used books

Anybody know of a place in the city to donate (or even sell) used books, mostly but not all fantasy or science fiction, many of them oldish, and many of them kind of obscure? The dump in my hometown in MA has a "library" where you can leave and take books freely, and I was wondering if there was anything like that around here.

My first thought was Books Through Bars, but their website says they don't want genre fiction. I tried selling some books in West Philly a few years ago and had a bad experience, so I'm leery of lugging them out to bookstores unless there's a place nearby that I'm fairly sure will take them.

Temple Cats!

I started a rescue called Temple Cats to help save the stray and abandoned cats around Temple University - and there are probably hundreds of them, so it's a big job! If you can help in any way (fostering, donating, trapping, advertising, marketing) please check out our website and let me know! And spread the word! www.temple-cats.org

Please help! :)

Hi guys!

So, I just encountered a crisis. One of my roommates has backed out on me and my other roommate last minute. We have already signed our lease and put in our deposit and don't want to lose the house! It's a gorgeous three-bedroom apartment in Manayunk and rent is at $525 plus utilities. We have a full backyard, finished basement, washer/dryer, dishwasher and keggerator! We are both females and students at Saint Joes just looking for someone laid-back and easy to live with. If anyone knows someone who is in need of a room or housing, please let me know! Our lease starts on August 15th and we would love to find someone ASAP! Thanks!!

Apartment/townhome rentals in the Bensalem area?

If this isn't the right place to ask this, let me know and I'll delete it.
In a few months, my boyfriend and I will be looking for an apartment or townhouse (to rent). He's from Bensalem and wants to stay in the general area, which I'm fine with, but neither of us know too much about rentals in that area. We're looking in the price range of $1000/month or less and, like I said, we want to stay in or close to Bensalem. What I need are recommendations, places to stay away from, etc.. possibly even a helpful realtor in the area that deals with rentals. I'm googling like crazy but I really want some personal experiences. I'd appreciate anything that might be useful in our search for a place to live. Thanks so much :-)

Philadelphia Film Festival and CineFest 09

Philadelphia Film Festival and CineFest 09   is looking for volunteers.

            Dear Volunteers,

            I would like to invite you to join a new chapter in the ever-growing industry of film festival production, here in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Cinema Alliance, in conjunction with the Philadelphia Film Society, is embarking on a film festival collaboration that we hope you will all be eager to support! 
The Philadelphia Film Festival and CineFest 09 will be held this spring, March 26 through April 6, 2009 and feature over 220 films from over 40 countries, international guests, artistic achievement awards, and special events. As Director of Operations of CineFest 09 and well-versed in volunteer coordination for other city festivals, it would be my pleasure to ensure that you, as a volunteer, enjoy your experience as we collectively shape this endeavor to be a focal point for cinephiles on an international level.  I look forward to sharing the details of this new venture with you at our upcoming volunteer training sessions! Take a look at the following material for detailed information on the many ways you can support the festival as a volunteer.
Are you a new volunteer or not sure how you would like to get involved? Come to one of the general training sessions to learn more about the Festival and the roles volunteers play. You may begin to sign up for shifts following the training.

If you are a former Festival volunteer, choose the training session that applies to your position of interest (don’t forget to RSVP). Former Managers and Box Office Personnel MUST attend a training session. All former volunteers may begin to sign up for shifts after reviewing the volunteer schedule posted on our festival’s website, www.phillycinema.org, beginning Friday, March 6th, 2009.
Each shift you sign up for as a volunteer, will earn you a complimentary festival film ticket (restrictions apply). Please be sure that you DO NOT schedule a volunteer shift during any film screening that you would like to attend. And don’t forget: You always have more fun with a friend, so spread the word!

so, i may be taking a job in philly. i would be completely new to the area and have no concept of location and such. could anyone give me any idea of what areas would be good to live in and which ones to stay away from. when i say stay away, i mean YOU wouldn't want to live there and you probably wouldn't visit friends there. On another note, what's the local average wage there? thanks in advance!

Chiropractor recommedation?

I recently moved here from San Diego and unfortunately need to find a new chiropractor sooner then I had hoped. I need a chiropractor who takes Blue Cross, does manual adjustments (I can be hard to adjust, so they need to be fairly strong), and uses a drop table; preferably in the West Chester area (although I am willing to drive a bit).

Thanks in advance!

Massage studios / clinics

Looking to get a gift cert for someone for a massage or massages and wondering if you guys have recommendations? I have always heard about the massage school on Market Street which I found online here (http://massagearts.com/clinic.html) but I dont know anything about the place. Is it nice inside? Does it have a spa feel?
Also I have seen there is a massage clinic that opened up on 3rd Street last summer/fall. I think it is just called "Old City Massage Clinic" or something like that. Has anyone been there that can tell me how it is?
Looking for an affordable place because I'd like to be able to give a gift cert for several massages... but if I need to I will just go high end so he has a good experience.
Thanks in advance!!

"Scythian's enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses."
- The Washington Post

What are your New Year's Eve Plans? Scythian is throwing a fantastic party in Philadelphia...

It’s A Mad, Mad, Masquerade New Year’s Ball

A 135 year old mansion, 6 hours, 2 bands, 1 magician, a DJ, a ghost and an open bar will join forces to throw the grandest New Year's party this side of the Atlantis. After a two year hiatus from the hallowed grounds of our country's birthplace, Scythian returns to the Historic (and Haunted?) Stotesbury Mansion at Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia - on the heels of a World Series Pennant and the presidential election. This year's event will be a more intimate affair with only 250 tickets being sold. Expect to be wowed and awed by the beauty of the mansion and the exploits of Scythian and other entertainers. And don't forget the important part: open bar and heavy hor d'oerves. As usual, make sure to wear a classy masquerade costume and mask. And to honor that creative streak we know you all have - make sure to stay for January 1st and soak up the famous Philadelphia Mummer's Parade, the Mardi Gras of the North.

WHAT: Mad, Mad Masquerade New Year's Ball with your host, SCYTHIAN!
A 19th century mansion with 4 levels of grace and elegance
Open bar all night and gourmet heavy hors d'oeuvres
World class magician Nick Locapo
WHERE: The Historic Stotesbury Mansion at Rittenhouse Square
1923 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA
WHEN: December 31, 2008 - 8pm to 2am
WHO: You!

So you are encouraged to jump on Scythian's website for a grand tour. http://www.scythianmusic.com/NewYears2008/page2.html They've set up an entire website to give you an idea of the grandness of the whole affair. Looking forward to ringing in the New Year in preposterous style with you!

PAWS takes in over 30,000 animals a year. Yesterday alone we received 54 cats - and only had about 12 adoptions. We need to amp up our adoption rates, now! Spread the word! There are hundreds of beautiful, adoptable cats and dogs at PAWS! Here's just a sample of some of the beautiful animals who need homes. Please, cross-post this and spread the word. The animals need you!

Pictures and Descriptions of Animals HereCollapse )


IF YOU CAN FOSTER OR ADOPT AN ANIMAL: Come to the shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) immediately. A staff person or foster care volunteer will be thrilled to help you find the right animal(s) for you to take into safety. Foster care and adoption hours are 11 am to 6 pm every day of the week.

Directions to the shelter are available here: http://phillypaws.org/Directions/default.asp

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a donor-funded division of the Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Association (PACCA) dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals. Taking in nearly 30,000 animals each year, PAWS is dedicated to making Philadelphia a city in which all healthy and treatable animals are guaranteed a home. Supporting PAWS helps fund lifesaving initiatives including adoption and foster care programs, spay and neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and other community-based programming, all of which help reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia's animals.
