OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE The first time I really noticed the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band popping up in one of Aaron Carnes’ stories was back in March when he wrote about the instrumental duo Hermano—which was one of my favorite GT music stories of the year because of how it started with an anecdote about how the group once had their entire audience lying on the floor to better absorb its cosmic, meditative soundscapes. By sheer coincidence, I was guest-hosting KPIG’s live music show Please Stand By that week, and Hermano was one of the bands that performed. Not only did I get to ask (and tease them a little bit) about lulling their audience into a horizontal state,

LETTERS

ACT OF DESPERATION

4

A recent letter to the editor (GT, 8/29) attacked Greenway by falsely smearing those who support it. Greenway is supported by over 10,000 county residents and scores of individual donors and community volunteers, and is growing by the day because it advocates for a doable, commonsense plan with equitable and effective public transit value. This type of attack is a classic act of desperation, resorting to name-calling rather than facts. The bizarre conspiracy theory proposed by the letter writer could have been easily dismissed if she had done a simple Google search to understand who supports Greenway. The specific supporters she attempts to smear have a long track record of community service in the arts, education, the environment, public policy, increased access for the underserved, sustainable economic development, and affordable housing. Greenway encourages opponents to put validated facts forward and engage in a constructive civic discussion about what is best for our community. WILL MAYALL | BOARD MEMBER SANTA CRUZ COUNTY GREENWAY

SMALLER FOOTPRINT Good job on the library/parking structure idea in your Aug. 29 issue (GT, “Levels in the Details”). Have discussed with other

but the show’s engineer Geoff Childers actually did get down and lie on the floor during their set. I was pretty blown away by their music, and so was Carnes. Not long after, he told me that not only had one of Hermano’s members, Dillon Baiocchi, gone through the Kuumbwa Honor Band program, but that Baiocchi was also only one of several interesting musicians he’d been tracking who had been in the Honor Band. That’s when he first pitched the idea for the cover story in this issue. Since we had already run the story about Hermano, we agreed that he wouldn’t profile Baiocchi again—but as you’ll see, there turned out to be no shortage of intriguing Honor Band alumni to write about. I’m excited that we get to give this small, mostly under-the-radar program the credit it deserves for its impact on music culture, and on the lives of young local musicians.

merchants in the neighborhood, including Patrice Boyle of Soif. There are three structures now on the north end of downtown, and even though the city has allowed our prosperous new tech workers to fill them up at the ridiculously low price of $35 a month (we pay $90 per month for spaces in our lot), parking is rarely an issue mentioned by our customers. Uber and rental bikes are also reducing parking, as would an attractive electric shuttle like other coast towns have. A smaller-footprint library/community center with space left for much needed plaza-type events would be my recommendation. As noted local architect Matthew Thompson told me, it would be immoral to tear down the old library, and I am sure the city could find a good use for it. A friend teaches at Hartnell College, which is built under a parking structure and he says you can hear the cars moving through. Librarians are known to dislike noise. PAUL COCKING | GABRIELLA CAFE

Cervélo will be in good company there alongside not just Santa Cruz Bikes, but also the innovative Onewheel electric skateboard company. The Wrigley building additionally houses marketing, sales and customer service operations for bike brands in the Pon Ownership group— including Santa Cruz, Juliana and Gazelle.

The National Stewardship Action Council has awarded its 2018 Legislative Leadership Award to Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Scotts Valley) for co-authoring AB 1158, a bill that promotes carpet stewardship. The bill, signed into law last year, creates an advisory committee to make recommendations on reducing harmful waste and greenhouse gas emissions in the carpet industry. The new law requires the state to recycle a minimum of 24 percent of used carpet by 2020. Stone’s co-author Kansen Chu (D-San Jose) also received the award.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“I can not imagine my life if I didn’t have a music program in my school.” — BEYONCÉ

THE TURNOVER MYTH Re: “Trestle Mania/Rent Seeking” (GT, 8/22): Common arguments against rent control say it will lower “turnover.” Turnover is when one tenant moves out of a rental and another tenant moves in. Opponents say turnover is good because it means newcomers can find a place to live. What they don’t mention is that it is very bad for the tenants who are forced to move out! >8

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of September 5 ARIES Mar21–Apr19

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22

Now is an excellent time to feel and explore and understand and even appreciate your sadness. To get you in the mood, here’s a list of sadnesses from novelist Jonathan Safran Foer: sadness of the could-have-been; sadness of being misunderstood; sadness of having too many options; sadness of being smart; sadness of awkward conversations; sadness of feeling the need to create beautiful things; sadness of going unnoticed; sadness of domesticated birds; sadness of arousal being an unordinary physical state; sadness of wanting sadness.

When Warsan Shire was a child, she immigrated to the U.K. with her Somali parents. Now she’s a renowned poet who writes vividly about refugees, immigrants, and other marginalized people. To provide support and inspiration for the part of you that feels like an exile or fugitive or displaced person, and in accordance with current astrological omens, I offer you two quotes by Shire. 1. “I belong deeply to myself.” 2. “Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself—what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.”

TAURUS Apr20–May20

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

Do you have any feral qualities lurking deep down inside you? Have you ever felt a mad yearning to communicate using howls and yips instead of words? When you’re alone, do you sometimes dispense with your utensils and scoop the food off your plate with your fingers? Have you dreamed of running through a damp meadow under the full moon for the sheer ecstasy of it? Do you on occasion experience such strong erotic urges that you feel like you could weave your body and soul together with the color green or the sound of a rain-soaked river or the moon rising over the hills? I ask these questions, Taurus, because now is an excellent time to draw on the instinctual wisdom of your feral qualities.

“Once in a while came a moment when everything seemed to have something to say to you.” So says a character in Alice Munro’s short story “Jakarta.” Now I’m using that message as the key theme of your horoscope. Why? Because you’re at the peak of your ability to be reached, to be touched, to be communicated with. You’re willing to be keenly receptive. You’re strong enough to be deeply influenced. Is it because you’re so firmly anchored in your understanding and acceptance of who you are?

GEMINI May21–June20 “Close some doors today,” writes novelist Paulo Coelho. “Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.” I endorse his advice for your use, Gemini. In my astrological opinion, you’ll be wise to practice the rough but fine art of saying No. It’s time for you to make crisp decisions about where you belong and where you don’t; about where your future fulfillment is likely to thrive and where it won’t; about which relationships deserve your sage intimacy and which tend to push you in the direction of mediocrity.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22 To casual observers you may seem to be an amorphous hodgepodge, or a simmering mess of semi-interesting confusion, or an amiable dabbler headed in too many directions at once. But in my opinion, casual observers would be wrong in that assessment. What’s closer to the symbolic truth about you is an image described by poet Carolyn Forché: grapes that are ripening in the fog. Here’s another image that resonates with your current state: sea turtle eggs gestating beneath the sand on a misty ocean beach. One further metaphor for you: the bright yellow flowers of the evening primrose plant, which only bloom at night.

I want to make sure that the groove you’re in doesn’t devolve into a rut. So I’ll ask you unexpected questions to spur your imagination in unpredictable directions. Ready? 1. How would you describe the untapped riches in the shadowy part of your personality? 2. Is there a rare object you’d like to own because it would foster your feeling that the world has magic and miracles? 3. Imagine the perfect party you’d love to attend and how it might change your life for the better. 4. What bird most reminds you of yourself? 5. What’s your most evocative and inspiring taboo daydream? 6. In your past, were there ever experiences that made you cry for joy in ways that felt almost orgasmic? How might you attract or induce a catharsis like that sometime soon?

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 By volume, the Amazon is the largest river in the world. But where does it originate? Scientists have squabbled about that issue for over 300 years. Everyone agrees the source is in southwestern Peru. But is it the Apurímac River? The Marañón? The Mantaro? There are good arguments in favor of each. Let’s use this question as a poetic subtext as we wonder and meditate about the origin of your life force, Virgo. As is the case for the Amazon, your source has long been mysterious. But I suspect that’s going to change during the next 14 months. And the clarification process begins soon.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 In 1928, novelist Virginia Woolf wrote a letter to her friend Saxon Sydney Turner. “I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading,” she confided, “since one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs 10 others at the same time.” My usual inclination is to counsel you Sagittarians to focus on one or two important matters rather than on a multitude of semi-important matters. But in accordance with current astrological omens, I’m departing from tradition to suggest you adopt Woolf’s approach to books as your approach to everything. Your life in the coming weeks should be less like an acoustic ballad and more like a symphony for 35 instruments.

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 Not many goats can climb trees, but there are daredevils in Morocco that do. They go in quest of the delicious olive-like berries that grow on argan trees. The branches on which they perch may be 30 feet off the ground. I’m naming them as your power creature for the coming weeks. I think you’re ready to ascend higher in search of goodies. You have the soulful agility necessary to transcend your previous level of accomplishment.

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 From 49-45 BC, civil war wracked the Roman Republic. Julius Caesar led forces representing the common people against armies fighting for the aristocracy’s interests. In 45 BC, Caesar brought a contingent of soldiers to Roman territory in North Africa, intent on launching a campaign against the enemy. As the general disembarked from his ship, he accidentally slipped and fell. Thinking fast, he exclaimed, “Africa, I have tight told of you!” and clasped the ground, thus implying he had lowered himself on purpose in a ritual gesture of conquest. In this way, he converted an apparent bad omen into a positive one. And indeed, he won the ensuing battle, which was the turning point that led to ultimate victory and the war’s end. That’s good role modeling for you right now.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 Below are sweet words I’ve borrowed from poets I love. I invite you to use them to communicate with anyone who is primed to become more lyrically intimate with you. The time is right for you to reach out! 1. “You look like a sea of gems.” - Qahar Aasi. 2. “I love you with what in me is unfinished.” Robert Bly. 3. “Yours is the light by which my spirit’s born.” - E. E. Cummings. 4. “Tell me the most exquisite truths you know.” - Barry Hannah. 5. “It’s very rare to know you, very strange and wonderful.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald. 6. “When you smile like that you are as beautiful as all my secrets.” - Anne Carson. 7. Everything you say is “like a secret voice speaking straight out of my own bones.” - Sylvia Plath.

