ATTN: students with a .edu email address

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Which usually costs $79 a year. Perks include free 2 day shipping, and $3.99 overnight shipping): (url shortened with

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address, so teachers and alumni might be able to benefit from this too (though the Terms of Service does say they have the right to ask for proof that you are a current student).

I apologize if you have already heard about this amazing deal. I just want to help spread the word on this before they stop offering it. I am not an employee of Amazon, nor do I gain anything from people signing up for this service.

Lady GaGa Tix

Yes, I know this is a serious long shot, but I'm desperate! I have three of extra tickets for the Lady GaGa show at the Pepsi Center nexct week (July 28th). I got these because both my husband and a friend of ours were trying at the same time and both got through at the same time, hense three extra tickets. The seats are FANTASTIC and I'm hoping to sell them at face value ($200), but any serious offers would be considered.

Thanks for looking!

From the GSA/ Queer Initiative

The following paragraph is being forwarded from the Queer Initiative at CU:

"The members of the Queer Initiative would like to let you know that Fred Phelps and his church are coming to CU's campus today to protest the gay marriage debate. QI members are going to meet in the UMC Atrium at 5:45 pm before marching out together to Chem 140. We are planning on silently protesting them with signs and flowers."

Let me 411 you:
Fred Phelps, for those of you who do not know, is the individual who infamously coined the term "G-d hates f*gs." He and his congregation will be on OUR campus tonight, protesting the "Gay Marriage Debate (that is scheduled to take place in CHEM 140 at 7.00pm)," between Maggie Gallagher, the president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM)--which is the institution responsible the "Gathering Storm" ad that ran in tandem with California's "Prop 8" campaign, and Jonathan Rauch, a journalist, contributing editor of The Atlantic, and gay rights activist.

The Queer Initiative has organized a counter-protest to Fred Phelps' presence, and the more people we have there, the better. There is material in the LGBTQ Resource Center to create signs (which will not be allowed inside the lecture hall, but will be used at the protest prior), so if you have time, please do make and bring your own. Wear "Queer gear," and try to be as visible as possible. This is a "peaceful" protest, and we do not want anyone getting in trouble, or getting hurt, but this man CANNOT be allowed to enact this type of behavior without check.

Phelps and his daughter are banned from entry to the United Kingdom, and he is planning on coming onto OUR campus to spread hate. Do not ignore this.

Here is the BBC article:;

Here is Phelps' website:;

Here is how they feel about Boulder:;

Meet in the UMC Atrium at 5.45pm. We will stand in solidarity from 6.00pm-7.00pm, which is when the "debate" begins. I put "debate" in quotation marks, because, let's face it--love and human rights are NOT debatable.

Hi! I'm currently looking into some MFA programs, and since I live in Colorado I thought I'd check out CU. How is CU's art department for graduates? More specifically, the ceramics dept?

Thanks for any info!

P.S. there's a post on the boulder_co group that may interest some of you. Typical "what's Boulder like" question, but with an entertaining response.

Oh, and Jared Polis bonged a beer with Stephen Colbert.  Awesome.

hi kids.

i have a couple tickets to the john denver thing at redrocks on the 27th.
there is a HUGE chance that i wont be using them, but since they are decent seats it would be a shame for them to be empty.

if anyone wants them for free, post a comment and ill be able to let you know by the 26th.
they are PDF, so i can just email them to you.

Ferret-Friendly Apartments

Hi, everyone! I'll be moving to Boulder for grad school in the Fall, and I'm wondering if any of you here have, or know someone who has, ferrets and is also a renter. I have called countless property management places today to inquire about their ferret-friendliness, and everyone has said "no." I'm starting to get a little concerned, so I figured I'd ask for advice here. Thanks in advance for any help!
