How group think rules what we like By Clive Thompson

2

an you persuade people to like a product by telling them that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular? Do teenagers like Taylor Swift because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good or because everyone else they know likes her, so, hey, she must be good, right? Sociologist Robert Merton dubbed this tendency to base what we think on what other people are doing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;self-fulfilling prophecyâ&#x20AC;? in 1949, and since then social scientists have tried to measure how powerful it actually is. Now, based on some studies conducted with the help of the internet, it seems clear that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re often just sheep. A few years ago, Duncan Watts, a network-theory pioneer and scientist at Yahoo and Columbia University, wanted to test the strength of self-fulfilling prophecies in pop culture. The problem, he realized, was that to really explore the phenomenon youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to rewind history. For example, I could argue that Madonna is famous because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uniquely talented. You could counterargue that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just lucky; she got picked up by the right label at the right time, and enough people glommed onto her. But what if you could replay history with different conditions? If Madonna becomes famous each time, then her success is due to raw talent. If not, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just luck. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rewind history, of course. But Watts devised a clever way to simulate the effect. He and his collaborator, Matthew Salganik, created a music-downloading website. They uploaded 48 songs by unknown bands and got people to log on to the site, listen to the songs, then rate and download them. Users could see one anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rankings, and they were influenced in roughly the same way self-fulfilling prophecies are supposed to work. That meant some tunes could become hitsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and others dudsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;partly because of social pressure. Watts and Salganik ran the experiment over and over, each time with a new group of people, until theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gotten 12,900 participants. In essence, they rewound history each time. Every new group started fresh, listened to the same 48 songs, and made up their collective mind. The result? Different songs were hits with different groups. A few songs frequently, but

not always, hovered near the top, and a few at the bottom. But for most of the tracks, successâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or failureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;seemed random. Or as Watts concluded, about half of a songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movement could be attributed to intrinsic appeal. The rest was luck. Rerun history, and Madonna, it seems, could be working as a waitress. So what about advertising, marketing and hucksterism? Can you browbeat people into thinking something is popular when it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t? To figure that out, Watts and Salganik ran a deliciously devious experiment. They took the song ratings of one group and inverted them so bottom-ranked music was now at the top. Then they gave these rankings to a fresh set of listeners. In essence, they lied to the new group; they told them that songs that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t popular with previous listeners actually were. The new listeners dutifully took their social cues from the bogus popularity rankingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they ranked the fake high ones high, even downloading them, while snubbing the fake low ones. Apparently, flat-out lying works. But only sometimes. Eventually, some of the previously top-ranked songs began to creep back up, and previously bottom-ranked ones slid down. And people in the upside-down world downloaded fewer songs overall. Maybe the participants sensed that the ratings somehow werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accurate and started to wonder about the entire system. If so, this strikes a small but happy blow for quality. It also offers a cautionary tale to marketers: If you lie about the merits of your product, you might suppress demand across your entire sector. It will be exciting to see how this â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple worldsâ&#x20AC;? paradigm gets used to test selffulfilling prophesies in other areasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like financial markets. Learning how to avoid a bank run or currency collapse could come in handy these days.

Rerun history, and Madonna, it seems, could be working as a waitress.

=4FCF>C78A3BA4@D8A4<4=C I very much appreciate the Bohemian devoting a cover to the story about PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diabolical Prop. 16, and I further appreciate the many helpful and accurate aspects of the article, but I feel compelled to point out a few things. First, the subtitle of the article is factually incorrect. PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war on public utilities does not â&#x20AC;&#x153;go to the ballot as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Right to Vote Act.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Prop. 16 goes to the ballot as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The New Two-thirds Requirement for Local Public Electricity Providers,â&#x20AC;? a title that far more accurately describes what the proposition is about. It is a woeful mischaracterization of the Prop. 16 title issue to write that Prop. 16 â&#x20AC;&#x153;has also been called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The New Two-thirds Requirement . . .â&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Jerry Brown,â&#x20AC;? as though he just decided to call it that over a cup of coffee with a friend. The correct characterization is that the attorney general did his job and legally struck down the deceptive and Orwellian title that PG&E had attempted to slip past the secretary of state and the people.

Second, the author writes that PG&E is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;contributor to the Yes on 16 campaignâ&#x20AC;? and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;PG&E has donated . . . to the cause and pledged . . . more.â&#x20AC;? Words like â&#x20AC;&#x153;donateâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;causeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;pledgeâ&#x20AC;? evoke some kind of noble and admirable activity. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not be naĂŻve here. PG&E has not contributed, donated or pledged anything to any cause other than its own, motivated by sheer greed, arrogance and contempt for the voters. There is no â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes on 16 Campaignâ&#x20AC;? that is distinct from PG&E. Prop. 16 is of, by and for PG&E. Finally, according to statewide polling on the subject, the question about electricity rates is the most important issue to voters about Prop. 16. In Sonoma County, I would bet that the environment ranks higher as a motivator than in the rest of the state, but on the rate issue, the fact is that PG&E has the highest rate in the state with $4 billion to $6 billion in rate hikes pending before the California Public Utilities Commission. According to the American Public Power Association, public power utilities average 14 percent lower rates than private

corporate utilities like PG&E. PG&E has the gall to call public power fiscally risky and frighten voters into changing the California constitution in the interest of a single corporate monopoly. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled. Vote NO on Prop. 16.

F>>3H70BC8=6B B410BC>?>;

02A>=H<02A8<>=H Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always enjoyed reading the Bohemian.The article written regarding PG&E and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right to Vote Actâ&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Power Mad,â&#x20AC;? March 31) was good in that it caused people to stop and think about the issue. However, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m offended by the use of PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s logo on the cover with such disrespectful internet slang. I respect freedom of speech, but for those of us who work for PG&E, have seen the sacrifices our co-workers makeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sometimes the ultimate sacrifice, especially during disastersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the use of â&#x20AC;&#x153;WTFâ&#x20AC;? comes across to me as small-minded and an inappropriate use of our logo. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m certain it got lots of chuckles, and if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you were after, then you probably succeeded.

<0;C7DB80=<>A0;8CH The argument for extending longevity is essentially one that only really concerns the wealthy and healthy (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morality Math,â&#x20AC;? March 24). The philosophical discussion is hollow and self-serving from both sides, as it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really address that the more old people, living to be 150 or so, the fewer Third Worlders there will be with enough food to eat, air to breathe and room to live. It is far less the divvying up the total amount of happiness than the truly Malthusian issue of overpopulation within limited resources. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got enough here in the North Bay, for the most part; but where is the clean water, air, land, coming from to support all the long-lifers? I have watched the enormous resources that even centenarians take up in end-of-life care. To suggest that the First World should enjoy 150 years of life while the Third World struggles for half of that is unseemly. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not advocating for abbreviating anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life; however, purposely extending it, without also genuinely extending clean air, water, food, energy, for the entire world, is unethical.

Chemotherapy drugs can work wonders for cancer patients, but what might they do to the rest of us? By Bruce Robinson

ÂşF

hat is that stuff ?â&#x20AC;? Jim Mulowney wondered as he watched a hazardous waste crew disposing of used medical syringes. The only answer he got was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not regulated.â&#x20AC;? More specifically, he learned that the syringes had held a chemotherapy drug, also known as a mutagen. So Mulowney read through the material safety data sheet for the drug, and he recalls, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The side effects said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;May cause cancer. May cause heritable genetic damage.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And then, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;May cause harm to the unborn child.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I went back to the guys who were breaking the syringes and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta stop doing that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Then, with a curiosity informed by a chemistry degree and 20 years in the hazardous-waste-disposal business, Mulowney

checked out the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations for such drugs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was in disbelief,â&#x20AC;? he says, still incredulous three years later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people who manufacture them are basically in spacesuits: Level 1 containment, zero exposure allowed. And then the chemical is shipped to the pharmacy and the pharmacist is in a Level 3 biological safety cabinet, as if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re handling anthrax. And once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done,â&#x20AC;? he shakes his head, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrown away.â&#x20AC;? The drugs in question are known as cytotoxins, developed specifically to break through the wall of a cancer cell, attack the DNA inside and break off chromosomes so the cancer cell cannot reproduce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These chemicals work on every cell, not just cancer cells,â&#x20AC;? Mulowney cautions, adding that they are also administered in extremely small concentrations, some as low as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nanogram

per liter, a part per trillionâ&#x20AC;? solution. And just like virtually all other medicines, not all of the active compound is used within the patient. If 10 percent of the material or less is absorbed by the body â&#x20AC;&#x153;and your hair falls out,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you should be concerned about where the rest of the material goes.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not limited to flushing the toilet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A patient on these drugs, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come through their skin, and they can actually breathe it out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excreted through your hair and through your sweat glands. Some of the greatest exposure to these cytotoxic drugs is to the people doing the laundry from the hospitals.â&#x20AC;? Of course, today many cancer patients take their chemotherapy doses at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a worldwide issue,â&#x20AC;? agrees Lynn Small, deputy director of environmental services for the city of Santa Rosa, adding that although some studies are %-

