Denver’s Bump & Grind offers delicious drag fun

“Hello, I’m Nasty and I’ll be your bitch today” is the kind of greeting you can expect at Bump & Grind Café in Denver. A group of women came in shortly after my party was seated and Secretia Pheromones, another member of the colorful staff, yelled out “Hello lesbians!”  Needless to say, my guests and I could not wipe the smiles from our faces. … Read entire article »

Fame is the new American Dream

What exactly is the “American Dream”? According to Wikipedia, the concept was first expressed by James Truslow Adams in 1931, saying citizens of every rank feel that they can achieve a “better, richer, and happier life.” It was that kind of optimistic freedom that encouraged so many of our ancestors to immigrate to the United States. Of course, now the “American Dream” doesn’t seem to just include improving your life, but also getting famous. Instead of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, America has now become the land of unemployment, ridiculously expensive healthcare and the pursuit of a reality TV deal. … Read entire article »

The Whitest Kids U’Know come to Denver

I have been a fan of the Whitest Kids U’Know since back in the day when the series was on Fuse. Trashwire even featured a piece about the evolution of tv sketch comedy focusing on WKUK as well as other sketch shows like Human Giant and the short-lived Acceptable TV. Last Monday, I capped off an outrageously fun weekend by heading to the Oriental Theatre in Denver where all five members of the Whitest Kids U’Know were performing live. … Read entire article »

Taking Back Sunday rocks the Fillmore

This past Thursday, I had the opportunity to go to the Taking Back Sunday concert at the Fillmore here in Denver. It was sunny outside, the line wasn’t too long, and venue is only a few blocks from my house, so I was really excited to go. It was hard for me to shake off the awesomeness and spectacle of the My Chemical Romance concert, but I knew I had to enter the Fillmore with a clean concert slate. We snagged a great place off to the side where we could really see both the stage and the crowd. I felt like a documentarian, only without a camera. The view was great and we even had a place to sit. The crowd was hyped up as the lights cut out and … Read entire article »

The Black Parade marches on Denver

As most of you know by now, I am a huge fan of My Chemical Romance. Though I might not fit their target demographic, I absolutely love their music, their videos and their whole vibe. Last night, I was one of the 7,000 lucky ones who saw their show at Magness Arena in Denver. After days of sleepless anticipation, we finally arrived at the venue several hours early. There were already about 50 kids in line, all decked out in their Black Parade gear and heavy make up. We later found out that the group of girls at the front had been there since 5:30 in the morning. MCR fans, or the MCRmy as they’re called, are notorious for being devoted to the band and they certainly do not play around … Read entire article »

Vintage Trashwire – What your wireless network says about you

In these days of broadband internet, wireless networks are more and more common as people look for ways to connect on-the-go. Nearly every laptop these days has a built in wireless card and most of us probably use wireless networks around our house, the office, or at school. When setting up a network , most people tend to go with a generic name or just leave the default name of their wireless router. As wireless security became more of an issue, people began getting more creative with their network names and making sure that their internet connection remained private. If you’re like me and you live in an apartment building where nearly everyone uses wireless internet, you can find out a lot about your neighbors from the names they give … Read entire article »
