Like other Thai dishes, the end result is a concoction of interesting and competing flavors. Traditionally, desserts in the U.S. are viewed as wholly sweet experiences. Even adding a little bit of salt to caramel is viewed almost as exotic. The taro ball bowls are sweet, savory and a little sour—plus each component in the bowl has a completely different texture. They are $4.50 per bowl. In addition to taro balls, PM2 currently sells both mung bean and taro cookies, which have similar flavors as the taro ball bowls, and come in pretty flower shapes. Yang would like to add lunch items to the menu in the coming months and is still deciding which items to include.

LIVING LEGEND In San Jose Rep’s ‘One Night With Janis Joplin,’ Kacee Clanton stars as Joplin.

A Piece of Her Heart WHEN KACEE CLANTON first emerges onstage wearing Janis Joplin's iconic hippie attire, I think, “Hey, she kind of looks like Janis Joplin.” When she begins to sing, I thought, “Damn, she really sounds like Janis Joplin.” That's about all a person needs to know: this musical promises “One Night With Janis Joplin” and, thanks to Clanton’s near-perfect impersonation, it delivers. The raspy voice, the earthy stage presence and the One Night passionate, bluesy wailing are gloriously impressed into With Janis Joplin songs like “Down on Me,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Me & Bobby McGee” and, best of all, a scorching rendition of “Ball and Chain.”

Runs through Oct. 6 at San Jose Rep,101 Paseo de San Antonio, San Jose. $28-$79

There isn't much of a plot to speak of. In between songs, in dialogue peppered generously with the words “like” and “man,” Janis reminisces on her childhood in 408.367.7255 Texas, her whirlwind career and, above all, her musical or influences. Biographical details are rather scant, with Joplin's drug addiction and eventual, fatal overdose only vaguely hinted at. This isn't entirely a bad thing: the show is intended more as a tribute to her music than as a detailed portrait of her life and, overall, it's much closer to an actual rock concert than it is to musicals like Jersey Boys or The Buddy Holly Story. The music is where this production really shines, not only in re-creations of Joplin's most notable songs, but also in the music that inspired them. Tiffany Mann appears as “The Blues Singer,” a figure representing Bessie Smith, Nina Simone and other great names of black music. With “Spirit in the Dark,” Mann and Clanton even give us a fantasy Aretha Franklin/Janis Joplin duet. Also present are backup singers Cari Hutson (who plays Janis in select performances), Shinnerrie Jackson and Tricky Jones, as well as a fine band that includes guitars, drums and a horn section. The ensemble switches effortlessly from blues to soul to psychedelia—for example, when it comes to Gershwin's “Summertime,” we get the jazzy Porgy and Bess version, followed by Big Brother & the Holding Company's version, punctuated by Hunter St. Marie's screaming electric guitar. While the play has some thematic shortcomings, pointing these out seems like nitpicking in the face of such powerful performances by Clanton and company. Imbued with the raw power of a live rock & roll show, One Night With Janis Joplin will give any canned jukebox musical a run for its money.—Sean Conwell

chalk art live music arts and crafts food trucks entertainment BEDTIME STORIES The ‘What’s Under the Bed’ show includes Donny Foley’s whimsical monsters. Proceeds from this event support local artists and youth arts programs Supported, in part, by a Cultural Affairs grant from the City of San Jose

Monster Mashup MONSTERS UNDER THE BED are a common occurrence in many households. It’s a familiar phenomenon that Donny Foley and Mark Damrel showcase in “What's Under the Bed,” their new show at the KALEID Gallery.

“What's Under the Bed”

In the dual show, Foley's cartoon-like paintings of monsters are side-by-side with Damrel's darker versions of what he thinks is under the bed.

Thru Sep 27 KALEID Gallery, San Jose. Tue-Sat, noon to 7pm

Foley, who works at Kaleid, says he met Damrel for the first time at a show last year. They hit it off and came up with an idea to do a joint show with a monster theme.