Dr. Shane Snyder is a longtime researcher for the Southern Nevada Water Authority in Las Vegas who now is co-director of the University of Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laboratory for Emerging Contaminants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our analytical capabilities allow us to detect almost any chemical that we can imagine, anywhere on the planet,â&#x20AC;? Sydner told the Santa Rosa Board of Public Utilities last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What really matters is how much weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exposed to and [how that impacts] our health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concern about pharmaceuticals is unwarranted,â&#x20AC;? he said after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time we hear about a bioactive substance thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detected in water, we should be concerned. What I also promote is a better understanding of what these concentrations mean.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what worries Dr. Fred Corson, chairman of the Clean Water Coalition of Northern Sonoma County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People talk about pharmaceuticals not being a concern in wastewater because their doses are so low and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re extensively studied for toxicityâ&#x20AC;? at the drugsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prescribed doses, he says. Corson argues that there is a critical distinction to be made â&#x20AC;&#x153;between acute toxicity and chronic toxicity.â&#x20AC;? Cytotoxins and other pharmaceuticals â&#x20AC;&#x153;may well have chronic human health impacts at very, very low levels that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been studied or evaluated yet,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt that these cancertreatment drugs are among the most toxic chemicals produced as human pharmaceuticals,â&#x20AC;? concurs Snyder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, in the limited studies Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen, they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been detected in water. Our team has looked for a subset of chemotherapy drugs, and we did not detect them. However, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure if we had the right ones or not.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the problem, says Mulowney, noting that water regulators have identified about 200 potentially hazardous pharmaceuticals, cytotoxins among them. The issue is so critical that, for the first time ever, he says, the DEA and the EPA are working together to address it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not trying to scare people,â&#x20AC;? Mulowney insists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to sugar-coat it, to tell you every scientist Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to has told me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m crazy. They just shake their heads and go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Will Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new iPad save printâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sorry ass? By Daedalus Howell

C

here will come a time when the sleek, electronic tablet device known to all as the Apple iPad will look as quaint and anachronistic as an abacus. Until then, we cannot help but marvel at its glory as we once did over squares ping-ponging across the dark void of a cathode ray tube. The iPad has been heralded as a prospective savior of the ailing publishing industry with particular emphasis put on how it will reel magazines back from the brink and escort institutions like the Gray Lady across the digital divide and into the 21st century. As is oft reported with Nietzschean succinctness, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Print is dead.â&#x20AC;? However, that does not mean that the New York Times is penning its own obit. On the contrary, it and its brethren are on the eve of a renaissance. What the arrival of a multimedia device such as the iPad really means to publishing is the emancipation of written content, which, heretofore, has been distributed via ink and paper and, to a lesser degree, cut and pasted onto the web. If the iPad proves as virulent a market maker as the other devices in its gene pool, we will soon consume our media diets with our fingers, pinching and swiping at apps from a radiant touch-screen. There was a time when the medium and the message were the same, but, alas, Marshall Mcluhan is dead, too. The iPad seeks to make the message the message, and the message is, in the words of Sausalito-based tech visionary Stewart Brand, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;information wants to be free.â&#x20AC;? Mind you, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeâ&#x20AC;? in the pecuniary sense but rather in the runningnaked-and-bat-shit-crazy-down-the-InfiniteLoop sense of the word. The connective tissue that links analog and the digital media has always been the information it contained. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as if content has gone from a solid (analog media like books and vinyl LPs) to a liquid (the malleable digital media of CDs and DVDs) to a gas (content literally stowed in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cloudâ&#x20AC;? and downloaded in digital drops). Or how about:

books, magazines and newspapers are to rolling papers what the iPad is to a bong. And by â&#x20AC;&#x153;bong,â&#x20AC;? we mean the kind sold as kits from the nether reaches of the internet and assembled in garages into bubbling, wheezing edifices that outshine their purpose. Indeed, the iPadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship to content is akin to how the tobacco industry once referred to cigarettes as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nicotine delivery device.â&#x20AC;? The quiet hope among media moguls is that we will become addicted to content as never before in its f lashy new digs. Of course, Apple is not without its missteps. In its Jurassic period, circa 1993, it rolled out its first tablet device, the Newton. A clunky, chunky socalled personal digital assistant, the Newton cost the equivalent in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dollars of $1.5 billion to develop, and its deficiencies relative to its abilities resulted in a product that did little more than function as a pricey paperweight. Of course, this all went down before Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in-house messiah Steve Jobs returned, bringing with him the era of the lowercase i appended to everything (surely the iBong is being beta-tested in some Silicon Valley bedroom). But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a name? The Long Tail retail concept, as popularized by Wired Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Anderson in his 2006 tome The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More, found expression of sorts when Apple finally revealed the name of its tablet to general derision a few months ago. Somehow, unbeknownst to its marketing department, MadTV had produced a sketch parodying the iPod by linking it to the feminine hygiene aisle, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;iPad,â&#x20AC;? back in 2005. The five-year-old sketch enjoyed a brief surge on the YouTube charts (nearly as fast as the rapidly trending Twitter topic â&#x20AC;&#x153;iTamponâ&#x20AC;?) and snagged CNN coverage for its star and lead writer along the way. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;da thunk Apple would fail to Google its prospective product name? Who cares. It beats sliding beads along a wooden frame.

The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;New York Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is not penning its own obit. On the contrary, it and its brethren are on the eve of a renaissance.

hose egg cartons we threw away last week, crusted with dried yolk and unrecyclable? I figured they were garbage. But lawyers representing Solano County, practicing what I call semantics dumpster-diving, want to pull those cartons out of the trash and pop them into a more convenient category known as interstate commerce. Call it commerce, and suddenly they can get around those pesky Solano County voters who already decided, via Measure E, that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the Potrero Hills Landfill enlarged. Those voters said that 95,000 tons of garbage from other counties is enough. But where there is money to be made by trash-hauling companies and critically important climate issues for local government to avoid, lawyers can be hired to get around voters and make a bigger landfill possible. Some people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice or care. But we need to notice and care very much, and not only because Napa and Sonoma counties also export garbage to Solano County. Even if we never see this landfill or the others to which our garbage goes, the quality of our lives is increasingly determined by the last place anyone would look for answers to climate protection: the dump. So while the Solano haulers and county supervisors might prefer to signal the bulldozers to begin, they are for the moment tied up in a legal contest. We owe a debt to the Sierra Club for stepping in to file a lawsuit, ostensibly to stand in the way of a landfill expansion that would fill in (read: destroy) wetlands. But the bigger picture thinking behind the Sierra Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingness to block business as usual between haulers and local governments is this: landfill management has got to change soon and change radically in order to prevent one of the worst and most overlooked contributors of greenhouse gas emissions, methane gas, produced by buried organic garbage in landfills. Methane can make up more than half of landfill gasses. Its contribution to global warming is between 25 and 72 times greater than that of CO2. While concern about greenhouse gas emissions has prompted

