Surrounded by it every day, we often forget that our region has a unique accent. It's not until it's blatantly pointed out that we realize we collectively over-emphasize long "O" vowel sounds and unnecessarily abbreviate syllables. Today's video is all about our accent. It's hilarious at first, but kind of sad by the end. Do we really say "wooder?" [ more › ]

Introducing ... KeyPulp!

As we teased on Twitter yesterday and revealed to Technically Philly this morning, January 31 is not the last you'll be seeing of the Phillyist editors and staff. True, Phillyist won't be updated after 5:00 p.m. next Monday, but, as that song we got stuck in your heads last week goes: "every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." [ more › ]

Thanks for Four Years of Awesome

It was a (presumably) cold November day in 2006 when I made my humble debut on Phillyist with a post called Elevating My Frustration. It was about elevator etiquette. I've come a long way since then. I featured interesting Twitter users and hope some of them will follow us into the future at @keypulp. Show More Summary

Humane Society Launching "End Dogfighting" Campaign This Week

The statistics are grim: 2010 saw five times as many reported dogfighting cases as 2008. That's up to as many as 1,177 investigations last year. It's unclear whether dogfighting is on the rise or just something people are more comfortable reporting, but one thing is certain: dogs don't deserve it and the scum who do it need to go to jail.
