I’m never gonna dance again Guilty feet have got no rhythm Though it’s easy to pretend I know you’re not a fool Should’ve known better than to cheat a friend And waste the chance that I’ve been given So I’m never gonna dance again The way I danced with you.

Daily Hottie – Liz Phair

November 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s Music Monday here at the Daily Hottie.  As we are all things Midwest around here it seemed to make a lot of sense to me to go with Chicago’s very own Liz Phair. While she wasn’t born here, she was raised in Winnetka and graduated New Trier High School in 1985.  She was involved in student government, was on the yearbook committee, and ran cross country.  In short, she was a normal kid. Her career was what being in the music business used to be like before American Idol ...Click for More

Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself because I love you, yes, I do. And when you give me that pretty little pout, it turns me inside out. There’s something about you, baby, I don’t know. Isn’t it amazing a man like me can feel this way, tell me how much longer, it could grow stronger every day. Oh, how much longer? James Taylor It’s amazing how the Bears beating even a terrible team like the Vikings makes the cold a little less cold.  We have our ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Elizabeth Banks

November 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s finally Friday y’all (wait that’s Southern).  It’s finally Friday yous guys (there, that’s more Chicagoan).  Last week I tried forever Friday and had Audry Hepburn as the daily hottie.  About 4 of you clicked on the article so I need to change it up.  Friday’s new theme is based on the 1980’s song by The Cure.   For our first Friday I’m in love daily hottie I could think of none better than Elizabeth Banks.  She got on my radar on ...Click for More

It’s Throwback Thursday time and today we are going to hop in the way back machine and set it for the year 1987.  Why 1987 you may ask.  Well, it’s the year I graduated high school so why not. Throwback Thursday 1987   World Events Me graduating high school almost made the top 10 list coming in at number 11.  Here’s what else was going on back in 1987. 1.  Dow Jones tops 2,000 for the first time and then drops 22.6% on “Black Monday” 2.  Gallon of gas ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Julie Bowen

November 13, 2014 // 0 Comments

Thursdays daily hottie is all about actresses that have made their living on television, sort of a TV Thursday if you will.  I can’t think of a better actress to feature on TV Thursday than Julie Bowen. She’s been in a bunch of my favorite shows – Ed, Boston Legal, Lost, and Modern Family.  Just being on even one of those shows would be impressive. Julie is originally from Baltimore, Maryland.  On an it’s all about the Midwest, one of her great great grandfathers was ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Claire Coffee

November 12, 2014 // 0 Comments

Today’s daily hottie theme is Wildcard Wednesday where any hot female anywhere is fair game.  I thought about going with an Olympic athlete today, but as I just watched Grimm on my DVR yesterday, you get Claire Coffee. Claire Coffee is originally from San Francisco and is 34 years old.  She did attend good old Northwestern University right here in the Chicago area (one of our other writers is also a Northwestern Grad – ask him about it if you have an hour to spare sometime). She ...Click for More

Trashy Tuesday – Pamela Anderson

November 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

So sticking with a theme, Tuesday’s will be “Trashy Tuesdays”.  You know celebrities that are a mess or that are hot or just a hot mess.  In that vain we’ll start Trashy Tuesday with maybe the trashiest of all – Pamela Anderson. It’s funny reading her Wikipedia Page which lists her as a model, author, activist, and former showgirl.  Pretty much the same path as Jane Austin or Maya Angelou I’m sure. Pamela Anderson was the originator of the sex tape, ...Click for More

Simpsons Futurama Crossover Opens Old Wounds

November 10, 2014 // 0 Comments

Did you watch The Simpsons Futurama crossover last night? I did. It was on before the Bears started playing so I watched this before tuning in to the Bears debacle. Overall, I didn’t think it was bad. There was one thing they did in this episode though that I know I’m not the only one to see it. The Simspons Futurama crossover opened an old wound for Futurama fans last night. Here is the scene. Be warned, if you are a Futurama fan, you will know exactly what this is and you are ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Taylor Swift

November 10, 2014 // 0 Comments

Again, going with themes for The Daily Hottie.  Monday’s will be Music Mondays and feature a hot musician.  So let’s start with none other than Taylor Swift. It doesn’t really appear that Taylor has really had that much of a struggle in the music business.  She moved from Pennsylvania to Nashville in 2003 and by 2006 had released her first album that had a two songs that reached No. 1 on the country charts. The only real knock on Taylor is her inability to keep a man.  ...Click for More
