Decades and Days of the new
Gypsy Tailwind’s with Gervasi, and don’t skip a beat
After the bombast of Grace , Gypsy Tailwind’s sophomore record, full of strings and horns and big arrangements worthy of a Nashville studio, the opening to their brand-new Decades and Days seems decidedly intentional.

We love you, stressed-out college kids! So relax, and remember how good you have it.
As advocates of higher education and living as long as medically possible, we were sad to read that, according to new-media-powerhouse Web site the Daily Beast, Greater Boston is home to not one but five of the most stressful colleges in the United States.

Boston Turkish Film Festival 2010
Divine madness rules the ninth annual Turkish Film Festival
In a scene in Çagan Irmak's IN DARKNESS (2009; April 3 at 3 pm), one of several provocative films in this year's Boston Turkish Film Festival at the Museum of Fine Arts, a woman explains to a TV interviewer that her political party is neither for Shari'a — extremist Islamic rule — nor for right-wing military coups. Well, good luck to her.

The scene is familiar: the vast blue sky, the expanses of sand, and, atop a distant hill, Jesus delivers the Sermon on the Mount to a rapt throng.

Blessed are the cheesemakers?

The long good-byes
Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction, live at the Comcast Center, June 3, 2009
Some time in the late 90s, Trent Reznor holed himself up in a house near the ocean. Ostensibly, he was there to write some music. And while he did use that time to begin piecing together some of the songs that would become Nine Inch Nails's 1999 double-album The Fragile , Reznor.
