Meet our neighbor “I stop at all stop signs!” says Dina about riding her bike

and, of course, driving a car. “It may take me a bit more time, but it is the safest thing to do!” This is a family of outdoor enthusiasts: biking, fishing, crabbing, camping, clamming, antelope and chukar hunting and even blackberry picking. The children are a little young for most of those activities. Sabrina and Patricia do love picnics at the beach and river trips, but they are ecstatic about the child-size grocery carts at Murphy’s Markets! “We go just about every day,” says Dina. “We are Murphy’s junkies! We pick up buttermilk for special pancakes and everyone is so nice!” After spending 18 years near San Francisco while teaching, Dina says, “Now we are outside all the time. It is so gorgeous, green and lush.” And remember to really stop at stop signs!

From December 1 – 7, the Ladies of Second Street:


Editor: There on the cover of last week’s Journal was my long-gone tribe, smiling up out of the past.  I lived at the Lighthouse Ranch at the peak of the Jesus People movement —worked in the garden, sang with my “sisters” in the kitchen while laboring over cooking pots and mixing bowls so big they could have doubled as bathtubs. I had a tiny curtained bunk in the sisters’ dorm — a squat building that sat near the edge of the bluff, overlooking the ocean.   Was it utopia? Hardly. It was usually chilly and gray; mildew had to be fought back at every opportunity. People bickered over who got the last piece of toast or what had become of a particular pair of socks. No, not utopia. But uniquely memorable and dear? Indeed.  It was, for many of us, a final, heartfelt attempt to make good on the fading promises of the counterculture movement. In Jesus, we saw a way to hold onto the concept of oneness, harmony, love and service. It was a way to be a new and improved hippie. The Lighthouse Ranch haunts me. Not long ago I drove out and wandered The Land, as we called it then; ghosts were everywhere. Painted scriptures faded into the boards of the old brothers’ dorm and Psalm 40:2 was scrawled into a small cement slab: “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”   continued on next page

Autumn beguiles us in the manner of a softly rising romantic love, a royal prince-and-princess ardor that is unaware and unselfconscious, yet voluptuous with desire — ambrosial fruit eager for a French kiss. Our senses are bewitched, not only by autumn’s alluring raiment, but also by our childhood nostalgia for it: retrospective delight in the simplicity of a lone apple or a solitary stone; a special hush in the woods; the poignant call of a loon from the alcove of a hidden lake; the sight of a yellow school bus traversing a narrow strip of rain-soaked black macadam, its verges filigreed with glistening leaves of topaz, russet, woodbine and burnt umber. Autumn, Harvest Monarch, trails a retinue of mellowing orchards, drowsy vineyards, gilded hayricks, mist-streaked indigo sunsets and lowslung, old stone bridges that adorn empty, disconsolate roads. Colors leap in fountains of fireworks in dense forests. Summer crops are gathered in, haying and harvesting gain pace and rhythm, game is laid up in the hunter’s larder. Cider presses and fruit-picking energize the countryside in this season whose golden cornucopia so much depends on a red tractor sitting forlorn in a field of broken corn stubble and mud. Like first love, our nostalgia for the season is a will-o’-the-wisp: The feeling is only in ourselves — Queen Autumn plays Boucher’s Galatea to our Pygmalion. In our unrequited love for the season there reposes a sadness that is incomparably beyond melancholy and a good deal older than God.


Editor: There are local folks who take their visitors to Fern Canyon or Trinidad, but I usually take them to Table Bluff first when the weather cooperates. Great ocean and bay views including parts of the refuge, Eel River delta and beyond to the Wildcat range. On Thanksgiving Day, one brave soul jumped off (lifted off?) the cliff edge under the blossoming canopy of a paraglider, making lazy arcs over the dunes and then touching down with both feet on the roadway below. The members in the photos of the Gospel Outreach Outreach (“The Light on the Bluff,” Nov. 22) seemed healthy and in mostly good spirits. I would be interested to read from more former members about their experiences and how they fared afterwards. David Ammerman, Cutten

Humboldt’s retired assistant district attorney working from Southern California By Scottie Lee Meyers


sed to be when the Humboldt County Drug Task Force sought legal advice before executing a search warrant, it called a local 707 number to the District Attorney’s Office. Now task force members mostly dial a long distance number, and the county legal expert is 750 miles away, working remotely near Palm Springs. The man answering that phone is Wes Keat, who was Humboldt County’s assistant district attorney until he retired in August 2011 and moved to Southern California. The District Attorney’s Office rehired Keat part time in October after receiving about $30,000 in anti-drug abuse grant money from the sheriff’s office. It’s not uncommon for small counties to hire retired prosecutors for part-time work, said Scott Thorpe of the California District Attorney Association. “Sometimes it’s for a particular case, or sometimes it’s for types of cases. It runs the gamut and they work it out with their board of supervisors.” According to state law, said Thorpe, retired employees cannot work more than half time, and counties can further limit that amount. Keat was happy to return to work. He’s on call 24/7 to counsel law enforcement on searches and seizures. The Drug Task Force called him a couple weeks ago about the unique legal implications of searching a doctor’s office. The other half of the job is essentially paperwork. After catching the alleged bad guys, officers email Keat their arrest reports. Keat then reviews the strength of evidence for prosecution and decides what charges should be filed. It’s the same kind of stuff he was doing when he was the assistant district attorney, earning $120,000 a year. Except instead of working from a stuffy, fluorescent-lighted room in Eureka, he now works from his sunny home in Bermuda Dunes, where he has the patio door swung open, with the balmy breeze bringing in a citrus scent from the ruby red grapefruit tree in his backyard. And he doesn’t have

to wear a tie. Because of the nature of the work, Keat’s hours are sporadic, but he says the agreement is that he works about 10 hours a week (and cannot surpass 960 total hours), earning $49 an hour. That’s on top of a $5,000 a month pension he collects from the Public Employees Retirement System. Once the grant money is gone, so is the position. Then it’s time for prosecutors to cross fingers and hope more funding can be found.   In 2007, there were 15 attorneys in the DA’s office, according to current assistant district attorney Kelly Neely. “But due to budget cuts, the office has substantially less, and so the work that used to be done by many is done by few.” District Attorney Paul Gallegos will take whatever he can get at this point. He’s happy to have Keat back, alleviating the caseload of an already overworked staff, which now includes 11 attorneys total, plus Keat. Gallegos has criticized the Board of Supervisors for underfunding his office and not making public safety a bigger priority. Almost half of the DA’s budget is now made up of grant money, he said. “The fact is, I don’t have the funds to have an attorney to do what Wes does. … But I still have the obligation to get it done.” The sheriff office can arrest people all day long, Gallegos said, but unless an agency is funded to prosecute them, you’ve wasted money. By way of comparison, Gallegos points out that the Humboldt County Public Defender and Conflict Counsel offices have 14 attorneys combined to defend criminal cases. There are also a dozen or so private defense attorneys who work the courthouse. Worried about the workload, Gallegos told law enforcement officials back in May that his office might not be able to continue prosecuting nonviolent misdemeanors, but he later reversed that stand. Data from the California Department of Justice indicates that Gallegos’ office is

