Waiting with my young daughter in the lobby of a dingy Chinese takeaway joint, you were decked head to toe in gang colors and tattoos. As the product of an inner-city, I recognized the signs and pulled my daughter a little closer. As if reading my thoughts, you looked up and said, “Nice shoes,” jerking your head in the direction of my feet. “We got the same ones.” We both were wearing black suede Vans, only mine were more scuffed-up than yours. “Thanks, bro,” I said and apologized for my family-size order holding up the line. “No problem,” you said, “family first.” I agreed and left reflecting on how a person I eyed with suspicion brought up two things we have in common. I’ll withhold judgment next time.

THE FLY

SVNEWS

The Off Season The 49ers are having quite a new year. On the first day of 2017, the club said adios to coach CHIP KELLY and general manager TRENT BAALKE. A day later, team CEO JED YORK practically roasted himself at a news conference by declaring that owners don’t get fired. On Tuesday, the 49ers sued the city of Santa Clara and its mayor, LISA GILLMOR, for breach of contract over Levi’s Stadium. Gillmor has accused the team’s management companies of hiding financial information from the Stadium Authority board, which she chairs. Back in early December, the city had its interim city manager, RAJEEV BATRA, send the club a notice that it could find itself in default of the stadium management agreement unless it turned over all documents. 49ers General Counsel HANNAH GORDON fired back a day later, noting that everything had already been provided in a Nov. 18 meeting at the stadium and also included a 15-day They estoppel certificate that Did demanded the city verify What? the club was playing by SEND TIPS TO the rules on stadium FLY@ management or present METRONEWS. evidence to the contrary. COM Batra punted in a Dec. 20 letter, saying he couldn’t sign anything until all docs were presented but would be happy to meet. When Gordon responded in an email with available dates, city officials clammed up and took off for the holidays. Santa Clara appears to be in a tough legal spot, which will only get more difficult considering longtime City Attorney REN NOSKY put in his letter of resignation Dec. 30. He’s often the only person who takes notes in meetings with the 49ers, meaning all record of city-team interactions could soon be lost. Word is Nosky’s moving on to the law firm Berliner Cohen LLP, which specializes in land use and municipal law. The 49ers had no official comment on the lawsuit but it appears the decision to sue was made not by York but 49ers team president AL GUIDO, who oversees all business decisions. Perhaps that’s why the club’s chances of winning look decidedly better.

Saving the Seeds SEEDS OF CHANGE Zia MacWilliams has volunteered her own time to help incarcerated youth breathe new life into a small, fenced-in garden at Santa Clara County’s Juvenile Hall.

Volunteers turn county Juvenile Hall garden into a place of hope BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH

I

N THE CORNER of a fenced-off garden surrounded by surveillance cameras, Jake writes the first New Year’s resolution of his young life. “Attend college,” he scrawls in black Sharpie on a Post-It note. Jake, whose full name is being withheld because he’s a juvenile detainee, says a satellite course he completed through Evergreen Valley College at Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall piqued his

fascination with history, writing and understanding how the world works. After rolling his note into a tiny cylinder, he selects a clay pot, buries his goal into the soil and tops it off with a red-tinted succulent. “That’s a good one,” says Zia MacWilliams, his group volunteer mentor. “Who’s next? Think about something that you want to accomplish—anything meaningful, doesn’t have to be big.” Jake’s peers, four other boys in yellowed-white T-shirts, khaki pants and chunky Velcro shoes, crouch down to follow suit. “Make this garden thrive,” one writes. “Get a job,” another note reads. The rest pick

variations on a theme: “Stay out of trouble.” Then, one by one, they leave their resolutions burrowed inside a row of brightly colored terra cotta pots in a sunlit patch of garden. For wards of the court accused of serious crimes and facing an uncertain future, these goals take on profound significance. As does their afternoon in the open air, a rare chance to interact with visitors and spend time in nature—even if it is a small, enclosed patch of it. “They spend most of their time inside,” MacWilliams says, motioning toward the detention facility, a fortress-like block of concrete and slit windows off of Hedding Street in San Jose. “So being able to be out here is a privilege. They have to earn it with good behavior.” Since spring of 2016, MacWilliams has taught teens locked up in


says. “So when people eat it, they can think about where it came from and the kids who grew it.” As the garden fosters connections to the outside, it has increasingly become a source of solace for teens locked into an extremely regimented existence. “When my family comes, I tell them about what I planted,” says Isaac, 15, whose full name is also withheld. “I think it surprised them at first.” Gina Lee, a Veggielution volunteer who lent her expertise to the youth on a recent afternoon, says she loves seeing the young people so receptive to her guidance. “They’re really curious,” she says. Initially, Lee admits, she had her reservations about interacting oneon-one with detainees, some of whom have been accused of capital crimes. MacWilliams says she felt the same way at first. “I was afraid when I started this,” she says. “I wasn’t sure I would be safe or what kind of a difference I could possibly yield. After my first visit, I realized that these are people, too. People who love to learn and work with the earth.” Some of the youth will get to ply their new skills outside in the near future and show their families what they’ve learned. Others, Jake included, will have to wait many more years for the chance. Still, he says, learning how to grow and prepare food is one of many skills he’s worked on acquiring this past year as his case wends its way through court. Two weeks before planting his resolution in that terra cotta pot, he earned his high school diploma. “The ceremony was crazy,” he says. “It was like getting married. I had a gown on and everything.” “Did you throw your cap up in the air?” MacWilliams asks. “No, but I gave a speech,” Jake replies. “I put a poem in there, too. My message was to try to get everyone else in my unit to graduate and get their diploma. I know they say this is a bad place, but we have to take advantage of our time here. I don’t want to sit here and do nothing.” In prison, he says, he would have far fewer chances to educate himself. “Hopefully I don’t go there,” Jake says, wiping sweat off his neck with his T-shirt. “Even though I have a record and stuff, I want to at least have something good to work on.”

Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration

Upper Guadalupe River Reach 6 Aquatic Habitat Improvement Project In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (California Public Resources Code Sections 21000 et seq.) and CEQA Guidelines (Title 14, California Code of Regulations, Sections 15000 et seq.), an Initial Study of the Upper Guadalupe River Reach 6 Aquatic Habitat Improvement Project was prepared to evaluate environmental impacts. Based on the Initial Study, it has been determined that a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) is the appropriate level of review. This is a Notice of Intent to adopt an MND for this project in accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15072. Project Title: Upper Guadalupe River Reach 6 Aquatic Habitat Improvement Project Project Description: The proposed project would be implemented in two phases, separated by about three years. During Phase 1, the Santa Clara Valley Water District would dewater portions of the Reach 6 channel during the dry season and place 1,160 cubic yards (CY) of gravel at two river pools located between the West Virginia Street Bridge and the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge. After placement of the gravel during Phase 1, the District would monitor and analyze geomorphic and biological conditions at the project area for about three years or until a bankfull flow event occurs (recurrence interval = 1.5 years or greater). If the results of the monitoring demonstrate that gravel placement in Reach 6 is sustainable and beneficial to the aquatic habitat, the District would implement Phase 2 of the project, which would entail dewatering the river between the Virginia Street Bridge and the Interstate-280 crossing, placing an additional 3,000 CYs of gravel in five deep pools, and placing 200 CYs of gravel to fill voids among existing boulders located in the Reach 6/3C transition area. Project Location: Upper Guadalupe River Reach 6 in San Jose, CA. Reach 6 is located between the Union Pacific Railroad crossing and the Interstate-280 crossing of the river. Public Review: The Draft MND will be available for public review from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the District Headquarters Building (5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118) starting January 15, 2017. A copy of the Draft MND will also be available at the Biblioteca Latinoamerica Branch Library reference desk, 921 South First Street, San Jose, CA 95110. The Draft MND can also be accessed online at: http://www.valleywater.org/PublicReviewDocuments.aspx. The public comment period on the Draft MND closes at 5 p.m. on February 14, 2017. Contact: Comments on the Draft MND should be submitted via mail or electronically, by 5 p.m. on February 14, 2017, to: Santa Clara Valley Water District Attention: James Manitakos 5750 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118 For further information please contact James Manitakos at (408) 630-2833, or by email at jmanitakos@valleywater.org.

