I was thrilled to open this issue and see Town Cats listed. I adopted two sweet cats from Town Cats and became a volunteer because I believe in the work that they are doing. Town Cats is a phenomenal organization, all volunteers, surviving on a shoestring budget. Many thanks! Patricia Abreu San Jose

Simple Majority Thank you for your article on the debate over a California state constitutional convention (â&#x20AC;&#x153;State of Emergency,â&#x20AC;? MetroNews, Sept. 23). Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem is not complicated. Over the last 30 years, the share of corporate income paid in state taxes has declined by almost 50 percent (www.cbp.org). Corporations

have used the minority-rule, twothirds provision in California to slash their taxes and starve our state services, schools, universities, health care, parks and everything else that makes up our quality of life. At the pinnacle of our budget crisis earlier this year, corporations used it, not to help solve the deďŹ cit, but to exacerbate it. They manipulated the legislative stalemate to secure themselves an additional $2.5

billion a year tax break. George Lakoff has proposed a simple ballot measure that will go further to solve Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem than a convention will. It is one sentence: â&#x20AC;&#x153;All budgetary and revenue issues shall be decided by a majority vote in both houses of the legislature.â&#x20AC;? Imagine that! Either we as a democratic society begin to assert our rightful authority over these corporations, or they will completely take us over. The

What will accelerate the establishment of locally based food systems (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back to the Garden,â&#x20AC;? Cover Story, Sept. 30), is for cities to regard urban farming as an economic engine and encourage entrepreneurial farmers to set up businesses within their borders. You can

In the Bag You mischaracterized routingindustry opposition as â&#x20AC;&#x153;backing off â&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paper or Plastic?,â&#x20AC;? Fly, Sept. 23). By voting 9-1 for a plastic-bag ban, Councilmember Sam Liccardo, Mayor Chuck Reed and their colleagues charged to the front of a nationwide movement. The environmental review they ordered is actually required by law and standard practice before ďŹ nal adoption of an ordinance, and cities that skipped it have been sued by affiliates of the plastic-bag industry. It is actually because of Liccardo and Reedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s careful research and wisdom that San Jose will implement a bag ban successfully over immense political pressure from a very powerful lobby. All San Jose residents should be proud of them. Felicia Madsen San Jose

What’s in a Name?

Business and Management

AD THIS WEEK’S COLUMN occupied the inside back cover of Mad magazine, the author would have opened with “Here we go again with another ridiculous review of an Arcadia Publishing photo book.” Or something along those lines. Instead, he will state upfront that yet one more San Jose–related book from Arcadia’s Images of America series, simply titled, Silicon Valley, has been unleashed upon the public. If you’re out of the loop, Arcadia publishes those now-ubiquitous black-and-white photo books, usually about 120–130 pages, chronicling the stories and histories of certain local niches. Go to any bookstore, and you’ll see a shelf or display of them somewhere in the store. Locally speaking, we’ve already seen titles like San Jose’s Historic Downtown and Railroads of Los Gatos and Early Cupertino, as well as volumes covering complete cities like Campbell, Milpitas, Alviso, Morgan Hill, La Honda, Pleasanton, San Carlos, ad infinitum. Often they are hyperfocused, like Cemeteries of Santa Clara. Well, we have another one, called Silicon Valley, by Sam Shueh. It basically comes across like unused outtakes from about 10 previous Arcadia books, all spliced together in the studio somewhere. The description on the back of the book describes Santa Clara Valley as if the two names are interchangeable. So, before we go any further, we must declare a stipulation or a pet peeve, if you will: “Silicon Valley” is not necessarily one and the same thing as “Santa Clara Valley.” The two terms shouldn’t be automatically interchangeable. Just because an event took place in Cupertino doesn’t mean the event happened in “Silicon Valley.” Just because photos of Alum Rock Park, Japantown, the Great Mall or 19th-century farmworkers in Evergreen contain subjects geographically located in Santa Clara County doesn’t automatically mean they have anything whatsoever to do with the history of “Silicon Valley.” Much of the book is like this, and Shueh arbitrarily divides it into six regional chapters, one of which is called “East Gateway of Silicon Valley,” featuring photos of Eastridge, the Great Mall and Milpitas plus historic shots of Chinese farmworkers, circa 1920, and a corner market on East Capitol Road, circa 1954. Another chapter, titled “Silicon Valley Events,” includes a 1951 photo of a football match between Santa Clara University and UCLA, another of a dinner at Villa Montalvo in 1925 and also a picture of the New Almaden Cinnabars baseball team in 1897. The photos that actually do relate to the high-tech universe highlight all the basics, from the Hewlett-Packard So, before we go any garage to NASA, from Amdahl to Google. But while the chosen photos further, we must are interesting, they are so strewn declare a stipulation: about the six arbitrary chapters that ‘Silicon Valley’ is not the whole thing results in a confused necessarily one and presentation. If the book is “Silicon Valley,” then why do we need to see a the same thing as photo of an indistinguishable roadside ‘Santa Clara Valley’ motel in Sunnyvale, with no apparent connection? When I envision a book for Arcadia on Silicon Valley, I want to see at least one image from Douglas Engelbart’s famous 1968 presentation, where he first demonstrated that one could edit text on a screen, make hypertext links and mix graphics with text. I want to see Bill Atkinson sitting in an office designing the pull-down menu. I want to see a photo of where Steve Jobs took his first hit of LSD. I want to see Steve Wozniak hacking people’s television signals. I want the Timex Sinclair, the Altair or the Commodore 64 music chip. And where’s Spacewar, the first video game? But I guess all that material just wouldn’t intrigue the readers of Arcadia books. Instead we have to see a picture of the first time Caltrain went to the Garlic Festival in 1985. I guess one good thing about Shueh’s version of Silicon Valley, though, is that it proves anybody anywhere can put together one of these books. For example, if you can locate a few hundred photographs somehow related to the corner of Branham and Pearl, you can probably write an Arcadia book and call it “San Jose’s North Oakridge Neighborhood.”

BE careful what you tweet for, because your 140 characters could land you in the slammer. Just ask Elliot Madison. Madison, a 41-year-old selfdescribed anarchist, attended the recent G-20 protests in Pittsburgh and, like a good 21stcentury rabble-rouser, used Twitter to direct his comrades REVOLUTIONARY TECHNOLOGY B!nbo!xip!vtfe!Uxjuufs!up!ifmq!psdiftusbuf! around the mayhem. qspuftut!ibt!cffo!dibshfe!xjui!Õdsjnjobm! vtf!pg!b!dpnnvojdbujpo!gbdjmjuz/Ö

Coppers didn’t like that so much, so now they’ve arrested him for hindering apprehension or prosecution, criminal use of a communication facility and possession of instruments of crime, which we can only imagine means the police radio found in his Pittsburgh hotel room, and not Twitter, which is everyone’s.

Investigators are taking this thing super seriously: they raided Madison’s Queens apartment and removed antiquated items, like “newspapers,” an “address book,” whatever that is, and a picture of Lenin. Anarchists are so predictable. —Andrew Belonsky =^hXg^bZV\V^clVhl]Vi4ÅCdi]ZgcA^iZ I]ZhZeZdeaZVgZhdXjiZl]Zci]ZnÉgZVc\gn#ÅBVcV\ZbZci L]ViÉhhdegZY^XiVWaZVWdjiVcVcVgX]^hil^i]Ve^XijgZd[AZc^c4>ÒcY i]Vi]^\]anjcjhjVa!VXijVaan#Å9daV IdYVnÉhl^i]"^iiZX]cd"VcVgX]^hiXVgg^ZhVe^XijgZd[8dgn9dXidgdl! egZ[ZgVWan^cVgZYXVeZ#Å7VaYl^cEZgZe]ZiZh

many people on the list are still undecided. “It’s a Democratic group, so with all the people who are running, they’re not picking sides yet,” says Williams. “Right now I’m positioning myself, so I’m in a place where I should be the one. These are all elected officials; I haven’t put any names down who are not elected officials. People in the community, like home and school club groups, I haven’t asked them yet.” Though the deadline to file for the June election doesn’t come until March 12, 2010, five

candidates are already jockeying for position in the early stages of the race for Supervisor Don Gage’s still-warm seat behind the dais. Williams and Teresa Alvarado were the first out of the gate, shortly followed by Santa Clara Valley Water District director Rosemary Kamei, Gilroy Councilman Peter Arellano and Los Gatos Mayor Mike Wasserman, the only Republican candidate so far. With issues ranging from budget cuts to health-care and environment up on the table, collecting high profile endorsements and power schmoozing for dollars are at the forefront of these candidates’ minds as they gear up for the June 8, 2010, primary election. It seems that Williams has had his sights set on succeeding Gage since he was still on the San Jose City Council. The 72-year-old retired IBM engineer went so far as to apply for an internship in the county supervisor’s office, though Gage politely declined his services. “I asked for it, but there was no need for an intern,” Williams says. “I’m sure it’s because of who I am, too, because Don has many friends who’re running. There is some relationship there, and it would be seen that I was the one, the knighting of the one.” Since being termed out last year, Williams has spent his time serving on the county’s SisterCounty Commission and the Commission on the Status of Women, all the while getting his ducks in a row. Teresa Alvarado, however, has shown even more electioneering ambition. The former executive director of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, and daughter of former county Supervisor Blanca Alvarado, is already handing out glossy campaign bookmarks and fliers adorned with her mug and &'

campaign donation information. She has launched full-force into the fundraiser circuit, and has been busy collecing her own impressive list of endorsements. County Assessor Larry Stone, former San Jose Mayor Susan Hammer, current District 5 county Supervisor Liz Kniss and San Jose Councilmembers Sam Liccardo and Ash Kalra all have their names displayed on her polished campaign website. Surprisingly, Alvarado says that her mother, Blanca, whose second term as county supervisor for District 2 ended last January, wasn’t overwhelmingly supportive when she first brought up running for the board. “I’ve talked with her over the last couple of years about my interest in running, and her response was always very sobering,” says Alvarado. “It was always ‘Oh, you don’t want to do that. It’s so hard, and the budget in the county is so tough.’ She was coming at it like a mom, after her many years in public office. . . . But, I was determined, I care about the work of the county.” For Rosemary Kamei, the June election will be her second try at the supes seat, having lost to Gage on her first go at it 12 years ago. Since then she has continued to serve a total of 15 years on the Water District board of directors. Priming herself for the election, she quit her day job as vice president of development at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte to focus on her campaign. As the wheels of the campaigns start to turn, there has been speculation of an impending face-off between Kamei and Alvarado, who are both members of several of the same Latino and community organizations. By sharing much of the same contingency, the two are in a competition with each other as they endeavor to draw supporters and donations from the same pool. As for now, though, both contenders appear to be playing nice.

