It’s a Jersey Thing: Proof that New Miss California / Miss USA Alyssa Campanella is Actually From the Garden State

Monday, June 20th, 2011

See? Sashes Don’t Lie.

Believe it or not, she’s a natural blonde (so of course she dies her hair ginger, natch). More photos here and oh, SFGate is going wall-to-wall with 30 photos.

She’s been running for Miss New Jersey-something for years, and only now does she come to California?

I cry foul.

But she’s up-to-speed on California-style marijuana legalization already:

“Well, I understand why that question would be asked, especially with today’s economy, but I also understand that medical marijuana is very important to help those who need it medically,” she replied. “I’m not sure if it should be legalized, if it would really affect, with the drug war,” she added. “I mean, it’s abused today, unfortunately, so that’s the only reason why I would kind of be a little bit against it, but medically it’s OK.”

All right, next stop, Miss Universe 2012.

Welcome to California, Alyssa Campanella.

Botox Mom Doesn’t Live in San Francisco, Despite “Published Reports” to the Contrary – Also, Nobody Ate My Hamster

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

[UPDATE: All right, well then tell me where. You need somebody to cross-examine the woman who gave birth eight years ago at 26 with a husband who was like 80, per the Sun? I can do that. Just show me where that suddenly-shy news hound is and I'll go ask her. (Oh, and I'll need some cash for her interview fee, if she demands one - hey, did she get anything from the Sun? Mmmmm...) And she's entered her daughter into beauty pageants, like plural? In San Francisco? In California? Those pageants that have no presence on the Internet in this day and age? And do beauty pageant stage moms really use botox, that's like a technique IRL?]

Let’s see here, does “Botox Mom” Kerry Campbell live in any of the 47 square miles of San Francisco?

Noooope!

And yet:

According to published reports, Campbell lived in Birmingham, England, and recently moved to San Francisco.”

Let’s see here, who published these reports?

The Sun:

Now, did somebody make a live hamster sandwich and then eat it in England?

Nope, the reporter made it up.

And yet, that’s a “published report”  in the Sun as well.

Oh well.

2011 San Francisco Chinese New Year’s Parade a Huge Success, Despite the Rain – Photos From David Yu

Monday, February 21st, 2011

(My Canon 1D Mark Whatever SLR died an early death at 140,000 clicks* possibly due to the fact that I wasn’t ascared of a little (or a lot) of rain. Nowadays I’m def. skittish, but no matter,) you can always count on famous photographer David Yu to be on the scene rain or dry.

As he was last Saturday night in Chinatown and North Beach and SoMA and the Financh and all over.

Check out his gallery of Year of the Rabbit festivities, why not?

Bunnies!

David Yu

Whoahhh Bundy!

SuperLotto? No thanks! But SuperLotto PLUS? Sounds intriguing…

And look who else was there – it’s your newly-minted Supervisor Malia Cohen:

(Yowser)

And your just-as-newly-minted Mayor Edwin Lee in the official San Francisco staff car, formerly used by General Burkhalter:

See you next year! (In scary, scary 2012, the year of the Dragon.)

*200,000 was the expected number of clicks I believe I was owed. ($300 minimum for a new shutter.) OTOH, my 5D Mark I has probably already exceeded its expected shutter life so I s’pose I shouldn’t complain too much. Living on borrowed time tho.
