    Thursday Feb 26 | Chicago Reader

    I won't put on airs: I can't speak or read a word of Ukrainian. And I'd never heard of Okean Elzy till I got a press release last month alerting me to their show on Sunday at the Riviera Theatre.

    Jun 20, 2013 | Chicago Reader

    Thursday Feb 26 | Chicago Reader

    Like many people who work in offices and who would rather sleep as late as possible instead of getting up early to prepare and pack elaborate lunches, I eat a lot of sandwiches. I wouldn't say I'm a connoisseur exactly, but I have some firm opinions about what makes a good sandwich.

    Wednesday Feb 25 | Chicago Reader

    When drill erupted out of Chicago three years ago behind the rise of Chief Keef , the infamous MC brought his close circle of friends with him into the limelight.

    Many years ago, I heard a funny story from former aldermanic candidate Marja Stoll about running against Alderman Dick Mell's mighty political machine, then rooted in Logan Square. As one of those guys generally on the losing end of elections against the machine, I wanted my chance to be the taunter.

  13. Wild Tales? You bet they areRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Feb 20 | Chicago Reader

    How to discuss this giddily inventive Argentinian feature without ruining its many surprises? The chief pleasure of Wild Tales is its sheer unpredictability; throughout the film, writer-director Damin Szifron flips the tone from farce to horror and back again, piles up absurd coincidences, and without warning throws his characters into life-or-death situations. The film presents six stories about revenge and chance, each beginning believably but getting progressively crazier as it goes along.

    Wednesday Feb 25 | Chicago Reader

    It's been a few months and I'm ready to be honest about something: I didn't love Serial as much as everyone else did. It's awfully fun to get wrapped up in a mystery, especially one that's presumed to involve some great injustice , and even better if it's one we can fantasize we might solve as we ride shotgun alongside a friendly, scrappy journalist; together we'll show a jaded and corrupt criminal justice system what's what.

  20. Guy in Your MFA tweeter gets literary attention that should rightfully go to guys in MFAsRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 24 | Chicago Reader

    It's kind of amazing that the Guy in Your MFA twitter feed did not exist before last fall. I mean, we live in a world where thousands of young men, many sporting beards and thick-rimmed glasses and who aspire to be the next David Foster Wallace, spend years of their lives hunched over their laptops beside full ashtrays and empty bottles of cheap whiskey just so they can hold court in seminar rooms and make pronouncements like this: In its fully mature form, this species is known as " Jonathan Franzen ."
