Theater: Coolidge Corner Previews: The Trip to Italy No No: A Dockumentary Synopsis: Brendan Gleeson plays a priest named Father James (who has a sweet dog named Bruno) who is told by a confessing parishioner that he will kill Gleeson in a week to avenge the horrific sexual abuse that the parishioner suffered as a child at the hands of another priest. The abusive priest died years ago, and the parishioner thinks it will make a louder statement to kill a good priest instead. Father James then spends the rest of the movie dealing with a number of storms in... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? I'm staring out the window wondering how it's already time for the leaves on the Clutter Tree to be turning yellow. I have a friend who is ecstatic that the Dunkin Donuts pumpkin coffee is available. I'll have to confirm it later, but I suspect that the last of this year's Sam Adams Summer Ale is sitting in my refrigerator. It is still August, right? I mean, at least for another 48 hours or so. Okay, enough moping, there's work to be done. Help yourself to a nice (regular flavor) DD, and let's... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Labor Day Weekend to you all. I know some of you are still stuck in the office for a few more hours (even though there's no one for you to call or email now), and others of you are reading this from the road (hopefully in the passenger seat). Wherever you are, we're happy you stopped by. We're mostly just trying to stay out of everyone's way outside as the great 2014 Boston turnover begins, so let's see what's going on in the news today. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, or... Read more →

Classic Clutter: Dreaming of Allston Christmas

Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and that means the moving trucks are out in full force throughout Boston. I love Clutter Headquarters 365 days of the year, but I love it just a little more right now, because BDH, Little Buddha and I don't have to pack a box or try to negotiate the insane traffic that will now choke the city streets from now until Tuesday morning. Ahhh. This weekend also brings one of the most fascinating of Boston holidays, and by that I mean, the one and only Allston Christmas. Today's Classic Clutter was an attempt at... Read more →

Hi everyone, We're back! Sorry for the long delay, my most recent trip to the Northern Estate went longer than originally planned. It was starting to feel rushed, and there was really no reason it should be like that, so I decided to hang out a little longer. However, BDH and Little Buddha are a little annoyed with me for being gone for so long, so I've got some work to do there. The two of them are still professionals though, so the coffee is ready. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter.... Read more →

Hi everyone, Well, if you read yesterday's Clutter, or anything we've posted this year really, you know that we've had increasingly unrealistic expectations for Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor. Really, it was unfair to expect the man to execute a drastic reset of such a well-established character while still maintaining the role's key components. After eight months of suspense, we lost all grasp of sensibility. Who could live up to such hype? It turns out that Peter Capaldi can do that and then some. Here we go. (pic via doctorwhotv.co.uk) The Doctor made his triumphant return last night, and... Read more →

Hi everyone, It's finally here. August 23rd is finally here! I can't believe it's finally here. I've been waiting for this day for almost eight months, and it's finally here. The season premiere of Doctor Who is tonight! This is the most excited I've been all year. No joke, last night felt like Christmas Eve to me. Starting at 8:00 p.m., with the show just 24 hours away, I felt like I was five years old and getting ready for Santa Claus to return. I'm sure that's why I woke up five times last night and was ready to get... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. It's another chilly morning at Clutter Headquarters, and I was starting to think that summer was already over. I know we're heading into the final week or so of August, but I'm not ready for fall yet. However, it sounds like next week is supposed to be warmer, so that's something to look forward to. BDH and Little Buddha tell me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's close out the week with some Clutter. We've reached the point this season... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Is your week going okay? Things are fine at Clutter Headquarters, though I didn't get quite as much sleep as I would have liked last night, so I asked BDH and Little Buddha to make today's coffee a little stronger than usual. They won't tell me exactly how strong it is, but I've been assured I won't have any problems staying awake today. So, help yourself to a slightly turbo-charged medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. It doesn't seem to matter if the Red Sox are on their way to... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. Come on in, make yourself comfortable. How's the week treating you so far? All good? We've had utility trucks outside Clutter Headquarters every day so far, which I'm guessing is tied to our spotty Internet connection, so hopefully we won't have too many delays while we check out the news. In any case, there's plenty to cover, so let's get to work. Help yourself to a nice medium iced DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Red Sox pitcher Allen Webster had another nice performance last night, giving up three runs over six innings, but... Read more →
