Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

January 26th, 2023

Every face has its own story, but this one tells two. This is a true face of Boulder, Colorado. A face that can always be found downtown. A face that has its own spirit and lives as part of another. A face that really is a window to the soul. This isn’t only the face of a man wise beyond his years; this is part of Boulder’s collective, figurative “face”. A character that gives Boulder some of its own character. This face tells a story of the people who live here. People who are creative, active, and appreciative. People with depth. People who welcome creations such as this one into the... Read More

Boulder’s Dog of the Day

January 23rd, 2023

Meet Woody! Woody visits the dog daycare I help out at every so often, and has quite the personality. Some of his favorite things include belly rubs, a good stick, and catching his own tail (which he is extremely good at I might add). Rumor has it, if you pet him behind the ear in just the right way, his tail can wag near the speed of light. Boulder is home to many incredible and interesting animals, and Woody is no exception.  Read More

An Ebio major by day, slam dunk champion by night. Meet Mak, my neighbor and current SlamJampalooza winner. Mak moved to Colorado from Alaska to attend CU Boulder and hone his mini-hoop skills. Every opportunity he gets, Mak travels around the world to scuba dive and fish. If you were to ask Mak how he would describe himself, he would say he’s a mix between Shaq and Aquaman. An opportunist by nature, there is no doubt Mak helps make Boulder the intriguing place we can all call home. Thanks Makane!  Read More

“Running clears my head and is a great way for me to relieve stress. I try to get out every day for either physical or mental reasons. I love it because it gives me a freedom unlike anything else. I can zone out completely or focus on certain issues and work it out in my head. Most importantly, beer tastes that much better after a solid run.” Thanks for the insight Josh!  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day ~ Jenna!

January 18th, 2023

Meet Jenna I found Jenna sitting outside of Lolita’s on a nice sunny afternoon. She was in an in depth conversation with an older man who seemed to be passing on some good advice. “After I left work today, I knew I needed to gather wisdom from an elder. I ended up talking to this man who was walking by Lolita’s. He ended up teaching me a valuable piece of knowledge when I needed it most. He gave me some general guidance and pointed me in the right direction. We talked for about 15 minutes. He walked away and thought about what I said and came back half an hour later with the advice I needed.... Read More

  “Sometimes people think I’m crazy for sharing my home with a giant snake, but… you know… to me it’s no different than having a cat. You love and care for them, they will respect you. I figure, if you don’t have the capacity to love- or at least respect- animals (even the slimy ones), then you can’t possibly possess the ability to love or respect humans.” –Joseph  Read More

January 7th, 2023

Just by looks, you might never guess that Mark and Drew are monks in training. The two monks-to-be came to Boulder to spread their ideals far and wide. Both of the young men practice Bhakti Yoga, a sort of spiritual subdivision of the Hindu religion. As soon as I saw them, I recognized the welcoming look in their eyes. I must say, they were the happiest people I’d talked to all day. They were genuinely excited to share and talk with new people. That’s something you don’t see too often anymore. In the age of the smartphone, it was nice to meet two excited, genuine, young men. Good luck with... Read More

“Why do I love Boulder? Because it’s so diverse. You have rich white people dressed as rich white people, poor white people dressed as rich white people, rich white people dressed as poor white people, and poor white people dressed like poor white people.” The crowd that surrounds Sam Malcolm on Pearl Street Mall laughs and awkwardly observes the throng of people swarming by. Sam grew up on a Paiute reservation in Nevada. He came to Boulder in 2009 to pursue juggling and street performing. With torches in hands, Sam does death defying feats of juggling, and keeps the crowd laughing with... Read More

Currently, she’s living in Boulder and studying at CU, but her current apartment doesn’t allow tenants to have pets. Thankfully, she gets her fix at work.  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

Do you own the hat shop? “Not yet! I used to come here every Saturday and hang out because they have live music on Friday and Saturday and I know a lot of musicians so I’d come and see them. I was hanging out so much people thought that I worked here so I think when an opening became available they asked me if I wanted a job.”- Jovan  Read More