maximum-security units how to tend the once-neglected swath of herbs, vegetables and citrus saplings. Armed with a $5,000 Knight Foundation grant and a rotating cast of volunteers, she spends several hours just about every other weekend at the garden with youthful offenders. By doing the work themselves, the detainees learn how to plant and cover crops, how to cook with fresh produce, how to fertilize and prune, how to keep the soil alive with plant-feeding nutrients. Veggielution, which runs a nonprofit urban farm in San Jose’s East Side, and Bay Maples, a business that specializes in droughttolerant landscaping, have donated time and materials for the effort. “These are life skills they can actually use,” MacWilliams says. “There’s also a therapeutic element, being responsible for taking care of something that’s alive and needs constant attention.” For a county that has spent the past several years trying to reduce recidivism in the juvenile justice system, the gardening sessions are a welcome addition to the agency’s curriculum. It also ties into an approach adopted by the county more than a decade ago to build prosocial interaction between staff and juveniles in their care. Called positive youth development, the strategy favors rehabilitation over retribution and has resulted in dramatically lower rates of recidivism. Any activity that translates into even slight improvement can have profound implications, helping advocates make a stronger case for juvenile detainees who get involved in the program. “We can write them letters that could help the outcome of their case,” MacWilliams says. “Because we spend all this time here, we actually get to know them.” County officials have discussed folding the gardening into existing vocational training, which includes food prep and safety certification. Already, the kids who volunteer in the garden have used their crops to prepare meals, including salsa and veggie wraps. This year, MacWilliams hopes to renew her grant funding and strike up a partnership with local university campuses to serve fresh food at their cafeterias or donate some to Second Harvest Food Bank. “The way I envision it is having a sign or something that says how this food came from Juvenile Hall,” she

An inside look at San Jose politics

IF YOU’RE SCARED GO TO CHURCH San Jose might change ordinances for faith-based organizations

to allow churches to provide sanctuary to undocumented immigrants.

San Jose Talks Safe Houses to Combat Deportations BY JOSH KOEHN The threat of a Trump-branded deportation force sweeping up undocumented immigrants across the South Bay has one city considering an unprecedented step. This week, San Jose’s City Council discussed code changes that would allow churches to create safe houses for people who fear they’ll be deported. In a memo authored last week by Mayor Sam Liccardo and co-signed by council members Raul Peralez, Sergio Jimenez, Magdalena Carrasco and Sylvia Arenas, the missive lays out discussion points to provide legal assistance to immigrant communities, broaden emergency communication networks and create partnerships with faith-based organizations. A rubric attached to the memo mentions the need to identify sanctuaries to “shelter undocumented from deportation at local institutions,” which would most likely require

revisions to city building codes and permits due to capacity restrictions. Such actions are usually taken due to inclement weather—not an incoming commander in chief. But a little more than a week before Donald Trump is sworn in as the next president of the United States, anxiety in immigrant communities is higher than it’s been in decades, and the council decided to confront these issues with its first meeting of the calendar year. “Thousands of San Jose residents face the threat of family separation as a result of potential changes in immigration enforcement by the new administration,” Liccardo’s memo states. “Law-abiding immigrants who play a crucial role in our workforce and community, thus, may arbitrarily be subject to deportation. We appreciate the thoughtful work of many local community leaders and stakeholders who have begun

to outline critical responses to that threat … and can provide a starting point for strategic planning.” Last month, Liccardo and San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia held a press conference reiterating the city’s position that it will not use any resources to assist federal immigration enforcement. Rather, the city intends to expand services provided by the Office of Immigrant Affairs. Trump has repeatedly called for the deportation of all undocumented immigrants, including the removal of all undocumented children from the country. He also has endorsed deportation forces that go door to door to take people into custody, stoking fears of a fascist-like police squad. In their memo, city officials suggested that a coordinated response could be created through one-time funding via the mid-year budget process, which occurs in February.

County Democrats Elect New Chair Santa Clara County Democrats elected a new chair last week, ending a 26-year run for Steve Preminger and launching a two-year term for his successor, Bill James. At a packed Democratic Central Committee meeting Thursday, the party also elected John Comiskey as vice chair, Helen Chapman as secretary and Angelica Ramos as treasurer. “With every leadership change, you risk losing something or your culture and your core,” said James, a 16-year member. “But it’s also a chance to revitalize the party.” The internal party pick was followed this past weekend by the election of party delegates to help shape the Democratic platform. These lowprofile elections typically don’t garner much interest, but this year was a gamechanger. The turnout in local state Assembly districts, where Bill James Democrats elected seven men and seven women to represent each one, was unprecedented. The local changing of the guard comes as Democrats throughout the nation grapple with how to move on from an election in which they lost the White House and failed to win back Congress. Aimée Escobar said the election inspired her to run against James for the county chairmanship. “The world has changed,” said Escobar, an elected member of the county’s Democratic Central Committee. “We blinked and entered this new reality. We have to decide: do we evolve with it or not?” To some, the election of James was seen as a vote against that kind of transformation. “People like the status quo,” Escobar said after the meeting. “They know what to expect. If it’s not me, that’s OK. I understand the dynamics and change is hard.” —Jennifer Wadsworth

NASTY WOMEN UNITE! M

ARILYN CARTWRIGHT SHOWS me her phone case, which isn’t glitzy or cute—instead, it’s decorated with a tank she helped design. The “armored multi-purpose vehicle” is deserttan and hulking, with giant chains on the wheels and the red symbol for medical aid painted on the side. The 61-year-old has worked in the defense industry for 35 years, ever since moving to San Jose with an engineering degree. “If a plane crashes,” she says, “I could probably tell you why.”

The only protest she’s ever been to was at the previous Mercury News headquarters in the mid-’80s, when she and her co-workers picketed over the paper’s coverage of a military vehicle they’d built. That’s about to change. On Jan. 21, the day after Donald Trump is sworn in as president of the United States, Cartwright will join an expected 200,000 protesters at the Women’s March on Washington D.C. San Jose will host its own satellite march that day, from City Hall to the

Plaza de César Chávez, and similar marches are planned for Santa Cruz, Oakland and San Francisco. A cohort of South Bay women, terrified that Trump will reverse decades of progress on women’s rights, will fly more than 2,800 miles across the country to express their dissent in person at the Capitol. Besides repealing Obamacare, which provides 47 million women with access to health insurance, Trump has promised to defund

Planned Parenthood and said he’d fill Supreme Court seats with justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1974 case that established abortion rights. As Indiana governor, Vice President-elect Mike Pence led a crusade against abortion rights. In 2015, he signed a law forcing women to have “fetus funerals.” That same year in Pence’s Indiana, Purvi Patel became the first woman in the state to be convicted of feticide. Patel’s conviction has since been overturned, but her case

remains a flashpoint in the national conversation about reproductive rights. Cartwright’s 85-year-old mother, a former schoolteacher in Arlington, Virginia, is too frail to join her daughter at the march, so she’ll contribute in another way. “I told my mom about the Pussy Hat project,” Cartwright says. “Excuse me?” I’d heard of the concept—women are knitting hats in the shape of vulvas for marchers to wear—but I hadn’t expected to hear the word from Cartwright’s mouth.

“She has arthritis,” Cartwright says, “and she said she’ll knit them as long as her hands can stand it.” Cartwright is no hippie. In an Eeyore sweatshirt near her old office building in north San Jose, she sits stone-faced when talking about her experiences as a woman in an almost entirely male field. One former boss asked her to file papers instead of analyze design failures, as she’d been hired to do. Another assigned her, the only female staffer, to clean the office. And then

another tried to fire her when she brought her breastfeeding baby on a business trip, despite her arrangements for childcare. “We have come so far, and I will not go backwards,” Cartwright says. “I’ve fought so hard, not to make it better for myself, but for all the women afterwards.” Other South Bay women flying to the march share her resolve, especially those in the male-dominated tech industry who have struggled with

sexism in the workplace. They had hoped Hillary Clinton's decades of experience would break the country's highest glass ceiling and were devastated when an ignorant Twitter troll bullied his way past her. Margot Nack, 44, felt “physically ill” on election night. “You live in a bubble, and the bubble popped,” she says. The lavender-haired manager at Adobe and mentor for Girls Who Code booked her plane ticket two days later, then formed a Slack channel to coordinate with 12 local friends who also plan to fly to D.C. “It’s pretty lonely in product development. There’s a lot of unconscious bias,” she says. “Male engineers don’t mean to be exclusionary, but women drop out of those fields.” For Nack, the march is an opportunity to have her voice heard. “I’ve always had a big mouth,” she says. “On every elementary school report card, it said, ‘Margot talks too much.’

