And what's cool is they're with Kings Of Leon.

I really used to hate Leon's lead singers voice but grew to appreciate it after 'Sex On Fire'.

So now I get to see two for the price of one.

2. Have you ever smoked?

Unfortch, yep.

3. Do you own a gun?

No, but I actually do want to take up recreational shooting, like at a firing range.

That way when the zombies come, I can make perfect shots, like in 'Dawn Of The Dead'.

I only remember cherry.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?

Depends on what I'm there for, and which type of doctor.

Yum! [Damn, now I want a hot dog.]

[Man, I'm such a 'mo. Ha ha.]

11. Favorite hobby?

Collecting lederhosen.

Actually, collecting music.

I have to be doing multiple things at once.

Like old-man slippers for the house?


But many of my dress shoes are slip-ons.

One of my faves: a red gingham short sleeve country button down.

It's like a modern Banana Republic version of the classic cowboy shirt with the pearl snaps.

25. Where will you be spending Christmas?

Haven't thought about it.

26. Can you whistle?

Yep, and sometimes it gets me in trouble because I don't realize I am doing it.

27. Favorite color?

Red, orange, black and white.

28. Would you be a pirate?

Whatever happened to Michelle Branch?


'On June 15 2008, Branch announced on her official message board that she will be fulfilling a lifelong dream by opening a bakery in Nashville, TN called 'The Sugar Bar' with pastry chef Rebekka Seale.'

This morning at work, while I was in the kitchen getting my breakfast ready, a worker from another department that I call 'Bootius Maximus' [because he has a total big ol' male J Lo booty - in a good way] said something that kind of struck me as odd.

Now, we have never even said as much as 'hello' in passing, to each other.

Well, while I was digging in the fridge, and he was next to me getting ice, he asked where I got my shoes.

I must admit, they are pretty sweet shoes, and one of my fave pairs which do happen to get a lot of compliments. [Not pictured above.]

So I tell him where and then he goes:

'Cute shoes.'


Now, I had always suspected he was 'family' after a co-worker once mentioned that he thought he had seen Bootius at The Big Gay Club.

To look at him, you would just think he's a big burly straight boy with some inkling of a fashion sense.

He's far from looking all Metro.

But, his use of the phrase 'cute shoes' totally has me thinking he's a big ol' 'mo.

Or am I wrong?

I personally have never heard a straight guy use the term 'cute' to describe a piece of fashion.

Much less to another guy.

I could see a straight guy saying 'cool' or 'sweet', but not cute.

So what do you guys think?

Friend or 'family'?

Scenes From The DNC


Strollin', strollin', strollin'. Keep those delegates strollin'. Strollin', strollin', strollin'. Rawhide!

Po-po On Bikes

Lil' Girl Handing Out Free Lemonade

This is a brilliant McCain tactic.

Getting an innocent looking girl to hand out cyanide laced lemonade to take out Democrats one by one.

No one would suspect that she would be a GOP operative; which is the beauty of this subversive act.

In fact, she is a genetically modified senior citizen engineered by PAC money to single-handedly undermine the DNC.

Be aware that others like her are also afoot; disguised in Obama singlets, secretly videotaping and sabotaging the event in their Bugaboo strollers.

They're colic-y, but deadly.

The MSNBC 'Pavilion'

Why they chose this location fathoms me.

Union Station doesn't exactly evoke 'Denver'.

It would have been cool if they were able to broadcast from the turret of the State Capitol building.

[By the way, my bus home passes by this to and fro from work, so keep an eye out for the windowlicking dude on the bus around 7:25 AM and 5:005 PM during the convention. I'll be the one wearing the Fez.]

Not Really Related To The DNC But...

This pic evokes why Denver/Colorado is the skinniest state.

We peeps run/bike/hike everywhere.

Security Gates

I don't get these gates.

There everywhere, blocking streets in LoDo, but they have this portion that could totally act as a seat.

The homeless could totally sleep on them, or watch the events, but oh wait.

That's right.

