How the SMART Train can change food distribution for the better By Lito Brindle

>

ur food system, like our democracy, is corrupted by money. It siphons off subsidies without regard for the greater good, the same way it siphons off water without regard for public health or aquatic life. Those subsidies do not ensure that everyone is fed, but for the profit of â&#x20AC;&#x153;farmersâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is to say people who do not farm but who own gigantic farms, or the shareholders thereof. The problem is that our local food producers have to compete with these â&#x20AC;&#x153;farmers,â&#x20AC;? and if you produce food in a way that is healthy for the food and the land, your commodities will be more expensive and you will be at a disadvantage in the marketplace. The SMART train represents the perfect vehicle to create for ourselves an unabashedly isolationist, protectionist local food system. We are creating the train through a special district serving Marin and Sonomaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;why not couple it with cars that could serve as rolling farm stands for Marin and Sonoma food producers? The commuter trains could pick up the cars at depots in the morning to distribute to all or some of the communities that will be served by the SMART train. Rail is by far the most efficient way to move goods on land. Farm cars for the SMART train would simply be a way to get the local food to people in the most efficient way possible. The very fact that we have this spectacularly engineered railroad right-ofway in our midst speaks to this efficiency. It harks back to the times before we could blithely strap a little petroleum rocket pack to an apple, say, and send it halfway around the world. Next time you handle produce in a warehouse store and you see on the sticker that the apples are from Chile and the oranges from Australia, try and picture the size of the carbon balloon attached to that little piece of fruit merely to transport it. Regionally, farm cars in our train stations would neatly bookend the other end of the ferry line from San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ferry Building. Their presence would underscore the fact that,

hey, this is where all that great foodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;crab, oysters, meats, cheeses, milk and butter and cream, ice cream, fruits and vegetablesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;comes from. Planners have described Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed rail and transit center as a Ferry Building of the wine country. How lively and vital and astonishing would it be to step off the train there or in Petaluma to shop and see carloads of local produce leaving the station, farmers arriving, youth stevedores moving goods on handcars. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use our imaginations! There is anxiety among those who worry about the politics of food and how it is distributed that poor minority communities do not have access to healthy food. Down here in Marin, we are not especially diverse, but our transit centers sure are. Farm cars in our transit centers each day would mean that the woman at Third and Heatherton who cleans your house and cares for your children would get first pick of produce that is so healthy, fresh, local and sustainable that it would excite Alice Waters and Michael Pollan to the point that they would have to take turns fanning one another with her funny hat. Social justice never tasted so good. Thank you for using public transportation! Do not be discouraged by that vocal minority that grumbles about the cost of the train. When we collectively spend several hundred million dollars per project to add a lane of freeway here or to straighten out a viaduct or reconfigure an interchange or add a sound wall thereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;work that is going on all over the region and state all the timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no one makes a peep. We can afford it. Keep in mind that the generation that we call the greatest one in our short history conceived and built the Golden Gate Bridge during the Great Depression. We will need some of that generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy and resolve when the Pearl Harbor of climate change comes down and we mobilize for the mother of all heroic struggles. We can refurbish a few score miles of train track. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be good practice.

It would excite Alice Waters and Michael Pollan to the point that they would have to take turns fanning one another with her funny hat.

There is nothing more poignant and vital for our cultural future then having an understanding and willful acknowledgment of the ideas contained in this little open mic article by Leha Carpenter (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sweet Little Lies,â&#x20AC;? Feb. 9). The uprisings going on in the Middle East, North Africa and now America are a symptom of this disease of lies and mistrust. Simply put, people are tired of the bullshit and willing to hit the streets for an opportunity to express their outrage and discontent with the status quo. Get ready America. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming here in a big way.

Senate Bill 376, which will ban shark fin products in California, is a far cry from cold-blooded racism, as Sen. Leland Yee suggests. Shark finning kills up to 100 million sharks every year. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the importance of sharks in the ocean ecosystem, both here in the Bay Area and across the globe. Many shark species are endangered or becoming endangered, and are in need of being protected. Protecting our atmosphere, ocean health and ocean food supply should be of greater priority than preserving an antiquated cultural tradition such as shark fin soup. Many young Asian Americans agree with this outlook.

I can understand how Sen. Yee might feel this is an insult to the Asian community. In my opinion, it has nothing to do with raceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;only preservation of our oceans, sharks and ecosystems. Certain practices, regardless of race, religion or political ideology, should and are updated to fit the world that we live in. For example, we do not find it acceptable for a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genitals to be mutilated at birth in hopes that she stays loyal to her husband; we do not find it acceptable to allow one man to marry multiple wives, even though some religions view it as right. The United States is indeed a melting pot of culture, but not all aspects of every culture are sustainable in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modern American society. A perfect example is the end of the dolphin slaughter in the Solomon Islands, a practice closely tied to their economy. The future relies on the lawmakers. No one wants to look back on 2011 and see it as the year we said to keep finning, when it could be looked at as the year that changed mankind forever.

143C8<45>A1>=I> There have been so many celebrations of Ronald Reaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th birthday, a person might easily forget how he attempted to go around Congress with the Iran-Contra scandal. Or that he persuaded people to vote against their own interests by selling us on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;trickle downâ&#x20AC;? economics theory, resulting in the first of many exorbitant tax breaks for the wealthy and beginning the first serious assault against the middle class. Or how about the way he promised less restrictive care for mentally ill people, resulting in the emptying of hospitals all over the state, only to later proclaim that, in fact, there was no money for their care. Guess by â&#x20AC;&#x153;less restrictive careâ&#x20AC;? what he really meant was â&#x20AC;&#x153;your new home is a sidewalk.â&#x20AC;? But he was such a likable guy, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he?

New trends beckon billowing blog bubbleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burst By Dan Duray

Âş

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see a blog business,â&#x20AC;? says Nick Denton over Gchat. He still isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sold on the idea of an interview regarding his site, Gawker, and seems to be attempting an escape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should find you that old post in which I compare blog ad revenues to McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s franchises; i.e., piff ling.â&#x20AC;? Ah, but surely they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ssized now? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, the McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reference was from five years ago, when I was downplaying the revenue potential of blogs,â&#x20AC;? he says, then pauses for exactly one minute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things did move on from then.â&#x20AC;? Whatever blogs have become, there seems to be universal agreement that the format that made them ubiquitousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the

reverse-chronological aggregation accompanied by commentaryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is not long for this world, and Gawkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest redesign seems to be the best evidence of that. In fact, the decline of the blog has come so quickly, one has to wonder whether we ever really liked the medium at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the beginning, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call the sites â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;blogs,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Dan Abrams, who launched his Mediaite network in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true because I always had this vision of them being more than just advertising-supported, ah, well, blogsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you know, whatever the word is.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is blogging?â&#x20AC;? asks Lockhart Steele, publisher of the Curbed network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is what Capital New York is doing, do you consider that blogging? Well, yes and no.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It always has been an embarrassing word,â&#x20AC;? the Awlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choire Sicha says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First it

