    You know what I love...

    ...I love the big towers with flashing red lights in Golden. You know what? I'm living with a friend whos' apartment is located directly infront of them. Only thing between us and them is a water storage unit and small shed. Kind of cool to have the beginning of the Rocky Mountains in your back yard.

    What else do you love about the Front Range? I just moved here and want to know all things that make this place amazing.

    I love being able to choose your season. You can snowboard or bike nearly any day of the year in this state.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    Blue skies and puppies. Hillary may disagree. Oh, yeah, being able to live in the middle of a Front Range city and having a mountain lion on your rear porch, fangs out ready to pounce.
    So it seems to me to be, this thing that I think I see.

    All the above. well, except for casa bonita.... Their food is totally sketchy! It's awesome to wake up in the morn with an 8 pt buck looking in your window, or watching a fox skirt across your yard thru the trees, or hear that a black bear was sighted on the trail that's basically out my back door, or to be able to go snowboarding in the morning and then come back down to do a little cycling (road or mtn) on the same day......

    Athalliah, how rude pointing out xcguy's big butt.

    The thing I love about living here is telling other people not to move here because it is getting too crowded.
    The door was totally closed after I move in.

    I love living away from the towers. Six years underneath their destructo rays - just lucky the tumors don't hit the handle bars until I stand up.

    I love thinking that since I was raised here in CO that I am superior to animals and better at sports than lowlanders.

    And I love you, maybe

    I love living in West Lakewood. Singletrack within 1/4 mile of my door, plenty of parks that I can ride my girls to on bikepaths, resturants I can ride to on bike paths, cool peeps, and close access to the big mountains for a short drive in the car. And the local brew is descent too. No it ain't Coors that I'm talking about either.

    hmm....http://www.gcbrewery.com/

    Golden City Brewery was founded in 1993 by two geologists, Charlie & Janine Sturdavant. They filled the old machine shop behind their historic Golden home with used dairy tanks and Charlie began brewing German-style ales. The tasting room was originally located in the sunroom of their house and provided Red Ale and Pale Ale to the local community in 1/2 gallon growlers and kegs.

    Look kids, it is a drinking town with a science problem!

    Derek Trucks- (born June 8, 1979) is a Grammy Award-nominated American guitarist.[1] He first attracted the attention of the music industry as an 11-year old child prodigy on the guitar, playing with his uncle, drummer Butch Trucks, in the Allman Brothers Band. He toured with them and finally became an "official" member in 1999. That same year, he met blues singer Susan Tedeschi, and the two married in 2001, beginning a family. He has continued playing with the The Derek Trucks Band, which he founded at age 15.
    Trucks is known best for his dexterity and speciality as a slide guitarist, his familiarity and interest in integrating a wide variety of musical genres, and his stoic focus while performing on stage. He has played with a number of jam bands and rock musicians, as a member of The Allman Brothers Band, and he continues to perform as both guitarist and bandleader of The Derek Trucks Band, guesting with artists on tour, in festivals, and recording sessions.




    My Favorite Things- is a 1961 jazz album by John Coltrane. It is considered by many jazz critics and listeners to be a highly significant and historic recording. It was the first session recorded by Coltrane on the Atlantic label, the first to introduce his new quartet featuring McCoy Tyner (Piano), Elvin Jones (Drums) and Steve Davis (Bass) - neither Jimmy Garrison nor Reggie Workman featured as yet.
    The album was also the first to quite clearly mark Coltrane's change from Bebop to Free Jazz which was slowly becoming apparent in some of Coltrane's previous releases. It introduces complex harmonic reworkings of such songs as "My Favorite Things", and "But Not For Me". Additionally, at a time when the soprano saxophone was considered obsolete, it demonstrated Coltrane's further investigation of the instrument's capabilities in a jazz idiom.
    The title track is a modal rendition of the Richard Rodgers/Oscar Hammerstein's seminal song My Favorite Things from The Sound of Music.
    (Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
    Doorbells and sleighbells
    And schnitzel with noodles
    Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
    Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
    Silver white winter that melts into spring
    These are a few of my favorite things

    When the dog bites
    When the bee stings
    When I'm feeling sad
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And then I don't feel...so bad)
    The melody is heard numerous times throughout the almost 14-minute version, and instead of soloing over the written chord changes, both Tyner and Coltrane taking extended solos over vamps of the two tonic chords, E minor and E major. Tyner's solo is famous for being extremely chordal and rhythmic, as opposed to developing melodies.

    I know a woman that used to dive there about 15 years ago. Don't think she is all that hairy, but whatever, you may be a manscaper and that's okay too.

    I love Jeffco Open Space trails. I've lived in Golden, Arvada and Evergreen and have always been able to hit a trail without driving.
