I live in Western MA but I used to live right in Back Bay. I figured it's probably a bit unnecessary to create a separate group for the Pioneer Valley.
Me: rock musician from Northampton, MA, home of Smith College and right smack dab in the middle of UMass, Hampshire, Amherst, and Mt. Holyoke.
I've lived here since 97. Before that, New York City, and before that, Boston. I am now a Massachusetts homeowner and consider myself a proud Masshole. I travel tons for work and spend a lot of time all across the States, Japan and Europe. I have been involved directly and indirectly in various liberal causes and benefits for less political goals like combating hunger and disease.
