Trends: Gut und Schlecht
Madelyn Barnes, Staff Writer • May 15, 2023

Some of the worst trends at this school revolve around fashion, whether it is clothes, accessories, hair, or something else-the students have opinions about.  Some of the most popular trends now are...

Classrooms are hotbeds for analytical and fantastical thought.
Class Time Daydreams
Madelyn Barnes, Staff Writer • May 15, 2023

It's no secret that school can be ridiculously boring. Long lectures, miserable socratic seminars-that one kid talking the whole time- and review time without music, or some kind of distraction is depressingly dull. With the phone and music ban in most classes, students must resort to coming up with...

License to Flatten: E-bikers
Heidi Naumov, Guest Contributor • May 15, 2023

What was wrong with normal bikes? Why, why are we giving young, wild, irresponsible children faster bikes? Are children not dangerous enough to their health and society on normal bikes?

TikTok Gems
Madelyn Barnes, Staff Writer • April 18, 2023

Birdcall, The Most Overrated Restaurant in Human History
Lucca Swain, Social Media Director • April 5, 2023

Of all the food fads to move through Boulder’s social circles, Birdcall has to be the most aggravating.

The Best Ways to Listen to Music, Ranked
Hannah Cohen, Opinions Editor • August 15, 2022

On January 28th, I quit my Spotify addiction. That’s an exaggeration, but not by much - the platform served as the hub for my podcasts, playlists, albums and slightly stalkerish tendencies.  So imagine my horror that previous Wednesday, when folk icon Neil Young removed his music from Spotify,...

Presidential candidate Joe Biden had a lot to say to President Trump on a Tuesday nights debate.
Biden's Back, Babey!
Hannah Cohen, Opinion Editor • May 9, 2022

Good news politics junkies, drama enthusiasts and people with too much time on their hands.