“I don’t think it’s a big issue,” said Alvarado. “I talk with Rosemary, we’re friends, we’ve known each other for many years. I let her know early on that I was considering running, and I was aware that she was definitely planning to run. But that’s OK. I think that if we have good candidates, I think that’s a good thing. . . . I’m not an elected official and I want to come at this with fresh eyes.” Kamei stresses the importance of her years on the Water District board and how that’s prepared her to work outside of the Hispanic community. “I think the world of Teresa, we’ve worked well together, and I like her. I have a lot of respect for her, but I do believe that my support is broader,” Kamei says. “I’ve worked with all different communities from all different backgrounds.” Also in the run for the Latino vote is South County native Peter Arellano. A family practice physician at Kaiser Permanente, he is currently serving his fourth term on the Gilroy City Council. Arellano is banking on his heath-care experience to bring him kudos when it comes to county issues. “I’m just letting people know about my background is in the medical field, the public health field and the government field. Almost 50 percent of the county budget now deals with health care and the health issues of the community, and for me, that’s where I’m coming from,” Arellano says. He points out that he has a master’s in public health from UCLA and has worked in free clinics over the years. Wasserman, for his part, has refused to officially comment on his candidacy until the launch of his campaign site on Oct. 15, though he has filed his candidacy papers. He did, however, mention to Metro how proud he is that the town of Los Gatos implemented several large new civic projects during his time on the council. M

NSIDE THE AIR ROOM of Channel 92.3, station manager Justin Wittmayer and program director Michael Solari are poring over new music. The South Bay alternative station’s spacious studio, clustered next to sister stations KFOX-FM (98.5) and “La Preciosa” 104.9 FM in Clear Channel’s San Jose offices, is sleek and hiplooking, not unlike its two top decision makers. Both have a scrubbed corporate polish to them. With their impeccable professional manners and fluency in marketspeak, it’s not hard to see how they wrap Clear Channel bigwigs around their fingers. 16

In the fickle world of commercial radio, these guys are money, pure and simple— printed, bagged and stacked. But just beneath the gloss that allows them to navigate the halls of radio’s biggest conglomerate, there’s something—dirty. Gritty. Something that calls to mind not the shiny, modern trappings of big radio, but the ratty, filthy couches of a college station. It’s not Solari’s earring, or even the Misfits poster on the wall of the air room. It’s the way they obsess over music. Especially Solari, who can talk about music with anyone and for any amount of time. He talks about it all day at work, and then, three to four nights a week, he goes to concerts around the South Bay or up in San Francisco and Oakland and engages people at those shows about what music they’re listening to, and why. He’s just as happy talking about the station’s current stable of bands—like Green Day, Passion Pit, Death Cab for Cutie, Phoenix or Gaslight Anthem—as he is talking about the bands he grew up seeing—the Cure, Bad Religion, Descendents, Mother Love Bone. And why shouldn’t he be happy? Since he arrived at the station nicknamed “Channel” in 2007, the man’s broken at least a dozen alternative bands on U.S. radio—as in, been the first to play them on any non-college-radio station in the

country. Bands like the Ting Tings, Metric, Hockey, and most recently Matisyahu. He’d been playing the chasidic reggae performer for weeks already when the song “One Day” was adopted as the theme for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Rival alternative station Live 105 in San Francisco just added Matisyahu last week, well behind the Channel curve. Right now, Solari is talking about doing that again as he plays Ladyhawke’s single “My Delirium” for Wittmayer. The alter ego of New Zealand musician Phillipa Brown, Ladyhawke’s sound fits in perfectly with the current rise of retro-’80s rock acts—on “My Delirium,” her haunting vocals are laid over a slick chug of driving guitar. “In the U.S., outside of college radio, there’s no major radio stations playing this right now,” Solari says. “Her album came out last year overseas, and I thought it was one of the best albums of the year. But in terms of the band being introduced to the United States, it wasn’t happening yet. I’ve just been kind of tracking the progression.” “With a band like this, timing is of the essence,” explains Wittmayer. “You want to make sure the exposure is timed correctly. In other words, you can’t shine a light on something far too early, 19

when they haven’t even migrated over to the United States yet. You want to make sure that coverage is there,” says Solari. They agree to debut “My Delirium” the following week, and then next up is the new single from former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello’s new band Street Sweeper Social Club. “Just a little background on this,” Solari tells Wittmayer before he plays the song. “They’re coming with their second track, ‘Promenade.’ They have about four stations across the country that are on this new track right now. But I’m not 100 percent convinced that this is the right single.” “Didn’t they say they’d do something special for you?” asks Wittmayer. “Well, one of the options on the table is that if we don’t go with this one I’m going to play you, we have the ability to get the masters of ‘Oath,’ which is one of the tracks on the album I think is stronger. We’ll have the ability to do an edit of the song, and it’ll be exclusive to Channel 92.3.” The song starts, all heavy, distorted bass and sloppily rapped lyrics, with the licks of Morello’s guitar only coming in at the chorus. “I don’t feel it,” agrees Wittmayer. “How long would they give you an exclusive on ‘Oath?’”

“We would have it for at least a month.” “OK.”

‘Hey, hey, hey, what’s going on? This is Boots Riley from Street Sweeper Social Club. Whenever I’m on a high-speed chase, being chased by police around the corner and doing donuts in the street while sticking my middle finger up in the air and yelling, I’m always also, with the other hand, slowly dialing it to the Bay Area’s alternative music station, Channel 92.3, Keep it live!’

AIR WARRIORS 19 boutique alternative station with a very weak signal at 104.9 FM. “It was kind of a struggle, because there was KOME in the marketplace back then,” he remembers. “Maybe KOME had just transitioned, but there was Live 105. They didn’t really invest a lot in [Channel 104.9]. They just started playing really good alternative music. It was definitely in the shadow of KSJO back then, which was the huge active rock station, and KFOX. We were kind of the redheaded stepchild back then.” But the station’s brand continued to develop. Everything seemed to be going well until 2006, when one of Clear Channel’s marketing managers wanted to test out another Hispanic station, despite an extremely saturated market. Channel got the boot, and Wittmayer moved over to the classic-rock giant KFOX. But for some reason, Channel wouldn’t die. There were Myspaces and Facebook pages demanding its return, along with a petition signed by 7,000 supporters. “I was at a managers conference in Houston, and one of the people who works in marketing and public affairs for Clear Channel said, ‘You were at Channel 104.9, right? I said yeah. She goes, ‘I received more calls when we took that radio station off than any other station in Clear Channel,’” Wittmayer recalls. “And this is a little 6,000-watt station in the Bay Area.” Wittmayer wanted another shot, and in 2007 he got it, when Clear Channel let him test out Channel as an online-only station. Then he found out they would be bringing it back to the airwaves once again at 104.9. “When there was the opportunity to bring Channel back, Michael was my first call,” says Wittmayer. “I’ve worked with him for about 12 years, going way back to 98.5 KOME when it was alternative back in ’94. He really helped me redevelop the Channel brand. He’s just been great, a real strong programmer. He definitely takes risks, but they’re educated, calculated risks. He’s breaking some great new music, doing things that no other station in the country is doing.” Even as the alternative format was down or flat across the country in the last two years, Channel thrived, its revenue up year over year. Wittmayer and Solari got the ultimate reward for their success a few weeks ago, on Sept. 18, at 5pm, when Channel was moved to 92.3 FM, the frequency of the former giant KSJO, and began broadcasting 32,000 watts—five times the strength of their former signal. The station now spans the entire Bay Area, as far north as Marin, east to Concord and Walnut Creek and west to Santa Cruz. Wittmayer knows their new success also comes with potential pitfalls, especially in the world of the alternative format, where “sell out” is the worst label you

can slap on something. “When the station was a little boutique radio station, our cool factor was really high,” he says. “Now we’re going to be playing on a bigger stage, but the toughest thing is to keep the integrity.” He’s not worried, since he believes one of the keys to their success is their habit of bucking conventional wisdom. As other stations are contracting the number of songs they play, Channel is expanding it. “I think it’s our playlist,” Wittmayer says. “We’re playing 200 songs. You look at most alternative stations, these guys are playing 80. “We’re going back to the late ’70s, playing the Ramones, paying homage to the forerunners of the format, while continuing to take pride in breaking new bands. Instead of looking at meters or national data, we look at what our audience is saying, and go in that direction.” Right now, the station is adding DJs to their regular slots. The biggest signing so far is DJ Tanner. Formerly the afternoon drive-time guy on Live 105, he took over Channel’s 3pm–8pm slot this week. “It’s huge for us,” Wittmayer said the day after the signing last week. “I’ve been getting tweets about it all day.” “The reason I reached out to them is the music,” says Tanner. “I love alternative music, and this station seems to be doing something that no one else can even come close to.”

‘We are the Ting Tings, and this is the only radio station currently playing this song, so you’re very lucky. Channel 92.3.’

T

HE FREQUENCY Channel took over this month, 92.3, had one of the most storied histories in South Bay radio as KSJO. Beginning in 1947 as a jazz station, it switched to rock in 1968. That move begat one of the most bitter rivalries in Bay Area radio, as KSJO and rival rock station KOME-FM (98.5) fought tooth and nail for the hearts and minds of listeners for almost three decades. KSJO ruled South Bay rock through the ’80s and ’90s, then fizzled. Clear Channel, in a move that thoroughly pissed off the South Bay rock audience, switched KSJO to a Spanishlanguage format, “La Preciosa,” in 2004. Solari was raised on South Bay radio, and remembers the glory days. “When I was growing up, the Bay Area was such a rich place for music, especially on the FM dial,” he says. “I grew up listening to DJs interact with an audience, and have a forum to share their thought and opinions on the music. I remember back in the day listening to Steve Masters, 23

listening to Steven Seaweed, listening to Dennis Erectus. These were all people who had that rapport with an audience.” Things have changed, as is obvious to anyone who still listens to commercial radio. “Nowadays, it’s somewhat few and far between to have that kind of dialogue, when you can sense that the people who are running the radio station are just as excited as the people listening to the music,” Solari says.

F COURSE, that’s less like a commercial-radio way of thinking, and more like a college-radio mindset. And not everybody appreciates that from a Clear Channel station. Nick Martinez, general manager of KSJS, San Jose State’s station, since 2002, says that generally his rule is “The less music Clear Channel plays, the better for college radio.” But he thinks it’s ridiculous for college stations to try to claim proprietary rights to new music, or complain when big stations dig into their playbook. “A lot of college stations don’t look at the big picture,” says Martinez. “The greater goal is to expose people to different types of music.” He says if college radio programming is successful enough that commercial radio imitates it in one way or another, “then we’ve done our job.” Nor is he surprised to see a commercial station finding success with a more grassroots approach. “What they were doing got stale. Now they’re looking for another avenue. I have no problem with that,” he says. “And now what do we do? Now we go deeper, and we find those gems, those musical formats nobody’s talking about.” Of course, there’s a practical element to this arrangement, too. A forward-thinking station like Channel is more likely to be interested in radio types who learned their chops at a college station. “I have five ex-KSJSers and two current KSJSers working there right now,” says Martinez.

