THE BULLHORN

The Flag on My Desk 0G2/D725@7A6/E8=<3A

A

COUPLE months ago, I opened an unexpected package from a parishioner serving now in the Persian Gulf. It was an American f lag, folded neatly, an expression of her gratitude. The certificate said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d f lown it in a combat mission over Iraq on Christmas Day, 2009. Before shipping out, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d attended church services here in Santa Cruz for a year and a half. Most Sundays, she and a friend slipped out of Monterey, where they were studying at the Defense Language Institute, rode up the coast and joined us for worship. They were quiet, both of them, but always grateful, intensely grateful. I remember, especially, their smiling widely as they received the bread and cup at communion each week. Like it mattered. A lot. Tucked in the same package was a letter. She reminded me that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d found our church during a difficult time, a tense time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have no idea how much it meant for me to have some place to go to escape the stresses of the military,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With policies like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Ask, Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Tellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in place that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow gays to serve openly, getting through my year and a half tour down there was emotionally difficult.â&#x20AC;? We were her sanctuary, her oasis, and she had taken these gifts to heart. Now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s f lying reconnaissance f lights over Iraq. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking at a folded f lag sitting f lat on my desk. I confess to a certain ambivalence when it comes to the American f lag. Having come of age during the ReaganNorth-Cheney-Bush years, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m deeply skeptical of those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wrapped misguided, bloody policies in the red, white and blue and then called them holy. If the first Gulf War was wrong, the secondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been disastrous in almost every way. Just the same, her f lag touched some part of me that aches for patriotism, that wants desperately to love my country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the thought of the war is too much,â&#x20AC;? she wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of this f lag as supporting bad things. This f lag, in my opinion, is for all of us who have greater dreams, better dreams for our nation and a better future forward.â&#x20AC;? I get it now. If we are to be a nation, if we are to fulfill any kind of destiny, we need this f lag to mean something. It has to mean something like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only as resilient as the most vulnerable among us. Something like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only as strong as our capacity to love and make sacrifices for one another. We need this f lag to mean something more than a Blackberry in every hand and a f lat screen in every living room. Another aviator, the great French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery, once wrote that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking together in the same direction.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy. Looking together in the same direction requires patience, grace, commitment, tenacity, love. But nothing else will do. Nothing else gets us moving toward meaningful health care reform or effective action on global warming. Nothing else fixes our broken school systems or our corporate-sponsored election cycles. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to turn off all those pundits making millions on our misery. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to turn to the f lag again. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for all of usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;gay, straight, black, white, Anglo, Latino, theist, atheistâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to look together in the same direction. Toward the future of America. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a lot of love. The greater dreams always do.

VERY TIME Anne Smith washes her kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grass-stained sports uniforms, her agapanthus gets watered too. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time-saving, water-conserving trick that may one day become commonplace as more and more people discover the benefits of recycling household â&#x20AC;&#x153;graywater.â&#x20AC;? That dirty water laden with detergent, hair and other unmentionable cooties that drain from our washing machines, bathroom sinks and showers classifies as graywater, and it makes up more than half the average householdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water waste. Since 1928, graywater has been flushed into city sewers along with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;blackwaterâ&#x20AC;? that drains from toilets and kitchen sinks, sent to a water treatment center on Bay Street and later expelled

into the ocean via Monterey Bay. But with droughts, heightened awareness of water scarcity and a new emphasis on conservation, the fate of gray wastewater is beginning to change. And Santa Cruz, not surprisingly, is at the forefront of a growing movement to legally divert household graywater away from the sewer system and into the soil, where it can provide moisture for trees and other plants and recharge long-depleted water tables. In January, the California Building Standards Commission adopted a new plumbing code legalizing graywater reuse in residential buildings, a breakthrough that gives residents the go-ahead to rig up their own systems. Proponents say it can save money in the long run, relieve overstressed

septic systems and conserve the life-giving element. Most importantly, perhaps, it can help change the way people think about their water use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of calling it wastewater and shipping it downstream, graywater [reuse] goes with the idea that we all live downstream,â&#x20AC;? says Ken Foster of Terra Nova Ecological Landscaping, a member of the Central Coast Graywater Alliance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In nature there is no such thing as waste. One thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste is anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food. Graywater reuse transforms our concept of waste.â&#x20AC;? Unlike blackwater, graywater is safe and abundant enough to use for irrigating landscape and certain types of garden plants (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not recommended for root crops, for example). ¨ # If done right, the benefits can be manifold.

