If you go over to Spunk Magazine's Blog you will see a spread on my good friend Leo Herrera (including a picture of me!). Congratulations Leo, keep up the good work. (And don't worry San Francisco, i've been assured that Leo is not moving to NYC any time soon.)

George Soros, Multi-Billionaire and noted international man of mystery, spoke at a Colombia University dinner today and let everybody know just how fucked we are. The Highlights?

The global financial system has collapsed.

We are nowhere near the bottom.

The times ahead will be worse then the Great Depression.

I can't wait to start hoarding sugar packets!

Where's Your Messiah Now?

Embracing the Bush Administration policy that you can create prisons outside the law, The Obama Administration contends that detainees in Afghanistan have no legal rights.

Congratulations Douchebags

You've done it, and let me be the first to congratulate you. In these uncertain times, with companies laying off employees left and right, and people desperate for any paying position they can find, you have managed to eliminate somewhere between ten and twenty jobs from coming to your neighborhood.

God you people make me angry.

How could you be against American Apparel coming to the mission? A company that sells a product produced here in California by workers earning a decent wage wants to open a retail location in you neighborhood, creating jobs and paying rent in a location that has been vacant for as long as i've been in San Francisco, and you PROTEST! Because YOU, in your infinite wisdom have decided that your neighborhood isn't SERVED by an American Apparel.

But apparently it is served by a fucking pirate store. A PIRATE STORE!!!! Will someone please tell me who is served by Five and Diamond other then trustifarian peacocks. NO ONE. No one needs a pirate store. No one needs a science fiction bookstore. No one NEEDS a cat themed radio station, but you know what? they are all nice to have around.


The fact of the matter is that the mission has everything it needs. It's got restaurants, and markets, and boutiques, and flower stores. It has everything. And if it lacks something its not because the evils of 'formula retail' are keeping some theoretical awesome store from opening up on Valenica street. If someone had some genius idea for some store that 'served the mission' it would be there by now.


I'm exhausted. Good night.

The Grand Arbiter of Scum

The one and only Chicken John has weighed in on the all important American Apparel controversy.

While one lucky young man has been appointed 'The Grand Arbiter of Scum' wouldn't that look great on a resume?
