Carmen cleans up her act

Last week was filled with all kinds of dreamy thoughts about something you and I probably both love equally. Summer, summer, summertime! Even though I’m a devoted Washingtonian, and I really don’t mind the rain at all, there’s nothing quite like the first days of sunshine on those beautiful blue-sky breakthroughs. I love

Neighborhood nice

This week I’ll put you in my pocket and take you to a Proctor establishment with a name as sweet as it’s presence and ownership: Rosewood Cafe. This is a laid back neighborhood café that’s full for lunch and dinner. All of the faces in it are relaxed and smiling. Mine was,

Saturday, Sept. 14: Strangely Alright Video Shoot

We've all gotten used to the fact that MTV no longer delights us with original, catchy music videos. Gone are the days of flipping on the tube and being entertained with both visual and auditory sensation that actually has class and creativity. But, musicians are evolving creatures, and lucky for us,

Saturday, Sept. 7: Turn Me On Dead Man

On tour to promote their second album on Jell Biafra's Alternative Tentacles, Turn Me On Dead Man brings their heavy psychedelia to Olympia. Do I hear a little Pink Floyd meets The Smiths? A landscape of groovy reverb, grounded with blazing licks and tricked out with heavy, loud-ass space jams,

Wednesday, Sept. 11: Jazz Open Mic Night

Saxophonist Kareem Kandi's sound is virtually unrelated to the roomy traditions of soul saxes, honking saxes or deep-chested boudoir ballad saxes. It derives from the classic, free, often enthusiastic tradition of Joshua Redman as filtered through Dexter Gordon and Sonny Stitt, all of whose shadows can be traced-Redman in Kandi's

Bags of Raw-r (food that is)

I feed my dogs decent food: Nutro Natural Choice Lite with glucosamine and chondroitin.  I always thought, they have the glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health, they have the protein and other good stuff to keep them well-ish, and they have the kibble-only aspect for clean white teeth and no

Long flight

The missus and I are big fans of “West Side Story” even though it is sort of quaint and predictable no matter how a director stages it. Theaters have to assume that everyone in the audience has seen the show and know what they like since, well, everyone in the

\"Whorehouse\" and \"Take Me Out\"

“Whorehouse” Those whores are at it again — getting all uppity about being a victimless crime and what not. Such is the case at Tacoma Little Theatre as it finishes its season with “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” a look at life and politics surrounding the Chicken Ranch. [Tacoma Little Theatre, June

Take it or leave it

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, stop by the University of Washington-Tacoma art gallery to see the installation by Brooklyn, N.Y., artist Betsy Alwin. I’ll make a wild guess that you’ll find it fascinating — for upwards of two minutes. After that, you may catch yourself yawning. I drove
