Rhapsodies My Comrade, Richard Aoki BY ELBERT ‘BIG MAN’ HOWARD

A

t almost 75 years of age, I’m surprised by very few things in life anymore. However, I can say I was not only surprised by the recent allegations made against my comrade Richard Aoki—that he was an FBI informant—I was sickened. I should not have been surprised, because I know that this government still has unfinished business with us, the Panthers. Being dead doesn’t free us from their need to persecute us. I got to know Richard Aoki in the early years of the Black Panther Party. I learned of his internment, a young victim of America’s concentration camps for the Japanese, of how he and his family were stripped of everything they had, how he survived that, how he grew up on the mean streets of Oakland, how he learned to defend himself and how the Black Panther Party seemed to him the logical place to be. Like me, he had been in the service. He knew about weapons, sure. He also saw that through education he could fight for equal rights, educate and organize his community. As an educator, he never, ever stopped doing that. He was a fierce warrior for human rights, to the day he died. In early 2006, after decades apart, we were reunited at an event. We were both pretty frail, him walking with a cane after several strokes and kidney problems, and me just recovering from cancer surgery and several other chronic health conditions. It was so good to see him again. In later years, no matter how ill he was, Richard would find a way to come to almost every event, and we never ceased to find joy in seeing each other. Richard, whom we loved and admired, who made it clear how much he loved us and, in particular, all disenfranchised, oppressed people, kept us entertained with his wit and intellect until his death in 2009. So we will continue to fight these atrocious lies, lies without evidence that are designed to sell a book and create anxiety and suspicion among us all. Richard is no longer here to fight these ridiculous allegations himself, so we must do so. After all, we owe him, big-time. Elbert ‘Big Man’ Howard is one of the original six founding members of the Black Panther Party. He lives in Forestville. Open Mic is a weekly feature in the ‘Bohemian.’ We welcome your contribution.

On the Heels

The letter in Rhapsodies & Rants titled “On Display” (Aug. 22) and the essay “Teetering on the Brink” (Aug. 15) describe high-heeled shoes as representing the subordinate position assigned to women by gender roles. The best reason to discourage high-heeled shoes is their negative effect on the body. But simply denying their appeal attacks the symptom and reinforces the underlying problem. Despite the influence of gender roles, high-heeled shoes and similar symbols are tied to expressions of female sexuality, no matter how we reason about it. I can’t deny my physical response to Betty Boop. Being honest with myself doesn’t prevent me from seeing her as a negative role model. Let’s be grownups. Drawing the veil tighter around women’s expression of sexuality maintains the dynamic in which men are the pursuer of the passive female. Transforming these symbols is not impossible. Let’s make every year Sadie Hawkins year. Give your male child a flower.

with the reporting and got away with pooh-poohing it when her feet should have been shackled to the fire.

The point being that now, the press has committed to newsprint the privileges in law and position allowed to U.S. Senators and Congressmen, which is five years behind Byrne’s excellent articles. They were scooped by a small, market-and-events publication. I mean, what a coup for you to scoop these journalistic puppets week after week with great news that cuts across party lines and the huge divide in our republic, with information that allows for sane conclusions coming from the truth. Here’s a senator who voted for a war in Iraq based on cherry-picked intelligence, a war that killed many women and children and several times that in those wounded, burned and maimed from our bombardments. Feinstein sits on a committee that grants her husband’s companies $1.5 billion in contracts. I wonder if those companies would ever exist without those funds. Now, I understand he sits on the UC Board of Governors and invests the university’s money in some other of his companies. Can’t these thieves get a regular job?

Feinstein’s Folly I gave the article “Senator Warbucks” by Peter Byrne (Jan. 7, 2007) to several people, and enclosed it in a letter, minus any rancor or indignation, to the Santa Rosa chief of police. I notice your advertisers are not exactly a roll call of high-powered, bottom-line, corporate interests, which I have to assume is the reason I have read in your little, one-to-a-customer, free edition every Wednesday some of the finest, competent pieces of investigative, threepart articles I have ever encountered— the exposé of Sen. Diane Feinstein. Although I’m a lifelong Democrat, I sent the piece to her office and to Woolsey’s office without a reply. I recall on the news that Feinstein was confronted

Undervalued Oversight I was glad to see “All Eyes on the Library” (Aug. 22) by Leilani Clark. I applaud the board of supervisors for looking at library governance and for including the various cities in the review. But they have excluded voices that need to be heard in this review. Sonoma County Save Our Libraries has attended every commission meeting and been present at all the library advisory boards at least once for the last 16 months, and has an overview that no other group has. The library staff also has a view that is missing on the subcommittee. These voices and viewpoints have been excluded again.

