Rhapsodies Our Voice

Why the Community Media Center ´ POINDEXTER matters BY DESIREE

I

still remember the first time that I stumbled upon community media television and radio, an experience that completely opened up my world. I heard new music that inspired me, found out about community events that intrigued me and watched local public affairs and artistic programming that informed me about what was happening in my community—all programming that I couldn’t find anywhere else. I was, and continue to be, hooked.

In this time of information, community media remains vital as one of the last standing avenues of free speech available to inform, engage and give voice to an area’s diverse communities. No strings attached; everyone’s invited. Media centers such as our local Community Media Center of the North Bay (CMCNB) serve as a centralized media hub providing media services, equipment, training and opportunities to local residents, educators, organizations, government entities and four community cable public, education and government (PEG) channels. With technological advances, community media centers now also serve as a way to promote community events and information locally and internationally. Community media benefits our local community in so many ways. I have seen numerous nonprofits, schools and government departments utilize videos created through the media center to apply and achieve grant funding for programs. I have seen people that have been trained at the CMCNB Youth Summer Video Camp go on to a professional career as a videographer. In my experience with CMCNB and new local community radio station KWTF Radio, I have seen countless individuals and organizations intimidated by media technology receive media literacy and technology training, and gain the expertise and confidence to create their own media to share their stories. We as a community have a lot more amazing stories, information, and ideas to share and we have an amazing place to do it. The future of CMCNB is in jeopardy pending the outcome of the Santa Rosa City Council decisions currently being determined. Let’s work together as a community and find a way to keep our community media outlets and center going, help them grow and allow them to thrive. Desirée Poindexter is a Santa Rosa resident, the admin, HR and PR coordinator for the Community Media Center of the North Bay, and board member of new local community radio station KWTF.net. Open Mic is a weekly op/ed feature in the Bohemian. We welcome your contribution. To have your topical essay of 350 words considered for publication, write openmic@bohemian.com.

Cutting Down Redwoods

The tree removal along 101 at taxpayer expense and the profit of Ghilotti Brothers is complicated and disturbing (“Deadwood Hwy.,” Feb. 6). Does the removal of carbon-sequestering, mature redwood trees justify the increased vehicle traffic and carbon emissions of a wider highway? Tree removal along Highway 101 is not confined to Sonoma County; I witnessed a tree company (who may have been Atlas Tree Service) removing mature eucalyptus trees near Mountain View last fall. It’s true that highway construction brings many benefits to our local area, and money has been set aside to plant trees elsewhere. But the fact remains that large, mature trees are already doing the work of sequestering carbon from our crowded freeways, producing oxygen and abating storm water. We should by all means continue planting trees, especially in our growing suburban areas, but old, mature trees are already doing a lot of work. I cringe when I think about the carbon it takes just to remove them: gas for the tree crews’ lift trucks and chainsaws, and gas to transport the lumber. And all that so we can have a quicker ride to work in the morning in our cars.

Breeding Violence It should be obvious to even the casual student of history that all aggressively expansionist and exploitative nations end up doing unto themselves as they do unto others. Wreaking violence upon others is a toxin, a pollution. “Hate multiplies hate; violence multiplies violence,” said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—and it inevitably infects the population back home. Check out daily life in imperial Rome, 16th-century Spain, Wellington-era England and Stalinist Russia, among others. We suffer from so much violence here in the United

States because our decisionmakers, bent on maximizing wealth and power, have inflicted violence on innocent victims around the world: native North Americans, Africans, Central and South Americans, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Iraqis, Afghans. Small wonder that violence has become the chief hallmark of our public entertainments, or that mass murder is intrinsic to our existence.

Luxury Bowling in Napa Just wanted to make sure you knew that Crush Ultra Lounge at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa also offers bowling, along with drinks and food (“Late Night at the Lanes,” Feb. 6). Crush Ultra Lounge is open to the public daily with its six luxury bowling lanes beginning at 11am daily; it closes at 1am Monday through Thursday, 2am Friday and Saturday, and midnight on Sunday. For more details, see www. themeritageresort.com.

Peace is Possible Many people believe that peace is a pie-in-the-sky idea, that war will always be with us, that violence is a part of our humanness. For centuries, people felt the same way about slavery and the lot of women until a few people spoke and wrote and grew movements of people who all changed their beliefs—our beliefs. Society’s view of violence has also changed radically. My mother, Del Martin, wrote the first American book on domestic violence, Battered Wives. Out of that a movement grew that changed beliefs, attitudes, services and the law. I try to continue her work to eliminate violence through the Peace Alliance and the Campaign for a U.S. Department of Peacebuilding to nurture a culture of peace from the group up and the top down.

Paper THE

THE BIG COME-UP The Black Keys join Macklemore, the Flaming Lips, Furthur, Kings of Leon and many, many others in Napa.

Here It Comes

BottleRock Napa Valley to bring big names, an influx of visitors to Napa Valley BY GABE MELINE

A

huge five-day festival with some of music’s biggest names is coming to Napa in May. BottleRock Napa Valley, running May 8–12 at the Napa Valley Expo, is easily the largest festival in Napa Valley’s history, and organizers are planning for up to 40,000 people to attend.

