Friday night, Boston showed its groovy side, putting on a free roller disco party on City Hall Plaza. Thousands showed up to show their tastiest roller rink moves, many in retro garb, moving to the sounds of Dorchester's DJ Kon. The event was created with the help of Together Boston in order to honor the late great Donna Summer, who passed away last year. Some of Summer's greatest hits were played, and disco culture was revived in Boston for one hot summer night. More

Everybody knows that, if you eat something, you attain it's power.
That's why that dude from "Red Dragon" tried to eat that William Blake painting and why Chinese men have been scarfing tiger dicks as a cure for impotence for thousands of years. It's science, okay?

The 4th of July fireworks took place on the 3rd of July in Boston this year, which was weird enough. The celebration got even more bizarre about ten minutes after the grand finale, however, when a downpour of Biblical proportions engulfed the entire city. It may not have been the most pleasant close to the evening (although it wasn't a bad way to cool down), but a day later, the entire experience seems pretty spectacular. We were lucky (or unlucky) enough to capture the whole thing, along with some double exposure photos of the fireworks.