efforts to capture methane and turn it into electricity, there are serious problems with this solution, including greed-induced tricks to increase methane production in order to increase profits from its energy production. Landfill operators are allowed a great deal of leeway to manage (and mismanage) a gas that seriously threatens our climate and does not need to be produced in the first place. The Sierra Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent â&#x20AC;&#x153;Landfill Gas to Energy Task Force Reportâ&#x20AC;? states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;even the best landfill gas-collection systems are able to capture only a portion of the gas generated. While the amount of landfill gas that is captured can be measured, there is currently no way to measure directly the amount of gas generated within the accumulated waste or the amount that escapes uncontrolled to the environment. Guesstimates of gas collection efficiency vary . . . from as low as 20 percent to as much as 75 percent, and sometimes even greater than 90 percent.â&#x20AC;? The organization advocates that organic material be removed from the waste stream altogether so that methane gas is not created in the first place. That big, green yard-waste container that gets picked up every week and those local composting workshops are part of a big-picture attempt to reduce and eventually eliminate the amount of organic materials taken to landfills. Not every community is supporting this effort yet. But organizations like the Sierra Club are pressing for urgent change in the regulation of our waste streams and our landfills. Members of that organization believe stronglyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as do many other thinking peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that there should be no organic debris getting buried and creating methane gas and CO2. Yet as long as governments ignore progressive waste-management strategies, and as long as money can be made and social problems buried by creating bigger holes in the ground, I suspect there will be lawyers getting hired to prevent progressive action. Some of them may even practice semantics dumpster-diving, upholding haulersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights to profit, knocking over voter decisions and helping to keep methane seeping out of landfills and into the atmosphere in one way or another.

The quality of our lives is increasingly determined by the last place anyone would look for answers to climate protection: the dump.

3^]žc1TP;^RP1^aT Eating close is great, but sometimes you just want some Italian Parm By Clark Wolf Splitting his time between Guerneville and Manhattan, acclaimed consultant Clark Wolf graces these pages with Napkin Notes, the occasional diatribe from the periodic local.

C

he locavore life is lovely, especially if you live in the middle of temperate farmland and are in good health with an engaging life and plenty of resources. But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it: absolute locavorism is a stunt, a fetish and sometimes a book deal, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the best, tastiest or most thoughtful way to live in the natural world, in a true balance of sustainable living. Sometimes I think that Slow Food USA is an oxymoron, a battleground of core conflict. You put 100,000 Italians together to talk food, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tussle passionately, but mostly about detail and nuance because the basics are a market basket of deeply treasured givens: fresh vegetables, good cheeses, cured pork, protein in small amounts, some fish, lots of passed-on

recipes and a dedication to the importance and pleasures of every morsel. You put 30 Americans in a room to talk about food, and in 20 minutes half of them have run off to start a new company to make and sell whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been discussed or disclosed. Each has its place and value but, with all of our (and certainly my own) serious dedication to American artisan foodways, sometimes you just need Parmigiano Reggiano. Some real-deal benchmarks and standard bearers deserve to enjoy our support as part of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pantry. Sometimes a slow boat across a large ocean is in fact the most efficient and thoughtful way to move food and other important goods. I love some of the locally roasted coffees in the region, from Peetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to Flying Goat, Taylor Maid to Stumptown, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be pulling up vines to plant a rainforest (except maybe in Cazadero), so the beans need to be brought. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thrilled that little acai berries are building a world of antioxidation and a stronger economy for Brazil, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to lose persimmons and Gravensteins, even if the acai palms would live happily along the Russian River.

I certainly want people to know the joy of Sonoma-grown goodness (even if it winds up in a bottle), Marin County beef and dairy, our brilliant black pig bacon. I want folks to hear about and taste our favorite treats, not only buying them wherever they live, but perhaps deciding to pay us a visit to discover the other priceless free stuff along the North Bay region that makes us so happy and well-regarded: the orchards and redwoods, rivers and meadows, dramatic coast and dreamy grasslands, charming towns and some of the best bakers, cheese makers, organic and dry farm folks anywhere. Sometimes we need to send it, sometimes goâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or welcome someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for a visit to nibble the blarney stone of timeless foodways. So support the local, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a loca-bore. We have a lot to share and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be selfish, a shame and economically devastating if we thought for a moment of keeping it all to ourselves. Clark Wolf is a Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; and New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; based food and restaurant consultant, the author of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;American Cheeses: The Best Regional, Artisan, and Farmhouse Cheesesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a regular contributor on KSROâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Driveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Steve Jaxon.

onveniently timed with the latest National Geographic magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special issue dedicated to solving the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water crisis, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Earth Day celebration at Iron Horse Winery revolves around the theme of all things water, including seafood, water-related local art, cute surfers pouring wine, and information on becoming more water-conscious in every day life.

The event beneďŹ ts two water-focused organizations. The Monterey Bay Aquariumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood Watch Program educates consumers on the political correctness and safety of the ďŹ sh we eat. National Geographicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ocean Now Initiative funds explorations into the depths of our seas in order to discover the vast diversity of those relatively uncharted waters and how humans can preserve them. National Geographic marine biologist Dr. Tierny Thys will make a presentation on underwater sea exploration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course we want to raise money for and awareness about these valuable programs,â&#x20AC;? says Iron Horse CEO Joy Sterling as she walks through her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 300-acre vineyard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this event is also about our community and celebrating this beautiful part of the world we live in.â&#x20AC;? Based in the Green Valley appellation, Sterling is dedicated to working with and supporting local businesses, including the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other participating Green Valley wineries. With winetasting, an abundance of sustainably harvested seafood, bread, desserts and fresh produce from local bakers and farms, Iron Horseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third annual Earth Day celebration is a steal at $50 general admission. The $250 VIP admission includes a private reception with sparkling wine and sustainably farmed California Osetra caviar. Look for it on Sunday, April 18, noon to 4pm at Iron Horse Vineyards, 9786 Ross Station Road, Sebastopol. 707.887.1507.

?A>7818C8>= B?40:40BH F8=42;D1 hen I see the Tommy gun prominently displayed behind the barâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the trademark drum magazine, the handsome wood gripâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it reminds me, oddly enough, of a story from my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s European travels. One day at lunch in a French cafe, the waitress asked her where she was from. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ah, Chicago!â&#x20AC;? the waitress exclaimed, happily making her pointed ďŹ ngers into a gun: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rat-a-tat tat-tat-tat!â&#x20AC;? Grandmother, who grew up during the 1930s, was not amused.

Prohibition is not happily remembered in wine country, either. Blind-sided by the 18th Amendment, believing themselves to be producers of a near-temperance beverage in comparison to demon rum, the local wine industry was in denial until too late. Casks were axed, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said that the creeks ďŹ&#x201A;owed red. While some growers did well shipping grapes to home winemakers, Prohibition had the effect of popularizing more potent spirits, setting the stage for the cocktail culture of the 1950s. All of which makes for an unusual wine-bar theme. But gangsterism plus time equals the fun stuff of lore, after all, and the Speakeasyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebratory ďŹ&#x201A;outing of the Volstead Act is stylishly executed. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;frontâ&#x20AC;? is a gift shopâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;winey knickknacks and boozamabobsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nothing to see here, ofďŹ cer. Those in the know are directed to an antique phone booth in the corner. As in clandestine speakeasies of old, a disguised wall is a secret door leading to the debauchery within. Speakeasy boasts 16 gas-driven wine taps, and a selection of wines mounted above the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chicago typewriter.â&#x20AC;? While tasting ďŹ&#x201A;ights are not offered, servers will gladly pour a sample for the try-beforeyou-buy set in a shot glass. By-the-glass offerings include Williams Selyem, and a George Wines 2008 Sonoma Coast â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sonoma Comaâ&#x20AC;? Pinot Noir ($12.50 glass) with simple and fun bright cherry and vanilla-oak ďŹ&#x201A;avor. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also easy to get primed on the cheap from a keg of Mas CuvĂŠe 2007, a sturdy, brambly red for just ďŹ ve clams. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bubbly Toad Hollow Amplexus ($7 glass), or for those who get no kick from Cremant, suds both cold and apropos from San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Speakeasy Ales & Lagers. Seated around barrel-head tabletops or at the bar on haute modern gas-cushioned stools, club patrons can gather around a bottle, sans cuisine besides crackersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; so far, this is strictly a juice joint. Thematic cocktails are made with mixers and liqueur, but no hard stuff, and all the wine here is strictly on the level. Hey, it would be swell if garage winemakers itching to unload that stash of bootleg Barbera could just knock three times on the back door. But keep on knocking. Prohibition Speakeasy Wine Club, 340 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. Open daily, 11am to 9pm. 707.473.9463.

