Bags of Raw-r (food that is)

I feed my dogs decent food: Nutro Natural Choice Lite with glucosamine and chondroitin.  I always thought, they have the glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health, they have the protein and other good stuff to keep them well-ish, and they have the kibble-only aspect for clean white teeth and no

Long flight

The missus and I are big fans of “West Side Story” even though it is sort of quaint and predictable no matter how a director stages it. Theaters have to assume that everyone in the audience has seen the show and know what they like since, well, everyone in the

\"Whorehouse\" and \"Take Me Out\"

“Whorehouse” Those whores are at it again — getting all uppity about being a victimless crime and what not. Such is the case at Tacoma Little Theatre as it finishes its season with “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” a look at life and politics surrounding the Chicken Ranch. [Tacoma Little Theatre, June

\"Sideways\" at Blue Mouse

“Sideways” is the next film screened as part of The Cans Film Festival, the Emergency Food Network and Food Connection’s food-theme movie festival — each film matched with a coupon to a local restaurant — to raise awareness to fight hunger. Thursday, June 14, “Sideways” will screen at the Blue

Take it or leave it

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, stop by the University of Washington-Tacoma art gallery to see the installation by Brooklyn, N.Y., artist Betsy Alwin. I’ll make a wild guess that you’ll find it fascinating — for upwards of two minutes. After that, you may catch yourself yawning. I drove

A near perfect match

If “Old School” and “She’s Having a Baby” lined up 50 yards apart, sprinted at each other at full speed and collided in violently comedic-sexual fashion spawning one film (“She’s Having an Old School Baby”?), the result would be “Knocked Up.”  Of course, that would mean “Old School” and “She’s Having

Killer of the year

Mr. Brooks is Portland’s Man of the Year.  He’s one of those 50ish, effortlessly charming multimillionaires who wear a tuxedo as easily as most of us don sweats.  Mr. Brooks has a hugely successful business and an adoring and gorgeous wife of 20-plus years who still banters with him and flirts

Gracie

Even today, with tens of thousands of soccer moms omnipresent across the landscape of suburban America, it is somewhat puzzling that the world’s most universally accepted sport — known everywhere outside the United States as football — still hasn’t totally enraptured U.S. sports fans.  Flash back to the late 1970s, and

Oly and Thee Ohsees

Bobble Tiki knows a good match when he sees one. Rum and Coke. Ben and Jerry. Simon and Simon. All of these pairs get high marks in Bobble Tiki’s book. Sunday, June 3, Thee Ohsees will make a tour stop at Le Voyeur in Olympia, and something tells Bobble Tiki Oly and

Basic Radio

Three roommates, all musicians, decided to start a band. They named it Basic Radio because, “We didn’t need some band name with a ‘deep’ meaning, we just needed something that would stick,” says Brandon Eisenbeis. The result is a lot more classic rock sounding than the poppy name implies. “We wanted

Radio free Gig Harbor

Students at Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor have their own radio station. Outside of Tacoma School of the Arts, there aren’t many high school electives that rate as high on the coolness scale as radio production class. I decided to investigate.KGHP FM was started 19 years ago by three

(hed) pe and White Trash Night

Wanna hear something crazy? Of course you do. About three weeks ago, in an act of extreme preparedness and preplanning (something I’m not exactly known for), I spoke with Jahred Shane, who co-created and still fronts (hed) pe.  (hed) pe, originally scheduled to play The 54, will bring its “Scratch ‘N’ Sniff”

Yacht, Pearl Django and more

Thursday, May 31 ELECTRO-POP yacht The first time I saw the Art of Noise, the band blew my mind with its video of the song “Close To the Edit.”  The rhythms were coarse, but they blended flawlessly with the mechanical sounds and visual theater that accompanied them. No vocals, just a punked-out

The Apex Theory

I really dislike labeling bands.  Alternative metal is where the Apex Theory has been slotted, but let’s get real, it’s a rock and roll band and nothing more. Sure, it incorporates complex guitar riffs and rapid fire drum beats among a wash of volume, but the group’s music is not

Gifting season again

I’m graduating June 8. Technically I graduated last year, but since there was no big ceremony in the winter, I have yet to “celebrate” my accomplishment. While I suspect my kid won’t be too ecstatic about three hours of Pomp and Circumstance and a couple of other key individuals I’d like as

Sanford & Son & art

Art shows up in the most unlikely places in Tacoma, and then blends right in. Witness Sanford & Son Antiques’ Middle Floor Merchants.  Here, Gretchen Bailey has brought local art into her shop since last autumn, and then encouraged its spread into formerly vacant shop spaces. Right around Valentines Day, the

Uncovering Japantown

Photographer and community activist Gordon Swetland, along with a small team of artists, historians and preservationists, would like to offer you an opportunity to experience a rapidly-disappearing piece of Tacoma’s landscape and history. In its heyday, Tacoma’s Japantown — Nihonmachi to the people who lived there — had everything the City

Azarra Salon and Lucky Dog Outfitters

Hooked on the straight stuff… Your friend offers you something that you innocently accept.  You don’t realize the product will plunge you into a twitching need for more, more, more; the cheap substitute won’t do it for you, you need the good stuff. So it happened when Kris Blondin offered me the use

Body Evolution

I’ve passed the Body Evolution door many times, curious as to what goes on behind it. Recently, I passed through the door and found a space with great chi and many curtained doorways. Behind some of these curtains, owner Kia Carr brings a technology-meets-relaxation approach to wellness and weight loss. This
