Cute Band Alert

OK, OK, OK.. Bobble Tiki admits it. He’s a slacker. He’s a mess. Sometimes, he’s a wee-bit unreliable. As I’m sure you’re well aware, New Year’s Eve was earlier this week. For most of you, that probably means you had a little champagne at midnight, and maybe even woke

Ask Amy

Braking wind The guy I've been dating for three months has only had one relationship, lasting a year. On the continuum of Friends With Benefits and serious dating, I told him I was generally more toward the serious side, and he said he's in the middle. He does sweet things

Women have been the fashion inspiration behind their men forever. Helping them branch out into new realms of style by picking out their shirts, upgrading their jeans, and staying knowledgeable on the latest trends.

Playlists Twyla Tharp’s choreographic power will gleam like the chrome of a streamline fin on a convertible in the South Sound when the national tour of Movin’ Out moves in on the Washington Center and Pantages Theater. Tharp’s modern dance signature (odd body tilts, and push-back reverses) will mix with “It’s

Kimberly Adams

Seeing as how Kimberly Adams is involved with public relations, she and I have had many e-mail conversations about Washington State History Museum events that always seemed to lead to other discussions. Of course, any discussion had with me is never deep or philosophical and often eventually leads to disturbing

Riddle: What’s harder to get rid of as you get older, no one wants it and it goes on easier than it comes off? Answer: Extra Body Weight. As a teenager, I had one of the worst diets imaginable: Score bars, Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew, McDonald’s double cheeseburgers (extra cheese), french

Hug an orange cone

It seems as though so many of you Tacomans crave redevelopment. You want, and you do deserve, a better quality of life, stronger amenities, walkability, bikeablity and, most important of all, public safety. But if it’s redevelopment we want, you must understand that often what comes with redevelopment is construction. Ladies and

Expired!

Although we reported this on our blog Spew Dec. 30, these clowns still piss us off. May the gods of parks and recreation send a merciless pox upon their genitals. As you remember, some asshat(s) decided it would be cool to do some snow donuts in sports fields at Stewart

Porn vs. Internet

The Internet is the most innovative technology to ever affect worldwide communication. Where Andrew Jackson had an artist rendering to inform the people of his appearance, Barack Obama has a MySpace page. And where once we had to imagine absurd sexual acts in our minds, we can now just get
