November 4, 2015 |

Alright, hopefully you voted in your state and hopefully shit is changing for the better. Daylight Savings time and Halloween and Day of the Dead behind us, it appears that fall is in full effect.

There are some art thingies happening and a bunch of fundraising going on. Look ahead on the calendar as we have filled in a few weeks ahead.

October 28, 2015 |

The Denver/Boulder area is getting a lot of attention from the GOP and it’s a lot like the “bread and circuses” era of the Roman Empire. I won’t tread into politics other than to say that I wish that the presidential candidates had to dress up for the week of Halloween. That would make things MUCH, MUCH more interesting. Amirite?!
