The Original Zings of Comedy, featuring extended stand-up sets, is at the Improv Boston every Thursday at 8. Pat Bocuzzi and Nat Towsen are the hosts.
From an interview in the Dig:
Dig: WHAT’S A “ZING”?
NT: A “zing”–also known as a “burn,” a “zap,” a “whammy” and a “good old-fashioned Texas skittlebump”–is an appropriation of a seemingly harmless first half of the sentence into an utterly degrading syntax.
Dig: UH … WHAT?
PB: Elton John called … he wants his sexuality back! Zing!
On Thursday, Moon Boot Lover takes the stage at Fanueil Hall’s hottest location to see live original music Hennessy’s Upstairs.
So, now your week is planned! Go out and see some great live local music!
If we didn’t have enough music with Sweep the Leg playing at Hennessy’s on Sundays, well now we have Stained Glass Eye playing next door at Paddy O’s. The best part? Stained Glass Eye is on from 7-11 and Sweep the Leg is on from 10-1:30. This means you can rock out all night and see 2 great Boston bands!
So, don’t let the weekend end and enjoy some rockin’ Sunday nights!
Come join in on a worldwide street art competition.
MetBlog Berlin provides the rules:
1) Join our Flickr pool: http://www.flickr.com/groups/metrobloggingstreetart/
There is a limit of three pictures per day.
2) The contest effectively started yesterday and will run for two weeks. Then a voting process will start to find a city’s Top 3 streetart pieces.
3) After the local heros are chosen, we run another global contest to crown king of all. Top of the world, Master of the Universe – you know the deal! The Top 3 from each city will enter this contest.
And so it begins. The hundred million dollar man era starts today for the Red Sox. Are you ready?
