new tag needed [Dec. 29th, 2010|01:28 am]

davis_square needs a new tag: TL;DG

for "Oh, hey, can anyone tell me if there's a movie theater somewhere dear davis?" "I've heard there's someplace to buy bar-b-que; can anyone tell me where it is?"

If the tag existed, anyone could tag a post with no additional comment necessary.

Some warming snark [Dec. 27th, 2010|12:53 am]
Davis Square Snarkarama


Leave it to Davis Square to take what should be a mildly heartwarming post and find three words to whine about.

Also, incredibly, it didn't come from Turil, who actually had a polite and useful suggestion.

Somerville News suddenly notices something that's been going on since 1997 [Dec. 16th, 2010|01:30 pm]
Davis Square Snarkarama


Somehow they just discovered this week that the Somerville Arts Council's December event is called the Illuminations Tour.

The Somerville News said this? [Nov. 17th, 2010|10:48 pm]
Davis Square Snarkarama


A Somerville News 'View from Prospect Hill' editorial asks:
What can we do to raise the level of discourse in this city?
May I suggest that they look in a mirror? This is the paper whose NewsTalk column routinely calls local politicians by names like 'Princess Rebekah' and 'Queen Pat'.

What!? I can't hear you? [Nov. 2nd, 2010|09:40 am]
Davis Square Snarkarama

I'm sorry, I couldn't hear your church bells over the sound of the same buskers every week and the plane noise...

Though I wonder if perhaps she's posting on behalf of someone else again? It has happened before. I had to join so I could post this here, as I was far too tempted to post the above as a comment to the OP.

:Edited for HTML issues and a misuse of the word here/hear thanks to my smartphone.:

Second and third chances.... [Oct. 22nd, 2010|02:08 pm]

I wonder how many requests to "vote" for them we'll see.  I think we're at three....

Someone needs to make me a mod icon [Oct. 20th, 2010|05:15 pm]
Davis Square Snarkarama


I'm swiping this from another community I'm a part of. There's been an annoyingly large amount of spam journals trying to join the community, and it would be nice if they could be headed off at the pass, rather than needing individual attention.

This community has moderated membership. That means that all requests go through me. That means that, as a conscientious mod, I take a look at all people making membership requests. This is annoyingly like work, but the alternative is that anyone can join, making a mess, and requiring more work.

Things that will likely get you rejected:

You have no journal entries.

You have no friends.

You have only communities friended.

Your journal was created today.

Your journal is in Cyrillic.

Your journal was created today, you have no entries, your location is Germany, you have no friends, you're a member of about 1000 communities, your userpic is one I've seen on a whole mess of other German journals that have been posting porn and/or spam to communities with open membership.

If you feel you have gotten rejected without cause, look at this list, and determine if it applies to you. You may ask for reconsideration.

What a difference 100 feet makes, huh? [Sep. 24th, 2010|11:26 am]
Davis Square Snarkarama


So, wait, you've had zero problems whatsoever and are now convinced the VFW will fill your backyard with staggering, vomiting drunks?  Because it's moving 100 feet?

You'd think this would be a concern because the neighborhood is less than a five minute walk from, let me see here, NINE locations that serve liquor in some form...

Parking Spots are People Too. [Sep. 17th, 2010|08:23 pm]
Davis Square Snarkarama

Parking spots aren't just for cars, you gaiz!. After all, suggesting that spots on the side of the road that were created for the purpose of parking cars is just limiting ourselves and taking precious space for other things. Like hula hoops.

followup: that knockouts haircut guy [Sep. 15th, 2010|01:11 am]
Davis Square Snarkarama

Do you remember the guy who wanted to know if the Hooters Salon would work in Davis Square? It caused a huge amount of snark in the main community. It stood in my head as a record thread.

He apparently wound up opening out in Framingham of all places. It's a side deal on groupon today (note! no referral code. bleah. seriously). The reviews are uniformly 4-stars, and suspiciously similar sounding to each other.

That was truly an epic snark, though. You just don't see stuff like that these days unless Turil gets involved. *sniff*. Ah, the good old days.
