Lily writesNine Songs For Your Break-Up Mixtape

by Lily Wellen

For some people, Valentine’s Day being around the corner is a reminder that things are not going so well with their sweetheart. Maybe it’s time to let go and move on from your partner. Have no fear, we have the tunes to help you out and make this all a little bit easier for you. Here’s your Break Up mixtape to help you get over your new ex:

"Dancing On My Own" by Robyn

Your former significant other in a new relationship? Well, it’s not ideal, but you can take your mind off of it by dancing to this catchy tune. Spin around circles, belt this out and show that you don’t care anymore.

Lily writesSix Songs to Play For Your “Gal-entine’s Day”

by Lily Wellen

Valentine’s Day has always been a silly holiday for me. It is supposed to be a day for showing love to your significant other, which to be honest I don't have usually. However, Parks and Recreation soon came into my life and shed some light. When I found out about their invented holiday, “Galentine’s Day,” all of this made sense to me. This holiday shouldn’t be exclusive to the significant others, it should be about celebrating anyone you love in your life in this case specifically your gal pals. Because of this, I decided to put together a list of songs to celebrate the lovely women in your life. Head to brunch, maybe even at JJ’s Diner, and press play on these songs.

“Woman” by Kesha

How do you not feel empowered after hearing this tune? She discusses the strength and power women have on their own and with each other. And, she makes you feel like you are a complete badass. It is the perfect anthem to celebrate ladies in our lives.

Kevin Fullam writesThe Fourth Wall: Black Mirror, Season 4

Welcome to The Fourth Wall, CHIRP's weekly e-conversation on cinema. This week's subject is Season 4 of the Netflix series Black Mirror.

This edition is written by CHIRP Radio volunteers Kevin Fullam and Clarence Ewing.


Here's a thought experiment, Clarence:

Imagine that you're in possession of a super-duper computer that is able to run those "simulated worlds" so often discussed among intelligentsia these days. (Summary: how do we know that we'renot living in a simulated world as opposed to "reality?" Answer: we don't.) You've got a thousand Clarence Ewings floating around in this magic box, all living out variants of your own life. However, here's the twist -- you can somehow drain their resources for your own use. Come down with a kidney problem? You can purchase pristine health at the cost of kidney failure for one of your sims. Short on cash? One of your sims suffers a financial calamity, while you reap the benefits. They won't have any clue as to why it's happening -- after all, bad luck befalls everyone sometimes, right? 

Would you want such a device? What are the ethical obligations involved in dealing with these virtual beings? They may not be "real," but life sure does feel real to them... so, does the difference matter?

Mike Nikolich writesCHIRP Welcomes Shredders to to Subterranean on Saturday Feb. 3!

2011 W. North Avenue
Chicago, IL 60647

Shredders is a hot new Minneapolis hip-hop group featuring rappers P.O.S. (Stefon Alexander), Sims (Andrew Sims) and producers Paper Tiger (John Samels) and Lazebeak (Aaron Mader), a founding member of the Doomtree hip-hop collective.

Inspired by their “Flipping Cars” collaboration, Shredders released a three-track EP earlier in 2017, featuring the party anthem “Cult 45,” which led to the release of the full-length album Dangerous Jumps, which received rave reviews, as well as extensive airplay on CHIRP Radio 107.1 FM. Dangerous Jumps features 12 meticulously-produced tracks that are loaded with hooks, double-time beats and rapid-fire raps.

The evening’s performance will feature DJs P.O.S. and Sims on the raps, and Papes and Beak on the beats. Don’t miss this must-see performance at SubT!
