Rancho Palos Verdes electronic artist and

producer starRo earns a Grammy nod just

five years after abandoning music

by Esther Kang

Shinya “Straight Arrow” Mizoguchi, better known as starRo, is rising up the musical

ranks with his heartfelt concoctions of soul, R&B, jazz and electronica. In five years’

time, the Tokyo-native multi-instrumentalist has gone from an unknown bedroom producer

with a day job as a project manager for a Torrance tech company to becoming the

first Japanese electronic artist to be nominated for a Grammy. Touring internationally and

shooting commercials for Beats by Dre are some of the itinerary items that comprise his

new normal.

Still, the 41-year-old father of three stays grounded. Mizoguchi, who with his family has

lived in Rancho Palos Verdes for five years, recently DJ’ed at the Palos Verdes Education

Foundation’s annual fundraiser, where one of the main auction items was a private party

with Mizoguchi as the DJ. His two sons are first and fifth graders at Point Vicente Elementary

School; his daughter is a preschooler at St. Peter’s by the Sea.

Until about a month ago, Mizoguchi, who last fall released his first full-length album

Monday, was working out of his home studio. Now with a new ground zero in LA’s arts

district, he finds himself appreciating the peaceful nature of Palos Verdes.

“The school system is obviously the biggest thing, but I find myself really enjoying life

here now,” Mizoguchi said. “When you play at the club and go back late at night tired, the

next morning you wake up and see a completely different nature explosion. That’s really

cool. I really enjoy this contrast of life right now."

Raised in Tokyo, Mizoguchi grew up in a musical environment, inundated with jazz

records and the sounds of his father, a “semi-professional” jazz pianist, performing at home.

At 7, Mizoguchi began taking piano lessons — by his own

volition, not his parents’, he noted — but by middle

school, he had lost interest in classical music. With leanings

toward top 40, rock and dance music, he began

teaching himself other instruments and formed a band

with friends from school. They mostly covered their favorite

rock bands, from Japan and abroad.

When they began composing original music, Mizoguchi

took it upon himself to make a demo for the band. That

was his first exposure to creating music on a computer,

he said.

“I pretty much played every part — bass, drums, guitar

and a little vocal — and that was the beginning of my

track making,” he said. “I realized I enjoyed making the

demo more than being in a band, so I started being more

of a producer. I did that for a while, just as a hobby and

maybe to show some of my friends."

For many years, he worked brutal hours as a manager

at a tech company, which left little time for a life outside

of work. About 10 years ago, he and his wife decided to

leave Tokyo’s workaholic culture in search of a more balanced

life. After a weeklong visit to LA, they knew they

had found their new home.

“It seemed like this is a chill, laid-back place, and people

seemed to enjoy their lives more,” Mizoguchi said.

“We didn’t really expect anything; we basically just tried

to change our lifestyle.”

Mizoguchi had no intention of pursuing a music career

28 PeninsulaJune 2017


in LA, he said. He was unfamiliar with the music

scene and had sold all his gear back in Tokyo. For

three to four years, he worked his job at a tech company

in Torrance, striving to build a new foundation

for him and his family. Not knowing a single person

in the new city, he never went out to explore the clubbing

or live music scene, he said.

“We pretty much started from ground zero,” he said.

“Music was not even a priority back then.”

It wasn’t until a friend from Tokyo came to visit that

Mizoguchi had a proper night out. His friend, curious

about LA’s clubbing scene, urged him to find a spot

for them, so he went online and discovered Low End

Theory, LA’s seminal weekly event featuring up-andcoming

beat makers. As a big fan of A Tribe Called

Quest, Mizoguchi said he had initially thought it

would be a hip hop event (Low End Theory is the name

of the hip hop group’s most famous album). His life,

he said confidently, changed for good that night.

“It was experimental and also mind-blowing,” he

said. “Mind-blowing in the way that I’d never heard

any music like that, and I’d never seen a producer, a

trackmaker like myself, get on the stage under a spotlight

… Usually to me, the artist has always been like

the singer or rapper, but there I realized that even producers

can be an artist.”

