OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE As this issue goes to press, it’s Halloween. When it’s finished, and after I take my kid trick or treating tonight, I plan to watch John Carpenter’s Halloween. It’s something I do every year; in fact, it’s the only movie that I watch every year, without fail—and always around this time, of course. To me, there’s something about it that embodies not just the eponymous holiday, but also autumn, my favorite season, itself. It might sound ironic, considering it’s a horror movie full of shocks and suspense, but Halloween—with its famous, ominous tagline declaring “The Night HE came home!”—makes me feel at home. And it’s not even my favorite of Carpenter’s films. (That’s They Live.) I grew up watching them, and he was always one of the horror directors I was most interested in as a film fan and a writer. Considering the bizarre hostility he took from critics over the years for films that would eventually go on to be considered classics (including Halloween!), I always suspected he must be kind

SEEING GREEN? NO, SEEING RED Reporter Mat Weir points out that there has been “a surprising lack of controversy” over the County’s Cannabis Draft EIR (GT, 9/27). I submit that the document itself is so formidable (636 pages) that most folks won’t read it unless they have a stinky grow or explosive hash oil lab next door. The legislation is so onerous to growers that I doubt most will clear licensing hurdles. As cited in your article, only 25 out of roughly 760 registered cannabis growers so far have paid the $2,500 application fee. (And that’s just the folks who dared to walk out of the shadows.) The crux of the issue is enforcement. Nowhere in the humongous document is the fact that the county intends to enforce whatever law it decides upon. (It doesn’t want to get sued?) Under Section MM

of a bitter guy. As you’ll read in my cover story this week, nothing could be further from the truth. He, in fact, considers himself the luckiest guy on the planet. His roll-with-thepunches attitude toward his wild career is what made my interview with him most fascinating to me, but he was also just very, very funny. He’s coming to Santa Cruz on Sunday for a performance of his movie music at the Catalyst, and two of his best films will be shown at part of the Midnights at the Del Mar series on Friday and Saturday. I also wanted to mention that I will be in conversation with Jason Segel on Friday, Nov. 3 at the Veterans Memorial Building in Santa Cruz. Most people know Segel as an actor in films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and TV series like Freaks and Geeks and How I Met Your Mother. But he’s also built quite a career as a writer, and has just released his first YA novel, Otherworld, a trippy, Black Mirror-type trilogy-starter that he co-wrote with Kirsten Miller. We’ll be talking about his new book, his films and the general state of Jason Segel-ness. Tickets are almost soldout, so get them quick; more info at bookshopsantacruz.com! STEVE PALOPOLI | EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

AT-1.3b, page 6-3, you will note the term “mitigation” for the licensed growers and “monitoring” for unlicensed growers with annual reports to supervisors. Once the annual reports are presented (a twoyear process at best?), maybe a budget for “enforcement” will be considered. “Mitigation” and “monitoring” are not the same as enforcement. The lack of enforcement from the beginning is unconscionable. Currently, enforcement against illegal growers depends upon private parties who must report the perpetrator to the Planning Department. We are told by government reps “no one will find out who reported—it would take a lot of money and time to do that.” Hello? The illegals have enough cash to pay their lawyers for their time. Therefore, the illegals go unreported because the reporter fears reprisal to body or property or both. The system is broken. >8

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of November 1 ARIES Mar21–Apr19 America’s Civil War ended in 1865. A veteran from that conflict later produced a daughter, Irene Triplett, who is still alive today and collecting his pension. In the coming months, I foresee you being able to take advantage of a comparable phenomenon, although it may be more metaphorical. Blessings from bygone times, perhaps even from the distant past, will be available to you. But you’ll have to be alert and know where to look. So now might be a good time to learn more about your ancestors, ruminate exuberantly about your own history, study the lives of your dead heroes, and maybe even tune in to your previous incarnations.

TAURUS Apr20–May20 “I wasn’t in the market to buy a Day-Glo plastic fish from a street vendor,” testified a witty guy named Jef on Facebook, “but that’s exactly what I did. The seller said he found it in someone’s trash. He wanted 50 cents for it, but I talked him up to a dollar. The best part is the expression on the fish’s face. It’s from Edvard Munch’s The Scream.” I bring this testimony to your attention, Taurus, because I feel it’s good role-modeling for you. In the coming days, I bet you won’t know exactly what you’re looking for until you find it. This prize may not be highly valued by anyone else but you. And it will amuse you and be of use to you in just the right ways.

GEMINI May21–June20 Where are Chinese gooseberries grown? In New Zealand. What is a camel’s hair brush made of? Squirrel fur. When England and France waged their Hundred Years’ War, how long did it last? 116 years. When do Russians celebrate their October Revolution? In November. Trick answers like these are likely to be a recurring theme for you in the coming weeks, Gemini. That’s why I advise you to not be a Master of the Obvious.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22 In accordance with the astrological omens, I recommend you indulge in any or all of the following exercises. 1. Dedicate an entire day to performing acts of love. 2. Buy yourself flowers, sing yourself a song, and tell yourself a story about why you’re so beautiful. 3. Explain your deeply felt opinion with so much passion and logic that you change the mind of a person who had previously disagreed with you. 4. Make a pilgrimage to a sacred spot you want to be influenced by. 5. Buy a drink for everyone in a bar or cafe.

“Dear Rob: I saw a photo of you recently, and I realized that you have a scar on your face. I hope you don’t mind me telling you it resembles an ancient Mayan hieroglyph that means ‘Builder of Bridges for Those Who Are Seeking Home.’ Did you know this? If so, do you think it’s an accurate title for what you do? - Renegade Leo Scholar.” Dear Scholar: Thanks for your observation. I don’t know if I fully deserve the title “Builder of Bridges for Those Who Are Seeking Home,” but it does describe the role I’m hoping to play for Leos. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for your tribe to clarify and cultivate your notion of home.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 Author Clarissa Pinkola Estés encourages us to purge any tendencies we might have to think of ourselves as hounded animals, angry, wounded victims, leaky vessels aching to be filled, or broken creatures yearning for rescue. It so happens that now is a perfect time for you to perform this purgation. You have maximum power to revise your self-image so that it resounds with more poise, self-sufficiency and sovereignty.

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22 I used to scoff at people who play the lottery. The chance of winning big is almost nil. Why not invest one’s hopes in more pragmatic schemes to generate money? But my opinion softened a bit when the planet Jupiter made a lucky transit to an aspect in my personal horoscope. It really did seem like my chances of winning the lottery

were unusually high. I started dreaming about the educational amusements I’d pursue if I got a huge influx of cash. I opened my mind to expansive future possibilities that I had previously been closed to. So even though I didn’t actually get a windfall during this favorable financial phase, I was glad I’d entertained the fantasy. In alignment with current astrological omens, Libra, here’s the moral of the story for you: Meditate on what educational amusements you’d seek if you had more money.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 In the early stages of Johnny Cash’s development as a musician, his mother hired a coach to give him singing lessons. But after a few meetings, the teacher counseled him to quit. Johnny’s style was so unique, the seasoned pro thought it better not to tamper with his natural sound. I hesitate to offer you comparable advice, Scorpio. I’m a big believer in the value of enhancing one’s innate talents with training and education. On the other hand, my assessment of your destiny between now and October 2018 impels me to offer a suggestion: It may be useful for you to give some credence to the perspective of Johnny Cash’s voice coach. Make sure you guard and revere your distinctiveness.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 I used to nurture a grudge against Tony Pastorini. He was the high school math teacher who kicked me out of the extracurricular Calculus Club because my proofs were too “intuitive and unorthodox.” The shock of his rejection drove me away from a subject I had been passionate about. Eventually, though, I came to realize what a good deed he had done. It would have been a mistake for me to keep specializing in math—I was destined to study literature and psychology and mythology—but it took Pastorini to correct my course. Now, Sagittarius, I invite you to make a similar shift of attitude. What debt of gratitude do you owe a person you have thought of as a source of frustration or obstruction?

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 In the lore of ancient Greek mythology, the god Prometheus stole fire from his fellow deities and sneakily gave it to us humans. Before our patron provided us with this natural treasure, we poor creatures had no access to it. As I gaze out at your possibilities in the coming months, Capricorn, I foresee you having Promethean inclinations. Your ability to bestow blessings and spread benevolence and do good deeds will be at a peak. Unlike Prometheus, however, I don’t expect you’ll get into trouble for your generosity. Just the opposite!

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 Here’s a parable you may find useful. An armchair explorer is unexpectedly given a chance to embark on an adventure she has only read and dreamed about. But she hesitates on the brink of seizing her opportunity. She asks herself, “Do I really want to risk having ragged reality corrupt the beautiful fantasy I’ve built up in my mind’s eye?” In the end she takes the gamble. She embarks on the adventure. And ragged reality does, in fact, partially corrupt her beautiful fantasy. But it also brings her unexpected lessons that partially enhance the beautiful fantasy.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 “A game of chess is usually a fairy tale of 1,001 blunders,” said chess grandmaster Savielly Tartakower, a Pisces. “It is a struggle against one’s own errors,” he added. “The winner of the game is the player who makes the next-to-last mistake.” I think this is excellent counsel during the current phase of your astrological cycle, Pisces. It’s time to risk bold moves, because even if they’re partly or wholly mistaken, they will ultimately put you in a good position to succeed in the long run. Here’s a further point for your consideration. Remember the philosopher Rene Descartes’ famous dictum, “Cogito ergo sum”? It’s Latin for “I think, therefore I am.” Tartakower countered this with, “Erro ergo sum,” which is “I err, therefore I am.”

