For One Kansas City Artist, 'Open Spaces' Means Extra Room To Breathe

Through late spring and into early summer, Kansas City artist Dylan Mortimer searched the trees in Swope Park for signs of death. He found a 40-footer that was dead for sure, but the park staff told him it was too close to the road and hazardous; they cut it down.

Disturbed - Are You Ready is the song of the day and this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .


  1. Fabulous "art" like this surely must be very expensive.
    After this thoughtful purchase, is there anything left of the $500,000 the taxpayers unwittingly ponied up for Sly's Art at Swope Park" fiasco?

  2. The Platte county Marijuana dealers jumped the gun. Probation until November, than tax them and let the sales begin. Pot should make the state money not cost it.

  3. So the "Developers" receiving TIF to turn the Flashcube into Section 8 housing have now been approved to pay for cut-rate labor!

    But the "Illegals" are supposed to leave the Country! Who'll pick the crops and install roofs then, let alone install the elevators and fire stairs and windows in this building?

    Oh, and be prepared to start changing your own Hotel sheets folks, unless, that is, you're staying in a place run by one certain Unnamed Organization (starts with 'T') that is getting all the exceptions to "hiring foreigners" rules it wants.

  4. Having a widow in your apartment in that building will be a luxury. Who wants to live without a window ? Poorly designed building for people, was it full of computers or unhappy workers ?

  5. Oh, it was a notorious s**t hole to work in from Day One.

    Depending on where your desk was located, you either burned up in the morning or sweltered in the afternoon, if you weren't huddled in the dark chilly center.

    The initial layout was a typical banking "prairie dog farm" of cubicles (heads popping up at each unusual sound", with "executive offices" and conference rooms around the outside, but the management soon learned to migrate inward and banish the proles to the outside.


  6. Sheriff Mark Owen said in a statement, “Thanks to the hard work of our deputies more drugs have been removed from the streets of Platte County. Drugs, including marijuana, present a hazard to our citizens and we will continue our efforts to remove it from our streets.”

    Give me a fucking break. Mark, get a clue you imbecile. Nobody believes this old lie anymore. The tide has shifted.
