy for a while.â&#x20AC;? The American lifestyle has come to epitomize the worst of unsustainability; at the mere click of a finger, objects continents away assume rapid motion and appear at our doorsteps days later. Food and goods are impossibly cheap. Complex material things built from fossil fuel byproducts surround us, and when we tire of them we throw them away and buy more. The material world has attained a fantastic level of convenience for much of the population, thanks to ages and ages of accumulated solar power igniting in a geologic second, and soon the orgy must end. Miller believes the things we have today may still be available in the simpler times ahead, just in lower numbers and at a higher price. He even doubts global ¨

Fridley also adheres to the feeding frenzy analogy and believes there might be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;die-off,â&#x20AC;? just as marine algae blooms and crashes periodically. Yet Fridley views Transition as a process of world improvement. The environment around us has been falling apart for decades due to our excessive lifestyles, he notes, adding that in our oceans

and wild lands, doomsday has already arrived with deforestation, fisheries collapse and extinction. Peak oil gives us cause to rethink and reshape our lives, he says. Other peak oil proponents, however, see catastrophe. Some of the most frightening predictions about post-oil society come from Santa Rosa attorney Matt Savinar, an infamous figure among peak oil believers.

1=D 3@j 3 < 2  = 4  B6 3  E= @ : 2 solar-powered batteries and updates on â&#x20AC;&#x153;financial collapse.â&#x20AC;? While other peak oil thinkers frequently talk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;when the shit hits the fan,â&#x20AC;? Savinar says it already has. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The shit is hitting the fan now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just happening in slow motion, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hitting equally in all places.â&#x20AC;? Asked what individuals can do to ease their way into life after the oil crash, the 30-year-old advises people to â&#x20AC;&#x153;learn basic camping skills.â&#x20AC;? Wilderness survival tactics will also be handy in the world thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dawning. He urges Americans to relocate geographically to within miles of their families, as social support networks will be crucial in the coming age. While Transitionists see the imminent change as one of potential enrichmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;community gardens, cycling, skilled artisans on every cornerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Savinarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlook is bleak and shadowy. He warns that in the foreseeable future the world will experience â&#x20AC;&#x153;staggering horror.â&#x20AC;? While life in remembered times has been about â&#x20AC;&#x153;the pursuit of victory and money,â&#x20AC;? life in the near future, he predicts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;will be about tragedyâ&#x20AC;? as supermarkets close their doors and towns devolve into chaos, all because the lifeblood of oil has drained away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to externalize this reality to the future and to other places only because we had access to this incredibly dense source of energy,â&#x20AC;? he says.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There Is Always Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Michael Levy of Transition Santa Cruz strikes a decidedly more optimistic tone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who feel hopeless about this are doing so because they feel alone, due to the erosion of community in our society,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the power of coming together and acting in solidarity is tremendous, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Transition is about. Anyone who says there is no hope is not being realistic. There is always hope.â&#x20AC;? Transitionists are readying for the new era with open arms while struggling to convince others of the severity of the matter. In Santa Cruz, several city figures, including Councilman Don Lane and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate action coordinator, Ross Clark, have attended multiple meetings of Transition Santa Cruz. San Francisco, too, has acknowledged peak oil, and a city-appointed peak oil task force recently submitted to the supervisors a 120-page report detailing the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s readiness for and vulnerabilities to peak oil.

Elsewhere, most politicians and leaders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take peak oil seriously, and full governmental support may never arrive; Levy believes that politicians locally and nationally will be even more reluctant to discuss peak oil than theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to address climate change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transition is probably going to grow from the ground up before the government comes onboard,â&#x20AC;? he predicts. Fridley also believes assistance will not come from the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders. Transition can only be a grassroots revolution. He points out that Secretary of Energy Steven Chu was previously the director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where Fridley has done much of his thinking about peak oil and Transition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Chu] was my boss,â&#x20AC;? says Fridley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knows all about peak oil, but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about it. If the government announced that peak oil was threatening our economy, Wall Street would crash. He just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say anything about it.â&#x20AC;? Fridley says no one wants to face the fact that the oil-age feeding frenzy canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue forever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ask a scientist if something can grow forever exponentially, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then ask how our economy can keep on growing, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, it has to.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? But it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and the peak oil folks say something will have to give. The question is whenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and will we be ready? The small gathering of 70 people who met at the Center Street police station in May believe, or at least hope, that we have time to prepare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe peak oil is going to have enormous consequences for the culture, civilization and the world,â&#x20AC;? said Chuck Atkinson, a retired UCSC professor of creative writing who attended the meeting last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very little government involvement so far, and I think this will start from the ground up.â&#x20AC;? And it is. Transition movements are appearing worldwideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there are now roughly 150 localized efforts using the capital â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a small yet promising faction of the world clearly recognizes that, as the sun sets on the oil age, a revolution will occur, and we have two choices: React or prepare. Because with oil peaking, this party is over.

