Rhapsodies Save the Humans Standing up against Smart Meters BY SONOMA COUNTY CITIZENS AGAINST WIRELESS RADIATION


hat an interesting idea! We have “Save the Dolphins, Whales, Planet, Ecosystem, Animals,” and many other such groups. How is it possible that we are willing to care for salamanders but not for our fellow human beings, whose health is being compromised by society’s obsession with the personal conveniences of wireless, radiation-emitting technology?

Smart meters and other wireless, radiation-emitting technologies are causing many of us, at least 3 to 15 percent of the population, according to California Department of Health’s statistics, to develop electromagnetic hypersensitivity—or worse. Why are people being marginalized, made sick and forced to become environmental refugees? Many have had to leave their homes in search of a new place to live without wireless radiation. This has become almost impossible with the advent of smart meters. There is mounting evidence from the US Army, scientists and physicians going back to the 1950s showing the effects of wireless electromagnetic radiation on the human body at a cellular level. In May, the World Health Organization and the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans based on an increased risk for gliomas, which are malignant types of brain cancer associated with wireless phone use. Mobile phone use is listed in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as DDT, lead, engine exhaust and chloroform. Cell towers, wi-fi, smart meters, DECT phones, cordless phones and other wireless devices emit the same non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones. Some of the other adverse health effects include depression, cardiovascular disorders, sterility, autism, neurodegenerative diseases, leukemia, strokes, breast cancer, brain cancer, acoustical neuromas, breathing dysfunctions, confusion, ear pain, tinnitus, headaches and many other symptoms. We are calling on you, “the People,” to help protect the health of all members of our communities from the exponentially increasing danger of electromagnetic radiation. Write to your state and federal legislators, the California Public Utilities Commission and the governor, asking them to stop the smart meter program and adopt the precautionary principle toward all forms of wireless radiation. Sonoma County Citizens Against Wireless Radiation is a group of retired teachers, parents, grandparents and concerned citizens. We welcome your contribution. To have your topical essay of 350 words considered for publication, write

Time for Healing, Not Bickering

Bravo to Christina Julian (“Beams of Honor,” July 6). I don’t see why this is a controversial issue. If you were offered steel from the World Trade Center to honor the dead from 9-11, and had free shipping, a downtown site and an artist with a good design, wouldn’t you accept the offer too? It’s not costing the city of Napa any money to build this sculpture, and if the Napa Valley Register wants people to donate money to build a WWII memorial instead, maybe they can host some fundraisers themselves. People have different reactions to tragedy, and some could think the sculpture is tacky, but every public art project ever made has been called tacky by at least some people. It’s art, and it’s all subjective. I vote that the memorial gets built, and the healing begin.


I do not have children or a husband, nor am I in my 20s, but I see no reason to sniff my nose at women in those categories.


Radio, Radio I’m not sure what NPR has to do with the issue (“Bumper,” June 22). My understanding is that American Public Media and National Public Radio are competitors in providing programming to public radio stations. There are, in fact, no NPR stations; there are only public radio stations that buy both NPR programs and some APM programs. People generically refer to these stations as NPR stations, but they’re wrong. My understanding is that NPR had nothing to do with any of this.

BRUCE WINN Pittsfield, Mass.

R. Kelly Pencil Drawing of the Week

Jane Austen Is Rolling in Her Grave The tone of this article (“Twitterature,” June 22) suggests that a woman who has a husband and children cannot be taken seriously, is not intelligent, and is someone that would best be ignored. It suggests that young women in their 20s are ignorant and tasteless. The internet and Twitter have really opened up a world for women in these groups who do not have to answer to the prejudice held against them that they are unintelligent, inconsequential creatures. Their opinions and voices are making a difference, and if it puts more control into their hands to affect society, all the power to them.

When You’re Rich


California Democrats last month closed the remainder of what had been a gaping budget deficit by a combination of deep spending cuts, optimistic revenue projections and new fees that are sure to be challenged in court. This will include $100 million in cuts to the in-home services program. When you’re rich and lose money on a leveraged investment, you are a victim of the bad economy and deserve to be bailed out; when you’re poor and lose money on a risky investment, you’re a financially incompetent yahoo who chases get-rich-quick schemes.

S. Brian Willson’s autobiography Blood on the Tracks contains harrowing descriptions of his time in the Vietnam War— experiences that catapulted Willson into the life of a nonviolent peace protestor and pacifist. His story entered the national consciousness when both of his legs were severed by a U.S. government munitions train during a nonviolent blocking action. “I have continued to be active in educating about the continued destructive arrogant attitudes and policies of the ‘American’ civilization,” says Willson in the book, “while promoting a radical paradigm alternative.” S.

Color Me Badd END CREDITS Film projectionists like the Roxy Theater’s Bonnie Zaft are finding their expertise replaced by hard drives.

The Last Reel

As theaters convert to digital, film projectionists become a dying breed BY BLAKE MONTGOMERY


alking into the projection booth of Santa Rosa’s Roxy Theater, reels of film, cans of WD-40 and specialty tools litter the workspace. Projectors hum comfortably while 35mm film flaps through the pulleys and onto giant platters. Scissors, tape and

splicing mechanisms sit amid clippings of film at a nearby desk. But soon, this will all be gone. This is the last day the Roxy is showing film. By press time, all the film projectors will have been replaced by digital projectors, screening content from hard drives. “I’ve been fighting it for a long time,” says Bonnie Zaft, the Roxy’s head projectionist, walking past

giant reels of film, the theater’s last. “But at some point, you have to embrace change.” Zaft has been working with film for 18 years, and is known in local theater circles as one of the best film projector technicians around. But like so many other projectionists across the country, she’ll soon find her skill set obsolete. The conversion from film to digital projection is part ) 10 of a nationwide trend.

