Hey everyone,

Just got back from Philadelphia. I had very limited internet access while I was there, and what I did have I had to use for work, so don't be surprised if I comment on something from last week.

Philly was pretty fucking awesome. I had a really hard time getting used to people actually being polite to me, and to traffic signals actually meaning something. We ate at a few badass restaurants, the most notable of which was this tapas-ish place that has a whole page of different cheese selections, and all sorts of fancy-ass beer. I also got to spend some time wandering around the city taking pictures of interesting things. And here some of them are, below the cut...

Masonic Temple wide

This is an old Masonic Temple, which is all giant and badass and Moorish-looking.

Masonic Temple arch

Closeup of the Masonic temple arch.

Satan Clause

Where's your god now? This is the most evil Santa Claus I've ever seen.

City Hall Plaza

Some weird castle-looking thing on the inside of City Hall plaza.

Misc building

Random building plus neat clouds.

Pennsylvania Railroad

For some reason this made me think of Monopoly.

Rocky staircase

(Insert Rocky reference here) While here, I saw at least 3 different people running up the stairs and/or waving their arms like retards.

Tit grab

Statue near the Rocky stairs. This chick is totally tweaking her nipple.


I have no idea what this is doing here.

Mice Ears

They put the chocolate mice next to the chocolate human ears. I hope that was intentional.

Pale Horse

Even Mennonite shopkeeps like John Vanderslice.

Amtrak ceiling

Bigass ceiling. Big what? Ass ceiling.

Amtrak statue

Statue in the 30th Street station.

I would so run up the stairs and wave my arms like a retard. I don't think I could possibly resist.

I won't say I wasn't sorely tempted... in fact, maybe I did but just didn't memorialize it with my cameraphone...

I hope so, because letting such an opportunity slip by would just be too too bad. :)

Yeah, I would do it. I would do it twice. (And then collapse gasping for breath.)

That didn't sound right at all.

Yay, Philly!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. :)

Thanks! It was pretty sweet. I wish I could've taken pictures in the Mutter Museum (anatomical weirdness attached to a Med school). There was some crazy shit in there... but also some super-attentive guards with an aversion to cellphone cameras.

There are no pics of you. Why are there no pics of you? I demand pics of you! :p

Y'know, I didn't take any pictures with myself in them this time around. Most of the pictures were taken when I was wandering around the city by myself, and it's hard for me to take a picture of myself without it looking like a bad Myspace picture. As a consolation prize, I've commented using a userpic of me with silly glasses.

I'm surprised no one has yet blurted out with the oh-so-obvious Church Lady exclamation:

"Could it beeeeeeeee... SATAN??!!!" XDDDDDDDD

That said, looks like you had a great trip! :D

Yes. I think it could be Satan. And that's why it's now one of my userpics.

Yeah, I really like Philly. Would go again, etc. PA is actually one of Heather's potential job search targets, so we may end up living there eventually...

Bill Conti - Gonna Fly Now
John Linnell - Pennsylvania
Tom Waits - Chocolate Jesus

I've never seen Rocky, so I would have not "gotten it."

"Where is your God now??"
"Oh, he's in chocolate form, next to the mice and ears."

I don't know if I've seen Rocky since I was really little, but a lot of people have parodied it. There's this whole big workout montage thing where Rocky runs around a lot and then runs up some stairs and yells while brandishing his fists. Good times.

I hadn't heard any of John Linnell's solo stuff before. It's interesting.

Good call on the Chocolate Jesus thing. Y'know, this entry soundtrack thing may be the best idea ever.
