Terrifying Tacoma

Want to see something really scary? For those of you bored to tears by sensationalized gore, there is still plenty to be afraid of in the City of Destiny. Jigsaw’s maniacal machinations shouldn’t be nearly as terrifying as Sound Transit’s plan to send dozens of trains per day across Pacific

Sometimes ear hair is a good thing. When that ear hair is inner ear hair, or, more technically, inner ear hair cells, electrical impulses tell your brain you’re hearing something good. You might be hearing good things like children’s laughter, early spring birdsong, or possibly the tranquil sounds of 550 drum kits

"Darjeeling" has charm

Three brothers in crisis meet in India, and in desperation, in “The Darjeeling Limited,” a movie that meanders so persuasively it gets us meandering right along. It’s the new film by Wes Anderson who after “Rushmore” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” made “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.” Of that peculiar

Iris Dement

If you’ve never heard of the neo-traditional country artist Iris Dement, you’re not alone. She has cut only four albums in the past 15 years, has received sparse airplay and has remained a country cult-favorite.

Knit or go home

A woman was recently accosted outside a small restaurant because of her messenger bag. The skull and knitting-needle crossbones on it declared,  “Knit or Go Home,” and in her hipster-oversized sunglasses and Northwest comfy shoes she looked to be the epitome of the rising movement of young craftspeople/ fiber artistes threatening

Melt Banana

There are those who say that noise rock bands are just that — noise. There are those who hate the idea of noise rock and hate any band that attempts it — including Tokyo, Japan’s Melt Banana, set to play Hell’s Kitchen tonight. While everyone is entitled to an opinion, and

I dicked Phil O'Sullivan

Technically, this week’s article was supposed to be about These Arms are Snakes and their show at Hell’s Kitchen on Saturday, Oct. 20. I had planned to do an interview with someone from the band and probably come up with a few witty sentences about the world of post-hardcore. But I

Gone Baby Gone, Rendition and others

Gone Baby Gone Boston seems like the most forbidding city in crime movies. There are lots of movies about criminals in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and points between, but somehow in Boston the wounds cut deeper, the characters are angrier, their resentments bleed, their grudges never die, and they all

Intervision vision

Like many people here at the Weekly Volcano, Bobble Tiki gets a lot of mail. Sometimes Bobble Tiki gets good mail, and sometimes it’s not so good.

Back for more blood

A gaunt stranger haunts the streets of Barlow, Alaska, warning: "That cold ain’t the weather. That’s Death approaching." Since Barlow is said to be the northernmost town in America, 300 miles of roadless wilderness from its closest neighbor, and since 30 days of continuous sunless night are commencing, I expected
