Ian Thal 
Somerville, MA, USA
1. Outside the Boylston Street not-an-entrance-or-a-birthday-present to the Huntington Convention Center T-Stop. In the entire time I have lived in Boston, though the station has changed its name, this thing that looks like an entrance has remained a not-an-entrance-or-a-birthday-present.
2. A Shepard Fairey in Harvard Square to which some one has added some commentary by way of a stencil. (Detail.) Not sure I completely agree, but it is certainly a thesis worth discussing.
3. This is when Sophocles was working for Hallmark. After this point I could not stomach another sidewalk aphorism about love and reverted to my normally cynical self.
