On the Town: January 31, 2013

A little birdie tipped me off to the fact that there was some minor sporting event happening this weekend, coincidentally the same day as the Animal Planet Puppy Bowl (this year featuring hedgehog cheerleaders). It's called the Super Bowl, and apparently it's the XLVIIth one that's been held. The Baltimore Ravens (presumably a bunch of Edgar Allen Poe enthusiasts from Maryland) and the San Francisco 49ers (presumably a group of Californian residents who enjoy calling Germany on long distance) will do physical battle in tight, white pants to see who will win a giant, jewel-encrusted ring. Beyoncé will sing at this event's intermission (this is beginning to sound like the gayest thing ever).

Without further ado, I present to you three #BostonArts events #OnTheTown that I promise will have you home by tee-off at 6:30—If you can't be an athlete, be an athletic supporter! Tweet me your game day plans @khemingway or leave them in the comments below!

Oh say can you see! Not since Whitney Houston's chart-topping, best-ever rendition has a performance of The Star Spangled Banner garnered so much attention (except for, of course, Christina Aguilera's 2011 Superbowl creative lyric reworking). On Monday, the Twittersphere (with especially emphatic contributions from gays everywhere) blew up with live accounts, photos, GIFs, and video of Beyoncé's epic national anthem performance. Then, like a shot, the news broke Tuesday that Beyoncé had actually lip synced to an audio track she recorded at an earlier date. Aretha Franklin cast some shade, but in the end, I'm left with this quote from Steven Tyler: “Beyoncé's so hot she can do anything. Let's just get real.” As long as Queen B wasn't lip-syncing to someone else's voice (and why on earth would she want to?), what's the big deal?! In light of these recent events, I present to you #OnTheTown: The one with guaranteed live singing!

Per usual, let me know what you're up to in the comments below or by tweeting me @khemingway.

Well, friends, if the weather this past week hasn't turned you onto the concept of global warming, I have no idea what possibly could. At one point yesterday, it was warmer here in Boston than it was in Los Angeles, something I never thought I'd ever see happen (at least, not in mid-January). Then, like a flash, we're under a three inches of snow. Not the Rapture, the end of the Mayan calendar, or even Honey Boo Boo have yet successfully marked the end of the world; but it's likely that the slow warming of the earth will bake this place up like a fallen chocolate soufflé(note to self: bake this fallen chocolate soufflé before the world ends). Before the polar ice caps melt and we all relocate to Mars, let's take some time to take in some #BostonArts! So without further ado, I present to you #OnTheTown: Dude, what season is it?

If you're not among the sensible set who watched a pirated version when it aired in the UK months ago, you are just now witnessing the perfection that is series 3 of Downton Abbey. Everyone's favorite high-budget mostly-historically-accurate primetime soap opera is back, and better than ever (especially now that the legendary Shirley Maclaine has joined the cast). With such a fierce competitor for Dame Maggie's Dowager Countess, some wedding action, and new opportunities for extreme drama, sit back and enjoy #OnTheTown: The one with all the Downton!

Well friends, we made it. It's 2013. Time to leave our old, awful selves in the past and concentrate on completing what, at midnight on January 1, seem like completely reasonable and attainable goals. Join a gym. Call home more often. Volunteer. SEE MORE #BOSTONARTS!
