'Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul.'

One of the common threads running through the best mockumentaries, from Rob Reiner's 1984 classic This Is Spinal Tap through the catalog of affectionately prodding Christopher Guest films such as Best in Show (2000), A Mighty Wind (2003) and Mascots (2016), and even the inspired lunacy of Sacha Baron Cohen's

Adrian's legacy

Club Adrian is what you might call the underdog of the Tacoma underage music scene — not quite as hip as Viaduct nor as publicized as Club Impact, but none the less frequented in droves by scenesters of the local all-ages music scene. I’ve often heard rumors of its existence,

Shopping for sex day

What I blew my paycheck on this week. Lover’s Package Plain and simple, I think Valentine’s Day blows. It’s just another holiday pushed by the greeting card companies, the chocolate factories, florists and every restaurant around (does anyone really need an excuse to go out to eat?) via every media outlet known

One ringy, dingy

 I have just about had it with cell phones. Don’t get me wrong. They are very valuable for a myriad of reasons, but they are starting to really annoy me. Strike that. It is not the cell phones, it is the stupid people that let them rule their lives. Recently,

The Magnetic Fields

Stephin Merritt records under many monikers, but The Magnetic Fields are arguably his most popular project. Merritt tends to create unique themes that run along perfectly with an album’s title. The 1999 box set 69 had 69 love songs, and the 2004 release I contained all tracks that began with

As you’ve probably noticed, the Weekly Volcano is a bit different this week. The paper is bigger, sexier, and better — and this is what you can expect from here on out. In the past the Weekly Volcano has been cool. Now the Weekly Volcano is super cool. Bobble Tiki knows

Red legs, blue legs

You’ve worked hard on those lean legs all year long, so why cover them up during winter? Tights and leggings are a great way to show off your stems during the frigid months, but not just any ol’ pair will do. While shamelessly Internet shopping last weekend, I came across what

Valentine’s Day isn’t just a Hallmark Holiday (though the card companies do make a killing). Whether you’ve been together two months or 20 years, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to reconnect with that special someone in your life, and what better way to celebrate the day of love than to

Take a trip to Hawaii

Café Hawaii As I turned into the strip mall housing Café Hawaii, I caught myself muttering almost desperately, “Please let it be good.” The small café was overly bright with a television blaring; an uncomfortable combination that urged me to get a to-go order and get the hell out of there.

Home Plate Tavern

Let’s stop pretending you don’t want to know what’s inside Home Plate Tavern. You pass by it on a regular basis as you drive down South Sprague Avenue. The sign catches your eye, but you’re too scared. Is it the neighborhood? Is it that there’s nowhere to park? Is it