underfunded and understaffed compared to similar counties, as was first reported by the Times-Standard in July. Humboldt County spends about $2 million from its general fund on the district attorney’s office. That’s about 2 percent of the county’s entire $95 million general fund. Do the math and that comes out to an average of about $270 on prosecutions per criminal complaint sought by law enforcement. Mendocino and Lake Counties spend about 6 percent of their general funds, which calculates out to be roughly $749 and $1,000 respectively on prosecution for every criminal complaint sought. Crunching numbers from 2009 Department of Justice crime report — the most recent available — indicates that Humboldt County prosecutors appear to handle more felony and misdemeanor cases per lawyer than is recommended by the American Bar Association. And both Mendocino and Lake counties have more prosecutors in their respective district attorney’s offices. District 5 Supervisor Ryan Sundberg said he’s well aware of the funding gap, although comparisons with other counties might be inappropriate. “I know there’s a problem there and that they need more money. But if you look at the budget, we’ve cut every corner we could,” he said. He added that supervisors did authorize the DA to add a couple of non-attorney staff positions. Humboldt County Public Defender Kevin Robinson said the county’s arrangement to hire Keat remotely from Southern California hasn’t affected the courtrooms, and he doesn’t see how it could. As for Keat, when he’s not enjoying semi-retirement with his wife of 29 years, he’s editing 19th century newspaper stories for a digital newspaper archive. It’s his hobby. He’s made more corrections — by a lot — than any other volunteer helper at the California Digital Newspaper Collection. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012

A Song for Bill Every once in a while someone reads a story in the Journal and is inspired. We like it when that happens. An example is a song by former Humboldter Melody Walker, an “Americali” singer/songwriter who now lives in Richmond. (Walker was among those profiled in Herb Childress’ cover story from 2011, “Leaving.”) She explained, “My newest song ‘Billy the Champ’ was inspired by the great piece ‘Saga of an Ape’ by Daniel Mintz in the North Coast Journal about Bill the Chimp at the Sequoia Park Zoo. I used to go to the zoo a lot when I first moved to Humboldt and was especially fond of Bill and his curmudgeonly sass. When he died in 2007 this NCJ article told his life story so well and literally brought me to tears by the end, and I decided he definitely deserved a song. “It took me five years to write it, I guess, but here it is! We just recorded it for the first time, live at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, and it will be on our upcoming live CD to be released in early 2013.” Visit our website to hear her sing “Billy the Champ.” ● BEACHES, BIRDS, ENVIRONMENT, GOVERNMENT / BY HEIDI WALTERS / NOV. 21, 12:36 P.M.

Scare Crow Freaked-out opposition and stern eyebrow-raising amongst the citizenry has caused the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to drop its plan to poison crows and ravens on Clam Beach as a means to protect the threatened Western snowy plover. The plan — called an experiment by the Fish and Wildlife Service — was to plant avicide-laced chicken eggs on

the beach where plover-egg-plundering corvids are wont to roam. The Fish and Wildlife Service’s news release announcing its dropping of the plan states quite pointedly why it was considering such a severe measure: “Humboldt County’s Clam Beach has one of the most aggressive predation rates by crows and ravens on snowy plovers within the bird’s range. In the last 11 years, more than 70 percent of Pacific Coast snowy plover eggs along the northern-most California coast have been lost due to crow and raven predation.” You can see the motivation. At public gatherings to discuss the plan, the service said it had tried less extreme methods of corvid control, with limited success, including putting in better garbage receptacles at the beach, enclosing snowy plover nests in a way that only the plovers can get in and out of their nest areas, hazing ravens and crows with slingshots, and — in a brief experiment by a graduate student — staging a crow-killing in front of other crows then hanging the “slaughtered” (stuffed roadkill) bird from a pole. That scared some birds, but only in a small range. Now the service will go back to the arsenal to try to come up with a new, non-lethal plan — with the public’s help — for protecting plovers. Those who want to help develop a new plan — and we’re figuring that’s every one of you who squawked about the poison one — might want to go to the meetings the service

has set up: 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Nov.29 at the Humboldt County Agriculture Center, 5630 South Broadway in Eureka; and during the Dec. 12 McKinleyville Community Services District Board meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at Azalea Hall, 1620 Pickett Road in McKinleyville. In the meantime, we’ve heard a few ideas from wildlife professor John M. Marzluff at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle. We featured Marzluff in our story about smart corvids — Steller’s jays, in particular, and ravens and crows — called “Bright Bird,” back in June. He was incensed to hear about the poison plan. He said the service did not try hard enough to make a non-lethal approach work. And killing ravens and crows, he added, is not sustainable: “Some corvids will die. Other corvids will move in and take their place, likely right away. Plovers will still be eaten by corvids. Plovers will be eaten by other predators also.” He suggested a number of alternatives: taste-aversion conditioning of ravens and crows by planting fake plover eggs injected with vomit-inducing substances to turn the birds off — like Humboldt State researchers have been doing to stop jays from eating marbled murrelet eggs; human scarecrows — rangers who patrol the beach during plover season; more scary crow-death re-enactments to frighten the predators out of wanting to be on the beach; and even better garbage pick-up from the beach. Said Marzluff: “They probably haven’t tried dogs running the beach who are trained to chase corvids, either. Again, they need to be creative, not just reactive.” Marzluff scoffed at the service’s calling the poison plan an “experiment.” “No, that is not an experiment. Where

are the controls? Where is the replication? What is the design? It sounds to me like it is an attempt to see if poisoning would have an effect, but the only real way to do that is to have replicates in various areas and compare the plover success in areas with and without poison eggs.” So, let the creativity begin. ● CRIME, LAW, VICTIMS / BY RYAN BURNS / NOV. 20, 12:25 P.M.

Sheriff: Warren Murdered Dorothy Ulrich After an investigation that lasted nearly eight weeks, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has concluded that Jason Anthony Warren murdered a 47-year-old Hoopa woman named Dorothy Evelyn Ulrich on the morning of Sep. 27. The Sheriff’s Office has submitted its findings to the District Attorney and is requesting that charges of homicide and auto theft be filed against Warren. Warren has also been identified as a “person of interest” in a hit-and-run incident that occurred later the same day, leaving 40-yearold Suzie Seemann dead and two other women badly injured. The investigation into that incident is being handled by the California Highway Patrol. [Addendum: The Times-Standard published a short piece on Ulrich last month, with remembrances from her sister-in-law. The Two Rivers Tribune published an obituary.] The Sheriff’s Office press release is on our website. ●

Passing the Virtual Hat


Kickstarter and other crowd funding platforms scratch Humboldt’s creative itch


By Bob Doran


inger/guitar-plucker Sam Whitlach ended a set at the Jambalaya earlier this year in classic songwriter fashion, with a little pitch. If you like his songs, take some home on his CD. The album he recorded as A Man Named Samuel is full of good songs, but it has little to do with the music he’s playing now. The CD came out in 2006, so the songs were written years ago. “Yeah, that’s a problem,” he conceded in a conversation a few weeks later at a summer street fair in Arcata. Whitlach has plenty of new material, but not plenty of money to produce a new CD. What about crowd funding? Has he looked into Kickstarter or Indiegogo? He’d never heard of them. Kickstarter, Indiegogo and similar online companies offer a platform for artists and others to collect money from friends, family and even strangers to support their work. Users fill out a form, add photos, text or videos, and pay fees that can run around 10 percent of the total raised. In just a few years, crowd funding has begun changing the shape of the music scene in Humboldt, lessening the creative struggle at least a little, and playing midwife to more CDs than would have been produced otherwise. The source of extra money has been especially helpful here, where most performers work day jobs. But the money doesn’t just fly in on its own — musicians, artists and others have to solicit backing through social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. That can be a downside for those who don’t want to monetize their friends, or who, like Whitlach, haven’t had the time or interest so far. “I’m not that into Facebook,” he said, just as another local songwriter, Caitlin Jemma, happened by. Jemma financed her debut record with Kickstarter. She did not exactly ease his fears. “You have to be on Facebook a lot,” she said. “You really have to do a lot of networking. If you’re not on Facebook or Twitter, you’re not going to be able to promote your project.” Starting with her social network (she has around 600 Facebook friends) and reaching out via phone and email for pledges from family, friends and friends

of friends, she reached her goal in 30 days and received $1,000 — enough to pay for production of 1,000 copies of a CD she calls Home Means the Hills. She’s happy with how it turned out and is quick to recommend Kickstarter. “I’ve seen a lot friends be able to express themselves in ways they wouldn’t be able to without those funds, and not just in music, in all kinds of art,” she said.

