Changes Way back in 1989, I was hired to be Metro’s Arts Editor. I can still recall the first time we attempted to receive an article using the file-transfer program Kermit. The process took three of us a couple of hours and a dozen phone calls, but it was worth it: At last, we thought, freedom from floppy disks. After nearly 24 years as Arts Editor and Managing Editor at Metro (and a few years at Metro Santa Cruz, now Santa Cruz Weekly, as well), I am retiring from the steady drumbeat of deadlines. Heather Zimmerman, an 18-year veteran of the local newspaper scene, will be taking over as Managing Editor. As always, Metro remains committed to the ideals of independent alternative journalism. With the greatest of thanks to all the people I have worked with over the years: a fond farewell. Michael S. Gant, Managing Editor

have been euthanized without a second thought. Now we put them up for adoption.”

Local Approach Some Northern California communities pass out cat traps to community members, who can borrow them and use them either to surrender cats to the shelter, or to do TNR through Project Purr’s low-cost program, which offers $25 spays and neuters. Melanie Sobel, general manager of Santa Cruz County’s shelter, says she is against the shelter-facilitated TNR program in San Jose, saying the shelter has to serve its human constituents. “The majority of our traps are used for nuisance cats, cats on people’s property that they don’t want,” she says. “We have an obligation to deal with these cats. If that means euthanasia, unfortunately, that means euthanasia.” Daines says they’ve had the same complaints from San Joseans, but that hasn’t stopped her. The shelter offers counseling on how to make homes less hospitable for outdoor cats, but when all else fails, the neutered cat is going to be released to the property it came from, whether the owners like it or not. “We’re the animal welfare professionals and we are in charge of managing these welfare issues, and it’s our prerogative to put the cat back,” she says.

Claws Out Santa Cruz’s Sobel says the fragile coastal ecosystem is harmed by the abundance of feral cats. “Because cats are one of the main pets of American society I think there’s too narrow of a view with this. We have to look at the whole picture as far as all life that’s out there,” she says. For now, when a cat is surrendered to the Santa Cruz shelter that cannot be put up for adoption, the shelter is required to hold it for five days, giving rescue organizations like Project Purr

a chance to save it. Achterberg tries to rescue as many of these cats as she can, hopefully placing kittens in foster situations that may turn them social and available for in-home adoption, and funneling the older cats into the barn cat program. “They do organic, green, non-toxic rodent control. Mother Nature made them that way. It’s a win, win, win, all the way down the line,” she says. But Sobel believes there actually are some losers. “It’s so hypocritical. They constantly talk about, ‘oh the rat populations are getting killed,’ but just completely ignore all the other populations that are getting killed,” she says. Indeed, cat advocates tend to gloss over or dismiss the whole “bird issue.” But when pressed, Achterberg will admit, “Yes, cats get birds. But I think they probably get the old ones, the sick ones, the dumb ones, and so in a funny sort of way I think they’re actually strengthening the bird population. Do you know what I mean? The strong survive, the smart, strong ones survive,” she says. Inside one of Achterberg’s backyard hutches is a snow-white adult cat, crouched in the back of the hutch with her ears folded down, emitting a low, steady growl. Alongside her is her kitten, climbing up the walls, mewing sweetly at her, whom Achterberg has named Fluff, “as in marshmallow.” She holds the kitten in her arms and nuzzles him. “This little monster, I rescued him and his mom— it’s OK, honey—I’ve had him for going on seven weeks now. He was rescued as just an eye-opening white kitten with her, surrendered to the shelter. She’s quite feral—hi, sweetheart. See those ears going down and the unfriendliness? I almost didn’t rescue them both from the shelter—they were going to be euthanized, of course. But I’m so glad I did,” she says. “I get teary eyed—Hi, you’re gonna get a home.’ Yeah, it’s the best thing that happens to kitties. ‘Yeah, you’re gonna get a home.’”

My personal favorite, however, was the caramelized Tamarind, the only one not specifically associated with any country. It burst with tangy sweetness in the best way possible.

