Sometimes speaking from the heart is the strongest thing you can do By Magick

have been an activist most of my life, and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burned out yet. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my secret? I trust in life, answer calls to action and keep my sense of humor. I relish the messy process called democracy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never over and life is worth it, so I do what I can. On April 22, I attended a meeting in Rohnert Park concerning a proposal by WalMart to add a grocery outlet. The city staff played its usual role of supporting corporate proposals. The consultant slipped, and to the dismay of the Wal-Mart people, said the local grocery store, Pacific Market, would be put out of business. The environmental impact report (EIR) stated that this could snowball into some ugly urban decay. Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market might go down as well, causing serious unemployment and loss of support for community activities. The halls were packed, and the hearing lasted from 7pm until after 11pm. There were basically two camps. Wal-Mart employees were there to sing the praises of Wal-Mart, and there was a smattering of shoppers expressing their love of cheap prices. Everyone else was there to protest. Every activist knows that Wal-Mart probably ranks No. 1 in the world for environmental degradation, employee abuse and exploitation of foreign labor, including children. I also knew that Wal-Mart was facing the biggest class action suit in U.S. history because of its systematic discrimination against women. Yet sitting behind me was a row of female Wal-Mart employees whose jobs were not on the line. I wondered how Wal-Mart propaganda had convinced them that somehow they were threatened if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come. One elderly gentleman related how towns in the South were completely devastated by Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predatory practices. A planner explained that Wal-Mart comes into small towns and undercuts prices until its competitors fail. As I sat there scribbling notes, my stomach churned, my brain ached; it was painful to see a community so divided. I searched for the words that might move the four councilmen to act from integrity. Minutes before it was my turn to speak, I closed my eyes and let go. The spirit of community in that moment had entered me, and I knew that many of my â&#x20AC;&#x153;reasonsâ&#x20AC;? for

stopping this project would have to fall by the wayside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next speaker is Magick,â&#x20AC;? intoned the chairman with a grin. I walked to the podium. I dove in by stating that I knew from experience that there must be findings based on unmitigatable impacts that are too great to allow certification of the EIR. I elaborated a bit, but the clock was ticking on my three minutes, and I knew that I needed to strike a deeper chord. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What has happened to us as a nation and as a community when we do not care that our neighbors will lose their jobs? What has happened to us when we turn away from the reality that cheap prices are the result of 10-year-old girls working for slave wages seven days a week in China?â&#x20AC;? I asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we only care about our own jobs, our own children? Have we become merely a nation of consumers? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rational reasons to refuse to certify this EIR and defeat this project are there, but I ask you when you speak, to please speak from the heart for this community.â&#x20AC;? The bell rang exactly as I uttered my last words and I sat down holding to the intention I had set in solidarity with all the articulate speakers opposing this plan. The first commissionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening words were, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am heartened by the outpouring of feelings coming from the crowd tonight.â&#x20AC;? My eyes widened and I knew, because he spoke of the heart, that the decision would go in favor of this little town. The slick tricks of corporate PR people had failed to run roughshod over the soul of this community. One after another the commissioners voiced their concern about lost jobs and urban decay. Even the one commissioner who mistakenly stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell WalMart what to do,â&#x20AC;? voted with the others in a stunning 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 victory! After, a few of us went to the local pub to raise our glasses in celebration. It is not over, Wal-Mart is appealing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK. There will be another community ritual of democracy to attend. Magick is a local activist, poet and tarot counselor and teacher. She does readings at the Infusions Teahouse in Sebastopol.

?A>6D6DAD Imagine my surprise, after reading Alastair Blandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article on energy gels for athletes (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ew, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gu,â&#x20AC;? May 12), when I came to the paragraph where the author relays his own experience riding in long cycling events. The quizzical moment was not because he had indeed thrown a leg over a bike in the first placeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but more that he wrote an entire piece accusing other cyclists who eat something other than â&#x20AC;&#x153;real foodâ&#x20AC;? of littering. Not to mention the assumptions regarding energy gel nutrition without having tried them! In the great word of Homer Simpson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oh!â&#x20AC;? It is clear the Alastair is simply bereft of the facts in most areas. Here are some: Energy gels are highly absorbable, fast-acting energy meals. In races and rides, 95 percent of cyclists store the spent wrappers in their pockets and do not throw them away. Energy gels are not meant to replace â&#x20AC;&#x153;real foodâ&#x20AC;? long-term, but to get you calories fast and efficientlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;try eating a meatball

sandwich when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going full throttle. Your body can absorb approximately 300 to 400 calories per hour, yet it can burn over 1,000 calories per hourâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; thus the need for fast-acting energy, and lots of it. Most cyclists, racers and triathletes do eat something other than gels during a longer event. Google â&#x20AC;&#x153;ABC Trash Ridesâ&#x20AC;? and take a look at your local cyclists and racers who are tackling our countryroad trash problems out of their own pockets and of their own time.

Our fair and estimable wine writer James Knight enjoys corresponding with his editor, exchanging the odd bon mots and delicate missives of love. Regarding my edit of his Hartford Family Winery review (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swirl,â&#x20AC;? May 12), in which his original text was somehowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; mysteries aboundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;changed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;leatherâ&#x20AC;? rather than his intended â&#x20AC;&#x153;butter,â&#x20AC;? he drubs: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good God! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chardonnay! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butter and oak, buttered toast, popcorn, lumber and dairy, sawmill and cream puff, cow and Quercus! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Leather and oakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sounds like some kind of arboreal sub-dom kink that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hear about.â&#x20AC;? Merely saying Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry may not be butter enough, but his metaphor does bring up some interesting Ren Faire memories . . . Yet the apologies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there! On p38 of last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calendar, the InDIYpendent Culture Faire in Napa was mysteriously assigned to a location at JV Wine & Spirits, obviously a very independent decision. Apologies to those who might have trekked to the wrong locale, and to the good, if somewhat mystified, folks at JV.

=^cWX]V8b8[[d\X]PcTS

The discovery phase of the Greene v. Sonoma County case raises more questions than it answers By Kylie Mendonca

5

ew people took notice last August when Clay Greene and Jannette Biggerstaff filed a claim against the county of Sonoma and a handful of Sonoma County business, alleging elder abuse, sexual discrimination and what amounts to theft of personal property. But the whole country has turned its attention to Sonoma County since their case was taken up by the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR). News of the alleged abuses went viral in April with Sonoma County popping up in national headlines. Would-be visitors threatened to boycott, as though the liberal county were Arizona, and promised to pour local wines down the drain rather than taste the bitter fruit of Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oppressive soil.

Specifically, the complaint alleges that county officials refused to recognize the 25-year relationship that Clay Greene and his late lover Harold Scull shared, that the couple were separated by force during the three months leading up to Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2008 death; that their belongings were auctioned off without consent; and that Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who at age 89 may have suffered from dementiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;died alone while his longtime partner was imprisoned in a nursing home. The details in the complaint are, indeed, horrifying for the individual abuses alleged as well as the implied institutional homophobia. But there is a problem: a complaint is simply not fact. It has not been litigated and, frankly, anyone with enough cash and brain power to file one at the local courthouse

can claim anything in a complaint. Not surprisingly, lawyers for the defendants, including Santa Rosa attorney Gregory Spaulding, say there are factual errors in the complaint. In fact, many of the details of the case are being hotly contested. If accounts in the complaint were not scary enough, all of the alleged abuses apparently took place against the expressed wishes of the couple, who had taken legal steps to ensure themselves the same end-of-life rights that married heterosexual couples receive, such as hospital visits and medical decision-making. The men also named each other beneficiaries in their respective wills, which is all a same-sex couple could really do to protect themselves before the advent of domestic partnerships, and more recently, samesex marriage. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth noting that Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will is being carried out according to his wishes. % -

