Rogue Test Razed Editor: On Monday, June 17, I accompanied my husband Uri and some friends out to the Manila dunes. As an avid beachcomber and photographer, I’ve been asked to document the progress of the dune rebuilding experiment (“Rogue Dune Experiment,” June 20). This simple and unobtrusive procedure is successfully being used on the East Coast, which is still reeling from the effects of Superstorm Sandy. On Sunday, June 23, we hiked out to the test site and were shocked to find that someone had pulled up the wooden slats that had been positioned in the dunes to
catch blowing sand. Really? Is this experiment so threatening that someone has to vandalize it? After seeing the effects of the beach grass pulling, and the moving dunes swallowing up dune forests and wetlands, I applaud the bold and simple effort being made to regain the dunes that protect our coastline and the infrastructure behind it. Beach grass stabilizes the dunes, helping them grow higher and protect the homes, schools, roads, water and power lines just inland from the shore. It has also created wetlands and forests behind those dunes, a unique environment I enjoy walking in. The beach grass pullers want to see the dunes change shape and migrate inland, hoping to increase habitat for threatened bird and plant species. But who is monitoring the dune wetlands and forests, and the species living there now threatened by moving sand? I hope these two differing viewpoints can reach an agreement beneficial to both the people and the wildlife living behind the dunes. In the meantime, let’s please leave the wooden slats in place, and watch and learn something in the process. Chris Pratt, Arcata

More Supes Disputes
Editor: We are happy to agree with Publisher Judy Hodgson’s statement: “Boards of Supervisors come and go. Public policy is made and remade.” We were less impressed with the remaining portion of your editorial (Publisher, June 13). We supported four of the five members duly elected to the current board, and we continue to support them. You are so angered at some straw vote taken in general plan deliberations — yet such refining/revising is the prerogative of every board. We don’t see a need to become so incensed with a board trying to make some sense out of a 12-year draft general plan preparation exercise. This is precisely
the time language negotiations get on the table so that the document can be adopted. Getting a general plan adopted after so much public involvement is going to be a dance where no group will get all it wants. We hope this doesn’t come as a shock to you, but it’s a political process. We support your idea of people discussing issues and thereby becoming more involved. We dislike the hit-piece style of how you represent your perspectives as fact and irreversible gospel, and vilifying others while trying to round up support for your goals. The board meeting we saw had about 40 people speak, and all of them were respectful in providing their testimony. We wish the Journal had been respectful as well. Lora and Joel Canzoneri, Arcata Editor: Having reviewed all the letters, and your editorial of the past two weeks about the recent action by the Board of Supervisors in regard to the General Plan, I thought I would weigh in on the subject. Although it’s like blowing into the wind in your publication, I have to fully agree with Jessica Bittner’s letter supporting the changes the board made. There were reasons why the voters elected the current board, and the General Plan mess is one of them. To infer that these board members are in the bag, or incompetent, is uncalled for mudslinging. I believe that what they did was long overdue and had been fully vetted in the many public hearings in the past, ergo no more public whining was necessary. Now, enough talk, let’s get on with the update! Gerald Spellenberg, McKinleyville Editor: It was shocking to see the disregard for public process and for the efforts of the Planning Commission, the attendees at years of Planning Commission meetings, and the work of the Planning Department staff demonstrated by the Board of Supervisors in the straw poll vote taken on the “revised” General Plan Guiding Principles. How is it even possible that a vote of such importance could be announced with merely three days’ notice? How is it possible that these “revised” principles could be cooked-up behind closed doors and then sprung on the public in such a manner? These are not minor edits but are major revisions, particularly eliminating all
reference to protecting forests and farmland from further subdivision. In addition, the board voted to remove a key principle that spoke to the importance of including actionable plans for funding critical infrastructure needs. As a member of the board of the Weott Community Services District I can tell you that our outdated and grossly underfunded water and sewer systems in our community and other small communities like ours are in desperate financial straits. For these reasons and many others, the board must reconsider the decision to adopt revised General Plan Guiding Principles to allow sufficient time for public participation and to remedy these and other gross omissions. Barbara Kennedy, Weott
You deserve it.
Bug Spray Not OK Editor: We get a free copy of the Journal every week because it is paid for by advertisers. So, when I see an ad for Bayer Crop Science Complete Insect Killer for a mere $8.99 at Ace “The Helpful Place” (June 13), I am both saddened and horrified. Bayer’s Complete Insect Killer’s main ingredient is Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid which has been implicated in bee death. How is this helpful? Good people put trust in your advertisers and want to support them because they enable the North Coast Journal to exist. We need that trust to be upheld. Therefore, I would like to suggest that the Journal review advertising guidelines and consider refusing advertising for toxic and dangerous products which harm us all. What do you think?

Right: Calista and Richard on a bridge over the Seine in Paris.
Calista Sullivan and Richard Sanborn, Murphy’s Shoppers San Diego became a bit hectic for Richard and Calista, so they swapped that life for a tranquil half-acre in Bayside. Richard designed their home with a large deck overlooking ﬁelds and woods. They moved in Thanksgiving Day 1987. Murphy’s roasted that ﬁrst Thanksgiving turkey for them and they’ve been faithful customers ever since. Several times a year, Calista and Richard get the urge to travel. San Francisco, the Oregon Coast, the Rockies, New York City, New England and laid-back Key West, Florida are their favorite U.S. destinations. In Key West, Richard and Calista suggest a great place to visit is The Fort Zachary Taylor State Historic Site built in the mid-1800s.
When they visit Europe, they love Paris and London. During a recent ten-day stay in Paris they found an apartment near the Eiffel Tower. Right down the street were all the necessities: a fruit and vegetable seller, coffeehouse, butcher, bakery and two restaurants. They enjoyed companionable walks through town each day and shopped for fresh food which they prepared in their kitchen. Of course, there was always time to stop for refreshments at a sidewalk café in Paris. Their love of books is another common bond. Calista was a librarian at HSU and the Humboldt County Library. After selling the Arcata landmark, Tin Can Mail Man, Richard began writing ﬁction.
He has written ﬁve novels and is always interested in talking with agents or publishers. Old Arcata Road denizens are familiar with the couple who walks that road almost every morning. That’s Richard and Calista! They have tallied up 13,000 miles or so in the past 22 years on that route, just a two mile trip at a time. At home in Bayside, just like in Paris, Richard and Calista can walk down the street, ﬁnd local fresh fruits and vegetables, a steaming cup of coffee, baked goods, hot food to go and a personal meat market that’ll roast a chicken just for them... or for you! And it is all at your friendly neighborhood Murphy’s Market. By Colleen Hole, Advertising, North Coast Journal

