105. weekend to-do's

  1. a second chance to watch a beautiful film. i missed out on getting tickets to the sold-out screenings of the assassin when it came to cambridge back in october. lucky for me, the brattle theater is bringing it back for an encore. i'm so excited to see this latest offering by famed taiwanese director hou hsiao-hsien (this film earned him the award for best director at the cannes film festival).
  2. warm up. there is nothing more satisfying on a cold day than a steaming bowl of ramen. yume wo katare in porter square is legendary for having the best ramen in the cambridge/boston area. the lines can be long - but always well worth the wait!
  3. comic crush. i recently purchased both volumes of the comic series low for andy. however, the cover art was so irresistibly beautiful that i had to take a peek - and now i'm hooked. this stunning post-apocalyptic tale of an undersea city promises to keep me enthralled all weekend.
  1. it's show time. i'll be playing a show at great scott tonight with my band parks. bowery boston has put together a solid bill including other local bands, eternals and air traffic controller. and, we'll be playing an extra special cover that i can't wait to sing!
  2. dance time. i'll be supporting a good friend as she participates in the 11th season of danceworks boston. over 190 dancers will be performing original choreographed pieces featuring a mix of dance styles from lyrical, jazz, tap, all the way to hip hop. can't wait to cheer her on.
  3. winter time, hike time. in an effort to keep moving, i'm going to get some trail time in at the blue hills reservation in canton. and, while it's not snowing yet, they do have a ski area once it's starts coming down.
