The Late Movies: Best of Live Aid

In my life off the Internet, I live in Philadelphia, where I was born and raised. My city's got a lot of history: the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the site of the first department store and the first post office in the U.S., the birthplace of awesome things like Bill Cosby, Kevin Bacon and the American flag. In 1985, it was also one of the sites of Live Aid. Yesterday, Jay-Z came to Philly to announce Made in America, a big Labor Day music festival that supposedly will rival Live Aid in the caliber of artists coming to my fine city. So, naturally, I spent the day watching Live Aid videos. And now you can too.
