A group of six Linfield College students and recent grads are taking a roadtrip across America using a refurbished 1989 school bus that they’ve named the Self Express. The students purchased the bus for $2200 and have put in 1000 hours in restoration. The local community helped paint the bus, contributed labor to the redesign of the diesel engine and donated used vegetable oil and supplies for the trip. The students are posting their experience on Facebook at http://on.fb. me/j9wi6k. • The Onion is known for its satirical brilliance. At the very least, it’s known for the Facebook outrage that’s generated from those who aren’t aware that they are all satire, all the time. The organization is vying for a Pulitzer. One could only expect them to publish a number of stories from their supporters with headlines like “Tornado Victims Thank News Organization for Its In-Depth Reporting on Storm’s Carnage” and “Angela Merkel Opens Up To The Only Newspaper She Trusts.”The news organization is celebrating their 1000th issue with Tom Hanks, Ira Glass, and Arianna Huffington promoting them in videos. • The Oregonian is reporting that Wheego Electric Cars is targeting Oregon with a partnership with O’Brien Auto Group.The itty bitty two-seater car comes with a not-so-itty-bitty price tag of $33,000. The car is fully electric with a range of 100 miles and will be comparable in features (and price) to the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt. With electric vehicle charging stations being spread around the I-5 corridor, will Salem be known as the base station of the electric car? • Roger Ebert seems to be spending a lot of his social network time causing nerd rages. First, he started with the assertion that video games cannot be art and now he’s got Jackass fans in an uproar over this post that he made in response to Ryan Dunn’s fatal car accident: “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.” Ebert’s comment got him temporarily kicked off of Facebook and run through the proverbial Twitter wringer. Even Comedy Central’s “roastmaster” Jeffrey Ross piped up with a “Too soon.” • W e i r d Al Yankovic released a new album last week entitled “Alpocalypse.” The new album includes parody versions of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way, TMZ (a parody of Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me), and Another Tattoo, which is a parody of “Nothin’ On You’ by B.o.B. More importantly, he still has too much hair for his own good.

BRIEF NEWS

LIGHT OF MINE

If you were losing your sight, what would you want to remember seeing? Light of Mine, an independent film by Portland director Brett Eichenberger, answers this question from the perspective of a photographer losing his sight. The story, according to producer Jill Remensnyder, was inspired by the thousands of jobs lost during the recession and is a race against time for the photographer. Owen, played by Portland musician Ji Tanzer, decides to take one last trip to Yellowstone National Park after being diagnosed with a condition that will leave him blind. “The story brings out the character. People can relate to this on so many levels,” she said. “When everything is at its worst, people can really endure.” The crew, including another Portland musician, Rebecca Sanborn, who stars as Laura, and a small film crew, started in Portland and ended up in Yellowstone National Park. While they knew where they were going to film pivotal shots, they took an unusual open-ended approach. Remensnyder said they would stop along the way when an interesting spot caught their eye. The crew began filming in August 2010 and finished in midSeptember. The teaser for Light of Mine can be seen at http://bit.ly/dQtFhG. Light of Mine, which has already made its debut at the Ashland Independent Film Festival, will make its Portland premiere on June

30 at the Whitsell Auditorium in the Portland Art Museum. Tickets can be purchased at http://bit.ly/mqNYL2. -Russell Vineyard

OPINION

! G OM OMG! WTF, War on Drugs? Nancy Reagan may have made it a point to just say no to drugs, but the war on drugs began earlier than her stay in the White House. It was instead Tricky Dick, himself, President Richard Nixon who made drug abuse “public enemy number one.” June marked the 40 anniversary of the War on Drugs. The idea of ending illegal transportation of drugs from country to country, punishing the people who murder each other for their illicit profits sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately that’s just not what is happening. Instead what we have is a government that is fighting a losing battle. One that has cost, according to the AP, $1 trillion so far. It’ll cost billions more each year to keep it going. More than 37 million nonviolent drug offenders have ended up in jail and around 10 million of those for possessing marijuana. That drug is legal for medicinal purposes in several states, including our own. Draw comparisons to someone going to jail for possessing Tylenol all on your own. Drugs are in the United States prison system. If the government is unable to secure prisons from the plague of drugs, it is obviously unable to police the world. It’s not just the hippies who’d like to smoke their dope that are for ending the War on Drugs, the

