Whether you like it or not, more than sound goes into making a successful rock band. It starts with the riffs, typically, but there’s a lot more to it. Image. Dreamy eyes. Politics. All of these can play a part in a band’s popularity or lack thereof. Plenty of rock bands

Bayou cooking class

Bayou Billy When Chef Billy Robertson talks about food and cooking, his smile gets as wide as the muddy Mississippi. Given what went down in his home state of Louisiana — it’s a wonder he’s able to smile at all. I smile every time I visit his Olympia restaurant Cicada. His inventive

Ask Amy Alkon

High waist

Victory is mine! I’ve waited years, and although it’s been a snaillike process, the thong baring, low riding pants have finally gone back to buttcrack hell where they belong. A few years ago the high waist reemerged, but it’s taken designers awhile to get it just right. For 2008, designers
