So hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shoutout to longtime karaoke favorites Bogartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lounge and Tech Pub at 1209 Wildwood Ave., Sunnyvale, which hosts karaoke Fridays and Sundays; and 7 Bamboo Karaoke Lounge at 162 Jackson St., San Jose, the 2008 Best of Silicon Valley winner. If we missed your favorite spot, let us know. Our complete karaoke listings start on page 66.

Disappointed This letter is in response to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fraternity Life & Deathâ&#x20AC;? (MetroNews, March 4). I wrote an article on the same issue for the Spartan Daily, and I was disappointed at how Metro handled it. The writer seems to have made a conscious effort to make the parents of Gregory Johnson Jr. look dumb and untruthful while giving people on the other side

Â?

Â&#x2DC;

of the issue courteous treatment. The writer prodded the parents to answer a question regarding the fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged drug use and reported the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resistance to answer the question directly, but the writer did not prod others in the story to answer relevant questions and did not call attention to others avoiding questions like she did to the parents. During my reporting on this case, the San Jose State University

Police Department did not grant me an interview. Instead, I was forced to direct my questions to Pat Lopes Harris, the SJSU media relations director, who wrote my questions down so that she could present them to a UPD officer. She later told me that the officer refused to answer every single one of my questions. Almost all of them regarded events that had already happened and at least two officers should have been able to answer them from memory.

Your article includes no information from UPD, not even a statement that the department declined to comment. Instead, it features quotes from three people, whose backgrounds are not in police work, saying that the fraternity has been unfairly criticized and that its members need time to grieve. I think such arguments are used to sway the topic away from questions regarding the chance of foul play having been involved. It is simply unfair that UPD refuses to say a word about this case. UPD should be questioned, point by point. SJSU seems compelled to let UPD off the hook without such questioning, and your article supports that effort. Lastly, your article listed the wrong address for the fraternity house. The error may seem like a simple typo, but the exact same error can be found in the autopsy report. If nothing else, this error shows that officials do make mistakes and that reporters should not always trust officials to provide the truth.

Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article in no way portrayed the parents of Gregory Johnson Jr. as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dumb and untruthful.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The article quotes several SJSU officials expressing sympathy for their loss. Our reporter did ask the parents difficult questionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is her job. While the letter writer may be disappointed that Metro did not uncover a murder conspiracy and cover-up involving the UPD, the County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, and all of the members of the Sigma Chi fraternity, we found no evidence to support that charge. The Sigma Chi house is on North Tenth Street, not South Tenth Street.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Editor

Well, I got your number, sweetie. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do good to remember the old saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do unto othersâ&#x20AC;? because those you stomp on your way up are the same ones you may have to face on your way back down.

Valley Thriller

S

INCE IT’S FUN to shadow distinguished writers who put San Jose locales in their novels, and since the San Jose Police Department just can’t get enough attention these days, here we go again with another epic endorsement of Menlo Park author Barry Eisler. His latest thriller, Fault Line, actually includes a few scenes at the SJPD headquarters over on West Mission Street. In the acknowledgments at the end of the book, Eisler even thanks specific members of the force for their assistance. Among other individuals, family members and pals, Eisler gives kudos to “Detective James Randol and Lieutenant J.R. Gamez of the San Jose Police Department, for answering all my questions, for providing some terrific ideas, for giving me a tour of the SJPD—and most of all for doing the incredibly important work they do.” These are calamitous times for San Jose’s boys in blue, as their behavior is being ever more scrutinized due to seemingly disproportionate amounts of Latino arrests for sloppy hostile drunk-in-public behavior. The force could use the positive publicity, methinks. In any event, Fault Line itself is a departure for Eisler, as he usually pens exotic espionage yarns about a charismatic half-Japanese, half-American assassin named John Rain whose forte is making the victim look like he croaked of natural causes. The entire run of six John Rain novels resulted in a mostly Japanese movie that debuts in Tokyo next month. Fault Line is totally different. Instead of taking place at exotic locales all over the Orient—with rogue operatives, private contractors, former spooks and triple agents all shadowing each other—most of the story transpires in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, including a few scenes where Alex, the protagonist, heads to the SJPD nerve center. Here’s an example: “San Jose Police Headquarters was a fortress, all concrete blocks and ninety-degree angles and dark reflective windows. The two benches in front were bolted to the cement beneath and did nothing to leaven the formidable atmosphere of the place. Even the trees and plantings felt more like camouflage than decoration.” In the next paragraph, Eisler depicts the inside of the place, with its “bulletproof glass, surveillance cameras, [and] heavy high-tech-looking metal doors.” Normally, if I read a scene that takes place in San Jose, I feel inclined to go scope out the locale just to see if the author got it right, but somehow I don’t feel the urge this time around. I do, however, feel the urge to revisit the Four Seasons Hotel on University Avenue in East Palo Alto, another locale Eisler placed in the book, and also the local stop for the Fault Line book tour Friday, March 20 (6–8:15pm). In a multipronged marketing operation, Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park will actually sell the Barry Eisler’s latest books, while the Four Seasons will thriller actually host the event, since the property is includes a few heavily featured in the novel. Make sure you park in the hotel’s garage, as scenes at the SJPD that’s where an assassination attempt headquarters over on goes awry in Chapter 18, titled “Better West Mission Street Luck Next Time.” In the scene, Alex’s brother, Ben, an expert shooter with black op experience for the Joint Special Operations Command, eliminates two Russian dudes who were about to ambush him in the garage. Here he puts the final touches on the second dude: “‘Do svidaniya,’ Ben said, and put a last round into the guy’s forehead. The guy’s body shuddered once as though he’d been shocked and then the rigidity, the human cohesion and coherence, was just gone, leaving an inert mound where a moment ago had been man.” Then Ben high-tails it over the service gate onto Manhattan Avenue and then along West Bayshore, parallel to 101. Most of the visual environs actually appear on Google Maps, if you want to scope out the scene for yourself. I am an Eisler fan first and foremost, but maybe he should have held the author event at the San Jose Police Headquarters instead. They could use the free press.

That Tiny Sum? A SONG purchased from Apple’s iTunes or Amazon is no different from one bought from a brick-and-mortar retail outlet, despite the vast differences in the economies of distribution between the two. That, in a FnjofnÖt!gpsnfs!qspevdujpo!dpnqboz!kvtu!mptu!xibu! dpvme!cf!b!mboenbsl!dbtf!bhbjotu!uif!Vojwfstbm! nutshell, was the jury verdict Nvtjd!Hspvq/ handed down in a case brought by rapper Eminem’s former production company, FBT Productions, against Universal Music Group. At issue here was whether the sale of digital music downloads falls under the “distribution” agreements that cover physical releases like CDs. FBT argued they do not, claiming that the label incurs none of the costs typically associated with them—things like CD jewel cases and inserts, breakage fees and in-store displays. Instead, the production company said that downloads should be covered by “licensing” agreements that don’t include such expenses. And the difference between the two is significant: Under distribution deals, artists typically take a 30 percent split of royalties earned. Under licensing deals, they take 50 percent. But the jury didn’t quite see things FBT’s way and instead bought Universal’s argument that the economics for digital downloads should be viewed as similar to those of the single. A nasty blow to FBT and other artists hoping to see their royalty rates adjusted to account for the new economies of distribution provided by digital music storefronts. Seems that as much as technology has changed the relationship between musicians and their fans, it’s done little to change the one between musicians and their labels. —John Paczkowski, digitaldaily.allthingsd.com 7n[dXjh^c\dci]ZeZgXZciV\Zhndjb^hhi]ZW^\\Zge^XijgZ!l]^X]^hi]ViY^\^iVabjh^X Wg^c\h^c_jhiV[gVXi^dcd[i]ZgZkZcjZh89hYd#I]^h[gVXi^dccZZYhidXdkZgVaad[i]ZÒmZYXdhihV aVWZa^cXjghidÒcY!YZkZade!VcYbVg`ZiiVaZci#DcanVhbVaacjbWZgd[WVcYh\ddcidbV`ZbdcZn [dgi]ZaVWZaVcYZ[[ZXi^kZanhjWh^Y^oZi]Zl]daZdeZgVi^dc# >XZgiV^can]deZVcZlY^\^iVabdYZaZbZg\Zhi]Vicdidcanhjeedgih[VbdjhZm^hi^c\VXihWjiVahd WgZV`hcZldcZh#6hbjX]Vh>adkZ:b^cZb!>]deZi]ZgZÉhcZlZgbjh^Xida^hiZcidl]Zc>Éb-%# ÅVaVcb^aZh =VkZcÉii]ZnY^hb^hhZYi]ZD?H^behdc_jgnnZi4ÅbVXWZVX]

Will local protesters block the fast-track to the future? AST November, Californians approved a $9.95 billion down payment for the first electric-powered steel-wheelon-steel-rail high-speed train system in the nation. They voted yes to an artist’s rendition of sleek tubular trains invisibly zooming through their neighborhoods, connecting California’s major cities and taking them from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and a new green future, in less than 2.5 hours. But now that public meetings are being held, residents along the Caltrain corridor are worried about what 52 percent of California’s voters actually green-lighted. In January, the California HighSpeed Rail Authority (CHSRA) began the development of the Environmental Impact Report/ Environmental Impact Statement

160,000 Number of workers required to build the state’s High Speed Rail system

March 11–17, 2009 and 4.1 million at Diridon station, “everybody’s trying to figure out how much impact this is going to have on our daily lives,” says David Chang, who lives on Fuller Avenue, near the train tracks. Neighborhood opposition to high speed rail has sprung up in several communities. In Palo Alto, protesters holding signs saying “Deceived by Prop. 1A” attended a recent meeting, charging that elevated train tracks above cross streets, and proposed security barriers, will divide their community like a Berlin Wall. In response to the protests, the city of Palo Alto asked the CHSRA to consider running the HST anywhere but the Caltrain corridor. City leaders even asked the agency to build a tunnel under their city. Meanwhile, the tony cities of Menlo Park and Atherton have sued to route the HST away from the Caltrain corridor. This lawsuit will be heard on May 5 in Sacramento.

