Re: “Utah Beer Fest 2016

Worst experience ever! Spent two hours in line for electronic tokens to purchase beer and their entire system was down! Spent my entire experience in line, hot, and thirsty! I requested a refund and waited another 30 mins getting the run around before I was escorted out the gate. Sadly to say that this beer fest was an epic failure and I'm sure their will be plenty more ppl complaining and receiving refunds, or just a crowd of angry people wanting beer standing in line thirsty! Either way it was still s terrible experience!

Re: “Utah Beer Festival 2016

So how does this work? You pay to get in and you try the beers for free? Or do we still pay for the beer itself

Re: “Utah Beer Festival 2016

Can I by a d.d ticket at any of those locations? Or at the gate? If so can the d.d ticket get me in with my group doing the early beer drinker?

Re: “Utah Beer Festival 2016

"Purchase G.A. tickets in person at the following locations" I don't see it at the list, but can I just purchase General Admission tickets on the day of at the festival? Or is the G.A. tickets only available at those particular locations?

Re: “Best of Utah Arts 2016

While the theatre performances and performers you nominate are well deserving ... Is there a reason your "arts" categories don't include all the theatre arts?
Say, set design, costume design, lighting design, music direction, stage management, etc.

It truly "takes a village" to do theatre

Re: “Hail Hydra!

I'm not that familiar with Red Skull but I take it that he is a villain since he is paired with Trump. And Donald Trump could be one of Ayn Rand's villains out of the pages of Atlas Shrugged so it seems a bit naive to pair her with her antipodes.

Re: “Hail Hydra!

No, Donald Trump and Red Skull ARE Ayn Rand.

Re: “Hail Hydra!

So then it's Ayn Rand/Steve Rogers/good versus Donald Trump/Red Skull/evil? That does sound interesting.

Re: “Burger Week 2016 VENDORS

@Nanajlove I apologize that your stop at TPA was disappointing. This is definitely on me (I'm their account rep.) not them. I've communicated more clearly with them that the purchase of any burger will earn you a sticker for Burger Week. They have no problem with that now that we're all on the same page. Thanks for participating in Burger Week and keep on going. Good luck!!!

Re: “Burger Week 2016 VENDORS

So far this is disappointing! The directions say get a burger, get a sticker. NOWHERE does it say I have to order their feature burger to qualify. The Point After REQUIRES that I order their heart attack burger before they give the sticker and it was disgusting plus I had to wait an hour to get it, ON A WEDNESDAY!

Re: “Rock En Pointe

I attended Longoria's performance and appreciate what she is doing, but Katherine Pioli would make her pointe (haha) more convincingly if she knew more about contemporary ballet and rock music. First, it gives Longoria an awful lot credit to infer that she is the first choreographer since Balanchine to move ballet forward, and I'm sure Longoria would be uncomfortable with the comparison. If as an arts writer, Pioli actually as she believes as she states in the body of this article, that ballet "is still a stodgy old art form made for grandparents and little girls in pink princess dresses," I would honestly like to know if she has ever attended a ballet performance in the 21st century? Only last month San Francisco Ballet premiered a work by the young, maverick choreographer, Justin Peck, to a score by Sufjan Stevens -- only the most recent example of a long list reaching back to such successes as Joffrey Ballet's 1973 premiere of Twyla Tharp's Deuce Coup to music by the Beach Boys (she also created ballets to David Byrne, Bruce Springsteen and others), or Joffrey's 1993 Billboards to the music of Prince. Pittsburg Ballet has danced to Sting, and believe me, choreography to Radiohead is getting almost as saturated as Philip Glass. It's not that it hasn't been done, it's that it hasn't been done well very often, and Longoria is exploring venues and local musicians and is still in the process of figuring out what works and who to work with.

Re: “Rental Blues

I personally think your information is deceptive at best the problem is that these developers are.owned controlled by the church and the fact that most if these apartments are being filled up by young L.D.S.leaders children who are basically using church money to foot the bill combating any one not L.D.S should not live in the downtown area and for a fact that. Most if these people who are renting these apartments are young and controlled by the religion and everything is deceptive and not what it should be Utah is trying to act like it is a new York style but falls heavily short on the fact that it don't like clubs rap music or any entertainment that is not P.G and that makes salt lake city biggest expensive high rent of nothing to offer any one at all the rents are three times the amount of the income and most only work like 39 hours a week at that part time what a joke !!!!!

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

The guy gave Zootopia a less than stellar review because it didn't have the coherent message he wanted. He's one of two reviewers whose review was assigned a "Rotten" rating by Rotten Tomatoes. Relax. It's still an amazing film if you like it, and most people do.

Let's be fair, he DIDN'T fall into the trap of "Zootopia's racism is unclear because the metaphor breaks down when predators=(insert minority here)" that most negative reviews of this film do. That's a very America-centric interpretation of the film that speaks more to the narrow mindedness of the reviewer than the message of the film. I give Scott credit for looking at the film's consistency with itself instead of with his own notions of how the world works.

That being said, I disagree with him because the film explicitly states that you can't fit the world into neat little categorical boxes; a complex social problem can't be solved by a simple solution, but can begin with basic principles of how we treat one another. This is a fairly realistic take on how things actually work, and I like that the film mirrors that complexity by having no simple way to approach its message. If any of us looked back on a day in our lives and see it for what it really was, there would be mixed messages and muddied meanings. Some people fit the molds we imagine them to, others only partly so, and others break them entirely. Guess what? That's life, and as long as we continue to be humans, we'll always have this nasty little problem. It's our own effort that keeps us from devolving back into the reactionary, categorizing people our DNA tells us to be.

It ultimately comes down to our differences in what we like in our films. Scott wants a neat, tidy package that wraps itself up nicely. I don't mind the messy, newspapery collage around this one, and from the looks of it, so do most of you. If you dislike Scott's review, don't read him anymore. Or do, because it's sometimes good to hear things we disagree with.

There's no simple answer.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

Listen to the monologue at the very end of the movie; this is when Judy acknowledges that while complete stereotyping is bad, "the real world is a lot more complicated than 'you can be whatever you want'". She says everyone has limitations. So no, the message is not an absolute "NO PREJUDICE", it's a much more complex and deep message that you need think about to fully understand. It's a message about how life is messy and you just have to do your best to make the world a better place.

I think it's funny how this writer asks readers to think about the movie, yet simplifies the movie's message so that he can say it's contradictory when it's actually not.
