Mass Critical

"bikes not bombs" was the mantra as critical mass, san francisco's monthly bicycle romp through downtown, took on added meaning this go 'round as war protesters came out in force to express their sentiments

blur

anti-war slogans were a plenty . . .

burn

as were reporters . . .

interview

peace seekers . . .

peace

and a few who were vocally pro-troops . . .

USA

warm weather and a super energetic crowd made the ride itself a blast . . .

caught this shot of city hall on the way home from the festivities . . .

Michael Moore Eats Quiche

this buffoon is a marked man . . .

Donkey

check out his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards:

    On behalf of our producers Kathleen Glynn and Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like to thank the Academy for this.

    I have invited my fellow documentary nominees on the stage with us, and we would like to they're here in solidarity with me because we like nonfiction.

    We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times.

    We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president.

    We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons.

    Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush.

    Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you.

    And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up.

    Thank you very much.

outright blasphemy!

regardless of what one thinks about the war in Iraq, there is no questioning the value of duct tape.

for the record: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FICTITIOUS ABOUT DUCT TAPE

off with his head!

Saint Patrick in the House

We must not believe the many, who say that only free people ought to be educated, but we should rather believe the philosophers who say that only the educated are free.

Anger Management Begets Dysfunctional Encounter

the local san francisco news has recently contained attention-grabbing gems that read more like bestselling novels than real-life occurences.

from the cop brawl (fajita-gate) to the modesto woman's disappearance, the local section has been way more interesting than the sports of late.

anyway, an article i caught the other day takes the cake. two gents in the east bay who met during an anger management class decided to do some construction work together at the one guy's house. apparently, they got into a fight while doing the work and all hell broke loose leading to a knife battle, a slayed barnyard animal, and a vandalized vehicle.

here is the intro paragraph to the story:

    Two Fremont men who met at an anger-management class got into a brawl while working on a home-improvement project together, leaving a dead chicken and a trashed van in their path, police said Tuesday.

here is a link to the full story.

absolutely ridiculous!

Babe Magnet

as well as the bunnies . . .

Swill-Billy

City with a View: Twin Peaks Sunset

without question, the hills of san francisco make for some killer views from various points throughout the city.

as a hack photographer, i've been doing what i can to capture some of these buena vistas.

these shots were taken from the twin peaks lookout around the middle of february this year.

this first one is off the backside of twin peaks looking out over the pacific ocean.

Pacific

this second one is facing the city and the bay bridge with downtown set off by the setting sun.

San Fran

worth the price of admission, i'd say . . .
