The Colorado Burlesque Festival is the first of its kind in our fair state. Still don't have an eye full? Ladies and Gentlemen, presented for your enjoyment, a film list: On Stage: Films featuring Burlesque Dancers and Vaudevillians.
Do you want to try some new music and not spend ANY money? I'm talking free, folks! Your tax dollars at work.
Yes, the Library has many CDs (22,085 titles today, to be exact) but that's not what I'm talking about right now. Bet you didn't know we had streaming music that you can listen to day or night and never leave your home. All you need is a Denver Public Library card, an Internet connection, and Adobe Flash Player 9 or higher (free).
LeBron James is announcing his decision live on Thursday, July 8 at 9 PM ET on ESPN.
I was reminded while watching Hoop Reality, that only 1.2% of all college basketball players are recruited to the NBA. James is a very talented and lucky man. A recent trip to watch the Washington Mystics and Los Angeles Sparks (sans an injured Candace Parker) had me wondering about the percentage of young women being recruited to the WNBA.
We at the Fresh City Life office have been mighty inspired by flash mobs of late. In case you don't know, a flash mob is a spontaneous-appearing choreographed dance in a public place - organizers secretly send out the word via email or text, and when the music starts, the crowd boogies down, surprising
all the unsuspecting onlookers. Flash mobs can be giant, with hundreds of people involved, or small - but either way there's a fierce expression of FUN and that's what we're about. Here's a video of a big flash mob in Stockholm last year - their choice of Michael Jackson is perfect - the King of Choreography (yeah, ok and Pop) lives on in the streets!
Wouldn't the library be a perfect place for a flash mob? Hint hint...;)