Maybe now that’s not a bad thing.” Before Amy Bayersdorfer, 50, left her job as a tech consultant to work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign in Michigan, she’d had only one female boss in 30 years in Silicon Valley. “I have friends founding startups who were told, ‘Oh, sweetheart, why don’t you go start a lifestyle business?’” Bayersdorfer made her plane reservations for the march right away. “We can’t be quiet on this one,” she says. As a field organizer in a blue-collar county outside of Detroit, she spent months talking to former autoworkers who eventually voted for Trump. “What people want is safety, economic opportunity, and for people to care about their community,” Bayersdorfer says, “but that can mean different things to different people.” Trump supporters aren’t just “different people,” though. In many case, they’re our people. Jane Burgunder, 50, knows one Trump


15 Her mother, Jennifer, 56, the coowner of PIP Marketing in Palo Alto, distributed 47 of the hats to friends and family. Jennifer says she felt “sucker punched” after the election. “I heard this voice in my head of my mom, who was quite a feisty feminist, saying, ‘You have to make this OK for Laura.’” Before she had children, Jennifer was a member of the National Organization for Women and accompanied her mother, who almost died from an illegal abortion, to actions at family planning clinics. The election “pulled on something from the past,” Jennifer says. “I could hear my mom saying, ‘No one’s going to tell me what to do with my body.’” If the Trump administration and Republican-controlled Congress follows through on promises to defund Planned Parenthood, family planning services in Santa Clara County would be directly affected. “What that means, practically, is that Planned Parenthood would be excluded from participating in Medicaid, through which we serve about 85 percent of our patients,” says Lupe Rodriguez, director of public affairs for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in San Jose. Some of those patients are covered by Medi-Cal, while others receive coverage from California’s Family PACT program, which receives 9 to 1 matching funds from federal Medicaid. An end to federal funding “would be incredibly devastating locally,” Rodriguez says. Planned Parenthood serves almost 85,000 women, men and children a year in the South Bay, both for reproductive health services and in its two primary care clinics. Rodriguez fears the impact on women of Trump’s other campaign promises, as well. “Their ability to make choices about their families could be impacted by forced deportation orders, which is very concerning to us,” she says. Most of the South Bay women with the resources to fly to the D.C. march, almost all of them white and college educated, wouldn’t be affected by Medicaid cuts, nor by threats to repeal Obamacare, register Muslims, or deport undocumented immigrants. For Bayersdorfer, that doesn’t matter. “The rhetoric against women in general and the normalization of hate and violence against anyone who isn’t a white man—that is personal,” she says. “Am

supporter extremely well: her mother. Nonetheless, she was still shocked by the election results. “The beliefs feel familiar, but I didn’t know it was half the country,” says Burgunder, a landscape designer who lives in San Jose’s Rose Garden neighborhood. “Going to a big march in Sacramento might have been more convenient, but I have the means. I could charge [the plane ticket], and I’m healthy. All I really want is to be a body there, since my vote didn’t matter.” Like other South Bay women flying to the march, Burgunder’s children influenced her decision to travel. After Trump’s win, her 10-year-old daughter was distraught. “She said, ‘I guess girls really aren’t as good as boys after all,’ and that made me cry,” Burgunder says. “Election night was the worst party I’d ever been to in my entire life,” says Robyn Stanton, 55, a Palo Alto lawyer who will bring her 15-year-old daughter to the D.C. march. She calls herself an “accidental activist,” spurred to action after “something switched” when Trump was elected. In her post-election shock, she convened a group of 24 peninsula women who are researching how to take action. “I felt like it was my duty to my children to keep progress alive.” After the election, Stanton called her 23-year-old son and asked if he’d voted. He hadn’t, thinking it wouldn’t matter either way. “I’m embarrassed,” she says. She considers her daughter’s plane ticket an investment in “the democratic process.” Stanton’s daughter will be just one of many teenagers accompanying their parents to D.C. Claudia Azalde, 16, led a walkout of several hundred students at Lincoln High School in San Jose after the election. “I posted something on Instagram and said, ‘Spread the word, guys.’” She applied to be a youth ambassador for the march, which she’ll attend with her mother, Rose Province, 50. “Even though you can’t vote, you still have the right to say what you think and have a voice,” Azalde says. Laura Allen, 18, voted for the first time in November and plans to wear a blue baseball cap with “Another Nasty Woman” embroidered across the top. A double major in English and education and member of the Chi Omega sorority at Oregon State University, she will study for her midterms on the flight back from D.C.

SIGN OF THE TIMES Donald Trump’s comments about women, as well as who he’s picked to fill out his administration, have put people on high alert. I specifically likely to be affected? No. But where do you draw the line?” The creators of the event, all white women, originally called it the Million Women March, but have since stepped back, giving the reins to women of color and changing the name out of respect to the 1997 march for black women. Some hope their presence will stand in for those who can’t attend. “We’re lucky to be able to go to D.C.,” says Province. “We’ll be marching in solidarity with everyone else.” Her daughter, Claudia, who identifies Christopher Penler via Shutterstock.com

as Latina, wishes more people had the resources to attend. “It would be more powerful if we had more people of color going,” she notes. Kirsty Duncan, 55, a real estate agent with the Sereno Group in Willow Glen, spends her free time supporting homeless women through the nonprofit she co-founded, On Route 22. A budget-slashing Trump administration could have a devastating effect on her housing work. “We had limited resources for a huge problem before,” she says. “I’m terrified of how

resources will be distributed now.” She recalls telling the homeless women she works with, “I’m going for all of you, because it’ll be more important than ever to have a voice.” Organizers hope that more women of color will attend the San Jose march. “That’s exactly why we’re having these [satellite] marches,” says Jenny Bradanini, an organizer for the San Jose event. “To make it completely inclusive and diverse so everyone has a chance to attend and make their voices heard.” Bradanini says planners

are doing “everything we can think of” to make sure that the march is not just “privileged white women.” At their Paint the Town outreach day, volunteers picked up flyers at 14 locations from Milpitas to Morgan Hill to distribute in their communities. Organizers have emailed groups like the Silicon Valley Black Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Foundation to spread the word. “D.C. is a long way away, and we have power in our community here,” Bradanini says. After the march, most attendees from Silicon Valley intend to continue taking action, but many aren’t quite sure how. “It’s time to become involved in local efforts,” Cartwright says. Many of the newer activists’ first impulse was to give money to progressive organizations. Burgunder donated instead of giving Christmas gifts, hopes to “invest in solar,” and wants to support the San Jose nonprofit Human Agenda, whose vigil she attended in November. Others, true to their Silicon Valley roots, plan to take action online. Azalde and her high school friends plan to set up a Twitter account with frequently updated action steps that will be “accessible” to people their age. Nack has joined a Facebook group called Pantsuit Action, based in San Francisco, that sends her a weekly list of tasks: “Here are your senators and their phone numbers, and here’s a script you can read,” she explains—and she does the routine faithfully. “I have to stay in the game,” she says. “I can’t just bitch and complain.”

Can’t Make It to Washington? Not everyone has the time and money to make it to the Jan. 21 women’s march in Washington D.C., so here are several more local opportunities to take action. Saturday, Jan. 14 is a national Day of Action for immigrant and refugee rights. The San Jose rally begins at 11am at City Hall. The School of Arts and Culture at Mexican Heritage Plaza will host STAND! A Day of Art and Solidarity on Monday, Jan. 16, with workshops, music and dance against bigotry starting at 10am. Planned Parenthood will rally to defend reproductive rights at the Capitol steps in Sacramento at 11:30am on Tuesday, Jan. 17. The Women's March San Jose will start at San Jose City Hall on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 10am, and end at the Plaza de César Chávez.

