Dime Digest – Follow Friday: “… and they say Chi-City”

Pop Culture, Soundtrek

Is that… is that you? Yes, it’s me – more importantly, it’s Friday. Which means one thing: well, that it’s Friday (obvs), but also it is Follow Friday (for those of you who still celebrate, like opposite day – it’s a strong niche holiday… digress) so let’s get to stalkin’!

This Friday comes in like a breath of fresh air from the Windy City, we have a trifectious Pop trinity of Chitown’s finest – native and newcomers alike.

So much to be said about these three… but nothing that could define them better than the figures themselves

@kanyewest – Kanye West

One of Chi-Town’s pre-eminent gods tweets in perfect Pop Art prose… that is all – anything more that needs to be said, he has tweeted, is tweeting now, or will tweet in the future

@ladygaga – Lady GaGa

#GaGapalooza: that is all – for now… #soimpossiblynotfinished

Intermission: … and now a word from our happily wed couple – proof that they are movements by themselves, but forces when together. Art is art is art – and they literally are the long and short (form) of the renaissance…

The long…

and the short…

Now to round out the triad is a man who studies this like it’s his job – oh, wait…

@mattrett – Matthew Rettenmund

Mr. Rettenmund honed his Pop palate and crafted his cultural connoisseurship at the University of … yep … Chicago – on his way to conquering Boy Culture.

So there you have it: a short, sticky, sweet post – just as the culture intended; all of which is to say: happy Friday, here’s a few totally stalkable tweeps, and, well, powerful paws up for Popapalooza.

Watch this space: If New York is where stars are born, and Los Angeles is where they go to die – I suppose Chicago is where they go to catch some air in between.