For the Smith family, a laundry-tolandscape system that directs laundry water around the garden via a pipe connected to their washing machine provided an invaluable solution to the nightmares caused by an overstressed septic system. Diverting thousands of gallons monthly from a saturated leach field in their case has meant a savings of $30,000â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$40,000, the cost of hooking up to the city septic system or installing a new leach field. Thanks to the recent legalization of graywater diversion systems, landscapers and conservationists throughout Santa Cruz are preparing workshops and classes to teach folks how to install laundry-to-landscape systems that are up to code, and the Soquel Creek Water District has recently approved a $75 rebate for laundry-to-landscape systems, effective this July.

Mother Earth Knows Best All laundry-to-landscape systems, whether simple or complex, rely on one fundamental component: the soilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural â&#x20AC;&#x153;food web.â&#x20AC;? The microbes and insects that live in soil act as a biological filtration community, breaking down and using as fuel the microscopic bacteria, potential pathogens, lint and hair that come out in the wash water. Conveniently, these fungal microbes and insects that love to eat nasty things thrive in wood chip mulch, a gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend. Although their powers are great, these microbes are not skilled at breaking down chemicals, so laundry-to-landscape

users should refrain from washing their socks in Clorox and should use only ecologically safe detergents. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your disappointing experiment with all-natural plant-derived antiperspirant deter you; there are many graywaterfriendly detergents on the market with effective cleaning ingredients like papaya enzyme. Anne Smith vouches for them: according to her, they â&#x20AC;&#x153;work great.â&#x20AC;? Graywater has not been granted above-ground rights, and legally it must never see the light of day. At least two inches of wood chip or other mulch is recommended to cover the areas where graywater is expelled into the soil. It is also unsanitary to allow graywater to pool on the groundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface or to run it through a sprinkler system to spray the leaves of your salad greens, since these methods donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow proper filtration. Plus, that would just be nasty. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what graywaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about.

Save Water & Money

The Options The most basic laundry-to-landscape model is cheap and easy. According to Sherry Bryan of EcoAction and the California Graywater Alliance, the cost of a simple system is between $100 and $200, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simple enough that even the mechanically impaired among us could learn how to install it. This system involves a three-way valve that connects an external pipe to the washing machine. The washing machineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pump then propels the water through the pipe, which can be perforated in certain areasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;say, under the rose bushes or apple tree. ¨ $

Due to recent changes in the CA Plumbing Code, homeowners can install a Laundry to Landscape Greywater System, where their laundry waste water will bypass their septic/sewer and go to irrigate their landscape!

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We highly recommend Loves Gardens. We have saved precious money and water with our new system.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ken & Anne Smith Santa Cruz

6=;35/@23<j1:3/<5@33<E/B3@7<5;/167<3 The three-way valve is crucial here. Did your space cadet roommate mistake Comet for your ecofriendly detergent again? Flip the valve from â&#x20AC;&#x153;landscapeâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;sewerâ&#x20AC;? and the roots of your prized fig tree will be spared the caustic chemical burns. The graywater flow should also be redirected to the sewer in times of heavy rain to prevent flooding the garden. According to Bryan, the simplest branch drain laundry-to-landscape system can save almost 4,000 gallons of water a month used for landscape purposes during the irrigation season (May through October). Watering your plants with perfectly good drinking water that has gone through a costly purification process seems crazy when graywater is an optional sourceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;almost as absurd as flushing your waste with the same purified drinking water. More elaborate laundry-to-landscape irrigation systems like the one that keeps Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agapanthus satiated have a materials cost of around $400â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$500. Golden Love of Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gardens is the mastermind behind Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s irrigation system. The garden is set around a bocce ball court, with an expanse of black piping running its length beneath the mulch, and with 28 release valves that can be opened or closed to release the water. The most elaborate systems,

incorporating bathroom sinks and showers into the graywater flow, require a permit and an approved backflow valve to prevent graywater from flowing back into the sink or shower whence it came.

