Hey, there’s a new issue of Prairie Dog out today! So what’s in the latest edition of Regina’s Only Alternative? Lots of great stuff, that’s what! In the news section we have a great story by the magnificent Paul Dechene on the disaster that is Glendale, Arizona’s deal with the NHL to keep the Phoenix Coyotes. Paul also wrote a piece on the city clerk’s questionably nit-picky review of a petition filed by the group Regina Water Watch. It’s a must read. Plus we’ve got a piece by Saskatchewan’s feistiest sociologist about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s rapidly detumescing poll numbers.
Also: you know how music articles are, uh, maybe, sometimes, er, dull? Aidan Morgan’s epic interview with Regina punk/New Wave legend The Extroverts is not boring. It might be indulgent, ridiculous and insane, but it’s not boring. Got to be one of the greatest pieces of music journalism ever published in Saskatchewan.You should read it. Also, Chris Morin has a companion piece for less adventurous people who like their reading material bullshit-free. (#DifferentStrokes)
In addition to all that great stuff we’ve got Drink! The Beverage Issue, our annual foray into the world of booze. Okay, so we write about booze all the time. This issue has a much higher blood-alcohol content than usual, though. It’s got stuff on sangria, beer cocktails, drinking songs and douchebags.
Plus! Dakota McFadzean’s Chilblains, Street Wear, Film Reviews, Bonus Column, Queen City Confidential, Top 6 Columns, Queen City Confidential, Typo Wiener, NewsQuirks, letters and more. It’s all good stuff, There’s nothing else like Prairie Dog. Pick up a copy, or be lame!
