Doug Rice at SPC Mon. Nov. 6

Doug Rice appeared at SPC for an evening full of tales of lost genitalia. Fueled by a personal paranoia of having the family jewels swiped while asleep, Doug read from a rough piece of his upcoming memoir. The piece, though untitled, vaguely had as its subject The Perils of Metaphor in Pittsburgh.

Rice read other pieces from his upcoming memoir, including a how-to piece on bending magnetic fields so that TV rabbit ears would be able to pick up transmission signals during a Monday Night Football game that Terry Bradshaw's Steelers were playing in.
