“Skating in general is an individual activity so people might think that there isn’t much of a culture or community, but we do come together. I remember when friend of mine was going through his final stages of ALS. To keep him out of a nursing home, some of the Boulder skating community came together to help fund the medical care so that he could live out his final days in the comfort of this own home. Skaters might have been thought of as punks, not educated, and be up to no good but I think the story has changed.” -Sam Samuel Hines is the owner of the Meta Skateboards shop... Read More

A: “We once once made a deal; I was going to join cross country if she would join the high school musical.” E: “I did it for a little while…” A: “…But then she quit. My friends and I all felt betrayed! hahaha.” E: “Yea and now we mostly hang out making fun of each other and doing homework.” What are you both studying? E: “I’m studying bio-engineering.

“When [floatation tanks] first came about, they were associated with stoners and drug users but that is a stigma we as a floatation community are trying to shed.  The reality is much more relaxing than intimidating. When I first began floating, I realized that I have been going about relaxing in the wrong way. [Floating] allowed me to let go of anxieties and emotions that I cling to. It’s really an exploration of what your consciousness is capable of. [In a floatation tank] you self reflect, you analyze your own thoughts, you contemplate your life.“ -Corbin Corbin works at Cloud... Read More

“People have been surprised to find out that I’m gay. Is it based on how I talk? How I dress? Some parts of my personality fits into the perceptions of gay men, like caring about dressing ‘nice’… But what does that actually mean? Sometimes I wonder where I fit in. Am I a portrayal of gay culture?… I’m a gamer. I’m a graphic designer. I live for music. I’m a basic nerd. I am me.” -Dean Dean is a graphic designer originally from Alaska.  Read More

     “I suffered from severe depression since I was 10 years old. The medication I was prescribed never offered me real relief… it mostly made me feel numb. I didn’t agree with the diagnosis, but years of trying to get off medication didn’t work. I finally found my answer [about 7 years ago]. When I first found psychic schools, I thought they were like a cult… and for a while I kept my distance. Growing up in conservative Tennessee gave me a false perception of psychics as well as the abilities I suppressed my whole life. When I finally started taking classes,... Read More

“I think when people look at me, the glasses imply I am smart, the messy hair that I am carefree and my clothing shows my inner geek. Still, when people look at me they don’t see the hardship and struggle that life has thrown my way nor the endless effort to improve and reach new heights each day. My earliest memories [were] a blur of new schools, new houses, new places to live- never holding still long enough to plant roots and create a home. When I first moved to Colorado I decided I was done moving and I knew that if I didn’t plant myself I might forever be at the mercy of... Read More

“I’m writing a book. When I started it, I thought it was going to take no longer than one, maybe two years… so far I’ve been writing it for about seven.” What is the overall message you would like your book to tell? “Well, half of the things I believe in are believable and half are unbelievable. Half the things I write about, the ideas, are believable and half of them are not…. But that is what I would like to give, the option for people to believe in something that others think is unbelievable. People once thought going into space and flying a spaceship... Read More
