NOTE THE SHORT SHELF LIFE OF ELECTION RESULTS Which Boise Weekly do you read? Of course, there’s the traditional print issue, which hits the streets each Wednesday and provides some intellectual stimulation while staining your ﬁngers. And then there’s boiseweekly.com, where we pump out Web-exclusive content via Citydesk and Cobweb, our 24/7 platforms of information, videos and just-plain-interesting stuff. When someone tugs on the sleeve of a BW reporter and says something like, “I read ‘so-and-so’ in the Weekly,” he or she could be talking about a blog post that included a video that we tweeted out from the scene of a breaking story, or perhaps the reader is referring to a concert review posted minutes after the last encore was performed, or maybe the reader spotted an online interview we conducted with a celebrity or powerbroker. In fact, Boise Weekly is a bit of a misnomer. More accurately, it’s more of a brand. Our most recent example is our election coverage. While, like the rest of the working stiff journalists in town, we were shoving out results from the Nov. 6 contests, we were also posting exclusive online proﬁles of the faces and voices of the craziness that was Election Night 2012, Our stories included the bizarre poolside view at the Boise Democratic Party headquarters where revelers watched President Barack Obama’s victory speech on a television hovering over a hotel swimming pool; elsewhere, we rubbed elbows with concert-goers at Neurolux doing all they could to avoid the election results; another reporter spent the evening with a group touting itself as “Mormons for Obama.” And still another scribe met the 4-year-old son of a just-elected Democratic state senator who told us he would have voted for Mitt Romney “because I like his hair.” Meanwhile, recognizing that the election was quickly losing its shelf life, the morning after Election Night, Boise Weekly was distributing its next issue with a scant amount of political content inside. Instead, we were looking forward to the upcoming season of winter recreation, showcasing visits to area slopes, considering winter beverages and foods and talking to a young Boise woman poised to begin the World Cup ski season in Europe. Some may call that being “ahead of the curve.” It’s actually a bit more simple: We’re just trying to keep up with our readers. Some like it hot (sizzling election results) and some like it cold (with an eye to the slopes). Some prefer their news on a laptop or smartphone. Others prefer to spread out the paper on the kitchen table. We like it all. —George Prentice

It’s not really a college, you know I start this without knowing who won. It’s the morning of Nov. 6. As a general rule, it takes me three sessions of writing to get one of these things presentable—day one to ﬁnd direction, day two to ﬁnish the thought, and day three to make certain I didn’t say something exceedingly dumb. Sometimes, I start a column (as I did yesterday—Nov. 5) and change my mind as to topic overnight. When that happens (as it did last night), it means I need a minimum of four days from commencement to handing something over for publication. I admit to being neither a fast writer nor a fast thinker. Sometimes, if things go really ﬂooey, I need ﬁve days, or even six, to knock out this measly 1,000 (or so) words you have before you. The point being, I can’t afford to wait until tomorrow (Nov. 7)—when presumably I’ll know who we’ll be calling president for the next four years—to start writing. Now, I could assume Barack Obama is going to win (as I indeed am assuming), but then, if the unthinkable happens and my assumption proves wrong, I would have some mighty gooey egg on my face, wouldn’t I? By the time I ﬁnish this up Nov. 8 (Nov. 9, maybe), I will, of course, know the outcome, unless one of those waking nightmares like Florida 2000 happens. But for now, anything I have to say about why Obama won (or lost) and why Mitt Romney lost (or won) can wait. It’s best I play it safe, put off my victory lap column (or my “We are doomed!” column) until next week and ﬁnd another theme with which to occupy my three typing ﬁngers. And to that end, we shall discuss today the urgent need—nay, I say emergency need—to toss that rotting piece of archaic crap, the Electoral College, into the recycling bin of history before something horrible happens. I (and many others) have argued before that the Electoral College has outlived any usefulness it ever had and is now little more than a tire-shredding, axle-snapping pothole smack-dab in the middle of Democracy Road. Had we ditched the college back when we should have (at the dawn of the era of telegraphy), the nightmare of Florida 2000 would never have happened. Two out of the last three presidential elections were conﬂicts between the Electoral College vote and the popular vote. (You betcha, I am conﬁdent John Kerry actually won Ohio in 2004, which would have made him president even as George W. Bush took the popular vote.) It’s eminently possible the same damn avoidable mess could happen tonight (Nov. 6), when they count up the ballots. It’s been on the lips of bean counters and hair splitters for months that one candidate could win the college vote and the other the peoples’ vote. And I’m telling you, peoples, this is no way to run a modern country. Those traditionalists so fearful of any WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
deviation from the muddy rut the founding fathers dug for us in establishing the Electoral College argue that the college gives puny little backwater states (Idaho, say) more clout than they would have if all that counted were the popular vote of such backwaters. I have never understood this iffy theory. Tell me, how is it that converting all of Idaho’s votes (no matter how diversiﬁed they are) into four uniﬁed votes conveys any more bang per capita than turning all of California’s votes (no matter how diversiﬁed they are) into 55 uniﬁed votes? Frankly, the conservative reliance on this mythical clout obscures the real reason anyone thought we needed the college in the ﬁrst place—that being: It could take weeks for the results from separate regions of the newly born and oversized nation to make their way to a central location—and it also ignores the very real and immediate ills with which the college has infected our modern politics. Not that I object to missing out on the dense swill-storm of campaigning and advertising that a handful of swing states had to endure over the last year. I’m sure everyone outside the battleground—Californians and Alabamans, lucid progressives and foggy tea baggers, elitist merlot-sipping liberals and catﬁsh-wrestling, Coors-slurping hillbillies—are thankful that when we switched on our televisions during campaign season we could enjoy a normal Viagra commercial or Charmin ad rather than another tsunami of political proselytizing. However, by distilling millions of opposing votes into a single-voiced Electoral College delegation that marches lock-step with no hint or history of opposition, we are committing an offense to the very fabric of a democracy, the very nature of which is for citizens to combine their voices across the broadest spectrum. And that fusion of the like-minded should not be forced into irrelevance because a state line falls between them. Oh, wow, is it Nov. 7 already? It must be. I didn’t wake up all nervous and jumpy. In fact, I woke up happier than hell. But I haven’t changed my mind about the Electoral College. Just because we got lucky last night doesn’t mean the two-headed troll won’t eventually come out of its cave again. And every time it happens we are another step closer to a calamity. One more point: Imagine how much harder it would be for the dirty bastard, voter-suppressing vermin to disrupt the polls and deny other citizens their voting rights if it didn’t always come down to a few urban counties in Florida or Ohio. Think doing away with the Electoral College would be bad? Try winning another election with rotten, racist tricks and we may ﬁnd out what real bad is all about.

BIPARTISAN CONTEMPT Both zombie parties too stubborn to admit they’re dead
Neither party gets it. They both think they won. And they sort of did. But we still hate them. Democrats are patting themselves on the back, congratulating themselves for a mandate that neither exists—50.4 percent to 48.1 percent does not a mandate make— nor, if it were real, would be actionable. “Republicans need to have a serious talk with themselves, and they need to change,” Democratic columnist E.J. Dionne sniped in the Washington Post. Not likely. If Republicans could change anything, it would be the weather. “If you hadn’t had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the Romney campaign to talk about the deﬁcit, the debt, the economy,” Karl Rove told the Post. (Which leaves out the fact that the places hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy, New York and New Jersey, are not GOP states.) “We [Congressional Republicans] will have as much of a mandate as he [President Barack Obama] will,” claimed Speaker John Boehner. The donkeys and the elephants think they’re awesome. Their plan to govern America for the next four years? Keep on keeping on. Why change? Voters are narrowly divided between the D’s and the R’s—because we can’t decide which one we hate most. One out of three people think the two-party system is broken and complain that neither party represents their political views.