After months of what Pizza Orgasmica owner Taylor Maia describes as “ongoing relentless persecution” from color-offended neighbors, the Marin Planning Commission has decreed that the Brazilian-born proprietor must tone down the bright yellow shades of his San Rafael pizza joint. While countries like Paris and Mexico flaunt and celebrate vividly painted buildings, adventurous design aesthetics evidently don’t cut it in San Rafael, where the paint—and the restaurant’s name—has been called “racy.” A resigned Maia was quoted as saying that he would not appeal the Planning Commission’s mandate of a lighter, flatter shade, and that Pizza Orgasmica could be painted “any color the city wants . . . it does not matter to us.” Thus ends months of conflict, with the prospect of yet another shade of beige in downtown San Rafael. —Leilani Clark

Theaters ( 9 Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox and Paramount all began delivering movies on digital hard drives years ago, slowly phasing out bulky, heavy film containers and their high shipping costs. “When the three major studios went digital, it was only a matter of time until they stopped shipping prints altogether,” Zaft says. Studios still send film prints to theaters that haven’t upgraded yet, but most everyone agrees that it’s only a matter of time before they stop making film entirely, with some estimates as soon as three years from now. The Roxy isn’t the first local theater to convert to digital projection. Theaters in Sonoma, Petaluma, Sebastopol and Fairfax, owned by Cinema West, all use digital exclusively. More common is a mix of both film and digital. The Smith Rafael Film Center still maintains film projectors for about half its theaters. Richard Peterson, director of programming, sees film as a diversifying agent for the theater. “Film has been around for a hundred years,” Peterson explains. “And if I want to show a movie from the 1940s that hasn’t been digitized, the only way I can do that is on 35mm. The theaters that only want to show new movies will have to go digital, but we’re going to keep showing old ones.” As with any analog-digital debate, aesthetics are an issue as well. “I think film looks better. A lot of people disagree with me,” Zaft says. “But if you stand about halfway in the theater, you can see little pixels on the screen.” But environmentally, digital projection makes sense. A twohour movie requires about 11,000 feet of film—film that’s created using dwindling silver and oil resources. Recycling the film requires a complicated process that few studios use. Hard drives, while using more heavy metals than film, can hold new content and are recycled more easily, though they’re not as easily repaired if something goes awry. “If we have a problem with the digital projector, we turn it off,

turn it back on,” Zaft says. “If that doesn’t work, it’s a bad part—we have to wait weeks. For the film projectors, you could usually shove something in there and get it running.”

‘If I want to show a movie from the 1940s that hasn’t been digitized, the only way I can do that is on 35mm.’ Economically, the shift is much more favorable for the studios. To produce an 80-minute movie on film, it costs the studio between $1,500 and $2,500, whereas a hard drive costs a fraction of that. Shipping costs are also significantly lowered. For a theater, however, implementing the digital apparatus can cost up to $150,000. That could leave smaller one-screen theaters struggling if and when studios abandon film altogether. Admittedly, though, film has its complications. “On Christmas Eve, an assistant dropped a three-hour movie on the ground, and it was just everywhere,” Zaft illustrates by tugging at a now-defunct reel of film on the repair tables. “It took us about four or five hours to put it back together. So, yeah, if somebody drops the movie, and you have to put it back together, that’s the worst,” says Zaft, working at the central controlling computer for the new digital projectors. “That said, I’ve been trying to load Cars 2 for four hours today.” All in all, Zaft misses the familiarity of the whirring reel. “Downstairs in the projection room, you can’t hear anything,” she describes. “The actual projector itself makes no noise. It’s really creepy.”

Re-dreaming social justice in America BY JULIANE POIRIER


child of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, I ďŹ nd it hard to embrace terms like â&#x20AC;&#x153;American dream,â&#x20AC;? even when a brilliant guy like Van Jones invites me to join the American Dream Movement. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve emotionally segregated the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;dreamâ&#x20AC;? since the Rev.

As you read this, I am in socialist Sweden with my 10-year-old son, who will be seeing the world outside the United States for the ďŹ rst time. Over here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clean, people have enough to eat, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal to hike on anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to drink from the streams.

was mesmerized by the ďŹ rst lunar landing. But it could not eclipse the horrors of the previous summer when Robert Kennedy was assassinated, just months after Dr. King. This was how I understood my country then: we landed white men (women and minorities excluded) on the moon; we drafted men (women excluded, male minorities included) to ďŹ ght in a senseless war; and outspoken advocates of justice got murdered. Yet back then, my country was making social investments like those still made by Swedes. According to former labor secretary Robert Reich, â&#x20AC;&#x153;America used to invest a big portion of [its] economy in the future prosperity of all Americansâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;meaning schools, public health, highways, public transportation, parks and research. According to Reich, in a video endorsing the American Dream Movement, we are still living off those investments. But not for much longer. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, on July 16 and 17, the American Dream Movement is sponsoring house meetingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; gatherings of friends and neighbors in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homes to build a grassroots effort toward reclaiming the idea of an American dream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing we have in America thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique to America,â&#x20AC;? says Reich, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is our peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;our brains, our health, our public research and our infrastructure. If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invest in these, we threaten our prosperity and that of our kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and our grandkidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Organizing sponsor MoveOn claims we can create a peoplecentered ďŹ x for the economy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;an all-new contract for the American dream.â&#x20AC;? The present contract exploits the poor to enrich the wealthyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pure social injustice. So to attend an American dream house meeting this weekend is to stand up, as Dr. King did. In these times, social justice means economic justice, and for that we must join our fellow Americans and together create a fair economic plan.

PATIO PLEASANTRIES Chef Greg Hallihan once catered for Bonnie Raitt before opening his West County restaurant.

