It’s OK to Drive Around San Francisco with Expired License Plates, As Long as They’re Not California Plates

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

The SFPD and CHP would be all over you if you cruised the 415 with a rear license plate equipped with tags from 2004.

But, if you have Nevada state plates, then it’s all good.

Apparently:

Or Oregon. Many people love to avoid taxes and parking tickets and other hassles by using license plates from Oregon.

You’ve beaten the system, baby.

Hurray!

OMGUNRVSBCATATTONESPN! Nevada to Play Boston College at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, Jan. 9th, AT&T Park

Monday, December 6th, 2010

OMG, UNR VS BC AT ATT ON ESPN! Well, here’s the news – the almost-perfect University of Nevada, Reno Wolf Pack (and 10,000 rabid fans from the Silver State) will be a coming to town to take down the Boston College Eagles at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

Check it:

Boston College, riding a five game winning streak* to close out the regular season, will face No. 13 Nevada in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl game at AT&T Park.  The 7-5 Eagles and 12-1 Wolf Pack will play Sunday, January 9, 2011 with a 6 p.m. /9:00 p.m. EST kickoff.  ESPN will televise the game to a nationwide audience.”

“Frankly, I don’t see how Nevada can lose.” Try using that line when you’re chilling at the UNR pre-game party at Pedro’s Cantina.

Anyway, http://www.kraftbowl.org/tickets/embl-tickets.html.

Here are your Boston College Eagles…

…and here’s that Wolf Pack from Nevada:

*That would match their recent five-game losing streak, would it not?

It’s tough to beat Nevada, which would have had a perfect season if it hadn’t had to play away at Hawaii this year.  I mean this is the same team that just beat (eventually) the (former #3) Boise State Broncos, right? There are just too many in the wolfpack, and QB Colin Kaepernick will be sure to connect like NYNEX, unless it’s snowing or there’s some other Act of Gaia going on or something.

All the the deets, after the jump.

OMG, the NCAA’s Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl is Almost Here: Who Will Play at AT&T Park – Boston College, Boise State?

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

The annual Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (that new name is starting to sound normal to me already) is a coming to the Phone Booth on Sunday, January 9th, 2011.

Where else will you watch an NCAA bowl game in NorCal?

Get your tickets now….

The Hub has all the deets:

“The Sun Bowl and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, two bowl games with Pac-10 tie-ins, will likely be scrambling to find replacements for a Pac-10 team. Both Oregon (Pac-10 champ) and Stanford (automatic BCS at-large) appear to be BCS bowl bound, while UCLA and California became bowl in-eligible over the weekend. That leaves the conference with just three bowl eligible teams with two more — Washington (at Washington State) and Oregon State (Oregon) — needing a win in their final game to get to six wins. Of the two teams, only Washington seems like a sure thing to become the fourth bowl-eligible team from the conference. That Pac-10 will likely see their fourth bowl-eligible team, Washington, land in the Holiday Bowl, leaving the Sun, Las Vegas and Kraft Fight Hunger bowl scrambling to fill their bowl slots.”

Animated Al Gore Sex-Crazed Poodle Video: Another Winner from Taiwan’s NMA

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

I don’t know, when you’re paying people $540 for massages, misunderstandings can happen. That’s about the most charitable way of looking at things vis-a-vis Al Gore in this whole massage incident.

Anyway, comes now NMA, the people who make animated videos to explain the news to people in Taiwan. This one is a doozy.

In this scene, Al G. explains the ground rules:

Uh oh, he’s getting p’oed:

Explaining the poodle reference:

Not sure what W and Pink are doing in there, but oh well:

Enjoy.

Former US vice president and climate change warrior Al Gore is in hot water after news emerged this week of a 2006 close encounter with a hotel masseuse in Oregon. In a statement made to Portland police reported in the press, the 54-year-old masseuse recounted how she repeatedly had to fight off groping Gore as he made several attempts to bed her after she attended his hotel suite to administer a massage. So far, no charges have been filed.

美國前副總統高爾(Al Gore)上月才驚傳與結縭40年妻子分道揚鑣,現在又驚爆性醜聞。美國媒體報導,一名奧勒岡州女按摩師在2006年曾指控高爾性攻擊,甚至聲稱當晚所穿內衣留有高爾的DNA,可資佐證。
美國

根據《國家詢問報》等媒體報導,這名不願透露身分的54歲女按摩師指稱,2006年10月在飯店安排下,替以化名「史東先生」入住的高爾按摩。
抓手迫摸下體

當她按摩到腹部時,高爾要求她繼續往下,遭拒後大發雷霆,並抓住她的手碰觸自己鼠蹊部。按摩結束後,高爾愛撫她的胸臀、親她,還將她推上床,只差沒霸王硬上弓。
該女子在數周後才報案,表示當時「完全嚇呆,擔心失去工作」。據帳單顯示,按摩服務從當晚 11時開始,第一節為90分鐘,其後立即追加一節75分鐘。高爾共支付540美元(約1.7萬元台幣),另加給兩成小費。俄勒岡州檢方也證實,確實有女子報案稱遭高爾「不當肢體接觸」,但她後來不願接受警方訪談,也不願提告

Jerry Brown Throws Down: Organic Cigarettes Might Not Be a Healthy Choice for You

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Our California Attorney General Jerry Brown can’t abide you smokers out there thinkingorganic” cigarettes from American Spirit are better for you than other cigarettes. So he just cut a deal with the Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company affacting how these ciggies will get marketed in California. Deets below.

Anyway, an appealing package, IMO:

The deets:

Brown Secures Agreement with American Spirit Cigarettes Maker over Misleading Marketing of Organic Tobacco Products

Los Angeles-Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that his office has secured an agreement with Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, Inc., the manufacturer of American Spirit tobacco products, that requires the company to clearly disclose that its organic tobacco is “no safer or healthier” than other tobacco products.

Attorneys general from 32 other states and the District of Columbia signed onto today’s agreement.

Stamping an organic label on tobacco products is ultimately a distinction without a difference-organic or not, cigarettes are bad for your health,” Brown said. “Today’s settlement with Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company ensures that all future advertisements make it clear that organic tobacco is no safer or healthier.”

Jerry Brown, automático para la gente:

Your Baldessari of the Day, #3: Stonehenge (With Two Persons)

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

The Baldessari exhibit at the Legion of Honor museum continues on through November 8th, 2009. It’s called ”John Baldessari: A Print Retrospective from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation.”

Here’s Stonehenge (With Two Persons), times six:

Stonehenge (With Two Persons) Orange is an example of Baldessari’s technique of obscuring portions of photographic images with brightly colored dots. The use of singular, saturated color and their placement speak to Baldessari’s wit and ability to simultaneously mimic and criticize artistic practice.”

O.K. then.

This concludes Your Baldessari of the Day.