The NCLR is pushing this case as a prime example of separate systems not being equal, asserting that Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last three months of life would have been different if he were in a hetero relationship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The county] treated them as if their relationship had no significance,â&#x20AC;? charges NCLR attorney Shannon Minter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They treated them like roommates. Part of this is about discrimination, but part of this also has to do with the vulnerabilities particular to this community.â&#x20AC;? Lawyers for the NCLR are staying close to a narrative that says Greene and Scull were railroaded by a careless system and a malicious group of county employees. For its part, the defense is refusing to confirm or deny details that have already been in the press. Spaulding, for example, is unyielding in his claim that Scull was able to make decisions about his own health, but would not go on the record about whether or not Scull was suffering from dementia, citing a reluctance to violate Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to medical privacy. Currently, the case is in the discovery phase, where both sides collect the information that will be presented in court this summer, but until the case goes before a jury, most of that information is not being released to the public. The court date is set for July 16, just a month to the day after closing arguments are expected in the June 16 federal trial over Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage that California voters passed in 2008. The NCLR is a not a new group; the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name may seem dated, but the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is current. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; the LGBTQ communityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are seen as having a common interest promoting gender equality, and so the gay rights movement, the lesbian rights movement, have morphed into a single movement to promote LGBTQ rights. One emerging concern of the community is how to care for LGBTQ elders, a group that NCLR lawyer Minter says has particular vulnerabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[LGBTQ] elders are more likely to be estranged from their families and other people in the community where they live,â&#x20AC;? Minter says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re less likely to have children.â&#x20AC;? They are also more likely to be in poverty as they age, which exacerbates isolation, and unlike married couples, LGBTQ elders are not eligible for the social security survivor benefits or pensions that their partners may have had. They are also less likely to be in touch with groups like NCLR. Because of their isolation, many LGBTQ elders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about domestic partnership or what Prop. 8 is. Harold Scull and Clay Greene came of age before the Stonewall riots, before there were support groups and before the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;hate crimeâ&#x20AC;? existed. When Scull and Greene were young men, homosexuals were being gassed along with Jews and the Roma. Indeed, the big question to be answered in Greene v. Sonoma County is whether Greene and Scull were discriminated against or whether social factors related to the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual orientation aggravated a bad situation. The problem is that this case is murky. Both sides agree that Harold Scull was admitted to the hospital in May 2008 after he suffered an injury at the western Sonoma

County home he shared with Clay Greene. The defenseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the event is that then-76-year-old Greene struck Scull and caused him to fall; the complaint asserts that Scull just fellâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an accident. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the central facts in the case that really does determine whether the county acted appropriately toward the elderly men.

The big question to be answered in Greene v. Sonoma County is whether Greene and Scull were discriminated against or whether social factors related to the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual orientation aggravated a bad situation. The other key piece of the puzzle is the question of Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dementia. The county claims Scull was mentally competent when he gave control of his finances to the county and made allegations of domestic abuse, but Greene and Biggerstaff think otherwise. In a case that has already been speculated to death, both among people eager to defend same sex couples and those eager to discredit them, there is much that still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add up. Another important distinction between the defense and plaintiff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of events is whether the couple were kept physically apart, unable to even speak to one another. The defense claims that a meeting took place between Scull and Greene in June 2008, two months before Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer, Gregory Spaulding, filed a motion in April this year, claiming that the men met and took the things they wanted before the rest of their property was auctioned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both gentlemen were there,â&#x20AC;? Spaulding says of the meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and given an opportunity to collect their things.â&#x20AC;? Spaulding says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how long the meeting lasted, but avers that both men took things from the house before the auction. Whether the county grossly mishandled Greene and Scullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation will be determined in court, but perhaps the bigger issue has to do with the social commitment we have to our elders of all sexual orientation. Minter suggests that perhaps a combination of mismanagement by the county, as well as lack of social support for the men, is what led to this situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want justice for Harold and Clay,â&#x20AC;? Minter says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shameful that any elderly person in our society should be treated this way.â&#x20AC;?

2aTPcXeT2^\\^]b :TaUdUU[T Who owns what once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mashed up online?

By Daedalus Howell

>

ften when journalists go online, they merely turn their beats into blogs and continue churning the chum of bleeding leads. But for journalist Ben Huh, a different path beckoned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was this idea,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;about a cat website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a job I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like and I wanted to leave. I might as well go jump in with the sharks,â&#x20AC;? continues Huh, the 32-year-old founder of the Cheezburger Network, a blog-based enterprise perhaps best known for propagating the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lolcatâ&#x20AC;? phenomenon, which usually manifests as a photo of a feline humorously captioned with intentionally poor grammar (the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lolâ&#x20AC;? prefix is an net-borne acronym for â&#x20AC;&#x153;laugh out loudâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;lots of laughsâ&#x20AC;?). Huh formally launched I Can Has Cheezburger, a site dedicated to lolcats that he acquired from its founderblogger Eric Nakagawa in 2007 after a brief collaboration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I figured that if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do well, there goes my career, and if I do well, there goes my career,â&#x20AC;? Huh said during the Web 2.0 Conference, co-presented by Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly Media. At any given point, Huh operates over 40 sites, each representing a crash course in internet memetics and user-generated content. The sites receive over 19,000 submissions a day, which Huh and his staff of 42 individually comb for appropriateness and to spot trends. Throughout, Huh says he asks himself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is this a thing? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no better a judge of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to work versus anyone else in the world. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made it into a numbers game,â&#x20AC;? Huh says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We make it as organic as possible. If users send in content that we see in large volume, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll attack those first.â&#x20AC;? Given the low cost of launching a site, Huh experiments with combinations of content and community until he has a hit. Some sites last only weeks, while others flourish and draw millions of eyeballs a day, which he monetizes through ad sales and by hawking related merchandise. And like porn sites, each has its own community of fetishists ready to share and revel within their particular niche. Take graphs, for example. Graph Jam, one of Huhâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more esoteric sites, is devoted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;life and pop culture graphed for your inner geekâ&#x20AC;? and consists of an ever-growing collection of pie-charts, bar graphs and sundry other illustrations positioned as observational

humor. A recent submission graphed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Motivation to Paddle Faster in a Canoe,â&#x20AC;? with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canoe rental time is almost upâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;To keep in control while negotiating rapidsâ&#x20AC;? represented as small slivers in a pie otherwise dominated by â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hear banjoes.â&#x20AC;? Deliverance meets PowerPointâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s precisely the kind of cross-pitch that would have one thrown off a Hollywood lot thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the life blood of Huhâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s empire. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an indication that the way we both consume culture and create culture is changing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Mulligan stew atop the hearth of the creative commons, but the question looms: Who owns it? The answer is fraught with implications for content creators of every stripe, particularly when they intersect in the cluttered byway of internet culture and traditional media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a recent example of a photo of a monkey thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frowning while riding on top of a kid who is swimming, and it looks like the monkey is drowning the kid. So one of our community members captioned it with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Assassin Monkey Is Not Pleased with Its Dayjob.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This photo went around the internet for a long time, and a major comics house picked up the photo and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to build a character out of this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, that was created by one of our community members, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re claiming it as their own,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Huh says. What bristles Huh and others in his position is the lack of reciprocity between traditional media enterprisesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;those who leverage their copyrights and trademarksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the world of user-generated content. If the community member in question posted images from the comic that poached Assassin Monkey, he would quickly be served with a cease and desist order, suggests Huh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very unfair relationship,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drawing inspiration from a community of people who are putting it out there in the public domain. Therefore, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some obligation for them to put it back into the public domain.â&#x20AC;? The graph depicting the outcome has yet to be submitted, but one can assume it will make one laughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or maybe cry.

The way that we both consume culture and create culture is changing.

