OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE There is a long tradition of “anti-Valentine’sDay” Valentine’s Day issues at Santa Cruz altweeklies. Maybe it’s because journalists are naturally contrarians, or because the syrupy sweetness of the holiday is just so ripe for salting. But man, there have really been some great ones. Like the time we wrote about the ghosting phenomenon here at GT a couple of years ago. Or Georgia Perry’s “Take a Ride in the Junk Trunk” memoir back at Santa Cruz Weekly, which was the worst-date story to end all worst-date stories. And back at Metro Santa Cruz, we celebrated V-Day one year with a “No Sex” issue. It’s not always doom and gloom with our love lines. Former GT staffer (and current Love at First Bite columnist) Lily Stoicheff wrote a truly heartfelt defense of Valentine’s Day one year after she got sick of all our cold

COMPLICIT IN CENSORSHIP

4

Thank you so much, GT, for sharing the story about the Financial Times’ report on Netflix’s decision to, at the request of the Saudi government, pull an episode of The Patriot Act because host Hasan Minhaj criticized the Saudi government, which is responsible for the (still unpunished) murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi (GT, 1/9). It was important to hear again, loudly and clearly, how Reed Hastings of Santa Cruz, head of Netflix, downplayed his company’s stark act of complicity in censorship on behalf of a murderous regime by calling it “banal” and “benign.” He further claims that Netflix supports “artistic freedom.” Really? Until when? Until an authoritarian government with which you have business dealings requests you silence an artist for condemning that government? Hastings is the multimillionaire head of a media empire, and his casual disregard for the effects and implications of his actions

prickling. And I thought last year’s V-Day issue with Maria Grusauskas’ story on two local sex podcasters was remarkably cuddle-positive. But yeah, we’re back to our wetblanket ways this year—sorry, Lily! Our V-Day issue cover story is about divorce, it’s true; specifically, a local photo project that involves jamming people into a cursed wedding dress and getting them talking about their failed marriages. But I think Georgia Johnson’s profile of Kay Hansen and Georgia Cantando, the two women behind this phenomenon, actually proves that our fascination with the dark side of Valentine’s Day isn’t really rooted in some kind of nasty cynicism. It’s actually because the stories of our shortcomings and failures in love can sometimes be more revealing, moving and human than some idealized portrait of love triumphant—and are also super entertaining! Hansen and Cantando definitely understand this, and have taken it to a new level. So slip into something formal and uncomfortable, and give it a read! STEVE PALOPOLI | EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

on freedom of the press and intellectual freedom, and his willingness to cooperate with a violent, repressive government that wishes to continue to murder journalists unrestrained, is both supremely chilling and enormously revealing. With his words and actions, he shows himself, and his company, Netflix, as unfit to be one of the few mediums through which we may access brilliantly informative programs such as Minhaj’s. As a result, people of conscience will look for alternatives to Netflix. However, there are very few options for viewing media because U.S. antitrust laws have laid dormant for decades. Perhaps it’s time to dust them off, so that we have the choice to access media from companies that have respect for intellectual freedom and freedom of the press. As citizens who do not want to support companies that engage in immoral actions and decisions that destabilize the democratic process, what are we supposed to do? How far will participation in censorship by media monopolies go? JESSICA MURRAY | SANTA CRUZ

The Santa Cruz County Office of Education is coordinating the Santa Cruz County Mock Trial Competition. This year will be the 13th for the contest, which runs Feb. 6-27. Mock Trial gives students the chance to learn about their judicial system. Judges volunteer to preside over the hearings, and more than 40 local attorneys volunteer as scorers. The winning team will represent the county at the state finals in Sacramento in March.

Before southern California’s Carlsbad Desalination Plant opened in 2015, UCSC scientists saw an opportunity to study the effects that high-salinity brine might have on coastal waters. Their study’s results, published Jan. 25 in Water, included both good and bad news. There were no significant changes to nearby sea life from the discharge, they found. But salinity levels exceeded the permitted level, and the salt plume extended much farther offshore than had been permitted.

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of February 6 ARIES Mar21–Apr19

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22

Climbing mountains has been a popular adventure since the 19th century, but there are still many peaks around the world that no one has ever ascended. They include the 24,591-foot-high Muchu Chhish in Pakistan, 23,691foot Karjiang South in Tibet, and 12,600-foot Sauyr Zhotasy on the border of China and Kazakhstan. If there are any Aries mountaineers reading this horoscope who have been dreaming about conquering an unclimbed peak, 2019 will be a great time to do it, and now would be a perfect moment to plan or launch your quest. As for the rest of you Aries, what’s your personal equivalent of reaching the top of an unclimbed peak?

Multitalented Libran singer and actor Donald Glover uses the name Childish Gambino when he performs his music. How did he select that alias? He used an online random name generator created by the rap group Wu-Tang Clan. I tried the same generator and got “Fearless Warlock” as my new moniker. You might want to try it yourself, Libra. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to add layers to your identity and expand your persona and mutate your self-image. The generator is here: tinyurl.com/ yournewname. (P.S.: If you don’t like the first one you’re offered, keep trying until you get one you like.)

TAURUS Apr20–May20 Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” was a featured track in the movie 8 Mile, and it won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003. The creator himself was not present at the Oscar ceremony to accept his award, however. He was so convinced his song would lose that he stayed home. At the moment that presenter Barbra Streisand announced Eminem’s triumph, he was asleep in front of the TV with his daughter, who was watching cartoons. In contrast to him, I hope you will be fully available and on the scene for the recognition or acknowledgment that should be coming your way sometime soon.

Leonardo da Vinci’s painting Salvator Mundi sold for $450 million in 2017. Just 12 years earlier, an art collector had bought it for $10,000. Why did its value increase so extravagantly? Because in 2005, no one was sure it was an authentic da Vinci painting. It was damaged and had been covered with other layers of paint that hid the original image. After extensive efforts at restoration, the truth about it emerged. I foresee the possibility of a comparable, if less dramatic, development in your life during the next 10 months, Scorpio. Your work to rehabilitate or renovate an underestimated resource could bring big dividends.

GEMINI May21–June20

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21

While enjoying its leisure time, the peregrine falcon glides around at 50 miles per hour. But when it’s motivated by the desire to eat, it may swoop and dart at a velocity of 220 miles per hour. Amazing! In accordance with your astrological omens, Gemini, I propose that we make the peregrine falcon your spirit creature for the next three weeks. I suspect you will have extraordinary speed and agility and focus whenever you’re hunting for exactly what you want. So here’s a crucial question: what exactly do you want?

We can behold colors because of specialized cells in our eyes called cones. Most of us have three types of cones, but a few rare people have four. This enables them to see far more hues than the rest of us. Are you a tetrachromat, a person with super-vision? Whether you are or not, I suspect you will have extra powerful perceptual capacities in the coming weeks. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will be able to see more than you usually do. The world will seem brighter and deeper and more vivid. I urge you to deploy your temporary superpower to maximum advantage.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22 Now and then, the sun shines and rain falls at the same time. The meteorological name for the phenomenon is “sunshower,” but folklore provides other terms. Hawaiians may call it “liquid sunshine” or “ghost rain.” Speakers of the Tangkhul language in India imagine it as “the wedding of a human and spirit.” Some Russians refer to it as “mushroom rain,” since it’s thought to encourage the growth of mushrooms. Whatever you might prefer to call it, Cancerian, I suspect that the foreseeable future will bring you delightful paradoxes in a similar vein. And in my opinion, that will be very lucky for you, since you’ll be in the right frame of mind and spirit to thrive amid just such situations.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

A study by the Fidelity financial services company revealed that in 43 percent of all couples, neither partner has an accurate knowledge of how much money the other partner earns. Meanwhile, research by the National Institute of Health concludes that among heterosexual couples, 36 percent of husbands misperceive how frequently their wives have orgasms. I bring this to your attention in order to sharpen your focus on how crucial it is to communicate clearly with your closest allies. I mean, it’s rarely a good idea to be ignorant about what’s going on with those close to you, but it’ll be an especially bad idea during the next six weeks.

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 There are two kinds of minor, boring little tasks. One is when you're attending to a detail that’s not in service to a higher purpose; the other is when you're attending to a detail that is a crucial step in the process of fulfilling an important goal. An example of the first might be when you try in vain to scour a permanent stain on a part of the kitchen counter that no one ever sees. An example of the second is when you download an update for an existing piece of software so your computer works better and you can raise your efficiency levels as you pursue a pet project. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to keep this distinction in mind as you focus on the minor, boring little tasks that are crucial steps in the process of eventually fulfilling an important goal.

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 Can you sit on your own head? Not many people can. It requires great flexibility. Before comedian Robin Williams was famous, he spontaneously did just that when he auditioned for the role of the extraterrestrial immigrant Mork, the hero of the TV sitcom Mork and Mindy. The casting director was impressed with Williams’ odd-but-amusing gesture, and hired him immediately. If you’re presented with an opportunity sometime soon, I encourage you to be inspired by the comedian’s ingenuity. What might you do to cinch your audition, to make a splashy first impression, to convince interested parties that you’re the right person?

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22

PISCES Feb19–Mar20

Torre Mayor is one of the tallest skyscrapers in Mexico City. When workers finished its construction in 2003, it was one of the world’s most earthquake-proof buildings, designed to hold steady during an 8.5-level temblor. Over the course of 2019, Virgo, I’d love to see you erect the metaphorical equivalent of that unshakable structure in your own life. The astrological omens suggest that doing so is quite possible. And the coming weeks will be an excellent time to launch that project or intensify your efforts to manifest it.

Twitter wit Notorious Debi Hope advises us, “Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.” That’s wise counsel for you to keep in mind during the next three weeks. Let me add a few corollaries. First, stave off any temptation you might have to believe that others know what’s good for you better than you do. Second, figure out what everyone thinks of you and aggressively liberate yourself from their opinions. Third, if anyone even hints at not giving you the respect you deserve, banish them for at least three weeks.

I see children and teenagers riding these bikes around town, usually without helmets (which happens to be illegal as well as unsafe). I understand that Uber’s policy is merely intended to limit their liability and that they have no desire to try to actually enforce it. But where is the city? Does a kid have to be seriously injured or killed before they start enforcing the age limits (to say nothing of the helmet law for minors)?

