King Corn documentary playing Denver, one night only

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

Hey, So I saw this documentary in Portland back in November, and it was great.

Four things a disc jockey could be thinking if nobody’s dancing at the party that they’re spinning at:

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

New Year’s Eve I witnissed a dj spin to a crowd of 50 people, and zero dancers. Not just zero for a song or two, but zero for most every song. I like putting myself in my enemy’s head, so here’s a list of the four things I came up with that dj could have […]

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

So says Forbes. Denver’s ranked on the top of Forbes’ “Best Cities for Singles” list three years in a row, until this one. Forbes says it’s the methodology that caused Denver’s plummet. I wrote more about it on the Denver Post Neighbors blog.
