The True Joys of BIke Riding...

Chicago, IL USA: To motivate people, I post the 100TH mile mark that I've ridden since I purchased my last bike on Memorial Day of 2008. However, really being into it, I somehow forgot to look at the pedometer the last few days and now have found that I have gone over the

3300 Mark

and now have clocked some 3,332 miles

and this excess of 32 miles happened within the last 3 days as I usually go 10-14 miles a day. It doesn't take a lot to get me motivated -- as I know biking is an expedient form of travel; as well as a money-saver. When time is of the essence, it's a sure fire means to get to your destination without waiting for public transportation. Granted Chicago weather is as erratic as its politicians, you can always count on a bike that is serviced well. And, that of course, is the rider's responsibility.

My neighborhood bike shop is now in its 61st Year of Business and all bicyclists (families that have lived in the hood as well as newcombers that are just beginning their biking bouts) that go to Gary's love the decor, the demeanor and the excellent work ethic the family has -- after all, this is a Family Endeavor that has seen so much change on 'the block' - located just 1.5 blocks south of the Hub known as Clark & Devon. Knowing that your bike is in good hands when it needs repair sets your mind at ease.

"At ease is a breeze for those who have taken Biking to heart."

Koopersmith's Faux Fur Fridays #39 for September 25, 2009.

Chicago, IL USA:

Two Hundred Eighty-Six (286) K-Blogs have already been written 'write' on this Spot - BLOGSPOT - we could say (to date) of which by the end of December 52 of those will be on and about


Since FAUX FUR FRIDAYS ©2009 is occurring every Friday throughout 2009. Oh, yes there are some people - men, women and children who do not leave their homes unless dressed in some form of FAUX FUR...and rightly so, as it's such a fashionable commodity. Even their pets are in spots, stripes or other patterns that catch the eyeballs of those who pass them by - stopping traffic and emitting a huge stream of compliments.

For reasons as these, it's good to honor such a pattern that sets a precedence in fashion. Even for those who don't follow trends, Faux Fur makes a statement only because it is.

4 months from today is Christmas and yes, I will be sending Faux Fur Boxes to my friends for the Holiday Season...collectibles and eBayable, for sure.

ASK's Best of Show for The Gift Show...September 21-24 @ The Merchandise Mart.

Chicago, IL USA: There is nothing more fun for the buyer, browser or reporter than to walk the floors of the Merchandise Mart, located on the riverfront in downtown Chicago. It's an odyssey that begins with one step of many more. For September, the Corporate Offices of The Merchandise Mart are holding shows simultaneously, those being:

The Outside Furnitiure Show

on floors 8, 15, 16 & 17

and the Gift Show on floors 13-15.

Keeping concentrated on the State of the Arts and in order not to be sound prejudicial towards the Pieces I did not care for, my usual stance is to pick 10 showrooms that are particuarly elegant, pretty or so different, they are a MUST STOP IN TO SEE while in Chicago. Granted, for the most part the Mart is not open to the public, but on certain days, it is. Call ahead to find out when those dates are.

Therefore, my top Shops for the Gift Show: 2009 are:

1) Right Brain Enterprises, Inc.
Rosa (who works at this lovely showroom) turned me on to a highly interesting and green product called: TRASH FOR TEACHING which would be a great endeavor for area schools to 'hold'. These 'flashy' cannisters may be transformed into vases and the proceeds go to needy schools. After all, face it: Teachers are never paid enough and this product (appealing as it is) can help ease that pain. Go to:

While also there, I could not take my eyes off a table from Designer Michael Aram who is based out of the UK with merchandise made in India. For those wanting to do a room up 'right,' Aram designs do make the room nothing short but fabulous.

2) Creative Touch. 13-249 (meaning the shop is on the 13th Floor)

3) Midwest CBK. 13-155. Midwest and CBK merged. Double the great product line(s).

4) Peterson Associates, Inc. 13-126.

5) Primitives by Kathy. 13-111.

6) K&K Interiors. 13-207. Recipient of the July 2009 Award: Best Showroom Display Winner.

7) Diane Baker & Co. 13-417. Great 'Metals'.

8) Dupre Marketing with Reid Foods, Inc. 13-556.
All Natural Line of Goodies. You must also add that here in westernized countries there is so much food, only 1 stomach. What's so delightful about this showroom is that it's nostalgic looking, but not an item looks like it would be found at any local grocers. New and innovative. Tasty, too...As the Reid Foods Rep commented: YOu can't replant an old tree, but you definitely can set up a showroom to be as inviting as Ms. Dupre's.

