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

Wonder Woman (2017) Review

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

If you’re the type of person who is always damaging your carpet, electronics, and furniture with spills, the Mighty Mug just might be the most important invention since the light bulb. I recently had the chance to test out some of Mighty Mug’s long line of products, and I must say, I was pretty impressed. While at first glance, Mighty Mug might appear to be an infomercial-ready gimmick that isn’t quite as cool once you get it out of the box and into your home, I can attest to the factRead More
It’s the middle of winter in Colorado, but you’d never know it with the 60 degree weather in Denver tonight. I’m at Larimer Lounge, an intimate venue in the River North neighborhood, that I’ve walked by a million times but have never been to before. Larimer Lounge is close to full already, even though it’s still before 8 PM. To be honest, I’m not even sure who the headliner is – my friends and I are here to see the opener – A R I Z O N A. WithRead More

Review: Decadence NYE 2016

Late December in Colorado is always a gamble weather wise. Last year, NYE brought with it sub-zero temperatures, leaving revelers to run from place to place. So when this year, it is 30 degrees instead of -10, it feels almost balmy. We head to the Colorado Convention Center with smiles on our faces, eager to greet the New Year by dancing two glorious, EDM-filled nights away. Walking into Decadence this year is a treat – giant white jellyfish hang from the ceiling, leading attendees from one stage to another, makingRead More
Finding love- one of the ultimate journeys we take during our lifetime.  Some people have success early on their lives, before online dating became mainstream or even before smart phones were the norm.  Now people are connected to their phones and going without it for even a few hours is considered “going off the grid.”  We manage funds through it, exchange money between friends, call a personal transportation service, and even potentially meet our soul mate. When I first moved to a new city, I decided to give OKCupid aRead More

A fixture in the Colorado dance music scene for a while now, Denver-based Producer Illenium has gone from local favorite to critically acclaimed over the last few years. The twenty-something DJ has been turning heads not only with the high profile remixes that he takes on (i.e. Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers and Say It by Flume), but also with his original music (Illenium released his full-length album Ashes in February, 2016). Despite being a staple in the Denver EDM world, I hadn’t seen Illenium live until recentlyRead More

An Open Letter to My Friend Who Lost a Parent

Dear Club Member, I’ve been where you are before, but you’re there now and that’s what matters.  We are members of a club that does not discriminate, but no one wants to be included.  I remember telling you I was part of this club only to have you look at me with compassion and forgiving eyes, but telling you I hope you don’t have to join for a million lifetimes.  But you’re here, with me by your side, wishing we were anywhere but here. We stand side-by-side because one parentRead More
