BU scenes in the movie 21. Funny.

March 29, 2008

I just saw the movie 21 at the Fenway theater. It’s pretty good. But the coolest part, I must say, were all the crazy Boston scenes throughout the film. Especially if you’re a Boston University student. No one else in the world will realize how BU is an impostor MIT throughout the entire movie. Funny stuff.

Scenes from BU:

1) Opening scene is the lovely Charles. You can see Warren Towers, etc.
2) The main character, Ben, has his math class in Photonics.
3) He studies in the Mugar basement.
4) The 21 team practices in a classroom on the first floor of CAS near the offices.
5) He plays basketball in the Fitrec’s big gymnasium below the indoor track.
6) They hang out in the CAS foyer in front of Tsai auditorium.
7) He lives in Towers in a single. Not fair.
8) He attends an awards ceremony in the fancy SMG auditorium.

9) Fancy alumni event is at BU Castle

Any that I missed? I didn’t go to MIT, so I didn’t recognize those scenes as well. The only segments filmed there were the outside of buildings anyhow. However, he does ride his bike over the Mass. Ave. Bridge and he takes the red line a lot.

Pretty cool. I suggest you check it out.


Southie Parade!

Status Quo is still in the game.

I’m so pumped. My boys are STILL on the show. Suspicions are going around that it’s LilMama’s ties to Boston that have kept SQ from getting kicked off. Apparently her choreographer is from Boston? Who knows.

Their dance last Thursday was super cute.

Blatant Dunkin product placement, anyone? Hometown hero # 2?

Mr. Bobby McFerrin was at the Berklee Performance Center tonight.

Bobby gave a talk on musical improvisation, held a Q&A and gave the audience a few tips to improve their own skills. He even sang a few songs too, including his own rendition of “Blackbird” by the Beatles.

What I want to know is how he managed to write the catchiest song of all time. Anyone have an answer to that?

Anyhow, there you go. Another cool event that I missed. And apparently Governer Deval Patrick was there too. Interesting.