DAVID FRIDLEY will be delivering a lecture on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Energy Alternatives and the Energy Transitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Thursday, June 18, 7pm, at the First Congregational Church, 900 High St., Santa Cruz.

N THE video footage, Esperanza Spalding walks confidently down the red-carpeted aisle in a sequined camisole and formfitting skirt, her trademark afro an outsized halo. She takes her place at a standup bass on center stage and then, bathed in the spotlight, launches into a fresh, stripped-down rendering of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overjoyedâ&#x20AC;? marked as much by its expressiveness as by its economy. Four feet away, sitting in the front row, Barack and Michelle Obama take it in. The tribute to Stevie Wonder hosted by the White House in February derailed the 24-year-old Spaldingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first scheduled visit to Kuumbwa. Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; following a second White House appearance on May 12 at an evening

of jazz and spoken word hosted by the Obamasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she makes it up to her Santa Cruz fans in two shows on June 22. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in for a treat. Esperanza Spaldingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singing and bass playing f luctuate between the leisurely tempos of smoother jazz rhythms and a faster, swing-driven pace. She fuses jazz, blues and funk with Brazilian and AfroCuban inf luences. With her voice as a second instrument, she improvises melodies, scatting with the ease of an Ella Fitzgerald or a Sarah Vaughn. Recognizing the women who came before her, Spalding downplays the commotion around being a young woman in jazz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a couple more decades, jazz will credit women just as it does men,â&#x20AC;? she

says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m aware that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at the tail end of the initial trailblazers that made it possible for me to do my thing.â&#x20AC;? Spalding was raised in Portland, Ore., by a single mother. During grade school, she endured an extensive illness that resulted in her being home schooled on and off, a blessing in disguise. She bounced around different schools, and while at home she spent the extra time teaching herself to play the violin. Her talent blossomed quickly; at the age of 15, she was made concertmaster of the Chamber Music Society of Oregon. Violin wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t her only passion. At 14, Spalding happened to pick up a standing bass during music class at a high school she attended for a short while. When a teacher found her experimenting, she was given a single bass line to practice, and her love of the instrument took off from there. At 16 she earned her GED and through a scholarship was able to attend Portland State University to study music, focusing on the bass. But she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy, and when a teacher suggested she apply to Berklee School of Music, she followed up. Since she lacked the funds to make it across the country, her friends held a benefit concert, earning Spalding the money to attend the school. After graduating, Spalding became, at age 20, the youngest faculty member in the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently too busy performing to continue her stint as an instructor, Spalding says it was this time with her students that pushed her to remaster her own musical understanding, forcing her to â&#x20AC;&#x153;instinctively go back and delve into it again.â&#x20AC;? In May 2008 Spalding produced her first solo album, Esperanza, a culmination of her vocal, instrumental and compositional talents. As for her future, Spalding expects â&#x20AC;&#x153;incredible things.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interested in the continuing evolution of jazz and has a specific goal in mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to help music as an art reach that blend of cerebral, creative freedom . . . with accessibility and the knowledge of how to present it,â&#x20AC;? she says. ESPERANZA SPALDING performs Monday, June 22, at 7 and 9pm at Kuumbwa, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. Tickets are $25 advance/ $28 door; 831.427.2227.

Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Man Dave Alvin lets girls kick his ass 0GAB3D3>/:=>=:7

W

OULD YOU trust your music career to the man who wrote the lines â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was a winner/That became a doggieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner?â&#x20AC;? Dave Alvin does. It may not be easy to imagine Alvin, perhaps the most quintessentially Californian songwriter of the last three decades, buddying up to Nick Lowe, the droll British tunesmith best known for â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s So Funny â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Bout) Peace Love and Understanding,â&#x20AC;? who wrote the puppy chow lyrics for his â&#x20AC;&#x153;tributeâ&#x20AC;? song to loopy silent-film star Marie Prevost. But ever since Alvinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former band the Blasters toured with him in Europe back in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of been his songwriting swami. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Nick a long time,â&#x20AC;? says Alvin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go camping or anything. But I actually owe him my solo career. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been writing all these songs for my brother Phil to sing, and he told me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You should sing your own songs, mate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I told him, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t either, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never stopped me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Flash-forward to last summer, at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden Gate Park. Alvin had played Hardly Strictly before, but this time when the organizers called, he was dealing with the death of his best friend and longtime fixture in his backing band the Guilty Men, Chris Gaffney. He wanted something to shake things up. They asked him what he wanted to do, and he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All women band.â&#x20AC;? He immediately assembled an all-star ensemble featuring his fellow roots vets Amy Farris, Laurie Lewis, Nina Gerber, Cindy Cashdollar, Sarah Brown, Christy McWilson and Lisa Pankrantz. Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women was born. That first gig at Hardly Strictly in October, they happened to be on the same stage as Lowe, who caught their set. Afterward he told Alvin, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know what, mate? It could have been a gimmick, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? This time, Alvin didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need convincing. He took the whole group into the studio to record the

A3D3<¸A63/D3< Shucks, guess playing with an all-woman band ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that bad.

newly released Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women, and booked a cross-country tour that comes to the Rio on Thursday. Seatof-the-pants has been the MO, and so far itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all fell into place quickly,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were playing onstage with literally no rehearsal.â&#x20AC;? And sometimes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to go, as he discovered when they recorded the Tim Hardin song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Make Promises.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;About two-thirds of the song is this spontaneous jam that just happened. Nobody saw that coming. And if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rehearsed, it never would have happened. So there are pluses and minuses to no rehearsal,â&#x20AC;? he says. Alvin had played previously with all of his new band mates, but never all together. In picking the band, he went for a mix of different backgroundsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lewis is best known for bluegrass, Cashdollar for Western swing, Gerber for folk and Brown for blues. But he admits he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why exactly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working so well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I think too much about it, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

be there. I just trust that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew what everybody was capable of. I knew that no matter how much I screwed it up, it would still sound great.â&#x20AC;? And what is it like to have that traditional American band ratio of one girl to several guys suddenly flipped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;?When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the studio, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really no difference. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nonsexual. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no testosterone, no estrogen,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And onstage, I tend not to notice. Although, at the risk of sounding New Age, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a female energy. Surrounded by that, as a guy, maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in more loving arms.â&#x20AC;? After a few months on tour, though, all bets are off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see. They may get sick of my jazz pretty quick.â&#x20AC;? And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got his limits, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting tired of getting my ass whupped,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing acoustic on this tour, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m switching over to electric so I can get some licks in. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to wail a little bit, because these women are kicking my ass.â&#x20AC;? On this tour, Alvin is also promoting another record thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to his heartâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

the Gaffney tribute Man of Somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dreams. Alvin brought together artists like Joe Ely, Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo and Calexico to record songs written by Gaffney, who died in 2008 of liver cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aside from being my best friend, he was a really talented guy who never got a break,â&#x20AC;? Alvin says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get his goddamned break, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last thing I do. In 10 years, I want people to say to me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You knew Chris Gaffney?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Nor has the passing of time made Gaffneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death any easier to deal with. Alvin is just doing the best he can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get over that,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You put together an all-woman band and you go with it.â&#x20AC;?

7<B3@</B7=</:AC@47<52/G This weekend Surfrider and Surfing magazine join forces for a feel-good extravaganza of all things surf. First off is the Cowells Beach cleanup and storm drain stenciling (Saturday, noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;2pm at Cowells Beach), followed by Saturday eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Surf Art, Photography and Film Fest, featuring art by Tyler Fox (above), Colleen Gnos, Chris Ryan and others, as well as live music and DJ (7â&#x20AC;&#x201C;10pm, the Cosmo Factory, 131 Front St., Santa Cruz). Sunday the party continues with a Dick Dale concert at Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley (8:30pm, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz; $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25), with a portion of the proceeds going to the Santa Cruz chapter of Surfrider.

