Dick's Fine Foods

I have no idea. This abandoned place on Division near 32nd was long gone before I lived here but the sign was super-charming so I Photoshopped it back to life because that's the sort of thing I do sometimes.
Does anyone remember this place at all? Air conditioning! After this I'm going to go check into a motel with color TV!

Reggae Sunsplash '89

I randomly heard some reggae music while on a road trip this summer and it took my mind back to an event I went to back in 1989 called Reggae Sunsplash. It took place in Johnson park in Wyoming. I ended up there because a guy who went by the name Rastaman Nane' had come to the local public access TV station GRTV looking for somebody to shoot video of the event.  At that point I was very active down there and agreed to do it because it sounded like fun. 

Anyway, it occurred to me that I must still have the tape someplace and sure enough, I did.  Here is a short I edited together to put online from about 2 hours worth of footage. Hope some people enjoy this time-portal to a summer long ago!
