Music In The Morning




I am back in San Francisco, safely arrived from the Golden deserts of Southern California. My (bestest) homie DJ Taco Tuesday turned me onto this track yesterday and it seems appropriate the the foggy Bay morning i've been drifting through for the last hour.

Welcome home, Me.

Life in Cloud City

The Board of Supervisors has voted to approve the Hunters Point Redevelopment.

There is an infant black hole in the Mission.

There are too many blogs about food in San Francisco.

Larry Flynt will bring the ladies to you!

And speaking of porn! (okay strippers don't necessarily do porn, but whatever)

And this is like porn for mass transit wonks.

Music In The Morning



Yeah, I know it's six in the morning, and that this song might be a slightly intense way to launch your day. But I haven't slept, and this song makes me think of being young, my brothers/best friends, and the awesome puppy that we share. So if you don't like it you can just suck eggs.

(stupid insomnia)

It's All I've Ever Wanted



January 2011 is pretty fraking far away...

Flames, On The Sides of My Face

I love my mom a whole lot. In fact, i'd go as far as to say i'm a total momma's boy. I talk to her on the phone almost every day, she fills me in on the latest family gossip, and i tell her about my latest misadventures. We talk about everything.

Except for politics.

My mom isn't really capable of calm and reasoned debate; my mom FEELS things, passionately and with her whole being. Combine that with her weak heart... If my mom dropped dead while we were talking about the estate tax i'd never forgive myself.

Every once in a while she'll try and lure me into a conversation about something she has just seen on Fox News. I do my best to avoid these conversations, or to steer them into directions of consensus (you hate taxes mom? me too!) but every once in a while i have to put to politely inform her that we are done with a subject.

Like the other day she starts to tell me about this segment she saw on the O'rielly Factor, she was insistant that some San Francisco public official had been on to talk about the Mayor's plan to ban pet stores in the City.

"Mom," I said, "Thats ridiculous, even for Prince Gavin,"

But she was insistent, and i said i'd look into it.

Imagine my HORROR when i came across this little gem on the Uptown Almanac...


I hate you Prince Gavin, you forced me to agree with Bill O'Reilly, I hate you soooooooooooooo hard.