/::/113AA For more than 30 years Santa Cruz photographer Michele Benson has been the Catalyst house photographer, a position that has afforded her access to some of the biggest musical talents of the last three decades. This month Benson, who also worked as the Good Times shutterbug for many years as well as publishing work in Rolling Stone, The New York Times and other magazines, shows her iconic, large-format photographs of rock stars at the Mill Gallery in an exhibit running through June 30. Wendy Ridgway and the Blackouts play the reception.

Protecting Our Central Coast Since 1996 Couch Distributing is proud to continue the Save Our Surf program this year. We will donate a portion of sales of Budweiser and Bud Light between Memorial Day and Labor Day to Surfrider Foundation, Santa Cruz Chapter, supporting their efforts to protect our beautiful beaches and coast. So when you reach for a cold one this summer, make it Budweiser or Bud Light, and you’ll be helping us help Surfrider keep our beaches and bay clean.

RECYCLING THE FOAM: Education Program volunteer Dina El Dessouky helps to keep Styrofoam out of our landfills. During two holiday events, Surfrider amassed approximately 6,000 ft. of foam packaging for reuse or recycling.

Surfrider Activities Get the Foam Out Campaign: In April 2009, The Santa Cruz Chapter’s “Get the Foam Out” Campaign achieved an enormous victory with Watsonville’s passing of a ban of polystyrene disposable food service ware—this following similar bans by Capitola, Santa Cruz (City/County) and Scotts Valley. “The entire county is now the first foam-free zone in California,” says Chapter Co-Chair, Dustin Macdonald. For more information on this and related campaigns, see: http://surfridersantacruz.org/plastics.html. Beach Cleanups: Every first Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Surfrider volunteers can be found combing Santa Cruz County beaches for trash. These clean-ups provide a source of community volunteer work as required of students in many local schools, clubs and colleges. So far this year, more than 128 volunteers have collected 254 lbs of trash and 61 pounds of recycling. For more information on our monthly clean-ups, see: http://surfridersantacruz.org/beach_clean-ups.html. Register at: www.cleanbeachescoalition.org/cgi-bin/register.cgi. The Save Our Surf Campaign also enables Surfrider Santa Cruz to stencil environmental warnings on storm drains, put out newsletters, do local water testing, maintain its award-winning web site and have its own office/lab space.

FOUND AT THE CLEANUP: UCSC student Dave Jeffords pauses to marvel at a tide pool dweller during Surfrider’s March 7 cleanup at Waddell Beach. The next beach cleanup will be held after Independence Day. See http://surfridersantacruz.org for details.

(1954) Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably been more written on the politics of this film than the film itself. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not totally unreasonable, since director Elia Kazanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not-too-thinly veiled meditation on his own cozy cooperation with the House on Unamerican Activities committee leaves me feeling like I need to take a shower every time I finish watching it. And yet thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no denying the raw power of Marlon Brandoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in this story of one man standing up to

Santa Cruz 9.) (SP) B63>@=>=A/:

(PG-13; 107 min.) Boss lady Sandra Bullock and underling Ryan Reynolds fake an engagement for the benefit of the family of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bride.â&#x20AC;? Directed by Anne Fletcher. (Opens Fri at 41st Avenue, Santa Cruz 9, Scotts Valley and Green Valley.) A:33>23/:3@ (PG-

13; 97 min.) In the future, people connect their bodies to a shared virtual experience, while in the shadow of the supertechnology

factories literally work their employees until they fall asleep (dealing them sleep, as the title implies). But one man is ready to stand up to this dystopian future. Luckily, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always that one man. Someday, though, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to use his vacation hours and then where will we be? (Opens Fri at the Nick.) (SP) AC>3@0/2 (2007)

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe that Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg were writing the script for this breakout comedy when they were only 13, but maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of

Movie reviews by Steve Palopoli and Richard von Busack

why it came off as more authentic than most high school coming-ofage films. That and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s damn funny. And it has McLovin. And none of us knew yet that this was the only character Michael Cera could play. (Plays Fri and Sat midnight at the Del Mar.) (SP) G3/@=<3 (PG-13; 97

min.) Jack Black and Michael Cera basically play themselves, only in prehistoric times. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to take back Jack, but Michael Cera can just stay there until he gets over that annoying shtick he does in every

film. (Opens Fri at Santa Cruz 9, Scotts Valley and Green Valley.) (SP)

min.) Rian Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s follow-up to Brick has loads of charm and no plot. The postmod intentions are clear right off in naming this pair of grifting brothers Stephen (Mark Ruffalo) and Bloom (Adrien Brody) in a story thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part screwball comedy, part 1960s Swinging London caper.

