08:37 am - GERTRUDE STEIN'S BOOM BOOM HUCKJAM
It's official. The stupidest name for any event ever, be it musical, sporting, swap meet, or fetish flea market, is Tony Hawk's Boom Boom HuckJam. Oh, sure, it's probably pretty cool, and the thirty-second clip continuously played on the monitors at North Station (conveniently located underneath the FleetCenter TD Banknorth Boom Boom HuckGarden) showed a lot of guys taking their bikes and skateboards over a lotta sweet jumps, but my god, the name alone is ... well, maybe there's some cultural reference that I'm missing. I hear one begins to start missing them as one gets older. But still, I don't remember older folks 15 years ago giving the same kinda guff about, say, Lollapalooza.

Just for gits and shiggles, I put Abbie's name in on the event--Abbie the Cat's Boom Boom HuckJam--and it suddenly sounds way too scatalogical for anybody's good. On the other hand, Warren G. Harding's Boom Boom TeapotDomeJam is pretty freakin hilarious.

I'm proud that I know enough history to have understood that joke, despite belonging to my generation and having gone to public school. Woot. ;)
