Nature being arduous enough, Bobble Tiki tends to avoid the supernatural. He has, however, had his brushes with the otherworldly. He called Miss Cleo back in the day, just to find out if the accent was real. And Bobble Tiki swears that every time he has his tarot read the

Through Feb. 28: Tapmaster 2014

Bars aren't just for getting drunk anymore. These days, South Sound pubs offer more activities than a cruise ship. Tides Tavern wants to make it crystal clear its 11th annual Tapmaster program isn't about chugging yards of beer then taking a flying leap off the dock into the harbor. Instead,

In conversation with Judy Collins

The life and career of folk singer Judy Collins is almost too storied to get into without resorting to bullet points: her rise through the ranks of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the early '60s; her discovering of Leonard Cohen (which led to her making the first recordings of

Meet Maj. Gen. Terry Ferrell

As Maj. Gen. Terry Ferrell is about to move into his new command position at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the best way to see what he'll do as the new commander of the 7th Infantry Division is to look at what he's done. In Ferrell's last assignment, he talked about the importance

Local craft distilleries release new products, Seahawks cocktails

Small craft distilleries have gained recognition nationally and have become the preferred source of spirits for many - from speakeasies to dive bars and everything in between, including personal liquor cabinets. This isn't a surprising trend considering the quality and variety of product that craft distilleries are putting out into

I was all set to review The Invisible Woman, just another of the many great films playing at The Grand Cinema. I spent the past week boning up on my Dickens so I could make a passable attempt at aping his writing style. Then, editor Pappi Swarner ran some ambitious,

Return of Bob's Java Jive

From the outside, nothing much seems to have changed about the world famous Bob's Java Jive. Still a dingy kettle nestled on South Tacoma Way, still the place where junkie William Hurt and junkier Keanu Reeves were hired to kill a man in I Love You To Death (seriously, go

[FOLK ROCK] + FRI, JAN. 31 On a recent re-watching of the great Band documentary, The Last Waltz, I was once again struck by the sheer awkwardness of that final performance. As all of the film's guest stars come back on to perform "I Shall Be Released" together, what they end

Aerialists flying high in Olympia

Sara Sparrow is an entertainer. She is a contortionist, an aerialist, a dancer, a master of acrobatics and a teacher. She has, as she calls it, "a circus background." Many of Sparrow's shows are performed in Seattle, where she does solo and collaborative work and is a member of the Aerialistas,

Visual Edge: Left to the Elements at Handforth Gallery

The latest show at Tacoma Public Library's Handforth Gallery features paintings, photography and mixed-media works by three artists, all of which investigate the effects of time as weather wears away urban and industrial buildings and machinery.