<hbcTah 3TR^]bcadRcTS The ongoing adventures of Sally Smart, cub reporter

By Juliane Poirier

Âş

F

here is the house that was deconstructed? And are the owners at home?â&#x20AC;? Sally Smart, cub reporter, had pulled her car over to talk legally on her cell phone. The traffic on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard was thick with after-school rides; the Marin moms were out in force. In the shade on Butterfield Road, Sally watched a few plaid-skirted girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;San Domenico studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;stroll by with curious looks at her car, now splattered with bird droppings. She should have picked a different place to park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry,â&#x20AC;? answered the voice of the public relations flak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the owners of the home do not wish to speak with you or to be identified in your article.â&#x20AC;? Sally felt the tense rush of adrenalin that accompanies major setbacks on deadline day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m practically in Ross right now,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I at least stop by the house and get some pictures?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, no,â&#x20AC;? said the voice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the place. It would be a violation of their privacy.â&#x20AC;? Sally got off the call and threw the phone on the passenger seat. So why am I here? Why am I even writing an article about them? Deconstruction. She had been sent to write about it. All sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d discovered was that the house, owned by who knows who, was hidden somewhere in one of the wealthiest communities in Marin, the wealthiest per capita county in California, itself the richest state in the richest nation in the world. Sally put the car in gear and steered toward Fairfax, where her car would not be conspicuous and where she could hopefully find her construction expert, Rob the Builder. He would know what to do. Fifteen minutes and one call later, Sally watched Rob the Builder walk into the Sleeping Lady Cafe, order a beer and hold out his iPhone saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;See those French doors? Those are double-paned, pure oak. Solid brass handles.â&#x20AC;? Sally nodded, not seeing anything more than a fuzzy snapshot of some workers carrying pieces of a house around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is

top-quality stuff,â&#x20AC;? said Rob the Builder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be used again in a home built by Habitat for Humanity or by a similar organization called Corazon. If the doors wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work in a house, then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sold to the public at the ReStore, which sells stuff they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use in the houses. The public can buy them, and the money funds the nonprofit.â&#x20AC;? Sally nodded slowly at Rob, then glanced enviously at the beer the waitress had set by him. Today was one day she thought drinking on the job not such a bad idea. But Sally, a cub reporter of high integrity, never broke the rules. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ordered an iced tea so she could concentrate on her deadline and ponder how she was supposed to write a faceless feature article about a house project for unnamed owners completed at a secret address that she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t visit. Sigh. Maybe just a very, very small beer would help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look on the bright side, Sal,â&#x20AC;? said Rob. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So what if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a face for your article? Whoever those Ross homeowners were, they took a green step by keeping the guts of a 3,000-square-foot house out of the landfill, and instead donating all of its reusable parts to charity. They were following the lead of a nonprofit called Deconstruction and ReUse. Check out their website.â&#x20AC;? He tapped a bit on the iPhone again and on the screen appeared photographs of homes from all over California, remodeling sites from which the deconstructed materials had gone on to have a second life, rather than go to landfills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is amazing,â&#x20AC;? said Sally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looks like people are catching on to a radical new trendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; to stop throwing useful things away. I bet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revolutionizing the construction industry sinceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no offenseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you guys put more tons of stuff in the landfill than anyone else.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not me,â&#x20AC;? said Rob the Builder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not anymore. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve joined the Deconstruction and ReUse Network.â&#x20AC;? Sally smiled and grabbed her pen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, can I quote you on that?â&#x20AC;?

Ross homeowners make the news for taking their house apart rather than tearing it down during remodel.

Sight unseen, it surely conjures up unrealistic expectations of a campus fronted by a lush carpet of verdant vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes gently purpling in the cool breeze from the bay, a tree-lined country lane that leads to a little winery perched on a hill where students do nothing but crush grapes and make wine all day, holding class around a barrel head. Funny thing is, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all completely true. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not funny is that the entire California community college system is enduring an unprecedented era of stretched budgets and tightened belts. From higher fees to fewer classes, every department is feeling the squeeze. At Napa Valley College, one department is working hard to pay its own wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and have fun doing it. By selling wine, of course. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long time coming, considering that this college is located in the heart of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-recognized wine region. Although the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vineyards were first planted in the late

1980s, the dream of a fully operational student winery endured a somewhat longer hang-time before its fruition. The Napa Valley Vintnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teaching Winery was constructed in 2002, but it took an act of the California state legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Senate bill 220, sponsored by Sen. Wes Chesbroâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to allow the college to sell wine, normally prohibited on K-14 campuses. The winery bond, a first for a California community college, was obtained September 2008, just in time for the harvest. Being bonded allows the winery to legally store and market the wine that it makes, up to a specified amount, like 1,000 cases. Two hundred cases were put up for sale in the fall of 2009; production rose to 600 cases this year. If there is one class that students are avid to attend, it surely must be wine class. But while NVCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viticulture and winery technology department is the natural starting place for freshman vintners, younger students are the exception, says instructor Bryan Avila. In fact, the average student age is about 40. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have cellar rats looking to move up the crush pad,â&#x20AC;? Avila lists, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and career changers, retirees and people starting their own wineries.â&#x20AC;?

Avila, who doubles as the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official winemaker, is UC Davisâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;trained and has extensive experience in the industry, yet he readily admits to being upstaged by the educational background and professional experience of his students. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something about the humble grape that lures scientists, doctors and airline pilots with its siren song. But sing it does, and the college offers several paths for both the dabbler and the career-path student to succeed in squishing it into it boozy juice. On the southern edge of the campus, the original enology classroom is set adjacent to a neat block of knobby-trunked olive trees, just like any proper Napa Valley winery. Several decadesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of choice empties ring the roomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;relics of wine appreciation classes. Here students may diverge from Intro to Enology into wine science and analysis classes, leading toward an advanced winemaking degree, or into the winery operations series, with a focus on cellar management. The viticulture and winery technology department program includes a one-year certificate and a two-year associate of science option. The newer winery building holds &, THE BOHEMIAN

all of the toys. Petite fermentation tanks, boutique-sized presses and a laboratory with a nearly complete suite of testing equipment give staff and students full control of the vinting process. While Avila allows that winery internshipsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;harvest and crush jobs that typically last two to four monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are an important part of paying oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dues, the actual learning is often limited to washing bins. At Napa Valley College, students are exposed to the full range of operations, and the reward can be better, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a good relationship with the industry,â&#x20AC;? Avila says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very involved.â&#x20AC;? Avila helps to place students in winery positions, and wineries are increasingly interested in recruiting students from the program. To help the teaching facility attain a contemporary level of quality, area wineries have donated equipment, including a conveyor and sorting table that allows for triple-sorting of grapes. The wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondary warehouse is cluttered with still more well-intentioned donations like clean boxes and biological reactors, which, while not exactly suitable for the vinting of Chardonnayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;malalactic fermentation or notâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;helps the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line when sold second-hand to interested companies. A temperature-controlled barrel room fits several dozen premium French and American oak barrels, as well as pallets loaded with student projects in kegs, fivegallon glass jugs and odds lots. But the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wines are no mere experiments. Wines are professionally made under Avilaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supervision with an experienced staff assistant, winemaker Greg Siewert. Pricing the wines was a research exercise in itself. Students in the marketing class fanned out to local stores and gathered prices for Napa Valley estate wines of comparable varietals. Averaging them out, they arrived at fair, competitive prices. The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wines have tested well against others in a blind tasting. The wines are not available at the local grocer quite yet, but may be ordered through the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new ecommerce site and picked up on campus. On May 25, the winery holds its Bud Break and Bloom Spring Release Party, featuring the newly released 2008 Estate Syrah ($25), 2009 Estate Sauvignon Blanc ($18), 2009 Vintnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CuvĂŠe White ($10) and 2008 Vintnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CuvĂŠe Red ($12) served replete with food pairings. The 2009 Vintners CuvĂŠe White is a blend of whites, including 14 percent Muscat, contributing to its floral, racy bouquet, perfect when chilled for summer sipping, while the red is mainly a Cabernet blend. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty good winesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;fine wines, in fact, a serendipitous byproduct of their main mission, says Avila, who jokes that the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unofficial tagline is â&#x20AC;&#x153;We make fine winemakers.â&#x20AC;?

½;4CžB<>E4ž 4E4=<>A4 ast week, the White House task force on childhood obesity released its action plan to the president. The task force is spearheaded by First Lady Michelle Obama, who has made ending childhood obesity her personal cause. I wrote about the ďŹ rst ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Moveâ&#x20AC;? campaign a few months ago and expressed skepticism that the campaign wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t amount to much.