With seven albums under their belt, Bay Area metal trio High On Fire are living legends on the local stoner metal circuit. Founded in 1998 by Matt Pike—guitarist for pioneering San Jose doom group, Sleep—the Oakland-based High On Fire have enjoyed success since their first studio album, The Art Of Self Defense, released in 2000. Seventeen years later, High on Fire are recognized as one of the biggest metal acts to come out of the South Bay and continue to write music. In a recent interview, Pike said he hopes to complete two new albums in 2017—one with High on Fire and another with Sleep. (DSJ)

The New York Times describes Sarah Cahill as “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde.” Both a player and composer of 21st century classical and experimental music, Cahill has performed with the Alexander String Quartet and New Century Chamber Orchestra, and her albums have inspired other musicians, from Yoko Ono to Ingram Marshall. The 56-yearold pianist is Bay Area-based and continues to showcase her talent and the work of others on her two radio programs on KPFA in Berkeley and KALW in San Francisco. (DJS)

Perhaps the biggest alternative rock group to ever come out of San Jose returns to the South Bay for a concert benefitting the Nine Lives Foundation. Formed in San Jose in 1994, the quartet scored their first big hit with “Walkin’ on the Sun,” from their 1997 full-length debut, Fush Yu Mang. The group went on to chart several more well-known singles. In recent years, Smash Mouth has served as punching bag for music critics and Twitter trolls. Whatev. Haters gonna hate.

Warbucks (Gilgamesh Taggett) to adopt for just two weeks. It’s coming on Christmas and as a former orphan himself, he wants to do a charity. Of course, Annie is chosen and brought back to Warbucks' mansion, where she works her magic on the entire staff. No need to give the rest away— Annie charms everyone she meets, even President Roosevelt (Jeffrey B. Duncan), in a fun and semi-patriotic scene. Miss Hannigan, her brother, Rooster (Michael Santora), and his girlfriend (Mallory King) do their criminal best to horn in on Annie's good fortune, in the process delivering a wonderfully smart version of “Easy Street.” And you can bet the sun comes out in a couple of rousing renditions of “Tomorrow,"” the show's signature song.

This touring production, now in its third year, boasts excellent performances

A New Deal AMERICAN CLASSIC The current touring production of ‘Annie’ is as fun as ever.

‘Annie’ delivers charm in latest national touring production BY JEANIE K. SMITH

O

NE OF THE most popular musicals in Broadway history, Annie continues to endear itself to new generations as it makes its way around the globe in a touring production from Troika Entertainment, brought to us locally by Broadway San Jose. Originally debuted in 1977, with book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin, the nostalgic show won seven Tony awards and ran for nearly six years. It has

been translated into 28 languages and performed in as many countries, from Argentina to Zimbabwe. If you've never seen Annie, this is a good production to catch when it comes around. Directed by Charnin, this tour features stunning sets and costumes, catchy choreography, the requisite adorable little girls and wonderful performances by the principal actors. Based on the oncepopular Harold Gray comic strip, Little Orphan Annie, the musical follows the rags-to-riches adventures of the feisty 11-year-old Annie (Tori Bates). She languishes in a state orphanage run by the weary and mildly abusive Miss Hannigan (Erin Fish), plotting her escape so she can find her parents— she knows they must be looking for

her, somewhere, even though they had to abandon her as a baby in 1922. Now it's 1933, the Depression grips the country, Roosevelt has been elected and everyone is scrambling to survive. But that doesn't matter to Annie—all she needs is folks to call her own, as we learn in her first solo number, "Maybe." Her optimism and rugged will to make the best of her meager circumstances inspire her orphan friends and annoy the heck out of Miss Hannigan. The other orphans help Annie make her escape and, as she wanders New York City, she encounters a “Hooverville,” as the Depression slum encampments were called, where the down-and-out residents sing sarcastically about their fate. In a police raid, Annie is caught and returned to the orphanage—but escapes Miss Hannigan's wrath when a pretty young secretary comes looking for an orphan to borrow. Grace Farrell (Casey Prins) needs an orphan for billionaire Oliver

This touring production, now in its third year, boasts excellent performances from Taggett, Fish, Prins, Santora, and King in the adult principal roles. They possess great voices and are capable dancers—clearly enjoying their turn in this fun classic. Bates makes her professional debut as Annie, and is a determined and polished young actress. The entire ensemble is strong, most of them playing multiple roles, demonstrating admirable depth of talent for the overall show. Scenic design by Beowulf Boritt is outstanding. His elaborate set structures and backdrops are a cut above most touring sets. Costumes by Suzy Benzinger, lighting by Ken Billington, and choreography by Liza Gennaro are also standouts. Vocal miking seemed to have some issues with orphan voices on opening night, making them shrill and treble, but improved by the second act. Thanks to Broadway San Jose for bringing us an entertaining and memorable rendition of one of the world's favorite musicals, appreciated by fans young and old.


get a new, beautiful life, in the photos of Jake Fouts.

An Orderly Decay THE SINEWY, TWISTING shapes of the natural world collide with the exact geometry of the man-made in Jake Fouts’ photography exhibit, “Archetypes,” currently showing at The Studio Rock Climbing gym in San Jose’s SoFA District. The seemingly random forms of twigs, branches, and bone-hard angles and perfect circles strike a harmonious chord with the hard angles of metal brackets, the perfectly round circles of hydraulic gauges and the glinting glass casing of incandescent bulbs. Rust, decay and their shared status as found objects is what connects this assortment of aesthetically arranged detritus, which Fouts—a longtime San Jose denizen and bartender with a passion for photography—meticulously collects, refines and then stages for his earthy still life snapshots of deterioration. “My main focus was to create images of ‘specimens’ from manmade and natural objects with a focus on composition, color and context,” Fouts, a friend of mine, explains in the title card of his exhibit. Indeed, Fouts has paid close attention to hue in this collection Archetypes of works. His palate hews earthward, full of muted yellowbrowns, weathered grays and matte blacks. In one image—the Thru February largest of the series—oxidized hunks of metal, which appear The Studio to have been pulled from the wreckage of some long-ago Climbing, San Jose demolished power plant, are woven together with leaves, chutes, feathers and dried flowers. Moss sprouts from one end of an angled metal pipe joint; on the other end, a vacuum tube peaks out. It looks like the work of some mad scientist from the turn of the 20th century—an attempt to transform the innate energy of plants into electricity, or perhaps communicate with the trees. The work is in some ways an ode to photography. There is no glue keeping the pieces together and the lens of his camera is what freezes the piece into place. Fouts drew some of his inspiration from the work of Andy Goldsworthy— known for arranging rocks, leaves and sticks into geometric patterns, with a specific attention to color. “The beauty of photography is capturing a single moment in time that will never bee seen again,” he explains. But it’s also a reflection of Fouts’ fascination with how both the natural and manmade world follow a similar trajectory of degeneration. “I like the thought that things deteriorate in the same way. Whether it’s manmade or natural, everything takes on the same color as it decays.” —Nick Veronin

Family Reunion YOU NEVER KNOW Messy questions linger and aren’t fully answered in ‘Julieta,’ which gives the film heft.

Restraint, real-world emotion make for believable drama in ‘Julieta’ BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

L

IVING A LONG life means dwelling on a stage with numerous trapdoors. Players vanish or reappear, as part of some grand design that becomes all the more baffling as time passes.

Three stories by the Nobel laureate Alice Munro, from her 2004 collection Runaway, were the source for Pedro Almodóvar’s latest film, the serious but never somber Julieta. Here the Spanish master presents a “tearless melodrama,” in which a woman copes with the inexplicable vanishing of her daughter, Antía.

