Holy sheet

Four haunted houses that do more than give you the creeps

By Francie Swidler
After having visited Bloodshed / The 13th Floor, and Zombieland / Asylum, my Halloween Haunted House Tour had immediately gone from happy-go-lucky, and phew my pants are still on, to I will never be able to sleep with the lights off again, and my goodness how is it possible that my pants are still dry.

Zombie jamboree

Thriving in pop culture, the undead take center stage this Halloween

By Steve Weishampel
Zombies are on the rise. And I’m not just saying that for the pun. AMC’s drama The Walking Dead is breaking records in its second season. Zombie video games sell like hotcakes. The novel World War Z will soon star Brad Pitt in theaters. And dozens of books cover zombies from every angle — fiction, faux non-fiction, survival, history, cultural relevance. Zombies are alive and unwell.

Fear and Laughing

Primitive Fear and 13th St Manor pack a one-two punch of haunted goodness

By Francie Swidler
Both Primitive Fear and 13th St. Manor are an absolute do not miss this Halloween season -- unless of course, you hate visiting dead, dysfunctional families, or the idea that you might actually wet your pants with fear.

Gears of War 3 ends trilogy with great story, action

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
It’s been about three years since Gears of War 2 was released, a great and hugely popular game with a multiplayer that struggled at first but became addictive that fans continued to play years after the game came out. Now with Gears of War 3, the trilogy comes to an end, but the gaming continues on.

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.

Bringing stencils to the studio

Amanda Marie’s work is like formal street art

By Krystal Baugher
She is not Banksy, but she is still badass. Amanda Marie Ploegsma’s first museum show — Purity & Credence — is on now at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) and there is no sign of her badass-ness slowing down.

Historical hippies

1960s get museum, dance floor treatment

By Steve Weishampel
Turbulent is one of those words people use to simplify immensely complex situations into something easily understood. That’s the case for 1968, an undoubtedly turbulent year in America’s history.

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.