OPINION

<4

Rent control can limit turnover by preventing unjustified evictions or unpayable rent increases. That’s not a bad thing—that means tenants aren’t forced into leaving their homes.

That we should encourage turnover implies that renters should not stay put. We should not grow roots, we should not establish ourselves as long-term community members, we should not develop close relationships with our neighbors. This approach is not good for the community. It’s not good for students who should have the stability of attending the same school until they graduate. It’s not good for workers who should have the

choice of staying in jobs that are familiar to them and where they have relationships with their co-workers. It’s not good for community members who cannot get comfortable in a home, who must always prepare themselves for the next time we’ll be moved along out of our homes. Our community should be encouraging working people and families to stay in the homes they currently occupy unless they choose to leave and providing the ability to actually make that choice. The proposed rentcontrol ballot initiative can do that for us. ZAV HERSHFIELD | SANTA CRUZ

A battle brews over Measure M’s proposed rent caps and eviction limits BY LAUREN HEPLER

O

n a clear Wednesday evening in late August, around 170 landlords and homeowners—and even a few renters—gathered at the Westside tasting room of Stockwell Cellars. Set amid rustic wine barrels and industrial-chic chandeliers, the event marked the launch of a campaign against Santa Cruz rent control initiative Measure M, which will be decided by local voters this fall after a recent wave of similar efforts in other California cities. As the anti-rent-control kickoff went on inside, a small protest

just outside the winery’s outdoor patio went live on Facebook. Young speakers who had organized a “Vigil for the Displaced of Santa Cruz” passed a bullhorn a few feet away from their opposition, separated only by a thin strip of gravel lined with drought-resistant plants. “Oh, I’d love to give a story,” one rent-control opponent broke in, interrupting a protester mid-speech. “Can I give a story?” “No!” the protestors replied. As the man walked away, one protestor yelled after him: “I hope you like the fart noise I left on your voicemail!”

While campaign mudslinging is par for the course, the battle over Measure M is getting particularly intense, as record housing prices collide with sharp generational divides and anxiety about widening economic inequality. The oddest part about the rent-control controversy: almost everyone agrees that rents do need some control as they climb precariously high. “Most people don’t object to limiting rent increases,” said Lynn Renshaw, who owns multiple properties in Santa Cruz, and is a lead organizer of the anti>12

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2018

A former planning consultant has leveled a serious allegation against Santa Cruz city staff and future plans to build more downtown parking. Economist and transportation planner Patrick Siegman spent more than a year working on the Economics of Parking study at the tail end of his 15 years with Nelson\ Nygaard Consulting Associates. He claims that city staffers have predicated their plans for a 600-space mixed-use garage on faulty math. “I don’t say that lightly. I was really disturbed by it,” adds Siegman, who was laid off this past spring. Siegman, who now runs his own firm, says that years of repetitive stress slowed his work habits, and he harbored no hard feelings over the layoff. Two of his projects, including his work on the parking study, ran over budget, he says. Nelson\Nygaard officials did not return GT’s calls about Siegman’s termination. Earlier this year, Jim Burr, the city’s transportation manager, began working on the model started by Nelson\Nygaard, and Burr says that he and other staffers did so “in a professional manner.” “It’s our job to let decision makers here in the city know about our best picture of what the future’s gonna be for downtown parking, and that’s what we did,” Burr says. “That’s a very serious allegation, and I’ve been doing this for a long time. I take it very seriously, and I’m quite offended by Patrick.” Most of the spots in the garage would be replacement parking for redeveloped lots in other blocks, according to city projections. The garage would be combined with a new public library and some housing or office spaces. GT spoke with two former colleagues, who vouched for Siegman’s work but asked to remain anonymous. “He’s a very upstanding guy. I’ve never heard of him speaking out against a client or former client,” one former coworker said. “He’s certainly very passionate >14

rent-control group Santa Cruz Together. Renshaw says she would support a City Council draft ordinance that would limit rent increases to 10 percent a year, or 15 percent over two years. Measure M would limit annual rent increases to the rate of inflation of the Consumer Price Index, which rose about 2 percent each of the last two years. The rent-control supporters who authored Measure M and collected more than 5,000 signatures to get it on the ballot argue that capping big, sudden rent hikes isn’t enough. “Unless there are protections against evictions without cause, a landlord can just evict somebody and jack the rents up to whatever they want,” says Zav Hershfield, a local renter and organizer with the Santa Cruz Tenant Organizing Committee. Among the most controversial changes proposed in Measure M are new rules for “just-cause eviction,” which stipulate that a landlord can only kick tenants out for specific reasons like failure to pay rent, nuisance, or an owner move-in to the property. Though other recently approved rent control ordinances in Oakland, Mountain View and Richmond include similar rules, the Santa Cruz measure would require a larger-than-average relocation payment—the equivalent of six months of market-rate rent, well over $10,000 for larger units—from landlords who order tenants to leave for other reasons. Hershfield draws from personal experience to explain the importance of such rules. He says he was evicted from an older house he shared with several roommates earlier this year with 120 days’ notice and no reason given. “It was a scramble and a half to find something. We were looking for three months,” he says. “It’s stressful. I have to work.” Rent control opponent Peter Cook, a real estate agent and property manager who oversees rentals to some 500 UCSC students, said red tape can already make it difficult and costly to evict tenants accused of illegal or dangerous behavior. Santa

Cruz Together has seized on this idea to warn on its website that “Your neighborhood will deteriorate.” Cook also questions who will benefit from rent control. In Santa Monica, he points out, a 2016 city report estimated that just 4 percent of rent-controlled units were occupied by working-class renters. The report adds that California’s Costa-Hawkins Act—which is up for repeal in November with the statewide Proposition 10—allows landlords to reset rents each time a tenant moves out, raising the prices of rent-controlled units over time. “If I have a line of people, I’m not going to take a chance on a lowincome person,” Cook says of the many choices landlords currently have in popular areas like Santa Cruz. “There’s a few lucky ones who will be, you know, dug in an apartment until their death.”

CLASHING ACTIVISTS “I got really excited about Bernie Sanders’ campaign,” says Jeffrey Smedberg, a retired Santa Cruz County recycling coordinator and rent-control advocate, remembering what inspired him to become politically active. Answering Sanders’ call to stay involved locally after the 2016 presidential election was a driving force behind Smedberg getting involved first in a challenge to the city’s camping ban impacting homeless residents and now rent control. Though Smedberg owns a home with a group of co-owners, he supports rent control because “homeowners really have the bulk of the power” in the city. Renshaw, who works in software marketing, also cites 2016 as a turning point in her political activism. “I really got engaged as an activist after Trump’s election,” she says. “Working on local politics, you can tell you’re actually moving the needle.” For Renshaw, the brand of furtherleft politics espoused by pro-rent control campaigners at events like the winery protest come off as “weak.” Cook, a Santa Cruz Together board member, frames rent control as one front in a broader local culture war. "These folks are really trying to establish their vision of social justice on our city and California

by forcing rent control,” Cook says. He’s critical of the role statewide tenant groups like San Franciscobased Tenants Together have had in shaping Measure M. Hershfield says that while the campaign sought legal advice from Bay Area-based attorneys to craft the specifics of Measure M, it’s “hilarious” to characterize the pro-rent control campaign as a well-heeled political machine. Instead, he points to the $60,000 his opponents have raised so far, as well as to the outsized role realtor associations and the California Apartment Association have played in other rent-control races, pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into 2016 elections in Mountain View, Burlingame and elsewhere. While the campaigns for Measure M, a $140 million county affordable housing bond, and the statewide Proposition 10 play out this fall, one question is whether housing prices will increase, decrease or stay at their current level near historic highs in the meantime. Santa Cruz, like many area cities, has failed to meet its state-ordered number of new housing units for much of the last few decades, creating a scenario where demand is high and supply is low. Realtor.com lists a total of 336 properties for sale in Santa Cruz at a median $995,000 as of early September. The cheapest non-mobilehome or non-senior housing listed is a $419,500, one-bedroom condo on River Street. Those who do buy a house are purchasing them for an average 130 percent of the list price. While Cook says rent control would not “crater the housing market” due to strong demand from reliable groups like Silicon Valley retirees, he said some landlords are already considering selling off rental units. It might not make for the catchiest campaign slogan, but the San Francisco native points to his hometown—currently one of the most expensive markets in the world—to argue that rent control is a bridge too far. “My chant is like, ‘It’s better to have an expensive rental than no rental,’” he says. “That’s the unfortunate reality right now.”

about sustainable transportation, but I’ve worked closely with him on some projects, and he’s always very fact-based.” Siegman says that part of what initially perturbed him was that Burr said in a presentation to the Downtown Commission that parking demand necessitated a new garage, based on modeling from Nelson\ Nygaard. But Siegman says he did not hear any mention of city staff modifying the firm’s model. (Burr says he is certain he mentioned it in either his talk or in the staff report.) In his original version, Burr assumed that an off-street parking garage was effectively full when it reached 80 percent capacity. Siegman, however, had created his earlier model with the assumption that a parking garage is effectively full when it reaches 90 percent capacity. Burr later changed the city’s downtown parking model to have a 90 percent full rate for later meetings, and he says the parking models still penciled out, as he

had presented. He also clarified Nelson\ Nygaard’s role in the process. There is still disagreement on many of the key issues around parking demand, including the impact of raising parking rates and fees. Siegman has observed that raising parking rates—which the city of Santa Cruz plans to do in order to pay for the garage— has created a decrease in demand in other cities. Siegman’s model assumed that Santa Cruz would be no different. Siegman believes the garage may never make enough money to break even—a notion that Burr sees as ridiculous. City officials see the increased parking rates having little to no impact on demand. Economic Development Director Bonnie Lipscomb says that even though the city would more than double its hourly rates to $1.25, prices would have to go much higher before they would have any impact on demand. Burr notes that less than a decade ago many lots were free, and demand didn’t change at all when they became pay lots. Santa Cruz officials—including

Lipscomb, City Manager Martín Bernal, and Public Works Director Mark Dettle—are standing by the city’s calculations. “We’re still working with Nelson\Nygaard,” Bernal says, “and they’re completing the study, so it’s not like the project was completed, and we threw it out.”

