Chicago Underground Events

These guys (ILL MEASURES/LSC) throw some awesome parties here in Chicago.  My favorite one was a couple of years ago for Halloween.  The entire place was decorated in black light artwork, and there was an entire section dedicated to the Smurf Village!  There was even a Smurf walking around…

TV: Heroes

Since the show first started, Heroes has been one of our all-time favorites.  It intellectually balances sci-fi and fantasy with action, humor and drama very well.  The basis of the series is that a small number of people are beginning to develop strange, wonderful and sometimes horrifying physical and/or mental powers.  As you can imagine, the ways these individuals use their special abilities varies – for some become Heroes and some become Villains…

To continue further into the storyline of Heroes, a set of online graphic novels have been produced.  I haven’t gotten to read many of these yet, but they are great so far and I plan to get to the rest of them as soon as possible.

Online Photo Editing

FotoFlexer – I’ve found quite a few of these online photo editing tools lately, but this is the best by far in my opinion.  It not only does what all the other sites (such as Splashup) do, but also offers many more features and goodies like using Layers and adjusting Levels.  Picnik is also a decent editor, which allows you to save to and work directly from your Picasa or Flickr account.

Pixlr – Just found this one and haven’t tried it yet, but wanted to post it right away because of how quick it loaded compared to the others I’ve tried.  Many of them still use hefty system resources, so this might be a good choice for those who have slower systems.
