Don’t know what this new thing does, or what it emits. Might make a nice street stool though:

“OOOOH, Barracuda” – A Classic Plymouth with HEART- Mopar Madness in Golden Gate Park

Sing along: Barracuda.

I think this is it – this is the best license plate / car combo I’ve ever seen:

Know your Plymouth ‘Cudas.

Ooooh, street cred, sort of:

“In 2009, it was named the 34th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.”


“Ann Wilson revealed in interviews that the song was about Heart’s anger towards Mushroom Records’ attempted publicity stunt involving her and her sister Nancy Wilson in a made-up incestuous affair. The song particularly focuses on Ann’s rage towards a man who came up to her after a concert asking how her “lover” was. She initially thought he was talking about her boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher. After he revealed he was talking about her sister Nancy, Ann became angry and went back to her hotel room to write the original lyrics of the song.”

And if the real thing don’t do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick
Ooooh, barracuda
Oh, yeah

But if you want to wallow in alarmism, well then be my guest

What other unknowns are hidden out there at TI? I’m sure we’ll all find out over the next 10, 20, 30 years…

Word comes today from Bluoz about the dangers of wild mushrooms in the Bay Area.

“This poster was made just three weeks ago by a Woodside, California resident who’s dog died recently from eating poisonous mushrooms on their front lawn:

The URL in the poster refers to the North American Mycological Society which produces their own warning posters:

Let’s be careful out there.

The Delicious Wild Mushrooms of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Well, what do we have here growing up near the western side of a Blue Gum Eucalyptus betwixt the Pandhandle Bike Path and busy, busy Fell Street? About ten pounds of yummy mushrooms, it looks like. (Who says you can’t score shrooms in the Haight anymore?)

So get suited up (as in the most disturbing Youtube video ever: Dancing man wearing a horse mask cooks wild mushrooms (age verification required)) and get hunting. 

Oh wait a moment, on second thought, never eat wild mushrooms from Northern Califonia. You think you know what you’re doing (and maybe actually do, back in the old country) but never eat wild mushrooms from Northern Califonia. Addidtionally, the second rule of Mushroom Club is never eat wild mushrooms from Northern California.

Carry on.
