Video: Chemo treatment 3

Well, I’m three-quarters of the way through the first phase of my chemo treatments. This was round 3 out of 4 with Adriamycin and Cytoxan. I have been told that these drugs are the roughest, because your white blood cells are hit so hard. After the A/C, I have 12 rounds of Taxol, which should be a little less compromising on the immune system.

The Tylenol murders of 1982: Tylenol killer caught?

It was the night before last that I cursed the Tylenol killer for the seven hundred thousandth time. I had just ripped the plastic wrapper off some hoisin sauce with my one free hand, and turned the bottle bottom up. I started shaking it, but nothing came out. Doh!...

Barack Obama restaurant review: Chicago’s Dixie Kitchen

I just saw this video, one of two posted yesterday by Steve Johnson at ChicagoTribune.com. Apparently, there is no end to the man's coolness. Not only is he appearing on Check, Please!, one of my favorite TV shows (seven years ago, before anyone knew how cool it was),...

Oprah Winfrey’s MySpace: I’m not Oprah-worthy?

Now I understand how David Letterman must have suffered. It's like an unexpected punch in the stomach. It's difficult to even breathe, and I just sit here in absolute disbelief wondering what I ever did to deserve this. In the hopeful early morning hours of October...

The New Mastersounds at Subterranean in Chicago

It's hard for me to find any new music to get excited about these days. The last band that really impressed me was The White Stripes, and they're venerable veterans now. Before that, Lucinda Williams' Car Wheels on a Gravel Road blew me away. That was seven years ago....
