Yes on Measure P In Mayor Don Laneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter of Sept. 25, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Desal Affects All,â&#x20AC;? he refers to revealing secrets, scrutinizing arguments, making stuff up and incorrectness. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set his record straight. It remains bewildering how Lane, along with two other serial city council members, continues to lead the charge toward constructing an environmentally-financially risky and â&#x20AC;&#x153;expandableâ&#x20AC;? desal systemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;without a mandate from voters and water rate payers. To the exclusion of an array of sustainable, effective, and less costly water supply and management options, Lane voted to authorize $14M toward the development of â&#x20AC;&#x153;desal as the best solution.â&#x20AC;? Most of this scarce community capital has gone to a retain a stable of desal industry consultants to investigate, plan and promote public acceptance. If built, the $130Mplus regional desal factory would be located on a seven-acre Westside site below the UCSC campus. Lane also rejected a community-driven

request to establish neutral fact-finding arbitration to address desal-related misinformation, factual omissions and inaccuracies. Furthermore, he opposes the passage of Measure P (â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Desal Without Voter Approvalâ&#x20AC;?) on the November ballot. PAUL GRATZ Co-author of Measure P, Santa Cruz

McPherson Will Unite Starting with the fifth district run for supervisor, a very disturbing trend has developed amongst the supporters of the Eric Hammer campaign in letters to the editor, many having to retract their statements. I personally endorsed Bruce McPherson and received hang-up calls and an obscene message. George Wiley, a Democrat and highly respected SLV governing school board trustee,

and the driving force to build the SLV school library, dropped out of the supervisorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race and endorsed Bruce McPherson. He too has been intimidated by comments made threatening that he would never be elected again in the SLV. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we have a choice? I look at the McPherson-Keeley partnership as a real plus for our district. Being able to set aside party lines and get the job done is a good example for politicians everywhere to follow. We need the experience of Bruce McPherson, a competent, ethical leader. Bruce will bring balance to the present board, protecting the environment, our schools and the people who live here.

No on Prop. 32 Working families in California are facing the biggest and most devastating attack on our rights this election in November. Prop 32, set to appear on the ballot, is a deceptive and destructive measure that threatens the jobs, wages and retirement of workers like usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while at the same time giving corporate special interests even more power and influence over our politics and government. The proponents of the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop Special Interest Money Now Actâ&#x20AC;? claim the measure would actually lessen the big-money influence in Sacramento, but the truth is, the ex-CEOs and ultra-wealthy anti-worker activists behind this measure secretly wrote in a whole heap of exemptions for themselves and their Wall Street cronies. We cannot afford to sit back while corporate CEOs and billionaires trample our rights in order to push their own self-serving agenda. CHRIS KNERR Santa Rosa




Correction In last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover story on garden kitchens (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fresh Approach,â&#x20AC;? page 13), Oak Tree Ristorante chef Sebastian Nobile was also incorrectly identified as the owner. George and Kathy Topusidis are the owners of Oak Tree. Also, the phone number for the Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest was incorrect. The correct phone number is 831.476.4560. Santa Cruz Weekly regrets the error.

Currents IF THIS VOTEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S A ROCKING, DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T BOTHER KNOCKING Our recommendations for Santa Cruz City Council are Don Lane, Micah Posner, Richelle Noroyan and Cynthia Mathews.

Ballot Points Santa Cruz Weekly presents part one of our recommendations for the Nov. 6 election Santa Cruz City Council DON LANE: Our straight-talking, pragmatic mayor knows how to work well with others and help various groups get what they want. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helped both with Project 180/180, which assists the most at-risk homeless and (hopefully) saves us all money, and with the Santa Cruz Warriors plan, which seems to have appeased neighbors and sports fans alike. Accepted all voluntary spending limits: Yes MICAH POSNER: As a candidate, Posner has grown into more than just â&#x20AC;&#x153;the bike guy.â&#x20AC;? The Lower Ocean resident wants to relax strict planning ordinances, encourage startup businesses and increase urban density. The environmentalist also hopes to strengthen tourism on Twitter and the tech community with citywide

