Rocky Decision Reviewed
"I thought Philly had more class than that. They shouldn't have a statue of a phony boxer in front of their museum; and they should have a statue of a REAL Philly boxer, Joe Frazier, somewhere in the city." -- BushBites, commenting in the Huffington Post.
"Rocky is part of Philadelphia's identity, and that statue is part of Philadelphia. Every day, tourists (and locals) run up the art museum steps and punch their fists in the air like Rocky did. I had no problem when they moved it to outside the sports arena, because it seemed to fit in better there, but I don't mind having it back at the art museum." -- ddb in reply.
"Well, it is more animated than Stallone's "acting." -- Dennis.

Your Helpful Neighborhood Philebrity
What is the world coming to? Philebrity looks in the mirror and decides:
Let's get useful. Service journalism with a snark.
Introducing the Philebrity weekly Reader. (Not that publication.) A once-a-week email so you can plan your lives around bands that sound vaguely familiar, and follow the comings and goings of the locally famous:
In The Reader, you'll find concert and event picks, as well as trendoid bits and style stuff that may be a bit outside the realm of our daily site. What's more, you'll get this stuff in advance, rather than the usual Philebrity 4:30-in-the-afternoon last-minute evening picks. Those work fine on their own, but we know how it goes: You're busy. You want to plan things. How nice for you.

For The Man Who Has Everything
Peskyapostrophe had reservations about knitting another gift for Mr. Fish. A sweater and socks never worn. A devil hat dissed.
A Sirius radio cozy.
He's using it in his work van.
And is on the road to redemption.
