Every once in a while I shoot photos that never see the light of day on Twitter, FB, Instagram, or in one of the media outlets where I peddle them. For the media shots, I might see something that is “newsworthy” send it to an outlet, but in the end they’re not run for what ever reason.

Today is my friend Molly Eichel’s last day writing the Philadelphia Daily News Philly Gossip Column, she’s heading to the Philadelphia Inquirer to be the assistant features editor. Eichel was at the helm of the widely read column since February 2013 when the prolific, sometimes infamous Dan Gross took a buy out during one of the previous owner, Interstate Media’s downsizing of the paper.
Eichel had been a features writer, and brought that talent to the column, as she often wrote long form, in depth, interesting articles on her subjects instead of reporting on bad behavior and divorces. During her tenure she’s broken lots of stories on celebrities and Philly notables, including the recent news on Kaci McDonnell’s split with fiance Aaron Murry and Nicki Minaj partying with Meek Mill at 1825 Nightclub. Often people thought Molly and I were competitors as I chat about gossip here on the blog and on my twitter account, but we were actually comrade’s, covering stories, often different ones, occasionally the same ones, but always from different angles, sometimes sourcing each other.

And during her entire tenure my celebrity/notable photos have appeared in her column a few times a month. http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/phillygossip/Tony-Goldwyn-fetes-the-Innocence-Project.html
We do as you know, work for the same media outlet, Interstate General Media, LLC (I’m a freelance contributor.) With my own column, and my photos appear in the Phila Inquirer. Just last week I had a photo in the weekend section in an A.D. Amorosi article about Gene London at the Flower Show next week.
it’s back. A few people have asked me where diD Woof Woof Wednesday go, and I had no good excuse on why I stopped doing it. So it’s back here goes. Woof. I scour my SM for the cutest dog and sometimes cats, rabbits, horses etc to showcase every Wednesday. Plus since I don’t have a pet i get to relish in all their cuteness too.

Last week I was on the set of the movie Creed (Rocky 7), which has been filming in the Philadelphia area since January 26, 2015.
Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) has been out and about at several restaurants, ie Estia, D’Angelo’s, Le Virtue and Primo’s Hoagies, and on set, but the only sighting we’ve had of Michael B. Jordan (Adonis Creed) was a tip that he was at Fox and the Hound early in January. Last week he spent the day on the set of Adrian’s Restaurant, (Victor’s Cafe) in South Philadelphia at 13th and Dickenson.
Creed will follow the son of Apollo Creed, yes son, early published reports said that it was Apollo Creed’s grandson, but the script was rewritten in January to make Jordon his son instead, and it makes sense. Update: Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight
champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no
denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia,
the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with
a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Apollo Creed died in 1985 when he was 43, his son can be no younger than 29. I first broke this story on Fox 29 last Tuesday about the change in the script. I thought something was up since they only cast Phylicia Rashad as Apollo Creed’s widow, and no one as Adonis’ parents. (Creed’s new re-write isn’t even updated on IMDB yet, so this is sizzling hot news.)
This week the movie moves to Aston, PA with a cast of thousands of extras to film a major fight between Adonis Creed and his nemesis, Liverpool boxer and staunch Everton soccer fan Tony Bellew (Monday at PPL Park) who plays Pretty Boy Porter – the nemesis of Apollo Creed’s son.
A few weeks ago Stallone appeared with Bellew at an Everton soccer game in Liverpool, England. He filmed the fans during half time, which will be edited into the scenes filmed this week at SunCenter studios. He had them cheer wildly and then filmed them, very clever to get all those real Everton fans in the boxing movie. Here is a story and clip from the January filming at Everton, and includes what sounds like a theme song to be included in the movie.
You have to strain a little to hear it but it’s there. Creed is schedule to open on Thanksgiving 2015. (Did you know that the original Rocky opened on Thanksgiving 1976)
