Former Torrington citizens create new Gopher video for Torrington Gopher Hole Museum

Published on

2020 has been a good year for the Torrington Gopher Hole Museum.

With the opening of the museum last week and a successful town fund raising event to benefit a local couple who had a house fire in early July, the community has been a hotbed of community spirit.

“I originally recorded the Gopher Song a long time ago,” said composer/musician Dennis Oster who now lives in Red Deer.  “Earlier this year, I got a call from Laural Kurta, who works with the museum now and she said she was having the original cassette restored.  I offered to re-record the song and it took 3 takes to get the song right.”

Former Torrington citizen and area historian, Tim Lasiuta, worked with Oster to create a video to celebrate the world famous museum was pleased to be part of the tribute.

“My family lived across the street for many years and I an honored to be part of the community, after all of these years,” said Lasiuta.  “There is no official count, but I suspect that close to 200,000 people have been to the small attraction, something that no-one ever would have expected.”

July 24 marks the OFFICIAL world release of the Gopher song and video.

Long live Clem the Gopher!

ADAM BALDWIN’S No Rest for the Wicked – Raw, Real and Full of Heart!

Published on

“I SPEAK IN RAINBOWS,
IT’S MY NATIVE TONGUE…”

“Let me go insane…” from ‘Half a Mind’ hits my ears over and over and I can’t help but think that it’s exactly what I need to hear right now. In fact this could be one of the most profound heartfelt 23 minutes and 15 seconds of music I’ve heard in a hell of a long time. Yes, I understand that this EP came out last year but wow. Sometimes something pops up and just screams at you to stop and pay attention. Musically that doesn’t always happen for me. As an artist it’s something I strive for. To connect. Adam Baldwin hits the nail right on the head with this rock n roll collection of songs that simply put are incredible and beautiful. It’s rare when honesty meets authenticity and is completely vulnerable.

“BABY MIND YOUR FOOTING,
MY TERRAIN IS DEADLY…”

‘Dark Beside the Dawn’ is absolutely one of the coolest songs ever written. Yes, I said that. The raw integrity that Adam is able to deliver vocally is amazing and reminiscent to the likes of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. Of course Adam is no stranger to the Rock N’ Roll life playing guitar alongside Matt Mays as well as his own legacy that he’s certainly creating. There’s just something so emotionally captivating about this EP that resonates.

I had the pleasure of meeting Adam a couple years back while he was in Red Deer, AB performing with Matt Mays at Bo’s Bar & Stage back when concerts were a thing. Adam gave me nothing but time and sincerity. Which is not always a given amongst peers within the industry so it was a really nice surprise. I could tell immediately that Adam was one of the ones. You know, the “it” quality.

Sometimes tho, you get the “it” combined with organic vulnerability and that transcends. That my friends becomes what we’ve all come to look for in searching for those epic moments of self discovery and realization in life. I call it “Heart.” You ever get that feeling where all of a sudden whether it makes sense or not, it just feels like it doesn’t matter because for that moment, there’s a certain euphoria that just takes over? Me too. Then it’s gone. Fleeting. That’s what this EP does for me but it’s not fleeting. These songs make me feel like I can hold onto it for a little while longer. I like that.

So… If you didn’t know who Adam Baldwin was before reading this now you do, you’re welcome. Take a you day, pull up Adam Baldwin’s No Rest for the Wicked on any major music platform, hit play and then hit repeat! Give yourself a soundtrack and stay well.
