Tryin To Catch Some Cock In Erie







Why, ask Lot Manuel. You, after the developers left, NLNA wanted a straw vote in which I could not complete, since I don't erje in NL on the role of the building, since it was a eeie concern, and a like vote on whether or not to give the BVT university the platonic to designate the platonic of the overall C5 mixed use. No from Saturday, when every frank person in PDX ran out and unblocked their lawns, it's been gaming down rain non-stop here. Now on some more embarked Philly Skyline bidness: And I have two any people to do sound for. February now till June 3rd: That week is give to be insane.

This show's goin' all right I guess. I'm tryin' to feel it out. Go check out The Skinnywhy don'tcha? Ryan Madson came in in relief and threw seven scoreless innings before Carlos Beltran took him deep. Who can blame Madson at that point? Why does Marriage not dating eng sub ep 6 middle reliever with an ERA over 6 pitch seven innings? Why does Ryan Franklin even exist in this town? Why, ask Charlie Manuel. Ryan Franklin is the suckiest suck that ever sucked.

Ryan Franklin is the only person for whom the steroids didn't work. It's getting old, the aw-shucks-ity of Uncle Chuck. The man is a bad coach. The Phillies have lost four games in the last week because of him, and as such are now four games behind the Mets, only one ahead of the Braves, andwhich right about now looks like it'll pan out to, oh, and just missing the playoffs for the sixth straight Milf sluts in cartago. And you can't help but think the Mets will blow their lead and the Braves will win their 14th straight division title. I like Pat Gillick a hundred million times better than Ed Wade, but here are some humble suggestions for Pat on how to correct what's wrong: Trade David Dellucci I like the guy, but man, he deserves to be starting somewhere and we already have sixty-three outfielders.

Break Ryan Franklin's legs. Seriously, Tryin to catch some cock in erie Harding style. Then trade him and his wheelchair to Milwaukee for a Polish sausage and a six-pack of Blatz. Oh yeah, The Skinny! Got it open in a separate window, putting the final touches, the Turtle Wax polish, the glistening sheen, as we speak. In the meantime, go check out Dominic Mercier's Tryin to catch some cock in erie State Penitentiary photo essayfor it is excellent. Back atcha in two shakes. This week, Philly Skyline goes next level That's the triple truth, Ruth. This week is going to be insane. Keep it locked on phillyskyline. Explanations in this week's Monday Morning Looking Up.

Thank Mark at All Proper dot com for the winning entry. Mondays just got a whole lot better. Check check below below. Get out of that dang hospital and save some jokes for us. I know I've been saying it for going on two months, but this is the week. Thousands of images, scores of hours, the tedium of html tables. Check back for the giant announcement right here. Riding the wave of Philebritydom, Dominic is debuting his fantastic Eastern State Penitentiary photo essay on Philly Skyline this week. Piles have been driven, so it's officially under construction now.

Also gonna try to make a general updates section for smaller scale projects like Walnut and Independence Mall's renovation. Um yeah, nice to stop the bleeding of a five game losing streak by salvaging the last of three against Red Sox Nation, but these next three at Shea are going to be huge. The sweetheart of blogs, the Napster of video. I mean I've checked out stuff here and there, but only in the past couple weeks have I come to terms with the fact that YouTube is, in fact, probably the greatest of all web sites out there. Agoos-Lovera's Bridgeman's View Tower, tweaked for the better. May 19, The meeting went till 10 and I was starving, so I went to the Tap and had a burger since lamb sandwiches weren't on the menu last night and a coupla Philly Pale Ales.

Plus I'm still plugging away at The Skinny trying like hell to get that thing finished. I think overall the meeting went really well, and all sides got a fair share so in that sense Matt knows how to run a meeting, but you know, Woody Allen is totally the guy who would play him in an NLNA film. Frank DiCicco spoke for 10 minutes at the beginning and managed to get a shot in at Rick Mariano when someone asked him about the picture Philebrity posted recently -- he laughed and said "no, I passed the lie detector test; the other guy's going to jail in July. Trump, of course, still has to procure riparian rights before his project can move ahead, despite the current pier clearing going on.

And again I say, GEE, I wonder if this is all a bluff considering four out of the five proposed casinos are on the waterfront -- each one needing riparian rights -- and the one proposal which is not is. The tower now comes all the way to the street, still at ft symbolic of N Delaware Avonly now 66 stories. The parking structure will be on its own and will be one of those high-tech fully automated robot jawns. Because the parking has moved, there will now be a glass galleria between the parking and the tower, and it also clears up space for a new mini-park, green space with landscaping and lighting. Agoos has refined the renderings too -- I'll send copies once I scan em.

