2D33;4?>B8C8E4 I attended a cuddle party in Sebastopol last month, and had an incredible experience there. I was disappointed in the recent article you published about these events (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Group Grope,â&#x20AC;? Feb. 10), since it sounded like the author had made up her mind long before she even attended the event. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my age or the location that made the difference, but I found this event to be incredibly nurturing, safe and a wonderful way to fill my tactile reservoir since I am choosing not to date for a while. I urge your readers to check it out for themselves and make up their own minds.

LLCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to build a grape-processing factory nearly as big as a football field in my backyard, or I can be a fool who does nothing while the county rewrites the laws of the land to allow it to happen. This facility will replace an apple orchard that runs along Highway 116 from Occidental Road to Atkinson Road just north of Sebastopol. But guess what? When even a dolt like me begins to read the documents, he can see that this is completely inconsistent with Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly revised general plan. The land-use designation of this site is rural residential, which absolutely prohibits a project of this nature. Instead of using the existing laws of the land to protect the rights of the individual, the county can choose to amend the general plan and change the land-use designation to diverse ag (DA), thereby stripping away these rights and protections. But the two parcels still can not be changed to DA, because even combined, they fall 2.4 acres short of the

countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s required 10-acre minimum for DA zoning. Yet it looks like the county can just amend the general plan again and create a special policy for the Best Family Investors so they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to meet the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirement of 10 acres. Bottom line: the parcels do not have the proper zoning. Rezoning this land would create an island of DA zoning that does not border and is not adjacent to any other DA parcel. Spot zoning is illegal. This project would create all the resentment, frustration and conflict that occurs when government grants special privileges to one property owner without extending these privileges to the surrounding parcels. Apparently even if something looks like spot zoning, walks like spot zoning and talks like spot zoning, we can all just pretend that it is not spot zoning. How the heck am I going to sleep with a processing plant operating 24/7? The applicants need to file a mitigated negative declaration. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mouthful I wish I never had to chew on. This MND is a checklist filled out by the applicant which asserts that the project will not cause a potentially significant impact on aesthetics, noise, traffic, water, scenic resources, land use, zoning and a dozen other factors. If even one of these factors could have a potentially significant impact that can not be mitigated, an environmental impact report is required. Surely any rational person would agree that replacing an apple orchard with a 33,000square-foot production facility, a 5,000-square-foot tasting room, a two-lane road and three parking lots would create at least one potentially significant impact that cannot be mitigated by such measures as planting shrubs and painting buildings brown. Right? Wrong. The Sonoma County Permit and Resource Management Department says that no EIR is required. Enough is enough! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to us to stop this encroachment of commercial development into our residential neighborhoods. Email, write and talk to your county supervisors. Attend the public hearing at the Board of Supervisors on March 2 at 2:10 pm. 575 Administration Drive, Santa Rosa. Do not allow them to turn the scenic corridor north of Sebastopol into an industrial park.

Feinsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Delta-pumping plan may cost the state its salmon By Alastair Bland

C

he future of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinook salmon and the ancillary fishing industry grew grimmer this month when Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced intentions to increase water exports from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to farmers in the San Joaquin Valley. The proposal to develop the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emergency Temporary Water Supply amendment,â&#x20AC;? as Feinstein called it in a Feb. 11 press release, would reverse a federal restoration plan enacted in 2009 that called for a reduction in Delta water exports during the spring months as a preservation measure supporting endangered winter-run Chinook salmon and Delta smelt. Feinstein announced her plan on the same day that the federal government reported 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall run of Chinook salmonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; 39,000 fishâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to be the lowest ever recorded,

a crash that environmentalists blame on mismanaged water exports via two large pumping facilities near Tracy. Now, critics say, should the federal restrictions on springtime pumping be lifted by Feinsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions, many or most of the tiny offspring from 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meager returnâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;already in the Delta as they move toward the seaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;could be lost, and with it, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salmon fishery. They charge that Feinstein has been influenced by wealthy corporate farmer Stewart Resnick, who owns Paramount Farms near Fresno. Resnick has contributed $29,000 in campaign money to Feinstein and is reported to be a personal friend. Late last year, he called on her to enact a formal review of the federal smelt and salmon restoration plans, which had been designed over several years by the Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service. Feinstein did so

promptly, and in January a public hearing took place in Davis where expert witnesses testified against reduced pumping before a panel from the National Academy of Sciences. To opponents of boosted water exports, it appears that the senatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new efforts to lift the pumping restrictions are a separate maneuver toward the same goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She certainly seems to be responding to those campaign contributions from Resnick and Westlands Water District, and now she seems 100 percent dedicated to her idea that farm jobs are more important than fishing jobs,â&#x20AC;? charges Dick Pool, program manager for Water4Fish, a conservation organization in Concord. Feinsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office deflected requests for a quote from the senator, instead sending canned press releases to the media. In a Feb. 11 release, Feinstein is quoted as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The San Joaquin Valley is experiencing an unprecedented economic crisis, a %-

situation so grave it was termed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;catastrophicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by a federal judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The unemployment rate is 40 percent in some Valley towns, and people are standing in bread lines. I believe we need a fair compromise that will respect the Endangered Species Act while recognizing the fact that people in Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breadbasket face complete economic ruin without help.â&#x20AC;? Tina Swanson, executive director of the Bay Institute in Novato, calls Feinsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal a â&#x20AC;&#x153;poor approachâ&#x20AC;? to solving a water crisis caused at its root by over-allocation of the Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited supply of water. A study conducted by Southwick Associates, a Florida-based company that analyzes economic matters related to fish and wildlife, found that Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing salmon fishing closure, which began in 2008, has cost 23,000 jobs. Roger Thomas, captain of the Salty Lady, a sport-fishing vessel in Sausalito, says these include vessel captains, deckhands, fish processors and members of the hospitality trade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The economy on the coast has gone down the toilet because of the salmon disaster,â&#x20AC;? Thomas says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The harbor at Bodega Bay is like a ghost town.â&#x20AC;? But the jobless rate is sky-high in the San Joaquin Valley, too. In her Feb. 11 statement, Feinstein said she hopes to alleviate unemployment in farming towns like Mendota, Huron and San Joaquin, each suffering from above-average jobless rates. Other sources, however, attribute much of the San Joaquin Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment to collapse of the building industry. An August 2009 report released by the University of the Pacific states that the subprime mortgage crisis cost the San Joaquin Valley 47,000 construction jobs, while water cuts and drought have led to 8,500 farm-related jobs lost. But for farmers like Joe Del Bosque, the crisis is real in the San Joaquin Valley. Del Bosque, a cantaloupe farmer in Los Banos, believes the unemployment is a direct result of hundreds of thousands of acres that have gone fallow due, he says, to unnecessary water cuts. Del Bosque, who holds lower priority water rights than some other farmers and urban water agencies, has had to fallow half of his own 1,200 acres after the federal government imposed restrictions last year. Although Del Bosque and others say that they are not receiving the water they need, net water exports from the Delta have increased substantially and steadily in the past two decades, according to figures from the Department of Water Resources. From 1990 to 2007, average annual water pumping rates in the Delta escalated from 4.9 million to 6.2 million acre feet. Records also show a strong negative correlation between these increased pumping rates and adult salmon abundance in the Sacramento River three years later, a lag time that reflects the average span that Chinook salmon spend in the ocean between the time they leave and reenter the rivers of their birth. In 1999, a relatively low volume of 5 million acre feet was drawn from the Delta via the Tracy pumps. Three years later, in 2002, the Sacramento saw its largest fall Chinook salmon run ever recordedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;almost 770,000 fish. But beginning in 2001, Delta water exports began to rise rapidly. By 2003, the pumps were drawing 6.2 million acre feet per year, an unprecedented volume that held steady through 2006. This

