Our Sunset District, on a Dreaded Sunny Day – The Specialness of Sunset Specials

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

On a Clear Day/ You Can See 39th Avenue:


Now, let’s use the pejorative phrase Sunset Special in a sentence:

As people start families priorities change. Being close to the densest urban parts of SF starts to fade as a priority. Schools, safe streets, backyards with enough room for kids to play and homes larger than the typical Sunset special become higher priorities.


Golden Gate Park Panhandle is the Equal of Dolores Park, If Only for Today

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

Balmy weather brought out hundreds of sun worshippers to the Golden Gate Park Panhandle today. Perhaps people are tiring of the crowds at hilly Dolores Park in the Mission Mission District, and opting instead for the West Si-iiide? We Can Only Hope. 

All Missionites are welcome (assuming you can tolerate a few chain stores like the Ben & Jerry and the American Apparel). Go West. (And yes, we have Hooverball. Bonus.)

Come with me
Into the trees
Well lay on the grass of the Panhandle
And let the hours pass

Take my hand
Come back to the land
Lets get away from D.P.
Just for one day

Take my hand
Come back to the land
Where everythings ours (FTW)
For a few hours (until the fog rolls back in)


“Stripped” is well known for its innovative use of sampling. The underlying beat is a distorted and slowed-down sound of a motorcycle engine running, while the main melody begins with a car’s ignition starting, and the end uses sounds of fireworks.