A Case-by-Case Solution Laundry-to-landscape systems are a great start to graywater reuse, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the end-all solution to water scarcity in Santa Cruz. Toby Goddard, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water conservation manager, encourages citizens to explore the options that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liberalized use of graywater may present in their own yards but to remember that it is one of many measures a resident can take to conserve water. Reducing yard size, using low-volume sprinkler nozzles and weather-based irrigation systems and planting more shade trees are other methods Goddard lists to cut down on landscape water usage. After all, as Sherry Bryan of Ecology Action says, the point is to reduce along with reusing and recycling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just like you would reduce your overall energy consumption before installing solar panels,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you should reduce your overall water consumption before pumping all your graywater into your landscape.â&#x20AC;? 0 B]5`SS\OAQS\S¨

>@7<13=4>@7<B Young says his printmaking work has helped his writing by allowing him to think about poems as objects.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;And so, God bless people who write poetry, and letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope they buy poetry books and read poetry and that it brings them some joy, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to do, what it can do.â&#x20AC;?

Freeform In his own writing he has gone from a technically skilled if formally conventional verse to a distinctive style of prose poem that looks simple on the surface but is in fact very tricky and idiosyncratic. In Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands the simplest observations can open into unexpected depths, often revealing a spiritual dimension in the most seemingly ordinary phenomena: kids playing soccer, the cooking of dinner, a mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s song, moonlight through the redwoods, a wild mushroom. Putting his own mark on a form that goes back through Baudelaire in the 19th century all the way to the ancient Chinese masters he reveres, Young has earned a lot of respect in the literary world and a certain amount of controversy as well for trafficking in an oxymoron: prose poetry. In the prose poem, absent the formal framework of lined verse, Young says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to be much more subtleâ&#x20AC;? to create the kinds of linguistic tension and compression characteristic of poetry, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more difficult to achieve.â&#x20AC;? But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the things he likes about the form. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something charming about writing poetry that some people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think are poems,â&#x20AC;? he adds, laughing. Asked about the slim material rewards of poetry, he replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an artist, your reward is just being able to do the work.â&#x20AC;? And yet paradoxically, at this peak of his artistic accomplishment, he has less

and less time for writing amid his other duties. He laughs this off, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like I had my retirement in the first half of my life, and now when everyone else is retiring Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But also at this age if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write every day, or even every month, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m depriving the world of some aspect of my genius. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as important to me right now as teaching kids and doing these civic and educational things. I get a lot of pleasure out of it, and after working at this for 40 years I know a lot and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind giving it back.â&#x20AC;? Printing, says Young, has been essential to his development as a poet: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I have written anything of value, a lot of it is because I became a printer. It allowed me to think about poems as objects, as things, and encouraged me to think of poems as something made, where you would set it in type and feel it in your hands; and the fact that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical, just the fact that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using your body, is a real corrective to staying in your head.â&#x20AC;? He told me that when he started out he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to expect. I just wanted to see where what I wanted to do would lead me, and 30 years ago if someone had said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the poet laureate of Santa Cruz County,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would have laughed.â&#x20AC;? GARY YOUNG launches his term as poet laureate with a reading Sunday, April 18, at 6pm at Kuumbwa Jazz Center, 320 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. He will be joined by Ellen Bass, Robert Sward and Stephen Kessler for brief readings and a panel discussion about poetry and community. Music provided by ZunZun. Free. (831.427.2227)

IT STARTS in early January. The Internet rumor mill that never stopped completely in the previous nine months goes from steady thump to a full-on hum. Who will get the nod for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio? Will it be a headliner dream like â&#x20AC;&#x2122;04 with the Pixies, the Cure and Radiohead? Will the undercard dazzle as in 2008 with Aphex Twin, Animal Collective and Portishead? What bewildering pop act will get added at the last minute? Will Sean Penn be there?

