OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE When we do profiles, we get to meet a lot of new people and introduce them to readers—and that’s one of the best things about this job. But it was fun this week to write a cover story about two people I’ve known for a long time. One of them is Joe Sib, who I’ve been writing about for about a decade now. I don’t mean to keep writing about the guy; it’s just that every time he takes on a new project, it’s something really interesting, and with his roots in Santa Cruz and San Jose, it always seems relevant to us. I’ve ended up kind of charting the history of his career over time, which has been a

WHO WOULDN’T BE DISTURBED?

I know from past experiences that you will not act like a real newspaper and publish letters about, or corrections to, your news stories, so just take this as feedback regarding your reporter’s lousy (intentionally biased?) work. The recent piece (GT, 2/6) with the two-page picture of the SC City Council and regarding the left/right schism on the council missed the key factor of the entire issue! Yes, as described, Councilmember Glover was disturbed that his agenda items were refused by Mayor Watkins because they missed the deadline. But the true story would certainly be that the deadline was moved by the Mayor—without notice! Should Glover not be disturbed by this action? Is the Good Times OK with this misreporting? I am certainly not OK with this latest of several breeches of responsible journalism and will not knowingly patronize any advertiser of such a publication as well as encouraging others to do the same! You have a responsibility to your readers and advertisers, and are failing in it badly! FRED J. GEIGER | SANTA CRUZ

blast, because dropping yourself into Joe Sib’s world is never boring. The second one is DNA, who I’ve known for years both as a local comedian and as a contributor to GT. As with Sib, it’s been kind of amazing to see DNA grow as an artist over the years—especially, for me, his evolution as a writer. I remember reading his GT cover story that ran at the beginning of 2018 about his memories of following the Grateful Dead, and marveling at how he’s learned to let his personality come through in his funny, bemused writing style—which is a totally different art to master than doing so on stage. I’m thrilled he’s opening DNA’s Comedy Lab and Experimental Theatre, and I hope you enjoy reading about how Sib’s and DNA’s paths have come together for the opening of the new venue.

CLOAKING DEVICE Thank you for last week’s GT article “Does Santa Cruz Have a Bullying Problem?,” which discussed the growing claims of harassment online, at City Hall, and during council meetings by Council members Drew Glover and Christopher Krohn. Krohn, to his credit, offered an apology for his behavior and seemed to indicate a willingness to learn and change. Glover, on the other hand, doubled down. To defend himself, Glover, a self-described “avowed feminist,” pointed to his service on the Commission for Prevention of Violence Against Women as evidence of his feminism. But women know feminism isn’t a moniker someone can claim simply by sitting on a Commission. Feminism is evidenced by one’s actions, policies and especially how a person treats women publicly. Unfortunately, there seems to be a pattern emerging of verbal abuse and harassment from Glover. So far from this article, we have learned that the mayor, a current council member and three women who protested Glover’s appointment to the CPVAW have all claimed some form of harassment. This doesn’t sound like the actions of a feminist to me. It is not good enough for Glover, and Krohn as well, to cloak themselves in the principles of

Santa Cruz’s Loch Lomond Recreation Area reopened for public use after the end of its regularly scheduled seasonal closure, which lasts from October through February. The city’s water department operates Loch Lomond, a reservoir for drinking water serving 96,000 households. The recreation area is home to a range of activities, including boat rentals, picnicking, fishing, and hiking. Hours for the recreation area in the month of March are 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

Santa Cruz youth concerned with global warming have an opportunity to make their voices heard. On the afternoon of Friday, March 15, they’ll meet at the clock tower, joining the worldwide Youth Climate Strikes. Students from the elementary school level all the way up through UCSC take inspiration from Swedish 15-year-old Greta Thunberg, who protested alone for weeks before students around the world began emulating her actions.

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of March 13 ARIES Mar21–Apr19

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22

The coming weeks might be a good time to acquire a flamethrower. It would come in handy if you felt the urge to go to a beach and incinerate mementos from an ex-ally. It would also be useful if you wanted to burn stuff that reminds you of who you used to be and don’t want to be any more; or if you got in the mood to set ablaze symbols of questionable ideas you used to believe in but can’t afford to believe in any more. If you don’t want to spend $1,600-plus on a flamethrower, just close your eyes for 10 minutes and visualize yourself performing acts of creative destruction like those I mentioned.

“The role of the artist is exactly the same as the role of the lover,” wrote author James Baldwin. “If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you don’t see.” To fully endorse that statement, I’d need to add two adverbs. My version would be, “The role of the artist is exactly the same as the role of the lover. If I love you, I have to kindly and compassionately make you conscious of the things you don’t see.” In accordance with current astrological omens, I recommend that you Libras enthusiastically adopt that mission during the coming weeks. With tenderness and care, help those you care about become aware of what they’ve been missing—and ask for the same from them toward you.

TAURUS Apr20–May20 Taurus aphorist Olivia Dresher writes that she would like to be “a force of nature,” but “not causing any suffering.” The way I interpret her longing is that she wants to be wild, elemental, uninhibited, primal, raw, pure—all the while without inflicting any hurt or damage on herself or anyone else. In accordance with your astrological omens, Taurus, that’s a state I encourage you to embody in the coming weeks. If you’re feeling extra smart—which I suspect you will—you could go even further. You may be able to heal yourself and others with your wild, elemental, uninhibited, primal, raw, pure energy.

GEMINI May21–June20 In some major cities, the buttons you push at a crosswalk don’t actually work to make the traffic light turn green faster. The same is true about the “Close Door” buttons in many elevators. Pushing them doesn’t have any effect on the door. Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer says these buttons are like placebos that give you “the illusion of control.” I bring this phenomenon to your attention, Gemini, in hope of inspiring you to scout around for comparable things in your life. Is there any situation where you imagine you have power or influence, but probably don’t? If so, now is an excellent time to find out—and remedy that problem.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22 Philip Boit was born and raised in Kenya, where it never snows except on the very top of Mount Kenya. Yet he represented his country in the cross-country skiing events at the Winter Olympics in 2002 and 2006. How did he do it? He trained up north in snowy Finland. Meanwhile, Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong competed for Ghana in the slalom in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Since there was no snow in his homeland, he practiced his skills in the French Alps. These two are your role models for the coming months, Cancerian. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you’ll have the potential to achieve success in tasks and activities that may not seem like a natural fit.

In the process of casting for his movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, director David Fincher considered selecting A-list actress Scarlett Johansson to play the heroine. But ultimately he decided she was too sexy and radiant. He wanted a pale, thin, tougher-looking actress, whom he found in Rooney Mara. I suspect that in a somewhat similar way, you may be perceived as being too much something for a role you would actually perform quite well. But in my astrological opinion, you’re not at all too much. In fact, you’re just right. Is there anything you can do—with full integrity—to adjust how people see you and understand you without diluting your brightness and strength?

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 In 1993, an English gardener named Eric Lawes used his metal detector to look for a hammer that his farmer friend had lost in a field. Instead of the hammer, he found the unexpected: a buried box containing 15,234 old Roman silver and gold worth more than $4 million today. I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because I suspect that you, too, will soon discover something different from what you’re searching for. Like the treasure Lawes located, it might even be more valuable than what you thought you wanted.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 For thousands of generations, our early ancestors were able to get some of the food they needed through a practice known as persistence hunting. They usually couldn’t run as fast as the animals they chased. But they had a distinct advantage: they could keep moving relentlessly until their prey grew exhausted. In part, that’s because they had far less hair than the animals, and thus could cool off better. I propose that we adopt this theme as a metaphor for your life in the coming weeks and months. You won’t need to be extra fast or super ferocious or impossibly clever to get what you want. All you have to do is be persistent and dogged and disciplined.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 Wompsi’kuk Skeesucks Brooke is a Native American woman of the Mohegan tribe. According to her description of Mohegan naming traditions, and reported by author Elisabeth Pearson Waugaman, “Children receive names that are descriptive. They may be given new names at adolescence, and again as they go through life according to what their life experiences and accomplishments are.” She concludes that names “change as the individual changes.” If you have been thinking about transforming the way you express and present yourself, you might want to consider such a shift. This year will be a favorable time to at least add a new nickname or title. And I suspect you’ll have maximum inspiration to do so in the coming weeks.

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 For many of us, smell is our most neglected sense. We see, hear, taste, and feel with vividness and eagerness, but allow our olfactory powers to go underused. In accordance with astrological omens, I hope you will compensate for that dearth in the coming weeks. There is subtle information you can obtain—and in my opinion, need quite strongly—that will come your way only with the help of your nose. Trust the guidance provided by scent.

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 Essayist Nassim Nicholas Taleb says humans come in three types: fragile, robust or antifragile. Those who are fragile work hard to shield themselves from life’s messiness. The downside? They are deprived of experiences that might spur them to grow smarter. As for robust people, Taleb believes they are firm in the face of messiness. They remain who they are even when they’re disrupted. The potential problem? They may be too strong to surrender to necessary transformations. If you’re the third type, antifragile, you engage with the messiness and use it as motivation to become more creative and resilient. The downside? None. In accordance with the astrological omens, Aquarius, I urge you to adopt the antifragile approach in the coming weeks.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 In 2014, NASA managed to place its Maven spacecraft into orbit around Mars. The cost of the mission was $671 million. Soon thereafter, the Indian government put its own vehicle, the Mangalyaan, into orbit around the Red Planet, spending just $74 million. As you plan your own big project, Pisces, I recommend you emulate the Mangalyaan rather than the Maven. I suspect you can do great things— maybe even your personal equivalent of sending a spacecraft to Mars—on a relatively modest budget.