Can’t Stop This Train

for two spurs of the system—the San Francisco to San Jose and San Jose to Merced sections. The public was invited to scoping meetings in San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, which will continue through March. San Jose’s first meeting, on Feb. 25, was typical in that there were more questions than answers from the CHSRA’s reps. With only a week’s notice, Harvey Darnell, chairman of the Greater Gardner Strong Neighborhood Initiative/ Neighborhood Action Coalition (SNI NAC), rallied more than 75 residents and representatives of San Jose’s neighborhood associations to Gardner Community Center, which is located a few blocks from the Caltrain corridor. Under the current plan, Caltrain will share its right of way with the

HST, and in exchange, Caltrain will share the HST’s electrification, advanced signaling system and safer underground or elevated tracks to separate them from crossing automobile and pedestrian traffic. Caltrain runs north from Gilroy up to San Jose and then alongside Highway 87, crossing Bird Avenue, then Interstate 280, to Diridon Station. It continues past the HP Pavilion along Stockton Avenue to San Francisco. By 2030, the CHSRA is projecting that 90 percent of all Californians will be taking advantage of the opportunity to travel aboard the 800-mile Sacramento-to–San Diego system at speeds as high as 220 mph for about half the cost of an airline ticket. With 9.1 million riders a year projected to board HSTs in San Francisco, between 5am and 11pm,

At a Redwood City meeting last week, CHSRA chairman Judge Quentin Kopp stood out in a floppy bow tie, pink shirt and pinstriped suit. The former San Francisco supervisor and state senator is a charismatic figure from the Willie Brown /Wilkes Bashford era of politicos. Kopp said the Caltrain corridor was chosen because they don’t have to pay for the existing right of way from San Francisco to the Tamian station area in north San JoseCK. Asked if it was a done deal, he said, “You can’t predict lawsuits, but I think it’s called ‘democracy.’ The people of California approved it so there’s a mandate to carry this out.” Kopp says he’s confident they’ll be able to raise the funding needed to complete the HST from federal, state, regional and private sources. Thirteen billion dollars of the $787 billion recovery package is earmarked for HSTs. CHSRA will apply for about $7 billion. &'

Ron Diridon Sr., the governor’s appointee to the CHSRA board, is equally optimistic. He hopes to have an approved EIR/EIS by 2010, construction contracts in place by 2011 and a San Francisco–to-L.A. HST by 2018. He says nothing’s been decided yet so people shouldn’t worry now about losing their homes. But HST opponents express concern about additional space needed to accommodate new tracks. Gary Kennerley, the regional manager for the San Jose to Merced section, says north of Diridon station they’re counting on Caltrain Express and the HST to share twin tracks, with another set to be shared by Caltrain locals and Union Pacific’s freight trains. Dan Leavitt, CHSRA deputy director, says “between Diridon station and Gilroy you could be adding just 60 feet because this corridor is constrained.” “We’re looking at optimal ways of arranging tracks within the right of way,” Leavitt says. “Within six months, we’ll have completed our assessment and we’ll be right out there informing the public.”

Path of Progress Word of Faith Christian Center is on Fuller Avenue and its pastor, Dr. Willie Nuitt, is doing the math. He thinks his congregation will lose their church. “We’re right next to the tracks, so whether we want to be involved or not we are,” he says. “If they leave our church, it could be damaged by the weight and the speed of the trains. If we have to move, we want to make sure we can acquire new property with the settlement and have a place to go.” North Willow Glen Neighborhood Association president Allison England lives on Fuller Street, and is organizing a scoping meeting at Word of Faith on March 24, the day before San Jose’s last official HSR meeting. “We’ve been suffering from the freight and commuter trains that shake and crack our plaster walls on a regular basis,” England says.

“Now, we’ll have to go through all of the dust and nastiness of them building this. “We knew Caltrain was there when we bought our house but we didn’t buy into this.” Tim Frank, Sierra Club senior policy adviser, says the state must weigh the benefits to society as a whole. “You can’t say ‘no’ to this because a small group of people don’t want a piece of the infrastructure running through their back yard,” Frank says. “Some people will pay a price and we should consider their concerns, but we’re getting a transportation network that will serve the whole population of this state, especially when you consider how it will feed into regional and local public transportation systems.” The Sierra Club and the National Resource Defense Council are both ardent HSR supporters. Both groups supported Proposition 1A. Frank says the people who benefit from the fast trains won’t just be its riders. Everyone will benefit from huge reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and less congestion because every passenger on the HST would otherwise be on an airplane or driving. “It will help everyone who uses freeways, everyone who breathes and everyone who wants to end global warming,” Frank says. He says this ambitious project is just the beginning of a greener future. “The HST is just one part of the solution. We need more local transit and we need to build neighborhoods that are more transitoriented and walkable. But if you compare the HST’s impact on habitat, wildlife and climate change to building the new airports and highways that are needed, HST looks a lot better.” San Jose’s final HST Scoping meetings will be held on March 24, 7–9pm, at Word of Faith Christian Center, 873 Delmas Ave., San Jose, and on March 25, 3–7pm, at Roosevelt Community Center, Community Room B, 901 E. Santa Clara St., San Jose.

It’s Bankruptcy One man’s travels through a fate worse than debt BY P. JOSEPH POTOCKI

S

HOULDERS squared, jaw thrust defiantly out, I reached for the door to the Federal Bankruptcy Court. It was a warm and sunny spring morning. I’d spent months plowing through paperwork, pulling out clumps of hair and reconditioning my backbone, preparing for this very moment. A strange psycho-kinship with Bert Lahr’s Cowardly Lion had grown inside me as I prepared to engage a similarly great, powerful and really scary wizardry. Having for many months played out alternately ruminative and then self-loathing excitations, as though completing this process required each day for my yin to duke it out with my yang, finally, my paperwork was assembled and I was set to enter the vestibule leading to the federal crypt of my financial ruination. My plan was to swing open the door, beeline it to the clerk’s counter, plunk down the fee, file for debt relief and slither away incognito. Instead, I was greeted by two uniformed officers instructing me to remove my belt, empty all pockets and place everything, including my wretched ream of requisite paperwork, onto an X-ray conveyor belt. That’s symbolism for you, subtle as the plague. But only just now has that symbolism dawned on me. Perhaps that’s because, when soliciting bankruptcy’s scarlet letter, one is more inclined to focus on the deed’s radioactive fallout than on some ethereal symbolism, no matter how blatant the empty-pocket motif. Still, I swear I could hear

insolvency’s cosmic jester squealing himself silly with glee at my filing, for yet another poor mortal shlub had just checked into his Hotel California. Or, well, maybe not.

Nonexclusive Club According to the National Bankruptcy Research Center, bankruptcy filings skyrocketed between 2006 and 2007. And that was the first full year the highly contentious Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 was enforced. This draconian legislative gem, a credit-card-industry-writ wet dream come true, makes qualifying for Chapter 7 bankruptcy far more costly and difficult. Consider for a moment that somewhat more than 300 million Americans are breathing and buying stuff today. Our combined national credit card debt stands at more than $950 billion. That means, on average, each household carries about $11,000 on credit cards alone, never mind mortgages and other ongoing financial commitments. Chapter 7 leaves the debtor with a nearly clean slate when all is said and done. However, while Chapter 7 provides individuals relief, one’s credit is toast for at least seven years. But, once bankruptcy is granted, should one work hard, live frugally and, as penance for sins against capital, endure years of want, one reemerges a creditworthy phoenix. That’s because capitalism requires that we prodigal sons and daughters return to its fold. Perhaps the authors of the Bankruptcy Abuse

Prevention and Consumer Protection Act forgot this. I say that because were he not rehabilitated, the debtor would be unavailable for future capital bleeding. But even after a Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge, not all debts go away. Back taxes, child support and student loans do not get eliminated, though unsecured debt (i.e., credit cards) pretty much does. That’s the reason why credit card companies aren’t too keen on folks filing Chapter 7. The plastic camp shoved a bill through the 2005 Congress, gifting the credit card companies by screwing the consumer. George Bush, no doubt, took enormous delight in inking this class war declaration. This bill, commonly referred to as the “New Bankruptcy Law,” imposes higher filing fees, mandates that a petitioner pay for and complete credit counseling, and lards on additional paperwork, compelling most attorneys to double fees for bankruptcy services. Most notably, by injecting “means testing,” which is designed to disqualify many people who wish to file a Chapter 7, those turned away, should they still insist on going belly up, have been obliged to seek the far more costly and drawn-out [insert horrific organ shrills and a deep dum-de-dum-dum] Chapter 13. Earlier modern-day bankruptcy laws were designed to give a fresh start to those whose debt load was so heavy they’d never get out from under it. The idea isn’t so much an altruistic or magnanimous one as it is a rational understanding that people with 17

BANKRUPTCY 15 crushing debt are a drain on society as a whole. Still, while the intent of this most recent bankruptcy legislation was to inhibit folks from filing, it’s failed big-time. The scheme was to punish those who insist on filing by creating smaller, higher and more numerous new hoops for them to jump through, and by levying additional fees while providing a bogus alternative route to debt settlement via industryfunded “nonprofit” debt-collection agencies, established to surreptitiously do the credit card industry’s dirty work.

I take 100 percent full credit for my personal financial tribulations. While there is blame to go around in this inequitable culture, my personal misadventures were definitively of my very own making. But get this: In 2008, bankruptcy filings far eclipsed those of 2007. More than a million Americans chose to lose, or filed to lose, significant chunks of their worldly possessions—fair, square and legal.

Strike, Struck, Stricken “Hold on one darn second there, fella,” comes the fair-minded retort, “aren’t you just excuse-making with fancy smoke and mirrors, aiming to defray your own fiscal missteps and shortcomings at the expense of easy targets? How about addressing your own mistakes and taking personal responsibility for your actions?” OK, then. You’re absolutely right. I take 100 percent full credit for my personal financial tribulations. While there is blame to go around in this inequitable culture, my personal misadventures were definitively of my very own making. That’s partially because I knew better, and screwed up anyway. I tunneled my way into credit default after a lifetime of scrupulously avoiding plastic and massive debt. Here’s how it happened. My wife was

working at a brokerage firm and doing pretty well. This allowed me the luxury of a few years of research, writing and lecturing, which, shall we say, didn’t exactly pay the bills, even though her work did. Finally, it was gently suggested I find the means by which to supplement my meager income. I first cast about for ways to bring home the bacon that didn’t involve hard work. There wasn’t much to choose from. Taking stock of my skill set, it occurred to me that I was passably good at least three things, namely: reading, writing and holding forth. San Francisco being our residence at the time, it struck me that visitors might actually pay me to drive them to and fro, regaling them with fun-filled facts, figures and fables. I’d provide high-end, personally customized tours of the city, Monterey, Yosemite and wine country to cultured individuals with really deep pockets. Hallelujah, these tourists were aching, I was certain, to pay me for a good time! Jeez—the impenetrable depths of selfdelusion. All it took was the two-week 2004 San Francisco hotel strike and its subsequent seven-week lockout to bring my little business to its knees. I conducted not one tour during the nine-week course of this strike. Once the matter had been settled, the concierges I had so fawningly cultivated chose to do business with other tour firms who’d shown no compunction about crossing picket lines. It was all quite understandable, but understanding it didn’t address my ever-mounting debt. And with debt came its attendant demons: vodka, cigarettes, marital anguish and severe depression. I even fantasized a terminal solution. Fortunately, we decided to cut costs, move out of the city and do the conventional work thing. But even with steady work, the bills kept mounting. Credit agencies assured me I’d not be forgotten. I even took a meeting with a kind and thoughtful credit counselor who told me, “You’re fucked.” Fact is, prior to this, I’d long been philosophically opposed to living beyond my demonstrably simple means. I knew credit cards were nothing but trouble, but came to a point in life where I joyfully deluded myself into believing I was ripe to try my hand at business. I seduced myself into believing that signing up for one, two, three, four—or even five, hell, who’s counting—of the siren-sounding offers landing in my mailbox each day would merely jump-start my can’t-miss business. I’d bought my own bullshit, and on high-interest credit. Indeed, I’d finance my small business the newfashioned American way: naively. Damn, it was so quick, and so insanely easy, using credit cards to keep my tiny concern afloat, while fate tap-danced all over it; using 18

BANKRUPTCY 17 plastic to make van payments, insurance payments, promotional costs, taxes; finally, even using plastic to meet basic living expenses, awaiting the big payback.

Bankruptcy Chic Early American debtors hardly relished being locked in public stockades, suffering the taunts and produce projectiles launched their way. Others spent all their time ensconced in prisons. These unfortunates compounded debts that got them there, with interest. Colonial and even post-Revolutionary imprisonment featured small, stark, stank and drafty jail cells. Disease was rampant, and as in this Bush era, you could be tortured. Back then, one’s former high standing, philanthropies and/or exemplary national service counted for nothing against owing a buck. Take for example one Robert Morris, chief financier of the Revolutionary War and signer of the Declaration of Independence. Morris was our nation’s first Superintendent of Finance, but none of this meant squat when, in his latter years, his investments turned sour. Morris was sentenced and subjected to four brutal years in an American debtor’s prison. I don’t claim membership to this earlier vanguard movement but do feel part of a recent groundswell. Call it “bankruptcy chic,” though with numbers climbing madly it’ll be hard to keep it an exclusive club for long. The way it’s going, bankruptcy’s destined to become as commonplace as Kleenex. But for now it remains a timeless and even fashionable club, one whose eminent membership includes Henry Ford, Donald Trump, Milton Hershey, Henry John Heinz and Meat Loaf. Also kings Edward II and Phillip II; Rembrandt, Handel, Mozart and Gutenberg; presidents Jefferson, Lincoln, McKinley and Grant; sporting greats Bjorn Borg, Lawrence Taylor and Johnny Unitas; showbiz stars Lynn Redgrave, Richard Harris, Randy Quaid, Larry King, Mickey Rooney, Debbie Reynolds, Buster Keaton, Margot Kidder and even Donald Duck’s dad, Walt Disney. So in the end, what’s going bankrupt taught me? Well, it’s led me into a great job, where I’m paid to think. I’ve dropped 30 pounds, exercise daily, have better than optimal blood pressure, take no medications and show no signs of diabetes. I no longer drink, smoke or suffer depression. I’m a recent vegan convert. Our family lives in comfortable “affordable housing,” I’ve crawled out from my cave and have made new, exceptionally wonderful friends, and I look forward to a long winter of writing, reading, plotting, scheming and dreaming—all well within my financial means. Life today is filled with hope and optimism. If that’s a fate worse than debt, well, I’ll live with it. M

Dancing With The Bear Investing for these times (and possibly the next Great Depression) BY JOHN SAKOWICZ OW DO we invest for what is possibly the next Great Depression? Late last year, I went to an event in New York sponsored by Merrill Lynch. I went to hear Blackrock Inc. CEO Laurence Fink. Fink is a guy who is as much responsible for the subprime mortgage default mess, and subsequent global credit crisis, as anyone. He helped pioneer the concept of subprimes. He is an expert in our pain. What Fink said was hugely important: We will not hit bottom until there is “capitulation” in financial markets. Capitulation is the broad sell-off that precedes the end of a bear market. The broad sell-off of everything: stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies. Everything and anything you can think of. Capitulation = panic selling. Since the spike in defaults in mortgagebacked subprimes brought down Bear Stearns last summer, the global stock market has tanked. Commodities have also collapsed. Everything the developing world sells to the rest of us is also down big-time. Fink says we haven’t hit bottom yet. He was also quick to say that if the markets don’t recover by mid-2009, we may see this recession continue to deepen. If markets don’t recover, they will bottom out and flatten out, possibly for years, just like the Great Depression or Japan’s “lost decade” of the 1990s.

H

And that presents a wonderful window of opportunity. Bull market or bear market—there’s always opportunity, always. Don’t fight the bear. My strategy for the next 12 months is to do what the pros are doing. Here’s what the pros are doing: 1. If commodities have sold off, bet on a commodities comeback. The world’s population continues to grow, as do shortages. 2. If “cash cows” like utilities are cheap, then buy utilities. Warren Buffet is buying them. They’re cheap, and they pay big dividends relative to what you’re now going to get in CDs or money market funds. 3. If the U.S. Treasury is investing in banks through the TARP bailout program, then maybe you should, too. The Treasury’s investments provide a “backstop” against big losses. Your downside is limited. 4. If you believe President Obama, and I do, then maybe you should bet that the sun will shine on solar and other green technologies again.

Commodities Commodity prices will probably continue to fall in the near-term. Demand isn’t

falling as fast as commodity prices or the stock prices of commodity producers, so I’m predicting a rebalancing of supply-demand to price ratio. Traders call this “charting.” In other words, the correlation between the technicals and the fundamentals is out of whack. Fundamentals will strengthen soon. Demand is going to rebound quickly, no matter what the doom-and-gloom guys say. Rising economies, like China, India, Brazil and the Middle East, are going to drive the rebound in commodities prices. Remember, the rest of the world still wants to live like Americans. My picks: • Petróleo Brasileiro or Petrobras (ticker PBR). Brazil, along with China, will be the world’s leading, fastest-growing economy in the future. • Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK). Largest producer of natural gas in the United States. • Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX). Why? One of the world’s biggest, most efficient producers. • Fortescue Metals Group (FSUMF). Big Australian producer of iron ore. Oversold. Chinese steel producers are its best customers. I like those Chinese customers. • Rayonier (RYN). Another undervalued timber company. Unlike PCL, they don’t sell acreage to homebuilders; rather, they are the actual developers. . • Ultra Petroleum (UPL). Huge earnings growth from the 230 square miles of natural gas fields it owns or leases in southwest Wyoming, the most exciting new energy discovery in the continental United States in our lifetime. • Thompson Creek Metals (TC). Big molybdenum producer. Also, a play that China’s $586 billion stimulus plan, announced just last week, will drive global steel production over the next few years. • Suncor Energy (SU). Big Canadian oil sands producer. Their Athabasca fields are the future of oil in North America, not the Arctic Wilderness or offshore drilling in California (no matter what Sarah Palin says).

Utilities Think you know more than Warren Buffett? Think again. Buffett has been on a utility-buying binge, betting on consolidation in the industry. But there are three companies he left on the table. My picks: • FPL Group, formerly Florida Power and Light (FPL). The utilities industry’s leader in wind power generation. Besides being clean and renewable, the

[21]

beautiful thing about wind is that it fits in well in the grid with the different patterns of peak electricity generation coming from oil, natural, gas, coal and nuclear. • American Electric Power (AEP). AEP sits next to Appalachia’s coal fields. AEP is perfectly positioned for further consolidation in the utilities industry. Dividend yield is 5.62 percent. • Duke Energy (DUK). Duke’s recent merger with Cinergy creates a new company with over 4 million customers and 16,000 megawatts of unregulated generating capacity for the wholesale market.

Banks Or should I say bank? • U.S. Bancorp (USB) USB recently received $6.6 billion from the U.S. Treasury’s $700 billion TARP bailout program in exchange for preferred stock and warrants, just like all those other big-name banks with a sob story that you read about every day. But unlike the other banks, USB didn’t need the money.

Green Technology This is a hard sector in which to separate the winners from the losers because it’s so damned speculative, so I won’t make individual picks. You can efficiently and cheaply invest in a sector by buying an Exchange Traded Fund or ETF. An ETF is a basket of leading stocks in a particular industry sector. Furthermore, ETFs usually trade on one of the leading exchanges, like the New York Stock Exchange. Therefore, ETFs are highly liquid. There are several ETFs in the green technology sector. The granddaddy of alternative energy ETFs is PowerShares WilderHill Clean Energy (ticker PBW). PBW is a basket of 40 different companies. The grand mammy is something called the Van Eck Global Alternative Energy ETF (GEX). It is more heavily weighted on international stocks. PowerShares also has another ETF called the Progressive Energy Portfolio (PUW). A third ETF offering by PowerShares is the CleanTech Portfolio (PZD), which includes water resources and purification, and advanced materials and logistics companies, in the portfolio of alternative energy production and technology companies.

Final Word What didn’t we talk about? We didn’t talk about bonds. We didn’t talk about asset allocation in stocks, bonds and cash. We didn’t talk about rebalancing your portfolio. We didn’t talk about common investing mistakes. And we didn’t talk about how this recession is different. It may be much worse than you think. M

Women Wheeling TO THE WOMEN about to bike, we salute you. March 8 is your day, and Velo Girls celebrated it by putting on the Tri-Flow Menlo Park Grand Prix. Sure, the guys can ride, too, but this one was really for the women cyclists. With a lucky break from the rainy weather, the race got under way with the Elite 5 category riders followed by the Masters Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race and the much-anticipated Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pro race, which included such major riders as Webcore Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; National Champion Kathryn Curi Mattis and 2008 National Road and Crit Champion Brooke Miller, who has recently added her ďŹ rst place in the First Amgen Tour of California Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Criterium to her long list of cycling triumphs. Miller races for TIBCO, and she was ďŹ&#x201A;anked by the Alisonsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not a family operation but two new powerful cyclists: Alison Starnes, who gave up tennis for cycling in 2008 and has quickly climbed the ranks and is earning her bragging rights; and Alison Rosenthal, who is in her second season but already took 11th in the Amgen Tour of California Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crit and ďŹ rst place in the Coyote Creek Road Race. The race sported a new layout for 2009. The start and ďŹ nish line were located on Constitution Drive between Jefferson Drive and Chrysler Drive, and the course took riders through a 1.4-mile loop around the block. Sound easy? Think again. Although the pavement had its moments, it was relatively smooth, and the course is ďŹ&#x201A;at. Unfortunately, the cover to access the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water kept popping up on the inside of the third turn causing a major hazard for cyclists. It seems to be in the nature of the sport to have these occurrences. If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rain for the Paris-Roubaix, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just too easy. Felipe Buitrago

BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Small World Cafe in San Jose bridges the gap between Filipino and Italian cuisines By Stett Holbrook

A

S A suburban metropolis, one of Silicon Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deďŹ ning architectural features is its strip malls and shopping centers. They are everywhere. Minimalls are where we shop for groceries, pick up our dry cleaning, get coffee and, especially, where we eat. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of good food to be had in these shopping centers, but you have to know how to separate the good from the bland. Shoppingcenter owners love renting space to restaurant chains and franchises because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re known quantities and perceived as a lower risk. But predictability doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make for very interesting eating, so I avoid these places. Instead, I look for independently owned restaurants that bear the personal tastes and quirks of the people who run them. BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Small World Cafe deďŹ nitely falls into that category. The ďŹ rst tip-off was the name. Any place named BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Small World Cafe has got to have a story behind it. BB are the initials of owner Grace Trostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Brian. As for the smallworld part, half of the menu comes from her native Philippines, and the other half is Italian-American with a few American dishes thrown in to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite international cuisine, but Trost thought â&#x20AC;&#x153;small worldâ&#x20AC;? would cover it. Works for

me. As for the unlikely blend of cuisine, Trost says she simply likes Italian food and wanted to offer a broad selection of food to the many office workers who descend on the minimall for lunch at the corner of North First Street and Trimble Road. The restaurant has a homespun quality. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a leather couch with a coffee table in one corner, and tidy glass-topped tables spread about the dining room. A big TV is tuned to sports or news, while light rock ďŹ lls the room and calls into question the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy listening.â&#x20AC;? The real hominess comes from the food. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no effort to be trendy or fancy. This is the kind of food you could imagine your grandmother serving if she happened to be Filipino and had an affection for Italian food. BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is open for lunch and dinner, but lunch seems to be the bigger draw. Prices are low, and the many steam table items mean the food is ready right away. You can get three items and a side dish for $8.95. A 10-spot gets you all-you-can-eat access. The Italian-American dishes like chicken marsala ($8.95) and spaghetti with meat sauce ($7.95) didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t draw me in, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a sucker for a good sandwich and went for the grilled chicken panini ($6.95). The plump chicken breast was

grilled and still juicy and pressed between a good roll and done up with fresh mozzarella cheese and a creamy sun-dried tomato aioli sauce. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure how to classify it since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neither Italian nor American nor Filipino, but the chicken curry ($7.95) is a homey dish that won me over. The creamy sauce is a curiously bright orange and moderately spicy. Trost wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell me whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in it, but she did say it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain coconut milk. I guessed cream or yogurt. For me, the best part of the menu is the Filipino offerings. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had Filipino food before, BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a good place to start. The menu avoids some of the more aggressive shrimp pasteâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; and ďŹ sh sauceâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based ďŹ&#x201A;avors that might put off ďŹ rst-timers. Best of all is the chicken and pork adobo ($6.95 and $7.95, respectively). Adobo is a Spanish-inďŹ&#x201A;uenced dish that gets its signature ďŹ&#x201A;avor from a tangy, savory combination of vinegar, garlic, black pepper and, usually, soy sauce. At BBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Trost lightens up her chicken adobo by removing the skin and trimming the fat, but the dish is still wonderfully ďŹ&#x201A;avorful and great over steamed rice. The pork is just as good. Chunks of pork shoulder are slow cooked in the adobo sauce to produce piquant, juicy bites of tender meat.

