Re: “Book party tonight: Bryce Andrews asks the tough questions on wolves and modern ranching in his memoir Badluck Way

I just finished the book a few minutes ago, shifting consciousness from the snowy, subzero photos to this warm, sunny CA morning. The book is superbly crafted in a style that is Tom Groneberg (who writes one of the book jacket endorsements) meets John McPhee. I have pushed cattle in Montana and currently work on a 250 acre ranch--a mere back 40 to the Sun Ranch's vastness--and will always think of the wolf-elk-cattle drama in "Badluck Way" relative, and not entirely un-analogous to, our daily matches of heron and coyote against ground squirrel and deer. I hope Andrews will write another book very soon.

Re: “New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Must All of My Childhood Be Destroyed?

Hollywood loves to ruin things. Honestly, I don't know why they haven't tried to remake more Best Pictures. I think Sean Penn was smart enough to stop them back in 2006. Way to take one for the team, Sean!

Ah, but the cartoons and movies crapped all over the comic books. Fair's fair.

Re: “Seamus Todd: Notes and drawings from Lompoc Prison

This is not accurate. There are two separate facilities at Lompoc, a federal prison camp and a penitentiary, and it has been this way since well before 1990. the penitentiary has always been a very rough, violent prison, never a "Country club." There are fat, lazy officers, and there are very hard working conscientious officers, but some, convicts and journalists alike like to paint with a very broad brush. There are also convicts that are very likeable and pleasant to be around and others that make your skin crawl. Prison is a microcosm of society. Some convicts piss, moan and complain every day they are in prison and others make the best of a bad situation. Just like real people, right?

The album title certainly draws attention. We are all sinners, after all, but for the blood of Christ.

Re: “Oh give me a f*cking break already, enough with this about "nowhere to rock."

If you're interested in promoting a show at the ZACC, it's a pretty easy deal. And straightforward. I don't know what exactly constitutes "legitimate" in your book, but there are relatively small handful of volunteer folks who are trained to open, run, and close the space and they do regularly. If you'd like to receive the training, I think that it's perfectly fine that you request it from ZACC staff. Regardless, as a volunteer-run operation, it requires you have a trained volunteer on hand at your show, to help you run it. These folks got an email when you inquired, and it may simply be that they're otherwise busy.

Venues most missed. The White Birch, The Nunnery (Mostly for Parties), The Toole Shed and if you want to get a laugh, Mr. Bo Jangles.

Re: “Oh give me a f*cking break already, enough with this about "nowhere to rock."

I had a show booked at the Hammer Haus when it got closed. I immediately sent a message to the ZACC Below to see about transferring it there. I got an auto-reply back that basically said, "don't call us, we'll call you." I don't really have a problem with how anybody chooses to run their own space, but so many promoters I know are so busy tha they need gentle reminding that you're still there and need an answer. So I tend to agree with the Kaimin that there are no legitimate all ages venues in Missoula.

Here's the auto-generated reply:

Hello and thanks for submitting your event to the ZACC Below!

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS! SERIOUSLY.

The ZACC is a non profit community arts center on Missoula's Northside. The ZACC Below is a space in the center reserved, in part, for all-ages music, theater and events. We manage these happenings via a community team, one of whom must elect to sponsor your event and take responsibility for our space for that time. As such, your acceptance to play here is based on one of these individuals taking interest in and also being personally available on the date to help run your show. These individuals represent a diverse spread of tastes and the overall mission for the ZACC Below is specifically to provide a safe and positive environment for DIY, all ages events.

Upon sponsorship by a team member any details regarding the rental rate, deposit, etc. will be arranged between you and your sponsoring team member.

Events must end by 11pm with start time no earlier than 8 pm unless special arrangements are made. Doors may open at 7 pm.

The ZACC Below is alcohol and drug free.

We do not play recordings of or host live performances of any music licensed by ASCAP, BMI or SESAC.

We have a garage-grade 8 channel PA system with various vocal mics, stands and two monitors. If you require additional equipment please plan on bringing it.

This is an auto-response and your confirmation that we received your message. Regarding your submission, no news from us is bad news and indicates that no one has elected to book you. With the number of submissions we receive unfortunately can’t respond to all requests, no offense. If your event is selected, we typically will respond within a week or two. IMPORTANT!: This email is the sole avenue to book the ZACC Below. Refrain from contacting individuals or staff members at ZACC or the ZACC directly via Facebook regarding your submission as they will simply redirect here.

All the best,

-the ZACC Below

I love Tom Petty's songwriting, but I think his voice sounds like hell.
