I have always wanted to grab a case of beer and watch a roller derby….seems like a blast. Problem is I never knew Boston had it’s own crew. Apparently the Boston Massacre has been kicking ass and taking names.

There are times in the hood when you may have a problem with insects. Maybe your neighbors don’t keep a tidy house or maybe it’s just you that’s the slob. The insects around Dorchester can be pretty gangster….. I mean just last week I saw a cockroach with a “Bug Life” tattoo rolling down Geneva Ave driving a 79 Monte Carlo smoking a blunt and blasting “I Get Lifted” by George McCrae.
When you have a cockroaches that roll deep like this….you can’t be rolling up on the set spraying RAID and expect to protect your crib. You need an exterminator that comes strapped with the “Ghetto Mix”…. you need a straight “bug thug” like Rogers Pest Control.
I do love small businesses and Rogers gave me such a good laugh with their brilliant “Ghetto Mix” formula branding I had to give them a plug. They are located up on the corner of Bowdoin and Quincy Street across from Saint Peter’s Church….give them a shout @ 617-427-0810
Avalanna Routh (aka Mrs. Bieber) lost her battle with brain cancer today. But I am glad she got to spend some time away from treatment and realize her dream of meeting Justin Bieber back in February. Our thoughts and prayers are with Avalanna’s family…and we would also like to thank Justin Bieber for being such a class act and coming to Boston.

Ahh the good old Eire Pub. Always a hotbed for politics here in Dorchester. I would even go as far as saying it’s the epicenter of Boston in terms of politics. I have seen quite a few spirited debates over a pint of beer in this bar. I grew up a few blocks from here and remember the old political rallies down at Adams Corner. Free trolley rides to the rally meant endless possibilities for a crew of young Dot Rats with a stockpile of eggs and nothing better to do….ohhh the fun we we had. The rally would shift into high gear as the candidates and their supporters would spill out of the Eire and take the stage beside Blasis hardware store..(now it’s the Fat Belly Deli). I can even remember watching the presidents stopping in for a beer during their campaign runs as well.
Here’s a post from last year that Brown and Flynn were playing grab ass during the Irish Festival over at the Eire. Sure enough, Saint Flynn gave Brown the endorsement earlier this year. I like Brown, but voting for oil subsidies while Exxon Mobil is making record profits is not indicative of someone who holds “the people’s seat”. Hey numbnuts….why does a company that made 486 billion dollars in total 2011 revenue deserve or need any of my tax dollars? Maybe you should have been a little less of an “independent thinker” and thought about us.
All BS aside, check out these Brown supporters standing in close quarters with a bunch of Warren supporters out in front of the Eire Pub recently. I’m obviously a Warren guy, but I have to respect the Brown camps desperate tactic of doing Indian chants and tomahawk gestures. When you have nothing else to stand on….you might as well be fresh pr*cks! If nothing else it gave me a good laugh. You stay classy Brown staffers!
God bless Dorchester…and god bless the United States of America!
I am Dot Rat and I approve this message!
The title goes to Morrissey Boulevard Wine & Liquors.
Based on our poll…this is the best packie in Dorchester. I asked you to pick based on price, selection and cleanliness and couldn’t agree more…they run a tight ship. The store will receive an official Dotrat.com certificate for best packie, a tshirt and some serious bragging rights around Dot.
I mean talk about crushing life…. You have millions of women who adore the ground you walk on…. you’re the original Jason Bourne and Will Hunting…..now your like “I’m bored, I think I will call up my buddy Brad Pitt and figure out how to go Benjamin Button on your asses cause that’s how I roll.”
You need more creative ways to drive up revenue. The special sauce you need is sex appeal. Take the model of a Hooters or a MaryLou’s coffee and run with it.
Good looking people = A good looking bottom line.
Here’s a good example of a uniform redesign. You’re welcome!
Where do people get the time to sit on a sidewalk for 2 days for a f*cking IPhone? Technology is a wonderful thing…don’t get this geek wrong …but it’s an IPhone. Even if these folks have jobs, why would they want to waste a day off to hug a sidewalk on Boylston Street for a phone? Do these folks even make phone calls? Are we substituting an IPhone for a void in our lives?
Lets examine an ideal day off for me….
- Sleep Late
- Have Sex
- Eat Breakfast
- Have Sex
- Take another nap
- Have Sex
- Pretend to cut the hedges
- Talk about Dinner while making a pitch for more sex.
- Quiet Time/Pats Game
- Pats Win – Sex / Pats Lose – Sympathy Sex
- Another Nap
- Dinner – Preferably takeout to avoid cleaning dishes
Productive? No….but it’s a day off….it’s time to recharge and be social. But if you take sex out of that entire list….then fill the slots with IPhone usage/obsession…..
“DING DING DING….you found the void….what does he win Jim?”
“Pack your Geiger counter and get ready for an all expenses paid trip for one to Beatty Nevada to participate National Foursquare championship where you will compete to become the first Mayor of Yucca Mountain.”
Point: Spend less time filling voids and more time filling voids.