abrupt boost of 20 percent was followed almost exactly three years after it began by the current Chinook salmon freefall, which started roughly in 2004. Dr. Peter Moyle, a fisheries biologist at UC Davis, says the months of February through May are crucial to the survival of the Sacramento Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinook salmon runs. Moyle says that finger-sized juveniles, called smolts, born between October and December, swim through the Delta in the spring on their outmigration to the ocean and are potentially threatened by the pumps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Stockton pumps reverse the water flow direction in the Delta,â&#x20AC;? Moyle explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This confuses these little fish that are trying get to the ocean.â&#x20AC;? The smolts may swim directly into the pumps, meeting a certain death. Countless others are eaten first by predatory fish that occupy the Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sloughs and backwaters. Pool believes that full-throttle pumping in the spring of 2006 killed millions of fallrun smolts, directly causing the low return of 2009. The federal mandates restricting current Delta pumping, also called â&#x20AC;&#x153;biological opinions,â&#x20AC;? could minimize pump-related damage to the fall-run offspring, sources say. While Feinstein promised in a Feb. 18 release that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are exploring every possible option to achieve the water flexibility that would make this legislation unnecessary,â&#x20AC;? few critics are calmed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Feinstein undoes that biological opinion, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely see the extinction of one of our salmon runs,â&#x20AC;? Pool says, citing the stat that 85 percent of the juvenile salmon that exit the Sacramento for the ocean do so in the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had only 39,000 fish spawn in the fall, and now almost all their offspring are trying to get through the Delta.â&#x20AC;? High fish mortality rates this spring could mean another poor return of fall run of salmon in 2013, he adds. Del Bosque and hundreds of other farmers in the San Joaquin Valley, however, depend on a flow of Delta water all winter and spring to fill the San Luis Reservoir, their major summertime water source. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine trying to fill a swimming pool with a garden hose,â&#x20AC;? Del Bosque says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need that water flowing now and for the next six months.â&#x20AC;? Further endangering the Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fisheries, say Swanson, Moyle, Pool and others, is the prospect of building a canal that would draw water from the northern Delta and transport it to Southern California. The proposed conveyance system could be especially damaging if combined with the current exports via the Tracy pumps, Moyle says, and could extinguish the Sacramento Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinook salmon, striped bass and other fish. The money to build the canal is included in an $11 billion water bond package that will go to the ballot in November. Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta, a conservation group in Stockton, believes money, not science, is steering the direction of current policy making in Sacramento. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you put together [Stewart] Resnick and Westlands Water District and the money they give to campaigns, I believe it leads to real corruption in the process,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re either buying influence through lobbying or by making political campaign contributions.â&#x20AC;? Skipper Roger Thomas, who is currently negotiating with lawmakers to come to a compromise that would hopefully save salmon and minimize farmland impacts, would only say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is big-money politics.â&#x20AC;?

The American dream isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about wealthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about who we are

By Arthur Kopecky

A

ob Loughran, writing about Afghanistan in the Feb. 3 issue of the Bohemian (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go to Your God,â&#x20AC;? Open Mic), could be right that the United States is just another imperial power like Britain or Persia, sure to meet â&#x20AC;&#x153;defeatâ&#x20AC;? in the Afghan/Pakistan theater. But perhaps weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better hope American foreign policy represents something more than control of resources, like democracy, pluralism and even human rights, as corny as that sounds. And perhaps there really is a face-off with radical Islam and â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;? need to prevail. There is the argument that the United States represents something important in human history and that this current conf lict is more akin to WW II than the Vietnam War. Certainly the very bright and eager members of the U.S. military believe so, as does much of the country. Did America conquer Japan or Germany? No. We conquered their extraordinarily powerful culture of militarism. We helped to establish democracy quickly and had no problem befriending the people. We now have no closer allies. The defeat of fascism is still a seminal event in modern history not to be forgotten. Those were giant battles in the 1940s involving casualties running into the millions. The prosperity and freedom of much of the world in 2010 is still directly the outcome of that war. In a lot of ways we are closer to peace than any other time in human history. Our understanding of the oneness of the human race is almost commonplace now. We are not at odds with Japan or Germany. Europe is at peace; it even joined in a union. The Soviet Union miraculously changed internally, let East Europe free up, and then Russia adopted â&#x20AC;&#x153;ourâ&#x20AC;? economic system. Our militaries cooperate, and thousands of people travel across our borders. The Korean and Vietnam wars were basically surrogate wars with the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republic of China, but now the Chinese are raging capitalists and our economies are astonishingly joined at the hip. These three biggest playersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Russia, the United States and Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;could reduce their military budgets if they really put their minds to it. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left? The battle with holier-than-thou Islamic jihadists. Their destructive desire is a legitimate concern, and America actually is not about to retreat inside its borders in response. We

are extremely engaged worldwide, and many aid workers and people with middle-class aspirations hope we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abandon them to this ruthlessly violent sect. So, peace-loving friends, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s find something else to get excited aboutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like building communities. I myself like to concentrate on building a sharing, cooperative culture through the intentional-communities movement. The American people are sorely divided. Perhaps a greater appreciation of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the world from the left, one that concentrated on positive building instead of constant criticism, would go a long way to healing our national rift and helping America play another outstandingly positive chapter in world history. Nationally, we now face overdevelopment, and the rest of the world will too. I believe that sharing, caring and generosity are the catch-phrases of the future, and this is where more energy is needed. Stop fretting about Afghanistan. Use the most freedom and prosperity humanity has ever had to create a shining example of a more cooperative society. Here we have the perfect opportunity. From rock stars to athletes to millions of successful working folks, more wealth is at our disposal than ever in history. Whose fault is it our society is dominantly about selfishness and accumulation? How hard is that to change? You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get jailed for it. With massive unemployment and a new concern for the environment, the conditions are ripe for creating land-based communities of people learning to live and survive in cooperation. This would be a shining light; this would be a contribution to the world culture. I have such a sense of how powerful this people power movement could be. The Vietnam War is over. This is a new day. The new paradigm, the transformation, is not about a thousand protests but about creating a more joyous cooperative culture. What was it that St. John said? You might say that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the dreamer, but you know, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the only one.

In a lot of ways we are closer to peace than any time in human history.

Time banking and the pleasure of others By Juliane Poirier

have truth-tested these claims: the payoffs of belonging to a real community include (1) saving more money, (2) having more fun, (3) feeling needed and appreciated, (4) pushing against the mandates of a corporate state, (5) receiving kindnesses, (6) honoring the human spirit, (7) reducing stress, (8) getting free help with yard work and (9) learning surprising, positive things about oneself and others. This week, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m inviting readers to test these claims for yourselves by participating in a time bank. Have one nearby? Last year in these pages, I reported having teamed up with author Mick Winter and two others launching the Napa Time Bank. Time-banking is the brainchild of humanrights attorney Edgar Cahn, author of No More Throw Away People. It offers a means for people to get things done for one another without spending money, and in doing so, create a functional community. I had the honor of meeting Cahn in person last year, hearing him speak on several occasions and being challenged by him personally to take on a task I had no idea how to pursue: community organizing. Trying to wiggle out of it, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Edgar, I have no idea how to do this.â&#x20AC;? He replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Juliane, do you think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to let you get away with being passive about this?â&#x20AC;? Damn. How did he know just which button to push? I still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite know what I am doing, but almost a year later I am voluntarily co-coordinating a 40member time banking community that trades time instead of money to get work and play accomplished together. I knew it was the right thing to do, the socially conscious thing to do, but I had no idea when I began that it would turn out to be so much fun. I had no idea I would meet so many interesting people from so many different neighborhoods in my town. Members of our time bank range from nine to 80 years in age. And they all post on a website the kinds of things they like to do,

along with the kinds of things they would like done for them. (Members who do not use computers are assisted with this by members who do.) I gave an art lesson, and my son got his first kayak lesson through the Time Bank. A group of us helped pick olives one day. An elderly member got help with her computer and had a much-needed safety bar installed in her shower. I got my garden boxes built and my leaves raked. When I was stuck with an administrative problem, I got an hour of free consultation from a professional who happens to be a member of our time bank. Once in a while people get lonely; they ask for and receive an hour of companionship through the time bank. These are all the kinds of things people used to do for one another once upon a time before a temporary prosperity made it easy to purchase the time of others and we all started isolating in front of televisions and computer screens. As strange as this may seem to a culture that often avoids contact with the neighbors, all solutions to the problems standing between us and a sustainable world require the rebuilding of in-person community. No online community can take the place of a real face-to-face community. Only as part of an in-person community can we reclaim our social selves fully, recognize the innate and healthy interdependence that makes us human and re-learn how to relate comfortably with kindness, manners and humor in group efforts that benefit everyone. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the challenge? Join or start a time bank and see what happens. There are people all over the country doing the same, and in dozens of countries around the world. Time-banking has been around for about two decades, so there are people everywhere willing to share what they know about it. Rebuilding community is the mandate of our times. As Cahn would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you really think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to let you be passive about this?â&#x20AC;?

I knew it was the right thing to do, the socially conscious thing to do, but I had no idea when I began that it would turn out to be so much fun.

1>E8=4 ?4AB?8A0C8>= The USDA weighs whether certified organic animals can be confined or always pastured.

