The male will have an unprotected and frequent textual exchange with the female and, most likely, multiple partners at the... Read more »

Cubicle Dance Party, featuring Team Bayside High
This is easily my favorite part of the week.  The idea is to bring you some of Chicago’s top DJs directly to your desk.  Get into party mode without even closing out of Excel.  Plug in your headphones and just listen or come early to get one of the two open turntables.  The music is... Read more »

Hump Day Soundtrack: I Always Fall For Your Type by Imelda Monique

Drake can basically do no wrong in my eyes.  He’s my new Michael Buble.  This remix of his banger is so painfully beautiful. This song is equal parts hopeful and desperate.  You’ve met someone.  You like them.  You like them more than you’ve liked someone in a long time.  BUT, the last time you liked... Read more »

Interracial Dating: Are we there yet?

I’ve always considered myself an Equal Opportunity Dater.  I’ve dated around the cultural map without batting a well-curled lash.  In fact, TDH was a tall, dark, handsome African-American.  I don’t find myself confined to any one particular racial attraction.  It’s never really been an issue for me. This morning, Gallup has reported that 86% of... Read more »

Angi Taylor - KISS FM Morning DJ: I've been a mega fan of Angi Taylor since the DreX In The Morning days.  Now, she's holding her own on Brotha Fred's Neighborhood.  The girl is smokin' hot, hilarious, married to a dude that rips faces off for a living and can keep up with my ridiculous sassiness.  Fox on, girl.  Fox on!

Hump Day Soundtrack: Puppy Toy by Tricky

This song drives me wild. A lyrical tip of the hat to Iggy Pop’s I Want To Be Your Dog, Puppy Toy screams carnally.  The video is pretty sexy too.  A little seedy, a little glamourous, dark, vibrant and colorful.  As described on Tricky’s page, “There may be a playful exterior, but lurking between the...

Love With Everything You've Got

Yesterday, I went to see the Soul Train 40th Anniversary Concert with a few friends at Pritzker Pavillion.  While picnicking, we noticed an older couple slow dancing to the live music.  It was adorable.  There is always a “I want that” factor when you see an older couple holding hands, but this was that last...
