Day 1 2011 Outdoor Retailer Opens For Business

And so the chaos begins. I headed down to the Salt Palace; about an hour late because I wanted to grab my Sundance press credential beforehand. That way I could stay down at the show and not have to rush back before Headquarters closed at 6 p.m. One of these days it would be nice if the OR folks clued in and moved the event to a weekend that doesn't conflict with Sundance or the Ski Industries of America show in Denver (that one starts next Wednesday).

Day Two of the Wizarding World of Gadgets at CES

Nothing like starting your morning with a computer engineer talking your ear off about what's going into the cars of our future. Huh? Where's my coffee?? We headed to the outdoor arena where a company called Visteon had gathered their latest prototypes to display to car manufacturers like Chevy, Ford, Hyundai, et al.

As we said in the current issue of Salt Lake Magazine, Stevens is definitely worth a listen - intelligent, interesting, fantastical. The show is sold out, but I'm a firm believer in "anything's possible." The show starts at 8 p.m.. Read More

Tyler Hilton: Concert Review, Video, Interview, All For You

Elvis in Walk the Line, sure, but it's hard to believe Tyler Hilton played surly Murphy in the 2007 indie flick, Charlie Bartlett. Hilton played the school bully, complete with mohawk and fisty-cuffs at the ready. Don't get me wrong, Hilton's acting was great, but you couldn't find a nicer actor out there, and especially one who's also a singer/songwriter who doesn't just pen his own music, but who writes uplifting, the-world-is-your-oyster lyrics to boot.
