For a sunny week in the end of May, this week's events are spectacularly
morbid. It's jam-packed with many a celebration of gorey fun, from book
events to film screenings to marches and parties celebrating the
week: Judgment Day looms, the weather sucks, and philosophical debate fuels my
obsession with impermanence. Parties and festivals abound, I still can't
help but wonder if the end is nigh. Regardless, you can trust I'll be swilling Harpoon IPA and listening to naked girls read horror stories, desperately praying to God that there actually is no God and the Rapture
Leonard Nimoy -- the man who was, and was not, Spock -- speaks tonight at Boston University, on the occasion of the university receiving Nimoy's archives. Why would BU want Nimoy's archives? Well, as you know if you've ever visited the Mugar Omni Theater, "He grew up three blocks from here."
If you don't make it to his talk, never fear -- we saw an excellent excuse to get Nimoy on the phone and kibbitz with him, and we're more than happy to share.
Hear those thunderclaps overhead? It's the sound of a zillion neurons being blown in Cambridge. Yes, it's raining science in
People's Republic this weekend -- ever since the Cambridge Science Festival
kicked off last Saturday, you can't swing a Schroedinger's cat in
Central Square without hitting something brainy.
Improv Boston just completed their fourth annual Geek Week, a series of comedy nights for those of us who prefer to hear jokes about Game of Thrones and Doctor Who. Improv Boston has a small theatre and a much larger theatre side by side, and each night had back-to-back events in both spaces. I attended the Friday and Saturday night shows.
