C>F=70;;1D;;84B Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy to tear things down, to kill an opportunity for honest change, to destroy a fragile alliance, to shut out the truth by telling dramatic lies for the cameras and repeating them day in, day out. Even if people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe your lies, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be confused enough to not act on the truth you are trying to defeat. The tea-party town hall protesters have learned this lesson well. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve discovered that there is no need to put forth good arguments for their points or to meaningfully debate their ideas at the congressional town hall meetings set up just for that purpose. Why should they do that, when they can go on a rampage, yell and scream, intimidate and threaten, even bring guns to the meetings? Such activity guarantees the presence of TV cameras. News organs will report these activities as â&#x20AC;&#x153;passionâ&#x20AC;? for a cause, and not as the lunacy that it really represents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy to destroy someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort, to denigrate the fragile progress of those sitting at the table trying

to work out a common goal. Like Republicans everywhere have learned, all you have to do is shout and swear, wave guns and f lags, threaten and rant, and they can get their way. Not by converting anyone to their cause, but by simply making politics so unpleasant that most people just go home and hide.

740;C720A4½B;8=48=C74B0=3 I am a marriage and family therapist and healthcare provider, and want to urge President Obama to continue to push for a public option for healthcare. While I believe a single-payer system is preferable, not having at least a public option is capitulating to the lobbying of insurance and pharmaceutical companies, and to the harassment of right-wing groups. Allowing them to control the process only encourages them to escalate their outrageous tactics. When

taxpayer money bails out Wall Street, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear right-wing pundits railing at socialism but, when healthcare may be provided to the middle class, working class and the poor, well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socialism and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that. Such hypocrisy is shameful. Unfortunately, many Democrats have also received substantial contributions from the insurance and pharmaceutical industries which is obviously a conf lict of interests. This is not Democracy. At what point do we call campaign contributions bribery? President Obama was elected along with a majority of Democrats in Congress to initiate change. Healthcare reform is a place to draw a line in the sand for the benefit of most of our citizens. A huge majority of Americans want healthcare to be available for all and affordable, not to enrich the already wealthy companies.

In line with your effort to educate folks about anaerobic digesters as a way to process agricultural waste (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waste? Not!â&#x20AC;? Aug. 12), we do have a few in our region. Clos du Bois Winery installed one at their winery several years ago, as did Strauss Dairy in Marin County, and most recently, one was placed at St. Anthony Farm, which was an incredible rehabilitation facility as well as a pretty progressive farm with an anaerobic digester, large garden and their own butter-making operationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;until they were forced to close. Another dairy bites the dust.

I am blown away in dismay at your leading column on the Texas barbecue chef (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lonestar State of Mind,â&#x20AC;? Aug. 5). Good God almighty, where the hell do you imagine the meat comes from? The animal kingdom in the air, on the ground and in the sea live in terror of humans and our instatiable appetite for their lives, their meat, their pelts, feathers and skin. Why do you glorify our ignorance?

After some 13 years, Peter Phillips changes the guard at Project Censored By Suzanne Daly

D

nusual amid the conflict and turmoil that currently plagues Sonoma State University, Project Censored has undergone a smooth and peaceful transition. The highly esteemed media research group of faculty and students who ferret out and then spotlight news stories that lack yet deserve national coverage has quietly changed its directorship. Peter Phillips, on board the project for the past 15 years and at the helm for the past 13, has handed the title off to Ben Frymer, an SSU professor of liberal studies with a Ph.D. in sociology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did 13 years and 13 books, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get someone else involved,â&#x20AC;? Phillips

says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really want to expand the Project Censored model to universities all over the world, because I believe that universities are where fact-checking occurs. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge amount of information out on the internet, and people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what to trust. I want to get universities validating news stories and literally create a whole system that undermines the corporate media propaganda system.â&#x20AC;? Started as a grassroots effort at SSU in 1976 by Carl Jensen, Project Censored aims to train students in media research and pursue free press rights in the United States. Some 18 years later, Phillips, a sociology professor with a Ph.D. in political science and a 20-year career in nonprofit management, was hired at the school. Jensen approached him shortly

afterward and offered him the directorship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just that quick,â&#x20AC;? Phillips recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought about it for a few weeks, but it gave me a very interesting platform and the ability to talk about social issues in a broad way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big plus of the job.â&#x20AC;? Phillips shadowed Jensen for two years before officially taking over in 1996. He continued teaching sociology of media and media censorship at the same time, and both classes work toward the production of the annual book, Censored: Media Democracy in Action, that features the top 25 nationally most underreported news stories. Surrounded by hundreds of books on shelves and in boxes in his office in Stevenson Hall, Phillips sits at his computer and discusses the transformation wrought &&

usually look forward with excitement to the late August start of classes that I teach at Sonoma State University. This summer, after faculty meetings and all-university Town Halls, I have dreaded the delayed early August reopening of registration for the fall semester, the growing student anxiety and the pending chaos as students arrive. Students return to a greatly diminished education ravaged by budget cuts; there are fewer classes with larger sizes, a tuition increase of 30 percent since May, fewer services and disappearing faculty. Students have been away for the summer, most of them working. Their stress and fears about their futures have grown. They will soon confront SSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mounting financial problems face to face. How might they respond? As for faculty, our furloughing means that we will be paid for two days a month less. However, many of us will work the same long hours, so it is really a pay-reduction scheme. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m scheduled to teach three courses this fall. But as with all part-time lecturers, I have no job security. Come spring, I may not be rehired to teach. The situation for the younger generation is much worse. I prefer to say yes to studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; legitimate requests. I have had to say no more times since the first registration for classes last spring than I have ever said no to students in my 35 years of college teaching. And the noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are not over. I anticipate a horde of students at the door wanting to get into one of those closed classes of mine that satisfy a general education requirement for graduation. My â&#x20AC;&#x153;War and Peaceâ&#x20AC;? section closed out in the early days of the first registration with its maximum of 20 students. More than that number of students, most of them qualified, subsequently emailed me pleading for permission to enroll. The new rules do not allow me to permit more than the cap, regardless of studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; good reasons, like needing just one unit to graduate. Second registration produced another round of requests to enroll. The third round of noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s began soon after the Aug. 3 registration opened. The fourth round will be on the first

day of class. I have already asked two graduate students to help me at the door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hold the lineâ&#x20AC;? is the phrase from high school football days with which I have been coaching them. When I went to a state university for undergraduate education, the tuition was only a few hundred dollars. Sonoma State now costs almost $5,000 a year in fees, plus room and board, other living expenses and books that often cost over $100 each. Life is not easy for California State University students. Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failing public higher education system does not bode well for our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. We need better educated rather than noneducated citizens for our rapidly changing world. California and our nation will surely pay the costs of the current budget cuts, which will hurt generations of families. The current fear and stress are likely to erupt into chaos, anger and possibly protest in the early days of SSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pending semester and elsewhere on the other 22 CSU campuses as the cutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; consequences sink in. Things will be bad enough this fall, but much deeper cuts are expected for the spring. New and transfer students will not be permitted to enroll this spring, and many lecturers are expected to disappear. The 2010â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2011 academic year looks even worse. The toll of these cuts upon the quality of life in California will be tremendous. If Californians want to regenerate our declining higher educational system, we have to invest in and pay for it. The bare bones are not yet visible. When they are, expect the wounded to justifiably cry out. It is a good time for SSU students and their parents, teachers, staff and California citizens to pull together to support each other and defend the threatened CSU system.

If Californians want to regenerate our declining higher education system, we have to invest in and pay for it.

under his directorship during the past decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest change is the internet expansion. When I started, noncorporate and independent media were mostly in print, but now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all online,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our website is huge, with multiple news sources and continuous article postings.â&#x20AC;? It also hosts a blog, the Daily Censored, which features daily news, as well as a validated process for universities to use in posting investigative reports. The yearly book continues to sell 10,000 copies, but the real growth has been on the web; the list serves about 25,000 people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more news here in one page than you see in the New York Times,â&#x20AC;? Phillips says proudly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge amount of stuff, all in one place.â&#x20AC;? Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to pass on the directorship, while still working toward expanding professor participation and classroom involvement in investigative work at universities all over the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m overworked and underpaid, but, yeah, it feels good passing it on,â&#x20AC;? Phillips laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really enjoyed doing the investigative work, training students in doing investigative work, and expanding Project Censored internationally by finding university professors that will adopt our program and validate the news.â&#x20AC;? Ben Frymer is currently working on founding the Center for the Study of Media in a Global Society at Sonoma State, which meshes with Project Censoredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He shadowed me for a year, but what direction the book takes is his call,â&#x20AC;? Phillips says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carl [Jensen] was good about not telling me what to do, and I will respect that with Ben as well. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring in different people because he has a strong network of friends and researchers all over the country.â&#x20AC;? Phillips stresses the need for everyone, not just students and faculty, to get involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a democracy without an informed public, and the corporate media is irrelevant to democracy and working people in the United States,â&#x20AC;? he pronounces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that lightly; I really believe that.â&#x20AC;? He suggests finding independent news sources and turning off the TV news. Clicking on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, he demonstrates how someone can spend a mere half an hour and get global news from 20 trustworthy independent news sources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You become an informed person and then inform other people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be grassroots, got to be from the bottom up. Independent news sources need support in a real way. Ultimately, city councils, boards of supervisors, states and governments need to support news through tax money to protect democracy.â&#x20AC;? Project Censored is not biased toward the left or right, Phillips emphasizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are critical of the people in power, and we are critical of media not covering what the powerful are doing.â&#x20AC;? The release date for the 2010 book edition is Sept. 30. For more info, go to www.projectcensored.org. Peter Phillips intends to teach for another decade or more.