Having no explanation for the rift, Julieta corrodes inside, living with the guilt of whatever it was that she did to cause her daughter to leave her. The loss essentially changes her into two separate people. The “before” picture is Julieta as a perky, substitute classics teacher (Adriana Ugarte) with one of those dandelionlike haircuts that came around when punk rock went uptown. (The hairstyle helps, but we can also guess at the date. Julieta’s students, reaching for someone to compare to the beauty of Ulysses’ Calypso, pick Kim Basinger. One recalls the actress’ turn as Vicki Vale in 1989’s Batman: “Stop the press! Who’s that?”) The older, solitary Julieta of today (played by Emma Suárez) shows the cracks of age. Julieta is about to leave her home in Madrid, when she gets

the news that an old friend has seen Antía with her three children of her own, somewhere on the shore of Italy’s Lake Como. With grace and sureness, Almodóvar flashes back through Julieta’s history, stopping long enough to show us the tryst she had with a stranger on a train—Antía’s father. The stranger, Xoan (Daniel Grao), has a sad story; he’s a fisherman whose wife is in a multi-year coma. When Julieta learns she’s pregnant with Antia, she tracks Xoan down. At his house, he deals with his rudely possessive housekeeper Marian, played by Almodóvar regular Rossy de Palma. De Palma, who has as arrogant a nose as an actress ever looked down, seems to be honoring the memory of mean Mrs. Danvers in Rebecca. Marian’s lack of discretion, and her serious conservatism toward anyone who isn’t Xoan, is key to how Julieta loses the man in her life, and her daughter as well. Julieta’s color is phenomenal. The richness of this film shows how

superficial the saturated primary colors were in the neo-musical La La Land, as affectless as the plastic brightness of a children’s book. Julieta’s opening shot of deep crimson satin folds suggests perfect rose petals, or what people meant when they used to say “the cockles of the heart.” The entire family of reds gleams, from wine, to magenta, to scarlets so rich they’re almost black. Jean-Claude Larrieu’s photography is hypnotic, even in ordinary transitional shots: a tiny red car gleaming like a gem in an aerial shot of mountain roads. Instead of Munro’s native Huron County, Ontario, Almodóvar shoots in coastal Galicia; Xoan’s seaside house looks out at the Rio Ferrol Estuary, a landscape strongly resembling Point Reyes. It may be that Almodóvar had in mind a mainstream hit, the recreation of what the studios in California did so well 60 years ago. He was originally thinking of making this in English, in Vancouver with Meryl Streep. Canada is the place where melodrama went to retire, a home for the depraved expressionist melos of Guy Maddin and Atom Egoyan’s superficially calm and emotionally devastating stories of sundered families. It’s hard to guess how this director’s taste for dramatic flamboyance would have run up against Streep’s precision. Over the course of a four decade career, Almodóvar gave us numerous screwball comedies as well as ridiculously good horror (The Skin I Live In). But the extremes in Julieta are well within the bounds of the elegant Hollywood melodrama, outside of that zone of breakdowns or tears—the best of these women’s pictures had but one tear, usually. That restraint is what makes Julieta so well-turned, such a balance of smooth women and jagged feelings. That’s what makes it so absorbing, with its imagery of ethereal lost love, in the jigsaw puzzle of a torn photograph, or soft red lips kissing a still tender, freshly tattooed heart on a man’s shoulder.

metroactive FILM SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

(1952) Scheduled for theaters before the passing of its star Debbie Reynolds, it’s always timely—and puts La La Land firmly in its place. With much clearance space, it’s the best musical ever made in Hollywood. It’s a comedy about the advent of sound film and the troubles it caused silent-movie actors, who had been talented pantomime artists but never elocutionists. Don Lockwood (the sweet-on-himself Gene Kelly) is a hambone star in silent costume dramas. A young ingenue, Kathy (Debbie Reynolds), invents the idea of dubbing, thus saving the careers of Lockwood and his chum Cosmo (Donald O'Connor). All three run afoul of the film's villain, the grasping leading lady, Lina Lamont (Jean Hagan), with a chin that would dismay a boxer and a voice that would curdle gasoline. Singin' in the Rain has its cream-puff fantasy moments, such as the dream-sequence ballet near the end. Fifty feet of floating gauze are tossed about by the gusts of offscreen airplane motors, all for the purpose of unwrapping Cyd Charisse and her nine miles of legs. It earns its Technicolor raptures with a hardheaded script by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The film is built almost entirely out of 1930s recycled tunes, co-written by producer Arthur Freed. The title number debuted in The Hollywood Revue of 1929, performed by the ukulele wizard Cliff Edwards and a line of chorus girls in yellow rain sou'westers. The Broadway Melody's sequel, Broadway Melody of 1936, was the source of Singin' in the Rain's “Broadway Rhythm”; it also features an ambitious rainy-day dance performed by Eleanor Powell that looks far more technically difficult than Kelly’s famed routine. She tromps through sometimes calf-deep puddles, swinging partner George Murphy with her. The Kelly number wasn’t easy, though. Clive Hirschhorn’s biography of Kelly says that the dancer did his version with a fever of 103, while trying to coordinate the tapping of the umbrella with the beats of the music. Though the backdrop looks like a sound stage, the scene was filmed outdoors. Since the budget was too small for the overtime required for a night shoot, Kelly and Donen shot in daylight, with tarps blocking the sun. When you see the Powell/Murphy number, it looks like hard work, performers trying to wow you. But Kelly's dance is better remembered because of its illusion of simplicity— of an artificial kind of a guy suddenly

Now Playing A MONSTER CALLS

Like the fairy-tale creature he is, the title character in A Monster Calls brings a challenge. In accordance with the Law of Threes, he will tell three stories. You, in return, must tell him one true tale. Emerging from a massive yew tree, unfolding into a gnarled figure of some twenty feet in height, he’s like the warrior ents in Lord of the Rings or a more frightening and better spoken Groot. The rumbling voice belongs to Liam Neeson, pitched down, and all the fiercer for it. The animation in the three stories that this monster tells is as gorgeous as Kubo and the Two Strings—forests and villages unfold like paper blossoms, or spiral out into the multicolored fractals of wet-onwet watercolors. J. A. Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) centers his touching film on the emotions of the monster’s companion. Conor (Lewis MacDougall) an English schoolboy, has a mother who is slowly dying, and he’s pitilessly bullied at school. The mother is Rogue One’s Felicity Jones, in perhaps her best performance. Most likely, Conor’s future home will be with his loveless grandmother (Sigourney Weaver, using a self-conscious British accent she probably could have done without). Conor is hoped to be spared a life with this cold woman, when his father arrives from his current home in the U.S. But the man is useless. Dad’s idea of consolation begins and ends with his repeating the old English expression, “Worse things happen at sea.” It seems Patrick Ness’ source novel would be most mind-blowing to younger readers: the revelation that a story that starts with witches and handsome princes may finish in a different way than the Grimm Brothers wrote it down. However, A Monster Calls retrieves its essential keenness in its finish, in the story Conor must tell, and yet cannot bring himself to say. This hard-edged fantasy reveals honest, unsentimental feelings… the sort of feelings many will recall from the ordeal of tending doomed lovers or parents, after some monstrous disease called upon them.

PRAYING FOR THE END Liam Neeson plays a long-lost priest in Martin Scorsese’s overlong ‘Silence.’

The Agony and the Agony MARTIN SCORSESE’S dream project, Silence, is done at last, and it’s one large, dry hunk of crisis of faith. It’s a less bloody but still torture-wracked remake of The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), complete with the temptation to a peaceful life. It’s seemingly the longest and most pulse-free of Scorsese’s primarily religious movies, including Kundun (1997) and Last Temptation (1988); in it we’re taken on a tour of Scorsese’s recollections of the classic studio era, when religious movie kitsch used to draw so heavily from the contents of European art museums. A pair of suitably dogged Jesuits (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) are sent from Portugal to find out what became of a long-lost priest (Liam Neeson) sent on a mission years before. The blackrobed Europeans discover a Catholic colony in southern Japan in turmoil, with converts being martyred by the score; an inquisitor called Inoue (Issey Ogata) is sending his soldiers after the faithful. When the priests are separated, Father Sebastiao (Garfield) is left in the care of a backsliding guide, whose faith can never stand the tests of the persecutors. Jailed in a polished wooden cage (the timbers are meant to look like a smooth, lacquered cross in an expensive painting of the crucifixion), Sebastiao is left to chat

with jesting Pilate Inoue, an unusually open-minded old noble—a man who sees that what we have here is a failure to communicate between Buddhists and Christians. But the martyrdom Sebastiao seeks seems to elude him— and Sebastiao isn’t certain Silence he hears the voice of God anymore. R; 166 Min. Many Catholic kids will Camera have had some fun in their Cinemas youths wondering how they would deal if pagans tried to make them apostates. Would they spit on the cross and escape at the costs of their immortal souls? Or would they endure their torments like a true Christian martyr? We all have our own crosses and crises, but this game of “How Faithful Are You?” is something people tend to outgrow. One liked the movie most when it wasn’t focusing on a religious fanatic trying to get God’s signal tuned in, or watching poor Christian peasants fed to the flames or the waves. Ogata runs away with the movie. He’s an old ambler, a smiler, and good at cuffing a dumb assistant with his fan. (His overbite matches Scorsese’s—perhaps he’s the director’s surrogate.) You end up on his side. How much patience is an old man supposed to have with a blinkered young fanatic? —Richard von Busack

