traffic! My bro, sis and I were caught on 294 for THREE hours on friday afternoon. By far the worst chicago traffic jam i have ever been in....

I don't know how you guys do it.
Posted: Oct 9, 2006 8:58 pm
 
Chicago sucks, period. Minus a few really awesome people there. The city itself fuckin' blows though, as do most of the people I've seen at shows. Either stuck up fuckin' pretentious garage rock douchebags, or violent, pea-brained PC-fascist hardcore kids.

whoa, whoa...hold the phone....I love Chicago! I could never live there though!

If it wasn't for people like Daris, Lastname and Coppens I would never even visit the shithole.

yeah - i've been stuck on 294 for forever many times
chicago is brilliant but the traffic is awful

I haven't been here very long, but so far Chicago traffic is both my favorite and least favorite part of the city.
Posted: Oct 9, 2006 10:23 pm
 
fuck that lame traffic, it's the pea-brained PC-fascist hardcore kids ----- my coach told me that's the worst part about Chicago! except for that whining coppens jock-dork who's always crying about the dumbest why i'm so punk bullshit. biggest attention whore i've ever heard. talk about pretentious, you just need to re-arrange that sentence after you know those people a little better
Posted: Oct 9, 2006 10:26 pm
 
I don't think so. I was in Chicago less than a week ago and almost got jumped a huge gang of latino punks because some fuckin' dyke thought I called her a "faggot." I never even talked to the cunt. Never even saw her before she started pushing me around and asking people "do WE know this guy?"

Fuck that city.

Ahem, we were carpooling! We're the solution, pal!

we were also doing our part by leaving early enough to not hit rush hour...


another thing in Chicago that sucks: Touhy Avenue! heading East from Eden's Expressway.....there are so many pot holes on that damn road (Happy Birthday, Devin!)!!!

Roads suck pretty much everywhere in Chicago. Lake Shore Drive north of Irving Park is like going off-roading.

By reading this post I am convinced you could have NEVER called someone a 'faggot'. I DO DECLARE!! BANNED IS INNOCENT!

And chicago is awesome. Green Bay sucks, except for its thrift stores.

When I moved here for the fluid easy-going traffic years ago, I was disappointed to find that, in a city of millions, the traffic was horrible!

Many moons ago, it only took me about 45 minutes to get to Fireside from Waukegan. Those were the days.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 5:32 pm
 
i know! you'd think with all those people, the traffic wouldn't be so bad! but yeah, it's just the oppostite!



(seriously though, of course i expect traffic when going anywhere near Chicago, but it has never been so bad as it was on Friday.....especially being 2:30 in the afternnon)
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 5:43 pm
 
you can pretty much assume that driving on the expressway on a friday is going to take you double the time.

and you gotta love a city the has rush-hour on the weekends too.

Chicago is great--just not to live in. Well, I couldn't take the weather and the crime in the neighborhood I was living at the time (though I understand my old block is younghausfrau and stroller-central these days). But I loved it overall. Great people!!!

there are lots of things that 'suck' but there are so many things that outweigh the bad with the good. traffic: that's life in the big city, ride a bike. crime: that's life in the big city, get a gun. getting beat up by girls: that's life in the big city, start hanging out in boys town. lastname: that's life in the big city, start hanging out in boys town.

It's not that I've never called anyone "faggot" before, it's that I didn't call this chick a "faggot." I have never called a girl a "faggot" that's for damn sure. Anyway, I can use the word "faggot" if I want to because I've sucked cock plenty of times before. I've actually pretty much had boyfriends. It's like black guys using the word "nigga," ya know? Like I said, I didn't call this cunt a fuckin' "faggot" though.

Green Bay sucks, sure. Duh. Chicago does though too.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 7:18 pm
 
The two instances of crime that occured to me in CHI seriously changed me; I have not been as carefree since. I guess I could go to years of therapy, take Jujitsu and/or pack heat and maybe I'd not have panic attacks here and there, but yeah. It sucked cos I really liked a lot of things about living there. But the weather was worse than the crime, really. I am a total wuss about that kind of winter.