RIS FANALI, who promotes shows in the South Bay through his Grand Fanali Productions and has recently been booking select shows at the Blank Club, has been DJing on KSCU, Santa Clara University’s station, for 10 years. His “Movie Hop” soundtrack show airs Friday mornings from 9am to noon. He agrees that Channel 92.3 is doing something very different from most commercial stations. “I’ve seen their playlist,” he says. “They’re playing a lot of stuff we play on KSCU.” But he has a different kind of relationship with them, too, since Channel has been booking about a show a month into the Blank Club. This week, they’ll present their biggest show yet at the Blank, Boston’s darlings of the retro-’80s scene, Passion Pit (see story, page 63). “Even in San Francisco, Passion Pit’s playing Bimbo’s,” says Fanali. “They play much bigger places. It’s great they’re bringing them into the Blank. I don’t even know how they’re doing it.” On Halloween, Channel has something even bigger planned for the Blank—a performance by The Bravery, one of the hottest alternative acts around. “Michael and I still talk about ‘Remember when we brought Hole to the Edge? Remember when we brought Nirvana to the Cactus?” says Wittmayer. “Hopefully in another 10 years, we’ll be saying, ‘Remember when we brought the Bravery to the Blank?’” “They wanted to do a larger room,” admits Solari. “And then we had a conversation about ‘Hey, let’s do something special, as a thank you for fans of the music, and try to make it a little more intimate.” “It’s very much about San Jose,” Wittmayer says. “The label wanted to know if we wanted to take this to San Francisco, but our roots are most definitely San Jose, even with the signal increase. It’s important to expand into those places without abandoning the South Bay. We have a lot of work and success in our own community, and now we’re growing.” Solari believes that growth won’t require them to dilute their mission. “We’re bringing together the past and the future, without saying that the alternative format began in 1992. To know that lineage, to know the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and then modern day coming in to Pearl Jam and then coming to what’s exciting and emerging right now like a Gaslight Anthem. To see that evolution, which you don’t see too much,” he says. “It’s exciting to do this kind of a presentation, which I feel like hasn’t been done in Bay Area radio before.” M

Helium Rising

A

IMING TO LIFT fashion from the shadows of Silicon Valley, Helium magazine presented its first official Atomic Fashion Show last week, highlighting the work of up-and-coming Bay Area designers, visual artists and dancers. Helium is a new San Jose State University–based fashion magazine founded by a group of SJSU arts and media students last spring. At the Sept. 30 event, nine edgy, innovative clothing collections by HL6I>8DJIJG:!7G::ON:M8JGH>DC!N6CCHH6C and @:CI9:C>B, among others, were sent down the San Jose State Student Union Ballroom catwalk. The NJEE>:?D>CIH96C8:8G:Lperformed for the packed, cheering crowd between collections, popping-and-locking their way around the runway. Having expanded to a network of 40 visual artists, photographers, stylists, writers and fashion designers, Helium has plans to put Silicon Valley on the map as a fashion focal point. “We want San Jose to become a fashion epicenter by merging emerging makeup artists and models and fashion photographers who haven’t been exposed before. We want to pull them together and give them a purpose,” says B6II=:LBDJCI;DG9, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. One of the local fashion designers featured in the show was San Jose’s =:8IDGB6CJ:A. Specializing in body-conscious cocktail and evening gowns, he describes his line 68I6CDCK:G76as “James Bond meets Sophia Loren.” “Instead of a James Bond, I wanted [to base my collection on] a ‘Jamie Bond,’ who has the sleek, fast-paced life of a classy and versatile woman,” says Manuel in an interview with Helium (sjhelium.com). “This really is a tribute to women. I wanted to create something that makes a woman feel so comfortable, that makes her feel powerful.” Helium’s first official issue is planned for publication in early December 2009, scheduled to coincide with its Dec. 4 “Elemental Fashion Show,” which the magazine’s founders hope will blow last week’s inaugural event out of the water. “Nobody thinks of San Jose as being any sort of fashion-forward-type city. What Helium is trying to do, especially with this fashion show, is to show people that there is fashion here, there are designers here,” says ?6HB>C:9J6GI:, Helium’s fashion director. “These are all people right in your back yard. These are all people in your own neighborhood who are designers just trying to make a name for themselves.” Jessica Fromm

HE HITS keep coming to Campbell. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;little downtown that couldâ&#x20AC;? continues to produce good food. The latest entrant is Cyprus Bistro & CafĂŠ. The 2-monthold restaurant occupies the space formerly held by Good Tastes wine bar and serves an easternleaning Mediterranean menu in a handsome, dusky dining room. It takes its name from the island of Cyprus, a place that coowner Margaret Kannout says is an amalgam of ďŹ&#x201A;avors from Greece, Lebanon, Turkey, Syria and northern Egypt. Kannoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-owner and husband, Omar Kannout, is from Syria. He does the cooking in the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tiny kitchen. Most of the menu reads like standard Mediterranean stuff: kebabs, baba ghanouj, dolmas, tabouli. But Cyprus offers a few lesser-known dishes, such as grilled haloumi cheese, mohammara (a slightly sweet purĂŠe of walnuts, red bell peppers and pomegranate molasses that gives hummus some serious competition in the vegetable-dip department) and eclectic and delicious soups. But for me, what sets the place

apart is the attention to detail and superior ingredients. All the produce is organically grown and prepared with a light touch that allows the simple but big ďŹ&#x201A;avors to come through. The heavy, darkwood tables are set with thick linen napkins, tiny votive candles and expensive-looking glassware. Throw in some original art and low lighting, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a stylish, urbane dining room. The restaurant is also unique in that its 30-plus item wine list is made up of all organic, vegan (no egg whites or milk protein, common ingredients in wine) or biodynamic wines, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all available by the glass. All the wine is available for off-site sale, too. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to ďŹ nd a wine list like this anywhere in Silicon Valley. The ďŹ&#x201A;oor staff is quick and generous with its tasting samples, so feel free to explore the varied selections. Meals start with a zatar: a plate of dried sumac, thyme, sesame seeds and salt into which the waiters drizzle some fruity olive oil, served with fresh-baked ďŹ&#x201A;at bread. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice touch that adds a bit of drama to the dining experience. It was the soup that made me sit up and take notice that this wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

just another kebab and hummus shop. On one lunch visit, the soup of the day ($6) was a chilled creamy zucchini. The soup could have used a shot of salt or lemon juice, but it was still refreshing on a hot day. On another day, the soup du jour was a carrot-cardamom. I expected a sweetish soup, but the sweetness of the carrot was balanced with the aromatic spice of the cardamom and the peppery kick of the olive oil swirled on top. One of my dining companions professed an aversion to carrot soup because of its cloying proclivities, but I had trouble prying his hands off this one. For lunch, head straight for the grilled lamb sandwich ($12) with supremely tender lamb. Made with lavash layered with creamy hummus, tomatoes, lettuce, tsatsiki and a light and bright artichoke salad on the side, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an immensely satisfying sandwich. By comparison, the grilled chicken and red bell pepper sandwich ($10) with pesto was just OK but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach the same heights. Better is the grilled vegetable and goat cheese sandwich on ďŹ&#x201A;at bread ($9). The inclusion of pickled and grilled vegetables really made this sandwich pop. The goat cheese is quite rich, and the counterbalance

of the vinegary vegetables made for interesting mouthfuls. The arugula-watermelon ($8) salad reads more California than Mediterranean, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winner. The sweet, juicy chunks of melon are great when sharing a fork with a Kalamata olive and a hunk of fetaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweet, salty and creamy all at once. On the short dinner menu, the grilled lamb ďŹ llet ($24) stands out, as does the kefta kebab ($21), ground beef and lamb seasoned with shallots and spices and grilled until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caramelized and crisp outside and juicy and aromatic inside. For dessert, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the housemade baklava ($5), which is good and less sweet than the typical version, but a better way to go is the almond-date mousse ($7) and the golden raisin, honey and pistachio-topped ricotta cheese ($6). The mousse is semifrozen, so it tastes like an airy ice cream. The ricotta dessert was my favorite of the three. So often desserts weigh me down, but this one was refreshing and light, a great ending for a ďŹ ne new restaurant.

Ask the Sommelier

6@DDCG:HI6JG6CI brings contemporary Indian food to Mountain View. Part of the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modern appeal is its wine list. Sommelier C>GJE6B6HG>K6HI6K6 has created a wine list to match the big, bright and spicy ďŹ&#x201A;avors of chef Sachin Chopraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking.

S

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

NIRUPAMA SRIVASTAVA: After completing hotel school in India working and on and off for many different restaurants and hotels in India and abroad, I ďŹ nally managed to take classes with Kevin Zraly at Windows on the World 1999, One World Trade Centre, New York. That is where I was truly inspired by this wine guru. The whole place had a magical effect on me, and I decided to pursue wineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the â&#x20AC;&#x153;exotic beverageâ&#x20AC;? dating back to 3,000 B.C.E. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing byproduct of natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bounty and manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creativity. All of this was enough reason for me to read and explore and learn more and more. What makes the wine list at Sakoon special?

My wine list pays tribute to many women winemakers. I also focus on eco-friendly wines. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve created many choices by offering ďŹ&#x201A;ights and half-bottles, â&#x20AC;&#x153;pick of the monthâ&#x20AC;? and seasonal specials. Sakoon donates $1 from every bottle sold to the Breast Cancer Campaign. What wine or wines are you passionate about right now?

More than the wine, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m intrigued by varietals indigenous to different regions, wines that express their region or â&#x20AC;&#x153;terroir.â&#x20AC;? For example, cabernet franc from the Loire Valley, malbec from Cahors or a grĂźner veltliner from Austria. Exciting and intriguing. These are some wines that I love: Les Clos Sacres, Savennieres; Nicolas Joly; Anjour-Saumur, Loire; Torrontes, Crios de Susana Balbo, Argentina; Gazur, Telmo Rodriguez; Ribera del Duero, Spain; Chinon, Marc Brediff. What are some of the best wine values now?

These days good wines are getting pretty expensive, but there are still some steal deals from the Southern Hemisphere (Chile, Argentina and Australia) as well as white wines from Spain and Italy. Sometimes locally produced, less important varietals used for blending can also offer great value. What is your go-to wine for every day, casual drinking?

Life is too short to drink bad wine, and of course the company one has makes all the difference. I enjoy merlot, New World especially as they are easy drinking, fruit forward and fun. Many are available at great prices, too, like Cuvee Alexander, Casa Lapostolle, Franciscan and Chateau St. Michelle. Stett Holbrook Sakoon (*,8VhigdHi#!BdjciV^cK^Zl#+*%#.+*#'%%%#

Creole Wheels

R

OACH COACHES are no longer the domain of stale sandwiches and bad coffee. Food trucks have gone upscale. Food trucks are cool. Food trucks are trendy. New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the Dessert Truck, an upscale purveyor of ďŹ ne deserts on wheels. L.A. has a trio of roving Kobi BBQ trucks, a wildly popular purveyor of Korean-Mexican food. Portland has Garden State, a shiny coach that sells Sicilian street snacks. And now Silicon Valley is about to join the fraternity of mobile food vendors with the debut of the Louisiana Territory food truck. Silicon Valley has its share of taco trucks and hot dog carts, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much where the street-food scene ends. I once heard about a mobile pho truck, but I never found it. So I was excited to hear that K>C8:<J6H8=, who co-owns E6GHA:N!H6<:! GDH:B6GN6C9I=NB: catering with his wife, Debbie Blackwell and formerly ran ADJ>H>6C6I:GG>IDGN restaurant before it met its end at the HP Pavilion in 1996, is about to roll out a new mobile restaurant offering Cajun and Creole food. Opening day is set for Tuesday, Oct. 13. The use of Twitter, Facebook and cell phones will allow him to keep customers in the loop about where the truck will be parked, what the specials are and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sold out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technology makes this possible,â&#x20AC;? Guasch says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That and the low overheard of a kitchen on wheels.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contemplating locations in downtown San Jose and Mountain View, but may expand to others as business grows. Louisiana Territory was a successful restaurant in Mountain View until it moved into San Joseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s HP Pavilion. Sky-high rent, a hard-to-ďŹ nd location and a host of other problems doomed the restaurant. But Gausch said he still hears from customers who miss the restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always wanted to restart it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Food will be prepared at Gauschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catering kitchen and then loaded into the truck. Most items with go for about $5 and nothing will sell for more than $8. If all goes well, Gausch said he plans to roll out another food truck called Garnish 44, a four-wheeled eatery serving a decidedly more upscale menu of globally inspired California cuisine. One dish Gausch is considering marries Creole sauce with Indian paneer. Creole-Indian fusion? Why not? The streets of Silicon Valley could use a little spicing up.

