YouTube user “rat king” has put together this funny supercut video of all the mentions of the phrase “goddamn it!” in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But is he sure he got all of them?
“If you’re here to tell me I missed one, I will jam you into next week,” he says in the video description.
I’ll take your word for it. Check out the video above.
Local dancer and choreographer—and one of our LGBT Six-Word memoirists—Kemar Jewel just tweeted us this fab video of him and some fellow dancers voguing all over SEPTA.
He starts at Walnut and Locust on the Broad Street Line and manages to vogue all over town—in the train cars, in subway corridors, on steps—everywhere. He tells me they shot at noon one day, but somehow he managed to film it without having any passengers in the way. “Just know it was a lot of planning, patience, and prayer.”
In a statement to Huffington Post, he says he did the video to show that “anywhere can be a performance area. … I am a member of Philadelphia’s Black Gay Ballroom Scene and I wanted to showcase all of its creativity and talent. Also, since voguing and the Ballroom Scene is an ‘underground scene,’ why not put it underground, literally!”
Check out the video above, and keep in mind that it contains language that may be offensive to some viewers.
I wanted to make sure to post this way before lunch. Beware: It’s totally gross, but it’s also kind of fascinating at the same time. The Academy of Natural Sciences dipped a bunch of hissing Madagascar cockroaches and maggots in paint and let them take off across the canvas to create their own vibrant, abstract masterpieces. The whole thing is caught on tape (above) and serves to highlight the Academy’s upcoming Bug Fest, taking place this Saturday and Sunday, August 9th and 10th. The weekend event is a chance for the museum to show off its immense bug collection. There will be cockroach races, a bug parade, and insect-centric craft booths. Get the full lineup here.
After you’re done debating whether to go with the “Amaro” or “Sierra” filter on your next #tbt post, we’ve got some ultimate throwback footage for you that requires absolutely #nofilter. The Philadelphia Department of Records (PDR) has released a series of vintage Philly videos that chronicle the city as far back as the 1940s.

Billy Cavallo in Andrew Christian’s latest viral video, “Gay & Lucky.”
A few months ago, Gayborhood bartender Billy Cavallo jetted out to L.A. to fulfill one of his requirements as winner of 2013’s Most Original Stoli Guy competition: to film an Andrew Christian video. (You can watch that here.) While he was there, however, filmmakers had him star in another spot that veered away from the underwear retailer’s typical bulge-tastic ads in favor of something a little more heartwarming.

It’s rather fitting that right after the glut of the Academy Awards, Philly DoGooder II offers an award show where what you’ve done trumps what you were.

Each entrant was paired with a filmmaker to document its work over the year. Check out the video finalists here. Awards will be doled out at a ceremony on March 12th.

Two years ago today the world lost a superstar when Whitney Houston died, and the LGBT community lost a veritable gay icon. Today, we pay tribute to the diva the best way we know how: With a roundup of drag queens performing some of her greatest hits. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
I found some gems while gathering the clips, including RuPaul’s Drag Race diva Morgan McMichaels taking on Whitney’s mammoth hit “I Will Always Love you,” Moltyn Decadence’s slaying performance of “I’m Every Woman,” and a vintage local video of Philly’s Mimi Imfurst, Cherry Pop, Brenda Dharling and others doing “The Greatest Love Of All” at the now defunct Q-Lounge.
