Deadpan diversions

It's funny, the disconnect that happens in the time it takes for a band to record an album, and for a music critic to listen to it. So much of the time, the critic will struggle for words, and resort to some description along the lines of, "This band is

Funny from start to finish

Clockwork at Olympia Little Theatre is ridiculously funny. Written by Pat Cook and directed by Robert McConkey, with a huge cast including some of Olympia's best, it is a hilarious marriage of Agatha Christie, Larry Shue and Hee Haw. The Dunwoody clan is the kind of huge family one might expect

Three Easy Pieces

Welcome to Three Easy Pieces, where I explore a witheringly specific area of pop culture from its birth to how it exists today. This month, I'm thinking of A Star Is Born. Hollywood likes to remake it roughly once every generation, dating back to the 1937 original. Though the story's about

Shaking it off

So much of rock and roll boils down to one simple goal: shaking off the oppressive stress and browbeating aggressors of everyday life. If you make it through the exhausting marathon that makes up just one average, unremarkable weekday in this life of ours, you're afforded the opportunity to frantically

Yohen takes its time revealing exactly what's going on with its two characters, James (Malcolm J. West) and Sumi (Aya Hashiguchi). While they speak as though they've known each other for many years, there's a hesitance to their interactions, a kind of nervous energy that feels slightly off. It takes until

Even grown-ups love wearing costumes for Halloween -- the more provocative the better. At Olympia Film Society's (OFS) Capitol Theater, that cosplay rocks. Each year since 2003, OFS has presented a parade of musicians who dress and perform as idols of the past. Last year's mistress of ceremonies, "Vanessa the

Chasing terror

It's a never-ending source of fascination, to me, that people so frequently volunteer to be horrified. With a world so chock-full of real, readily accessible terror, how odd and endearing is it that people line up to pay money for the privilege of having of the wits scared out of

Halloween-y treats