WEB OF SILENCE New psychological guidelines tackle stereotypes that have

discouraged men from opening up about mental health.

No Man’s Land It took the #MeToo movement to shine a light on men’s mental health BY ANDREW STEINGRUBE

W

American Psychological Association (APA) recently issued guidelines—for the first time in its 127-year history— focused specifically on treatment of men and boys. The association had released similar reports for girls and women, LGBTQ+ people, racial and ethnic minorities and older adults, but never for men. At the root of the paper is a fundamental mismatch: “Boys and men, as a group, tend to hold privilege and power based on gender,” the report explains. But they also have disproportionately high rates of negative health and social outcomes, such as suicide, heart problems, violence, substance abuse, and incarceration. Along with the pressures of daily life,

the psychological and emotional weight of these risk factors often go unaddressed. “Many men do not seek help when they need it, and many report distinctive barriers to receiving gender-sensitive psychological treatment,” the APA report notes. That male emotional needs are often relegated to the backburner, or sometimes left off the stove entirely, is a familiar phenomenon to the leaders of the Central Coast nonprofit Breakthrough Men’s Community, which offers support groups and educational resources in Santa Cruz and Monterey counties. “I was stunned that it has taken the APA 127 years to address this subject,” says Executive Director Chris Fitz.

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019

hat is this salty discharge?” a befuddled Jerry Seinfeld wonders aloud as he wipes the tears from his eyes in an iconic scene from his namesake sitcom—a comedic take on the much bigger idea of male emotion and vulnerability, which even a few decades later can still feel quite foreign to many men. Now, a first-of-its-kind set of psychological guidelines and increasingly active local community groups hope to change that by questioning male stereotypes in an effort to improve access and quality for mental health care. Ironically, it was in the thick of the #MeToo movement that the

Breakthrough was created in 1978 to help men end “non-productive, painful, or abusive aspects of their lives.” The group has since expanded to offer more local programs that cover everything from addiction to becoming an ally for other types of people. “The most powerful ingredient” in changing behavior, Fitz says, is still often first-hand stories from other men. The APA’s own report echoes these sentiments, saying that research shows boys are taught from a young age to be “self-reliant, strong, and to minimize and manage their problems,” ultimately leading to “adult men who are less willing to seek mental health treatment.” Attempting to behavioral constructs in any culture, let alone one as entrenched as mainstream masculinity, is certainly not an easy undertaking. Many of the APA’s new guidelines suggest that psychologists dig deeper into other facets of male identity—like race, sexuality or other variables—that in the past may have led to feelings of stigma. Breaking cycles of physical or emotional turmoil that can lead to violence— against women or otherwise—is another focus of guidelines that urge mental health providers to encourage healthy family and social relationships. Santa Cruz and the Bay Area are among the many urban and suburban areas where non-traditional gender roles, co-parenting arrangements and stay-at-home dads have flourished thanks to legislation and some area companies’ more generous parental leave policies. Amid these broader cultural shifts, what groups like the APA and Breakthrough say is still missing are mental health services that acknowledge how times have changed. For John Hain, a member of Breakthrough on the Central Coast for over 20 years, such change is often easier said than done. A former forensic pathologist, he says that seeing the results of “self-neglect”— suicide, substance abuse, other risky behavior—all motivated him to focus on the role of emotional imbalance. “Challenges to these rigid mores are tremendously unsettling for many men,” says Hain.

NEWS SLOWING PROGRESS UCSC associate professor’s parking model shows how self-driving cars could create downtown gridlock

FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

BY JACOB PIERCE

12

For UCSC’s Adam Millard-Ball, it all started with a thought experiment. The associate environmental studies professor asked himself how self-driving cars might find parking within downtown areas in the coming decades, and he wondered how the resulting changes might affect traffic. He believes the cars of the future will be programmed to find the cheapest parking options available, and will have no need to park near their destinations after dropping their owners off. So will an autonomous vehicle drop off its passenger in a busy downtown metropolis and then park somewhere on the city’s outskirts for free? Will it drive back home, only to return downtown to pick up its owner again later in the day? Or will it simply seek out a two-hour parking spot and then move just before the two hours is up? Millard-Ball found that the answer to each of those questions is yes, after using game theory and a traffic simulation model to come up with his predictions. What surprised him, however, was the most common scenario the cars would choose, according to his experiment. Millard-Ball found that many cars will simply “cruise” around nearby until their owners finish with their downtown errands. The cars will coast around the streets, instead of looking for a spot, and create massive traffic jams in the process. His report argues the cars would “have the incentive to seek out and exacerbate congestion—even gridlock—in order to minimize costs to their owners.” Unless mitigated by significant changes in transportation or urban planning policy, he says that traffic could be disastrous for the quality of life in cities, like San Francisco, as well as university campuses like UCSC. Millard-Ball’s experiment created quite a stir on the internet on Friday. Someone posted a UCSC press release about the news to Reddit, where it catapulted to one of the site’s top three posts, quickly earning more than 70,000 upvotes via the forum’s science tab. The top commenter >16

Large internet service providers make deals with developers to squeeze out smaller competitors BY ALISHA GREEN

T

he internet service arrangement for the 94 new apartments at Five55 Pacific caught the team at Cruzio by surprise, they say. In late 2017, the Santa Cruz-based internet service provider paid the building developer, Swenson, to have a subcontractor build more than $15,000 worth of infrastructure and a telecommunications vault for the building, which would have allowed Cruzio to offer residents their services. Swenson officials told Cruzio to work with the telecommunications consultant on next steps, says Cruzio

CEO Peggy Dolgenos. The consultant was RealtyCom Partners, a San Rafael-based telecommunications consulting firm that specializes in “identifying, negotiating and maximizing new telecom revenue opportunities for real estate owners,” according to its website. The company negotiated terms, but Swenson made the final decision on which proposals to move forward with. Dolgenos says Cruzio never got to discuss or negotiate terms with RealtyCom. When the business received an update, Cruzio had been cut out of the deal, despite

Swenson’s assurances, Dolgenos says. AT&T and Comcast, which each agreed to pay for parts of their own infrastructure in the building, would be the two companies offering internet services to tenants. It rendered Cruzio’s $15,000 investment little more than a sunk cost, Dolgenos says. “We wasted that money just planning to serve all the apartments in there,” she says. Cruzio or any other service provider can still pay for its own infrastructure if it wants to serve residents at Five55, says Jeff >14

It’s just as important to walk cell free as it is to drive cell free. When walking and using a cell phone, you are too mentally distracted to fully focus on your surroundings. You might trip or bump into something like a street sign or wall—not cool. Even worse, looking at your phone instead of checking for traffic can lead to a serious collision. So can headphones that drown out the sound of approaching vehicles. Cell phone distraction helps make pedestrian-vehicle injuries the fifth leading cause of death for youth ages 5 to 19; yet no age group is immune to the consequences of distracted walking. Remember: put the phone down, earbuds out, and look before you cross. It’s the Street Smarts thing to do.

NEWS LOCAL CONNECT SHUN <12 Huff, project manager at Swenson. Cruzio would need building-owner approval to carry that out and introduce its service. (Huff couldn’t be reached for follow-up by deadline on whether or not Swenson would approve such an arrangement.) These kinds of arrangements are not uncommon in the wider telecommunications landscape, experts say. San Francisco passed a law in 2016 that says building owners cannot prevent internet service providers from accessing existing wiring in a building or installing their own wiring so they can offer service to occupants who’ve requested it.

When large telecom players started offering deals to developers in Santa Cruz in recent years, Cruzio staff began a conversation about how something like San Francisco’s law could help ensure consumer choice and a more level playing field for internet service competition. It brought the topic to the attention of city officials including Bonnie Lipscomb, economic development director for the city of Santa Cruz, and Lee Butler, the city’s director of planning and community development. Both are recommending the City Council consider a policy discussion on internet service provider competition. “When the City Council meets to develop priorities for a new work

plan, which should occur in the first half of this year, we expect such an ordinance will be one item that the Council may consider as part of that prioritization exercise,” Butler told Good Times in an emailed statement. The arrangement at Five55 also prompted discussions between Cruzio and Swenson about how to work together going forward so Cruzio could offer service in new developments, like the one at Park Pacific downtown. In that building, Cruzio, AT&T and Comcast can all provide internet service, and they are each “providing some portion if not all of the infrastructure from the street to the units,” Huff says.

THE KIDS ARE ALT-RIGHT

Two weeks ago, hundreds of Santa Cruz residents gathered on Pacific Avenue for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day march, united under the slogan “Justice. Equality. Love.” It was just a few days later that a very different type of sign started to show up around town again—the ones saying “It’s Okay to Be White.” If the phrase at first sounds truly bland, that’s on purpose. Like grown adults flashing the “OK” hand symbol in photos and the online cult of “Pepe the Frog,” the “It’s OK to Be White” (IOTBY) meme was spawned by message board site 4chan last year as an alt-right dogwhistle campaign to convince people irritated by identity politics “that leftists and journalists hate white people, so they turn on them,” as 4chaners put it. IOTBW signs were first reported on a Martin Luther King Jr. statue at Cabrillo College last year, after which the school sent a message to students saying the signs had been removed

to “tamp down this act of micro-aggression against our students... another disturbing example of the divisive climate that our culture faces right now.” Three months ago, Reddit commenters on a UCSC thread wrote that they had also received an email from the school after seeing “It’s OK to be White” drawn in chalk on campus, along with posters saying, “We Built This Country ... Don’t Apologize for Your Heritage” and “Be Proud of Who You Are.” In the meantime, similar IOTBW signs have been photographed at high schools and colleges in several other states across the country. The slogan, which the AntiDefamation League reports has a long history of use among U.S. white supremacy groups, has also gained global political traction. Last fall, the Australian Senate almost passed a motion to affirm that “it’s OK to be white,” before quickly reversing course. (Here’s where we pause to pour one out for the Internet-literate interns, upon which democracy’s institutions now somehow rest.)