Newly inspired, Mizoguchi began producing music

again and sharing his tracks with the burgeoning online

community of Soundcloud. There, he made hundreds

of new friends — fellow beatmakers and

producers — and began accruing tens of thousands of

plays with his fresh take on soul-based electronica and

tasteful remixes. In 2013, he was discovered and

signed by Soulection, the famous LA-based online

radio station and label for inventive producers such as

himself. The rest, he said, is history. Tours, festivals

and numerous musical collaborations have followed.

He has since performed at Low End

Theory three times, marking a full circle.

“That was my dream, my original

dream,” he said.

Last year, he was approached to remix

an a cappella song called “Heavy Star

Movin” by The Silver Lake Chorus. Having

heard that many producers gave up on

the difficult endeavor, Mizoguchi said he

gave it his full effort. To his surprise, his beautiful

remix garnered him a Grammy nomination

this past February. His stardom has since

been in full swing, particularly in his home

country of Japan.

“I didn’t realize that it was such a big deal

in Japan,” he said. “So it’s kind of strange to

see myself in major newspapers in Japan. A

lot of my old friends didn’t even know I had

quit my day job and was making music.”

Today, Mizoguchi is regularly on the

road, performing across the U.S. and

abroad. He returns to Tokyo to perform

once a month and has no plans to slow

down anytime soon, he said. His next

album is due out in the fall. PEN

The Peninsula High School surf team. Photo by PSS Imaging, Inc.

An emerging generation of talented young surfers is riding high on Peninsula High’s surf team

by Ed Solt

John “Doc” Ball founded the Palos Verdes Surf Club in 1935, laying

the foundation for the surfing lifestyle and making Palos

Verdes a hotbed for surf culture. Ball documented early California

surf history in his book,“California Lifestyle,” published in

1946. His photos beautifully capture the easygoing lifestyle of the

burgeoning surf scene, prewar surfers enjoying Waikiki-esque

waves, oftentimes sharing waves.

More recently, even as the Palos Verdes has attracted unwanted

national attention for surf localism, a less noted undercurrent has

emerged — a new generation tapped into the stoke of Ball’s original

surf gang, a stoke that’s leading these young surfers to do great

things in all areas of their lives.

Peninsula High’s surf team is an original member of the South

Bay Scholastic Surfing Association (formerly known as the South

Bay High School Surf League), founded 25 years ago. Notable

alumni include Holly Beck, a professional surfer who paved the way

for women surfers in the 2000s; Chris Del Moro, who found success

as a professional lifestyle surfer (sans contests) and eco-friendly entrepreneur;

former professional longboarder and local restaurateur

Chris Bredesen; his brother, big wave rider and LA County Lifeguard

Scotty Bredesen; and professional surfer Alex Gray.

Gray found a place in Hawaii’s notoriously difficult North Shore

line-ups, charging mountainous waves while performing small wave

acrobatics, all the while showing a keen understanding of the inner

limits of a tube. In addition to his surfing accolades (he’s been fea-

tured on surf magazine covers and in surf movies for almost 20 years),

Gray’s entertaining personality has made him a spokesman for the sport.

He’s hosted numerous surfing events, including the prestigious Surfer Magazine

“Surfer Poll” awards.

In the midst of his jet-setter, surf lifestyle (one that’s taken him to far

flung places such as Alaska’s outer islands), Gray makes time to work with

his former surf team.

“I'm always so excited watching the surf team kids compete,” Gray wrote

in an email from Fiji. “Whether they win or lose, it's great seeing them

face their nerves and fearful emotions through surfing. We all go through

so many life moments as teenagers. It's a time when many emotions are

foreign and hard to understand. That's where surfing really shines. It can

be a vessel of self-confidence, helping you to achieve things you never

dreamed of.”

Peninsula freshmen Colin Macleod has only been surfing for two years,

but he’s rapidly progressing on his Dennis Jarvis-shaped Spyder surfboards.

Junior Isabel Frandsen has perfected a distinctive style on her Chris Ruddy

Surfboards noserider and 5-foot-5 mini shred sled. Senior Cole Yoshida is

a multi-discipline surfer, shredding with either a Lost, Pyzel, or Roberts

under his feet. On the longer end of the spectrum, he perches on the nose

on either his Kris Hall-shaped Flower Surfboard or his Swift, shaped by

the late Don Swift.

