This New Samsung Watch Phone Will Get You MORE TAIL THAN SINATRA, Apparently – Check the 2-Min. VideoMonday, December 23rd, 2013
Two men enter, one man leave just like in Thunderdome.
But I didn’t actually watch the whole thing, so you tell me:
Cheeky Devils! EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND (ETNZ) Allows Omega Watch to Advertise “AMERICA”S CUP? NOT FOR LONG”Friday, August 23rd, 2013
Can you believe this? This new 17-foot-tall ad from New Zealand sponsor Omega at the foot of Sansome Street is all:
“AMERICA”S CUP? NOT FOR LONG”
See? With a certified lead-free forward king post and everything:

So Omega is mocking Americah in Americah?
Well I never.
This is what I could find from the Google, not that you could easily find it, I’m srsly:
“AMERICA’S CUP? NOT FOR LONG. OMEGA proudly supports Emirates Team New Zealand in its campaign to re-claim sailing’s greatest trophy, the America’s Cup…”
I tell you, if my Icebreaker merino wool watch cap hadn’t cost so very very much, I’d burn it!
Here’s What Tonight’s World Series Viewing Party Will Look Like – But No Alcohol in Civic Center – Vote No on Prop BSunday, October 28th, 2012
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:
- Martin Professional LED Screens
- Barco LED Screens
- D3 LED‘s Dynamic Digital Displays
- Daktronics ProStar
- Mitsubishi DiamondVision
- Panasonic AstroVision
- Philips Vidiwall
- Toshiba TechnoRainbow”
OMG, OMG, the Free Olympic Games Viewing Party is Coming August 7th through August 11th in Civic CenterFriday, July 6th, 2012
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…
Check it, our very own Oceanic Society is kicking off annual Farallon Island whale watching season on May 26, 2012.
All the deets:
“WHALE WATCH/NATURE CRUISES TO FARALLON ISLANDS BEGIN MAY 26
San Francisco, California – Oceanic Society’s educational day long boat trips to the Farallon Islands, just 27 miles west of San Francisco, will operate May 26 through November 25, with departures available from San Francisco and Sausalito.
Blue whales (the largest animal to have ever lived on earth), Humpback whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, Harbor porpoises, Risso’s dolphins and Northern right whale dolphins all may be encountered during the whale-watch cruises to the islands and the nearby continental shelf.
An exceptional wilderness area, the Farallon Islands National Wildlife Refuge is the largest seabird rookery in the eastern Pacific south of Alaska – including nesting Tufted puffins, Pigeon guillemots, Rhinoceros auklets, Common murres, Black oystercatchers and cormorants. The Islands are also a breeding haven and home to California sea lions, northern elephant seals, Steller sea lions, Harbor seals and fur seals.
Though only scientists are permitted on the islands, the abundance of wildlife may be closely observed and photographed from aboard the Salty Lady, Oceanic Society’s 56-foot, Coast Guard-certified vessel. The boat holds 48 passengers.
Experienced naturalists lead each excursion to help identify seabirds and locate whales and interpret their behavior. The naturalists also provide informal discussions on marine wildlife and on the history of the islands. Passengers also benefit from the presence of whale researchers from the Cascadia Research Collective, scientists who have studied these whales since the early 1990’s.
Oceanic Society trips to the Farallon Islands depart Saturdays, Sundays and select Fridays from the Marina Green in San Francisco. Trips begin at 8 a.m. and last about eight hours. Passengers also have the option of departing at 7:15 a.m. from the Sausalito Clipper Yacht Harbor. The minimum age is 10, and an adult must accompany children under 15. Participants supply their own food and beverages.
The fee is $125 per person, with special group rates available. The fee includes a copy of “The Farallon Islands: Past, Present, and Future,” a 42-minute DVD produced by the Oceanic Society in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The DVD offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the natural and human history of the Farallon Islands and provides a virtual land tour of the islands. (Additional DVDs cost $15.)
Founded in 1969, the mission of the Oceanic Society is to protect marine wildlife and oceanic biodiversity through an integrated program of scientific research and environmental education. An official partner of the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge, Oceanic Society has offered educational whale-watch cruises since 1984 and is the only nonprofit organization that offers whale-watch trips year round in the Bay Area.
Reservations for the Farallon Islands whale-watch trips are advised. Please call 415- 256-9941 or 800-326-7491 or register atwww.oceanicsociety.org. For recorded information on current wildlife sightings, call 415-258-8220.
Sea you there!
Nevius Watch: An Obvious Clue that London Breed Will Replace Ross Mirkarimi as Supervisor of District FiveTuesday, December 20th, 2011
Uh, why would the masters of CW Nevius have him write what he wrote today?
I’d say it has something to do with the search for the replacement of Ross Mirkarimi as District Five Supervisor.
Seemingly, Nevius doesn’t just want to come out and say it.
But he wants to say something about London Breed.
So, out of nowhere, we get a few lines on the topic from The Neve.
But he left out a little bit of the story:
“In August 2002, former San Francisco Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr., appointed London Breed, as the Executive Director of the African American Art & Culture Complex (AAACC).”
Did you know about that, Nevius? Honestly, I can’t tell.
London Breed, Executive Director of the African American Art and Culture Complex, at the de Young Museum:
Anyway, when you see the headline “African American Art & Culture Complex thriving,” the way you should read that is “London Breed to be appointed District Five Supervisor by Mayor Ed Lee.” Or at the very least, “Willie Brown cashes in, appoints London Breed as Supervisor.”
Thanks for the 411, Neve!
But it’s too bad you can’t come out and say what you mean…