Forestville Flavor Sarah’s Forestville Kitchen: eclectic tastes in casual setting BY SUZANNE DALY


he shady brick courtyard of Sarah’s Forestville Kitchen is packed with diners enjoying the dappled shade of the huge tree and listening to a jazz trio while eating Sunday brunch. Greg Hallihan, chef and owner, welcomes the end of the rainy season, happy to see customers at the bar and tables inside and out. “I like

to tell people to come out and sit under the big tulip tree with a good friend or two or three or four,” says Hallihan, “and have a nice meal.” Hallihan’s culinary passion began as a five-year-old, when his family went out for Chinese food. “I thought Chinese hot mustard was the best thing in the world,” he laughs. “My mom was a terrible cook and couldn’t even fry an egg. Becoming interested in cooking was more of a survival thing.”

By age 14, Hallihan was washing dishes for Vladimir’s Czech Restaurant in Inverness, his hometown. During college he cooked at various restaurants, but “moved up the ladder” by enrolling in the California Culinary Academy and graduating with honors. New Orleans beckoned with a threemonth externship at Brigtsens, a Creole restaurant, followed by three years at Maui’s Ritz Carlton. Returning to the North Bay, Hallihan worked on the west

Sonoma County food circuit as a sous chef at both the Willowside Cafe and Cafe Lolo in Santa Rosa. He also ran a catering company and took to the road with Bonnie Raitt during her “Nick of Time” tour. Soon after returning, he met Sarah Burkdoll while catering a dinner at her home. The two became friends, and Burkdoll urged him to start a restaurant. The result was Stella’s Cafe, which opened in 1999 to rave reviews and packed houses. Hallihan moved westward again, this time landing in Forestville’s center. Sadly, while Hallihan was renovating his new restaurant, Burkdoll died after a long illness. Sarah’s Kitchen, which opened in May of last year, is named in her memory. Sarah’s offers lunch, brunch and dinners that reflect the chef’s love for ethnic food. “I like eclectic food with different flavors,” Hallihan enthuses. Menu specialties include a Vietnamese salad ($9.95) with crispy veggies, papaya, peanuts and a spicy sesame ginger dressing; fish tacos ($8.95) with Bodega Bay red snapper; and a truffled egg salad sandwich with asiago cheese and crumbled bacon, a touch of French influence. “As long as it’s different and I can switch it around, that’s my passion,” says Hallihan. “Eating the same thing all the time is not too much fun.” Hallihan hopes to keep the menu affordable (the highestpriced item is $18.95), while adding more small plates, theme nights and more live music. Winemaker dinners are offered several times per year. “Nothing makes me happier than a braised short rib with garlic mashed potatoes and a big glass of zinfandel,” says Hallihan. “I love the social aspect of cooking.” Sarah’s Forestville Kitchen, 6566 Front St., Forestville. 707.887.1055.

Most reviews by James Knight. Note: Those listings marked ‘WC’ denote wineries with caves. These wineries are usually only open to the public by appointment.

SONOMA CO U N TY Annapolis Winery Decades before the cool Sonoma Coast became hot property, the Scalabrini family quietly planted their vineyards high above the coastal fog. Small, family-run, and a popular wedding spot; the Gewürz sells out fast. 26055 Soda Springs Road, Annapolis. Open daily. 707.886.5460.

Arista Winery Nothing big about the wine list, just style-driven, focused wines. 7015 Westside Road, Healdsburg. Tasting room open daily, 11am–5pm. 707.473.0606. Balletto Vineyards Some of the best values from the Russian River Valley, in Chard and Pinots both Gris and noir. Being out of the touring loop, it’s generally a low-key place that picks up a bit on weekends. 5700 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa. Open daily, 10am–4pm. 707.568.2455.

Cellar No. 8 Historic Italian Swiss Colony at Asti revived as a rechristened timecapsule.

John Tyler Wines


he ingenuous winetaster may not realize, on passing glance, that this brand-new tasting room tucked into a dell off Westside Road is very much more than the latest iteration of a contemporary trend. What makes the difference between a dream and a third-generation winegrowing concern of international acclaim? Time, good timing, and good grapes.

Santa Rosa native Charles Bacigalupi settled into a dentistry practice in town. Dreaming of country life, he purchased benchland vineyards above the Russian River in the 1950s, then turned to his clients for advice. Paul Heck, who had recently purchased Korbel, advised—as best he could in between gargling, surmises granddaughter Katey Bacigalupi—that he replace the old Chenin Blanc with Chardonnay, using budwood from Karl Wente. He did, and grapes from that vineyard composed a good portion of Chateau Montelena’s Chardonnay that won the famous “Judgment of Paris” tasting in 1976. Napa generally gets the credit for that, but Katey and twin sister Nicole are quick to point to a copy of the original weigh tag from 1973 that’s displayed in the tasting room, below watercolors painted by their great-grandmother, Olive, in the 1940s and 50s. Depicting redwoods, historic wineries and a scene of downtown Healdsburg that looks as fresh as yesterday—vintage truck and all—her paintings offer both a window to the past, and a mirror for the present. Wine country watercolors? Dentists longing to rusticate amid the vineyards? Wine country hasn’t changed so much, after all. A website and blog, of course, keep us up-to-date on what is new. Katey and Nicole are the new face of the family business, energetically building the brand while participating in nextgeneration events like Single Vineyard Night, and staffing the family-run tasting room. On the odd weekend, grandfather Charles may lend a hand, too. Most Bacigalupi grapes go to long-time buyers, including Williams Selym. John Tyler wines (named for vineyard owner John Bacigalupi and winemaker Tyler Heck) are offered in mini verticals of Pinot and Zin. Most are aged in neutral oak and released several years after the local norm. The 2004 Russian River Valley, Bacigalupi Vineyard Pinot Noir ($52) shows graceful aging with orange peel, rhubarb and pepper jelly; the 2006 Pinot Noir ($45), earthy, Burgundian aromas of hay, cinnamon stick with cherry, pepper jelly flavors and wide, fine dry finish; while the 2006 Zinfandel ($38) has a minty, sweet herbal aroma that I just can’t place—is it anise, plus rose hip and dried raspberry? While the aroma haunts, the finish is dense, not hot; an agreeable table Zin with some ineffable extra. Old World twists on old California clones from a brand-new winery. John Tyler Wines, 4353 Westside Road, Healdsburg. Open daily, 10:30am to 5pm. Tasting fee, $10. 707.473.0115.—James Knight

Who can possibly turn their back on Harry Potter?

