383=½C<40=C>38BBA42H2;8=6 As a member of the management team at Wine Bottle Recycling, LLC, we certainly appreciate the positive comments we have received regarding the excellent article on our wine-bottle reuse program featured in the Jan. 6 issue (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bottle Bluesâ&#x20AC;?). Although members of our team made certain comments relative to recycling that appeared to be negative, we all know and understand that reuse is but one of many ways to improve our environment when it comes to glass bottles, and that includes recycling and newer light-weight bottles, to name a couple. One of the strengths of our business plan is predicated on working with local recycling facilities. They have the infrastructure, delivery system and expertise to handle all facets of bringing a more green glass to the marketplace, whether it is for reuse or recycle. While experts in the field all agree that reuse is higher on the resource recovery hierarchy, both reuse and recycling share important

and tangible environmental benefits, including significant energy savings and CO2 reductions. Both strategies create new local jobs and capture raw materials (and for glass containers with no loss of purity, quality or additional waste or by-products created) and therein lies the promise of a truly sustainable society. Any opportunity to recycle and save energy is certainly worth our time and effort. Thanks for allowing me to make an important points regarding the importance of our entire recycling program for glass and other materials.

0680=CFC5 After a couple reads of last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article about Douglas Keaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s civil suit against a Healdsburg teenager, I still have no idea what her gender has to do with the story (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foie Gras Flap,â&#x20AC;? Jan. 13). It really is a giant WTF. My memories of being a 16-year-old

hetero, white, gender-conforming male are tough enough; I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine how rough it would be to be outed in the local alt weekly just after being sued for a million bucks by a guy who has tried to peg you as a crazed fringe element. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering about a couple other things also. Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the Healdsburg police or Sonoma County DA pursue criminal charges for the alleged assault or the threatening emails? Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the article even mention the million dollar punitive damages aspect of the suit Mr. Keaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal team filed? Last time I checked, a restraining order is a pretty easy thing to get, especially if there is a pattern of intimidation. Going after a teenager for a million bucks with a high-priced legal team seems kind of excessive. That law enforcement didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go after these charges also says something. And finally, even though foie gras got top billing in the headline, there was no description of why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s controversial or what a vet would be doing at a farm that raises birds for foie gras. Enlighten me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a power-dynamics and social-movements guy, and I could give a crap about yuppie grub. This is your chance to get me to read about food, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re blowing it.

@D44A834=C8C84B I wanted to let readers of and writers for this publication know that using the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;transvestiteâ&#x20AC;? with regard to a minor who may or may not be â&#x20AC;&#x153;outâ&#x20AC;? to their family or community is not OK. It is a violation of privacy. I am not involved in this case and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have feelings about foie gras one way of another, but I object strongly to the possible defamation of the young person in question. We need to be sensitive to the fact that there are differences between transvestites, transsexuals and transgendered people. Use the correct term when appropriate for an adult or for someone who wishes to be identified in this way. The tone of the article uses the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;transvestiteâ&#x20AC;? as a weapon to show that the young activist is some how unhinged. I wish that the Bohemian, of all publications, would be more sensitive to queer identities in future.

?A>3D2434;810:4AHF4;2><4 Wal-Mart plans to open a supercenter in every California county similar to this one in Canada.

1dX[SX]VP1XVVTa1^g

Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed Rohnert Park expansion is just part of the usual plan, says UC history professor By Kylie Mendonca

=

elson Lichtenstein can sound like someone with important news to share when he starts talking about Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributions to the American and global business worlds. Not one for a pregnant pause or lulls in conversation, Lichtenstein moves seamlessly between his thoughts, fast as they come. For all his excitement over the mega-retailer, Lichtenstein is not singing the praises of cheap products and cheaper labor. This University of California Santa Barbara history professor, as they say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wrote the bookâ&#x20AC;? on Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;literallyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;penning some 300 pages of history, criticism and personal journey

on the company ranging from its sweatshops in China to its corporate home in Arkansas. Lichtenstein will speak and sign copies of his new book, The Retail Revolution: How Wal-Mart Created a Brave New World of Business, on Jan. 22 in Santa Rosa. His arrival has local resonance. In the coming weeks, Rohnert Park city officials will be talking about Wal-Mart, too. The proposed 24-hour Wal-Mart supercenter project will go before the planning commission for review this winter, a proposal to expand the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current Wal-Mart into a full grocery store. The only other such supercenter in the North Bay is located in American Canyon, though the company is said to have plans to construct one in each

California county. Locally owned grocers are concerned, and opposition in Napa County stalled the American Canyon project for three years before it was finally approved. Under the current proposal, the shopping center could grow by more than 40,000 square feet, ballooning from its current 131,532-square-foot footprint to almost 171,800 square feet. According to the environmental impact report, finalized Jan. 15, the space will bring locals new job opportunities, new shopping convenienceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and plenty of new traffic congestion, too. While neighbors worry that the expansion could put local grocery stores out of business, Lichtenstein focuses on the ripples left by the retailer across the global business landscape. The problem with Wal-Mart, % .

ast April, I rid myself of a car to start land longboarding, and to attempt to build my artisan business within what I call a â&#x20AC;&#x153;naturo-physicalâ&#x20AC;? state. A response to the manufactured lifestyle I know as mainstream society, the naturophysical state is my attempt to direct and better control the relationship among raw physical ability, biodynamic food, clean water, immediate environment, personal work and interests, successes and progress, and social interactions. The notion is that I can design a livelihood within a manual radius, essentially meaning on foot, and can maintain prosperity without the abundance of external materials and mechanized behavior that defines a â&#x20AC;&#x153;typicalâ&#x20AC;? American life. I believe that if individuals molded their lives in accordance to a naturo-physical state, then we would see a shift en masse away from the inertia of lives spent merely producing goods, not-so-goods and everything in between. Land longboarding grants me the kind of mobility, albeit a rustic kind, that resonates with much of my internal direction. By moving and working, mostly on foot, my body grows fit, and this fitness helps increase my vitality. I can then work harder or go farther on the board, and so can reach more people. At some point during the day, certainly, my physical capability will be tapped, but this merely provides an opportunity for another to continue the project; the lifestyle, then, is inherently cooperative. Such a system, I believe, could encourage more people to supply the materials a society requires, spreading activity and engaging the community. In the larger society of our country, I envision many smaller circles promoting a kind of life keyed to the specific and natural ebb and f low of an areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biology and harvest rhythms. The naturo-physical state

encourages a lifestyle that partakes of organic gardens, clean water and air, agile movement, good sleep and balancing perceived needs with what is available on foot. On the longboard, more time is needed to get around, but the journeys are undertaken with intention, for I cannot carry much. In this mode, fewer things seem important, but what is important receives more attention. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true there are times when having a car would be nicer, but difficulties traveling on the board and going by foot merely elicit thoughts about what drives lifestyle, community and city development. I am almost at a point where my business is demanding increased vehicular mobility, which could possibly create a dilemma over the basic principles of living in a naturophysical state. But with resourceful thinking, or people in the community willing to horse-and-buggy around an over-idealist, I may be able to keep a business f lowing and growing on foot. Longboarding everyday certainly takes effort, but now I sort of need it. I like improving my balance and foot-touch, and I like the daily physical exertion. As with anything requiring practice, the more hours spent utilizing fine motor skills, the better these skills become. And, too, my physical movement and prowess increase just by living life, for even if it is raining and I have to be somewhere, I can always run. As my body grows stronger, I am driven to keep it strong and it is easier to maintain. Of course I need to earn a living and pay bills, yet staying physically fit is the thing I care about most, no matter what I do.

