RAVENSWOOD IN THE FALL- Get it while you can!

Yes, it’s 76 degrees and sunny on this fine fall day in November! Hannah, Ruby, and myself took to the trails to catch up on some last minute fall colors. Can you find Ruby?



For Everyone That’s Bitching About The Heat- A Little February 15th, 2015 Throwback Video For Ya-

What would you rather be out there shoveling all frickin day? Removing the snow from the bottom of your driveway that you just shoveled out because the overworked plow guy just made another swipe and pushed it all right back in front of the spot you just shoveled?

Don’t make Homie come and kick ya in the nuts. Nobody wants to see that now do they?

Gloucester Snow Removal Pics From Shelly Nugent

Hi Joey,
    Was at Good Harbor Beach this morning watching truck after truck coming in to dump snow. They were running out of room and had to call in a front end loader and an excavator.  Don’t know how he got on top of that pile but he did. Running the excavator is Charlie Nugent, a local lobsterman.  Bill Nugent was in the front end loader, pushing the snow to Charlie so he good push it to the back of the pile. It was interesting to watch all that was going on. Feel free to share these pics.

DRONE SURFING: Some locals headed out on Feb 22nd to catch a few sets #gloucesterma #DJIPHANTOM2

Good Harbor Beach Surfers

I headed out to capture some footage during the epic 40 degree heat wave on Sunday. I came across some guys who where also a little restless to get back to the great outdoors. I never met them, so I don’t have their names. I shot some pretty cool video, but I thought I would share some snap shots first. Now you have to have a very solid set of stones to paddle out in these waters this time of year. New England has some pretty decent waves in the off season, so it’s not really ever “off-season” for the surfers. If you know these kats, tell them to hit me up!


Let’s show our friends from warm climates how we New Englanders Party in Winter

Booker T’s new 2 CD/DVD set

Tomorrow (Sat 2/21) we welcome Memphis Soul legend and Stax recording artist, Booker T. Jones and his hot young band to the Larcom Theatre for his only New England stop on this U.S. tour.  Even though they’ve toured the world, I’ll bet they haven’t seen this much snow on the ground very often — and probably never in the Boston area.

We’re also offering a very limited number of VIP packages that include an intimate meet & greet with Booker T. before the show (just a few people) along with some wicked good gifts, including:

Get the VIP package (more details here) and be sure to tell Booker T. how much you appreciate his trek up here during our worst winter in a very long time and prove to him that nothing can keep us from enjoying great music!  Opening the show are local favorites Sarah Seminski and Eric Reardon.

Check out this video of Booker T. with Gary Clark, Jr (one of the guests on his new CD):

And here’s Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November (a song Booker T. recorded with Otis Redding when they were at Stax Records together).  Get tickets here.

Don’t Plow Me In!
