ChicagoNow. Get it? It’s NOW! Hip. Happening. Interwebs. Stuff. Things.

Looking over the list of blogs in the Tribune’s new “hey, we have a network of local blogs” venture that is in beta right now, my only reaction is … lots of sports and shopping. Yes, there’s other great stuff in there (love the CTA Tattler) but it’s lighter on news than it is on consumer/fan content. Exactly how much coverage of the Cubs does one city need? It’s not like the papers and TV and radio and plenty of blogs already aren’t acting like it’s the Second Coming every time a game takes place.

Though I have to say, Joe the Cop is certainly filling a void in the information world:

If you’re meeting a prostitute at a local motel, it’s probably a good
idea to check behind the closed bathroom door when you first arrive.
That way, once you get naked and the prostitute starts sucking on your
fingers while you pleasure yourself with your free hand, you won’t be
surprised when a strange man jumps out of the bathroom to rob you. On
your back, nude, with your fingers in a prostitute’s mouth isnota good way to confront a robber.

I’m sorry, no sarcasm, that’s AWESOME.

    “One Story Up” and “When In Iran” got added to my Google Reader feeds today. And for all the SOP sports coverage, I’m hoping “Down on the Farm” stays. And I liked Joe the Cop’s post on paper bags.
    Gotta admit I’m pleasantly surprised so far, though they’ll need to step up the politics offerings (and bring with it, hopefully, stronger progressive/reform offerings than Mother Tribune offers). Only thing that makes my skin crawl is some of the graphics. YOU MUST CHILL. I HAVE HIDDEN YOUR GRADIENT FILTER.