REVIEW

finding something spontaneous and real in himself. What’s missing in current musicals is both that simplicity and confidence—who’d call a nervous musical like Moulin Rouge! simple or self-confident? If the future of the movie musical is, essentially, in its past, what ought to be borrowed from Singing' in the Rain is its wised-up attitude toward the making of entertainment. (Plays Jan 15 and 18 at various South Bay theaters, via Fathom Events.) (RvB)

Heavy Industrial POSITIVELY METAL On ‘Rise,’ veteran industrial metalheads Klank embrace the good in life—along with brutal instrumentation.

San Jose’s Klank take time on hard-charging new LP, ‘Rise’ BY NICK VERONIN

J

UDGING BY THE yearslong gaps in Klank’s discography, one might presume that the San Jose-based industrial metal band prefers to take its time in the studio. But the truth is, until the tracking of the band’s forthcoming fulllength album—Rise, their sixth—the guys from Klank were quite impatient. “This was probably the first time that we took our time—really took our time with it,” Klank’s guitarist, keyboardist and loops programmer, Pat Servideo, says of the recording

process. “We were always a band back in the day that wrote and recorded at the same time.” It shows. The resulting record, their first since 2012’s Urban Warfare, is a highly polished affair, lacquered in effects and brimming with electronic flourishes, which recall the work of Nine Inch Nails and Fear Factory. Servideo says that Rise represents both a new, more time-intensive approach to songwriting for Klank. But, he adds, in many ways, it is also a return to form. “Musically, I think we got back to the electronic sound that was more prevalent in our older releases,” he says, noting that the band’s previous effort, Urban Warfare, had synths and automated beats, but that they were buried beneath the traditional metal instruments of guitar, bass and drums.

On Rise, the electronics are front and center. There are whooshing, overly compressed, digital-trash-can clangs and pixelated distortion patches; deep ravines of reverb and rapid-fire programmed beats. Klank frontman Daren Diolosa screams through a fog of dial-up modem static as the heavy guitars merge with the virtual instruments swirling around them. Which isn’t to say Diolosa and Co. have gone full-on Trent Reznor. After all, Klank were founded in the mid-’90s, and Servideo says he and his band mates were all heavily influenced by thrash and groove metal from the start. In fact, when Klank relocated from its native New York to San Jose in the late-2000s, Servideo says he was stoked to be moving to the Bay Area—the epicenter of the thrash metal movement. “I grew up on that Bay Area scene, even though I’m from New York,” he says. After finding success in a previous band—Circle of Dust, where

he served as guitarist—Diolosa founded Klank with Servideo and a drummer who has since left the group. The band signed to metal label Tooth and Nail and released their debut LP, Still Suffering. They soon left Tooth and Nail, following up Still Suffering with their second full-length, Numb, in 1999, which they put out on their own label, SmokeDogg Productions. It wasn’t long until the band went on an indefinite hiatus. “It was before that was the cool thing to do,” Servideo says of Klank’s decision to start their own label and self-release their sophomore album. As a group of musicians in their mid-20s, he says they simply weren’t ready for the pressures of managing themselves. “The business side really got to us,” he explains. And so they disbanded around 2002, taking five years off from the band. And then one of the band’s “biggest fans” died, according to Servideo. The group decided to reunite to play a one-off show in honor of the fan. They enjoyed playing together so much that they decided to reunite. They moved to San Jose where their drummer, Eric Wilkins, had relocated during the hiatus. Since then, Servideo says, Klank have been enjoying the process of playing and recording a lot more— something he expects comes with living a little, maturing a lot and gaining more perspective. “I think it’s more positive—lyricwise—than our previous releases,” he says of the new album. “The title of the record is Rise. There’s so much going on in the world today. We’re going more positive with the lyrics.” For the uninitiated, it might seem odd to think that the 10 brutal tracks on Klank’s new album could be uplifting, but Servideo says that the fans get it. “We hear from fans a lot,” he says. “Everybody goes through struggles. They enjoy hearing the positivity. It lets them know they aren’t alone. That we go through the same things.”

CONCERT

ZAETOWN ROCK Fusing shoegaze and four-on-the-floor rock, San Jose scene veterans come together to form Mercy High.

Keeping It Local FOR SOME CREATIVES, San Jose can feel both claustrophobic and incestuous—like some backwater city in the middle of nowhere—and also impossibly sprawling, like any other faceless suburb. Not for Jafar Green. “It’s like a small town disguised as a big city,” the San Jose native says. “That’s what I kinda like about it.” Similarly, Green’s band, Mercy High, pack a lot into a little. So far the quartet have only released a three-song EP on their Bandcamp page, but that doesn’t really tell the whole story. Although there are only four players in Green’s band, there is a wealth of local music history to be found in the group.

Mercy High Jan 13, 9pm, Free Caravan Lounge, San Jose

“All of us have been involved in a lot of other bands,” Green says, before launching into a laundry list of significant San Jose acts—including The Bang, Rachel Mae and The Havens, Fighting Jacks, TrashKannon and The Odd Numbers. “We’re all guys that have been in San Jose for years.” Though everyone in the group has a long local music resume, Green is the one piloting this project—after years of playing in other people’s bands. “Mercy High came together because I wanted to put together something that was the kind of music that I wanted to play”—namely a mash-up of “dreamy, shoegaze-y elements” and “heavier elements.” Green says he draws on Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, My Bloody Valentine and Ride, to name a few. But listening to Green sing—focusing on the timbre of his voice, a deep baritone, backed by fuzzed-out, psychedelic guitar work—it’s easy to hear other influences, like Jimi Hendrix and ’70s Detroit proto-punks Death. “I think that’s just something that comes naturally—me being a black man playing rock and roll,” he says with a laugh. “I grew up with Hendrix albums around the house. That Death record was absolutely amazing.” Then again, not to attach unnecessary weight to race, Green observes: “You’re only going to sound like your record collection.” —Nick Veronin

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have a divine

mandate to love bigger and stronger and truer than ever before. It's high time to freely give the gifts you sometimes hold back from those you care for. It's high time to take full ownership of neglected treasures so you can share them with your worthy allies. It's high time to madly cultivate the generosity of spirit that will enable you to more easily receive the blessings that can and should be yours. Be a brave, softhearted warrior of love!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I love and respect

Tinker Bell, Kermit the Frog, Shrek, Wonder Woman, SpongeBob SquarePants, Snow White, Road Runner, and Calvin and Hobbes. They have provided me with much knowledge and inspiration. Given the current astrological omens, I suspect that you, too, can benefit from cultivating your relationships with characters like them. It's also a favorable time for you to commune with the spirits of Harriet Tubman, Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, or any other historical figures who inspire you. I suggest you have dreamlike conversations with your most interesting ancestors, as well. Are you still in touch with your imaginary friends from childhood? If not, renew acquaintances.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): "I never wish to be easily defined," wrote Cancerian author Franz Kafka. "I'd rather float over other people’s minds as something fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person." Do you ever have that experience? I do. I'm a Crab like you, and I think it's common among members of our tribe. For me, it feels liberating. It's a way to escape people's expectations of me and enjoy the independence of living in my fantasies. But I plan to do it a lot less in 2017, and I advise you to do the same. We should work hard at coming all the way down to earth. We will thrive by floating less and being better grounded; by being less fuzzy and more solid; by not being so inscrutable, but rather more knowable. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Here's my declaration: "I hereby forgive, completely and permanently, all motorists who have ever irked me with their rude and bad driving. I also forgive, totally and forever, all tech support people who have insulted me, stonewalled me, or given me wrong information as I sought help from them on the phone. I furthermore forgive, utterly and finally, all family members and dear friends who have hurt my feelings." Now would be a fantastic time for you to do what I just did, Leo: Drop grudges, let go of unimportant outrage, and issue a blanket amnesty. Start with the easier stuff—the complaints against strangers and acquaintances— and work your way up to the allies you cherish. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There are some