“I first met Alex at a rally he was leading for a PV Skate Park at City

Hall,” Frandsen said. “I was so stoked to meet my first pro surfer.” (Gray

was instrumental in establishing PV’s first skatepark — in a community

where skateboarding had been banned since the ‘70s).

These kids do not possess one ounce of the slacker-stoney-stereotype of

Sean Penn’s character “Spicoli,” from the early ‘80s teen comedy “Fast

Times at Ridgemont High.” To be a part of the surf team one must possess

commitment.

“Surf class begins at sunrise. Having the discipline to be up at dark and

in the cold, equipment ready, with a good attitude is something the coach

expects,” Gray said. “The surf team allows for a positive, healthy outlet. I

want to pass on the fun of surfing and its benefits to help guide you through

life. For some it's competitive, and for others it's a hobby. Either way, we

are lucky as surfers to have the ocean as our teacher. I hope each student

allows surfing to be a teacher for all aspects in life.”

Macleod is known as the most surf-fevered of the bunch, winning his

team’s “Most Dedicated Surfer” award.

“It’s all about getting in the water every day and having fun,” he said.

“Even if it’s onshore and small, make the best of the situation. It’s part of

my daily routine. It wakes me up for school.”

Macleod has perfect school attendance. For Yoshida, the discipline

needed for surf team is applied to other sports, particularly his golf game.

He’ll be heading to University of Hawai'i at Manoa on a golfing scholarship.

“Waking up early to go surf and catch a few waves in the morning has

influenced my golf greatly because it has trained me to get up every morning

before six, and it’s helped when you have an early tee time and you

have to get there even earlier to warm up,” Yoshida said. “It just makes it

a lot easier because it feels like second nature. It even helps if you have a

later tee time because waking up early gives you time to have a proper diet

for a full day of golf and it gives you time to get a little more warmed up

before even getting to the course.”

For Frandsen, surf team is just a part of her morning routine, something

that defines her as a person. She’s up at 5:15 a.m. and out the door to attend

a 5:45 a.m. daily seminar at her church. After church, she returns

home to wake up her younger sister to get her ready for her church semi-

nar at 6:30 a.m.

“My sister needs a little more sleep,” she said, with a laugh. “I have a

real structured morning. I also make sure I have on a good watch. From

6:45 a.m. until 8 a.m., I’m surfing. It’s my morning reflection and meditation

time.”

As Gray noted, surfing is a guiding light that helps some kids navigate

the turbulent waters of adolescence.

“Being a part of the surf team gave me a sense of purpose,” Gray said. “I

dealt with a lot during high school. I can say I was lost at times on the

early path of life. But the surf team was always there for me. It was something

that made me strive to be a better student and surfer. I really enjoyed

the feeling of pride for our team that we collectively instilled and acted

upon together.”

In addition to pushing each other out in the water, the team prides itself

on killing it in school. The team possesses

one of the highest collective team GPAs of

all Peninsula’s sport teams. Macleod considers

homework a breeze compared to “jumping

into the chill of morning surf.” Yoshida

is not affected by “senioritis.” For his last semester,

AP Psychology, Marine Biology Honors

Calculus, and English 4 fill his schedule.

Frandsen is planning to attend BYU Hawaii.

“Surfing has taught me to push beyond

your comfort zone, to paddle out and go

big,” she said. “When it came to choosing

classes, I took harder subjects — they have

become my favorite classes. As my coaches

Bryan Hemlrich, Bill Macleod, and Alex say,

‘Always look two seconds ahead on a wave.’

It’s another aspect of surfing I apply to life.”

She also volunteers with organizations

such as Walk on Water, which provides

ocean therapy for special needs children.

“My first time as an instructor, I took a kid

out for his first time on a surfboard and he

pearled hard after I pushed him into a

wave,” she said. “When he came up, he was

frowning, about to cry, then began laughing.

I knew from there I wanted to get into occupational

therapy, helping young kids with

special needs. Much like ocean therapy is to

a special needs child, I want to make the

world a little better with one little push.”

34

In his senior year, Gray was named “Athlete of the Year.” It was the first

time the award went to a surfer.

“That award is something I hold high in my surfing accomplishments.

