Company are evasive when questioned about the reasons for and the legality of their rules. The only comments from the company came from Regional Manager Keri Swenson, who claims that Mission Gardens and other JSCO properties merely enforce guidelines handed down by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. Yet officials at HUD deny that the department has any power to make such rules and that the landlord is solely responsible for establishing a code of conduct. â&#x20AC;&#x153;HUD does not publish house rules. Any conduct rules are made between the property owner and the tenants,â&#x20AC;? says Ken Cole, executive director of Housing Authority of the County of Santa Cruz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blaming the government is a popular option for people, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not surprised someone would want to blame us.â&#x20AC;? Some argue that tenants who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the rules should simply move someplace else. Picking an apartment, however, is not as simple as choosing a restaurant or a pair of shoes. Rules are

landlord and tenant issues. She occupies the middle ground between tenants and landlords and says both, at the end of the day, are just protecting their bottom line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think from the management point of view, they think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just being careful, and from the residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; point of view, they think they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any freedoms,â&#x20AC;? says Gysin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get calls from residents saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My kid canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play outside,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I get calls from landlords who are worried about safety. Essentially, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not illegal, a private landlord can establish almost any rule. But if there are questions whether the rules are legal, tenants can certainly pursue that in court.â&#x20AC;? 0

State abandons domestic violence victims 0G9/B:G<16

C Chardonnay II is licensed, insured and Coast Guard inspected

HEERS, car honks and whoops of support fill the air a block past the clock tower in every direction, interrupting the cadence of chanting: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop governor cuts to domestic services!â&#x20AC;? Shoesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; 800 pairs of themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;surround the base of the tower in orderly fashion, a testament to the number of women and children in the county who will go without assistance from domestic violence organizations. As part of Gov. Schwarzeneggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineitem veto to the state budget on July 28, the $16.3 million lifeline to the 94 domestic violence shelters and centers throughout California vanished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These shoes represent women and children that will not get the services we provide,â&#x20AC;? said Laura Segura of Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crisis Support~Defensa de Mujeres at the Aug. 6 rally. Even in the midst of statewide budget cuts, the announcement came as a shock to Segura and Dee Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, executive director of Walnut Avenue Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The funds to domestic violence services in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Public Health were ... completely eliminated,â&#x20AC;? says Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means the county lost $635,000.â&#x20AC;? In 2007 in Santa Cruz County there were 823 calls to law enforcement asking for protection during domestic violence incidents; 144 of these calls involved a weapon. However, most cases go

unreportedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a fact borne out by the disparity between reported calls and Walnut Avenueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case load of approximately 2,300 women every year who are victims of domestic violence. Steven Moore, head of the Domestic Violence Unit for the District Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, explains why. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot on the line when someone calls domestic violence in: a relationship, kids and an economic situation,â&#x20AC;? says Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not usually until the third or fourth event that it is reported. People usually think that it was just one incident or that it will stop.â&#x20AC;? Already six rural centers have been forced to close in California. At stake now are shelters and other services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you tell someone, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sorry, not today. Can you come back in three weeks for that restraining order?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. Both organizations receive some federal funding and local donations and grants, but the state cut represents 30 percent of their collective budget and 50 percent of Walnut Avenueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s domestic violence budget. Supporters find the cuts short-sighted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During economic hard times, domestic violence rises. When people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have jobs, they get more frustrated,â&#x20AC;? says Phillis Greenly, a member of the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Commission education team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of cutting funds we ought to increase them! This is taking money away from those who need it most.â&#x20AC;?0