A staggering number of people are boycotting quadrennial exercises in pseudodemocracy. Despite the advent of convenient early voting by mail, Election Day 2012 saw a major plunge in turnout nationally compared to 2008. About 42.5 percent of registered voters stayed home this year. In one of the most ignored and interesting stories coming out of Election Day, 1.5 million people voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Since Johnson and Stein were even more thoroughly censored than previous thirdparty candidates—denied interviews on the major networks and locked out of the presidential debates—many of these votes must have been for “none of the above.” Democrats didn’t win this election. Neither did the Republicans. Give the parties credit: They’ve united us in our contempt. Liberals and progressives hate the Democrats, who take their votes for granted and ignore them. Conservatives hate the GOP for the same reasons. And moderates hate both parties because they don’t get along. Since the economy collapsed in 2008, Americans have made consistently clear what their No. 1 priority was: jobs. Yet the two major parties have focused on anything but. The Tea Party convinced Republicans to campaign on paying down the national debt. Deﬁcits, the debt and entitlements are important—but 13 those problems are not nearly as

MUCH ADO ABOUT MACY’S Idaho Shakespeare Festival considers expansion plans GEORGE PRENTICE To be or not to be. Boise Weekly has learned that Idaho Shakespeare Festival ofﬁcials have been in conversations regarding the possibility of moving the company’s administrative and rehearsal space and creating a new performance venue in the former Macy’s building at 10th and Idaho streets in downtown Boise. When BW ﬁrst broke the story precisely one year ago (BW, Citydesk, “Proposal Unveiled to Convert Macy’s Into Affordable Housing,” N. 14, 2011), reporting that developers had their eye on the vacant building to introduce what they called “workforce housing” to the downtown core, members of the Capital City Development Corporation Board of Commissioners greeted the news as “exciting.” Twelve months later, Dave Wali, broker with Colliers International and shepherd of the project, told BW that all signs point to a massive construction project at the location, slated to begin in spring. “There’s a good reason we don’t want to start any earlier. If we got under way now, we’d be done in a year and nobody likes to move in to a new location in the winter,” said Wali. “Spring makes more sense.” John Trienen, chief estimator for Boisebased CSDI Construction, conﬁrmed that his company is poised to be the general contractor for the renovation of the building, which has sat empty since March 2010 when Macy’s pulled up stakes. Trienen has been working with architects, designers and Northwest Real Estate Capital Corporation, a nonproﬁt that specializes in affordable-housing management. A conﬁdential agreement was inked between Macy’s and NWRECC earlier this year detailing the evolution of the vacant structure into 62 individual apartments ranging in size from 518- to 1,000-square feet on the second through ﬁfth ﬂoors. Rent is expected to cost approximately $540-$1,040 monthly, targeting people with an average income of $20,000-$27,000. “It’s such a landmark building, such a beloved building,” said Cece Gassner, economic development assistant to Boise Mayor Dave Bieter. “Getting that building activated with a lot of vibrancy can only help Boise’s downtown.” Gassner conﬁrmed that there has been dialogue–albeit informal–involving Idaho Shakespeare Festival regarding the open space on the ﬁrst ﬂoor and mezzanine of the old Macy’s Building. “Yes, my knowledge is that there have been conversations with [ISF],” said Gassner. “But I’m really not allowed to talk about the speciﬁcs.” Trienen took it a step further, saying his company had crafted “a rough estimate for the Shakespeare Festival on that space.” “Those conversations took place within WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
the last four months,” he said. “We’re working with the architects at CSHQA. They

come up with a conceptual design, we get the plans, consult with contractors and put some numbers together, and go from there.” Trienen added that the conversations are far from a “done deal.” “But this is going to be a very high proﬁle midtown project, and that would a pretty signiﬁcant entertainment venue,” said Trienen. CCDC Director Anthony Lyons couldn’t agree more. “The thing that I ﬁnd most wonderful here is that you have the city, the CCDC, a nonproﬁt and a for-proﬁt developer all working toward making something happen,” said Lyons. “Right now, it’s not about who can do what. It’s more about what works or what doesn’t work. But everyone coming together to make something special at that location is the best part of this.” ISF ofﬁcials are being extremely cautious to characterize their conversations, which they insisted are “very informal.” “The most critical thing for us is that we have to bring in a large group of supporters for something like this, from the CCDC to the Mayor’s Ofﬁce,” said Mark Hofﬂund, ISF managing director. “If it’s structured right and the leaders are there and the plans are taken through a logical progression, then you can get buy-in along the way.” Charlie Fee, ISF’s producing artistic director, said the redevelopment at the old Macy’s
“The project is very exciting: Workforce housing creates a component in downtown Boise that’s clearly needed and beneﬁts everyone,” said Fee. “To be able to combine that idea with a performance space would be an exciting, visionary project for the city.” Fee quickly added that it was “far too early in our planning to make any sort of statement on whether this is the project we’re going to join or not,” but said, “if we could be a player, that would be exciting.” “There’s nothing surprising about the fact that the Shakespeare Festival has, in its longrange planning, been looking for a permanent space for its administrative ofﬁces, rehearsal space, classroom space and for our very largeand growing drama school program,” said Fee. “And we’re always looking at the possibility for a second venue that the Shakespeare Festival can use, perhaps with other community organizations, as a performance space.” Fee told BW that he and others from ISF inspected the building, which was built in the 1920s, “and we were very impressed.” But whether ISF can craft a deal to expand into the landmark space will require a lot more dialogue, formal and informal. And all parties agreed that those conversation will need to pick up the pace if next spring’s construction start date could include plans for the festival’s new ofﬁces and performance space.
Reporting on the shenanigans surrounding wannabe nuclear developer Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. is usually a tale of two viewpoints. Talk to ofﬁcials with AEHI, and they tell you that they’re moving forward with their plans to build a nuclear-power plant in Payette County by beginning what they call “an extensive environmental study” in preparation of their application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Payette County commissioners agreed in February, overriding their own Planning and Zoning Commission to green light AEHI’s plans. But federal prosecutors have an entirely different view of AEHI, asking a federal judge to freeze AEHI’s assets for the second time in less than two years, saying AEHI CEO Don Gillispie’s “get rich quick” schemes were continuing. In December 2010 the Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that Gillispie was “pumping and dumping,” manipulating AEHI stock through false statements and allowing key management to sell shares at inﬂated prices. U.S. Judge Edward Lodge froze the assets but lifted the order in February 2011, warning Gillispie to provide detailed monthly documentation of AEHI expenditures. But now, SEC investigators allege that Gillispie was sliding money around–as much as $2 million–“concealing the money from shareholders, the public, and the [SEC].” AEHI spokesman Dan Hamilton told the Associated Press’ John Miller that the SEC was tr ying to put the company out of business. “There’s no doubt, this court action has taken its toll on the company,” Hamilton said. Since July, share values of Alternate Energy Holding stock have hovered near 2 cents per share, a dramatic difference from when AEHI traded near 60 cents per share in December 2010, before the ﬁrst SEC complaint against the company. But AEHI is, if anything, persistent, announcing in October that it was now exploring the use of small modular reactors for its proposed nuclear power plant in Payette. “This would not necessarily replace our plans to build a large-scale reactor on the proposed site,” said the company in an announcement to its investors. “But there may be an opportunity to build one or more years in advance of the larger reactor.” —George Prentice

