LOOKING AHEAD Well, we got through that year—and decade. Now it’s time to look ahead to what has to be a brighter future in the world of dining, shopping and home cooking: the promises of 2010. In spite of the bleak economy that brought closures to the food scene, we survived, thanks to life-saving changes made by restaurants (reinventing menus and ambiance, adding special prix-fixe dining and happy hours, lowering prices) and retail venues (more ways to save through coupons, weekly specials and emphasis on value). OFF TO A GOOD START We have openings to anticipate in the coming months, venues for eating out and for stocking our kitchens. Novato continues to raise the bar: Following the recent arrival of Paradise Foods with its upscale stock and services in Pacheco Plaza Shopping Center, the owners of nearby Boca steakhouse are introducing a pizzeria and wine bar featuring an emphasis on fresh Northern California cooking and ingredients. With the proposed opening of Whole Foods in the town’s center, the residents of the familycentric community have more choices than ever before...Another market-related development approaches completion in Kentfield—Woodlands Market has created a cafe where Willie’s once reigned. Executive chef will be Debbie Gonnet, who last year closed her San Anselmo business, Debbie Does Dessert and Dinner...Speaking of San Anselmo, as soon as AVA departed from its downtown location last month, new tenants were announced: the owners of the tiny, haute Le Garage in Sausalito, who plan to name their bebe L’Appart (that’s French for “apartment”)...San Rafael is expecting openings of notable dining spots, including Ginolina, on the site of Cinecitta (Third Street at B), a new venture from former Salute veteran Gino LaMotta. Another downtown debut will be made at Court and Fourth by Arizmendi, inspired by the legendary Cheese Board Collective in Berkeley...Up in Terra Linda where Northgate Mall has undergone a makeover, there will be some welcomed ambitious touches: Michael Chiarello’s Tomatina (think gourmet pizzas), Shogun Fresh Japanese Grill (exhibition-style grilling) and Roadside BBQ (from San Rafael’s Randy Kaplan, featuring wood-smoked meats).

hy do people make movies like Leap Year, a romantic comedy so vapid and predictable that a viewer could write the script blindfolded? One of those they-appear-tohate-each-other-but-really-love-each-other stories that were popular in the ’30s—think It Happened One Night without the wit and the charm—neither romantic nor comic, and the central character is so annoying you want to slap her. Amy Adams, all flirty smirks and tossed hair, plays Anna, a Boston stager—she furnishes apartments and houses to make them more salable—has been in a relationship with Jeremy COMING SOON (Adam Scott) for Leap Year opens Friday four years. But, at the Northgate and though they’re Rowland. See page 24 about to buy a for showtimes. condo together, he has yet to pop the question. Jeremy, a cardiologist so dull he barely seems to have a pulse, is about to leave for Dublin to attend a convention. Anna learns that, according to an old Irish tradition, a girl who proposes to her beau on leap day can’t be refused, so she packs her Louis Vuitton bag and she’s off. Because of a storm, Anna finds herself far from Dublin at a country inn/pub run by Declan (A Single Man’s Matthew Goode). A laidback guy with little patience for Anna’s spoiledbrat antics, Declan nonetheless agrees to drive her to Dublin—for 500 euros. Of course things don’t go smoothly, especially after Anna causes Declan’s car to run into a ditch. In Leap Year’s favor are the dramatic landscapes of western Ireland and a nice feel for Irish music. But that’s hardly enough for a film marred by mistakes in continuity (Anna is wearing a white blouse in one scene and in the next, set a few minutes later, she’s wearing a brown

A wry, sci-fi sleeper DISTRICT 9 was a big summer hit thanks to the good taste of sci-fi fans worldwide, who made the wry Johannesburg-set sleeper into a multinational beast. Credit producer Peter Jackson for putting his big bucks and effects into the quirkiest of premises: What earthly motive could possess a dying alien race to park its enormous mothership over apartheid-haunted Jo’berg, with its filthy shanties, its world-class evil street gangs and proto-fascist cops? The starving “prawns” are shuttled down to terrestrial refugee camps, then soon predictably hated and earmarked for transport to a camp hundreds of kilometers away. Career bureaucrat Wikus van de Merwe is picked to head the messy job of door-to-door removal on a bet he’ll be loyal to his corporate masters—a bet he pays off handsomely until, searching through some particularly weird contraband, he lays hold of the wrong canister... —Richard Gould QQQQ

It’s hard to understand how such a shoddy piece of filmmaking could be the work of director Anand Tucker, whose Shopgirl and Hilary and Jackie were outstanding. On the other hand, the writers of last year’s dopey Made of Honor are responsible for the screenplay. < Review our reviews at letters@pacificsun.com