0S\STWbG]UO1ZOaaT]` 6OWbWO\?cOYSDWQbW[a BZaVc^ZK^oojh^aZVYhV bZY^iVi^kZ$gZhidgVi^kZhZhh^dc! VcYGnVcHVgcViVgdegdk^YZh i]Zhddi]^c\hdjcYd[&%% h^c\^c\Wdlah#6aaegdXZZYh\d id=VW^iVi[dg=jbVc^in#HVi! 6eg&,!(")/(%eb#9dcVi^dc# HVciV8gjoNd\V!)%'>c\Vaah Hi!HVciV8gjo!-(&#'',#'&*+#

And just when the rumors and hearsay reach a deafening crescendo, early February comes and the lineup drops. This year Jay-Z, Muse and the Gorillaz claim the top spots. From then until the first act takes the stage in mid-April, the web buzzes with cheers, jeers and all manner of unsolicited hipster analysis on whether the three-day, 140-plus-act festival is worth the $300 price tag. So, with that in mind, the verdict for 2010 from this five-year Coachella veteran and shameless fanboy is a resounding â&#x20AC;&#x153;hell, yes.â&#x20AC;?

Never has a more rock-solid collection of musical talent been goaded to a single desert locale. Aside from the aforementioned hip-hop and space rock headliners, the big buzz belongs to Radiohead frontman Thom Yorkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side project act Atoms for Peace and the reunion of indie cult masters Pavement. MGMT, Grizzly Bear and the XX will win over the indie rock crowd, while Devo qualifies as this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WTF band. Them Crooked Vultures, featuring Dave Grohl and no less than Zeppelin bass god John Paul Jones, will abuse any amplifiers left intact from Coheed and Cambriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set. And the electronica bill has never been stronger with Flying Lotus, Major Lazer, LCD Soundsystem and TiĂŤsto on the ones and twos. (Curtis Cartier)

Movie reviews by Traci Hukill, Steve Palopoli, Mel Valentin and Richard von Busack

Ethan Edwards ( John Wayne) turns up at his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in northern Texas. Shortly afterward, the Comanches pay a visit. Edwards and a Texas ranger (Ward Bond) and a few other men lead a posse to find the survivors. Crude in moments, this film is easily John Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest work: a Western not just for the devotees but for people who either donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like them or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know them. Wayne lends his electric charisma to one of his most formidable antiheroes, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most important acting performances ever in a movie. Also note Stanford grad Hank

Wordenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s splendid counterpointing to Wayne; Worden takes the Walter Brennan part as the cracked cowpoke Mose. His gleeful pantomiming of how Edward shot out the eyes of a corpse is just one moment of ambiguity in this tale of mad pursuit. (Plays Sat-Sun at 11am at Aptos.) (RvB)

 j"!

A/<B/1@CH1=; april 14-21, 2010 47:; 

is more of a fashion show and a forced march. Screenwriter Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast) is sensibly trying to do a Wicked on the famous tale, complete with rivalry between witchy queens: the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the ghostly yet sugary White Queen (Anne Hathaway). The now 19-year-old Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is meant to quest for good in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Underland,â&#x20AC;? a place she misremembered as Wonderland. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a helpless Burton fan, but the colors here arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t state of the art, and compared to Coralineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solitude and thoughtfulness the finale turns out to be familiar dragon slaying; ultimately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just Alice who has been here before. (RvB) /D/B/@ (PG-13; 162 min.) A victory for people who insist that science fiction has to be dumb. In the future, Earthling mercenaries are shipped to the planet Pandora, where 9-foottall, blue-skinned noble savages called Naâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;vi live in a phosphorescent forest full of saurian beasts. Jake (Sam Worthington) is the paraplegic brother of a dead soldier hooked up to a Naâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;vi shell; the program is under the direction of a chainsmoking biologist (Sigourney Weaver). While it is a maxim of screenwriting that the plot ought to be the longest distance between two points, James Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrible script for this putative end-of-thedecade experience really overworks the principle. The politics play it both ways; letting us swoon over the military hardware and still lament for the plundered forests. After an hour, the drugs wear off, and the appeal of synthespianism starts to drag; motion capture isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly motion release (compare the synthetic Weaver to the real thing), and the cobbled-together story

of eco-rebellion isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be eclipsed by the visuals. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see it anyway, see it in 3-D. (RvB) 0=C<BG6C<B3@

(PG-13; 111 min.) Jennifer Aniston is a reporter working undercover and Gerard Butler her bountyhunting ex in this romantic comedy directed by Andy Tennant (Hitch, Sweet Home Alabama). Bit parts by Jason Sudeikis and Jeff Garlin sweeten the pot. (TH) 1:/A6=4B63 B7B/<A (PG-13;

