Fall colors for your viewing pleasure

Welcome to Autumn in Colorado and fall foliage has already begun to show up in some parts of the state - particularly in the high country.

Peak color in the mountains occurs during the last week of September and first week of October -- but also varies by Mountain Zone. In other words, fall color starts to emerge first in the Northern Mountains, then works its way south through the Central Mountains then finally into the Southern Mountains.

Warmer weather typically slows the emergence of color overall. Well-timed bouts of cooler weather helps speed the process along. We don't want bitter cold though.

We'll soon experience an "Indian Summer," and then more consistent snows will hit above treeline. This contrast - between snow and fall colors - will provide for the best photos of the season.

Location Suggestions for Viewing Fall Color:

*Rocky Mountain National Park
*Mount Evans
*Rabbit Ears Pass
*Grand Mesa
*Kenosha Pass
*Cottonwood Pass
*Aspen Area
*Vail Valley
*Tennessee Pass
*Crested Butte
*San Juan Mountains around Telluride
*Lake City Area
*Keblar Pass

A pretty cool Beatles/Queen "Mashup"

Classic rock and other genres have been getting a makeover thanks in part to some innovative D-Js in cyberspace. The songs are called mash-ups, which are two or more songs by different artists that are combined into one. One of the more entertaining ones features the vocals to The Beatles' "Dear Prudence" and "The Fool on the Hill" laid over a bed of Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." Queen guitarist Brian May, who heard it, writes on his website [BrianMay.com], "I have to say it's very entertaining. How amazing it would have been to have John Lennon and Paul McCartney sing with us." But, he's quick to add that "whoever did this, don't go taking this as an official Queen approval. Queen will probably come after you with a rolling pin...also the Beatles. Ha ha!"  Audio here...DEAR PRUDENCE-CRAZY LITTLE THING-FOOL ON THE HILL MASHUP

A "touching" tribute to the TSA

It's one of the new world indignities we are all subject to when flying the used to be friendly skies...getting felt up by the TSA.  Today on The List I chose 5 songs to be played in a mocking tribute to the process, not the people.  The final song chosen is meant to be our protest anthem against the perhaps necessary but highly unpleasant procedure.  I hope you'll embrace it! See Me, Feel Me, Touch Me-The Who Touch Me-The Doors Invisible Touch-Genesis Lovin', Touchin" Squeezin'-Journey And finally, in our attempt to preserve some piece of dignity and apparently self awareness...I Touch Myself-The Divinyls

That's a pricey ride!

Bruce Springsteen's first car, a yellow 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible with flames on the hood and side, has been auctioned off online for $468,000. He bought it on May 21st, 1975 for $2,000, and reportedly wrote the lyrics for "Born to Run," "Thunder Road" and "Backstreets" in it. Included in the sale were the original vehicle registration, temporary insurance card and Allstate insurance card in Springsteen's name. The car is currently on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Springsteen sold the car in 1976 and bought a 1960 black Corvette, which he still owns.

Livid isn't a strong enough word

It started as a girl fight at Denver's Kepner Middle School.  "The little girl grabbed her hair and yanked her down to the ground" says Danielle Espinoza, but what happened next to her 13 year old daughter crossed the line.  Danielle says a female school counselor, a male staff member and a male police officer strip searched her 8th grade daughter after they found a pipe in her backpack.  "To find out she was asked to remove her shirt in front of two males...I don't think that's appropriate" said the girls mother. Denver Public Schools has a policy which reads, "searches shall be limited to the student's pockets, any object in the students possession..and/or a pat down of the student's clothing.  No strip-searches shall be carried out."  It wasn't until a local TV station jumped on the story that the school took the complaints seriously.  Thoughts-As a parent, I couldn't get down to that school fast enough to handle such an obvious breach of supervisory conduct.  It has to be appalling to all of us that these intrusions into our personal dignity continue to be a day to day occurrence.  What is the logical rationalization for such an action?  There is none.  We can't condone the young girls actions in this particular incident just as we cannot allow this personally invasive over-reaction on the part of school officials to stand without consequences.  I am all for accountability and it remains to be seen what steps the school takes to make sure the proper discipline is doled out in this incident.  We need to let them know we are watching.

Mt. Rushmore of Rock-80's Edition!

Day two saw the Mountain rock sculptors carving in the images of U2-Van Halen-Bruce Springsteen-The Police and Michael Jackson.  These artists so honored for their contributions to music and pop culture in the 80's. It was a very uneven decade for music.  There was the second British invasion, with bands like The Thompson Twins, Eurythmics and Tears for Fears.  Canada gave us Bryan Adams and of course...Men Without Hats.  Pop Music, New Wave, Glam Metal Hair Bands and...wait for it...wait...Christopher Cross.  Like I said, uneven.  Tomorrow it's a much easier as I'll make my selection from the 60's!

