Great dynasty. I blinked and missed it. So long, Blackhawks. Since winning Lord Stanley's Cup, you've won zero playoff series. That's one less than one. In two seasons. Um, changes please. Our stars didn't show up. Our kids played well but not well enough, and our goalies are good, not great. Someone has got to go, and I vote for one of the Patricks. Sharp or Kane, you choose, Stan Bowman. Maybe trade some of those kids for a stud goalie. Not a major blow-up. Just a tweaker.

Are you tired of feeling like a game-less loser? Do you leave bars empty-handed on the reg? Fear not, men and women of Chicago. Here are three gender-tailored tips to ensure a successful night of flirtation. Girls Step 1: The outfit Attention, ladies! I have witnessed a disturbing trend in the realm of going-out clothes I like to call J. Crew Syndrome. Not sure if you've noticed, but the guys you're trying to attract aren't hauling kegs to AYSO soccer practice on Friday nights ... so why are you at the bar dressed like a mom handing out orange slices?

** (out of four) I support liking brie on your burger, but snooty businessman Arthur Shaw's (Alan Alda) extravagance catches up to him when the FBI snags him for securities fraud. Since the stolen money includes the pensions of all the staff in Arthur's building, a ragtag crew of the tower's employees/residents (Ben Stiller, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena) recruit an amateur thief (Eddie Murphy) to help swipe $20 million from the crook. If ever there was a victimless crime, this is it. The buzz: Not only does the plot and rhythm of the occasionally...

*** (out of 4) Thank you, Mr. Jones! It sounds like you finally stopped listening to dummies and just did what you do best. From the intro song (appropriately titled "No Introduction"),"Life is God" finds you spouting the honest and entertaining stream of consciousness we've come to love from your previous work. Of course, it wouldn't be a Nas album without some dead weight tracks. "Reach Out,"; featuring Mary J. Blige, screams of an A&R person saying, "Oh crap, we forgot radio singles!"

***1/2 (out of four) I really didn't want to like Passion Pit's latest album, “Gossamer.” I'm still having flashbacks from 2009-2010 when repeated plays of “Sleepyhead” ruined every party I attended, and when everyone was grumbling about how boring the rest of the “Manners” album was. How much more could this five-piece band really offer after such a surge of success from one singular pop anthem hit? A lot, as it turns out. Born out of a “Hey, why not?” thought from frontman Michael Angelakos, Passion Pit goes much deeper for its...