Inside KEET By Matt Knight
s a KEET volunteer of over 15 years and employee for just under three years, I read your article (“KEET at the Crossroads,” June 20) with interest. I left the station in October of 2012 under circumstances which were both puzzling and sad. I loved my job at KEET. Probably too much for my own good. So what I am about to relate could be characterized as sour grapes. That said, I am a true believer in the station and in public broadcasting. However, going from volunteer to employee was an eye-opening experience. Senior staff seemed more focused on running out the clock than advancing KEET’s mission. In my opinion, KEET’s leadership almost completely lacked (and lacks) the energy, motivation and insight for the many challenges ahead. Leaders at KEET have adopted a deer-in-the-headlights approach to the onrushing media sea change and financial crunch. With predictable results. Mr. Schoenherr pegged Corporation for Public Broadcasting support at 46 percent in a February 2011 San Francisco Chronicle article. Perhaps the one-time gift of $200,000 has brought that down to one-third of the annual 2012 budget, the amount he mentions in your article. But this is an event not likely to be repeated and not a basis for a solid financial future. He says a merger is unlikely. He doesn’t say that the station may have very little choice in the matter. Even more troubling, it seemed very much like the people who cared the most were treated the worst. Many of us joked about “working on the plantation.” That was very much the prevailing attitude of superiors. Staff meetings were rarely held. When they were, the word was often put out beforehand that certain topics were off the table. New ideas were discouraged or given short-shrift. Fundraising goals were never openly stated and presumably never met. With the possible exception of the two most high-profile events, the director of development and the general manager were rarely present at fundraising activities. For such a small station, all hands must be on deck to be effective. This was almost never the case, in my experience.
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” - George R.R. Martin
A callous disregard also extended to station volunteers. Certain long-time volunteers and community members were deemed “unsuitable” and simply never asked back to fundraising events. Others were more directly disrespected and devalued. As a result, it became difficult to recruit them for fundraising activities. This led to the curtailing of the twiceyearly local pledge nights — down from seven to 10 days in the past to as little as three days today. It was decided that it was simply easier (less work) to put up the national fundraising feeds than to find and schedule community members. This was a crucial misstep. The station was simply left to the mercy of government for major support, making the least effort possible to be involved in or relevant to the community it supposedly serves. The station’s local productions were (and continue to be) among its bright spots. But even these were a challenge to mount as senior staff seemed openly hostile to them. I was told by the station’s engineer that they were “more trouble than they are worth.” In one case, the former outreach director was reprimanded for buying food for the hardworking volunteer crew of North Coast Sessions. Yes, some great local television got made — of which the station can be very proud. But only in spite of itself. Also plaguing the station was (and is) a singular lack of oversight. I found KEET’s board of directors to be both lazy and inattentive, meeting once a month to swallow wholesale whatever platitudes were served up by senior staff. They set fundraising goals which they did not meet and which once unmet were simply abandoned. The board did not behave like a body charged with making hard decisions. There is no better evidence of its poor stewardship than the mess the station finds itself in now. Even so, I would urge your readers to continue to support KEET. It is a treasured resource and one that would be sorely missed. However, such support should be made conditional on the replacement of KEET’s tired leadership and the deadwood on its board. KEET needs people who are ready, willing and able to it into the future. Otherwise, it seems unlikely there will be one. l

am creeped out. No, I didn’t go see “World War Z.” Instead, I read in the New York Times how the guy responsible for protecting the privacy of a billion Facebook users left Facebook in 2010 for the National Security Agency. But that’s only part of what’s creeping me out. And it’s not Edward Snowden’s blowout that the government taps our phone texts and contacts and whatnot. My general reaction to that story has been: “Well, yeah?” I assumed that the government or my bosses snoop into my records and tap my phones. These days, I picture Calstate Chancellor Timothy White clicking through my emails. So news of the NSA’s Prism program had the same effect on me that I imagine the Pentagon Papers would have had back in 1971, had I not been too busy reading “Dick and Jane”: Really, our government has lied to us about Vietnam? What creeps me out is that this massive national peeping into our personal data comes even as our California lawmakers try to keep us from poking around government data, which we have had a right to since 1968, through the California Public Records Act. They tried to attach to passage of the state budget a sneaky measure that would weaken the public records act. Gov. Jerry Brown says it would save tens of millions of dollars. But in a $97 billion state budget, that savings is chump change. And after years of astronomical deficits, we are awash with money. As I write this column, I don’t know how this will shake out. An outcry may stop the proposed changes. This is part of what might be a national trend. According to the Sacramento Bee, back in 2011, Utah passed a law that would keep out of public hands emails, text messages and other communications by public officials. After a public outcry lawmakers repealed the measure. Why now? The same reason that government peeping into my personal info only now makes me nervous: It isn’t the data one collects that’s the problem; it is what one can now do with data collected.
8 North Coast Journal • Thursday, June 27, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
One of the proposed changes to the CPRA would allow local agencies to give out information on paper only — which would make it difficult to analyze data. I love Microsoft Excel. You import data into it, sort it, find the right Excel formula, and suddenly wonderful patterns appear: what money has been spent on what; where campaign money came from; which people public officials mix with in social circles. With Google Spreadsheets, you can share and pool data with other people. So now ordinary citizens can do sophisticated investigations into how government works. And that creeps out folks who work in government. This, too, is why the more I learn about the NSA’s Prism program, the more creeped out I become. It isn’t that they snoop. It is that they massively snoop. And now they can dump all that data into powerful software that can sort it much better than Excel, find the right formulas and find all kinds of suspicious connections — Marcy Burstiner, a college professor, trains impressionable youth. She has a sizeable number of Chinese international students and past connections with Saudi Arabians, Lebanese, Pakistanis, disgruntled American veterans, environmental extremists, feminazi lesbians and fruititarian freegans, and she once spent three months in Malaysia — a Muslim country. And her TiVo records show she watches a disturbing number of Nazi and zombie movies and has at her bedside Julian Barnes’ Sense of an Ending (which sounds apocalyptic, doesn’t it?). OMG! I’m a terrorist and I never even knew it! Imagine if back in the 1950s, Sen. Joseph McCarthy had access to all this data and powerful databases to sort it. Imagine if the House Committee on Un-American Activities had it. I’d be so blacklisted. We live in a time when our president justifies preemptive unmanned drone assassinations of American citizens. We have an American prison in an Air Force base on Cuba filled with people imprisoned for years without trial. We are currently using unmanned drones to patrol the U.S.-Mexi-
can border to stop illegal crossings. And all the checks and balances our democracy was designed around are melting. Instead of an executive branch checked by a legislative branch checked by a judiciary, we have our legislators endorsing the actions of the president, which are then given the stamp of constitutionality by the U.S. Supreme Court. And the Fourth Estate? Corporations have systematically bought up our news organizations and decimated the press. The only protection we have left is the ability as individual citizens working collectively to monitor the actions of our government and call out our leaders when they do something too creepy. This is why people like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden feel compelled to put their own freedoms in jeopardy to leak information. Too many of the documents Snowden leaked shouldn’t have been classified in the first place. And, by the way, how much of Manning’s trial, which is going on now, have you heard about through the news media? It isn’t the snooping that creeps me out. It is the combined penetration into all our information at the same time that the government tries hard to keep its own information out of our hands. I want the right to classify my own data. My iPhoto files? Classified. My Gmail account? Top Secret. My iTunes library? Fuhgeddaboudit. Meanwhile, NSA, do me a favor. I set up a Gmail account, and I can’t for the life of me remember the password I used. Can you dig it up and text it to me? You’ve got my number.