Kickstarter was not the first

crowd funding platform; ArtistShare claims that title, and it’s a crowded field. There are dozens of competitors, many with different missions, collecting funds for educational projects, issue awareness, scientific research, nonprofits, those who need help with medical bills and even weddings and funerals. But Kickstarter is undeniably huge, the leading crowd funding site in Internet visits, and one of the few bold enough to release stats on how many people use it and how much they have raised. On a typical day, Kickstarter says, it has 3,500 live projects in the United States and United Kingdom. “We’ve had more than $400 million pledges since we launched, more than 30,000 successfully funded projects,” says Justin Kazmark. He’s been company spokesman since Kickstarter launched in 2009 (with a half-year break to hike the Pacific Crest Trail). Unlike the other two most-visited crowd funding sites, Kickstarter has an application process that screens out many endeavors right from the start: No charities, no scholarships, no raffles, no real estate and no open-ended proposals. “We have a specific focus on creativity,” said Kazmark. “We believe creativity deserves its own space.” Funding is limited to “creative projects” with the terms “creative” and “project” key in defining what’s approved or rejected by staffers. “Whatever it is you want to fund, it has to fit into one of 13 categories, everything from arts, music and comics to food, games and fashion,” said Kazmark, who is one of the few dozen staffers manning Kickstarter offices in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. And it has to be a “project” with a specific creative goal. It’s mostly left up to the creator to determine what that means. Kazmark explained, “We’re not making any judgments on your work — we don’t tell you, ‘Lose the bassist,’ or ‘You said this is going to be a drama, but it would work better as a comedy and if you change it, we’ll let you on.’ No aesthetic judgments. Just, does this meet our



guidelines? If it does, it’s fine.” Even that is too much restriction for some, who complain in online forums that they don’t like to jump through hoops or get approval or be limited to accepting payments only through Amazon. And the company’s format — set a dollar goal, set a deadline, take pledges, and if you don’t reach your goal, no money changes hands — has fans and detractors. Some say the “all or nothing” urgency helps spur more donations, while others who have ongoing projects would rather get some money than no money at all. But whatever its plusses and minuses, Kickstarter so far seems to be the most popular crowd funding resource in Humboldt, fueling everything from pinups to El Pulpo.

Molly and Tyson Ritter

dreamed up their Pissed Off Pinups Calendar after browsing through a coffee table book with 1950s-era pinup art by Gil Elvgren. One image showed a woman being splashed by a passing truck. She coyly raises her skirt and puckers her lips. It was sexy, but, Molly figured, unrealistic. “She’d be irritated and maybe shake her fist at the truck.” She wanted to create an alternative pinup calendar, to show women as actual people. Since she’s a model (See “Crossing the Line from Model to Muse,” Nov. 1) and her husband Tyson is a professional pho-

tographer, they had a good start. They began shooting photos early in 2012 while trying to figure out where they’d get around $3,500 for props, costumes and printing. Tyson had seen some Kickstarter projects online; he showed Molly, and they launched their fundraising campaign in late May. Thirty days later they’d hit their goal — plus a little extra — taking in $3,603. Most of the backers were local or friends they contacted on the web, but Molly was happy to find supporters she did not know who’d discovered their project via Kickstarter’s own network. The Ritters had 500 copies of their calendar printed and rolled it out at Arts Alive in October, along with placing it in book stores, vintage shops and even a food truck, The Wandering Wienie Wagon. You can also track the project down through its Kickstarter page (successful or not, the pitch pages are eternal). The Ritters have sold about half already and are hoping the rest move over the holidays. And even artists with plenty of name recognition find uses for crowd funding. Pretty much everyone in Humboldt is familiar with Duane Flatmo. His murals are everywhere you look in Eureka and Arcata, and his Kinetic Sculptures — giant lobsters and fire-breathing dragons and the like — are always among the stars of the Kinetic Grand Championship. Flatmo also has become a major presence at Burning Man, the annual art fest in Northern Nevada. Look at the photo spreads on the event in Time or The Atlantic and you’ll see his work. After a couple of years of wheeling around the playa on his Kinetic Sculptures, Flatmo assembled a local crew to craft an elaborate “art car” on the back of a flatbed truck continued on next page • NORTH COAST JOURNAL • THURSDAY, NOV. 29, 2012


continued from previous page and took it to Burning Man in 2011. The fire-spouting octopus El Pulpo Mecanico was a big hit. “It took around $15 grand to build it and get it down there,” said Flatmo, noting, “a lot of people pitched in.” When it was time to return for Burning Man 2012, he needed money again, specifically to ship the machine to Nevada and to pay for propane. He didn’t want to put the bill on a credit card. Instead, with help from an actor friend, Joshua Levine, who had experience using Kickstarter for film financing, he set up a project. The goal: raise $4,000 in less than a month to support taking El Pulpo back to Burning Man. “We ended up getting $6,700 in pledges,” with half that coming from just three backers inspired by a special reward. Flatmo explained, “We said for $1,000 we’ll pick you up at your camp with four of your friends and take you out on the playa for a ride. We even supplied a bottle of champagne.” His team limited the offer to just three

backers since, he said, “We didn’t want to spend all of our time at Burning Man giving people rides.” Among the takers was Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, who paid for a ride for some friends. Cohen actually suggested something bigger for El Pulpo. He’s involved in the Occupy movement and saw the fire-spewing octopus as some sort of metaphor for voracious corporate greed (think Sinclair Lewis). Flatmo declined. “I didn’t want to be seen as the bad guy, the bad octopus,” he said. His Kickstarter campaign ended up covering the whole trip, including the propane, shipping and some incidentals. “We had something like 250 backers who gave $25. A few friends put in $1 or $5 just because they wanted to be part of it.” Everywhere they went on the playa, people would come up and tell them they were Kickstarter supporters — they’d contributed to bring the machine back — and they were happy to be part of something so cool.

Of course, not all campaigns are

successful. More than half of the projects begun on Kickstarter fail to receive any funding at all, because they fall short of their dollar goal. Among those was a school lunch guide written by members of Locally Delicious, a group that promotes local, healthy foods. The authors launched a Kickstarter project in June seeking $15,000 to pay for printing their next book, Lunchbox Envy, “a how-to guide for creating healthy, sustainable, affordable lunches for kids and families of all income levels.” (See Table Talk, page 16.)

