Much cheaper at the Costco I’m sure, than here.

As seen above the 94117 – it reminded me of seeing this C-2A Greyhound flying about the Golden Gate Bridge one time.
Everybody flies these C-130 birds – the Blue Angels, the Air Force, the Coast Guard. Even my dad drove them around, many years ago. But I guess we have too many?
I think we have too many, too many old ones, anyway.
Have you taken the fam to Zeum, San Francisco’s Hands-on, Multimedia Arts and Technology Museum for Kids, down in the SoMA? Well then, take a listen to Executive Director Audrey or Associate Director of Marketing Joy.
Now, check it:

“Zeum will feature interactive The Clone Wars-themed activities, costumes, workshops, exhibits and lightsaber activities.

Inspired fans can also write a script, mix a soundtrack and direct their own Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode using Zeum’s green screen special effects.
Other highlights include photo opportunities with Star Wars: The Clone Wars characters and special guests.
All the deets, after the jump.
Famed five-star Yelp-rated Coronet Theatre at 3575 Geary near Palm Avenue in the Inner Richmond district done closed down with a final showing of Million Dollar Baby on March 17, 2005. Did people camp out for ages to be first in line for a Star Wars movie premier back in the day? Oh yes. But that’s all history now.
These days, straight-out-of-Hayward Peck and Hiller is laying concrete For The Future, which will take form of a building from the Institute on Aging for housing seniors. We shall take a look-see, non?
The mise-en-scene. Click to expand:
Let’s take a peek up there at The Toughest Job You’ll Ever Love. This tower crane operator sits and stands to make everything work.
Rebar sailing above Geary Boulevard. Mind the spilled motor oil…
And here’s what it will all look like, if you can see past the chain link and graffiti:
It’s too bad we lost the Coronet, but just try filling a 1300-seat one-screen theater in this Day and Age.
Get ready for the Inner Richmond, seniors!
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Coronet, Coronet the Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all bay areans have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her projection, and the kings of Hollywood have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the Earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
There was a time when a big movie like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull would open at a place like the now-deceased Coronet Theater. But The Castro was doing pretty well for itself last night with a packed house on the first day of the new Indy.
Bullwhip? (Doesn’t everybody in San Francisco have one already?) Free.
Costco drinking water? $.12 plus $.05 CRV.
Fedora? $29.97 from Lucky Supermarket.
Memories of entertaining the long lines of people waiting to get a good seat? Priceless.
View from the balcony includes an old-skool organist and a proper chandelier
So turn up your hearing aid (if you have one, as the Castro Theatre’s sound system seems a tad on the quiet side) and get on out there!