In Santa Cruz, the late January re-emergence of IOTBW signs, which were photographed near the wharf and the downtown library, sent to GT and posted on social media, serve as a timely reminder. Even in a place where pussy hats and “Resist” paraphernalia have become the post-Trump norm, you never know where the next front line will emerge in an increasingly bizarre culture war.

BIKE SAFETY FIRST News that Santa Cruz’s crime rate had dropped was not news to Nuz. Violent crime was down 4 percent last year, and property crime decreased 21 percent compared to 2017, which is great. Those numbers are from the Santa Cruz Police Department’s annual Unified Crime Report submitted to the FBI—though the data did include blemish: arson was up 77 percent. Still, overall crime in Santa Cruz dropped 5 percent. It’s a start for our relatively high-crime area. But the original clue that crime was ticking down

came earlier last month. That’s when the Sentinel reported that safety-oriented advocacy group Santa Cruz Neighbors was setting off the alarm bells about the latest threat to our town: the wildly popular electric shared Jump bikes that are available for rent around the city, of course. Um, OK. We have some questions for these “neighbors.” First of all, you wheelie spoke out on this? What’s the cycleology behind this stance? Seriously, though, let’s be clear: Nuz takes no pleasure in seeing helmet-less 17-year-olds ride against the flow of traffic with friends on the handlebars like second-rate bozos ready to flunk out of clown school. But lousy bike riding was already at pandemic proportions, regardless of what some kids with their first credit cards have started doing when they get out of class. Consider this a call to action, people of Santa Cruz: Together we can find more pressing items to complain about. Like, maybe, the surge in people setting buildings on fire?

LOSE CRUISE A new UCSC study predicts that the advent of much-hyped selfdriving cars will cause major downtown traffic jams, as they coast instead of looking for parking.

wrote, “Instead of parking lots, there will just be a giant ‘lazy river’ of cars.” Millard-Ball likes the analogy. “That’s a really great description of what I’m modeling,” he says. Although several publications have blogged about his findings, he says GT was the first to call him up for an interview. He notes that, generally speaking, some urban planners have started to call for cities to start thinking about converting some downtown parking lots to higher uses, like housing, in light of autonomous cars and other expected transportation changes. But Millard-Ball believes it’s time to start thinking about how to mitigate the resulting traffic problems that he says are also coming. To be sure, it’s still unclear just how quickly self-driving cars will hit the streets— or how, exactly, the future of cars will look. A chart known as the Gartner Hype Cycle maps the level of enthusiasm that many tech trends tend to follow. According to that theory, interest spikes early, with a bump known as the “peak of inflated expectations,” and it’s followed by a cratering “trough of disillusionment.” Things pick up, the theory goes, after that, as innovations

then start trickling in, perhaps a little later than expected—ultimately leading to a slow, steady stream of breakthroughs before progress plateaus. Although many transportation experts are optimistic, selfdriving cars could follow a similar trajectory. As the Washington Post reminded everyone recently, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that one of his cars would be able drive itself across the country by 2018. This past fall, one crashed backing out of a garage. Millard-Ball has a solution for the downtown traffic jams that he’s predicting. It’s called congestion pricing, the process of charging drivers per mile that their cars travel on busy metropolitan streets. He foresees two challenges to doing that. The first is technological, although he believes barriers will go away once autonomous vehicles become widespread. The second is political. That’s why he says that government officials should act now to implement new regulations, at least on self-driving cars before they start popping up everywhere at once. ”People don’t like paying for something that they’ve been used to getting for free,” he says, “and that’s just as true for roads as it is for anything else.”

and development for Swenson, says Swenson decided to ensure Cruzio is in the mix on future projects. “We respect them,” he says. “We want them not to get hurt.” The offers from internet service providers to cover costs in new developments are just what is happening in the marketplace right now, Nickell says. “They are bringing a lot of sugar to the developers,” he says. Though federal and state laws prohibit access agreements that are explicitly exclusive, as San Francisco noted in its legislation, the amount of money poured into setting up internet connectivity in buildings and stipulations around ownership can create essentially the same result. “They are doing these package deals to try to get exclusives on the market, and they are giving a bunch of freebies away to get it,” Nickell says. “And by virtue of doing that you push out the small mom and pop like Cruzio.”

COMPETITION CRUNCH It wasn’t always like this. Typically— at least locally—developers would pay for the infrastructure that brings internet connections to each apartment, condo or office in a multi-unit building. Lately, though, large internet service providers like Comcast and AT&T have offered to pay for that infrastructure themselves. That can amount to tens of thousands of dollars in cost savings for developers trying to add housing stock at a time when there’s already a significant shortage. When internet service providers pay for the internet connectivity in a building, they might then stipulate that they own the rights to it for a set period of time or in perpetuity. That means they don’t have to let another internet company use those connections even if a tenant would prefer another provider. It also means that smaller internet service providers find themselves competing with what can be highcost deals from the large players. If they can’t or won’t pay upfront for the infrastructure that provides

internet throughout an entire building, they lose out on those potential customers. “Some developers may get their palms greased in the middle, but we all lose in the end,” says Robert Singleton, executive director of the Santa Cruz County Business Council. Singleton was a marketing consultant for Cruzio and the company’s Santa Cruz Fiber project until early last year. James Hackett, director of business operations and development at Cruzio, knows that developers feel a lot of financial pressures. Cruzio, he says, supports the growth that developers enable, because new residents and businesses could be future Cruzio customers. “The last thing we want to do is put barriers in the way of our developer colleagues and friends and say, ‘We see this is something you can take advantage of and can help you with your projects, but here is why you shouldn’t do it,’” Hackett says. “But those are exactly the types of conversations we do have with them.” Those conversations happen because he says he believes the costs are ultimately passed on to tenants. “In so many areas affecting the internet, we think competition is critical and it all comes back to that, really,” Hackett says. “Anything that is going to negatively impact competition is going to ultimately lead to poorer service, higher prices and continued monopolies of those big, national incumbents.” It’s nothing new for those incumbents to use their weight to try to edge smaller competitors out of a growing market, says Steve Blum, owner and president of Tellus Venture Associates, a Marina-based consultancy specializing in broadband. Blum consults on broadband topics for cities across the state, with local clients including Santa Cruz, Salinas and Watsonville. Both AT&T and Comcast “have a history of focusing their firepower on small, competitive threats,” Blum says, and he’s “seen this in community after community.” “That is the way it should >18

HOMELESSNESS IN SANTA CRUZ By Datta Khalsa, Broker It may strike some as odd that someone in the real estate industry would be writing a column about homelessness, but the fact is that the issue is no less applicable for people with homes than it is for people who are homeless. I recently hosted a panel of 7 local individuals on Santa Cruz Community Television in a discussion on homeless issues in our area. The discussion was largely centered around the “Ross Camp” tent encampment of roughly 200 people in front of Gateway Plaza at the entrance to the City of Santa Cruz and its impact on the surrounding community. My guests on the show included two residents of the nearby Tannery Arts Center; a family who owns a home on Felker Street, experiencing high levels of transient vehicular and foot traffic; Brent Adams, who is program director for the Warming Center Program; and homeless spokesman Michael, who is a current resident at the Ross encampment. More than anything, I was struck by how similar the views and responses were amongst my guests to proposed possible solutions regarding the issues posed by the growing homeless problems. The show began with a discussion about the obvious negative impacts of the encampment on the immediate neighborhood, both in its visual impression as well as the disruption that it has created for nearby residents on both sides of the river in the form of sanitation, theft and drug use issues. But the epiphany for many at the discussion was the voice of Michael, who articulated similar views and frustrations on these very issues, speaking as one who is acutely impacted due to his living in close quarters with individuals who perpetuate these problems that he says are unfairly associated with all homeless people.

FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

This created a visible unlocking of predisposed barriers between him and the other guests, and prompted the homeowner on Felker Street to ask what would be the ideal situation for someone like him who wants to remain homeless by choice.

From there, the discussion evolved into an active problem-solving session on topics ranging from dignified living and enforcement of community rules to transitional routing centers that could get people on the right path of treatment for the issues relevant to their situations. These include job and housing placement, mental health, drug and alcohol treatment, as well as more active law enforcement to weed out the transgressors who live among the general homeless population.

The Felker Street resident also asked if the City and/or Cal Trans could create an alternate pathway for the homeless to use instead of their street for their migration between the Health and Unemployment offices on Emeline and the shelter at Harvey West. It could help mitigate the impact on residents like him who have felt increasingly imposed upon by the sharp increase in transient activity of late.

While no clear answers emerged, it was heartening to see an active discussion amongst the various affected parties, and it gave hope that a solution might be achieved with enough continued focus.

work,” he adds, “but when you have the level of market control they have, it is not truly a competitive marketplace.” AT&T and Comcast might be keeping a closer eye on their competitive edge and market share in Santa Cruz since Cruzio began building its own fiber network, on which the city has considered becoming a partner. Lipscomb wrote in an emailed statement that “other providers began investing in builds and greater access as a result” of those talks. Representatives for AT&T did not respond to multiple requests for comment about their approach to working with developers on service for new buildings in Santa Cruz. Joan Hammel, senior director of external communications for the California Region at Comcast, wrote in an emailed statement that “Comcast is always pleased and proud to provide innovative products and services to property owners who choose to have us serve their tenants.”

