30 MILES OF CRAZY! 33: BLUCIFER!

... and so here we go again. Not being home in the studio is not going to stop me making this post. No, not indeed! SCIENCE IS GOOD!

So, it's Friday with a new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#33). First one with some sort of COLOR as well! This week: BLUCIFER!! .... or "Yes, Virginia, There IS a Giant Demonic Horse statue outside of the Airport."

Yes.. this is a real thing and the subject of some controversy here in Denver ("Do we REALLY want people to see a giant Hellhorse with glowing red eyes as the last thing people see in Denver before they fly away?") 'El Mesteno' (or 'The Blue Mustang') was the creation of sculptor Luis Jimenez and is another cog in the endless conspiracy theories surrounding Denver International Airport (D.I.A.) (there's another comic strip just about them. I bet the Lizard people love Blucifer, taking him out riding at night... cause why not?)

... which brings us to the Musical Accompaniment as well as a couple bizzaro videos about Blucifer and D.I.A. 

For my part, I love Blucifer and wish that I could display it in my backyard... for, ya'know,... the kids.

30 MILES OF CRAZY! 32: NYE 2013... with Top Hats

... and so here we go again. It's Friday with a new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#32). This week: NYE 2013... with Top Hats... or A NIGHT AT THE THEATRE

Here we go with a small glimspe of our night at Denver's historic Oriental Theatre for the Slim Cessna's Auto ClubMunly & the Lupercalians, and A. Tom Collins show. Of course, Top Hats were mandatory. This was an event, a celebration, and we will not dress like common farmers, Lemon!

Since it was a concert, there are several musical accompaniments! The first being Munly & the Lupercalians (Panel Two) which have always been amazing each time we've seen them. It really says something about us that I lean towards them while K always prefers Slim Cessna's Auto Club (Panel Five). I also need to include A. Tom Collins (who I'd never seen before and put on a great show.) ... and let's do an EXTRA SPEED BONUS Fourth musical accompaniment since I love this song. I can do that since I'm running this show. 

God... I really need to practice more on my banjo.

30 MILES OF CRAZY! On the Road: BOSTON! 30: A Walk Through Boston

It's Friday! A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#30) Part 6 (of 6) of 'On the Road: Boston!' This week: 'A Walk Through Boston'... or THE HOUSE OF PERSEVERANCE

So, this is it. The last installment (for now) of 30 MILES OF CRAZY!: On the Road. In doing the last installment of this particular city, a look at some of the sites of the city that I still call my home. It's just don't live there anymore. 

Next week: Back to Denver and Colfax Avenue.

Now the utterly appropriate Musical Accompaniment for this week... and GO!

30 MILES OF CRAZY! On the Road: BOSTON! 29: The Right Thing

It's Friday! A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#29) Part 5 (of 6) of 'On the Road: Boston!' This week: 'The Right Thing!'... or CENTRAL SQUARE IS FOR LOVERS (AGAIN)!

For one more week, we are still on the road in Boston. This is yet another true-ish story about a certain young lady from Colorado (though this story is utterly true), her trips to the East, and her experiences in The Hub, centering around Massachusetts Ave and (this week) an event that happened during our most recent visit at one of my favorite bars in Cambridge along that historic avenue (a great center of neighborhood character in a rapidly gentrifying area.) 

So... here we go with two apt Musical Accompaniments. The first is the hit song referenced in the strip... and the second (again by Little Joe Cook)... cause why the hell not. I love that bar. 

I also found this small video from the Boston Post about Little Joe Cook (age 90!) talking about his career. Check it out!