Homework: Meditate on death not as the end of physical life, but as a metaphor for shedding what’s outworn. In that light, what’s the best death you’ve © Copyright 2017 experienced? freewillastrology.com.

OPINION

Voilà! The county gets money and oversight jobs without fear of litigation. The legal (licensed) growers get to sell their goods in the county stores. The illegal (unlicensed, unmitigated) growers get a perpetual slap on the collective hand and continue sales on the lucrative black market. The rest of us tax-paying, non-growing, nonusing citizens get nothing but the status quo: fear of fire in the hills; fear of poisonous environmental degradation; fear of doped-up drivers running us off our “private” roads, for which the “bad dudes” do not pay their road assessments, but transport all of their supplies, goods, and workers.

It appears that the cannabis industry has done a terrific job, with its well-oiled and monied PR machine, of keeping the lid on any news which has a whiff of negativity. (Witness the Cannifornian hosted on the Sentinel’s website and advertised as a “product” of the Bay Area News Group and other digital outlets who have visions of golden geese dancing in their heads. And, of course, the “warm and fuzzy” ads hosted by Good Times.) There is no controversy because there is no light on the subject.

NEWS SET TWIST Tom Miller leaves Don Quixote’s to book Michael’s on Main, amid shifts in the music venue scene BY AARON CARNES

FIELDING QUESTIONS A thriving black market for cannabis would imperil the newly legalized framework. Officials from

around the state aren’t sure how to crack down—and whether or not they should be asking the feds for help.

Root Force

With some counties seeking DEA help, does California need a crackdown in order for cannabis to thrive? BY TOM GOGOLA

W

hen Southern California Congressmember Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) introduced an amendment earlier this year to slash funds to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) devoted to cannabis eradication, he had Colorado in mind more than California. Lieu, a frequent and outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, offered his budget amendment to address “a pretty idiotic scenario” in Colorado, says Lieu’s chief of staff, Marc Cevasco. “You have taxpayers who are paying to fund two sides of a battle over marijuana,” says Cevasco. The legalization-leader state of Colorado is angling to reap a pot-tax bonanza

even as the federal government has set out to kill the very plant that would contribute to state tax coffers. Trump, Cevasco says, has ceded the question of a cannabis crackdown to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, adding that Sessions “has been kind of militant about it. And it seems like it’s getting worse and not better.” The enforcement-agencies-atodds dynamic plays out in California, too, highlighting an irony in the post-Proposition 64 era of a state where pot politics and eradication priorities are decidedly in flux. Some counties in California have continued to accept DEA eradication monies, but now that same cash is helping support the California push toward legalization—even as

the DEA is committed to holding up a federal ban on medical and recreational cannabis. Prop 64 legalized recreational use of cannabis in California last November, and it’s gearing up for full implementation in the new year with a newly regulated marketplace. But in order for that regulated market to thrive, law enforcement will need to eradicate—or at least substantially trim back—black market cannabis. And generally speaking, the price of legal cannabis can’t be higher than that on the black market, for the simple reason that people will buy cheaper weed where they can. Although Santa Cruz County has not been taking federal anticannabis money or working >12

Tom Miller has booked bands in Santa Cruz County since the late ’70s, first at O.T. Price’s Music Hall in Soquel for a decade, and later for Henfling’s, Highway 9’s roadside tavern in Ben Lomond. When he started working at Don Quixote’s International Music Hall, he was bringing acts from every corner of the world— Scotland, Hawaii, Spain, the Sahara Desert, the Appalachian Mountains. “We tried to bring the world to our community,” Miller says. But Don Quixote’s, now under the ownership of Bradd Barkin, is in the process of switching its name to Flynn’s Cabaret and Steakhouse, and its booker of 13 years has moved on. “It was time for me to leave, so I left,” Miller says. As Barkin takes over as booker at the Felton venue, other local music venues are re-examining how they operate, as well—Santa Cruz’s Rio Theatre, for instance, is booking fewer shows these days, amid increased costs and steeper competition. Miller, meanwhile, has found himself a new gig booking shows at Michael’s On Main in Soquel, where he hopes to bring a lot of the same acts he’s developed relationships with over the years, continuing a tradition of eclectic sounds that include Americana, world music and indie rock. His first show will be jazz fusion legend Brand X at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14. “He’s done some really excellent work in Santa Cruz, bringing all this diversity in the world of music to Santa Cruz, and exposing Santa Cruz as a community, and raising the bar,” says Michael’s on Main owner Michael Harrison, who purchased the longtime restaurant with his wife Colleen Harrison last December. Michael’s on Main has already had live music in some capacity for roughly a decade, often bringing in local bands to jam around dinnertime. Since the Harrisons took over, they say they’ve made live music a priority, going after more established acts, and in April, Harrison started Grateful Sundays, an evening devoted to the music of the Grateful Dead, which has been a hit, he says. >14

NEWS ROOT FORCE <11 with the feds on eradication, many other California counties do. Recently, the DEA was a lead agency in a series of Sacramento raids that yielded 7,500 illegal plants, plus some weapons, as reported by the Sacramento Bee. And officials from a variety of federal agencies helped with major busts over the summer in the counties of Mendocino, Lassen and Calaveras. Additionally, the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office receives cannabis eradication funds from the DEA and, until recent years, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office did too. So this all begs the question: Is the DEA’s presence in California actually helping the state clear out its illegal

grows to make way for legalization? “It’s a fair point, an interesting development,” says Cevasco, with a laugh. “In an ideal scenario, we’d all be rowing in the same direction. If the DEA is actually assisting the state of California to set up a legal marketplace, [Lieu] would approve of that. In a weird, ironic way, this is kind of divine justice.” Lieu’s amendment sought to extract $16 million in cannabis eradication funds, says Cevasco, out of a Department of Justice (DOJ) budget that comes in at around $300 million annually. While Lieu’s effort was essentially a symbolic exercise in futility—given the DOJ’s discretion in how it spends its budget—a similar amendment from him passed the House in

2015 with backing from liberal Democrats and right-leaning, selfidentified “strict constitutionalists” and even support from Paul Ryan, (R-Wisconsin). It’s “a strange alliance,” Cevasco says, that has yielded some nonbinding victories for pro-cannabis constituents. Cevasco says that in the best available light, the effort may build some momentum for next year’s budget fight—which will take place after California has launched fullthrottle into legal cannabis. Locally, Sgt. Chris Clark says deputies from the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office are keeping in step with a larger statewide trend of cannabis enforcement, and it will take a balanced approach, he says, for “the legalization of >16

NEWS BRIEFS VOUCH FOR ’EM After years on the waitlist for a Section 8 voucher, a lowincome renter might sigh with relief when he or she finally secures what seems like a winning ticket to an affordable place to live. But about half the time, that voucher runs out before he or she can find a home that will accept them, says Jenny Panetta, the Housing Authority of Santa Cruz County’s executive director. “It’s really hard to find housing, but if you are homeless and you have a voucher, it’s so much harder,” Panetta told a small crowd gathered at the Homeless Services Center for a discussion sponsored by Smart Solutions to Homelessness. Midway through Affordable Housing Week, Panetta outlined plans to help people get housing with their new vouchers, as well as the local challenges for Section 8 that lie ahead. Robyn McKeen, project manager for Smart Path, detailed plans to help the homeless navigate

a network of services. Local housing philanthropist Sibley Simon explained his plan to build a 100-unit complex within the footprint of Homeless Services Center. Panetta—no relation to Congressmember Jimmy— says many of the new Section 8 holders that are just now getting their vouchers have been waiting in line since 2008. There are 4,500 households using vouchers, she says, and 400 more are currently looking for a place with a new voucher. Those voucher holders get turned away by one landlord after another, in spite of a team of volunteers and staffers working on their behalf to build relationships with landlords. Panetta says the Housing Authority’s been working on solutions, including with a new program via the All-In Landlord Partnership called Spruce Up that brings in volunteers to fix up a unit if the landlord agrees to rent to Section 8 tenants in return. The Housing Authority has also been running a 20-household pilot program that Panetta plans to expand in the new year. Although she and her team are still ironing out

the details, the new effort, dubbed the Landlord Incentive Program, operates rather like a guardian co-signing for any other new tenant. The program, with support from the county’s local governments, guarantees up to $2,500 for a new Section 8 tenant to a landlord for costs that include damage and missing rent. “We spend a lot of time convincing landlords that our tenants are as good as freemarket tenants,” she says. “Now they’re better. Ours come with a guarantee. What other tenants come with a guarantee?” Panetta says that in the past there were occasional challenges with Section 8 tenants, but those have since been remedied by better supporting renters and improving dialogue with landlords, she says. Even before the incentive program’s official 2018 launch, the Housing Authority will be dealing with a surprising twist from U.S. government: against all evidence, the Department of Housing and Urban Development lowered its estimation of fair market rents for Santa Cruz County by a few

percentage points, even as a housing crisis ravages through the county. That change reduces the value of each housing voucher. Panetta says the Housing Authority has started crunching the numbers and will appeal the decision by December, hoping to hear back within a few months, adding that she’ll have more information in the next year. Each Section 8 voucher pays the established fair market rent to a landlord—not necessarily the listed price for a given unit. The tenant pays 30 percent of their income toward the rent. The voucher covers the rest. Simon, executive director of New Way Homes, has gotten to know the Section 8 landscape well through 180/2020, a project he helped start to end chronic homelessness. If Section 8 holders keep getting the doors slammed in their faces, he hopes his plans for an apartment complex to prioritize those in need will meet pent-up demand. “If Jenny can’t get landlords to accept vouchers for housing,” he says, “I’m going to build the housing.” JACOB PIERCE

INTERMISSION Tom Miller, who booked music at Don Quixote’s for 13 years, has left the Felton venue, soon to be renamed Flynn’s Cabaret and Steakhouse.

