Very personal orchestra

Andrew Buelow was happy living in Michigan, where he was the head honcho at the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. His family had a summer home in Traverse when he was growing up in Wisconsin, so he jumped at the chance to move there when the director position opened up at the

Poppy Seed Café

Poppy Seed Café, has been a tasty start to Fircrest’s day for almost two years. Owners and chef Darin Adams and wife, Shelly, load their menu with breakfast staples and a little something extra. Just thinking the words chorizo, apple smoked sausage and homemade country gravy start the mouth watering. Scrambles

Dynamite Jacks' The I Hate Jill

After a year-and-a-half of commanding a corner of downtown DuPont as the Harbor Rock Bar & Grill, the owners decided to scrap the semi-successful venture, remodel it with mining items bought off eBay, and reopened two weeks ago as Dynamite Jacks. I dashed in from the rain last Friday night and

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

It’s been five long years since the world has heard anything new from Boston ska-core band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, but it seems the band’s four-year hiatus might be up with a release of their new album, Medium Rare, last month. A collection of previously unreleased songs and tracks from

On local screens this week

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM: One of the many reasons “Alien” was so effective was the perfect monster it created.  A killing machine that couldn’t be killed.  In fact, when Sigourney Weaver forced the beast out to space at the conclusion of the film, I remember saying to myself, “It’s not

Mastering the masterpieces

“Atonement” begins on joyous gossamer wings and descends into an abyss of tragedy and loss. Its opening scenes in an English country house between the wars are like a dream of elegance, and then a 13-year-old girl sees something she misunderstands, tells a lie, and destroys all possibility of happiness

I predict ...

I’m psychic. Cool, huh? Channeling my psychic powers, I predict that the South Sound will be sick with new music in 2008. I predict new albums on vinyl will make a comeback. I predict that mp3 players will sing Tacoma’s songs. And I predict nightclubs will burst at the seams

My Revolver

Now that I’m back from my year in America’s hippest city, Portland, living in Tacoma, there are many things I’m happy about. I’m happy my rent is cheaper. I’m happy to once again have a 253 prefix. I’m happy to be able to actually feel good about myself again. (In

Thirty fingers of doom

Pianist. There, Bobble Tiki said it. While Bobble Tiki would like to consider himself above snickering like a junior high boy every time he hears the title “pianist,” that’s just not Bobble Tiki. Bobble Tiki’s the kind of tiki who will forever think passing gas is funny, and find equal humor in

Hell's Kitchen show and more

Thursday, Jan. 3 POP ROCK the reaching I’m going to go ahead and admit something. I love Coldplay. There, I said it, and I feel better for getting that off my chest. I guess the reason I have a soft spot for the pop rockers stems from my affection for the Fab

Jason Harris

These days it’s here a fireman, there a fireman, everywhere a fireman — but who’s complaining? Not me. Puyallup Fire Station #3 physician assistant Jason Harris, 39, burns down the house with his charisma, personality and community involvement, but his smoldering eyes and washboard abs save me. His fireman coat is back

In the bag

Maui Splash While on vacation in Maui I discovered Tedeschi Vineyards, a winery that produces pineapple wine. Also known as Maui Wines, this vineyard sits majestically at Ulupalakua Ranch. This volcanic soil is exceedingly fertile and has been turning out Carnelian grapes of high quality with chameleon abilities to produce red

Lunch rules

ANNOUNCER: A good sandwich is a wonderful thing, not to be taken for granted. It has the capability of all-encompassing nourishment, containing protein and vitamins, roughage and dairy, all cozied up inside a carbohydrate shell. Usually a simple enough formula, it is possible to get it wrong, and the boys

Don't Tell Sophie

Is it just me, or does saying “2008” fell weird to anyone else? Am I the only one who thinks “2008” sounds like cars should be flying and robots should be making my bed? Whether it sounds funny or not, there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s 2008 now. There’s