Global Commission on Drugs which includes a wide range of political dignitaries from around the world released their report that says it’s time to end the nonsense of the “war.” They called for a number of items including: End the criminalization, marginalization and stigmatization of people who use drugs but who do no harm to others. Challenge rather than reinforce common misconceptions about drug markets, drug use and drug dependence. (Read the full report here: http:// bit.ly/klUvoh) That report led former President Jimmy Carter to take his computer and write an op/ed for the New York Times calling for the end of the War on Drugs. Carter pointed out that he called for decriminalization of marijuana with a program of treatment in 1977 and cautioned against the imprisonment of America’s youth. (Read his piece here: http://nyti.ms/kpdMDf) In a world where every political debate includes how much people are paying for taxes. Shouldn’t both sides easily agree to cut this massive expense? We’re told time and time again that the government should stay away from our health care, but we put the government in charge of rehabilitation for people who have a chemical dependency and we pay a premium for it. It’s time to retreat from the War on Drugs and focus our attention on actually doing something about the problem. OMG! WTF, War on Drugs?

“SHE SITS IN THE CITY OF LIGHTS” AT LUNARIA GALLERY

“She Sits in the City of Lights” is a show of Bonnie Taylor Talbot’s Paris-inspired paintings opening at Lunaria Gallery on July 1st. Her canvases feature iconic images of French balcony grates and chandeliers outlined in ribbons of bold color, incorporating stamped words and

The Marion County Fair is not only a celebration of agricultural and domestic industriousness (this year’s theme is the DIY-inspiring “Sew it, Grow it, Show it”), but also one of the few opportunities to see national musical acts in Salem. “This is our second year for bringing in a big-name act, so we’re just making this turn,” says Fair Coordinator Denise Clark, suggesting how incrementally goals like bringing national musical acts to Salem more often are achieved. An agreement with the Oregon State Fair helped facilitate this trend: as of 2010, the state fair has waived their grounds usage fee for the Marion County Fair, allowing the county fair to spend more of its budget on entertainment. This paid off well last year with Lonestar drawing an audience of close to 4,000. CMA Award-winning country singer Tracy Lawrence is coming to the fair on July 7th. Lawrence’s two-decade recording career has included eight Billboard country chart-toppers, most recently 2006’s “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” His sound is classic mainstream country, complete with fiddles, pedal steel guitars, and a Texas twang. The performance should be family-friendly, as Lawrence’s material focuses on down-to-earth subjects like faith, the parental experience, and economic struggles, but concertgoers won’t miss out on clever, upbeat honkytonk numbers. Australia’s Little River Band will be performing on July 8. The band’s U.S. success peaked in the late 1970s, but they continued to record new material well into the 21st century without drastically changing their sound. Although LRB’s lineup includes a whopping zero original members (purists be forewarned), the current group does the band’s hits justice, and fair organizers are excited to host an act that is both a fun throwback and widely known. At 7:30 p.m. on the 8th are the Disney Celebrities, including “YouTube Sensation” Savannah Outen. Her name comes up as the top suggested result after typing only five letters into the search bar, so perhaps “sensation” isn’t too much of an overstatement, and if she blows up à la Bieber, fairgoers can say they saw her when. Though they’re simply billed as “celebrities” it can be assumed that their performance will include some manner of music, dance, slick outfits and Disneyapproved banter with the audience. A meet-and-greet will precede at 5:30 p.m. This is the first year Funtastic will provide the carnival attractions for the county fair, which means newer and bigger rides. But Clark says that a focus on agriculture and domestic arts, and giving local 4-H and FFA students a venue to show off their handiwork, will always be at the heart of the fair. “That is our draw: getting up close and personal with animals, and all of [students’] other exhibits, like sewing and cooking.” All musical acts, including a talent contest at 3 p.m. on the 9th, will be on the county fair’s own outdoor stage. General admission to all events is included with fair admission; tickets for Tracy Lawrence and Little River Band, as well as other information, can be found at the fair’s website, www.co.marion.or.us/fair.

