What To Do When You Can’t Control Your Circumstances

By Josh Hanagarne,

Long story short, I am dealing with a horrible case of Tourette’s Syndrome that has resurfaced with a bang after years of being more dormant.

It causes me to injure myself in a lot of different ways, none of them on purpose. But so what? Hopelessness and misery are beneath me, and they are beneath you as well.

Things that used to put me on my back and cripple me are now just making me irritated and productive. Mainly because I have learned to love a good fight.

We all have situations that feel intolerable. Pains that we would rather not bear and can’t figure out. The good news is, anyone can learn to deal with situations and circumstances that they can’t control. You can do it too.

Introduce something that you can control

For me this has meant lifting weights, exercising with kettlebells, learning the guitar, and pushing myself in extreme ways. Anything for a victory. Anything that improves me.

I have no control over the chemicals in my brain. I have no control over my genetics. Those are fights I can’t win unless I choose the battlefield.

When you cannot control a situation, you must introduce elements that you can control. If you build up enough small victories, they’ll trump whatever big setbacks you have.

Things are never so bad that they can’t improve.

Do whatever it takes, but do something. If you are sad, scared, bored, unhealthy, or angry, take steps and do something.

Refuse to be miserable.

Refuse to give in.

Grind your teeth and smile.

Put your head down and do something.

I’ll be doing the same and we’ll eventually be better for it.

Labor Day Play List, Put Your Work In

In honor of Labor Day weekend I am giving you eight songs about working. This list could easily have been a hundred songs long so please add your own in the comments.

Tennesse Ernie Ford - 16 Tons

The list starts with 16 Tons. Of all the many kinds of dangerous, unrewarding and onerous types of manual labor few are more infamous than working in a coal mine, and there is not a better or more known coal mining song than 16 Tons

Desmond Dekker and The Haitians - The Isrealites

Labor as Desmond Dekker thinks of it is not for money, luxury or comfort. "Get up in the morning slaving for bread sir." This song also marks what will be a theme in this list of labor and the plight of the laborer leading to crime.

Masta Ace - On Da Grind

"Is anybody out there on the grind like me?" Its funny how work can make you feel like a mindless cog in a larger machine and at the same time isolated from that machine. But more than a protest against work this song is a cadence for Masta Ace to work to. it's not just about being on the grind its that I'm still on the grind.

Cake - Opera Singer

Ok, an opera singer is a ways from a coal miner, but this song is ultimately about work and how a person profession can define her, or in this case him. "I am an opera singer."

Animals - House of the Rising Sun

While the language in this song is moody and suggestive and this version is sung by a man this song is ultimately about prostitution. The House is a bawdy house. The work is the worlds oldest profession.

Ella Fitzgerald - Love for Sale

Men are not the only ones who labor, and all those who work (male, female or otherwise) have at some point felt as though they were selling themselves. It's that feeling of giving too much of what we to the boss, business or consumer that makes this kind of work a metaphor for all kinds of work.

Sam Cooke - Chain Gang

Sam Cooke took his inspiration for a labor song from prison laborers.

Long John

But, with all respect to Sam Cooke, this is the sound of the men working on the chain gang.

What did I miss? Please, add your suggestions in the comments below.

Tweets and T-Shirts

Noel Burkman and his partners started the website Coin That Phrase in July. Since then his products have been nominated for a Chicago Innovation Award, put in the Emmy Gift Bag, and stood at the center of a growing online community. But, what those products are, is hard to explain. I'll let Noel do it.

Full disclosure: I was offered a free T-shirt for doing this interview, but I probably would have done the interview anyway. Photo Credit:

Allow Me to Re-Introduce Myself

This post will cover murderous crack addicts, benign Bouncers, and the ego of a graffiti writer, if you want to skip to the crack heads just play the audio.

Good Morning this is Casey Brazeal for North and Clark. An interview blog that "holds a microphone to Chicagoans who don't often make the media spotlight" (Gapers Block). I am writing this page because I have been getting a lot of new visitors lately and also been seeing some traffic from Site Sketch 101, where I recently wrote an article. If you've never been here before enjoy, if you have think of this like a clip show or Christmas special.

Full Interview

This comes from anthropologist, emerald enthusiast, and my brother Professor Brian Brazeal. The experiences and world Brian talks about in our interview is so distant from anything I have heard about from anyone else -- I had to feature some of his audio here.

Full Interview

Peter Chavez got a scholarship to college through Graffiti, that's not a misprint. He's a graphic designer now. Peter and I sat down at the Borders on Michigan Avenue and talked about his life for an hour, I could have easily stayed for three.

