Theater Review: "The Farnsworth Invention"

I've been following the work of Aaron Sorkin since the days of the short-lived TV show Sports Night. I've observed that there are a few things Sorkin clearly loves more than anything else: space travel, talking while walking, stealing his own lines and Philo T. Farnsworth. I've also known John Munn

Kali Kucera’s Papakali tells the tales of Tacoma

Crime-fighting vampire cats and old men holding sunflowers that never die are taking over Tacoma. Online anyway. Local creative extraordinaire Kali Kucera is a music composer. He also helped to found the Tacoma Poet Laureate program, and is the arts development guy at Urban Grace Church. Kucera has told stories at libraries

"Hide/Seek" at Tacoma Art Museum offers difference and desire

The internationally-acclaimed exhibition Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture caused a ruckus when it debuted at The Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery in 2010. David Wojnarowicz's unfinished film, A Fire in My Belly, was removed from the exhibition, sparking a national controversy, demonstrations and renewed discussions about censorship and artists' rights.

WHAT'S THE WORD?: Listening in on Tac Army Radio

As far as I know there is only one radio station playing nothing but Pacific Northwest hip-hop 24/7/365. I'm talking about tacarmyradio.com. The station is run by I-Ballz, who is a member of Blue Nose Music. I-Ballz is very open to supporting all local talent, so hit him up if

Jacob Gosselin’s Piko Panda one of three singer-songwriters to bare it all Saturday at Tahoma Tea and Co.

One of the purest expressions of self comes with the stripping down of sound to just one man and one guitar. The singer-songwriter is left with nowhere to hide. Think of Nick Drake's heartbreaking swan song, Pink Moon. After two lush, gorgeous records of folk pop went unnoticed, Drake appeared

Ariana Throne's "Collision" at The Evergreen State College

If you've been out of college for a while, you're probably unfamiliar with the phrase "rape culture." It's a feminist term, circa 1975, which classifies entire regions as supportive of sexual violence. Such a culture considers women public sexual utilities, then blames victims of whatever abuse is inevitably suffered. In
