OK, so … 

Two of our staffers, Ernest Wilkins and Mick Swasko, are basically two guys out of a buddy cop comedy. So we slowly started concocting the details of a new TNT buddy cop drama, called “Knight & Daye,” featuring their hijinks. 

It has gotten completely out of control — entire scripts have been written, trailers have been made — as evidenced by their inclusion in this week’s RedEye Rundown news recap. 

Watch it, here. It is seriously ridiculous. 

Cool thing: Chicago up-and-comer Tink is now working with Timbaland on a “big project.”



my next big project is this new artist @Official_Tink

Tink — along with Sasha Go Hard and Katie Got Bandz — was featured on our cover in 2012 while she was still in high school:

What do you think about other artists in Chicago right now?
It’s a big movement going on right now. I love it. I feel like everybody is out here putting work in. It’s so beautiful.

Hey Tumblr people in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, I need your help!
If you see a car like this (‘97-00’ Mercedes C-Class C220, C230 or C280) with a smashed up front right (passenger side) corner with broken headlight glass, please please please grab the license plate number and message me with it! Partial plate or even the location where you saw it would help.
Long story short, someone driving a car like this destroyed my car that was parked on Fullerton in Logan at about 2:45 this morning. They didn’t leave a note but they did leave some broken headlight glass and a portion of a fender liner.

Get on it, Internet Justice League of Chicago.

The under-35 “Millennial generation” is “lazy, entitled, selfish and shallow,” according to Time. “They often are unable to think for themselves,” reports slate.com. “They don’t necessarily understand the value of money because many of them have no experience with it, and yet, incredibly dichotomously, they think they deserve to be highly paid,” says Business Insider.

But recent data reveal that, at least when it comes to money, Millennials are far more careful than their “spoiled” reputation would suggest—and that will reshape the economy, for better or worse, experts say.
