 • So Long and Thanks for All the Fish
    So Long and Thanks for All the Fish Just days before Live 8 in late June of 2005 the inimitable John Carroll Phillyist's first editor let the world know that Phillyist was live and online.

 • Thanks for Four Years of Awesome
    Thanks for Four Years of Awesome It was a (presumably) cold November day in 2006 when I made my humble debut on Phillyist with a post called Elevating My Frustration. It was about elevator etiquette. I've come a long way since then. I featured interesting Twitter users and hope some of them will follow us into the future at @keypulp. I wrote not one but two posts on the mysterious Toynbee tiles. The local sleuths who spent years investigating them were the subject of a Sundance-winning documentary called Ressurect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles. [ more › ]

 • A Little Friendly Advice For Our South Philly Neighbors
    A Little Friendly Advice For Our South Philly Neighbors As we make our way to work in the aftermath of yet another winter storm with no running buses many of us will be digging out cars and braving the treacherous streets of Philadelphia. Later upon returning home from work far too many people will be faced with the reality that some a-hole stole their perfectly sculpted parking space during the day forcing them to park presumably near the Sports Complex.

 • The 2011 State of the Union
    The 2011 State of the Union Under normal circumstances we here at Phillyist post a video each day that in some way pertains to Philadelphia or its surrounding area. Since all that's really going on today is snow snow freezing rain and more snow we're going to go national instead and share last night's State of the Union address in its entirety in case you missed it or wish to argue with your computer monitor a little more. Whether you're Democrat Republican Independent or a Teabagger take a look. Even if you don't agree with what's being said it's important for you to have an understanding of the political atmosphere in this country right now if only so that you can go complain to Twitter about it later.

    En Garde! This past Saturday Penn hosted the Philadelphia Invitational a season-opening men's and women's fencing event that saw fencing squads from schools such as Duke and UNC don their plastrons and knickers and do sabered battle in University City. Penn's men's team ranked seventh nationally was totally dominant. They went a perfect 6–0 on the day only coming close to defeat against Duke. Here's a quick video recap with an interview with Penn junior Vidur Kapur. Errol Flynn ain't got shit on these bucklers of swash. [ more › ]

 • Phillyist Playlist: Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield at World Cafe Live
    Phillyist Playlist: Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield at World Cafe Live What better cure for the Monday blues than a little alt-rock fantasy soap opera of sorts at the World Cafe Live? Tonight we have Evan Dando [MySpace] and Juliana Hatfield [MySpace] two former poster children of the grunge movement with a lot of history together. Both from Boston Hatfield and Dando have gone through various iterations of living together rumored knocking boots (Hatfield says she belongs to "a distinguished though probably small group of girls who can claim the distinction of having said no to going all the way with Evan Dando ... I lost my virginity to Spike Jonze") breaking hearts and making music over the last twenty-five years. They recently reunited for two shows in New York City which then inspired a small fall tour through the East Coast that continues into University City tonight. [ more › ]

After reaching an indisputable maturity in his early sculpture created from 1946 to 1959 Twombly returned to working in three dimensions in the mid-1970s and continued to cast new works up until his passing in 2011.http://www.philamuseum.org/exhibitions/797.htmlSeptember 24 2013 >> read more or comment
