Switzerland Fun

May 31, 2010

Whoa! Two San Francisco artists we love love love are included in some kind of exhibition of drawings at some gallery in Zürich!

First there’s Maria Forde, whom you’ll remember from those rad t-shirts she does for Lost Weekend Video.

Then there’s Porous Walker, whom you’ll remember from THE MAVERICKS OF DIARRHEA.

The show is called “Home Party,” and it’s at Barbara Seiler Galerie through July 17. Stop by if you’re in the neighborhood!

People and Their Keys

May 31, 2010

Last week I wrote a mean-spirited post about wearing your keys on the outside of your pants.

The silver lining was that it made local artist Anna recall a book she made a while back. The next day, she posted some scans.

P.S. Anna, you should turn this into a blog. It’ll be huge!

Summer Jamz 2010!

May 31, 2010

Happy Memorial Day, everybody! Now that it’s officially summer, we thought we’d take this opportunity to remind you that the OFFICIAL SUMMER JAMZ OF 2010 are:

Gonna Find Boyfriends Today by Myles Cooper USA (right)


Cover Me In Diamonds by California Sunshine (left)

The former is a straight-up SEXY SUMMER JAM. The latter is more of a come-down song, for the sexy after the barbecue. Both are BONA FIDE HITZZ! Rock them all summer long if u want!!!!

Crispity Clouds of Porkaliciousness

May 31, 2010

On Friday, Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats picked a winner in our pork-related story contest. But here’s the twist: The winner mentioned that she might rather have a limited-edition print than a t-shirt (which was the promised prize), and Ryan obliged! What a guy!

So, here’s the beaut’ of a poster the winner picked. And there’re a couple more too, for sale only in the 4505 Meats Store.

Who Is Gentrifying the Mission?

May 31, 2010

Curbed SF ran a piece on Friday possibly crediting young tech types from Facebook and Google with the gentrification of the Mission, and then an anonymous commenter suggested otherwise:

the vast majority of the folks gentrifying the mission are hipster artist/musician/bartenders who are supported by their baby boomer parents. ever stop by a cafe on valencia around noon? probably not the tech workers hanging out idle in the cafes…

So is it the group up top or the pair below? WHO IS GENTRIFYING THE MISSION?