1XV3PXahB\PRZS^f] Small ag and Slow Food have a strange new frenemy, the USDA By Ari LeVaux

B

mall-ag activists and organic watchdog groups found themselves in terra incognita recently: cheering the USDA. On Feb. 12, the agency published Access to Pasture, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;final rule and request for commentsâ&#x20AC;? regarding organic standards for livestock which sees it tightening the definitions of organic meat and dairy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been called the most sweeping rewrite of the federal organic standards since their inception in 2002. The rule closes several loopholes that megadairies have used to exploit the organic market with milk from farms that hardly resemble the farms that inspired the now $24.6 billion organic industry. Access to Pasture mandates that meat and dairy cattle branded organic must graze for a minimum of 120 days on pasture. At least 30 percent of the animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; total annual caloric intake must come from grazing. While definitive with regard to dairy, the rule

leaves one significant question open with regard to meat production: whether beef cows should be exempt from the above grazing requirements during a four-month fattening, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;finish feeding,â&#x20AC;? period, after which they are slaughtered. A 60day comment period closes April 19. The new rule is a major blow to certain megadairies that for years took advantage of a previous rule that only required organic cows have â&#x20AC;&#x153;access to pasture.â&#x20AC;? The real-life manifestation of this famously ambiguous phrase was often a warehouse door opening to a muddy side yard. Clarifying â&#x20AC;&#x153;access to pastureâ&#x20AC;? has been under discussion between the National Organic Program and USDA since 1994, and a rule similar to the new rule was first proposed in 2005. It languished in Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s USDA for a variety of reasons, some of which are currently under investigation. When the draft was opened for public comments, 80,327 were lodged, of which all but 28 respondents favored clarifying the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;access to pasture.â&#x20AC;? Access to Pasture also tightens up several

other cracks in the federal definition of organic. It expands and strengthens the language prohibiting antibiotics in organic feed, requires that any edible bedding (like straw and corn cobs) be certified organic, and mandates that pasture be managed as a cropâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is, to produce abundant forage. Many small-ag types were skeptical of President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointment of former Iowa governor Tom Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture. Vilsackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cozy relationship with corporate agribusiness earned him â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor of the Yearâ&#x20AC;? kudos from the Biotechnology Industry Organization. But one of Secretary Vilsackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first moves was to rip up the plaza in front of the USDA building in Washington and install a certified organic garden. He then recommended that all USDA facilities around the country do the same. Then Vilsack appointed Kathleen Merrigan as deputy administrator, the USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 spot. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credited with writing the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990, in which Congress gave &) THE BOHEMIAN

the USDA authority to oversee the organic industry. While organic cheerleaders appear to have much to celebrate, some unfinished business will soon tell us more about which direction the USDA is really headed, and how much the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands are guiding it. Public comment just ended on the USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s December 2009 determination that Monsantoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GE alfalfa seed meets USDA standards. The determination came despite the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acknowledgement that the GE alfalfa is likely to cross-contaminate with non-GE alfalfa.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is no place in organic agriculture for the confinement feeding of animals.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And finally, the burning item of business that Access to Pasture leaves unresolved for another 60 days: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are requesting comments on the exceptions for finish feeding of ruminant slaughter stock.â&#x20AC;? As it stands, the USDA exempts beef cattle from the requirement that 30 percent of nutrition come from forage for a period of 120 days prior to slaughter. In practice, this exemption allows organic beef cattle to be confined and fed grain for four months prior to slaughter, a practice known as feedlot finishing. Access to Pasture notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sentiment among most of the commenters is that there is no place in organic agriculture for the confinement feeding of animals, nor should there be any exception for ruminant slaughter stock.â&#x20AC;? If that sentiment holds, the organic feedlot exception should end. But if the exception is upheld and â&#x20AC;&#x153;organicâ&#x20AC;? beef is allowed to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;finishedâ&#x20AC;? in confinement, that would not only cast doubt on what appears to be a newly inclusive and democratic USDA, it would arguably violate several key aspects of organic livestock production. Confined feeding goes against the organic tenet that animals be allowed to express their true nature, and feeding grain to animals not only produces a different kind of meat thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much less healthy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also much more energy-intensive and environmentally destructive. Perhaps the real discussion shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even be about whether organic beef cows can be confined and grain fed for the last 120 days of their lives. The discussion should be about whether organic cattle should be fed any grain at all.

?86B8= 5;867C t was late 2008, and Sasha Wizanky, founding editor of Meatpaper magazine, was having coffee with noted San Francisco butcher Ryan Farr. Meatpaper was planning an upcoming magazine party, and Farr casually tossed out an idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, how about I do a butchery demonstration at your next party?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Wizanky recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Huh! I wonder who wants to juxtapose drinking a cocktail and watching a pig getting butchered?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So I asked around, and everybody said yes, absolutely.â&#x20AC;?

I

The ensuing soiree kicked off a Bay Area craze. Throughout the course of last year, while no one except food bloggers and meat enthusiasts were looking, public butchery and home slaughter parties swiftly became the Next Big Thing, the high arc in the continuing cycle of the new vintage-lifestyle aesthetic. But Meatpaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party had a predecessor here in the North Bay: Cochon 555, a traveling contest and road show devoted to pig butchery and pork preparation which ďŹ rst came to Silverado Resort in October 2008. The 2010 meat world climate is far more raging and media-addled when Cochon 555 returns this weekend to Silverado, with Farr on hand for a nose-to-tail butchery demonstration. But the real competition is between the chefs who must prepare an entire heritage pig, and it will be ďŹ erce indeed: Devin Knell from French Laundry, John Stewart and Duskie Estes of Zazu, Chris Kostow from Meadowood, Dennis Lee of Namu and Peter Pahk from Silverado itself go knife-to-knife to prove whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect pork-piercing preparer of portions potent and praiseworthy. Jeremy Fox from Michelin-starred vegetarian restaurant Ubuntu appears as special ironic guest, and ďŹ ve familyowned wineries pour the vino. Seventeen judges ranging from Fatted Calfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taylor Boetticher to the Culinary Institute of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lars Kronmark weigh in on the champion, but their opinion is only good for 49 percent of the voteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the majority of the say comes from the people. Have your pork and eat it too when Cochon 555 kicks off its 2010 nationwide tour in the Napa Valley on Sunday, Feb. 28, at Silverado Resort, 1600 Atlas Peak Road, Napa. 4:30pm to 8pm. $110; discount password Googleable.

740;8=6 0A>CC4= 5>>3 BHBC4< f I had to choose, I would spend my days eating at hole-in-the-wall Mexican, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Pakistani and Indian eateries instead of at fancy white-table restaurants with posh interiors and expensive wine lists. As happy as I am sidling up to a taco truck, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m faced with a dilemma. My favorite kinds of restaurants are typically the ones most likely to serve factory-farmed meat and industrially produced fruit and vegetables. Taquerias and noodle shops are not the places to ďŹ nd organic produce and sustainably raised meat. Why is that?

I

The easy answer is that it is too costly for these often barebones, mom-and-pop restaurants. Organic and sustainably produced food generally costs more than food loaded off a Sysco truck or grown on a big corporate farm somewhere in the Central Valley. A low-rent restaurant run by Vietnamese immigrants isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to have a budget big enough to buy grass-fed beef or organic produce from a local farm. Similarly, the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers are probably not willing to pay a premium for these kinds of foods. But the bigger reason isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that good food is too costly, but rather that we have a food and economic system that encourages the externalization of costs onto the environment, society at large and future generations. Companies that do business this way are rewarded with increased sales because they can sell their stuff for â&#x20AC;&#x153;cheap.â&#x20AC;? Of course, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing cheap about cheap food. Cheap at Costco generally means more itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more expensive in terms of environmental or social impact (groundwater contamination, tainted beef, loss of genetic diversity in plants, healthcare costs to treat obesity and type 2 diabetes and oil dependence). But those cost are borne by society as a whole rather than by the consumer at the cash register. Everybody loves a bargain, right? Why pay more? There are organizations that help restaurants implement more environmentally sound practices, but food isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t their main focus. Thimmakka is a nonproďŹ t group in Oakland that works with the Association of Bay Area Governments to help restaurants lessen their output of waste, energy, water and pollutants. But sourcing better food isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the program. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gap that needs ďŹ lling. What will it take to bring more ethnic restaurant into the fold and help them to embrace environmentally sound menus? In a word: money. Until the day when capitalism is swapped out for a more communitarian economic order, any plan has got to make economic sense in order for a restaurateur to make the changes required for a healthier world. Appeals to morality donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put food on the table or money in the bank. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just so that food-obsessed, guilty liberals like me can get organic arugula in their burritos. It could be a small step toward kicking over a rotten food system that rewards bad behavior at the expense of the common good. We all have to eat, and voting with our food dollars can have a powerful impact. The more restaurants and customers there are willing to break out of the industrial food complex and create a new, more sustainable system the better. When it comes to what we eat, we either pay now or pay later. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather pay upfront and enjoy my food now. Stett Holbrook

