Love it or Hate it: Winter

Love itEvery year around September, like clockwork, I think smugly: “Autumn is my favorite time of year. This is incredible.” But then November rolls around, and every single year, I suddenly remember: “Autumn isn’t my favorite time of year. It’s winter.”

I love the holidays, even though...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Over the Garden Wall’

We all know how frightening cartoons can be. Free from the constraints of makeup, stunts or limitations of the human body, animation can convincingly depict all the wildest fantasies live-action cannot. Most millennials recall the bizarre stylings of ’00s “CatDog” on Nickelodeon or “Courage the Cowardly Dog” on the Cartoon...

Comedian Sean Patton in Durango, one night only

Sean Patton’s brand of stand-up is story-centric, filled with lengthy and complicated tales eventually weaving themselves into something absurdly hilarious. He has performed on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Conan, @midnight, Comedy Central’s “The Half Hour,” “The Meltdown,” “This Is Not Happening” and more. Daniel Korman,...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’

It’s hard to believe the film version of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” came out in 1975 because the sexual politics are so bold. Men cross-dress, wear makeup and sleep with each other. Then again, the movie was a giant flop when it debuted, only rising to acclaim once introduced on the midnight screening circuit. The freaks...

Love it or Hate it: Cemeteries

Love itPop culture has shamelessly promoted the notion of cemeteries being spooky, and I suppose that’s justified. A graveyard is, after all, a plot of land below which rests hundreds of dead bodies, a more morbid locale than most. But cemeteries are also full of history, the only remnant of...

Behind the scenes at Zuberfizz

You’ve probably seen the dark glass bottles wrapped in vivid retro labels on shelves around town. “Zuberfizz” sounds like some fantastical name out of “Willy Wonka,” but it’s actually just a play on co-founder Bander Zuber’s last name. “Soda is so bad for you,” conscientious readers might protest. “Isn’t Durango all about...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’

Irony of ironies, Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” wasn’t technically directed by Tim Burton. It’s his story, world and aesthetic – but the director is stop-action virtuoso Henry Selick, who also did “James and the Giant Peach” and “Coraline.” Stop-motion is an animation technique where objects (in this case,...

Love it or Hate it: Haunted houses

Love itI recently read an article about why anxious people love horror movies. It has something to do with psychological distance; we can deal with the negative emotions induced by a scary movie because we know it’s not real, and the fear is manageable. We might even become more comfortable...
