Hopeless Records founder Louis Posen looks back on 25 years of hard work, good times and punk rock

Hopeless Records started as a mere hobby for Los Angeles native Louis Posen, but it has turned into 25 years of blood, sweat and a whole lot of fun and punk rock music. Back in the early ’90s, Posen was a film student at Cal State Northridge and had just shot a music video for punk rock band NOFX when he was introduced to Huntington Beach band Guttermouth. The group basically dared Posen to put out its latest 7-inch, even though his only knowledge of the business side of music came from a book h...

Wednesday Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - Think there were some teams wondering if Philadelphia would be as married to Nolan Patrick now that Ron Hextall is no longer running the show. Current GM Chuck Fletcher stood up for him prior to the player ending a 24-game goalless drought Monday night. It is hard to find big, right-shot centres, and Fletcher recognizes that. - A number of contenders were liking how many teams were giving up on the season, hoping it meant a buyers’ market as some...

The Other Two: Morin, Myers and the Future of the Flyers’ Defense

A few seasons ago, the Flyers fan mantra was: “The defense may be a patchwork now, but in a few years, watch out!” Sometime in the future, they held, a deep arsenal of unique Flyers defensive prospects would vault the team back to relevance and contention. Former general manager Ron Hextall and his predecessor (slash current team president) Paul Holmgren brought in half of the much-hyped bunch. Holmgren selected Shayne Gostisbehere in the third round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft before grabbing S...

Can't win without him? Lifeless Wolves proved Jimmy Butler right

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where sometimes "it's just one game" doesn't apply. Let's get to it: *The Timberwolves are 17-14 since the 4-9 start that preceded the Jimmy Butler trade to Philadelphia, so in a broad sense they have proved they can win without him. But in that 14th loss, a 149-107 embarrassment Tuesday in Philadelphia in the first meeting between the teams since the trade, Minnesota — and particularly its young core players — seemed intent on proving Butler right...

Flyers’ Latest Moves Could Mean More to Come

It’s past the halfway point of the National Hockey League season and the Philadelphia Flyers are going nowhere fast. Having only won two out of their last 10 games and in last place in the Metropolitan Division, hopes of postseason play are rapidly disappearing. So, with the season all but lost, are big changes on the way for Philadelphia’s roster? Signs of Bigger Changes?

Morning Line- Jim Souhan On The Minnesota Wild

The Wild is back to its teasing, taunting ways, following an unpredictably strong stretch of hockey with unsightly losses to Detroit and Philadelphia. The Wild are hanging around the fringes of the wild-card playoff race without inspiring much hope that they could accomplish much should they make the postseason. They are old. They have large amounts of money committed to older players. They are paying $3 million or more to 11 players on the current roster. -Jim Souhan of the Star Tri...

The tortures of adapting Samuel Richardson’s ‘Pamela’

The term “bestseller” is a bit of a stretch for the eighteenth century, when books were expensive (though widely shared), and information about print-runs is hard to come by. But if any early novel deserves the title, it’s Samuel Richardson’s Pamela, which on publication in 1740 rapidly caught the imagination of Britain, Europe, and indeed America (the Philadelphia printing by Benjamin Franklin was the first unabridged American edition of any novel).The author of this innovative novel was a lead...

Saints have been super at their home in playoffs, and it started against the Rams

It all started against the Rams, not that anyone from the organization is around to remember it. That’s because it was Dec. 2000 when the New Orleans Saints beat the then-St. Louis Rams in a wild-card-round playoff game at the Superdome. Current Rams coach Sean McVay had yet to turn 14. The Saints edged the Rams 31-28 that day and started a seven-game, 18-year streak of consecutive home playoff victories, one that will be tested when McVay and the Rams visit the Superdome on Sunday for the NFC c...

Daddy’s Hangout NFL 2019 Conference Championships Prediction

We’re down to the Final Four of the NFL. In the AFC, we have the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the defending conference champs, New England Patriots. While in the NFC, we have the New Orleans Saints hosting the Los Angeles Rams. My picks from last week had me guessing three out of the four teams correctly. My only blemish was thinking the Chargers would go to Foxboro and upset the Patriots. As we saw, New England dominated the game from the beginning. Tom Brady was as efficient as ever throwing f...

Signs you’re Philadelphian

Wherever they are in the world, Philadelphians stick out like sore thumbs — the snarky tone, the accent, and the undying love for our city give us away every time. A source of pride for all who hail from the City of Brotherly Love, here are 10 dead giveaways that you’re from Philly. 1. Everything you own just happens to be Eagles green.

'Room to Dream', in which David Lynch Has a Conversation with His Own Biography

Always keen to do things his own way, filmmaker David Lynch presents Room to Dream as "a person having a conversation with his own biography." Chapters of conventional biography, written by journalist Kristine McKenna, alternate with chapters of reflections by Lynch himself. This structure promises a deconstruction of a conventional biography, but this unconventional choice does little to advance the narrative. For one reason, any inconsistencies Lynch notes with McKenna's work are small. For ex...
