  1. Ummmm... time to move? where i live is fine. this block where my kids get the bus happens to be a bad one. i don't think it's funny. do you? do you think people getting shot is funny? what about the the people who live on that block who can't afford to move? should we make jokes about them?
  2. Still, five shots in the same leg? That's pretty good shootin'. chuck heston would be proud Five shots with no center body mass hits? That's totally lame, no pun intended. my kid's bus drops them off at this school. i am scared to death to show up late. what if i am not on time? will they be the ones who get shot? and you fuckers think it's a joke? kids getting shot is not a joke. i call 911 every two weeks because crime is rampant on this block. of course the police are never there.

  3. It's hot in Chicago too. My friend (? ) played these songs today:
  4. had a really good torta last week from cemitas puebla (3619 W. North Ave., Chicago, IL 60647, 773-772-8435) pork chop milanesa (right), al pastor (left) the main difference between a torta and a cemita is the dense sesame seed bread. the owner/chef told me that he has a local bakery bake the bread using a recipe from his father. cemitas puebla also makes their own chiptoles en adobo and uses imported queso oaxaca. the herb on the sandwich is papalo. there are better photos here.
  5. do mexicans in mexico drive around in their cars waving their banderas and honking their horns? that's what they do here in chicago. i love it.
  6. someone made this awesome video about one of my favorite places. i wish i had made this video. if you're easily offended, hate 2 live crew, or are anti-jiggly-butts don't watch it. ukzZ8jqBXEQ

    don haskins

    he started 5 black players in the '66 ncaa tournament and beat evil adolph rupp and kentucky (pat riley was on that team.) here's an especially good obit by dan wetzel, who wrote a book about haskins (which i think was made into a movie?): http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketball/ne...o&type=lgns
  8. "our song" when i was married was cocaine blues by johnny cash. Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down I went right home and I went to bed I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head
  9. damn, i will move the pics. i hope they work now.
  10. a couple weeks ago i went to mies van der rohe's farnsworth house in plano il. it's about 65 miles southwest of chicago on the the fox river. if you go give yourself 2 hours because you will get lost, like i did. it's a ten minute walk from the welcome center to the house, we saw a doe and 2 fawns along the way. the front of the house. most pictures of the house show the back, probably because of the old sugar maple (it's hurtin') in front of the house. i really really really want to have a party on this porch (it's travertine.) how did i get a hot date like this?
  11. went to sun wah (1134 W. Argyle, 773-769-1254 )on labor day with my kids, nerow, and our friend ronnie_suburban (and his family.) I've been going here somewhat regularly for the last few years, this was the best meal yet. all of these pics are ronnie's, i hope he doesn't mind me sharing them here. bejing duck. they serve the duck with bao instead of pancakes. it was awesome. they made a winter melon soup with the carcass and duck fried rice with the leftover meat. garlic ribs. i have no idea how they make these. i think they are roasted and then deep fried? my son ate half th
  12. did your family road trips involve bootlegging coors? xnRwQjTYfGI
  13. sorry, it is the epicurious one.
  14. that's the recipe i use. i've used oxtails/brisket instead of the bones and chuck. are you going to use tendon? i've always wanted to do that.
  15. who's the black private dick that's a sex machine with all the chicks? I love isaac. i think his songwriting (with david porter) will be his legacy: You Don't Know Like I Know Soul Man When Something Is Wrong with My Baby Hold On I'm Comin Wow RIP
  16. Not looking good. as kelly dwyer says: "Team USA is still suffering from the same issues that plagued the outfit during losses in 2002, 2004, and 2006. In the order of your choosing, they remain: 1. Poor half-court execution. 1. Poor help-side defense. 1. The overall shoddiness you'd expect from what amounts to a traveling team, despite their best efforts. This team (and I'm looking at you, Carmelo) just turns its head too much. These guys aren't used to watching for back-picks and defending cuts to the front of the hoop. Back-door screens still kill Team USA, and thou
  17. my favorite pickling book i have made about 30 of the recipes, and they are all good. my garden got trashed by a tornado last night, i hope i have some vegetables left to can.
  18. in chicago: tony's finer foods 3607 w. fullerton
  19. i love the negro league uniforms (detroit stars vs. chicago american giants)

    SPOILER That was a great fight. Wow. Cotto was outboxing him at the beginning (I had it 7-3 cotto after the 10th) but Margarito was relentless. He has an all-time great marvinhagleresque chin. Cotto was nailing him with hard shots that would break bones on other guys. He never stopped coming forward. Cotto will be back. he just has to stay away from guys who are much bigger than him.

    I think the odds on this fight are way off. cotto is a -240 favorite (5:2). if i was a gambler i'd definitely be putting money on margarito. I still think cotto will win. I hope we get the salsa vs mariachi ringwalks.
  22. I have a bad feeling about this team. when colangelo took over the program he said they were going to make the players try out etc. well, we ended up with the same group of mis-matched superstars. jason kidd starting at point? he's not even top-10 in the nba. there are only 3 big men. howard, boozer, bosh. i guess lebron is going to play the 4. what happens if one of these guys gets hurt? why isn't tyson chandler on the roster? he's good defensively, doesn't need the ball, and with the international rules him and paul would have 4 alley-oops per game. there's a game vs canada at