has never been more endearing as the former New Jersey invalid heiress who wants to join the racket. Their regular partner is the chic Asian demolition expert Bang Bang (Rinko Kikuchi). Pursuing the brothers, probably, is an eye-patchwearing Maximilian Schell. (RvB) 23>/@BC@3A (PG-13;

135 min.) The surprise best foreign film winner at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oscars, proves that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as much potential for humor in a death comedy as there is in a sex comedy. Daigo (Masahiro Motoki) used to play cello in a Tokyo orchestra. Laid off, he decides to leave Tokyo to reclaim his family home in the country in picturesque Yamagata Prefecture, supposedly known as a region of bumpkins. His adoring wife, Mika (Ryoko Hirosue) agrees to the plan, seemingly without doubts. When Daigo shows up for an interview in answer to an help wanted ad, he learns it was a misprint; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working in a mortuary. As the boss, Sasaki, Tsutomu Yamazaki gives a top movie-starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in this role, his suaveness just getting richer as the film goes along. Director Yojiro Takita expertly mixes what seems like unmixable material: Departures is a movie about death thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffused with the joy of living. (RvB) 2@/5;3B=63::

(PG-13; 99 min.) Alison Lohman makes a spirited scream queen under Sam Raimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endlessly witty direction. Her Christine is a bank loan arranger who refuses a mortgage extension to a doddering Gypsy crone (Lorna Raver) only to find that her soul has been given 72 hoursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; notice before repossession. Delightful, gross and full of mad, fresh touches by Lohman, this movie proves that droll horror can be as effective as the more deadly serious. Here are visual effects that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 female face. Dileep Rao is a standout as the mystic who tries to diagnose Christineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you blaspheme against the devil in a graveyard?â&#x20AC;? (RvB) 3/@B6(G; 90 min.)

In Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Earth, twe just live here. James Earl Jones rumbles on the soundtrack as the sunrise is viewed from outer space. Holding the series of critter encounters together is the plight of a polar bear familyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dad,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momâ&#x20AC;? and two cubs, an heir and a spareâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;during the course of a year. The stunning small effects make more of an impression. Remarkable time-lapse photography pans gently across a valley while observing the yearly change of a forest of deciduous trees from bare branches to scarlet leaves. Otherwise, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the usual: shark vs. seal, polar bear vs. walrus, lions vs. elephant, and cheetah vs. gazelle. To the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit, Disney bites the bullet: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The planet is warming,â&#x20AC;? Jones says, leaving no room for backpedaling. Very, very cute, and the ending is somehow happy and comforting, just like the critter shows one drowses through at the end of a beery Sunday. (RvB) 3/AGD7@BC3 (PG13; 100 min.) Circa 1928: Larita, an outrĂŠ American female racecar driver (Jessica Biel), arrives at the English country mansion of her new husband, John Whittaker (Ben Barnes). Still in possession of the place is his dragon of a mother, Mrs. Whittaker (Kristin Scott Thomas), and Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formerly wayward stepfather, Mr. Whittaker (Colin Firth). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to understand why Stephan Elliott decided to redo Noel Coward like a man trying to refurbish an antique with Day-Glo paint. Elliottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad, but he does go inadvisedly modern, adding a butt shot, a crunched Chihuahua and a bit about an English fox hunt Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d swear was pinched from Auntie Mame. (RvB). (SP)

3D3@G:7BB:3AB3>

(PG-13; 103 min.) Documentary about the making of a Broadway revival of A Chorus Line, with dancers trying to make it big as they battle through auditions. Sort of like So You Think You Can Dance, with people who can actually dance. (SP) 4/2=A(Unrated; 97 min.) The Portuguese have passed down the tradition of fado music for a century and a half. This film attempts to explain why by showcasing modern fado artists performing in video-style setups. (SP) B636/<5=D3@(R; 100 min.) A well-built, good-looking and satisfyingly low comedy with a sturdy silentmovie two-reeler plot and the wit to realize that the Three Stooges format is solid gold. A quartet of Southern California types heads to Vegas for a bachelor party. Cut, eventually, to The Morning After: The groom has vanished, and the three chumps, rendered amnesiac by booze, must search for him. They are: kittywhipped, Larry-like Stu (Ed Helms), confident but wrongheaded Moe-style leader Phil (Bradley Cooper) and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;one-man wolf packâ&#x20AC;? Alan, played by the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standout, Zach Galifianakis, Curlying beautifully. Stick with it, since the first third is hit and miss; later, director Todd Phillips solidly builds the situations, thinking up strategies to bolster the risky comedy. (RvB) :/<2=4B63:=AB

