another "name this song" question

I just heard this rock song on the radio driving by Tacoma WA tonight. Supposedly it's by a band named Cruella (sp?) with a girl singing and some instrumental sections with heavy guitar. Would anyone have any idea what song this might be? I was going to google one line of the lyrics but forgot what it is already. Thanks!

A new transmission? Really? It's a Toyota?

My pickup is a 2000 Toyota Tacoma V6 4X4 with an annoying problem of popping out of first gear both under load and when not under load. This is apparently a known issue with Tacomas as documented here. I've replaced the bushings per the linked article except for the white one on the end of the shift lever visible in the second photo of step four. This part is on order but I'm not optimistic. What are my options? [more inside]

Seattle area battery dealers, DC UPS

Seattle area telecom: Can anyone suggest a battery distributor/warehouse that stocks deep cycle lead acid batteries of the type suitable for a DC UPS? Shipping costs on these are very high so we would prefer to buy from a dealer somewhere along I-5 in the area from Bellingham to Olympia. We're looking for 6V 220aH T105 (golfcart type) and AGM 12V 120aH batteries.

What's the best little steakhouse in Tacoma?

What are the best steakhouses (both Japanese and American) in the Tacoma, WA area? I'm new here and am looking to take my lady-friend out to a nice dinner. Price is not much of a concern (keep it under $75 per plate, please), and we don't mind driving for an hour or so to get great food.

Seattle, yes. Hydroplanes, no.

I hate Seafair. Is there anything family friendly to do just slightly outside of the greater Seattle area? Bellingham, perhaps? Please, no zoos or waterparks; I've done them all already.