JAILER JAILED Ex-Juvenile Corrections security ofﬁcer charged with lewd conduct CARISSA WOLF

A former security ofﬁcer at the embattled Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections facility in Nampa is on the wrong side of a jail cell, slapped with charges of lewd conduct with a child. The charges followed whistleblower complaints (BW, News, “Culture of Corruption,” July 25, 2012) alleging inappropriate sexual relationships between inmates and staffers. The felony charges against Julie McCormick, 31, come nearly ﬁve months after a group of IDJC employees ﬁled suit against the State of Idaho and nearly seven months after IDOC staff reportedly witnessed inappropriate behavior between McCormick and at least one juvenile at the Nampa facility. “Staff had raised concerns that there was inappropriate behavior and nothing was done,” said Rhonda Ledford, one of 12 plaintiffs who ﬁled the suit. Ledford said she and other staffers witnessed at least one juvenile inmate visit McCormick in her private ofﬁce, which was out of view from security cameras. “I walked by and she had a juvenile in her ofﬁce. A security [ofﬁcer] has no reason to have a juvenile in her ofﬁce at all,” Ledford said. “I know what I saw was not appropriate.” Ledford said she and staffers reported the incident in April but nothing came of their complaints. “I was told that several staff were aware of the behavior but were required to sign conﬁdentiality statements about the situation,” Ledford said. McCormick was reportedly ﬁred in August, two months after the whistleblowers’ lawsuit was ﬁled. “In at least two mind-boggling incidents, female IDJC staff members are believed
to have been involved in unlawful sexual relationships with male juvenile offenders in their custody,” wrote attorney Andrew Schoppe in an amended complaint against the IDJC. The suit notes that at the time of the complaint’s initial ﬁling in June, a “female staffer believed to have had a sexual relationship with a male offender remains on staff there.” Ledford said the criminal charge against McCormick validates the whistleblowers’ lawsuit that also alleges rampant cronyism, safety violations and misuse of taxpayer dollars. Employees reported seeing McCormick being led from the IDJC Nampa facility by police in August. Felony charges of lewd conduct with a child under the age of 16 were ﬁled against McCormick Nov. 2. Department ofﬁcials have refused to comment on the suit and couldn’t be reached to comment about whether McCormick’s termination and criminal charges stem from the whistleblowers’ complaint. But IDJC Director Sharron Harringfeld, who is named in the suit, reassured the public of the department’s safety standards in a written statement. “I am conﬁdent that our staff and the procedures that we have in place focus on the safety and protection of juveniles in our custody and ensure that when allegations of misconduct are brought forward, they are investigated and appropriate action is taken,” Harringfeld wrote. Court documents allege that McCormick, who was hired by IDJC in 2005, had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old inmate on at least three occasions in her ofﬁce and had the teen’s name tattooed on her neck. As of press time, McCormick was being held in the Canyon County Jail on a $200,000 bond. WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

JIM MADDY Zoo accreditation CEO: Zoo Boise has great animal instincts GEORGE PRENTICE
How does Zoo Boise excel? [Zoo Boise Director] Steve Burns banded with some of his counterparts several years ago to pioneer a notion of collecting quarters for conservation. That idea spread like wildﬁre, and today we’re collecting millions of dollars. Zoo Boise is a national and international leader in wildlife conservation, and it is punching way beyond its weight class. I think Zoo Boise is setting an example for much larger institutions all across the U.S. and Canada. How exhaustive is the accreditation process? [Maddy pointed to a 400-page binder that represented Zoo Boise’s reaccreditation application.] There’s a peer inspection team that comes in every ﬁve years at a minimum. Now, I should tell you that we also come in between that ﬁve-year period if complaints or issues are brought to our attention. The crew that came to Boise for the ﬁve-year peer review included a deputy executive from the Santa Barbara Zoo, a veterinarian from the Sacramento Zoo and the chief curator from the Tucson Zoo. The review generally takes about two-and-a-half days. The core of the review centers around animal welfare–the
10 | NOVEMBER 14–20, 2012 | BOISEweekly
care and nutrition of animals and the holding areas–as well as the ﬁnancial performance and stability of the institution. Are your standards evolving or are they static? If you keep a zoo or aquarium just like it is–don’t change a thing–you will not pass accreditation next time. These are sciencedriven standards, a continuous process. But I usually use the analogy of a shoe store. If the store doesn’t work out, you just get rid of the shoes and padlock the door. A zoo doesn’t have the option of simply going out of business. But have you ever been involved in the shuttering of a zoo? We lost a zoo to natural disaster in Minot, N.D. A ﬂood destroyed everything, and they evacuated the zoo. When disaster strikes, and I’m thinking about tropical storm Sandy, how soon do you have to move in? Aquariums are more fragile when they lose power and water pressure. The New York Aquarium on Coney Island was completely ﬂooded. It was a tidal surge and the ocean came right through. Some animals
JER EM Y LANNINGHAM
When Jim Maddy was being recruited to become president and CEO of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, he visited a number of American zoos. “And my wife turned to me and said, ‘These are the nicest, most caring people I’ve ever been around,” Maddy remembered. “My wife’s an artist so her sensitivity meter is pretty highly tuned. I turned to my wife and said, ‘You’re right.’” Maddy, chief of North America’s accrediting agency for the continent’s top zoos and acquariums, said, “The best part of my job is the people,” but he is also responsible for setting what he called “rigorous standards.” Among the best zoos in North America, Maddy said, is Zoo Boise, which he recently presented with its third national accreditation in 15 years.
were rescued, but they deﬁnitely lost animals, too. They’re probably going to have disperse the collection. How many zoos and aquariums are currently accredited? Two hundred twenty-three in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. And how does that compare to the total number of zoos and aquariums? There are about 2,500 organizations that hold licenses to hold or exhibit wildlife. Now some of those, like Zoo Boise, are large organizations, but that number also includes a lot of animal refuges or roadside attractions. Only about 9 percent are accredited by AZA. Do you consider zoos and aquariums to be economic engines? Zoos are more popular than ever, with more than 185 million guests annually. Accredited zoos and aquariums have a $16 billion dollar direct and indirect contribution to the nation’s gross domestic product. Directly and indirectly, that represents about 145,000 jobs. In most metropolitan areas, the public zoo is the most visted attraction and the price is right. It’s high value and much more affordable than attending a lot of sports events or a weekend trip to the beach or mountains. Interestingly enough, our 11 zoo and aquarium attendances actually went up during the recession.
WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M
CITIZEN But how difﬁcult was the recession’s impact on operating a zoo or aquarium? The recession deﬁnitely had a lag effect. A little more than half of AZA accredited insitutions are in city parks or on city land. The recession obviously impacted property values and tax bases, and I’ve noticed an increased backlog of deferred maintenance. We have to watch that very carefully in our accreditation process. We had to pull accreditations a couple of times this year. About 100 times, we’ve either denied, pulled or tabled accreditations. When we table them, we give the organization the opportunity to make the necessary corrections. If they come back and it still isn’t there, they don’t get a second extension and get their accreditation pulled. They have to wait another year before they can reapply, and it starts all over. 10
How many times has that happened? About ﬁve times. Does AZA get involved in investigating zoos or organizations accused of animal abuse or neglect? The public is very interested in animal
welfare. But we’re a professional organization. We get a regular stream of unsolicited reports from the public on things they’ve seen. We always encourage them to reach out to animal control or the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Can you speak to the increasing number of exotic animals that are owned by individuals in this country? Venomous snakes, large carnivores. There are more tigers in North American back yards than there are in the wild of Asia. Exotic animals don’t make good pets for all sorts of reasons. That cute bundle of joy turns into something that is 300 or 400 pounds and its nutritional and veterinary and social needs can’t be met. Part of a meaningful wildlife education experience at our accredited zoos and aquariums is helping people understand that exotic animals don’t make good pets for all sorts of reasons. When you’re visiting a zoo, do you have personal afﬁnity for any particular animals? I love miniature mules, the cutest farm animal you ever saw. I also love birds of prey. When I’m left alone at a zoo, I drift toward hawks and eagles.

urgent as unemployment and underemployment. When you’ve lost your 6 job, you need a new job now. Not next week. Not next year. “Romney is not offering a plausible solution to the [unemployment] crisis,” Jonathan Chait wrote in New York magazine back in June. Romney never did, and that’s why he lost. Jobs were the No. 1 issue with voters, Obama never reduced unemployment and Romney had a credible narrative as a corporate turnaround expert. By all rights, Romney should have won. But he never delivered what voters wanted: a credible turnaround plan for the terrible jobs market. The president nearly lost to one of the worst challengers of all time, a bumbling, inarticulate Monopoly Man caricature of an evil capitalist. Democrats lost seats in both houses of Congress—this to a Republican WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
Party whose platform on social issues was lifted from the Taliban and whose major political ﬁgures included two rape apologists. Like the GOP, Democrats paid lip service to the economy but never put forward a credible proposal. In 2009, Obama dwelled on health care reform. Like the deﬁcits, the health care crisis is real and important—but it wasn’t nearly as urgent as the jobs catastrophe. Four years into an existential crisis that likely marks the ﬁnal crisis of late-stage capitalism, an economic seizure of epic proportions that has impoverished tens of millions of Americans and driven many to suicide, the United States is governed by two parties that don’t have a clue about what we want or what we need. Change? Not these guys. Not unless we force them to—or, better yet, get rid of them.

SATURDAY NOV. 17 Water: so unassuming yet so important.
THURSDAY NOV. 15 aqua TAKING ON WATER Without water, living on Earth ... well, there wouldn’t be any living on Earth. The tasteless, odorless liquid comprised of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen makes up most of the human body and covers much of the planet’s surface. While Idaho author and engineer Wendy Pabich would suggest that water availability is important everywhere, it’s perhaps paramount in arid Western states. Pabich has spent years gaining knowledge about the Gem State’s water supply, which she’ll share with visitors at the Idaho Conser vation League ofﬁce in downtown Boise Thursday, Nov. 15. In Pabich’s own life, water conservation is an outgrowth of that knowledge. She has compiled that information into a new book on understanding our water footprint, an indicator of our water use. Her book, Taking on Water, is about Pabich’s own journey to implement dayto-day water-saving strategies and to monitor her own water use. The result is a roadmap and personal memoir that could spur people looking to do the same. Idaho Conservation League is a group dedicated to preserving the state’s myriad streams, lakes, forests and other wild areas. After Pabich’s free presentation, which begins at 5:30 p.m., ICL will tell listeners about their efforts to reduce Idaho’s water footprint. Attendees can pick up their own copies of the book following the evening’s events, as well as have them signed by the author. 5:30-7 p.m., FREE, Idaho Conservation League, 710 N. Sixth St., 208-345-6933, idahoconservation.org.

What would it feel like to stand next to an elephant—to reach out and compare its tremendous trunk or dangling ears to the size of a human hand? Even at the zoo, it’s not every day that Boiseans get to be up close and personal with mega-fauna, but the Boise Art Museum’s latest exhibition promises to do just that. The exhibition, White Elephants, is a vision of how the enormous animals appear physically and kinetically. The life-size elephants are made from white rip-stop nylon to invoke their size and mass, and since they’re made from lightweight material, they sway and shift gently as drafts pass through the museum’s 80-foot Sculpture Court, simulating how elephants actually move in the wild. The elephants are also conﬁgurable, and the amount of air supporting their inﬂatable frames determines whether they stand, sit or lie on the ﬂoor—whether their trunks sag between their puffed tusks or extend animatedly. In some cultures elephants are sacred and, beyond the physical dimensions of her subject, artist Billie Grace Lynn chose to build the elephants from white material to imbue the herd with an ethereal, ghostly quality reﬂecting their spiritual signiﬁcance in cultures from Africa to India. BAM debuts the exhibition Saturday, Nov. 17. From then until May 17, 2013, visitors to the museum can stand beside and walk among this shifting herd of simulacra as they slowly navigate the exhibition room. Saturday, Nov. 17. FREE-$5.

SATURDAY NOV. 17 The St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees will jingle your holiday bells.
opera BALLET IDAHO AND BOISE PHILHARMONIC MASTER CHORALE With Thanksgiving quickly approaching to kick off the holiday season, many of us ﬁnd ourselves going to bed with the incessant jingles from Christmas ads still ringing in our heads. Though it can be easy to get lost within the pressure to do the holidays bigger and better, its not a bad idea to reﬂect a bit upon America’s past. No, we’re not suggesting you pull out your college histor y textbook to brush up on arcane names and dates; instead, we encourage you to tr y learning through the arts. On Saturday, Nov. 17, Ballet Idaho and the Boise Philharmonic Master Chorale will join creative forces during their performance of Sacred Land and The Rite of Spring. With Robert Franz conducting, Jim Cockey composing and Peter Anastos as ballet artistic director, the performance features an all-star leadership team. Sacred Land, composed by Cockey, works to bring some insight into the history of Idaho’s Shoshone-Bannock tribes, as well as how this has affected tribal members’ present-day lives. The piece is divided into four parts honoring the ancestry of the tribes. The segments pay tribute to the Creator, the Earth, the Ancestors and the Healing of All People respectively. Similar to how Cockey wrote Sacred Land to honor the history of the Shoshone-Bannock culture, Igor Stravinsky wrote The Rite of Spring to play upon memories of his own Russian history and heritage. Together, these two pieces take the audience through a journey of relocation and reconciliation. While the performance takes a much more serious tone, we’re pretty sure that one (or two) glasses of hot buttered rum afterwards will be enough to bring back all the warm fuzzies. 8 p.m. $38.50-$76.50. Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise, 208-426-1609, boisephilharmonic.org.
But regardless of the temperature, there’s always a way to celebrate riding, and may we suggest the Eagle Island Cyclocross Race.

