Entertainment Review: 'Interstellar' a sublime cosmic knockout Review: 'Interstellar' a sublime cosmic knockout
Since his breakthrough with the backward-running "Memento," Christopher Nolan has made a plaything of time. In "Interstellar," he slips into its very fabric, shaping its flows and exploding its particles. It's an absurd endeavor. And it's one of the most sublime movies of the decade.

Weather With record warm October nearly in the books, could 2014 be Sea-Tac's warmest year on record? (New) With record warm October nearly in the books, could 2014 be Sea-Tac's warmest year on record?
It's seemed like a broken record of late -- the end of the month comes, and we talk about how warm the month has been. July, August, September and now October have been among the warmest on record at Sea-Tac Airport (since 1945) in all three categories: average monthly high temperature, average overall temperature and average minimum temperature.

For October, it'll end up the second-warmest by high temperature (64.6 through Oct. 30, record is 65.4 degrees in 1987, second place was 63.8 in 1965.) But by average temperature (high+low/2) and average low, 2014 is the champ -- and by quite a bit. The average October temp this year is 58.2 degrees; old record 56.4 in 1965, and average October low temp is an amazing 51.7 degrees, obliterating the old record of 49.2 degrees in 1988.
