This place sucks.In a turn of events I cannot describe, I ended up at the Magic Laundry on South Monaco Parkway and Iliff Avenue last night at 10 p.m. Positioned in the back, shabby corner of a dead strip mall left label-scarred by its now-vacant anchor store, King Soopers, sits the 24-hour l ...

Nicki Minaj was the musical guest on this week's SNL. Her performances were good -- she's an undeniable presence -- but her star turn was in a digital short called "The Creep."