110 min.) Sam Worthingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Perseus saves Argos from a large and angry Kraken. A synthespian made completely out of Black Angus beef, Sam Worthington demonstrates his ability to suck every touch of humor in a movie, so that no matter how ridiculous things get no one laughs during his scenes. He passed on the risible coiffures endemic in director Louis Leterrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision of the ancient world, the land of a thousand frightwigs. Hairiest of them all is Liam Neesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zeus, in shiny tinfoil armor last seen in Excaliburâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;glittering 3-D eyesore like a f licker postcard. This glowing apparition stares down his evil brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes): nothing says â&#x20AC;&#x153;tensionâ&#x20AC;? like two furry, heavily mascaraed men giving each other the eye. Your kid will agree that any movie with Medusa in it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a total loss. Her backstory is told by Perseusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guardian angel Io (Gemma Arterton); Arterton provides not only the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too-rare girly-action, but Clashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one nod to the pathos of Ovid. Some respite by Mads Mikkelsen and Jason Flemyng. Bargainmatinee filler, heavily Cecil B. Demillized to make it all about the chastisement of a loving God on his impious people. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen more out of control paganism at a Unitarian potluck. (RvB)

2/B3<756B (PG-

13; 88 min.) Tina Fey fans, calm yourselves. The queen of quirk teams up with Steve Carrell in a story about a couple trying to survive a date night gone horribly wrong. 27/@G=4/E7;>G 972 (PG; 120 min.) A

live-action adaptation of the graphic novel by Jeff Kinney about life in middle school. Stars Zachary Gordon. B6356=ABE@7B3@

(PG-13; 136 min.) Roman Polanskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good-looking thriller follows a British journalist (Ewan McGregor) hired to clean up the memoirs of a British prime minister (Pierce Brosnan) whose previous ghost writer has just turned up dead. With Kim Cattrall as the PMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curvaceous chief of staff and Olivia Williams as his intellectual wife. (CW)

(Unrated; 158 min.) Stieg Larssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book is the hottest thing going in mysteries right now, and thankfully, director Niels Arden Oplev and screenwriters Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg recognized that more important than any of the hype swirling around the book is the protagonist at its center, Lisbeth Salander. She is the girl with the dragon tattoo, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maybe the best fictional character to come around yet this century. Swedish actress Noomi Rapace is absolutely incredible in her ability to bring Lisbeth to life. She is a force of nature, pure and simple. Lisbeth is hired to dig up dirt on Mikael (Michael Nyqvist) but ends up helping him investigate the disappearance many years ago of Harriet, heiress to a creepy, feuding family

of millionaires. Though it may use the U.S. title, the movie doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy away from the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unrelenting critique of the violence that society allows men to perpetuate against women, and though the scenes with certain unsavory characters may have been cut down in number, they are still surprisingly graphic. Luckily, Lisbeth is womankindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate revenge fantasy come trueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sooner or later, her boots are gonna walk all over absolutely everyone. (SP) 5@33<03@5 (R; 107 min.) Writer/director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) is back with another character study. A dysfunctional, emotionally unbalanced fortysomething in full-on midlife crisis, Greenberg (Ben Stiller), to be blunt, is an asshole. He makes the nearly two hours we spend with him an unpleasant, disquieting experience, but Baumbach wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it any other way. Roger Greenberg, a

one-time musician down on his luck, arrives in Los Angeles from New York City after a six-week stay in a mental institution. He plans to house-sit for his more successful brother and his wife. He strikes up a halting, hesitant relationship with his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal assistant, Florence Marr (Greta Gerwig). (MV) 6=BBC0B7;3 ;/167<3 (R; 100

min.) Sublime, but not dainty. Due to a wormhole, observed by a hot tub repairman or a Time Lord or something (Chevy Chase), three idiots (Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and the ever soulful John Cusack) are transported back to their happier past at a ski resort in 1986. Accidentally transported with them is 24-year-old Jacob (the hilarious Clark Duke), a depressed middle-aged-man-intraining whose life may depend on the events of the night to come. Certainly the funniest and grimiest film since The Hangover, but Hot Tub Time Machineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

editing is ruthless, almost to the point of resembling a comingattractions reel. Rather than looking like a frenzied mess, however, it is more like there was some brilliant four-hour version that was cut down to a ragged but right shape. Director Steve Pink scripted High Fidelity; Cusack and Corddry do things here that you will still be laughing about 10 years from now: examples being Corddryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violent unplugging of himself from a hospital bed or Cusackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monologue about the day life went wrong for him, a tale as funny as the story in Gremlins about the Santa who ruined Christmas. (RvB) B63A31@3B=4 93::A (Unrated;

