Welcome to Boston, college kids. Despite all of the things we say every summer behind your backs about how great the city is when you're not here, we're actuallyreally happy to have you. Mostly because all of the schools you attend give us a reason to feign civic pride when we're arguing with friends from New York.

As you get further acclimated to your new city, a lot of questions are probably going to come up. Like, "Why is the Phoenixrunning this college guide halfway through the school year?" And, "Just how slowly should I walk in front of traffic on Comm Ave on my way to class?" Fortunately, we're here to help you figure out the city with this comprehensive A-to-Z guide to everything that I could think of to make jokes about.

The usual Phoenix shit , Dumping on the Irish, whites in general and Southie in particular, while tiptoeing around the real racist, violent sections of the city out of fear, guilt, pity and appeasement.

    If you're a regular reader of the Phoenix's music section, you'll have noticed a decided uptick in the space devoted to electronic music here lately: electro, laptop lo-fi, chillwave, superstar DJs, and whatever other bullshit genre we're about to hype next week. There's a reason for that: all the writers here (myself especially) have horrible taste.
