I don't remember where I saw this first (sorryboutit, 'internet journalism'), but when I heard they were talking about "The Mission" on The View, I was kind of excited. Then I realized they were talking about La Mission. Zzzzz. But still, the beginning of the interview Whoopi makes the claim that "people don't know about the Mission." Really? I mean, I suppose that is true on some levels. When it comes to Latino culture, then definitely. But what about the art/fixie/fashion/'weird ice cream flavors'/"I heard about My First Earthquake before you did"/alcoholism? A lot of that "San Francisco brand-awareness" is coming right from the Mission. True, most people can't point to it on a map but that's what google search is for.
BTdubs Whoopi, loved you in Sister Act. Outter Mission/Noe Valley love!
Mission and Highland reports:
Someone knocked over the trash can last night. Then, someone was nice enough to put some orange cones around it. Let's see how many days it stays like this. (link)
"But Kevin, someone recognized a dangerous situation and put out cones, alerting on-coming traffic to the trashcan's presence. That's not apathy, someone did something about it."
No, they didn't.
Artist and rapper Z-Man teamed up with Bicasso for a show that opened last night at Lower Haters called, um, "N*gga Sh*t!" The art did not mess around, taking aim at racial stereotypes Petey Greene-style. Fried chicken and watermelon were served. Guess San Francisco isn't complete politically correct Burner/hippie shit after all. My favorite part of last night was going up to other white people and asking them what the name of the show was. No one would answer me. Not sure when these works come down, but you should definitely get in there before they do.

Apparently the doucheoisie over at Hipster Puppies got a book deal. Our newest hater/Uptown Almanazzi Zach smelled money and created BRO CATS. We at Uptown Almanac are committed to landing BRO CATS on the New York Times Bestsellers list (and every Marina coffee table) before Hipster Puppies can sue our asses off.
“O hai bro, wanna go halfsies on a bag of cat-nip?” ~Bro Cat
1.) Bro Cat likes to tell all the girls that he surfs, but is really too scared to go in the water.
2.) Bro Cat got so wasted last night that he was coughing up hair balls all morning.
3.) Bro Cat gets hella pussies.