“We were throwing around themes, and we decided it's got to be monsters because there's just so much you can do,” says Foley. “It's literally endless. You can pull whatever you want out of your imagination.” Foley uses acrylic paints to create colorful versions of what would normally be a frightening subject for people. “I like my characters to be a little short and fat,” Foley says. Damrel's paintings, however, are the darker version of what someone could see when running through a nightmare. “I like the contrast between the two,” Damrel says, who works as an architect full-time. “Mine tend to be darker for some reason. I thought it would be a good counterpoint against each other.” Damrel has been showing art since 2007, and he says this event has the most pieces he's exhibited in a while. “I was trying to think of ideas that weren't just monsters but could be a scary situation. It was really fun, but it was difficult,” he says. “It's a fun and humorous look at the darker side of life.”—Nick Rivelli

GUARDED FRIENDSHIP Bobby Sommer is a Vienna museum guard who befriends one of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frequent visitors.

Kismet I OWE Nicholas Roeg, in his The Man Who Fell to Earth, for citing the Brueghel painting â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fall of Icarusâ&#x20AC;? at the big museum in Brussels, as well his quoting of W. H. Audenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem about it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;MusĂŠe des Beaux-Arts.â&#x20AC;? Very enlightening to a dumb kid who had just come to see David Bowie. Writing about ďŹ lm, I try to avoid the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a soppy, indistinct term. Seeing Jem Cohenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Museum Hours, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sorely tempting to use it. Maybe Museum Hours just needs to be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;special.â&#x20AC;? Like Russian Ark, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the rare, intriguing subset of ďŹ lms about the interior of a museum. The narrator is a nigh-elderly guard Johann (Bobby Sommer) a former rock roadie. For several years he has worked in Viennaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kunsthistorisches Museum, and the museum has apparently rendered him bemused. In what is more like a premise than a plot, Anne, a MontrĂŠalaise, has come to Vienna to tend her comatose cousin. She knows no one in the city, and she is at loose ends. This visitor is played by Mary Margaret Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Haraâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a cult singer/ songwriter, easily recognizable from voice alone as Catherine Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Haraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister

Johann tells us how he befriended Mary, getting her a walk-in pass to the museum, and eventually volunteering to guide her around the city. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different Vienna than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen in moviesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; more grit, leaden skies, pigeons, slushy streets, a fast food stand called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kismetkebab,â&#x20AC;? a Museum Hours Wienerwald of frozen grass, a bust of Salus that Unrated; some passing jackass has 107 min. Opens Fri given a cigarette butt to smoke. The museum, where we spend most of the ďŹ lm, has a famous collection of Pieter Brueghel the Elder, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tower of Babelâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Peasant Wedding.â&#x20AC;? A female guide leads us through, suggesting (to a restless tour groupâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one is checking his cell phone) that this matchlessly democratic painter was the ďŹ rst documentary maker. Unlike the ship Auden wrote about, Museum Hours doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have somewhere to go. Yet I grew to love this sensitive and conversational ďŹ lm, because ofâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;instead of despiteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;its seemingly anti-cinematic elements, its blackouts, its heavy narration, its focus on the stillness of art and its insistence on the beauty of loneliness.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Richard von Busack