Isn't Dennis Hastert (Speaker of the House) from Chicago? He's even more creepy than Newt. Newt's "Contract with America" became "Contact with America". Thank you for fucking young boys. Dennis, you're doin' a heck of job.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:03 pm
 
I lived in Chicago 2 years & could never adjust to the horrible weather. It's just not reasonable to expect a human to live in conditions like that. And it's also the only city I've ever been to on this planet where I was victim of crime. Multiple times.
Actually- it's my belief that the whole state of IL is fucked. More nuclear power plants in IL than there are in the entire country west of IL. When I left that state I hated it so much I swore I'd never go back for the rest of my life. 13 years and I still haven't.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:06 pm
 
Yes,Dennis Hastert. But a better pol originally from there would be Seattle's very own "Bagdad Jim" McDermott! And don't forget yo mama Obama.

Portland's home,but Chicago's my favorite of the Big Three City States. My utmost favorite city is still NOLA,so it's still the Second City to me.

It was last I knew. Great place!
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:20 pm
 
I actually find that the weather is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. the nice days are fucking PERFECT and there are actually many of them. Maybe it's because I'm from Ohio...the winters are pretty much the same as far as I'm concerded... spring and fall just don't last as long.

I've lived in Chicago 5 years and still can't imagine living anywhere else.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:21 pm

sorry you were a victim of crime multiple times. something like that can really color your view of a city.

as for the horrible weather... i LOVE the severity of chicago's weather.... but that's me.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:36 pm
 
I lived in Chicago for a few months but the winter hit and it drove me out. It was also at the height of the Drag City/Thrill Jockey indie-rock thing and it seemed to me that the city was over-run with douchebags. I probably didn't stick it out long enough to find the right people.

I did get dragged into a crackhouse up the street from where I lived in Logan Square, forced to strip and robbed. But me and my buddy had a good laugh about it once we were home safe and back to our Wild Irish Rose. Why would they think we were carrying our money up our butts anyway? Hehe.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:37 pm
 
Hastert isn't from the city. His son Josh was a tattooed punk rocker who owned a record store in DeKalb (Seven Dead Arson); now he's a lobbyist.
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 9:56 pm

Yes, yes it is.

I found that Chicago was like the Mecca for all Midwesterners. And if you are truly Midwestern, you are already used to that biting ass cold, massive amounts of snow, spring that may be spring one day but a blizzard the next, etc etc etc weather. I loved the summer though and there are days in the middle of the worst of winter that are gorgeous. But sheeeeit. COLD!!!!!
Posted: Oct 10, 2006 10:16 pm
 
The worst thing about Chicago are the people in their young-mid twenties that all look EXACTLY the same, like they read Vice and took fashion tips. For some reason it just pisses me off.

Good, Chi-Town is too good for him. I wonder how many times Dennis wrastled with his tattooed son when he was younger. Fuckin' creep.And if you are truly Midwestern, you are already used to that biting ass cold I always loved showing up for school with frozen snot on my upper lip and hands so cold I couldn't write for the 1st 10 minutes of class.
If you can't stand the heat, get out the kitchen.

"Loving" and "being used to" are two very different things. I am "used to" stifling humidity where I drip sweat 3.5 seconds after exiting the house in the summers and can't get a good lungfull of air until I get back inside, but "love it"? Nah.

You know what really sucks in Chicago? Getting a viral version of strep throat, won't respond to antibiotics, having a fever just shy of 104 for 3 days (those fever driven nightmares were more intense than most of my trips), feeling like every swallow you took was scraping the skin off a nodule the size of a grape that was growing on your tonsil and looked like cauliflour from all the puss sacks(disgusting imagery, but accurate), and having to drive all the way to fucking naperville on a Saturday cause that's the only place you could find an appointment with a doctor cause of the crappy insurance coverage your company has; for you non chicagoans, that's a 2 hour drive with Sat traffic each way, all while I was peaking with my fever, and every time I passed under shade in the car I went into violent chill convulsions, and every time the car pulled into the sun, I sweated like I was sitting on the sun (and no, I wasn't driving, I couldn't). That's what fucking sucks in Chicago. Shit, I hadn't been that sick in years!