As the captain of the team, I truly felt a responsibility to do all I could to

get our team to the top. Some of my dearest memories are with my brother

surfing early mornings,” Gray said (Gray lost his brother at the age of 21).

“He would drive me to each practice. I got to hang out with the older guys

who were my heroes because I was with my brother. Having him to push

me in the surf was the most influential aspect I had. I still find myself

thanking him for those moments.”

With three years to go, Macleod is just generally stoked to be on the

team.

“Banquets, contests, meets — it’s all fun,” he said. “I’ve been on club

soccer teams; everybody is in pursuit of individual glory. In surf team, it’s

all about the team — which is weird because field sports are considered

team sports and surfing is an individual sport, yet we’re all supportive. My

goal is to improve and be able to compete with South, Palos Verdes High,

and Costa.”

Yoshida considers competing in the state competitions at Oceanside his

fondest surf team memory.

“I spent a few days down there with Coach and some of my close friends

on the team,” he said. “It was a great opportunity to surf against a very

competitive field of surfers.”

You can find Frandsen continually sharing stoke. She’s on the hunt for

new recruits and recently organized a booth for an eighth grade open

house.

“We spread out surf photos all across a table from the fun times from

surf team this year,” she said. “There were lots of kids interested, and parents

— some of the parents were like ‘I want to join the surf team.’”

“I've never cared too much about someone's surf ability,” Gray said. “I'm

more concerned with how they represent the sport, the community, and

themselves. Their great attitudes are a direct reflection on the coaches and

parents. It's easy to see how passionate they are, and very fun watching it

shine while they compete on the team. At the end of the day, it's about

having fun and helping others along the way as a team. The kids are doing

a great job representing that.” PEN

We won’t charge you, but by the time you’re done reading this article

you’ll be on your way to becoming the best-dressed person

on your block, and maybe in all of the South Bay, who knows.

Last month New York-based Tziporah Salamon presented a two-hour

show and tell at the Palos Verdes Art Center about her newly-released

book, “The Art of Dressing,” subtitled “Ageless, Timeless, Original Style.”

The key word here, I think, is style, and although the book contains 150

color photographs “style” remains an intangible. Even so, with enough

learning and exposure we’ll know it when we see it.

“It’s the image that leaves an indelible mark on the viewer, forever,” Salamon

writes. “It requires discipline, study, and attention… Style does not

just happen; it needs to be cultivated, chiseled, refined.”

I dress, therefore I am

People Salamon encounters often ask what she does, and while at the

beginning she might have replied that she was a hostess, a cashier, a salesgirl,

and so forth, she soon discovered the proper response: “I dress.”

“When I am assembling an outfit, “she writes, “I think of the total look…

Dressing is an artistic endeavor with you as the painter, your body as the

canvas, the various components of your outfit as the paints, and your eyes

as the brush.” Or, as she tells me over the telephone from New York: “I

don’t have to invite you to my studio to show you my paintings. You get to

see my paintings every day on my body.”

Know your body and its proportions, height, width, etc., and thus which

colors and what shapes work best with it, she advised. Within your budget,

of course, invest in staples, but remember it’s quality over quantity. Choose

the classic over the trendy because

fashion is here and gone

Tziporah Salamon

and the

“The Art of Dressing”

at the PV Art Center

but style endures. Lastly, don’t

underestimate the importance of

a good seamstress and tailor.

“No matter what,” Salamon

writes, “always dress as well as

you can, and in a becoming and

thought-out outfit.”

Repairing a broken heart

How a person gets to where

they are from where they started

can often be circuitous or labyrinthine. Both words apply to Tziporah Salamon,

the child of Hungarian Jews who survived the Holocaust and relocated

to Israel in the early 1950s. Papa was a tailor and mama a dressmaker.

Despite empty pockets, despite dusty roads and few amenities, people

dressed well, even elegantly (in style, Salamon says, “Budapest was considered

a rival to Paris”). If there was poverty, there was also a solid sense

of community. Besides, much more than in most places, they were all in

this together.

