We flock to McDonalds and Starbucks locations to siphon wifi. I look at the Chicago street outside. Back in the twenties, the gangsters were probably doing drivebys. Now we sit in Starbucks, listening to Indie rock and sipping chai.

Gangster stories are first and foremost archetypal stories of power that cut deep to the inner trenches of human nature. That’s what makes them so compelling, that’s what makes them fables.

Power, legacy, corruption, decay… all monuments to future generations…

Anyways…

Spotted Michael Shannon of Boardwalk Empire at the Art Institute of Chicago.