WHEN YOU’RE DOWNTOWN Even if the proposed increased parking rates sound relatively low, it’s hard to know exactly what effect they’ll have on workers. Many downtown businesses already have a difficult time recruiting employees and holding on to them—partly because of the town’s high housing costs. It isn’t hard to imagine increased rates putting an additional squeeze on many downtown workers. Such questions aren’t new. In Santa Cruz City Council meetings over the years, Chip, the executive director of the Downtown Association, has pushed for creative solutions to parking problems and encouraged councilmembers to consider options carefully. Even the monthly parking

passes, which are more affordable than hour rates, can be steep for some workers. According to the city’s projections, parking passes would be going up also, to $75 a month. The potential impact on workers has been on Lipscomb’s mind. “It’s definitely a concern,” she says. “That’s part of the conversation that we’ve been having with some of the businesses— looking at the proposed parking rate structure and working with the businesses to come up with some programs. We’re going to be able to do some of that.” There has been a push from the Campaign for Sustainable Transportation to provide free or substantially reducedcost bus passes to workers, arguing that it would be a better way to spend revenue from increased parking rates. At a June 19 council meeting, Brett Garrett challenged notions that Santa Cruz cannot have a parking shortage, given that New York City and San Francisco both do. He noted that both cities also have great transit, which is what he would like to see >16

Santa Cruz prioritize. “And then, if we have enough money left over, we’ll think about whether or not we have enough parking,” he says. Lipscomb says the city is “totally supportive” of distributing such downtown bus passes. “We want to make sure we’re matching the bus passes to those who will use them,” she says. A city survey of downtown commuters found that 24 percent of downtown workers would use such a pass if it were available to them. Chip tells GT that increased public transit can only have so much of an impact. “A lot of the places where people live, there isn’t a bus,” he says. “We can’t just pretend that employees don’t park downtown.”

BOULDER PUSH After last week’s story (“Levels in the Details,” GT, 8/29) ran, sustainable transportation activist Rick Longinotti wrote to remind us about downtown commuter surveys. He suggested the information could be a more effective method to measure how people get around than the census data which had been used prior. Downtown commuter information isn’t readily available for as many communities for a wide-ranging side-by-side comparison. But the city of Boulder conducted one in 2014, as did the city of Santa Cruz in 2017. Unlike census data, the surveys show the workers who come downtown. It also shows a bigger gap between the two towns than indicated in the census data. Santa Cruz’s commuter results were similar to the census numbers, and still impressive: the drive-alone rate was 58 percent, less than 2 percent higher than shown in the census data. Boulder’s was far lower, coming in at 43 percent, highlighting why activists see it as a dream scenario. Even so, Downtown Commissioner Zachary Davis tells GT that when he went with the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce on a trip to Boulder in 2014, he was struck by how long community members have been working on creating multimodal transportation in and around Boulder—a history documented in two papers, one on the history of Boulder transportation from 1858-1984, and another on transportation from 1984-2017. “From my perspective, what Boulder has achieved has taken decades of far-reaching vision, consistency and political will,” Davis, who co-owns the Penny Ice Creamery, writes in an email. “Not something easily replicated.”

SANTA CRUZ COMMUNITY CREDIT UNION LOCAL SPOTLIGHT

Organization Profile:

Flynn’s Cabaret & Steakhouse Bradd Barkan is the first to admit that he’s been going through a tough time. He’s taken over a business and been busy with remodeling, promoting, and stressing about the big decisions and finances of reopening a local icon. It’s been a long year for Barkan since he bought the former Don Quixote’s International Music Hall, and now he’s at the make or break point.

Barkan originally wanted to remodel the entire building, but after gutting the kitchen and replacing everything from the ventilation hood and flooring to all of the plumbing and electrical, his finances began to run out. “There was a lot of maintenance that needed to be done and at this point I’m actually just really lucky I was able to complete it all and open the doors,” Barkan says. He firmly believes that he would not have gotten this far without financial support from the Santa Cruz Community Credit Union (SCCCU), who advised him and were willing to back him every step of the way. He’s been a member of the credit union for eight years, well before he knew his business ventures would lead him to take out the

biggest loan in SCCCU history. “I was able to go to them with my thoughts, ideas, and dreams that are normally not recognized by a big bank. Without the credit union I probably would have given up before I even started,” Barkan says. “In the end, I think that would have been a mistake for me. I know that if I get through this opening, I’ll look back on my life and be grateful for this moment.”

SCCCU that allowed him to get to where he is now. “No matter how much struggle I have been through and uncomfortable it’s been at times, without them I would have never gotten this far,” Barkan says. “I just couldn’t have done it without them, it’s that simple. There’s just no way.”

After a year of construction, Flynn’s had their grand opening just in time for Labor Day Weekend, Flynn’s Cabaret & Steakhouse and Barkan has been on 6275 Highway 9 the edge of his seat to Felton, CA make up for lost financial (831) 335-2800 ground. Coming from a background in real estate, Barkan knows a thing or two about financing and he says it’s the relatability of paid advertisment

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2018

Now known as Flynn’s Cabaret & Steakhouse, Barkan had an office in the building when the former owner put it on the market. He saw a huge amount of potential for fine dining in the place, and decided to take the leap and take it over himself. He says there aren’t many options for great farm to table, organic food around town, and his vision for Flynn’s was to fill a niche for a quality dining and international perfor-

mance venue.

THE KUUMBWA JAZZ HONOR BAND HAS QUIETLY BECOME A TRAINING GROUND FOR SOME OF THE MOST EXCITING NEW MUSICIANS IN THE COUNTRY BY AARON CARNES

M

them, as opposed to ‘I’m the star.’” The Honor Band was started in the early ’90s when retired North Monterey district band teacher and Kuumbwa board member Phil Snyder noticed that the jazz organization’s board was putting a lot of emphasis on educational programs. He saw it as a chance to use his many decades of experience leading school bands, and give Santa Cruz County kids who were truly interested in jazz a place to learn at a higher level than they could in their schools. “I knew they were always claiming that they were pushing jazz education, but they didn’t really have much going,” Snyder says. “I’m glad to see that it’s grown. It’s doing what they said they wanted it to do in the first place. It’s gotten bigger and better.” The results are remarkable. The Honor Band has become a true talent factory, and many of its alumni have gone on to successful, innovative and downright fascinating careers in the music world—and beyond. Over the last couple years of writing music features and Love Your Local Band columns for GT, I began to notice that some of the musicians I was most intrigued by had been involved with Kuumbwa’s program at some point. One in particular that jumped out at me was Dillon Baiocchi, whose experimental project Hermano blew my mind. So I tracked a few of them down to ask them about what they’re doing now, and how they feel their experience in the Honor Band contributed to it. 22>

ost kids who want to play an instrument will probably cut their teeth on their local school band. But where do they go later if they have ambitions beyond their high school jazz band? In Santa Cruz County, the answer is the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band. The Honor Band program is in some ways an extension of Kuumbwa’s Summer Jazz Camp, which takes place over the course of two weeks in June. It’s a crash course in all things jazz, and open to a range of experience levels. Then in September comes the Jazz Honor Band, which requires an audition. For the kids that make it, there’s a weekly rehearsal, as well as several performances that happen over the course of the school year. The Honor Band bucks music-education conventions— in most school jazz bands, kids learn how to play in an ensemble setting, but here the emphasis is on improvised soloing. Young musicians need to have the basics down when they start, and chances are that by the end of the school year, they’ll have a much stronger grasp on how to create spontaneous melodies. “Jazz is a lot of things, but ultimately the essence of it is improvised soloing. It’s an enormous skill,” says Terrel Eaton, who led the Honor Band from 2002 to 2007, and again from 2016 until this year. “These are kind of the stars from the individual high school bands getting to play with other kids that are just as good as

ight now, Ben Flocks is between tour dates with the group Sammy Miller and the Congregation, a wide-ranging revue production in which he plays tenor sax. He’s been in the band for a couple years, and has toured nationally and internationally with them. In this band, jazz is only one piece of the musical puzzle. “It’s a broad range. We play a lot of old American songs. There’s a lot of old folk songs and old jazz songs: Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington. A lot of new music, too, that we arrange and compose ourselves,” Flocks says. “We have a lot of theatrical elements to our performances. There’s acting, there’s costumes, dancing, and we

interact with the audience. That’s been a really fun project to be involved with.” This gig came well over a decade after his experience with the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band in high school. First, he attended the Brubeck Institute in Stockton for two years, then moved to New York, where he finished his education at the New School. While there, and for several years after, he gigged as much as he could. In 2014, he released his first official album as bandleader, Battle Mountain. It’s steeped in jazz, with also some subtle, breezy Americana influences in the mix. The record got great reviews including 4.5 stars from All About Jazz and a positive

<22 HONOR BAND write-up in the Los Angeles Times. Even though he was living in New York by the time he made the album, he wanted to access his Santa Cruz roots for the record. So, he did the recording in California, and used musicians almost primarily from the area that he grew up with. “It was inspired by Santa Cruz, and my experiences growing up in Bonny Doon up on a mountain,” Flocks says. “A lot of the songs are very open and introspective. They don’t necessarily reflect my experiences in New York, with the fast-paced lifestyle of living in the city. I’m more inspired by my time growing up in the country and by the beach. We play some folk songs, we play a bolero by the Buena Vista Social Club, all songs that you might hear in Santa Cruz when you’re walking on the beach or hanging at the Boardwalk.”

