Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane

By |October 20th, 2015|Music, Posts|

Ryan Anderson at Foundations Music was kind enough to set us up with a photo pass to see Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane on Monday, October 19. As with all our concert reviews, we take photos, talk about the show, and promote the artists. That is, of course, if they're cool. Unfortunately, we sometimes pass on coverage [...]

Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects – First Book Precision

By |October 20th, 2015|Books, Likes, Posts|

Before we dive into my review of Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects, let's look at the importance of the importance of the debut novel. "We all know each other’s secrets. And we all use them.” Debut novels. There's something special about them, isn't there? Granted, we've all read our fair share of first book flops. However, the debut novel often provides a unique view [...]

Hide and Seek with Lucy

By |October 15th, 2015|Books, Likes, Posts|

Beauty. It’s something that’s hiding everywhere we look. Maybe you don’t see it at first. Maybe you even go weeks with the ugliness of daily life being all that’s apparent. But it’s there, I promise. Forgive me. I’m attempting to redefine a word that is oft used around us to mean that which is sexy, attractive, or money-making. No. These things are [...]

West Magnolia Trail Review: Offroad Excursion

By |August 23rd, 2015|Posts, Travel|

Off-Road Excursion is a new series of articles and videos that will cover the best 4x4 trails in Colorado and beyond. If I've taken my 2011 Tacoma on the trail, I'll add it to the site, hopefully with video. I'll only feature the trails I love and call out the trails I don't. In this inaugural episode of Off-Road Excursion, [...]

Ben Folds Live at Red Rocks – June 21, 2015

By |July 8th, 2015|Music, Posts|

My wife and I spent our 8th wedding anniversary listening to Ben Folds play a concert with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. I'm a music nerd; the only thing that could've made this better for me would be playing with Ben on stage. That didn't happen, but I really wish it did. Maybe next time, Mr. Folds. Seeing Ben Folds Live [...]

How Do I Stop Swaddling My Child?

By |July 8th, 2015|Kids, Posts|

It’s no secret that I loved swaddling my baby from the time he was born. He slept well and didn’t startle himself awake. He was also born in the late fall, so the swaddling kept him snug and warm during the cold nights. Eventually, I knew that I would need to stop swaddling my son, but I found very little [...]

Mae at Summit Music Hall with All Get Out, Mike Mains & The Branches – Concert Review

By |June 16th, 2015|Music, Posts|

On June 8, I went to the Mae show to revisit my college days. You can consider this an anniversary or maybe a reunion show that focuses on my favorite Mae album: The Everglow. I'll dive more into Mae's history later; first, I want to talk about the openers. Mike Mains & The Branches were completely new to me. I saw them [...]

Kamelot and DragonForce at the Ogden – Concert Review

By |May 29th, 2015|Music, Posts|

On Tuesday, May 19, I was lucky enough to snag a press pass for the Kamelot and DragonForce concert at The Ogden in Denver, Colorado. Wow, what a show. Both bands came out swinging with epic power metal riffs and amazing vocals. I've loved and listened to both bands for years. If you have a chance to see this show when [...]

Stackable Cooling Racks: A Great Space Saver

By |May 22nd, 2015|Eats, Likes, Posts|

When I was in college, I had a full kitchen in my dorm. It allowed me to cook whole meals instead of the typical college diet of microwavable foods. It also meant I needed an entire set of kitchen items: pots, pans, baking sheets, and dishes. Since the freshman kitchens had limited counter space, I set out to find compact kitchen [...]

Breakfast Sandwich Maker – Healthier, Tastier than Fast Food

By |April 30th, 2015|Eats, Likes, Posts|

When it comes to breakfast at fast food restaurants, the options are pretty much all the same (as Taco Bell has recently pointed out). After spending countless dollars on these sandwiches, I grew tired of wasting money. I wanted to make breakfast sandwiches at home for cheaper than fast food restaurants; even cheaper than the frozen sandwiches at the grocery store. Who wants frozen [...]

Nightwish, Sabaton, and Delain at the Ogden in Denver – Concert Review

By |April 24th, 2015|Music, Posts|

On Tuesday, April 21, Sean Caspian and I had the opportunity to see Nightwish at the Ogden Theatre here in Denver. We've both been fans for years and wanted to see their new singer, Floor Jansen, slay some epic vocals. We initially snagged our tickets via Enter the Vault during the pre-order and waited the six months until show time. That [...]

Best Baby Monitor for Audio and Video Connections

By |April 24th, 2015|Kids, Likes, Posts|

When I found out I was pregnant, I went crazy with checklists. By the third trimester, we had almost everything on our lists. The one thing we couldn't decide, however, was the best baby monitor. Do we spend $30 on a cheap audio-only monitor with poor quality? Is it worth spending $200 or more on a single-function video monitor that we’ll [...]

Elder Scrolls Online – Armor Dying Tutorial and Crown Store Walkthrough

By |April 13th, 2015|Gaming, Videos|

As I play through The Elder Scrolls Online, I wanted to create a few video guides that show off some of the less obvious things in the game. Follow the eciov YouTube channel for more content like this. In the video below, I show you how the in-game armor dying system works. The dye stations can be hard to find, but they add a completely new dimension to [...]

Elder Scrolls Online – Crafting, Banking, and Recommended Add-Ons

By |April 7th, 2015|Gaming, Videos|

I recently sat down with Sean Caspian in the eciov studio to record the inaugural episode of the eciov Gamecast. We'll still be doing our MunnDay@9 gaming podcast like normal, but I wanted to start doing some Twitch live-streaming and game videos for some of my favorite games. The pair of us could cover hundreds of games, but I'm starting with The Elder [...]

Best Water Bottle for Leach-Free Drinking – Updated 2017

By |March 9th, 2015|Likes, Posts|

I don't necessarily look like the kind of guy who would review water bottles, but I have a very good reason for my obsession: I live in Colorado. I'll explain why my location plays an important role in this best water bottle recommendation shortly. I just want to stress why it's important I make the best recommendation possible. That's why I'm taking [...]

Best Casserole Carrier for Potlucks

By |March 7th, 2015|Likes, Posts|

When I was growing up, we’d attend potlucks at least once a month. I loved it! It was like eating at a free buffet. Of course, the best part was the dessert table. My mouth waters just thinking of it! It was always fun to decide what to bring to the potluck and to see what deliciousness was waiting on those [...]
