For such a modest plot of land, the chain-link, fence-enclosed Troy Field has garnered considerable community support. So when the hearings officer didn’t show for a recent public meeting on the downtown de facto park’s future, concerned citizens were, well, extra concerned. In NEWS, we take a look at where things currently stand with the surplus school district property and how people are reacting to the process.


> A SWEET CUP OF JOE Bend has no shortage of coffee shops, but some are harder to find than others. Lone Pine Coffee Roasters is one of these little gems, nearly hidden in the Tin Pay Alley downtown. But it’s more than a charming hole in the wall. In CHOW, we talk to the founder about the vision that drives his approach to coffee.










> HAZY DAYS The Dude is blowing through Bend. No, not the cardigan-wearing, bowling Dude. We’re talking about Devin the Dude, the powered-by-pot hip-hop artist currently on tour with Potluck. He may not be a household name, but he’s collaborated with the likes of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Whether you’re a longtime fan or scratching your head saying, “Devin who?” our pop quiz in SOUND is sure to teach you a thing or two.

> SANTA VS. DARK SANTA ’Tis the season to celebrate chubby bearded white men and pretend you believe in magical creatures like elves and flying reindeer. But for some, it’s also an opportunity to turn these now classic tales on their heads, and explore the darkly comic side of the holidays. In CULTURE, we talk to Volcanic Theatre’s Derek Sitter about his personal take on David Sedaris’ Santaland Diaries.

> FUTURE GIVING Of course, it’s also a time for giving. That includes the kind of charitable giving practiced by the folks behind the Dirksen Derby, which raises funds for injured snowboarder Tyler Eklund. In OUTSIDE, we explore how that event has grown over the years and why it’s still so important. And it’s a time for gift giving, too. In the second installment of our annual holiday GIFT GUIDE, we highlight modern gifts for the trend-setters and the fashion-forward.

season! And now they are wanting us to vote for a new fuel tax? Something smells very fishy about the whole thing.


5 VOLUME 19 ISSUE 50 / December 10, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Wow...I think someone owes the crowd of Bend residents that took time from their day, their families and their jobs a big apology for the noshow that happened Thursday at City Hall. Everyone was shocked to hear—after waiting almost 20 minutes for proceedings to start—that another seemingly concerned party got his days wrong. The December 3 date has been in the paper for weeks! The preservation of Troy Field as a public facilities designation is a very real and important issue for this community...but obviously not to some key players. And shame on them for showing such disrespect to everyone that took the time to attend. I have lived in Bend since 1997 and have played with children and dogs in that field, attended music and art festivals in that field. Apparently the next hearing is December 15 at 9:30, and I sincerely hope that this lack of respect and show of poor judgment doesn’t repeat itself.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY? Send your thoughts to Letters must be received by noon Friday for inclusion in the following week’s paper. Please limit letters to 250 words. Submission does not guarantee publication. Letter of the week receives $5 to Palate!

I want Bend and the city council to be held accountable for misspending our tax money. Reed Market didn’t solve any traffic problems...but oh it is pretty now! Ever try driving down Reed Market, Wilson, Bond, and 3rd street at 4 o’clock? Fix the roads—don’t just pretty them up. And have enough vision, yes all you people that want Bend to become bigger with lots more people so you can make more money, to at least see what more people brings to the traffic situation. They can say they are broke and need us to vote yes on the new tax... but I call that BS. They need to spend the money they have on things that are really needed and be more frugal with it. It can be done without milking more money out of the Bend Minions. —Mark A. Faccone A rainy day brought a double rainbow over downtown Bend this past week. Photo by Hayley Jo Murphy.


So, if I recognize all this why am I so opposed? I do not trust the city government. I will tell you exactly what will happen. Currently, city management puts X dollars into the street fund. Then, they get a source of new revenue. Guarantee you that some council person will get a pet project, they will buy some equipment that does not work, not do a project properly, cave to the builders’ association for reduction of SDCs, and so on. Where will the money for this come? Easy answer. It will come from the X dollars that is currently budgeted for streets. Guaranteed. Why do I have such a distrust of city government? This distrust has come about the old fashioned way: They have earned it. —Dan Cooper

CITY NEEDS TO BE MORE FRUGAL WITH FUNDS So, as a taxpayer and a fuel purchaser here in Bend, I would like to know what the city spends their road maintenance budget on. Is it the millions that was overspent on the worthless Reed Market project? Is it all the useless roundabouts that nobody knows how to drive around? Roundabout art? How can they be so broke that they tell the road crews not to throw cinders unless it’s in an intersection, and its only the first snow of the


These people sneaked across our border rather then entering our country in accordance with our laws, so they are here illegally. They are not American citizens, so the correct term for them is “illegal alien,” not “undocumented worker” or “disfavored minority” or any other euphemism. It’s very difficult to believe that illegal aliens have developed a sudden desire to “do things right” when the first thing they did was to violate our immigration laws to come here and remain here illegally. It’s a lot easier to believe that they are lusting after the additional benefits conveyed by a state driver’s license. But if the pangs of conscience are becoming too distressing, it’s good to know that there is a way for them to get a driver’s license without having to go through a lawsuit. Simply come into our country legally, become a US citizen through naturalization, and then you can be issued a driver’s license and enjoy the other benefits of citizenship. Start obeying our laws and you will find that you will not need to be filing lawsuits alleging discrimination. And by the way, Norman Williams is a liar when he states that Republicans are “hostile toward immigration.” Republicans and the majority of Americans are hostile toward ILLEGAL immigration. Leaving out the most important word in that sentence does not validate charges of xenophobia, racism, or hatred of Mexicans. It’s just cheap liberal dishonesty, although that is something Americans have come to expect from many university professors. Responsible journalists ensure that both sides of an issue are represented in every story. Why are there no quotes in this article from anyone who is in favor of Measure 88? —Hal Jordan

ANOTHER AWFUL ODFW COMMISSION HEARING Immediately on the heels of decisions to remove protections from wolves and to establish free fire zones against cougars, the [Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife] Commission will meet this Friday to consider yet another rules change that would fly in the face of scientifically-based predator management. They will consider removing relocation as an option and substituting lethal measures to deal with cougars found in urban areas. Please notify the ODFW Commission at minutes/15/12_december/Exhibit_D_Attachment_1_Agenda_Item_Summary.pdf. Our City is already on record in opposition to automatic extermination. In a letter to ODFW dated May 6, 2015, Mayor Clinton wrote, “. . . If relocating a cougar is feasible, both from a biological perspective and human-safety perspective, it would be a more desirable outcome for the community than killing the animal.”

LETTER OF THE WEEK Lori—We can’t personally relate to your diehard Raider fandom, but we appreciate your positive attitude. And while the number of exclamation points in your letter seems to indicate you don’t need any more caffeine, we want you to have a cup of coffee on us at Palate anyway. Just don’t go during a game—they don’t have a TV screen for sportsball viewing.

CORRECTION In last week’s Classic Gift Guide, we listed the incorrect price and location for Santa Maria Novella perfume. You can find Santa Maria Novella at Hot Box Betty, 903 NW Wall St., for $125. We regret the error. E.J. Pettinger’s

IN REPLY TO “NATURAL BORN RAIDERS” (12/3) My husband and I have been diehard Raider fans since we moved to Oakland in 1980. We have relocated to Bend, Oregon and were thrilled to find Aaron and his B.O.R.N. group. It is amazing to get together every Sunday at the Summit to watch the games with a great group of fellow fans. We have made new friends and love the work Aaron and the B.O.R.N. members do for the community. Thank you for all you do, Aaron! GO RAIDERS!!! —Lori Gallen

I am going to not only vote against this tax, I am going to campaign against it. It is readily apparent to anyone that our streets are in tremendous disrepair and need to be fixed. It is equally apparent that new funding is needed to catch up. It is a great idea to capture tourist money to help pay for it as they contribute to the problem. It is also a good idea to tax vehicle use for a vehicle caused problem.

ity Council took the first decisive step toward keeping Bend’s roads from falling into a deepening state of disrepair at its last meeting by voting to put a fuel tax on the March 2016 ballot.



