Neighborhood

experimental-signage

Today, we’re launching out new ways to give our neighborhoods the hyper-local mobile signage they desperately need. The truth of the matter is that our local entrepreneurs are getting lost in the noise and swamped in the spam. These right-around-the-corner small business owners would love to reach out to you in an authentic and open manner, but the thing is they just can’t be heard anymore. The ruckus currently is deafening and desensitizing. Even if your business is trusted and well respected in our local circles, we simply do not have the time nor energy nor willingness to read your facebook posts or direct messages or really any other form of communication. We’re already inundated with the most inane buzzfeed videos and twitter follower salesmen and push notifications saying that our apps really haven’t seen us as often as they would like. Sorry, we love you and will most definitely miss you in the neighborhood when you’re gone, but we’re really busy tracking our Amazon order to see if it’s still on-time.

Mobile

Roadtrip Rolls On

This picture offers a friendly reminder that local mobile is ever changing. What used to carry the small business owner back and forth to the shop and to his or her customers is probably not working as well as it used to. In fact, it may even be so broken that you have resigned yourself and are now considering nothing more than turning the old way into a roadside art attraction. Just saying it can happen to even the best of Cadillacs.

We’re now out and about exploring with small business owners some new ideas how to make lemonade out of lemons. See the change that is happening can be the worst thing that ever happened or the best thing depending solely on whether or not you find new ways to change too.

We’re not saying it is gonna be easy. We’re just saying it is gonna be.

Denver

Big Blue Bear

Denver is known everywhere for being wide open to experimentation. From its very earliest days, people from everywhere have come to the front range searching to go a different direction. Today is the new day to lay stake to your claim and change the course.

Cool things are happening in local small businesses throughout Denver each and everyday. For further info, check out the Cyphr space

Where are we tripN?

Actionroadtrip

We’re heading out into theSpace full throttle. This means wherever we find an opportunity to map up and head out, we’re gone before the next sunrise. Where are we tripN? Where should we trip? We’re open to all suggestions and just waiting for a reason. Let us know, we’re packing up as we type.

Local

love

Spreading the love going door to door. We will go anywhere we’re requested to come and share the way that we’ve found to Owderblue.

We do so for a number of reasons.

First, we know what it was like. We have experienced the sense of desperation and loneliness that breaks our heart for fellow sufferers. We have experienced the effects that accompany the illness. Broken relationships, broken promises, broken finances, broken spirits. We know the road.

We have a pretty good line on what happened too. We can share with some clarity on when we began to see a change. We have seen a similar path walked by a number of other people which lends some confidence that this is a route that can be tried by most of us. We can share the solution that we’ve found working as we approach on a daily basis.

Finally, we go wherever because we can’t contain our gratitude. We have been hopeless. Now, we have hope. We are open to receive any invitation to share this hope with others.

Beach

Beach

Pull up a lounge chair and pluck a spot here in the shade under the thatch. Listen to the waves as they splish, splash, and crash onto the sands. Check out the photography vendors with their monkey set to pose for your modeling premiere. There are only a couple other spots in all the world that measure up to the people watching sport one finds on the beach.

For future reference:

Fire engine red skin does not equate to tan and is less attractive.
Free, unlimited cocktails are not meant to be consumed all in one setting.
European suits are made for european-dieted bodies, not for burger kings.
It is easier to walk after you rinse the salt and sand out of your shorts.

Every day COULD be like this one. Why do we choose to space these out into vacations? Wonder if the monkey photographer has openings for an apprentice?

Rocks

Rocks

We must go out. We simply must. We’re wired to go head first into the waves and push the adventure envelope.

But, with every good thing comes risk. And with every risk taken, the chances improve that sooner or later you’re going to lose. And when you do, welcome to the rocks.

Yes, they hurt. Yes, there is some pain, broken bones, and lost wages. Yes, there is probably even some hospital and court visits to be had if you take up the journey. Could we have done it differently? Probably not, we didn’t know better. Could we have avoided it all together? Yes, by not going out. But, where’s the life in that? Let’s go out, take our bumps and bruises along the way, and not shy away too much the next time. It’s just better this way! Bring on the waves, bring on the rocks, we’re all-in.

Cove

Cove

There are days and spots where you’re convinced that you’re going to arrive. Those days where you find that place, that zone. Those days where you breathe it in and know it may not last but it was worth every penny and scar to stand here even for a moment. This is one of those places.
