A night of games, food and new friends

Most of us know this situation all too well: spending another holiday alone because our soldier is away for training, duty, or deployment.

A story with a capacious heart

Flora & Ulysses, based on the children's book of the same name by Kate DiCamillo, is a children's story that appeals to people of all ages.

Galentine’s Day

Galentine's Day is a fairly new phenomena and proves the power of pop culture. Media is a powerful tool in manipulating our everyday lives. Remember when everyone was getting "the Rachel" -- that well coifed, medium length shag hairdo that took the world by storm? What about popular phrases like:

Glimpses of bigger stories

Every so often, out of fascination and sadness, I take another look at the career of poor Nick Drake. The English singer-songwriter managed to release just three albums before his untimely death at the age of 26. His first, the lovely and achingly poetic Five Leaves Left, seems like exactly

Revisiting Tacoma Art Museum

After visiting the new Benaroya Wing at Tacoma Art Museum for the second time, I wandered through the other galleries, which featured shows I had previously reviewed, and was delighted to see how much I enjoyed revisiting these shows.

Popcorn Bowl

The Big Game is just around the corner. With that in mind, we've put together a 16-movie bracket for the Popcorn Bowl -- my ranking of the best football films of all time. The brackets have been divided into Pro and Amateur, i.e., films about professional players and teams, and films about

Keep JBLM’s water clean

An average of 2.25 million gallons of wastewater flows through Joint Base Lewis-McChord's sewers each day -- up to one billion gallons per year. Do you ever wonder where the water goes after you flush the toilet? It flows to the JBLM Wastewater Treatment Plant, then to the Puget Sound. It

Heartache on tape

In the history of rock music, there exists a certain specific oddity that -- while it doesn't happen very frequently -- is always fascinating to encounter: the meta breakup album being recorded about the breakup that is currently happening between members of the band. Broken hearts, love triangles, high drama

Silent Salinity: after the dig

Hanging by the entrance to 950 Gallery is a work of art by Mary Coss that appears to be a jumble of words shaped from bent wire and suspended inside what looks like an old window frame. The words, mostly jumbled and unreadable, hang an inch or so in front

A cold wave of anxiety

Henrik Ibsen's famous and much-examined A Doll's House is a play that announces itself as being about one conflict, but eventually reveals itself to be about something far larger in scope.

We'll state this up front: Benjamin Britten's English-language opera The Rape of Lucretia is about the circumstances preceding and consequences resulting from an act of sexual assault. For that reason it's been a focus of debate since its 1946 premiere. Director Linda Kitchen of Tacoma Opera took the show on