WIRE TO WIRE For now, Santa Cruz offers a twopage document to developers with guidance on “broadband best practices for new construction.” The document is not backed by an ordinance, so the city cannot require that developers follow it. Hackett says the ideal situation for Cruzio is that developers would own the internet infrastructure inside a building and make it accessible to any provider who wants to use it. If that’s not a cost developers want to shoulder, the next-best scenario might be an arrangement where the infrastructure is jointly built by providers that want to offer internet service in a building, Hackett says. Then they could each serve any tenants who want their services. He’s optimistic that there’s at least a conversation around internet competition. “The local stakeholders all want the same thing,” Hackett says. “It’s just a question of how to get there.”

the Dubois St. location as a distribution and headquarters space. “We are rebuilding it from the ground up,” says KindPeoples Marketing Director Brett Friel. “We hope that it’s a new way to shop for cannabis that Santa Cruz hasn’t seen before, with open air gondolas and a different presentation.” The Ocean St. location will include self-serve checkout kiosks, similar to those at grocery stores, for those who want express check outs. KindPeoples is going to introduce the self-checkout at the Ocean St. location and potentially move it to the Soquel Ave. location further down the line. Between the online ordering, delivery and the self-checkout kiosks, KindPeoples is reinventing the accessibility of cannabis. “Legalization has brought a lot of new customers and we want to make sure that we are serving the new and

the legacy medical customers from years past,” Friel says. “We can now serve those who need the full consultation and introduction to cannabis and also those that are running errands and just need to pick something up.” Friel says since cannabis became legal in California last year, there’s been an increasing number of external investors moving into local communities, so where KindPeoples chooses to bank matters not only for their own financial well-being, but for the local economy too. “Local businesses supported by other local businesses is crucial,” Friel explains. “Each town has the ability to prosper from this new industry and we want to make sure that the local community benefits.” Unlike many other nationally owned banks, the Santa Cruz Community Credit Union (SCCCU)

caters to dispensaries and helps support their financial business goals. KindPeoples has been banking with the SCCCU since they opened in 2014, and says they’ve helped them to make their business ventures a reality. “The credit union is very supportive of our business and really helped us begin management of our finances from the start,” Friel says. “It’s a great community business and a great partnership. We are a growing business and as we grow our relationship grows with them.”

KindPeoples is in the business of firsts. It’s Santa Cruz’s first state-legal dispensary and the first to get eight of 20 state licenses issued by the Bureau of Cannabis Control. Following their trend of firsts, they are also now the first local dispensary to offer a legal cannabis delivery service. On Jan. 21, KindPeoples began delivering a full menu of cannabis products to addresses within the City of Santa Cruz on non-publicly owned land. In offering their delivery service, KindPeoples wanted to increase access for those with disabilities or transportation issues. Likewise, KindPeoples is also relocating their retail license from DuBois St. to Ocean St., citing the desire for a more community-centered location closer to downtown Santa Cruz.

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019

decade ago, Kay Hansen found her husband's ex-wife’s wedding dress in her closet, and she didn’t know what to do with it. It hung there for two years—rather annoyingly in the way, considering that she saw it each time she needed a shirt or pair of shoes. The ex-wife didn’t want it back, so her fiancé suggested eBay, since it was, after all, very expensive. But they were about to find a more practical use. It only took a few drinks and a round of pool at the westside Parish Publick House before Hansen and her best friend Georgia Cantando had the worst idea. After popping a bottle of champagne, the two decided to break out the dress for a photo shoot. “It was so wrong, but so right,” Cantando says with a laugh. By the time Hansen’s husband got home, they had put the dress on Cantando—complete with a scarf and coconut bra—while Hansen wore her own wedding dress and a black corset. “We just had the best night,” says Hansen. “Georgia was making speeches to the ex-wife.” What started as a joke turned into a bigger project. In the years since, Cantando and Hansen have gotten hundreds of people from across North and Central America into the ex’s dress. It’s opened a door to a larger project called “The Divorce Dress,” for which the women travel around and get other people try the dress on— married or not—take photos, and talk about their own breakups in a safe, comfortable space.

and even to each other. The best friends got married at Burning Man around 10 years ago while Hansen was wearing her wedding dress. She was standing in line at the PortaPotties wondering how she was going to navigate the dress inside the little toilet space when a man introduced himself as a minister and asked if he could officiate her wedding. “I married my best friend,” Hansen says. “Georgia’s husband gave her away!” Thanks to social media, Hansen

and Cantado no longer have to reach out to candidates to include—people come to them to put the dress on and tell their own stories. More recently, they partnered with celebrity family attorney Laura Wasser to write articles on divorce and relationship endings. They hope that through their writing and project they can help normalize divorce and show that everyone has a story worth telling. Both women’s lives included some aspect of divorce long before the project started. Hansen’s first marriage ended in divorce, and Cantando’s parents were divorced when she was younger. “We get more people laughing in the dress than crying in the dress, that’s for sure,” Cantando says. The dress itself was originally a size 2, so it had to be modified with a corset-style lace back to fit all ages and sizes. Last week, the women came by the GT office and brought the dress with them. Though they didn’t make anyone try it on, they brought their images and plenty of crazy stories from divorcées,

including a possible murder, domestic abuse and stalking. People who have never been divorced have also worn the dress, and the pair also want to take it to places where divorce is frowned upon, like parts of the Middle East. “We need to make this not taboo anymore. Everyone needs to be able to have a conversation about it and be themselves,” Hansen says. “Divorce does not end with the paperwork,” Cantando adds. “It does not end when you move out of the house or everyone says, ‘Oh I’m sorry that happened.’ It continues to shape who you are.” Cantando and Hansen currently meet with three or four subjects a month, depending on their schedules. They say that they’ve interviewed five or six people a day on project trips. With the help of an assistant, they interview and photograph the person on site. There is plenty of champagne, and the women sit and just listen to other people’s relationships, expectations and feelings about their exes.

SAY YES TO THE

Divorce DRESS

“We get more people laughing in the dress than crying in the dress, that’s for sure.” - GEORGIA CANTANDO <28 Afterword, they will often write haikus based on phrases and words that were particularly memorable. “Usually Georgia will go up to people on the street and say we are working on an art project, or she will spark a conversation at a bar or restaurant and it happens pretty organically,” Hansen says. So far, talking to people has been relatively easy and painless. They say they expect a few more roadblocks and differing opinions on divorce when they travel outside of California. “At first, we got an awful lot of 40-something white women in the dress, but it’s always been important for us to include people from all ages, ethnicities, sexual and religious orientations,” Cantando says. “That’s why we want to travel around and meet people who have different views and experiences around divorce.” With the debut of their book coming just in time for Valentine’s Day next year, Hansen and Cantando hope to raise enough money through their GoFundMe to travel to Europe next month. On May 4, their exhibit at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History will likely include confessional-style anonymous storytelling in the spirit of conversations around breakups. “If anyone wants to share their story we take written stories and are around locally,” the women say. “We keep the dress in a suitcase. It lives there, so she’s ready to go at all times.” thedivorcedress.com.

“There’s such real emotion, because it’s about universal feelings. It’s about feeling lonesome and blue and hearing a train at midnight. But some of the songs we sing are lighthearted, witty, even funny. I am really amazed that as different as our individual voices are, we have found that we can blend beautifully.” -HEIDI RENTERÍA <32 “We invited Jim to come over and sing the following year,” Rentería recalls. “The trio format, supported by Jim’s guitar, quickly clicked, and the Sister Brothers were born.” The three singers focus on music rooted in backcountry traditions where close, three-part harmonies are key—and, as Landry puts it, “full of memories of the singing of friends and family.” They work arrangements out collaboratively by ear. “Each of us takes turns at singing lead, and who sings which harmony part, above or below the melody line, changes from song to song,” says Rentería, who says she loves this music “most of all for the fabulous lyrics.” “There’s such real emotion, because it’s about universal feelings,” she says. “It’s about feeling lonesome and blue and hearing a train at midnight. But some of the songs we sing are lighthearted, witty, even funny. I am really amazed that as different as our individual voices are, we have found that we can blend beautifully.” MacKenzie, who plays guitar with the group, explains the vocal range spanned by the trio. “Dan sings the really high vocals. My range is bass through baritone to middle tenor. It’s a pretty broad range, but I can’t really reach that super-high vocal range that bluegrass singing especially calls for.” As for the versatile Rentería, “sometimes I’m singing the lowest part, sometimes the middle, more frequently the top line. We think that including solo and duet parts, passing around the lead and the harmony parts, and

varying the accompaniment keeps our audience from getting bored.” The music they make together is undeniably powerful. “I think the appeal of our music stems both from the emotional content of the songs we select to sing and from our close vocal harmonizing,” MacKenzie says, “As an adolescent and well into my 20s, I sang in duos and trios and loved it. Being able to do that again now has been an extremely gratifying and fulfilling experience,” he adds. “Giving close attention to these songs and discovering new ways to use the voice,” says Landry, “reveals how flexible and expressive it can be.” Renteria sums up the joy of singing harmonies as "the physical breathing together, the intense being in the moment, listening to each other and to ourselves, trying different ways of treating a line or a word or a note, constantly influencing each other. Singing harmonies, you know you’re alive!" All three singers bring fierce discipline, energy and miles of insight to this music that burrows deep into the heart of the American experience. And each agrees that it is the emotional depth of even the simplest tunes and plainest lyrics that casts Sister Brothers’ lingering spell. Sister Brothers will perform a sit-down concert of American songs from the mid-1800s through the first half of the 20th century from songwriting masters like the Delmore Brothers, Bill Monroe, the Everly Brothers and more.

THEATER

‘VELVET’ GLOVES Jeremy Kahn (left) and Aldo Billingslea spar in ‘Red Velvet.’ PHOTO: STEVE DIBARTOLOMEO

Black Roles Matter

L

ondon was the center of the theater world in the 19th century, and Edmund Kean was one of its most celebrated Shakespeareans. So when Kean collapsed during an 1833 performance of Othello, the part was offered to another celebrated actor, Ira Aldridge. What could go wrong? Well, for one thing, Aldridge was an American. And for another, he was black. Such is the tantalizing setup for the Jewel Theater’s new production of Red Velvet by British playwright Lolita Chakrabarti. Using the past to explore the present cultural conversation,

Chakrabarti probes a suite of issues and situations, from acting styles and gender roles to the lingering racism that dogged England even after the country abolished slavery in 1831. If that sounds like a full plate for a single play, it is. But the consummate cast, stylish set and ingenious ensemble direction power Red Velvet to an absorbing two hours of theater. The drama begins and ends in Poland, but we also travel to London with Aldridge (played here by Aldo Billingslea). The play plunges directly into the heart of the action, where Kean’s acting company learns of the new Othello. There is much storming by

Kean’s son Charles (Jeremy Kahn) when he’s told by company manager Pierre Laporte (Jeffrey Fiorito) that Aldridge will play Othello. The ensemble—celebrated actress Ellen Tree (Jennifer LeBlanc), young Henry Forrester (Teddy Spenser), veteran actor Bernard Warde (Jesse Caldwell), and a histrionic Betty Lovell (Shannon Warrick)—have all heard of Aldridge, but no one has actually seen him. So when the actor strides into rehearsal full of energy and ideas, they are stunned. The linchpin of Chakrabarti’s plot—a black man daring to play a black man—unleashes melodrama aplenty.