That crowd estimate is due to the stellar lineup, which includes the Black Keys, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Kings of Leon, the Zac Brown Band, Furthur, Jane’s Addiction, the Flaming Lips, the Black Crowes, Alabama Shakes, Ben Harper, Primus, Dirty Projectors, Bad Religion, the Shins, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Dwight Yoakam, Iron & Wine, Andrew Bird, Brandi Carlile, Best Coast, Rodrigo y Gabriela, the

Wallflowers, Mavis Staples, Justin Townes Earle and many others. Macklemore currently has the No. 1 song on the Billboard charts, “Thrift Shop.” The Black Keys are nominated for an Album of the Year Grammy and will perform as part of this week’s awards broadcast. The vast majority of the festival’s other acts are strong headliners in their own right. “There’s no disguising the fact that it’s mammoth,” says

BottleRock general manager Joseph Lillis. “If this is the success that it looks to be, the whole valley’s going to be packed.” Success does appear imminent for BottleRock. On the day the lineup was announced, the festival’s website crashed. Last Sunday, when a $50-off special was available for three- and four-day passes (normally priced at $299 and $399, respectively), organizers had to cap the promotion after 4,000 fans quickly took advantage of the deal. Thousands more presale passes have been sold, and the general public on-sale date is not until Sunday, Feb. 10. Perhaps most impressive is that BottleRock is an entirely local effort. Unlike most other festivals of its scope, it is unaffiliated with larger promotion companies like Live Nation, Goldenvoice, Another Planet or C3 Presents. Lillis, from Sausalito, grew up in Napa. The talent buying was handled by Sheila Groves-Tracey, from Petaluma, a 26-year veteran of local concert booking. The startup capital is from investors who are nearly all local, and the festival founders are Gabe Meyers and Bob Vogt, both dyed-in-the-wool Napa locals. “My family’s been here since the ’40s,” says Meyers. “My grandma’s still here, my grandfather was a contractor in the Napa Valley for his entire life. My dad’s construction company, Meyers Construction, is celebrating 53 years right now. Bob’s been here since 1981. So yeah, we’re pretty local.” Meyers jokes that the idea of a major festival came to him “when I was in utero at Altamont.” (He was born in August 1970.) Originally, Meyers planned the festival to take advantage of various live music venues around town, like the Napa Valley Opera House, the Uptown Theatre, Silo’s and others, similar to South by Southwest in Austin or Noise Pop in San Francisco. But in friendly talks with larger festival promoter AEG, Meyers explains, “they said, ‘You guys are crazy. You’ve got this incredible 26-acre facility with flushable toilets and power and buildings you can use and great infrastructure. Just use that.’”


‘If this is the success that it looks to be, the whole valley’s going to be packed.’ “The last thing I want is for anyone from Napa County driving to this festival,” says Meyers. Meyers stresses the charitable aspect of the festival, in which 10 percent of the net profit will go to autism causes. (Vogt’s 21-year-old son Will has autism.) Additionally, $6 from every ticket and $1 from every beverage sold will go to various nonprofit community partners, including Hands Across the Valley, Friends of the Napa River, the Napa Land Trust, the Peggy Herman Neuroscience Center and the parks and recreation department. Previously, Meyers’ company WillPower Entertainment had promoted concerts to benefit injured Giants fan Bryan Stow. A comedy lineup is expected to be announced soon, and naturally, food and wine vendors will be a large part of the festival as well. But for music fans, the lineup of big names is the real draw. One fan’s post on BottleRock’s Facebook page summed up the initial reaction: “Is this real?”

The Napa Valley Expo has limited parking, and both Meyers and Lillis say there have been ongoing talks with the city and county to address the music, which will end at 10pm each night, as well as the influx of visitors. Last week, locals were encouraged through a $70-off promotion to walk, carpool or bike to the festival; those 700 locals-only deals were gone within an hour of their announcement. Shuttles will be made available, explains Lillis, likely from sites such as Napa Pipe and perhaps as far away as the city of Davis.

No Laffing Matter In 1959, the city of Petaluma bought a 270-acre ranch on Sonoma Mountain to use as a water supply, and by 1962 had planned to eventually use the vast expanse known as Lafferty Ranch as a public park. But in the early 1990s, an intense campaign by stubborn adjacent landowners was launched, successfully stalling the plan. In short, the access road to the park would have crossed a small part of land owned by someone else, and that someone else didn’t want people around. That someone else was Peter Pfendler. Pfendler famously argued that a 30-foot-square patch of dirt separating the road from the ranch was his, but a suit filed last Thursday by Friends of Lafferty—which includes former Sonoma County Supervisor Bill Kortum—argues otherwise. It names Pfendler’s widow, Kimberly, and the BettmanTavernetti family as defendants, and if successful could open the ranch to public access without costing taxpayers a dime, contends Petaluma city councilmember Mike Healy, who assisted in drawing up the title action. The suit is based on an 1877 property map, but its real key may lie in the absence of Peter Pfendler, who was the most vocal (and wealthy) opponent. (He died in 2007.) After spending over $900,000 in studies and legal costs, the city of Petaluma abandoned the fight against Pfendler in 2002. Now that the city buys most of its water from the county water agency, the land sits unused. The suit seeks no money, merely the right to establish a county road right-of-way, thereby allowing access to the patch of weeds and grass that could be fixed up into a beautiful park. Someday.—Nicolas Grizzle

THE DREAM OF THE 1890S IS N CHOCOLATE It’s no surprise that

bar chocolate, but even small artisa trying to create entriely homemade

Pure Imagination Hey, all you DIY types—thinking of making your own chocolate this Valentine’s Day? Think again BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

