“ That’s the place where all the shittiness happens,” said the child’s father, Lee Tendering, adding that the Cubs have been fucking up at Wrigley Field for almost 100 years. “Your grandpa used to take me here to watch the Cubs suck when I was a boy, and hopefully someday you’ll bring your son here to watch the Cubs suck. ”

Finding Vivian Maier now out in theaters
Now showing at IFC Center in NYC: Finding Vivian Maier. Maier is the Chicago street photographer whose extensive and impressive body of work was recently discovered at an auction. John Maloof bought Maier’s work, started posting it to a blog several years ago, did a Kickstarter (one of the first I backed) to fund a documentary about Maier and her photos, and now the film is showing in theaters around the US and Canada.

Reblogging because the news keeps saying there were no serious injuries.
Instacart is like Peapod but uses actual stores you’d shop at (COSTCO!!!, Whole Foods, Jewel, Mariano’s). This link is good for $10 off your first order.

Hey Tumblr people in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, I need your help!
If you see a car like this (‘97-00’ Mercedes C-Class C220, C230 or C280) with a smashed up front right (passenger side) corner with broken headlight glass, please please please grab the license plate number and message me with it! Partial plate or even the location where you saw it would help.
Long story short, someone driving a car like this destroyed my car that was parked on Fullerton in Logan at about 2:45 this morning. They didn’t leave a note but they did leave some broken headlight glass and a portion of a fender liner.

“ We’re supposed to, anyway. Chicagoans are hardwired to accept—nay, welcome—an extended arctic interval so hostile that the rest of the world would likely consider it punishment. But let’s be honest: Our attitude toward the nadir of winter is not love or even resignation. It is fear. Fear that we will be exposed as ordinary people who, beneath the civic chest thumping, dread the dehumanizing grind of cold weather. ”