House and Home The Homeowner Bill of Rights aims to protect those losing homes to foreclosure BY LEILANI CLARK

O

ne year after a motorcycle accident left her with a traumatic brain injury, Celeste Singh received another blow when her house was put up for auction by mortgage servicer IndyMac in the midst of negotiations for a permanent loan modification. Singh

prevented the sale by filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, only one in a string of desperate actions going back to 2009, but the Forestville resident struggles to remain in her 1930s-era home near the Russian River. “There have been times that suicide was an option for me,” says Singh. “Because would it be better to go live under a bridge?” The

owner of a hair salon and a recent graduate of Santa Rosa Junior College, Singh says that she feels like a “sitting duck,” just waiting for a 120-day notice of eviction to be pinned to her door. This past May, Singh testified before a joint legislative conference committee in support of the Homeowner Bill of Rights, an act of legislation developed by the office of Attorney General Kamala Harris. Before a panel,

Singh relayed her story of taking out a “predatory” loan (in her words) with IndyMac Mortgage in 2006. Payments began at $800 a month but soon ballooned to over $2,400 a month, an amount that became untenable as Singh recuperated from the accident. Now, Singh is suing IndyMac and its owner OneWest Bank, and hopes that the case will allow her to stay in the home where she’s lived and raised four sons—three are in the U.S. military—for over 10 years. In July, Singh’s effort seemed to pay off when Gov. Brown approved and signed the Homeowner Bill of Rights. Considering that between 2008 and 2011, 1 million homes in California were lost to foreclosure— with an additional 700,000 facing imminent foreclosure—there seems to be no abatement to the foreclosure crisis. Effective Jan. 1, the bill aims to end the practice of dual tracking (where mortgage servicers advance the foreclosure process while still working with homeowners to secure loan modifications) and demands the provision for a single point of contact. The law will also impose fines on any servicer found recording or filing multiple unverified or forged documents (known as “robo-signing”) and allows homeowners to sue for material violations in a court of law. Deborah Kay, who purchased her home in Guerneville in 2003, claims that dual tracking and a confusing maze of loanmodification terms have been the norm when dealing with Wells Fargo, her mortgage servicer. Wells Fargo currently controls one-third of all new U.S. mortgages, more than the seven next-largest lenders combined. After her only daughter committed suicide in 2005, Kay fell into a psychological funk, admitting that she “minimized the financial impact” of leaving her job as a social worker to grieve. But attempts to get her loan modified to reflect her current financial situation were declined by the bank, albeit in convoluted ways. Kay says she has proof that some of her documents were robo-signed. Dual tracking came into play when a Wells Fargo


‘Protesting at the banks presupposes there’s a justice system that’s going to hold the criminals accountable.’ Foreclosure’s effects go beyond the individuals forced from their homes. According to a report by the Alliance for Community Empowerment, in the past four years there have been 20,495 foreclosures in Sonoma County. Those result in a loss of $51,421,644 in property taxes; in addition, each foreclosed property has the potential to depress the value of neighboring homes by 0.9 percent. C. J. Holmes, a Santa Rosa– based real estate analyst, founder of Home Owners for Justice and host of the KPFA show Stop Foreclosures, calls the foreclosure crisis a “nightmare waiting to explode.” She is hopeful that that the Homeowner Bill of Rights will put sorely needed protections in place. “It’s the best we could get, for sure,” says Holmes. It doesn’t go as far as a Nevada bill, she points

out, that threatens prison time to any bank or entity that is going to foreclose and is caught filing forged documents. The real issue, says Holmes, is the fact that hedge fund investors are now being vetted and encouraged to buy up swaths of foreclosures for transformation to rental properties—the REO-toRental program presented by the Federal Housing Finance Agency last February. “The end result will be that those hedge funds will be kingmakers in those markets,” says Holmes. Tim Nonn, a Petaluma resident who lost his home two years ago, has been active in the Occupy movement to stop foreclosures. But he calls the Homeowner Bill of Rights a “sham.” “It doesn’t slow down or stop illegal foreclosures,” says Nonn. “It doesn’t hold the banks accountable for their crimes.” Nonn says that the Occupy movement is shifting strategies, focusing less on going after the banks that so far aren’t being prosecuted and more on finding creative solutions. “Protesting at the banks presupposes there’s a justice system that’s going to hold the criminals responsible,” he explains. “The energy now is around building strong relations with local governments to save our homes and communities.” Pay attention to recent news, and Nonn’s claims hold merit. In mid-August, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder decided not to prosecute Goldman Sachs for its prime role in America’s financial crisis, despite a senatorial criminal investigation’s findings of abuse and poor oversight. But people like Celeste Singh aren’t being bailed out or given pardon from their ongoing tribulations. Her credit destroyed by the foreclosure process, Singh says she doesn’t have many options left. “It’s the big unknown, the big, gray, dark unknown for us,” says Singh. “I’m really hopeful with these laws that got set into place. I’m hoping that someway, somehow I’ll be protected.”

