Review: Ghosts of Jupiter - 6/22

6/22/2012 01:11:00 AM 3 Responses
Bloggery media rep recently checked out the new Ghosts of Jupiter show at the MOS premiering 6/22.

I had the chance to swing by the Museum of Science to catch a preview of "Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience" at the Charles Hayden Planetarium.  The Boston-based rock band, Ghosts of Jupiter, provides the perfect musical pairing to the eye popping visualizations and effects.  The display also makes full use of the latest technological upgrades, including brand new sound and image projection systems, to make the experience breath taking.  If you're a fan of rock and roll, and like watching pretty effects set to sound, you'll love this show on June 22.  Tickets are only $10 for adults with other ticket options also available.

Free: Concert Streaming from the BSO

6/20/2012 10:18:00 PM 0 Responses
Just a quick heads up, the BSO has launched a new program where they're streaming some of their concerts free online.  They're starting with the last 3 concerts of the past season.  I also got an email that Tanglewood is celebrating their 75 anniversary by posting one concert each day for 75 days starting on 6/20.


In partnership with 99.5 Classical New England, a service of WGBH, the 128 kbps streams will be provided by WGBH's live concert broadcasts and made available through the BSO Media Center the Monday or Tuesday after the program's premiere at Symphony Hall (details about Tanglewood concert streaming will be announced at a later date). These concert streams will be available on bso.org/mediacenter for up to a year after the original performance, surpassing the usual industry standard of just a few weeks.

I don't have any details, but I just heard that they've started casting calls for:

"Untitled Buddy Cop Comedy" starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy The film is shooting in Boston this Summer

I love Sandra Bullock.  Hope she's filming in Boston proper and not the burbs, otherwise I won't get to see her.  I'll keep you guys posted if I hear anything more.

Wine Gifts from Wine.com

6/20/2012 10:12:00 PM 0 Responses
I've reached the age (I'm 30) where everyone around me seems to be graduating from something, getting married, or having kids.  Meanwhile, I'm sort of stuck in limbo - it's ok, though, I'm enjoying limbo.  But the problem that arises is that I find myself online constantly ordering shower gifts, graduation gifts, etc.  I'm not sure who loves me more at this point, American Express or Crate and Barrel. 

So I'm trying to mix things up a little bit now.  For my last baby shower shower gift, I bought my friend Phil the "Go the F*ck to Sleep" (sort of) kids book.  Google it, it's hilarious.  Oh and if you happen to get the audio book, it's narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. 

Friends getting married are of course registered somewhere, so I end up choosing from wherever they are registered. 

This leaves me my graduating from med/law/grad school friends, where I have a little more leeway, so I've been sending them booze.  Everyone loves alcohol.  And that's pretty much how everyone celebrates nowadays, right?  For those that are in town, I'll of course show up in person and buy a rew rounds of shots.  But if they're out of town, I find that Wine.com does a good job of providing a selection of gifts with a wide price range - you know so I can choose depending how much I really like the person.  I also use them for myself because often times I'll read about a wine in Wine Spectator and then end up not being able to find it in any of the nearby wine stores.  It's way less frustrating to just go online and order it.

Road Trip: 2 Free Sliders at White Castle

6/19/2012 06:12:00 AM 0 Responses

This post brought to you by White Castle. All opinions are 100% mine.

White Castle Logo.pngSo I've never had White Castle before.  But ever since watching Harold and Kumar all those years ago, I've always wanted to try it.  Sadly, there are none close by.  However, tt really doesn't take much to convince me to do ridiuculous things when the weather is nice out, so here's my plan. 

I'm heading down to the Hamptons for a weekend next month.  According to the restaurant locator, there is a White Castle in Manhattan.  So, I'm thinking there are going to be some pre-Hamptons sliders.  I just joined White Castle's Craver Nation program so the first 2 will be free (screenshot below).  And if they're delicious, methinks there will be some post-hamptons sliders as well.