They collected pledges from 100 backers, but it only added up to $5,706 — so they got nothing. What went wrong? “For one thing, I think we asked for too much money,” said Suzanne Simpson, one of the authors. “The other thing was, well, we’re social media luddites. We all friended everyone we knew, but personally, I don’t really like Facebook that much. It takes so much time.” Simpson figured Facebook was about telling people what you had for breakfast, something she wasn’t ready to do — even if her breakfasts are amazingly good, full of fresh local food.

The Locally Delicious crew felt good about getting those pledges for more than $5,000, even though the money didn’t materialize. They found other funding, including advance sales money from the California Center for Rural Policy in association with the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services’ CalFresh program. And in the end, they got much of the money pledged via Kickstarter by following up outside the system, said Simpson. “We contacted the donors who pitched in on Kickstarter directly and asked if they’d contribute to Locally Delicious Inc. Most of them did. It all worked out.”

Among other Humboldters who’ve tried but failed with Kickstarter are a Fortuna natural food store, Humboldt Healthy Food. In January, the proprietor started a campaign seeking $23,000 to expand operations with an in-house kitchen. While the project garnered $1,286 in pledges, it failed to meet its goal and the store got nothing. And McKinleyville artist Susan Fox found a few backers willing to help finance her expedition to Mongolia to paint wild horses, but she fell far short of her $5,000 goal, so Kickstarter wasn’t any help. (Not that it stopped her from going.) Still, local Kickstarter successes keep continued on next page

continued from previous page on coming. Singer Joanne Rand collected just over $2,000 last year to mix, master and duplicate her 12th CD, and recently started another Kickstarter campaign to fund her 13th album. Actor/playwright Jacqueline Dandeneau raised $5,000 to take the show Women of the Northwest on the road after a run at the Arcata Playhouse. Chocolatier and baker Cassie Forrington, surpassed her $2,000 goal by more than 50 percent (she got $3,375) to help start Boujie Baking Company, making candies and desserts using, in part, local craft beers. And baker Rhonda Wiedenbeck raised money for a lightweight trailer to deliver her Beck’s Bakery products, breads made from locally grown grains, stone milled on site. Wiedenbeck, who hadn’t been much of a social networker before she started her business, was surprised by the customer loyalty that can come from a crowd of financial supporters. “Getting the money to buy the trailer was awesome,” she said, “but it was so much more — the marketing side floored me. Now people feel this ownership in my business. People feel like they’re invested, so they want to help get my bread in new places.” And although some business advisers initially discouraged her from expecting much from Kickstarter, now the local Small Business Development Center is using Wiedenbeck’s Kickstarter video in presentations it gives to help people looking for startup funding.

A Guide to Crowd Funding Dozens, perhaps hundreds, of crowd funding websites help people drum up financial support for everything from creative projects and social causes to medical bills and disaster relief. Based on volume of web traffic, Kickstarter and Indiegogo are the top two, followed by GoFundMe, according to the Internet ranking site Alexa. All are online payment portals that collect funds through a third-party service. The sites charge a fee, and typically so do the payment services. Combined, the fees can run around 10 percent of the total raised and sometimes more. Crowd funding sites follow two basic models — all or nothing or keep whatever you get. With all or nothing sites, supporters make a payment pledge, but aren’t billed unless the project reaches or passes its dollar goal within an allotted time. With others, all money donated (minus the fees) goes to the project creator, whether a goal is met or not. Earlier this year, Time Magazine listed four crowd funding sites as among the best for collecting money from friends, fans, relatives and strangers. They are Kickstarter (specializing in creative projects), Gambitious (specializing in games), and Rock the Post (specializing in viable business ideas), and Indiegogo (founded with a focus on film, but now wide-ranging). The field has seen some legal scuffles, among them a patent suit by Kickstarter, which claimed a company called ArtistShare had tried for an overly broad patent. ArtistShare, one of the early pioneers in crowd funding, began in the early

Pays: Users have three options; All or nothing, keep everything and get each donation immediately, or for charities, keep everything and get paid monthly. Approval process: Projects don’t have to qualify, and can range from medical bills to schools to sports teams to honeymoons, but users are required to accept payment through WePay.

switched to Indiegogo for its financial flexibility. “The main difference is the all or nothing part,” said Walker. With an Indiegogo project, fundraisers can opt for “flexible

funding,” which allows them to keep any money they raise. That relieves some pressure, but there’s another key difference. ”With Kickstarter, they hold the money until the campaign is done,” Walker explained, “but with Indiegogo you get the money as soon it comes in, so we were able to get right into our project.” Walker’s switch was inspired in part by her friends The Bucky Walters, who used Indiegogo to gather funding for a 2011 tour. The band did not reach its $5,000 goal, but since the musicians opted for flexible funding, they still got to keep the $1,190 that came in. Also on Indiegogo, chocolatier Elissa Verdillo raised $1,045 of the $4,000 she had wanted to rent a Victorian with a certified commercial kitchen to make her Cacao Cocoon Chocolates. And Carrie Ferguson, born and raised in Arcata but now living on the East Coast, just completed an Indiegogo campaign to pay for her next record, The List of Whales. Among the rewards offered by Ferguson was a personal concert at your house, where she would hand deliver a cake she’s made. (“I make great cakes!” she claims.) That reward was only available “within a two-hour radius of Northampton, Mass. or Arcata, Calif.” since “cake does not travel so well.” Perhaps the most successful locally based crowd funding campaign also used Indiegogo. That was a project by the Move to Amend/Democracy Unlimited office in Eureka, conducted with anti-corporate ice cream magnate Ben Cohen. “Stampede to Amend: Fund the Amend-O-Matic,” aimed to stage a national tour with a machine that would stamp messages on dollar bills, calling for a constitutional amendment to reduce the role of money in politics. Move to Amend raised $36,738 — far exceeding its $20,000 goal. But the national tour had to be scrapped because of problems with the van, organizer Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap explained in a Nov. 1 let-

ter to supporters. What happens to the money raised? Move to Amend says there are plans in the works for a 2013 tour, and the group has dropped the price on its rubber stamps. Indiegogo’s website makes it clear there’s no guarantee that any project will carry out its plans. Furthermore, “Any perks offered to you are between you and the project entity only, and Indiegogo does not guarantee that perks will be delivered or satisfactory to you.” Kickstarter uses similar “buyer beware” language.

