F70C3>4BÂź6A44=½4E4=<40=. Thank you for publishing last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article about Marin County Supervisor Steve Kinsey and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;greeningâ&#x20AC;? of Marin ( â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond the Trails,â&#x20AC;? Green Zone, Oct. 7). I use quotations around â&#x20AC;&#x153;greening,â&#x20AC;? because what Supervisor Kinsey is working on is not the typical greening that has prevailed in Marin (or most places) over the last century. Instead of focusing on trees and wetlands, this type of greening focuses on people and communities. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the people, not the trees, who are having the problem with sustainability. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the people, just as much as the trees, who are suffering the consequences. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time we turn our attention toward human behavior and realize that there is no such thing as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;environmentalâ&#x20AC;? problem. From deforestation to groundwater contamination to traffic congestion to sea level rise, there is a giant people problem at the coreâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the environment is a victim. Conservation alone will not solve our problems as long as basic human needs are not met, and environmental conditions will not improve unless we improve our

A4B8BCC740B?70;C Thank you for printing the arguments against the Novato Narrows highway widening project (Letters, Sept. 30). It is a shame that many public transit projects, like the SMART train, are subject to great debate and require a public vote in order to proceed, yet highway and road expansions proceed with much less scrutiny and public discourse. Our lives, and almost certainly the lives of our children and grandchildren, would be better if transit was the priority. Highway expansions enable us to carry on with our unsustainable driving habits. Higher gas prices are needed, but if that is hard to come by then we must think locally and resist the impulse to add asphalt to our landscape.

=>CC70C6DH8=1;02:5024 The Nov. 17 special election represents an unprecedented watershed moment for Cotati voters. One way lies George Barich, who has repeatedly exercised poor judgment, demonstrating an inability to listen to, work with, respect or represent others. His lack of respect for city staff and colleagues and for due processes of government, and his belligerent attitude, have alienated many. Cotati canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take any more of this! The other way: recall George Barich. Choose instead a candidate who is steady, sensible, down-to-earth and honest, with integrity, who has a keen sense of responsibility and a proven track record. Someone who has lived in Cotati for many years and knows the community well. Someone who listens and has a heart and cares. Linell Hardy fits the bill. She has lived in Cotati for 31 years, raised her family and run a business here. She has been a regular attendee at city council meetings, where her contributions are sensible, positive and to the point. She has been on the Planning Commission for two years and the chair since January 2009. She expresses her opinionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you know where she standsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but listens to different points of view and can work well with others to achieve a common goal. As a city council member she will be careful and considerate, forthright and reliable, with the prudent attitude to finances that the city needs right now.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Economics of Peaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; conference looks for a new model By Michael Shapiro

F

ake up, America! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck, wading through the muck of a society where cash is king, the odds favor the big winners and where even the election of a president who pledged to be progressive shows little promise of proactive change. Few in the country can envision a brighter future because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a rigorous framework for imagining one, say several speakers at next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Economics of Peace conference in Sonoma. We need a new American myth, and the Oct. 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;23 Economics of Peace conference hosted by the Praxis Peace Institute hopes to foster just that. The conference aims

to create an interactive environmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be solely speakers preaching from on highâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;where attendees can share ideas with leading progressive thinkers. Among the topics: social finance, slow money, green jobs, living wages, microcredit and bolstering local economies. With speakers including Indian activist and physicist Vandana Shiva, author Sam Keen, economics professor James Galbraith and North Bay writer Norman Solomon, the conference seeks to lay the foundation for a new economic order, one where people mean more than profits. The best way to do that, says Keen, is to replace Adam Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic myth that emerged from the industrial revolution with a 21st-century idea that elevates people and the environment above profit-making.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the end of the myth of Homo economicus,â&#x20AC;? Keen says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a myth of warfare, and economics follows the myth, money follows desire. If you think wealth equals worth and military equals strength, then the money follows those desires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to shift away from gross national product to gross universal well-being.â&#x20AC;? This is not a pie-in-the-sky idea, say Keen and other conference speakers who cite alternative currency systems and workerowned businesses here in the North Bay as models for economic evolution. It all starts with new ways of thinking, and the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to provide a compass for navigating the long road toward a more just economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to deconstruct our cultural myths about money and economics,â&#x20AC;? &(

Jazz eraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dorothy Parker laid to restâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; 21 years ago By Lacey Graham

side from the famous epitaph â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excuse My Dust,â&#x20AC;? Mrs. Dorothy Parker later asked that her gravestone be marked by the words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is on me.â&#x20AC;? The snappy female wit, poet, screenwriter and critic who charmed and chagrined New York in the 1920s endured four suicide attempts, a handful of lousy lovers, alcoholism and Connecticut, outlasting most of her vicious circle until she died of a heart attack at the age of 73. A wisecracker since childhood, she refused to call her stepmother anything affectionate and instead openly referred to her as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the housekeeper.â&#x20AC;? Her education over at age 13, she played piano to support herself until she began selling poems and short stories. Hired on by the New Yorker magazine by its second issue, her first book of poems sold 47,000 copies. She held court at the Algonquin Round Table. She hung out in whorehouses with Robert Benchley. She wrote the Academy Award-nominated screenplay for A Star Is Born. She survived a back-alley abortion. She married the same man twice even while declaring him to be as â&#x20AC;&#x153;queer as a billy goat.â&#x20AC;? And in 1967, the modern iconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart stopped, and she was lost. No, literally. They lost her. For 21 years. Parker left her estate to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Foundation. She had never met Dr. King, but greatly admired his passionate civil rights dedication. After being cremated, her ashes sat on the shelves of Ferncliff Crematory in Hartsdale, N.Y. Six years later, the ashes were sent to her lawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office on Wall Street. The firm had no idea what should be done with them, and so Dorothy Parker was left in a plain gray filing cabinet for the next 15 years. Perhaps blame should fall on a bitter Lillian Hellman. The playwright of The Little Foxes was blacklisted by Hollywood after she refused to name names before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1950, as was Parker. Parker named Hellman as her literary executor, yet after throwing Parker a gala funeral in which she herself starred, Hellman failed to claim Dorothyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ashes from Ferncliff. Hellman remained resentful that her

late best friend did not leave her a large sum of money and notably claimed of Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She must have been drunk when she did it.â&#x20AC;? Hellman lost her pursuit of Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s royalties in 1972. After a total of 21 years, the New Yorker famous for her sharp tongue and affection for drink was moved to Baltimore when the NAACP (bequeathed the Parker estate in the will of Martin Luther King Jr.) took hold of the ashes and finally memorialized Mrs. Parker on Oct. 20, 1988, with a plaque inside the NAACP gardens. The plaque generously nods at Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistent advocacy of social justice achievements. It reads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here lie the ashes of Dorothy Parker (1893â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1967). Humorist, writer, critic, defender of human and civil rights. For her epitaph she suggested â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Excuse My Dust.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This memorial garden is dedicated to her noble spirit which celebrated the oneness of humankind, and to the bonds of everlasting friendship between black and Jewish people.â&#x20AC;? It is nothing less than tragic that such a force of literary history was so literally forgotten. Dorothy Parker, she of the biting wit and the blazing critiques, an editorial fatale of the Flapper Era, among the early editors of CondĂŠ Nast, was at last laid to rest in the same year that Bon Joviâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bad Medicineâ&#x20AC;? hit No. 1 on the charts. The irony. Of herself, she had much to say, but her most mistaken allegation would have to be any doubt of leaving an impression, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m never going to be famous,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My name will never be writ large on the roster of Those Who Do Things. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do any thing. Not one single thing. I used to bite my nails, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even do that any more.â&#x20AC;?

Parker endured four suicide attempts, a handful of lousy lovers, alcoholism and Connecticut.

