Imsoooconfused lost his Amtrak tickets, couldn’t make it home for Thanksgiving, and got into a frightful three-way phone conversation with his maybe-hippie parents. But hopefully this thrilling video reenactment makes it all worth it :(

This short film looks at a day in the life of a dude who does nothing but eat pizza, all day. Dolores Park and our acquaintance Britte Marsh both make key cameos.
Katie ventured inside and found this good stuff.
Ha! Total coincidence: As I’m loading up these pictures, iTunes is on shuffle, and I get “If I Had Words” from the Babe soundtrack! That’ll do, iTunes.
This scene occurred on San Jose somewhere around 30th, at like 2:45pm, Sunday.
What’s the deal? Get it prettier at least.
Legendary Oakland musician Bart Davenport‘s latest album Palaces is really good. This is the video for the first single; it has girls and juggling and xylophone glockenspiel.
The whole rest of the album is great too, but I want to mention two songs in particular. “Freeway Flowers” is a love song from the point of view of a Bay Area resident lost in Los Angeles. It begins, “Don’t know the 10 from the 110…” Been there! The next one is one called “Yerba Buena,” which I think is about being from Oakland and dating someone who lives in the city. Right at the beginning, it mentions the Make-Out Room and 12 Galaxies. Both songs, and all the rest can be sampled (and purchased) here.