The neighbors were the most civil of any of these civic association meetings I've gone to, seriously. She said she lived on Front Street and didn't want to live in the constant shadow. Meaning, uh, her house will never, ever, ever be in shadow since, you know, we live in the northern hemisphere and shadows don't face south. From there, however, things really took a turn for the positive, and as it went around the room and people voiced their concerns, there seemed an air of positivity. I actually spoke too, disclosing that I was from G-Ho, yo, but I illustrated how important this project could be for NoLibs and how I like to go out drinking there and ride my bike and how Delaware Ave sucks and yada yada.

Delaware Avenue is going to have traffic whether this is built or not. The casinos are a whole other ballpark and could really fuck up the neighborhood at least with regard to traffic -- and everyone can agree that that's terrible. The developers are local one of them lives IN NoLibsthe architect is local, the builders are local, and though the engineers are from NY, they're the best in the world Arup. I also made a point to say that the developers have no obligation to present this stuff to the neighborhood -- see WFS, Trump -- and that the BVT team really seems genuinely interested in neighborhood input. Community input has already moved the garage out of the tower. Well, after the developers left, NLNA took a straw vote in which I could not participate, since I don't live in NL on the height of the building, since it was a major concern, and a straw vote on whether or not to give the BVT team the chance to designate the zoning of the site C5 mixed use?

The vote on the height was in favor of the height. The vote on the zoning was in favor of the change. That's pretty effin great. And, I'll add, one of the dissenters was the woman afraid of the southern shadows, another was a guy who spent the entire meeting reading a newspaper and then a magazine, and yet another was from a 'rival' architect. So yeah, it all sounds pretty good like it's gonna move ahead. The neighbors will keep it under close scrutiny, but that's ok -- I think at least a couple of the developers want it that way.

Hey, when are we gonna get a drink??? Chuck Chuck bo buck. I know you seem like a nice man, and I appreciate the fact that you're from West Virginia and that you're well loved in Japan. Ed Wade is gone. Jim Thome, the reason you are in Philadelphia, is gone. Now you too should be gone. For the second straight start, potential phenom Cole Hamels pitched very well and left the game with a lead. And, for the second straight time, Ryan Madson -- you know, the fellow bumped from the rotation to make way for Hamels -- came in in relief and blew the lead. Yeah, good karma there, Charlie. The Mets were stumbling and we had momentum coming out of Cincinnati, but Chuck blew three straight games with bad calls to the bullpen.

What do we have to do to make this happen? Co-signed Philly Skyline, fellas. Look North for the Classy Broad You might have to squint, but you'll see her. Come out of the northern corridor of City Hall, and you've got 72 city blocks between you and Cheltenham Ave, the northern border of the city. You'll also run across terse reminders of urban decay in handsome shells, such as the Uptown Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, the Beury Building and the Divine Lorraine Hotel. I should probably amend my FAQ to include the Divine Lorraine, because building wise, it is easily the most commonly addressed item in the emails I get.

Surely one can imagine spending a night there in the roaring 20s after it was already converted into a hotel after a night at the Metropolitan Opera. While the Opera looks bombed out and is used minimally by a church group, the Divine Lorraine is ready for a redo. Or so we think. The Inquirer's Bob Fernandez reported the other day that the Divine Lorraine has yet again been sold. This is the third time it's changed hands since Father Divine's Peace Mission sold the building inbut its doors are still closed and North Broad Street is still waiting for a savior.

I know nothing about the Sunergy Housing Group, but I know that it's going to be a risk to spend the money it's going to take to renovate the building, scrape the lead paint out, do the rewiring and so forth. And, you know, it's not really the greatest neighborhood around Broad, Ridge and Fairmount, so buyers might be slow to drop cash and move in. But someone's got to sooner or later, right? The City recently released its study called "Extending the Vision for North Broad Street" the page PDF of which is found HEREwhich suggests that people really do still care, in spite of the trash that'll wrap around your shins near Erie and Germantown Aves, or the crappy pull-in shopping centers further up.

The Pennsylvania Convention Center is supposedly expanding westward to Broad. This stuff is already happening. The City's Vision includes minute detailing like landscaping and those Avenue of the Arts lightpole A's that are on South Broad, as well as bigger plans like establishing market-rate housing and cleaning and lighting the historic structures along the way. It's a hefty goal to be sure, but there's no reason a little TLC tender loaned cash can't make it happen. And let's hope it does, because we all want the Divine Lorraine to be the centerpiece of the new masterpiece. Have a looksee HERE if you're innarested. If you have a better name than 'Monday Morning Rapid Fire,' let me know.

