Chicago CreComm trip pix - Day 2

The day started out with some shocking news from USA Today: killing bin Laden made people believe more in the war on terror. I can't wait for more revelations in tomorrow's edition.

The Wrigley Building. Did you know it's made entirely out of gum?

The beautiful Chicago River (floating bodies Photoshopped out).

An excellent PR campaign asking the people of Chicago to do nice things for each other. I did my part today by leaving a server a loonie.

Frank Gehry: what a showoff.

These two tourists just flew in from Jersey, and boy are their arms tired.

The Jay Pritzker Pavilion makes Winnipeg's Scotiabank Stage look like a student film.

Right before I jumped. Thankfully, a dump truck full of duck feathers happened to be driving by just at the right time.

The Art Institute of Chicago. The Emperor greeted us at the door and said, "May the 4th be with you."

Read between the stairs.

The Wrigley painting. Did you know it's made entirely out of gum?

Marc Chagall's America Windows. Made in America. Smoked glass or non?

Graham Crackers Comics. Honestly, these dudes were arguing about the Iron Man movies. Don't they have better things to do, like...go to music stores?

Reckless Records. I recklessly bought some music, instead of downloading it for free.

Ahhh, lovely blossoms growing in the heart of Chicago; take that puny tree in Brooklyn.


If you squint, you can see Dr. Robert Hartley walking to work.

The Chicago Tribune lobby. When I was a kid, there was a thing called "newspapers," and - aw, forget it: you'd never believe me. 

A dawg at Portillo's (above) followed by chocolate at Ghiardelli
Followed by heartburn and regret.

A lovely night of thea-tah with Jay and Silent Bob, above spelling of millennium aside. 

Tomorrow: a day at the museums!

  2. NOOO! You went to Jay and Silent Bob?! I wanted to go so baaaaaaad.... how was it?
