Sunday Sauce

Categories: Reviews

Sunday sauce I have really mixed feelings about posting this because there’s an unspoken code in my family regarding recipes. Basically, you never tell anyone the whole truth when it comes to cooking because the best meals are improvised and you couldn’t tell it on paper anyway. You have to adjust on the fly, using your senses—your eyes, your nose, your experience, and most importantly your mouth. If it looks and tastes fucked up then it is fucked up. Basically, if you ...

Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper – 11/22/14 – Spokane Arena, Spokane, WA Review, photos and video by thenaturalstoner   When I think of all the cities up here in the great Northwest, I honestly feel like Spokane, Washington is the most ‘Mötley Crüe’ kind-of-town of them all, and last night saw the final show of the 2014 leg of the bands ‘Farewell Tour’ finally come to the sold-out Spokane Arena. With Alice Cooper on board to open the festivities, Vince Neil and Co. brought a ... Read More

KUBE 93 Summer Jam 2014 Review, photos and videos by thenaturalstoner I appreciate what Seattle’s KUBE 93 radio tried to do at the Gorge Amphitheatre this past weekend, however I am not quite sure this years Summer Jam worked out to its full potential. Moving the annual event to a two day format seemed to make some initial sense, you could book some old school rappers to fill out a classic Friday night and then bring out young guns for day two and (in ...

Starting promptly at 7:30, ... Read More
