Tyler Knight Burn My Shadow Book Review

Tyler Knight -Burn My Shadow [Book Review] Written by Hector De La Rosa    @Here_2_Edutain_

Tyler Knight discovers his inner Finding Forrester; inviting readers and fanatics to his private life’s Champagne Room dominating the bed room scene with vivid concupiscent description that shames every character in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
He does this with Burn My Shadow- a folklore of porn-landia while acknowledging his alter ego in adult entertainment whereas scorning it; desiring it to burn or fade away as if it were to never exist.Knight’s life is about survival of the fittest and that takes skill. It arouses curiosity about the life of a porn star from humble beginnings to fame, deeply penetrates the walls of the cerebrum on how the heartless business can damage the psyche, and squirts with triumph in the book’s end. 
Tyler Knight sets the new standard for pornographic biographies serving more of a sophisticated and informative work of genius than a mere collection of rumors and …

Macy’s Annual Black History Month Celebration and Panel Discussion Written by Aaron Robinson 

Macy’s Annual Black History Month Celebration and panel discussion was a night to remember while taking place in the Downtown Chicago Macy’s on State Street in the Narcissus Room. At this casual and exciting occasion where hors d’oeuvre and refreshments were elegantly served, love and inspiration filled the room as Jay Ellis (actor), BJ The Chicago Kid (singer/songwriter) and Jocelyn Delk Adams (blogger/author) stopped by for a powerful and inspiring conversation with Chicago’s own Robin Robinson concerning how a strong connection to heritage and creative self-expression has shaped their careers. Young poets kicked off the event, as it was opened by a video showing of singer-songwriter and poet Saul Williams.
“Trust what you know,” express the Three-time Grammy nominee and Southside native of Chicago, BJ The Chicago Kid, who has been featured on tracks by Dr. Dre, Kanye West, and Schoolboy Q’s …

HOLY COW!CUBS WIN!CUBS WIN!
Written by Eric Plaut


“Holy Cow!Cubs win!Cubs win!” We all remember that battle-cry the late Harry Caray used to shout out after a Chicago Cubs victory. With his thick glasses and his enthusiasm, one would have thought Harry’s beloved Cubs clinched a Game 7 World Series win. While Harry Caray may be gone, his spirit was definitely there during the 2016 World Series. To all those Chicago Cubs fans out there—the miracle of miracles happened on November 2, 2016. The Cubs, after a 108-year absence, are back on top of the baseball world after defeating the Cleveland Indians in seven games! The so-called curse of the Billy Goat has finally ended, even though you can always go to that namesake restaurant in the Windy City for a legendary “cheezbooga”. If the Boston Red Sox can be free of the Curse of the Bambino (Babe Ruth) after an 86-year title drought, then so can the Cubs! A lot has happened in the past 108 years. In 1908, Henry Ford began the first of twenty year…
