Cannoli-Eating, Patois-Speaking, North End Good and Evil

Sunday was sunny, so I went for a walk around the adjacent neighborhood–the North End. I was on a pilgrimage ( of sorts) to the Church of Saint Leonard of Port Maurice, which incidentally, I had visited before, but had not gone into for reasons that I don’t recall. Anyway, there I was, standing off […]

When it’s done right

When it’s done right, the musicians at the T-stations add a layer of drama and intrigue to a 5 minute wait. This guy does it right.

The hilarious thing about this article is not the content, but the comments that follow it.  This is one of my favorites: Well, Flynne, not everybody who reads the reporting in […]

Boston joins Google Transit…just in time!

I saw this on Boston.com today, and was more than a little excited. A month ago when we started the process of moving to Boston I noticed that MBTA was absent from the list of systems that Google Transit offered. As a newcomer to the area on my way to a job interview I used [...]

Robert Hughes on Antonio Lopez Garcia.

Since Lopez Garcia has his first retrospective in the U.S. at the MFA, I thought it would do good to link to Hughes’ article: There are some artists whose work compels assent almost as soon as you see it. Its seriousness announces itself in precision, gravity, lack of obvious fluidity; in a fastidiousness that could be [...]