M

ost people don’t recognize cocoa in its unprocessed form. The pulp-covered beans resemble chitlins more than chocolate, and the taste is just as off-putting. But what if you let them ferment in that pulp for a week or so, wash and roast the beans, crack the husks and grind the tiny nibs until they release the cocoa butter? Add superfine sugar and temper

the chocolate carefully with a molcajete and then a marble slab, and let it set for a few more hours? Bam! The resulting gloppy mess will be the most unnecessarily labor-intensive love gift your sweetheart will never really appreciate. “Very few people go from bean to chocolate,” says Lynn Wong, owner of Viva Cocolat in Petaluma, of making one’s own chocolate. “Those who do tend to stay with the bar.” This is good advice for those with the DIY mindset. Craft beer and homemade pickles are one

thing, but homemade chocolate is not the best idea. Making chocolate isn’t easy. Even with the right equipment, patience and skill, there are too many things that can go wrong. Starting with someone else’s chocolate seems to be the best approach. Wong makes a few of the confections in her shop, but mostly sticks to artisans like Barlovento from Oakland or Moonstruck from Washington. It’s not just about sinful decadence these days, she says. There’s a trend toward savory sweets with additions like cardamom, fennel and even

cheese. “Now they’re getting more adventurous with it,” she says. Speaking of adventurous, how about a nip slip? The most popular item at Gandolf’s Fine Chocolate is the Nipple of Venus, says Guy Daniels, proprietor of the Santa Rosa–based business. Daniels creates truffles using both Belgian and American chocolate, and suggests home chocolatiers might be able to create acceptable goodies with enough patience. “Some things can come out really well. It just depends on timing, skill and luck,” seays the 13-year chocolate veteran. Even See’s doesn’t mess with cocoa beans—and the San Francisco company sticks to a roster of traditional favorites. “See’s has a deep-rooted history, and they’ve been making their candies the same way for the past 90 years,” says spokeswoman Christina Wong. “See’s is not about following trends.” The company gets its chocolate from Guittard Chocolate of Burlingame, and in true world-of-pure-imagination fashion, it’s pumped in from a tanker truck into the See’s factory in liquid form. “I was an amateur chocolatier,” says David Gambill, owner of Sonoma Chocolatiers. Thirty years have passed since starting the practice, he says, and “looking back on what I made then and what I make now, I wouldn’t bother eating what I made then.” Putting the whole “grow your own” theory to rest, Gambill explains the difference between chocolate and chocolates. “Pastry chefs don’t make their own flour,” he says. “Chocolatiers don’t make their own chocolate.” The skill sets required for the two facets are simply too different, and to make a good chocolate requires the genetic disposition of a supertaster. “I don’t encourage anyone to try to make chocolate at home from their own roasted cocoa beans,” says Gambill. Bottom line: chocolate is difficult to make, and it’s not going to be great (or even good, probably) the first few attempts. Just buy the damn chocolate.

San Francisco Beer Week returns this Friday, Feb. 8. That â&#x20AC;&#x153;San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;? part is a bit of a misnomer, as nearly one-third of those events will be occurring outside of the City. And the â&#x20AC;&#x153;weekâ&#x20AC;? part is a bit iffy as well, as this week lasts 10 glorious days. Rest assured, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;beerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; part remains spot on. For fellow imbibers looking to celebrate locally, there are a number of SF Beer Week events planned for the North Bay this year. Highlights begin with the Firestone Walker beer dinner (featuring acclaimed brewmaster Matt Brynildson) at Novatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hopmonk Tavern on Sunday, Feb. 10 ($65). Barley & Hops Tavern in Occidental offers a specially paired menu with Moonlight Brewing on Feb. 14 ($25), while newly opened Beltane Brewing in Novato releases its Mon Coeur Sauvage chocolate ale with raspberries that same day. (The latter is also a useful reminder not to forget Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day.) And the Black and White Beer Ball ($37â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$58), a semi-formal benefit headed by Ales for Autism, is held on Friday, Feb. 15, at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building. The Tap Room at Whole Foods Market in Coddingtown hosts a number of events throughout the â&#x20AC;&#x153;weekâ&#x20AC;? as well, releasing barrel-aged and sour beers from their cellar, hosting sensory training courses, and featuring a New Belgium Pint Night on Feb. 13.

Iron Horse Vineyards Happy New Year, you snake BY JAMES KNIGHT

O

verheard: One summer afternoon, at a winery several miles from here, two couples are enjoying wine under a canopy of leaves. One is younger, the other, parental. They’re talking about bubbles. “Then there’s the ‘China bubble,’” the elder man continues, derisively. “Oh, right,” the presumed son-in-law snorts knowingly, eagerly. “The China bubble.”

In wine as in other business, the world’s second largest economy continues to be the object both of big claims and pithy pooh-poohing. Meanwhile, Iron Horse Vineyards have released some China bubbles of their own—whether to hedge their bets, stay in the game or just celebrate the Year of the Snake. Some facts about snake: the boar is your enemy, the cock and ox are friends. The Chinese Cuvée debuted in the Year of the Horse, natch. Only the third iteration, the current release dates from 2004, around the time we last dropped in here. Back then, the “tasting room” was just a warped slap of oak resting on a couple of barrels; things have changed. There’s a shed roof. More barrels. Outdoor heaters. It’s gotten so downright comfy that an old farm cat now creeps, squinting and arthritic, out of the vineyard at 3:30pm daily to make herself at home. In other words, it’s the same old rustic wine shed, and that is what’s so special about it. That, and top-notch sparkling, no fooling around. The 2004 Chinese Cuvée ($98), discounted throughout February, is a pale 50/50 blend with austere aromas, elegant froth and a crisp finish that says “Brut.” Dialed down a bit since the original blend was created for the 1986 showdown of Gipper vs. Gorby, the 2008 Russian Cuvée ($40) has a golden raisin character, the finish being otherwise nearly as brisk as the Reykjavik wind. Today’s crowd-pleaser is the 2008 Winter’s Cuvée ($50). Spiked with a half-mil of Pinot Noir brandy in the dosage, it’s Squirrel Nutkin-nutty and just slightly on the sweet side. The pale copperhued 2008 Wedding Cuvée ($38) fills the mouth with a riot of fine bubbles, leaping up as if it can’t wait for the toast. But it’s the 2007 Ocean Reserve Blanc de Blancs ($40) for me, with its enchanting, yeasty-floral aroma like God’s own fresh-baked shortbread, lean, grapefruit-spritzer of a finish, and 10 percent donation to support sustainable fisheries. Sparklers like these drive people to boldness. “I’ve seen people drop on one knee in the driveway,” says tasting room manager Lisa Macek, “and propose in front of a crowd.” Listen up snake: beware of boar. Iron Horse Vineyards, 9786 Ross Station Road, Sebastopol. Open daily, 10am–4:30pm. Tasting fee, $15–$20. 707.887.1507.

