Should We Talk About the Weather?

Is it just me, or is this the coldest May in history? Next weekend is Memorial Day for cring out loud, and we still have temperatures in the mid-50s. This ain’t right. I’m supposed to be planting tomatoes and peppers this weekend, but I’m afraid its far too cold for them!

Do you like Jamaica Pond? Steve Garfield sure does!

A new library has opening in Harvard Square – made up entirely of ‘zines. Great story about it here

I have now seen Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – twice. Once on opening day in Manhattan, and … a few minutes ago on the Common. I’m a huge Star Wars fan, and will be even after having seen the prequels. The New Yorker has the best review of the movie to date. It might actually be the best movie review I’ve ever read in my life. Why isn’t Boston Magazine more like the New Yorker? Is that by design? Are we not big enough to require a large, literary publication?

    I don’t think that’s by Boston Magazine’s design, no, or whatever company happens to own it. Personally, I’d like to see if it would be possible to see Boston MetBlogs take on a New Yorker style and relevance.

    I agree – now how can we get Boston MetBlogs to be more like the New Yorker?

    Aside from the traditional idea of blog entries, try articles, or miniature exploratory ventures (a la Talk of the Town); show off your expertise every once in a while; keep tabs on people you’d want to bring together to write under one heading; and — ideologically — why not try and fill Boston up the way Joyce did Dublin?

    About the weather: my brother-in-law said last night that the average temp at this time of the year should be twenty degrees higher than it is. Brrrrrrr!

    third coldest May on record – the normal average temperature for May in Boston is 58.5 degrees, this month’s average has been 51.4

    our “New Yorker” was called the Atlantic Monthly and it just left town in case anybody didn’t notice. Boston Magazine is a disgrace.