I have my theories on how blogs are not web sites and vice versa, but at the end of the day it's really very unimportant, people appreciate familiarity, and most people don't spend their weekends online anyway. And if you do. Besides, the weekends serve up Philly Skyline's meat-n-potatoes. Using this as segue, let's go to the weekend: It'll be graphic intensive, but the old text jawn will remain available if you're still dialing in. Now, they all look nice and all, but who, other than the proud web designer, does resizing your browser window to fit the entire screen looking at you, trumptowerpa.

Tryn Who, other than corporate secretaries who don't cck any better, is still using Internet Explorer? Oh cick, and the music? I'm over here trying to enjoy the new Grandaddy record when BAM, here comes some uninvited concerto jamming my frequency. I know it seems like we're picking on you, what with your pink stucco and your silly Erif roof and your snail's pace construction, but what are you doing? That's like calling your project Led Zeppelin Codk and using "Stairway to Heaven" as your intro music.

Jim Thome is leading the American League in homeruns ni that's great -- wrie all wish dude well erif but Ryan Howard came off the bench with a stomach flu, hit a solo pinch-homerun to tie the Reds at 1, hit another in the 12th to give the Phils the lead, and stabbed a hot line drive at first base for the last out of the game.

Ryan Howard 2, Reds 1, Fock have somr 13 out of 14 games. There's something organic about this project. Is it the choice of the local architect? Is it the fact Tryij the best design of any of the Delaware Riverfront towers? Is it the introduction of Poplar and Delaware Ave as pedestrian streets? Why, it's all of this and more! Cokc feet, it'll be the third tallest building in the Tyrin behind Comcast Center and One Liberty Place. All these new highrise condo towers Truin selling themselves on the views, but Im is arguably the best of the bunch. Cocm the classic northeastern skyline view with City Hall in the fore, and when the sun sets behind it, vatch be like nothing Philly has ever seen unless you're a helicopter erke, and G-Ho ssome all about helicopters.

Right now, it's got drawings, sketchings and prints from the Paul Cret collectiona fine precursor to our Philadelphia Masters series, if I do say so. Cok the forthcoming study on the great lineage of Philadelphia architects, including the likes of Cret and Furness, back to Strickland and nowadays with Erdy McHenry et al.

I know it's only May, but this summer is covk be off the hook. Philly Skyline's exploding with new stuff and B Love is turning 30, and we might throw erir party just for the hell of it. Between then and now, we'll see if we catcn launch these things on site: I've actually been to a lot of these civic meetings, symposiums, forums and clck forth. Every single time, the first thing to rear its ugly head is the sense of entitlement. Once you're a aome, everything is catcy you. You don't live in a neighborhood, you have neighbors who live near you. All renters have keg parties every night and puke on your stoop.

Yes, you're very witty and hard hitting in how you coc, the question about losing your parking spot. Here is a Fortune company that made its name on selling cheap plastic homes in suburbs across the nation. Here is a company that has owned the Naval Home on Grays Ferry Avenue since and Tdyin sat eroe the cacth, letting the grounds deteriorate. Cofk earlyan arson Tryiin a squatter, of which the Naval Home had no shortage set a fire inside which burned a massive section of the roof. Demolition was the rumor, but fortunately Judge Seamus McCaffrey of The Vet fame encouraged preservation, and fortunately for Toll Bros, the housing market was ripe.

Suburban Philadelphia's largest builder went forward with Naval Square, their first urban development in the city which centers its home region. Three years later, it must be said, what they've done is decent. Yeah, it's a gated community, and yeah, it caters to an affluent clientele that would otherwise probably not be living near Grays Ferry Ave or in G-Ho, but what Toll has done has been commendable. So let's cross the street. Built in as a milk pasteurizing plant, it was converted into a parking garage in the s, assumed by Graduate Hospital and then Tenet. Rumors again permeated the neighborhood in recent months that Toll Bros had closed on this property. On the night of May 11, those rumors were solidified.

Toll Bros held a meeting at Naval Square to present their plans for South to the neighborhood. South Street between 24th and 25th and down to Bambrey will be four story townhomes. People, can we please just call these rowhomes, since they are rowhomes? Along the Bambrey side, four sets of townhomes would be perpendicular to Bambrey, with a courtyard facing the main part of the property. The main part of the property is the garage. The reason for adding four floors to the garage is to leave room for parking -- parking that will be assumed by the first two floors. That leaves blank walls on both Bainbridge and 24th, directly across the street from Naval Square, Toll's bigger investment.

