Full Immersion

For a lot of us, when we're young, I think it's a fairly common experience to absorb music in a very surface-level way. Your parents play you songs, which tend to be upbeat and inoffensive, and you latch on to certain sentimental songs, but the notion of music achieving a

Three Easy Pieces

Welcome, once again, to Three Easy Pieces, where I examine a specific subsection of pop culture from its birth, to how it exists today. This month, I'm thinking about comic book adaptations for adults. The subgenre experienced its biggest heyday in the ‘90s and early ‘00s, but with Deadpool and Logan showing that there's

Put one way, this summer marks the 60th birthday of one of the South Sound's most legendary residents. Put another way, this mythic figure spans millennia. Indigenous tribes of the Pacific Northwest told tales of wild men in the woods, from the Lummi Ts'emekwes to the Chinookan people's mountain skookums

Nerd-rock nirvana

By the late 1970s, thanks to American Graffiti, Grease, Happy Days and the televised doo-wop of Sha Na Na, nostalgia for the 1950s had bloomed in pop culture. As any Beatlemaniac, Deadhead or Trekker can tell you, idolatry for the '60s and ‘70s never waned. If anything, then, 1980s revivalism