Homework: Upon waking up for the next seven mornings, sing a song that fills you with feisty, glorious hope.

ONLINE COMMENTS Re: Bullying: As a democratic socialist, anti-racist feminist I’m disgusted to see Watkins play the poor, weak white woman act when her pro-landlord, pro-rich politics get challenged by a black man. I’ve heard way worse from the likes of Rich Boy Ryan Coonerty and Mike Rotkin, but they get a

pass because they’re white. We need more real democratic socialists like Glover and Krohn. Sometimes people with great policy positions are women of color like AOC, sometimes they are white boys like Bernie Sanders. Regardless of their demographics, we need more of them and fewer pearlclutching defenders of sky-high, racist rent costs like Mayor Watkins. - CECILY TAYLOR

NEWS FOOT FORWARD After 22-year-old pedestrian’s death on Highway 9, activists press transportation experts to walk the walk BY JACOB PIERCE

EVOLUTION OF AN ACTIVIST With his wife Shannon, Carson Kelly founded Santa Cruz Indivisible, the local chapter of an

Requiem for Passivism Santa Cruz Indivisible’s Carson Kelly on shifting activist strategies and the state of the resistance BY WALLACE BAINE

U

ntil 2016, Carson Kelly was a lot like most people he knew in Santa Cruz. He had a family, a full-time job, a life that didn’t allow much time for boredom or idleness. He thought of himself as politically engaged, if you count bookmarking FiveThirtyEight.com being “engaged.” But he was less a political activist than he was a political “passivist,” to coin a term. That changed dramatically with the election of Donald Trump to the presidency. In short order, Kelly and his wife Shannon founded Santa

Cruz Indivisible, the local chapter of an activist group inspired by the Indivisible Guide, a 26-page Google doc created by a handful of congressional staffers shortly after the election that outlined practical advice for a progressive resistance movement against Trump and the Republican Party. Back in the days following the Trump inauguration, Kelly was upfront about his inexperience and his uncertainty in the political arena. “You go blindly into the fog swinging your sword hoping you’ll hit something,” he said at the time.

Fast-forward two years later, to the winter of 2019 and the arrival of the 116th U.S. Congress. Kelly watched in wonder as the newly elected congressional representatives were sworn in, but he felt particular satisfaction when he saw Democrat T.J. Cox walk down the aisle. Cox was the challenger against Republican incumbent David Valadao for the seat representing California’s 21st district, which covers a vast area of the San Joaquin Valley, just to the east of the 20th district that includes the communities of the Monterey Bay. Santa Cruz Indivisible was >12

Kelley Howard remembers her son Josh as “just so full of life.” Josh was killed on Highway 9 on the night of Thursday, Feb. 21, while walking along the narrow shoulder after working a shift at Castelli's Deli Café. He was heading to his mom’s home in Henry Cowell Redwood State Park. That’s where Kelley, a park ranger who thought of Josh as her “best friend,” was eagerly awaiting his company. “He’s the happiest person I know. I’m not that happy. In his 22 years, he was happier than I’ve been in 40,” Kelley says. The collision, which is under investigation, happened on a stretch of highway slated for future improvements outlined in the county transportation commission’s “Draft Highway 9 San Lorenzo Valley Complete Streets Corridor Plan.” Residents of the surrounding San Lorenzo Valley want to see those improvements as soon as possible. A petition in Josh’s honor urging action on this ribbon of road has garnered more than 1,200 signatures. Assemblymember Mark Stone says in a statement that Caltrans, the state’s transportation office, argues too often that safety improvements must be justified by sufficient accident statistics. “One death is too many,” he states. “Caltrans should prioritize bike and pedestrian safety on Highway 9 and on other state highways that serve as surface streets for a community.” Stone says his office is working with stakeholders and Caltrans to identify funding sources to improve safety on the highway, which serves as the main street through the San Lorenzo Valley. Congressmember Anna Eshoo says, in a statement, that she met with county officials last week to talk about road improvements in light of the county’s infrastructure needs after winter storms, and about Highway 9 improvements. Caltrans spokesperson Susana Cruz says that the department takes highway safety very seriously and is funding the Highway 9 plan, which is expected to be finished by the summer and could >14

NEWS REQUIEM FOR PASSIVISM <11 among several progressive activist groups that sent volunteers to the neighboring 21st district to canvas door-to-door in hopes of flipping the seat from red to blue. On election night, media outlets called the race in favor of the incumbent Valadao. But in the following weeks, the vote tally tightened, and when the last ballot was counted, Cox came out ahead by a little more than 800 votes—less than 1 percent of the total vote count. “It was pretty amazing,” says Kelly, “We made a real difference. If Santa Cruz Indivisible had not done our work, and other groups had not done their work, it probably would

not have happened the way it did.” The outcome of the other targeted district, the 22nd, wasn’t as satisfying for Santa Cruz Indivisible. In that race, Republican incumbent Devin Nunes, who rose to national fame as the Trump-friendly chair of House Intelligence Committee, won decisively over his Democratic challenger. “We didn’t get that one,” says Kelly of the Nunes seat. “But we’ll get him in 2020.” Seven seats flipped in California from Republican to Democrat. Nunes is now one of only seven Republicans left in California’s 53 congressional districts. Of the wins that allowed the Democratic Party to take control of the House, Kelly says, “My opinion

of it, it was not the Democratic Party that did that. It was progressive grassroots organizations who did that. In some cases, it happened despite the Democratic Party.” Post-2018, Kelly is a passivist no longer. As a sudden local political leader, he is now reflecting on the lessons the past two years have taught him about how political change happens. When Santa Cruz Indivisible first formed, he says, the group “was just fighting, resisting the craziness that was coming from Donald Trump.” But the former UCSC philosophy student began to see broader themes that went beyond the day’s headlines. He began to understand that the group’s first order of business was to make people aware of >16

NUZ BUFFERED Most of what Nuz knows about tech, we learned in 2006 from former U.S. Senator Ted “the internet is a series of tubes” Stevens. In the intervening years, Nuz discovered that the worldwide web wasn’t made up of “tubes” so much as it was “modems” and “routers” and “networks” and a bunch of other stuff, which is around the the time we fell asleep in digital literacy class. Now there are even more terms to keep up with. Not long ago, installation of Cruzio’s privately funded local gigabit fiber network, which GT has covered (“The Gig Is Up,” 12/26/19), sounded like it was soaring through to completion. Even the El Rio Mobile Home Park has high-speed internet, we reported! And in a localoriented town like Santa Cruz, why wouldn’t potential customers be tripping over one another to sign up for a service that sticks it to corporate giants and is offered by a local company—especially if it also means having faster internet? The full picture on the plan’s

progress, we’ve learned, isn’t bleak, but it might not be the stuff of utopian science fiction, either. The latest word from James Hackett, Cruzio’s business operations and development director, is that the company has about 350 customers signed up. About half of those customers currently have fiber, he says, and the rest are scheduled to be connected by this summer. The signups amount to less than 30 percent of the 1,200 properties that have access to the faster internet speeds. It takes a 30-50 percent sign-up rate of people in a fiber area for it to really start paying off from a business standpoint, given the high up-front costs of laying fiber lines underground. Maybe there will be a domino effect in signups as word gets out about upload and download speeds taking a leap forward. The original plan, three years ago, was to build a much bigger fiber network via a public-private partnership with the city of Santa Cruz that would have extended service to every resident by 2018, but talks fell apart. Given the somewhat

lackluster response so far, Cruzio has a few options for its next strategic steps, including using wireless technology to extend the geographic area where they offer gigabit speeds. And the company’s exploring an extension of crazy-fast internet to other mobile home parks. For all the talk about fiber’s speed, though, the actual installation process may be anything but.

TWITTERED AWAY Local Santa Cruz Twitter isn’t doing so well, and there isn’t much local about it anymore. There was a time when Nuz could check Twitter to find out what was happening on the Central Coast. It would tell us what our followees had tweeted over the last few minutes, filling our noggins with up-to-date new information. But after Twitter’s algorithmic changes in recent years, Nuz’s feed is now a deluge of the week’s most popular mini-screeds nationwide—hot takes on jaded statistical analysis

about basketball, lukewarm takes on President Trump and cold, calculated dispatches of self-promotion. Gone are the days when the most recent tweets would be waiting for us in chronological order to fill our brain with the latest intel. Instead, here is a funny joke about Republican hypocrisy from three days ago! Don’t get us wrong: Social media has long been something of a dumpster fire, depending on what lens you’re looking through. In Nuz’s thorough online research (most of it conducted after 3 a.m.), we found that Facebook made us hate ourselves; Twitter made us hate the world. We preferred Twitter. But these days, with few exceptions, the local Twitter users who were once worth following are now tweeting less—presumably because their insights seldom gain traction under the algorithms. And as if trying to fill that void, the tweeters who can never get anyone to listen to them in real life are tweeting more than ever. #lame P.S. follow us on Twitter!

