LOOKING BACK - Albert's list, best albums of 2000-2009
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Bidding adieu to 2009 also means kissing an entire decade goodbye. In my almost 10 years at Seattle Gay News, I've spent countless hours listening to CDs and digital downloads, and I'm beyond amazed and satisfied by the quality of music put out between January 2000 through December 2009. Given

The best theater of 2009
by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

We had a great year of theater in this town, and now it's time to sum up some of the very best. Whether your choice was bigger budget (mainstream) or smaller budget (sidestream) - What's this 'fringe' business? We should retire this 'fringe' concept regarding small theaters! - you could find sharp

by James Whitely - SGN Contributing Writer

Twenty-five years ago, Seattle experienced the snowiest and coldest November ever on record. As the December rains washed the 17.5 inches of snow away, the Wildrose swung open its doors, clearing the clouds and standing as a beacon to Seattle's Lesbian community, just as it still does t

Best and worst films of 2009
by Sara Michelle Fetters - SGN Contributing Writer

I've been hearing a lot lately about how 2009, much like 2008, was a down year at the cinema - while there have been plenty of good movies, there have been but a scant few great ones. While I agree this is more or less true from a major studio standpoint, I cannot help but feel

Twenty memorable moments from a decade of music
by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

I began covering music for Seattle Gay News back in December 2001. Over the years, I've collected experiences and memories to last me a lifetime. Most of them great, and a few are not so great. In closing the book on a decade, here are 20 special moments (in no particular order) that I'm c

Local film suggestions to brighten the holidays

A new year is upon us and that can only mean one thing to movie fans: We're sick and tired of overblown Oscar bait, sentimental Christmas schlock, and sumptuous costume dramas. That statement may be a bit hyperbolic, as the truth is we never get sick and tired of overblown Oscar bait,
