Erika and i were at café intelligentsia last week, when there was a shoot-out in the fucking street. okay, i exaggerate. what really happened is, this guy robbed some block color t-shirts and hoodies from american apparel, and then he jumped into a taxi, and try to jack, pointing his gun at the driver's head, when an undercover cop pulled out his strap and there was this crazy stand-off, and this happened, not in bronzeville, or near cabrini green, no this happened in the middle of LAKEVIEW, two blocks from belmont street.
I went to my brother's commemoration at grand high school where he built a cob bench and planted some gardens with the neighborhood kids. here are some pics:

Lunch at the new whole foods on halsted and waveland:
Also finally made it to the chicago field musuem. here are some pics:
You know, some people take fasting way too far
Indiana Jones' living room, aka the main hall
In case you can't read, it says STANLEY FIELD HALL, of course,
if you can't read, you can't read it the second time either.
And here are some pictures from the ancient americas exhibition:
And here are some pictures of our stroll through the city:
At the exit of the field museum
Soldier stadium (aka moon over my hammy or the UFO that landed on the acropolis)
Darwin the pimp, and brontosaurus, his lady friend
The train tracks of the chi. . . ironically enough, there was a south shore
train taking off as we walked over the bridge
My baby, growing up before my eyes
They look like gigantic bang & olufsen tower speakers
Okay, that's it for now.