Psycho Kills It WHEN PSYCHO DONUTS head chef Ron Levi and his assistant Joe Cloutier were tapped to compete in TV show Donut Showdown, the bakery’s Bay Area following had no clue. The six episodes aired in April on Food Network Canada. “It was this huge accomplishment that our local fans and customers had no knowledge of,” says Psycho owner Jordan Zweigoron. “When the show was first created, there was a very good prospect for the show to get licensed to air in the U.S., but we never knew if this would happen, or when.” Psycho Donuts Now, it’s happening. At 7pm on July 3, chefs Levi and is featured Cloutier duke it out in front of a national audience on on 'Donut the Cooking Channel in an episode titled “Fire and Ice.” Showdown' “The experience for us was surreal,” Zweigoron says. July 3, 7pm on After watching Levi’s (deliberately) cheesy audition the Cooking video, producers Architect Films asked the quirky Silicon Channel. Valley donut chain, which has stores in San Jose and Campbell, if they could fly Levi and his culinary sidekick up to Toronto last October to compete in the series. “Ron was wildly excited, but it was a lot of work preparing for the unknown of such an intense experience,” Zweigoron says. “His job at Psycho Donuts is pretty demanding also, so there wasn’t much time for Ron and Joe to practice together.” A lot of time and sugar-fueled energy go into creating unconventional donuts like the Foie Bomb (which recently riled up local vegans and animal rights groups) or the bacon-cheddar-flavored cricket-topped Chirp Derp, so Levi and Cloutier didn’t get to brainstorm before their whirlwind trip for the television showdown, where they faced limited ingredients, time restrictions, cutthroat competition and the constant watch of TV cameras. In the first round, Levi cooked up a batch of vanilla cake donuts with chocolate hazelnut icing, candied walnuts and fruit-flavored popping candy. In round two, competitors were asked to make six dozen raised donuts in three improvised categories. Levi nailed it, whipping up a Mayan hot chocolate s’mores donut with a caramel halo, a salted caramel chipotle apple fritter with hot cinnamon crackle and a margarita bullseye donut with tequila-chantilly cream filling, margarita icing and a salted key lime drizzle. Spoiler alert: Psycho Donuts beat 42 contestants from around the world, leaving the battle with the $10,000 grand prize. —Jennifer Wadsworth

Badu, Beyoncé and Mayhem South Bay’s summer musical lineup heats up this week with the arrival of the interesting mix of one of pop music's biggest divas, tripped-out R&B and eardrum-blasting metal.

HEAVY METTLE Creative songstress Erykah Badu comes to Mountain Winery June 29.

JUNE 29: ERYKAH BADU AT MOUNTAIN WINERY Inspired by hip hop, R&B and jazz, iconoclast Erykah Badu championed the neo-soul movement with her debut in 1997. The eccentric balladeer, with her Billie Holiday-textured voice and self-chosen surname inspired by her favorite scatting sound, has been redefining modern soul and her image ever since. The four-time Grammy award-winner comes to the Mountain Winery in Saratoga this month just after a critically acclaimed collaboration with the Brooklyn Philharmonic and just before heading to SoCal to perform at BET Experience at L.A. Live. Judging by reviews from her shows earlier this spring, expect a lot of throwback Badu favorites, like “Tyrone,” and “On and On,” but also freestyling and psychedelic jams with her electro-funk band The Cannabinoids. June 29, 7:30pm; from $120; The Mountain Winery, Saratoga

JUNE 30: MAYHEM FESTIVAL AT SHORELINE AMPHITHEATRE A legion of metalheads will flock to the Shoreline for the second stop of the Mayhem Festival 2013, a hard-and-heavy rock event whose acts include Five Finger Death Punch, Mastadon and Amon Amarth. Rob Zombie is the biggest draw this year, riding the high from the April debut of his fifth solo studio album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, which landed at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 albums chart the first week of its release. The 18-band lineup also includes Children of Bodom, Shores of Acheron, Attika 7 and Thrown Into Exile. Sunday, June 30, 1:10pm; from $31.50; Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View

JULY 2: BEYONCÉ After a jaunt across Europe, where she stunned the world with sequin-splashed, golden-nippled costumes and explosive pyrotechnics, Queen Bey comes full circle back to Cali this summer to kick off the North American part of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Beyoncé et al touch down at San Jose’s HP Pavilion July 2—an already sold-out show—in her fourth global concert tour. Critics have praised the Carter Show for its mash-up of old-world grandiloquence, Broadway-style dance numbers, big-budget special effects and a whole lot of ass shaking. All the focus on areola-accentuating get-ups and elaborate fireworks displays has overshadowed any mention of the pop queen’s voice, a less-miasmic but no less commanding counterpart to a lot of leading R&B divas. A second Beyoncé show was just scheduled at HP Pavilion for December 2. Tickets go on sale July 1 at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 2; 8pm; sold out; HP Pavilion, San Jose —Jennifer Wadsworth