The wooden stakes planted in the Manila dunes are gone again, spurned as an unsanctioned environmental experiment. The Manila Community Services District removed them today, and is storing the slats at its office if someone wants to pick them up. According to Steve Werner, a Humboldt County building and planning supervisor, the district had to either amend its existing permit to include the stakes or else remove them from the beach. Werner said the installation of the stakes was “surprising to see without district authorization.” The Manila Community Services District owns the land and already has a permit for dune restoration, but that permit doesn’t include the rogue stake experiment, which went in without any official approval. “I didn’t see a need for a permit. We’re just repairing,” said Uri Driscoll, who compared his group’s stake installation to children building in the sand. Now that he has learned the county sees it differently, he plans to investigate a little more. On June 17, Driscoll and his ad hoc
team, Bill Weigle, Dennis Mayo and Ray Reel, pounded in the sticks to try to rebuild what they consider a “blowout,” an unstable depression in the dunes (“Rogue Dune Experiment,” June 20). They were hoping to repeat the success of similar actions on the East Coast and in Oregon. It’s their contention that the removal of European beach grass by the Friends of the Dunes, under the auspices of the county and the Manila district, has damaged the dunes. Friends of the Dunes Executive Director Carol Vander Meer conceded that stakes might be something to try in the future, but she stressed the need for careful consideration and input from the scientific community first. She pointed out, “What some people might call a blowout might be a natural area of movement that might allow new plants to come in. From an ecologist’s point of view, we need some areas like that.” Someone first removed the stakes over the weekend, but no one claimed responsibility. Driscoll and Reel wasted no time re-planting them, adding a sign that read, “Dune repair in progress. Please do not disturb.”

ROGUE STAKES IN THE DUNES. PHOTO BY CHRIS DRISCOLL.
Coastal Commission District Manager Bob Merrill said his office has contacted the commission’s enforcement staff in San Francisco about the issue. While the area is not in a zone where the Coastal Commission issues permits, Merrill wanted to keep the San Francisco office in the loop. John Woolley, a Manila Community Services District board member, said that any plan for the dunes “should be first examined as a proposal, which we’ve never received.” Even if the district wanted to
add the stakes to its permit, the slats could not go in until the permit was amended and approved. Driscoll was surprised to learn the stakes had been removed again. He said that the Manila Community Services District needs “to address the fact that they created a topographical change in the dune,” and that, “We’re hoping to have a collaboration ... and bring the dune back to its original height and shape.” ●

Humboldt has front row seats for a music fest celebrating an overgrown xylophone By Jennifer Fumiko Cahill
PHOTO COURTESY OF MARIMBA ONE
hen Nancy Zeltsman meets someone, on an airplane, for example, and says that she’s a marimba player, “the next question is always, ‘What’s that?’” She usually answers that it’s like a giant bass xylophone, since everyone is at least familiar with the toy version, even if the reference only calls to mind “the music behind the dancing skeletons” in cartoons. Probably you’ve heard it as the default ringtone of an iPhone, the music between stories on NPR, on Jimmy Buffet’s “Margaritaville” or the Rolling Stones’ classic “Under My Thumb.” Somewhere around the age of 8, Zeltsman, who began playing piano at age 5, had a small revelation. “I’m a musician,” she thought, “but I’m just not sure the piano is my instrument.” Later, as a teenager, she was “hooked” on the tympany and xylophone, but it was the rosewood keys of the marimba that won her heart. “There’s just something seductive about the fact that you can make this very rich, warm tone from a resonating piece of wood,” she says. Zeltsman suspects that this sound,

the natural ring of once living wood, is what draws so many people in, including the musicians attending the marimba festival that bears her name. This year, the marimba world converges on the HSU campus for the Zeltsman Marimba Festival. This is the first time the 11-year-old festival, which has taken place in Los Angeles, Boston and Amsterdam, is happening here. The festival runs June 30 through July 13, with eight nights of concerts for the public and master classes taught by an international faculty of marimba all-stars for musicians. Arcata is already hallowed ground for marimbists, as it is home to Marimba One, maker of this somewhat mysterious instrument that is at once rhythm and melody, ancient and high-tech. If you’ve ever looked at the inside of a piano, you’ve seen how the keys control soft little felt hammers that strike the taut strings to sound the notes. To play the marimba is to move inside that space, holding the mallets in your hands and hitting the rosewood slats directly, controlling the force, angle and speed of each strike. “It means we can actually do a lot more sophisticated types of strokes,” says Zeltsman. “That’s how you can really be more expressive.” She feels the instrument is capable of “a bigger range of sound quality and color” than a piano, with more ways for an individual musician to create a unique sound, even though fewer notes are ringing at once. You could be forgiven for mistaking the
marimba for a xylophone. The basic principal is the same: hitting slats of different sizes to produce notes. But the marimba’s double row of wooden bars creates a completely different sound, warm, rich and natural, as opposed to the metallic chime of a xylophone. It also has the range and fullness of a guitar. Below each of the marimba’s bars is a resonator tube that acts to enlarge the sound and, well, resonate, just as the body of a guitar or a piano does. Like the guitar and the piano, the marimba lends itself to solo performance, both rhythmic and melodic, capable of a broad range of moods from playful to haunting. Zeltsman can’t help dancing a little with her marimba. In a video posted on her website, she darts back and forth over the keys with two mallets crossed in each hand, swaying her shoulders and smiling as she taps out a whimsical passage accompanied by clarinet. The marimba is 8 ½ feet long, and unlike the piano, your fingers aren’t in contact with the keys, and you can’t sit. While most players don’t focus on how their bodies move, Zeltsman points out that playing requires “big physical gestures” that are part of the sound and the experience of playing. To hit the bars and hit them just so involves the whole body, shifting weight, changing posture, reaching out and pulling in. The concert portion of the festival will give participants and the rest of us a chance to see and hear players who Zeltsman says have “really explored the instrument.” A few of the ensemble pieces in the concert series will also feature master class participants who have been coached by faculty members. Two to three headliners are scheduled each night for the sake of variety — of which there is a great deal. Opening night, June 30, for example, features California native and former principal percussionist of the San Francisco Symphony, Jack

