Beauty in imperfection

Yohen takes its time revealing exactly what's going on with its two characters, James (Malcolm J. West) and Sumi (Aya Hashiguchi).

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

I think of Halloween as a type of training. Your body needs to be eased into the season of eating. To amp up for all the holiday parties, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, a month-long pumpkin spice indulgence with a finale of candy corn gorgefest is the best sort of

A bewitching love story for Halloween

Bell, Book and Candle is probably best remembered from the 1958 romantic comedy starring Kim Novak, James Stewart and Jack Lemon, adapted from the Broadway play by John Van Druten. Set in Greenwich Village during the Christmas season, it is the love story of Gillian Holroyd (Novak in the film),

Sixteen candles

It's a curious trait we have of striving to summarize eras in easily quantifiable terms, regardless of whether or not those designations hold up to scrutiny. An easy place to look for this behavior is in the repeated, exhausting attempts to define generations -- what it means to be a

Variations on a theme

The Abstract Expressionist painter Adolph Gottlieb is most famous for his many variations on a single image: a nebulous circular form floating above a rough burst of energetic paint. The similarities between Gottlieb's "Burst" paintings and Olympia painter Becky Knold's paintings at the Washington State Department of Ecology are undeniable.

Being frugal can be a good trait, it helps you save money for life's necessities, or if you're lucky you can tuck dollars away into savings for retirement or ... I dunno, whatever savings goes towards. Knowing when to treat yo'self is also a positive trait. Self-care is good for

I know, I know, it's barely Halloween and I'm all in. It's time for pumpkin spice everything that will soon segue to Egg Nog obsession and forced family meals slathered in gravy and tryptophan. Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though, let's talk gumbo, pumpkin brews and chef appearances. I love

Son of the Velvet Rat

In radio pop, there's frequently an atmosphere of worshipping the young and pristine, and eschewing the unique and experienced. Talent shows like American Idol and The Voice rendered this subtext overt, sacrificing cherubic, would-be stars week after week, before arriving at one performer to be fed into the music industry's churning machine.

Dry Powder is billed as a comedy, and yes, there is a lot of humor in this tale of high-finance shenanigans. But there's a lot of searing drama as well, as Jenny (the versatile Helen Harvester), Jeff (the comedic Ryan Holmberg), Seth (film actor Brian S. Lewis) and Rick (South
