These temporary tattoos are amazing. Tacoma Makes, creators of the Tacoma Playing Cards, brought together five of my favorite artists, Zachary Marvick, Gillian Nordlund, Noah Struthers, Sean Alexander, and Fox Flowers Heart, to make these incredible, detailed, and fun Tacoma-centric art pieces you can put on your skin. I highly recommend getting two sets. Then you'll have five you can wear and five you can put on your wall. [Kenny]

Published: Riverhead Books - October 27th, 2015

Rock memoirs are usually salacious and scandalous, or at least try desperately to be so. Carrie Brownstein's isn't. It is wise and generous. She looks at her history in music and with Sleater-Kinney with a mature sense of awareness and the wit made evident in her work writing and starring in Portlandia. Any fan of any era of her career will like this book, but so will anyone fascinated by the music in the Northwest. [Kenny]

This book stars Melissa. She was called George for a while because people didn't see her as who she truly is and she is Melissa. This book is the perfect book to introduce older kids, teens, and even adults to transgender experiences, issues, and celebrations. It is compassionate and sweet and funny when it needs to be. I learned a lot from this book. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loved Wonder. [Kenny!]