On the longboard, more time is needed to get around, but the journeys are undertaken with intention, for I cannot carry much.

he argues, is not so much found in the trail of small-town retail wreckage it leaves but in the example it sets for other major retailers and their employees. Wal-Mart is less important as a Wal-Mart, Lichtenstein says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;than it is important for what it teaches.â&#x20AC;? The Wal-Mart model, Lichtenstein says, is low prices bought on the backs of workers. Sure, the consumer saves a buck, but that buck has to come from somewhere, and Lichtenstein argues it comes from the workers in the form of lower wages, scanty benefits and minimal job security. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In general,â&#x20AC;? Lichtenstein says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they are pulling down the wage level for millions of peopleâ&#x20AC;? For Lichtenstein, this trend was underscored some five years ago when a group of grocery store workers in Southern California held massive demonstrations against their corporate bosses. In response to market pressures, he writes, corporations such as Safeway and others asked workers to take pay cuts. The unions, of course, were not keen. Lichtenstein identified this request as a sort of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wal-Mart effect.â&#x20AC;? Several local business groups have latched on to Lichtensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message. The Living Wage Coalition on Sonoma County, Go Local Sonoma County and the North Bay Labor Council, are among the groups sponsoring Lichtensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming talk. Martin Bennett, co-chair of the Living Wage Coalition of Sonoma County, is among those who oppose the proposed expansion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The decision by the Rohnert Park city council will be closely watched and, if affirmative, highly controversial, particularly given the rejection by the Santa Rosa city council of a proposed Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home Improvement store earlier this year,â&#x20AC;? he says. For Bennett, the construction of a supercenter is about more than low wages and what some see as unfair grocery store competition. In addition to an EIR, the Living Wage Coalition consistently seeks community impact reports for such large businesses, looking to measure how the overall quality of life is affected when a bigbox retailer comes into town or, as in this case, grows even bigger. In 2006, Wal-Mart approached the city of Santa Rosa to take over an idle lot in the unincorporated southwest part of town. The corporation finally dropped efforts to build last February after activist groups successfully pressed a lawsuit against the corporation over its environmental impact report. The storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss meant a half a million dollar estimated loss in Santa Rosa sales tax revenue. But being sued is part of the WalMart story, according to Lichtenstein. He writes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Wal-Mart locates one of its grocery-selling supercenters in metropolitan America, it asserts the legitimacy and power of a brand of capitalism that is antithetical to the regulated marketplace. . . . The company is therefore constantly defending itself against a set of class-action lawsuits.â&#x20AC;? In other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s par for the course.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discount recycling when searching for a new biz model By Juliane Poirier

C

o enter the new green paradigm requires a change in thinking, which naturally leads to change in behaviors and strategies. In the transforming market place especially, self-touted greenies might blunder if they use marketing tools that belong to a past era. Take swiping, for example. As old as sales itself is the tactical put-down: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My new whozit is so fabulous that your longtime whatzit must be trash.â&#x20AC;? So went the comments of Bruce Stephens, quoted in the recent Bohemian article (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bottle Blues,â&#x20AC;? Jan. 6) about the business he co-owns with Napa supervisor Bill Dodd. The two entrepreneurs plan to profit from washing wine bottles for reuse. Cool idea. But Stephens plugs his bottle-washing business by dissing glass recycling. Not cool. In fact, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call that a major tactical error. Time to call in the damage-control experts before serious setbacks result, once again, for recycling. (See Letters, p6.) When I checked in with the gracious pros, they had nothing but good to say about the glass-reuse venture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great business idea. We support it 100 percent,â&#x20AC;? said Tim Dewey-Mattia of Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recycling and Waste Services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, there is no need to take a swipe at recycling. The real message should be that recycling and reusing bottles are both part of the solution, along with waste reduction including thinner bottles and more efficient production processes where the bottle begins.â&#x20AC;? Responding to the claim made in the article that recycling is not worth the effort because it only saves a little silica, DeweyMattia points out that the strongest reason for recycling glass is not merely to save silica any more than it is to merely save space in landfills, though both are achieved in the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the energy savings,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes only two-thirds the energy to produce a glass bottle from recycled glass than from virgin materials. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant savings. Couple that with the fact that washing a bottle saves four times the energy, and we get a comprehensive, positive message, a hierarchy in which both reuse and recycling are good, and reuse is better than recycling.â&#x20AC;?

Latecomers to green industry often make two critical mistakes: they can use oldparadigm business strategies (undermining, for one); and they can fail to recognize that the foundation of their business opportunity was built by hard-won legislation and decades of public education done largely by nonprofit organizations whose members continue to help change the American throw-away mindset. David Briggs is among the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste-management career professionals. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointed by the claims Stephens is quoted as making about recycling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We promote reuse businesses, but the project consultantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments, including that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;recycling is hardly different than buying new bottles,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; may do more to misinform the public than any messages Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read related to the impact of glass recycling on issues ranging from landfill space preservation to climate change,â&#x20AC;? says Briggs, who has worked in the recycling and wastemanagement field for more than 20 years, and now manages recycling programs for the Napa County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reuse and recycling both fit into an integrated approach,â&#x20AC;? he stresses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reuse and recycling are not in conflict with each other as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strategies,â&#x20AC;? explains Kevin Miller, waste manager for the city of Napa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both are representative of the integrated wastemanagement hierarchyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; reduce, reuse, recycle. At the top of the hierarchy is waste prevention, with reuse coming in higher than recycling but both being far superior options to litter or land-filling of discarded materials.â&#x20AC;? Recycling professionals are hoping to add wine bottles to the bottle bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be a huge boost in both recycling and reuse efficiency,â&#x20AC;? says Dewey Mattia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides adding funding to a struggling program, this addition will lead to more color sorting of glass and high-grading of bottles, which will provide quality feedstock to the bottle manufacturers and more bottles to bottle-washing companies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-win situation.â&#x20AC;? There you go. New paradigm thinking at its best. Meanwhile, old-market thinking and old paradigm strategiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;such as selfpromotion tactics that take swipes at the public goodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are clunkers trashing the new green marketplace. They should be scrapped and, yes, recycled.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Reuse and recycling are not in conflict with each other as â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? strategies.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Kevin Miller

5aXPa7d]cžb<PVXR Hop grower and brewer Brian Hunt Moonlights for a living By Alan Stoltzfus

1

eside the driveway to the Moonlight Brewery near Sebastopol, a small white sign leans against a 16-foot pole in the hop yard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abbey de St. Humulus, Anno 2005,â&#x20AC;? it reads. Humulus lupulus is the scientific name for hops, but this is no European-style Abbey. Rather, it is a California monastery of the imagination. Above the left pocket of owner Brian Huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gray, official-looking shirt is his Moonlight label. On the right are embroidered the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fr. JeanPierre, Director of Ecumenical Servicesâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;which could be one reason why rumors have circulated that Hunt is a monastic man. Apocryphal. However, this brew master does have the religious zeal of a missionary spreading the faith of quality craft beer through a land of drinkers guzzling dreck from a can. What drives him? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best craft beer possible,â&#x20AC;? he says. His enlightenment occurred some years ago in Leeds, England, during the Real Ale Festival. After

tasting some of Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best, he felt the calling to make better beer himself, but to do it on his own terms. Sitting in a plastic Adirondack chair on his gravel driveway on a wooded hill, shifting every 20 minutes to stay in the mid-day sun, he reveals his teaching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just supporting my habit,â&#x20AC;? he says. (Friars wear habits.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just like a chef, I have to know my ingredients. I taste the grains, I chew on the herbs. Sometimes I make a tea. I pretty much just wrap my head around it.â&#x20AC;? After that there are no experimental small batches. He makes 10 to 15 barrels and just puts it out there. Each barrel contains 104 pint glasses. Such confidence. Hunt pours himself a glass of Moonlight and eagerly stops in front of a maze of piping near where his mash is initially filteredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the first step in the processâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and in the fermentation room between tall cylinders full of beer in the making, obviously proud of what he has accomplished. Everything is contained in the square, gray brewery that he built in 2003. At an efficient

1,000 square feet, it is the largest commercial building the county would allow on his property. Starting back in 1992 with much-used equipment cobbled together from other nearby breweries, Hunt now distributes his kegs throughout the Bay Area. When he talks about brewing, it is with the depth of devotion people usually reserve for discussions of philosophy or religion. He will not bottle his product because he believes that bottling ruins beer. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beer that runs through his veins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether it is beer or life, Brian thinks outside the box,â&#x20AC;? says Vinnie Cilurzo, brewmaster and co-owner, with his wife, Natalie, of Russian River Brewing Company, and surely in that class of unusual brewmasters himself. (For â&#x20AC;&#x153;outside the box,â&#x20AC;? read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazy alternative.â&#x20AC;?) â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is a pioneer in the craft beer industry.â&#x20AC;? When Korbel closed its brewpub where Cilurzo was brewmaster and replanted the three acres of hops with grapes, he and his wife brought rhizomes for Hunt to plant. The two brewers shared the hops for a few years when both made a fresh hop beer, and they &) THE BOHEMIAN

