Stripped

'I work at a human petting zoo'

April 23rd, 2012

What the hell is wrong with people? Especially me.

  • A not-so-surprising announcement and a reunion with an old work friend.

  • 'I can't breathe. I don't know why.'

  • If strippers age in dog years, how old is Justice?

  • Justice needs to make a month's worth of bills in a few days.

  • She said "I love you." He didn't.

  • She swore she'd never work Christmas again ...

  • My encounter with a should-have-been Vegas stripper.

  • How many times would you have to sell your whole body to earn what you would make selling just one vital organ?

  • The first week of NFR was a rough ride, but Justice is ready to get back on the proverbial horse.

  • I learned that there’s a custom: If you try on the hat, you have to try on the cowboy.

  • Black Bird is about to give birth in a "birthing pool," which in any other context would be a toy.

  • With another festival in the books, we take a look back on our favorite photos from LIB's 2014 installment.

  • Just in time for Halloween! Grab your audio recorders and UMF readers, it's time to contact the dead.

  • Need a ticket for Friday's sold-out, three-set show? You'll need about $500—or a miracle.

  • Either way, this band was a festival highlight.

  • The former space of Ming’s and the 24-hour cafe features sit-down breakfast from 6 to 11 a.m. (other sections are open 24/7); late-night and gourmet pizzas; soup station; create-your-own salad bar; sandwich station; sushi bar; and noodle bar.

  • Lots of good local bands and a drawing for a PBR guitar. Good times.

  • The "best band in late night" was also one of the best bands of this festival.

  • This was one act that truly left everyone wanting more.

  • Will people stand for 10 hours in the sun just to see Kanye West? Yes.

  • Start planning your festival experience around these dozen acts.

  • LIB's learning element is stacked with inspirational speakers.

  • Orchestral renditions of "Eleanor Rigby" and professional aerialists? You won't want to miss this.

  • One of the things setting Life Is Beautiful apart from other festivals is its impressive culinary component. Try these five bites!

  • It's renditions of well-known songs, but she makes them her own.

  • One writer's reasons for sticking with the social media website.

  • A nine-piece band and dancers in industrial-inspired costuming take Vegas down the rabbit hole once again.

  • “Life is sh*t for a lot of people. And sometimes you gotta embrace that.”
