site will function more or less like a blog. Here's wishing campers, staff, parents and everyone associated with the camp the very best of luck this year! You can also find out more about AileyCamp Boston and all of the programs in our Arts, Education and Community Program here.
ArtsEmerson announced its inaugural season today, including two partner events with your friendly neighborhood Celebrity Series (Basil Twist's Petrushka and Compagnia TPO's Farfalle). Check out their web site here and Executive Director Robert J. Orchard's blog here. Welcome to the neighborhood!

This blog has just hit 200,000 page views since its creation in mid-2005.
For me, it seems like both a colossal figure and, well, not very much for 4 and a half years of posting.

And then when you consider how many of this blog's visitors were just trolling for free images ... um, hey, has anybody been to any good concerts lately?
