TROUBLE WITH DEROSA: Lisa Tupper

For those of you who have been living under the rocks located outside of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s front landscaping, there is such a thing as locally grown organic produce. And for those of you who have not clued in to the uber-hip culture that surrounds everything locally grown and organic

Rapping the open range

I’ve got some questions written out. The first one is this: “Where are you now?  What are you doing right now?” I hate phone interviews. (“Phonies,” in the parlance.) They’re so awkward and, well, phony. No nuance. No mood. No raised eyebrows, smiles or furrowed foreheads. No waitress to tease. No

South Sound festivals

Ah, summer in the South Sound.  A time for baseball, camping, riding bikes, climbing trees, cooking out.  Time for walking beaches and hiking mountains.  A time to eat bear stew in McCleary, race boats in Olympia and geek out to world music in Tacoma’s Wright Park.  That’s right, it’s festival

Tuesday, Feb. 14: Sweet & Spicy: A Valentine's Day Burlesque

We've sung the praises of Tacoma's Gritty City Sirens burlesque troupe, and also the praises of Olympia's much-heralded Tush! burlesque troupe. We've done a lot of singing, when it comes to local burlesque anyway. Rarely, if ever, however, have we gotten the chance to sing the praises of Tush! and

Crime Column: Eric David Kollar shoots Rainier home to score revenge

In (almost) every issue of this fine rag my hack team of wannabe journalists and I tackle some of the most laughable criminal acts that have recently happened in our area. Then - if we're doing our job - we write about those crimes in a way that makes you

Thursday, Feb. 16: Best of Olympia 2012 Party

Everyone likes a good party. Or almost everyone does. We've got this friend, Barry, who doesn't like parties AT ALL. He's adamant about it. But he's also in the minority. That's why we feel more than comfortable saying next Thursday's Best of Olympia 2012 Party at the 4th Avenue Tavern

Tacoma's The Variety Hour celebrates release of new album

Momentum is a cherished quality in the world of music. It's what led hype-monster and Internet meme Lana Del Ray to a notably uncomfortable, Brian Williams-baiting performance on Saturday Night Live with only three songs to her lazily made-up name. It's what caused Radiohead to slam on the brakes and

CHERRY POPPIN' DADDIES >>> Friday, Feb. 10 It's best not to think too much about the possible connotations behind the Cherry Poppin' Daddies' name. We tried, on accident, and it kind of made us squeamish. Instead, we'd focus on the rambunctious mix of pomp and nostalgia that powers the Cherry Poppin' Daddies'

Ask Amy

Bed Lieutenant I'm 34; my husband of a year is 28. We didn't live together or have sex before marrying because I have a child and didn't feel this was appropriate behavior to model. We did discuss sex to figure out whether we'd be sexually compatible. He was fairly inexperienced, but

South Sound youth theater

I have written more than a few lines during the passing years about the rise of children's theater and youth programs offered at the Sound Sound's community theaters. How these programs fill the gaps in local school programs decimated by budget cuts. How youth theater pushes the arts forward while

In honor of the close of the NFL season, here's one more Cup Check entirely dedicated to the pigskin ... As I've noted before, the absolute truth is rarely black and white. The world is full of subtleties and shades of gray, and nothing is as simple or straightforward as it

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Abom the Kid - Rookie of the Year

There were a lot of great things that happened for 253 hip-hop last year. We had the emergence of Leezy Soprano, the skills of Havi Blaze, the newness of Gonzo Family and Blue Nose Music and so much more. One of the breakout artists of 2011 was Abom the Kid. Abom

There's a really big show at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts, and it's not on the stage. It's called Gold we have Spun from Straw! and it stretches throughout the Washington Center lobby, mezzanine and the upper balcony. The place is full of art. Really big art. Especially big

Current trends in South Sound dining and drinking

The health of the economy and the wealth of the people can dictate how America eats. Less money in the wallet means less money for going out. As consumers have less cash to spend, what that reduced income is being spent on falls under greater scrutiny. Two trends that have surely
