The kids are calling this Corinthcore, I think:

It’s arty, I suppose, the address repeated over and over and over:

Reminds me a bit of this.
Since all the mayoral candidates are turning in signatures* at City Hall by the July 28, 2011 deadline, it’s a good time to review the difference between bona fide signatures and the other kind.
Here’s a box of (mostly) bona fide signatures from registered San Francisco voters, as seen on Van Ness last week. Each one has a (purported) San Francisco street address:

Compare that with this.
This is garbage:
BTW, the people collecting Run Ed Run signatures say stuff like, “Oh, sign for your brothers and sisters too!”
So, yes, RER, you have 30k sigs, but You Aint Bona Fide, that’s the problem.
Or rather, that’s one problem.
*Or paying $$$ in lieu of signatures, whichever.
Actually, Harvey is Tevye the Dairyman, but you know what I mean. Now let’s say that you have $30 – maybe you worked for it, or you just got your unemployment check, or that trust fund came through - it doesn’t matter. I’d have no qualms about directing you to use that dough to go see old-school Fiddler on the Roof at SHN’s bustling Golden Gate Theatre before the show ships out on February 21st.
Our Golden Gate single handedly puts the theatre into the Theatre District. The roomy seats give the big-boned and long-femured of us plenty of kneeroom compared what they have at the nearby Orpheum:
And if you see the show tonight, you’ll also get to see elements of the Westboro Baptist Church in some sort of protest out front as you’re walking in. Bonus.
See you there!
[UPDATE: And now, you can go there two hours before the show to try to get nonresellable $30 rush tickets, which I'm guessing would be for better-than-average seats. Anyway, the deets on that, after the jump.]
Oh man, the scalpers on craigslist are already at full speed, but I just now found out that Harvey Fierstein will star in Fiddler on the Roof from January 27th to February 21st at SHN‘s grand, stylish and palatial Golden Gate Theatre.
It’s going to be mega.
What’s that, you have a few concerns about Harvey as Tevye? Well then read on, below.
Here’s interviewer Boris Kachka’s recent Q&A with the feisty Fierstein:
Q. Some people have been asking, “Can Harvey actually sing in a serious role like this?” You were playing Hairspray’s Edna for comedy, after all.
A. If I had played Edna for laughs, I don’t think I would have gotten the Tony. So that’s people’s prejudice, and to me that’s just stupid.
Q. What about when people say you’re too raspy?
A. You know, Boris, you’re asking me questions that are really pissing me off. What a stupid thing to say. It’s like saying Shelley Winters is too fat to play—that’s who I am.
It’s his dream role, after all.
See you there at the GGT!
Take a look at the video here to see for yourself if JB successfully punk’d the CNBC. Are you LYAO? CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera seemed amused, anyway.
MCC on the left and California’s fightingest public representative on the right, temporarily suspending the national interview with a piece of paper:
Here’s Jer-bear’s missive in full:
“Yesterday I filed a $200 Million dollar fraud action against State Street Bank for ripping off California’s pension funds. In another example of how Wall Street elites poo poo financial abuse in their own backyard, CNBC sneered at this important effort to recover money stolen from California retirees. You can see the interview with CNBC at Calbuzz:

You know what makes you better than all those melon farmers out there? It’s the fact that you hang your hat every night in the City and County of San Francisco. That makes you special. To celebrate you, the California Academy of Sciences is offering free admission for you (and your neighbors). Just match up your zip code with the handy chart below, gather up the necessary proof of where you reside, and head on over to Golden Gate Park.
And the nice thing about this free admission program is that it probably won’t be as crowded as it sometimes gets on the third Wednesday of the month, when everyone gets in sans tariff.
Celebrated Missionites getting a little camera time in front of the green screen before entering the Cal Academy yesterday. Bide your time, your free day is coming:
