That's a wrap, folks ... and a pretty AWESOME performance by the Dream Team ... well done, guys and gals ... I just arrived in NJ from Paris today ... and I shall be going into the belly of the beast ... into the Center of the Universe (that's what they call it ... they're a pretty pathetic bunch, aren't they) ... I plan to take it to 'em and I'm going to be relentless ... I'm NOT to let you all down ... they're not going to know what hit them ... I'm going to jam it down their throat ... and I will accept nothing other than an unconditional surrender ...

take care and be well ... and don't be shocked if your tremendous talents were to be needed in the future ... keep up the training ... stay fit as a fiddle ... and don't forget to eat an Apple a day ... a Big one
 
maybe we'll Sell Tix to the next event !

Just to be clear, I never said that Boston had nothing for small children to do.

All I meant was that it's a second-rate provincial deeply racist city masquerading as a culture center.

Another good meal last night at Tiger Mama, somewhat pork inclined thanks to my diet. Crispy ribs followed by a giant shank with multiple condiments in little bowls (peppers, pickles, and so on). Sichuan spiced mushrooms were not too harshly spiced.

The shank was really good, with a slightly sweet dry rub which was kind of non-specifically Asian. At $32 I wasn’t sure if it was a single or shareable portion. Very much the latter, and I luckily had someone to share it with.

I think it was $58 a head before tip, with a bottle of rose.

I was in the same neighborhood next day, so went to Sweetcheeks Q. Same owner, a few doors down the street. Brisket lunch plate was good, although they could have trimmed some of the really thick fat. Collards, excellent.

Did not have a dud meal on this trip.

Hey man, tell us how you REALLY feel ... what's got under your skin ... a little Boston locker room pep talk got you rattled ?

 

Not a Culture Center, eh ? Hmmm

 

So New York's got the lead in ...

 

Academics ? Don't think so, my friend

 

REAL technology breakthroughs * ? Don't think so ... who did you think is going to wind up solving society's global warming challenges ? NYers ? I seriously doubt it . You going to be there in Dec and Feb, right Sneak ?

 

Medicine, medical research, bio-engineering, genetics, understanding the very essence of life itself and the vastness of the universe ? Don't think so 

 

And I dare you to attempt to read The Vital Question and truly understand it at its core, at its depth and all its arguments

 

Let me be crystal clear ... all this IS culture and the breath-taking manipulation of molecules, nanoparticles and bits WILL BE what this century is known for and it will reshape the world beyond your wildest dreams ... this IS today's culture ... this IS our legacy ...

 

You're spending to much time sitting in those halls, Sneak ... and the world is passing you by ... 

 

But if one doesn't understand any of this stuff at a deep level, Chambo fully appreciates how one easily comes to the conclusion that the Boston area is a cultural backwater

 

And yes, they are probably mixing better cocktails in Manhattan, so I take back everything with no bitterness and submit to New York's first rate status in mixing it up and being a melting pot

 

 

* ie not advertising bullshit ... although I can sorta see how chowing down on targeted spam ads may indeed be high culture and fulfill the needs of the Big Apple eaters among us ....

Of course, real live PhDs, even including some from Boston, are working on the advertising bullshit.  An entire team from MIT just went in-house at a marketing company.

I don’t know how useful this is, but someone visiting the Haley Henry wine bar just texted me that it’s very good.

Having trouble remembering the Boston company ? Having trouble googling for a press release that might fit your description ?

 

And what's hilarious in OpenTable ?

I don’t need a press release. 😄But I am not here to feed you tidbits. There’s a steady passage from the academy to leading sales, marketing, BPM etc companies which are building NBA solutions. If you doubt it, research it.

It’s a bar where wine drinking is encouraged—they have a natural, orange, etc focused list. I think they describe themselves as such. But unless they’ve changed direction, they emphasize tinned fish, mostly Portuguese and Spanish.
