The Laid-Off Life: Year One

Recently, I surpassed my anniversary of one year since my layoff. No party, no fireworks, but plenty of self-reflection and introspection. But I did mark the date by watching the movie "Up in the Air". There’s a film that will make your unemployment depression take a whole new spiral. One line in the movie, about being fired and how people react to it among many other themes, hit me. It says, "Commonly, it takes one month of searching for every$10,000 you expect to earn in salary."

The Laid-Off Life: Job Interview with the Vampire

I totally, utterly, and completely bombed a job interview once. I talked too much; I know this because the interviewer told me so. He said I didn’t have the direct experience they were looking for. My sense of humor was so far removed from his, it could have been in a different room. He even asked me what kind of music I liked. When answering the generic and usually-safe “anything but country”, he scowled and informed me that was his favorite. He told me the next time I get an interview...

The Laid-Off Life: Being The Change You Wish To See

In this most-trying of economic and employment times, we are trained to believe – no, we inherently believe – that the simple fact of having a job when others don’t should make us happy. "It could be worse", we tell ourselves. "At least I have a job. Who am I to complain?" I would imagine that every employed person in America knows at least one, and most likely several, people that are unemployed. Family, friends, until-recently-co-workers. They most likely have been avoiding an axe...

The Laid-Off Life: The Impression That I Get

A lot of lip service - in the job hunt, in dating, in sales, in life - is paid to first impressions. You know, they say you never get a second chance to make a first impression (or a second chance to fix your parachute). But often and nearly always overlooked is your last impression. A really good pie can be excellent at the first bite, but if that final taste is sour, that’s your lasting impression of the pie. Bet you’ll never order that pie again, and maybe not even patronize that...

The Laid-Off Life: Second First Impressions

I have a second interview this week for a job I have a feeling I’m really close to. Second interviews are a fluid thing that can be strikingly different than your initial interview, a different animal all together. Or they can be the same with different people. Or it can be a test to see if a first (and last) impression holds up under different circumstances. So, how does one prepare for a call-back and what should one expect? I’m no expert (as I’ve me

The Magic of Barbecue Turkey Bacon (The Bacon Critic)

Like Oprah and her bread, I love bacon. It’s nature’s perfect food; entrée, side, or topping. Every meat-eating mammal agrees (well, maybe not those of the porcine persuasion). So rarely do I polish off a pristine sandwich, stack of pancakes, or slice of pizza without the addition of a slab of cured and fricasseed pork belly. That’s doubly true with the Great American Burger. And friends, The Public Eye produced some killer Memphis-style

Long-Form Album Review: Arkells: 'Morning Report'

With the release of Morning Report, Ontario’s Arkells are showing the strongest signs of not only taking the reins of the Tragically Hip’s high horse, but doing something The Hip-sters were never able to do: Break it big in the US.

Get Out of the Suburbs: The Fillmore Philadelphia

If you haven’t noticed, suburban friends, Philly is going through quite a revolution. Publications from New York to Katmandu have taken notice. We’re a World Heritage City. We’re a new foodie mecca. The local music scene is 🔥, as the kids say. AND YOU’RE MISSING OUT.

Who’s Embarrassing Philly This Week: Ed Rendell

Listen Gov, we get it. You agree with Trump way more than whoever the Democrat version of Reince Priebus is cares to admit. Trump loves to call people losers; you love to call people wusses. Trump wants to “Make American Great Again”; you speculate on “How America's Leaders Lost the Guts to Make Us Great”. But for now, please, until November 8th, can you have a little more quiet time? Save those conversations for your 3am Wawa

Who’s Embarrassing Philly This Week: Bill Cosby

Bill was our guy. Our Philly guy. Our Brand Ambassador. The Temple guy. The Fat Albert guy. All those sweatshirts. The world knew Bill Cosby, the comedian, was from Philly and Philly was damned proud of it. Now the world knows that Bill Cosby, (alleged) rapist, is from Philly, and it makes me ill. Being the home of the World’s Most Famous Pervert is now part of our brand.

Who’s Embarrassing Philly This Week: Crossing Broad Commenters

Much has been written about Kyle Scott, founder, editor, and fire-stoker-in-chief of Crossing Broad and his blog. He isn’t afraid to be everything that the traditional media’s sports blogs aren’t, and ‘irreverent’ is just the beginning. He eschews breaking down plays and game recaps in favor of which player is cheating with which other player’s wife and what epithet is coming out of Riley Cooper’s mouth today and where Jeff Carter is vacationing (yes, still). And not only is that what Scott...