It was not a unanimous vote. Councilors Victor Chudowsky and Casey Roats voted against the tax measure, ultimately maintaining the positions they held when the issue was first brought before Council in August. Beyond their concerns about whether Bend ought to have a fuel tax, they also objected to the timing. Putting the measure on the ballot in March, rather than May, costs the City about $60,000-$70,000, according to a member of the Streets Funding Committee. But their vote failed to take into consideration the larger picture—that every day we don’t have a fuel tax supplementing the City’s budget for road maintenance and repairs, the problem gets more and more expensive to fix. There’s also the fact that the current conditions do little to contribute to safety or livability.


12/12 & 12/19

Regardless, to the March ballot the measure goes. Now that the City Council has wisely moved forward with the fuel tax, they and their community supporters need to campaign like they mean it. Going to the ballot sooner also means less time for voter education. That conversation needs to go beyond extolling the merits of a use-based fee to fund badly-needed road repairs. It needs to not only recognize the specific rationale for having a fuel tax in Bend, it needs to help people remember why we have taxes, of any kind. Politicians of a certain stripe have made an anti-tax stance a central part of their platform, and it’s not hard to see why. No


one likes paying them, so being against taxes can help win elections. And in Central Oregon, where self-sufficiency and independence are highly valued qualities, it’s easy to paint the benefits of taxes as handouts. But we live in communities for a reason. Generally, we have accepted the notion that we are stronger together. Safety in numbers—that sort of thing. Rugged individualism may serve you well in the wilderness, but if you want to reap the rewards of community, you have to pay into the pot. When everyone in a community chips in, it lightens the load physically and financially. But some folks want to have their cake and eat it for free. That’s where individualism turns into hypocrisy. Many of the same people who complain about the condition of the roads after a winter storm are the same ones opposed to a gas tax. They are upset that the City can’t manage to deliver services, and yet they oppose giving the City the resources it needs to do a better job. Now, we’ll grant that throwing money at a problem doesn’t make it go away, and the City could get the money and botch the job. But that possibility just isn’t persuasive enough to justify not making the effort. The alternative just isn’t an option. Our roads—the pathways that physically connect us to one another—are failing. The longer we wait to fix them and the longer we wait for a solution, the more costly it gets. We owe it to each other to chip in and get the job done. So with that, we offer a glass slipper of thanks to five-sevenths of the City Council, and we’ll shine one up for the voters, when the time comes.

Scheduling mix-up postpones Troy Field hearing

By Corinne Boyer

nly a few seats were empty in the Bend City Council chambers on Dec. 3. A month earlier, residents concerned about the future of Troy Field had saved the date for a public hearing to consider whether the City should remove a public facilities designation to make way for the downtown property’s sale to an out-of-town developer. As the crowd waited for the hearing to begin, City Planning Manager Colin Stephens announced that the hearings officer mixed up the dates and would not be attending the meeting. Because Hearings Office Ken Helm lives in Portland, he couldn’t just hop in his car and head over. The City rescheduled the hearing for 9:30 am on Dec. 15. “I called the public hearings officer and he was very apologetic, but he got his dates confused, he thought this hearing was tomorrow,” Stephens said. “Unfortunately, I think the reason that that occurred is because we have two hearings with him scheduled here tomorrow on different matters.” A month earlier on Nov. 5, the City’s Community Development Department issued a public hearing notice allowing for public testimony for the request by the Bend-La Pine School district to change Troy Field to a commercial limited property, which would remove the public facilities designation. The zoning change is one of the hurdles remaining before the school district can complete its transaction with Brownstone Development Inc.—a business name registered to a Portland-based lawyer George J Gregores—the company that offered $1.9 million to the school district in June. Senior Planner Amy Barry gave her email address to the crowd and said she would accept written comments until Dec. 15. Community members began to ask about the next hearing

and people expressed concern that the new hearing wouldn’t receive as much publicity as the one that was canceled.

either aren’t familiar with its name or don’t know that the buyer plans to develop condos on the property.

“We’ll try to get the word out as much as possible about the new hearing date and time,” Stephens said.

“A lot of people have no idea how historic it is. Ice skating goes all the way back to 1926,” she said. “Thousands of people have used this field, and I think a lot of people are unaware of what is going on.”

Suzie Newcome, owner of Namaspa Yoga and Massage, was at the hearing and said she was surprised the hearings officer didn’t have to be local to Bend. “The fact that this hearings officer got the hearings date mixed up seems very odd, and it’s being rescheduled now for a date that’s not traditionally a hearings date, so it’s on a Tuesday rather than a Thursday at 9:30,” she said. “And [Stephens] said they’re not going to put marketing against it—they’re only going to email the people who showed up today. So it seems very suspicious to me.” The mix-up fueled suspicions about backroom deals, leading some to wonder about the impact of their public comments. “Something goes on behind the scenes that we don’t know about,” said hearing attendee Santiago Casanueva. “Which basically tells us at some level, there’s already been a decision made.” Another Bend community member who is concerned about the sale of the property is Julia Ohlson. She explains that the property has been a green space since the city was founded. “Unfortunately, how Troy Field is described now is reduced to three words: vacant undeveloped property, and that’s it,” she said. “Because it was never reserved as historic, it was never reserved as open space, so it has nothing going for it.” Ohlson believes it’s been challenging to get the word out about Troy Field because people

Assistant City Manager Jon Skidmore said the City originally offered $850,000. The school district came back with a counter offer of $1.7 million. Skidmore says the City made a second offer of $1.1 million and the school district rejected it. “We accepted the highest offer,” explained Brad Henry, chief operations and financial officer for the school district. Henry said Brownstone Development Inc. has also offered to reimburse the school district for its environmental testing fees. Bend City Council will make the final decision to approve or reject the public facilities designation sometime after the Dec. 15 public hearing and a report from the public hearings officer. Ohlson adds that a petition started several months ago now has more than 1,100 signatures. “Troy field has always been a place to celebrate, a place for the community, and it’s just a playing field and that’s what it’s always been and it should remain that,” she said. “Sometimes you don’t realize how important something is until it’s taken away from you.”

Troy Field Public Hearing 710 NW Wall St. Dec. 15, 9:30 am

A special Bend City Council roundtable discussion will be held on Dec. 10 regarding short-term (aka vacation) rentals. The meeting will include a presentation, a public comment period, and a roundtable discussion breakout, and will be held in City Council Chambers at 710 NW Wall St. from 4 to 7 pm. The Work Group on the Prevention of Profiling by Law Enforcement recently released a report and recommendations to the Oregon Legislature. The work group includes Oregon Attorney General Ellen F. Rosenblum, Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson, Kayse Jama with the Center for Intercultural Organizing, and members from the American Civil Liberties Union, the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and several other organizations. Fair Shot For All, a coalition of labor and community organizations, released a statement on the report provided by the work group. “Every day people are targeted based on their race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, language, housing status, sexual orientation or gender identity,” said Kayse Jama, Executive Director of the Center for Intercultural Organizing. The work group made several recommendations to the Legislature, which included improved training, providing complaint investigation information to the Law Enforcement Contacts Policy & Data Review Committee (LECC), and developing an accountability structure between the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, the LECC, and law enforcement. In July, Gov. Kate Brown signed House Bill 2002 into law—which prohibits Oregon law enforcement from profiling. “However, simply making something illegal does not mean it does not still occur— and our work is far from over,” Jama said.

MODERN MARVELS Cutting edge gifts for futuristic folks


Contemporary gifts for the discerning mind By Jared Rasic



One could really choose any of the myriad of coffee stylings from Strictly Organic Coffee Company, but it is the Quickstep that really adds clarity to the modern professorial mind. Quickstep takes the mushroomy, earthy tones of the typical Sumatran cup and ties it into the complex, smokey acidity of the Guatemalan beans. It is a coffee that sharpens the senses while clarifying the mind of the scholar dealing with educating the future of the country in a society where most information is available at the touch of a finger. Also, coffee is delicious and wonderful as are most things in moderation.