Van Geem, whom Zeltsman calls one of marimba’s “best kept secrets.” The same evening, Beverly Johnston from Canada will perform one piece on marimba and flower pots. Actual flower pots. Another piece will have Johnston doing a little rapping. That’s just the first night. Zeltsman is as excited for the performances as anyone, saying, “I am personally fascinated by everybody on the faculty, so I’m kind of dying to hear all of them.”
At least seven
of the instruments to be played at the Zeltsman Marimba Festival were made by Marimba One, in an industrial building at the end of O Street in Arcata. Company owner Ron Samuels has a sleepy-eyed smile as he ambles around the factory floor in flip flops and a wool sweater. “I’m not OSHA safe today,” he says, shrugging at his footwear. The same deep marimba sound that lured Nancy Zeltsman into playing gave Samuels the itch to build one. After that, “to satisfy my addiction I had to start selling them,” he says with a soft chuckle. Some of his earlier models went back to the instrument’s African roots, using gourds, a few bundles of which still hang from the ceiling in nets above the shop. Founded in 1986, Marimba One now employs roughly 25 people and is widely recognized as one of the top American marimba manufacturers, alongside companies like Malletech, Musser and Demorrow. All around the cavernous warehouse space are pallets and shelves of rosewood bars, stacked like gold bullion. The sawdust in the air is less sharp-smelling than in a typical woodshop, and the floor is constantly being swept. Samuels explains that Marimba One almost exclusively uses rosewood, the preferred material for marimbas, because of its “naturally musical” qualities. The exception is a one-of-a-kind showpiece with a frame of ziricote, a rare wood found in Mexico and Guatemala that has a beautiful swirling grain, to be unveiled at the Zeltsman Marimba Festival. Samuels regularly travels to Central America to buy the high-quality rosewood, inspecting trees and planks before having them milled and shipped back to Arcata for air and kiln drying.
Honduran rosewood is rare, only growing in Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. The tree is not on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of endangered species, but those in the marimba business are concerned about its future. Some companies are trying out synthetic materials or alternative woods, like padouk, which work, but don’t make quite the same sound. Marimba One is talking with Vice Mayor Mark Wheetley and the Arcata City Council about the possibility of establishing a sister forest in Belize modeled after the Arcata Community Forest. Samuels and his team are also researching ways to best use their scrap materials, so they waste as little as possible. Despite the distance from the forests of Central America, Samuels built Marimba One in Humboldt because “it’s nice here. People love it here.” He says he prefers working with people who are happy to be where they are, a relaxed contentment he’s not sure he could find somewhere like Los Angeles. Samuels himself left the Los Angeles area to attend HSU and fell in love with the area. Humboldt County’s steady climate is also good for marimba making. Fairly constant humidity is optimal for wood, and the North Coast doesn’t have the same wild variations in temperature that can wreak havoc with tuning on the East Coast. Even so, the concrete shop floor at Marimba One is heated to keep a constant temperature, and its storage warehouse around the corner is downright balmy. Josh Stumps, the head of acoustical research, is wearing safety glasses and working a band saw, carving arches into the undersides of bars, roughing out notes to be fine-tuned later. Behind him are broad slats of wood with names written on them in chalk: “Ghost,” “Pyite” and “Caspian.” The boards are named by the men who work on them to ensure that each marimba’s frame comes from a continuous piece of wood. Extra pieces are kept aside on the off chance that a frame will need to be repaired. Master tuner Brian Stern works off to the side of the shop in a small, low-ceilinged room that feels a bit like a humidor. Shelves of cocoa-colored bars cover two continued on next page

continued from previous page walls, each shelf faintly marked by a musical note. Spider, a husky mix, rests her chin on her paws in the corner. Stern picks up a bar and taps it with a mallet in front of two sawdust-covered microphones. The mics are hooked up to a strobe tuner, a retro sci-fi machine with spinning dials that whir into a visible checkerboard pattern when the correct pitch is achieved. If the pitch is off, Stern uses the drum sander directly below the tuner to shave off a little more from the arch on the underside of the bar. Knowing how much to sand and from what part of the arch is something that takes years of practice. This is where the technological exactitude ends and a well-trained ear takes over. To “voice” a marimba according to the musician’s desires, Stern listens to the bars, their strong or weak overtones, the “brightness” or “darkness” of their sounds and the evenness and clarity of their ringing due to natural variations in the wood. The assembled marimba needs to have a consistent tonal quality among the keys, a unified palette of notes. To a layperson, the process can seem a bit mysterious. To a marimbist, however, the nuances of sound are vital, and worth a high price. A marimba made with the cream of the rosewood crop will cost thousands more than Marimba One’s
standard model, which runs about $13,000. Premium voicing and other customization can bring the price tag to around $25,000. The marimba, specifically its keyboard, is delicate. Poor storage and poor playing can both damage an instrument and its sound. About a decade ago, a high school sent in for tuning a marimba so out of whack that Samuels called up the music department to ask what had happened. He was told the students had been allowed to “have at it,” hammering away at random and leaving the instrument “confused.” On the other hand, when world-renowned marimbist Katarzyna Myćka sent her instrument in for tuning, the Marimba One tuners were surprised to find it sounding even better than when they first built it. Samuels and his crew believe that a
marimba’s sound can be enhanced by a truly gifted musician who is consistently hitting “the sweet spot” on the keys, allowing it to “open up” like the seasoned violin of a master. When asked how this kind of change in the sound of the bars is possible, Samuels, who has been building marimbas since the mid-1980s, smiles, touches his chin and answers, “I really don’t know.” Leigh Howard Stevens, owner of rival company Malletech in New Jersey and founder of the annual Leigh Howard Stevens Marimba Seminar, is a bit less romantic on the subject. Stevens feels that some of the talk about tonal distinctions of marimRon Samuels demonstrates the musical bas can verge on “marketing smoke tone of a rosewood bar. photo by Kimberly Hodges and mirrors.” He is also quick to point out the advantages of Malletech’s patented adjustable damage a skilled player inflicts.

stopper at a specific level to amplify its corresponding key. This is Marimba One’s signature Basso Bravo design, developed by Samuels and Stumps. The design allows their marimbas to play 5 ½ octaves rather than the standard five. Like Spinal Tap’s amp, their marimbas go to 11. The extended range is particularly useful for playing pieces originally written for violin, and it broadens the possibilities for the marimba as a concert instrument. It’s a major selling point, and its secrets are guarded jealously. In fact, Samuels does not allow the taking of photos in the resonator section of the shop. Marketing Director Nicole Riggs, a French woman with sunny freckles and a wave of red hair, apologizes for the secrecy. The marimba industry “is a strange world,” she says.

