Diva Da’ Bunny and Dude Da’ Bunny Bring Bling Bling to Easter 2012 – From Lucky Supermarkets with Love

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Now I’ll tell you, I haven’t seen Diva and Dude lately, but I still have time to find them.

Lucky Supermarket, Fulton Street, Western Addition, San Francisco, California, USA:

I still have time…

That’ll keep me busy, so I’ll let Academia do all the heavy lifting:

“First, notice that the bunnies are gendered.  “Diva Da’ Bunny” is a movie star (Bling! Bling!) and Dude Da’ Bunny likes to jam to his ipod, play video games, and ogle girl bunnies.  Notice also how the dude bunny, with his giant gold medallion and hip hop clothes, is charactered as urban or “street,” maybe even Black. Do kids these days need to be bribed with gendered and racialized caricatures to get them to eat chocolate!?  Somehow I doubt it.”

Closing with a scene from Dude’s one-man-show.

Happy Easter!

Brace Yourselves – Tosca is Coming to the San Francisco Opera June 2-26

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

For the price of just one San Francisco parking ticket, you can grab two friends and go see Puccini’s Tosca at the San Francisco Opera from June 2 to June 26, 2009. That’s right, as little as $20 will get you a seat this go around. You are so there, dude!

What’s wrong with that? Read the FAQ, baby - the choices you see before you are specifically designed for opera virgins, for Philistines such as yourself. It’s accessible for All.

See you there!

An idealistic artist, a celebrated singer and a corrupt police chief engage in a fierce battle of wills in this tempestuous tale of cruelty and deception. With its themes of political intrigue, sexual intimidation and official hypocrisy, Puccini’s great melodrama set in 1800 is anything but dated. Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka, praised by The New York Times for her “lushly beautiful sound and poignant vulnerability,” makes her Company debut in the title role. Baritone Lado Ataneli (Scarpia) has been praised by the Los Angeles Times as possessing “one of the healthiest, roundest, most mellifluous voices on the planet.” Honey-voiced Italian tenor Roberto Aronica makes up the third side of this fatal love triangle.

Souter Replacement? Legally Blonde Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw from S.F.,CA

Monday, May 4th, 2009

She’s not getting too much attention from the San Francisco Bay Area MSM yet, but Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw‘s name is being queried all over the Internets this A.M. Why? ‘Cause she’s a strong candidate to replace outgoing United States Supreme Court Justice David Souter.

Judge Wardlaw ladles out bowls of rich, creamy justice in Pasadena mostly, but she probably comes to San Francisco to visit the H.Q. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. And guess what? She was born here! A short bio:

“Judge Wardlaw was born on July 2, 1954, in San Francisco, California. She grew up in the Bay Area, raised by her Mexican-American mother, who worked as a bookkeeper, and her Scotch-Irish father, who worked as a door-to-door furniture salesman.”

The judge et vir:

[Horrible red-eye effect reduced in post, somewhat, so don’t rely on this for eye color.]

Now, about that Legally Blonde stuff. Check it:  

“During my second set of confirmation proceedings, I was told that some people thought I wasn’t smart enough because I looked like a California girl (which I proudly am). I actually empathize a bit with Reese Witherspoon’s character in “Legally Blonde”– during my first semester at UCLA, no one invited me to be in their study group!”

So there, you have it. Oh, and how about her answer here:

Q. On a related note, do you consider yourself to be a judicial diva?

A. Yes.

O.K. then. See what the New Republic and what the SCOTUS blog thought about KMW back in the day, and look at this relatively recent take as well, if you want.  

Could Favorite Daughter Kim McLane Wardlaw rise from little old San Francisco all the way up to the SCOTUS? Only Time Will Tell.

Diva da’ Bunny an Dude da’ Bunny Bring Bling Bling to Easter, Once Again

Friday, April 10th, 2009

Supplies of Diva da’ Bunny and her friend Dude da’ Bunny were low this Spring in the bay area. Perhaps the unusually low number of WalMart stores in the 415 / 510 / 650 regions can explain why we didn’t get our fair share of chocolate hip hop.

As Diva da’ Bunny says: “Bling! Bling!”

Here’s a haunting visage, huh?

Make sure you don’t pick up the evil version by mistake:

Have a happy Easter Spring Break!

Thank Gaia we still have photos of these Vernal Equinox Lagomorphs.

Ah memories.
