Same As It Ever Was

The Week Intro is back in action and will consistently offer you fabulous ways to spend your time, now that my Ecuadorian sabbatical is complete. Dude, it's Noise Pop ticket buying time. Or it was. Did your friends buy you tickets while you were out of the country? If not, you and I need new friends. And now for some interesting links to read while you are at work not working. Even though this article resembles something as sporadic and a bit unfocused as I would have written in undergrad, I think the point is I get to drive more. Also, during the primaries, I received many links to some sappy Obama campaign video. My sis sent me this very effective complement. I love me some poignant political parody. Additionally, your phone company probably let Bush eavesdrop...so sign up for Credo? Or learn semaphore. Wednesday, February 20th:
  • February Birthday Show 7-10pm. Jessy is too humble to make this her show, even though she was the brainchild and executor. Brought to you by the lunar eclipse
Thursday, February 21st:
  • Learn about the Transportation and Land Use Coalition 5.30pm. Seems f'ing great, plus you get burritos if you write to rsvp@transcoalition.org
  • Schools and Housing and Healthcare Not Bombs discussion at Providence Christian Center 220 Turk 6pm free
  • Global Exchange has mad stuff going on tonight
  • Wish You Were Here! CITY/SPACE opening night. No Floyd involved, just rethinking of kitchy "Frisco" souvenirs 6-9pm
  • Art Opening at Simple Pleasures. And you can help them clean up debris from Jessy's party last night
  • Food Not Bombs at 16th St BART 5pm. I think knives are provided, but you could probably ask most any person in that area to borrow theirs
  • Station 40 is showing Delicatessen at 9pm 3030B 16th St/Mission. Just in case anyone gets inspiration from this film, I'm glad it's showing after Food Not Bombs
Friday, February 22nd:
  • Irrigation systems class at Garden for the Environment 10-1pm free. Not just hippies relieving themselves in the backyard
  • Sometimes I think MyOpenBar is too snarky for their own good, but I still check their website to make fun of them making fun of stuff. This week turned serendipitous, as it alerted me to a free Thao Nguyen show at UC Berkeley at noon. Hopefully I'll make it back to the BART by midnight, because that's when it ridiculously stops running
  • de Young Museum got some krazy music art stuff that is free and not free. Vague, but there is a good make-out bunker in the patio
  • Art opening and baked goods at Tartine 18th/Guerrero 9-11pm. The last time I hit up an event at this venue, some dude who worked at Second Life hit on me and I ate lots of non-vegan things. My stomach felt ill for many reasons
Saturday, February 23rd:
  • Some crazy tomato cash treasure hunt, art walk, and frozen mass movements, say the MyOpenBar lushes
  • Alemany Farm workday 12-5pm. Dig it
  • How free is it? The Really Really Free Market is taking control of ArtSpan at 1-5pm 110 Capp/16th
  • Chinese New Year parade 5.30pm. Guess where it is
  • Fecal Face Dot Gallery opening at 66 Gough/Market 5-8pm, then the afterpartyhotellobby 9-? at The Uptown 17th/Capp
  • French Miami at Thee Parkside for the ScatterBrain Jamboree $10. Music and money for the AIDS Foundation
Sunday, February 24th:
  • If all that moola you saved at the Really Really Free Market is burning holes in your pockets, spend it on new pockets at IndieMart 12-5pm 12 Galaxies. Cute local designers, cute local shoppers
  • Fort Gallery's throwing down with a BBQ and music 1pm. Cost? The mental effort of finding the place, plus maybe a little cash
  • Volunteer orientation for Noise Pop 5-7pm 2900 20th St. Yea for free concert entry. Oh yeah, and helping others
Monday, February 25th:
  • Hypocrital Oath? Retired military med talks about health professionals and torture 12pm UCSF free
  • Cinewhore! presents the cinematic experience of Klute. See how old famous people got famous, whilst enjoying "Snacks, smut give aways, performance, and post film discussion 6.30pm doors, 7.30pm show at ATA $5-more donation
  • Bluegrass at Amnesia 8.30pm. No charge for yee-hawing

Don't worry, tickets to the show are being sold at the door. Cafe du Nord probably cut the pre-sale quantities assuming it was going to draw some people.
