Jenna Elfman, America’s Most Famous Haight-Ashbury Hippie, is Looking Good at 40. Plus, Scientologists Everywhere

Monday, December 27th, 2010

Market Street is playing host to the return of Jenna Elfman to San Francisco these days. She starred in Dharma and Greg on the TV back in the 90′s and the oughts, so she’s what people think about when they think of San Francisco and Haight-Ashbury and hippies and whatnot.

And she’s Yet Another Scientologist, did not know that. She’s part of a decades-long attempt to normalize Scientology as Your Next Religion. (This bus shelter ad is as much about that effort as selling Flip cameras, actually.)

You see, that’s how they roll Down Hollywood Way.

So, mommas, don’t let your daughters grow up to be 5’10″ ZZ Top or Depeche Mode video models:

That’s your Lesson Of The Day.

The Steeply Pitched Roofs of these Five San Francisco Houses are Delightful

See?

Perhaps after Trauma gets cancelled by the suits at NBC, Hollywood could come back to town to remake Full House, excepting they could use these residences instead one of the Seven Sisters of Alamo Square.

They could call it Full Houses or something. Then some director dude in a baseball cap could talk about how he considers the houses themselves¬†to be¬†characters¬†(before or after he ID’s hisself as a “story teller” or a “teller of stories”, you know the drill)

Just lovely.

Hulu bonus:

“Does NBC seriously think they can retain viewers after their disgraceful cancellation of numerous shows with loyal fans. These morons should just sell the network to Fox or any other network with some brains. Trauma will be on for 10 episodes then cancelled to make space for the NBC Real World Marathon. Nothing But Clowns network.”
