Happy Presidents’ Day!

No wonder Mary Todd Lincoln went off her rocker. I give you the Electric Six and their song ‘Gay Bar’ and I will surely burn in hell. (NSFW) [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTN6Du3MCgI]

shrub of the week

Chinese witch hazel Seen here on the Brown campus and dotted elsewhere around the city. It is not a type of forsythia which is still a few weeks off. It blooms every year in sync with the start of spring training. This is not the

when it’s time to party…

I have never really been told what my responsibilities are supposed to be around here, but I know I’m the go-to gal for all things ‘Andrew W.K.’ and here’s the latest. It seems the talented boys over at Lucid T.V. have executed a couple of

philistines!

Not wishing to inflame the passions or offend the sensibilities of its delicate viewers, the censors at Channel 10 News have taken a page from the John Ashcroft playbook. In a story on the recent rash of copper thefts, they reference the theft of an

yes, Texas is awful, but

It has been hard for me lately to keep an open mind about the Lone Star State, what with the current administration in Washington, and Halliburton and Enron, and the evil Belo corporation cutting and gutting our once-fine newspaper, the Providence Journal. And as if

yes, war is awful, but

If you’ve got a box of men under your bed, or you like history, or you like anything, you should stop in and see the toy soldiers at the John Hay Library, Brown University. Formally the Anne S. K. Brown Military Collection, it’s all about

Yoo-Know-Hoo!

All the guys here at The Dose are so cute I can’t pick a favorite, so Happy Valentine’s Day to you all. Just one thing… I don’t know who drinks the Yoo-Hoo, but there has been a spill in the refrigerator and it’s beginning to

There are no bad dogs…

… just bad owners. That got repeated so often during last night’s Westminster Dog Show I almost started believing it. But then I remembered Manny (may he rest in peace). At any rate, it is easy to start falling in love with all these breeds,

the other tapes and tapes

Only a couple of days left to visit the Tape Art Artaquarium at the 5 Traverse Gallery. Pictured here is one wall that artist Michael Townsend (you remember the apartment in the mall guy) and the rest of the crew are working on. It is

on tv tonight

‘The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman’ Tuesdays 8 – 8:30/ on the IFC/in reruns for now This show stars, and is written by, the most excellent Laura Kightlinger, co-starring the scrumptious Nicholle Tom. I love these gals and I love this show. Often compared to

Horseshoe Crab Awareness

The Providence Journal reports that filmmaker Allison Argo* will be screening her latest film, Crash — a Tale of Two Species, tomorrow night at Wheeler School. Her Emmy-winning documentaries, which have been airing on the PBS series Nature for many years (this one debuted last

Will They Remember Soy Bomb?

Tonight is the 50th anniversary of the Grammy Awards. On the schedule is a special tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band which I’m sure will be ghastly. All hope of a spontaneous unscripted moment was abandoned years ago… but wait… there’s hope. CBS

Music Fridays @ RISD Museum

I am normally pretty suspicious of music collectives (it’s usually code for ‘overly-earnest hippies with weird instruments’). But tonight is Music Friday at the RISD Museum and the music is being provided by the Cozy Collective and these guys are great! Comprising Tim O’Keefe, Tony

snake handlers on a plane

Evangelical nutbags still have a strangle-hold on the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. The New York Times reports that three speakers invited to participate in a recent conference on terrorism may not be former Muslim terrorists as they claim, but rather proselytizing Christians. Members

Go see U2 3D, you know you want to.

For some people two dimensions are enough, but some of us need all three to feel truly alive! The beauty of the new ‘U2 3D‘ at the IMAX Theater (I mean the Feinstein-Verrazano Ni-Ro-Pe IMAX Theater or whatever the hell it is) is that you