Fresh Aire Fest speaker Judy Moskowitz stresses positive emotions in difficult circumstances By Juliane Poirier

8

n stressful periods, including these economically baleful times, the relationship between health and positive emotions is worth a closer study. At the recent memorial for outspoken journalist and poet Nancy Redwine, I listened with surprise to excerpts from her personal writings read aloud by friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; joyful, funny, f lip and poetic journal entries made not long before her death from cancer. She even wrote about gratitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I swing from hot and sweaty to chilled and shivering and back again over and over and over,â&#x20AC;? Nancy had written. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lately, I have a few things I could complain about. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here tonight. Tonight, I am filled with gratitude for the season.â&#x20AC;? A few things to complain about would be an understatement. I struggled to imagine myself in her shoes with anything close to that kind of grace. Nancy had terminal cancer, no job, no car, none of her nice dark hair left after chemotherapy, and her brother had recently died. Yet there she was, writing about what she appreciated about her life. The question that followed me home from her service was, how does anyone under the kind of stress maintain gratitude or any other positive emotion? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a set of skills you can learn,â&#x20AC;? assures Dr. Judy Moskowitz, stress and coping researcher at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at UCSF. Moskowitz heads a program of research on the relationship between positive emotions and health. She appears in two morning sessions, Aug. 29â&#x20AC;&#x201C;30, at the upcoming Napa Fresh Aire Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea of positive thinking has been a part of pop psychology for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Moskowitz explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I wanted to examine it from an empirical perspective.â&#x20AC;? She got this idea while part of a team studying the coping of those under severe stress, each week visiting study subjects and asking them a prescribed set of questions about their stress. But the subjects of the study challenged her research team by asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you ever ask us the good things that happened?â&#x20AC;? That may have surprised the researchers,

since their subjects were under severe emotional stress, caring for dying loved ones. But the team rose to the challenge, changed the protocol to include collecting positive data, and thereafter observed that those people who were able to pay attention to positive events during difficulties seemed to cope better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we hypothesized,â&#x20AC;? Moskowitz explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that it was this positive emotion that helped them to cope.â&#x20AC;? From that evolved the present study in which individuals under severe stress are taught a range of positive practices, from mindfulness exercises to gratitude journals, as a means of improving their ability to cope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a magical list and not all the skills are attractive to all people,â&#x20AC;? Moskowitz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a buffet. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to try them all.â&#x20AC;? On the skills, the gratitude journal is one that struck me most because that was what Nancy used to help her cope with terminal illness. According to Moskowitz, the gratitude entries are a daily exercise, and they do not have to be grand or extensive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be really simple,â&#x20AC;? Moskowitz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe just a good cup of coffee you had that day.â&#x20AC;? I am enjoying a good cup of coffee right now, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m grateful not only for the coffee, but for Nancyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deeply inspiring example to appreciate the small things and to practice gratitude even in the worst possible circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today I saw a variation on the Mystery Spot bumper sticker,â&#x20AC;? Nancy wrote in her last months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cut the thing in half and switch nouns, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a suggestion: Spot Mystery.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed that whenever Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on the lookout for mystery, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much harder to be consumed by stress.

People who are

able to pay attention to positive events during difficulties seem to cope better.

Judy Moskowitz will be among the presenters at the Fresh Aire Festival, Aug. 28â&#x20AC;&#x201C;30, in Napa. The festival is billed as an educational event focused on health and eco-consciousness. For more information, go to www.napafreshairefest.com. For those who cannot attend the festival, Moskowitz recommends two books which more than adequately summarize the science of happiness: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Positivity,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Barbara Fredrickson, and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The How of Happiness,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Sonja Lyubomirsky.

Bc^]Ta5^^S  Unfortunate truths for parents about YouTube, jam, Nutella andâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; oh, yeahâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;marijuana By Gretchen Giles

?

reparing your student for college entails so many handy lists just waiting to be crossed off, everything so tidy and organized that even the weepiest mother can wave goodbye through mascara-soaked lids knowing that her beloved has the requisite amount of shower shoes, extra-long sheets, antifungal cream and other glories of young adulthood. She can feel smugly confident that her progeny will thrive because most colleges require dorm dwellers to buy into that mythic feedbag, the Dining Plan. What Mom doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet know is that her student will rarely make it to the dining hall. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sleep through breakfast, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll forget lunch and no one remembers dinner until 11pm. Instead of the fresh salads and Korean food madeto-order that the dining hall might provide, her scholar is mostly eating ramen, bagels and other wheat products ably gummed by babies.

Of course, the 21st-century student can turn to YouTube to learn more about eating in the dorm room, which is evidently never done sober and which is where â&#x20AC;&#x153;Punk Ass Chef â&#x20AC;? comes ambling in. In four short minutes, PAC will show your student how to make a â&#x20AC;&#x153;stoner bangerâ&#x20AC;? by spearing a hotdog and resting it on an open gas flame while quickly mixing up a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sauceâ&#x20AC;? from yellow mustard and jam. Take a handful of those stale potato chips inevitably nearby, smash them and pour the sauce and charred dog on top, naturally prompting the question, just how stoned do you have to be? Jelly is a trope for PAC, his â&#x20AC;&#x153;sticky booty burgerâ&#x20AC;? featuring ground beef, peanut butter and the miracle of pectin-addled fruit. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to add garlic powder and salt. PAC fan FeedRosie reports, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made this for lunch today before class. At first I thought that this would be awful, but it was actually pretty fuckinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; delicious. The garlic and the salt were real important.â&#x20AC;? Real important. Weepy moms may want to stay away from

YouTube entirely, preferring not to know the plethora of stoner cooking how-toâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bursting from its unstemmed sides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cooking for Stonersâ&#x20AC;? begins with cinnamon Pop-Tarts and adds peanut butter, Nutella, chocolate syrup and a final dollop of peanut butter ice cream in case the lowly legume has been underrepresented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just smear it all on,â&#x20AC;? our teen chef slowly advises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to look good. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna taste good, I promise.â&#x20AC;? Shudder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stoner Foodâ&#x20AC;? demonstrates the â&#x20AC;&#x153;french fry pancake,â&#x20AC;? in which french fries are simply dumped onto a plate and covered in syrup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seasoned 2 Stonedâ&#x20AC;? rifles his buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinets to produce an appetizer of graham crackers slathered with cream cheese, Nutellaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nutella! who knew?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;peanut butter and jelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically,â&#x20AC;? he opines, looking unsteadily at the camera, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to spread shit you like on a graham cracker, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too dumb to be in school.â&#x20AC;? Take that advice as a mantra, Mom. Look forward to winter break and just turn off that â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Tube. THE BOHEMIAN

BF44C he word on the street is, Brix is back. Named for the scale used to measure grape sugar, the deďŹ nitive Napa restaurant had a decade-plus run both as tourist dazzler and happy-hour hangout for winery locals. Then Brix suffered a hiccup of revolving-door chefs and so-so reviews. When the Bohemian last visited (March 12, 2008), our reviewer lamented that a new chef and his exciting fusion fare had already come and gone before she could get there, leaving a â&#x20AC;&#x153;straightforward California bill of fare.â&#x20AC;? Shortly afterward, restaurateur David Gingrass and team were contracted to redesign the interior and the resto was rechristened â&#x20AC;&#x153;25° Brix,â&#x20AC;? the ripeness at which Napa vintners say they pick grapes. But reviews only got worse, ranging from the tepid to the savaging.

T

By at least 25 degrees, this house is back in order. Brix owners dropped the silly modiďŹ er, restored the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and recruited chef Anne Gingrass-Paik, an early light of fusion cuisine whose background spans Spago to San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Postrio and Hawthorne Lane. Gingrass-Paik was looking to merge into the slow lane of wine country, and this opportunity came at the right time. The menu is still generally contemporary Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with a renewed focus on fresh produce from the visibly harvested gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with subtle ďŹ&#x201A;ares like ďŹ&#x201A;ash-cooked fresh green beans in a light tempura batter, and hints of teriyaki in the light crust of a tender beef ďŹ let, drizzled with pesto. The majority of the 11-acre property is occupied by the Brix vineyard, which also underwent a change in vineyard management a few years back. The recently released 2005 Kelleher Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, available as one choice from the extensive and not badly priced by-the-glass list, demonstrates the results of this low-yielding Oakville vineyard. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of patio seating looking out onto the greenery, but for the next three months, Brix is taking it furtherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;taking it to the street, and across the globe.

