CHEW ON THIS! [15 minutes]
Chew On This! is full of Philly food facts and fun fur hats, plus a visit from one of America’s greatest thinkers (and eaters) Benjamin Franklin. Part game show, part food show and all parts fun, this episode is a feast of eye candy and an earful of information.

We create our own quiz show by playing the games Dicey Dinner and Tic Tac Tofu in which host Elizabeth Fiend tests contestants’ knowledge of nutrition and food. Yes, there’s jumping up & down, there are hugs and an audience screaming out encouragement. But there are also velvet-lined pizza boxes, fuzzy dice thrown from a KFC bucket and a game board of cartoon food held by men with green hair. This show is bound to amuse as well as inform you about the value of a vegetarian diet, what color foods have the most antioxidants and much, much more.

Even special guest Ben Franklin learns a thing or two from Elizabeth while he charms her into making him a sandwich – a sandwich on a soft pretzel!

Everyone’s favorite, Vinyl Grind, one of More Fiends most popular songs. 
 
 
This next song is a WILD ride! A cut from a LIVE performance in Delaware where the band was confronted by New-Nazis. You can feel the atmosphere in the speed and anger with which the band plays! The song Fatty Humps is performed with an add-on by Julie Davids bass player. She sings of her experience with the AID’s activist group, ACT UP. Fight Back! Compare this to the recorded version of the song up-top of this post.

Sk8 B-Lo I-95 [6 minutes]
Is skateboarding a crime? It shouldn’t be, but many local governments want to make it one. Was it a blessing or a curse for Philadelphians that the marble ledges, steps and layout of LOVE PARK was the perfect environment for skating ? Was the remotely located FDR Park skate park the solution?

We trace the history of the skateboard ban in internationally renown Love Park and the rise of FDR Skate Park, a park built by & for the skaters.

Shot on location in Love Park and FDR Skate Park – featuring interviews with skaters and action footage.

This video premiered at the X-GAMES Tube Fest.
