David Cox’ Very Organized Workspace At Main Street Art and Antiques

Behind David Cox’ desk on the wall hangs a picture of Nick’s pool Hall which was located in the space occupied by Main Street Art and Antiques over 20 years ago.

I would say that I’ve heard at least four different people at different times ask how much that picture would cost to purchase but it is not for sale.

It sure is a beautiful picture.


Steam Tug Goteborg Hamn Print at Main Street Art and Antiques

I was going to buy this print for my buddy Monkeyfist at CascoBayBoaters and now gCaptain but it came from the office of David Cox’ dad and is not for sale.  Cool print though.


GHS Theatre Program Stages Local Performance of Statewide Competition Piece

From Good Egg Beth Morris-

GHS Theatre Program Stages Local Performance of Statewide Competition Piece
Students share the stage with their peers from North Shore Tech.
Gloucester — February 10, 2010 – The GHS Theatre Program will perform The Scheme of the Driftless Shifter, on Thursday, February 25th at 7:00 pm in the GHS auditorium.  The play, a 40-minute one-act comedy, is Gloucester’s entry in the Massachusetts High School Drama Guild Festival competition. Students from North Shore Technical High School will also perform their competition piece, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, an original adaptation by Robert Parsons.
The Massachusetts High School Drama Festival annually draws an average of 120 schools from around the state.  Through participation in the Festival, students with interests in acting, directing, and technical theatre gain valuable performance and production experience.  Schools compete at preliminary, semi-final and state levels with two schools chosen at the state level to represent Massachusetts in the New England Drama Festival.  At each level, students are recognized for excellence.  A terrific learning experience, the Festival is also great fun.
For a number of years Gloucester High School and North Shore Technical High School have performed in the same preliminary round of the competition. This year, however, they will not. While both will perform on Saturday, February 27th, GHS will take the stage at 9:00 a.m. at Ipswich High School, NSTHS at 2:00 p.m. in Newburyport.  
There are many friendships between the two programs.  GHS students didn’t want to give up the tradition of sharing the “Fest” experience with NSTHS and therefore invited their peers to join in the local performance.  Having no home stage facility on which to perform, NSTHS is particularly pleased to have this opportunity.
28 GHS students and 33 NSTHS students (several from Cape Ann) will take part in this special performance. Tickets for February 25th are $5.00 and may be purchased at the door.  For more information please contact

North Shore Magazine Hosting the Incoherent Ramblings of Yours Truly

It’s true, editor Jack Morris has invited me to post on theNorth Shore Magazine website so check out my first post over there-

I hope to bring some fresh flavor to North Shore Magazine, not that it needs it.  If you’ve seen an issue you know it’s high quality through and through. 

 Hopefully I don’t ruin the brand with my sometimes off color humor, atrocious spelling and hope for the best punctuation.  Hey it’s a 50/50 shot if I put the apostrophe before or after the s isn’t it?