They were shipped off to the zoo and movie theaters with their fab new hairstyles.

[Honestly, there are no homeless to be seen. On the news, I saw that there was a rumor among homeless peeps [from a few homeless peeps themselves], that they would be arrested/deported to the subs. So, many of them split Downtown.]

The Bunker

The Pepsi Center has been cordoned off unto a bunker.

Also known as 'Tent and Generator City'.

Security is so strict, they yell at you for taking pics.

Sorry, Mr. and Mrs. Gestapo.

Dude, Where's My Nominee?

This guy obvs didn't get the memo.

It stated that stonewashed denim, and frizzy Sidewhow Bob do's are strictly verboten.


Go to the zoo or the movies until Friday.


Denver's Times Square [AKA Tourist Central]

Sometimes A Train Is Simply A Train

Seriously, Union Pacific shipped in all these trains to Union Station when we have little to no train service.

I guess we have the California Zephyr, and the Ski Train, but these tracks are ALWAYS empty.

The bloggers get their own tent!


More Protestors!

Reminds me of the Summer events that take place in Civic Center.

Po-po On Horses!

Obama Jama

Honestly, one of the favorite things I have seen so far.

Not only the images of Obama and McCain rockin' out, but the fact that Hillary is the DJ on the 1's and 2's.



You know Denver is trying to prettify itself when it turns on the water fountains.

We're basically a mountain desert, undergoing an eternal drought.

So to see them turn on the hose is quite the spetacular event.

They even turned on the water fountains on the mall!!


This ice cream truck followed me home.

More McCain hooliganry?

Why would an ice cream truck be out now when all the kids are back in school?

If I don't post tomorrow, alert the authorities!

Or not.

They're probably involved!


I think I have said too much already.


I didn't take pictures.

I don't know what you're talking about!

I'm a Canadian.

[Literally] Falling For The First Time

Barenaked Ladies singer survives plane crash

'TORONTO (AP) -- Barenaked Ladies frontman Ed Robertson and three others have survived a float-plane crash near Bancroft, in southeastern Ontario, the band's manager, Adam Smith, said in an e-mail.

The private float-plane went down Sunday afternoon.

Robertson's friend Gord Peel told The Intelligencer that the other passengers were Robertson's wife, Natalie, and their friends Julie and Jeff Jones.

Smith said Sunday night in an e-mail that everyone was fine, but would make no other comment.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada was assessing the scene of the accident, spokeswoman Julie Leroux said Monday.'

They're kind of jinxed.

Steven got busted for coke.

School speaker berates students over 'slutty' pictures

'WINDSOR – A school district is apologizing after a police officer invited to speak at a high school assembly called out students by name, saying their pages were inviting to sexual predators.

Windsor High School Principal Rick Porter has apologized to the parents of two high school girls targeted in the lecture by Cheyenne Police Officer John Gay on Tuesday.

Porter told parents he had heard Gay's Internet safety presentation before, and while he knew the officer would mention local students online postings, Porter told parents he was surprised by the tone and language used.

"He basically just said I was asking to be raped," said Shaylah Nordic, a Windsor sophomore.

A photo from Nordic's page, depicting her in a T-shirt and shorts, bending over and pointing at a new pair of shoes, was displayed on a screen in front of two separate student assemblies.

"He was saying that the posture of her rear end could be appealing to a sexual predator," said Ty Nordic, Shaylah's father.

"He did this in a mocking way," Ty said. "He took a pretty innocent picture and made it look sleazy."

Ty says Gay told the students that older men would be masturbating to her picture.

"She was belittled, embarrassed and humiliated," Ty said.

Ty says he accepts the school's apology but questions why teachers or administrators failed to intervene as Gay mocked his daughter until she ran from the room in tears. Gay then moved on to target photos of other Windsor students.

"I understand the intent of the program," Ty said. "But he went way, way, way too far."

His daughter agrees.

"The whole MySpace awareness thing, I am on-board 100 percent," said Shaylah. "But he could have done it in a different way."

