The Great Western Expansion Photo Recap

Posted on September 8, 2012

For the third time in three years, I recently traveled westward to Los Angeles traversing the entire width of the country beginning in Philadelphia. This particular trip was a bit different in that there was no planned return to the East Coast so my approach to living in LA has been considerably different. That being said, the trip itself is always incredible and as I am becoming a seasoned veteran of the great American road trip, I’m beginning to learn which parts have the most interesting stops along the way. I’ve stopped at the same Whole Foods in Oklahoma City three years in a row. I’ve stopped at the same Cracker Barrel near Flagstaff for two years as I have with the same gas…

In Support Of Portable’s “Curator’s Conference”

Posted on August 16, 2012

Portable (one of the most important online curator’s of video pertaining to the arts, culture, fashion, and more) has announced their “Curator’s Conference” in New York City on September 5th, 2012 and we couldn’t be more excited to be in attendance. I’m no conventioneer, I’ve never been to a conference before, but something tells me this is going to be a little different than your typical workweek “vacation”. It’s a one day event held in the Walter Reade Theatre at the Lincoln Center featuring nine thought leaders from within the creative industry ranging from filmmakers to thought provokers all with one thing in common: presenting highly curated content. Here’s Portable’s official release about the event: The Curators Conference is a day long event featuring…

We’re Expanding!

Posted on August 9, 2012

It’s official. Many of you are already aware but on Saturday morning I will be packing up the vehicle and permanently relocating from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. It’s a decision I made years ago and the timing has finally proved right for my girlfriend and I to make it our new home. The move will take a little over a week (we’re taking our time: it’s a long drive) but we’ll be up and fully operational by the end of the month. We couldn’t be more excited to explore another side of the country and bring you even more diverse programming. Steve, the ever-talented creative director of The American Classic, will still be here in Philadelphia maintaing our East Coast perspectives, so not to worry: there will…

Field Trip: Trove General Store in Paoli, PA.

Posted on July 31, 2012

Ever heard of Paoli, PA? It’s a little town on the main line heading out from Philadelphia wedged into a block of towns that overlap into each other, each one somewhat indistinguishable from the last. At least that was my impression before we spent some time chatting with Foster & Charlotte, owners of the fine Trove General Store situated right in the middle of town. Let me clarify that “town” refers to a series of shopping centers and subdivisions situated off of the main drag, Lancaster Ave. The place isn’t rural; it certainly has a suburban feel to it. But stepping inside the shop immediately lets you know that these guys mean business in selling their extremely high quality goods and you shouldn’t be…
