Via the Prelinger Archives: “San Francisco: Story of a City (1963)” – A Nice 22-Minute Video from a Half-Century Ago

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

From Paul Hoefler Productions, it’s ”San Francisco: Story of a City (1963)

Prolly could have addressed the wobbly projection issue with a simple one-click fix, but this is a great video.

OMG, See 1970′s SF on YouTube for Free Courtesy of “The Streets Of San Francisco Full Episodes”

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Somebody‘s posting complete episodes of The Streets of San Francisco 1970′s buddy-cop TVdrama on YouTube?!

Check it: 

86 complete shows have been posted so far.

Here’s a sample of the first four, 75% of which revolve around the deaths of “girls” in their 20′s. To wit:

“girl found dead in the water”

 ”would-be Jack the Ripper stalks the city, slashing prostitutes to death”

 ”feels responsible for the death of a female hitchhike”

Meh.

(Mmmm, is it possible that posting these eps could stimulate DVD sales? IDK.)

Be my guest if you have the time to watch any of them. I’m sure there are old scenes of the Bay Area I’d like to see, but somebody will need to go through and pick out the good parts and string them together afore I’ll watch any part of any TSOSF rerun, sorry.

“Many actors guest-starred on the show; some were relatively unknown at the time and became successful stars in their own feature films or television series. Guest stars included: Pernell RobertsEdmond O’BrienRicky NelsonRon GlassSusan DeyMarion RossVan WilliamsPaula KellyDon JohnsonTom Selleck,Leslie NielsenJames WoodsNick NolteArnold SchwarzeneggerMartin SheenDabney ColemanDavid WayneVera MilesBrenda VaccaroDesi Arnaz, Jr.,Tony YoungCal BelliniMarshall ColtPat ConwayPatty DukeDenver PyleRichard EganRichard EasthamRodolfo Hoyos, Jr.Don KeeferWright KingFlip MarkNora MarloweJohn RitterRobert WagnerWayne MaunderDick Van PattenMark HamillStefanie PowersTom BosleyLarry HagmanTim O’ConnorBill BixbyJohn DavidsonEve McVeaghNorman FellAnthony GearyCharles AidmanBeverly WashburnMichael ConstantineLen BirmanPaul Michael Glaser,David SoulLuther AdlerLaurie Heineman, and Meredith Baxter, among many others. Even Michael Douglas’s own mother, Diana Douglas, guest-starred in a season two episode, “Chapel of the Damned”. Character actor Robert F. Simon appeared eight times as Captain Rudy Olsen. Gary Vinson appeared toward the end of his career.”

SF’s Next Viral Video: “Alex Honnold’s Urban Ascents” – Dude Freeclimbs Palace of Fine Arts and 720 California

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Oh my!

What’s this, we’re selling insurance here – “Stride Health?” OK fine.

What’s this, the Palace of Fine Arts is “solid?” No, it’s not, it’s crumbly, or at least part of it is.* Just ask RPD Chief Phil Ginsburg.

And, circling back, did anybody ask RPD Chief Phil Ginsburg persimmon** to climb*** our Palace? Like did Stride Health get everything signed off on this one, is what I’m asking…

*Oh, perhaps not, perhaps it’s been all fixed up

**Mmmm… persimmon

***That’s a serious question – I don’t know the answer.

Donald Trump Really Really Wants You to See His New (Actually It’s Quite Old) Boeing 757 – Funny Video

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Well, somebody’s got to work for Donald Trump, I s’pose. Here’s lovely Amanda Miller showing off Donald Trump’s latest wing bling.

For some reason, this not-so-fresh video clip shows up on YouTube when searching for the term San Francisco  - I don’t know why.

Anywho, for DJT to call this nearly quarter century old ride “quiet” is a laugh riot. Yes Donald, it’s quiet compared with your former half-century-plus-old Boeing 727, but that’s about the best thing you can say about the matter.

Trumpy didn’t think his old airplane was heavy enough, so he had plenty of gold added inside. Is that a good thing?

And why such a small “home theatre” screen?

And Amanda, how much extra do you get paid over what you’d get working for an actual human being? Something to think about.

And Donald, what about Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico?

The peanut gallery:

what song is that?

That chick looks so stiff and uncomfortable…. Fail

OMG I want to bang that girl so bad it hurts!!!! owie!!!

mafia guy airplane

dang i hate gold but I REALLY wanna go on there if i wanna go to England!