Lumpia ($5.95) is the classic Filipino eggroll and quite good here. Made with beef instead of the typical pork, the little, ďŹ nger-size rolls are more ďŹ&#x201A;avorful than other versions Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had because the ground beef ďŹ lling is mixed with eggs, red bell peppers, carrots and onions. Beef mechado ($8.95) tastes like a classic pot roast with hunks of tender beef, potatoes and bell peppers in a thick, tomato-based gravy. Good, too, in a quick, grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen kind of way, is the pancit bihon ($6.95). The dish combines thin rice noodles with celery, cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, green beans and your choice of chicken or pork tossed with a little oil and light soy sauce. Think Filipino chow mein. While theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only available on Thursday and Friday, the sweet and sourish pork ribs ($9.95) are easy to like, too. For dessert, try the halo-halo, the Philippinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; take on an ice cream sundae. The halo-halo supreme ($3.95) loads gummy, sweet palm fruit and other bits of fruit with shaved ice, sweetened milk, chunks of ďŹ&#x201A;an and vanilla or mango ice cream into a tall parfait glass. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough for two and a sweet ending for a sweet little place that deďŹ es strip mall homogeneity.

The Nose Knows

S

WIRL, SNIFF AND SIP. Anyone who drinks wine has probably come across those terms. Perhaps you’ve seen someone, nose deep in wine glass, taking a good long sniff before they taste? While it may look like a ritual reserved for wine snobs, it’s not. Performing these three simple actions will unleash a host of sensory experiences that will increase your appreciation of wine. Our sense of smell is closely related to our sense of taste. That’s why it’s difficult to enjoy a fine steak dinner when you have a cold. Your nasal passages are compromised blocking the aromas of the grilled meat. So the same is true with wine. It’s important to smell the wine as it will enhance the taste and your overall enjoyment. When wine is swirled in the glass, its bouquet or aroma is released. The wine’s nose, as it’s called, reveals its components or flavor profile. Try this with your next glass of either red or white wine. Tilt your glass and put your nose deep into it. Can you smell big, jammy fruit such as black cherries or raspberries? Is the fruit aroma more delicate like orange blossoms or lemon? Is there spice such as cinnamon or cloves, or a hint of vanilla, butter or toast? Can you discern an earthiness or something akin to mushrooms? Think of a glass of wine as a bouquet of flowers with each different fragrance competing for attention. Savor the aromas you’ve identified and build your own wine vocabulary for both red and white wines. There are no wrong descriptors. This is a subjective process, and your experience will be unique to you. Now sip the wine to determine its structure. Allow it to coat the sides of the mouth and tongue on the way down. Notice the various sensations on the tongue, mouth and in the back of the throat. Is the wine dry, sweet or slightly sweet? Do the sides of the tongue feel fizzy; are they tingling? This indicates the level of acidity in the wine. Wine needs acid otherwise it will feel flabby or flat. Does your mouth feel dry or puckered? This is tannin, mostly associated with red wine. If that “dry” feeling is too intense, the wine may need to age longer, as in the case of a youthful cabernet sauvignon. Or it may need to “breathe” allowing time for air to reach the wine to “open” it for maximum enjoyment. After judging the acidity and tannins, feel how long the wine lingers on the tongue. Does it fall off quickly (short finish) or stay around awhile? The longer the better as this indicates a better crafted wine. The various aromas and structure are clues to the type of varietal and country or region of origin. For instance, a California chardonnay will taste different than one from France. This is due, among other things, to the differences in climate, soil and grape growing conditions. California has a longer growing season, for instance, allowing the grapes to stay on the vines longer, producing more fruit-forward wines. In France, with a shorter season, grapes are picked sooner, resulting in less fruit on the palate and earthier characteristics. There are even differences between California regions that produce chardonnay. You can understand these regional differences by a simple and fun experiment. Purchase several bottles of chardonnay (or any wine) from each of two different areas, or appellations, in California. Choose a price range and year so the comparison is balanced. Monterey County, Sonoma, Mendocino or Paso Robles are a few examples. Taste each wine and notice the similarities and differences. Can you determine a flavor profile for the wines from each appellation? While it’s true, the winemaker’s skills affect the outcome of the final product, there should be underlying flavors that are unique to the region. Try this again with another wine, but this time take an international approach selecting varietals from Chile, New Zealand, Argentina or Australia. You’ll be surprised at how much fun learning to taste can be. Mary Jane Reiter

Sowing Seeds

F

IFTY BUCKS doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go very far these days, but a Los Gatos nonproďŹ t organization is hoping to sow seeds of inspiration in young people around the world with $50 donations to promote community gardens. Former Los Gatos and Saratoga high school science teacher A:H@>H=A:Gfounded 8DBBJC>IN<6G9:CH6H6EEA:H::9H with his wife, Susan, to encourage the growth of community gardens. As college students who came of age in Berkeley in the 1960s, the Kishlers are still committed to making the world a better place. Kishler was also inspired by the late Alan Chadwick. Chadwick was a master gardener from England who helped create UCâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s student garden project and in so doing spurred an interest in organic and biodynamic agriculture and the ďŹ eld of agroecology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got interested in helping society do things in a positive way,â&#x20AC;? Les says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to give back.â&#x20AC;? Although he retired after 38 years of teaching, Kishler still teaches a class in agroecology at Los Gatos High and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ďŹ rm believer in community gardens as a source community health, physical and intellectual. By presenting students with a $50 â&#x20AC;&#x153;seed of encouragementâ&#x20AC;? with which to buy garden tools, soil amendments or actual seeds, Kishler hope to inspire students with an interest in community gardens or sustain those already deeply involved. Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the students how to use the money, Kishler says the awards instill a real commitment to the needs of their community garden projects. To date, Kishlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18-month-old group has awarded about 50 stipends to students in Silicon Valley as well as in Ethiopia and Haiti. The Peace Corps and Habitat for Humanity have also received funds. He is also working to donate awards to students in Iraq, Israel and Palestine. The organization has received donations from Whole Foods, the Silicon Valley Real Estate Foundation and individual donors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fifty dollars to a 12-year-old can be a substantial sum of money,â&#x20AC;? Kishler says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A little bit goes a long way.â&#x20AC;? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d to support donate to community Gardens as Appleseeds, go to www.com munitygardensasappleseeds.info for more information. Stett Holbrook (sholbrook@metronews.com)

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

SANDWICH KING !Gbxb{!Ibnbe!ibt!uvsofe!gbmbgfm!nbljoh!joup!bo!bsu/!

Casablanca’s Cafe

C

ASABLANCA’S doesn’t aspire to fine dining, but what it offers instead are some truly great sandwiches, including one of the best falafel sandwiches I’ve ever had. For starters, owner Fawaz Hamad grinds garbanzo beans with onions, garlic, pickled chile peppers, fresh cilantro and parsley and various spices, most noticeably cumin. As a result, the fried garbanzo balls are much more moist and flavorful that your typical falafel. At $5.50, the falafel deluxe is only 50 cents more than the regular falafel sandwich, and it’s the sandwich that you must get because of everything that’s packed into it. In addition to wonderfully creamy hummus, tangy tahini sauce and pickled red cabbage, the falafel deluxe is gilded with strips of baked eggplant, fried cauliflower and fried potatoes. If you like it spicy, the ribbon of shatta (hot sauce) delivers a blast of chile pepper heat. Stett Holbrook (sholbrook@metronews.com)

The Wrath Of ’Chauns Leprechauns in the movies and TV: Say hello to our little friends—plus our St. Paddy’s Day party guide By Richard von Busack

SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL Xbsxjdl!Ebwjt! jt!djofnbÖt!hp.up! mfqsfdibvo/

S

INCE MY great-gran was a Fallon from County Cork, I’m in a unique position to point out the perils of Ireland. The manifold dangers go beyond the usual threats to the liver and the kneecaps. There are scary priests and scarier nuns. There are fogs, bogs and tainted spuds. There are maulings by savage Celtic tigers. (One chomped the hell out of my 401k, and I hadn’t been teasing it or anything.) Top on the list: those little green terrorists that have to be bought off with nightly bowls of milk. The idea of mystical itty-bitties is of Jungian universality, a belief held by everyone from the Cherokees to the Polynesians. Yet surely the leprechaun (Homo Runtus Hibernius) is the most feared on the globe. Film and TV is full of evidence of the fear-inducing little chimeras. Among the most dismaying: Tommy Steele as Og the Leprechaun in the 1968 flop Finian’s Rainbow. This film might have brought the terror of leprechaunism right to our nearby Napa Valley. Fortunately, Fred

Astaire (doomed to the title role) had preferred not to risk his ankles dancing in Francis Ford Coppola’s fields. This particular flop is remembered in John Candy’s commercial for “Finian’s Rainbow Bologna” for SCTV, which changes from a promo for greasy, shiny lunchmeat into a home invasion. Even more dismaying: six crappy opuses in the Leprechaun series. The 1993 original film featured a sawed-off terror who later became too big to stop: Jennifer Aniston. Warwick Davis of Willow made these programmers a teeny annuity, holding his own against threats like “Burn in hell, you little green bastard!” The modern Twilight Zone of the mid-1980s staged “The Leprechaun Artist,” in which an Irish prankster gives X-ray vision to a boy who wishes to see through girls’ clothes. The ’chaun stole this curse from the Roger Corman movie X: Man With the X-ray Eyes. More fondly remembered: the episode “Hoss and the Leprechauns” (Bonanza, 1963). Combining frontier humor with a soggy message of brotherhood, this episode has that bear of little brain

