Wow, 8th Grader from Marin County Teaches KTVU About the Dangers of Live TV – A New Meme – Double NSFWWednesday, November 26th, 2014
A well-chosen headline:
“Local boy video bombs news reporter at Giants parade with offensive phrase”
And a nice quote:
”Now, my 8th grade son and the rest of his friends are praising him as a hero: ‘He’s got millions of likes/views! He is famous on the Internet!’”
Remember, this is NSFWX2. Keep a look out for the squirrely kid on the right. (The advantage this video has is that it’s title doesn’t have bad words in it.)
Does KTVU use a five-second delay or something, on their live broadcasts?

I’ve never stayed at the Lodge myself, but it looks pretty sweet.
A slower pace of life:
These days, the Great Lawn is full of brown grass:
When oh when will our drought end?
The Q! – How Any Monkey Can Use Photoshop on This Shot of San Quentin – The Miracle of the Healing Brush ToolWednesday, October 29th, 2014
I’ll tell you, I know every street, alley and pathway of northern San Francisco and southern Marin, you know, like the back me hand, Matey. But this part of Marin, near San Quentin Prison, I don’t know that well, so I figured I’d take a shot and then later on ID those peaks on the ridge and also that massive-looking apartment-looking building on the right there. (Or is it a hospital? IDK, maybe. I think I’ve been there, actually. It sure is tall for Marin County…)
Anywho, here’s the shot – note those light poles with direct sunlight on them.
I’ll bet the Spot Healing Brush Tool could clear things up in a jiffy. You just drag your mouse over the stuff you want gone and poof, it’s gone. Photoshop simply guesses at what it thinks is there IRL. It’s like magic, no skillz required:
Is this acceptable? Well, sure. It depends on what you’re using a shot for. I don’t think this thing would fly with the San Francisco Chronicle, but for an ad or something, sure.
Just don’t release two versions of the same shot, ala Kent State, and you should be fine.
[UPDATE: Welcome NIMBYs! Here’s a little reading for you, just keep on paging down…]
Here’s a US Coast Guard Dolphin helicopter heading north on its way to attempt to save the life of a person up in Marin County.
As seen over Ocean Beach, which was closed to swimming yesterday, owing to high surf conditions:
Someday maybe San Francisco will have a hospital with a functioning helipad…
“Assessing the demographic in the room, the mayor then made a request of these parents who, while able to afford private school, are also potentially able to help support the city’s public schools: ‘Please stay in San Francisco and don’t move to Marin!‘”
