Rufus Wainwright is possessed by Judy Garland

It's no surprise that Rufus Wainwright should find himself years later to be a consummate showman. The son of folkies Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, Wainwright grew up in a house of music, joining his mother's band at the age of 13. Even his sister, Martha, has a respectable

Halloween cocktails in Tacoma

While mini-ghouls and goblins fill the streets to panhandle door to door for sugary sweets (affectionately referred to as trick or treating), those without children will come out to play. What better reason to play a little dress up and imbibe in treats of the adult variety with tasty specialty

When you think of a choir, you might not think of a positive force in the world. You might not think of a team of people who have overcome their own obstacles to help others. You might not think of a life-changing outreach program for veterans or others who need

Urban Spelunker: Three Bridges District

The Three Bridges District is aptly named thanks to several small bridges that link North Tacoma streets over the Puget Gulch Creek surrounding North 21st and Oakes streets. This quaint district could almost be considered an expansion of the Proctor District due to its close proximity, but it maintains a

Wednesday, Nov. 6: Leo Kottke

The term "folk" seems inadequate to guitar wizard Leo Kottke, but how else to describe his roots-based extreme virtuosity? Sure, Chet Atkins was awesome; John Fahey was a virtuoso, Les Paul a god. But Kottke had something else going for him, mainly a spry sense of humor and ho-hum vocals

JBLM soldiers return to cheers, tears and first birthdays

A smiling Dustin Hancock proudly held his 6-month-old son in his arms for the first time. And Liz, Hancock's wife, beamed. "It's been a long time coming," Liz said, holding back her tears. "Having a baby and him not being here to hold him was hard." Hancock, along with 249 other soldiers, received

Sunday, Nov. 3: Blowfly

Dirty rhymes, sexy times, shit-talkin', costume-wearing, debauchery and brilliant parodies have led many to cite Blowfly as the father of rap. Since the early '70s Blowfly has made more than 40 albums, some clean, under his birth name Clarence Reid, and most dirty, with titles like "Funk You" and "'Electronic

Wednesday, Nov. 6: "Have A Terrific Great Nice OK Day" reception

So, how many Americans do you think hate their jobs? If Office Space is any indication, the rough estimate would probably be around 95 percent, eh? Imagine 95 percent of humanity burying their dreams, staring at a corporate fax machine all day and secretly wanting to die. Cheery, isn't it?

After Don Draper, Anthony Bourdain is the coolest cat on cable: Erudite, well-spoken, punk rock literate and fearless - if the locals eat it, he'll have two and a beer.

Monday, Nov. 4: Holiday Open House

Thanks to the ingenious marketing minds behind fine retail establishments everywhere, the holiday season has now commenced. But while many lament the loss of, say, fall, others look at the bright side: a longer holiday season means more time to chug eggnog and nosh on matzo balls, and even more