6aZm^h7V`^c\8d

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brix Unpavedâ&#x20AC;? is a unique Thursday dinner series that allows Gingrass-Paik to get back to the roots of fusion cuisine. Three evening outdoor buffets celebrate â&#x20AC;&#x153;street foodâ&#x20AC;? from international cultures by transforming the space between the garden and patio into a food stall-lined street scene, illuminated with strings of light bulbs. This Thursday, Aug. 20, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mumbai Fare, Bollywood Flairâ&#x20AC;? means veggie and chickpea fritters, various dahls and curries coupled with fresh-made naan. In September, â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Night in Bangkokâ&#x20AC;? will feature noodle shops and a satay bar reminiscent of Thailand, with a Sicilian-themed evening of pasta and seafood rounding out October.

7djcin=jciZg

A comparatively economical introduction to the new old Brix, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brix Unpavedâ&#x20AC;? looks like fun as long as the weather holds upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;hey, for a night in Sicily, a little rain might add atmosphere.

When it does, downtown Napa is ready. Now is a nice time to visit one of the 19 or so spots to stand, swirl and sip wine in the revamped gateway to Napa Valley before the harvest crowds descend. Now that the hotel construction across the street from this tasting room is complete, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to park right in front. The interior has a low-budget style beďŹ tting the combined efforts of a couple of buddies who tank-surf at other area facilities and sell mainly retail out of the shop. Trahanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convivial Chuck Custudio says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to evoke the cellar: dark walls, empty barrels providing the faint aroma of old wood, and a thronelike dog bed fashioned out of barrel staves for Sadie, the requisite winery dog. Wines are shelved, with clever economy, in stacks of wood pallets. Much of their product is sourced from Suisin Valley, Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much less popular stepsister to the east. A few minutes from the suburbia seen from the I-80 freeway, Green Valley and Suisun Valley open up onto quiet, California ranch land. Here are a few coveted patches of old vine Zinfandel, and many more new plantings. Also interesting about Trahan and Olabisi wines is that they share remarkable discipline to style, whether from Napa or Suisun. Trahanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2007 Carneros Chardonnay ($30) skipped malolactic yet yields a hint of golden caramel with echoes of pure oak and notes of artichoke with lemon butter. The Olabisi 2007 Carneros Chardonnay ($40) also presents a more elemental version of Napa Chardonnay, lean with light crackles of acidity, juicy lemon and a tight ďŹ nish. A racy nose leapt from Olabisiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2005 Suisun Valley Syrah ($34), showcasing red plum jam and red cherry fruit thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ripe but bright, with toasted chicory. For all that, the ďŹ nish was unexpectedly ďŹ rm, but not rustic and drying. Similarly, Olabisiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2005 Petite Sirah ($45) showed tart plum, black cherry and prune fruit, ďŹ nishing with a brief astringency. The Trahan 2006 Suisun Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($30) was even fruitier than the raspberry-tinged 2006 Merlot ($35), with light furry tannin, cran-raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, with basically the same, narrow but not unpleasant ďŹ nish. These sound wines point to great results when appreciated with the right table fare. Or cellar them until the good times that are surely only a short time ahead, and pair with the steak and lobster that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll assuredly be having every night. Olabisi and Trahan Tasting Room, 974 Franklin St., Napa. Open daily, noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5:30pm. Tasting fee, $15. 707.257.7477.

3TVaTT^U?P]XR Attending and graduating from college during a recession is as bad as it seems By Daniel Hirsch, Jackie Johansen, Cassandra Landry and Denis Lindsay

With a Friend like Craig Last night, I woke up in a cold sweat. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had a dream about Craigslist. In it, I trolled unhappily through the job section. The plain text of blue links passed before my eyes. I could sell my eggs and win a $25 Starbucks gift card. I could take an experimental medication that would pay the rent but might cause kidney failure. In my dream, I hunched over the laptop with clammy palms and peered into the ominous, pale glow of the terrible future. I woke up, only to remember that I have no eggs to sell and that Craigslist haunts my waking life, too. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to start a career at one of the worst times in recent memory to be doing so. This week is past the midway point in

my summer internship here at the Bohemian. At the other side of that hump, I am faced with a big, gaping void. I graduated college this past June, which for me only means one thing: no matter how hard I beg, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let me come back in September. I went to a big, fancy, private school and got a big, fancy degree, but in this economy Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still more or less unemployable. The unemployment rate is somewhere around 9.7 percent, the highest in years. And what about the unemployment rate for troubled industries like my much-bedraggled journalism? What about for people with impractical degrees like my beloved BA in American studies? What does American studies even mean, anyway? Students and parents should be prepared for the post-graduation freak-out, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let me scare you. Though the terrible yapping voices of career doubt and economic uncertainty wake me up at night with their

fearsome screams, there are other calmer voices that lull me back to sleep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Day by day,â&#x20AC;? they say in soothing motivational-speaker cadence, or (with a slightly French accent) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man is condemned to be free.â&#x20AC;? I like to hum this last one to myself when I visit a friend in San Francisco who snagged a high-paying corporate gig right out of school and lives in a ridiculous SoMa apartment for successful young professionals replete with a climbing wall and other posh amenities. It would be fun to live somewhere like this and fun to have a hefty paycheck, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not jealous of my friend and her two-year contract, her endless hours of data entry and her Sunday afternoons spent at the office. With my uncertainty, I have freedom. Who knows what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing two years from now, but today Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working on figuring out tomorrow. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m cuddling up with Craig and diving into infinite possibilityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or so I tell myself.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;D.H. '+ THE BOHEMIAN

Over Before It Ends? I ran into an old high school friend the other day. She was the high school friend I meant to keep in touch with, but time and space and separate worlds make it impossible. Niceties were exchanged. Phone numbers were updated. Families were asked about. Tidbits of gossip were shared. But when the reminiscing ran its course, she diverted back to the question I was hoping to avoid: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, what are you doing these days?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well . . .â&#x20AC;? Where to start? How deep do I want to go? Shoot, how much time does she have? Can this even be sufficiently summed up in a well-packed two-sentence answer? I could tell her I just had a bad break-up with my boyfriend and am still trying to make sense of it. Is that too much information? No one likes a Denny Downer. I could tell her about the coffee company I work for making lattes. Maybe as a side note, but no. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk about school and make a little positive def lection on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to come in the future. Aha!

For Student Scholarships at SRJC!

For six decades more than $76 million from the Frank P. Doyle Trust provided scholarships to over 120,000 Santa Rosa Junior College students. With the temporary loss of the Doyle Scholarship in 2008, many students who deserve awards will not receive scholarships. Until the Doyle Scholarship is restored, the help of the Sonoma County community is badly needed. Join with members of our community to create SRJC scholarships.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went back to school recently and just have two more classes at the JC, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be at San Francisco State in the spring,â&#x20AC;? I say confidently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After taking time away and figuring out what I want, things are taking off. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m currently interning at the Bohemian, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to be in San Francisco again.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the city.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, especially as a journalism major. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much to write about and so much at your fingertips.â&#x20AC;? She looked thoughtful and paused before asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the CSUs not accepting spring semester admissions?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh. I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard,â&#x20AC;? I say feeling equal parts confused, pissed and embarrassed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah. Another cut for the California budget deficit.â&#x20AC;? Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that just great? Now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m finally able to transfer from SRJC to a CSU, it happens to be the semester they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow transfers. How does that happen? Some force must be conspiring against me. Maybe college just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for me. Maybe I am meant to lead a different life.

THE BOHEMIAN



While angry and frustrated, I find consolation knowing that in no way is my situation unique. Students everywhere are dealing with obstacles provided by the recession. Scholarships and grants are being eliminated. At SRJC, the trusty Doyle scholarship, virtually available to everyone, has been eliminated. Now transfers are not allowed to transfer. Even if college students are able to graduate in a timely manner, where are they going to get a job?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;D.L.

No More Christmas Presents I always knew that going to an outof-state university would mean that my family would be spending more cash. I was prepared for that. What I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared for was the unique guilt that comes with bettering oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind. Landing myself at Boston University, one of the pricier beacons of knowledge in the country, also landed my parents on the holy-shit-we-have-a-kid-in-college-nowweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re-broke list. Having two parents in the medical profession means that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for many scholarships or money from the university, so a big, fat bill with an embarrassingly large sum at the bottom unleashed a very subtle two-sided pingpong game in my head. Was I cheapening my familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality of life by studying pointless things like the philosophical meanings of life and French verb conjugations? Once it became clear that I would be majoring in journalism (â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dying field!â&#x20AC;?) and entering a profession in which I would probably never pay off my education, the guilt turned tangible. One thing I have excelled in, as a direct result of this recession-tainted shame, is the art of justification. Want to know all the ways in which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making the most of my dining plan? Have a seat, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a list. Am I benefiting from my classes? Hell yes, I am. Of course that book was worth $57; I read it four times I loved it so much! Proving that an education is really worth 50 grand a year is hard to do, especially when considering the oft-quoted adage that college is â&#x20AC;&#x153;as good as you make it,â&#x20AC;? no matter which college it is. There are good and bad professors everywhere, so why on earth did I find it necessary to pick the most expensive place to find them? This is a fair question that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really answer. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for me to mention that I am not attending my school to drain my parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bank accounts while laughing maliciously and that, of course, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely grateful that I even have the chance to blow 600 bucks on books Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just resell out of desperation for one-hundredth of the cost. But on the other hand, a little recognition that I fully understand the burden and feel the guilt like a sack of bricks wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt. Recession-style college is infinitely more humbling than the average, run-of-themill diploma dash, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not about to forget it.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;C.L.

