Merry Christm…errr, Season’s Greetings, everyone! It’s time to party with the Boston Skeptics: this year, we will be featuring a musical performance from the hilarious Dan Hart, who will entertain us with some wonderfully blasphemous Christmas songs! You know it has to be good when there is a song called “Santa God”… Check him out at danhart.net.

Seriously dudes, Santa God.

After Dan’s performance, we will be bringing back our Yankee Swap, which was a great success last year. If you wish to participate, bring a wrapped present of a geeky, scientific, blasphemous, or otherwise awesome nature (nothing pricey–under $10 is a good guideline). Pressies…I can’t wait!

We will be at our usual location and time: 7 pm at Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square, on Monday, December 20th.

Don’t forget to rsvp on facebook!

See you all there! Happy Festivus, everyone.

Video: Marian Call – “Dark Dark Eyes”

Posted on : 06-11-2010 | By : maggie | In : Skeptics in the Pub, video


The Nov. 1st show with Marian Call was absolutely incredible. We had a comfortably full house, a great audience and I think we can safely say that Marian and guitarist Scott Barkan had a great time themselves.

For those of you who couldn’t make it (and those who can’t wait to see it again) here’s sneak-peek at what’s to come. Maggie is editing together the whole show (minus the really new songs, which she’ll post later once Marian gives the OK) but this one’s going to be special (and was a two-camera shoot) so it will take a little longer. So to tide you over, here’s a video of “Dark Dark Eyes”. Enjoy! And thank you SO much, Marian. You are awesome.

Reminder: Book Club Tomorrow!

"Oh, you're dealing with someone far worse than the FBI. You've just crossed...mall security."

Come and join the Boston Skeptics’ Book Club tomorrow, November 6th, at 3pm for a rousing discussion about zombies and World War Z by Max Brooks.

Since the weather is a bit cooler, we’ll be meeting inside the Northwest Building at Harvard University.

Here are some Google Maps directions to a spot in front of the building from the Harvard Square T Station.

Here is a photo of the building (it’s a big file, sorry anyone who has slow internet). The entrance is on the right and we’re meeting in a spot that is near the windows on the left side of the picture.

Please don’t come too late, because the door is not open to the public so we have to let people in ourselves. If you come late, you can try going to the windows on the left side of the picture above, and you should be able to see our group.

If you haven’t read the book, but you’re a fan of zombiefic, come on over! We’ll be discussing all sorts of zombie (and skeptic) related things tomorrow. Also, we will be continuing the snack-bringing tradition, so bring some goodies to share with the rest of the class (and it doesn’t have to be zombie related–you just need to bring the brains in your heads, not cooked or otherwise prepared).
