Mike Preuss: Big Sur

As a recent college graduate, I spend most of summer days racking my brain for exciting post-grad life plans. You know, intellectually stimulating but badass; somewhat financially sound, but totally spontaneous; completely unique and fulfilling. Like maybe recording a solo album in a solar-powered van in the California wilderness? Something

The rise of dj dAb

Thomas Alva Edison, who invented the phonograph in 1878, was a genius, but even he couldn't have foreseen the rise of his invention as a musical instrument. It's a shame. Imagine how his face would have lit up like a lightbulb (get it?) after witnessing a DJ elate a crowd

The little mural that could

I don't believe it. Someone in Tacoma is selling art. A lot of it. And spray paint. A lot of it. Don't sleep on Gallery 38 Art Supply on 38th Avenue. I hope someone has a fit. Because Gallery 38 is a graffiti joint. And they're selling art. I don't believe it.

The world of the urban chicken farmer

He who depends on himself will attain the greatest happiness. — Chinese Proverb. It must be this proverbial state of mind that has compelled thousands of urban dwellers to acquire egg-laying hens - myself included. Recently I was asked to save some hens from a divorce.  As the offer stood, we could

RAGNET: Sunday drive

In 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 chuckle,

3 DRINK MINIMUM: Bonney Lake Tavern

Thanks to Michael, creator of last week's "spread your wings" email (which instructed us to head out east), Bandito Betty and I were stuck in Bonney Lake for the day.  Last week we ventured up the big hill, otherwise known as State Route 410, and set our sights on some

ADVICE GODDESS: The woman who mistook her sinkhole for a boyfriend

QUESTION: I'm thinking of postponing my wedding. My fiance seems incapable of being apart from me. We dated long distance, so I didn't realize the extent of his clinginess until we moved in together. If I want some "me time," he gets offended. If I don't stand or sit next

Chain and the Gang, Basemint, Night Beats

It took nearly an hour and a half after the planned start time for a band to actually take the stage. I'm not ready to say that this was an entirely bad thing. In that empty hour and a half, the above average-sized crowd had ample time to get

Hi, My name is Sam Ramos and I am a Samoyed. My adoptive human mother, Sheila, will be going away for training from July 16 through September 21, 2010. She will be going to Ft. Sam Houston, Texas and I wish I could go with her but I'd probably get a

Saturday, July 10: Some Things Don't Have To Make Sense

Cool art and music aren't a bad start to a Saturday evening, but rather than your ex's mixtape and pasting together a photo collage, hanging out at "Some Things Don't Have To Make Sense" makes, well, more sense. Inspired by James Hume and the Dead Artists' Kulture Lab parties