As much as we might love a flickering flame across the printed word, sometimes a stable source of light is needed to make the late night hours shorter. Whether it’s for grading papers, writing your own long-gestating work, or delving deeply into a novel whose world will just not let you go, Holcomb makes beautifully illuminating lamps. Lamps whose Quoizel design is not just pleasing to the eye, but whose hand cut pieces of stained glass will improve the quality of any room it lives in. Don’t let your light be simple, let it be refined and prismatic.

Lone Crow Bungalow, 937 NW Wall St. $285

Strictly Organic Coffee Company, 6 SW Bond St. $14 per pound


JUICE COUNTER MORNING LIFT OFF As much as most of us love coffee, sometimes it makes that unquiet mind even louder and that body even more filled with jitters. Juice Counter is all about cleansing the body of all toxic stresses and discombobulation from the brilliant minds of the Bend’s Makers District. While all six flavors are organic, cold-pressed, raw, and unpasteurized, the Morning Lift Off will most definitely clear the foggy, low energy brain from its doldrums. Combining grapefruit, apple, lemon, ginger, cinnamon, and maca, this juice will make your lack of sleep a forgotten memory. Sleepiness need not be a hindrance any longer.

Sometimes the simplest explanation for a complex concept is the easiest one. With Logicomix and Democracy, these concepts are explained in graphic novel form, which doesn’t necessarily make them less complex, just more accessible. Logicomix covers 60 years and focuses on the struggle for the foundation of mathematics, told through the eyes of great thinker Bertrand Russell. Democracy is by the same creative team and combines stunning visuals with the story of the invention of Democracy and how we can keep the concept alive. These books are a truly marvelous way to bring abstract ideas to the modern Millennial’s visual mind.

Gifts to travel into the future with By Jared Rasic

OAKLEY SUNGLASSES Oakleys used to just be for athletes, rock stars, or presidents of foreign governments, but now, anyone can slip into a sweet pair of sunglasses without having to mastermind a coup in Equatorial Guinea. With the sun-obliterating polarized lenses, the modern jetsetter can travel to the brightest of lands and still see off into the shining and distant horizon. Even if your travel takes you to Barrow, Alaska, during its month of darkness, a pair of Oakleys will make the future look even brighter. These are a quick and easy way to add some mystery to those facial expressions.

Coffman Vision Clinic, 61535 S Highway 97 $400-$450 without prescription

IPHONE WALLETS People have used their iPhone cases to stash things like credit cards, little wads of money, and drugs for years, but that was putting the cart before the horse. The wallet is what the modern jetsetter’s life exists in, carrying foreign currency, precious identification, and photos of the kids you hope are having fun somewhere else. Make the wallet be the primary device your phone comes in, not the other way around, because while sometimes it’s nice to call home, it is sometimes even better to just disappear. Make yourself just a little bit hard to find.

Revolvr, 945 NW Wall St. $65

TAN BAND, WHITE FACED WATCH FROM SHINOLA No one really needs to wear a watch anymore. It is one of the few body accessories that have become completely replaced by something as unrelated as a telephone. So, since we can tell the time from a myriad of different sources, wearing a watch is a statement more than it is a practicality. Then the watch itself should be a statement and this watch says, “Hey, my phone is for cat videos and global positioning, but my watch tells me local time as I hack my way through this Peruvian jungle.” Because if your watch can’t make you Indiana Jones, you’re just doing it wrong.

Revolvr, 945 NW Wall St. $550

GUATEMAYA TOURS While Guatemalan coffee beans have been popular in the States for years, it is easy to forget the process of the growth and harvesting of these delicious treats. Bellatazza’s own Stewart Fritchman will take you on a guided tour of the Guatemalan highlands of Lake Atitlan, where you can experience an all-inclusive trip for the coffee connoisseur. Be fed, housed, and storied by the men and women who live on the plantations where some of the best coffee in the world is born. It couldn’t possibly get any fresher than that.

APPLE WATCH Never miss the time, your favorite song, or a call with this handy, modern gadget.

The Apple watch is also like having your own personal trainer as it tracks your runs, activity, and can even tell you how often you should sit and stand. The only thing it can’t do is fly.

Simply Mac, 425 Powerhouse Drive. Starting at $349.

LASER TREATMENTS The beauty of modern technology allows us to permanently make unwanted blemishes and facial hair disappear.

THE OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST Modern marvels for ambitious adventurers By Brian Jennings



TITANIUM FRENCH PRESS Second to food, coffee is high on the list of essential needs. But there’s no need to go instant when Snowpeak makes a French press this light. Coming in at just 6.3 ounces, the titanium press can be heated up directly over the camp stove, further reducing the load and the cleanup. And despite the light weight, this press holds a generous 24 ounces of the good stuff— enough to fuel a long day on the trails or, if you’re feeling generous, to share with a friend.

Mountain Supply, 834 NW Colorado Ave $219.95

BIOLITE WOOD BURNING CAMP STOVE When you get to your overnight hiking destination you’re likely starved. So, cooking becomes paramount in the hiker’s mind. There are hundreds of ways of cooking; none of them are wrong. But some are more convenient than others. Yesteryear’s explorers would have loved the ease and size of what is available for the backcountry cooking experience today. The BioLite wood burning camp stove blends classic form with modern function. No need to pack in fuel—a few twigs fed into the core of this stove will boil water and cook up a fine meal quickly. You can also use its USB board to charge small electronic devices. Take that, campfire.

Crow’s Feet Commons, 875 NW Brooks St. $56

SELK'BAG SLEEPING SYSTEM Most everyone enjoys a good drive through our scenic countryside. But as the recent storm reminded us, it’s best to always be prepared for the worst. Rapid weather changes and other unforeseen events can potentially force one to become stranded. Some people will throw an old sleeping bag in the back of the car for just this reason. But there’s a better—and more mobile—way to go. The Selk’Bag is like a cross between a mummy bag and footie pajamas. Perfect for staying toasty—and upright—stranded in a snowbank or sitting around the campfire on a chilly night. Rated to 35 degrees Fahrenheit, they even come in superhero designs for kids, and the young at heart.

REI, 380 SW Powerhouse Dr. $129.95

Sportsman’s Warehouse, 63492 Hunnell Rd $99-$159

VOLUME 19 ISSUE 50 / December 10, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

With the thousands of acres of public lands available in Central Oregon, it stands to reason that hiking and backpacking continue to gain popularity. With excellent trailhead access to our wilderness areas, more people than ever are exploring these backcountry treasures. Modern equipment helps, too. Years ago it wasn’t uncommon for overnight hikers to carry 40-60 pounds of gear on their backs to secluded areas. But, with today’s ultra-light gear, there’s no need for that. This multi-day backpack is one of the best ultra-lights. Manufactured by Osprey, the Exos 58 carries a compact 25-30 pounds.


HOLIDAY EVENTS—Holiday happenings for all ages—whether you’re in the mood for a sleigh ride or want to enjoy a few Christmas classics by carolers. If giving is on your list, stop at the Tree of Joy in Santaland—obviously, the big guy will be there for a photo op—and draw the name of someone in need. SantaLand, along with the Hilton Garden Inn, will accept unwrapped gifts through Dec. 13. 450 SW Powerhouse Dr. Free.

BEER—GoodLife is hosting the third annual Beer festival which Bendites will drink right up. You will receive a COWBF glass and four drink tickets, which combined with food carts and a heated tent makes for a fun and comfortable way to get your adult beverage on. 1-9 pm.