ORN IN San Francisco and raised in Palo Alto and Menlo Park, ?DH>6=HADC: of H:CIHDK>in Saratoga found his calling at very a young age. While friends played with G.I. Joe action ďŹ gures, he read The Joy of Cooking from cover to cover; while they watched cartoons, he was drawn to the cooking programs of Martin Yan and Julia Child. In keeping with the changing seasons and the availability of local ingredients, Slone changes his menu of contemporary French and American food regularly. Working with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients is de rigueur in Bay Area restaurants, but Sloneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking takes this edict to new levels of deliciousness.

METROGUIDE

Mad About ‘Mad Men’ Season 3 finds the men and women of ‘Mad Men’ in free fall that echoes our own era By Richard von Busack

D

UPLICITY. Mad Men (Sundays at 10pm on AMC) continues its examinations of the human urge to keep the public and private face separate. Its third season is an exploration of covertness, with a depth and humor we’re not getting much in the movies—at least not with this kind of juice and this kind of cruelty. The series focuses on a group of advertising executives in early 1960s Manhattan, but like everything else that happens on this show, there’s a reverse angle on even this simple description. The talent is embattled. The firm of Sterling Cooper is layoff-ridden, and the British ad agency with which they’ve merged has placed a boss (Jared Harris) on-site to begrudge the cost of every paper clip. No one in the show has solid ground under his feet. Thus the show’s titles, a nod to Saul Bass’ graphics for the titles of Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Accompanied by a theme that sounds like a house-music version of Sibelius’ Valse Triste, a man’s silhouette plummets down a canyon of cartoon skyscrapers, flickering with advertising images. I want to double back again: I’ve just written that no one has solid ground under their feet. There are two who, at first glance, seem to be grounded, and they are the agency’s two namesakes. One is Bertram

Cooper (Robert Morse), the lofty, elderly shogun. Then again, Cooper recently turned up asking for a drink in Don Draper’s office with no good reason for sitting down when he should be off on his errands—this kind of pause in any serial drama flags us that Cooper himself may be dead soon. The younger partner, Roger Sterling (John Slattery), is in the midst of marrying a girl way too young for him. This maneuver comes too soon after a serious divorce, and he has previously suffered a heart attack. More unforgivably, he was cheating on both previous wife and mistress in a sense, because of having seduced and abandoned the red-haired secretary/juggernaut Joan (Christina Hendricks). Joan’s recent ooh-la-la accordion performance of Cole Porter’s “C’est Magnifique” has been a YouTube hit. Joan is a work of artifice, an array of larger-than-life curves, glazed with a scarily “ladylike” demeanor. Who knew that there was something in her that wanted to be someone’s pampered French poodle? On the other side—always the reverse angle in every scene— Joan flashed a more customary mute look of anger at her fiance for pushing her to play music in front of his parents. Duplicity is also all over the ad business itself. Clients are wooed

when they’re there and then subject to all kinds of contempt after they leave. The smartest person at the agency has to find his own equilibrium. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) has the most to hide—a rural background so squalid he can only hint at when unbuttoning himself with strangers. And he has a few other secrets. Hamm is one of the few inarguable reasons to own a television set today. To longtime TV watchers, there’s something in Hamm’s Draper inherited from Rod Serling of The Twilight Zone: he, too, is a sardonic smoker with a slightly choked voice, Brylcreemed hair and a chronic wince at the human condition—may be just the smoke getting in his eyes. The show’s everslipping center, Draper is attuned to trouble. It is 1963 in the third season; something is happening, and Draper almost knows what it is. As a covert man himself, he harbors a sneaking sympathy with the growing American underground—the people left out of the Ivy League scheme of things. The show insists that the single most important difference between 2009 and 1963 is the sexual politics. The sharp, lean writing brings us the alienation of the past—what a different country it was, how frightening it was. Again and again, we register the samurai-like expressionless-expression of the women, verbally slapped down

every time. What goes on here is the exact opposite of the chortling deference to power in Billy Wilder’s comedies of the early 1960s. The obviously gay Sal (Bryan Batt) has his own role to play in these sexual politics, and he is on the verge of being found out and ruined. The striving Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) is trying to free herself, to seize male privilege. Joan’s own pushiness can gets her so far but no further. As for Betty (January Jones), Don’s wife: one episode was an essay in what you could call “unnatural childbirth”— Don kept from the delivery room, the child pushed out of her when she’s conked out on opiates. While this unpredictable show gives no clues, it’s clear that the trauma of the Kennedy assassination will be catalyzing matters in the year’s wrap-up. Hearing all this, a younger viewer may just moan, dear Jesus, not the 1960s again. But in watching Mad Men, one final reverse angle suggests itself. The show’s essence isn’t about the Kennedy era but about all the 2009 questions: the struggle between the progressive and the regressive, between those who take the current and those who swim backward against it. There are no paragons on Mad Men, but the show does argue that the tide is won not by the strong but by the sensitive. M

A young Hispanic boxer learns life lessons from an older wiser trainerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Roqui in short. Directed by long-time stunt coordinator Jimmy Nickerson. (Opens Oct 9 at Camera 12 in San Jose and selected theaters.)

The Invention of Lying (PG-13; 100 min.) Ricky Gervais ďŹ rst rose to fame playing the awkwardly hilarious David Brent in the British version of The OfďŹ ce. His brand of embarrassing, selfdeprecating humor immediately won over audiences in the U.K. and made him a cult ďŹ gure in America. With The Invention of Lying, Gervais intends to ďŹ nally take the States by storm and establish himself as a true artist in the process. Along with newcomer Matthew Robinson, who cowrote and co-directed the ďŹ lm, Gervais goes a bit broader for American audiences but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose the wit or charm thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gained him so many fans. The story takes place in a world where lying doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, a world that serves humansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most primal needs and where they ignore their innermost conscience. So short, pudgy Mark Bellison (Gervais) is constantly getting the short end of the stick. However, when he goes to the bank, he is given a rare opportunity that suddenly sets his wheels in motion. With the computer system down, the teller asks how much he has in his account. This being a world where lies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, there is an inherent â&#x20AC;&#x153;honorâ&#x20AC;? system.

The Big Sleep/Laura (1946/1944) The Stanford Theatre celebrates its 2oth anniversary with a program of audience favorites. In The Big Sleep, easygoing L.A. private detective Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) is hired by a crippled general to keep tabs on his nymphomaniac daughter, who is wrapped up in a case of blackmail and murder—all a matter of less importance to Marlowe then matching wits with the ladies over cocktails. No one has ever cared as much about the plot as they have about Howard Hawks’ staggeringly impudent direction—or as much as they cared for Lauren Bacall, who plays the smoky-voiced, tough good girl who assists Marlowe. For once in the movies, the playing field is leveled between women and men—as seen in the friendly rainy-day tryst between Marlowe and a bookstore clerk (Dorothy Malone), a scene supposedly improvised on the spot. It’s just about the most confident movie ever made and one of the most watchable (and rewatchable). BILLED WITH Laura. It exerts a mesmerizing effect on many people, even though it seems to hang on one good gimmick and one memorable theme song. Clifton Webb has some fine moments, though, as Waldo Lydecker, a wizened-up version of Walter Winchell, and Judith Anderson and Vincent Price also make amusing suspects. Gene Tierney stars as the bewitching Laura. (Plays Oct 9-10 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB) Niles Film Museum Regularly scheduled programs of silent films.

Reviews All About Steve (PG-13) No one is doing what Sandra Bullock does, walking the line between glamour and girl-next-door, producing her own comedies and getting mileage out of being a New Jersey girl in a Fifth Avenue body, a quick fast lady in world too slow for her. But All About Steve—despite a sturdy screwball comedy script—shows that Bullock may have to move on to a new stage. Bullock plays Mary Magdalene Horowitz, a Sacramento crossword puzzle composer still living at home with her parents, who is set up on a blind date with Steve (Bradley Cooper), a cameraman from “CCN News.” Mary falls madly in love at first sight and starts chasing Steve

around the country. Bullock’s bleached hair and skimpy outfit shows that she’s thinking young, but she may have too much integrity to be right for a yakkety ditz like Mary. Fortunately, Thomas Haden Church—as a straight-faced, splendidly conceited newsman—takes up some of the slack as Steve’s co-worker, who mischievously encourages Mary in her pursuit. (Steve calls him “Iago” for this, evidence that the movie’s writing is on a higher plain than you’d expect.) The news stories covered have some wit to them—a moving story of a three-legged baby in Oklahoma, whose separated parents can’t agree whether to amputate the extra limb or not, causing large vigils, sign-carriers and candle-holding outside the hospital. Bullock is most likable acting on her honest desire to pounce on Steve; there’s no girlish coyness in a line like “I’m going to eat you like a mountain lion.” She’s about ready to play some fine cougars,

hunting down some younger man and making him like it. (RvB) Bright Star (PG; 119 min.) There are some great kisses in it. It’s an unusually flowery film from this thorny director Jane Campion, suggesting the troubled relationship of Fanny Brawne (Abby Cornish) and the poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) as an idyll of hyacinths and daffodils, birdsong and butterflies surrounded by slums. Circa 1820, Keats is loved by Fanny, an independent-minded girl who made some money through sewing and design. Acting as a brake on this romance: Charles Armitage Brown, Keats’ friend, fellow poet and self-appointed watchdog. Paul Schneider’s salty and scene-stealing performance as this ironist matches Keats’ poem “Character of Charles Brown.” The sad fact is that poetry read onscreen seems flat, and the better the poetry is, the flatter

The Dresser ‘Coco Before Chanel’ explores the early life of the woman who liberated women’s bodies

O

NE OF THE most ardent pro-corset passages in literature is “The Old Chevalier,” a Gothic tale by Isak Dinesen. An old man remembers the 1870s: “In those days a woman’s body was a secret which her clothes did their utmost to keep. . . . They made it their object to transform the body they encircled, and to create . . . a mystery which it was a divine privilege to solve.” The Chevalier remembers undressing a lady, “her waist still delicately marked by the stays, as with a girdle of rose petals.” You can see why some of today’s hipsters have gone back to the laces and whalebone. But “privilege” is a loaded word, never to be used lightly. In the well-done biopic Coco Before Chanel, Audrey Tautou plays the designer as modernist; a woman who assumed male privilege by assuming the simplicity and directness of their clothes. Chanel is, in this account, almost a transvestite in the pre–World War I period, taking shears to modify men’s trousers, shirts and coats. Coco Before Chanel begins in an orphanage, where Gabrielle Chanel, the designer to be, is raised by immaculate nuns with pterodactyl-size bonnets. There’s a rather vast leap to adulthood; Gabrielle and her sister, Adrienne (Marie Gillain), have new careers as saloon singers. Coco calculates her way into bed with a wealthy roué named Etienne Balsan (Benoît Poelvoorde). Boldly, she pursues him back to his chateau and steps quickly into the life of a kept woman. Director Anne Fontaine reminds us that Coco Before Chanel is a movie from the country that gave us The Rules of the Game. What could have been a dull bird-in-the-gilded-cage story turns urbane, with the ever-changing flow of power between Coco and the slightly wizened but sporty decadent. Balsan is the kind of self-amused playboy who nicknames his prized coal-black racehorse “Snow White.” He’s a dedicated wastrel but an elegant one. Two of Balsan’s friends prove influential: one is a stage-farce actress named Emilienne (Emmanuelle Devos), who enjoys the little straw hats Coco keeps whipping up. The other is a British businessman nicknamed “Boy” (Alessandro Nivola); soon, Coco is mad about the Boy, even though there’s something of the cad, etc. Sanely, the film makes no enormous claims for Chanel’s legacy. The end titles call it an empire, but Tautou—last seen, cigarette on lip, in a cage of mirrors, surrounded by models wearing her gowns—makes it look like mostly hard work. Tautou is perhaps a little old for the role, but she’s unusually sharp. Without speeches, Coco Before Chanel gives all due importance to the little black dress, here seen making its debut at the Deauville Casino. One feels a little sad at the French Impressionist beach scene on its way out, witnessing women in full gowns and parasols. Meringues on their heads, Coco mutters, seeing the gauze-laden cartwheel hats, which look like pastries. The change Chanel wrought was indubitably feminist, bringing physical and sexual freedom and the death of the corset. “You’re so easy to undress,” Boy tells Coco. The downside: the ideal of ascetic leanness as the essence of glamour today, a different kind of tyranny. Richard von Busack COCO BEFORE CHANEL (PG-13; 105 min.), directed by Anne Fontaine, written by Camille and Anne Fontaine, photographed by Chistophe Beaucame and starring Audrey Tautou, opens Oct. 9 at Los Gatos Cinema, Aquarius in Palo Alto and CinéArts Santana Row.

