We Need to Pee along RTD: A case for More Light-Rail Public Restrooms

Years ago on my 24th birthday, I was riding the bus the wrong way down Colfax to meet a friend at a bar. I was drunk, not completely aware of my surroundings, and realizing an unfortunate fact that would change the trajectory of my journey. I needed to pee. While I was able to peeContinue reading “We Need to Pee along RTD: A case for More Light-Rail Public Restrooms”

Down with Cyclists, up with People who ride Bikes: A Case for People First Language

Back in September of 2020, I was riding one night to get a decent loop in and to clear my head after having a rough conversation. I was going to the Platte River Trail on 13th Ave, which has a part before the underpass that crosses a major train line. I got stopped at theContinue reading “Down with Cyclists, up with People who ride Bikes: A Case for People First Language”

I’m Tired of Ads: The KFC Lifetime Short and the Era of post-advertising.

*Spoilers for A Recipe for Seduction* Harland David Sanders was a lot of things in his lifetime. A soldier in Cuba in the early 1900’s, a midwest carriage painter, and a lawyer that literally ended his law career with a courtroom brawl, all of the things Mr. Sanders did up until 1930 would be enoughContinue reading “I’m Tired of Ads: The KFC Lifetime Short and the Era of post-advertising.”

Around this time last year, my world was different. I was in the second month of working nightshift, was slightly fatigued and disheartened by what felt like a backslide at the time, and utterly devastated by the fact that I worked on Christmas Day. In the last couple months, I feel like I have reversedContinue reading “Covid Withdraws: A Journey into a Pandemic era Denver”

2020: The Year I was Flattened, and survived

When I started this year, I wanted to get into swing dancing. A friend of mine who I met online said that she would go with me to the Mercury Café’s swing nights and support me in my endeavors. The first two sessions in early January were electric, and it was a morale booster thatContinue reading “2020: The Year I was Flattened, and survived”

Post Trump, what comes next? A journey into the abyss in the Centennial State

Note: This is a bit of divergence from my typical, non-political topics of discussion. I would like to emphasize that I am focusing on local elections and things that are Colorado-centric in my analysis. I hope you understand. Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze longContinue reading “Post Trump, what comes next? A journey into the abyss in the Centennial State”

The Regime that Started and Ended in a Parking Lot

Prologue Election night 2016, Yes, 2016, not 2020. We will get to that. I was madly refreshing my large laptop, watching with a friend as states were flashing blue and red, blue and red. We were in Downtown Denver at Union Station, and it felt electric. While many of us were not super enthusiastic aboutContinue reading “The Regime that Started and Ended in a Parking Lot”