elationship workbooks have a bad rap. Often, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re treated like multivitamins. No thanks. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need thoseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong enough without â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em! And on other occasions, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more like a glossy Hustler magazine, shoved deep down in your shopping basket, buried casually among your purchases. Oh, gee. How did that ever make its way in there? But wait. What about within the graceful dynamic of the femme-et-femme relationship? Well, with the publication of Working It Out: A Lesbian Relationship Primer (BookSurge Publishing; $19.95), it turns out, the stigma still stands. Written by Sonoma County psychologist Dr. Frances S. Fuchs, Working It Out looks like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hooked on Phonicsâ&#x20AC;? for your gay relationship. There are writing exercises, fill-in-the-blank exercises and, yes, even matching games. Little black-and-white cartoons dot the pages, aiming to convince readers that dissecting every aspect of a relationship isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun! As a friend said, flipping through its chapters, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would have

THE BOHEMIAN



to really, really love someone. Like, down-on-oneknee, marry-me-today kind of love someone, to even think about reading one of these with them. Except maybe if she were Scarlett Johansson.â&#x20AC;? And there the irony lies. Chances are, when you need help with your relationship, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a state of infatuation with Ms. Johansson. The snicker factor of such books isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completely unjustified. In fact, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Exercise 19â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dealing with Differences: The Talking Stickâ&#x20AC;? might be enough to make you disregard any potential open-mindedness you had to begin with. The idea is simple: whoever has the â&#x20AC;&#x153;talking stickâ&#x20AC;? may speak, some variation of which almost all of us have encountered by the time we complete grammar school. Readers then take turns expressing their feelings in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;? statements; however, one of the suggested handy items to use as your talking stick is a tampon. I statement: I feel stupid sitting on the couch talking about my feelings while holding a tampon in the air. However, Working It Out brings something more than cynical humor to the coffee table. Even in a self-help-laden book world, lesbian relationship books can be hard to find, and Fuchs

manages to succinctly cover everything from coming out and finding a potential partner to fighting fair and the big â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do.â&#x20AC;? And while it can dangerously border on stereotyping at times, it is thankfully without mention of a U-Haul. In the end, the most noteworthy part of the book may be Fuchs herself. The granddaughter of the influential psychologist Dr. Carl R. Rodgers, author of The Handbook of Person-Centered Psychotherapy and Counseling, Fuchs is a senior associate at the Couples Center Educational Institute in Santa Rosa, and her sensibility and kindness are felt throughout the book. You get the feeling that not only does she really want to see relationships work, but she believes they can. Unlike many self-help books, Working It Out also manages to avoid being preachy. There is no know-it-all, condescending vibe to her writing, and she waxes philosophical via anecdotes instead of telling the reader what to do. And if you do end up on the dreaded couples-therapy loveseat, Fuchs seems like just the woman youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want across from you. So take heed: this book may be purchased in jest or idle curiosity, but it just may end up becoming your bedside companion.

Local literary laureates keep art alive By Leilani Clark

F

hen the Greeks ruled the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; or at least, part of itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;writers wore a laurel wreath to signify their connection to Apollo, the patron god of poets. Later, Chaucer, author of the Canterbury Tales and the first unofficial poet laureate of England, was rewarded for his duties with a daily allotment of wine. The job generally involved crafting odes to whatever royalty happened to rule the roost. These days, laureates are more likely to be teaching workshops than drinking wine and penning paeans to Henry VIII. And since culture in the United States these days is increasingly defined by watching Snookie get punched on Jersey Shore, it is a relief to note that the tradition of honoring language masters thrives in the North Bay. With that thought, we rounded up the laureates across Marin, Napa and Sonoma counties. Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth poet laureate, Gwynn Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gara, has just come from picking forget-me-nots in her Sebastopol garden. It is experiences like these, as well as watching tiger salamanders, scrub jays and garden snakes, she says, that inspire Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gara to write poetry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poets grow in silence and obscurity and darkness, like carrots or onions,â&#x20AC;? she says of being nominated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be brought out of the ground and to have my work held up is a great honor. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very pleased and still a little shy about it.â&#x20AC;? According to nomination materials, the laureate is a person whose poetry manifests a high degree of excellence, who has produced a

critically acclaimed body of work and who has a demonstrated commitment to the literary arts in Sonoma County. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Garaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the author of three chapbooks, a teacher for California Poets in the Schools since 1989 and a current facilitator for a girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poetry workshop at the Sierra Youth Center, a juvenile hall facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;fit the bill. When asked why poetry remains important today, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gara says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need the truth, and you can find truth in poetry. People need to ask questions that may not have answers, but we still, as individuals and as a culture, need to ask these questions.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gara says that one of her goals as laureate is to encourage people who may never have written a poem to pick up a pen and start writing. She is working to set up a system where peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she calls them â&#x20AC;&#x153;citizen poetsâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;can send her their poems, possibly winning an opportunity to read onstage with her at official appearances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If poetry and the arts do anything, they fortify the inner life. With that as my inspiration, and the times as they are now, my goal is to help fortify peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives through poetry,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gara says. And while Chaucer may have relished his allotment of wine, Stefanie Freele, Healdsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2011 literary laureate, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find her inspiration in the grape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m one of three people in Sonoma County who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink wine,â&#x20AC;? Freele says with a smile when asked if that was part of her laureate stipend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is wonderful is that I automatically have this connection to the literary world. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a little bit of a hub of communication with other writers.â&#x20AC;?

Author of the short-story collection Feeding Strays, which is a finalist for the Foreword Reviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Book of the Year Award, Freeleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who was raised in Wisconsin but has made her home in Northern California for many yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was nominated as laureate by members of the Healdsburg Literary Guild. Freele sees the position as a way to champion â&#x20AC;&#x153;literary citizenship,â&#x20AC;? a phrase borrowed from PEN USA president Kate Gale, and based on writers helping other writers by writing reviews, buying books and attending each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events. She also frequently spreads the news about submissions and contests via email. Her first official project will be to review and recommend books for adult and young readers for local newspapers and KCRB 91.1-FM. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying not to choose authors who are on big presses. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to spread the news of smaller press folks who can use a leg-up,â&#x20AC;? Freele says, likening herself to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;visitor-centertype personâ&#x20AC;? for ongoing literary events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need a little kiosk,â&#x20AC;? she adds with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can sit there and ask people if I can direct them to the nearest reading.â&#x20AC;? Retired Napa Valley College English instructor Gary Silva was crowned Napa County poet laureate in 2008 and still serves. Inspired to write poetry by Philip Levine while attending Cal State Fresno, Silva has since published dozens of poems in small magazines across the country He says that his goal as laureate is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;help create exciting and ongoing poetry events in the communities of Napa Valley.â&#x20AC;? As Marin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first poet laureate, Albert Flynn DeSilver believes deeply in the power of language; in fact, he sees the laureate position as being an ambassador to this line of thinking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a way of getting out there and reminding people that this power of language exists in our culture, it shapes everything that we do. To consider our words more carefully can have a huge impact on our community, on the politics, on the direction of our lives,â&#x20AC;? DeSilver says. A strong commitment to community is a main component of the nomination requirements. A few years back, as a California Poet in the Schools, DeSilver worked with elementary school children in a program that had elders creating paintings based on thirdgradersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; poems. He has conducted workshops at a grief camp for kids, and he continues to work in the community as the CEO of Visiting Angels, a senior caregiver service. DeSilverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main project as laureate has been the implementation of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;poetry chairâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;an actual chair made out of poetry books designed by artist Todd Pickering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I showed up one day at Stinson Beach. People sat down and started writing poems. There are all of these classic literary events at the libraries, but I wanted it to be a more publicly integrated process,â&#x20AC;? he says. Even as our culture seems to move further away from seeing poetry as essential, DeSilverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who recently self-published a chapbook of his own poems titled A Field Guide to the Emotionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;believes that it continues to bear importance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the most crucial points of everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives, they turn to poetry. Funerals, weddings, times of crisisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;poetry is always there, and they count on it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like this food that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only eat at certain times, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessary food.â&#x20AC;?