I’m a single dad of three children, who are my world, and it was a battle to get custody of them. For three years, I’ve dated a woman with grown children, and on our shared birthday (Valentine’s Day), I proposed, and she accepted. Two days later, she ended everything via text and hasn’t spoken to me since. She claimed she wants to come first in someone’s life, and my kids and dealings with my ex-wife took priority. Didn’t she figure this out earlier? Three weeks after she broke things off, I learned she was “in love” with an older rich guy with no children and that she’s spreading lies about me to mutual friends. We had a great relationship, and using her words, were “total soulmates.” Now she tells people how miserable she was. Even her friends are confused.—Baffled It seems she’s got a new take on a classic soulmate anthem: “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, except, hey, check out that old rich guy over there!” What a lucky lady. No sooner did she realize that her current soulmate was no longer working for her than another popped up. The truth is, even nice, wellmeaning people can go floating along thinking they’re in a relationship they want until their partner says, “Hey, wanna make it for realsies?” Chances are, your girlfriend long resented your prioritizing your kids but just sucked it up—until you got down on one knee and presented her with the fork in the road. With the prospect of permanence on the horizon, everything suddenly became clear: One road leads to a lifetime battling for your cash and attention, and the other has Snow White awakening from her coma and realizing she could get a better deal. A partner’s use of the term “total soulmates!” suggests that one is either dating a 14-year-old or somebody about as emotionally and romantically mature. The idea of soulmates actually traces back to Plato. He wrote about a “symposium” (ancient Greek for “kegger”) at which an apparently tanked Aristophanes claimed there were once three sexes—male, female and this weird he/she thing, round like a soccer ball, with four hands, four feet and two faces. According to Ari, humans got power-hungry and attacked the gods. The gods contemplated annihilating humanity with thunderbolts and then realized there’d be nobody left to leave them offerings. Zeus instead punished the humans by hacking the he/shes in two—male and female—and after Apollo reshaped them to look like we do now, the gods dispersed them, compelling them to forever be searching for their “other half.” Supposedly, those few who are lucky

enough to find theirs spend the rest of their lives making goo-goo eyes at each other on a picnic blanket while all the other couples are taking turns sobbing into a pillow in marriage counseling or sex therapy. Ironically, back here in the real world, a person who believes she’s your soulmate is actually a flight risk. Social psychologist Dr. C. Raymond Knee has explored the effect on relationships from “destiny belief”—the belief that have “soulmates,” that relationships are either fated to be or they’re not—vs. “growth belief,” the belief that successful relationships don’t just fall out of the sky; they take work. Partners with growth belief think that relationships are “cultivated and developed” over time, that problems are a natural part of them, and that working through them is a way to build a closer and stronger bond. A destiny believer, on the other hand, tends to see problems as a sign she’s in the wrong place and as reason to bail. As for why your self-proclaimed soulmate dumped you via text, well, some women are into shoes that match their handbag; yours turned out to have a cold heart to go with her cold feet. This strongly suggests that what she felt for you was not love but “love the one you’re with” (a.k.a. adventures in mercenary pragmatism). A romantic partner might need to end things with you, but if she ever loved you, she doesn’t turn on you the moment you’re no longer of use to her. In trashing you now, chances are she’s trying to punish you for her failure to figure out what she really wanted. The way for you to go forward is by looking backward. Explore whether you bought into the idea that she was loving and didn’t allow yourself to see the woman she appears to be—one who’s looking for that special someone to take her hand and walk off into the sunset with her toward his bank’s nearest ATM.

Š @BSDQH@KU@FHMNRHRÂŒRNLDQDRD@QBGDQR think, can readily be spread by oral sex. The most noticeable symptom is a rotten-ďŹ sh smell in the vagina of the recipient.

