Don't Mess With Tacoma

Orgy. It’s not a term I use lightly. While it’s a commanding word — evoking descriptive mental images and the smell of frenzied sweat — the word is appropriate only in certain situations. Try describing midnight mass or a baptism with the word and you’ll see what I mean. The South

The Mae Shi

There is many a negative thing to say about the 2004 born Los Angeles band The Mae Shi. Their last three records, while mind bogglingly energetic, self-indulged with amateurish, for-the-hell-of-it time changes and squawking vocals. Essentially conglomerating the more obvious components of noise rock into punk-sized bites, their previous releases

Just an average Bank Job

A serviceable B-grade British heist movie, The Bank Job is no better than its generic title. It front-loads the naughty sex and back-loads the plot twists (the titular crime takes place in the middle), but apart from the prominence of Princess Margaret in the goings-on, it’s a pretty routine job,

Scrubbing and smoothing

Scrubbers and things The cold, dry winter months have turned my skin into a mess resembling the Sahara desert and Amazon rainforest simultaneously — ultra dry and overly moisturized. Part of the problem is dry skin. Looking to alleviate the situation, I went hunting for a body scrubber. Spa Dreams, a

Chasing the look

Spring has sprung and so has the couture of this season’s fashion trends. Variety is the universal flavor of the season. Dresses that feature splashes of lace or long, flowing fabrics are making their annual debut. Expect to see slight variations on the classic spring and summer dress as the

Chili cook-off, The Bite

St. Patrick’s Day Red And Green Chili Cook-Off Not sure if this is what Waterford-born Franciscan scholar Luke Wadding had in mind when he instigated St. Patrick’s Day in the early part of the 17th century, but, hell, chili sounds great every day. This annual chili cook-off is a big deal

Don't take this trip

“College Road Trip” is the sort of movie that gets described as “fun for the whole family,” but it really isn’t.  It will be no fun at all for members of the family over 10.  Or sophisticated ones over 8.  The characters scream a lot when they’re unhappy and dance
