The Review With the Unnecessarily Long Title

September 30th, 2018

There’s this friend of mine — we’ll call her Polly — who absolutely despises horror movies. Can’t handle them. Not only does she see no artistic merit to them whatsoever, but she also doesn’t enjoy the cinematic experience of being scared. Those intense feelings toward horror cinema have been transferred to Polly’s oldest son. Not only does she refuse to let him watch scary movies, she won’t let him view content with even a hint of the macabre. Let’s be clear, I’m not suggesting she should gather the family around the TV for a double feature of The Exorcist and The Shining.... Read More

GLDN – A DIY Art Gallery and Music Venue in Golden – First Show Oct 12th

September 29th, 2018
GLDN_ Golden Mill

The historic and much loved Golden Mill recently relocated and the building became available. We’re all bummed to see it go after so many years. They will be missed by the entire community. Typically, you would expect an apartment building (with scenic river and mountain views) to start germinating within ten minutes of a FOR RENT sign going up in the window. Just a small sprout at first, with barely visible balconies budding at the top and deep roots breaking ground for the off-street, heated, underground parking garage (one space per tenant with a nominal annual fee). This time though, something... Read More

Make Your Ovaries Happy This September – Facts You Must Know About Ovarian Cancer

September 28th, 2018

This September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and to observe the event, visit your gynecologist to ensure your ovaries are healthy and happy. Ovarian cancer, which now ranks 5th in cancer deaths amongst women, is a serious condition and should not be taken lightly. Many women, who neglect annual OBGYN visits and/or don’t seek help when they don’t feel themselves, won’t be diagnosed until the cancer has spread substantially. Many times the symptoms will be mild or non-specific, making it difficult to tell there is something wrong. That being said, ovarian cancer is one of the most... Read More

8 Patios to Dine Outside with a View

September 28th, 2018
Indulge_Denver

If there are two things I know about eating in Denver, it’s that most people are down to try something new and ideally on a patio, especially with over 300 days of sunshine. Although the leaves are changing, temperatures are dropping, and Fall is (technically) here, the ever present 80-degree heat in Denver is no joke. These eight outdoor spaces are not only my favorite spots to grab a bite and sip a cocktail but to enjoy views for days. Lucy Directly above Comedy Works at the Landmark, Lucy not only boasts a killer menu but provides outstanding views of the Denver Tech Center! With a bright... Read More

This summer I had the opportunity to rent a 1989 FJ62 Toyota Land Cruiser from @blueoxoverland here in Denver.  Not just any Land Cruiser either as it was outfitted with everything I needed to make camp just about anywhere I wanted.  We are talking about everything from roof top tent to a cooler to 4×4 lockers on the wheels. Blue Ox Overland specializes in these rigs and has a fleet of 4 in varying colors and years but they are all FJ62s, one of the most iconic series of Land Cruisers Toyota ever made. Of all the outdoor experiences I had this year in Colorado this was by far the coolest... Read More

 4 Strategies to Help You Be Happy

September 27th, 2018
A group of people throwing and blowing confetti in the air outside.

A new survey finds that the U.S. is just the 18th happiest country in the world, because of poor health, poor economic mobility, and a lack of social cohesion.  In each of more than 150 countries surveyed, Gallup asked 3,000 respondents to assess their life on a scale of 1 to 10. The top rung (10) means they are living the best possible life; the bottom means the worst. Americans give an average rung-number of 6.8, while the top four countries all score more than 7.5. There are many reasons why we might not be happy. Social media, while giving the illusion of connectedness actually makes us more... Read More

 4 Tips for Comfortable Cohabitation

According to the 2010 census data, 15 million people live together without being married, a 138% increase since 1990. According to the Pew Research Center, 18 million adults were living with an unmarried partner in 2016. With more people moving in without putting a ring on it, it makes sense to talk about what happens when you move in and what you should plan before you move in. Moving in together is a big change! Now you’ll see one another all the time, and find out about all of your partner’s warts.  Before you cohabitate with your significant other, here are a few things to think about. Make... Read More

HUMP! – A Local Adult Film Festival

September 25th, 2018
Hump!

I do a lot of weird things in my life and I sometimes forget just how weird they are. For example, I was recently backstage at a cabaret show and my facial expression betrayed my pensive mind as I thought about a personal problem. “What’s up, sweetie? Why the long face?” I looked up to answer. Waaaaay up, into the friendly, kohl-eyed face of a 6-foot-five-inch male samba dancer clad only in six-inch platform heels and one of the skimpier outfits from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I confessed my dilemma and he proceeded to give me some very sound advice about being genuine to myself, while... Read More
