Boston Callinged

May 29, 2015

Went to Boston Calling on the weekend. What is Boston Calling? Only one of the better music festivals that our region has to offer, of course. It happens twice a year, once in the pre summer of May, and in September. Smack dab in the heart of Boston. A three day pass surely gives you the most bang for your buck. Easy to get to from the train, within walking distance of Quincy Market and several other popular Bostonian locales. Bring your water and your sunscreen, and your friends, and let the good times roll as it were. Dance your flippin’ heart out, see some of your favorite bands, and pick up a whole bunch of free shit along the way. This time the amazing headliners were Beck, Pixies, and My Morning Jacket, diversity enough right there if you ask me. Throw in some Tenacious D, Tove Lo, Marina and The Diamonds, Jason Isbell, The Lone Bellow, Tame Impala, St. Vincent, and Halsey, and you’ve got yourself a grand old time. Three days, lots of music, lots of free stuff, lots of fun, in Boston, what else do you need? And the September lineup is killer. Go Go Go!

September is coming..

August 30, 2014

Now, how the fuck did that happen? Time seems to be moving very erratically these days, with the weeks that feel like entire months, and the days that feel like hours, and the hours that sometimes feel like days. So that being said, isn’t it silly that we ever try hard to quantify time, when it seems to have it’s own agenda in relation to our individual perceptions? If time is geting away from you, there is one thing that just might help you. Find a call to action, because they speak louder than words and all that. Find your passions, your drives, your motivations, the things and maybe the people that you would do anything for. When you find those things, keep them close. You will thank me later. Life really doesn’t have to be as complicated as some people make it out to be, which brings us back to time. If you want something now, don’t make it your goal later on, make it your goal now. I am guilty of letting my goals and dreams fall by the way side several times in the last few years, and let me tell you, it’s no good. If you have a goal stick with it. Yes, there may be setbacks and whatever, but if you don’t try of course you can’t get it. But time is going, at all kinds of speeds, and if you say, “I’ll get to it when I have more time,” you’ll keep saying that, and you’ll run out of time. So live your life and do it now. And find your dreams.

Fringe:Brave New World Part II

May 14, 2012

This week’s finale was superb.  What I find most mind blowing about this episode is that it brought together nearly everything that had been confusing us for this entire season.  Fringe is the only show that seems to get this down season after season.  We spend the entire season wondering about certain events, or why certain characters are important, yada yada.  And then once we get to the finale, it unravels like a mystery novel, and you’re like I didn’t see that coming, but it’s all so obvious now. Very few shows these days have such power over me as a viewer.  I also love that no matter how crazy things get, it’s the character relationships that are the true meat and potatoes of this series.  Season 5 has been announced to be the last, but I know for sure that they will do all they can to make it the most explosive, most mind-bending crazy season yet.  And that’s saying something, for a show that is always like that.  

Spoilers Follow!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, the altered timeline that we have grown so accustomed to over these last 22 episodes has brought us yet another face we thought we would never see, that being William Bell, played by the terrific, Leonard Nimoy.  We spent the majority of the first two seasons thinking he was the villain to realize that he was doing his part to save the futures of the two universes.  Take away Peter at the end of Season three, and all of a sudden, Bell resurfaces in the altered timeline as the man who plans to destroy both universes in order to become God of a third.  Walter confronts his old friend in much dismay, and cannot abide this.  William has used cortexiphan to turn Olivia into his power source for collapsing the two universes, and not only that, he proclaims that the sacrifice of every living creature in the two worlds is a sacrifice worth making in the name of science.   Olivia and Peter come just in the nick of time to stop him.  I will not divulge those details, for the ending is perfect.  But I am blown away by just how good the writing on this show is, and how when you think there is no possible way it could all wrap up in this last episode, it does, and satisfyingly at that.  September made this episode all the more enjoyable, trying to wrap our heads even more about the way the Observers move through time.  For a man that apparently has no emotion, he sure cares what happens to our Fringe team, and for that I am forever grateful to him.  The episode wraps up like a Series finale, except for the final scene where September warns Walter, “they are coming…”  I thought 419: Letters of Transit, was just a tease, a glimpse into a parallel future, when it turns out that it is in fact, the future of our universe, and the setting for the final Fringetastic season!  We only have three years to prepare for the takeover, be ready.  Observe everything.