Pocket Change Resilience has certainly become a buzzword in the (relatively) new century. Part of a larger movement aimed at helping people prepare for a time when fossil fuels are depleted, Transition Sebastopol works to educate and enlighten those anticipating soon-to-be societal shifts. Building resilience in the face of a changed world is key to the movement. Transition Sebastopol sponsors “Becoming Change in a Changing World” meetings facilitated by Sandra Schotchler and David Goff with the goal of creating a “learning community” to help interested people make that shift.

Banned Bags Sonoma County moved one step closer to a plastic bag ban—following in the footsteps of Mendocino, San Francisco and Bangladesh—when supervisors approved the advancement of a single countywide ordinance in August. The ban would go into effect in July 2013, and fines for violations would run from $100 to $500. The proposal now moves on to the Sonoma County Waste Management Agency, who will conduct an environmental review and, if the Save the Plastic Bag Coalition doesn’t interfere with a costly lawsuit, draft a law. A plastic bag ban has been in the works in Sonoma County since 2008 and seems to be moving toward inevitable approval. Anyone who’s cringed during supermarket visits as baggers hand over 10 plastic bags with three small items in each (we’re looking at you, Safeway) will welcome the news.—Leilani Clark

representative assured her that they were working to secure a modification, just before Kay’s house was put up for auction. The bank has since attempted to sell the home eight times, a process that she’s staved off through a series of legal maneuvers and bankruptcy filings. “Everywhere I turn there’s nothing but bureaucratic brick walls,” says Kay, sitting in the living room of her cozy, brightly painted bungalow. “In all honesty, I’ve lost faith in the process.”

Loading the Dice Rolling snake eyes on the earth’s delicate surface BY JULIANE POIRIER

B

ill McGuire’s book Waking the Giant: How a Changing Climate Triggers Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and Volcanoes is an edge-of-your-seat science tour and wake-up call. McGuire, professor of geophysical and climate hazards at University College London, underscores the testimony of scientist Richard Alley to the House of Representatives in 2010, warning that a critical tipping point may be reached within 10 years and that “what is going on in the Arctic right now is the biggest and fastest thing nature has ever done.” Is fast so bad? Based on Earth’s history and on emerging studies of surface reactions, McGuire’s informed guess is yes. We’ve been warned that ice melt leads to a rise in the level of the ocean, but McGuire’s sobering data shows how ice melt also causes the redistribution of weight on the lithosphere, the rocky crust of the planet. The loss of ice weight

on land causes a spring-back motion, comparable to a sofa cushion rising just after the person sitting there has gotten off the couch. This “post-glacial rebound,” as scientists call it, has been historically linked to earthquakes up to magnitude 7. And earthquakes that trigger landslides, writes McGuire, in “a watery environment can produce tsunamis . . . destructive and lethal many thousands of kilometers from their source.” And then there are volcanoes. As all this weight is being shifted around and temperatures changing, those volcanoes already primed for a blast are sensitive “to even small changes in the environment.” Yet even the nonprimed volcanoes can be triggered by weather events, through interrelationships and “feedback loops” quite complex and still under study. Recent findings by volcanologists suggest that the weight of sustained rises in sea level redistributed from ice melt to the base of volcanoes creates enough pressure to potentially “promote expulsion of magma” or cause volcanic flanks to collapse. (Mount St. Helens exploded from flank collapse in 1981.) Just as volcanic eruptions can be triggered by climate change, these eruptions in turn can contribute to further climate changes with gasses, heat and ash spewed from below. McGuire— with the caution characteristic of scientists and Brits alike—does not claim simple cause and effect but does assert that it would be “astonishing” if rapid climate change did not modify the “picture of global volcanic activity.” McGuire aligns himself with Alley’s testimony to the (apparently deaf) Congress. We are, McGuire claims, “loading the dice in favor of increased geological mayhem at a time when we can most do without it.” Our future outlook is grim, he warns, unless “there is a dramatic and completely unexpected turn around in the way in which the human race manages itself and the planet.”

SPICE OF LIFE Small plates are the winners at Campo Fina, right around the corner from Ari Rosen’s popular Scopa.

La Dolce Vita Ari Rosen has another hit on his hands with Campo Fina BY STETT HOLBROOK

T

here’s a strong family resemblance between Scopa and newcomer Campo Fina, owner Ari Rosen’s spin-off restaurant around the corner. The two Italian eateries in downtown Healdsburg are both long and narrow, with moody

lighting. The intimate, urbane spaces fill up quickly, so to those who snag a table, it feels like a small victory. But other than the sibling restaurants’ specialty in Italian cuisine, the similarities stop there. Campo Fina might look similar to Scopa coming in the door, but the real draw is the spacious

patio and bar out back. It’s wine country mythology brought to life—warm nights, locally sourced Mediterranean food and flowing wine enjoyed by relaxed, goodlooking people. The bocce ball court at the rear of the courtyard adds to the dolce vita vibe that pervades the place. And unlike Scopa, Campo Fina serves just small plates and pizza from two separate kitchens: one

