Fall fun - offered locally

The heat of the summer is long gone and the crisp morning air of fall is upon us. It is that time of year when we put sweaters and jackets on to go strolling through the park to see the leaves on the trees start to change colors. Warm apple

The Head That Wouldn't Die! Redux

At the end of 2014, Theater Artists Olympia produced a musical comedy called The Head That Wouldn't Die! which was probably the biggest hit of the season if not the biggest hit of TAO's entire history. In my Dec. 9, 2014 review I wrote: Theater Artists Olympia's original musical The Head That

We know you don't give a tinker's toss about ballet. You're sitting there, sipping your latte, looking ahead to a series of beer flights and bearded folkie shows this weekend. That's fine. We like that stuff, too. What you may not know about Swan Lake, though, is this: it's a

'Art AIDS America' at Tacoma Art Museum

If I were allowed 6,000 words instead of 600, I probably still couldn't do this exhibition justice. The amazing thing about it is that it was locally curated, by Tacoma Art Museum's Rock Hushka with co-curator Jonathan David Katz from the University at Buffalo (New York). The exhibition is organized

Afrofuturist soul of Aeon Fux

Certain bands and artists come along that blow one's little, wannabe music-loving mind. Tom Waits did it for me when my dad showed me Big Time; St. Vincent threw me for a loop when I saw her video for "Marrow;" Prince challenged my sexuality the first time I heard "Darling

Sometimes a fantasy

Sometimes a fantasy

In musical jargon, a fantasia is a freestyle composition, arrived at by improvising. We know it better as the title of Walt Disney's 1940s collection of animated classical music videos. Disney's mesmerizing cartoon, recorded in and presented via way-ahead-of-its-time multitrack sound, was nevertheless a financial failure till 1969. (Audiences of

Five great places to watch something

Most of the time we spend our lives rushing between points A and B - running errands, getting to and from work, hurrying between appointments and friends and obligations. How often do you just stop and look at what's around you? Chances are you don't. And, really, not just anywhere

Remotely-controlled weapons systems have drastically reduced the number of soldiers needed for perimeter security at an expeditionary base camp here.

The Bettie Brigade turns 5

The house is new, in a cozy suburban neighborhood.  You know something is happening because there are quite a few cars in the driveway and along the street, and a sign on the door welcomes you in, suggesting you not ring the bell (the dogs will announce your arrival.) And

Get your hunt on - Zombie style

Halloween is closely approaching. The season of ghosts, ghouls, goblins and other frightening things. And what is one of the most frightening things? Zombies.  Maybe it's because they want to eat our flesh or maybe it's because if we get bit, we turn into one. Whatever the reason, zombies seem

A Walk in the Dark

People love to be scared. Countless dollars spent on horror films, and a societal obsession with The Walking Dead, are proof of that. But where locally can you get a fright for only $7? Thankfully, JBLM's annual Walk in the Dark at Shoreline Park will be open to the public starting
