Our Corporate Overlords are Set to Launch 100 Parachutists Today at Noon

Birth, School, Work, Death – that’s what Life is about, can you dig, man. But our corporate overlords don’t want you to figure that out, so they’re always offering “free” fun events to distract you from the Truth, man. As today, when the T-Mobile phone company, the one with Catherine Zeta-Jones (once again) is providing a lunchtime spectacle over San Francisco that will keep you distracted and on the edge of your seat, so long as you are seated near Justin Herman Plaza, Marina Green Park, Pier 39, or the Moscone Recreation Center:

“Along with fly-by jets and skywriting, 100 skydivers dressed as “unique personalities” will parachute in synchronized formations over San Francisco as a promotion for T-Mobile. The 100 skydivers will land at four locations around The City.”

Here’s a look at preparations near the Ferry Building in Justin Herman Plaza. Everything’s going to be big big big:

….a bunch of small monitors stacked on top of each other. What rip, man!

It’s the TR2010E TechnoRainbow indoor / outdoor monitor system from Toshiba. It’s mesmerizing. So clever, so tricksy. 

Enjoy the show, starting at 11:15 AM, but really getting going just after noon.

And maybe you can get a free MyTouch 3G phone from them today, somehow. It will keep you distracted for months and years, or a lifetime, really.

See you there!

Been turned around till I’m upside down
Been all at sea until I’ve drowned
And I’ve felt torture, I’ve felt pain
Just like that film with Michael Caine
I’ve been abused and I’ve been confused
And I’ve kissed Margaret Thatcher’s shoes
And I been high and I been low
And I don’t know where to go

Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death