broadband Internet. Accepted all voluntary spending limits: Yes RICHELLE NOROYAN: Noroyan spent six years as in the office of Assemblymember Ira Ruskin and four years on the transportation and public works commission. She brings in innovative ideas. She would like to see the city someday staff a fulltime mayor, which might restore balance to a system where staff currently wield much more influence than the elected part-time councilmembers. Accepted all voluntary spending limits: No CYNTHIA MATHEWS: Four-time mayor Mathews may not be fount of new ideas, but she has a vast knowledge of the city. Even now, Mathewsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;serving on boards like economic development and the Museum of Art and History to name a fewâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;puts in more hours as a volunteer than some councilmembers get paid for. Accepted all voluntary spending limits: Yes

County Measures Measure L: Pajaro Valley School Bond: Yes This $150 million measure, downsized from a $250 million shopping list, removes asbestos and mold, installs solar panels, gets schools up to fire codes and would be paid back over the next 35 years. Adequate schools donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come cheap. Measure M: Pacific Elementary Bond: Yes Like Pajaro Valley schools, the Pacific Elementary district (made up of a single school in Davenport) wants to replace aging roofs, make tech improvement and make much-needed fixes to the tune of $830,000 in bonds for those in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with an independent committee to watch the funds. Measure N: Santa Cruz County Hotel Tax: Yes Measure N raises TOT taxes charged

to vacation rentals and hotels to 11 percent, just a 1.5 percent increaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an important slice of revenue for a cashstrapped county with a growing list of responsibilities. Measure O: City of Capitola Tax Increase: Yes This quarter-cent sales tax increase provides a boost to a city hit hard financially by the 2008 recession (massive flooding, which happened in 2011, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help). Measure P: Santa Cruz Desalination: No Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, this measure was born out of some votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; anger at the Santa Cruz City Council over their handling of desalination. Whether or not that anger is legitimate, this measure most definitely is not. All it would do is give city voters the right to vote on any desal proposal. However, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already been promised the right to vote on any desal proposal, making this the worst kind of proposed legislation: the redundant kind. Measure Q: Santa Cruz City Hotel Tax: Yes This measure would raise the TOT taxes by 1 percent to the same rates proposed for the county in Measure N. Tourists, who already impact on the city infrastructure when they visit, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what hit them. Actually, they probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice. Measure R: Watsonville Mobile Home Parks: Yes With legal threats to rent control constantly looming, Watsonville mobile home park residents approached their city and said they would be willing to pay this monthly $5 fee to help cover the cost of defending their comfy, reasonably priced metal homes. Fair enough.

State Propositions Yes on Prop. 30, No on Prop. 38 Props. 30 and 38 both raise income taxes, diverting funds to where they are sorely needed: schools. But they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t both go into effectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;each contains a section stating that only the proposition receiving more votes can become law. So which to vote for? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the

No on Prop 32 Prop. 32 sounds attractive, with its supportersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; resounding slogan of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop Special Interest Money Now!â&#x20AC;? The measure is dressed in bipartisan garb, stating that it will ban both corporate and labor contributions to political candidates. But Prop. 32 is primarily backed by the smear-ad-happy American Future Fund, a Republican group registered as a 501c(4), meaning that it can receive unlimited contributions and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to disclose its donors. And Prop. 32 does nothing to regulate Super PACs or other independent expenditure committees like AFF, so the political moneymakers that most need reform are completely (intentionally?) overlooked. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question that the ties between politicians and specialinterest money from across the political spectrum need to be loosened, and Prop. 32 would stop the ethically shady practice of taking automatic deductions from employee paychecks, but a proposition that cripples campaign donations without touching independent expenditure loopholes will only encourage more reckless spending. No on Prop. 33 When California voters shot down Prop. 17 in 2010, they sent a message to Mercury Insurance CEO George Joseph that his deceptive initiative was bogus. Voters shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get fooled again, as Joseph has returned with the same slightly altered proposal. The idea is to allow auto insurance companies the ability to offer â&#x20AC;&#x153;discountsâ&#x20AC;? to drivers who can prove theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve purchased car insurance continuously for five years. If that smells fishy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because it is, and Joseph has spent more than $8 million of his own money to deodorize it. Instead of discounting rates, Prop. 33 â&#x20AC;&#x153;will allow insurance companies to increase cost of insurance,â&#x20AC;? according to the attorney general. The California Department of Insurance has said that the initiative â&#x20AC;&#x153;will result in a surchargeâ&#x20AC;? for many drivers, and it penalizes responsible drivers who for whatever reason had no need for auto insurance in the pastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;people who bike to work, become injured and cannot drive, or live in cities with dependable public transportation. If Mercury Insuranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrible reputation doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sink this initiative, the intelligence of the voters should. Part two of our endorsements will run in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue.

