    The city that gave us Barack Obama
  1. I remembered my password. The simplest version of a password that's gotten very complex, sort of like this tiny corner of the Internet. I suspect the board software works much better these days.
  2. Thanks! I was surprised that I still had an account :/ I'll try it.
  3. So I haven't logged in here for a while. I now have an android tablet that feels surgically attached, and an iPhone. Tapatalk, yes or no, and for either, neither or both?
  4. Summer Teeth at Starbucks on Roscoe in Roscoe Village just now. Sweet Saturday morning.
  5. Wow. I just happened to check in on the RTT last night for the first time in several months. A wistful sadness enveloped me as I remembered all the crazy fun times we had in there -- before it was banished to ummville and after. Jess the pics you've posted lately on FB would have been at home there. End of an era.
  6. I believe at least two of these are XRT concerts for the kids -- bring an unwrapped toy. These shows are not planned (or at least announced) that far in advance.
  7. Finally figured out that the start of Art of Almost sounds like a butt dial.
  8. You know, it would be so much easier if we just ranked them chronologically, like the old days.
  9. Not a big fan of trying this, but here goes. I'm excluding TWL because I haven't heard it enough yet to slot it. Ranking the studio records as they were recorded ST AGIB YHF SBS BT MMA I/II AM W(TA) Now for laughs, I'll rank then by how much I like the songs as played live by the current line-up AGIB YHF (interchangable with AGIB) ST SBS BT MMA I/II AM -- love Too Far Apart live, but that's kinda it WTA -- One Wing is the only song I hope makes it into the regular rotation on their upcoming tours
  10. Because everyone has their own opinion?
  11. I like it. A lot. A couple of the songs I didn't quite get on the first listen hit me pretty good the second time through. Rising Red Lung is still kind of a question but I am sure it will get there. Art of Almost.... holy crap cannot wait to hear it live. I can't wait to hear a higher bitrate and on better quality speakers.
  12. Nice to see all the hockey love on here. I think it's easily the most exciting sport today. When it is played at its highest level, and you have a team in the hunt, it's almost excruciating to watch it's so exciting. I've watched maybe 20 playoff games this year without the 'hawks, and they are crazy delicious. And my team? Any team but VAN.
  13. I was lucky. I quit only one time. My last cigarette (Kool Mild) was somewhere around 4 am January 1, 1986 at what is now the abandoned Purple Hotel on Touhy. No one believed I could do it; I was 26. I chewed/played with a toothpick for the first couple weeks when I was working (at a bar). I found that if I could get through the situation just once, when/where I normally smoked, I craved it less the next time I encountered that situation. Things like driving, talking on the phone, working, after class or a movie, after sex. Eventually I stopped thinking about it -- took maybe 6 months. I am now almost at my 25 year anniversary -- imagine that. And I hate when people smoke around me. Best thing to ever happen is smoke free bars/restaurants/buildings. You CAN do it, Oman. One situation at a time.
  14. I can't remember if I've told this story before, but here it is. My husband "met" her in Hollywood in the '70s. He was on his way to a bar in the late afternoon, and there just happened to be filming on the same street. Liz was being filmed getting out of a car and then talking to someone on the sidewalk. My husband needed to cross the street to get to the bar, so he asked one of the assistant directors or someone to let him know when it was OK to cross. When he got the thumbs up, he began to cross, but just then, Liz turned around and headed right for him. Even though the scene was over, she was still "on" so when they crossed paths near enough that he could have touched her, she looked right at him and said "Disappear". So he did.
  15. Yeah, the misleading "union protests" label on the b-roll makes it look like it's WI now, but it isn't. I don't think there is a bottom to the depths to which they will sink.
