What do you get when you combine one of the most prolific producers of hip-hop and pop with one of the most tortured musicians of this decade and then sprinkle it with one of the strangest artists of our time? A project that was lost and then found again by way of record label red tape and has all the essential elements to present a "Dark Night Of The Soul"......
The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards were held on September 12. Lady Gaga had an impressive 13 nominations and raised eyebrows by attending in an outfit completely made of meat. While she won a total of eight awards, Peter Gabriel still holds the VMA record with 10 wins for "Sledgehammer" in 1987.

Since moving into our new (old) house recently, we've missed our chance to start up a vegetable garden in our backyard. I'm really struggling through the end of summer without my fresh-off-the-vine tomatoes, last minute addition of chile peppers, and warm roasted beets. So lots of my recipes right now are including fresh farmer's market veggies as well as gifts from friends' gardens (Thanks friends!).
My name is Eric Duran. I am an investment banker and was recently named the 9News Leader of the Year. I am proud to say I served on the Denver Public Library Commission from 1996 until 2004. The Denver Public Library was critical to my success and I am honored to share my story.
I grew up in North Denver in a household of six people in a two-bedroom apartment—my family was close. It is not something that I often talk about, but growing up, my mother and sister shared one bedroom and my grandmother and aunt shared the other. My grandfather and I slept in the living room—he slept on the couch and I slept on the floor. My teenage memories are of my grandfather waking me up at 5:30 in the morning to get the Rocky Mountain News and then moving me from the floor to the couch. I learned a love of reading from my grandfather.