With a total of 16 real-life dates gone awry, submitted by readers, we here at the Bohemian have been gifted with sad anecdotes of Febreze-in-the-face spraying; meeting for the first time on an airport tarmac in a wedding dress; asking one’s daughter to call mid-date with an “emergency”; being surrounded by rowdy drunk sports fans on a bus and going to a Tommy Castro show.

Leaving Las Vegas BY DANI BURLISON

About three months into a short-lived relationship, I made the mistake of going on an extended date of sorts: traveling to his sister’s wedding with him. In Las Vegas. In July. Things were already a little shaky with Mr. Anger Issues, in part because he constantly suggested I change careers (to work for him) and that maybe I give up work altogether in order to make him some babies. I made it clear that I love my career and that as much as I love the two children I already have, there was no way in hell I was having any more children. Especially when Mr. Anger Issues was unsure about whether or not he loved me (he once said I had too much student loan debt for him to fall in love with me). So we’re in Vegas. Sweating and drunk from the sidewalk mojitos we’re pounding to fight the midJuly heat and the awkwardness that arose when his family members began asking about any potential wedding plans we were making (remember: three-month relationship). We push our way to the air-conditioned bar in our hotel when one of my kids calls me. Mr. Anger Issues tells me how

much he likes her and how much he wants kids of his own. “Yeah, I’m not having any more kids,” I remind him. “We’re really going to fucking talk about this right now? Right fucking here, goddammit?” I look at the pitcher of margaritas in front of us, take a huge, brain-freezing gulp and quietly ask him for the hotel key. “If you leave me alone in this bar right now I will fucking hate you forever,” he scowls. I drink more, start a conversation with the drunk Scottish construction worker who has taken his place next to me at the bar and eventually return to the room with Mr. Anger Issues, who stays up all night watching recaps of the Tour de France on TV. He doesn’t speak to me the next morning and, nervous about our flight home, I search for the Xanax in my bag. As we pull into the airport, I begin sweating and run to the restroom vomiting, realizing too late that I have accidentally taken his pain medication. Turns out I’m allergic to Vicodin. Two hours of crying and dryheaving later, I emerge from the restroom. He glares at me and offers this: “Well, I don’t want kids with you anyway. Look at yourself, you’re like a crackhead prostitute.”

distraction from the heartbreak of having pushed away my rare and exquisite beloved for pushing me away after every deep connection one too many times, cursing his resistance to what he so badly wanted and what his soul had kept pushing him back to me for. I was totally unprepared to discover that the world may actually be full of aware, confident, accomplished, emotionally articulate and possibly sexually masterful men who can’t find any women who match their evolvement. Joe No. 1 had replied with a three-page, single-spaced letter describing how an anguished childhood birthed his deepest spiritual questions and blueprint for ideal love. He drove one and a half hours and greeted me with a gift of broccoli. I said, “Oh, do you have a garden?” He said no. During a walk, I was impressed by his first-date audacity to tell me that my shadow made me look like a Klingon. It was obvious, though, that he had sent a picture from 10 years earlier. I guess a shamelessly exposed interior doesn’t automatically imply an inhibition-free exterior. Back indoors, musty nochemistry permeated the air and tales of his 10-year heroin isolation evaporated any remaining cosmic edge I’d optimistically anticipated. To punctuate with finality, instead of being treated to a “soulful and Ray Charles–ish” piano performance, I had to endure torturous unfunky whining that made me struggle to keep my life force from draining as oxygen tried to flee the room. Upon leaving, with wide eyes and effervescence, he professed how totally worthwhile it had been to make the long drive—but wasn’t sure when he’d ever do it again. This farewell was a relief but left the sour task of trying to reconcile the hard evidence for rare quality I had poofed against the harsh reality that materialized. Same with Joes No. 2 and 3. Turns out Joe-poofing isn’t that easy.

A Classy Joint BY PETER DANOVICH

San Francisco, 1976. Smoking marijuana in the street was in vogue, and transplanted females declared their independent, feminine, we-are-women voices. San Francisco was a sexual cookie jar with ready and willing beautiful women. Within five minutes of conversation, it was the norm that the f-bomb would flower as a noun, pronoun and adjective while offering a joint. Their modus operandi was “why wait!” Wining and dining was not necessary. You were their hook-up selection for the night. Why wait, indeed. I left a $70,000-a-year job in Chicago, came to San Francisco without a job, let my hair grow out to a naturally curly afro and added a mustache. Quite a new look. I can best summarize my initial San Francisco beginnings as someone always offering me a drink, marijuana, hashish, taking their clothes off, or my looking for a parking place.

and hair stylist, Anita, worked at I. Magnin and cut my hair every two months. My “worst date” had its origin at the I. Magnin boutique. Anita’s co-worker, an absolutely gorgeous, tall brunette from Ohio named Denise, shared an immediate attraction with me, leading to our one and only date. Denise lived in the Pacific Heights area. After parking my car, I stepped in dog shit. Nice beginning. Denise looked ravishing and greeted me with a welcoming kiss. Off to dinner at my favorite restaurant, Vintner’s on Union Street. We smoked a joint before going in. Normally, smoking a joint leads to enhanced appetites and a loosening of inhibitions with free-flowing conversation. Interspersed, I constantly visualized Denise naked in my bed. I couldn’t wait. I was a “happy stoner,” the type whose gaps in conversation retention were quite frequent, accompanied by that dopey stoned look. Denise was the opposite. The joint didn’t affect her in the least as she talked on and on in all seriousness. My brain cells couldn’t keep up. Being so stoned led her to verbally dress me down multiple times during dinner. “Peter, do you understand what I’m talking about?” “Denise, your conversation is deep and wordy, and by the time you finish, I’ve only retained the last part of what you just said. I’m sorry.” There was a deep, cold chill in the air after that. Conversation was at a standstill. Maybe she’d forget the dinner and share my thoughts of saving the date by having sex at my apartment. Not a chance. She walked alone to her apartment without a “Good night.” It was my worst date. If Denise was writing her story, it would mirror mine—her worst date ever. I’ve completely forgotten Denise’s looks, our dinner and conversation, but, for some reason, I’ve never forgotten that smell of dog shit on the sole of my shoe.

Jumping Back In A wishful widow surveys the dating scene BY HELEN PACHYNSKI

aving just watched an old episode of Sex & the City, I am feeling very Carrie Bradshaw as I sit at my computer. But there ends the comparison. I do not have a body and a wardrobe like hers, indeed, nor her

talent at writing. Like her, however, I am searching for a mate that will love me and complement me. Why, at the age of 67, am I searching? Almost four years ago, my husband died of cancer. He was 69 years old; we’d been married 41 years. I am not looking to replace him; I am wise enough

to know that will never happen. And I have not made the mistake of putting him on a pedestal with the belief that he was perfect. But I yearn for the companionship, the quick glance or smile, all those little nuances that happen between a couple. “Meal for one” is a low point in my day. And in my aloneness, I turned to standup comedy and found that it alleviated

I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go the route of online dating as the experiences of several single girlfriends mortiďŹ ed me. It took a good friend to nudge me, encourage me and assure me that I was ready for that next step.

Like the old saying goes, they are looking for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nurse and a purse.â&#x20AC;? In fact, some of them are downright desperate. I had one man in his mid-70s ask me if I could cook! He said he was looking for a domestic partner. I told him he should just look for a domestic, period! Well, I continue to searchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and stay busy. I recently started tango lessons. And to my surpriseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Latin in meâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I love the music and the movements.

Not So OK, Cupid In a small town, online dating can sting in big ways BY RACHEL DOVEY

T

o its millions of users, OkCupid might seem like the hip younger sibling to online dating sites like eHarmony or Match.com. The free site will welcome you with an illustration of a woman whose feathered bangs and chic boots connote certain keywords—urbane, maybe. Worldly. She’s less Michael Bay and more Michael Cera, less Axe body spray and more post-yoga patchouli musk. She looks mellow— like she might just make an exception for you.

And then there are the fun surveys, which one local woman likens to Cosmo quizzes. What’s your sign, and how important is astrology to you? Would you rather be normal or weird? Would you date someone who does drugs, and, if so, would you prefer only “soft stuff like marijuana?” But what if the place you live isn’t exactly urbane? Or worldly? What if it’s Sonoma County, and the guy you’re meeting online is, say, the same guy two of your friends have already dated? “The pool is just so small,” says Louise. (Note: for the sake of the interviewees, all names in this piece have all been changed.) The Santa Rosa resident describes selecting an age range from 28 to 40 and looking for men within 25 miles. The search turned up eight pages of eligible guys. “And then I selected just one age, 37, and typed in San Francisco,” she says. “There were 50 pages just of 37-year-olds.” “I don’t want to date my friends’ ex-husbands,” says Margot, another Santa Rosa single girl,

who says she’s gone out with people mainly down in the city and in the East Bay to avoid such awkward situations. Which can get creepy fast. “You can ‘wink’ at people on there,” says a third Santa Rosa dweller, Kate. “It’s like poking people on Facebook. To have some guy who’s dating a friend of mine and supposedly in a committed relationship winking at me on OkCupid just makes me feel like I need to go take a shower.” Local users describe the site in language similar to any encounter filtered through a two-dimensional screen, where user profiles can be edited to reflect a reality that in actuality might not be so real. “The men that I’ve connected with, they’re all rebounding or heartbroken and just want a quick fix with the woman with the hottest pictures up,” says Kate. “It’s like a fantasy; they want to fill that loneliness with some kind of attention.” In Louise’s experience, this casual atmosphere was a positive at first. She’d recently gotten out of a 19-year relationship herself, and had little experience with dating. “I basically didn’t wait for anyone to approach me,” she says. “I’d find five to eight people who looked interesting and write them a quick note. I was just open about it.” But eventually, the then-39-yearold started to notice a bizarre pattern. It happened when she was messaging a 40-year-old man who lived locally. “I saw something that I see all the time, but it was the first time I noticed it,” she recalls. “At the very bottom of his page it said [the age range] he was looking for: 18–25.” “When you’re older and you’re online, it tends to not go your way, because men your own age tend to look for younger women,” Margot, 42, agrees. “If I’m out in the real world, I’ll

distraction, but I understood what my friends had been saying about it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before, I had just been having fun. But the second time, I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put myself out there. I just got stomped on.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scary to get disappointed so many times.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a negative experience with it,â&#x20AC;? says Margot, who was only on the site for roughly a week. She had one date, she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kind of realized that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really feel like dating online. It felt like a lot of work. After you go on the date, then you have to think about, well, are they going to call me, or is this going to turn into a relationship?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you just want to have fun, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking for Mr. Right and the clock isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ticking and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really open-minded, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to use online dating,â&#x20AC;? says Louise. But after several years in the real dating world, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fun anymore.â&#x20AC;?

