Wow, Rachel Campos, Puck’s Friend from MTV’s “Real World San Francisco” Kick’s Off Scott Walker’s Presidential Campaign

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

I’ll tell you, back in the day I didn’t have the cable TV. So my bud would tape MTV’s Real World San Francisco and then people would come over to watch it on VHS cassette on the “big screen” TV, a 27″ Sony Trinitron.

I’ll tell you, RWSF was a BFD back in ’94. It was the talk of the town. These people were all over the place. (Poor MTV – they were shocked at how hard it was to get area bar owners and the like to agree to allow entry for taping the show.) Anyway, it looked like this:

So that was then, but this is now. It’s Rachel, all growed up with seven kids? Jeez. And she’s a member of the Congressional Wives Foundation? Wow. So that’s why…

Captureffff

…she was able to introduce Scott Walker at his kickoff. Check it. Via The Gist.

(Oh, I have some notes though. OK Rache, you’re giving us a 12. Why not dial that back to a 4?)

Man that’s sort of painful to listen to. Seems as if she spent less time preparing than delivering.

Is this what cable TV is like?

IDK, I still don’t have the cable…

The Hollywood Set Descends Upon the Western Addition – What It’s Like Filming Alamo Square Atop a Tourist Bus

You think you’re special, Angelenos?

You’re not special.

Anyway, nice headgear, Hollywood.

But remember, minimum wage in these parts is $10.55 an hour. (Sometimes you Hollywood people don’t understand that.)

All right, on with the show:

Someday, I’ll wear noteworthy headgear and ride a tourist bus around town.

Someday.

Know Your UCSF Doctors: Hey Look, It’s Dr. Pam Ling, the Med Student from MTV’s “The Real World San Francisco” in 1994

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

You’re too young to remember the era before the Internet, but back in the day, MTV was all we had.* So it was a BFD when the MTV came to town to stage a reality show back in 1994.

Pamela Ling was one of the characters. She played a medical student, which wasn’t hard, because, you know, she was a med student at the time.

Anyway, she became a doctor at UCSF and that where she labors some 18 years later.

See?

Oh, and there was Puck, who pretended to be a bike messenger.

Man, some real bike messengers didn’t like him. That’s what I recall.

Ah mem’ries…

*Well, not me. Cable’s for suckers, these days and back in the day. I think my friend would videotape this show and then we’d watch it off of the VHS.
