Cee In a New Light

Regarding Elliott Sharp’s Music Issue feature on Cee-Knowledge:

I love Digable Planets and I can’t wait for the reunion. Cee-Knowledge solo projects are hot. The Cosmic Funk Orchestra has a great show and thought provoking lyrics. Their first solo album The Intifadah (Uprising) had me ready to fight the power and the recent release of Futuristic Sci-Fi is musically phenomenal. I love it!

I love Cee-Knowledge’s music and he is not too bad to look at either. I got all his indie releases and I look forward to his new music with his band the Cosmic Funk Orchestra and of course I’m a fan of the Digable Planets. I think they helped change the landscape of hip-hop when they released “Rebirth of Slick” in the ’90s. It’s about time Philly showed him and his music some love!

Italian Delight

Regarding Brian Freedman’s review of Joseph Scarpone’s Ulivo:

My friends and I were in, just before New Year’s Eve, and had a great time. Went back again two nights ago. The menu seemed to change some, but the pork osso bucco special was amazing. Octopus and gnocchi were very good too. Best rice pudding I’ve had in a long time. Our server this time was nice, but seemed a little overwhelmed. Very affordable. I’ll be back.

I was there a week ago and had a very disappointing experience. We arrived early (6:30 p.m.), and the place was empty but still our food didn’t come for an hour and wasn’t great (small portion of fish, tepid chicken dish). I wouldn’t go back again.

“Dear Adamma
As Executive Director of the Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia I want to express my dismay over the awkward and amateurish review of the play Proof, recently published in PW. While I am not calling into question theparticular opinions of this critic, I am calling out the judgment of the editor for allowing such a poorly crafted piece to run. To suggest that a theatre-goer is better served by downloading the Netflick suggests the reviewer is staggeringly oblivious to why people choose live theatre over film in the first place. Just as theatre artists are held accountable to high quality performances by their audiences, we must expect the editors of our major media outlets to do the same with their critics.