Peculiar Pretzelmen

Friday, July 1

Peculiar Pretzelmen Christo’s Pizzeria, 1108 Broadway St. NE 9 p.m., $7, 21+ Over the past few years, Los Angeles’ Peculiar Pretzelmen have amassed a significant following in Salem, playing at the IKE Box, Boon’s Treasury, The Space, house shows and Christo’s Pizzeria. In fact, they are so popular here that they’ve created a phenomenon where Salem’s music scene now craves any local or touring music that remotely resembles the Pretzelmen or anything in the Tom Waits-esque corner of Americana. Expect a packed house, especially since the space formerly known as “The Space” (and now Christo’s Pizzeria’s performance room) is quite small (but awesome). Every time they play here the ticket price seems to jump a dollar or two, so if this sounds like something you’d be interested in, and you haven’t checked them out,“now” would probably be better than “later.” If you do check them out, request “10 Volt Car.”

The undead vs. fireworks

by Russell Vineyard

Fourth of July safety should be one of every party-goer’s top concerns. Sure you’ve got the water hose ready to douse whatever random thing you ignite, but are you ready for the real danger? The real danger, of course, is zombies. That’s when buying all those flashy fireworks come in handy. Terry Young, formally of the Marion County Sheriff ’s Department, said that zombie outbreaks are just as likely as any other kind of disease outbreak this Fourth of July. And people should take precautions. “What I can suggest is getting as many sparklers as you can,” he said. “Not only are they good for lighting the zombies’ clothes on fire, they also can serve as a distraction.” He said zombies are an easily distracted bunch, and the bright light caused by an ignited sparkler can mean the difference between you and your family’s safety. “If you get too close, just light one up and shove it into the hand of one of the zombies, then run like hell,” he said. Zombies are well known for their inability to think. While they are going for your flesh, they may easily lose track when the sparks from a sparkler are sizzling and popping around them. Smoke bombs are another firework for a sufficient zombie arsenal. These will provide concealment for the escape you will undoubtedly need to make. “There is another bonus side to these little bombs, they produce an unmistakable odor,” Young said. “While we are unsure of how zombies find their prey, we can assume they don’t only use their sight. Many, I’m suspecting, will use other senses as well.” He said that if zombies use their sense of smell to find your flesh, the sulfur odor given off by smoke bombs will help to mask the smell of your flesh providing a greater opportunity for escape. “It will blind their eyes as well as their nose,” Young said.

Aerial repeaters, such as the Pyro Glyphics, can be ignited and tossed into the crowd of undead. Once it begins its onslaught of fiery flashes, it is likely a zombie will come out distracted and, hopefully, aflame. “Something does need to be cleared up. Once a zombie, or a group of zombies, is ignited or distracted, you need to get away,” Young said. “It isn’t likely that any of the fireworks legal in Oregon will kill the undead, so once you ignite them ... run.” He did take a moment to say that under no circumstances should you ignite one inside your house or in an enclosed area. “Be safe. Be reasonable. Zombies aren’t reasonable. They will attack anywhere they can and it is up to you, individual, to make sure you are not lighting your house on fire in the process,” Young said. As a final moment’s thought, Young wanted to remind people that safety is up to the individual. “Have a wonderful time celebrating our nation’s birth. But zombies or no zombies, if you see something potentially unsafe, speak up. Use your head and don’t be stupid,” he said. Fireworks of all kinds, at least the ones legal in Oregon, can be found at various roadside stands around Salem. More information about Fourth of July fireworks safety, visit the Oregon Fire Marshal’s web page at http://1.usa.gov/ iLFDEe. For more information about zombie apocalypse preparation, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s zombie preparedness guidelines at http://bit.ly/loqlll. Good luck.

