Nice description of life in the real San Francisco
My San Francisco is not the one I hear about in the press these days - the one of cars sporting pink mustaches and upscale farmers markets.

Impressive. Other people are working on the food recognition angle as well. At $1500 advance, or $3000 shipping it's obvious an earlier adopter tech collector kind of thing. Will go over well with the Tesla-driving crowd.
A San Francisco startup has created June, an "intelligent" oven that is able to automatically recognize the food you put in.

The city's first lesbian bar, it featured pianist Gladys Bentley, a large African American woman in white tails and top hat. The law was overturned by the California Supreme Court, but the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and San Francisco police retaliated by harassing gay bars until Black Cat closed in 1963. Old Crow: 962 Market St. Opened in 1935, it was the last of the old gay bars, including the College Inn and Pirate's Den, on the...

The thing that floors me about it is the utter lack of awareness of people who would say such things for a newspaper article. I mean, we know they THINK them....
After years of devastating drought, ultra-wealthy Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., faces water rationing, but residents feel aggrieved. If you can pay the price for more water, they argue, you should get it.

Rich people are generally assholes who think they are better than others simply because they can buy things.

But not dangerous, so there are suspicions that it might be an illegal immigrant rather than a native.
A previously undiscovered species of tarantula has been found in northern Australia. But don't worry, this one's soft and cuddly.

Phooey.
The USA beat Australia 3-1 to win its Women's World Cup opener. Here's what we learned heading into a June 12 showdown with Sweden.

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).
