Something to do with corruption?
Well if the world ends tomorrow, 12-21-2012, the joke’s on me.
So, earlier this year some rich whacko up in Marin started making a video* in Latin America what was supposed to be all about the so-called Mayan Prophecy.
But things headed south with the production, so that got written up in a blog down south, down in Los Angeles.
And then the same basic info was posted in the San Francisco Examiner. (It used to be right here.)
And then the rich Marin whacko actually went and sued that film-industry blog earlier this year.
And then the rich Marin whacko lost her lawsuit, big time.
So then I made a post about this affair, you know, because nobody else up here had done so.
Then I got a threatening letter from the same attorney who lost the case in L.A. Read that letter here.
But apparently, that threat was all lies and jest.
Hey, do you like sports analogies ‘n stuff?
This is rich Marin County whacko Elisabeth Theriot’s inchoate SLAPP lawsuit against TheWrap blog, IMO:
See? Kicker Garo Yepremien tried to score a few points but then opposing counsel filed a special motion to strike what was so special that discovery was immediately halted. Then he lost the hearing and that was the end of the suit, it looks like. I’m saying Elisabeth Theriot got pwned in court.
With a quickness.
Which, you know, this kind of thing doesn’t happen every day so that’s why I made a post about it.
But now the world is supposed to end tomorrow ‘n stuff and there’s no Mayan Prophecy “film” to see.
Now, what about San Francisco Examiner President and Publisher Todd Vogt? Do you think he got some sort of request or demand or something from rich Marin County whacko Elisabeth Theriot or the wire service or somebody to take down the wire story on these topics, you know, that used to be posted right here?
Why would the ‘Xam have a page dedicated to rich Marin County whacko Elisabeth Theriot (just look at the URL bar) with nothing to say about her? It’s because the story about her that used to be there is no longer there.
Is there cowardice here?
I’ll tell you, TheWrap.com stood up to rich Marin County whacko Elisabeth Theriot and was/will be rewarded with mandatory attorney fees as a kind of reward.
Why couldn’t/can’t the ‘Xam stand up to rich Marin County whacko Elisabeth Theriot too?
I don’t know.
Now I’ll tell you, when an actual newspaper (improperly, IMO) caves to some rich lady, that just might have the effect of emboldening her. Then she just might start going after poor, defenseless WordPress bloggers.
But maybe I’m way off on this one.
If so, please somebody disabuse me.
* I call it a video because it was (mostly?) recorded on digicams – no film required. The current title of this still-troubled production is Mayan Revelations & Hollywood Lies. It’s delayed. It’s nonsense. Oh what’s that, we’re going to see just how important that Long Count calendar is tout de suite? No we won’t. Sorry. Oh, over the coming decades? No we won’t. Sorry.
Via the Bay Area Observer comes the news of one of CW Neviusese’s many, many errors going national.
“C.W. Nevius’ column about Most Holy Redeemer banning drag queen performers incorrectly stated that entertainer Peaches Christ appeared at an event at the church’s hall with a dildo shaped like a crucifix. He did not appear at the event, nor does he use the prop.”
I are smart, so very very smart:
“It’s not that Mirkarimi is expected to have much of a shot to win reinstatement. All the smart money at City Hall is predicting an 11-0 vote against his case. That way everyone has some political cover. An ideological vote - John Avalos or David Campos voting for Mirkarimi to confirm far left credentials – isn’t likely.”
And what of the so-called Southern Waterfront Proposal for the already-failed America’s Cup 2013?
Check it. The Nevius changed course 180 degrees over three months (which is 60 degrees per month, you know, nautically.) That’s a lot to forget about.
In closing, Nevius, can’t you try a little harder? I mean, you get paid for five days a week and you only “work” about two days a week, right?
In the alternative, why don’t you acknowledge your numerous mistakes?
Just asking, Bro.
Here’s the news from LiveSOMA:
“With the birth of my first son, a ridiculously overwhelming list of work-related projects, and the fact that I was recently priced out of the South of Market Neighborhood and forced to move to a part of the City where homeless people aren’t constantly pooping on my doorstep (GASP!), I have decided not to continue.
With that said, if anyone out there would like to dust off LiveSOMA, I will gladly help you take it over. I would really hate to see the site- and its years of development- go to waste. Just shoot me an email. If not, I will be pulling the plug after the new year.”
It’s kind of new, it’s totally for you. It’s the Parrot Quadricopter AR Drone 2.0.
I told you all about this contraption before, but at the time it was only available online. These days, you can head on down to the SoMA Costco (America’s First Urban Costco) and get one for less than $300.
Then, you train your new pet to listen to simple commands from your cell phone (yes, there’s an app for that) and then you’re on your way to a Pulitzer:

So like the San Francisco Chronicle is cutting back on street distribution in the Financh?

Sure looks that way.
Or maybe just on Monty Street?
Now, is there any penalty on former Mayor Willie Brown for foisting all this short-sighted pedmount concept on the MSM and the Commonweal?
The “before” picture here looks better to me than the “after” photo…
As promised, here’s Katie Couric’s postcard to the 415, recorded inside a minivan as she was heading down to SFO a few days back:
Let me tell you something here – if you can get a good night’s sleep ONLY in a McRoskey Mattress, you know, the way the McRoskey Mattress Company wants you to think, then there’s something wrong with you asides from your back or your neck or whathaveyou.
There’s something wrong with yo noggin, is what I’m saying.
Let’s see how the readers of the Chronicle SFGate respond to the advertorial in the electronic pages of the SFGate. Here are the first two:
“FINALLY! A mattress with the 49 square feet of space I NEED, and at a $12,000 price tag I can AFFORD!”
“Almost 12 grand for a mattress… it should improve sleep, sex, and prolong my life by 10 years for that.”
Here’s how it will look in the corner of your live-work mansion:

And here’s the original release, below, if you want to compare.
McRoskey, if I put one of your 7×7 box springs on the sidewalks of San Francisco, it would sit there for weeks because nobody would realize it’s worth thousands of dollars.
(Oh, because it’s not worth thousands of dollars.)
McRoskey, if you took a 1×1 bite out of the upper left corner of this mattress combo, I’d give you points for style. But you didn’t do that.
McRoskey, nobody wants your $12,000 beds.
(And oh, Gentle Reader, if you want a good night’s sleep for two, why not get a queen mattress from the Costco? $475 delivered – it comes in a surprisingly small box, one that you yourself can move around. Let it air out for a couple of days after it expands, and you’re in business. This is the modern way of sleep during our Great Recesssion.)
“McRoskey Mattress Introduces The New 7′X7′ San Francisco King
McRoskey’s newest standard size is for people who really love to stretch out
SAN FRANCISCO, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – McRoskey Mattress Company introduces a new standard size mattress set, the 7′X7′ San Francisco King©.

Like every McRoskey mattress set, the new San Francisco King is handcrafted to order at the McRoskey factory in San Francisco’s Central Waterfront neighborhood. The 7′X7′ San Francisco King comes complete with linens and mattress protector and is available in McRoskey’s byDesign and Classic comforts. Box spring heights can be customized.

You see, Nevius? Here’s the deal. You wrote this:

Do you see the difference, Chuck?
It’s the difference between being just another City Hall Megaphone and being, you know, an actual journalist.