was embarrassing because bloggers were these dirty, horrible people, and then it was embarrassing because our grandmas have blogs, God bless them.â&#x20AC;? The reluctance to even talk about blogs may spring from the fact that our early enthusiasm for the medium was, in the clarity of hindsight, based entirely on hypotheticals. Blogs were meant to offer untrammeled personal expression. They could turn elections. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d straight-up murder newspapers! Oh gosh, remember the Printed Blog? We even thought that owning enough of them could turn a tidy profit. In 2003, Google both debuted AdSense and purchased the Blogspot blogging platform, symptoms of the business model based on the notion that ads could target a vast audience of niche readers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We %-

were certainly much more casual about launching sites,â&#x20AC;? Denton says of those days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as we had a name and a concept, we just launched.â&#x20AC;? Somewhere between the business and personal sides of the blogging bubble were of course the bloggers themselves, sometimes pajamaed, often scoop-wielding and truly witty creatures that occasionally danced across the cover of your New York Times Magazine. If bloggers back then were no less reviled, they were at least objects of curiosity. When the micropublishing model f lopped, the game soon turned to going biggerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in this period, Gawker reversed its ban on reality stars, among other measures, to grab more readersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;competing for the largest audience in the areas, like gossip and media, known to be successes. Sites like Business Insider and Mediaite popped on the scene to compete for those everinf lating ad dollars, and this called for more bloggers. Soon, every 22-year-old with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sarah Palinâ&#x20AC;? Google alert and a dose of irony fancied himself the next Alex Balk. From the story selection to the sarcastic or hyperbolic headlines, blog content became predictable, and duller for it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sort of thing that can lead a good blogger to feel undervalued. In his November farewell post, after a five-year stint on The Atlantic blog, Marc Ambinder wrote that it will be a relief to head to The National Journal, where he will feel no compulsion to turn every piece into the opinion of â&#x20AC;&#x153;a web-based personality called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Marc Ambinderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that people read because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Marc Ambinder,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; rather than because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good or interesting.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re competitive in terms of getting something first, and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re competitive on getting a take that is close to the truth so much as it can be approximated, and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re competitive in building and keeping an inf luential and broad-based readership,â&#x20AC;? Ambinder says, speaking with exhaustion of his time on the web. With the Jason Kottkes and Andrew Sullivans already established and still working, he adds, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become increasingly difficult to carve out a niche. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at a stage now where that market is saturated, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the long tail phenomenon,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting to the point where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really, really hard once you start, unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a phenomenon or something.â&#x20AC;? This saturation of opinion drips into the personal blogging sphere as well, with Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter becoming the preferred mode for oversharing and aggregation. The astounding amount of traffic passed to websites from social networking would seem to discredit the idea that people actually like having their news surrounded by lame jokes. What happened to the famed â&#x20AC;&#x153;snarkyâ&#x20AC;? Gawker take on the news of the day? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, that will be there, of course,â&#x20AC;? Denton says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most pungent of stories will be the ones that get the most play on the front page. Writers will have to ease up on irony in headlinesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;because they will

no longer have the lede to clarify. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already been happening, because so much traffic comes from headlines distributed on Facebook and Twitter.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Social media killed the ironic blog headline,â&#x20AC;? he adds neatly. None of this is to say that Dentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s model is the way ahead for all blogs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the story of blogging in the last couple of years or more, professional blogging, is that we all do a lot more original content,â&#x20AC;? says Steele of Curbed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think by the dint of being local, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always done, but if anything, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten even more important.â&#x20AC;?

Soon, every 22-year-old with a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sarah Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Google alert and a dose of irony fancied himself the next Alex Balk If the freedom from the opinionbased aggregation model has freed blogs of their point of origin, the short-form personal blog may well encourage longer extracurricular writing. In Wired last month, Clive Thompson argued just this point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ten years ago, my favorite bloggers wrote middle takesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a link with a couple of sentences of commentaryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d update a few times a day. Once Twitter arrived, they began blogging less often but with much longer, more-in-depth essays,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. The Awl network may be a notable exception of a new online endeavor that essentially follows the old blogging method, although Sicha notes that some of the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more unique efforts have gained a surprising amount of traction. Specifically, he references the f lyaway success of their newest property, the Hairpin, which he credits to its editor, Edith Zimmerman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not aggregating blog posts about the thing that just came down the wire. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making things, and I think one of the mistakes that a lot of blogs make that kind of dead-end them as blogs is covering the same thing that everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s covering instead of like creating things and stopping to make stuff,â&#x20AC;? Sicha says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really feel like she renewed this idea in me that this should not be about covering Keith goddamn Olbermann. This should be about engaging with the thing that most fascinates me or cracks me up at two in the morning.â&#x20AC;?

ringing cake. Sure, it reads like a lost lyric from â&#x20AC;&#x153;MacArthur Park,â&#x20AC;? but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a key moment in the history of media, marketing and perhaps even marzipan. As recounted by Wired Magazine contributing editor Frank Rose in his recently released tome, The Art of Immersion: How the Digital Generation Is Remaking Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the Way We Tell Stories, the cake was part of an alternative reality game qua marketing campaign to promote the last Batman flick The Dark Knight, featuring Heath Ledger as the Joker. How a Boston couple found themselves in a bakery asking for a package that contained the cake (and a phone number scrawled upon it in icing) is too elaborate to relay, but suffice it to say, they and hundreds of thousands of other participants, online and elsewhere, were enthralled. When the couple dialed the number, a mobile phone that had been stashed inside the cake began to ring. Such was the fiendish genius of the game architects at Pasadena-based 42 Entertainment, and precisely the kind of touch the Joker himself might employ. Instructions followed, and the couple and several others whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d enjoyed similar interactions with the game eventually went on to a private teaser screening. Throughout, a legion of fans followed and aided the unlocking of various clues online, which drew them further into the narrative of not only the game but the Batman flick as well. Participatory campaigns, though not yet par for the course, are frequently being baked in (as it were) to extend narrative experiences beyond our screens and into our daily lives. Throughout his book, Rose examines dozens of such immersive entertainments and makes a compelling case that the best way to enjoy a story is perhaps from within. The inadvertent Zen notwithstanding (mine, not Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s), one way to reach an audience and have them truly internalize a story (and perhaps develop an addictive need to pony up for its various permutations) is to have it intrude on their external reality. Or their toilet stallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after all, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Nine Inch Nails brain trust Trent Reznor did to