authors who both annoy me and intrigue me. Even though I feel allergic to the uncomfortable ideas they espouse, I'm also fascinated by their unique provocations. As I read their words, I'm half-irritated at their grating declarations, and yet greedy for more. I disagree with much of what they say, but feel grudgingly grateful for the novel perspectives they prod me to discover. (Nobel Prize-winner Elias Canetti is one such author.) In accordance with the current astrological rhythms, Virgo, I invite you to seek out similar influences—for your own good!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now would be an excellent time to add new beauty to your home. Are there works of art or buoyant plants or curious symbols that would lift your mood? Would you consider hiring a feng shui consultant to rearrange

the furniture and accessories so as to enhance the energetic flow? Can you entice visits from compelling souls whose wisdom and wit would light up the place? Tweak your imagination so it reveals tricks about how to boost your levels of domestic bliss.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 2017, you will have

unprecedented opportunities to re-imagine, revise, and reinvent the story of your life. You'll be able to forge new understandings about your co-stars and reinterpret the meanings of crucial plot twists that happened once upon a time. Now check out these insights from author Mark Doty: "The past is not static, or ever truly complete; as we age we see from new positions, shifting angles. A therapist friend of mine likes to use the metaphor of the kind of spiral stair that winds up inside a lighthouse. As one moves up that stair, the core at the center doesn't change, but one continually sees it from another vantage point; if the past is a core of who we are, then our movement in time always brings us into a new relation to that core."

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The Tao Te Ching is a poetically philosophical text written by a Chinese sage more than two millennia ago. Numerous authors have translated it into modern languages. I've borrowed from their work to craft a horoscope that is precisely suitable for you in the coming weeks. Here's your high-class fortune cookie oracle: Smooth your edges, untangle your knots, sweeten your openings, balance your extremes, relax your mysteries, soften your glare, forgive your doubts, love your breathing, harmonize your longings, and marvel at the sunny dust. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I recently

discovered Tree of Jesse, a painting by renowned 20th-century artist Marc Chagall. I wanted to get a copy to hang on my wall. But as I scoured the Internet, I couldn't find a single business that sells prints of it. Thankfully, I did locate an artist in Vietnam who said he could paint an exact replica. I ordered it, and was pleased with my new objet d'art. It was virtually identical to Chagall's original. I suggest you meditate on taking a metaphorically similar approach, Capricorn. Now is a time when substitutes may work as well as what they replace.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): "It is often safer to be in chains than to be free," wrote Franz Kafka. That fact is worthy of your consideration in the coming weeks, Aquarius. You can avoid all risks by remaining trapped inside the comfort that is protecting you. Or you can take a gamble on escaping, and hope that the new opportunities you attract will compensate you for the sacrifice it entails. I'm not here to tell you what to do. I simply want you to know what the stakes are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "All pleasures are in the last analysis imaginary, and whoever has the best imagination enjoys the most pleasure." So said 19th-century German novelist Theodor Fontane, and now I'm passing his observation on to you. Why? Because by my astrological estimates, you Pisceans will have exceptional imaginations in 2017—more fertile, fervent, and freedom-loving than ever before. Therefore, your capacity to drum up pleasure will also be at an all-time high. There is a catch, however. Your imagination, like everyone else's, is sometimes prone to churning out superstitious fears. To take maximum advantage of its blissinducing potential, you will have to be firm about steering it in positive directions.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is a huge holy tree that links all of the nine worlds to each other. Perched on its uppermost branch is an eagle with a hawk sitting on its head. Far below, living near the roots, is a dragon. The hawk and eagle stay in touch with the dragon via Ratatoskr, a talkative squirrel that runs back and forth between the heights and the depths. Alas, Ratatoskr traffics solely in insults. That's the only kind of message the birds and the dragon ever have for each other. In accordance with the astrological omens, Aries, I suggest you act like a far more benevolent version of Ratatoskr in the coming weeks. Be a feisty communicator who roams far and wide to spread uplifting gossip and energizing news.

ADVICE GODDESS

By AMY ALKON

AdviceAmy@AOL.com

My girlfriend of six years is breaking up with me. My question is: How do I let our friends and my family know? I’m thinking a mass email telling my side of the story. Then I wouldn’t have to have the same conversation over and over with different people.—Glum Sending a mass email is a great way to get some piece of information out to everybody—from your best friend to 1.4 million people on Twitter to three random drunk dudes who really shouldn’t be on their phones at their boss’s funeral in Estonia. The ability we have online to dispense a little information to a whole lot of people, immediately, effortlessly, is about the coolest thing ever—and the Frankenstein monster of our time. As I write in “Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck,” because all the groovy new digital tools are so fun and easy to use, we often “fall back on what’s technically possible” as our behavioral standard. Our chimp-like impulse to just click already derails picky-wicky concerns we might otherwise have, such as “Hmm, wonder whether sending that might get me, oh, you know, fired, ostracized, and sleeping in a refrigerator box on the corner.” Consider that anything you email can be rapidly shared—and shared and shared and shared. For example, novelist and professor Robert Olen Butler emailed five of his grad students the sad (and rather creepy) details of the demise of his marriage, asking them to “clarify the

issues” for other students who wanted to know. The email quickly made the rounds in the literary world and ended up in The New York Times and on Gawker, where they “clarified” that his wife had left him to become one of four women in “Ted Turner’s collection.” But even a less tawdry, less tycoon-filled breakup email may go more viral than one might like. Anthropologist Jerome Barkow, who studies gossip, explains that we evolved to be keenly interested in information that could have some bearing on our ability to survive, mate, and navigate socially. As Barkow puts it (and as is borne out by others’ research), gossip about how soundly somebody’s sleeping is unlikely to be as spreadworthy as whom they’re sleeping with. However, our propensity to spread gossip may be both the problem with emailing your news and the solution to getting it out there. Consider going oldschool: Ask a few, um, chatty friends to put the word out to your circle, answer any questions people have, and let your wishes be known (like if you aren’t ready to talk about it). All in all, you’ll get the job done, but in a much more controlled, contained way.

I’ve been seeing this woman for two months. I really like her. She’s made some mistakes —two bad marriages, some promiscuity, running from debts— but she’s determined to change. My friends think she’s bad news. But our relationship—though mostly sexual so far—has been terrific. Shouldn't my intuition count more than my friends’ opinions?—Fretting When you’re deciding how to invest your life savings, you probably don’t say, “I’ll just take a moment to ask my penis.” Well, your intuition is about as reliable a judge of your girlfriend’s character. Intuitions (aka “gut feelings”) are conclusions we leap to— automatically, without the intervention of rational thought. Our mind flashes on this and that from our past experience, and up pops a feeling. The problem is, we’re prone to overconfidence that our intuitions are correct—mistaking strong feelings for informed feelings. Psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Gary Klein find that certain people’s intuitions are somewhat more likely to be trustworthy—those who repeatedly

encounter the same situation, like a surgeon who only does appendectomies. Her hunches about a patient’s appendix are more informed because they come out of repeated experience and because she presumably gets corrective feedback when she guesses wrong (though, ideally, not from a monitor making that awful flatlining sound). But Kahneman tells McKinsey Quarterly, “My general view … would be that you should not take your intuitions at face value.” You need to go out of your way to look for evidence that your intuitions are wrong. In this case, it will take time and challenges to her character—and your actually wanting to see whether she acts ethically or does what’s easiest.

SILICON SILICONALLEYS ALLEYS

Escape from SJ WAR OF WORDS Viet Thanh Nguyen’s forthcoming collection includes the short story, War Years, which recalls the bustling market his parents ran in San Jose.

Pulitzer winner Viet Thanh Nguyen puts San Jose on literary map BY GARY SINGH

V

IET THANH NGUYEN is the V.S. Naipaul of San Jose’s underbelly. Or maybe the Vietnamese Nelson Algren of Santa Clara Street. His short story “War Years” conjures up exactly the right inner and outer conflicts that characterize the East-West clash of San Jose’s most prominent thoroughfare. San Jose is on the literary map once again.