get hit on by guys my own age and guys younger than me, somewhat frequently. I seem to get attention. But online thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different set of qualiďŹ cations.â&#x20AC;? And according to the three women, this disconnect between reality and internet fantasyland can get much, much stranger. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the goth guy who likes to walk women around town on leashes. The guy whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constantly changing the city where he supposedly lives. And then there was Kateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend, who created a fake OkCupid account while they were still in a relationship and secretly tried to get her to cheat on him with . . . his online self. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single section in there was catered speciďŹ cally to my proďŹ le,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like [he wrote about] this obscure East Bay band, Our Lady of the Highway, which hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played together for, like, 10 years. He sent me four messages within a 12-hour period, two really late at night and two really early in the morning, begging me to contact him.â&#x20AC;? Two months later, she says, he admitted what she already knewâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; that it was him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That kind of spooked me,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made me wary, like anybody can have an OkCupid account. It really freaks me out that someone could just be out there to fuck with you.â&#x20AC;? Louise used the site for six to eight monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;dated someone for a month, someone else for two monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then met a guy in real life. That lasted a year, and then she went back to the site. Her second time on OkCupidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; postâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;difficult breakupâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was wildly different than her ďŹ rst, and she only used it for 10 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kind of wanted some

Ramble at Terrapin Q: What’s a ramble? A: It’s essentially a one-night stand without the guilt. Midnight rambles were originally started by Levon Helm of the Band, held at Helm’s studio known as “the Barn.” Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead keeps Helm’s tradition of rambles alive at Terrapin Crossroads, where you can catch him this week playing alongside Jackie Greene, Neal Casal, Tony Leone and Adam MacDougall.

Endless Pause MTC conquers ‘Waiting for Godot’ BY DAVID TEMPLETON

N

othing happens. Nobody comes. Nobody goes. It’s awful!” When Samuel Beckett gave those words to a character in his 1952 play Waiting for Godot, he surely realized that they would mirror the thoughts of much of the audience. That’s one of the delights of watching Godot, recognizing that its author was thinking of the audience with each and every unconventional line: teasing them, taunting them, challenging them— but also frequently delighting them. Waiting for Godot, after all, is a comedy. The irony of those lines, early in the script, is as funny as the play itself. In an immaculate, beautifully stylized new staging now running at the Marin Theatre Company, director Jasson Minadakis works wonders, striking the perfect balance

‘Waiting for Godot’ runs Tuesday– Sunday through Feb. 17 at Marin Theatre Company. 397 Miller Ave., Mill Valley. Showtimes vary. $36–$57. 415.388.5208.

Stage

between laughter and heartache. On an empty road with little more than a rock and a tree to gaze at, two disheveled, Bowler-hatted friends, Estragon and Vladimir, await the imminent arrival of someone named Godot. It is not clear how long they’ve been waiting for Godot, or what will happen once Godot arrives. But until he does, their lives, such as they are, are on hold. The rich, detailed dialogue, like the world’s longest “Who’s on First?” routine, is perfectly paced by Minadakis, whose committed cast work wonders with the twisty text. An excellent Mark Bedard, acclaimed for his work with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, plays Vladimir as a man whose brain is always at work—even though his bladder is not. Adopting a constant feet-to-the-floor shuffle, Bedard never lets us forget the physical discomfort of his character. As Estragon, Mark Anderson Phillips is wonderful, bringing a childlike innocence to his role, alternating between bright flashes of optimism (“Let’s go!” he brightly suggests, often) and deep despair at realizing that he must continue to wait and wait and wait. The imperious Pozzo (a mesmerizing James Carpenter) and his worldweary servant Lucky (Ben Johnson, astonishing), help to break the monotony of Estragon and Vladimir’s long day. But even they appear to be trapped in a cycle of endless repetition. Is it all a metaphor for life? A theatrical Rorschach test? A paradoxical parody of the absurdities of existence? Of course. But it’s also the simple story of two longtime friends questioning whether they’d be better off apart than together, ultimately recognizing that tiny everyday surprises— those little occurrences that make today different from yesterday— are what make it possible to face our tomorrows, and that facing them together might be better than facing them alone.

This week, inveterate Oscarpoolers get a chance to see what’s in the short film categories in three programs (Best Animated, Best Documentary and Best Live Action). Of the Live Action short nominees, a favorite is the well-received Asad, a story of Somali refugees, filmed by an American on the coast of South Africa using refugees from Somalia as non-pro actors. Another contender is Buzkashi Boys, about the national sport of Afghanistan, a dangerous form of polo using a dead goat as a ball.

A possible victor in the Best Documentary short category is the MTV-produced Inocente, a story of a homeless girl who hasn’t allowed the lack of an address to crush her spirits. As usual, this category is a roundup of upbeat fare about death and serious illness. Mondays with Racine is a short documentary about a beauty salon that gives free makeovers to chemotherapy patients. The animation category is, as usual, very strong, but the shooin for the Oscar is Paperman, a wordless, Disney-made romance set in a 1955 New York cityscape, in which the only spot of color is a lipstick kiss. I call it a shoe-in not just because it’s breathtaking, which it is, but because it was heavily seen last year. Paperman was shown before screenings of the mega-popular Wreck It Ralph; its best-known rival, The Longest Daycare, starring TV suckling Maggie Simpson, was billed with Ice Age: Continental Drift. The lesser-known animated shorts are stunning. Fresh Guacamole is a stop-motion animated parody of a cooking video, by the ever-ingenious PES. PES’ work plays with the most rare visual puns, but it’s more than just cold ingenuity at play. Watching his shorts, we relearn, with some shock, one of the first lessons of childhood: two things that are shaped alike aren’t the same. The British Head Over Heels is the saddest and wisest of the show, a short of great imagination regarding a bitter middleaged couple separated by an immemorial quarrel. They’ve coped by giving each other halves of the house they share. But it’s not physically possible, except in Escherland, to split up a house they way they have done. Last and least of the five, Adam and Dog by Minkyu Lee is a must for dog lovers. This animator took on a tough topic, the fall of man. But it’s odd how Paperman successfully goes West-East (Billy Wilder meets Ozu) when the opposing Miyazaki/CalArts influences seen here don’t mesh with the same flawlessness. The 2013 Oscar Nomintated Short Films, presented in three programs, is in theaters now.

lectronic dance records were once sold on vinyl. Back then, â&#x20AC;&#x153;house headsâ&#x20AC;? could explore everything from deep tribal bass to lounge house and Eurotrance on open turntables tied to giant headphones at record stores. If you remember the Santa Rosa store Harmonics or Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homebase, you remember the days.

