Off to Camp

Off to Camp

A bunch of creative adults camped out on Lake Coeur d'Alene, making art and refreshing their thinking
In many ways, the day begins like the awkward first days of college. A few participants overslept the communal breakfast.

Answering the Call

An unlikely romance leads to an inspired Spokane-Rwanda connection
It's a love story with a script that any self-respecting Hollywood exec would reject for being a little too hard to believe. A small-town girl from Spokane goes to teach math for six months at a girls school in Rwanda.

TV | Fear The Walking Dead

Will the spin-off be more zombie porn, or something more thoughtful?
Fear the Walking Dead is almost certainly going to be a commercial success, mostly because it shares 75 percent of its name with the highest-rated program in the history of cable television. It will be around for a while, whether you like it or not; a spin-off for AMC's ratings behemoth makes obvious business sense, but there's a good argument that a companion to TWD is almost necessary for some curious fans.

For Your Consideration

Behind the scenes of summer camp, cooking help and one loud app
DOCUMENTARY | A few weeks ago, I implored you to watch the new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp as it is, more or less, the Citizen Kane of television. As unlikely that a cult film could spawn a series 14 years after its release, perhaps more unlikely was that the original film was ever made in the first place.

Dead-On Ringers

A group of Spokanites want to keep the sport of horseshoes alive
Horseshoes fly through the thick, acrid smoke blanketing Spokane on a recent Friday afternoon, tossed by a mother-and-daughter duo to whom the backyard game is more than mere leisure. On this particular day, Kaiti Reeves, a former state champion, is practicing for the following day's Bellingham International Tournament along with her mother, Cindy Reeves, president of the Spokane Horseshoe Pitchers Association.

Time Traveling

Distilled: Waiting, smoking, not smoking and drinking my way across the country
I'm having a beer in the Denver airport, watching a rerun of Super Bowl XX on TV. It's hotter than hell back in summer Spokane, but here in my lounge it's not any season or year.

Fading Glory

The story of Spokane's little-known, even less-seen municipal flags
The green, white and blue doesn't flap and snap in the breeze high above the streets anywhere in downtown Spokane.

Dear Mr. Martin

As A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin visits Spokane, we offer him some suggestions for the series' ending
In what he'd probably hoped would have been in inconspicuous fashion, one of the most buzzed-about writers in all of literature is coming to Spokane. George R.R. Martin is one of the many guests at this year's World Science Fiction Convention — also known as Worldcon, but going by the name Sasquan for this year's inception (Spokane + sasquatch), taking place Aug. 19-23 at the Spokane Convention Center.

One bright spot can't save a lost season
I'm a scorned lover or a beaten puppy, or whatever vaguely Shakespearean term would apply to the sort of people who follow the Seattle Mariners this deep into August.

I(daho), Robot

Think Big Festival brings robotics and artificial intelligence to CdA
Robotic fish, driverless cars and artificial intelligence all read like a 1960s science fiction novel. These concepts aren't only tangible, they're coming to Coeur d'Alene for this weekend's Think Big Festival, an annual conference and robotics display in its second year, promising "speakers | robots | parties."

A New Home

Gonzaga's first on-campus pub revives the Bulldog
Back in 2011, Gonzaga alum Jim Powers of Williston, North Dakota, returned to his old stomping ground to meet up with a few of his college buddies. Just like old times, they decided to grab a beer at the Bulldog, a bar that sat toward the northeast side of campus.