Whichever site people

use, all agree that it can be a challenge to get the word out, especially with a goal that looms just 30 days away. (Kickstarter recommends 30-day projects but allows up to 60 days.) It wasn’t easy for the Arcata Playhouse’s Dandeneau, even though the Playhouse has an established social network and most of the actresses and creators involved in Women of the Northwest were on Facebook. “The most important thing came toward the end when we still had a way to go to reach our goal,” she said. “I got online every day and blogged about the project and told people what was going on and how exciting it was.” Her pitch was more focused on patronage than on rewards. “In the end I think people do it because they want to, not because they get something — for a

theatre show anyway,” she said. “It worked for us.” Most of her backers did not even want the small rewards offered, things like faux campaign buttons and tote bags. She only offered tickets to the show to those who pledged $50 or more. “We describe Kickstarter as an intersection of commerce and patronage,” said Kazmark, emphasizing that it was never intended as a retail platform. While backers might get a CD or a book as a reward, that’s not the point. As Kazmark put it, “You are joining a creator on their journey as they bring something new to life,” and you become part of the process. “It’s not too far from arts patronage, but it’s a new way for people to come together and make things.” And while crowd funding sites add flexibility for people to pursue their passions, they haven’t replaced any of the older, face-to-face options, from friends to shows to that day job. Caitlin Jemma has another pocketful of songs and is ready to make her second CD, but she’s decided against using crowd funding. “It’s too early after the other one,” she figures, so she’s putting on a series of shows at local clubs instead. Her first, early in November, took in $400, so she’s well on her way. The prolific songwriter just might go back to crowd sourcing for her third album. And Sam Whitlach? He’s been ramping up his Facebook activity and, yes, he’s thinking about crowd funding to get some of his new songs out into the world. l

May I See What You Have in Your Lunchbox? LunchBox Envy book signings in December:

By Simona Carini


hy cook? Cooking is a satisfying experience. Planning your meals and budgeting your time makes it even more so. … Using whole, nutritious foods and cooking from scratch will cost less and be healthier for you and your family. — from LunchBox Envy I did not learn to cook until I was an adult. My mother was a stay-at-home mom who devoted a fair amount of time to cooking, particularly lunch, but she preferred to cook for me instead of with me. I often wonder how things would be now had I been allowed to experiment in the kitchen from an early age, when “failure” was not a word in my vocabulary and every new step brought the excitement of an upcoming adventure. Cooking is a great activity for children: While it allows them to be creative, it also asks them to channel their energy and pay attention to details. And it requires them to use math skills when they measure ingredients. I believe that learning to cook should be part of every child’s education. The book LunchBox Envy: An adventure in healthy eating for kids and families offers help to families who want to put cooking and eating on a healthier and also more efficient footing. The whole family can learn and have fun fol-

Japanese griddle cakes anyone? Or may I tempt you with some three-color coleslaw? In addition to photographs supporting recipes and concepts, LunchBox Envy is enriched by illustrations, graphic design and a graphic novel by a group of talented high school students from the Arcata Arts Institute. The long list of people on the acknowledgement page shows how the Heirloom Tomatoes have drawn from the expertise in the whole community to make something for Humboldt County and beyond. LunchBox Envy advocates early involvement of children in their nutrition, from food purchase and preparation to food growing. The book also proposes collaboration between parents and children to make the process of shopping for food and preparing meals a family activity where children are involved. At the same time, the book provides useful tips for parents to improve the quality of their food purchases with an eye to expenses. The topic of children’s nutrition cannot be addressed by keeping the kids out of the room while the adults debate: The sooner children are brought into the discussion, the better for them. Reduced to its essence, this is about education, and it cannot be limited to the classroom, but must acquire a comprehensive character. Creative approaches that work with children instead of fighting against them are necessary. Preparing an enviable lunch is a worthy goal that children should claim as their own, something that would get other students’ attention, that nourishes them, giving them enough energy for the day and protecting their health for the long run. Connecting or re-connecting a child to his/her nutrition is a gift that lasts a lifetime — of health. ●

New teaching studio and gallery opening in Eureka By Jason Marak


hat was once Lee’s Jewelers at 526 Fifth St. in Eureka has been transformed. In place of jewelry cases and browsing customers is Eureka Studio Arts, a teaching studio/exhibition space co-founded by local artists Micki Flatmo and Linda Mitchell. They hope it will become a place where established artists and students of all ages can come together to teach and learn about the visual arts. The school’s December opening marks the culmination of a project that began 10 years ago, born partly out of a need for space. Flatmo and Mitchell have taught painting classes for years in their small, private studios, but demand and limited space led to waiting lists. As they started to explore the possibility of a larger, shared teaching space, they kept hearing that other teaching artists had similar needs. In response, Flatmo and Mitchell expanded their idea and created Eureka Studio Arts, hoping it will become a community arts destination. “It’s time to just step up and say we can do this — and we also just think it’ll be fun!” Flatmo said. “We’re really happy to give artists teaching jobs,” said Mitchell. Flatmo explained that artists can usually only get a handful of students into their studios, limiting the amount of money they can make per class. The spacious Studio Arts building will enable class sizes of 15-20 students, and that means more money for the teaching artists and greater availability of classes for students. It wasn’t just the need for space that spurred Flatmo and Mitchell to create

Eureka Studio Arts. They also saw the teaching studio as a way to expand their own continuing education: Instead of having to travel all over the country to take workshops with renowned artists, they would bring the artists to Humboldt. “We have such an unbelievable resource — the natural beauty of the area is extraordinary,” Flatmo said. “So people from all over the world will want to come teach here.” With a fully formed vision for Studio Arts in mind, Flatmo and Mitchell set about finding just the right location. It wasn’t easy. When 526 Fifth St. became available, they jumped at the opportunity. “We liked it because it was funky,” said Mitchell — and the price was right. But the building needed some serious TLC. As anyone who has ever remodeled a kitchen, let alone renovated an entire building, will tell you, things don’t always go as planned. When asked if the renovations went smoothly, Flatmo and Mitchell, both in paint-spattered, drywall-dusted clothes, laughed the laugh of people trying not to cry. The renovation took twice as long (and was twice as expensive) as they anticipated. They had to delay their opening, originally scheduled for November. But thanks to the help and support of many relatives and friends (and one big painting party) there is light at the end of the tunnel and the team’s enthusiasm remains high. Its founders plan to have Studio Arts offer ongoing classes on different aspects of drawing and painting, as well as shorter seminars and workshops on different subjects and mediums. Some classes are

already scheduled through May. “We’ll have places for life drawing to be done, painting to be done,” Flatmo explained. There are also plans in the works for youth programs. Mitchell and Flatmo hope the school helps foster a sense of community among the artists teaching the courses. They also want the school to serve as a centralized resource for area students — a place where students can come to take a wide variety of visual art classes or, if the class they want is not offered, find out where they can take it. As Mitchell and Flatmo envision it, each month will begin with an instructors’ exhibition introducing prospective students and the general public to the current instructors’ works. Ultimately, they are open to letting the community dictate the direction Studio Arts takes. “We’ll find out what it is that people really want from us,” said Flatmo, and they expect that the school will take on a life of its own. In broad strokes, Mitchell imagines the space “full of people, full of life, full of art,” and Flatmo heartily agrees. Eureka Studio Arts will have its grand opening in conjunction with Arts! Alive on Dec. 1. Artists Gus Clark, Judy Evenson, Joan Gold, Micki Flatmo, Linda Mitchell, Kathy O’Leary, Rachel Schlueter and Stock Schlueter will exhibit work and be on hand to talk about upcoming classes and workshops they have scheduled at the studio. The opening will also feature a painting demonstration by Gus Clark. For more information, contact Eureka Studio Arts at 707-440-9027 or online at ●