Her father’s tailoring shop was Salamon’s “Magic kingdom,” until 1959,

when she was nine, and the family moved from Israel to Brooklyn. Culture

shock hardly describes it: Salamon’s first impression of New York was that

the sun never shone there. Figuratively, it wouldn’t shine until many years

later. At the age of 12, she changed her name to “Lynn” because no one

had ever heard of “Tziporah” ( a Biblical Hebrew name; “tzippor” means

bird) and naturally the “Tz” threw everyone off.

For all that, Salamon was a bright young lady, and she enrolled at the

University of Buffalo. However, she decided to spend her junior year overseas,

back in Israel. A decade had passed, but embedded in her mind was

a picture of Israel as (in my words) a cross between the Emerald City of

Oz and one of those magical paintings by Marc Chagall.

“I told my parents I was going back to study,” she says over the phone,

“but I told all my friends that I wasn’t going to come back, that I was hoping

to meet an Israeli and settle down and marry and raise my kids there.

“What happened was,” she continues, “everything I hated about America

in 1959 when we moved here was now in Israel. The first thing my relatives

wanted to do was show me the skyscrapers and the supermarkets.”

“We were no longer dancing in the streets,” she says. “We were now

dancing in discotheques.

“The first time my heart was broken [was when] we left Israel and came

to America. America was the enemy when we got here. And now [I’ve

gone] back to Israel to live happily ever after and America is now in Israel.

The wound of the nine-year-old girl opened up all over again. I was just

devastated. There was no home.”

Back in the U.S., Salamon graduated with a degree in English literature,

attended UC Santa Barbara, where she earned a Masters in Education, and

then headed up to Berkeley to pursue a Ph.D. in psychology, with the goal

of becoming a therapist. In the eleventh hour, however, she decided to

move back to New York, hoping for a career in fashion. A photo of Nancy

Cunard (think of the shipping line) convinced her to cut her hair, and she

immersed herself in the world of designer Coco Chanel, “Vogue” editorin-chief

Diana Vreeland, and others. She embarked upon a string of jobs

and at the same time asked herself what precisely she was hoping to become.

A stylist? No. A designer? No. A buyer? No. A fashion consultant?

Well, that was a possibility. While working as a hat- and coat-check girl at

a new restaurant she started wearing a different hat for each day (currently,

she has about 300).

Serious, and fun

Not a hard and fast rule, I imagine, but for the most part Salamon seems

to dress from the top down. She first selects a hat (“Hats are the exclamation

point. The perfect finishing touch to any outfit.”), and then, in roughly

this order, a blouse, pants, earrings, shoes, handbag, shawl, coat. She em-

phasizes good, and comfortable shoes; suggests mixing costly jewelry with

costume jewelry, and advises that one should “always wear earrings as they

frame the face.” An outfit can produce a different effect by merely changing

the buttons. Her choice of bright red lipstick is certainly a strong accent,

although I did notice that fingernail polish makes only an occasional appearance.

At the PV Art Center, Salamon presented a chronological walk-through

of how she’s dressed over the years, and how it’s changed as she’s gone

from her 30s to her 40s, her 50s and now 60s. “What I want to wear now,”

she tells me, “is very different than what I wanted to wear in my 30s. I

talk about the evolution of a woman aging as well, and its impact upon us

and our choices.”

She points out that the key chapter in “The Art of Dressing” is called

“The Keeper of the Cloth.” It explains, within a religious context to some

degree, why she does what she does: “I take the role of dressing, and my

being a dresser, very seriously… I really do see it as a calling.”

Number one, though, she dresses well to bring delight to herself. But

there’s more to it than that, of course:

“I think what I do is I give women permission to dress again, to play in

their closets,” Salamon says. “I give them permission, I free them, and I

entice them to do it. They look at me and they say, ‘Wait a minute, you’re

having such fun with clothes. I want it too; I want to have fun with clothes.’

If that’s what I’ve done, and in my way leave the world a more beautiful

place in the way we dress, then I’ve done my job.”

Couch.com)

Tantawan Thai’s servings and server lift spirits

by Richard Foss

Idon’t always comment about the restaurant service, even though that

has a lot to do with the quality of the dining experience. Once in awhile,

though, it makes or breaks a meal, and that just happened at Tantawan

Thai, a restaurant located in a shopping center near the corner of Silver

Spur.

