A visit to the tip of the Olympic Peninsula

Heading out to Neah Bay and Cape Flattery is a doable day trip from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, but it is a long one at almost four hours each way. Spending the night on the Olympic Peninsula when it isn't daylight savings time is advisable, as it gets dark so early now.

After viewing Jeff Olson's exhibition, Making my Mark at Tacoma Community College, I visited his web site out of curiosity and discovered statements from the artist that seem at odds with what I observed in his exhibition. Olson stated, "My paintings offer a unique vision of the landscape and the

Until I saw Dukesbay Theater's production of Proof, my only exposure to the play was its 2005 film adaptation. While the film had its admirers, it never clicked for me; I suspected that this material was ill-suited to making the jump to the big screen, a theory that was supported

Highway to the Splatter Zone

The Evil Dead trilogy -- featuring, of course, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness -- became something of an unlikely success, creating an all-time great cult horror franchise, and ushering in the career of the great director Sam Raimi. I say that this was somewhat unlikely