Chris Robinson Brotherhood photo by Alissa Anderson

On the Wild Frontier Chris Robinson Brotherhood, plus Charles Bradley, White Manna and friends, New Riders, EDM, reggae and Xmas By Bob Doran


ack in the mid-1980s, a couple of Georgia boys, Chris Robinson and his younger brother Rich, started a high school rock band called Mr. Crowe’s Garden. By the end of the decade they’d changed that name to The Black Crowes and hit the big time playing solid southerntinged blues rock and winning fans in the Deadhead/jamband world. A couple of hiatuses found the brothers pursuing solo careers, each with his own band. Most recently, in 2011, Chris assembled The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, aka CRB, with Black Crowes bandmate Adam MacDougall on keys and guitarist Neal Casal from Ryan Adams’ band The Cardinals among the players. In June of this year CRB released its first album, Big Moon Ritual, on the fan-supported label ArtistDirect (see this week’s cover story), following in September with a companion piece, The Magic Door. In an interview with ArtistDirect, Robinson said his mission with CRB was to create a “farm-to-table psychedelic band,” an apt description for a jamming organic rock ‘n’ soul combo drawing on ‘60s S.F./L.A. psychedelia. “What are we trying to do? Are we trying to have a hit record? Are we trying to be on the radio?” asked Robinson rhetorically, answering, “I don’t think that’s anything in our collective consciousness.” He continued, “In this day and age, the

music business is talent shows featuring people who have fucking incredibly white teeth telling other people who desperately want to be famous they’re good or bad. Let people be interested in that, while the rest of us live on the outskirts of town in artist communes doing things everyone else only dreams about. The wild frontier is in the nether regions. That’s where we find ourselves and where our inspiration and drive come from.” You can get a glimpse of that wild frontier up close and personal when CRB stops off in Arcata for a Thursday show at Humboldt Brews. You’ll find a noisier sort of psyche rock from even deeper in the nether regions that Thursday night at The Works, where White Manna plays host to Rose Windows from Seattle, San Francisco’s Buzzmutt and a new local outfit called Chong fronted by guitarist Anthony Taibi (from White Manna). Meanwhile that Thursday at Nocturnum, legendary British producers Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley, aka Stanton Warriors, headline an EDM bash with S.F. basshead Noah D and Humboldt’s own Touch and Andreas. More EDM Friday night as Arcata’s Far North Climbing Gym turns into party central with sets by Wrye, DAT-1, OnHell, Abel and Datablend celebrating the release of This Is Grindhouse, a dark electro 12-inch by Wrye

including remixes by DAT-1 and OnHell. It’s a pretty good weekend for jam fans: Friday David Nelson and New Riders of the Purple Sage return to HumBrews for another round of stony country-rock. The Fickle Hill Billies open with some psychedelic jams. Then on Saturday, the semi-related jamband Moonalice (including players from the David Nelson Band) plays an all ages fundraiser for the Bridgeville VFD at the Van Duzen River Grange in Carlotta. Showtime is early (7:30 p.m.); dinner is available for an extra $10. Can’t make it out Highway 36? Not to worry, the tech-savvy Moonalice streams all its shows live online at www. For pure, authentic, unadulterated soul you have Charles Bradley returning to The Depot Monday night with Menahan Street Band. After a hard knock life growing up in Florida and Brooklyn, Bradley bounced around the country working as a cook while pursuing a musical dream, doing James Brown covers under the name Black Velvet. He eventually made his way back to Brooklyn. That’s where he met Gabriel Roth of Daptone Records, who put him together with guitarist Thomas Brenneck, leader of the retro-soul/funk combo Dirt Rifle and The Bullets. Daptone released a couple of singles by Charles Bradley and The Bullets before most of the band shifted toward Latin/Afrofunk as Budos Band. Brenneck pulled together friends from Antibalas, El Michels Affair and Daptone house band The Dap-Kings to form Menahan Street Band. Bradley started pouring his heart and soul into songs like “The World (Is Going Up In Flames),” and at the age of 62 he was soon on his way with a full-length album, No Time For Dreaming. A documentary about his life, Soul of America, is making waves on the festival circuit — we’ll undoubtedly have to wait until it’s on video to see it. In the meantime, go see Bradley sing — he’s the real deal. On the reggae front, East Humboldt rootsmen Woven Roots play at Jambalaya Friday night to mark the release of a new CD, Respect All Things, a collection of original songs drawing inspiration “from living close to the earth in the beautiful woodlands of the Pacific Northwest.” Same Friday at the Red Fox Tavern, The Highlife Band from Seattle explores similar roots reggae regions, adding jazz elements. Up on campus Saturday, at the Van Duzer, the panoramic Humboldt State Calypso Band has a joint show with the HSU Percussion Ensemble, a program that shifts from the classic Balinese “Monkey Chant” to music by John Cage and, of course, steel drums. “Siberian surf rock” combo Igor and The Red Elvises returns to the Riverwood Inn for a Saturday dance party. (Warning, it

might be sold out.) Also on Saturday, Polecat, a red-hot Americana/stomp-grass/world music band from Bellingham plays at Humboldt Brews. Portland band-o-the-week: Bison Bison, which offers “brain-crushing, sludge-trudging, diesel-driven rock and roll” at the Alibi Saturday night with like-minded locals Indianola opening. Get in the Christmas spirit Saturday at the Red Fox at the second annual “Music For Kids Toys For Tots Toy Drive,” an eclectic, multi-faceted night with music by Hella Kinetic, Children Of The Sun, Vidagua, Hiway, Dirty Rats, Area Sound, C Baker, Kiki, Dot Smith, The Hip Hop Lounge and “special guests.” The lovely and talented Sherae O’Shaughnessy serves as emcee. Sonny Wong and Sheik will have a live graffiti duel, then auction off the results. Admission is a new unwrapped toy and/or a $5 donation “to help the kids of Humboldt County have a good holiday.” (Lest there be any confusion we should note that this is in a tavern, so it’s a 21 and over event.) Saturday’s Arts Alive earlier in the evening means all sorts of music in Old Town. The Vance Hotel has a Christmas tree lighting party with jazzy music by Bob Ebenstein plus the swinging sounds of Lizzie and The Moonbeams and the very soulful True Gospel Singers. The Eureka Inn is reviving its Xmas tree tradition that night with a party featuring Santa and barbershop harmonies by The Humboldt Harmonaires. The night before in the Inn’s Palm Lounge (as in Friday), it’s perhaps the polar opposite as Charlotte from The Lost Luvs and Merrick from La Dolce Video and Starving Weirdos celebrate their birthdays with a swanky “Eurotrash Bash,” featuring retro music by The Luvs and trashy DJ sets. “Eurotrash attire is required (unless you want to be glared at and forced to buy us drinks),” demands Merrick. Boise’s self-described “new-timey, postretro, pre-apocalyptic, southern Appalachian, gypsy porch swing” quartet Jonathan Warren and The Billy Goats hits the Red Fox Tuesday. Wednesday at Humboldt Brews it’s the “Farmageddon Tour 2012” with Boulderbased country-disco meets rootsy jamgrass combo Grant Farm on the road with Huckle, a NorCal trio led by a guy named Huckle who plays slide guitar and sings kinda like Jack Johnson. The bands are collecting non-perishable food for local food banks; donate a couple of items and Huckle will give you a CD in trade.  Earlier that night at Mad River Brewing Company UKEsperience plays a Pints For Nonprofits thing with proceeds going to Food for People. You could hit both events and be double sure some hungry person gets a meal. l • North Coast Journal • Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012