have become good friends. And while the Cilurzos eventually opened the Russian River Brewing Company in downtown Santa Rosa, Hunt has continued on his solitary path, making unusual beer from his own hops when he pleases. Hunt has personal things he wants to keep secret. Any direct question about himself soon turns into a dissertation on another aspect of brewing. He made mead in his parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garage when he was only 15, but it was not with the typical teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to get drunk; he just wanted to observe the magic. That magic pulled him into biochemistry at San Diego State University, but he found that competing with pre-med students was not what he wanted. After two years, he transferred to the viticulture and enology program at UC Davis. His fermentation instructor, Dr. Michael Lewis, was also the brewing professor, and he gave Hunt a job working in his lab. The die was cast. He found the brewing department less competitive and more focused on the craft, which has its natural ups and downs. At Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company of Milwaukee, his first job after graduating from Davis, Hunt was brought in to help turn around a faltering company. But he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a speech writer, which was evidently what they needed, for the CEO was quoted as saying that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what they put in the can, if it said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Schlitzâ&#x20AC;? on the label, people would buy it. That was the death sentence for a brand that had once been Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bestselling. The brewers tried to bring back the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confidence. They succeeded in making a much better beer, Hunt says, but the damage was done. Budweiser took the lead and surged ahead. Schlitz management, concerned about maximum return on their investment, gave up, not reintroducing the brand to wide market sales again until 2008. Hunt can find room in his soul to defend Budweiser, perhaps as part of his ecumenical duties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anheuser-Busch has tried to maintain quality, but also tried to be more efficient about it,â&#x20AC;? he says, a surprise for all the purists out there. He also stresses that when a company devotes too much time to advertising, it means it is paying less attention to quality. Since Hunt doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t advertise, he can devote all of his energy to quality. The result is a lot of happy drinkers. Hunt has paid his dues as brewmaster for several craft breweries, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ahead of the competition. Still, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relaxed, although always alert to a new train of thought about his favorite subject. He enjoys his life. He has a few Pinot Noir vines and makes wine. He grows enough hops, which his friends help him pick, to make a single batch of fresh hop beer every autumn. Because he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the stuff touch glass unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glass, Moonlight is only found at area brewpubs, and the sign on his gate warns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;By appointment only.â&#x20AC;? Occasionally, Huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two daughters have helped with his business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they

needed money badly enough, they were willing to wash kegs,â&#x20AC;? he allows. They are older now, which leaves Hunt as sole proprietor and employee. He makes about a thousand barrels of his product himself per year (compare to the 80,000 or so barrels that Lagunitas Brewery produces), sells his product himself, delivers his product himself, and if one is lucky enough to get an invitation to enter his brewery, will pour some of his product himself.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If everyone absolutely loves everything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really experimenting enough.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

He has made Death and Taxes for years, as well as Lunatic Lager, Reality Czech, Bombay by Boat IPA and a few other regulars. But there is no telling what he will make next year for his special beer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like diversity in beer. I like to press the limits of what beer can do,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want them to be intriguing. If everyone absolutely loves everything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really not experimenting enough.â&#x20AC;? For the beer he calls Artemis, he reached back into history and used mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris, a plant in the same genus as sagebrush and tarragon. Mugwort is one of the herbs used in gruit, which the church in the Middle Ages ordained to be the only flavoring in beer. Hunt assures that drinking a pint of this every day for a week produces beautiful dreams. In the beer he calls Working for Tips, he reached up into the branches of the redwood tree next to his brewery. The new growth gives a fresh taste to the drink while a few inches back, the needles contribute a more bitter flavor. Just to keep things balanced, he calls Twist of Fate his â&#x20AC;&#x153;ultimate session beer. At 5.5 percent alcohol, it offers enough calories for stamina, and the hop content keeps your temperament relatively stable,â&#x20AC;? he says. To put it another way, three pints wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get drinkers blitzed. Next season it will be something new, something totally different, something no other brewery is making. Yeah, he does this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his calling. And whatever he does, he does it for you.

40CC>A403 ith images of the recent tragedy in Haiti haunting us, it is all the easier to remember that even in this modern age, much of the globe doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy such First World niceties as clean water, let alone building codes, a living wage or electricity. In a suburb of the Ghanaian city of Tamale, the small town of Jissonaayili struggles to educate its kids without much fresh water, with few robust structures, with a living wage of some $500 a year for its citizens and with no electricity in the schools.

W

Set on the savannahs near the Sahara, Jissonaayili is just a few kilometers from what is called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;NGO capital of Northern Ghana,â&#x20AC;? and not surprisingly, an NGO has set about to help the children there get wired. Called the Ghana Women/Children Collective of North America, this nonproďŹ t group hosts a beneďŹ t for their efforts on behalf of Jissonaayiliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school children on Sunday, Jan. 24, at the French Garden in Sebastopol. Called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turn on the Lights, I Want to Read,â&#x20AC;? the afternoon features entertainment by AďŹ a Walking Tree and the female drumming ensemble Spirit Drumz as well as a performance by the Rising Moon Playback Theatre. Jakada Imani, executive director of Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ella Baker Center, will speak, and of course the French Gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good food, currently served up by former St. Rose chef-owner Mark Malicki, makes everything in the world seem right. Mark it down for Jan. 24 from 2pm to 6pm at the French Garden, 8050 Bodega Ave., Sebastopol. $50, single; $80, couple. 707.604.7044.

BDBC08=01;4 F8=4B t may be the greatest question we face as wine buyers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is this bottle sustainable?â&#x20AC;?

I

Of course it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be gone by nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. The wine industry itself, though, will hopefully last indeďŹ nitely, and early in 2010 the industry took a big step toward this magical goal. On Jan. 13, the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA), a nonproďŹ t created by the Wine Institute, launched a third-party certiďŹ cation program designed to better identify and honor wineries and vineyards that are making actual, honest efforts to reduce their impact on the environment and neighboring communities. According to Allison Jordan, executive director of the CSWA, between ďŹ ve and seven accredited inspectors will be licensed to do the job of inspecting wineries and vineyards and rating them for sustainability across a comprehensive range of 227 criteria, including energy usage, water conservation and enhancing relations with customers and employees. Within these criteria, there are 58 prerequisites which companies must meet in order to be eligible for the program. Once certiďŹ ed, wineries and vineyards will be granted permission to post a CSWA logo on their websites and other marketing materials. A bottle label logo remains a future goal. The program is entirely voluntary, requiring payment from winery or vineyard to the individual conducting the assessment. Naturally, the possibility of favoritism exists, and to prevent such lawlessness, fees may be capped. Moreover, repeated hiring of the same inspector at the same facility may be limited to prevent, say, inappropriate friendships from developing between parties. Until now, CSWA has merely offered guidelines for companies to follow in voluntarily assessing themselves for sustainability. Frey Vineyards in Mendocino County, for example, one of the largest certiďŹ ed organic wineries anywhere, assessed itself several years ago under CSWAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines, according to the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant winemaker Eliza Frey. The winery gave itself quite a good rating, too. At Cain Vineyard and Winery in St. Helena, winemaker Chris Howell believes CSWAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new program is absolutely essential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t self-assess,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need that third party.â&#x20AC;? Howell believes true sustainability is a profound notion. He points to vineyards in Europe that have operated for a thousand years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see that for the Napa Valley,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greenâ&#x20AC;? claims abound in many industries, often appearing on labels to inďŹ&#x201A;uence consumer choices, and carefully monitored third-party review systems can add integrity, transparency and a critical eye to inspection and assessment. All wine bottles soon run dry, and even the industry will someday wither and fade, but the year 3000 is just 990 years away.

70ACžB34B8A4 F8=4B he name seems like ďŹ tting wordplay for a man named John Hart with a passion for wine, and the come-hither cast on his labels only play it up. Ah, but he founded the winery with his wife, Desire. Is not life sometimes surprisingly perfect? Hart can either be found both hobnobbing with jet-set vineyard owners or out in the ďŹ elds, picking entire lots of grapes as his own crew.

T

Swirl â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Spit last saw him in Cloverdale, pouring at the opening of aâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;now-shutteredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bright, white art gallery and tasting room for which Cloverdale was apparently not ready. Now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set up at the Waterfront tasting room, part of the Old Roma Station collection of wineries by the Russian River, sharing the bar with Christi Vineyards and J. Keverson Winery. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art on the exposed brick walls of this giant space, too, and visitors can paint their own square on a guestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canvas. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a candy-colored jukebox, and works by the artist Loreta Hornall, who provides Hartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earth-toned, sensual labels depicting bedroomeyed vixens, amatory couples and, on his 2007 Grenache RosĂŠ ($18), an ardent devil in form-ďŹ tting red spandex making a brash play for an angel. The rosĂŠ has herbal thyme and pine aromas, a nose of candied-strawberry and rhubarb, and is sweet-bodied but ďŹ nishes nice and dry. Hartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2008 Russian River Valley, Ritche Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc ($20), softened in neutral oak barrels, has a candy-lime, tropical fruit nose, and the sensation of a fat raindrop on the tip of an outstretched tongue puts the crisp acidity in balance. This is a classy Blanc from a vineyard that lends these attributes to a few other Russian River wineriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; product. J. Keversonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light-bodied 2006 RRV Labyrinth Vineyard Pinot Noir ($38) serves up classic cherry cola ďŹ&#x201A;avors, with clove and allspice while fern, allspice and orange peel characterize Hartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silky 2007 Eastman Lane Pinot Noir ($36). With an air of fresh dirt after rain, gorgeous cherry-plum fruit and ďŹ&#x201A;annel-soft tannins, Hartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2007 Rockin H Ranch Pinot Noir ($35) sways the senses. Long a source of Hartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Desire vintages, the Ponzo Vineyard provides the 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel ($25) with aromas of blueberry danish and layers of chocolate and blackberry ďŹ&#x201A;avor. The 2008 Late Harvest Zinfandel ($25) delights with a clean, sticky raisin aroma and a plush, porty palateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not too sweet or hot, more like fur on the tongue. Nightcap-sippers looking for a bit more of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;kickâ&#x20AC;? can move to the end of the bar for a less subtle salveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Christie Vineyardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late harvest Zinfandel, which is actually called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Panty Dropper.â&#x20AC;? Just watch out where that kick is aimed. Hartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Desire Wines, 53 Front St., Healdsburg. Open Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Monday, 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm. Tasting fee $5. Old Roma Station hosts a special event on Feb. 14, Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. 707.433.3097.

