Washington National Guard is on cyberpatrol

"The National Guard, through its existing relationships within every state and territory, is in a unique and important position to help solve what I call the ‘cyber response capability gap.' That gap is the space that exists between what we acknowledge as a threat and our actual capability to do something

The Good Life: "The Great Beauty" is a tumultuous visual banquet

A word of warning before we begin: This is one of those movies. You know the kind: a dense, artsy and weird movie. It's the kind of film where, if asked to describe it, I'd normally answer something to the tune of, "Uh, it's about this guy, and, uh ...

Diagnosed with dyslexia in elementary school, Brianna Galvan has endured the "you can't" challenges in life. That's why Carol Galvan, Brianna's mother and biggest fan, has always been the encourager, the voice that says "You can." Friday, Carol believes her daughter will become a poster child for "can," an inspiration for the

Music Critics' Picks: Thomas Mudrick, Velocity, Blackstone Rangers, Angie and the Car Wrecks

[BEACH FUNK] + FRI, FEB. 21 Thomas Mudrick's music is a thrilling and unexpected stew of genres, calling to mind musical chameleons like Beck and Ween, but with a dedicated love of light psychedelia and soul. "Soul Glow" is a breezy bit of '70s beach funk, layered with dreamy aaahs and

Two Men, Two Guitars: Shane de Leon and Scott Arbogast in Olympia

A quick word about band names. As a music columnist, I'm constantly on the search for bands to fill these pages every week. Aside from certain signifiers (what type of music the venue typically plays, other bands with whom I'm familiar that are also on the bill, etc.), all I

Olympia independent bookstore Last Word Books is going underground

With The Beatles playing in the background, the rhythmic familiarity mingling with the scents of ink and must, Last Word Books in downtown Olympia feels like it always does: welcoming and mysterious. Basil, the black cat, still mills around, meowing at the occasional customer, and an employee sits behind the till,

Thursday, Feb. 27: Miss Massive Snowflake, Rainstick Cowbell

What does your mind go to when you hear the names Miss Massive Snowflake and Rainstick Cowbell (two bands currently nearing the end of month-long west coast tour)? If you're picturing a pair of twee indie bands or cutesy folk-rock, you'd be wrong. Miss Massive Snowflake and Rainstick Cowbell are

I love my music-writing gig. I can choose to preview any show I want. There isn't a scene I'm attached to. I'm not stuck with dreadlocks or a mohawk or a cowboy hat or a fedora or a trucker cap. I can listen to whatever I want, whatever the mood,

Saturday, Feb. 22: Blackstone Rangers

The music made by Blackstone Rangers is not immediately what one would imagine when thinking about the music that comes out of Dallas, Texas. While Blackstone Rangers are indeed Dallasites, their music strays from the rock and country that you might expect. Rather, Blackstone Rangers veer into dreampop territory, allowing