for the impeccably prepared little dishes, and the other across the patio where wonderfully thin-crust pies are pulled from an oak- and madrone-fueled brick oven. Small plates are a great way to dine. It’s no wonder the concept has had such staying power. Starters are usually the best part of a restaurant’s menu; just point your finger at Campo Fina’s, and you’ll come up with a winner. I loved the hard-boiled eggs with salsa verde and pickled celery ($4.50) from the “all day” menu, a list of bites served during lunch and dinner. It’s a great warm-up dish for things to come, as is the little salad of green beans and sunflower seeds in a sherry vinaigrette ($6). Nothing fancy. Just simple, good food. For something more substantial, the sweet burrata cheese plate with grilled bread, roasted eggplant, caramelized figs, Calabrian chiles and smoked olive oil ($12.50) is another good opener. Campo Fina does seafood quite well. I loved the albacore crudo ($13.50), glistening chunks of the briny-sweet fish paired with fennel, shaved watermelon radish and sea beans on a base of tart yogurt. Good, too, is the brothy rock cod with supremely light gnocchi ($13.50), though best of all may be the charred octopus ($13.50). Octopus can be as tough and chewy as an eraser, but here it’s supremely tender, and great paired with chunks of skin-on roasted potatoes, wild chicory and black olives. The mark of a good cook is his ability to turn something simple into something great. Case in point: the honey-roasted carrots with coriander seeds and bread crumbs ($7.50). The long, skinny whole carrots are blistered to a beautiful dark orange and sprinkled with the aforementioned ingredients. Simple. Delicious. And then there’s the pizza. Here again the restaurant scores by getting the simple things right. Making great pizza is far from simple, but Campo ) 14

Fina makes it look easy with a thin but chewy crust and a spare application of sauce and toppings. The margherita ($13.50) is a classic, and the afumata ($16.50) layers on ďŹ&#x201A;avors of smoke from the oven with smoked bufala mozzarella, red onions, friggitello peppers and juicy chunks of braised pork belly. In addition to the food, the other highlight at Campo Fina is the beverage menu. The Italianleaning wine list has several gems, but the beer and wine cocktails warrant special attention. The drinks ($8) were developed by Erika Frey, who took over at Cyrus after star mixologist Scott Beattie left. Some of my favorites were La Biretta (Moretti beer; Cocchi Americano, a coveted Italian aperitif wine; lemon juice; orange spice syrup; and Angostura bitters) and the Fiori de Sambuca (Dolin Blanc, a delicate French vermouth; elderďŹ&#x201A;ower syrup; lemon juice; grapefruit bitters; and anise). These are masterful, wonderfully refreshing drinks youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to ďŹ nd anywhere else. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not persuasive enough, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also Russian River Brewing Co.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Damnation on tap, one of the best beers on the planet. As the crowds of people both out front and inside attest, Rosen has another hit on his hands with Campo Finaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casual yet sophisticated food served at reasonable prices in a friendly, good-looking setting. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to like?

SMALL BITES

Eat My Words With a devil-maycare attitude toward warnings from my local library not to eat and read at the same time—so as not to leave food stains on reading materials—one of my favorite things to do since I was a kid has involved nibbling on whatever snacks are at hand (preferably sandwiches) while diving into my latest book. Copperfield’s Books renders my adored hobby all snazzy and legit with “Debut Dinners,” their newest reading series. The first dinner, on Tuesday, Sept. 4, features author Amanda Coplin and her acclaimed debut novel The Orchardist. Hailed by NPR as “a stunning accomplishment, hypnotic in its storytelling power,” the book tells the story of Talmadge, who’s grown apples and other fruits in an isolated, Washington state valley for 40 years. For $75, literavores get a hardcover copy of the book, an opportunity to brush shoulders with the author and a specially designed three-course meal at Forchetta/Bastoni in Sebastopol of an insalata mista, orecchiette with braised rapini, garlic and chiles, or penne with polpettine, and an apple-almond tart with cream. Not to worry, the price also includes a glass of wine. Upcoming debut dinners in October and November feature authors Kathleen Alcott and Scott Hutchins, respectively, and will be held at Risibisi in Petaluma and Bistro 29 in Santa Rosa. Eat, read and be merry on Tuesday, Sept. 4, at Forchetta/Bastoni. 6948 Sebastopol Road, Sebastopol. 6pm. $75. www.copperfieldsbooks.com.—Leilani Clark

Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery Where Pinot meets Pinotage BY JAMES KNIGHT

T

he turnoff to Meyers Grade Road comes up fast, near the entrance to Fort Ross State Historic Park. Don’t look back; the road is narrow and the climb is steep. The driveway meanders through vineyards, a stand of tall trees, passes a meadow and a small pond and ends at a clearing. Directly beyond the tasting room, fog blankets the Pacific in a V-shaped vignette between forested hills; to the right, there’s an old Citroën. Now I’ve really lost my bearings—have I somehow ended up in Bonny Doon?