Š SGDQCHRD@RDRROQD@C@AKDAXNQ@KRDW include herpes, urethritis and varieties of hepatitis. Herpes often manifests as cold sores in and around the mouth, but not, so far as I know, sore throat. Š GDMSGDQD—RFNMNQQGD@� DQDVD must linger. Transmitted bacterially, gonorrhea is especially amenable to oral sex. Symptoms appear four to six days after contact and commonly include mouth infections. Fellatio is the most common route for these infections, which often afflict gay men. However, cunnilingus is also up there. One study found parties ministering orally to women were four times as likely to contract an oral gonorrhea infection. Now for the really bad part. Gonorrhea can infect your tonsils as a result of oral sex, and when it does can be tricky to cure: a study of Danish patients suffering from tonsillar gonorrhea found 11 of 13 had recently engaged in oral sex, and half the cases needed several courses of antibiotics. We’re not done yet.

Getting back to you, Justin, you probably don’t have any of the above, although if that sore throat or other symptoms linger, see a doctor. As for how you might persuade your partners to disinfect their genitals, I have no idea. But I’d love to hear you try.

JUNE 26-JULY 2, 2013 | | |

I have noticed a high positive correlation between muff diving and a sore throat. Within a few hours, I develop throat pain and sometimes, like now, a full-blown u. Am I correct in assuming this must be from ingesting streptococcus or staphylococcus bacteria in mass quantities? Is there any way to sanitize the organ in question—say, a bath in Lysol or hydrogen peroxide? And how would one go about asking one's partner to do it?—Justin Caise Uh, Justin. Lysol? Hydrogen peroxide? I assume these are attempts at humor. On to your question. Before we talk prevention, we need to ďŹ gure out what you’ve got. Do you have one oral-sex partner, or several? Has the alleged high positive correlation been statistically demonstrated, or did you have a sore throat the other day and the u now, and from this you conclude that cunnilingus = world of woe? If you have one partner, and she’s also monogamous, you may get what she’s got, but then you’ve got it—you’re not going to get it multiple times. If, alternatively, you’re into frequent oneoff sex with partners who are similarly disposed, thereby exposing yourself to every bug variant on earth, I suppose you could get repeated infections marked by sore throats, but probably you’d also exhibit numerous other symptoms you don’t mention. So what follows is, of necessity, speculation. First we need to distinguish infections transmitted while having sex from sexually transmitted infections. You can pick up all sort of germs from mere physical contact or proximity, including the rhinoviruses that might cause a sore throat. STIs, however, are transmitted primarily through sexual activity. We’ll discuss only the latter here:

ARIES (March 21–April 19): “To know when to stop is of the same importance as to know when to begin,” said the painter Paul Klee. Take that to heart, Aries! You are pretty adept at getting things launched, but you’ve got more to learn about the art of stopping. Sometimes you finish prematurely. Other times you sort of disappear without officially bringing things to a close. Now would be an excellent time to refine your skills. TAURUS (April 20–May 20): “The problem with

quotes on the Internet is that it’s hard to determine whether or not they are genuine.” So said Joan of Arc back in 1429, right before she helped lead French troops in the battle of Patay. JUST KIDDING! Joan of Arc never had the pleasure of surfing the Web, of course, since it didn’t exist until long after she died. But I was trying to make a point that will be useful for you to keep in mind, Taurus, which is: Be skeptical of both wild claims and mild claims. Stay alert for seemingly interesting leads that are really timewasting half-truths. Be wary for unreliable gossip that would cause an unnecessary ruckus.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20): French Impressionist

painter Claude Monet loved to paint water lilies, and he did so over and over again for many years. Eventually, he created about 250 canvases that portrayed these floating flowers. Should we conclude that he repeated himself too much? Should we declare that he was boringly repetitive? Or might we wonder if he kept finding new delights in his comfortable subject? Would we have enough patience to notice that each of the 250 paintings shows the water lilies in a different kind of light, depending on the weather and the season and the time of day? I vote for the latter view, and suggest that you adopt a similar approach to the familiar things in your life during the coming weeks.