promote his mid-aughts album Year Zero. A USB drive containing information germane to a post-apocalyptic puzzle that expounded upon the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s themes was left in a venueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restroom during a live concert. A young woman discovered the drive and realized it contained an unreleased track, which she uploaded to the web where it went viral. Moreover, the metadata of the track itself was strewn with clues to Reznorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cryptic vision. At first blanche, the notion of tracking all the curios and red herrings embedded in these projects might seem exhausting, or perhaps only the province of those with OCD. To a rabid fan, however, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a portal to a parallel universe wherein they can revel in the creation of their favorite artists, characters and stories. Prior to this shift to transmediadriven engagement, fan fiction (the unsanctioned continuation of narratives by die-hards) was where acolytes and authors shared an uneasy pas de deux. Now, some content creators prefigure the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;in-worldâ&#x20AC;? in their earliest conceptions. Like a vampire, however, this can only be achieved through invitation. Fans willingly subsume themselves into the narrative and its myriad points of interactivity (which, increasingly, unfold in a nonlinear manner) such that they essentially become co-authors of the story, motoring it along from rabbit hole to rabbit hole, uncovering clues and delivering their revelations to their online brethren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stories become games; games become stories,â&#x20AC;? writes Rose. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundamental and a likely motivator for much of the activity that swarms around a TV series like Lost, video games like Halo and pretty much anything under the banner â&#x20AC;&#x153;anime,â&#x20AC;? is a propensity not just to actively indulge in a fictional universe but to indulge in it with others. As Rose later explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stripped of the apparatus of advanced civilization and pecuniary gainâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;stripped of Hollywood and television and publishingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;storytelling is a simple act of sharing.â&#x20AC;? So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised when someone invites you to share some confectionary creative content with themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like perhaps a slice of ringing cake. Daedalus Howell left the cake out in the rain at FMRL.com.

What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dumped on Mexico By Juliane Poirier

C

oday, a friend brought over some pictures of her adopted MichoacĂĄn village, where lack of monetary wealth is offset by rich beauty, bright colors and elaborate rituals that weave together the lives of the villagers. One picture shows a bright yellow table covered with food gathered by the villagers to prepare meals for the needyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;peppers, lettuce, beansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and it looks as if everyone had raided their gardens. In those parts of Mexico without Facebook to mimic actual face-to-face connections, my friend has experienced real functional community. Part of her success as a part-time resident of Mexico is that she does not impose American culture or food on her neighbors. My friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vibrant and touching photographs contrasted starkly with the dark images conjured by the latest USDA big-bully crimes against the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food supply, and against Mexico in particular. Like my friends who have moved south on a part-time basis, I love Mexico. My spirit has been given so much by the Mexican people both here and in Mexico that I am all the more disappointed by what the United States has brought to Mexican residents, including high-fructose corn syrup, the cheap filler used in processed convenience foods. In the past few years, high-fructose corn syrup has been exposed as a major contributor to diabetes, and just like we did in decades past with our surpluses of DDT, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shipping more high-fructose corn syrup to our southern neighbors. A lot more this year, according to officialsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; estimates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corn used to produce high-fructose corn syrup is projected 15 million bushels higher, reflecting strong shipments of the cornbased sweetener to Mexico,â&#x20AC;? states the World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report of Feb. 9, 2011. This is especially troubling, as Hispanics possess a greater predisposition to developing diabetes. But all that subsidized junk corn has to go someplace. Right? Among the ironies here is that for centuries Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farming economy was maize-based. The United States changed all that. First, U.S. agribusiness infected Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ancient stock with cross-pollination from genetically modified crop strains. Then we undersold Mexican farmers in the marketplace, because our farmers get government money to grow this controversial crop.

According to UC San Diego researcher Rick Relinger, our corn exports since the North American Free Trade Agreement are directly responsible for the decline of a centuries-old farming economy in Mexico. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Competition with artificially distorted U.S. corn prices drove unsubsidized corn produced in Mexico out of its customary domestic market as Mexican consumers began to purchase American corn,â&#x20AC;? writes Relinger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mexican corn farmers were no longer able to make a sustainable living due to the plummeting demand for their produce, and accordingly migrated from rural farms to urban centers in search of employment. Therefore, American corn subsidies are primarily responsible for the rural-to-urban population shift in Mexico that manifested following the NAFTA deal in 1994.â&#x20AC;? Last week, when the USDA opened its arms (and our Midwestern fields) to the planting of another genetically modified corn seed this spring, pro-GM votes came from congressmen who had received money from Switzerlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Syngenta. Syngenta owns the GM corn seed sold under the brand Enogen that will be scattered on American soil and harvested for ethanol production, despite the expected contamination of food crops. According to a Feb. 14 MAPLight report based on data from the Center for Responsive Politics, Syngenta made contributions of $660,230 over the past decade to the campaigns of lawmakers involved with Agricultural lawmaking: â&#x20AC;&#x153;[T]wo high-ranking officials on the House Agricultural Committee . . . top Syngentaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donor list. The committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranking Democrat Collin Petersen, D-Minn., has taken in $19,500 in contributions, while committee vice-chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., has taken in $19,000. Committee chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., sits among the top 10 with $11,000 in contributions. The House Agriculture Committee is tasked with oversight of the Department of Agriculture.â&#x20AC;? I wonder how much Syngenta will make on the sale of that corn seed, subtracting the $660,000 they used to inf luence the lawmakers? In the United States, money appears to trump all other values. So when my friend showed a picture of happy kids at a ramshackle MichoacĂĄn preschool, mentioning plans to raise money for it, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raise too much.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fine without us.

Smooth Body Boutique is emerging as one of North Bay’s hidden gems for skin beauty. No longer an insider's best kept secret, Jacklyn Soto is quickly mentoring skin care regimes for confident women and men. Smooth is an upscale full service Skin and Body spa with reasonable prices. With strong word of mouth referrals from existing clients, Smooth has grown into a successful business. Beauty shows from the inside and out and her clients can testify to Jacklyn's expert touch. The convenient location in the historic Upton Building is ideal for working professionals, gym rats and downtown shoppers. Smooth offers an intimate and chic setting where guests relax and rejuvenate. The décor can best be described as industrial meets bohemian.

David was an international environmental consultant, Susan a psychotherapist; we left D.C. in 2007 to raise our daughter in Sonoma County.

Owner and Beatification Guru, Jacklyn Soto, has been transforming faces for over a decade. Jacklyn possesses true talent with Wax and knows that a beautifully shaped eyebrow can lift your whole look and bring harmony to the face. She began her beauty career as a makeup artist for an established global brand which led her to attend The Academy of Hair Design and Cosmetology, with a primary focus in Esthetics. She truly believes that skin health is the canvas for your most beautiful you. With her education and experience in tow she found her true calling with the opening of Smooth Body Boutique in 2008. Jacklyn specializes in creating flawless arches in a flash and providing bump free bikini lines in minutes with her Brazilian waxes. Smooth’s services will truly leave you looking and feeling radiant.

We have just finished building an eclectic space for our chocolate kitchen in the Teahouse, where you can now watch us make chocolates. We expanded the tea menu by 30%, added a number of new food items (try our own hummus, or the new pasta souffle.) Watch for our new selection of baked goodies. We will soon feature art by local artists. And we continue to expand our line of award-winning truffles and melt-inyour-mouth caramels.

Smooth’s services include body and facial waxing, tinting, facials and makeup for special occasions. In addition there is a licensed massage therapist on staff to soothe the senses.

For years we had talked about combining David’s love of chocolate with Susan’s passion for tea, and we wanted our shop in Sebastopol. We stumbled into the chance to buy the Infusions teahouse,and we grabbed it immediately (ask us about the story when you come in, if you'd like). The Infusions values reflect ours: community centered; relaxed pace; 100% organic teas, refined flavors and service.

6988 McKinley Street, Sebastopol (next to Whole Foods)

Come relax, savor the breadth and complexity of flavors in tea and chocolate, and enjoy life at the pace of tea.

A4E4=64>5C742DA3B his yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sonoma Cheese Conference gets off to a rolling start on Sunday, Feb. 27, with the inaugural Celebrity Cheese Roll, a wacky game involving various types of cheese wheels and a handmade purple ramp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just this off-the-wall idea that came to me out of the blue,â&#x20AC;? says Sheana Davis, founder and director of the conference, now in its ninth year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of like bowlingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just with a wheel of cheese instead of a ball.â&#x20AC;? Local politicians, cheesemakers and celebrity chefsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including Sonoma mayor Laurie Gallian, chef Justin Wangler of Kendall Jackson Estate and Ari Weinzweig, owner of Zingermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creameryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will vie for a variety of awards and, of course, the title of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Cheese.â&#x20AC;? Contestants select from a variety of cheese wheels provided to roll down the ramp, or can opt to bring their own. The Roll takes place at 1pm during the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheese, beer and winetasting at MacArthur Place in Sonoma (29 E. MacArthur St.). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a number of test runs,â&#x20AC;? says Davis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the ramp is ready to go.â&#x20AC;? For tickets, visit www.sheanadavis.com or call 707.935.7960.

Cheese also reigns supreme at the upcoming ďŹ fth annual Artisan Cheese Fair at the Sheraton hotel in Petaluma (745 Baywood Drive). The weekend-long celebration of handcrafted cheeses, foods and spirits begins on Friday, March 25, and includes a whirlwind of cheese-related experiences aimed at both educating and entertaining. Visitors to the fair can taste and buy products from cheesemakers and chefs from all over the country; partake in seminars and classes ranging from â&#x20AC;&#x153;So You Want to be a Cheesemakerâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Wonderful World of Moldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; enjoy a cheese-inspired seven-course feast prepared by renowned local chefs; and even tour a selection of nearby farms, dairies and cheese companies. More information and tickets at www.artisancheesefestival.com. For a more personal cheese experience, the Cowgirl Creameryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weekly Cheese 101: Class and Tasting in Point Reyes Station is a downright bargain. Register for $5 and spend an hour watching and learning how awardwinning cheeses are made. The class is offered every Friday at 11:30am and includes a tour of the creamery, an up-close curd-making demo and, best off all, a tasting of all the Cowgirl cheeses, including the mother of all decadent soft cheeses, the Mt. Tam Triple Cream. Classes ďŹ ll up quickly, so reservations are a must at www.cowgirlcreamery.com.

A4320A F8=42> ounded in a Beverly Hills garage at the turn of this century, Red Car pays homage to the historic electric rail system that crisscrossed the Los Angeles basin for half of the 20th. While the Los Angeles Interurban Railwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demise is usually blamed on evolving tastes, the tides of change and the like, massive public highway funding plus a systematic dismantling at the hands of auto and gas companies might not have been helpful, in retrospect. Perhaps the Volstead Act merely reďŹ&#x201A;ected consumer preference for soda pop over wine. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to say?

After a stop in Santa Maria, Red Car laid track up north to a former tractor dealership in Graton. Although to some eyes its nostalgic imagery may evoke a trend in graphically appealing, impulse-priced wines, Red Car is in fact a small, 6,000-case operation with an exclusive focus on Sonoma Coast vineyards (i.e., it has nothing to do with certain other red, combustion-engined vehicles). The remodeled tasting room is art-gallery spartan but fun, with funky furnishings from stuffed shark and vintage motorcycle seat stool to green velvet sofa.

The 2009 Boxcar Sonoma Coast Chardonnay ($23) leads the tasting with aromas of Orange Julius and white ďŹ&#x201A;owers, hinting at hydrangea, and instead of oak and butter, a welcome taste of toffeeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a nice value for a Chardonnay of this subtlety and provenance. Straightforward and appealing, the 2009 Boxcar Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($28) rolls juicy plum and black cherry fruit under vanilla, clove oil and Malbec-like plum-leather tones to a brisk ďŹ nish.

Red Carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of sales and viticulture Paul Sequeira says that their style is angled toward a European style: less forward fruit plus more complexity and structure. This shows particularly well in the 2009 Trolley Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($45). Warm and wide with potpourri, sage, thyme and cooking-fat aromas, this is a lighter-hued Pinot that puts readily identiďŹ able fruit in the background, with plenty of body and diversions up front. Due to high marks from the American Wine Awards and other press, the 2008 Boxcar Sonoma Coast Syrah ($20) is the Carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent payer, while vinted no differently from their reserves, says Sequeira. Packed with brooding blueberry, olallieberry and grape, and scented with gamey, smoked meat and clean, wet hay varietal hallmarks, this cool-climate or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Northern RhĂ´neâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201C; styled Syrah is competitive beyond its price point. Other releases include single vineyard and reserve lots.

LONGTIME LOCALS REMEMBER IT ALL TOO WELL. The roof of Robinson’s Excavating Co. floats down River Road, thwarted only by a power pole. In February of 1986, the storm would just not stop, dropping 24 inches of rain over a 10-day period. The overflowing Russian River reached a record high water level of 49 feet, 1 inch at the Guerneville Bridge, submerging the entire town and changing lives forever. Out of a house in Guerneville, a small-town publication called The Paper covered the flood, its damage and its aftermath. The Paper would eventually turn into the Sonoma County Independent and then to the North Bay Bohemian, which you hold in your hands. But the photos from the flood remain in our archives, just as clear, or sometimes clearer, than the many memories still shared about that wet, wet week. To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of what’s commonly known as “the Great Valentine’s Day Flood of 1986”— which actually lasted much longer than Valentine’s Day—we at the Bohemian have decided to dip into those archives and share some memories of the tragedy, resolve and eventual triumph that Guerneville and its surrounding areas underwent in 1986. It all started with our own curiosity upon finding the near-forgotten photo file: Who are the people in these photos? Whatever became of them? How did they persevere? Who are those kids and who did they grow up to become? Whose Volkswagen bus is that?

We never did find out who owned the bus, but after posting a handful of these photos online and asking for memories, we definitely heard from our readers. And amid the muck, the mudslides and the misery, the recurring theme told to us was that of a community coming together and working to help each other through a very rough week. That spirit is still alive in Guerneville. Some of the people in these photos are, too.