With Miller on board, Harrison says that that Michael’s on Main will become a major musical hub for Santa Cruz County. There will be two stages: a newer, seated listening room in the front that allows for 80 people, and another stage at the bar, where shows have always been, that can hold about 150. Miller and Harrison are shooting to have live music most nights of the week, with seated room shows primarily on the weekdays and bar room shows on the weekends. “It could be any kind of music. It doesn’t have to be just singer-songwriters. It can be throat singers from Tuva playing traditional Tuvan instruments,” Miller says. Harrison plans to remodel the venue, hoping to increase the capacity for shows in the bar area by the spring. In Felton, Barkin also says he’ll renovate to increase capacity, something that he suggests can be done by taking out a wall in the middle of the hall. He’ll change the

name from Don Quixote’s to Flynn’s after the remodel, he says. Barkin says he plans to rely on a lot of outside production companies to bring shows to him. Not committed to any genre in particular, he wants to bring in bigger acts, and believes his venue can attract more big-ticket shows in the $50 range. “I can’t continue to have $10 dollar shows in here for people that may not draw,” Barkin says. While Harrison takes Michael’s on Main in more of an entertainment-oriented direction, Barkin has a different recipe for Flynn’s. “The business plan is this is a restaurant with a music venue, not a music venue with a restaurant,” says Barkin, who thinks Flynn’s will soon be “a nice, high-quality five-star restaurant.” It isn’t only smaller local venues that are shifting their approaches. Rio Theatre owner Laurence Bedford says he’s slowly moved away from booking shows himself over the past three years. Lately, he’s booking almost nothing on his own, counting on production companies like

Snazzy Productions and Folkyeah to plan shows and sell tickets, while he operates the 685-seat venue more like a rental house. The music business, he explains, can be unpredictable. Changes in the setup of guarantees—the minimum sum a band expects to get paid—he says, have made margins slimmer than ever for promoters. “There is a thing with booking your own shows all the time: You never really know how well it’s going to do. You’re not always sure it’ll sell out. The guarantees have gotten higher,” Bedford says. “Doing really well one time and losing twice doesn’t really work well when you have bills every month. I found myself bidding against people I do other shows with. We decided that it wasn’t worth going there, so we just decided to support them.” At the same time, John Sandidge, who runs Snazzy Productions, says that in the past five years, there’s been an increase in non-local production companies coming to Santa Cruz and booking shows. Many of them book packages of shows, sometimes

all over the state, making it more difficult for mom-and-pop production companies to compete. “We bring in more big acts than any town our size,” Sandidge says. “So the big money smells success down here.” Bigger companies, Sandidge says, can offer bigger guarantees. But even if ownership and booking arrangements change, Sandidge says music fans often don’t notice the difference, as many of the same acts keep coming through town. As the industry evolves, the Rio has been branching further outside the musical realm. Bedford has been hosting more films and talks like lectures sponsored by the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. This month, the 68-year-old venue has seven events on the calendar—three films, two concerts, the Planet Cruz Comedy show and a fundraiser for Native Animal Rescue. “We’ve become a place that facilitates other types of things besides music,” Bedford says, “in order to stay alive.”

NEWS ROOT FORCE <12 marijuana to function properly.” State lawmakers, such as Senator Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg), who’s supported the thrust of Prop 64, have pushed for an end to illegal grows. McGuire has many such grows in his Northern California district, which includes the so-called “Emerald Triangle” of Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity counties. The illicit grows pop up on occasion along the banks of creeks that support endangered species, most notably coho and steelhead salmon. Santa Cruz County is knee-deep in similar environmental issues, with an environmental impact report (EIR) on cannabis cultivation currently underway. Cannabis advocates say that if the county’s Board of Supervisors doesn’t take the right approach, overly cumbersome regulations will send growers into the same black market that sheriff’s deputies have been trying to uproot. Comments on the draft EIR were due last month. A more permissive regulatory option outlined in the document would allow for grows in areas like Bonny Doon near the coast, where they might otherwise be prohibited. With 2018 quickly approaching, the marketplace has begun taking shape. The Board of Supervisors began paving the way for legal cannabis sales last week, when it became one of the only counties in California to approve draft regulations letting county dispensaries sell recreational herb in the new year. But no matter how thoughtful the new rules, there will likely still be those who will skirt the law to avoid getting into the regulatory weeds. For better or for worse, cannabis attorney Trevor Luxon says, some growers will decide that they don’t have the means to create a legal business, and try to do things their own way instead. “There are thousands of people in the Santa Cruz Mountains that have relied on cannabis for income for years—their entire lives, in some cases—and that’s not going to go away,” Luxon says. “A lot of them are not in the position to jump into the legal marijuana market, because it’s going to cost a lot to set up a legal marijuana business.” Additional reporting by Georgia Johnson.

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.

SHOW OF HANDS John Carpenter comes to

Santa Cruz on Sunday, Nov. 5, to perform music from his films, which are collected in the new album 'Anthology.'


The Accidental

Auteur

With a musical performance by the legendary director and composer at the Catalyst, and two of his best films showing at the Del Mar, everything’s coming up John Carpenter in Santa Cruz this weekend—just like it is everywhere else. Now, the man behind the legend explains why he never expected to hear the word ‘Carpenteresque’

P

BY STEVE

Today, of course, it’s considered one of the best horror films of all time, and it has lost none of the power that enthralled its first audiences. If anything, Carpenter’s empathetic and realistic depiction of the teenage girls who face off against Myers (including, most famously, Jamie Lee Curtis) has made it stand out even more over the years from the hundreds of imitators that have come in its wake. The same pattern of initial critical hostility overcome by appreciative audiences—followed, eventually, by a full-on cultural lovefest—emerged with most of Carpenter’s best films, from his 1974 debut Dark Star (originally his student film at USC) to his 1976 pioneering siege movie Assault on Precinct 13, through 1980’s The Fog, 1982’s The Thing, 1983’s Stephen King adaptation Christine, 1986’s Big Trouble in Little China, 1987’s Prince of Darkness, 1988’s They Live and 1995’s In the Mouth of Madness. Incredibly, all of these films recovered from their initial critical write-offs to find cult

followings and go on to be considered classics. (Only his two warmest and most immediately accessible movies, 1981’s Escape From New York and 1984’s Starman, truly got their due right out of the gate.) At the same time, thanks to the fact that Carpenter composed the pioneering electronic scores for most of his own movies, “Carpenteresque” has also become a popular adjective in the music world. Music journalist Aaron Vehling described it earlier this year as “the go-to descriptor for dark-tinged, arpeggiator-heavy synth scores.” Just this month, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and Atticus Ross released a cover version of Carpenter’s famous theme for Halloween, becoming the umpteenth musicians to do so over the years. While it is most often covered by goth-type bands like Electric Hellfire Club and Celldweller, it’s also been tackled by artists as eclectic as cellist Tina Guo and German classical guitarist Leif M. Schaffland.

op culture is having a John Carpenter moment. Earlier this year, reviews for Jeremy Gillespie’s horror film The Void excitedly described it as “Carpenteresque,” the same phrase that writer-director Jeff Nichols used to describe his acclaimed science fiction thriller from last year, Midnight Special. Sci-fi and PALOPOLI horror films are suddenly awash in the steely light-blue shroud that was the trademark look of Carpenter’s early films four decades ago. Normally, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a director with a filmography like Carpenter’s acknowledged as hugely influential. But for some reason, it’s always taken a long time for Hollywood to catch up with him. Even his 1978 breakthrough film Halloween—the low-budget tale of mysterious killer Michael Myers that changed the industry forever by becoming the first megahit indie movie—was dismissed by most critics.

“What I do as a director and what I do

as a musician are very similar. I’m just the luckiest human being on the earth. Because I’ve been directing for many years, and I do love cinema, but I get to have kind of a different career—late in my life. And it’s fabulous.” - JOHN CARPENTER <19 In the last few years, Carpenter has embraced his musical legacy, releasing his non-soundtrack debut album Lost Themes in 2015, which he recorded with his son Cody Carpenter and his godson Daniel Davies. Lost Themes II followed the next year, and remarkably, critics didn’t have to take their time coming around to either record; both received positive reviews for staying true to—and building on— the electronic sound of Carpenter’s movie music. This year, Carpenter is revisiting his original scores with the release of the Anthology: Movie Themes 19741998 album and the subsequent tour that comes to the Catalyst on Sunday, Nov. 5. (In a well-timed Carpenter tie-in, the Midnights at the Del Mar series will be presenting The Thing on Friday, Nov. 3, and Escape From New York on Saturday, Nov. 4.) He even directed a music video for “Christine” that recaptures the atmospherics of the movie, with the sinister steel of the iconic car set against chilly, dreamlike streets. I spoke to the 69-year-old Carpenter last week by phone about his current tour (on which he is backed by his son and godson), and discovered that pretty much the only person who doesn’t put much stock in John Carpenter’s immense cultural influence is John Carpenter. Self-effacing and seemingly somewhat ambivalent about his

own work, he was, for instance, skeptical about my insistence that “Carpenteresque” is really a word that people use. Put in the somewhat odd but very entertaining position of having to prove to one of my favorite directors that his stock is at an all-time high, I pulled out my ace in the hole, reading to him from the transcript of a recent interview I did with Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators of the Netflix show Stranger Things—which is certainly one of the hottest zeitgeist properties out right now. The Duffer brothers’ love of all things John Carpenter is fairly well known, but in particular I read him what Matt told me about why the character of Mike has the movie poster for The Thing in his basement on the show: “Even though it would be pretty much impossible for that poster to be in the boy’s basement, we put it in there anyway. You can see it when they’re playing D&D. Oh man, we were obsessed with that movie when we were in high school. There’s something about the creature design. I don’t think anyone’s been able to pull it off as successfully since. That’s the scariest creature design. The fact that they did that in camera is incredible. We did strive to do as much as we could in camera, and we couldn’t get close to achieving what they achieved. It really makes you respect those guys and what they were able to pull off.”


