‘Most notable of the pre-existing non-Trib blogs that have so far been added are CTA Tattler and Mike Doyle, of Chicago Carless, who is heading up Chicagosphere, a look at the Chicago blog scene.’–Chicagoist
Today, I’m the featured guest on Chicago’s homegrown Feast of Fools podcast, the most popular LGBT-themed daily talk show on the planet. Wonder twin powers, activate! Form of: a giddy gay blogger!
Ten days ago, when I lamented the over-the-top response of Chicagoist and some of their readers to my Gapers Block piece on how Intelligentsia Coffee alienated me as a customer, I never thought Intelligentsia’s own staff would jump on the bandwagon.
Imagine my surprise when two days after posting a shout out to Chicagoist for what had become a positive relationship again, on Monday Chicagoist scribe Chuck Sudo penned a personal attack on me and my blog over the Intelligentsia post I wrote for Gapers Block.
Even though Chicago’s own city council voted to better protect downtown residents from nuisance noise, local blog Chicagoist thinks it’s cool to continue to make fun of long-suffering downtowners. So I wrote to Chicagoist publisher Jake Dobkin to tell him why it isn’t.
The day after the Chicago City Council votes to rein in the nuisance noise from street performers in downtown Chicago, local blog Chicagoist again backhands downtown residents. Because, you know, downtowners don’t read Chicagoist?
Chicagoist tells downtown residents to deal with illegal drummers as the price of living downtown. Um, excuse me?
