Art @ Work

Tacoma’s Art at Work Month has become a Godzilla’s feast of literary, visual and performing arts. Is there any other town of comparable size in the Western Hemisphere that has anything to match it? I don’t think so. November is Art at Work Month. Festivities begin with an opening celebration

Go "Into The Woods"

For a show not well seated in reality, take a trip to Seattle to see “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim. The show tells the story of a fabled baker and his wife as they journey into the woods on a quest to lift a witch’s curse so they can

Roller derby finals, Art at Work and more

THE CONTEST Define-a-Thon Funny, I was just in Goodwill the other day and saw a (used) For Dummies product that made me wince openly. It was, I think, Cookies for Dummies. Not a book. Some sort of kit. Some sort of toxic powdered mix in a large porcelain Dummies-logoed container, with dumbed-down

Good, ribald fun in Hell

Say “let’s go to the opera” and eyes may glaze with visions of large women in Viking hats breaking beer bottles with their sustained vibrato. Say “let’s go to a two-hour romp with dancing and singing, centering around a bawdy story about philandering gods” and the reaction might change. Turns out, in

Wolves In the Throne Room

Black metal is not a musical genre I pretend to connect with or even understand for that matter. I don’t say this negatively, I say it honestly. Black metal is beyond me. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, it means I don’t get it. I don’t comprehend advanced mathematics either, and

"Dan's" the man

Steve Carell of “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” has a personality, or maybe it is a lack of personality, that is growing on me. He is content to exist on the screen without sending wild semaphores of his intentions, his uniqueness and how funny he is. He’s an everyman like a very

Scary Day the right way

Bobble Tiki loves all holidays — or most of them anyway. Bobble Tiki loves Christmas because he loves getting presents. Bobble Tiki loves Thanksgiving because he loves stuffing his face. And Bobble Tiki loves Halloween because he loves dressing up like a damn fool. While Halloween falls on a Wednesday this

Trick or eat?

For many a Hallow’s Eve, the Proctor businesses have opened their doors to wee ones on Oct. 31, 4-6 p.m., for safe and sane trick-or-treating as parents stroll behind. For those who are childless, still hanging from the night before, or reluctant to join the throngs of would-be Paris Hiltons,

Meatless in Tacoma

Vegetarians and vegans looking to dine out in Tacoma have it rough. There are plenty of meatless options scattered among the city’s menus, but they are limited and inconsistent from spot to spot. For those looking for a meatless menagerie, Quickie Too and Marlene’s Market and Deli are Zion. Meat

Scary run

Ghostbusters hunt ghosts, while those running in the in Tenino hunt down a healthy lifestyle. Both have a great time doing what they do, and one of the groups has a much better cardiovascular profile. But while the Ghostbusters live in celluloid, the ghostmuster-ers live yearly, and have for almost 20

According to owner Christine Philippsen, a steady stream of people flowed through the space, culminating in what Philippsen considers “the icing on the cake,” as Cyclopsycho Ashley Shomo performed to a standing room only crowd during her

Mismatch

I consider myself a music nerd, so comparing bands is generally pretty frickin’ easy. Still, every so often, a band stumps me and I need to admit defeat. Such is the case with Mismatch who play Café Diallo Saturday. While it’s hard to peg these guys, I’ll give it a