Hoss Cartwright (Dan Blocker) discovering a quintet of ’chauns burying a strongbox of gelt. Reports of leprechauns on the Ponderosa are discounted by the more level-headed Cartwrights. A fishy if full-size Irishman turns up in Virginia City. McCarthy he is called, and with diamond horseshoe stickpin, cane and derby, he’s the image of Joyce’s Blazes Boylan. His blarney (“They’re a darlin’ bunch of little rascals”) begins a massive leprechaun hunt. They are a threat to be reckoned with, since they jump on each other’s shoulders to cold-cock intruders with their makeshift shillelaghs. Unfortunately, there’s a reasonable explanation for all of this—as well as a lesson to be learned at not laughing at people just because they’re tiny and have high little voices. “Their money is the same size as anyone else’s,” says Hoss. Sometimes the sharkjumping TV episodes are the best, aren’t they? Darby O’Gill and the Little People (1959) is justly regarded as the Citizen Kane of leprechaun movies. Though once it was picketed for gross stage Irishisms by Cyril

Cusack himself, it has stood up to a half-century very nicely. Director Jim Sheridan is introducing it this very St. Paddy’s Day at the Irish Film Archive in Dublin. This vintage family film is bound to warm the hearts of children and drunks alike. The typically sturdy direction is by Disney workhorse Robert Stevenson. The romantic lead is a raw young Sean Connery, who acquits himself nicely on a song called “My Darling Irish Girl.” Photographer Winton Hoch also did the cinematography on The Quiet Man, so Ireland (actually California) rarely looked more verdant. The times demand a hero, and twinkling Albert Sharpe is the one: Darby the Leprechaun Fighter, always on the trail of the “murthering little heathens.” Posing as an aged pubyammerer, the old man is secretly a mastermind capable of matching wits with the King Caun, Brian (Jimmy O’Dea): “5,000 years old, and he’s learned a new trick every year.” Such is the adversary that awaits us this March 17, and unfortunately not just in the movies: cunning, ancient and kneehigh to a grasshopper.

First Nights And More ITH AN EYE to some serious social relevance, Teatro Visión opens Water & Power on March 14, with previews March 12–13. The play, written by Richard Montoya and directed by Herbert Sigüenza of the smartly satiric Chicano performance group Culture Clash, EAST L.A. CONFIDENTIAL!!Ufbusp!Wjtj˜o!fyqmpsft! looks at the conjoined fates of two L.A. gbnjmz!boe!uif!Mbujop!esfbn!jo!ÕXbufs!'!Qpxfs-Ö! brothers, one part of the political power pqfojoh!uijt!xfflfoe/ structure and the other a member of the police department. Montoya calls the play a “stage noir . . . about our own Latino demons, ambitions and desires, our very American ideals.” The show, which runs through March 29 at the Mexican Heritage Plaza Theater, is part of Teatro’s 25th anniversary. On Friday at 6pm, Montoya will talk about his work before the preview performance. The Saturday gala includes an afterparty with Culture Clash and music by Los Soneros del Este (fans of Dr. Loco’s Rockin’ Jalapeño Band will recognize some familiar faces). There will also be a free matinee, at 2pm on Sunday. Call 408.272.9926 for info. On Wednesday (March 11), TheatreWorks opens a month-long run of It Ain’t Nothin’ but the Blues, a Broadway musical dedicated to the history of the genre, from its African origins to the Mississippi Delta to Chicago nightclubs. The cast is bolstered by bluesmen “Mississippi” Charles Bevel (one of the show’s co-writers) and UC– Santa Cruz grad Chic Street Man, and includes nearly 40 songs. The show plays at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto; call 650.903.6000 for tickets. BELTING THE BLUES!!Dibsmft!Cfwfm!lopxt!uibu!! Several intriguing shows continue ÕJu!BjoÖu!OpuijoÖ!cvu!uif!CmvftÖ!bu!UifbusfXpslt/ their runs their weekend. Tabard Theatre Company is in the midst of a lively, gospel-inflected musical, Crowns, by Regina Taylor. The show highlights the expressive exuberance of African-American church ladies and their spectacular hats. It runs through March 28 at Theatre on San Pedro Square; call 408.679.2330. Pear Avenue Theatre explores geek culture in Anthony Clarvoe’s Pick Up Ax, which winds up this weekend in Mountain View. The show should evoke some choked-back emotion from programmers who were there in the beginning, when computers really were made in garages; 650.254.1148. Just the other day, Bucky in the comic strip Get Fuzzy was reminded of the time he threw a fit because Rob took him to Cats and there were no real cats in the show. That shouldn’t keep saner theater fans from West Valley Light Opera’s version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s long-running hit, which continues through April 4 at the Saratoga Civic Theatre; call 408.268.3777. And finally, the Campbell Theatre Company brings Thornton Wilder’s Our Town to town this weekend for five shows; see www.campbelltheatrecompany.com for details.

ART REVIEW

Bruni Gallery Turns 10

W

ITH BIG BUSINESSES falling one by one in the down economy, it’s a pleasant surprise when the “little guy” manages to survive. Earlier this month, BRUNI Gallery did just that, celebrating its 10th year at its downtown Campbell location. BRUNI (pronounced brew-nee) Gallery features the work of its namesake, Bruni Sablan, a Brazilian-born artist who specializes in vibrant, colorful portraits of people who have touched and inspired her. “Ten is just a number,” says Mark Gray, director of the gallery. “It just says that much more how amazing a person [Bruni] is, because to survive in the arts is hard.” The Campbell location is the second COLOR CODED Csvoj!Tbcmbo!dsfbuft!csjhiumz! dpmpsfe!qbjoujoht!joàvfodfe!cz!ifs!mpwf!gps!kb{{/! incarnation of the gallery. Its original location was in Old Town Los Gatos for 19 years, but as big franchises such as Banana Republic and the Gap moved in, Sablan realized it was time to move out. “It was impulse: I went to Campbell, but instinct told me something is good here,” Sablan says. For almost 29 years, Sablan has made a niche for herself in the Silicon Valley art scene, where she is famously known for her jazz art series, which depicts the jazz greats of the past and present. So far, Sablan has painted more than 1,300 portraits of jazz musicians, which puts her halfway to her goal. “I was introduced to jazz very early and became in love of it,” she says. Gray, who has worked with Sablan since 1985, explains that Bruni’s love for jazz can be found in all of her art. Whether she’s painting a portrait or an abstract painting, Sablan approaches each piece as if it were a jazz composition. She selects a subject, a person or an emotion, which she translates into the melody of a painting. Then she improvises, to capture the depth and true essence of the subject’s soul. Bruni is also inspired by her homeland, Brazil, and tries to embody the vivacious culture of the Latin America country in each of her paintings. “The colors and the nature itself in Brazil is different,” she says. “Everything takes on a different personality.” The explosion of color, the bright hues and the broad brushstrokes in her paintings work in harmony to create striking images of musical, spiritual and influential figures. By painting those who have inspired her, Sablan hopes her paintings will inspire others to learn about these meaningful figures. “My one wish is when someone goes in [the gallery] and sees a painting that catches their eye, they go and find out, ‘Why did Bruni paint it like that? What are they about?” Andrea Frainier

BRUNI Gallery is open daily, 1:30–6pm. It’s located at 394 E. Campbell Ave., Campbell (408.370.4700). The gallery will host an open house on Saturday, March 21. HX]dda#LZY!BVg&&!*",eb# ;gZZ#<Vk^aVc8daaZ\Z!*%** HVciVIZgZhV7akY!<^agdn! )%-#-)+#).,)#

Trial by Jury

The Russian feature ‘12’ puts an Eastern spin on classic jury drama ‘12 Angry Men’ By Richard von Busack

F

ULSOME, windy and yet somehow strangely interesting, the Oscarnominated Russian film 12 shows that no one will ever master the art of the harangue as well as those who dwell on the east side of the Urals. The film is a stagy palimpsest of the American juryroom drama 12 Angry Men, filmed twice here, once famously by Sidney Lumet and once for television by William Friedkin. In this version, the hot-button topic is again racism. A Chechen punk (Apti Magamaev) is on trial for his life in Moscow, where he supposedly knifed a former Russian Army officer. Adding to the cloudiness of the case is a veritable 52-pickup game of class-card playing. Russian director Nikita Mikhalkov takes the opposite tactic from the Lumet staging, which consisted of a sweaty closet-size jury room during a heat wave. The air conditioner was on the fritz, and 11 beefy New Yorkers and Henry Fonda were stuck in close quarters for a Festivusworthy airing of grievances. It’s dead winter; the deliberation room is a high school gym, commandeered by the government for jury sequestering. A ratty, Sovietera heating pipe rumbles and groans across the ceiling. We cross-cut to the Islamic prisoner, taken out of his cage of white enamel-painted rebar and tossed into a cell to await sentencing. In flashback we see the Chechen’s own experience of life in a war zone, little understood by the jurors

deliberating his fate. They’re all male, all white Russian, all middle-aged. (I had the same reaction to watching this version of 12 Angry Men as I did to watching all previous versions. This is a jury of peers? Someone seriously screwed up the voir dire.) What seems like a slam-dunk sentencing for life in prison is interfered with by a soft-spoken, Richard Jenkins–like electrical engineer, played by Sergei Makovetsky. He has his doubts about the young man’s guilt and decides to be the lone holdout. For various personal and prejudicial reasons, the other 11 members are slow to follow the engineer’s lead. And the choleric voice in favor of the prosecution is a bull-like Moscow cab driver (Sergey Garmash, a Slavic Lee Marvin) who doesn’t like the defendant any more than he likes the defendant’s race. Soon joining the engineer in his opposition is a Jewish juror (Valentin Gaft); he is old-school, like the warm-hearted Jews in 1950s American movies. What’s interesting in 12 is not the plot. This warhorse plot works no matter how you load it, with aggravation levels rising, and burning cigarettes crackling like the fuse on a bomb. It’s not the rigor of debate and the sense of reasonable doubt being expanded upon, either. In this version of the play, we get evidence that somehow was slept through or kept out of the courtroom. Unlike some of the classic courtroom dramas, we don’t get a hand in picking through

the evidence and figuring out who the killer was. The 12 jurors essentially retry the case with fresh evidence while they’re sitting in the room—they figure it all out through common sense. As the accused murderer is onscreen, rather than off-screen as in previous versions, we’re on his side. Mikhalkov’s staging of the war scenes is effectively brutal and loud—a visceral condemnation of Russia’s Forever War in Chechnya. Slices of flashback tell us the boy’s story. He is rendered homeless after his house is demolished and his mother is killed. We have the sense that no refuge is safe enough for the Chechen boy; the war first pins him down in the street and then follows him down into a sewer, full of twisted corpses. We’re ready to let him walk, no matter whom he might have killed. Condemning the nouveau riche who are letting their country rot, Mikhalkov applies thick Russian humor. One of the jurymen, played by the Carl Reinerish Yuriy Stoyanov, comes across as the old caricature of a perfume-spraying Harvardeducated capitalist. The jury can be clownish, horsing around with a student’s discarded bra or making some heavy jokes about one juror’s young girlfriend. A chirping sparrow flies into the room and represents the better angel of these quarrelers’ nature—the bird gets cute reaction shots and eventually lets fly on the cabbie’s head. The camera work is nimble and rapid, and the cast members

react well to each other, like a team that has been playing the material onstage for a year. Every point has a counterpoint. When the Communist Party is denounced as the source of all criminality—“They lied for privilege, for power and out of habit”— someone else replies that he had a relative who was a functionary in the party, and he wore himself out until he died of anxiety. Another confesses to work- place corruption—of an elaborate trick for scamming bereaved widows. But he pleads mitigating circumstances, in that he sends the scammed money back to his poor village. “Is it different where you work?” he asks the jurors, and of course, the audience as well. This one-two punch of guilt and extenuation only seems like controversy. The real skill in making a drama is making us understand someone’s criminal behavior even without explanation. The ambient corruption of post-Communist Russia in 12 is thick enough that everyone watching would understand why people do what they must to survive. Still, 12 bravely puts up its damning accusation against the lawlessness, cronyism and sloth that’s kept Russia crippled since ancient times.

