Re: “Uncle Sam’s River Dance

As Guerneville residents we try to support our community. We set up our packed in chairs and bought 2 chicken sandwiches for $28.00. Then spent $14.00 for a beer and a very tiny glass of wine served from a box. As a dj boomed his music from one side of tbe street the amps on the laser stage competed with music of their own. We waited for something spectacular or even just patriotic to happen. We reluctantly picked up our chairs and joined the multitudes of families fleeing what whas evolving into a block party rave.There was absolutely nothing "4th of July" about the whole thing. Very Disappointed.

Re: “Judge Brad Seligman Lecture: Big Law, Small Law: Old & New Civil Rights in the 21st Century

Judicial temperament - none!
Brad Seligman turned family court into a forum for reckless witch hunts against parties. He acted like a king, not a judge. Ironically, this purported crusader for civil rights trampled on constitutions protections for individuals left, right and center. Power corrupts. I am glad to see him out of family courts.

Re: “Retrospect Gallery

This furniture is just junk. It smells and they overcharge for what they offer. The shop keeper is usually eating or drinking when you go in and has no time to help with questions. Will not be going in again, nor will I recommend to my other designer friends.

Re: “Judge Brad Seligman Lecture: Big Law, Small Law: Old & New Civil Rights in the 21st Century

Judge Seligman is a myopic civil rights attorney poorly disguised as a judgel. His desire to implement his civil rights politics into the framework of family law is unethical and in complete disregard for written and tested family law. He should be removed from the bench immediately.

Re: “Viva Cuba

If there were a negative star rating, this "performance" merits it. It is a ridiculous ensemble of (mostly) untalented singers and...we'll call them dancers. I think my 8-year-old and slumber party friends would have come up with better dialogue and dance moves. At one point I thought I was watching an aerobics class. They looked to each other for cues, were constantly out of synch and not centered on the stage, and one guy was even chewing gum as he danced! Come on now...these are the basics, no need to go to Juilliard to know this. The lyrics were banal and a constant overkill of the introductory message relayed to the audience on an old-fashioned film screen in the far background. Perhaps the props and stage were going for the minimalist look, but it felt more like we were at the first day of rehearsal than opening night. From the lack or originality in the costumes and set design (there was none), to the disconnected music which sounded like nothing you'd associate with Cuba, and all of the non-latino people declaring proudly that "they are the spirit of the cuban people," it was the most surprising theatrical disappointment I've ever had, even for what one is expecting in community theatre. Another poignant example of the pain: At one point there was a song addressing the shift from capitalism to communism and the analogy was conveyed Sesame Street-style by replacing the M in Me with a W for We...and the melody to match. Wow, really? Two of the main vocalists had pleasant, very powerful and melodic voices with much potential, but require voice training to completely master their god-given talent. At least there was that. The musical would have been much better if they got rid of the singing and dancing and just stuck to the documentary on the screen with the narrator. There were issues there, too, but I'll stop here.

Re: “Green Music Center

The Emperor has no clothes.

I attended the Karina Gauvin concert tonight. My first time in the concert hall. I find it bland, clinical, and far from cozy. The seats leave a lot to be desired for a long concert, and the acoustics, that everyone is wetting themselves over, were mediocre at best. I sat in the middle, the back and the front sections. They each had their merits but nowhere was the sound great. Now Karina speaks pretty quietly I'll admit, but niether my wife or I could understand a word from the 14th row and had to move to the 7th row to hear her speak. You sit in a spiritually cold room, looking out into the lobby in seats that start to wear after a while. It may be great when it's finished, but I wont rush back. For $145M this place should be more comfortable than any decent concert hall. It's possibly the most un-user-friendly concert hall in the world.

Re: “Little Folkies Family Band

"I asked my almost three year old daughter to describe the music of Little Folkies, and she said, “It makes me feel happy.” The original songs weave an idyllic country landscape of rolling hills, enchanted animals and imaginary journeys. Their music captures the ineffable delight and wonder of childhood, but it’s not solely for children. It’s music for families – music to be loved, sang and remembered by all, for lifetimes. The classes bring the genuine sentiment of their music to life, with abundant singing-along, dancing, clapping and stomping. These happenings are as beloved by my child as they are by me. The spirit of their sound is best summed up by one of their lyrics,“ all join in and gather round while we make that joyful sound.”

Re: “Eyes Wide Open

RE: Eyes Wide Open August 10-16, 2016

I greatly appreciate your insightful piece about law enforcement's continuous efforts to withhold critically important video evidence from public scrutiny.
However, I would like to address an oft-repeated misunderstanding that seriously muddies the question. You write: "The ongoing debate over public access to police body- and dash-cam videos can be viewed through the lens that sees a national tug-of-war over whether black lives or blue lives MATTER MORE." [emphasis mine]
I don't qualify for membership in Black Lives Matter but I do belong to a number of allied groups and according to published BLM information that I have seen, that movement has never suggested "that your lives matter any less" but rather that "BLACK LIVES MATTER JUST AS MUCH." [emphasis mine]
Another slogan that has recently taken traction among some allies is, "How can All Lives Matter when Black and Brown lives don't?"
This essential point is frequently missed by those blinded by white privilege but it's easily understood when the will to do so is there.

Re: “Hearts and Bones Band

Hearts and Bones is hard working rock and roll band who feature quality original music and a handful of the classics. The Forestville Club seems like it would be the perfect place to watch these guys work their magic.

"...cooking Italian food and talking Rasta." Rasta pasta!
I live on the same property. It's a nice little community. Mooka, Nate and the bunch are great folks, and the somewhat rural ambience is sweet. I encourage those who seek recording, mastering, concert sound, etc. services to check out Prairie Sun, and those wanting to learn the craft ought to consider Prairie Sun's internship program.