tricky part. In addition to a 1/4-cent California sales tax increase, Prop. 30 only taxes high-income earners, starting with those who make over $250,000 a year. Prop. 38, on the other hand, taxes everyone making over $7,316 annually, using a progressive scale from .4 percent on the lowest end to 2.2 percent for top earners. If you think the top 1 percent should do its share, Prop. 30 has an edge. But Prop. 38 outlines exactly how those dollars would be spent in clearer and more convincing detail than Prop. 30. While Prop. 38 seems like a better piece of legislation, Brown, playing his role of the no-nonsense dad in the financially broken home of California, will make good on threatened â&#x20AC;&#x153;trigger cutsâ&#x20AC;? of more than $5 billion from Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already strapped education system if Prop. 30 doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass. Although Prop. 38 is expected to raise roughly $10 million over its 12-year lifespan, if passed, the trigger cuts would still take effect. Voting for the little-known activistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s measure at the expense of the highly publicized Prop. 30 isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wise. With Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranking of 47th in the nation in perpupil spending, neither is voting no on both. In this complex political morass, Prop. 30 emerges as the best choice. No on Prop. 31 At more than 8,000 words, Prop. 31 attempts to refashion the way the state budgets in a complicated and potentially unilateral fashion. The ballot measure takes the budget cycle from one to two years and sets up the possibility that the minority party (i.e., Republicans) could hold the state hostage on passing revenue measures that require a 2/3 majority vote. This action would then hand over control to the governor to make budget cuts as he or she sees fit. Also in Prop. 31, there is the confusing Community Strategic Action Plan, which would allow counties, cities and school districts to break away from the state and allot money as they choose, rather than take direction from the state. Local control of funding is always enticing, but this option means more bickering, stagnation and disruption to services as locals duke it out for dollars. And while some counties are in relatively good financial standing, other could design their own demise with poor decisions. The best part of the ballot measure is that it would force legislators to make bills public three days before taking a vote. That could be done without such a cumbersome package of new laws.

Proof of Life Filmmakers with local ties tell stories of extraordinary people in extraordinary situations at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pacific Rim Film Festival BY STEVE PALOPOLI


nly a handful of the selections in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pacific Rim Film Festival (Oct. 1924) are by filmmakers with local roots, and perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merely coincidence that they are among the best. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncanny is the synchronicity in play among three of themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Where Heaven Meets Hell (Oct. 23, 8:15 pm, Cabrillo Crocker Theater), The Power of Two (Oct. 22, 8:15 pm, Rio Theatre) and Playing With Fire (Oct. 22, 5 pm, Rio Theatre). (Note: all three of these screenings will feature Q&A sessions.) They all take the approach, to varying extents, of visual poetry over exposition. They all feature ordinary people in extraordinary situations. And all came out of working relationships in which the filmmakers were able to establish a remarkable level of intimacy with their subjects. In separate interviews, the people behind the films sometimes even echo each other when they speak about how they achieved these three very different and yet strangely connected, truly compelling portraits.