Growing Up E

very generation has its defining moments. In the same way folks of a certain age remember exactly where they were when J.F.K. was shot or when they watched Princess Diana walk down the aisle, I remember where I was at 10 minutes to 8am on July 21, 2007: the parking lot of a Target, off I-5, somewhere in the Central Valley. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the last book in the Harry Potter series, came out the summer after my sophomore year of college. I had an older boyfriend, and that weekend we were meeting a group of his friends in Lake Tahoe to celebrate his birthday. I spotted the bullseye from the freeway and insisted that, no, I was not joking, we had to pull off right now. When we drove up, there was already a handful of bleary-eyed, pajamapanted individuals queued up, presumably because they couldn’t wait until their pre-ordered copies arrived in the mail to start the final chapter of a saga that, if they were like me, had spanned exactly half their lives. People who have never known the magic of J. K. Rowling’s world, like my boyfriend behind the wheel that morning, sometimes have a hard time understanding the devotion the books have inspired in longtime fans. To truly understand what it meant to grow up with Harry Potter, you have to start at the beginning.


was 10 years old in 1997. I liked Hanson, the Spice Girls and the movie Titanic. Ten going on 11 was the same age, incidentally, of the boy wizard protagonist of a new book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, released that year in Britain. It didn’t come out in the States until a year later, and it was still another year before the book battled its way past MTV’s Total Request Live, Tamagotchis, Britney Spears and Blink-182 and into my pre-teen consciousness. I don’t remember the first time I heard about Harry Potter, but I’m sure my response was to roll my eyes and say something along the lines of, “There is no such thing as magic. Sheesh! Call me when the mail comes. My copy of Seventeen should be here today and Topanga from Boy Meets World is on the cover this month.” Like just about every other middle schooler in the history of middle school, I spent the majority of those three years wanting, and waiting impatiently, to be older and cooler than I was, mining the pages of teen magazines for clues (“Get Glam Hair and Makeup!” “Quiz: Is He Crushing Back?”) on how to reach that pinnacle of sophistication. I initially dismissed Harry Potter out-of-hand because of the childish cover, a goofy pastel cartoon of a dorky kid with thick glasses falling off of a broomstick. I wasn’t totally sure what cool was, but I knew that guy wasn’t it. Bowing to parental prodding, though, I eventually picked up the book. The first thing I learned was that on Harry’s 11th

birthday, he is informed that he’s a wizard and whisked from the cupboard under the stairs to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Eleven years old is the upper limit for magic—by that age, there’s no more Santa Claus, no Easter Bunny, superheroes are fiction and magicians are merely masters of deceit. For people my age, Rowling’s book came along at precisely the right time, reintroducing us to imagination at the exact moment that magic was being drained from our world. Instead of telling us to spurn make-believe, Rowling showed us its utility, creating a world that was expansive, crafted with rich detail and populated with characters we related to. We were allowed to immerse ourselves in it, and we did. Once I started, I devoured books one, two and three in almost immediate succession. When the fourth book came out, the summer before I entered high school, I attended the first of what would turn out to be several midnight release parties over the years.


ept. 11, 2001, fell on the second Tuesday of my freshman year, and the sheer impact of the day seemed to shatter whatever concept I had of how things were or would ever be. When the next book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, came out in 2003, it reflected the changed world: more violent, more sinister and more reflective of the unimaginable. The hero Sirius was dead, Voldemort was alive (and activating a cell system of Death Eaters), and the

It’s the end of an era—and still, 14 years on, the ‘Harry Potter’ series defines coming-of-age for an entire generation BY TESSA STUART

wise Dumbledore’s power was faltering. Like us, Harry had changed, too. He was moody, brooding, angsty. He fought with his cousin and his best friends, struggled to understand romantic relationships, drank butterbeer and lashed out at the adults in his life. At Hogwarts, they were taking OWLs or NEWTs, while I had SATs, APs and an extracurricular agenda to rival Hermione’s. There was one club that I left off college applications, though. Formed my junior year by a handful of students, it was called “the DA” after the secret club that Harry and his classmates form at Hogwarts. In the books, the students in Dumbledore’s Army meet in secret to teach each other things that the school (under the iron fist of interim Headmistress Umbridge) refuses to. There was nothing subversive about our group—we met, albeit secretly, to talk about the books, parse their subtexts, quiz each other on trivia, make predictions and drink tea. There was something, though, about getting together to obsess over a children’s book series instead of drinking, experimenting with drugs and sneaking out of the house (or in addition to that stuff ) that felt like an act of rebellion. We were subverting a cultural dialogue that dictated who we were supposed to be, or at least who we were supposed to want to be. After graduation, the DA disbanded. (No one, including three members who remain close friends to this day, responded to my message for this piece. We are that serious about secrecy.

Or something.) I think, over time, the excitement that the books sparked in us when we were young melted away, but it left an enduring loyalty to the characters with whom we’d gone through so much. The summer the sixth book came out, I had graduated from high school and was working as a summer camp counselor. I still read the book in one sitting, but only because I was afraid that major spoilers would slip if I didn’t finish it before my 10-yearold campers did.