The setting may be similar, but Fort Ross has had better luck growing Pinot Noir than Citroën aficionado Randall Grahm’s experiment some hundred miles to the south. This January, Fort Ross-Seaview won AVA approval after a 13-year petition. Its viticultural distinction has more to do with proximity to cool ocean breezes and elevation above the fog line than its history, although the Russians planted wine grapes nearby nearly a decade before the friars in Sonoma planted theirs. During 200th anniversary events at Fort Ross, says owner Linda Schwartz, attending Russian oligarchs showed up, mad for their wine. Lester and Linda Schwartz arrived here from the opposite half of the globe. Although they’re white natives of South Africa, the rightwing government was closing in on friends in the labor movement. Linda taught music and Lester found success as an attorney in San Francisco. (Upon meeting this sensibly clad, modest couple, the impression is more of a Berkeley social studies professor plus a grizzled, Stellenbosch farmer.) In the early 1990s, they began planting a 50-acre vineyard, situated on open ground, but their tasting room plans were not without heated local controversy in this quiet corner of the county. In the end, says Linda Schwartz, some of their opponents came back seeking work. The brand-new tasting room is spacious and lavishly spartan, and the wines are likewise clean and focused, in differing ways. The 2010 Chardonnay ($28) has a singular, floral aroma, sparked up with caramel notes and a lingering finish. The 2010 Sea Slopes Pinot Noir ($32) seems spiced with cinnamon, ending on a light, crisp note, contrasting with the flagship 2009 Pinot Noir’s ($42) pure, plush boysenberry fruit and vanilla flavors. The 2007 Pinotage ($40) is an homage to South Africa’s signature grape. With smoky, tarry aromas and a firm, rubbery-tannic finish, it’s an alluring wine reminiscent of Malbec or Nebbiolo. Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery, 15725 Meyers Grade Road, Jenner. Open daily, 10am–6pm. Tasting fee, $10. 707.847.3460.

A Hazy Memory

Why, yes, things do happen out in far west Sonoma County! Behind a gas station out by the ocean comes the annual Fishstock celebration, a threeday event of music, food and fun. While swimmingly enjoying grilled summer goodies and local wines, you can float by the community market for some fresh produce or listen to Dead Cat Hat, the Jennerators and Miss Jane play at Cafe Aquatica. And even though most outside of the North Bay have never heard of this small town, I’m sure barbecue oysters and king salmon tacos are nothing to miss. Follow the currents to this lesser known part of the coast (make sure to bring your GPS) this Labor Day weekend from Saturday, Sept. 1, to Monday, Sept. 3, at Jenner Community Club. 10398 Hwy. 1, Jenner. Noon–6pm. $5. 707.865.2771.

What’s on the airwaves these days? Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen, Demi Lovato and man, that goddamn Gotye song . . . if you’ve been sick of the overplayed pop music on the radio, then turning your ears to Marin might be the choice for you. Classical and jazz pianist George Winston hits the 88s for “Summer Show,” a concert benefiting the community and cultural center. This Grammy award winner harmonizes with local chef Chuck Edwards, who serves farm-to-table dinners beforehand to fill the air with chords of musical notes and savory flavors. Witness these masters of the keyboard and cutting board on Saturday, Sept. 1, at Dance Palace. 503 B St., Point Reyes Station. Dinner, 6pm; concert, 8pm. $18–$36; $100 for dinner. 415.663.1075.

What’s cooking in the Napa Valley Opera House Jazz Kitchen this week? At first glance, the twangy banjo might not seem to match well with smooth-asmayo jazz, but after witnessing Bela Fleck with the Marcus Roberts Trio, you’ll see they’re as odd and excellent a pairing as cheddar cheese and apple pie. Give them a taste test on Tuesday, Sept. 4, at 8pm. $60–$65. If that doesn’t suit your palate, try velvetvoiced Madeleine Peyroux and Brit-born Rebecca Pidgeon. After Pidgeon opens the night with some Ruby Blue folk pop, Peyroux performs with her signature “postmodernist coolness” on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 8pm. $40–$45. Where’s all this going down? At the Napa Valley Opera House, 1030 Main St., Napa. 707.226.7372.

Monophonics are everything that their single-sounding band name is not. This psychedelic soul and funk band from across the bay plays everything from “cinematic soul, heavy funk and ’60s rock to spaghetti Western laced with yellow sunshine acid.” Their music is sure to sit fuzzily In Your Brain, the band’s newest record and their first for the legendary San Francisco fuck-souljazz imprint Ubiquity Records. These cosmic dance-groove synthesizers are definitely going to hit more than one note in listeners—especially at the lowceilinged Sweetwater—so turn it up on Friday, Aug. 31, at Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 9pm. $15. 415.388.1100.