A â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Uselessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Degree I am sitting in class early. The stout, proper, business professor is erasing his scribbles from the board. I watch him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like coming in early because everything on the board is so mysterious to me,â&#x20AC;? I say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is like another language.â&#x20AC;? He turns around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is it that you are studying?â&#x20AC;? he asks keenly. I straighten up and respond earnestly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Literature.â&#x20AC;? He pauses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you going to do with that? You know there are barely any jobs out there for that kind of thing.â&#x20AC;?

Proving that an education is really worth 50 grand a year is hard to do.

After four years of befriending Fitzgerald, Dreiser, James, Austen, Joyce, Dickenson, Stein and Proust, it is time to bring that knowledge into the real world and make some dough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bet everyone appreciates literature as much as I do,â&#x20AC;? I think to myself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be difficult at all.â&#x20AC;? I am at a party sitting next to someone I have never met. Proximity and the pressure of silence prompts us to talk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you a student?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes,â&#x20AC;? I answer proudly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am starting a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program in depth psychology.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is that?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is Jungian psychology, it is a way for me to deepen my connection with text and with the human experience by working with the unconscious, archetypes, mythology,â&#x20AC;? I say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, are you going to be a therapist?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, it is not a clinical program. It will open doors, help my writing. I am, as Joseph Campbell says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;following my blissâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and will see what happens.â&#x20AC;? He looks at me dubiously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So it is a useless degree?â&#x20AC;? I puff up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, not at all, in my opinion.â&#x20AC;? He looks around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weather is nice today.â&#x20AC;? Later, while sitting at the kitchen table, with a book in hand and my cross-eyed kitten Finnegan on my lap, I think about how I am happy living this life. I could work in a bank, be part of a company or trade stocks. I could make sure that money is never a problem. However, I would rather live humbly, have the time to dip a Madeleine into lime blossom tea and let the taste of it urge my own version of Combray to bubble up from the depths of my being.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;J.J.

Mounting college costs push more students into debt By Leilani Clark

C

hree years ago, I decided to attend graduate school with little forethought and lots of hope. The tuition for the private college where I enrolled was steep, but I brushed off the debt, figuring I would cross the repayment bridge when I got to it. I jokingly told people that I might be paying off my education until I was 60, but even as the words came out of my mouth, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem real. After graduation, I took a good hard look at my student-loan balance. It broke $50,000. I flashed back on book-making classes, glorified summer camp arts and crafts lessons to the tune of hundreds of dollars a unit. Doh! And now, the truth lay before me, thousands upon thousands of dollars owed in my name to the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or was it my lender or some private bank? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still not sure. I had reached that repayment bridge, and all I wanted to do was turn back and start all over again. I soon found out that I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Student-loan debt is just as bad as any other debt. Unfortunately, in my generation it has delayed decisions whether or not to start a family, buy a house, things like that,â&#x20AC;? says April Norhanian, author of College Is for Suckers, on the phone from Atlanta, Ga. Although Norhanian has a masters degree, her exposure to the marketing machine while working as a college admissions officer led to her belief that getting into debt for college is a bad decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing hype. They use fear. Colleges say if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a $70,000

education, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be flipping burgers for life,â&#x20AC;? Norhanian continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I worked at an art school, I saw people spending several thousands of dollars thinking they are going to be game designers, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still working at the local coffee shop, paying off those loans.â&#x20AC;? According to U.S. Department of Education statistics, few students can afford to pay for college without some form of education financing. Loan options range from government-regulated Stafford and Perkins loans (which tend to have lower interest rates), parent loans and private student loans. In the 2007â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;08 school year, 86.3 percent of undergraduates borrowed to pay for their education, and the average cumulative debt was $24,651. Post-grad and professional students borrow even more, with cumulative debt for a graduate degree typically ranging from $30,000 to $120,000. So what happens when all of these students, degrees stashed into sweaty palms, go out into the real world to search for a job and cannot find something that will allow them to pay off that debt in a timely manner? Forget about applying for bankruptcy. As a result of the 1998 Higher Education Act, student loans, even those not guaranteed by the federal government, are nondischargeable in bankruptcy. Unlike credit card and housing debt, student loans can follow borrowers to the grave. Since interest continues to accrue, even when loans are in forbearance, those in debt can end up owing double and even triple their original loan amounts. Loan companies like Sallie Mae have the power to garnish wages, tax returns, Social Security and disability income to get their payback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where someone with a bad mortgage is forced into bankruptcy and left with nothing, a distressed student borrower is forced into a predatory, governmentsanctioned trap where the only way out is to pay triple, quadruple or often far more than the original debt,â&#x20AC;? says Alan Collinge responding to questions via email. The author of The Student Loan Scam: The Most Oppressive Debt in U.S. Historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and How We Can Fight Back, Collinge founded StudentLoanJustice.org in 2005 with the purpose of restoring standard consumer protection to student loans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Student loans barely existed 30 years ago. Today, we owe $700 billion as a nation, one in three borrowers are being put in default, and decent citizens are being forced off the grid, out of the country and worse by the very system they were compelled to embrace from a young age,â&#x20AC;? Collinge argues. In his book, he advocates the formation of a grassroots movement that would pressure Congress into creating increased protections for borrowers. Collinge may see his goals realized sooner than later. Last month, President Obama introduced a plan that would end the role of private banks in the federal education lending systems, and while the legislation has not yet been passed, its approval would prevent certain parties from making a profit off college dreams. Jesse Jackson and Suze Orman are two influential Americans who have recently spoken out about the impending student-

loan crisis, but the key to averting personal student-loan disaster begins with looking at options as they stand right now. Too many people jump into the debt morass without first doing their research. Since the first two years of college tend to cover the core classes, students can attend community college to get those basics before transferring to more expensive universities. While this may not carry the prestige of attending a fancy school right off the bat, the money savings will be worth the tradeoff in the end. State schools rather than private universities are another option, since realistically the strength of a particular program is more important than the name of the school on the degree.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Colleges say if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a $70,000 education, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be flipping burgers for life.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Consider the source of the loan before signing the papers. The Student Loan Borrower Assistance project encourages students to exhaust their federal student grant and loan options before turning to private loans. Nongovernment loans tend to lack the more affordable, fixed rates and flexible repayment options provided by Stafford, Perkins and PLUS loans. Interest rates for private loans have risen as high as 28 percent in at least one publicly documented case. Students can also try to live frugally. Despite an afternoon at my undergraduate university watching a video that warned of spending loan money on cruises in the Bahamas, I treated my refund checks as petty cash. I bought records and clothing without thinking of the money as something I would have to pay back later. Borrowers must be informed beforehand just how much interest will be tacked on to that already hefty loan balance. April Norhanian argues that college may not necessarily be the best route for everyone, even though many parents and young adults believe that it is the only way to bridge the gap between living at home and adulthood. She encourages people to travel, work and really think about what they want to do with their lives before deciding on college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into debt and try to do it on your own just because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing to do. Research what you want to do. So many people are just kind of herded into college,â&#x20AC;? says Norhanian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can get that experience so many other ways. Travel. Take two years off. Do an au pair program. Figure out what you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. There is nothing wrong with not knowing what you want to do, but people rush into it without really thinking about it.â&#x20AC;?

Not only did she never leave the room except to buy sushi and Ferrero Rochers, which she popped like aspirin, but she was overwhelmingly homesick. Her solution was to make five-hour phone calls to her family and boyfriend every day using Skype, and screaming, crying or laughing in rapid-fire German. This left me bitching in the stairwell about â&#x20AC;&#x153;my spaceâ&#x20AC;? to my mother and developing a strong PTSD-like aversion to the German language.

Four ways to survive close quarters after leaving the nest By Cassandra Landry

C

he first week of college, freshmen are herded into multiple orientations, one of which most likely concerns â&#x20AC;&#x153;residence life.â&#x20AC;? Here, spirited administrators and RAs (resident advisers) counsel the masses to have room meetings right off the bat to establish the doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts of sharing a 5-by-5 living space that would barely pass for a single bedroom on any other astral plane. Hardly anyone has the meeting, of course, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awkward. No one wants to be the uptight roommate who has, God forbid, pet peeves, sanitary issues or a plain-old gag response when the goal is to make friends as fast as possible. Mark my words: have the meeting; it will save everyone time and stress. But if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen, here are a few rules to live by. The Sound of You Having Sex Is Disgusting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sexiling,â&#x20AC;? or being exiled from a room due to the sexual activities of a roommate, is possibly one of the most awkward situations to encounter when living with a stranger (even more so when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a friend). True, as a dorm resident, it can be hard to find privacy, but throwing a tie on the doorknob or simply going for it like wild monkeys while your roommate is a few feet away is not the answer. No, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not asleep, and yes, we are pissed. Courtesy Calls Freshman year I was

When is it really OK to haul someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laundry out of the dryer?

