NetFlix is Evil: Film Yard Video is Shutting Down After 14 Years of Business in the NoPA Part of the Western Addition

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Or, maybe NetFlix isn’t evil.

No matter, highly-rated Film Yard Video will be gone by the end of the Summer of 2011 – the Tenderloin Geographic Society has the deets.

Uh, $9 for a DVD? Isn’t that a lot?

On It Goes…

The Late-Night Chess Players of Divisadero Street

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

[UPDATE: The Tenderloin Geographic Society takes note - dude's still at it...]

This guy sets his table up out there some knights. Not sure if he’s doing street chess the likes of which you’ll learn about in this bit from Chris Roberts.

You ought to head over to Garden Alley (the driver’s friend, seriously) some evening and see if he’s up for a match.

Never seen him actually playing anyone else tho….

Reminds me of Omega Man, playing chess and looking out for the zombies

[UPDATE: I can now say that I've seen somebody playing with him, once anyway.]
