The Westword.com Blog Shortcut, August 4 Edition

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the blogs of our lives...

Backbeat Online takes a tragic turn, with a report from the first Denver gig by Tickle Me Pink since the death of the band's bassist, Johnny Schou, plus word about another premature passing -- that of Amy Fisher, who was better known as No No Nanette, co-host of Pierre's Naughty Burlesque show at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. Also on tap: Reviews of day one and day two of the Denver Post's Underground Music Showcase. Cafe Society delivers the news about the impending debut of the Blake Street Vault, details the continuing repair issues at Moon Time, and scoops up a spoonful of Cocoa Krispies Choconilla cereal. Pay attention if you're a Crackle addict -- or even if you prefer Snap or Pop. The Cat's Pajamas eyeballs the Forever Darling II Fashion Show. And Demver features the penultimate edition of Kenny Be's Delegating Denver series, which focuses on Wisconsin. Oh yeah: There's a story about Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre, too. Rejoice, cheeseheads. -- Michael Roberts
