    Murder metal ushers in holiday cheer at Macabre's 20th annual Holiday of Horror
    What better way to celebrate the joys of the holiday season than by listening to a bizarre, hyper death-metal track titled "What the Heck, Richard Speck?" Local trio Macabre-whose mashup of death metal, grindcore, thrash, and serial killer obsession has been dubbed "murder metal"-have been ringing in the holiday season with a showcase of twisted extreme music called the Holiday of Horror for two decades now.

M&J Fdtn. Gave and Gave at Christmas Time

TBT - MJ and I take a photo at the JUMP offices where we recorded his narration track for a video I produced and directed for the M&J Foundation (M&J stood for Michael & Juanita Jordan Charitable Foundation). MJ had a much bigger smile when he took a photo with my son Matt and his buddy Brett Witek, but they didn't make him work like I did.

Thinking about Moving to 60616

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.

Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....

    Thank you all for your thoughtful responses....60616 here we come!
