Review: (Watch your) Step right up to the Circus of Fear 3D

By Francie Swidler
I was so excited to explore my first Colorado Haunted House that I accidentally got in line without collecting the 3D glasses I’d need to correctly experience the Circus of Fear. When finally suited up with the proper gear to enter, I was greeted by a colorful woman in a top hat, suspenders, tuxedo jacket and lipstick. I imagined her to be the Lady Ringmaster.

Historical hippies

A new kind of therapy … involving a pole

By Blair Madole
An array of brightly colored stilettos are arranged on the floor, there are booty shorts hanging on a rack with a sign reading “For Sale,” feather boas are strung over a shuttered changing screen in the corner, mirrors cover the walls, and eight shiny metal poles reach from floor to ceiling on one side of the large room.

Is the Internet making us dumber?

CU professor ponders whether the digital age means the end of intellectualism

By Cory O'Brien
Never has the rift between humanity and technology been so apparent as now, in the midst of the digital revolution, when technology is evolving at a more rapid pace than in any other time in history. It is also the only time where we will be faced with a rift between Digital Natives, who came of age in the digital era, and Digital Immigrants, who remember a time when cell phones, iPads, GPS and Facebook were not a way of life.

Making sense of Boulder fashion

By Steve Weishampel
Boulder tends to attract superlatives. It’s been named the foodiest town in America by Bon Appetit. It’s routinely among the fittest, the smartest, most likely to succeed, best smile, greatest ever. But nobody’s ever complimented the City of Brown Woolen Sweaters on its style. See what residents had to say on the night a fashion show took over Pearl Street Mall.

Art that moves you

Jen Lewin’s ‘Light Harp’ requires participation

By Krystal Baugher
Our current society is obsessed with the visual — especially our entertainment — from film to print to contemporary art. We absorb so many images daily that we have prioritized one sense and left many of the others behind. But what about our other senses? Because it’s our era’s popular choice, most artists still seem to use sight as the main avenue to relay their messages to an audience. But not Boulder artist Jen Lewin. She wants to move you.

Shades of white

BMoCA exhibit explores diversity in the community

By Krystal Baugher
Anyone who has lived in Boulder for more than a few days has heard the term “too white,” as in, “This city is too white.” Yes, there are a lot of white people here (87 percent according to the U.S. Census), but why are large groups of white people in general bad? And would throwing in some people of color really fix the issue? Is it an issue that needs to be fixed?
