Guess I was totally wrong. When I heard the iPhone 5 had racked up millions of preorders in the first 24 hours and lines were forming outside of some Apple stores a week before Friday's launch, I half expected to read that it was magic. But I scoured the features list and unfortunately, no, the iPhone 5 won't grant you the power of flight, decode your pets' languages (they all really just constantly say "feed me" anyway) or persuade that cute bartender to give you his/her phone number.

**1/2 (out of four) In “Spring Breakers,” 2013's best movie, Vanessa Hudgens sported bikini after bikini. Her character's problems concerned acquiring enough money to party and drink her ass off and how to handle the gangster named Alien (James Franco) who sprung her from jail. In “Gimme Shelter,” Hudgens plays a character who, other than also seeking an escape from her environment, is pretty much the exact opposite. When we meet Agnes, who prefers being called Apple, she's running from an angry drug addict (Rosario Dawson)

Update: The company that distributes "Saga" has said a misunderstanding led to the book being blocked and that the edition will be made availbale soon .   If you ask non-comic book readers what they think comics represent, they probably would describe "wholesome" and "family-friendly" superheroes such as Superman, Batman and the X-Men. That would be accurate, but a slew of adult-themed comics also are very popular - and I am not talking about manga porn or XXX comics.

As I sat waiting for my train home after Fiona Apple and Blake Mills' show Tuesday night at the Bank of America Theatre, I listened to a woman bitching to her friend about the evening. “I mean, an hour is too long to ask your fans to wait. I can understand 15 minutes, you're getting some drinks, going to the bathroom, but ...” “I thought she was great, but I'd be amazed if she's never taken an acting class in her life.” Listen, lady: Fiona Apple is a living legend, one of very few true geniuses we'll see perform in our lifetimes.

While I certainly consider myself a pretty tech-“hep” individual, I usually refrain from writing about the latest gadgets, gizmos, and internet trends because let's face it, there's barely any readership for that kind of thing. After all, what kind of jerks are going to argue about the silly differences between cellular phones? Having said that, I recently discarded my Samsung “slidey-phone” for an iPhone. Suspect punctuation aside, I have to say, this iPhone is quite remarkable.

The demented horror flick, “The Human Centipede,” was just ripe for a “South Park” treatment, but I didn't see this coming. In director Tom Six's film, a crazy German scientist sews together three people to form a “human centipede.” In the 15th season premiere of “South Park,” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have stitched (get it?!) the twisted 2010 tale to Apple creator Steve Jobs, who introduces a "new product that will once again revolutionize the way we use our phones and tablet devices": the HumancentiPad.

“A buddy of ours was the first one to do it, and he passed away so we just kind of do it in his honor,” Gregory Thornton said. The "it" he speaks of probably isn't what you'd expect. It's not a ritual or a rite of passage, at least not in the traditional sense. He's with two of his friends on a busy corner of Michigan Avenue, and he's prepared to stay there for days to wait out Apple's newest product, the iPhone 5.  The phone hits stores on Friday, and 23-year-old South Side resident Thornton and his friends have been waiting since 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

It may feel like summer came early this year, but the season doesn't truly kick off until May 5 when the Green City Market moves from its indoor location at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum to the south end of Lincoln Park, where it will hold court 7 a.m.-1 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday through October. This year, opening day will be celebrated with live music, tours and a demo by "Top Chef: Texas" runner-up Sarah Grueneberg ofSpiaggia. While the market is a cook's candy store thanks to its array of local produce, meats, cheeses and baked goods, there...

Cooling temperatures make this a fantastic weekend for craft beers, apples and ... tacos? Two new Chicago fests - Andersonville City Made Fest and Sam Adams' Lakeview Taco Fest - hit the streets this week with a focus on locally brewed beer and tacos, respectively, while VeganMania keeps veggie-minded folks full and Lincoln Square Apple Fest kicks off the fall season with cider, pie, doughnuts and more. We'd recommend an outfit involving flannel, boots, and your comfiest eating pants.

Pumpkin-carvers and apple-bobbers, relax. Despite a historic summer drought, autumn's most popular crops will still be readily available this year, no matter what you might have read online (just Google "pumpkin apple shortage 2012). If there are any shortages in the apple or pumpkin crops this fall, it will have little to do with the barren conditions that dried out the Midwest. Pumpkins thrive in hot, dry weather, while the Midwestern apple crop's fate had already been decided. Richard Tanner, 67, treasurer of Tanners Orchard in Speer,...
