I Wrote a New BOOK!!!!

I’ve been working on this secret project for more than a year just after I bought my laptop computer back in December 2015.  The new book is called:

The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian: 

What a Autistic Black Woman Sees

I went to the publisher called BookBaby to create both a paperback book and an ebook.  It includes the blog posts I made when the orignal Uncommon Bostonian blog was connected to The Boston Now dailey newspaper back in 2007 to 2008.  It also has some of the essays I’ve written in recent years and some of my black and white paintings that I made in the last couple of years.  I write about the Beatles, the soap One Live to Live, the Dave Clark Five, the Monkees, and other things.  I created the artwork on the cover.  It’s my Purple Haze painting.

Here’s a picture of both the front and back cover of the paperback.

Remembering Aretha and Elvis

We lost 2 icons on this date:

Aretha Franklin (March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018)

Elvis Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977)

Never forget them! They made great music that still lives on with us!

Happy Birthday, Catwoman!

It’s the 87th in nine lives for Julie Newmar.  Have a purrfectly wonderful day! She is most famous for playing Catwoman on “Batman” back in the 1960s.  She also played Rhoda, a robot, on “My Living Doll” that was a cult favorite TV show just before “Batman.” Let’s not forget all the memorable just appearances on many other TV shows and movies.

New Look for My Blog!

Last night, I spent over an hour putting up a new look for this blog! It’s gorgeous!

I am going to be putting in new posts besides the usual birthdays/obituaries! Here’s a taste of what’s to come!



New Blog Title (Sort Of)!

I changed the title of this blog from OUTSIDE IN to OUTSIDE IN VIEW OF UNCOMMON BOSTONIAN. Yes, I altered the title of this blog to reflect the title of my book, The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian.  (More info about my book is in that blog post I got pinned at the top of this site.)


It’s because I want to make a few changes to my blog which I’ve been doing for 15 years. Of course, 12 of those years have been on WordPress.  It was originally on AOL Journals which no longer exists.  It went away in the fall of 2008, and I had to switch the blog over to this place where it’s been since then.

It’s usually a good idea to change up your blog,  So this is the first change. i am thinking about other changes too.  I will still blog about pop culture, but I will add a little more content in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned!
