"Blue Caprice" looks into the minds of the Beltway monsters

Biopics can be difficult even for an experienced filmmaker. The nature of the art form requires that a large part of the story, sometimes the subject's entire life, be severely truncated and other artistic liberties taken in order to create an interesting film with a sensible runtime.

Searching for stew in the South Puget Sound

Autumn. I love the onset of the season. I do all the usual autumn stuff: dodge geysers in the middle of Schuster Parkway; chase a flying Buick in Puyallup; drive all over town looking for a movie house not completely packed with government employees. But most of all, I look

Happy Hour Hug: Tanya Chapman of Engine House No. 9

Tanya Chapman is a fixture in the Tacoma bartending scene. I met Chapman at a Tacoma Beer Club gathering at the now defunct Stadium Bistro. She was pulling duty as TBC founder Steph DeRosa's sidekick, a position she held for years as documented in DeRosa's previous columns for this rag.

Blue Skies for Black Hearts indelible melodies and gorgeous guitars

Over the course of music history, there's been a strong contingent of bands making beautifully melodic pop music with a bit of an edge, but not enough of an edge to ever really get the attention they deserve. If guitars aren't being wrecked, people tend to take the music for

[POST PUNK] + FRI, OCT. 4 I know next to nothing about Half Kingdom, beyond what I can hear in their two available songs online. What I can tell, just by listening to them, is that they embrace a moody post-punk that teems with energy even as it confounds expectations. Clattering

Visual Edge: Hello Meghan Mitchell

Meghan Mitchell's drawings in the show "Hello" at Fulcrum Gallery are delightful. I could easily dismiss them as cute little drawings not really important as art, but I could just as easily dismiss the art of great graphic artists like Saul Steinberg and Jules Feiffer in the same way. I

Army private wins JBLM Operation Rising Star contest

And then there was Kiari Mhoon, the last singer standing. Mhoon, with his entertaining assortment of R&B love songs, won the Joint Base Lewis-McChord's ninth annual Operation Rising Star, a three-week talent competition that started with more than 40 singers. "He's very good," said Elizabeth Thunstedt, manager of the base's Warrior Zone.

Thursday, Oct. 10: Crooked Bangs

Hailing from Austin, Texas, Crooked Bangs is a band that is quite adept at building expectations and smashing them. Initially reveling in the sounds of '60s garage and '70s punk, Crooked Bangs slowly folds in elements of post-punk. It's compelling enough, but then you hear the vocals of Leda Ginestra

Saturday, Oct. 5: Olympia Fall Arts Walk Hip-hop Show

The merging of hip-hop with electro/techno occurred at the dawn of the '80s, and the flavor was so good with acts like Debbie Deb, Egyptian Lover, Kraftwerk and others that the relationship continues to grow. This weekend, award-winning hip-hop duo Never Sleep host and perform at downtown Olympia's quaint and

Big Star, and Alex Chilton in particular, was a band driven to madness by a nation turning a blind eye to some of the purest pop music around. In typical fashion, Big Star were ignored in their time, but later discovered by several generations of power pop acts that valued

Those that don combat boots and head downrange are always classified as heroes, but there's a rare few who keep selflessly serving long after their uniforms have been hung up in the closet.
