Re: Black Mass Tidbit #3 - North Boston and Outlying Areas

Goodness, that man really did have poor taste in pants, didn't he?
Won't be visiting Caffe Pompei any time soon.

Though totally inconsequential to this book discussion, I'll add two more championships: Red Sox in 2013, Bruins in 2011.

Re: Black Mass Tidbit #2 - Old Harbor Project

My grandmother, a single mother and full-time bookkeeper, raised my mother and uncle in Old Harbor Village from about 1942 to 1948. Looking at those 1939 photos, I believe they had a unit on the third floor. Mom has many tales of walking to and from Boston Girls' Latin School, summer days at Carson ...

Re: Just Kids Tidbit #32 - A Patti Smith Playlist

Thank you, fireflydances, that was wonderful.

I've been listening to Patti since my college roommate introduced me to Horses in 1976. I have a special fondness for the song Pissing in a River from Radio Ethiopia. Can't express just why. I am going to have to go listen to it right now ;-)

This really made me smile. Oh, the memories of my misspent youth... No, that's not right. Oh, the voyage of discovery.

Re: The Washington Post revisits Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas

Thank you, Charlene. It is always a pleasure to read an appreciation of the good Doctor's work, especially when it brings to mind one's own first gonzo encounter. ;-)

Thank you, Liz! He does nice eyes, gemini, doesn't he? I have read four of Perez-Reverte's novels and, like Magpie, The Flanders Panel is my favorite thus far. The Club Dumas is next for obvious reasons, but also because the world of high-end book collecting is fascinating to me. The Fencing Master ...

I won't be around to join in Sunday, but thought I'd share this seredipitous experience.

The Noble Criminal. Hmmm, who could that possibly describe? :capnjack:

Upon reflection, I think we'll find Johnny's career littered with anti-hero roles.