ruising south on Highway 101, cars whiz by billboards advertising loans and mortgages, medical marijuana consultants and weight-loss programs. But just before southern Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Todd Road exit, oddly tucked beneath redwood trees, stands a diminutive billboard with red lettering and a small airplane stating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;READ PLANE JANE, a Novel.â&#x20AC;? With just enough time to catch its message, the sign is intriguing enough to seduce passersby into wondering what kind of author would launch such a weird, and in this day and age, novel advertising campaign for his book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a harebrained idea I put together,â&#x20AC;? says Santa Rosa resident Bob Fischer, author of Plane Jane (Martin Pearl Publishing; $14). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way of measuring success because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to know if readers bought the book because of the billboards or because they saw it on Amazon.â&#x20AC;? Still, from local responses and a notable spike in Amazon sales after the billboards went up, Fischer guesstimates that maybe 10 percent of the 6,000 books heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sold so far are a result of the signs. Inspired by the old Burma Shave billboards of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;30s, the twobillboard campaign (the second is located at the downtown Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Davis Street exit) took multiple phone calls and $4,000 to become a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being able to get a location on the freeway was a miracle; it was very tough to do,â&#x20AC;? Fischer says. Caltrans estimates that 250,000 cars travel the 101 corridor through Sonoma County each day. Wanting to tap into the potential market of this captive audience, Fischer perused records in the Sonoma County Recorderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, looking for landowners between Cloverdale and Marin County along the 101. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I called 40 to 50 owners before I found one who would let me post my sign,â&#x20AC;? he says

wearily. He kept the design and message simple for easy readability from a car flying by at 60 miles per hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are attracted to things they can understand in one sentence,â&#x20AC;? Fischer explains. Plane Jane is loosely based on Fischerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiences, and that of a real woman, Air Force fighter pilot Martha McSally, who was stationed in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm. Even though she was a lieutenant colonel, Air Force officials required McSally to wear a burka off base, which she refused to do on grounds of discrimination. The Washington Post leaked the story, bringing embarrassment to the Air Force, which quietly responded by honorably discharging her. Fischerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead character, Mary Jane, is an exâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Air Force fighter pilot, discharged under the same conditions as McSally. Jane now functions as a repo woman, reclaiming luxury jets from Saudi princes and South American heads of drug cartels, who either steal the aircraft or renege on their payments. Fischer sold desalination equipment in Saudi Arabia in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, and knows what the women there endure. He adds that bribes are a common way to do business in Saudi Arabia, but if discovered by U.S. officials, are a sure way to get arrested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Saudisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; solution was to do business on airplanes, solely using cash,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d drop you off with a bag of goodies wherever you wanted, and away you went. This is absolutely factual,â&#x20AC;? Fischer emphasizes. Fischer weaves his myriad experiences into Plane Jane, and is currently writing a sequel. But due to the fact that his billboards are technically illegal (existing billboards are grandfathered into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;No roadside advertisingâ&#x20AC;? program spearheaded by Ladybird Johnson in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s), the Plane Jane campaign may disappear just like the Burma Shave signs, becoming another nostalgic novelty.

rowing up in Sonoma County, I have heard about 3,432 Grateful Dead stories, and yet there is something so charming about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Confessions of a Dead Head: Trips and Travels with a Magical Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Orange Barrel; $9) that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind hearing more. Written by â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Starburst Commander,â&#x20AC;? who discovered the Dead through repeat listens of Europe â&#x20AC;&#x2122;72 on a cross-country road trip in his 1964 Econoline, the memoir has the wide-eyed innocence of eternal youth combined with hyperbolic statements such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;greatest vocal rock stylists of all timeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;best cover band ever.â&#x20AC;? Addressing fellow fans, the Starburst Commander (he got his nickname while on LSD) provides 88 pages of stories, insights, memories and more. Drugs, vans, sex, the Greek Theatre, bootleg taping, the Wall of Sound and more are explored with pure enthusiasm, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the passage on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brokedown Palaceâ&#x20AC;? and the turning point it played in the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grieving process over his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death that epitomizes this short bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humanity. The Commander is now president of operations at Petaluma Market, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written a quick page-turner, even for the jaded ones whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard it all.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;G.M.

ife is beautiful, but for a foggy and confused mind, understanding beauty is sometimes hard to find. For Sebastopol writer Kristi Bowman, growing up a Jehovahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Witness and suffering suicidal depression made finding peace and answers a personal battle. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Journey to Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (iUniverse; $20.95) is her story of emotional healing, discovery and spiritual awakening. Bowman introduces us to her journey darkly, describing her suicide attempt, and then circles back to the beginning with a story about her complicated birth. She often refers back to stories about birth and death, and bounces between the two, to help the reader understand how each experience has affected her journey. The adversity of living her first five years with a cleft palate, and then fighting depression, rebuilding her spiritual life and discovering her sexuality makes for a compelling and moving story, complete with excerpts from personal journals, poems, quotes and dreams. With an educational background in psychology and an emphasis in counseling, Bowman now practices as a communications and relationships coach. Journey to One asks the big questions of life, and searches for answers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a journey where the great capacity of human potential and the power of overcoming adversity are proven. When Bowman is able to live out her dreams, she inspires others to do the same.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;M.C.

ebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ceres Project is a highly regarded community service providing over 25,000 gourmet meals a year to people with life-threatening illnesses and their families. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nourishing Connections: The Healing Power of Food and Communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (The Ceres Community Project; $29.95) by founders Catherine Couch and JoEllen DeNicola, expands the concept to the community at large. In a lavishly photographed 200-page book, executive director Couch and licensed nutritionist DeNicola share recipes from breakfast to dinner and the nutritional basics of each meal. They also discuss the history of the Ceres Project, and the involvement of local high school students. The authors note that introducing teens to cooking skills and the nutritional value of the meals prepared gives them lifelong knowledge for healthier living habits and improving their diets. Alternatives to established eating habits are also offered; breakfast doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean eggs or cereal. Health tips, like how to grow your own sprouts, and inspirational quotes are found in sidebars throughout the book. Pen and ink line drawings of fruits, vegetables and cooking equipment round out the beauty of this information-packed, practical and beautiful spiral-bound book. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.D.

n â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Water Giverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Simon & Schuster; $24), Marin author and San Francisco Chronicle writer Joan Ryan evokes all of the joy and elation of receiving the gift of her adopted sonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;until page 55, when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16 and gets the speed-wobbles on his skateboard on Lagunitas Road, in Ross. The resulting injury could easily have been just a pile of medical bills and a horrible episode to any other family, but Ryan, an awardwinning sportswriter, uses the trauma for a reassessment of her role as a mother. Why had she anguished so in raising her son? Why had she approached motherhood with the fact-collecting of a reporter instead of an open heart? Why was he now laying in a hospital bed with a terrible brain injury? As her son heals, so does Ryan, and her simple prose carries the reader along for a journey full of exasperation with doctors, family context, sports stories, medical details and a motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;G.M.

here is a sense of harmony in a writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vintage Voicesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Centiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Anni: May You Live 100 Yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (A Few Little Books; $12). When the skilled members of the Sonoma County branch of the California Writers Club (CWC) joined their works of poetry, memoirs, short stories and essays, they created an easy and thoughtful read. Starting with a Tomoko Fergusonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;artificial device of timeâ&#x20AC;? and following with Linda Loveland Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short story of how traffic school creates a day off for the author, this collection flows through works about the past, present and future. Stories of loss, love and life fill this anthology edited by Sonoma county locals Karen Batchelor and Catharine Bramkamp. Founded in 1909 by such historical figures as Jack London and John Muir, the CWC celebrates its centenary with this collection and finishes with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redwood Branch History.â&#x20AC;? Literary excellence is achieved through the branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto â&#x20AC;&#x153;Writers helping writersâ&#x20AC;? and Vintage Voices expresses the talent of these North Bay writers.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;M.C.