ALMOST PARADISE Opposite page and above: scenes from Sasha Friedlanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where Heaven Meets Hellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Where Heaven Meets Hell


atching the parade of gorgeous images in Santa Cruz native Sasha Friedlanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s directorial debut, one is haunted by the feeling that something is not right. Such remarkable displays of beauty normally stimulate a certain kind of delight in that part of our brain that craves visual excitement. But in Where Heaven Meets Hell, they have the power to disturb. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because underneath their elegant surface, there is cruelty. The Kawah Ijen volcano that inspires awe as an Indonesian national parkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for which tourists are charged entry based on the size of their camerasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is also home to a sulfur mine manned by workers whose health and safety is constantly in jeopardy. It is a place of poverty and struggle, as potentially deadly as it is beautiful. Director Sasha Friedlander makes no apologies for framing the story of these miners and their families with the kind of cinematography that makes the landscape, or even a yellow cloud of sulfur, look absolutely exquisite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was actually what drew me to make the film in the first place, because I found that fascinating,â&#x20AC;? she says by phone


from her current home in New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get there, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely otherworldly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spectacular. And then to see the minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work there, that contrast, it blew me away.â&#x20AC;? The 27-year-old Friedlander found her way to East Java by a strange and winding route. Growing up in Santa Cruz as the daughter of local artist Sara Friedlander and her musician husband Cliff, she first visited Indonesia when she was seven, and vacationed regularly there with her family. She took up Balinese dancing, and as a teenager was voted the best young dancer in Bali. After graduating from UCLA with a focus in documentary film and dance in 2007, she moved to Indonesia and pursued journalism, helping to launch the International Bali Post. She traveled to Kawah Ijen after some friends showed her pictures from a bike trip and, after learning of the mine, began developing the idea of a film about the workers there. But it took her two years to get back, and even then she almost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, thanks to the incredible difficulty of getting a permit to shoot from the Indonesian government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a nightmare,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was me calling the embassy for eight months before they gave it to me. I received the

permit two days before I flew out.â&#x20AC;? An early Kickstarter campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which many supporters in Santa Cruz contributed toâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;helped her raise the money for the film, and for two two-month stretches she and her small crew pretty much lived with the miners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone had us at their home at one point or another,â&#x20AC;? she says of the mining community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They trusted me, and they let me in from day one.â&#x20AC;? The resulting film recalls the visual poetics of Ron Frickeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films like Baraka, mixed with hard documentary realism. But she says her biggest inspiration was Yung Changâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2007 documentary Up the Yangtze, especially in the relationship between filmmaker and subject. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intimacy that the director was able to achieve, it seemed unreal,â&#x20AC;? she says. She was able to capture some unreal moments herself, as when an impromptu interview with the owner of the mine led to him ordering one of his subordinates to eat sulfur on camera to show it was not toxic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was so bizarre, it was hard to keep a straight face,â&#x20AC;? she admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What is happening? This is insane.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

POP LIFE The Stenzel twins tell their story in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Power of Twoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

The Power of Two




was very drawn to the ideas of breath and breathing,â&#x20AC;? Marc Smolowitz says of the underlying rhythms in his documentary The Power of Two, which follows Anabel and Isabel Stenzel, half-Japanese identical twins living in Redwood City. Their lifelong fight with cystic fibrosis made them the faces of the battle against appalling organ donor laws in Japan, and was the basis for their memoir of the same name. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder which clogs the body organs, especially the lungs, restricting breathing in those who suffer from it. Since there is no treatment for the disease, organ transplant is the only cure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted people to be aware of their breath when they were watching the film,â&#x20AC;? says Smolowitz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to remind people who are healthy that we go through our days effortlessly.â&#x20AC;? A graduate of UCSC now teaching in the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film department, Smolowitz has made a name for himself as a producer over the last decade, on films like Trembling Before G-d, a documentary about gay and lesbian Orthodox Jews, and the Academy Award-nominated retro-radical study, The Weather Underground. So perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that his first feature-length documentary

came to be because of his professional connectionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but not at all like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect. In the spring of 2009, Smolowitz got an email from an acquaintance, Silicon Valley lawyer and political player Andrew Byrnes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community leader,â&#x20AC;? says Smolowitz of Byrnes, who will appear with him at a Q&A at the film festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always had tons of respect for the guy, but I never knew anything about his personal life.â&#x20AC;? Byrnes revealed that he is married to Isabel, gave him a quick rundown of her story, and asked him if he knew any filmmakers that might be interested in traveling with them to Japan to film their appearances speaking out about the organ donor laws. Smolowitz was immediately fascinated by the twinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; story and told Byrnes he himself wanted to go. Soon after came his first experience with the power of the twins, as their tour of Japan took the country by storm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was amazing in Japan, because people there donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about illness,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were speaking the kind of truth that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoken.â&#x20AC;? He then spent several months in 2010 filming the part of the documentary set in the U.S. , and by then was completely drawn into their world.