(PG-13; 93 min.) You probably remember this Sid and Marty Krofft TV series about a family transported to prehistoric times as completely stupid, because you are a pleasant, well-adjusted person with excellent hygiene. But just to show that absolutely anything on television can inspire terrifying loyalty, I will point out that someone wrote a dictionary for the language spoken by Cha-Ka, the caveman who made friends with the Marshalls and taught them his native tongue. Perhaps the supernerds

who are on the Internet complaining about how the producers of this film turned the series into a Will Ferrell comedy should be happy Mel Gibson didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up to direct and make it a somber meditation on the nature of primate society, with unsubtitled dialogue in Cha-Kaese. Hey, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much what happened to Lost in Space. (SP) ;G:7437<@C7<A

(PG-13; 98 min.) In this comeback vehicle, Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) plays Georgia, an Athens tour guide who has a degree in history and has to settle for hauling a group of passengers around the ancient ruins of Greece. Harland Williams and Rachel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Debbie Downerâ&#x20AC;? Dratch play the ugly Americans who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure out why the Venus de Milo doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any arms. The makers are probably hoping for a girls-night-out audience that wants 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. (RvB) @C2=G1C@A7(R;

110 min.) A reunion of Diego Luna and Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal from Y tu mamĂĄ tambiĂŠn; great to have them back even in a lesser movie. The narrator is Batuta, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Batonâ&#x20AC;? (Guillermo Francella), who is essentially a trickster figure, with dyed whiskers and a sports car, ruining a pair of rural banana plantation workers by making their dreams come true; thanks to Baton they become futbol stars, but Betoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gambling and Tatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeless ambition to become a singer ruin them both. Diverting, and you get a lot of Mexico in the movie. (RvB) A7<<=;0@3 (R; 96 min.) UCSC grad Cary Fukunagaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s startling debut concerns the crossMexico run of a doomed gangbanger (Edgar Flores) and the girl who comes to love him, Sayra (Paulina Gaitan). For a

2@3/;8=0Xpslfs!fyqmpjubujpo!ublft!b!dsffqz!ofx!uxjtu!jo!uif!tdj.Ă&#x;!! uisjmmfs!Ă&#x2022;Tmffq!Efbmfs-Ă&#x2013;!pqfojoh!Gsjebz!bu!uif!Ojdl/ young first-time feature filmmaker, Fukunaga has succeeded at reconciling the tragedy and beauty of this life on the run. The movie contains multitudes: pearlescent dawn shots of smoking volcanoes, barrios seen from the crowded top of a freight train. There are lyrical interludes of refuge at stops along the rail yards where the travelers bathe and are fed. Be warned that this passionately told, moody film includes the horrific side of urban Mexican life. Could Sin Nombre be the first post-hip-hop urban movie? (RvB) B63A=:=7AB(PG13; 117 min.) On again, off again true-life story of a deranged street musician (Jamie Foxx) who turns out to have spent time at Juilliard; this and more is teased out during his troubled friendship with his Boswell (Robert Downey Jr., very good and very dry), an L.A. Times columnist named Steve Lopez. The highlight is the nigh-apocalyptic view of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boiling homeless encampment, like something out of Bosch. (RvB) AB/@B@39(PG-13; 136 min.) Happily, J.J. Abramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; version of the 40-year-old story is a loving refurbishing of

an old structure rather than a demolishing. Traditions honored include the green babe (Rachel Nichols) and the red-shirted ensign. As Kirk, Chris Pine himself is the ham this sandwich needs. Zachary Quinto is very poised as Spock, the tragic mulatto of space. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real tension arises in the partnership between Kirk and Spockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two halves of one great leader, calm calculation meeting insane daring. (RvB) AC<A67<31:3/<7<5

