I believe it was Coco Chanel who said, “Trends come and go but style is forever.” At least it was something along those lines. Eric Beckemeier knows style. He struts his stuff in his classic look amongst the stacks of countless CDs and DVDs at his work — Buzzards CDs

I feel fortunate to live in Tacoma during the holidays. I begin to feel generous, and eager to share the tiny pieces of Tacoma’s richness with my distant friends. Specifically, I share candy richness from local Brown & Haley outlet stores.   Almond Roca is made right here in downtown T-town at

Portraits and interiors

Two very different women artists fill the art gallery at South Puget Sound Community College with images of many more women — plus a couple of boats and families and urban life. Gail Ramsey Wharton does fascinating acrylic, collage and charcoal portraits and interiors that seem to be a strange marriage

Aladdin performs magic

Going to see Aladdin was tough for me. I took my daughter and toddler son because my marriage had fallen apart, and her family had come to town to give my future ex-wife some support. She later filed the divorce paperwork, two days before my birthday. A 10-year marriage was

Winter wake up

I’m wrestling with how to describe The Christmas Revels, which is usually a good sign. I like art that can’t be easily filed. Part live theater, part cultural showcase, part seasonal celebration, part music and madness, and part dance-a-thon, this year’s Christmas Revels will take onlookers on a journey to

Giving the stink eye

Remember that old phrase “service with a smile”? Last Saturday you could forget the smile, just give me some damn service! In this day and age it still boggles my mind why restaurant service can be so horrible with no reason. I get it if a restaurant is swamped with

Hamburger helper

Weekly Volcano headquarters received a call two weeks ago from the Food Network in New York City — apparently the big city foodies want to explore hamburger dives in the Northwest (stay tuned to your television). I compiled a list for them of my favorite burger joints in the South

“Every album I have put out has at least two songs that describe Three’s Company episodes,” explains, in all seriousness, Peter Tjetjan — the brainchild of Tacoma’s most unique and under-appreciated band, Umber Sleeping. “For instance, the last track on Music from "Science Film," our latest, yet-to-be-released album, is titled