says conference organizer Georgia Kelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until we understand how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re captive within cultural myths, we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to make changes.â&#x20AC;? Keen and Kelly agree that sometimes the best way to envision a new paradigm is to ask questions. The key question, Kelly says, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;what type of economic relationships support social justice, environmental sustainability and peace?â&#x20AC;? Last year Kelly led a group to visit the MondragĂłn Cooperative Corporation (MCC) centered in Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basque region, whose businesses employ more than 100,000 people. On the trip, she found a system where workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs are paramount. And hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the revelatory part: making workers a top priority over shareholders led the businesses to thrive in good times and survive the downturns. Kelly learned about a business that may have shut down had it not been part of the MCC. After three days of meetings, the employee-owners agreed that 20 percent of the workforce would leave their jobs for a year, and receive a substantial percentage of their regular pay. She says the solution worked because the worker/co-owners are conscious of protecting themselves while keeping an eye on the bottom line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, at MondragĂłn,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they always put people before profit.â&#x20AC;? Amazingly, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no unemployment within the MondragĂłn cooperative. Zero, nada, zilch. People sometimes have to shift jobs or cut hours, but there are no Fridayafternoon pink slips and security escorts out the side door. Founded in 1956 by Father Don Jose Arizmendi, a Basque Catholic priest, the MondragĂłn cooperatives today comprise more than a hundred worker-owned businesses, as well as more than a hundred subsidiaries that MCC has purchased and hopes to convert. In 2007, MCC, now the largest corporation in the Basque region and seventh largest in Spain, according to Wikipedia, generated revenues of more than $24 billion. We have the seedlings of new business models here in the Bay Area as well, Kelly says, citing such worker-owned businesses as Alvarado Street Bakery, a cooperative in Petaluma, and Arizmendi Bakery in San Francisco, named for MCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Employees are paid living wages,â&#x20AC;? Kelly says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very successful.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case for millions of manufacturing and service workers in the United States today, says West Marin activist Norman Solomon, author of War Made Easy and Made Love, Got War. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many forces trying to block the living wage, and these forces are allied against meeting human needs, because lavish military spending has taken on a life of its own,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that our priority is warfare not healthcare,â&#x20AC;? says Solomon, who visited Afghanistan during the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels far away but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nearby. Sonoma County taxpayers have already sent $1.6 billion overseasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s billion with a bâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think what you could do with that money!â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Palm Drive Hospital [a private hospital in Sebastopol] needed just $3 million to stave off bankruptcy. The state of California has sent $100 billion in

this decade for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. If we could get a refund, then the big problem of the state legislature would be what to do with a humongous surplus.â&#x20AC;? OK, so the environment is on the verge of collapse, the economy is in free fall and human survival, at least the life weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re accustomed to with abundant food, secure shelter, plasma TVs and videos on demand, is on the precipice. So why the hell arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t people getting up right now, going to their windows, sticking their heads out and yelling, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m mad as hell and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to take this anymore?â&#x20AC;? Simple, says Solomon. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re numb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to overcome the numbing processâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the conference can help us move beyond numbing, can be a catalyst,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot be on boom-bust election cycles. We need a long-term social movement. At the conference, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll move beyond isolation and away from the computer screen.â&#x20AC;? Solomon quotes Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an assumption that tomorrow is another word for today.â&#x20AC;? Translation: the future can be better if only we dare to dream it. Of course, sheer imagination, no matter how bold, is just the first step. So the conference will consider new economic models, such as complementary currencies, in which goods and services are bought and sold without dollars or Euros or yen. In essence, complementary currencies such as the Toronto Dollar donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supplant the dominant monetary economy; they provide an alternative way of exchanging goods and keep the â&#x20AC;&#x153;moneyâ&#x20AC;? in the local community. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hypothetical example of how it works: Say youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a massage therapist in Sonoma County. You could charge 100 credits, call them Sonoma Dollars, for a massage. Then you could spend those credits with other members of the network. For example, you could use SD5 (five Sonoma Dollars) to buy a dozen eggs at Laguna Farms and SD10 to buy goat cheese at Redwood Hill. Safeway wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept this currency, but the funds stay in the community and support local merchants. This is just one way to get past what author David Korten says is a myth of choice between capitalism and communism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are alternate models of elite ruleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we need a Main Street economy,â&#x20AC;? he says, charging that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic system is â&#x20AC;&#x153;designed to increase the concentration of wealth, and is foundational to every dysfunction in society.â&#x20AC;? Economics professor James Galbraith thinks that before we can move forward, we need to look back at how the United States responded to the banking crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a full investigation of the complex forces behind the crisis,â&#x20AC;? he says. Though banks have been stabilized, he asserts that they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been fixed, as regulation has been lax. The government has been more concerned with â&#x20AC;&#x153;reassuring the public that banks are not in troubleâ&#x20AC;? than in taking the measures required to get banks back on solid financial ground, Galbraith says. Like many progressives, Korten is discouraged but not surprised by President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coddling of Wall Street and the banking industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a testament to Wall Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s control of the political system,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a hell of a lot of work to do. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get there with marginal reformsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat a cancer with a Band-Aid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening with climate change, single-payer healthcare and so much else is

a result of Wall Street owning the political system,â&#x20AC;? Korten says. â&#x20AC;?Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to roll up our shirtsleeves, be clear about how big the job is and get to work.â&#x20AC;? In a talk he gave last weekend in Portland, Korten said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our existing economic system does very well what it was designed by Wall Street interests to do: generate enormous fees and bonuses for Wall Street money managers. It must be replaced by a new economy designed to serve the needs of people, community and earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living systems.â&#x20AC;?

So where to begin? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We start,â&#x20AC;? Korten says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with a recognition that the old economy is based on a false premise, the premise that we live in a world of open frontiers with endless, abundant resources free for the taking. We are only now awakening to the reality that we humans are passengers on a living spaceship on which everything must be continuously reused and recycled, and nothing can be thrown away.â&#x20AC;? To move from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;old suicide economyâ&#x20AC;? to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;new living economy,â&#x20AC;? Korten cites three principles: ecological balance, shared prosperity and â&#x20AC;&#x153;living democracyâ&#x20AC;? with civic engagement including local decision-making and fair trade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The local living market economies we must now create bear substantial resemblance to the Main Street economies many of us knew as we were growing up in the 1950s, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s,â&#x20AC;? Korten says. This is in marked contrast to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shopping system, in which much of the money spent, at places like WalMart, leaves the local economy. Praxisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Georgia Kelly notes that Wal-Mart has recently touted its â&#x20AC;&#x153;green practices,â&#x20AC;? but she says a few environmental measures arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This ignores the larger question of sustainability and lets them off the hook. Sustainability is bigger than green business because it includes social justice and a living wage.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question,â&#x20AC;? Sam Keen says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is do we have the will to survive? Nobody said this experiment with two-legged beings was destined to succeed. The best we can do is to take a run at it.â&#x20AC;? The Economics of Peace conference is slated for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, Oct. 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 23, at various Sonoma venues, including the Sebastiani Theater and Veterans Memorial Building. Full conference fee is $650; single-day passes, $150.

The Q microbe dines on waste to make methanol By Juliane Poirier

8

n a curious scene from the bestselling memoir Three Cups of Tea, humanitarian protagonist Greg Mortensonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;himself no stranger to Third World savvyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; highlights a Pakistani villagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction to a herd animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defecation in the road. Almost the very moment the yak drops its waste on the ground, a woman is on all fours scooping up the droppings, then deftly slapping them on a nearby wall where they stick fast. Later, the dried dung will be used as fuel for a cooking fire. In the treeless mountains of Northern Pakistan, people preserve what cost-effective fuels nature provides. Yak scat is precious there. In the Bay Area, herd animal excrement can appear no more precious or useful than what people flush from toilet to treatment plants for processing. But that human waste not broken down contributes to sludgeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;toxic for the environment and costly to get rid of. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slap fecal solids on a wall and burn them later, Third Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style (although sludge does at times get incinerated). But with a new green technology, recycled waste may help create alternative fuel for our carsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and saving on the operation costs of water treatment facilities. Entrepreneurs in Massachusetts, collaborating with green technology waste recyclers in Israel, have found a way to, in their words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;turn poop to petrolâ&#x20AC;? at water-treatment plants. Their sustainable technology promises to help treatment plants run more cost-effectively, greatly reduce production of sludge and create ethanol with extraordinary efficiency. This breakthrough is all thanks to a little something University of Massachusetts Amherst researcher Sue Lesthine scooped up from the dirt at Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quabbin Reservoir: a microbe she dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Q.â&#x20AC;? Remarkably, it eats almost any nonfood matter and produces cellulosic ethanol in a single step. Jeff Hausthor, a cofounder of Qteros, a venture capital energy company formed around the Q microbe, explains that Lesthine had long studied microbes to better understand how organisms efficiently break down in the woods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After 25 years of searching the world for microbes,â&#x20AC;? Hausthor said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;she came across one that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

behaving like the others. It was producing ethanol, which is odd.â&#x20AC;? Four years and 45 green-collar jobs later, Qteros is busy collaborating with Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Applied CleanTech (ACT) to revolutionize methodology at water treatment plants. Applied CleanTech recycles raw materials into alternative energy sources including feedstock, the stuff eaten by microbes or burned for use in alternative-energy production. The feedstock ACT extracts from solid waste is lignin-free. When Q microbe eats this unique feedstock, it produces ethanol at an efficiency rate of 90 to 95 percent. According to Hausthor, the ACT feedstockcreating process is already in use at five plants around the world, including in Ohio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just for the ACT process, for the making of the cellulose [feedstock],â&#x20AC;? said Hausthor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tested the material and found it works very well with the Q microbe. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re building a demonstration facility and then taking calls from municipalities interested in our green technology. It can provide a valueadded product for water-treatment waste facilities.â&#x20AC;? According to Hausthor, this technology will make treatment plants significantly more efficient and less costly because they can either sell the ethanol they produce or use it to run the facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it will help save the world,â&#x20AC;? Hausthor adds, almost offhandedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making corn ethanol, and you have to make it where the corn is. Here, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it where the people and the cars are.â&#x20AC;? (That does describe Boston, at least in a few of the ways it differs from Northern Pakistan.) The two collaborating technology companies claim that in addition to producing ethanol, the treatment facility, using the ACT technology for extracting biosolids from raw sewage, is expected to reduce sludge formation by up to 75 percent, meaning a potential reduction in methane gas produced by untreated sludge. On-site ethanol production would provide reduction in GHG emissions, and a more efficient production method would reduce energy inputs. According to Hausthor, this new green technology will be commercially available for use in water treatment plants by 2011.