9) Melrose International, LLC. These women know what the latest trends are as they showed me around the decoratives displayed. Flickering Candles and picture frames with word-play are just 2 of the items that will be most popular at the Holidays this year.

10) C. Samuelson Assoc. 13-429. Furniture is their middle name. And a name that you should be aware of is: Barreveld, a Dutch company that is famous for their 'hob-nails' which to me is a really cool texture. It is masculine feeling, of course, but it does have a certain rugged appeal that can automatically be feminized by merely placing a pot of violets on the top.

11) Enesco, LLC. 13-423. Celebrating 50 years, what caught my eye were their Knick-Knacks - collectibles that I have never seen before of the major Fruit & Vegetable Groups. Just when you think you have seen it all, all of a sudden something strikes your eye here at the Mart Shows...

Tomorrow's Blog will highlight the Outside Furniture Portion of this Week's Shows at Chicago's Furniture Mart - indeed one of the top wonders when Chicagoing in the Windy City. After all:

Tiz always the season to Shop the Merchandise Mart.

FAUX FUR FRIDAYS - #38 and counting. How to keep a Species alive...the Koopersmithian Way.

Chicago, IL USA: 38 Fridays ago, I lauched the first of an ongoing year-long series called:


in order to acknowledge Members of the Animal Kingdom that have added so much color and pattern to our world. Not only that -- FAUX means 'unreal' and it is unreal how people are still wearing Animal Pelts. FAUX FUR FRIDAYS (C)2009 is to acknowledge that with the vast array of beautiful man-made materials at our very fingertips -- the killing and slaughtering of Animals -- many on the endangered species list can be reduced. After all, EXTINCTION is forever. Therefore, think before you eat that steak or decide to go on a hunting safari of deepest Africa. Once gone, Nature is gone permanently.

Along the Biker's Trail...

ASK on: What Lowell has to say...Round 3 when it means more than BUYING THE COVER.

Chicago, IL USA:

I'm very happy to know one of the brainiest and brawniest of America's Greatest Advertising Personalities - the legendary Mr. Lowell D. Thompson...of Chicago.

ITH: In The Hierarchy: There's Obama - Oprah and Lowell...or should we 'irish-icize' his name and place an O in front of it? You decide!

Ethnicities aside - since that will drum up some sentiments and sediments -- from other factions, Mr. T. has a blog - altho it is more appealing than all others called:


where he rates books and magazines' covers. Why? Because he has a VO: Valued Opinion. And like Lowell's VO: Valued Opinions or not, they are always right...however, thinking my Ope is just as well-revered, I sometimes get on a band-wagon stunt and decide to set him straight...after all, he really does seem to push the Card...Cover or whatever he thinks has not been created with the Best Artistry in Mind - for the fundamental BAiM effect that we all need to serious consider before posting anything on the Internet. After all, what will future generations think of us. Really now.

Therefore, the following is MY COMMENT to Mr. Lowell Thompson's recent post found at:

if you care to read it. Check out the Blog first so you fully realize the Visual first.

Lowell, Lowell, Lowell, will you ever learn?

There's a Difference between BEING HUNGRY for food and for fashion and fame. That's exactly what the Magazine is trying to do. Glorify FAT. Listen, I've been there. I was chubby when I was little becuz I was very fortunate and had a stay-at-home MOM who made meals -- real meals with real food -- all by scratch and not only did I eat what was in my PLATE, but a few helpings.

OK, granted the GAL is sticking up for our Fatter American Babes who have some 'sexy' flesh on their bones, but for the most part, the cover model is air-brushed and any BMI: Body Mass Index amount over 20 lbs. is just plain BAD - as in unhealthy for your bones; heart and what is known as longevity.

I rather have the Premise of that magazine be a helpful guide to OVER-coming your hunger for eating too much -- than a glorification of Flubber and Flab.

Another Pertinent Point (taking into account the APP Factor) that needs to be made at this crucial time since HUNGER got your attention, therefore it's of national concern now is that I actually watched 80% of NBC's Biggest Loser last nite on prime time and those 'young adults' have major problems. Their coaches even made mention of how these young adults - the 'contestants' if you want to call them by that label - were using FOOD to stuff their emotions. Granted, by being worked to the bone, some lost as much as 19 lbs. in a week, there's deep underlying problems to any addiction - whether it is food, drugs, liquor, sex, shopping, etc.
The most current statistics in America (as well as other industrialized countries) state that Morbid Obesity has never seen higher levels.