tefanie Freele has put into words the tiny domestic snapshots that we take for granted in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Feeding Straysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Lost Horse Press; $16.95), a collection of short stories. With sparse language evocative of Raymond Carver, Freele uses baking, cleaning and sleeping as conduits for lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deeper meaning, letting simple details like the smell of frosting and child-unsafe earrings hang in the readerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind. The 2010â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;11 Healdsburg literary laureate, Freele also incorporates a number of local touches into her poetic stories, including Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tin-hat movement (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tinfoilersâ&#x20AC;?) and Guernevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great flood of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;86 (leading to â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Flood of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09â&#x20AC;?). Beds are for sideways apologies, for late-night phone conversations, for sweating out a drinking binge. Ships are for nudity, for impromptu wedding engagements, for whisking away recent divorcees with nice legs and no home. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toughness in Freeleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing, belied by some wholly amusing titlesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because Condoms Seem So Desperate, She Also Buys a Fern,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;James Brown Is Alive and Doing Laundry in South Lake Tahoe,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every Girl Has an Ex Named Steveâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;but ultimately, Feeding Strays nips at the heels of raw emotion.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;G.M.

phrodite, goddess of beauty and love, would be pleased to see that her domain is strong in the United States and, indeed, the world. People, particularly women, are obsessed with beauty. Attaining and maintaining it is a multibillion dollar business, influencing consumers of every age and sex from the minute they are old enough to open a magazine or watch a TV commercial. Unfortunately, this obsession depends heavily on the chemical industry, and users of beauty aids unwittingly apply products to their bodies or faces that are unfriendly to humans and the earth. In â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Look Great, Live Green: Choosing Beauty Solutions That Are Planet-Safe and Budget-Smartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Hunter House; $16.95), Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deborah Burnes, owner of Sumbody body products and stores, debunks the cosmetic industry and gives beautyproduct consumers solid information on making better choices. Look Great covers the history of cosmetics from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cleopatra to Clearasil,â&#x20AC;? and enlightens readers on the toxins in commercial products. Burnes then offers multiple alternatives, from going â&#x20AC;&#x153;naturalâ&#x20AC;? to beautifying with organic products. Testimonies from actresses Kyra Sedgwick and Marcia Gay Harden, as well as other celebrities add color to the text. Burnes was assisted by her two daughters, and the

book contains many photos of the motherdaughters team at work. Aphrodite would be pleased with this three-woman crusade to protect her sphere of influence and the planet.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.D.

F

hat if there is no God? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the question that drove Ransom Stephensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The God Patentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Vox Novus; $14.95) to spend over 13 weeks on Sribd.comâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top 10 most-read fiction list. And while for just $4.95 one could go online and read Stephensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; involved tale of religion, spirituality, science and drugs on their computer screen, the runaway success of its online venture has finally landed the book in print. The story is rich: engineer Ryan McNear jokingly submits a patent for the human soul during the dotcom boom, buoyed by a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rewriting of the Book of Genesis as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;power generator.â&#x20AC;? Years later, with the economy in shambles, he finds a company thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually developing his patent and raking in the dough while claiming to provide eternal energy and proving Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence. Pursuing a legal claim to the patent in order to rebuild his shattered life, McNear soon finds himself torn between science and religion and fighting the insidious undercurrent to his inadvertent creation.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;G.M.

ATPSX]V1TcfTT] cWTÂźEX]Tb½ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Remains Found Amongst Old Vinesâ&#x20AC;? screams the headline from 25 years ago. A disturbing idea, and one thankfully confined to a sinister cold case that exists only in mystery maven Erica Spindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new novel, Blood Vines (St. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Press; $24.95), a thriller set in the Sonoma Valley. Riddled with deceit, wine, sexual revelations and a string of murders and suicides, Blood Vines follows Alexandra Clarkson, who, after the death of her mother, embarks on a quest back to her Sonoma roots for answers to a growing series of mysterious and unsettling events. Yet while Spindler, who earned the coveted title of New York Times bestselling author for her novel Breakneck, delivers an admittedly page-turning tale, the New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portrayal of Sonoma Valley life warrants a decided smirk. The locals are always unexplainably clothed in absurd wardrobes of buckskin, suede and boots, as though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trapped in a Soft Surroundings catalogue. And for the many who make the daily commute from Sonoma to San Francisco (or farther), Alexandraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serious preparation for the supposed trek from the city to the Valley is laughable, the vibe being that they are a thousand miles apartâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not a straight shot down the 101. To Spindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit, some level of research is apparent, and many familiar namesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from Sonoma County Sheriff Bill Cogbill to Larson Family Wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;can be found in the acknowledgements. Plot points thicken over meals (and many, many bottles of wine) at hot spots such as the Girl and the Fig, El Dorado Kitchen and the Red Grape, and Bartholomew Park Winery makes an appearance as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bart Park.â&#x20AC;? But in a disappointedly predictable fashion, Sonoma life is only shown from one side, the East Side. As with most portrayals of the small wine town, the more colorful West Side of the Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;home to Boyes Hot Springs, El Verano and Agua Calienteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;conveniently does not exist, and Sonoma, a town with a Latino influence deep in its bones, has never read so vanilla. While Blood Vines might provide a light, chilling read to those from outside the area, for residents, its amusing inaccuracies prove distracting, and with its hefty price, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth waiting till the book hits the shelves at the Sonoma County Library. After all, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the very location of one of Vinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; many twists. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Kate McFarland

MTCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Equivocationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; an ingenious thriller set backstage in Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s England By David Templeton

8

Âş

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to write a new soul into the country!â&#x20AC;? So declares William Shakespeare halfway through Bill Cainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magnificent new play Equivocation. The recent grand prize winner of the 2010 Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award, Cainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clever stab at historical fiction is a cape-and-dagger thriller set amid the homeland-security craziness of Jamesian England, not long after the thwarted â&#x20AC;&#x153;gunpowder plotâ&#x20AC;? that would have destroyed Parliament and killed the king. The playâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a wonderfully sly mix of comedy, drama, literary observation and historical sleutheryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;debuted last year at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and has since been staged by companies all over the United States. The recently opened production at Marin Theatre Company in Mill Valley, directed by Jasson Minadakis, marks Equivocationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Area premiere. In the play, Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;called Shagspeare, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shagâ&#x20AC;? by his friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is a put-upon playwright, an artist whose works have made him wealthy but who hungers to do more than entertain. In an early scene, while his acting company is rehearsing a rough draft of the unorthodox King Lear, Shag (Charles Shaw Robinson) calms his nervous actors by explaining, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to