12 (159 min.), directed by Nikita Mikhalkov, written by Mikhalkov, Vladimir Moiseyenko and Aleksandr Novototsky, photographed by Vladislav Opelyants and starring Sergei Makovetsky, opens March 13 at selected theaters.

Dark Rooms In â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Everlasting Moments,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; an early 20th-century Swedish woman learns the new art of photography

T

HIS WORLD doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give women much to smile about, which means that a forceful, plain actress who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a smiler can make room for herself in the movies. Melissa Leo in Frozen River and Barbara SaraďŹ an in Moscow, Belgium have company in the form of Maria Heiskanen. She plays the heroine of the Swedish import Everlasting Moments, a story of a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s persistence. Maria has seven children and a brutish husband: everything needed for tragedy except the hopelessness. In 1907 in the seaside town of Malmo, Maria settles down with Sigfrid, called Siggi (Mikael Persbrandt), an ex-sailor who has the sailorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s custom of drinking and womanizing. Before they married, Siggi and Maria went half and half on a lottery ticket and won a camera. After one of Siggiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many scrapes with the law, Maria goes in to sell the camera and meets the one man who will truly care for her. The camera-store owner, Pedersen (Jesper Christensen), is a Dane; like the Finnish Maria, he is a foreigner in Sweden. He tutors Maria in the new art of photography. Christensen played an intimidating villain in the Daniel Craig Bonds. A pair of spectacles softens his Medici proďŹ le, and his pet hound dog removes any lingering sense of menace. Maria begins photographing her neighbors as a hobby, and her art has a healing effect; for instance, photographing a dead child gives the mother a chance to keep the girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image alive. World War I brings on shortages. Siggiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s destructive binges and jealousy (unforgivable, since he has a barmaid girlfriend on the side) interfere further with Mariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photography. Director Jan Troell has a great gift with this period, as he showed in The Emigrants (1971) and The New Land (1972). The sepia-tone look mixed with hand-held camerawork isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remarkably evocative, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t freeze the picture as a costume drama might. It took skill not to make this story a temperance melodrama. Persbrandt brings life to Siggi, a character who could have been a human club. Troell gives him the endearing habit of being good with horses; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wife beater, but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand to see someone thrash a horse. Films in general are presumed to have a left-wing bias. What they actually have is a populist bias, and more often than not, that bias leans left. Everlasting Moments, however, makes its own conservatism apparent: small business is the only force that can pull this family out of povertyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that and a nongovernmental agency, the White Flower Temperance movement. Maria is too proud to accept ofďŹ cial charity, even on the grounds that her husband is in jail. And her happiest day occurs when a newspaper prints her photo of a conference of Scandinavian royals. When Siggi gets into police trouble with a strike at the docks, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s considered just more foolishnessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a strong-backed, weak-minded type who got stirred up with talk of anarchy. The narration, by Mariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Maja, advances the action but ďŹ&#x201A;attens the charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; motives, the way narration usually does. The spirited Heiskanen is the reason to see this ďŹ lm. Her determination and refusal of self-pity are what will attract female viewers, and her performance is most authentically like the world of our great-grandmothers. Richard von Busack EVERLASTING MOMENTS (Unrated; 131 min.), directed by Jan Troell, written by Troell, Niklas RadstrĂśm and Agneta Ulfsäter-Troell, photographed by Mischa Gavrjusjov and starring Maria Heiskanen, opens March 13 at Camera 3 in San Jose.

The Last House on the Left (R; 110 min.) Director Wes Craven recently admitted he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be seeing the upcoming remake of his classic horror ďŹ lm Nightmare on Elm Street. Guess he has to go to this remake of his 1972 shocker Last House on the Left, though, because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-producing it with his son. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a fun one to hear about for the rest of your life, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hate you, Dad! You missed that science fair in eighth grade, and you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to the screening of the Last House on the Left remake we made together!â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x153;Son, I wanted to wait until you were old enough to tell you this, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time you knew the truth. That remake sucked. Big time. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the hell we were thinking!â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x153;No! No! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not true! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible!â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x153;Search your feelings, you know it to be true.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nooooooooooo!â&#x20AC;? (Opens Mar 13.)

It was about these two orphans with spooky powers who have to get away from an evil guy who wants to exploit them. UFOs were also involved. For some reason, this seemed like the greatest thing ever to us. There were all these sequels and remakesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;somebody always seemed to either be escaping to Witch Mountain or from Witch Mountain or something. Now hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another remake, with new orphans and the Rock as the guy trying to save them. What this has to do with a race I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ gured out. (Opens Mar 13.) (SP) 12 (Unrated; 159 min.) See review on page 51. Watchmen (R; 163 min.) In 1985, in a parallel universe where Nixon has been president for a generation, the Cold War has been held in check by an American atomic Superman, a disassociative demigod known as Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup, looking like an indigo Ben Kingsley). After a public meltdown, he vanishes, leaving behind his lover, Laurie (Malin Akerman), and the beginnings of a seemingly inevitable nuclear war. Less noticed is the brutal murder of a former CIA assassin (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The killing is investigated by a dogged but disordered masked man, Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley), and his former partner (Patrick Wilson), the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good cop. The intricate but rewarding adaptation of the MooreGibbons graphic novel by Zach Snyder invites comparison to Kubrick, for chill and scope, as well as occasional wonkiness. Crudup has all the power and remoteness of a deity. Read a full-length review online at www.metroactive.com. (Plays valleywide.) (RvB)

Reviews The Class (PG-13; 128 min.) In taking the pressurecooker atmosphere of a high-school classroom and making it absolutely compelling, Laurent Cantet’s film shows the excitement of doing a desperately important job. The school in Paris we see here isn’t old-school in any sense of the word. Students of every nationality in the old French sphere of influence attend. François Bégaudeau plays what he is in real life: a correct, graceful, unflappable teacher who can handle what his always-chafing kids throw at him. (RvB) Coraline (PG; 100 min.) A stop-motion animated masterpiece by the credited director of Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas, Henry Selick. In 3-D, this is a fascinating and strangely beautiful tale. A blue-haired Oregon girl discovers a magical portal and takes up a chimerical parallel existence just on the inside of her new house’s wall. Coraline (voiced by Dakota Fanning) discovers Other Parents waiting for her. They load Coraline’s plate with cakes, flatter her and charm her. The only hitch is that this Other Mother and Other Father have shiny black Raggedy Ann–style buttons for eyes. Coraline’s help in the trouble to come is the skeptical feral cat who walks between worlds. The changing rapport between mom and daughter (as well as between the not-mom and daughter) makes this a very womanly tale. The men are off to the side in a power struggle between maiden, mother and very bad crone. (RvB) Gomorrah (Unrated; 137 min.) One of the least romanticized movies about organized crime ever made. Director Matteo Garrone is, in a sense, going up against his entire country. The film weaves a quintet of stories out of this battlefront. Young Toto, a delivery boy, gets a job with the local drug gangs. The unsavory waste-removal magnate Franco (Toni Servillo) is clandestinely burying toxic waste in a marble quarry. Two young antic idiots, addled by visions of Pacino in Scarface, take up some stolen guns and go on a minor crime spree. The middle-aged Don Ciro (Gianfelice Imparto) is a clerk for the local mob. Director Garrone is outraged, but it hasn’t made him inarticulate. He presumes the viewer is not a thug, and not in the mood to watch torture. When it comes, the violence comes out of nowhere; it’s scary, and it hurts. (RvB) The International (R; 118 min.) Tom Tykwer’s newest opens with promise: heavy rain, a trench-coated figure, the exterior of the main Berlin railway station; an unshaven and troublesome operative (Clive Owen) watching two men in a car. That’s almost as good as it gets: the plot unspirals in scads of steel and glass buildings, with windows that only give the appearance of openness. Inside the largest is a deadly omniscient bank—modeled on the BCCI. The rogue financial institution is killing off anyone who tries to figure out its skullduggery. Interpol Agent Salinger (Owen) and an NYC assistant DA (Naomi Watts) try their best to figure out the who, what and when. It makes for a lot of squandered intensity on Owens’ part; Tykwer, nose to the grindstone, keeps promising to start a great chase and then pulls back from that repeatedly. Highlight: a memorable cowboying duel of Uzis in which the Guggenheim itself gets ventilated like a colander. (Tragic, but Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings leak anyway). The movie persists for another half-hour untila sort-of finale at Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, where the cast tries to ignore the graffiti reading “007 was here.” The International drowns in its own seriousness. (RvB) Moscow, Belgium (Unrated; 102 min.) Hard-bitten single mom (Barbara Sarafian) from an unlovely corner of Ghent meets none-too-stable truck driver Johnny (Jurgen Delnaet). But there’s another party to complicate this affair. Matty’s co-

worker notes that sexual passion lasts exactly six months. It’s been five months and a couple of weeks since Matty’s husband, Werner, left Matty for his little girlfriend, and now he’s back trying to chat her up and start things afresh. If a lady in a movie is given a choice between a goodhearted crudester and a sophisticated cheater, it’s fairly easy to guess how everything will come out. Still, Moscow, Belgium is a film in which only the practical, fleshy things matter. Director Christophe van Rompaey’s lovable working-class romance has the common sense to remind us that the grave is the only certainty. (RvB) Push (PG-13, 111 min.) Going Hong Kong this time, director Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) coasts through the night markets so many times that he’s like a shopper who forget something. David Bouria’s script boils with stolen X-Men tropes. Push concerns nine different types of metahumans, all with different powers, running amok in the Chinese megalopolis. Meanwhile, an evil bald version of Charles Xavier, called Henry Carver (Djimon Hounsou), tries to round up all the strange beings. Stealing the show is Dakota Fanning as a “Watcher” named Cassie, who is trying to clarify the visions she has about the imminent death of both herself and the telekinetic “mover,” Nick Gant (Chris Evans). Small-camera aesthetics and some colorful effects make this a bit different in look, if not in the least in story. (RvB) The Reader (R; 123 min.) The Reader is a combination of guilt-by-association grandstanding and lostlove maundering: I mean the kind of first love that keeps a person from ever functioning properly for the rest of his life, the kind of first love even devoted moviegoers don’t really believe in anymore. The story has a point: some 60,000 people worked at Auschwitz, and only a handful ever served jail time for it. The legacy of guilt would take some unusual, unsuspected forms. The film sets up the moral dilemma, as emphasized by screenwriter David Hare—what if you loved a Nazi? There’s an essential cruelty to Bernhard Schlink’s popular novel that disguises itself—as cruelty often will—as sensitivity. The Reader insists that the Nazis were human beings and that reading might have reformed them. We’re aware of the former. But reading in the abstract means little. In fact the Nazis were great, swooning readers, and Goebbels was a novelist. (RvB) Slumdog Millionaire (R; 120 min.) A movie about Indian poverty even the Wall Street Journal could love (and did). Danny Boyle’s grotty, sentimental adventure concerns a winner on an Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, hosted by a subcontinental Regis Philbin (Anil Kapoor). Jamal (Dev Patel) screws up his face as he tries to remember the answers. In flashback, we learn how Jamal climbed out of the horrendous Mumbai slums. Boyle reprises some of the bits that made him famous in Trainspotting, but in this film-festival hit, the square peg of Bombay ghetto life is driven into the round hole of a Dickensian plot. (RvB) Two Lovers (R; 110 min.) Gwyneth Paltrow’s Michelle is an uninspired cipher, a gold digger with a heart of gold. Joaquin Phoenix does as best he can with director and co-writer and coproducer James Gray’s mawkish work. His Leonard has just come home to live again with his parents (Isabella Rossellini and Moni Moshonov). The boy is “sensitive” and clearly suicidal. Michelle, “trouble” stamped all over her lovely frame, moves in upstairs. She and Leonard have a not-so-cute meet, and she adopts him as a needy brother. He, of course, lusts after all of her WASPy fabulousness. Phoenix’s job here is to make Leonard’s boyman’s plight shine bright to the audience. He shambles, he mutters, he takes listless photos. It’s not Phoenix’s fault that James Gray chose the fatal triangulation of writerdirector-producer; such myopic immersion always results off-kilter, and Leonard is not a sympathetic character for most over age 16. (GG)

