Re: “Boise Weekly's 13th Annual Black-and-White Photo Contest

Somehow I feel as though there was not enough time given for this contest I mean come on really..according to your news date, the contest was announced May 22nd, which puts it in between publishings, therefore when the new edition on May 27th..readers only had a little bit over a day, and, according to your instructions the submissions have to be brought down to you.... come on you guys, ...REALLY?.... sounds contrived, and perhaps if I'm close to being right, maybe you could extend the deadline and includes all of your viewers not just select few..

Re: “Hemingway at Rest

You mistakingly wrote "It was during this period Hemingway made observations and gathered material for what would become his second novel, The Sun Also Rises (1926)." His time in Italy during WWI was depicted in A Farewell to Arms, which was his second novel. The Sun Also Rises was the 1st, & based on his early time in Spain.

Re: “First Thursday: Downtown Boise Winter Window Gallery Stroll

Ah, the times have changed! Back when I was a kid (right here in Boise), they were CHRISTMAS windows; now they're WINTER windows. And - it was the FAIRYLAND Parade; now it's the HOLIDAY Parade!

Hopefully nobody's offended by Winter or Holidays, huh?

Re: “First Thursday: Dick Lee's Drawings at Boise Creative Center

I was lucky enough to participate in an event at the Boise Creative Center. Alex and his lovely wife Jamie, opened their studio and gave me an opportunity to paint for the first time on a large scale. It was exciting, but the most memorable aspect of the night was how welcome I felt. Alex, Jamie thank you for a night to remember.

Re: “The Eyes Have It

I guess I just don't understand why I should care about these pretty faces. The only thing that would make them interesting is if there was a story behind them, or if any details were given about their lives or thoughts. Its boring just to see all his pretty friends making the same expression into the camera.

Re: “The Eyes Have It

Im so tired of people from out of state moving here, and then thinking that they can define the essence of Idaho or define us at all while writing a cute Boise chamber of commerce type guide book or something. I was born here, and Idaho is like my mother, my home, and my state of mind. Put 20 years in here at least, if your a transplant, let the land sink into your soul, pause and think of the harm that people themselves do to anyplace where there is simply too many of them, and show some respect before you tell all your Facebook croneys how great Idaho is or who you think we are.

Too many white people. And Idaho doesn't grow corn, that's Iowa.

Re: “The Eyes Have It

Exactly what I was thinking. Why are we so eager to welcome any old display of art? We need to be more discerning as a community. This is clearly such a play to all the subjects vanity. Flattery gets you far it seems.

Re: “The Eyes Have It

This project seems like bull. I'm no photography expert, but what was the actual "interplay" between artist and finished product? It just looks like a photoshopped digital camera image. I do have a studio art degree, and I would like for the community to have the opportunity to engage in a real critique of this body of work before we allow it to be a representation of Boise.

Re: “Cuba on the Cusp

In my trips to Cuba, I have witnessed freshly scrubbed children in identical, but colourful, uniforms sitting in classrooms which exit directly onto the sidewalk. Then I saw these fit slim kids enjoying themselves playing with improvised sports equipment. I also saw a country where education and healthcare are free and university is for everyone. The people seemed happy and music comes from every direction. Food, especially lobster, is as 'cheap as chips' even in the tourist currency. In many ways it benefits from not having the excesses of the USA.
This is the country to visit if you want to learn about recycling; nothing goes to waste in Cuba. They can make anything work with magical ingenuity.
There is nothing as relaxing as watching ship movements from a cafe on the Malecon; mostly Chinese, of course. They pick up nickel from Cuba to enhance the quality of their steel which they then sell to the USA. In the meantime, the USA's steel manufacturers have given up. I cannot understand why the USA doesn't use Cuban nickel and retain their steelmaking ability.

Re: “StoryCorps Airstream Mobile Studio Arrives in Boise

Glad they adopted my idea to make a "No Cry Challenge", I used 2 Storycorp videos in a youtube playlist called the 19 video No Cry Challenge about a year ago and the people of reddit agreed they were some of the hardest to get through. Link for the curious http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9BD5E9DCFC492580.

Re: “Paint For Life

John Collias, I must agree with you . . . the word "Scribblism" is a great word! That is why I invented it in 2003 and purchased www.scribblism.com in 2004. The correct definition of the word Scribblism is the art and practice of the scribble. That is, to take scribbles - whether intentional or inadvertant, and look for Resemblances in the lines. Once these Replicas/Similars have been Recognized there is a process of Extraction and Utilization. It was this way of seeing the world that prompted me to later invent the Old Man in the Peanut!
