    Feb 29, 2012 | Chicago Reader

    I'd heard this album many times, but when a recent reissue prompted me to revisit it, the music connected with me in a huge way. Part of the reason is that "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" is just a massive song, probably one of my 25 favorites.

    Tuesday | Chicago Reader

    A day or two before this month's elections, I spotted a curious political ad on TV. Bob Dold, the Republican candidate for Congress in the Tenth District, was boasting that the newspapers had spoken-and they all rejected his opponent, the Democratic incumbent, Brad Schneider.

    Monday | Chicago Reader

    It wasn't proven that Alfredo Vazquez-Hernandez was a top aide to Joaquin "El Chapo" GuzmA n , but he was still sentenced to 22 years in prison. Federal judge Ruben Castillo said Monday that he didn't see solid evidence showing that Alfredo Vazquez-Hernandez met with Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" GuzmA n, let alone that he was a logistical coordinator for the drug organization.

    Leander and Bella show off what's going on in club wear nowadays: skin and sportswear, as represented by local hit brand Health Goth . These two look like they actually put some thought into their styling, which is pretty refreshing in the age of normcore.

  10. Beyond the Lights is the most subversive American movie of the yearRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Nov 24 | Chicago Reader

    There was a great crowd at the preview screening of Beyond the Lights that I attended earlier this month. For many releases, movie studios forgo traditional press screenings and preview the films for audiences made up of critics as well as noncritics, with the latter group usually outnumbering the former by a wide margin.

  11. Goose Island's 2014 Bourbon County beers, reviewed by six increasingly drunk peopleRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Nov 24 | Chicago Reader

    Goose Island sent me several sexy photos of this years' Bourbon County lineup, but because I am stubborn and prideful I insisted on taking my own. When I reviewed Goose Island's Bourbon County beers last year, I explained that I had mixed feelings about stoking the "alarming acquisitive frenzy" surrounding these sought-after limited releases.

  13. Listen to irresistible funk from the CongoRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Nov 24 | Chicago Reader

    I don't think there's a better record label dealing in vintage African music these days than Analog Africa, which has uncovered, annotated, and beautifully packaged a load of excellent, usually funky sounds from the 70s created in Ghana, Benin, Angola, and Togo, among other locales . I interviewed label owner Samy Ben Redjeb for a piece I wrote for the Reader six years ago and at the time he lamented that the market kind of forced him to focus on the funky side of his expert crate digging-in general, record buyers weren't as enthusiastic about subtler, more traditional sounds.

    Monday Nov 3 | Chicago Reader

    For October's Trunk Show, artist Kelly Lloyd displayed her bumper sticker that featured a found quote: "Perhaps God is more concerned with my availability than my ability?" Chicago has a tradition of showing art where you'd least expect it. Among the spots currently operating, there's the Bike Room , located in a Rogers Park apartment building's former bike locker; the Suburban , a gallery in an Oak Park garage; and the Motor Gallery, which recently began sharing an address with a U-Haul rental outpost in the South Loop.

  15. Bartender-author Greg Seider teaches us how to make cocktails that don't suckRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Nov 24 | Chicago Reader

    Put me in a home kitchen and I could kludge almost anything to at least edibility with some wine, garlic, and rosemary. But having grown up in the era of the Pina Colada song , the low point for mixology in America, I've never felt like I had a comparable intuitive sense of the principles of cocktails.

  16. The Jungle v. Twenty Years at Hull-House: The Greatest Ever Chicago Book Tournament round oneRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Nov 24 | Chicago Reader

    After spending a couple of weeks in the literary company of Jane Addams reading her memoir, Twenty Years at Hull-House , I feel like I've gotten to know her a little bit, and I do not think she would approve of her book squaring off against Upton Sinclair's muckraking novel The Jungle to determine which should advance in a tournament to decide the Greatest Chicago Book Ever Written. Addams, as she wrote in a letter to her friend, the University of Chicago professor and philosopher John Dewey, believed antagonism was always unnecessary.

    Dec 29, 2011 | Chicago Reader

    The Kitchen, located in the Reid Murdoch Building, is lovely: chandelier-lit, with exposed concrete, blond wood, and slate-blue accents. The first thing you're likely to notice when you do a web search for the Kitchen Chicago is its nominal similarity to Kitchen Chicago, the shared-use kitchen that incubated so many of our small food businesses over the last nine years.

    There couldn't be a more appropriate recipient of the Museum of Science and Industry's first-ever Fashion Inspiration Award than French blogger and illustrator Garance DorA .