JENNETTE

EVANS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The River Rendezvous! They had burgers, hot dogs, stuff like that,â&#x20AC;? says longtime resident Jennette Evans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a bunch of pinball machines and a big basement that always flooded. It was one of the last few straight bars in town.â&#x20AC;? Evans was working at River Village when the storm hit and waters began rising. She left to go to Safeway for emergency supplies; when she tried to return on River Road, the water was halfway up the door on her van. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You know what? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going back to work,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I called work, and they said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to fire you.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Yeah.â&#x20AC;?

CONNIE

SMITH

Submerged roads like this one are a vivid memory for Forestville resident Connie Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember days and days of the rain,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were all down at Speerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market stocking up on supplies. The rain slowed down and we thought we had dodged the bullet but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider the runoff. We woke up to unpassable roadsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;propane tanks floating down River Road, National Guard amphibious vehicles creating wakes like ocean waves. The water had reached to the stop sign at the bottom of Champs de Elysses. It was a long four days before we could go anywhere.â&#x20AC;?

FRED

VON RENNER â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was doing this shuttling thing,â&#x20AC;? explains Fred Von Renner, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for about three days, all day long, because my tractor could go in high water where vehicles couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Like fellow backhoe operator Rich Dickerson, whose backhoe is pictured here, Von Renner helped pull cars out of water, but mostly he played taxi, lifting people in his loader near Vacation Beach and taking them to safety through the raging wind and waters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of local people in this community would quite often go help others,â&#x20AC;? he says, modestly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was raised that way.â&#x20AC;? Having been born in Guerneville, Von Renner had been through floods all his life. He was five years old in the great flood of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;55, just inches below 1986â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record level. His parents owned Buckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, and, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would typically move our furniture up, get hoses out as soon as the waters receded and wash everything out. We looked at it as spring cleaning. It was just a way of life on the river.â&#x20AC;?

MARY

CERVANTES

“My eldest daughter’s birthday, we woke to knee-high water covering the road, and the water was still rising,” says Mary Cervantes, pictured here. “My sister and I walked through the murky knee-high flood water to Safeway to get the birthday cake. We still had a birthday to celebrate.” The next day, they were taken in boats to the police station, then the fire station and ultimately St. Elizabeth’s church. “I think we were there two days,” she says. “There wasn’t a lot of room or food. They boiled eggs in a big metal coffee maker and passed out cold spam.”

Cervantes made it out “literally floating like a boat” through the waters in a family Suburban, reuniting with her family at the Vets Building in Santa Rosa. “We were there for a few days before we were allowed back to see if we could salvage anything,” says Cervantes, now living in Santa Rosa. “Some family photos and keepsakes were saved. Not much more than that. We had lost almost everything.”

MICHAEL

FISHER

Robert Ulivy, stunned to suddenly find himself without a home.

Michael Fisher’s band had a show booked at the River Theatre before the flood, but it was cancelled on account of power outages. Opting for the after-show party nonetheless, “We snored in drug-addled, alcoholic dreamland while the waters rose,” he writes, “and awoke the next morning to a Third World reality.” (His band’s name stayed on the marquee, being broadcast on nationwide news broadcasts all week.) After evacuating their house in a rowboat filled with their son, dog, cat and rabbit, Fisher and his wife took refuge with some nearby neighbors. With the water pipes broken, he hiked “on heavily wooded, steep-ass hillsides, high above the swollen river, to get to a pure stream for drinking water.” From the vantage point on the hill, he witnessed the river take down numerous power lines, sparking and smoking. His only way to describe the week? “An Apocalypse Now kind of feeling.”

ALEX AND JANE

TINKER’S TAPES

Betamax tapes were still relevant in 1986, and the place to rent them in Guerneville was Tinker’s Tapes. Living up to its name, Tinker’s was an all-purpose repair shop, too; anything that was broken, “Tinker” could probably fix it, and he even wrote a home-repair column in The Paper. (In the issue after the flood, he suggested readers bring him their waterlogged appliances.) Though his wife Jane lost her battle with cancer, Tinker, aka Alex, is rumored to still be living in the area. No doubt he still remembers the poster in his store window when the flood hit—right on the front windows, for the recently released Mel Gibson movie, The River.

PETER

NORTZ

Peter Nortz still lives in Guerneville and remembers being with his wife in this cemetery scene like it was yesterday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were living on River Road across from True Value Hardware; the water came up so fast we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save anything,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the big copters landed and took off, they almost blew my van over. My wife evacuated to Santa Rosa to be reunited with our daughter, I stayed at the cemetery for another two days waiting for a break to see how the house was.â&#x20AC;? When he was finally able to get back down to River Road to check on their home, his heart broke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Total devastation,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost everything.â&#x20AC;?

TOM â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;MANURE MANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

LYNCH

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;MMâ&#x20AC;? on the sweatshirt here stands for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Manure Man,â&#x20AC;? which is a nickname Tom Lynch wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever live down. Why, you ask? Because in 1985, the city of Santa Rosa was found to have dumped 750 million gallons of sewage in the Russian River, which naturally floated downstream to Guerneville. Lynch decided to give it back. One night at 3am, on a tractor with a rented spreader, he dumped manure all over the streets of four blocks of downtown Santa Rosa. Amazingly, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get arrested. A local hero was born. When the flood hit the next year, Lynch was living in a tent on Mt. Jackson, above the waters. But he spent a week helping people in town, remembering the scene vividly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were helicopters landing in front of the Guerneville Fire Department,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;PT boats going up and down the river evacuating people onto the Guerneville Bridge, National Guardsmen, people all over the place. You were expecting to see Francis Ford Coppola with a microphone, throwing napalm on the hillsides.â&#x20AC;?

St. Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church became a refuge for women and children until helicopters came.

FPcTaFPcTa4eTahfWTaT Geography of Hope Conference brings filmmakers, poet laureates, activists to celebrate our most precious natural resource By Leilani Clark

F

hile some believe in art for artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake, others insist that artists and writers hold a responsibility to engage in the world on a political level. Wallace Stegner, writer and environmentalist, definitely stood in the latter camp. In the early 1960s, Stegner wrote an impassioned letter to Congress in support of the Wilderness Act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in,â&#x20AC;? Stegner wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.â&#x20AC;? Forty-five years later, these words have inspired the creation of the Geography of Hope Conference, to be held in Point Reyes this February and March. Germinating in 2008, when Point Reyes Books owner Steve Costa began talking with local author Philip Fradkin about an event to celebrate the publication of Fradkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biography of Stegner, the idea soon morphed from a small reading event to a two-day literary conference, one that would