After this incident, we can cut and paste in much of David Cronenberg’s version of The Fly, as the smarmy Wikus begins to mutate, losing his fingernails and teeth. The massive corporation he works for makes him a wanted man, and he’s forced to get the help of one of the prawns.

it sounds. Campion’s approach is far more interesting than the customary MerchantIvory or Jane Austen–industry adaptation. Bright Star has blood and sweetness in it, but the limpid, flower-childish nature of this vision may make some viewers sneeze from the pollen. (RvB) Capitalism: A Love Story (R; 127 min.) Michael Moore’s broad but apt documentary has both his strong points (his expert and hilarious use of montage) and his weak points: his tendency to address us as through a bullhorn and his use of the time-honored “Michigan Defense,” as seen in Anatomy of

a Murder: “Your honor, I’m just a humble country journalist, doing the best I can against this brilliant system.” The film is a Mondo Financo with episodes about the arcane and vicious qualities of a rogue system: the nigh-destruction of his hometown through Wall Street scheming; the Gogol-like “Dead Peasant Insurance” story; and the overworking of commercial pilots and the resulting body counts. The movie doesn’t stint working-class success stories, including a tour of the co-op-run Petaluma’s Alvarado Street Bakery. This call for democratic socialism sounds loud, clear and not at all shrill after 30 bruising years of privatization, layoffs and shameless corporate thievery. Hugely

entertaining, Capitalism: A Love Story will get people in touch with an anger they didn’t know they possessed—and a hope they didn’t dare let themselves feel. (RvB) Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (PG; 90 min.) A 3-D animated family film based on a famous children’s book. District 9 (R; 112 min.) Humans and alien refugees live in close and uncomfortable proximity in Johannesburg in dystopian sci-fi thriller by Neill Blomkamp. The story is told documentary style, as we follow the mysterious disappearance of Wikus (Sharito Copley), a human employee of Multi-National United. Included in this

(500) Days of Summer (PG-13; 95 min.) Tom (Joseph GordonLevitt), a greeting-card writer, has his heart broken by a girl he knew for about two years. She was called Summer (Zooey Deschanel). As Tom recalls this tale in random-accessed moments, we begin to see the bigger picture. (500) Days of Summer is allegedly an anti-romantic film, but the result is yet another alternadate movie—a little brighter, a little more referential, than usual. The scenes don’t go on so long that they wear out their welcome. And yet it’s so full of negative space—places where jokes could have been planted, places where the characters could have been deepened. If only director Marc Webb had spent as much time thinking how to fill in the blanks as he spent murmuring, “It’s going to be Annie Hall for our generation.” (RvB) I Can Do Bad All by Myself (PG-13) Tyler Perry directs, writes and stars in another Madea comedy. I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (R; 105 min.) I hope so, too, but chances are better that Lucifer will use this movie to punish his minions. This cinematic distillation of Tucker Max’s malign blog is a tentative, denatured thing, getting a theatrical release only because its producers hope to get some of The Hangover’s gravy on its potatoes. It’s bachelor party time: three Richmond, Va., law students drive 250 miles to Salem to avoid the no-touch policy at the local strip

clubs. The party of three is Drew (Jesse Bradford), a woman hater who threw his fiancee out after he discovered her giving head to a rapper called Grillionaire; Dan (Goeff Stults, a discount version of Ben Affleck) is the groom-to-be. Ringleader is Tucker (Matt Czuchry), a nonspecific troublemaker; considering that it is his movie, Tucker is in very soft focus—and Czuchry resembles the milk-colored, childish Aryan sociopath home invaders in Funny Games. The movie stalls as Drew is rehabbed by a tough but tender stripper. Fans of misogyny against deaf girls are directed to In the Company of Men instead; the dialogue here against “the rib-stealing gender” is much more squeaky, befitting a movie in which real boobs rub up against fake ones. The real Max is a real barbarian—many a convicted rapist has less creepy attitudes toward women—but no one ever called him a cop-out. This movie, by contrast, is. (RvB) In the Loop (Unrated; 106 min.) Armando Iannucci, a well-known figure in British television comedy, does a scathing sort-of version of the dawn of the Iraq invasion. James Gandolfini’s Lt. Gen. George Miller is a more wrathful version of Colin Powell. Mimi Kennedy plays Miller’s best ally, Karen Clarke, a career State Department diplomat with dandruffy hair and teeth that seem to be disintegrating during the middle of a crisis. Gandolfini and Kennedy’s characters are the film’s moral center—the two people operating with goodwill. We want to follow them through this sonata of collapsing spines and raving, swearing political careerists. But too often Iannucci just won’t let us. The fierce verbiage pours forth like a gusher, but the smartness outsmarts itself. (RvB) The Informant! (R; 108 min.) Matt Damon, with a tire around his gut and a ratty, chewed-looking blond mustache, plays Mark Whitacre, a vice president at Archer Daniels Midland Company. When he reports a case of industrial espionage, his superiors whistle up the FBI. Enter a pair of local agents. One is Special Agent Brian Shepard: Scott Bakula, whose solemn Lincolnesque profile rhymes with the busts of the Great Emancipator seen all over the Illinois locations. Mark confesses to Shepard that he knows a secret: ADM and its overseas rivals have been conspiring to fix prices. The FBI urges Mark to wear a wire to try to nail down the schemers. Inevitably, the executive’s own foot gets tangled in the trap he’s weaving. Soderbergh’s comic true-life thriller shows what was missing from Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can and Michael Mann’s The Insider. It’s a small masterpiece of slyness—a lambent, seemingly effortless entertainment, a slice of cake that has a tarantula on it. (RvB) Inglourious Basterds (R; 153 min.) Hilarious but gripping World War II movie to end all World War movies. In five chapters: the untold story of “Operation Kino”—a cinephile’s fantasy of using the power of movies to destroy Der Führer and his gang. Key in the plot: a roaming band of Jewish psychos led by war atrocity fancier Lt. Aldo Rayne (Brad Pitt, irresistible), a Dietrich-like siren (Diane Kruger) and an urbane British film critic (Michael Fassbinder). All are opposed by a sardonic yet seemingly polite Nazi swinehunde, the film’s standout: Christoph Walz, as lovably loathsome as von Stroheim, only with Jason Robards’ own air of creepy good cheer. Quentin Tarantino phrases the war as a conflict between honest brutality and masked sadism; in doing so, he pulls the rug out from under tradition-of-quality movies about the war (Saving Private Ryan comes to mind) and gives us what we secretly wanted to see all along. It’s juicy, ebullient and insanely self-confident filmmaking. (RvB)


M E T R O S I L I C O N VA L L E Y  OCTOBER 7-13, 2008FILM The Invention of Lying (PG-13; 100 min.) Ricky Gervais stars in a comedy about getting away with lies when everyone else tells the truth. Jennifer’s Body (R; 110 min.) To those who thought Diablo Cody was the next Dorothy Parker: much of the dropped brand-names and oddly out of time sitcom references you love are all laid out and waiting for you. It’ll take horror fans to make Jennifer’s Body sell, though, and they’ll feel that they got skimpy portions. Director Karyn Kusama is a little intimidated by the prose and the subject matter. Anita (Amanda Seyfried) is a nerdly small-town girl whose best friend Jennifer (Megan Fox) can be kind of a bitch. One evening, Jennifer disappears and comes back in the early morning covered with blood and black bile. Nothing is spoken of this incident for a while, until weeks later a beefy football player is found eviscerated in the woods. Feminist? Well, yes, but mostly no. The two girls’ plight might have made us feel something if they weren’t so geeky-cool. Or if Megan Fox wasn’t suffused by her conviction that she’s the hottest number on the planet. (RvB) Julie & Julia (PG-13; 123 min.) Meryl Streep’s greatness—her facility with accents, her plasticity and that uncompromising quality every really lasting actress has to have—has been used to portray the limits of human suffering. In Julie & Julia, Streep gets to kick up her heels. She has such fun with the part of the cookbook writer Julia Child that she’s consistently intoxicating to watch. Streep continues at full sail through the film, elevated a bit on a high heels and trotting with the happy clunkiness of a Clydesdale. Childs’ distinctive voice—the whoop of surprise, the trill and warble when she talked—makes Streep’s part of the film enthralling. But there had to be some way to hold the film together, and sure enough disaster befalls. Half of this film is based on the hustled-into-print book version of a blog by Julie Powell about replicating all of Childs’ recipes. Amy Adams, the most charming young actress alive, plays Julie, and she’s still a horror. Director Nora Ephron tries for frankness in her script by having Julie Powell call herself a bitch. That isn’t enough to rehab her. (RvB) Love Happens (PG-13) Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart get serious about each other. 9 (PG-13; 79 min.) Seriously derivative CGI adventure about a group of numbered dolls in a postapocalyptic wilderness. The title character (voiced by Elijah Wood) is a burlap creature with a zipper front and camera lenses for eyes. 9, mute at first, encounters some of his fellow creatures: 2, a wise old man; then comes the ninja girl 7 (voiced by Jennifer Connelly), the only woman in the picture—a warrior with a seagull skull for a helmet; most important somehow is a ponderous, self-important bishop (Christopher Plummer), a belfry dweller with an English penny as a jewel in his mitre. All are under attack by malignant robots. There’s a certain flair to the characterization here, particularly the beasts that keep rising up and threatening the little homunculi with their tigerish talons. But Shane Acker’s expansion of his short film is missing a script. And it wraps up its saga with a plot device just used in Harry Potter and the Half Blood-Prince: one more detail of a real multidimensional disappointment. (RvB) Pandorum (R) A horror sci-fi about a space voyage gone bad. Stars Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster. Paris (R; 130 min.) Director/writer Cédric Klapisch’s intriguing if lightweight tag-

Scare Tactics ‘Paranormal Activity’ is the most frightening film anyone will see this year

