All right, hands up: Who has eighty minutes to kill this afternoon? Aw, c'mon, sure you do. Take a longer lunch and then chow down at your desk. It will be worth it. Promise. Remember that Fray documentary we told you about at the beginning of the year, Fair Fight, the one that was supposed to be included in special deluxe editions of The Fray? Well, it was included in the deluxe edition, but retailers were reticent to carry the title because of the cost, and while it was available online for a short time director Rod Blackhurst expresses having difficulty tracking one down. "I can't find a way to purchase one for myself even," he reports. There is a version available at Target reportedly, but even then, it's only a thirty-minute edit. "I just want people to see the film," says Blackhurst, who has graciously made the film available for viewing in its entirety online. An insightful look behind the scenes of the Fray trying to follow-up its multi-platinum debut, Fair Fight is definitely worth watching if you've got the time.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
