Re: “The Wrong Side of History

This IS Idaho Mr. Kernkamp and I don't like some of the things about it, this is my home, as with anything Mr. Kernkamp, if you don't like something about your home, you do everything you can, for as long as you can, to change it. It will happen Mr. Kernkamp, when it does, I will personally come over and help you pack your bags. Nina Michelle

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

This is Idaho. If you don't like it the way it is, then you may feel free to leave. If you decide to stay, then DO NOT try to force your views and opinions on us.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

Are we to understand that Otter is only concerned with human rights if it is a good business decision? I would like to see some follow up questions in regards to his comments.

1 - About you?
2 - To him?
3 - About honest humanitarian service?
4 - About knowing who we can trust?

Re: “Gandhi, King and Ikeda

I can only suspect that of the three, the one that's A) still alive and B) never heard of is paying the bill for this thing.

Re: “Nosferatu

Wish I had known earlier, I would have attended. Silent movies are a passion and this is one of the best. I've seen it several times with live music so I would have loved this original score. Why nt on C of I campus as well?

Re: “Breathing Fresh Air Into Arts Instruction

When I first walked in to Fresco Arts Academy, I was taken by the simple fact that students were wearing hats during class and listening to their iPods while painting. Most schools don't allow that; they act more like crowd control than an environment to thrive and learn to be yourself. I've been hooked ever since. It's an amazing, nurturing place of freedom. I love teaching here.

Re: “Red Light Variety Show: Nostalgia

Playboy didn't feature full frontal nudity until the early '70s, so it was hardly "no-holds-barred" in the '50s! Do your research.

Re: “Antiques Roadshow Re-Cap

Okay, I thought about it more and this was for ANTIQUES roadshow, not COLLECTOR'S ITEMS roadshow, so he's right it isn't an antique when compared with things like Ming Vases. But to say it's "not a piece of art" totally discounts the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into making the intricate framework, papering, painting and the elaborate decorations. The blends and layering in the paint job can be quite intricate on lions of this age. If David reads this, I'd like to see more detailed pictures if available. Thanks!

Re: “Antiques Roadshow Re-Cap

hahaha, this is what happens when people don't really know what they're talking about--he should have referred it to an expert in Chinese folk art. True it isn't that old so wouldn't be considered "antique" but the rarity is what makes it more valuable. Chinese lion heads are consecrated as holy items and the performances they take part in are blessing rituals with hundreds of years of tradition behind them. When their useful lifespan is over, lion heads are retired and then burned to return their spirits to heaven. Therefore to find a lion head of this age still in this condition is extremely rare. The lion heads manufactured today are nowhere near the same quality as those made even 20 years ago, and the ones from the 70s are usually even more elaborate than those. The care and craftsmanship in the construction of lion heads from anything earlier than the mid 1980s is unrivaled by 90% of the lion heads in production today, which tend to be mass-produced. Especially notable on this lion are the light blue silk filigree over wire forms of dragons and phoenixes--a technique that hasn't been seen on lions in close to half a century, the large silk pompoms--much larger than those being produced today, and the overall excellent condition of the beard and fur trim. It does look like at least one of the small silver scales is missing, but the rest of the papier mache and framework appear to be in tact. A gorgeous piece, definitely a collector's item. Even more valuable if the tail is still with it and in the same excellent condition. The two offers above are a bit high, but I believe they are serious. I can attest that they are real lion dance practitioners and collectors. Let me know if you have any questions,

Re: “Mirth-athon

Hi! This is Sarah Shamblin Foster. First, the full quote was, “I was disappointed and indignant, FOR ABOUT AN HOUR!” I had not yet publicly released the Boise Comedy Festival dates, so there’s very little chance Megan could have known. It was relatively easy to step aside, as I hadn’t yet invested an enormous amount of money or time into BCF's resurrection, and it freed me up to pursue other projects I’m excited about. As I also told Jessica: Putting on a comedy festival is no small feat, and based on what I understand of Megan’s background and skills, she’ll do a great job. Boise NEEDS a comedy festival. We have a wonderful, supportive, growing scene here. I’m pulling for ILF, and I hope Boise audiences rally behind it!

Re: “Libraries Becoming Community Centers

I'm surprised Joanne Hinkel would admit she's not very good at her job. There are plenty of ways to get the word out about these programs.