80 min.) Short but ravishing Irish cartoon about their national treasure, the Book of Kells, an 1800year-old illuminated manuscript. Young Brendan (voiced by Evan McGuire) is a monk at his uncleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abbey at Kells in ninthcentury Meath. The merciless Viking raiders

approach, but Brendan is more interested in the arrival of a fellow artist to the monastery: the aged brother Aidan (Mick Lally), who carries with him the last treasure from his island of Iona: the book which later will be known as the Book of Kells. When Aidan sends the boy out into the wolf-haunted forest to seek pigments, the boy encounters a fairy named Aisling (Christen Mooney). Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stressed here is art as the hope of civilization, representing something more than life.The love of nature also radiates from this movie; directors Tomm Moore, Nora Twomey and the rest of the artists at Cartoon Saloon have indeed made something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful yet never airy-fairy. (RvB) D7<13@3 (Unrated; 136 min.) When you get into bed with a fascist, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if he steals all the covers. Director Marco Bellocchio charts the story of Ida Dalser (the lovely, monotonous Giovanna

Mezzogiorno), a beautician who sacrificed everything for Mussolini (Filippo Timi). It is thought that Dalser married Il Duce, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evidence he acknowledged their child. After World War I, the luckless Dalser becomes a state secret, interned at a series of mental hospitals. And her son, also named Benito, is spirited away to captivity at a grim boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school. Ida can only watch Il Duce in newsreels. Was Mussolini, then, cinema itself ? A seductive deception, no deeper than a screen? Turbulent music heightens the operatic side of the story: Carlo Crivelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s score sounds like Philip Glass and Bernard Herrmann having a fistfight while going over a waterfall. For most of the film, Ida does two things. She writes letters and she watches movies. Regrettably, the retroness of this drama signals an Italian cinema that, like Ida, looks backward instead of forward. (RvB)

Astrology Free Will

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of April 14 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): Photons work hard to get from the heart of the sun to the surface. They can take up to 160,000 years to complete the 400,000plus-mile journey. And yet once Earth-bound photons get topside, they travel the 93-million-mile distance to our planet in just over eight minutes. I foresee a metaphorically similar situation unfolding in your life in the coming weeks. A development that has been a long time in the making will accelerate tremendously in its last phase of ripening. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): Taurus genius Irving Berlin (1888â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1989) has been called the greatest songwriter who ever lived. Among his 1,500 compositions were iconic tunes like â&#x20AC;&#x153;God Bless Americaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Christmas,â&#x20AC;? as well as scores for 18 Hollywood movies and 19 Broadway shows. And yet he never learned to read or write music. Was he embarrassed about his handicap? Not at all. He even bragged about it. He felt that having such a minimal grasp of the conventions of songwriting was an advantage, giving him the freedom to be extraordinarily original. Is there any way in which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like Irving Berlin, Taurus? Do you have a seeming limitation that is actually an aid to your creativity and uniqueness? Celebrate it this week.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every changed circumstance contains opportunities, which accrue to the first people to recognize them,â&#x20AC;? wrote poet Charles Potts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since circumstances are in constant flux, there is a steady stream of opportunities. Learn to spot them and make them your own.â&#x20AC;? I offer you this advice, Gemini, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon be in a prime position to derive great benefit from it. If you tweak your attitude just rightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;aligning your novelty receptors to be on high alertâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the clattering commotion of metamorphosis thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headed your way will bring with it a bustling welter of unforeseen openings. 1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): First the negatives: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a martyr to what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your success oppress you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become a slave to the useful role youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve earned. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect your own needs as you serve the needs of those who admire you for what you give. Now letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s try a more positive way to frame the challenges ahead of you: Keep questioning whether the fruits of your victories are still enjoyable and fulfilling to you. Make sure the triumphs of the past donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in the way of the potential triumphs of the future. Find out how your success may need to evolve. Push beyond whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good and head in the direction of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.