L

This new report adds to my misgivings, because it is far too deferential to the food industry. Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; failure to allocate more funding for school lunches means Tater Tots and chicken nuggets will still dominate school lunch menus. To the credit of the task force, the group has identiďŹ ed the food industry and advertising as part of the problem. To curb the inďŹ&#x201A;uence of Coke and Cheetos commercials, the report offers a number of recommendations to reform the food and beverage industry. One representative suggestion states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The food and beverage industry and the media and entertainment industry should jointly adopt meaningful, uniform nutrition standards for marketing food and beverages to children, as well as a uniform standard for what constitutes marketing to children.â&#x20AC;? Sounds good to me, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think asking nicely will produce much change. The Federal Trade Commission reports that television advertising makes up 46 percent of total expenses for marketing to children, and those ads arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for apples and quinoa. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re for processed foods loaded with salt, fat and calories. Perhaps the industry will see the writing on the wall, but I doubt they will reform until forced to do so. And of course, parents could stop buying bad food for their kids and turn off the TV. Meanwhile, school-lunch reformers hoped that the ďŹ rst ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s White House garden and support for more nutritious food would mean the president would offer more funding to improve the low-grade slop served in public schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and he did. The presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget proposed an additional $1 billion a year for 10 years to be divided between school food programs and WIC. Although $10 billion sounds like a lot, it pencils out to less than 20 cents more per student. Many school-lunch reformers are calling for a $1-per-student increase, ďŹ ve times what the president has proposed. But even that inadequate ďŹ gure got cut in half by Senate Agriculture Committee chair Blanche Lincoln, so until money becomes available school lunch reform appears to be dead. Without more public spending on school lunches and an effort to put some teeth behind efforts to force the food industry to stop marketing junk food to kids, I fear the Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Move wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going very far.

F8=4.8=8BA04;. hen Healdsburg winemaker Zelma Long arrived at her new place of employment in 2002 to enter a fresh winemaking project, she found herself in the presence of a grandeur that could reduce any pragmatic woman to romantic whimsy. For here among the Israeli vines was the Sea of Galilee, Mount Hermon and other sites that have felt the breath and footsteps of the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most worshiped prophets.

W

But Long quickly got down to business. In partnership with Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Victor Schoenfeld, the resident winemaker at the Golan Heights Winery, she began an evaluation of grape varieties and how they fare in the heat and mountainous heights of Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northeast corner (theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cultivating at up to 4,000 feet). Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and other common names have set their roots there comfortably. For our friend Vitis vinifera is truly at home in Israel. While France and Italy are commonly equated to a Mediterranean climate like our own, these nations receive heavy rains all summer. But Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dry summer heat provides conditions perhaps even more ideal for winemaking culture, which began there 6,000 years ago. Sadly, Israel lost its indigenous grape varieties during the time of Muslim rule, and in the eighth century, grape cultivation ceased. Vines grew old and handsome on the plateaus of the Golan Heights and in the desert oases to the south, but they were not propagated; no loving hands cut and cloned the favored cultivars of the country. Only through seed dispersal and natural reproduction did grapevines remain feral residents of the region, and heritage grapes melted into the wild. The genetic material remains in the wild grapes of the land, yet it is essentially lost. So Long and Schoenfeld are working with the usual varietal suspects meant for the world market. Indeed, Golan Heights Winery will begin pushing its Yarden Rom 2006â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a bright yet balanced blend of Merlot, Cab and Syrahâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;into the California market imminently. And a hard push it may be, for the wine starts at $160, a truly biblical number.

14=>E80 F8=4AH brand-new winery that dates from the turn of the century still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound right, does it? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the fault of the winery; I blame the century. While sipping at the local whiskey bar, I met some folks already intoxicated by just one beguiling glass of Benovia Zinfandel. Benoviaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I could swear Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that name before. A few days later, hearing of my tasting plans, another acolyte exclaimed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ooh, have you had their Zinfandel?â&#x20AC;?

A

Just west of suburban Santa Rosa is an area of gently undulating hills in the middle of a valley. Surrounded ďŹ rst by an acre of neat gravel, then vineyards and ďŹ nally ringed by coastal hills and the Mayacamas mountains is a big, brown barn. I swear Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen this barn before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;DeLoachâ&#x20AC;? pops in to my mind, as if whispered by an elf. Sure enough, our hostess says that the facility was originally built by DeLoach Winery before being sold to Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane. The story so far: these Arizonans found themselves keen on winemaking after proďŹ table careers in the healthcare sector, partnering with winemaker Mike Sullivan to found Benovia in 2005. Before imbibing, we take a looksee at the estateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Martaella Vineyard, which includes a recent addition that I also swear Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen before. Rows spaced just four feet apart, enough steel to build a Liberty Shipâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dĂŠjĂ  vu all over again. Yes, conďŹ rms our guide, a certain renowned â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dr. Dirtâ&#x20AC;? is assisting Benovia in its quest to grow even ďŹ ner grapes to add to its already acclaimed portfolio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Russian River Zinfandel, the classic Burgundian-Sonoma triumvirate. What, heard that one before? Sounds like our visit last week to Hartford Family Winery, winemaker Sullivanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous digs. Tasting is in the barrel room, nothing fussy, although an outbuilding is slated for hospitality purposes in the future. The 2008 Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay ($32) had high-toned oak notes, cracker, warm buttered toast and a sweet viscosity, while the 2008 La Pommeraie Chardonnay ($48) seemed perfumed with Golden Delicious apple skin that upstaged the stave and the patâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;lively and crisper on the ďŹ nish. Dark in fruit aromas, the 2008 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($45) rewarded the palate with fresh cherry; heady with bay leaf and anise, the 2007 Savoy Vineyard Pinot Noir ($55) plunged into darker ďŹ&#x201A;avors of plush plum and black cherry, with a long but puckery fruit-tannin ďŹ nish. As for the much-lauded Zinfandel, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all soldout, but still on the menu at Williâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wine Bar. I wish I could say that enjoying a bottle with Williâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ let mignon sliders was all too familiar to me. Benovia Winery, 3339 Hartman Road, Santa Rosa. Tasting by appointment only, 10am to 4pm daily. 707.526.4441.

old on!â&#x20AC;? cried Wilson Phillips (Marin County Fair, July 1). It was freezing in the room, the heating system broken, a metaphor for their relationship. Jack had just walked out for the umpteenth time, and Wilson ran after him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop your ramblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Jack (Marin County Fair, July 2),â&#x20AC;? she yelled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and come back and fix these Radiators (Mystic Theatre, June 13)!â&#x20AC;? But Jack had already bought tickets for an around-the-world Pablo Cruise (MarinSonoma Fair, June 26) to catch a basketball game in Havana with the Afro-Cuban All-Stars (Robert Mondavi Winery, July 17). Wilson had argued against the trip, saying that the all-stars were too short to play basketball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes (Wells Fargo Center, July 13),â&#x20AC;? Jack had said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but They Might Be Giants (Uptown Theatre, Aug. 21).â&#x20AC;? Wilson climbed to the top of Lauryn Hill (Harmony Festival, June 13) and tried to resist her Temptations (Marin County Fair, July 5). She wanted to fly away in a Joan Jett (Marin-Sonoma Fair, June 25) and find Jack. She prepared her ultimatum: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lyle Lovett (Uptown, July 21; WFC, July 20) or leave it!â&#x20AC;? sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tell him. If he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want her love, he could become one of Los Lonely Boys (Uptown, Aug. 5). Luckily, who should see Wilson crying the tears of a clown but Smokey Robinson (WFC, May 28). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ooh, baby, baby,â&#x20AC;? he soothed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Weather Channel says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a New Monsoon (Hopmonk Tavern, July 16) blowing through.

