Cinema paradisos

As Hollywood's summer fare goes cold, local film festivals heat up
Here's the dilemma: you love movies, but you also love the idea of taking a vacation to one of the many inviting resorts that New England has to offer — the beaches of Cape Cod or the Islands, picturesque towns in Maine or Rhode Island, or even the cultural and historical enclaves of Boston itself.

Pop-up pirate

A first-time surfer takes to the waves
I've written first-hand about trapeze lessons, smelt fishing, and cruise vacations (oh, my!), but as I headed toward surf lessons at Scarborough's Higgins Beach one morning in May, I had more butterflies in my stomach than usual.

Bike Week and beyond

From bike week to bike month, a line-up of great rides, summits, and get-togethers are helping make 2010 the year of the bike in Boston.
Boston is a great bicycling city. Sure, you have to deal with sociopathic, maniacal motorists who’ve never heard of a turn signal. And yes, you have to contend with a bunch of inconsiderate, entitled pedestrians who act like they own the road and can wander across the street whenever they feel like it, then give you a dirty look as you whiz by them.

Cycle killers

With its own porn, polo, and personalities, bike culture in Boston isn’t just about getting to work any more
Clearly, this isn’t the sport of gentlemen unfolding at, say, the Myopia Hunt Club in Hamilton, but rather urban bike polo at a street-hockey pit in Allston. Many are dressed in black and look like refugees from a club Goth night. Participants sometimes wear Mexican-wrestler masks, while others have no shirts on at all.

Review: Theodore Treehouse at Slainte Wine Bar Mardi Gras

Music Seen
A few weeks back, Theodore Treehouse made a brief appearance in this spot, lending the band the quote that now appears on their MySpace page: "Even the bike punks couldn't resist bopping their heads."

Review: The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D

Big waves, little ripples
There’s nothing more envy-inducing during a Boston winter night than watching a pack of surfers hit the pristine beaches of Tahiti. But beyond the warmth and beauty of the island, this film fails to deliver a cohesive message.

Short-form Portland

The 10 best LPs and EPs of 2009
I can hear the snarky comments already: "What?!? Rustic Overtones put out an album this year and Pfeifle hasn't fallen all over himself naming it #1? The sky is green!" But this isn't 1999. It's 2009. And it isn't all that strange for a phenomenal album to hit Portland's city streets anymore.

Conquer the cold

Banish winter blahs with energizing outdoor fun
Any New Englander worth his salted cod knows that the key to beating seasonal hibernation-induced depression is adherence to one simple motto: Leave The House.

Review: A Boy and His Blob

Childhood memories, improved
A Boy and his Blob got its start as a 1989 Nintendo game designed by David Crane, who also designed Pitfall! . This 2009 remake features Miyazaki-inspired art and cel-shaded animation, giving the maps a storybook quality. Unfortunately, the story itself still leaves much to be desired; no further complexity has been layered onto the 1989 game’s backstory.

Going for 'Distance'

From the Dumpster to the Gallery
To get an idea of the remarkable sprawl of supplies, clutter, and chaos involved in SPACE Gallery's forthcoming exhibit by Swoon and guest collaborators, "Distance Don't Matter," there are two good places to look: the gallery itself, and SPACE Executive Director Nat May's Facebook page.

Ain't life Grand

A debut EP worth more than a one-night stay
Bands come and go. Especially local ones. The money's not great, personalities clash, young and single people tend to move around a lot. Kyle Gervais with Cosades had a band a lot of us in Portland will remember for a long time, but they broke up last year for the reasons that bands break up.

New visions at the BCA and the ICA
Nature is mysterious and mystical in "And the fair Moon rejoices" (at the BCA's Mills Gallery through August 16), as foreign as the wilds of New England probably seemed to its first English settlers. And maybe there are witches about.

Larry's Kidney

Being the true story of how I found myself in China with my black-sheep cousin and his mail-order bride, skirting the law to get him a transplant — and save his life
In this nonfiction account pretty accurately described by the book's subtitle, Daniel Asa Rose accompanies his nebbishy but mobbed-up relative on a mission for a Chinese two-fer: to get the organ he desperately needs and — why not, as long as we're here? — a wife, to boot. In this excerpt, the author first hears about his cousin's dubious — and, according to Chinese law, illegal — plan.