THE ACCIDENTAL AUTEUR

I know that ‘The Thing’ got a lot of flak when it came out. Does it feel like a vindication to hear a quote like that from the makers of one of the biggest pop culture phenomena of the last couple years? JOHN CARPENTER: That’s very, very nice. It feels great. I can’t think of one thing that’s wrong with that. (Laughs.) Look, I took a lot of shit for that movie. But I kind of know why, I think. Because what I did not put in that movie was any hope. And audiences and critics, that’s what they needed back then. They needed hope, and I just cheated them of it. So I’m a bad guy.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen popular opinion of a movie do a complete 180-degree shift the way it did with your version of ‘The Thing.’ Reviewers were so hostile at the time, and now it’s revered almost universally as one of the best movies of the ’80s. I don’t understand why it did that turn. Do you know?

Well, thank you. That one was a lot of fun, we had a good time.

I remember someone asking you around that time if the fascist aliens were a metaphor and you said something like, ‘No, they’re Republicans.’ Yeah, well it’s true! I mean, come on now! I was enraged at the time, I had to make this political statement. So I did it under cover

Oh man, yeah, that fight. And now the line “I’ve come here to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I’m all out of bubblegum” is quoted all the time. I know! It worked out alright for us.

Did an awareness that these films have found big cult followings have anything to do with the timing of the ‘Anthology’ album and tour? My son and godson and I, we realized last year when we were playing concerts around the world that what audiences really loved was the movie music. So I thought, why don’t we do an album of movie music? I mean, why not? And here we are. Anthology is an album that encompasses my movie career from the ’70s to the ’90s. It’s scenes from my films that were chosen for various reasons. We also re-recorded music from Jack Nitzsche and from Ennio Morricone. So it’s not just me as a composer, but others, too. So we’re going to play that live—attempt to play it live.

What’s the difference for you between playing these themes live and recording them in the studio? Well, they’re both great, but I get to work with my son and godson on this. And I’m telling you, there’s nothing like it. I didn’t ever think I’d have the chance to do this. Daniel, my godson, is a guitar virtuoso, and my son is a keyboard virtuoso. So I’m just in the middle, playing really simple stuff and dancing around and being happy. That’s my job.

You did once say, ‘I can play just about any keyboard, but I can’t read or write a note.” That’s the way it is. It’s true. I know my own worth as a musician—I have limited chops.

Does that have anything to do with why your music sounds different than other composers’ work? I don’t think so. It just means I have my limitations, and they’re very obvious to most people.

You feel more confident as a director?

NOVEMBER 1-7, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Confident? Ehhh, well, it’s all kind of equal to me. In other words, what I do as a director and what I do as a musician are very similar. I’m just the luckiest human being on the earth.

Well thank you. I had a great time making it. It was really fun. Although I had to stay up all night, which is a little tough. Several months ago, we were talking to someone in advertising

or something, and they said, ‘You know what you ought to do is make a video. Not a music video where you’re performing, but a story video.’ And I thought, ‘Wow, OK.’ So we talked about it, and the first thought we had was, ‘Let’s do Christine stalking somebody.’ And it just worked from there.

When you were putting together ‘Anthology’ and going back and listening to soundtracks of yours that you maybe hadn’t listened to for a while, what surprised you the most? Well, I now know—and don’t ask me what it is, because I’m not going to tell you—what my musical signature is. I discovered it, and I went “Oh really? That’s it? Really! How disappointing.” But I now know what it is that I relied on to get me through when I was doing this music. So that was interesting. But I really truly enjoy a lot of the music that we play. It’s fun. Some of it’s scary. The theme from Starman is much more hopeful and sweet, and we did one of those. A lot of it rocks out, I have to be frank with you. The rhythm section of the group I’m playing with is Tenacious D’s rhythm section. They are unbelievably great.

How’d you hook up with the guys from Tenacious D? Daniel knew them, and hung out with them a bit. He loved how they sounded and the kind of stuff they did, so we all got together. We’re having a blast.

When you did the ‘Lost Themes’ albums, was it to get a little bit of freedom to compose without having to base the music on the visuals of a film? Well, you know what, I should say yes. Or I can tell you the truth.

Oh, I definitely pick the truth! OK, well, the truth is that Lost Themes is an extended improvisation with my son and I playing. We’d play video games, we’d go down to the music room and improvise a little music, come back and play video games, go back and improvise a little music. This went on and on for a while, so I had a whole bunch of music. He went off to Japan, and I was hanging around here, and I got a new music attorney. And she said, “You got anything new?” I thought, “Well, I have this stuff here,” so I sent it to her. A couple of months later, I had a record deal! What the hell is that? That’s what happened. I didn’t plan it. SONIC CARPENTERS John Carpenter is backed on his current tour by his son, Cody Carpenter (left), and his godson,

No. God, no. They didn’t pay any attention to it. It was just on the movie, and everybody accepted it. Nobody said anything to me about it, necessarily, so I thought, “OK, as long as they don’t throw shit at the screen, I’m happy.”

That was an era when

composers were doing a lot of epic, sweeping scores—John Williams’ ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Superman,’ Jerry Goldsmith’s ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture.’ Of course, ‘Halloween’ was a very different movie, but was the intimacy and rawness of the theme a reaction to that at all? No, it was absolutely functional. Because I came from student films, and this was a low-budget movie. Low-budget movies and student films, they don’t have any money. They don’t have enough money to get an orchestra or a composer. So somebody who is cheap and fast has to do the music. And that’s me. Halloween took three days for the

score. I did five or six pieces, and then cut them in at various places in the movie. We didn’t have any more money than that.

Now all of these darker gothtype bands love to cover your music, especially the ‘Halloween’ theme. Has that surprised you? Did you ever expect to be a goth icon? Ha, well, I don’t know about that. But it always surprises me when something of mine shows up. I’m just delighted by it, it’s great.

There are a lot of those covers now. I’m sure you know that.

It’s bewildering. I mean, I don’t know why. But I’m trying not to ask. Just go with it. Just go with the flow, that’s all I do. JOHN CARPENTER performs at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5, at the Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave. in Santa Cruz. The show is 16 and over; tickets are $39.50 and up. catalystclub.com.

was really what put you on the map as a composer. I’ve read about what the initial response to the movie was like, but I’ve never heard anything about the early reaction to the music. Did anyone realize that it was going to go down as one of the most famous horror movie themes of all time?

What’s it like to see your work and influence rise and fall over the years, and then all of a sudden have it rise sharply like this?

there are around 16 artists that work regularly at an art collective. They are untrained, and use art as a means of income and to pass down their culture, history and folktales. Their work can best be described as folk art, though it’s by no means typical. Jackals, elephants, and zebras dance across a canvas in a stunning overlap of vibrant colors and patterns depicting some of the most beautiful landscape and wildlife in the world. “It’s a cultural exchange,” she says. “The value of the exchange is wherever we meet people from a different place, we get to meet and hopefully understand each other better.” Though Flynn has a plethora of activities planned, including going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the redwoods, she brought the Batswana (the term for citizens of Botswana) artists to Santa Cruz first and foremost for the art auction. She plans on selling 15 paintings, 35 prints, three decorated plates and a Botswana safari trip for two. Several people have tried to coerce her into selling some pieces before the auction, including myself, but she won’t have it. This will be the first time San art will be on exhibition in the U.S., says Flynn, though some artwork made a brief appearance on the tails of British Airways airplanes. Right now, her main concern is getting Ndodonyane Ditsheko, Xhoma Simon, and Jan John to Santa Cruz. Traveling through Heathrow Airport is a feat in itself, but imagine doing it without understanding English, never having been on an airplane, or knowing what a terminal is. The Bushmen speak Setswana, a clicking language, and see more zebras and lions than cars and buses. They will travel on a 17-hour flight to the U.S., and Flynn says they are the first Batswana people to travel to America. “I just can’t imagine what they are going to think when they see the aquarium, when they see marine life,” she says, adding that they have never seen the ocean, let alone

what’s in it. “I want to show them our diversity, even in this little place. I want to show them who we are.” The Batswana art techniques are not being taught or passed on through the generations, and it’s predominantly the elderly who are painting. But once they die, painting techniques, heritage and history die with them. With this in mind, Flynn hosted art auctions in Botswana on behalf of the village. After hearing that the San teen pregnancy and dropout rate are the highest in the country, she planned the Santa Cruz auction to fund a year-long art workshop to support young San girls and continue the lineage of painting. “The girls will sit with the elders, paint and learn about their stories in a supportive environment,” Flynn says. “A nurse will be there and can give them a safe place to talk about their challenges.” The San people are believed to be humanity’s ancestors, the first Homo sapiens dating back more than 30,000 years ago. But they live in poverty and are often identified by racial and cultural stereotypes perpetrated by commercial media and in movies like The Gods Must Be Crazy, and based on outdated assumptions and generalizations of indigenous African people. In bringing them here, Flynn hopes to dispel assumptions about them and their lifestyle, while also giving back to her ancestors and the people that welcomed and gave her so much—including her Batswana dog, Cocoa Puff, who lives with her in their westside home. “These people, even though they are an ancient tribe, are not a stereotyped group living in leather loincloths,” Flynn says. “The best way to show that is to see the art and meet them.” The auction will be at the MAH from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. Tickets are $50, including food and beverages, and are available at the door or online at tinyurl.com/artsaveslives. For more information on the project, visit kalaharisan.org.