<4A2DAH 64HB4AE8;;4 o donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you all call it Geezerville around here?â&#x20AC;? a wisenheimer workmate once quipped on a jaunt to this hamlet. Once little more than a T in the road, Geyserville sure seems like the kind of town where sleeping dogs melt into the road, roosters strut across it without fear, and the afternoon sun crawls at a tortoiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace across the sky. Look, then, on the west side of the street, and ďŹ nd Diavolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wood-ďŹ red pizzeria and salumeria, a minimum of ďŹ ve winetasting rooms and the clincher, a dog grooming parlor. Peer into the picture glass window of newcomer Mercury Geyservilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrel room and see two turntables and two big amps. Seems like some of these geezers are ready to party.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;S

Inside, jars of jam, pickled peppers and assorted homemade comestibles share a wall of cubbyholes with bottles of wine, lending a country-kitchen look to the concrete-ďŹ&#x201A;oored, minimalist space. Director of winemaking and lead tasting dude Brad Beard invites us to choose a platter for the LP record player off to one side. Johnny Cash, the Specials, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll it be? While mercury dimes ďŹ ll one cubbyhole jar, Mercury the planet stars on the labels, and Mercury the comic book hero adorns the T-shirts, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say which one of these endless variations on a theme is the original. (Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be quicksilver, which originally brought immigrant miners to Alexander Valley. Later, they settled down, grew grapes, and here we are.)

In an effort to mend the trellis that connects reluctant or never-been locals with the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular industry, Mercury charges no fee, and extends a 20 percent discount to Sonoma County residents. In keeping with the quirky theme, Mercuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most novel bottling is a 500 ml â&#x20AC;&#x153;jug wineâ&#x20AC;? ($8), a case of 12 packed in a handmade wooden crate. Featuring a little jug handle and a laboratory bottle cap, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an adorable three-glass serving of chocolate, raspberry and vanilla, with dried thyme on the lean mid-palate. From the Russian River Valley, Mercury grabs a few tons of the most mercurial grape. The 2008 Sonoma Carneros Pinot Noir ($25) had plum skin and green cherry notes, with a light and tasty, sweet and round ďŹ nish. Two barrels of 2008 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($25) were feared forever tainted by the Mendocino ďŹ res of that year, but from whatever toasted oaks, the smoke blends right in with cooling, damp earth, plum juice and sage, bringing it home with moderate terry-cloth tannin. Dudes got downright esoteric when naming their Bordeaux-style wines, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sister,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fatherâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Messenger.â&#x20AC;? That would be Cabernet Sauvignon, viticultural son to Cabernet Franc as Mercury is to Jupiter, and related to Merlot; this embodiment (2007 â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sister,â&#x20AC;? $35) is brimming with big brambly fruit, and all the voluptuousness of some Venus. Put on your winged shoes and letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party. Mercury Geyserville, 20120 Geyserville Ave., Geyserville. Open Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Monday, 11am to 6pm. No tasting fee. 707.857.9870.

1Tbc^UcWTF^abc The Museum of Bad Art celebrates creative failures By Jason Zasky

his is so bad, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good,â&#x20AC;? remarked Jerry Reilly when friend Scott Wilson presented him with Lucy in the Field with Flowers, the oil painting that first inspired the creation of the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) in 1993. Wilson, an art and antiques dealer, had rescued Lucy from a pile of trash on the street, hoping to salvage and sell its frame before redepositing the canvas in the garbage. But Reilly insisted on keeping the painting, and the duo soon found themselves collecting and soliciting donations of â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad art,â&#x20AC;? which they installed in Reillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement along with the requisite track lighting. His subsequent house-warming-party-

cum-art-show was a huge hit, attracting more than 200 guests, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the next morning we decided to start a museum of bad art,â&#x20AC;? recalls his sister, Louise Reilly Sacco, a recently retired marketing consultant who now serves as MOBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;permanent interim acting executive director.â&#x20AC;? While MOBA has long since outgrown Reillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement and now occupies a pair of galleries, both within 1920s-era movie theaters (one in Dedham, Massachusetts, the other in nearby Somerville), it has stayed true to its mission of â&#x20AC;&#x153;celebrating artistic effort, however misguided.â&#x20AC;? Under the direction of current curator-in-chief and Boston resident Michael Frank, its collection now numbers

more than 600 pieces (approximately 100 of which are displayed at any one time), almost all contributed by donors relieved to find someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;willing to take the works off their hands. Yet like any fine art museum, MOBA is very particular about what it will appropriate for its permanent collection, accepting little more than 10 percent of what is offered. Factory art, tourist art, any work painted on velvet or thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paintby-numbers, any of the well-known kitschy motifs (dogs playing cards, et al.), anything by a child and anything remotely close to being pornographic is rejected out of hand. Beyond that, the art â&#x20AC;&#x153;has to be original and sincere, and it has to be bad in a spectacular, interesting or noteworthy way,â&#x20AC;? Sacco '' THE BOHEMIAN

explains. In other words, if you were walking past a gallery and saw the piece in the window, would you say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoa, look at thatâ&#x20AC;?? She admits that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a certain amount of subjectivity involved, as in, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bad art is whatever our curator says it is,â&#x20AC;? before jesting that the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;worldwide searchâ&#x20AC;? for a curator just happened to yield someone local, who just happens to own a tuxedo.

02.24.10-03.02.10

Owing to MOBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively strict standards, Frank encourages potential donors to email or send a slide or photo before mailing a work or leaving it outside one of the galleries, as the latter tends to irritate the Dedham and Somerville movie theater managers who provide MOBA with rent-free gallery space and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate it when artwork of dubious quality suddenly appears on their respective doorsteps. As for the works that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criteria, these are disposed of at biennial charity auctions, each piece delivered to the auction winner with a certificate that reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rejected by the Museum of Bad Art.â&#x20AC;? Categorical disqualifications aside, the most common reason a work is rejected is because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just plain boring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may be bad, but in a boring way. And many of the submissions just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that bad. Artists who submit their own workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and it happens a lotâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tend to be very hard on themselves. We have to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just too good for usâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? claims Sacco. But in effect, self-submissions are a no-lose proposition for the artist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we accept their work, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a piece in a museum. And if we reject it, they can tell

THE BOHEMIAN



themselves, and others, that they were too good for MOBA,â&#x20AC;? she elaborates. While People magazine once quipped that the artists of MOBA â&#x20AC;&#x153;arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in it for the Monet,â&#x20AC;? several professional artists have paintings on display, including Mari Newman, most famous for decorating her Minneapolis home and yard with an ever-changing display of sculpture that is sometimes characterized as â&#x20AC;&#x153;an eyesore.â&#x20AC;? And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roger Hanson, of Ocean Shores, Wash., who â&#x20AC;&#x153;paint[s] in the genres of impressionism, abstract expressionism and a tangent of abstract expressionism that [he] call[s] color expressionism,â&#x20AC;? according to curatorial copy. Hanson has a pair of paintings at MOBA, Coulda Been Marilyn Today and Half Polynesian, Half Norwegian. Even more surprising is that on at least one occasion, MOBA has launched an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career. Consider the case of Bonnie Daly, whose brother-in-law donated Pablo Presley (pictured on a T-shirt), which led to an on-camera interview with CNN, which led to several commissions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few years later, she quit her day job and started supporting herself as an artist,â&#x20AC;? Sacco says. Despite the occasional success story, MOBA faces many of the same problems as any other art museum. The main issue is generating enough revenue to keep the institution open, and since admission is free, the organization relies on merchandise sales (T-shirts and postcards) and also accepts financial contributions via its website. Paintings from the collection have also been featured in a pair of books, including last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Museum of Bad Art: Masterworks (Ten Speed Press), by Frank and Sacco. And, believe it or not, from time to time MOBA has even had problems with theft. Most notably, in the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earliest days, a man walked off with Eileen, and ultimately demanded a ransom of a $1,000, which far exceeded the $37 or so that the museum had offered in reward money. Nevertheless, MOBA did report the crime to the Boston police, which prompted a visit by officers from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art theft division, who were trying to link Eileen to the infamous thefts from the Gardner Museum, as both crimes were listed in their records as â&#x20AC;&#x153;art theft of pieces of unknown value.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We explained that our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unknown valueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was on the other end of the spectrum. They were very nice and decided not to put a lot of effort into our case,â&#x20AC;? says Sacco, stating the obvious. Anyway, the story had a happy ending, as MOBA got the painting back approximately a decade after it was stolen. As it turns out, the thief â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife got fed up with having Eileen under the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By this time, they had kids, and she was concerned about the example it was setting for the children, so she asked her husband to return it,â&#x20AC;? Sacco remembers. A transaction was arranged through an intermediary after MOBA agreed not to press charges.

