Top of the Morning!

Top o the mornin to ya! I want to call this blog entry “Morning Commute” or “Morning Musings”, but I also don’t want to be a super pretentious blogger. I’ll let Gawker handle that. So Top of the Morning it is, for now. It’s ethnic, not pretentious. This morning? Another Sun-Times Investigation; Chris Harris and the Douche from Public Access; creating a New Fashion Trend; and Is “311” the stupidest band ever? More after the jump.

I am going to try and have a blog post every weekday morning. It will probably wear thin, but I am having a little trouble figuring out how to manuever my old style of blogging with our new site. If I break it up throughout the day, it just seems really shallow. When all together? It’s at least 4 feet deep. Enough to swim or raft in.

ANOTHER SUN-TIMES INVESTIGATION?

Did you see last week’s Sun-Times story about the cop who parks in the tow zone and doesn’t get ticketed? First off, lame. Thanks for stating the obvious. And, I thought it was their god given right to park alonside the yellow stripe or in a handicap area. Thanks for clearing that up. I’ll tell them next time they do it to stop. But the best part of that cover story was how the Sun-Times actually had a red stripe on the front page saying “Another Sun-Times Investigation”. When did the Sun-Times turn into Jay-Z? What the fuck? The major market paper actually put “Another Sun-Times Investigation”. They might as well have said “Oh snap, here comes another one! We don’t stop! Our head is like a shark-fin!” Note to Sun-Times: When you have to call it out that it’s another investigation, you actually don’t gain respect, you lose it.

CHRIS HARRIS PROMISED MY UNCLE TICKETS TOO

Did you see this crazy story about some Harley jagbag who had Bears Safety Chris Harris on his public access show in August? And Chris Harris jokingly said he would get him into the Super Bowl if they made it? Well you can guess what this guy is doing. He is sitting outside of Halas Hall all day with a sign that says “Chris Harris, you Promised”. The news picked up on it and now it is the biggest Bears item of the week. Thanks Harley jag. Now Chris Harris isn’t thinking about covering Reggie Wayne over the top, now he is thinking about your dumb ass. If you were a Bears fan, you would stop this shameless promotion and watch it in your Fox Lake house. Zorn called Harris a weasel. Ouch. Here’s the comments, interesting stuff!

SPEAKING OF SUPER BOWL RIP-OFFS

Did you see the story of the sports bar that tore up a Super Bowl party contract? Some guy went out on a limb and signed a contract to have a Super Bowl party at O’Donovans. He signed it in December before it was certain the Bears would go. The bar accepted (of course) and now that the Bears are going, they feel they got a bad deal and they just tore up the contract. Moral of the story? Don’t do business or fraternize shitty Lincoln Park bars.

CLIP-ONS ARE THE RAGE

So Adam and I want to bring back the clip-on. But now with collared shirts, just with plain t-shirts. Really indie rock it up. I was going to wear a ton to work and go through the lame fashion misery for 2 weeks and then start to watch co-workers adapt my fashion. Well, I was watching Beauty and the Geek yesterday and one of the geeks stole our idea Witt. It’s all the rage. We aren’t trendsetters, we are wannabee geeks. Tough loss.

FINALLY

Is 311 the stupidest band ever? We put it in our latest screenplay. That song “Down” is pretty lame. I know the college girls love it, but come on….
