Here's a list of some people/things I think are cool and/or smart:
My Mom. And my Dad. Anthony Bourdain. Sarah Silverman. Joe Maddon and Rick Renteria — and not in that order. Bruce Springsteen. Michelle Obama — Barack, too. Haruki Murakami. Richard Pryor. Chicago, IL. Chicago Italian beefs — juicy, with hot and sweet peppers, preferably from Johnnie's, with an Italian ice on a hot summer day. Dave Chang. Seinfeld (My favorite episode is "The Little Kicks", with Kramer's friend, Brody). Daniel Boulud. The Dude and Walter. Spike Lee. Sonny Rollins. Shel Silverstein. Nas. Louis C.K. Lebron James. Mike Royko. American-made Fender Telecasters. A proper Chicago hot dog. New Orleans, the greatest city on earth. The cast and writers of Fargo. Roger Ebert's movie reviews. Townes Van Zandt. Boers and Bernstein. Solomon Burke. Jaques Pepin. Miles Davis. David Brooks. The UK Office. My barber, Chris. Anyone that appreciates a perfectly cooked, medium-rare cheeseburger that is dressed properly. And by properly, I mean it better taste good.
I'll stop there, but I could keep going.