Laundry Wars When is it really OK to haul someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laundry out of the dryer? The one sole instance in which I did this, my bad timing left me pulling someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piles of ugly lingerie out right as she finally decided to come pick it up, 15 minutes after the timer had run out. But I stand by my decision: if the load has been done for more than 10 minutes, go for it. Washers and dryers in a dorm are precious and limited, so try to be on time! Walking in on someone like me emptying out the dryer (remember those tatty boxers Mom bought a few Christmases ago?) for all to see could be embarrassing. And please, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save up three huge laundry bags of clothing for one big washer-dryer marathon; taking up six washers at a time is a surefire way to tick off everyone in the building. Get Thee a Drain Strainer Some dormitories have suite bathrooms, where up to five people share a bathroom. If this is the case, it falls to its occupants to clean itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all of it. One thing that will increase the quality of shower life is a simple drain strainer. Case in point: freshman year, one of my roommates had gorgeous, long blonde hair. Every time she showered, she would push the strainer off to the side. An innocent enough action at the time, but a few months later when our shower was curiously clogged, it was I who could be found kneeling on the shower floor, pulling out a foot-and-a-half-long clump of wookie hair from the drain using a bobby pin. Not something I will ever forget, nor something I would wish on anyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;except maybe that blonde roommate. If disaster strikes, put down the bobby pin and just call maintenance. Dorm life can be character building, and usually brings out the ugly side of people. Done right, it can be survived and even enjoyed as long as boundaries are set. Because being sexiled once is enough for anyone. THE BOHEMIAN

acing Santa Rosa Junior Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy crosswalk connecting Emeritus Hall and the Doyle Library, a young man sits behind a fold-out plywood table beneath a banner that reads â&#x20AC;&#x153;kaislist.net.â&#x20AC;? All around him there are promoters handing out flyers, petitioners asking for signatures and creepy old men handing out Bibles like business cards for Jesus. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to turn a blind eye. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one thing that separates this young man from the others: what he has to offer students might actually help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to help students get their books cheaper,â&#x20AC;? he says. While studying to be an EMT and a paramedic, this student has found a way to help himself and other starving college students with their textbook needs. Kai likes to remain mysterious, offering no name other than Kai, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even his real name. Even his Facebook page is listed under â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kai S. List.â&#x20AC;? He will say, however, how he came to be so business-minded.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My parents came here from Vietnam with nothing,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father mowed lawns until he saved enough money for my mother to open a salon.â&#x20AC;? His parents were then able to pay off their mortgage and sustain a successful business. Kai took notes. He watched his parents start with nothing, find a niche and, with a lot of hard work, create something from start to finish. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different time with different circumstances, but at heart itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same story. Though Kai doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t divulge much else about his life, he would like to save his fellow students a buck. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until he found himself struggling to purchase a statistics book that he hit on the idea. He was low on funds, and Lord knows how the price of college textbooks will strip a poor college student of his cash. While many colleges have brought forth textbook buy, sell and trade programs, none was available exclusively for SRJC students. Finding no solutions for himself, Kai put his entrepreneurial mind to work, and with the help of computer technician Tomoc Field, kaislist.net was born. Founded in 2008, Kaislist allows SRJC students to buy, sell or trade books without a costly middleman. With a registered username and password, students can post books for sale or request books under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;TextChangeâ&#x20AC;? option or post a note about a book in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stickiesâ&#x20AC;? section. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stickiesâ&#x20AC;? do not confine themselves to postings about books. The occasional dirty joke and stories found in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stickiesâ&#x20AC;? remind that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like a cheap book and a naughty punch line. Kai may be the name and the face for the site, but by no means is Kaislist a solo effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kai came to me and was looking for someone to help out with the technological side,â&#x20AC;? Field says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sounded like a worthwhile project.â&#x20AC;? With Fieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tech support, the site has seen some significant advancement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Originally, the site was geared toward students seeing what we had available,â&#x20AC;? Field explains. All the books were physically traded through Kai and Field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now students can interact with each other. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not as interested in students interacting with us.â&#x20AC;? Kaislist boasts a network of about a thousand registered SRJC users. Due to promotional struggles, progress remains slow but steady. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About two to three people register every couple days,â&#x20AC;? Kai says. The interactive site thrives on user participation. These books canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love for people to tell their friends. Promotion is the hard thing right now,â&#x20AC;? Kai says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little exchange program.â&#x20AC;? The SRJC hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been much help in spreading the word. For Kai to set up and promote the site on campus, the campus charges him $75 per day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised how little the school supports me. I place all my f lyers around the school next to all the band f lyers, and mine are the only ones ripped down everyday,â&#x20AC;? Kai says. Numerous calls to the college failed to confirm or deny these claims. Both Kai and Field are adamant that they want to keep this service free. Though the site is not very profitable, they are able to stay barely afloat with advertising. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We basically want this to be a free service that helps people out,â&#x20AC;? Field says.

She went to school in MA; he went to school in CAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;hella wicked By Daniel Hirsch and Cassandra Landry Leaving the Promised Land â&#x20AC;&#x153;What the hell is wrong with you?â&#x20AC;? is usually the first question East Coasters sling when they discover Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a California native. How I could even consider leaving celebrity-filled hills and good Mexican food is a conundrum they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to wrap their minds around. However, working from the notion that the college years provide a perfect opportunity to live somewhere completely new, I traded drives to the beach for rides on the subway, and headed to school in Boston, Mass. Once there, I learned many strange things. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Freakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cold I was warned about the snow. My response was sanguine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seasons, schmeasons. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fine.â&#x20AC;? The first winter was the worst. I found myself staggering home from class, tears freezing on my cheeks, swearing under my breath and ruing the day I applied to college anywhere past the Fresno border. I pulled my peacoat, layered over about 15 sweaters, closer around me and vowed to invest in the biggest snow jacket I could find, fashion be damned. Most everywhere outside of California and Florida has seasonsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yes, trees lose all their leaves and stay that way for months! What a concept. Sole Truths I soon discovered the importance of footwear. Shoes that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

flip-flops or Chuckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are a must, and rain boots do not double as snow boots, unless slipping and face-planting on iced-over sidewalk sounds like a good time. NorCal! Outside of the Golden State, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Californiaâ&#x20AC;? equals â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hollywood.â&#x20AC;? Many otherwise intelligent East Coast folks naturally assume I live in L.A., surf everyday and am nextdoor neighbors with Matthew McConaughey. Mind the Gap I had never quite experienced brand-name clothing as a religion until I reached Massachusetts. Forget Puritanism, high-end Bay Staters find their deity in J. Crew pastels. Slang Culture People in the real world donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say â&#x20AC;&#x153;hella.â&#x20AC;? Outside of California, it sounds, well, hella stupid. Besides the fact that â&#x20AC;&#x153;heckaâ&#x20AC;? has probably just become cool in the Midwest, â&#x20AC;&#x153;hellaâ&#x20AC;? is sure to blindside a few peers and leave no question as to where the ditzy Californian stereotype comes from. I quickly learned to lose the term after I inadvertently dropped it into conversation. The other person stopped, grinned, and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Duuuude, sick wave broâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Like I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard that one before.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;C.L.

Twain Shanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Meet Raised in Western Massachusettsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; birthplace of basketball, hotbed of Puritanism and, most pertinently, within spitting distance of half a dozen small liberal arts collegesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I grew up with certain assumptions about how college students lived and interacted with each other. When I came to school in California, I realized I had not just crossed the country; I had crossed into another world. Californians are like a whole different species. Here are some sweeping generalizations and flimsy observations for your perverse entertainment. Weirdly Positive Unlike on the East Coast, whose denizens keep their enjoyment of things at a safe, critical distance and neatly nestled in layers of ironic detachment, Californians like stuff and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to admit it. When I came here, I was shocked by enthusiastic invitations like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Want to play disc golf, man? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be tight!â&#x20AC;? I was more familiar with something along the lines of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to play disc golf, er, whatever. You can come . . . I guess.â&#x20AC;? Living Foods? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve yet to completely figure out what qualifies as â&#x20AC;&#x153;California cuisine,â&#x20AC;? but chances are, whatever it is includes avocado and Sriracha hot sauce. Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Beach Every summer, my family went to Cape Cod, where for a whole week, all we did was sit by the beach and eagerly soak up the summer sun. After a long, bitter winter, nothing brings greater joy to a New Englander than the feel of hot sand against his toes. When visiting a friend in San Diego, I asked if we could go to the beach. A San Diegan all his life, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite have the same pull to the coast as I did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really like going to the beach,â&#x20AC;? he said like it was no big thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just watch some DVDs.â&#x20AC;? What the hell? Slang Culture I want to be able to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;hella.â&#x20AC;? I want to come back to the East with sun-bleached hair and surfer biceps, no longer the pasty Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;crazed teen who inserts â&#x20AC;&#x153;wickedâ&#x20AC;? where â&#x20AC;&#x153;hellaâ&#x20AC;? dwells on Californian tongues. But each time I try to casually slip that oh-so NorCal derivation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;hell of â&#x20AC;? into my speech, I sound like an imposter. Californians donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy it as homegrown; New Englanders think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m putting on airs. I suppose I must dig deeper into my geographic roots for the appropriate modifierâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to Eastern Europe. Yeah, that will be Ăźber tight.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;D.H.

