nbaoffseason:

It’s been a crazy week to be living in the Boston area and due to the recent events, the Double Scribble In The Paint art show has been rescheduled to this Friday, April 26th.

I was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of it this weekend, as well as meeting up with the organizers: Nick of Double Scribble, Ananth and Crystal, and the folks at Voltage Coffee.

Show your love for art and basketball, as well as the city of Boston, and reserve your tickets here: http://www.inthepaintbos.eventbrite.com/

From the event page:

Everything that was planned for last Friday will happen again.

Door donation and raffle proceeds to Shooting Touch, and both Grillos and Downeast Cider will be there with pickles and hard cider galore.

So let’s experience great art (including Aaron Dana’s fantastic mural), eat/drink, and come together In the Paint.

*Note: tickets have sold out but register anyways to get on the list. If not, the artwork will still be up until May 18th. 

**Sidenote: If you want to support another fine Cambridge establishment, all hoops fans are invited to “NBA Nerd Night” every Wednesdays at Parlor Sports in Inman Square for all things basketball nerdery.

Lorem Ipsum Books is an independent bookstore located in Inman Square in Cambridge, MA. They are also home to the Papercut Zine Library: an actual library of over 14,000 zines that you can read and borrow.

Currently they are in danger of closing permanently unless they receive $14,000 in the next 11 hours (!!).

If you live in the Boston area or if you just like books and want to help out, and especially if your name is Rajon Rondo or Ben Affleck and have $14k in your pocket as we speak, please visit their fundraiser page and donate some money to help save this bookstore.

DONATE $$$ Y’ALL. SAVE THESE BOOKS.

We passed by this sign one night after coming back from a bar in Cambridge and followed the directions which led us to some apartment/office type building nearby. We entered the building and it was totally dark except a flight of stairs and a door to my left. I figure the theatre was probably upstairs so I go up and take a look but it’s even darker so we decided to just go back down and leave. As soon as we were heading out, the other door opens and this Tor Johnson lookin dude comes out and asks us if we’re here to see the movies. Behind him was his living room and about 3 or 4 rows of fold-up chairs with no one sitting on them, with the flickering of whatever movie that was screening that night. Despite the creepy vibes, he was a nice enough guy though. I actually felt bad since nobody showed up to his movie night. Although, not bad enough since we just ended up saying bye and left with some of his flyers. But for all you cinephiles living between the Harvard/MIT area, the Back Alley Cinema is most likely the gulliest way for you to watch some cult films.

Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square. So far Cambridge is the nicest city I’ve ever visited but this little theatre just put it over the top.