TO WIT Cat Thompson and Darren Bridgett mix it up in ‘The Liar.’

Oh So Clever ‘The Liar’ a showcase for wordplay BY DAVID TEMPLETON

D

avid Ives’ entertainingly silly farce The Liar is a smart comedy about stupid people, adapted loosely from Pierre Corneille’s 1644 play Le Menteur. Ives (Venus in Fur) is known for his aggressively playful use of language, so it is no surprise that in adapting the 368year-old text, he opted to stick with the original’s structure of rhyming couplets. Yes, in The Liar—the third show in Marin Shakespeare Company’s summer trio of plays—everybody speaks in rhyme, though Ives occasionally stretches the definition of “rhyme” to its extreme, pairing the words “Louvre” and “Move-re,” “Isabelle” and “visa-belle,” even offering the

tortured observation, “You cannot speak the truth / To Christian, Muslim, Hindu or . . . Jew-th.” Directed by Robert Currier with plenty of comic sass, The Liar follows the antics of compulsive liar Dorante (an in-his-element Darren Bridgett), who has come to town in search of a wealthy woman to marry. The dashing newcomer causes a flurry of local chatter with his stories of adventure and bravery in war, none of which is true. Dorante spins a wild web of fabrications, each one more outrageous than the last. Unflappable, he tells new lies to explain his last ones, managing to keep ahead of everyone . . . for a while. After engaging the services of Cliton (Stephen Muterspaugh), a servant for hire who is incapable of telling a fib, Dorante encounters a pair of well-to-do ladies: the sexy and vivacious Clarece (Cat Thompson) and the lovely but reserved Lucrece (Elena Wright). Instantly smitten with Clarece, and unimpressed with the silent Lucrece (he nicknames her “the clam”), Dorante somehow gets their names mixed up . . . and the lies pile up thicker and thicker. The cast is first-rate, sinking its collective teeth into Ives’ outrageous rhymes and ridiculous wordplay with a joy matched only by the script itself. As Alcippe, Clarice’s sensitive but proneto-anger fiancé, James Hiser is a stitch, managing to make his snarling reactions both pathetic and endearing. Natasha Noel, as identical twin servants to Clarece and Lucrece, is a delight, as is Jarion Monroe as Dorante’s loving but clueless father. The story is occasionally confusing, but then the plot is not the point of Ives’ tongue-twisty romp. Late in the show, Dorante tells Lucrece, “You may be a bivalve . . . but you’re my valve.” The point of The Liar is solely to give David Ives the opportunity to write lines like that. ‘The Liar’ runs Friday–Sunday through Sept. 23 at Forest Meadows Amphitheatre. Dominican University, 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael. Friday– Saturday, 8pm; Sunday, 4pm. $20–$35. 415.499.4488.

STIRRING THE POT Philip Seymour Hoffman is a Scientologist figure in ‘The Master.’

Opening Credits Twelve films for the fall

BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

T

he Master’ (October) is Paul Thomas Anderson’s exciting new film, an immersive study of charlatanism and the rise of a figure resembling L. Ron Hubbard (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) through a softheaded, simian pal (a revelatory Joaquin Phoenix). ‘Samsara’ (October) follows up the tech-bad/spirituality-good wordless documentary Baraka from Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, while the thriller ‘Looper’ (Sept. 28), co-starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has a criminal mob whisking victims into the past. In ‘Trouble with the Curve’ (Sept. 21), Robert Lorenz directs colleague Clint Eastwood as an aged baseball scout on the road with his daughter (Amy Adams), and ‘Argo’ (Oct. 12) is director Ben Affleck’s account of how a fake film crew rescued hostages taken during the Iranian revolution. Similarly splitting the difference between filmmakers and madmen: Oct. 12’s ‘Seven Psychopaths’ has Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits in Martin McDonagh’s comedy of a screenwriter who falls in with vengeful gangsters. ‘Killing Them Softly’ (Oct. 19) has Anzac director Andrew Dominik

leading Brad Pitt and Ray Liotta through a New Orleans–transplanted version of the Boston-set 1974 novel Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins. After Joe Wright’s ‘Anna Karenina’ (September), there’s ‘Cloud Atlas’ (Oct. 26), the Wachowski-produced, Tom Tykwer-directed adaptation of David Mitchell’s 2004 bestseller. The fantasydrama is constructed on the theory of eternal return and acted out by a bigname cast, including Tom Hanks. ‘Flight’ (Nov. 2) by Robert Zemeckis is boilable to the pitch: “What if airline pilot Sully Sullenberger had been drunk when he landed flight 1549 in the Hudson River?” Denzel Washington is the tarnished hero with the rocketjockey name “Whip Whitaker.” Nobody cares if James Bond has had a few vodkas before crashing a plane. Dead again, 007 (Daniel Craig) is resurrected to find out who rendered MI-6 more permeable than usual. Director Sam Mendes threatens to make ‘Skyfall’ (Nov. 9) a drama as much as an array of thrilling cities and bravura action. ‘Lincoln’ (Nov. 16) has Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner collaborating on the subject of the most fascinating man the United States ever produced. Daniel Day-Lewis plays the president to Jared Harris’ Grant and Sally Field’s Mary Todd Lincoln. Not enough? Oct. 4–14 is the 35th Mill Valley Film Festival.

