Battle of Wills

October 13th, 2019

Some movies only require a script, actors, and a camera. A good and tragically underseen example of this is 2018’s The Standoff at Sparrow Creek, a thriller following an ex-cop investigating a police funeral and his suspicion that the shooter belongs to the same militia he does. It’s a great film that had an estimated budget of $450,000. Costs were kept low by keeping the locations modest. It also helped that the vast majority of scenes were essentially guys talking to each other in rooms. It’s a great film due to smart writing, efficient direction, and strong acting. Does the fact that it... Read More

October 12th, 2019

Coors and Lagunitas are both going to try their hand at marijuana infused beverages in Colorado. Coors will be distributing a non-alcoholic carbonated CBD soda and sparkling beverage line.

Get Your Yoga On: 6 Budgeting Tips For An Aspen Yoga-Nature Staycation

October 11th, 2019

  I firmly believe that nature is medicine. There is nothing more rejuvenating than unplugging from the world for a few hours, sifting through trees and allowing silence to be your personal tour guide. What is now commonly referred to as forest bathing, the act of immersing yourself in nature while simultaneously being present to your surroundings, can be a moving meditation in and of itself, much like yoga. In fact, both practices strongly correlate with one another. Practicing yoga or meditating out in dense wilderness reaps positive therapeutic benefits. Imagine hiking through the mountains... Read More

We Can’t Fire John Elway – But Here’s Ten Things We Could Do

October 11th, 2019

With two Super Bowl rings as a starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos and one more as a General Manager, it seems that no one has the desire or the cajones to fire John Elway. It’s understandable. The man is a walking legend, a Hall-of-Famer, the face of the franchise, and the greatest quarterback in Bronco history.  The Drive.  The helicopter. This one’s for John! But let’s be honest.  Since winning the Super Bowl in 2015, our legend has been less than legendary.  Since that time, Denver has gone 21-32 with no playoff appearances, is off to a 1-4 start this season, and as currently... Read More

Should Scientists Create a Universal Flu Shot?

October 9th, 2019

Scientists across universities have been given $130 million by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to create a universal flu shot, or a shot that attacks the recurring parts of the flu that go unchanged from year to year. This is great news, but it is expected that it will take at least 7 years to curate. According to the CDC, the 2017-2018 year was the worst flu year in over a decade, and the 2018-2019 season broke records, with the flu remaining active and elevated for over 21 weeks. This was despite the also record breaking 169 million vaccine doses given. This year’s... Read More

‘Zombie Deer’ Escaping from Colorado to Nevada

October 8th, 2019

‘Zombie Deer’ is surprisingly similar to what it sounds like; the phrase is referring to chronic wasting disease, a highly contagious disease that affects deer and elk populations and causes lack of fear of humans, lethargy, and emaciation. The disease is not bacterial or viral; instead, it is transmitted by prions similarly to how mad cow disease or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is spread. These diseases attack brain tissue and are incurable, hence the zombie name. Currently, Colorado, Wyoming, and Kansas have all shows animals with the disease, and surrounding states fear that it will... Read More

I Started a Joke

October 6th, 2019

“So, when you find yourself locked onto an unpleasant train of thought, heading for the places in your head where the screaming is unbearable, remember there’s always madness. Madness is the emergency exit. You can just step outside and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away…forever.” That dialogue is from The Killing Joke, alternately the best and worst story about The Joker ever written. On its face, the story is simple. The Clown Prince of Crime has kidnapped Commissioner Gordon, and his plan is to drive Gordon mad, proving to both him and... Read More

House Passes Marijuana Banking Bill

October 5th, 2019

Dispensaries in Colorado and other states with legal marijuana have struggled with the cash only business as federal banks have found loopholes to deal with the federally illegal industry. Setting a landmark precedent, the SAFE Banking Act, implemented by Colorado Representative Ed Perlmutter, has become the first marijuana bill to reach the congressional floor and the first to pass. “The SAFE Banking Act will help thousands of employees, businesses and communities in Colorado and across this country who have been put at risk because they have been forced to deal in piles of cash,”... Read More

Nolan Arenado for MVP

October 4th, 2019

After blowing a 17-3 lead to the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday, the Denver Broncos now sit at a pathetic 0-4.  Coincidentally, the Colorado Rockies ended their nightmare-of-a-baseball-season by defeating the Milwaukee Brewers to finish with a record of 71-91.  A baffling 20 games worse than the previous year. But I’ll tell you who rarely goes 0-4.  Nolan Arenado.  After signing one of the most lucrative baseball contracts in MLB history, Arenado went out and hit .315 with 41 HRS and 118 RBIs. So, speaking of homers, and you’re allowed to call me one for stating this, but…. Nolan Arenado... Read More
