Steven Rea is creeped out by Catfish , and he's telling his Facebook friends. An unsettling documentary about Internet intimacy and how you can pose as somebody else - lots of somebody elses - in a social network world, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman's tricky little number addresses one of the ironies of the Facebook Era: that sharing your life on a computer screen doesn't necessarily bring you closer to other people. Yup, stop the presses: There's alienation and loneliness in the land, and announcing what you had for breakfast to your Facebook pals isn't necessarily going to make things better.

Eagles fans may not like it, but the Super Bowl will still go on in New Orleans Sunday. To pay homage to the Big Easy, it seemed appropriate to share a recipe featuring one of Louisiana's finest culinary delights - catfish. At the New Wave Cafe at 3rd and Catharine, executive chef Ben McNamara serves up a catfish BLT. It's so tasty, you'll hang on to the recipe until next year's Super Bowl, when the Eagles are sure to fly high. NEW WAVE CAFE'S CATFISH BLT 2 slices toasted oatmeal bread 4 ounces catfish filet 2 ounces roasted red pepper aioli (see recipe below)

"Catfish" is the latest entry in the almost instantly tiresome genre of possibly fake documentary. Is it a moving chronicle of fluid identity in the anonymous Internet age? Is it a self-serving bag of tricks from a reality-show wannabe? I'm afraid I'm in the latter camp. "Catfish" seemed phony to me from the get-go, when it introduced its de facto subject, a New York photographer and ready-for-his-close-up camera hog name Yaniv "Nev" Schulman. In the movie's opening shot, Nev flashes about $10,000 worth of orthodontia, bats his eyelashes at the camera and tells the director (his brother Ariel)

In 2010's Catfish , Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman showed a rare intelligence about how social media gives people the illusion of intimacy while actually alienating us from one another. It was messy and ambiguous - like life. With Nerve , they repackage the same insights in a romantic thriller. It's slick and audience-friendly, like the Hollywood fantasy it sets out to be. Adapted from Jeanne Ryan's young adult novel, the film stars Emma Roberts ( Scream Queens ) as Vee, a studious, cautious high school senior from Staten Island whose one act of defiance enmeshes her in a dangerous contest cooked up on a social-media forum.

Contrary to the fears of some of the nation's more squeamish food critics, the Bill Clinton administration coming up from Arkansas represents no threat to conventional American cuisine. You know those critics' apprehensions by now: that some backwoods culinary equivalent of the Jacksonian mob will descend on the White House and Washington come January, and that Americans can expect to be humiliated by the spectacle of their leaders serving some yahoo delicacy - possum innards, perhaps - to sensitive visiting potentates.

The flathead catfish, described by a federal biologist as "one of the most serious threats to the stability of the aquatic system," has been discovered in the Schuylkill watershed. A voracious predator, the flathead has wreaked havoc on rivers in many Southeastern states. "These are the silent killers that cruise the waters and take out other native fishes," said U.S. Geological Survey biologist Jim Williams, chief of a biodiversity branch of the agency. The flathead is native to the Mississippi drainage area, which includes western Pennsylvania.

THE PLOW DRIVER'S wife made him apologize to Steve Keeley . The Fox 29 reporter became a viral sensation yesterday when he was reporting on the snowfall from Woodstown, N.J., and was pummeled with snow as the plow rolled past while still in the shot. Trouper that he was, Keeley continued his train of thought - discussing (very) former Phillie Hilly Filtcraft , of the 1942 team. But Michael Wyatt , the plow driver, didn't get off so easily. His wife, Michelle , made him call and apologize to Keeley, who assured Wyatt everything was fine.

Sometimes you eat the catfish, and sometimes the catfish falls from the sky and smacks you in the face. Lisa Lobree learned that lesson Labor Day morning when she was walking to meet her CoreFitness class near the Art Museum, heard a "rustling" in the trees, and then -. "Suddenly I was slammed by something," Lobree recalled Friday. "I was like, 'What?!' I was freaking out. " The injuries: Minor. The trauma: Immeasurable. The theory: A bird was flying with the fish in its mouth and accidentally dropped it. On her face.

To sell more gear, Cabela's simulates the Great Outdoors. Live game fish school in glass-walled aquariums, and stuffed megafauna herd overhead at the retailer's hangar-sized stores on the edge of whitetail-deer country in Hamburg, Pa., or at the heart of tax-free-shopping territory in Newark, Del. So what brings Cabela's to Chester, the shrunken industrial city at the foot of the Commodore Barry Bridge? "Your waterway there, the Delaware River, is super-good for the sport of catfishing," says Darrell Van Vactor , operations manager at Kentucky-based King Kat USA . "It's a great location, central for a lot of people," on a stretch of the Delaware that otherwise has limited public access, Eric Williams , a Cabela's marketing manager, told me. King Kat runs catfish tournaments sponsored and staffed by Cabela's.

ANYBODY FOR Catfish Bitters? No, they're not made from catfish, but by a man called Catfish, who used to prepare a blend of herbs he claimed could cure any human distress. He lived in the woods of West Virginia and was doing well until the Food and Drug Administration put a crimp in his operation. Nevertheless, William P. Betz tried the bitters and found they made a decent tonic. Betz sold the bitters, along with a collection of other herbs - like mugwort, tansy, sacred bark and more familiar items like sage, thyme and ginseng - at his store and mill at 2nd and Spring Garden streets in Northern Liberties.
