The complete guide to Durango’s best thrift, consignment and vintage shops

We all remember when USA Today labeled Durango the “least fashion conscious” city in America in 1988. I wasn’t here in 1988 (actually, I was born that year) but I’m inclined to believe our sartorial situation has improved since then. Sure, locals may favor Chacos and nondescript sportswear, but there are still a surprising...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition -

It’s October now, and if you aren’t getting high and watching horror movies all month, you are dead to me. Just kidding. But really, what else are the weeks preceding Halloween good for? This week’s recommendation is somewhat of a cult classic, though it’s barely 10 years old. Like “Blair Witch Project,” “Paranormal Activity”...

Love it or Hate it: Facebook

Love itI get the usual criticisms of Facebook, that people carefully curate their lives, only showing off the triumphs, photos that brag of the mountains they’ve conquered, the breathtaking vistas they’ve ruined with their eye-rolling yoga poses or the plates of food they needed to show the...

Watch out: Global warming and rock climbing on the big screen

Film screening of “This Changes Everything”“The majority of the human race does not see global warming as a serious threat,” boasts a politician in the trailer for “This Changes Everything.” Thursday night (Oct. 13), the Durango Arts Center is screening the film with a panel discussion...

All business on Instagram

It’s 2016, and social media rules the world. All sorts of business, organizations and individuals the world over are using Instagram to sell their work, buoyed by its distinction as an impressively visual platform. Even artists have joined these ranks, enlisting Insta to post their paintings, photographs or jewelry, (then...

Durango’s guerilla artist

Sam Bridgham’s work exists at the intersection of art and engineering. His cheery, primary-color Lego sculptures cling onto the sides of bridges and sign posts in Durango, enhancing but not interfering with the standing framework. “It draws your attention to the infrastructure in a way you had not considered before,” said...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Westworld’

If you felt like getting stoned and watching “Game of Thrones” was too intense of an experience, you might want to skip HBO’s newest big-budget stunner “Westworld.” This sci-fi Western is dark and violent and quite keen on depicting the very worst humanity has to offer. Based on a 1973 film written and directed by Michael...

Love it or hate it: Costumes

Love itI didn’t discover my love of costumes until I’d been in Durango for a while. There’s something about this place that makes people look for any possible reason to throw a costume on. Before I moved here, I didn’t know anyone with a costume trunk. Now, I know multiple people with entire...

What’s wrong with a little fortune-telling?

It’s hardly a mystery why “psychic” is a fruitful occupation. People are afraid of the big questions: Who are we? Where are we going? What happens when we die? Psychics, whether fraudulent or not, can assist in answering some of those questions, similar to a therapist – though psychics don’t need college degrees or licensing,...

Durango’s special vibes

Durango is a sort of hot bed for psychics, energy healers, holistic medicine and yoga devotees. It could be because we’re in a remote corner of the state, far from any major cities, with only the wilderness for company. This can free people up to engage with nature and spiritual exploits. “There’s healers on every corner here...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - “Zootopia”

“Zootopia” is one of the best films I’ve seen about racism, prejudice and police brutality, and it illuminates those issues with talking animals. (Don’t worry, it’s not too heavy-handed to watch stoned.) The animation stars Judy Hopps, an idealistic girl bunny from rural carrot farming country who dreams of becoming a...

Rosie Carter, farmer-turned-artist, joins Studio &

Our favorite oddball gallery Studio & has added a fifth member to their co-owner ranks. Self-taught visual artist Rosie Carter lives in Cortez and makes sculptures, home goods, screen prints, and dimensional pieces she dubs “shadow boxes.” In these thickly-framed dioramas, butterflies burst out of cocoons shaped from...
