Get Extreme n Hip Hop With Me!

While my travels very rarely take me into the world of extreme sports, I've come across, from a friendly suggestion, this awesome looking event/video premiere  and i am going to have to insist that you show your faces and get a lil extreme with me!!!
Plus, it has good music.... and you know me, if it has good jams, i'm so there! 

"Tristan Minton, local graffiti artist, skateboard designer (Never Summer), skateboarder and director has been rolling with Denver skate crew, DTS for a long time. Finally, the project he has been working on for what seems like ages, has been completed. H-DTS, a skate video featuring most of the DTS crew, will be premiering on Saturday, December 29th at Bobbo! Warehouse (4120 E. Brighton Blvd. Unit B13). The impressive roster includes: Julian Christianson, (sponsored skateboarder with a list of contest wins and accolades), Cody Schulze, Andrew Smith, Travis Emmite, Phil Hanson, Spencer Semien, and Wyatt Milhollan.

The first showing will be at 7 p.m. sharp with a second showing at 10 p.m. This event is sponsored by Royal Stain, 303 Boards, Boppo! Warehouse, DC Shoes, and KR3W Denim.

Not unlike the Colorado hip-hop community, the Colorado skate world has many talented individuals just dying to get their name out there. Stop by the premier of this no doubt extremely dope video and support an underground community much like your own."

Tragedy to Triumph


Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.

they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."