The landscape has changed dramatically since the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s rave scene, but the rhythm continues to seduce. Sebastopol native Patrick Malone has spent 15 years cultivating his knowledge of electronic music. From raver to promoter to talent buyer, Malone is a one-man party planner, and a damn good one at that. A trained audio engineer who performs under the moniker DJ Malarkey, Malone is the founder

Music

of Juke Joint, the Thursday-night showcase that put Sebastopol on the electronic music map. For more than a decade, Malone has been a ďŹ xture at what is now known as the Hopmonk Tavern, from its days as the Powerhouse and the Sebastopol Brewing Company. He drove U-Haul trailers into Santa Rosa just to borrow the equipment capable of producing the sound needed for electronic shows. When the brewery was bought by Dean Biersch, the newly inaugurated Hopmonk Tavern handed Malone the role of talent buyer in 2008, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Abbeyâ&#x20AC;? has since become his kingdom of noise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a dream come true for someone like me, in my mid20s,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to have someone say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a budget, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put in a serious, real-deal sound system.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Changing up formats, too, has had a major impact. Malone began experimenting with new genres, incorporating funk and break beats, hip-hop and Latin to create palatability for the small-town vibe. Over the years, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s added a number of cultural experiments, from the risquĂŠ burlesque variety show Cabaret de Caliente to live Edwardian Gypsy bands. The dĂŠcor, too, transforms with each weekly event. His 12 consecutive years at Burning Man have leant a unique habitat hardly matched outside the City. Most of all, in keeping with Juke Jointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition of top-notch electronica, Malone continues to host some of the biggest international DJs. (Last month in the 200-capacity room, he booked Bonobo, who headlines the WarďŹ eld, the San Francisco venue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over 10 times Hopmonkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size, in May.) Now, six years later and bringing back their ďŹ rst-ever guest, Juke Joint presents genre-bending genius J Boogie on Feb. 7 for a night of indulgence and dance. Bonus: be there for a major announcement guaranteed to stir up the electronic music scene for good.

Zodiac Death Valley get raw at Healdsburg steakhouse The live-music scene at steakhouses doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately bring to mind hot new bands. Maybe a cheesy lounge-lizard-type crooner or some jazz trio playing in the background while diners pass the gravy. But now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a steakhouse in Healdsburg thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got some really sizzling, juicy cuts of music. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Frank and Ernieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and S.F. psych-rockers Zodiac Death Valley are there this week. These guys are more like something heard at the Bottom of the Hill after midnight rather than after dinner in Healdsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine-dining scene. A little bit of funk, a little â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s bravado and a good groove make up most of this bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound, brought to life with catchy piano and guitar hooks; imagine a larger, more expansive version of the retro sound that the Black Keys and Jack White hath wrought. How did Healdsburg get a nightlife? Chalk it up to longtime local K. C. Mosso, who for years has tirelessly vaulted vibrancy and volume into the sleepy after-hours of his hometown, from theaters to restaurants to dive bars. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to Frank and Ernieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for giving him another platform. Zodiac Death Valley and the great HugeLarge play Saturday, Feb. 9, at Frank and Ernieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. 9 Mitchell Lane, Healdsburg. 10:30pm. $5. 707.433.2147.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nicolas Grizzle

Self-Styled Selznick ‘Moonlight’ a fun riff on ‘Gone with the Wind’ Ron Hutchinson’s clever 2004 comedy Moonlight and Magnolias takes a Hollywood footnote and expands it into inspired intellectual slapstick. Directed by Charles Siebert and presented by the Sixth Street Playhouse, the play takes place inside the office of legendary film producer David O. Selznick (a blustering Dodds Delzell, above). Three weeks into production of Gone with the Wind, Selznick has fired his director, thrown out the script and kidnapped a new team of collaborators. Director Victor Flemming (Paul Huberty, adopting a kind of crass, flamboyant cynicism) is locked in the office with reluctant screenwriter Ben Hecht (an appropriately world-weary Adam Syd), and given five days to come up with a new script for Margaret Mitchell’s 1,100-word novel—which Hecht has never read. That much is basically true. What actually took place in that office over those five furious days was probably not what happens in the play, with Selznick and Flemming acting out the novel, as an increasingly delirious Hecht taps at his typewriter. But historical accuracy matters not—the banter and debate, well-played by this seasoned trio of actors, makes for an illuminating, funny clash of creative minds. Moonlight and Magnolias runs Thursday– Sunday through Feb. 17 at Sixth Street Playhouse. 52 W. Sixth St., Santa Rosa. Thursday–Saturday at 8pm; 2pm matinees on Sundays. $15–$25. 707.523.4185.—David Templeton

Astrology

FREE WILL BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of January 30

We mistakenly printed the Free Will Astrology column for February 6 last week. This is the column that should have published. We’ll be back on track next week.

ARIES (March 21–April 19):

Wageni ni baraka is a Swahili proverb that means “guests are a blessing.” That’s not always true, of course. Sometimes guests can be a boring inconvenience or a messy burden. But for you in the coming weeks, Aries, I’m guessing the proverb will be 98 percent correct. The souls who come calling are likely to bestow unusually fine benefits. They may provide useful clues or missing links you’ve been searching for. They might inspire you to see things about yourself that you really need to know, and they might even give you shiny new playthings. Open your mind and heart to the unexpected blessings.

