Bad Amateur Shorts Theatre: "The Taken-ing" [VIDEO]

Welcome back to Bad Amateur Shorts Theatre. On today's episode we are pleased to showcase "The Taken-ing." Not to be confused with "The Takening." Our feature film is perhaps about being taken, possibly inspired by Liam Neeson's Taken, though lacking the signature "small skill set" monologue. "The Taken-ing" seems to sport higher production values than "The Takening," but the margin between shit and shittier is razor thin.

Bad Amateur Shorts Theatre: "The Takening" [VIDEO]

Welcome to Bad Amateur Shorts Theatre. On today's episode we are pleased to showcase "The Takening." The film is about being taken, possibly inspired by Liam Neeson's Taken, though lacking the signature "small skill set" monologue. It appears to have been filmed in a hospital, dentist office, or some other type of antiseptic interior. No dialogue, no resolution, no hope.

Chicago Sun-Times 2015 Mayoral Candidates Endorsement Interview

The campaign for Chicago's next mayor is kicking into gear. There's dissatisfaction with incumbent Rahm Emanuel, but are there any serious contenders that can capitalize on that dissatisfaction? The Sun-Times interviews a slate of candidates, including the incumbent; the video is below and runs about 2 hours. Questions hit on TIF, pensions, CPS closings, gun laws, and more. Have a look at the linked candidate questionnaires as well. One of the candidates is a "Dr." who never graduated past 7th grade. That's borderline the Rent-Is-Too-Damn-High.

Questionnaires
Rahm Emanuel
Robert “Bob” Fioretti
Jesus “Chuy” Garcia
Willie Wilson
William “Dock” Walls III
