Filmed in Frisco: “The Net” – Sandra Bullock – 20th Anniversary – MacWorld 1995 – DotCom 1.0 – KTVU’s Elaine Coral & Dennis Richardson

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Here you go: The Net, filmed on location in the 415 for a day or two back in 1995 and released exactly 20 years ago, during the beginnings of  Dotcom 1.0.

The Gist is that quite attractive hackr gurl Sandra Bullock is such is such a social loser that nobody in the world knows who she is, except for her mom with Alzheimer’s and former beau Dennis Leary(!)

So when the bad guys erase her identity, there’s nobody around to prove who she really is. (Man, this movie sucks – it’s a thriller without thrills. I’m glad I’ve never seen it.)

But let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane:

Bennett finally tracks down the net conspiracy to San Francisco, where the HQ of the ‘Cathedral’ corporation is 1 Post Street at Market Street. The climactic ‘Pan-Pacific Computer Convention’ used a real Apple convention at the Moscone Center, Howard Street between Third and Fourth Streets in San Francisco.”

And now, some screen shots.

So single female loser drives a big BMW sedan? I don’t think so, Hollywood, but thanks for heavily featuring the BMW “roundel” propeller logo in every scene that you possibly could. (Was is it her dead boyfriend’s ride? IDK.) And let’s all laugh at the huge “car phones” of the day, but they actually worked better as phones than our “devices” of 2015. And oh yeah, the fuzz is on her back door in this very scene – these days you can get a moving violation ticket for this “primary offense” and KRON TV’s Stanley Roberts would be videoing her for a segment of People Behaving Badly:

(Those are news readers I recognize, ’cause I’m old. IDK who reads the news these days.)

Oh look, McKesson Plaza! AKA One Post Street. Sadly, the gold letters were covered up by the Hollywood Freaks. Note the crimson red banners for an upcoming AIDS vigil. I’ll tell you, real candlelight vigils can be arresting, a river of light coming at you and stretching out for a half-mile. The one in this movie looked like just another parade.

And here’s your MacWorld 1995:

And there you have it.

Have at it if you want.

Giveaway at Zog’s Dogs a Huge Success Down in the Financh

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

I’ll tell you, last year, Zog’s Dogs had a giveaway – it wasn’t no thang. But this year’s Free Dog Day was publicized on SFist and SFGate, San Francisco’s online newspaper, so the queue was as high as an elephant’s eye.

See? This was the scene in the morning, with the line stretching beyond view before the lunch hour even began.

Now, EaterSF has the deets on this afternoon’s mayhem. It was dog eat dog out there, apparently.

Bon Courage, Zog’s Dogs!

Free Hot Dog Day at Zog’s Dogs on Post Street a Huge Success

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

So there I was on Market Street yesterday pulling my old scam – I go up to the Zog’s Dogs at One Post Street near Montgomery and I says:

‘We’re gonna order then Yelp about it – what discount can you give us?’

With a quickness I had a free dog in my paw. See?

Of course, it was broken in the middle, just like our Bay Bridge, but quite tasty nevertheless. The regular price might seem a littley pricy if you’re used to Costco’s inflation-fighting $1.50 Hot Dog and a Coke Deal. I prefer the taste of Zog’s, I’d have to say.   

Read about owner Jessie Herzog’s history of “love for sausages wrapped in buns” in this Proclamation from the Wizard:
