Earlier this summer, The Naked Turtle White Rum announced its Every Bottle Saves a Turtle initiative, pledging to make a donation to its long-time partner, the Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) for every bottle of the gluten-free, preservative free white rum made. Continuing their combined efforts, The Naked Turtle joined the STC at the 11th annual Sea Turtle Conservation Weekend on the island of Nevis this past weekend. Hosted in partnership by the STC, Four Seasons Nevis and Nevis Turtle Group, the weekend helps researchers study the migration patterns of endangered sea turtles thatRead More
It’s been a while since we’ve been able to read Kesha’s name in the news without biting back some kind of frustration. Since 2014, the pop superstar has been locked in a legal battle with former manager and producer Dr. Luke (aka Lukas Gottwald) alleging sexual assault and emotional manipulation, while seeking an injunction to be freed from her contract with Sony. So far the law has predictably come down on the side of the record label and the accused (which I’ve already aired my grievances about), but the cloudRead More
Colorado’s biggest dance music event of the summer gets a change of scenery to celebrate its 15th anniversary – Global Dance Festival (GDF) moves from Red Rocks Amphitheater to Sports Authority Field this year. GDF ’17 will take place July 21-22 and will transform the Broncos’ stadium into every raver’s dream. Going for an Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)-like vibe, Global is changing things up by adding art installations, a silent disco, a shaded arcade (encouraging people to take breaks from the intense Colorado sun), multiple food trucks and various carnivalRead More
After eighteen months off the map, Writtalin’s favorite electropop band is back with new music in tow. Ahead of their forthcoming album, the LA four-piece Parade of Lights have given us a taste of what’s to come in the form of “Touch,” a bright, hook-packed piece of effervescent pop, the likes of which has been sorely missing from the indie scene lately. Gone are the heavily vamped guitars of their debut, frontman Ryan Daly and the gang instead pursuing a straight-forward dancefloor vibe that begs listeners to abandon their seatsRead More

I discovered PWR BTTM only a month ago, and they probably wouldn’t have crossed my radar without a little stoking from Apple Music. One Friday in early May, a raw punk thrasher called “Big Beautiful Day” from their new release “Pageant” found its way onto my New Music playlist. I was immediately enamored. As I began to read about their image of queer advocacy, the hook sunk deeper. Here were a pair of gender non-conforming musicians rocking drag, while howling out songs about bodily autonomy. I dug it in aRead More
The following review is rated MS, for Mini Spoilers. Wonder Woman just dropped, and I have literally just come back from seeing it in theaters. I’m here to tell you my own personal review (slight spoilers) about the newest addition to the DC Extended Universe. Wonder Woman closely follows the ending of Batman v. Superman, with the premise opening with Bruce Wayne obtaining a photograph of Wonder Woman’s past, and she begins her recollection of the time of the photograph. It is her origin story, her Gotham, her Batman Begins,Read More
This article contains spoilers of Alien: Covenant, Prometheus, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. No amount of plugging your ears and “la la la” will save you. Picture it: America, 2008. The country shook from an unprecedented event that rocks us to this very day. I’m speaking, of course, about the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Obama who? Stay focused.) It was one of the first nostalgia wet dreams of movie fandom, the revival of a long ago and muchRead More

I would like to share something that happened to me on Facebook earlier this week, and no, it had nothing to do with cat videos or a political yelling match. Monday afternoon I came across this piece in Gizmodo. For the “too long, didn’t read” crowd, it is a case study in Facebook’s community standards. User Erin La Ninfa, who runs the blog “Just Another White Hoe,” created and posted the above image to Facebook to find that she and the friends who shared it were flagged and the imageRead More
Mother’s Day is an especially tricky holiday for the best of us. It’s even worse when your relationship with your mother leaves something to be more than desired. And it’s the hardest thing to see‒ Facebook posts from friends that love their mothers, each one a special story about their mother and the things they’re doing to repay them. Stories about the way they never can. And scrolling through each one becomes a chore because you don’t have your own to add. This is the life of someone with aRead More
