What about John Lloyd Wright, Oak Park, IL?

Did you know that the toy “Lincoln logs” was created by the second son of Frank Lloyd Wright, John Lloyd Wright? This toy was introduced into the National Toy hall of Fame in 1999, and yeah this fool got famous off it and money was made. However, there is no mention of this guy, when he was in fact born in Oak Park, Il and created a really famous product but since he wasn’t a scumbag like his father or jerk like Hemingway he does not get noticed.

You have to give it to the guy for trying to work with his father the guy who although was a famous architect but was a jerk to work with. Oh, plus Frank Lloyd Wright left his (John’s) mother for another woman (Mamah Cheney) even though both were married. However, this is a great fun fact, because it shows that Oak Park, Il really has its priorities really mixed up when it celebrates its “heroes” kinda like Chicago celebrating (officially) Al Capone.

The moral story here is not to recognize people like John Lloyd Wright, John Maloney or even Betty White but Oak Park, IL likes to focus upon those who have major faults. People who usually we do want kids to look up to or follow in the steps of, you know, people who stayed married to one person for a while and not dump them in a horrible way. Yes, John was married three times but at least he did not cheat on his wife publicly and waited a couple of months before moving along. Geez.

Spring term nearly over so I will be able to focus more on the blog.

Omg I have been so busy writing rewriting and re-rewriting stuff for my first class of my spring term it is ridiculous the amount of time And effort that I have put in this class is enormous I have actually worked my Grammarly program overtime to get my grade an A of course. But the constant misdirection, double talk and retaliation from this instructor was two times the amount of crazy shit that I usually deal with on a daily basis in Oak Park, at work, getting laid, or finding some cool ass shit to wear.

The effort spent was like trying to get Head for Pete’s sake, damn I just said “Pete’s sake”! But it was a fucking lot of teeth pulling babying and outsmarting that usually, you don’t Have to do unless you playing a role on “homeland” the television series or trying to make sure yo ass don’t get fired for doing stupid shit like in the movie “Friday”.

This instructor was nearly impossible to please and difficult to understand. I will take print screens of most of the Crazy shit I dealt with including a nut job fellow student who worked at a dental office I would never go into, cause the chick is Cray cray But I need to hold off until I am out of the program this fall to talk shit. Crazy fucking bitch. Wooo glad I’m done. Fuck that crazy bitch where the sun doesn’t shine!

Thank God for Winter it stops the Neighbor from sanding furniture downstairs in Oak Park, IL

I am glad it’s winter because I can have some peace and quiet from my neighbor Meg always sanding her furniture like she is on an episode of this old House with Bob Vila (remember that show?) n the back area where the garbage cans are at the /entrance way to the laundry area and where some people park their cars without any village stickers. Wait I am in an apartment complex right? You ask. Yes, I am so it’s not like it’s her property to go and make a mess sanding furniture and leaving sawdust everywhere e for all to walk in and track back into their apartments. Nor is it her right to block all the majority of the recycling cans by placing her furniture or work area right in front of them. Nor is it her sidewalk to stain or leave wood stain on the ground, basically in the form of an outline of the furniture she painted with said stain.

Yes, with total disregard for anyone there was shit left everywhere and she did not attempt to clean it up! I came home from lunch a couple days in a row I would say basically 8 days in a two-week period and was beset by her sanding! There was not peace and quiet escape from the job on my Lunches there was Meg sanding from what I gathered was early morning to 7 pm at night, basically whenever it got dark.

Now I have to hand it to her work ethic but god damn on two days I took off in that same time period the sanding last from at least 8:30 am to 7:30 pm. That is simply ridiculous unless you have a permit and were actually remodeling something officially and were licensed but this crazy ass is renting an apartment in our building like me!

Here I cannot play my music loud without someone trying to come down and talk shit and the management (Green Plan) backing it up by talking crazy but this straight up privileged chick with the sweaters on her shoulders, upper crust yuppie was just going buck wild outside making noise and destroying the property and, nothing, was, said! That is why I am glad winter is here because that stops all that fucking ignorant behavior (can’t stain in wet winter bitch!) and gives me some opportunities to peace and quiet!

Now if the stupid old cunt and her creepy son can stop playing with their 50 lb. dog at 10 pm at night I would finally be able to enjoy this apartment… oh I almost forgot about the dog shit, so scratch “enjoy” from my previous sentence. Fucking Oak Park, IL is filled with a bunch of crazy bitches young and old that are determined to make this village worse that it usually is.

Oh, I had my friend go downstairs and make a little video of her sanding outside in the back of the apartment I put it on YouTube to save space on the blog account, just click on the hyperlink to hear how loud this shit is! Crazy fucking bitch.

Here is the video on YouTube.com: https://youtu.be/3RpGCAODEOs

 

Oak Park, Il needs to adopt these signs today!

The other I was out in Berwyn and I parked near the depot at 32nd street and I saw this sign that was from the heavens itself! This “Clean up after your pet… $750.00 fine….”  Sign!

Talk about curbing your motherfucking dog, paying off Oak Park, Il budget deficit, and relief from stepping in dog shit for like, forever get these signs over into Oak Park, IL asap! I would personally miss days of work to report people leaving their dog’s shit everywhere and not picking it up and I do not think I am alone. Oak Park, Il needs to adopt this ordinance post these signs and collect some motherfucking money today!

I know some of these lazy ass bitches I see who smile at me as I walk by their dog shitting on the sidewalk would be singing another tune about leaving that poop down there from people to walk in.

Adopt these signs today!

