This Weekend: It Takes Two

Friday, February 1st, 2013

FRIDAY: >>> Friends, come join us where we’re sitting right now (at AKA Music, way in the back) for an in-store with the awesome, loud shoegaze of Nothing. >>> Taking a break from his usual duties as a bandleader, Philebrity award nominee, and pizza artist, DJ Langor will be bringing you all the jams you […]

We Didn’t Watch Do No Harm And Neither Did You

Friday, February 1st, 2013

We mentioned earlier in our post about the finale of 30 Rock that we didn’t watch Do No Harm last night, even though it’s set in Philly, because it just looked too bad to sit through. We also asked if you guys watched it, but don’t lie, we know you didn’t. How do we know […]

Film Sweat: (Un)Dead And Loving It

Friday, February 1st, 2013

RECOMMENDED: Well, it was bound to happen sometime, and we’re shocked it took this long, but please welcome Warm Bodies, our first wide-release zombie rom-com. The promos for the film, from Jonathan Levine (50/50), make it look like the kind of half-assed genre-mashing retread that we’re used to seeing hit screens and fail spectacularly both […]

>>> Welcome everyone, to the theater rumblings, glad you could join us. Please take your seats and turn off your cellphones: The Stagehands Union, IATSE Local 8, has reached an agreement with the Philadelphia Theater Company to end their strike.

A Brief Farewell To 30 Rock, Or: We Did Not Watch Do No Harm

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Last night’s series finale of 30 Rock was a thing to behold. It balanced some true emotional moments with the utter silliness and weirdness that had made the show so enjoyable for the last seven seasons. It also avoided many of those series finale cliches that tend to leave a black mark on the show’s […]

Noontime Nuggetz: The Goats, “Typical American”

There was a time, yon children, when the men in the video clip above were the coolest people in this entire city.

Corbett’s Son-In-Law Busted In FBI Sting, Totally Ruining The Gov’s Friday

Friday, February 1st, 2013

TGIF, right Tom Corbett? Undoubtedly hoping his PLCB announcement would be the big Gov-related story of the week, the Aging White Man was this close to the weekend. He had planned his normal Friday morning routine: A nice breakfast with an extra piece of bacon (because hey, it’s Friday), a short getting-ready-for-work montage soundtracked by […]

From The Desk Of Adam Brodsky: A People’s History Of The PLCB

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Doesn’t this look like an inviting place to shop? I seldom find myself in agreement with Governor Corbett, but this week, he announced a plan to privatize liquor sales across the commonwealth and I almost did a spit-take. He of course cited the antiquated state store system and touted the fiscal benefit of a private […]

To The Staff Of Free People, Regarding The Most Autobiographical Product You Have Ever Produced

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Know thyself. As many of you know — because this is you we’re talking about, after all — on any given day, roughly 65% of this site’s readership comes from page loads at the Urban Outfitters/Free People/Anthropologie/BHLDN compound down at the Navy Yard, or, as we like to call it, the Etsy Deathstar. (The other […]

Newspaper Guild Reaches The Most Meh Deal Anyone Could Expect To With Inky & DN Ownership

Friday, February 1st, 2013

For those of you following the ongoing negotiations between the Newspaper Guild and Interstate General Media, the current ownership of Philly’s two dailies: There is news! It is meh! But at the very least, it is not the massive chopping block many had feared. Rather, more slow chipping away, more glacial rot. The tentative agreement […]
