Fistful of God’s Gun

There’s something iconic and romantic about cowboys and old western films. Maybe, in this age awash with vague morals and seeming injustice around every turn, the idea of a life filled with honor, baking sun and a trusty horse just feels comforting. Or maybe people just really like cowboy hats

Worn and torn

There’s a lot to like in the latest art exhibit at South Puget Sound Community College. Michael Lindenmeyer’s constructions and Dan Meuse’s photographs complement each other well. Lindenmeyer’s constructions are colorful, inventive and humorous; Meuse’s photographs are somber and classical. What they have in common is age — the look

Holy Parking Lot productions!

The works of William Shakespeare are often not particularly accessible to younger audiences because of the arcane language and the complicated plotlines and story twists. There have been countless efforts to bring the shows to new audiences, and they all have had varying degrees of success. One troupe in the successful

50 candles on the pizza pie

The majority of restaurants fail in this country, therefore, it should come as no surprise that few eateries in the South Sound celebrate 25 year anniversaries, let alone 50 or greater. Locally, the Hob Nob, the Harvester and The Spar in Old Town Tacoma represent places nearing their 80 year

Stately indie pop

Bobble Tiki is back. After a restful vacation spent rediscovering his umbrella drink and suntan lotion heritage in Hawaii, Bobble Tiki resumes his post this week here in the dreary Northwest, rearing and ready to once again put his Tiki nose to the grindstone. It’s funny how even a short

Scooting to Lava 3

Is it possible to look cool while riding a scooter?  As gas prices continue to wreak havoc on budgets everywhere — even at an ultra-cheap $2-something a gallon — and scooters and scooter riders multiply like fruit flies on the road, it would seem that question is being answered for me. If

Ask Amy

Paradise bossed   Before my husband married me, he was engaged to “Vera.” Vera was financially and emotionally dependent on him after leaving friends, family, and her business to be with him. They broke up, and she eventually moved out. My husband didn’t tell Vera we were engaged until she surprised

A good spore

I often comment about weather in my column because it can have such a great impact in what we eat and how we cook. For instance, this crazy warm and wet spell we’ve been having is prime mushroom growing weather. And oh how I like mushrooms.  However, my patience has been
