Tall Heights

"beautiful harmonies, exquisite musicianship, intricate songwriting. I love it when the bar is set so high" David Wilcox"Tall Heights's delicate melodies and gentle harmonies create a rare public space where the people can slow down, even stop, and suspend the chaos of city life in exchange for some really great music."-Meghna Chakrabarti, NPR"if you still remember how happy your ears were when you first listened to Bon Iver or Arcade Fire and realized you'd stumbled into singer/songwriter oblivion you can trust me when I say this show is worth seeing." Boston MagazineIn the summer of 2010, Tim Harrington and Paul Wright were playing for spare change in Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In three fast years, Tall Heights has put on hundreds of shows, headlining packed listening rooms across the country, touring down to Austin, TX to showcase at South By Southwest Music Festival, and sharing stages with national acts like David Wilcox, Ryan Montbleau, Andrew Belle, Lori McKenna, and many more.For the duo's debut full-length effort, Man of Stone (2013), Tall Heights hit the home studio, sinking deeper into the vast world they've meticulously built for two. The title track and first single, Man of Stone, recalls a time when cavemen documented day-to-day existence on the walls of their stone-sheltered dwellings. "Emblems of cavemen they taught me / the importance of typing in bold," contextualizes the rest of the record and challenges a careful listener to view each song as a vital documentation of what is both banal and extraordinary. The record exists in a fire-lit, shadowy space for their growing army of fans to inhabit. After two powerful EPs, there has been a growing cry for more from these young artists, and Tall Heights delivers with an LP of grand vision and scale.Tall Heights released their first EP, Rafters, in September 2011. While many artists in their genre had of late retreated to the wilderness to record, Tall Heights stayed in the city. These five tracks were recorded over a few sweltering months in a small bedroom of their Boston apartment with an SM58 microphone, an iMac, a guitar, a cello and their voices. And, although there was neither cabin nor lake, Rafters spread across their Thoreauvian folk scene like brushfire, with over 6,000 copies sold to date. With their sophomore release, The Running of the Bulls EP (October, 2012), Tall Heights responded to their fans' growing hunger to download and relive the enchanting, bottomless ambiance of their live performance. Over four days at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA, Tim and Paul shut their eyes, breathed and performed, recording some of their most haunting material. Thematically, the EP's narrative voice, quiet and bold, continually locates the artist as a vigilant figure on a fast-paced and ever changing landscape. Fittingly so, The Running of the Bulls EP, humble and live, further established Tall Heights as an ever stronger force on this robust folk scene amongst the nation's most esteemed new artists.

Steven Pinker discusses The Sense of Style: The Thinking Persons Guide to Writing in the 21st Century

Harvard Book Store welcomes linguist, cognitive scientist, and award-winning author STEVEN PINKER for a discussion of his latest book,The Sense of Style: The Thinking Persons Guide to Writing in the 21st Century.

Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing? Why should any of us care?

InThe Sense of StylePinker answers these questions and more. Rethinking the usage guide for the twenty-first century, Pinker doesnt carp about the decline of language or recycle pet peeves from the rulebooks of a century ago. Instead, he applies insights from the sciences of language and mind to the challenge of crafting clear, coherent, and stylish prose.

In this short, cheerful, and eminently practical book, Pinker shows how writing depends on imagination, empathy, coherence, grammatical knowhow, and an ability to savor and reverse engineer the good prose of others. He replaces dogma about usage with reason and evidence, allowing writers and editors to apply the guidelines judiciously, rather than robotically, being mindful of what they are designed to accomplish.

Filled with examples of great and gruesome prose, Pinker shows us how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right.

Write a Haiku about the Big Autumn Moon for your grandparent
The Japanese holiday Keiro-no-hi, a day to respect grandparents and grandfriends, is held on the third Monday of September.

It is a day to appreciate and celebrate their wisdom, contributions, and life, and children often visit their grandparents on this holiday.

Write a Haiku about the Big Autumn Moon for your grandparents.

Haiku is a form of traditional poetry practiced in Japan for hundreds of years.

What makes a haiku?

There are a total of 17 syllables (five, seven, and five syllables), and at least one word in a haiku should refer to the season.

This sample haiku was written by Museum staff, inspired by the Autumn Moon:
Big September moon
Beautiful, bright, and orange
Hanging low and large
