Brian's here!

If any of you follow along to's GCN Radio, then you know who Brian is! If you don't, well, then you probably don't.

Anyway, he came out to Colorado for a bit of a vacation, with a special request to see the mountains (poor boy is from Indiana!) He got in yesterday and today it was beautiful outside, so we drove up to the foothills. The pictures are kinda bad quality (I don't have a proper digital camera, so this is from my cell phone), but we were having fun and Brian was enjoying all of the panoramic views, the nature visitor's center, a creek, and tunnels on the way up the mountainside. I also introduced him to Colorado's favorite mountain pizza--Beau Jo's--in Idaho Springs. The pictures of him at the bottom are at Buffalo Bill's gravesite. Brian really loved getting behind that dress with the gun!

Tonight we rented Rent! I hadn't seen it yet. Wow, what an amazing movie. I would really love to see that on stage. I have a very big love for musical theater (I know I've been told I have to turn in my "lesbian card" for admitting that), and this was just phenomenal. We also watched the documentary about Jonathon Larson, who wrote the musical (and who died at the age of 35 the night before it opened). So powerful. I love documentaries too, so this was just an awesome night to get to watch both of these with a friend.

Tomorrow we're planning to meet up with a few of the Denver GCNers and then come home and watch Crash. Should be good times.

  1. Ahhhhh i understand glad you had fun hope it continues to be amazing for you.....glad to be able to finally catch up on some of whats going on for you.. take care & will catcch u soon,j

  2. Isn't Rent lovely? I love the music so much and last night I had such a treat. At the True Colors coference, Anthony Rap (of Rent) came to the concert to speak and do a Rent sing along.

    He was so generous just standing on the edge of the stage as he invited everyone to stand at the front. Very sweet.

    So glad you are having a good time with Brian. I know you will love Crash too. It is VERY powerful and moving.

  3. You have to let me know what you think of Crash after you see it...

  4. Crap, that would help... your number one fan from South Cacalacky Carolina. I forget how they spell that. Haha.

  5. Yay for Brian. He gets a bit of a holiday and special bonus he gets to spend time with you. Have fun!
