Loko 4 Dat Loko

Gwop Gang of Cleveland rapping about 4Loko obviously. Jane maybe interested in a sponsorship deal if 4loko is kicking dollars around. It's kind of sad that the legacy of St Ides has been reduced to 4loko and Icing, although that strawberry kiwi shit sucked, yeah I rocked it, I was 15 fuck it and it was cheaper than Schlitz.

WE DID IT GUYS!!

One hundred eighty one goddamn dollars!  The Bay Citizen is now fiscally sound thanks to our generous readers and the willingness of Shotwell's to allow us to make a mockery out of the art of pouring beer.  Anyways, some reader at the bar refused to tip because, and I quote, “there is no way that money is actually going to the Bay Citizen.  I know you're just going to pocket it and blow it away.”  HAR HAR HAR GOOD ONE SINBAD.  So, there you have it, check in the mail.  Best of all, I'm pretty sure we can write this money off as a charitable donation, which is awesome because this blog loses so much goddamn money every month I'm sure a charitable donation is going to matter.

Why am I taking photographs and not bartending right now?

Anyways, I'd say the highlight of the night was watching a narc busting prostitutes outside the bar.  I snapped some pics because exposing narcs is one of my pastimes, but the guy seemed relatively nice so you don't get to see his face.  Sorryboutit:

"Bro in hipster staches, skinny jeans, elvis wigs and bee costumes lipsynching to My First Earthquake"

Reader Jamie sends this our way and also notes “Sorry, no bikes.”

NO BIKES.  WTF.

Anyways, it's pretty cool but the end of the video is kind of whack.  Maybe I just didn't get it but I had that feeling in my stomach that I get when I watch someone do something really awkward or embarrassing and I feel awful for them.  Kind of like the feeling you probably get reading this blog.

.gif Continues to be the Hipster File Format of 2010

Alright this shit is so legit I can hardly contain myself.  When Geocities shut down down last year, I thought we put a nail in the animated gif coffin, because, fuck, do we really need a spinning @ telling people to email us? But with local legend Rio Yanez embracing the format (above), with strong backings from Colin Macfadyen (below), it appears the gif is making its urban revival.

I mean, guys, these gifs are so insane it is even breaking the Uptown Almanac ROCK SOLID CODEBASE:

I don't even know what this fucking error message means yo

The most important thing to note about the GIF PARTY breaking out on the internet everywhere is that youtube baiting has moved to gif.  For example, if Perez Hilton tweeted out something like, “If you are easily offended, do NOT click here. Oh, Miley! Warning: truly not for the easily offended!” and linked to this, teenage girls everyone would off themselves with embarrassment.
