808s Update: see the new music video - Oogaluu!

This video – a form of upbeat hip hop – ought to resonate with many audiences. Its also neat to see that many parts of the video is shot in Rogers Park, and that many of the youth appearing in the video are local 808s dancers. I am extraordinarily proud of the 808s dancers, and I encourage everyone who likes this video to forward the link to others, and, if you feel inclined, to LIKE it. Let's help make this video go a bit, uh, viral! How exciting to see local young folks, the 808s dancers, making a name as hip hop musicians as well as well as leaders of a dance troupe for local youth. I encourage the community to support their apparent goal of using art and creative expression to convey a positive, upbeat message. Tic tic tic tic. Oogaluu!

North of Howard Run Too Scary for Me

Realizing that running in a 100-year-old cemetery is not an activity for the faint of heart, I immediately reversed course, departing the Cemetery. “Far too scary” I said to myself. “Not a good idea to run this far north of Howard.” Along the pathway back to my car, and out of harm’s way, I decided to take a breather at a local park located in the northwest corner of the North of Howard neighborhood called Triangle Park.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
