The Insiders: Learn all about the music of Wales, the country not the marine mammal

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

So we want to play a little word association game. We’ll say the word and you shout out what comes to mind first. Wales. Now since we obviously can’t hear you, we’re going to fill in the blanks. Shamu, ocean, large stuffed animals and Willy – you know the one from that kid’s movie. But in your haste to blurt …

The Insiders: Listen to this music so you don’t have to listen to people tell you what to do

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Sunday is the day for pretending you can’t hear your loved ones when they try to give you chores to do. And a great way to not hear them is to put music in your ears so there’s no room for any other yapping. Well, there’s plenty of music in town today, just looking for ear holes to climb into and chores to …

The Insiders: Looks like winter’s naming rights are still up for grabs; turns out Frostiana is this concert at St. Paul’s School

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Given the Weather Channel’s new penchant for naming winter storms in order to strike greater levels of fear into you (coming up next, a live update on Winter Storm Death Claw!), we first thought Frostiana was just a regal moniker given to the entire winter season this year. But it’s actually a 20th …

The Insiders: Nominate someone fascinating for Concord On Air

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Do you know someone who is, shall we say, fascinating? Do they live in Concord? And will they actually be able to function like a normal human being when put in front of a camera for a live television spot? Well, assuming you answered yes to at least …

The Insiders: We’re pretty much bugging out over this educational evening at St. Paul’s

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

After approximately a bajillion inches of snow in less than a week, which no doubt required countless hours of shoveling and shouting profanely (can one shovel profanely?) at your house as it did at the Insider manse, the last thing you probably want to think about is being …

The Insiders: Do your running on Super Bowl Sunday sans helmet with NHTI

Saturday, January 31, 2015

The big day is finally here, everyone. It’s Super Bowl Sunday, when two weeks of blah blah blahing about football is replaced with actual football. (We did a quick Google search and discovered that this column is the only story in an American newspaper not to discuss deflated …

The Insiders: Celebrate Flashback Friday with Beethoven at the Music School

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Just like those Folgers coffee commercials (remember when those were a thing??!!), we’ve secretly replaced the “B” in #FBF (flashback Friday) with Beethoven this evening. That’s about as flashbacky as you can get! Pianist Gregg Pauley is presenting the fifth of nine concerts in his Beethoven Project tonight …

The Insiders: Dance like nobody’s watching, even though other people at Let’s Dance will be

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Our knowledge of the dancing world is admittedly limited, and not just because we have two left feet (between the two of us, we mean). We hear things like Merengue and Paso Doble and think one of them is a pie and the other is movie villain. Turns …

The Insiders: Come for the science and stay for the, um, science (and the fun!) with The Amazing Nano Brothers

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Nothing gets a party started quite like nanoscale science and technology, amirite? We’re talking molecules and probe microscopy and probably some other kinds of scopys – you know, the kind of stuff that just screams FUN! And you think we’re being sarcastic – we’re actually just describing this …

The Insiders: Go to these events today and we promise not to give you any homework

Saturday, January 24, 2015

We’re going old school today in the most literal sense. Well, maybe not the absolute literal sense – we’re not moving into a tiny schoolhouse and slapping you across the knuckles with a ruler. But we’re throwing it back to the days when you used to review what …

The Insiders: We’ve got three words for you, mac and cheese

Friday, January 23, 2015

There’s a lot you can do with macaroni and cheese. In addition to using just about any kind of cheese imaginable, you can add bacon, ham or pulled pork. You can even throw in some veggies if you’re into that kind of thing. And don’t forget to check …

The Insiders: It’s late January and cold, and that means it’s Black Ice hockey time

Thursday, January 22, 2015

It’s a little hard to admit this, having lived in New Hampshire for approximately 97 percent of our lives, but we can’t skate. Ice, roller, you name it and we can’t do it. So it’s probably a good thing that we didn’t sign up for the fifth annual …

The Insiders: McGowan Fine Art proves ice isn’t the only thing blooming at this time of year

Thursday, January 22, 2015

If you’ve been out tending to your garden lately, you’ve probably noticed this year’s crop of ice has really been growing nicely. You’re also probably really cold. There’s just not a lot in bloom at this time of year – unless you hit up McGowan Fine Art for …

The Insiders: Sing aloud or read aloud, it’s your choice

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

We know it’s a scary thought, but it’s finally time. You’ve been sitting on that poetry you wrote that one time for way too long, and now the world needs to hear it. Your mirror and cat are no longer an acceptable audience, and like us, they would …

The Insiders: They don’t sell the legs diamond at Jared, so you’ll have to go to Red River

Sunday, January 18, 2015

If you have a TV, you’ve probably heard of diamonds. There are, um, a few commercials featuring the jewels out there (GO AWAY JARED). And what’s up with the people who name them? Chocolate diamonds? Sounds like they’d go great with some peanut butter. Anyway, you’ve probably never …
