Breakin' up with Seattle

Dear Seattle: I’m breaking up with you, and I’m officially and forever over you. After you essentially kicked me out of your city and your county when I decided I wanted to buy a piece of property, we were pretty much done. But then, all along I’ve continued to hear your people

Kris Orlowski

As a music writer, this is probably the last thing I should admit, but what the hell. I’ve always believed in honesty. Sometimes, when I’m feeling particularly cynical or particularly burned out, reading band bios really gets to me. Sometimes I feel like if I have to trudge through one more

Our awesome American Idiots

As if enough things in life hadn’t been making me feel old lately, like marriage and fatherhood and the way my naked ass looks in the mirror, Kevin Day of Top Heavy Crush delivered a real zinger Tuesday. As we talked on the phone about his band’s upcoming show at

'F' is for feelings

Think about “entertainment” and the visuals that spring to mind. Jazz hands, punk rock, blues guitar, a chamber quartet, lights and action in a dark movie theatre, or possibly even slapstick antics on a stage might have popped into that brain. Think about “entertainer” and different, possibly related images might pop up.

Warren Miller, Urbanaut and more

THE SLOPES Snow porn If it’s November, it must be Warren Miller time. Again. Since before Ike was president, Miller has been making, more or less, annual films dedicated to the exhilaration of all things vertical and snowy. The fact that he’s still doing it — though the actual director’s reins have

All Freakin' Night

It’s that ghoulishly gross time of year again. I hear the gentle falling of leaves in the graveyard and the sound of buzzing flies. Ah, the sound of things dying. It’s my kind of season. Keeping with the season of the witch, those creepy folks at the Olympia Film Festival

Start your day the Inn way

The Inn breakfast Federal Way’s Village Inn has a homey, relaxed feel resembling other traditional American cuisine chain restaurants.  The restaurant’s interior is simple, if a little dated, with comfortable booths as well as tables. Ambiance is not why one would go to Village Inn — value for the entire family

Between the tracks

The weather outside, although not exactly frightful, wasn’t all that inviting either. I was wet, a little cold and very hungry. But once I got inside, I knew I wanted to take my time before I chose how I would satisfy my hunger. For the moment, it was enough to

Adding spice to life

India transports me to another level I happily confess my skittishness when it comes to Indian food: Curry gives me the willies. I\'ve heard rumors of richly spiced, aromatic, subtly flavorful Indian dishes, but I never seem able to track them down. I suspect most of these elusive meals are prepared

A little patch of Zen

You know that special geographical locale when you’re in it. It might be a snowy mountain lookout, or a winding forest trail. Possibly, there’s a patch on a certain beach where the rocks, water and sound of the waves brings you to your happy place. Students at Tacoma Community College —

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

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

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
