Are there any cities with fashion shows featuring runaways?

Call this my last good deed of the year. 

 

 

I'm delighted to announce the next screening of Lost Landscapes of San Francisco (Year 7) on Tuesday, January 8 at Internet Archive in San Francisco.

PLACE AND TIME: 300 Funston Avenue (corner Clement), San Francisco.
Tuesday, January 8. Doors open 6:30. Show 7:30.

DIRECTIONS to Internet Archive:
http://archive.org/about/contact.php#directions

ADMISSION: $5 or 5 books for Internet Archive's book scanning project.

First shown at the Castro Theatre on December 11, this year's show
consists of 75% new material plus a few sequences repeated by popular
demand. You'll see an eclectic montage of rediscovered and rarely-seen film clips showing life, landscapes, labor and leisure in a vanished San Francisco as captured by amateurs, newsreel cameramen and studio filmmakers.

New sequences in this high-definition program include the
Japanese-American community in the Western Addition before redevelopment; shipwrecks off the Northern shoreline; 1930s demonstrations against the shipment of scrap metal to Japan; family films from the Richmond, Sunset and Excelsior Districts; rediscovered films of San Francisco transit; and newly discovered, never-shown documentary footage of Market Street, the waterfront and Rincon Hill. Much of the show has been scanned from Kodachrome and original 35mm material.

As usual, this year's Internet Archive screening is an interactive
experience: audience members will BE the soundtrack, identifying places and events, asking questions, loudly discussing San Francisco's part and future as the film unreels.

It's pretty cool and the archive is in a great space.

I really only have myself to blame for running across the Golden Gate Bridge on a sunny Sunday afternoon, but the cluelessness of the pedestrians on the GGB defies belief. I guess they'd rather take a shoulder in the chest than step aside for a brother tryna get his run on.

On a stretch between Marin and the Marina, they were probably just shocked to see one.

Tooch.

So Google flew me out to the bay for an interview and I'm at a loss for what makes this area so special. I went to a well reviewed restaurant and thought any well reviewed dc restaurant could easily give it a run for its money. Outside of the main city is everything is so spaced far out, I'd be losing an hour of my life traveling around, And shit is stupid expensive. $100 for a cab? Fuck that....

You are from DC? I'd take SF over DC in a heartbeat.
post #1634 of 2709
DC people can't be helped. They suffer from a mass delusion. Besides, Mountain View has nothing to do with San Francisco.

Hey all - I'm looking to live and work in the city after having spent my undergrad in Boston. For those who may be familiar with Back Bay and South End - do people have areas they would recommend in SF that are comparable? biggrin.gif