(R; 102 min.) In Albuquerque, two sisters get into the lucrative field of cleaning up after dead bodies. Christine Jeff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly pleasant comedy of death and bloodshed is lit up like a pink lamp shade by the ever-lovable Amy Adams and given some dark highlights by Emily Blunt as her grimier sibling. The film seems trampled over by a producerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold feet, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left has charm and hard-nosed humor. With Alan Arkin as the feckless father of the sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; looking fit as usual, Arkin; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably get a shovel and bury us all some day. (RvB) B63B/97<5=4 >3:6/; !(R;

106 min.) Grubby, truculent remake, with

John Travolta looking like an old and jaded rent boy as a criminal mastermind hostaging a group of subway riders. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opposed by Walter Garber (Denzel Washington), a low-key civil servant for the MTA; Washington downplays things until he practically vanishes. sOn the sidelines are a surprisingly ineffectual (if refreshingly low-volumed) hostage negotiator, John Turturro, and a butterball New York mayor (James Gandolfini) trying to survive his own scandal. (RvB) B3@;7</B=@( A/:D/B7=<(PG-13;115

min.) More robots, half the fun. Christian Baleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Connor stops, drops and rolls in front of ultraflat green-screen flickering images of chaos. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to save his teenage father (Anton Yelchin) long enough to send the guy back in time to impregnate his mother. Meanwhile, Mad Maxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American cousin, Marcus (Sam Worthington), goes on a mysterious mission to Skynetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a mission that would be more mysterious if its secret hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been blown in the previews. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ridiculously serious movie. Human feelings elude director McG so much you wonder if he

has a little titanium in his skull. (RvB) C>(PG; 96 min.) During the last Depression, a reject kid named Carl becomes fascinated with that darling of the newsreels, the intrepid dirigible pilot Charles Muntz, who discovered the bones of an immense bird in South America and was declared a fraud. Fast-forward and Carl (voiced by Ed Asner) is a square-headed, Spencer Tracy lookalike of 78. When trouble comes, he escapes in the only direction open to himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;straight up, with his battered house as the gondola to thousands of balloons, Unfortunately, a pesky 7-year-old scout, Russell (Jordan Nagai), is clinging to the front porch. The pair land in South America, where they discover a 13-foot-tall iridescent goonie bird and eventually Muntz himself (Christopher Plummer). Pixar spoils us. The news that Up is one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best films isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really news; Pixar has faith in an audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to feel without being manipulatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes them more than just a studio with an unusually dazzling command of the vocabulary of animation.

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of June 17 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): Are you secretly afraid of feeling secure? Do you equate stability with being bored and lazy? Do you suspect that your restless pioneer spirit makes you unfit for the slow, meticulous work of building sturdy foundations? If so, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope for you to changeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially if you make a big effort in the coming weeks. The moment is ripe for you to learn more about the arts of energizing comfort and stimulating calm and exciting peace. To jump-start the process, go get a massage. As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being stroked by nurturing hands, brainstorm about the additions and adjustments youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to make in your five-year master plan. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): Your education is about to take a curious and interesting turn. During the coming weeks, I expect that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll upgrade your street smarts and explore a whole new meaning for the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;hands-on experience.â&#x20AC;? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find out about an area of ignorance that was so deep and dark you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know about it, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take aggressive steps to get it the teaching it needs. Congratulations in advance for being brave enough to open your mind so wide, Taurus. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hunting for a fresh set of questions. 53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): The books of psychologist Carl Jung provide crucial insights into the nature of the unconscious mind. To the degree that I have any skill in deciphering the part of human intelligence that works in mysterious, secretive ways, I owe a great debt to him. I want to tell you an anecdote about him that may be useful. Once, as an adult, Jung took a break from work to go strolling on a beach. While meandering, he was overcome with a spontaneous impulse to build things as he did when he was a kid. He gathered some stones and sticks and used them to construct a miniature scene, including a church. As he finished, he was visited by a f lood of novel intuitions about his life. He concluded that his childlike play had called forth these revelations from his unconscious mind. I suggest you try a similar tack, Gemini: To access important information that your deep mind has been sequestering, go play a while.

