It really makes you think.

The flight nurse attends me
But I can’t wait to see the doctor
Be smart shrink the world?

The Best Photos and Videos from the Great 2010 Valentines Day Pillow Fight

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Can you make sense of this scene at San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza near the Embarcadero Ferry Building? (Perhaps a black-and-white, slo-mo Raging Bull-style video or this official 1080p will help.)

It was the Yelp-rated Great Valentine’s Day Pillow Fight of February 14th, 2010! This joint went down yesterday despite a threatened crackdown from San Francisco’s Park Rangers and an ominous warning from San Francisco Director of Public Health Mitchell Katz - he fretted about the risk of corneal abrasions, penetrating injuries, and even orbital fractures.” Captain Bringdown, M.D. documented 17 injuries from last year that were serious enough to require medical attention at emergency rooms. Hope 2010 was safer.

Artist Chor Boogie Stabbed Twice on Market Street Over This Spray Paint Collection

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Read all about the stabbings that sent graffiti artist Chor Boogie (aka Jason Hailey of Glen Park) from Mid-Market to the emergency room last Saturday night in this bit from Mike Aldax. And video here from Lilian Kim.

This was the scene Saturday night, when I was trying to figure out how much the Feds were kicking in (if any) to this little project. (You know, these days, The Feds Must Be Crazy*, I don’t know, something must have gotten into them - Bridge to Nowhere, Mana From Heaven “Also Benefits Newsom“, the Chinatown Subway (aka Big Dig West - will our costs overrun by 1000% also?) - Uncle Sucker just might run out of our money one of these days. Oh well.) 

Mr. Boogie’s amazing Technicolor palette, as seen that evening, a scant half-hour before things got stabby:

But he’s back on his feet, back at it. Good for him:

“YES IT IS SO ..I GOT STABBED TWICE LAST NIGHT BY SOME GRAFITTI VIGILANTES / SPRAY PAINT THIEVES WHILE IM WORKING ON MY 100FT OR SO LONG MURAL ON BEAUTIFUL MARKET ST.. THIS DOESNT STOP THE SHOW.. I AM ALL RIGHT AND WANTED TO GO BACK TODAY ACTUALLY TO PAINT SOME MORE..BUT NEED SOME HEALING TIME WILL BE THERE SHORTLY IN THE WEEK OR SO.. . THIS COULD OF HAPPENED ANYWHERETO ANYONE AND MARKET STREET IS STILL AMAZING AND LOOK FORWARD TO HELPING BEAUTIFY THE COMMUNITY…..CRISIS PRECIPATATES CHANGE..AND CHANGE IT SHALL…THE SHINING..”

Get that, man, “the shining.”

Keep on keeping on, Chor Boogie!