TUESDAY NOV. 20 ﬂora FESTIVAL OF TREES Decorated evergreen trees have been a staple of the holiday season for centuries. Propped up in living rooms, boughs laden with glowing orbs, the trees are a symbol of the holiday spirit. Visitors are invited to take in the annual St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees beginning with a gala Tuesday, Nov. 20 at Boise Centre, followed by a full schedule of daily events. For nearly 30 years the festival has dazzled Boiseans with its annual display: rows of trees furnished with every decoration imaginable that complement a host of holiday events. Visitors are invited to stroll through the display, and families can visit the North Pole Village to meet Santa Claus and his elves and create a Christmas card. Santa is also be available for visits and photos with children during the ﬁve-day event. On Family Day, Saturday, Nov. 24, families can bring a toy donation for the Salvation Army and receive $1 off adult admission. A holiday celebration would be remiss if it didn’t include a tree-lighting celebration, which takes place Nov. 24 from 5-7 p.m. Boise Mayor Dave Bieter and his family join visitors in Grove Plaza for caroling and candle lighting. Last year the event raised more than $400,000 for St. Al’s Women’s Wellness Mobile Clinic. This year, proceeds support the expansion of the hospital’s Boise Emergency Department. Visit the website for speciﬁc event details. Gala, 5:30 p.m. $250 per person. Wednesday, Nov. 21, Friday, Nov. 23-Sunday, Nov. 25, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 22, 2-9 p.m. $4-$7.

Tis nearly the season for bundled bodies and gloved ﬁngers. But in addition to the usual winter wear conundrums— like where to stash your pile of layers at a packed party or how to keep your gloves from divorcing—there’s now a uniquely 21st century problem: how to operate your touchscreen device $19.99-$34.99, while keeping your digits cozy. agloves.com Agloves ﬁgured it out. The high-tech glove company weaves strands of silver into its smartphone-friendly hand-warmers. “The secret to all Agloves products’ design is silver. Silver is the most conductive element on the periodic table of the elements. Each Aglove is knit with real silver threads—no copper nickel or tin alloys—combined with other materials,” the company wrote on its website. Agloves are antibacterial and come in ﬁve designs: original, sport, natural, grip touch and heavy duty. While the natural Agloves are lightweight and quick drying, made from bamboo, silver yarn and spandex ﬁbers, the heavy-duty pair feature grip touch and a polyester-nylon blend that provides insulation and water resistance. And unlike other touchscreen-oriented textiles, Agloves are made entirely from conductive materials, so that your smartphoning can be uninhibited by your smart dressing. “We’ve chosen not to retroﬁt a normal glove with unsightly conductive patches, stitching or tips. Instead, we’ve built the entire Aglove to be touchscreen compatible—pinky to thumb, knuckle to palm.” —Tara Morgan

ARTS/SHOW REVIEW TMP’S FALL SHOW The biting mockery of The Unkindness of Ravens and the social commentary of Ladies and Gentle Men—both of which were performed at the Morrison Center Nov. 10—show that Boise choreographer Trey McIntyre hasn’t lost a step in bringing together big ideas and minute observations through dance. Nov. 10 was the ﬁfth anniversary of the Trey McIntyre Project’s move to Boise and the company celebrated with a world premiere preview of The Unkindness of Ravens, a brutal take on man’s animalistic nature. With help from Dancemotion USAsm, TMP enlisted three dancers—An Lee Chang, Tae Hee Kim and So Jin Lee—from the Korea National Contemporary Dance Company to perform with TMP’s Brett Perry and Ryan Redmond. The piece will have its ofﬁcial debut Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Wearing black costumes and rigid wings, the dancers displayed pack behavior reminiscent of the crows in Dumbo, while one of them puffed haughtily on a cigar. Finished squabbling, the ravens banded together only to commit themselves to ﬂames. Ladies and Gentle Men, which premiered in August at Jacob’s Pillow in Becket, Ma., offered a rich commentary on conformity and gender identity. Men in formal wear chastised each other for displaying individuality while women preened and courted, only to become victims at the hands of their male counterparts. It was here that McIntyre displayed his aptitude for incorporating costumes into his shows: A woman thrust an arm into her male partner’s dress shirt, pushing her hand deep into his chest. During an expression of sexual violence, one of the men in business attire greedily forced his hand up a dancer’s dress. At the end of the routine, male and female dancers swapped clothing. Sandwiched between these two pieces was the most intimate performance, Bad Winter. The dance dates back to February, but its tenderness is evergreen. Two lovers performed a duet about a caring—but dying—relationship, affecting the withering lines of trust and compassion between them as one dancer, consumed in feverish activity, was met with motionlessness or apathy in the other. TMP has just embarked on a national tour, and audiences are sure to enjoy, as Boise has, McIntyre’s fertile imagination and artistic sensitivity. —Harrison Berry WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

Gwar unleashed gobs of gore at the Knitting Factory Nov. 8.
DIAMONDS AND FAKE BLOOD From blushing proposals to gushing fake blood, this week was all about audience engagement. On Nov. 7, Portland, Ore.’s Typhoon invited a member of the audience on stage at Visual Arts Collective to propose to his girlfriend. According to Boise Weekly’s Josh Gross, there were cheers when she accepted, but there were even more cheers when the band cut into its next song. “The genius of Typhoon is in its seeming contradictions. It is a giant band with a delicate touch,” said Gross. “It has epic instrumental arrangements with vocals like a hushed admission of guilt. A ukulele is strummed with a near-windmill motion. Even Morton’s guitar seems bigger than he is.” Gross also swung by the Idaho Book Extravaganza’s Author Awards ceremony Nov. 8 at Beside Bardenay. “After an open nomination process and juried judging, 29 awards were given in seven categories from around 50 books nominated for judging,” noted Gross. “Many of the authors took home several awards. … Top honors in ﬁction went to Alan Heathcock, for his story collection Volt, and to Kevin Carson in nonﬁction, for his book The Long Journey of the Nez Perce.” That same evening, BW’s Andrew Crisp raised his glass at the Sippin’ in the City event hosted by the Idaho Wine Commission at the Linen Building. “On Nov. 8, the second iteration of Sippin’ in the City sold out once more, though organizers capped attendance at 225 people instead of 250,” said Crisp. “Visitors piled into the Linen Building to circulate between 15 stations manned by winery staff.” While some were swilling vino, others were making a helluva ruckus at Red Room Nov. 8 for Wyoming punks Teenage Bottlerocket. According to Gross: “After a blazing opening set by locals Hotel Chelsea, which was performed with the sort of ﬁery energy one rarely sees outside of a cocaine bender, and the best kind of drunkpunk shitshow from The Useless—which argued, broke amps, forgot songs and blamed the whole thing on ‘not being blackout drunk for a change’—the Wyoming band took the stage.” But Gross said the crowd was even rowdier than the bands. “MVP is awarded to the old guy in the National Guard ﬁshing cap who freak-danced ladies in the mosh pit, stage-dived and took off his fake leg to shake at the band as a threat that they better keep the rock going,” said Gross. And speaking of keeping the rock going, costumed metalheads Gwar stormed the Knitting Factory stage Nov. 8. According to BW’s Harrison Berry, Gwar “killed” a number of ﬁgures, including “a priest, who sustained a blow to the head from a battle axe with grace and aplomb,” “Adolf Hitler, who was accused of being a ‘complete asshole’ before having his eyes and brains ripped from his skull” and “President Barack Obama, who was also hacked to pieces.” Berry added: “All of these deaths were accompanied by jets of pink gore that sprayed deep into the audience.” —Tara Morgan WWW.

