  • Beer rip offs

    Is beer a poor man's drink or what? Why the fuck is my local tavern charging 4.25 for a beer. That's disgusting. And their draft is 4.00. I use to go there all the time when their prices were reasonable but they can go fuck themselves now. And as fo
  • Repressed City?

    Less a bitch than an inquiry.Maybe one exists but outside of a few aging drag queens at Reflections and the quite excellent sex shop Venus Envy, there doesn't seem to be much of a sex "scene" in Halifax at all. As far as I can tell, there're no fet pa
  • Not a punk!

    I am so sick and tired of being treated like a criminal by what sadly seems to be a majority of older people. I was yelled at by a bus driver today for wearing headphones simply because I was unaware that the 14 that I was on didn't turn into the 61. D

  • Backstage at NOFX

  • Quiet riot

    What's with the librarians who don't have in-door voices? In the King's library, it's the librarians I want to SHHH---. I don't get it, shouldn't they know better than anyone to keep it down?
  • Rotten Food

    To the very rude people at the restaurant on Quinpool Road. It was not the waitress's fault that your sausages were rotten. Check the dates on your products and please have the decency of coming to talk to the customer instead of sending the waitress to
  • Joint effort

    I have to snort every time I see devoted joggers doing their little dances down the sidewalks in Halifax. How long do you think your knees will take the