“It’s small, but the competition is fierce.” Though some of Marimba One’s designs are patented, she says they have been copied and replicated by rivals. Eight marimbas are boxed up for shipping at the moment, but she will not divulge how many the company builds or sells yearly. Riggs is even reluctant to share the full names of her tuners. She gives a small laugh and says that there are “very few in the world, and we treasure them.” As she sweeps briskly up the stairs, Riggs warns that photos are not allowed in the mallet shop either. According to the website, Arias Ruiz is “Boss of the Mallet World,” an enviable title. “I’m more like a king,” he jokes. Arias is a young man with black-framed glasses, and he spends much of his time in front of a machine that looks like it came from Tim Burton’s garage. There are what look like bike chains, chunky gears and two strands of yard being wound onto the top of a wooden
stick. “It’s kind of a Frankenstein in a way,” he says. The winder is a mix of high and low tech, conceived of by local engineering guru Frank Jolly and developed by Samuels and Steve Cole. Cole, who sports a white handlebar mustache that is in itself a feat of engineering, is a former Yakima engineer. He and Samuels met while shoveling manure at Freshwater stables, and eventually Samuels convinced Cole to help with the more complex problem of winding mallet heads with two strands instead of the usual one. The unique double-winding system is another industry secret. When Arias is asked how many mallets he winds in a day, Riggs quickly says that he cannot divulge the number. A box of at least two dozen sits on the table beside the machine. Arias, who is a drummer, says that the intricate weaving creates more variables for adjusting the sound they make. He shows off some colorful samples, slightly egg-shaped ones in navy and turquoise, and orange and gray ones that have a yin-yang swirl at the top. Riggs smiles and says they are fine to photocontinued on next page

continued from previous page graph — just not near the winder. While he can hardly resist playing a few notes when there’s an assembled marimba on the floor, Arias is no marimbist. It’s hard to believe there isn’t a closet player among them, but nobody in the shop will admit to really playing the marimba, even Samuels. It could just be that working with pros like Zeltsman and Myćka on the design and tuning of instruments over the years has made everyone humble. Samuels is president of the board of trustees for the Zeltsman Marimba Festival, and Zeltsman endorses his products, so he’s thrilled that the festival is being held in Arcata, and he’s planning tours of the factory for visiting musicians.
who’s been playing professionally for more than 30 years, decided to make a career of the marimba, it was an unusual path. Most orchestras still don’t have a dedicated marimbist. If anything, they have a percussionist who handles a number of instruments, one of which might be the marimba. In fact, relatively few pieces had been written specifically for the marimba back then. It has only existed as a concert instrument since the 1970s, despite its being, according to Zeltsman, “truly one of the most viable solo instruments.” As a specialty, the instrument offered uncharted territory, a challenge too exciting for a young musician to resist. These days, Nancy Zeltsman is a chair at the Boston Conservatory and the Berklee College of Music, both positions that were created for her in 1993 to teach marimba as a specialty within their percussion departments. While the marimba is gaining in popularity, such an emphasis on the instrument in a music department is still fairly rare. There is also still a dearth of music for the instrument. For about a decade, Zeltsman paired with a violinist and “basically created a repertoire for violin and marimba because there wasn’t any music written for that,” she recalls. Most recently, she has been doing the same with a clarinetist. Her work expanding the catalog of music for marimba has been a “huge service” to the instrument, according to Dr. Marc Woolridge, professor of music at Indiana Wesleyan University,

who is unaffiliated with her festival. He calls Zeltsman “a phenomenal player,” and predicts that for Humboldt audiences, Zeltsman and Marimba One are going to make an “unbeatable” combination. Most of the time, marimbists are alone in the back of an orchestra. Zeltsman’s festival was born from her desire to create an event where marimba players could connect, “focus on musicianship” and share ideas about how to expand the marimba repertoire. “One of my little dreams,” she says, “is to elevate the instrument as a concert instrument.” According to Zeltsman, more than 360 people have

participated in the festivals since 2001. Now, “a lot of them are starting to kind of make careers as marimba soloists or teachers … and a lot of them have gone on to study with teachers on the other side of the world that they met at the marimba festival.” In comparison to his own seminar, Stevens says the Zeltsman Marimba Festival is “more of a happening,” since the Leigh Howard Stevens Seminar is more strictly focused on technique and the method of playing he himself developed. At his annual seminars, “students know they’re going to get hammered,” he adds, laughing. “They probably have more fun at Nancy’s.” Humboldt native Tyler Hunt is looking forward to the festival for the very reasons Zeltsman started it: the prospect of working with musicians and teachers from all over the world. Plus, “it’s kind of cool it’ll be here in my hometown,” he says over the phone. The festival is “a whole melting pot of teachers and experience,” he says. Hunt, 26, graduated from HSU with a degree in percussion performance, a field he will pursue further in the master’s program at California State University at Long Beach. He says he plays “a little
bit of everything” but finds the marimba alluring for its “powerful combination of the melodic and harmonic … [and its] percussive element.” Like Zeltsman, he’s also excited about the new ground yet to be broken with the marimba. “People don’t know what its potential as a concert instrument is.” Hunt will attend the master classes and also perform in the participants’ concert. Since marimbas are a bit large and expensive for a grad student, he’ll be using one that HSU and local teachers are loaning for the festival. Still, he hopes to own one in the future. Zelstman hasn’t actually seen inside the HSU buildings the festival will be using yet, which makes her only slightly nervous. She says that putting the event together is always “a nail-biter,” but once everything is happening, she enjoys seeing everyone connecting and inspiring one another. “For me the fun of it is once everybody assembles, just kind of standing back and watching it all click,” she says, “I have no idea who’s going to really get lit up by one person or another, but it’s really just a blast to kind of stand back and watch that happen.” l