We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slap fecal solids on a wall and burn them later, Third Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style.

7T]7dbQP]Sah Birth, death, surrogacy and mayhem in the coop By Ari Le Vaux

C

wo of our hens recently got broody. While the other two kept up their standard schedules of scratching around, chasing bugs and rolling in the dust, Black â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blue, a sweet little bantam, and Annabelle, a tough orange buff Orpington, stopped laying eggs and glued themselves to their nesting box. Once in a while Baldy or Chicken Hawk came in to lay an egg, forfeiting their creation to the broody girls, who used their beaks and claws to roll the new egg onto their pile. They shared this pile, sitting side by side, sometimes with their wings wrapped around each other. They wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave the nest to eat or drink, so I put food and water dishes next to the nesting box. With no cock in the flock to fertilize the eggs, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to hatch. So despite the broody girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; protests, I collected the eggs as usual. Annabelle, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normally skittish, grew ballsy

in her broodishness, and not only sat her ground but pecked at my hand and clucked bloody murder as I took her eggs. I left them a golf ball, which they willingly incubated. Our neighbor, Dick, who has a cock in his flock, took care of our hens for a few days while we went camping. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You got some broody hens,â&#x20AC;? he said when we returned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Want some fertile eggs for them to sit on?â&#x20AC;? A few days later, Dick brought over 18 eggs. It seemed like too many, but he said some wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hatch, some would die trying, some would die young and some would be roostersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and all roosters, except perhaps one, are destined for the pot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The eggs will hatch exactly three weeks after you put them out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you put them out in the morning, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hatch in the morning.â&#x20AC;? We decided on a morning hatching. Since baby chicks are sensitive to cold, hatching around 10am would give them a whole day to warm up. I marked the fertilized eggs with a Sharpie so I

could distinguish them from the unfertilized eggs Chicken Hawk and Baldy would lay, which I would continue to collect. Eighteen eggs made quite a pile, even for these dedicated hens. For three weeks they sat with gritty determination, diligently rotating their charges. One egg broke after two weeks. There was a baby chick inside. Baldy, who wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t broody, began spending more time in the coop in solidarity. That left Chicken Hawk to pass her days outside, in solitude. On the morning of the appointed day, I went to the coop and, sure enough, heard a chorus of little peeps. Annabelle and Black â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blue were making clucking sounds, which Dick says give encouragement to hatching chicks. The new moms looked bewildered, constantly standing up to check on the remaining eggs, poking around with their beaks to keep track of the darting peepers, who at times were under them, at times walked on top of them and sometimes hid in the coopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. Three chicks hatched successfully. &THE BOHEMIAN

Three died while hatching, perhaps stepped on by the confused hens. The rest never hatched, and when I broke them open the next day there was nothing inside but normal egg, quite stinky. Dick, apparently, has a lazy cock. Tragedy struck later on hatching day. I found one of the peepers floating in the water dish Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put in the coop. Cursing my idiocy, I examined the chick. It was the bright yellow one, the same color as Annabelle. It was limp, soggy and motionless. Since there was no trace of rigor mortis, I figured it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been dead long, and commenced CPR. This being my first attempt at chicken CPR, I was kind of winging it. Sometimes my compressions forced air through the chickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal chords, causing it to peep, which got my hopes up, but the chick stayed dead. Then there were twoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one for each broody hen. Contrary to what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard might happen, neither got jealous. As long as each one had a peep under her belly, both hens seemed content. I kept the coop closed so the peepers would stay inside. Chicken Hawk and Baldy were doting aunts, sitting on the ground just outside the coop walls. At night, all six birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;four hens and two chicksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;piled into one nesting box. The co-parenting seems to be working. Annabelle is a bit spastic, sometimes stepping on the peepers, and she can be aggressive in defending the chicks. Black â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blue is as peaceful and sweet as ever, but a little spacey. Per Dickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been feeding them ground oats, and I made a trip to the feed store to buy a chick-safe water dispenser. At the store, there was a single chick for sale in a bin that in the early summer was full of them. The chick was yellow-orange, Annabelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s color, like the one that died. I made the impulse purchase for $2. At home, I removed the two recent hatchlings. My plan was to get the mamas in a panic over their missing chicks, and then return the two chicks plus the new one, in the hope that they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice. They noticed. Black â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blue was cool with the new chick, but Annabelle went after the intruder. The new chick was terrified of Annabelle, rightly so, and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have lasted long, so I kicked Annabelle out of the coop. Then the coop became peaceful, with the three chicks snuggling under Black â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blue, who puffed and preened her feathers and clucked with contentment. Annabelle stalked the coopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perimeter, clucking angrily. A few hours later, I attempted a trial reintroduction. As Annabelle entered the coop, the new girl burrowed deep under Black â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belly. The other chicks remained unconcerned. Annabelle settled down in the nesting box. There was uneasy peace in the coop, but the new chick stayed hidden. An hour later, I saw the new chick poking her face out from under Annabelle, their feathers matching perfectly. The new chick on the block was in.

C84AA0A403H 5>A?A8<4C8<4 he melons are ripe, the strawberries are sweet, and the newly ground cornmeal is as natural and as organic as it gets. But the smoked onions are to die for. At least, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charismatic chef Emeril Lagasse thought when he tasted them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emeril went crazy for our smoked onions,â&#x20AC;? Evie Truxaw said on a recent Friday afternoon at Tierra Vegetablesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roadside stand on Airport Boulevard in Santa Rosa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After he tasted them, he invited us to be on his show.â&#x20AC;? Truxaw and her sister-in-law, Lee James, who own Tierra along with Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother and Evieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband, Wayne, were recently taped for nine hours at the farm and in Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen. The ďŹ rst week of November, the two women will appear on Lagasseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show Emeril Green that airs on Discovery Channelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eco-lifestyle network Planet Green.

T

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled, to say the least. Wayne James wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be on the show, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sulking. The New York Times ran a big, beautiful photo of him striding barefoot across his ďŹ elds not long ago, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already had his 15 minutes of fame.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were nervous, and we really worried,â&#x20AC;? Evie said while she worked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never had TV at Tierra before. We need not have been so worried. Everyone on the crew was really nice to us. They were normal. Emeril was normal, too. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big supporter of local farms, and he was really impressed with Tierra.â&#x20AC;? Sonoma County shoppers have long been impressed with Tierraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diversity of fruits and vegetables. On an early October weekend, shoppers were lined up to buy eggplant, tomatillos, beets, carrots, broccoli, cauliďŹ&#x201A;ower, lettuce and ďŹ ve different kinds of autumn squashes: butternut, delicata, spaghetti, acorn and pumpkin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time of the year,â&#x20AC;? Evie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I call it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Great Divide.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already in fall, of course, and fall vegetables are here in abundance, but summer vegetables are still coming in strong. Wayne and I have been living on winter quash, potatoes and chiles. I could eat them every night.â&#x20AC;? Evie, Wayne and Lee arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting rich at Tierra, but they love the farming lifestyle and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re clearly stoked by the recent attention from Emeril Lagasse. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delighted, too, that Sonoma County is garnering national attention. Moreover, fame hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone to their heads. Wayne works as hard as ever. Lee continues to make her delicious strawberry-chipotle chile jam, as well as the smoked onions that brought her and Evie an invitation to Lagasseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. Evie still gives customers practical advice about cooking. When one shopper asked how to prepare acorn squash, she described all the steps: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cut off the ends, slice the squash in half, take out the seeds, put olive oil on the outside and cook face down in a pan for 45 minutes at 300 degrees,â&#x20AC;? she said. Evie Truxaw just might be ready for prime time. You can see her on TV or in real life down on the farm ďŹ ve days a week. Tierra Vegetables Farm Stand, 651 Airport Blvd., Santa Rosa. Open Tuesday-Friday, 11am to 6pm; Saturday, 10am to 4pm. 707.837.8366. www.tierravegetables.com.

:8=34BC2D? hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organically grown coffee. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shade-grown coffee that preserves forest habitat for wildlife. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair Trade coffee that ensures workers are paid a fair wage. But Chidoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blend from San Rafaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Equator Estate Coffee & Teas is in a league of its own in terms of social consciousness. Coffee is supposed to be stimulating, but a cup of java thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspiring is something quite different.