SHARKS OF THRASH Iron Reagan plays the Catalyst on Friday, Nov. 3.

Iron Reagan is a one-band metal marathon

28

I

’m like a shark,” says Phil “LandPhil” Hall over the phone, with a laugh. “If I stop, I’ll die.” He’s not kidding. The prolific musician is currently talking to me from his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, where he’s finishing a 27-date tour with his stoner-based death metal band, Cannabis Corpse. In December, he’ll hit the road again with his first band, the crossover thrash metal group Municipal Waste. Neatly nestled between those tours, Hall will be playing guitar with yet another band, the “sensual” crossover thrash band Iron Reagan. On Nov. 3, they join German thrash legends Kreator and American death metal heshers Thrown Into Exile for a show at the Catalyst. Spawned from the depths of

Virginia in 2012, Iron Reagan began as a project for Hall and vocalist Tony Foresta—who also sings for Municipal Waste—to record with their friend, drummer Ryan Parrish, formerly of Darkest Hour. “We made some demos, and people seemed to respond positively to it,” Hall remembers. “Then it snowballed and picked up a lot faster than we expected.” For the non-metalheads out there, the band took its name as an homage to Iron Maiden, with a nod to the thrash scene that blossomed in the 1980s. After recording the initial demo in 2012, Iron Reagan picked up guitarist Mark Bronzino of A.N.S., Kicking Spit and Mammoth Grinder. “I remember listening to their demo and thinking it was sick,” says

BY MAT WEIR

Bronzino of Iron Reagan. “More of an East Coast thrash sound, and I liked that. I originally helped them book a show in New Brunswick, and a couple months later Tony hit me up to tour.” Since that demo—released on the Oakland-based independent metal label Tankcrimes—Iron Reagan has been a whirlwind of thrashing sonic destruction. In 2013, they brought Hellbear bassist Rob Skotis into the fold, and the core lineup was solidified when Bronzino moved to second guitar. That same year, the band dropped its debut full-length Worse Than Dead, a blistering 19-song album clocking in at about 26 minutes. The following year, they released a split EP with Exhumed and a solo EP titled Spoiled Identity, then signed to Relapse Records and dropped their

second full-length, Tyranny of the Will. After another year of touring off those records, they put out yet another EP in 2015, this time with Toxic Shock. This past February saw the sharks of thrash’s third full-length release, Crossover Ministry. As all good artists should, Iron Reagan dreads repetition and decided to switch things up with their newest endeavor. From the colorful, almost psychedelic cover to a drawn-out writing process (compared to Tyranny, which was practically completely written while on a two-month tour with GWAR) and even darker songs, Crossover remains in the Iron Reagan realm of an audio flying kick to the face, while still keeping things as fresh as a new beer. “We tried to pick songs that fit together and made sense,” Bronzino says. “Musically it is a darker album, because of the state of the world, and we’re also trying not to be stagnant.” Iron Reagan also switched up its tour schedule this year. Instead of the long, massive tours as they’ve done in the past, they’ve been booking shorter chunks of shows throughout the country. Not for the faint of heart, Iron Reagan’s music features solo screaming and gang vocals. Most of their songs are roughly two minutes long, with some as short as seconds. The songs might be short, but the compressed intensity is a fission bomb of sound. It may seem like a strange sound to come from the South, but for decades Richmond has had a thriving metal scene that includes GWAR and Lamb of God. More recently, there’s been a wave of fresh musicians, including the bands Windhand and Cough. There are so many venues around town that it’s hard not to bump into a resident or touring musician. Hall says Richmond is a vibrant scene in part due to the Virginia Commonwealth University School for the Arts. Iron Reagan plans to contribute to that further with several more collaborative EPs next year, he says. “I treat it like a full-time job and I love it,” he says. Iron Reagan plays the Catalyst on Friday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m. Show is 16 and over; $18/$20.

There will be both 2D and 3D works included, using many different mediums. Participating artists are Johnny Amador, Tripura Anand, Jean Bebe, Sandra Bradshaw, Linde Fahey, Angelo Grova, Jim Klein, Dan McFadden, Donna Thompson and others.

‘THE CAT THAT CHANGED AMERICA’ Last year more than 100 mountain lions were hit by cars, and as urban sprawl increases, so does the need for safer passages connecting wildlife habitats. The new documentary The Cat That Changed America follows mountain lion P22’s journey across Los Angeles’s busiest freeways in search of a habitat. He now lives in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park, unable to safely roam, secluded from the rest of his species, and with little hope of finding a mate. The film focuses on the detrimental impacts of urbanization on mountain lions and other native species, and how the spread of rodenticides harms the environment and wildlife.

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND 7 COME 11

When Gianni Staiano got his clavinet back just a week before his group 7 Come 11 recorded their new EP, it was newly equipped with a whammy bar. The clavinet looks like a keyboard, but it has guitar strings under the keys. Stevie Wonder made it famous on his ’70s records. The whammy bar bends notes and makes everything sound awesome.

NOVEMBER 1-7, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“It completely changed the direction of the record. Totally different idea than when we went in. We ended up raging, rocking out just for fun. It’s always nice when that happens,” Staiano says.

44

This new EP, Universe Out Of Time, is an aggressive rager. Staiano also plays the organ and a moog, and runs them through effects pedals. The clavinet’s whammy, though hugely influential of the new record’s sound, wasn’t the only reason the songs came out harder-edged, particularly when compared to 2016’s dance party record Light It Up. “Those were the Obama years. It was still pretty good back then. We’re always going for the dance vibe, but things weren’t quite so fucked,” Staiano says. The group’s songs like “Nobody Wins” do address the divisiveness of the current political climate. “The only way forward is if we can all get along. We got to heal the wounds, and heal the divide. We got to come together,” Staiano says. AARON CARNES INFO: 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $6. 429-6994.

HABIB KOITÉ

WEDNESDAY 11/1 AFRICAN

HABIB KOITÉ Malian guitarist Habib Koité never formally learned how to sing or play guitar as a child. As he tells it, he just watched his parents play and sing, and it “washed off” on him. Eventually, he studied music at the National Institute of Arts in Bamako, Mali, where he graduated at the top of his class. Koité has since grown into one of Africa’s most popular musicians. His style blends the popular danssa rhythm from his native city of Keyes with Malian traditions and the global influences of his travels and collaborations. “Usually, Malian musicians play only their own ethnic music,” he has said, “but me, I go everywhere. My job is to take all these traditions and to make something with them, to use them in my music.” CJ INFO: 7 & 9 p.m. Kuumbwa Jazz, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $30/adv, $35/door. 427-2227.

FRIDAY 11/3 R&B

JACOB BANKS “Chain smoking your love/Can’t be

good for my sanity/Can’t be good for my lungs.” If that’s not a brilliant metaphor for what it feels like to be in an unhealthy relationship, I don’t know what is. It also touches on the insightful but simple lyrical style that British singer Jacob Banks spins into his song with a diverse blend of roots rock, soul, pop and just a hint of hip-hop. The songs are dark, moody, and downright dramatic at times, but Banks’ guttural and passionate voice holds them together like a rolling paper holds in tobacco. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $15/adv, $18/door. 429-4135.

ROCK

RICK DERRINGER In 1956, a nine-year-old Rick Derringer received his first guitar. By 17, Derringer had recorded “Hang On Sloopy” with the McCoys, knocking the Beatles’ “Yesterday” out of the No. 1 spot on the charts. Derringer would then join Johnny Winter to form Johnny Winter And, recording on and/or producing all of Johnny and Edgar Winter’s platinum and gold records. Did we mention he also recorded the classic jammer,

“Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo,” cowrote Hulk Hogan’s “Real American” theme song, used to hang out with Andy Warhol and produced “Weird” Al Yankovic’s first album? Now that’s rock ’n’ roll! MAT WEIR INFO: 8 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $30/adv, $35/door. 479-1854.

SATURDAY 11/4 SOUL

BERNHOFT Reggie Watts wowed the world with his incredible one-man-band looping powers years ago. But now, looping is commonplace, and songs that employ the technology have to deliver beyond the gee-whiz factor. Norwegian soul singer Jarle Bernhoft, who performs under the moniker Bernhoft, has toured relentlessly with his pedals and feel-good songs for a while. He experiments, but there’s always a groove, and he frequently jumps into a falsetto voice that can go up against any ’70s AM radio singer. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $18/adv, $22/door. 479-1854.

