    Two Boston-area magicians involved in bar brawl, each sustains massive loss of hit points

    Straight out of my neck of the woods here in the Boston area, the Cambridge Chronicle is reporting that two magicians “conjured up a bar brawl” this past weekend. Apparently one magician went into a bar (this sounds like a setup to a bad joke) and said to another magician, “Hey I know you from the magician store.” After that, all hell broke loose for some reason as the man… Read More

    Line for Boston Apple Store stretches four city blocks

    Oh, hello there. I’m patiently waiting for the new Boylston Street Apple Store to open here in Boston. Did I need to show up four hours early?

Seems nobody told them about the food chain and how humans are atop said food chain. Anyhoo, you might be interested to… Read More