He considers his time with the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band a big inspiration. He says it was critical for him to have an opportunity to challenge himself, learn how to improvise better, and play with higher-caliber players. But just as important, says Flocks, was the opportunity he had to see unlimited shows at Kuumbwa for free, something you get to do when you make it into the Honor Band. “I got to see the greatest musicians on the planet coming through Santa Cruz every week on Monday night and Thursday nights, and having the opportunity to learn from them by going to these shows, it was very cool,” Flocks says. “I feel really lucky to be able to play music and teach music, and do what I do for a living. It’s a blast. I get to travel and see the world and inspire young musicians to play music.”

NAME: NICK BIANCHINI INSTRUMENT: TRUMPET YEARS IN HONOR BAND: 2005-2008

N

ick Bianchini is one of the youngest high school band teachers in the county. Since 2015, he’s been teaching at Harbor High and Branciforte Middle School, and he couldn’t be more excited

AGE: 28

about the opportunity. “Growing up, most people talk about teaching as being a back-up plan for their music careers if they fail,” Bianchini says. “It was a choice for me to go into this direction.”


HONOR BAND It hasn’t always been easy. The program—through no fault of the previous band director, Bianchini says—wasn’t doing too great when he got there. But in a few short years, he’s already grown the band in numbers, and made an impression in competition—including the Anaheim Heritage Festival last year at the Rose Center Theater, where they got a silver rating, meaning they were in the top 20 percent of high school bands in the country. “I’ve been working hard at building the program up. It’s been a difficult process,” Bianchini says. “I think most of the kids that do jazz band at Harbor have never really experienced jazz.”

Before jumping into the world of teaching, Bianchini lived in L.A. for a while, where he played the trumpet for bands in a number of different genres, including jazz, funk and reggae. One band, Tribal Seeds, had some breakout success, and he gigged up and down California several times with them. “Things were going really well in Los Angeles. I had a lot of connections. I would say it was pretty successful,” Bianchini says. “I felt a need to come back to Santa Cruz and to change my direction as far as playing music goes. I fell in love with being able to teach and pass on all the knowledge that I learned in college, high school

and the Kuumbwa Band, and give those opportunities to the kids now coming up. That gave me the same satisfaction and feelings that the performing did.” When he first decided to move back to Santa Cruz, he didn’t have a teaching job lined up. Initially, he got a gig teaching “Hot Cross Buns” to second-graders—and loved it. Then the job at Harbor High opened up. He applied and got it. Being has been trying to put some contemporary songs into the repertoire that the kids can relate to, including genres like Latin, salsa, funk and hip-hop. For instance, they play the popular electronic song “Say U Won’t” by Brasstracks.

“I’m trying to bridge the gap from what I grew up with in music and what I love about music, so that we’re not just playing classical music in band anymore,” Bianchini says. “We’re trying to move with the times and change with what’s really going on in music right now. That’s what’s made Harbor special, and made the program grow so much.” By engaging the students with popular music, he’s been able to teach them more classical and jazz numbers. “Now that they’re at a level where they can play it successfully, they’re finding that playing classical music is fun, too,” Bianchini says. “We’ve done great things with that.”

NAME: REMY & PASCAL LE BOEUF

ust recently, Pascal Le Boeuf was nominated for a Grammy for best instrumental composition for the song “Alkaline” from the record Imaginist, a collaboration between his jazz group the Le Boeuf Brothers and contemporary classical ensemble the JACK Quartet. “It felt wonderful to be recognized by the jazz community for a project I felt proud of. It brought together musicians from jazz and classical communities in a way that allowed them to speak their native languages and still have a conversation,” Pascal says. The Le Boeuf Brothers now have four albums. The group is comprised of Pascal and his identical twin Remy Le Boeuf, who have been playing music together since they were kids, and who both went through the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band program. Remy and Pascal have long been recognized as extraordinary talents in Santa Cruz, and since moving to New York they’ve been hailed as brilliant musicians by a number of publications, including the New York Times. And they give a lot of credit to their musical upbringing, which started with jamming together at an early age. “I played a lot with Pascal on a regular basis.

good educational programs like the Kuumbwa Jazz Camp and the Kuumbwa Honor Band,” Remy says. “We were just in the right place to take advantage of all these excellent educational opportunities for young people in Santa Cruz.” The brothers play jazz mixed with a number of other genres, including electronic, hip-hop, pop, and in the case of their last album, classical. “Jazz is certainly our native musical language. It’s how we became fluent in music,” Pascal says. “Anyone in the jazz community will be able to understand how to converse in that language. Even now when I write for classical musicians, I still think primarily in the language of jazz—

although it gets pretty blurry.” They recall playing at Santa Cruz farmers markets as kids, where they’d give out their business card for prospective gigs—which they got. They even score free food at the markets by arranging deals with specific vendors to set up near them to increase foot traffic, and thus sales. “I think by the time I graduated high school, so much of my identity was wrapped up in music,” says Remy. “It’s so much a part of who I was. I was and still am interested in a lot of non-musical things, but at that time in my life, music was what I was going to do.” “We were born musicians,” says Pascal, “just following the free food.”

ucas Hahn currently attends Columbia University in New York. He hasn’t declared a major yet, but he’s considering pre-med. He’s been back home this summer, and found a gig combining his two major passions: science and jazz. He’s working with

neuroscientist and otolaryngology surgeon Dr. Charles Limb at UCSF, where they are analyzing the effects of improvisation on the brain of jazz musicians. “Since we’re in the business of trying to assign more objective scientific reasoning and logic to


HONOR BAND jazz—which is pretty famously not logical or scientific—I’m trying to use my experience in both fields to think of new solutions,” Hahn says. “I definitely have an edge in that aspect. It’s been really valuable in the lab.” It was in another program Hahn did after Kuumbwa, the SFJAZZ High School All Stars, that he met Limb. “He was doing research on creativity, and used our band as a model,” Hahn says. “He would talk about creative jazz musicians, and we might play a piece to illustrate that.” In March, Hahn looked up Limb and asked him if there were any projects he could participate in while he was home this summer. Limb offered him a spot as a summer intern for his study of improvisation called the UCSF Sound and Music Perception Lab. It was a perfect fit for what Hahn wanted to study. “If you ask jazz musicians—or really any performer—what makes them creative, nobody can really give a scientific answer to that,” Hahn says. “It’s so very hard to quantify it in objective terms. Our goal is to kind of decode what exactly is happening to somebody like Keith Jarrett or Herbie Hancock.

We want to know what allows them to be so creative [in a way] that most of the population cannot replicate.” A simple explanation of the methodology involves studying the brain activity of a jazz musician as they are improvising, and then comparing it to control data, where the same musician is playing a piece that they’ve already memorized. “Areas associated with language are more active during improvisation,” Hahn says. “The part of our brain that is associated with self-inhibition is kind of less active during improvisation. I think there’s a lot of interesting insight we can glean from not only a musical sense, but also broader-reaching implications. It also has to do with the feeling of ‘being in the zone’ that musicians and athletes or any other people that perform under pressure talk about.” Hahn will continue his education after he’s finished working with Limb, but right now, he’s all in on his work with the study. “Maybe there’s a way to harness that for other people besides the Chick Coreas of the world,” Hahn says. “There’s a lot that can be done with that information. Right now, we’re just trying to figure out exactly what’s going on in their heads.”

“I found composition really absorbing. I like to try to write music that I would like to listen to. I don’t think I would have had the facility if I hadn’t learned improvisation theory.” — EMILY INTERSIMONE mily Intersimone is using the skills she gained from jazz improvisation and the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band for a completely different kind of job: software engineer. “For me there’s a link,” she says. “Both things involve having a certain amount of creativity, but within a set of rules. Let’s say you’re writing an arrangement and you know you want to land on a certain chord in a section, and you have this melody that you have to harmonize for four bars before that. So, there’s a number of choices that you have to make, but you have this ultimate destination. I see the same thing in programming.” She has been living in New York City with this job for about a half a year. After graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles to study jazz at UCLA, and then to New York to study jazz composition at New York University. There she recorded an album of her original pieces of songwriting as a class assignment. She was fortunate to get started with songwriting while still at the Honor Band. She even wrote some of the music that the band would play at its shows. “I found composition really absorbing,” Intersimone says. “I like to try to write music that I would like to listen to. I don’t think I would have had the facility if I hadn’t learned improvisation theory. When you play the standards, learn about setting up solos, all of that, it includes some form of improvisation. That’s always been in everything that I’ve ever written.” Shortly after graduating college, she moved back to California, where

she played jazz gigs, taught private piano lessons at her home, and eventually landed a gig as assistant musical director at the San Jose Repertory Theatre for a production of The Snow Queen. Her compositional skills came in handy as she helped with arranging music and sometimes writing parts for individual musicians. “I love that. I love being with talented performers. Some of them were truly exceptional,” Intersimone says. Teaching was particularly special to her. Even now, with her full time coding job in New York, she still has one piano student that she teaches. Music has been a very important part of her life, and though it’s taken a backseat for now, she doesn’t think it will stay that way forever. “I’d like to play with other people more, because that’s something I really miss,” Intersimone says. “I think I did it so much starting in high school, all the way up to a few years ago, that I didn’t really realize what I was missing until it had been gone for a little bit. I’ve just got to get out there and go to some jam sessions and re-insert myself into the scene.”