THE BOHEMIAN



celebrate the respected writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy while exploring the relationship between place, people and literature. This year, the conference expands to include outdoor art installations and exhibits, as well as a film festival that runs Feb. 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27. The literary component of Geography of Hope, co-chaired by former U.S. poet laureate (and Stegner student) Robert Hass and contemporary poet Brenda Hillman, runs March 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20. The theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ref lections on Water.â&#x20AC;? Costa points to the unique water features in West Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Pacific Ocean, Tomales Bay, Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Esteroâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as inspiration for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme. But he says it is the political element of water that makes it ripe for artistic interrogation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Water is one of the most important challenges that we face in terms of the future,â&#x20AC;? Costa says by phone from Point Reyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been so obsessed with oil for decades, but water is a life force.â&#x20AC;? The indie-bookstore owner is particularly excited about the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s venture into film, explaining that the selections cross the gamut from political documentaries to surf adventures: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unlike other film festivals that have a fairly broad program,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;being

able to focus specifically on water, you get a deeper appreciation of how film has been an expression of that element.â&#x20AC;? As the founding director of the Santa Cruz Film Festival, Jane Sullivan brings a wealth of experience in film curation as co-director of the Geography of Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film festival. She says that she and partner John Muller screened over 700 films, eventually narrowing them down to 70, with a mix of feature and documentary pieces. Initially, Sullivan thought the theme of water might be limiting, but the more in-depth she got into what water really is, she says, the broader the scope became: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather than only focusing on the heavy duty issues, which is certainly part of the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;dams, coal mining residue, plastics in the oceanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there is also a playful, spiritual and redemptive quality to water,â&#x20AC;? Sullivan says by phone from Inverness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the great equalizer. Every rich man and woman needs it, and every poor man and woman needs it.â&#x20AC;? Both Sullivan and Muller are aiming for dynamic panels that allow the audience to interact with the filmmakers as well as scholars, Jungian analysts and even scientific engineers. Sullivan declares that the festival is not elitist


and will feature â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyday people who have made changes in their lives.â&#x20AC;? Panelists and performers include Reverend Billy, the crazed preacher from the Church of Life After Shopping, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conducted unruly protests inside of Starbucks stores nationwide; â&#x20AC;&#x153;eco-sexualâ&#x20AC;? activist and author Annie Sprinkle; and experimental guitarist Henry Kaiser. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based physician and firsttime director Nancy Iverson produced one of the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s featured documentaries, From the Badlands to Alcatraz, which follows the journey of a group of Lakota youth in a week-long training to swim through the cold, shark-infested waters from Alcatraz to San Francisco. She will appear on a panel also featuring Lisa Waters, a woman of the Lakota tribe whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completed the swim two years straight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important to address problems and not live in a fairy tale. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to present and suggest solutions, to not just get stuck in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;overwhelm,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Iverson about the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positive aim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have to be some steps forward as well.â&#x20AC;? In keeping with the goal of exploring the relationship between people and place, the literary conference offers field trips through the wilds of West Marin, led by naturalists from the area, in addition to readings and panels with authors and poets. On opening night, poets and co-chairs Hillman and Hass will speak about ways stories are told while giving a spiritual connection and context to the weekend events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very full schedule for two days,â&#x20AC;? says Hillman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will be doing writing, talking and storytelling on these adventures.â&#x20AC;? Hillman, who calls herself a spiritual eco-poet, completed Practical Water, a collection of poems that dives into hydrology as source of sustenance, in 2009. An environmental and antiwar activist, she says that poets and writers have a responsibility to bring not only beauty but also an ethical hopefulness to the world. In a thought echoed by many of the conference organizers and participants, Hillman emphasizes the multifaceted approach of the conference and the goal of inspiring others, even if the present day is a fairly depressing time for water as a resource. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, Point Reyes is a protected space, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still possible to interact with the wilderness, with the wetlands and with the places that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t screwed up yet,â&#x20AC;? says Hillman, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to get true sustenance and immeasurable hope from the fact that we are part of the greater it, and not the main it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an amazing life and existence that we have.â&#x20AC;? The Geography of Hope Film Festival takes place Feb. 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27 at the Dance Palace Community Center. 503 B St., Point Reyes Station. The Geography of Hope Conference takes place March 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 in several locations around Point Reyes Station. Times and ticket prices vary. 415.663.1542.

New life for Sebastopol theater space By David Templeton

;

ast Sunday afternoon, immediately following the final performance of Sonoma County Repertory Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spare and lovely Cyrano, a bittersweet party broke out at the tiny Main Street theater space in Sebastopol. Marking the still hard-to-believe closing of the Rep, in mixed-emotion celebration of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 17 years in operation, nearly 200 crammed into the compact space to share memories, tell stories, trade photographsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and whisper about the future. Because, yes, the beloved little theater space at the corner of Bodega and Main Street will have a future. The rumor, passed around the party like a phrase in a game of telephone, was that a collective of local theater companies, actors, dancers, singers and teachers is to take over the space. Director Beth Craven can now confirm the rumor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theater will be renamed, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure what that name will be,â&#x20AC;? says Craven, one member of a newly formed group tentatively calling itself the Professional

Performing Artists Consortium (or P-PAC). The other members of the new organization include a number of established theater companies (Cinnabar Theater, Imaginists Theatre Collective, Napa Valley Conservatory Theater, Heritage Music Theater, FOG Theater and First Look Sonoma), plus several independent theater artists (Keith Baker, Allison Rae Baker, David Lear and others). â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a group,â&#x20AC;? Craven says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we felt very strongly that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let [the Rep theater space] die. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an institution. The thought of losing the West Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary performance space was so painful. That was the fire in the belly that got us started.â&#x20AC;? According to Craven, the consortium will be structured to be lean and mean, pooling the creative and financial resources of all members. At first, the theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only staff will be herself and Keith Baker, acting as coordinators and â&#x20AC;&#x153;communication nexusâ&#x20AC;? for the other groups using the space to present new works, and also as one stop along an emerging theater circuit, that idea being one of the more interesting pieces of the new plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With certain exceptions, Sebastopol people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to Petaluma to see theater,â&#x20AC;? says Craven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Petaluma people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to Sonoma, and Sonoma people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to shows in Santa Rosa. Our idea is to create a circuit where, instead of every theater busting its ass to stage eight or 12 shows in a season, each company could build four shows or six shows, and then make their space available to other companies, so the theater ends up with 12 shows. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the embryo of the idea that we are working with. A company can put up a show, and then take it on the road to Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Napa. And the Rep space will be a big part of that circuit.â&#x20AC;? The first show at the Sebastopol theater, to a certain degree, is an example of that concept. In May, under the direction of Jennifer King (longtime associate with the Rep, and currently artistic director of the Napa Performing Arts Center), the space will host a production of Yasmina Rezaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Art, featuring Dodds Delzell, Tim Kniffin and Tim Setzer, the same cast and director who recently staged the play at Sixth Street Playhouse and in Napa. The play will run May 13â&#x20AC;&#x201C;29. To kick things off, there will be what Craven calls a â&#x20AC;&#x153;curtain raiserâ&#x20AC;? event the last weekend of April, featuring a performance or two of Woody Guthrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American Song (directed by Craven and recently staged at Cinnabar), along with some as-yet-unnamed musical events. There are, Craven says, no existing models on which the new Consortium structure is based. Whatever the new theater is called, and however it ends up being structured, she admits that the alliance will be forging into new territory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a rich idea,â&#x20AC;? Craven says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to work together, sharing resources as we create exceptional theater together.â&#x20AC;? The best part, Craven repeatsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and this is a sentiment that surely will be shared by the army of Rep fans who gathered to honor that companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long legacyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is that there will still be a theater in Sebastopol. It may no longer be called the Sonoma County Repertory Theater, but the little theater on the corner will, for the foreseeable future, be keeping its lights on.

n Barcelonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rugged Santa Coloma district, Uxbal (Javier Bardem) has learned that he has stage-four prostate cancer. But the handsome Catalonian has much more on his insufficiently washed plate as well: his estranged wife, Marambra (Maricel Ă lvarez), is a promiscuous bipolar case whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way too friendly with Uxbalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Tito (Eduard FernĂĄndez). His father is about to be evicted to make way for real estate development. His two children are growing up neglected. Seeing the end in sight, Uxbal works night and day in various dodgy activities. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a liaison man between the neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeming illegal immigrants and the cut-rate employers who hire them. Moreover, Uxbal is psychic. He reluctantly takes some money on the side, transcribing parting words from the newly deceased. The slim Ă lvarez has a beguiling nose, and when she rubs it near Bardemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Roman beak, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visual harmony at work. But director Alejandro GonzĂĄlez Iùårritu lets us know how out of control Marambra is too early on. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a chance to be enchanted by her before we find out sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbalanced. We first see her waking up Tito early in the morning by dancing topless on his back and spilling red wine over him. The wine cascade turns out to be a visual rhyme with the bloody urine Uxbal keeps spouting as his disease progresses. The beauty here of anything but rotâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; blood, polluted skies, greasy alleys in the morningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is either missing or marked with bruises. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exception: an incident where Uxbal is startled by a flock of starlings

as he stands on a freeway overpass. As for the city itself, Barcelonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coast might as well be as far away as Borneo. The only beach we see is awash in cadavers. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one sunset over the water, and the sun is diffracted into the shape of a rising mushroom cloudâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in a word, doom. In the press notes for Biutiful, Iùårritu sounds like the star of the Dos Equis beer commercials, the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Most Interesting Man: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Modern society suffers, among many things, from a profound thanatophobia.â&#x20AC;? Is that a fact? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually fear of life, not death, audiences are accused of; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take risks, that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re slaves to corporate death culture. The death-defying qualities of cinema (a glowing afterlife for that long deceased actress, an action heroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magic escape from the reaper) help to cope with the inevitable. In its faith in a life to comeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a hushed dream world of snow and treesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Biutiful rigs the game a little. Who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t endure the horrors of the world if they have proof of heaven? There is no fun, dirty or otherwise, for the poor residents of the neighborhood Iùårritu rhapsodizes about in the press notes. No relief, either in music or color or sex. At a scene in a strip club, with mutant dancers decorated with extra nipples on their asses, Biutiful stretches its world-is-a-ghetto point right into straight disgustorama. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Biutifulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; continues its run at the Century Regency (280 Smith Ranch Road, San Rafael; 415.479.6496) and Rohnert Park 16 (555 Rohnert Park Expwy., Rohnert Park; 707.586.5996). It opens Friday, Feb. 25, at Summerfield Cinemas (551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa; 707.522.0719) and Cameo Cinema (1340 Main St., St. Helena; 707.963.9779).

Like working in the wine industry after Sideways or working in a record store after High Fidelity, it must be incredibly strange to be dancing in a ballet troupe after the widespread hullabaloo over Black Swan. Can you imagine trying to explain your trained craft to someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply imagining you as Mila Kunis? Fortuitously, Alonzo Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LINES ballet company is daring, creative and modern enough to separate itself from the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional styles; see them in action on Saturday, Feb. 26, at the Lincoln Theatre. 100 California Drive, Yountville. 8pm. $39â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $49. 707.944.9900.

Although a successful financier and billionaire, Warren Hellman is still known to most as the guy who lovably bankrolls the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park every year. He converted to the things in life that really matter, he says, when â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;important investment bankerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was an oxymoron.â&#x20AC;? He now devotes most of his time trying to learn the banjo in the style of his heroes like Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson, and seems perfectly thrilled to spend untold dollars on his festival. He speaks and makes self-deprecating jokes on Wednesday, Feb. 23, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley. 7pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 415.383.9600.

As a kid, Josh Ritter heard Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girl from the North Country,â&#x20AC;? picked up the nearest stringed instrument and began to write songs. Too bad the instrument was a lute! A trip to Kmart resulted in his first guitar, and in the years since, Ritter has released six acclaimed albums, toured with the stars of Once, been nominated as one of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;100 Greatest Living Songwritersâ&#x20AC;? by Paste Magazine and endured many tiresome jokes about John Ritter from Threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Company. He plays on Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 7pm. $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$40. 707.259.0123.

Rippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kids As a precursor to Fat Tuesday, the Raven Theater this weekend gets greasy with a benefit called Funk for Life. Sandwiched by the Speakeasy Saints from Humboldt and the Funk Revival Orchestra, a smoking 10-piece band from Oakland with New Orleans locals, is the guitarist Maxx Cabello Jr. Having toured up and down the West Coast, Cabelloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawn compliments from John Lee Hooker and Guitar Shorty for his take-no-prisoners groove. He lights up the blues-lovinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wine country when Funk for Life goes off on Tuesday, March 1, at the Raven Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 7pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.395.0124.

Believe in Love

Around the middle of the last decade, reggae singers stopped feeling the need to prove their authenticity by living in Trenchtown or recording at Studio One. As the most mainstream example, the Hasidic reggae singer Matisyahu was more a curiosity than an eye-opening talent, whereas German-born Gentleman captured the undivided attention of true reggae fans immediately. One need only watch his video for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Send a Prayerâ&#x20AC;? or hear â&#x20AC;&#x153;True Loveâ&#x20AC;? to gauge his purity of heart, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won over festivals coast to coast with his infectious songs and firm delivery. See him in a rare small club date on Thursday, Feb. 24, at Chrome Lotus. 501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 9pm. $25. No phone.

In the early 1990s, the pop-punk stew simmered thick with bands like Screeching Weasel, Fifteen and Zoinks. Adding their own spice to the prevailing mix were Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Invalids, who brought the drudges of suburbia, doses of self-doubt and a healthy obsession with Oly, manga and girls along. A brief signing to Lookout Records gave a dose of fame before disbanding, but now reformed, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just released a new album, Still Sick. How does it sound? Exactly like the old Invalidsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is to say, totally awesome. They celebrate the record release on Saturday, Feb. 26, at the Share Exchange. 531 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8pm. $5. 707.331.6850.

