Visual Edge: The good and bad of the The Plinth Project in Olympia

The Plinth Project down at Percival Landing in Olympia is a fabulous idea that so far has never quite panned out as I had hoped it would - although hope remains, as witnessed by the finer pieces in this year's crop of 13 sculptures. When they rebuilt the boardwalk downtown, the

"Boyhood": An eerily realist journey down the road to manhood

Richard Linklater spent 12 years making this week's movie. He filmed a small piece of the film each year to allow the cast to age naturally onscreen. He isn't the first director to do something like this. In 1994, Danish director Lars von Trier started filming Dimension, shooting a three-minute

Seven things happening in restaurants today

Enough with the praise, it's time for some tough love. Today, I feel like bitching and you're the only one who's paying attention to me right now, so you're going to get an earful. Or an eyeful. Whatever. I could give a shit if they fire me from the Weekly Volcano.