I read recently that 150,000 condoms were distributed to the Olympic athletes in London's 2012 games, which seems excessive by any standard. Is the Olympic Village really the raunchy sex den its condom consumption suggests? —Derek Blank, Nashville You find this surprising? Here you’ve got a bunch of mostly single, insanely buff young men and women. (OK, maybe not the weightlifters.) You take them away from their accustomed surroundings in every corner of the globe and lodge them in the private enclave known as the Olympic Village, surrounded by yet sequestered from adoring fans and inquisitive reporters. Then let them get pumped up with nervous excitement and competitive spirit over several days, throw them a few parties and mixers, and supply alcohol. If I’m the manager in charge of Village party favors, my question is: will 150,000 be enough? Granted, we don’t have detailed knowledge of what goes on. Olympic swimmer Summer Sanders summed it up thus: “What happens in the Village stays in the Village.” Nonetheless, the accounts we do have give a pretty clear idea. A 2012 ESPN magazine report based on interviews with numerous athletes uncovered many spicy tales, ranging from same-sex hookups, toys, infidelity, and a group-sex orgy in a whirlpool tub. Women’s soccer goalie Hope Solo, swimmer Ryan Lochte, and others have gone on record as reporting high levels of sexual activity at the Olympics. “Athletes are extremists,” Solo theorized. “When they’re training, it’s laser focus. When they drink, it’s 20 drinks.” Solo herself gained some notoriety for hinting that she’d sneaked an unnamed celebrity back to her Beijing room for a one-night stand. Temptation abounds in the Village. During the summer games at least, athletes of both sexes go about their business minimally dressed—recalling Barcelona 1992 in the London Times, British table tennis player Matthew Syed looked back fondly on the "literally thousands" of female athletes "exposing yard upon yard of shiny, toned, rippling and unimaginably exotic flesh." Javelin thrower Breaux Greer put it this way: “Even if their face is a 7, their body is a 20.” And the dining hall is a full-tilt meat market, with everyone checking out what the others have brought to the table Carrie Sheinberg, an Alpine skier at the 1994 Lillehammer games, described the Olympic Village as a sexual “fairy-tale place . . . where everything is possible.” Greg Louganis reminisced about some same-sex snuggling at the 1976 Montreal

11 63

games with a Soviet diver. Even the return trip can be raucous, with one United Airlines flight back from Sydney essentially turning into a drunken flying orgy. Given the evident reality, precautionary measures are only prudent. Hundreds of thousands of condoms have been freely distributed since the Barcelona games for HIV prevention. Overkill? Doesn’t sound like it. Reflecting on the Sydney games in the ESPN piece, U.S. target shooter Josh Lakatos claimed “I’ve never witnessed so much debauchery in my entire life.” He was so reluctant to see the party end that he snuck back into his Olympic dwelling after being asked to vacate it and threw it open to an endless stream of athletes looking to hook up, including at one point an entire women’s 4x100 relay team. Officials of the 2008 Beijing games went further: they distributed 400,000 condoms in 400 hotels with rooms rated three stars or above. (To be fair, Chinese officials did muster hundreds of volunteers to help raise AIDS awareness for the event, and opened 40 clinics to offer free HIV tests.) The 100,000 condoms made available in the Olympic Village, meanwhile, featured on their wrappers the motto “Faster, Higher, Stronger.” During the 2010 Vancouver games officials distributed 100,000 condoms, which would work out to 15 per athlete. Lest anyone get the wrong idea, a spokesperson clarified that this total included condoms given out to security staff and volunteers, and in public bathrooms. The athletes got just 40,000, or a mere 6.2 apiece—but hey, it was cold out. As the legend of the Olympic Village has grown ever more colorful, condom companies now vie to become the official sponsor. For the 2012 London games the official provider was Durex, which shipped in 150,000 of its finest for athletic use. Controversy erupted when a female Australian BMX rider tweeted a photo of a bucketful of rival Australian-made condoms, labeled “Kangaroo condoms— for the gland down under.” The photo was a prank but nonetheless provoked a formal investigation by Olympic brand police, underlining the core message of the modern games: this may be amateur athletics, but nobody plays for free.

By ROB BREZSNY week of September 18

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “If Taylor Swift is going to have six breakups a year,” observed comedian Bill Maher, “she needs to write a new song entitled ’Maybe It’s Me.’” He was referring to Swift’s habit of using her romantic misadventures to stimulate her lyric-writing creativity. With that as your prompt, Aries, I’ll ask you to do some soul-searching about your own intimacy issues. How have you contributed to the problems you’ve had in getting the love and care you want? What unconscious behavior or conditioned responses have undermined your romantic satisfaction, and what could you do to transform them? The next eight weeks will be prime time to revolutionize your approach to relationships.

