Re: “Colorado Springs-based Facebook page wants you to Give a Shit About Nature

wtf? I don't give a f___ing sh*t about your article. I read the first sentence and enjoyed it. After that, I sort of lost interest. You should just write F___ing sh*t stories only.

Re: “Who Gives a Scrap diverts nearly 22 tons of arts & crafts supplies from the landfill

This is an outstanding business idea! These ladies deserve this positive recognition! Thank you, Independent, for making our city aware of another way to recycle!

Re: “A common thread

I think it is more than ok for the artist's mother to "like" this article....

Re: “Open and slut

You're an odd one, no doubt. You're the one calling it a man-hater festival. I hardly think I'M the one being oversensitive.

Re: “Starr Kempf statues return to the Springs at the Ent Center for the Arts

I can remember when these were sitting out at the Kempf place. It was always interesting and fun to drive by there.

Re: “Two Pair

Bert,

That's a rather ambiguously bitter comment. Would you be willing to elaborate on why you feel the way that you do?

Re: “Open and slut

You don't have to hate men to not want to be raped by one, smartestman. That's quite a flying leap of (not) logic.

Incredible talent....incredible sculptures....the world should be in awe....
Not watching them get taken away piece by piece....
Another historical iconic artist & his work
.....swept under the political rug...
Sad ...very sad...

Re: “Open and slut

You're kind of missing the point. No one's protesting criminality. If it were as easy as picketing to keep your house from being robbed, wouldn't we all do that? This is about a much larger problem, about our cultural contempt for women's sexuality. There's no other crime in which the level of temptation presented by the target mitigates the crime - but did you know that by some statistics, 97% of rapists never spend a day behind bars? Why is it that so many rapes aren't reported? Because we prosecute muggers, but we still believe that women have ASKED FOR IT if they look or act a certain way.

Of course women should, first and foremost, take responsibility for our safety - but society still teaches women not to GET raped rather than teaching men not to rape.

This isn't about the right to wander around the streets unprotected at night. It's about the language we use to describe women's sexual behavior and the deeper cultural meaning behind that language.

Re: “Megan Larmie explores John Steinbeck's The Pearl at TwentyOne8

Great article - I've seen some of her other work at galleries across town. I really appreciate her technique. The pieces she produces are rich in texture and depth. The stark contrast between colors and designs is eye catching and creates a sense of abrupt change.

Re: “Colorado Springs-based Facebook page wants you to Give a Shit About Nature

Thomas Nelson censors his page like crazy. Anyone who so much as hints towards healthy debate on deeply thoughtful topics is banned. This guy has an ego that's going to be his downfall. It's too bad because nature needs all the help it can get, without ego trips getting in the way.

Re: “Renowned dancer Eiko Otake investigates the tragedy of the Fukushima disaster

TEPCO the Japanese nuclear power company continues to lie to the people of Japan and to the world about the true levels of radiation released into the atmosphere, ground and into the Pacific Ocean! TEPCO also continues to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean nonstop every single day to contaminate the plant life, insects, fish, ocean life and animals. We are now being told not to eat anyTuna and large fish at all because the radiation levels are unsafe to put into our body's and Fukushima radiation is now verified to be moving into the coast of California and the beaches will soon be polluted with this radiation! There is now verified proof of DNA damage and mutations throughout the food chain and we humans are next to suffer! and if we don't detox our bodies suffer we will! Experts recommend to commence detoxing with the natural mineral called zeolite that is proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body.This detox is VERY important to help prevent DNA damage that will cause disease and future ongoing mutations! For more quality information do an online search for the website with the single word Zeolite or search for" Detox With Micronized Zeolite"

Re: “The FAC unveils yet another Chihuly show, reinforcing a decade of glass obsession

Chihuly makes high-end decorative art. For most people, "art" is precisely that: ribbon candy on a pedestal. The general public generally likes Chihuly's art. "You don't need an art degree to appreciate it". So true. In fact, your appreciation of Chihuly will likely diminish the higher your education. That's why the FAC is going to show him as often as their budget & good taste will allow. Despite what Blake Milteer says, there's nothing to be found beneath the surface of Chihuly's art. Or, there's as much to be found beneath the surface of Chihuly's art as can be detected beneath the surface of any object - particularly those to be found on the shelves of any high-end retailer's kitschen & dining department. Every artist knows that a Chihuly show is naked pandering to an indifferent public & Milteer knows that a Chihuly show will generate much needed revenue for the FAC. Never-the-less, once the tourists leave town & Chihuly is sent back to the FAC basement, I predict that the FAC & its utterly middlebrow board of directors will make good with the regional art community by exhibiting a couple of serious-yet-well-crafted-yet-cheap art shows.

Re: “A cast-off, foam robot becomes a meditative monolith at GOCA

Great opportunity to tell folks where to recycle Styrofoam so it doesn't go into landfills. El Paso County has a Recycling Guide on its website. Folks can take clean chunks to Tegrant Corp, 1100 W Garden of the Gods.
