Among the more refreshingly unusual items screened during this year's Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) was first-time writer/director Sophie Barthes' Cold Souls. A surreal sci-fi comedy about the human soul, the plot follows Paul Giamatti as he rehearses for an upcomin

Going through Hard Times, War Room's dance party
by James Whitely - SGN Contributing Writer

On August 19, SGN attended Hard Times, the 'Multi Poly Omni Sexy Art Experiment' at the War Room. It is young, sexy, and stylish, and has the feel of a house party - and a fucking good one at that. (The first Hard Times was held on June 24.)

So who comes to this party? Accor

Beatlemania descends at Edgewater retro-party
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

August 21, 1964 was an important day for rock music in Seattle, and it had nothing to do with Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, or the yet-to-be-born Death Cab for Cutie.

On this day, four young men - the pride of England and undeniably the world's biggest stars - landed in the Queen C

Shorts

I remember James Spader for two reasons. One is the movie a former friend dragged me to that I loved even more once I got into the S/M scene that I'm in now. The movie is The Secretary, which is almost de rigueur for anyone into S/M, th

Bumbershoot and beyond: Five upcoming music festivals
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Music festivals are an excellent way to hear lots of great music and check out new bands with a single admission fee, and I've got five in mind - two nearby, two in the Western US, and another out in the Atlantic Ocean - that you might want to put on your calendar. If you're a music fiend

Dear Editor:

I admit I would not like to see our seasoned senator leave a void in the State Senate where he is a leader who brings people together across the aisle, who has defended programs for People with HIV/AIDS and one of a very few Seattle Legislators with the will and the wisdom to address our transportation woes. But fra

Drama at home during 'monkey month'
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Okay, as I sit here with yet another pile of paper I've spilled something on today, I have to wonder: Is there something wonky going on in the universe besides the usual wackiness, astrology-wise, or what? Ah, but according to my honey bunny, who's a top-notch astrologer in Chinese an