ÂźC7414CC4AC>B44H>D<H340A½ MOBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curatorial text reads: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Attempting to combat the pervasive sense of isolation rampant in modern society, the artist presents a bold post-cubist image that compels the viewer to make direct eye contact.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Considering that the galleries are set in the unused portions of local movie theaters, MOBA security leaves something to be desired. As is the case with most museums, budgetary considerations preclude implementing many recommended security measures. In Dedham and Somerville, security is limited to a few fake security cameras (clearly marked as such), which, if nothing else, seem to deter children from engaging in shenanigans. However, the presence of fake cameras didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deter an intruder from absconding with Rebecca Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Self Portrait as a Drainpipe and leaving behind a note taped to the wall with the message â&#x20AC;&#x153;For $10 you can have your painting back.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thief left no contact information, so there was nothing we could do,â&#x20AC;? says Sacco matter-of-factly. But as with Eileen, the case resolved itself in satisfactory fashion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few weeks later it was back on the wall with $10 taped to it,â&#x20AC;? she says. Yet in spite of the jokes, most artists are more than happy to have works on display at MOBA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One you get past the name of the museum, you realize that we are giving artists an audience and celebrating their work,â&#x20AC;? Sacco explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main lesson for artists is that they should be adventurous, because even if they fail, they may still end up with something that people will respond to and gain recognition for their efforts.â&#x20AC;?

3>=½C3D<? Protesters from a New Orleans suburb are the subject of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Village Called Versaillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

6[^QP[5X[\PVT The Sebastopol Documentary Film Fest brings the whole world home By Michael Shapiro

0

mid the devastation that was New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, one community managed to right itself: a Vietnamese neighborhood in New Orleans East. Six months after Katrina, when much of New Orleans remained a ghost town, Versailles was almost fully occupied. But just when Versaillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inhabitants were getting back on their feet and laying out a plan to transform their community by integrating small farms and a charter school, this enclave literally got dumped on. S. Leo Chiangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film, A Village Called Versailles, screening March 6 at the Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival, traces Versaillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; evolution from a sleepy, under-the-radar hamlet to a feisty, politically charged community. What catalyzed this transformation? The mayor of New Orleans and his emergency decree to put a garbage dump on the edge of town. The Vietnamese leaders of Versailles asked the waste company to install a liner to prevent chemicals from leaching into their water and fields. They refused. So when the dumping began, Versaillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; people, led by a charismatic priest and youthful protesters,

took to the streets to block the garbage trucks. Chiang skillfully shows how revolutionary this was for a community whose elders had been scarred by war and dislocation, a people who prior to this desecration had just wanted to avoid confrontation and be left alone. An immigrant from Taiwan who now lives in San Francisco, Chiang, 39, sought to capture the evolution of the immigrant experience in the United States. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first you feel like a guest,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You must be polite; you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask too much.â&#x20AC;? But after a disaster like Katrina, when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the verge of being pushed aside, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you need to claim your place.â&#x20AC;? Having their homes threatened, first by a natural calamity and then by Mayor Ray Naginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to put a toxic dump on the edge of town, â&#x20AC;&#x153;gave the community purpose beyond doing well financially,â&#x20AC;? Chiang says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was politically empowering.â&#x20AC;? A Village Called Versailles screens with Sebastopol resident Robert Hillmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1982 film Fire on the Water. Both directors will appear at their screenings during the Sebastopol festival, running March 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7 and now in its third year. Hillmann, a loquacious former New Yorker whose parents emigrated from Europe in the early 20th century, traveled to the Gulf Coast of Texas

in the early 1980s. He captured a moment when Southern fishermen whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spent generations trawling for shrimp clashed with Vietnamese immigrants seeking to make a living in the waters off east Texas. Hillmann scouted the Gulf Coast until he found the characters to tell the story and used cinĂŠma vĂŠritĂŠ techniques to keep the film fast-paced. His goal was to get beyond the â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot-button issuesâ&#x20AC;? of that time and make a â&#x20AC;&#x153;timelessâ&#x20AC;? film about what humans do when confronted with the fear of â&#x20AC;&#x153;there not being enough to go around anymore.â&#x20AC;? Most of the white fisherman harass or condemn the newcomers, but one man, Jim Craig, provides them with docks where they can harbor their boats. Craigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description of the impending explosion between the white and Vietnamese fishermen gives the film its title: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a fire burning to the water,â&#x20AC;? Craig says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to stop it.â&#x20AC;? Hillmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal was to make a film without judgment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no good guys and no bad guys,â&#x20AC;? he says, though some characters come off better than others. We meet a young Vietnamese fisherman whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to earn enough money to send his younger siblings to college; today, Hillmann says, one is a professor at Rhode Island School of Design. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James Stansfield, a boat mechanic ') and the leader of the local chapter of the THE BOHEMIAN

Ku Klux Klan. In one scene, Stansfield exhorts his minions to burn crosses, though he can be surrealistically pragmatic: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The price of diesel went up hereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slowed down the cross-burning a bit. You only use â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re serious,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You gotta make all of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em count.â&#x20AC;? The next scene shows Stansfield repairing the motor of a fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a Vietnamese fisherman. His pride in his work is so great, Hillmann says, that he always does his best work, even on an engine he views as belonging to the enemy. One of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most poignant exchanges is between Stansfield and a fisherman who was a colonel in Vietnam and tries to convince Stansfield that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re similar. You can almost see Stansfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dogmatic facade begin to crack. And then we learn an astonishing secret about Stansfield, proof that the filmmaker has hung around long enough to gain his trust. The local leader of the KKK faces the camera and says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not white, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually Native American. Hillmann, who scored an Oscar nomination in 1991 for producing the documentary Waldo Salt: A Screenwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Journey, is on the Motion Picture Academy committee that nominates contenders for best documentary. A few years ago, the Academy considered removing these awards from the telecast, but Hillmann and others fought for recognition of documentaries to stay on TV. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to find good work and give it the attention it deserves,â&#x20AC;? he says.

A couple of years later, Michael Moore was using his award to stump for social justice before an audience of almost 1 billion people. Hillmann says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleased to see a documentary film festival come to his little West County burg. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially valuable today because there are so many major media outlets â&#x20AC;&#x153;that co-opt everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as much time for quality stuff from the independent world.â&#x20AC;? And he likes that this festival is for North Bay residents, unlike Sundance and others that cater to the out-of-town crowd. Jason Perdue, program director of the film festival, knows his audience is local, but he seeks a diverse and broad range of films that may not share the progressive political perspective of most Sonoma County filmgoers. The festival has expanded its roster of events, with a workshop of documentary filmmaking and parties at the Hopmonk and Sebastopol Center for the Arts. A popular event from last year, pre-film dinners at Viva Culinary Institute, is making a return engagement. And unlike other festivals, where you have to buy an expensive pass, you can attend the Sebastopol festival Ă  la carte. Most films are $8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather sell out than make an extra dollar,â&#x20AC;? Perdue says.

Parties Meet filmmakers and local artists at opening- and closing-night parties at Sebastopol Center for the Arts. The opening-night program, including the films and party, costs $20; closing night is $4 for the party. On Saturday night, the band Pellejo Seco plays in the Hopmonkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Abbey, $7. Filmmakers at Screenings Many directors will be present for Q&As at their films. The one whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably traveling the farthest to attend is Anna Rodgers, the Irish filmmaker of Today Is Better than Two Tomorrows. Set in Laos, the film traces the paths of two boys; one goes to school, the other becomes a monk. Oakville filmmaker Lucy Massie Phenix presents Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Know, Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll See, a 2008 film about the life of master ceramicist Karen Karnes. Phenix will also appear at the showing of Word Is Out, a 1978 film in which gays and lesbians share their hopes and dreams. Workshop â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of Shooting Docsâ&#x20AC;? led by filmmaker Emiko Omori, who will show excerpts of her work and discuss techniques for creating films on Saturday at 2pm. Latino Program Cuban films are featured followed by a lunch and discussion with the filmmakers of Salud! on Saturday at 11:30am. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Miss Films Still Bill, a doc about Grammy-winning soul singer Bill Withers, explores the reclusive artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to give up fame and fortune and seek a quiet life with his family. Withers wrote and sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t No Sunshineâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lean on Me.â&#x20AC;? My Vietnam, Your Iraq, a film from a director who served 20 months in the Gulf of Tonkin, observes nine Vietnam vets as they watch their children deploy to Iraq. The film is paired with Republican Dad, made by an Obama supporter who films his conservative fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run for Congress. The film starts with politics but ends up being about the relationship between father and son. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;M.S.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dirty Blondeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; celebrates Mae West By David Templeton

