Homemade Star Wars Action Figures, A Million Times Better Than Store Bought

Jonah from The Ladder Herald just put together a set of action figures a million times better than anything Lucasfilm has ever produced. Let’s hope they don’t sue him.

Proud mum Elizabeth says, “I thought you should see this, Internet.” Link.

Thank you both. (More closeups, please!)


Star Wars Droids as Mission Street Art, 1977

Cookie Shop Coming Soon


Last night I stopped in at Receiver Gallery for a sneak peek at their upcoming Porous Walker show (more on that later), but I also got a sneak peek at (and taste of) the cookies from Anthony’s Cookies, our soon-to-open new neighborhood cookie shop.

The Cookies and Cream Cookie, seen here in the foreground, was, as gallery runner Steven noted, “very meta.”

Complete cookie menu here. I can’t wait for this place to open.

Valencia Street Park

I hate to jump on Burrito Justice a third time today, but they just keep churning out such solid content. This time, it’s a proposal worthy of an emergency Planning Commission hearing at the very least.

As you can see in the above diagram, the plan is to facilitate a smarter St. Luke’s expansion by closing Valencia to auto traffic (between Chavez and Mission) and turning it into a park — Valencia Street Park — thereby creating an inviting plaza for hospital employees, neighborhood folk and everyone else to congregate.

See the whole meticulously outlined plan, as well as the other (boring) plans currently under consideration, right here.

Oh also, this might make for good reason to finally discontinue the 26-Valencia.