T

The medium-bodied blend of premium beans from Zimbabwe, Rwanda and Kenya is named after Zimbabwean activist Chido Govero, a young woman who lost her mother to AIDS when she was eight. She never knew her father, and found herself caring for her ailing grandmother and young brother. To support her family, she dropped out of elementary school to work in the ďŹ elds around her village. In order to be able to live on her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land, Govero had to endure abuse at the hands of her uncle and cousin. Meanwhile, at nearby Africa University, researcher Margaret Tagwira began experimenting with mushroom farming on agricultural waste as a way to provide proteinrich food and business opportunities for poor rural communities. Partnering with Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives (ZERI), an organization that seeks to alleviate basic human needs with available local resources, Tagwira launched a mushroom-farming training program for orphans at the university. Govero was one of the ďŹ rst to participate. After the training, students returned to their villages knowing not only how to feed themselves but also how to earn money through sales in local markets. In time, many of these industrious girls married and started families of their own. Of the 15 girls who started the program, only Govero remained single. Tagwira and her husband decided to adopt her. Govero quickly advanced through school and learned more about mushroom farming. The ZERI Foundation furthered her education and sent her to Colombia, India, Kenya and elsewhere to teach impoverished orphans like her how to farm a valuable, sustaining crop using readily available waste products. Today, many of the communities Govero helped train are self-sufďŹ cient in protein without any inputs from the outside. Tagwira is now pursuing a doctorate in food and nutrition based on her experiences. Govero has taken her message to Marin City to teach unemployed youth about the virtues of mushroom farming as a tool for job creation, healthy food production and reducing waste at local landďŹ lls. She also went on to write a book about her experiences (The Future of Hope: Message from an African Orphan to a World in Crisis), and now works in a Zimbabwean village. Her plan is to spread her self-help know-how throughout Africa to create jobs and alleviate hunger using what is locally available. Raise a cup to Govero and Equator Estate Coffees and Teas. One hundred percent of proďŹ ts from the sale of Chidoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blend go to support the ZERI Foundation and Goveroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work with orphan girls in coffee-producing countries around the world. Drinking a cup of Chidoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blend gives me a feel-good buzz that has nothing to do with caffeine. For more information, go to www.equatorcoffees.com.

@D6?9 Âś;Âś @=6A

F8=4AH6D834

C8CDBE8=4H0A3B verybody is talking about it, but nobody is sure how much everybody else is doing it. Even so, nearly everybody seems to be convinced they need more of it. Yes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about social media. As soon as the ďŹ rst winery was â&#x20AC;&#x153;friended,â&#x20AC;? hand-wringing wine critics and industry wonks, convinced that tech-saturated young wine drinkers would soon do their winetasting with a wireless app, reached through the digital curtain and found . . . each other.

E

Within this hall of mirrors, some wineries are using technology to hook up with wine buffs in real time. Meet Titus TV Harvest Live, which allows viewers to log in to live broadcasts twice a day during a week of crush, follow them as they pick in the morning, on to the crushpad and even take a peek at the drama of shoveling out a tank. They can join a chat room, comment, argue with each other and ask questions. To get the best angle on this development, I actually had to fold up the laptop and hit the Silverado Trail. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing slickly mediated about family-owned Titus Vineyards, an old-fashioned barn-and-vineyard operation, its ofďŹ ce the upstairs of a farmhouse. Chappellet winemaker Philip Titus handles cellar operations, while brother Eric Titus runs vineyard and sales matters. On a recent Thursday, I joined Titus for its 3pm show at a folding table in the vineyard, by the Napa River. The ďŹ lm crew, a droll young South Carolinian couple, had a camera and plywood command center strapped into the back of a pickup truck. Two laptops and a microphone or two did the trickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the signal was sent across the vineyard to the house, where via Ustream.tv it went to dozens of viewers and chat room attendees; the morning was better-attended, by up to 1,500 viewers. Eric Titus began with an overview of their location under Glass Mountain, source of the plentiful obsidian that litters the vineyard ďŹ&#x201A;oor, then launched into a discussion on ampelography, detailing the petiolar sinuses and venation of Cabernet grape leaves. One viewer wanted to know, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would these grapes taste good, like grapes in a grocery store?â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, slightly off-camera, this reviewer sipped from his glass, noting that the 2007 Napa Valley Zinfandel ($27) opened with charred oak, while ďŹ&#x201A;avors of licorice and brambleberry liqueur held their own, ďŹ nishing with typical soft, round Napa tannin; notes of spice cake and gingerbread developed later in this really likable Zin. A double-trouble blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, the 2005 Lot 1 ($60) showed ďŹ&#x201A;oral violet and blueberry aromatics, barbecue char, tobacco and dried plum; the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon ($63) showed crisp cassis and red berry fruit, accented with cigar wrapper and dust. The webcast wrapped up, and the crew broke the set and folded it into the pickup. While we checked out the 2008 Sauvignon Blanc ($20)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;butterscotch and pear cocktail, a slice of Meyer lemon cake; a tasty sip that hollers Napa SB, without the cloying crackleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Christophe mused on the efďŹ cacy of social media tools. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy using all availableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Tweeting, friending, uploadingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but admits no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite sure what works. At least we know that when faraway wine surfers petition the looking glass of interactive wine media with their questions, questions, questions, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ nd real folks, ready with answers.

We proudly introduce this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster of Boho Award winners, leaders in our arts community, visionaries one and all By Gretchen Giles

C

he Boho Awards, now in their 12th year, are among our editorial teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual highlights. When considering which people and institutions in the North Bay have most contributed to the rich cultural life we share, it is a regular pleasure to simply survey the vast field from which we can draw. There are so many deserving individuals and groups doing good work in the arts that this is a delicious burden. Careful to choose from all three counties, we like to mix up our picks, from the solitary teacher who has touched hundreds of lives but may not be known to a larger audience, to those professional houses that bring droves through their doors each week. Over the past decade, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built a solid roster of winners, a growing list that truly reflects a deep devotion to utilizing the arts to enrich all of our lives.

This year, we ask you to help us celebrate the achievements of five winners. Promoter Laurie Schaeffer has brought pleasure and thoughtfulness to thousands of concert-goers a handful at a time with her innovative house concert series currently on at the intimate and private Studio E facility. Artists Patrick Amiot and Brigitte Laurent have turned all of Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Florence Avenue into an outdoor art gallery while raising thousands of dollars for area schools. Margie Belrose has been teaching dance and theater to students since the early 1960s, gradually transforming her San Rafael space, a former church, into an arts sanctuary that thrums with dinner theater and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. Amy Pinto and Brent Lindsay of the Imaginist Theatre Collective reach across language lines to include the Latino community while serving kids and families and

anyone interested in provocative stagecraft. Arts facilitator Anne Trinca has ensured that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to do in Napa than just eat and drink, starting with the post-feminist Pearl Necklace zine she helped produce, through the brick-and-mortar sizzle of the Nest and continuing now with a virtual spot for Napa County residents interested in DIY culture, craft and fine art to congregate. These folks rock. We fete our winners this year on Wednesday, Oct. 21, in a free reception that is open to the public at the Hopmonk Tavern (230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol), from 5:30pm to 7pm. Please consider joining us and staying on for the free, all-ages North Bay Music Awards (NORBAYs) event that follows. This is a stellar night for the arts, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so honored to help ref lect all of this work and wisdom to you. See you at the Hopmonk!

THE BOHEMIAN



ne night in 1976, Laurie Schaeffer was talking with folk songwriter Kate Wolf after a concert in Sonoma County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, Laurie,â&#x20AC;? Wolf asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;are you a musician?â&#x20AC;? Schaeffer, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just given up the piano, said no. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well,â&#x20AC;? Wolf persisted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;what are you good at?â&#x20AC;? Schaeffer sputtered something about being a good organizer. Wolf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reply has been a guiding mantra for the music fan and concert promoter ever since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a need for people like you in the music world,â&#x20AC;? Wolf said. For the last 12 years, Schaeffer has been honoring the late singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice by not only bringing nationally known singer-songwriters to Sonoma County, but also by creating for them what she calls a â&#x20AC;&#x153;listening roomâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;an intimate, mannerly environment where performer and audience can commune through storytelling, nuance and lyrics. For her tireless efforts, from her first concerts at

