Apocalyptic genius

Having recently authored a novel about the Apocalypse as predicted in the last few pages of the Good Book, I can tell you quite a bit about what people in this area think about the End of the World:  almost nothing.  Even most churchgoing Christians view the Rapture as a

The letdown

On one Valentine's Day a couple years back, when I was considerably less cynical, I sent four old men to my girlfriend's work. They were my present: four octogenarian men in white tuxedos, brandishing roses and barber shop serenades. It cost $40, and it was absolutely perfect - as nearly

Valentine's Day: What a girl really wants

My Valentine's Day list of demands (I mean wishes) are really quite simple:  a gourmet meal, a full body massage, and maybe a night on the town. Then there's my friend, Becky. She muses about diamond jewelry and a trip to the ocean as the perfect romantic V-Day. No matter the

HIP-HOP IN THE 25360: Afrok wins

Olympia MC, Afrok dominated the much scrutinized and criticized nominee list for the 2nd Annual 25360 Awards.  Not only was he nominated for the most awards (three), but he won each category as voted on by the public.  Afrok won in the categories of Best Come Up, awarded to the

There's beauty in simplicity - the Presidents of the U.S.A. proved it. Think "Peaches," and "Lump." These days, among other things, Chris Ballew of the Presidents spends his time going by Caspar Babypants - dishing out goofy kids' music. Next Thursday he'll hit the Wheelock Library - the first

Friday, Feb. 5: The Smothers Brothers

To me, the Smothers Brothers always seemed awfully square and dopey. But what the fuck do I know? I was born in 1980. To an older generation out there, from a time of Vietnam and John & Yoko bed-ins, the Smothers Brothers are not only funny folksters, but downright

Thursday, Feb. 4: Thursday Beer Run

Think running and drinking don't mix unless there's a K-9 unit involved? Not true. Last Thursday, the Tacoma Runners - a group of T-Town pavement pounders - held their first Thursday Beer Run - a weekly gathering of runners for a short jog at a  "social pace." It was

Sunday, Feb. 7: Super Bowl Party

The Super Bowl means one thing this year, with the Saints playing in the NFL's big game: Men in tight gold pants will be everywhere. And, on the other side of the ball, lanky Peyton Manning will be gunning for his second Lombardi trophy. The drama is sure to