contract with yourself in which you vow to identify the experience you want more than any other experience on earth. No waffling allowed, Libra. What is the single most important thing?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Philosopher Alan Watts

used to talk about how the whole world is wiggling all the time. Clouds, trees, sky, water, human beings: Everything’s constantly shimmying and jiggling and waggling. One of our problems, Watts said, is that we’re “always trying to straighten things out.” We feel nagging urges to deny or cover up or eliminate the wiggling. “Be orderly,” we command reality. “Be neat and composed and predictable.” But reality never obeys. It’s forever doing what it does best: flickering and fluctuating and flowing. In accordance with astrological omens, Taurus, I encourage you to rebel against any natural tendencies you might have to fight the eternal wiggle. Instead, celebrate it. Rejoice in it. Align yourself with it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In the indigenous culture of Hawaii, ’mana’ refers to a spiritual power that may abide in people, objects, and natural locations. You can acquire more of it by acting with integrity and excellence, but you might lose some of it if your actions are careless or unfocused. For instance, a healer who does a mediocre job of curing her patients could lose the mana that made her a healer in the first place. I believe that similar principles hold true for non-Hawaiians. All of us have an ever-shifting relationship with the primal life force. What’s the current state of your own personal supply, Sagittarius? It’s time to make sure you’re taking full advantage of the mana you have been blessed with. Your motto: ’Use it or lose it. ’

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Author Elaine Scarry

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Have you been

defines “the basic impulse underlying education” as follows: the “willingness to continually revise one’s own location in order to place oneself in the path of beauty.” Consider making this your modus operandi in the coming weeks, Gemini. Always be on the lookout for signs that beauty is near. Do research to find out where beauty might be hiding and where beauty is ripening. Learn all you can about what kinds of conditions attract beauty, and then create those conditions. Finally, hang around people who are often surrounded by beauty. This approach will be an excellent way to further your education.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometime in the next

nine months you may feel moved to embark on an adventure that will transform the way you understand reality. Maybe you will choose to make a pilgrimage to a sacred sanctuary or wander further away from your familiar comforts than you ever have before. Right now is an excellent time to brainstorm about the possibilities. If you don’t feel ready to actually begin your quest, at least formulate a master plan for the magic moment when you will be ripe.

getting enough? I doubt it. I think you should sneak a peek into the hiding place where your insatiable cravings are stored. If you’re brave enough, also take a look at your impossible demands and your unruly obsessions and your suppressed miracles. Please note: I’m not suggesting that you immediately unleash them all; I don’t mean you should impulsively instigate an adventure that could possibly quench your ravenous yearnings. But I do believe you will benefit from becoming better acquainted with them. You could develop a more honest relationship, which would ultimately make them more trustworthy.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Life is either always a tight-rope or a feather bed. Give me the tight-rope.” So declared writer Edith Wharton. But she was an Aquarius, and more temperamentally suited to the tight-rope. Many of you Cancerians, on the other hand, prefer to emphasize the feather-bed mode. I suspect that in the next nine months, however, you will be willing and even eager to spend more time on the tight-rope than is customary for you. To get primed for the excitement, I suggest you revel in some intense feather-bed action in the coming weeks. Charge up your internal batteries with an extra-special deluxe regimen of sweet self-care.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t tape your thumbs to your hands and stalk around pretending to be a dinosaur. Don’t poke three holes in a large plastic garbage bag and wear it as a tunic while imagining that you are a feudal serf in a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi dystopia. Don’t use a felt-tip marker to draw corporate logos on your face to show everyone what brands of consumer goods you love. To be clear: I would love you to be extravagantly creative. I hope you will use your imagination in novel ways as you have fun playing with experimental scenarios. But please exercise a modicum of discernment as you wander way outside the box. Be at least 20 percent practical.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Half of a truth is better than no truth at all, right? Wrong! If you latch on to the partially accurate story, you may stop looking for the rest of the story. And then you’re liable to make a premature decision based on insufficient data. The better alternative is to reject the partially accurate story and be willing to wait around in the dark until the complete revelation comes. That may be uncomfortable for a while. But when the full truth finally straggles in, you will be very glad you didn’t jump to unripe conclusions.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic,” says the poet Marty McConnell. That’s good advice, Pisces—not just in regards to your intimate relationships, but about all your other alliances, too. If you’re seeking a friend or consultant or business partner or jogging companion or new pet, show a preference for those creatures who look at you like maybe you are magic.
