Dark cloud hangs over Smart People

Ask most reasonably bright, movie-review-reading people what qualities they value most in a mate or a motion picture, and the winning combo will likely be “smart and funny.” “Beautiful” is right up there, too, though not everybody wants to volunteer as much in the first round of questioning.

Beer and my best friend

Juno opening night

The latest brave souls to open a club in downtown Tacoma have one thing that many of their now-deceased forerunners didn’t — a good plan and something for everyone. Named for the Roman hybrid goddess, Juno has plenty of variety worked into its weekly offerings — a mechanical bull, a

Showing on local screens

21: A formula movie “inspired by” a true story about the M.I.T. students who developed a card-counting system that enabled them to win millions at the blackjack tables in Las Vegas.  The excitement is as watered-down as the drinks.  It’s not unwatchable, but you could watch it with your eyeballs

Quieter Old Haunts

One of the biggest perks of my gig at the Weekly Volcano is free new music. Cooler than the countless times Pappi Swarner has paid for me to get drunk, or the one female stalker I’ve earned in my five years at the paper, or even the time someone recognized
