HEY CHICAGO, IS THIS YOUR DOG?
Friend of a friend found this cute pup on Clark & Wallen.
The pup is unchipped, sweet and loveable and obviously belongs to someone.
Feel free to reblog to spread the word and get this doggie home, or you know, check out his Grindr profile. Whatever!
You can send me an email at kellydeal at gee mail dot com if you have any info, or leave a note for me on Tumblr, I’ll put you all in touch.

My van was stolen yesterday in Chicago with everything Danny and I own in it, along with 4 friends’ guitars/personal items/passports. We’ve been away from home for nearly 6 months. Touring from New York to Florida, then out to LA. Stayed in LA for 3 months to write and record a full length while living in the van. And then planned to tour back through Canada finishing in NY.
We got through Canada but lost everything yesterday in Chicago. The window was smashed out, and the van was taken in broad day light near Wicker Park. Total of somewhere near $25k worth of amps, guitars, recording equipment, and personal belongings. We don’t have any type of insurance that will cover any of these losses. I’m going to try to update photos of all of the gear…I’ll post what would be most noticeable if it popped up somewhere around Chicago or anywhere.
Also, Some people have reached out wanting to donate. It’s truly amazing how supportive friends have been. If you want to help out at all there is a paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of the gear, including the van, I bought from sleeping on my floor for 6 months while renting my room on airbnb and working full time at a Japanese restaurant. Danny incurred about 10k in debt buying recording equipment to make a record that is now lost, as the four copies of mixes are on harddrives/computers/laptops in the van. We are feeling generally sick after pushing so hard to make music happen in our lives. If you want to help out, hit us on the paypal. Everything helps, and it will go directly to getting us back to being touring musicians.
If you have any questions regarding anything or have any leads, email me at email@example.com or get me on facebook. I’m gonna go buy a sweater now. It was cold last night.

I’m so sick of hearing about people in Chicago working so hard to achieve their goals, only to have some scuzzbags steal their shit.
Why isn’t this picture of Dirtbag Rahm all over my dashboard this morning? He looks like he’s about to start packing a hard pack of Kools and asking where a man can find some split-tail.
