Visa Olympics: Go World—Derek Redmond from Kirsten Stewart on Vimeo. I’m that guy who gets caught up in the Olympic pause-for-peace hype. Just when I get my people-of-the-world-unite-through-sports groove, I also get caught up on the cash-money hustle of this world sport game – fashion faux pas, copyright police, anemic storytelling, and incivility. And, […]
We’re going for the obvious in Boston. Today’s best picture of “hot” wins a cool prize! The Drill got to follow us on Twitter or Instagram or like us on foursquare show us your picture however you like, but we’ll be checking Instagram, Twitter, or foursquare after you click off a shot – with one […]
The committee decided that there was no winner in the last challenge. What’s wrong, was it too hard? Let’s try it another way. This week, instead of just writing it down, show us your jam. You know what we mean! The song that comes on and makes you say, “That’s my jam!” The jam that […]
My brief 236th anniversary reflection incorporates – what else – music. I caught a great set of questions from Dorian Lynskey in her book – on our summer reading list – 33 Revolutions Per Minute: A History of Protest Songs, from Billie Holiday to Green Day (caught this on page 5 of my e-book): Does […]

Today’s best picture of “cool” wins a cool prize! The Drill got to follow us on Twitter or Instagram or like us on foursquare show us your picture however you like, but we’ll be checking Instagram, Twitter, or foursquare after you click off a shot – with one of those apps — add #bucool […]
I was taken by this riff that I checked out last week (check with your parents first – contains salty language and grown up material): We’re just not in love anymore. We’re done and finally letting the donkey and the elephant know that they don’t love, inspire, work for, or motivate us. We’re down for […]
We all get jazzed seeing our students successfully searching for their dreams and their passions. The Boston University community and the student life experience inspire us. During your time at the University, I hope you looked around and caught the vibe. Listened to music. Read as much as you could. I hope you got […]
Watch this video on YouTube With a somber heart. I have learned to take time each day to celebrate our families, our communities, and the young people who give us their potential and opportunity to be our best selves. I rarely take the time to celebrate the people who got me to this place — the […]
