Bring back the watch

At the airport on a recent trip, I saw a gal dig for her cell phone after asking, “What time is it?” Everyone around her began to grope their pockets for their own phones, but no one could tell her right away. In a couple of minutes she found it,

Bumpy's

It was only a matter of time before I graced the tiny tavern named Bumpy’s in Puyallup. My gal-pal JustJen had been telling me to visit this joint since the first day we did the Bar Exam at Wayne’s Inn. I very rarely listen to her or heed her advice,

In the Bag

Divine Davines Davines’ Extra Virgin Skin Care line offers an Anti Aging Hand Cream. I’m a devoted fan of the nongreasy, soothing cream made from tomato, olive, walnut, and almond extracts. The scent is one of delicate earth, slightly sweet; yet, it doesn’t smell like food or cloying fake dessert. The

This thriller is worth the ride

“Untraceable” is a horrifying thriller, smart and tightly told, and merciless. It begins with this premise: A psychopath devises ways to slowly kill people online, in live streaming video. The more hits he gets, the further the process continues, until finally his captive is dead. “You’re setting a new record!”

New Rambo

Rambo Sylvester Stallone last year breathed new life into the “Rocky” series. Now, he turns to resurrecting his Rambo character. It would excite me if the film revisits the ideas of the original “First Blood” rather than the rescue, shoot-up nonsense the series evolved into. In the new film, John Rambo is

Odd shows

“odd couple” Neil Simon’s recipe for onstage success: Take two people with conflicting personalities. Put them in confined living quarters. Add a sprinkle of personal hygiene jokes. Allow the tension to rise for about an hour. Cool. Serve. Enjoy! Paradise Theatre is staging this classic buddy comedy about roommates from different

wRight Brothers

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

Rumbletowne Records

When the Weekly Volcano hears the words “record label” and “Olympia” in the same sentence, we tend to get a little giddy. We recently received word that Rumbletowne Records, named after a soon-to-be extinct Olympia house party venue (like the famed Red House), will officially launch in February with a

One helluva cup of coffee

The comforting smell of coffee welcomes those who walk into the Java Flow in Tillicum. The hardwood floors shine. On the wall to the right is a framed movie poster promoting “We Were Soldiers Once,” starring Mel Gibson.  To the left of the poster — on the other side of a

Bayou cooking class

Bayou Billy When Chef Billy Robertson talks about food and cooking, his smile gets as wide as the muddy Mississippi. Given what went down in his home state of Louisiana — it’s a wonder he’s able to smile at all. I smile every time I visit his Olympia restaurant Cicada. His inventive

Ask Amy Alkon

Apocalypse eventually My girlfriend of four years is sweet, smart and sexy, in a vanilla kind of way, but I’ve never felt passionate about her. We’re both grad students and we were getting sick of our respective roommates. My girlfriend wanted to move our relationship forward, and found us a great

High waist

Victory is mine! I’ve waited years, and although it’s been a snaillike process, the thong baring, low riding pants have finally gone back to buttcrack hell where they belong. A few years ago the high waist reemerged, but it’s taken designers awhile to get it just right. For 2008, designers

House Blend Thursdays

Bobble Tiki is a tiki about town. Of course, he’s also a social anxiety ridden hermit at times, but that’s the nice thing about Bobble Tiki. He mixes it up. He’s a little like everyone and a lot like no one. Being a sometimes socialite, Bobble Tiki truly enjoys the resurgence

Ghosts and Liars, Charlotte Thistle and others

Thursday, Jan. 24 FOLK charlotte thistle I’ve always been a sucker for women songwriters. Maybe it’s because they give me insight on how to deal with the opposite sex. But folk singer Charlotte Thistle refuses to give me any tips on how to do this as she pens tunes that speak directly