BE OUR GUEST RENÉ MARIE

JOLIE HOLLAND AND SAMANTHA PARTON

Jazz vocalist René Marie is a worldclass singer in the style of her heroes, Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington. But Marie’s craft doesn’t begin and end with jazz. She stretches across genre divides and pulls from folk, classical, blues, country, pop and more to create a vivid musical tapestry. Marie’s latest offering, the Grammy-nominated 2016 Sound of Red, features all-original material and sees the artist’s compositional and songwriting skills on display. The album adds a new dimension to Marie’s already-impressive resume and further establishes her as one of the great contemporary jazz vocalists. CAT JOHNSON

NOVEL IDEAS Of the five players that comprise Boston’s Novel Ideas, three of them contribute to the songwriting. If I were to guess, I’d say they were Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. OK, not really. The group is comprised of childhood friends from Boston, all relatively new to the music scene, but damn if they don’t channel those great ’70s country-folk singer-songwriters. The songs are melancholy, gorgeous,

and punctuated by absolutely lush harmonies. The latest record, which is self-titled, isn’t a big departure for the band, but they’ve really honed what’s good about their folksy formula. AC INFO: 9 p.m. Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $10. 429-6994.

TUESDAY 11/7 ROCK

HARD WORKING AMERICANS In 2013, the supergroup Hard Working Americans made a big splash in the roots-rock music world. Comprising singer-songwriter Todd Snider, Dave Schools from Widespread Panic on bass, Neal Casal of Chris Robinson Brotherhood on guitar and vocals, Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi on keyboards and Duane Trucks—younger brother of Derek—from Widespread Panic on drums, the band covered other artists’ tunes on its self-titled debut. But on the 2016 follow-up, Rest in Chaos, the band flexed its own songwriting chops, dropping an album that featured all originals, plus one cover: the late Guy Clark’s “The High Price of Inspiration.” CJ INFO: 8:30 p.m. Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $31.90. 423-8209.

The Be Good Tanyas is one of the most underappreciated roots acts of our time. Formed by Frazey Ford, Trish Klein, Samantha Parton and Jolie Holland in Vancouver, B.C. in 1999, the group has quietly released a string of enduring tunes like “The Littlest Birds” that capture the heart of the folk tradition and the working-person vibe of the outfit’s Vancouver roots. On Sunday, Parton and Holland, who has become one of the most well-known and versatile roots artists around, showcase their current collaborative efforts, including a new album, Wildflower Blues, featuring originals and covers of tunes by Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt and more. CJ

be just as true to say that Green is the life of jazz. A joyously swinging player with a deep feel for the blues, Green embodies the hard bop ethos of grit, grease and grace. He hits Santa Cruz at the end of an SFJazz residency with a prodigious trio featuring monster bassist Dezron Douglas, a protégé of alto sax legend Jackie McLean, and drummer Kenny Washington (not to be confused with the great Bay Area vocalist of the same name). Washington has contributed to several hundred albums, and is particularly associated with piano masters such as Tommy Flanagan, Cedar Walton, Walter Bishop Jr., and most prolifically Bill Charlap.

FILM

STUCCO PALACE Bria Vinaite and Brooklynn Prince, both emerging talents, star alongside Willem Dafoe in the critically acclaimed ‘The Florida Project.’

At Risk NOVEMBER 1-7, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Ambition vs. result in ‘Florida Project’ BY LISA JENSEN

50

I

t’s interesting that the new movie by up-and-coming indie darling Sean Baker is called The Florida Project. In showbiz lingo, productions are often referred to as “The (So-and-So) Project” in place of an actual title, to indicate their status as a work-in-progress, not yet completed. This pretty much sums up Baker’s movie. It’s a great idea for a story that’s been plucked too soon and put up on screen before the details in the script had a chance to ripen. Baker is making a name for himself with his offbeat experiments in guerrilla filmmaking. (His last feature film, Tangerine, was shot entirely on cell phones.) The idea here is full of promise: a view of

life as lived on the outer margins of society in the most ironic location possible—a cheap motel in the shadow of Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Baker presents a plucky band of underclass kids making up their own adventures just outside one of the most celebrated, commercial Meccas ever created for children. But as desperately as Baker wants to say something profound and insightful about the lives he depicts, the movie doesn’t quite live up to its own ambitions. Co-scripted by Baker and longtime collaborator Chris Bergoch, the movie’s central location is a garish purple stucco motel called the Magic Castle. Tourists occasionally book a

room as an alternative to the pricey accommodations at the park itself, but most of its denizens are semipermanent. Among these is six-yearold Moonie (Brooklynn Prince), who lives with her young, sporadically employed single mom Halley (Bria Vinaite), hardly more than a child herself, in the room they rent weekto-week. Moonie is a wild child who rackets around the neighborhood with her pal Scooty (Christopher Rivera) and a couple of other kids, gleefully getting into trouble. They spit on parked cars from the balcony, throw the switch that cuts off power, and vandalize a tract of abandoned, candy-colored houses—laughing

all the way. That their destructive behavior is meant to signify spontaneous youthful joy in the midst of bleakness is the movie’s first mistake; their antics are soon more obnoxious than charming. Halley and Moonie are fiercely devoted to each other, despite Halley’s utter lack of parenting skills. That default role falls to motel manager Bobby (Willem Dafoe), whose crusty demeanor conceals his genuine concern for these at-risk kids, running around unsupervised all day. Bobby gives us someone to root for, chasing off a potential pervert from the kids’ play area, and making exasperated attempts to instill a sense of responsibility in footloose Halley—even as her attempts to earn and scam rent money become more dangerous. Baker wants to make visible those struggling to survive at the deep end of the 99 percent, but he offers a chronicle of their day-to-day activities uncomplicated by any particular insight or resonance. The script feels mostly improvised; it sounds authentic, but lacks dramatic shape. Baker does capture the milieu of small, tourist-oriented mom-andpop businesses all hoping a little overflow Disney magic will rub off on them—motels called the Arabian Nights, or Futureland; a gift shop sporting a wizard’s gigantic head, hands, and pointed hat; the orangeshaped juice stand called Orange World. But these things already exist in the streets, juxtaposed alongside Disney World, with no additional commentary provided by Baker. Newcomers Vinaite (Baker found her on YouTube), Prince, and Valeria Cotto (as Moonie’s new BFF) make their characters seem real enough, but not especially engaging. (Although Mela Murder makes a strong impression as Halley’s waitress friend and neighbor, Scooty’s mom, who worries Moonie is becoming a bad influence.) Like Moonie and her pals, the movie desperately needs an authoritative voice to give it some direction. THE FLORIDA PROJECT **1/2 (out of four) Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince and Bria Vinaite. Written by Sean Baker and Chris Bergoch. Directed by Sean Baker. An A24 release. Rated R. 115 minutes.

FILM NEW THIS WEEK

NOVEMBER 1-7, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS The bad moms are back, and because they have to check all the boxes of movie clichés, this sequel sees Mila Kunis et al. get a visit from their bad moms. FYI, Daddy’s Home 2 comes out next week with exactly the same gimmick. Curse you, Meet the Parents, for creating the idea that if you can’t think of a good idea for a dysfunctional-family comedy sequel, you can just stunt-cast the parents instead. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore direct. Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines and Christine Baranski co-star as the bad grandmoms. (R) 104 minutes. (SP)

52

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER Imagine Fatal Attraction remade by the director of bizarre arthouse hit The Lobster—with a touch of Joel Edgerton’s underrated The Gift thrown in for good measure—and you’ve got The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Colin Farrell plays Dr. Steven Murphy, a prominent surgeon with a seemingly perfect family (including wife Nicole Kidman) and life, who takes teenaged Martin (Barry Keoghan) under his wing. Everything goes great, Martin does not act progressively creepier, and revelations from the past definitely do not threaten to shatter Murphy’s domestic bliss and rip his life apart. J/k! He totally does, and they totally do. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. Co-starring Sunny Suljian and Raffey Cassidy. (R) 120 minutes. (SP) LBJ Sure, we could debate Lyndon B. Johnson’s legacy—should it be more weighted toward his pioneering civil rights efforts, or his terrible mishandling of the Vietnam War? But there are far more historically pressing questions here. Like, for instance, which casting in this biopic is weirder: Woody Harrelson as LBJ, or Jennifer Jason Leigh as Lady Bird Johnson? Rob Reiner directs. Jeffrey Donovan and Richard Jenkins co-star. (R) 98 minutes. (SP) THOR: RAGNAROK Hiring the director of the hilarious What

We Do in the Shadows to helm a blockbuster Thor movie is possibly Marvel’s most unexpected and genius move yet. Let’s face it, there is nothing interesting about the character of Thor unless there’s comedy being milked out of his good-natured cluelessness. This movie seems to be basically nothing but that. Yay! What’s the plot? Something about infinity stones! Who even cares? Taika Waititi directs. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Cate Blanchett. (PG-13) 130 minutes. MIDNIGHTS AT DEL MAR It’s a tribute to master of horror John Carpenter this weekend. Friday brings Carpenter’s 1982 remake of The Thing; see this week’s cover story to understand what Carpenter had to go through before people came around to realizing that this movie is a masterpiece. Saturday, it’s Escape From New York, one of the only Carpenter films that has always gotten a lot of love from both critics and audiences. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, but these two films also represent the best performances of Kurt Russell’s career. (SP)

developing sympathetic characters and tuning into the subtle absurdities of life. Starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. (PG-13) 121 minutes. (LJ) BLADE RUNNER 2049 You don’t have to have an encyclopedic knowledge (or memory) of the original Blade Runner to appreciate this 30-years-later sequel to Ridley Scott’s groundbreaking sci-fi epic. The new movie tells its own story, with a (mostly) new cast of characters, although the main plot thrust here was launched in the original. Incoming director Denis Villeneuve sticks to the original theme of the first film and (more loosely) the Philip K. Dick novel that inspired it: an existential question of the meaning of life when a breed of super-strong, machine-made androids called “replicants” have been created to serve the master race of humans.. Starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista. Directed by Denis Villeneuve. (R) 163 minutes. (SP) THE FLORIDA PROJECT Reviewed this issue. (R) 115 minutes. (SP)