Weed: Where We’re At We had our shot. In 2010, California voters had a historic chance to regulate, control and tax marijuana and put our state on the fast track to weedtopia. Oh, man, especially for us here in HumCo, wouldn’t that have been something? We could have cashed in on that Humboldt brand and secured the future of our sushi restaurants for generations to come. Let the good times roll … a doobie! (Sorry.) But we all know how that ended. Prop 19 was defeated 54 to 46 percent. Then, in this recent election thang, Washington and Colorado beat us to the honor of being the state(s) to end marijuana prohibition. In short, damn. But on the bright side, at least as a nation we’re on the right trajectory, right? This would be a great time for a book about the social history of cannabis in America and our growing populist revolt against the drug war. And, hey! On Friday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m, author Martin A. Lee

wisps into Northtown Books to sign and discuss his latest word brick, Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana — Medical, Recreational and Scientific. Lee wrote the book Acid Dreams, which looked at the history of LSD. He is a co-founder of the media bias watch group FAIR and director of Project CBD, which reports on cannabis science, and he writes for the weedy outlets O’Shaughnessy’s and So he’ll undoubtedly have plenty to say about the state of marijuana laws. Lee will also be discussing Smoke Signals on Saturday, Dec. 1, at Humboldt State NORML’s event at the Goodwin Forum on the HSU campus. Lee’s talk is at 4 p.m. and will be followed at 6 p.m. by a screening of local activist Darryl Cherney’s film Who Bombed Judi Bari?

book Presidential Retreats: Where the Presidents Went and Why They Went There By Peter Hannaford — Simon & Schuster

Presidential Retreats, written by Peter Hannaford, is  an entertaining and easy read which highlights the life  and achievements of each U.S. president, how and why  he chose to retreat from Washington, where he went  and what the reader would see on a visit. During the nation’s first century presidents retreated  to their homes. Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Grove was  the first presidential residence designed explicitly to be  a retreat. Jefferson used it for the rest of his life to get  away from the crowds visiting Monticello. This pattern was changed by Lincoln, whose mobility was restricted by the Civil War. Since then every  president has chosen a retreat in addition to his home.  Hoover was the first to have a retreat built at taxpayers’  expense — a policy reversed by Franklin D. Roosevelt,  who sold it and settled into what was originally a boy’s  camp, now known as Camp David. From Washington’s Mount Vernon to today’s Camp  David, each chapter is self-contained, detailing each  president’s choice of retreat and how he used it. Readers  can easily skip around to whatever interests them most. Beginning with Mount Vernon, Hannaford leads the  reader on a tour of John Adams’ Peacefield in Massachusetts; Jefferson’s Poplar Forest plantation; Andrew  Jackson’s Rip Raps; Abe Lincoln’s Soldiers’ Home; Grant’s  rented house in Long Branch, New Jersey, and subsequent  presidents who retreated to Long Branch; Teddy Roosevelt’s Sagamore Hill; Hoover’s Camp Rapidan; FDR’s family  estates; JFK’s Hyannis Port compound; LBJ’s Texas ranch;  Nixon’s retreats in Key Biscayne and San Clemente; Reagan’s Rancho del Cielo; the senior Bush compound near  Kennebunkport and the junior Bush ranch in Crawford. While the public is more aware of Mount Vernon  and the 13 official presidential libraries, which attract 5  million visitors a year, this book may attract more visitors to the retreats which are open to the public. The book is perfect for presidential history buffs  and can easily be used as a travel reference. It includes  contact information, current tour schedules, and website addresses for each site open to the public, and  a map identifying the location of each retreat. (Only  three retreats are in California and none are open to  the public.)  Hannaford, a Eureka resident, is president of Hannaford Enterprises, a public relations consulting firm he  created in 1998. He was co-director of issues and research  for Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign in 1976, and senior communications advisor for Reagan’s 1980 campaign.  He has written 11 books, six of them on Reagan. — Sam H. Clauder II Hannaford will be joining other local authors at a book signing at Eureka Books during Arts Alive on Saturday night, and he’ll lecture at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2, at Old Town Coffee and Chocolates in Eureka.

They’ve ‘Found It’ If, like me, you happen to be blessed to count a few smart people as your amigos — solid four, I reckon — you’ve undoubtedly heard over and again that TED talks are the actual reason the Internet was invented. The slick, succinct talks featuring camera-friendly experts highlighting “ideas worth sharing” are a well of forward-thought and (usually) more provoking than kitten videos. In the last several years, the format has been extended to the TEDx brand — smaller, self-organized events meant to provide TED-ish experiences at a local level. And guess what: We’s got one coming up! This Sunday, Dec. 2, fill your noggin with TEDxEureka being held at the Arcata Theatre Lounge (ahem) at 1 p.m. Fifteen local speakers — authors, scientists, artists — are scheduled to expand on the theme “I found it!” Here’s the list of your neighbors doing the finding: Barry Evans, former NPR science commenter and our North Coast Journal Field Notes columnist. Monica Stephens, assistant HSU professor specializing in geography. Lynette Mullen, local Native American historian. Scott Greacen, former executive director of EPIC and current ED of Friends of the Eel River. Ray Raphael, author of A People’s History of the American Revolution. Sheri Woo, civil engineer and environmental science writer. Garth Johnson, local artist and author of Creative Reuse. Jennifer McMahon, founder of Humboldt Roller Derby and owner of Primal Decor. Ellen Johnson, Northern California representative of Safe Kids Now. Scott “Q” Marcus, “thin”spirational speaker. Dr. Michael Fratkin, palliative medicine physician. Brent Eviston, architectural drafter, illustrator and figure drawing artist. Forrest Lewis, Arcata High senior and editor of the AHS Pepperbox. Tami Matsumoto, professor of mathematics at College of the Redwoods. Michael Fields, founding member of Dell’Arte. That’s a lot of finding! Tickets have likely sold out at this point, but thanks to the series of tubes you’ll be able to stream the talks online at — Andrew Goff

Burning Bright

Ang Lee ponders god through the eye of the tiger By John J. Bennett

Reviews LIFE OF PI. It’s been years since I read Yann Martel’s 2001 novel, but I remember generally enjoying it, with a few reservations. And that’s more or less how I feel about director Ang Lee and writer David Magee’s adaptation. It’s bright and imaginative but loses points for its inappropriately conventional structure. The framing story — of a middle-aged Pi (Irrfan Khan) recounting the harrowing tale of a shipwreck in his youth to a white-bread novelist (Rafe Spall) — feels clumsy and unnecessary. Once the visually stunning flashback sequences start, each return to that framing story breaks the momentum and takes the audience out of the central narrative. Pi, short for Piscine Molitor Patel, grows up theologically curious on the grounds of a zoo in French-colonized Pondicherry, India. When social unrest threatens the well-being of his family, Pi’s entrepreneurial father brokers a deal to sell the animals and relocate to Canada. But harsh seas interfere, and Pi’s family and most of the animals are lost. Pi becomes a castaway on a life boat in the middle of the ocean,

accompanied by a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Most of the narrative concerns Pi’s struggle for survival and his meditations on the nature of god, meaning of life, existence of a divine spark and so on. Thematically this stuff worked better in the novel. But here, at least, it provides Lee with a canvas for some of the most visually exciting filmmaking of his career. The movie’s middle section is filled with painterly, psychedelic compositions, many of which will probably end up replayed on a loop in dark, giggly college dorm rooms for years to come. Suraj Sharma, as young Pi, nicely pulls off the herculean task of acting solo through the majority of the movie. And the CGI, production design and cinematography — including some clever uses of 3D — cohere beautifully, at times brilliantly. It’s all very dazzling, but ultimately the banal structure, along with the too-pat handling of profound existential questions, really put me off. PG. 127m. RED DAWN. Like most of his work, writer/director John Milius’ 1984 version of this story was arch, strident and couched in masculine ideology. To its credit, the

