In one scene in the new martial arts spectacle that is Ninja Assassin, the action is so fluid that it almost seemed like a gory ballet. My partner, who went to the movie with me, agreed, and also commented on the buckets of

WINDING DOWN 2009: Cake, Deck the Hall Ball
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Winding down the year by no means signals a less-than-stellar lineup of great shows. On the contrary, there are plenty of December concerts worth seeing and investing in a pair of earplugs for. Here's what I suggest checking out this month.

Q-Scopes by Jack Fertig
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Work can be overwhelming, and the demands of relationships don't help. The stars call for an exotic, artistic holiday. A foreign film or art show can offer enough escapism, and perhaps a new insight to put the pressures into perspective.

A few thoughts on the Tacoma tragedy
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

I'll go right to the bad stuff first because I've always been a believer in getting icky things out of the way, then moving on to more palatable things. I was in mope mode last weekend, because the cash flow wasn't - wasn't flowing, that is, and I felt pretty down about it because tho
