Knockout: Dance to 90s Music While Some Drunk Chick Takes a Piss in the Men's Room Urinal

I always thought The Knockout was a place where people who still think Nirvana is indie went to score blow.  Turns out people dance there too!  I had been seeing these pictures pop up on flickr a lot and kept thinking “what brand of douchebag goes to a club that, presumably, hires some jackass to take photos of their trashed customers, watermarks/brands/copyrights the photo, and upload them to flickr?”  So I decided to do a little recon/spectating with the ultimate authority of Mission douchebags last night.  Dunno about it.  Felt like a more over-hyped promoted/less fun version of emo night at Pops (which is free and they serve $1 high life).  The whole time I was there nothing really notable or exciting happened.  Some drunk chicks hit the photobooth but the whole thing was mostly shouting at your friends over the DJ.  Rolled out at midnight, went to Farolito, savaged a burrito, and went to bed.

Of course, some of my friends stuck around.  Got this text this morning:

“Forgot to tell you about the girl who was peeing in the urinal as I was puking in the stall.  Told me not to turn around because she was embarrassed.”

Chris, did you get any snaps of that?

Fashion Watch: Bicycle Chains are OUT, Bicycle Belts are IN

Went to Santa Cruz the other day to ride bikes/remember what 70 degree weather is like/make fun of hippies and stumbled across this beast.  Forget about that fixed gear noise, belt drives are the purest form of cycling.  I asked the owner if he liked the bike: “It’s great.  She’s ready to go whenever I want.  Don’t even have to use lube.”  Zing!

In other news, being covered in liquid horse shit is very fashion forward.

Thanks James for actually leaving your house today.

Lost and Found

Seriously, who the fuck brings a live Phish CD to a house party?

I hope that NYE was a omen for 2010, meaning that, unlike last year, I’ll have a solid time without being continuously roadhoused.

Too Far

Sure it’s photoshopped, but it’s still great.

New Vegan Food Truck "Sunny Vibrations" Now at Dolores Park

How many late-’00s Mission District memes can you fit into one subject line?  Apparently not all of them:

Q:  What makes your ‘Taco Truck’ so different?

A:  First, we don’t even sell tacos, second we don’t just sell food but we are a community hub for health conscious people and are educating youth on organic gardening. (link)

I wonder what the ’10s will bring for Mission ‘food culture’?  Hopefully a little less pretentiousness.  SFoodie, food journalism’s equivalent to Fox News, continues to refer to the “alt food“ trend as a “movement” and “revolution.”  Kind of a shame; I used to really enjoy eating from the generally delicious food carts, but now I have such a hard time looking past the fact that I’m walking right into a narcissistic Twitter circle jerk every time I stroll down Linda St.  Henry Ford invented the automobile.  When are you guys going to figure out that you just toss salad?

San Francisco Craftbombing

Deeply Superficial People says they went out craftbombing the other weekend.  I never even knew such a thing existed.  So cutting edge.

Sounds like my mother moved to Cali.