write a play that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about revengeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been done!â&#x20AC;? Estranged from his wife, still grieving over the death of his young son and embroiled in a complicated relationship with his daughter, Judith (Anna Bullard), the dead boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twin, Shagspeare is hungry for a real artistic challenge. He gets it when he is commanded by Sir Robert Cecil, King Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; merciless secretary of state, to write a new play describing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;officialâ&#x20AC;? version of the Gunpowder Plot. That current events were, at that time, not permitted onstage, is only a minor problem for Shag. What bothers him most is his suspicion that the government-sanctioned version of the story is a tissue of lies, thinly disguised propaganda designed to end speculation that there was, perhaps, no plot at all. Whether pro-Catholic conspirators did or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to kill the king, Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; administration has been using it to confiscate property, imprison priests and justify the secret torture of government dissenters. Stalling for time, Shagspeare begins interviewing the imprisoned plotters, and eventually sets himself a dangerous new challenge: to â&#x20AC;&#x153;write a new soulâ&#x20AC;? into the country by telling the unvarnished truthâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and somehow avoid being hanged. Cainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delightfully complex play weaves numerous threads together without losing track of the story, which builds to not just one emotional climax, but two. As directed by Minadakis, a first-rate cast of six perform all the parts, with only Robinson and Bullard remaining in their specific roles. Andrew Hurteau, who plays Nate, one of Shagspeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime actors, is especially good when he steps into the role of Cecil. Bullying, threatening and dripping with danger, he is also clearly a wounded man, suffering the indignities of being called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beagleâ&#x20AC;? by the insufferable Scottish king he himself placed on the throne. Lance Gardner as the actor Armin is playfully chameleon-like in a number of supporting parts, and Craig Marker, as the hot-headed actor Sharpe, is brilliant, especially in a late scene where he plays the parts of King James and Macduff from Macbethâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at the same time. Andy Murray plays Richard Burbage, Shagâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest friend and co-creator of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cooperative ventureâ&#x20AC;? that is their acting company, also assaying the pivotal role of Father Henry Garnett. A Jesuit priest, Garnett was accused of masterminding the powder plot, but was already infamous for authoring a pamphlet on the doctrine of equivocation. Intended to help captured Catholics avoid punishment, equivocation was a method by which moral people could tell the truth and lie at the same time. That desire, to speak the truth in difficult times, is what drives the actions of Shagâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players, and what stands at the heart of this marvelous, inventive, beautifully presented show. Shagspeare yearns to write a play with a soul big enough to heal a nation. In Cainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Equivocation, it is not a country, but Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fractured soul that is ultimatelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and powerfullyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;saved. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Equivocationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through May 2 at the Marin Theatre Company, 397 Miller Ave., Mill Valley. Tuesday, Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Wednesday at 7:30pm; Sunday at 2pm and 7pm; Saturday also at 2pm. $34â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$54; pay-what-you-can Tuesday. 415.388.5208.

Souvenirs

Get Happy

Shutter Snaps

Nouvelle, M.D.

The last time John Prine played in Santa Rosa, it was Sept. 8, 2001. The twin towers still stood, as did the feeling of optimism and confidence in the economy. He played for over two hours that night, song after brilliant song, ending with an encore of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paradiseâ&#x20AC;? joined onstage by Todd Snider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lake Marieâ&#x20AC;? brought the house down, and he made beautiful chestnuts like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Souvenirs,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sam Stoneâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Got Goldâ&#x20AC;? sound shiny and new after all these years. I talked to him afterward. He was in a great mood, and said that the crowd was as great and responsive as any heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d played for. We had the luxury of being able to laugh at his songs then; something tells me those same songs might cause a tinge of sadness now. Amazingly, some seats are still available when the genuine national treasure returns on Sunday, April 11, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $40â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$50. 707.546.3600.

Everything is less than zero, except the price of tickets to the Backstreet Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; special performance at the Napa Valley Opera House this Sunday. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re $200 each! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta be a huge, huge, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d-put-it-in-all-caps-but-the-copy-editor-would-beupset huge Backstreet fan to shell out that much, especially since the Boys are only promising to play a whopping eight songs. Eight songs! Sure, you get a 20-minute Q&A session and a group photo, but really? $200? Heck, for only $130, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a virtual steal to see Elvis Costello play there solo, and I guarantee heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play for at least an hour and a half. Costello has something like 978 songs to choose fromâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Backstreet Boys, maybe a few dozen at the most? Seeing Costello in the 450-seat theater is like seeing him in your own living room. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why tickets are a little more pricey when Costello plays Thursday, April 8, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $120â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$135. 707.226.7372.

Trucks. Motorcycles. Trees. Old shacks. Potholes. Cattle gates. Charred bushes. Shotgun shells. Corona bottles. Fire roads. Turnouts. Power lines. Geysers Recharge Project stations. Metal conduits. Bud cans. These are all things found on Pine Flat Road. And yet as any avid outdoor enthusiast can attest, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also one of the most beautiful roads in Sonoma County (and where pro cyclists Levi Leipheimer, Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador routinely train). Stretching 12 miles up into the mountains, the narrow, winding road provides breathtaking views of the valley below, along with the up-close beauty of its Mayacamas Mountain Sanctuary. This weekend, photographer Bryant Hichwa leads a digital nature photography workshop, taking advantage of wildflower season in the colorful preserve to instruct photographers of all skill levels. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect springtime field trip on Sunday, April 11. Meet on Pine Flat Road between Red Winery Road and the Sausal Creek Bridge, a quarter mile past the Jimtown Store. 9am. Free. 707.546.7492.

Each day, Rupa Marya clocks in as a doctor of internal medicine at UCSF. And each night, she clocks out as one of the most buzzed-about Bay Area songwriters in the last year, thanks to the multicultural appeal of her band Rupa and the April Fishes. Marya, born in the Bay Area to Indian parents who moved her back to India, then to France, settled again in California as a grownup. Somewhere along the way, she also assimilated the styles of Latin music, Indian ragas, Gypsy jazz, German cabaret and big-band swing that make up the unique April Fishes sound. A favorite of NPR and the BBC, Rupa has graced the stage of many a big-name festival, from European soirees to South by Southwest to Outside Lands in her home base; the cosmopolitan excellence of her latest album, Este Mundo, should guarantee further travels for the globetrotting band. Whatever you do, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss their rare North Bay show on Saturday, April 10, at the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center, 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 8pm. $26. 415.444.8000.

efore too long, Sharon Jones will make a disco record. The evidence is mounting, as each new release from the retro soul singer follows a chronological path of studio production. Her ďŹ rst, Dap Dippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, captured James Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early, raw funk (1963); her second album, Naturally, smoothed out the long vamps and hip-bumps with classic Motown-style songwriting (1965); 100 Days, 100 Nights came during the tumult of a country at war and a dying faith in government (1967), and now, in 2010, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s all over again. Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new album, I Learned the Hard Way, released this week, boasts a full brass orchestra, lush strings and female backup vocals, all drenched in that huge, velvet studio production of the Nixon era. While Jones here is less tortured than on previous outings, her spirit of reclamation is still strong. You, the listener, have done her wrong, and she, Miss Jones, is getting over it in her own damn way. Even on the lighthearted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better Things,â&#x20AC;? Jones sings over party chatter and playful trumpetsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she obviously has better things to do than spend time with you, and better ways to spend her money. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Money,â&#x20AC;? a venomous scorcher, could be our current depressionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response anthem to the Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Jaysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the Love of Money.â&#x20AC;?) Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; backstory is a perfect tale of revival. She recorded a handful of singles in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, disappeared, worked as a prison guard on Rikers Island and was ďŹ nally cajoled back into the studio by Daptone Records executives, who both capture the vintage sound of her albums behind the studio boards and play in her band. Live and onstage, they provide an anchor to Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nonstop passion and patter, accentuating each twist of the waist with authentic ďŹ&#x201A;ourishes from the golden era. The Dap-Kings know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. Sharon Jones knows what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing. If they do, in fact, make a disco record together, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna rule.

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a powerful medium that carries all this information. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a message for people, and people look up to it really strongly. You can see how it affects kids growing up and everything. When you have something that powerful, you should use it in a positive way in reflecting society. And I feel like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing.â&#x20AC;? MC Spends Quality sits in his 10-by-10foot studio in Sebastopol, talking about hip-hop, surrounded by keyboards, laptops, mixers, microphones and records. DJ Deezlee plays snippets of soul and jazz on the turntables in the corner; posters of Stevie Wonder and Bootsy Collins look down from the walls. This weekend, their six-man Sonoma County hip-hop collective Sonicbloom releases Motherlode, their third full-length, and Spends feels the weight that comes with bearing the hip-hop torch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a new era,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a new place. Hip-hopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come a long way.â&#x20AC;? Indeed it has. Sonicbloomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place was established with their excellent 2007 sophomore album Paradigm Lift, a dizzying gnash of lyrical and thematic labyrinths which hit the same part of the cortex as polyrhythmic groups like Freestyle Fellowship and languagetwisting artists like Aesop Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is to say it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;fashionableâ&#x20AC;? at all. Paradigm Lift was more about the brain than the brawn, a