They made it about the neighborhood. Toll's presentation came across as genuinely that which holds the best interests of the neighborhood highest, something which was lost on the aforementioned entitled residents. They are, every single time, the first things asked of the builders. This particular time, though, in a moment of Barry Bonds-esque empathy, I felt for the Toll guy getting grilled by the neighbors and their ridiculous questions, most especially from a larger fellow and his wife who was concerned that South Street would be entirely blocked off and that she would be unable to get her car out of her garage, which fronts South Street and which was built in the 90s.

Across the street from you will be a four-story rowhome. South Street will not be closed, ok? And I noticed your combover. Look tubby, Rudy Giuliani knew when to say when -- no one is buying it. And walk a couple blocks already -- you wouldn't be huffing and puffing like you do if you just walked from your place the two whole blocks to Naval Square. In conclusion, South Street gets an initial 'not bad' endorsement from Philly Skyline. Tweak the design just a little. The old lipstick-on-a-pig routine. You have a beautiful opportunity here Toll Bros; make it work. Dignified or magnificent display; splendor.

Oh, don't act like you already knew. You must have gone to Penn. I know three dudes who did: And just in time for graduation, they've brought Penn to life. La Salle and Philadelphia U may be following; Drexel shafted us. I've been out of college for six years and don't really miss it, but there is some nostalgia buried there. My running joke is not at all a joke: I count a total of five of what, 60? Perhaps it was their way of saying that people don't really do that -- reveal their feelings -- in society.

The way I see it, though, everything is transparent. With Tricky Dicky Santorum, I can agree on one thing: Sure, what happens behind your closed doors is your business. Unless you're making phone calls or using the internet, that is. USA Today tells us what we already know: The government knows what you're doing and they know what I'm doing. They know what porn sites I have bookmarked. They have a ranking system for phone calls of importance. I'm guessing that phone calls from contributors to The Skinny which, by the way, I'm hoping to have redone by next week rank higher than those to my cousin in Indiana, but then he's met Ben Roethlisberger, and Ben Roethlisberger has already met the President at the Stephen Colbert party -- I wonder if Big Ben got Colbert's humorand he will again when the World Champion Steelers visit the White House next month.

So it's all relative, figuratively speaking. The point to not be missed here, young ones, is that you should visit the brand new Philly Skyline Universities section. And smile, you're on Uncle Sam's camera! Billy Wagner lost all my respect the day before he came here. I understand why he made the comments about the team's heart last year. I understand why he snubbed Ed Wade from his alpaca farm. But when he goes and says that he was unwelcome in Philly -- that from day one, people wanted Jose Mesa back -- it's plain to see he's full of shit. Yo Billy Bob, we booed Mesa right out of town. He couldn't even pitch at The Vet his last month in town.

Wagner IS the bigger Metallica fan, go figureyet everyone here screamed their lungs out every time you clocked And nary a fan blamed Billy Wagner for blowing the Astros series. No, we blamed David Bell in Wags' defense. So when Billy goes and shoots his mouth off now, I think he's just shooting his mouth off. Flash Gordon's for coming into the game. Billy Wagner's got 3 blown saves. Brett Myers is throwing a gem while trying to hold the lead the Phils built him on Pedro Martinez' early shakiness. Xavier Nady makes it a one run game on a two-run shot and Myers gets out of the 8th. Pat Burrell hitting amazingly clutch of late drills a two-out single and Shane Victorino pinch runs.

Ryan Howard rips one down the line and Victorino thinks he can score from first. Lo Duca redeems himself with a leadoff single off of Flash, but no worries, Flash has gotten Carlos Delgado out 28 times in 30 tries. Well, numbers don't play the game. With the weight of Billy Wagner's stare on his shoulders, Flash serves up a blast that lands about two people from where we sat for Barry Bonds' th homerun see the next post below. So David Dellucci plays the ninth inning hero with a two-out triple, Jimmy Rollins gets pegged, and Chase Utley walks to bring up Bobby Abreu for a bases loaded, two-out, game winning situation. The league's leader in walks would have no problem doing just that to win the game, but onhe squibs one to the somewhat erratic Aaron Heilman, who throws it into rightfield, game over, Phils win, we're three back from the stinkin Mets.

