All right, when you’re doing your ENG (Electronic News Gathering) on the streets of San Francisco, as this one was doing the day after Donald Trump somehow got elected President, you’ve got some basic things to worry about.
The first is crime – either somebody will want to steal your stuff, at gunpoint sometimes, or they’ll want to vandalize your mobile news van. One way to handle this is to maintain a low profile. One way to do that is paint your van white in a plain vanilla wrapper, so that’s why most networked news vans are unmarked in the 415.
And the second, well, it’s handling complaints from the Gentle Viewers and passersby who start complaining about all the fumes your news van spews our hour after hour. So you attach a garden hose to direct exhaust up to the roof, thusly:
Like, how does this help?
Here’s the other way of doing it:
I’ll tell you, I can see how this kind of thing could lead to problems, you know, mechanically, but my real question is HOW DOES THIS HELP, AT ALL?
MTV Wants You: “REAL WORLD” is Casting in Frisco on Friday, March 25th, 2016 – “Strong Personalities” DesiredMonday, March 14th, 2016
It’s new, it’s you. It’s now, it’s wow:
“MTV’s “REAL WORLD” LOOKING FOR NEWEST ROOMMATES – Bunim/Murray is Looking for New Stars in SAN FRANCISCO!
The search is on for seven lucky strangers to become the newest stars of MTV’s iconic reality series, “Real World.” Casting has now begun for the show that started it all!
An open casting call is taking place at:
FRIDAY, MARCH 25th, 2016
685 3rd Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
So who are the next stars of “Real World”? “We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” says Jonathan Murray, Executive Producer of “Real World.” Past seasons have been populated with cast members from diverse backgrounds, who have shared their daily experiences and over-the-top personalities with millions of viewers. Fans of the show will remember alumni such as Puck, the outrageous bike messenger; Cohutta; the hilarious, folksy mountain-man; Katelyn, the opinionated trans woman; Isaac, who raised naked fish tank snorkeling to an art form; Dustin, the Southern gentleman with a scandalous secret; and Nany and Adam, whose stormy romance rocked the Real World house.
“Real World” thrives on having a diverse and dynamic cast. Our ideal candidate has a larger-than-life personality, a unique life story, an adventurous spirit and a personal magnetism that draws attention whenever they walk in the room. We are looking for open-minded and open-hearted people who can make us laugh and cry. We also love people who are at a turning point in their lives and have big decisions to make about their future.
As always, “Real World” welcomes anyone with a great personality and a willingness to share their life with the world. Most of all, we are looking for surprising and unusual life stories that have yet to be told on television.
Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo ID. You must be 21 years or older by June 2016, and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24.
For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email.

In Most of America MSM TV News Vans have Loud, Garish Logos, But in the San Francisco Bay Area, We Generally See Plain White Wrappers – Why’s That?Friday, February 19th, 2016
The anonymouser, the better:
This is on Battery in our MSM Ghetto, but I get all these channels all mixed up. These particular vans above are not from KGO, that’s all I know.
Sometimes there are clues as to whose doing the news inside, but generally not.
Now these are KGO vans.
Some local outfits do go for loud and garish, but they do so at their own risk.
As I tried to tell a newcomer Tech Bro just a few days ago, Things Are Different Here…
Wow, Rachel Campos, Puck’s Friend from MTV’s “Real World San Francisco” Kick’s Off Scott Walker’s Presidential CampaignThursday, July 16th, 2015
I’ll tell you, back in the day I didn’t have the cable TV. So my bud would tape MTV’s Real World San Francisco and then people would come over to watch it on VHS cassette on the “big screen” TV, a 27″ Sony Trinitron.
I’ll tell you, RWSF was a BFD back in ’94. It was the talk of the town. These people were all over the place. (Poor MTV – they were shocked at how hard it was to get area bar owners and the like to agree to allow entry for taping the show.) Anyway, it looked like this:
So that was then, but this is now. It’s Rachel, all growed up with seven kids? Jeez. And she’s a member of the Congressional Wives Foundation? Wow. So that’s why…
…she was able to introduce Scott Walker at his kickoff. Check it. Via The Gist.
(Oh, I have some notes though. OK Rache, you’re giving us a 12. Why not dial that back to a 4?)
Man that’s sort of painful to listen to. Seems as if she spent less time preparing than delivering.
Is this what cable TV is like?
IDK, I still don’t have the cable…
86 complete shows have been posted so far.
Here’s a sample of the first four, 75% of which revolve around the deaths of “girls” in their 20’s. To wit:
“girl found dead in the water”
“would-be Jack the Ripper stalks the city, slashing prostitutes to death”
“feels responsible for the death of a female hitchhike”
(Mmmm, is it possible that posting these eps could stimulate DVD sales? IDK.)
Be my guest if you have the time to watch any of them. I’m sure there are old scenes of the Bay Area I’d like to see, but somebody will need to go through and pick out the good parts and string them together afore I’ll watch any part of any TSOSF rerun, sorry.
