Before we get to the Sound Off winners, a quick announcement: the Sound Off will be on hiatus for a few weeks – sorry to those of you who were salivating for more giveaways next week. But we’ll be back, don’t worry.
Now on to the prizes: this week we asked you to pitch a movie [...]
By now, you’ve probably heard that a movie adaptation of G.I. Joe is coming out in August. But Hollywood, apparently not content with toys like the Transformers, is branching out into board games. There aren’t any firm details yet, but movies based on Candy Land, Battleship and Where’s Waldo? are all in various stages of [...]
Last week, we challenged you to come up with the best vanity license plate ever, just to make driving just that much more exciting (woo!). We’ll get to the winners and just a second, but first, and important PSA:
Kristin, where are you?
Psst! Kristin! You won last week’s Sound Off! We e-mailed you a couple times [...]
Rhode Islanders will soon be able to pay for vanity license plates honoring WaterFire and, if the Senate OKs them, the Red Sox and New England Patriots. If you could put anything on a license plate, what would it be?

This week, we asked for your favorite little facts that are so typical of the area. As always, you responded in force…although the promise of a [...]
This week, we heard tell of a study that found people in Massachusetts and Rhode Island are not the best drivers in the world. Shocking. Well, now that that study is over, the Institute of Obviousness needs something new to “find out.” Find their next “research” topic and you could win a $25 gift certificate [...]
This was a great week for the BRU Sound Off. We asked you for your local summer plans, and you responded in a big way. From haunted tours to beach volleyball to just bumming around the mall, you guys had some great suggestions. However, only one person can be the winner each week. That winner [...]
