Dog Eat Dog

Regarding Brian Freedman’s review of Hot Diggity and Underdogs:

Hot Diggity is the best by a long shot. For the food, for the staff, for the atmosphere, everything. Hot Diggity, you rock.

Those specialty hot-dog shops are overpriced bullshit. Ain’t nothing like a hot dog with mustard and cooked onions off a street vendor, period.

PHILLY OLD HEAD, via philadelphiaweekly.com

I agree that Hot Diggity is putting out better product, but you should have at least acknowledged that their dogs are $6 or $7 to Underdogs’ $3 or $4. The fact that I can walk out of Underdogs with a dog, fries and soda for less than just a dog at Hot Diggity makes them the winner in my book.

Buzz Uncut

Regarding Tara Murtha’s feature story on author Buzz Bissinger:

What will be great about the release of this book is not that it will let people get to know Buzz better, but it’ll let them get to know Zach, a truly wonderful person. And if you think Buzz is passionate on the subject of sports, get him talking about journalism and the ethics of nonfiction writing. I have never had a conversation with him on that topic that didn’t end up stiffening my own spine.

Rick Lyman, via philadelphiaweekly.com

I know Buzz. I worked with him at the Inquirer back in the 20th century. He is an honest man, a great writer and a good father. Trifecta. Read him at any cost; it’ll be good for your soul.

The Girls Next Door

Regarding Darren White’s review of “Domestic Spaces” at the DCCA:

While I greatly appreciate the writer venturing outside of Philadelphia to cover the compelling exhibitions at the DCCA, it is a shame that he does not give equal attention to works by women artists relevant to his theme. The writer engages with and discusses the work of six male artists. While he includes a list of artists, the work by women is never critically reviewed.

The writer’s oversight is indicative of women’s omission that has characterized the western art canon and routinely sidelines the work and accomplishments of women artists. While I enjoyed the article’s insights into the exhibitions, I am disappointed by what is, in effect, another instance of the marginalization of women from the greater artistic discourse.

“Referring to the service as " overbearing ", the format as a " transport ", and the manager as a " boob " is the quintessance of FATUITY for a reviewer writing one of the most irrationally wicked criticisms of a restaurant that I've ever read.

Not being a persnickety connoisseur as Leah Blewett projects herself to be, I won't say much about the cooking, quality, and taste of the food...except that in three visits my companions and I have assessed it excellent.

However, being a multi-media artist, I do declare her eye for creativity, innovation, and vision needs a magnitudinous monacle. And her writing style cries out for anger-management.
