The wings are baked in an oven at a high temperature for five minutes. This keeps the chicken from shrinking, so the wings are a little bigger than normal.

All Scream for Cream


THE SHAMIEH FAMILY has done it again, opening a new branch of their ice cream shop, Cream, on the University Avenue promenade in Palo Alto. Their very first location on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley has been a runaway success since it opened in 2010. The concept employs the Shamieh matriarch’s cookie recipe and relives a childhood experimenting with different dessert combinations. Cream (“Cookies Rule Everything Around Me”) is a summer crowd pleaser, with homemade ice cream sandwiches for about $2.50, ice cream by the cone and milkshakes. Long lines have been a steady sight at the new Palo Alto location, with some waiting almost an hour to try these cold confections. Not to worry though—lines go fast and often, and employees walk around with samples of the cookies to bide the time. Recently, social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram have been bombarded with photos of Cream’s nostalgic treats. With an assortment of cookies and toppings, it’s easy to take such a simple treat to creative heights. Our pairing: a turtle cookie and a white chocolate macadamia cookie sandwiching cinnamon caramel ice cream. The company is growing fast, already planning two more locations in Walnut Creek and Davis.

Poncho Required?

GOOD EATS, the Food Network show which Alton Brown wrote, produced and starred in, was the first of its kind. It was an entertaining blend of food science, pop culture and common cooking sense; a belching puppet made an appearance on some nights. Brown’s offbeat style and quirky humor commanded a massive following for 13 seasons. Expect the same kind of absorbing revelry at his new show, “Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour,” which hits the San Jose Center of Performing Arts on Oct. 24. Stand-up comedy and talk show antics will be in full swing, along with lots of opportunities for audience participation, multimedia lecture, music and experimentation with food. Ponchos may be involved. Tickets start at $25.50. VIP tickets are $101.50 and include a pre-show reception with Brown. Brown, who found his true passion in food in college when women would often say “no” to dates but sometimes “yes” if he offered to cook, was a commentator on Iron Chef America for 11 years and a host of Next Iron Chef for five. He has won two James Beard awards and has written seven books, three of which have made The New York Times’ bestseller list. For more information on the tour, visit Kristine Bautista

GOTTA SCOOT The film ‘Go Grandriders’ tells of the true story of elders who take a 13-day motorcycle tour of Taiwan.

Lights, CAAM, Action THE CENTER for AsianAmerican Media’s CAAMfest 2013 is a mini-fest of 11 feature and short films from overseas and elsewhere; the weekendlong event includes receptions and guest appearances. Go Grandriders is making its appearance in Downtown San Jose, as well as opening for a week’s run Aug. 16 at the BlueLight in Cupertino. It’s the true story of elders on scooters circumnavigating their home island on a 700-mile long, twoweek journey. Even in a Confucian culture where elders aren’t exiled to the Sunbelt to “dress like toddlers and implode with rage,” in Adam Gopnick’s phrase, it’s a hard slog for these old men and women. They fight blood pressure and vertigo, and the pangs of widowerhood; some of the tributes to dead spouses mist the eyes. And then there’s the matter of near-lethal pride among these motorcyclists. Among the riders is a frail, elderly military man who seems to be daring death to stop him from continuing. On hand for this film’s appearance at CAAM: 10 of the grandriders, who will be doing a San Francisco to Los Angeles run after their visit. Opening night is Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?, a Korean crowd-pleaser about the past of

Among the other offerings: Earth may be doomed, but Best Friends Forever is doomed to be lumped in as the gal-pal version of This Is the End—its two rising stars (Vera Miao and Brea Grant) stuck in the middle of nowhere after the apocalypse. Uke-mania is still at fevered pitch, so the time was right for a celebratory profile of the Yngwie Malmsteen of the uke: the documentary Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings at the Japanese American Museum in J-town.

RENAISSANCE MAN James Williamson took a three-decade break from music to work in software engineering.