Shaylah says teachers comforted her after she left the assembly but did not step in beforehand, even when other students yelled at Gay to leave her alone.

"My counselor said none of them knew what to do," Shaylah said. "(They didn't feel like) they had the authority to tell him to stop."

She says Gay called her later in the week to apologize.

Gay did not return a call requesting comment.

Porter declined an on-camera interview but agreed to answer questions submitted by e-mail. His response has not been received.'

But the thing is, once I get up and around after a hot shower and the caffeine hits my system, I feel better.

Not 100% though.

It's so weird.

The most expensive Rubik's Cube was the Masterpiece Cube,produced by Diamond Cutters International in 1995. The actual-size, fully functional cube features 22.5 karats of
amethyst, 34 karats of rubies, and 34 karats of emeralds,all set in 18-karat gold. It has been valued at over 1.5 million dollars.

The Rubik's Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian Professor Erno Rubik. Its worldwide launch took place in 1980.

If you made a single turn of one of the Cube's faces every second, it would take you 1,400 million million years to go through all the possible configurations. (In comparison,the universe itself is only 14 thousand million years old.)

'Confessions Of A Super Hero'

Denver does love its dogs.

Denver pools have gone to the dogs

'DENVER - If you have ever wondered how clean your local pool is, Sunday was not the day to ask.

Things got a little hairy at the Berkeley Park pool in Northwest Denver. A few hundred dogs took advantage of the fact that the pool in now closed for humans.

"As long as we're going to be draining the pool for the year we might as well make the most of it before we do that," said City of Denver employee Meghan Hughes.

Saturday marked the end of the season for the outdoor pools in Denver. But that didn't stop some dog lovers from taking a dip with their furry friends. Most dogs leaped at the chance to swim a few laps while other dogs need a little push before taking the plunge.

Baxter, a Rottweiler mix, was splashing around with his "mom," however "dad", Chris Dunbar, could not be persuaded into the water. "No, not at all. It's disgusting, it's filled with dog. I don't even know how she got in, there's all this dog hair. There was an accident earlier that definitely made me go away," Dunbar said.

Lifeguards were on duty in case any puppies forgot how to dog paddle. However, they were overlooking the "no running" rule and the "no peeing in the pool" rule.

Denver Public Works was also there promoting its Keep it Clean Denver campaign, reminding dog owners about their responsibility for keeping our environment clean by picking up after their dogs.

Darren Mollendor was handing out dog leash bag holders and informing people about unwanted bacteria.

"Anything that gets put on the ground, when a rain storm comes through, it all gets picked up and washed down into the storm sewer inlet on the corner of your street and it goes straight to the rivers. A lot of people think those go to the treatment plant but really they go straight to the river untreated and cause pollution of our waterways."

Anyone who missed Sunday's event can go to and sign up for a free dog leash bag carrier.

"Dogapoolooza" was a fundraiser benefiting the Denver Municipal Animal Shelter.'



Cow chases off bear

'HYGIENE - Residents of a rural Colorado town say a cow named Apple chased off a bear that had climbed into her favorite apple tree.

Jack McDonald of Hygiene, about 30 miles northwest of Denver, says the bear had climbed out of the tree when the cow approached it Sunday afternoon.

McDonald says the animals touched noses and hung out together for a bit before Apple chased the bear off.

"It was hilarious," McDonald says.

There's no sign that either animal was hurt.

Apple belongs to McDonald's landlady, Nancy Dayton, who has a house and three rental units on 14 acres.'

Five Iron Frenzy - 'Oh, Canada'

I used to like them, until I went to one of their shows and had to sit through a Christian pray-a-long and a rendition of 'Amazing Grace'.

None of their music that I had heard let on that they were a Christian act.

So needless to say, we were shocked and somewhat scared.

Come to find out later, one of my friends is friends with some peeps in the band.

I guess they're not hardcore Christian evangelists, and are actually fun to party with.

I don't mind religious types when they're not all preachy and in your face with it.
