The Departure of Weathergirl Christina Loren from KNTV NBC San Jose is Upsetting a LOT of People

Friday, May 29th, 2015

[UPDATE: If you want updates on Christina, as thousands of you do, apparently, click on over to this Christina Loren page at RICH LIEBERMAN 415 MEDIA to get all the deets – he keeps up with things, to say the least.]

I’ll tell you, the only time I’ve watched NBC the past decade is at a few Super Bowl parties, the ones I can’t/couldn’t host myself because … NBC monopolizes the Super Bowl every three years, like clockwork, and I live in the center of Frisco with only a rabbit ear antenna to catch glimpses of the vast TV wasteland.

Anywho, I don’t know why tens of thousands have visited this tiny WordPress looking for info about Christina “Loren” recently – I suppose they’re just discovering the news of her recent departure from KNTV?

Here’s a snapshot of the Search Engine Terms people use to get to this site in order of popularity, currently. See? Like, “WHAT HAPPENED TO CHRISTINA LOREN” ‘n stuff like that:

Here’s an old post – it’s gotten hundreds of comments over the years, including a few from Christina’s household itself/Christina herself (I can’t narrow it down), if you can believe that, you generally “unkempt” Bay Area women, you “haters” both male and female.

Now I’ll tell you, whatever you say about Christina “Loren,” you can’t say she wouldn’t immediately boost the ratings of any Bay Area Station what hired her, when and if that’s possible…

Leaving you with a thumbnail of the most epic animated gif ever:

ULTIMATE PARKING MACHINE? – OMG, Viral Video: “Crazy Bay Area Driver Parking Her BMW #FAIL”

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Stanley Roberts feels that this one could still go viral – he thinks it’s Jimmy Kimmel-worthy.

I’m inclined to agree.

Wow, just wow.

What did she give him – $5, $20?

An now here’s the kicker. How to get out of the very same space?

Imagine this woman confronting the crazy-striped JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park – what would happen?

Thanks Wayne R – keep ‘em coming!

Take a Look at Japantown in 1942: “Cherryland Sukiyaki (Japanese and American), 1650 Post St., sake and beer”

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Oh wow, man. I’m not used to seeing outer Post Street from the pre-Redevelopment era.

Western Addition: Cherryland Sukiyaki (Japanese and American), 1650 Post St., sake and beer

Hansel Mieth and Otto Hagel—Streets of San Francisco, 1942

(Then the people from SPUR came along with “ideas and action for a better city” to Urban Renewal this place with big, hulking, earthquake-unsafe buildings (“The Mall Has It All!” – that’s what the SPUR people used to say before they changed their name to hide from their legacy) and garages and that’s where we are today.)

Esquire: “For Sukiyaki complete with chopsticks, visit “Cherryland,” where only Japanese food is served.”

OMG, See 1970’s SF on YouTube for Free Courtesy of “The Streets Of San Francisco Full Episodes”

Somebody‘s posting complete episodes of The Streets of San Francisco 1970’s buddy-cop TVdrama on YouTube?!

Check it: 

86 complete shows have been posted so far.

Here’s a sample of the first four, 75% of which revolve around the deaths of “girls” in their 20’s. To wit:

“girl found dead in the water”

 “would-be Jack the Ripper stalks the city, slashing prostitutes to death”

 “feels responsible for the death of a female hitchhike”

Meh.

(Mmmm, is it possible that posting these eps could stimulate DVD sales? IDK.)

Be my guest if you have the time to watch any of them. I’m sure there are old scenes of the Bay Area I’d like to see, but somebody will need to go through and pick out the good parts and string them together afore I’ll watch any part of any TSOSF rerun, sorry.

“Many actors guest-starred on the show; some were relatively unknown at the time and became successful stars in their own feature films or television series. Guest stars included: Pernell RobertsEdmond O’BrienRicky NelsonRon GlassSusan DeyMarion RossVan WilliamsPaula KellyDon JohnsonTom Selleck,Leslie NielsenJames WoodsNick NolteArnold SchwarzeneggerMartin SheenDabney ColemanDavid WayneVera MilesBrenda VaccaroDesi Arnaz, Jr.,Tony YoungCal BelliniMarshall ColtPat ConwayPatty DukeDenver PyleRichard EganRichard EasthamRodolfo Hoyos, Jr.Don KeeferWright KingFlip MarkNora MarloweJohn RitterRobert WagnerWayne MaunderDick Van PattenMark HamillStefanie PowersTom BosleyLarry HagmanTim O’ConnorBill BixbyJohn DavidsonEve McVeaghNorman FellAnthony GearyCharles AidmanBeverly WashburnMichael ConstantineLen BirmanPaul Michael Glaser,David SoulLuther AdlerLaurie Heineman, and Meredith Baxter, among many others.

Simon appeared eight times as Captain Rudy Olsen. Gary Vinson appeared toward the end of his career.”