5[XVWc?[P]b A weekend spent in search of the art of parkour By Gabe Meline

0

ccording to Ryan, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready to double-kong over picnic tables. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already mastered a monkey jump, a cat walk, a cat leap, a speed vault and a few precision jumps. Come to the jam on Sunday with the other traceurs, he insists. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a natural. Right? What I am is sore. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just spent a weekend immersed in parkour, a vigorous gymnastic practice rapidly blazing across the urban landscape. In the Bay Area, where two organizations promote the culture with monthly jams and regular training sessions, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been more alive and encouraging of new practitioners, or, in the original French, traceurs. Ice, ibuprofen and Tiger Balm not included.

What is this new mystery sport? Parkour, or lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;art du dĂŠplacement, is a noncompetitive discipline regularly defined as the art of overcoming obstacles in the most quick and efficient way possible using only oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. But since its inception in France in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, generally credited to David Belle and his childhood friend SĂŠbastien Foucan, it has collected elements of gymnastics, track and field, ninjutsu, combat training and general trickery to evolve into a fascinating and eye-catching method of traversing the urban environment. Think of it as Chuck Norris meets Nadia Comaneci. Thanks to shows like MTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ultimate Parkour Challenge, movies like Casino Royale (featuring Foucan) and District-13 Ultimatum (starring Belle) and even a parkour spoof on an episode of The Office, parkour is more popular than ever. I got a basic run-down of the phenomenon

by packing up my shorts and deodorant and heading to CrossFit Marin, where Andres De La Rosa, 35, and Ryan Fulmer, 21, teach classes to everyone from a four-year-old boy to a 40year old woman who plays violin with the Philadelphia Philharmonic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids, when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like three, four and five, they seem to be running around doing a little baby version of parkour,â&#x20AC;? De La Rosa says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and in a way, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just learning how to traverse their environment.â&#x20AC;? As people get older, he points out, they lose that natural curiosity, and parkour is a good way to rediscover it. Most traceurs, much like street skateboarders, are constantly assessing their urban environment and adapting quickly to its unpredictable terrain. Fulmer and De La Rosa work like opposite sides of the same sawhorse. Routinely and hilariously in disagreement with each ') THE BOHEMIAN

other, they give two different approaches to the sport, both of which are valuable. Fulmer is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s referred to as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;huck and chuckâ&#x20AC;? instructor, basically kicking his birds out of the nest and watching them freefall into a shoulder roll. De La Rosa, on the other hand, stresses personal fitness and safety, and when he leads me out to drill some basic safety maneuvers, Fulmer cups a hand to his mouth and whispers, shaking his head in mock protest, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This here, this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t parkour.â&#x20AC;? De La Rosa starts me out with some simple extensions, head rolls and shoulder rolls, making sure I have orientation and know what to do in the event of a fall. He has me trip myself backward and come out of it into a candlestick rock, protecting my head by keeping my body â&#x20AC;&#x153;hollow,â&#x20AC;? or arched. He shows me some simple precision jumps, and soon has set up a basic obstacle course with boxes and mats. I jump off a wooden box, over a block, slap the ground, run and monkey-jump a block, drop and shoulder-roll out. This is not easy, at least mentally. I find myself mapping my moves ahead of time but relying on a hazy instinct for motion while in the rapid throes of momentum, and sometimes stepping with the wrong foot or rolling raggedly. I am not a particularly athletic or coordinated person, I explain, but they insist that I am doing well. Ideally, De La Rosa says, I would have much more basic training before advancing to technical moves. But Fulmer must see something in meâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;though Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure quite what it could beâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;because he starts setting up larger blocks and pads inside the gym in what seems like a recipe for disaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, get in here!â&#x20AC;? he shouts. In contrast to De La Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gym gear, Fulmer is in jeans, black-frame glasses and a tight black T-shirt. At just 21, he has several physical parkour trophies: calluses across his palms and a sizable calcium deposit on his shoulder, like a sub-epidermal doorknob. He hooked up with Bay Area Parkour a few years ago and started their monthly â&#x20AC;&#x153;jams,â&#x20AC;?gatherings of enthusiasts in different cities around the Bay Area, and now teaches â&#x20AC;&#x153;pureâ&#x20AC;? parkour, venomously eschewing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;free runningâ&#x20AC;? approach of wall f lips and showy tricks. His goal for me today is to land a double kong, whatever that is, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got about 20 minutes to do so before the next class starts. So we run some jumps. With unstoppable confidence, Fulmer pushes me to the next difficulty level as soon as I complete each maneuver. I leap up a large block, navigate myself over with my hands and land poorly on my side. Whoops! Try again: good. Next! Leap atop the block, jump down, shoulder-roll. Good. Next! Jump over the entire block, shoulder roll. Great! As tiring as this is, I seem to be making fast progress, and after some forward and backward cat-walking on a balance beam, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m full of genuine anticipation when Fulmer says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to square up two large blocks together. This is the double kong, he

says, and bolts into a run. Slapping the blocks once each with his palms, he leaps them both in a single bound, lands in a run and coils back to talk me through the move. I run, I jump, I stall. Strike one. I run, I jump, I tumble. Strike two. Run faster, jump higher, and keep your head up, Fulmer says. Motion is the key, he stresses, adding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of parkour is just catching up to your own momentum.â&#x20AC;? He tells me to â&#x20AC;&#x153;pop hard,â&#x20AC;? look forward, throw my legs up over my head as I go over the blocks and to somehow, some way, land on my feet. What the hell. There are mats. So I tear off into a run, pop as hard as I can and invert my lower body in the air. I push off the first block with my palms, then whiz by and slap the second. I enter that magic zone where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not thinking anymore and am utterly stupefied when I notice that I have somehow, some way, landed on my feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great!â&#x20AC;? Fulmer says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the double kong! Now you can jump over car hoods.â&#x20AC;?

wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to jump over cars anytime soon, but I knew I wanted to hit some actual streets with Brett Robert. A 30-year-old teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aide, Robert is one of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most high-profile traceurs and a mentor of sorts to people like Christian Fairfax, 18, and Michael Corley, 19, who gathered on a recent morning at a local high school to train. While Corley and Fairfax practice running flips and precision jumps along tall, skinny banisters, Robert, somewhat sheepishly, admits that he got into parkour the way most doâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by watching videos of it on YouTube. About two years ago, a nasty judo injury had torn his kneeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meniscus, and he was walking on a cane for four months when he discovered Oleg Vorslavâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Dvinsk Clan â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Le Parkourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; video. He threw the cane away and started practicing on his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming from a punk-rock background,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;at first I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If only I could find someone to teach me!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But then I was like, whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;do it yourself.â&#x20AC;? One might never guess from his ebullient spirit and fluidity of motion, but Robert is an ex-heroin user and alcoholic who drank and used drugs for a decade before entering a group home six years ago. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been clean ever since, and evades the go-to motivational speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance of comparing the high of

parkour to the high of heroin. Yet parkour plays a part in his recovery, he says, because â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really, really positive. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like going back and healing all of that stuff. A way of making amends.��&#x20AC;? The tight-knit parkour community, Robert says, is where he finally found his place to belong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After years of searching in the bottle and in the spoon, I found a spiritual solution and a way to stay clean, a way to feel normal without getting high,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freedom from addiction is more than I could have hoped for, but I still wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until I found parkour a few years after that I found a path to happiness.â&#x20AC;? As with the younger people he trains, he runs me through some precision jumps from varying heights, stressing the absorption of impact. I learn speed jumps and speed-safety jumpsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;essentially side vaults over obstacles too high to leap overâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and we do some monkey jumps. A concrete surface changes everything psychologically, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m flinging my body sideways through the air and double-konging anything outside the gym. Still, the act of applying skills in a somewhat real-life settingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;walls, benches, banistersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;feels much more renegade and authentic outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Authenticâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;pureâ&#x20AC;? are words tossed around in the parkour community quite often; message boards provide endless and sometimes acrimonious debate on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;pureâ&#x20AC;? parkour, and as Fulmer told me, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge rift between the practitioners of â&#x20AC;&#x153;free runningâ&#x20AC;? and parkour. Parkour is all about efficiency; free running stresses a more lackadaisical approach to the urban environment; none of it means anything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the controversies that happen in parkour, they happen online,â&#x20AC;? Robert says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They never happen in person.â&#x20AC;? Fulmer noticed this static disconnect between traceurs, and started the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly Parkour jams, where the online community gets together and trains face-to-face in parks, schools, buildings and beaches around the Bay Area. The next one is tomorrow, and every traceur Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to has invited me regardless of my beginner status. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the long drive or the chance of rain or even any perceived inability on my part that keeps me away. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so sore I can barely type, let alone vault my tired body over some trash cans. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people within the parkour community,â&#x20AC;? Robert says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;are afraid that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to experience massive growth from getting more media attention; from there, being more commercial . . . But I personally think parkourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to become massively popular, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard.â&#x20AC;?