‘Red Velvet’ by Lolita Chakrabarti runs at the Jewel Theater through Feb. 17. jeweltheatre.net.

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019

Jewel Theater’s ‘Red Velvet’ uses an old theater rivalry to explore the modern conversation about race BY CHRISTINA WATERS

“This isn’t a circus,” snarls Charles Kean, who refuses to step on the same stage as Aldridge. Oh, the irony. It’s a sense of irony that reverberates throughout the play. If Aldridge is worthy of playing the Moor merely because he is in fact a black man, argues Kean, then any fat drunk could be scooped up from the alleys and cast as Falstaff. Not only is a black man unwelcome on the London stage—as scathing reviews from that first night prove—but as an American, Aldridge is deemed unskilled, unprofessional and unworthy to perform Shakespeare. Theater exists to reflect who we are, says one character in Red Velvet. It’s always political. Yet another character insists, “actors should never ask questions—just play.” Given sophisticated dialogue about theatrical styles and the intent of Shakespeare's characters, the Jewel production’s actors polish each line into gem-like precision. So much is surprising, crisp and even illuminating about Red Velvet that a few false steps at the end feel all the more disappointing. As Aldridge’s career in London ends, the stalwart Billingslea is required to burst into histrionics. The play is largely at fault here, and Chakrabarti feels compelled to take on women’s rights, health care injustice and educational disparities in addition to the weighty issues already explored. That’s too much to ask a two-hour drama to juggle. But Red Velvet is so inventive and so well acted that one can squint at the playwright’s fervor. When the actors are all together on stage, this production moves beautifully. And while each performance shines, Jennifer LeBlanc’s vocal clarity and physical presence stand out. When she and Billingslea enact one key, hairraising scene from Othello, the stage becomes electric. Briskly entertaining, Red Velvet invites the audience to think about some complex issues. I was hooked throughout and occasionally transported. Not much can surpass live theater in delivering so much.

MUSIC

HAVE GUNN, WILL TRAVEL Steve Gunn performs on Sunday, Feb. 10 at Moe’s Alley.

Sides Unseen FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Kurt Vile collaborator Steve Gunn looks to Dylan and Neil Young for new dimensions of his sound BY MIKE HUGUENOR

36

L

ong before recording began, guitarist-songwriter Steve Gunn knew he wanted his new album The Unseen in Between to have a vibe similar to early Dylan and Neil Young records. “They all have that feeling like you’re in the room with them. It’s loose, spontaneous and it gives the music a kind of heightened energy,” Gunn says by phone from his Brooklyn home. But there was a problem. Neil Young had Crazy Horse. Dylan had the Band. When Gunn and his producer started talking through the album, he didn’t even know who was going to play on it. It’s one thing to want a “loose, live” energy for an album, and another entirely to have the band to pull it off.

Though he rose to attention as the guitarist for Kurt Vile’s band the Violators, Gunn’s solo work (now a staggering 15 albums deep) has long been in the tradition of artists like Dylan and Young, a breed of folk music that is pensive, kaleidoscopic, full of soft psychedelia and a subtle, unfurling melodicism. And while 2016’s Eyes on the Lines had a certain breezy looseness to it, what Gunn was looking for this time was something more visceral. That’s when an unlikely encounter with a guy named Tony Garnier, who was hanging around the studio, led to what is arguably Gunn’s strongest work to date. “There was another session happening before we started

working on the record, kind of like a ‘who’s who’ of folk music doing this compilation of songs,” Gunn says. “And Tony, one of the bass players, was in there for a few of the days.” Garnier, though far from a household name, has an impressive resume. In 1989, after a stint in the Saturday Night Live band, he joined Dylan’s band as bass player. As of 2018, he is now the longest-running collaborator of Dylan’s career, having become the band’s unofficial musical director. “We just started shooting the shit, and he was just like, ‘Hey man, if you need a bass player, I’m around. I would love to come in.’” Recorded over a few isolated sessions in 2018, The Unseen in

Between—which was released last month—is calm, confident and made up of Gunn’s best songs thus far, the whole thing buoyed by the assured performances of Garnier and drummer TJ Maiani. “We didn’t want to overthink it— it’s not this complicated thing. It’s all about the feel,” Gunn says. Adding to it all is Gunn’s own performance, which was captured entirely live. “The way I made albums before, it was always like adding other guitar parts after the fact, doing vocals after all the tracking was done,” he says, describing the normal process for most contemporary musicians. This time, however, Gunn sang and played the songs in a single take with his band, putting on tape the song exactly as it was played. “We did overdubs, of course, but the core of the songs, it’s like a performative approach. Before the sessions, I was going to my little studio and sitting for a full day and playing. Playing and playing and playing. Getting them up to speed, and getting them ready.” As a result of that preparation, the playing on The Unseen in Between is close to impeccable. Diverse in mood and feel (and, at times, spare), there is a vitality to the performances on the album that lifts Gunn’s already distinctive songwriting, in a live, loose sort of way. On songs like opener “New Moon,” Gunn’s pendulous baritone emerges from within the performance, bobbing to the top of the mix like another instrument. “New Moon” is followed by “Vagabond,” which plays like a New York folk version of the Smiths’ “There is a Light That Never Goes Out.” A descending lick Gunn plays on the acoustic at the end of each phrase of the verse is worth the price of admission alone. “All releases adhere to kind of a schedule now,” Gunn says, before we hang up. “It’s been a lot of waiting, but now I’m ready. It’s exciting for me and the band to get out there and play.” Steve Gunn performs at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10 at Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Drive, Santa Cruz. $15 adv/$20 door. 479-1854.

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND

12 DECEMBERS Melody Egbert was writing dubstep songs when they met Myles Stevens, who was also doing their own dubstep music. The two together decided to collaborate, and went in a different direction, creating highly emotional, shoegaze-influenced pop music. “I always felt that my life was the end of some sort of teen movie, and I wanted to write those songs because it was what I was feeling,” Egbert says. “I'm glad I moved away from it (dubstep) because it was a little unrewarding to listen back to.”

FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

The progressions in the songs are all at their core pretty basic song structures, but with the layers of instruments and vocals, it creates an ethereal sound that is immediately stirring, setting an intense mood that transcends any single part.

46

“Everyone involved with the project has been going through some shit in our lives that we wanted to get out,” Egbert says. Other local players will accompany the group at their shows, depending on who’s available. So it makes sense that most of the band’s album covers and images have been blurry—though it also fits the band’s sound.

His laid back flow that hides years of writing and practice, his 10-year hip-hop career, culminating in last year’s Be Fucking Happy, his 15th album. Then there is his name, a take on his belief that humans should be constantly seeking change for the better. But far be it for us to tell anyone how to think. Go see this Sebastopol artist upfront and personal at the Blue Lagoon and start your own list of reasons to love him.

sical flights of fancy without having to check in with bandmates. Gispert as captain and pilot means songs less grounded in southern garage rock and more atmospheric, with introspective meanderings, acoustic elaborations and a voluminous vocal range. He wrote Sunlight Tonight completely outside, while living on a plot of farmland. His songs dizzy with self-determination and giddy with the realization of a never-ending horizon, Gispert may never return to the world of collaborators and compromise. AMY BEE 9 p.m. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $10. 429-6994.

JAZZ

“We like to make very dreamy music, A little shoegaze-y. We want the imagery to reflect that,” Egberts says. “I think over time if our sound matures we might change the art style. But for the foreseeable future it is going to be blurry images and the rip-off My Bloody Valentine font.”

8:30 p.m. Blue Lagoon, 923 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $5 adv/$10 door. 423-7117.

THURSDAY 2/7 INDIE

PARKER GISPERT

Watching the evolution of Leyla McCalla has been one of American music’s great pleasures in recent years. The Haitian-American singer-songwriter has come into her own as a band leader who soaks up all the vibrations around her, transmuting sounds and experiences into strikingly beautiful music. Since moving to New Orleans in 2010, she’s had two children, and both experiences

shape the music on her gorgeous new album The Capitalist Blues. She’s touring with a band plucked from the New Orleans jazz scene. At 33, she continues to explore the Creole cultural currents running between Port-au-Prince and New Orleans while extending her purview to the horizons. ANDREW GILBERT 7 p.m. Kuumbwa Jazz, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $31.50 adv/$36.75 door. 427-2227.

FRIDAY 2/8 BLUEGRASS

HOT BUTTERED RUM Hot Buttered Rum will get you drunk with just a couple quick listens to their sweet and smooth tunes. The band returns to Santa Cruz for another night of no-holdsbarred debauchery. This five-piece bluegrass band has been quenching their audiences’ thirst for music for 17 years, with their sixth studio full-length album, Lonesome Panoramic, released last year. Their traditional style of mountain music is so addicting it will have you

LATIN

9 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $15 adv/$20 door. 479-1854.

If you want to dance—and I know you do—but don’t want to commit to any one dance genre, La Misa Negra, a seven-piece cumbia band from Oakland, is calling your name. Driven by fierce horn riffs and kick-ass accordion antics, Afro-Latin music has never sounded so punk. Or heavy metal. Or hip-hop. Or disco. Okay, maybe not disco for more than a second or two. La Misa Negra combines the traditional, like currulao, tambora and salsa, with whatever contemporary inspiration tickles their fancy, creating a sound they call, “retro-future cumbia.” AB

SATURDAY 2/9 ELECTRO-FUNK

SUNSQUABI Is there a place where jam bands collide with EDM? The answer is yes, and apparently that place is Colorado, the state where electro-funk trio Sunsquabi lay their gyrating heads at night. It’s nothing new for electronic groups to incorporate non-electronic instruments in their music these days, but Sunsquabi takes it a step further and gives the music the meandering, low-key groove that has made stoners follow Phish and the Dead around for decades. And yet somehow it fits entirely in the electronic pill-popping realm. Ponder that contradiction while you are lost in the funk. AC 9 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $14 adv/$16 door. 423-1338.

