Urban Spelunker: Westgate Tacoma

Sometimes while spelunking, I venture into idyllic pockets of community that are bursting with locally owned brick and mortar establishments that aim to fill your needs with unique flair and personality. Other times, I run across a business district whose facade of fast-food chains and large corporate-run joints may have

The Rockford Files: "The Time Machine Is Broken" is not broken

Revolutionizing Army uniforms

The U.S. Army is developing a battery to improve soldiers' agility on the battlefield while meeting the demands of an increased power burden stemming from new networked electronic devices. The Conformal Wearable Battery, or CWB, is flexible and integrates into a Soldier's body armor. It conforms to the body, which Army

Taste of Tacoma recap

When Festivals Inc., the force behind the Bite of Seattle and Taste of Tacoma, approached TV Tacoma's own Amanda Westbrooke, big changes were set in motion for a more Tacomacentric festival than in past years. Westbrooke couldn't have been more gung-ho. "I was overwhelmed and excited to be a part of

Fractal rag: A people's history of "Ragtime"

The closer you look at any fractal shape, the more complex and beautiful it gets. In fact, there's a point at which you suddenly find yourself presented with an exact duplicate of the original, albeit at a much smaller scale. So it is with history. Look deeply into any particular

Visual Edge: Ron Hinton Soars

The latest works by Ron Hinton (not to be confused with Ron Hinson) at Childhood's End are more dynamic than anything of his I've seen before. At least the wall-hanging sculptures. The free-standing pieces on pedestals are more of the same stuff I've seen from him in the past -

Jesus on the Moon brings music out of hibernation

Sometimes I think about all of the music I've heard in my life. Hundreds upon hundreds of hours of sounds drifting into my head - albums, radio, live performances, passing someone on the sidewalk as they hum a tune to themselves. It's almost incomprehensible how much music I've been actively

Through Aug 4: "Ragtime"

It's a long play, three hours give or take, even after some numbers were trimmed from the 2009 Broadway revival. On opening night of Tacoma Musical Playhouse's second production (the first was seven years ago), early numbers were plagued by recurring sound issues and the hollow acoustics

Tuesday, July 23: The Littlest Birds

Roots music revivalists have begun to get a bad rap recently - especially thanks to the influx of banjo-strumming posers like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers - but the Littlest Birds more than pass the smell test. Coming from the mountain town of Bishop, Calif., this cello-and-banjo duo does

Sunday, July 21: Dog Jaw

In case you were wondering whether Dog Jaw were as aggressive as their name might suggest, the answer is a resounding yes. The opening track on the Olympia punk outfit's album, Slow to Build, begins with what sounds like dogs howling and whimpering, before guitars slowly begin to emerge, and
