Whether you like it or not, more than sound goes into making a successful rock band. It starts with the riffs, typically, but there’s a lot more to it. Image. Dreamy eyes. Politics. All of these can play a part in a band’s popularity or lack thereof. Plenty of rock bands

Losing the brain game

There are times when it probably isn't 100 percent apparent that Tommy Weese is a survivor of Traumatic Brain Injury. If he's spent some time preparing, he can usually communicate unfettered for a good 20 to 30 minutes. It's when conversations linger that some of those surefire symptoms of severe TBI

Soldiers given a chance to reconnect with children while deployed

To a young mind, nothing says Daddy or Mommy is OK like a video of him or her. This reassurance, while parents are on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, can be a remarkable feeling - for both the parent and the child. While this wasn't necessarily the key reason behind

Soldiers' saints

A person who is the model of perfection - either spiritual or secular - is called a saint. Regardless of an individual's beliefs, saints offer believers a means by which to find a sense of safety. It is this sense of comfort, a belief that everything is going to work out

Army Reserves rebalancing

Satisfied that it's increased its ranks by about 20,000 soldiers and continues to meet its recruiting goals, the Army Reserve now is focused on recruiting more troops as they leave active duty to fill gaps at the mid-level ranks and in specific specialties.

Legion legacy a lure

Why join the American Legion - the oldest and, with nearly 3 million members worldwide, largest veterans group?  Old veterans may dominate Legion meetings, but with increasing numbers of new recruits, appeal reaches a second generation.

Mondays: Metal Mondays

You the know the kind of metal that fuels bands to rock out in some sort of industrial plant with sparks flying everywhere, rubbing bare shoulders and admiring one another's golden long locks and perfectly ripped jeans?

Saturdays: Slammin' on skates

Have you ever tried roller skating? It's incredibly difficult. And we're not in the mood to hear from all you skaters who swear by those traditional, four-wheeled abominations. Last time we even attempted to put a pair of those on, we spent more time on our back than we usually

3 DRINK MINIMUM: Rock the Dock Pub & Grill

Last year, after analyzing extensive locally-drawn anonymous polls, I determined The Dock was one of Pierce County’s top dive bars.  Shortly after The Dock achieved their illustrious “Top Dive Bar” status, ownership changed hands from the fine people of Johnny’s Dock to gorgeous newbie Gwendolyn Stence, who renamed the bar

They are family

The temptation is obvious, at least to someone who’s put together more than his fair share of articles such as this one — attempting to be thoughtful, insightful, fresh and — well — base enough to move papers. It’s a balancing act, and that last part makes it particularly tricky.