Up In Smoke

Devin the Dude blows through Bend

SUGGESTS By Jared Rasic

By Sam Katzman 17

Sure enough, just in time for the holidays, The Dude will be in Bend next week headlining at the Domino Room. It’s the first stop he and Potluck, the hip-hop duo hailing from Humboldt, California, will be making in the Northwest on their Happy Holidaze tour. Best known for his mellow flow and 420-friendly verses, Devin the Dude has been catering to the underground hip-hop community for more than two decades. Born in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 1970, Devin Copeland spent most of his childhood moving from town to town in Texas. When Copeland was in the sixth grade he smoked marijuana for the first time. He’d be “chewed out” by his mother later

that evening after she discovered a joint he was trying to hide under his hat. But that day ultimately became a major influence in directing his career path—transforming Devin Copeland into Devin the Dude. Since then, the Houston-based hip-hop artist has released eight solo albums, including his breakout 2002 disc Just Tryin’ ta Live, which featured arguably his most popular tracks, “Lacville ‘79” and “Doobie Ashtray.” He’s also collaborated with Dr. Dre, De La Soul, Snoop Dogg, and Jay-Z, among many others. Though he basically just plays himself, Devin the Dude also dabbled in acting as the star of the stoner comedy, Highway 420. Devin hasn’t dropped an album since One for the Road in 2013, but he’ll have no shortage

of hits to riddle at the Domino Room next week. Few rappers have maintained the same longevity on stage as Devin the Dude. Seeing the smooth flowing lyricist perform live is like watching the history of hip-hop unfold before your eyes, with his setlist ranging from songs he wrote back in the early ’90s to his more recent raps.    Joining Devin on the Happy Holidaze tour are Underrated and 1 Ton of the underground hip-hop group Potluck. The Northern California rappers have released six albums, including Humboldt County High, Harvest Time, and Pipe Dreams, which reached No. 30 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart in 2009. Similar to Devin’s rhymes, most of Potluck’s music is aimed at hip-hop fans who think green. Together in one concert, Devin the Dude and Potluck is a match made in hazy heaven.

NICE & BROWN, DJ THECKECTIK & PELVIS COSTELLO It’s always nice to bring out the funk and Nice & Brown know how to get some booties shaking. Plus, there comes a time when you have to go see someone named Pelvis Costello. Don’t let this chance pass you by, because then you might have to settle for Anus Joplin. 9:30 pm. Thursday, Dec. 10. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. No cover.

Devin the Dude with Potluck 8 pm, Wednesday, Dec. 16 Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $20 adv., $25 door.


Do you know the Dude? 1. Devin the Dude emerged onto the underground hip-hop scene on June 14, 1998, with the release of his debut solo album ,The Dude. What team won the NBA championship two days earlier? 2. All of these acts have collaborated with Devin the Dude EXCEPT: A. 50 Cent B. Gucci Mane C. King Chip D. Eminem E. Coldplay

TRAILER 31 & THE ROAD SODAS An acoustic album release party in a bookstore sounds like a wonderful way to spend a cold winter night. Trailer 31 is releasing its debut album and The Road Sodas are coming down from Portland to be a part of the festivities, so pull up a comfy chair and enjoy. 7 pm. Friday, Dec. 11. Dudley’s Bookshop, 135 NW Minnesota Ave. No cover.

3. What day did Devin release his sixth solo album Suite 420? 4. A wordsmith of a different sort was also born in St. Petersburg. Which beatnik was it? 5. What gadget did Devin use to film his music video for his most recent hit “I’m Just Gettin’ Blowed?”


6. Devin the Dude is widely known as “your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.” But who’s the most interesting rapper he has ever met?

Answers 1. Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won their third consecutive title and the sixth in eight years 2. D (Eminem) 3. April 20, 2010 4. Jack Kerouac 5. A self-controlled drone. One of Devin’s favorite things to do is get high and fly his drone. 6. Blowfly, otherwise known as “the original dirty rapper.” In an interview with Complex magazine Devin recalled the first time he heard the Georgia rapper as a kid. “I used to sneak and listen to him and remember all the lyrics; that’s what I thought rap was,” he said.

I DECLARE WAR Sometimes everything isn’t sunshine and happy elves during Christmas, so some super mind-numbing deathcore metal might help you forget those deep, dark holiday doldrums. Time to make your eyes bleed for Santa! 7 pm. Saturday, Dec. 12. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $12-$15.

CULTURE No, Seriously, Put Your Cell Phones Away

ART WATCH By Corinne Boyer

Volcanic’s Santaland wants to touch your dark places


By Jared Rasic

operate for the year. “A Bend in the River” wraps around the outside of the building and was constructed by artist Rochelle Schueler and designed by painter and longtime Bend artist Justyn Livingston. Livingston is known for her design and tile work at the McMenamins soaking pools. This Christmas season, the Volcanic Theatre Pub will be the only local place to see The Santaland Diaries. Photo by G-Rhymes Imaging


he Santaland Diaries was initially sparked from David Sedaris spending a holiday season playing a Christmas elf in the SantaLand of a massive Macy’s department store in New York City. The resulting essay is dryly funny and full of biting observations about how Americans treat strangers and their children around the holidays, but it also packs in just enough redemption and heart to keep things in the “spirit of the season.”

the screen during the performance because (as he pulls out a hammer) if he sees a face in the audience lit up by a device, he will smash the shit out of it. He says his insurance will cover it and the mad gleam in his eye assures the audience he isn’t playing. Second, is his other disclaimer to the audience about the content of the evening: “If you’re easily offended...fuck you.” Creating

This year, Derek Sitter and his Volcanic Theatre Pub took out a professional license on the one-man show version of the piece, meaning no other theater company in the area can produce the show simultaneously. Thus, Sitter has made Santaland quintessentially his own in a way completely unique to his artistic sensibilities. For years, Sitter has said that he feels like live theater shouldn’t be something easily shrugged off after the curtain call. He believes theater should astonish the audience and leave them disturbed, uncomfortable, amazed.

Two things happen at the beginning of the show to let you know what kind of evening is about to commence. First, Sitter approaches the stage and gets set up behind his music stand, as his version of SLD is a hybrid of a reading and performance. He lets the audience know to please silence their cell phones, but also not to text or even look at

“Since the story is basically a recount of his experiences as an elf in the largest store in the world and the valuable lesson he learned, I couldn’t help but think of him as a ‘Self-Help Guru’ doing a Ted Talk,” Sitter says. “I had recently been released from a five-day stint in the psych ward—after performing Zoo Story—and there was a lot on my mind about a man ‘beginning to lose it.’ So, I saw him as a person wanting to genuinely help people with his hysterical yet enlightening story.” Throughout the 90-minute piece, Sitter (with help from his bartender and Don Tompos in the booth controlling the slides) runs the gamut from the deeply personal (Sitter’s wife Jeanne had open-heart surgery this last Monday), to poking fun at Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, and more.


Sitter has taken that manifesto and applied it to The Santaland Diaries in such a way as to create a gathering storm in Sedaris’ words— making something snarky and witty into something that almost plays like a suicide note for the human spirit, while also allowing levity to sand down the jagged edges of the character Sitter has created.

right offensive.

Derek Sitter makes The Santaland Diaries his own.

this almost adversarial relationship with his audience gives the proceedings a sense of intensity a lot of live theater fails to capture and is also an incredibly ballsy way to begin a damn Christmas show. Sitter then takes the audience on a tour of this depressed department store elf ’s psyche in ways hilarious, heartbreaking, and down-

The show is at times laugh-out-loud funny and shockingly dark and depressing with slides ranging from bloody tampons and dented-in skull cavities to Sitter’s lovely daughter smiling in front of a Christmas tree. It feels like the work of a man coming to terms with himself and the world he lives in. “This time my perspective on everything has changed,” Sitter says. “It taught me what’s truly significant in one’s life, and that’s love, life, and family. The story I tell expresses that pretty clearly now. It’s the whole damn point now.”

Livingston drew inspiration from the project after looking through some of her art books. “I was drawn to the African sculptor El Anatsui who creates fabric out of metal trash by ‘sewing’ pieces of metal together,” she said in a statement. She and her artist friend Chris Abramczeck began experimenting by sewing together metal strips. “This meant punching holes in the tough metal and attaching them with baling wire—a very labor-intensive process.” But just before the project began, Livingston discovered she had cancer and was getting ready to undergo surgery and treatment, and so Schueler stepped in to help. “As luck would have it, Rochelle offered to do the assembly herself. I am forever grateful to her for this generosity,” Livingston said in a statement. Schueler spent two months assembling 28 tongue and groove metal siding panels 16 inches wide totaling 35 feet. Through the generosity of Scot Brees, Schueler says he rented her a space at no cost at the High Desert Makers' Mill—that will open soon. While Schueler typically works in tile mosaic, she enjoyed being part of this project. “I walked around with a bucket and filled it with things that spoke to me, came back, and put it in piles and created it from there,” she said.

