Rising Appalachia – Local Boulder Folk Music Event

October 3rd, 2018

According to a Freudian worldview, your Ego is the bossypants part of your psyche who’s always super worried with appearances and logic and avoiding risks. The Id is the wild child who wants illogical, contradictory, glorious gratification of desires. Denver is where I live out my Ego, and Boulder is where my Id wants to rule. My Id loves Boulder like my Ego loves dominating the other parts of my psyche. I visited Boulder this weekend to attend a concert by Rising Appalachia and Lyla June, a duo of folk-singing sisters and a Native American singer-songwriter-poet. The duo’s most recent project... Read More

The Experience of Experimental Cinema; The Unseen Festival: September 1 – 30

September 19th, 2018

Ever since entering the Film Studies program at CU Boulder, I have become privy to how complex and marvelous cinema is. It has also made me realize that film has more to offer than what is commercially popular. There are hundreds upon hundreds of brilliant films which go unrecognized, mostly owing to lack of exposure. However, there are programs which strive to remedy this. One of these is the Unseen Festival, which will take place in Boulder and Denver over a thirty-day period. The Unseen Festival is focused mostly on experimental films, many of which are not shown elsewhere. In attempting to... Read More

What was going on in Colorado when the Declaration of Independence was being accepted as law?... Read More

June 19th, 2017
Ophelia's at the Airedale Building

You’ve probably driven or walked past it numerous times, admired the building, heard people raving about the delicious food and great shows they’ve seen there and maybe have even frequented the unique underground bar yourself — I’m talking about that mysterious, glamours and somewhat nostalgic looking building on 20th St, right in between Larimer St and Lawrence St, that houses Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox. That said, the building itself (known widely as the “Airedale Building”), has always been a quite popular place to visit when it comes to Denver’s hot spots, even before the opening... Read More

This Saturday: New Colorado Holiday to Celebrate Value of Public Lands!

May 16th, 2017

There is a great respect and appreciation for the public land here in Colorado, and the majority of Colorado voters in 2016 “opposed efforts to turn national public lands over to the state.” (Conservation Colorado 2016). With this sentiment in mind, Colorado made itself the first state to create a holiday focused on appreciating the benefits received from public land. Be one of the first to celebrate this holiday on this coming Saturday, the 20th of May, as it will be the one of the first celebrations ever of Colorado’s New Public Lands Day!