MEMORY LANE Those who knew Josh Howard, who was killed walking down Highway 9 last month, remember him for his kind spirit and warm smile.

offer an initial roadmap for spending. “Once this report is complete, it should shine a light on what the community priorities are,” she says. In December, Caltrans approved Highway Safety Improvement Program funds for pedestrian crossings on Highway 9, including flashing lights to increase visibility for existing crossings. The California Highway Patrol is still investigating the cause of the collision and death, although Kelley says that an officer told her they believed that the driver crossed over the white line into the narrow shoulder area where pedestrians walk. The Highway 9 plan identifies 28 projects, and the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) prioritized four projects as most important—all of them on the stretch of highway between downtown Ben Lomond and downtown Felton, including the area around San Lorenzo Valley’s three public schools and the road near the intersection of Graham Hill Road, where Josh was struck.

Earlier in February, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) discussed the Highway 9 plan, and Felton transportation advocate Brian Largay mentioned the stretch where Josh would die two weeks later. Largay asked commissioners to picture themselves walking along a retaining wall, their shoulders brushing against it, as cars rushed past at arm’s length. “A child making that walk every day will get the impression that this system doesn’t value them very much,” Largay said.

STEERING COMMITTEE Josh’s full legal name was Josh Jaumouille-Howard, although Kelley says that everyone knew him as simply Josh Howard. The petition in his honor, started by another San Lorenzo Valley resident, calls for the highway where Josh died to be dedicated to him. Kelley says that specific detail isn’t important to her, although she would be open to the idea, especially if it reminds other young pedestrians to be extremely careful when they’re walking on the shoulder. The

main thing she wants is to know is when projects will break ground. “I want actual dates,” she says. “This could take years. How many people are going to get hurt or die?” RTC Senior Transportation Planner Rachel Moriconi says the first step is securing money. The $10 million from Measure D, approved by voters in 2016, is a start, but a primary source of funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects is the state’s Active Transportation Program. The program is popular, and fuel-efficient vehicles have eroded the gas-tax revenue that pays for it. Last year, requests for the funding were five times higher than available funds, Moriconi explains. The state’s 2017 S.B. 1 provided some additional funding to address some of the backlog of transportation need, she says. But the state, she says, needs a longer-term fix to replace the gas tax with more stable funding. The county Department of Public Works, Moriconi notes, would be the lead agency in constructing any improvements to Highway 9.

PASSENGER SIZED Pedestrian safety is more than just a Felton issue. A new study has found that pedestrian deaths are approaching a 30-year high. Some of that increase can be attributed to population growth. Other contributing problems include alcohol use, speeding, unsafe infrastructure, the prevalence of SUVs, and distractions on behalf of both pedestrians and drivers. In the city of Watsonville, leaders are so troubled by the trend that they’ve signed onto a Vision Zero initiative to aim for eliminating pedestrian deaths by 2030. Joni Martin, who started the petition for Josh, says that after the accident, she couldn’t get Josh and Kelley off her mind. Her kids have walked that same stretch of Highway 9 many times, and she remembers being involved in efforts 11 years ago to try and start momentum to build badly needed bike and pedestrian infrastructure in the San Lorenzo Valley. “It’s so devastating that it took this for 1,200 people to say, ‘Yes, let’s do this now,’” says Martin, whose daughter went to school with Josh. “Let’s get this done for real.”

their own power as citizens. Only then could they exercise that power in the midterm elections. Now that that power has been established in Congress, Indivisible’s next step is to effectively advocate for change. Progressive movements, however, have always been vulnerable to factionalism and division, and Kelly has given a lot of thought to how to stay united in the face of unified opposition. “I’m trying my best as part of the core leadership to avoid an environment where schisms are going to arise.” How is he doing that? By making distinctions between “values” and “issues,” he says. “We have to be in the business of being unified on the values front, though not necessarily on the issues front,” he says. “We’ve lost the discussion about values.” Santa Cruz Indivisible has a mailing list of about 2,500. It engages another 1,500 people through social media. The group operates in a non-centralized manner to maximize effective action and to minimize conflict about priorities. “We don’t have a meeting every week where we expect everyone to come,” says Kelly. “We don’t require everyone to agree or believe in everything. That’s impossible anyway. So we have activities that are not dependent on each other.” Kelly says that Indivisible will partner with other community groups, including TEDx Santa Cruz and Bookshop Santa Cruz, on an initiative called “Citizenship 2.0,” a series of events to explore the meaning of citizenship in a complex modern and technological world. At the same time, he says, SCI will seek to model effective political activism. “People come to us motivated to do something,” he says. “We want to capture that energy. We want to allow them to do what they’re passionate about, and then get the hell out of the way—as long as they are not doing something that is harmful to someone or is going to get us in trouble. We don’t need to second-guess them. They should be able to tell us what we can do to help them. We share the same values.”

SANTACRUZ.COM | GOODTIMES.SC | MARCH 13-19, 2019

or most of his life, Joe Sib has made his own way. The Santa Cruz native—who grew up in the Olive Springs Road outlands of Soquel before moving to San Jose in his teens—had a majorlabel contract with his pop-punk band Wax by his early 20s. In the mid-90s, he co-founded SideOneDummy Records, the indie label that launched the careers of bands as diverse as Flogging Molly, the Gaslight Anthem and Gogol Bordello. In 2009, he toured a one-man show called California Calling, based on his memories of the 1980s South Bay punkskate scene that produced Steve Caballero, Corey O’Brien and many others. Not long after, he started touring as a stand-up comedian. But for maybe his biggest break ever, he needed some help. From his dad. “The whole reason I’m on tour with Metallica is because of my dad,” Sib admits on a phone call from the road, where he’s finishing up the last of 35 shows he will have done with the Bay Area metal legends by the end of the tour. The story—and with Sib, there is always a story—goes like this: his extremely OCD nature inspired a habit of calling around to the camps of various big-name comedians when the L.A.-based Sib saw they were coming to Southern California, to ask if they needed an opener. Usually, they did not, but he developed some good relationships over time. One of those paid off in a big way when the publicist for Jim Breuer asked if he wanted to open a San Diego show for Breuer in 2017. He jumped at the chance, and gave his dad a call. “My dad is retired, he lives in San Diego, and I said, ‘Hey dad, I got a show tonight in San Diego. I’ll swing by, let’s go. It’s with this guy Jim Breuer who used to be on Saturday Night Live, you’re gonna dig him,’” Sib remembers. “So I bring my dad to the show, we’re cruising around, it’s this big theater. And my dad being my dad, when he meets Jim in Jim’s dressing room, they’re immediately talking baseball, and I’m pretty sure my dad made a sandwich out of Jim Breuer’s food. They’re just hanging, dude.” The show went well, and about a week later, Sib got a call from Breuer, asking if he wanted to open for him in Seattle. And then after that, Canada. That led to what Sib calls “a really great friendship,” and early last year, Breuer asked him to tour with him as his featured opening act. For Sib, it seemed like an important next step—a chance to hone his craft with regular touring, opening for a big-name comic—but the weird thing was, he didn’t even think Breuer had watched his set that first night in San Diego. So what had inspired Breuer to give him the second shot that set him on this path? Yup, his dad. “That’s what started everything,” says Breuer. “He showed up with his dad. His dad walks in the room, and Joe’s like, ‘Dad, dad, don’t come in,’ and I said, ‘No, it’s all right, come on in. What do you want?’ ‘Well! I’ll have a banana!’ ‘OK, have a banana. You want some coffee?’ ‘Oh, I’d love coffee!’ And Joe’s like, ‘Dad, we’ve got our own room.’ I said, ‘No, he’s all right, it’s okay.’ I didn’t even watch Joe’s act. I could care less at that point. I just thought, ‘Wow, the guy brings his father. Of all the choices, he brings his father.’ He’s already ahead of the game for me. So I just listened to make sure they weren’t booing him or saying he was terrible. And he’s in. The dad got him in.”

“I always tell my dad, ‘Jim was more stoked on you than me,’” says Sib. Things got a lot crazier later in 2018, when Metallica vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield told Breuer the band wanted to try something radically different for the opening act of their upcoming tour. Specifically, they wanted Breuer—a famously big fan and friend of the band featured in the VH1 documentary When Metallica Ruled the World and the MTV Icon special dedicated to Metallica—to put together a sort of opening show to entertain crowds before they hit the stage every night. “I had a radio show where we did a game show with the band,” says Breuer. “That started, ‘Hey, you know that thing you did with us on the radio? Will you do that for our fans?’ Then they saw me a year or

two ago at Rock on the Range, and I just remember James going, ‘God, man, you should be touring with us. Our fans would eat you up.’ And then out of nowhere about a year ago he texts, ‘Hey we’re thinking about doing something for the fans. We’re not sure what.’” Not long after, Metallica officially asked Breuer to open their tour. And when drummer Lars Ulrich asked him if he wanted to take anyone along, he mentioned Sib. “So Lars immediately pops open the computer and says, ‘All right, let me check this out. Joe Sib… OK, SideOneDummy Records, fucking cool,’” says Sib, doing an eerily dead-on Ulrich impression. Luckily, whatever stand-up clip Ulrich saw, he liked. “Lars watches it, he laughs, and goes, ‘All right, I’m down. This guy’s cool with me, talk to James.’