s I wrote last week, a book with the innocent-sounding title “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,” published by the American Psychiatric Association, affects many — perhaps most — lives in America. Fourteen years in the making, the latest revision (DSM-5) received broadside after broadside even before publication last month. Allen Frances, the psychiatrist who spearheaded the previous version, wrote a book-length criticism, “Saving Normal.” Psychotherapist Gary Greenberg is upfront with his distaste, titling his anti-DSM polemic “The Book of Woe.” And the director of the National Institutes for Mental Health recently wrote that the DSM “suffers from a lack of validity.” Sometimes called the “bible of psychiatry,” the DSM relies on a subjective reading of a patient’s symptoms to diagnose the underlying cause of the suffering, which is assumed to have a biological basis (such as, for instance, a deficit of serotonin causing depression). This “disease model” is far from proven, but even if it is valid, the DSM is still deeply flawed, according to its detractors. Criticisms include: Lack of precision: Diagnoses of mental disorders is based on symptoms as reported by the patient and observed by the caregiver. The DSM subjective system of classification results in the “clustering” of diverse individuals into groups who are treated in a similar fashion. Predictably, results are not coherent: Some patients respond well, some badly. Inconsistent Boundaries: In 1968, DSM-II (134 pages) defined the symptoms of 182 mental disorders. Thirty-two years later, DSM-IV-TR listed 365 diagnoses in its 943 pages. The 992-page DSM-5 includes just 157 disorders. The wildly variable number of diagnoses has led critics to accuse the psychiatric association of capriciousness in defining discrete conditions. One particular example has made the headlines recently: Asperger syndrome and autism, previously diagnosed and treated as separate disorders, now come under the same label. Redefining “normal”: As a “consensus document,” the DSM has been notoriously fickle in what’s considered normal, with diagnoses subject to the cultural and political currents of the day. Forty years ago, for instance, at about the same time that the manual reframed homosexuality (no longer abnormal!), it listed hyperactivity and inat-
tentiveness as abnormal. “Attentiondeficit hyperactivity disorder” was born, and now, by DSM criteria, some 20 percent of teenage boys suffer from it. Yet ADHD is so controversial that many researchers in the field claim it to be a non-medical issue, while some even doubt its existence. Conflict of interest: A 2006 study by researchers from the University of Mass and Tufts concluded: “Of the 170 DSM panel members 95 (56 percent) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry” and “…one hundred percent of the members of the panels on ‘Mood Disorders’ and ‘Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies.” Promoting pills: Critics claim the DSM has legitimized prescription of an everincreasing number of medications to evermore people, to the point where one in eight of us, including young children, is now on psychotropic medication. In my column The Drugging of America (Sept. 29, 2011), I discussed the flimsiness of evidence for the effectiveness — for most people most of the time — of six common antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs, when compared with inert placebos. With the withdrawal of support by the National Institute of Mental Health, the DSM is probably on its deathbed, but absent alternatives, it’s not going to go away just yet. The future holds promise for what the institute calls the “Research Domain Criteria” project. If emerging research pans out, the project will lead to brain disorders being diagnosed objectively through “biomarkers,” rather than symptoms. One can only hope. As Allen Frances said in a New York Times op-ed last year, “Psychiatric diagnosis is simply too important to be left exclusively in the hands of psychiatrists.” Amen to that. l Barry Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org), now finds he’s abnormal (according to the DSM), meaning he’s normal like everyone else.

24 North Coast Journal • Thursday, june 27, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
review. But it may aid your enjoyment if you know, especially if the otherwise terrific opening song that sets up the premise is not completely clear. (It’s an original piece that substitutes for the play’s opening scene.) Aside from this (and maybe some audibility and intelligibility issues on opening night), it’s all good. With roots in earlier Greek and Roman plays, The Comedy of Errors was one of Shakespeare’s first comedies, and perhaps the only one that flourishes when played so broadly and at times ironically. Some scenes are missing but much of Shakespeare’s language remains. Michael Fields’ imaginative direction (it has to be one of his best efforts) and the skillful enthusiasm of a fully committed cast of performers provide both the sense and a style to the lines and the action. Daniel Spencer’s set is dominated by doors, which enable as well as signal a farcical treatment. There’s servant-beating in the script, which is successfully treated as clown business. When Antiphola and Dromio as well as other characters are trading witticisms, they play it as vaudeville comics. Yet for all the hilarity, the play deals with issues of identity, and it has real feeling in a surprisingly joyful and not entirely predictable ending of resurrection and reunion. This is probably the most disciplined as well as structured Dell’Arte summer production I’ve seen, revealing familiar skills in a different way, and new possibilities. Schirle is outstanding as the red-headed Antiphola twins. Eldredge and Yorke are convincing twin sprites. Chase McNeill as the husband of Antiphola of Ephesus worked with such visible energy to get across one of his speeches on opening night that the audience applauded. Lynnie Horrigan plays his sister with physical and vocal clarity, becoming the sudden love interest of the visiting
Double Trouble Dell’Arte doing a Shakespeare comedy is no error By William S. Kowinski email@example.com
Joan Schirle as the twin Antipholas and Andrew Eldredge As Dromio in Dell’ Arte’s production of The Comedy of Errors. Photo By Nels Israelson
f you go to the brisk, high-spirited, physically witty and generally funny Dell’Arte production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors and you aren’t familiar with the play, here’s the premise you need to know: An old man shows up in the marketplace of Ephesus, which is remarkably like the Arcata Plaza. Because he is from a hostile state, he is by law condemned to death. But he tells a sad story about twins — his twin daughters and the twin boys he bought as servants for them, all infants. In a shipwreck years ago, his wife, one daughter and one of the boys were swept away. The survivors who recently set out to search for
their twins are now themselves missing, so he came here to look for them. The Ephesians are moved, but can’t disobey the law. The Duchess allows him until sundown to try to raise the considerable fine and save his life. The rest of the play revolves around the fact that both sets of twins are now in Ephesus: the daughters, both the traveling Antiphola who has just arrived, and the Antiphola who has lived here for years (both played by Joan Schirle) and their twin servants named Dromio (Andrew Eldredge and Jerome Yorke.) Multiple mistaken identities result in the mayhem that ensues. You don’t have to memorize this — it’s summarized in the program so you can
Antiphola. MacNeil and Horrigan gamely and gracefully create characters different from the originals, as a result of Shakespeare’s Antipholus becoming Dell’Arte’s Antiphola, and so they augment the scripted humor with more 2013 comic accents. Zuzka Sabata is the blues-singing old man, and Janessa Johnsrude is the duchess on a bicycle (inspired by a certain ex-mayor of Arcata who showed up at a Farmers Market in spandex bike togs). There are other reminders of the Arcata Plaza ambience as well. The rest of the excellent cast (often in multiple roles) are Pratik Motwani, Anna Gettles, Ruxy Cantir, Emily Newton, Meghan Frank, Moses Norton and Drew Pannebecker, with a comic cameo by Fields. Tim Gray composed the music, with songs also by Zuzka Sabata, Schirle and Lyndsey Battle, plus lyrical assists from William Shakespeare. The always excellent band is Tim Randles, Marla Joy and Mike LaBolle. Michael Foster designed lighting, Lydia Foreman the eye-catching costumes. The Comedy of Errors plays for two more weekends in the outdoor Rooney Amphitheatre, ending July 7. It runs about two hours. Next at the Mad River Festival: the children’s noontime show, IN-Tents, on June 29 and 30, and the Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony and dinner on June 29, honoring Jane Hill. The Red Light in Blue Lake cabaret plays twice, July 5 and 6, and The Submarine Show is onstage July 11-13. Details at www. dellarte.com.
Coming Up: Ferndale Rep isn’t the
only one — North Coast Repertory Theatre also has a “Second Stage” program of limited run plays with modest productions and lower admission charge. The latest example is on the NCRT stage in Eureka this weekend: About Time, a two-character play about aging by East Coast writer Tom Cole, directed by Matt Cole, and starring Toodie Boll and Matt’s father Gene Cole. For high school age and older, it plays Saturday June 29 at 8 p.m. and Sunday June 30 at 2 p.m. 442-NCRT. Redwood Curtain's next show is a modernized French farce, The Heir Apparent, which previews July 5 and opens July 6. l

