Dose Party Missed Connection (m4m)

You:  Walked in with the liberal boys at the beginning, asked someone if Matthew Lawrence was there. Me:  In the corner, wearing a raincoat, scowling because a) I was rapidly trying to make a playlist that didn’t involve that godawful Beyonce album or the (wonderful

Thanks to Chris and Drinking Liberally; Thanks to Matthew and his iPod; Thanks to the designated drivers — especially those who were designated so without foreknowledge; Thanks to Local 121 for un-dingy-fying the basement in our honor; And thanks to all of you, for weathering

Daily Dose Commenters: Get Your Gravatars On

You may have noticed this little guy popping up next to your comments, that’s because we’ve starting using Gravatars.  Gravatar is a pretty cool service from Automattic, the makers of the software that runs this blog, that lets you associate a picture of yourself (or

The Daily Dose endorses

Dave Segal for Rhode Island House District 2.  Yes, he’s unopposed, but he really likes it when you pull his lever.  It makes him feel loved.

Put On Your Brakelights, Here…In The City of Wonder!

If you, like me, are totally not feeling the Halloween spirit this year, here’s some stuff that might get you in the mood: 1. Christopher Walken reading “The Raven.” I’ll let you argue amongst yourselves about whether or not Poe’s writing is scarier than Rihanna’s

5th annual Halloween Parade!!!

There’s a group of a dozen or so of us who’ve insistently held a Halloween Parade each of the last four years. The path varies a bit: Sometimes we find ourselves being escorted away from the State House, sometimes we provide entertainment for janitors fasting

How’s this for Nightmare Fuel

(I’m regretting this picture already… it’s very disturbing.) However…Dose friend, Kim Ahern, is my new favorite Providence College alum — Janeane Garofolo moves down one. I don’t know any others.  Kim is one of the ’30 on 30‘ subjects in this week’s Phoenix, commenting on

Some context

That last post is particularly relevant in the context of this news: Rhode Island’s unemployment rate now ranks highest in the country, according to data released today by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Rhode Island’s jobless rate in September climbed to 8.8 percent, nudging

Comparative advantage

In these trying times, it’s only sensible that we fall back on our established strengths.  Finally, Rhode Island and Nevada are recognized as peers.  SF might decriminalize prostitution: Even in tolerant San Francisco—where the sadomasochism fair draws thousands of tourists and a pornographic video company

The Right Kind of Policing

One bold [read: drunk] San Francisco lady attempts a citizen’s arrest of Karl Rove. America, the beautiful. Oh, also, I plan to start writing for the PDD again…if not now, then after the election. In the meantime, enjoy.

DL: Baractoberfest style

Weds, 8-10, at the Wild Colonial: You’ve been rallying. You’ve been canvassing. You’ve been phone banking. You’ve been hitting the pavement up and down the main streets and back roads of New Hampshire. You’ve been talking with your friends and your family, your neighbors and
