Water cooler: Virtual changes don’t ruin the other Bloomsday

In Spokane, if you say the word “Bloomsday,” everyone immediately thinks – quite rightly – of the road race each May (September, this year), in which 50,000 people flood the streets of the city to run, jog and walk. However, in other parts of the world, from Dublin to New York or at any university English department, “Bloomsday” refers to something entirely different.

Fetch the turntable: Fiona Apple has returned

Complicated only begins to describe the enigmatic but extraordinarily gifted and daring Fiona Apple. The angst-ridden singer-songwriter is fragile and tough. During interviews, Apple has been surprisingly revealing, yet she becomes Johnny Carson reclusive in between albums while retreating to her Venice Beach, California, home.

Water cooler: Innovative late night hosts are all in with at-home look

Staying connected with the arts: Arts streaming options for self-isolation

With Gov. Jay Inslee’s “stay home, stay healthy” order in effect, we’re all gearing up for another weekend at home. Luckily, the streaming options for the arts are only becoming more numerous. If ever there was a time to catch up on a few expertly crafted miniseries like HBO’s “Chernobyl” and all the other TV series your friends have been pestering you about, it is now. Tonight, the Metropolitan Opera will stream its 2012 production of Richard Wagner’s “Götterdämmerung,” conducted by Fabio Luisi and starring Deborah Voigt, Wendy Bryn Harmer, Waltraud Meier, Jay Hunter Morris, Iain Paterson, Eric Owens and Hans-Peter König. The last opera in Wagner’s “Ring Cycle,” “Götterdämmerung” continues the ring of power’s journey to its final resting place. If you loved J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” but have ever thought that it needed fewer Urukhai, more singing and/or more being “(cast) into the fire,” this is the show for you.
