Wu-Tang style

Grae matter

Jean Grae gives her smartass take on her new album

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
“[Femcee] is a stupid word. It’s not even a real word,” rapper Jean Grae says. “I think it’s a lot easier to say that and just put it in a box. It’s easier to put people in categories because you don’t actually have to think about anything or use your own mind or decide what it is on your own. It’s like, we get it! You can see my boobs, they’re right here, we get it!”

Plutonium parkway

Activists say a highway or bikeway through Rocky Flats site may present hazards

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
While some local governments and agencies are eager to see the parcel of land — a strip up to 300-feet wide from the Indiana Street right-of-way on the eastern border of the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge — be used either for a proposed parkway or a bike path, local nuclear activists say building anything there could be dangerous due to the presence of plutonium in the soil.

Weird sex laws in the U.S.

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
Back in the 1700s, U.S. law wasn’t too kind to people who were guilty of sodomy. The illegal act carried a maximum sentence of death. But in 1778, Thomas Jefferson rewrote the law to save people’s lives and, instead of death, the maximum sentence was castration. Up until 1962, sodomy was considered a felony and, in some states, oral sex, adultery and masturbation fell under the sodomy laws.

Changing signals

Despite changing lineup, Yonnas Abraham keeps The Pirate Signal broadcasting

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
Yonnas Abraham, backbone and spirit of Denver hip-hop band The Pirate Signal, is starting over yet again. Over the years, his band has lost and gained members, had masters of an entire album stolen by a former collaborator, moved to New York City only to move back to Denver, and has also toured the nation extensively with Boulder pop band 3OH!3, legendary rapper Kool Keith and the Warped Tour. They’ve been named Denver’s and Colorado’s best hip-hop group by local publications so many times it’s easy to lose count. The band has gone through so many ups and downs that it’s deserving of its own episode of VH1’s Behind the Music.

Scratching as an art

Colorado DJs compete for a chance to turn the tables on the world

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
During hip-hop's infancy in the mid-1970s, the DJ was the star attraction of the show. And the DJ did more than just 'play records,' like the disc jockeys of broadcast radio. They mixed songs seamlessly into each other using two turntables and a mixer to keep a consistent flow of music and dancing.

Carhuggers love your ride

Green Garage makes auto care less toxic

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
For most of us, owning a car is a necessity. And with the necessity comes the maintenance of oil changes every 3,000 miles, fluid flushes, brake repair and dozens of other issues that come out of daily use.
