Sunday, Nov. 23: Alice Cooper

Long before Britney Spears draped a serpent awkwardly about her neck, Cooper was welcoming us to his nightmare by tossing a live chicken (not, as press reports claimed the next day, biting its head off),

Sunday, Nov. 23: Tacoma Symphony Orchestra

Saturday, Nov. 22: Judas Priest

Saturday, Nov. 22: Marty O'Reily and the Old Soul Orchestra

This is a huuuuuge week for live music in T-town, so when our esteemed editor insisted on squeezing in an obscure folk-and-blues band from Santa Cruz, I was intrigued. Then I listened to the album, and all became clear. Marty O'Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra is one hell of

A quick definition of letterpress printing: Sharp metal letters are pressed with great force into thick paper, resulting in three-dimensional relief type with touchable, handmade charm.

Close your eyes and imagine a world where children are encouraged to learn about science, instead of being chastised for participating in it. In this world, there are no "dorks," "geeks" or "dweebs," but a population of future doctors, engineers, manufacturers and geniuses with the education, brainpower and motivation to
