It is never a good thing when a rock star’s publicist is blowing up your phone in an earnest tone, “John’s been waiting for like a half an hour, and he’s saying ‘Where is this guy?!’” I’m sorry, Judy (the publicist); I have been really working on my punctuality! Of course, leave it to me to have a legendary rock star wait for me. For a hot second I thought I blew the interview.

A Burlesque Alice in Wonderland
Under the direction of co-producer Lily Verlaine’s artistic direction, each performer tantalized our imaginations and senses to join them in a celebration of the human body, boys included.

This past November, Washington voters made national headlines and history by approving Initiative 502, the legalization of recreational marijuana. A few weeks back, I began to notice that Capitol Hill light poles were tagged with flyers calling Capitol Hillites to join the “Cannabis Freedom March,” which was held this past Saturday, starting in Volunteer Park, and eventually making their way down, one puff at a time, to Westlake. My initial reaction to the flyer was more of an internal dialogue—“Why are we marching for cannabis freedom? Didn’t we already vote on this?” I needed some answers as to what “freedoms” marijuana supporters were peacefully rallying for. -Kimball Allen, The Capitol Hill Times
Capitol Hill athlete heading towards Olympic Gold
My love affair with USA Boxing’s newest women’s National Champion and
Seattle-local, Jen Hamann, really began a few weeks back. I give all of the
credit to a “make mozzarella at home” starter kit. You see, my boyfriend
purchased this cheese kit off of a website called “Kickstarter,” which he’s
addicted to. If you are living under a Capitol Hill rock, or are too hungover to
crawl out of bed, and know nothing of this genius online community that supports cool projects, then stop reading and search engine it now (after you do so, youmay continue reading).

Jeremy was far from the baller style porn star that I expected him to be. In fact, he was unbelievably cordial, somewhat soft spoken, and he emitted an aroma that reminded me of my grandfather.

If you could have either a piece of paper or a bare booby signed by a famous porn star in a local bar, which should you choose? The answer is obvious. It was extremely obvious to Kimball here (pictured) and myself, who both got inked by Ron Jeremy. The Hedgehog was at Linda’s promoting his new spiced rum on Friday night and I think the rum was a success. There was definitely a booby or two, of both boy and girl varieties, flying around in Jeremy’s honor.
-Kelly O, “The Stranger”
But if you look deeper you find a once troubled young man who laced his life with drugs and a painful past that he records in his new solo show “Secrets Of A Gay Mormon Felon.” He describes his epic journey as a look to a time where he was at “the bottom of the barrel” & “numb.” His life seemed to be spiraling out of control, and it was incarcerated that Kimball found a voice.