CANCER (June 21–July 22): “In order to swim one takes off all one’s clothes,” said 19th-century Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. “In order to aspire to the truth one must undress in a far more inward sense, divest oneself of all one’s inward clothes, of thoughts, conceptions, selfishness, etc., before one is sufficiently naked.” Your assignment in the coming week, Cancerian, is to get au naturel like that. It’s time for you to make yourself available for as much of the raw, pure, wild truth as you can stand. LEO (July 23–Aug. 22): Gertrude Stein was an innovative writer. Many illustrious artists were her friends. But she had an overly elevated conception of her own worth. “Think of the Bible and Homer,” she said, “think of Shakespeare and think of me.” On another occasion, she proclaimed, “Einstein was the creative philosophic mind of the century, and I have been the creative literary mind of the century.” Do you know anyone like Stein, Leo? Here’s the truth, in my opinion: To some degree, we are all like Stein. Every one of us has at least one inflated idea about ourselves—a conceited self-conception that doesn’t match reality. It was my turn to confront my egotistical delusions a few weeks ago. Now would be an excellent time for you to deal with yours. Don’t be too hard on yourself, though. Just recognize the inflation, laugh about it, and move on. VIRGO (Aug. 23–Sept. 22): When I close my eyes, I

get a psychic vision of you as a kid playing outside on a warm summer day. You’re with friends, immersed in a game that commands your full attention. Suddenly, you hear a jingling tune wafting your way from a distance. It’s the ice cream truck. You stop what you’re doing and run inside your home to beg your mom for some money. A few minutes later, you’re in a state of bliss, communing with your Fudgsicle or ice cream cone or strawberry-lime fruit bar. I have a feeling that you will soon experience an adult version of this scene, Virgo. Metaphorically speaking, either the ice cream man or the ice cream woman will be coming to your neighborhood.

LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct. 22): During the past 10 months, you have been unusually adventurous. The last time you summoned so much courage and expansiveness may have been 2001. I’m impressed! Please accept my respect and appreciation. You’ve had a sixth sense about knowing when it’s wise to push beyond your limitations and boundaries. You have also had a seventh sense about intuiting when to be crafty and cautious as you wander through the frontiers. Now here’s one of your assignments for the next 12 months:

By ROB BREZSNY week of April 21

Distill all you’ve learned out there in the borderlands and decide how you will use your wisdom to build an unshakable power spot back here in the heart of the action.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23–Nov. 21): Michael Faraday (1791–1867) was one of the most influential scientists in history. He produced major breakthroughs in both chemistry and physics. Have you ever used devices that run on electricity? You can thank him for playing a major role in developing that wonderful convenience. And yet unlike most scientists, he had only the most elementary grasp of mathematics. In fact, his formal education was negligible. I propose that we name him your role model of the week. He’s a striking example of the fact that you can arrive at your chosen goal by many different paths. Keep that in mind if you’re ever tempted to believe that there’s just one right way to fulfill your dreams. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21): “The only thing that we learn from history,” said the German philosopher Georg Hegel, “is that we never learn anything from history.” I’m urging you to refute that statement in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. I’m pleading with you to search your memory for every possible clue that might help you be brilliant in dealing with your immediate future. What have you done in the past that you shouldn’t do now? What haven’t you done in the past that you should do now? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): According to my

analysis of the astrological omens, now would be a pretty good time to talk about things that are hard to talk about. I don’t necessarily mean that you’ll find it easy to do. But I suspect it would be relatively free of pain and karmic repercussions. There may even be a touch of pleasure once the catharsis kicks in. So try it if you dare, Capricorn. Summon the courage to express truths that have previously been hard to pin down. Articulate feelings that have been murky or hidden. For best results, encourage those you trust to do the same.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Are you familiar with Quidditch? It’s a rough sport played by wizards in the fictional world of Harry Potter. All seven books in the series mention it, so it’s an important element. Author J.K. Rowling says she dreamed up the sport after having a quarrel with her boyfriend. “In my deepest, darkest soul,” she reports, “I would quite like to see him hit by a bludger.” (In Quidditch, a bludger is a big black ball made of iron.) I bring this up, Aquarius, because I suspect that you, too, are in position to use anger in a creative and constructive way. Take advantage of your raw emotion to make a lasting improvement in your life. PISCES (Feb. 19–March 20): In his erotic poem “Your Sex,” Joe Bolton exults: “My heart simplified, I touch the bud of happiness—it’s in season. And whatever grief I might have felt before simply dies inside me.” You might want to write that down on a slip of paper and carry it around with you this week, Pisces. According to my understanding of the astrological omens, the bud of happiness is now in season for you. You have good reason to shed the undertones of sadness and fear you carry around with you. I’ll tell you the last lines of Bolton’s poem, because they also apply: “Sometimes I think it’s best just to take pleasure wherever we want and can. Look: the twilight is alive with wild honey.” (The full poem: Homework: Each of us has a secret ignorance. Can you guess what yours is? What will you do about it?