y the time the seventh and final book was released, I was midway through college, studying Kierkegaard and setting up house for the first time. There were midnight bookstore parties around the country, but not for me or most others I knew. Yet the old loyalty drew us back one last time. For me, and a handful of other stragglers, there was that Target on the side of I-5. We were there when it opened, pulling copies from the towering display of books, shuffling singlefile to the lone open checkout stand and cracking the binding while we drove away—in my case, toward a weekend of debauchery in Lake Tahoe. Or that was the plan, anyway. Once I started reading, I might as well have been 12 years old again, under the blankets with a flashlight, for the embarrassing amount of time I spent tucked away in the cab of the truck with my headlamp on, turning page after page of the final book while my boyfriend and his friends, all college graduates, played

drinking games around a campfire. As you might imagine, dear reader, that relationship only lasted so long after it became clear that finishing the final Harry Potter book took precedence over the birthday festivities, and, yes, I still feel a pang of guilt thinking back on it. When all’s said and done, though, this other relationship of mine had spanned 4,100 pages, 1,179 minutes of film, countless hours spent reading, rereading, parsing and debating the respective merits of the books and movies—14 entire years of my life—and if a person can’t understand that, well, I knew a few other people who could. Even among the most loyal readers, there is one literary choice Rowling made that is more contentious than any other: the decision to include an epilogue to the final book. That chapter, “Nineteen Years Later,” depicts Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville and Draco as adults, now married and sending their own children off to Hogwarts. For some readers, it would have been enough to see Harry vanquish Voldemort and imagine how the rest of his life played out (if nothing else, Rowling had taught us how to do that much). We understand why she did it, but it doesn’t make us any less uncomfortable reading it. It is a reminder that sooner or later, we’re going to have to grow up too—and we don’t want to know how it all ends quite yet.

Steel Away Speaking of history, this band has had an interesting one. Founded in 1995 in Oakland, American Steel became a popular punk rock band, touring across the country. Influenced by a more danceable brand of indie, they changed their name to Communiqué in 2002 with a more synthesized and less punk approach. In 2007, American Steel returned, along with their classic sound. They’ve since released two newer albums and toured the U.S. and Europe. Sing along to “Maria” on Friday, July 15, at the Arlene Francis Center. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 6:30pm. $13.


Factory vs. Family Protect your produce and secure your sheep. It’s coming: ‘Farmageddon,’ a documentary about the attack on American’s access to healthy, safely grown food. Filmmaker Kristin Canty was searching for healthy food for her children when she stumbled upon evidence of policies favoring agribusiness and restricting citizens’ access to healthy food; the film researches the tension between factory organizations and family-owned farms. It screens on Saturday, July 16, as part of the HopeDance Film Festival at the Songbird Community Healing Center. 8280 Old Redwood Hwy., Cotati. 7pm. $7–$10. 707.921.7081.

HELLO HOGWARTS! Wizard Rock icons Harry and the Potters perform at a library in Canada.

Wrock of Ages Rating Potter-themed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wizard Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;


n 2008, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrock Chicagoâ&#x20AC;? brought 30 bands, three stages and thousands of fans from across the world together for an epic celebration, ending with sweaty teens and twentysomethings dancing around in full-wizard gear, squid heads and English schoolboy ties. Among this melee, onstage, a multi-band jam cranked out an impromptu version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smells Like

Teen Spirit,â&#x20AC;? with the iconic refrain of â&#x20AC;&#x153;a denialâ&#x20AC;? supplanted, lyrically, by two different words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harry Potter.â&#x20AC;? This is wizard rock, a musical genre mixing an obsessive love of J. K. Rowlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series and an obsessive need to set that love to music. Wizard rock bands unabashedly worship at the altar of Harry Potter, singing songs about characters and happenings from the series with nerdy, gleeful creativity. Fan lore names Harry

BY LEILANI CLARK and the Potters, a punkish group of striped-tie-and-glasses-wearing lads out of Massachusetts, as progenitors, which led to Draco and the Malfoys, which then led to . . . 500 wizard rock bands and counting. Wizard rock bands tour the country, make records and play shows in libraries and malls, all while glorifying a love for â&#x20AC;&#x153;reading and rocking.â&#x20AC;? The 2007 documentary We Are Wizards tells the story of this emo-nerd-book hybrid, where bands have names like

the Basilisk in Your Pasta, Ginny and the Heartbreakers, Shrieking Shack Disco Gang, Big Whompy, MC Kreacher, the Giant Squidstravaganza, Gryffindor Common Room Rejects and the Hermione Crookshanks Experience. Not to be left out, we decided to enlist the help of Xenia, our resident 15-year-old Harry Potter superfan (girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s read the series six times, for Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake!). Xenia was more than able to deliver a quick assessment of some of the more well-known wizard rock videos. Since the Hogwarts crew is separated into houses depending on their varying levels of abilities, strengths, wizard blood or muggledom, we rated the wizard rock bands on a scale from 1 to 5. 1. Dumbledore Ultimate wizard status! Considered the most powerful wizard of his time, Dumbeldore was headmaster at Hogwarts until his death in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. 2. Gryffindor Founded by Godric Gryffindor, this house values courage, bravery, loyalty and nerve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re people that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take things sitting down,â&#x20AC;? says Xenia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re brawny rather than brainy.â&#x20AC;? 3. Hufflepuff These are the kids who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really ďŹ t into other houses. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re loyal and hard-working, and their spirit animal is a badger, if that tells you anything. 4. Ravenclaw The supersmarties of the school. Creative and intelligent, they rule when it comes to wit, talent and brains. 5. Slytherin The house for people who have pure wizard blood. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re of â&#x20AC;&#x153;noble descentâ&#x20AC;? says Xenia, but also the source of most of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;dark wizards,â&#x20AC;? hence a negative reputation. So without further ado, on with the wizard rock . . . ) 22


Meg Bourne





Harry Potter ( 21 1. Harry and the Potters, ‘The Godfather’ Rating: 2 (Gryffindor) Xenia explains that this song is about Sirius Black, who in the third book reveals himself to be a good guy instead of a bad guy. The music is super-catchy, a cross between early Green Day and Bright Eyes. The band writhe and screech before a crowd of screaming Potter fans, mainly girls, a scene that repeats itself throughout many of the live videos. “I like that he wrapped the cord around his head,” says Xenia. “A lot of the songs I’ve seen or heard them do, they’re pretty accurate. They don’t mess things up. They’ve obviously read the books and seen the movies, and they put that into their songs.” Sample lyric: “We’ve got to save Sirius Black / from something worse than death / But how can we do it / when our teacher is a werewolf on the loose?” 2. Draco and the Malfoys, ‘My Dad Is Rich’ Rating: 4 (Ravenclaw) This is one of the bigger bands in the wizard rock movement, but that doesn’t impress our teen expert. “Their lyrics are really good, but their songs are kind of slow. They’re just not quite as good as Harry and the Potters.” She thinks they take the sarcasm a bit too far, but that the lyrics are pretty accurate for how Draco Malfoy might think. “He’s singing, ‘My dad is rich and your dad is dead,’ and he’s making fun of Harry for that because it makes Draco feel superior,” she notes. Sample lyric: “You may have freed our house elf / and brought doubt to our family name / but your parents still got toasted by a big green glowing flame” 3. The Whomping Willows, ‘Cedric Had It Coming’ Rating: 1 (Dumbledore) Xenia likes this one so much that she reposts the link onto Facebook immediately. “I’m creating a new category, because this is really good. It’s pretty

clever,” says Xenia. “The lyrics are spot-on and ironic.” The song has a pensive, sad feel to it, which makes sense given the subject matter of Cedric being killed even after he was nice to Harry. Sample lyric: “Oh, Cedric why’d you go into that maze? / Haven’t you ever seen a Hollywood movie before / in which a minor character gets slain / to benefit the survival of the big star?” 4. The Hungarian Horntails, ‘I Am a Dragon’ Rating: 3 (Hufflepuff) This song is the most punk rock out of the bunch—think Daniel Johnston on speed, sung by a little boy who attacks his guitar with an energy not seen since Pete Townsend broke his Gibson at the Cow Palace in 1967. “I am a dragon and I don’t care!” the young wizard rocker screeches. “They are by far the cutest, most adorable band,” says Xenia. “I can’t rate them, because that wouldn’t be fair since they’re only nine.” Eventually, she breaks down and, with a laugh, gives the boys a Hufflepuff. “I wouldn’t listen to them on my own time. They have a cool band, but they’re just kids.” Sample lyric: “I am a dragon and I don’t care / I just like burning Voldemort’s butt” 5. The Parselmouths, ‘What Kind of Name Is Hermione?’ Rating: 2 (Gryffindor) Two girls take the bratty, sneering ethic of ’90s era riot grrrl band Bratmobile and mix it with some serious ministry-of-magic wizard action. One of the more popular bands on the wizard rock scene, the Parselmouths represent just one of many girl-fronted wrock bands out there. “It sort of seems like something Slytherin girls might say, because none of the Slytherins like her, and the band name is sort of associated with Slytherin, so it makes sense,” says Xenia. “The lyrics are pretty clever, because Hermione is a know-it-all a lot of the time, and she does have crazy hair.” Sample lyric: “What kind of name is Hermione? / It makes me think of something whiny / like cats!”

Because of this, Hairspray is a fitting choice to kick off the 40th anniversary season of Santa Rosa’s Summer Repertory Theater program. Through the middle of August, the program’s army

airspray is among the more surprising hit shows to have edged into the American theatrical mainstream since either Godspell, inspired by a book of the New Testament, or Cats, suggested by T. S. Eliot’s freaky book of children’s poems. But the lavish Tonywinning 2002 Broadway musical looked nothing like the gritty John Waters’ film from 1988 that spawned it. That’s part of what makes its success story so satisfying: the weird little movie that grew into a Broadway hit, putting highly memorable songs in the ears of all who see it.

of theatrical recruits will stage five different shows in repertory on two stages at the Santa Rosa Junior College. And because this is theater, and weird things happen in the world of theater, SRT’s artistic director James Newman has stepped into the iconic crossdressing role of Edna Turnblad in every performance of Hairspray. Directed, as well, by Newman, Hairspray tells the story of a good-natured high school girl in 1962 Baltimore and her attempts to racially integrate her favorite TV dance show. Powered by a polished cast (Marlin Jamar Williams is a stand-out as Seaweed Stubbs) and backed by winning musical direction by Alex Wise, the infectiously positive show still has to overcome a few problematic microphone issues (the lyrics are often impossible to hear), but the commitment of the cast makes this fish-out-of-water tale a lyrical, lovable winner. Unfortunately, in the case of A Flea in Her Ear, the second SRT show of the season, the commitment of the actors (which is nothing short of extraordinary) isn’t quite enough to overcome some erratic direction and a number of unwise staging choices by director David Storck. In this overly raunchy adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s 1907 sex farce, the action has been moved up to 1965 Paris, where a suspicious wife has reason to believe her husband has been cheating. Her concerns lead her to a seedy hotel called the Pussya-Go-Go—along with nearly everyone else in her household, who for one reason or another end up rampaging in and out of doors at breathtaking speed. As the befuddled would-be womanizer Victor, Jeremy Sonkin is first-rate, as are Nemuna Cesay as Victor’s wife, Yvonne, and Zach Guzik as the couple’s outlandishly amoral doctor. The set by Greg Mitchell is as much a cast member as the cast, and takes a serious beating from all those slamming doors and spinning rooms.




LONG AGO Internet leaks, advance

ticket sales and midnight screenings all coincided with the rise of ‘Harry Potter.’

Goblet of Revenue

‘Harry Potter’ and a changed industry BY RICHARD VON BUSACK


ven before people line up this week to see Voldemort get his just desserts, the collected take on the Harry Potter films has been estimated at $6.34 billion. As far back as 2007, Warner Brothers boasted that the Potter series had surpassed the box office of two rival blue-chip franchises, the James Bond series and the Star Wars films.