Groundbreaking, camcord horror PARANORMAL ACTIVITY is a groundbreaker with some very, very scary moments, and it offers yet another tantalizing glimpse of a camcord-horror masterpiece out there somewhere in our future. Director Oren Peli has keyed in to an audience truth only hinted at in the Blair Witch series: With a billion cell phones now recording our every moment, life feels at serious risk of being domesticated. Enter the little-screen Lucifer, an unmistakable blur in the timecoded video log with a demonstrated thirst for one woman’s soul.... The hundred-mil grosser was made on a reported production cost of $15,000, making it the most profitable film ever. The film’s most electrifying moments are taken from the single unmoving corner shot you’ve seen in commercials. Don’t be fooled: You’ll be moving like a bobble-head trying to peer around that grainy doorsill. No credits—save a comical DVD scroll of the thousands who participated in its viral marketing campaign. —Richard Gould

Barsotti began working for Graham as a Berkeley High student at age 15. “I started at the bottom and worked my up through the organization,” he says. “I traveled all over the world doing shows for that crazy man I worked for.” Those concerts included Amnesty International’s landmark 1986 A Conspiracy

It also tested Barsotti’s skills. “That was one of the more challenging things I’ve done,” says Barsotti, who ended up promoting two Amnesty International shows in India and Costa Rica, where no local promoters were able to produce concerts of that size and scope. “It was the kind of opportunity that presented itself when you worked for Bill and it made things more fun and exciting than doing a million shows at Winterland or the Oakland Coliseum or the Cow Palace. “Those kinds of benefits were a part of his passion—he just believed it was important to give back to the community.” < Hum a few bars for Greg at gcahill51@gmail.com Lay down a beat of your own on TownSquare, at

Vibraphonist Joe Locke— whose recent projects have included fiery duet concerts with free-jazz pianist Cecil Taylor—delivers a straight-ahead jazz spin on the American songbook. He enlists an ace band—with keyboardist Geoffrey Keezer, bassist George Mraz and drummer Clarence Penn—and vocalist Kenny Washington, whose sweet vocal range is reminiscent of the late soul legend Donny Hathaway.

›› ADViCE GODDESS® by Amy Alkon

Q:

Six months ago, after my boyfriend and I had been together a year, we started living together. We’re in our late 20s. Shortly after I moved in, he asked if another couple, his friends, could move in so they’d save some money—with the understanding they’d be out by early 2010. My boyfriend soon started hanging with them constantly and ignoring our relationship. I pointed out that we needed our alone-time together. He made excuses, but showed that he had no intention of making time for us. I finally had to sit him down and tell him what needed to change. Several days later, he said he wanted to take a break, and I should move out—although the problem couple can afford to leave but are using him for cheap rent. He offered to help me move. I told him I think our situation is fixable with a little effort and understanding.—Hurt

A:

When you’ve just moved in with your boyfriend, you should be doing unspeakable things all over the couch, not trying to get on the waiting list for a comfortable seat for Bananagrams. Never mind that your boyfriend’s slacker friends needed a cheap crash pad. Moving in with your girlfriend and immediately moving in your friends is like booking the honeymoon suite and asking, “Oh, yeah, can we get a cot for my mom?” Of course this ended up working out perfectly for him and his friends. They’re using him for cheap rent and he’s using them for the passive-aggressive breakup: you don’t bother saying their girlfriend or boyfriend services are no longer wanted, you just make them so miserable they stop dreaming of you and start dreaming of U-Haul. Your boyfriend may have “yeah, OK, cool”-ed you on moving in together, but panicked when two toilet brushes became as one. Maybe one small step for man started looking like one giant step toward married-kind: your being the last woman he’ll ever have sex with and trading in his sport package wheels for a minivan. Maybe he’s “just not that into you,” or maybe all he’s good for is picking you up at 7 a few nights a week. OK, fine, this is stuff a couple has to work through— or discover they can’t. But, thanks to what may have started as a misguided act of charity, he has an out: “Why try to resolve the conflict when I can take advantage of these conveniently located human shields?” Oh, has he offered to help you move? How sweet. You’ll be out of his life in half the time! And do go. It’s possible he’ll miss you and want you back. But, do you really want him? He’s been hostile, unloving and unkind. His “taking a break” is probably another easy way out: “Here, have some false hope!” (Anything to keep from mopping your tears off the linoleum.) Your big concern should be how you treated you. Like many 20-something women, you were probably too accommodating, from letting these people move in to hiding your unhappiness. The answer is standing firm on what does and doesn’t work for you: Yes, to entering into a more committed relationship, no to managing a very small Holiday Inn.

