Google Plus wallpaper collections for Oak Park, IL

I dumped some wallpaper to a google plus collection for public use.

“Security in Oak Park, IL wallpaper”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/U84UEE

“Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/suYVEE

The first collection of wallpaper I have posted in the collections selection of Google Plus I called “Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”. This is a sarcastic group collection of wallpapers for your computer (PC/MAC) regarding Security issues in Oak Park, Illinois. As I have posted on the blog before, the entities from building management companies, to the OP police department treat security issues and threats as if they have better things to do, like watch paint dry. Therefore, this collection is more of a statement towards the ones that don’t give a shit about you while you travel, rent, own or patron anything in Oak Park, IL your dollars are greatly not appreciated and Oak Park, Il could give a flying fig if you are butt hurt about it.

The second collection is called “Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”. What it is, is a collection of sarcastic wallpapers giving Oak Park IL both fingers up. I recreated a photo I once saw and crafted a template around it telling Oak Park, Il where the fuck to go. This is how most people feel half the time when dealing with such everyday Oak Park, Il issues like parking or taxes. Fuck them Fuck the people in Oak Park, Il who make your life miserable.

Enjoy Bitches.

Google Plus photo collections for Oak Park, IL

I saved some more photos to a Google Plus collection for public use.

“The Forest Park, IL various photos collection”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/84YWJE

“Construction in Oak Park, Illinois” various photos collection: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/wgeVJE

The First collection is my first photo dump of Some of the things in Forest Park, IL nothing really major, just some of the stuff I have talked about in the previous blogs, like FP police, Bed Bath and Beyond, but now including the Repainted Forest Park Circle Avenue bridge next to the Ferrera Pan factory. I took most of the photos travelling through the suburb so they were taken quite quickly, I am just glad they were in focus!

The second one is a photo dump of the Construction near Lake Street and Harlem Avenue, especially near the Marion Avenue side street and adjacent parking lots. Just took a bunch of pictures as I walked through one day onto my way to Jerusalem Café which I talk about in my Yelp reviews.

Again, I took the photos for public consumption use anywhere or anyhow that you may. Bitches.

 

Oak Park, IL related: Travelling down Roosevelt to Harlem Avenue from Des Plaines Ave

Whoa so I was running around from get together to get together and it is bad enough I have to travel through Forest Park, IL to get back to Oak Park, IL but now there are extras to make the traffic issues even worse in which suburbs like that aforementioned busy enough but these two added aspects just make it stupid. Traffic issues there are never really addressed but somehow the local governments like to add to the misery of all those who travel in their suburban streets. And somehow the residents of these suburbs just remain silent as unwarranted changes occur all around them. It seems everyone just grumbles about it however when the opportunities to cause change, such as when election season comes about they vote the same way they did before. And in turn giving those idiots in charge a blank check or an arousing “yes” to doing something even more stupid, one wonders when will change occur and what will be enough?

First, of all there is the construction on Roosevelt Avenue from Harlem avenue to Des Plaines Ave, everything is whittled down to a single lane for a while grinding the traffic down to a crawl. All I can really see the construction crews are doing is redoing the sidewalks on each side with new concrete and red decorative bricks. All this bullshit for something that does not help the traffic issues that plague this street.

Roosevelt and Harlem Avenues, of course, are boundary streets of Oak Park, IL and further, the angry drivers feel as they enter the suburb. As if the small parks with parents who let their toddlers slowly walk across the small narrow side streets isn’t enough now you have drivers who have been pissed off even more to this craziness on the suburban borders. I think that these two suburbs should be more concerned about the traffic issues and finding ways to encouraging people to patron the small businesses in this area. However, all this construction does the opposite.

Second, even though it is the Labor Day weekend, there are a lot of cops in this area particularly, the Forest Park, IL cops who cannot wait to give tickets …just because they are bored. Their added presence is supposed to bring “law and order” which is just code for legal disruption of citizens’ daily activities as they travel from point A to point B. Now everyone knows once normal people see the police all of the sudden people want to do under the speed limit and drive like grandmas.

Which sounds great but at the same time is just as bad as the construction on Roosevelt avenue, and can make your trip three times as long due the presence of law enforcement. As I rolled into the Walmart in Forest Park, IL I did notice that once the cops disappeared on a side street from Roosevelt Avenue that traffic started moving a little bit more smoothly. Instead of directing traffic to overcome the issues of the construction the Forest Park, IL police are always adding to the problem, that is if they are not window shopping in Bed Bath and Beyond.

Here is a possible detour map to miss all this traffic and headache:

Oak Park related: Happy Birthday to my “brother”!

To my brother in sin, and anguish Ma Pro happy birthday today and hopefully many more! I have realized how to keep my social media presence to a minimum and eliminate the number of stalkers I have or may have due to him. There are still the idiots who I still have to get back to like on Twitter telling me about their expert opinion of Hemingway (which a lot of people questioned) to creeps who wanted to “hookup” and wanted me to respond to their Instant message immediately and call me a “bitch” because I didn’t. Both could not be as bold in person, on the street, in person without help. But that is beside the point.

When I wanted to fly off and get crazy this was the dude who was like “they are just “jealous” or “have some type of mommy issues” so just ignore them…” in one word: wisdom. Sometimes you cannot allow people who think they are invincible online and want to say whatever to you to get you triggered. And this dude who is FAR more Westside than I am, cooled me off (with the longest tongue I have seen) to get back to business, enjoying the summer and partying than simple little issues.

Plus, when I have tech issues or dealing with Google’s shady shit it is great to have a person who can be a great resource and can reread all the legal crap over and over again till we look at each other like “wtf”?  Thanks, Ma Pro!

The wallpapers are for you xoxos!

LOL

Yeah, Ma Pro fuck you too!

Oak Park, Il blog related: Back to school

I am back in school for the time being taking about two classes or I have a full-time schedule for the next two terms, this way I can get done with school get the Masters degree in line with getting done with Oak Park, IL tons of writing means I will probably spend more time in front of the computer instead of outside whiffing in the smells of dog shit and pompous attitudes in the great outdoors.

I might use the extra money and or time to get myself ready for another move and update my furniture to things that are more functional and durable. This way it will not break down either inside just be used or during a move like my four-drawer dresser from Ikea. The movers just turned that thing from a thing of beauty to Frankenstein’s monster in less than a couple of hours. Mind you I waxed and shined that thing for a good 8 months and was very careful in using it.

Now one of the drawers’ outer face is scratched and another drawer is just smashed to pieces. That is why I am dipping into my drinking fund to get it right this time, ha-ha I guess I am “growing up” but I just want to make sure that I am not doubling my expenses just to make the apartment look cute in such a shitty suburb. With that in mind, i am going to max out on Bed Bath and Beyond coupons on the sturdy shit, instead of on candles.

I already took the advice of some of my buddies and looked into Ethan Allen (2k for a dresser!) but I am not that interested in that type of investment unless I am certain I am staying in the state. The amount of taxes that are going into effect especially very soon, like getting a house or a condo less of a sure thing than ever.

Therefore, keeping my head down and getting back into the swing of writing for school to finish that up and also to get back in practice of writing for the blog will be more of my focus …well, unless there is a two for one or free drinks option somewhere. Then I will happily fall off the wagon. Toodles.

My new tape recorder/converter to mp3 is keeping me out of trouble in Oak park, IL

I am sitting here with my new tape recorder it translates the music to a mp3. It gives me something to focus on when coming back home to Oak Park, Il the traffic drives me nuts as is, and the neighbors that want to be my friend or get in my personal business to the point of giving “advice” to me but I really don’t care. So, with this thing, since I am not in school I am either enjoy summer activities, being at work or Some shit.

Therefore, now I got this as a project I have a “go to” to get out of tons of dumb shit. Old lady lectures, dumb social engagements or just plain ass wasting time like a dumbass. The chaos of the village can really depress the shit out of you to the point you are in a rut and you cannot do anything or accomplish crap.

This place is simply demoralizing lol Luckily there are other things to do in the area but Since I rather not spend my rent money on keeping myself entertained I got this thing to transfer old mix tapes to mp3s, old lectures from School to tapes that were made by family and friends.

I rather keep busy and out of trouble instead of being on the mean streets of Oak Park Il navigating too small for traffic streets and riding slowly behind little old ladies who cannot travel the speed limit if their lives depended on it. Seriously. This new project is an overwhelming or going to overtake what I can do for the blog.

Also on a side note, I already have a bunch of Halloween themed posts ready for the month of October ready. Scheduled and ready to post I am also working on wallpapers for that holiday for the blog and my FB account. I get tired of the same old shit that is supposed to be for kids only here in Oak Park, Il

Hence I am thinking about maybe going or having a party during the Halloween week/weekend. I am not really sure because I am taking a full schedule to get done with school. I start the fall 2017 term in two days so I want everything to go smoothly. Hopefully, without my new old ass neighbor being busy, I can get this all done without a lot of interruptions but alas that is Oak Park, Il full of shenanigans ready to screw your world up.

