Forget Anakin Skywalker and the windy solemnities of The Phantom Menace. Here at last, and in one movie, is both a true space icon and answers to the questions that have baffled science for years: What is Gonzo and where does he come from? As Muppets From Space confirms, our suspicions were right all along. Gonzo isn't a cross between a turkey and a chicken, he's a creature not of this earth. You could make the same argument about any of the more spaced-out Muppets, but it's a happy choice to move Gonzo to the center of the action.

Excerpts from Thursday's Ask Gonzo chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Comment from Josh B.: Are we seriously worried about wasting "the prime years" of a guy who's looked like a career backup in almost every start he's made? Gonzo: I'm not, and I don't think the Eagles are, either. But if you're Kevin Kolb you have to get the hell out of here if you have any shot at becoming a starter. I watched The Count of Monte Cristo again today (the newer one with Jim Caviezel, not the '70s version)

Here is an excerpt from Thursday's fantasy football chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Comment from dave: I've got Vernon Davis on a bye this week and need to add a TE. I have [Visanthe] Shiancoe vs the Cardinals, [Kellen] Winslow Jr vs the Falcons, or Ben Watson vs the Pats as my options. Who should I pick up? Gonzo: I like Shiancoe best. He was [Brett] Favre's only real option before Moss, and he's Favre's only real option now that Moss is gone. Comment from BK:  Who do you think is the better play this week at QB, Michael Vick or Big Ben [Roethlisberger]

While wondering how I forgot John Chaney and Randall Cunningham in my list of entertaining Philly sports people, it's time to empty out the mailbag . . . Dave, You're right. Leaving Randall and his gold-tipped shoelaces off the list was a huge omission. That was a complete brain lock on my part. I briefly considered Seth Joyner and Jerome Brown. Both were hugely entertaining, but the list was designed more as a lark than a comprehensive almanac of the weird. Re: Five.

Here is a partial transcript from Thursday's Ask Gonzo chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Comment from matt: Eagles record? Gonzo: 9-7. No playoffs. We get into the record a little more in [Friday's] You Talkin' To Me. Be sure to buy The Inquirer. It's how you know. Comment from Guest: Can [Vance] Worley be any worse than [Kyle] Kendrick? And who's winning the division? And if the Phils don't, can they win the WS? Gonzo: Probably not, but KK is a fifth starter for a reason.

Comment from Brett: Dwayne Bowe before your last chat: 9 rec 152 yds and 1 td. Last two weeks (since the chat): 9 rec 189 yds, 2 td. His next 6 games: Bills, Raiders, Broncos, Cards, Seahawks, Broncos. He is a guy you now want on your team, right? Gonzo: Yes, he's a guy you want on your team. Unless he's a guy you already had on your team but dropped right before he started producing. I have a, uh, friend who got rid of Bowe. Let's call him Johnzalez. Anyway, Johnzalez dropped him a while back and has spent the last few weeks cursing the heavens and drowning his sorrows in Four Loko.

Here is a partial transcript from Thursday's fantasy football chat with columnist John Gonzalez on Philly.com: Comment from Frank: What should I do with Vincent Jackson? Is he going to play this year? Should I hold on to him? Gonzo: Who knows? The Chargers are trying to figure out the same thing. I love Vincent Jackson. He has big-time talent. But he's not going to do you any good if he doesn't get on the field. If you can unload him at a reasonable price, I'd make the move.

"Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism. "   - Hunter S. Thompson By Jared Feldschreiber There has been much undeserved ridicule heaped upon Sean Penn over the past decade. Most recently, Rush Limbaugh deemed Penn's seven-hour interview and feature story in Rolling Stone with drug lord Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera - better known as "El Chapo" - as merely "two idiots who were meant for each other.

PLANNING holiday baking? Then you're probably all too aware that many people (family members?) are ditching eggs for various reasons. For some it's allergies, for some the massive cholesterol, for others the massive cruelty, for still others the government/industry dirty tricks to squelch egg-free competition. And let's not forget the increased costs from bird flu, or the fact that a surprising number of folks just don't like the taste of eggs. Yet, eggless baking options have been less than perfect, with different substitutions for different functions.

Way back in another time (1987 to be exact), Barry Levinson directed Robin Williams in Good Morning, Vietnam , in which a famous comedian does his trademark shtick in the midst of a far-off conflagration - bullets flying, convoys exploding all around. It was a star vehicle built just right for Williams. Everything worked: the manic monologues, the soulful 1960s soundtrack, the stick-it-to-the-man mentality, and a character humanized by the war, by the wartorn. Cut to 2015, and Levinson's directing credit is affixed to Rock the Kasbah , in which a famous comic actor does his trademark shtick in the midst of a far-off conflagration - bullets flying, convoys exploding all around.

I've always been addicted to garage sales and flea markets, but it turns out they were gateway drugs. Now I'm hooked on auctions. We begin a year ago, when I noticed there was an antiques auction in my neighborhood and I stopped by. I'm no antiques expert, but I like old things. Like me. So I walked into the auction, took a seat, and watched as the auctioneer showed slides of great furniture. Most of it was from the Philadelphia area, circa 1800s. People made bids by raising white cards, and when the bidding stopped, the prices weren't high at all. Surprise ending, right?

AS SPORTS TEAMS GO, the Eagles are known to reporters as being the organization that complains the most about coverage and threatens to block access, or otherwise intimidate press outlets. The newest example of this could be the team's most brazen and apparently sucessful campaign of intimidation thus far. Sources say that the Eagles front office approached Comcast SportsNet and said that the team didn't want John Gonzalez covering the team in any fashion. Gonzalez, who left the Inquirer for CSNPhilly.com over the summer, hasn't said a word about the team on the website, or posted about the Eagles on Twitter, where his musings have included football games such as Temple/Penn State coverage.

The following is an excerpt from Ask Gonzo, a weekly chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez There's nothing like a good old-fashioned beef, even if methods employed aren't exactly traditional. It would be better if the ongoing argument between LeSean McCoy and the New York Giants unfolded in person or on the field, but that will happen soon enough. In the interim, a public Twitter spat - which has since spilled over into the mainstream media - will do just fine.

Excerpts from the weekly Ask Gonzo chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Big, breaking news coming from the Phils: With Chase Utley on the mend, the Fightin's have altered their (food) roster and brought in Tastykakes. This season at Citizen's Bank Park, you'll be able to buy Butterscotch Krimpets, chocolate cupcakes, sugar-free snacks and, my favorite, Kandy Kakes. It's a mind-blowing move. I think we can all agree that if Utley were healthy, this wouldn't have happened.
