My name is Christopher Clemente, and most people call me “Chris” or “Clemente” or some combination of the two—Chrimente is not an example of a combination. I’m a Senior at BU studying Film with a minor in Spanish. I finish school in May ’11, after studying abroad in Spain for the fall semester, and Los […]

Dear Las Vegas,

Dear Las Vegas,

I am writing to inform you that I will be visiting you this weekend. I have seen multiple movies with you as a main character—er, location—but no little about you otherwise. I figured I’d just make a short list of what I expect you to be like, based on my limited exposure to you. 1) […]

Rain, Rain…This is NOT Okay

I have changed over the last month. I can’t believe it. I promised myself I would remember who I am and refuse to let my strong moral belief system whither away in the L.A. culture. People who knew me in Boston would probably berate the new me. My friends who grew up with back in […]

The Griffith Observatory

They say there’s no culture in L.A. This city’s detractors will tell you that everyone out here is in it for himself and that if people are nice to you it’s merely a front. Furthermore, they’ll note that the city’s history is built on corruption—anyone seen Chinatown? The people who don’t like L.A. will tell […]

School Again

My last entry I wrote a list of all the things I wanted to do before leaving Boston. I obviously had forgotten my school schedule. Maybe it is because I was abroad last semester and spent the last two months of my semester in an internship, but I really forgot how much homework I get […]

L.A. Radio

I know they say radio is dead these days. They same the same thing about film too—but last time I checked there were two movies released this year that grossed one billion dollars worldwide. I think the only media form that’s truly dead is the traditional newspaper. Everyone reads their news online because you can […]

Crosstown Traffic—And Lots of It

I never liked the way the maniacs on the East Coast drove. Especially New Englanders. Honestly, any time I took the green line on the T to downtown Boston and got off at Boylston Street I said three Hail Marys in the hope that I didn’t get killed trying to cross the street. You think […]

Most Dogs Go To Heaven

I have very little to complain about my upbringing; I was blessed with two wonderful parents and three great siblings. My family (thankfully) isn’t poor and as my mother likes to put it, “We’re actually really rich in love.” Our family immediately family’s wealth increases tenfold when you factor in the rest of my loving […]

Back in Boston

So I am officially back from France and two weeks into my senior year. My semester abroad flew by and I cannot believe I am inches (around 6 months) away from venturing out into real life. Terrifying. Before I (maybe) leave, here is a list of things I still want to do in Boston: Go […]

This is BU… In L.A. Well, I’m finally here in sunny California. I’ve been waiting to come out here since I was in fourth grade. I guess I’m pretty lucky to have known what I’ve wanted to do since I was nine. I know a lot of my friends that are seniors still don’t know […]