private houses to the last five years at Studio E in Sebastopol, we are glad to make her a recipient of a Boho Award this year. Recalling the nearly 200 concerts sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosted with luminaries like Mary Gauthier, Fred Eaglesmith, Todd Snider, Jimmy LaFave, Billy Joe Shaver, Nina Gerber, Girlyman and Chip Taylor, the 54-year-old music fan says simply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing. I can be involved without having to play. I just have to clap.â&#x20AC;? Schaeffer grew up in Los Angeles worshipping Jethro Tull and going to enormous stadium concerts; she came to Sonoma County for college in 1975 and met her future business partner, Greg Abel. The two trekked around to see songwriters like Steve Goodman, Rodney Crowell and Rosanne Cash. Her love for music (Schaefferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online username is â&#x20AC;&#x153;musicfanâ&#x20AC;?) blossomed into a love for lyrics, especially those of John Prine and a growing movement of acoustic performers. Schaeffer booked her first concert at the home of KRCB-FM program director Robin Pressman, as a benefit for the station, with Cheryl Wheeler. Wheeler, Schaeffer says, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;very reluctantâ&#x20AC;? to perform at a house, but the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magic set the tone for hundreds of concerts to come. Wheeler loved it. The crowd loved it. For Schaeffer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was one of the most exciting days of my whole life.â&#x20AC;? It also started a 12-year journey of booking acoustic performers, for whom stories are more important than guitar solos. At venues such as the Dance Palace in Point Reyes, the former New College and even a barbecue joint in Santa Rosa, Schaefferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s created a quiet environment for musicians to share songs with an appreciative audience. Five years ago, when the owners of the former Powerhouse Brewing Company in Sebastopol sold the building and Schaeffer was once again on the hunt for a venue, she got a call from Jeff Martin, who had just bought a place called Studio E. Schaeffer had been to Studio E, a small recording studio buzzed about for hosting Tom Waits rehearsals and notorious for its Deadhead parties (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild, crazy, lots of drugs and alcohol,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Absolutely packed. They were legendaryâ&#x20AC;?), and she was skeptical at first. She had one question: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have chairs?â&#x20AC;? Martin said he was getting some. Schaeffer brought in soundman Peter Viehoever (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to leave home without himâ&#x20AC;?), and the little wooden 100-seat cottage in the middle of an apple orchard quickly became the place. Word spread throughout the folk community. Fans began showing up, trusting the music to be good. Artists who hear about the venue are happy to turn the volume down to experience the rural splendor. And always at the front door, near the old wood stove, is Schaeffer, welcoming and bidding farewell to fellow fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people may go to church,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but live music has saved me and has given me so much pleasure in my life. And not only does it give me pleasure, but I love seeing people leave the concerts, to see how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just become enlightened as well. Enlightened? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, that might be the wrong word. But just happy. Feeling better than they did when they came in.â&#x20AC;? To learn more, go to www.northbaylive.com.

Given the mall and chain giants, why would you go to a family owned, family operated appliance, cabinet and countertop store today? Probably because it’s family owned, because it is run by the very people who own it. The words honor, accountability and respect ring a bell? The big chain stores can overwhelm you with long shelves and huge inventories, but are you willing to deal with a faceless entity and have an extended warranty contract shoved down your throat by a stranger whose job is at steak if he or she doesn't meet that week's quota? "We joined a world wide buying group quite a few years ago, so that we could stay competitive in our prices," explains TeeVax president, Ed Montague. “Being small, we have the ability to change quickly, to shift out product line when we find something that delivers more of what our customers want and need." What the customer wants and needs; that's the theme that extends through TeeVax. Mike Montague says that building a good rapport with the customer is the key to survival in a small business. "If I put your needs ahead of my own, you are going to tell your friends and family and eventually, our needs will be met too." The Montague family and loyal staff is here to find solutions to your needs from remodeling your kitchen or bathroom to replacing your dishwasher or refrigerator. All backed by the award winning TeeVax service center. Under promise; over deliver. It's nice to find real people, real service and real value. Call it old fashioned, but it's the TeeVax way.

Patrick Amiot and Brigitte Laurent give new life to old things By Suzanne Daly

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to miss the giant Holstein cow in the fields along Highway 12, west of Santa Rosa. Drivers do a double take, not quite sure if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hormones in the grain or the pungent fertilizers that account for the jumbo bovine. Any confusion is laid to rest as they enter Sebastopol and spy a sculpture of an oversized fisherman astride his fish with eyes the size of hubcaps. In fact, they are hubcaps, specifically Triumph hubcaps, gifted by an elderly man to the artist. Objects destined for the dump are integral to the junk-art sculptures created by Patrick Amiot and meticulously painted and brought to life by his wife, Brigitte Laurent. The wide array of larger-than-life, brightly colored figures has become synonymous with the must-see sites in Sebastopol. A gopher holds a spade at the hardware store, and at Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly Media, a tarsier, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mascot, graces the front of the office buildings. Then there is Florence

Avenue, perhaps the most visited street in town, where multiple sculptures live in front yards up and down the street. The Amiot residence and studio is clearly apparent by the abundance of sculptures on the front lawn waiting for homes. Sitting in the eclectically furnished living room where a 1930s refrigerator serves as a stereo cabinet, Amiot sips freshly squeezed carrot juice and ponders the quirks of life that have molded him from a successful gallery ceramicist into an urban folk artist. He explains that shipping delicate ceramics to the East Coast was difficult and costly, and that he was looking for a new direction in life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always had this desire to do things out of objects, but I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine making a living out of it. I still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those things when you think of something but tell yourself, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This would just be too good to be true.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? In the midst of his career upheaval, Amiot started making junk art for fun. He created and installed a giant fisherman made from a water heater in his front yard, and received an unexpected reactionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his neighbors wanted to see more. The rest, as they say, is history. And history plays a big part in the sculptorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy behind the raw style of his art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole purpose of my work is to glorify these objects, because they have their own spirit,â&#x20AC;? Amiot enthuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a hubcap has traveled on a truck for millions of miles, and has seen the prairies in the winter and the hot summer asphalt, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done traveling with that truck and finds itself in the scrap yard and I find it, I kind of like to use that. This hubcap, or whatever piece of metal, from the day it was manufactured until now, has an important history. And I like to think the spirit of all these things lived incredible lives. If they could talk to you, they could tell amazing stories. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hide.â&#x20AC;? Besides being environmentally friendly, Amiot and Laurentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sculptures play an immense part in raising money for community schools. Amiot says he disliked the candy drives used by local schools to generate income. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I resented that the schools were having kids promote a product with no local connections,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talked with some friends about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inventingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; something indigenous to the community, and we came up with the idea of a calendar of the sculptures.â&#x20AC;? Photographed by David Featherstone and birthed into production by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;power momsâ&#x20AC;? of the community, the calendar has raised over a quarter-million dollars for local schools in just six years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line was to find something that represents Sebastopol,â&#x20AC;? Amiot says. Amiot and Laurent have recently purchased a new property, one with â&#x20AC;&#x153;a studio where we can make some noise,â&#x20AC;? Amiot smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I work there, putting the sculptures together and then bring them home, where Brigitte paints them. I want to expand so we can work together.â&#x20AC;? A bigger vision includes a sculpture garden where the public can wander through and look at art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to build a place we can share with the community something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative and beautiful,â&#x20AC;? he smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want it to be bold and outrageous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our fantasy.â&#x20AC;?

B^]VP]S 3P]RT The Belrose has trained generations how to move

By Tori Masucci

=

estled in the heart of Marin County, where George Lucas brought a wave of high-tech production standards to the entertainment industry, the quaint Belrose Theatre in San Rafael stands true to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;good old daysâ&#x20AC;? of show business. The Belrose is a small venue with a flourishing spirit, currently serving as San Rafaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only live theater. The red velvet curtains hang heavily above the stage. On the front wall, an expansive window of stained glass casts glimmers of red, green and gold across the wooden dance floor, where owner and executive director Margie Belrose has taught dance classes every week for over the past four decades. The Victorian-style theater earned its place in Marin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history when Belrose and her husband David purchased the former Trinity Lutheran Church in 1962 and renovated it into a new location for their performing arts center, offering instruction in dance and theater arts. After her husband passed away in 1971, Margie Belrose took over the entire business, producing plays, managing dance and acting

classes and raising her son and daughter in the two-story apartment behind the theater that she still calls home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of this as a job. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my life. I love what I do,â&#x20AC;? says Belrose, a spirit aglow in her sprightly blue eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People sometimes say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When are you going to retire?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To what?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The Belrose Dinner Theatre puts on two to four productions each year, including the drama The Lion in Winter, now in its eighth season. Belroseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time has been occupied with rehearsals for The Twilight Zone, which opened Oct. 9 and runs through Nov. 21. She continues to run everything behind the scenes, serving dinner and drinks to her guests at the candlelit tables during opening nights and appearing as a main character in many productions. With a passion for teaching, Belrose instructs jazz, tap and acting classes every week. Her students span a broad range of ages, from 12-year-olds in her acting workshop class to 80-year-old tap dancers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Though thousands of people have passed through here, I still keep in touch with many of my students,â&#x20AC;? Belrose says proudly. The Belrose faces the modern streets outside, its nostalgic aesthetic in sharp contrast to fast-paced suburbia, where families more often take their children to health clubs for theater arts instruction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very different world than it was 30 years ago. I taught 200 students a week by myself back then, but now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lucky to have 50, because the world has changed. Keeping a ballet class going has become more and more difficult,â&#x20AC;? Belrose sighs. Maintaining the Belrose is a family affair. Daughter Dea teaches a tap class once a week, and son David manages the costume shop in the basement, which opened in 1977 and serves as a large source of revenue for the theater. The colorful costume rental shop brims over with more than 3,000 costumes, masks, wigs and hats, all catalogued into genres within the small basement space. With over 700 Renaissance costumes, the Belrose also acts as a main supplier to seven Renaissance fairs across the country. The prop room behind the stage teems with old typewriters, tools and trunks, a testament to the community giving back to the Belrose over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the props, like the old wooden wheelchair sitting on the stage for The Twilight Zone rehearsals, simply appeared or were donated to us,â&#x20AC;? Belrose says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate that so much, because some of these things are so hard to come by these days. They are all treasures.â&#x20AC;? Every Thursday night for the past 13 years, the Belrose hosts an open mic night. A core group of attendees shows up, gathering around candlelit dining tables to cheer on the performers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Belrose is a place where people can grow artistically and it gives them a chance and a venue to expand their horizons,â&#x20AC;? Belrose says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if this place was gone, San Rafael would be missing a cultural advantage, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always thinking of ways to make it better. I sit in here during every show and think of what I can do to improve upon what we have here.â&#x20AC;?

