"I AM MOVING HOUSE..."

2012-09-30T12:46:25.079-07:00

Psst! I've a new home in the blogosphere, and that new home is at AmyGuth.com. There you'll find all (okay most) archived posts from this blog, along with sidebar links to find my quick-and-easy Posterous blogs. Shortly, I will redirect amyguth.com/blog to land on the new blog instead of this one, but felt the need to give a heads up first, rather than just pulling a switcheroo. Onward,



"STEP UP TO THE MICROPHONE"

2011-05-20T15:36:08.998-07:00

Chicago, Printers Row Lit Fest has asked RUI: Reading Under The Influence back for a second year. Under the influence, you shall hear your friendly co-hosts follow our format and read published and original work. We'll also give away reading material. Last year: used and long-loved, old paperbacks. This year? Smutty harlequin novels? Pulp fiction? Who knows. Show up, drink, check it out, make

Is it right to be glad about a death? No. Is it okay to joke through heavy subjects? You bet. Here are some clever fake-Osamas in action on Twitter.[View the story "Fake Osama tweets" on Storify]

"NATURE IS A LANGUAGE, CAN'T YOU READ"

2010-12-23T08:39:23.604-08:00

Working on a list of books for Tribune readers to enjoy and read to have a really great year ahead and stick to their resolutions, I spent some time this afternoon digging through "how to" books. In doing so, I found the following titles I thought I would share:"How to Shit in the Woods, Second Edition: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art"by Kathleen Meyer"How to Survive a Garden

"TO THE MICROPHONE"

2010-11-16T15:47:33.133-08:00

There is one thing better than getting a first job in radio.Getting a second job in radio.This past weekend marked one year of ChicagoNow Radio. My co-host Alex Quigley and I were not the original hosts. Quigley and I started hosting the show together in late April, though he hosted it a while before I came along. Every Saturday morning, the two of us interviewed bloggers from the ChicagoNow blog

2010-09-22T16:54:03.888-07:00

I wrote today about the verbs of technology. It'll but online later this week.Today though, I have a piece I can share: Dear Diary, why do I write? with a bonus link at the end bearing a list of 6 diaries to read right now. Yesterday, I asked my coworkers "What did you read this summer?" and was delighted by their answers.

New pretties at work, chiefly the new books page, and the new Printers Row blog. Migrating it all over was a beast, to be sure, and a beast that is yet to be totally tamed. But, brick by brick, I'm getting it all shipshape.Rosh HaShanah was lovely, though I felt like I slid into the homeplate of the new year rather than carefully prepared in years past. Whatever, I moved, so I was prepared for



"OH, I REALY DON'T KNOW..."

2010-10-03T12:11:07.740-07:00

Dumb at football. That’s me. Though, maybe not for long.But, no, actually, this notion has made me a fibber already. I’m not really dumb, of course. Not literally, not partially, not even a bit. What I am, though, is underexposed as a mofo to football.Other than golf, I didn’t grow up in a sports house. The sports I did watch, I watched solo. I conceptualized each as a quiet something one does. (

In discussion places where clutter accumulates in the workplace, I found this item and loved it (and not just for the workplace, either):Language. Using buzz-words and let-met-try-to-impress-you language in your writing and speech can cause confusion, reduce productivity, and waste resources. A good rule of thumb is that if you can find the phrase in Unsuck-It‘s dictionary, you should think



"I'M PACKED, I AM MOVING HOUSE" Part 2

2010-08-18T08:24:47.645-07:00

I moved. This is my western view at night. I am happy about this. More pics when I unpack.

2010-08-15T10:15:46.767-07:00

I'm moving. And in ruthless mode today, here in the final throes of it. I have the following stuff in Ravenswood/South Lincoln Square that can't come with me to my new house. Come get it.IKEA espresso desk: Was asking $90, now asking $60 or best offer. See pic here.Executive office chair: Black vinyl leather-look executive chair. Was asking $35, now asking $25 or best offer. See pic on my ZooZag

Word up, party people.New hair. Stripes. I like. Very summery. And something different, which I always like.Check this thing out: IWriteLike. I have to call a bit of shenanigans, though, because in a recent story I wrote about a dude trippin' out on heavy sedatives, it pointed to Stephen King. In the weirdest short fiction I've written at all lately, if not ever, full of Robbins-esque made-up



"A RUSH AND A PUSH AND THE LAND THAT WE STAND ON IS OURS"

2010-07-10T17:38:56.285-07:00

Holy cats! Here's what I've been up to lately:I read the lyrics to "There is a Light that Never Goes Out" by The Smiths in an Orange Alert podcast celebrating the anniversary of the release of the The Queen Is Dead album. This delighted me, of course.I was quoted on the Tribune travel blog about whassamattah with airlines, along with several of my colleagues here.I read at the Ipsento Cafe series

We all have our various go-to social networks. And, sometimes, we don't realize that a person who sent a friend request on Facebook is @SoandSo on Twitter and so on and so forth. So, here are the social networks I use most. Let's all link up, shall we?TwitterI use @amyguth and I operate the @ChiTribBooks and @PrintersRowFest twitter accounts, and co-operate the @ChicagoNowRadio twitter account



"NEWS ON THE RADIO, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

Happy Birthday to the Ringleader of the Tormentors.



"SISTER I'M A POET"

2010-04-15T17:04:06.826-07:00

I would like to take just a moment to applaud UbyKotex's advertising campaign for the smart-assery involved in subverting the smile-and-dance-in-all-white feminine hygiene product commercials, which have long been both completely out of touch with reality and completely absurd.Embedding is disabled by the marketers so head to YouTube to watch So Obnoxious and Reality Check.

"NEWS ON THE RADIO HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

2010-04-14T18:52:24.007-07:00

I put an end to my unfortunate habit of being a birthday downplayer. I celebrated quite well this year. I prefer celebratory.

When I think salsa, I do not think about ferrets. Until now.
