Shortly after MAPP wrapped up around midnight, Mission Loc@l spotted art of a different kind. Two women were seen putting a sign on the wall of John O’Connell High School at the corner of 20th and Harrison streets. They said San Francisco is the third city — after Los Angeles and New York — to get this “non-permanent” art and handed me a sticker that said wallsonwords.com. The site describes wallsONwords as “a guerrilla art movement, the mission of which is to celebrate the paradox, beauty and truth of a city through renegade street art.”
She’s got some in-your-face photos of the burritos and cafeteria-like scenes….her conclusion…not life changing but definitely worth a try.
Earlier Today from Armand
If it wasn’t for the iPad, I wouldn’t have anything to write about today. But, yesterday was the big day. The day to “get your hands on the future,” as they say, and get your hands on an iPad.
From the SF Gate article:
“In five years, the mouse will be a thing of the past. I already spend most of my time on my iPhone, so this is the next logical step.”
Yes, until the touchpad breaks. HAVE YOU MET MY COMPUTER?
Meanwhile, on Mission Mission, at least one man has already seen the future, a whole lot of it. So much, in fact, that it knocked him out on the front steps of the Armory building. I really would like to know the story behind this.
And in the Hipster Watch section of SF Weekly’s All Shook Down, Ian S. Port stands up for his hipster rights, standing up to hipsters hating on other hipsters. Stop the intra-hipster violence, I say! Can’t we all just get along and pop open a couple of tall boys of Tecate in Dolores Park, like we used to? Oh, right. The weather.
But I digress:
Hipsters are all kinds of people, from the brilliant, employed, and broke to the drugged-out, lazy, and rich. I have hipster friends who are studying for Ph.Ds in sciences I’m barely aware of, and I have hipster friends who, um, work at Urban Outfitters. I have hipster friends who lead nonprofits. I do not have any hipster friends with trust funds.
There is some good stuff in there, so I suggest you quit your nihilist ways and read for yourself.