Mt. Rushmore of Rock-70's

Today on The List I carved out my Mt. Rushmore of Rock for the 70's...so many performers, so little space.  My choices grace the mountain based on their sheer legendary status and their impact on music history in the 70's.  Since "The List" is confined to 5 each day I had to leave off many deserving candidates.  My list is as follows, what would you do? Elton John, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles and Stevie Wonder...let me have it!

Class, Pride and Intelligence hard at work

Grant Hill’s Response to Jalen Rose
By GRANT HILL
Grant Hill currently plays for the Phoenix Suns.Associated Press Grant Hill currently plays for the Phoenix Suns.
“The Fab Five,” an ESPN film about the Michigan basketball careers of Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson from 1991 to 1993, was broadcast for the first time Sunday night. In the show, Rose, the show’s executive producer, stated that Duke recruited only black players he considered to be “Uncle Toms.” Grant Hill, a player on the Duke team that beat Michigan in the 1992 Final Four, reflected on Rose’s comments. I am a fan, friend and longtime competitor of the Fab Five. I have competed against Jalen Rose and Chris Webber since the age of 13. At Michigan, the Fab Five represented a cultural phenomenon that impacted the country in a permanent and positive way. The very idea of the Fab Five elicited pride and promise in much the same way the Georgetown teams did in the mid-1980s when I was in high school and idolized them. Their journey from youthful icons to successful men today is a road map for so many young, black men (and women) who saw their journey through the powerful documentary, “The Fab Five.” It was a sad and somewhat pathetic turn of events, therefore, to see friends narrating this interesting documentary about their moment in time and calling me a bitch and worse, calling all black players at Duke “Uncle Toms” and, to some degree, disparaging my parents for their education, work ethic and commitment to each other and to me. I should have guessed there was something regrettable in the documentary when I received a Twitter apology from Jalen before its premiere. I am aware Jalen has gone to some length to explain his remarks about my family in numerous interviews, so I believe he has some admiration for them. In his garbled but sweeping comment that Duke recruits only “black players that were ‘Uncle Toms,’ ” Jalen seems to change the usual meaning of those very vitriolic words into his own meaning, i.e., blacks from two-parent, middle-class families. He leaves us all guessing exactly what he believes today. I am beyond fortunate to have two parents who are still working well into their 60s. They received great educations and use them every day. My parents taught me a personal ethic I try to live by and pass on to my children. I come from a strong legacy of black Americans. My namesake, Henry Hill, my father’s father, was a day laborer in Baltimore. He could not read or write until he was taught to do so by my grandmother. His first present to my dad was a set of encyclopedias, which I now have. He wanted his only child, my father, to have a good education, so he made numerous sacrifices to see that he got an education, including attending Yale. This is part of our great tradition as black Americans. We aspire for the best or better for our children and work hard to make that happen for them. Jalen’s mother is part of our great black tradition and made the same sacrifices for him. My teammates at Duke — all of them, black and white — were a band of brothers who came together to play at the highest level for the best coach in basketball. I know most of the black players who preceded and followed me at Duke. They all contribute to our tradition of excellence on the court. It is insulting and ignorant to suggest that men like Johnny Dawkins (coach at Stanford), Tommy Amaker (coach at Harvard), Billy King (general manager of the Nets), Tony Lang (coach of the Mitsubishi Diamond Dolphins in Japan), Thomas Hill (small-business owner in Texas), Jeff Capel (former coach at Oklahoma and Virginia Commonwealth), Kenny Blakeney (assistant coach at Harvard), Jay Williams (ESPN analyst), Shane Battier (Memphis Grizzlies) and Chris Duhon (Orlando Magic) ever sold out their race. To hint that those who grew up in a household with a mother and father are somehow less black than those who did not is beyond ridiculous. All of us are extremely proud of the current Duke team, especially Nolan Smith. He was raised by his mother, plays in memory of his late father and carries himself with the pride and confidence that they instilled in him. The sacrifice, the effort, the education and the friendships I experienced in my four years are cherished. The many Duke graduates I have met around the world are also my “family,” and they are a special group of people. A good education is a privilege. Just as Jalen has founded a charter school in Michigan, we are expected to use our education to help others, to improve life for those who need our assistance and to use the excellent education we have received to better the world. A highlight of my time at Duke was getting to know the great John Hope Franklin, John B. Duke Professor of History and the leading scholar of the last century on the total history of African-Americans in this country. His insights and perspectives contributed significantly to my overall development and helped me understand myself, my forefathers and my place in the world. Ad ingenium faciendum, toward the building of character, is a phrase I recently heard. To me, it is the essence of an educational experience. Struggling, succeeding, trying again and having fun within a nurturing but competitive environment built character in all of us, including every black graduate of Duke. My mother always says, “You can live without Chaucer and you can live without calculus, but you cannot make it in the wide, wide world without common sense.” As we get older, we understand the importance of these words. Adulthood is nothing but a series of choices: you can say yes or no, but you cannot avoid saying one or the other. In the end, those who are successful are those who adjust and adapt to the decisions they have made and make the best of them. I caution my fabulous five friends to avoid stereotyping me and others they do not know in much the same way so many people stereotyped them back then for their appearance and swagger. I wish for you the restoration of the bond that made you friends, brothers and icons. I am proud of my family. I am proud of my Duke championships and all my Duke teammates. And, I am proud I never lost a game against the Fab Five. Grant Henry Hill Phoenix Suns Duke ‘94  Dan's Thoughts-I haven't seen the ESPN film but intend to.  The 30/30 series on our leading sports network has been a fascinating series of examinations dealing with many of the important stories in sports over the past few decades.  If you haven’t watched them, I highly recommend them.  Grant's letter impressed upon me the power of parents who model successful behavior, the importance of extended education, the beauty of a well crafted stream of thought and finally the strength of character it takes to say what needs to be said without injecting any superfluous vitriol.  A quality education at home and at Duke has obviously served Grant Hill well.