“To tie the films together, you’d have to have quite a long cord. The thing that holds this whole program together is that we really feel that these are the seven best ocean films of the year.” -HENRY LYSTAD <30

says Lystad. “The thing that holds this whole program together is that we really feel that these are the seven best ocean films of the year. The key to this being a successful annual program is the fact that we go out and source films regardless of whether they are shorts or featurelength films.” Putting together a single program of the best films on any given subject, regardless of length, means that you can end up with a program nine hours long—which is not all that practical. “We create edits of lengthy films that otherwise wouldn’t fit into a program,” says Lystad. “We create edits that keep audiences on the edge of their seats and really cut through the fog of things that sometimes make feature films untenable.” Of the seven films to be presented Sept. 8 at the Rio Theatre, four are edited-down versions of films that were originally 60 minutes or longer. Individually, the films range from five minutes to 35 minutes. To take one example, Paradigm Lost is a portrait of waterman Kai Lenny and his talent at riding waves on just about every board imaginable (kiteboarding, windsurfing, paddleboards, big-wave surfing). As a stand-alone, Paradigm weighs in at just over an hour. As part of this program, it’s a 14-minute distillation. “It’s a totally different experience,” said Lystad of the new edit. “You never change the story in documentary film, but you can change the flow—as long as you’re not changing the original intent of the filmmaker.”

One man’s relationship with the ocean is also the theme of The Ocean Rider, a Swiss film about a sailor named Yvan Bourgnon and his insane effort to sail around the world alone on a catamaran with no cockpit—“not an ocean-going vessel in any way, shape or form,” says Lystad—facing storms, pirates and other horrors along the way. The magnificence of coral reefs is the subject of Vamizi, a Swedish doc that explores one of the world’s oldest coral reefs (a “mother reef” as it’s called) off the coast of Mozambique in southeastern Africa. Another short film, Water II, is a lush, visually rich look at waves from under the surface using a highcontrast, slow-motion camera. Of course, it’s extremely unwise— maybe even illegal—to screen a seafaring film festival without some surfing. The Ocean Film Tour doesn’t disappoint, with an edited-down distillation of The Big Wave Project— Band of Brothers, a documentary which follows three surfers as they attempt to navigate the waves at Nazaré, off the coast of Portugal. It’s a place, says Lystad, where “the world’s largest surfable—or maybe not surfable—waves are found.” The festival will also include a surprise film or two. “What you’re getting,” said Lystad, “is this chance to buckle in, and we’re going to take you around the world several times as we criss cross the oceans.” The International Ocean Film Tour will be presented at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $16. riotheatre.com.

Carol J. Colin started painting with Cheryl Ruby, an art therapist, whom was working at River Street Shelter. I have always drawn with colored pencils mostly for science classes. Since I fell and broke my arm in two places and crushed my elbow, I have painted as therapy propping up my arm and gradually from you-tube videos and various artists coaching me have gotten better over the last 7 years. I started with watercolor but have been painting for the last 5 years with acrylics and found objects which I find when walking my dog, Photon. I love to paint with bright colors and remember snorkeling in Belize which is a big part of my inspiration, as well as the beauty and nature of Santa Cruz. Her works are often about contact with marginalized people and of basic living elements. She desires a response from her viewers…a knowing that ‘this is me, too’, whether the work represents a hummingbird suspended in flight or a child waving a flag at Pride, the viewer understands that there is an unalterable and irrepressible joy in connection.

MUSIC

AKI AQUI Aki Goes to Bollywood performs Friday, Sept. 7 at Michael’s on Main.

Mumbai Mash-Up

A

ki Kumar has been a regular presence on the Santa Cruz blues scene in recent years, but you’ve never seen him quite like this. The San Jose vocalist and harmonica ace can often be found playing in an acoustic duo with guitarist Jon Lawton at Aptos St. BBQ, a stripped-down setting for his disparate repertoire of folky country blues, sinewy Delta boogies, and searing Chicago anthems. But when Kumar takes the stage Friday at Michael’s on Main, he’s stepping into a role for which he was born. Literally. In an inspired cultural mashup,

Kumar blends the blues he came to love after moving to the South Bay with the Bollywood themes that filled his home growing up in Mumbai. The result is Aki Goes to Bollywood, a deliriously inspired act that marries propulsive blues and R&B grooves to soaring melodies from some of Indian cinema’s best-loved scenes. “All the songs I cover are songs I grew up with, part of my musical upbringing,” says Kumar. “And while it might seem like these are totally different styles, there are a lot of parallels. There’s one Hindi song I do, ‘Sajan Re Jhoot Mat Bolo,’ about how we’re all going back to Mother Earth. What could be more blues than that?

I had to include it, but it had to have a very big blues signature, so I set it to this Bo Diddley groove. The whole concept is progressing more and more, representing what’s in my head.” Kumar introduced the project on 2016’s Aki Goes to Bollywood, one of the first albums released by the Little Village Foundation, a nonprofit label created by veteran blues keyboardist Jim Pugh— who spent three decades on the road with Etta James and Robert Cray—that has already become an invaluable outlet for roots music, with 22 releases by overlooked artists in gospel, blues, mariachi, country music, and beyond.

Aki Kumar brings Bollywood blues to Soquel BY ANDREW GILBERT

Kumar recently released his second album for the label, Hindi Man Blues, and he’s been delighted with the response from audiences. While the blues scene can be a provincial realm where people expend a lot of energy policing the borders, he’s found freedom in forging a sound that reflects his reality, rather than pursuing someone else’s notion of authenticity. “I’m a guy from India who really loves the blues,” Kumar says. “I listen to the music all the time, and love learning new songs. But at the end of the day I’m not from Mississippi Delta. My formative experiences are from India, and I’m never going to be African-American. Sometimes we put this shell around ourselves trying to force-feed the tradition. There needs to be an acknowledgement that while we love blues, we need to infuse our own identity into our music.” While Aki Goes to Bollywood is Kumar’s most vivid and visible project—he’s performing with the band at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass on Oct. 7—many of his gigs are straightahead blues. Dedicated to building the Bay Area scene, he runs a Tuesday night jam session at San Jose’s Poor House Bistro and a Thursday night session at Little Lou’s BBQ in Fremont. For Friday’s show, he’s joined by a killer band that reflects the far-flung reach of the blues. Drummer June Core is a well-traveled veteran who was hired by heavyweights such as Robert Lockwood Jr., Johnny Shines, James Cotton, and LaVern Baker before putting in a 14-year stint with Charlie Musselwhite. Bassist Vance Ellers has toured with blues harp greats Mark Hummel and Rick Estrin. The wild card is 23-year-old Mountain View guitarist Rome Yamilov. “He’s one of the newest voices on the Bay Area scene, and he hasn’t been playing blues that long compared to some, but the kid has more talent than just about anybody I’ve met,” Kumar says. “He’s not only taken to straight traditional blues, he picked up my Bollywood material really quickly. He went from helping me set up gear a year ago to being my second guitar player to being the only guitar player, playing lead and rhythm.”

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND

STAR LA’MOAN Star La’Moan, frontwoman for the local eclectic band Star La’Moan and the Kitchenettes (jazz, blues, all things New Orleans), likes to bring a box of wooden spoons, pots, pans and other kitchen implements to shows. She’ll hand them out to members of the audience and encourage them to use them as percussion. At a recent show, she handed some spoons to two young boys. One was 8, the other was 11.

SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“Once I handed them the spoons, they went berserk—and they were great percussionists. They played all night long with us,” La’Moan says. “I think it’s really important to engage the audience. That’s the gift I think we give as performers.”

48

The band came together four years ago, while its members were working together in the kitchen at Kuumbwa Jazz Center. La’Moan had previously fronted Star La’Moan and the Deltoids, which started back in the early ’90s. She released one CD, Livin’ on the Edge, a little over a decade ago, and is hoping to have her first Kitchenettes CD out early next year. It’s tentatively titled Outta The Kitchen, Into the Streets. “We march in. We go up and down the aisles. If we’re allowed to go outside, we do,” La’Moan says of the band’s shows. “We do everything from old timey standards to jazz, some R&B, some of my originals. They all fit with what I feel is the heart of New Orleans music. It’s everything and the kitchen sink, because that’s what our musical cuisine is.” AARON CARNES

INFO: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12. Michael’s on Main, 2591 S Main St., Soquel. $10. 479-9777.

UNWED SAILOR

WEDNESDAY 9/5 REGGAE

MISAEL Relief efforts continue in Puerto Rico, and its citizens are still struggling. That’s why it’s important to keep listening to what the people that call it home have to say, which is one of many reasons you might want to check out Misael at Moe’s Alley on Wednesday. He is famous as the lead singer of one of the island’s biggest reggae bands, Yerba Bruja. In addition to the handful of LPs his band has released, he’s also put out some solo material, and done some collaborations, all still in the vein of bilingual roots reggae. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $8/adv, $12/door. 479-1854.

COUNTRY

WESTERN CENTURIES With a collective resume that includes work with Zoe Muth, Eli West and Donna the Buffalo, Western Centuries garners comparisons to legendary groups like the Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers.

Purveyors of country music with heart, well-crafted lyrics, top-notch instrumentation and enough edge to appeal to hardcore roots enthusiasts, the band breathes fresh life into classic country and Western music, without losing what it is that attracts people to the music in the first place. As singer-songwriter and founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show Willie Watson put it, “What a relief! Country music is alive and well.” CJ INFO: 7:30 p.m. Michael’s on Main, 2591 Main St., Soquel. $10. 479-9777.

FRIDAY 9/7 HIP HOP

SHORELINE MAFIA Shoreline Mafia are no strangers to Santa Cruz although these days when they play town they are selling out the main room in the Catalyst—a long way from their fledgling days only two years ago. Now the fearsome foursome recently signed to Atlantic Records and are ready to take their L.A. sound to the world. Because they’ve blown up so big, this Friday’s show will be a double feature. MAT WEIR INFO: 6:30 & 9:30 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $25-$60. 429-4135.

SATURDAY 9/8 PSYCHEDELIC ROCK

HOUSE OF FLOYD Pink Floyd is often remembered as one of the quintessential “album rock” bands. But let’s not forget that they were also a mind-blowing live band. They incorporated theatrics and lights, and created stunning sonic soundscapes that even their near-flawless records couldn’t capture. That’s why the goal of the San Francisco Pink Floyd tribute band House Of Floyd is to create not so much a “tribute” to the band as a fully immersive live Pink Floyd experience. They even create some of their own arrangements for these classic songs. AC INFO: 8:30 p.m. Flynn’s Cabaret & Steakhouse, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. $20/adv, $25/door. 335-2800.

