Savage Love: Relationship advice that calls on the giants of Broadway

I’m a hetero guy in need of advice. Back in college, I met this girl. Suffice it to say she was into me but I had some shit to work through. So we ended up being a missed connection, romantically. Despite that, we still became fast friends. I’m less awkward now, in large part because our friendship changed my life. We each...

Like it or not, your clothes say something about you

In talking to this issue’s cover phenom Heather Narwid last week, it occurred to me again just how fascinating clothing is. Some people throw on the first thing they see, maybe sniffing it to make sure it’s not too repulsive, while others are obsessive and meticulous. Each of us make choices about clothing daily, and it’s a...

Inspired by the brief life of Freddie Steinmark (1949-1971), the University of Texas football hero who died at 22 after losing his leg to bone cancer, “My All American” follows the trajectory of many movies of its ilk.

Short of stature but with gumption,...

Love it or hate it: Farting

Love it

When I say that I love farts, I mean that I REALLY love farts. They bring me such profound joy and make me cry with the most soul-throttling laughter. In many ways, they have become synonymous with the expression of love and affection in my family. When we’re farting, we’re usually laughing, and when we’re...

Character(s) you’ll find in a serious bike town

Durango takes cycling very seriously. Evidence of this are the $1,000 cars with $10,000 bikes fastened to the top. I myself am guilty of driving a POS, but riding a carbon-fiber beauty.

To get you up to speed on who you might see on bikes in Durango, here’s the rundown. We have four types of cyclists:

Looking to have a few when you’re the DD? Not cool, bro

I’m sure many people have experienced being in an uncomfortable position with someone under the influence who is adamant about driving. Why is it that we let these individuals drive intoxicated? Why is it so hard to not let someone drink and drive?

For college students, the excuse may be, “Well, she was the designated...

When it gets too serious, turn a shopping cart into a recliner

Most of the work in Mike Brieger’s show “Slavery Days,” which opened at the Durango Arts Center on Friday, was expectedly dark and unsettling, full of sepias and black and whites, ghostly washes and crude sculptures (crude on a couple levels). There were heavy reminders and depictions of ugly eras in human history – Anne...
