The Whitey Bulger biopic “Black Mass” ascended Ashmont Hill last week for a three-day encampment that turned two Roslin Street homes – and much of the surrounding neighborhood – into a South Boston side street circa 1970.
Among the stars spotted on the set last Thursday and Friday were Johnny Depp, who portrays the notorious gangster and FBI informant, and Benedict Cumberbatch, the British heartthrob who plays Whitey’s politician brother Bill. Read more

“Phew! That’s quite a workout.”
Jeff Gonyeau was a bit winded. He had just banged out back-to-back psalms by hand on the vintage bell chimes in a windswept perch high up in the bell tower of All Saints Church.
The seven-minute performance was an act of physical — as well as musical— prowess. It’s typically a two-person job working the levers of the chimes— a contraption that’s about as big as a queen-size bed-stand. Each of the 11 wooden levers is attached to a cable connected to one of the massive bronze bells that hang in an upstairs chamber, hidden from our view. Read more
Jeff Gonyeau, a neighbor and parishioner at All Saints Church, played the bell chimes in the tower of All Saints Church in Peabody Square this afternoon. Gonyeau sounded the bells at 2:50 p.m. following a moment of silence that was observed across the city, region and nation in observance of the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Gonyeau played two hymns on the church's 11 bells using a chime in a wooden chamber nestled just one level beneath the bells. He played two hymns: "St. Columba", which is derived from the 25th Psalm ("The Lord is My Shepherd"); and "Land of Rest", a hymn that is often sung at memorial services. Both were selected by Gonyeau with the Richard family in mind.
Gonyeau is the same neighbor who stopped the clock in Peabody Square last year in the hours following the attack that killed young Martin and left his family wounded, including his little sister Jane. The clock became a focal point of mourning in the close knit Ashmont-Adams community where the Richard family live. Read more