GEORGE KAHUMOKU JR. With a stage show that’s been described as the “essence of aloha,” singer-songwriter and 12-string slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr. is one of the most recognized and beloved ambassadors of Hawaiian music. Born in Kona on the Big Island, Kahumoku’s understanding of traditions—musical and otherwise— runs deep. A farmer, teacher and storyteller, Kahumoku shares his love of island life, humanity, music and the land in his music and on-stage. CJ INFO: 7 p.m. Flynn’s Cabaret, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. $17/adv, $20/door. 335-2800.

MONDAY 9/10 JAZZ

TAYLOR MCFERRIN In the McFerrin family, uncategorizable brilliance doesn’t fall far from the tree. The son of vocal wizard Bobby McFerrin, Taylor McFerrin is a polymathic multi-instrumentalist, beatboxer, vocalist, composer and producer who engineers slyly grooving tracks blending hip-hop and electronica, jazz, soul, and R&B. He’s been keeping company with a groove-centric jazz supergroup

in recent months, but this show is a solo date featuring McFerrin building tunes on his phalanx of keyboards. ANDREW GILBERT

POST-ROCK

UNWED SAILOR Back in the adventurous late ’90s indie rock era, Jonathan Ford was kicking around in bands Pedro the Lion and Roadside Monument, not feeling completely artistically satisfied. It was from this dissonance that he created Unwed Sailor, which is mostly instrumental, post-rock and highly emotive—not totally new territory among ’90s indie experimenters. But a few things stuck out about his project. One was its slippery diversity from album to album. It could be graceful and gorgeous, or lighthearted and cute; even grating and scary. Another more subtle element is Ford’s relentless pursuit to keep the music swirling around the bass. He continues to write and record experimental, ambient music that doesn’t quite jive with the standard post-rock stereotypes. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $10. 429-6994.

HEADS UP DISPLAY John Chu looks for clues to his daughter’s whereabouts in ‘Searching.’

SEPTEMBER -5-11, 2018 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Digitally Erased

54

Beneath the missing-person plot of ‘Searching’ is a subtext about humanity lost in a wash of tech BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

I

t’s neither the first nor the best movie about living (and dying) online, but San Jose-raised filmmaker Aneesh Chaganty’s thriller Searching is an absorbing picture constructed of Windows and iPhone shots, of Google searches and live-streaming of TV news websites. We see the Santa Clara Valley girl Margot grow up via home movie footage—she’s played by several actresses, finally in adolescence by Michelle La. When she’s 15 going on 16, she vanishes one weekend, even as her clueless dad is hounding her with snapshots of the trash she forgot to take out before she left. Her widowed

Korean-American father David Kim (a harsh, dogged John Cho) is a hightech executive who may have been too distracted to notice her pain. Now he has to hunt for leads on the laptop she left behind. It’s more than just the dropped references to the tech companies that make this seem based in the Bay Area; perhaps it was all inspired by the Sierra LaMar murder case. Chaganty scans “San Jose Fins” hockey jerseys and the “Silicon Valley Police Department” while hunting for Margot, and the finale is set at fictional Barbosa Lake up in the mountains west of Gilroy. An

unscrubbed reference to Evergreen hides in the margins, but the gone girl is a student at “Evercreek High School,” home of the Evercreek Catfish football team. Catfish, a clue! True, most of the fish here are red herrings. Chaganty masters the technical challenge of making every shot an electronic transmission without making what we see visually boring. When we think we’ve gone live, as when a news bulletin comes in, we pull back to reveal yet another computer screen. Searching’s not a cheat, either; among these glanced-at suspects, the person responsible for Margot’s disappearance is there for us to see.

Searching’s view of the internet includes the swine who come out when they smell disaster. Social media posters weigh in on the idea that David was responsible: hashtags #parentfail and #daddidit. While it’s mostly humorless, there are a few bleak laughs, Heathers-style. An Evercreek student who first claimed not to know Margot is later seen sobbing on Skype, wailing “She was my best friend,” and accepting all the condolences from people touched for a nanosecond or two on Facebook. Beyond the thoughts-and-prayers emotional bilge is the viciousness of kids hiding behind pseudonyms. Since actress La excels at emoting loneliness, the cutting remarks do sting—as when some anonymous person Margot is pouring her heart to online responds “BOOBIES PLZ.” Chaganty won the NEXT award at Sundance; he’d previously directed Seeds on Google Glass, which went viral on YouTube; thus he was invited to become one of the “Google Five” making commercials in New York. Searching may be the next step beyond Google-goggles POV, perhaps indicating what post-cinema will look like, a hypertextual storm of popups and open windows. But Searching’s unrealistically positive ending matches some unfortunate acting choices by Debra Messing as Rosemary Vick, the detective on the case. While we later learn a reason for her emotions, the throbbing broken-hearted approach to playing a cop at a press conference sticks out like a sore thumb. Worse, Searching’s beginning and end reflect Chaganty’s experience as a maker of commercials. It’s a genuine skill to conjure up instant emotions, as a commercial must, in the service of getting clients sniffling in 60 seconds flat. This rabbit punch straight in the feels contradicts the critical side of Searching. It touches on the sinister side of the internet and then retreats into warmth. You leave a little bewildered, marvelling at how we entered this electronic panopticon of our own free will, and how it’s easier to get in than to get out. SEARCHING Directed by Aneesh Chaganty. Starring John Cho, Michelle La and Debra Messing. PG-13. 102 mins.


FILM NEW RELEASES THE BOOKSHOP Emily Mortimer plays a widow who opens a bookstore in a coastal town in Suffolk in the 1950s. Bill Nighy plays Mr. Brundish, a mysterious man who is her number one customer, and Patricia Clarkson is Mrs. Gamart, an influential town figure who could destroy her business. Directed by Isabel Coixet. (PG) 113 minutes. (SP) THE NUN It’s time to play everybody’s favorite horror-movie game show, Prequel or Sequel? This week’s question: If Annabelle was a prequel to The Conjuring, and Annabelle: Creation was a prequel to Annabelle, is The Nun—which is set after Annabelle: Creation but before Annabelle—a prequel or a sequel to The Conjuring? Oh, I’m sorry, it was a trick question. The Nun is actually a prequel to The Conjuring 2! Even more hilariously, you don’t even really need to have seen any of the previous four films going into this stand-alone spin-off that has a priest and a nun investigating the mysterious suicide in a 1950s Romanian monastery. Directed by Corin Hardy. Starring Demian Birchir, Taissa Farmiga and Ingrid Bisu. (R) 96 minutes. (SP)

THE WIFE Glenn Close gives what some are calling the performance of her career as a woman who accompanies her writer husband to Stockholm when he is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature. However, things are revealed to be much different than they appear on the surface as the truth about “the wife” comes out. Directed by Bjorn Runge. Co-starring Jonathan Pryce and Christian Slater. (R) 100 minutes. (SP) CONTINUING EVENT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES Film buffs are invited Wednesdaynights at 7

played the Chinese character Mulan in the TV series Once Upon a Time. Directed by Jon M. Chu. Starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Ken Jeong and Michelle Yeoh. (PG-13) 104 minutes. (SP)

THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS A lot of people seem up in arms about the idea behind this movie: putting Muppets in kid-unfriendly settings. Sesame Street even sued the producers! So, uh, they never heard of Avenue Q? Or Peter Jackson’s truly disturbed Meet the Feebles? C’mon, people, Muppets doing inappropriate things is a creepy but hilarious thing to see! Anyway, for the most part this black comedy/crime thriller about a murder in a world where puppets co-exist with people (but are treated like second-class citizens) is really more of a dirtier riff on Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Directed by Brian Henson. Starring Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph and Joel McHale. (R) 91 minutes. (SP)

BLACKKKLANSMAN BlacKkKlansman, based on the story of a real-life African-American police detective who infiltrated David Duke’s Ku Klux Klan in 1979, screams Spike Lee comeback film in every way. From its cultural relevance in the age of government-supported white supremacists to the way it plays with questions of racial identity (as in Sorry to Bother You, an AfricanAmerican protagonist has to find his “white voice”) to its showcase for his trademark mix of brutal truth and humor, this is the kind of joint Lee was born to make. Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace. (R) 135 minutes. (SP) BLINDSPOTTING Writers and co-stars Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs (of Hamilton fame) deliver their “love letter to Oakland” after 10 years of development. They play two former childhood friends (not a stretch, since they actually were) trying to get through the last three days of a year-long probation being served by Collin (Diggs). But his reckless friend Miles (Casal) may be the biggest threat to his freedom. Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada. Co-starring Janina Gavankar and Wayne Knight. (R) 95 minutes. (SP) CRAZY RICH ASIANS Ugh, you gotta feel for the multiracial actors cast in this rom-com based on the book by Kevin Kwan. This is the first big-budget Hollywood film to feature a predominantly Asian cast in 25 years, but for some people, they’re just not Asian enough. The criticism over the casting for this movie—about a Chinese-American professor who accompanies her boyfriend to Singapore and discovers that his family is not only crazy rich, but just plain crazy—got so ridiculous that at one point a Korean American actress who had been turned down for a role complained in an interviews about the “loopholes” in ethnically conscious casting. The problem: she herself had