A Singular Experience

Lone Pine Coffee keeps it sweet and simple

Providing private, compassionate euthanasia services for your cats & dogs in the privacy of your pet’s home.

in Pan Alley plays host to all kinds of people. Every day this unassuming alley off of Minnesota Avenue downtown acts as a makeshift Ellis Island to tourists, locals, and everyone in between. Three businesses are tucked into the backside of the old Bend Hardware building (whose front side hosts Bond Street Market, Azura, Noi, and others). When you walk into the alley, first up is The Wine Shop, a relaxed yet swanky libations space, next is Tin Pan Theater, a 28-seat movie house, and finally, Lone Pine Coffee Roasters.

Wave coffee, as it came to be known.” Third Wave coffee is focused on farm level coffee and single origin beans, basically the next logical progression when it comes to the coffee scene in America. The first wave being Folgers-style mass produced coffee and the second being Starbucks bringing the Americanized, Italian coffee culture to our shores. Witham started primarily as a roaster in Madras, selling to stores around Central Oregon

While it’s hard to call Lone Pine one of Bend’s best kept secrets, as many people know about its existence, there still is hardly a day where the employees don’t get a few new people just stumbling across the space for the first time. The first time I walked into Lone Pine, the initial thing that I noticed was the smell. All of the coffee is roasted in the modestly sized space and it simultaneously does two wonderful things: It makes Lone Pine always smell like fresh, deliciously roasted coffee; and it snows the roasted coffee flakes into the alley in a downright magical display. Owner and Chief Roaster Extraordinaire Scott Witham had a specific vision for what he wanted to do with his coffee. “Years ago, I started experimenting and really getting into what coffee could be,” says Witham. “I was getting excited about different origins and the roasting process. Realizing that, even at home, I could have a better product than anything I could find in Central Oregon at the time. Granted, this was before Thump opened or Backporch opened. We all had the same idea. We looked at the Bend coffee scene and there were some innovators, but there was a big hole when it came to Third

he says. “I try to develop the coffee and the sweetness. I have always chased the sweetness. I love really sweet coffees. I don’t think coffee should be sour. It’s like adding acid to a dish at the end if you’re a chef.” Lone Pine is special not just because their coffee is excellent with a huge range of flavor profiles, but also because everything they sell in the store has a handmade timelessness to its quality. Witham and his team care deeply about your experience and work hard to make it memorable. Aside from all of the excellent baked goods from Sparrow, Fearless, and Foxtail, Lone Pine hand makes in house their own syrups, the bourbon caramel for the lattes, as well as hand whipping the cream and melting the chocolate. “We’re buying our own Oregon hazelnut butter and adding organic sugar to that. We’re hand making our own waffles every morning using European-style butter, a nice organic flour, pearl sugar and then it’s yeasted overnight. We make our own chai,” Witham explains. “Everywhere we can we are using organic, high quality ingredients.”

for years before opening up the coffee house proper downtown. The space feels so instantly warm and inviting, it’s easy to see it as a reflection of pulling away from the popular industrial and modern style of coffee houses at the time. But regardless of how comfortable the space is, none of it would work if Witham didn’t have a strong vision for how he wanted to roast his coffee. “I really used to focus on the end of the roast. Now I’m really focused on the whole roast,”

But again, even with all of the high quality ingredients and delicious food, even with the unmatched coffee, none if it would matter if the key ingredient were missing. Witham puts it best. “You come into Lone Pine and you’re treated like family. Almost like you’re coming into someone’s house. You’re welcomed,” he says. “Everything is just really carefully crafted and we serve the best things we can to you.”

he Halyard Building, a ruddy turquoise warehouse facing the Oregon-Washington border in the town of Hood River, is now fully occupied by Pfriem Family Brewers—reflecting the massive growth the Belgian-influenced brewery has seen since it was founded three years ago. “When I started this brewery,” co-founder Josh Pfriem told the Source, “I thought it’d be amazing if I could take over the whole building sometime. We had one end of it, with the brewpub sharing space with the fermenters. And now we have the space for a full barrel-aging and bottle-conditioning system. It was a dream of mine, and now we’re getting to that point.” Pfriem, alongside other Hood River beer giants like Logsdon and Double Mountain, has helped make the Columbia River Gorge a beer destination outclassed perhaps only by Bend in Oregon. Waits of two hours or so are common during the summer, but visit during the current shoulder season, and you’ll be greeted by a laid-back scene—one where you can sit back and enjoy spicy, full-flavored seasonal favorites like the Winter Ale and Belgian Christmas Ale.

Upon this foundation, Pfriem—which now distributes a fifth of its output in bottles across Bend and elsewhere—has spent the past year undergoing a cycle of rapid expansion. “We worked with Metalcraft Fabrication to create a new 15-barrel brewing system that really boosts our efficiency,” Josh said. “We can produce the Pilsner, our best-selling beer, much more quickly now, and that frees up time for us to play with our other equipment, like the foeders and the three wine tanks we have.” Indeed, 2016 will see Pfriem produce a fairly dizzying variety of barrel-aged beers in bottles. The new space in its warehouse is now filled with spirit barrels and wild-fermentation tanks, allowing the brewery to experiment even more than before. “We’re planning to release framboise and other lambics in bottles next year,” Josh explained, “and we want to release barrel-aged beers on a monthly basis, starting with a bourbon barrel-aged American-style stout early on. Eventually, I’d like to start blending lambics to produce gueuze, but that’s still a couple years off.”

hen Tyler Eklund was paralyzed from the neck down in an accident at the 2007 Snowboard Nationals, the then14-year-old didn’t know how many friends he had. As it turns out, he has at least 500— probably many more—who have shown support for him year after year. For the past eight years, these friends have come together to raise money for Eklund and to express their admiration for this young man who had so much talent and potential in the world of snowboarding.

eight years of support for Eklund has netted more than $100,000 for his care and needs. Last year the Derby raised $35,000, all of which was donated on Tyler’s behalf. The focus on Saturday, Dec. 12, will switch to Mt. Bachelor’s West Village, and the event has sold out in only four days with the maximum of 500 participants registered. “It’s amazing to see how quickly people signed up for the event,” Dirksen says, adding that people are coming from points all over the United States and the world—Tahoe,

each course, and the racer with the fastest combined time wins the division. There are 11 divisions for men, women, teens and children, and they range from novices to professional competitors. Finals are held on Sunday, culminating with an awards ceremony at 3 pm. Then there’s the after party at Velvet in downtown Bend that evening. In addition to the Mt. Bachelor activities, there’s the Dirksen Derby Film Fest on Saturday, Dec.12, from 7 to 9 pm. Doors open at 6 at COCC’s Wille Hall, 2600 College Way. The film fest not only features new films, but also a photo division competition open to all.

With the first snowfall in the surrounding mountains—and hopefully much more to come—skiing and snowshoeing are foremost in the minds of many Central Oregonians. Snowshoeing has become one of the fastest growing sports in recent years as it presents an affordable option for people of all ages and ability levels to enjoy the solitude and beauty of the snowy backcountry. Consider marking these dates for the potential opportunity to experience a full moon while snowshoeing with a group of friends or family. Dec. full moon this year just happens to be on Dec. 25. After that, the next full moon is Jan. 24, 2016. Then, another full moon will occur on Feb. 22, 2016. Plan and prepare accordingly, keeping weather conditions in mind.

