Danii Blackwell looks good

Danii Blackwell shows off her style at the Nordstrom fashion show at the Museum of Glass, though she is, in point of fact, not wearing anything from Nordstrom. Her wool knickers, old-school type that I can remember wearing in the mid-eighties, though never with that much confident élan, came from Chinatown. The

Rock me, ‘Amadeus’

A lesser person would think that a play named “Amadeus” would be about that composer dude who wrote “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” before he had his first blemish and hammered out the score of some of the world’s best musical works before he had the obligation to shave his face.

Give the Broadway Center your mind

The high-pitched squeal of feedback is not a sound you want to hear on stage, but behind the scenes the people at Broadway Center for the Performing Arts are collecting feedback of a different kind. The Broadway Center board has some younger hipper members now who would like to bring

Afternoon delight

This week I was able to sneak something in that I really, really enjoy — I like to call it Afternoon Delight. I’m sorry to let you down by saying that it doesn’t include early evening sex, but sometimes it’s just as much fun. I love to take a sleepy Saturday and

Home of the brave

Now that the nightlife circuit in Tacoma is really starting to fill in as more and more bars and lounges take their seat here, a new lease on life is coming to establishments that have deserved our attention all along. Meconi’s Pub and Eatery, and Vin Grotto Café and Wine Bar

Magick, eggs and Ostara

Crescent Moon Gifts thrums with the energy of shoppers milling about, asking questions of “Shoppe Keeper” Angela Wehnert during a time that’s traditionally not busy.  Later, Wehnert explains that the energy in the space had been oppressive to her that morning, “heavy.” So she smudged the store to clear the

Expect the expected

“So the cashier at Burger King is about to hand you your food, and you’re expecting her to tell you, ‘Have a nice day,’ and so you’re already thinking, ‘You, too,’ but instead she says, ‘Enjoy Your Meal.’ And you say, ‘You, too.’” Brian Regan has built himself into one

Focus on Jim

Jim Campbell’s show at the Museum of Glass has me stumped. I don’t possess the kind of scientific brain it must take to fully understand or appreciate his message or methods. But I do find the work fascinating. Campbell is an engineer, inventor and video artist. He worked on Francis Ford

Quality shows this week

Thursday COUNTRY kari ehli “American Idol” runners-up piss me off.  They are so pompous and self-absorbed. I can’t stand the fact that the majority of them haven’t paid any dues and suddenly they are stars.  However, if I had to pick the next “American Idol” it would probably be Lakewood’s own Kari
