Saturday, May 29: Celebration of the Life of Dave Graham

Dave Graham, 49, passed away May 17, 2014, after a courageous battle with cancer. With his passing, each of the many Tacoma circles he ran in will never fully enclose again - especially the circles housing Dave's good friend, John Kephart. Read Kepart's reflections on Dave here. A potluck memorial

Washington-bred filmmaker and wine aficionado Colin West has been hanging out with Allen Shoup, former CEO of Chateau St. Michelle and now the winemaker and the owner of Long Shadows Winery in Washington state. Yes, he's been drinking wine with Shoup, but more importantly, West has been filming the experience

Friday, May 30-Saturday, May 31: "A Life in the Theatre"

We were two or three scenes into David Mamet's two-hander A Life in the Theatre, the debut production from Tacoma's Working Class Theatre NW, when my wife leaned over and whispered, "People do not talk like this." I knew what she meant. Actors and critics often claim Mamet's truncated

Are you eager to unleash your inner Nikola Tesla? No, I'm not talking about finally using that death ray you've been building in your basement. I'm talking about science, where you posit a hypothesis, test it, observe what happens, analyze the data and draw a conclusion. With the rise of

Jackie Kashian is funny, snarky, smart, Wisconsin-y, and, well a dork. Her podcast, The Dork Forest, is dense with her obsessions with video games, comic books and birdwatching. On The Dork Forest, Kashian interviews fellow comedians as well as non-celebrity guests, focusing the conversation around her guests' "dorkdoms" - special

Exploring our Western roots at Tacoma Art Museum

As theme shows culled from a museum's permanent collection go, "Northwest in the West: Exploring Our Roots" is not half bad. There are works that have been shown at TAM multiple times before, like Gaylen Hansen's iconic "Kernal Riding Through Snakes" and William Ivey's "Blues and Whites," and that's all right

A face full of U.S. Coast Guard MSST training at Pier 36 Seattle

We hit the wave head-on, and green water and white foam exploded over the bow and cabin of our 25-foot, Defender class boat. I caught a face full of salt water. The M240 gunner in the bow turned and grinned; the boat driver just laughed. I looked up to see four other small

"Watermark" - the most entertaining film about humanity and water since "Noah"

Earth is 70 percent covered in water. The atmosphere is so thick with water vapor that water periodically rains from the sky. All life on this planet requires water - directly or indirectly - in order to survive. Lastly and perhaps most importantly: Super Soakers. Is it any wonder we have

Ages and Ages just wish you'd dance all ready

In one of the final shots of Stop Making Sense - a movie that notably eliminated shots of the crowd in favor of lovingly photographed views of the Talking Heads - we finally get a glimpse of the audience, and they are going fucking bonkers. Whenever I see those shots,

Let the truth be known: I am secretly scared to death to fly across any ocean, into any foreign country, for any reason whatsoever.  Even if it's to eat the best goddamn meal I'll ever have, I will not travel. Call me a scaredy cat, a wuss, or a coward -

INK THIS! - Celebrating Northwest printmaking at Tacoma Art Museum

Prints are not what they used to be. Not that artists do not still make etchings, lithographs and silkscreen prints, but what they do with these and other print media - often in inventive and never-before-thought-of combinations and employing new digital technologies - can be like nothing ever before seen.