<

Âş

ae West was all woman,â&#x20AC;? says actress Liz Jahren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to be strong, to be sexy, to speak her mind and tell it like it isâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or was. She was a very strong voice at a time when women, and a lot of men, really needed to see that in a woman.â&#x20AC;? Mae West, who died 30 years ago this year, returns to life courtesy of Jahren (Always Patsy Cline, On the Verge, Well) and the Sixth Street Playhouse, where Claudia Shearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dirty Blonde opens this weekend. The three-actor play, originally starring its author, was nominated for a Tony award for best play, and also earned acting nominations for all of its performers, one of the very few times in Broadway history that a showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire cast was nominated. In this production, directed by Tara Blau, Jahren is joined by Jeff CotĂŠ and Paul Huberty. Uniquely structured, the play begins with two hardcore Mae West fans, Jo and Charlie ( Jahren and CotĂŠ), meeting at Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grave and forming a bond over their mutual appreciation for the legendary actress, playwright and sex symbol. Soon,

their budding friendship is interwoven with scenes from Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, with Jahren shimmying in and out of the role of West, and CotĂŠ becoming Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifelong manager-and-more James Timony, among other characters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to describe, the way this show is put together,â&#x20AC;? Jahren laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about these two characters, these people who loved Mae West, and it follows their relationship as they talk about herâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about Mae West and what happened to her as she moved from Broadway to Hollywood. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tribute to her, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also really honest.â&#x20AC;? For Jahren, the opportunity to portray a character as well known as Westâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that face, that voiceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has not just been challenging as an actress, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made her think about Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s irresistible power as a sex symbol and what that meant for the woman of her day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was fearless,â&#x20AC;? Jahren says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was so open-minded, in terms of the people she was friends with and the things she saw as wrong, as prejudiced. She stood up for what she believed in, in ways that seem incredible in light of the censorship and intolerance that were so common when she was first starting out.â&#x20AC;? Jahren has also been thinking a lot about Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing ability to not just be sexyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;usually through always acting as if she knew she was sexy, even in her 70sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but to make her co-stars seem sexier too, no matter who they were or what they looked like. After she appeared in the 1940 classic My Little Chickadee, it can perhaps be said that Mae West was the only woman in Hollywood who could even make W. C. Fields seem sexy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She just loved men, and it was contagious,â&#x20AC;? Jahren says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and sometimes that meant that, the more man there was, the more sexy she seemed to think he was. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, would you look at youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a man!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? As West, Jahren gets to deliver some of the most famous lines ever utteredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you come up some time and see me?â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and learning to speak them in Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instantly identifiable voice has been more of a test than she expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trick is, I play West at all of these different ages,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She starts out as this young actress, and by the end, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing her in her 70s, when she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much of a voice left. She was all breath and no power. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been watching a lot of Mae West, learning how to do that voice at different times in her life.â&#x20AC;? One would assume that after all of her preparation, Jahren has come to identify with and more deeply appreciate the power of Mae West. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How can I not?â&#x20AC;? she laughs again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mae West was, and still is, a truly original American character. She inspires people to this day. I think that audiences, after they see this show, are going to get a pretty good sense of exactly why she had such an effect on so many people.â&#x20AC;?

THE BOHEMIAN



n many American schools, the history lessons go like this: Old white guys show up, fight against and later make up with Native Americans before creating a yummy Thanksgiving dinner together. Then they build an empire with the help of African slaves. Finally, some laws are passed, everyone is equal and they all ride off into the sunset together. The end. What is missing from this story? Aside from the fact that we, as a nation, are still leaps and bounds from celebrating true racial equality and democracy, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing is the story of the American woman. Over 10 years ago, Sebastopol filmmaker Louise Vance discovered a flyer in her mail about the 150th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention. A native of New York, this educated feminist was shocked to discover that the story of this crucial moment in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffrage movement struck no chord of familiarity with her. Shortly thereafter, she found herself accompanying WOWER Power, a girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Area high school theater group (and one 10-year-old boy), to the event. They went to perform, she went to make the documentary film Seneca Falls. Seneca Falls is not a lifeless, black-andwhite collage of images featuring women from long-ago in lung-constricting Victorian dresses, but rather the tear-jerking, personal story of the frustration and empowerment that comes to the young women in the film when an omitted, collective history of our country is revealed to them. In 1848, Seneca Falls was the site of the first womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights convention. Some 150 years later, the WOWER Power group traveled there to learn about that time and to craft their own theatrical piece based on this fresh slice of history. In addition to introducing us to the young

women and their gradual transformation over the course of the road trip back east, the film also paints an appropriate and necessary image of such badass, radical women as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Sojourner Truth and the often dangerous risks they took for women to have the rights women enjoy today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to write women back into the fabric of American history,â&#x20AC;? Vance says of her film and the curriculum she is developing for classroom use around the nation. For her first independent film after directing programs for CNN and TBS, Vance was careful about leaving out the struggle for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reproductive rights, in order to appeal to women across religious and political lines. She was also conscious about drawing attention to the role that men played in securing womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights. KRCB TV Channel 22 is sponsoring the North Bay premiere of the film in advance of co-presenting it to PBS stations across the country and in conjunction with Marchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s History Month celebrations. KRCB CEO Nancy Dobbs will discuss the film after its screening with Vance and members of the WOWER Power team. With an original score composed by Mark Orton of Tin Hat Trio fame, appearances from radical women like U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee and the extraordinary insights of a 10-year-old boy about the future of Girl Power, Seneca Falls may soon be mandatory viewing in classrooms across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Seneca Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; screens as a kick-off to National Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s History Month on Saturday, Feb. 27, at Analy High School. 6950 Analy Ave., Sebastopol. $10; benefits the Analy Choir, which has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall. 707.829.0433.

ÂĄViva los NiĂąos! In its former life as Shakeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza, the unassuming building near a freeway overpass fed pepperoni and cheese to parents and arcade-game-playing kids alike. For the last several years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been known as Los Caballos, a Latin nightclub hosting mariachi, salsa and reggaeton bands, but this Thursday the kids are back. Discovering new and uncommon places to play is a longtime tradition for the local underground community, and in a rare and needed move, the club is all-ages with a separate bar for those over 21 during the CD/cassette release show for Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s StarSkate. Named for another lost local kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wonderland, StarSkate play a furiously creative brand of instrumental rock, fronted by the labyrinthine mind of Guy Henry and fueled by a closely entwined rhythm section formerly known as the duo Batman vs. Predator. Fresh off a nationwide tour, they should be well oiled and smooth, like Swiss bearings. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a bicycle caravan leaving the 440 Club beforehand to get to the show, which also features the Iditarod, Summer Blondes, A Pack of Wolves and Stalinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Moustache on Thursday, Feb. 25, at Los Caballos. 3125 Cleveland Ave., Santa Rosa. 8pm. $5. 707.525.0161.

Bristling Biafra Soon after Barack Obama was elected, ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra composed a 7,592-word missive instructing the president-elect, point by point, on how to properly run the country. Never mind that Biafra didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vote for Obama; the rabble-rousing punk icon has never possessed any qualms about speaking his mind. An ugly legal battle 10 years ago all but eliminated the possibility of a proper Dead Kennedys reunion (the other three have been trotting out the classics with what Biafra calls a â&#x20AC;&#x153;scab singerâ&#x20AC;?), but Biafra returned surprisingly last year with his new band the Guantanamo School of Medicine, featuring members of Faith No More and Victims Family. Their album The Audacity of Hype harkens to the days when Biafra was running for mayor, getting lambasted by Tipper Gore and singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kill the Poorâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;in other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, intellectual, scathing, passionate, sarcastic and political. He appears with the band on Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 E. Washington St., Petaluma. 8pm. $15. 707.762.3565.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jazz was the first music,â&#x20AC;? Kelly Joe Phelps once told an interviewer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that I was aware of that was improvised. That alone was enough to make me do literally nothing else for nearly 10 years.â&#x20AC;? Certainly, Phelpsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recorded output hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached the soaring heights of exploration that his early idols Miles Davis and John Coltrane once so constantly strove for and oftentimes reached, because after his jazz immersion he hit a bump in the road: delta blues. Based in Portland, Ore., the finger-picking guitarist now journeys along a unique hybrid trail of folk music, where free improvisation points the way as much as strict technique. And others have noticed. Phelps has guested on albums by Townes Van Zandt, Greg Brown, Jay Farrar and Tim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, among others, and just released his eighth album, Western Bell, last year. He plays

