UC Berkeley Engineering Grad Comes to Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco, Encounters Ceaseless Petty Crime, Oh Well

Monday, November 19th, 2012

1. Silently break passenger window of an upscale Honda (with a piece of high-temperature ceramic from a spark plug tied to a piece string) on the mean streets of ineffectual Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco.

2. Take all folding money you can grab (but leave the coins – too heavy.)

3. Get arrested, very occasionally.

4. Get sprung.

5. Repeat.

Thusly:

And do you know what the SFPD will say? They’ll say, “You parked your car in that area? You shouldn’t park there!”

Just like they say, “You were actually using your iPhone while waiting for MUNI. Oh no, you should hide it whenever you’re not at home.”

Srsly.

Uh Oh, Bad News for “Peak Oil” Fans – American Production of Crude Oil has been Going Up Lately

Friday, April 27th, 2012

I don’t know, if I were all set on the idea that American oil production peaked in 1970, I’d be getting a little worried about now.

See?

Who knows what the future will bring?

 

Crazy Rob Anderson vs. the Single Bullet Theory, Chapter # ??? – 48 Years of Conspiracy Theories

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

I don’t know where people get the idea that we’re entitled to a perfect F.B.I., but some seem to have that notion.

So, because the F.B.I. didn’t do everything perfectly in the investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, then that means there had to be a massive conspiracy?

Does that make sense?

Oh look, Wikipedia, for one, got it right:

“Location: Dallas, Texas
Date: November 22, 1963
Time: 12:30 p.m. (Central Time)
Target: John F. Kennedy
Attack type: Sniper rifle
Death(s): 1 killed (President Kennedy)
Injured: 2 wounded (Governor Connally and James Tague)
Perpetrator(s): Lee Harvey Oswald”

Oswald, the former Marine Corps marksman, was a gun nut who liked shooting military and paramilitary authority figures – it was his thing. For example, before he shot and killed Commander-in-Chief JFK, he shot retired U.S. Army General Edwin Walker (with the rifle Oswald bought mail-order, the very same one he used to kill JFK). And then, after he shot and killed JFK, he shot and killed Dallas Police Department Officer J.D. Tippet and then he attempted to shoot Dallas Police Department Officer N.M. McDonald.

He was a shooty person back in ’63 – what can you do?

Is it so impossible to believe that there are random assassins out there, people who act on their own, people like Sirhan Sirhan and James Earl Ray and Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme and Sara Jane Moore and John Hinckley Jr. and Mark David Chapman and Jared Loughner?

Apparently.

Oh well.

See you next year.

P.S. It was a regular bullet what killed JFK, not a “magic bullet.”

How to Deal With Hollywood Jackholes What STILL Haven’t Paid “Contagion” Film Extras Since February

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Now it was a little funny earlier this year when a high level person at Rich King* Casting started quoting sub-minimum wages for extras in that new Contagion movie starring, I don’t know, everybody, you know, these people right here (and let’s throw in Famous Movie Director Steven Soderbergh too – he’s a luminary as well):

But then somebody, no not somebody from the local Film Commish and not any MSM reporters (who don’t seem to be aware of what the minimum wage is in the place where they live and work), but somebody up here in the 415 got word down to Los Angeles County about The Law ‘n stuff.

So fine, the RKC people changed their minds and decided to pay extras “$80″ for up to eight hours (and then they finally did the math and decided that $79.36 would be the wage, cause, you know, después de todos, dinero es dinero.)

But now word comes that RKC thinks it’s OK to pay people up to six weeks** later?

And the extras still haven’t all been paid?

And RKC is ignoring contact attempts from said extras?

Could all this be true?

Well let’s hear from a Real Life Contagion Extra:

“I got in the film as well, but its now mid April, and I have not seen the payment in the 6 weeks that the casting company stated. Got my work receipt right here – would be nice if someone from this casting agency would follow up with my contact attempts.

“It was still a really cool day either way. I got to see an amazing set up of the set @ Candlestick and didn’t mind standing/sitting around all day. That is what background extras do. All of these girls were being very rude that day saying “when are we going to meet the stars”, and “I can’t believe they are making us stand around”, and “come on! I wan’t to be in the movie already!! Shortly after one of the assistants heard those remarks, our group was dismissed for the afternoon. It is like they never listened to what they told us at the casting meeting at Fort Mason, or the information the casting directors told us over the phone when they offered us the part. I did not get an email confirmation after that day, but a personal phone call.