Wendy and Lucy (R; 80 min.) A gently made, simple story, with a great deal of compassion in it. As in director Kelly Reichardt’s previous feature, Old Joy, the Oregon surroundings mellow things out, while the sense of brewing financial trouble keeps the tension going. If you’ve ever had the foolish reverie of getting a sleeping bag and heading to the rail yards to hop a freight train north, Wendy and Lucy idealizes that dream even while not succumbing to it. At one point, we see heroine Wendy Carroll (Michelle Williams), wearing a small blue riding hood, in a open boxcar cruising among the dreamy, foggy trees. Reichardt’s provides

further realism in the use of natural sound, with occasional unsynched noise, such as the dubbing of a blare of train horns over talk at a campfire. Finally, as in Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy is about broke people trying to cope. Some poorer members of the audiences who see Wendy and Lucy will think this is a great movie on those grounds alone. Maybe they’ll just be responding to the attention they get so rarely. (RvB) The Wrestler (R; 109 min). Like the greatest Rocky movie ever, made by someone with much better taste than Stallone. Director Darren

[53]

Aronofsky never saw a bell he didn’t want to ring like a cable-car conductor, but this is by far his most humane and seasoned work. The Hulk Hoganish wrestler Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) had one great day of glory 20 years ago, his triumph against the bad-guy wrestler the Ayatollah. Now held together with duct tape, Randy lives in a Jersey trailer park. A fanboy/promoter approaches the wrestler and proposes a rematch. The rot of Jersey brings its own sadness. Marisa Tomei brings it, too; the shock of her physical exposure is noteworthy, but the real acting is all in her face. (RvB)

The Lineup Cinequest 2009 wraps, beginning the countdown to Cinequest 2010

I

T IS only 350 days or so until Cinequest 20, starting Feb. 24, 2010. In the meantime, the last festival just wrapped; 81,000 attendees were reported at this Top 10 destination ďŹ lm festival. The top honor went to Firaaq by Nandita Das; in some ways, this Maverick Spirit Award winner was Cinequestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer to Slumdog Millionaire, focusing as it did on the religious strife between Hindus and Muslims. The Audience Award for Best Feature was a tie between Mark Tranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All About Dad and Dror Zahaviâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s For My Father. The similar titles perhaps cast some doubt on whether the audience knew which ďŹ lm they were voting for, although the subject matters couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more different: Tranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ lm is a Sunnyvale-set comedy of intergenerational conďŹ&#x201A;ict, while Zahaviâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ lm is a story of the love between a suicide bomber and an Israeli woman. The audience voted San Joseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dana Nachman and Don Hardyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Witch Hunt the best documentary in show. The jury award for Best First Feature went to The Friend by Micha Lewinsky. The Special Jury Award for Narrative Feature went to Goran Markovicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Tour. The epic-length Argentine drama Historias Extraordinarias by Mariano Llinas won the Global Visions Award. Former Fremont resident Tom Huangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Why Am I Doing This? won the New Vision Award. Beth Toni Kruvantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heart of Stone and Mark Hopkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders won the Best Documentary and Special Jury Award for Documentary Feature, respectively. Anja Marquardt, of Berlin and New York, won for Best Student Short, Thanksgiving. Frederica Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s script Ora won the ďŹ rst place in the screenplay competition, leading Feed the Monster by Rob Rex. Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cody Yarborough won third place for his script The Juno Incident. Speaking of Juno and incidents, after an onstage interview with Lew Hunter, Diablo Cody returned home without incident as a Maverick Spirit Award winner. She, Louis Gossett Jr. and Kevin Pollak both have fuller mantelpieces today. As for the twitter competition announced, here are the top guns: Twitterer â&#x20AC;&#x153;Puppymeatâ&#x20AC;? wins for his reliably short summation of the bill of fare at the fest: â&#x20AC;&#x153;JOHNNY MAD DOG: Awesomely brutal, brutally awesomeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on crack.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;KILLER POET: Fascinating doc of 2 people. Norman, a 2x murderer from MA. JJ a poet in Chicago. Same person, 40+ years apart.â&#x20AC;? Second place went to Alejandro Adams, whose avant-garde speculative ďŹ ction ďŹ lm Canary caused reliable polarization in the audience: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honored to have CANARY in same programming section as Johnny Mad Dog but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change category title from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;provocationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;assault.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Third place goes to Beekerstudios, whose summing up of the postmumblecore Billy Was a Deaf Kid is excellent matchbookese: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billy was a Deaf Kid: mundane life brought 2 life, day in the life of an adventure in a small town, riding a couch through a carwash.â&#x20AC;? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to all competitors: whether gnomic 140 word or less typists, or actual full-ďŹ&#x201A;edged independent ďŹ lmmakers.

Son of Byford

Seminal rapper Darryl McDaniels talks about the birth of hip-hop and Run-D.M.C.’s route to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame By Gabe Meline

W

STILL ‘RAISING HELL’ Svo.E/N/D/Öt!Ebsszm! NdEbojfmt!lopxt!ijq. ipq!dbo!cf!cfuufs!uibo! ju!xbt!cbdl!jo!uif!ebz/

E ARE the hip-hop generation. That’s what they call us, at least. We’re the ones for whom hip-hop was never a threat. To whom hip-hop never was anything but an inspiration, a shared language, a code of conduct, an infinite subject matter, an empowerment. We grew up through hip-hop, yes, but more importantly, we grew out through hip-hop. We owe a lot of it to RunD.M.C. We’re the ones who heard “Peter Piper” and “Proud to Be Black” and thought, damn, that’s way more raw than Richard Marx. Why are all the songs on the radio about love? I’m not in love, man. If anything, I’m in traction. A whole lot to say and no way to say it. “It’s Tricky”—now, there’s a song. Dudes just rap what’s on their mind, straight up. We would spend hours transcribing their lyrics, those two dudes, and we’d argue about who we liked more. Run was easily excitable, prone to overload. D.M.C. was a little raspier, a little

wiser-sounding. “Son of Byford” told it all: he had a family, he had friends and he had rhymes— which, as we loved to repeat on the playground, were McDaniels, not McDonald’s. I was in the D.M.C. camp. He seemed more real. I first learned about Jesse Owens and Malcolm X though D.M.C. I learned about everyday life on the other side of the country and about brotherhood, and a lot of other things that Richard Marx wasn’t talking about. So when Darryl McDaniels, the D.M.C. in RunDMC, called my house, I allowed myself to be a little anxious. McDaniels is on a national lecture tour in advance of the group’s April 4 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, talking about the history of hiphop, and there may be no person aside from his band mate Run with better experience to draw upon. Even so, McDaniels was hesitant to do lectures until he talked to Chuck D from Public Enemy. “For the longest time I was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no,’” McDaniels tells me

from his home in New Jersey. “But then Chuck was like, ‘Yo, D, you need to go do lectures, man. You’re sayin’ something people need to hear.’” McDaniels’ story offers a look into hip-hop before the music industry seized it and promoted it coast to coast. He talks about meeting Run and Jam Master Jay on 205th Street and Hollis Avenue, hanging out and writing rhymes. He talks about setting up DJ equipment in 192 Park in Hollis and writing rhymes. He talks about getting kicked out of the hallways of his apartment building and retreating to the alley and writing rhymes. “With or without the music business, before rap was on the record, it was already there,” McDaniels says, adding that college kids born the year of Run-D.M.C.’s breakthrough album Raising Hell might not recognize the organic genesis of hip-hop. “They think it’s all about Billboard magazine, and havin’ your record in high rotation on the radio and havin’ a good label. It ain’t nothin’ like

that. It’s about havin’ something to say in a creative way. So I’m thinkin’, if these kids can hear, maybe hip-hop would get more creative, innovative, inspirational, motivational and educational.” Inspiration and motivation aren’t exclusive to McDaniels’ era of hip-hop, but he points out that they used to be ideals rather than accidental byproducts. The world is filled with well-educated rappers fronting about drugs and violence; in hip-hop’s early days in New York City, it was the other way around. “Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation was a street gang in New York, but they turned something bad into something good!” McDaniels emphasizes. “Most of the rappers that made positive records were drug dealers, stickup kids and murderers, but when they stepped to the microphone, they would say, ‘Don’t do what I’m doin’! There’s a better way for you! Go to school, read a book, learn about your history!’” Run-D.M.C. often gets credit *-

along with producer Rick Rubin for breaking down the wall between rock and rap with guitar-driven tracks like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock Boxâ&#x20AC;? and the Aerosmith collaboration â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walk This Way.â&#x20AC;? The idea wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just some marketing ploy, McDaniels says, but a natural cohesion with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;white rock kidsâ&#x20AC;? who were early fans: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about kids that were listening to Lou Reed, the Ramones, Sid Vicious. We had those punk-rock kids in our shows before we even put a guitar on it, because rock & roll and hip-hop is brother and sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;controversial, innovative, creative, energetic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same feelinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? McDaniels continues excitedly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but different expression. These kids was lookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Run-D.M.C., and sayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yo, I know this! This is familiar to me! This is me!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a black-and-white thing. We was rappinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sneakers, chicken, collard greens. You know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? We was rappinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about what everybody was livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. When I do my lectures, I talk to the kids and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a black-and-white thing, a rich or poor thing. Hip-hop, whether in Beverly Hills or in the ghettoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there together for those hours at the concert or listening to a rap record, we all on the same level. After itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over, we can look at each other and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next for Run-D.M.C. is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, an inevitable honor (last year, Grandmaster Flash became the ďŹ rst hip-hop artist inducted). Though most honorees perform at the induction ceremony, Run-D.M.C. has been disbanded since the fatal shooting of DJ Jam Master Jay in 2002, and McDaniels responds immediately and somberly to the idea that the two remaining members perform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it without Jay. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be runninâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; around without Jay. We was more people than just music.â&#x20AC;? McDaniels, who was diagnosed in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s with a rare larynx disorder that gives him a high-pitched voice, has won a Congressional Award for his work in foster care and adoption services after ďŹ nding out that he, too, was adopted. (He does not plan to change the lyrics to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Son of Byford.â&#x20AC;?) Hip-hop remains his ďŹ rst love, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to gauge how avidly he follows the genre he helped create. He balks at the success of Lilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wayne, and says the last new rapper he was impressed by was DMX, who began making albums more than 10 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where do I see hip-hop heading?â&#x20AC;? McDaniels asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good question. I have no idea where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heading. I just know what we can do with it. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Causeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;put it like thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want hip-hop to be like it was back in the day. I want it to be better than it was back in the day. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause I know it can be.â&#x20AC;? M

