Shaky Town

I was in San Francisco last weekend for work. I had a good time. Here are some of the things I did:


pup_ajax loves the jellies, too. I saw them at the Aquarium of the Bay on Pier 39.


The Stanford Marching Band was playing on Fisherman's Wharf. I also got to go to the Musee Mecanique, which I love.


I went to wrestling practice with the Golden Gate Wrestlers. They are all excited about the 2010 Gay Games to be held next year on July 31 to August 7 in Cologne, Germany.


After the practice, I rewarded myself with a rainbow-colored cookie from Hot Cookie, and cute bear chatted me up at Starbears. I lived in the bay area for an entire year, and never had a guy come up to me before. I think the magic words to pick up men in San Francisco are, "Hi, I'm from out of town, and my plane leaves tomorrow".


I got my hair cut at Joe's Barbershop on Market. I also got to go to Medium Rare records, and Amoeba in the Haight, where I bought a Criterion Blu-ray version of "The Wages Of Fear", just because I love the oil-soaked ending of the movie.



I also got to walk around the Palace of Fine Arts, thought I skipped the Exploratorium.



I also walked around the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. I wanted to see the DeYoung and the California Academy of Sciences, but saved that for another time.


I went to Berkeley to check out the 14 Karats jewelry store, as well as the 'zine exhibit at the Berkley Art Museum. Unfortunately, there was a football game against Arizona that day, so parking was difficult.

I did other things: bars, restaurants, movies, sex. But I love to play tourist, and I am looking forward to coming back to San Francisco in two weeks for Thanksgiving.

    How can a designer put this out? I realize CDs don't have the real estate of an LP anymore... but these examples are just huge wastes of space.…
