Summertime in Denver

I was pretty lazy with the camera in Denver this summer. I felt liked I missed people and events. The biggest news while we were there was the theatre shooting in Aurora, which is five minutes from my parent's house. My brother George and I had gone there a few days earlier to see Moonrise Kingdom. As I mentioned on Facebook, Ana flirted with the idea of wanting to go see Batman opening night, but I wasn't a fan of the idea. And you know the rest of the story. After the fact I thought about driving to the theatre to take pictures and I even drove by the killer's apt. but I couldn't bring myself to pull out the camera. Ana didn't see the point of it, she was right. 

A rental car is like a grab bag.

Always good to see Lentini who is trying to be off the grid.
Lost contact with Leslie after high school but connected with FB...this is the type of success story FB wants you think about while the government complies and tracks your personal lives and whereabouts. 
The best sign in the world returns to Camels and Tacos for an encore. A definite family heirloom. 
We were out driving around and decided on a Coors Brewery tour.
There was plenty displays of the brewery's history minus photos of the cross burnings and Ku Klux Klan meetings said to have been held on the property back in the 1920's. There is still debate if those rumors are true. Coors was successfully sued for discrimination in the late 60's in addition to not being labor union friendly.    
There is no denying that Coors family has strong ties to the political right with the likes of the Heritage Foundation and John Birch Society. Reach for that Silver Bullet. 
John Elway always seems to be enjoying a Coors Light in his booth during Broncos games.  
Not only does West Colfax offer seedy motel options but is also rich with signs of a by-gone era. If you favor Americana hotel signage your best bet is Raton, New Mexico. 
Downtown Denver.
West side near 8th and Santa Fe.
The Santa Fe/Aztlan Theatre still stands. The invention of VHS tapes and Blockbusters killed the mom and pop theatre business. The Aztlan has a long history with Denver's punk community; it was the venue to see larger bands. I booked many shows there during my tenure as a promoter. The code of conduct was "don't fuck with the neighbors" and sure enough there were usually fights between the punks and homies. The Denver Skins antics in the late 80's didn't help the cause either. The sign on the marquee still has the same phone number and if you're daring, give the owner Tim Correa a call and book your next gig there.

The old Stapleton tower. 
Ana and I celebrated our belated five year anniversary at the Palace Arms at the Brown Palace Hotel.

We continued our romantic evening with 57 Lesbian and  
The Nuns of Brixton (a nun Clash cover band) at the Lion's Lair. 
Ana helped Ocean and Haleigha write letters to Cake Boss and Elmo, I'm sure the girls had choice words for both.

  1. The antients used Christinaity to initiate the "Beginnning of The End". Along the way they used it to initiate other tools which they will use to further mankind into decay and towards the Apoocalypse:::USA, "democracy", capitalism/corporations.
    Of the tools they have used, religious, political, economic, social is by far the most damaging and seems reserved for those who have experienced each tactic:::
    The god's social tool promoted moral decay, whether sexual, behavioral, professional, etc. It created an enviornment where indecency is the norm.

    The dogs are dead.
    And they're still incurring evil from their prior life(ves).
    Junior Seau is a good example::The real, a 20-something in her next life, making progress, so the gods allow her clone host fake to committ suicide, allowing her off the hook incurring evil in her prior life. AND close the restaurant, her legacy in capitalism.
    Al Davis should be so lucky.
    The antient's leaders, politicians, celebrities, corporate executives, scientists/professionals are clone host fakes, fresh out of high school who woudln't know their ass from a hole in the ground. Without the gods doing their jobs THROUGH THEM they'd only be good for playing with themselves.

    Because of their use of clone host fakes the gods have created a blameless society where nobody takes responsibility for the destruction which has occurred.
    The BODs, CEOs and wealthy are fakes fresh out of high school, the gods no longer push anyone into it and instead used temptation, and the result is devistation the gods won't "make up" to the disfavored anymore.

    There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
    In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
    And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
    People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
    To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

    The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth, matching our decay, but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend as a child in a future life.
    Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
    You NEED active parents who share wisdom to have a real chance to ascend into heaven in a future life, and you MUST be a good parent as well to have that opportunity in your next life.
