Art is Anarchy

Speakeasy

Angela Jossy needs 100 artists with $100, some time to spare and a desire to sell some art. It doesn’t really matter what kind. All genres are welcome, within reason. Your work will have to be small enough to share space with as many as 27 other artists, but seriously,

Big Friction Jam reunion

PARTNERS IN CRHYME Friday, Sept. 4 It all started with some “ill rhymes and a hand-me-down keyboard” and evolved into a hardcore hip-hop act that sounds like maybe they incorporated an 808, a guitarist, and a better herbal jazz cigarette hookup.

Spangled bursts, sparkles and shines

Zealot readers of this column already know the absolute high regard I have for Tacoma Little Theatre’s new Managing Artistic Director Scott Campbell. I have gushed about him so much that one would think I owe him money. I don’t, by the way. Campbell has that golden touch TLT needs

Fancy frames

I’ve been told by friends whose artistic judgment I respect that my reviews are too forgiving. They might be right. I try to give artists the benefit of the doubt, and I’m never as critical in my reviews as I’d sometimes like to be. Mama said, “If you can’t say

Ask Amy

Boy meeks girl Recently, you wrote about “female flirting moves recognized across cultures” — smiling, making eye contact and looking away, toying with hair or objects, and touching a guy’s arm. I disagree about them being “recognized.” Female employers have made eye contact and even smiled, but that didn’t mean they