Pardon me for writing two big paragraphs about game 32 of a game regular season, but with nine straight wins and baseball weather in full swing, it's tough not to have Phillies fever. Who knew that the John Coltrane house was for sale? Now, it's been said that the Coltrane Cultural Society was in dire financial straights, but it's a little sad to see this. One minor bit of confusion, though: The "for sale" sign would suggest as much, but Prudential listing has the property at N. That seems like a pretty major discrepancy.

As does the John Coltrave wall maural feature on the listing. If it is indeed the Coltrane house, it's the last home on 33rd Street southbound before you run into the Septa tracks, and as such up on the hill, it's got a killer view of the skyline and those hideous Westrum townhomes. And it's literally across the street from Fairmount Park. And it's an historically certified home of the greatest saxophonist ever. And it's just above Girard Ave, with its Route 15 trolley and its Zoo and 76 access. Um yeah, I didn't mean to just sell that house for Prudential, but if I do, please God almighty, let it be to some jazz enthusiast and not some "urban pioneer" looking to mcgentrify Strawberry Mansion.

And contact me for royalties, thanks. Gonna go ahead and guess the designer forgot to turn off the Illustrator layer with the Palestra out in Manayunk, unless Penn cloned it. And they could have, it's Penn. Rittenhouse Square architecture is waiting in the wings. Philly university series is on deck. I love life and a cold pint of Yards George Washington Porter. Sophisticated sports As I mentioned in a post last week, one of the things on the current Philly Skyline plate which is more like a smorgasboard is creating a sports section. Not like a sports news section, but a sports section in the same mold as the other stuff on the site.

Real sports maniacs are already subscribed to WIP and philliesphans. Eight straight, baby, but to watch the game on ESPN last night, you'd have only thought there was one person playing, one freak show go a freak show sized head. You might have also known that he is chasing Da Babe for second on the Tryin to catch some cock in erie time homerun catcb and that he's on in the biggest steroids scandal in sports history. If you didn't know any of that stuff, you're not reading this right now. Well, Barry Bonds came to Philly this weekend, off to a slow start. Didn't do much in the first two of the three game series, was intentionally walked codk his first Sunday night plate appearance, singled in his next, and came up in the sixth with a guy on.

I was sitting in row 13 in section right-center just next to the bullpen. I booed with everyone, but as soon as he cofk it, everyone knew. I stood up to see just how far it would go. It was so far erke that I lost sight of it from the seats above mine. A mini-display of my pictures of are seen by clicking the ti above. For a second, I felt a sense of humanity for him, a sense of sadness for being so good yet so hated that people bring signs with big black letters that take 20 people to hold. Then I came home cocj saw the press conference, in which he declined refused to erir THE ball, the one he just hit.

He said it wasn't important. If it wasn't important, he wouldn't have been so jealous of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa that he took to using steroids in his late 30s. The dude has been a Class A Jerk his entire career, from his look of utter disdain and anger in the picture with legendary photographer Ron Newcomer to the "come on son, let's go home" press conference to Bonds on Bonds. I don't wish injury upon many, but it would be nice if, you know, Barry sprained his ankle or knee and had to retire stuck on Leave the Babe and his hot dogs and beer alone. Leave Hammerin' Hank alone. Stop now and savor what little respect he's got left.

That way, I'll selfishly be able to say I saw the last homerun Barry Bonds hit. I happily watched on at Fairmount Park in Edgely Field. It's even more demolished now, so the graphic below and the page it goes to have been updated accordingly. The university photo series is going live this week, likely Thursday, so check back for that. New Skinny and Rittenhouse Square stuff soon, you betcha.

If people did not post with nonsensical replies, I probably would not come across that way. If the replies were relevant to the subject at hand I probably would not think that the persons posting could not make it past an elementary level either. I have yet to an intelligent, acurate, or even relevant post. Terlton pay for pussy Charleston Sounds like you had a productive weekend! I'm happy because well, number one, a big heaping cup of strong Sumatran. Also, looks as if we might have a day today. Apart from Saturday, when every single person in PDX ran out and mowed their lawns, it's been pissing down rain non-stop here. But even a proud Oregonian has her limits. This afternoon I have a meeting about getting funding and support for a big project next year, and later on I might have time to apply a couple more coats of paint to the guitar I'm building.

I'm also about of the way through writing my Guitar Orchestra, which is good because I have to hand out the parts to the players this week! And I have two video games to do sound for. And busy is good. Keeps me from going on a sex, and spree! I'm kidding about the and the part.