W

RITER-DIRECTOR Oren Peli’s Paranormal Activity has been labeled “the next Blair Witch Project”—meaning, essentially, horror’s new runaway phenomenon—and judging from the audience reactions at one of the first screenings in the country, that doesn’t seem far off. Santa Cruz was one of only 13 cities to which it was first released, and the film has been selling out its midnight screenings at the Del Mar. The reactions there reminded me of audiences at the prerelease screenings of Blair Witch, before hype, built-up expectations and misunderstandings about what that film actually was led to a huge backlash. Here’s the thing: people at Paranormal Activity were actually scared. They screamed. They were freaked out, and it was actually fun to hear people talking about how much the movie had gotten to them on the way out. Some giggled nervously, some tried to cover it up, some shook their heads as if they were trying to unsee it. For all the controversy over the changed-by–Steven Spielberg climax, I have to say it freaked me out, too. Without spoiling anything, I’ll say that, personally, I wasn’t all that comfortable walking into the night knowing the implications of the ending. (Interestingly, the other two endings that were considered hit a very different—shall we say very final—note.) There are some very important differences between Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch Project that I think will help this movie in the long run. There are similarities, sure. Peli made this for $15,000, and the plot is about what you can expect anybody to get out of $15,000. It has a young couple, played by Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat using their real names (in what seems like an homage to Blair Witch), believing something unusual and disturbing is going on in their house. Micah buys a hand-held camera to try to capture it on film, recording day and night. This leads to the movie’s biggest flaw, also a weakness in Blair Witch, Cloverfield and almost any other movie that uses this device, what I call Why Am I Picking Up the Camera Right Now Syndrome. It pulls me out of the movie when I have to think, “Wait, would someone really go pick up the camera and film this if that was happening?” However, it also leads to lots of genuinely creepy footage, and Peli’s excellent sense of timing makes this certainly the scariest movie anyone will see this year. He actually made it in 2007, but it kicked around until Steven Spielberg saw it and supposedly was so scared he returned the DVD in a garbage bag, saying it was haunted. Now, Dreamworks and Paramount are putting it out, and it’s already made back its production cost more than a dozen times over. The biggest difference between this movie and Blair Witch is that Paranormal Activity delivers when it counts. Its title is as much a threat as a name, and while it may sometimes use it as cover to deliver some unexpected twists, it always lives up to it. Steve Palopoli PARANORMAL ACTIVITY (R; 99 min.), directed and written by Oren Peli and starring Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat, opens Oct. 9 at the AMC Mercado in Santa Clara and the Oakridge in San Jose.

Loco Parentis ‘The Boys Are Back’: pizza in bed, tears before bedtime

B

ILL MURRAY, back at No. 1 at the box office, where he belongs, once played an armed bank robber disguised as a clown. When the bank’s security guard asked him, “What the hell kind of clown are you?” Murray replied, “The crying-on-the-inside kind, I guess.” The Boys Are Back is a crying-on-the-inside sort of movie, based on Simon Carr’s memoir. “Joe Warr” (Clive Owen) seemingly has it all—a good marriage, a job as a top-level newspaper sportswriter, a young son and an off-the-road bungalow not too far from the beach in south Australia. Then, at a party, his wife (Laura Fraser) falls into a faint and thus into a short but credibly harrowing bout with cancer. (The scene of her, demented from chemo, trying to make sandwiches for her child in the middle of the night, is maybe the film’s best.) After her death, Joe holds away intruders and decides to try to raise his young son Artie (Nichols McAnulty) by himself, eventually sending for his other son, Harry (George MacKay), from a British boarding school. Out of grief, distraction and compassion, Joe decides to let his kids run wild—a “just say yes” policy that manifests itself with bike riding in the house, pizza in bed and chickens strutting indoors. This carrying on evokes the disapproval of Bob’s mother-in-law, an equestrian type. Thirteen years later, after various features and concert movies, director Scott Hicks is still best known for Shine. Hicks can capture a dreamy, impressionistic moment, such as the opening scene of Bob letting his son ride on the hood of his truck as he drives down the beach—one of those sun-dazed hazy incidents that are usually accompanied on the soundtrack by the twinkling of ethereal chimes. In exchange for government financing, the Australian film industry tries to show off the continent to attract visitors. Hicks makes the dry golden hills of south Australia shine, and we see the grapevines and the endless fine beaches. In one scene, the picturesque is tinged with anxiety: Harry wakes suddenly to the cries of hundreds of antipodean birds and, looking out the bedroom window, he sees kangaroos grazing in the yard, like deer. Despite this likable travelogue, The Boys Are Back tends to lay everything out—complete with regular appearances by the wife’s ghost. Trouble comes when Bob has to go to the city for work, leaving his sons alone. A too-wild party trashes the house; Hicks stages it like a 16-year-old’s hard-to-believe story of how it all happened, through absolutely no fault of his own: “All of a sudden, these people showed up in cars. . . .” The film can’t escape the sitcom mawkishness of the premise, no matter how much restrained sensitivity Owen radiates. Not many actors can balance the noble and the earthly—the miscast Owen can, but Bob Warr shouldn’t have been played that way, with such choked nobility. (For what it’s worth, the real Carr looks like a real journalist: a celebrity kind, a debauched version of Johnny Carson.) I could have submitted to this film’s relentless invitation to weep if the bereaved dad had looked like he was having a little fun with his clowning. Richard von Busack THE BOYS ARE BACK (PG-13; 104 min.) directed by Scott Hicks, written by Simon Carr and Allan Cubitt, photographed by Greig Fraser and starring Clive Owen, opens Oct. 9 at Camera 7 in Campbell and the Aquarius in Palo Alto.

team film. He takes to the heights of the city—Montmartre, the helipad at the Tour Montparnasse, the Eiffel Tower and, most important, the top floor of a Haussmannera building directly above Gambetta Metro. There, a former chorus dancer at the Moulin Rouge, Pierre (Romain Duris), is mortally ill with a heart condition. Pierre’s sister, Elise (Juliette Binoche), a social worker, moves in to nurse Pierre, bringing her brood of fatherless children. The film is like a pile of jackstraws, rather than a solid structure; the loosest ends are the subplots in Cameroon and North Africa, where new immigrants are trying to get to where the euros are. Karin Viard is hilarious as a racist bakery owner; the ace comic actor Fabrice Luchini plays a history professor, undone by modern temptations. (RvB) Surrogates (PG-13; 88 min.)

Late one night, the son of the man who made this technical breakthrough possible is murdered, fried by electrical surge after his avatar is killed by a strange new weapon. Investigating the crime is an FBI agent (Bruce Willis) and his partner (Radha Mitchell). They believe the crime is linked to a large reservation of Luddites, led by a charismatic leader called the Prophet (Ving Rhames). Based on a graphic novel, this routiner-thanroutine mystery teaches us little, except that toupees won’t look much better in the future. Though the use of these ’bots has reportedly wiped out sexism and racism, you certainly couldn’t tell: when Willis talks, women listen, and at one point he calls a suspect “Honey.” The possibilities, visible even in a far-more-low-budget effort like Creation of the Humanoids (1962), aren’t teased out here, in what’s eventually a tract against spending too much time online. Bad exposition (“This kid’s father is Lionel Canter—as in the inventor of surrogates, Lionel Canter!”) complements the seriously ugly color, which as usual might look better on Hi-Def TV. (RvB) Whip It (PG-13; 111 min.) Drew Barrymore’s whengirls-collide roller derby movie is bliss; actually, Ellen Page plays Bliss, a Bodeen, Texas, tomboy who takes the name “Babe Ruthless.” Director and bon vivant Drew Barrymore (who plays a rolling calamity of a teammate) has rescued Page from the career-killing move of repeatedly playing the smartest person in the room; here we get to see the speed and energy in Page’s tiny frame since she’s playing an athlete, of sorts. The acting is superior on down the line. As the parents, Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern have a fond rapport, and in a noteworthy comeback role Juliette Lewis smolders away as the well-motivated villain on a rival team. Scriptwriter Shauna Cross’s wit lets Page hold the screen like never before. (RvB) Zombieland (R; 81 min.) Under a plague of the living dead, the United States is in ruins, and the nervous college-age hero (Jesse Eisenberg) calls the dreadful landscape Zombieland. He joins three reluctant companions: a Twinkies-loving cowboy called Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), a fast female loner named Wichita (Emma Stone) and her little sis, Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). They head to a place where they think the light at the end of the tunnel still shines: Disneyland, renamed “Pacific Playland.” There’s merit to the idea of a turkey-shoot zombie-killing finale amid colored lights and spinning rides, but the film doesn’t get more imaginative than anything seen in the previews. Under Ruben Fleischer’s bare-bones direction, Zombieland is slathered with narration. Harrelson is a fierce-looking party, but he doesn’t get Western-lyrical enough. (RvB)

Stones in A Glass House

At MACLA, the de la Torre brothers blow glass and minds with a mashup of conquerors and conquered By Michael S. Gant

T TRIPPY TRIPTYCH Xpsmet!dpmmjef!jo!uif! ef!mb!Upssf!cspuifstÖ! ÕMb!Sfdporvjtub/Ö

HE MEXICAN-American artist/brother team of Einar and Jamex de la Torre use blown glass in ways that would appall the guild members at the Murano or Steuben factories. With bravura technique and a wicked sense of humor, they fuse sensuous fat rolls and globs of colored glass and assemble them into comic grotesqueries. Not stopping with glass, the de la Torres freely mix and mismatch plastic flotsam and pop-culture detritus into their impish figures. Working with symbols both potent and denatured, they satirize the whole dubious enterprise of globalization as practiced for 500 years, from the first encounter at the point of a lance between Old World and New to the 21st century’s homogenized but still hypercharged cross-border blend of pre-Conquest traditions and modern commercial kitsch. The whole project inextricably links multiple cultures topsy-turvy until it is impossible to tell who has colonized whom, hence the clever title of their current show at MACLA: “Reconquista.” In the large wall piece Eggs Benedict (2007), for instance, a papal-garbed

figure with a pig’s red snout stands on an enormous red saber as some natives flee before him. In his hands, God’s rep also holds the disembodied heads of some “saved” souls in what look like balloons. Again and again in these pieces, Mayan, Toltec and Aztec figures both succumb to and subvert intruders. In Mitosis (2008), a circular assemblage, an Aztec calendar wheel is overlaid with fragments of a Western-style clock face with Roman numerals. The disc is heavily encrusted with molded plastic panels featuring some of the de la Torres’ familiar tropes of modernity: automatic weapons, sneakers and giant gold coins. Especially intriguing is the array of hand-painted metal Logo Glyphs. These license-plate-size versions of Aztec word symbols, lacquered with bright colors, look sleek and shiny, reborn as modern objects instead of worn stone artifacts. New talismans—Tide, Sony, Nokia brands—are overlaid in clear resin to create layers of artifice, as if corporate logos were markers of the gods. The individual pieces are arresting, but the star of the show is the large installation La Reconquista. All of the

brothers’ themes come together in this impressive work. A whole corner of the gallery is plastered wall to ceiling with blow-up color images of a church in Oaxaca. The spires and arches of the church, digitally stitched together, are encrusted with ads for Bimbo bread, Quaker State and Coca Cola. Grinning half-masks of natives’ face done in clear resin emerge like ghostly visitations. In front of this backdrop sits a large altar, complete with gold-painted wood framing and elaborate columns. Two strange statues—Venus in an Aztec headdress standing on a halfshell, her intestines snaked out of her belly; some kind of coy frog-headed deity—flank three amazing 3-D panels crowded with famous and infamous historical and contemporary figures. In the left-hand panel, a great procession spills out of a church mockingly topped with a Bank of America sign. This painting changes depending on the angle from which you approach it. The visages of the congregation switch from familiar to frightening, from benign to baleful, as if revealing the true selves lurking behind their public masks. The figures include some up-to-the-minute two-

faced celebrities, like Shakira, Sonia Sotomayor, Edward James Olmos, Barack Obama. The central panel is centered on a floating Christ/Quetzalcoatl attended to by a heavenly chorus of historical dignitaries—Felipe Calderon, Vincente Fox, Zapata. On Earth, a winged Cortez harrows the naked masses, from Benicio del Toro and Marc Anthony to Frida Kahlo and Salma Hayak. This section is done in a three-layer process that imparts a stagey sense of depth. On the right, in full Boschean mode, the condemned are thrown off a ziggurat-shaped stone temple into the fire of Christian hell, to be forever poked and prodded by the devil’s pitchforks. The 3-D effect here shows demon faces flashing into pillars of flame. All time collapses in this vision. The past is completely present. The conquerors and the conquered flipflop depending on one’s angle of approach. Such a perspective, forever shifting, is both scary and exhilarating. LA RECONQUISTA: NEW WORKS BY EINAR AND JAMEX DE LA TORRE runs through Oct. 24 at MACLA, 510 S. First St., San Jose. Free. (408.998.2783)

