My name is Tanya
I live on the second floor
If you hear something late at night
It's just me doing my new P90 workout plan

It is a really terrible song!

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

That.... it was just so terrible!!

Pita Malört (Je55e), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm honestly fascinated by how terrible it is.

two overweight dachshunds with three eyes (La Lechera), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

I immediately blamed Rahm.

You expect these things to be not-great, but that was JUST AWFUL!

I was really hoping that the cut off word in the URL was "awesome" (chicago-has-a-new-tourism-anthem-and-its-beyond-aw,73085/) but I think the person actually wrote "it's just aw,723[095u12!!"

that was barf

I mean "Go Cubs Go" is about as terrible but it came from a terrible time and it should be a fucking warning to never be so terrible again.

;__;

fucking hippie jam bands

Silky Slim (dan m), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

talk about misnomers too -- there is nothing hippie or jammy about that song whatsoever

two overweight dachshunds with three eyes (La Lechera), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

That is terrible. Maybe they want to cut down on tourism this year?

I started reading Electric Eden on the plane yesterday and I can already tell this is going to make me want to buy a lot of records.

check spotify before you spend too much -- lotsa stuff there, esp classical composers

two overweight dachshunds with three eyes (La Lechera), Thursday, 26 April 2012 20:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah, that'll be my first stop. I was wishing I could've accessed it while I was on my flight to listen as I read. Really great stuff so far, but I've only just now gotten to the introduction of Lomax to the story.

Hey dudes, what's up?

Jeff, Friday, 27 April 2012 12:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

I had a dream about Mayor Rahm last night. We were at a party and he got too drunk and I was trying to help him call his goons to pick him up, and he wanted to go in the kitchen and eat so I took him there then went to collect his Blackberry and his jacket and tie that he'd taken off when he was dancing. I was trying to think of a way to ask him to help me get a job when my alarm went off.

hi guys. i feel pretty good today after a week of feeling crabby and irritable (primarily due to shitty sleep)

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 27 April 2012 15:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hi n/a. Congratulations.

Slow day at work. Anyone want to lunch with me? I am pretty sure that I can be in the Loop at almost any time.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Friday, 27 April 2012 15:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

i could lunch but not til 1:30 which usually seems too late for everyone else. can't switch my schedule around today, unfortunately.

having to take care of drunk rahm in a dream seems tiring

mh, Friday, 27 April 2012 16:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think I preferred Daley to Rahm. Both are pushy dicks, but Rahm is more actively so.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Friday, 27 April 2012 16:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

Gonna have to agree with that aside from my longstanding opposition to nepotism in politics.

It was! He was a mess. Leaning on me to stand up and we had to keep stopping so people could take pictures.

I wish it were February and we were having a huge blizzard.

Haha I just saw the most awesome walk of shame guy slink off the El at Belmont. 20-something, looked like shit and was wearing a beer-stained t-shirt, jeans, and flip flops. When the train pulled in, he was leaning against the door with his eyes shut. LOL

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Saturday, 28 April 2012 13:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

R had a similar guy on her train to work recently. Said he passed out and half fell down, people were freaking out and calling the train operator trying to get them to stop but it was really obvious the kid was still drunk from the night before, reeking of booze etc.

Alternative titles for the Central Lake View video:

"We aren't kidding when we say Chicago is really segregated."

Also, TS: Central Lake View song v. "Chicago"

Which hotel did you end up at?

caro's johnson (Eazy), Sunday, 29 April 2012 06:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

Damn, I was near Jake's at 8 but just saw this now.

caro's johnson (Eazy), Sunday, 29 April 2012 06:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

We were never really at Jake's. I dragged the Erica, the husband, and the 'rents to the Billy Goat below Michigan and Wacker. You know... the real one.

We drank until Erica's husband loosened up a bit, which is a good bit of drinking.

Eazy - the Conrad. It is pretty nice!

wolf kabob (ENBB), Sunday, 29 April 2012 15:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

Great location -- puts you in the middle of things. The Jazz Record Mart is about two blocks away, very fun place to browse a bit.

caro's johnson (Eazy), Sunday, 29 April 2012 16:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah. It is p great.

The mayor’s casual-look upgrade included a laid-back meeting at his City Hall office. That’s where personal denim adviser, David Shelist, owner of popular jeans boutique The Denim Lounge, took Emanuel’s measurements for the perfect casual fit.

I think Rahm having a 31" inseam is vanity sizing. No way dude is that tall.

Jeff, Monday, 30 April 2012 13:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

everything about that guy is phony
i should know, considering my background and continued high standing in the denim advisory industry.