Q:

A friend wants to break up with a woman he’s seeing because he can’t stand her smell (her natural scent; it’s not a hygiene issue). Friends say he’s being too nitpicky, and this is not a reason to break up. P.S. He isn’t someone who normally goes around being put off by people’s smell.—Sympathetic

A:

It’s hard enough to apply latex before sex without breaking the mood. Try telling your girlfriend that you just have to hose her down with Febreze. This friend of yours could love this woman’s heart, mind and spirit, but that isn’t going to cut it if, for him, “a rose by any other name” is pretty much “goat vomit.” His friends shouldn’t blame him. Chances are his genes make him do it. Research by biologist Claus Wedekind and others suggests we evolved to prefer the smell of a partner whose immune system is quite different from ours, probably so we’ll produce children with a broader set of defenses from parasites and diseases. Your friend needs to end it before this woman gets attached and, especially, before he loses it and blurts out, “What the hell’s that perfume you’re always wearing, Eau Did Your Septic Tank Back Up Again”? <

Week of January 7 - 13, 2010

by Ly nd a R ay ARIES (March 20 - April 19) This week you may have to settle for ďŹ guring out what you do NOT want to do. With both your ruler (Mars) and Mercury moving retrograde, it is easier to see where things went wrong than to see where things can go right. It is against your nature to stop and review rather than charge straight on, but that is what you should do. Rush now and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll regret later. TAURUS (April 20 - May 19) While it is certainly admirable that you want to begin the year by learning something new, this is not the week to enroll in advanced quantum physicsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; consider a brush-up course in the basic structure of an atom if you really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get into a classroom. As for your weekend, you require extra love and understanding. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already have a dog, visit your local Humane Society. GEMINI (May 20 - June 20) Those of you who are still reading this after last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reality scare are to be commended; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an example of Gemini bravery. You must continue to hold it together this week as your ruler (Mercury) moves retrograde, Sunday and Monday bring a lunar low, then Saturn comes to a standstill in your house of creativity on Wednesday. In other words, it takes twice as long to get anything doneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even with that extra personality you have.

LEO (July 22 - August 22) Typically, having dynamic Mars in your sign is a wonderful thing. But this particular journey through your sign is bringing mixed results due to a retrograde phase. When a planet moves backwards, it brings an opportunity for reďŹ&#x201A;ection and a new perspective on recent events. If that planet is Mars, he is inclined to rush and overreact to the past instead of learning from it. Hence your hasty decision to â&#x20AC;&#x153;accidentallyâ&#x20AC;? run over your neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tacky leftover holiday decorations.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 18) As hedonistic Venus moves through your sign, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to postpone starting on any New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions or major projects. It is, after all, your zodiac celebration and totally acceptable to enjoy time with friends, lovers and/or exotic strangers instead of duties and ambitions. So, shed your adult responsibilities and let your inner child come out to playâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no matter how many candles are on your cake. AQUARIUS (January 19 - February 17) You continue to discover intuitive talents this week as long as you can turn off your rational mind and let your psychic abilities shine. As an air sign, you are often tied to logic, even when it does not serve your best interest. Let 2010 be your jumping off point for experiencing the magic in the universe. Some will call you crazy or delusionalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which, when you think about it, puts you in some pretty good company... PISCES (February 18 - March 19) As Mercury moves retrograde through your friendship house, you may be disappointed by the actions of someone you trust. It is more likely to be a misunderstanding than a genuine betrayal. Nevertheless, reveal nothing on Wednesday when secrets are in danger of being exposed. Keep your thoughts private and your desires hidden. Next week your lucky phase begins. Until then, limit your lottery ticket purchases. < Email Lynda Ray at cosmicclues@gmail.com or check out her website at www.lyndarayastrology.com

VIRGO (August 23 - September 21) Although having your ruler (Mercury) in the ambitious sign of Capricorn is certainly motivating, the fact that he is moving backwards right now takes some of the wind out of your sails. As mentioned last week, you are on an extended interval of developing your self-expression. But progress can stall while attending to overwhelming details. May as well have a cup of hot chocolate while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20) Too many frivolous planets in your money house can make it difďŹ cult for you to hold onto your cash. Those post-holiday sales are tempting, but even â&#x20AC;&#x153;savingâ&#x20AC;? 80 percent, you are still spending money to acquire something that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need or already own. Meanwhile, impulsive Mars is moving retrograde in your travel house. Wherever you decide to go, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get there in time and you probably will wish you had gone somewhere else. My advice? Just stay home.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To promise not

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) My Pisces friend suggests I remind you that how one experiences life is more important than where one lives, what one does for a living or what kind of car one drives. As most Pisces have a strong intuitive sense of what the rest of us need, I pass this along to you as a mere messenger. From my practical perspective, I will add that your career issues are iffy this week. Do not quit if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re employed and do not accept any new jobs that require you to send them a â&#x20AC;&#x153;feeâ&#x20AC;? ďŹ rst.

CANCER (June 21 - July 21) No matter how tough your outer shell, it is difďŹ cult to withstand four celestial energies stacked against you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t berate yourself for avoiding those who lack sensitivityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a smart self-preservation tactic. Too little compassion and too much greed can be toxic for the water signs (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio). Unfortunately, this lopsided ratio is prevalent in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment. My suggestion? Total escapism via whatever makes you feel good. Reality can wait.

LIBRA (September 22 - October 22) Have you noticed that you are taking life too seriously? Get used to it. For the next several months, you are incapable of being unrealistic. You still have a sense of humor, but it now has a cynical edge with a self-deprecating quality. In the event Jon Stewart needs a guest host, you are perfect. As for this week, Wednesday is mired in gloom. Extra sleep is recommendedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;extra social activities, not so much.