LOCAL BUSINESSMEN New Jersey’s Titus Andronicus shills esoteric punk ANDREW CRISP
Glen Rock, N.J.-based, punk troupe Titus Andronicus has a love-hate relationship with the Garden State—including Bruce Springsteen. “Don’t tell me I was born free,” sings Patrick Stickles on the band’s new album, Local Business. “That joke has been old since Titus Andronicus is out to prove there’s more to New Jersey than The Boss. high school.” Yet Stickles can’t help but channel and lambaste The Boss as he struggles to make a case through the name of the record, which has a one of William Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays. that there’s more to New Jersey than Springsconﬂuence of meanings for Stickles. “I don’t think you need to know about teen.

Red Fang will bare its teeth at Boise.
RED HANDS AND RED FANG In this column, we’ve tracked the progress of the debut album from local band and world-class slowpokes Red Hands Black Feet. Consistently, the record has taken longer than BW reported it would, something that irks the bejeezus out of us—not just because we hate being wrong, but because we would like to listen to it. And as loath as we are to report on the status yet again and be inaccurate, a little birdy who plays guitar in the band swears it is now just down to mastering, and the album release is tentatively scheduled for December. As The Who said, we “pray we don’t get fooled again.” Another thing we were wrong about was Portland, Ore., metal wizards Red Fang. After the band’s mind-warpingly good performance at Neurolux last spring, we said the likelihood of seeing it in a club setting again was slim. We were wrong. Red Fang returns to Neurolux for a show Wednesday, Nov. 21, with another band named after colored mouth enamel: Black Tusk. The show starts at 7 p.m. and costs $13. Lord Dying is also on the bill. Another thing returning to Boise is Skate Night, the weekly night when you can pretend you’re still a high-school punk instead of an aging one. Skate Night goes down Wednesdays at The Shredder, with tunes courtesy of DJ Auz and half off on drinks for those shredding the skate ramp. Another band returning to The Shredder is Seattle hip-hop group The Knux, which has performed its signature mix of alt-rock and hip-hop with everyone from Lupe Fiasco and The Roots to Travis Barker of Blink 182. That show goes down Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 9 p.m and costs $5. Heibarger and The Gunﬁghters open. And ﬁnally, Boise is getting its second dose of “the invasion.” This time the attack will come from eastern Oregon Friday, Nov. 16. That’s the night that bands Sons of Guns, James Dean Kindle & The Eastern Oregon Playboys, Correspondence School and Echo Returns will schlep over the border and set up shop at Red Room, courtesy of the invasion-loving folks at Evil Wine. That show goes down at 7:30 p.m. and costs $5. —Josh Gross

ALICE COOPER, NOV. 21, REVOLUTION According to legendary shock-rocker Alice Cooper, his performances have one goal: “When we get up on stage, my band has the instruction: kill the audience,” Cooper told reporters on a conference call before Bonnaroo in June. Armed with guillotines, boa constrictors and electric chairs, Cooper fuses slasher ﬁlms and garage rock into a frenzied live performance. Fans who dare jostle close to the stage are often coated with fresh spurts of fake blood. His penchant for theater and a career spanning four decades has cemented the Detroit rocker’s spot as what Rolling Stone called “the world’s most beloved heavy metal entertainer.” In 2011, on the 30th anniversary of his 1975 classic Welcome to My Nightmare, Cooper dropped his 26th studio album, the more modern Welcome 2 My Nightmare. He quickly embarked on a tour to bring his buckets of guts across the country. —Andrew Crisp With Halestorm, 7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show, $35, $55 VIP.

DELICATE STEVE, NOV. 18, NEUROLUX New Jersey producer and guitarist Steve Marion formed Delicate Steve to play the solo record he recorded in 2010, Wondervisions. At ﬁrst, the band got more attention for its bio being written by bestselling rock ’n’ roll author Chuck Klosterman, a bio that included no information about the band whatsoever despite running some 1,500 words. “The critics unilaterally concur: Delicate Steve is a band who creates music,” it reads. But the instrumental, major-key tunes Delicate Steve recorded were ultra-catchy, and now the band has been compared to everything from Built to Spill to afropop. With expressively played guitars and Marion’s voice layered over calypso beats and synth riffs, the band grabbed the indie-rock generation’s ear the same way The Ventures turned the ear of 1960s rock ’n’ rollers. Now it’s the press release that is overlooked. —Josh Gross With Dana Bouy and Girl in a Coma, 7 p.m., $6 adv., $8 doors. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., 208-343-0886, neurolux.com.

STEAMPUNK SCULPTOR Molly Hill’s Asian-inspired work goes on display at Brumﬁeld’s Gallery in Hyde Park.
ISF ANNOUNCES 2013 SEASON The 2013 season of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival will be packed with royal skullduggery, a demon barber, a hilarious seance and much ado about youthful bliss. “We’ll open the season with Blithe Spirit, a production which I’ll be directing,” said Charlie Fee, ISF’s producing artistic director, referring to what many consider Noel Coward’s shining achievement. “We’ve cast Laurie Birmingham as Madame Arcati, the wonderful role of the eccentric medium and clairvoyant,” said Fee. Birmingham garnered praise during ISF’s 2012 season for her performance as the nurse in Romeo and Juliet. Blithe Spirit will be followed by Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Sharon Ott. “And the costumes for Much Ado will be designed by Paloma Young who just won this year’s Tony Award on Broadway for her production of Peter and the Starcatcher,” said Fee. The 2013 season’s big musical production will be Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. “Tom Ford will play Sweeney,” said Fee Ford has had numerous musical successes at ISF, including two previous Sondheim shows: Into the Woods and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. “And our main summer season will wrap with Richard the Third,” said Fee. “Our September production will be The Foreigner, an award-winning, contemporary American comedy by Larry Shue.” A full schedule of ISF’s 2013 season is expected to be mailed to festival subscribers in the coming weeks. Moving from the stage to the gallery, Brumﬁeld’s Gallery (formerly Basement Gallery) will welcome new work by Molly Hill with a show opening Saturday, Nov. 17 at 1513 N. 13th St. in Hyde Park. Hill’s paintings pay homage to Asian aesthetics interwoven with her own narrative. In this series she turns her attention to Polly Bemis, a Chinese pioneer and heroine whose home and ﬁnal resting place outside Riggins are preserved by the National Register of Historic Places. “The Chinese motif often expressed in my work is the outcome of a longtime interest in Chinese culture and history,” Hill wrote on her website. Hill’s work remains on display at the gallery through Saturday, Dec. 22. And in public art news, Idaho Ice World welcomed a new splash of color by Boise artist Byron Folwell. The public art piece, “Razor Sharp and Fast,” is an interactive metal sculpture animated with colorful LED lighting which responds to skaters as they glide by.
A look at Dave Britton’s strange and fascinating creations CHRISTINE RITCHIE On a rustic, rural plot of land on the outskirts of the Treasure Valley rests a blue, roomy home with funky portal windows. The house belongs to Dave Britton: sculptor, collector, hip-hop artist and businessman. Britton grew up in Ontario, Ore., before moving to Los Angeles at age 18. An avid believer in aliens, he eventually started a latex mask-making company and sold his alien resin head kits at special effects conventions. Now, back in Ontario—with his wife Karri, three children, two birds and four dogs—he creates steampunk masks and bizarre taxidermy trophy heads. Britton said he owes much of his inspiration to Star Wars and Mad Max. “They made a futuristic world with grungy, dirty items. Mad Max showed me [how] to put together what looks good together,” he said. Britton’s studio in an upstairs room in his home is full of unﬁnished projects—ray guns lie half assembled and hoses dangle from steampunk masks. Several fake guns are on display in the room, as are a miniature R2-D2 and a C3PO bust sporting a driver’s cap. Recording equipment takes up one corner, where Britton and his hip-hop group Destiny Lab make albums about aliens and God. Some of Britton’s more eye-catching projects are fantastical taxidermy trophy heads that blur the laws of nature. For one piece, he took a mold of a taxidermy stingray and painted an intricate alien trophy head on the surface, complete with a scaly skin texture, glass eyes and false teeth. Other similar creatures include the fusion of a fox’s head and a small shark’s head, both frozen in mid-snarl. “The thing about nature is that there’s no copyright on it,” Britton said of his trophy heads. By deﬁnition, the steampunk genre—a moniker applied to art, fashion and literature that blend Victorian culture with elements of science ﬁction—requires exquisite detailing. Britton has recently taken to setting aside his trophy heads in lieu of steampunk sculpting. While still relatively new to the genre, he excels in ﬁnding tiny, obscure pieces to complete popular steampunk items like ray guns, lamps and breathing apparatuses. Some items also serve a function beyond sculptural art. “Some of the lamps actually turn on,” he said. “I wore the breathing apparatus for

