Debbie and Friends Live in Philly

Last weekend, while the Mrs. slumped into her cubicle for an unpleasant Saturday morning of shuffling papers, the Bear, Mouse and I traveled to Philly for the Debbie & Friends show at World Cafe Live.  We’d been enjoying their ab-fab animated music videos over the past several months, but this […]

Peter Pan at The Arden – Kid’s Theater Review

At it’s core, The Arden’s Peter Pan is an elaborate game of playing house.   Just below the surface though, and something especially noticeable in their miraculous production of Douglas Irving’s adaption, are larger truths about what it means to be young, joyful and free – three things best experienced […]

I'll Always Love You Harry

Harry Kalas, you are the man. Your the primary reason I love baseball and, more specifically, baseball on the AM dial so very much. At the start of every season I reminisce all those hours spent in my bedroom as a child listening to your beautiful voice. You taught me […]