NOW PLAYING

GEOSTORM What would be amazing is if all the scientists in this global disaster movie were like, “Oh no, here comes a GEOSTORM!” And then a 1993 Isuzu Geo Storm drives up, and everybody goes, “Aw, actually it’s so cute, why did we stop making them?” I emailed the producers of Geostorm like 1000 times about my idea, but they still wouldn’t let me write this movie. Sad! Dean Devlin directs. Gerard Butler, Abbie Cornish and Ed Harris star. (PG-13) 110 minutes. (SP)

BATTLE OF THE SEXES Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs’ 1973 match-up comes to the big screen in Battle of the Sexes, a thoughtful and entertaining movie about gender, identity, politics, and celebrity at a pivotal cultural moment in American history. Written by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire), it was directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton—whose first film, Little Miss Sunshine, demonstrated their skill at

JIGSAW When asked about their approach to making a Saw film in 2017, the directors of this movie summed it as … “Saw for 2017.” Whoa, insightful! Don’t look now, but Get Out was also “Get Out for 2017” and Suburbicon is “Suburbicon for 2017.” For future reference, citing the year that you are making a new movie for a long-dead franchise that hadn’t even been good since its original entry in 2004 is not the same as justifying the existence of that

movie. Even the Jigsaw Killer himself has officially been dead for 10 years within the universe of these movies, so who knows where they’re going with this. Directed by Michael and Peter Spierig. Starring Tobin Bell, Matt Passmore and Callum Keith Rennie. (R) 92 minutes. (SP) LUCKY John Carroll Lynch is Hollywood’s most unassuming Renaissance man. Probably best-known as the lovable Norm Gunderson from Fargo, his remarkable career as a character actor recently also included the absolutely terrifying Twisty the Clown in American Horror Story. Now he makes his directorial debut with this, the late Harry Dean Stanton’s final film, in a story about a 90-year-old atheist seeking enlightenment in a quirky Texas town. If that sounds a bit like David Lynch’s The Straight Story, well, John Carroll Lynch is very up front about the inspiration—in fact, David Lynch (no relation) co-stars in this film, along with Ron Livingston, Tom Skerritt and Beth Grant. (Not Rated) 88 minutes. (SP) MARK FELT: THE MAN WHO BROUGHT DOWN THE WHITE HOUSE Liam Neeson plays the most famous whistleblower in American history, Deepthroat. He has a very particular set of skills! Like, for instance, yapping to reporters about Watergate. Actually, that’s it. But it was enough to bring down a president. This story of his life reveals how he kept his identity secret for three decades. Peter Landesman directs. Diane Lane and Michael C. Hall costar. (PG-13) 103 minutes. (SP) MARSHALL Portrait of the Supreme Court justice as a young man, with Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) taking on a case that would help establish his name—defending a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) against a wealthy white socialite (Kate Hudson)’s charges in a segregationist court. Reginald Hudlin directs. Dan Stevens and James Cromwell co-star. (PG-13) 118 minutes. (SP)

SUBURBICON You’ve seen the trailer about a hundred times at this point, now see the movie where Matt Damon dresses like a big galoof from 1959, walks around with his face covered with blood, and rides a tricycle! If that sounds to you like a tangled web of seething suburban intrigue written by the Coen brothers, you’re right on. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that after putting George Clooney in several of their movies, they cowrote this story of a home invasion that shatters a small town’s fragile sense of peace with him, and are letting him direct their script this time around. Co-starring Julianne Moore and Nora Jupe. (R) 104 minutes. (SP) THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE The good news is that this story of U.S. soldiers trying to readjust to civilian life after serving in Iraq is based on David Finkel’s book— the best look at PTSD in recent memory. The perhaps-not-so-good news is that it’s the directorial debut of Jason Hall (who also penned the script), best known for writing bad movies like Spread and Paranoia before getting an Academy Award nomination for his disturbingly glowing portrait of a bloodthirsty “patriot” in American Sniper. Miles Teller and Haley Bennett star. (R) 108 minutes. (SP) TYLER PERRY’S BOO 2! A MADEA HALLOWEEN Spike Lee once criticized Tyler Perry’s work for the tired, negative stereotypes of African Americans that he continues to peddle to great success. Perry responded with the carefully crafted counterpoint that Lee should “shut the hell up.” Whoever you’ve got in that fight, this sequel to Perry’s god-awful Halloween film last year is unlikely to change your mind. Judging from the trailer, this movie seems to rely on the same overdone, bottom-ofthe-barrel horror-parody cliches as the last one. So who should be more offended—African Americans or horror movie fans? Probably African American horror movie fans, I guess. Perry directs and stars. (PG-13) (SP)

Critical Mass Holy Water at Front & Cooper may be more water than holy, but it’s definitely refreshing BY CHRISTINA WATERS

A

s lots of locals—and their out-of-town friends— have discovered, there’s a flashpoint of social action centering on the indoor/ outdoor possibilities of Abbott Square Market. Even on an early Tuesday evening, we found plenty of groups meeting, noshing, and sipping out on the generous terrace behind the Museum of Art and History. Inside, we glided past the streamlined beer and wine bar (one half of the Front &

Cooper concept), and headed for the long cocktail bar with its beautiful back bar of back-lit bottles. We didn’t have long to wait for a seat at the bar, and started sizing up the hefty chalkboard list of special cocktails. Individually-crafted spirit mixes and ambitious combinations—that’s the buzz at Front & Cooper, and so we decided to get into the spirit. On a warm evening, a cold drink with lots of ice sounded especially right. For that, my friend Katya decided, there

was the Holy Water ($9), a blend of Aperol, Chareau aloe vera liqueur, and fresh cucumber water. I found myself intrigued by the Pogonip ($12), made of liquid nitrogen-chilled herbs, gin and lime. I asked about presentation, and was told by one of the three resident mixologists, that the Pogonip was blended and served in a classic martini goblet. I fantasized about something in the way of nuts, or pretzels, or some sort of bar finger food, but I happily

settled for just my cocktail. Because there’s a single mixing station at the far right end of the bar, and we were seated at the other, we couldn’t enjoy the sight of our cocktails being concocted. Next time, I’ll try to sit closer to the mixology action. My pea-green Pogonip offered subtle hints of the herbs—apparently the liquid nitrogen treatment helps to preserve much of the herbal flavor during the muddling process—beneath the aggressive top note of lime-y-ness. Gin was all but undetectable, both in flavor (too much lime, I suspect) and in physiological punch. Perhaps the lack of a brand name gin in the description should have told me something. But the Holy Water was a sensational thirst-quencher (again, little in the way of apparent alcohol). A beautiful crimson hue—thanks to the Aperol bitters—the handsome cocktail offered an intriguing middle tone, thanks to the fairly light proof (25 percent) aloe liqueur, a versatile spirit that deserves its very own cocktail showcase. Visually, it was equally delightful, since two long curls of cucumber had been entwined into a double helix inside the goblet. The more I sampled the two cocktails, the more I wondered about the pricing; $9 for the Aperol/ Chareau blend, and $12 for herbs, lime and gin. Chareau, incidentally, is an innovator in the brave new world of botanical liqueurs. Nice scene at the bar, by the way—by the time we left, there was plenty to do, see, and flirt with at the downtown attraction. Front & Cooper, open noon to 10 p.m. daily, till midnight Friday and Saturday.

ew frozen treats approach ice cream nirvana like the Donnelly Chocolate salted caramel ice cream bar. And while there’s never a wrong time to enjoy ice cream, the heat wave last week was definitely a good excuse. Chocolatier Richard Donnelly has been offering his hand-crafted chocolates at his workshop on Mission Street since 1988, when he returned from cooking school in Paris. Deeply inspired by the fine chocolates he tasted while in France, he returned home determined to make the best chocolate he could. Since then, he’s been named one of the Ten Best Chocolatiers in the World by National Geographic and recognized internationally for his impeccably textured French and Belgian chocolates with flavors like coffee, chipotle and saffron. Step into the shop and Richard or his brother Henry, who joined the business in 2001, will likely offer you a sample while you place your order. Their best seller by far is the salted caramel chocolates. “We’re as much caramel makers as we are chocolate makers,” says Richard. “We make

caramel every single day.” Slowly perfecting his recipe over many years, the brothers insist on working in small batches to ensure freshness. The result is a divine, creamy, vanilla-scented caramel, perfectly accented by a few flakes of sea salt. Fifteen or so years ago, the Donnelly brothers created their ice cream bar. Like a conspiracy plot of deliciousness, each layer is intriguing on its own and mind-blowing when you see how all the pieces come together. “It’s really hard not to eat one every single day,” says Richard. A creamy square of Marianne’s Ice Cream vanilla ice cream makes up its core. Then, a layer of the beautiful caramel, which instead of seizing up when frozen remains magically gooey. The bar is then dipped in Donnelly’s dreamy chocolate and finished with sea salt or sea salt and crushed almond. The entire creation is transcendent. From the time I started eating it to the time the last drop had dripped down my hand, chocolate and caramel smeared on the corners of my mouth, I was a different person. 1509 Mission St., Santa Cruz. 458-4214.

ow is the time to plan for Thanksgiving, and that includes choosing some fine wines. We are blessed to have an abundance of superb local wineries, and it feels good to support them. Loma Prieta Winery’s 2014 Saveria Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir is a good bet for cracking open around the holidays. Pinot Noir pairs well with poultry, and if you’re looking for something special, then this Pinot ($50) fits the bill with its aromas of wildflowers, cranberry sauce, woodsy fern, pekoe tea, dill, and sandalwood. Loma Prieta owner Paul Kemp says the wine has tangy flavors of bright cranberry, pomegranate, orange marmalade, and more … and that the overall impression is of “savory breeziness.” Two suggested pairings are with grilled game hens stuffed with cranberry-orange rice, or duck legs in orange sauce. Loma Prieta Winery, 26985 Loma Prieta Way, Los Gatos, 408-353-2950. Open Saturday and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. lomaprietawinery.com. Check the map on their website for directions.

