Svengoolie 40th anniversary

Finally the Chicago icon Svengoolie (Rich Koz) is going to be honored for his 40 years of broadcast infamy the City Council of Chicago, not Berwyn will be congratulating him on his most amazing accomplishment. His original set is of course at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in downtown Chicago. This icon has made Halloween and B-grade horror movies cool for generations and is finally getting his due.

It’s a shame that Berwyn did not honor this legend in the same vein as how Oak Park, forgets some of their other famous sons and daughters. It has to be a suburb thing. But Chicago is taking advantage of this slip up and hosting an event at the Museum to honor him on October 26th so if you want to go to something cool before Halloween here you go.

The impeccable Svengoolie is also on MEtv on Saturdays and Sundays hosting B-movies to the delight of his fan base and the occasional viewer. MEtv is also celebrating Svengoolie’s accomplishment by selling 40th anniversary T-shirts on their website.

Here is the link describing the upcoming event:

Oak Park, IL is just shitty compared to other burbs

After the shit on Friday, I was like I will hang with my friend Sarah on the weekend and I was like in heaven, it was nice out and very quiet in her area. Now I see why Svengoolie always says “Berwyn” people are not up your ass being noisy and wanting to tell you what to do. The big plus also there is that I saw maybe one person walking their dog in a 5 block radius, wherein Oak Park, Il you cannot even go outside into the courtyard to see a dog and its owner. Oh also to step in dog shit.

The neighbors are quiet in her apartment building, I would characterize their behavior as if almost like they were trying to avoid contact with other people. We took out the garbage went to a local bar, okay, okay, two local bars “persuasion” and another one (too lit sorry). We picked up some White Castles after we got wasted and it tasted like mana from God, it was so good. It was crazy because there were businesses that were open past 10 pm!

Like for adults to actually go and hang out, unlike Oak Park, IL where the commercial businesses are aimed towards kids and retirees. I think the only issues was the town-wide 25 mph speed limit because as you know going through Oak Park, IL even in daylight is boring as fuck, so most of the time you like to speed through to get that drive and life experience over with.

In fact, to get a White Castle to steady the mixed drinks we were getting when we were drinking at my place in Oak Park, IL (because they are no real hangouts after 10 pm) we would have to travel through Most of Oak Park, IL, River Forest and part of Melrose Park, Il to get a few freaking burgers. Therefore, comparing Berwyn, IL (made famous by the Wayne’s World movie) to Oak Park, IL is comparing Apples to Cranberries for fun stuff to do if you are between 20 to 60 years old.

Hell, I know 68 years olds who like to get a great hot cheeseburger at 11 pm at night, so yes, Oak Park, Il is lame as shit. Rent elsewhere, own property elsewhere, party elsewhere just do everything elsewhere, like getting laid; Oak Park, Il is just shitty.