cloudy daysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;climb in my REO Speedwagon (WFC, July 28), and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take you to see a specialist at the Garaj Mahal (Hopmonk, July 23).â&#x20AC;? The drive was long. To pass the time, they picked up hitchhikers. One, with a hammer and toolbox, was a Mary Chapin Carpenter (WFC, Aug. 6); another was in retail as a Natalie Merchant (WFC, Aug. 10). Both were Waifs, but they shared some Poor Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Whiskey and sang songs by Greg Brown, Steve Earle, Ani DiFranco, Robert Earl Keen and Carrie Rodriguez (Kate Wolf Festival, June 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27). Finally, they reached the spot, their car immediately surrounded by Court Yard Hounds (Mondavi, July 10), snarling and drooling. Smokey knew the secret word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vetiver (Gundlach-Bundschu, June 5)!â&#x20AC;? he yelled. The Pack (Phoenix Theater, June 5) dispersed, Smokey and Wilson making their way to the front porch and ringing the Joshua Bell (Festival del Sole, July 18). The door opened. She appeared, her hair bunched in a pin encrusted with an Eileen Jewell (Studio E, June 18). All Wilson noticed were the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low-cut dress and tell-tale Mother Hips (Hopmonk, June 18). Sure enough. It was the exotic mystic, Charo (Lincoln Theater, Sept. 10). Charo had worked her magic on many before, from Miranda Lambert (Sonoma County Fair, Aug. 2) to Esperanza Spalding (Healdsburg Jazz Festival, June 11) to Rickie Lee Jones (Uptown, June 19). Basically, had a woman ever been spurned by a man, Charo was there to make things right. Everyone (% Wilson knew used Charoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Charo placed some Carolina Chocolate Drops (Mystic, June 26) in Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth, and she went limp, falling to the floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me get my sister, Carol (Far West Fest, July 17),â&#x20AC;? said Charo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She knows how to handle the tired, the worn-down, the Merle Haggard (Uptown, June 12).â&#x20AC;? Carol came and lifted Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body, placing an ancient Desert Rose Band (Mystic, May 29) around her right index finger. Carol gathered together a dried Bone, some Thugs and sang Harmony (Phoenix, June 5) into Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dear Carol!â&#x20AC;? Wilson cried, and then, because she was out of breath, repeated it in acronym form: â&#x20AC;&#x153;MDC! MDC! MDC (Phoenix, June 12)!â&#x20AC;? But Carol was no singer, and her Monophonics (Far West Fest, July 17) grated on Charoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enough!â&#x20AC;? the mystic commanded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We go now into my Tower of Power (Marin-Sonoma Fair, June 23) for an exorcism with Ravi Coltrane, Charlie Haden and Geri Allen (Healdsburg Jazz Festival, June 12). You, Wilson, up the stairs. Now.â&#x20AC;? But the trio was nowhere to be found. Instead a Frenchman, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and an Italian, Carlo Ponti Jr. (Festival del Sole, July 20 and 25), stood guard. Smokey lied to them and said his name was Friedman, and ensured that he could fulfill their desires in exchange for passage into the towerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even a little hed (pe) (Phoenix, Aug.3), he promised, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they were into. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get kinky, Friedman (Studio E, Aug. 5),â&#x20AC;? said Carlo. By now, Wilson had forgotten all about Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a good thing, since he had left the cruise to shack up with yet another funloving girl, Cyndi Lauper (Uptown, Aug. 18). Cyndi was a John Legend (WFC, July 31) in her own mind, a diabolical temptress who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind being called Blondie (WFC, Aug. 5) if it meant getting ahead. Jack and Cyndi were lounging on the back patio of a New Mexican taqueria, drinking two beers each, turning the bottles bottoms-up and tipsily flinging the Four Tops (Marin County Fair, July 5) at each other, when the telegram came over the George Cables (HJF, June 9). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call my attorneys, Jason Moran and Bill Frisell (HJF, June 13),â&#x20AC;? it read. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Been kidnapped by disco flamenco hoochie and Motown legend. Come quick.â&#x20AC;? Jack bolted. Cyndi or no Cyndi, he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to let a disco flamenco hoochie steal his woman. He thought of calling famed tough-guy-for-hire Rufus Wainwright (Uptown, Aug. 22) to come along. He thought of renting a chainsaw from Jackyl (Last Day Saloon, May 26). He thought of bringing the Old Western posse Crosby, Stills and Nash (Sonoma Jazz +, May 21) to intimidate Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kidnappers. But no. This was a job for Jack to do alone. He found the nearest phone booth, spun around in a circle, and turned into the superhero Powerman 5000 (Last Day Saloon, June 2). Will Powerman retrieve his woman? Will Wilson run off instead with Brandi Carslile (Mystic, June 24â&#x20AC;&#x201C;25)? How does Del McCoury and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (Marin County Fair; July 4) fit into all of this? Stay tuned for the box-office sequel to Possibly the Most Ridiculous Thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Ever Written, starring Chuck Prophet (St. Helena Native Sons Hall, June 19), and see you at the shows this summer!

This summer itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all pirates and vampiresâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and, sure, dying of AIDSâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on area stages By David Templeton

C

he dukes are upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in more ways than one. This summer, Peter Pan will take on Peter Pan, pirates will battle pirates, and dying bohemian squatters will attempt to outmaneuver other dying bohemian squatters. Yes, the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various theater companies will be going headto-head over the next few months, all in an effort to attract audiences to their various halls, parks or amphitheaters. What are the odds, though, that from San Francisco to Healdsburg there are at least four instances of the same play being staged by two different theater groups, all within easy driving distance of each other? Two Peter Pans, two Rents, two Taming of the Shrews (both with pirates!) and even two Les Liaisons Dangereuses, though one of them boasts the juicy, aberrational addition of vampires. That these theatrical duels are taking place when the North Bay theater scene is recovering from last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunning sucker-punch dismissal of Elizabeth Craven, artistic director of the Sixth Street Playhouse, lends a bit of real-life drama to all of the nose-to-nose, same-play match-ups. Cravenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s force-out, under mysterious circumstancesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sixth Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors declines to give any public reason for the actionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has sparked a whispery firestorm of rumors, guesses, speculations and accusations.

With everyone appearing to have some strong opinion on the subject, and with more details sure to unfold as the summer begins, the stage is set for a season of high drama. Thankfully, most of that drama will be taking place on actual stages. And it all starts with Rent. Jonathan Larsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1996 Tony awardâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Pulitzer Prizeâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;winning musical is based loosely on the opera La Bohème, with AIDS stepping in where consumption originally stood. The rock-fueled story follows a band of loosely knit artists and musicians, wrestling with love, life and death as they attempt to avoid eviction from the condemned New York apartment building they call home. In the first of two Sonoma County productions, Sixth Street Playhouse presents the popular, stillcontroversial show beginning May 28. Six-weeks after that show closes, Rent will be raised again in Healdsburg, with the Raven Players staging their own version of the show at the Raven Theater. This marks a major step forward for the Ravens, who will kick their summer season open with the North Bay premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved Cats, beginning on June 25. In the midst of its annual Shakespeare Festival, in a cheerful outdoor corner of San Rafael, Marin Shakespeare Company fires the first shot in the looming North Bay pirate battle, launching a Pirates of the (' Caribbean version of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Taming of the Shrew, starting in late July, which is immediately followed by Napa Valley Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own piratical production of Shrew, itself a reworking of the monstrously popular Shrew staged two years ago by the Sebastopol Shakespeare Festival, again directed by Jennifer King, with Dodds Delzell as Petruchio and Danielle Cain as Katherine. Filled with swordplay and sexy doubleentendres, the latter will be the one-andonly offering of the newish Napa Valley Shakespeare, while the former will be one of three plays presented in Marin County. Joining Shrew will be Tom Stoppardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Travesties, a kind of sequel to The Importance of Being Ernest, and Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anthony and Cleopatra (itself a sequel to Julius Caesar). Santa Rosa Junior Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious training ground, Summer Repertory Theater, now in its 38th year, will be staging five shows this summer, two of which have the interesting fortune of being performed elsewhere in the area (though in significantly different productions). Along with the usual multiflavored blend of musicals (Forever Plaid, The Full Monty, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), SRTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrated international assemblage of actors will be doing Les Liaisons Dangereuses (with vampires), a new version of the classic tale of Parisian seduction and deceit, but with ancient bloodsuckers instead of the usual, run-of-the-mill French aristocrats. For those hankering for a more traditional Liaisons, Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Porchlight Theater presents the same show without vampires beginning June 17. Summer Repertory also stages J. M. Barrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original Peter Pan: or, The Boy Who Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Grow Up. Not the beloved Mary Martin musical, this is the play that premiered in 1906 and inspired San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Threesixty Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently running Peter Pan, a much-hyped high-tech version performed in a large tent, with impressive projections that heighten the sense of flight when the various pajamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d runaways take to the skies. For those keeping score, there might have been a third Peter Pan in the area, had Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Mountain Play not scrapped its original plans and switched from the flying boys to singing gamblers. Beginning this weekend, in the Cushing Amphitheater atop Mt. Tamalpais, the Mountain Play launches Guys and Dolls, and this looks to be a visually dazzling presentation, with more wide lapels and kitschy costumes than are normally allowed in one place. Apparently, a few companies in the region are not doing any plays performed by another troupe. One is the Sonoma County Repertory Theater. Its annual Sebastopol Shakespeare Festival features the light-and-dark double-shot of the Bard, with The Comedy of Errors (the twistiest of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mistaken-twins comedies) and Macbeth, complete with witches, curses and severed heads. Festivities begin July 7 with Macbeth, then switch to Comedy on Aug. 18. Finally, the storied Ross Valley Players present A. R. Gurneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raucous social satire The Middle Ages, set in the trophy room of an exclusive menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s club. Staged in RVPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charming Old Barn Theater, The Middle Ages opens on July 16.

