Romney Rides The Train

Hey, governor, welcome to the T – The Boston Globe – Boston.com – Mass. – News

Romney, who lives in Belmont and is frequently driven around the state by an aide, visited the T stop yesterday to reassure commuters that the Boston subway remains safe despite the latest explosions in London. But his gaffe had some commuters fuming once again about the increase that went into effect in January 2004. Others simply got a good chuckle out of it, and one straphanger had a theory about Romney’s faux pas.

Mitt Romney took the T! Well, he want to Park Street anyway. I still think that $1.25 is an OK fare – but I’d like the Charley Card to be put to good use – like the NYC MetroCard. The gaffe in that blurb refers to Romney replying that a T ride costs $1.

Enough said!

Lets see how the rest of the weekend plays out for the Sox. Lots of fun all weekend long – White Sox until Sunday, then Tampa Bay on Monday. I hope to be enjoying all the highs and lows, lets just hope for more highs.

Music

Yesterday’s BOS concert was a lot of fun – and the weather couldn’t be any better. A group of young people were dancing to Mike Doughty’s tunes which attracted the attention of not only the crowd at Copley, but Mike himself. At one point he asked the crowd for a round of applause for the “real show”. I didn’t have my camera, so no pictures from me.

If you’re looking forward to Pearl Jam’s new tour, but then realize that the dates have not yet been set, perhaps you should schlep on over to Marshfield where you can see Backseat Lover – a PJ cover band that really does kick butt!

JAMIES

I’m off to NY (Long Island) tomorrow morning to visit the family, be back on Monday with a new bed frame from Ikea!

The Secret Life of Lobsters

There’s a great story here about the secret life of lobsters. Learn all you can about their hot and wild sex lives! New England is known for its lobster – and I agree with the author who says that the most humane way to cook one is to split it in half and broil it. No squirming in the boiling water!

Free Concert Today!

one

WBOS is presenting a free concert tonight:

Thursday, July 21st – Maia Sharp & Mike Doughty’s Band (co-headlining) 5:30pm

With the release of Maia Sharp’s new CD Fine Upstanding Citizen this past March, it is obvious why she has gained so much support in the past while touring with artists such as Edwin McCain and Art Garfunkel and also having songs featured on other artists cds such as the new Trisha Yearwood and Bonnie Raitt albums. Maia’s single Something Wild has received a lot of positive feedback and it appears as though Maia will continue to have a musical future. To visit the website, click here

Mike Doughty’s new album, Haughty Melodic features a number of unique songs with the help of a full band. This is the first time he has been in the company of a full band since the 2000 split of Soul Coughing. The song, Tremendous Brunettes on Haughty Melodic features a guest appearance from Dave Matthews. To learn more about Mike Doughty, you can click here

I’ll be there singing along with Mike Doughty. Will you be there?

Check them out and say hello!

It’s so freakin’ HOT!

Thank the maker for central air conditioning!

Even though the thermometer outside says its about 88 degrees, the smarty pants folks at http://boston.weather.com say the humidity is making it feel like a 100+ degree day – and I do concur!

Too bad the Red Sox aren’t as hot!

This article in the herald talks about the fiasco – we’re no longer in first!

From that article:

“If it were later on in the season, it would be (a concern) but we caught fire around this time last year, and I expect us to do it again,” said Johnny Damon, who was 0-for-5 to snap his 29-game hitting streak, the fourth-longest in club history.

Hopefully the Sox will come alive again – it’s no fun to win in the beginning! We need drama as Sox fans. It would be lame if we were constantly in first place.

Speaking of hot, El Oriental in Jamacia Plan was apparently firebombed!

London Is Not Afraid

Looks like someone made a cool mosaic of pictures to show the world that London is Not Afraid.
