It’s that time of week again: The end of it! While we celebrate, we want to make sure you didn’t miss any of the most popular stuff on the site this week:

1. Hollywood Headaches: An Ode To Angelina Jolie’s leg — Man, the Oscars got weird this year, didn’t they?

2. Worst-dressed in the outdoors, not OscarsBut yeah, I’m talking to you, guy who wore baggy shorts and no underwear to hot yoga. Wear underwear under there next time. At the very least, you should’ve been in the back of the room, Cap’n Commando.

3. CU-Boulder’s Radio 1190 to restructure, rebrandA bill, passed unanimously by the CU Student Government’s Legislative Council, cited several problems –including a “serious lack of communication” between station departments, a diluted talent pool due to a high number of radio personalities, a lack of accountability, a poorly managed budget and an attitude among student employees that the job is a hobby rather than a profession.

4. On the avalanche advance guard with the Colorado Avalanche Information Center BOOM-boom.

The sound of avalanche-control explosives had been firing down the Crystal Creek drainage, near Breckenridge Ski Resort, on and off all day. But now, skiing higher into the wind-ripped drainage, near treeline, a boom rocketed down the valley so hard that the opposite side called back with an echo, prompting avalanche forecaster Scott Toepfer to pause and say:

“It’s a little disconcerting, isn’t it?” He resumed pushing his skis uphill and added, “That was a big one.”

5. Chiddy Bang “Breakfast” reviewChiddy Bang first snagged our attention with “Opposite of Adults” — an upbeat celebration of never growing up that sampled MGMT’s “Kids.” Two years later, the Philly duo is back with their first studio album and the same infectious energy.

6. Jonas Guitars a hidden Boulder gemJonas Ceelen has been building guitars for 15 years and teaching others to do the same for seven. It’s been a quiet, mellow existence, but the business is poised to get a lot bigger as the shop brings to life a totally new guitar design.

Jonas Guitars sits just past 75th Street on Arapahoe Avenue, but there’s no sign to mark its existence. The only distinguishing landmarks are some horses and a spiral-shaped sculpture by the road. Down a short gravel-and-dirt driveway, inside a small barn, is where Jonas lives and works.

7. The 20 best stoner films… that you’ve never seen before

8. ‘Chasing Ice’ wraps up Boulder International Film Festival

9. Boulder coroner IDs victim of apparent suicide outside East Boulder rec center

10. CU tuition controversy: Regent says outcry over administrators’ raises killed 15.7% tuition hike