Dolled Up

Ballet San Jose starts its season with an extended run of story-ballet favorite â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;CoppĂŠliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

NE OF THE GREAT comic ballets of all time, CoppĂŠlia really is the sort of production people think of when they picture traditional â&#x20AC;&#x153;ballet.â&#x20AC;? Castles, windmills, skipping children in lederhosen, leaping men in tights and lots and lots of lace and tulle, Ballet San Joseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener is everything one could LIKE CLOCKWORK!!Es/!DpqqÂ?mjvt!)Efoojt!Obibu*! want in a big three-act, full-symphony xpslt!po!uif!epmm!DpqqÂ?mjb!)Tiboopo!Czovn*/!! sentimental ballet. Artistic director Dennis Nahatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus for the troupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2010 season is on longer-running, large-scale shows to bring in the crowds during the recession, and this lavishly whimsical production ďŹ ts the bill perfectly. Last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening night also marked the Ballet San Jose debut of new principal dancer Meng Lu, Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed â&#x20AC;&#x153;prince of ballet.â&#x20AC;? Coming to Silicon Valley from the Liaoning Ballet, Meng lived up to the hype and more in his ďŹ&#x201A;eet-footed performance as Franz, the starry-eyed swain who falls in love with the life-size doll CoppĂŠlia (Shannon Bynum) fashioned by Dr. CoppĂŠlius. Mengâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s precise technique and distinct bravura were undaunting in his every move and gesture, his leaps powerful and graceful, his landings light. He even brought effortless authority to his comical mime as the mannequin-infatuated male lead. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry though, Lars and the Real Girl this show is not, even if the original story line was based on E.T.A. Hoffmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gloomy Der Sandmann. In line with CoppĂŠliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fairy-tale approach is the Technicolor Disneylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;meets-Prussia scenery and lavish peasantry costuming, all by David Guthrie. As the story swiftly progresses, Franzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newfound infatuation with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the girl with enamel eyesâ&#x20AC;? comes about much to the chagrin of his feisty ďŹ ance Swanilda, danced by the charming Alexsandra Meijer. Her cheeky, ďŹ&#x201A;irty style of pantomime is ideal for this role, both in scenes where she huffs over Franzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wandering eye, or creates mayhem around Dr. CoppĂŠliusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workshop pretending to be the mechanical doll CoppĂŠlia come to life. However, Meijer did seem to lose some of her usual effortless zest toward the end of the production, even appearing visibly tired during the wedding pas de deux. Meijerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extended leg trembled heavily as she struggled to stay aloft during some of the trickier choreography and sustained balances, causing her to slip off point several times. Though the ďŹ&#x201A;ashy, 20-dancer-plus group sections were danced with energetic gusto, a few obvious timing hiccups marred the corps. Perhaps it was beginning of the season lag, or opening-night jitters, but one group entrance in particular was so off that the dancers onstage actually started looking around in bewilderment before the ballerinas ďŹ nally rushed in and the violins started up. Still, Tiffany Glennâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portrayal as the saucy town ďŹ&#x201A;irt Rosika stood out, as did Maximo Califanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Milorad, leader of the wheat harvesters. Nahat himself even played the deluded Dr. CoppĂŠlius to great humorous effect. Overall, CoppĂŠlia is as frolicking and lighthearted a production as they come. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an attention-holding, family-friendly ballet that is a great alternative for children or adults who have grown tired of the yearly Nutcracker sweet fest.

Shadow People

โ€˜Ghosts of the Riverโ€™ penetrates the darkness of lives in peril along the border OR ITS CURRENT offering, Teatro Visiรณn, along with ShadowLight Productions, presents the second collaboration between director Larry Reed and playwright Octavio Solis since the PROJECTIONS Uif!ubmft!jo!ร•Hiptut!pg!uif!Sjwfsร–!! critically acclaimed 7 Visions. In the world-premiere play Ghosts of the River, bsf!ejtqmbzfe!jo!tjmipvfuuft/ shadows are used to tell ๏ฌve vignettes about people from both sides of the Rio Grande River: from a family trying to cross during the Mexican Revolution to a special agent patrolling the shore in the present day. These ghost stories are projected onto a large screen by way of silhouetted puppets, actors and sets. Throughout the bilingual play, there is a stream of translations coasting above the stage. The combination of people in oversize masks and puppets provides a sense of awe. A wide range of inventive sizes, angles and settings makes the play almost cinematic. Some of the tales are also augmented with live music. The stories intertwine humor with the sorrowful subject matter through allusions and visuals. In one story, a man searching a train for illegals is depicted with a gorilla head and chupacabra arms. This technique harks back to the humor in political theater with exaggerated representations of the oppressors. Unfortunately, there were moments when the presentation was not really bilingual. Throughout one of the stories, for instance, the narrator speaks a combination of Spanish and English; however, the translation at the top remains in Spanish for most of his tale. The use of Walang Kulitโ€“style masks was brilliant for the spectacle and the message of the play. By being able to see the enlarged facial expressions of the shadow characters, the audience is able to achieve an emotional connection. They are not just faceless creatures, as important as a wisp of smoke and just as tangible; they are people, with lives and dreams and skin as delicate as yours or mine. Symbolically, if it is possible to sympathize and feel for a shadow, how can we deny the same for the person who has cast it? It is a haunting thought that while these characters are just dark masses on the screen, they may be all that is left of their ๏ฌ‚esh-and-blood inspirations. Ghosts of the River is a visual carnival that is worth seeing for the inspired spectacle alone.

Passion Pit’s sudden phenomenal success has Michael Angelakos reeling By Steve Palopoli

TALK ABOUT THE PASSION Njdibfm!Bohfmblpt! )dfoufs*!dbo!qspcbcmz! bggpse!b!eszfs!opx! uibu!Qbttjpo!Qju-! xijdi!qmbzt!uif!Cmbol! Npoebz-!jt!pof!pg!uif! ipuuftu!cboet!bspvoe/

ICHAEL Angelakos doesn’t care if you don’t believe the story of how he started Passion Pit. At this point, he pretty much expects you to not believe it. But he really did write the band’s first EP, 2007’s Chunk of Change, as a Valentine’s Day present for his girlfriend. “Yeah, everyone thinks it’s some kind of fabricated press story,” says Angelakos with a hint of righteous indignation. “And it’s so annoying, because honest to God it really isn’t. And also, that’s the most ridiculous story anyway. I could have made up a way better story. If I was going to make something up, I would have made up a pretty good one.” Increased cynicism is just one of the byproducts Angelakos is learning to deal with after Passion Pit’s sudden stardom. They were this year’s first real phenomenon, perhaps the biggest to come along in quite some time. It no doubt had a lot to do with the timing, as the Boston band’s debut album, Manners, became the epicenter of a retro-’80s explosion that had been primed by bands like MGMT and was fueled by a zeitgeist that had Bat for Lashes channeling Kate Bush on Two Suns and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs sounding like Blondie on It’s Blitz.

Angelakos is doing this interview from St. Louis, on a tour stop. His head is still more or less spinning, so while it seems incredible to the rest of the world that he’ll be playing San Jose’s relatively tiny Blank Club this week, it’s the huge gigs in this mostly sold-out tour that shock him—since the band had never even been on the road until a few months ago. “We’ve only been touring since February of this year. So it’s been kind of an eye-opening experience for us. We’re always surprised by how many people show up, and actually know the songs,” he says. And success has been a little nervewracking, too. “In a certain way it happened almost a little too quickly. Here we are playing as a band that’s been together for a few months, and everyone’s expecting a band that’s been around for a few years. So we’ve always been scrambling,” he says. He’s not even exactly sure how this all happened, he admits. Other than the first Passion Pit songs spreading through Emerson College, where he was a student, some best-of newspaper awards and media attention for their first single “Sleepyhead,” it does seem like a pop-culture blur even to the outside observer. It certainly didn’t have much to do with Angelakos’ ambition for

the project, which was next to nil. “We really didn’t do much of anything,” he says. “We really don’t try hard. At all.” And yet, how could Passion Pit not break big right now? It is by far the most obsessive and most brilliant music coming out of the current postDanceteria movement. Combining a relentlessly hyper and positive soundscape with lyrics that are deeply emotional and sometimes as sad as the music is happy, Passion Pit fuses everything that made large-scale ’80s pop great with exactly the kind of music that was made in opposition to it—personal, confessional indierock. It seems like a contradiction, but in Angelakos’ hands, it’s not. Full of unexpected sonic twists and turns—a chorus of childlike voices in “Little Secrets,” some kind of bell apocalypse in “Eyes As Candles”— Passion Pit seems as much mashup as straightforward songwriter (indeed, Angelakos believes Girl Talk “completely changed the way people have to play”). “I was described by one of my friends as a ‘maximalist,’” he says. “Everything is just completely over the top and intense, and really overwhelming. I used that for this project because I think it’s appropriate. In other music I write, I scale back.”

Considering the complexity of Passion Pit’s music, many fans would be surprised at Angelakos’ process—he wrote and laid down the music for “Sleepyhead” in two hours, writing the lyrics and recording the vocals on the spot at guitarist Ian Hulquist’s house a week later. Nor should his collaborators necessarily believe him when he says he’s prepared to record an album, as was the case with Manners. “I was certainly not prepared at all. I was lying to everyone, saying I was prepared,” he admits. “I went into the studio and just wrote it, because that’s kind of the way I’ve always done things. Everyone thought I had the whole record written when I went into the studio, and I had absolutely nothing. I had a few sketches from an earlier session, but that was about it.” Somehow, it all seems to work out. Again, he doesn’t exactly know how. “Five years from now, this music is going to make so much more sense to me than it does now,” he says. “I have no idea why I’m playing it.” PASSION PIT performs Monday (Oct. 12) at 8pm at the Blank Club, 44 S. Almaden Ave., San Jose. The show is sponsored by Channel 92.3. Tickets are $9.23. (408.29.BLANK)

If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to the bottom of this, little things you take for grantedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like being able to afford the bologna portion of your bologna sandwichâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;could become a really big deal. Suddenly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;grabbing something at the storeâ&#x20AC;? means running out fast enough to elude the fat security guard. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re way overdue for ďŹ guring out whether this man and his means are living apartâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;probably because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kinda jazzed by all the things money can buy, and feel guilty because of it. Sure, if this guy is on the level, just by being with him, you could eat daily at a ďŹ ne restaurant, and not because management is nice enough to feed you before your shift. Keep in mind, you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking down the bar with tiny binoculars to see which guy whipped out a platinum card. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a hardworking girl who fell for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;investorâ&#x20AC;? with no apparent means of supportâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;unless you count his daddy, supposedly a doctor with piles of money whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living like he just completed his residency to be a lawn doctor. Your boyfriend may have a trust fund of sorts (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trust me, Pops, this is the last time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to bail me outâ&#x20AC;?). Even if he has a permanent pipeline to serious family money, can you really respect a 31-year-old man

whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still living off Mommy and Daddy? After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it to bring clean water to poor villagers in Africa. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d guess that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day-trading, a profession that works for many like that old joke about how to make a small fortune in aviation (start with a big one). Unfortunately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human nature to keep believing that your big score is just around the cornerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the corner you hurry your girlfriend by when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to pass off the repo man as a valet with a tow truck. Appearances can be deceivingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially to girls too needy for love and fearful of disapproval to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yoohoo, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that red ďŹ&#x201A;ag over there?â&#x20AC;? Early on, you get information by giving it: talking about how you grew up and how you see money, and drawing his background and values out of him. You look for incongruities (especially outrageous ones) and ask about them until you get satisfactory answers. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you need to do nowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after laying out your feelings for him and your fears. If he explodes or just stonewalls, the truth is probably what you suspect: A fool and his lines of credit are soon parted, and sure, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to take your kids to the dentistâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as soon as you ďŹ nd a buyer for your left kidney.

But here, the whole ring thing is weird to me. If men and women are equals, how come the guy has to give the girl an engagement ring but nobody expects her to buy him engagement

golf clubs or an engagement boat? Even weirder is the impulse to hang on to the ring after the engagement is kaput. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a failed relationship, not a failed revenge plot. Acting vindictively says you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much in love as you were desperate to be loved. You are what you do, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a high road to take here, and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lead to Bennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pawn Shop.

Mallarmé wrote the following in a letter to a friend: “I don’t know which of my internal climates I should explore in order to find you and meet you.” I love that passage. It alludes to one of the central facts about the nature of reality: The quality of your consciousness is crucial in determining whether you’ll be able to attract the resources that are essential to your dreams coming true. In order to get what you want, you have to work on yourself at least as hard as you work on the world around you. This is always true, of course, but it’s especially true for you now, Aries.

IVjgjh(April 20–May 20): Is there anything in

your life that you don’t really want but nevertheless find it hard to part with? A situation or experience that gives you a perverse sense of comfort because of its familiarity, even though it has a steep emotional cost and doesn’t serve your higher dreams? If so, the coming week will be an excellent time to change your relationship with it. You will make dramatic progress if you brainstorm about how you could break up the stagnant energy that keeps you entranced and entrapped.

<Zb^c^(May 21–June 20): One of my New Age friends says she has it on good authority that the Seven Lords of Time will reconvene in their Himalayan sanctuary on Dec. 21, 2012. and reinvent the nature of time, as they last did back in 3114 B.C.E. I have no idea if that’s true or not, but if it is, I say “hallelujah!” We would all benefit from some big-time reinvention of time. But that happy event, even if it actually does come to pass, is still more than three years away. What to do in the meantime? Luckily, you Geminis now have major personal power to do some time reinvention of your own. To get the meditations rolling, ask yourself what three things you could do to stop fighting time and start loving it better. 8VcXZg(June 21–July 22): Soup is your metaphor for the week, Cancerian. Symbolically speaking, it’s the key to your personal power and a model for the approach you should take in everything you do. On the most basic level, you might want to eat some soup every day. That will make potent suggestions to your subconscious mind about how to mix lots of ingredients together so that their value and beauty as a totality are more than the sum of their parts. Not just in the kitchen, but in every area of your life, blend many little miscellaneous things into one big interesting thing. AZd(July 23–Aug. 22): Change your password.

Take a different way home. Ask a question you’ve never asked. Dream up a new nickname for yourself. Choose a new lucky number. Change the way you tell the story about an important event in your past. Make it a little more difficult for people to have you pegged. Eat a type of food you’ve never tried. Do the research necessary to discover why one of your opinions may be wrong. Add a new step to your grooming ritual. Feel appreciation for a person whose charms you’ve become numb to. Surprise yourself at least once a day.

K^g\d(Aug. 23–Sept. 22): One of the best modern Turkish poets was Seyfettin Bascillar, who worked as a meat inspector in New Jersey for many years before his death in 2002. Nobel Prize–winning poet Czeslaw Milosz lived in Berkeley, Calif., for over four decades while writing his books in Polish, his native tongue. Iceland’s great poet of the 20th century, Stephan G. Stephansson, lived in Canada most of his life but always wrote in Icelandic. These people remind me of what you’re going through: striving to do what comes natural and authentic in a situation very different from the place where you originally learned to be natural and authentic. The interesting fact of the matter is that this feeling of displacement could very well be the key to your success. A^WgV(Sept. 23–Oct. 22): The sun shines brighter on my new home. The old place had resemblances to a cave and was surrounded by tall trees. My new space is surrounded by a wide sky and drinks in the solar radiance from dawn to dusk. As you might expect, my 15 plants need to drink a lot more than they used to. The watering ritual at the old house used to come once a week, but now it’s every other day. According to my reading of the astrological omens, a comparable shift is occurring in your rhythm, Libra. Metaphorically speaking, more heat and light are coming your way.

HXdge^d(Oct. 23–Nov. 21): Amazingly enough, the

good deeds you do in the next 21 days could alone qualify you for a permanent exemption from hell. It seems God has cooked up some imminent tests that will give you a chance to garner some ridiculously sublime karma. What’s that you say? You don’t believe in either God or hell? Well then, interpret the opportunity this way: The good deeds you perform in the coming three weeks could practically ensure that the sins you’ve committed thus far in your life will not stain the world or be passed on as IOUs to the next generation.

HV\^iiVg^jh(Nov. 22–Dec. 21): In 1968, Aleksandr

Solzhenitsyn finished his book The Gulag Archipelago, a scorching indictment of the oppression that he and his countrymen suffered under the totalitarian regime of the Soviet Union. Banned for years, it was never formally published in his home country until 1989. Even after that, the new Russian government tried to control the teaching of history by suppressing texts like Solzhenitsyn’s. This year, all that changed. The Gulag Archipelago became required reading in Russian high schools. At last, the truth is officially available. (Maybe one day the equivalent will happen in the United States, with alternate histories by Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky finding their way into the curriculum.) I celebrate this breakthrough as a symbol of the events that are about to unfold in your personal life: the long-lost truth finally revealed.

8Veg^Xdgc(Dec. 22–Jan. 19): John, a colleague of

mine, is a skillful psychotherapist. His father is in a similar occupation, psychoanalysis. If you ask John whether his dad gave him a good understanding of the human psyche while he was growing up, John quotes the old maxim: “The shoemaker’s son has no shoes.” Is there any comparable theme in your own life, Capricorn? Some talent or knowledge or knack that should have been but was not a part of your inheritance; a natural gift you were somehow cheated out of in your early environment? If so, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to start recovering from your loss and getting the good stuff you have coming to you.

6fjVg^jh(Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Let’s imagine that

an independent filmmaker has been following you around, gathering footage for a movie based on the story of your life. This week he or she would face a dilemma. That’s because unexpected new subplots may arise, veering off in directions that seem to be far afield from the core themes. The acting of the central players won’t be bad or unskillful, but it might be out of character with what they’ve done before. And there could be anomalous intrusions that impinge on the main scenes, like a bug landing on your nose during an intense conversation. Yet I can’t help wondering if this chapter of the tale won’t be extra intriguing for just these reasons.

E^hXZh(Feb. 19–March 20): “Tenderness and rot /

share a border,” writes the U.S. Poet Laureate Kay Ryan in one of her poems. “And rot is an / aggressive neighbor / whose iridescence / keeps creeping over.” Your job in the coming week, Pisces, is to reinforce that border—with a triple-thick wall, if necessary—so that the rot cannot possibly ooze over and infect tenderness. It is especially important right now that the sweet, deep intimacy you dole out and stimulate will not get corrupted by falseness or sentimentality. I urge you to stir up the smartest affection you have ever created.

Nonetheless, you raise issues worth examining in the age of the Internet. Let’s start at the top. As you rightly presume, the answer to your first question is no. It’s well established legally that the creator of content owns the copyright. Prior to the 1976 Copyright Act, unpublished letters, which were the topic of the original column, couldn’t be published without the writer’s permission except in limited circumstances, and then only by the recipient. Anybody else was out of luck. After 1976, letters and other copyrightable works became subject to the Copyright Act’s “fair use” provision, which allows publication of short excerpts—usually. In the 1980s, reclusive author J.D. Salinger successfully sued to prevent the quoting and paraphrasing of his unpublished letters in a biography. The court felt the author’s right to determine first publication of his work tilted the fair use balance in Salinger’s favor. You wouldn’t have that problem quoting message board posts, which have already been published. But this is poorly charted territory; somebody might still sue. Vindication could cost you a lot. Your second question is trickier. If it’s your blog, can’t you publish whatever appears there? No. The law says, “Copyright . . . vests initially in the author or authors of the work.” Your blog’s comments section is merely the canvas on which the creative individual displays his genius. It’s as if you own a building and a graffiti artist has sprayed a brilliant original sonnet on your wall. You can repaint the wall, or tear down the building, but you can’t include the sonnet in a poetry collection. That brings us to your third question: how does a user agreement change things? Probably a lot, although few such agreements have been tested in court. The Straight Dope Message Board has one, which we’ll get back to. First let’s look at Facebook’s agreement, which created an uproar earlier this year. Facebook’s terms of use once included the following: “By posting User Content to any part of the Site, you automatically grant . . . to the Company an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute such User Content for any purpose,

commercial, advertising, or otherwise, on or in connection with the Site or the promotion thereof, to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such User Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing.” Goodness, one thinks. Am I granting first dibs on my kidneys, too? But then it got worse. Originally Facebook agreed that once you removed your content from its site, its license to your stuff expired. Last winter, however, Facebook deleted that provision, implying that once you posted something, Facebook controlled it forevermore. Users howled. Protesting innocence, the company revised the language, which now reads in part: “[Y]ou grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any . . . content that you post on or in connection with Facebook. . . . This . . . license ends when you delete your . . . content.” That restores the prior status quo, but the gist remains: anything you leave posted here is ours to do with as we will. The Straight Dope Message Board agreement has a similar clause: “You grant [our company] and its successors and assigns a nonexclusive irrevocable right to reuse your posting in any manner it or they see fit without notice or compensation to you.” Big difference: inclusion of “irrevocable.” That’s there because a message board thread is people talking to each other. If users later can withdraw their part of the conversation, what’s left becomes incomprehensible. So the irrevocability of the SDMB license arguably serves the greater good. Still, the SDMB’s user agreement, like Facebook’s, grants a license that on its face is pretty broad. We’re the soul of discretion, and no doubt so is Facebook. However, suppose our evil clones, the FUMB and Scumbook, took their collective content to Bangkok to —well, one shudders to think. Would the courts enforce the user agreements then? We’ll have to wait and find out.
