In SF that’s pretty easy considering how many dudes think it’s acceptable to wear North Face fleeces to everything (seriously, if this is you, you should not be allowed to get laid), but even outside of SF I feel like I hold my own. I’ve accumulated a pretty amazing collection of blazers, shirts, and pants, but it’s always hard too find a full, well fitted suit. You wanna know why? Because,…

      OMG, my person has done it again. Fact: The only thing better than a dog, is one in costume. Unfortunately, they don’t always agree. Couple this with the fact that store-bought, pet costumes are often expensive, it makes sense to make your own. Here are some super easy, DIY Halloween costumes for your pup. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Disguise with Paint I’m not a Golden Retriever, I’m a Tiger!   When it comes to painting your dog, the options are pretty endless. But don’t be a jackass and…
  • Report: Taylor Swift NYC Ambassador, Gentrifies The Gentrified, Makes Me Want To ‘Kanye’ Her Again

    They say it takes ten years to become a New Yorker. I have, what I assume will be, a short six years left to go but I am in absolutely no rush to become a New Yorker. What does becoming a New Yorker even mean, really? I have lived in major cities all of my life and although New York has always been special, I (unlike many imported young creatives and struggling actors from fly-over states) never felt the need to jerk off while thinking about how great New York is. And that’s not to say that it’s not great, because it is, but part of what makes it great is its realness. I am one of…

    The Guide for a Single Man and The Guide for a Single Woman are the first of their kind. Not sequels, not prequels, but equals. These two comedic novels can be read in either order to learn both sides of the story of – Four thirtysomethings drinking and flirting their way through New York’s bars one typical Friday night…before things get crazy. After too many beers, Devin and Les meet Cheryl and Erin and the night suddenly gets interesting. They discover why being single is like being on a constant bar crawl, why you don’t ever want to “get lucky,” and how the lines between…

    Beth Dean started throwing this party at her own expense as her love letter to San Francisco. “A weird, cool and cheap party seemed like everything San Francisco is all about, and it was insane to me to have to pay $30 to get into a club on Halloween, so I started throwing my own party, and it’s become bigger every year. As far as I know, this is one of the cheapest Halloween parties in town, you can get into the party and get a beer and some rock and roll and San Francisco-style entertainment for under $10.” And you can purchase tickets at the door!

  • Survival To Go, by JMD – Part 2

    In my checked bag, when flying, I put a small zippered case that contains: A Gerber Folding Sheath Knife, which is a good trade-off between size/weight and capability. I’ve found that most people (LEOs in particular) tend to be a lot less suspicious of folding knives than fixed-blade ones. A Boker Plus Credit Card Knife. I put this in my pocket if I’m going out for an evening and I can’t bring my EDC kit, because it’s completely unobtrusive in a front pocket. It’s not necessarily the most robust knife in the world, but it’s the same size as a credit card and…

    Hello Hugh, I just wanted to pass on that the article you posted on Monday, the 27th, ER Doctor: What Scares Me Even More Than Ebola, made the rounds amongst the nurses, doctors, and some of the EMTs in the mid-sized hospital emergency room where I work, and every single person that read it was in total agreement that it was the most sound and well thought-out plan for dealing with wide spread pandemic infectious disease, whether Ebola or what ever the next wave might be. I have my doubts about it being taken to heart and applied nationally, but perhaps in some proactive communities it could…