Reaching Out Grand Hand expands to our land Out of all the cities on a map of the United States, the Grand Hand Gallery has extended its grand index ďŹ nger and pointed to downtown Napa. Owner Ann Ruhr Pifer with manager Kristina Young cut the red ribbon to its new Bay Area location this year, expanding to a storefront on Main Street. The galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;aptly named for Piferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affinity for authentic work that shows â&#x20AC;&#x153;the hand of the artistâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;features the work of contemporary artists and craftspeople from across the country utilizing diverse media, ranging from clay, wood, glass, metal, ďŹ ber and metals. The Grand Hand has already received much praise from its hometown in St. Paul, Minn., where the gallery ďŹ rst opened in August 2004, deemed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best of the Citiesâ&#x20AC;? in the Midwest for the past two years. Give the gallery a hand and check out â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drawn from Nature,â&#x20AC;? a show running September to October, featuring Napa artists Patti Wessman and Maash Pascal.

CRITIC’S CHOICE

Three” and other favorites. Times vary. Fri-Sun through Sep 9. $22-$24. Andrews Hall, Sonoma Community Center, 276 E Napa St, Sonoma.

BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of August 29

ARIES (March 21–April 19) I’m afraid your vibes are slightly out of tune. Can you do something about that, please? Meanwhile, your invisible friend could really use a Tarot reading, and your houseplants would benefit from a dose of Mozart. Plus—and I hope I’m not being too forward here—your charmingly cluttered spots are spiraling into chaotic sprawl, and your slight tendency to overreact is threatening to devolve into a major proclivity. As for that rather shabby emotional baggage of yours, would you consider hauling it to the dump? In conclusion, my dear Ram, you’re due for a few adjustments.

Last of the Red Hot Lovers Neil Simon play asks if a man in a midlife crisis can find happiness by trying and failing to have affairs with three different women between 3 and 5pm Times vary. Thurs-Sun through Sep 23. $12-$22. 32Ten Studios, 3210 Kerner Blvd, San Rafael. 800.717.3210.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Robert Currier directs outdoor production set in Hawaii where the scent of hibiscus and twang of ukuleles will permeate Shakespeare’s story of lunatics, lovers and poets. Dates and times vary. Through Sep 30. $20-$35. Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, Dominican University, San Rafael.

Moon Over Buffalo This wacky farce centers on a has-been acting couple touring in Buffalo in 1953 with “Cyrano de Bergerac” and “Private Lives.” Times vary. Thurs-Sun through Sep 16. $19-$23. Raven Theater, 115 North St, Healdsburg. 707.433.3145.

The Real ‘Wire’ Jonathon Kozol updates tales of America’s poor Reading a Jonathon Kozol book is intense. It’s like reading a less police-driven script of The Wire, but just as jaw-dropping and eyebrowraising. . . . and it’s real. Mostly, Kozol writes about children. In his latest book, Fire in the Ashes: TwentyFive Years Among the Poorest Children in America, he revisits subjects from his earlier books, published from 1990 to 2005. Kids who lived in the Martinique, a poor housing complex about 15 blocks from New York’s theater district, now have kids of their own, or their parents have died, or they moved from the meanest New York streets to rural Montana only to find depression and anger destroy their lives. Just 15 pages of this book makes my First World problems seem that much more insignificant. But Fire in the Ashes isn’t wholly depressing, and the positive stories shine even brighter because of this. Kozol’s journalistic detail is sprinkled with reflective empathy, and he keeps a professional tone, making for a most impactful delivery. Jonathon Kozol discusses his latest book in a literary luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 6, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. Noon. $60 includes lunch and book.—Nicolas Grizzle

Is happiness mostly just an absence of pain? If so, I bet you’ve been pretty content lately. But what if a more enchanting and exciting kind of bliss were available? Would you have the courage to go after it? Could you summon the chutzpah and the zeal and the visionary confidence to head out in the direction of a new frontier of joy? I completely understand if you feel shy about asking for more. You might worry that to do so would be greedy or put you at risk of losing what you have already scored. But I feel it’s my duty to cheer you on. The potential rewards looming just over the hump are magnificent.

clever. Joyce reported that he, too, enjoyed the art of punning. “You are a deep-sea diver,” Jung replied. “She is drowning.” I’m going to apply a comparable distinction to you, Libra. These days you may sometimes worry that you’re in over your head in the bottomless abyss. But I’m here to tell you that in all the important ways, you’re like a deep-sea diver. (The Joyce-Jung story comes from Edward Hoagland’s Learning to Eat Soup.)

