Funny correction!

NEW YORK (AP) -- In a March 23 story about the ratings for the 10th-season premiere of "South Park," The Associated Press reported erroneously that the show's grade-schoolers tried to revive the apparently dead character Chef. Instead, it was "Super Adventure Club" members who tried to revive Chef.

Denver March Powwow starts Friday. Celebrate with food, song, dance and storytelling. At the Denver Coliseum.

MTV blurb. They still love NY, despite it's drrty, drrrty air.

Santa Dog celebrates its new EP release tonight in Bristol. Details The four-song "Belle De Jour" EP does indeed show Santa Dog can do sparkly, tongue-in-cheek pop. The bones are here: tight playing, rich vocals from Rowena Dugdale, lyrics that might sound silly when said aloud but sound ok in song...Will wait to pass judgment until there's a full album out. Santa Dog is honing its sound and satiating fans with EPs for now whilst courting the zines. keep an eye on them

Mr. Destructo is at it again:
from 2005
and from The Denver Post this year:"Porlolo missed some sets after singer Erin Roberts broke her leg in two places at a party late Wednesday night. She jumped on Post pop music critic Ricardo Baca for a hug and they fell, prompting her trip to the hospital..."

Snow day

Big snow day on the way. Get your groceries early today, say by early afternoon. It might be hard to get around once the snow starts flying, so here's a look at some recent DVDs that might be fun to rent once you're done building the snow igloo and need to snuggle inside with hot cocoa:

Hustle and Flow
Lost in Translation. (saw the film in the theater, but I heard the DVD's pretty good)
Moulin Rouge. I'll admit, I only kinda liked the movie, but when I saw all the extras on the DVD, with full uncut looks at the choreographed dances and with commentary from Baz Luhrmann on why he chose the songs he chose for the movie, etc, it made me appreciate the movie much much more. (And the web site is fun too. Click around until you get to "Toulouse Tonight" for interviews with cast/ crew conducted by John Leguizamo. Ha!
Spirited Away
Hero. Seen it, but the movie's beautiful!
Pride & Prejudice

3/20 Rhett Miller

Rhett Miller plays FREE at Twist & Shout, Monday, 6 p.m. Get there early for easy free parking and a view of him up close, but you should still be able to get in if you get there ten minutes before. Just be prepared to see the back of a lot of hipsters' matted hair and sweatshirt hoods.

(Also, Gomez @ Twist & Shout Underground across the street, 5p.)

Stuck in Denver? Can't get to Austin? The Warlocks play at The Fillmore tonight.

Rose Hill Drive and The Fray do a free party in LoDo tomorrow for 93.3, then the Denver Roller Dolls bout at the Coliseum at 7:30p and the St. P's debauchery continues through the night at the after-party @ 3 Kings Tavern, or be creative, ditch the after-party and find your own fun

Echo Mountain update

Went up to check out Echo Mountain yesterday, the new ski area just up the road from Denver dedicated to the terrain park. (If you want to know more, hop over to the forums on Echo Mountain's web site) It's a soft open, so to speak, with the park really getting into gear next season. They had a long run open this past weekend and the lift was running for their "sneak peek" for Access Pass holders and their friends. People who showed up were greeted in the parking lot by a guy in a monkey suit, got free grub/Red Bull, got to see lots of orange construction fence still up around one of the features that has yet to get snow blown on it, and one of the main buildings was still under construction. It's manmade snow, but the kids all seemed to like it. Some rails and boxes are up. There's a good vibe there. All electronica/hip hop/punk all the time in the lodge and on the slope, just like the park rats like it. They've got Atari in the video lounge.

In any case, it's a beautiful, winding drive up Squaw Pass road in Evergreen to get there, past a mountain valley and through trees to the park, where there is an amazing view of the peaks of the foothills and the snow-covered Rockies farther in the distance. They haven't decided what they'll do with the park in the summer. One idea floating around is offering up space for weddings. That will probably drive the kids crazy, but if you see the views here, it makes a lot of sense. Mountain biking is another option.


I hope this link works because it's funny.