Kassie Olivera isn’t a run-of-the-mill jewelry maker by Jodi Kerr Kassie Olivera gives her grandparents credit for the success of her business, Unique Creations. “Both my grandparents were very crafty. Whenever I would visit there would be some sort of craft set up,” said Olivera. She specializes in art that is comical and pushes the envelope at the same time. “I like art that is out of the ordinary,” she said. “My inspiration is Al Rio.

Crafts with a naughty twist

Brown’s Town Lounge. When not tending bar, she is crafting and creating things that are unique and sure to bring a smile to faces. “It’s kind of cool, because as a child since I was always being introduced to something new, I don’t have one art style.” Her Etsy store and Salem vendors became a necessity when her mother said she had to sell the stockpile or give it away. “It was starting to look like an episode of ‘Hoarders,’” she said with a laugh. “My Facebook page is the main way I get out to people,” she said. But her earrings, jewelry and hair extensions can be found in local stores around town. If she doesn’t have what you have in mind, ask her to make it. “An all-girls’ folk band in Portland asked me to make a couple penis necklaces. It was a funny thing to make. But they thought it was great. I get to make things that I wouldn’t think of. I have also gotten to make wedding hairpieces and one girl is having me make a bouquet for her wedding out of jewels so she can hang it on her wall afterwards,” Olivera said.

If you're shooting photos in JPG then it's important to get the white balance correct in camera. One tool that works quite well in the ExpoDisc. This device effectively converts your camera's light meter from reflected to incident, meaning that instead of measuring the light that is reflected off your subject, your camera will evaluate the light source itself. The advantages of an ExpoDisc over the standard gray card are that readings from a gray card may be affected by reflections, the ExpoDisc will not shift in color over time and the ExpoDisc is more durable. The ExpoDisc comes in a wide variety of sizes and if you buy one to fit your lens it snaps right in but if you buy one to fit your largest lens it's easy to just hold the disc in front of the lens and you'll only need to buy one. The ExpoDisc comes with a lanyard so you can hang it around your neck and just drop it after you get your reading and you're ready for your shot as well as a nice pouch to be used for storage.

MUSIC

The guy behind the records by Jason Stringer

A large portion of the recordings that are released by local mid-valley bands are engineered by a handful of local studios and producers. These engineers are unsung More heroes who often work music for pennies to ensure on their putting out a quality pg 10 product. A good producer can make or break an album, and this holds true at any level of the music industry. One of these engineers/producers is now opening up his studio to the outside world. Kyle Sanders - who is known by some as a resident of the “Cherry House” (a houseshow venue), and as the bassist for early-aughts pop punk band Lidix - is taking offers from bands.We asked Sanders some questions about his new studio and his past in the Salem music scene.

band with my friends in 1995.We practiced in the basement of my guitarist’s church in a small concrete room. It was so ridiculously loud ... In ‘96 I started another garage band called Sarcoma.We recorded a four-song demo tape and gave 50 copies to our friends at school.We played a few shows at the Grand Theatre, back when Mike Jones ran it.

