The Vashon Loop

  • Justin Ray Hagerty December 6, 1990 – March 30, 2019
    Justin was born, raised and died on Vashon Island. A true Sagittarius, he was optimistic about life and always up for adventure. With his beaming smile and positive attitude, he was well-loved in the community. Justin was a steady-Eddie kind of guy, always on time, rarely missing work or school. A born mechanic, Justin recently […]

  • Blue Monster
    Blue Monster is a five piece instrumental funk band from Vashon Island that has been playing venues and festivals in the Northwest since 2005. Known for their live performances which combine heavy funk grooves laced with psychedelic improvisation, the group frequently invites local musicians to collaborate for on-stage jams. The rhythm section lays down tight […]

  • Max Hatt / Edda Glass
    Described as “Elegantly Funky” by Wilco’s Nels Cline, Max Hatt / Edda Glass have a unique sound comprised of Glass’s unmistakable voice and Hatt’s lyrical guitar. Their award-winning original compositions and wistful interpretations of Jazz standards, Brazilian Bossa Nova, and Americana Jazz have taken them coast-to-coast from New York City’s Lincoln Center to NPR Mountain […]

  • Lentils for Lent
    We’re still in Lent, the period of six weeks before Easter. This is the season in which devout Christians give up something they like very much–chocolate for instance, or red meat. We can still eat fish, and sockeye salmon is on sale as I write. But it’s so good that one might feel morally obliged […]

  • The Earth Will Be Fine “Save Our Species”
    In 1965, as a college freshman, one of the general education courses I was required to take was Biology. The man who taught the course was obviously angry that he had to teach this bonehead science class, and clearly of the opinion that everyone should be majoring in the sciences. His name I do not […]

  • What is a Mystery School?
    Part 2 In the last issue, I covered the very basics of what a mystery school is, that it provides the spiritual seeker with tools and experiences which allow a revelation of their truest self. The path is lit through an ancient map which has only been available to a few evolutionary people for thousands […]

  • The Onus Of Containment
    Since I went on a rant about coffee and teacups last time, I thought I would explore further the frustrating and complicated problem of containing stuff without using new, single-use containers.  Mostly we are talking about food, which needs to be kept clean, disease-free, and, of course, transportable. In the grocery store, try not to […]

  • A Rusty Needle
    I was too rough taking my watchband off at the hospital and broke the little strap.  It was only after I had got the new band that I realized that I had been wearing “genuine leather” watch bands for ten years.  The Vashon girls at the drugstore really help a person out even to the […]
