In good company

If you can’t think of three more endearing recent family movies than “My Dog Skip,” “Babe” and “Millions,” then here’s another title to add to the list.  “The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep” is based on a book by the author of “Babe,” made by the director of “My

Danette Dye

’Twas a few evenings before Christmas and all through the city, everyone yearned for a Lavender L’mour and a ditty. The spicy fried calamari from Matador was devoured with nary a care, and the Monsoon Room’s vibe beckoned us, which isn’t that rare. Children tucked in, dreaming of loot, and

Fashion 2008

This last year in fashion has seen some interesting things, both on the runway and in our own neck of the woods. In my opinion, as far as fashion goes, local designers Lisa Fruciante, Daniel Blue, Jooley Heaps, Marilyn LoSavio, and many, many others are “where it’s at.” Even if

In the bag

Annette B My trip to Hawaii was imminent. I needed a bathing suit cover but didn’t want the traditional generic wrap-style sarongs that Target and other mainstream stores sell. Annette B clothing boutique offers hip clothes for full-figured women, those expecting a baby and those who have just had one. Since

Roger Ebert's Top 10 films of 2007

It was a time of wonders, an autumn of miracles, one of the best years in recent movie history. One great film after another opened, and movie lovers found there were two or three, sometimes more, must-see films opening on a weekend. I gave up rationing my four-star ratings and

Many long, glorious climaxes

Thank god Christmas is over. Bobble Tiki barely escaped the fiasco with the Hawaiian shirt on his back and the maxed-out Visa in his wallet. As if the financial implications of celebrating teeny, tiny baby Jesus’ birthday the American way weren’t bad enough, Bobble Tiki was forced to endure two

2008

Getting mentioned in a high profile, well-regarded national magazine throughout the year is nothing to scoff at. Being mentioned twice in the 100 Tastes to Try in 2008 January issue is quite impressive. Our sister city to the north has achieved just that in Food & Wine. Josh Henderson created

I was freakin' jolly

Sure, by the time you read this, Christmas will officially be over, but this season is continuing to be jolly for everyone’s favorite Carmen. I made a conscious decision to not attend the Swiss Christmas party because it happened on a Sunday, and I had consumed too many drinks the night

Happy New Year's Eve

We at the Weekly Volcano really do care. Last week, the astute Matt Driscoll was rapping about some safe driving tips for New Year’s Eve. I’m going to take that a step further. In my column, you’ll find so much of what you need to survive your entire New Year’s Eve night, completely

Capt. Dale rushes to greet guests

As you enter Tacoma’s former Sheraton Hotel, now Hotel Murano on Broadway, Bell Captain Dale Rush’s smiling face usually greets you. He’s a 61-year-old who not only enjoys life, his job and Tacoma, but every hotel visitor. “What I like most about my job is seeing the new faces that

My favorite albums of 2007

I noticed recently that the Internet, music festivals, movies, television shows and even commercials have replaced radio as the place I find new music. Should I be embarrassed to say that I bought a song because I heard it on a commercial? In the past I think I would have

The gift of art

Christmas is not the best time for artists and art galleries. Nobody ever gives art for Christmas. They should, but they don’t. I, for one, would love to get a painting by Ron Hinson or Chauney Peck or one of Holly Senn’s sculptures made from old books. But most people

Gift of Music

PBS, pay attention. This is how you do a fundraiser. The Gift of Music doesn’t do the pledge and tote bag thing; they just throw a great party where attendees have a blast and give free musical instruments to talented children. The Emanuel Church Ensemble, Darren Motamedy, Michael Powers and

No argument here

“The Great Debaters” is about an underdog debate team that wins a national championship, and some critics have complained that it follows the formula of all sports movies by leading up, through great adversity, to a victory at the end.  So it does.  How many sports movies, or movies about

So clutch

Now that the excruciating holiday events have transpired and your bank account has regained consciousness, it’s time to splurge on yourself a bit. This winter, fashion is all about ridding ourselves of the redundant trends of seasons past. I’m still suffering severely from skinny pants overload, but even worse are

The Drug Purse

Some holidays have a higher purpose. Thanksgiving, yes; Memorial Day, yes; Christmas, yes. These days are supposed to inspire some sort of personal reflection or appreciation or spirit of giving or love of mankind. Then there are the holidays that are just for the hell of it. New Year’s Eve

Atomic Housewives, .38 special and more

Saturday, Dec. 29 BLUES john nemeth, junior watson Two headliners are sliding into Jazzbones to quench your post-Christmas blues thirst. John Nemeth, white, sounds black, and I don’t believe he’s trying. Entrenched in tradition, the Boise native plays in the fashion of old-school blues, R&B and soul singers of the ’50s and ’60s.
