Here’s a 270º panorama I made of the fire truck climbing and dancing crowd.

Quite possibly the greatest incidental license plate ever, spotted in the SOMA on a Saturday night, and hopefully descriptive of exactly what was happening at the moment inside of that particular Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Kinda sounds like the premise of the climax scene (starting at 3:00) of the second-greatest music video ever, the BANNED VERSION of “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, available for your viewing pleasure below:
You remember zines, right? They were the blogs before there were blogs. If Allan was born 10 years earlier, Mission Mission might have been a zine! I think we can all agree that zines are awesome. After all, if I hadn’t been reading Cometbus back in high school, I probably would have chosen Cal Tech over Berkeley, and the world would now be in the grip of the tyrant who managed to abscond the Lambda Laser from my quantum physics lab. So, luckily, you don’t have to worry about that.
Anyway, SF Zinefest is a rad event this weekend in the Hall of Flowers at GG Park where zine authors congregate so anyone can check out all their recent work. In addition to the totally worthwhile experience of checking it out yourself, you can also support the scene by dancing to 90’s music at the Knockout, as DEBASER is hosting a benefit this Saturday night for the SF Zinefest. So although you can get in free before 11pm by simply wearing a flannel, DON’T!!! Wear a hoodie or something instead and help support the Zinefest!

Woah woah woah… having a show on 9/11? Isn’t it too soon? Intergalactic dance band Planet Booty has the answer:
FYI I will continue posting Planet Booty’s shows as long as they keep making these amazing promotional videos.

Laughing Squid posted a delightful video of this cell phone getting down in front of the Mission St. MetroPCS:
He may be puffy, but he’s definitely not lazy. The person inside this inflatable cellphone suit posseses an incredible amount of energy, because he’s been observed dancing vigorously for hours on end in front of a MetroPCS cellphone shop on Mission Street in San Francisco. Work it, dude!
In other news, making an animated gif these days is a fucking pain in the ass.