It’ll be a disruption for the studio to see the annuity go dry. Where are they ever going to find something this big again? Their plan is for ever-more superhero wrangling. But how can Batman and Superman draw the female audiences like Harry Potter did? The Potter films used the new

media—the internet leak and the suddenly announced midnight preview—as well as the tremendous rise in the quality of digital effects. Gilded like Big Ben in the first two films, these effects eventually looked rubbed with soot like a commando’s face. Wands that glowed like Tinkerbell at the start of the decade ended up blazing like pistol shots at its dusk. And still one could watch the history of the last troubled decade reflected in the films. What made the Harry Potter films such a success? Like the two other rivals mentioned before, Potter was produced by a small production company, Heyday Films, just like Bond’s Eon and Star Wars’ Lucasfilm; the smallness helped Potter avoid mood-destroying reboots and reimaginations. Second, it was the films’ political flexibility. The left happily claimed the films, identifying Dick Cheney with Voldemort, yet these films celebrated the exclusivity and legacy admissions of the British boarding school. Third, it was the lead trio of actors, who grew better as the series went on. Rupert Grint, the standout, went from tiresome ginger-joke to suave, scruffy leading man. And finally, the success was due to the quality of the series’ turning point, Alfonso Cuarón’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004). This third film was the least financially popular of the series. (Yes, a film can earn $795 million and still be considered an underperformer.) But even David Yates, who directed the last four Potter films, says Cuarón’s was the best of them all. Cuarón’s darkling adaptation shifted the emphasis from kid fantasies to all-ages entertainment. When I interviewed Cuarón in 2007, he explained how he got the texture: “We hadn’t seen all of Hogwarts except in bits and pieces, and there were feelings you were watching a set. We tried to make Hogwarts a character.” Maybe Hogwarts itself was the main attraction, then. Yes, there was a hereditary hero, born to the purple robes, but he’d have been lost without the old school. British or foreign, young or old, rich as Malfoy or poor as the Weasleys, magical or plain mortal, all were in Hogwarts together.

25 Film capsules by Nicholas Berandt and Richard von Busack.

NEW MOVIES A Better Life (PG-13; 98 min.) Chris Weitz (A Single Man) directs the story of an immigrant father and his son who bond while attempting to recover their stolen truck, purchased to start a landscaping business. (NB) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (PG-13; 130 min.) Well, it probably doesn’t all end. As the great Gabe Meline noted, no franchise earning over $6 billion will be left alone for long. (NB)

Page One: Inside the New York Times (R; 88 min.) Sundance premiere documenting one year in the life of the world’s most famous newsroom comes to theaters. Includes interviews with Gay Talese, Carl Bernstein and David Remnick. (NB)

ALSO PLAYING Bad Teacher (R; 92 min.) Judd Apatow buddy Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard) directs this comedy starring Cameron Diaz as a gold-digger putting in time at her day job as a middle school teacher. After her rich boyfriend dumps her, she sets her sights on an eligible co-worker, himself pursued by the school’s model teacher. (NB)

Beginners (R; 104 min.) Comedydrama about a father (Christopher Plummer) who, at 75, comes out to his son after learning he has a terminal illness. Directed by Mike Mills (Thumbsucker) and co-starring Ewan McGregor and Mélanie Laurent. (NB) Bridesmaids (R; 125 min.) Hangover for the girls. Hilarious Kristen Wiig co-stars with Maya Rudolph in raunchy-ish chic flick about a Vegas bridal party that goes too far. Directed by Paul Feig of Freaks and Geeks fame and produced by Judd Apatow. (NB)

Buck (PG; 88 min.) Documentary about real-life horse whisperer Buck Brannaman who was the inspiration for the acclaimed film. (NB)

Cars 2 (G; 113 min.) This sequel to the 2006 Pixar hit is a Bond parody, but the stale kind, with a bumpkin, Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), mistaken for an agent. Not that Cars 2 is really bad; it’s just cute

and relentless, and paced to tickle five-year-olds. Also , there’s a new emphasis on bathroom humor. Pixar usually had too much class to go there. (RvB)

Green Lantern (PG-13; 114 min.) Ryan Reynolds (Definitely Maybe) is Hal Jordan, the first human to join the intergalactic league of protectors known as the Green Lantern Corps. But, naturally, with intergalactic powers come intergalactic bad guys. With Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard and Tim Robbins. (NB)

The Hangover Part II (R; 102 min.) Maybe the saddest words in the movie, as the ensemble stir from an evening of blackout debauchery in Bangkok: “I think it happened again.” The script takes far too much time to explain why Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) got back together in the first place, and it’s hard to get into the spirit of things until Ken Jeong’s profane Mr. Chow turns up. Runner-up for humor after Jeong is a spider monkey who does a lot of things that the SPCA wouldn’t like. (RvB) Horrible Bosses (R; 98 min.) Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey and Colin Farrell co-star in dark comedy about three friends who conspire to murder their bosses. (NB)

Kung Fu Panda 2 (PG; 95 min.) Jack Black is back voicing Po, panda warrior, who must protect the Valley of Peace—and the art of kung fu itself—from a new danger. Also features the voices of Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen and Jackie Chan. (NB)

Larry Crowne (PG-13; 99 min.) After losing his job as a big-box retail manager, Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) heads back to junior college, where he falls for his publicspeaking instructor (Julia Roberts). Directed by Hanks, who also cowrote with Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). (NB) Midnight in Paris (PG-13; 100 min.) Woody Allen’s newest stars Owen Wilson as Gil, a disenchanted screenwriter who wants to be a novelist. On a trip to Paris with family, he starts receiving midnight visitations from F. Scott Fitzgerald (Tom Hiddleston) and

Zelda (Alison Pill). As the forays continue, Gil meets the artistic and literary lights of the 1920s, magically reincarnated, but the not very pungent point is stretched into a culture-vulture’s version of Play It Again, Sam. Midnight in Paris is a harmless, gentle nothing, but it’s also a moldy vision of the city during its era of artistic adventurousness. (RvB)


Monte Carlo (PG; 109 min.) Ensemble romcom follows three friends vacationing in Paris who are mistaken for socialites and whisked off to Monte Carlo, at which point the film becomes an adventure caper— a sort of romdramcom. (NB)