ADVICE GODDESS MARCH 11-17, 2009 M E T R O S I L I C O N VA L L E Y

the advice goddess

amyalkon adviceamy@aol.com

A woman wrote me on an online dating site. Her profile said she was 42. I’m 37, which isn’t a big age difference, so we went out. We had a blast and were planning to go out again when she emailed and confessed she’ll be 49 in August. She seemed really cool, had a great sense of humor and looked older than 42, but was definitely still cute. Should I be worried she might have other surprises in store? —Numbers Racket On the bright side, you don’t mention discovering that 125 really is her weight— from the knees down. A seasoned shopper on an online dating site doesn’t just wonder if everybody’s lying, he expects it. People will tell you right in their profile that honesty is extremely important to them—then sandwich that claim between more fudge than you can buy in one of those candy stores you see in the mall. And, because men and women have different hard-wired preferences for what they seek in a partner, they lie about different things. Men tend to lie about their height and income (and get photographed in front of a Jag—the one parked next to their beater Nissan). Women are likely to lie about their age and weight (“more of me to love” equals “plan to pick me up for dates with a crane”). Deception has always played a big part in romantic marketing. Mascara is a lie. Wearing a slimming color is a lie. Frankly, deodorant is a lie, but let’s hope the masses continue to embrace olfactory dishonesty. Of course, in person, control-top pantyhose only control so much. Online, people can get away with much more. When they create their dating profile, they aren’t lying to somebody’s face, they’re lying on a resume they’re sending off into the ether. And, they aren’t doing it as themselves, but as GolfBeast or ChocolateLuvr89. So, you see

“Husky dude with most of his hair and a quirky sense of adventure . . .”—instead of “Male-pattern-balding, out-of-shape weirdo, teetering between thoughts of suicide and mass murder, seeks model.” Many of these hyperbolists seem to forget that there’s going to be some point of reckoning. Or, they keep telling themselves they’re planning on losing the weight or rolling off the couch and looking for a job. If they can just entice you into going out with them, they’ll have you so charmed, maybe you won’t notice or care that they have, oh, antlers and a tail. As for Miss 42-and-counting, try to have a little compassion. Guys tend to go for younger or much-younger women, and guys on dating sites do searches with an age cutoff, which means she never gets the chance to be judged for her looks instead of her age. In the flesh-and-bones world, this would be like giving guys in a bar the ability to click a box in the air to make every woman over 45 disappear. Regarding your worry that she might have “other surprises” in store, consider it a good sign that she confessed her real age after the first date. If you don’t think she’s too old for you, keep dating her, and see whether she seems inclined toward convenient dishonesty. There’s a good chance you’ve heard the worst of it—assuming she’s free of confounding medical issues like an undescended testicle.

I met this girl on an online dating site, and we exchanged roughly 10 emails there, maybe 10 more on our personal accounts, and about 15 texts. This was all before our first date (scheduling conflicts kept us from meeting for several weeks). After our date, I knew I wasn’t interested, but I feel I owe her more than an emailed ‘thanks, but no thanks’ since we had all this correspondence. —Oddly Connected Imagine walking up to a stranger in a parking lot and telling them you’re worried about your mom’s gallbladder. That’s pretty much what you did with this girl. And then, because you spilled, and she spilled, and then you both spilled some more, you started to feel connected—before you actually knew what you were connecting to. I used to joke “Never have sex before the first date,” but these days, with everybody’s capability for constant instant communication, there’s

a real need for the advice “Never start a relationship before the first date.” Since you only have the illusion of a relationship, all you owe this girl is an email telling her you had a good time but felt you didn’t “click.” In the future, try to meet the girl as soon as possible, or maintain near radio silence until you do, lest you start acting all “You complete me” when it’s possible the message you’ll eventually want to send is “You! Delete me!”

ROB BREZSNY

xffl!pg!nbsdi!22 xxx/gsffxjmmbtuspmphz/dpn

6g^Zh(March 21–April 19): Ancient Greek

philosopher Pythagoras is known as “the father of numbers.” He taught that mathematics provides the ultimate truth about reality. His otherwise productive career went through a rough patch when one of his students found that the square root of two is an “irrational” number that can’t be expressed as a simple fraction. “Impossible!” said Pythagoras. His system was built on the axiom that there are no such numbers. Yet he couldn’t refute the student’s proof. By some accounts, Pythagoras had the student drowned for his impunity. The brilliant theorist couldn’t deal with the threat to his dogma. I bring this to your attention, Aries, because you have an opportunity to do what Pythagoras couldn’t: accept the evidence that your beliefs about reality are limited, and incorporate the new data into a revised worldview.

IVjgjh(April 20–May 20): “One often meets one’s destiny on the road taken to avoid it,” says a French proverb. Sometimes, in fact, you can’t even get properly aligned with your highest potential unless you try to escape it. Only by seeking an alternate route are you led into the circumstances that ultimately activate the fullness of your gifts. These mysteries will soon have personal meaning for you, Taurus. Upcoming plot twists will lead you to where you didn’t even know you needed to go. <Zb^c^(May 21–June 20): Chris Farley was “a wrecking ball of joy,” according to one of his friends. The Saturday Night Live comedian loved to provoke merriment wherever he went, relentlessly shepherding the mood toward celebratory exuberance. I’m not saying you should try to ignite conviviality with that much ferocity in the coming days, Gemini. But I do think this is a special phase of your astrological cycle, when you have an extraordinary capacity for spreading witty inspiration and catalytic fun—and for collecting the useful rewards generated by that good stuff. 8VcXZg(June 21–July 22): As I compose your horoscope, I’m sitting in a restaurant in San Francisco’s Chinatown dining on something the menu refers to as a Milky Golden Prize Delight Bun. And I’m thinking, I bet it’s going to be a kind of Milky Golden Prize Delight week for you Cancerians . . . a Sweet Creamy Lusty Elixir week . . . a Rich Thick Tasty Brilliance week. If you can manage it, I suggest you try to have a dream one of these nights in which you find a delicious morsel of the sun in a bowl of pudding, and savor it all while listening to the full moon sing you a thrilling lullaby. AZd(July 23–Aug. 22): I predict that you will go

to a grungy thrift store to shop for bargain kitchen items but will instead buy a magic snow globe depicting a dolphin drinking beer from a fountain that’s shaped like a silver stiletto pump, and when you get this talisman home you will discover that it gives you the power to hover and cruise a few feet off the ground, plus tune in to the secret thoughts of people who confuse you, and even time-travel into the past for brief ten-minute blasts that allow you to change what happened. And if my prediction’s not accurate in every detail, I bet it will nonetheless be metaphorically true.

K^g\d(Aug. 23–Sept. 22): The foxglove plant can either be a hex or a healer. If you eat its flowers, your heart rate will zoom to a dangerous rate and your digestive system will go haywire. If, on the other hand, you have certain cardiac problems and partake of the foxglove’s leaves, they will steady and strengthen your heart. I bet you can think of several influences in your life whose powers can be equally contradictory. According to my reading of the omens, it’s an excellent time to get very clear about the differences, and take steps to ensure that you’ll be exposed as little as possible to the negative effects. A^WgV(Sept. 23–Oct. 22): The agitation and commotion seem to be dying down. The bitching and moaning are diminishing. And yet, from what I can tell, the Big Squeeze is still squeezing you, which probably means that it’s going to get trickier for you to extricate yourself. Want my advice? Don’t take “maybe” for an answer. Negotiate with a mischievous look in your eye. Learn more about the productive value of unpredictability by studying three-yearolds and free spirits who have nothing to lose. Most importantly, do whatever it takes to deflect the propaganda and slip past the symbolic gestures so that you can penetrate to the core of the real feelings.

HXdge^d(Oct. 23–Nov. 21): “Here’s what I’m

looking for,” said a personal classified I read online. “Someone who can tear me away from living inside my head . . . who sees things in me that I don’t see myself.” That’s exactly what I want for you right now, Scorpio. Whether this someone shows up in the form of an ally or enemy or beloved animal or invisible friend, I don’t care. The important thing is that he or she awakens you to certain mysteries about you that you’ve been blind to, and helps free you from the unconscious delusion that all of reality is contained inside the boundaries of your skull.

HV\^iiVg^jh(Nov. 22–Dec. 21): This would be a

perfect week to practice writing love letters. It’s not yet a favorable time to actually send the love letters you compose, however. You need some work before you’ll be ready to produce the finished products. You’ve got to drain off the chatter that’s at the top of your head before you’ll be able to penetrate to the more interesting truths that lie at the bottom of your heart. But if you do your homework—churn out, say, at least three eruptions of rabid amour—you’ll prepare yourself well to craft a thoughtful meditation that will really have a chance to make an impact.

8Veg^Xdgc(Dec. 22–Jan. 19): I decided to call

my cable TV company to inquire about a mistake on my bill. From past experience, I suspected this would be a visit to the suburbs of hell. My expectations were soon fulfilled. After being cycled through three phases of the automated system, I was told by a machine that I’d get to speak with an actual person in 16 minutes. Then I was delivered into the aural torment of recorded smooth jazz. But a minute into the ordeal, something wonderful happened. The muzak gave way to a series of great indie rock tunes, including three I’d never heard before. A song that I later determined to be Laura Veirs’ “Don’t Lose Yourself ” became my instant new favorite. By the time the billing consultant was ready for me, my mood was cheery. I predict a comparable sequence for you, Capricorn. An apparent trip to the suburbs of hell will have a happy ending that exposes you to fresh sources of inspiration.

6fjVg^jh( Jan. 20–Feb. 18): In response to the

recession, some companies have come up with an ingenious way to avoid raising prices: They reduce the amount of product they offer by shrinking the packaging. The makers of Skippy Peanut Butter, for instance, restructured the bottom of the jar so that only 16.3 ounces could fit inside instead of the previous 18. In the coming weeks, Aquarius, I suspect you will be having to deal with metaphorical versions of this strategy. Now that I’ve told you, maybe you won’t be fooled.

E^hXZh(Feb. 19–March 20): In the past few

weeks you have veered close to the edge of blissful triumph. From what I can tell, you averted total ecstatic breakthrough and fantastic raging success by only the narrowest of margins. If you don’t want to go all the way in the coming days—if you’d rather remain faithful to your fear of success and fall back into your humdrum comfort zone—you should slam on the brakes immediately. But I warn you: The cosmic pressure to push you over the top into loopy, grinning, shameless victory is almost irresistible.
