Re: “Downtown Boise's Olympic Hotel Gets New Life

It's great to see something we all thought of as a dead thing of the past come to life like this.

obviously from what I see the whole team practiced their trades with great pride, quality and flair.

Awesome!

Re: “Downtown Boise's Olympic Hotel Gets New Life

I (Patrick McKeegan) am the architect for the project. Chris Holladay at AHJ Engineers did the structural design, DC Engineers did the mechanical and electrical. For some reason the planning and design team never gets mentioned. Complex fun project, Ryan did an excellent job of coordinating all the pieces. Glad you show the old painted bulilding signs on the adjacent structure were preserved, one of my favorite features.

Like the other residents of the Classic Design, bricolage, Ming Studios and Strategos community, Wil is an artist and asset for Boise. We are lucky to have such creative and civic-minded folks. This is gonna be fantastic.

Re: “Downtown Boise's Olympic Hotel Gets New Life

I am thrilled. I am so happy about this rebirth of a place I have known (and loved) since my youth. Deep red and sunflower yellow! So perfect for the new (old) sign.

Re: “Mixed Media: Measuring the State of the Arts Economy

Way to go, Carissa Sindon​! Art is one way to measure the quality of life in any community. Thanks for contributing towards ours! I hope to see continued growth in the livability of Boise for local artists... art feeds our souls!

Re: “Mixed Media: Measuring the State of the Arts Economy

To a capitalist everything looks like capital.

Human capital is one of the more odious terms in the capitalist lexicon. The phrase advances a couple of key confusions: First, that human value arises from an ability to produce wealth (it does to parasites); second, that there is no distinction between labor (the work that humans do) and capital (sources of wealth that passively generate income).

Economist Branko Milanovic explains:

If “human capital” and “real” capital are the same thing, how can there be a conflict between labor and capital? If profits and wages are the same thing, why should we fight about distribution? You have your form of capital (which just happens to look like labor), and I have mine, which just happens to look like T-bills and stocks.

In a world measured by greedy capitalists and their accountants, everything must be assigned a number, so it will flow through the accounting routines programmed into the computers. Thus the perceived need to create the concept of human capital and to maximize it.

What say we take a ‘Creative’ step to break free of corporate/capitalist-speak and break free of the need to assign an economic value to everything under the sun?

Re: “One Man's Treasure

It's funny how the BLM and USFS actively burn 100 year old log cabins to the ground. Then fine you and arrest you for sifting through the ashes of cabins they've burned. Like half of the cabins in Stibnite, Cinnabar, Roosevelt and Thunder Mountain burned by the Payette NF

Re: “Curtis Stigers: Capital High School Jazz Benefit Concert

Why are you showing a story that over a year old? This year, 2015, the concert was on Feb. 9th

Re: “Curtis Stigers: Capital High School Jazz Benefit Concert

I think the date is wrong.

Re: “Old Boise Music Studios

Old Boise Music Studios is as busy as ever offering music and arts instruction to kids and adults from all over the Treasure Valley. Since the writing of this article there was clarification on the use of the name Old Boise Music Studios, which for many years has been the name used by the collective of independent professional musicians who offer private and group lessons at this location. The non-profit discussed in this article will be housed at OBMS, headed by Jordan Paige and will operate under a different name.

Re: “Old Boise Music Studios

What happened to all of the benefit show money? Seems like this place is flop...
