Viva Mexico!

Viva Mexico!

I've seen at least eight Cirque du Soleil productions, most recently the Avatar-themed Toruk in Portland, Oregon. It played like an ultra-high-tech riff on Walking With Dinosaurs, so it wasn't what I've come to adore about Cirque du Soleil - I like my Cirque mostly human-powered. Minutes into Luzia, however,

Cheers to beers

Passion: Strong and barely controllable emotion, or an intense desire or enthusiasm for something. Something just popped in your head, didn't it? It was something that defined this word for you. Maybe it was that ‘72 Chevelle SS that's sitting in your garage waiting for that 454 motor. It might

Post-Wobegon days

"Well, it's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, Minnesota ..." With those familiar words, listeners to A Prairie Home Companion on National Public Radio have delighted for decades to the small-town shenanigans related by master writer and storyteller Gary "Garrison" Keillor. Keillor hosted the show from 1974, when it

ANNOUNCER:  With Jason off on vacation, he has left Jake all on his own for the next few weeks. It's no surprise that Jake went where there was beer and cheap eats; in this case, The Red Hot on 6th Ave in Tacoma for those 21 and over. JAKE:  There's absolutely

All the way from Berlin, Germany, comes multi-dimensional artist Isabelle Gresser with a multi-media installation on the theme of pine trees, humanity, and international cultures.

Gray Sky Blues Music Festival

The Pacific Northwest is, justifiably, known for its share of iconic things: copious amounts of rain, grunge, garage rock, a steady stream of alcohol consumption, and an uneasy mix of socially conscious hipsters and stoic, rustic types. What doesn't get much play is the Pacific Northwest's relationship with blues music,

Profoundly mundane

When the Talking Heads decided to title their second full-length album More Songs About Buildings and Food, there's no question that they were making a self-deprecating joke about the oddly impersonal nature of their songs. I think if you talked to David Byrne, though, he'd say that there's nothing more personal

A history of healing

The Madigan Army Medical Center just celebrated its 25th anniversary. A lot of history stands behind that celebration. Army Medicine walked in the main gate in 1917 with the construction of Camp Lewis. By the time the camp was renamed Fort Lewis in 1927, there were four dispensaries, which comprised the Fort

Holistic recovery tools offered at Madigan

Brain injuries don’t happen in isolation. They often come along with chronic pain, or long-impacting injuries or behavioral health concerns like post-traumatic stress. After all, whatever caused the brain injury — an explosion, a vehicle accident, a fall — also affects the rest of the person. These

Standing up to abuse

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the military. "Domestic abuse is a social problem," said Hope Perini, lead victim advocate at JBLM's Family Advocacy Program (FAP).

San Diego getaway

An epic anniversary

A trip to the movies can seem like a fairly impersonal experience in 2017. We book our tickets on Fandango, carefully boxing out other pretenders to our favorite throne, the center seat right behind the aisle so our upcharged, 3-D glasses (recycled for "the environment" - riiiiight) give us the
