On the Town: Opus is On Fire

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Mar 28, 2013 8:00:00 AM | 0 comments | On the Town

Well, friends, you had best call the fire department*, because the results are in. Opus Affair is officially on fire. On Tuesday night, BostInno held their first annual 50 on Fire event, naming Opus Affair one of 50 of the city's "inventors, disrupters, luminaries, and newsmakers" (did I mention this was out of over 2,000 nominees and 200 finalists?). We are just humbled and grateful that the folks at BostInno and the countless nominators from the public think so much of what we do here. Also, we got a thing!! So, now, what better way to uphold the idea behind this award than to sally forth on another action packed #BostonArts weekend? I apologize in advance if we leave scorch marks behind...

On the Town: March 22, 2013

This week's blog is about spring. Specifically, where in God's name is it? Nobody seems to know. It's nearly April and I trudged through snow and rain inches deep to get to work this week. Global warming is, very apparently, quickly taking hold of us and showing no mercy. Fortunately, I have the perfect solution for you! When you go take in some #BostonArts this weekend, you'll be doing so from the climate controlled beauty of my number one favorite thing in the entire world: the indoors. Therefore, grab an umbrella, get into your hazmat suit, and bring some extra sunscreen for your face. It's spring.

On the Town: Happy Pope Day!

What's new, Buenos Aires?! Pope Francis, that's what! (Sorry, I couldn't help myself.) Seriously, though, history was made this week as white smoke billowed out of that famous Vatican chimney and Jorge Mario Bergoglio stepped into those fabulous red [not] Prada loafers, thus transforming into Pope Francis—the first non-European pope since the year 741 (not a typo).

What better way to celebrate this momentous occasion than to head out #OnTheTown this weekend for some fabulous #BostonArts?! Therefore, I give you #OnTheTown: Happy Pope Day!

On the Town: Filibuster Edition

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Mar 7, 2013 7:00:00 AM | 0 comments | On the Town

According to Internet wealth of knowledge Wikipedia, a filibuster is "any dilatory or obstructive tactic used to prevent a measure from being brought to a vote." This week, Rand Paul (not to be confused with Paul Rand or RuPaul) engaged in such behavior to delay some important political stuff. This, however, is a far cry from the longest filibuster in American history when Strom Thurmond, a senator from South Carolina, filibustered all over the place for 24 hours and 18 minutes. My main question about all this is, well, when has he been emptying his bladder?
