The Friends of Eddie Coyle

"It's a grubby, violent, dangerous world. But it's the only world they know. And they're the only friends Eddie has."

1973's The Friends of Eddie Coyle starring Robert Mitchum and a young Peter Boyle is the lost gem of Boston movies. Based on Rockland native and Boston-based federal prosecutor George V. Higgins's novel, this contemporary of Scorsese's Mean Streets features solid performances and a calculated plot involving Irish criminals and betrayal, making Eddie Coyle a fine precursor to 2006's Best Picture, The Departed.

Good article on the Irish in Boston

Check this article out about the decline of Irish immigration and its effect on the community in Boston. Apparently, Irish numbers have dwindled in Boston, especially since 911.

It makes me kinda sad because I've always thought that the Irish influence in Boston was one of its most important cultural attractions.

Brighton Town Hall Cornerstone Time Capsule-1841

It is believed that a time capsule was placed in the cornerstone, or somewhere in the building site, of the forner Brighton Town Hall in 1841.

The Brighton Town hall occupied the space that currently houses the Knights of Columbus Hall on Washington Street in Brighton Center. The original building was destroyed by a fire in the 1970's, but the new structure was built upon the existing foundation.

Over time it is believed thatthe time capsule was lost, and that it may be buried in the building structure even today!

Wagging the dogs

Well, this was a week I'll long remember. I was in a crappy mood Monday night. I had a ton of work due on Tuesday. I had to give mid-term progress reports on all my students. I was behind on grading tests, which needed to be done if I was to give an honest assessment on the reports. But I also needed to get an expense check and a month worth of pay into the bank before the mortgage came due.

Something different for St. Patty's this year?

We’re throwing a party at the Hyatt Regency Boston. The people there will be in their late twenties, through their thirties. We usually get a pretty cool crowd of people and I think having this kind of party will give everybody an alternative to the bedlam that takes over the bars around the city. Check out more here. We’ll have a dinner option, plus all the drinks, but I think its going to be a more relaxed scene. What do you think?

Hawk! Who goes there?

Of all the branches in all the trees in all of Dorchester, this hawk (red tail?) landed on the branch next to my window, prey in tow, for a lunch break.

IMAGE(http://www.projectexist.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/01/picture-132.jpg)

It was a fascinating sight for which I am thankful to have witnessed. But if any Dorchester-area hawks read Universal Hub, a small request: I am happy to host you for lunch, just please clear your place. Staring at a red clump of leftover bird ruins my view (I’ll take graffiti any day!)