Holy Used Car Batman!

Batmobile from Batman Forever. Image via Wikipedia 
Batman Forever was arguably the best of the Batman series redux: We had skinny Val Kilmer, young Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Tommy Lee Jones. You get the picture.  The car used to promote that film has not aged quite as nicely (or at least as stolidly) as some of its co-stars–the styling isn’t exactly “classically beautiful”–but if you’re a Batman junkie, today’s your lucky day: Auctions America by RM is offering the 1995 Batmobile Batman Forever at its March 4 sale in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.  The car was built in Australia with a fiberglass body and a custom chassis. Its cost $2.5 million to make the body mold alone, plus an extra $300,000 to actually build the thing–which is in proper running condition, RM says. The auction catalog estimate lists it at $200,000-$275,000.  But there is a catch. Warner Brothers must approve the winning bidder before the sale is considered final, and WB can refuse any buyer it doesn’t fancy. It’s largely a formality, spokeswoman Kerrey Kerr-Enskat told me–WB just wants to make sure you won’t be using the Batmobile to promote, say, a Batman movie of your own. I got to thinking about all the movie and television "mobiles" we have seen over the years.  The "Monkee-Mobile", The Munsters car, the original Batmobile...what's your favorite?  Mine is a recent addition to the pantheon of movie and television cars...Black Beauty from the new Green Hornet Movie.

Bob Dylan Pizza Scammer Pays!

The man who posed as a Bob Dylan roadie last month and ordered 178 pizzas from an Amherst, Massachusetts restaurant but never picked them up has agreed to pay for the pies and apologize to the restaurant's owners. Police haven't revealed the man's name because the deal precludes it from becoming a criminal case. But the lawyer for the 42-year-old East Brunswick, New Jersey man tells the Amherst Bulletin, "My client regretted what he did and thought he did something out of character for himself."

The pizza tab ran $3,900, not including the big tip the fake roadie promised if the workers stayed past their 2:00 a.m. closing time to make the pizzas. 

Okay, fess up...what is one of your all time great pranks?

Happy Birthday John...

I have posted this clip of the new film about John Lennon's youth. It's called Nowhere Boy. Why, it's an excercise in understanding the upbringing that forged the legend. You must admire the honesty of John who always said in public, what he thought in private. Your thoughts on John?

Scary Classsic Movies

First comment, I'm surprised the sensors of the day (1954) let this photo fly!  The Creature From The Black Lagoon is for me, the scariest movie of my childhood.  I found out in later years that "The Creature" seen here having a heart to heart with Julie Adams, is actually a vegetarian and a world class quilt maker. But as Bill Murray once said in Meatballs..."It just doesn't matter, it just doesn't matter".  Creature is easily one of the all time scary classics that is actually....wait for it...SCARY!  What would you add to this list?

First comment, I'm surprised the sensors of the day (1954) let this photo fly!  The Creature From The Black Lagoon is for me, the scariest movie of my childhood.  I found out in later years that "The Creature" seen here having a heart to heart with Julie Adams, is actually a vegetarian and a world class quilt maker. But as Bill Murray once said in Meatballs..."It just doesn't matter, it just doesn't matter".  Creature is easily one of the all time scary classics that is actually....wait for it...SCARY!  What would you add to this list?