One person who is not surprised at all that this happened is Santa Cruz comedian DNA, who first met Sib six years ago at a comedy show where they both performed. “He told me he was opening for Metallica with Jim Breuer, and I was like, ‘Of course you are,’” says DNA (who is also a GT contributor). He’s been impressed not only with Sib’s material, but also his presence on stage. “He’s got this infectious energy,” says DNA. “You just feel yourself getting charged up when you’re around Joe Sib.” That, combined with Sib’s roots in the area, is why DNA chose him to be the inaugural headliner at the opening of DNA’s Comedy Lab and Experimental Theatre on March 22. The first comedy theater to ever open in Santa Cruz, DNA’s Comedy Lab is opening in the space where the Riverfront Twin theater closed last June. For DNA and his three partners—his wife, Jessica Abramson, who’s also the events manager for UCSC’s Arts Division, plus Mike and Susan Pappas, who own True Olive Connection in downtown Santa Cruz—it’s been a 16-month process of screening possible venues around the city: the old Sentinel building, the former Radio Shack location on Soquel, and so on. But this was the only true theater that was available, which was really what they wanted. “It was meant to be, I think,” says DNA. “If we’d gotten the Radio Shack, it would have to have been a club. That’s not me. I’m this. I’m a theater person.” In the venue’s two spaces, a 340seat “Comedy Lab” and a 164-seat “Experimental Theatre,” he wants to do a lot of things besides comedy shows—everything from theatrical

productions to movie-riffing nights, improv sketch comedy to classes, live podcasts to puppet shows. Of course, he has to get the space ready first, and when DNA opens the front door to let me take a look at the progress a week-and-a-half before opening, he’s a little blearyeyed. He hasn’t been sleeping, and can’t exactly remember what kind of hours he’s been keeping. “I live here, basically, at this point,” he says. “I’m like Jack Torrance in The Shining, I just kind of wander the halls. But it’s 15,000 square feet, so I’m getting in my steps. My Fitbit is blowing up.” Mike Pappas, who’s been overseeing the construction aspect of the project, drops in with some supplies and updates. He was the one who originally approached DNA after one of DNA’s annual comedy festivals, asking him what he wanted to do next. When DNA told the Pappases about his dream of opening a comedy venue here, they said they wanted to be involved. They’ve seen DNA throw himself into building the comedy scene in Santa Cruz, from his years of hosting underground shows at the Blue Lagoon to the comedy festivals, and now this. “This is a whole other level he’s bringing it to,” says Mike. “I’m excited that we stumbled across this space. This is a no-brainer. Very little upgrade—more clean-up than anything.” That said, they had to build stages, and they’ve given the place quite a bit more polish than it had when it was the Regal theater chain’s dumping ground for B-to-Z grade movies. And there is still the green room to do … “I woke up at 5 a.m. this morning because I was really freaked out about the green room,” says DNA. “How’s it going to get done in time?” But he cycles back around to his trademark calm, which fits in much better with the Grateful Dead song floating through the background. “It’s coming together, man. Piece by piece.” Before things all got quite so crazy, DNA and Abramson did have time to go see Breuer and Sib at the

LIGHT ME ON FIRE

However incredible the show may be now, Sib is brutally honest about the fact that it started out as a work in progress. There was really no way for him and Breuer to practice what they had planned for the shows, and the first gig didn’t go too well. “After the first night in Madison, Wisconsin, there were people straight-up telling me on Instagram, ‘If you ever come back to Madison, I will light you on fire,’” he says. “People were not stoked.” But the next morning, he was at Breuer’s room at 7 a.m. with a bunch of new ideas.

“Honestly, he could have been like, ‘No offense, but they hired me,’” says Sib. “Instead, he just starts laughing and was like, ‘Let’s do this. Let’s build this thing together.’ He was so open to ideas, and he came with so many ideas. We sat down and took our pieces of paper out, and wrote down the things that worked and wrote down the things we didn’t want to do, and there was just no ego involved. It was such a collaboration. That’s when I knew we were going to be friends for life.” The duo managed to turn things completely around by the next show, and that’s when they figured out what has become their template. It’s certainly not like any opening act Metallica—or anybody else— has ever seen. And they’re playing to much larger crowds than they expected. “Lars told us, ‘Do whatever

you guys want to do, but don’t be bummed, because there will probably only be five people in the arena when you’re there.’ So I was like, ‘OK, that’s not a lot of pressure.’ But I go on at 7, and Jim comes on at 7:30, and every night when I come on it’s already half-full, and by the time Jim hits the stage, it’s at capacity,” says Sib. “The show that we do is literally a two-hour show. It reminds me of being a kid when I was living in San Jose, and my dad would go away for the weekend, and I would throw a rager at my house. You get a keg, you’re playing music, and after you get done playing music, a band would play. Except in this case, it’s Metallica.” Sib opens by going out with a laptop and pumping up the crowd, telling them he’s going to be their DJ, and inviting them to make requests as his Instagram pops up on the screen

behind him. Generally it’s a barrage of Slayer, Anthrax, Motorhead, etc., and Sib plays the metal hits until it’s time to introduce Breuer. “I say, ‘Here’s your host, your emcee and die-hard Metallica fan, Jim Breuer.’ Jim drops into a combination of storytelling-slashcrowdwork-slash-emcee-slashMetallica-fan for like 40 minutes. He’s telling stories about when he met Ozzy Osbourne. He’s telling stories about when he went to James’ house for the first time for dinner with his wife, and his wife tells James that her favorite band she ever saw was Bon Jovi. Like that. Good stories, and he’s also interacting with the crowd.” After that, it’s a mix of music and crowd work, but Sib does have a special bit he does toward the end of their show. “I tell a story about seeing the … And Justice For All tour at the Cow Palace, and how I had to sit up in the nosebleeds, and I was bummed because I saw everyone on the floor. I told that story to Lars, and he said, ‘Well, why don’t you go up there and bring some people down, then? You can do whatever you want.’ So every night I go to some section and bring down like 10 people onto the floor,” he says. “And dude, people get emotional.” As the tour nears an end, Sib can’t believe the response they’ve gotten. “You can genuinely feel the energy from the audience,” he says. “Metallica’s smart, they’re friends with Jim, they knew Jim would bring the right show. He didn’t have to bring me, but he did, and I’m so proud of the show we put on. It’s been such a game-changer for me.” “Joe is a huge motivator,” says Breuer of why he chose Sib. “He’s funny. If I bring up a premise or joke, he knows how to help me elaborate on it, and I do the same with him. He just had a great energy, and it was a perfect storm when Lars asked me, ‘Is there someone you want to bring along?’ I went, ‘Well, Joe’s a big music guy, we need a DJ. I think I got a guy.’” Breuer says he was never nervous about how the tour would go, but he’s enjoyed learning what

works and what doesn’t, gradually perfecting it. “No one’s done this,” he says. “I think we definitely pulled it off. I think the fans really liked it for the most part. The band loves it. It’s been nothing but an extremely positive experience. If we do it again, I’ll be ready to make it even bigger and better.” Hell, even that first night of the tour isn’t looking so bad, in retrospect. “Jim Breuer and I hold the record for the longest opening act on stage ever for Metallica,” says Sib. “That night in Madison, we were on stage for two hours and 40 minutes. And we survived, dude. Two guys, two microphones, one laptop, and we survived.”

a married couple in a production at the Blue Room Theater in Chico 17 years ago. “The joke was that we were such bad actors that we actually fell in love,” she says. DNA says their skill sets have always complemented each other well. Right now he’s on a learning curve too, as he navigates the business of comedy on a larger level. “I’ve grown up with the guerilla, anti-corporate model, and I need to expand,” he says. Like dealing with more agencies for comedy’s big names, for instance. “I’ve spent the last 12 years making personal relationships with the comedians, so I go straight to the comedians.” He wants to do it all without losing the essential Santa Cruz-ness of the project. “Our motto is ‘building community through laughter,’” he says. “I think it’s the antidote to the malaise and social isolation that people are facing right now.” Beyond just the comedy aspect, debuting with someone like Sib is part of that. “Joe walks the walk,” says DNA. “He treats people like human beings. He’s a good soul.” The feeling is mutual. “I couldn’t be happier for DNA,” says Sib. “DNA

does the work of 30 people. Santa Cruz has such a jewel in DNA. This guy loves the comedy scene, he is a comic, he knows talent, he works with young comedians. What I love about him is that he’s not only an entrepreneur—he also cares so much about the comedians. He cares about everybody from the kid that just got up on the mic for the first time ever to the international comic that’s done every festival.” For Sib, being invited to perform on the opening night of the first comedy club in his hometown takes him back to where his love of comedy came from in the first place. “When I think of stand-up comedy, I think of living with my parents out on Olive Springs Road, out in the middle of nowhere. I think about growing up on that ranch, listening to Richard Pryor and George Carlin, and having my dad keep me up late to watch Saturday Night Live,” he says. “To be the guy from Santa Cruz who gets to kind of light the torch—like, ‘OK, this is happening, there’s a comedy club in Santa Cruz’—I know it might sound cheesy to say I feel honored, but I do. I just feel super, super honored that he would ask me.”