Movie Times original Red Dawn survives as a cultural document: a paranoid fantasy born of the then-decades-old Cold War. At the time, American culture was saturated with fear of Soviet aggression and nuclear proliferation. While it could be argued that we’re living out the legacy of that era, the remake of Milius’ movie doesn’t really touch on the contemporary global situation beyond clumsy exposition. That and the fact that the movie is generally miscalculated and miscast ensure that it will have zero resonance and very little popular appeal. Don’t get me wrong; Milius’ story is not without its shortcomings. His puffed-chest philosophizing can make his movies overbearing and occasionally cartoonish. That’s certainly true of Red Dawn, but at least his version had philosophy in play. Beyond the sociopolitical thrust, he made an effort to examine the idea of young men forced unexpectedly to become soldiers. For the uninitiated, here’s the basic premise: Foreign troops invade a small, sleepy American city. A group of highschoolers take to the hills and eventually wage guerilla war against the aggressors. In 1984 those aggressors were Russians and Cubans, the setting was Colorado, and the cast included standouts like Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen and C. Thomas Howell. In 2012 it’s the North Koreans (my understanding is that the villains were originally Chinese, but this was “adjusted” in postproduction so as not to diminish Chinese box office) invading Spokane, Wash., which is defended by a uniformly unremarkable cast. Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Cabin in the Woods) takes the lead role, originally Swayze’s. He and would-be love interest Adrianne Palicki (heartbreaking on TV’s Friday Night Lights) are both capable of strong performances, but this movie doesn’t do them any favors. The filmmakers have stripped this story of the nuance and emotionality that made the original worth watching. In that version, Robert (Howell) makes a painful transition from innocent to hardened killer, losing part of his humanity in the process. Here, none of the characters are that complex. The bad guys are faceless

placeholders, the scenario is full of silly red herrings, and the whole thing clanks on noisily until it eventually just peters out. PG13. 114m. RISE OF THE GUARDIANS. Yet another computer-generated holiday movie with a talented cast that I wish was more fun. Santa (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Jack Frost (Chris Pine) team up to make the children of the world believe in them again, and to take back the night from Pitch Black/the Boogeyman (Jude Law). A fun premise, but the story bogs down in the middle and never recovers. The Santa’s workshop and Easter Island set-pieces are enjoyable at first, and Baldwin and Jackman seem to be having a good time. But it’s just not enough to sustain one’s interest. Plus, Jack Frost and Pitch Black are the hero and villain? Who’re these guys even supposed to be? PG. 97m. —John J. Bennett


KILLING THEM SOFTLY. Brad Pitt reunites with writer/director Andrew Dominik, whose 2007 western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford was a gorgeous, melancholic spellbinder. This time out Pitt plays a mob enforcer set loose on three moronic small-timers who stuck up a card came. With James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins and Ray Liotta. R. 97m. THE COLLECTION. Three years ago, critics said that The Collector felt like the final, welcome nail in the coffin of the grisly torture-porn genre. Naïve much? This sequel promises more funhouse disembowelment by (yawn) a demented psychopath. “From the twisted writers of Saw IV, V, VI & VII,” the preview boasts. Seriously. It actually says that. R. 82m. For us snooty film buffs who lament the state of commercial American cinema and/or the dearth of indie films (as we call movies) that get to theaters here in Humboldt County, Friday’s our chance to put five dollars where our mouths are. Or — even better — slide that Abe into the ticket booth at the Arcata Theatre Lounge and watch the latest installment of Future Shorts, a traveling festival of indie and foreign short films. This year’s lineup includes an Oscar nominee from Germany, a coffee shop romance from Cairo and a documentary on conceptual artist John Baldessari narrated by Tom Waits.

Evil Brain From Outer Space. Speaking of film snobs, their ranks were atwitter last August after The British Film Institute released the latest of its once-per-decade polls of critics, scholars and directors: Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958) unseated Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane (1941) as The Greatest Film of All Time. Adjust your lives accordingly. If you’re a Garberville resident you can catch Vertigo for free this Friday as part of “Heroes Night,” an open house tribute to seniors and veterans, featuring a cocktail hour from 1 to 2 p.m. followed by cinema’s crowning achievement and, finally, door prizes and mingling with the Healy Senior Center board of directors.

Origin Of the Milky Way: heracles at hera’s breast. JacOpO tintOrettO, 1575, the yOrck prOJect, public dOMain

Beyond Zip Codes By Barry Evans


hen I was a kid, I used to write my address in full, starting with the name of our house, “Trannon” (an old British conceit is to give one’s house — be it ever so humble — a name), street, town, etc. etc., ending with “…Solar System, Milky Way, Universe.” Let’s do the same in reverse, checking meanings as we go. Universe: The uni- part is pretty obvious, one. But -verse? A passel of English words (for instance: worth, writhe, wrath, wrench, wreath) derives from the ProtoIndo-European root wert = to turn. Back when it was generally supposed that our Earth was stationary, Aristotle suggested that stars were actually perforations in a vast rotating globe through which we could glimpse the eternal fire beyond. So “universe” is everything contained in that spinning sphere. Milky Way: “Milky Way” derives from the Latin Via Galactica (think of “lactate”). An ancient Greek legend tells how Heracles (Latin Hercules) had a divine father, Zeus, and a mortal mother, Alcmene. Wanting to give his son god-like qualities, Zeus let the baby Heracles suckle from his divine wife, Hera, while she slept. Waking to find a strange baby at her breast, she pushed it away, letting her milk spurt across the sky. Look up on a clear moonless night far from city lights, and you’ll immediately see how the legend came about. Time was, the Milky Way was the universe. A famous debate about the size of the universe took place in 1920 between two eminent astronomers, Harlow Shapley and Heber Curtis. While Curtis argued that the Milky Way represented the entire universe, Shapley correctly said that our galaxy is but one of many (many!). Within

a decade, Edwin Hubble proved that the “spiral nebulae” (which Curtis thought to be nearby clouds of gas) were actually other galaxies way beyond the confines of our own starry neighborhood. Solar System: “Solar” derives from sol, Latin name for our local star, the Sun. Now that Pluto has been demoted to a minor planet, our sun’s system consists of just eight planets, nearly 200 moons, and many minor planets, asteroids and comets. Earth: All Germanic languages have a cognate word to our “Earth,” including German Erde, Dutch aarde, and Scandinavian jord, which can be traced back to the Proto-Germanic word ertho. In Norse mythology, Jorth is the mother of Thor (as in “Thursday”). United States of America: “America,” which first appears in cartographer Martin Waldseemüller’s 1507 “Cosmographiae Introductio,” derives from the navigator Amerigo Vespucci (1454-1512). Vespucci claimed to have discovered the “New World” and may have been the first to suggest it was a new continent. California: Queen Calafia ruled the island of California in a 1510 novel by Spanish author Rodríguez de Montalvo. The island, east of Asia, was populated by a race of Amazon warriors. When Spanish navigators first discovered what we now call “Baja California,” they mistook it for an island, and the gave it the name California. “Alta California” once consisted of most of the states of California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Wyoming. l Barry Evans (, like transcendentalist Margaret Fuller, accepts the universe. (“Gad, she’d better!” was Thomas Carlyle’s response to her.)
