Loops: Week 253

Loops is a Tuesday night bike ride through out central Denver. The ride covers approximately 15 to 20 miles and makes 3 to 4 stops along the way. Riders are encouraged to ride at their own pace and meet at the stops that are posted on xrocksthespot.com. The ride usually meets every Tuesday night at Crema Coffee House (29th & Larimer), Tonight we’re going to meet at Larimer Lounge (27th & Larimer.) Come out and ride with us, make friends, and have a good time.

There will be no map this week. We may end up riding in parking garages to keep dry.

THE SKELETON SHOW @ 10 p.m.
"I’ll tell you about punk rock: punk rock is a word used by dilettantes and, uh… and, uh… heartless manipulators, about music… that takes up the energies, and the bodies, and the hearts and the souls and the time and the minds, of young men, who give what they have to it, and give everything they have to it. And it’s a… it’s a term that’s based on contempt; it’s a term that’s based on fashion, style, elitism, satanism, and, everything that’s rotten about rock ‘n’ roll.'"

Making Colorado

There are so many friends in this video I just had to share it. You guys rule!

ML Leather

I was just recently turned on to ML Leather out of Huston, TX. They have some really unique wallets, bags, and accessories. The craftsmanship is absolutely exquisite. You can really tell that the folks over at ML Leather take a lot of time in making these one at a time with their loving hands.

Here is what they have to say about their work:

"Every Stitch Counts
We do not use machines, every stitch is done by hand.

Cruelty Free
All Leather that we use is from natural death! For more info email us.

Sweatshop Free
Besides our sweat! We do not believe in putting others into slavery or poverty because a country has high demands of a product they could make themselves.

Materials:
Most of the stuff used is either roadkill, ground scores or renewed trash.

WE ENCOURAGE BARTERING AND HAGGLING."
