Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Bad Santa’

This week’s DGO is rather Christmassy (if you haven’t noticed), so it’s only appropriate that I recommend a holiday film. But don’t get your childish hopes up about some family favorite like “Elf” or “It’s a Wonderful Life.” “Bad Santa” is a black comedy directed by Terry Zwigoff (who also did “Ghost World”) and it’s raunchy,...

Love it or Hate it: Real Christmas Trees

Love ItI know the downsides of having a real Christmas tree. The scratchy needles that get everywhere, having to pour water in so it doesn’t dry out, the time it takes to put up and take down. But the smell of pine in your living room is well worth the effort. When I lived in New York City,...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Arrival’

There’s something about being high at a movie theater that the act of Netflix-and-chilling at home cannot duplicate. There’s the convenient array of snack choices (expensive, but worth it), enormous screens, the swell of music, the communal act of experiencing a story alongside a bevy of strangers. The powerful combined...

Durango DJs put their spin on a swiftly popularizing art form

DJ stands for “disc jockey,” a term referring to performers who mix recorded music while it’s playing. At one point, the “disc” part referred to gramophone records; but in this digital age, DJs are apt to mix music from CDs or digital audio files on a laptop. They used to be underground cool-guys who spun vinyl in dingy...

Love it or Hate it: Jell-O

Love itHonestly, I couldn’t tell you exactly what Jell-O is, other than it probably contains gelatin (not even sure what that is). And something about horse hooves. How horses got tied up in this colorfully bouncy treat, I don’t know.

I love Jell-O because it’s the most...

Love it or Hate it: Eddie Redmayne

Love it Eddie Redmayne’s grandma absolutely loves his newest movie, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” I love that Eddie Redmayne loves his grams enough to talk about how excited she is for his wizard role. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m going to sometime this week purely based on her....

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘The NeverEnding Story’

Wolfgang Peterson’s “The NeverEnding Story” (1984) is one of those campy, scary, wildly imaginative films that most kids growing up in the ’90s took fanatical pleasure in watching at sleepovers. And what’s better than a combo of weed and good old-fashioned nostalgia? (Hint: Nothing).

It begins with a kid named Bastian...

Behold the burger: Americana on a bun

As is customary with any prized food dish, it’s difficult to determine exactly who invented the hamburger and when. There are countless versions of the story, and varied styles of the burger itself. Everyone wants credit, but complete proof is scarce. The most popular assumption is that it originated in Hamburg, Germany – but...
