"The Life and Death and Rebirth of Boston’s Counterculture"

John Davis Boston, MA Boston

This is an amazing article from Boston Magazine! I thought I'd pass it along. "I begin my research in November with an email to Sam Potrykus, the closest thing Boston’s theoretically leaderless underground rock music scene has to a leader. I write in my email that I am investigating Boston’s vanishing counterculture, whatever that is, and am seeking a kind of Sherpa to help me navigate what’s ... ... more

all lowercase trend

boston_local Boston, MA Boston

There has been a trend for the last year or so where people have begun typing in all lowercase letters, and I've never heard an explanation. Ariana Grande is one of the biggest names that have taken to this trend on instagram. From searching the web the two answers for this trend seem to be: 1. It's a cool aesthetic. It has both a uniform look (all letters are roughly the same size) and also a ... ... more

Landlord Problems

Anna Brown Boston, MA Boston

Landlord problems after breaking my lease "On February 5th I received a job offer in another town and informed my landlord that I would need to leave Boston. They told me it wouldn't be a problem and that they would list the unit for March 1st. They also said that I was responsible for paying for the apartment until a qualified tenant could be located, but thought the space would be scooped ... ... more

You can pay people to tuck you into bed?!

John Jones Boston, MA Boston

Are you single? Do you live alone? No need to go to bed alone every night, because you can actually pay someone to tuck you into bed. In all seriousness, this is an actual service that people are paying for, at the bargain rate of $100. I don't know about you, but I definitely don't want a stranger coming to tuck me into bed! I'd be more scared having a random person come into my house at ... ... more

If you work in Boston you better live there

boston_local Boston, MA Boston

I've had so many friends complaining about their commute into Boston. Whether it be traffic, construction, accidents or how much train tickets cost, it seems everyone who commutes doesn't recommend it, so I thought I'd make a post about it. Yes, living in Boston is super expensive, but the amount of time, money and stress it takes to get into Boston in the morning is just not worth it, ... ... more

Are there any single women in Boston?

Bob Brown Boston, MA Boston

I've been living in Boston for a few years now and I swear every woman I've spoken to/tried to hit on said she was taken. Now maybe some of them just weren't interested in me, but I can't believe that EVERY woman I've spoken to is already dating someone. Does anyone else relate to this? ... more

Why do bars close so early in Boston?!

boston_local Boston, MA Boston

As arguably the greatest drinking city in the US, why does everything close so early? Other cities have clubs and bars that stay open until sunrise, most bars in Boston close at 1 or at the latest 2. Everyone wants bars to be open later, can anyone explain to me why everything closes so early? ... more
