Heh: Asian Art Museum “Loses” Terracotta Warrior – “2,112 Years Old, About 5’ 5” Tall, Mud-Colored, and Doesn’t Speak English”

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Heh:

“The Asian Art Museum needs your help. One of our terracotta warriors is lost, and we have to find him before China’s Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor’s Legacy opens on February 22. What we know is this: a small group of terracotta warriors journeyed from their home in China to the museum—but somewhere along the way, this one took a wrong turn and is now missing. He’s 2,112 years old, about 5’ 5” tall, mud-colored, and doesn’t speak English.”

“If you spot him, please post a photo on Twitter, Instagram, or our Facebook wall and tag it with #LOSTWARRIOR so we can track his whereabouts on this map. Even if you don’t have photos, share and tag your tips and leads with #LOSTWARRIOR. Every little bit counts.
REWARD: Those who help may be eligible to win passes to the exhibition. Please spread the word, and thanks! Here’s our director Jay Xu with a personal call to action.

Heh.

The Wild Coyotes of Golden Gate Park: Richmond District Resident Gets Some Great Shots on Easter Sunday

Monday, April 9th, 2012

Look what Richmond District resident and photographer David Cruz spotted yesterday afternoon:

“Early this morning, I was walking through the forrest on the West end of Golden Gate Park when I saw 2 ears and 2 eyes watching me. I stood still and was able to take a few pictures.

Big ears like an Easter Bunny but it turned to be an Easter coyote :)

I’ve never been this close to a coyote in San Francisco and I haven’t seen any lately…

It’s good to know that San Francisco’s urban coyotes can live in peace out there…

 

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.

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!

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.