It's far better to BE AT THE GYM exercising and NOT exorcising your body every day...than to be behind a PC publishing and creating a Magazine that condones this kind of behavior.

Did the Editor of his mag ever think to put a 'HUNGRY' Black Kid starving in an African nation who is surrounded by Flies and Diseases on the Cover with the Nomenclature 'Hungry' atop his/her head? Now, this is may really help a 'bad situation.' And, wouldn't that be a much better depiction of what we should be doing for EACH other instead of condoning Addictions and glorifying them? Getting in touch with SPIRIT is what it is all about...

OK, so you're rating a Cover - but it's far deeper a problem than most men realize...and the capitalists of Western Worlds know.

Enough said. Your turn.

Is your Baby racist ? Newsweek's Top Cover Story of the Week...

Chicago, IL USA:

Speaking about Racism, it's right there on the cover of Newsweek for September 14, 2009.

Grocery stores can be used as Libraries, especially since so many great magazines (of those left) can be read while waiting in the check-out line. This morning while getting my double Bagel and diet A&W Rootbeer Fixes, I saw the cover of:

Newsweek Magazine

whose title story read as: Is your Baby Racist?

Of course, I grabbed the last issue (dated 9-14-2009) and tossed it in with my groceries. I've only read half of it so far, but the Theory is that Birgitte Vittrup of the Children's Research Lab at the University of Texas in Austin, Texas ran a study to see if videos about multi-cultures had an(y) effect on young kids. You would be surprised! Not only at the Kids, but what their Parents displayed during the course and duration of the study.

The Article named:

See Baby Discriminate

taken from: See Alice Po Bronson & Ashley Merryman is from their book 'Nurture Shock' -- as a copy of it was depicted at the top of the page.

Logically, the way I feel about the entire Topic: If it's not going to be racist, then it can be sexist. We just live in that kind (call it that) of Society.

The Article is well worth reading -- and from what I read so far, enlightening, but maybe NOT in the way that we would wish it to be.

Koopersmith on RACE & RACISM: The Definitive Book on Dispelling Racism once & for ALL.

Chicago, IL USA

As in 'once and for ALL people.' No matter what Flesh Tone they are cloaked in.

The first news reel that I heard this morning dealt with the death of the Yale Student, Anna Le who had been murdered in her school's lab and stuffed into a wall. Since she was to be married on Saturday to a White Guy, my cynical mind automatically registered this as a hate crime -- somebody who hated her finance so much -- as to separate the 2 permanently since many Oriental Families despise inter-racial marriages, especially when it concerns their daughters. The Story was an eye-opener on many accounts - not only criminal -- but how safety and race do run hand-in-hand whether a person lives in a big city, small town or whomever they are associated with.

Therefore, Books like my Novel called:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race (C)2009

and its off-spring -- a Script I am writing that accompanies the Text -- is a movable product that all nationalities should read, interpret and begin following to the letter. Life is much too short to even deal with how people view you -- only because of the color of one's skin and flesh tones. However, this is still being done -- even 144 years after Abraham Lincoln freed the Slaves, 41 years after Civil Rights became an obvious ploy in which to 'melt' the Hatred and 1000s of speakers have given their opinions on how we should merely get along. It's alot easier to do than to wrankle in hate and deception.

Copies of SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race (C)2009 will begin selling from me directly as of October 15, 2009 for $80 (USA) and $105 (for foreign). This Cost also covers 1 year of Email Updates as to its progress, a listing of my Appearances, updated Pictures of the 'Charactoys (R)' and an assortment of Surprises that People of all SKiNS enjoy.

Lots of Memories attached to 9-11-9.

Chicago, IL USA:

As I sat and stared at the small clock at the bottom of my computer screen, I thought of where I was when the Terrorists destroyed our Peace of Mind and Sense of Security 8 years ago today:

The 11th of September in 2001.

Years previously, I had started a HOLIDATE called: 911 Day (C)1997 that was so well accepted Sandy Whitney, the Editor of Chase's Calendar of Events noted it (as her favorite Event of their Entire Directory) during an Interview she did about my Holidates done for the Dallas Morning News, a popular and wide-circulated newspaper. Little would I know that it would be TRIED TO ITS MAX...only a few years later.


