Saturday, June 14: Masterworks Sings Sinatra

Frank Sinatra always swung in his own fawning way - he would never have made it with bands such as Dorsey's or Harry James' if he hadn't. He frequently improvised, both music and words. Musically it was essentially embellishing the line with a few notes or a phrase, always right

Friday, June 13-Saturday, June 14: "Morgan Picton's Top Turnbuckle"

Olympia actor Morgan Picton has an easy, authoritative knack for comic timing, which made sense given his night job as a standup comedian. We saw him riffed on economics and ancient Rome for a dozen people, killing with insights that were probably too smart for most rooms, including that one.

Through June 22: "Moonlight and Magnolias"

A lot of folks still consider the 1939 film Gone With the Wind to be the best loved and most iconic American movie of all time - a classic national story of struggle and perseverance. Others might call it an American icon for less flattering reasons, i.e., how blithely it

"Words and Pictures" (and also Sound and Popcorn)

A picture's worth a thousand words, or so the old adage goes; but who's to say, really? Maybe back in the Stone Age - when words were little more than inarticulate grunts and "Yabba Dabba Do!" - Og's cave paintings really were worth a thousand words as they were the

The Gypsters deliver clever lyrics with musical squalls

I remember the first time I was exposed to the music of Shel Silverstein. This sort of raucous, barrelhouse rock coming from the beloved children's poet of my youth - it was eye-opening, to say the least. It was this crazy secret that my dad must have been giddy from

Gracious Grassi's

Do you ever wish you could go back to your childhood and get a "do-over"?  When I replay past events in my head, I often feel both regret and pride in the same emotion.  I am proud that seventh-grade Stephanie punched eighth-grade bully Heather in the stomach at the bus stop

Project Wedge: From tablet to projection in an instant

The last time I wrote about Mark Rentfrow was because he played Porl Thompson in a Cure cover band. This time I'm writing about him because he and his comrades have come up with a cure - for how to display content from your tablet device. The product is Project Wedge. The

JBLM Bettie Brigade Spotlight: Sgt. Severe

For military spouse and Lakewood resident Abigail Rael (aka "Sgt. Severe"), it's about roller derby love in every sense of the word. Rael skates for the spirited Joint Base Lewis-McChord Bettie Brigade, an all-female, player-run, flat-track roller derby league and nonprofit organization, which is comprised of women directly from the military

Tuesday, June 17: The Electric Magpie

If I asked you to guess what type of music The Electric Magpie make, no points for saying "neo-psychedelia." Still, The Electric Magpie go a bit of a way in terms of exploring the less explored corners of those '60s nuggets. Dashes of Canned Heat peak out from underneath the

Tuesday, June 17: The Gypsters

The Gypsters is a band that, whether or not they intended it, reminded me of bands like Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show and the Fugs, even though they stylistically don't quite connect. Like the aforementioned bands, the Gypsters are serious about making music, but their songs sometimes lend themselves
