Go! Spotify Playlist, October 6: Mad World

“Black Sun” by Death Cab for Cutie: Say what you want about Death Cab and its frontman Ben Gibbard, but old Ben knows how to write a song real good. This one’s off the band’s new album released this year. Somehow a bit of the impetuous angst-ridden tone of 90s grunge finds voice in Gibbard’s music, but it’s understated and more sophisticated. Like Nirvana for grown ups. I’d recommend this band to a 15-year-old or a 50-year-old alike, it’s just plain good (and Gibbard’s from Bremerton too).

We live in this world of smartphones, self driving cars and selfie sticks — but many of us still enjoy the distinct feel of a newspaper, the look of pressed ink and the idea that the print world is still around.

When the paper isn’t always handy, our new Digital Edition will be readily available to take its place for anyone who has a print or online subscription.

Betsty Steele - Dog with Sunflower

Looking Out | Looking a sunflower in the face

These sunflowers are all volunteers. None of them sprouted from hand-planted seeds. Overfed finches dropped them as they scattered from our winter bird feeder. Or last year’s varieties, bent over and dragging at the end of summer, left some seeds on the ground, somehow avoiding nibbling by voles.

Go! Spotify Playlist - Sept. 29: Cover Me

“Bad Blood” by Ryan Adams: Ryan Adams recently released a track-for-track remake of Taylor Swift’s album “1989” and it’s been making quite the splash. Some say it’s brilliant, others deride it as nothing more than a publicity stunt. Personally I think it’s brave and interesting. He brings a depth and nuance to Swift’s music that I didn’t even think was there. It’s definitely worth a listen.
