I've been seeing one of my friend's exes. She was a very close friend years ago, but our relationship has dwindled. They were broken up for two years before we got together, but my friend was totally in love with him when they were dating, he broke her heart, and it took her a very long time to get over him, even when she has had other boyfriends, she was still hung up on him. I thought it was just going to be a fling, so I didn't think...

**1/2 (out of four) To an extent, any look behind the scenes of the adult film industry carries with it a certain level of judgment. You don't often see a documentary about finance that asks white-collar types, “So, how did you wind up in a place like this ordinary office building?” Obviously, acting in films whose names I can't print here involves a different routine than the usual 9-to-5. At the end of the day, though, it's both a cliche and a generally unrecognized fact that the men and, more lucratively, women with NSFW filmographies and typically...

Jason Azul could probably run a Bulls gift shop right out of his apartment. Step inside his "man cave" in the South Loop, and you're greeted with Bulls pictures, jerseys, action figures, bobbleheads and even a doll. "I've been embarrassed to have Derrick Rose sign it," said Azul, 27, of the 18-inch Derrick Rose doll that retails for around $300. "I tried to get my girlfriend to get him to. It's definitely a slippery slope. It might be a little embarrassing but you have to collect something.

Having a girl's pint out in Chicago just got a little easier this fall with the launch of Barley's Angels--a growing network of chapters around the globe for women seeking a comfortable milieu to learn about craft beer. But don't be fooled by the group's name and logo--a clever wink at the jiggly, hair-model pretty crime fighters of the iconic '70s TV show--Barley's Angel's is not a social beer-drinking club for women, but a serious forum for beer enthusiasts with a thirst for knowledge.

** (out of four) If subjected to a movie about a niche sport in a distant place, I'd admittedly much rather see “Ping Pong in Bora Bora” or “Jai Alai Atop Mount Everest.” Still, it's odd how clearly the characters in “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” recognize the inanity of the film's premise. “Who the hell cares?” asks Harriet (Emily Blunt) at one point about her efforts to work with Dr. Fred Jones (Ewan McGregor) in hopes of satisfying a sheikh's (Amr Waked)

*** (out of four) None of Robert Pattinson's roles have fully lined up with his shifty absent-mindedness. In “Twilight,” he tries to make Edward mysterious and tortured, but comes off as vacant. In this year's “Bel Ami,” he plays a social climber without any of the perspective or charisma that would have justified the romantic opportunities he unconvincingly obtains. In writer-director David Cronenberg's disturbing, oddly funny “Cosmopolis,” Pattinson's inherent, detached restlessness finally becomes an...

Baseball players have heroes after whom they try to model their games. So surely managers have other managers they try to emulate when arguing with umpires, right? According to first-year White Sox manager Robin Ventura, not so much. "I don't have those," he said. "Lou [Piniella]'s were good. I've seen a couple of Lou's. Those were good. I don't think I have any base-tossing in me. " The easygoing Ventura is as volatile as a bowl of tapioca pudding, losing his cool during the season about as frequently as Chicago does during the winter.

After attending the infamous "Oops" Republican debate in Michigan, I've come to two conclusions: First, President Obama will win a second term, and second, I'm going to need a left eyebrow transplant after raising it so many times in what I call "confusiohorror. " As I watched from the media filing center in an auxiliary basketball court, I was struck by just how divorced the rhetoric espoused by that collection of losers and half-wits was from the reality of the challenges we face - those still screamed in the streets by the evicted Occupy...

Just when you thought Facebook had been taken over by the coupled up, hitched and with child folks of the world, Facebook ups the ante by updating a largely unused feature for those in relationships. Though “friendship pages” have been available for some time--a timeline of events, photos and interests you share with a Facebook friend, be it a platonic friend or someone you're in a relationship with--Facebook launched an updated look for these pages, as well as a handy URL for those in romantic relationships to view an even more special timeline of events.

Pat Fitzgerald is the face of modern Northwestern football. He's the embodiment of the recent success the program has had. After all, the school will tell you it is Chicago's Big Ten team. Not only is Fitzgerald a former player coaching at his alma mater, he represents hope for a program with a well-documented history of futility. That makes him a company guy. Last week, Fitzgerald broke his silence when he made his stance known regarding the recent National Labor Relations Board ruling that allows football players to unionize.
