That's an excellent photo!

I was at the Leonardo the other day filming a lecture for the U's school of architecture (any of you there?), and I stopped a moment to kind of just admire the city hall building. It was a gorgeous day (just before the past storm we had) and the sun was setting. It was really sticking out for some reason.

That sounded nerdy, but you know... I fancy good looking buildings.

I wish I could go from Wasatch Front to Southern California Winters instantaneously. Both have their perks.

Yeah, it`s the same way in Brazil - the ground level is usually called level 'T" for "Terra", then the next level is 1, then 2, then 3, etc. I`m not sure why some countries count floors like that - the American way makes more sense to me.

Great photo, S.P. Hansen!

Man, I love the city/county building. As far as City Hall's go, it's one of the more beautiful I've ever seen. Milwaukee's is a distant second in my opinion.

Yeah, it's a great photo; I'm glad Mike Portanda uploaded it to Flickr. The Salt Lake City and County Building is really beautiful in the winter.


Here are a couple of pictures of Salt Lake City from this evening.

I love the Walker Center. I can see the rooftop lighting from my 9th East apartment window. I can always tell whether or not it's going to storm just by seeing whether it's lit up red or blue!

Last night I looked out of my bedroom window and there were fireworks going off just South of Gallivan Plaza. Anyone know what this was for?

Random question.

What are SLC's chances of ever getting an MLB team?

If you go to your user control panel here there is a list called an ignore list. I've already added him to mine.

I'm done being the vigilante with a gun sitting on our front porch, I'm moving past that; let the dead bury their dead. Or in the case of Cornhusker, let the dead bury themselves.

I believe it was the official reopening of the Gallivan Center Ice Rink. Channel 2 had something about it on their news broadcast--their anchor was going to be the one exploding stuff. Um, setting off the fireworks.

Interesting radio interview about the new performing arts center downtown.

http://kcpw.org/blog/cityviews/2011-...e-arts-center/

Interesting point/counterpoint interview. I've worked directly with Charles Morey a number of times, and he's a very smart and talented guy. I think both he and Mathis make good arguments.

It's about 35 minutes.

Almost every time I've been interested in attending a touring Broadway show, I've been unable to because they sell out within minutes of going on sale. I think the UPAC will allow more people to see the shows, and sooner than later. We'll get touring shows a couple of years sooner having a larger venue.

In fact, the only time I've seen a touring show was when a friend gave me free tickets to RENT that she got from working at a media company. And I'd already seen RENT several times on Broadway.

Did you listen to the interview?
Getting shows sooner has little to do with the size of the venue and everything to do with the size of the market. We'll get shows sooner when we pass up other metro regions in size.

The company who actually books the tours has said many times that Utah is passed over because of the venue size. Because of the popularity of the arts and theatre in Utah, we trump other markets larger than us because we sell more tickets already than they do, given our small market, small venue, etc. Tickets sell out much faster here than most other markets.

The guy who made that statement on KCPW had no research to back it up. He just said it because he's opposed to the new venue, and biased because he runs a competing theatre company. Just because he said it, you believe it's true?
One of the few facts he did state, he got wrong. He said Utah was the 37th largest market in the USA. Actually, we're 29th in the 2010 census and we were 26th in the 2000. But we rank higher than that in terms of arts attendance.

I saw on the news the new plans for that theater they want to build on main. they changed it up. The highrise is in the middle of the block and the auditorium is at an angle.