Spring Fever Spring has edged its spritely nose around the corner, teasing all of us with its weekend weather and outdoor ambiance. I say we take it for all itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth. This Sunday, perhaps. How about driving the kids into Yountville? I knowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too fancy there.â&#x20AC;? But park at Ranch Market and pick up some cheap sandwiches. Ditch the car and walk down Washington, past the off ramp and onto California Drive. Stroll along the tree-lined promenade and ogle the golfers at the Vintners Golf Club course hooking their drives after not playing all winter. Find a bench, take in the fresh air and eat the sandwiches, and then keep walking up to the Veterans Homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful Lincoln Theater to get a great deal on the kids for the Moscow Circus, performing in the middle of

Pyramid Pose Things are getting kinda awesome for the Giacomini family. Decades-long owners of Tobyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feed Barn in Point Reyes Station, the younger Giacomini generation isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly following

in the pellet-and-hay business of their ancestry. Adam Giacomini, aka DJ Amen, spins at clubs and shows through the week and heats up the airwaves on 106.1-FM KMEL on weekends. And Nick Giacomini, aka MC Yogi, has pursued the strangest career path of all, mostly because it never existed until he created it: a rapping yoga instructor. From his Yoga Toes studio in Pt. Reyes to the world-famous Jivamukti Yoga School in New York, MC rhymes about Shiva and Hanuman over banghra-

That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the case when Yogi guests at this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Juke Joint in Sebastopol, thoughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;every Thursday night, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no parking on the dance f loor allowed.

ost musicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deaths are big before they are small. When Michael Jackson died last year, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think the entire earth had been hit by an 8.3 quake on the Richter scale before settling down. Now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a prerecorded hologram at the Grammys, a translucent reminder of fameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fade. But when hip-hop producer James Yancey, aka J. Dilla, died of a rare blood disease in 2004, the effect reversed. Hip-hop blogs mourned and Pitchfork gave Dilla a news item, but that was about it. Little could anyone have predicted the great ascension of the skinny little Detroit beat maker to hip-hop giant in a seemingly never-ending posthumous reassessment of his pioneering work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that people are all of a sudden realizing his past body of work,â&#x20AC;? says local producer Jason the Argonaut, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and all that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, and how much of a loss it is, really.â&#x20AC;? He and three other DJsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;BigJohnStudd, Capsize and J-Riggsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;host a tribute to the late producer this Saturday in Sebastopol, a microcosm of nationwide honors thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve transformed Dilla into the John Coltrane of the indie hip-hop scene. The Pharcydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Labcabincalifornia. Q-Tipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AmpliďŹ ed. Commonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Like Water for Chocolate. A Tribe Called Questâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beats, Rhymes and Life. These were all sternly divisive albums upon their release, and all Dilla productions. That the hip-hop world eventually came around to their aesthetic was a redemption Dilla got to see in his lifetime, as reigning trends in production favored a more complex, smoothed-out shift. First-time Dilla listeners are usually thrown off by his beatsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the snare drum, in particular, is generally a skosh off-beat, and the bass drum pattern rarely repeats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they are, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really deep kicks that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily on a 4/4 rhythm,â&#x20AC;? Jason says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They might be on a 4/3, a different time signature that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t standard in your normal boom-crack, boom-crack. And they were also, like, really dumpy. They really hit hard, but they were over smooth, jazzy beats.â&#x20AC;? Since many Dilla productions were recorded under umbrella groups or pseudonymsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Ummah, the Soulquariansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the extent of his catalogue is still trickling out, often for use by Mos Def, Q-Tip or Jay Electronica. And Dillaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unreleased material is a Wonka factory that beatheads dream about and current producers incessantly try to mimic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny,â&#x20AC;? Jason says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause are you carrying the J. Dilla torch, or are you just bitinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the shit? Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got their J. Dilla beat they make now. I battle with it. Just â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cause you make a beat that sounds like J. Dilla doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re carrying on his legacy.â&#x20AC;? Good Hip-Hop presents the Tribute to J. Dilla, with Dilla productions spun all night long, on Saturday, Feb. 27, at Jasper Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Farrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 6957 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol. 10pm. $5. 707.829.2062. Gabe Meline

THE BOHEMIAN



A0:4>DCC7490<B

The Hootenanny raises the (barn) roof n April 1963, an exciting new music television show aired on ABC. Hosted by Art Linkletterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Jack, Hootenanny featured the new folk sounds of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Limeliters, the Chad Mitchell Trio, the Brothers Four, the New Christy Minstrelsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and catapulted the folk music scene of Greenwich Village into a national craze. But by banning agit-leftie Pete Seeger for his allegedly communist beliefs and featuring acts largely booked by the ABC-affiliated Ashley-Steiner agency, it also mangled the true spirit of the night-owl hootenanny on a two-dimensional, one-way screen. In terms of pure folk tradition, Hootenanny was a scam. That lost authenticity of the term is reclaimed this weekend at a local event known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hootenanny,â&#x20AC;? as over two dozen local folk, acoustic and bluegrass performers converge with members of the community at the North Bay Film and Art Collective for an epic daylong gathering of song, food and stories. Co-producer Joshua Stithem says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen the old episodes of ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hootenanny, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;it takes away from the immediacy and the local factor,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The songs stop being something that you can share, and start becoming more things you observe.â&#x20AC;? To that end, this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festivities include a number of ways to foster the idea of sharing. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;jam room,â&#x20AC;? complete with chalkboard, for performers and audience to sit side-by-side and swap chords, songs and technique. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be face-painting and a puppet show. And in addition to the 24 nonstop performers on two different stages, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a barbecue, a bunch of chili and cornbread, local produce from CSA farms and more. Stithem has been sending out emails, asking people to bring home-baked pie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a mountain of pie,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And a donation spittoon, if we can ďŹ nd one.â&#x20AC;? The core of any hootenanny, of course, are the songs, most of them old as the hills and sung with purpose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These songs,â&#x20AC;? Stithem says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;are like tools. They did things. They had a social function, and even a physical function, either with working, or lifecycle events like marriages. So to break it open and share it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re letting a song do its thing.â&#x20AC;? Terming it less a concert and more a â&#x20AC;&#x153;decentralized performance experience,â&#x20AC;? Stithem says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really want to provide a social experience that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually necessarily see when it comes to music, when it comes to our food, and performance in general. Where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an availability of the art and the skills.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hootenanny,â&#x20AC;? featuring the Easy Leaves, the Crux, the Brothers Comatose, Waters, Jeremy Lightell, SkifďŹ&#x201A;e Symphony, Lonesome Holler String Band, Old Jawbone, the Mighty Chiplings, Brian Fitzpatrick, Andrew Maurer, Petticoat Discipline, the Plectrum Duo and many, many more, gets pickinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Saturday, Feb. 27, at the North Bay Film and Art Collective, 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 4pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; midnight. $7; kids under 12, free. 707.360.7288.

0B24=B8>= Pascal Toussaint was plucked from a Paris cabaret, his voice mistaken for a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

5a^\?PaXb fXcW;^eT Novelist Amy Tan brings singer Pascal Toussaint to the limelight By David Sason

0

my Tanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novels are powerful portraits of family struggles, particularly between Chinese mothers and American daughters. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly surprising to see her name on the calendar of Yoshiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in San Francisco, where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll introduce Parisian singing sensation Pascal Toussaint this Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done this,â&#x20AC;? she says, seated in her Sausalito home before turning to Toussaint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe in another life you were my son or my daughter,â&#x20AC;? she says with a chuckle. Indeed, Tan exudes a maternal energy around her discovery, even gently scolding Toussaint about forgetting his cell phone again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this talent, this voice, this emotion needs to be heard,â&#x20AC;? she tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it would be a tragedy if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tragedyâ&#x20AC;? doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem hyperbolic after hearing Toussaintâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice, a gorgeously high, piercing intonation much like a female mezzo-soprano, with a range spanning four octaves. Whether singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Je Suis Maladeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Funny Valentine,â&#x20AC;? Toussaint recalls a myriad of jazz greatsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nina Simone, Jimmy