The Imaginists Theatre Collective creates a new audience By David Templeton

ÂşC

here are so many different reasons that people go to the theater,â&#x20AC;? muses Amy Pinto, artistic director of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Imaginists Theatre Collective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply a desire for entertainment, but for a lot of others, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something more. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deeper. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a desire for theater that is entertaining, yes, but also for theater that focuses on the pushing of boundaries, the asking of questions, delving into the mysterious. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of theater we feel driven to do. And we are gradually finding audiences who want that experience as well.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do people go to the theater? What do they want from that experience? As artists, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a vital question to keep asking ourselves,â&#x20AC;? adds executive director Brent Lindsay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That questionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the willingness to ask that questionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is, I think, a big part of what defines ITC, both our artists and our audience.â&#x20AC;? How does an experimental company rooted in creating impossible-to-describe theater reach out and attract new people, and then keep them coming back? Inexplicably, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the scrappy Imagininsts have been slowly but steadily doing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a question of marketing,â&#x20AC;? Pinto says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How do we fill x number of seats on x number of nights?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; For us the question is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How do we build a community of theater makers and theater watchers? How do we let people know that our doors are open, and that that community exists right here in this big old Quonset hut in Santa Rosa?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? It is inside that big old Quonset hut, a former Santa Rosa automotive shop, that the Imaginists have been creating their own brand of description-defying work for the last year, stewing up a rich blend of classical works and exciting, experimental, actordeveloped pieces. The genesis of the company goes back to the North Carolina School of the Arts, where Lindsay and Pinto formed an experimental company called the Knights of Indulgence. That company moved eventually to Delaware, and (inexplicably) to Truckee, near Lake Tahoe, where the company disbanded in 2001. Shortly thereafter, Pinto and Lindsay found themselves in Healdsburg, where for the last several years they worked to establish the Imaginists, initially focusing solely on developing a school, handing down their unique brand of artist-driven theatermaking to eager young students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every individual in that room, every kid, is an artistic voice that has to be heard,â&#x20AC;? explains Lindsay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the students who create the shows. We merely facilitate it.â&#x20AC;? Those classes, which continue now at the Santa Rosa location around the corner from Juilliard Park, have been made intentionally affordable, with sliding-scale tuitions and a commitment that all be welcomed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made a pact when we first started,â&#x20AC;? Lindsay continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that we would never turn anyone away. What this ends up bringing is incredible diversity, kids from all kinds of backgrounds creating together.â&#x20AC;? Since moving to the permanent Quonset space, Lindsay and Pinto have returned to the kind of theater they started out doing, launching a series of hard-to-define experiences that combine a whole range of theatrical influences. Among these is the memorable Ubu Rex, a scatology-packed madhouse adaptation of Alfred Jarryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scandalous 1896 satire. That show was a landmark for the Imaginists, drawing sellout crowds of first-timers, as did the recent Extranjeros En Su Propia, a powerful bilingual collaboration with the Graton Day Labor Center. According to Pinto, the Imaginistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; largest segment of growth has been among young people and people who have never or seldom gone to the theater before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely seen a younger crowd than [do] a lot of theaters, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s encouraging for the future of theater in the area,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We draw young people, old people, families, English-speaking, Spanishspeaking. A lot of folks from the junior college have been checking us out. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all been through word of mouth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do advertising, so people hear about us primarily from other people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve discovered us and decided that whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening here is worth talking about.â&#x20AC;?

Ann Trinca brings Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pockets of art together By Gabe Meline

0

nn Trinca wants to make a zine again. She misses the way all different types of art come together on the pageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; the colors, the images, the layout. She misses the hands-on, organic aspect of zinemaking, like cutting paper with scissors and hand-sewing the spines. She misses uniting varying artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; styles in one cohered space. Indeed, a zineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Trinca co-created and -published the post-feminist DIY volume Pearl Necklace for two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is a microcosm of what Trinca does in the Napa Valley. Living in a region known for food and wine, the 38-yearold has fostered, coalesced and championed the largely unknown bustling arts scene since settling in Napa in 2002, and for that, we are glad to make her a Boho Award recipient. Born in Sacramento, Trinca took a love to the arts early, moving to San Francisco as soon as she left home. She studied philosophy at the University of San Francisco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I found,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when I started going to the museums

and galleries there, that artists really spoke to me more about the human situation. I learned a lot more from looking at the visual arts than I did reading philosophical texts.â&#x20AC;? She switched gears, got a masters in arts administration, and began her career at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. After living in San Francisco, Trinca relocated north to what she remembers as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bit of a shock to my systemâ&#x20AC;? for a job with Arts Council Napa Valley. When funding ran out, she worked as a gallery manager and program manager at the di Rosa Preserve for three years. She soon discovered that though there was art happening all over in the Napa area, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any one place to bring it together. It was at the Nest, the space she and partner Norma Quintana founded behind the Jessel Gallery in 2007, where Trinca brought her unique vision to fruition. With the motto of â&#x20AC;&#x153;live creatively, give generously,â&#x20AC;? Trinca and Quintana hosted a series of experimental events and shows, each one bringing artists more closely together. A Warhol-themed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Factory Dance Partyâ&#x20AC;? featured Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soup prizes; a make-your-own-tiara workshop was conducted because â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyone deserves their own crownâ&#x20AC;?; artists worked directly with attendees building dirt and bug worlds for a terrarium workshop; a Westward Film Fest showed projected short films outside; and an exhibition of photographs from Indonesia by students at Solano College was accompanied by an avant-garde gamelan performance by Gamelan X. The Nest this year lost its space, but by making connections far and wideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Trinca, a vegetarian, once brought Meatpaper magazine, Scratch â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sniff TV, the Secret Eating Society and the Fatted Calf Charcuterie in for a meatthemed art showâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she feels strongly that the North Bay can become an outpost for contemporary art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we just need to connect!â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like there are a lot of different pockets of activity. The ultimate goal of art, for me, is human interaction. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interacting with our audiences, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all clumped together and not talking to each other.â&#x20AC;? Thus, Trinca builds a buzz around local art events by covering them on her blog, Flourish, and to those who declare that there is no art scene in Napa, Trinca can now generally list 20 art events happening on any given weekend in the valley off the top of her head. Much of it is grass-roots and organic, unfunded and meted out in small, DIY helpings. With her background, and with her own art studio, Trinca sees the groundswell underwayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working with a local arts organization, Wandering Rose, to found a brick-and-mortar community space for all forms of art to mingle and grow together in the valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has so much potential,â&#x20AC;? Trinca says of Napa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mix of people is right. It really is the friends that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made, and the artists that I know now who are keeping me here. Rene diRosa was an inspiration to me. He said that the art world defines our regionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the artists who are living and working in the area. So I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for Napa to have its own identity and not just be the neighbor of San Francisco. And I think we can do it.â&#x20AC;? Learn more at www.napanest.com.

Actors add flair to annual House of Horror By David Templeton

5

rom somewhere deep in the heart of the sprawling Hopper House, someone is screaming bloody murder. This is a good sign. In the unique theatrical entertainment known as a Halloween â&#x20AC;&#x153;haunted houseâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;or simply a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hauntâ&#x20AC;? to aficionadosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; there is no applause at the finale, no standing ovation as the actors take their bows. In a haunt, the audience members show their appreciation simply by screaming. Tonight, at the Hopper House of Horror, located for the second year inside Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Hunter Steak House, there is no shortage of such â&#x20AC;&#x153;applauseâ&#x20AC;? from the visitors. The modern haunted house comes in many forms. Most of them are plotless, little more than a series of decorated rooms depicting unconnected scenes of creepiness. More and more, though, the creators of these annual attractions are approaching them as theatrical enterprises. Rather than simply staging them as walk-through showcases of loud noises and unsettling makeup effects, they are conceived as little, interactive plays. The problem, as with any grassroots theatrical offering, is finding enough actors up to the task. With the Hopper House, the producers (WOW Event Solutions) have hit on a no-brainer idea, recruiting an existing theater company to populate the haunt, sculpting the entire affair as a single interactive, walk-though show.