eith Muscutt has a confession to make about the filming of Playing With Fire in the remote community of Celendin, in the Peruvian Andes, on which he assisted director Gustavo Vazquez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell our respective wives and girlfriends all the details,â&#x20AC;? he says. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they would have had to be uncomfortably specific about the hazards of documenting the story of the fireworks makers there who craft their explosives from gunpowder the way the Chinese did in the 15th century. Not to give away too much from the film itself, but such hazards do include things blowing up in terrifying ways. There was the time Vazquez was blown completely off the camera by a blast, and Muscutt tried to escape the pyrotechnics by running into another roomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which he then realized was itself filled with more fireworks. Anecdotes like this make Muscuttâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description of the filming all the more unexpected: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had the time of our lives,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We laughed ourselves to sleep every night.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We joked a lot,â&#x20AC;? confirms Vazquez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fantastic collaboration.â&#x20AC;? Muscutt is a former assistant Dean of the Arts at UCSC, whose love affair with Peru has lasted decades. He has traveled there on countless anthropological and archeological expeditions. His discovery of an unlooted tomb from the ancient Chachapoya culture was the subject of the History Channelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cliff Mummies of the Andes special. He was acquainted with a few of the families in Celendin, and upon learning of their huge, fireworks-laden annual





tribute to their patron saint, he thought heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d document it himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when I started looking at the footage I shot,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it looked much more like a Fellini film than a documentary.â&#x20AC;? He took it back to Vazquez, whom he knew casually as an associate professor in the UCSC film department. They brought a shared love of irony, surrealism and magical realism to the film, which not only accounts for its wild imagery, but also its complete lack of an agenda in laying out Celendinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask the audience to judge them in any particular way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We brought two different pairs of eyes that were in sync, in harmony,â&#x20AC;? says Muscutt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our intention was for it to be a poetic rather than prosaic film. It kind of morphed into â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;magical documentary.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Vazquez has another term for it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;involuntary surrealism.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was inspired in that approach by Latin American writers,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that blend between magic and empirical science and belief systems. This is not a passive filmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not telling the audience how to see this, just unfolding the storyline with a visual experience.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an experience that seems heavily influenced by surrealist director Luis BuĂąuel, especially his early documentary Land Without Bread. But the process of making the film was entirely documentary, with the two-man crew staying with the main characters in the film for weeks, and getting very close to them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That kind of intimacy allows you to work in that community in a different way,â&#x20AC;? says Vazquez. 0

5 More Films Not to Miss at Pac Rim Fest CAFĂ&#x2030; SEOUL (Oct. 21, noon, Rio Theatre) An eager food writer stumbles upon a hole in the wall confectionary while visiting South Korea. Enamored with the quality of the sweets, he is soon pulled into a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner drama, culminating in the laughably unlikely, but heartwarming nonetheless, face-off between two pastry chef brothers judged by a mafia boss whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got his finger in both pies, so to speak. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central message is the importance of honoring family tradition. Thankfully, it depicts this with some gusto: fist fighting, a chase scene and a taste-test montage add some spice to this sweet tale. (Georgia Perry) JAKE SHIMABUKURO: LIFE ON FOUR STRINGS (Oc.t 20, Del Mar, 8pm) At 35 years old, Jake Shimabukuro is struggling, but not in any personal or financial sense. The ukulele superstar appears happily married, and his talent has given him a successful life. But Shimabukuro constantly vies for his own approval: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like you deserve it, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you works extra hard. For someone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother writing lyrics, he sure is eloquent. He also talks about a difficult childhood and how a YouTube video of him playing â&#x20AC;&#x153;While My Guitar Gently Weepsâ&#x20AC;? changed his life. There is a Q&A with director Tadashi Nakamura after the film. (Jake Pierce) MARIACHI GRINGO (Oc.t 24, 7pm, Rio Theatre) This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing film at Pac Rim (as always, a benefit for the festival, and preceded by a performance from Mariachi California de Javier Vargas)