But first some background. Twenty-five years ago, when I’d

regularly haunt the notorious Charlie’s Liquors at Fourth and Santa Clara streets, right where City Hall now sits, I’d gaze in everyday wonderment at the glorious downmarket legends across the street: Lenny’s Cocktails, the Quality Cafe, and New Saigon Market. In the latter case, the always-bustling mom ’n’ pop grocery store was one of many Vietnamese-owned places I came to know along those several blocks of Santa Clara Street, including ABC Liquors and F&P Liquors. There were also Vietnamese hair salons and cleaners, but I didn’t go to any of those. Little did I know that, a quartercentury later, the New Saigon Market owner’s offspring would win

the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. The Sympathizer, by Viet Thanh Nguyen, came out in 2015 and won just about every award. It is truly one of the most intense books I’ve read in years. Viet escaped San Jose about the time I was first discovering Charlie’s Liquors. He eventually wound up with a Ph.D. in English from Berkeley and started teaching at the University of Southern California, where he remains to this day. At USC, he is the Aerol Arnold chair of English and professor of English and American studies and ethnicity, pumping out scholarship left and right, in addition to winning awards. In 2016, Viet seemed to have a good year. The Sympathizer came out in paperback, and his nonfiction work Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War,’ was a finalist for the National Book Award. Viet’s fiction and nonfiction, ingested together or separately, will redefine everything you think you know

about the conflict Vietnamese people call “The American War.” On the local front, New Saigon Market unfortunately went by the wayside in the early 2000s. With a shiny new City Hall coming in, San Jose didn’t want any downmarket riffraff across the street, so they slaughtered the entire northern side of Santa Clara Street between Fourth and Fifth streets. Gone was the glorious bottom-of-the-barrel dive Lenny’s Cocktails. Gone was the $1.99 breakfast at Quality Cafe. And of course, gone was New Saigon Market. In textbook San Jose fashion, the city transformed all of it into an empty parking lot, which is still there, soon to be transformed into a Chinese-financed skyscraper. So, just last year, in one of those classic face-palm scenarios where the city of San Jose tries to vindicate its own bumbling ineptitude, the politicians brought Viet back to town and gave him a city commendation for winning the Pulitzer Prize. Meaning, Viet Thanh Nguyen—a formidable new voice in American letters and now famous the world over—received an award in City Hall, directly across the street from where the city demolished the very market his parents built by working 12 hours a day for 20 years. Vamping on the delicious irony of it all, Viet gave a powerful speech that spoke to the loneliness and alienation of growing up as a war refugee in San Jose, seeing American businesses that didn’t want his family here, always feeling out of place, never truly at home, and longing to escape the disenchantment of such a town. But thankfully, the psychological scars that San Jose left on Viet helped carve him into a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. It’s one of the most heroic coming-ofage tales in local history. Which brings us right back to the story “War Years,” included in Viet’s new book of short stories, The Refugees, which drops in a few weeks. The stories explore the effects of the refugee experience on family dynamics and relationships across the Vietnamese diaspora. In particular, War Years brings New Saigon Market to life, in all its bustling glory, like no other literary work about San Jose ever has. No matter how tall may be the skyscraper that will rise on that empty parking lot, it will always be haunted by the ghosts of New Saigon Market.

The Virginia-based chain is making its first venture outside the Washington, D.C., area, and decided to open a restaurant in, of all the places, The Cats, the Los Gatos drink and dance institution. I brought along my 6-year-old pizza expert, whose love for pizza is matched only by his love of all things trains. Firenza sports an impressive lineup of regular and gluten-free crusts, six sauces, eight meats and cheeses, 17 fruits and vegetables, and nine finishing sauces. Their biggest claim to fame is an unheard of “Cali-style” ($1.99), where they’ll top the pie with a Romaine and spring mix that’s seasoned with a vinaigrette, and then finished with some fresh slices of avocado. They also have a preset menu of signature pies, which come in at 10 inches, whether custom or preset, and are priced the same at a paltry $8.99 each. We ordered their signature Firenza—mozzarella-provolone blend, pepperoni, sausage, artichoke, red onions, peppers, fresh garlic—and a Cali-style, as well as a classic Margherita with my son’s usual toppings: pepperoni and sausage. The first thing we noticed was the gooeyness and quality of the cheese, as it gives a nice stretch as you pull the slice away from the pie. The ingredients themselves are all fresh and top-notch and are purchased daily. Having been to all of the BYOP joints in the area, I can attest that Firenza’s is the best of the bunch. With a nice chew and a good bite, it’s also sturdy enough to hold all the ingredients together. The flavors were terrific, and the added crunch from the semolina flour is a nice touch. The even cooking can be attributed to their Turbochef convection oven which cooks their dough in less than three minutes. My only criticism is there was very little char on the crust, which is a signature of a classic wood-fired oven. As for the Cali-style, I was hesitant because I’m a bit of a pizza purist (read snob) and the thought of salad on my pie seemed like heresy. But I felt I’d be remiss in my duties to not try it. The avocado and greens were actually very good, making the fairly heavy pizza seem light and healthy. I’m awaiting my excommunication any day now. In the endless sea of BYOP there is now a clear winner, and my guest expert agreed. With fresh ingredients, an exceptional crust and a philanthropic soul—they’ve raised more than $5K for the Los Gatos United Soccer team—Firenza is the new standard in fast-casual pies. —John Dyke FIRENZA PIZZA 681 Blossom Hill Rd, Los Gatos. 408.442.5433

NAAN OF YOUR BUSINESS Zareen pushes the envelope to a taste bud explosion with its jalapeño cheese naan.

Zareen’s Teases the Senses

T

HE LINE AT Zareen’s new Palo Alto location stretches to the door. It’s raining, so all the tables inside are occupied with small talk and anxious glances toward the kitchen: “When are my kababs going to arrive?”

Again and again, a lone server hands out silver platters of a curry meal plate, a clear favorite. The place is bustling and just as stuffed as the jalapeño cheese naan. That’s right: a jalapeño cheese naan, described as “designer pizza meets desi naan.” Guests will also find that half of the “Between the Bread” options on the menu come with masala-spiced french fries. But these East-meets-West concoctions are really a supporting cast for a halal menu featuring Pakistani street food and traditional Indian dishes. A series of glass partitions, like a cafeteria, separate the ordering line from the kitchen’s clang and hubbub. The placement of butcher paper against the glass acts as an additional barrier and expansive blindfold that deliberately whets the appetite. You can’t see a thing while studying the menu—that is until you reach the register. Next to it a steely little alcove is filled with a dozen plastic containers of frothy mango lassis ($3.75), neon orange and irresistible. And just above them is a serving station lined with garlic naan ($2.99) fresh from the oven, bright green cilantro leaves baked into the puffy, crackling dough. One bite confirms that Zareen’s tender naans are made “Roghni-style”: they aren’t dried out from the heat of a clay oven bake. They’re also perfect vehicles to soak up the ingredients inside of a Kabab Naan Wrap ($9.25). Orders can vary between Chicken Boti or Chicken Shami, Beef Chapli or Beef Gola. Regardless, as long as it’s paired with a freshly baked naan and the spicy sweet green chutney, it’s a winning combination. In keeping with the theme of culinary fusion, the chef has devised a Chicken Tikka Burrito Wrap ($8.50). The flavors are similar to the Kabab Naan Wrap but the texture is not. It was a clever riff on a Mexican classic, but I missed the naan wrapping up those flavors. As a side for those satisfying sandwich wraps, stick with the Aloo Tikki ($6.25) instead of Masala Fries. These potato cutlets were served hot and golden, drizzled with lime, onions and a handful of rough-cut cilantro. With this second restaurant (the first is in Mountain View), Zareen Khan has expanded her empire. On a large chalkboard hanging above diners, three circles overlap to form a symbol. Each circle represents a key tenet of the owner’s intentions: “Authentic recipes, Humanely raised meats, Freshest ingredients.” The center spot simply states: “You are here.” —Jeffrey Edalatpour ZAREEN’S 365 S.
