Black and white is in

What’s black, white and chic all over? Everything this season. The combo of black and white has been a fashion statement ever since the days of Coco Chanel and Elisa Schiaparelli, and it’s back for 2008. This trendy twosome was spotted all over the spring runways in bold silhouettes and

Kick the "Bucket List"

“The Bucket List” is a movie about two old codgers who are nothing like people, both suffering from cancer that is nothing like cancer, and setting off on adventures that are nothing like possible. I urgently advise hospitals: Do not make the DVD available to your patients; there may be

Keep trim at local restaurants

The New Year is here and yet we are still stuck with the same bodies we had last year. There is this dire need to renew and refresh. Eat healthy, workout, drink less, get more sleep, and it MUST begin January 1. But in reality, you were most likely hung

I just can't commit

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a complete commitment phob and that even applies to my skin. I have to let you cutting-edge readers down by saying that there’s not one tattoo that graces my entire body. That’s not because I frown upon tattoos. Oh no, I actually find them to

Time warp

As juried art shows go, the Third Annual Regional Juried Art Exhibit at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Art Center, South Puget Sound Community College, is not bad. There are some old friends as well as some excellent artists I’ve never before seen. There are a couple of sappy landscapes, a

January jollies

“urinetown” Time to go with the flow. Tacoma Musical Playhouse’s production of “Urinetown” is a cross between “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying,” “Logan’s Run” and a yeast infection.

Beyond the headlines

I had a bit of time on my hands over the holidays, so I found myself cruising through television station after station in search of something remotely interesting to watch. I often failed. But one time when I didn’t fail I had clicked over to expanded cable to see the

Drinking liberally, stress free drawing and more

Very personal orchestra

Andrew Buelow was happy living in Michigan, where he was the head honcho at the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. His family had a summer home in Traverse when he was growing up in Wisconsin, so he jumped at the chance to move there when the director position opened up at the

Dynamite Jacks' The I Hate Jill

After a year-and-a-half of commanding a corner of downtown DuPont as the Harbor Rock Bar & Grill, the owners decided to scrap the semi-successful venture, remodel it with mining items bought off eBay, and reopened two weeks ago as Dynamite Jacks. I dashed in from the rain last Friday night and