stars Shawn Ashmore as a small-town white boy who finds escape from his suffocating life at a local Mexican restaurant, where he apprentices under a veteran mariachi guitarist. He finds his way to Guadalajara to pursue his new dreams, making for some entertaining cultural clashing. (Steve Palopoli) NOODLE (Oct. 19, 6pm, Del Mar) The story of unprepared parents stuck with a child is as old as timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or at least as old as 1987â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Three Men and a Baby. In this version, a cleaning lady leaves her son at an apartment and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return. When the kid tries to escape, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more reminiscent of 1994â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;except that instead of a baby, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a six-year-old Chinese boy. And instead of three villains chasing a youngster though New York, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two gorgeous sisters arguing in Israel. What ultimately unfolds is a touching but gripping mystery thriller about cultural tensions in a globalized world. (JP) THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS (Oct. 19, 8:30pm, Del Mar) We had a hunch that New Zealand was funnier than America when Flight of the Conchords emerged in 2007, but this documentary about a twin-sister lesbian yodeling duo proves that the Kiwis have perfected the art of creating comedy in unexpected musical places. The home video montages of Jools and Lynda Topp chasing goats, and the swanky candlelit interviews with their alter egos. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re insanely talented, completely unprofessional and shamelessly political, and somehow it works. Probably because all they really care about is fun. (Janelle Gleason) 0

I AGAINST I Zion Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zumbi faces his own demons on the new album â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ShadowBoxing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Zion on the Dance Floor Bay Area hip-hop vets Zion I go EDM on new album BY BRANDON ROOS


ion I have long been a staple of the Bay Area hip-hop scene. Ever since the release of 2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critically acclaimed debut, Mind Over Matter, the duoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everadventurous sound has established the Bay as a region thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never afraid of exploring new musical territory. Recently, the Oakland duo finally linked up with long-time friend J. Period to release Bomb First, an old-school style mixtape featuring new Zion I material in addition to tracks from artists the group currently cites as inspiration. Yet again, in an age where mixtapes typically feature original studio tracks, Amp Live and Zumbi took the left field approach in typical Bay fashion. I spoke with Zumbi by phone to find out a bit more about the inspiration behind Zion Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest. SCW: Can you speak a bit more on the title of Zion Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming release, ShadowBoxing, which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been quoted as saying is about â&#x20AC;&#x153;seeking awareness in the darkness of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own psycheâ&#x20AC;?? ZUMBI: Well, man, mainly I had a son. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost two years old. The first nine months to a year of him being in existence was a big transitional time for me. I heard all the stories, but it just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t register for me for a while. Around the ninth month, [I just came] to the full realization that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my son and I have to be a good model for him to be successful

in his life. It made me really look at a lot of the negative things I was doing in my life. SCW: This album carries a bit of an EDM influence. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particularly apparent on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trapped Outâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Re-Load.â&#x20AC;? ZUMBI: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting, man, because [when we were] making this record, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really set out to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;All right, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna do something that sounds more like dance music.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually something we usually do with our albums. With this record, I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amp, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do some slapâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I call bass, heavy 808s and kicks. He started sending me these tracks, and I was like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, exactly!â&#x20AC;? SCW: On the cut â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? you once again link up with Grouch and Eligh. What is it about that partnership thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continually yielded good results for all parties concerned? ZUMBI: Sometimes you just trip up and find something good on the street. You just walk off and you look down and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 bucks on the ground, and you pick it up and you say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Damn, thank you.â&#x20AC;? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where it came from or why, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a good thing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much how our relationship with those guys is.

BILLY JOE SHAVER Every bit the outlaw country pioneer that

Willie Nelson was, but for some reason rarely recognized as such, Billy Joe Shaver has always found a way to get his unique songs out there, whether it be on his classic early albums, a hit like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live Foreverâ&#x20AC;? or writing songs for other artists (including Nelson). Ironically, of course, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better known by some people now for doing the theme songs on Adult Swimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Squidbillies, and for Dale Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where Do You Want It?â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is apparently exactly what Shaver said before he shot a man (not in Reno, and the guy didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t die) in a notorious altercation five years ago that was the subject of Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s song.

