Sarah Palin Teabags Boston

When I first moved to Boston to attend college a few years back, I was proud to think my home was a liberal utopia of social equality, political correctness, and self righteous snobbery. I was 18, and at the time found all that political homogeny welcoming; now I find it oppressive. I’ve since soured on […]

Far East to Northeast: Anime Boston 2010

Neeeeeeeerrrrrrds! Er, ahem. Sorry for that. Years of public schooling have instilled in me a habit of shouting like that when faced with socially inferior, though intellectually superior, people.

At least that’s what happened last night at the Middle East in Cambridge, where the Atlanta  quartet raged in a full-blown assault of rock and roll madness. With the dance floor packed in the notoriously under-ventilated basement, it took only a few […]
