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.

  • 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.”

  • “Las Vegas has truly become the world’s restaurant capital,” said celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse. “Las Vegas has the best collection of celebrity restaurants and chefs of any city in the world.”
