Congratulations on making a post that is virtually unsearchable.

I expect this to be double posted (due to failed searches) within 10 days.

Neat post though. Maybe add some description or analysis inside the comments to at least give a hope for the already handicapped search.

My musical sensibilities are piqued, but my lack of interest in clicking blind links prevails. Anyone more adventurous/generous with their time want to try a summary?

Ahhh! Even the punctuation is different links.

Dreama - not music, just making Chicago a greener city.

Sheesh. Tough crowd. Links are all work safe and only one is flash (squish). Content is Chicago-centric (the city, not the musical) and revolves around the new park, the "green"-ness of the city and such. Apologies for the lack of use of the title tag in the hrefs.

Shoepal, you RAWK! As an architect who moved away from Chicago in the 90s because nothing interesting was really happening (ya'll archinuts in the house will remember the black tuesday, in which SOM laid off like 1000 of us?) I am TOTALLY kicking myself for moving the NYC. MAN! I mean, I know Daley's an egomaniac who aspires to Robert Moses-ian heights, but maybe he ain't all that bad.

That bean is the coolest thing in the world; from now on every city hall in the country with a flat roof should be REQUIRED to do put in LEED certified rooves on their buildings. REquired i tellsya!

By the way, Chicago hot dogs really are the best in the world, too. Goddam it now you've made me all nostalgiac!

Glad you enjoyed the post, DenOfSizer.

the bean is so much more amazing than i'd expected and the face-fountains are remarkably non-cheesy in person. . . . i just wish the garden didn't have the cages.

actually, chicago has a lot of parks (back in the really old days that' how most of the neighborhoods got their names), but the greening of the city goes further than that. we've even got a nonprofit that exists primarily to turn the highway embankments into parks.