THE BOHEMIAN



Scott, Josette DaydĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while exhibiting his wholly singular expression. It was his rendition of â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Loves You Porgyâ&#x20AC;? that struck Tan in a Paris cabaret last summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Her voice is wonderful,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she remembers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and then after a while, I realized it was not a woman, it was a man. Then I stalked him.â&#x20AC;? Tan made contact with Toussaint via MySpace with an extremely gushing note. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, wow,â&#x20AC;? Toussaint says, using his hands to describe the long message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know my voice had this power.â&#x20AC;? Although 29, the petite Toussaint could pass for half that, in part because of his gentle, high-pitched voice. The result of a rare congenital anomaly, his voice did not break at puberty. Toussaint is the rare countertenor, reaching the highest registers without using falsetto. This only accentuates his palpable charisma, an alluring androgyny highlighted by a handsome face and beautiful braids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole life people made me feel I was special, even my parents,â&#x20AC;? says Toussaint, who studied at the Conservatoire in Paris. His choir-director father has always been supportive, yet strict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He used to tell me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You have the voice, but talent is nothing without work.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Tan can relate, with 15 years of classical piano training as a girl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother and father had dreams that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a performer, but I had a terrible first recital, so I was never going to do public performance,â&#x20AC;? she remembers. But Tan does sing for the Rock Bottom Remainders, a rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll collective of published writers that includes Maya Angelou and Stephen King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in this band making a fool of myself,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because I have no vocal talent.â&#x20AC;? Back in 2008, the lover of opera also co-write one, based on her novel The Bonesetterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daughter. Yet her current musical focus remains clear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m his Chinese Godmother,â&#x20AC;? she says with a smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you provide the opportunity, what should happen, will happen. I never would have predicted that what happened to me would happen.â&#x20AC;? Although heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now fielding interest from record labels and music festivals, Toussaint remains grounded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My big dream is to perform at Madison Square Garden,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but as long as I keep on singing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m good.â&#x20AC;? A budding composer, Toussaintâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite original song in his repertoire is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The First Time.â&#x20AC;? He explains: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the first time you see someone, and you just think â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even speak, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think, and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know who you are anymore, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Is it about anyone in particular? He laughs intriguingly, then gives me a sly little smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too curious.â&#x20AC;? A star is born, folks. Pascal Toussaint and Amy Tan appear on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre (142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 7:30pm. $16â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 415.383.9600) and on Sunday, Feb. 28, at Yoshiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (1330 Fillmore St., San Francisco. 8pm. $25. 415.655.5600).

n an effort to educate a global audience on a critical need to clean up the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oceans, the 31-year-old banking heir David de Rothschild and his skipper Jo Royle will set sail aboard their 60-foot eco-friendly catamaran, christened the Plastiki, next month to travel 11,000 miles from San Francisco to Syndey, Australia. The boat will weather storms and harsh sea conditions on the openocean route, hoping to stay out of Davy Jones Locker. What makes this a slightly different launch is that the boat is solely composed of old plastic water bottles. The San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based design team for the Plastiki has overcome some challenges in the past year, many of which have to do with vesselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique design. Its two hulls are composed of 12,000 whole two-liter bottles, some with their labels still displayed. Almost everything on the boat is repurposed plastic, from the deck to the cabin to the holds to the hatchesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and even the sails. Melted and held together with cashew nut glue, this boat reportedly glides through the bay with barely a ripple. The Plastiki and its mission were inspired by the 1947 journey of the Kon-Tiki, in which explorer Thor Heyerdahl used only the materials and technologies available to South Americans in pre-Columbian times to show that South American people could have settled Polynesia. A 4,300-mile, 101-day journey found the raft cross the Pacific Ocean successfully. Rothschild hopes to send a message with his mission that waste can be used as a resource. The Plastikiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew of five men will brave the three-month journey with little but sunbathing as entertainment and a stationary bike for exercise. Keeping in tune with the environmental adventure, an organic garden on board will be fertilized with compost made up of the crewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste. The boat, although fascinating, is said to be a slow traveler; sailing by wind makes for restricted maneuvering when out to sea. Rothschild, a novice sailor, is confident in the vessel and says he will sail without a trail boat. National Geographic will accompany to film the trip and the crew will blog about their adventure. The Plastiki is anchored in Fort Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Horseshoe Cove in Sausalito for public viewing on Thursday, Feb. 25, from 5:30pm to 7pm. Rothschild and Royle speak at 6pm at the Cavallo Point Lodge, 601 Murray Circle, Ft. Baker. $7â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$10. 415.561.3560. Morgan Carvajal

. . . possibly you, if you hit one of the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oscar parties ollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best will be crowned on March 7 at the 82nd annual Academy Awards. Oscar night is sure to be filled with glitz, glam and humor as hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin announce film favorites and gold statue winners. The tradition of awarding good films dates back to May 11, 1927, when the first ceremony was held at the Biltmore Hotel. This year, celebrities will walk the red carpet to the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles to honor the most moving, most hilarious and most thrilling films of 2009. Although the live audience will watch from the theater auditorium, it is tradition for many to gather with a group of friends to shout, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, I loved that movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to win!â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup to the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Academy Awards celebrations is diverse and exciting. A glass of wine, good food and good company will finish out the 2009 films and lift the bar for 2010. Called the Napa Valley Red Carpet Extravaganza, the Robert Mondavi Winery plays host to the 22nd annual Napa Valley Academy Awards Gala that day with a silent auction, balloon prizes, live entertainment and dancing to make this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award show unique. This affair also marks the anniversary of the Napa Valley fundraising event for AIDS outreach and prevention. Over 25 of the valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest restaurants will be represented. Robert Mondavi Winery 7801 St. Helena Hwy., Oakville. 5pm to 11pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$75. 707.738.4040. For the 16th year, the California Film Institute hosts Oscar Night America at the Christopher B. Smith Film Center in San Rafael. The festivities will begin early for the pre-show and include a silent auction featuring a one-of-a-kind outing with Marin filmmakers and brothers Logan and Noah Miller, who shot their film Touching Home in West Marin. Drinks, hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres and dinner will be served as guests watch the show in the Rafaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state-of-the-art theaters. The Academy of Motion Arts and Science officially sanctions this event, and guests will receive the official program of the 82nd award show as a souvenir. Smith Rafael Film Center, 1118 Fourth St, San Rafael. 3:30pm. $40â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$55; $750 for VIP guests, includes butler service. 415.526.5841 The sixth annual Party at the Lark will reward a guest for having the winning nominee ballot. The event features a silent auction, gifts for the most glamorous and most creative outfits, and food and wines. Lark Theater, 549 Magnolia Ave., Larkspur. 4pm. $40â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$75. 415.924.5111.

Zach Mason takes a surreal variation on the Odysseus tale eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all heard, in part or in whole, the tale of Homerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Odysseyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;how Odysseus, the clever, longsuffering hero of the Trojan War, takes 10 years to get home to his faithful wife, Penelope, having a seemingly endless series of life-threatening and erotic adventures along the way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an epic feast of Freudian symbolism, a middle-aged fantasy of resilient ingenuity and potency, a tale of identity lost and regained. Now the Odyssey has come to us in another form, disguised as cleverly and strategically as Odysseus himself when cloaked by the goddess Athenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concealing mists. Only neither Odysseus nor Athena were writers or poets, and Zachary Mason, author of The Lost Books of the Odyssey, is both. He appears March 1 at Book Passage. The Lost Books takes the form of a series of carefully crafted vignettes that rework the well-worn paths of the Odyssey with a deftly innovative lyrical style and a compelling philosophical, even metaphysical, slant. Framed by the pretense of â&#x20AC;&#x153;translatingâ&#x20AC;? recently discovered fragments of â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-Ptolemaic papyrus excavated from the desiccated rubbish mounds of Oxyrhynchusâ&#x20AC;? and containing dozens of variations on the Odysseus story, Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narrative is at times playful in its revisions and at others darkly chilling. Time and its variable, ironic nature is a central theme in Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work; almost every one of the vignettes bends or refracts time in order to imagine alternative destinies for the mythical heroes whose archetypal quests form the foundation of Western culture. Besides Odysseus, Mason reworks scenes from legends about Theseus, Agamemnon, Achilles and Alexander the Great, all of which shatter any previous fixed notions we might have had about these figures. Some of the most interesting terrain subjected to Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radical revisions are the women of the Odyssey. Odysseusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wife, Penelope, takes many different forms throughout the vignettes, most memorably that of a shape-shifting wild woodland creature. Odysseusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; witchy lover Circe turns out to be the leader of the Bacchae. He is also propositioned by the goddess Athena, and, unbeknownst to him, hapless Ariadne, after her abandonment by Theseus, takes on a new identity as the seductress Calypso. Reading Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book is a journey through the imagination via lush, eloquent prose that will re-ignite a love of mythology within its readers, or, if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there before, inspire entirely fresh insights into the ways that myths shape and inform the way we tell the stories of our lives. Zachary Mason reads from The Lost Books of the Odyssey on Monday, March 1, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.