Sockshop and the adjoining Legs store will donate eight percent of sales over the whole weekend (Nov. 3-5). It’s an opportunity to support Hospice and load up on gifts for the holidays.

SCORPIO — THE SIGN, THE PERSON, THE MYSTERY Esoteric Astrology as News for Week of Nov. 1, 2017

Wednesday, Nov. 1 is always All Saint’s Day. And Thursday, Nov. 2, is All Soul’s Day. A time when spirits come for a visit, when the veils between worlds become transparent. All of this in Scorpio, sign of all things mysterious, secret, clandestine, furtive and covert. Scorpio for the disciple is the mystery teachings, the Ageless Wisdom. Scorpio calls the Disciple to the Temple. Of all 12 signs (except Pisces, the Savior), Scorpio (the Disciple) is the most veiled, concealed, hidden, unknown and buried in misunderstanding. When encountering a Scorpio person, one always senses a subtle aura of mystery and intrigue. Something’s always shifting, reorienting and transforming around Scorpio. Often dressed in indigo blues, deep violet and black, usually with sunglasses (even at night), Scorpio hides away for several reasons—to protect and be protected, to

ARIES Mar21–Apr20 As so many changes continue to occur, you become sensitized and aware of everyone’s behaviors, beliefs and responses in all interactions. You are also concerned with the right use of money and resources, your capacity to discern and discriminate and your ability to give (and give some more). Closeness is important to you at this time. All that you value shifts to a higher intimate level.

GEMINI May 22–June 20

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

No matter how compelling it is to return to a previous situation, you will not and cannot remain there. The purpose of the return is to review the lessons, realize the goodness, offer gratitude and forgiveness and then leave again. These liberate your future. The Nine Tests of Scorpio shadow you. You pass them. You cultivate focused spiritual intention.

In nonviolent (compassionate) communication classes we learn to compassionately understand the self and others’ needs. Being able to discern needs becomes a creative act, deeply internal, yet profoundly affecting all outer experiences and interactions. Cooperation (a virtue) begins in earnest. If you haven’t already, begin to learn Compassionate Communication techniques. Its effects are extraordinary.

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21

The ways we act and respond in relationships stem from childhood and family experiences and observations. Although you often hide yourself away from the world, you’re dedicated to loved ones. You would never think of leaving them. This dedication allows those close to you to grow, blossom, bloom, transform and evolve. Do you feel loved enough in return?

Are you feeling restricted by anyone or anything in your life? Is there a need for a rebalancing with friends or family? Are you concerned with choices, enough rest, future resources? Let’s discuss rest. You need rest in great amounts. A specific creativity is calling to you. Does it have to do with home, herbs, teas and gardens? Are you planting biodynamically?

Green Certified Business

reorganizing your self-identity, how you see yourself, your professional and personal realities and interactions with the world. Listen carefully to all communication. They tell you what must be balanced to create a future filled with freedom. Begin with forgiveness. It heals you first.

Happy Birthday to all Scorpios. In coming months, there will be new discoveries, a new identity, and new learnings concerning how you see yourself. It begins with you creatively helping one another. Helping others reconciles us to our own humanity. We see the needs of the times through the needs of others. Then we begin to help build the new world—the new sharing society. You are the resource behind this idea, which becomes an ideal within humanity.

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

Serving Santa Cruz for 30 Years!

observe without being observed. Scorpio, extremely intelligent, is a strategist. They understand all that is unseen, veiled and buried. If spiritually inclined, they lift everything into the Light. To be with a Scorpio (family, friend, lover, enemy, etc.) is to be aware of death, rebirth, resurrection and regeneration … daily. Since Scorpios are aware of others on invisible levels, and since experiences of betrayal have trailed them throughout lifetimes, Scorpio conceals from everyone (except trusted intimates) their innermost secrets, lest more betrayal occur. If you’re considered trustworthy, this is the highest compliment Scorpio offers. Tend to the Scorpios in your life with understanding, kindness and care. They’re often weary from constant inner and outer battles, the nine spiritual tests and the concept of death always surrounding them.

Remember when life was lived outside? When we picked fruit, gathered water at the well, and made fires to cook on? Remember long walks at daybreak and sunset as the moon and stars appeared? Remember the sense of community. There was also loneliness and separation and long snowy winters. As adults, we are able to release what’s sorrowful. Through loving forgiveness. Remember?

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 You seek more freedom—especially financial. This has been on your mind for a while now. One of the most important recieve of receiving money is tithing to those in need. When we give things away we experience freedom. The heart opens. What we give returns ten-fold. What you are really seeking is liberty. Create a freedom journal. Write what makes you free. Draw the Statue of Liberty.

LIBRA Sep23–Oct22 Your future is emerging in great transformative waves—

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20 Profound changes continue, with self-identity and life direction. Group work is of great importance. In groups people see you as one who comes in to transform them. Some like this, some don’t. However, this is your task in groups. Understanding this helps you maintain focus and confidence. You manifest the group’s spiritual work. Before any work, call in the Soul of yourself and all others. The Soul protects and safeguards you.

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18 Your resources depend on your state of mind. It’s most important to downsize so you can move forward quickly when needed. Don’t let this be traumatic. Either keep what you have or give it away so you are less dependent on physical non-essentials and more focused upon freedom, which your future will call for. Balance is in having less. And then you can proceed onto a new adventure.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 With Neptune in Pisces, here is what it feels like. “Amidst the whirling forces we stood confused, swept up and down the lands, blinded, nowhere to rest.” Finally, we (Pisces) say, “Here I stand and will not move till I know the law governing this very moment. Facing many ways, I will determine for myself which way to go, traveling no longer up and down the land, no longer be blinded. I will only upward move. And then find rest.” (The Old Ancient Commentary for Pisces.)

KARRI BRESLIN, 31-Year Customer Santa Cruz

Occupation: Self-employed graphic artist Hobbies: Golf, painting. making furniture, biking, hiking, cooking (oh yeah!) Astrological Sign: Pisces

TOM BRESLIN, 30-Year Customer, Santa Cruz

Occupation: Tom’s Mobile Paint Repair Hobbies: Hiking, biking, water sports, cooking/ barbecuing Astrological Sign: Gemini What or who first got you shopping here? KARRI: “My mom. I’ve always liked the wooden floors and the oldtimey look of Shopper’s. I’ve always felt welcomed here.” TOM: “Shopper’s has a friendly neighborly feel. It’s the best market in town! The checkers and baggers are polite and they check you out quickly. At some stores, it’s like being in the Twilight Zone — how long will I be here? — with people sliding their store cards, and when they break out the coupons you’re done; you’re there forever!” KARRI: “We know the people here. That makes it a much more personal experience for us, rather than feeling faceless and nameless.”

What do you folks like to cook? KARRI: “He’s Mr. Meats. I do a lot with vegetables and explore many cuisines such as French, Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, Chinese and more. Items you’d think you might not find here you do. Like Champagne vinegar, vanilla beans, and tamarind paste for Thai food.” TOM: “Shopper’s butchers are pros and their products are top quality such as grass-fed meat, rack of lamb, flank steaks, and sausages. I love their whole chickens for beer-can-chicken. The marinated teriyaki products are amazing! For the quality you get and the environment, the pricing is reasonable.” KARRI: “Shopping at Shopper’s is always fun.”

Plan on shopping here for holiday meals? KARRI: “Yes. My mother usually cooks the turkey for Thanksgiving, but I’ll make all the sides.” TOM: “I like breaking tradition by doing ribs. For Christmas, we’ll get a crown pork roast and a filet mignon.” KARRI:” Shopper’s overall wine selection is pretty big, and we’ll get some great Cabernets. Also Bushmill’s and whipped cream for Irish coffees. Shopper’s is a family-oriented market, and not only is it a holiday tradition for us but an every-day tradition as well.” TOM: “Holidays or not, Shopper’s employees bend over backward for you. It’s fun running into friends and family during holidays. It’s a local thing.”

“Shopper’s is a family-oriented market, and not only is it a holiday tradition for us but an every-day tradition as well.”
