The photography of Brian Kasnyik

By day, Brian Kasnyik picks through boxes of bananas, apples and oranges, inspecting each one before he places them on display, pausing occasionally to chat with an elderly woman, slice a piece of peach for a child, or laugh heartily with a regular. By night, the produce manager dreams of his

Farmers markets frozen treats

Farmers market season is in full force all over Tacoma, making farm-fresh food easy to bring right to the dinner table. But let's face it, a big juicy apple or beautiful bunch of greens isn't always what you are hankering for. The summer sunshine is blazing from above, your forehead is

In Tacoma, The Helm, Madera, Art on Center (and its various incarnations) and Brick and Mortar are all gone. And does anybody even remember Aesthetics, Commencement, Random

Through June 6: Student Art Exhibit

Of course there are a few clunkers in the 8th Annual Student Art Exhibit at South Puget Sound Community College, but there are plenty of impressive works as well. Most impressive of all may be a large cardboard forest against the back wall of the gallery. It's a collaborative work

Through June 9: "9 to 5"

In an era of Mad Men where glamorizing sexism and misogyny isn't given a second thought, it's no wonder that shows like 9 to 5, based on the 20th Century Fox motion picture, are being produced. True to the plot of the film starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane

Thursday, May 30: The Sweeteners

When I learned the Sweeteners are residents of Aberdeen via Anchorage, it made total sense. Their grunge-tinged garage rock is so distinctly reminiscent of these grey, blue-collar towns - the same towns that birthed guitar-worshiping notables such as Nirvana and Modest Mouse (not to get into

How does one describe the enjoyment derived from a jam band to people who don't like jam bands? The answer is not easy. Jam bands, known for long, improvisational, almost jazz-inspired sets that baffle some and amaze others, have divided music fans for decades since Pink Floyd

[ART ROCK] + SAT, MAY 25 As a musical presence in the Tacoma scene, Peter Tietjen's projects have always stood out as fiercely, almost stubbornly individualistic. Throughout his various incarnations as Umber Sleeping and I Like Science, not to mention the lineup changes that those bands underwent,

Friday, May 24: Levels

Looking at the Facebook page for Levels, the only information they offer is that they are a "Seattle-based band." The end. Clicking on to listen to their album, it's easy to see why they don't feel the need to elaborate on who they are or what they do. From the

Outdoor Addict: Penrose Point State Park

Some days I feel like the Black Night from Monty Python. "Your leg's come off!"  "'Tis but a flesh wound!" Not to be dramatic or anything but this whole tripod thing gets real old. However I managed to persevere and take a friend through a spring rite of passage for

JBLM Soldier to run 406 miles for vets

Ultra long distance runners are strong-minded individuals. Capt. Richard Kresser fits this description. "I run to challenge myself," the native of Iowa said. "I want to see if I can do it." An engineer assigned to 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, Kresser said he was an average track and cross-country runner in high

Memorial Day: The Superpower

Dinesh D'Souza immigrated to the United States from Mumbai, India. In the famous editorial, "Ten Great Things About America," he remarked on blessings he saw that we, born here, tend not to notice.  For example, he says, "the ordinary guy" in most countries does not have a car, a high-definition TV

UK playwright Pericles Snowdon's Bluebeard is a story about isolation, family, betrayal, apocalypse and parenthood.