Halloween last year.” Dissecting the elements of one of Britton’s steampunk masks is a complex undertaking: pilot goggles, a slightly elongated snout and air ﬁlters on each side. A closer look reveals tiny clock gears decorating the straps, and the mouth is an old gas mask pieced together with various bolts and screws. Old leather cracks on the surface. In other masks, bug eyes replace the goggles or beaks take the place of a snout. Depending on the piece, hoses attach to the ﬁlters which connect to oxygen tanks that rest on the wearer’s back, and small hose clamps secure ridged tubes. Much of Britton’s work is viewable by to the public. He owns a shop in Nampa called Rusty Retro Antiques and Oddities, which consists mostly of oddities. Customers can spend hours perusing the strange items he sells—everything from taxidermy alligators to electric rock polishers. Britton ﬁts in at his shop, wearing a black T-shirt with an alien’s head crossed out under an unbuttoned shirt, a pair of glasses perched atop his nose. Several shelves scattered across the shop support old ceramic ﬁgurines, thermoses and telephones. A mirror with three moustaches painted on it rests on top of a red retro dining table. It’s deﬁnitely not the usual antiques shop. Kristen Randall runs the store, organizing the new items received daily and making friends with customers. “Some of the weirdest stuff sells,” said Randall. Britton’s work caught the attention of Boise’s branch of the RAW: Natural Born Artists organization, which provides local artists a chance to display and spread the word about their work. After Britton submitted photos of his trophy heads and steampunk sculptures, Amy Johnson Myers, the Boise director of RAW, was intrigued.
“Steampunk is really popular right now. I also really liked his latex masks of aliens. I was sitting at my computer looking at his stuff and yelled for my kids to come look,” Johnson Myers said. Britton enjoyed participating in the RAW showcase and the opportunities that it created to interact with the public. “It was like a party atmosphere; it made it easy to mingle,” said Britton. “Interacting face-to-face helps you personalize your work a lot more.” But face-to-face interaction isn’t Britton’s top priority. He wants to make a video game that takes place in an alternate universe. “Players can join and hunt creatures down. Whoever beats the game would win the actual trophy head of whatever they killed,” he explained. Britton said that 3D printing will make meeting his goal even more possible. “Players could print out the trophy head once 3D printers are household items,” he said. In a world that is increasingly fascinated by steampunk, science ﬁction, fantasy and personalization, Britton’s art has been taking off. It has been featured in publications including Make Magazine, Amazing Figure Modeler, Kitbuilders and Modeler’s Resource. In addition to hawking his wares at Rusty Retro, Britton has a few ray guns, jewelry and lamps featured at the new Subspace store at 556 S. Vista Ave. on the Boise Bench. As you exit Britton’s studio, one sculpture in particular stands out: the Zandarian Tree Dog—a creature with a short snout, tough whiskers and a black nose mounted on the wall. The addition of sabertooth tiger teeth, glass eyes, reptilian skin and a slightly longer neck distinguishes it as a fantastical creature straight out of Britton’s strange and fascinating mind.

LET’S GET METAPHYSICAL The Sessions is a rare consideration of our most intimate selves GEORGE PRENTICE There are many—perhaps too many—movies about sex, far fewer ﬁlms about love, and fewer still that consider intimacy. A couple of notable exceptions come to mind: 1978’s Coming Home and the French import Amour (a beautiful ﬁlm slated to come to Boise in early 2013). But I’m thrilled to report that The Sessions is Helen Hunt and John Hawkes explore intimacy in The Sessions. a ﬁne cinematic portrait of intimacy—that wonderfully mysterious space between takes far beyond our own handicaps to ﬁnd in the scenes between John Hawkes, who awkwardness and ecstasy.

