Chocolate Cherry DDP

Diet Dr. Pepper
Limited Edition Cherry Chocolate
This is a really good soda.  Dr. Pepper always had a bit of a cherry flavor.  The chocolate is creamy, smooth and not overly sweet.  I hope they make this a permanent addition to the lineup.

I Wonder What They Sell

The Video Game Store
South Main Street - Wilkes-Barre, PA
It may not have the most creative name in the world, but it's the best place to go if you want to pick up some games, music or movies at a good price.  Everything they sell is pre-owned and guaranteed, and their stock ranges from pre-Atari 2600 to current consoles.

See You In The Funny Pages

Phanatic Phollies
The Philadelphia Inquirer (1978)
The Phillie Phanatic is the greatest mascot in the history of professional sports.  He made his debut 30 years ago today before a Phillies game at Veterans Stadium against the Chicago Cubs.  One year later, artist Don Vannozzi created a comic strip featuring the beloved flightless bird which was published in The Philadelphia Inquirer throughout the 1979 season.

In honor of his three decades in Philadelphia, here is a collection of those newspaper comics.

Ape Law 29:6

Planet Of The Apes
20th Century Fox (1968)
One of the greatest movies ever filmed was released nationwide 40 years ago today.  I feel that it may be difficult for someone to fully appreciate how excellent this movie is today because it's almost impossible to avoid all of the parodies and references made to it, but it really is a fantastic story.

In honor of it's 40th birthday, here is the twenty-ninth scroll, sixth verse of Ape Law that Cornelius shared with George Taylor at the end of the film:

“Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn.
Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed.
Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land.
Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours.
Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.”