This year, for the second time, Narrow Way Stage Company has gotten the call. Young, energetic and already holding a reputation for edginess and a commitment to freaking people out, the rising theater troupe is a good fit. The fact that the Hopper House is now staffed with actors who can convincingly, you know, act, puts Hopper House at the forefront of North Bay scares. (Another good one is Sonomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effects-heavy Dragons Head Inn: www.dragonsheadinn.com.) The story is set up as the audience waits in the spacious two-story lobby of the Hopper House, killing time by examining cases filled with stuffed mutant babies and displays of desiccated corpses. For an extra fee, daredevils can take a ride inside the motion controlled coffin, a rare treat for anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever wanted know what being buried alive is like. The house is the boyhood home of Dr. Horus Hopper, a demented outcast whose childhood pets were evidently sickly, cannibalistic kitties. Curious about the functioning of the human body, he turned his home into a laboratory, borrowing organs and limbs from unsuspecting patients and implanting them into his ever-expanding â&#x20AC;&#x153;family.â&#x20AC;? All of this is elaborated, in dripping bits and pieces, once the tour begins. A nice touch is the slow-build meander through the upstairs area, an actor-free series of rooms in which visitors are gradually acclimated to just exactly how sick and twisted this Hopper guy is (the rotting teddy bear and eye-gouged baby doll are especially nice touches!). Once back down stairs, the experience kicks into full gear with a dimly lit corridor peopled with scuttling, deranged â&#x20AC;&#x153;assistantsâ&#x20AC;? wielding sledgehammers and axes. One of them, played by an actor who knows how disconcerting direct eye contact can be, randomly slams his sledgehammer against the wall shrieking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kill! Kill! Kill!â&#x20AC;? Another, drenched in blood, sizes up the crowd eagerly, whispering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I might have to eat youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if you survive this!â&#x20AC;? The most effective scenes include the dining room, where the main course is being carved up while still aliveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and, no, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not turkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the kitchen, where roasting body parts spin on the spit, and the imposing chef shouts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for dinner?â&#x20AC;? I particularly enjoy the attached meat locker, where we push through a number of dangling, plastic-wrapped slabs of meat, some of them are still writhing and twitching. The bestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and funniestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;moment comes last, when we finally meet Dr. Hopper himself, hard at work in his operating room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people call me a mad scientist,â&#x20AC;? he explains, sinking his scalpel into his not very sedated subject, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I like to think of myself as a free thinker!â&#x20AC;? People who attend these kinds of entertainments tend to fall into two groups. Those who run through at full gallop, dashing for the exit as fast as possible, and those who take their time, savoring every gory development, every surprise, every (sometimes literal) shock. I recommend relaxing and lingering. At the Hopper House of Horror, you are in bloody good hands. The Hopper House of Horror runs through Nov. 1 at the former Hunter Steak House, 3785 Cleveland Ave., Santa Rosa. The haunt opens at dusk, closing between 10pm and 11pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20; under 12, not recommended. Visit www.hopperhorror.com.

The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Seriousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; disadvantages of not being God, one of the Coensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best By Richard von Busack

8

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very serious movie, A Serious Man. All the themes in the Coen Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; previous films blend harmoniously. Here they reconcile the warring impulses to create apocalyptic tragedy and screwball comedy. Here, as in Raising Arizona, is the startling cartoon flatness of the United States. And here is the hideo-comic wrath of Americans and the way temper flares up so suddenly out of whimsical, friendly men. Here is the balance, as in Fargo,of what morality costs and what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth. A Serious Man is a vast Jewish joke that follows Kafkaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestion that in the struggle between you and the world, back the world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set in suburban Minneapolis in 1967, close to the place and the time in which the Coens grew up. In high-angle shots, the neighborhood is as remote as Mars: wide empty streets, square houses embedded in crabgrass, seething neighbors. A meek professor, Larry Gopnik (stage actor Michael Stuhlbarg, looking like a dispirited Harold Lloyd), teaches physics at a small college. As was the case for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucky Jimâ&#x20AC;? Dixon, Gopnik is tantalized with the possibility of tenure by the head of the math board, a monster of passive aggressiveness. One afternoon, a Korean exchange student tries to bribe Gopnik into a passing grade. Thus begins the siege against him. Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife announces that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deeply in love with their neighbor Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), a clammy, polyester-clad swine; Melamedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unforgettable acting depends heavily on an oleaginous voice, though this touchy-feely homewrecker is appalling on so many other levels. Larry is pushed out to the Jolly Roger Motel. With him comes his unemployable brother, Arthur (Richard Kind), an obese holy fool with weaknesses of the flesh.

For reverse angles, the Coens follow his son Danny (Aaron Wolff) and the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bovine indifference to his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woes. The marital struggles are but interferences to Dannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own routine of watching F Troop, smoking marijuana and trying to cheat his way through his upcoming bar mitzvah. Larry gets the promise of mercy from his next-door neighbor (Amy Landecker), a bronzed, deadpan siren who, like Danny, is tuned in to the San Francisco sound. The postmodern moments give A Serious Man a vaudeville kick: a prologue about the appearance of a demon in the old-time Jewish ghetto is staged like a lost episode of Mario Bavaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Black Sabbath. In another of this filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parables, a Hebrew message is carved by God into the teeth of a gentile to teachâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; what? Some indecipherable lesson, like the physics equations on Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chalkboard, like the Hebrew letters Danny is too dumb to learn. Even the leer of the Red Owl drug store sign, peering out of the screen, seems pregnant with terrible meaning. What seemed like caricature in the earlier Coensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; films is softer here. A Serious Man suggests very lightly that there might be some hope in the old rituals, something basic and kind. Photographer Roger Eakins and composer Carter Burwell do wonderful work making these episodes coalesce into a powerful fever dream of persecution and encroachment. As in Kafka, every avenue of escape is displayed just so the workers can rush up to nail the â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Exitâ&#x20AC;? sign. And as when reading Kafka, what keeps one from sinking into despair is the rich, heady humor. A Serious Man throbs with age-old mysteries to which one can only succumb, with the hope of being released into pain-free nothingness.

The Sandals - Summers, Songs and Sidebars

Director: Moises Salama Cast: Anthony Kiedis, Flea, John Frusciante, Chad Smith, Tony Kaye, Valerie Faris, Jonathan Dayton, Chris Rock ___________________________________________________

Director: Steve Gatlin (in Person) Cast: Walter Georis, Gaston Georis, John Blakeley, Danny Brawner, Bruce Brown, Robert “Wingnut” Weaver ___________________________________________________

The title of this documentary film is referred to the exploration of a world which coordinates are, in principle, easy to delimit: it is a film about Berber people (Imazighen) and it is centered in the impressive scenario of the High Atlas mountains, a territory where one of the more important cores of the Amazigh culture is still surviving.

In the summer of 1959, two teenage boys in Southern California met for the first time. They shared common interests in guitars and music. This friendship was the beginning of ‘The Sandals.’ Over the next few years, their music would help define a new genre of instrumental music now known as ‘Surf Rock.’ Now some of the original members of ‘The Sandals’ have come together again, and these are their stories.

Sat, Oct 17, 12:00 PM 86 minutes | Musical | Doc | Germany/Cuba/Mexico/Romania/Zanzibar

Director: Sigrid Faltin ___________________________________________________ The film is a journey on the wings of La Paloma, the most frequently played song in the world (La Paloma is Spanish for dove). 2000 versions are known. Some say, there are infinitely more. In Zanzibar it is played at the end of a wedding, in Romania it is performed at the end of a funeral. In Mexico it was the favorite song of the tragic Emperor Maximilian.

Through the Lens is a wonderful, evocative documentary on humanitarian photographer, Lisa Kristine, a woman who intimately photographs the spirit and dignity of our world.

Right-Hand Woman Forever associated with the hypothetical question â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if God was one of us?â&#x20AC;? from an unrepresentative song about seeing the divine on the bus, the eruptive singer Joan Osborne has, like the boy named Sue, overcompensated for her mawkish 1995 hit ever since. After stealing the show in Standing in the Shadows of Motown and guest-starring with the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, Osborne has started to live down â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of Usâ&#x20AC;? by vocally exploding on the stages of small clubs and theaters. Truly a wonder of nature, Osborne digs down into her soul this week with two openersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;worthy headliners in their own rightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Holmes Brothers and Paul Thorn, on Monday, Oct. 19, at the Mystic Theatre. 23 Petaluma Blvd. N, Petaluma. 8pm. $35. 707.765.2121.

Digital Wizards Bob Peterson may not be a household name, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve certainly heard his voice. As a jack-of-all-trades animator at Pixar Studios, Peterson wrote the screenplay for Finding Nemo, wrote and co-directed Up, and has performed voices for multiple Pixar features, including Roz in Monsters, Inc. Peterson comes to town to share his knowledge and experience with digital animation in a panel discussion with fellow Pixar workers. Finally, all those questions about how to bring magic to life so effortlessly can be answered on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Charles M.