Levitin’s protagonist does both in this odyssey that weaves back and forth in time, tracking a mysterious postcard from Aunt Josephine before she was shipped off to Siberia. After much hilarious drinking, smoking and kvetching with three equally disaffected artist buddies, Krumm—along with Alan the occasional journalist, handsome Easy Wayne and Robert the ex-pat Brit— pack weed, beer and bicycles onto a train for Poland and a long weekend of debauched soul searching. Levitin knows his territory. Five years as a journalist in Berlin before returning to his native Bay Area, plus his vantage point at the edge of the millennial generation, gives him an astringent perspective on postfeminism, late capitalism, global unemployment, and the overall ennui of males who have yet to find traction in a chaotic Zeitgeist. The voice of Disposable Man is intimate and vivid as Levitin spins the saga of one man’s journey to set the family record straight. With his tongue firmly in his cheek, the author probes the irony of being Jewish in Berlin. “It’s still too shocking that a Jew should just turn up and put down roots in this capital of capitals—in this inferno of his past,” the author writes. “A Jew cannot just simply come to Berlin: he needs an alibi.” Levitin goes on to explain that, “Jews are now coming to and staying and living in Berlin, because Berlin has had the madness boiled out of it. Berlin is exhausted.” And so are

the ex-pats, careers temporarily comatose, who meet at their favorite bar to take shots, smoke weed and complain about women. Krumm and co.’s long weekend of talking, fishing, swimming, drinking, smoking, and laughing magically morphs into a moment of Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake. (And yes, this is a daring and courageous gamble on the author’s part.) It ends with a bonfire, at which the quartet, now gone completely wild and feral, howl at the flames until dawn. The bonfire on the Polish riverbank is simultaneously a Viking funeral pyre, a rite of passage and a cremation of four men’s impossible dreams. It is also a ritual grieving for their entire generation, the men who’ve become satellites to a world controlled by women. The Golden Age of bad old masculinity has ended, broken into submission by ascendant Others. Disposable Man is a compelling male manifesto, an elegy to lost purpose and grip—stunning, angry, smart, funny, and uncomfortably precise. Most remarkable, perhaps, is the fact that this young man’s tale of angst is capable of resonating so richly with a female Baby Boomer. Tears filled my eyes as I read the last pages. A tour de force, crackling with humor and defiance. Continuous shots of vodka without a hangover. Michael Levitin will discuss ‘Disposable Man’ with poet and essayist Stephen Kessler on March 15 from 7-9 p.m. Felix Kulpa Gallery, 107 Elm St., Santa Cruz.


MUSIC

FLIPPING THE ‘LIGHTSWITCH’ Tess Dunn performs at the album-release party

for her new T3TRA record on Saturday, March 16.

Masking Tapes Tess Dunn brings new album under her alter-ego T3TRA to Santa Cruz BY WALLACE BAINE The Santa Cruz native returns to her hometown for a performance as T3TRA at Kuumbwa Jazz Center on March 16. She’ll be showcasing a new album called Lightswitch. “It’s one of the best ideas I ever had,” she says of her on-stage persona. Throughout her adolescence, Dunn performed and recorded under her given name. That changed once she reached her twenties. Lightswitch is now her second effort as T3TRA. Beginning with 2009’s Darling Just Walk, the artistic persona Dunn presented under her real name was a specific thing. “She was always optimistic. She had a zest for life, wouldn’t let anything get her down,” says Dunn. “And all that was true

when I was teenager.” That changed, she says, when she began experiencing exhausting mood swings, from manic episodes of activity and creativity to shut-down periods of depression. Eventually, she was diagnosed with bipolar-1 disorder. “I wanted to write about it,” she says, “but it felt weird doing so as Tess Dunn, because I already had a reputation under that name. It didn’t feel right to write about how depressed I was. Also, at that age—19, 20—I was experiencing adult things like lust and love that I didn’t really understand at 15 or 16.” On top of that, she was wary of disappointing an audience who had come to expect a certain spirit in her music, a spirit

Tess Dunn performs as T3TRA at the album-release concert for ‘Lightswitch’ at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, at Kuumbwa Jazz Center, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $10 advance/$15 door. iamt3tra.com.

O

scar Wilde didn’t know a thing about electropop music. But if he were around today, the 19th-century playwright and legendary wit would totally get Tess Dunn. It was Wilde, remember, who once said, “Give a man a mask, and he’ll tell you the truth.” That applies to Dunn, a 24-yearold singer-songwriter who has been performing and recording since the age of 13. Not because she wears a mask on stage, but because she has taken to recording under an alter ego named T3TRA (pronounced “Tetra”). And it’s through T3TRA that she’s telling her truth.

that suddenly felt confining. It was time for an artistic reset. At the same time, she was beginning to be seduced by the beats and textures of electronica, and a break into a new alter ego allowed her to change up her fundamental sound from bright and buoyant power-pop to a darker, synthetic vibe. As a result, in a Wilde-ian sense, Dunn is now telling her truth in a way that she had not dared before. The title track of new album Lightswitch is a particularly emotionally naked stab at grappling with the disorienting mood swings of bipolar. “It’s probably the most honest song I’ve ever written in my 10 years of songwriting,” she says. Facing a bipolar disorder is burden enough for anyone, but Dunn has also been dealing with other serious health issues her entire life. Namely, cystic fibrosis (CF), a devastating chronic disease that primarily affects the lungs and demands intense day-to-day treatment. Mostly as a result of her CF condition, she’s also had to face epilepsy and diabetes. Life expectancy for those with CF is somewhere in the mid-40s, but that number has been steadily moving northward thanks to improvements in treatment. After graduating from Sonoma State University last year, she was sidelined by a severe flare-up of CF symptoms. “In that case, getting sick was definitely a blessing for me, because it pushed me to turn back to my music and say to myself, ‘Yeah, that’s really what I want to do with my life,” she says. Cystic fibrosis has given Dunn a considerable headwind in her life and career, and she’s always felt that she’s had to cram a lot in what she believes will be an abbreviated lifespan. But being involved in the CF community has allowed her to keep a valuable perspective. “I have this weird sense of guilt,” she says. “I mean, I have friends with CF who are in the hospital every other month. And though I’m feeling bad a lot, numbers-wise I can’t complain because I’m doing so well.”

MUSIC CALENDAR

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND JAY LINGO

Local Americana singer-songwriter Jay Lingo moved to the Santa Cruz area in 2005. When he first got here, he hit the ground running, playing as many gigs as possible. He’d already been playing music in Pennsylvania, originally hailing from a modest, working-class neighborhood in Philly, and later moving to a rural part of the state. He channeled various influences of rock ’n’ roll, country and punk rock into his music.

MARCH 13-19, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“I like many different kinds of music. Once you put a label on your music, all anybody wants to do is tell you that you’re not ‘outlaw’ enough, or you're too ‘country,’” Lingo says. “If I want to write a rocker, I will. If I want to write a whiskey-and-steel-guitar-drenched country waltz, I’ll do that, too.”

42

Lingo, who’s a rancher in Aromas, is now a lot more selective about the gigs he takes. With two kids and a business to take care of, a show has to be worth his while. When he does play, it’s usually at the urging of other artists, like Jesse Daniel. Throughout his life, he’s used music as a means of therapy. He’s worked out some of his demons in his music. As a father, he views his creative output a little differently. No matter how often he plays, he’s still writing all the time. “I had some really bad habits that I was writing about, and I was singing those songs in bars full of people who had similar habits,” Lingo says. “I'm really trying to write music that my boys will be proud to hear. I’m trying to keep it positive.” AARON CARNES 9 p.m. Friday, March 15. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $10 adv/ $15 door. 479-1854.

GERMAN LOPEZ

WEDNESDAY 3/13 AFRICAN

LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO Paul Simon’s world beat-influenced Graceland was a huge and unexpected hit for the folk singer. But it also shined a light on some global musicians that most Americans were totally unfamiliar with up to that point. The all-male choir that opens “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes” is one of the most iconic moments on the record. That group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, had been a group in South Africa since the ’60s, and now enjoy a much larger audience. The ever-changing members continue to record and tour and wow audiences with their joy, passion and subtly complex songwriting. AC 7:30 p.m. Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $36.75. 423-8209.

THURSDAY 3/14 FLAMENCO

GERMAN LOPEZ German Lopez is a virtuoso on the “timple,” a traditional guitar from the

Canary Islands. Playing on stage with Antonio Toledo (Spanish guitar), they pluck and flit their way through conventional island music, adding flourishes of West African rhythms and playful nods to Spanish Flamenco. Together, they have the frenetic energy of dueling strings without the feigned animosity, instead creating stirring soundscapes built on melodies coalescing into unity. They play like guitar brothers, weaving their tales in and out of each other, riffing up and down the chords, until one can no longer tell where one man’s story begins and the other ends. AMY BEE 8:30 p.m. Flynn’s Cabaret & Steakhouse, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. $12 adv/$15 door. 335-2800.

FRIDAY 3/15 EXPERIMENTAL

MOON HOOCH Whoever thinks horns are dull hasn’t heard Moon Hooch. Like a grimy, bedraggled marching band at the big game that missed the bus home and now sleeps under the risers, Moon Hooch stomps into your world and leaves muddy footprints wherever it goes. Part rave, part jazz jam, and as indecipherable as an all-out orgy in your grandparents’ basement, be prepared to put

earplugs in, rubber gloves on, and just go with the whatever happens next. AB 9 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $12 adv/$15 door. 423-1338.

SURF

SHARK IN THE WATER It’s been a great evening at the Blur Lagoon, full of head-bobbing, nostalgic surf tunes, guitar rolls and hang-ten highs. Suddenly, the person next to you lets out a spine-twisting scream as a trio of fins—literally, three musicians in shark costumes—circle the stage. The audience gasps in horror as the band lets out a toothy, distorted guitar riff swimming through a sludgy rhythm section. Just when you thought it was safe was to go back in the club … Shark in the Water. MAT WEIR 9 p.m. Blue Lagoon, 923 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $5. 423-7117.

