Real talk: I've been lame lately. The decision to defy my worsening health and party until I lost my voice for a solid three days in honor of my 25th combined with my annual “it's cold outside and I should start saving for the holidays anyway” attitude has led to more frequent BYOB trips, followed by bedtimes my grandmother would laugh at. The same cannot be said for my upstairs neighbors. While I've been busy spending quality time with Netflix Instant, they've been having quite a time of it. And they have no issues sharing.

Mantras about living in the moment don't come much more vivid than the chorus of "Keep Me in the Dark," off Chicago electro-poppers The Noise FM's recent album "Attraction. " "Whatever you've done before, just keep me in the dark," Alex Ward sings, "Whatever you've got in store, just keep me in the dark. " In the video debuting today exclusively at RedEye, however, the band looks back to one '80s pop cultural touchstone after another--starting with Robert Palmer ("Addicted to Love")

Chicago rockers the Noise FM answered our Chi-Tunes questionnaire . Do the same and your band could appear in RedEye! What makes your live show great?

Lights dimmed, music levels rose and, in a matter of just seconds, the entire energy at The Second City e.t.c. Theater warped into something very few could possibly put into words. This isn't your run-of-the-mill comedy show. Despite having no idea what to expect, I knew I - and the 200-plus audience members in the theatre - were in for a unique, high-energy and hysterical evening of Chicago's best comedy. “A Clown Car Named Desire” burst onto the stage in front of a sold-out audience, and their addictive camaraderie was apparent seconds into the performance.

Filming for the newest "Transformers" movie was making noise again this weekend. Several videos surfaced over the weekend of a controlled explosion at a silo building on Damen off of I-55, showing a sizable ball of fire and bang that took out a bridge between structures. A representative from "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction" confirmed Monday the explosions were part of filming for the movie, set to be released in June of next year. Check out another angle on the stunt below.

**** (out of 4) If this is your first time experiencing the work of Flying Lotus (real name: Steven Ellison), you might be in over your head. His new full-length “Until the Quiet Comes” subscribes to a different definition of mash-up. No, you aren't going to hear Lil' Boosie over a Fall Out Boy song (if anyone actually is working on that, please send it my way soon) but you will experience a fusion of live instruments, bowel-rattling bass and overt jazz influences. This album is markedly different from 2010's “Cosmogramma,” which was like...

* (out of four) Imagine if the “Paranormal Activity” films still featured loud noises and mysteriously falling pots and pans - only this time, they also included Marlon Wayans being raped by a ghost. Wouldn't that be hilarious? No, it would not. And “A Haunted House,” starring and co-written by Wayans, doesn't so much skewer the popular “Paranormal” franchise as clone it into a comedy in which farting and the word “asstraphobic” pass as jokes. Presented as unexplainable found footage from Oct....

Merry Christmas, Bears fans. It's over. For all you Cutler haters out there, now you know. He's the best we got, and we're nothing without him. Sorry D, it's true. Of course, this highlights another weakness: Jerry Angelo's stunning inability to evaluate offensive talent. Thanks for Caleb Hanie, Jerry. Reminds me of the year you stuck us with Jonathan Quinn and Craig Krenzel. No one scours the earth harder to find more duds at quarterback than this guy. Jerry, humor me. Donovan McNabb.

**1/2 (out of four) Celeste (co-writer Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) both put their fingertips on a tiny squeeze bottle of lip balm. They rub up and down and make sexual noises. After a little while, they squeeze the tube. You know what happens next. This is the epitome of an inside joke, the kind of thing that filters through the bloodstream of a relationship. These two still have no trouble laughing together. Yet for some reason the longtime sweethearts, who have been married for six years but separated six months ago, spend every day...
