Forget About “Car Share” – What You Need to Do is Rent a Ferrari from Club Sportiva – An “Experience Beyond Ownership”Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014
An “experience beyond ownership,” whatever that meant.
Now here’s another on 19th Avenue, just recently:
So what, your wife spends $1000-something bucks to have two bros deliver a Lambo to your office on a Friday afternoon and then you’ll be a big macher for the weekend?
I’ll tell you, this business makes no sense in Frisco.

James Franco, the young San Francisco lawyer (apparently employed, this is Hollywood after all) takes Cherry to the roof of Medjul:
Hey, it’s Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire
Whose streets? Our streets! You can’t fake this kind of verite in a Hollywood back lot:
Oh, Cherry crashes her Audi at some point. An official SFPD Harley is in that scene.
And here’s Mel’s Drive In in the background:
And here’s the trailer:

Mr. Gary Oldman Graces San Francisco for “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” – British Consulate’s Sneak Peek – “Cool Britannia”Thursday, November 17th, 2011
Well here it is:
“The British Consul General, Ms Priya Guha, requests the pleasure of your company at a reception prior to a screening of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” November 16, 6:00-7:15pm”
O.K. then. And that’s not at all a typical kind of thing for San Francisco’s consular community, really, but our British Consulate-General is out there in the Bay Area promoting the heck out of Britain. (Cool Britannia they used to call it.) And actually that’s not a hard job when you have Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding this year (and her recent California visit, dropping by just to say “hi”) and the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics and whathaveyou.
Add to that list the start of a movie series that could rival James Bond and Harry Potter, who knows. It’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (that’s a nice trailer, huh?) featuring Mr. Gary Oldman (H.P.’s godfather!) and, already, it has an obscenely-high 97% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Check it:
“Based on the classic novel of the same name, the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the mid-20th Century. George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a disgraced British spy, is rehired in secret by his government – which fears that the British Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a. MI-6, has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.”
So last night, San Francisco’s first female British Consul General, Ms. Priya Guha, introduced this film at the Century 9 in Westfield’s San Francisco Centre. She pointed out that Britain is quite big in the movie biz, having over 100 film studios and 2500 post-production companies.
And then it was on with the show.
And then, who popped up as the curtain dropped but Gary Oldman and Director Tomas Alfredson. (Or so I’m told.) This very same crew was up in San Rafael two days ago and who knows where they’ll be tonight:
Anway, I don’t have a shot for you, so:
INSERT PHOTO OF MSSRS. OLDMAN AND ALFREDSON WITH CONSUL GENERAL HERE
But I do have shots from last night of people who may or may not have wanted their photos taken, so I’ll leave them caption-free. (I’ll note that CBS Channel 5 was def. in the house with famous Liam Mayclem and Beth Spotswood (she’s earned a page on Wiki now? Wow) on hand.)
