Marriage Advice After 20 Years

Marriage Advice After 20 Years of It

Last week, we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. Many people say this, but it feels like just yesterday *and* forever ago - all at the same time. We married here in Denver, a little while after we moved and it's fun to think about how young and optimistic we were then. We may be more cynical and jaded now, but in many ways, we still work on our marriage just as hard as day one. Some things get easier over the years, some harder. For example - we literally have talked about everything. What is there left to say after all this time? Well, for one, we recently chatted about how we make our marriage work so I could write one of these condescending posts about it. Look... We know every marriage is different. We've seen some couples split for reasons I could not explain, and people stay together for no good one. No judgements here, just some suggestions from two goofballs who still lean on each other as heavily now as they did two decades ago.
Judy Collins - 2016 Interview

Judy Collins Interview (Yes, THAT Judy Collins!)

I was born in 1970, which means the music of Judy Collins was woven into the fabric of my childhood. When I was asked to interview her, I was honored and humbled. This incredible singer continues to make magic and will be appearing at Boettcher Hall on Mother's Day, performing the songs of Stephen Sondheim.
Tell me about your new project. I am very excited about it - and have been waiting to pull this together for a long time. I love "Send In The Clowns" which was written by Stephen in 1973 and my recording of it was his first top ten hit. We will be performing a bouquet of my favorite Sondheim songs, in the beautiful Boettcher Hall. I will interweave some of my other classics, of course, but it will truly be a “A Love Letter to Stephen Sondheim.”

Psychedelic Zombiez - 2015 Reunion Concert

Psychodelic Zombiez Reunion Concert at the Bluebird

We started appreciating local Denver bands as soon as we moved to Denver, over 22 years ago. One of our favorites was Psychodelic Zombiez, a rock, funk, soul, pop, everything but the kitchen sink band that I can't tell you how many times we have seen live. Sadly, the guys stopped playing together over a decade ago. So you can imagine how excited we were for a Psychodelic Zombiez reunion show at the Bluebird right after Christmas. The place was packed; fans still remembered all the songs and shouted the lyrics. Even better, long-time Denver music scene man Andy Rok and his new band, The Real Deal, opened the show. Every concert around Christmas feels like a holiday party - but this one felt like an actual present.
