OMG, Sting Plays Frisco June 2nd! At the “America’s Cup Pavilion?” Yes – That’s the New Name for Piers 27-29

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

I’ll tell you, I don’t know why former Mayor Gavin Newsom trying to cut a sweetheart deal with Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison in exchange for being made Honorable, Grand Exalted Ambassador at Large for the America’s Cup 2013 isn’t considered a form of bribery, but there you go.

Anyway, the upshot is that Sting will have a place to perform his greatest hits in the 415 on June 2nd, 2013. Ticks go on sale February 22nd. Deets below.

Uh, how many motor yachts are going to putt-putt across the Atlantic and through the Panama canal to see a staged race of overly-large catamarans and how much money will the Eurotrash spend in town while they’re here? Not as many/much as “projected,” that’s for sure. Presenting your wasteful (and yet somehow “sustainable”) America’s Cup 34:

All the deets, after the jump.

San Francisco’s Phil Bronstein Plays the Colbert Report – Tonight, Tonight, Tonight!

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

You all know San Francisco Chronicle / Hearst Communications editor-at-large Phil Bronstein, right? He is The One responsible for our nation’s recent newspaper upheaval, don’t you know.

Well, just now he’s taping a segment for tonight’s airing of the Colbert Report, so watch it tonight at 8:30 PM (or 11:30 PM, one of those, probably) on Channel 63, the Comedy Central comedy channel.

Will Phil rely on Bullet Time to dodge the slings and arrows from Stephen Colbert? We Can Only Hope:

PB as Neo.

Be sure to tune in tonight!

Phil Bronstein Claims “I Am The One” Responsible for Current Newspaper Upheaval

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Apparently, San Francisco Chronicle / Hearst Communications editor-at-large Phil Bronstein am become Death, Destroyer of Worlds. But there’s an upside to our recent newspaper upheaval:

My old officemate, Eve Batey, ex of SFist, is launching the San Francisco Appeal news web site this week with former Chronicle investigative reporter and editor, Chuck Finnie. The SF-based Public Press, describing itself as non-profit, non-commercial, donation-supported news operation, recently advertised on Craigslist for journalists and ended up hiring former Oakland Tribune editor, Michelle Fitzhugh-Craig, a definite pro.

See? It looks like things might shake out all right after all.

Like Neo in the matrix, he is The One.
