Re: “Singing With Angels

Saw the film in Utah - it's phenomenal. So much better than anything I expected and I highly recommend it.

Re: “Camp

Great movie. Incredible it is based on a real camp right here in Idaho! Very heartwarming story and well written. I loved that 50% of my proceeds will go back to our local camp to help foster children!

Re: “127 Hours

One of the best movies I have ever seen, James Franco perfectly portray's the desperation and confusion I'm sure was going through Aron Ralston's head during the ordeal. The score, composed by A.R. Rahman (with the help of Sigur Ros, Dido, and others) is genius and so perfectly goes along with the action, it seems the universe itself was playing it. This is the greatest movie of the past few years and is a must see for anyone and everyone. (some parts are rather graphic, so be careful if your squeamish)

Re: “The Counselor

A disappointment. However, cool furniture. (The scene where Fassbender & Cruz decide to escape to "Boise" is both painful and priceless.)

Love this. You have such a wonderful way of writing about the themes that so many of us women confront on a regular basis. Thank you for pushing past the fear of bearing your body--and your soul!

Re: “DBA State of Downtown Coming Attractions: A Stadium Update and Al Fresco Dining in the Middle of Capitol Boulevard

What bubble do these people live in. Capital Dining. Can the traffic get worse? Stadium money for the few. Make no mistake, these people do not have the interest of the people who live in town in mind. Boise, Denver, Phoenix. What will be the difference? The most livable city indeed.

Re: “DBA State of Downtown Coming Attractions: A Stadium Update and Al Fresco Dining in the Middle of Capitol Boulevard

200,000 is very realistic. It's around 5300 a game. The current venue is not an applicable comparison to a state of the art venue. We could fill Memorial Stadium on a more consistent basis if it didnt have the challenges and the 1st base grandstand sun issues. Attendance has spiked the past 3 years and this year will be probably the largest one yet.

Re: “DBA State of Downtown Coming Attractions: A Stadium Update and Al Fresco Dining in the Middle of Capitol Boulevard

I love the idea of a new baseball stadium. To get even 200,000 people through that stadium for baseball, though, the Hawks would have to nearly double their attendance to nearly 6000 a game. That seems optimistic. To tally 300,000 people in a season they would need a full season AAA team which is hard to come by. Is this something they are expecting to accomplish?

Re: “Sally Boynton Brown

Sally's leaving is a great loss for the state of Idaho. She is an excellent listener when many in the party wanted little or no change. I hope her replacement is even half the person she is!

Re: “There's No 'T' in Boise... For Now

Let's do the math.

Assuming the $111 million for initial construction falls out of the sky, look at the costs going forward. Using the city's numbers...

1400 passengers every day... 365 days (assuming it runs every day of the year, which the buses don't)... that's 511,000 rides per year. Awesome!

$3.3 million per year to operate. That's about 6-and-a-half bucks per ride. If the ride is shut down on Sundays, like the bus, the cost per ride is a little over 7-and-a-half bucks.

Will people climb on board (toot! toot!) and fork over that kind of dough? Nah. So obviously it will be heavily subsidized by people who aren't riding.

Re: “Panera Bread Coming to Downtown Boise

HOLY SHIT! A panera bread in Boise?!?! I'm finally going to make the move. I couldn't be more excited. Any real estate brokers available to show me houses near by? I want to be in before the explosion of rent.

Re: “Absinthe Any Objections

Pacifique is excellent absinthe. Voyager is excellent gin in the modern style (and not the London Dry style). Sorry Robert, but London Dry style is actually the more "real" gin in terms of historical perspective, and juniper is most definitely a botanical. Just as vodka is the liquor for people who don't like liquor, modern gin is the gin for people who don't like gin!

Re: “Absinthe Any Objections

This place is AWESOME!! And they make "Real" gin as well, from real plant/ botanicals... NOT the gin that tastes like distilled pine trees. My hats off to this small batch local distillery. Good work, we will be back!!

Re: “Sally Boynton Brown

When she's having a conversation with herself, does she tell herself to shut up so the black people can also be heard? (At least there's more black folks in Florida than in Idaho, so it won't always be awkward silence.)

Re: “Toasting the First Amendment

The first amendment does not give you the right to shout a person down, that is called disturbing the peace.. If I have a person coming down my street hollering and screaming and does not leave I will call the police and have them removed...
