False advertising in Davis Square! [Mar. 24th, 2012|11:52 pm]
Davis Square Snarkarama


I was walking in Davis today and saw two people outside the Somerville Theater dressed as Shaun the Sheep But don't be fooled! They are advertising for The Irish Film Festival which contains NO NICK PARK MOVIES!

I don't even think Nick Park is Irish!

I'm outraged! OUTRAGED! That the someone would try to drum up business in this way!

Apparently, reading what I want you to read will make you a dramawanking whore.

But you'll be a well informed one.

SCUL drama [Apr. 5th, 2011|03:11 pm]

I'm conflicted about this post. On the one hand, it has nothing at all to do with Davis Square. On the other, I'm always happy to read of epic lulz in the hipster bike gang community. The only thing that woud make it better would be if turil was somehow involved. I mean, pywaket is there, so why not turil?

Update: lyonesse's original post.
Update 2: DSLJ dramawanking seems to have moved here.
Update 3: For the love of all that is holy make it stop!
Update 4: Phew!

An important public service announcement [Mar. 4th, 2011|11:30 am]
Davis Square Snarkarama

I just saw a scary documentary. It's about clowns. Or squirrels. Or clowns dressed as squirrels. While there aren't any in Davis Square, I feel the need to share the angst. Because first they came for the clowns and nobody did anything..... blah blah blah.

Condescending much? [Jan. 31st, 2011|09:02 pm]

"Gather round children"?

Yes, it's a standard way to begin a tale... but it's a way to being a tale being told to kids.  There are many ways to tell tales, some of which don't insult the adults in the audience.

When you're trying to get people to do something, it works better to treat them with some respect.

biatchy advice [Jan. 28th, 2011|02:56 pm]
Davis Square Snarkarama


Isn't it grand when someone responds to a genuine plea for help from a concerned parent with some self rightous advice about what their kid should be or shouldn't be able to do, especially without any background knowledge about the OP situation?  And no, wheeiminvisible, your advice is not what the OP was looking  for.

don't make suggestions about where my long, boring, and overly detailed review of a company might be more useful, that's so insensitive! besides, i only post to ONE place on the internet, even though actually, i confused this community with another one!


[eta, SOMEONE ruined (some of) my fun by claiming the insensitive comment was a joke! hmph! i only like jokes written specifically for davis_snark!]

It's so hard to resist [Dec. 29th, 2010|10:18 pm]

Regarding http://community.livejournal.com/davis_square/2469386.html?thread=28411402#t28411402
which discusses the Citywide sidewalk shovelling contest, and how he hopes that sidewalks cleared with snowblowers should be out of the running because they use fossil fuel to run the snowblower.

I wonder how his home is heated? Does he use wood? Or (shudder) oil or gas? If it's an electric house, what powers the power plant....a gerbil? Was the power plant built by hand, or was a single backhoe/crane/powerdrill used to screw in one screw of the power plant? If he uses wood, how does he ensure that the trees used for his wood were cut down with an axe (made personally by a blacksmith who cut down the tree themself for the handle, and used a wood fired forge to fashion the axe head?). Then, the tree should be cut into logs by a handsaw (not a chainsaw) then split the way Abe Lincoln split wood, with an axe and not a power splitter? Are you sure that the handsaw/axe used to make his own axe were never touched by machinery?

Until he can prove that he is wearing handspun clothing made on a loom, where the equipment (loom and spinning wheel) were all hand crafted, he should keep quiet. Then he should also prove that the sheep for his clothing was never kept in a heated building nor fed with anything that was ever touched by any machinery, and the linen and cotton for his undies grown by hand, with no mechanized items (such as plow, harvester, irrigation, etc) to grow the crops were utilized.

Prove all that mister, then you can omit snowplowed sidewalks from the danged contest.