Super 8 (PG-13; 112 min.) Something creepy may have escaped a train wreck witnessed by teens making a Super 8 movie in this film written and directed by the very busy J. J. Abrams. Produced by Steven Spielberg. (NB)

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (PG-13; 155 min.) Michael Bay is back directing the third and very long installment of the Transformers franchise. Stars Shia LeBeouf. (NB)

The Tree of Life (PG-13; 138 min.) Sean Penn and Brad Pitt co-star in Terrence Malick’s ambitious new film that follows the eldest son of a Texas family as he wrestles questions of life and existence. At the Rafael and Summerfield Cinemas. (NB) The Trip (NR; 107 min.) Michael Winterbottom (Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story) directs British comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on a tour of Northern England’s finer restaurants. Watch for their dueling Michael Caine impressions. At the Rafael. (NB)

X-Men: First Class (PG-13; 140 min.) A trip down memory lane shows us the early work of noble mutants Professor X and Magneto as they fight to stop a nuclear holocaust. (NB)

The Zookeeper (PG-13; 104 min.) Poor Kevin James stars as lonely-guy zookeeper Griffin Keyes aided by a talking menagerie who teach him nature’s mating rituals to help him win his dream girl. With the voices of Nick Nolte, Cher, Don Rickles, Adam Sandler and Sylvester Stallone. (NB)

Fabulosa Fest 2001 puts ‘fun’ back in fundraiser

“The idea of Fabulosa Fest was to try to do a big party that happens to be a fundraiser,” says Dawn Huston, who along with Judea Eden and Jenny Hoyston organizes the festival. Among the performers at this year’s fest are indie sensation Mirah, experimental noisemakers Erase Errata, humorous singer Gretchen Phillips, lesbian-folk icon Phranc and the almighty Kaia, former guitarist and singer for queer punk rock band Team Dresch, who performs campfire songs on Friday evening. While the event is women and queer-oriented, all genders are “happy and welcome” to attend, says Huston. Huston adds the best part is that “we give all the money away.” All proceeds from the festival are donated to Positive Images, a Sonoma County nonprofit providing support to Sonoma County’s LGBT youth and young adult population. Fabulosa Fest 2011 runs Friday–Sunday, July 15–17, at Walker Creek Ranch. 1700 Marshall-Petaluma Road, Petaluma. $35–$45 per day; weekend passes available.—Leilani Clark

Majority Rules Art from the notso-underground BY EMILY HUNT



n this scene, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really all about networking, meeting people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about who you know,â&#x20AC;? muses producer and rapper Evan TRUTHLiVE Phillips as he surveys the chattering crowd at the downtown Santa Rosa nightclub.

But this is no ordinary club night, and the people drifting along the bar at Christyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Square look just a little less mundane than normal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gallery Wednesday, an event pairing DJs and live street artists that Phillips began hosting only a few months ago alongside a tight-knit community of North Bay Artists calling themselves the Majority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never use unknowns,â&#x20AC;? Phillips assures me of the artists involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many people in Santa Rosa who are doing really, really well, and they still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Future Gallery Wednesday artists include Jared Powell, MJ Lindo and shoe designer Dominic Chambrone. Gallery Wednesdays are every Wednesday at Christyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Square, 96 Old Courthouse Square, Santa Rosa. 9pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;2am. No cover. 707.528.8565.

know about each other. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to create a community with this; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to showcase talent.â&#x20AC;? So while the DJ plays everything from remixed MGMT to Sugar Ray to Kanye West, visual artist Sergio Lopez ďŹ nishes up one of his pieces in front of Christyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crowd, a third of whom watch him work, a third of whom dance and a third of whom carry on at the bar in standard nightclub fashion. Behind them are open, furnished rooms containing even more original art. This nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hanging exhibition is artist Jimmy Hits, showing his mixed-media series Positive Thinking, the last of which he ďŹ nished live at a previous Gallery Wednesday. Both Lopez and Hits bring a decidedly street-art aesthetic to their work. Hits has extensive experience in mural painting; Lopez uses a photo of a striking woman in front of a graffiti wall as a guide. The pieces, however, surpass this generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hackneyed ideas of graffiti. Hits delivers a clear message through visual symbolism, planting plus signs of positivity all over his eerily cartoonish paintings. He also veers away from â&#x20AC;&#x153;street artâ&#x20AC;? in that his creations sell for a pretty penny. Gallery Wednesdays have their roots in a variety of community events. A recent project of the Majority was Kaleidoscope, which offered beneďŹ ts similar to Gallery Wednesdaysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;eclectic DJ-ing, live art and moreâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at different venues in Santa Rosa. But even with changing locations, Phillips reports nothing but success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the best itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been,â&#x20AC;? he says bluntly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a standard group here, but some people want to dance, some to relax. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deďŹ nitely the younger indie artists around, but a 40-year-old Realtor could also come here for a drink and feel comfortable. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the Giants on TV. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Santa Rosa.â&#x20AC;?

Met Opera

Everlasting ‘Sisterhood’ novel a worthy successor The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants became a classic coming-ofage story for the current generation with the series’ four girls—always growing up one step ahead of us— and their legendary pair of pants. Four and a half years after the fourth and final book in the series, Ann Brashares has released a surprising fifth novel of the Sisterhood. Picking up 10 years later, Sisterhood Everlasting finds the four friends grappling with tragedy. Shaken and confused when a drowning ruins their reunion, the friends scatter. Following mysterious left-behind letters, the girls struggle through parallel journeys as they search for answers. Their geographical travels—from Greece and New York all the way to Petaluma—mirror their emotional journeys. The girls search for different things—lost love, new life, careers, forgiveness—but seek one conclusion. Brashares turns an incredible trick by not only resolving the seemingly irresolvable in the final chapters, but by successfully returning to a bestselling series without any cheap shots or rushed plotlines.—Justine McDaniel