Eleqtroniqa artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s siq-as-fuq style ubstep is hip, and Freq Nasty knows it. In his 11plus years in the musiq industry, the Fiji-born, New Zealandâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;raised producer has sqipped from popular style to popular style to stay ahead of the qurve, from 1998â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funqy, Daft Punqâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;influenced FreQ-a-Zoid to 2004â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bring Me the Head of FreQ Nasty, which many believe cemented his status as a pioneer of the nu-sqool breaqs genre. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise then that Nasty has adopted the womp-womp stylings of dubstep, the grimy, bass-heavy subgenre of eleqtroniqa that originated in South East London and has exploded in popularity over the last year, for his latest tunes. Qoincidentally, Nasty is qonsidering qulture beyond dubstep. While debates rage over whether or not Britney Spears will qill dubstepâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;her latest single â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hold It Against Meâ&#x20AC;? boasts a 30-seqond wobble-bass breaqâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nasty is evolving. His Wiqipedia page informs readers that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pioneer of â&#x20AC;&#x153;futurestep,â&#x20AC;? a sound that allows for more variety and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t revolve solely around the ubiquitous breaq beat. As Nastyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity growsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played Glastonbury Festival and is a Burning Man veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s using his qonneqtions for more than producing the latest siq beat. Qind-hearted Nasty established Giveback.net in 2008, a charity pledging to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bring together musiq and love for positive change,â&#x20AC;? where musicians donate musiq to raise money for their qause of choice. Since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inception, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worqed with Michael Franti to raise money to build a reqording studio in Hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point, and teamed up with Bassneqtar to raise over $8,000 for the Tibetan Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Uprising Movement. Freq Nasty plays with Marty Party and Opiuo on Thursday, Feb. 24, at the Mystiq Theatre. 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. Tiqets $21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$26. 707.765.2121.

Quicksilver guitarist remembered in DVD set By Bruce Robinson

9

ohn Cipollina played in a lot of bands. Quicksilver Messenger Service remains the best known, of course, but the lean, intense guitarist from Mill Valley also led or gigged with more than two dozen other, mostly short-lived groups, from Copperhead, Terry and the Pirates and Raven to the Dinosaurs and an early edition of Zero. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw them all,â&#x20AC;? recalls Antonia Cipollina, Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger sister (by nine years) and the force behind Recoil, a newly released tripleDVD set that makes a compelling case for his musical legacy. It leads off with the 1991 documentary Electric Guitarslinger, hastily produced for screening at the Mill Valley Film Festival not long after his death from emphysema at the age of 45. Along with archival interview clips with Cipollina himself, it offers early memories from his twin sister and their mother, along with comments from a host of musical associates. The documentary also has a fascinating section in which Cipollinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unusual techniqueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;combining finger picks with aggressive use of the whammy bar on his favorite guitarsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is explained and demonstrated. Disc two of the package includes

interviews with a long list of Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical contemporaries, among them Jerry Garcia, Barry â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Fishâ&#x20AC;? Melton, Occidentalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Gravenites, Merl Saunders and Jack Casady, while the final disc consists entirely of concert videos, most of them never before available. This footage captures John performing with a half-dozen different lineups, from the Dinosaursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appearance at the 1987 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer of Loveâ&#x20AC;? 20th anniversary festival all the way back to a 1973 Winterland jam. A remarkable rarity is the clip from a 1974 San Francisco date when Cipollina sat in with one of his earliest influences, Link Wray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Link and John had a really special friendship,â&#x20AC;? his sister says. The two were introduced to each other by bassist Hutch Hutchinson, then part of Copperhead, who surprised John by having Link show up unannounced at his house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They immediately became friends and started playing together,â&#x20AC;? Antonia adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can see in the footage how excited [John] is to be able to be playing with his idol.â&#x20AC;? But finding usable film of the original Quicksilver proved more elusive. Even after a new remastering job, courtesy of Wolfgangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vault, which owns and shared much of the performance film featured in the DVD set, the loose version of the signature Quicksilver song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who Do You Love,â&#x20AC;? is â&#x20AC;&#x153;still pretty iffy,â&#x20AC;? Antonia offers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it was all we could get of Quicksilver. The old stuff, just four guys without Dino [Valente], was so flashy with the strobe lights you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see enough of the band to get anything. So we had to move to the next era, when Dino was part of it, which I would have liked to avoided, but we had no choice.â&#x20AC;? As that comment suggests, the demise of Quicksilverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which continued without John after Valente joined and, some say, commandeered the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;left a bitter aftertaste. Aside from a comfortable, laughter-laced interview with founding band mate David Freibergâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and brief comments from Gary Duncan and short-time QMS member Nicky Hopkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the history of that seminal band is deemphasized in favor of recollections of Cipollinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personality, his quirks and talents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a soft, gentle man with an amazingly wicked sense of humor, very smart. He could tell amazing stories,â&#x20AC;? Antonia remembers wistfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people have a sense of rock and rollers as being kind of down and dirty, but John was not that type of guy at all. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a womanizer. He was kind, he listened and liked to talk.â&#x20AC;? Cipollina especially liked to talk about his gear, such as the monster multiamp set-up he invented, notable for the row of brass horns that glistened atop it. Even while Quicksilver was going strong, Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of playing led him into a burgeoning schedule of sessions with other musicians, in situations as varied as the folk duo Brewer and Shipley, jazzman Charles Lloyd and Welsh hard rockers Man. Ready to play almost anytime the opportunity arose, Cipollina touched an uncountable number of other musicians, serving as a unusually accessible mentor and inspiration to many. But despite that, his sister sighs, her voice touched with pride, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nobody yet who could sound like John.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Recoilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is available at www.johncipollina.com.

n Hebrew, simcha means â&#x20AC;&#x153;celebration,â&#x20AC;? and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect word to describe the festival that the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Sonoma County presents this weekend. In its 17th year, Simcha Sunday takes place in Santa Rosa to celebrate all things Jewish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be a fun day for people of all ages,â&#x20AC;? says Karen Gould, head person in charge of the event, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be Jewish to come.â&#x20AC;? New this year is the JCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration with KlezCalifornia, a nonprofit organization that produces hands-on cultural events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The festival will host lively musical performances, participatory dancing, games and a youth program for the little bubalas. In addition, KlezCalifornia will host workshop sessions featuring klezmer dance lessons, Yiddish song learning, lectures and discussions. (Each session is an extra charge per person.) Jewish food, of course, is abundant, including hot dogs, bagels, knishes and kugel, with free scoops of Straus Family Creameryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic ice cream. And starting at 4pm, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a klezmer music and dance party, with live music provided by the internationally renowned group Veretski Pass. With only a violin, a cello and an accordion, the fun, fast-paced music of Veretski Pass represents the epitome of Jewish culture. Simcha Sunday is a great opportunity for families to enjoy each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company and learn a bit about Jewish history and Yiddish culture. Bring your abba, your bubbe, and circle up to a giant â&#x20AC;&#x153;shalom!â&#x20AC;? at Simcha Sunday on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building. 1351 Maple Ave., Santa Rosa. Noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; 5:30pm. $5. 707.528.4222. Mira Stauffacher