MON 3/18 & TUE 3/19 JAZZ-FUSION Though it emerged accidentally, there is a sort of kismetic charm to the name “Brand X.” Forever misunderstood by their pop-centric major label, the name stuck when a studio executive wrote the vague words “Brand X” on the studio calendar to keep track of the British fusion band’s recording sessions. Mercurial and virtuosic, it’s a high-flying, fretboard-shredding take on fusion, complete with psychedelic freakouts and musical bars blacked out with 32nd notes. Popularly known as “Phil Collins’ other band” (he was an original member), Brand X have all the pyrotechnics of their early days and

MONDAY 3/18 DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER An uncontainable force of nature, Dee Dee Bridgewater has unleashed her inner soul queen with her latest album Memphis…Yes, I’m Ready. The Grammy Award-winning NEA Jazz Master spent her adolescence surreptitiously soaking up Memphis R&B on her transistor radio when she was supposed to be sleeping. She spent several years in preparation for the 2017 album, connecting with musicians and honing a repertoire of vintage songs. Accompanied by soulsteeped horn players, expert backup vocalists and a skintight rhythm section with surging organ, Bridgewater dominates the stage, pouring so much energy into the tunes that they positively radiate pleasure.

a fair amount of humor into his folk tales. Apologies if you were thinking a performance by a man who calls his backing band the Hovering Breadcat Folk Ensemble would be a deathly serious affair. In his raspy baritone, Bodkin sings the stories of pirate tailors and animals, intermixed with moments of deep sincerity and personal reflection. He’s also a world-class whistler and won the 2017 Musical Whistling Competition. Part jazz ensemble, part folk raconteurs, the Bodkins and his Hovering Breadcats got a little something for everyone—everyone weird, that is.

Morgan James is an actress and Broadway singer. If you’re the kind of person that’s fancy, you might have seen her perform in Godspell or Motown: the Musical. She’s really good at interpreting iconic songs. So it makes sense that when she’s performing music off Broadway, she continues to put her own unique heartfelt spin on well-known songs. Her choices run the gamut. Last year, she gave Nirvana’s “Lithium” the acousticsoul treatment. I don’t care how much of a Nirvana purist you are, you will dig her rendition. She’s also done music from the Beatles’ White Album and D’Angelo’s Black Messiah.

FILM

THAT’S SUPER Brie Larson as Carol Danvers in ‘Captain Marvel.’

Power and Fury MARCH 13-19, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson elevate the familiar in ‘Captain Marvel’ BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

48

E

xpert script-flippage gives texture to the heartfelt female empowerment message within Captain Marvel. It starts as a war-on-terror movie, with the shape-shifting Skrulls as an insurgent enemy, hiding among the locals on a planet that looks like Afghanistan. We arrive at our more current malaise when the film’s true villain starts talking of foreigners who “threaten our borders.” When Captain Marvel is over, one notes that conventional romantic lead isn’t here, and also wasn’t missed. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and the five credited writers, give this heroine’s journey the same attractive solitude that male heroes—super

and otherwise—have enjoyed in the movies forever. Brie Larson’s appealing underplaying sells this material, which isn’t the freshest. Her character Carol Danvers has the same last name as Supergirl. In honor of copyrights, Stan Lee glommed on to the name of an established redclad, magically powered superhero who predated the Marvel Universe. (That previous Captain Marvel is going to be back in the movies for the first time in decades under his new name, Shazam.) The creation of this Captain Marvel is as much a tribute to Lee’s relentless branding as is his mandatory cameo and the posthumous thanks to him before the titles.

Marvel is called “Vers”, an amnesiac soldier of the outer space Kree empire, with the ability to blast photon rays from her fists. The power is a gift from the Empire’s all-highest, an AI simulation that appears to her in the shape of Annette Benning. Vers has a rep for being too unfocused and emotional, as she’s always reminded by her superior officer and sparring partner (Jude Law). After a skirmish, Vers is captured by the pointed-eared Skrulls. Her dormant memories are stirred up during an interrogation by their diabolical leader, the Cockneyaccented Taros (an amusing Ben Mendelsohn). After blasting her way off the ship, Vers falls to earth into 1990s North

Hollywood. The ruckus summons America’s top secret agent Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson, digitized to a younger form, wearing a plasticy wig, and still possessing both eyes). The corpse of a dead Skrull convinces Fury of Vers’ story. As they try to round up the aliens, the jagged bits of Vers past keep flashing back: she recalls her past life as a fighter pilot and her lifelong friendship with her fellow pilot Marie Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). It’s possible that the lamentation of fanboys has been exaggerated publicity to make a blockbuster sound like an underdog. But there has been some public wailing by fans emasculated by a strong heroine. Hope they’ll save some tears for the scenes where Samuel L. does some things he may never have done in a movie: helping to wash the dishes and going gooey for a orange kitty called “Goose,” in honor of Top Gun. Larson and Jackson have a smooth rapport. She brings in a great deal of feeling, but also some playfulness. In the patronization-free partnership with Fury, our heroine can be slightly bratty, pestering him at a bar about why he thinks everyone should call him by his last name. “And what will your kids call you?” “Fury.” There was a Blue Angels flyby over Hollywood to promote Captain Marvel; the military-industrial-entertainment complex at work. Future historians could note this show of military might occurred during a week of public speculation about drafting women into the military. Despite some starchy Louisiana heartland sequences, this is an effective fantasy of power used with grace and without arrogance, featuring a constantly underestimated figure, rising up again after being knocked down. Fully charged up and blazing in the heavens, this Captain Marvel is as fine an embodiment of the Superman figure as there has been in the movies. Hopefully, six weeks from now in Avengers: Endgame, this flying light goddess is going to barbecue Thanos and his conservative austerity program. CAPTAIN MARVEL Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Jude Law. (PG-13) 123 minutes.

FILM NEW RELEASES CAPTIVE STATE Ever wonder what an alien occupation of Earth might be like? Do the words “relaxing” and “positively delightful” come to mind? Well, then you’re totally wrong, according to the gritty new sci-fi film Captive State. No, the world of this science-fiction crime thriller—in which humans have endured 10 years of rule under hostile aliens—is one of fascist crackdowns and complete disregard for due process of law. But don’t worry, it’s definitely not a metaphor for America in 2019 or anything! Directed by Rupert Wyatt. Starring John Goodman, Vera Farmiga and Ashton Sanders. (PG-13) 109 minutes. (SP)

MARCH 13-19, 2019 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

CLIMAX Gaspar Noé has made some weird films—if you’ve seen Irreversible, you know what I’m talking about. So one more can’t hurt! His latest follows the story of a bunch of French dancers who accidentally drink some LSD-laced sangria during an allnight rehearsal, leading to some seriously messed-up situations. Somewhere, Jodorowsky is smiling. (Probably on a movie set. That guy is like 90 years old and still making movies.) Written and directed by Noé. Starring Sofia Boutella, Romain Guillermic and Souheila Yacoub. (R) 97 minutes. (SP)

50

THE WEDDING GUEST Michael Winterbottom wrote and directed this action thriller about a mysterious British man (played by Dev Patel) taking a mysterious trip to India to kidnap a mysterious woman (played by Radhika Apte) who mysteriously seems to be in on the abduction. (R) 97 minutes. (SP) WONDER PARK In this computeranimated family film, a 10-year-old girl discovers that the imaginary amusement park she dreamt up while playing as a young child is actually real, and she has to join with some talking animals to save it. Perhaps the craziest thing about this premise is that she seems

more impressed by the existence of the park than by the fact that animals can talk? Featuring the voices of Brianna Denski, Matthew Broderick, Kenan Thompson, and Jennifer Garner. (PG) 85 minutes. (SP) CONTINUING EVENT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES Film buffs are invited Wednesday nights 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 ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL James Cameron started developing this manga adaptation in 1999, but when it came down to actually making one of his two giantCGI-eyes projects in 2009, he chose Avatar instead. Director Robert Rodriguez rescued this from development hell, but what may have seemed edgy 20 years ago—a cyborg risking her life in a battle royale bloodsport designed to appease the post-apocalyptic masses … wait, hold on. So this movie is basically Rollerball? No wonder Cameron didn’t want to make it—it’s already been made twice! And one time it was even good! Starring Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, and Mahershala Ali. (PG-13) 122 minutes. (SP) APOLLO 11 If you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, didn’t I already see this movie?”—no, that might have been Ron Howard’s Apollo 13. (I hope for your sake it wasn’t the god-awful horror movie Apollo 18, about a moon mission that never actually happened.) Or maybe it was The Last Steps, the 2016 documentary about Apollo 17. It could definitely have been First Man, last year’s Neil Armstrong biopic starring Ryan Gosling that worked its way up to the Apollo 11 mission. It’s hard to keep all these Apollos and the movies about them straight, but this documentary is a brand-new look at the 1969 mission that first

got us to the moon, and it’s been pieced together entirely out of archival footage (some of it never before seen), with no narration or talking-head interviews. Its unusual approach won it the Special Jury Award for Editing at Cannes last month. (G) 93 minutes. (SP) ARCTIC Survival thriller has Mads Mikkelsen stranded in the Arctic Circle. He’s doomed! But then … he sees a rescue helicopter! He’s saved! But then … you realize this is still the beginning of the movie and there is no way this helicopter rescue is going to work out. He’s doomed! But then … Directed by Joe Penna. (PG-13) 98 minutes. (SP) CAPTAIN MARVEL Reviewed this issue. (PG-13) 123 minutes. COLD WAR Every shot is thrilling in Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski’s follow up to Ida. This lean, fast film concerns the paradox of mid20th 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) EVERYBODY KNOWS The nuance of family dynamics is a specialty of Asghar Farhadi, as seen in his two previous Oscar-winning Iranian films, A Separation and The Salesman. Family secrets and hidden agendas abound in this suspense drama, set in Spain, and Fahardi handles them with his usual sensitivity. But the movie never quite achieves the emotional epiphany we hope for. Stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem (even more expansive and full of gusto than usual) are

