So many of you enjoyed the quote I used last week, I thought I would begin this one with another of his quotes, “Graciousness is more than good manners. It is more than courtesy. It is the … more

See it first at SeriesFest season 8

What can’t television do? The answer to that question used to be obvious. These days? Not so much. Modern shows can have just as high production value as blockbusters, entice the same A-list talent … more

Moral Clarity at ‘High Noon’

I am drawn to stories in which the protagonist is internally conflicted about themself or how to proceed through a fog of chaos when the right course of action is not readily clear and available. more

You will find connection at the Benchmark Theatre

If we’ve learned anything from the last two years, it’s that all of us, at one point or another, will get sick. It’s not an enjoyable truth to ruminate on, but one that was repeatedly proven in … more

Don’t be bait for the bad guys

I regularly catch two to three per hour and sometimes I can net dozens in a single day. Not to mention the occasional overnight haul. And such a variety! more

Lace up your boogie boots at the Arvada Center

Unexpected duos are one of the keystones of storytelling — it goes back nearly as far as human history. And yet, somehow, we’re still finding ways to give powerful new spins on the trope. Enter … more

Column: Know the process, solve the problem

There were maybe 20 or so of us in the room. We had gathered for a small regional business meeting a few years ago. We shared strategies, stories, and came up with new ideas and identified some … more

As Barbara Bridges, founder of Denver Film’s Women+Film program explains, a festival curator is a bit of a matchmaker. “You have audiences and these great movies,” she said. “And we say they … more

Spring has sprung, so let’s get growing!

Spring has finally come! The dark days of winter are now releasing into the longer, warmer days of spring. We are starting to see small sprigs of green, the birds are singing and the sun is lingering longer into the nighttime hours. This is an exciting time to begin thinking about growth in a variety of forms. more

Change may be on the way for daylight saving time

I realize that I’m probably in the minority, likely a minuscule minority, but I don’t think it’s a big deal to change our clocks twice a year to go into and come out of daylight saving time. I like that going back to standard time in the fall makes sure that it is light when most work and school days start during the winter. more

Who is to blame for inflation?

When bad things happen, we try to find a reason and someone to blame. I think it has always been this way, but now we have the media who know that reporting bad news sells, and naming the person or persons who caused the bad news sells even better.

Rediscovering Orwell at the Arvada Center

As the author of some of the most searing indictments of the damage governments and people can do, George Orwell has become synonymous with the kind of prescience most artists only dream of. But all … more

Ancient Egypt beckons at DMNS

There are many reasons ancient Egypt looms so large in human imagination - the way they approached and shaped the world around them was monumental in all senses of the word. The impact they made on … more

The biggest problem in Colorado politics

Did it ever occur to you that the biggest problem in Colorado politics is that only one of our members of Congress is a national laughingstock?  I hadn’t either, but State Representative Dave Williams, a Colorado Springs Republican who is challenging incumbent eight-term Congressman Doug Lamborn for the Republican nomination to represent Colorado’s Fifth Congressional District, seems to have come to that conclusion. more
