Ah mem’ries:

Wow, this one has it all.

Via Bluoz and from the perspective of those in line at the Nike Air Yeezy 2 campout at Sheikh shoes, it’s:

“Air Yeezy 2 Campout Fight in SF”

Just 23 views so far, but this one, she’s a gonna go viral.

“Air Yeezy 2 campout fight in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. All this happened while we were in line at Shiekh Shoes. This crackhead hopped on the front of the trolly and wouldn’t get off, so when the lady in pink tried to be a hero she got a SMACK SMACK to the face. Air Yeezy campout. Shout out to the homies that were holding my spot down for me while I was at work. Big thanks.”

Color commentary:

“Get her, Grandma!”

“She’s leaking. She’s leaking.” (In reference to AC TRANSIT BUS FIGHT I AM A MOTHERFUCKER, aka AC Transit Bus Fight)

“That’s some crazy shit – laid out under a train.”

Oh, and then a mess of cops showed up.

Of course, the solution to all this is to give Twitter $20,000,000 and its own bus line so it stays in town.

Mayor Ed Lee Gets It Done!

RUN ED, RUN!

“Pierre the Penguin: A True Story” Launches at CalAcademy – The Best Book Reading Ever

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Wetsuits and and live animals – that’s what all book readings should have. And that’s the way it was this morning at our California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park when the new book Pierre the Penguin: A True Story made its debut.

And the reviews are in.

The bird himself, back when he needed a jacket:

After a thumbs up from the kids…

..it was time for a penguin feeding:

And there he is, famous Pierre, in the middle. His feathers growed back…

…so he no longer has a need for his wetsuit:

Here are the deets:

“When Pierre – an elderly penguin at the California Academy of Sciences – begins to go bald, the staff is worried. Without his feathers, Pierre is too cold to swim. He also looks different from the rest of the colony, so the other penguins begin to pick on him. Academy biologists try every treatment in the books to prompt new feather growth, but none of the traditional strategies work. Finally, aquatic biologist Pam Schaller has an idea: why not fit the shivering bird with a neoprene wetsuit to keep him warm? She designs a tiny wetsuit especially for Pierre, but will it work? Told in rhyme by noted I SPY author Jean Marzollo, and paired with gorgeous paintings from acclaimed wildlife artist Laura Regan, this inspirational true story comes to life.”

This tome will be on sale at the CalAcademy.

Your next chance to get in on the fun will be at one of the upcoming Penguins and Pajamas.

Penguins and Pajamas – Stay Overnight With Your Kid at the California Academy of Sciences!

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Oh it’s on! Grab a slot on one of these upcoming Friday nights, June 18, July 16, or August 13, 2010, and then head over to our fantastic California Academy of Sciences with your kid for an overnighter.

It’s a Night at the Museum, baby! Check it:

“Participants can take in the evening songs of the rainforest birds, sing “twinkle twinkle” to a sea star at the Discovery Tidepool, and watch the fish cruise under the moonlight in the Philippine Coral Reef tank. Then, guests can catch a special penguin talk, and become stargazing gurus during an after-hours planetarium show.

“Before bedtime, sleepover guests can grab a snack of cookies and milk and settle in for story time, featuring “Pierre the Penguin,” the true story of the Academy’s famous wetsuit-wearing penguin. When the lights go out, participants can unroll their sleeping bags in African Hall, next to the swaying kelp of the California Coast tank, or even at the Swamp window, face-to-face with Claude, the albino alligator. In the morning, it’s time to rise and shine, then head over to the Academy Café for breakfast before the sleepover event ends at 8:30 am.”

If you’re an Academy Member, then all this is just $99 per kid aged six and up.
