Tyme’s process

Street artist Tyme sent us this cool timelapse of him putting a piece up on a streetside door.

New Hot Lunch video

Local band Hot Lunch have a sweet new music video out for a sweet song, “She Wants More”. In it they use Sutro Tower to broadcast their song all over the city, shred all kinds (musical instruments and skateboards) and rock it at El Rio.

It’s so hot today, everything’s in sloooooooow motion

One of the latest from Jeff Diehl, who’s also responsible for Spots Unknown, which has featured all sorts of cool, nostalgic posts like this and this.

Damn.  Now I want some ice cream.

The Real (fake) Wolverine

Sure, they have movies at places like The Metreon, where you can get some fro-yo in the lobby, or Sundance Kabuki Cinemas where you can pay a mandatory convenience fee because they compost, or you can see a movie at The Balboa, where they show you a whole ‘nother mini movie before the actual movie! Check out The Wolverine, starring a few buddies of ours:

Peek into the crazy fun Pride party that went down at El Rio (NSFW)

Everyone’s making a big deal about Miley Cyrus’ performance at the VMAs last night, but they probably would have completely lost their shit had they been at the El Rio Pride party last month. Luckily, Courtney Trouble has managed to capture all of the excitement from the party in one amazing (NSFW) video, so do yourself a favor and check it out!

Another take on hating San Francisco

I don’t know if I’ve ever been so offended while laughing out loud at the same time in all my life. Something tells me that if our good buddy Peter Shih took this tongue-in-cheek approach instead of dissing homeless people and “49ers,” he might still be able to live in this city without getting spit on everywhere he goes.

Check out the whole video for a surprise visit by the Tamale Lady (not the mural version), as well as some poignant commentary on gentrification, starring everyone’s favorite albino alligator.

Before & After

Cool short video piece by local filmmaker Bradley Tangonan. Tight editing.

Fourth of July fun

Please watch this video of some fun being had on Mission Street yesterday afternoon. Soundtrack by Cyndi Lauper. It’s only 15 seconds long, so do stick around for the twist ending. Click to view:

Gay wedding in a bong

I’m as happy as anyone about the recent changes to human rights laws as they pertain to same sex couples. So here’s a video of a couple getting married during Pride weekend in a giant bong.

A look back at the Needles and Pens 10 Year Anniversary Show

Did you make it to the Needles and Pens 10 Year Anniversary Show last month? (Fun fact: I arrived there in a cop car.) If you missed it, a couple of talented folks over at Inventory Magazine have produced this dreamy video with some of the highlights.