Bank Of America expansion stalled in Oak Park, IL

The Marshall field building property … what? I just posted about this! Cool beans! This property on Harlem and Lake I have already bitched about, will be part of the increase rate of traffic at this intersection. The new Bank of America location was going to be another factor into the traffic dilemma, but I said “was” the project is now stalled!

Now having an organization like BOA wanting to move into a property like this like wanting it bad is exceptional, but the area leaders have misgivings of what it will bring to the area? HA! Really??? Because it does not conform to the standard of the “commercial area” and you have a Mary jane dispensary a few doors down, come on!

Although I do not like the idea of increased traffic in the area I think the idea of BOA locating in this spots would probably the best option for LESS traffic being generated at this intersection. Now BOA and another suitor for the location are thinking about going elsewhere and they should because why wait for Oak Park, Il to make up its mind If they want your business to be in THEIR area.

It sounds like a crazy ex that wants you to where the green socks instead of the white ones otherwise they are not going with you to your parents’ house for Christmas -sounds crazy right? So does the reasoning for BOA now being moved into this location asap but what does make sense in Oak Park, IL really? I mean they will have a Target store in the area but no BOA, I can tell which would be more out of place in the area and it is not BOA! I just love the fact that Oak Park, Il shoots itself in the foot every chance it can get. Just Stupid.

Here is the article discussing the delay of BOA moving into the Marshall Field’s building:

Target comes to Oak Park, IL!

Celebrate!  I see the news regarding a small Target near Lake and Harlem! I love how the residents and sometimes officials state they want to preserve the “heritage” of Oak Park, IL with its “feel” and architecture and such. Well, putting a Target near one of the busiest intersections around the village and area is the greatest way to do that! Great going morons! Where did the city planners get their degrees? In a Cereal box???

The traffic in this area and this intersection is already a mess so let’s add a huge name brand store and not add enough parking spots in the area because that is the intelligent thing to do. I love the fact that Chicago corruption has hit Oak Park, Il in a major way because there is no way this seems reasonable to the average resident’s sensibilities those who profess the glory of Oak Park, Il’s individual uniqueness.

Now this area of Harlem and Lake has been set up to be as bad as or ten times worse than the area where Forest Park, Il has the Walmart on Roosevelt and Desplaines Avenues. No longer can Oak Park, Il state it is unique it has become like every other village or town that has poor planning and terrible grasps of its own traffic problems. There are tons of places and empty spaces for a Target on Madison avenue but that would be thinking and logical, alas Oak Park, IL in its vanity is not about that.

Once they see the crowds a Target brings (which is almost as bad as Walmart crowds) they will realize someone has sold Oak Park, Il’s already pitiful soul to the devil, but then it will be too late to make changes. Changes in the infrastructure, streets etc., and no I did not forget about all the small unique businesses around Harlem and Lake that a small Target will kill once introduced into the area.

Bravo! Thank you Oak Park, IL for proving me right and that you are the biggest combination of idiots and hypocrites of them all!

Oak Park, IL is filled with crazies!

Oak Park, IL is like having parents in your business telling you what to do and where to park when you are like 45 or 50! Nowhere else I have lived around the city or in the suburbs has been this disruptive, it is actually so peaceful elsewhere.

Some of these crazy residents seem to like to lord over on others and show, nay, flaunt their superiority over others. These “superior” beings cannot wait to tell the world how they went or are going wrong. To me, all these fucks should just go tend their Bee factory or botanical converse and leave the rest of us sensible human being be.

There is enough craziness going on out in the world without the psychotic residents of Oak Park, Il just needlessly coming up to complete strangers and adding their two cents or demanding some type of action from. Basically, they should just learn their manners and just fuck off.

Oak Park, IL OPRFHS Sexual assault pt 2

Since there is no help coming from the Oak Park police department who marginalized a reported sexual assault that happened back in August, tired of the runaround one of the students got active and posted a petition on Change.org to address the issue. This just brings to light more allegations of sexual misconduct which who knows if they have been addressed by The Oak Park Police Department, as with my case with my crazy neighbor. It seems that the OPPD do not take such things seriously, maybe the petition on Change.org will bring create an atmosphere of professionalism from the Oak Park Police Department. Because seriously kids raping kids is just terrible and even if there is an allegation no matter how slim there should be some time of increased attention to this issue.

Even the local “newspapers” her raise questions about the creation of a rape culture at the high school, and as with any resident in Oak Park, Il it makes one wonder how long has this been going on? If we know that there were at least “several” other offenders involved with this allegation why are they still allowed to go to school with other potential victims? With the other allegations, what has happened with those offenders are they still involved with Oak Park River Forest High School?

Also if the school is waiting for the Police Department to complete their investigation how are they handling the integration of these offenders into the general student population at the school? What new methods or procedures is the school going to put into place to protect future victims of sexual assault in the future? It seems to me that both entities (OPPD and OPRFHS) are to blame in keeping this culture continuing, not to mention the offenders involved. And the kids are only going to follow the direction of the grownups and those who are in charge and deliver out the consequences of their actions if there are no immediate consequences then why should they worry or change? So if Oak Park, Il is interested in creating a bunch of rapists they are doing a good job! Ha! Oak Park, IL created cul da secs decades ago because they feared the crime from the Austin area spilling into their little community, probably because they wanted to create a culture of veil on their own!

Here is the article from the local newspaper that brings up more questions regarding this incident:

Here is the Change.org petition sign off against the rape culture that the Oak Park River Forest High School is inept in protecting and the Oak Park Police Department is slow to putting an end to:
