About


The author Liam Sullivan lives in Jamaica Plain, MA with his lovely wife, two children, and a cat. He works as a processing archivist at an academic library in Boston.

Panorama of the Mountains is about ideas and reflections.  The name comes from the fact that I couldn’t find just one topic to blog about paired with a silly nickname I earned in college.

A typical week at Panorama of the Mountains:

  • On Sunday, I post reviews/summaries of the latest books I’ve been reading.  Book reviews are pretty much the bread & butter of this website because I like to read often.  I’ve also ranked my Favorite Books of All Time.  
  • Mondays are home to my Music Discovery posts in which I listen to a lot of music by a band or artist I’ve overlooked or in some way was not aware of the full breadth of their work.
  • Tuesdays are my opinion/editorial days in which I’ll share my views on current events.  My interests are widely ranging so I may write about politics, religion, public transportation, sports, music, parenting, urban planning, and local issues from the greatest city in the world – Boston!
  • On Wednesday, I write my thoughts about bicycling on my Boston Bike Commuter blog and crosspost them here.
  • Thursdays are for reviews of movies, television, and other entertainment
  • Kick back on Fridays with a beer and read my beer reviews.
  • Finally, on Saturday I post a new music discovery in Song of the Week.

I don’t write every day, but try to write as often as time and my muddled brain permit.  With less frequency I also post photographs, write travelogues, and hopefully will begin to add some original fiction.

  3. Wow…how does a Mets fan end up living in Somerville?

  4. I have several sarcastic responses ready for this question:

    1. I needed to find a safe place to live far away from Yankees fans.
    2. I am allergic to the DH and had to find the nearest National League team to root for.
    3. I snuck in over the borders of Red Sox Nation and am living in Somerville as an undocumented immigrant.

    Well, all of those have an element of the truth (especially, the mutual hatred of the Yankees and the nearest NL team to Boston), but the truth is that I grew up in Connecticut and became a Mets fan as a child and one just cannot give up fandom. The Red Sox are my favorite AL team and I always wish them well except when they play the Mets.

    Thanks for commenting. You have a very attractive blog with all those photos.

    Thanks for being the first (sadly, only) blogger on the planet to notice “Margin notes” at US Catholic. I appreciate the assist, esp. coming from a Mets fan. Good luck with your Jesus year! No pressure!

    Hello, My name is Johnny Coe. i was the leader of the band called Echolalia.
    In researching online today, i found our band listed in your top 100 albums of all time!
    THANK YOU it was a fun record to make. It started out as a few different demo’s for
    various venues showcasing all different styles we covered. In case you didn’t recognise it,
    there was a cover of a song originally recorded by Boston band DOGMATICS “King Size Cigarette”
    We had a fantastic run for a few years and sadly disbanded 1999. There were a couple of reunion shows which were well received, but, it always felt like unfinished business to me.
    We did multi track recordings of a couple of live shows, but, the tapes were destroyed
    after we split up. We had a reunion tour booked in 2004 and were going to be featured on
    a film soundtrack. After an unexpected death in my family, it had to be postponed.

    I’ve been living on and off in Boston, since June 2000 and co-host a traditional music session
    in kendall Square @ Tommy Doyle’s Pub on Tuesday Nights 8:30pm
    as well as Playing in a band called “The Old Brigade” in and around Boston, Ma.
    Would Enjoy meeting you sometime. love to hear the story of how you found our record.
    it is pretty obscure and hard to find…..
    I’m off to your neighborhood now to peruse Boomerang’s thrift shop.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Johnny Coe