est Summer Movie Anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as in the free outdoor films screened as part of Film Night in the Park, showing variously in San Geronimo (Napoleon Dynamite, June 4), Fairfax (for the ecofest, June 11), Mill Valley (Star Trek, June 18) and so on with different films through the summer. Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lucchesi Park hosts free outdoor movies every Friday starting June 11 with Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. Best Commando Team Movie This is the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most crowded field, but MacGruber (May 21) beats out May 28â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sex and the City 2 (an A-Team of patriotic cougars heads to Dubai to swive the Arabs into docility). Or July 9â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Predators (an A-Team of killers vs. crab-faced Aliens). Or July 16â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inception (more Dream Team than A-Team). Or June 11â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The A-Team (an A-Team movie about the actual A-Team). Or June 4â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Micmacs (an ATeam of dump-dwelling French weirdoes take on a munitions conglomerate, directed by Amelieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s J. P. Jeunet). Or Aug. 13â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Expendables (Stallone directing Schwarzenegger, Lundgren and Rourke in what could, will and shall be called The AARP Team). Heck, MacGruber beats them all. Will Forte stars as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toughest action man in the extended red-band film version of the sketch on Saturday Night Live. The choice is fortified by our own desire to watch Kristen Wiig do anything: wash dishes, repair a head gasketâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whatever, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good. Most Backlash-Prone Movie In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (June 30), Bella Swan (Kristin

Stewart) waffles over her choice of supernatural beaux. This one is no exception to the rule that the funniest line will always be in the trailer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to fight for youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; until your heart stops beatingâ&#x20AC;? will be quoted and giggled over until Labor Day. Most Worthwhile Remake The Killer Inside Me (June 25). This is another crowded field, beating out June 11â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karate Kid (with Jackie Chan) and certainly July 2â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Last Airbender with M. Night Shymalan. Here he is, still remaking movies when he could be healing the sick. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bypass the Englishlanguage remake of Le Diner du Cons, Dinner for Schmucks (July 23), which wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly an arcane French movie in the original. So, Killer: a seriously faithful circa-1950s version of the Jim Thompson novel. Casey Affleck as the soft-spoken Texas deputy who everyone takes for a fool until he learns â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em better. Strange feeling, to actually be looking forward to a Michael Winterbottom movie for once. Best Rejected Advertisement Line For Ramona and Beesus (June 23): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beesus! And Beverly Cleary is as rich as Croesus!â&#x20AC;? Best Alternative to Summer Movie Burnout Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bone (June 18), a tough, frosty Little Red Riding Hood story in which thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing but wolves. Jennifer Lawrence stars as an Ozark girl in search of her no-good, meth-cooking father, who pawned the family spread in exchange for bail. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best escape from escapism. Best Way to Tell the Difference Between Adam Sandler and a Great Daneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rump Marmaduke opens June 4; Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grown Ups opens June 25. (+

Best Way to Tell the Difference Between â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Eat Pray Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Predatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Julia Roberts eats, prays and loves; Predators (July 9) love to eat their prey. The former (Aug. 13) stars Roberts in the film version of authorette Elizabeth Gilbertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memwah of traveling from Italy to India to Indonesia (yes, the key letter is I). In the latter, a group of savage alien sportsmen hunt the beast called man on a hell planet even worse than earth. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re counting on our readers to make the mature choice; see you at the alien movie. Best Baffler Inception (July 16). Viewing the Escher-like cities and floating humans, audiences gape at the preview of the new Christopher Nolan film and utter the letters W, T and F in sequence. We have it on the authority of Nolan (per his appearance at WonderCon) that this is merely a heist movie with a bit of futuristic technology included. Leonardo DiCaprio is the head of a team of thieves who crack exceptionally wellguarded vaults: the subconscious of their sleeping victims. Nolan made a minor movie about a caped vigilante chasing a scar-faced horror clown, but forecasting this filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take vis-Ă -vis The Dark Knight is a task for those who enjoy counting other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money. No other film this summer should offer such delightful bafflement. Runner up: The Adjustment Bureau (July 30) with Matt Damon, based on a 1954 Philip K. Dick short story concerning interdimensional border troubles. Best Opinion-Making Advance Word by Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s True Movie Critics, the Fans (Really and truly overheard outside a mall) Teen Weasel A: â&#x20AC;&#x153;That dude from Brokeback Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna be Prince of Persia [May 28]!â&#x20AC;? Teen Weasel B: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aw, no, man, he a fag!â&#x20AC;? Best Monster Movie Vincenzo Nataliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding Splice (June 4) mixes the DNA of David Cronenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pervy yet icy Canadian dismay with Guillermo del Toroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich paganism. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the story of a gene-splicing experiment that probably should have been avoided. Much deadpan fun as the bald creature developsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so advanced for her age, a monster of Aubrey Beardsley-worthy insinuation. Trying to outwit it, Sarah Polley is the most winning embodiment of redheaded geek chick youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see this summer. (Not counting Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl in Toy Story 3, June 18.) Keep an ear open for a throwaway line by Polley that may end the custom of describing business meetings as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a dog and pony showâ&#x20AC;? once and for all. Best Corporate Fat Cat The now obese Puss in Boots from Shrek Forever After (May 21) gets the nod over the title criminal mastermind in July 30â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Should animals star in Bond parodies? Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that what PETA was formed to stop? Best Movie to See with Mom Tie: Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (June 18) and I Am Love (June 25). The former is the true story of the liaison between the smell-maker and the noise-maker, with Anna Mouglalis and Mads Mikkelsen flaring their nostrils in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general direction. The other, a glamorous Milan drama with Tilda Swinton involved in the ruin of a well-off family. Most Peaceful Theater The one showing Nanny McPhee Returns (Aug. 20). Best Moment of Realizing This Summer Was Probably Going to Be Like All Others Watching the preview of Takers when going to see The Losers.

What a Hoot

Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently restored Uptown Theatre has opened (finally!) at an opportune juncture in the North Bay. With Konocti Harbor Resort closed and the Wells Fargo Center restructuring its booking, the Uptownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management have picked up the ball and are spelling out acts on its marquee that used to grace those venues: Ani DiFranco, Foreigner, Lewis Black, Asia, B. B. King, Merle Haggard. Smaller performers who might not ordinarily play an opulently renovated 860-seat 1930s theater get a chance, too, with a handful of interesting double bills, including Richard Thompson and Loudon Wainwright III together later this month. This weekend, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grammy winner Shawn Colvin paired with the bespectacled Lisa Loeb on Saturday, May 22, at the Uptown. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $37â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$47. 707.259.0123.

The big question facing all classical-music organizations these days is how to convert new fans. The Cotati-based American Philharmonic orchestra has hit upon the most effective, if obvious, answer: make concerts free. Selfdescribed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orchestra,â&#x20AC;? thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing stuffy about the APâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performances, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re usually peppered with uncommon pieces from the repertoire. This weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program, titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Inner Spaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Outer Space,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; features Holstâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Planets, a common piece if ever there was one. But representing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;innerâ&#x20AC;? portion of the program is Coplandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poignant Quiet City, originally written for an obscure Irwin Shaw play of the same name that closed after two shows. Debussyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nocturnes rounds out the egalitarian experience on Saturday, May 22, at 8pm and Sunday, May 23, at 3pm, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. Free; donations encouraged. 707.542.8234.