Full Interview

Finally this is a re-edited version of one of my first interviews with my favorite bouncer Dan Jerez. He's a big man with a gentle touch, and the dude-bros of Wrigleyville are lucky to have him. Even if he is dragging them out into the street.

There are new interviews up on the site every week and posts when the mood strikes. The podcast is on itunes, @northandclark is on twitter, and I'm in Chicago. We'll be in touch.

India Pale, Belgian and Scotch Ale Right Here in Lincoln Park

Today, as promised, the recipes for the three beers that I am making or drinking right now.

First, a brief disclaimer: I didn't come up with any of these recipes on my own everything I brewed was either suggested to me or at least tweeked by the good people at Brew and Grow (Lincoln Park's friendly neighborhood brew place).

The beers are Walter's Pale Ale (after the dog), Avers Avenue (after the street), and Toad Spit Stout (after what the guy who wrote that recipe named it). As I described yesterday beer has five primary ingrediants: water, malt, grain, yeast and hops. To give you a sense of some of the different ingredients we used here is a chart.

These three beers represent a diversity of taste, body and style. So far, each of these beers has been delicious. I am not going to walk you through the steps of brewing because we got into that yesterday, but I will leave you with this picture of our first brew's namesake.

Bing Using Google Ads?

This afternoon I was astonished to find an ad for Bing in the Google Adsense Ads on my website.

When Microsoft launched Bing its search engine the target was clear. Bing is Microsoft's attempt to take some of Google huge share of the search market. It would seem like a conflict of interest for Google to take ads from its direct competitor, but I just saw one myself on this very site.

This may be a cagey move by Microsoft to use Google's own product against them. It's certainly not a strategy I have ever seen before. If instead of tech companies we were talking about entertainment this would be like Coke placing ads on Pepsi Cans or CBS shows being advertised on Fox.

I will try to update this story if I get more information.

Homemade Beer

If you can make tea, read a thermometer, or a book you can brew beer.

When I first heard of homebrewing it was from a bio-chemist and I mistakenly assumed that it was some complex and technical undertaking that only the truely dedicated could bring off. Not so. Beer is almost as fun and easy to make as it is to drink.

Beer is made out of:
-Malt (a kind of sugar)
-Hops (a bitter plant)
-Yeast (the fungus that makes bread rise)
-Grain (barley, wheat, or something else)

Besides being easy its also rewarding.

You get a lot more than a buzz out of making your own beer
-Its cheaper than buying the fine, exotic beers
-After a couple batches you'll be making beer on par with or better than anything you can buy
-Homebrewing teaches you a lot about beer
-It makes a personal gift
-It's a hobby you can have for life

My beers usually take a month or two to completely ferment and finish the brewing process. It's explained in depth here.

My home brews take about 10 steps:
1. Heat a couple gallons of water
2. Add the grains, malt and hops (these ingredients will go in at different tempatures depending on the recipe and your preference)
3. Boil
4. Cool the mixture (this liquid is often called the tea or the wort)
5. Add to three gallons of room temperature water
6. Wait a couple weeks
7. Add some finishing sugar
8. Bottle
9. Wait another week
10. Drink up!

Check this blog tomorrow for recipes I have used in batches I am brewing/drinking right now.

Electronic Waste: How Computer Screens and Circuit Boards are Poisoning Rural China

A few weeks ago North and Clark interviewed Willie Cade Founder and CEO of PCRR.  Afterwards we got a chance to speak with his daughter Amy a student at the University of Illinios who writes a blog dedicated to the topic of electronic waste.  I asked her to fill in my readers on this problem and its implications.

Waste is bad.   Electronic waste is worse. 

At the Sustainable Electronic Initiative I am trying to find out as much as I can about how much e-waste exists, how it is dealt with, who is dealing with it, and what can be done about it.  

The most important of all of the e-waste problems comes from the toxins contained in electronics, which can be released if the electronics are dismantled incorrectly.  Exposure to these toxins doesn’t usually happen here in the United States; we tend to send the electronics to places that don’t have these electronics or consume a great deal less than we do.  According to the EPA, 61% of computer screens (CRTs) and TVs collected for recycling were exported in 2005, even though this is illegal.  When they are sent for disposal overseas, they are broken down and sold for parts.  The chemicals released in informal processing are deadly.  The working conditions can be hazardous and the effects are often permanent.  

One example is the town of Guiyu, in Southern China. Eighty percent of the families that live in Guiyu work in the business of recycling electronics.  There is no environmental oversight.  This usually means open-air burning of circuit boards and other electronic components so that valuable metals can be retrieved.  A side effect of recovering silver and gold from these components is that other metals like lead, cadmium, and mercury are released into the atmosphere. 

