Flying Boat Over San Francisco Bay

Picture of the Day: The Boeing 314 Flying Boat – Nicholas Jackson – Technology – The Atlantic. Beautiful picture and plane. The SF-Oakland Bay Bridge is obvious, with Yerba Buena/Treasure Island right below. But is that red tower on the north shore to the left the start of the building of the Golden Gate bridge,… Continue reading Flying Boat Over San Francisco Bay

EFF to San Francisco Entertainment Commission: Don’t Turn SF into a Police State | Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation joined civil liberties and privacy groups in criticizing a proposal from the San Francisco Entertainment Commission that would require all venues with an occupancy of over 100 people to record the faces of all patrons and employees and scan their ID’s for storage in a database which they must hand over… Continue reading EFF to San Francisco Entertainment Commission: Don’t Turn SF into a Police State | Electronic Frontier Foundation

A Hair Cut Is A Hair Enhanced

When I was growing up, I would get my hair cut at Tony’s Italian Barber in Bedford. There was a big Italian community in the town, due to the brickworks I think.

Stars – The Independent – June 20 2010

Cassie took me to see Montreal-based popular beat combo Stars at The Independent last night. She knows the band well, having known singer Amy Millan for a long time, and seeing them in London and LA.

I could tell she was annoyed because she would be reading in bed next to me, then suddenly exclaim something rude, drop… Continue reading You Are A Tourist, I Am A Traveller

Wonderfully Mellow: WonderCon 2010

I seem to be following these things around. When I lived in San Diego, I was able to go to ComicCon twice, and now in San Francisco we have WonderCon, run by the same people, but a bit smaller and mellower, as it turns out. Of course, my buddy Brian, being a makeup artist and… Continue reading Wonderfully Mellow: WonderCon 2010

I Thought I Was The Bally Table King

Cassie’s company had a team get-together at the Pacific Pinball Museum at Lucky JuJu in Alameda, and I was able to go along a bit later, after all the speeches, eat some pizza, drink a beer, and play some pinball. After leaving work I walked to the aptly-named Ferry Building, which is a 15-minute walk.… Continue reading I Thought I Was The Bally Table King
