Pre-DNC, Days 4 and 5

Monday, August 25th, 2008

No more fail, just more work. Work Saturday. Work Sunday. Work-people Saturday night at the media party. Wake up Sunday and go to the Green Frontier Fest. Van Jones talks about making the green movement relevant to not just the folk who can afford to be fancy-green. Gosh if news organizations had someone as charismatic, […]

I’m going to call this “Pre-DNC, Day 1”

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

It’s gettin hectic in the day-job newsroom land. The DNC’s a few days away, and my to-do and get-this-done-right-now lists started exploding as of yesterday. Same goes for everyone, and it’s exciting. I got my Colorado Press Association press pass yesterday — the first press pass I’ve has since interning at the Kenosha News in […]

Hey, weekend: the Post’s Underground Music Showcase (translate: awesome local bands)

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Last year I went to my first DPUMS (Denver Post Underground Music Showcase). Had a great time and saw tons of music I wouldn’t have otherwise seen. It’s a browser’s market — with so many venues so close together you can keep walking until you find something you like. Okay, sure, this may look like […]

Tetris League Denver makes the Denver Post

Monday, July 14th, 2008

This is how it happened: Three weeks ago I was coding away at work, and the Post’s features editor came by to check out the day’s Rocky. We were chatting, he asked how my girlfriend was, and I told him “We’re going to Tetris League tomorrow, it’s the only competitive tetris league in the country.” […]

Words, words, words

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

Haven’t written many words here lately. Let me explain the reasons, in ordered-list format: Been doing a lot of personal-type writing on my twitter account. For the best of these tweets, check our free rooster, bumper cars, destructoblade-wheelchair, Revenge is sweet, and blood is salty. Also, I had this whole “What can go wrong with […]

Most.Police Cars.Evarrrr

Monday, February 25th, 2008

Friday night I was walking back from a show at the Hi-Dive with Sarah, about 1:30 in the morning. Saw four police cars all lit up take a right on the corner right in front of us, so we went over to watch. There was a car stopped a half-block down, and there were cops […]