Oak Park, Il related: Reviews on Google and Yelp

I have been updating the Google account for Oak Park, Il blog, specifically, google maps because you can review businesses and restaurants just like Yelp.com. Since I am already on yelp I am copying and pasting the reviews from Yelp to Google. This way I am consistent across the board with what I am saying about my experiences in Oak Park, Il and elsewhere. I am no nonsense with the reviews so I hope you enjoy them.

I am trying to keep all the accounts from Google/Blogger/Maps to WordPress to Yelp all on the same wavelength not being a major corporation it is very hard to keep all these social media sites plus Facebook together and on the same point. It is fairly simple once you get in a groove and keep all the outside noise out.

These are a basic simple guideline list on how I am doing the review thingee I am talking about:

  • log into both yelp and google
  • open up your account on yelp to reviews
  • open up google maps
  • copy the information from yelp (business name, address)
  • put it in google maps search
  • click onto the right business information on google
  • scroll down to write a review click it
  • just copy and paste the review from yelp to google

Sorry, it has some holes not my thing to create lists like this!

Oak Park, IL blog on Instagram? Nope

Someone asked me about Oak Park, Il blog on Instagram, so I should answer if the blog would ever be on there. Never say never but at this point it’s never. The Oak Park, IL blog is on WordPress, Blogger/Google, I have a Facebook account and a Twitter account (which I am barely on due to stalkers) since this is more about me giving the middle finger to Oak Park, IL than a business or me being obsessive. In other words, there is really no need for an Instagram account for Oak Park, IL LOL

I am not narcissistic nor do I feel I should give this village an avenue for more positive bullshit, that an Instagram account would espouse. In every publication or social media venue than Oak Park, IL has it’s all smiles and fake shit anyway, I know isn’t that what Instagram all about? But that is not what this is about at all. All I got to say is be glad there are actual amateur pictures of the shitty little village.

And if you wonder “Oh what you look like? all I see are photos that are adjusted in some way…” again I know how pervs are and also if wanted the attention I would hang with my friends and/or family, peeps. To me, the business here is about keeping it focused on Oak Park, IL the stuff that is usually not negatively associated with it. And remember Instagram is only for 24 hours! All these blogs I have written would before shit, I think the fucks in Oak Park, IL would love that! Therefore, Instagram + Oak Park, IL is a no go.

Instagram is down, yeah no thanks:

Oak Park, IL Blog wallpaper

I made a couple more wallpapers for the blog, just logo (text) wallpaper, keeping it plain and simple, but also giving the posts the needed “color” without worrying about taking pictures or hunting for images all day. I find that these simple wallpapers as help when I promote the blog on other sites.

This “branding” not only makes it easier for me to focus on content but also is a great lesson in marketing. I see why big corporations put their names everywhere because it lessens the need for spending money or time on graphics or anything to unnecessary or over the top. I know one of the things I have been critical of oak park, Il about is not focusing upon practical issues and solutions.

Therefore, these simple text wallpapers are the epitome of that belief and strategy. I must say although they will be simple I will add a sense of humor to them as well. Enjoy. https://plus.google.com/u/0/102222691833581930279/posts/jVBFAiJUH91

Oak Park, IL -Fourth of July: Best place for actual fireworks in this area is in Berwyn, not Oak Park, Il

Oh Man, I as I said in a previous post I hope Oak Park, Il had a better fourth of July parade. Mainly when you think of Fourth of July you think of “fireworks” that is not in the competencies of Oak Park, IL. The video I posted on youtube.com should show it is great for kids and that is about it. Not for drivers, adults (well maybe pedo bears) but not the explosiveness display most people like to see. Well, I did not go this year because of that, in fact, I went to my friend Sarah’s place in Berwyn, because Berwyn, Il has fireworks!

We were on the rooftop of her apartment building watching a clear view of the fireworks from Morton High School on Harlem Ave. I think she took video stingy ass. I was getting lit and trying not to fall off the damn roof. But it was a better alternative than running all the way to downtown Chicago or being with a ton of kids and pedos trying to get my drink on.

Therefore if you want to see a really Fourth of July celebration and see fireworks but do not want to get shot in Chi-Iraq I recommend this avenue of celebration INSTEAD of the one in Oak Park, IL if you are of the grown-up variety, Got kids though? stay in Oak Park, IL

Please note: I do know Oak Park, IL has fireworks at their high school as well, but I am factoring in also the times that were given: 7 pm (Berwyn) vs dusk-ish (Oak Park, IL); then adding the factors of traffic and transportation and things to do in that area afterwards. Oak Park, Il is really lacking in those areas I have mentioned in the latter.
