2DRNK 4U There has been much talk in the local media about Senate Bill 6402, which was sponsored by Lakewood’s Sen. Mike Carrell. The bill proposes requiring drivers who have been convicted of DUI to purchase and display a special bright yellow license plate on their vehicles. The idea is to

Eastside represent

Now that this paper has edged into the political realm, I’d like to offer my 25 cents on an issue which irks me to no avail. If you’ve read this column for any amount of time, you know that I’m always out and about in different regions of the city, flirting

Half the life, triple the fun

It seems only fitting that Lakewood Playhouse is staging How the Other Half Lives around Valentine’s Day — and I’m sure the theater planned it at a time that I’m marking my 10th year with my wife. All things revolve around me don’t they? Anyway, the theater is putting on the

Helping you rock out

It all started innocently enough with a show at Club Adrian in Tacoma. It was a hardcore metal show featuring On The Last Day (OTLD) and Falls From Grace. Sylver McMahon was just 15 years old when she got the bug.  By the summer of 2006, she was doing it

Know new punk

As I’ve proven time and time again here at the Weekly Volcano, I’m not above a cheap but entertaining angle. I have no qualms about reporting on something of debatable merit if I think it’ll make for humorous copy. It’s one of my patented moves, and probably one of the

No "Maybe" about it

Ryan Reynolds has always shown promise. The young actor proved he had a comedic spark in the mediocre television series Two Guys and a Girl, as well as forgettable movies like Van Wilder, Waiting ... and Just Friends.