LA MISA NEGRA

9 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $15 adv/$20 door. 479-1854.

MONDAY 2/11 ART-ROCK

ON DRUGS Weirdly psychedelic (and also just plain weird), Portland’s On Drugs promises a set of songs that will “make grandma cry” and “leave dad sweating like a hooker in church.”

So in case you were planning on bringing three generations of family to this Monday’s show, be warned. Playful and assaulting in equal measure, On Drugs have a bit of the Unicorns in their DNA, blended up with the hard-partying trash rock of FIDLAR. Before you know it, they’ll have you singing in a falsetto about slamming 40s and smoking out your cat. MIKE HUGUENOR 9 p.m. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz. $7. 429-6994.

ROCK

THE RAD TRADS Traditionalism isn’t exactly Santa Cruz’s main squeeze. Luckily, the Rad Trads aren’t exactly traditional in a Leviticus sense. It’s more of a “get down and dance to rock ’n’ roll” traditionalism, a la the Rolling Stones. The Stones themselves get a name drop on 2016’s “Keith Richards & I,” a song with the same tightly wound energy and loose morals of it’s title hero. Call it traditional, call it a classic. It’s all rock ’n’ roll to me. MH 7 p.m. Kuumbwa, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $26.25 adv/$31.50 door. 427-2227.

1750 Wharf Rd., Capitola. $50 per person. 475-1511. Information: www. shadowbrook-capitola.com. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7 to find out how you can win.

FILM

CONTROVERSIAL PIC The family of James Bulger has railed against Vincent Lambe’s Detainment, the short film based on the story of the 2-year-old’s murder, but it was nominated for an Oscar this year nonetheless.

Deep Slate FEBRUARY 6-12, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

This year’s Oscar-nominated short films are a remarkably bleak bunch BY LISA JENSEN

52

A

ll you have to do to know there’s something rotten in the state of the world is look at this year’s slate of Oscar-nominated short films. Endangered children, old age and regret, racism, irresponsible parenting, and random homicide all figure in the five live-action shorts nominated for a 2019 Academy Award. The companion program of animated short films is not all that more upbeat, touching on themes of dysfunctional psychiatry, dementia, divorce, and death, among other things. Call it a sign of these dire times, but grim seems to be the pervading tone among this year's crop of fledgling filmmakers singled out by Academy voters.

As in recent years past, once the Academy nominations are announced, the contending short films are packaged for theatrical release. There are two separate programs (with two separate admissions), one for the five liveaction shorts, and one for the five animated shorts (with a couple of bonus films thrown in to stretch out the animated program to featurelength). But unlike years past, there's only one overt comedy in all 10 nominated shorts, the animated psychiatry satire Animal Behavior. Funny animals (including a timid leech and an ape with angermanagement issues) attempt to sort out their problems with

an avuncular, bespectacled dog therapist in this cheeky effort by Alison Snowden and David Fine. The gag wears a little thin, but crisp dialogue keeps it amusing. In the live-action program, Marguerite, by French filmmaker Marianne Farley, is a beautifully acted tale of the bond between an elderly woman and the younger woman who is her visiting caregiver. It’s an oasis of tenderness and compassion amid a bunch of films devoted to violence and perversity. The program begins with Vincent Lambe's harrowing Detainment. Written largely from police transcripts, this true story follows the events that led two 10-year-old Liverpool schoolboys to become the

youngest defendants ever convicted of murder in the UK. Marvelously wellacted (especially by its young stars) and discreet about how much of the crime it chooses to show onscreen, it nevertheless drags viewers along in an atmosphere of non-stop dread. This is followed immediately by Jeremy Comte’s Fauve, another tale of two boys (French Canadian, this time) running amok out in the countryside that comes to an abrupt and horrifying conclusion. (After that double-whammy, distressed viewers might be forgiven for going out for popcorn and never coming back.) Films are presented alphabetically, and yet it’s questionable to lead off this program with two films so similar in their bleak nihilism. Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s Madre is a taut mini-thriller about a woman grappling with a cell phone call from her 6-year-old son in jeopardy. The filmmaking is crisp and intense, but Sorogoyen has no exit strategy; the story just stops. And the final live-action entry, Skin—set in America’s pick-up-driving, shotguntoting yahoo country—explores deeply ingrained racism and its consequences in a manner better suited to The Twilight Zone. The animation program is more user-friendly. Louise Bagnall’s lyrical, emotionally stirring Irish entry Late Afternoon, beautifully rendered in fluid pastel watercolors, features an older woman diving deep into the well of memory to piece together fragments of a life she’s forgotten. One Small Step, from Andrew Chesworth and Bobby Pontillas, charms with its tale of a plucky Asian girl in San Francisco and her cobbler single dad who does everything he can to support her dream of becoming an astronaut. The annual Pixar/ Disney entry, Bao, by Domee Shi, is a metaphorical fable about a a Chinese woman who forms a maternal attachment to a dumpling. There are many lovely and intriguing moments in both programs— especially the animated offerings—but there’s not one E-Ticket item here that just grabs you by the lapels and leaves you awestruck. Maybe next year. OSCAR-NOMINATED SHORT FILMS: LIVE-ACTION (Not rated) 109 minutes. (**) ANIMATION (Not rated) 80 minutes. (***)


FILM NEW RELEASES CAPERNAUM This Lebanese drama won the jury prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, and is nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. It’s about a 12-year-old boy who sues his parents after he’s sentenced to jail for a violent crime. When the judge asks him why, he says “For giving me life!” Wow, that’s like the Mel Gibson Braveheart speech of teen angst. Directed by Nadine Labaki. Starring Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw and Boluwatife Treasure. (R) 126 minutes. (SP) COLD PURSUIT When I have to describe these revenge thrillers where some parent has to go after the criminals who wronged his or her family, I always say, “It’s like Taken, except with Jennifer Garner” or “It’s like Taken, except with Mel Gibson.” So what am I supposed to say about this one, where Liam Neeson plays a snowplow driver who goes after the criminals who wronged his family? “It’s like Taken, except with … Liam Neeson?” Maybe just, “It’s like Taken, except really stupid.” Directed by Hans Petter Moland. Co-starring Emmy Rossum and Laura Dern. (R) 118 minutes. (SP)

OSCAR-NOMINATED SHORTS: LIVE ACTION AND ANIMATION Reviewed this issue.

CONTINUING EVENT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES Film buffs are invited Wednesdaynights at 7 p.m. to downtown Santa Cruz, where each week the group discusses a different current release. For location and discussion topic, go to https:// groups.google.com/group/LTATM.

NOW PLAYING COLD WAR Every shot is thrilling in Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski’s follow up to Ida. This lean, fast film concerns the paradox of mid-20th century discontentment. Example: At great cost to yourself, you escape the workers’ paradise of the Soviet empire, an Eden where they tie your hands. You then arrive in capitalist heaven to face what Joni Mitchell termed “the crazy you get from too much choice.” Most of all, Cold War is a lustrous romance between a Michael Fassbinder-ish pianist, Wiktor, and the younger singer Zula, whose life is clouded by a crime she committed when she was a girl. Starring Joanna Kulig and Tomasz Kot. (R) 88 minutes. (RvB) A DOG’S WAY HOME Good lord, just one week into 2019 and we already have a damn dog movie? Forget global warming and government shutdowns—this, my friends, is proof of impending apocalypse. And Bryce Dallas Howard as the voice of the dog that has to travel hundreds of miles to find its home, are you kidding me? I don’t know what hope is even left for new dog movies to take away. Like, what’s next, a Benjiverse of interconnected dog films? Wait,

why did I just bring that idea into the world? Directed by Charles Martin Smith. Starring Jonah Hauer-King, Ashley Judd and Alexandra Shipp. (PG) 96 minutes. (SP) THE FAVOURITE Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone and especially Olivia Colman as a cranky, insecure Queen Anne are all excellent as women jockeying for power in the man’s world of early 18th-century England. But the narrative often goes awry in Yorgos Lanthimos’ witches’ brew of sex, politics and intrigue—if not historically, in terms of its weirdly comic tone. Lanthimos may be taking satirical aim at human folly—greed, ambition, depravity, especially among the oh-so-idle rich—but that’s a broad target. Too often, his contrived setups and deliberately provocative images don’t add up to anything. And as the fortunes of these women rise and fall, and viewer sympathies are meant to keep shifting, they remain little more than pawns in an exercise of mannered absurdity. (R) 131 minutes. (LJ) GLASS Let’s trace the decline of director M. Night Shyamalan through what we said over the years when we discovered the twists of his various movies: The Sixth Sense: “Whoa, he was dead this whole time?” Unbreakable: “No way, it was a comic book movie in disguise?” Signs: “Huh, so the aliens are hurt by water, but they invaded a planet that’s mostly water?” The Village: “Uh, so it’s basically just a Renaissance Faire?” The Happening: “Did I just watch the worst movie ever made?” He’s been having a career resurgence, though, with The Visit and the surprise sequel to Unbreakable, Split. Now he winds up the “comic book movie in disguise” trilogy (it’s not really much of a disguise at this point, but I’m sure there will be a twist in there) with this film that brings back Bruce Willis as David Dunn, James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb (from Split) and, of course, Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass. (PG-13) 129 minutes. (SP)

THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING I hope you’re not all King Arthur-ed out by that last Guy Ritchie version and Aquaman (which, let’s face it, was just an undersea take on the legend), because here’s yet another retelling—this time a modern-day, family-friendly fantasy with kiddos as the stars and Joe Cornish at the helm. I’m certainly not opposed to the return of the writer-director of Attack the Block, but I kind of wish that just once Hollywood would say, “On second thought, let’s not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.” Starring Rebecca Ferguson, Tom Taylor and Patrick Stewart. (PG) THE MULE Clint Eastwood apparently is a mule in this movie, which kind of makes sense, since we already know from his interviewing-a-chairat-the-RNC debacle that he can be a jackass. According to the publicity materials, it’s a true story based on the New York Times Magazine article “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule.” Ohhhh, a drug mule. I get it now. Directed by Eastwood. Co-starring Bradley Cooper, Taissa Farmiga and Laurence Fishburne. (R) 116 minutes. (SP) ON THE BASIS OF SEX If you loved RBG in RBG, you might enjoy … more RBG! This time it’s a fictionalized version of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s early career, depicting her crusade for gender equality. Directed by Mimi Leder. Starring Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer and Justin Theroux. (PG-13) 120 minutes. (SP) SERENITY Sorry, Browncoats, this has nothing at all to do with Firefly. Instead, it’s the latest in the recent trend of throwback, ’90s-style thrillers. The poster for this one even has a rip between the faces of the two stars, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway! McConaughey plays a fishing boat captain (I love this movie already) with a mysterious past (oh my god, yes) who is approached by his exwife (of course) to murder her new husband (bingo!) Give me all the tickets! Directed by Steven Knight.