So, where to go? Pick a spot. The Cascade Lakes Highway up to Mt. Bachelor provides numerous public access points. Between Sunriver and Mt. Bachelor, Edison Snow Park is a favorite among locals. There are five snow parks along or quite near Century Drive where you can strap on your snowshoes. Other opportunities exist in the Ochoco Mountains east of Prineville, south at Newberry National Volcanic Monument near Paulina and East lakes, and to the west in the Willamette National Forest. There is no shortage of opportunity, provided there is snow.

Where to purchase or rent gear? REI in Bend’s Old Mill District, the Powder House, Pine Mountain Sports, and Mountain Supply are some of the many locations where one can purchase or rent snowshoes. Any of these outlets will also have maps and suggestions for where to go. The sport is easy for beginners and an excellent way to introduce kids to winter outdoor activities. If you want a guided service and instruction, Bend’s Wanderlust Tours has developed an international reputation and they offer moonlight tours that include bonfires and hot cider. You can check their schedule at Native Americans introduced snowshoeing as they hunted and gathered food throughout North America. White explorers soon caught on that this mode of transportation was a very efficient way to cross snowy landscapes. Today’s advanced equipment has made the sport even more attractive. Next time you are out snowshoeing in Oregon’s backcountry, enjoy the beauty and quiet solitude—and perhaps a full moon!

SCREEN Dust Gets in Your Eyes Creed honors Rocky’s legacy By Jared Rasic 37 VOLUME 19 ISSUE 50 / December 10, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY


ot to get too gender normative or anything, but there is this thing called Man Tears. Urban Dictionary defines it as, “When one reaches a certain zenith of unbridled manliness, one cannot cry saline-based tears anymore. Instead, one’s tear ducts will secrete other, lesser men, who then proceed to cry in one’s stead.” I have heard a lot of folks describe the act of watching Creed as an object lesson in the constant production of man tears and I think I am here to say that that is a load of crap. The tears streaming across my jowls (because I’m a turkey) were not the tears of man, but straight soul tears, bubbling out of a deep seated love of sports movies, daddy issues, and watching a movie alone at night in a big empty theater. Creed is wonderful in the old school way by being built from the ground up with a solid script, excellent performances, and a structure that follows the great sports movies of the last 40 years without much embellishment.

In actuality, nothing about this movie should work but it does so almost effortlessly and with a big beautiful heart on its sleeve. Creed follows the life of the Adonis “Donnie” Johnson, the illegitimate son of Apollo Creed, played by Carl Weathers in Rocky I-IV. Apollo was Rocky’s opponent in the first two movies and then became his trainer and friend in the following two, only to die in the ring (in Rocky’s arms) from a beating by Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Donnie never met Apollo, who died before he was born, and spent most of his life bouncing around group homes and foster care before Apollo’s widow adopts him. But fighting is in Donnie’s blood and no matter how sweet the life he leads, all roads lead him to Philadelphia and the tutelage of Rocky Balboa. Just based on that description, the film should have been a cloying, formulaic slog, but director Ryan Coogler and stars Michael B. Jordan


and Sylvester Stallone have instead created one of the best films of the year. My initial nervousness about the film actually had nothing to do with the film itself, but with the legacy of Rocky. While Rocky V is pretty terrible, 2006’s Rocky Balboa was a beautiful send-off to the character and I couldn’t imagine that delving back into his world would produce any additional dividends. I could not have been more mistaken. People will say that Creed is the star making performance for Jordan, but that is completely devaluing the work he has put in ever since he played the absolutely unforgettable Wallace in the first season of HBO’s “The Wire.” As Vince Howard on “Friday Night Lights” and as Oscar Grant in Fruitvale Station he proved that he wasn’t just a leading man, but a real actor who cares about doing powerful and memorable work. The work Stallone does here should not be undersold, though. His

work is subtle and, frankly, beautiful, and he genuinely deserves some awards consideration here. Creed follows the formula flawlessly. There is a love interest (with her own interests, ideas, and brain for once, and excellently played by Tessa Thompson), a training montage, a third act shake-up that almost ruins everything and a final fight the audience is so invested in that it’s hard to sit still. It all works so well it’s almost ridiculous, but it doesn’t matter. I want more Creed movies and I want them immediately. Rocky, Donnie Creed, and company are far from done with this fight. Let those tears flow.

Dirksen Derby Film Fest

The Metropolitan Opera: The Magic Flute

The Ninth Annual Dirksen Derby is a fundraiser for Tyler Eklund, who was paralyzed from the neck down in a snowboard crash when he was 14. The Derby is a snowboard, splitboard, and sit-ski race down slalomed courses at Mt. Bachelor. The film fest takes the best footage from that Derby and compiles it into a series of short films.

Mozart and Christmas go together like Halloween and Tim Burton, and The Magic Flute is the perfect gift for a family member who is not too sure if they like opera. With magical costumes and masks and phenomenal music that stirs the bones, this screening of one of the Met’s most popular pieces is perfect for people of all ages.

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic BRIDGE OF SPIES: Steven Spielberg’s

CREED: Advanced word on this has Creed being hailed as one of the finest films of the year and a beautiful swan song to the character of Rocky Balboa. This film follows the son of Rocky’s greatest opponent, Apollo Creed, as Rocky trains him to become the boxer he was meant to become. While this could have been a sentimental slog, it appears the film might be a true contender. Check this week’s issue for a full review. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE GOOD DINOSAUR: While the trailers for this haven’t really been exceptional, Pixar so rarely disappoints that just having their name on it is enough to get most people into the theater. Especially following their all-time classic, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur is coming at a time where dinosaur love is peaking. The animated film follows the journey of a dinosaur and his companion, a cave-man boy who acts like a dog. The jury is still out with this one. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAYPART 2: While it does feel like this series has been going forever, Mockingjay Part 2 should give the epic series a proper sendoff. As fans of the books know, this is part of the story where everything actually happens (unlike the completely event-free Part 1), so tissues should be held at the ready. This will also be Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s final screen appearance so, even if you don’t watch the movies, it will be worth seeing just to say goodbye. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE NIGHT BEFORE: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie are wonderful in this comedy about childhood friends who might be celebrating their last Christmas together before all of their lives change forever. Fueled with drugs, alcohol and the search for a legendary party, The Night Before shows us the holiday spirit as can only be found at the bottom of a night of true debauchery. A very fun ride. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

KRAMPUS: Just in case you want to destroy Christmas for your kids, Krampus will do it for good. Dark, twisted and hilarious, this Christmas horror flick finds a bickering family under siege by the Anti-Claus, Krampus, and his demonic elves and disturbing toys. An overall damned fun time at the movies. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

LOVE THE COOPERS: An all-star Christmas comedy filled with the likes of John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Olivia Wilde. A heartwarming look at four generations of a family under the same roof trying to connect, while also dealing with unexpected guests, alcohol and all kinds of mild mannered hi-jinks. Should be fairly innocuous fun for the whole family. Old Mill Stadium and IMAX MEET THE PATELS: A documentary that follows an Indian-American man who is about to turn 30. His traditional family (extended and otherwise) takes it upon themselves to


to your health.