There are some dishes to be done. Fill the sink with water, clean them, drain the sink. Carpetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little dirty. Get out vacuum, turn it on, turn it off. Dust on the bookshelves. Find duster, dust, replace duster. Like a household chore, it was with this same perfunctory process that E-40 appeared to treat his show two months ago in Petaluma: Get to show, play hits, bail. Within 45 minutes, a guy counted a stack of cash on the stage; directly after, the Vallejo-bred rapper was out the side door and driving away in an SUV. But you wanna know the maddening thing? Those were 45 insanely great minutes. For those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve danced their asses off to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sprinkle Meâ&#x20AC;? live and in person, make witâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; da hurryupness when E-40 plays on Thursday, May 20, at 19 Broadway Niteclub, 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 9:30pm. $30. 415.459.1091.

Within days of the first, wildly successful Hootenanny at the North Bay Film and Art Collective, event organizers celebrated with the modern version of the old-time vaudeville afterglow: they started a Facebook page. It soon emerged that there was more than memorializing at hand, though, because this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second installment, titled Dustbowl Road, features over two dozen bands spread out over just five hours. At a block party including Video Droid, the Last Record Store, Community Market and Gaiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the music of Waters, J. D. Limelight, Skiff le Symphony, the Easy Leaves and truckloads more. Workshops and jams continue throughout the day until the afterparty at the North Bay Film and Art Collective that night at 6:30pm. Grab your banjo and shuck on down on Saturday, May 22, at Clement and Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. Noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm. Free. 707.525.1963.

Is there a living classical guitarist more innovative than Paul Galbraith? hile sensitivity of touch and other subjective nuances inspire long-winded debates on classicalguitar message boards, one thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certain: thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no classical guitarist alive today with the unusual technical innovation of 46-year-old Paul Galbraith. With his eight-string positioned vertically like a cello, Galbraith performs with the guitarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s metal endpin atop a resonating wooden box. An angled bridge gives his instrument a wider range, and his hand positions allow for more nimble, formal playing, while his lyrical sound is amplified from the floor. For Galbraith, though, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to transform the instrument (his was made in collaboration with the great luthier David Rubio, of whom Julian Bream was fond); the Scottish-born musician has also been transforming the repertoire. Or, rather, adapting it. Galbraithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1998 arrangements of the complete solo Bach Violin Sonatas and Partitas garnered a Grammy nomination, and his other arrangements include piano works by Haydn, Debussy and Ravel. A piano has seven octaves; a guitar, four. Whom does that hinder? Not Galbraith. Galbraithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent was introduced to the area through a much-talked-about church concert in Occidental, and his subsequent performance of Rodrigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Concierto de Aranjuez with the Santa Rosa Symphony caused an incredible tectonic activity among classical fans. His anticipated return comes this weekend with the PaciďŹ c Chamber Symphony in Napa. After Beethovenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eroica Symphony no. 3, a plain-looking man will walk onstage with his cello-guitar, put his feet on six-inch rests, position himself above his strange wooden box and amaze the crowd with a repeat performance of Rodrigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Concierto. Afterward, there will be no debate: Galbraithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alone in his ďŹ eld. Be there on Sunday, May 23, at the Napa Valley Opera House to see it. 1030 Main St., Napa. 2pm. $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. 707.226.7372. Gabe Meline

Earth, Wind & Fire give the people what they want have to tell you honestly,â&#x20AC;? says Earth, Wind & Fire percussionist Ralph Johnson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a sense of urgency about putting out new material.â&#x20AC;? This was evident in an article in Billboard last year, when singer Philip Bailey mentioned that the lite-funk juggernaut was planning a three-CD set with new and live material. But the mid-2009 target date for releasing the package came and went, and now that Earth, Wind & Fire are busy touring, Johnson says fans shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold their breath waiting for the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always entertaining the thought of doing a new record,â&#x20AC;? Johnson insists in a phone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing is, when people come to see our show, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about new material. They want to hear the stuff they grew up on. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to establish our career.â&#x20AC;? Johnson raises a valid point about where Earth Wind & Fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career stands. Formed in 1969 by Maurice White, the group made its breakthrough in 1974 with the album Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Way of the World, featuring the hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shining Star.â&#x20AC;? Over the next eight years, Earth, Wind & Fire reeled off a steady string of platinum albums (Gratitude, Spirit, Raise) and a basketful of slam-dunk hit singles before taking a hiatus from 1983 to 1987. By that time, the group had scored enough hits to ensure a viable concert draw for the duration of their career. They appear May 22 at Sonoma Jazz +. Hits from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s continue to form the bulk of Earth Wind & Fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s live show. But these days, Johnson admits, the band can no longer afford to stage the visually spectacular concerts it did in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s with pyrotechnics and lasers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve toned it down considerably, and now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to give you more the personalities within the group and within the music,â&#x20AC;? Johnson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not so much about what we used to call the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;whiz-bang.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Earth, Wind & Fire headline Sonoma Jazz + (which also includes Crosby, Stills & Nash and Elvis Costello on Friday and Sunday, respectively) with opener Poncho Sanchez on Saturday, May 22. The fest runs May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;23 at the Field of Dreams, 151 First St. W., Sonoma. 6:30pm. $60â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$260. 866.527.8499. www.sonomajazz.org. Alan Sculley

Tribute concert celebrates slain luthier By Bruce Robinson

C

aku Sakashta spent his last night, like many before it, working late and alone, crafting one of the singular instruments for which he was renowned. Out of his small workshop in a west Rohnert Park industrial park, Sakashta created mandolins and guitars that were widely admired within the close-knit world of world-class luthiers and prized by the musicians who own them. Hence, the news spread swiftly among them after Sakashta, aged 43, was found stabbed to death outside that workshop on Feb. 11, apparently the random victim of a robbery attempt. The subsequent outpouring of appreciation, dismay and affection rippled across guitar-related blogs and websites. Sakashtaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunned Sonoma County friends and colleagues have channeled a portion of their grief into organizing a remarkable benefit concert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Intimate Evening for Takuâ&#x20AC;? will be held at Spreckels on May 23, featuring several of his high-profile customers, including Boz Scaggs, Tuck Andress and Robben Ford. A light show and silent auction are also part of the event. Proceeds will benefit the late luthierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, who was also his business partner; they have no children. Donations may also be made to a memorial account in Sakashtaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name at the Elmwood branch of