Lone Stone Friends with Privileges has a double meaning for the dynamic singer Bernard Fowler. His new albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title could refer humorously to people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanna say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dating but still hit the sack, but it also hints at his role for the last 20 years singing backup vocals on tour and in the studio with the Rolling Stones. Part soul, part funk, part rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll, Fowler can sing with just about anyone, from Yoko Ono to Philip Glass to Herbie

Hancock. He brings to small clubs his experience with one of the biggest bands in the world, hoping to live as long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanna be 62, and I still want to rock,â&#x20AC;? he said recently, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting the best lesson I could ever get right now.â&#x20AC;? Fowler and his band tear it up on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Tradewinds. 8210 Old Redwood Hwy., Cotati. 9pm. $10. 707.795.7878.

Weird Worlds Giovanni and June DiMorente blew into the Bay Area after the f lood in New Orleans, but they brought with them all of the heavy haunt and intangible intrigue from the levees with their avant-cabaret ensemble El Radio Fantastique. Like a traveling Bertolt Brecht revue with Miklos Rosza and Charles Laughton as directors, the Inverness-based group captured, in 2008, the attention of Tom Waits, who brought their upright bass player on tour. Clarinet, Theremin and xylophone all factor in their occasionally and intentionally out-of-tune ramshackle serenades, which conjure a different world where clothes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit and water is dirtier. Horns, strings and dancers evoke cinematic episodes when El Radio Fantastique play two nights, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 16â&#x20AC;&#x201C;17, at the Dance Palace. 8pm. $14â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$16. 415.663.1075.

Opre Roma! Riding a resurgence in Eastern European brass music, from the young arrangements of Beirut to the reckless â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gypsy punkâ&#x20AC;? of Gogol Bordello, the Hungarian nonet Parno Graszt have been on tour around the world from Los Angeles to India spreading awareness of the true roots of Romani. As Songlines magazine declared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do not use sources of Gypsy music, they are the source itself.â&#x20AC;? With spoons, a milk jug, guitars, accordion and double bass, the group aims for a tearing down of the fourth wall between performer and audience, where spectators become participants and concerts become parties. Be there when North Eastern Hungary comes to the Napa Valley on Friday, Oct. 16, at the Napa Valley Opera House, 1030 Main St., Napa. $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. 707.226.7372.

Lonesome Holler String Band

Trailer Park Ranger David T. Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overtly sentimental new album o those who first met David Carter the way I did (he once bummed a cigarette from me at a bar and we slammed Pale Ale while talking about the brilliance of John Prine), the Trailer Park Rangers frontmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album, A Strange Kind of Blue, will cause a mild shock. The soft, plainly enhanced cover art is pastel pink and blue, with a four-poster bed floating in a sun-kissed ocean behind the shirtless, serious artist. The songs have female backup singers, tambourines, major seventh chords, egg shakers, synthesizers, piano and flamenco guitar. It is, at first, really weird. And then it works. For years, the Trailer Park Rangers have brandished ragged-but-right living and smart, roughshod country songs, and Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Australian upbringing brought a unique jackrabbit-and-Jack Daniels bent on Americana music. But with A Strange Kind of Blue, Carter has created a modern cool, channeling a noirish Chris Isaak on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Las Vegas Honeymoonâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;all coy whisper falling on bossa nova tom-tom tripletsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the spirit of the ďŹ rst rainfall of the season with the sentimental â&#x20AC;&#x153;Montana, New Orleans,â&#x20AC;? a hybrid of Jay Farrar and Roy Orbison on a chilly Thanksgiving Day parade ďŹ&#x201A;oat. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set down the well-worn acoustic guitar to lean against a lounge piano and wonder in song if he is the life of the party, like an earnest Richard Harris but with less bellowing. In this, Carter has taken an enormous risk by leaving the tried-and-true twang to the tumbleweeds and wearing his heart on his shoulder, venturing intrepid into cabaret and jazz, and it pays off very well. Variety, especially, is key. A muted trumpet on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whitey Rayâ&#x20AC;? reminds listeners that the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of blueâ&#x20AC;? is hidden in the album title, and ďŹ&#x201A;amenco recitations and fast nylon-string runs on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Sewinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Timeâ&#x20AC;? change the pace entirely just before the sweet closer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;California.â&#x20AC;? Whether Trailer Park Rangers fans will embrace A Strange Kind of Blue is dependent on how open-minded they will be to listening closely for nuance and heart. A tip: close your eyes, think of your ďŹ rst love, think of apple cider and wind-blown rain and backroads and candles. And then go see David T. Carter and the Trailer Park Rangers on Thursday, Oct. 15, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8:30pm. $20, includes CD. 707.545.2343. Gabe Meline

F8;3708A Wind gusts blow behind Fleet Foxesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Robin Pecknold at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treasure Island Fest.

C^cWT 8b[P]S

How to run a music festival that works By Gabe Meline

B

an Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treasure Island Music Festival is a festival for people who hate festivals so much that they recoil at reading the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;festivalâ&#x20AC;? so many times in the festively laden festival of this sentence. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to it every year, and have consistently been amazed by how other music festivals can suck so bad while Treasure Island, slated for Oct. 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18, always rules. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Small Most music festivals have multiple overlapping stages, which is terrible for diehard fans whose favorite bands play at the same time. At Treasure Island, there are only two stages, so a quick walk across a 100-yard stretch is all it takes to not miss a note. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get close to the front, and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where the Hell Am I?â&#x20AC;? iPhone app to find your friends. Bands Really Do Hang Out with Fans This is a selling point for a lot of festivals, but it rarely delivers. In the last two years at Treasure Island, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen Jack White and Spiritualizedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Pierce hanging out and talking, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the members of CSS in line for the Ferris wheel, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen Okkervil Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Will Sheff wandering around drinking a beer, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen Spoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Britt Daniel on the side of the stage watching Built to Spill, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen M. Ward waltzing through the crowd.

And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s without a VIP ticket. Which reminds me. VIP Tickets Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Worth It Yes, this is an asset, because it means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not tempted to shuck out the extra money. Oh, sure, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hell-bent on sitting far away from the stage on bleachers, go right ahead, but most will want to save the extra $60 and be part of the action. Treasure Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s VIP area boasts its own cocktail lounge and bathrooms, but both have lines just as dreadfully long as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;regularâ&#x20AC;? area. Minimal Corporate Advertising The corporate-rock days of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s were utterly depressing, reaching a low point when Elliott Smith went on tour f lanked by Miller Genuine Draft banners on either side of the stage. That sort of garbage still exists in weird Live Nation pockets of the world, but not at Treasure Island, where corporate logos are limited to Heineken, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sale. Electro Saturday! Indie Sunday! Any moron putting on a festival could do some simple math and calculate a dramatic surge in ticket sales by commingling genres and spreading the lineup over both days. Thankfully, since its inception, Treasure Island has booked electronic and hip-hop acts on Saturday and indie rock bands on Sunday, making it nice for the Justice fan to not have to suffer through Tegan and Sara. No Damn Cars All attendees park for free at AT&T Park in the city, and the shuttles that run to and from the island are efficient, free and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ultra-fancy inside. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never waited more than 10 minutes for a shuttle, and the shared excitement with fellow fans is something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never get by paying $20 to park alone in a dusty field. The Bands Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Suck Festivals are often dumping grounds for washups like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but Treasure Island consistently finds relevant bands. This year is a well-curated mix of rising stars Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, MGMT, Beirut and Girl Talk alongside familiar favorites like the Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, the Decemberists, DJ Krush and the Walkmen, among many others. Believe it or not, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weakest lineup in its three-year history, which is saying something. You Wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Get Bored Instead of agonizing while Bob Mould lulls nostalgia hounds to sleep, why not hit up the myriad tents full of strange art projects and interactive games? A full-on 1980s video arcade debuted in 2007, and last year, I spent a half-hour winding a piece of yarn around a series of nails with complete strangers. The sun hung low behind the Golden Gate Bridge, and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at the godforsaken Shoreline Amphitheatre under a Nike banner while nonstop street-teamers stuffed crappy AFI promo swag into my hands. Life was good. Now if they could simply supply free tap water and not sell tickets through Ticketmaster, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the best festival in California.

A SWEETER MUSIC: A Live Concert By Sarah Cahill with Video by John Sanborn Sun. Oct 18th, 3:30pm 142 Throckmorton Theatre, Mill Valley Celebrated pianist, writer and radio host Sarah Cahill actively investigates life through her music. Exploring the meaning of Dr. King’s words— “We must see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody that is far superior to the discords of war”—and inspired by a recent arrangement of antiwar hymn “Down By the Riverside,” Cahill commissioned leading con-

temporary composers to create new works for solo piano. In what promises to be an unforgettable event—set against stunning visual poems by seminal video artist and longtime MVFF favorite John Sanborn—each piece in this live concert represents a composer’s vision of peace or reaction to war.

She may be a computer programmer from St. Helena Hospital and watched on this day 3 movies back to back in the theater on Fourth St. in the town of Santa Rosa The Love Guru by Mike Meyers, Wall-E and another film.