Would be nice to see my check, but I will give them a bit more time to respond since I bet the other 5,000 are hounding them as well. I mean come on – I am on unemployment – it would be nice to have the $79 bucks right now, but I can wait a bit”

Now, isn’t it ironic, dont’cha think, that a company what has a cavalier attitude about at least one kind of wage and hour rule would drag its feet about making payments? (Well, maybe not, in my experience.)

Anyway, all you non-union extras ought to form a union or something so you can start playing hardball with the Hollywood vanga vanga.

So why don’t you pay all your extras ASAP, Rich King Casting? Like posthaste or something.

Thank you.

Now, speaking of Hollywood, wouldn’t you like to see a list of all the movies that Steven Soderbergh has seen the past twelve months? Sure you would. See it after the jump.

*Forget about Obama’s birth certificate – I want to see the one with “Rich King” printed on it, and oh, Sandy Beach too, I want to see one of those as well – I think Hollywood still has a few guys around with that name.

**I should make a horror film – it’ll be about the horrors of Regular People dealing with Hollywood People. It’ll be called 42 Days Later.

TruthSerumNow.Com: Here’s What the Makers of that Contagion Film Got Wrong About Bloggers and Jude Law’s Character

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

[As best I can figure, the website that Jude Law is promoting on his flyers in Contagion is TruthSerumNow.Com. Someone in LA just registered it just last month, so there you go.]

Now, of course the CDC LIES, of course. But here’s what Hollywood has gotten wrong:

1. First off,  doesn’t this fellow Jude Law appear awfully fit and thin for a blogger? That just doesn’t look right.

2. Now, I’ve notified all 14 of my readers to four or five contagion alerts over the years – thank God each alert has been a false alarm but I’ll tell you from experience that Jude’s contagion suit is ALL WRONG!! You can’t just put a belt around your tummy and then call it a day. In fact, this set up would actually increase the chances of a user contracting any possible contagion, so this is just ridiculous. And also, Hollywood, that see-through helmet rig would condense up in a New York minute when actually used in the field, particularly when you’re running from the SFPD, or more likely, the fake SFPD. (They’re really Feds! All of them! Well, most of them would be, during a real contagion.)

Presenting Ridiculous Actor Jude Law on the Streets of San Francisco. (I’m smelling Oscar!)

Oh, wait a second! Aren’t bloggers the ones who generally debunk conspiracy theories (yes, it’s the Gerald Posner, straight outta UC Hastings Law School) and isn’t Hollywood the one what promotes ridiculous conspiracy theories? OMG, YES! We’re through the looking-glass here, people!

[Man, I got this all wrong at the top. Somebody call Rewrite, I gotta go to work.]

When PG&E Comes to Tear Up Your Street, They Really Tear Up Your Street

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

As here, on Grove betwixt Divisidero and Scott. 

Would you call this block a part of Alamo Square (after all, you can see the wide, wide steps of A.S. right there), or the Western Addition(literally, this block was added as part of the western addtion to San Francisco, which used to have its north-south border on Larkin in the Tenderloin) or the North of Panhandle (NOPA) District (the grass-fed burgers of NOPA restaurant are just a block away!), or something else? No matter.

The point is that this block is right near where conspiracy theorist Crazy Rob Anderson (go ahead, ask him about the truth behind the death of JFK) lives. Check it:

(Man, I’ve seen people freak out over just one truck working a block. Can you imagine how the NIMBYs felt about this disruption to their day?)

I was going to try to get on my HAM radio to see if I could warn Rob about this overt operation, tell him about how undercover agents from the FBI, CIA, NSA, ETC could be laying in their own cables right along with friendly PGE.

But then I thought, well, that’s just what THEY would want me to do, probably triangulate on my broadcast equipment in a New York minute. Then they’d find my chemtrails videos and everything. So, I didn’t do nothing.

But remember, The Truth Is Out There. We’re through the looking glass, people!
