By “new” I mean new to me, as they’ve been out for a while now.

Have I mentioned yet that MUNI sucks? Forgive me.*

Bonus: Also included in the delivery was a limited edition of SIDE WALKS:

“The San Francisco Museum at the Mint in collaboration with the North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District presents “Neighbors,” fifty environmental portraits by Troy Holden as a photographic essay of the Tenderloin, South of Market, and Mid-Market neighborhoods. “Side Walks” is a collection of photographs made in downtown San Francisco by Bay Area photographers Chris Beale, Brian Reynaldo Cayetano Jr., Brandon Doran, Troy Holden, David Root and Oscar Santos.”

All the deets:

Side Walks” and “Neighbors”: Show is open through Aug. 17; reception (free admission) 6-9 p.m. next Thursday. 1-4 p.m. Sundays. $10. San Francisco Museum at the Mint, 88 Fifth St., S.F. (415) 537-1105. www.sfhistory.orgTo watch a short video go to: http://bit.ly/1ovCiGD.

See you there!

*IMO, it’s important to point out that “MUNI Sucks” (or something similar, you know, something pithy) right at the beginning whenever the SFMTA or MUNI is the topic at hand. Acknowledging this fact from the get-go tends to make the ensuing conversation more productive. Of course, the SFMTA won’t ever shower you with taxpayer money if you even just once point out that MUNI sucks, but at least you’ll avoid being like these people:

“…lately. seriously, we haven’t received many (if any) “muni sucks/fuck muni” posts or emails…”

Now if you really want to cheer lead for MUNI, make sure you’re getting a $200,000 annual pay package first – that’s the way you do it.

The Fox Network’s “National Dance Day” Celebrated at Powell Street Cable Car Turnaround

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Did you know that the Fox Network goes around and starts up national holidays? Apparently, they’re on their way:

National Dance Day on July 31, 2010,… was created by So You Think You Can Dance executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles, introduced a National Dance Day resolution to promote dance education and physical fitness across the U.S.”

At first I thought these kids from “Illegal Talent” were filming a Spike Jonez* / Fatboy Slim Praise You remake but that proved incorrect:
