Back to Beale Street Blues 2014 championships

Beale Street in Memphis, Tenn. is rich with history. From the early 1900s through the '40s, it was swinging - every club and restaurant was filled with solemn saxophone, upbeat piano, gritty, soulful voices and even the occasional jug band. Jazz artists were fusing with blues legends like B.B. King, Muddy Waters and Louis Armstrong to help

Tunes and new shoes

The significant one is into Nike shoes. Which is interesting to me, a person who needs the stability received from what I fondly refer to as “Franken-boots” — New Balance running sneaks I get at South Sound Running on Pacific Avenue. The two of us, on a rare weekend in Seattle,

My Las Vegas

There’s something about the idea of cooking that just brings warm, happy feelings deep into my soul. Sure, the act of eating makes me happy, but when I think of the fun part of the process of cooking — the special gadgets, the flavorful combinations, the time-proven methods and bizarre rituals

The Raven and the Writing Desk confound expectations

In Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter poses this riddle: "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Alice asks for the answer, at which point the Hatter admits that he has no clue what the answer is. Yes, readers said to Carroll, ad nauseam, but what really is the

What comes around ...

It’s not easy to engage a live audience in an age where people channel surf while text messaging, talking on the phone, eating dinner, checking e-mail and updating their MySpace pages. Spending an hour or two watching a singer/songwriter is great if you are already a big fan or if

"Beowulf" is bloody funny

In the name of the mighty Odin, what this movie needs is an audience that knows how to laugh. Laugh, I tell you, laugh! Has the spirit of irony been lost in the land? By all the gods, if it were not for this blasted infirmity that the Fates have

Wonderful for the young only

Mr. Magorium is 243 years old, he informs us. He has possibly survived so long by being incapable of boredom. Life for him is a daily adventure, which he shares with the children who pack into his magical toy store. And let’s talk about the toy store first. If the

Award-winning Bella hits the screen

“Bella” tells the story of two people who fall in love because of an unborn child. Winner of the Audience Award at Toronto 2006, it is a heart-tugger with the confidence not to tug too hard. It stars an actor named Eduardo Verastegui, whom I would describe as the next