:3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): My rage against the machine began early. I joined my first protest march at age 15, led a boycott at 17, and was tear-gassed by cops at a demonstration when I was 18. In the intervening years, my anger at injustice has broadened and deepened. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lent my rebel yells to hundreds of righteous causes. But in 2006, I decided to shift my approach. Instead of fighting every single abuse that incited my ire, I chose three to concentrate on: the obscene militarism of the American government, the extreme financial disparities between the rich and poor, and the environmental degradations caused by corporations and corporate culture. Since then, my crusading energy has been more focused and effective, and my general mood has brightened. I recommend you consider a similar change, Leo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time for you to give more of your passion to fewer causes.

D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): Do you remember the monster that sometimes lived under your bed when you were a kid? Recently it found its way back to you, and has been spending time in your closet. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as frightening as it used to be, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not alarmed by its return. In fact, I think it has an important message for you that would be valuable to discover. I encourage you to invite it out for a conversation. As you might suspect, as soon as it delivers its crazy wisdom, it will leave you in peace. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): Present the following dare to a person or persons with whom you would like to go deeper: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You think you know me, but you really know just a tantalizing fraction. Would you like to experience the rest of the story?â&#x20AC;? And if anyone expresses interest, take him or her on a magical tour they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget. Reveal the sides of you that are too mysteriously interesting to show the general public, or too intimate to reveal to anyone you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust, or so

potent they might intimidate those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of self-possession.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): In North America, California Condors are the biggest flying birds that live on land. Their wingspans are up to ten feet. Once sacred to certain Native Americans, these members of the vulture family can live for 60 years and soar as high as 15,000 feet. But they came close to extinction in the 20th century, mostly because of human activity. In 1987, conservationists intervened. In the hope of replenishing the population in captivity, they captured every last one of the 22 remaining wild condors. Painstaking efforts gradually yielded results, and today there are 348 birds, including 187 in the wild. I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because I believe now is an excellent time to begin a project to save your own metaphorical version of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;endangered species.â&#x20AC;? A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): According to Us Weekly, baseball star Alex Rodriguez owns two paintings of himself in which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portrayed as halfman, half-horse. This is an excellent time for you to be inspired by his example. Gazing at a picture of a mythical centaur who looks like you would speak to your subconscious mind in just the right way. Bypassing your rational ego, that stirring icon would animate and cultivate the wise animal in you. It would stimulate the sweet spot where your physical vitality overlaps your visionary intelligence. Do you know anyone who could Photoshop this powerful image for you? 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my startling prediction: More Capricorn spiritual seekers will become enlightened in the next five weeks than in any comparable period of history. Hell, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be so much infinity mixed with eternity available for your tribe that even a lot of you nonseekers could get a lightning bolt of illumination or two. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that you have to accept the uplifting revelations, or even tune in to them, for that matter. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer to ignore the sacred hubbub and go about your practical business without having to hassle with the consequences of a divine download, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine.

/?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): Can you imagine what it would be like to venture into the opposite of the Bermuda Triangle? You know, a zone where wonderfully odd things occur rather than bad strange things? I think that such a place exists, and I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon find it. The luck that unfolds for you will be a blend of dumb and brilliant. The discoveries you make may be useless on the outside but valuable on the inside. Lost keys may reappear and missing links will materialize out of nowhere. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the piece de resistance: An apparent memory of the future could provide a secret passageway to a previously hidden enclave that contains â&#x20AC;&#x153;magic garbage.â&#x20AC;? >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): In honor of the new identity youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re evolving into, I hereby give you the nickname of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miracle Player,â&#x20AC;? or elseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if you like one of these betterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sleek Catâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Giant Stepâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fate Whisperer.â&#x20AC;? You may hereafter also use any of the following titles to refer to yourself: â&#x20AC;&#x153;CEO of My Own Lifeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Self-Teacher of Jubilance and Serenityâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fertile Blur of Supple Strength.â&#x20AC;? Feel free, as well, to anoint your head with pure organic virgin olive oil, fashion a crown for yourself out of roses and shredded masks, and come up with a wordless sound that is a secret sign youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give to yourself whenever you need to remember the marvelous creature you are on your way to becoming.