Wells Fargo bank in Berkeley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a true artist,â&#x20AC;? says Ford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything he did has a kind of spiritual depth to it. There was so much heart and soul in the guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and I would say, his lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that just came through, especially his attention to detail.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was just extremely tweaky. It had to be perfect,â&#x20AC;? agrees Chad Mangrum, Sakashtaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close friend and recent co-worker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where most people would be happy with something, he would trash it and start over. It had to be 110-percent perfect or it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up to his standards.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taku was a master Japanese luthier, an amazing artisan and a good friend,â&#x20AC;? laments Mac Skinner, operations manager at a small speaker company next door to the guitar makerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He built guitars that were some of the most beautiful youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen. Not to mention the way that they sound, and the way that they function and the quality craftsmanship that was involved in each one of his guitars.â&#x20AC;? That aesthetic, carrying echoes of his native Japan, quickly won Sakashta the acceptance of the older, established guitar makers in the area, observes Chris Herrod, sales manager for Luthiers Mercantile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way they opened up to him was somewhat unusual because he was a young guy and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a typical member of the group. But his work was so excellent and his ideas were so good that he was welcomed into the group at a very high level.â&#x20AC;? A frequent visitor to the Windsor supply house for instrument makers, Sakashta â&#x20AC;&#x153;would often give us ideas for new products,â&#x20AC;? Herrod adds. And in addition to being a regular exhibitor at the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biannual Healdsburg Guitar Festival, Sakashta reached out to invite other Japanese instrument makers to join in the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did translation for them and helped arrange their travel and applications, and really helped us become an international event,â&#x20AC;? Herrod says. Sakashta made both acoustic and electric instruments, and his Unicorn & Mustang mandolin was as sought-after as his guitars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all hand-built,â&#x20AC;? Mangrum says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an assembly line. It was only him. And it would take him months to finish anything, sometimes even longer.â&#x20AC;? The completed instruments commanded prices of $15,000 to $25,000, sometimes more. The Buddhist craftsman was also an enthusiastic rock and roll fan, with a special fondness for Kiss and, later, Robben Ford. Their relationship began when Sakashta made a point of seeking out Ford at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mystic Theatre, and offered him an instrument, the blues guitarist recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a beautiful instrument, but I told him it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for me. And he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Can I build you something else?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sure.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? After a couple of other not-quite-right attempts, Sakashta surprised Ford with the black â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Paulâ&#x20AC;? solid body. It soon became Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favored axe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given all the ingredients and all of my needs, which are very particular to me, he actually finally nailed it,â&#x20AC;? Ford smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And no one else really had.â&#x20AC;? Robben Ford, Boz Scaggs, Tuck and Patti, Volker Strifler and others pay tribute to Taku Sakashta on Sunday, May 23, at the Spreckels Performing Arts Center. 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. 4pm. $55â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$100. 707.588.3400.

Costas Schulerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest to collect 1 million pens elt pens. Ray-gun pens. Marks-a-Lot pens. Triangle pens. Bic pens. Flower pens. Sharpie pens. Dinosaur pens. Parker pens. Fine-tip pens. Lipstick pens. Promotional pens. Candy-cane pens. Big pens, small pens. It all started about five years ago when Costas Schuler woke up one morning with an idea. He trudged out to his clunky 1981 Mercedes-Benz 300SD 126, with a tube of DAP silicone sealant in one hand and 20 pens in the other. Since then, Schulerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s covered every available inch of his car with over 10,000 used, discarded or recycled pens. Why would Schuler undertake such a project? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all have pens. But when you put a bunch of pens in one area,â&#x20AC;? he dryly motions, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humorous.â&#x20AC;? Aside from saving a bunch of plastic and ink from the landfill, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as that. Schuler doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell pens. Nor does he put on airs that his pen project is an homage to old media; in fact, Schulerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day job is working at a keyboard all day doing graphic design. Gluing pens to his car was just â&#x20AC;&#x153;a way for me to do something tactile,â&#x20AC;? he says, echoing the physical longing of a virtual generation. Schuler brings his pen-covered car to the Maker Faire in San Mateo this weekend. Because of his pen-guy.blogspot.com page, Schuler gets packages of pens from all over the world, either in the mail or dropped off at community locations. Schulerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently aiming to collect 1 million pens, and, with any luck, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon be able to mark the North Bay as the recycled pen capital of the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I love about this country is all these roadside attractions, all these weird things you can go see. I want to create one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Pentopia,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big warehouse, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this magical place. It looks like nature, with hills and trees, and everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made out of pens. Think of Willy Wonkaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chocolate Factoryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made of pens. I want to have a pool, a river, but with pens. Maybe like in Vegas, where they have a show every hour, I want to do a waterfall show, with pens falling every hour. Goofy stuff like that. Just totally explore the fun.â&#x20AC;? Having clocked 272,000 miles, Schulerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diesel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mercedes-Pensâ&#x20AC;? is also a way for him to talk to people either in the supermarket parking lot or at the occasional motivational speaking appearance. How can inspiration be derived from an old car covered in pens? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see somebody doing something wacky, it might trigger something in you that says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, you know what? I had this idea. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of out there, but he did his. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel so weird doing mine,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Schuler explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to give people permission to fulfill their destiny. When you meet people who are walking in their destiny, who are doing what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re meant to do, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re attracted to them. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lit, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re alive. I want to give that to people.â&#x20AC;? The Pen Guy will be at the Maker Faire Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday, May 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;23, at the San Mateo County Expo Center,1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo. makerfaire.com.

Former executive examines Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second golden era eddy bears. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what did it. Those villainous, multicolored teddy bears. The turning point for Disney animation came in 1985, after Disney had pumped $44 million into The Black Cauldron, only to see it slaughtered at the box office by The Care Bears Movie. This humiliation is where the full-length documentary Waking Sleeping Beauty, made in part by former Disney Animation president Peter Schneider (above, with Roy Disney), beginsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animators exiled from their deluxe studios to drab warehouses in Glendale. Through archival footage, original sketches, behind-thescenes vignettes and interviews, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you realize these were nutty, wonderful, fabulous people,â&#x20AC;? Schneider tells the Bohemian by phone, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I think they truly felt their job was over.â&#x20AC;? It was only through their own determination, unhindered creativity and freedom that those animators ushered Disney into a second golden era; namely, they made The Little Mermaid. This renaissance, which included Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, is the timeline of Waking Sleeping Beauty. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the young lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the margarita-drinking, Apocalypse Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;quoting animators who spend their free time drawing vile caricatures of studio headsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that provide the rarely-seen human face. One such talent is Tim Burton; another, John Lasseter, who sneaks a Super 8 camera on the Disney lot to capture the atmosphere. (Filming on the lot was explicitly forbidden by Disney at the time.) Another valuable savior of the era is lyricist Howard Ashman, the guiding force behind The Little Mermaid. Ashman died of AIDS while finishing Beauty and the Beast, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge loss,â&#x20AC;? says Schneider. What Waking Sleeping Beauty doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do is get nasty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being there, there were no good guys or bad guys,â&#x20AC;? Schneider says. What he calls the â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramaâ&#x20AC;? inside Disney has been chronicled elsewhere, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;this really was an opportunity to find the joyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the frustration, and human foibles in all of usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in the process of what we did,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one set out to be a villain. There are no villains. Know what I mean?â&#x20AC;? Peter Schneider conducts a Q&A following the 4:30pm and 7pm opening screenings of Waking Sleeping Beauty on Friday, May 20, at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas. 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pastiche!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; re-imagines the filthy gorgeous world of the carnival oinciding with the start of summer, the Theater Arts Revival (TAR) is stepping onstage to jumpstart Napa Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performing arts scene. In collaboration with the Tucker Farm Center and the Napa Valley Mustard Festival, TAR has banded together for the collective mission of bringing theater and arts programs back to the community without busting the bank. The group was formed by several board members of the former Napa Valley Community Theater companyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Reece Baswell, Judith Thomas and Bonnie Zimmermannâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;responsible for such sideshow kickers as Planet Vega$, Cabaret Comique and Many Pearls Opry. Never ones to rest on commonplace theater laurels, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made it their business to shack up on the obscure side of the fence for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural show Pastiche!, a musical comedy of the absurd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show is a joint fundraiser for Tucker and TAR,â&#x20AC;? explains Zimmermann, who is also the executive producer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monies raised will be used for subsequent productions and community theatrical projects.â&#x20AC;? This show promises to offer a glimpse into all things good and evil in the wacky world of carnies. The Carnival Pastiche is a small time second-rate freak show thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen better days. A fake Hungarian countess, who may have spawned the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cougarâ&#x20AC;? craze back in the day, sits at the helm of this posse of misfits and miscreants comprising sideshow attractions, singers, dancers, Gypsies, dreamers and even an Elvis impersonator. When Pasticheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glossier, alter-ego competitor, Pablo Fanqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Faire, accidentally burns down (foul play anyone?), the more accomplished Fanque players threaten to replace Pastiche for good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show is loosely based on characters from the John Lennon song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Zimmermann says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which was written about a real carnival and its performers from the turn of the century.â&#x20AC;? Be prepare to be razzle-dazzled as you sing your way through loosely recognizable Broadway show tunes done differently than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen in these parts. Pastiche! runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, May 28â&#x20AC;&#x201C;30, at the Tucker Farm Center, 1201 Tucker Road (just past Bothe Napa State Park), Calistoga. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 3pm. A silent auction precedes the May 29 performance. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.965.2538. Christina Julian
