Wow. I'm gutted at the thought that Orangs might go extinct in my lifetime, along with both species of Gorilla. You only have to look at this to realize how close they are too us. We would be losing our closest cousins.
<p>Seeing these two babies climb and play together simply warms our hearts! Good luck with the rest of your recovery, little guys!</p>

Mourning the passing of Leonard Nimoy. He was my first idol, the first great hero of my life.  "It is still a beautiful world."   #LLAP

If you haven't seen it already, check out this video from PopSci - it's inspiring. Makes me want to grab some eWaste from the street and head down to Noisebridge.

Good read on issue of online attacks on women.
I recently participated in a Twitter exchange around Ashley Judd's response to the abuse she has been receiving on Twitter. It was one of those Twitter convos that becomes increasingly difficult to...

I'm a huge fan of #BestCoast   - their previous album was awesome, and this first video from their new album has everything good.

All the hoopla around #fiftyshadesofgrey  with Dakota Johnson reminded me of "A Boy and his Dog" with Don Johnson - 'a rather kinky tale of survival' set in the year 2024, 'a future you'll probably live to see'

You know, I don't remember EVER going to the Roxie back in the day.  But... I've done some things that have done violence to my memory, so it's entirely possible.  And it's hard to think of where else we would have seen a midnight show then, other than the UC Theater.

Story
Tagline
There's no kill switch on my sweet, sweet style.
Introduction
An over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, film buff and occasional reviewer, and former private detective. Raised in San Francisco on classic films, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in cafés with a laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

Occasionally, he does Macintosh tech support, editing, and social media consulting to pay for his coffee. 

He would like a job in nonprofit arts administration, or teaching film/critical media literacy.
Bragging rights
I once rode in an elevator with George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. I've flown around the world - both east to west and west to east - and been on six of the seven continents (no prizes for guessing which one I haven't been on yet).
