"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

Teaching and selling green

Olympia’s new eco-friendly shop, Whirligig, located at 314 Capitol Way N, opened Saturday. 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

Some of the best known Chamber poppers are Flaming Lips and Thievery Corporation. Some lesser known groups who fall into this elite category are Stars, Saint Etienne and the artist

Black Metal lite

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

Letz Eat Now

Letz Eat Now delivers food. Simple idea, and yet, how very ingenious. Imagine you’re at the beauty shop getting very precise Elvira “Mistress of Dark-Queen of the Night” makeup applied when your huge wig unravels. The hairdresser freaks. You’re stuck there till 6 p.m. with plans for a little spooky

The Lobster Shop Bar

Now that I’m on the brink of my 32nd year on this planet, my personal nightlife priorities have changed. Long gone are the days when I seek out a packed bar or club teaming with all kinds of human meat, exposing as much skin as possible, a sweaty dance floor, and

Creating the art of the scene

James Ceccanti circulates around the basement recreation area at the Epworth LeSourd Methodist Church in Tacoma, stopping to chat, offering mask-making advice, and in general making participants feel welcomed.

Don't look

I first became aware of Bil Fleming’s art when he had a really nice drawing in a juried show at South Puget Sound Community College last year. Now he offers two interactive sculptural installations in the Capitol Theater: “The Projectionists’ Gardens” and “Reverse Psychology.” Depending on your state of mind

Sushi class

Sushi and you The last time I attempted to make sushi at home, I wound up with sticky rice in my hair and on the cat. So you might just see me at Twokoi Japanese Cuisine Wednesday, Nov. 17, when Twokoi owner and executive chef Jackie Young Koh will host a
