James VanOsdol - HOST
James is a a Chicago radio
“personality" and professional author (”Chicago Rocked: An Oral
History of Chicago Music in the 1990s”–coming in August, 2007!)
who consumes unhealthy amounts of music, books, comics,
magazines, movies, television, and dairy products.
- Executive Producer
Patrick is a regular on-mic
contributor to “Stun,” as well as the Executive Producer. What
is Patrick all about? Is he as hunky in real life as he sounds
on the air? I asked him to provide a bio for the “Stun” site.
This is what I got:
Patrick Brower is a decadent promoter of cheap, crude, poorly
drawn, semi-literate, kiddie fare. He occasionally whacks
ink-stained 2×4’s over comic book pencils and used to know what
it’s like to rock out on a metal stage. And he watches pro
wrestling. Also, he stole the opening line from Scott McCloud.
Jaime Black - Correspondant
The sole survivor of a dying
suburb, Jaime Black was shipped off to the teeming metropolis
of Chicago, where he realized he possessed interning abilities
beyond those of normal teens. He soon realized that with great
power to overlook not being paid came great re-hire-ability. In
the time since his arrival on the scene, Jaime Black has served
on countless teams, including The Metro, The Onion, and, most
notably, Q101 (WKQX-FM in Chicago) and the “Local 101″ radio
show. He stands, or at least aims for, some level of truth,
justice, and the Chicago way– mainly in that John Cusack
‘vaguely lovelorn and somewhat mopey for no real reason’ kind
of way. ‘Cause that’s how Chicago does.