The Glorious Gas Tax Can a tax at the pump rescue California? 0G83AA71/:CAA3<6=>


HEN District 27 Assemblymember Bill Monning hosted a town hall meeting about two weeks ago with the Campaign for Sensible Transportation, the table seemed set for a conversation on planes, trains and automobiles and the budget cuts to public transportation. But when County Treasurer Fred Keeley showed up, it became clear that the dialog on our abysmal budget deal has already left the station. After a budget session that gutted not just public transportation but every service imaginable, the two seemed to be trying to channel frustration into a call for major tax reform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to have a tax system which will be able to be passed by the legislature before the end of this year,â&#x20AC;? Keeley told the sizeable crowd at the Louden Nelson Community Center in Santa Cruz. Keeley, a member of the Commission on the 21st Century Economy, gave a brief outline of the package likely to come from the Commission, much of which, such as flattening the income tax, he acknowledges is regressive in nature. But, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it will have the capacity going forward to be able to bake a bigger revenue pie so we can claw our way backâ&#x20AC;? from the hole the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in. One initially startling component is something called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pollution tax,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;gasoline surcharge tax,â&#x20AC;? and it could be headed for a pump near you. It would establish a floor of $3.50 per gallon for gas in California. Whether the real cost was $2 or $3 a gallon, the price would never fall below $3.50. The difference would flow to state coffers. As the commission prepares to hand off its final set of recommendations to the governor and legislature in September, Keeley says a pollution tax is all but certain to be included. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Senate President Pro Tem] Darrell Steinberg essentially told me a pollution tax has to be part of the package,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a righty/lefty thing. This is a broadly supported concept.â&#x20AC;? The idea comes from Severin Borenstein, director of the University of California Energy Institute and a professor at UCBerkeley who proposed the idea in a white paper last December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would take a

small step in moving people away from the Ford Expedition and toward the Ford Focus,â&#x20AC;? says Borenstein. The tax will slide along, inversely, with the price of oil. As the price of oil goes up, the pollution tax diminishes, and as gas prices drop the tax would increase. A severance tax on oil extraction would kick in as the price of oil climbed and the pollution tax amount sank, offsetting volatility. The spoils, calculated back in 2008 to be about $10 billion a year, would go to transportation, says Keeley. Borenstein says he would prefer to see the money go into the general fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you start earmarking money, you end up with consequences that box us into bad decisions.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only issue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been raised with the tax. Jean Ross, executive director of the California Budget Project, has testified before the commission that a pollution tax is unfair to lower and middleincome families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amount that people drive doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vary much on income. Lower income people end up spending a lot more of their income,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow. The goal is to have people consume less fuel. If they do that, your revenues are going to decline, not increase.â&#x20AC;? Dennis DeCota, executive director of California Service Station & Automotive Repair Association, and a gas station owner for 31 years in Marin County, agrees, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What it does is take people looking for work, students, and people that are on fixed incomes and it really punishes them,â&#x20AC;? he says. However, DeCota was pleased, albeit skeptical, of one of the tax commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other recommendations: elimination of the state sales tax. He says he would gladly trade sales tax for a pollution tax, which is, according to Keeley, how people should view the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taken as a package, most people will pay less taxes,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never a constituency for higher taxes, only what taxes purchase. If you would like a cleaner environment, healthier families, what price are you willing to pay to make that happen?â&#x20AC;? 0

Chairmen of The Board Excerpted photos from a new history of surfing in Santa Cruz that pays tribute to the characters and community who built the sport


ight after Thomas Hickenbottom signed with Arcadia Publishing last fall to compile a pictorial history of surfing in Santa Cruz, the bottom fell out of his plans. Hickenbottom, a Santa Cruz native and professional surfer during the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, knew heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have no problem gathering photographs from the 1950s and 1960s; his friends had plenty of those. But the collection he was relying on for 90 percent of the vintage photos from the 1940s and earlier â&#x20AC;&#x201D;photos belonging to original Santa Cruz Surfing Club member Harry Mayoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was suddenly off limits, tied up in litigation over rights to the images and the club name. It may have been a blessing in disguise. Nerveracking though it was, it forced Hickenbottom to reach out to other surfers, some of whom had moved away from Santa Cruz years before. Slowly the significance of his task dawned on him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize what a cosmic thing I was doing for the whole surfing community, to be able to talk to all these people and sit in their living rooms and

realize what incredible people were involved in this thing called Santa Cruz surfing,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done for posterity, man! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so bloody cool!â&#x20AC;? Hickenbottom, a tanned, good-natured man with laughing hazel eyes and the upright, eternally youthful vibe of the soul surfer, speaks unselfconsciously about the Great Spirit and the role of service when he talks about the book. But it works on a material level, too, as a history of how boards themselves shaped the sport, the evolution from redwood plank to balsa to foam blank to shortboard fostering a constant expansion of maneuverability and athleticism. His book ends in 1968, after a decade of foam longboards had made possible the stylistic riding of the era. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some ways it was more of an art form than an athletic endeavor,â&#x20AC;? he says. Even the hotdoggingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that quaint termâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of the day was graceful. Of course surfing didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end in 1968. Hickenbottom himself went on to adapt to the shortboard revolution of the 1970s and 1980s, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as excited about surfing today, tow-ins and all, as