What does it all mean? Choosing words and music with care By Jennifer Savage firstname.lastname@example.org
So much more than ‘quirky folk’
On Thursday night at Hum Brews, for example, a chance to immerse yourself in Shook Twins. Twin sisters Katelyn and Laurie Shook team up with bandmates Kyle Volkman and Niko Daoussis to make what is casually labeled “quirky folk,” a summary that, while accurate, falls short of defining the near-transcendent experience they provide. The harmonizing hypnotizes. The looping machine mesmerizes. The golden egg gleams. Weird? Yes. Central elements of the Shook Twins sound include the aforementioned looping machine and golden egg (really), plus banjo, guitar, upright bass, mandolin, beatbox, glockenspiel, ukulele and djembe. In some hands, all this variety and oddness might be a gimmick, but in Shook Twins’ talented embrace, the whole is far more than the sum of its parts. Music is often described in terms of “lifting,”
26 North Coast Journal • Thursday, June 27, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
“rising” or “elevating,” and Shook Twins’ songs evoke that sensation absolutely. Strip away all the bells and whistles, the musicians’ impressive skills, and you have those voices. Singing siblings have an advantage in harmonizing, and twins likely more so — Katelyn and Laurie’s voices blend together, weaving sound until you can’t tell whose is whose. All you know is that the world is awash in beauty and so are you. Near-transcendent? Full-blown rapture. Oh – and they’re funny! Silly stories and goofy song topics account for the “quirky.” But however anyone tries to define the band, Shook Twins will probably

be a little bit more. They’ve shared various stages with Ryan Adams, Mason Jennings, Laura Veirs, Michelle Shocked, JJ Gray and MoFro, Crooked Still and The Head and The Heart, among others. Tickets are only $10, Cyber Camel opens, show starts at 9 p.m., 21-and-over. Listen ahead at http:// www.shooktwins.com or via your Spotify account.
Your new favorite ‘allgirl surf pop band’
Photo courtesy of La Luz.
Saturday night, a few options. First, La Luz and the Monster Women are playing at the Works in Old Town. The four-piece La Luz is described as an “all-girl surf pop
band from Seattle.” Let’s examine that a bit further. That the band consists of four women remains a fact worth noting because all-girl bands remain an exception. If you would like to be reminded that chicks can kick ass at guitar and drums, here’s a fun opportunity. Surf pop! But this is not your average Link-Wray-meets-TheRonettes nostalgia. That’s only the launching pad for a reverb-filled musical stratosphere heavy with sunshine and hooks you can’t resist. Whatever the literal weather is doing Saturday evening, summer will be in full bloom at The Works. La Luz already holds a firm grasp on being one of the Seattle scene’s most favored darlings. Odds are the band will only get bigger. This is a chance to see it (and the always cool Monster Women) in a small venue for only $5. Go here http://laluz.bandcamp. com/ and give a listen. I particularly liked “Sure as Spring.” The show starts at 9 p.m. and is for all ages — a fact I’m compelled to highlight. All ages. All ages! Tell your under-21 friends.
sion that any one of them could gallop in on a horse and right a town’s wrongs. The foresight to include a high-res band photo with the show’s press release! (Yeah, baby!) Think relentless basslines, driving guitars and ’70s rocker lyrics: “My engine’s purring like your kitty with fuel injection/ It’s a 427, chrome steel erection/ The bars are all closed, now it’s time to rally/ I’ll meet you at the end of Camaro Alley.” (Dig the whole track here: http://www.reverbnation.com/drifterkiller.) A recent photo shoot, according to word on the Old Town streets, ended in a debauched tizzy of whiskey and naked women. Pretty sure it started out that way, too. The band promises “a volatile mixture of high energy rock’n’roll injected with doses of psychedelic trips gone wrong, Death Valley at dawn, drag races at night and drug deals gone right.” If you’re looking for trouble, the door is wide, wide open. The free show starts at 9 p.m., and is 21-and-over. Parental discretion is advised.
Hair rockers seeking Humboldt friends
New Liberty out of Ventura, a group dedicated to paying homage to “the bygone era of 1980s Sunset Strip rock in the vein of Guns N’ Roses and Motley Crüe,” is coming to Humboldt on Friday, July 26, on the way to the Burntwoodstock Festival in Oregon on Saturday, July 27, where the band will be headlining. The group is looking for local bands to rock with and maybe a gig. You can find more info on the band at www.newliberty.tv/epk and https:// www.facebook.com/newlibertyrocks.Local bands and talent bookers, have at it!