Rocket yoga promises to get students to fitness nirvana faster By Dani Burlison

t takes steadfast devotion and an elephantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory to keep track of the continuously growing styles of yoga springing up around the world and the countless strings of studios that house the numerous classes. The basic, traditional yoga forms of the East, such as Iyengar, hatha and ashtanga, have morphed into various styles that appeal to those of us in the West by bringing us such tangible results as toned arms and a sweet ass. With 142 nonstop movements of intense strengthening asanas (postures) that focus primarily on repeatedly lifting oneself off of the ground within a 75-minute session, rocket yoga is no exception. Each class is guaranteed to heat its practitioners up, get them sweating profusely and kick the detoxification into high gear before they can weakly mutter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Om Namah Shivaya.â&#x20AC;? For many, simply hearing the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;rocket yogaâ&#x20AC;? may conjure visions of sweaty WWE wrestlers pounding Red Bulls while Pantera guitar riffs blast through the air. The asanas are surely accompanied by moaning and possibly even desperate cries for help as beginners limp sheepishly out the back door while the prowrestlers continue their testosterone fest. According to rocket yoga creator Larry Schultz, however, these fears should be as tenderly wiped away as a Tibetan sand mandala. Rocket yoga, he assures, is for everyone. Rocket yoga is rooted deeply in ashtanga yoga, which was brought to the West from Mysore, India, by K. Pattabhi Jois, or Guruji as his devotees lovingly called him until his death in May 2009. Ashtanga practice swept through the West like wild fire in the 1990s and was promptly picked up by celebrities such as Madonna, Sting and even that wacky Willem Dafoe. The vigorous style of asanas includes a primary series that leads into another hardcore and intimidating six levels that very few of even the most serious yoga students manage to ascend. The goal of this intense style of bending, balancing and lifting posturesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;intended to flow along with each

breathâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is to produce balance, strength and clarity of mind for the practitioners. Schultz developed rocket yoga as a form of exercise for the Grateful Dead to keep them trucking from city to city during their many tours. He took the often vigorous and intense ashtanga yoga style and modified it to be fun, exciting and much easier on beginners than the progressively difficult and challenging ashtanga regimen. Though the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;rocketâ&#x20AC;? tends to imply that the practice is more quickly paced and therefore more difficult, Schultz claims that by taking the hierarchy out of the practice and introducing beginners to the advanced poses, rocket yoga creates a more enjoyable and beneficial situation for everyone. Schultz, along with his wife, Marie, founded Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yoga in San Francisco in 1989 and began teaching classes as well as holding teacher training courses for those serious about learning and sharing his invigorating style. The Schultzes continue to share their abundance of energy and passion for rocket yoga by opening a new studio in the North Bay. While the studio in Glen Ellen focuses on its specialties of workshops and yoga teacher trainings, classes may be offered at a future date. There is no doubt that rocket yoga challenges the body by taking individual practice to new levels. And surely it challenges the mind as well, provoking such questions as â&#x20AC;&#x153;How in the hell am I supposed to get my legs to do that?â&#x20AC;? If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid of buckets of sweat pouring into your eyes and burning your corneas, and the sheer thought of huffing and puffing your way to a connection with your inner guru excites and motivates you, rocket yoga may be your next step as a yogi. According to Schultz, his rocket style does indeed get you there faster.

Having fun is the first rule of Zumba By Michael Houghton

was in a serious rut, bored on an existential level with my exercise routine. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been biking the same route, lifting the same weights and making sun salutations through the same beginnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yoga all out of crushing and stagnant habit. And no matter how distracting the TV on the wall was, being stuck on a treadmill was feeling like, well, being stuck on a treadmill. I felt like I was f logging myself for past transgressions. I desperately needed a change. And it was time to step things up. Years ago, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d read a quote from the Dalai Lama that one of the secrets to happiness is to do something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done at least once a month. Or was it once a week? Honestly, all Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been able to achieve is once in a while, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an idea that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come back to every time the doldrums require conquering. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found that this something is best if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least a little out of character for me, especially at times when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not so sure I like my character very much. The thing I was most looking for was fun with a capital Fâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that in the f lush of moving and grooving, I would forget that I was also getting exercise. I kept thinking of that line in Fight Club about the fighters starting to â&#x20AC;&#x153;see everything differentlyâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fight Club gets to be your reason for going to the gym and keeping your hair cut short and cutting your nails.â&#x20AC;? I wanted something of my own like that, but without all the face punching. So I picked Zumba.

01.20.10-01.26.10

Zumba is one of the latest crazes in fitness: a combination of aerobics with Latin dance and whatever other high-energy, hip-wiggling dance styles the instructor decides to include in her choreography, from hip-hop to African to belly dancing and South Sea shanties. As best as I can tell, the choice of music (always fast and often techno- and rapinf lected Latin rock) and choreography varies from instructor to instructor. Some make it girlier than others, but all make it girly. Because, if nothing else, Zumba is almost entirely by and for women. So there I was, rolling up to the throng of women milling outside the doors, waiting for the classâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and there they were, immediately surprised and thrilled that a man was going to be joining them. I explained that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done some Afro-Cuban dance a few years ago and knew the basic samba step, so I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going in totally cold. They reassured me that, though it was confusing at first because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much how-to instruction, I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry. Everyone is confused initially. The first few songs, I did OK. The steps were reasonably easy to follow. Sure, I felt pretty silly prancing and hip-bomping through the more feminine moves and even sillier with all the punctuating cries of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come on, ladies!â&#x20AC;? and the high pitched whoooos. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be honest: with this particular teacher, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a straight man, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely got to be pretty secure in your sexualityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or at least find all the gender-bending sashaying pretty amusing. Fortunately, female friends had told me that just being brave enough to show up there gets you lots of extra credit with a whole class full of ladies. But then the â&#x20AC;&#x153;routineâ&#x20AC;? songs started, and I was completely lost. Every couple steps, something new was happening, and I was always behind, off balance, spinning spastically, my brain buzzing with confusion. Every time I started to vaguely understand the choreography, the song was over and the next was even more confusing. Somewhere in there, though, I was still having fun. All the genuine, unforced grinning and laughter of the other dancers enjoying the class put me at ease and let me laugh at my own mistakes. And when it was over (after three whole songs of confusion), I was sweating like a squeezed sponge and pleasantly exhausted. How did that happen? Before I left, one of my classmates exclaimed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You did awesome!â&#x20AC;? She said Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done way better than she had in her first class, which felt good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about getting all the steps,â&#x20AC;? she encouraged me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who cares, as long as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving and having fun? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the steps eventuallyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just keep coming back!â&#x20AC;? So I did. I came back later that week, and now have been going twice a week for the last few months. And I did pick the steps upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; slowly. I still got confused, but I stopped worrying about it, and just smiled. I got better at recognizing the patterns, and at jumping in one cycle later when I missed the changes, as I still often do. I learned that the better your form, and the more you swivel your hips, the better the exercise, and

THE BOHEMIAN



that an hour of hip swiveling feels like you accidentally did 200 sit-ups. And I started really looking forward to each class. I also noticed changes in my body almost immediately. The too-tight-aroundmy-belly jacket of a week before was now loose. My initially sore knees and ankles started feeling strong and lubricated, no longer crackling all the time, in ways that years of biking and yoga had never fixed. I found myself randomly jumping and skipping (at age 37) just because I could. My old belt has come in two notches. And I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really living in my body and enjoying its f low of movement in a way that all these years of being a smart guy failed to give me. I also remembered something that we, as adults, seem to forget: the nature of real fun. Everything I can think of that is real funâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not just watching a funny movie or cracking a joke, but side-splitting joyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

always involves making a complete ass of yourself and no longer being embarrassed about it. We spend so much of our time trying to look cool, to never let down our guard of dignity, that we forget that fallingoff-a-chair laughing only happens when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve let go of being so damned uptight. So now I am seeing things a little differently. I feel more confident. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m downright evangelical about my newly reclaimed health. A few classmates call me the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zumba King.â&#x20AC;? (I reply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much competition.â&#x20AC;?) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m even thinking of buying dance sneakers. Sure, I still occasionally feel like a Brazilian tranny on a Carnivale f loat, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m OK with that. Those trannies are clearly having a blast. And now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the one telling the newbies at the end of the class, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who cares if you got all the steps perfect? All that matters is that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving, and that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having fun.â&#x20AC;?

Higher minds have looked to fitness fads and found them good

NANNETTE

01.20.10-01.26.10

By Gretchen Giles

;

ast month the American Council on Exercise released its top 10 exercise trends for 2010, underscoring the wisdom that we want to save money while we save time while we save what we can of our bodies while we use the latest gadgets while being trained by instructors who have actually themselves been trained. Basing their results on a fairly exhaustive survey of fitness professionals and club owners, the ACE predicts that this year it will all be about . . . Cost-Conscious Workouts Less personal training time, perhaps even less gymmembership time, will be spent as the Great Recession drags endlessly on, capturing too many of us in its sooty tide. Of course, exercising and staying fit are important jobseeking tools, as they help to abate depression and act to clear the brain. Plus, it gives you something to do until Oprah. Buddy System Group training rather than personal training marks this year as belt-tighteners look to shave more than just inches by having small knots of strangers sweat alongside them to split the cost. Thirty As a Magic Number More of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spend the languor of an entire hour on our fitness routinesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;OK, most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spend even five minutesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; making intense half-hour workouts the trend. The thinking is, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so fast, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even remember it!

THE BOHEMIAN



Exergaming Perhaps the most ungainly word of the decade, â&#x20AC;&#x153;exergamingâ&#x20AC;? refers to engaging Wii and other electronic games as a prompt for movement. Health clubs and gyms are embracing the trend as it means less actual human instructors on the payroll. Actual humans seem to like it just fine anyway. Boom Boom Rooms That young crop of new elders just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to give up and die the way their grandparents were, and to that end are exercising more and staying healthy longer. Expect to share a mat with an AARP member who can kick your ass before breakfast, and remember to thank them. Like in Real Life Evolved from rehabilitative therapy, functional training focuses on building strength through a focus on disparate muscle sets with specialized equipment. Those TRX pulleys, developed by a former Navy SEAL and easily adapted to an office or home door frame, are predicted to grow in popularity as more folks choose to get a quick informal workout near the copier or the stove. Getting It Not wanting to let the great opportunity of a crisis go by without acting, an increasing number of us will get off our more-than-amples and exercise and diet this year. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually believe it, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the experts say. License at the Door As consumers become more savvy about their exercise dollars, so too are we becoming more demanding of our instructors. Certification and licensing is on the rise as more employers

expect their trainers to have had some, um, training. Good news for everyone. Novelty Niche If getting your heart rate up for 30 minutes a day and eating less were all it took to lose weight, everyone would do it. Right? Not so much. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a flighty species, and the prospect of exotic exercise gets our hearts and brains pumping faster than a wind sprint up 10 flights of stairs. Most of all, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to notice that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exercising, and if that means undulating to Bollywood soundtracks or somehow keeping a slippery hula hoop in motion, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an Ab for That As a Certain Someone in our office who has selfishly lost 16 pounds over the last few months simply by using the free Lose It iPhone app can attest, knowing exactly how many calories there are in that can help a girl decide whether or not to savagely stuff it in her craw and rapidly gulp it down. This Certain Someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who really should think of others by eating much more than her iPhone currently allowsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;says that knowing the calorie count of everything and her own daily limit is like being given a fresh wad of cash every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just decide how to spend it,â&#x20AC;? she says, the hollows of her cheeks mimicking the mandibular ways of runway models. Ranging from free to not-so-much, iPhone does indeed have apps for everything from managing kettle balls to practicing yoga available at that online store of theirs. Not for the iPhone but recommended by the ACE are the tracking items GoWear Fit and Fitbit. Our Certain Someone could probably recommend them, too, if she werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so weakened by selfishly maintaining her ideal healthy weight while making it seem so easy . . .

peaking of those darned exotic exercises, the mash-up is in, particularly when it comes to the core. Witness piloxing, a combination of pilates and boxing. According to the exhausted young reporter that the Times of London sent to the gym to try this stuff out, such cross-training was designed to create â&#x20AC;&#x153;an army of sleek, sexy, powerful womenâ&#x20AC;? who can high-kick an intruder in the face while maintaining a healthy and engaged lower back and strengthening their Kegels. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TenPilates, a caffeinated hepup that results in an aerobic high somehow achieved while prone on those torture sleighs known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;reformer beds.â&#x20AC;? Spin-Lates has participants jumping from the stationary bike after 30 minutes of sprints and uphill climbs directly to the unstable playground of the proformer machine for half an hour of ungainly gravity-sucking stretches that cause muscles to freak out as they scramble to stabilize. Eeeevil . . . And finally, the hot new exercise that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to try because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only been introduced in 21 cosmopolitan cities around the world (think Sydney and Manhattan, not American Canyon and Cloverdale) is Jukari. Developed by Reebok and Cirque du Soleil, Jukari not surprisingly requires lots of coolio Reebok-branded equipment and special sleek Reebok-branded clothing and could probably benefit from a new pair of Reebokinscribed tennies but essentially can be done by anyone with a rope and a pair of sweats. A group workout, Jukari has participants swinging en masse on trapeze as well as doing standing pushups and other more traditional moves transposed upright. It looks suspiciously easy to hoist oneself up on a bar and fly across the room with Reeboked knees held high, but if our fitness routines have taught us even one single thing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that nothing, not even plain old playing, is as easy as it looks.

RVPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Miserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a feast of farce By David Templeton

F

e are a bad gender, I agree, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you see me as the exception?â&#x20AC;? So says Valère, a resourceful servant, to his lover, Elise (the daughter of his master), in response to her disparaging remarks about the male of the species in Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Miser. This exchange would appear to be the set-up for some sort of battle of the sexes, but anyone who has ever read Molière will know that the great French playwright and social critic never fought merely one battle at a time. With a body of theatrical work that easily stands as one of the greatest in history, Molière (who would have turned 388 on Jan. 15; happy birthday, Mo!) was famous for his satirical jabs at everyone and everything, and The Miser is a fine example. The just-opened production by the Ross Valley Players (enjoying its 80th anniversary this year) nicely exacerbates the social mayhem by unlocking the story from its 17th-century roots, using a modern translation by David Chambers that dispenses with the traditional rhyming couplets. Directed with a strong command of physical comedy by Bruce Vieira, the show serves as a perfect entry point for anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet experienced the shootinggallery funhouse that is a Molière farce. Elise (whose earthy enthusiasm is well played by Kelly Rinehart) wants to marry

the dashing Valère (Chad Yarish), but knows that her tyrannical father Harpagon, the miser of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title, will see no financial benefit in the marriage. When she enlists the support of her foppish brother, ClĂŠante (brilliantly played by the physically flippyfloppy Andrew Gruen), she finds that he, too, has fallen in love, with the supremely youngsweet-and-innocent Mariane (a pitch-perfect Beth Deitchman). The siblingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan to force their father to grant each of them the right to marry is thwarted when Harpagon (played by GrayWolfâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yep, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as a comically paranoid blend of selfish calculation and pitiable self-delusion) announces his own intentions of marrying Mariane. Complicating matters are the machinations of the sexy, debt-ridden matchmaker Frosine (played with hilarious commitment by Courtney Walsh) and the ongoing battle of wits between Valère and Master Jacques (Ben Knoll), Harpagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beleaguered chef and footman. There is also the matter of Harpagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10,000 gold pieces, which he has recently hidden in the garden (guarded by a pack of Dobermans), and about which he constantly frets and worries. It is the wealthy but stingy Harpagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obsession with riches that is the trampoline for much of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humor, Harpagon lurching about in filthy old clothes because he is to cheap to spend money on anything that is not necessary. When he announces that he has promised Elise to an affluent foreigner (â&#x20AC;&#x153;He only exploits the most resource-rich Third World countriesâ&#x20AC;?), the plot is pushed into overdrive, resulting in the rapidly escalating misunderstandings for which French farce is known. The secret to this kind of thing is pace, and despite the scriptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slight lack of focus in the second half, director Vieira keeps things spinning along at a pleasantly frisky pace. Though technically set in the 1600s, the modern-language text effectively places the story in a time-traversing world of its own, an attribute which Vieira highlights with his clever costuming scheme. Beautifully realized by costumer Michael A. Berg, the idea is that every period between Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day and our own finds some expression in the smashup wardrobe worn by The Miserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many characters. Someone might be wearing a Napoleonic coat, a bowler hat and sunglasses, for example. Just about everyone appears in tennis shoes at one point or another. David Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage set is just as clever, depicting Harpagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s once-opulent home as a palace left to deteriorate by its masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pennypinching neglect. A nice recurring sight gag is Harpagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s furniture, of which every chair, table and fireplace grate has been chained down so that no one can steal it. Under Vieiraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inventive hand, Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various pieces add up to a very satisfying and eye-pleasing whole. Harpagon may be content to serve his guests a dinner of bread crumbs and weak tea, but with this enjoyable production of The Miser, Ross Valley Players present Molièreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treat as a tasty feast of theatrical pleasures.

havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read Arizona writer Thomas Cobbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1987 novel Crazy Heart, although it was praised by both Kinky Friedman and Donald Barthelme, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry. The novel might have provided a key for the failure of guts in the Sundancean movie Crazy Heart. The film plays softball, despite the hefty acting by Jeff Bridges. Crazy Heart gives Bridges a belly-baring role, his sliteyed Bad Blake as a kind of Bad Lebowski, a morose, sweet-talking satyr drinking his way to the grave. Bad Blake is an outlaw country-western musician playing far-apart and none-toolucrative gigs all over the West. He travels via an ancient 1978 Chevy Suburban, and he slaps together sets with pickup bands that he meets just before showtime. And in his few sober moments, Blake lives with the humiliation of having been commercially surpassed by a country superstar named Billy Sweet (Colin Farrell), who was once one of his backup musicians. Touring in Santa Fe, Bad meets a former Oklahoma newspaper reporter named Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal), who lets him pick her up. Typically, he has a great line for her, cutting off her questions: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I wanna talk about is how bad you make this room look. Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize what a dump it was.â&#x20AC;?

There goes journalistic ethics as far as the movie is concerned; Jean keeps covering his story after sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slept with him, which bothered me more than the near 30-year age difference between them is going to bother some women. Jean is single-parenting a young son. What truly concerns Jean is the question of what kind of influence this charismatic wreck of a man will be on her child. Add a long-distance factor, and the fragile relationship grows even shakier. Robert Duvall, who co-produced, plays a clean and sober bar owner in Houston who is also Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentor, and like Jean, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a character who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really live on his own terms. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there to echo Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legend. Scott Cooper, a first-time director, has nailed some details of a musicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, such as an argument between Bad and a sound man that has just the right amount of tension. Bridges does his own songs. Despite the credited input by T Bone Burnett, none of the tunes are really memorable, but you sink into them anyway. Bridges sings with the flair of a born performer, and the encircling camera gives the scenes some rhythm. Cooper also deserves props for a surprise he brings in, the unexpectedly kind way Billy Sweet behaves to Bad. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unusual in a movie to find out that a character named Sweet will behave sweetly, especially when played by Farrell, a chronic misbehaver himself. But there are other matters that Cooper canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to get straight, such as the question of what strata of fame Bad Blake occupies. Bad plays the lounges in bowling alleys and carries his own guitar. But he still has an L.A. manager who loves him and keeps tabs on him. The way Cooper goes in for a close-up on Bad when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pounding the drinks back says it all: Crazy Heart tells us that once Bad Blake unplugs his worst habit, all of his problems are over. This is a two-dimensional take on a drunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character, as two-dimensional as a drunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belief that drinking will solve all his problems. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the matter of Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truly banal visualization of Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stab at rehab. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a meeting under the aspens, a setting as glossy as the commercials for the drying-out clinics on morning TV. Crazy Heart doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scratch the other things that might have embittered Blake, the way his fortunes changed as the public taste changed, the feeling of fury as age took him over, and the bitterness of not having much to show for himself after years of work. What integrity Crazy Heart doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t borrow from Bridges it picks up from the glorious wide-open-spaces cinematography by Barry Markowitz (Sling Blade). Ultimately, it may be that Bridges is more damned fun to watch as a drunkard. His Bad has a hostile, coolly funny mean streak that goes away when he gets dry and sensitive. The role, then, is a conduit for Bridgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; upcoming performance in True Grit, where he will assay a really titanic punisher of the whiskey, Rooster Cogburn. Watching Crazy Heart, though, you think of that story of Greta Garbo leaving the theater after seeing Cocteauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beauty and the Beast, and saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give me back my beast.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Crazy Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Jan. 22, at the Rialto Cinemas Lakeside, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

Eclectic Soul Songwriting juggernaut Chuck Prophet has been a Bay Area fixture since his early days in the protoexperimental rock outfit Green on Red, but far more rewarding has been his prolific solo output. ÂĄLet Freedom Ring!, his ninth studio album, has the outsiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generally referred to as Americana music with an over-the-border bent. Recorded in Mexico City during the first panic of the swine f lu scare, the album has a jagged anxiety of shifting tectonic plates. The chugging minor-key tune â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sonny Listonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bluesâ&#x20AC;? traipses along to kick things off as if on a crumbling ledge. Slowly congealing into torn-love songs replete with the usual Prophet trademarksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;such as the inimitable way he hollows out his throat and nose to drawl his long oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the lingering metaphor is about America, el Norte, where â&#x20AC;&#x153;the hawk cripples the dove.â&#x20AC;? Always a passionate live performer, Prophet headlines on Friday, Jan. 22, at the Mystic for the KRSH 95.9-FM listener appreciation party. Jesse DeNatale opens. 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. $15. 707.765.2121.

Classical 101 The Santa Rosa Symphony this weekend presents a program of American composers including Barber and Copland, but all eyes these days are on Elliott Carter. Few people live to be 101 years old, but Carter, still alive and active in his Manhattan apartment, is defying the wheels of time past the centennial mark. Not that his age should steal the attention from his compositional powers, which over the years successfully adapted to the modernistic touches of the late 20th century with acumen and skill. In 1944, Carter was commissioned a piece to celebrate the liberation of Paris in World War II; the resulting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holiday Overtureâ&#x20AC;? is a layered and optimistic work, to be performed this weekend. With guest conductor JoAnn Falletta conducting Michael Ludwig in John Coriglianoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perennial favorite â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Red Violin Concerto,â&#x20AC;? on Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Monday, Jan. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;25, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. Saturday, 2pm and 8pm; Sunday, 3pm; Monday, 8pm. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$42. 707.546.8742.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sahl, Folks Jay Lenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a bad rap these days; he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help it if his network is clueless, and the stirring resentment over his mere presence is spilling over into unwarranted attacks on his style of comedy. The same might be said for Mort Sahl back in the day. Hailed as an inf luence by Leno, Lenny Bruce and Woody Allen, Sahl in the 1960s dressed in a casual sweater with a newspaper in hand, and delivered jazzlike, stream-of-consciousness zingers about racial politics, free love, misguided wars and whatever snapped into his sharp, quick mind. Usually, it riled the masses, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Herb Caen from urging him to run for president of the United States. Dick Gregory, one of the first black comedians to address civil rights issues to a white audience, actually did run for president in 1968; he now calls America â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most dishonest, ungodly, unspiritual nation that ever existed in the history of the planet.â&#x20AC;? The two comedy legends appear Saturday, Jan. 23, at the 142 Throckmorton Theater. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $38â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$48. 415.383.9600.

Exhaustinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Austen Exactly when the glut of Jane Austen literary takeoffs utilizing bloodsucking vampires, groaning zombies, enraged pharmacists, psychotic webmasters, possessed iPhone apps or whatever ridiculous modern trendy twist comes next will end is anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess. One thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people are still reading the original Austen books. Indispensable to the Austen fan is Susannah Carsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magnetic anthology A Truth Universally Acknowledged: Why We Read Jane Austen, in which 33 writers from Eudora Welty and Virginia Woolf to Somerset Maugham and C. S. Lewis dwell on the majesty and details of Austenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. Amy Heckerling tells how she adapted Emma into the 1996 movie Clueless, while contemporary writers like Anna Quindlan extract specific plot points and character traits for an engaging portrait of Austenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal. Carson discusses the book on Thursday, Jan. 21, at Copperfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books. 3900-A Bel Aire Plaza, Hwy. 29, at Trancas St., Napa. 7pm. Free. 707.252.8002.

Since their wonderful 2001 release, Girls Can Tell, the Austinbased band has continually outdone itself in a public experiment of re-imagination. Four excellent albums beyond Girls, the band this week slows down with Transference, which is more arty and less oomphy than their previous album, the weirdly titled Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. The studio serves as the fifth member here, as leadoff track â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before Destructionâ&#x20AC;? sets the tone of cobbled recordings mixed as a re-edit of demos and professional sheen. With this semi-psychedelic tingeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and allusions to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hurdy Gurdy Manâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucy in the Sky With Diamondsâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;there are the usual Spoon touches: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Written in Reverse,â&#x20AC;? with Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manic yowl; and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who Makes Your Money,â&#x20AC;? with all the obtuse imagery Spoon have become known for. Support for Spoon is provided by NPR, which streamed the album a week before its release and which, according to local record stores, is now more responsible for selling records than Top 40 radio, Rolling Stone or that once-dominant cable network that airs Jersey Shore combined. That the power of community radio should reign over commercial media outlets is reďŹ&#x201A;ective of our new times, but that fact shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t obscure Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immense talent, nor a good headphone listen or three. Also out this week is The Colossus, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;comebackâ&#x20AC;? album from Columbus DJ/Producer RJD2. RJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous record, The Third Hand, was a troubled affair; its borderline Jack Johnson acoustic guitar ballads were a sharp and unsuccessful departure from his usual minorkey crinkled hip-hop textures, and hopes were high after a lead-off single featured beats and horn stabs. But on the whole, The Colossus is just another retro-rock/soul album with sad lyrics sung too earnestly, reminiscent of Gnarls Barkleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last record or Jamiroquaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s later work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Games You Can Winâ&#x20AC;? boasts barely a beat, navel-gazing into itself, while the runway-ready â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Glowâ&#x20AC;? cops major-seventh chords and tambourines in a version of lazy beach life as seen from a Midwest window. RJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently started his own label and reissued his magniďŹ cent ďŹ rst two albums, Deadringer and Since We Last Spoke, both of which still tower as skyscrapers of accessible instrumental hip-hop, and a better place to start than the shaky walls of The Colossus.

<0C278=6D?C74E814B Frobeck could be a jam band, but instead streamline varied elements into a solid groove.

1^X[X]V ?^X]c

Frobeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new disc a funky soul vaccination By Karl Byrn

C

he Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based quartet Frobeck fashion a complex blend of funk, soul, pop, rock, gospel and jazz with a simple appeal that can bring unexpected attention. Upon winning the 2008 NORBAY award for Best Rock Band, guitarist and vocalist Kris Dilbeck says he initially thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a rock band, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a funk band,â&#x20AC;? though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come to a new realization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our shows,â&#x20AC;? he says today, â&#x20AC;&#x153;can get pretty rocking.â&#x20AC;? Vocalist and keyboardist Spencer Burrows notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our music is hard to niche; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot happening.â&#x20AC;? Fans of regional jam band scenes have taken notice, and Frobeck â&#x20AC;&#x153;can be kind of like chameleons,â&#x20AC;? Burrows says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because we have all these styles. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a jam band, but the fact that we could be is kind of nice.â&#x20AC;? Frobeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funky, rocking jams find sweet focus on their recently released third disc Other Side of the Light, which the band will feature at a record-release party this Friday at Hopmonk Tavern. Dilbeck and Burrows write warm originals that mix upbeat pop-rock, like the Steely Dan/Boz Scaggsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style vibe of the title track, with traditional soul movers in the style of Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles soul movers like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Say.â&#x20AC;? Further creative excitement is generated when bassist Steve Froberg, who played with Burrows in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s with Eric Lindell and the Reds, and new drummer Paul Spina, from the reggae

act Groundation, expand the songs with jazz-based artistry and monster grooves. Talented guest vocalists and instrumentalists alike give Other Side of the Light traces of reggae, folk-blues and jazz improv. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hard thing is, if you pull from all those styles, you can have a record thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely disconnected,â&#x20AC;? says Dilbeck, who produced the disc with engineer and mixer (and original drummer) Cory Stuck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a really good job of bringing it all into this one thing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a jazz song, then all of a sudden a country song. The album is one piece of work.â&#x20AC;? Burrows, who met Dilbeck in the Sonoma State University choir in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s and again when they both later attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, enthuses that â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really getting our sound.â&#x20AC;? Other Side of the Light, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;feels like we found it. Whatever it is we sound like, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there.â&#x20AC;? The songwriting team is comfortable with that sound being eclectic and evolving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inf luenced by together and separately is what makes up Frobeck,â&#x20AC;? says Dilbeck, who notes that the four diverse musicians find common ground admiring Bay Area horn funk legends Tower of Power. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Frobeck,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel I have to write a certain style of music.â&#x20AC;? Other Side of the Light is also a technical move forward, recorded at the prestigious Prairie Sun Studios using the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory earnings from a 2008 battle of the bands at the Mystic Theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recording and songwriting process develops better each time,â&#x20AC;? says Dilbeck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The arrangements are a little more developed and a little more interesting on this record.â&#x20AC;? Burrows adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re physically better players than we were over the last years. You keep getting better at your craft.â&#x20AC;? Frobeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 game plan includes lining up professional management and expanded regional touring. Burrows imagines the coming year will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;very much like a boiling pointâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boiling, and it takes that one degree to get over the top. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got people talking about us, starting to hear us, and this year is going to be a huge boost.â&#x20AC;? That boost is really about connecting with audiences, as both songwriters proudly note the personal nature of the new material. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can write about us or see if that matches up to or vibes with the problems or happiness of other people,â&#x20AC;? Burrows says, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our hopes is to help the local scene by inspiring people to get out and listen to original music. We invite you to come out and be part of our journey.â&#x20AC;? Frobeck celebrate â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Other Side of the Lightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with a record release party on Friday, Jan. 22, at Hopmonk Tavern, 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol.

Patrick Ball once again inhabits the voice of Turlough O’Carolan ebastopol musician and actor Patrick Ball had one of his early successes with a recording of Celtic harp music by Ireland’s legendary 17th-century harpist Turlough O’Carolan. O’Carolan, a beloved storyteller, composer and world-class Irish carouser, is a character so vivid and colorful that Ball eventually began thinking about doing a show in which he would do more than just play the music of the O’Carolan—he would become him. With a script co-written with Peter Glazer, Ball has now performed the one-man play O’Carolan’s Farewell to Music hundreds of times, and twice in short runs at Spreckels Performing Arts Center in Rohnert Park. The last time he brought the show to Spreckels was nearly 10 years ago, so fans of authentic Celtic music, and aficionados of classic Old World storytelling have been excited ever since it was announced that the celebrated solo show would have a full three-weekend run as part of the theater’s full-season series of oneand two-actor plays. Here Ball actually portrays two characters, O’Carolan as well as his longtime friend the poet Charles MacCabe, who recounts his early meeting with the famous musician, their growing friendship and the recurring conflicts between them regarding English rule of Ireland. Ball’s renowned gift for storytelling is shoved up a few big notches when he merges it into the voice and dialect of the two characters, each of whom are pretty fair storytellers themselves. Word is that there is high demand for seats in Spreckels’ smallish Condiotti Experimental Theater, where all of the center’s theatrical shows will be staged this year. Folks who’ve seen the show several times plan to bring their children to be dazzled and entertained by O’Carolan’s unstoppable life-force and musical power—as well as by the effusive charm of Patrick Ball himself. O’Carolan’s Farewell to Music plays Thursday–Sunday from Jan. 21 through Feb. 7. Thursday at 7:30pm; Friday–Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2:30pm. Spreckels Performing Arts Center, 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. $21–$24. 707.588.3400. David Templeton

Sonoma Enivro Film Fest looks at the world he rains are here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still dark by 5:30pm and spending stats report that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all hiding out winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst by going to the movies. The Sonoma Environmental Film Festival, therefore, is perfectly aligned with our wintry sights. Now in its third year, the SEFF features documentaries this year on gorillas, climate change, the oceanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, Amazonian natives, Tibetan dams, urban sustainability, the politics of Big Organics and visionary thinking, among others. Running Jan. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;24 at the Sonoma Valley Womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club, the festival begins and ends with feature films and offers a New Orleans buffet lunch on Saturday that beginsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;per the lessons of Katrinaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with dessert (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life can change, eat dessert firstâ&#x20AC;? goes the motto). Other special events within the festival include a screening of Numen: The Nature of Plants (above) followed by a discussion of the healing properties of the natural world paneled by members of the Sonoma County Herb Exchange, United Plant Savers and a rep from the Traditional Medicinals tea company (Jan. 23). Local heroes are featured on Sunday with screenings of A Return to Dry Farming examining area vineyards and The Story of STRAW, which finds Peter Coyote narrating the evolution of a fourth grade Sonoma County class project now a 20-mile restorative program run by the Bay Institute. The fest starts on Friday with A Touch of Spice, a Greek film that takes on food as love and features a reception with island fare and ends with Blue Heavens, a love story set in Kyrgyzstan in which a vagabond in search of his father falls in love with a woman trapped in an abusive marriage. All variety of issues large and small show in between. Perfect for the introspection of the rains.

AMAZON KINDLE Hello, I met you Friday June 27 at the Russian River Brewing Company on Fourth St. in Santa Rosa. 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. And she sipped a little beer and read from her Amazon kindle. I would like to get in touch with this girl and ask her to edit my book. She is a perfect candidate for my book. Hope to hear from you. Phil. 274972
