Today I read a little Wallace Stevens and I tuned my bike. And look what popped up via the Starving Artist Cafe: Attain

Lara and I went on a muddy hike down at Roxborough State Park with the intention of shooting over the ridge and heading into Waterton Canyon. It was a little too muddy for that, so we stuck to one of the wider, drier trails. We ran into a couple of mule deer who did not [...]

I didn’t hit the snooze button this morning, I was up. We got somewhere between 6-10 inches of snow last night. I actually was looking forward to shoveling the walk and digging the car out. A pot of coffee, Bugs Bunny on Netflix, the only thing missing to completely turn me into a twelve year [...]

Why in god’s name do Real Estate Agents find it sooo difficult to keep the aspect ratio of a picture when putting it into MLS? And 10 pictures only on the consumer sites? Bah.

This really sucks, I tuned in earlier this week and got some right wing blowhard dumping in my ear. All is not lost, however, the crew moved online. http://indie303.com I’m hoping they will do the drop-by-indie-band recording a la Daytrotter as well as stream. There is simply way too much good stuff going unheard. They [...]

Just when you think it’s safe to go back in the water, three people have died on the Arkansas River in the last week. All were rafters, two at The Numbers and one at the rather innocuous Pinball rapid. It was joining the swim team at Rigor Mortis on Clear Creek that ended my run [...]

Went to the Cherry Creek Arts Fest and beat the meat of the storm back to the house by about a minute and a half. I did get a bit soaked, but it’s a duck-drowner out there right now. My favorite at the festival?  Not sure, one thing is for sure, a lot of the [...]

Sobering day

I went down to the REI at Confluence today to pick up some odds and ends for the summer. Everything was going pretty well, I got my stuff and headed home. I drove up Colfax and traffic was snarled. It took a few minutes before I saw why it was snarled. There was a woman [...]

Fruita or bust…

…and it’s bust. A winter storm warning is in place and even with my new super snow machine, I don’t think the drive will be anywhere near reasonable enough to make it to the other side of the mountains. No Mike the Headless Chicken or ‘Tater this weekend. It’s probably a good thing, I am [...]