Hit the Sand, Man You know what they say: Your home is your castle. Nevertheless, this Saturday, June 29, you need to ditch those snug moat-surrounds and get yourself down to Manila Beach Dunes Recreation Area to build yourself a new one — a new castle, that is. Out of sand. Consider it a character-building exercise — because there’s nothing the Friends of the Dunes would like better than to build your character into that of a fun-loving, sand-eating — er, -enjoying — coastal ecosystem supporter. Dun-da-DUN: Yes! It’s time for that nonprofit’s 18th Annual Sand Sculpture Festival! Now, if taking on more shifting real estate isn’t your thing, you can build something else. Try a newt! Or an owl! Or a dreaming mermaid, shark-eating surfer, sinking ship, lily flower, sea turtle, cake, camel, Jabba the Hutt, groceries. Or — because those sand shapes have been done in past contests — make up some new kind of sandpacked monster/beauty/brain-noodler. Invite your friends, make it a genuine (sand)barn raising.
There will be cash prizes — for best of show, most life-like, humor, fantasy, ingenuity, “judge’s wild card” and best youth sculpture (by kids 16 and younger). There is a fee (raises money for Friends of the Dunes) — $7 per team of one to six people ($10 on the day of the festival); $12 for team of seven or more people ($15 on the day of the festival). And there are tips – check out the Friends of the Dunes’ website for the best ways to wrangle that sand (compaction is key, and digging deep and wet). The festival opens at 8 a.m. with registration at the Manila Community Center, 1611 Peninsula Drive. You can save some bucks by registering before Saturday, online (www. friendsofthedunes.org/sand_sculpture_festival) or at the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center, 220 Stamp Lane in Manila. Sculpting goes until 2 p.m., when the final judging takes place. And the festival ends at 3 p.m. — Heidi Walters

Down with the Kids We’re only a couple of weeks into summer vacation, but the kids are already bouncing off the walls.

There are plenty of free and cheap events to help you spend quality time like a boss. Summer Reading Camp starts at 10:30 a.m. on Friday at the Fortuna Library with puppeteer Sean Powers.

It’s Brad Pitt’s rugged good looks against the zombie apocalypse.
By Dev Richards
WORLD WAR Z. When Max Brooks’ novel World War Z came out in 2006, the avalanche of zombie-related entertainment was just beginning to gain momentum. Shaun of the Dead had just obtained cult status, Zombieland wasn’t even a twinkle in Woody Harrelson’s eye and The Walking Dead had yet to be adapted for television. Wisely, Paramount Studios quickly scooped up the rights to Brooks’ story; his critically acclaimed book was bound to be a goldmine. Teaming up with Plan B Studios (Brad Pitt’s production company), Paramount began the arduous process of converting the seemingly unadaptable book into something befitting a guaranteed blockbuster. Six years, two scripts and one option renewal later, World War Z finally made its debut on the big screen. You’d think that after all the time, build-up and effort, it would be a masterful, post-apocalyptic un-deadfest; regrettably, the film bears absolutely no resemblance to Brooks’ original brilliance, and generally fails to impress. In its original form, World War Z was a cleverly woven oral history of the great zombie war; more than 20 characters give their individual accounts of the progression of the war, ranging from the incredibly personal to the extremely tactical. The film adaptation tells a typical story of the zombie apocalypse from the viewpoint of one central character: former United Nations employee/action hero, Gerry Lane (Pitt). The zombie outbreak happens in a flash, and spreads incredibly quickly. Lane sacrifices his own safety, using his connections to secure the safety of his family in exchange for his help getting to the root of the zombie outbreak. With his wife and kids stowed away on an overcrowded
Monsters and Monster Disappointments Zombies go global and Pixar goes back to school aircraft carrier, Lane takes off on the sort of adventure only a high budget, disaster film can provide: car chases, rain-drenched foot races, blockade collapses, plane crashes, etc. Even if we sever the connection World War Z has to Brooks’ original story, it fizzles as a zombie film. The writers, Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom), Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) and Damon Lindelof (Lost) took Brooks’ title as a basic foundation, and then built a completely different story on top of it. Though they took great effort to create their own story, the end result was nothing more than a bastardized amalgamation of previous zombie movies. The few tropes that the writing team chose to tamper with should have been left alone. Take, for example, the choice to make the zombies run rather than walk. Rather than increase the tension, their speed takes the undead-ness out of their presence. There are few hand-to-hand battles, no grizzly images of zombies feasting on the weak and relatively few close-up shots of the flesh-eating menace. The zombies move in throngs, rushing and stampeding their way through major cities and over large barriers; they easily could have been replaced with swarms of bees for the same effect. Though action-packed, World War Z fails to build tension or surprise. It’s the embodiment of “too little, too late;” even if it had been released at the height of the zombie craze, it would have failed to compare to the originality and spectacle of other films. Hollywood, you’re kicking a dead horse. Leave the zombies to AMC’s The Walking Dead, where they eat the dead horses instead. MONSTERS UNIVERSITY. Even at its least fantastic, Pixar has never really let me down. They re-invented the concept sequels with the Toy Story franchise, and I didn’t hate either of the Cars movies
(despite their overuse of Larry the Cable Guy). So, I didn’t bat an eyelash at their venture into the world of prequels with Monsters University. Years before Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James “Sully” Sullivan (John Goodman) revolutionized the scare industry in Monsters Inc., they were nothing more than cocky freshmen in the Scare Program at the prestigious Monsters University. Like the multitude of collegiate films before it, Monsters University follows a basic formula: a frat full of unlikely outcasts must excel and outshine the popular frat in a contest of epic proportions. It’s a family friendly frat-fest, full of familiar faces, but it fails to follow in the footsteps of the first film. Monsters University is still better than most full-length, animated features, but it lacks the iconic chutzpah and charm of other Pixar films. Mike and Sully begin their higher education as adversaries, both battling their way to the top of the class. Their overly competitive antics lead to their expulsion from the Scare Program, and their only chance for redemption is winning the university’s annual Scare Games. In order to compete, they have to join a fraternity. Enter the unlikely outcasts. Statistical likelihood aside, the underdogs prevail and everyone learns something valuable and wholesome about themselves. In the realm of children’s movies, there’s really no reason to veer far from the traditional path of the underdog story. The constant cacophony of children’s cackling confirmed the cartoon’s capacity for charisma. A few chuckles and guffaws escaped my mouth, as well. All in all, though, Monsters University left me yearning for adorably heartbreaking character attachments I formed with Monsters Inc. The sweetest and most endearing moments of the first film were the scenes with Mike, Sully and their tod-
MovieTimes dler stowaway, Boo. Monsters University needed more moments of emotional connection like these to truly pull in the adult audience, hold their interest and ensure repeat viewings. Pixar, I still put more faith in you than I do Disney, but you need to get back into true form if you’re going to keep me. With heavy hitters like Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me) and Blue Sky Studios (Epic), you’re not the biggest fish in the little pond anymore.