SW: How did you start recording bands? KS: I volunteered (at Grand Theatre) as a teenager and learned sound basics from Alan Stone. He taught me how to set up the whole stage with mics, and how to run cables to the board and how to operate the board, for the most part. It was a blast. Getting to work there and see those great bands like the Dandy Warhols, Reverend Horton Heat, the (Cherry Poppin’) Daddies and a zillion other bands from all over was like living in a rockmagazine dream ... for a 17-year-old kid. I worked after school at Dairy Queen so my band could save $400 and record (a) demo. I listened to it a thousand times and wore the tape out the first night. I loved making records. I joined the Army National Guard in 2000, and did a tour in SW: How are you associated with the Salem Afghanistan. I came home with some money and music scene? KS: I started out in the Salem music scene in 1987, converted my garage into a practice space/recording studio for my band at the time, Lidix. when I sang in the Scott Elementary choir, and A bunch of bands were coming out of the woodwork then on to the Waldo and McKay choirs.All of my in Salem.A lot of them were high school kids, and a five siblings sing and play instruments, so it was lot of them played shows with my band.They found just natural to have my sister playing the piano in out that we had a recording studio and people started the living room while my brother was practicing the asking me to record them. I had a vague idea how trombone in our bedroom, for hours. I eventually to record, (and) I had some nice microphones and a picked up the my first bass guitar to start a garage

sound-proof space. SW:What bands have you recorded? KS: Between 2003 and 2007, I recorded about 25 full-length albums for various bands, for free. Most of them were just high school kids. I couldn’t take their money. Haha. But some of my buddies insisted on paying me something, so they would bring pizza or beer. Last year in May, after spending a year in Iraq with no live music, I came home to four or five bands wanting to record right away.And, so, I knew it was starting to turn into something.The last year has been really fun for me. I’ve recorded a lot of music with some great people. Last fall, I made records with - let’s see - Right On John, Monoplane, Izzy Maq, Massive Moth, Grinz, Felony Flats, Kilo, Electric Cities, Eric Mutzke.

Kyle Sanders offers you a cake and his engineering skills.

SW:What do you think are your strengths as an engineer? KS: I feel like, in the past few years, I’ve been able to capture the sound that each band is looking for. Every band has different ideas. So, I put a lot of effort into interpreting what they tell me - piece by piece, edit by edit, instrument by instrument - until we have the finishing touches on a polished record that sounds great and everyone is pleased with. Sometimes bands come with a rough idea and just need a place to experiment with microphones and instruments. Recording with Right On John was the

first time I’d recorded three guys banging on trash cans and buckets and bottles in a song called “Shake Your Demons.”That song turned out amazing. SW:What types of music do you like working with? KS: Most of my time has been spent recording bands and solo artists, but I’ve never recorded a symphony, or a Latin jazz band. Both of which I would love to try. Musicians interested in recording with Sanders should contact him at kylecanfly@ gmail.com.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Shia LaBeouf and director Michael Bay have teamed up once again to further drive a beloved franchise into the ground. They make an awesome trailer, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where all of the fun ends. In this third outing, The Autobots figure out that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a spacecraft hidden on the moon, but as these things happen the Decepticons find out too and the race to space is on. The movie has two things going for it. One is that, at least according to an interview with Michael Bay, the pair of racial stereotype robots wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be making any appearances. The other is the severe lack of Megan Fox. Sure, she may be attractive if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re into that sort of thing, but her acting skills leave a lot to be desired. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been replaced with a blonde Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Secret model, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that Bay is serious about his actors.

What happens when a crazy thing happens in a psychiatric hospital? The patients are ignored and therein lies the premise of this movie. Amber Heard plays Kristen, a woman that, after setting a house on fire, is put into the hospital, where she is terrorized by a ghost. Funnily, in the trailer Jared Harris (Mad Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lane Pryce) is creepier than the ghost that reveals itself.

7/8: The Zookeeper

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one for the tweens. Selena Gomez (yay!) stars in this flick about three women vacationing in Paris who find themselves mistaken for a British heiress and ending up in Monte Carlo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of like Parent Trap, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a few more squeals and jumping up and down in this one.

Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we all happy that the really horrible TV show King of Queens was canceled so that Kevin James can now make really horrible movies? In this movie, he plays a zookeeper who tries to win over the hot chick by upgrading his job to car salesman. The animals arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so happy with the decision and try to help him win the girl over so that he can stay their zookeeper.Yes, the animals talk.Yes, the special effects around their mouths are poorly done.Yes, Kevin James runs into things akin to throwaway Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Funniest Home Videos.