1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): We ask that you not divulge the climax of the epic story to anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve let it sink in for a while and felt all the reverberations it has unleashed. After that, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be wise to speak about it only with skilled listeners and empathetic allies who can help you harvest the meaning of all the clues that were packed inside your adventures. One further counsel: Before you reach the absolute, final denouement of the drama, there may be a tricky turn that looks a lot like the ending. :3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): You have cosmic permission (even encouragement) to live on the edge for the next 28 days as long as you follow these guidelines: 1. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live on the edge to impress anyone; do it because you love it, or else donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it. 2. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain and worry about it. Enjoy it completely. 3. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect anyone else to join you on the edge. If they choose to do so with enthusiasm, fine. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t manipulate them. 4. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imitate the way other people live on the edge. Establish your own unique style. 5. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live on the edge for more than 28 days. Much longer than that and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start sabotaging the benefits. D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): In 1968, psychedelic rock band Iron Butterf ly released its landmark 17-minute song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.â&#x20AC;? Cable TV network VH1 later named it as the 24th greatest hard rock tune in history. There are different stories about the origins of the title, but all agree on one point: It was originally â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Garden of Eden.â&#x20AC;? It became â&#x20AC;&#x153;In-A-Gadda-Da-Vidaâ&#x20AC;? through some f luke, probably caused by the lead singer getting intoxicated and garbling the words as he performed it in the recording studio. This would be an excellent week for you to induce and capitalize on creative mistakes like that, Virgo. I hope you do, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help you get into the right frame of mind to stir up a mix of excellence and improvisation everywhere you goâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that formula practically guarantees success. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): Do you apologize to chairs when you bump into them? Often end up being the only one at a party whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk to the most boring person? Ever find yourself starting your sentences with â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not bothering you but I was wondering if you would mind if I . . .â&#x20AC;?? If

so, this is a good time to make a shift. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I suggest you add some bite to your demeanor. Do what feels interesting at least as often as whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s polite. Look for what advances the plot as much as what fosters harmony. The point is not to go overboard, of course. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to f ling insults or arouse friction. Add fire to your presentation, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start conf lagrations.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Evaluating Adam Lambert after one of his exotic, virtuoso performances back in April, American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi praised him as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;confusing, shocking, sleazy and superb.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a standard you could soon achieve in your own sphere, Scorpio. But do you want to? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to care less about maintaining your dignity than usual, and be especially forthright in expressing yourself. Let me leave no doubt about what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying: To be as superb as you potentially can be, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to be at least a little confusing and shocking and maybe even sleazy.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): Metaphorically speaking, Sagittarius, you have unearthed or are about to unearth a rare fossil. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty sensational discovery. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a missing link that could help you make sense out of episodes in your past that have always mystified or frustrated you. I urge you to learn all you can about this fossil. Follow every lead it points to. And ask your intuition to run wild and free as it dreams up possible interpretations to its multiple meanings. 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time you did something in return for all the free advice I give you. From a karmic perspective it might not be healthy for you to continue to take, take, take while never giving back. So this week, for a change, how about if you compose an oracle for me? Or send me a nice presentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nothing big or expensive, just a thoughtful token. JUST KIDDING! The truth is, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if you ever express your appreciation. You give me a momentous gift simply by caring enough to read my words. Being able to speak with you so intimately has made me a better and smarter person. Now I suggest you do what I just did: Acknowledge how much the receivers of your gifts do for you.

/?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things,â&#x20AC;? says actress and comedian Janeane Garofalo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth.â&#x20AC;? As witty as that thought may be, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend you make it your approach in the coming days. My analysis of the omens suggests that reality will be especially malleable. Even more than usual, it will tend to take the shape of your expectations. So please, Aquarius, try hard to see the lovely, graceful, unbroken glass as half-full of a delicious, healthy drink. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): I feel an expansive, permissive mood coming onâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in the cosmos, that is, not me. To be honest, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in a more conservative mood than the cosmos. But the planetary powersthat-be have decided to f loat you poetic licenses, blank checks, special dispensations, and wild cards. I just hope this free stuff wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make you forget about the finely-crafted containers and boundaries youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on lately. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feel better if you promised me to keep on doing the careful, conscientious things that seem to have earned you all the good fortune thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on its way. 6][Se]`Y(7[OUW\SWb¸abV`SS[]\bVa W\bVSTcbc`SO\Re`WbSOP`WSTSaaOg]\ ¡EVOb72WRBVWaAc[[S`b]7[^`]dS;g E]`ZR¸4`SSEWZZ/ab`]Z]UgQ][