No stranger to surf music, Santa Cruz has a long history of appreciation for the instrumental, guitar-driven sound that defines classic surf culture. And rockabilly?

With roots in Mississippi, Memphis and Chicago, Charlie Musselwhite was born to be a blues legend. From the hard times of down-South poverty arises a harmonica master, haunting vocalist and gifted musician who plays with such honesty that he insists his work is â&#x20AC;&#x153;music from the heart.â&#x20AC;? Musselwhite boasts a diverse fanbase across generations and his raw descriptions of his art may help explain his popularity: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the feeling, and about connecting with people. And blues, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real blues, is loaded with feeling.â&#x20AC;? Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $20 adv/$25 door; 9pm. (JG)

DOC WATSON TRIBUTE In May of this year we lost one of the elder statesmen of American roots music. Guitarist Doc Watson, who held living legend status for decades before his passing, contributed greatly to the bluegrass, folk and mountain gospel traditions, leaving behind a vast body of work and a sea of appreciative fans. Paying tribute to Watson are Jim Hurst and Steve Palazzo, two fine pickers in their own right. Hurst, who spent years playing with the Claire Lynch Band, has a unique and flawless fingerpicking style that sets him apart from the pack and Palazzo, a masterful guitarist who is adept in many styles, is a local favorite of the Northern California bluegrass scene.

Director-writer Leslye Headland jumps on the Hangover/Bridesmaids bandwagon with a seemingly darker comedy about Kirsten Dunst and some fellow bridemaids (who used to call the bride â&#x20AC;&#x153;pig faceâ&#x20AC;?) wreaking havoc. BELOVED (NR; 139 min.) French musical follows the soap-operaish stories of a mother and daughter across half a century, as played by real-life mother and daughter Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni. END OF WATCH (R; 109 min.) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end of watch for those who wondered what writerdirector David Ayer has been up to after a rather lengthy break between projects. Having written two of the best badcop movies in memory (Training Day and Dark Blue), heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone with a couple of likable recruits this time, in the form of Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena (but then, could anyone make Jake Gyllenhaal unlikable?) Thanks to a routine traffic stop, they get on the bad side of some druglords. THE EXPENDABLES 2 (R; 102 min.) Revenge is a dish best served old as aging action stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chuck Norris (among others) deliver some punches and explosions to honor the memory of a comrade brutally murdered. FINDING NEMO 3-D (G; 100 min.) Will be he easier or harder to find in 3-D? Hopefully not harder, because Albert Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nerves are shot as it is. FRANKENWEENIE (PG; 87 min.) In a bit of a career slump of late, Tim Burton expands his early short about a re-animated dog (which basically got him fired from Disney) into a full-length animated feature. HOPE SPRINGS (PG-13; 100 min.) Thirty years of marriage have left Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) distant and bored, so they embark on an intensive weeklong counseling session geared to change all that. With Steve Carell. THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET (PG-13; 101 min.) Several of the most famous exploitation flicks have â&#x20AC;&#x153;houseâ&#x20AC;? in their titlesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last House on the Left,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;House on the Edge of the Park,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last House on Dead End Street.â&#x20AC;? So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty crowded horror housing market, but this Jennifer Lawrence hauntyhouse flick is going for more of an upscale puzzle-movie thing. HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA (PG; 91 min.) Adam Sandler and Addy Samberg team up for another movie, but this time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animated and Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the voice of Dracula, so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have to see or hear him. His count runs a hotel for monsters that is stumbled upon by a human boy. Wackiness ensues. LIBERAL ARTS (NR; 97 min.) 35-year-old Jesse returns to his alma mater for his former professorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement party and ultimately falls for a 19-year-old college student. LOOPER (R; 118 min.) Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a hitman who specializes in rubbing out people sent back from the future (nope, close your checkbook, this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually exist yet). Guess who one of his targets turns out to be? If you said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;his future self as played by Bruce Willis,â&#x20AC;? you have watched exactly enough Twilight Zone reruns in your life to guess every sci-fi premise. THE MASTER (R; 137 min.) Paul Thomas Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most accomplished film to date tells of the partnership between a shell-shocked Navy vet of 1950 named Freddie (Joaquin Phoenix) and a dapper, biggerthan-life fraud, Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman). THE ORANGES (R; 90 min.) After a five-year absence, Nina Ostroff goes home for the holidays and begins an affair with her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; neighbor and best friend (Hugh Laurie). THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER (PG13; 103 min.) I know, I know, it must be a short film. Ha ha. But apparently there are perks to be found in this story of two seniors who take an introverted freshman under their wing. PITCH PERFECT (PG13; 112 min.) When college freshman Becca joins her universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a capella group in this Glee-like musical comedy, she injects some much-needed competitive spirit into the group. RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION (R; 95 min.) Incredibly, this videogame film franchise is now five films in. Warning: director Paul W.S. Anderson will keep making them if you keep going to see them. Could this whole series be an Umbrella Corporation plot?