ATTACK OF THE MORTZILLAS Volunteers make thousands of Basque blood sausages for annual dinner KEVIN HUELSMANN
WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
needed to cook more. The thick, black links were then hung from wooden racks suspended from tables in the basement. Little pools of fat collected below. By Nov. 2, volunteers were ready to vacuum package the mortzillas.
Other families require an almost quarantine-like approach; showers before coming home and separate hampers to keep the tainted clothing from contaminating anything else. But for many it just takes getting used to. “My kids all used to look at it and say, ‘Yucky!’” said Simon Achabal, who has been an integral part of the dinner since the 1960s. “I have three daughters, and now they all taste it.” Mortzillas don’t win over a lot ﬁrsttimers, but the blood sausages draw visitors from hundreds of miles away. All told, volunteers made nearly 3,000 mortzillas—some of which were sold after the dinner that served at least 300 people. The rest of the menu changes annually and is created by whomever is in charge that particular year. This time, offerings included meatballs, cod in piperade sauce, garbanzo beans and chorizo, and pumpkin pie. The dinner—which is followed by a massive game of bingo—is steeped in tradition. It’s been going on at the Basque Center for decades and is tied to historic events in Basque villages throughout Spain. Fermin Bilbao remembers a threeday festival for Saint Martin in his home village of Arrieta in the province of Biscay. Friends and family would travel to the small village to revel in food and drink, including mortzillas. People would start their day with mass, then head out to drink and dance in the streets. In the afternoon everyone would go home to eat a big meal before heading out for more drinking and dancing, he said. The money raised from the mortzilla dinner is used to pay for grants and scholarships administered by Euzkaldunak’s members. JU LIA GREEN
Every November the smell of beef blood, onions and leeks wafts out from the Basque Center, covering a several-block radius. It seeps into the clothes and clings to the skin of the dozens of volunteers who spend days making thousands of mortzillas, or Basque blood sausages, in the center’s basement on Grove Street. “It’s the one event when you go home and can smell it on your pillow,” former Euzkaldunak board member Ysabel Bilbao said. Making mortzillas (pronounced morcee-ahs) is typically a special occasion. In some Basque villages, farmers recruit neighbors to help slaughter a pig. They collect the blood and spend the day making sausages and eating various parts of the pig. “We would walk around and take it to neighbors,” said Benedicto Goitiandia, who has grown vegetables for the dinner for decades. Volunteers started collecting the ingredients for the annual mortzilla dinner at the Basque Center on Oct. 30 at Goitiandia’s farm. They picked thousands of leeks, pulled up even more onions, collected parsley and readied the entire haul to be brought downtown. On Oct. 31, from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., they cooked down the onions and leeks in huge stock pots until they were tender. Beef blood was added to the mixture along with parsley, oregano, garlic, black pepper and other spices and herbs—it’s the same recipe Goitiandia’s family used when he was growing up in the Basque country. The mixture was then stuffed in sausage casings and boiled two days before the event. Cooks checked the sausages by sticking a toothpick in them: If there was blood on the toothpick when it came out, the sausages
The sausages were stark black against the white plate on which they were served, Nov. 3 at Euzkaldunak’s annual event. For newcomers, a plate like this can be intimidating. Pleas and entreaties from friends and family coaxing unwilling eaters to take a bite echoed around the room. Some longtime residents and fervent mortzilla eaters have to make separate arrangements for family members who don’t partake. For a few kids this includes a predinner stop at McDonald’s.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): In old Christian and Islamic lore, the dove was a symbol of the holy spirit. The bird was considered so pure and sacred, that the devil, who was an expert shapeshifter, could not take on its form. The dove has a different meaning in other traditions, however. Among the ancient Greeks, it had a special relationship with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. In Rome, its eggs were regarded as aphrodisiacs. Drawing on all these meanings, I’m nominating the dove to be your power animal in the coming week. You will have an excellent chance to intensify your connection with divine truths through the power of love and eros--and vice versa. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your next assignment is to deepen and refine your relationship with your temptations. That doesn’t mean you should shed all caution and simply give in to them. Rather, I’m suggesting you escape the bind that makes you feel like you have to either ruthlessly repress your complicated longings or else thoroughly express them. Is there an in-between position you can find? A way you can appreciate the mysterious gift that the temptations confer and not be miserably obsessed by them? A perspective in which you’re neither tormented by guilt nor driven to compromise your integrity? GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re a bit like a professional jet pilot who is operating the pirate ship ride at an amusement park. You have resemblances to a top chef who’s shopping for gourmet ingredients in a seedy convenience store. In other words, Gemini, you may feel slightly off-kilter or dispossessed, even though you have a lot going for you. Here’s the best possible thing you could do while you wait for the fates to show you how to make a correction: Make it your intention to feel centered, poised and at peace exactly as you are right now. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Contrary to conventional wisdom, there is currently enough food available to feed everyone on the planet. The problem is, it’s not distributed efficiently. Some people get far more food than they need, and even waste a lot of it, while less fortunate folks go hungry. I invite you to think about whether you might have a metaphorically comparable situation in your own life, Cancerian. Is there a part of your psyche that’s wellnurtured but a different part that receives meager shares of love and support? Are you overstuffed in one way but starved in another? The coming weeks would be an excellent time to correct such an imbalance. (More on food: tinyurl.com/HungryWorld.)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This horoscope is not an advertisement for ceremonial shovels. I am receiving no payment from a ceremonial shovel company for suggesting that you procure a customized engraved gold digging tool for your own personal use. And I will feel fine if you don’t actually get a real one, but instead merely imagine yourself wielding a pretend version. The fact is, Leo, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do a groundbreaking ritual: to dig up the first scoop of metaphorical dirt in the place where you will build your future dream house, masterpiece or labor of love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I don’t think you’re fully aware of the game you’ve been immersed in. You may even be in denial that you’re playing it. If I’m right about this, please make it a priority to acknowledge what’s going on and identify the exact nature of the game. You can’t afford to be innocent about the subterranean forces that are in motion. It’s especially important not to be too nice and polite to see the complicated truth. Please note: There’s no need to be a cynical shark--that would be as inappropriate a response as being a sweet little lamb. But you should definitely activate your jungle senses. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): On Reddit.com, someone asked members of the community the following: What is your best unanswerable question? Among the more serious offerings were “What is love?”, “What is magic?”, “Why is there something as opposed to nothing?”, and “What is the meaning of life?” Then there were more avantgarde possibilities: “Where do squirrels go during hurricanes?”, “Could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that he himself could not eat it?”, and “If I asked you to sleep with me, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?” After evaluating the current astrological omens, Libra, I urge you to pose your own best riddle--a query that will provide maximum stimulation as you meditate on it during the next four months. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An environmental organization in New Zealand found that the local fishing industry wastes about 70 percent of its haul. In contrast, Iceland manages to use 96 percent of every fish caught. For example, New Zealand companies throw away most of the liver, roe and heads of the fish, while Iceland has come up with ways to take advantage of all that stuff. Judging from your current astrological omens, Scorpio, I conclude that it’s crucial for you to take your cue from Iceland rather than New Zealand in the coming weeks. Be inventive, efficient and
thorough in harnessing the power of all your raw materials. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “They will say you are on the wrong road,” said poet Antonio Porchia, “if it is your own.” I suspect you may have to deal with wrong-headed badgering like that in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. In fact, you could experience a surge of discouraging words and bad advice that tries to shoo you away from the path with heart. Some of the push may come from enemies, some from friends or loved ones, and some from deluded little voices in your own head. I hope you won’t be demoralized by the onslaught, but will instead respond like a brave hero who uses adversity as a motivating force. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I’m sure you’ve got thousands of practical details to attend to. Your schedule maßy be as busy as it has been in months. But I hope you will find time to do what I consider essential to your well-being, and that is to wander and wonder. In fact, let’s make that your motto: to wander and wonder. Even if it’s just for a few stolen moments between your serious appointments, allow yourself to meander off into the unknown and marvel at all the curious things you find. Be on the lookout for high strangeness that thrills your imagination, for exotic pleasures that titillate your lust for novelty, and for fertile chaos that blows your mind in all the right ways. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): James Joyce was a great novelist but not much of a fighter. He picked a more imposing and athletic buddy to go drinking with, though: Ernest Hemingway. If the two men encountered any alcohol-induced trouble, Joyce would slink behind his friend and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway, deal with him!” I don’t anticipate that you’ll be in the vicinity of any bar scuffles in the coming week, Aquarius. But I do think you would benefit from having a potent and persuasive ally on your side. It’s time to add some heft and clout to your arsenal of resources. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Is it possible that you have been too receptive and empathetic for your own good lately? I mean, I love how attuned you are to the ebb and flow of subtle energies--it’s one of your most winsome and powerful qualities -- but I fear you may be going too far. As heroic as it might seem to be the most sensitive and responsive person in a 10-mile radius, I’d rather see you work on being more self-contained right now. That’s why, for a limited time only, I’m recommending that you turn the full force of your touchy-feely solicitude on yourself.
