New Art Goes Up on Orange Alley

May 4, 2009

Artist Seth showed up, wooden panels in tow, and started bolting them onto a wall. Though it’s unclear whether the piece is finished or not, what’s up is fabulous.

Receiver Design shows us the whole process (and a bunch of other Orange Alley art) in the following photo set:

Boot ‘n’ Rally on Capp

Kevin Montgomery, my favorite Mission District news source:

I just watched someone pull a boot n’ rally on Capp. Typical for a weekend night, atypical for a Monday lunch.

Sam Rockwell Shines in ‘Moon’

May 4, 2009

Last night I went to the SFIFF premiere of Duncan Jones’ Moon starring Sam Rockwell. I went in pretty cold, not knowing anything other than it’s in space Sam Rockwell is in it. It’s good that way, so I won’t say much more, and I’ll say watch the above trailer only if you really like watching trailers.

Really, all I’ll add is that Sam Rockwell gives a MONSTER performance.

Also, new candidate for best ping pong scene in all of cinema.

It’s hard to be more twee than a boutique on Valencia Street.