JULIET, NAKED If you’re familiar with Nick Hornsby tales like High Fidelity and About a Boy, you know the female lead is usually stuck with some narcissistic jackass man-boy. But not in Juliet, Naked. This time, female lead Rose Byrne has two narcissistic jackass man-boys to choose from! One is her music nerd boyfriend (played by Chris O’Dowd) and the other is the culty singersongwriter (played by Ethan Hawke) that her boyfriend is obsessed with. What’s that you say—this bizarre love triangle is sure to lead to whimsical romantic comedy? Ah, you have seen a Nick Hornsby adaptation before! Directed by Jesse Peretz. (R) 105 minutes. (SP) KIN Who’s ready for this new wave of science fiction films that use their fantastical elements as a hook to draw you deeper into complex stories about real-world drama? This is actually one of the oldest tricks in the sci-fi playbook, but it’s experiencing a Renaissance right now. These are the kinds of stories that make you go, “Wait, is this really science fiction? It seems more like (fill in appropriate other genre here”—and then go on to prove that they’re both. Sorry to Bother You

was this year’s best example, but Kin may be an interesting one, too. It’s based on the well-made short film Bag Man, in which a troubled black kid takes a mysterious trip out of the city. When he gets there, we learn he’s come to test out a weapon of obviously alien origin that he’s somehow found. He gets a chance to do so in an unexpected way when he comes across a mob hit in progress. Kin attempts to answer the questions raised by the short film—how did he find that thing, anyway, and who did it belong to, and do they want it back?—while fleshing out the crime and family drama that surrounds the main character. Directed by Jonathan Baker and Josh Baker. Starring Jack Reynor, Zoe Kravitz, Dennis Quaid and James Franco. (PG-13) 102 minutes. (SP) THE MEG Yes, we all wish this horror movie was about a giant Meg Ryan chasing people around, but you’ll have to settle for a 70foot prehistoric shark stalking Jason Statham. Directed by Jon Turteltaub. Co-starring Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson and Bingbing Li. (PG-13) 113 minutes. (SP) MILE 22 “You gonna keep coming at me until you kill us all? Is that the game today? That’s a weird game, but OK, I’ll play.” I can tell that’s what Mark Wahlberg, as the leader of some super-secret CIA unit, is actually saying to a terrorist in the trailer for Mile 22 . But thanks to SNL , the only thing I hear whenever that ridiculous voice comes out of his face on screen is “Hey goat! I like your beard! I had a beard like that in The Perfect Storm ! Did you see that movie? Say hi to your mother for me!” Then again, I would rather watch 95 minutes of Mark Wahlberg Talks to the Animals than this 10th-generation ripoff of better action movies about crack military teams getting “the asset” from Point A to Point B. Directed by Peter Berg. Starring Wahlberg, Ronda Rousey and John Malkovich. (R) 95 minutes. (SP)

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT I thought I was crazy when I first noticed that the popularity of Mission: Impossible movies seem to grow the more Tom Cruise gets hurt. To put it a little more accurately, the more the movies undercut Cruise’s veneer of action-hero flawlessness, the more people flock to them. But I’m not the only person who thinks this, because the trailer for the latest one features a scene where Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt is scared to jump out a window. And it’s really funny! For some reason, Tom Cruise getting owned just never gets tired. Hell, isn’t that why we all watched Edge of Tomorrow, to see him get killed over and over again? Directed by Christopher McQuarrie. Co-starring Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg. 147 minutes. (SP) OPERATION FINALE It’s been almost 15 years since Ben Kingsley really got to chew his way through a bad-guy role as only he can. He was an absolutely terrifying gangster in Sexy Beast, but this time he goes straight to the heart of evil playing Adolf Eichmann in this Nazi-hunting drama based on the true story of the Israeli spies who tracked the notorious SS officer down in Argentina. Directed by Chris Weitz. Co-starring Oscar Isaac, Melanie Laurent and Nick Kroll. (PG-13) (SP) PAPILLON No prison can hold Jax from Sons of Anarchy! At least that’s the idea behind casting Charlie Hunnam in the title role of this remake of the 1973 film starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. It’s all based on the memoirs of Henri “Papillon” Charriere, a safecracker who escaped from the supposedly unescapable-from Devil’s Island in French Guiana. Directed by Michael Noer. Co-starring Rami Malek, Eve Hewson and Tommy Flanagan. (R) 133 minutes. (SP) SEARCHING Reviewed this issue. Directed by Aneesh Chaganty. Costarring John Cho, Debra Messing and Sean O’Bryan. (PG-13) 102 minutes.

FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL FEVER The sixth annual Mole and Mariachi Festival returns to the beautiful Santa Cruz Mission State Historic Park on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. And the name of the game is the glorious Mexican mole in all of its complex deliciousness. Music, margaritas, My Mom’s Mole, plus lots more. Admission is free and mole tasting kits are available for purchase. The Festival is a benefit for nonprofit Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks, and event proceeds fund educational programs, visitor services and restoration at the Mission.

Greek Festival and Mole & Mariachi Festival converge on Santa Cruz this weekend BY CHRISTINA WATERS

L

ive like a Greek! Or at least dance, eat, drink, and party like one at the Santa Cruz Greek Festival, Sept. 7, 8 and 9th. The aroma of oregano and the taste of ouzo always transport me back to Crete, where I spent some time a while back savoring the joyful Greek approach to life. Slightly closer to home is the annual Greek Festival here, on the grounds of the Prophet Elias Church in downtown Santa Cruz. And if you have never taken in the sights, sounds and fabulous aromas of this wildly (justly!) popular street festival, now’s your chance. Greek folk dancing by costumed young

performers accompanied by live music from the Spartan Band, the kind that Zorba loved. Trust me, you’ll join in after that first glass of Metaxa. And you can comb through the Greek agora filled with gorgeous ethnic pottery, clothing and jewelry for sale. But as far as I’m concerned the big draw during this three-day adventure in Grecophilia is the food! Greek pastries are fine, delicate, and intensely flavorful, baked by members of the Prophet Elias congregation. Moussaka that is to die for is only one of the savory specialties you’ll want to surrender to. Roasted lamb, calamari, gyro,

souvlaki, spanakopita, and all of this tastes even better once you have stopped by the on-site Taverna and ordered a glass of authentic ouzo or that rich and bracing Greek brandy, Metaxa. The Greek Festival is your quick trip to Mediterranean party consciousness. Do not miss this event of lavish sensory proportions. Bring your friends. Stay all day. Put down your cell phone and dance! Friday, Sept. 7 from 5-10 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8 from 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 9 from noon to 7 p.m. Admission is free. 223 Church St., Santa Cruz. Details at livelikeagreek.com.

Chef David Kinch, who has famously embarked on a dining venture in the new Aptos Village complex, emailed me admitting that there’s “not much to say right now about the project,” but headed, “I am truly excited to be finally doing something on this side of the hill.” Kinch’s three-star Michelin restaurant Manresa experienced a recent fire, and Kinch says the renowned Los Gatos restaurant plans to reopen around Sept. 19. Chef/Owner Jeffrey Wall of the downtown Santa Cruz restaurant-in-progress Alderwood emailed me to confirm the debut is still scheduled for this fall, although there is “no firm opening date yet.” Ditto for the always almost Barceloneta tapas establishment. Erin Hempel tells me that her Aptos Companion Bakeshop should be ready to open Octoberish.

WINE OF THE WEEK From the fabled bargain wine shelf at Shopper’s Corner, I recently scored a bottle of 2013 McHenry Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir, marked down from $34 to $19.99. Yes, this is a big deal. The 13.4 percent alcohol wine shows off the terroir of the Bonny Doon estate’s 2-acre, 1,800-foot-elevation vineyard. An elegantly-structured Pinot, the McHenry opens with mint, blueberries, and a generous nose of bay leaves. The finish offers a distinctive suggestion of orange and mystery spice. Firm tannins. We have enjoyed this wine for two nights, first with Thai curry carry-out from Sabieng, and then with local king salmon from Shopper’s.

hile I enjoy exploring the food scene, and often go out of my way to try new restaurants, pop-ups and food trucks, there’s nothing like the comfort of returning to a beloved tried-and-true eatery. I love knowing what I’m going to order before I walk in the door. It’s so relaxing to remove the decision-making part of the dining experience and immediately ease into sweet anticipation of my meal, preferably with a beer or glass of wine in hand. I used to feel this way about Mission Street BBQ. For six years, I’ve been able to order the tri-tip sandwich with confidence. There was never a care on my mind as I devoured my reliably delicious meal, smoke wafting up the back of my palate as I savored each tender slice smothered in spicy barbecue sauce. I have been known to say on visits with friends, “Get the tritip. You won’t regret it.” But that phase of my life has come to an end. You think you know a place, and then one day you discover a secret menu item and it changes everything. 2018 is now the year of the Ribwich.

I feel like I’ve been living with my head in the sand when General Manager Mike Falco explains to me that the rib sandwich has been around for more than a decade at both Mission St. and Aptos St. BBQ, although it’s always been an off-menu item. “It’s definitely an underground thing. But for people who know about it, which is probably 20 percent of our customer base, that’s their go-to.” Falco explains that they only have the rib sandwich three or four times a week, depending on their supply of ribs. “We take racks of ribs that go through a duel cooking process of smoking and then roasting in the oven. It really tenderizes them.” Then they pop out the bones and lay the rib meat between soft ciabatta bread with their signature sauce. Softly crunching through the dark bark on the outside of the ribs and into a thick cut of tender, smoky rib meat is incredibly satisfying. In this sandwich, you get all of the enjoyment of ribs without all the work. Whether you’re a barbecue zealot or just very hungry, it will easily secure a place in your go-to menu.

Equinox, 334C Ingalls St., Santa Cruz, 471-8608. equinoxwine.com.

ROGUE PYE I tasted some very delicious

pies at a recent event in Aptos, all made by Rogue Pye. Around two dozen different kinds are available, including lamb curry, meat pye, chicken leek, chicken pot pie, and some veggie-centered ones such as cheese and onion and vegetable tikka masala. Owned by a couple from South Africa, Ed and Uandi Fordyce, Rogue’s pie crusts are made with real butter pastry and contain a plentiful filling. And for the Brits out there, Cornish pasty, sausage roll or a stout steak and mushroom pie are made, too. Rogue pyes are fully cooked and can be ordered online frozen. The Fordyces’ pies are in big demand—and they are turning them out like crazy and taking them to various events to sell. Try them at the Steel Bonnet Brewing Company in Scotts Valley from 4:30-8:30 p.m. on Sept. 7, and at the Capitola Art & Wine Festival on Sept. 8 and 9, and you can find a limited selection every day at East Cliff Brewing.

iano is a white Italian grape that many people are not familiar with. It’s a highquality grape used widely in Southern Italy, particularly in Campania. With its aromatic floral and honey notes and distinctly nutty flavor, it is gaining in popularity and achieving something of a renaissance. Winemaker Barry Jackson embraces the Fiano grape by making a beautiful sparkling 2015 Fiano Brut Ultra ($45) under his Equinox label, and a still-wine Fiano under his Bartolo label. With its vibrant flavors and spritzy bubbles, the fun and fabulous Equinox methode champenoise Sparkling Fiano is perfect for any celebration. I remember staying in the South of France with friends, and a splendid bottle of chilled Champagne was waiting for us as we entered their home. How delightful to celebrate the arrival of guests with a drop of bubbly.

