Why Chicks Cry: Teardrop City

(I have been both surprised and humbled by the attention "Why Chicks Cry" has received. It has been Facebooked, Twittered, even mentioned in Time Magazine. If you're late to the party, check out the original and also part two. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is the third installment. Cheers!)