Co-starring Diane Lane, Djimon Hounsou and Jason Clarke. (R) 106 minutes. (SP) SHOPLIFTERS This drama from director Hirokazu Kore-eda about a family that turns to shoplifting when they fall on hard times is about so much more than that premise suggests. I suspect it’d be cleaning up in foreign-language categories this awards season if it wasn’t for Roma. Starring Lily Franky, Sakura Ando and Miyu Matsuoka. (R) 103 minutes. (SP) STAN AND OLLIE Jon S. Baird’s biopic Stan and Ollie has a certain inflationary quality, regarding the appeal of a comedy team in their sunset years. But in lovingly recreating Laurel and Hardy’s mid-1950s tour of the UK, it’s a film with lots of charm. It doesn’t break new ground, but it has its stinging moments. When the two get into a fight about an old rift, this time Ollie’s slow burn is real, and so is Stan’s hesitant peacemaking. John Paul Kelly’s lavish production design drips with nostalgia; it can be a tad too sweet and rich for the times, but it’s more evidence that this film was a labor of love. Starring John C. Reilly, Steve Coogan and Shirley Henderson. (PG) 97 minutes. (RvB) THE UPSIDE Do you really want to watch Kevin Hart in a movie right now, after all of his exhausting apologizing/non-apologizing for his past anti-LGBTQ jokes? I know, me neither. What’s that, you didn’t really want to watch Kevin Hart in a movie anyway? Oh, you! You’re so funny. What? The Upside? Oh right, I was going to tell you about it! Your joke was so clever that I forgot all about it. Anyway, in this comedy from the director of Divergent, Hart plays an ex-con who becomes friends with a quadriplegic billionaire played by Bryan Cranston. Oh, I get it, the hands are your pillow, like you were falling asleep before I even got to the end of that sentence. You are hilarious today! Directed by Neil Burger. Starring Nicole Kidman, Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. (PG-13) 125 minutes. (SP)

THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART If you didn’t have very small children at the time, you were probably surprised at how much you were delighted by the first Lego Movie’s irresistible charm and wit. If you did have very small children, you were probably unsurprised at how much you were delighted by the first Lego Movie’s ability to hold your kid’s attention so you could close your goddamn eyes for one goddamn minute. Well, now the sequel is here to provide the same tender mercies for a new generation of new parents about to lose their shit. Everything is awesome! Directed by Mike Mitchell. Featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks and Will Arnett. But not Mel Gibson. (PG) 106 minutes. (SP)

WHAT MEN WANT Yes, this is a remake of the Mel Gibson movie What Women Want from 19 years ago. Yes, they flipped the gender roles, so that this time Taraji P. Henson can hear men’s thoughts. I think that’s great, as long as we don’t have to find out what Mel Gibson secretly wants, because I guarantee you it is terrifying. Directed by Adam Shankman. Costarring Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge and Richard Roundtree. (R) 117 minutes. (SP)

FOOD & DRINK home behind the eclectic front counter. Posters still cover the cabinet wall beside the condiment table. And regulars still stash their favorite mugs on a high shelf. In the larger room, mismatched couches offer old-school coziness for interviews, meetings and just hunkering down for a morning coffee. Not designer, but not generic, the old footprint—brick floors, wainscotted walls—provides a funky elegance that is pure, 100 percent Santa Cruz. A large assortment of bagels and toppings, plus an array of inviting quiches and soups, make it a great lunch option, as well as a morning caffeine mainstay. A good Wi-Fi connection, too. Tabby Cat Cafe, 1101 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. Soft opening hours 7 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekends.

Tabby Cat Cafe curls up in downtown Santa Cruz’s former Cafe Bene BY CHRISTINA WATERS

I

f you felt at home in the retro living room ambience of Cafe Bene for all those years, then you’ll love the coffee house’s reincarnation as Tabby Cat Cafe, which was opened a few weeks ago by former Bene barista Lisa Curran and Jeb Purucker. The ambience is matchless, the coffee is exceptional, and I might even be willing to say that the macchiato I had at T-Cat this week was the best I’ve had in Santa Cruz. Strong, smooth, without bitterness, and served in a beautiful miniature coffee mug. Light floods the vintage space,

lending the front alcoves and main reading room a welcoming vibe. I once wrote film reviews in an office above Tabby Cat, and have fond memories of this location, close to downtown yet tucked away from the crowds. We ordered a macchiato and a regular house blend coffee, plus one of those cranberry scones from Black China Bakery that I always loved when I visited in the past, then took a seat at a corner table marked “Reserved” for the Santa Cruz French club. We would be gone before their meeting time. We glanced at the newspapers and

watched the large-scale industrial action across the street while awaiting our coffees. As regulars came in—and it seems that Tabby has inherited a full roster of fans from the previous administration— they were personally greeted. It feels like you’ve entered the front parlor of a private home, calm and mellow. The atmosphere is a welcome alternative to the hipster frenzy of many other downtown coffee spots. Conversations are possible, and so is reading and writing—those arts from the preiPhone era. The new owners are clearly at

I met new Ristorante Avanti co-owner Jonathan Glass last week at my first lunch since a change in the ownership lineup. Now we can look forward to a special sandwich and a burger added to the lunch menu. Last week, it was a robust version of the East Coast Italian meatball sandwich. Rita and I loved our beautiful plate (new plates, too!) of seared scallops with crisp roast potatoes and arugula salad. The lunch scene looks, and tastes, familiar. Updates are already underway, with ergonomic new chairs and patio dining enhancements. Wishing Jonathan and Tatiana Glass good luck with their Westside venture.

PACIFIC SOUL Chad Glassley plans to open a third Cajun spot under the Roux Dat moniker in Abbott Square. PHOTO: JULES HOLDSWORTH

Roux Dat

Running a mini-restaurant is trickier than it seems BY JACOB PIERCE

hen Chad Glassley moved to town in 2013 with ambitions of opening a Cajun restaurant, he originally set his sights on one of the kiosks along downtown Santa Cruz’s Pacific Avenue. When that didn’t work out, he and wife Aurelia, an Aptos High School grad, simply opened a fastcasual restaurant called Roux Dat in Capitola instead. Then, last year, their original plan came to fruition, when they signed the lease on a kiosk outside Bookshop Santa Cruz for Roux Dat’s second location. But running a small-scale version of the joint is trickier than Glassley had originally imagined, partially because he has to keep it stocked by trucking over stews from the Capitola location. He figures the logistics will get easier once the restaurant opens a third branch in a couple of months at Abbott Square, just off of Pacific.

OK, so jambalaya or gumbo? CHAD GLASSLEY: Both, just because they are very different stews. Do rice in the middle, and I would do jambalaya on one half and gumbo on the other. It’s fun to compare.

Fried pickles or fried green tomatoes? I like fried green tomatoes better, because there’s a little more substance, and I like the tartness. It’s almost like a green apple.

Why is it so hard to find places that serve alligator? There was a ban for a while in the state of California, and then it got lifted. But it was mainly just for clothing, for boots and belts and things like that. We get our alligator from Louisiana, so we are pretty far away, and the price can get high, so maybe people don’t stock it. But we always find it’s a nice little surprise: “Really, you have gator on your menu?”

Mardi Gras is March 5. Any plans? We might do a couple Mardi Gras beer specials. We’ve got the Mardi Gras Bock on tap from Abita. We always look into doing a crawfish boil, but everyone wants crawfish at that time, and again, like alligator, the West Coast gets left out because it takes a while to ship out here. rouxdatcajuncreole.com, 295-6372.

ith Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a sensuous Zin is a perfect pick to share with your sweetie— or keep for yourself. Either way, Pelican Ranch Winery’s Capitola tasting room is the place to go. Their 2015 Zinfandel ($24) is made with fruit from the Rinaldi Family Vineyard in Fiddletown, Amador County, and loaded with pepper, spice, herbs, and smoke. “It’s good alone and wonderful with fullbodied foods,” likely a hearty pizza packed with meat toppings, says winemaker Phil Crews, who co-owns Pelican Ranch Winery with his wife, Peggy. And Crews should know; the tasting room has a pizza oven that he often fires up for customers. A professor of chemistry at UCSC, Crews says Pelican’s classic, bigstyle Zin has a powerful structure of berry and jam, which unite in a symphony of sustained flavors (a 2016 batch was also just released). Another hot buy for your Valentine would be Pelican Ranch’s Raspberry Dessert Wine. “Its incredible structure and jammy wild berries demand chocolate accompaniment,” Crews says.

