    Fantz in Your Pants: Helmet head
    05/26/2015 01:28 AM MDT - Dear Christy, My boyfriend never wears a helmet when he rides his motorcycle. Apparently you don't have to in Colorado? I think that's just ludicrous. Have any tips for me in getting him to be safe? He's not a bad driver, I just would feel more at ease if he would protect his noggin. -Moto Babe  Full Story

    Running Under the Influence: Ready, set, sore

    Fantz in Your Pants: Mediocre melody
    05/18/2015 09:12 PM MDT - Dear Christy, I went to see Robert Ballard (of Titanic fame) talk at CU, and watching this guy didn't help my life situation. He's 73, has four Ph.Ds, and owns a Navy ship he turned into a research vessel. I'm crowding 60, had arthroscopic knee surgery, have a B.A. in economics (micro or macro, can't remember), two sales awards (big deal) and a picture of me with a 117-pound yellowfin tuna (proud of that one). I feel like I need to do something more. I weigh about 190 pounds, so a heavyweight title is not in the cards. -Feeling Mediocre in Boulder  Full Story

    Fantz: Celebrating our mothers
    05/10/2015 09:09 PM MDT - You may be all Mother's Day-ed out with the social media saturation and the fact that it's over, but I don't care. I'm a mother, so I'm going to wax myself poetic: Happy Mother's Day to me, I stand tall like a tree, sweet fancy Moses I procreated... so happy damn Mother's Day to me. On this dreary Sunday as I work, I implore thou to go make me a sandwich (hearty, I'm hungover) and throw mimosas at me (over-pour, I'm parched).  Full Story

    Fritz in Yer Pantz: Bone appetit
    05/04/2015 09:17 PM MDT - Dear Jeanine, I keep meeting these girls on Tinder and it seems we've hit it off. When we meet for a beer, the date seems to go OK, and we text a few times after that and it sounds like we'll go out again, but then she just drops off the face of the planet. I don't get it. Please explain. Tinderloin Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Gasoline Lollipops

    The Boulder alt-country band gives its EPs names such as Death and Resurrection, and its songs bear the mark of hard truths and sin. But the punk energy behind the playing, and the sense that it's all in good fun, make it OK to dance to a song like "Death." Full Story
