Drinks sure are cheap in other cities

Consider this Facebook update from a friend of mine in another city:

Your missing journal entry from 2007

I hope you finally got to take that road trip.

Kaleidograms!

Our pal Logan just invented something wild:

A kaleidoscope and a postcard fell in love and had beautiful babies that you can buy for $10. Send them to your friends!

Kaleidograms are brand new. They reveal a message in colors or shapes when held up to the light. Slide it between your fingers, and with a satisfying *click*, the message will change before your eyes.

Seven designs to choose from!

I guess we’re just gonna keep having beautiful days forever

Knock on wood.

The bad old days

In the comments section of our post from last week about long-gone Mission rock club 12 Galaxies, reader Skyscraper offers another little remembrance:

I miss that place! I worked there from ’05-the end. We used to play pool and poker til the cleaners showed up and then go to clooney’s.

Oh the bad old days…

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

What is Austin like?

Our pal Corntard overheard one important theory:

Yeah but with Bill Murray, and Aziz.

(Bender’s rules!)

Here’s what to do when the skatepark is closed

We sort of advocated hopping the fence when the park was closed, but that got people all mad. The above seems like a much better idea!

Cyclist’s-point-of-view video of getting doored by a taxi

Whoa, how spooky is this screenshot I just took??

Watch the carnage (and the aftermath) here:

So for goodness’ sake be careful out there. I make a point of never going anywhere near any door.

Perhaps consult this helpful animated GIF from a few years back.

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