he ever was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going in all different directions!â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who knows where it could go?â&#x20AC;? Ultimately, though, the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s significance, at least to its author, resides in the story of a developing Santa Cruz surfing community, one that embraces the physically limited along with the supremely gifted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone were to ask me to write the history of Santa Cruz surfing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tear out this page and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Here it is, man!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Hickenbottom. He turns to a page with two plates, one of Dick Keating on a monster wave at Steamer Lane and one of Danny Cortazzo helping a young amputee catch a two-foot swell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can go into the consciousness, man, and this is where we need to be going. We need to be changing things for the better. And I think the Santa Cruz surfing community is like a metaphor for that.â&#x20AC;?

A9G>7:=BComposer Osvaldo Golijovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s airborne â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Azulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brought down the house on opening night of the Cabrillo Music Festival.

Sound of The New

Accessible narratives and technical virtuosity mark the first weekend of the Cabrillo Music Festival 0GA1=BB;/11:3::/<2


OR EVEN brand new music, the traditional expectation for personal artistic expression holds. Whatever else is afoot, the composer is expected to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;something to say.â&#x20AC;? So says Marin Alsop, music director of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, in defending her choices of orchestral music that she hopes will reward the hundreds who now f lock regularly to Santa Cruz, from near and far, each August. While Alsop and her amazing orchestra consistently deliver great

goods, the very personal expression on tap can be, and indeed often is, the exact challenge facing both composer and listener. For the latter, that has to be evaluated on the f ly, with little preparation and maximum conscious attention. Take David Heathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rise from the Dark, heard on Festival opening night last Friday in its world premiere and the British composerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite among his works (as he said by way of introducing it). The 25-minute score calls for a virtually uncountable

number of sonic combinations and â&#x20AC;&#x153;specialâ&#x20AC;? effects. Composed 24 years ago, it took inspiration from the untimely death of a child and attempts to give the deceased a full lifetime of experience. Rhythmically charged episodes alternate with spacious â&#x20AC;&#x153;romanticâ&#x20AC;? passages on the orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strings, often with plaintive wind solos. Stylistically, it sounds like the work of many other contemporary composers, rather in the box. The busier bits, where â&#x20AC;&#x153;everybody does everything all the time,â&#x20AC;? were difficult to track, hence to capture in memory. Nevertheless, Alsop and the orchestra gave as compelling an account as could be imagined. Outside the box, and the high point of the program, was Osvaldo Golijovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Azul, a cello concerto in four movements that, as the composer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;never touches the ground.â&#x20AC;? The soloist, Alisa Weilerstein, pretty well owns it now, after participating with the composer as he reworked the 2006 original. Weilerstein soared across the blue sky with riveting conviction. Golijovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instincts for â&#x20AC;&#x153;main eventâ&#x20AC;? tracking, clarity of resources and ease of expression feel totally comfortable in any style. In this case, there were Bach-like ostinatos supporting the outer movements, f litting firef lies in the nocturnal second movement and a virtuoso improvisatory third movement with soloist, exotic â&#x20AC;&#x153;nativeâ&#x20AC;? percussion and â&#x20AC;&#x153;hyperâ&#x20AC;?-accordion, for which Alsop stood without conducting. That electrifying moment, with hints of Indian ragas, became the obvious de rigueur encore. Australian Brett Deanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amphitheater opened the show, and, on the following night, his Moments of Bliss, four â&#x20AC;&#x153;intermezzosâ&#x20AC;? from his only just completed opera, confirmed great variety and imagination. On that program, the standout work was Avner Dormanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double-percussion concerto, Spices, Perfumes, Toxins, a staggering tour de force for (mostly) marimbas and drums that orchestra members Steve Hearn and Galen Lemmon nailed.

E6/B/:3AG=C WHITE HANKIES, long sticks, bright-colored vests and little bellsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;must be the morris dancers! For the first time in 12 years, Santa Cruz is hosting the annual California Morris Ale, bringing dancers from Seattle to San Diego together to whoop it up. Morris? Ale? Morris might be derived from the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moorish;â&#x20AC;? the Crusaders brought it back with them from the Middle East in the 1400s. While â&#x20AC;&#x153;aleâ&#x20AC;? simply means â&#x20AC;&#x153;conventionâ&#x20AC;? these days, local churches would brew a batch of ale and sell it to raise money at the festivals. The ale is no longer a big part of the festival in modern times, unfortunately. Emily Olsen, 16, of Ben Lomond started morris dancing when she was 7. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the stares I get dancing downtown. Morris is crazy even for Santa Cruz,â&#x20AC;? she says. The stares must be provoked by the wild leaping and outlandish costumes. The typical morris dancer wears brightly colored vests or â&#x20AC;&#x153;baldricks,â&#x20AC;? armbands with ribbons and leather shin pads with 50 oversized jingling bells. The jigs usually consist of six dancers leaping from foot to foot and clacking their sticks together. Audience members cheer â&#x20AC;&#x153;higher!â&#x20AC;? to push the prancing dancers on. Joe Laurence of the Seabright Morris team jokes that audience members always ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are they doing? Why are they doing it? How do we make them stop?â&#x20AC;? (Kat Lynch)

THE MORRIS DANCERS perform Saturday, Aug. 15, noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;1:15pm, at DeLaveaga Park, Santa Cruz. Free.

Half Baked 8=</B6/<E3<9

Meryl Streep is wonderful, but beware of the blog in bifurcated biopic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Julie & Juliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 0G@716/@2D=<0CA/19


ERYL STREEPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S greatnessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;her facility with accents, her plasticity and that uncompromising quality every lasting actress has to haveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has been used to portray the limits of human suffering. In Julie & Julia, Streep gets to kick up her heels. She has such fun with the part of the cookbook writer Julia Child that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistently intoxicating to watch. The gusto of this life is like the little bits of happiness that turn up in other biopics. You keep waiting for the clouds to gather. You know how it is when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching a film, and the happiness onscreen is so complete that you know someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to pay for it. When Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; equally ungainly and boisterous sister, Dorothy (Jane Lynch), turns up in Paris, and the ladies chatter like exotic birds, throwing back their red wine by the glass, you think: Ah, so the sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get cancer. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. Streep continues at full sail through the film, elevated a bit on high heels and trotting with the happy clunkiness of a Clydesdale. Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; distinctive voiceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the whoop of surprise, the trill and warble when she talkedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;makes Streepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the film enthralling. As her beloved husband (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spoil this, nothing fatal befalls him), we have a dapper, droll Stanley Tucci, playing a cultural attachĂŠ. Tucci shows the best way to hold your own with a first-rate actor having the time of her life: recede a little and react slyly. Julia has her crisisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;first overcoming a soupcon of prejudice to try to graduate Le Cordon

E363/@B8C:7/But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not crazy about Julie in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Julie & Julia.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Bleu and then yearning to take the good news of French cooking back to 1950s America. But in this scrumptiously artdirected version of 1950s Paris, she has a great good time. Watching this womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oversized delight in food and wine and sex is prime stuff. But there had to be some way to hold the film together, and sure enough disaster befalls. Half of this film is based on Julie & Julia, the hustledinto-print book version of a blog by Julie Powell. Amy Adams, the most charming young actress alive, plays Julie, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a horror. Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schtick was cooking all the recipes in Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year, a grim marathon conducted in a tiny Queens kitchen. She obsesses over this task while working a day job and browbeating her husband (Chris Messina). Director Nora Ephron tries for frankness in her script by having Julie Powell call herself a bitch. That isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to rehab her.

Ephron may not have the taste or the patience to deal with a girl of our decade, compared to her more idealized notion of life in the 1950s. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably inadvertent, but the film has the aspect of a hit job on the blog generation. This is Ephronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best movie by a mile, but the dreary back and forth about Julie Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems are hard to bear. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a study in contrasts, for sure: one person marvels at life, another grinds. One person tries to bring joy to the world, the other tries to figure out the fast track to fame. JULIE & JULIA (PG-13; 123 min.), directed by Nora Ephron, written by Ephron and based on books by Julie Powell, Julia Child and Alex Prudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;homme, photographed by Stephen Goldblatt and starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, plays countywide.

Travelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wife: The Beginning, six-year-old Clare gets a bad feeling that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to put the director of Flightplan in charge of a science fiction romance. And in The Time Travelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wife 2: Electric Boogaloo, the Jason character gets so mad that he got cut from the first film he jumps back to 1980 and starts murdering teenagers at Crystal Lake.

A movie with this title can only mean one of three things: (a) PBS, having run completely out of ideas, is hiring extraterrestrials to travel

#2/GA=4 AC;;3@(PG-13; 95

min.) Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a greeting-card writer, has his heart broken

by a girl he knew for about two years. She was called Summer (Zooey Deschanel). As Tom recalls this tale in random-accessed moments, we begin to see the bigger picture. (500) Days of Summer is allegedly an antiromantic film, but the result is yet another alterna-date movieâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a little brighter, a little more referential, than usual. The scenes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go on so long that they wear out their welcome. And yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so full of negative spaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;places where jokes could have been planted, places where the characters could have been deepened. If only director Marc Webb had spent as much time thinking how to fill in the blanks as he spent murmuring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be Annie Hall for our generation.â&#x20AC;? (RvB) 4C<<G>3=>:3(R;

146 min.) Forget Adam Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to an actual dramatic role, what shocks everybody about this movie is the trailer that reminds them this is only â&#x20AC;&#x153;the third film from the director of Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.â&#x20AC;? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all sitting there going, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wait, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Judd Apatow make every comedy now? No? Then why the hell is Seth Rogan in all of them?â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in this too, by the way, playing a young comic whom Sandler begins to mentor after having a near-death experience. (SP) 54=@13 (PG; 88

min.) In the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, there was an anime film that was called G-Force in America. It was an American version of the Japanese TV series Gatchaman, about superhero ninjas. Hollywood is now making a live-action film based on that same series. However, none of this really has anything to do with anything, since this is not that film. I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anything to say about a stupid Jerry Bruckheimer spy comedy starring computer-animated guinea pigs. (SP)

1=0@/ (PG-13; 120 min.) Behind-the-scenes moments to look for when this DVD comes out: Sean Penn is passed over for a role on the G.I. Joe team after he fails to demonstrate proper â&#x20AC;&#x153;kung-fu gripâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;eagle-eye visionâ&#x20AC;? in audition; producers screen Todd Haynesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1987 underground film Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, which was acted out with Barbies, and briefly consider casting actual G.I. Joe dolls; writers somehow remain blissfully ignorant to the fact that their plot point about the bad guys trying to destroy the Eiffel Tower was used in Team America: World Police, as a parody of how bad the plots for movies like this are; project stalls when everyone involved realizes a live-action movie based on plastic action figures is a really stupid idea, revived when Transformers becomes one of the most successful movie franchises in history. (SP) B636/<5=D3@(R; 100 min.) A satisfyingly low comedy with a sturdy plot and the wit to realize that the Three Stooges format is solid gold.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) 6C;>2/G (R; 101

min.) Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard take the bromance to its ultimate conclusion, but just for a day. B636C@B:=193@

(R; 138 min.) The soldiers of Bravo Company are stationed in Baghdad for the 2004 fighting. Central to the film is the mystery of Staff Sgt. James (Jeremy Renner) who comes in to replace a slaughtered demolition expert. Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; risk-taking amazes and angers his subordinate, Sgt. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie). The suspenseful, grimly funny script is by coproducer Mark Boal. Renner is outstanding 578=3(@7A3=4B63 as the inhumanly



brave demolition expert. Director Kathryn Bigelow does what Howard Hawks would do; she finds the cooperation between men of great competence in a killing trade, rather than pumping up rivalry. Bigelow breaks through the sense of anonymity that characterizes most Iraq war movies, where helmeted men move alike and talk the same terse slang. However, The Hurt Locker takes an essentially knightly view of the war, of men suiting up and closing their visors. Thus this is the first Iraq film an American audience can feel good about. Boalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s script does discover the hollow inside the brave James: the missing part that made him never stop to realize why he did his job. That final revelation is smart filmmaking. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that the hollow inside this movieâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;inside almost all the war movies, even the good onesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as easily seen. If war is a drug, as The Hurt Locker claims, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushing it? (RvB) 8C:738C:7/ (PG-13; 123 min.) See review, page 41. =¸6=@B3<(PG13; 97 min.) Quirky

and funny arthouse drama follows a train conductor on the night of his retirement. The onslaught of crossedout vowels in the cast and crew names guarantees itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made with the Scandinavian commitment to quality. (SP) />3@431B 53B/E/G(R; 98 min.)

