    Plus, this dude thinks I'm a pimp and needs a date
    02/09/2015 09:14 PM MST

I know you've written about being a girl with curves, any tips for this spring breaker? -Big girls do cry

    Fantz column: The game of pants
    01/26/2015 09:19 PM MST - Dear Christy, Some of my friends are telling me to tap young arse - not like illegally young by a long shot, but you know, eight years younger.

What do you think is an acceptable age range? -Malcolm in the Middle  Full Story

    Nixon column: Coming-of-age tales
    01/20/2015 08:15 PM MST - The passage from adolescence into adulthood is an interesting topic. It's something that everyone has to go through at one point or another, but few could actually pinpoint a single occurrence in their lives and say, "Yep, that's when it happened." And pretty much every movie devoted to the subject does the exact opposite of that, accelerating the gradual progression from teenager into actual human being to play out in a 90-minute story arc.  Full Story

I'm a lady, dammit. Full Story

    Words From a Nerd: On the board
    01/06/2015 06:16 PM MST - Board games tend to get a bum wrap, and I can kinda see why. They can be a hard sell to someone who hasn't touched one since they sat around a circle table with their entire extended family for three-plus hours of screaming "Yahtzee," and having that one uncle roll the dice off the table every fucking time. Full Story

    12/29/2014 09:05 PM MST - Fantz: I need advice on proper etiquette. I made two batches of brownies and accidentally took the pot version to my boyfriend's family's Christmas dinner.

Am I totally screwed with this guy's family? -Stoner gal  Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Aspen Hourglass

    Most people don't play guitar like Grayson Erhard does. That's because most people can't play guitar like he does. The guitarist for Fort Collins' Aspen Hourglass often uses a difficult two-hands-on-the-fretboard technique that Eddie Van Halen first popularized but which players such as Erhard have developed beyond pop-rock vulgarity.  Full Story