Erin Justus Lampel Companion Bakers Bread baking seems a little bit like magic and a little bit like childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play. What do you find most intriguing about the act of making bread? Most

SIGN OF THE TIMES Chef Brian Brosenos at the Dream Innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aquarius.



hef Brian Drosenosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new

menu for the Dream Innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful restaurant is designed to win over (1) discerning diners; (2) cost-conscious diners; (3) visitors; and (4) locals. Priced well within the comfort zone of most inquiring foodies, the seasonally evolving menuâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which includes a choice tapas menu for enjoyment in the loungeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is loaded with seasonal ideas, local organic ingredients and tons of vibrant flavor. And when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sipping that mojito in the lounge, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to look up and admire the surfboardlined ceiling. Chef Drosenos brings deep culinary background with major hotel groups to the post heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s held since June, and already he has reimagined the menu, deepened the carnivore options and sourced local organic items from Route One Farms and El Salchichero. In the dining-room-in-progress, tables already offer more generous spacing and, of course, the matchless views of Steamers and

the glistening waves. We began our recent dinner with small tapas plates. One offered a perfect, plump, pan-seared sea scallop, joined by Greek yogurt dusted with black pepper, a fluff of arugula and thin slices of tart, salty preserved lemon. The incredible preserved lemon also made a guest appearance on a tapas plate of grilled prawns sided with smoky tomato jam. Beautiful starter plates both. Glasses of a deeply layered Beauregard 2010 estate Pinot Noir did the rest! The Pinot Noir, a generous pour for $16, showed the complexity and earthy spicing that characterizes the higher vineyards of this appellation.

Knockout Dish A colorful beet salad arrived next, a long line of yellow and red baby beets joined by dill sprouts, pistachios and dots of Laura Chenel goat cheese. But the knockout dish was an entree

intriguing is the fact that bread making requires the skill of paying attention to detail, and relaxing into the repetition of the process. I marvel at how old a tradition it is for many cultures to bake bread for their communities. Famously, bakers rise before dawnâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is that still true? What are the most important steps in making bread? Yes, still true! The most

important step is patience and precise measurements when scaling out ingredients. I suppose every step is important from scaling ingredients to mixing to shaping to fermentation and lastly baking of the loaves! What makes your round seeded sourdough loaves so incredible?

The seeds! They are super tasty, especially when toasted! How do you juggle having a family with the commitment to an artisanal business? Committing to an artisanal business for my family

means to make our business part of our family, from our employees to the daily tasks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely a way of life, and you have to embrace it that way! We are about to bring our own little baker into the world very soon in November, so we will see how family life fits into the bakeshop. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting a great fit!

of succulent, rare hanger steak, crowned with a vinegary chimichurri sauce that played brilliantly against the buttery flavors of the beef. The beef slices were arranged across a field of tiny multi-colored organic carrots, which were supported by exceptional mashed potatoes. The Argentinean specialty sauce blends parsley, oregano, peppers, garlic, oil and vinegar, and invites tinkering with in your own kitchen. The

stellar beef entree was as much as two people could consume for $22. Incredible. Memorable sourdough was served with both olive oil and little rosettes of butter. At sunset, this view is hard to beat. Shimmering waves, longboard veterans out catching slow ridesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;priceless. On Thursdays, a jazz trio romances the lounge starting at 3:30. Aquarius, 175 West Cliff Drive, should be your next reservation. 0