Imagine what Accomplishments could have been done by the thousands of people who had lost their lives...

Imagine the Families who would still be together a full life -- although quarrels and misunderstandings may have gotten in their way -- they would stil be IN TACT. That and not trusting others were 2 of the repercussions that the Circumstances surrounding 9-11 have left us. Not only Americans, but other societies around the world; many of which are clustered in wars, aggression and much more...

Sitting and thinking quietly about our Blessings is something we should all all times, not only those times when we are wrapped in sorrow.

The Eventological Slant concerning September 9, 2009 - 9-9-9

Chicago, IL USA: Record that date as it will not come around again until 2109, but Chances are you may be too old to even recall this one...

News always seems to break in Chicago. If we can't talk about the weather (which changes as abruptly as job offers) we can always try to break records. And, I did just that (again) on my bike yesterday, September 8TH when I by-passed 3100 miles on the Bike. What's neat to note is that many city companies are offering their employees incentives to bike to work which even includes a new bike and are adding bike spaces along side their buildings. Of course, this is great for the Green Movement, but ensures their employee's health stays in top-notch condition, no matter if it's a repetitive Date like 9-9-9 or any other that comes and goes.

Because Starbucks is visited by people of all Skin Colors Ages & Denominations) who love the Taste & Flavor of a great Cup of Coffee, you (as a Corporate Identity) may wish to formally get in(volved) on the GROUND (no pun intended) Level of this exciting Book/Script that dispels Racism. The following eMedia Release begins that dialog. I thank you in advance for your time devoted to a topic I hold near & dear to my heart...

Chicago, IL USA: The Opening Quotation to my recently written Manuscript & Movie Script entitled:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009


"All Wars have been primarily waged and/or fought for The Advancement or Abolishment of SKiN...not Money, Land (Territory), Riches (Jewels) or the Princess' Hand. It was only then and afterwards that The Onset of Greed arrived - because of SKiN. Redefining (y)our Perception of SKiN is the only Way to get past this Chapter in Human History."

SKiN is the Acronym for:

Sacred Kinship In Nature ™

that conclusively depicts the non-stop Altruistic + Champion Causes I consistently address in my moving ADRI-torials, Articles, Books and Compositions as delineated by

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009

a timeless and universal Literary Classic on detailing how to better, respect and care for Our World.

Its Plot in 204 choice Words follow:

Ten beloved Plush Toys wind their Way through The Vault, guided by The Keeper as they carefully examine The SKiNS of every Human (Man, Woman and Child) that ever graced and roamed The Planet. Representing 10 Species that lived on Earth for as long as 217,000,000 years (outliving the Almighty Dinosaur), the Conversations strike Chords of many Colors whereby The Charactoys ® (as they are collectively known cleverly derived from the Two Words: CHARACTERS + TOYS thoughtfully explain through their indiscriminating Eyes, Senses, Reasoning and ample Experiences how Man (an Earthling and Resident of merely 100,000 years of age) has created Today's Problems by 'simply being Human.' Twenty-Seven enlightening and provocative hidden Chambers lend themselves to the animated and lively Discussions of and Topics about utilizing the Four Elements of Race, Nature, Mixed Signals and ultimately, What Matters. An Attitude of Salvation, Righteousness and Hope lies on The SKiN Layer of all (their) Discourse(s) until Chapter/Scene 28 squelches and summarizes the oblique and stark Reality of Life in The 21st Century, leaving our Heroes and Protagonists, The Readers, Viewers and all Living Creatures on The Planet Earth (Animalia & Humanity -- Flora & Fauna) in an unanticipated Turn and State of Shock and Awe.


SKiN's Log Line is:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys redefine Race. Connect the Dots.

SKiN's Meet Line is:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 meets Aesop's Fables, Alice In Wonderland, Bee Movie, Coreline, Forrest Gump, Gulliver's Travels, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Twilight Zone and The Wizard of Oz.


With Race & Racism being the hottest Topics of our Age combined with Director, Tim Burton's Release of Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland in March, 2010, I strongly feel and sense that the Timing and Significance of SKiN as the next Big Literary Classic and Motion Picture Blockbuster could not be more opportune.

INSERT: I must add that a great conversation is always held over a great Cup of Coffee. That's why I strongly believe this Liaison between SKiN (my Book) and Starbucks would really benefit Humanity today.
