Multi-Media MoFo

June 17th, 2010 by Rami

Usually the glossy industry rags are full of ladder-climbing execs posing with Grammy winning artists, or some hard-hitting "newsy" pieces about some rap-rocker saving some puppies or something. Lots of insider back-slapping that the regular Joe never sees (nor would want to).

Retail Pete Goes to the Gories

"We are spoiled here in Chicago. Rarely is it a question of IF there's a
