Trapped Inside Late Night TV

Ahhh the Fall time, brisk cool air, back to school for the youngsters and of course the start of the new TV season.  There's more than a handful of shows that'll be keeping my attention this season and I'm sure the same for you guys as well.

Nigel Sylvester 'GO'

One of the most creative and 'do his own thing' guys in the world of BMX is hands down Nigel Sylvester.  He recently shot this first person look video of him riding the streets and wilding out in NYC.

Arcade Legends

As kids without a care in the world, hanging out with friends is the easiest and most enjoyable thing to do when passing the day away.  As adults there's a bit more planning that needs to go into scheduling meet ups with fellow big kids.  Everyone is on the clock and have busy work schedules, weather it be the 9 to 5, the endless hours spent in the studio or crazy travel schedules.  But once a month a few friends get together for boys night out to drink a few beers, talk life, drop a few case quarters in the machines and just relax.  Our usual hangout is of course, Barcade.  It's what each of us grew up on so it's the perfect place to reflect on the past while enjoying the present time.

As we get older and time slowly ticks away, there's nothing like kicking it with friends who you value most in your life.

Ophelia's - A Unique Denver Experience

Over the years I've DJ'd at a lot of venues of varying types.  From the high end to the underground, from the worn out let it run as it is to the "we took great care in how we wanted to design our business" venues.  This past Saturday while in Denver I got to spin at what definitely has to be a very unique and now one of my favorite places to not only work, but enjoy.  Ophelia's is a new venue (only open 5-6 months) and located in the only section of the city that black Jazz musicians were allowed to play.  The venue itself was a former brothel, peep show and porn book store and the owners kept it historically and visually correct when designing it.  After 3 years of excavations and renovations Ophelia's opened and now serves as an intimate venue with a unique dining and musical experience.  From what I've been told by the managers, the owner is a big collector of many of the things that I'm into and collect which is why the venue features original nude black light velvet curtains, framed sexploitation posters and vintage pinball backglass artwork used to decorate the bar top.  The first thing I thought of when taking a walk around was classic NYC Time Square 42nd Street where anything goes and they definitely captured that vibe perfectly!

With a full dining experience, amazing food, great drinks, musical entertainment and one of the friendliest staffs I've ever worked with all under one roof, there's no wonder why Ophelia's is quickly making a name for itself in the city and is definitely something I've yet to see anywhere else here in the states. Definitely looking forward to making a return to soak in even more.