Guitar Hero GUITARIST JAMES WILLIAMSON will deliver the keynote music address at the C2SV Technology Conference and Music Festival in Silicon Valley at noon on September 28 before he performs with Iggy and The Stooges at St. James Park later that evening. Williamson’s story is one of the more remarkable ones in the history of rock ’n’ roll. As member of Iggy and The Stooges in the 1970s, Williamson created punk rock’s signature guitar sound, then settled into a quiet career as a Silicon Valley engineering manager. After 30 years, he took an early retirement buyout offer as Sony’s Vice President of Technology Standards and rejoined the band. Completing a world tour that’s taken The Stooges from Australia to Europe, the legendary band will play the final show of its triumphant sweep on Williamson’s home turf in Silicon Valley. Williamson is an ideal icon for a conference and festival celebrating “Creative Convergence,” the fusion of information technology and the creative arts. At the keynote, Williamson will talk about his journey from juvenile delinquent and rock pioneer to mild mannered corporate executive, in which one of rock’s great guitarists was embedded, undetected, in a big consumer electronics company. Born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma and Detroit, Williamson first played music with Iggy Pop while in high school and joined The Stooges in 1970, but the band was a short-lived trainwreck of drug-fueled excess and commercial failure. Williamson’s jagged, loud, raunchy Detroit guitar sound inspired the punk rock movement that transformed rock music and continues to influence guitarists to this day. As the band disintegrated in the mid- and late-1970s, Williamson left the music world and earned an electrical engineering degree from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He worked for silicon chip maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) from 1982 to 1997, then spent more than a decade as Sony’s Vice President of Technical Standards. Williamson warmed up for his return to the stage with the Careless Hearts, a San Jose band, at the Blank Club in 2009. He’s been touring the world with Iggy and The Stooges for four years now. Williamson’s keynote will be open to badge holders of the C2SV Technology Conference and VIP ticket holders for the Iggy and The Stooges concert later that day in St. James Park. The concert ticket is sold in combination with a wristband that enables concertgoers to experience three days of music at more than 12 venues in Downtown San Jose.—Dan Pulcran0 Tickets available at Dan Pulcrano is the founder and organizer of the Creative Convergence Silicon Valley (C2SV) Technology Conference and Music Festival.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Normally, International

CAPS LOCK DAY happens only once a year, on June 28. But in alignment with your current astrological omens, you have been granted the right to observe the next seven days as your own personal International CAPS LOCK DAYS. That means you will probably be forgiven and tolerated if use OVERHEATED ORATORY and leap to THUNDEROUS CONCLUSIONS and engage in MELODRAMATIC GESTURES. You may even be thanked— although it’s important to note that the gratitude you receive may only come later, AFTER THE DUST HAS SETTLED.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): William Turner was a 19thcentury English landscape painter born under the sign of Taurus. His aim was not to capture scenes in realistic detail but rather to convey the emotional impact they made on him. He testified that on one occasion he had himself tied to the mast of a ship during a snowstorm so that he could experience its full effects firsthand. The result was “Snow Storm—Steam-Boat off a Harbor’s Mouth,” a painting composed mostly of tempestuous swirls. What would be the equivalent for you, Taurus? I’m trying to think of a way you could be perfectly safe as you treated yourself to an up-close encounter with elemental energies. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Some years back, the Greek

government launched a huge anti-smoking campaign. In response, cigarette sales spiked dramatically. When my daughter was 6 years old, I initiated a crusade to ban Barbie dolls from our home forever. Soon she was ripping out pictures of the accursed anti-feminist icon from toy catalogs and leaving them on my desk. With these events in mind, I’m feeling cautious about trying to talk you into formulating a five-year master plan. Maybe instead I should encourage you to think small and obsess on transitory wishes.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Wings are a constraint

that makes it possible to fly,” the Canadian poet Robert Bringhurst reminds us. That will be a good principle for you to keep in mind during your own adventures during the coming weeks. I suspect that any liberation you are able to achieve will come as the result of intense discipline. To the degree that you cultivate the very finest limitations, you will earn the right and the power to transcend inhibitions that have been holding you down.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” When I came across that quote while surfing the Web, I felt that it jibed perfectly with the astrological omens that are currently in play for you. Every website I consulted agreed that the speaker of this wisdom was Socrates, but I thought the language sounded too contemporary to have been uttered by a Greek philosopher who died 2,400 years ago. After a bit of research, I found the real source: a character named Socrates in Way of the Peaceful Warrior, a New Age self-help book by Dan Millman. I hope this doesn’t dilute the impact of the quote for you, Leo. For now, it is crucial that you not get bogged down in quarreling and brawling. You need to devote all your energy to creating the future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do you know that you are a host for more than 10,000 different species of microorganisms? Many of them are bacteria that perform functions essential to your health. So the stunning fact of the matter is that a large number of life forms share your body and constantly help you in ways about which you have no conscious awareness. Might there be other examples of you collecting benefits from unknown sources? Well, do you know who is responsible for providing you with the water and electricity you use? Who sewed your clothes and made your medicine? Who built the roads and buildings you use? This is an excellent time to take inventory of all the assistance, much of it anonymous, that you are so fortunate to receive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): More often than not, your

fine mind does a competent job of defining the problems that need solving. It comes up with concise questions that lead you in the right direction to find useful clues. It gathers evidence crisply and it makes smart adjustments as the situation evolves. But after studying the astrological factors currently at work, I’m a little

By ROB BREZSNY week of August 14

concerned that your usually fine mind might temporarily be prone to suffering from the dreaded malady known as paralysis through over-analysis. To steer yourself away from that possibility, keep checking in with your body and your feelings to see what alternate truths they may have to tell you

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): By the standards of

people who don’t know you well, the triumph you achieve in the coming days might seem modest. But I think it will actually be pretty dramatic. Here’s my only concern: There’s a slight danger you will get grandiose or even a bit arrogant in the aftermath of your victory. You could also get peeved at those who don’t see it for the major achievement it is. Now that I’ve given you this warning, though, I’m hoping you will avoid that fate. Instead you will celebrate your win with humble grace, feeling gratitude for all the help you got long the way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.” So said French writer André Breton. I suspect that many of us feel the same way, which is kind of depressing. But the good news for you, Sagittarius, is that there will be times in the coming months when you will get as close to naming that mysterious thing as you have ever gotten. On more than a few occasions, you may be able to get a clear glimpse of its true nature. Now and then you might even be fully united with it. One of those moments could come soon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The Paris Review did

a story on novelist William Gass. The interviewer asked him why he wrote his books. That was “a very dumb question,” he sneered. Nevertheless, he answered it, saying, “I write because I hate. A lot. Hard.” In other words, his primary motivations for expressing himself creatively were loathing, malice, and hostility. I beg you not to use him as your role model, Capricorn. Not now. Not ever. But especially now. It is essential to your longterm health and wealth that you not be driven by hate in the coming weeks. Just the opposite, in fact: The more you are driven by love and generosity, the better chance you will have of launching a lucky streak that will last quite a while.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are,” said author Marianne Williamson. “Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is.” Your assignment, Aquarius, is to seek out the deepest possible understanding of these truths. To do that, you will have to identify the unripe, shadowy qualities of the people who are most important to you. And then you will have to find it in your smart heart to love them for their unripe, shadowy qualities almost as much as you do for their shiny, beautiful qualities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Aldous Huxley was the renowned 20th-century intellectual who wrote the book Brave New World, a dystopian vision of the future. Later in his life he came to regret one thing: how “preposterously serious” he had been when he was younger. “There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet,” he ruminated, “trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling . . . Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.” I would love for you to put this counsel at the top of your priority list for the next ten months, darling Pisces. Maybe even write it out on a piece of paper and tape it to your bathroom mirror. Homework: Is there an area of your life where your effects are different from your intentions?