worth watching in every frame they’re in, the ensemble cast is excellent, and Madrid looks beautiful. But when all is finally revealed, there’s just not as much there, there as we might wish. (R) 133 minutes. In Spanish with English subtitles. (LJ) GREEN BOOK After earning a well-deserved Supporting Actor Oscar for Moonlight, the versatile Mahershala Ali tries something completely different in this serious-minded, yet entertaining view of racism in the American South, ca 1962, as experienced by a working-class white guy from Brooklyn hired to drive a cultured black pianist on a concert tour through the Deep South. Directed by Peter Farrelly and based on a true story, its portrait of centuryold racist attitudes still so deeply ingrained in everyday life could be (and often is) chilling. But the movie succeeds on the chemistry between its excellent stars, Ali as the reserved, morally particular pianist, and Viggo Mortensen as his gregarious, tough-guy driver, forging a hard-won alliance against institutional racism and their own personal prejudices. Co-starring Linda Cardellini, Mike Hatton and Sebastian Maniscalco. (PG-13) 130 minutes. (LJ) GRETA On the count of three, let’s both say the first two words that come to mind when you read the description “French piano teacher who loves tea and classical music.” One, two, three … homicidal maniac! I know, right? So it’s hard to believe Chloë Grace Moretz doesn’t see the Single White Female thing coming from a mile away when she returns a lost handbag to Isabelle Huppert’s Greta at the beginning of this movie, and discovers this freaky lady checks all those boxes. She doesn’t, though, and before you know it, Greta begins to act creepy and obsessive. Director Neil Jordan may be best known for The Crying Game, but he’s done some wild genre stuff in the past, like The Company of Wolves and In Dreams (let’s not talk about

Interview with the Vampire), so expect some surprises in this suspense thriller. Co-starring Colm Feore and Stephen Rea. (R) 98 minutes. (SP) HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD This is the third film in this series, people. If you haven’t learned how to train your dragon by now, you probably need to hire a professional. Directed by Dean DeBlois. Featuring the voices of Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, and F. Murray Abraham. (PG) 104 minutes. (SP) ISN’T IT ROMANTIC Rebel Wilson gets hit on the head and wakes up as the star of her own romantic comedy. Actually, a lot of wacky things happen to people in movies when they get hit on the head. But when I try it, I just black out and then wake up with a really bad headache. Maybe this wrench is too big. Or too small? I’ll keep experimenting. (PG-13) 88 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. (PG) 106 minutes. (SP) A MADEA FAMILY FUNERAL Tyler Perry says this will be the last Madea film. So, there’s that. Written and directed by Perry. Starring Perry, Cassi Davis and Patrice Lovely. (PG-13) (SP)

FOOD & DRINK small portion of green goddess salad ($6) was indeed small, but intensely flavored and liberally tossed with parmesan and avocado. The roasted garlic croutons were very thin. Tiny, crunchy and delicious. The classic though mild chicken terrine ($9) came with little carrots and pickled kumquat, plus toast and greens. It was a pretty grouping of ingredients, but a small portion. LeBron would need two orders. A dessert of griddled Meyer lemon loaf ($6) was delicious topped with whipped cream, fresh mint and bits of mandarin. I hope the menu expands.

Soquel’s new Pretty Good Advice off to a pretty great start BY CHRISTINA WATERS

W

arm and casual is the vibe at Soquel’s new breakfast and lunch spot, Pretty Good Advice, the brainchild of former SF chef Matt McNamara. A short menu of morning and noontime items is well stocked with outstanding breads and pastries created by Jen Jackson, while McNamara’s charcuterie recipes round out the house entrée offerings. A recent morning visit rewarded us with outstanding Cat & Cloud coffee, plus a textbook cinnamon babka ($4), a tangy honey-thyme scone ($3.50) and ricotta toast with quince butter ($4.50)—all baked on the premisses in the exhibition kitchen that takes

up half the tiny interior. Indoor picnic seating establishes the tone of PGA, while the café’s outdoor seating will be an obvious summer magnet for those who crave conversation and sunshine. The ricotta toast was intriguing. The thick slab of bread—served, as is everything at PGA, in a coated paper basket—wasn’t actually toasted, but it was as warm and delicious any pain de campagne I’ve ever tasted. The thyme-scented scone exploded with flavor and texture, and we look forward to sampling more sweet and savory creations from this experimental baker. Counter service rules here at Pretty Good Advice: you order, pay,

take a number, gather your utensils, and pour your coffee into paper carry-out cups. No glass, ceramic, cloth, or metal in the place. At lunch we had a chance to sample the sophisticated entrée plates, which arrive partnered with toasted housemade bread, baby carrots, some pretty lettuces, and fresh pickles. The small portions are very attractive, though it’s difficult to cut through the ham and bread with the black plastic utensils provided. Our favorite lunch item was the pork paté with grilled ham ($9.50). Paired with crunchy toast points, mustard (some mayo would also be welcome), and little pickles, this was the most substantial lunch by far. The

Deciding that seafood is misunderstood and needs to be cast in a sustainable light, the folks from One Fish Foundation (onefishfoundation.org) are hosting a KNOW FISH dinner next Sunday, March 17, at 5 p.m. at the Santa Cruz Food Lounge. Expect a show-and-tell dinner, where you’ll dine on fresh, delicious and responsibly harvested seafood while you learn more about what “responsibly harvested” really means. The hardest-working act in the the local fish biz, Ocean2table entrepreneurs Ian Cole and Charlie Lambert, will be on hand to tell stories about how they caught and processed the seafood you’ll be eating. Chef Diego Felix of Colectivo Felix will fill participants in on the importance of sourcing locally harvested seafood, and you’ll learn about the changing “seascape” for domestic and global seafood.

Zest for Life

Embracing the bounty of winter citrus season BY LILY STOICHEFF

W

inter is often considered the season of “less.” Our days have less sunshine and warmth; our bodies desire to do less, preferring to hunker down in a warm place for the colder months; and, if we’re eating seasonally, there’s less to choose from compared to summer’s colorful smorgasbord of fruits and veggies. But one thing Mother Nature offers in bounty during the winter is citrus. In Santa Cruz County, we are able to choose from dozens of varieties at local farmers’ markets and grocery stores, where boxes overflow with these golden globes. Even the most neglected lemon trees in our backyards decorate themselves with shining, rainwashed fruit, gleaming and defiant against the grey winter skies, edible emblems of the sunshine we all crave. Although we have the opportunity to enjoy citrus year round, winter is the perfect time to indulge in tangerines, pomelos, Navel oranges, blood oranges, and kumquats. An excellent source of vitamin C, they help guard us against illness. Plus, their acidity cuts through heavy comfort foods: a

squeeze of sour orange over braised pork, lemon on cannellini beans, or lime in a coconut curry complement these dishes’ richness and make the flavor come alive. As always, head to the farmers’ markets to expand your citrus palate. Twin Girls Farms at the downtown market has a wide variety, but many other farms are offering deliciouslooking fruit in both popular and boutique varieties. I enjoy indulging in the opportunity to take home as much as I can carry. Plus, a wide bowl of warm-colored fruit makes a beautiful, snackable centerpiece. Those curious about new, interesting ways to use and preserve citrus might also enjoy the “Citrus Creations” class at Mountain Feed & Farm Supply in Ben Lomond on Sunday, March 24 ($30). Attendees will explore the many sweet, salty, tart, and savory preparations of citrus, “from citrus salts to preserved lemons, orange bitters to lemon cream.” I, for one, think there’s no better way to rediscover the joys of winter than to find new ways to eat your way through it. mountainfeed.com.

