Scarlett Johansson sizzles in "Under the Skin"

In the 1995 horror/science-fiction/presumably unintentional comedy film Species, Natasha Henstridge gives a subdued, nuanced performance as Sil, a shrieking nymphomaniac space monster disguised as a beautiful, vestiphobic woman hell-bent on canoodling with the nearest human male in order that she might loose her unearthly brood on an unsuspecting populace. It's one

Mirrorgloss are a breath of fresh air

There's a certain amount of stagnation that comes with the Tacoma music scene. Some years are blooming with activity, while others recede into monotony. This is the result of being a relatively small town situated nearby a bustling hub of music activity. Bands that are unique and popular tend to

Wednesday, May 7: Venkman

I wonder what Bay Area punkers Venkman would think of the impending Ghostbusters 3. Something tells me that they would be none too happy. Named after Bill Murray's iconic, sardonic Peter Venkman character - and populated by members with names like Air Bud and Hot Pants - something tells me
