The Problem of Leisure…
…What to do for pleasure?
And by the way, what the fuck were you thinking, Tila Tequila?
Choosing Whats-His-Haircut over the adorable, lovable Dani? Dani has dimples. I almost left Father Guido for her, five times. I mean, take the sweetest girl with boyish charm, and roll her up in layers of humility and heroism (she’s a firefighter) and puppies and bunnies…How could you not go for that? I am completely gay for Dani. Tila, you cried from happiness on dates with Dani. You gave Dani’s grandmother a lap dance, for god’s sake! Doesn’t that mean anything to you? You floozy!
Here’s what our Donnybrookites got goin on this weekend. We’ve got a short list due to the holidays, or our belligerent protests of the holidays, or a combination of both. We’re brief, but we mean business. So, what are you doing, Father Guido?
Hangin’ with the highly distinguished ‘rents. Taking the whole Sarducci family to the Bluebird for the Hot IQs/Cat-a-Tac Christmas show Saturday. Maybe catching a flick at the new Cinema Flix Cafe Sunday night.
Editor’s note: Donnybrookites normally don’t approve of the term “‘rents,” or contractions in general, but we’ll let this one slide due to the Father’s excellent Snobcasts lately.
The Bartender (who’s BACK!!!):
Larimer Lounge Xmas party is tonight FREE and free drinks if you’re special with
Machine Gun Blues, Sleeperhorse, DJ Michael Trundle and Magic Cyclops. Let’s deck the halls with passed-out drunks. Falalala lalalala.
Madden Madrid McClintock:
friday night: flobots at the falcon.
saturday night: kingdom of fucking magic at the hi-dizzle.
Editor’s note: The Editor can’t be bothered this week to do things like “capitalize.”
Col. Hector Bravado:
Of all the Colonel’s vices, cigarettes seem to be the most deadly and pervasive. And I just realized it’s been a long time, 14 years, since I bought my first pack of Marlboro Light 100s while on break from a busboy shift at the now-defunct Normandy on Colfax. 14 years. All of a sudden the days of oxygen tanks or having your throat cut out don’t seem like such wildly distant possibilities. This Sunday, I’ll be heading to my first Nicotine Anonymous meeting at Our Savior Lutheran Church on 9th Ave. Keep me in your prayers.
Editor’s note: Donnybrookites only pray to porcelain gods.
And this is the place to be on Christmas Eve…
What better way to spend Christmas Eve than with Heeb Magazine? HEEBONISM Denver takes place at The Loft Denver on Christmas Eve, featuring a live performance by New York City’s own Team Facelift. Blending deep-house and glam rock, the trio of Fat Jew, Karim Fonda (a.k.a. Alden Pact) and Machine was recently named MTV’s Artist of the Week and are set to explode in 2008. Team Facelift lists their moms, cocaine and Hasidic Jews among their influences and vow “to do to rap what Elton John did to being gay.” (opening act, DJ Klaw).
Date: Monday, December 24

Location: The Loft Denver, 821 22nd Street, Denver
Tickets: $25 in advance at Midnightatthemerage.com, $36 at the door
Wellll, that’s about it. I’m going to go cry on my Dani bedsheets, and maybe gaze at my Dani posters.
