I bought beer in that liquor store. Quite a disservice to chop off Jack's Drum Shop in the picture.

Isn't that the old Tower Records in the other picture? Jazzgreg?

I didn't mean to chop off Jack's, it's just that I didn't get it into that shot. I'll go out tomorrow and do it "a service." :-)

And it is the old Tower Records in the other shot. Virgin bought it out some time before I came and now the Virgin Megastore is gone too (soon to be replaced by a friggin Best Buy, d'oh). Those everything-format music stores just can't compete with what's available online nowadays.

Oh, and that liquor store just went out of business two months ago. No more 40 second long trips to get alcohol...ugh. at least it will be forever documented in the movie "Mystic River."

The times they are a changing. You're on the corner of Boylston and Mass Ave, right? There's a liquor store right down Mass Ave. I bought beer there too. Two minutes away.

Yeah, that's the one. Joe Hunt and I singlehandedly cleaned them out of their Jazz section when they announced they were going out of business. Did someone say Virgin was being replaced by a BEST BUY?! Oh man, I am so glad I don't live there anymore. I used to live on Newbury just a few blocks from there. At least they still have an enlarged Newbury Comics, right? I found I bought a lot of stuff there too, they had a pretty good selection that was only getting better, if I recall.

Jacks is an amazing shop, Greg always too care of me with whatever I needed, those guys are stellar. Yeah, that liquor store was in the move 'Mystic River', I remember them filming it. We were looking for Dirty Harry and Greg from Jacks said he had just seen Clint in Dunkin' Donuts (just outside of the pic).

Also in the pic that shows Tower/Virgin, you can barely see it, but there is there is a great little cafe called 'The Other Side Cafe' (yep, for real). Great beer and coffee's, but the place always smelled funny.

Possibly most importantly is the record store- Looney Tunes that is right beside the Dunkin Donuts just outside of the pic (behind it). I spent a serious amount of money in that place...

These pics make me sad, I do miss that place...

Time to feel a bit more sad!

the Dunkin Donuts vacated about a year ago (there's one around the corner), now replaced by "Teriyaki House." And Beantown Cleaners was where the convenience store now is.







Gregg, X22, ever eat here? (hopefully you were drunk if you did....)

What's this world coming to? Is the Other Side closed or closing? It looks different, they must have painted it, maybe it changed hands?

A Drums? The owner of that is a complete idiot and total a**. He (or she) will remain nameless so this post can not be deleted.=) His (or her) store used to be somewhere else, out near B.U. I think.

Of course I've eaten in Little Steve's and yes, I was when I did=). By the way, I don't mind saying now, I used live at 227 Newbury, basically above the best pizza ever, Newbury Pizza.

Thankfully Looney Toones is still there though.

*snif* I hate you, man. No more, spare me!!

Thats my dream place right there. Property, no neighbors and peace and quiet.
I lived in a mountain area once w/the kids, dogs and drums. But it was to far from decent work. I still want to go back though all the time. You pretty lucky.

About the Other Side, it's still run by the same people as far as I know. The whole first floor of the building it's in was painted that funky mango color last year, and since it's winter out the deck is devoid of furniture, so that's probably why you thought it looked different.

And Gregg, I've got some bad news, which I didn't learn about until just now either: Newbury Pizza just closed a month ago. Too bad... I never ate there, and was curious to see if your claim was true. D'oh.

Aw, man! Newbury pizza closed!? Poor Fat Tony and the others. Damn. This keeps getting worse and worse. I wonder why, it was always busy, everyone knew it was amazing.

Oh, and The Other Side was not that mango colour when I was there, so that's different for me.

I don't have any pictures of our main house, but here's our cabin. We stay at a few months out of the year. I LOVE being out in the mountains. The whole place is beautiful.

Here's my mom's house. She and my step-father live on an island north of Seattle and they own the property that the house is on. They designed and built the house themselves (with a work crew and an architect, of course). They are both cooks and artists; the second floor of the main building is one large art studio, and the kitchen and dining room together are almost the size of my whole house.

They are surrounded on three sides by forest and they have a view of the Pueget Sound and the mountains beyond. The trees around them are about 80 feet tall. This little picture doesn't do justice. Click here to see a much bigger version.

Dog Breath, your Mom's place looks like heaven...my wife's brother has a place in Maine built on a lake that has to be one of my favorite places on earth, but I can see living at a place overseeing the Puget Sound in that same vein...

Let's see...set up the drums on the deck, a little ice tea (or the beverage of your choice), perhaps a good book.....
