Republican party slips in favor with troops

As caucuses and primaries close, the race for the next President begins to heat up. Media coverage delves into each candidate's past, and voting history pollsters have begun to do the same with constituents. First Command Financial Services recently released the results of its latest poll of middle-class military voters, and

The towering monolith of Black Sabbath

Some bands are so distinctive and influential that to describe them would be redundant. These are artists who've risen to such a level that their names are used to describe other artists. Chuck Berry, the Beatles, the Sex Pistols, the Talking Heads - these are not simply musical acts, but

Test your car racing skills

There are exciting sights - the Daytona International Raceway as competitors whiz by at 200 mph. There are booming sounds - the noise of big engines as the race cars zoom along. And at the finish, there's either the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat. These are the sensations, the excitement,

A deeper vision

According to optometrist and visual injury specialist Dr. Thomas Politzer, "Eighty to eighty-five percent of our perception, learning, cognition and activities are mediated through vision." What we think, in other words, is defined largely by what we've seen. Vision is a marvelous gift, but it can inspire and enable some

Hypnotic fireworks

Last year, Matt Berninger of the National and Brent Knopf of Menomena teamed up for an unlikely side project called El Vy. While the National's stately, mature indie rock might not seem like it would mix easily with Menomena's fractured experimentalism, the resultant product brought out new sides to each

Surprising 3-D show

Winter Pop-Up at B2 Fine Art Gallery is a surprisingly rich collection of sculpture, basketry and pottery by (mostly) artists who are new to the Tacoma art scene - the one exception being longtime local favorite Ric Hall, who is showing a totally new work never before seen and a

Ring of Fire at Centerstage

Ring of Fire at Centerstage in Federal Way is wonderful entertainment, well worth the drive. Adapted from the Broadway Production by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Jason Edwards, it is a hybrid falling somewhere between a play and a musical revue. It tells the life story of Johnny Cash through his

Fire up the pizza

Announcer: Elemental Pizza branched out of Seattle and opened its first South Sound location this past Fall, bringing more wood-fired pizza to the area but with a more gritty, industrial, Tacomaness feel about it. It fits here aesthetically. Located along Pacific Avenue among the University of Washington-Tacoma complex in the

Nothing says Valentine's Day like a musical

Like fine wine paired with rich chocolate or imported cheese, dinner and a show is an undeniably palatable combination that pairs well with romantic occasions such as Valentine's Day. Fortunately for all, the South Sound region is filled with playhouses and theaters, as well as restaurants of every stripe. The

Run Ranger Run now in full swing

On the back of Marcus Domingue's shirt appeared the sentence, "I shall either find a way or make one." The sentence suits him in that the Latin word "inveniam" means to find a way, and it happens to be the name of his business, Inveniam Athletics. "I have a soft spot for

Tragedy into triumph

It's not uncommon for a young boy to dream of defying the odds - reaching that special pinnacle - be it finding a rare four-leaf clover in a field of green or entering the Baseball Hall of Fame, the only pitcher to retire with a 1.79 earned run average. Jacob Wald

A cupcake love story

Gabriel Rutledge in Olympia

You would think it would be tough for a guy doing 200-plus comedy shows a year to be much of a family man, but even though he bills himself as a professional comedian and an amateur husband and father, Olympia's Gabriel Rutledge makes it work. And for him, it's a

Art, science and adaptation

Lisa Kinoshita curates art exhibits in fantastic venues and presents the work in such a manner that it blends in with, becomes a part of, and enhances what is already there. She did it beautifully at the Seaport Museum last summer and has now done it again at the W.W.

Circle Mirror Transformation

And now for something completely and delightfully different - Circle Mirror Transformation at Olympia Little Theatre, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker and winner of the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play.

Sincerity and frivolity

I've spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about a trend among bands that emulate the sounds of ‘60s and ‘70s garage-pop: for whatever reason, a relatively significant number of these bands end up covering "Hang On Sloopy" by the McCoys at some point in their careers. If I were

Community partnerships are just as important to the Washington National Guard as they are to the active-duty military.
