Love and a Brazilian wax

You want to smell edible? This guy tells my sister she smells so good he could just take a bite out of her. She wears this perfume that’s just that amazing. I’m not a big perfume wearer as I have some kind of funky body chemistry that turns most synthetic perfumes to

Michelle Walters

The Dockyard Derby Dames roller derby league is high camp, and that’s where the real attraction lies for most players and fans. Bad-ass hot chicks in tight outfits and quad skates zoom around a track, hip-checking their opponents into the railing. Nice. Their fans, well, not so high camp. Every hoodie

Tacoma invasion

Bryan Willis is a man with an agenda. The pony farmer’s son completed his Master’s degree in Fine Arts from New York University’s Dramatic Writing Program, and then went on to work in many theatres’ literary departments. Additionally, his work has been produced off-Broadway, on the London fringe, throughout the United

Diwali Night 2007

OK, class, raise your hand if you’re down with the bhangra sound. Better yet, throw both your hands in the air and give ’em a slick flick at the wrist in your best approximation of the Punjabi party-down style. If you’re digging the North Indian dance floor thunder of bhangra

Immersed in art

The handy little booklet the Tacoma Arts Commission put out for the Studio Tours — Friday and Saturday, Nov. 10-11 — says that at each of the 41 artist studios and three schools on the tour visitors can pick up a card with a picture of the artist’s work. If

Vagabond Opera

A night with Vagabond Opera is a plunge down the rabbit hole into dirty European Gypsy immigrant love. Only in this rabbit hole, instead of Alice’s encounter with a phobic albino bunny and a feline with daily tooth whitening appointments, this trip includes a flame-masticating dancer with a hula hoop

The Royal's Bionic Man

Maybe it\'s because I grew up in a house where there was always some groovy Burt Bacharach hit on the record player, but I love anything from the \'60s. So when I walked into The Royal in downtown Olympia, I fell instantly in love. This huge, I mean massive place

LA Fitness

I spied the “LA Fitness” sign on the fence surrounding the razed building that was Gottschalks. While it makes me sad to see old buildings felled because of the history they represent, I have to say my heart didn’t exactly break to see that particular piece of architecture go. Still,

Family affair

It is always great to see budding theaters thrive. Not only does the growth of new theaters provide job security to those brave souls who opt to draw paychecks from reviewing their works, but it means that staged theater is alive and well as it finds new audiences in a

Radio Tacoma

I was hooked the moment I heard the name Radio Tacoma via a friend request on MySpace. I aimed my computer at it. Though the online station is less than two months old, the selections on the playlist range from the old-timey Tacoma classics like the live recorded crooning of

I heart the Volcano

Each of you wonderful readers knows that the Weekly Volcano is far from being above shameless self promotion, which is exactly what I’m going to throw down right here and now. Last Friday I had the privilege of witnessing the Weekly Volcano receive a 2007 AMOCAT award (along with Victory Music

Great Clayton Cop-out

It’s time for another one of those columns that I like to think of as The Great Clayton Cop-out. That’s when I offer an overview of exhibitions throughout the region because there’s no one thing I particularly want to review. Let’s face it, it’s a cop-out because there are shows that

Garage Basementia, Alaska

Usually, when I’m planning my column, I face a choice between Olympia and Tacoma. At the Weekly Volcano we pride ourselves on covering both music scenes, but it’s usually a one-or-the-other situation when it comes to Rock Rhetoric. This week, in a rare bit of advantageous coincidence, the Wagner Logic

An 'American Gangster' success story

Apart from the detail that he was a heroin dealer, Frank Lucas’ career would be an ideal case study for a business school. “American Gangster” tells his success story. Inheriting a crime empire from his famous boss, Bumpy Johnson, he cornered the New York drug trade with admirable capitalist strategies.

2 Days in Paris

2 Days in Paris Julie Delpy and Adam Goldberg play a New York couple, she French, who wrap up a miserable European holiday by spending two days in Paris, living above her parents. Not your usual lovers-in-Paris movie, but about two original, quirky characters so obsessed with their differences that Paris

The Wires

The Wires — a Portland-based garage band who will play McCoy’s in Olympia Saturday, Nov. 3 — are not Wire. I promise. Wire, as you probably know if you’ve studied English punk rock, formed in the mid’70s and are credited as one of the forefathers of “post-punk” (one of my least
