Aficionados on Aficionados

They’re manly men.  They have names like Tom, Chuck, and Richard. They hold down manly jobs titles like mechanic, firefighter and retired IRS. And in their spare time, they like to hold large, smelly, cylindrical things between their lips and suck. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a lawyer or a mechanic; you’ll

Going big

The biggest highlight from last week can be summed up with one four-letter word. And, surprisingly, it’s not even a dirty word. It’s actually quite clean and pristine, that is, unless it’s yellow. Snow, snow, SNOW! All week long I’d been getting the Crystal Mountain snow reports via e-mail, which had me dreaming

Hiding out in Tacoma

Two hundred thousand people. Give or take a few, that’s how many T-town hustlers there are. Lately, I feel like I know all of them — or at least the ones who party on a regular or even semi-regular basis. Just like Tupac’s song said, “No matter where I go, I see the

Hooked on speed

According to a traditional children's song, little boys are made of "snips and snails and puppy dogs' tails." Whoever wrote that crap obviously never went to a drag race. If he had, he'd know that boys, from little to big, are made of nitromethane fuel, turbochargers, burnt-out tires with smelly

It’s frock and tux season

So you thought, after your senior prom, that you’d never have a chance to don your fanciest clothes again.  Well, I’m happy to say you thought wrong. Go now and buy yourself a beautiful dress or a French-cuff shirt (go ahead and rent a tux, if you must) so that you

Music picks of the week

Thursday POP the lund bros. It’s one thing to have one musically inclined child, but two? Good genes I suppose.  In the tradition of Oasis and the Kinks, the Lund Bros. are considered the kings of pop in their hometown of Tacoma.  With catchy guitar hooks, poppy rhythms, and in sync harmonies,

Old School Drop Out

They describe their music as “modern hard-rock melodies with a few old school headbangers sprinkled in.” Old School Drop Out is not a band that caters to people who would be just as happy with a jukebox. They don't take quarters for song requests. They stake their territory as a

Prom shoes

Shopping-gasm

Shopping-gasm There is nothing on the planet that inspires warm, fuzzy, happy, elated feelings quite like a perceived good bargain. Throw in a really good bargain and you can amp that emotion up about 17,000 notches. So there I was at Dame Lola picking up my long-forgotten AG cords, busted apart by my
