There is a point at which, I think, we all start to discover music on our own.

I love the restaurant industry for so many different reasons. I love it because it is the last great American meritocracy, where nothing matters but what you can do on the job and where hard work, smarts and stamina are truly rewarded. I love it because it provides a creative outlet for so ... More >>

This week's adventure in freakiness comes from the very early days of MTV, and the very latest days of former Monkees member Mike Nesmith's solo career (wait, he had a solo career?). And I have to say that it is an amazing exercise in sheer WTF from the first frame to the very last. The song? A biz ... More >>

Yes, we know it isn't Friday yet, and Freaky Friday is typically Cory's domain, but this was too good to pass up -- or off, for that matter.

Once upon a time not all that long ago, Denver seemed like it was isolated from the rest of the world, with musicians making great music that, with a few notable exceptions, the rest of the world just wasn't privy to. (Granted, some of the more cynical among us still contend that's still the case.) ... More >>
JabbaWockeeZ, the first Americas Best Dance Crew winners, hide in plain sight.
Today started out like any other day: 6 a.m. coffee, a couple of smokes, some news and left overs from the night before. I turned on the TV and flipped to MSNBC, because that was the one big news network that I happened to see setting up Sunday afternoon by the train station. As soon as I turned it ... More >>
