Markus Groh makes the most out of a new Steinway
by Rod Parke - SGN A&E Writer

Markus Groh is a handsome pianist - tall and slender, about 30, long auburn hair pulled straight back into a long ponytail - and his playing was handsome indeed. His manner in walking across the stage was stiff and timid; he almost never smiled. Yet, when he sat at the piano, lovely poetry flowed from his graceful hands.

Best of Television 2006: Entourage, The Office, Weeds among the standouts
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Besides all the music I listen to, I'm a TV addict. Good, bad, or downright ugly, I'll watch it. In a year in which the big networks delivered one disappointing new series after another, and in which McDreamy faced McSteamy in a Battle o' the Studs, here's what I chose for 2006's best. more

Best of Film 2006: Babel, The Queen, Dreamgirls make the list
by Lorelei Quenzer - SGN A&E Writer

The hardest part of a best-of list is whittling it down. Honestly, I go to movies really, really wanting to like them, and I'm usually pretty happy. (See my list of disappointments for the major exceptions of 2006.) So I finally got my list down to 30 when I stalled trying to place them in a

Not so best films of 2006: The disappointments
by Lorelei Quenzer - SGN A&E Writer

Wow. Maybe I'm just a meanie, but this list was wa-a-a-y easier to compile than my top 10. I'm usually a big fan - especially of numbers 1-3 - so rest assured, these flops haven't turned me off of movies yet. Just be careful in 2007, okay?

Not so best television of 2006: The stinkers
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Television's worst shows out numbered the best by a large margin in 2006. Here's the bottom of the barrel in whatever order you'd like to put them in.

We love Ellen Degeneres, but Rosie O'Donnell is a different story. Her addition to this already-lam

The cover story on last week's Stranger suggested, with its not-so-subtle illustration of Hamlet orating to Yorick, that Seattle's theater scene is dead.

Q-Scopes by Jack Fertig
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): You're a little too sure that you know what's right. If some nagging instinct tells you otherwise, listen to it. Don't cave in to others, but be cool! Arguments with authority figures can put you on a trip you'd rather not take.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): A friend (or more than one) wants "benefits." Im