VINOCRUZ BRUNCH

Fancy a fresh-squeezed mimosa or a glass of local Equinox sparkling wine with your crab cakes benedict or salmon waffle? Or maybe you want a handcrafted cocktail, such as a Kir VinoCruz, with your egg scramble or crepe and bacon plate with fromage blanc, mascarpone cheese and Grand Marnier. The upbeat VinoCruz Wine Bar and Kitchen is now serving brunch from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Look for delicious poached eggs, Corralitos sausage, applewood smoked bacon, house-made buttermilk biscuits, and much more. The brunch choices are fresh and plentiful at VinoCruz—and packed with flavor, too. Brave souls out there will try a Cassis Liqueur and aromatic bitters, or a Snake Bite, made with cider and dark stout. It that’s your poison, then go for it!

e moved our clocks forward over the weekend, so we can now officially start to celebrate spring. How about cracking open a nice bottle of Pinot Noir Rosé? I found one made by Hahn Family Wines for about $15 on sale in a local supermarket, and it’s delightful. Although light and refreshing, there’s nothing wimpy about this Rosé. It’s bursting with flavors of strawberry, citrus and raspberry, and its crisp finish almost transports one to a sunny Greek isle. Also, this 2016 Rosé comes with a screw cap, so it’s perfect to take on a picnic—just in case you forget the corkscrew! The Hahn estate is a big operation. They own and farm two vineyards in the esteemed Arroyo Seco viticultural area (AVA) of Monterey County, and four estate vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Since 1980, the Hahn family has produced fine wines with a goal of showcasing the unique varietal characteristics of the region. Hahn has a tasting room in the newly revamped Carmel Plaza on Ocean Avenue, now a happening place to go for restaurants, gourmet

H RISA’S STARS BY RISA D’ANGELES A WEEK OF MANY FESTIVALS

Multiple festivals occur simultaneously this coming week. Spring equinox, International Astrology Day and the Aries solar festival (at the full moon) are Wednesday, March 20. Persian New Year, Holi (Indian spring festival) and Purim (Jewish Festival) are Thursday, March 21. Spring equinox (sun at the equator, zero degrees Aries) begins the new spiritual and solar year. In Aries, “all things new” begin. New life emerges in our northern hemisphere. Aries is the “fire of the mind,” bringing forth new ideas that become new ideals within humanity. Aries is “electric fire,” the fire in lightning storms usually experienced in spring. During spring equinox, the Solar Angel streams into the Earth a fresh impulse (the plan for the coming year). And at the full moon during Aries, the Forces of Restoration and the Spirit of Resurrection flow into the Earth (the Mother). These forces offer humanity a new “livingness” by restoring

our moral, ethical and psychological health. Their presence supports the new Aquarian culture and civilization and the emergence of the new Spiritual Materialism (sharing society). They offer a new hope and vision for the new world to unfold. Archangel Raphael (the Christian name for Mercury or Hermes), the Healing Angel, begins to preside over the Earth at the equinox, bringing healing and protection. He carries the Caduceus, staff of Mercury. It is written that each evening, Raphael gathers up all of humanity’s requests for healing, carrying them to heaven where he presents them before the throne of God. Here they are transformed into fragrant blossoms, which are then borne down to Earth by Raphael’s serving angels. The flowers, scattered about where there is pain and sorrow, bring solace, care, beauty, and comfort to those in need.

ARIES Mar21–Apr20

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22

You feel “in alignment” this month as fiery ideas, revelations and many new ideals are impressed upon your mind. Pay attention to them. They are important and will stabilize your actions and self-identity in the coming challenging times. View and interact in groups with discernment and discrimination. Stand tall and with courage and remember that fear only means you need more information. Research.

Your heart is filled with love for another (new, present or past relationship). Love changes and balances your past. You think about money in terms of legacies, inheritances, stocks, investments, taxes, or savings. Bring all thoughts, fears, interests and information into the light for discussion. Tend to debts and become very thrifty. And consider what would sustain you (food, people, items, etc.) if the world changes in the blink of an eye.

TAURUS Apr21–May21

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

You are ceaselessly serving others every day of your life. You work behind the scenes, which allows you to ponder, think, research, read, and study undisturbed. Sometimes you’re far away from home, tending to life and death situations or medical emergencies. You must turn toward yourself now and begin to heal, using different healing modalities–enough protein, vitamins, minerals, homeopathics, and a special purifying healing diet.

As you remain with your present work situation, consider creating new methods of well-being through communication and trainings, creating a caring work environment for everyone. Tend to your physical health, eliminating all sugars, dairy and gluten during Lent. Make sure to care for your financial health as well. In the meantime, remember to have fun, play a lot, and seek the artistic and the beautiful. Then creativity expands exponentially.

GEMINI May 22–June 20

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

How has the Mercury retrograde affected you? No matter what your present situation is, know that you’re being prepared for future work. For now, you’re to dispel the illusions that you are not strong or capable. Dispel the illusion that keeps you hiding away. During the retrograde, reflect upon the nurturing quality offered from loved ones and friends. Be grateful every moment of the day and night. Listen to Gregorian chants.

In your daily life, be willing to listen carefully to others; be curious about, agree with, and participate in their thoughts and ideas. This creates a loving emotional connection and balance in your life. Should you do this you will be seen as one who is wise, intelligent and caring—a new persona. Begin to intentionally cooperate, share and offer praise. These create right relations within, right relations without.

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20

Opportunities are being offered within groups and people you affiliate with. Perhaps a recognition or call to leadership or a future wish and hope will be fulfilled. New people from far away enter your inner circle through community interaction. In these interactions, maintain discrimination, ethics and ideals. You’re called to help someone in the garden. You know more than most. Share what you do know with kindness.

The energy of Aries influences your home and family, how you nurture and are given nurturance. Your constant care and nourishment given to family and tradition lead to a depth of unexpected love, for you are to family the “love that underlies all things.” Sometimes our families are far away. If this is the situation, radiate Goodwill from your heart to those both near and far. Then people walking into your radiant light feel you are their family.

LE0 Jul21–Aug22

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18

Work continues to be a place where revelations and changes occur, and these expand your influence. You develop new ways of relating to everyone professionally, creating a potent leadership ability. Your power is greater than you recognize and more than most comprehend. Careful with the authority you have become. Intentionally balance discipline, structure and will with kindness. Let love rule.

Watch with care all resources, finances, money. Be very aware of what your values are. Maintain communication with family and siblings. Are you moving about a lot, does your present environment need improvement in order for you to feel safe and secure? Communicate to everyone what your needs are. A new opportunity reveals itself in terms of recognition of your talents and your work in the world.

Things religious, spiritual and adventuresome, along with places far away, play upon your mind. You create intentions to be better organized; you prefer plans and agendas if they have travel and philosophy included. It’s important to know how to handle other people’s resources. You seek to learn what is of value about and within each person first. Then you learn how to honor them.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 Neptune, Mercury retrograde and Vesta are in Pisces. At times you feel captive and betrayed. Choices must be made. A home found. Neptune is dropping the veils between kingdoms. Mercury retrograde helps you remember things from the past. You ask forgiveness. Vesta has you making small sacrifices and tending the hearth. You miss so many things which are dissolving away. Find your place in the garden. Remain there. Especially at dawn and dusk. The devas join you then.

Let’s continue deciphering this riddle wrapped in a mystery inside of a market enigma by looking at one of the prime suspects: Move-Down Buyers (aging baby-boomers and their Octogenarian parents) who have the following things in common: They’ve owned their homes for a long time and have lots of equity. They are at transition points in their lives. They’d be happy to put their houses on the MLS tomorrow, if only.

Today’s big question: Why Aren’t More Sellers Selling? Very few folks would disagree with the notion that historic low inventory has been the driving force in the market for the last five or six years. But what’s unclear is the WHY behind it all. What factors have contributed to the huge crimp in the supply side of the equation?

Deliver Good Times early each Wednesday morning. Reliability and some flexibility with delivery time is needed. FOR DETAILS, CONTACT: SHANNEN CRAIG SHANNEN@GOODTIMES.SC

If only they could figure out how to do it in a way that makes sense and feels right. If only they could think their way past the push-pull of the Chinese finger-trap, torture-puzzle that comes with aging. If only they could learn the secret Jedi Mind-Trick that would allow them sell their home in seamless fashion while simultaneously buying a smaller, less expensive one, better suited to the future. At first glance, you wouldn’t think it would be that hard to sell a big house and buy a small one in Santa Cruz. But, if it were that easy, hundreds of would-be sellers I’ve talked to over the last few years would already have their houses on the MLS. They’d be in escrow, moving on to smaller and better things in life. And of course, the inventory of homes for sale would be much higher than it is now and presumably the market would be a much happier place to buy in. So what’s the hold-up? What makes it so hard to downsize in Santa Cruz? Are people asking for too much? Their priorities look pretty simple: They want smaller single level houses. They want to be closer in to community and conveniences. They want to free up a chunk of equity for their retirement. These are all desirable qualities of life that everyone can relate to, right? Which is part of the problem, of course. Buyers young and old are competing for the same kinds of houses in the same price ranges, and that makes the transition between selling and buying anything but seamless.

Who or what first got you you shopping here? I was a week old and my mother brought me to Shopper’s. I remember the free hot dogs they would give to kids and the wooden floors which I still find amazing. I like Shopper's aesthetics, the lighting… I have this saying,‘If you can’t find it at Shopper’s, you probably don’t need it.’ It has the best of everything — in different price points — like their spice section, unusual baking items, amazing liquors, olive oils, vinegars, salsas, but also all your everyday products.They don’t have 2,000 of each product; Shopper’s is carefully curated. Someone has the vision.

How so? It’s a creatively-run business with a vision that’s been followed since the beginning. Shopper’s is iconic for a reason. I like that there’s only one location. I have friends with one restaurant and some with multiple locations.You lose a little something when duplicating.Take Chez Panisse… and Shopper’s. Both have that certain magic! Shopper’s is family-owned and committed to the community.The money stays here.The store has a family vibe and the employees seem happy. My sister worked here while in high school — she loved it! Shopper’s is very social and fun.And old-school cool!

What do you like to cook? Everything. From the exotic and international such as Mexican, Balinese and pasta dishes to cheese soufflés, quiches, roasted vegetables and more. I can find everything that I need at Shopper’s, like Bluegrass Butter and baking ingredients which are hard to find. Shopper’s organic produce is fantastic and sometimes cheaper than the conventional. Shopper’s is convenient as you never wait in line. The checkers — the entire staff — are genuine, friendly and not over-the-top.You have real interactions. I tell new residents that Shopper’s is the epitome of the Santa Cruz experience.

“I tell new residents that Shopper’s is the epitome of the Santa Cruz experience: there’s the Big Dipper, Steamer Lane and Shopper’s Corner.”
