Everyone is happy

It must be something in the chicken

By Matt Cortina
Everyone is happy at The Post. On a Friday afternoon, three cooks are laughing behind the bakery counter. When I return a week later, three new cooks — or who knows — are laughing again. The waiters, too, are all happy. Not the giddy, storemandated affability that drives you nuts. Just the calm joy of a person who’s happy to be at work. Happiness inhabits the place, an old VFW that was chicly remodeled and restored into a post-industrial lodge. It keeps smiles on the faces of the folks who have to wait tables and the folks who have to wait for tables.

Goodbye to all of that

Beyond the end with ‘Goodbye to Language’

By Michael J. Casey
In 1960, Jean-Luc Godard revolutionized cinema. Breathless wasn’t just a break from the old ways of filmmaking, it was as if cinema had cracked off and begun again. Seven years later, Godard concluded Weekend with the title card, “Fin... de cinema.” It was a cheeky moment, but for the French critic turned filmmaker, it had razor sharp teeth. Now the 84-yearold director is back with another entry into his ever-evolving theory of cinema and this time around he tackles the money-grubbing gimmick of 3-D. Only in the hands of Godard, it isn’t a gimmick, it’s just another arrow in his quiver.

Please sir, may I have my job?

‘Two Days, One Night’ pits poor versus poor

By Ryan Syrek
Sit down, Sartre. Writers/directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne get it a bit more right: Hell isn’t just other people. Hell is asking other people to surrender their bonuses so you can keep your job. Two Days, One Night is a harrowing social allegory, a dramatic minimization of a growing socioeconomic reality. The bosses of the world are greedily devouring an ever-expanding amount of wealth, leaving the impoverished to fight each other for table scraps. It is undignified, disgusting and downright heartbreaking to watch human beings alternate between fighting and begging each other for basic survival needs.

Poetry

Mordy makes for to exercise and it just does. A body what it machine. Where it creak he sluck the studs. Tell me do you visit lately? Your body over wine? Love eyes itself in the machine lovely. His muscles loose like a gum. Everything hum. What gumbles haply in the blood.

Listen

Houndmouth’s creation was a matter of the right place at the right time. The band, hailing from southern Indiana, started off as loose friends, each with a different musical background — a mix of blues, Motown, acoustic, classic rock and bluegrass. Houndmouth’s music lies in that sweet spot between alternative, country and folk.

Celebrate

The baobab tree has been a symbol of community in West Africa for generations. People gather under it to drum, dance, sing and tell stories. The BaoBao festival celebrates this tradition and has been bringing African flavor to Colorado for 12 years. On March 3, head to Shine Restaurant for some festivities from the statewide festival.

Learn

Not many people know what it’s like to walk on the moon. Luckily, the Distinguished Speakers Board is bringing Buzz Aldrin to Boulder to enlighten the rest of us. Aldrin was the lunar module pilot on the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. He was the second person to walk on the moon, following Neil Armstrong’s one small step for man.