H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES RE-THINKING THE WAY WE LIVE

Mercury, the messenger, is the planet of sharing information, communication, and developing new and interesting ideas. Mercury works with Virgo, sign of gardens and new realities (organizing and tending to them with motherly care). Virgo, sign of purity, cleanliness and health, seeks to create a new livingness and wholeness in the environment we find ourselves in (home, work, school, play, towns, cities, etc.). I recently discovered the book Pocket Neighborhoods: Creating Small Scale Community in a Large-Scale World by author and architect Ross Chapin. Chapin writes about creating small communities within neighborhoods. Why would we consider this? Our present world is experiencing a great

restlessness due to dramatic social, familial, educational, economic, monetary and other shifts. In times of restlessness, a divine discontent takes hold, helping us rethink our ways of living. Our training, education and language teach us to live separately from others (and thus isolated). In the times to come, the Aquarian era, this separation will not be a choice. Aquarius is the sign of creative individuals building communities, being cooperative, collaborative, constructing a bridge (of Light) from “the wilderness to the commons.” A reset is beginning to form in the life of humanity. New and alternative ways of living are needed, creating a new resonance with nearby neighbors and nature itself.

ARIES Mar21–Apr20

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22

Everything concerning daily life is evaluated. Observe your life, environments and all that is around you, assessing the ways you want to change in response to them and their needs. You realize you must do things differently from now on, considering what and how and the results. Careful at work when communicating with coworkers. You may sound harsher than usual. Observe health, diet, fitness, exercise, and how you feel each day.

Be aware of thoughts and issues and things not tended to for a long time coming into your present life, seeking the needed attention. Know that as a harmonizer you are always heard and seen by others. Be very clear when communicating; speak slowly, informing people exactly what your intentions are. Be non-judgmental, call forth compassion and patience. A quiet mindful retreat sustains you. Form a group of like-minded others to read, bead, crochet, paint, garden and/or bake together.

TAURUS Apr21–May21 Interesting situations and communication may occur with lovers, children, and your own creative identification. Unresolved issues in relationships will reappear, seeking a more harmonious conclusion. Remember to listen to the core message in all communications. Don’t defend. Pay attention carefully, instead. The unresolved issues must be dealt with, or there will be a dissolution of important things sometime in the future. Love and listening are everything.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

Everything about home, family, mother, real estate, and things domestic come into focus, needing careful perspective. Make no important decisions unless an emergency occurs. Everyone around you is experiencing the same present astrological transits, only everyone experiences them differently. Use your Gemini mind to observe and understand the differences. Ask for nurturing. Call upon patience. You heal quickly that way.

Notice if there is sensitivity (or changes) around these subjects: money, partnerships, joint resources/finances (something from the past?), thinking about career choices, communicating with co-workers, being misunderstood while in public, your life path, your future? It seems like every subject is fraught with sensitive feelings. “Don’t worry. Be happy.” Who sang that? He was right. This too will pass. Remind yourself that you are, everything is, just perfect.

Cancer, like a crab, circles a situation, moving to the center from every direction. Crabs, wary of their prey, never walk in a straight line. Cancer therefore has a very developed intuition. In the next month, that intuition may be even more illumined, filled with impressions and visions and information needing to be shared. Take care with communication. Something from the past is remembered. Or perhaps you’re planning on traveling to a place you called home. Forgetfulness is good sometimes.

LE0 Jul21–Aug22 How is your financial situation? Do not create any great waves in your financial picture. No loans (given or applied for), so there is no undue stress. Bring order and organization to finances, create new budgets, assess the flow of money (what’s coming in, what’s going out), and the hows and whys of these transactions, reviewing if everything you prepared for is proceeding as planned. Include a review of your values. And tithe.

GoodTimes.SC

Be aware that friends and groups are helpful for you to further define yourself. Have plans recently been delayed, changed or didn’t happen at all? Have those close to you been distant, internal or confused? Have thoughts, ideas and friends from the past made contact and have you considered re-entering a group or friendships from long ago? Allow no heartache or anguish from the past to continue. Your foundation is being restructured. Your daily life may feel foggy or veiled. It’s a protection.

GEMINI May 22–June 20

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 Are you feeling somewhat veiled, quiet, behind the scenes, unable to convey feelings? At this time you are very internally involved, your mind assessing spirituality and religion, memories from the past, what you learned and what you sacrificed. Your choices are clearly perceived and then reviewed to see if they still reflect your values and needs. Prayer at this time is helpful. It opens the heart.

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20 The “big guys” (Mars, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune and Chiron) are coming around for a bit of a chat. Saturn makes one serious and rather tired. Pluto lays transformations at our doorstep. Neptune makes us think we can’t think anymore. And Chiron tells us what hurts. Enter the Seed Group called the Observers, and just observe your life for a while. Assess promises and large decisions. So much is deeply internalized. Sometimes outer realities won’t make sense. Just keep gardening.

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18 You’re becoming more practical about money and resources. After the next two months it would be good for you to travel. However, at this point set new goals concerning your money and resources, reaffirm what is of value to you and eliminate all that is no longer useful, unused, untouched or not looked at in the past several months. Use this Virgo time to shed beliefs hindering you from reality, visions, hopes and dreams. Investing? Gold and silver are best.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 Maintain clean communication with partners, intimates and those close to you. Relationships seek to heal misunderstandings, disappointments, criticisms, overreactions, mixed messages and separations. Mediation may be needed for understanding to occur. Pisces is to assess the value of their own thoughts, minds, decisions and needs, and discriminate between the self and their beloved. Seeing the other as “luminous” is the disciple’s task. It heals all wounds.

Provoking thought since 1990

64

Continuing the conversation... A few folks reached out after last week’s column about people turning sixty-five. It must have hit close to home. Their stories were remarkably similar and all involved the same nagging questions and worries about the future. Coincidence? I think not. It’s part of the collective voice that’s echoing through the culture right now. I’m talking about m-m-my ge-ge-generation, the huge swath of aging baby boomers born between the end of World War Two and the assassination of JFK. The now-greying horde of eighty million that’s feeling its own mortality as it inches its way through the snaking belly of time. Moving inexorably closer to the tail end. From birth to youth to middle age to older adult, all of us are living somewhere on the continuum! What does any of this have to do with real estate? Don’t people just want to sell their house? Find out what it’s worth and how to find a buyer? After thirty years of doing this, I can say with some assurance that selling a house is never just about selling a house. When people are having trouble getting a fix on their lives, they tend to hunker down and shelter in place. They don’t start moving again until they feel more certain about what the future looks like. Which, in part, explains why active listings have been at such historic lows for the last five years. Whenever I show up for a listing appointment these days, ostensibly it’s to talk about real estate. But it usually doesn’t take very long to recognize that there are much bigger concerns that are really driving the conversation. For baby boomers it’s a litany of things: aging, worries about health, caring for elderly parents, being closer to kids, getting rid of stuff, planning for retirement and/or, finally, just the realization that since there are only a certain number of years left, why wait to make a change? The house is rarely the “real thing.” The life transition that’s behind selling a house is the real thing. Lots of those baby boomers turning sixty-five are looking for a road map. Easy-to-follow directions that will help them get from here to there. Not just from one house to another, but from their current place in life to the next. Of course there aren’t any maps, manuals or guidebooks for the last third of our lives, but the conversation has to start somewhere. And since our homes function as our largest assets and most important centering places, it makes sense that the conversation would start with them.

Occupation: Photographer, R. Jones Photography Hobbies: Textile/Oriental rug collector, traveling, cooking Astrological Sign: Scorpio What was your first impression of Shopper’s? I recall that it was the local place to go. Still is.They have everything that I need, and it’s all fresh. It’s mind-blowing! Shopper’s is my go-to store. I don’t like anything sitting long in my fridge, so I shop here every other day. I get these little organic carrots and it’s chomp, chomp, chomp — I go through them quickly. You prefer shopping local? Hands-down! Why are you even asking that question? I know the crew and I always run into people that I know. I have a good time here chatting with the butchers and joking with the checkers.They put up with me!

What do you like to cook? I keep it simple: Lots of fresh fish— really like Shopper’s salmon, shrimp and swordfish — plus veggies, rice and salads. Love their local organic produce. I’ll do some Mexican food with Shopper’s chicken and beef fajita mixes for lunch. Bam! It’s done in two minutes and I’ve got a great burrito! Another favorite is Pasta Mike’s— it’s the fresh stuff.You see Mike here quite a bit. It’s cool chatting with him. Shopper’s has great local products, like their salsas, guacamoles, tortillas and coffees. They also carry Mrs. Renfro’s canned jalapeño salsa.The best! Haven’t seen it elsewhere.

What would you say to someone new to the area about Shoppers? It’s the star of the community, it brings people together. Shopper’s is the biggest small store in town. It always surprises me that I’ll find these exotic items that my girlfriend asks me to pick up for the holidays. It’s a fun store, it’s comfortable — it’s like my second home! I like the size of the market and know what’s on every aisle. Shopper’s is fast and convenient because parking is easy and the checkers and baggers are friendly and also efficient.The butchers know me and know what I like.They do their job really well. Excellent service!
