"Blueberries for F'n Sal"
"Where the F- Are the wild things?
Nice writeup! I had no idea how intuned Mikey Hart is with the universe, not that it's in the least surprising. What a rad concept though: converting lightwaves into sonic frequencies. Can't wait for the album...
Speaking of books, here's an author event of a local author:
LOVE AND TERROR IN THE MIDDLE EAST by Dr. Frank Romano, author event:
- Saturday, May 12th, 2012 from 1-3 pm, at Barnes and Noble Booksellers, 700 4th
Street, Santa Rosa.
The book “Love and Terror in the Middle East” is about the author’s recent quest for spiritual peace among religions in the Middle East, notably highlighting interfaith activities in Israel and Palestine. He takes readers to the middle of the Jenin Refugee Camp as well as Hebron and Ramallah, where he spoke with many former prisoners of the Israeli government.
Traveling between these areas has been risky: he has been harassed and arrested by the Palestinian police, harassed by Israeli soldiers and attacked by West Bank settlers. Last month, a peace activist friend of Romano’s, an Israeli Jew, was murdered in the West Bank. Several months before that, another of his interfaith peace activist friends was murdered in Jerusalem.
The author believes that from the Jenin Refugee Camp, the heartthrob of the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis, will flow the river of peace that will reach the four corners of the world.
The book also delves into his agonized divorce with his first wife and separation from his three children after she fled to the United States, which ironically becomes a springboard for the author to seek his passion, interfaith peace in the Holy Land through love and understanding. In the meantime he meets another woman with whom he has a daughter. But his activities in Israel and the West Bank give rise to conflict with his new family. His passion for interfaith peace inspired the closing of his law firm in Marseille and the permanent separation from his partner and their daughter in Paris over his dedication to traveling to the Middle East and organizing marches and dialogues for peace in the middle of the conflict.
Then the author takes us to the middle of the Occupied Territories, to the West Bank City of Jenin, for a peace march in the place that offered the greatest resistance to Israeli soldiers during confrontations over the past 20 years.
His search thereafter for interfaith peace interweaves with his sometimes tragic personal life, hints of love and the desperation after a series of lovers and broken relationships. His life sometimes resembles more a personal battlefield than a peacemaking mission as he continues to look for love among Muslims, Jews and Christians in the Holy Land.
Concerning my first book, “Storm Over Morocco”, I earlier was interviewed live by FOX NEWS 26 and FOX 4 NEWS, Houston September 4th and Kansas City September 6, 2008 respectively and was a participant during a panel discussion concerning spiritual issues broadcasted live by a Houston Time Warner television station. Finally, I gave a power point presentation about my book and interfaith activities at the Mid-Manhattan Library in New York City on October 13, 2007. In addition, on January 4th, 2008, Brady Douglas and Jennifer Kielman, News Anchors, of NBC Channel 56 on KETK interviewed me during a 5 O’clock News broadcast, in particular about the situation in the Middle East.
Author has just returned from the Middle East.

Hopefully someone or more than one will make a nice video of this ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyQ27hn1en8
Amen and kudos, Gabe.
Thank you for such an honest and open piece on the sensualised death of an icon.
Great piece, Gabe, probably the best I've read.
my mother's maiden name was rice. rice-a-roni was a popular nickname.. you know.. the san francisco treat..
That last sentence in the review didn't make any sense. Why does the author assume that pilots wouldn't talk a fair amount of smack when in the act of shooting down an enemy? Prayer before going up into the skies would seem like a commonplace act as well, especially so when one considers that the odds were fairly good that they wouldn't be returning. The reason for the CGI is simple; there simply aren't enough of the vintage planes depicted flying these days to make it practical to use them. So George Lucas used WW2 footage as the idea for Star Wars. How does that detract from the movie? There's nothing wrong with adding a little melodrama to make a movie more palatable to the movie goers that know very little about the war. The reviewer would have one believe that the movie was a bust with regard to its historical accuracy when really what he didn't like was that it pulled at heartstrings which didn't sit well with him. My father was a Tuskegee Airman and I'm quite sure that if he were alive today, he wouldn't have had nearly as much of a problem with the way his comrades were depicted as the reviewer did. Totally lame review, or rather, reviewer.
Very beautiful and well written.
Thank you, Maureen R. Agius.

I thought the Spreckels Spring Awakening was one of the best musicals I've seen in Sonoma County, closely followed by the Raven production of Rent a a couple of summers ago. Both were relentlessly modern in music and style, with highly committed actors and great bands. Spring Awakening has better leads.
ALBINO! would like to clarify that there is no partnership between the band and the "Story of Stuff" project at present. We are simply performing a growing suite of songs that were inspired by the videos. Thanks to Jacqui for the feature and all who came out to make our Hopmonk show a huge success!
Nice article. Albino! has so much going, I love the band especially the dancing! But for things to really change a lot needs to happen, hopefully for the good of us humans and the world as a whole.

My Mother's maiden name is Musselman. Thankfully, we didn't go with that one.
Hi, through no fault of my own was injured and unconscious for many weeks, a few years later I found yoga. Yoga gave me life but almost took my life away; many yoga techniques’ are excellent for the health.
Stick with simple yoga, don’t try to understand how it works and it will treat you very well. Paularmstrong5@hotmail.com
How refreshing! Bringing together and supporting intelligent and creative folks where we can celebrate music, art & diversity. Exactly what Santa Rosa needs. I wish you success, Evan!
