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

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.

Go Latin

It’s a Thursday night — ladies night — at Cans in downtown Tacoma, and everyone is ramping up for the disc jockey to take the stage. He arrives at around 9:30 p.m. to set up, and it doesn’t take long for the dance floor to start filling up. Pedro Lopez
