I would if I could return to old Rhode Island, but, unfortunately the old rural Rhode Island that was chock-o-block full of New England weirdness has been irreparably transformed by droves of horrible New Yorkers.

So fucking true. Narragansett Beach is like an episode of Jersey Shore. The guidos — Rhode Island guidos, like the guy on the Jersey Shore show — used to have Scarborough Beach. It was a given that everyone from Johnston, Cranston, North Providence, and West Warwick went to Scarborough, and the generic, pasty, flabby rest of us went to Narragansett. Sure, the sand view at Scarborough was of perfect, glistening bodies, but the background noise was disco or some other horrible shit. Now? Narragansett is wall to wall with NJ/NY folks and their goddamned loud music. I go to East Beach in Charleston and walk half a mile to have my own huge quiet space.