White Castle is also running a couple of other promotional challenges right now that you should check out (you could win some concert tickets or a macbook air).

1.  Write and sing The Craver Nation National Anthem.

2.  White Castle® Road Trip! - Edit one of your road trip photos to include a White Castle Slider and then upload it to your account.

Kia Rio Scavenger Hunt

6/16/2012 06:04:00 PM 2 Responses
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio. All opinions are 100% mine.
The folks over at Kia asked me to share a short L.A. scavenger hunt video with you guys.  I'm kind of fond of those hamster commercials that they have, so I couldn't say no.  It also kind of makes me miss having my car.  For those of you that forgot, I sold my car last year because I just wasn't using it enough and it was getting pricey paying for parking and insurance for something I was rarely using.  Check out the video below:


Kind of makes me want to visit LA, especially because of all the rain we've been having.  And a Scavenger Hunt is a nice way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time.  The last scavenger hunt I went on was at Rutgers New Brunswick - it was wayyyyy less glamorous. 
If you're curious, here are the five spots that they hit:
• The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round
• Amoeba Records
• Rodeo Drive
• Pink’s Hot Dogs
• The Roosevelt Hotel
I had yogurt, granola, and a banana for dinner tonight.  Now I really want a chili dog.  That thing looked delicious.  Adding Pink's to the list of places to visit when I go to L.A. and crash with my buddy Yamashita.
I wonder how long the teams ended up spending at Amoeba Records searching for that proverbial needle in the haystack.  That was probably the toughest of the 5 challenges.  
And now a few of my thoughts on the car.  I've never actually driven a Kia, but I do like that they packed a bunch of features into the car (Bluetooth, USB, Navigation, Rear Camera Display).  My old Yukon had navigation, but that was about it .... that and GM wanted 200 bucks a year for updated map discs.  And it seems like the future is all about voice commands.  Apple's got Siri and Kia's got UVO.  Oh and lastly, if I were to drive a Kia Rio, I'd probably have an easier time parking in the city than I did with my Yukon. 
Any readers out there test driven or own a Rio?  Any thoughts to add?

National Lobster Day - 6/15

It's National Lobster Day on Friday.  Go eat some lobster .... or dress your kid as a lobster for fun. 


Here are a few of my personal favorite spots for lobster:

Boston:  Neptune Oyster's Hot Lobster Roll (here)
Cambridge:  Alive & Kicking's Lobster Sandwich (here)
Rockport:  Roy Moore Lobster Co (here)

Ok, yes Rockport is a little far.  But when I think lobster, I think about the time I drove there, ordered a 3lb female lobster and then watched as they fished one out of a tank and steamed (or boiled?) it for me right away.  So delicious....

Book Signing - David Hill - 6/12

6/04/2012 09:05:00 PM 0 Responses
ImprovBoston continues to present some of the top touring comics of today with their IB Presents series. In June, comedian, writer, musician, and actor Dave Hill is heading to ImprovBoston to read from his new book, Tasteful Nudes, and entertain audiences with his stand-up. Hill will be at ImprovBoston for one-night only, Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $12-$16.

Dave Hill is a comedian, writer, musician and actor. He hosts the show The Dave Hill Explosion at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York and Hollywood and recently starred in the television show The King of Miami on the MOJO HD network. The show is now airing on Film24 in the UK. Dave currently appears as on-air talent for HBO and Cinemax. He has also worked extensively for the comedy website Super Deluxe. In 2007, Variety Magazine named Hill one of their "10 Comics to Watch". He appeared at HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado that same year.

Tasteful Nudes is Hill’s first collection of essays. From his book jacket, “As you can probably imagine, it pretty much has everything. In fact, if you like stories about stolen meat, animal attacks, young love, death, naked people, clergymen, rock 'n' roll, irritable Canadians, and prison, you have just hit a street called Easy because my book talks about all that stuff and a bunch of other stuff, too.”
