"A Hard Day's Night": Still working like a dog 50 years later

I was born in 1983, so I'm a bit young to remember "Beatlemania". My first exposure to the Beatles was probably Ringo Starr's role as the best Mr. Conductor Shining Time Station ever had or his guest spot on the second season of The Simpsons. It wasn't until I was

Through Aug. 22: "Mining The Ego"

Sunday, July 13: The Riffbrokers

I'll never forget how excited I was when I heard the Riffbrokers, something like four years ago. Singer-songwriter Nick Millward achieved all of the requirements of my simple, music-loving mind. With a voice that resembles a more nimble version of Elvis Costello's nasal croon, Millward drew me in, sonically, before I

Friday, July 11: Charts

On their recent EP, Vacation, Charts burst out of the gate with skittering drums and bright guitars on "Settling Down." The Portland band makes a bold statement, practically daring you not to blast their music out of the open window of your crummy car. This is driving music, first and

Friday, July 11: Sarchasm

One of the more intriguing aspects of our prolonged exposure to intense music snobbery is the eventual caving of critics and admitting support of more maligned subgenres. Pop-punk's return to acceptable regions of taste for folks that would have previously turned up their noses at Blink-182, in particular, has been

Friday, July 11: Dudley Taft

Dudley Taft may well be the best white, Cincinnati-based blues artist you've never heard of, despite the fact that he toured with Seattle's own Alice in Chains and Candlebox. But wait, you say, Alice in Chains and Candlebox aren't blues bands. You're right! Now wipe that smug look off your

Jonathan Wagner named VA 2014 Member of the Year

It takes one to know one, and for Jonathan Wagner, the Veteran Navigator at Clover Park Technical College, that familiarity has led to his success guiding and providing support for veteran students. "I go the extra step because I see the need and that's why I get results," said Wagner, who

Officer Candidate School remains at Camp Murray

While the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) Leadership Training Course has moved from Joint Base Lewis-McChord to Ft. Knox, the training for the National Guard's Officer Candidate School (OCS) will still be conducted here. For many years, the OCS and ROTC programs were run concurrently since

Being military you always have to travel to see family and the friends you've left scattered across duty stations - which often means you're on the frequent flyer list toting lots of luggage. On one such recent trip, my husband and I were hurrying to reach the airport and my jewelry

Theater Review: "Young Frankenstein" follows in their granfadda's vootshtops

Mel Brooks' 1974 parody Young Frankenstein is one of the funniest, most quotable movies ever made. And some funny movies, including Brooks' own The Producers, make for entertaining stage musicals. At a lean 106 minutes, Young Frankenstein must've seemed tailor-made for expansion into a song-and-dance extravaganza; but at 2:20 plus

Visual Edge: Flower paintings by Susan Christian

Artist and gallery owner Susan Christian worried that it might not be kosher to exhibit her own paintings at her own gallery, Salon Refu, but many friends coaxed her into it so she set up a show of her own paintings - not her most recent work but some odd

Tuesday, July 22: Movie Mashup: Wild Literary Adaptations On Film With Robert Horton

The entertainment industry, with its long-established allergy to new ideas, often mines the bestseller list for source material. Studios are more likely to greenlight a story after it has been officially vetted by the reading public. They're also less likely to interfere with a proven earner, which is why the
