Fringe redesigned Washington DC journalist Greg Piper’s bi-coastal political blog to match the quirky name and feel of intimacy of the original site. Utilizing a backend Movable Type blog CMS, The Smoking Room offers comments, trackbacks, and of course, Greg’s snarky charm.
Number nineteen comes at you like a bullet train, and this one packs more punch than a political pundit at a party poking puppies with a pickle. Indeed, it’s the week after the election, and so we discuss politics with Washington D.C. correspondent Greg Piper, who discusses non-voting, free speech and porn, and new methods [...]
Greg Piper may be back to blogging, but his return has been marred somewhat by the current inability to post anything, which explains his ten day disappearance. He is working on resolving the issue and will be back to posting regular updates on Jessica Alba-monkey pairings and his bitter take on the state of the [...]
Piper’s trouble finding a church in DC isn’t the usual one you hear from serious evangelicals, with excuses ranging from “The pastor is a woman” to “The Sunday School is a joke” to “I can’t wake up that early!” No, Greg has trouble finding directions online, and lives in an area where church names are [...]

I’m not dead, just fantastically busy with planning, packing, and partying–I believe they’re the three phases of a cross-country move–so updates will be lighter this week. However, I will be doing one from this weekend, which was a hoot and a half. Greg Piper drove from DC to spend Friday night and part of Saturday [...]
Greg Piper, despite the free market facade, poses his TicketMaster gripes to his blog and muses on meeting some key Hill people to try and push some government regulation on the un-American corporation. This is an evil, egomaniacal, renegade corporation that screws over earnest, low-wage concertgoers…there must be some room for enterprising populist Dems and [...]
Say, is John Kerry ever going to release those military records like he promised? How good are you at English? Maybe not so good after taking this remedial quiz. I passed, by the way. Via Tim Blair I’m sure as heck not going to post a “blogger code of ethics” on my site, least of [...]
Piper links to a Slate article in which Disney, Michael Moore, and the Weinsteins used the spectre of censorship and corporate veils to reap a tidy profit with a little film called Fahrenheit 9/11.
