What the Hell is this, a commercial for the America’s Cup?
Why not instead, hire this guy, Stu Woo of the Wall Street Journal?
He’s running circles around you.
42 inches and 1080i? Was that a good combo back in 2007?
I think not.
My 2011-era 70-incher* from Costco cost less and is much better, obvs. (It will go the distance, it will last for decades, IMO)

Of course, things such as TVs always get better, but this extremely heavy, extremely thick plasma model for almost $3000 was simply too much, too soon. And now it’s busted but it became obsolete before then.
*Never hooked up to cable. Cable is for suckers. Oh, you have cable? You’re a sucker, sorry, tough love.
I don’t know, You Make The Call on how wrong this Cadillac commercial is:
Apparently, San Francisco and Los Angeles are the same place.
Apparently, Brad Pitt just looooooves grandpa cars.
Apparently, Brad Pitt is a whore and his price is $3,000,000.
You’re invited to come to Civic Center tonight to see Game Four of the World Series on a makeshift “Jumbotron.”
See you at 5:07 PM (or earlier, to get a good spot if you want to be able to actually see the action unobstructed.)
It’ll look like this, but probably with more Matt Cain than Timothy Leroy Lincecum on the screen:

The SFPD requests (more or less) that you transfer your alcohol to unmarked containers, thusly:
And, oh yes, speaking of the Rec and Park, Remember to Vote No on Proposition B (November 2012), the so-called “Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond”
Well, because Prop. B is too costly for San Francisco
And also because Reform is Needed at San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department.
Also because area lawyer Philip Alan Ginsburg would consider passage of Prop B (November 2012) an endorsement of how he’s running the RPD.
Now, let’s hear from San Francisco Mayor Ron Conway,* after the jump. (Spoiler: He wants you to go to Chipotle’s and spend your money before you blow town.)
PS: The after party will be in the Mission District – spread the word, bring fireworks.
*Poor Sony. It appears that any television-like contraption bigger than 100 inches now gets the generic term “jumbotron.”
“Displays similar to the Jumbotron include:
As promised, here’s Katie Couric’s postcard to the 415, recorded inside a minivan as she was heading down to SFO a few days back:
I’ll tell you, I haven’t seen anything from the NBC in years and the games of the 2012 Olympiad aren’t going to change anything.
But you, you love the Olympics, so get on out to Civic Center Plaza to watch them on a gigantic screen for free from August 7th through August 11th, why not?

Let’s hope that area politicians won’t show up at this one to speechify…
So Prop 29 is about a $1-per-pack tax on cigarettes that we can vote on in a month? Well that’s news to me.
But look who’s against Prop 29 – it’s that famous convenience store what’s on Fulton and Masonic what can’t sell lottery tickets no mo owing to what some people, mind you, just some people, might possibly be tempted to label LOTTERY FRAUD.

Now here’s your Convenience Store Triad:
1. Alcohol sales to underage students from neighboring high schools and the University of San Francisco.
2. Cigarette sales.
3. Lottery ticket sales.
So, if you lose one leg of your triad, you’ve got to make sure not to lose the other two, that’s one conclusion you might draw…
Here’s what you do, you imagine this old guy on the left taking a picture of himself naked holding his wiener and then sexting it to you. Can you imagine?

I guess that’s what MSM-guy Chris Hansen dude recently did to some younger woman.* (That must have come as a surprise to Chris Hansen dude’s wife. Or not.)
Anyway, as you can see, Chris Hansen the sexting perv came to San Francisco recently.
Why? He came to punk unsuspecting store clerks who foolishly told their fake customers that their faked lottery tickets were losers only to try to cash the fake winning tickets in for themselves.
Check it, cold busted:
(And oh, I see, you give the $10,000 winning ticket to your gf for her to cash it in, you know, cause it might look a little auspicious if you, the Kwik-E-Mart owner/clerk, yourself did it? Wow, that’s using your noodle. Or not.)
(This is the kind of thing that belongs on SFist.com, but I don’t think it’s been there.)
I’m sorry, why do we even have a lottery in California? Seems like a magnet for fraud and other unhealthy activities, just saying.
And like your lottery ticket money goes to pay the State of California to go around and bust store clerks? Seems kind of pointless to me.
All right, signing off from the stoop of the Fulton Food Shop, kitty corner from Chris Hansen’s stand-up in front of the Fulton Street Lucky a few weeks back.
I didn’t see him touch his wiener or nothing…
**Sorry, you can’t buy lotto tickets at these stores anymore as the State of CA no longer deals with them.
I think that’s Vicki Liviakis* doing a stand-up** in front of the VIP line last night at the Grand Opening of our brand-new San Francisco PENTHOUSE CLUB & Steakhouse.
Looked like kind of a sausage-fest, actually:

But, oh, the reviews are in, already. Let’s hear from from the “Yelp Elite” cognoscente:
“My boyfriend got the 28-day dry aged bone-in ribeye with chimichurri sauce and I got the grass fed filet mignon with shallot confit and sauce Diane. We were both getting full at this point, but not full enough to not devour both of these beef dishes. The chimichurri sauce was the best we have ever had and really enhanced the juicy ribeye. My filet mignon was tasty and rich and the shallot confit added a nice sweet touch to the dish. We had the Jordan Cab with the meat dishes.
“This was one of the best food experiences I have had in a long time! Every single dish was eaten in its entirety and the bits were scraped off the plate with our forks. I would have licked the plate had I been at home. Executive Chef Mike Ellis has created an amazing and versatile menu that is guaranteed to please anyone’s palate.”
Bon Courage, San Francisco PENTHOUSE CLUB & Steakhouse!
*At first, I thought she might have been the talent, you know, coming out of the limo. (That’s a compliment, I suppose…)
**I can’t recall ever seeing a real live person holding a KRON 4*** video camera, cause, you know, usually a tripod does the job. That’s the “VJ” concept.
***If I were in charge of KRON, I’d apply to the FCC to change the name to KORN**** and then I’d beg NBC for an affiliate contract, you know, so it’d be like the old days. That would improve ratings 150% overnight, I’d wager.
****And actually, it would have a Cyrillic R, you know, like this: KoЯn-TV