Exposure to fumes from these chemicals has long been cited as a cause of disruptions to the function of the central nervous system.  A recent study in the Journal of Pediatrics has linked air pollution to lower IQs in children.  The people of Guiyu have significant health issues because of lead and other toxins in the air, ground, and drinking water. 

The problem of electronic waste is a huge and difficult one.  But we made the mess, and I have confidence that we can find ways to fix it.

Riot in Washington Park

Keith Fort has done a lot of shows in Chicago, and he's got about a million stories to tell.  This one is the best.

"They were up on the stage in the middle of the show and they were angry."

Graffiti and Graphic Design

Peter Chavez was a Pilsen graffiti kid. He wrote on walls, buildings, and train cars. One of those pieces of "vandalism" won him a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago. Now his writing/painting/design is more likely to be in an ad or a t-shirt than a viaduct.

This interview was recorded in a cafe and you will hear that in the background.


"(Graffiti) was something where I could have a name and be recognized"

Taste of Chicago 2009 and The Best Shows I Ever Saw

Keith Fort is the man in charge of the mainstage at the Taste of Chicago, and countless other concerts and events around the world.

In part one of this two part interview with North and Clark Keith talks about his experiences at this years taste and at some of the best shows he's ever been involved in, and when you have worked with Stevie Wonder, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, and the folks that Keith has been involved with we are talking about some great shows.

Studying Cancer, Flourecent Cells and the Life of a Research Tech

Zach's job involves the tiny tiny proteins that move human cells.  He stops by North and Clark to tell us about his work, and why its important to make proteins glow in the dark.

"You shine this infrared light on the whole body and the (cancer cells) light up."

The Power of the $150 Computer

Willie Cade and the people who work at PCRR are looking to bridge the digital divide, save the environment and get your old computer out of you attic. Just how they plan on doing that is explained in the interview below.

Wednesday Podcast: Jesse Alexander

Jesse is a transgender guy who recently changed his name and pronoun. I know Jesse because he plays drums with Tom Fort in a Chicago band I love called Cobalt and the Hired Guns. We talk about identity, changing names and the gender as a continuum.

"To use the word switching is to imply that you are one or the other."

Let's Play Two

We're still obsessed with rainouts. There has been a mountain of stuff written about the up coming Cubs Sox series, I wanted to make my own soggy day prediction.

Because today was rained out there is now the possibility of a double header, and while this may mean less money for bouncers, a double header may be good for the White Sox.

Though it pains me to say it as a White Sox fan, I think the Cubs have the better team.  Their starting staff is formidable and their lineup, while under performing, is also better than the Sox.  If there is a phase of the game that favors the White Sox it is relief pitching.  The White Sox have four legitimate big inning pitchers in their pen while the Cubs have two. 

More Innings More Relief

In a double header this advantage could mean the difference in the two games.  Relief is always an important part of baseball, but the importance of good relief is magnified in the pressure cooker of a double header, if you can’t depend on a number of different guys to take the ball a manager can find himself in tough situation.  Their are more innings to cover and so a manager needs a deeper pen.  Without a solid start a double header can turn into a long day for a team with weak relief.  

In the final measure what will really make the difference is how the players play on the day they get this game in, but if you're a White Sox fan you might want em' to play two.

We've Been Gone, But We're Coming Back

Upcoming interview podcasts to look forward to:

Wed. June 17 Jesse Alexander talks about changing his name from Alie to Jesse and his pronoun from she to he. 

Wed. June 24 Joi Podgorney explains why computers don’t have to make people lonely, and tells us how kids online communities are like summer camp.

Other interviews in the works:  Chicago ambulance driver, police officers present at the riots of '68, and local musicians.

Million Dollar Rain Out

Today the White Sox face the prospect of a rained out double header.  It’s ugly outside and it has been an extremely wet spring.  Besides having to reschedule two games, the possibility of a rain out means thousands of dollars in lost revenue for hundreds of people.   How many thousands?  Just think of how many people are affected by a rain out.

Direct Effect

The first, and most obvious loser is the team's owner.  If there is no make up date the team will be forced to host a double header (a rained out double header means two double headers). This means the team must sell twice as many tickets as they would have for individual games, essentially impossible, just to break even.   Less ticket sales means less concessions, souvenirs, and parking.  Every revenue generator for the team is stymied. 

But don’t cry for the owners.  After the second Jordan retirement I promised never to have sympathy for Reinsdorf.  The people who really miss that money are the ushers, vendors and parking attendants who all the sudden have to deal with one less day's pay.  No game means at least a hundred guys and girls don’t get a paycheck, and that's just the beginning.

