Dolores Park Refugees Enjoy Alamo Square Park

Monday, April 14th, 2014

It’s pretty much the same deal.

But instead of the J-Church, you’ve got the 21 Hayes.

And instead of Buy-Rite ice cream cones being across the street, they’re a few blocks away.

Otherwise it’s pretty much the same deal

Donald Trump Really Really Wants You to See His New (Actually It’s Quite Old) Boeing 757 – Funny Video

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Well, somebody’s got to work for Donald Trump, I s’pose. Here’s lovely Amanda Miller showing off Donald Trump’s latest wing bling.

For some reason, this not-so-fresh video clip shows up on YouTube when searching for the term San Francisco  - I don’t know why.

Anywho, for DJT to call this nearly quarter century old ride “quiet” is a laugh riot. Yes Donald, it’s quiet compared with your former half-century-plus-old Boeing 727, but that’s about the best thing you can say about the matter.

Trumpy didn’t think his old airplane was heavy enough, so he had plenty of gold added inside. Is that a good thing?

And why such a small “home theatre” screen?

And Amanda, how much extra do you get paid over what you’d get working for an actual human being? Something to think about.

And Donald, what about Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico?

The peanut gallery:

what song is that?

That chick looks so stiff and uncomfortable…. Fail

OMG I want to bang that girl so bad it hurts!!!! owie!!!

dang i hate gold but I REALLY wanna go on there if i wanna go to England!

Law School Chancellors Reviewing 16-Year-Old Movies: Frank Wu of UC Hastings on Ronin (1998)

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Here it is, apropos of nothing, from Frank H. Wu, Chancellor & Dean of UC Hastings College of the Law on the HuffPo.

But we’re not talking about the recent film 47 Ronin, non non.

We’re talking about plain old Ronin, from when you were in elementary school, Gentle Reader.

Now the thing about Dean Frank is that he’s new in town. The things I disagree with him about have to do him embracing certain corrupt local institutions. Of course he sometimes needs to deal with such entities to get his job done, but he doesn’t display an awareness of the fact he’s living in the most corrupt big American city west of Chicago. For instance.

No matter, I entirely agree that Ronin is worth your time. (And I’m shocked that its Rotten Tomatoes score is in the ’60s. This is one of the best films you can see with a rating that low.)

You oughtta watch the whole thing.

Founded in 1878 by Serranus Clinton Hastings, the first Chief Justice of California, it was the first law school of the University of California…”