Island tourists discover theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being hunted by a psychopath in what appears to be (despite a lack of credit) yet another version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Most Dangerous Game,â&#x20AC;? the 1924 short story which has been adapted and ripped off more times than maybe any other piece of genre fiction. Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich star. (SP) B63>@=>=A/:

min.) World-weary psychiatrist Dr. Henry Carter (Kevin Spacey), all dogfaced with sleeplessness and indulgence in the evil herb, needs to heal himself. He has a real

workload: Kate (Saffron Burrows) and Evan (Joel Gretsch), a moviestar/rock-star couple known as Katevan, are on the verge of splitting. Shamus (Jack Huston, Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson) is an Irish actor unhappy with his work, Robin Williams is an aging movie star who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop cheating on his wife, and Jeremy (Mark Webber), a lawnmowing nobody in this star-studded scheme. Lastly, workingclass African-American girl Jemmma (Keke Palmer) is seeing Dr. Carter but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell him why she has a cast on her arm from having tried to knock some sense into the mirror in her high school bathroom. So they go to the films together. Shrink insists everyone in LA is in the Industry, whether they know it or not. But the lifeaffirming, everythingto-all-people script keeps introducing new characters until, at the end, director Jonas Pate is forced to act with all the aplomb of a man herding cats. (RvB) A=C:>=E3@(PG-13; 100 min.) Promising but disappointing documentary by Jeffrey Levy-Hinte about the

African and American soul concert in Zaire in 1974 in connection with the Ali-Forman fight. It has great components: an irresistible clip of Miriam Makeba performing â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Click Song,â&#x20AC;? BB King doing his signature â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Thrill Is Gone,â&#x20AC;? some vintage era James Brown, and the unarguable highlight of the film, Bill Withers. Too much focus on the SpinalTapish goings on behind the scenes makes this an exercise in musical coitus-interruptusâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; every time you get into a groove, the film pulls you out. While When We Were Kings (upon which LevyHinte was editor) made Mohammed Ali just about the most fascinating man on earth, the Ali footage here merely reminds you that the quickwitted like to repeat themselves. (RvB) B63C5:GB@CB6

(R; 96 min.) After getting stuck with Seth Rogan as an arresteddevelopment geek in her last romantic comedy, Katherine Heigl now gets Gerard Butler as a douchebag radio personality. This woman deserves combat pay. (SP)

Astrology Free Will

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of August 12 /@73A (March 21-April 19): I started producing some good work within 10 years of launching my writing career, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit my stride until the 18th year. From what I hear, many other skills require a long training period as well. According to an Aikido adept I know, for example, a practitioner may require 30 years to master the moves and spirit of that martial art. And as for the ability to carry on a successful intimate relationship: It usually takes a lifetime. I hope this line of thinking helps you get a more practical perspective on the specific prowess youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to develop, Aries. Keep in mind that it probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be worth learning if you could become a wizard in a flash. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no rush. Give yourself credit for how far youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come.

B/C@CA (April 20-May 20): Talk to yourself more and better. Not just with streams of chatter that meander aimlessly. Not with darts of self-deprecation mixed in with grandiose fantasies. No, Taurus. When I urge you to talk to yourself more and better, I mean that you should address your self with focused tenderness. I mean that you should be driven by the bold intention to lift up your mood, praise your skills, shower blessings on your vulnerabilities, and love yourself down to the core. You will attract cosmic assistance if you do this playful work. You will bathe your subconscious intelligence with healing luminosity.

53;7<7 (May 21-June 20): I climbed the endless steps to the sanctuary, brushing off large spiders that kept landing on me. I stood in the rain for hours waiting for the gates to open. The guardian of the threshold wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let me in until I answered his tricky and sometimes insulting questions. Through it all, I maintained my patience and poise and reverence. At no time did I give in to the temptation to curse the difficulties. And when I finally entered, when I got my chance to penetrate to the heart of the rose petalstrewn labyrinth, my persistence was rewarded. As I knelt there in amused awe, face to face with the sacred jokester, I got a useful answer to the most important question in my life. Would you like a comparable experience, Gemini? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible in the coming week.

