• The Tomato Stroke

    / Comments (0)

    A reveller swims in tomato pulp during the annual tomatina (tomato fight) in the Mediterranean village of Buñol, Spain, on August 27, 2008. The origin of the tomato fight is disputed — everyone in Buñol seems to have a favorite story — but most agree it started around 1940, in the early years of the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco.

    Rage Against the Machine and the band’s unbathed minions are in town uniting against the Iraq war – through music and odor-filled marches along the streets of Denver. Check out this Flickr set from our friend Josh at Flying Dog Brewery of the parade. “Make Par Not War” = our favorite sign (pictured below).

  • Thank You, TDA

    Boulder’s TDA Advertising & Design took over The Denver Egotist today, transforming our site into The Longmont Egotist. (If you’re tuning in late, check out all the posts with light brown titles on the site to catch up.) For those of you with a sense of humor, you’re welcome. For those of you without, loosen the waistband on your Dockers and get out of grandma’s basement into the sunshine.

    As we did when Sukle took over our site earlier this summer, we’ll once again invite anyone who thinks they can outshine us or two of Colorado’s best agencies who have done it so far by taking over our site for an entire day. Send us an email if you’re interested.

    Thanks again, TDA. We enjoyed every minute of it.

  • An Art Bomb Blows

    / Comments (17)

    There’s a ton of sick artwork up all over town right now courtesy of the talented individuals who have invaded along with Obama. We’ll call them Obama’s posse. Anyway, keep ‘em peeled as you cruise around for some well-needed artistic flavor finally on the streets of Denver. If you take any shots of what you see, send them our way and we’ll post them up. (Editor’s note: some of the shots we’ve posted have been borrowed from other sites and individuals in an attempt to create the ultimate archive of street art from the DNC. Thanks, people.)

    During the DNC, Denver is hosting a lot of art and cultural events. Dialog: City is one those artistic events. This is a temporary architectural pavilion constructed at City Park, called Air Forest, created by the South Korean architect Minsuk Cho.

  • Tix Are Free (And Going Fast) to The Uncoventional '08 Show

    We took a stroll through Andenken today where they’re hosting the Manifest Hope Gallery during the DNC and were surprised by something other than the amazing art. They’re handing out wristbands free at the gallery, one for each individual, for the Unconventional ’08 show scheduled for tomorrow night – featuring Silversun Pickups, Cold War Kids, Nada Surf, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! and DJ Z-Trip. Told you you should go down there.
