  • Massive Messy Game of Twister and Water Fight in Dolores Park

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:36 am
    Just got invited to this on Facebook. While it may be a bit irresponsible during the epic water crisis California is in, it sounds pretty fucking awesome. Also, not to be too much of whiny Jewish mother, but I do hope they put a tarp down so that the paint in the Twister game doesn’t get all over the grass.  If you do decide to take part at least spend the rest of your time conserving water using our Guerrilla Water Conservation Tips (Greywater water balloons anyone?). Anyways, here’s the info I’m copying and pasting from the FB invite: We’re setting up a massive…
  • FREE Yoga and Juice Tasting This Saturday in Dolores Park

    I know I’m not a pillar of health. Hell, if we’re making pillar comparisons I’m far closer to the pillar of salt that Lot’s Wife turned into in the bible than anything else. That said, I know some of you motherfuckers love yoga and juice and other healthy stuff. So that’s why I’m co-sponsoring this event with The Sub and Thistle. It’s FREE yoga and juice tasting!  You feel me? Good. Here’s all the info that I’m taking directly fem the FB event page: This Saturday, Thistle in collaboration with The SUB and Broke-Ass Stuart present a FREE…
  • How to Survive as a Broke-Ass Writer: What to Do When You’re Robbed and Displaced

    Jordannah Elizabeth - Commonwealth Columnist

    I recently had my $2,000 2011 Macbook Pro literally stolen right from under me. I was living in some ghetto loft hostel space in the Tenderloin near Great American Music Hall, and I was relatively content there until the shady owner of the place began to raise the rates…and of course, he kicked me out when I was robbed and expected them to do something about it. Three weeks later, I am mostly back on my feet with a new computer and a new outlook on how shitty this city can be. I learned a few tips on how to survive when you’re a broke-ass writer and lose your most important possession:…
  • Win Two Tickets: NEW EDITION!

      (the crowd goes wild) I was born in a post-Bobby Brown New Edition era. So, my allegiances lie with Johnny Gill. For most of my cousin’s summer, Can You Stand The Rain played as her life’s soundtrack through her pink Panasonic FM15 portable boombox. And since she was three-years older than me, and we were as thick as thieves, it served as the soundtrack to my summer as well. Did I mention my mother dressed us in matching outfits? By entering below you’ll be doing yourself, and your childhood, a favor. Don’t front and pass this off as a guilty pleasure, if…

  • Have You Started Getting Ready for Hard Times, by L.S.

    When Paul Revere’s alarm, “The Redcoats are coming!”, was sounded through the countryside centuries ago, it was made to people who were prepared to meet a challenge. Whether the coming challenge in our present day is one of economics or something else, will you be prepared to respond when the alarm is sounded? Here are some ideas you should consider as you get started in your preparations for whatever hard times might await: Food Will you have enough food? Go down to Costco and buy a 50-lb bag of rice. It’s inexpensive, stores well, and can go a long way. Canned goods…
  • Letter Re: Cottage/Local Manufacturing After SHTF

    I am a former dressmaker, with considerable experience in making clothing, and I appreciated the article on doing this for barter. However, there are problems. The first is fabric. Presumably the sensuously idyllic pleasures of going to the fabric shops in the garment district of New York City will no longer be an option. Too charred. Apart from that, while there are a few scattered fabric stores here and there, they are steadily going out of business, as fewer and fewer people sew. For the most part, assuming you can get there and assuming they are intact, they carry mostly low quality,…