Indirect Effect

I got the idea to write this article from a friend of the site Dan Jerez, who is routinely cut from his job at a Wrigglyville bar when a game is canceled.  There are easily thirty bars depending on Cubs baseball traffic for summer revenue.  Dan, who works at Casey Moran’s, estimates that on a Saturday night a rain out can cut their staff from 55 down to 40.   Casey Moran’s is hardly the biggest bar on the strip 15 workers across thirty bars make 450 people out of a day's work.

Bars only represent a fraction of the small businesses effected by Cub or White Sox traffic. There are convenience stores, cabs, CTA, souvenir shops, restaurants and t-shirt guys all depending on money from sports fans.  It would be difficult estimate the real cost of a rainout because there are so many small businesses involved.   But, with the sheer number of people involved it's hard for me to imagine that the revenue loss isn’t in the hundred thousands or millions.

Is it too early to start petitioning for Wrigley Dome?

"She Loved" or Musical Orgasm

In his interview Peter Terry talks about hoosier pride, but to me he sounds like Chicago blues. Peter speaks in a low voice, but when the man sings it's hide your daughters time.  I went to see the him at work and he stopped a minute to sing us a song. 

It takes a minute for the people in the video to realize the camera is on so stick out those first ten seconds, its worth it.

After the song Peter hung out, to talk writing, influences and magical Gnomes, that link is below.  I had just interviewed his manager Mike Pallen here, and the conversation just kind of flows from there.

Managing Musicians: "I Just Want to See People Make it to the Next Level"

Mike Pallen talks about the three Chicago artist and what he does to promote them.

Mike Manages Grimm Taylor, and Peter Terry. He also does development work for former America's Top Model contestant Sarah VonderHaar. Tomorrow we will have a follow up interview with Peter Terry, and some exclusive video, so come on back!

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Today's Podcast Will Be up Later Tonight

Today's podcast will feature local band manager Mike Pallen, Should go up around 10pm central time tonight.

Ahh! Still editing podcast, but here is a rough cut of some of the material we have coming up.

Bears, Hawks, Sox, Bulls!

If you ever owned a pair of Bears Zubas or served brats and O'Douls to your guests I got a track for you.

This track is Serengeti's "Dennehy." It's a great song for Chicagoans with civic pride, and it reminds me why every time I shave I consider leaving the 'stache. This isn't the first or the last hip hop song you will hear about Chicago, Kanye and Common both have their own, but this is the only one that sounds like it could of been written by one of Saturday Night Live's SuperFans. If the beat sounds familiar it was previously featured on a Master Ace song "Da Grind" another good song for summertime reminiscing. If the story sounds familiar that's just Chicago living.

Sterch's Obituary

Sterch's or Sterch’s 66 doesn’t look like it used to.  There is a new feel to the bar and a new crowd. Usually I wouldn’t notice, but Sterch’s is something of an institution. 

I asked Sterch’s regular Adrian Bleifuss Prados if he wanted to do an interview about the changes at his favorite bar.  He told me it would be more appropriate to write its obituary.  That obituary follows below:

Sterch's is no more. The last tolerable bar in Lincoln Park, a long-embattled fortress of goodness and decency, has fallen to the barbarians. The cranks, eccentrics and aging malcontents that were the bar's regulars have mostly scattered into the tall grass, like rabbits before wolves. The rites and rituals of old have been forsaken and in their place a new, hideous order has been established. Sheepskin boots, and pink polo shirts abound. The music is intolerably loud because the patrons have nothing to say. They open their mouths and banalities flutter out like moths. 

No longer do bottles of Old Style chill in the ice behind the bar. No longer will its famous awning, emblazoned with the Sterch's carrot, flap in the wind. Today, the sign reads "Sterch's 66." Is this a reference to Route 66? A cute gesture to kitschy Americana? I do not know what it means but I know that it is evil. 

The watering hole became famous three decades ago when Lincoln Ave. was considered a bohemian stronghold. Messrs. Stern and Smerch were the original owners and "Sterch" was a portmanteau of their surnames. The carrot became its symbol when deep-fried carrots were the bar's signature snack. Many notable journalists, musicians, political radicals and small-time criminals quenched their thirst at massive mahogany bar. Hunter S. Thompson once destroyed its porcelain urinal. A urinal where Royko, Ebert, gods and giant-slayers relieved themselves. 

 "All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned," so wrote Chuck Marx and Fred Engels in 1848, when they observed venerable institutions unsettled and dismantled by the constant upheavals of the market economy. Sterch's, which once seemed eternal and unchanging, has melted into air, Lincoln Avenue is now entirely the province of the enemy. We are doomed.

Bonus! Metal! Exclamation!

Last week we interviewed Tom Fort, but some of that interview got left on the cutting room floor, and in honor of his big show at Shuba's Sunday we are giving you guys a little bit of what got left out last Wednesday.
