Researchers track evolution of Philly's odd accent
Fox News - over 5 years
Will Philly no longer be a place where residents drink wooder and root for the Iggles? Gid eowt! A University of Pennsylvania linguistics professor says the Southern-inflected sound of the Philadelphia dialect is moving toward a more Northern accent. Some of Philly's trademark twangy, elongated vowel sounds are becoming less so, though others are getting stronger. "Certain changes have continued in the same direction over 100 years and everybody's doing it," said Bill Labov, who has studied the Philadelphia accent since 1971 and recorded hundreds of native speakers born between 1888 and 1992 and living in dozens of neighborhoods. "It doesn't make a difference if you come from Port Richmond or Kensington or South Philadelphia." With apologies to comedian Jeff Foxworthy, you might be a Philadelphian if: you say beggle (bagel), wooder (water), tal (towel), beyoodeeful (beautiful), dennis (dentist) or Fit Shtreet (Fifth Street). ...

Sheryl Crow Announces Brain Tumor Diagnosis
Business Insider - over 6 years
Sheryl Crow, who battled breast cancer six years ago, announced last night that she has a benign common form of a brain tumor called a meningioma. "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor," Crow, 50, told Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Doug Elfman. "And I was, like, 'See? I knew there was something wrong,'" Crow continued casually. "I haven't really talked about it...But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit." Crow made headlines last month when she forgot the words to her hit song “Soak Up the Sun” while performing in Florida. “I’m 50, what can I say? My brain’s gone to s--t,” she said to the audience at the time. A rep for Crow told E! Online, "Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI ... she has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the [Vegas] interview. It was not meant to alar...

Tyler, The Creator Targets The Wanted On Punk’d
MTV News - over 6 years
By Andrés Marín Tyler, the Creator was recently Punk’d by Jackass’ Bam Margera and this week the Odd Future frontman made a second appearance to return the favor. Tyler set up an elaborate plan to punk British band The Wanted,  having them accused of kidnapping a little girl. (Watch the successful prank above).  During Tyler's first appearance, he was brought to a faux Tony Hawk Foundation event and was asked to turn on the grill to heat up some tacos. He then autographed the taco truck next to other celebrities’ signature, to be auctioned for charity. A couple minutes later, the truck blew up and a man caught on fire. Tyler pulled out his phone to take some pictures of the commotion and then took a very high leap into a pick-up truck, as if protecting himself from the flaming truck. Even though he shocked, Tyler kept on a nervous smile throughout the fiasco. “As long as he is alive I can get another truck,” said the Odd Future leader. Wonder what else could have happened, hav...