Merry â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Musketeersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a Dumas-baiting delight By David Templeton

8

n the opening moments of Sebastopol Shakespeare Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rousing open-air presentation of The Three Musketeers, young Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Artagnan (another fine, spirited performance by Ben Stowe) asks his father how a particularly impressive sword-fighting move is accomplished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Misdirection, son,â&#x20AC;? explains Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Artagnanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get your opponent to lose his focus, then move like lightning.â&#x20AC;? This advice would appear to be the driving force behind this feisty 2006 adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas classic. Dazzling unsuspecting audiences with cleverly conceived swordplay and outrageous one-liners, the light-hearted script by comedy king Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Leading Ladies) employs its own masterful misdirection, skillfully drawing attention away from the fact that The Three Musketeers, as originally written, is frequently dense and boring. Not so with this production. By using Dumasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 165-year-old story as a trampoline, playwright Ludwig bounces from plot point to plot point, filling in the gaps with delightfully goof ball dialogue and frisky switcheroos. Wherever Dumasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; original story grows confusing and tiresome, Ludwig merely replaces it with clean, purist-baiting alternatives, inventing whole new characters. At times, the script seems less like an adaptation of The Three Musketeers and more of a giddy Cliff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Notesâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;fueled tribute to the kind of swashbuckling adventure novels that TTM has since inspired. Directed with fast-paced energy and an eye for spectacle by Ken Sonkin, The Three Musketeers features a terrific ensemble cast,

many of whom change character and costume faster than seems technically possible. The bones of the story are the same: young Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Artagnan ventures to Paris with hopes of becoming a musketeer, one of the kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal guardsmen. Within hours of arriving in the city, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Artagnan has made enemies of the power-hungry Cardinal Richelieu (a growling, imposing Eric Burke), his one-eyed right-hand man Rochefort (Chad Yarish), the evil-to-the-bone professional temptress Milady de Winter (Bronwen Shears) and the three musketeers themselves: Athos (all-kinds-ofdashing Keith Baker), Porthos (exuberantly on-target Dan Saski) and Aramis (sweetly eccentric Derek Fischer). After winning over the musketeers, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the inseparables,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Artagnan falls in love with the queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handmaiden, Constance (a radiant Allison Marcom), and becomes entangled in a plot by Richelieu to discredit the queen (Laura Downing-Lee) and wrest power from the king (John Shillington). To these plot points, Ludwig has added Sabine (Emily Brown), Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Artagnanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tomboyish, cross-dressing sister, a change that takes the story down an entirely untraveled alley. In particular, the ultimate fate of Milady, played with smoldering nastiness by Shears, is agreeably satisfying, though quite different from other versions. The reliably chameleon-like Dodds Delzell lends his shape-shifting talents to a number of roles, including the musketeersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; long-suffering captain, the Monsieur de Treville, while other small parts are filled by Shillington, DowningLee, and Marcom. The real pleasure of this production, presented outdoors in Ives Park, is the heightened sense of glee with which the cast and crew attack the show. Played with the knowing melodrama of a Penny Dreadful, the breakneck pace of an oldfashioned movie serial and the broad comic strokes of a Saturday-morning cartoon, this is the kind of play that makes kids fall in love with the stage and reminds their parents and grandparents how much fun live theater can be. Amid all of the outlandish spectacle and cleverness, there is somehow still space for a few authentically moving moments, one of whichâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the demise of a major characterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is played with heartbreaking sincerity. With a smashing two-story set by Benicia Martinez and lavish costumes by Skipper Skeoch, this show is like watching a skirmish between the visual and the verbal, every new piece of feathered and frocked eye candy warring with some new turn of speech or off beat remark from the cast. In the end, what many will remember from this Musketeers is the inventively choreographed swordplay. Again, those who revere Dumasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; original text are likely to find offense in the cavalier deconstruction being offered up in Ives Park, but for all others, this is the summer show to see, a big-hearted, action-packed confection, luscious and tasty from the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;all for oneâ&#x20AC;? to the last â&#x20AC;&#x153;one for all.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Three Musketeersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Aug. 30 at Ives Park, Willow Street and Jewell Avenue, Sebastopol. 7pm. $18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$23; Thursdays, pay what you will.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Inglourious Basterdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; takes it to the Hitler man By Richard von Busack

C

hat Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what a showman! Seems like every week thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new YouTube remix of Bruno Ganz having a Holstein over whatever. Quentin Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no-doubt Oscar-winning Holocaust film Inglourious Basterds is almost as deliriously entertaining as a remixed Hitler tantrum. This new film drips with movie love, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a cheatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the blazing finale is one of the ultimate Mad magazine â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scenes Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d Like to See.â&#x20AC;? The long, rich film showcases Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of humor more than his appreciation for violence. The whole thing is held together by one boundless, if undifferentiated, appetite for paraphrasing movies. Inglourious Basterds is the should-havebeen true story of Operation Kino, the plot to destroy the Hitler gang through their own love for cinema. Participants in the top-secret plot, witting or otherwise, include sweetheart of the Reich Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger, never better), a mysterious Parisian movie-theater owner known as Emanuelle Mimieux but born Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) and a drawling British film critic turned commando, Lt. Archie Hicox (Michael Fassbender), the author of Twenty-Four Frame Da Vinci, a study of G. W. Pabst. Opposing these flawed heroes is the smilingserpent villain Christoph Waltz as Hans â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Jew Hunterâ&#x20AC;? Landa. Waltzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrilling loathsomeness is as pure as something you might see in a silent film.

The loose cannons knocking around this picture, turning up to cause mayhem during its five separate chapters, are the Basterds themselves. Brad Pittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tennessee ridge-runner Lt. Aldo Raine leads a band of homicidal Jewish guerrillas. Each one is indebted to him for 100 Nazi scalps. More than ever, Tarantino shows a penchant for conversation over violence, for delicious anticipation rather than delivery. Inglorious Basterds is a genuine art movie, right down to its subtitles and crimson and gold surfaces. Nothing is as rapt here as Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swoon over a beautiful girl on a ladder, leaning on a block-wide, blazing theater marquee, polishing the letters spelling out the name of Henri-Georges Clouzot. Le Corbeau is showing during its first run. The lady is distracted from her marquee work by the attention of a persistent, babyfaced German officer, Fredrick Zoller (Daniel BrĂźhl). Tentative romance and repulsion between the theater owner and the sniper continue to the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. Tarantino gloms on to all of our movie fantasies of the Satanic ornateness of the Third Reich. The evil is beautifully saturated and looks an inch thick. Even a standard poodle, belonging to Goebbelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; girlfriend, looks like it ought to be tried at Nuremberg. As the Basterds continue their outrages, Hitler foams in his lair, vowing reprisals and revenge: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nein! Nein! I will hang them by their heels from the Eiffel Tower!â&#x20AC;? Here in cinema form is an essay about Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mutual fascination with and distaste for the war film. And even if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a voracious film watcher, he can tell the difference between the passionate but lowbudget Samuel Fuller dramas of universal dehumanization and the boring-ass patriotic gore-opera represented by Zollerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pride, with its cascades of bullet shells and a beatific youthful sniper in his church tower. Wonder what Tarantino thinks of Michael Bay? In its depictions of the Naziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s near-orgasmic reaction to the premiere of Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pride, this movie gives you a good guess. Moreover, there seems to be some commentary here, disguised as strawberryjam-covered strudel. The revival of World War II in movies and documentaries in the mid-1990s coincided with the Hitlerizing of Saddamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one Good War deserves another. When Bush ginned up the war on terror, his opponents were slurred as Chamberlainian sissies, sleepwalking toward a new Munich. Pumping up and satirizing the war movies that fueled so many daydreams of righteousnessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is subversiveness itself. Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambiguity keeps this from being complete idiot-fodder. When the insane Raine works on his grisly signatureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; a bit of body manipulation with a Bowie knifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shudder discernible in the way Tarantino watches it. Remember the camera that turned away from the ear-cutting in Reservoir Dogs? The blank satisfied look Pittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raine fills the screen in a final shot; Tarantinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaze isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as dispassionate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to get the high ground and take the low road at the same time, but Tarantino does it here. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Inglourious Basterdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens at select North Bay theaters on Friday, Aug. 21.

Three Wives Club What do a left-leaning country rocker, a poet turned chiropractor, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Japanese Joni Mitchellâ&#x20AC;? and the founder of one the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first rock music magazines have to do with each other? Well, they make up a unique kind of family. Paul Williams was just 17 in 1966 when he put out the first issue of Crawdaddy!, a pioneer publication committed to rock journalism. Besides being one of the first rock critics in America, a poet and an early Philip K. Dick enthusiast, Williams has also had a full love lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he married three times. First, there was singer-song writer Sachiko Kanenobu, a leading figure in Japanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s folk boom, whose 1972 album Misora became a Japanese sleeper hit in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s. Then came Donna Grace Noyes, a one-time poet and actor who now practices a unique brand of Korean-inspired chiropractics in Sonoma. Cindy Lee Berryhill Williams is a country music songstress with politically liberal ditties like â&#x20AC;&#x153;When did Jesus Become a Republican?â&#x20AC;? and is Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; current wife. Due to Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; early onset of Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, these three distinguished and distinct women will perform a benefit concert for the husband they evidently all still love. We Three Wives perform on Sunday, Aug. 23, at a private residence.

