Peelander-Z lands in T-town

Too Slim and the Taildraggers

Too Slim and the Taildraggers call Seattle home these days, at least according to their Web site (www.tooslim.org) but that doesn’t mean the band’s Spokane roots aren’t as blaring as ever. Spokane is where Too Slim originated, and the city was obviously the perfect breeding ground for the band’s vision

For those who like to rock

Hell’s Belles has been around for a while now. Their all-female tribute to AC/DC is nothing new. There’s a good chance you’ve seen them, and there’s a good chance you’ve read about them before in the Weekly Volcano. Bobble Tiki doesn’t care. It’s true, Hell’s Belles has been doing the same

Finding treasure

Trash to Treasure It has to be completely obvious by now that I have a pretty strident aversion to new mass manufactured products. I think they’re soulless. I much prefer things with history and buying as close to home as possible. I want my money to stay just as close circulating

Fashion is such a broad topic. There are clothing fashions, jewelry fashions, shoe, home décor, hats, bags and makeup fashions. Trends come, trends go (some trends we couldn’t wait to see go … Spandex bike shorts with oversized T-shirts, anyone?). There’s one hot lady in town who seems to always

I Love Bento sake

It’s bad enough when a few members of the League of Liberal Libations get together — fewer than five representatives is known as a “disconcerting” — but when you have the executive council and potential members, things quickly get out of hand. This is known as a “catastrophe.” By the

Bound orgies

Healthy kicks

I’m always looking for active pursuits that will up my endorphins, lower my body fat, and make my heart sing. I find myself returning to running because it’s quick and effective. But dang, does it get tedious at times. An online article gave me a nugget to ponder: “Soccer beats jogging for

Falling into food

Falling into food autumn crisp air brings my need to feed  / by sandee glib I don’t know about any of you, but autumn is my favorite season. There is no guessing when it happens around here; unlike summer, we all know it has arrived because it is so very obvious. The

St. Nicholas Greek Festival.

Just hand over the baklava and nobody gets hurt We love Tacoma’s Annual St. Nicholas Greek Festival. We love the group dancing, the fine food; hell, we even love yelling “Opa!” for no apparent reason. But let’s be real. For us, the entire festival is just a complicated set dressing for

The new aroma of Tacoma

Breathe in, Tacoma. Do you smell that? It smells an awful lot like happiness in a mouthful. It smells an awful lot like the kinds of sweet treats granny used to have waiting for you, the kinds of treats celebrations culminate in. It smells like the kind of treats that have a naughty,
