Two new Mancos vending machines dispense visual artwork, not snacks

Vending machines are a pretty cool concept: You look inside, find what you want, feed some money in, press some buttons, and voila – you’ve got what you wanted. And they’re good for more than just candy, chips and soda.

In Japan, you can get everything from bananas to beer to live crabs (and all sorts of other stuff if...

Exploring the mind-bending (and often miniature) world of Haley Cowan’s art

Since you-know-what descended upon the world, we’ve been spending a bit more time on social media as we continue to socially distance ourselves from the rest of the community. But that doesn’t mean we’re not engaging with local culture.

[image:2]One of the nifty things about social media (yes, it isn’t just for...

Are you ready to listen to live music again?

Remember those times eons ago, when you could go out into public, and listen to real people playing music in front of you, as other people — strangers even — would do the same and you’d all feel a sense of togetherness as you all enjoyed the rhythm together?

Well, those times seem to be back. Live music is a thing...

Break out the masks and the Magic cards as in-person tabletop gaming slowly returns

If you’re the kind of gamer who likes to gather with others to play tabletop and card games like Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, Warhammer, or even Pokemon, Spring 2020 was a long season.

Quarantining yourself from anyone who was not in your household put a damper on in-person gaming that not even a Lesser...

The never-ending changes to the film opening rules

Let’s play a game for the rest of the summer. It’s called, ‘How Many Articles Can Megan Write That Become Dated Less Than a Week Later?’ After I wrote my piece on this summer not getting any blockbusters, the movie theater businesses were given the okay to re-open in the middle of June. Then I write a follow-up to my original...

The silver ball is back as pinball returns to the Four Corners

In a handful of venues across the Four Corners, there are familiar clacks, dings, sounds of steel rolling across a surface, and music and audio samples herald the return of a form of entertainment that has quietly survived the test of time: Pinball.

The machines that once dwelled in bars and arcades across the country...

4 Corners Ichigo Cosplay brings cosplay to Farmington with a volunteer twist

Pretty much anybody can cosplay — you just assemble a costume based on one of your favorite pop culture characters and, well ... wear it. And perhaps roleplay the character. But it takes another level of enthusiasm to not only cosplay a character, but also do volunteer work in the process.

That’s exactly what 4 Corners...

How to deal with the ever-changing movie premiere dates

With the announcement that some movie theaters have now officially been given legal approval to re-open in California, it would appear that this summer may end up having a few new blockbuster releases if we’re lucky. There are still a ton of film premieres that have been pushed back rather than rolling out on “home theater”...

Farmington and Shiprock featured in several episodes of ‘We’re Here’

If you haven’t been watching the HBO documentary series “We’re Here,” you’ve been missing out on a significant representation of Four Corners-area people and places.

The show follows former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela as they travel across the United States recruiting...

What are the best cannabis cooking shows currently streaming?

Quarantine has been a great time to watch cooking shows. After all, cooking and binge-watching television are easily two of the best stay-at-home activities. Especially if you can pry yourself away from the latter to do the former ... before returning to the latter, food in hand.

The release of Netflix’s Cooked with...

Screenwriter Charles Bennett’s impact on the film industry makes another appearance

Six years after the world and film history were exposed to, and reminded of, one of Hollywood’s best kept secrets — the life and career of screenwriter Charles Bennett — the man himself is the subject of a two-volume follow-up to his posthumous autobiography: “The Rise of the Modern Thriller.”

Drive-in movies are back ... at least in Farmington

Culturally and politically, some groups in this country want a return to the way things were in the mid-20th century. This definitely isn’t the forum to talk about that, but there is one thing that I think most of us can agree would make America great again if they were brought back: drive-in movie theaters.