Fool the Eye For many people, works of visual art fall into two categories: those that look like stuff and those that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Ceramicist Richard Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work falls solidly in the former. Shaw makes sculptures that

very much look like stuff, so to speak. In fact, they belong to the tradition of trompe lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeil, which literally means â&#x20AC;&#x153;fool the eyeâ&#x20AC;? in French. Though they appear to be assemblages of everyday material and found objects, his work is actually meticulously crafted entirely out of porcelain. They look exactly like household objects, albeit strangely arranged and grouped. He has sculpted a wedding cake bisected by an ocean liner, an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sketchbook beside a skull and a series of humanoids that appear to be constructed from pencils and junk-drawer refuse. Shaw will be discussing his work as part of KQEDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spark! Arts Lecture Seriesâ&#x20AC;? on Thursday, Aug. 20, with a wine and cheese reception at di Rosa Preserve. 5200 Carneros Hwy., Napa. 6:30pm. Free with reservation. www.dirosaart.org.

Hip to Be Square Rather than gather rust when the trains stopped coming, Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad Square has sprouted numerous restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and performance spaces. To celebrate, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the Taste of Railroad Square, a weekend festival of gourmet food and winetasting offered by area restaurants and businesses with performances by eclectic accordionist Amber Lee and the Anomalies, professional magician Frank Balzerak and the Dixie-ragtime ensemble TRAD JASS. All proceeds go to maintaining the cultural bastion of the square, the Sixth Street Playhouse. Lick the brick on Saturday, Aug. 22, between Fourth and Wilson streets, Santa Rosa. Noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;4pm. $40. www.tasteofrailroadsquare.org.

Push â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Squeeze Accordions ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just for your eccentric Romanian uncleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it seems like everybody from the Decembrists to Styx have picked up the squeezebox and are letting loose. As it has for so many years, the Cotati Accordion Festival proves the wide appeal of the bellow-driven folk instrument with joyful enthusiasm and a diverse lineup. The all-female Polkanomics mix up traditional polkas with pop rock hits of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s. Ramon Trujillo leads a six-part mariachi band with traditional tunes from Mexico. Gator Beat perform uptempo bayou beats with their zydeco jams. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Gaucho, known to fill hip San Francisco bars, rock a unique blend of klezmer, swing and so-called Gypsy jazz. Tango, Italian folk classics and a mysterious fellow named the Great Morgoni all squeeze and push them keys Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Aug. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;23, at La Plaza Park. Old Redwood Highway, Cotati. 9:30amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;8pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.664.0444.

Boom Boom If he were alive today, iconic bluesman John Lee Hooker would be 102. If he were still playing his Delta blues guitar and singing classics like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the Moodâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crawlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; King Snakeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boom,â&#x20AC;? he might still be able to rock you into sweet, soulful submission, as he had for the better part of a century. While Hooker passed on to blues heaven in 2001, his music still resounds like his deep gravelly voice always used to. To continue on with his legacy and promote arts education for youth, Hooker family members started the John Lee Hooker Foundation, giving out grants to nonprofits in need. The Foundation hosts a night of classic blues in celebration of Hookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 102nd birthday. Hookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coast to Coast Blues Band, featuring Jimmy Dillon, Ollan Christopher and Gail Muldrow as well as Hookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own children Zakiya and Archie Hooker will smoke the stage on Saturday, Aug. 22, at the 142 Throckmorton Theater. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 6:45pm VIP reception, show starts at 8pm. $45â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $100. 415.383.9600.

Diana Krallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy space is all about family ike many artists, Diana Krall views her albums as capturing a snapshot in time. And with her latest CD, Quiet Nights, the image she sees is picture perfect. On a musical and creative level, Krall calls the Quiet Nights project the greatest experience sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had in the studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I was in really good shape, because I came straight off of the road after touring really quite hard through Europe all summer,â&#x20AC;? Krall said in a recent phone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my God, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m touring all summer and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to go right into the studio without a break,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But in reality, not having a break, you have that kind of relaxed exhaustion that makes an album sound good.â&#x20AC;? To Krall, who appears on Aug. 25 at the Wells Fargo Center, the album reďŹ&#x201A;ects her life in a larger sense, which is as happy and full as it has ever been. The reason for her contentment is the way her life has changed since early this decade when she began dating fellow musician Elvis Costello, who appears with his bluegrass outďŹ t the Sugarcanes at the Wells Fargo on Aug. 21. The two married in December 2003, and in 2006 Krall, now 44, gave birth to twin sons, Dexter and Frank. Family life is what has her so happy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m laughing all the time,â&#x20AC;? Krall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When my kids are around, you lighten up pretty quick. I have my musical family around me now, but I like having my kids. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just little lights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always wanted to be a mom,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a great mom and a great dad. And part of why I do music is because of my childhood and the environment that I had. I had Marx Brothers ďŹ lms and Jack Bennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ lms and old movies playing and Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington being played and early American dance bands, Bing Crosby and Connee Boswell and this whole vast closet of sheet music. So that was pretty cool.â&#x20AC;? Krall is also enjoying life on the road these days. Her U.S. tour features a mix of dates Krall performing with either an orchestra or in a quartet format; the Wells Fargo date is with the quartet. Especially in that format, she is free to play songs from across her large catalogue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice to have a place in your career where you feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just going out and playing and not just going out to promote an album,â&#x20AC;? Krall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really enjoying my very vast repertoire right now.â&#x20AC;? Diana Krall and her quartet appear on Tuesday, Aug. 25, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $39.50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$79.50. 8pm. 707.546.3600.

Can Cavity put Santa Rosa back on the hip-hop map?

+ TRACK FIGHTER + SUGAR RED DRIVE

avity is a 27-year-old rapper from Santa Rosa whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just lost his job (outsourced overseas) and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s using his free time to hit the studio and realize a childhood dream. Growing up, Cavity ingested cassettes by Rakim, N.W.A. and Mac Dre, but none had quite the impact as Forever Hustlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, by Ray Luv. Still the bestknown rap album from Santa Rosa, it changed Cavityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective about what could be accomplished in a city considered too white and too safe for serious hiphop, and the earnest rapper still talks about how his hometown can be taken seriously once more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a major artist to open the door for us again, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause I believe the door is closed and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locked right now,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we measure up against Oakland or San Francisco, Richmond or other cities, they lookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at us as if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re from cowtown. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the country. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re irrelevant. Lots of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even consider us the Bay to begin with.â&#x20AC;? Never mind that Sonoma County has always been a massively supportive region for hip-hop artists from the Bay Area. This is a place where Andre Nickatina can play every month, where two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of Super Hyphy shows almost always sold out when no other city in the Bay Area was consistently supporting live hiphop, and yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a place where our homegrown rap artists are underrepresented in an all-too-common form of suburban hypermetropia. Cavity aims to ďŹ&#x201A;ip the script back to Santa Rosa, the way Ray Luv did, with his upcoming album If the Lord Say the Same. If â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Ride,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nutronâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m with Itâ&#x20AC;? are any indicators, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it with bona ďŹ de party anthemsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; although Cavity sets down the PatrĂłn for four personal minutes with the honest, emotional â&#x20AC;&#x153;In My Life.â&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kinda let my soul bleed, you know what I mean?â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frustration. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what that song is.â&#x20AC;?) This weekend, Cavity plays a huge show in Santa Rosa with E-40, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ambassador of the Bayâ&#x20AC;? who brought the hyphy craze to the rest of the country before its quick demise. Bay Area hip-hop has proven its versatility in the past; Cavity sees no reason it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rise again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hip-hop moves with new sound,â&#x20AC;? he assures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bay is very creative. Trendsetters. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just looking for that new sound.â&#x20AC;? Cavity plays with E-40, the Jacka, Ant D.O.G., Cellski, Fed-X and others on Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Armory, 1500 Armory Drive, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$40. 510.632.7708.

2;0BB82B Willie Nelson returns to standards, while dancehall star Sean Paul stays true to his streets.

