Tooth Fractal Psychedelia: Tyler Densley’s Acid Math

Tooth Fractal Psychedelia: Tyler Densley’s Acid Math
By

“Growing up Mormon and being straight edge most of my life, I had these weird inklings to do hallucinogens,” says Tyler Densley. “I always, in the back of my mind, thought that I would like to hallucinate—be able to see outside of what I know, be able to see a cartoon in my head.” When Densley followed this desire, he found commonalities between what he liked about American traditional tattooing, his fondness for cartoons and his psychedelic experiences. … read more

On Friday, Nov. 18, head down to the Urban Lounge to check out the spaced out, experimental Pretty Worms, the drug-dazed, dirty rock n’ roll of Dark Seas and opener The Rose Phantom. As always, a mere $5 gets you in. … read more

Boyz in the ‘Satch: The DubSatch Collective
By

With the DubSatch Collective’s latest web videos, competition results and print coverage, the world is finally getting to see the latest talent that the Wasatch has cultivated. People have started to realize that these kids had the best lines, built the best jumps and appeared to be having the most fun. I was able to track these guys down and ask them some questions about SLC, the crew and what happens when you show you up to a film contest with no filmer. … read more

Best of CMJ 2011

Best of CMJ 2011
By

In some ways, CMJ Music Marathon is similar to the athletic competition that it shares a name with. Five days of non-stop music requires endurance—a good set of earplugs helps, too. There are a plethora of day parties, industry panels and nighttime showcases crammed into these five days. It’s utterly impossible to experience everything that you want and equally as difficult not to wear yourself down with days that can span from 12 p.m. to as late as 4 or 5 in the morning. … read more

Let It Be.

Josh Martinez has become one of the most dedicated and motivated skate filmers in Utah. His everyday mission is to get up early and stay out all day, filming. He has spots from Las Vegas to Reno and is never short of an idea on where to go. “I just like filming. I love making skateboarding films and working with people that want to skateboard and make something happen,” says Martinez.  It’s this type of determination that has lead to his third film, Let It Be. … read more

Watch Out Barbie, It’s Girl In a Coma
By

In a world where bleached blondes in heels singing high-fructose garbage are rapidly polluting the airwaves, Girl in a Coma is here to save us with a healthy dose of rock n’ roll. Though Girl in a Coma have the talent and drive to gain rock star success without a fairy godmother, the band’s propulsion into stardom is a true Cinderella story—a brown-eyed, guitar-clad Cinderella with an attitude, that is. … read more

Ozzy Henning: Master of Style and Finesse
By

At Park City Mountain Resort, there’s one snowboarder that stands out from the rest, and his name is Ozzy Henning. Henning’s riding has been raising eyebrows around the Salt Lake Valley for nine years, both on a skateboard and a snowboard. Henning looks more at home on a board than he does on his own two feet, and that says a lot when one considers his extremely technical style. … read more

The Copper Onion: Dinner at a Friend’s House

The Copper Onion: Dinner at a Friend’s House
By

If I had to eat out every day, and could only pick one place in town to eat at, it would be The Copper Onion. The Copper Onion’s food flies against the wind of contemporary dining—it is simple, serious and from scratch. While one could complain that it is almost sentimentally traditional—think homemade fruit cream pies and hand-minced meat loaf—it’s tradition from a time passed and a place gone. I feel less like I am in a restaurant, and more that I am at a friend’s house, and they really know how to cook the hell out of cooking. … read more

Thanksgiving is a day I look forward to. I love to cook, and this is the perfect day to show off my culinary talents. I don’t know what it is about this day that turns this night-clubbing diva into a sentimental ‘50s housewife, but I go all out with the formal place settings and a menu that spans the board from the vegan to the pot eater, and ends in an open house cocktail party. … read more