I was meeting family members for dinner, and one had just had a bad

day at work. Wait, did I say bad? I mean stupendously awful, the kind of

day that can leave you sullen, irritable, and looking for someone to vent

at. Thai food hadn’t been her first choice for the evening, and as she waited

for a menu to be delivered she was an explosion looking to happen.

The person who delivered that menu was a sunny character named Carlos,

who handled a snappish customer with deft diplomacy and wit. When

we asked his opinion of one item that seemed fairly plain, he responded,

“That’s very healthy. You should get something else.” After a few such comments,

the person who was having a bad day was living in the moment

and enjoying the repartee. It was a case of the irresistible charm meeting

the immovable grouch, and it was the grouch that melted.

All this bonhomie would have led to disappointment if the food that Carlos

was recommending hadn’t been up to par, but we were in a good mood

as we awaited our appetizers while sipping a Chainier “1749” Sauvignon

Blanc. Though New Zealand has become famous for this varietal in the

last few years, the French entrants like this one from Bordeaux are worth

exploring. The climate in France is warmer, the soil limestone based rather

than volcanic, even the aging method different, and French Sauvignon

Blancs are more subtle without the pungent grassy overtones. The New

Zealanders are usually suggested with spicy Asian cuisines because the

tropical fruitiness stands up well to spice and vinegar, but we found this

enjoyable both as a sipping wine and with the food. They sell it for only

$20 per bottle, which is a very good price.

Our starters were eggrolls, dumplings called ka-nohm-jeeb, and an order

of crabcakes that were served with a side salad. The dumplings were a

Thai version of Chinese shu mai, ground chicken and shrimp with shiitake

mushroom and water chestnuts steamed inside a thin crepe-like noodle.

Though Thailand doesn’t share a land border with China there has been

trade for centuries, and the culinary influence was clear here, with none

of the heat and ginger that characterizes most Thai food. A thick soy-based

spice sauce was served with it and that added flavor without ratcheting

the heat very high, but these were just fine without it.

I did want a little more zip with the eggrolls, which were a bit on the

bland side and served with a sweet chili sauce. When asked Carlos provided

a trio of sauces with different balances of vinegar and chili. One of

these had chopped red and green peppers in a tart vinegar and was so assertive

that I momentarily lost my ability to speak when I got too much of

it. I kept applying it because it was delicious, but did so more moderately.

The crabcakes were a winner, too, the two large discs of seafood mildly

seasoned and served with some noodles stir-fried with onions and a dipping

sauce of mild red curry. The exterior had the uniform crispness that

suggested it had been egg-dipped before deep frying, which isn’t how I

usually like crabcakes, but it worked and that’s what matters. The red

curry dip was fragrant rather than hot according to the spice wimp at the

table, but we had asked for things to be mild and now know we can give

them a bit more latitude with the seasoning.

We continued with a “tiger salad” which contained no actual large felines,

but was composed of a mix of grilled beef, scallion, onion, lemongrass,

and mint leaves over a bed of green salad. Salads like this aren’t

really Thai because lettuce as we know it doesn’t grow there, but this 1960s

invention by a Thai chef in Los Angeles has gone global. As well it should,

62 PeninsulaJune 2017


ecause the combination of spice

and garlic in the meat with a vinegary,

slightly peppery dressing is a

winner.

Our final items were barbecue

garlic pork over vegetables, shrimp

pad Thai, and chicken with spicy

chili and basil. If I had it to do all

over again I might have ordered

something other than the garlic

pork because it was similar to the

garlic beef that had been on the

salad, and I would have liked to try

a wider range of flavors from this

kitchen. The different setting with

cooked vegetables and a side sauce

lent sufficient variety that we

weren’t bored, but I’d still suggest

getting one or the other.

The shrimp pad Thai was standard

but well crafted, the shrimp

briefly grilled rather than steamed

and the vegetables in good balance

with the noodles, peanuts, and

sauce. It wasn’t highly spiced and

as far as I can tell shouldn’t be –

it’s a gentle savory item that is a

delight when done traditionally.

The chicken with chili and basil

was more assertive even though

we had ordered it medium in deference

to the two-heat-averse people

at the table. When made mild

it accents the pungency of Thai

Tantawan Thai manager Miu Sauls

basil, which has a concentrated

herbal flavor that is very different

from the Italian variant. The basil

was accented by chili in the mild

version, but if we had asked them

to kick the seasoning up a few

notches it would have been the

other way around. Either way, it’s

an enjoyable dish and one I would

recommend here.

We were offered the choice of

regular jasmine rice, coconut rice,

or brown rice with each entrée,

and we got one of each. My suggestion

is to do the same, because

the different flavors in each add

shadings to the curries and sauces.

Dinner for four with a bottle of

wine and a beer ran $133 and we

took home enough for a nice lunch

the next day. It was a fair price for

a fine meal in pleasant surroundings,

a showcase for a meal with

character and a server who is one.

HOME SWEET TUSCANY

After starting a family in Japan, the Chapmans returned to Palos Verdes and rebuilt a masterpiece

Larry and Jodie Chapman

never expected that they

would be building a life together

after a blind date set up by

a mutual church friend over 30

years ago.

Larry was late to the performance

of “Pirates of Penzance,”

which was to be their meeting

place for the evening. It was a

show staged at the St. Peter’s Episcopal

Church in San Pedro, where

Jodie volunteered as a youth

leader.

“It was the worst production of

just off of the Palos Verdes Golf Course in the Valmonte neighborhood.

‘Pirates of Penzance,’ ever,” Larry

said.

Jodie was not particularly impressed

with his tardiness. Yet the

two somehow managed to enjoy

the evening together. Following

their courtship, they married on

August 27, 1983, and relocated

soon after to Tokyo to take advantage

of a professional opportunity.

Larry, an electrical engineer, had

joined Hughes Electronics in 1980.

His work in Japan was the result of

a joint venture between Hughes

Electronics and two other companies.

The companies were researching

the technology

surrounding direct broadcast satellites at the

time, which eventually became DirecTV. Larry

was one of DirecTV’s original Chief Operating

Officers, in charge of the company’s Latin

America division.

The Chapmans’ first child, Alexis, was born

in Japan and spent her first four years there. She

was an anomaly in Eastern Asia.

People couldn’t get over her looks,” Jodie remembered.

“They would bring over gifts just to

be afforded the opportunity to see her up close

and were fascinated by her non-Asian appearance.

It was quite an experience for her to undergo

all the extraordinary attention and

popularity bestowed upon her at such an early

age.”

The family thoroughly enjoyed living in

Tokyo and brought Japanese style, along with a

sense of adventure, to the homestead they’d

eventually establish in Palos Verdes. The family's

sojourn to Japan ended in 1989 and they

moved back to the States and settled in San

Pedro in time for the arrival of their second

child, Wesley that same year. Jodie, a Palos

Verdes High School alumna, had never anticipated

moving back to her hometown to raise a

family as a full time mother.

But the family became smitten with a house

in the Valmonte neighborhood of Palos Verdes

Estates. They purchased it in 1996.

“We saw the potential here to really make it

our own,” Jodie said. “I had a book of ideas and

I would go through it excitedly searching for

the just the right place to [apply] our future

home ideas.”

And what a playground this home proved to

be for architectural detail, ingenuity and luxury.

Originally built in 1938 and designed and engineered

by H. H. Lochridge — the same architect

who designed the City Hall building in

The water slide leads to a sparkling pool and spa area

with artificial grass and a courtyard lined with trellises

filled with spring’s abundant flowers.

Long Beach — this Tuscan-style refuge

served as the foundation for the family’s

future ideal home. In 1997, they hired the

prominent Torrance-based architect, Edward

Carson Beall, to engage in an ambitious

remodel.

“It was a two year endeavor,” Larry said.

“We covered lots of ground.”

He recalled how the couple saw an advertisement

for vintage flooring that took

them out to Vista, California, one of many

uniquely sourced materials for the home’s

reimagining.

“The wood plank reclaimed flooring is

eucalyptus sourced from a Tasmanian

sheep shearing factory,” Larry said. “We

had it hand-scraped, and even though it

was glued down flooring, it still retains the

original nail holes from its past life.”

