Everybody in the Club Gettin' Shot: Father's Newest Video

I'm slightly late to the party on this one. My friend showed me Father's new video over the weekend and I've watched it a handful of times since. So much pink, so much cool. The beat and the assembly reminds me ever so slighty of Tyga and Lil Wayne's track “Faded”, but maybe I'm tripping. Awful Records henchman Father continues to make unique hip-hop with pink pistols, with rhyming “twat” with “...


Live Forever: The Big Kahuna Begins the Process

Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire is back with a new moniker, The Big Kahuna (or BK for short), and a series of EPs collectively dubbed The Process, leading up to the release of a full-length later next year.

Nestled into one of the more secluded and unknown parts of the city, in a quaint part of town known adoringly by locals as Navy Pier, Bubba Gump Shrimp will submerge you in the scenic waters of Lake Michigan. Unfortunately, Bubba Gump’s is only for the most hardcore of seafood snobs, offering up unorthodox interpretations on shrimp-like popcorn shrimp and coconut shrimp (both styles uniquely Chicago) and a variety of...


Fall 2015 Reality TV Report: Ladies of London, Dash Dolls and More

The world has changed since I last reported. A fantastic season of Real Housewives of New York City is in the rearview. Real Housewives of Orange County is speeding towards conclusion with an ethically questionable (and superb) storyline concerning Brooks’s supposedly fake cancer. Meanwhile, Bachelor in Paradise closed a continuously breathtaking season with the worst on-screen breakup in human history, and I Am Cait has inexplicably...
