Phil Turk Band- You and I are Brave

The music on this album is very beautiful and complex. It reminds you of walking in the woods of Colorado on a perfect spring day when all the flowers are blooming and colorful. The flute is a perfect whimsical instrument that takes you on this journey. True to Fort Collins form there is also a hint of country in the twang of the guitar. If that wasn’t Fort Collins enough […]

Sex and the Choice City: The Real Nutcracker

If Tchaikovsky were alive today, he would probably be on Grindr for a wham-bam-thank you, man! After receiving significant feedback from my article about Tinder (also known as the traveling business man’s secret best friend), I was quite certain that I needed to explore another dating app. This time, I wasn’t going to be the one doing it – Grindr is for gay, bi, trans and curious guys.