The family went to great lengths to stay

true to the home’s character. The stairwell

by the entrance is the original from the

1930s. It’s made of magnesite, a type of oldworld

style poured cement comprised of a

mixture of calcined magnesite, magnesium

chloride and various fillers including wood

flour or sawdust.

“There were five layers of paint masking

the magnesite,” Larry said, noting it was

all removed to expose the stairwell’s natural

egg-shell color composition. Larry recalled

that when they went to build the

back staircase during the remodel, they

could only find one purveyor of this material,

Rizo’s, in Los Angeles.

The house sits high above the street,

meeting its towering eucalyptus trees eyeto-eye.

The steps leading up to the front

door are winding and alluring, with the floral

and herbaceous scents of nature wafting

Timeless

Centuries ago when the world’s finest clockmakers were

hard at work, their aim was to create a mechanical marvel

that operates continuously and last forever. Imagine

a hand made complex mechanism of inter-working parts designed

to keep time accurately. Your clock is a work of art and

your job is to keep this timeless treasure healthy for the next

generation.

Your clock reminds you of its presence every time you wind

it. If the accuracy of the clock is not what it used to be, or the

chimes are not as strong or rhythmic, or maybe it just stops;

that means your clock is talking to you and telling you that its

endless life is in jeopardy.

It is imperative to maintain and service your clock regularly.

Oil gets old and dry forcing the train of gears to work twice as

hard to accomplish their goal. This results in damage that drastically

shortens the life of a fine timepiece.

Michel Medawar has been extending the lives of timepieces

for over Sixty years as his father did Sixty years before. He is

the inventor of the first talking clock in the world. He is a graduate

from Patek Philippe in Geneva, Switzerland, The Theod

Wagner Clock Co. in Wiesbaden, Germany, and the Howard

Miller Clock Co. in Zeeland, Michigan. Call him so that he may

come to your home and offer you a free estimate for servicing

your clock. Or bring your wall or mantel clock to our store to

as one ascends. The front door, from Arte de Mexico, is heavily built with

hand-carved paneling originally towering 12 feet tall. The door had to be

taken down a few feet to fit the frame, so the extra panels were crafted

and embedded into a wood lattice succulent planter outside creatively concealing

waste bins.

When the front door opens you are greeted by the Chapmans and their

friendly small schnauzers, Sebastian and Sola. Your second vision is of the

inviting kitchen, designed partly by Cooper Pacific Kitchens in Los Angeles.

The kitchen cleverly features Old World accessories. The Sub-Zero refrigerator

boasts an Arte de Mexico set of ornate handles. A “secret” staircase

takes you underground to a well-equipped butler’s pantry, replete with a

second refrigerator and other useful appointments, including ample storage

cabinetry and workspace countertops. The breakfast area sits by a large

bay window overlooking lush greenery outside. A front deck, visible just

outside the window, offers an expansive view that includes the Palos

Verdes Golf Course, venerable trees and bounding greenery and flowers.

The home has three distinctive fireplaces. The living room, off the kitchen,

has an old world finish, hand-done by well-known South Bay artisan Barbara

Van Groningen in a textured deep merlot hue. Van Groningen’s

artistry is ubiquitous throughout the home, including fleur de lys painted

into the beams, whimsical fairies painted on the floors in the children’s

bathroom and copper etchings of Tuscan villages she freehanded in the

laundryroom. Some Asian influence can also be discerned in the largely

The daughter’s whimsical bathroom has a decorative handpainted fairy on

home and its grounds, are both

practical and decorative.

After the couple finished their

home’s two year remodel, Jodie

said they were inspired to find

other projects they could share.

“I was trying to find out what else

we could do together next,” Jodie

said. “Some couples garden together,

bike together or even work

together.”

Jodie’s father, who was a navigator

in the military, instilled in her a

love of flying at an early age. So

Jodie obtained her pilot’s license in

2001 and two years later she convinced

Larry to do the same. They

purchased a Cirrus plane that has

two batteries, two alternators, two

GPS’s, four seats, and its own parachute.

“I feel very safe in this plane,”

Jodie said.

The plane is housed at the Torrance

Airport but will soon be flying

decided to make a move to Placerville

to be closer to their new

granddaughter, Juniper, who just

turned one. The Chapmans are
