wow obsession is a fascinatingly banal thing
cocky obsession is an assinatingly anal thing.
I was down in fishtown last month. Not so working class these days!
It's still fairly working class, but the hipsters have been taking over for a couple of years now.
Philly's obsession with Rocky (and I'm a native, by the way) definitely runs deep. My favorite local BBQ spot (well, in Manayunk) is named Tommy Gunn's.
Also, is this the "Angry Video Game Nerd?"
Hipsters are taking over Fishtown? Fucking Fishtown?
I guess they gave up on Northern Liberties. I dunno.
well, I was down there for a birthday party and they seemed pretty hipstery to me. I didn't want to go to a hipster bar, so my friend took me to some irish bar nearby and drink cheap beer and listen to, if possible, terrible music from the 80s. I went into some place who's name I forgot (Anthony's I think). It was lit like a chicken coop and had this metal troff at the foot of the bar where all the runoff came out. One imagines that it probably flows with blood now and then.
The people were friendly enough. I had fun.
That night I turned the color o' a ghostly galleon and did let the thirty cocktail weenies that I ate at the party into the Philadelphia river via toilet.
Have no fear. Fishtown's always going to have it's Albanian mafiosi

Why do I think this man has a restraining order or two placed against him?

"Could we be looking at one of the rooms where Rocky punched the meat or packed the meat? Or could it just be wishful thinking?"

Surprisingly well produced.
I love how the filmmakers never got out of the car in Kensington. I wouldn't either.

But the reason we're here is because ROCKY JUMPED THE PARK BENCH!

Yeah, whatever. Where's that hill where Rocky screamed Drago's name?
Didn't he do that on top of a mountain in Russia?