THE PEANUTS MOVIE: It really is about time for The Peanuts to make their return, but we’ll see if audiences can accept them in the form of 3D animation instead of hand-drawn. The story sees Snoopy and CB both facing off against their own personal nemeses while living their typical hang-dog existences. Expect parents to be just as moved (if not more so) than their kids. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

SECRET IN THEIR EYES: This is a remake of a fantastic Spanish thriller from a few years back, directed by the guy who wrote Captain Phillips and a few other great flicks. This follows a team of investigators whose lives are shattered when one of their children is murdered. If this film is half as good as the original, crime thriller lovers will have a new classic on their hands. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SPECTRE: Coming after the most financially successful and critically applauded Bond film in history, Spectre has some extremely large shoes to fill. UK reviews for the film were almost universally positive, while US critics have been less than kind so far. The US is right. Dull, dreary and airless, this is easily the worst Bond film of The Craig era. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA: Loosely based on the true story that Moby Dick is based on, In the Heart of the Sea follows the handsome Hemsworth as his vessel is attacked by a massive whale with a great vengeance and furious anger. The film is much more focused on survival than whale hunting, if that changes any minds about seeing the movie. Easily the best performance of Hemsworth’s career. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

Meet our latest

SPOTLIGHT: An amazing cast takes on the story of the Boston Globe and its investigation into John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 children. This of course led to the discovery of the Catholic Church’s cover-up of sexual abuse dozens of more times across the years. Prepare to get angry, feel vindicated and get angry all over again. One of the best films of the year. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

Natalia Usatii, MD St. Charles Sleep Center St. Charles Medical Group is pleased to welcome Natalia Usatii, MD, to our team of providers. Dr. Usatii is a graduate of Nicolae Testemitanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Moldova, and was a practicing neurologist there for two years before moving to the United States. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Yale University School of Medicine’s Danbury Hospital, and most recently, a fellowship in sleep medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. In her free time, Dr. Usatii enjoys cooking, hiking and running, as well as spending time with her 19-year-old daughter—a student at Boston University—and her husband, a hospitalist with St. Charles Medical Group. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Usatii, please call 541-706-6905.

TRUMBO: The always excellent Bryan Cranston plays Dalton Trumbo, the screenwriter behind Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Spartacus and many more. The film follows Trumbo during the Hollywood Blacklist days and the difficulties in his life that accrued because of his alleged ties to communism. That dark era in Hollywood is a fascinating one and worthy of a dozen motion pictures. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN: As much as we collectively love the story of Frankenstein and the work of James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, the trailers for this one are just plain bad. We already had a lackluster Universal Monster origin story recently with Dracula Untold, but now we’re getting the CG enhanced slog through Dr. Frankenstein and Igor’s mythology. Everything about this should be cool (especially with Radcliffe playing Igor), but seriously, have you seen that trailer? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ADVICE GODDESS Going Scold Turkey

—Formerly Volcanic

It’s really smart to “take 10” when you’re angry—and not just because it takes that long to get the gasoline, pour it all over your boyfriend’s Xbox, and light it on fire. As I explained recently, screaming at a guy—a verbal attack—launches the same fight-or-flight defense system as trying to use the guy’s face as a bar rag. And once a person’s adrenaline gets let out of the gate, there’s no coaxing it back. That’s why Braveheart would be a Monty Python movie if the Scots, upon doing their battle cry, stopped, looked at one another, and then called to the English: “Say, luvvies…on second thought… shall we all put down these silly battle-axes, wash our faces, and chat out our differences o’er a cup o’ tea?” As for why your emotional makeover led your boyfriend to go more Mother Teresa than angry motherfucker, social psychologist C. Daniel Batson explains that we have two distinct emotional responses to perceiving another person in need. The first, “personal distress,” leads us to have an “egoistic” motivation—to focus on ourselves and how we can escape our own uncomfortable feelings. The other response is empathy—or really, “empathic concern,” which leads to an altruistic motivation: wanting to comfort the other person. You’re more likely to elicit the empathic response when your boyfriend doesn’t need to mount a defense—that is, when you approach him with quiet hurt and disappointment instead of like a hornet with boobs and a purse. Kudos to you for recognizing that having a feeling isn’t reason to hop on it and ride it like a hoverboard. But in light of how gnarly-hard impulse control can be, what’s most impressive are your adult timeouts— putting space between having a feeling and acting on it. It is good for your boyfriend to believe he can always count on you—but not to explode and take his hand off like black-market fireworks you bought with the possum jerky out of the trunk of some guy’s car.

the more my boyfriend does what I want. Are guys so defiant, like little boys, that if you tell them what to do, they won’t do it? Curiously, if, after saying what I want, I add “but do what you want,” he usually does the thing I was hoping for. I don’t get it.

“Hey, baby, let’s role-play. I’ll be Stalin, and you be the tens of millions of peasants he sent to labor camps!” Pick one—having a relationship or ruling the world’s tiniest totalitarian state. There are ways to get a man to do your bidding, and barking orders at him is among the least successful. (This is not the kind of doggy-style a man is hoping for.) Social psychologist Jack Brehm’s research on what he deemed “psychological reactance” finds what anybody with a 2-year-old knows all too well: The more you try to pressure somebody to do something the more they will “react”—that is, resist being controlled. You can use what you’ve discovered to stealth-control a guy—trick him into bending to your will by being all, “I dunno… do what you want…” However, what’s better is not needing to control him. You can get to that point by being consistently giving. This tends to cue our psychological mechanism for reciprocity—our internal accounting system that keeps track of gifts and favors we’ve received and bugs us when we’re in the red (kind of like a bill collector who demon-calls our conscience instead of our phone). And, sure, this reciprocity thing can also be used to pull a guy’s strings. But, especially over time, we seem able to sniff out people’s motives. So see that you’re giving out of love rather than out of a desire to, uh, nanomanage (because micromanagement is for slackers). When generosity of spirit is what’s driving you, you’re likely to inspire the guy to give back—wanting to make you happy, as opposed to wanting to get your “honey-dos” out of the way so he can tie up two guards and tunnel out of the relationship with a sharpened toothbrush.

I have a bad temper, and I’m trying to change. Now when I’m mad, I leave the room to compose myself. Recently, my boyfriend said something that really upset me. Taking a break allowed me to calmly explain that he’d hurt my feelings. He apologized, and I could tell he truly felt bad—much worse than if I had raged on him. Can you explain this?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus was a pioneer thinker whose ideas helped pave the way for the development of science. Believe nothing, he taught, unless you can evaluate it through your personal observation and logical analysis. Using this admirable approach, he determined that the size of our sun is about two feet in diameter. I’m guessing that you have made comparable misestimations about at least two facts of life, Capricorn. They seem quite reasonable but are very wrong. The good news is that you will soon be relieved of those mistakes. After some initial disruption, you will feel liberated. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian inventor Thomas Edison owned 1,093 patents. Nicknamed “The Wizard of Menlo Park,” he devised the first practical electrical light bulb, the movie camera, the alkaline storage battery, and many more useful things. The creation he loved best was the phonograph. It was the first machine in history that could record and reproduce sound. Edison bragged that no one else had ever made such a wonderful instrument. It was “absolutely original.” I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because I think you’re due for an outbreak of absolute originality. What are the most unique gifts you have to offer? In addition to those you already know about, new ones may be ready to emerge. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Here’s an experiment that makes good astrological sense for you to try in the coming weeks. Whenever you feel a tinge of frustration, immediately say, “I am an irrepressible source of power and freedom and love.” Anytime you notice a trace of inadequacy rising up in you, or a touch of blame, or a taste of anger, declare, “I am an irresistible magnet for power and freedom and love.” If you’re bothered by a mistake you made, or a flash of ignorance expressed by another person, or a maddening glitch in the flow of the life force, stop what you’re doing, interrupt the irritation, and proclaim, “I am awash in power and freedom and love.” ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Happiness sneaks through a door you didn’t know that you left open,” said actor John Barrymore. I hope you’ve left open a lot of those doors, Aries. The more there are, the happier you will be. This is the week of all weeks when joy, pleasure, and even zany bliss are likely to find their ways into your life from unexpected sources and unanticipated directions. If you’re lucky, you also have a few forgotten cracks and neglected gaps where fierce delights and crisp wonders can come wandering in.