TAURUS (April 20–May 20)

“I feel my fate in what I cannot fear,” said Theodore Roethke in his poem “The Waking.” I invite you to try out that perspective, Taurus. In other words, learn more about your destiny by doing what makes you feel brave. Head in the direction of adventures that clear your mind of its clutter and mobilize your gutsy brilliance. Put your trust in dreams that inspire you to sweep aside distracting worries.

from an 11-year-old, learned the lindy hop, saw a rainbow over the ocean, had thrift store clothes stolen out of my car by a homeless man, made a magic protection amulet out of a piece of cardboard, was fed quinoa soup by the buffest 50-year-old South African woman I’ve ever met, bowed to a room full of applause and watched two of my favorite men slow dance together to Josephine Baker singing in French.” I suspect that you Libras will be having days like that in the coming week: packed with poetic adventures. Are you ready to handle more than the usual amount of stimulation and excitement?

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21) Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States, called himself a Christian. But he also acknowledged that there weren’t any other Christians like him. He said he belonged to a sect consisting of one person—himself. While he admired the teachings of Jesus Christ, he had no use for the supernatural aspects of the stories told in the New Testament. So he created his own version of the Bible, using only those parts he agreed with. Now would be an excellent time for you to be inspired by Jefferson’s approach, Scorpio. Is there a set of ideas that appeals to you in some ways but not in others? Tailor it to your own special needs. Make it your own. Become a sect of one.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) It’s the First Annual Blemish Appreciation Week—for Geminis only. One of the best ways to observe this holiday is to not just tolerate the flaws and foibles of other people, but to also understand them and forgive them. Another excellent way to celebrate is to do the same for your own flaws and foibles—applaud them for the interesting trouble they’ve caused and the rousing lessons they’ve taught. I may be joking a little about this, but I’m mostly serious. Be creative and uninhibited as you have fun with the human imperfections that normally drive you crazy.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

CANCER (June 21–July 22)

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) “Most humans have an absolute and infinite capacity for taking things for granted,” said Aldous Huxley. If that’s true, Capricorn, it’s important that you NOT act like a normal human in the next few weeks. Taking things for granted would be a laziness you can’t afford to indulge. In fact, I think you should renew your passion for and commitment to all your familiar pleasures and fundamental supports. Are you fully aware of the everyday miracles that allow you to thrive? Express your appreciation for the sources that nourish you so reliably.

When I turn my psychic vision in your direction, I see scenes of heavy rain and rising water, maybe even a flood. I’m pretty sure this has a metaphorical rather than literal significance. It probably means you will be inundated with more feelings than you’ve experienced in a while. Not bad or out-of-control feelings—just deep and enigmatic and brimming with nuance. How to respond? First, announce to the universe that you will be glad and grateful to accept this deluge. Second, go with the flow, not against it. Third, promise yourself not to come to premature conclusions about the meaning of these feelings; let them evolve.

LEO (July 23–August 22) “I want to know more about you” may be the most potent sentence you can utter in the coming week. If spoken with sincere curiosity, it will awaken dormant synergies. It will disarm people who might otherwise become adversaries. It will make you smarter and work as a magic spell that gives you access to useful information you wouldn’t be able to crack open with any other method. To begin the process of imbuing your subconscious mind with its incantatory power, say “I want to know more about you” aloud 10 times right now. VIRGO (August 23–September 22)

My hotel was nice, but the neighborhood where it was located seemed sketchy. As I returned to my room after a jaunt to the convenience store, I received inquiries from two colorfully dressed hookers whose sales pitches were enticingly lyrical. I also passed a lively man who proposed that I purchase some of his top-grade meth, crack or heroin. I thanked them all for their thoughtful invitations but said I wasn’t in the mood. Then I slipped back into my hotel room to dine on my strawberry smoothie and blueberry muffin as I watched HBO. My experience could have something in common with your immediate future, Virgo. I suspect you may be tempted with offers that seem exotic and adventurous but are not really that good for you. Stick to the healthy basics, please.

LIBRA (September 23–October 22)

A West Coast DJ named Shakti Bliss wrote a remarkable status update on her Facebook page. Here’s an edited excerpt: “In the past 24 hours, I did yoga in a bathtub, hauled furniture by myself in the rain, got expert dating advice

“Everyone is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day,” said writer Elbert Hubbard. “Wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.” Judging from my personal experience, I’d say that five minutes is a lowball figure. My own daily rate is rarely less than half an hour. But the good news, as far as you’re concerned, Sagittarius, is that in the coming weeks you might have many days when you’re not a damn fool for even five seconds. In fact, you may break your all-time records for levels of wild, pure wisdom. Make constructive use of your enhanced intelligence!

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Poet Jacob Nibengenesabe was a member of the Swampy Cree, a First Nation tribe in Canada. He wrote shamanic poems from the point of view of a magical trickster who could change himself into various creatures. In one poem, the shapeshifter talked about how important it is to be definite about what he wanted. “There was a storm once,” he said. “That’s when I wished myself / to be a turtle / but I meant on land! / The one that carries a hard tent / on his back. / I didn’t want to be floating!” By the end of the poem, the shapeshifter concluded, “I’ve got to wish things exactly! / That’s the way it is / from now on.” I hope that will be the way it is from now on for you, too, Aquarius. Visualize your desires in intricate, exact detail. For example, if you want to be a bird for a while, specify what kind. PISCES (February 19–March 20)

As you sleep, you have at least a thousand dreams every year. But if you’re typical, you may recall only a few of them. Doesn’t that bother you? To be so ignorant of the stories your subconscious mind works so hard to craft? To be out of touch with what the Iroquois call “the secret wishes of your soul”? Now is an excellent time to develop a stronger relationship with your dreams, Pisces. It’s high time to explore the deeper strata of your life’s big mysteries.