CWT ?PcaX^cb

Willie Nelson and Sean Paul honor their respective nations By David Sason

C

hese days, superstar guest albums and cover records mean big business. Just look at Santanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last few releases or Rod Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hugely successful Great American Songbook series. Some might think progressive country music legend Willie Nelson is just joining the fold with next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of American Classic, but the redhead is anything but a stranger to the concept. Nelson all but invented the trend, most notably with his influential 1978 classic Stardust, an initially discouraged collection of popular standards that became one of his most successful albums ever. While touted as an unofficial sequel to the Booker T. Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;produced Stardust, American Classic is more than anything a jazz album, even being released under the Blue Note Records moniker. From the opener â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nearness of You,â&#x20AC;? popularized by Glenn Miller in 1938, Nelson fronts a gifted jazz group that includes lyrical pianist Joe Sample, and proves a charmingly limited vocalist Ă  la late-era Billie Holiday. But Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice is not grainy, remaining as clear, assured and unwavering despite his 76 years and his love for smoking weed. Due to uniform tempo and instrumentation, the first half of the album is sadly lackluster, featuring limp renditions of the crooners

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fly Me to the Moonâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Misbehavinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? two songs that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been beaten over the head with too much over the years. This problem alone makes American Classic an unworthy successor to Stardust, which at the time was a novel idea. American Classic doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heat up until the surprisingly charming Norah Jones duet â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baby, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cold Outside,â&#x20AC;? which far outshines the Rod Stewart and Dolly Parton version from a few years back. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playful and sexy (despite the obvious May-December romance implications), and you can actually hear Nelson smiling throughout. Their two voicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; odd yet compelling chemistry makes further collaboration a good idea. A sultry â&#x20AC;&#x153;Angel Eyesâ&#x20AC;? keeps the excellence going, truly sounding like a lost Stardust outtake, and leads into a delicious â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since I Fell for You,â&#x20AC;? featuring Jim Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bluesy organ and fantastic harmonica punctuating each vocal line, courtesy of longtime Nelson player Mickey Raphael. A jazzy update of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Always on My Mindâ&#x20AC;? ends the record strongly with a wink and a subtle suggestion that the perennial road warrior is still fucking up in the same ways. Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sincerity and palpable reverence for the craft of others has always kept his stylistic experiments free of gimmickry, from the reggae album Countryman to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Two Men with the Blues with Wynton Marsalis. But here his choice of songs and the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inundation with the idea ultimately diminish the recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential for enjoyment as a whole.

nother guy who is no stranger to marijuana is Jamaican dancehall superstar Sean Paul, who returns this week with Imperial Blaze, his follow-up to 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massively successful Trinity. While his last album comprised nonstop aggressive club bangers, Sean Paul finally branches out across the 20 tracks, making Blaze his most eclectic so far. Case in point is the ballad â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pepperpot,â&#x20AC;? which opens with shimmering acoustic guitar chords and features his sweetest singing to date. The unrequited love in the lyrics is new ground for Sean Paul, a sign of maturation that reappears in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Straight from the Heart,â&#x20AC;? a tribute to his mother. This hip-hop clichĂŠ (well done here in a traditional rock-steady reggae beat) is no surprise. Throughout the long and storied partnership of reggae and American rap (next up in the highly anticipated Nas and Damian â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junior Gongâ&#x20AC;? Marley collaborative album), Sean Paul has merged these forms more than anyone, to the point of being completely accepted by hip-hop radio. And despite his patriotic decision to have Jamaican dancehall producers helm the album, the songs utilize too many overused American production conventions, including the familiar throbbing, blaring keyboard accompaniment on hot dance track â&#x20AC;&#x153;Press It Upâ&#x20AC;? and the much-maligned Auto-Tune on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bruk Out.â&#x20AC;? While the first single â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Fineâ&#x20AC;? is not nearly as immediately catchy as past hits â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get Busyâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Temperature,â&#x20AC;? Sean Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wide appeal and lucid patois delivery make him a sure thing commercially. Time will tell if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to blaze an artistic trail as well.

Sausalito and Petaluma launch new film fests nyone who just blew $10 on Harry Potter noticed that movie ticket prices have risen yet again. Add a bag of overly salty popcorn, maybe an Icee and a trove of tropical Skittles to the magical experience, and all of a sudden itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no gas money for this week. Thankfully, there are a few loopholes for those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough of the action, drama and sheer thrill of the movie world: North Bay film fests. For the price of one big-budget Hollywood wallet-drainer, movie buffs can catch a handful of worthwhile up-and-coming independent films as well as the chance to chat with some of the directors. Aug. 21 welcomes the first annual Sausalito Film Festival, a screening of a whopping 30 films in three days, featuring full-length films, shorts, animation and documentaries from all over the globe. The films have been divided into five separate categories from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of Rebellionâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Advanced Global Citizenshipâ&#x20AC;? (as with Milking the Rhino, above) to â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Human Conditionâ&#x20AC;? in an effort to capture the intellectual and provocative makeup of Sausalito. Films include the anticipated No Impact Man, which follows a New York family as they attempt to become entirely independent from processed products and consumerism and live a 100 percent sustainable life, and Lean on Me, a tribute to director John Alvidsen featuring Morgan Freeman. Farther north on Highway 101, directors from Poland, Germany, Australia, Canada and the States are making the trek to the Mystic Theatre for the first annual Petaluma Film Fest, one day of award-winning short film bliss. The night inaugurates the 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10 season of the Petaluma Film Alliance, with 32 film events happening throughout the fall and a weekly Cinema Series starting in September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided to begin with a showcase of short films because it offers a little something for everyone in a single evening,â&#x20AC;? says Michael Traina, SRJC film and media studies instructor and the brains behind the operation. To make it an even better deal, several downtown Petaluma restaurants are offering â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dine and Donateâ&#x20AC;? specials for those attending the festival. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot better than an overpriced bag of greasy popcornâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even with Skittlesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? The Sausalito Film Festival is slated for Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday, Aug. 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;23, at the Cavallo Point Lodge, 601 Murray Circle, Fort Baker, Sausalito. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$12 general admission; signature events, $50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$150. 415.887.9506. The Petaluma Film Fest screens on Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Mystic Theatre, 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. Doors open at 6:30pm and films begin at 7:30pm. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.765.2121.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rocky Horrorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proves that camp has no age ver since The Rocky Horror Picture Show made the transition from the stage to the silver screen in 1975â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a resounding orgasmic whoop from audiences all over the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the tale of a raucous group of â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweet transvestitesâ&#x20AC;? from Transylvania has been a cult favorite. Fans have been singing along with a wide-eyed Susan Sarandon and fantastically salacious Tim Curry for years, with annual viewings usually taking place around Halloween. Thus, it comes as a pleasant surprise that after a 10-year hiatus, Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Phoenix Theater has decided itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a summer romp with Dr. Frank-n-Furter and crew. The screening will be, per tradition, accompanied by Bay Area troupe Barely Legal, Rocky Horror Picture Show aficionados who have been presenting the show since 1995. Phoenix promoter Jim Agius says the enthusiasm that comes with the performances is the best part of live showings of the film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having only seen RHPS live once, my favorite part of the experience was how perfectly timed and wonderfully inappropriate some of the live audience shouts were,â&#x20AC;? he says. Anyone who has ever attended a live performance of the revue can attest to the timing and raunchy dedication to the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plot by the audience; many fans choose to either dress up as a character or just dress as provocatively as possible. Written by Richard Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, our story begins when young lovers Janet and Brad are forced to seek refuge in an eerie castle after their car breaks down. They are met by Dr. Frank-n-Furter and his companions, and naturally, a handful of risquĂŠ shenanigans follow. The show, originally produced in London in 1973, already had a reputation for being a rambunctious crowd-pleaser by the time it reached American shores in 1974. Prepare to throw toast at the screen on Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 Washington Ave., Petaluma. Preshow at 11:30pm, and show begins at 11:59pm. Tickets are $10; bags of audience participation props are $2. 707.762.3565. Cassandra Landry

Is there nothing that Ben Vereen canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle with talent and grace? reparing to interview Ben Vereen is almost as much fun as actually speaking to the famous song and dance man, the one who epitomized choreographer Bob Fosseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s male muse, who brought Kunte Kinteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson Chicken George to life in Roots, who swung with Sammy and the rest of the Pack in Las Vegas, who helped break Broadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s racial barrier in Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar and who considers himself a godfather to the rap artist Usher. Through the still-miraculous miracle of YouTube, Vereenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triumphs as a dancer remain vibrant, a recently screened clip from his first Tony Award turn in Pippin last week prompting another viewer to gush, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ben owns this!â&#x20AC;? Ben owns a lot, and none of it is mere stuff. Now nearing 63, Vereen remains a multigifted performer, as comfortable doing a sharp turn with a hat pushed seductively down over one eye as he is encouraging young people to grab their dreams and as he is extolling the virtues of the raw-food lifestyle or counseling diabetics on living, as he does, with the disease. Reached in New York where he is working with a biographer on a new book, Vereen is happy and relaxed, classical music booming behind him in the apartment. He appears Aug. 22 at the Lincoln Theater in what is billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Intimate Evening with Ben Vereen.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get to share with the people not only my show business life, but the journey Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken,â&#x20AC;? he explains in his familiar purr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in rooms with kings and queen and emperors and presidents. I went to China when Nixon broke down the wall.â&#x20AC;? Expect a cabaret show that mixes a bit of dance with some Broadway song and plenty of stories, including some discussion of the lifethreatening disease that Vereen battles with wisdom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on insulin todayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just for today,â&#x20AC;? he says with the cadence of a 12-stepper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My physician is trying to wean me off of insulin. The human ego is such a tripâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;oh no, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not me.â&#x20AC;? He chuckles before adopting an urgent tone meant for the masses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please go to your physician and join the land of the living.â&#x20AC;? Because his autobiography is in the works, Vereen keeps close to the vest many personal details about the spectacular ups and downs of his life. Toward other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives, however, he is immensely gracious. As the phone conversation ends, Ben Vereen says to the stranger interviewing him across coasts at 8pm his time, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please give my love to your family.â&#x20AC;? Consider it done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Intimate Evening with Ben Vereenâ&#x20AC;? is slated for Saturday, Aug. 22, at 8pm. Lincoln Theater, 100 California Drive, Yountville. $29â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$59; veterans may qualify for free admission. 707.944.1300. Gretchen Giles