2754 NW Crossing Dr, Suite 102 (Across from La Rosa) • 541.647.6911

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What state of mind do you desire the most? What is the quality of being that you aspire to inhabit more and more as you grow older? Maybe it’s the feeling of being deeply appreciated, or the ability to see things as they really are, or an intuitive wisdom about how to cultivate vibrant relationships. I invite you to set an intention to cultivate this singular experience with all your passion and ingenuity. The time is right. Make a pact with yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Like Metallica jamming with Nicki Minaj and Death Cab for Cutie on a passage from Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute, you are redefining the meanings of the

words “hybrid,” “amalgam,” and “hodgepodge.” You’re mixing metaphors with panache. You’re building bridges with cheeky verve. Some of your blends are messy mishmashes, but more often they are synergistic successes. With the power granted to me by the gods of mixing and matching, I hereby authorize you to keep splurging on the urge to merge. This is your special time to experiment with the magic of combining things that have rarely or never been combined.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I hope you can figure out the difference between the fake cure and the real cure. And once you know which is which, I hope you will do the right thing rather than the sentimental thing. For best results, keep these considerations in mind: The fake cure may taste sweeter than the real one. It may also be better packaged and more alluringly promoted. In fact, the only advantage the real cure may have over the fake one is that it will actually work to heal you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s a sinuous, serpentine quality about you these days. It’s as if you are the elegant and crafty hero of an epic myth set in the ancient future. You are sweeter and saucier than usual, edgier and more extravagantly emotive. You are somehow both a repository of tantalizing secrets and a fount of arousing revelations. As I meditate on the magic you embody, I am reminded of a passage from Laini Taylor’s fantasy novel Daughter of Smoke & Bone: “She tastes like nectar and salt. Nectar and salt and apples. Pollen and stars and hinges. She tastes like fairy tales. Swan maiden at midnight. Cream on the tip of a fox’s tongue. She tastes like hope.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I bought an old horoscope book at a garage sale for 25 cents. The cover was missing and some pages were water-damaged, so parts of it were hard to decipher. But the following passage jumped out at me: “In romantic matters, Virgos initially tend to be cool, even standoffish. Their perfectionism may interfere with their ability to follow through on promising beginnings. But if they ever allow themselves to relax and go further, they will eventually ignite. And then, watch out! Their passion will generate intense heat and light.” I suspect that this description may apply to you in the coming weeks. Let’s hope you will trust your intuition about which possibilities warrant your caution and which deserve your opening.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “The secret of being a bore is to tell everything,” said French writer Voltaire. I agree, and add these thoughts: To tell everything also tempts you to wrongly imagine that you have everything completely figured out. Furthermore, it may compromise your leverage in dicey situations where other people are using information as a weapon. So the moral of the current story is this: Don’t tell everything! I realize this could be hard, since you are a good talker these days; your ability to express yourself is at a peak. So what should you do? Whenever you speak, aim for quality over quantity. And always weave in a bit of mystery.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Ducks are the most unflappable creatures I know. Cats are often regarded as the top practitioners of the “I don’t give a f---” attitude, but I think ducks outshine them. When domestic felines exhibit their classic aloofness, there’s sometimes a subtext of annoyance or contempt. But ducks are consistently as imperturbable as Zen masters. Right now, as I gaze out my office window, I’m watching five of them swim calmly, with easygoing nonchalance, against the swift current of the creek in the torrential rain. I invite you to be like ducks in the coming days. Now is an excellent time to practice the high art of truly not giving a f---.

Jeff started working at a gambling casino in Atlantic City. “You’ve gone over to the dark side!” I kidded. He acknowledged that 90 percent of the casino’s visitors lose money gambling. On the bright side, he said, 95 percent of them leave happy. I don’t encourage you to do this kind of gambling in the near future, Sagittarius. It’s true that you will be riding a lucky streak. But smarter, surer risks will be a better way to channel your good fortune. So here’s the bottom line: In whatever way you choose to bet or speculate, don’t let your lively spirits trick you into relying on pure impulsiveness. Do the research. Perform your due diligence. It’s not enough just to be entertained. The goal is to both have fun and be successful.

Tips for Selling Your Home in Winter By Nick Nayne

1. Price your home to sell. It helps tremendously to price your home according to the market--keeping in mind that winter is a slower season. Pricing it higher and thinking the market will take more time may result in your home sitting on market for too long. 2. Maximize your curb appeal. When leaves fall off trees, your home is more exposed. If needed, clean the gutters and rake leaves and check for any touch up paint. This will be the first impression of your home that buyers will have. 3. Keep walkways and driveways clear of snow and debris. A well maintained home is important for safety and the comfort of buyers coming to see the property and minimizes interior damage from people walking in from bad weather. 4. Clean your windows and open the blinds and drapes for maximum light. It is a good idea to make your home as light and bright as possible and turn on the lights as well. Having sparkling windows is important as well. Clean windows sparkle on the outside and extra lighting adds cheer and a feeling of spaciousness, particularly important for smaller homes. 5. Put up holiday decorations. People like to see that their Christmas tree fits nicely in the home, but don’t go overboard. I have seen potential buyers pass on homes because they could not picture how their Christmas tree would fit in the home. In a small home with limited space, a narrower tree can fit just

about anywhere. Don’t forget to turn on the tree lights. 6. Turn on the heat and fireplace. Walking into a warm and cozy home makes buyers feel welcome and turning on the gas fireplace is especially nice. 7. Place a floor mat in your entryway. This is important when it is snowing because snowmelt chemicals can stick to people’s shoes, which can damage your floors. If the weather is bad, you can leave a note asking them to remove their shoes and leave them on the indoor mat or provide booties to cover their shoes. 8. Consider hiring a professional stager/ interior decorator. Spending a little for a consultation on how to unclutter and most advantageously present your home can be invaluable by adding appeal to prospective buyers. 9. Hire a reliable real estate agent. This should be someone who will be available during the holidays and takes top-notch pictures of your home to maximize the online appeal of your listing. Many people look at homes online before contacting a realtor, so good pictures are very important. 10. Consider offering some owner financing. Today it is harder for first-time buyers to save for down payments because rental rates are often higher than a typical mortgage payment. Wages have remained pretty stagnant, too. You can get a higher rate of interest than the bank pays and your investment is secured against the property.

11. Relax and enjoy the holidays. You have now done about everything you can, so sit back and relax. Your home should sell fairly quickly, but if it doesn’t, remember a new year and spring are just around the corner.

Prospective pot-preneurs learn the rules and regs By Steve Holmes

he Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) should perhaps be known as the OLCCC since it is now taking the lead role in regulating Oregon’s cannabis in addition to its liquor. Last Thursday, the OLCC held a workshop in Bend to help explain its new regulations and licensing process for recreational cannabis business owners.

The Bend workshop is one of a series of seven such workshops held around the state in December. The locations include Medford, Eugene, Salem, and Portland (Portland gets three workshops). These are intended as last-minute help for those business owners who are planning to help crash the OLCC’s online application tool when it starts accepting applications on Jan. 4, 2016. The workshop in Bend was well attended, with nearly 250 people asking all sorts of interesting questions about the cannabis business in Oregon. Given how many Oregonians are lining up to get into the cannabis business, one obvious question is whether there is any limit on the number of business licenses that will be issued. According to Amanda Borup, an OLCC official involved in the cannabis business licensure process, the OLCC will not impose a limit on the number of licenses it grants “at this time.” Any cap on cannabis businesses in Oregon would have to come from the Legislature. Unfortunately, the Democrat-controlled Legislature has shown a penchant for messing with legal cannabis, as it did when it passed a law allowing certain cities and counties to “opt-out” of having cannabis

businesses. But a major goal of cannabis legalization was to eliminate the black market, and the only way to do that is to have enough legal businesses to serve the market. So a cap in cannabis businesses would seem to be inconsistent with the goal of driving cannabis consumers to legal businesses. But it remains to be seen whether the Legislature will be able to understand how that logic follows from the prior policy decision to legalize and regulate cannabis in Oregon. However, most questions from attendees, and most of the information provided by OLCC, center around the most significant features of OLCC’s regulatory scheme. To start, the OLCC rules include detailed requirements for security and surveillance systems at cannabis businesses. All cannabis products will be laboratory tested before retail sale, and all products will be tracked “from seed to sale.” The “seed to sale” tracking system is still being developed, but according to OLCC officials, will require training for business owners, who will be primarily responsible for operating the system. The OLCC has also prepared a “Business Readiness Guidebook for Oregon Recreational Marijuana Operations.” The guidebook seems intended to be a comprehensive business guide, and includes information on employment, land use, local building codes, workplace safety, environmental, and agricultural issues that are likely to arise in cannabis businesses. The guide is available online at the OLCC website.