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

No false advertising this week, Scorpio. Don’t pretend to be a purebred if you’re actually a mutt, and don’t act like you know it all when you really don’t. For that matter, you shouldn’t portray yourself as an unambitious amateur if you’re actually an aggressive pro, and you should avoid giving the impression that you want very little when in fact you’re a burning, churning throb of longing. I realize it may be tempting to believe that a bit of creative deceit would serve a holy cause, but it won’t. As much as you possibly can, make outer appearances reflect inner truths.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) I’ve got some medicine for you to try, Gemini. It’s advice from the writer Thomas Merton. “To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns,” he wrote, “to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times.” It’s always a good idea to heed that warning, of course. But it’s especially crucial for you right now. The best healing work you can do is to shield your attention from the din of the outside world and tune in reverently to the glimmers of the inside world.

In Christian lore, the serpent is the bad guy that’s the cause of all humanity’s problems. He coaxes Adam and Eve to disobey God, which gets them expelled from Paradise. But in Hindu and Buddhist mythology, there are snake gods that sometimes do good deeds and perform epic services. They’re called nagas. In one Hindu myth, a naga prince carries the world on his head. And in a Buddhist tale, the naga king uses his seven heads to give the Buddha shelter from a storm just after the great one has achieved enlightenment. In regards to your immediate future, Sagittarius, I foresee you having a relationship to the serpent power that’s more like the Hindu and Buddhist version than the Christian. Expect vitality, fertility and healing.

CANCER (June 21–July 22)

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19)

I dreamed you were a magnanimous taskmaster nudging the people you care about to treat themselves with more conscientious tenderness. You were pestering them to raise their expectations and hew to higher standards of excellence. Your persistence was admirable! You coaxed them to waste less time and make long-range educational plans and express themselves with more confidence and precision. You encouraged them to give themselves a gift now and then and take regular walks by bodies of water. They were suspicious of your efforts to make them feel good, at least in the early going. But eventually they gave in and let you help them.

LEO (July 23–August 22) In the spirit of Sesame Street, I’m happy to announce that this week is brought to you by the letter T, the number 2 and the color blue. Here are some of the T words you should put extra emphasis on: togetherness, trade-offs, tact, timeliness, tapestry, testability, thoroughness, teamwork and Themis (goddess of order and justice). To bolster your mastery of the number 2, meditate on interdependence, balance and collaboration. As for blue, remember that its presence tends to bring stability and depth. VIRGO (August 23–September 22)

In Lewis Carroll’s book Through the Looking Glass, the Red Queen tells Alice that she is an expert at believing in impossible things. She brags that there was one morning when she managed to embrace six improbable ideas before she even ate breakfast. I encourage you to experiment with this approach, Capricorn. Have fun entertaining all sorts of crazy notions and unruly fantasies. Please note that I am not urging you to actually put those beliefs into action. The point is to give your imagination a good work-out.

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) I’m not necessarily advising you to become best friends with the dark side of your psyche. I’m merely requesting that the two of you cultivate a more open connection. The fact of the matter is that if you can keep a dialogue going with this shadowy character, it’s far less likely to trip you up or kick your ass at inopportune moments. In time you might even come to think of its chaos as being more invigorating than disorienting. You may regard it as a worthy adversary and even an interesting teacher. PISCES (February 19–March 20) You need more

In the creation myths of Easter Island’s native inhabitants, the god who made humanity was named Makemake. He was also their fertility deity. Today the name Makemake also belongs to a dwarf planet that was discovered beyond the orbit of Neptune in 2005. It’s currently traveling through the sign of Virgo. I regard it as being the heavenly body that best symbolizes your own destiny in the coming months. In the spirit of the original Makemake, you will have the potential to be a powerful maker. In a sense you could even be the architect and founder of your own new world. Here’s a suggestion: look up the word “creator” in a thesaurus, write the words you find there on the back of your business card and keep the card in a special place until May 2013.

magic in your life, Pisces. You’re suffering from a lack of sublimely irrational adventures and eccentrically miraculous epiphanies and inexplicably delightful interventions. At the same time, I think it’s important that the magic you attract into your life is not pure fluff. It needs some grit. It’s got to have a kick that keeps you honest. That’s why I suggest that you consider getting the process started by baking some unicorn poop cookies. They’re sparkly, enchanting, rainbow-colored sweets, but with an edge. Ingredients include sparkle gel, disco dust, star sprinkles—and a distinctly roguish attitude. Recipe is here: tinyurl.com/ UnicornPoopCookies.

LIBRA (September 23–October 22) When the writer James Joyce began to suspect that his adult daughter Lucia was mentally ill, he sought advice from psychologist Carl Jung. After a few sessions with her, Jung told her father that she was schizophrenic. How did he know? A telltale sign was her obsessive tendency to make puns, many of which were quite
