Picture Story Boston - Patrick
"This is Boston. This is Boston. You notice what they do to you here? It's called tailgating. But it's on the sidewalks. I get this once a week. It's like an inch. And he's like this close to me. You understand what I'm saying? Look at this, like this (gestures with his hand). His head was down and he's barreling through like a bull. Like a bull. Listen what I'm saying is don't get me wrong don't get me wrong cause a lot of people get me wrong. They think in their world that they're protected because they're in Massachusetts and Cambridge. But you know what's cool, I love a real Boston accent. When I first got here people made fun of me all the time. Now I lost my Philly accent."

"My brother says no, he says you have to pay." I have to pay? "No he is worried we have to pay for the picture." Oh you thought you would have to pay me? "Yes yes my brother is worried he has to pay." No, there's no charge. "Oh okay. He says okay then. We came to go to H Mart and do some shopping but we forgot to bring our money so we just had noodles." Oh, no money? Next time you pay me then. (Laughing) "Next time we sit and have a coffee."
Picture Story Boston - Brendan
"I moved to Boston in 1987, moved here from Connecticut, I've lived in Somerville, Boston, Cambridge. Used to rap, all over. Do shows. Check out Click Animosity, VHS Crew. I decided to just press a bunch of CDs worth of old material this year. Underground Hip Hop went under this year tho, I used to sell stuff there. The business is changin'. I still have many CDs of unreleased material. Yeah we're getting older now (takes off his hood to show me a few gray hairs) now I just follow the energy. If something moves me, seems good, then I might go that way. I was super focused from 2006 to 2012, put out like 10 CDs. Yeah things are changing. Ownership is changing in here today (Cheapo Records) actually. Hopefully I'll keep my job. I work the register, record sales. I still record, it's easier now with home studios and software. But it's definitely changing."

"I was 43 years here, in Cambridge. Sold and I moved to New Hampshire. But all my work is here. I'm a plumber. That's my truck over there, B&B or Bernie the Plumber. Anything, frozen pipes, bathrooms. I'm on call so just waiting on work. Gotta be ready to go."

"I'm an electrician, I'm working in here. It's gonna be a Target. Two floors, you know front to back. Should be open in March. I'm hoping I'll be working it all the way through. It's a lot of work, a lot of wiring. Alright I gotta get back to work."

"Yeah my father was one of six brothers and two of them died in the war, one on one side one on the other. They pull the other four brothers out, pull 'em right out, one off the JFKennedy. My father, pulled him out. I'm a junior, well a senior now. My father, he's always here (points to his heart). The McCluskey building up on Broadway. That's my family. I grew up on St. Mary's Park, Broadway and Prospect. Area 4, that's what the cops call it...you're not a cop are you? (laughs). I'm 52 years here, you ever need to know anything about living on the streets you can ask me. I don't need to be out here tonight but I'm gonna be anyway. You can usually find me over by the 7/11."

Opening at the Carole Calo Gallery!
Here's a blurb and the dates: "This exhibition explores the ideas of the artificial landscape, the impact of human construction on the environment, as well as the organic materials that make up the land itself. The creation of impossible realities and the illusion of work that poses as landscape bring us to question not only how we perceive our surroundings, but also how we interpret the genre’s technical and stylistic expansion."
Opening Reception and Artist Panel: November 14, 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Date: November 3 – December 12
Time: Mon.- Fri., 9 a.m.- 8 p.m.
Location: Kruse Center and the Carole Calo Gallery and Lobby, Cushing-Martin building, Stonehill College, 320 Washington Street, Easton, MA 02357
