Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

Thanks for the recommendation. That's out in paperback now, right? Sorry for being so ignorant and disgraceful.

Re: “Oliver Stone's Gospel of America

Absolutely loved this review... Spot on, and I say that as a former classmate of Oliver's at NYU Film School and the producer of two documentaries on his life and work ("Oliver Stone Inside Out" for Showtime and "JFK: Backstory" for AMC.) Oliver skews his world view, bizarro fashion, to provoke the rubes into believing that he -- Oliver -- actually believes in what he's saying.

Oliver is his own best creation channeling as he does the spirit of P.T. Barnum and reflecting the truth of HL Mencken's dictum: "nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people"

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

Read John 3:16 in your Bible, and believe that Jesus is real. He is a King who came down off his throne in Heaven to save mankind and bring us to God, being God's only Son, whom was obedient to God; even to death by dying on the cross for us so that our sins can be forgiven forever and we can have eternal life through Him in His glorious Kingdom above. Please do not bring Bigfoot into religion like this, it is both ignorant and disgraceful to God our Father above. You have a right to your opinion on Big Foot, just as I have mine. But Please, don't bring religion into this. All I am saying. Bottom line.

Re: “Boise Classic Movies: The Sequel

We applaud the idea of classic movies- both recent and not so recent- being screened to big crowds in theatres. It confirms what we already know: The viewing public is not stupid and will reward quality when it's offered...Plus- great movies never grow old, and watching them in a big venue with lots of other people is like church- in other words, how they were meant to be seen...Still if you've got a great home entertainment system, that ain't half bad either! -- John Farr, BestMoviesByFarr.com

Re: “Moonshiners: Dukes of Hazzard Without All the Pesky Culture

Loved it that the kid was shown wearing an East Tennessee State University T shirt, finally my alma mater gets some recognition. Refreshing to see the real deal amidst all the "reality show" fakery.

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

The parallels on this show to people who attribute every bump in the night to evidence of supernatural magic are unmistakable. Here are a few of my expurgated thoughts:

Bigfoot is their Jesus, and they will find him. (After all, you can’t prove he doesn’t exist.) Even if it takes 2,000 years for him to show up again, they’ll continue “praying” with sasquatch-calls.
Like religious zealots who tell you exactly what God is thinking and what happens when you die, they describe with absolute certainty the eating habits and rituals of a beast they’ve never seen.

This is the best "Boise Weekly" review of "Moonshiners" that I -- or anyone I know -- have ever read.

Re: “208 MUSIC VIDEO SHOW pt. 2, ala Potatoh

This is the video that won last year. Shasta Nash at least deserves some cred for the work that went into it.

This is absurd! Your sense of humor has been compromised by your ego. You must be too hip to laugh.

Re: “Cowboy Love Stories

Wow! Can't wait to see it. Would be nice to hear about some other Idaho films headed up there. I saw something recently called "Nobody Cares" I 'm pretty sure, shot in Boise mostly, but, part in New Plymouth, where I'm from. Great movie!!! wondering if it"s going up there...

Re: “Portlandia: The White Subcultural Equivalent of a Minstrel Show

I imagine the writer of this article has no grasp on satire. Oblivious, as well, to the foundations behind the writers , producers and actors of Portlandia. Please do your research on life and do not quit your day job.

Re: “Portlandia: The White Subcultural Equivalent of a Minstrel Show

When Josh Gross laughs at "King of the Hill," is he "laughing for the right reaons"? Or, more likely- perhaps he doesn't laugh at all, because he is a dour, self-absorbed, humorless twit?

Lawyer jokes are the white professional equivalent of the Nuremburg Rallys.