A1=@>7= (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What tricks have you employed to outwit your fears in the past? Remember them. Review them. Next, think about the people who have inspired you to be more courageous than you imagined were capable of. If you take these two actions, you will prepare yourself well for the week ahead. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that the things youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scared of will be any bigger or badder than usual. But I want you to know that you now have the potential to gain a robust new power over them. A/57BB/@7CA (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are currently getting more miles per gallon and more bang for the buck than you have in a long time. Your IQ is creeping higher. Your knack for scoring good parking places is at a peak. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll even go so far as to say that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been quite a while since youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been teased by such thoroughly useful temptations. And get this, Sagittarius: I suspect that you have an enhanced instinct for taking smart risks. The only downside of all this good news is that you may not know your own strength. That means you should test it fast; find out more about its potential. Otherwise, you might break someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart by accident, or prematurely shatter the illusions of a person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet ready to stop living in fantasyland. 1/>@71=@< (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if your whole life passed instantly before your eyes one day soon. Not because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come close to literal physical death or anything dangerous at all, but rather because you will have a brush with a magic power that could be yours in the future â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a magic power that will be possible for you to fully own only if you cut the umbilicus that links you to a dying source. Wow. Did I really say that in a fun little astrology column? And are you really prepared to change your life because of something you read in a fun little astrology column? I hope so. In the coming weeks, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the fun little things that have the greatest potential to align you more closely with your soulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s code.

/?C/@7CA( Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the days ahead,

Buckminster Fuller said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pollution is nothing but resources weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not harvesting.â&#x20AC;? If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, Cancerian, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of resources available to you right now, although they will have to be converted from their smoggy and effluvial state. So for example, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a songwriter, the noxious emotions floating around could be raw material for a sparkling tune. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lover, the peculiar vibes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with could inspire you to prevent a dumb pattern from repeating itself.

you may not realize what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for until you find it. I advise you, therefore, to put into action the following five-point plan. 1) Suppress any know-it-all tendencies you might have. 2) Revive your childhood talent for being voraciously curious about everything. 3) Ask more questions than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever asked before. 4) Figure out how to be receptive without being passive, and how you can be humble without muff ling your self-confidence. 5) Consider the possibility that you have a lot to learn about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for you.

blessed eastern India with their usual downpours this year. In response, frustrated farmers have resorted to a radical ritual: asking their unmarried daughters to get naked and plow the fields. They believe that this will embarrass the weather gods into acting correctly. In general, I approve of being creative in making appeals to deities, but I recommend that you use a different approach. Rather than shaming them into providing you with more love and mojo, try flattering them. As if you were celebrating Halloween early, go around impersonating a god or goddess who is overflowing with love and mojo.

from the ancient Greek writer Aesop to create a parable you can use in the coming weeks. Once upon a time there was a very thirsty crow. Rain hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fallen in a long time, and the creek from which sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always drunk had dried up. Searching and searching for a bit of moisture, the crow finally happened upon a tree under which sat a ceramic pitcher with some water in it. But the pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neck was narrow, and the crow couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit her beak past it to reach the water. Inspired by desperation, the crow at last got an idea. Why not drop small rocks into the pitcher, making the waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level rise? And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what she did. How sweet it was when at last she quenched her thirst.

D7@5= (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Two annoyances that had been bugging you before your exile have been neutralized. But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got at least one more to go, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t relax yet. In fact, I think you should redouble your vigilance. Check expiration dates on your poetic licenses and pet theories. Scrub the muck from your aura, even if your friends seem to find it â&#x20AC;&#x153;interesting.â&#x20AC;? And learn to read your own mind better so you can track down any disabling thoughts that might still be lurking in remote corners.

:70@/ (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your upcoming adventures will probably make no sense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unless you redefine what constitutes â&#x20AC;&#x153;sense.â&#x20AC;? If you do that, your adventures could make absolutely lucid sense in a backward, upside-down way that will rejuvenate you sexually, spiritually and emotionally. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another approach to understanding the point Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to make: The epic drama youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about to begin may yield no apparent lesson and provide no practical guidance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unless you empty your mind and give up hope for extracting specific lessons and guidance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in which case you will be flooded with wise insights.