I love when people not from Green Bay and maybe only having visited a few times (if that many) try to tell people from Green Bay that "Green Bay sucks." Is that supposed to be an insult or something? "Green Bay sucks." "No shit" doesn't even come close. There is no response to someone who thinks they really know how much it sucks. Did you read our newspaper or something? Watch our local news, maybe visit the 9/11 Memorial (the FIRST of its kind in the whole U.S. of A.)? Should I even mention the Packers? I mean, really, what was it that tipped you off? Try living here for about 28 years and then explain to me how much this place sucks, if I haven't jumped off the fucking Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge yet.

I think it's that whole "the grass is greener on the other side" effect, ya know? I really don't give a fuck if somebody bashes my municipality because it does have its drawbacks. I happen to be getting laid on a steady basis,(my girlfriend is from Philly) but if I weren't, I would be telling every man, woman and child in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area to kiss my fucking ass...

However, if I lived in Chi-Town I feel that I would be more successful because I resemble my Slavonic Ma more than I look like my Franco Dad. Goddammit! I wish I lived in Chicago!!!!!!!

Heh heh, I just re-read my post...a bit venomous perhaps, but whatever. I don't care, really, it just seems to happen a lot (people from out of town trying to tell me it sucks here, I mean -- Argh, whoever you are, it wasn't a personal attack honestly). It sucks pretty much everywhere except Algoma, I think. And parts of Canada.

Chris, you aren't honestly going to try to brag about the weather there after Katrina, are you?

Ronnie, I've been all over wisconsin, even lived there for like a week once, hell, I've even been to Algoma a time or two, I was just responding to someone from Green Bay accusing Chicago of sucking.

I love the shitty weather. It's not really that bad now that we're not living in grass huts, wearing lion clothes, and have coats, thermostats and the free will to go inside. When the weather is good, it's great! We got the lake, tons of parks, the river ain't that bad on the north end, and fishing is as good as anywhere. I think snaggin' season just started. Who wants some old stanky salmon to smoke? Me!

well, one thing in Chicago that does truly suck is that turd Daley.

He's now saying that he plans to have police camera on every block by 2016.

Daley needs to be drawn and quatered, maybe even tarred and feathered. That turd is ruining Chicago.

What Chicago really needs is police cameras in every politicians office. That would fix Chicago better.

That's a great post, Mike. You know that one of Brad and Amber's friends jumped off the Tower Drive bridge? He was talking to his mom while he did it. That's pretty intense.

Anyway, yeah, duh, like I said, I know Green Bay sucks. But just because x = suck doesn't mean that z does not = suck. Chicago fuckin' sucks!

speaking of dykes. i saw a betty show at the house of blues. and while i had a great time, both betty and the house of blues sucked. but! Miss Pam Grier was there and that didn't suck.

Two things about Green Bay that don't suck(and for the record i've never been there):

1. The Packers are the only fan-owned team in the NFL,and they have the good taste to have:

2. Brett Favre of Kiln,MS.,a gent whom has been sold w*** to by some of my Coast friends when he's back in town(no names),as one of their top players.

Cameras on every block would definitely make Chicago less ruling,but have you been to Portland lately? Big Brother Is Watching Who? It's just there for our safety,because we can't trust ourselves - - NOT! (now that's retro!)
Posted: Oct 12, 2006 11:28 pm
 
The Packers are the only fan-owned team

I had a friend up visiting from Texas back in early September. Great guy, but doesn't follow sports AT ALL. Well, that weekend the Bears were playing the Packers. We drove by a bar advertising with the a banner you could watch The Bears and the Packers there. My friend asked all of us in the car, dead serious, if that was a gay bar we just passed.

I can never think of The Bears playing the Packers the same again.
Posted: Oct 13, 2006 12:04 am
 
HA! - the ironic thing is, it probably was a gay bar.