H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES THE FESTIVAL OF LOSAR Losar (the Tibetan word for “new year”) is an ancient new year’s festival predating Buddhism and celebrated in Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, and India. It begins on the first day of the lunisolar Tibetan calendar (Feb. 5) and lasts for 15 days. Like Chinese New Year, 2019 is the year of the yin (female) earth pig or boar. Losar is a fragment of the winter-incense-burning custom of the ancient Bon religion (8th century), when the people of Tibet gathered at a spring and made offerings to Naga (water spirits), a ritual of gratitude to the water element/spirits. At Dharamshala (Dalai Lama’s palace in India) during Losar, the Dalai Lama consults the Oracle, a trained medium able to communicate with spirits and see the past, present and future. The Oracle is responsible for the health, healing

and protection of the Dalai Lama. The rite of the Oracle is ancient, and involves detailed preparation of evocative invocations (responses), fanfare, dance, sounds, drums, horns, mudras and mantras. In Tibetan homes during Losar, flowers decorate the rooms, walls are painted with sun, moon and the wheel of life symbols. Cedar and juniper branches burn for incense. Debts are settled, quarrels resolved, new clothes acquired, and special foods (kapse—sweet bread, shaped into twists) and drink (chang—barley beer) are offered. In the fields, peach trees are beginning to bloom. Before the measurement of time, the people knew it was Losar when the peach trees budded. Tashi Delek (Tibetan for happy new year) everyone.

ARIES Mar21–Apr20

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22

Recognizing the vital and initiating work you are to bring forth, it’s time to learn how to participate in groups with intelligent and heartfelt cooperation. You are to help fashion part of the new era, culture and civilization. Are you aware of this? Are you conscious of the needs of humanity? You’re called to awaken again for the time when those who plan and lead boldly, take risks and see into the future. Working with both heart and mind, you will be summoned. Prepare.

Although, under the veil of Libra’s charm, you are a strong and powerful force, a greater level of love/wisdom must begin expressing itself through you. It begins with acceptance and gratitude for everyone and everything (small and great, childhood to present) that has occurred in your life. Here is your new mantra to recite unceasingly: “Love expresses itself through me always, and wisdom follows.” Then your life and relationships proceed with protective love and healing care.

Esoteric Astrology as news for week of Feb. 6, 2019

TAURUS Apr21–May21 The architecture of your participation in life is changing. Previously you dreamed big dreams and pondered many realities, not concerned if anything took shape. Now you’re competently leading boards and groups, preparing the components of the new world era. Taurus has an enlightened mind that can see humanity’s present/future needs. You know that in a breakdown phase, seeds of the new must be sowed. You’re synthesizing all realities so others can understand.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

Many forces are at work in your life. As a Gemini, you always attempt to resolve polarities—higher/lower, here/ there, light/dark, self/others, soul/personality. This is a vital and difficult task accomplished by the proper cultivation of the mind principle (calming the emotions) and the right course of study that allows no illusions, distortions, confusions or maya. So you can walk the Path with others. Aquarius calls you to develop all seven levels of your mind. The Soul is on the mental plane.

You should have a very good year. Especially if you blend two realities—your personality and soul. This produces harmony for a time. Then the soul leaves and divine will enters, and your personality harmonizes with will. Not easy. Will is a fire. Your career rises and falls and sometimes makes a big splash. In these ups and downs, always be thoughtful, or you will lose much. Remember each day that “wisdom is knowledge gained through experience and implemented by love.”

Always we feel some form of conflict. Know that conflict and chaos are useful. They give us the ability to observe tensions and to express hurts, needs and fears. For some, there is a great battle going on between the soul and personality. The soul calls us to right relations, right action and right service. Many times, we don’t know what these words mean. Ask the soul. The answers will be released into your mind. When asking, we always receive.

LE0 Jul21–Aug22 Relationships are vitally important at this time, so often you feel disconnected to anything or anyone. You’re in a place of balancing and choosing, an interlude state. Your inner beliefs about relationships and how you function in them are being modified so that you can display right relationships while still expressing your unique creativity. Allow opposing forces to flow through you. A greater awareness then emerges. Love flows unobstructed once more. Love is your gift.

Notice times of solitude when you think things great and small. Create an environment that nurtures in all ways the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of yourself. Be in touch with the kingdoms—mineral, plant, animal, human, Soul. Love must be combined with your great intelligence. This will form a foundation for the new life emerging all around you. It begins where you live. Later you’ll be asked to explain this time to others.

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20 Whatever it is you hope for, radiate it with love from your Ajna (third eye) center. This is where a diamond light of direction streams forth. Then new life takes root expressed as harmony, beauty and peace (a process). Your love eases any disharmony and conflict whenever it arises. You remember that harmony always attempts to emerge through conflict and chaos, yes? Harmony is the shadow of the object.

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18 This year, you have great energy and potential. As new sources of income and ways of living are sought, be sure to control impatience. If you’re not aware, you could be thought of as thoughtless toward others. Remember to be courteous and kind, and show sympathy to those who have less than you. A new self-identity continues to emerge. Be sure it includes goodness, generosity and love. We experience that which we offer others.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22

PISCES Feb19–Mar20

New revelations stream into your mind concerning how to order and organize daily life. How we function in daily life prepares us for the new dimensions and structures slowly emerging in the new Aquarian era. Receive with devotion and acceptance all new ideas impressed upon your mind. Be aware if pain or remembrances or weariness occur. As you ponder upon these things, your perspectives shift, change and are uplifted.

You have begun the arduous task of observing, noting and understanding feelings, thoughts, aspirations, actions, and vulnerabilities. Much of your life has been treading the pathway of service and sacrifice. A new beneficent cycle has begun, expanding your courage and strength of character. This may not be acceptable to some. Maintain privacy, walk away from disharmony, don’t believe criticism. The stars protect you.

Meantime, lesser mortals at Real Estate of Mind are working on that other most inevitable thing - taxes. More specifically, real estate taxes. Something so many people around the age of 55 are thinking hard about as they head into the last third of their lives wrestling with questions about downsizing, cash flow and leaving legacies for their kids. Here’s a quick cheat sheet (reference guide, not an actual suggestion for cheating on your taxes,) for those trying to figure out how to avoid substantial increases in their property taxes if they sell their house and buy another one somewhere else in California. The good news? California seems to be dedicated to the “proposition” that all people should try to avoid more taxes when possible. Here are some of those propositions: Prop 13 (1978): The original granddaddy proposition reducing existing property taxes and significantly limiting increases in the future. Prop 58 (1986): Allows parents to pass homes on to their children without a reassessment of property taxes. (See the fine print, folks.) Prop 60 (1986): Offers homeowners the opportunity to sell and buy a new home (of lesser value) in the same County, while transferring a lower property tax base. (Not to be confused with the other, more recent Prop 60 having to do with condom use in the porn industry!!!) Prop 90 (1989): Allows homeowners to transfer their existing property tax base to other participating counties in California. Only 11 counties currently qualify. (Call or email for the list.)

Advertise Your Open House!

Deliver Good Times early each Wednesday morning. Reliability and some flexibility with delivery time is needed.

Prop 193 (1996): Extension of Prop 58 allowing grandparents to transfer property to grandchildren (provided their children are deceased) without reassessment of property taxes.

Special Rates Available

FOR DETAILS, CONTACT: SHANNEN CRAIG SHANNEN@GOODTIMES.SC

In the meantime, while continuing our quest to cheat both death (via Google) and taxes (via Proposition), I invite any and all of you who are wrestling with the numbers to give me a call to discuss how these Propositions can assist in your planning.

Call your sales rep for details 458.1100

Prop 110 (1990): Extended Prop 60 to disabled homeowners of any age.

Provoking thought since 1990 Death and Taxes. Everyone’s heard those words. They’re part of a quote that originated with Benjamin Franklin: “Our new Constitution is now established and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Here we are more than 240 years after Ben made his pithy observation. A lot has changed since then but as of today’s Good Times, death is still at the top of the short list of inevitable facts we all have to face. (Until Google achieves The Singularity and starts transforming brain waves into algorithms uploaded into the cloud so we can live forever.)

BUTTER-BASTED WINE & FOOD PAIRING “SWEETHEART” STEAKS Halfway through cooking, these butterflied heart shaped rib steaks are basted with a mixture of butter, thyme and garlic, so they’re crusty outside and richly flavored.

Ingredients:

Two 1-1/4 pound, bone-in rib eye steaks Kosher salt Freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons canola oil 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 4 thyme sprigs 3 garlic cloves 1 rosemary sprig

LUNCH MEATS

Delicatessen

FISH

Season the rib eye steaks all over with salt and freshly ground pepper. Let the meat stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2: In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the canola oil until shimmering. Add the steaks and cook over high heat until crusty on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn the steaks and add the butter, thyme, garlic and rosemary to the skillet. Cook over high heat, basting the steaks with the melted butter, garlic and herbs, until the steaks are medium-rare, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut the steaks off the bone, then slice the meat across the grain and serve.

RON: The realtor who sold us our house recommended Shopper’s.We’re still shopping here.” MARGIE:“My first impression was that Shopper’s reminded me of these markets we’d seen in New York: compact, wellorganized and with wooden floors, and they all had a butcher department.” RON:“Shopper’s is important to the community because it’s local and just a great store.” MARGIE:“And it’s family-oriented.The Beauregards care about what goes on in the market and it shows. It’s so well run.” RON:“Family-run makes a big difference in the products Shopper’s carries and how customers are treated.”

What do you folks like to cook? RON:“Mostly Italian and Mexican dishes. I do a lot of enchiladas with anything, and that includes a wide variety of vegetables.” MARGIE:“I consider myself adventurous in the kitchen and I like to cook in season. I may do Japanese, Chinese, Indian — you name it. I really appreciate Shopper’s specialty products, as well as their quality baking flours and other ingredients.” RON:“We really like that so much of Shopper’s produce is local.” MARGIE:“And so much is organic. Shopper’s carries a lot of organic foods these days.” RON:“The produce is priced well, actually everything is for what you get.” MARGIE:“That’s saying a lot!”

What do you mean? MARGIE:“He’s known as ‘Mr Frugal!’” RON:“I don’t really shop price but I know that everything here is quality.” MARGIE:“Shopper’s carries a lot of unusual specialty products. I’m not afraid to experiment because I can trust Shopper’s.” RON:“I like spending my money here, and the customer service —butchers, checkers — is very good.” MARGIE:“There are always so many checkers available and baggers to carry out your groceries.The butchers are great with suggestions.And they remember what we ordered and may ask how it turned out.” RON:“Don’t forget you get free pens and notepads.” MARGIE:“We have so many!”

“There are always so many checkers available and baggers to carry out your groceries. And the butchers are great with suggestions!”