thinking-personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation of what hiphop could and should be. Around that time, I asked the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members to rattle off their top hip-hop albums of all time. The impromptu listmaking session yielded a different side of the group, for entwined with thick linguistic tomes such as Wu Tangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Return to the 36 Chambers and Busdriverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fear of a Black Tangent, group members cited a number of laid-back classics. Digable Planetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Reachinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (A New Refutation of Time and Space). A Tribe Called Questâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythms. E-40â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Hall of Game. As intriguing as it is to discover an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s influences, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear a lot of these records in Sonicbloomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own complex music until I popped in Motherlode, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most decidedly relaxed album. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started getting this collection of songs, and we felt, whoah, this is our best material to date,â&#x20AC;? says Spends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most commercially viable, the most palatable. I think the average person could vibe with a lot of these songs, rather than being some deep stuff or some crazy poetic, too-much-going-on cerebral stuff.â&#x20AC;? Spends doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to throw around words like â&#x20AC;&#x153;formulaicâ&#x20AC;? to describe the new songs, but stresses that Sonicbloom didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change their sound to appease a broader fan base. The older material, while invigorating on record, was just not going over live, and truth be told was tough to replicate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the most performance-friendly,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to be a little more fun with our performance, a little more upbeat.â&#x20AC;? If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a recurring theme to Motherlode, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that music is much more than just sound. Over a tweaked, pitch-shifted treble sample, the album opens with group members almost whispering the mission statement â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speaker Seeds,â&#x20AC;? cleverly likening music to horticulture. To a chopped-cello beat supplied by the Cuf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s N8 the Gr8 on â&#x20AC;&#x153;For You,â&#x20AC;? the group compares music to a romantic interest. And between the delayed guitar arpeggios and distant strings of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sonicbloom Tonic,â&#x20AC;? music is recast as a strengthening elixir for personal achievement. Songs about walking on the beach, smoking weed and chilling out in the summertime enforce the breezy nature of the album. And while on the surface Motherlodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beats are more Labcabincalifornia than Bizzare Ride, repeat listens reveal an indepth quality in the verses and a meticulous arrangement to the production, created and mixed in this very room. Sonicbloomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members are all involved in side projects: both Spends and Penman have solo records in the works, vocalist J.Kendall has a live R&B project and Adomant is working with Rob-I-Root; Spends and fellow Sonicbloom producer Mr. Tay are involved in all of it. Far from splintering the group, the extracurricular work enriches the core of Sonicbloom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we can make a lot more happen as a group if we delegate, and break it up and do other things,â&#x20AC;? says Spends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna all still funnel back to Sonicbloom. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this umbrella thing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this foundation weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built.â&#x20AC;? Sonicbloom celebrate the release of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Motherlodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Rob-I-Root, MamaWisdom, N8 the Gr8, Marv Ellis, Caitlin Cardier, TAIS, Noah D, Fossil, Chango B and J. Riggs on Friday, April 9, at Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.829.7300.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Endgameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Slaughterhouse Space almost as good as going to New York n Samuel Beckettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1957 absurdist play Endgame, there is one character who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand up, one who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit down, and two legless lovers who live in a dumpster. Not exactly a laugh fest. But to Duchamp Winery owner Pat Lenz, the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;endgameâ&#x20AC;? doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean sad times. It could mean new beginnings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Endgame is not always a bleak idea,â&#x20AC;? Lenz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To a lot of people, the world is looking very bleak right now. To other people, there is nothing but opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Lenz discusses Beckett and bleakness in conjunction with the new exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Endgameâ&#x20AC;? set to open April 11 in her Slaughterhouse Space gallery, a true former abattoir set on the Duchamp Winery property and famously used for the past three years by Lenz and a guest curator to showcase provocative contemporary art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Endgameâ&#x20AC;? ups the ante a bit, exhibiting work not only by Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha but also featuring a whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-who roster of midcareer artists, many of whom have been included in recent Whitney Biennial exhibits and all of whom weave a thick gloss of beauty regardless of how dire their subject matter might be. Among work gathered by guest curator Lee Plested are that of late sculptor Leonard Baskin, photographer Anne Collier, â&#x20AC;&#x153;provocateurâ&#x20AC;? painter Andrew Dadson, multimedia artist Tony Oursler, filmmaker and writer Lynn Hershman Leeson (whose installation Olympia: Fictive Projections and the Myth of the Real Woman is shown above), and others. Real women, mythical and otherwise, are on Lenzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind these days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next few shows that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be doing are of women artists,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the year of the woman. I see it so much in the art worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;shows about womenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Zeitgeist, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right moment and perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the feminine sensibility that a lot of men have. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about sharing and community and the broader good.â&#x20AC;? But Lenz is excited about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Endgameâ&#x20AC;? first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I love and what I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough of here,â&#x20AC;? she says of using her space for public exhibits. And, of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all set in a cold cement slaughterhouse. She smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to use the space and to create a new energy for it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Endgameâ&#x20AC;? opens on Sunday, April 11, from 2pm to 5pm. Slaughterhouse Space at Duchamp Winery, 280 Chiquita Road, Healdsburg. Exhibit continues Saturdays through May 8. www.slaughterhousespace.com.

Israeli â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ajamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offers good wishes from a bad neighborhood he Israeli contender for the best foreign film Oscar is framed with a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narrative of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the worst time of my life.â&#x20AC;? The boy who says this is Nasri (Fouad Habash), who sketches the murders taking place around him in a graphic novel. The tale begins with a shooting: Nasriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncle plugged a Bedouin gangster who was demanding protection money. Retaliation was swift: the family business was burned, and the uncle was paralyzed by bullets. Vengeance demands more blood. Nasriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 19-year-old brother, Omar (Shahir Kabaha), is now the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest, hiding until he can beg for help from the Christian Arab fixer Abu Elias (Youssef Sahwani), a plump, unibrowed owner of a fancy restaurant and bar. Abu Elias has a sweet daughter, Hadir (Ranin Karim), who is deeply in love with Omar. The story spins out: Omar and his family get drastically indebted in man-gelt to the Bedouins, who want $57,000 to call off the feud. A young illegal alien comes in to work for Abu Elias, and bad times cascade. A street scuffle between a gentrifying Israeli and the boys in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;hood turns homicidal and brings in the police. Ajami strives to be the bio of an entire bad neighborhood. You feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen something. You visit a place where the violence never stops, where gunmen shoot each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brothers and then lament that fate or honor forced them to do it. Yet like so many of these ghetto movies, Ajami lacks a real core. Of course, such a core would poseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or even answerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the question â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is to be done?â&#x20AC;? Ajami opens on Friday, April 9, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

Author Tim Wise jolts Obama complacency im Wise is the award-wining author of White Like Me: Relations on Race from a Privileged Son, an indepth meditation on the ingrained sense of superiority in the Caucasian race. Rather than take an academic or political stance, Wise employs a series of anecdotes from his own lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unprovoked racist rants, his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house in a segregated neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to paint a picture of a smart, critical white guy coming to terms with and spreading the word about white privilege in America. Now a lecturer and director for the Association for White Anti-Racist Education, Wise has taken up academics by appearing regularly at colleges. With his latest book Between Barack and a Hard Place: Racism and White Denial in the Age of Obama, Wise throws himself into the political arena. We are not in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;post-racialâ&#x20AC;? society simply because we elected a half-black president, Wise argues. Rather, we are now experiencing â&#x20AC;&#x153;racism 2.0,â&#x20AC;? in which society rewards a select few successful minorities for â&#x20AC;&#x153;having â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;transcendedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; their blackness in some way.â&#x20AC;? America is still very much a racist place, as Wise shows in some harrowing statistics. Blacks and Latinos make up 25 percent of drug users in this country but make up 90 percent of those in prison for drug possession. Black women are nine times more likely to be stopped at airports for contraband than white women, although white women are twice as likely to have drugs in their possession. And so on. Wise writes that despite his in-depth speech on race in Philadelphia during the election, Obama has said little about these enduring discrepancies. Anyone who grew up watching The Cosby Show and its subsequent backlash will hear familiar echoes in Wiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitch; namely, that a prominent black man who is articulate, smart and well-mannered may actually be bad for the fight against racism. That theory relies on whites being content about their own systemic privilege. Wise aims to electrocute that complacency when he speaks on Thursday, April 15, at the Cooperage at Sonoma State University. 1801 E. Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. 7:30pm. Free. 707.664.2382.
